Former Muvi TV security guard confesses to stealing from previous jobs




One of the four suspects who were recently detained for breaking into the studios of MUVI Television and stealing a variety of equipment worth thousands of kwacha has admitted guilt.

A magistrate was told by Kambani Kapila, 42, a former security guard at the same location, how he entered the building through the main entrance that was left open.

I entered MUVI television using the gate which I found open. They don’t lock the main door,” Kapila said confidently when taking plea before magistrate Trevor Kasanda.

Kapila and three other people are accused of breaking into a building with the purpose to commit a felony in this case.


Four individuals were detained by Lusaka police last month in connection with a theft and break-in at the MUVI Television Station.


Kapila and three other people were detained after investigations, and they appeared in court yesterday.

The other accused are Kabamba Mwape, Kelvin Kambila, and Shownlous Mwanza, who range in age from 20 to 40.

It is alleged that between the hours of 1:00 and 5:00 on December 16 and 17 of last year, the quartet broke into and entered the MUVI Television building with the aim to steal.

Five 22-inch Concord TVs, three Apple Mac laptops, one HP desktop computer, one CPU monitor, a keyboard, and one point-of-sale machine—all for a combined K111,650—were also taken.

Kapila admitted the charge once the charges were read out, while the other defendants all pled not guilty.

As of January 12, 2023, the court will read written facts and sentence Kapila, who first denied the charge.

PF MPs Urged to Embrace New Leadership Dynamics in National Assembly




Robert Chabinga

The leader of the opposition in Parliament, Robert Chabinga, has commended President Hakainde Hichilema for demonstrating a spirit of unity and magnanimity towards his predecessor, former President Edgar Lungu. In the midst of heightened provocations, Mr. Chabinga emphasized that President Hichilema and the United Party for National Development (UPND) are not responsible for the challenges within the former ruling Patriotic Front (PF).

Speaking from his position as the Member of Parliament for Mafinga, Mr. Chabinga advised PF Members of Parliament to acknowledge the changed leadership in the National Assembly. He urged them to embrace discipline and decorum in the legislative body, emphasizing the importance of non-political conduct and effective representation aligned with the wishes of the electorate.

“President Hichilema has demonstrated love towards his predecessor, former President Lungu, even in the face of heightened provocation. The challenges within the PF should not be laid at the doorstep of President Hichilema and the UPND. It is essential for PF MPs to accept the new reality and move forward,” stated Mr. Chabinga in a statement issued to ZNBC News in Lusaka.

He underscored the importance of maintaining discipline in the National Assembly, urging MPs to prioritize the interests of the people who elected them. Mr. Chabinga emphasized the need for constructive checks and balances from opposition MPs, fostering an environment of cooperation and effective governance.

“Opposition MPs have a crucial role in providing constructive checks and balances in the House. It is imperative for all MPs to refrain from antagonizing one another and focus on contributing positively to the legislative process,” added Mr. Chabinga.
