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.

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.

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.
