Staunch PF Cadre Max Chungu has mentioned President Edgar Lungu and his Political  Adviser Kaizer Zulu in the car deal goes sour involving $150, 000 by some PF Cadres.

And Chongu has accused Zulu of having organised the infamous Call-boys from Intercity Bus Terminus to beat him up.
Joseph Mwenda of the local online media, News Diggers reports that the violent known PF Cadre was beaten on Friday in bizarre circumstances involving car deal allegedly involving President Lungu, his political advisor Kaizer Zulu and the Zambia Cooperatives Federation executive director James Chirwa.
Chongu told the publication that Chirwa gave some PF cadres US$150, 000 to buy him a Range Rover, which they never delivered.
He said when Chirwa asked for the car, the named cadres claimed that they bought and delivered it to State House for President Lungu as a gift.
Chongu who does not miss a chance to jump on the defence of the President and the PF, claims that it was at that point that he got involved to try and defend President Lungu’s name, a move that annoyed the State House political adviser, who is alleged to have reacted by sending cadres to beat him.
“Chirwa sent Phil and Kelvin to go and buy a Range Rover 2017 model, that’s how they went to South Africa. But balilya indalama, $150,000 yaba ba [James] Chirwa. Then balebepa ati ilya motoka ni KZ ule shitila ba President (they stole the US$150, 000 from Chirwa, but they are lying that the car they bought was arranged by KZ for the President). And quote me exactly what I am telling you,” Chongu is quoted by the News Diggers.
“Now, baisa kuno, ulya umwine wa motoka ba Mr Chirwa, bale ipusha ati ‘motoka ilikwisa?’ Ati no, ‘ni Kaizer Zulu uwalandile ati tuleshitila ba President’, ati ‘ni gift iyaba President’. Yali this year mu January, nomba I asked them ‘ba President kuti batuma imwe ukuba shitila motoka?” Baleshupana na ulya muntu (When they came back, Chirwa asked them for the car, and they said Kaizer told us that the car was a gift for the President so we took it to him. It was this year in January. So I asked them how the President could send them to buy a car. They started arguing with that man. That’s when today they came, then Kelvin and Phil called ba Intercity youths saying let’s go and beat Max, he is publicising that story.”
He complained that the cadres followed him at Northmead.
“They followed me at Northmead and I can even point [at] them, I know them. They are upset because I was defending the President I was saying the President cannot send someone to buy a car. Ba Chirwa gave them money to buy a car, they brought the car to Zambia and sold it. Ba Chirwa ZCF director asked them, they are saying ‘no, it is the President who got your car’,” he narrated.
“They bought the vehicle, sold it and ate the money and now they want to use the President’s name to hide. Me I was defending the President and this is what happened. People swindled money from Mr Chirwa, the ZCF chairman. They are saying ‘Kaizer is the one who sent us to attack you because you are blowing our secrets’. Let me give you their names, Kelvin Mutale and Phil Chikuwa.”
Max Chungu gained fame when in he represented the country in the popular DSTV show Big Brother but has become known as a violent PF cadre. During the 2016 election campaign Max went to Eastern province to try and cause confusion in Petauke but was beaten badly before being taken to the police by members of the campaign team of the independent candidate.
