Nevers Mumba welcomes the new Chitimukulu

Headlines Nevers Mumba welcomes the new Chitimukulu

THE Bemba Traditional Council
THE Bemba Traditional Council

On behalf of the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) and on my on behalf, I wish to congratulate the Lubemba Council and the people of Lubemba on the successful selection of the new Chitimukulu of the Bemba people.

This singular act has demonstrated the Bemba royal establishment’s capacity to handle all matters of traditional protocol. An exercise they have done with ease for over 400 years. It is in this regard that we wish to advise the PF government to lay their hands off the succession process of all royal establishments.

We wish to condemn in the strongest sense the un healthy interference of the PF Party and government in the running of royal establishments. The forceful degazetting of Chief Mwamba, who today sits on the throne as Chitimukulu is most unfortunate. The forceful removal of Chief Nkula in Chinsali is also unacceptable.

We are however delighted that the Lubemba Council has prevailed and chosen for themselves the Paramount Chief. Congratulations.

Nevers Sekwila Mumba
MMD PARTY PRESIDENT

    • This is typical of a ‘Muntu’ syndrome indeed.Surely this Muntu is questioning- in which capacity Dr Mumba is speaking to the Lubemba Council?.Dr Mumba has written that:On behalf of MMD(being the MMD President) and indeed on his own behalf,he congratulates the Bashi Lubemba Council for having Presided over the Affairs of their Chitimukulu installation.This hatred some pipo have against Dr Mumba,will cause them look to be ‘Useful *****s’.

  1. Nevers you are very petty, why can’t you just congratulate the chitimukulu. For once say something about development and how you are going to change the lives of Zambians for the better. Your myopic view on politics is nauseating, what a LOSER!

  2. Illusionist Flabouyant Mumba political millage seeker. This time its Chipimo orHH. MMD ate for 20yrs. Nevers is here eat. Nothin else

    • Indeed shame…..
      Congrats ba Chitimukulu sosala… Now where does that leave the president?? Dethroned??
      In a democratic state- freedom overrides. Wisdom and respect for people is demanded….
      Chief Jumbe must be smiling at the turn of these events-is it folly?

      Nelson Mandela once observed; “As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself… Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.” ?

    • Sata got high blood pressure after hearing Sosala is the Chitimukulu… You can’t just go by insulting traditional rulers. Now its big task for GBM to campaign for Sata, best GBM can do is to join Nevers Mumba.

    • I hope this does not develop into bemba-bisa tribal war…. Nevers mumba & GBM as bembas vs Sata & luo as bisas..
      Good lucky, am watching from the fence as events unfold.

    • How has Chitimukulu improved the lives of his subjects or for that matter how has he contributed to the development of Zambia?

      These Royal nonsense doesn’t serve any purpose.

      Nevers is a bitter loser.

    • Nevers trying to appear relevant! He’s trying to justify the HUGE INCOME HE IS STILL RECEIVING FROM THE DIEING PARTY CALLED MMD!! This chap is uZeless indeed. What a failure, this man! Ever since he became so-called president of MMD, the party has been going down. This crook was the other day booed when he attempted to start politicking when he was given a chance to preach in a church! This chancer can do anything for money…..!

  3. I am failing to understand Mr Sata’s inteference in the traditional succession protocols. What are his interests? Has he been ill-advised by someone or he just wanted some specific person to assume the chieftancy? The Bembas have a very rich history regarding the selection of the Chitimukulu and I don’t think anyone can come and change it now by imposing strange procedures. This must be a good lesson to our overzealous politicians that some things you must learn to let go or else you end up embarrassing yourself. The Bembas believe that the Chitimukulu throne cannot in any way be compromised. They have stood their ground and created a standoff with Sata, something that could have been avoided had Sata been a listening president. MALIBU YAKUILOMBELA BA SATA. MWIKABWEKESHAPO NAKABILI…

  4. It’s becoming a norm now in Zambia, for one to be heard they have to mention either Sata or PF. I do not mean to say I like Sata/PF govt. nor PF’s interference in traditional matters but Mumba could have done well just to congratulate the Bashilubemba genuinely unlike what he has done.

