Share

Police have charged and arrested Chishimba Kambwili aged 54 of Woodlands area in Lusaka for the offence of Unlawful Assembly contrary to section 74 read together with section 75 of the Penal Code Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.

He has been jointly charged with Charles Kakula who is already in Police custody facing the same offence.

It is alleged that the two whilst acting together with other unknown persons did Unlawfully assemble causing other persons to reasonably fear for the breach of public peace.

This occurred on January 26, 2023 between 08:00 hours and 12:00 hours in Lusaka.

They are detained in Police custody awaiting court appearance.

This is according to Deputy Police Public Relations Officer Danny Mwale.

Mr. Kambwili presented himself before Police at the Police Headquarters this morning following a summon he was served with.

This follows a protest by youth activist, Charles Kakula who marched to Kambwili’s residence to express anger against high cost of living, high cost of fuel and rising tribalism in the country.

Kakula has since been detained since Monday last week.

On Saturday, Police stormed Kambwili’s home in Woodlands despite being informed by his lawyers that he was out of town until Monday 6th February 2023.

Kambwili reported to Police Service Headquarters 10:00 Hrs.

  1. No Zambian president has arrested more opposition members than HH. In just three years! He always invents a charge to detain them even when he gets rid of things like defamation of the president. What an actor! HH His Hollywoodness

    • This idea of punishing political opponents before they even appear in court is typical of cheap Zambian politicians like HH, Lungu, Mwanawasa, Chiluba. We are a spoilt banana republic

  3. If these cases don’t get to court then it’s police investigations and the more they don’t get to court the more the general populace distrust in the police

  4. Dear Mr Kambwili,
    At a recent cabinet meeting, the minister of health, Mrs Sylvia Masebo observed that your weight has dangerously progressed into obesity and this could affect your relationship with her hospitals. She therefore suggested Kajoba detains you for a few weeks so you can avoid fatty foods. I hope you will appreciate our government’s concern over your health. Thank you

  5. Another waste of taxpayers money…they have failed to convict a even a single case of corruption and now all they can do is chase winds….and tomorrow Kambwili will be out

  6. BMW is now afraid of CK’s shadow, shame on you sir! Kambwili has not committed any offence to warrant his arrest. The charges leveled against him are baseless and have no legs to stand on. On tribalism refer to a detailed article done by Dr Fred M’membe where he narrated the lopsided appointments, then on high cost of living, Who doesn’t know that from the time NYUDONI govt took over commodity prices have double in some cases tripled? FIMBA UPOKE has boomeranged in your face!! NIPANO TULI!!!

  7. Kakula arrested since Monday last week? Whatever happened to the 48 hours? What’s difficult about investigating, compiling evidence and charge within 3 hours and allow the accused to prepare for court? This extra judicial punishment is not escaping our eyes.
    HH is failing the country slowly but surely. How does Pilato feel right now? He was always arrested for such offences and even fled to SA. I would like to pick his brain right now.

  8. Greetings. Question, what is going on in Zambia Motherland? God provide us your wisdom & knowledge, ultimately use it adequately among ourselves.
    Injustice, Justice or Simply Hating a sister o brother? Reconciliation & forgiveness takes God fearing human beings.

  9. This is very sad. Back to the dark days? This Kambwili chap is just a noisy maker, why even waste Police man power on him?

  10. Well, this alpha baboon from Ituri forest blew Vuvuzela too much during the PF tenure. He remains the most tribally toxic creature in Zambia alongside Nkandu Lunyokolile. These ZairIAns really though that they and they along owned this country. You will see, you vomit tribally bigoted faeces you will land yourself in court and you will be denied bail.

  11. What’s wrong with us Zambians!, Mr Kambwili organised an illegal march of his youths to his house expressing the cost of living, Mr kambwili has been at the centre of hate speech – tribal speech pronouncements to restrict to few cases. If we are a nations of laws police have the right to enforce the law. Offenders of laws and those whose wealth can not be accounted for need to be arrested and face the law in courts of law. So, pipe down Zambians, watch and chill.

    • Mwaliteta can organize protests and nothing will be done against him. You edeots used to march to the police station each time Kambwili was arrested in PF time. The best thing for you is to do the same for him.

  12. Actually they are supposed to storm Kaizar Zulu residence and disarm jimmy force. He is gun trotter and a danger to the society.

  13. Let’s get rid of all Politicians in Government and replace them with Managers…starting from the President and you will see Zambia become like modern day Rwanda…..PLANT MORE TREES

  14. What a disappointment this HH guy is… at this rate, he will end up being worse than d!ctat0r Lungu. Really bizzare that there no one soul who will progressively take this failed project called Zambia to a civilized society level. They are all same recycled tyrants. They need to stop believing in b@rbaric black juju and stop fearing their own shadows.
    I mean after all the suffering of HH at the hands of his predecessors, you would think he would try to rule a bit different for the better. Unbelievable!
