FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE.

To MY PRESIDENT, His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu, I say thank you for this opportunity to serve you and the Zambian people. I will not let you down sir.

To my fellow ministers and PF leaders, my hat off and I celebrate you all for your care from the day when we lost HEMCS (mhsrip).

To the Information and Media fraternity in Zambia I say just because am an aggressive leader does not mean I’m irrational or senseless, it is my way of executing my duties. I am a hands on and a time based leader and I demand the job be done to the best of one’s ability.

Contrary to the image that has been painted of me in the past I gracefully accept the challenge from HE to sanitise the media industry and to bring back peace to our great nation.

I am for freedom of media, expression and freedom of speech, but I will not tolerate hate speech, tribalism or anyone that poses a threat to national security.

Let us all work together in peace and harmony fellow Zambians.

To you my family, I need your support in my duties. After the swearing in ceremony I had no time to celebrate, eat or sleep I went straight to work and launched the world radio days scheduled for tomorrow 13th February. I am not here to play, but  rather to get the job done, I look forward to working with all media houses for the good of our country.

As Chief Government Spokesperson it is my duty to act as the Middle man between my government and you the people of this great nation, I will travel the length and breadth of this country letting the Zambians know about our economic progress and developmental projects.

I will leave my Stamp and mark in the same way I did at Youth and Sport. And to my esteemed colleagues back at the ministry, may I say it was a great pleasure working with you for 3 solid years, thank you for your hard work. To my new team lets get straight to work.

AND to the men and women in the PF Youth Academy, ?#?Team7500? from the ?#?Akuna_KULAMBWAZA? institute of Edgar Chagwa style, I give you big Hugs. Ooooh you are very wonderful and special greetings from the man Himself, HEECL. You have a lot to do for the Patriotic Front and, but FEAR NOT, and do not be intimidated. I am CK.

Watch this space for Media revival in ZAMBIA !

    • Kambwili at the helm of media coverage! I’m sure when Edgar Lungu dissolved cabinet some “cobwebs” were overwhelming in the mouth for being mute & only bootlicking.
      The microphones will suffer from abuse of one Kambwili. Everyone will be hoed.

    • Yes Kambwili, thank Kaminamisa Lungu for your job because without that job, you will not survive. You like all these other hungry, useless, desperate politicians are willing to do whatever it takes to secure a job even if it means hurling threats or insults at those opposing your paymaster.

      Even if pa Zambia ni pa 3rd world, we should not depend on politics for survival

    • What a lose canon this man is. There was no need for this statement. It appears he was worried he wouldn’t be employed as.

      If I was te president I would certainly want him in my cabinet but goodness can he be annoying.

      Thanks

    • TOO MUCH UNPROFESSIONAL JOURNALISM IN ZAMBIA. TOO MUCH CHILDISH MEDIA SITES, IT IS TIME TO CLEAN UP SOME OF THESE IFISOSO. THE FACT THAT ALMOST EVERYONE COMPLAINING ABOUT KAMBWILI MAKES HIM FIT FOR A CLEAN UP. WE CANT HAVE MEDIA HOUSES ISSUING INUENDOS AND INSULTS AGAINST THE HEAD

    • Kambwili be warned that, any one who has picked a fight with ZWD, has never won. Sata him self your idol failed dismally after spending millions with the chinese. Some of your colleagues who tried ended up apologising.

      If you feel you have now grown balls of steel, please try and bring it on so that your files can be released for public consumption.

      Remember where ever you are with your tuma galu friends, ZWD is there too.

      Any action to disappoint your galu friends, they easily turn to ZWD for solace.

      So I wish you all the best in your fight with ZWD.

      I can’t wait to read about the drama which will unfold.

    • This is very very childish, this is not ministerial quality. Iddi Amin incarnate . Tukasebana mu Zambia.

      What mark did he leave at youth and Sports ministry apart from insulting FIFA officials and failing to win the CAF TOURNAMENT hosting bid. Self delusion of the highest order , 1 millimeter from madness. Muliokela can do better

    • Ba Kambwili, your statements and rantings show pomposity of the highest order.

      If you are not careful bwana, at the speed you are travelling ,you will be the first to crash out of Lungu ‘s cabinet.

      Bola, pashi, ba kambwili.Media can either build you or completely destroy you, more especially the online media.

    • It appears to me that this guy did not anticipate that he would bounce back into cabinet. He appears to have been spending sleepless nights waiting for the announcement, like one who has just writen exams and is waiting for results.

      I must say Mr Kambwili overrates himself so highly, that is why he messes himself so badly. I see him messing himself big time at ministry of information. This will ultimately lead to his dismissal.

  2. This is the lowest caliber of a minister who has ever held this portfolio. How do you hire a minister of information someone who is a terrible communicator. Just how do you make such a one your spokesperson? I mean this is a graduate of copperstone university. He graduated without ever writing an assignment or attending class. And this is the person who is supposed to unite the country when every other word that comes from his mouth is insulting people who don’t think like him or have a name that does not look like his. You really think Kambwili in deep down his heart is going to spend his energy 100% to bring something positive to this country? Instead he is going to use his portfolio to fight his enemies. Zambian leaders are jokers.

