Lusaka Court Orders Emmanuel Mwamba to Surrender Passport


Emmanuel Mwamba, the Patriotic Front (PF) faction Chairperson for Information and Publicity, has been directed by the Lusaka Magistrate Court to surrender his passport. The decision came after Lusaka Resident Magistrate Trevour Kasanda revoked the bench warrant issued against Mwamba for failing to attend court proceedings while abroad.

Magistrate Kasanda justified the order by stating that relinquishing his passport would allow the court to oversee Mwamba’s international travel plans while the trial progresses. The directive was issued in the ongoing case where Mwamba faces charges of assaulting a police officer.

The alleged incident occurred on June 16, 2023, in Lusaka’s Woodlands Area, leading to Mwamba’s subsequent arrest on June 17, 2023, on charges of forgery, as per Zambian laws. Additionally, Mwamba faces three counts of publication of information, which contravene Section 54 of the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act.


  1. Attention and this is exactly what the opposition wants….Emmanuel Mwamba has been in Politics for over 30 years and till today he is just hallucinating….its about time some of these Politicians leave Politics and retire….we need fresh blood young and Energetic Politicians….all these Bandits in both PF and UPND should just disband and go into obliviation

  2. Democracy is making these Mwamba types silly. These guys need mob justice so that they know we the electorate are not impressed…

  3. This is what will be subjected to under HH’s UPND. Fake arrests on opposition and a deteriorated economy. Him being a self cerebrated economist, this is and entrancement to humanity.

  4. We find it courageous to physically or psychologically attack opposing views and opposition leaders so forceful than we do on social and economic headwinds, blame everyone but not ourselves.
    Mwamba is some seasoned guy who fills the void in news dissemination. The risk he has always been willing to take for all, whether there is a bench warrant or passport confiscation.
