Mumbi Phiri wants Bowman and Brian Mushimba arrested

Share

Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has called for the arrest of Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo and Higher Education Minister Brian Mushimba for breaching Covid-19 prevention measures by mobilizing huge crowds for campaigns on the Copperbelt.

Mrs. Phiri has described the conduct of the Kabushi and Kankoyo lawmakers as irresponsible considering the outbreak of the pandemic with no respect for social distancing and other measures outlined.

Addressing the media in Lusaka today, Mrs. Phiri condemned the two ministers saying nobody is above the law and has called on the police to take charge and not spare anyone so that the covid-19 prevention measures are adhered to by all.

“I don’t know why the Police is letting people when we have Covid and we have the guidelines, even me when holding a press briefing I call Ichitintangombe (multitudes), come and arrest me,” Mrs Phiri said

“We saw with dismay the crowds that our Honourable Member of Parliament and Provincial Minister for Lusaka Bowman Lusambo pulled on the Copperbelt, that is not under the new normal. You as Police, what are you doing? Are you scared of arresting us as leaders?”

“We saw the same with our Minister of Education when we have a high number people dying of Covid in Mufulira and you go and have such a crowd,” she said.

Efforts to get both Mr. Lusambo and Dr. Mushimba on the matter proved futile by broadcast time as their mobile phones went unanswered.

  1. The Police wouldn’t dare arrest Bowman, the bulldozer and the President’s number 1 bootlicker. Mwalaba shani bamayo ba Mumbi? Are you going to look after their children when they are fired? Have you forgotten what happened to the Sesheke cops who arrested PF cadres? What more senior cadres like Bowman?

  2. Is Mumbi Phiri taking some weed? Why would Mrs Phiri personally want her colleagues arrested for violating Covid-19 Guidelines? Surely they are disciplinary Procedures in PF to be followed in disciplining Members? This is a PF Party issue and not Mumbi Phiri’s personal issue. When will the Circus in the Panga Family come to an end? There must be more serious issues to attend to than this Fake Police Report.Mrs Phiri should tells why KBF is being barred from attending the PF Convention? Why risk electing ECL as a PF Presidential Candidate when his Eligibility is likely to be Petitioned after Nominations are closed on May 14, 2021. Is ECL guaranteed that Concourt will approve ECL’s Third Term attempt? We shall see!

  3. Last I knew, Lusambo was going around beating people with his stick for not masking-up or social distancing. I guess he’s forgotten all about that… as well as his “heartfelt” billboard?

    Else, I have to agree Phiri makes a good point – that is until you see she and her own lackeys are also failing to wear their masks or social distance! What a cabal. The guy on the left looks high and no one else is paying attention at all while she pontificates.

    Probably the only thing left is to lock Phiri and Lusambo in a cage match and sort it out that way? Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!!

  4. I have been advising PF to throw away that Lusambo, he has messed up the party.
    From distributing cash, beating alcoholics to never mind, just toss him in trash.

  5. Mumbi Phiri is only a Deputy SG in PF so how can she take a Personal decision to have 2 Comrades arrested? If the 2 Cadres broke Party Rules they should be punished after following PF Disciplinary procedures. Mumbi Phiri cannot do this to PF Colleagues without first of consulting the SG and President of PF. PF is Chipante pante which does things without following procedures if any. This just a Circus to say the least.

  6. This lusambo thug nerds to produce his grade 12 certificate. What O’levels subjects did he pass.

    I doubt if he has one. Been a fraud holding that position. This is what happens when crooks and thieves get into government positions.

    It starts with the president who is a thief by trade

  7. SHOCKING BUT THIS IS OUR GOVERNMENT IS .. ” SETS OF RULES
    ONLY ONE SOLUTION AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT IS
    MAKE ZAMBIA GREAT AGAIN
    2016 x 10 JUST A PREDI*CTION…

  8. Isn’t Mumbi an RN? I think she is think better than those two cadres who want to win at all costs. Even loss of life or life long effects from Covid infection means nothing to winning an election for a failed party.