    • @RBM, do you dispute the fact that there interference from Sata? Did Sata not brag about his actions, when he told off Chief Jumbe? Was this not the same Sata, who heavily criticized RB when he had a spat with Chieftainess Nkomeshya? Let’s be objective bane.

    • Dad, RBM is right and I support him. Mumba should have congratulated the traditional leaders in rightfully electing a chief whom tradition demands and deems fit to be the Paramount Chief.

      He should then have, in a separate statement, condemned even more sternly than he did the actions of the govt in interfering with chiefteincies

      So put those two in the same statement demeans the respect for the traditional council of the bembas and reeks of cheap politicking.

  5. Mumba wants to make a name out of nothing, he behaves like his Tonga friend the shepherd or Hungry Hyena.

    • Mfumu,please don’t be a ‘useful *****’.Dr Mumba has just advised your CNP Sata,that he should not interfere with systems that have existed even before he was born.Please advise yo ‘hero’ Sata not to take his misplaced ‘man of action’ deception everywhere.His so-called action was not needed in the Bemba Traditional Affairs,besides,he is not even Bemba,but Bisa from Tanzania.

    • Levies Matipa,why are you so dull.Please see beyond your nose,the mistakes your president Sata(n) is making to stop antagonising everybody and every established systems.This is not about Bemba support,but doing things in the right way befitting the Head of State and not having a Headless of State.

    • Levies Matipa, you never stop to amaze me, your Luanshya mentality still haunts me. You truly can see anything between the lines. Go and sleep.

  6. It will be interesting to read Sata’s response when he recovers from whatever has put him out of action. I can’t wait!

  7. Be clear on the name of the new paramount chief. Who are his/her parents to deserve the throne? We Ngonis know exactly who deserves it. Donnot talk in parables (amapinda) Vuka ndoda siyohlanganisa akudeni. A bemba ukawalala nthawi zonse na ufumu amaba.

  8. Nevers Mumba you have failed lamentably as a politician and I dont think you wil gain any political mileage by congratulating the bemba royal establishment for the installation of a new Chitimukulu.There is nothing wrong in the government’s interventon or removal of recognition of any chief if that chief went on tha seat using backdoor means.I believe one of these chiefs was rejected by his own people but refused to leave the palace until he was chased and he went to live a council guest house.If Sata was worong in removing the recogniton of any such chief the bembas would have protested.Since they did not protest it means they supported what Sata did.Who know may be the Bembas themseves asked Sata to do what he did.

  9. Mtipa,your Sata should be corrected in a way so that he should learn to respect the senior elders.Its a pity your PF leader lacks wisdom,however,we forgive him for his ignorance.Chief Jumbe finally has a smile on his face,because wisdom has way to justify our actions and congratulations to the bemba chief.

  10. A real supper is one who advises the person he supports when he goes wrong. A supporter who supports even the things he knows are wrong is a dangerous supporter. And the president has a lot of dangerous supporters as shown here. You are supposed not only to admit that someone is wrong here but also advise him apologize. Remember these are voters, and 2016 is fast approaching. This is free advice!!

  11. They even have silly names ati chief ´´munyongololo´´…..ke,ke,ke. Those old people are wizards and witches who have nothing to offer to Zambia´s development -every young Zambian knows that.They even get more money than a profesional.Surely,tell me what a chief can do which an elected leader can´t do?

    • Makaveli,I doubt if you really understand the meaning of development.If you can’t see the Chiefs contributing to the development of this country then am afraid we’re having wrong pipo as bloggers.We need chiefs in the process of the developmental equation.Mind you,most of the land as a factor of production is under Chiefs,even the rural population under Chiefs is much higher than town dwellers.Therefore understanding the role of Chiefs in national development is very important.That’s why you need a Smart President to utilize these Chiefs in development

    • Agreed…..We do not need Chiefs this AGE. Chiefs should concentrate on getting rid of witches and wizards in the villages. Guys from town would like to go back home and invest but not with those wizards arround.
      Please note. Zambia is a Republic. It is not a Chiefdom. We do not have subjects but CITIZENS! This Chief nonsense is a waste of money. It should be abolished like they did in Nigeria, Zimbabwe and many other civilised countries.

