Bene ba filimu, bali pee naka immunity…..pure agony.
In the US, leader of the Oath Keepers has be sentenced to 18 long yrs over the Capitol Hill “invasion” fiasco. Ironically he was not even physically present at the Hill.
Do you people remember when HH was rescued through the roof of Sun FM in Ndola? One of the Gerabos who was with HH was gunned down in Kitwe and this was seen but never acted upon.
Obedy was beaten by known men – CK and Saboi are the witnesses to the killers all is left unspoken of. This is cheap politics
Are you the spokesman for the police. You can’t be the complainant and the jury. Leave the police alone to do their job.
Nobody is above the law.
At the rate of how politicians are being arrested in this government, we need more prisons and Courts to handle the workload.
And what is the status of the case of motor vehicle theft by the first lady which led to all the fracas? Surely the country can’t be treated to scenes of a police battalion raiding the former President’s house , even using grinders to bring down the gate…then you
go quiet?? It doesn’t make sense.
It makes sense to me. What doesn’t make sense to me is, Why didn’t ECL’s family open the gate? 2 . Why did ECL family call cadres when less than 5 officers visited them in the first place for fact finding(few questions)?
