Cartel holding Sata hostage behind scheme to humiliate RB

Filed under: News |

The letter inviting former president Rupiah Banda for questioning by the Anti-corruption Commission was allegedly authored by Fred Mmembe, Mutembo Nchito and their clique to achieve their motive of humiliating the former Head of State.

Sources within the Ministry of Justice and PF government have disclosed that ACC had nothing to do with that letter except appending a signature under pressure from the same powerful cartel that is holding president Michel Sata hostage.

“As you noticed the call-out to RB was in form of a letter which is not our normal practice, instead of a normal security call-out that we send to people for interviews,” sources said.

Sources said ACC does not need to explain to people they invite for such interviews like was the case in that letter to RB.

“The cartel is not happy with amount of international recognition the former Head of State has been given at various foras such as awards, lectures, and heading election monitoring teams in various countries,” the source said.

Sources said RB seems to have grabbed more credibility than Kenneth Kaunda and the current president Michael Sata.

Sources also said there is a serious attempt to divert attention from the ailing president Sata and his failure to manage the affairs of the country as per PF election promises.

“As you may know, the president is literally bed-ridden and non-functional hence the cartel taking advantage of the sad situation to usurp state powers,” sources said.

According to sources, the whole thing is a well crafted scheme where they even refused to have RB interviewed at his house because they thought it would not attract media attention which they wanted to capitalise on.

“As you know, these people also have a habit of trying and convicting people in their media through a relentless campaign of hate against their perceived enemies,” they said.

Sources said, the ACC Director General was made to sign the letter and the same people rushed and delivered it to the public media which they also control.

As a result, RB got the letter after the story had already been given to the press by the same cartel.

“It would be of interest for you guys to ask the public media as to who gave them the letter with that speed,” sources said.

And these are the same people who have looted the Task-Force seized properties under late Levy Mwanawasa hence their desire to register the London judgement in order to hide their plunder as most of the seized properties under the former Task-force have been left as bare shells empty of value.

  1. The calls to disrobe RB of his immunity implicitly call the removal of immunity of presidents from the constitution of Zambia. Why can’t we come out and simply agitate for the removal of the immunity from the constution all together so that sitting presidents do not live in the dream of protection forever.

  6. In just 3 years that he was president RB achieved what most leadrs fail to attain to date.He built schools,hospitals, roads etc and handed over power smoothly and as if not enough prefered a more quiet and peaceful life than the barking life of Wynter Kabimba and his other failures

  8. the idea of calling Rb was a good one.infact if i had a chance to advise Rb i wouldnt have hesitated to tell him to face the ACC. if he has not stollen y not not go there. it is emarransing to come from a country full of thiefs who are not ashamed of themselves.

    when Rb is called a thief all zambians going abroad face the consequences, imagn.

    go and let them question you. uyopa chinji!!!!

    • Dear Limbwendu,
      RB is not fearing anything.That is not the way he can be called. He is a great statesman. If you have a family I am sure there is an acceptable manner your wife invites you to come for a meal even when she is not happy with you. I like RB coz he fitted very well in Mwanawasa’s shoes. We did not feel the gap Mwanawasa left so much coz of good leadership from RB. It was project after project and he left a sound economy and treasury. If he is a thief then elaborate because as for u RB is a better thief that we love so much. We love you RB, walk tall. You maintained economic continuity and jealous down. Your rein brought pride to Zambia. Bravo RB.

        • RB was a very good leader there was alot of sanity in the management of the economy,We got formula one urban roads FOR INSTANCE which we are enjoying NOW especially this rainy season.

          Deliberately you PEOPLE have decided to forget that and just supporting blindly, come-on, open your eyes. Voting one in power does not guarantee you that he is a good leader(At one time in the Bible GOD decided to tell the people to chose their own leader and they chose a DEMON) You can vote for some one who latter turns into Edea Mini.

          At least we had nothing like the news being full of deaths, escalating meali meal prices. Now it looks like people have run out of Ideas and you just keep supporting blindly you are the ones who even put people in problems by casting your votes on wrong names. You dont even know what their constitution is, what they believe in and what their policies are and how they will affect or benefit the country or not (Just GOOD at Blind Supporting -ABASH )
