Mongu Mayor and Councilor Summoned Over Assault of Ward Councilor.


The Mongu Police have summoned the Mayor of Mongu Town, Nyambe Mayumbana, and Kambule Ward Councilor, Jimmy Kaumba, in connection with the alleged assault of Jack Mwangala, the Ward Councilor for Imwiko. The incident occurred on February 17, 2023, at BECCA Night Club in Mongu District of Western Province.

According to eyewitnesses, Councilor Mwangala was involved in an argument with Mayumbana and Kaumba at the drinking spree. It is alleged that the duo became angry with Mwangala for “gulping beer like a fish fighting for his dear life” and proceeded to assault him. The victim is claiming that he was later hit by a motor vehicle registration number M1, which was driven by the Mongu Town Mayor.

Councilor Mwangala sustained a swollen nose and a fractured right leg and was rushed to Lewanika General Hospital, where he is currently receiving medical attention. The incident has caused public outrage, with many calling for the Mayor and Councilor to be held accountable for their actions.

The Mongu Police have confirmed that they have summoned the Mayor and Councilor for questioning in connection with the assault. Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Danny Mwale, has stated that the police are taking the matter seriously and will ensure that justice is served.

The assault of Councilor Mwangala has raised concerns about the conduct of elected officials and the need for them to act responsibly in public. It is hoped that this incident will serve as a wake-up call to all elected officials and remind them of their responsibility to uphold the law and act with integrity.

The police investigation is ongoing, and further updates will be provided as the case develops.


  1. Upnd strong hold. What you expect from these ignorant thugs. That is why someone is effing this man’s wlfe and he has no clue. Ask you wlfe about bornwell

  2. This is what happens when you have politicians that are running the country with no clue of governing. Our systems are so bad so much that no one is responsible for anything. The recent social media video showing a teacher and a head teacher being absent from school for extentded periods of time on drnking sprees is a typical example. A minister of education announces a 69% pass rate without any comment on this level of passing and the effect it has on national develompemnt except the explanation of the gender numbers. It shows you why we are still a third world bunch. We have people that occupy positions and are not ashamed of anything disappointing related to their position. We hear some people even take chairs from their home to seat on in Govt offices_shame.

  3. Charity lears manners from home. These ar not mayors or councilors. But bare alcoholism’s being paid allowances for doin nothing. But drinking and going after prostitutes and spreading aids to youn g, poor innocent girls

  4. But ba Anthony Bwanya sure you’rea shameless piss demon, all day and night all that’s on your mind is ukunya! No wonder you stink just like your friend Kainyokolile Zulu.

  5. Why summon? Arrest. Does the law operate differently for different classes of citizens? If this was Tayali he would be in jail by now
