Headlines Chief Kanongesha throws weight behind Maureen for presidency

Senior Chief Kanongesha of the Lunda people in Mwinilunga district in North Western province says he is ready to support the candidature of the First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa if she is adopted as a presidential candidate.

Speaking to Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in an interview today Senior Chief Kanongesha said the First Lady has all the qualities to lead the nation.

“I am ready to support the First Lady if she is going to be floated as the presidential candidate because of the qualities she possess,” Chief Kanongesha said.

The traditional ruler noted that the First Lady had proved to the nation that she was capable of leading the nation from the manner she has handled local and international matters.

“She has proved to the nation that she is a capable leader to lead this nation from the manner she has handled International matters pertaining to the welfare of the Zambian people,” he said.

Senior Chief Kanongesha said Mrs Mwanawasa has always put the nation first each time she travels abroad by ensuring that investment is attracted into the country.

“Truly she needs to be given a chance to lead this nation from the qualities and personality that she has displayed,” Senior Chief Kanongesha said.

The traditional leader told ZANIS that Mrs Mwanawasa was not just a First Lady but a leader who has proved herself in the manner she has managed the Maureen Mwanawasa community Initiative.

Meanwhile, senior Chief Kanongesha has called on government to consider looking into the plight of the chief returners countrywide.

Senior Chief Kanongesha said he has made an observation on the condition of the chief returners adding that there is need to improve their welfare and condition of living.

He noted that most of the government workers have their condition of services improved while forgetting the chief returners.

Senior Chief Kanongesha suggested that an office should be created at national level which while address the plight of the chief returners countrywide.

  1. There we go again, Lawyers at it again. This is a pure and simple THIRD TERM incarnate rally call from Mwanawasa’s bootlickers. And dont be fooled LPM is behind this. How smart LPM, then you guarantee nobody touches you for your sins after 2011. I doubt you will pull off this one with your MMD machinery. But who knows, am sure you will put a clause in your NCC driven constitution that only a woman under 65 to stand for the president of Zambia in the name of sex equality. Twachula pa zed

  2. There is no doubt the first lady has qualities to lead Zambia and if we where to be totally honest with ourselves them we are forced to admit that but… we need a new government, new faces and new ideas.

  3. MMD is MBULI KELEFA started bribing illiterate chiefs for seek of Chuchu’s wife campaign for the presidency. TWAKANA TWAKANA!!

  4. another midnight wake up call.at least sata warned us that this woman has political ambitions thru MMCI.she should cme out in the and tel the nation like chituwo,mulongoti,shikapwasha have done instead of hoodwinking chiefs in a selfish agenda to prolong and sustain the mwanawasa dynasty.the donor community should desist from sponsoring MMCI until she clarifies her political intentions otherwise she will be having undue advantage over other political players.

  5. If the Mrs chuchu has got morals she should first leave the plot 1 and then start from the branch so that pipo know her as Maureen not as first lady. She should built her politic career from outside plot 1 with no govn machinery to help her. Hillary Clinton left the white house 8 yrs ago and her seek for the high office is based purely on what she has built up on her own not through her hubby.

  6. #5 ‘UMUKULU TAPUSA KEBO APUSA AKABWE’ When Sata was telling us that MMCI is a political ambitions we all thought it is from a dying horse lips.

  7. Kanshi where did this nonsense of “mrs cabbage for president” start from? Those throwing their light weights behind her are just doing so for their own selfish motives: to win favours from LPM. What competencies does she have? A secretary who went to UNZA as a mature to do Law and only graduated because she was a favoured vice president’s wife (not becoz she was intelligent).The only thing she is know for is her vindictiveness and nepotism; only her relatives occupy cabinet and diplomatic posts

  8. # 1 Chanda Phiri THIRD TERM indeed. Same strategy as silly FTJ’s 3rd Term campaign. Chiefs, DA’s, Kandile’s singing the 3rd term song.I understand chiefs have been given vehicles by GRZ, “TIMELY”!! Oasis furom where are you?

