Sugulite Scandal; why the president might want to intervene!

Share

By Prince Bill M. Kaping’a Political/Social Analyst

There’s a video clip which is trending particularly on PF aligned social media platforms whereby an individual who is identified as Mwense Council Chairman, Stephen Chikota, and another an unidentified person seem to create a captivating scene in police custody.

The video can be said to be quite agonizing.,… disheartening, heart wrenching as the men are confidently and openly making disturbing remarks about a certain ethnic group let alone a provincial minister duly appointed by the president.

“You guys are idiots…….Cowards!” they can be heard screaming. “How come the Tongas and Lozis who are equally suspects in this matter have been released?”

“You are taking advantage of Bembas!” another voice adds. “We are not fools. You are enjoying peace because of Bembas.”

“Where’s Chikundika, the provincial minister?” The other voice continues. “He knows about this deal, how come he hasn’t been arrested? What about Mulele, the Tonga police commissioner who has quickly been transferred, why isn’t she in police custody?”

Whichever way we may choose to look at this, it doesn’t smell well! We may decide to ignore it at our own peril. These are some of the issues that are causing us serious problems in this country. It may be incumbent upon the president to immediately grab the Buffalo by the horns and address the matter, fairly and squarely, pronto!

First and foremost, it would be important for us to remember that whenever we steal, we don’t do so on behalf of our tribes. We do so on our own behalf as the president would love to remind us! It would therefore be totally wrong to drag in the entire tribe in our own wrong doing simply because we belong to that particular tribe.

For instance, one of the voices is heard complaining that the Tongas and Lozis who were equally involved in the scandal have been let off the hook without any explanation while others remain in police custody. Is this correct? Who are those Tongas and Lozis that have been released? How come the others are still in custody?

What about police commissioner Mulele, how come she has been quietly transferred to another province? According to our investigations, whenever the police are moving from one jurisdiction to another, they ought to seek express permission from the provincial command. Was she aware of thie movement of minerals? Did she give authorisation? From whom did she seek permission, the provincial minister?

This now brings us to the provincial minister himself. In the video, the aggrieved individuals are openly complaining that the provincial minister is equally involved. What does the minister have to say about this? Was he involved? Did the police commissioner alert him about such a movement? What about the intelligence?

Truth be told, this issue has now become very embarrassing and yet so polarizing at worst as some individuals have seemingly gone out of the way to claim that characters from certain tribes are now being sacrificed on the alter of other tribes……ukufilila munsenga!

Is it true that police commissioner Mulele is being shielded from prosecution simply because she is Tonga?

The president might have no choice but to immediately intervene in the matter in order to enhance peace and harmony in the nation.

If indeed the provincial minister has been fingered for any impropriety, he must be suspended from official duties to allow for fair investigations. Equally, if Mulele was involved in any wrong doing, she must be hauled wherever she may be and made to answer for any wrong doings!

Stephen Chikota is a very senior member of UPND. That he can easily dismiss other tribes expose himself as cowards and blubber that Bemba speaking people have been used by Tongas to get to power is very disturbing.

When this country successfully managed to break the chains of captivity from our colonial masters, we can not simply say it was one tribe that did all the work. All the tribes played one role or another. While others were carrying out clandestine operations such as planting bombs, others were agitating openly while some were equally mobilizing funds to send a delegation to Lancaster House to negotiate for our Independence.

Similarly, not a single tribe can claim to have single handedly used it’s power or mighty to extract PF from authority in order for us to start enjoying the peace as Chikota might want us to believe.

Mr. President Sir, may you kindly get to the bottom of this matter and help us find answers.

Until next time……

  1. Like it or not, this is real. Start with the Mwense Council chairmanship… how did this person become chairman? After the murder of the PF member council chairperson…so far nobody has been arrested for this. Secondly the minister some months had his Chingola house attacked at night by unknown people… so far nobody has been arrested.
    Thirdly the disturbing utterances by the incarcerated individuals should not be brushed aside as mere rantings…we people from Luapula are very embracing, loving and welcoming… those who have been there can support this.

    • You people from Luapula are not welcoming or loving. You are the most PF of all provinces- Secondly, let it pointed out that the people of Southern Province were the first people to revolt against the English. When the time to negotiate independence came, they are the ones who sold 10, 000 cows to raise money the Bemba man, Kaunda, to go the UK, since UNIP had no money. Then during the elections of 1963, we Southerners enabled UNIP to form government when we gave UNIP our 10% of the vote so that they could get to 55%. Lastly, when the criminal Chiluba was arrested in Choma by Kaunda, it was the Southerners who rioted to get the pygmy release. So Chikota should shut up

    • #Magoye. E kutumpa uko. Does belonging to a party define the nature of a tribe? If so then you Tongas are the worst because 99% of you are Upnd. Other provinces have at least one Upnd MP, Mayor etc but not so in Tonga Land

  3. Intervene what Ekse, saht! Was Bally there when they were stealing? They must learn what “you are on your own truly” means, ndiye iyi. When you were stealing you were “stealing for the future” NOT for tribe. Not even imprisoned yet, just 6 days Kuma cells and you start crying like the b.tches that you are. Reveal in court your conspiracies under oath we see kaili. Saht Ekse Ku Tumpa Uko Ekse.Intervene what Ekse, saht! Was Bally there when they were stealing?

    Even in courts , evidence presented by theives is easy written off………..

    • You picked hooligans to stand on your ticket out of desperation… how was his predecessor killed, and why was Chilundika’s Chingola house attacked at night?

    • #Spaka out of desperation your party has appointed Kelvin Sampa as part of the presidential campaign team. You what Kelvin has done. What makes you different from PF?

    • Dejavu

      UPND are seen to be fighting corruption and theft…………

      Theives are everywhere……they just need to be wedded out……

      that is what we are doing while leading

    • #Spaka but Kelvin has been appearing in court for stealing someone’s millions of Kwacha by false pretenses. So how do you clean your house when you are at the same time bringing in dirt?
