PF will treat Lawyer John Sangwa as a political opponent wherever he is found-Kennedy Kamba

Feature Politics PF will treat Lawyer John Sangwa as a political opponent wherever he...

The Patriotic Front (PF) Lusaka Leadership has directed all its members to turn out in numbers and show solidarity to President Edgar Chagwa Lungu when he appears before the Court whenever a date is set for hearing in his Presidential petition.

PF Lusaka Province Chairman MCC. Kennedy Kamba has also directed party members to treat the Lawyer John Sangwa as a political opponent wherever he is found.
Chairman Kamba said the party is not happy and is concerned on the misconduct being exhibited by Mr. Sangwa.

He said Mr. Sangwa is now playing politics as the matter of President Edgar Lungu’s illegibility has already been dealt with by the Constitutional Court.
He stated that the party will therefore treat him as a politician because he is politicizing the issue.

“What he is trying to do is politicize the matter when it has already been dealt with by the Constitutional Court. Therefore, We will no longer entertain this nonsense by John Sangwa,” he said.

“All our party Structures in Lusaka should come in numbers at the court premises when the matter comes up in Court and support our leader President Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Our members should come for the hearing whenever the Court sets the date.”

MCC. Kamba said the party is concerned by the misconduct Mr. Sangwa who seems to be extremely frustrated and bitter to an extent that he wants the law and the electoral code to be changed to suit his own selfish agenda.

“We know very well that people like John Sangwa who claims to be a renowned lawyer and a few individuals have formed a cartel to try by whatever means possible to drag President Lungu in the mud and try to paint him black in the eyes of Zambians when the Constitution was clear that he was eligible to stand,” he added.

He said the party will not allow President Lungu’s name to be dragged in Sangwa’s bitterness who has now gone to an extent of trying to compel the Court and the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to change the law to suit his bitterness and frustrations.

“We want to state clearly here that we will defend the Presidency and President Lungu. Even when the case comes up, we will be there to give solidarity,” he said.

Chairman Kamba further stated that John Sangwa and some political party leaders have been attempting to influence the minds of people into falsely believing that President Lungu was not eligible to stand in 2021.

“These people who are claiming that President Lungu is not eligible to stand are just trying to bring unnecessary debate and confusion because the Highest Courts of the land, the Constitutional Court interpreted the law accordingly and cleared President Lungu that he only served one term,” he said.

The Lusaka PF Boss has since warned the ANTI-ECL Cartel to stop the malice because they are embarrassing themselves and will not be taken kindly by the ruling party.

He has since urged Sangwa and all those who are excited and making weird claims about President Lungu’s eligibility, to begin to demonstrate sobriety because their hatred for the Head of State will not take them anywhere.

  1. What a lemon this samba is.

    He has not spoken anything sensible. He is encouraging violence in dealing with a reasonable challenge.

    I hope ECL stands but his comments are limited and ignorant.

    I hold a PhD

    Thanks

  2. ChiKamba zichindika, zambia is bigger than Edgar Lunga, He is not the messiah of Zambia. If the law says is not eligible who you PF to break the law?
    Mulemfwa insoni, the man you’re supporting is a lawyer who cant even interpret the law. He misguided the entire cabinet for his benift in 2016 and now he has managed to misguide or fool the entire PF because you are dull and so scared to tell him the truth or challange him.
    Let me take this opportunity to warn you, any attempt by PF Kaponya to harm Sangwa, means you harm all well meaning zambian and the consequence in well document in all the street of Zambia.

  3. My advice to Kennedy Kamba is that he should practice self-restraint, don’t be emotional. Further, don’t call multitudes to the Court because it contradicts your stance on HH’s nomination rally and contravenes covid-19 guidelines. There’s life after politics and you’ll not hold those positions forever.

    • Your advice to Kamba is wrong. The advice should be that he grows up. It is obvious that this cadre is still living in the time of lawlessness that humanity passed aeons ago. He wants mob violence to rule when we have courts to which a civilized Sangwa has resorted. This uncivil brat wants his party members to treat the Lawyer John Sangwa as a political opponent wherever he is found. How does the PF treat political opponents? Evidence shows it starts a fight with them and kills them. The PF leadership should shut this savage up.

  4. IGNORANT MAN , YOU ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TO BREAK THE LAW OF SOCIAL DISTANCING ,
    BUT ALSO UNDER THAT THIS IS DEMOCRACY AND MULTIPARTY DEMOCRACY.

