Video: Muvi TV Coverage of Kampasa Killings

On June 14, 2013, two  protesters were shot dead by officers of the Zambia National Service (ZNS) who had been sent to an illegal settlement near Lusaka’s international airport.  The incident occurred in the Kampasa area of land, which is owned in part by Patriotic Front Minister of Tourism Sylvia Masebo.  Residents of the area claim that they were unlawfully displaced from their homes resulting from a poorly understood land transaction.  During earlier confrontations between the government and the protesters this past January, President Michael Sata threatened that the protesters would be removed by force  if they did not vacate the premises.

The following clip was posted from Muvi TV’s coverage of the killings.

    Most of our leaders have amassed prime land through office much of it prime and undeveloped. The poor have been pushed to marginal areas where it is difficult to eke out a living. It’s high time a land audit was carried out to determine how much land our leaders own which they do not even declare when filing for political office. Now that tears and innocent blood have been spilled and swallowed by the soil I pity the so called owners who are brutally laying claim to this land for their hands have been soiled with the same blood eternally. May the departed in this cruel manner have their souls received by the ever loving Almighty Creator to rest in peace.

    What a shame that people are being killed for their own properties.. Why? The most important thing is that Pres. Sata is a big thug himself therefore; no matter what others are doing no one can stop them. We mourn to the loved one who died and pray for the injured one for strength and life. May God give U the strength and lift U up from all weaknesses. God will punish Sata and his thug’s followers, I promise, when Sata dies the nation will celebrate. We know that he is a very sick man & has only few days remaining until that bladder burst. We don’t celebrate death but in this case its worth it.
