Pilato Returns and Arrested by Police

Musician Chama Fumba popularly known as Pilato has ended his four month self-imposed exile and walked straight into an arrest by police at the airport.

Pilato arrived around 15:30 hours and was immediately arrested by plain clothed police officers who whisked him away.

He was welcomed at the airport by political commentator and rights activist Laura Miti before law enforcement officers arrested him.

The duo with two others are in court for their alleged illegal assembly over their protest on the $42 million fire tenders.

Pilato fled the country in January alleging that his life was in danger on account of having received death threats.

      Laura receiving him at the airport !! Are they related? I see it as a planned show and I am going to spend a whole week hearing about Miti and group yapping about this arrest.

    That song of his was devicive and promoting hate. His sponsors could not sustain his upkeep from his hiding place.Now its time to exculpate himself.
    We advise musicians to sing songs that unite our people .

    People like Pilato sacrifice their own freedom just to show off to the public that they can criticize the government without being prosecuted. This time he is arrested alone n the people he was try show are free and are busy laughing at him for his stupidity.

    REAL men. I salute you Pilato. Sad that Zambians still believe that leaders are only to be celebrated unconditionally and not questioned.

    No checks and balances….43 Million dollars for crap metal. Our population is almost 16 million, we all would be been 2.1 million richer as a nation….the entire Zambia population…! I cry for my beloved nation. Children of a lesser God as PLO puts it.
