KAMPYONGO BARS HH FROM VISITING KAMBWILI IN PRISON.
By: Anthony Bwalya
Ladies and gentlemen, we are under siege and none of us is safe anymore, in the very land of our fathers – paid for by the blood of our ancestors.
President Chishimba Kambwili of the NDC is in prison, convicted by a Judge who should never have been sitting on the judicial bench for soliciting bribes on the record.
Judge Simusamba was recommended to be removed from the bench by the Judicial Complaints Commission and yet this thug and cadre of a judge was allowed by the PF to remain on the bench for purposes of frivolously convicting Kambwili.
And to perpetuate the political persecution of CK, President Hakainde Hichilema of the UPND has just been prevented from visiting his colleague, brother and counterpart on instructions from and by Stephen Kampyongo.
Prison officers have indicated that HH must seek and obtain express clearance from the Home Affairs Minister in order to visit CK.
While this is going on, the PF want the nation and the world to believe and trust, that opposition political parties will be allowed to campaign in prisons at the height of the 2021 general election, when they are incapable of allowing mere prison visits to take place without interference.
Do you fellow Zambians, believe that Kampyongo will allow us to go into prisons to tell prisoners who are serving severe and harsh sentences for petty crimes when the Minister himself, a known beneficiary of the fraudulent procurement of firetenders at $42m is walking free?
This is what a breakdown in the law looks like.
If we remain silent, we will one day wake up to a fully fledged militarized state where all our constitutional rights and freedoms will be in the hands of rogues and elected criminals.
