    No one is above the Law, this Lady is facing the wrath of the Law because of her involvement in issues which the courts of Law see to be a criminal offence. There is no common criminal in the courts of Law, having money doesn’t make one special, our able judicial house is doing what we have long waiting for. Take for instance the SAMSUNG owner is caught for involvement in criminal activities and no citizen of his country is supporting him, the way some folks support the so called elite of Zambia. M’membe and Mutinta have a case to answer so GBM & Masebo shouldn’t interfere in whatever the courts of law or police are doing, let them prove not themselves innocent and they will be set free. Giving solace will not help because no Zambian is happy to see some few people fraudulently enriching themselves whilst the majority are left in overt poverty.
    It doesn’t mean suppressing the private media, unless if they are saying that all the private media outlet owners are under the wrath of the Law, then as the able Zambians we will question the government.
    But M’membe’s case is well known even to the street kids in Lusaka, they will tell you that kabili sibangalipile TAX ku ZRA……

    If Zambia does not clean up its act and begin to uphold the rule of law, we will soon have no country to talk about. Personalities such as GBM have never been and will never be the caliber of leaders that Zambia needs for true transformation.Zambia will do well to ignore them. It is unfortunate that today we have a lot of people with questionable characters in leadership positions even in the PF government and we expect the nation to move forward. Our nation has actually been hijacked and needs to be freed. The rot is actually in most political parties-ruling and opposition alike. Hooligans now rule us and their fellow hooligans in opposition are telling us that they should not be answerable before the law of the land fror obvious wrongs they have committed !!! We will no longer stand for this rubbish!!!

    When this big fat fetid old of excrement was giving himself govt contracts to haul maize and feasting off my tax money, the media was just fine. Now the nigga has a conscience? Phuck him and all like him. Let such muthaphuckers rot and die slow like Regina.
    It’s only that it is illegal to kill politicians that saves these fellows. I think that our complete current crop should be shot with anti aircraft guns along with their families as a warning to all aspiring politricksters!
