PF trying to link HH to alleged coup plot

The case in which a Lusaka based man is charged with the attempted assassination of President Edgar Lungu has taken a new twist with the PF telling police to link UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to the questionable case.

Last week, police charged Mwangala Ngalande with attempting to assassinate President Edgar Lungu. But two named individuals who are alleged to have conspired with him have not been charged.

Ngalande once worked as a driver for late politician Anderson Mazoka.

When Mazoka died, Ngalande defected to the Patriotic Front (PF) to which he is still a member.

But now concerned police officers say they are under pressure to force Ngalande to implicate HH.

The PF is under pressure to slow down HH as the political temperatures heats up. The repeated worn out lies about HH being a satanist, being a child of a cattle thief, having sold the mines, having a child outside wedlock have all failed to achieve anything as the public have heard about them numerous times without any iota of proof. The only people who believe this hogwash those who make money out of it.

Ngalande appeared in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court on allegations of procuring weapons to assassinate President Edgar Lungu and some senior goverment officials.
Mwangala Nkonde Ngalande is accused of plotting to assassinate including defence chiefs, defence minister, Chief Justice Irene Mambilima, the National Assembly Speaker and deputy Speaker.

Mr. Ngalande has since been charged with one count of treason accompanied by three overt Acts.
It is alleged that between August 1, 2019 and December 1, 2019 in Lusaka jointly and whilst acting together with other persons unknown endavoured to overthrow by unlawful means the Government of the Republic of Zambia as established by the law.
And according to Overt Act 1, Ngalande between August 1 2019 and December 1, 2019 in Lusaka conspired with Simon Njobvu to procure military equipment namely AK47 Assault Riffles, pistols and rocker propelled grenades for the purpose of assassinating Edgar Chagwa Lungu the Republican President and other senior Government officials who include service chiefs, minister of defence, Davies Chama, Chief Justice Irene Mambilima and Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Patrick Matibini and his deputy Catherine Namugala
In Overt Act no 2, Ngalande on the same date is alleged to have conspired with Njobvu to source for international funding and actually obtained 1.6 million United States dollars to be utilised in the over throwing of the Government of the Republic of Zambia.

It is further alleged in Overt Act 3 that on the same date, Ngalande jointly and whilst acting together with other persons unknown recruited 10 people for military training, a militia for the purposes of overthrowing the

    The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun.

    Fredrick Chiluba did the same thing to late Dean Mungomba, Princess Nakatindi and others after the coup attempt of 1997. He still failed with his third term.

    It is just designed to deflect attention from economic mismanagement and rampant plunder but will backfire badly since people are tired of Lungu.

    Biggest Joke…No one with the right mind would even plot to remove an unpopular president headed for defeat next year owing to the suffering he has imposed on Zambian people. He needs to live a long life to see what is possible when good leadership is in place. If it is true about Mwangala Ngalande, that kind of behavior is unacceptable in Zambia – See what happened to Captain Solo. No amount of rigging this time around can change the vote in 2020 or trumped up charges on HH.

    Yaba, indeed desperation leads to all sorts of shame! Where did this assassination attempt take place? Such will just result in decampaignning those in authority and propelling the opposition. Arresting HH this time can lead to serious instability and more suffering. It can seriously cost PF dearly. PF need to be smart here not to arrest any opposition leaders. Already you can see what happened in Chingola.

      Politics are tidal!
      Authorities in Iran are struggling to contain public anger after they admitted on Saturday that the country’s military was responsible for shooting down a commercial airliner with 176 people onboard. Police used teargas to break up a second day of protests in Tehran on Sunday, with demonstrations spreading to other cities.
      Speaking at a vigil yesterday, the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, his voice sometimes breaking, said he would “pursue justice and accountability” for those killed in the disaster. At least 57 Canadians died in the crash, most of them of Iranian descent, in one of the biggest single losses of life the country has suffered in 40 years.
      “You may feel unbearably lonely, but you are not alone. Your entire country stands with you, tonight, tomorrow, and in all the years to come,” he told a crowd of 1,700 in Edmonton, Alberta, home to 13 of the victims.

    We know all those tricks. Bring a trumped up charge against someone for an assassination attempt to increase the sympathy of zambian people to a failed regime because zambians hate people who do bad to other people. That way lungu gets a sympathy vote by making him a victim of a concocted assassination attempt. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds because the man was simply opening a security company. It won’t work mudala.

    Desperate situations call for desperate measures but implicating HH will be a fundamental political mistake for PF. We know they want to win 2021 by any means possible and they have all publicly said even assassinating HH. Fili eko tuleya but Zambians are fed up & PF must be very careful with these measures as the whole world knows what’s happening here.