    BUT VERY IMPORTANT THIS a reasonable challenge WITHIN THE LAW WITHOUT ANY MALICE AT ALL, NOTE THAT SANGWA IS PROTECTED BY THE LAW
    AND THE WHOLE NATION WITH HIM, ALSO KNOW THAT THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING HOW LUNGU AND THE PF ARE ABUSING THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM AND SOON WE HAVE YOU ALL BANNED AND AFTER ALL YOU ARE ALSO LOSING THE ELECTIONS , BUT THIS PROCESS HAS TO TAKE ITS CAUSE SADLY FOR YOURSELVES AND WE SHALL ALSO TURN IN NUMBERS TO JOIN SANGWA AND THE NATION AGAINST YOU ANEMIES OF THE NATION

  5. Even in hard trying times we will keep our cool. When this court hurdle is surmounted, it will soon be plain sailing. People have already voted. We are awaiting results, come August 13/14.

  6. Threatening violence for a noble cause is dangerous and these threat must be reported to police immediately. No one is above the law.

    PF is finished and these are the signs total disaster to come.

    You’re warned to find a, candidate but you thought it was just a joke.

    Time up, PF must go!

  9. Here we are gentlemen, what happens when civility is over taken by thugs?? Even LT can give this non.sense space ..but not my comment.

  10. Here is a case of zero leadership in this country at the moment …where is the SG and the President? Where is the Police? This is a recipe for disaster …what do you think the thugs in the city centre get from this message? Why is Sangwa a threat to you?
    This is where I detest Lungu’s leadership or lack of it as he is inept as they come under him this thuggish behaviour has become the norm.

  11. This is the time we need to hear from SG and the President himself who is a lawyer to put this moron Kennedy Kamba in his place and detach PF from his directives but as usual there is silence. This man needs to arrested.

  13. That photo says it all the man is wearing Lungu’s campaign hoodie and has a ZNBC microphone ….he is issuing what is only violent threats on an innocent Zambian citizen…can you imagine how galvanised this thugs will be when PF gets another 5 years under the inept leadership of this President. Where is the church …you will be next if you tolerate this thuggery!!

  14. LT stop moderating my comments …a clear and concise message needs to sent out…stop this selective moderation of bloggers comments!!!!!!

  15. WHEN HH WAS SUMMONED TO THE POLICE AND SOME SUPPORTERS WENT HE WAS CASTIGATED AND RIDICULED ,
    NOW THE PF IS SAYING WHEN LUNGU APPEARS THEY WANT ALL SUPPORTERS THERE,
    CAN NO SEE WHATS HAPPENING TO US ??? AND THE CONSTANT DOUBLE STANDARDS BEING APPLIED
    AND PF STILL HAS SUPPORTERS ?????????
    WAKE UP PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!

  16. Is this not what lawyers should be calling “Sub judice” or contempt of court (Kamba’s utterances)?

  17. The oppositions and some lawyers cannot initiate a good developmental song for the country. Failure to develop a strategy to win the election, they have copied the development that recently occurred in USA elections. The Democrats worked hard to impeach Trump so that he does not stand for election. They failed. Here, they are using eligibility to stop ECL to stand for election. The Democrats did not condemn violence. Here, they are in support of our Zambian Doctor in History predicting violence. There is a difference between ZED and USA elections. The democrats had a good song for people who do not want work but want to be fed. With that song and rigging they won. In Zed, we are a proud people, we want to work and not to be fed. It will not work pa ZED.

  18. Firstly, I would like to thank lusaka times for a great job they are doing to implement the cyber bill by effectively moderating upnd reaches like tarino and friends.

    This sangwa boy is being paid by that tribal cow boy hh. So let him be brave and fight us as politicians and not hiding behind courts. The constitution court ruled on this matter and yet hh who thinks he is winning is still trying to use backdoor methods of stopping the election. Upnd are scared of ECL. Right now I have the official prediction which shows ECL WINNING by 80 percent of votes

  20. Garlic – Don’t confuse a constitutional issue with politics …you don’t even understand US politics …really laughable…you are a clear example of the poor lazy reading culture in Zambia. I am embarrassed you even pressed the ‘Post Comment’ button!!