  9. Let Maureen go for the presidency, there is nothing wrong. After all she has the right as a Zambian. But then when she does Hubby Mwanawasa will end up with the Thabo Mbeki embarassment. Maureen may have the qualities but she is coming at a wrong time and using a corrupt route.

  10. Lets just welcome anyone who wanna occupy plot one.Ooh yea:How many people wanna be president in Zambia?Am now failing to count.
    Who ever has reasonable qualities welcome as long as they are clean ones.

  11. IF THE FIRST LADY DOES NOT LIKE THIS IDEA, WHY CAN SHE SPEAK OUT TO AVOID HER NAME BEING SHOT AT. TO ME, THIS IS NOT DIFFERENT FROM THE THIRD TREM DEBATE WHEREBY CHILUBA SAID LET THE PIPO DEBATE, MAENWHILE, HE HAD GIVEN SOME CHIEFS & PASTERS BRIBES TO CHAMPION THE DEBATE. THE FIRST LADY NEED TO BE SINCERE ON THIS ONE, LET HER ADVISORS TELL HER THE TRUTH & LET HER NOT BE BLINDED BY POWER, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN SWEET!

  12. NO third term to the mwanawasas,levy is trying to reincantate himself through maureen.By the way can somebody clear my mind, who is the current president between the two.I feel maureen has been ruling indirect and know she feels that the apointed time to come out of her mask has come.Please MMD leave our peaceful country as it is. You have failed us for 15 solid years, what else do you want prove?.what do you have for ama sample,is it the people?

  13. Although it is not always that an aspiring leader has a truck record. For those advocating for Maureen to become the 1st citizen of Zambia may you educate us on, what qualities, accomplishments, her global and african economical educations & understanding, and if at all her own vision for mother zambia?

  14. Ohhh not again! Somebody pliz help us! Calls for Maureen to become the next president of MMD are not only stupid but foolish. How about those men and women who have worked so hard for the party? Does it mean that the entire MMD has no better material other than that from the family tree. Zambians lets awake and ensure that we bring these calls to a halt. Zambia is not and will never ever be a kantemba for the Mwanawasas. NO WAYS

  15. Maureen for president, banee, politics in Zambia has gone bonkers full round. This talk has to be the only thing stinkier than Chiluba’s third term bid. Its about time Zambians started shooting fools to stop such pathetic rot

  16. No WAMUYAYA,NO THIRD TERM INDIRECTLY THROUGH YOUR WIFE(MAUREEN) LEVY MWANAWASA. TWAKANA!!!!!

    OUR POOR CHIEF NKOMESHYA, WHAT HAS MAUREEN DONE, APART FROM RUNNING
    MMCI WHICH IS NOT DIFFERENT FROM HOPE FOUNDATION.

    THESE ARE WHAT WE CALL POLITICS OF THE STAMACH…CHIEF NKOMESHYA, SORRY 4 YOU.

  17. Madam Chuchu be reminded that Zambia is not a dynasty or monarch to be lead by monkeys in the same tree. If the chief think otherwise can you seriuosly convince us as to why we should painfully go that route. Very disappointed with our mediocre chiefs.

  18. It is unfornate that the chiefdom in Zambia is being used as campaign managers for state house. It was Chief Nabwalya now it is chief Kanongesha. Tommorrow it will be another chief. I want to state that for as long as the house of chiefs is compromised into being used for political gains by politicians, I can vehemently suggest that we do away with that institution. Periodically, the value and functions of chiefs have eroded to an extent where most of them only look to monetary gains. SAD.

