Freed Pilato Celebrates

Musician Chama Fumba, popularly known as Pilato has finally been released on bail after having paid a K30, 000 bail requirement and securing two working sureties.

Political commentator MacDonald Chipenzi wrote on his wall in the aftermath of Pilato’s release.


Today, my colleague, Nicholas Phiri of Zitukule, and Myself managed to sign as sureties for Chama Fumba aka Pilato who has been in Court cells since last week after his arrest on return from South Africa.

We were sternly warned by the Magistrate Mwaka Mukaile of the consequences of our actions but assured her that Pilato will always be in court whenever needed.

We thank the Magistrate for her humane consideration to an extent that Pilato has now reunited with his family after months of being away.

Thanks also go to Laura Miti and Lewis Mwape who quickly organised us together to ensure that all surety documentations are processed and made available to Court and were at court since morning.

Legal Counsel from Keith Mweemba Legal Practitioners for the dedication to have Pilato released on Bail and also the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) staff who quickly approved our papers for Pilato’s bail conditions.

The media practitioners who made sure they waited until Pilato was finally out of the Court cells, to you all, we remain indebted.

Now the battle shifts to President Fresher Siwale of the New Labour Party whose bail conditions remain onerous. Let us all unite and ensure our dear President also regains his freedom.

Aluta Continua.

    Lelo court authorities bawama mailo ati bali compromised!!!

    • Benny

      Mmmm! K30,000 wowww it seems as a little money but this is not an easily money 2 organise

    • Hammer

      But he didn’t explain why he came back! What about those he claims were threatening his life ? Are they out of the picture ? How does he know that he is safe now? Did he know his agressors?

  2. Augprina

    He is just there to give checks and balances for this crooked government. Thank u very much for releasing him on bail and let him already enjoy with his family we are all Zambians. Pilato should also remember that leaders need to be respected as every leadership that exists whether useless or good is appointed by the almighty although Satan might also intervine

    • Pamusebo

      Good that you know very well that Satan is on duty 24/7. Some leaders are not God given but picked by the devil through his works.

    • Wantanshi

      The almighty Jehovah God is not involved in appointing politicians to rule this world. Don’t you read the bible? The world is owned and controlled by the devil. Do you remember what the Devil told Jesus Christ, that if Jesus could kneel down and worship the devil, the devil would give him all the kingdoms of the world, because these kingdoms had been delivered to the Devil. Do you think the almighty God, who is all loving would appoint a thief to govern you? Oh no! lungu is a direct gift to Zambians from Satan the devil. Hard to swallow but nonetheless the truth.

    All the way to freedom ……Pilato

  4. Ignorant

    Augprina am impressed that today you have acknoledged that leaders must be respected, emutima uyo!

    • Augprina

      Boi Ignorant it’s only that u don’t know what I stand for. I don’t praise or support someone for the sake of impressing that somebody. All we need to do my dear is pray that Zambia one day might have a very good leader who will try by all means to give the people of Zambia what they need regardless which tribe, colour and sex one might have. I will never be a supporter of upnd if hh does not mean well to the Zambian people neither will I support ecl or any other polititician if they do not mean well to the Zambian people. Lets u and I pray that Zambia might one day have a leader whom all of us shall be proud of which is very easy to happen as long as we join hands together, thanks!

      • Ignorant

        I totally agree with u Augprina, if we were all had to stand up for a common cause not looking at sex, colour, tribe & other vices which distruct us from seeing what is good, that will ge the first step to create a better zambia today & tommorrow.way to go boi

    • Tom London

      Hebk my dear brother , pilato was not insulting anyone , but he was merely pointing out the short comings of a corrupt system of governance . This young musician is a genius and must be supported as he provides checks and balances on one hand and brings out real issues to the Zambian people . He is a very courageous musician .
      Iam happy he has come home to justify his blockbuster Koswe mu mpoto wearing a brown straight suit and a tie with the front teeth ready to bite . in fact these teeth have already done a lot of damage to the economy . open up your eyes my friend .

    • Evans

      He was not insulting anyone

  12. Hebk


  13. Trevor Pambwe

    Pilato welcome my guy

  14. Pamusebo

    Pilato never insulted anybody. The late PK chishala song(common man), Petersen’s Anyantule, Impi’s Bantalamisoka and many more guys remind Our leaders of their corrupt hands, the suffering of a poor Zambians. The guilty are always afraid. The same police officers you are using today to arrest and detaine innocent people are the officers we shall use to arrest you and detaine you for your corrupt practices.

  15. Patrick Mumba

    Pilato……awee wavuta iweee

  26. Steven Britain

    Umuchishi usuma bwana pilato let’s respect one another regardless of political affiliation.we have got only one country called Zambia.

  27. Nzelu niweka

    We thank God for your release

  28. Shaka

    We have to respect each other, not because of status but as humans. Do unto others the way you would want them do unto you. Majority Zambians are living in abject poverty and the leadership are busy amassing wealth. Mulungu aza yanka.

  45. Hatwiko

    Bwana Pilato home is home.if South Africa was roses fr you,why did you come back. Jst have respect fr your leaders othwise yo family may jst lose you fr nothing.Remember tht evry political leader hs staunch followers who may injure you fr defaming their leader.So jst take it easy boi your family needs you and indeed we need you.we dont want you to be forgotten history leaving your family suffering.prison te fintu.you may think you are a star by denouncing the leadership. You will suffer alone and your family.i tell you the ones encouraging you to continue ehat you are doing will not be there for you let alone your mother whom you keep on letting to trek to prisons to bring you food.i believe she has better things to do than sitting at prison gates to give you smthing to eat.you are jst punishing her ma BP plus plus.Wht did you achieve fr your family during your four months stay in hiding?take it easy mwana zambia is vry peaceful only you ran away why?in the months u hv bn away you wd hv raised ka something fr your family.may be pa ka plot up to window level by now.Filekefye fyalakwipaisha boyi leaving your family in endless pain.the pipo encouraging you wl jst forget aboutyou and yo family…Mwana,your family needs you jst like all us Zambians need you too.You lose nothing by respecting the pipo in high office.

  48. Treason

    Welcome Pilato,these Hipocrites Have Shown Their Stupidity By Allowing You Go On Bail, but Time Is Coming When They Will Pay Back What They Have Stolen.

  49. nephrone

    We are thankful that our brother has been set to freedom now.my advise to him,he should not sing songs by bfs and he should beware that fans are the one who brings trouble when they support and being a musician should not care about fans who support on wrong behavior. Sing to advice people not insult, that’s a very big mistake
