After getting into a pact with the Litunga and some corrupt Indunas, President Edgar Lungu has now gone into another pact with privately owned Mungu FM Radio Station to be his mouth piece in Barotseland.
In early March, Conman Mukeya Liwena, the former Lyambai Station Manager now Mungu FM Radio Director had a meeting with Lungu at state house and was paid K150,000 tax payers’ money after he convinced Lungu that his radio is more popular to convice the people of Barotseland to fall in love with Lungu and his PF government. However, the only truthful thing Mukeya told Lungu was that his vice president Inonge Wina isn’t a factor in the area.
On 15th March, 2016 from around 20:30hrs to 21:30 Lungu was on Mungu FM addressing the people of Barotseland with Mukeya as the interviewer.
During the program, Lungu mocked the people of Barotseland that there are a lot of projects taking place in Mungu such as Mungu – Kalabo Road which he us scheduled to commission.
The interview was however not welcomed by senior intelligence officers who wondered why the whole head of state could use a sham of a radio station like Mungu FM.
Meanwhile, all the Watchdog sources at State house have disclosed that Lungu is so scared to face the Barotseland people especially after the ten year imprisonment Afumba Mombotwa and two other activists and the continued arrests of others.
“He cannot easily walk into Barotseland hence his desperate moves of bribing the Litunga and now conmen like Liwena,” said one of the sources.
Liwena, in the picture below owes workers at his radio station unpaid months salaries and he is now trying to escape punishment by aligning himself to Lungu just like many other crooks are doing.
