Nkana striker Walter Bwalya also known as Heritier Binene Sabwa is a Democratic Republic of Congo national and not Zambian, fresh details from that country have emerged. According to records with the Congolese Football Federation (FECOFA), Binene played for Lubumbashi Sports before joining Forest Rangers who later on sold him to Nkana. But he was not issued with an International Transfer Certificate. “Binene went AWOL from his previous team here in Congo. No one cleared him,†FECOFA sources said. “Infact, he is registered as a Congolese with FECOFA and we have his registration as BineneSabwa. So we don’t know when he became a Zamban.†Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) super division side Lusaka Dynamos have questioned Binene’s eligibility to play in the domestic league without an ITC. However, Nkana officials and supporters have come out all guns blazing saying Binene was eligible to play in Zambia adding that he was Zambian. There have further been suggestions that top Zambian officials are trying to hard to give Binene a Zambian passport so that he eventually plays for Zambia.

The post Hichilema Should Respect Pres. Lungu, Says Dr Canisius Banda appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Former UPND deputy president Dr Canisius Banda has says opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema should respect the presidency (office) and president (Edgar Lungu). Dr. Banda says the UPND leader should have respected president Edgar Lungu because the Head of State is the president for all Zambians. “HH should have respected president Edgar Lungu because he is also president Lungu’s subject as such he has no option but to respect the head of state,” said Banda. Dr Banda says he is still wondering why opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has found it so difficult to respect president Edgar Chagwa Lungu this time. Hichilema is currently behind bars on treason related charges. Treason is non-bailable in Zambia. “I think HH must swallow the bitter pill and acknowledge that president Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the only Republican president at the moment as there can never be two sitting presidents at once. “Its just common sense, there can only be one president at a time and such a one is ptesident Edgar Chagwa Lungu,” Dr Banda said. Dr Banda has again wondered whether Hichilema can respect a common man if he can not respect the head of state. “The head of state is the most powerful, influential and senior citizen in the country who must be respected by all the Zambians. Its worrying to see people like HH not respecting the head of state,” he said. Dr Banda has further advised the UPND leader to start respecting president Edgar Chagwa Lungu for the fact that he was elected by the majority of the Zambian people to lead the nation therefore there is nothing the UPND can do to change the will of people.

A Patriotic Front social media page yesterday published an article attacking Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu after he led three church mother bodies in classifying Zambia as a dictatorship. Archbishop Mpundu held a press conference on Friday at which he also demanded the release of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema. President Edgar Lungu however responded to the call saying there was no political crisis in Zambia and those clergy speaking against his governance were paid agents. BELOW IS AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED BY THE PF MEDIA First he wrote a letter that was not a pastoral letter but he fronted it and purported it be a pastoral letter just because he is President of the Zambia Catholic Conference of Bishops(ZCCB)? The Conference of Bishops did not sit to issue such a pastoral letter. And on Friday Archbishop Mpundu gathered former Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) Executive Director, Bishop Paul Mususu, in place of EFZ Director, Dr.Pukuta Mwanza and former CCZ President and National Superintendent of the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church of Zambia, Alfred Kalembo in place of outgoing CCZ Executive Director, Suzanne Matale. For the record the trio above therefore cannot be the representatives of the church-mother bodies!! Methinks if Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu has something to say or wishes to air his view, let him say or speak without wearing the masquerades he is clutching on The post PF Attack Catholic: Telesphore Mpundu Is On A Lone Path appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Popular nightclub DJ of the Chez Nthemba fame, Suke Chile, has reportedly gone into politics in his country of birth – the Democratic Republic of Congo. Suke Chile, who has lived in Zambia for over 20 years entertaining patrons at Chez Ntemba, is among the parliamentary candidates vying for political office in the general elections expected later this year. The well known DJ who also sung a hit number Papa Chiluba praising Zambia’s third Republican president will be a candidate on the UDGBG ticket in the elections billed for December 2017. Chez Ntemba’s popularity is synonymous to Suke Chile who has served the Congolese international entertainment chain for ages. He arrived in Zambia in the early 1990s when Kayembe Kaloji arrived to open the rhumba influenced Chez Ntemba. As the night spot shifted base from Kamwala, Thornpark, Downtown and Kabulonga over the years before spreading to other cities in the country, Suke Chile has remained the main attraction on its menu.
