Police Launch Manhunt For M’membe, Wife Spends Night In Cells

Fred M’membe’s wife Mutinta has spent a night in police cells after she was picked up by police following a search at their Nangwenya road house.

And the Lusaka Magistrate Court has issued a warrant of arrest for M’membe over the tabulation of property of the liquidation facing Post Newspapers.

Police went to M’membe’s house with a search warrant that his wife tore apart infuriating the police who picked her up and detained her at Lusaka Central Police.

The police however went ahead and searched M’membe’s house.

Meanwhile, a manhunt for M’membe has been launched following problems over the properties that the liquidator has been having.

M’membe is accused of concealing property and also posing as a Post Newspapers agent and also prevention of handing over of books to the liquidator.

M’membe’s warrant of arrest is dated February 14, 2017.

The Post Newspapers was shut down last year following a long standing tax debt that the paper disputed.

Some former employees of the publication have filed a notice of winding up in the Lusaka High Court with judge Sunday Nkonde appointing Lewis Mosho as the provisional liquidator.

      Wowowowo…….When someone dies thêse fools always say, “may his/her soul rest in peace”. But when are we going to leave in peace?
      Thêse pfools are busy persecuting people who reveal the truth. These pfools have completely failed to do their job and are commanding police to be arresting and harrasing inocent citizens.
      These pfools are really fools. Let M’membe and his wife enjoy the freedom of speach, you pfools.

    “Whatever goes up must surely comedown”. This man thought he was untouchable, but it his time to dance to the tune. He thought he would control whoever become President of this country.

      Fred is very adept at dancing with the “wolves”. He’s danced with UNIP, MMD and now PF spending nights in prison over the years. He went underground (fugitive) with Edith Nawakwi and Dipak Patel over the “Chiluba is a thief” saga, a battle he ultimately won. When this episode (which will be bruising) is over, only the side that has been, is and will remain truthful and honest for the greater good of the zambian people shall be victorious.

    Fred M’membe has been the Alfa and the omega in his own world.He has been pompous and without restraining himself in his so called journalism.Even the favourable coverage he rendered to Late President was somehow conditional.Aumve mwala Tax ni Tax .At I chifukwa kuli press freedom then he should not be made to be accountable for Tax evasion.

    Forgiveness is the centre of Christianity. Let us not push someone until we see him in a coffin. I am not supporting his wrongs but what I am saying is forgive his wrongs. And you my brother Mmembe humble yourself before you lose your life.

    Fred M’membe is a criminal, so is anyone else who does not want to pay tax by hiding behind freedom of expression. That Post newspaper, if it was in the UK it would have shut itself down. Legal suits would have rained on it making it impossible for it to operate. He defamed everybody left, right and centre, apart from avoiding paying tax. It is yourself and every other citizen who suffer when corporation avoid paying tax. Let the law take its course.

    Do unto others what you would want others to do unto you! M’membe had pleasure in seeing others die and the mangwam was heartless! His main preoccupation was to swim in the realm of power. For me, it’s time he reflected on his evil deeds.
