  1. Lol. These are serious jokers. Okay so when are you going to question his alleged abductors?. JJ has been making noise in parliament for over 2 years they never thought of arresting him for the previous crimes. Romeo Kangombe and friends abducted a police officer in Mpika. We shall resurrect the case, Mwaliteta bundled ECZ officers in 2016..that case will be resurrected, Kungo case too. This abduction will be too fresh to forget just like the Mongu incident. Future is surely holding some possibly interesting cases.

  2. Ulufyengo talwama! Lesa tafwaya ulufyengo. Fya fuma ku abduction fyaya kuli attempted murder! How? And the abductors at state house should not be too excited because they will be arrested under the next government! Kabili Hichilema and Upnd have set a precedence, so Levy Ngoma and Hamasaka will be dealt with by the next government! Fikaba bwelela ba Upnd na Hichilema. It’s them who will suffer in the end and not Jay Jay Banda!

  3. This case will be thrown out of court, the same way voters will throw out Hakainde from the presidency.

    This is all tax payers money that Hakainde is throwing away.

    So now it makes sense why they tried to abduct him. He must have clobbered one of the police abductors senseless and run off.

    Vote wisely in 2026.

  4. But how far with the issue of abduction?I thought we were going to be updated,the police decided to retrieve cases from archives why? honestly speaking behavior of JJ banda is not good and it was not good.

  5. Kikikikiki. Someone during his press conference indicated that umulandu taubola. Avoiding investigating his Staff at State House for abduction, they go into the archives. It will be rough for these guys once out of power. Some will flee like Siandege to neighboring countries.
