The lady officer assaulted by Special Advisor to the President for Politics Kaizer Zulu has hit brick wall in her pursuit for justice as the people around the case have chickened out. The lady cop identified as Jacqueline Nkulukusa has learnt that the price of justice is higher when medical officers washed their hands off her saying they could not process her complaint as there was no evidence of physical injuries. Nkulukusa reported the matter at Matero Police Station but has been told that the matter cannot be prosecuted as there were no physical marks. Police have opted to play it safe despite CCTV footage being available to confirm the attack on the officer. Zulu turned rabid when he was blocked from joining President Edgar Lungu on the podium during the awards presentation during the U-20 Africa Cup finals. CAF officials had none of Zulu’s pomposity and duly shoved him off the ‘high table’ which infuriated him.

The Patriotic Front has moved to dilute the heightening bad blood among some senior officials by saying there is no confusion in the ruling party. On Friday, Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and State House Deputy Minister clashed with the former labelling that latter brainless. Kambwili has also had a frosty relationship with Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo with Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini ruling him out of order for having made unpalatable remarks. But PF deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri said that confusion in the PF was a matter of perception. Phiri said that the party was standing in unity and that senior members were standing together. “The confusion the people are talking about we do not see it. I do not see I am at the secretariat everyday and people are in harmony,†she said. Phiri said that secretary general Davies Mwila had the support of the PF members and leadership. “Mr Davies Mwila has been with PF from inception and people are comfortable with him,†she said. Mwila’s stay at the helm of the PF chief executive position has oftentimes met resistance with President Edgar Lungu having been forced to come to his defence.

The people of Western Province will finally host the Kuomboka Ceremony for the first time since 2013. Barotseland has been a political hot potato with the absence of the Kuomboka ceremony in the last few years linked to the political atmosphere in the country. The people of Barotseland have been raising dust over matters of development and have even threatened secession from Zambia. Currently there are dissenters that have been facing court action over matters of independence of Barotseland. Western Province Minister Nathanel Mubukwanu said that the Kuomboka will take place on April 8. He said that the water levels this year had compelled the Barotseland establishment to hold the Kuomboka ceremony this year. The Kuomboka is the symbolic movement of the Lozi people from Lealui which is the wet capital to Limulunga which is on higher land. Not even the appointment of Inonge Wina as Vice President has appeased the people of Western Province. The post Kuomboka To Take Place After 4 Year Absence appeared first on Zambia Reports.