    • You are the one that is sill.y, So how did you come up with the name of Makaveli?? If not incalcated or inspired by an italian name?? YOU WHO IS ASHAMED OF YOUR OWN ROOTS, rather appropriately ONE WHO HAS NO IDEA OF WHERE HE HAILS FROM NOR KNOWS HIS ROOTS!!! You happen to live in the West I presume, thereare companies out there making a roaring business of investigating family trees, TV programmes such as “Who do you think you are”. Now who do you think is st.upid between yourself & all these people exploring their roots????

      Leave the Chiefs & we who appreciate our heritage alone!!!! Ne mfumu shesu wa umfwa!!

  12. Makaveli @ 13, I was just thinking of the same if at all we need chiefs in this era.
    Shimfumu @ 6, realise that its not good to disrespect a tribe becuase you don’t like one person from that tribe. To say a person “behaves like his Tonga friend the shepherd or Hungry Hyena” is’nt being civilised at all. When you disrespect people or say bad things behind people’s backs it says volumes about your character and your up bringing. You may just be expeosing yourself to the e-world that is not interesting in such things. Remember you will never know for sure who saw your mother’s nakedness to whom she danced for to concieve you…it could be that tonga neighbour , meaning tonga blood could be running in you for ever. Learn not hate, its the begining of civilisation and inner peace.

  13. I FEEL SORRY FOR DR. MUMBA, HE DOESN’T SEEM TO SEE HOW HE’S BEING USED BY MMD WHO WILL SOON THROW HIM OUT OF THE PARTY. THERE’S A DEVELOPING FACTION WITHIN MMD THAT IS WORKING WITH UPND TO GET HIM OUT. ONCE HE’S OUT THE NEW MMD PRESIDENT WILL MERGE WITH UPND TO FIGHT PF. THE WORDS FROM ANDREW REGARDING EASTERNERS UNITING ARE NOT ACCIDENTAL WITH CALLS NOT TO HAVE ANOTHER BEMBA PRESIDENT COME 2016. MUMBA IS BEING USED FOR NOW TO ADVANCE THE CAUSE OF MMD THE BANDA FAMILY ARE WORKING WITH H.H TO BRING THIS TO PASS THAT’S WHY THERE’S SOME MANY PEOPLE MOVING FROM MMD TO UPND BECAUSE RB FEELS BETRAYED BY MUMBA. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD RB CONDEMN DEFECTIONS FROM MMDT UPND?

    • Komonsense,many are the plans of man,but it’s God who brings them to pass.So as you said people with evil plans against Dr Mumba will not succeed,because NO WEAPON FORMED against Dr Mumba will prosper.Such people will fall into their own traps they lay for Dr Mumba.Believe you me.The battle is the Lord’s.

  14. Sosala is Sorcerer,he has dribbled Sata and won the blond of a woman bamuka mfwilwa banalebemba, Sata has remained salivating , srcatching his head and gnashing his tobacco and cannabis stained teeth.His mutototo he was supplied by Syvia Masebo and Chieftains Nkhomeshya will go to waste.

    • You have continuously keep posting this tasteless comment. We get it – this is the way your mind works. But please, refrain from boring everyone writing this claptrap again and again and again!

  15. When is this culture of politicizing everything by our politicians gonna come to an end, I mean Mumba couldn’t congratulate the Lubemba council of Bemba people without mentioning PF name really?

    • Mwiponta,in case you didn’t know,Politics simply means-Human Governance.That’s why you need morality when you deal with the lives of human beings.It’s unfortunate the PF under Sata and Kamimba,they’re promoting immoral politics.This simply means that the 10 Commandments Sata talked about was all BUFI.

  16. The culture of PHD is deep seated in the Zambian psyche. The sooner we exorcise it the quicker we will gallop towards a developed and united country. The immaturity of the politicians in this country of ours is alarming. They all are so petty and opportunistic and childish!

  17. In total defiance to Sata’s desires!!! This shows that the will of the people is stronger than PF desires. Learn a lesson Mr President and your PF that the will of the people will prevail over your selfish desires!!!

  18. Fact is Mr president keeps making mistakes everyday. This one will haunt him even after leaving office , as he is a simple subject of the paramount chief!!
