    There is no case for Jay Jay he is innocent…..Jay Jay is PF and as such NO law can be applied against him coz even ECL can not allow that to happen…….who says our PF cadres can be arrested for just beating up a ka police??????
    We are in charge of all the institutions,we can do whatever our party deems necessary but the opposition must never do what we do cost us we are above the law.

    Chris and Jay Jay they are brothers now its very surprising to hear Chris calling Jay Jay at notorious is it because you want pretend to the Zambian people that you are not involved in what your foolish wako ni wako did to fool us???????

    As in the other case nothing will happen to him. They will purposely make such a weak case that the judge will have no choice but to aquit him.

    @Tikambepo you are a tribal bigot. Comment on the issue. By the way wako no wako is not tribalism. Tribalism not seeing any good in someone simply because he is not your tribe. roads are built right to your doorstep and all you can say is “are we going to eat roads ” simply because it’s not HH who has done it. That now is tribalism

    Assaulting a Police offer does not require a lot interns of acquiring evidence. Its just a medical report form signed by a competent doctor followed by witnesses who shall identify the suspect(s) inflicting an injury on the victim.If its a bad after perusal,it can’t reach that far.Am anticipating a conviction in this case.
