Share

Patriotic Front Acting President, Hon. Given Lubinda has called on members of the party and general public to offer solidarity to the former first lady Esther Lungu as she appears at the Drug Enforcement Commission.

Speaking at his residence when he received a petition from women who demanded that the harrasment against the former First Lady, Mrs Esther Lungu and the incarceration without trial of former PF Deputy Secretary General, Mumbi Phiri must come to an end, Mr Lubinda urged supporters to on Tuesday, walk to the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) offices on Government road, Ridgeway area.

He said President Hakainde Hichilema was digging pits for his political opponents by his vengeful actions but he will fall in them.

Mr. Lubinda also condemned the failure by the State to include Mumbi on the High Court Cause List since May 2022.

He said it was clear that the State had no case against Mumbi Phiri but was using detention as a form of punishment.

He said the speedy at which Mumbi Phiri was arrested should also apply to try her case.

He urged President Hichilema to concentrate on building the economy instead of focusing on destroying those he perceived to be his political enemies.

And Acting Secretary General, Hon. Nixon Chilangwa MP said the party members should remain strong, and united and should not be intimidated by the tactics of harassment being perpetrated by the New Dawn Administration.

  8. Let this be a lesson to future leaders……

    You get power drunk and accused to stealing , you……….

    Will be be investigated……….

    Period.

    Don’t steal and investigations will set you free…………

    • WHY YOU ASK
      CAUSE IF THE TOP CRUMBLES SO THE UNDERLINGS WILL FOLLOW
      THOSE IN PF ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT THE PARTY OR THE COUNTRY WITH THE OLD STILL CLINGING TO POWER
      ITS ABOUT THEIR POCKETS AND GREED FOR POWER
      WATCH THE FIREWORKS WHEN THEIR PRESIDENT IS TO BE CHOSEN

    • @Tikki – I am asking why Lubinda thinks the public should show up for Mama Lungu? The entitlement is baffling.

  9. You didn’t ask for support or solidarity when Hakainda Hichilema was put in jail FIFTEEN TIMES on trumped up charges. Hypocrite!

  10. Zayelo, as a member of the defrauded public, I will offer Solidarity to DEC, not ifyo ulelanda mune.
    Go for Convention now.

  11. Ala mukwai ine ndefwayakofye explanation on why politicians make the fastest money in the land. Why dont engineers. lawyers accountants architects and doctors make money this fast after setting up businesses that they take loooooong to establish. That on its own shows you politics is a corrupt trade. We dont see the positive performance from politicians but they are always getting richer. There must be an Anti Corruption unit just for politics.

  13. Amwa peeeeellliiiing not to cause confusion at DEC. She is just being called for mere questioning on the source of wealth to build those flats and also the method used to aquire that land since it is,part of state lodge. If she has all the documents then she will be free to go about her business.

  14. Why are you scared fir Esther to explain her source of wealth? DEC please do a fine job, PF are extremely jittery

  15. We will turn up in numbers with placards demanding the removal of Edgar Lungu’s immunity. Where did he take the billions he PRINTED on top of the gassing genocide.
    You have been pushing your luck too far, it’s about time the public demanded JUSTICE.

  16. Ba Lubinda,
    Please don’t take Zambians for granted. ECL/PF and Co plundered national coffers not UPND nor PF coffers.

    You have no shame. Indeed there is no honour amongst thieves
