Feature Politics Zambia Police institutes Investigations on UPND's Mubita Nawa Video

Zambia Police has said that it has instituted investigations in a video that has gone viral where UPND cadre in the company of UPND presidential assistant for special duties is seen demeaning the Head of State.

Police Spokesperson Esther Mwata Katongo said that the police will investigate the matter to the letter.

In her reaction to the video, Mrs Katongo said that it is unfortunate that politicians can behave in such a manner.

“This is why we always remind politicians to do clean politics,” she said.

“The moment we arrest the people involved in the video, there will be an outcry that the police are victimizing the opposition. But investigations have been instituted,” she said.

And Government Deputy Chief whip Tutwa Ngulube has charged that a UPND cadre, presidential assistance for special duties Mubita Nawa must be arrested for demeaning the Head of State.

Hon Mr Ngulube who is also Patriotic Front (PF) Member of the Central Committee says demeaning a Republican President is treason.
Hon Ngulube says treason is a serious case, therefore, those involved must not be spared.

In an interview, he says the police must not wait for instructions to arrest the perpetrators because they have evidence. The lawmaker says the police have powers to effect an arrest whenever they have evidence at their disposal. Hon Ngulube says the law must take its course on this matter so that such acts must be curbed.

“This time around the police must not even take time to take action on this two,” he said.

“The law is very clear. demeaning the Head of State is not a misdemeanor, it is treason,”.

A video has gone viral on social media were a UPND cadre in company of Mr Nawa was demeaning the Republican President Dr EdgarChangwa Lungu.

The Vehicle damaged by PF cadres

Meanwhile, Zambia Police in Lusaka has arrested five suspects for the offences of Malicious damage to property and Assault, in connection with the fracas that happened at the Patriotic Front Secretariat on Saturday in which Innocent Kalimanshi was Assaulted and his motor vehicle damaged.

On 1st May, 2021, at 11 00 hours, police followed up a report that Innocent Kalimanshi aged 40 had forced his way into the PF secretariat using a Ford Ranger Motor Vehicle which did not go well with the PF cadres who extensively damaged his motor vehicle and assaulted him and in the process of whisking him away, a police motor vehicle registration number ZP 2600B was damaged and one officer identified as Sargent Siita Akakandelwa was injured by caders who begun throwing stones at the police. Investigations have continued while the suspects remain detained in police custody.

“As Zambia Police, we shall not tolerate any criminal conduct hence anyone who will be found wanting will be dealt with in accordance with the law. What political players need to know is that the law is blind and does not look at any individuals political affiliation as no one is above the law,” the statement concluded

  3. I cannot believe what Hon Ngulube a learned person is saying that demeaning a president, one can be charged for treason. The word treason has been abused by politicians who are greed. On the other is not good to demean our president. It is important to look at the intent of the context

  4. Is this the same Nawa who popped onto the local scene a couple of years ago as a motivational speaker? I read one of his interviews in which he said he had been an apprentice of sorts under TD JAKES. I wonder what the preacher can think of him now. Nawa, yet another Wally for Bally.

  5. Police and LT Stop being vague! What is to demean? UPND members were demeaning Lungu. How? Some fool here is talking about treason. Defamation cannot become treason unless we are in a banana republic. Why should Police be investigating a case of defamation when we have more serious cases of people stealing land like Tasila did when she fenced of state forests, We have more serious cases of people gassing citizens, Ministers giving themselves tenders etc.
    “The moment we arrest the people involved in the video, there will be an outcry that the police are victimizing the opposition” Yes you will be victimizing them because in any self respecting Democracy this is a case between Lungu and whoever he alleges defamed him. Police cant be doing investigations on defamation of anyone!

  6. Ba LT stop being silly what are you moderating? Because I criticize Lungu and also poor laws that are incongruent with democracy doesn’t mean I should be moderated. Moderate Kaizar Zulu!

  7. Bakapokola should focus on real crimes in Zambia. It’s shameful that there is so much focus on things that do not help an average Zambian and until we as people are awakened to important issues in the country, we will never develop.

Can someone please define STA****OK for me. What does it really mean? I thought it means someone being a star in a way.

  10. Thanks. The highest organ of UPND has unreservedly apologised concerning the 6 months old video however hard it was for them. Damage control and image building is taking prominence in the mind of Anthony Bwalya and company.

  11. Investigation is going on so we can’t assume
    Nawa is guilty.may be the smile can make him guilty.But law does not work like that.lets
    Wait for the courts to rule.

  12. Unfortunately, most newcomers into politics have been misled to believe that being insolent is part of political discourse. CK is a perfect example. On this platform I said when they finally have him by the balls he’ll squeal like a hog. Now he’s gone back crawling to the same people he insulted. Mubita Nawa and Anthony Bwalya will soon end up in jail and the UPND won’t even remember them. Please moderate your language

  13. This is the wakeup call for Zambia. It’s high time that we took a conscious decision if we want to support the criminals and their master or we want to save the motherland. If they can be so unruly in opposition, imagine what they will do if came to power!

  14. This is the second crime by a criminal out on bail. Remember, this Mubita Nawa is a criminal who forged NRC and voter cards? What more evidence one needs to expose this anti social elements?

  15. This is the second case when Hakainde Hichilema is standing with criminals. He has the history of shielding the criminals. After Chellah Tukuta, now it is Mubita C Nawa, another blue eyed boy of HH! Congratulations, UPND! Your master is busy supporting the criminals even as leaders are abandoning the party.

  16. He is not motivational speaker, he is a criminal. Remember, he was recently arrested along with Anthony Bwalya for cheating and forgery? They forged NRC and voter cards to frame PF. They were caught red handed showing those forged documents on TV!

  17. This is the right decision to take. Now the truth will come out. HH will be exposed for shielding criminals. I hope the investigations are completed fast and Mubita Nawa gets the punishment.
