  1. Honestly its so true that never judge a book by its cover, I had always talked bad about the spiritual healers because I lived a very good life with a nice business and had a nice family with my husband and our two kids. I always thought that they were scammers and crooks and I never believed that anyone can solve someone’s problems . I could rudely reply to the posts about the healers with insults little did I know that one day they will help me. It started when a strange disease attacked one of my kids for several months. The eldest child could get an attack and he faints with lots of saliva from his mouth and mucus fluids from his nose. I visited most of the big hospitals in South Africa but the doctors couldn’t see the disease. I went to pastors, certain healers, prophets and priests but couldn’t see any change. I sold all of my properties and lost my businesses since I didn’t have time for them as wanted to save my son’s life. We lost everything. My husband started losing interest in me, disrespected me, insulted me in front of our kids, all my in-laws hate me. He always said that I had a curse of bad luck that I brought to the family. I was left with no hope. The worst point of it is when my husband started cheating on me with a rich well-known business woman which I won’t mention her name. I got depressed and wanted to kill myself. One of my closest friend noticed my situation and I explained to her what was going on in my life. She just gave me a phone number and told me that just a single call will be a solution to all my problems. My friend called profisma and made an appointment to go to his office and on that date, my friend picked me very early in the morning and took me there. I explained everything to her. He asked us to go back and bring the sick kid and we did so. He cast his spells and after a few hours, my son was healed and never had the attacks again up to date. After three days my husband came back home and apologized to me. He gave me a ring for my business and as I speak now am not complaining. I got back everything. Call or whatsapp him on +27783320386. Really he made me have life again

  2. Patience pays. I told you all to remain patient and await the authorities to carry out detailed investigations before throwing all sorts of allegations and conspiracy theories. People like hh were in fore front accusing us of doing nothing in this case. Although the shooter is now known I believe hh is vicariously liable for these deaths due to his non compliance with police advice. He needs to face the law. I will continue praying. I love my born again life. I feel new

  7. The officer’s tribe will show that he is a fall guy. If he is not from that tribe, he will be charged, tried and along the way acquitted for conflicting evidence such as- no postmortem to prove that the victims died from high velocity missile object propelled from his firearm….
    The trial will go on to next year and if someone is re-elected, end of story. The P.I.G. is getting his contract renewed in July. He is an asset for elections.

  8. The suspects have been identified who are they? Only officers had firearms there…so if they are police officers are they still working? This is shambolic reporting by this former Katondo St boy..Lazy Lungu should be releasing this news via a press conference but he is a coward.

  9. Boza.

    There can not have been a single shooter!

    I hope families had conducted a private autopsy to compare ballistics.

    The truth will come out.

  10. They have not identified, when you identify you give the names, who have they identified? HH is a clean man, reason why he will be in plot 1 come August 12. You same people used to say that Sata can’t rule, he became one of the best Presidents like HH he will be few months from now. Watch this space Bwana HH hater.

  12. Akaps I only said that hh is vicariously liable as had he heed the advice that was given, non of this would have happened. Let’s wait and see what our prosecutors decide to do.

    Btw to everyone here what is the English word for sokanda? My maids daughter was asking

  13. This is a cover up no doubt. Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda were shot dead at two different locations which would seem to suggest there were 2 shooters/snipers. The issue is who gave orders to ZPS to use alive ammunition on unarmed innocent Civilians? What type of a gun (s) and bullets were used? Clearly we need a Judicial investigation in these killings. An Inquest would establish the truth about these killings. ZPS stand accused of committing these extrajudicial killings so they cannot investigate themselves. We urgently need an Independent Investigator in this matter.

  14. @ Kaizar Zulu, lol your last comment has made my day. I normally prefer to not comment over matters still under in investigation and just read through comments, analysing how people think. Anyway, I digrace, doesn’t sokanda mean worm???? I stand corrected.

  15. Zambians, you read the clarification whatsapp is giving after users started abandoning the application massively. Lesson learnt, never underestimate your worth.

  16. This is an attempt to absolve himself and Kanganja from complicity in the matter. Kampyongo held a press conference the day before, warning of the use of force. This had already been planned – against people they knew would be unarmed. Their overzealousness through the reckless executions exposed them. There was no provocation from the supporters gathered. They sang songs and chanted in solidarity. But this was not going to deter the plan to ‘show force’, and twist the truth by shamelessly accusing the victims. This pretense to ‘following process’ is a cover up. Kampyongo and the IG should not be in office, let alone this regime – before we even round up the ones who opened fire.

