Fr Bwalya arrested

Filed under: Breaking News,News |

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 15.54.56Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) leader Frank Bwalya has been arrested.
Fr Bwalya was picked by police at Radio Mano in Kasama this afternoon. He was in the middle of speaking on the radio when the cops stormed the radio station and picked him. He was talking about his renewed red card campaign, this time against the PF.
‘They picked him up by the belt like a common criminal,’ said someone who witnessed the event.
It has not yet been established what offence they will charge him with.
On January 4, 2014, Fr Bwalya wrote that:

The red card campaign was understood by many as a campaign to remove MMD from power. However, the founding document of the red card called the Buchi 2010 Declaration clearly stipulated three issues that the campaign hinged on namely; 1. A just, durable people driven constitution that would be in line with the multi-party culture Zambia has embraced; 2. Commitment to fight corruption (Against the backdrop of the acquittal of FTJ) and 3. Demand for good governance. The declaration was published in the Post Newspapers and recited at all Save Zambia Conferences.
It is therefore fitting that the Rec Card Campaign (RCC) is here again. This time with a bid bang and promising to be the most power campaign ever mounted in Zambia because it has been supported by various interest groups including CSOs, LAZ, political parties, Churches, Student Bodies, and many others who are part of the current demand for a new constitution. It will be a powerful campaign because MMD this time are participating as well. As I gave out cards in the Cathedral today, Hon Kaingu as Vice President of MMD got one. Several MMD members were not happy that I carried only a few for distribution. Join the campaign now and participate in putting an end to reckless wastage of public funds in endless constitution review processes. I will deliver one card to RB and ensure the media captures. I know that he will be glad to have it.

    • Are you sure he is what you are calling him? Your post sounds more like what you are calling him

  10. He may not havew the quality but may be a useful tool to bring change and remove the idiot at statehouse. he said his ambission is not the presidency!

    Awe Mwe - January 7, 2014

    • “Useful tool” or useful i4i0t?

  11. Isn’t he marketing another “clown”, himself? Or do you honestly believe Frank has the requisite qualifications to make a good president?

    Native - January 7, 2014

    • He hasnt said anything here about his want to become president.

      Panga Fighters (PF) - January 7, 2014

      • When he resigned his ZESCO board chairmanship he said he wanted to be President. Check Costa Mwansa’s The Assignment footage.

  12. Since RB was the most corrupt according to you Boondocks, I suggest that you volunteer as a prosecution witness so that this country recovers from RB what you allege he stole. Since Frank publicly apologized to RB and other opposition leaders it’s doubtful he’ll be joining you as a prosecution witness.

    Native - January 7, 2014

    • What big beef do you have with Fr Bwalya? The man apologized and for goodness sake he has moved on in a positive direction. He made a mistake and infact we all did when ‘we’ all voted this madman we have in state house, so lets let bygones be bygones shifting the blame gears wont help anyone of us, let all move on bro!

  16. Sata is risking and making a revolution inevitable. Where is the rule by 10 commandments? He did not even understand what he had declared! I am slowly getting agitated by his crude style of rule. Shame!

    Nadi Wei - January 6, 2014

  17. This sounds like the following— Amin’s rule was characterized by human rights abuse, political repression, nepotism, corruption, and gross economic mismanagement.

    ShoSha Rocks!!!! - January 6, 2014

  18. Mother Bwalya can only be taken serious if he admits and appologises that he misled pipo against MMD. Its him,mulongonti,mpombo,post membe,shakafuswa,katele kalumba,chitala and a few others who decampaigned RB.Tell the Lozi that u fooled them, then we can join the redcard.

  19. If father Bwalya & GBM have zanmbians people at heart they must join UPND. This can be the only they bring maturity in zambian politics.

  20. Now the zp are busy hunting down dictator’s presumed enemies. HH is vindicated wen he rightly puts it that this president is brutal and divisive

    Kanenga - January 6, 2014

  21. I like Fr Bwalya thts how leaders should be EVEN IF U SUPPORTED SOMEONE if he is WRONG HE IS WRONG. and on this SATAn is WRING. lets be principles like Fr Bwalya…….SATA was a promising LEADER to everyone

    • Once bitten twice shy, we’ve forgiven just not forgotten.

