Trouble seems to follow Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili wherever he goes with the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) slapping him with three traffic offences. Kambwili who has retained Keith Mweemba as his lawyer has pleaded not guilty to three counts of traffic offences. His status symbol Jaguar registration number AOB 2949 has landed him in hot soup after it was impounded along Dedani Kimathi Road in Lusaka. According to RTSA, Kambwili’s Jaguar bore a false registration mark ‘CK 900’ in contravention of traffic rules. The vehicle was being driven by a Mr Chileshe who had no driving license contrary to road traffic rules act number 11 of 2002 of the laws of Zambia. Further the Roan lawmaker is accused of failure to display a certificate of insurance on the Jaguar. The matter has been scheduled for September 21 for commencement of trial. Kambwili’s world has shrunk since he was expelled from the ruling PF with law enforcement agencies on his neck while ruling party supporters have been bashing him politically.

President Edgar Lungu has received kudos for prevailing over the 7000 UNZA students that could have missed out of writing examinations this month. Humphrey Mwenya, an ex-Zanasu president, says President Lungu’s gesture deserves support more so that he is a product of the institution and understands its challenges. “The directive by President Edgar Lungu to allow 7234 affected UNZA students sit for this August examinations is a true reflection of his commitment and passion towards uplifting the livelihoods of majority youths and common Zambian families,” Mwenya says. “The Republican President understands the real challenges of a common family and meeting the high university tuition fees is a gradual process that would never be met instantaneously. “There is need for more consented efforts by all stakeholders to make access to university education attainable with no hindrances. “Poverty reduction through education is the only possible way to reduce the gap between the poor and the rich. “It is gratifying that President Edgar Lungu continues to recognise the importance of university education to a common humble family striving to provide education to the children,” he says. Mwenya says the greatest gift a humble family can receive from its government is access to tertiary education. “I wish to commend the President for timely intervention to the cries of more than 7000 affected Unza students scheduled to commence there exams this August 2017,” said Mwenya.