  19. I even tald our Church members one day that Mwanawasa will pick the wife for the presidence.Here he is. Honestly even if we are looking for a female president can Maureen be the one? Mwanawasa is the most corrupt person I have ever known and he is the one planning all this. This is not only nosense but corruption of the highest degree that Muareen will use his first lady previlage to become the president.Where has chief Nkomeshya put her reasoning? She must be the dullest cheif I have ever known

  20. People of Zambia let us mount up pressure on Mwanawasa to stop this. We need to think big. This is not a Mwanawasa kingdom where once he leaves the wife should take over. What has Maureen done for the people of Zambia? Mwanawasa should openly come out and tell Zambians that he is the one planning this. As we did with FTJ third term saga, we are going to deal with Mwanawasa. Zambians shouldnt be taken for kidding. There people who have laboured for Zambia who deserves to the president not Maureen

  21. Hey,we cannot afford to allow maureen rule this nation for 15 yrs..we know that shes the one whos been ruling in these 9yrs.Let us give chance to other pipo with new ideas and great Vision for Zed pipo..ViVa king Cobra paZed .. let Chuchu and his entire tree rest in peace.

    Twachula pafula

  22. Yes you are right #25. Infact MMD means Maureen Mwanawasa Dectetorship. She has run Zambia for 10 years puting in frant Mwanawasa as a scare craw. Not again. Wajaila umambala.

  23. I saw it come when Mwanawasa asked Prof. Chirwa to start as Branch Chair. Likewise, I expect Mwanawasa to extend that piece of advice to Maureen. Politics of trickery must come to the end. The people of Zambia cannot sink that low to allow a hand over from husband to wife, NO NO. Look as a nation we need a revolutionary approach to development be it politically, economically or socially. We need a think tank in the leader and not the chuchus, lawyers enriching fellow lawyers and family tree.

  24. This is insane. Bane, we may need to outsource the presidency to foreigners if the pool to choose from is only filled with Maureens and King Kobras.

  25. Chuchu dynasty indeed, after his wife it will be his son/daughter to rule us. Shamu Shamuna. If at all its the woman presdo we are looking for lets go for dear Inonge Mbikusita, who is got brilliant ideas and the charism to lead this country to high than this dull woman current at the plot 1 with to Ambi pamenso.

  26. Who gives such illiterates so much coversage? I would go for a town vote counting twice more than a rural vote. Imagine a chap like this poor chief chief determining my future, all for a few pieces of silver or a pack of Shake Shake!

  27. Na papapta please GOD HELP US NOW!!!! howcome when other people say they want plot no1, Levy gets angree!! Look at what happend in Kenya, is that what Zambia wants! No third term in any crooky way! I think that use has vibanda; anyone who lives there wants to stay for good why? KK = 27, Chiluba wanted a 3rd term and now you know who wants more time! Levy and maureen get a life and get out when your time is up! I ALSO WANT TO BE PRESIDENT!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Who said that every first lady should be involved in politics and organise charitable organisations? For 6 years now staying in SA, i have only seen President Mbeki’s wife once on TV. She is quite and a respectable woman indeed.

  29. The Post has become a state machineray, has anyone noticed that? Ive posted many letters explaining why it is not ideal for Maureen to stand, and a lot more why Zambia needs the Chirwa calibre kind of leaders, none of them has been published. Only letters and statements for Maureen are making headlines. This nonesence started after the Mwanawasa and family xmas holiday in Nfuwe where Malupenga was also invited. Shortly after there was a long editorial comment full of nothing but his praises.

  30. Dont worry or care about Molongoti, Chituwo and Shikapwasha’s fake presidential aspirations. MMD and state house including these three had already long agreed on Maureen and the three have been given a task to deceive people. To show as if there’s democracy in MMD. These are the biggest boot leakers, how can they Challenge LPM’s wife?

  31. To borrow Mwanawasa’s own words, Zambia is not short of leaders to be lead by the same family for 20years. With due respect to Maureen, not now bamayo, we need a revolution in Zambia that will face the current global challenges, someone with vast international experience and an Industrial led development approach. Its much more than HIV AIDS talks that we need. You would do very well as community development minister. We dont want the foreign-investor-savoiur kind of economic policies.

