SAD: Tonga Group ‘Tongas Under Oath’ Marks Bembas For Death: Leave Southern Province Or Die Like Dogs

A CLANDESTINE group going by the name ‘Tongas Under Oath’ says it has killed three Bembas and will continue doing so until President Sata reverts Chirundu and Itezhi Tezhi to Southern Province.

In a letter dated Tuesday, August 14, 2012, addressed to President Sata and copied to the Inspector General of Police and the Minister of Home Affairs, the group leader only identifying himself as H. Mweemba said seven other Bembas have already been poisoned and will die soon.

The letter reads in part “We the Tongas under oath are now in serious warfare. Like we promised, this is an update. We wish to inform you that so far we have killed three (3) Bembas – 2 adults and 1 baby in Southern Province.”

This, they say, follows demands that all Bembas should leave the province if government does not give back the two districts.

“Our demand is simple – ‘Take Chirundu and Itezhi Tezhi back to Southern Province’. We gave the 30th of June 2012 as the dealine for all Bembas to leave Southern Province or we be given back our Chirundu and Itezhi Tezhi – you have opted for war-we are going to fight you Bembas effectively and courageously,” reads the letter.

The letter also states that the group uses different post offices for mails “for security reasons”, and their address is ‘C/o Mazabuka Municipal Council, P.Box 670022, Mazabuka.’

The group threatened it will only disclose the names and addresses of its victims once it has increased their numbers.

“Seven (7) have been poisoned and are expected to die sooner or later. The battle between the Bembas and Tongas is continuing and we are assured of victory. After numbers increase, we will give you all the names and addresses of all those we will have killed,” reads the letter.

The letter ends, “Like we demonstrated in our earlier mail, we do not negotiate, we fight-we are not scared of your IG or Minister of Home Affairs- we will give them copy of this letter.”

And commenting on the letter, United Party for National Development UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma said his party does not condone actions of violence, hatred and tribalism.

The UPND, highly critical of government policies, have their stronghold in Southern Province.
But Mr Kakoma said his party believes in dialogue and that killing or poisoning people will not bring about any solution.

He said the renegade group should be dealt with in accordance with the law because they have admitted to committing a crime.

“As a party, we do not support such acts of violence and hatred and we believe in dialogue because it is talking that will bring about a solution for any problem,” Mr Kakoma said.

    Tumfweko your article on HH linking him to an imaginally group bent on injuring other citizens is should learn to be professional in your reporting. when this country goes in flames you will be the same idiots and your sponsors who will run away from this country when us the innocent remain sufering. you want to trade your moral with money it will lead you into a pit.

    Its simple ,let’s stay away from Tongas in any way possible.For precautionary measures I can now not date a Tonga , eat food from a Tonga friend or get close to a Tonga person whether in business or any other way

    We are zambians and those people they are killing didnt change the names.God will purnish you.Remember you have tongas doing business all over zambia so careful with the war you bring.

  5. Concerned citizen   September 4, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    Can three people die or disappear without an alarm or someone reporting a missing relative. Unless it is a slow poison; can seven people be poisoned without an alarm. Appears like lies lies lies.Be mindful that rogue media were part instigators of the Rwanda genocide.When violence broke out, I am sure some media personnel and hundreds of thousands of innocent people also died. lets avoid evil intention and thought.

    Only a dull person can believe in this rubbish. Use your brains blockers! Some politicians are trying to start up problems so that it looks like the oppositions are behind it

  7. mwenye makasa   September 4, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    i do not have much to say here,but let the police find out those that have been said to have been killed.and investigate if its true that the leta has been writen by a tonga or someone who want to bring confusiong between the two.then comments will follo leta.

    You can see Tongas, how your anger for bembas has made u to do supid things!!! but for this u will pay with your blood. One thing u forget is that you few and you are cowards but u always want to start war and when u butched then u cry foal.

    Am not suprised by the development, because somehow somewhere i saw it coming! u can never hear a tonga saying good things about a bemba. but all in all go on with your killing and let the fun bigin.

    I doubt whether a politician would want to antagonise a potential electorate in such a manner. HH cant have anything to do with this

    This is nonsense. Ba Tumfweko, you may be trying to be close to the govt for favors and money, but you are playing a very dangerous game. Such things can blow up very easily. Imagine if a Bemba person was killed tomorrow on whatever reasons, this can cause repercussions and before we realize, we can be in a civil war – the last thing any Zambian will want.

    Let the Love of God prevail over our nation. We should concentrate on finding solutions to ending poverty and backwardness. Killing each other is a sheer waste of time. I pray that this is not happening and that this is just a silly story. We need each other…as the saying goes ‘make love and not war’

  23. Francis Mwansa   September 5, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    HH think…..

  24. Samuel Mubanga   September 5, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    It is really sad to learn of such things. I thought we are all one in the image of God. Lucky Dube sang a song “Different colour one people”This extends to different tribes one people.Surely,who ever came up with this idea is insane and will not achieve his/her cruelty objectives. God Almighty wipe them out because they are angels of doom who the devil is using to destabilise your people.

    We have intermarried and created a strong bond with our Tonga sister and brothers, wives and husbands.Can people stop dreaming and stop causing fear. As it is Bembas will have fear to trade not alone intermingle with they Tonga friends vis visa. Which is unhealthy.

    However, safety Kulisunga we mwine, because we have no tangible truth.Just in case this true I urge my bemba brothers and sisters to be careful until this proved otherwise. And allow time.

    This is a cold war that has been declared if it true.Can we have the government stand on this issue because it is a grave threat to both tribes.
    Ba Sata shikulu could you please come and hold a conference and let people know the truth about this.

    I am Bemba but I do not buy tribalism because it is devilish to think that way.

    why mwabikapo picture ikwete umuntu ulelomba ubwafwilisho?seriously,u wil never find a real tonga with such an apearance.remove this bemba woman from the streets of lusaka

  26. kakolwe   September 5, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    The biggest NATIONAL FOOL is the publisher of this nonsense. it should first have submitted to inteligence to investigate. Like this, any Bemba who dies in Southern (even from masterbation) will cause worry! Grow up fi reporter.

  27. Z Guy   September 5, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    In as much as this story may be false, we should not over look it. The tension between Ts and Bs is real as a peace loving Z guy I would only urge the investigative wings to find the “loot causing” “ba shulumune umushila” so as to clear this nonsense. And if caught the idiots must be castrated and thrown behind bars for life.

  29. Basa   September 6, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Please this is ridicurous, how can you believe this. Many tongas are married to bembas, Do you think they will start killing their beloved ones in homes??????????????? I love my bemba husband and his family, they are so amassing!!!!!! catch those foolish tongas…………….

  32. kamwala   September 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Tongas are useless and selfish so never get married to a tonga man

  33. kamwala   September 13, 2012 at 11:04 am

    A beauty of a woman is marriage, those who are single and like going out with other people’s huband you should stop you are just putting a curse on your boby. married men are good for nothing batter look for someone single.
