Binwell Demands Accountability as Government Abuses Power

The people of Zambia are living in fear as the government continues to abuse its power and disregard the rule of law. Recent events surrounding the disappearance of Honourable Jay Jay Banda and the police’s treatment of Honourable Binwell Mpundu have shaken the public’s trust in the very institutions meant to protect them.

According to Honourable Mpundu, the Nkana Member of Parliament, a large contingent of 16 police officers descended upon his residence on June 8th, as if he were a dangerous criminal. This action followed a police summons that Mpundu allegedly ignored on June 6th. However, Mpundu refutes this claim, stating that the police have his contact information and could have easily reached him.

“How can the police come to ambush me as if I’m a common criminal?” Mpundu questioned. “I’m a person of fixed abode and the police can easily call me, which they have done before, and I have always complied.”

The public is rightfully outraged by this heavy-handed tactic, which seems to be a pattern of behavior by the authorities. Similar concerns have been raised regarding the case of Honourable Jay Jay Banda, who was found bruised, contradicting claims by the Minister of Defence that he was “perfectly fine.”

“Hon Jay Jay is found bruised and the medical reports and the police indicate as such, but Hon Jack Mwimbu holds a press briefing denying that Jay was perfectly fine with no injuries,” the statement read. “Meanwhile, the guy was perfectly fine has been in a state hospital for two weeks now. How is a person who was fine supposed to be in hospital for two weeks?”

Furthermore, the Minister of Defence is accused of lying about Banda’s cooperation with the authorities, stating that he chose not to provide details about his abduction when, in fact, Banda had given the full details and named the people behind the incident.

The public is now questioning the government’s sincerity in addressing these issues, as the police have yet to summon or question the individuals named by Banda, despite their obligation to do so.

“We are a very country where people can trivialise such an important issue, going about inconveniencing innocent people, yet we have real suspects in the matter who have been named by Hon Jay,” the statement continued. “We need to get serious, gentlemen. We are not demanding any special favours, but answers as to what happened to Jay Jay, and if you are not prepared to do the right thing, then just close the whole thing, and we’ll continue going about our lives.”

The citizens of Zambia are clearly at their wit’s end, as they feel betrayed by the very institutions meant to protect them. They demand transparency, accountability, and swift action to address these concerning issues, lest they lose all faith in their government.

The people of Zambia deserve better. They deserve a government that upholds the rule of law, respects the rights of its citizens, and acts with integrity. Until these fundamental issues are addressed, the public’s cry for justice will only grow louder.