  32. She will lose all the dignity she earned under Chuchu. Let her be floated and MMD is heading for resounding defeat. This time Zambians wont accept vote rigging.
    Soon or later you will hear more illiterate chiefs especially those from North Western Province and a few in Central province singing songs for Maureen to be adopted. She will experience first defeat at the convention if she stands for party elections unless LPM wants to do a Chiluba wake through the night.

  33. Why is it that every name that came up besides Maureen was told to go to the branch level or to shut up as it was not time to disclose intentions? Spokesmen for MMD even threatened stern disciplinary action and the President had warned others that it was going to be him, and only him to anoint his successor. Alas, neither has the President nor MMD officials have raised a voice against this “nonsense” and it is somehow interesting! Which way Zambia? Who said Prof Chirwa was not qualified?

  34. Mwebo ba Chief Kanongesha just shut up and concentrate on your village business. Its so surprising that when our chiefs taste sugared food and “cooking oiled relish” they get excited and would love that trend to continue. BOXED TYPE MENTALITY. WAMUYAYAYA THINKING is long gone. When our time comes lets relinquish power and move on with other things and by doing that we will gain respect. Remember FTJ and the 3rd term. History repeats itself. POWER IS REALLY SWEET. Maureen tell us your intentions

  35. The Machinery to dig Maureen’s past dealing will start grinding, LPM don’t put your family through these paces my friend. We are tired of past presidents and families being insulted and paraded. We need dignity and peace in our counrty. Your family has done a considerable pride for Zambia and it is time you started packing and go home. carry your Wife along. We dont want her in State house as resident when you vacate. Let us see what she will be after 5 years out of Plot 1. MP wud b a good start

  36. PLIZ LEVY AND WIFE, CUD U WATER DOWN THIS UNNECESSARY DEBATE, WE DON’T NEED COZ I THINK ZAMBIA HAS BETTER THINKS TO THINK ABOUT. eg, THE FLOODS, POWER OUTAGES, UNEMPLOYMENT TO MENTION BUT A FEW. I KNOW IF THE FIRST LAGY SAYS STOP TO THIS CALL, ALL BOOTLICKERS WILL STOP MAKING NOISE – BUT WHY SHE CAN’T, I DON’T UNDERSTAND. I WOULD BE CORRECT TO THINK SHE IS INTERSTED IN THE NOISE. I ADVISE HER TO LEAVE STATE HOUSE WHEN SHE STIL HAS VALUE COZ THIS DEBATE CAN MAKE THE FIRST FAMILY LOSS VALUE.

  37. THE WISEMEN FROM THE EAST ADVISE ALL ‘VISITORS’ TO LAEVE BEFORE THEY ARE ASKED TO LEAVE, THE FIRST FAMILY IS EQUALLY VISITING STATE HOUSE AND AS SUCH THEY ARE NO EXCEPTIONAL TO THE ADVISE. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT!

  38. Kuku where are you we are in shit! Someone has silent Sata now we have Maureen Mwanawasa Dictatorship called MMD. What is all these? If someone leadership qualities regards of her gender she has to lead us. On the othe hand Zambians why should you worry about pronouncement of a candidate, yet you are the ones who vote. All you need is access the leaders who want to govt. If they qualify let the govern. On LPM he has already said he if Zambia was monarch he would have appointed the next leader.

  39. Kuku
    What is contained in 1970 Finance Charter? The court wants the information. Remember some of us we had not seen the light by the then we need to know.

  40. #2 Iwe we kakota ka 83 can you line up what qualities has maureen got to want lead Zambia pipo apart from quality of motherly which most zedian women got.

  41. Family business is that what Zambia s about to become?????No way, after Maureen you will here that one of Her Daughters should become president.NO NO NO, this should not happen at all, we need change.We are tired of MMD.

  42. Ha ha ha ha, you see Vera Tembo understands politics better than our learned colleague. She started off nicely as a branch official up to when she was adopted. By the way what happened to Hope Foundation which had so much goodwill when she was in state house. Is MMCI likely to go the same way, bootlickers.

