My Arrest In DRC Was Brutal – Nevers

Kitwe ~ Wed, 16 Dec 2020

By Chris Phiri

MMD president Nevers Mumba has said he was brutally apprehended and accused of five treason-related charges by the Democratic Republic of Congo authorities.

He has disclosed that he was arrested by the DRC soldiers who were armed with machine guns, despite earlier refusing reports about his arrest in the neighbouring country.

“I would like to make it clear that my arrest was tough and brutal. It was clear I was headed for tough times because the charges were treason related but I would like to thank Government for the intervention,” Dr Mumba said in Kitwe on Tuesday, according to Times of Zambia.

He regretted being in the DRC during a period he described as decisive.

      First of all, you need to tell the nation what the h3ll you were doing in the DRC. As opposition leader in another country, you will always be looked at and considered a SECURITY RISK in other countries. Especially in neighboring countries with a tenuous security history with Zambia. This should serve as a warning to all you Zambian opposition leaders who think you can just show up unannounced in some of these neighboring countries and get away with it like you do in South Africa. I am sure even in SA security services are always watching what you do in their country….this is normal INTELLIGENCE STUFF that all countries engage (Zambia included.) Next time plan your visits so that security services of those countries are aware of your presence in their country…..YOU LEAD SIZABLE OPPOSITION PARTIES IN ZAMBIA, SO YOU ARE NO LONGER JUST ORDINARY FOLKS WHO CAN TRAVEL INCOGNITO IN SOMEONE’S COUNTRY….they know who you are through their missions in Zambia.

    Dr Nevers Mumba, consider yourself lucky. The problem I have seen is that all you opposition leaders you are power hungry. Join hands together, You, HH, Kalaba and Mbwili come together and make an in shable force and you will kick out PF, not that way even under fives wants to become presidents, shame. or you just go back to the pulpits.

    Nevers Mumba should be investigated. What did he go to do in DRC? I hope it was not to consult on how to form a rebel movement.

    Realizing how scandals are made is amazing,

    Realizing how scandals are made is amazing, did anyone know your journey or not?; Why did some reports happen to mention where political parties find or get funds, why is this joke to some people. Sometimes a scandal can be created whereby you recognize your rescue from your enemies especially that fake recognition is needed at this time. Nevers Mumba is not a mare person. He must be surprised why he wasn’t arrested just at entery.

    Better to live a life of a president in your father’s kingdom than in other kingdom.

    People shouldn’t take an advantage of DRC being a difficult country otherwise that mentioned brutality come somewhere.

    A challenge, a planned move no doubt. Think high not low otherwise tomorrow it will be you.

    A challenge, a planned move no doubt. Think high not low otherwise tomorrow it will be you. We know now that this word treason will go round to an extent beyond limit.

  23. Cosmas Moonga

    ZAIRE. Is no go area for people who think of democracy as a means of stepping on other peoples toes. Stay home and continue ctiticising the government even if they are doing fine. Osapeleka mulomo kwabene.
