Police invade TV station in pursuit of opposition leader

Policemen from Police Headquarters and Luanshya Monday afternoon stormed Prime Television in pursuit of the footage in which Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili addressed Avic workers at his residence on November 25, 2018.
The Two Luanshya Detectives in the names of Austin Hanjuwa and Joseph Mukoma who were in possession of a search warrant were accompanied by Detective Kangwa from Police Headquarters.
This is a case in which Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo promised to deal with Mr Kambwili in a heated recording following the Roan Member of Parliament’s move to address protesting AVIC workers over poor conditions of service.


This is the same case which saw Mr Kambwili being arrested from Force Headquarters’ Deputy Inspector General, Bonnie Kapeso’s office on Thursday, November 29, 2018 and immediately bundled in a White Landcruise and taken to Luanshya where he spent a night in police cells before being bailed out the following day.
He was charged with unlawful Assembly.
But Prime Television Managing Director Gerald Shawa wonders why the officers should start following up a matter which happened in November last year and the person in question was already arrested and charged.
Mr Shawa has since refered the officers to the Independent Broadcasting Authority-IBA.

    ZAMBIA IS A POLICE STATE. EVEN WHEN YOU COUGH THE POLICE WILL ARREST YOU AS A PERCEIVED ENEMY OF THE RULING PARTY. THEY WILL RELEASE YOU WITH WARN AND CAUTION STATEMENT WHEN THEY REALIZE THAT ALL YOU DID WAS TO COUGH. IF YOU COMPLAIN OF HUNGER, YOU WILL GO IN FOR 5 YEARS FOR TARNISHING THE NAME OF THE PARTY. WHY ARREST HUNGRY EMPLOYEES WHO ARE COMPLAINING DUE TO POOR CONDITIONS OF SERVICE, AN INJUSTICE INFLICTED BY THEIR EMPLOYER, A PRIVATE COMPANY?

    Exiled former Minister of Youth Patrick Zhuwawo has warned President Emmerson Mnangagwa that ZANU PF legislators are plotting to impeach him.
    Writing in his Zhuwawo Brief on Monday Zhuwawo said, “You already know that most of the ZANU PF legislatures are itching to impeach you as you correctly observed on Wednesday 30 May 2018. The mass action is spurring them on to save the nation and their constituents from further suffering and to also protect their jobs.”
    Zhuwawo said Mnangagwa has failed to uphold the constitution and those are the grounds that will be used to impeach him.
    “Grounds for your impeachment in terms of Section 97(1) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe for (a) serious misconduct , (b) failure to obey, uphold and defend the constitution ,and (c) willful violation of the constitution are being prepared.”
    Zhuwawo further urged Mnangagwa to follow the example of former President Robert Mugabe and accept his fate to save the lives of Zimbabweans.
    a leaf from President Mugabe who chose to save lives by accepting your treachery in November 2017.The nation need to move forward with dialogue to institute necessary reforms and restore legitimacy as the basis for resolving the economic crisis.”
    Last year there were reports that Vice President Constantino Dominic Nyikadzino Chiwenga is plotting with ZANU PF officials and members of parliament to impeach President Emmerson Mnangagwa soon after elections.
    During the harmonized elections campaign President Mnangagwa warned ZANU PF members for plotting to impeach him and told them that he has all the information of their plots.
    Zhuwawo is in exile after fleeing the bloody the coup that ended Robert Mugabe’s 37 years of rule.