  17. Quickly name the trigger man n who ever commanded him to use live bullets before we open the gassing mysterious assassinsations.

  18. So he thinks he is innocent?Is he not the one who warned that people who accompanied HH would be met with the full force of the law?Just wait sir august is soon,you will then learn the full force of the law

  19. We are told one shooter has been identified. Is it just one shooter? Whats the identity of the Shooter? Is he a Paratrooper (Policeman) or just a private Sniper? Who gave orders to use live ammunition and to shoot and kill unarmed and truly Civilians? There are more questions than answers.

  20. And our MPs accept this as comprehensive statement to parliament from the minister of Home Affairs on such an emotive issue? Our MPs – especially opposition ones should really be more demanding. This is a statement to parliament – its not as if he is issuing a statement at the airport to a Daily Mail reporter!

  21. What of that scum of a policeman who was pointing a gun at an unarmed UPND civilian in from of Cabinet Office looking so joyous to pull the trigger and take a life? That one must also be fished out and handed over to the relevant arms of the law so that capital punishment can be meted out. Now these trigger happy corrupt cops will realise that if they shoot anyone, they are alone!

  22. But I thought we all know it was Kainyokolola Zulu who fired the fatal bullets?

  23. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN LEADERS WHAT TO SUPPRESS THE TRUTH. KAMPYONGO WARNED STERNLT THAT THOSE WHO WERE TO ACCOMPANY OR OFFER SOLIDALITY TO HH WILL BE MET WITH THE FULL FORCE OFTHE POLICE COME RAIN OR SUNSHINE. THIS SAME WARNING WAS REINFORCED BY THE IG & PR EASTER KATONGO. AN APOLOGY WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE APPROPRIATE THAN MOVING IN CIRCLES. THE PF GOVT HAS BEEN TO RELEASE THE REPORT TO DPP BECAUSE OF NSAMA’S DEATH AND PROTEST BY STAFF AT DPP’S OFFICE. HAD IT JUST BEEN KILLING OF JOSEPH KAUNDA THE CASE WOULD HAVE DIED A NATURAL DEATH LIKE MANY OTHERS INVOLVING LAWRENCE BANDA ETC. GOVT AGENTS KILLED CITIZENS ALL IT NEEDS IS BEING BOLD BY THE MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS, OFFER PUBLIC APOLOGY TO THE FAMILY AND COUNTRY AT LARGE AND QUICKLY COMPENSATE THE FAMILIES AND LIFE GOES BUT WE HAVE…

  24. We are told the “Shooter has been identified ” so who is he? There were many heavily armed Policemen at the scene of the shooting so how was the shooter identified? Did the ZPS produce a Ballistic Report? Was the Shooter a Policeman or a Civilian? There are more questions than answers.

  25. Miles and njang remember they say that disrespecting your elders and those in authority will reduce your life on earth. You clowns are just shortening your lives.

  26. @ Kaizar Zulu
    ba Zulu I wonder whether you are not the man we need in the ConCourt and the Supreme Court. I think that your legal genius is such that we can scrap all other judges and just come before you to resolve all problems.
    Of course there is nothing wrong with the police investigating themselves. We all agree that we should be the only ones to hold ourselves accountable; next time my nephew steals biscuits I will ask him to find the culprit.
    And then to find that someone is vicariously liable for deaths caused by the criminal acts of another is true genius. You have managed to combine a civil legal concept (vicarious liability) with a criminal one (possessing mens rea and performing the actus reus). Of course it would require the Supreme Court to overturn pretty much all…

  27. Mr comment, I might decide to pursue legal studies. However at the moment I don’t see the point as I have more knowledge than some of these lawyers we see around the country. I learn from the university of life.

    @kale go and read the report into the gas case then come comment. You cannot compare the two. Here we have a case where a man who wants to lead our country player a role in the killing of innocent people. Think about that

  28. The press statement from Stephen Kampyongo on the identified shooter that caused the death of two Zambians would have been to inform the Zambian public that the identified person has been suspended pending further investigations by the Director of Public Prosecution to take the case to court for prosecution. Zambians are waiting with keen interest on this matter.

  29. Ba KZ, in case your question was not answered. Insoka-nda (stomach snakes literally) are intestinal worms, which are classified further as flat worms (e.g. tape worms) and round worms (e.g. hook worms).
