One Dead As Police Teargas, Brutalize Kanyama Residents

Zambia Police yesterday brutally beat hundreds of Kanyama residents who attempted to turn up for the UPND rally in Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia. One person died in the fracas.

Sources say 300 people were detained and loaded in police trucks to various police stations.

The heavily armed State Police sealed off Twashuka grounds while detaining anyone loitering about within the premises.

Meanwhile, some residents and UPND supporters continued making their way to the rally venue vowing that their leaders Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba must address the nation especially on the crippled economy and presidential petition.

    Our constitution supports freedom of assembly and association. if these freedoms are suppressed then those in power should be held accountable. We shouldn’t use police to undermine our freedoms.I was in South Africa but such type tendencies can’t be condoned because that country allows freedom of assembly both for the opposition and ruling party.The voices of the people shouldn’t be crashed because in Zambia there a lot of issues that should be taken into consideration like corruption, poverty,police brutality,unemployment, lack of drugs and equipment. Our president Edgar chagwa lungu made a promise to the people of Zambia to fire corrupt Ministers and civil servants who are undermining development in Zambia. There are more Scandals in the p.f government like Z.R.A K140 million scandal, Expired A.R.Vs, Mukula tree saga and Maize gate scandal.We as citizens must not be hypnotized by the powers that be.Lets not support criminality and corruption as norm in our Country by allowing M.M.D failed and corrupt elites to breed in the p.f party.Otherwise p.f will be extinguished by 2021.

      As a people we have the option, of course, of surrounding our conscience with a sort of cocoon of complacency, passively “going along,” shielding our inner feelings from whatever might disturb them. When issues arise, rather than take a stand we can in effect say, “I’ll just sit this one out; others may be affected—even hurt—but I am not.” Others will go to an extent of questioning, why you part took in a poll you know loaded into the “rigging mill”. Some spend their whole life in a morally ‘sitting’ posture. But, when all is said and done, and when life finally draws near its close, it would seem that the one who can say, “At least I stood for something,” must feel greater satisfaction than the one who rarely stood for anything. Sometimes we may wonder if people of deep conviction have become a vanishing race, something we read about in the past but see little of in the present. Most of us find it fairly easy to act in good conscience so long as the things at stake are minor. The more that is involved, the higher the cost, the harder it becomes to resolve questions of conscience, to make a moral judgment and accept its consequences. When the cost is very great we find ourselves at a moral crossroads situation, facing a genuine crisis in our lives.
      For instance a disputed poll, if not resolved in an amicable way, what impact does it have on voter and future polls? What guarantee do we have that polls will ever be fare and eventually reflect the will of THE PEOPLE? In future why should I wake up around 0400 to go and cast my vote or listen to the so called campaigns, when it has been decide well before the polling day? If those who rig polls, where passionate about democracy, development and progressing the lives of ordinary citizens would they be forgiven for using underhand methods if they eventually delivered beyond expectation?

      HH being a freemasonist and a satanist enjoys drinking human blood especially that of children.

    • double m

      Gibs, freedom is not absolute.HH and his gangsters want to put this country on fire so that they can take advantage of the ensuing confusion to boost their ill gotten businesses.

    Was UPND denied a Police Pe rmit before the meeting or they just gathered without permission ? People must gather after being permited – If they first obtained a permit then denied after, they have the right to sue the state ….

    The Police are not happy as well.When they get such a chance the vent their frustration on anyone.Its unfortunate that the PF don’t go there.When it come to that the Police will shoot even at PF and claim it was accidental. It is foolish to believe that all Police Officers support PF.

      Too bad to the innocent people who was affected with teargas around the area.
      Zambian’s let’s avoid something that will lead us to problems, especially finding your self in agony just for a person who is enjoying with his family. Yet you lose your family. Be wise we live once take care and look after your family they need you most.

  37. Sir Jeff Geoffrey

    The Kanyama residents had serious intentions. They wanted HH and GBM to explain how the economy has been crippled and how far the issue of the presidential petition has gone. To be honest, these two would have had nothing to talk about as they would not have had answers. They only wanted to divert the attention of the people. They knew that by confusing matters, they would get away. They were told about the rally and chose to deliberately to ignore which they they could not be granted as they don’t recognise the commander in chief of the armed forces and through cowardice chose to sacrifice the residents. Zambians must open up your eyes. Muzayamba kufela pa mbolo ya shamwali!