  43. which party is going to adopt her?? lets be serious comrades,the lady is a political novice and Zambians will never allow it.Who started these foolish rumours anyway?? Someone gave the example of Hillary Clinton…she spent 8 years in the Senate before aspiring for presidency…may i suggest two terms in Parliament before we can even consider her for Plot 1.

  44. Even in parliament she might not make a grade, you know we think politics is for the illiterate, ladies and gentlemen, politics are supposed to be strategists, we let our laws be deliberated on by men who barely understand anything, like the late Chawinga (MHSRIP)

  45. Maureen is a jocker, a ram shackle of the worst kind! who said she can rule Zed? let her come out in the open and let Elephant Munshumfwa be consistent by telling her to start from the branch level. twapapata mwitonawila ichalo chesu, twakulile mubulanda, inshita yakubwelela uko mwafumine ngayafika kuyafye. And you LPM why don’t you want to go out with respect? advise your wife pantu tukesamilonga muchifungo pamo nabakashi. twakana ukutekwa na bakolwe bakuchimuti chimochine. Viva new monkey!!!

  46. Why is Vera a Minister? Zambian politics are not serious!! Now lady presidency after Levy? Joking are you??

    Zambians wake up, look around and see who is doing your foreign affairs.

    Levy please put Zambian needs forward, leave the likes of Vera and all aside. They have the goods now, let them enjoy them, but we need to feed the Zambia children from the grass roots.

  47. Ha you guys unfortunately they way the system works once the Boss ‘sleeps’ with the intelligence community which has been heavily politicised then lets forget Maureen angena (she is coming) shame on the system!!

  48. #52 The original Pundit, Its the MMD! A comment from one journalist about George Bush and the race to white house! “There is a job free in USA that of the president. The current president has done a very bad job that for the first time a black man and a woman are runing for presidency. Is this the case of Zambia. What will be legacy of the new deal govt? Corruption fight, Power outaged caused by a lizard, Blackout the whole nation, No transmission of Africa of Nation by ZNBC, Floods though natur

  49. # 56 you mean Kaingu Pande to be the right person for president!! I think Brian Chituwo can be the best candidate for MMD.

  50. Ukutumpa fye uku ba Maureen.
    We want change. If MMD can find a credible person other than those from the family tree, the party can rule after 2011.
    Mrs Chuchu kuti atamfya abalume nga akwata ama presidential powers. She will be too busy to find time yakukumuna amalenda!

  51. Good leader left politics at the right time a good example is Mwalimu Julius Nyerere of Tanzania. He did even had house to live in where he left power but the state built one for him. Politics is a dirty game and it can have hard consquences. Clever people like Tony Baire have gone before water started boiling.

  52. Zambian Politics is funny zona. In fact Plot 1 Yalipwalala ichachine fye. The next president of MMD will be an academic outsider because MMD does not have leaders right now. I’m sure Dr levy will appoint himself as the next president!!

  53. comrades,reign in your emotions…Bana Chipo is leaving Plot1 at the same time as LPM !! Lets start dissecting the more probable candidates instead of wasting time on the non-starter issue of Maureen taking over.
    So far the MMD names thrown around:Chituwo,Magande,Jacob Mwanza,Mwanamwambwa,Fundanga,Pande,HH(by correspondence from UPND)lets focus on these?

  54. Maureen for President!!!I think that is not a very bad idea,however,I am not really convinced that she has the leadership qualities to rule the nation.MMCI is a small entity for one to make a conclusion that because they have performed well in a small entity,therefore they can perform the same at national level…A country is a more complex entity to run.

    Right now,I don’t think at the moment Zambia has a capable leader in all the political parties around…

  55. KenZEE(65),FTJ thought the same and dug into the archives and pulled out LPM !!LPM is best advised to follow suit and “think outside of the box” he just has to be sure it someone the convention will agree to.

