Dark Secrets

THE dirty secrets must be exposed. For more than 13 years this country has been under siege by a secretive but highly vicious cartel that has wielded media and state prosecution power. The lethal combination has led to serious abuses of state power. Under a campaign of calumny, deceit and outright fraud disguised as a […]

Shameful conduct

IT is totally unZambian to treat a dead body in the manner that Grayzer Mutapa’s body was handled yesterday. We hope Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani will remonstrate with officers responsible just as we expect UPND President Hakainde Hichilema will equally admonish his cadres from provocative conduct which could easily get out of hand […]

Disgraceful complicity

Fighting the cartel is not for the faint hearted. It is an arduous and bruising undertaking that requires principled men and women with courage, determination and indeed selflessness, because the cartel will use every indecency and subterfuge in their vain effort to retain their power and privilege. We feel for lawyers Lewis Mosho and Keith […]

Political violence

  THE political card which is being played over the death of Grazier Matapa of Lusaka’s Mtendere East is not adding value to efforts to bring the killers to account for their evil act. Those who killed Mr Matapa are criminals whether they are affiliated to any political party in Zambia or not. There is […]

Subversion

There is no doubt that President Edgar Lungu’s Government is in trouble with the cartel leaking confidential documents and the earlier the Patriotic Front realises this, the better.

Mutembo must go

IT is absolutely untenable for Mutembo Nchito to continue as Director of Public Prosecutions for this country. As a matter of urgency we hope that an acting DPP can be appointed under Article 57 of the Constitution while the fate of the incumbent is decided. This  is vital to  bring sanity, stability and confidence to […]

Nolle prosequi

THE antics of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito in the Lusaka magistrate’s court last Friday need explaining because left to ordinary interpretation will set a bad precedent among constitutional and public office holders when they are faced with similar challenges. Last Friday, Mr Nchito entered a nolle prosequi in respect of himself in […]

Maize meal politics

  THE recent Government decision to reduce the price of mealie meal has been received with mixed reaction, this is understandable. The responses have ranged from the downright dismissive to the Millers Association which has now called on the Government to subsidize maize in order to maintain low maize meal prices, and herein lies the […]

Egregious liars

Fred M’membe and Mutembo Nchito embarked on the pervasion of Zambia’s criminal justice system from the moment they succeeded in hounding out the late Director of Public Prosecutions Mukelabai Mukelabai. Since then and for the last 13 years they have called the shots and lorded it over political leaders, who cowered in fear of negative […]

PF cadres

PATRIOTIC Front cadres have no right to lock up offices of public service workers, whatever the administrative offence. They equally do not have the right to interfere in the operation of private entities. The public and private workers have their own reporting structures which have inbuilt systems when it comes to matters of discipline. If […]
