Lusaka City Patriotic Front(PF) councilors have complained that Kabwata Member of Parliament GIVEN LUBINDA is frustrating implementation of developmental projects.

The councilors want party Secretary General Wynter KABIMBA to guide them on which Member of Parliament should be leader MP in the chamber.

The councilors have complained in a petition to Mr. KABIMBA signed by Lusaka Mayor Daniel Chisenga.

Mr. CHISENGA said that the councilors have observed that Mr. LUBINDA who is also Foreign Affairs Minister is misleading the party by championing causes aimed at bringing disunity in PF.

He said that the Kabwata MP is threatening Kabwata councilors and stifling crucial council chamber debates to satisfy his personal interest.

The councilors have cited instances where Mr. LUBINDA opposed a progressive motion aimed at expanding the boundaries of Lusaka to open up land for burial sites.

Mr. CHISENGA added that Mr. LUBINDA has objected the empowerment of the people of Kabwata by opposing the opening up of land in Kamwala area for creation of shops for allocation to the people.

He added that recently Councilor CHIKUTANO NKHOMA embarrassed the council in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and that Mr. LUBINDA opposed the councilor’s decision that Mr. NKHOMA be suspended.

On Friday, seven PF Lusaka Constituencies accused Mr. LUBINDA of betrayal and treachery and called for his expulsion.

And earlier this week Kabwata constituency PF officials petitioned the party authorities to take action on their MP.

Patriotic Front Secretary Wynter Kabimba recently gave a seven day ultimatum to Mr. Lubinda within which to exculpate himself on allegations of disloyalty to the party.

But Mr. Lubinda said that he has exculpated himself over his alleged collaborating with opposition UPND and MMD Members of Parliament to discredit some of PF’s decisions and policies.

  3. ba zambia namupena ine i cant understand this hatred politics so u are seeing a human being kabimba? anyway i cant blame u coz the level of education in zed is to low so we cant think logically welll we lack reasoning !!!!! shame

    • Speak for yourself you *****,if you lack something why do you have to generalise the situation? You are so stupid and ignorant your guardians should apologize to the nation for not raisng you in a good manner. 

  4. Watch this space!! This guy has a big name, could be beyond PF redemption. You play with Given is a negative and selfish way, you are digging your own grave.

  5. No sense Hon. Lubinda is a hard worker who shares the same VISION of our President of developing Zambia. Just say you want him out of the Party than creating such stories.:”>

  6. Sometimes winning by-elections takes more than liking an individual mp.Lubinda might think it will be an easy ride, but it wont be that easy.Pf is still popular in Lusaka.Thats one mistake mp`s who have had won the same seat on different party tickets make.Just ask Lukas phiri and Silvia Masebo.

  7. so the witch hunt continues…hmmm these Councillors..as a professional some of the accusations i find absolutely ridiculous..if an MP rejects expanding the boundaries of the city to accommodate a grave yard and questions the allocation of commercial plots then hes frustrating development?!hmmm politics of poverty and poverty in politics—Do not bare false witness against thy neighbour!!what a shame!!well God perceives all and he weighs the motives of men!!..

    • Say the truth n it will set u free. Every motion is debated then councillors vote. each councillor one vote. The above argument does not hold water becoz Hon Lubinda has one vote. 

    • my point eactly cos council meetings are held under ma standing committee ,with chair persons and vices and the MP will usually only be a member of these committees and not all of them-then theres is Full council where the MP is also just a member-he will vote once or perhaps maybe propose a motion and the other councilors will choose to or not to second that motion!everything is agreed upon…so i dont know what these vultures are saying or who they are trying to fool!!if anything all council decisions in theory will have to be ratified by the MLGH or expedited thru a special council and ratified in principle!eish ok politics is a dirty business..maybe hon.lubinda shud just bow out gracefully becoz personaly i wudnt want to be associated with PF which is turning out to be a nest of viper

  8. Why can’t this guy Lubinda resign to save some dignity. A peace of mind is better than money earned by embarrassing yourself. Am beginning to hate him now, save your face nigga

    • Resigning would not be a wise thing to do for Lubinda if he is innocent of these allegations. Let him just remain cool and let the people behind this sack him and thereafter he can take steps necessary such as legal action to clear his name. If he resigns it will be like an admission of guilt.

