A CYBER security specialist from ZICTA has told the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court that he cannot conclude that a Facebook account that he investigated on behalf of the police belonged to Asher Hakantu, a man accused of defaming PF deputy spokesperson Mumbi Phiri.

Hakantu is facing one count of  libel but he denied the charge.In his examination-in-chief, Simatebe, 33, who is also a cyber inspector, testified before magistrate Nchimunya Simaubi that he was instructed by his superiors to investigate the connection of a mobile number and a Facebook account in the names of Asher Hakantu.


Simatebe told the court that he could not carry out a forensic analysis on any digital devices hence, he could not conclude that the mobile phone number was linked to the said Facebook account.
“In the absence of the devices or where digital forensic analysis was not carried out, I cannot draw a conclusion that the Facebook account is owned by the suspect,” he said.
And in cross-examination, Simatebe admitted that his testimony had nothing to do with what was contained on the indictment before court.
The allegation is that Hakantu between May 7 and 8, 2017, in Lusaka, with intent to defame Phiri, unlawfully published a defamatory matter on a WhatsApp group called “We need a better Zambia.”
The massage read, “Are you sure she didn’t sacrifice the innocent boy for her to come into the political limelight, who knew this finished scrap cargo before she lost her son in the Kawambwa school accident? Apusa maningi Mumbi Phiri.”
Trial continues.

  1. Paul Kagame’s direct role in 1994 Rwandan genocide: indisputable evidence:

    (Can someone remind me about what “sparked” the Second World War?)

    This is how Paul Kagame and RPF Tutsi Rebels “Sparked” Rwandan genocide: 1990-1994 period:

    1. By attacking and invading Rwanda as Tutsi Rebels from Uganda on 01/10/1990 exclusively targeting and killing Hutus and Twas only in the Rwandan regions neighboring with Uganda
    2. 1990-1993 Kagame/RPF Tutsi Rebels killed more than 2,500,000 Hutus and more than 30,000 Twas in the provinces of Byumba, Kibungo, Ruhengeri, Gisenyi, and Kigali Ngali. While more than 2,000,000 people were displaced and living in camps within the country under harsh and inhuman conditions due to persistent guerrilla war and sporadic attacks of Kagame Paul and RPF Tutsi Rebels.
    3. By targeting openly and directly and for no clear reasons the catholic church which is the voice of the majority voiceless in Rwanda and by killing innumerable priests, missionaries and many religious consecrated people and by killing finally 4 catholic bishops in 1994, prior to chaotic and disorganized fighting and attacks within Kigali Capital city of Rwanda.
    4. By intentionally and deliberately shooting and killing 2 sitting presidents: president Habyarimana Juvenal of Rwanda and Ntaryamira Cyprian of Burundi on 06/04/1994 in Kigali Rwanda.
    Further Signs and evidence
    5. By fearing to leave the power in Rwanda in order to evade facing justice because he gets immunity and impunity given to him by the state house as a head of state of Rwanda
    6. By silencing all mechanisms which are supposed to provide checks and balance to his leadership as a president of Rwanda.
    7. By continuing silencing, kidnapping, assassinating, imprisoning, exiling the proficient people in Rwanda especially opposition political leaders and their followers, family members, friends, relatives and acquaintances.
    8. By making Rwanda a no –go- area for freedom, independent media, and democracy.
    9. By continuing starving Rwandan people deliberately and intentionally so that they can never be able to revolt against him so that he can hold them in hostage until he dies.
    10. By continuing looting all Rwanda and RDC resources and keep them in other countries like Panama, Singapore, Morocco, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Seychelles, and UK and USA
    11. By perpetually cheating and lying the whole world that he is a model leader when he is not.
    12. By turning Rwanda into a police and a military state since 1994
    There is no doubt that Paul Kagame and his RPF Tutsi Rebels willed, fuelled and planed the 1994 Rwandan genocide and used it to maintain themselves on power and to enrich themselves only.
    Paul Kagame and his myth of so called “development” in Rwanda under his dictatorship. Very Ridiculous development indeed!
    Supporters of the serial killer Paul Kagame praise him for the same myth and fake “arsonist” type of so called “miraculous development” of Rwanda. Here is a list of those I can also call “pro-development” in any way like Paul Kagame is said to be:
    1. North Korea President is also “developing” his country
    2. Adolf Hitler too “developed” Germany and even the World!
    2. Idi Amin Dada too “developed” Uganda
    3. Gadhafi too “developed” Libya
    4. Charles Tylor too “developed” Liberia
    5. Yahya Jammeh too developed Gambia
    6. Laurent Gbagbo too “developed” Ivory Coast
    7. Mobutu Seseko “developed” Zaire
    8. Museveni too is “developing” Uganda
    9. Robert Mugabe is also “developing” Zimbabwe
    10. AL Bashir is also “developing” Sudan
    11. Saddam Hussein too “developed” Iraq
    12. El Sadat too is “developing” Syria like Kagame of Rwanda
    13. Osama Bin Laden too was a “developer!”
    14. ISIS too wants to “develop” its followers like Kagame Paul/RPF
    15. El Shabab too are “pro-development” in the same way like Paul Kagame
    16. Boko Haram too wants to “develop” Nigeria just like RPF/Kagame Paul of Rwanda
    Why should Paul Kagame be so special?????? What is behind the curtains is what we always talk about! Kagame Paul will always be remembered as the only serial killer, génocidaire, dictator, totalitarian, autocrat ,authoritarian ruthless ruler, who has been very much praised, rewarded, awarded and supported so heavily for killing so many millions of human beings with high impunity and immunity in the history of the whole world. I think his name should be put now in the “Guinness BOOK”
