FORMER Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Ronnie Shikapwasha has apologised to President Sata for the harm he caused him when he was in charge of the ministry and during the September 20 tripartite election campaigns.

Gen Shikapwasha told Parliament on Tuesday politicians called each other names and spoke many injurious words against each other before and during the campaigns. “At this point I want to render unreserved apology to his Excellency Michael Chilufya Sata for the injurious words that I spoke against him. I apologise wholeheartedly,” he said.

Gen Shikapwasha said it is important to respect authority because leadership comes from God. He said God has given President Sata to Zambians and he should be respected.
Gen Shikapwasha also apologised to United Party for National Development (UPND) Hakainde Hichilema for many injurious words he spoke against him.

“I apologise to you, Mr Hichilema, for the many injurious words I spoke to you, some of them parroted,” he said. Gen Shikapwasha, who is also Kembe member of Parliament (MMD), said prayers must continue in Zambia so that there is no witch-hunting to ensure that reconciliation is promoted.

He thanked Merdado Cardinal Mazombwe for his reconciliatory remarks at Saint Ignatius Catholic church last Sunday. Gen Shikapwasha said it is important that the nation reconciles and starts on a new chapter.

And contributing to the President’s speech, Gen Shikapwasha said the speech left out important issues such as the mine taxes, national security and Zambia’s Christian nation status.

And Lieutenant General Shikapwasha has said government did not follow the right procedure when appointing the director general of the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC).

He said the ZNBC Act demands that the position of the national broadcaster’s director general should be advertised, which Government failed to do. “The appointment for ZNBC’s DG was single-sourced and did not give many Zambians an opportunity to compete,” Gen Shikapwasha said.

Bangweulu MP Chifita Matafwali (PF) said it is gratifying to note that President Sata has recognised the need to undertake a review of the Farmer Input Support Programme with a view to establishing whether it is achieving its intended purpose.

Lukulu East MP Christopher Kalila (MMD) said the inclusion of the mother and child health to the Ministry of Community Development will have a negative effect in achieving the Millennium Development Goals on health.

“It is just the same as creating another Ministry of Health because it will lead to the duplication of what the Ministry of Health has been doing regarding mother and child health, which will have a negative impact in attaining the goals on health,” Dr Kalila said.

  1. This man is looking for a gig. This man has a business at longacres. When he came to order meat,he wanted the bone cut out on steak on bone,Remove all fat from T-bone steak. The head block man would say,it wasn’t me who told you not to save when you were in government. He got another shot in the last government. Hope he saved and improved his business,Mambala uyu.

  2. Disingenuous apology , if Sata had not won would such words ever even be uttered i wonder. It’s funny how people that fall fom grace somehow want to feast on humble ma bunz(not pie) all of a sudden. 

  3. What took you so long bigest mambala? Mwenze ku malilo? Apology rejected with the all contempt for an apology lacking sincerity. Please first forgive yourself before you ask others to forgive you.

    This man was full of taking the Lords name in vain when tearing apart political oponents. I have no sympathy for such imbe=ciles whose only god is their ever hungry belly.

  4. Umwneso Ba General. What are you scared of ? Just as well Zambia never went to war during this guys tenure as Air Force Commander ! These are the officers who would jump off the jet chute to save their behinds instead of fighting for the people. Good riddance- Gavin Lubinda is a feel of fresh air !!

  5. Kalila’s observation mkes a lot f sense, did Zondwe consult when he was making these silly changes?

  6. Please! How embarassing for this old clown, but we all know this is not genuine. These guys were just too much during the campaign period and this is too little too late. No wonder this guy went into the bush during the Capt. Solo coup attempt.

  7. what a clown of a man …today you want to use the word God in vain in your speach and when in Gov you failed to do so , just always agree with what rb says ..clown , just become a bush DJ like you skinny son in the usa

  8. Spot on Shikapwasha, they’re taking Dora to task on single sourcing while the ZNBC Director General and other positions were single sourced, chiwamina galu!!

