I’m ready to hand myself to police – Pilato

Musician Chama Fumba popularly Pilato writes:


Reports say, I have been reported to the International Police by the Zambian government for protesting corruption and running away from hooligans. I will be happy to hand myself to any law enforcement agency even the Zambian police.

The first day I started this journey I knew it wouldn’t be an easy one. I knew it was a journey in the wilderness. I perfectly understand that my own freedom of expression is my responsibility to stand by my own actions and words. This responsibility means that I should be able to face the law whenever required both the just laws and the unjust ones as long as they are agreed upon. This is not a path I chose with my guts but one that was chosen with very strong convictions of a socially just society. I do not believe that inequality and social injustice can overcome itself, this is something that those that believe in the ideas of a socially just society must fight for. I protested and I will protest again as long as the masses of our people remain deprived of a decent livelihood. There’s no justification why the president and his pets can be getting rich every day while the majority of our population keep drowning in the bottomless pit of poverty. I will again protest and demand for accountability as long as our people remain under-served.

The slave must be willing to pay the highest price for his freedom because those that enslave him may not be willing to let him go for free. This is what led to our own freedom as country.

I will wait for the Interpol to arrest me this week and next week…. If they don’t I will walk into the nearest police station here or even travel back to Zambia to be arrested. I am willing and ready to be arrested by the police and not the thugs.

Thank you

  1. Brother Fumbe,
    My polite advice to you is that there’s more to life than picking up quarrels. If you have wisdom as noted, share that wisdom politely with the intended individual or individuals. To ridicule, demean and have an antagonist approach to issues of life is an wise.We have never heard your family members rebuke you on national media electronic or otherwise. They are cultured and full of wisdom. I respect that. Your way of so called freedom of speech practice is warped up. Just seriously do a critical introspection.
    You say you are ready to hand your self to law enforcement, well I have a different opinion on that. What you should say is “am ready to apologize to all the people of Zambia especially to the directly propositioned targets.” That for me would show maturity. Remember you are not an island but have family. Don’t fool your self state machinery anywhere in the world is something you can’t take on. If you have any issues to discuss, the channels are ever open in Zambia and correct channels behind closed doors, your concerns can be channeled. In case you have forgotten let me school you on this channel. In Zambia today we have office facilities for all the parliamentary legislators. Those offices were created so that these people can interact with their constituents. See your area member of Parliament for any concerns not what you are doing. In a nutshell your acts are acts of selfishness. There’s more to life….. there’s more to life….

    • Why apologise when you have not done wrong you coward. It is people like you who are messing Zambia because you bury your hand in the sand or look the other way when things go wrong.

        • Isn’t it interesting that the guy condemns politicians who go to SA for medical treatment is in the same country for political safety. Irony.

    • The advice is correct.The tendency in the country now is that many characters think that to use derogatory words and demean those in authority in the most unpalatable terms denotes being fearless.The opposite is true.It is called being uncultured.Learn from the Opposition members in both USA and Britain.Do you hear uncivilized language.Right now Donald Trump is being accused of having stolen Clinton’s votes with the support of Russians who are alleged to have rigged the elections.Have we heard or read insults on Trump from Clinton?This is the way.

  3. This guy is just running away from his own shadow? Who is chasing him? Everyone is going about their business.
