MILITARY ‘TAKE OVER’ ZIMBABWE; DENY IT’S A COUP BUT PROCESS TO PACIFY INSTABILITY … Army Mouthpiece Says State Capture By Criminal Elements Will Not Be Tolerated. Zimbabwe’s army has announced a military take over potentially bringing Robert Mugabe’s 37 year rule to an end. Army General, through a spokesperson, announced on national television and radio around 3:51 AM Wednesday that the military was only targeting criminals surrounding President Mugabe. The army representative said the military take over was not a coup, but a process to pacify a situation that was degenerating into chaos. The officer said the president and his family were safe. Earlier in the night, the AFP News agency twitted exchange of gunfire near President Mugabe’s private residence. The US Embassy issued a statement urging its citizens in Zimbabwe to shelter owing to a fluid situation obtaining in the southern African nation. Moments later, the UK took similar precaution advising citizens to take measures and not fall into harm’s way in view of increased military activity. The day was marred with uncertainty following Zimbabwe Army Commander General Constantine Chiwenga’s threat on Monday that the military would take over if the situation in the governing ZANU-PF spiraled out of control. President Mugabe fired his deputy Emerson Mnangagwa a few weeks ago paving way for his wife to succeed the 93-year-old leader. ZANU-PF members have objected to plans by First Lady Grace Mugabe to succeed the aging leader. Zimbabweans will wake up to a different reality this morning. The country is due to hold elections in March 2018. The post Military ‘Take Over’ Zimbabwe; Mugabe’s End Prescribed appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Bailiffs have reportedly seized 12 vehicles from the financially troubled Times of Zambia. Sources have disclosed that the company is failing to operate and servicing its debt has stretched its meager resources. Some employees have not been paid for over 8 months. “The company is officially in ICU. People who have the chance are jumping out and finding other alternatives,” a source said. “Operations at the firm are officially paralyzed and it’s likely to close in 3 weeks time as bailiffs have seized 12 vehicles from Times of Zambia.” While other sources say it is unlikely the Times will close in three week, operations are said to be affected by the liquidity situation at the company. Sources say only a good bailout from central government will help revive the operations at the company.

MMD die-hard youth national coordinator Gerald Chiluba has accused former party president Dr Nevers Mumba of misleading opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema into not conceding defeat. Chiluba says the stubbornness of his former leader has rubbed off the UPND president who continues to refuse to concede defeat in the 2016 election despite the move being detrimental to the re-organisation of the party for the 2021 elections. He said Hichilema had not refused to concede defeat in the previous elections and now that he has surrounded himself with Dr Mumba he is negatively influenced to try to hang on to a lost cause. “As MMD die-hard youth wing, we have noted with keen interest over the upcoming behaviour of not conceding defeat syndrome by HH to have been influenced by Dr Nevers Mumba. “After analysing the behaviour and attitude of HH, of all the 5 times he has lost as president, it is evident that his unique character is as a result of his close interaction with Nevers Mumba. “Just like they say “bad association spoils good habits” HH is a victim of bad association and the earlier he thought twice about his associates the better for him and his party. “We say so because Dr Nevers has a destructive mind which if not curtailed can lead to the total destruction of the UPND. He has been misadvising the UPND to continue singing songs of the petition just like he has continued to claim the presidency of MMD when infact it is a public secret that Zambians cannot dance to such songs as they are not danceble,” he said. Chiluba has since advised the UPND to distance itself from Dr Mumba. The post Hichilema Advised To Stop Hanging Out With Dr Nevers Mumba appeared first on Zambia Reports.

PF Kamwala Vice Youth Chairman Richard Soko is allegedly terrorizing residents of Kamwala in Lusaka using the ruling party banner. Soko has for months been accused of allegedly harassing residents of Kamwala in the name of the party. The latest incident happened when the official who is a mortuary attendant attacked a widow, her daughter and a son in law. Soko allegedly hurled insults at the couple last Friday. “Coming from his usually drinking sprees, Richard approached the car parked at the widow’s house in Kamwala and threatened to stub all three to death. “He said he was untouchable because he is a PF party cadre. The man was calling these people prostitutes,” the source said. According to the information obtained, Soko has since been reported to Kamwala Police but snubbed a call out for Monday. “He is also threatening people at Kamwala clinic where works as a mortuary attendant. He is openly boasting that no one can touch him because he is a PF official,” the source added. Soko is said to be unsettling many of his colleagues in the party although there seems to be no one to put the situation under control.

RYAN CHIKWETE JR Ba report please post this Question: Mr Hakainde Hichilema sir, the PF Secretary General Davies Mwila is on record saying “HH takatekepo” (HH will never rule) recently…any comment mr president?? HH: Before anyone can tell me that especially PF supporters, let them ask those chaps like Bowman Lusambo, Dora Siliya and other once die hard MMD cadres what they are doing in government today?? Was it not the same people who were saying, “Sata takatekepo”?..is it not the same PF they used to insult that they are benefiting from today? Davies Mwila is not God, it is the money that they have obtained through corruption that is making them talk like that, those PF boys and girls cannot survive on their own without taxpayers money. Those mansions they have dubiously built in Dubai will be taken away from them once they are out of power. In economics we say, “Properties or money obtained by dishonest means slowly gravitates to the true owners” and the true owners are hard workers. So make no mistake about it, UPND is forming government soon. People like Davies Mwila should not challenge God.