  56. Sitting Presidents potentially can stir havoc for a nation. Look at kind of damage Mwai Kibaki has caused in Kenya. He new that he was losing and rigged the elections in his favour (CNN, BBC January 2008). This exactly what Mwanawasa and Co are cooking for Zambia. He is already rigging elections within the party(pre-MMD convention aspirations) by strategy of exclusivenes in favour of his wife. He will see the ramifications.

  57. KACHEPA says: Mrs Chuchu is determined to go back to plot1 if MMD blocks her, she will transform her MMCI (which is full of benamisweshi) into a political party and bring out another family tree.

  58. #68, tell your kachepa to go easy on that “stuff”.Hallucination is a symptom of an overdose!!Please don’t tell me even you believe the “Bana Chipo for President” nonsense ??!!

  59. Ba Maureen, mwimona kwati Zambia ka ntemba kaba Mwanawasa. Ichindikeni mayo.Mwimona kwati abantu balitumpa pakumipelo umuchinshi.Ngamulefwaya umuchushi from bena Zambia,balapela.Lelo nga mulefwaya ukusalulwa, ala bakamisalula.Nobe chi chief Kanongesha chakumushi we chikote chankantu namano ayakota, finshi ifyo umwene muli bana Muwelewele? Aka aka kote bane, nakeshiba ati kalefwa any time nomba kalefwaya fwebaiche tuchule. Bachief mwasanguka ba mwadya mweka DADY.This senseles.Think Big chi chief

  60. You know what mwebena Zedi? Mwanawasa wants to hand over to NaChipo. next, it will be naChipo handing over to Chipo, next it will be chipo saying she will hand over to her unborn child. NaChipo wesu, ndiye vichani ivi vamene wayamba? Waona kuti ka Ntemba kako ka MMCI bakatasha kuli bakandile bako ukuti nabena Zedi bonse tizakutasha. Alaa, mwayamba madimbiko. Ndiyekudimbika uku kwamene abemba akuti “ukubuta”. Zambia is not for madimbiko, kadimbikileni kutali bashi Chipo nabana Chipo.NOSENSE.

  61. Well said guys. No need to repeat what you all have said, considering Anonymous is voicing same sentiments. What a change of heart there. Mualeen must not take us for fools, least for a ride.

  62. No disrespect intended to these small chiefs, but I think they need to have more dignity than they are currently displaying. You will never hear of chiefs with clout like The Litunga or Chiti Mukulu making such petty and shallow comments. A leader of a state-supported NGO to become president? We are not short of leaders in Zambia. Let her start from branch level.

  63. Wow, I have a question. Does it mean when Maureen becomes the prsident, Muwelewele will form his Levy Patric Mwanawasa State Council Community Initiative (LPMSCCI) insteady of the current one MMCI. Aaa ati maloza bati. Mwayamba kutidyesa vimbombo vakapenta manje.

  64. Women!!!Hang on to your husbands whenever Maureen is around.She run away with my husband when she was his secretary at the time.Is Darlington Mwape going to be the First Gentleman?

  65. Yaba, here we go again. whatever that chief said did not say it out of his common sense. why would he talk about Maureen standing if Maureen herself is quiet?
    brights minds have already said it, Maureen doesn’t need to say that she wants to stand, she should wait until her husband leaves that chair, then build up her own career. Ati qualities and accomplishments!? have i been blind olo nichani? what qualities and which accomplishments? that cheif should mind what he says no matter the price.

  66. let Maureen stand for MMD presidency and let the elections in MMD be fair, and then they will see that people are not bluffing, I don’t think she is going anywhere, full stop.

  67. Mwaiche Pragmatist
    Quit this game you`re playing of misleading Levy by floating Maureen`s name as a way of cementing the Mwanawasa family tree.
    Levy has just realised that the fight against corruption has gone beyond his control and will work against him after 2011.He desperately wants a sure bet to cover up his dirty little secrets such as the Katumbi saga.

