CHITAMBALA VISITS TAYALI IN DETENTION
“Someone using a fake page has been issuing statements against President Lungu cries Tayali”
The two are social-media rivals and have since sued each other in courts.
But following the incarceration of Chilufya Tayali for defamation of the President, Chitambala Mwewa known on social media as Simon Mwewa Lane, took time to visit the Economic and Equity Party (EEP) leader, Chilufya Tayali who is detained at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe in Avondale township.
Mwewa said Tayali even asked him to buy food for him and others detained in the Police cell.
“So earlier today I went to see Chilufya Tayali just to make sure he was where I thought he was.” Wrote Chitambala on his page.
“He was in custody at the time of this photograph and after we spoke for a few minutes he asked me if I could bring him and his cell mates some food.”
“Don’t bring fish because these guys might choke in here” he said.
“So I went to Chainda Market where I bought some fritter, Nshina beef and chicken.”
And Chitambala said Tayali said there is a fake Chilufya Tayali page with followers of about 42,000 and he has previously reported it to Facebook.
He said he has no access to his phone since he was detained last week.
He accepted that he was detained over his videos on his page on Facebook but he has not issued any statement after that.
Several screen shots have emerged stating;
“After everything I have done to PF, is this what Mr. Lungu you can do?” And;
“You can’t stop an idea whose time has come”.
But Tayali told Mwewa that he has had no access to his phone or social-media and advised his followers to go to his page with 291,000 followers.
Tayali is expected to appear in the Lusaka Magistrate court on Tuesday.
