Given Lubinda accuse UPND Government of planning to Arrest their Candidate for Kabwata By-Election

Share

Patriotic Front (PF) acting President Given Lubinda has alleged that the United Party for National Development (UPND) has directed law enforcement agencies to arrest party Kabwata candidate Clement Tembo.

Mr. Lubinda said the UPND wants Mr. Tembo to be arrested for unknown offenses, adding that it is shocking that all this while the UPND have been quiet now that Mr. Tembo is contesting Kabwata by-elections they want him arrested.

The acting President said the former ruling party will not be intimidated by UPND maneuvers and urged the candidate not to be scared of whatever the UPND are planning to do.

“Let me advise you our candidate, do not be afraid with this moves by UPND. It will not go anywhere. They know that you are a threat in this by-election, this is why they want to intimidate you,” he said.

Mr. Lubinda, however, said even when Mr. Tembo will be arrested the party will continue campaigning until the end of campaigns on January 19, 2022.

“This happened in Lusangazi where our candidate Patrick Banda was arrested but despite that, we continued campaigning,” he said.

Mr. Lubinda went on to say that the UPND is a bunch of thieves. and that the concession they have signed with a South Africa nonprofitable NGO is total theft.

Mr. Lubinda said it is shocking that the UPND wants to do a road project of about 2200 km at a cost of US$3.7 billion, adding that this means 1 km will cost about US$1.8 million which has never happened in the history of Zambia.

“They called us names that we are thieves and Zambians believed. 1 km under PF was costing US$1 million but it will cost US$ 1.8 million. Who thieves, it’s them,” he said.

  1. The upnd are scared. They know what awaits their foreign candidate who is Zimbabwean. A vote for upnd is a vote for a foreign kabwata mp. The choice is yours

  2. It’s unfortunately if it has to come to that but I’m quiet sure Mr. Tembo must have done something especially when he was in charge of this presidential empowerment. For us that know Mr. Tembo in the banking circles he was not the right man to handle such a huge responsibility and not getting his hands dirty. Let’s wait for the charges to come and judge from there.

  5. Well if you know your candidate is a crook who is most likely to be arrested then you better have another standby candidate as plan B.

  6. Lubinda the innocent will never be afraid only the guilty. Let the young man not panic unless he was involved in illegal activities which most PF members were involved then the law should follow its course regardsless of current political situation. A someone wanting to be law maker, he must be a law abiding citizen.

  10. It’s not whether the guy has committed crime or not. It’s the timing of the alleged arrest. He should have been put in long time ago.

  11. PF who when in power failed to work and let the people of Zambia down are always complaining about something, their cry baby leaders like Lubinda, Nakachinda and Kambwili can not lead this party. If Clement Tembo went against the law at any time and evidence has just surfaced now, should they leave him on account of being a candidate. Simple lecture Sir, the law does not know that the guy is a candidate

  13. Kaizer Zulu please get real ,UPND cannot be scared of PF ,this Criminal Enterprise of a Party .Remember the Historical Weeping of 2.8 million you got at the polls .The Zambians rejected PF and that thief Lungu & the people of Kabwata will do the same again.
    PF is a Party of Abana Ba Ndoshi , you might as well disband .

  14. Nostra you are an experienced pervert. Unfortunately I stopped playing like that. I am a loyal and happily married man.i don’t need any other woman in my life.

  15. Deadly snakes strike when timing is right! There is no need to worry about arrest by the PF candidate if that which would be the reason for effecting such an arrest is as good as castles in the air! PF must be aware of the blemish that could be revealed thus probably the quick pre-emptive alert from Lubinda so as to pivot the impending arrest to political persecution! If Tembo is clean he is clean and if not it doesn’t matter at what point the law or arrest visits him! In serious countries even law makers would be made to wear handcuffs wherever they are found at the material time!

  16. A Security Institution which requires URGENT CLEASING in Zambia is the DEC. The institution is saturated with evil-minded personnel. E.g., just because FTJ Chiluba disliked the Late Ambassador Otema Musuka, the DEC tortured Mrs. Musuka by detaining her on allegations of exporting cosmetic products impregnated with drugs to South Africa. Mrs. Musuka was detained for an unbailable offence. Her case was defended by a prominent Lawyer John Sangwa (S.C.). The case was dismissed as FAKE ACUSATION in Lusaka’s Magistrate Court. Records are available in Courts Archives. Govt must CLEANSE the DEC to restore civilization in Zambia. For Zambia’s prosperity, future DEC & ACC staff must have a Law degree.
