The alliance of 10 opposition political parties has announced that it will report President Edgar Lungu, Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo and PF Secretary General Davies Mwila to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

Along with President Lungu, Kampyongo and Mwila, the alliance says it will also report State House aides Kaizar Zulu and Amos Chanda, and four PF cadres namely; Eddie Gowa (alias America 1), Francis Muchemwa (alias America 2), Mpange Kachingwe and Abel Mwale for orchestrating, sponsoring and perpetrating political violence in the country.

Chairperson of the alliance Charles Milupi told a press conference at Intercontinental Hotel in Lusaka today that the alliance has gathered enough evidence – of the alleged atrocities committed against the people of Sesheke during the recently-held by-election – to build a solid case against President Lungu and the Patriotic Front at the Hague.

“In Our Quest for True Justice, We in the Opposition Alliance Have Taken the Decision to Report Specific Individuals to the International Criminal Court in the Hague, for Orchestrating, Perpetrating, Facilitating, Funding and Executing a Well Planned Wave of Political Violence Across the Country, Which Violence Risks the Peace and Security of This Nation,” Milupi said.

“These individuals include the Following;
(i) Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu – President of the Republic of Zambia
(ii) Mr. Stephen Kampyongo – Minister of Home Affairs
(iii) Mr. Davis Mwila – PF Secretary General
(iv) Mr. Kaizer Zulu – Special Assistant to the President for Politics
(v) Mr. Amos Chanda – Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations
(vi) Mr. Francis Muchemwa (aka America 2) – PF Cadre
(vii) Mr. Mpange Kachingwe – PF Cadre
(viii) Abel Mwale – PF Cadre
(ix) Eddie Gowa – PF Cadre

“As Opposition Alliance, We Have Complete Trust in the Competence, Independence and Integrity of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and Their Prosecutors. On This Basis, We Strongly Believe That We if the Above Listed Individuals Are Not Guilty of the Crimes That We Accuse Them of, They Shall Be Acquitted Accordingly By the International Criminal Court in the Hague. It Must Further Be Noted That the Above List May Be Increased Depending On Additional Evidence that May Come Into Our Possession in Due Course.”

Earlier, Milupi gave a detailed account of how State House police in conjunction with PF cadres allegedly attempted to assassinate UPND leader in Maondo Village forcing him and his entourage to flee into the bush where the spent nearly eight hours.

And speaking at the same occasion, NAREP leader Elias Chipimo charged that the ruling PF have been frustrating the national dialogue process because they want to distract the people of Zambia from what they are plotting against them.

Chipimo says it is for this reason that the Church-led dialogue must continue and must be supported by all well meaning Zambians.

  1. Absolute nonsense – is it Lungu who was putting rocks and logs on the roads to block the Presidential Motorcade? Who sent bees and lightening to PF rallies – PF cadres?

  4. It is up to ICC to investigate and prove the allegations right or wrong. We also want them to investigate atrocities committed by the RB Regime in Barotseland.

  5. At first I thought the Opposition Alliance had some credible leaders who could think and act independently. Alsa! How wrong I was. It’s supprising that they’re all now dancing to the sympathy seeking tune of HH of trying to lie to the international cmmunity by creating false incidenies to justify their claims. HH has taken the route of the ICC before and what came out of that? Lies, lies & lies. As an alliance you’re free to exercise your rights but don’t aloe yourselves to be used by this desperate, power hungry and bitter HH or you’ll lose direction. You can go aheard with your intentions & wish you good luck.

  6. the story about President Lungu and other to be reported to the ICC is a joke and the most shallow plan political parties in Zambia have ever sat down to agree upon. It doesn’t make any sense at all.