  68. FELLOW ZAMBIANS, WE HAVE OURSELVES TO BLAME? IF BA VERA, THE KAPONYA FROM CB (WEBBY CHIPILI)AND THE LIKES ARE ABLE TO REPRESENT US IN PARLIAMENT, ANYBODY IS FREE TO CONTEST FOR PRESIDENCY? THE OTHER PROBLEM IS THAT WE SIMPLY TALK AND DO NOT ACT? REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED IN KABWE WHEN KAFUPI ADOPTED THE LATE PAUL TEMBO AS OPPOSED TO CAPT CHEWE? THAT IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO IF LPM NOMINATES HIS WIFE? VIVA MOB JUSTICE.

  69. WATS GUD PIPO HOPE YA’LL DOING GOOD…. MWANAWASA, MAUREEN I RESPECT YA…..WHY IS DAT YA PIPO ARE RAISING YA VOICES(OSAIMYA TUMIKOSI KWATI NKHANGA)MAUREEN AM WITH YA….YA PIPO MUST KNOW DAT DIS IS DEMOCRACY MWANAWASA IS PRESIDENT NOT MAUREEN SO IF SHE MAKES MOST OF THA DECISION DATS NOT YA BIZ OK…IF YA THINK DAT YA GAT DE GATS TO STAND FOR PRESIDENT GO FOR IT SHE IS FREE TO STAND AS PRESIDENT IF YA DON’T LIKE IT DEN I DONT KNOW WAT I CAN DO FOR YA COZ ITS YA PIPO WHO VOTE AND YA VOTE COUNTS.

  70. ATA SE IWE #84 KANTANKAMANINE UKO? WABUKA MUTULO NAHANGOVER YA KACHASU WAKULOMBA. MAUREEN PANSE AND TO DULL TO BE PRESDO OF MY COUNTRY.

  71. Chief Kanongesha has the right to support Maureen if Levy and Maureen have been good to him. Why should he support those whom he does not know? But the truth is that we don’t need a Maureen Mwanawasa for presidency. If we need a lady, let us go for Inonge or Sylvia as some others have already suggested. But Prof Chirwa should be allowed to rum. He has what it takes to lead our nation. The BOZ governor should be allowed to run if he is interested.

  72. #ZULU 83

    You say Maureen has qualities? Who has more qualities between Maureen and Dr.Inonge Mbikusita-Lewanika? The only reason bootlickers are talking about Maureen is because she is the first lady. period. I swear my balls Maureen has no presidential qualities…

  73. #86 You are forgiven. #87 Inonge or Silvia, I will for Inonge. Hey pipo!!! how about Mister speaker Sir for the presidency!!!

  74. Yaba! Kuti waseka. Maureen gives a 50pin to the chief, and the chief gets excited.
    Chuchu muwelewele has failed to beam afcon matches, the whole nation is in blackouts, petrol will be 10pin this year, and then u give his wife to rule? hahahaha.
    let her dump her ugly face at teka farms…period!

  75. I hope mwanawasa wont start rounding up pastors and chiefs to support his wife like the way Ftj did in his quest for the 3rd term were some shameless pastors turned state house into churh saying Ftj was appointed by God ,so he should get another term.

  76. Hooo it is so cold here but I am enjoying how Zambians can debate on presidential issues. I don`t see why most Zabian politicians are afraid of interllectuals like Mr Chirwa to lead the country when they always cry for Zambians abroad to think of where they have come from.
    On Maureen, please my siter don`t be fooled you will be both spiritually and mentally brused if you follow politics.
    You said that you are just married to a politician. which means you are not political.

  77. The true measure of a working democracy is free,fair and equal participation in the precess.Thus anyone who qualifies and meets the requirements is free to contest any position they desire. It is up to us the electorate to elect or not elect anyone. Why all the fuss over Chirwa, Maureen etc?

  78. Well, traditionally when kids mumble in their learning carves under some guaranteed free speech, as responsible parents we don’t inhibit their passion to rant. Your exhibited hysteria, MMDophobia & ignorance seen here over the first lady is typical of your hopeless zest too scared of the MMD at every turn even when there is nothing.

