U.S. Robber Oliver Bwalya Is My Son – KBF

Lawyer and politician Kelvin Fube Bwalya has identified the Zambian national in aggravated robbery case in the USA as his son after the story started making rounds on social media.

“Good morning Team,” he started. “My son Oliver Bwalya, a student in the USA, has been arrested in some robbery case and other charges.
Information coming out of the USA is currently scanty.”

“As a parent, I love my son. As a lawyer I want to believe he is innocent until proven guilty. Yet, as a believer in the Rule Of Law, I will allow the due process of law to take its full course. I will keep my son in prayers,” read his statement in part.

The 19 year old Zambian based in Ohio USA is charged with armed robbery, home invasion, assault, killing/torturing an animal, larceny and assault using a dangerous weapon.

In a group of 4, Oliver Bwalya broke into a house, attacked a single lady, shot dead her dog and went away with an undisclosed amount of cash. His bail condition has been set at $80,000.

      Please do not say “useless son”. This can happen to anyone of us. The are now tough especially with the prevalence of drugs for the young ones. Once they are hooked, they can do anything. Let us pass our condolences to the victims of the robbery but also explore how we can stop such things in future

      KBF’s admission that the young man on whom he is spending tons and tons of dollars on his education in the US.As a parent myself,I suspect the young man got involved with wrong company of colleagues who due to peer pressure got him into this mess.This is a trying moment for the KBF family and I can only wish them God’s strength as they see their son being tried in courts away from home.

    Thieving is just in their DNA. Kbf also told the nation how he woke up a judge in the middle of the night to do something crooked. Cant be trusted with leadership roles

    Please do not call a human being useless you are not a judge besides your child could even do something worse. Verbal abuse is damaging and is just not for a civilised era. Best to help Oliver by arranging cancelling, prayers, programmes to help him reform and reach his potential. At that age peer presure gets hold of the weaker ones.

      Aren’t you even ashamed to make such a comment. Do you think any parent would want to raise their child to be a criminal. When will as ZAMBIAS embrace each other in times of despair. Everything you want to politicize. That could have been your son too. Be sensitive to the things you say

    He does not qualify to be a leader. He has clearly failed to inculcate good morals in his children. He is bringing us drug addicts, killers, thieves. He must not be allowed to continue practicing law as he is tolerant to ill-behaviour .

    He has failed to lead his own home, what about a country?

      In a number of cases parents do their best parts to instill discipline in children but still children follow their own imaginations. It is not true that the minister could not have done some something to bring up his son in the right way. There are many evil forces in our surroundings that influence children to choose to go in wrong direction.

    This is a difficult time for KBF. As parents we do our best to raise children but there are lots of intervening variables in the modern world. As men, we hv a particular attachment to our sons but they’re the ones more likely to bring disappointment to us.

    A son’s sins cannot be smeared onto his Father. The young man is an adult and makes his own decisions. He is still young and needs rehabilitation rather than venomous attacks on him and the father!

    KBF is a good person, good parent, good lawyer, outstanding citizen who a lot of us should emulate. Works hard and wants the best for his children.
    His son if true is the story is very useless an outcast of society. Letdown his father in the most unimaginable manner

    This makes a sad reading but what I have observed is that majority of parents especially those who have a lot of money want to send their children abroad at a very sensitive age for higher education. Some have good intentions others are doing it as a way of showing off. Those kids go before their personality get a strong foundation. Then what you are witnessing here is what follows. They come back as a reck, addicts, prostitutes, bane it in summary lost souls .

    KBF MUST BE PARTLY BLAMED. I SAW HIS CHILDREN IN HIS BOOK, AND THAT’S WHAT YOU EXPECT FROM CHILDREN BROUGHT UP THAT WAY.

    There is a lot more to this story- there was a group of these guys travelling around burglarizing apartments and doing other home invasions. Expect multiple charges in several states. https://www.wlfi.com/content/news/Elkhart-suspect-facing-charges-in-West-Lafayette-burglaries-569365491.html

    Until proven guilty. the young man was just with the wrong people at a wrong time wrong place. Leave the young man and his family alone. You all have kids. AND Jeff. the young man is not with these guys to add him there, you too don’t know the whole story. AND Judge you are more useless than KBF’s son. Kids makes mistakes and the grow up. Leave the family in peace the are around having a hard time. May god give them peace. Praying for your family