      Native - January 6, 2014

  22. Learn to forgive and move on! Fr. Bwalya openly apologised to the people of Zambian for campaigning for Sata-n and repented. What kind of activity of reviewing his actions and feelings of contrition or regret for campaigning for Sata-n do you want him to show if what he has done is not enough?

    I though his public confession and commitment to oust Sata-n in 2016 is enough repentance?

    He admitted his guilt, and made a promise not to campaign for Sata-n again. Is this resolve not enough an attempt to make restitution for his wrongs? If possible, he would single-handed reverse the harmful effects of campaigning for Sata-n.

    Check your heart; forgive and move on!

  23. This is a problem! Frank Bwalya blindly led the young and gullible people of this country into this situation. RB is a retired politician who even relinquished his MMD party presidency so why add insult to injury? This is what lack of foresight does to a nation. A sad situation indeed. People like George Mpombo, Mike Mlongoti need to share some of the blame for getting the country into this position because they put their personal interests above the country’s too.

    Native - January 6, 2014

    • He apologised we chipuba. He even went on to relinquish his lucrative Zesco board chairmanship to show his disgust at Sata Claus. What more do you want the man to do?

  24. This so called father is not a factor.He demonized MMD in preference for his Bemba Party.Such characters are not trusted.In any case no Priest has ever been a good leader,more so the cotholics.Ask Haiti.They are demonic in nature good at amassing wealth.

    • Sir Avoid tribe at every point we are one people.Two of my Namwanga nephews are married to Tongas and are happy..

      Truth Seeker - January 6, 2014

      • Mr Truth Seeker sir, whether you like it or not Bembas are notorious for misdemeanors. Notoriety is genetically imbedded in them like we judge Nigerians and Congolese. Tongas and Lozis also have their fair share but not as extreme as other tribes.Arabs are known for their violent suicide antiques.You can’t change such behaviour, even Japanese are good at committing suicides while Americans are gun slingers.Just accept that you are a problem.

        Advocate - January 6, 2014

  25. If someone doesnt advise the president to sober up, this use of the state machinery to brutalise and scare ordinary citizens can rapidly ran out of control and whoever its author will fail to but the genie back into the bottle. Might is not always right, we may be a small ax, but we are ready to cut you down. Dialogue is the best way out of the impasse. Swallow your pride and dialogue. The more the government (more like Sata) get entrenched in his position, the harder it will be for him to get out of the position without losing face. Let sanity and that rare of commodities, common sense prevail.

  26. Fr Bwalya has nt bin arrested by police,instead he was picked by police for his safety after suspected pf cadres stormed the radio station to beat him.Lets b proffessional.

    • And why does he stand charged for defamation now?

      Native - January 8, 2014

  27. Headline in Mmembes Post “Cops save Frank Bwalya from lynching by Kasama PF cadres”. What a bunch of liers!

  28. The balless one has now declared war on anyone who is not an ass-licking PF rat.

    Bobby Digital - January 6, 2014

  29. Pwa ha ha ha ha he he he he he he! Don’t even involve RB in your fo0lishness Fatherless Bwalya. You insulted RB left right and centre while convincing some equally fo0lish Zambians to vote for PF. I hope you rot in jail for demonising an innocent man. You showed RB the red card and he left the play ground peacefully. Now he is just sitted on the stands enjoying the game. A referee doesn’t give a player he just ejected the red card. What for?

    Kasebas Bum-shorts - January 6, 2014

    • I thought you disliked Sata so why not support Father Bwalya?

      Kasaka - January 6, 2014

      • Wouldn’t that be the mis-guided belief that your enemy’s enemy is an ally Kasaka?

        Native - January 6, 2014

    • RB was not innocent, he was one of the. Most corrupt and useless leaders at the time. Frank had the right to decamping him, except that he marketed a clown to Zambians and the fools of Zambia voted for him.