  79. I implore Brother M’membe to run the reactionary press statement script given to his paper by the so called Mususu. It’s now three days since we last saw the draft story on the server why not run it for public eyes? Kindly place it in the front page for public critic then we will take responsibility to help him out of his “irrational atavistic hatred” breeding those expressions of hysteria and persisting unbridled ignorance.

  80. Be ware of paranoid bigots with their MMDophobia when eye MMD plans it off the front pages. They thrive on pure ignorance, baseless rumors, self deceit, and misrepresentation their entire uninformed mind. They are counterfeits of scrupulous attitude in the civil societies that refuse to recognize moral principles and boundaries.They represent a dangerous move to reverse human progress and return to the age of outright day dreaming with hot air when the Grand game plan is under safe and lock.

  81. The time has come for the world to undertake a profound shift in political thinking and practice, similar to the one achieved in other modern times democracies. Successful democracies and free nations came to life when the feudal system that thrived on rumors was rejected and replaced with a system based on political, Gender equality, choice and the rule of law.

  82. A democratic and free Zambia is here with us to be nurtured because past political dreamers of such rabid segregationists that perpetuated political and economic disenfranchisements against verifiable- Zambian citizens with membership in their Parties based on Gender is replaced with one in which all are equally treated under party constitutions, international law, and have fairly equal access to aspire for any office. The panic seen over any MMD silence proves the crisis in the opposition. If

  83. If indeed MMD is unelectable in 2011, why the hysteria over rumors amongst the likes of Mususu a counterfeit NGO representative and some political vagabonds here???? Doesn’t it become a matter of cerebration if the rumor hold???

  84. #100, Whoever said MMD is unelectable needs a lecture in so called African democracy. If Maureen becomes the MMD’s presidential candidate, what will stop the state machinery from being used to give her undue advantage over other candidates? Even if she loses, the OP will rig the elections and declare her a winner. Just like it happened in Kenya. Zambians should take this maureen-for-president threat very seriously; dont be caught napping, the muweleweles are out to dupe us. Be forewarned

  85. LPM couldn’t influence MMD to reject Katele Kalumba for the position of national secretary what makes you think he can convince them to adopt his wife???Bana Chipo wouldn’t be so foolish as to form a party to rival MMD either.Come on Zambians lets scour the political jungle for LPM’s replacement and forget about these shallow minded suggestions of Bana Chipo taking over!!

  86. dont forget that during the Katele’s national secretary elections, there was no family tree, so it was difficult for LPM to block that. Now most MMDs who hold government positions are from the family tree (including Maureen’s). For them to continue with their lucrative lifestyles, they’ll do anything to have wife replace husband. I always wondered why LPM was so stubbon on the constition making process when he knew he was leaving anyway and why he castigated Prof. Chirwa. Now we know why.

  87. If the post newspaper was not on chilubas case, he too would have bought the chiefs solopi and vitenges and they would endorse him.
    The goverment needs to insure that the next in line to all the chiefs thrones in zambia recive a good education.
    At least they can then endorse candidates for the benifit of the country, cos now any thief can give them solopi and a $10 watch and you have their support.

  88. hell noooooooooo!!!!!!! can someone tell me am having a nightmare and this will be over when i wake up.oh my God am awake,what is this country going to,to the dogs? Power is always sweet, you have had your share please give chance to others.

  89. HEY! at no time did she state she wanted to stand! it was people like the chief who suggested her name and the press picked it up to sale… there is always two sides two a coin…intellegent people “usually” think of the different possibilites to everything…even this story could be treated in the same vain…historians, journalists..even you-could be familiar of the word “BIAST.” who is writing this article? how far can we believe everything in it? awe sure…mwe bena zambia… i will never understand-any way-now that the whole thing has been cleared up….Mrs Maureen Kakubo Mwanawasa is not standing for presidency-you can all breathe… give the woman a break-napapata!
