Detained Election rigging rogue  Chavula appeals to Lungu

The family of Samuel Chavula, the IT specialist who helped president Edgar Lungu rig the last Presidential elections has appealed to the latter to help secure his release from Kamwala Remand Prison. Chavula is incarcerated at Kamwala remand for some offenses, among them obtaining pecuniary advantage from his landlord, the Watchdog understands.

Chavula was part of the PF rigging machinery under the command of Lusaka lawyer Kelvin Fube Bwalya (KBF) who has also since been dumped by president in preference for MMD officials such as Vincent Mwale, Dora Siliya, Bowman Lusambo and Nakachinda.

Sources close to Chavula say that he regrets having helped Lungu rig the 2016 elections which he now says were clearly won by the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema.

Chavula had earlier approached KBF for help but the lawyer also declined as he has distanced himself from past illegalities of the PF in his attempt to position himself unblemished in his quest to become a possible successor to President Lungu in the PF and ultimately and remotely as Republican President.

Fellow inmates of Chavula spoken to at the prison described him as a sorry sight, suicidal and seemingly having a mental breakdown.

During the last general elections, Samuel Chavula was caught in the server room at the Mulungushi tallying centre complete with access cards that were traced as having been provided by Electoral Commission of Zambia Director Priscilla Isaacs who has since resigned under unknown circumstances.

Chavula was arrested and detained at Lusaka Central Police but mysteriously released believed under the heavy hand of Edgar Lungu. It is that same heavy hand that his family is appealing to, to once more intervene and have him set free.

    Politics is simply a game of chess. In chess some pieces such ponies are expendable. Chavula, you were simply a pony in a game of chess. Welcome to the real world. There is always a sucker born each minute.

    RB used to say that he wants to be President of all Zambian. He ended up, in my opinion, to the President of his children. I think that this one is the President of criminals.

    He will definitely be free soon after ECL reads this story .
    ECL is the law himself . The court judges are just masquerades . Judicial decisions are made elsewhere in criminal dens such the state house , chrisma hotel , wayaya restaurant and on casinos and bars ladden with Jameson .

    Their is one simple rule that people forget and that is we shall all one day suffer consequences of our actions even here on earth. So just wait and see. All those responsible for messing Zambians in the 2016 elections will start to suffer soon.
