EVIL CAR­TEL BACK WITH A VENGEANCE

Daily Nation Newspaper - - FRONT PAGE - By AARON CHIYANZO

The car­tel has re­grouped, they are back and this time with more vigour for vengeance and new tricks. They will stop at noth­ing to see to it that a le­git­i­mately elected Govern­ment is re­moved from power. The po­lice re­ally have to be vig­i­lant— Mr Lifwekelo

Sec­tions of so­ci­ety have warned that the car­tel which is bent on aveng­ing the cur­rent Govern­ment and en­sur­ing that it is re­moved from power is back.

Zam­bians should brace for neg­a­tive po­lit­i­cal cam­paign mounted by the Car­tel, which has re­grouped and is in­tent on un­der­min­ing the ju­di­ciary, ex­ec­u­tive and po­lit­i­cal process.

The is­sue with the British govern­ment is an in­di­ca­tion of the col­lu­sion that is be­ing un­der­taken to de­monise the Chi­nese and in the process un­der­mine govern­ment cred­i­bil­ity. Politi­cians in­clud­ing ZRP Pres­i­dent Wright Mu­sona, have warned that the car­tel which is bent on aveng­ing the cur­rent Govern­ment and en­sur­ing that it is re­moved from power is back. This fol­lows a num­ber of calami­ties that have rocked the coun­try, in­clud­ing the re­cent ri­ots that claimed a life at the Uni­ver­sity of Zam­bia. Bish­ops Coun­cil of Zam­bia (BCZ) sec­re­tary gen­eral Able Kaela and for­mer UPND deputy spokesper­son Ed­win Lifwekelo said in sep­a­rate in­ter­views that the car­tel was back to cause havoc in the coun­try. Both Mr Lifwekelo and Bishop Kaela warned that the car­tel would stop at noth­ing to see a le­git­i­mately elected Govern­ment ousted from power. They called on law en­force­ment of­fi­cers to be vig­i­lant be­cause the car­tel was com­ing up with new schemes daily to desta­bilise the coun­try. “The car­tel has re­grouped, they are back and this time with more vigour for vengeance and new tricks. They will stop at noth­ing to see to it that a le­git­i­mately elected govern­ment is re­moved from power. The po­lice re­ally have to be vig­i­lant,” Mr Lifwekelo said. Mr Lifwekelo said that the poverty and hard­ship that some dis­grun­tled in­di­vid­u­als were us­ing to in­sti­gate pan­de­mo­nium was as a re­sult of their self­ish deal­ings. And Bishop Kaela warned the po­lice against fight­ing the car­tel with kids’ gloves, say­ing that some dis­grun­tled politi­cians were be­ing treated like sa­cred cows. He said that the in­ves­tiga­tive wings should not treat the re­cent hap­pen­ings in the coun­try in iso­la­tion as they were in­ter­linked. Bishop Kaela re­it­er­ated that the dis­tur­bances and other evil in­ci­dents which had rocked the coun­try were all schemes of the car­tel work­ing against Govern­ment. He also warned that the car­tel might have in­fil­trated the civil ser­vice and that there was need for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion which should not leave any stone un­turned. Mean­while, for­mer UPND spokesper­son Ed­ward Mumbi de­manded that rev­e­la­tions that a truck de­liv­ered tyres at a dump­site within UNZA cam­pus prior to the riot break­ing out should be thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gated. Mr Mumbi also said that sus­pi­cions that an in­vis­i­ble hand in­sti­gated the re­cent riot at UNZA should not be over­looked by in­ves­tiga­tive agen­cies.
