Three PF cadres picked for vandalising Zesco cables, but Lusambo wants them freed

Police in Ndola have apprehended three notorious PF cadres for vandalising Zesco cables and are currently detained at Masala police station but information reaching the Zambian Watchdog from police is that MMD die hard coordinator and now Copperbelt minister Bowman Lusambo wants the culprits freed.

Copperbelt Divisional Criminal Investigations Officers – DCIO James Masiye confirmed the development to the media and named the cadres as Kennedy Simpito, 43 of house number 7 Mackenzie township; Abraham Banda, 35 and Edward Mbewe, 29 of house numbers 6117 and 1125 respectively in Masala township.

The three were found digging cables around midnight by the anti robbery squad after a tip off from the public about the trio’s activities as they are known to be selling the same cables to scrap metal dealers.

Banda and Mbewe are well known PF cadres who were even publicly seen campaigning for Bowman Lusambo in the 2016 elections and were also part of the cadres that were involved in a scuffle with police earlier this year. Lusambo is said to have called the officer in charge at Masala police station but he was told that the matter was being handled by the division command.

When scheming to declare the state of emergency, some electricity pylons were damaged in Ndola and Lusambo came out strongly accusing members of the opposition as being behind the sabotage. He threatened that police will deal with the saboteurs, statements that have been echoed by Edgar Lungu and home affairs minister Stephen Kampyongo who in parliament added that people would be found dead under Zesco pylons.

    The real issue is that Zesco cables have got value in the market place. These thieves are making money by stealing and selling these Cables.To arrest these Cable Thieves u dont need to declare a SOE. U need to enforce law and order. Lusambo is an accomplice in these Cable Theft and should be arrested.

  • These are the people #SOE wants&Mr Herny Kapata mwali patapata sana So ichintu chintu umwene these are the same people you were looking for.You must do something not #ukupatapatafye.

  • They are the ones doing crazy things

  • How come they’re not corpses!!!!

  • 1. Lord we give thanks and praise you in every situation, knowing that you are fixing situations hidden to us and schemes that we have no idea of , fighting battles that seem impossible in the natural, working in the background when things look hopeless.
    2.Our eyes are on you, we trust you to restore everything broken and in a mess in our nation for your Glory. We rejoice in you at all times, in every affliction that our nation is going through for we know that there is power in praise, walls crumble, mountains melt in your presence, stronghods are broken,captives are set free, chains are loosed, demons flee, situations bow down when we choose to magnify you above all.
    3.We rejoice in you during our weaknesses, when we are limited in our human ability you show yourself strong as we rejoice in you. We thank you that Zambia will be a beacon and model once again, and it will even be better. This too shall pass.
