POLICE LOOKING FOR WATCHDOG EDITORS FOLLOWING LUBINDA COMPLAINT

Leaks in from Lusaka Central Police have revealed that a docket has been opened against owners and editors of the Zambian Watchdog website for criminal offenses. This follows a criminal libel complaint to the police this afternoon by the PF chairman for local government Given Lubinda. According to the Police source, Lubinda complained that the website published a defaming article bordering on criminal activities. The site claimed that Lubinda and PF had received $42M from Afghanistan and planned to send Zambian youths to assist the American soldiers in the war there.
The Police are since looking for both owner/s and editors of the Watchdog. The source disclosed that officers working on the docket will tomorrow visit ZICTA to establish the source.
This is the second time that the Watchdog has hit head-on with the law after the Mathew Mohan publication that attacked Zambian Judges. The complainant in the first case was Amos Malupenga of The Post who mentioned and attested that the editor of the site was/is Emmanuel Mwamba (late FTJ press aid). Mwamba was incarcerated in prison for a few days and is currently on bail.
Other internet reports have indicated that ownership of the site has since changed hands in the last 4 weeks to the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema. The reports have further stated that the current editor is UPND’s deputy spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa (who has conspicuously been quiet on Radios in the last 4 weeks) and been collaborating with presidential press aid Dickson Jere.

    The last item of Dickson Jere is true. He has being seeking for people with hacking abilities and I heard this from him personally. He is desperate to control content, but the Lubinda story also sounds true and if they did infact hack his email the hacker must be protected by state as this would be what I would consider as ethical hacking and protects our nation from preys.

    ZWD is a useless piece of reporting. The chaps don’t verify any stories at all. I remember last year they called a friend of mine Congolese national when in essence this guy is a pure breed Zambian with both his parents having served in govt for a long time.

    Now that we are in power what these guys writing about. Viva PF Viva Michael Chilufya.

    The writers need to be cage because they are a disappointment to human race. They are fit to be animals because they are evil. According to Sigmund Schlomo Freud, “Man is Evil. Man is destructive, Man is a potential danger of himself and others”.

    Let the writers pay for their sins!
