THE United Party for National Development (UPND) has castigated Information and Broadcasting Services minister Chishimba Kambwili for describing UPND National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango as ‘ugly’.

UPND information and publicity chairman Charles Kakoma said the statement is a clear testimony that Kambwili is not sensitive to Gender.

“Honourable Kambwili forgot that he was addressing the Nation as a Minister of Information and Broadcasting and also as Government Chief Government Spokesperson who needed to consider government’s responsibility on Gender,” he said.

Mr Kakoma added; “From his bias statement it is clear that he was reacting to Ms Nalumango’s statement as a MAN who views women as objects hence his freedom to describe Ms Nalumango.”

“His language was Gender insensitive, discriminatory and bias in that he even said in Bemba ‘ Ba mama balya’ Immediately he mentioned the word ‘ba mama balya’ , I concluded that he chose to use those words because he was reacting to a woman meaning that if it was a Man, he could not have reacted.”

Mr Kakoma said that Kambwili seems so illiterate on Gender and before he embarrasses the nation on an international forum with his language, the women’s lobby needs to educate him on Gender.

‘So that he chooses inclusive language and use words that are gender neutral’
He also needs to be reminded that appointing women in decision making positions alone is not enough to meeting Gender Equality.

As a leader in a Christian Nation, Hon Kambwili needs to know that we are all created in the Image of God which possess humanity reflection, compassion, love, fellowship etc

Because everyone is created in the Image of God then all should be treated with proper respect and honour because they reflect God.

Saying he has a good heart was unfair to all including himself ,’Let him go and ask UNZA students whom he denied bursaries at first while grabbing the commonwealth Centre if at all they will agree and say he has a good heart.

Mr Kakoma concluded that Hon Kambwili should know that even the bible does not describe what the devil, satan or demons look like, the images we all imagine of Satan are inaccurate according to the bible.

    • I can’t even say it is the issue of a pot calling a kettle black. I believe Mrs Mutale Nalumango was beautiful when she was young like most of our mothers. Kambwili should show us his mothers pic then we can see. Mrs Nalumango could be age mates with Kambwili’s mother. But what we know for sure is that Kambwili has all his life been ugly and so it is an issue of wanting to make someone else feel the pinch that he has felt all his life.

    • Fact: Chishimba Kambwili is a Bemba
      Fact: Chishimba Kambwili is younger than Mutale Nalumango
      Fact: Chishimba Kambwili is shallow minded, and of low morals
      Fact: Chishimba Kambwili is ugly, and lacks respect for elders
      Fact: Mutale Nalumango is also ugly!

    • At times i wonder if it helps talking to the likes of Kabwili. ……. As Ndjaje Kahks quotes a known saying don’t argue with a phool …… but what should we do if the phool is a cabinet minister. In this situation, I totally agree with Charles Kakoma who is castigating the phool.

    • @ The Question is…

      In all fairness, “is Fat Albert endowed by mother nature with enough intelligence and political “savvy” to judge female beauty or to be Honorable Minister or Chief Government Spoke-person”?

      Let us agree on this answer first which will, in all fairness, automatically answer your question.

    • The indisputed fact is that both Kambwili and Nalumango are ugly.

      They say everyone was beautifully created in God’s image, well on these two I disagree.

  1. Do not argue with a phool because people wont see the difference. I support PF but I feel strongly that Kambwili is not the right person to have at national matter statement issuing department. Swap him with Vincent Mwale

    • Chillax! Kambwili didn’t exclude himself from the ugly talk. He said, and I quote, “Bantu bambi babipa imitima kwatima nipemenso. Fwe bambi twabipa pamenso but twali wamapo imitima” So he said he himself is ugly but that he has a good heart unlike Nalumango who has a bad heart as well as an ugly face.

    • Kambwili did not say he was handsome. Kambwili said that though he was ugly externally his heart was “handsome”. Facts are facts both Kambwili and Nalumango are ugly. But like they say in Zambia, an ugly man will look “handsome” as long as he has a deep pocket. Remember Kasonde who was at one time Finance Minister in the MMD government. Now there was Mr handsome for you.

  9. Kakoma what is your and upnd stand on Edgars illness? You must first castigate Nalumango for being evil unless its the wholesome position of upnd, but I know one HH wished ECL well, you and others who talk ill about. HE will be answered with the full force you deserve
    Give this govt the checks and balances and offer possible solutions, of course you will not be happy to find a bankrupt govt it will be very difficult to manage. As for HH put your solutions forward with openess, don’t be put off, the damage being done now will be very hard to reverse even by you elite guyz. Zambia needs you more now than later

  13. is kamwili really fit to be a minister of information and government chief spokes person. god forbid find some one else with a better diplomatic language not the baboon who doesnt know how tribalism has come about in zambia. saying one zambia one nation at every news hour is not fighting tribalism but fooling those tribes being sidelined like the tongas and others who are said to be tribalists and yet others practice it openly. everyday hh is being insulted just for pointing out the wrongs. its shameful, what country and where are we heading to. ma rubbish, come 2016 we vote wisely upnd and hh chabe for better zambia.

  14. i don’t understand why gender and agliness should be related or gender and kambwilis statement. yes kambili was wrong but not very wrong. since even him is agly. but to say the truth nalumango was wrong in the first place and Kambwili was just using the prince of “ububi pa bubi”(an aye for an aye).

  19. Chishimba Kambwili has no business being in government. He should have been immediately fired for his hateful, insensitive personal attack on Ms. Nalumango. Don’t we have a code of conduct given to our leaders for them to follow? He is as uncivilized as a kaponya. I’m surprised people on this forum are making such a big joke out of this instead of crying out against such unacceptable behavior.
