Lusaka police summon Kambwili

By Staff Reporter

Police in Lusaka have summoned Roan member of parliament, Chishimba Kambwili to appear for inquiries this afternoon at Lusaka Central Police station.

This is according to a callout issued to the opposition National Democratic Congress consultant dated February 21, 2019, signed by deputy DCIO, P. Sapaulu.

“Hon Chishimba Kambwili .…is required at Lusaka Division headquarters (Room E3) on 22nd February 2019 for inquiries at 14:00 hours. Your cooperation will be appreciated as he/she will not be detained unnecessarily longer,” reads the call out.

On Wednesday Chief Government spokesperson Dora Siliya warned  Kambwili that he risked being arrested for uttering derogatory and racial remarks against an Indian national seen in a video that has gone viral on social media.

Speaking to journalists in Lusaka, Siliya reminded Kambwili that his sentiments were not only discriminatory but against the laws of the country.

“Mr. Kambwili’s actions have the potential to endanger the lives of Zambians living in the diaspora. It is disappointing to see such actions coming from someone who once served as minister and is a law maker,” said Siliya

But Kambwili refused to apologise for reprimanding an Indian national who he found operating a compactor under the Lusaka decongestion project.

Kambwili has come under fire for his actions with some stakeholders challenging him to apologise to the Indian community and the Zambian people for the embarrassing ranting.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Kambwili is seen uttering remarks against an Indian national who was found operating a compactor and demanding that he goes back to India.
