Power FM Withdraws Case against PF Cadres

Kabwe-based Power FM has withdrawn the case against eight Patriotic Front cadres who were arrested for storming their studio, disrupting  a live programme that featured opposition National Democratic Congress leader Chishimba Kambwili.

The eight accused persons appeared before the Kabwe Magistrate Court for plea yesterday morning but Station Manager, David Mutumwenu, told the Court that the media house had decided to withdraw the case.

Mutumwenu explained that the decision to discontinue the case was arrived at after realising the huge number of people involved and the repercussions thereof, if they are jailed.

Police in Chipata had also arrested PF cadres who threatened journalists at Radio Maria but the case was withdrawn by the radio station before it could even get to court.

        The power of the khaki envelope, no patriotic and scene person would stand on the way to ensuring that these thugs reform. Next you will be crying for ICC when they squeeze your balls.

    Who is supposed to withdraw a criminal case? Who took the cases to court, is it not the police on behalf of the state? It’s the criminals versus the people of Zambia not just the radio stations. Let the state prosecute or enter a Nolle.

    But why should a withdrawal by the complainant raise unnecessary BP? Mind you we are on Earth and forgiving each other is most Paramount unless you are an alien. Every situation I believe on earth gets to be understood from a certain angle. More over the complainant has given a reason for the withdrawal. It’s just my take on the same

    I urge the cadres to once again storm the station, destroy their property and disrupt their programme whenever they invite any opposition member to come. After all nothing will happen to you as they will just withdraw the case.

    I wish those cadres did not threaten kambwili but instead the station manager himself this is clearly indicates that the manager was actually behind the seen.
