It is extremely frightening to learn that Cabinet Ministers are in the forefront of planning to destroy and destabilize Zambia’s consolidating electoral democracy especially ahead of the August 11, 2016 general elections, Electoral Expert McDonald Chipenzi has charged.

And Chipenzi has called on the Police to quickly move in and search Justice Minister Dr Ngosa Simbyakula who has been implicated in the document themed “PF Domination Strategy 2015-2016 and Beyond”.

Search - PF documentThe document spells out the use of violence by PF against the opposition UPND, labeling the opposition as tribal as some of the tactics to be used for the ruling party to maintain power.

Justice Minister Dr Simbyakula is alleged to be one of the three authors of the document discovered Friday evening at Mushipe’s Law Firm during a search in which the Police were looking for seditious materials alleged produced by named UPND members.

Below is a full press statement by Chipenzi who is also former FODEP Executive Director:

APRIL 16, 2016

It is extremely frightening to learn that Cabinet Ministers are in the forefront planning of planning to destroy and destabilize Zambia’s consolidating electoral democracy especially ahead of the August 11, 2016 general elections.

The discovery of a paper themed “PF Domination Strategy 2015-2016 and Beyond” document during the Zambia Police Service’s search at Lawyer Martha Mushipe’s law firm implicating Minister of Justice who is also PF National Chairman makes great sad readings and an eye opener to all of what PF was planning ahead of the 2016 General Elections.

No wonder, political violence in the country has only been condemned rhetorically without practicable steps to end it from the government and ruling party side but continued to point an accusing finger to the opposition.

The police must now move their search exercise to Dr. Ngosa Simbyakula and the other two authors, with Zimbabwean names, to determine the real motive behind such a document of the PF Domination Strategy on the opposition which involves use of political violence and ethnic hegemony.

If truly, the Police are working professionally and ethically, Dr. Simbyakula and other persons must be searched thoroughly and if found with a case to answer, they must be arrested for allegedly producing materials aimed at stabilizing the country’s multiparty democracy and breaching the constitution.

Dr. Simbyakula should also resign on moral grounds as Minister of Justice because his continued stay at the Ministry of Justice will be a mockery to Zambia’s justice system, rule of law, democracy and human rights.

There is no way a Minister overseeing issues of justice, democracy, rule of law and human rights could be implicated in sinister activities such as alleged production of domination strategy over the opposition using violence and ethnic hegemony.

It is, therefore, embarrassing also to President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and Minister of Home Affairs, Davies Mwila who authorized and signed the search warrant respectively to search Counsel Martha Mushipe’s law firm leading to exposure of the PF’s evil machination against democracy and the people of Zambia and also ended up implicating Hon. Dr. Ngosa Simbyakula.

In this regard, Hon. Mwila should order another search on Dr. Simbyakula and his two colleagues and further demand a statement from Dr. Simbyakula to exonerate himself from such clandestine activities aimed at stabilizing the country as a Cabinet Minister.

Dr. Simbyakula’s alleged involvement in such activities has undermined President Edgar Chagwa Lungu’s rule and Zambia’s motto of One Zambia, One Nation and must with immediate effect drop Dr. Simbyakula as Minister, if he was not part of the exposed strategy to destabilize the country as PF President.

I therefore, condemn the continued harassment of innocent citizens like Lawyer Martha Mushipe and continued abuse of state institutions by those in power when culprits are well known and left free.
