first_imgMusician Chama Fumba, alias Pilato, has been arrested for conduct likely to cause the breach of peace. Mr Fumba arrived at Lusaka Central Police station around 11:15 hours yesterday in the company of his lawyers, Marshal Mucende and Kabesha Mulilo ahead of interrogations.The song in question is a remix of the legendary Nashil Pischen Kazembe’s Aphiri Anabwela, but featuring Pilato’s lyrics which call President Lungu “a drunk,” among several other ‘insults’.He was questioned for close to an hour before a warn and caution statement was recorded from him and an arrest effected. Lusaka Province police chief Charity Katanga said Mr Fumba was charged with conduct likely to cause the breach of peace. “Yes, I can confirm that Fumba ,31, has been arrested and detained by police following summons issued to him, for now he would be detained in custody until he meets the bond conditions,” Ms Katanga said.Mr Fumba was detained in connection with the production of a song entitled, ALungu Anabwela, alleged to have defamed President Edgar Lungu and vexed some sections of the public.Fumba faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison or a fine if found guilty.https://youtu.be/-qrDQwKR1IYlast_img read more

Super Bowl 53: Rams RB Todd Gurley is 100 percent, coach Sean McVay says

first_imgRams coach Sean McVay is confident Todd Gurley will be 100 percent when the Rams face the Patriots in the Super Bowl. McVay provided an update on his running back Friday after the team held its final practice before Sunday’s game. He revealed Gurley is “feeling good” and he expects Gurley to “play a big role” against New England. Related News “He didn’t have that many touches, but he still played a good amount of snaps,” McVay said (via ESPN). “We just weren’t able to run it as much as we’d like to, because New Orleans did a nice job stopping us. Then, we were in some two-minute situations at the end of the game and the end of the half where you’re more inclined to throw it. He should be good.”When asked about his knee earlier this week, Gurley said, “I’m good.”The Rams are expected to have a completely healthy roster heading into the Super Bowl as there are no injury designations. Gurley, coming off a knee injury that caused him to miss the Rams’ final two regular-season games with inflammation, didn’t have many touches during the NFC championship game, causing some speculation as to whether he fully recovered from his injury.Gurley played 32 of the team’s 68 snaps, finishing with five touches for 13 total yards, including a 6-yard touchdown run against the Saints.