  9. Some thing sounds familiar! “developmental projects”! Anywhere where these is a by-election is sight, these words, especially development, start cropping up. As soon as the seat is won, the terms disappear just as quickly as the Sata, Guy Scott, and the ministers in their 4×4’s. What is left behind raised hopes destined for doom and a few “more money in your pockets”…

  10. As long as the Chief Monkey in statehouse is quiet, Kabimba can forget…. his small dogs will be after him. Watch this space. The only reason the are not after Scott is the know he has no chance of becoming president.

  11. The pf is not fit to be a ruling party.Party organisation is poor,the leading personalties are suspicious of each other and the president of the party is quiet presumably to let “democracy” prevail through expression of opinions by members while denying the opposition their rights.

  12. LT your headings these days are taking the zwd’s way – don’t copy from them – have your own way of writing headings – soon or later they will accuse you of being biased like the post and zwd

  13. All of a sudden accusations against Lubinda are coming from everywhere. It looks like they are well rehearsed, making it doubtful for most people to believe them. The first charges against Lubinda were made by Kabimba while he (Lubinda) was out of the country, sounds like a conspiracy.

  14. Can someone spell it out – what exactly has Lubinda done that is so treacherous? What information would he possibly pass to UPND that we dont know about? I really do not believe this is the right way to treat a senior member of the govt( foreign affairs minister for that matter). Imagin Hirrary Clinton being hounded by her ward officials and Obama keeping quite. The president should show leadership on this one.

  15. Of what shape and form is this very development they claim? Who was going to build it, and who was supposed to fund it what real value is it supposed to add to the general population?

  16. Some how I think there is some thing fishy about Given going by the growing opposition against him. Mind you its not the first time PF has been suspicious of him.This happened even before the gen. elections. It died down, but now it has resurfaced with more vigor. Probably they have gathered more evidence against him. This one is very tricky for Given.

  17. #17, I AGREE WITH. LT IS BETTER OFF ADOPTING THEIR OWN STYLE OF REPORTING COPYING ZWD WILL JUST ALIENATE THEM FROM THE READERSHIP. LT, DON’T COPY, HAVE YOUR OWN STYLE.

    • For your information ZWD is the msot visited site. Look at the comments, you get 40 for LT stories but hundreds on Watchdog. Just go to your Post malabishi and stop talking about ZWD which I am sure you have already visited.

  18. IF TULLY LUBINDA GIVEN HAS BEEN LEAKING INFORMATION TO HIS FORMER PARTY UPND THEN THE GUY DOESN’T APPRECIATE AT ALL. HE HAS BEEN GIVEN ONE OF THE HIGHEST POSITIONS IN THE GOVT- IT IS FOOLISH FOR HIM TO STILL CLING TO A REGIONAL PARTY. TOO BAD FOR HIM.

    • #22 & 24 What if he has not done what they are saying he has done? Besides he/she who alleges should prove. From the news in Zambia there is no such proof advanced against Given. So far he is innocent and he should keep quiet.

  19. If Given was not trustworthy HEMCS would not hve appointed him forein affairs minister or would have fired him by now. I think there are just people out there that want to discredit him coz he is da next presido

  20. Lubinda is probably the only rational voice in the PF. Kabimba has adopted Sata’s antics when he was in the MMD. The only crime Lubinda has committed is that is looks more of a presidential material than Kabimba. I can never say never, because I did say that about Sata many years ago, but Kabimba will not be the next president. I am sure this country has waken up from its aberration after putting Sata in the State House. What a country!

  21. we prove the following consultancy.

    political propanda
    manufacturing hollow promisses
    political intimidation
    ilimination of political enemies
    devide and rule tactics
    fool proof corruption activities

  22. 17 & 23..So calling something as it is is adopting a negative style? …If you’ve been following recent news you’ll see that several groups within PF have come out against Lubinda, the headline is fine, no bias in my opinion. Don’t forget this is a senior government official we are talking about, now even mere councilors are rushing to the press about this issue…more popcorn please!!! 

