Wynter Kabimba speaking at the launch of the Rainbow Party

RAINBOW Party president Wynter Kabimba says he could not remain in the Patriotic Front (PF) and help president Edgar Lungu with campaigns because the party has allegedly lost the ideals on which it was established.

He also acknowledged having belonged to one of the camps while in PF but denied being arrogant.

“If you say so that I belonged to the cartel while in the PF, I would say yes if you want me to say that.”

“I joined the PF because I believed in its ideals and I believed in President Sata. After the death of President Sata, I no longer saw these ideals in the PF and the most honourable thing for me was to leave,” Mr Kabimba said.

“From this background, I could not support or help president Lungu’s campaigns or the PF,” he said.

“If you say so that I belonged to the cartel while in the PF, I would say yes if you want me to say that.”

Mr Kabimba, who is former PF secretary general, said this during the Radio Phoenix Let the People Talk radio programme.
He also said he has been vindicated from assertions that he was fighting for the PF leadership.

“The people who wanted to stand for PF presidency fought me out of the party and you saw them, 10 of them at the PF convention in Kabwe,” Mr Kabimba said.

“The PF was formed by Mr Sata and it took a lot of persuasion by him and Acting President Guy Scott for me to join the PF. I was attracted to the PF constitution and the programme of social development intended to uplift the life of ordinary Zambian,” he said.

Mr Kabimba said he later accepted the job in Cabinet after the late president persuaded him again to join government.

    • The best thing to have ever happened in the PF was your getting fired, and dismantling of your cartel.

      Fred MuMmembe is next, we’re going after him with full force after Jan 20th.

      Imagine how the PF would have been if this little twart was still SG.

    • Now that you are talking sir, were you three, the A Team of PF? If you were, why and how were you hounded out? Is that not a sign of weakness on you part? Guy Scott has weathered the storm against all
      adversties and he is still standing, for now atleast. People will be interested to know the inside story of the happenings during Sata’s ailing. People broke the law by keeping and incapacited president in State house and they are back on the podium campaigning as if nothing happened and you are there talking trash with them. If you are any worth than them explain things in depth and don’t just be saying the obviuos? For all I know you are just like them the only difference is that you are not with them for now. You guys are all law breakers until you explain certain events.

  4. Why are you talking now. Is it because the cartel gimmicks to put their puppet in the presidential race has failed? You tried to destroy PF so that your Rainbow party gets the people from there. You are still trying?

  5. Why were you persuaded ??it means you never believed in mr Sata’leadership style and you did participate in the sramble for power because you had already fallen out of the party’s favour.

  7. Kabimba you are a disapointment, a total disgrace, if u were a genuine member u would hav remained in PF, bt because all u wanted is the presidency even b4 sata’s death & ur cartel has lamentably failed & opt to form ur own political party. Ur party is going no where. U only hope to get members frm PF.Mm’mbe ill adviced u.u’ll only rule in 2099.

    • Wynter was fired because he thought he was nailed on to get into state house. Before Pres Sata was evacuated, he left the Instruments of Power with Wynter. Upon seing the presidents condition, Wynter was certain that Pres Sata was not going to return alive, so the chap started using the presidential motorcade and air fleet. When Pres Sata returned suddenly, Wynter was in Solwezi campaigning and was not on hand to welcome the Pres and hand back the Instruments as is the usual protocol. There was a period when Zambia had 2 presidents! That was why he was fired!

  8. Very principled man Kabimba is and I think it has become very clear that the man was a disciplinerian in PF. All those who made unnecessary noise were either fired or sidelined by the capable CEO, Mr. Kabimba. What we have now are just lumpens, all they are expert in is looting. Mind you this is just Wealth and it can take you no where. If you become rich remember to share with the under previlaged, but the crop we have in PF , the likes of Sikazwe, very much hungry to reap more and behave like they live in developed country and yet the majority of people are not having the required three meals per day. I am happy that Kabimba formed his own party and I am rest assured that come 2016, it will be another ball game. GO GO Kambimba.

  9. The first time Sata formed his political party, he was not ripe for the presidency them, hence his losses in several elections that followed, that built him to were he ended up as president of Zambia.

