  2. Achiever you are missing two points:

    1. The law in Zambia does not apply to the PF Government!

    2. Mwiinga is a Tonga so presumed to be UPND so the law has to take its full course!

  4. Corruption is indeed well and alive in Zambia. Its part government-owned mining company ZCCM-IH has been overrun by bribes and nepotism lately.