    • Fellow Zambians….listen…for once please…..this guy ‘CHIMONA’ needs to be punished real good together with all his buddies who have looted Govt. money, and I repeat…Govt. Money…why…becoz that is our money, we the people of Zambia pay into it through taxes and levies and therefore as Zambians local or abroad need to think of how many lives have been lost due to having stupid crooks like Shikapwasha and them. They stole Zambian money and therefore we need it back quick in fact before HE Pres. Sata forgives him. Dora Siliya should be given to starving inmates at Mukobeko and Chimbokaila prisons….am sure they will feast on her pretty good. Until next time Zambia…Hope is on the Way…in Sata I finally can feel hopeful again.

  9. It’s good to apologise and respect those in Authority. The General is right to apologise because this is what it should be done especially when you are wrong. But if the General is solisting for a Job, then i have a very big problem with him. We have been having people changing tones of their voices just because they want jobs. I think this is unacceptable. We need people to check on what the Government is doing and having everyone jostling for Jobs in PF Government. First it was Kavindele and Katele now it is Shikapwasha. This is shocking.

  10. What of apologie to the catholic church? Wat repentance to God almighty for bringing his name in ridicule. God is listening.

  11. Shikapwasha, you are shameless. If I was Sata and HH, I would reject you apology with contempt it deserve. You must also apologize to the Catholic Church for linking them to the genocide activities.

  12. Wise observation Dr Kalila,ve noted with sorrow, Satana’s lapses in governance.The quack is headed for landslide failure if he does heed such free advices ; anyhow,what can one expect from COBRA worthy his vernom.

  13. #Impono 
    “It’s like a face grew out of a nose” 

    Pipo can make you laugh yo lungs out.
    You are forgiven, but when we come for you soon, you should payback what you might have taken from Zedians

  14. ba shikapwasha nomba na apology yatampa,no more ruphia in state house,its macheal angel chilufya sata.ukosefye mudala shikapwasha,if your hand’s are clean you have no problem with angel micheal and the PF graze.

  15. Angel micheal will forgive you because he is the child of God but he don’t what corrupt people wapya baisa ba  angel micheal.

  16. This is totally unacceptable now, let us learn to respect others regardless of their social or political status. As a a person who claims to be a man of  God, Shikapwasha must have known better that palatable language is uncalled for and there should be no justification for such nonsense. With or without campaigns, it is totally wrong to use abuse language as it does not build anything but destroys. Don’t be scared of anything, there is no witch hunt and if you crossed the line, the law shall surely visit you in the days of your life. Calling for reconciliation now after you have no job, you are a big joke general! Even God will not accept apologies after judgement! You better repent now Shikapwasha!

  17. THATS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE, AFTER ELECTION COMPETITION PRODUCES A LEADER THE LOSERS SHOULD HUMBLY CONCEED DEFEAT AND GIVE RESPECT TO THE ELECTED,BUT MR SATA NEED A LOT OF CHECKING DUE TO HIS SUBSTARNDARD LEADERSHIP IN A FEW DAYS HE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE. LETS PUT ENOUGH PRESSURE ON HIM TO DELIVER ON HIS COMPAIGN PROMISES AND STOP HIM FROM TRIBLE APPOINTMENTS EVEN WHEN THE PERSON BEING APPOINTED IS SYNONMOURS TO CORRUPTION

  18. This man is just a job seeker. Do you think he would have apologized if MMD was still in power? Pathetic, you are embarrassing your children.

  19. I listened to the apology on Parliament Radio and I found it genuine. I am among those who were really nauseated by this General and alleged man of God, but what more should we ask for, he apologised and should accept his apology.

  20. If MMD had won he would have carried on with his insults. What man of God?

    Him and Nevers Mumba are just parasites hiding behind the owrd of God.

  21. Ba Rev,Lt General, how could you have sank that low just to put bread on your table you ended up compromising your integrity. You don’t deserve forgiveness from man but God himself. STUPID MAN

  22. Nothing lasts forever. You thought You would be in government forever. Even when Levi died you couldn’t learn that no one swallowed a stone that they can’t die. You have sobered up now.

