The PF government is relentlessly fighting online media but its top members are key followers of major websites reporting on Zambian politics.

On Tuesday, finance deputy minister Miles Sampa – President Sata’s nephew – and  minister in charge of chiefs Nkandu Luo, were caught on camera during a Lusaka council meeting keenly browsing the Zambian Watchdog as deliberations were underway.

This was on Monday during a full council meeting which was also attended by Vice-President Guy Scott who is Lusaka Central MP, Mandevu MP Jean Kapata, Matero MP Miles Sampa, Kabwata MP Given Lubinda and Chawama MP Edgar Lungu.
Thirty councillors out of the 33 were present at the meeting which started at 14:55 hours and closed after 18:00 hours.

The latest attack on the PF government on online publications is coming from Clement Andeleki – the Registrar of Societies in Zambia.

Andeleki has given the Zambian Watchdog a 48-hour ultimatum to provide a physical address and pay up K18 billion or face de-registration.

President Michael Sata, Wynter Kabimba (justice), Goeffrey Bwalya Mwamba (defence), Given Lubinda (foreign) and information permanet secretary Amos Malupenga have all among top PF officials wanting to see the Zambian Watchdog disappear.