    • Agree with you 100% on this one. Kambwili is not at all suited for this position. They should have put someone sober, calm, and wise, with a lot experience in the civil service. Kambwili is rude, uncouth and lacks foresight. He talks without thinking about the consequences.
      Maybe that’s the plan here, that he should mess up and get fired. Good riddance maybe??? I don’t know but I know he can’t be tamed.

    • It is worrying when Kambwili says he will leave his stamp just like he did at Youth and Sport. This is the man who laughed when the UNZA student committed suicide, was annoyed when Coach Janza wasn’t happy about the Chipolopolo boys being late getting their match! Is that the stamp we want. A stamp that is so mediocre.
      This man was very worried that he would not be given a job. The letter he has written to EL is proof.
      Your Excellency, Kambwili is not ministerial material. Caution him please or Zambia will be embarrassed.

    • Kambwili has been strategically placed ladies and gentlemen. Being a known bully his role is to intimidate media houses and reporters alike. It should not come as a surprise if a directive will be given that his ministry will have to clear all news before releasing it to the public. Any media house that will share with the public any news unfavorable of the head of state and/or governance in general will be in for a rude shock! Opposition parties must kiss goodbye to access and favorable coverage by both print and electronic media.

  4. Kambwili will deface PF beyond recognition. And deform the cuntries international image.

    We need a minister that has the nerve to allow the zed popi barking
    and member continue his editorials.

    We negative and positive media but the new CHAP at this ministry is full of CRAP

    • We need negative and postive news becaause We have the capacity to tell when muvi tv runs paid news .

      Kambwili lacks the intelectual capacity to understand the world around him.

      And its very unfair to expect good judgement from him.

      All media men must call this day BLAK THURSDAY

  5. It would be lauphable had it not been that these people get paid from our hard earned income. So this CK has recorded progress at the Ministry of Youths and Sports…somehow have missed the progress. I note youth unemployment, politicising youths and the general decay of youth standing in Zambia.

    Now the Ministry of information and technology is supposed to be our gateway into ICT world and modern best practices, but this guy the way he talks he clearly means PF propaganda.

    Zambians when are you going to understand that your destiny is in jeopardy!?

  6. The tongue can set the nation on fire if unchecked. It is not good to fight innocent people perceived to have different views from yours. God is watching. One day one will cry for being overzealous for nothing. God will undo what some humans do without regard to His wishes.
    The media need freedom to air out views in support and against govt.

  7. Just a Brown Shirt, leading a Propaganda ministry.
    At least Big K appears to have some insight, as hes fully aware of his Uncouth abrasive manner, & nature.
    ATI “I left my stamp Ku sports ministry” Delays & disorganisation dispatching Chipolopolo for important crucial games.
    Mediocrity has well & truly prevailed!!

  8. Mr PROPAGANDA is off and running. Can’t wait for the next election cycle. With Kambwili as ECL information minister the opposition will have a rich collection of comedic errors from which to launch a formidable case against the PF. He is already marking is dictatorial stamp. He thinks he can close down ZWD.lol To you mr PROPAGANDA I say “BRING IT”

  10. Kambwili is one of the most hard working and people centred ministers. He has confessed he that he comes out rough but I like his frankness and hands on approach to issues. Hate speech, racism and tribalism should be criminalized. He calls a spade a spade and I applaud him for that. Like Oral once said no monument has ever been erected for armchair critics. Men of action will always take their place in history.

  19. To pick someone who is provocative, and as he has rightly described himself, senseless and irrational is simply bad choice. Mr Kambili erroneously equates compulsive strong talk with performance. But the truth is that his talk tend to be imprudent, uncouth and excessively immature. This ministry is too sensitive for his calibre. He is good for a cadre not for an executive office.

    I bet he will be on every microphone he finds, and without deep thought commenting on every issue thereby creating a substandard image of govt and the country to the world.Just look at this piece of statement he has published. Looks like it was Authored by an excited college kid who has just landed his first job. He says he will travel everywhere to explain govt activities. Do we need that? Extra gvt…

  20. THE APPOINTMENT OF KAMBWILI TO MINISTETR OF INFORMATION &BROADCASTING SERVICES IS A GOOD MOVE AS THE MAN’S PERSONALITY IS IN THE GROUP OF EXTREME RADICAL. RADUCALS ARE GOOD IN TIMES OF CRISIS WHEN EVERY ONE IS AFRAID TO TAKE A CERTAIN COURSE OF ACTION A RADICAL JUST GOES A HEAD AND ACTS. THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF RADFICALS IS THAT THEY ALWAYS DEAL WITH THE SITUATION FIRST ABD THINK LATER. THAT WHY THEY USEFUL IN CRISISES. KAMNWILI WILL BE USEFUL IN TIMES OF CRISIS IN PF.

  21. Why didn’t he give someone to write for him than producing this piece of useless statement.

    Kambwili get an educated secretary to write you readable and intelligent documents. I’m afraid what I have read above is not acceptable from a minister and government spokesman for that matter.

    • What did you expect from a mere kaponya? The man is not ministerial material. It is really a tragedy that Zambia can have such low calibre of ministers in the 21st century. The current crop of ministers is so inferior that it cannot be compared to first Zambian cabinet of 1964.

  27. These are crutial times for PF and requires someone with a push with a bit of intimidation. I think with that in mind , he could be the rightful person. However, he is advised to keep at the back of his mind that Zambia is a democratic country and every one must be given chance to air their views, without which it becomes a simmering pot on fire, only ready to blow when opened.
