25 Armed Police Officers besiege Kambwili’s house

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Former Minister of Information Chishimba Kambwili was this morning besieged by 25 armed Police Officers and six officers from the Office of the President.

And Kambwili who has confirmed the development says he will not be intimidated. He says the officers had been trailing him from yesterday when he arrived in Luanshya where he is a member of Parliament for Roan constituency.

He posted the following message on his Facebook page:



I woke up this morning and found over 25 armed police officers and 6 office of the president officers right outside my gate. From last night after I arrived in Luanshya police and op have been trailing me, trailing me as far as going into Shoprite right behind me. What is this nonsense ? I am not a criminal, I am a law abiding citizen who deserves to be treated fairly. This state of emergency was not called to trail and harass Chishimba Kambwili.

My home is private property and I am entitled to private life without police harassment, I now fear for my life because these police officers can easily kill or plant something at my home to incriminate me. I’d like to warn the police to immediately stop abusing their powers and focus on arresting arsonists and law breakers. Whoever is sending these police officers to harass me and my family should know that time is of the essence. Mind you I have not been in my constituency for over two months because of constantly being followed by OP officials, baring in mind that I am a constituency man and I make an effort to see my people every weekend, this harassment is becoming a burden on my ability to deliver my campaign promises. I am utterly appalled at the behaviour of these people, instead of them being out there chasing criminals they are following Chishimba Kambwili for reasons best known to themselves.

As soon as I came out of my gate the police officers began to scamper in all directions but I managed to follow one car and confronted the officers, when I asked them what crime I have committed for me to be harassed in this manner they had no answer and simply said it’s not our own doing.

Whoever is behind this must know that I will not run away from my own home, I will not run away from my responsibilities because I am not a coward.

  1. State of emergency. You voted for it. Why crying so loud, you mean you did not know what you voted for?

  2. Hon. Kambwili, you had narrow interests in your political career. You benefited a lot in your political career. Government contracts and doing substandard work. Supporting Lungu for you wanted to be a minister. Insulting other tribes and the oppositions. Closing the post newspaper.
    It will take time people to forget what did.

  4. “Instead of being out there chasing criminals, their are busy chasing Kambwili” Kambwili says in his statement. But Mr. Kambwili you are the criminal yourself that is why the police are chasing you. Why are you ruling yourself out of the list of criminals? I would like to point it out to you sir that you are criminal. Mr. Kambwili is one of those people who have a false sense of importance. He reminds me a lot of Vernon (VJ) Mwaanga (another Honorary Doctor) but that’s the story for another day. My take on Kambwili is this; Mr. Kambwili could never have become a Minister in Zambia under normal circumstances. Lungu discovered this late. He only became Minister because of Sata’s great appetite for tribalism. In my view Sata was the worst president Zambia has ever had because of his tribalism. Kambwili is a very low quality (caliber) leader. Anyone who can fight with a Mishanga boy Lusambo must have his head examined. Kambwili failed lamentably as a Minister. When Sata tried him as Minister of Foreign Affairs, there was a revolt by Zambia’s Cooperating partners to have the fellow removed or even fired. At the Ministry of Information the story was no different. And to imagine this is the guy who now thinks Zambians can catapult him to State House is a thing that boggles the mind. Does he believe in his mind that he can beat Lungu, let alone HH? Kambwili would not even beat Msoni, Chipimo, ZDDM’s Sakala or Chamba (Dobo)Sikamba. Kambwili is not in the same league even with people like Milupi, HIV formula Sondashi or his former boss Wynter. Maybe the only person Kambwili can beat is Muliokela. Let him not get things twisted. Zambians will not vote for him even if he uses the tribal card.
