Dismissed Deputy Patriotic Front Chairperson for Elections Kelvin Bwalya Fube has let his inner feelings about being jettisoned from the high table by preaching the glories of loyalty. Fube, popularly known as KBF has used the example of former DRC President Laurent Kabila who was murdered allegedly after having defied the loyalty code. Below is KBF’s Note: KBF WRITES: Today I celebrate the life of a gallant Son of Africa Laurent De’sire’ Kabila one of the courageous men in Africa it’s now exactly 16 years since he was shot dead by his 19 year old body guard Rashid. Kabila and his child soldiers walked 2,000 Kilometres to Kinshansa to go Oust longtime Dictator Mobutu Sese Seko who had turned Congo’s economy into his personal bank account. The west didn’t not see the arrival of this Marxist leader in a favorable light. About 3 months before President Kabila’s death had his long time friend and ally Masasu discreetly assassinated in Pwetu Kabila feared Masasu’s popularity might overshadow his, Masasu was the one who had recruited most of Kabila’s child soldiers and later body guards when Masusa was killed the body guards who Kabila had treated badly with meager salaries received the sad news with alot of frustrations. Not long Kabila was shot dead with 6 bullets in his chest. Lessons I learnt from Kabila’s assassination is that; 1. Never despise people who are loyal to you or who help you get on top. 2. Our true enemies are not external but the ones we dine and wine with. 3. Never ever forget or change when you get on top.

Luanshya was yesterday cast in a fragile peace as UPND president Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy arrived in the town for their court cases. Hordes of police officers were deployed around the court premises to keep watch of the situation as previously matters have spiralled out of control. Business as the court premises was suspended as Hichilema and Mwamba landed in the premises. The duo through their lawyers Jack Mwiimbu and Mulilo Kabesha alleged that their clients were being harassed by the police. Magistrate John Mbuzi said that it was unfortunate that court business had to be suspended arising from the high handedness of the police. The police and the UPND have had clashes in several court cases across the country with matters having come to a head last year forcing High Court judge Mwila Chitabo to suspend the hearing of the election challenge the opposition party has in the High Court. Magistrate Mbuzi has set tomorrow as the date for commencement of trial. Hichilema and Mwamba are charged with unlawful assembly and seditious practices.
