PF police grow cold feet on arresting ‘Dorcas’ woman over chakolwa statement


The PF police has withdrawn the summon it issued to the Nampundwe based woman for allegedly insulting Edgar Lungu after she was shown on Prime TV lamenting that the country needs sober leaders and not drunkards.
She was scheduled to be arrested at Westwood police this morning but the police grew cold feet and withdrew the summon after a team of lawyers representing the woman showed up at the police station.
The legal team is however still pursuing the matter and has promised to inform the nation and public in due course.
The Police was ordered to arrest and detain the woman because she said the country does not need a chakolwa (drunkard) for a president.
At the time she expressed her opinion on the qualities of a president, the woman was wearing a blue dress similar to those worn by SDA Dorcas women and did not mention any particular president but the PF and their president took offense. They wanted to charge her with the abused charge of defamation of the president.
Edgar Lungu is a well known chakolwa that is why he thinks the woman was referring to him.

      Kikikikikikiki. Mwape you are the one who is supposed to be arrested because the woman did not mention anyone’s name and you people wants Zambia to believe that she meant someone you know. Tell us please who is CHAKOLWA. Unless she mentioed someone’s name then I apologize but if she din’t then you must be cheap politicians and enemies of democracy, freedom of expression and opinion. Tell us the name of your President who is Chakolwa please we want to knw because many of us don’t know who is Chakolwa and the woman did not mention her which is very unfortunate for you and for us.

    One Larry Maluma composed a hit “Chakolwa” of a drunkards escapades within the lyrics a line “Waona manje wayamba kulila!” Now the PF chose Lungu whom they sold to their strong base as a worthy leader for both the party and country knowing very well behind the curtains the characteristics he possesses! Now with all the experiences being witnessed against anyone trying to expose what was hidden to the citizenry all that is happening among those supporting and defending the indefensible (police et al) through actions and persecution for exercising freedom of speech is (spicing up Larry’s lyrics), “Mwaona manje, mwayamba kulila!” By the way Jean Kapata in a way has confirms the Head of State as a drunkard for coming out the way she did at the ‘Dorcas’ woman without exercising tact!
