  2. Why is it so difficult for UPND to practice clean politics. I always ask myself a QUESTION, if Edgar is beatable, why is upnd wasting so much time talking about Edgar.

    I am always encouraging upnd to beat Edgar thru the ballot box. You gain nothing by insulting Edgar. You are making him popular every other day.

    Get my advice ba upnd.

  5. I hope the PiyeF00l police are capable of analyzing the video for alterations.

    …otherwise, there’s no case here. Unfortunately, the police are ‘incapable’ of catching PiyeF00l cadres who allegedly altered the said video 🙁

  6. Banana Republic. Everyday arresting people over so called defamation. How did we get to this kind of a govt? ECL cannot hide behind presidency. He is not above reproach in a constititional democracy. What is defamation ?-“the action of damaging the good reputation of someone”. This means at every turn the PF govt can decide when one is damaging the President’s reputation. ECL Koswe mumpoto!!

  7. KK led a one party government but he was never ‘1nsulted’ as Edgar has been. In such a short time his police have arrested more people for defaming him than all the previous presidents put together. The question must be asked, ‘Why?’ Is it because of the advent of shosho media? Is it because people are angry with him? Once upon a time there was a man called Kadansa who hurled 1insults at KK every day at Kulima Tower. Everyone just laughed and Kadansa was never arrested. Come 12 August, if there are free and fair elections we shall come to know why.

  8. The lungu assaults on anything him and his rats perceive as questioning lungus stealing is in full swing……..

    Meanwhile chilufa tiyalis troubles started when he posted a video saying how HH was the most financially displined of all politicians while some call it kaso, tiyali seemed to be praising HH…….the pf rats did not like that.

  9. What is defamation of the President? Why is he the only one in Zambia who can be criminally defamed? What is special about the Presidency that it should be protected by law from defamation? If 18 million other citizens arent protected similarly by the law doesnt this turn the President into a God? Why dont Zambian opposition leaders and members of parliament contest this law?

  10. ZP is good at analysing social media videos but when a PF minister is caught red handing stroking his rifle for a young girl or PF thugs are in a punch-up they become blind

    Really laughable this fooooolish boy Tayali, his mouth got him in trouble and he has a foreign teenage wife wit a baby who doesnt work and he has no tangible business with a revenue stream. He thought PF lawyers will come to his aide…really laughable..at least others you have tormented had money for lawyers.

  13. The late Sata used to make fun of the late President Mwanawasa.
    I remeber very well where he tore up a cabbage in front of cheering supporters ati this is your president. was he arrested? NNo because Mwanawasa was a true stateman and believed in free speech,
    What do we have now?

  15. When will these clowns learn that insulting ECL is not a joke or merely insulting an individual? That is the office of the president which is the highest office of this country Zambia. It seems upnd f00ls lack in morals. They say a party is a reflection of its leader. It is clear that hh lacks manners and is an ignorant deekhead. This foolish boy will know jesus when he is sat in prison for years while hh is in exile in diaspora after elections. Wembuuuwa we

  18. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “DONT FEED TROLLS.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take ANYTHING trolls say seriously. NO matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless UNPRODUCTIVE hours trying to make people mad. They’re not WORTH your time of day.

  19. Insulting, defaming any person in Zambia should be a crime! I am not aware that are set rules that only apply to the Prime Minister in UK. However you can not use vulgar, sexist or racial abuse to anyone without consequences.

    In Zambia we specifically create a law to protect the office bearer, which makes it very hard to criticise when the office bearer errs. It is a bad law which is being used to oppress citizens.

  20. There are foools who go on calling people to lie to them that they have won either airtel or mtn money and busy swindling unsuspecting people yet useless ZICTA and useless Zambia police fail to arrest the foools even with the stuupid cyber crime law. Now everyone man who aspires to be president must embrace all manner or criticism if they don’t they should simply stay away. Mwanawasa never behaved like a the foool currently in state house.

  21. This is a shameless waste of resources and manpower – not to mention the use of an archaic law that only dictatorships use to suppress dissent. Placing a poorly resourced Police at the whim of such a corrupt and most useless thuggery party ever. The police are not there in other areas that should serve the citizenry when needed. Yet, they are even made to keep people in custody over the so-called ‘defamation of the GREAT LEADER’. This should never even be in the criminal realm. The reason why normal defamation cases belong to the civil process is because the person suing has to prove that they were ‘injured’ in terms of their reputation or are now held in low esteem as a result. ECL doesn’t even have to know of the so-called defamation in this archaic criminalised arrangement. How…

  22. Mercury – In 2010 we were complaining about these colonial laws including PF but once they got into govt the tables turned they never bothered to change these laws even with numbers in Parliament…its a cycle of selfishness by our African politicians.

  23. On Tayali I think that’s intimidation because anyone could have said that he said in the circumstances. But for Mubita Nawa, what’s there to discuss? Even if Edgar weren’t a President who’d allow anyone to say that about another person?

  24. So by this same token this makes the current president the most defamed in the history of the country, doesn’t it? So the follow-up question to this is: Why is this?

  25. This is the good step taken by police. Criminals like Mubita Nawa belong to jail. This is the second time, he has committed a serious crime. First it was when he forged NRC and voter cards to defame PF government. This is the blue eyed boy of Hakainde Hichilema!

  26. Ironically, he committed the crime when he was out on bail! Now he should not be released on bail, he has become habitual offender.

  27. One can understand difference of opinion in democracy. Criticising the opponent is also understood. But using uncouth language for anyone, it is not just a matter of abusing the President, is not at all acceptable. Mubita Nawa has shown his culture to the entire nation. Now we know how he was brought up and why HH loves him so much. Both are on the same page, when it comes to grooming and culture.

  28. These unruly goons need to be taught a lesson for their lives. They are really abusing the freedom of expression. They stoop to any level to abuse women and now they have set a new low by abusing the President. Let them learn a lesson once and for all.

  29. Because crime is in their DNA. HH can’t do anything that is morally right and lawful. That’s why he needs people like Mubita Nawa, Chellah Tukuta and Anthony Bwalya around him. Hope you know that Anthony is co accused in cheating and forgery case with this Nawa!

  30. All those supporting HH and UPND should read this news carefully. This is the true face of the party, criminals, cheats and womanizers. Do you want these people in power?

  31. It is Mubuta Nawa today, it will be Anthony Bwalya tomorrow and then the law will catch up with Hakainde Hichilema. All of them are criminals and HH is the biggest of them.

  32. Let’s show zero tolerance to the abuse of any elderly person, irrespective of his position in the society.

  33. PF has won the elections, hands down. Take it from me. Such mindless leaders are digging their own grave.
