PF regime deports Mwanawasa’s ex-business partner saying he is Al Shabaab terrorist

Al Shabaab fighters

The Zambian Government has deported Abdul Rwigara Simwiya, a former close partner of late president Levy Mwanawasa to Rwanda.

Simwiya came to Zambian in 1979 and has been doing business for the past 25 years. Simwiya is a business partner of TAZARA managing director Aka Mbikusita Lewanika and Mbita Chitala.

Simwiya runs a number of businesses including bureau de changes. But the Zambian government accused him of being a terrorist with close links with East Africa Al Shabaab network. But the main reason he has been deported is that The PF regime believe he supported the MMD financaially. Home Affairs Minister, Edgar Lungu, announced the deportation of Simwiya, 69, at a press briefing in Lusaka.

He said Simwiya was flown back to his country of original aboard a Kenyan Airways after it was established that he obtained Zambian citizenship by use of false information. “Mr Simwiya came into the country in 1979 and applied for a citizenship the following year which was granted in 1986 but that he lied that he was from Congo yet he was Rwandese. The Minister further revealed that Mr Simwiya’s stay in Zambia has been punctuated by all sorts of wrong doings which prompted his ministry to deport him.

It is not known why the Zambian government hates Rwanda so much that they have deported a second person within  six months.

Lungu said after discovering Mr Simwiya’s dirty deals and his connection with some terrorists in East Africa, government could not let him stay another day in the country for security reasons. He added that besides being a danger to society, Mr Simwiya was involved in active politics and was funding a named opposition political party and bragged that he was untouchable because he was connected to people in authority. The minister warned that government will not hesitate to deport any foreign national, whether rich or poor, who will defy their conditions of stay in Zambia. Mr Lungu noted that all the deportations made are done with consultation with relevant departments to ensure that the security of the nation is not tampered with and added that Zambians should not complain when some foreigners are deported because government is doing so to protect its citizens.

    LEVY MWANAWASA FOR A PERSON WHO CLAIMED TO HATE CORRUPTION KEPT STRANGE COMPANY – GOSWAMI GALEDHU SHAWI FAWAZ AND FATHER MATANHI NOW THIS GUY Abdul Rwigara Simwiya. LEVY WAS JUST A THEIF LIKE FTJ BUT NOT TO THE SAME EXTENT AS THE MA FIASCO FTJ. REBURY THE FORMER PRESIDENTS AT LEOPARDS HILLS CEMETERY AND STOP WASTING PRIME LAND AND STATE FUNDS MAINTAINING THOSE PHARAOH TOMBS.

    Thanks PF. Please keep on deporting them. The MMD allowed this culture of foreigners becoming big headed without respecting the local. Look at South Africa. Our friends do not allow the kind of nonsense we take from foreigners and yet investors keep flowing in SA. So you idiots, stop blaming the govt..atase.

    With every unjustifiable deportation, investor confidence in Zambia is plummeting. We have bottomless pits on the Copperbelt and are now actively creating more in NWP in the name of Copper & Gold mining. Right now, Our efforts as entrepreneurs to bring in venture partners with both capital and technology to help us diversify our economy are being frustrated by poor diplomacy and foreign relations management by the PF government.
    L.P Mwanawasa (MHSRIP) did his utmost best to ensure the attainment of high levels of investor confidence, which is the key catalyst to increase FDI, on which our economy thrives. Remember, it’s individuals that invest, not companies! Companies are just entities used to promote the individual’s interests. Therefore, the individual’s behind these companies will not steer the stern of their corporations towards us with this unjustifiable level of intolerance!
    Zambezi Portland Cement?
    The PF is surely just a front for selfish motives ! Am disgusted with this regime of crackheads!!!!
    YAK…..!!!!!!!

    Fellow Zambians I don’t understand why we target our missiles at the wrong target. In PF govt, ministers can NEVER make independent decissions. They ALL look up to Sata. Edgar Lungu can NEVER find time to look for illegal immigrants because he is half drunk and half asleep most of the time. The real culprit is our president who passionately hates anything that has to do with those sympathising with the opposition hence statements like Kabimba’s alleging that Zambians want a one party state. Ironically Kabimba, Edgar Lungu,Fred Mmembe, Musa Mwenye, Mumba Malila have all done law yet they are a pain in our flesh. The world over today glorifies De Klerk of South Africa for accepting the abolishment of apartheid together with Mandela. Both are lawyers. They joinly won the Nobel Peace prize. But what do we see of our lawyers in Zambia? They team up with dictators and brutalise zambians all because they want to live in fantasy. Shame on these unlearned counsels.