  23. If you told the truth you don’t apologise. If you lied then you do. The Post has never apologised about what it used to write about Sata.

  24. If rily Shikapwasha z a man of God wy wuld he insult! Bufifye he rily meant it so Mr Presdo dnt accept hz apology coz its F.A.K.E.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;)

  25. To those in the current government, please note that you will not be in government forever so make sure you tame your tongues and avoid using uncivil language to your opponents. You’ll end up looking foolish by making apologies which will be rejected with the contempt they deserve. There is no way frog-nose wiould have apologized had MMD gone through.

  26. Why even apologize to this mere mortal.Has he ever apologized for all the lies he told just to get elected? He said RB was a foreigner,he lied there were Zim cops in zed to rig elections and he has beaten a hasty retreat on the Chinese in zed after realizing he’d bit more than he could chew.The man is an embarrassment to zed.

  27. It took Lt.General Shikapwasha the infamous appointment of Emmanuel Mwamba and the embrassing u-turn of Xavier Chungu’s appointment to apologise to the President. Perhaps he’s thinking if the President could appoint such people why not him? It’s a pity most of the apologies and defections from the opposition are nothing, but for appeasement. If I were Pres I would accept as many apologies/defections as possible and that’s where it would end – no rewards, appointments or any recognition. If RB retained power all this eccentric behaviour from disgraced politicians would not have been there would it? 

  28. BUT SHIKAPWASHA YOU ARE A FOOL, AS OLD AS YOU ARE WITH THAT BIG NOSE. NOW YOU LOOK FOOLISH KA FAKE REV. WERE IS YOUR FRIEND CHANDA CHIMBWI. YOU WERE NOT EVEN ASHAMED TO BRING YOUR EVIL BIG NOSE ON THE SCREEN ALMOST EVERY DAY INSULTING THE PRESIDENT. WERE YOU NOT TOLD BY YOUR WIFE THAT YOUR NOSE IS JUST TOO BIG TO BE DISPLAYED ON ZNBC TV

  29. We call ourselves a Christian nation yet we cannot accept a simple apology??? No wonder Jesus Christ asked whoever had not sinned to cast a stone at the woman. We all have sinned and God forgives us and remembers our sins NO MORE. For those in doubt read Hebrews 10vs 17

  30. Ci Shikapwasha ulicipuba sana. The hour of reckoning has come for you. You thought you will never leave government. We cipuba ca muntu iwe. You even have the guts to mention the name of God. You embecile.You deserve to be in a zoo as the most stupid man on earth. We cinangwa iwe.

  31. I am sure Ronnie will soon be part of thei PF govt. Who is better between Ronnie and Chungu? the debate can go on, but HE has shown that he can appoint people of questionable standing like Mwamba, why not Ronnie? This is the sad part of our leaders they seem not to understand what we want us the general populus. God save us from these people takingover govt again just changing from one party to the other as long as it is ruling i.e. from UNIP to MMD now to PF. This is far from the change we wanted, pls HE President Sata stop these appointments and not following the law. We want to discuss progress and not regression.

  32. u are now changing from being reverend of the devil to ……………. i have to ask mulongoti whether yo apology is genuine or not

  33. SATA IS NOW OUR SAVIOUR IN THIS COUNTRY. WE GOT TIRED WITH MMD AND RUPIAL BWA BAND. SHAME WERE EVER YOU ARE MMD. IT TAKES A LESSION FOR MINISTER IN MMD TO START REPENTING ONE BY ONE. WERE ARE REMENING WITH DORA TO APOLOGISE. SHE USED Z MMD PARTY TO EXPOSE HER BEHAVOUR, .
    PF LEARN FROM THE MMD MISTAKES THEY MADE COSE THEY THOUGHT ZAMBIA IS IN THEIR HAND. PF GO, GO, GO WANTING FOR MORE MONEY AND JOBS.

