    HOW COME ZAMBIANS ALLOW POLICE TO ARREST CITIZENS WITHOUT ESTABLISHING PROPER AND CLEAR CASES. FOR INSTANCE SPAKS MINING. UP TO NOW WE DO NOT KNOW THE CRIMES HE COMMITTED. NOW TUKUTA CHELLAH, THEY ARE SAYING HE HAS CASES ON THE COPPERBELT. WHAT CASES ARE THESE THAT ARE NOT KNOWN.

    Innocent until proved guilty! Young persons in this country are hurting. There are no opportunities and State seems not to care. Provide opportunities for the youth, Mr. ECL.
    Could somebody provide legal assistance to Chellah, please? LAZ, Legal Aid, SCs.

    Ooh yes lock him up, he thought he could get away with cyber crime. Ameno yakwe yamuletelela. Instead of just concentrating on his camera business and wrecked marriage, he start defaming other people on social media hiding behind the click of a computer mouse. He insults Hon Siliya that she is a professional prostitute and thinks his insults on social media will go unpunished.Thats why we have ZICTA, the police and the courts to deal with undesirable and misguided characters like Tukuta who want to tarnish the good image of Zambia and its leaders. Its sad to see a young talented cameraman like Chella want to ruin his own life all for the glory of some selfish opposition party leaders who think paying Chella some few thousand dollars to lead the youth revolution and promising him heaven on earth when they get to state house by using him is the way they will actually get to state house. Characters like Chella can easily split the nation and put it on fire and congratulation to the police for netting this Chella

      Munyenge its just a matter of time back in the days we used to see checks and balances under the leadership of Late Mwanawasa.
      What’s so awestruck about your current leadership you will rot in jail starting from the head.
      Moreover if it’s not you languishing in poverty then your family members are.
      You think pf will be in power forever?

      The PF regime and its institutions have their heads stuck in their butt! They stopped their brains a long time ago.

      Please remind them that a revolution is coming very soon to remove and cage these PF butards and their drunkard leader chakolwa Lungu.

      Humiliation part of an overtly political strategy to instil fear in the public

      The three women were in tears, distraught, and seemingly faint with hunger, as they sat in filthy prison uniforms in the dock in a magistrate’s court in Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, waiting to hear if they would be granted bail.
      In a country grappling not just with coronavirus but with a string of deepening economic and political crises – including rumours and denials of a coup plot – the extraordinary and deeply controversial case of opposition activists Cecilia Chimbiri, Netsai Marova and Joana Mamombe seems to point to something grim and fundamental about Zimbabwe’s current struggles: an overwhelming loss of public trust in its key institutions.
      “We see a very jittery state that is at war with its citizens,” said Fadzayi Mahere, a spokeswoman for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), who attended the bail hearing on Monday and argued that the women’s humiliation was part of an overtly political strategy to instil fear in the public.
      The MDC activists are facing trial on charges that they lied about being abducted and sexually assaulted last month.

    Instead of arresting corrupt criminals, police are wasting time on an innocent person. Any fool would know that this arrest is politically motivated!!