    Today Winter has formed a political party, this was on the backdrop of his failures while in the PF, his personal outlook and leadership style led to his fall out with most people within and outside pf, that is one on the things that will build him because he now knows where he went wrong and that will shape him to be a better leader.

    I can tell you now that the winter you knew is not the Winter that is there now, he has learnt his lessons the hard way and that should make him a better person.

    His decision not to contest the 2015 elections is also another sign of wisdom and maturity.

  10. HAS PF DELIVERED ON THEIR PROMISES? PF has been wasteful in their spending thereby subjecting Zambians to abject poverty. I ask the following: WAT IS IT THAT WE HAVE BENEFITED AS A NATION FROM JUDGE CHIKOPA’S COMMISSION? HOW MUCH WAS INCURRED ON JUDGE CHIKOPA? REMEMBER: IT IS THE ZAMBIAN PIPO THAT WERE FOOTING HIS BILL! CHIKOPA IS NOW VERY RICH. EDGAR LUNGU IS NEVER IN HIS 2 OFFICES AS HE IS CAMPAIGNING FOR HIMSELF. IS HE ON PAID LEAVE OR IS HE ON UNPAID LEAVE OR MAY BE HE HAS NOT SIGNED ANY LEAVE FORM AT ALL? WHERE IS MORALITY IN BEING PAID FOR NOT WORKING FOR YO MASTER? EDGAR AS OF NOW IS MOONLIGHTING; TRYING HIS LUCK TO SOLICIT FOR VOTES. SCOTT, U ARE AS MUCH ZAMBIAN AS I AM BUT U KAM FROM A RACE THAT IS MORE HONEST THAN MY RACE. CAN U PROVIDE HONEST ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS PLZ.

  11. SO you are saying that a party lost ideals in the three months you left the party? Look sir, no one liked you. You tried to play cards but they fell for someone who was not playing at all.

  12. Ba Kabimba, while in PF were you ever on record advising other members of the loss in direction of the party? I guess not because before your dismissal you never saw anything wrong with the direction the PF was taking. When you saw that Sata was sick you Kabimba started scheming how you would take over the party. Your first move was to get rid of GBM( the other person who had indicated that he wanted to stand as PF party president). When others saw through your plan they chucked you out. YOU DID NOT RESIGN. YOU WERE FIRED. YOU CAN NOT TALK ABOUT LOSS OF DIRECTION ONLY AFTER BEING FIRED.

  13. The most hated man in Zambia is now opening his red-lipped mouth. Sorry man, it is Edgar who was chosen before you were born. Leaders are ordained by God, Edgar is the chosen one. What is chosen on earth is chosen in heaven period.

  14. The only person to restore your any credibility (if you have any) is late Sata. Unfortunately its beyond human, Guy Scott is quiet, signifying truth is hard to come from you.
    Politically, you are finished Kabimba, try something else.

  15. You are right Kabimba. PF was founded only on one ideal. To make sata president. if you have other ideals in mind Mr Kabimba you will be lying. how do you keep such an ideal when someone you fought tooth and nail has dies in circumstances you yourself are implicated? PF has adopted another ideal. to make edgar Lungu president. since you are not in the equation you left. stop lying. there is no party with ideals. Zambians don’t buy ideals. they buy personalities. you they can not get even on zero or -10 %interest kaloba. you are just plain unsellable. you had an opportunity to get the pf presidency. you were clumsy!

  16. God speaks. He spoke to Sata to part company with Winter while he was alive. This battle Lungu has gone through would have been more than we have seen. God care a lot. Good riddance indeed.

  17. Kabimba enjoy your stay in the political oblivion. Pride will soon turn you into a zombie. To be honest to you , you are nothing on your own. It is Sata who made it possible for you to acquire the little recognition you have. Now that you have left PF, you will go back to old kawayawaya days and your insignificant party will soon fizzle out and obliterated from the paper it was registered on. Sata had tremendous trust in you but you were filled with unbridled pride and thought you were smarter than him. See where you are now. You are no better that Alex Muliokela and Ackim Ngosa. The humble one will soon be elevated. I mean Edgar Lungu. It is undisputed he is the next president. Kabimba if you are to criticise PF, critisise yourself first because you have admitted to have been a warlord.

