State wants lecturer Sishuwa fired Zed

STATE HOUSE ASKS UNZA TO FIRE SISHUWA

Last week, State House issued a directive to have Sishuwa Sishuwa fired from the University of Zambia because of the presidential petition he is sponsoring. UNZA Vice Chancellor then asked the UNZA legal counsel to provide a reason for firing Sishuwa but the legal counsel wrote a letter advising that the historian had done nothing wrong to be fired.

However, according to a source in the VC’s office, last evening, State House still called UNZA reiterating and insisting that Sishuwa must be fired for any reason or else the Vice Chancellor won’t get his contract renewed.

So the Vice Chancellor may still go ahead and illegally dismiss Sishuwa Sishuwa this week.

Sad days.

Meanwhile the court case in which Dr Sishuwa Sishuwa and Chapter One Foundation have challenged the constitutionality of the nomination of Edgar Chagwa Lungu as a candidate for election to the office of President will be heard in the Constitutional Court on 8th (starting at 09:00) and 9th June 2021.

    I think it was personal between late Siamwiza and Sishuwa. He didn’t give him a recommendation not because he didn’t qualify for post-graduate studies. The fact that he has since excelled means Siamwiza was wrong.

    Lungu is behaving like Israel’s Netanyahu. Anyway, just because there are Vinyau va Vimbuza kumawa Lungu wants be to a Chi,buza chamu Zambia, soon he will be calling himself Chanyambuzahu. As for Sishuwa, you are wasting his time, he is Sebituane’s descendant, he is South African and Cyril will never deport him to a “foreign” country.

    Lungu is doing what he has been doing since 2016. He has fired thousands of Lozis “in the national interest”. So Sishuwa’s dismissal is completely to be expected from this tribal hater called Lungu. Don’t talk to me about those leeches, Lubinda and Wina, who have no loyalty to where they are supposed to come from. PF is a hegemonic tribal party that is out to eliminate Lozis, Tongas and people from NWP.

      It is extremely important that Judge Chulu and Mr Nshindano take action on the Petauke case, where a villager was found with 70 voters’ cards and NRCs, and the people behind the scam have been mensioned. It’s on record that ECZ refused an audit of voters’ register. Can they justify their claim now in view of the Petauke case? And where is Mr Kanganja? He’s been arresting innocent members of the opposition. Here is a case of criminality with a smoking gun evidence. If he does not take action on this one, it will only confirm that he’s a PF Cadre and anything else he says will be meaningless.

    @Insider: do you even know what punching above one’s weight means? If you thought it is an insult, no it is not. It is actually a compliment. It means that Sishuwa delivers beyond expectations, that he is too good for where he is! 🤗

    This boy called Sishuwa has no respect for anybody even in UNZA. He disrespects even Professors in his department. A former head of the Department of History, Dr. Bennet Siamwiza, refused to recommend him for staff development fellowship because of his impudence and insolence. He only got appointed after his PhD following the death of his tribal cousin Dr. Siamwiza. The boy lacks interpersonal skills and punches above his weight.

      What does your comment have to do with a court case? You have to give it to Sishuwa for his tenacity and brains. The guy is bright and brave unlike some of you guys whose contribution to Zambia is churning out undergraduates who flood the streets jobless and aimlessly. This is a legal matter and your comment on the late Siamwiza refusing to recommend Sishuwa for staff development fellowship is totally misplaced and a non-issue.
