Despite promising to quit ‘politics’ if his partly lost the Katuba parliamentary by-election, political comedian and Joker Cosmo Mumba has not announced his ‘retirement’.
Cosmo’s party go the least votes in the by-election but Cosmo himself got his forehead smashed in the process.
His candidate Shakespeare Mwakamui a very old man and hopefully normal got 23 votes.
During the campaigns, Cosmo ended up being beaten by the so -called unknown assailants. He was quick to point a finger at UPND supporters and rallied support from another lead comedian (ifyabukaya) Mwansa Kapeya who condemned UPND.
In response the UPND laughed off the accusation saying what would they gain from wasting their energy on a person like Cosmo Mumba.
But UPND revealed that actually Cosmo was found committing adultery with one of the women who sell foodstuffs along the road. It was the husband of his lover that beat him.
Cosmo himself refused to let the police handle the matter. This is because he knows that the truth would come out. He told the Post newspaper that he would not involve the police in searching for the people that beat him in Katuba.
“Balitunyela. I was attacked by some UPND cadres. I have dispatched the security and intelligence wing of the party to apprehend the suspect because we know him,” said Mumba.
NOTE: ‘We know him’.
Mumba said he was having a meal at a restaurant in Katuba when he was attacked.
Asked where his bodyguards where at the time he was attacked, Mumba said he had dispatched earlier to some other place and was alone at the time.
He said he was saved by his gun after he fired warning shots in the air.
The truth is that he was found in the hut of the same woman alone having sex with her.
