The Patriotic Front regime is planning to order police to arrest satirical singer and social activist Chama Fumba, fondly known as Pilato for his new number one hit “Koswe Mumpoto”.
The Watchdog is reliably informed that the PF has already lined up cadres to go and make statements to police, either tomorrow or Friday.
In his new song, Pilato condemns corruption and theft by the PF regime officials whom he compares to rats.
In ‘Koswe Mumpoto’ (rat in a pot), the prosaic performer and vocalist, addresses alleged theft, irresponsibility and corruption allegedly being perpetrated by government leaders.
The song takes a dig at the theft in government saying the ‘Koswe’ has been stealing, thinking Zambians would not question him.
“Koswe inchito yakwe kwiba tabomba. Kubwendo bwakwa King Cobra kwalingila ba Koswe, apa inchito yabo Kwiba (A rat’s job is stealing and the Cobra’s hole has been invaded by rats whose job is stealing),” Pilato says in his song.
“King Cobra” was the nickname of president and PF founder Michael Sata.
“Apa kubako careful naba Koswe, twalafwa bonse nga tatwa Kose. Nabengila na mufipatala, ukufuma kumisebo amatala; bena monse kano balyemo. Ukufwaisha sana fi cheese nabaya nomba nakuma Chinese. Bushe kweni ni mbeba iyi, mukusamwa yasuma imbwili (We should be careful with these rats, we shall die if we are not strong. They have now gone in hospitals just after leaving roads. They want kickbacks in everything and in search of ‘cheese’. They are now dealing with the Chinese; is this a bush mouse or rat? In its gloating, it has beaten a leopard,” says part of the song.
