‘Prophet’ Chanda Chimba III and others also face arrest

Filed under: News |

Zambian dictator Michael Sata’s government has now ordered the police to lock up freelance journalist Chanda Chimba III and former Information and Broadcasting Permanent (PS) Secretary Sam Phiri when they appear for questioning tomorrow at Patriotic Front controlled Government Joint Investigating Team.

Dictator Sata is particularly incensed that Chanda Chimba’s prophetic chronicling events of the then opposition leader’s political career videos ‘Stand Up for Zambia’ are now a big hit on the internet and can be viewed worldwide, such as this one here  and here

Former Information PS, Sam Phiri is being accused of having allowed the airing of the prophetic documentaries on ZNBC TV.

Highly placed sources within theTaskforce have disclosed that Chimba has been summoned to report at their offices tomorrow and will be locked up after interrogation.

Others expected to appear before Sata’s oppressive Task Force are Ngande Mwanajiti who was the producer of the Zambian Analysis newspaper which was also critical of them Sata and his PF party in the run-up to elections.

“They are actually upset that we have not been doing anything when they summoned. To be honest, there is nothing criminal in what we are summoning for but we have to work under instruction,” the source said. “May be if the videos were not on youtube, it could be a different story.”

Chimba, producer of Stand Up for Zambia television documentary, is expected to appear for questioning on Wednesday January 9, 2013 at 10:00 hours. The sources have further revealed that Chimba will actually be formally charged and arrested on charges yet to be leveled against him.

Chimba’s documentaries among other things highlighted the Zambian Airways saga, the PF aligned Post Newspaper debt to the Zambia Revenue Authority. The documentaries also gave insight on how the PF teamed up with the Catholic church and some non-governmental organisations against the administration of Rupiah Banda.

The documentaries also show President Sata’s stinging attacks on the late President Levy Mwanawasa and his health.

According to the sources, it is clear that President Sata is determined to finish Chimba for his documentaries.

“If Chimba is taken to court, how will the proceedings unfold especially that Mutembo Nchito, the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, sued Chimba in a civil matter over the same documentaries regarding Zambian Airways?

“Will he get a fair trial under the circumstances for whatever it is he will be charged with and arrested for?” sources wondered.

  6. CC3 will merely cite his scripts as excerpts from both the print and electronic media. In citing the print media, The Post served as his greatest source. Shall then not the almighty Fred be indited? We expect a fair and judicious trial, not a prejudiced one. I wish the case files could land in the palms of Charles Kajimanga, Nigel Mutuna or even Justice Musonda!

  7. Pliz stop this idea of harrassing Journalists, and where the media houses and organisations to allow this bullshit happening in our backyard? CC3′s messages are prophetic and the prophesy has come to pass, let CNP dispute this. Richard Sakala, editor for the independent Daily Nation is equally persecuted, wat kind of nation is this. The Army can you do something smart that used to make KK shake bcoz we have suspended the rule of law in the country and Zambia shall never be a good place for any one of us unless it is a good place for all of us.

  11. Lies in the morning, lies in the afternoon, lies in the evening! When the lies start becoming desperate then we know that the noose is tightening around the watchdog! Woof! Woof! Your source of information is going to be expelled, your writers are gonna be locked up for embezzling tax payers money to fabricate stories, your fake Reverend will be exposed and President for all Zambians will seek asylum in Ghana!

    • How do you claim these to be lies? You can suggest that their sources are going to be curtailed and all that but lies? Certainly not. Chanda Chimba’s documentaries are available online and that is evidence to see how prophetic this guy was. Sata, the PF and Mm’membe’s post are truly exposed and the exposure that the ZWD has done so far about the incompetences of the incumbent are bare for all to see and learn. Silencing the messenger does not suddenly make competent what is incompetent.

    • Is that so Mr George Chellah! Tell us more! You are still planning more of your evils? Anyway who doesn’t know how evil you are young man. But always remember you will not always be in State House and PF will not forever be in power. The bells that are toiling on others today may be toiling on you some day. We know how excited you are.

    PLEASE ARREST THE BLASPHEMER.We are a democracy.

    • What is different to what they are now doing to Nevers Mumba? If anything, the Chanda Chimba can be acceptable because it was a TV programme and the subjects of the documentaries had and I assume still have recourse to a remedy through civil action using defamation and libel laws. This may not be the case any more since the documentaries can now be proven. That in itself exonorates CC3. However, Mumba’s rights and freedoms are systematically being violated by the PF leadership using state machinery. An abuse of authority and Laws of Zambia by an entire Govt.

    • You are a fool. Chanda Chimba III was only telling you the truth. You are actually PF but just want to deceive us, we know you!!

  19. That was expected. In as much as he got those extracts from ZNBC and the POST, why didn’t he broaden his findings to other opposition leaders even the incumbent then. Castrate him in fact.

  21. Kindly use sober language on this blog. Even when one is saying sense, but if clouded by insults the message is totally diluted. Stop these insults forthwith. We are destroying our own Zambia. Man killing another man. Shame on you Zambians.The owners please find a way of sithing through some of these comments, they leave much to be desired. Please.

    • I’ve always been one of those individuals hailing obscenities at Sata.Lately it’s come to my senses that the old man never forced himself into statehouse but was elected by both rif-rafs & intellectuals.I blame the electorate for all the woes.LogicaIly I can’t expect anything from a grade 2. Frankly, Sata is smart for his level of education.Let’s just help the poor old man to complete his term in peace as we search for a new leader; not Chipimo of course. God bless the president so he may become wise!

  30. Follow Chanda Chimba programmes on YouTube. He merely used extracts from POST and ZNBC. He did not commit any crime. He is innocent so to speak though die hard PF will not accept this. Leave vengeance to God. Think about development than jailing people.
