By Mutale Mulenga- award winning investigative Journalist.
As an investigative journalist of more 20 years, I have for the past 3 weeks being trailing this case and interviewing several people including IG Kakoma Kanganja and Minister Lusambo and Minister Kapyongo.
In my interviews with the 3 and a few cadres including Kennedy Kamba, it has become clearer that these gassing incidents are being coordinated at State House by State house police and very senior people for that matter.
First of all, Inspector general Kanganja who is supposed to be in charge of the whole Zambia Police when presented with evidence that these attacks are planned and executed at State house could not hide his frustration at the evidence in front of him and kept asking me how I got the classified information. Needless to say, Kanganja admitted in not so many words, that indeed parts of the government have a hand in these killings but only State house police Commissioner can shed more details.
My interview with Bowman Lusambo was short and brief as he kept boasting of how PF have proudly executed this gassing project and how it must be seen as the opposition doing this and how PF is eager to blame it on HH and Chishimba Kambwili. “We need to fix those 2 politicians, they are a threat to us enjoying these positions”, said Lusambo.
“As PF, we are in charge of state machinery and no one will be charged in this episode even when some police who don’t know what is happening, arrest them because we want to show Zambians the American style that only PF can protect the people of Zambia though we know we caused the gassing. That is how America does things too”, said Minister Lusambo. Have you seen someone brought to court after arresting them by police? It tells you that these are our boys doing that. Many people have been arrested but we release them because they may implicate mudala Lungu.
We will emerge even stronger as PF after we stop gassing people boasted Lusambo. Minister Kapyongo was himself adamant that the gassing will stop once the Commander in chief Edgar Lungu tells Kamba and his boys to stop. My job is just to supply police uniforms to our cadres doing the gassing. As we speak, we have 10 groups each in Lusaka gassing people and only in western,southern and Northwestern are not being gassed because we can not find nyanja and bemba speaking people willing to do this job for President Lungu there because they will be caught. If we find Lozis and Tongas and Kaondes willing to gas people in those other provinces, we will start even tommotow, said Kapyongo.
President Lungu’s target is to kill at least 3000 people.
An anonymous source further said this has to do with the public eating of the snake he did recently.
I was further informed that Dr.Nevers Mumbwa has been banned from state house and state TV and radio due to his correct interpretation of the PF scam which is offending to the dark evil forces sponsoring PF.
As I left the interview with Kapyongo, my face sunk into my hands and I cried uncontrollably at what PF is capable of doing to innocent Zambians just because of appetite for power. I lost my energy for 2 days.
