Sean E. Tembo

The ruling UPND Lusaka Province Deputy Chairman Mr. Saul Cornhill referred to University of Zambia workers, students and graduates as dogs, in a well shared video.

According to section 65 of the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Act No.2 of 2021, calling someone a dog amounts to a criminal offense of hate speech. If Mr. Saul Cornhill was an ordinary citizen or a member of the opposition, we have no doubt in our minds that he would have already been arrested by now.

We therefore challenge President Hakainde Hichilema and his Inspector General of Police, Mr Lemmy Kajoba to come out clear on this matter and tell the nation whether in their view, referring to someone as a dog amounts to hate speech or not. If it amounts to hate speech, then the UPND official must immediately be arrested.

If Mr. Saul Cornhill is not arrested, then the conclusion will be that referring to someone as a dog does not amount to hate speech. If that is the case, then going forward, we in the Patriots for Economic Progress shall be addressing every official in the UPND administration with the title of “Imbwa”. For example; Imbwa zaku Home Affairs. Imbwa zapa Force Headquarters etcetera. The bottom line is that we cannot have a country where criminal laws apply only to the opposition and not the ruling party.

  1. I agree with Mr. Tembo. That language was too strong. Seeming the same man was representing our party. Kindly call him and let him explain just what gave him so much power. With people like him, we will start losing membership. This is not the change we voted for. He might have a point but the manner he presented his argument!

  2. In the video , I have not heard the ruling UPND Lusaka Province Deputy Chairman Mr. Saul Cornhill referring to University of Zambia workers, students and graduates as dogs.The augment was about the UNZA management claim to the land and that is why at 1:34, he refers to management as imbwa za pa UNZA.

    Mr. Mwale,even then was wrong to refer to UNZA management as dogs but we must not escalate the situation to say he was insulting the graduates and current UNZA students.He needs to apologise the UNZA management.

    This is not the first time people have been called dogs.
    Chishimba Kambwili, who insulted as dogs the people of Chawama in his quest to continue showering unprintables on President Lungu has been summoned to appear for questioning at Lusaka Central Police Station today.(28th August 22019, Daily Nation Newspaper.)
    Was he arrested and charged?

    • Yes he was. Someone identified the insulted chawama imbwa and lodged a complaint to Police. The rest of Chawama who did not think of themselves as dogs just carried on without any ado.
      Mr Sean zero Tembo should lodge a complaint to Police not to social media and watch the Police arrest this foul mouthed misplaced so called UPND official. Mr. Tembo you have insulted the current president so many times, and your sponsors PF even dressed up dogs with HH chitenges. The fact that you have not been arrested does not mean we are quiet about your insults.
