  1. Atleast we all know what type of reforms the CNP was refering to as regard to the police.at chipata police the traffic have become extremely corrupt.something needs be done urgently or we
    shall act against these officers.

  2. UPND and MMD should proceed with the rally with or witout the permit. Let us face the police and the PF huligans without fear.

    We have seen now that PF does not respect peace and it is a party thirst for blood. Let blood pool on 20th october and let Wynter and his mimion count the blood.

  3. PF and Sata, you are wrong to do that. Remember also that those tricks failed Kaunda government. They will surely fail you also. Zambians are already tired of your direction less governing.

  5. There is no longer any respect of human rights in Zambia. Lets compare the way God deals with us humans. We are free to worship or not to worship at all. God gives rain to the evil and good people equally. Is Zambia a christian nation? If so which God is our govt worshipping? Would they be happy if such things were done to them if they were still in the opposition? I only expect normal people to respond to me.

    • You speak like you OWN Zambians and that you are going to tell them who to vote for and they are going to OBEY you.

      This is careless talk. Please you own NO ONE apart from your family,

      Zambians are MATURE enough to vote for whover they want.

      The way we KICKED OUT UNIP, MMD – We will also kick out Pathetic Fools!!

  8. There shall be no war in Zambia in Jesus name, the courts can handle this issue if they fail to handle it professionally then MMD just needs to report this to Local and International Human Rights bodies. God bless Zambia and every Zambian who desires peace in our country.

  9. Look at the differences in the language. MMD was writing to ‘notify’ and the response was to a ‘request’. Who tells police that they are being requested for permission. The police should follow the law, not this nonsense that we have been subjected to

  10. Exactly the process of establishing dictatorship. Watch and See.

    I recall very vividly. While in opposition MCS held a political rally in Mandevu barely three weeks after elections in 2008. No one stopped him.

    Thats how politicians who are non-performers protect themselves.

  14. all the man power has been taken to western province. police should merely be informed of the rally not them determining when the rally should be held. who says you need the whole station to man a rally. how come opposition rallies are associated with violence when their friends in power can just wake up in morning and decide to have a rally and talk rubbish without a police permit. Zambia police you are pathetic and the police lady boss as well why don’t you just resign and stick to bedroom issues maybe you can do better in that department because you are a total failure an example of incompetency.

  19. It now confirms that our Police Service lacks the capacity to provide us with national security. If so, then why should we have confidence in the ruling party and government of the day? They deserve a “Vote of No Confidence” to say the least. Maybe even the set Mufumbwe By-Elections should not take place as the police won’t be able to handle the various political party rallies to simultanously take place there.

  21. Zambia’ Michael Sata was recently awarded with a Certificate in the USA at UN Headquarters for promoting democracy and freedom of expression and assembly in his country. But alas, I’m very surprised to hear the opposite is happening in Zambia hence, my worry is on what basis was he given that award ?

  27. ITS OFFICIAL WE ARE IN A BEMBA DICTATORSHIP

    voice of one crying in wilderness - October 12, 2012

  28. In the first place MMD must know is that there was no need to panic that the POLICE have denied them because the letter addressed is a notification to inform the police that there will be a Rally and therefor should go ahead with or without the police permit.

    When applying for a permit the Letter must contain words of asking for permission for a police permit. We go to Church in Large numbers do we every Saturday or Sunday ask for permits? I know that the police knows already that our assemblies are peaceful and if so since the party is a well known legal and recognized party usp, it mus go a head provided no violence is done. Police are not a Police force but a Police service and are to offer services to all citizens of Zambia.

  29. DICTATORSHIP: So the plan is to stop all political rallies unless they are PF ?

    Lwalwa - October 12, 2012

  30. Firstly, it was not a request and therefore it did not require to be denied or accepted. It was just information being passed on.
    Secondly, there is no need for mmd or anyone to seek permission to hold a rally or public meeting. It would be against the freedom of assembly provided for in the constitution.

    MMD = RE: notification to hold a rally

    Reply from police

    Police: re : Request for police permit to Hold a rally

    These are two different positions and concern

    • That is how chikyyyy the POLICE can be. Notification and request can not be mixed in this manner. But its posible with Zabwino Palibe

  34. This is a reply to another matter altogether. The letter from the MMD is entitled: “Notification of Intention to Hold a Rally at Mama Monti Basic School Grounds” which does not require a reply, maybe an acknowledgement at most. The police is replying to a “Request for a Police Permit to Hold a Rally on ….”

    So if the MMD did not send a request, let them go ahead with the rally.

  35. You idiots raised a lot of nonsense concerning the budget presentation but after being shamed by Hon Chikwanda you foolishly shift attention to a more useless issue concerning your bedfellows mmd, who cares if they v been denied a permit, just admit your childishness and lack of analytical skills you maggots

    • Want something about the budget? Well, first, Chikwanda seemed to be seeing it for the first time going by his poor reading. I know he can do much better. Also he would have noticed that it repeatedly referred to the next five years rather than four. This confirms that the preparation was as ZWD had reported. For now, I will stop here and I haven’t even touched the contents.

What this silly police woman is saying is pure lies. MMD should just ignor this Pathetic Fool carder and hold the rally as planned.