  9. There must be a UPND gathering on the horizon to counter PF………prempting the police to act…

    Now the police will act………

    PF duping the masses………

  10. IS BOWMAN LUSAMBO ABOVE THE LAW?
    Who is Bowman Lusambo to just think he is above the law and can just take the law into his own hands and whip citizens? We are all scared of Covid 19 and it is imperative that people adhere to the health regulations so that we defeat the scourge. But to take the law into your own hands and whip citizens which is an abrogation of human rights is not tolerable and we shall meet Bowman Lusambo in the courts of law.
    I had an altercation at Kapiri Mposhi/Serenje turnoff in 2019 with Bowman Lusambo. The power-hungry Junior Minister was busy threatening people and pushing motorists off the road for him to pass. I reminded him that he was a junior minister who had no privileges of a “sweeper” and the monster came for my throat threatening to “deal” with me. I…

  11. I love my party in that it shows the tenants of democracy. We have non partisan politics even within our party. If ba mumbi believes my brothers broken the law then let them face the courts without fear or favour. No one is scared. I’m sure my brothers will be open to explain their side of the story. Such can never happen in upnd because they will shield their leader even when he caused the death of two innocent people. Tribal politics

    • He should make sure that London is not one of those place, he will come to, as I will be waiting nicely to sort his issues out.

  12. Well done Mrs Mumbi Phiri. She has got bowls because this is a direct attack on the Sender General himself. Bowman has clearly said who sent him to do what he is doing. Is Mumbi on her way out? Has she seen the light?

  13. HE WONT GET TO DUBAI BELIEVE ME THAT IS A KNOWN FACT … REMEMBER KAIZER SAID HE IS A BLACK BELT WELL I CHECK IT IS TRUE
    HE HAS A BLACK BELT BOUGHT FROM SOWETO MARKET
    AND THAT LUSAMBO WILL GET A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE
    I TRUST HIS PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED FOR ANOTHER PAIR OF EYES AS HE HAS UPSET A LOT OF PEOPLE

  14. This is really trying to divert attention to the real issue. The law was broken in broad day light and so they don’t need to be instruct to make an arrest if they are professional. If this is the state of our police service, it is unfortunate. What about the money they are distributing, is that normal or am I missing something? Naleka

  15. Mwenkonko mwe, nkalani panzi chabe. I thought you were advocating for the arrest of Lusaka for money laundering?

  16. F00lish computer scientist,I already vowed to run naked from arcades to mandahill if pf lose. I have asked the upnd baboons to commit to the same when upnd lose. I am still waiting so what are they scared of?

  17. Bowman Lusambo and Mushimba have one thing in common with ladies of the night…they’re superspreaders.

  18. “my party shows the tenants of democracy” -Kaizar Zulu
    Hahaha , this Kachasu English shows why Zambia is in dire straights coz we have ill educated kantemba party members in charge.

  19. Mlevi I am no master of English but even a mad man knows what an oversight looks like. Tenant and tenets can be easily typed in due to predictive text. Some of you think speaking excellent English is making it in life. Brainwashed baboons

  20. PF is a party full of Lumpa Lumpas. They have no direction for the country whatsoever. When are they going to create employment for the people? It is sad to see people suffering in country with a lot of resources. Lungu is a corrupt mother phaka and he needs to go to prison.

  21. KAIZER BUDDY JUST YOUR NAME APPEARING ON HERE WITH NO COMMENT GETS THE THUMBS DOWN 90 % KIKIKI
    DOESNT THAT REFLECT A DISLIKE FOR YOU AND YOUR SPINNING ??

  22. All those who were humiliated & brutalized last year by whipping, here is your chance to report him to the police for breaking the same law. Hypocrites & lawbreakers have no place in Zambia. Get your pound of flesh now. Madam Phiri will be your star witness.

  23. So LT are happy to have this KZ on this platform for nonsense. KZ is a PF surrogate and must be stopped. Cybercrime bill should start with people like mother sucker Kaizer Zulu who is ever BLIND, cannot see none wrong with ECL at the expense of poor Zambians. Sad indeed.