  23. SO, THEN IT MEANS ALL MPs MUST BE RECALLED. IF YOU TALK OF DEVELOPING OUR CONSTITUENCIES, THEY ARE THE SAME. ALL HAVE DONE LITTLE IN NON AT ALL.
    WHAT HAS NKANDU LUO, ETC, DONE FROM THE TIME WE VOTED FOR THEM?

  24. It is now very clear that all the dogs have been unleashed to get Lubinda at all costs. If I were Lubinda I would not worry as the whole nation can see what is happening.

  25. #29 I agree with you if its the issue of lack of development then lets recall all these dozing MP’s from parliament. Could it be Given is hated because he doesn’t seem to tolerate corruption? All these accusations sure I think they cant be true there is a STRONG FORCE which wants to see by ALL MEANS the back of Given Lubinda. Zambia’s politics sticks I regret having worsted my vote for people who are NOT offering us services BUT busy shooting at each other is that what we voted for you for? Nonsense!!

  26. There does seem to be a bigger conspiracy here. The more I get to hear about this Chisenga guy the more I get to loothe him. We gat us some thrash in that honourable office. Where’s Fisho Mwale, for God’s sake?

  27. This advice to you Mr. President MCS is very free and leave it at your own peril. To many outsiders such as myself, Hon Lubinda is the only person together with your Veep who are worth atleast some substance. They are the only viable future leaders for your party and should you choose to expel Lubinda because of your lack of foresight and amiable leadership qualities, believe me, your party will have dug its own grave. Going with the rate of transgressions in your party, it will be a miracle if you will finish this term without the people of Zambia rising in a revolt. A good leader steps back, examines his performance, concedes his failures, asks for forgiveness and then reloads in a new direction of hope. Your not compromising mood is a true recipe for your impending doom. WATCH OUT!!.

  28. #6, you think it’s only his ministers that he has failed to preside over, it’s the country as a whole. Nafilwa umukamba. Prices, depreciation, constitution, Awe nilekaleka

  29. I agree totally, this given should be booted out. Waterworks area does not have piped water bcoz he has been opposing council/LWSC from providing water bcoz he was not allocated a plot there!

  30. People are suffering bcoz of his selfishness and lack of sensitivity to his constituency. Same area, chalala, down Kasama road where he has built, immediately he became minister, the whole area was piped:

  31. Atase Basata landenipo,why this nonsense?otherwise I’m loosing interest in PF.ifyabupubafye.can u show leadership than letting this nonsense in da party.which development has Lubinda blocked?I stay in kabwata n govt has failed 2 tire zipas road.atase bane MMD atleast did smtg.why destroying hard working Mps(GBM,lubinda,Kambwili)?chi winter knows nothing.ici mu lenje chaonaula party.we’ll now support chipimo.fuuuuuuuuuuuu

  32. But basata nishani kanshi?kulwala.awe ine mwalapenya.can’t believe this nonsense 2 GBM,kambwili and Lubinda.why destroying people we love?chi winter knows nothing.bakalamba basata tumfweni before tamulasebana otherwise abantu baamba ukukalipa.

  33. These fools are behaving like verse-quoting lunatics! Picking incidents and adding context to suit their whims. It is not only hilarious but tragic, too. It is also an implication that meetings are designed to note renegades – meaning you are not even entitled to your opinion or position if you are in a minority!! Eish! Zed!!

  35. It’s better to have people who are wise than empty tins left to control government matters.why fighting within yoselves instead of looking at serious developmental matters and achieving the campaign promises.is Lubinda a threat can somebody tell me..power hungry in pf ba MCS control your ministers.

  36. if the gvn starts frustrating pipo in such a case, wat of pipo in areas who are only members of yo parties.This is a various case that the mp must b acuiteed. O this type of mp must b demoted. Thanks