  34. Shikapwasha,RB,Late Tetamashimba ,Tandiwe,Dora Siliya,George Kunda and others were not practicing politics but Hatred.They must be checked.This man should even apologize to churches for his Vulger language.If RB won, i bet he’d not apologize.His own mouth is …..him.
    Mulongoti was the same before his fate in MMD

  35. does it mean that apology is only renderd to people on top say for instance the president what of an ordinary cadre,are there classes where you need to apologise to or what

  36. Has his apology been accepted or not? No one has so far said so. Leaders in Africa seem to be conscious of nothing not even their soroundings. Only when they are kicked out of power do they realise that they live on earth and not somewhere between earth and heaven. Bro Ronnies, too late!!

  37. Apology or no apology if he comitted a crime he should face the law. But then what we now see is that all thugs are regrouping and joining PF. The clincher is: Xavier masterminder of curruption being pardoned by the almighty Sata. Lets seat back and try to enjoy this painful 5 yr ride to a miserable future.

  38. The grass is always greener on the other side.
    You’ll back to soliciting  for mealie meal money from former colleagues at the filling stations as you never learn…god is great rev!!!

  39. GREAT PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO SAY AM SORRY… WHO EVER HAS NOT LIED OR SINNED…LET HIM BE THE FIRST TO THROW A STONE AT THE REV GENERAL. OTHERWISE, HE HAS DONE HIS PART YOUR PART AND MY PART IS TO FORGIVE.

  40. Am happy that shikapwasha apologised . Lets just enjoy the drama of the cobra as it unfolds. The man has committed alot blunders in the few days he has been office

  41. It is always good when people put up their hands and say sorry. However, we will have elections every five years and bye-elections all the time. Are we always going to insult people and then appologise afterwards? Adults must behave properly and conduct issue-based campaigns. Instead of which MMD practically labelled Sata gay. We remember George Kunda repeating this everywhere he went. The other thing I must dispute is the reverends assertion that leaders are appointed by God and that they must therefore be respected. Leaders are appointed by the people and must therefore not take people for granted. I remember the reverend always telling people to respect President Banda. No! These people are paid well enough. They must learn to take the rough with the smooth.

  42. YOU ARE INDEED A GENERAL, NO MORE AMMUNITION TO PROTECT YOURSELF, NO MEN IN COMBAT, THE LAST OPTION IS TO SURRENDER OR DEFECT! WELCOME ABOARD MU BWATOOO!

  43. life is dynamic, just smart ppl Obama can work with H. Clinton Coz there campaign is issue based, how embarrasing is it to think u can not lose power one day? GOD can not be mocked!!

  44. Although it is never too late to apologise, the position of a Reverend demands for integrity in speech and actions. You were supposed to be an example to young christians who aspire for political office by practising clean politics. However, you were such a big shame not only as a Reverend but also as a Lt General Pilot (former ZAF commander). Go and even apologise to the Church so that nobody emulates your past.

  45. Ronnie, u ar just as fake as other pente pastors. Why didnt you appologise when you where stil in govt ? And as a man of God why did you resort to the ungodly way ?

  46. Our God is the God of endless mercies. Gen, you are truly a man of God who is not ashamed to come in truth like you have done.  God bless you. Ignore the critics.

  47. Very few pipo say sorry when they are wrong Gen you are true man of God if it is trutly coming from your heart then appology accepted many have not asked for forgiveness. Let us reconcile with one another and move on

  48. Yaba ba shikapwasha an evil reverand, what has changed kanshi? I new that you were and you are a false rev. Just accept that RB your God is gone for ever and never to return. Also know that you have 5 years solid to be a back seater……..all the best as you mourn.

  49. Rb would have said,’Yamunyokolanjala mambaala.’Those days ,ke,ke,ke,ke,ke!PF ,DON’T GIVE THEM-MMD SPACE. Chi Sata chaume. Ukutuleta tumwamba apepi ,’ngefi nitumuselelakwakaba ‘they will release more data that will lead to the cry of some mmd criminals.Mwamba tell us how ka lazo was killed.