    The beginning of the end. Why is it that once Zambia comes close to becoming a prosperous nation, stuff like this begins to happen, we were going alright in the late 60’s beginning of the 70s KK decides to do something that eventually turned out to be a big mistake.Now we are on the verge of breaching the self sustenance barrier and some invisible strings pull us back. this will see a rebirth to the brain drain…….SAD

    • ZERO BRAIN DRAIN  December 16, 2012 at 12:27

      NO BRAIN DRAIN THIS TIME AROUND. ZAMBIAS EDUCATION ISNT VALUED OUTSIDE OF ZAMBIA THANKS TO MMD! THERE WERE NO STREET KIDS IN THE 70s AND 80s.

  24. oga  December 14, 2012 at 17:47

    Zambians, can’t you for a change trust your govt? You want to wait untill he shoots a Zambian then you cry high heaven.You must appreciate the fact that as you are enjoying your sleep defence and security wings are guarding and protecting your lives. You wake up in the morning not even knowing. Dont trivialise the security of your country. Some of these people being deported have run away from their countries ask why ?Its a fact that the 20 yrs of MMD’s corupt rule introduced alot of criminals in this country and its time they got flushed out if we are to prosper.

    Ezron,you are really dull. the zambian premier league is telling you that chitalu scored these goals in the 1972 zambian league games + international matches. what has nursery school got to do with this? you are the muzungu anikonde type of guys,so brainwashed that when you start talking with a white guy,you even change your accent. i will tell you another thing,this fight about chitalu has been there for a long time. i remember in the 80s as a small boy,my uncle told me about this record. so people ave been talking and trying to get it recognised since then. but its fools like you who keep watching english premier league,spanish and italian that you forget your own. how would you know about chitalu when your focus is arsenal or is it chelsea. knowing the history of these clubs by heart,knowing the transfers of player from time in memorial by heart. but am glad fifa has somewhat opnened your eyes. they dont want to recognise our chitalu and if you have any brains at all you will start to see that abalwani will not respect your own(chitalu) compared to theirs(messi,barcelon,chelsea). but you will still blindly follow the chelseas of this world. why spend all the money on beers watching english premier league? instead of using that money to buy a ticket for 10-15 pin at the gate at woodlands to watch national assembly play zesco or some other games in zambia. when Ezron did you last watch a local league game and dont cheat us here? be patriotic, no english man or spanish man is watching your league later on even buying your players with a few exceptions. even when we are african champions,they still wont get our players. just watch congo zaire league if you want international matches. be patriotic. so corrupt you are. even your name is borrowed. Ezron. why cant you get a zambian name? where is your pride. show me any chinese,british,american who has a zambian name? they will only have it if and only if they were zambians turned american,british e.t.c. in short there is no white man with a zambian name in israel,spain or britain. when kanshi will you people learn? am tired of this ignorance. Even your identity sure such as a name is also taken? kwena mulampapusha!!!

    THERE IS TIME FOR EVERYTHING AND PF GOVT MUST PULL UP THE PERFORMANCE AND ACT SWIFTLY AND AT THE SAME TIME WITH WISDOM. LETS CLEAN THIS COUNTRY. THERE IS ALOT OF LAWLESSNESS AND MADNESS IN THE MANNER THESE INFESTORS( INVESTORS) DO THEIR BUSINESS.

  33. Kaliza  December 14, 2012 at 16:02

    Next will be Kalaki, to be deported to Utopia! Ati protecting Zambians? Soon you will realise that Zambians need to be protected from these marauding callous so called politicians in PF. Just what is happening to mother Zambia?

  34. kambaji  December 14, 2012 at 15:55

    Notice how no one talks about the Mwanawasa legacy. President Sata was supposed to be the best suited person to uphold it and not RB who was accused of abandoning the legacy. The young man Patrick even joined PF on the understanding that the Mwanawasa legacy would survice under PF. Can some tell the nation how the PF is upholding the Mwanaawasa legacy. Yet it was made to be such a big issue during the elections?

  35. Jack  December 14, 2012 at 15:50

    Good point, gunase of Kitwe and that thief Shawi are looming streets killing people in the name of PF while innocent investors like shimwiya and MD for larfrage and Zambezi Portland have been deported!

  36. DISGRUNTLED YOUTH  December 14, 2012 at 15:44

    So why havnt you deported the Kitwe based Senegalise,Gunase, who has plundedred our emeralds? Is it because he is funding the PF party? Stupid idiots. Time will tell !!
