Kateka says Rise Cases of Defamation Against the Presidency show Zambians are Unhappy, but Nevers Mumba differs

Headlines Kateka says Rise Cases of Defamation Against the Presidency show Zambians...

The New Heritage Party has said that the rising number of cases of members of the public either insulting or defaming the President could be that Zambians are unhappy with his leadership and have no other option but to insult the presidency.

Party Leader Chishala Kateka said that the best way of dealing with any problem is to identify the root cause of that problem.

Ms. Kateka has condemned the beating of two youths who allegedly insulted the President by military personnel in a video that has gone viral, saying the due process of the law must be followed and the youths must be handed over to undergo the due judicial process.

However, New Hope MMD President Dr Nevers Mumba has said that he is deeply disturbed by a video clip in which young children took turns to insult President Hichilema, using vulgarity that has never been heard of in the Country.

Dr Mumba said that what is more shocking to him is not the nature of insults that were uttered but the age of these children involved.

In a statement, Dr Mumba is however surprised that some political leaders rushed to the defense of these children for political expediency without caring much about their uprightness.

He said a healthy and progressive society is not anchored on having a strong economy and exquisite infrastructure but it is seen through the moral fibre of its children.

He said the nation is now waiting for the church to not only denounce the behaviour of these children but seek to find them and try to establish where such behaviour is coming from.

  1. She has a very valid point. Why else would a citizen insult a sitting president. They have not been in power for a year and people are already regretting it.

    Lusakatimes I have told you off before about using this picture of madam kateka. It is in bad taste to use a terrible picture which makes her look like a man is about to ejaculate on her face. This is unacceptable

  2. The people that are insulting voted for this government of empty promises and now frustrated with what is going on. Nevers Mumba as usual is looking for a job and will not see things as they are.

  3. Pastor Nevers, you are the one chipping in for political expediency. If you read want Sean Tembo has written, he is not supporting the insults by the young children rather condemning the actions taken by the soldiers and in the process violating the much vaunted rule of law by pungwa and yourself. Where is the rule of law here? This is what you should be speaking to, rather every time you open your mouth it’s to try to appease the ruling pungwas.

  9. Nevers Mumba always out of touch as is always is the case with these men of Gold ..learn from your former MMD friend Felix Mutati he knows which direction the winds are blowing…really laughable…the man served as a Finance Minister in Lazy Lungu’s reckless Pay Forward Party and today he is in HH7’s cabinet.

  10. Another Genetic Bemba tribalist-why dont you just join PF so we can easily identify you cos clearly you dont stand for anything as a party and infact you not going anywhere old mother. Nawakwi was more vibrant and promising but look where she ended up-A stout PF cadre. But as for you ba Kateka you are just another PF cadre in disguise, nothing ever constructive comes out of your dirty old mouth-always critising. But when your fellow Bemba was in power-you were utterly quiet -why ? cos you are jst another tribalist from the north. You ve been in politics since 2005 but why are only getting to know you now? cos no more brown envelope for you from PF anymore. even at your bank you manage you only gave loans to Bemba PF cadres. We know!

  11. But dont worry-you havent mourned the official demise of your party PF yet. Wait, one day you are coming out in the open to show your sympathy for PF. We are giving you enough rope to hang yourselves. Chilufya Tayali has already come out, Canicious Banda came out and we are still counting down……After the investigations we ll also know how much the PF was directly paying you plus the shoddy deals you were involved into. Those honghong goggles of yours will soon fall from hunger.

  12. Much as Nevers is right, he’s part of the original of this culture. Just because he didn’t like Mr Sata and Edgar Lungu, he supported those who insulted these two leaders. Let’s not forget how he hated the MMD but later became its president and destroyer

  14. Too many fake politicians in Zambian at the moment and its is disgraceful how low they will sink just to make headlines….
    How can a serious leader of a political part,especially a lady,condone and encourage young people to insult their elected leaders….Ba Chishala,you have lost it!!….and that is why your ka fake party is going nowhere….
    Please encourage citizens to show respect for leaders and urge them to debate constructively important issues such as the economy,not insults…

  15. Since opposition parties are just political commentators, mostly without members or even branch chairmen, why don’t we ask all of them to disband so that they just become like loose canon Kaizar, just running unproductive commentaries arising from a very bruised ego obtained through the August 12 drubbing. Should we allow these guys to continue masquerading as opposition leaders and yet there is not even one who looks serious like a top contender

  16. Civilized cultures in the world protect the rights of children and minors. There’s a way of punishing minors and 99% of the time they are taken to Juvenile reharb centres and not prisons. That’s why 99% most of the time they are not tried in the courts of law. They are just kids and can not be paraded in public by full ass grown soldiers in a humiliating manner. And to this failure of a pastor, what happened to forgiving 70 x 70 times?

  17. Ba Nevers nififine, kuwayawaya fye.
    Job seeking, ala bwafya. No one in their right minds would support the conduct of the children. But Zambia is a democracy with laws enshrined in our constitution.
    There are laws that deal with defamation of the president, and capital punishment is not prescribed anywhere.
    What happened to the children is actually torture and it’s deplorable.
    So if we are a country of laws, let’s apply them.
    And how do soldiers come in? Are they the new police in the new dawn?
