[ISS] As Liberia gears up for the election, much debate has been generated around the successes of her administration and the delivery of promises made. During her two terms at the helm, Sirleaf has made substantial efforts to ensure sustainable peace. However, for these efforts to continue enjoying a chance of success, they need to be country-owned: not just by the national government, but also by an inclusive social compact between the government and its society.

Minister of Youth and Sport Moses Mawere says United Progressive Party president Saviour Chishimba does not strike him as someone normal. In an emotional response to Chishimba having been reported to the Anti Corruption Commission over the Higer Buses Youth Empowerment program that the UPP leader claims was corruptly handled, Mawere said that the former Kasama Central Constituency lawmaker was a ‘Chainama Case’. Mawere told journalists that Chishimba should be more worried about the Auditor General’s report that highlighted misappropriation of funds under the National Youth Development Council that the UPP leader headed before the board was dissolved. He said that he was sitting on a mountain of evidence that should shut up Chishimba if it were brought to the public. “You see when I look at the man there is some element of insanity and I think he needs to get himself examined at Chainama Mental Hospital,†he said. “I have only been at the ministry for three months and I do not even know how he imagines that within three months I had been able to do these things.†Mawere said that he would be available to the ACC should they require him to testify before them but wondered what Chishimba was gaining by dragging innocent people in his political fights. Chishimba reported Mawere and Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo among others in a detailed corruption allegation dossier over the handling of the Higer buses meant for the youth that was initiated by late President Michael Sata.

Police this morning summoned Mast Newspapers Managing Director Mutinta Mazoka M’membe. Mutinta, who is wife of liquidation threatened Post Newspapers owner Fred M’membe, appeared before the investigative officers at the Lusaka Central Police for questioning over copyright infringement allegations. Post Newspapers provisional liquidator Lewis Mosho reported Mutinta to the police over copyright infringement allegations. M’membe has re-incarnated The Post Newspapers as The Mast with his wife as Managing Director. The provisional liquidator who has spared no effort in seeing off The Post Newspapers has spread his venom to the recently found Mast Newspapers. Mosho is overseeing a ruthless liquidation process after former employees of The Post Newspapers filed a motion of winding up on account of recovering what is owed to them. The debt ridden publication was shut down last year after a disputed tax debt by way over K50 million.

PF Secretary General Davies Mwila in a moment of conscious lapse directed Patriotic Front cadres to take over bus stations in Kabwe. Mwila’s sentiments have stirred a hornet’s nest with FDD spokesperson Antonio Mwanza condemning Mwila for his actions. Mwila directed PF cadres whilst addressing them at Hindu Hall in Kabwe that they should not force him to ferry ‘Commando’ to lead the fight referring to a well known ruling party enforcer in chief. Below is Mwanza’s Statement on Mwila’s Statement: DAVIES MWILA MUST BE ARRESTED The statement made by PF Secretary General, Davies Mwila, instructing PF cadres to forcibly take over the running of markets and bus stations is a criminal statement that borders on sedition and inciting lawlessness and subversion of authority and it is a recipe for anarchy, public nuisance and a serious threat to the peace and stability of our country. It is unbelievable that the Secretary General of the Ruling Party and a former Lawmaker can be issuing such criminal instructions inciting civil disorder against lawful authority. Sections 57, 92 and 101 of Cap 87 of the Laws of Zambia clearly states that any person who utters any seditious words (Sedition, being the organised incitement of civil disorder against authority, herein being the Local Authority, which is the Authority mandated by the Republican Constitution to manage and run markets and bus stations) is guilty and liable to imprisonment for two years or to a fine not exceeding three thousand penalty units or both. Any person who excites disaffection against or undermines lawful authority is liable for criminal prosecution. Inciting lawlessness is a criminal offence that attracts a jail sentence. First of all Davies Mwila must understand that markets, bus stations and taxi ranks are public places and every citizen has the right to trade or do business within these premises regardless of one’s political affiliation. Markets, bus stations and taxi ranks are not a property of PF they are public property therefore it is illegal and totally unacceptable for anyone to try to force members of the Opposition out of these places. Mr Mwila has confirmed what we all already know that some PF cadres and PF officials have forcibly taken over the running of markets and bus stations from the Lusaka City Council here in Lusaka and that these cadres and officials are actually extorting money from struggling marketeers and bus drivers operating in our markets. We have written to the Ministry of Local Government, complaining about this criminal behaviour but nothing has been done because this is part of the PF machinery and PF strategy: the use of thuggery and vigilantism to intimidate and control the masses. This is part of the PF strategy to enrich a few PF cadres and officials through illegal collection of money from markets and bus stations as well as the illegal and allocation of land. Today our local authorities are failing to perform their constitutional duties of providing goods and services such as clean water, sanitation, proper drainages, garbage collection, social amenities and so on because the taxes and levies that they rely upon to provide these goods and social services is actually being collected and shared by cadres and their officials. We challenge the Zambia Police to arrest Mr Davies Mwila for inciting lawlessness and civil disorder in our country. The police have in their possession the audio and video evidence of what Mr Mwila said and there is absolutely no reason whatsoever for them to be dragging their feet. This thuggish behaviour must be punished as it is criminal and a recipe for civil disorder. The post FDD Call For Davies Mwila’s Arrest For Inciting Violence appeared first on Zambia Reports.