  18. In fact President Sata did well to fire Kabimba because if he was still Secretary general, there would have been killings during the succession wrangles and PF would have been MORE DIVIDED than it has been before reconciliation because winter would not have accepted any one other than him to take over from Sata. Because of Sata’s good intelligence network he fired Kabimba just before he died and that helped to avoid BLOODSHED.

  20. @2.1 umuntu, THANKS. BUT PUT IT THIS WAY. THIS KABIMBA GUY IS EVIL. HE SAT ON THE CONSTITUTION JUST TO DISADVANTAGE MANY A PEOPLE TO DISADVANTAGE BUT HIS PERSONAL AGENDA. KABIMBA KNEW THAT ENACTING THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION QUICKLY WOULD HAVE PUT GUY SCOTT IN FAVOUR OF ALL PRESIDENTIAL ACTING POSITION WHENEVER SATA WAS NOT AVAILABLE, AND FINALLY IN A FULL PRESIDENTIAL POSITION. HENCE, THE SITTING ON IT. SECONDLY, HE PRIVATELY ENJOYED THE CONDEMNATION OF SATA FOR THE DELAY OF NEW CONSTITUTION AS A WAY OF HIM GAINING POPULARITY.

    • IT MAKES ME WONDER WHY GUY SCOTT HASN’T YET OR DID NOT COME TO READ BETWEEN KABIMBA’S LINES. WHEN KABIMBA WAS APPOINTED AS GENERAL SECRETARY FOR PF BY SATA, HE BROKE ALMOST ALL COMMUNICATION LINES WITH PF BRANCHES. BRANCHES AT HOME AND ABROAD AS WE HEAD CRIED FOR COMMUNICATION BUT TO NO AVAIL. THEY WERE HITTING KABIMBA’S BRICK WALL. IN FACT POLITICALLY, THINGS STOPPED MOVING IN PF BECAUSE KABIMBA WANTED TO BE FELT AND HE SUCCEEDED TO A GREAT EXTENT. SOME MEMBERS WERE SUSPENDED AND A FEW LOST THEIR JOBS. THE CHAP IS A SADIST. BUT GOD JEHOVAH IS GREAT. HE USED SATA TO REMOVE HIM TO PAVE WAY FOR A HUMBLE PERSON IN EL OR SAMPA (mind you Miles Sampa can still come back after EL) IN ORDER TO AVOID BLOODSHED IN PEACEFUL ZAMBIA.

    • BELIEVE IT OR NOT EDGAR LUNGU WAS APPOINTED FOR A SPIRITUAL REASON. HE IS THE NEXT CHOSEN PRESIDENT. IF KABIMBA DID NOT MESS AROUND WITH THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION, IT WOULD HAVE RIGHTLY BEEN GUY SCOTT OR AT LEAST SAMPA AS WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE TURN OF EVENTS. LOGICALLY, ECONOMICALLY AND POLITICALLY VOTING FOR HH IS A SHEER WASTE OF ENERGY (VOTES). WITH ‘2’ MPs IN PARLIAMENT HE CANNOT INFLUENCE CHANGE. THEREFORE, ECONOMICALLY, ZAMBIA WILL START NOSEDIVING. POLITICALLY HH’s REIGN TO POWER HAS A LOT OF POLITICAL DARK CORNERS JUST AS HIS WEALTH. I REPEAT EL IS GOD CHOSEN. HE IS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA.

    • SO, THOSE PEOPLE JOINING HH JUST DON’T HAVE FORESIGHT. AS HAS BEEN KNOWN IN ZAMBIA THE SO CALLED HIGHLY EDUCATED PEOPLE ARE IN FACT THE HIGHLY UNEDUCATED PEOPLE. VILLAGERS IN ZAMBIA ABLY ANALYSE SITUATIONS AND MAKE RIGHT AND INFORMED JUDGEMENTS. WHILE THE OTHER CAMP NIBA CHIMBWI FYE. THEIR MOST IMPORTANT THING IS JOB OPPORTUNITY IF YOU LOOK AT THOSE MOSTLY LOAFERS WHO HAVE JOINED AND ENDORSED HH.