  21. Computer Scientist – So if Sangwa is a Red surrogate…why in the h ell would he petition all Vice Presidential candidates of all the Parties is that not an own goal? Please don’t be lazy and insecure like this moron Kamba commenting on issues that don’t concern him.

  22. @KZ,
    Be mindful, NOT everyone who comments here is a UPND.
    There is a selective few here, we are suffering from constant LT moderation of OUR inno.cent COMMENTs, which is VERY strange. Who said I am UPND??? Total MADNESS.
    LT has time to moderate our comments, and yet they are VERY POOR in proof reading their own articles, what sense does that make?

  23. In its current form, its as clear as day is from night that Mr Lungu does not qualify. If you have been sworn in twice, kufelile, kla, kwasila, kwamanu, chapwa, you do not qualify! This whole episode is going to end up tragically for many people, we all remember how the third term took Chiluba to his grave, Kamba. Lungu and Kainyokolola, you have been forewarned.

  24. Kamba says PF will treat Sangwa SC as a Political Opponent. How does PF treat its Political Opponents? Kill them? Axe them? Burn their Billboards and Regalia? That is why we say PF is Party of thugs. PF Cardres should leave PF Lawyers to deal with these legal and Constitutional matters. ECL in his Opposing Affidavit will deny having been elected and sworn in twice. The Petitioners will produce evidence showing that ECL was Elected and Sworn in twice and therefore cannot contest 2021 Elections for the Third Time. That’s why PF Cadres are threatening violence. They fear their Candidate might be disqualified by Concourt. PF Cadres want to force Concourt Judges to declare ECL eligible for 2021 Elections. We shall see.

    .

  25. It is sad that we are mixing legal and political matters. A citizen has a right to petition as provided for by the constitution. I would humbly appeal to everyone to wait until the concourt pronounces itself. Many are anxiously waiting for this outcome so that they can move on. It’s becoming an old song. I plead with everyone (on both sides) to be calm and patiently wait for the outcome of the petition. And please let’s maintain peace and order in our land in the spirit of one Zambia one Nation One people.

  26. I was expecting to be hearing what UPND will do if voted into power but its like the only thing we can hear now is how ECL is not eligible to stand. Given ECL is disqualified should Zambians vote for HH since he will have achieved his goal? The other day was Mweetwa calling Professor Luo a Man. Honestly you UPND supporters don’t you think the 2 months remaining should be used to close the gap which was between ECL and HH last time. With this behaviour another party can take over from PF just like PF took over from MMD when the normal situation should have been UPND taking over from MMD. Anyone who cares to reason properly knows that this issue of eligibility won’t stop ECL, so the only way is to get more votes than PF. UPND has spent the last 5 years in courts than engaging voters. Is…

  27. Edgar isn’t eligible, however if the PF have lawyers who genuinely passed at ZIALE then let them go further and deal with the 50% +1 vote threshold. Edgar got 47% so according to their interpretation he didn’t win because that’s what the current Constitution prescribes. Don’t force matters, just give us another candidate Edgar will just cause you to lose

  29. Well, it is now an open secret that John Sangwa has fallen on hard times financially. Not only has his marriage of over two decades crumbled. His chicken business has gone under after he borrowed heavily and failed to pay back. Remember the temporary withdrawal of his practicing certificate? Friends talk about his lack of a proper house for himself. All these woes may help explain his rather erratic behaviour of late.

  30. Tarino Orange do not vent your anger or hate on me. I do not need to know USA politics as you understand them. But I am sure the opposition had wished convid-19 had caused havoc to ZED as it did to USA. That way, they could have earned votes. I am glad it never happened. Tarino Orange it is not me standing for elections, it is EC L .

  33. Isn’t this inciting hostility and probably violence? Ignorance about the law and the right of citizens to petition. No issues in terms of the politics – just threatening opponents and the obsession ‘to win’. Its now or never to kick these thugs and their useless leader off the political scene and the helm of government.

  35. How does the PF treat its political opponents? We all know It kills them! So this Kamba cadre is issuing death threats to Sangwa who is just exercising his democratic right? Such uncivilised barbarians should be caged

  37. So why is this PF Cadre holding a mic belonging to ZNBC which is a public equipment? Where is IBA? If it was the opposition holding a Muvi TV or Diamond TV mic, IBA would have issued or summoned them. This is abuse of public equipment.
