Kambwili survives brutal PF police raid at his residence

Just a few days after having a meeting with PF MPs at parliament buildings, dictator Edgar Lungu last night dispatched a battalion of armed police officers and intelligence officers to go and raid the Luanshya residence of Roan MP and former information minister Chishimba Kambwili but they failed to gain entry. It is not clear as to how they failed but some of the officers have told the Watchdog that they just decided to disobey the orders to attack him. 

In the morning, there were 25 uniformed police men with 6 intelligence officers who have been trailing him ever since he arrived in the country from the UK where his family is while many others in plain clothes hovered around his residence premises. An angry Kambwili who posted the development on his facebook page said the gimmick will not intimidate him.

“I woke up this morning and found over 25 armed police officers and 6 office of the president officers right outside my gate. From last night after I arrived in Luanshya police and op have been trailing me, trailing me as far as going into Shoprite right behind me. What is this nonsense ? I am not a criminal, I am a law abiding citizen who deserves to be treated fairly. This state of emergency was not called to trail and harass Chishimba Kambwili,” he says.

The raid on Kambwili’s residence is typical and similar to the one that was executed on UPND president Hakainde Hichilema thereby leading to his trumped up treason charges and detention. Kambwili so far is viewed among PF faithful as one of the hopefuls to take over PF in 2021 and Lungu is determined to harm him.

Kambwili complained that the intimidation he has been facing from security officers who have been trailing has made him fear for his life to get into his constituency where he has not been for over two months now because the police officers can kill him or plant something to incriminate him.

“My home is private property and I am entitled to private life without police harassment, I now fear for my life because these police officers can easily kill or plant something at my home to incriminate me. I’d like to warn the police to immediately stop abusing their powers and focus on arresting arsonists and law breakers. Whoever is sending these police officers to harass me and my family should know that time is of the essence. Mind you I have not been in my constituency for over two months because of constantly being followed by OP officials, baring in mind that I am a constituency man and I make an effort to see my people every weekend, this harassment is becoming a burden on my ability to deliver my campaign promises. I am utterly appalled at the behaviour of these people, instead of them being out there chasing criminals they are following Chishimba Kambwili for reasons best known to themselves,” he says.

After being tipped about the heavy presence of armed police officers at his house, Kambwili came out and the officers scampered in all directions but he gathered courage to trail one vehicle and challenged them why they were at his house. He warned that he would not run away because he is not a coward.

“As soon as I came out of my gate the police officers began to scamper in all directions but I managed to follow one car and confronted the officers, when I asked them what crime I have committed for me to be harassed in this manner they had no answer and simply said it’s not our own doing. Whoever is behind this must know that I will not run away from my own home, I will not run away from my responsibilities because I am not a coward”, adds the former minister..

  • 2021 is going to be the waste elections in the history Zambia. PF should do their homework now. And this is going to be a walkover for Dr CK to weigh his weight in politics. I can smell a down fall of PF , if the party is going to remain in the hands of cadres like Kennedy Kamba , Kampyongo, Lusambo , The Ck team who are against Lungu’s inclusion of BASAMPENI Zambia open , are in big numbers , and are indigenous PF. ZWD has the list. You can read in between the lines that rhw PF which SATA left are against Lungu. And this is the Falling away of PF.

    A dictator is a dictator. It is dangerous to be close to a dictator because he or she does not think of what you may have done for him or her in the past. When dictators feel that one is becoming a threat, they forget the good things that you may have done in the past and go after you in a brutal way.

  • Ba PF. Forget about 2021. Just do your job of bringing unity and development to the country and we will vote you back if you do a good job. You’re just wasting yours and our time by squabbling about 2021.

  • They were not policemen but cadres. Reloaded policemen can’t scamper.

  • you reap what you sow

  • IT WAS HH, NOW IT IS KAMBWILI, ZAMBIANS CANT WE FOCUS ON DEVELOPMENT ISSUES?

  • It’s OK. He voted for SOE

  • HOW MANY POLICE DOGS DO WE HAVE AS COMPARED TO ZAMBIANS AND HOW MANY GENIUNE OFFICERS ARE THERE TO PROTECT ZAMBIANS ?DO THESE THUGS REALIZE THAT THEY ARE BRUTALISING THEIR OWN BLOOD OR ARE THEY FROM MARS? IT SEEMS SOMEONE WHO SENDS THEM IS NOW MAD OR THEY ARE FOOLISH TO BE DRIVEN LIKE IDIOTS.

  • According to the picture,I didn’t know he stays next to FBZ.

  • Your reporting n the picture n especially the headline show no collaretion.The story is not credible. Over exaggeratedThere are grey areas.

  • This is a wrong picture, this is a picture taken when there was a riot in town.You can see even FBZ there.

  • 1. This message is directed to those in PF with a genuine heart for the nation, the rational, God fearing who correctly divide the word of truth and are not men pleasers or fearful of men, those who are concerned about the legacy of the nation and their children and descendants, the brave and courageous.
    2.This message does not apply to cadres educated or not who choose not to reason, and instead choose to focus on insults and intimidations to defend anything and everything, deny the truth even though it goes against their conscience, but would rather exchange their dignity and that of the nation for a few pieces of silver and insecure positions.
    3. For how long are you going to sit back and allow Zambia to continue in a self destruct mode. For how long are you going to watch and fail to approach your leaders and hold them accountable and counsel them to uphold the good democratic standards that Zambia was known for.
    4. History is a good teacher, those that failed to do right when they had the opportunity are also affected with their children and descendants. Even those that considered themselves to be part of the system and are no longer part of the system.
    5.Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act Bonhoeffer . For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
    6. First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
    7.How do you want your party to be remembered for, as the one that destroyed the little Democracy that Zambia had started to build. Are these the plans you had when you were begging for votes during the MMD era and won the goodwill of the nation. It is time to reflect , look back and act using peaceful methods. You will not be taken seriously when you start jumping ship and start denouncing issues that you were part of or silent about, when a new Government takes over.

  • Yaba..aren’t these the guys he groomed??? Let him also feel it he became too rude loud and proud..pride comes before a fall. . I just have no sympathy for this thing no!

  • Foolish u na your group

  • BA kambwili bana shanga chimanga no kolola mpilipili .Ifintu Ni lungu umuntu nilungu every thing nama court Ni yaa lungu.so guys don’t worry 2021 is not far.

  • We need a father, a parent to run this country we need some one who can bring sanity to this nation. God help us there’s too much drama.

  • Still we can’t support this dictator

    • The real dictator is already on the throne of Zambia. Its sad that there still some people like u who re so much behind from seeing what is happening. Three quarters of us Zambians aren’t happy with this Lungu thing. We re staying with our rights stripped off including yoself.

        Hahaha try who! The chief tribalist himself? Give him a little power and you will hear what will come out of his mouth. Ask ZNBC, they will tell you.

  • The idiots in uniforms are usually PF cadres. Wait until people start to shot at these criminals then the truth will show up.
