It’s Sad that Mr. Hichilema is governing the country against his own words-Kambwili

Share

Patriotic Front (PF) senior member Chishimba Kambwili has told off President Hakainde Hichilema that his days in office are numbered if he continues to mistreat Zambians.

Mr. Kambwili also warned Mr. Hichilema that the brutal arrests and detentions he is inflicting on others will be done on him also when he leaves office.

Mr. Kambwili said it is sad that Mr. Hichilema is governing the country against his own words.

The former National Democratic Congress (NDC) president and Information and Broadcasting Minister said President Hichilema promised people arrested on non-serious cases will be given bond but to the contrary people are now spending five to seven days in police cells which is very unfortunate.

“My dear brother if you continue like this your days in office are numbered. I am advising you without malice make sure these issues stop, these issues must come to an end,” Mr. Kambwili said.

“If any Zambian is arrested treat them in accordance to the law,” he said.

Mr Kambwili said “The same way you are treating people you will also be treated the same,’

Detaining someone for a longer period without any charge, he said, is extra-judicial punishment which is unacceptable.

“We had a lot of hope in your statement because you were arrested 15 times and I was arrested 12 times, but you want people to go through what you went through, my brother that is not leadership,” Mr. Kambwili said.

Mr.Kambwili however urged Mr. Hichilema to immediately direct police at Kasama police to take a PF sympathizer known as Chama American to a court or grant him a police bond. He said it is unfortunate that the police have refused to grant him a police bond since Friday last week. Chama is arrested for the assault case which he allegedly committed in 2015. He said there is too much breach of rule of law under the UPND regime.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kambwili appealed to Mr. Hichilema to stand by his words to allow freedom of speech to flourish in Zambia.
He said what is currently happening is totally different from his promise.

“One of your MPs has reported Mr. Nakachinda for expressing his views. Let’s change Zambia for the better instead of what we are seeing, ” Mr. Kambwili said.

    What nakachinda alleged was a serous matter that needs investigating……….

    We can’t have a president summoning judges to influence a very important case of the MPs who were kicked out of Parliament……..

    The country needs to know when and which judges the president was influencencing ………….

    This kind of behaviour by the sitting president can not be allowed……

  4. Thieves were at a party in the past regime. If you are not guilty of anything, then why are you worried? These maneuvers are meant to distract attention and seek public sympathy. HH, pedal on

  5. This country is just cursed. People will promise hills and mountains just to get political power. Once it is given to them, they become blind,deaf and dumb. In short this govt is a govt of liars.

  6. Kambwili, tone down for once. So you expect your party members to break the law with impunity just because HH said something in terms of the law does not mean you construe this as a weakness on his part and you want to take advantage of that? No sir. We are are talking laws here, besides this regime is miles away when it comes to abiding by the laws.

  7. This government has lost direction it can not fulfil the promises, all it is doing is just bringing confusion in the country is this the change they were crying for, I thought it was a bout fixing what was broken, the economy, is arresting Nakachinda helping to fix the economy!

  8. Well articulated brother Kambwili. Our country is even more divided under the new dark government than PF.

    It is divided because new dark government president has only targeted bembas, Dr Chilufya, B Lusambo, Kampyongo, Chama, Chitotela and Malanji to mention a few. We the bembas are not happy at all.

  9. I agree with moron Kambwili. I am equally disappointed. Problem is HH appointing a rejected citizen to command police.
    Then that Chama America was brutalized by cadres, he should be in hospital not jail.
    UPND cadres are the ones who should be in jail.

  10. You are done dear brother.
    You chose the wrong boat. HH is not going anywhere at least for the next 10 years. PF really messed things up for them selves…No one wants to deal with the PF thugs anymore. I know I don’t.

  12. People who were coned are complaining. We told you that Hh is a very smart conman. He did not mean an iota of what he was promising. His pocket is secured that is it. Those of you who are easily persuaded by plain clothes conmen are in for it. There you have it he has his police who he called ” moron s” dancing to his tune. He would like any sane person to believe that he is not calling his appointed leuftenants to give them instructions. That is very shallow thinking. When he accused lungu day and night today he wants everyone to believe that he is a saint. That level of naivity is alarming.

  13. Mr. Kambwili said.: “My dear brother if you continue like this your days in office are numbered. I am advising you without malice make sure these issues stop, these issues must come to an end,”

    CUT THE CRAP, Mr. Kambwili, NOT EVEN A CHICKEN CAN BELIEVE AND TRUST YOUR WORDS. YOU HAVE SHOWN POOR JUDGEMENT, THAT DISQUALIFIES YOU AS A LEADER. YOU WANT TO BE PRESIDENT, SO WHY WOULDNT YOU CAPITALIZE ON THAT AS AN OPPORTUNITY, THAN YOU PRETENDING TO GIVE ADVISE. ATI giving advise…..uko…you a dribbled the aliance, so just shut..the ..F…. Up.

  14. People now are spending 3 or 7 days in detention during PF it was months without appearing in court Mucheleka spent over one month Mwaliteta over 1 year in detention

  15. Police are not refusing to release accused persons on police bond. The only problem is bond conditions are not being made that’s why people are spending days in jail.

  16. State Presidents are well informed on critical events by Govt. agents (OP, Police, etc.). A hot-line exists between the President and Minister of Home Affairs. Hence, selective arrests of former Ministers Chama, Malanji & Kampyongo, including the PS Malama, had blessings of Home Affairs Minister. Such punitive actions are well orchestrated. We pray that Zambia must NEVER slide back into a barbaric & cruel era of Chiluba’s regime that tortured KK and several prominent Zambians.

  17. I for one foresee chaos ahead of us.
    I saw this coming just like I am fore telling. Just how could you trust bally the virus? Has he ever been serious in his life? You shared the political bed with him. I am just surprised that you’re surprised.
    He should be loving it or he is confused with it. I mean power.
    Remember, dictators are made, not born. Gosh! Dictatator dictate. Truth is rough.
    GOD BLESS THAT Beautiful land and its people.

  18. I want to believe there are bloggers here who are just paid or are just there to influence an opinion. So readers be careful not be swayed by these false statements above in support of Kambwili. Nakachinda raised issues which he must substantiate or face jail. This is not just an issue of someone exercising his freedom of speech while accusing the head of state over something which never happened. Let him mention the judges involved, where they met the president and at what time. These mentioned judges must also acknowledge that indeed they met the president. Already some shallow minds are believing this is true. And please you PF failed politicians learn to speak the truth for once. Not everyday speaking rubbish. Kudos to honorable Antony Mumba, he is able to speak the truth and…
