CHIEF government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has advised United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema to “ keep quiet” because he is not the right person to measure President Lungu’s performance over the 90 days he has been in office.

Mr Kambwili, who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, said in an interview yesterday that Mr Hichilema should keep quiet because he has nothing good to say about President Lungu’s leadership and the Patriotic Front (PF) administration.

The minister was reacting to Mr Hichilema’s statement in which he is quoted as saying President Lungu has misplaced his priorities from governance and has allegedly concentrated on travelling abroad.

“It is not HH [Mr Hichilema] to evaluate President Lungu’s stay in office for 90 days but Zambians because this man is a wrong person to judge the President or indeed the PF government. So, my advice to him is that ‘keep quiet’,” he said.

Mr Kambwili said Zambians are seeing that the head of State has performed well in the last three months.

He said although Mr Hichilema has a constitutional right of expression, Zambians are now enlightened and are capable of judging for themselves if President Lungu is incapable of ruling the country.

Mr Kambwili also said it is surprising that as an economist, Mr Hichilema has failed to understand the difficulties world currencies are facing against the United States (US) dollar.

He said it is wrong for Mr Hichilema to allege that the Kwacha has been at its worst performance during President Lungu’s reign when all currencies are performing poorly against the US dollar.

He advised Mr Hichilema to expend his energies on strengthening the UPND by removing the tribal tag on the party instead of talking about the PF.

Mr Kambwili also said Mr Hichilema should prepare for another electoral loss because Zambians will not vote for him if he does not work on removing the tribal tag from the UPND.

Mr Hichilema claimed in a statement issued on Saturday that Zambians have continued to see misdirected priorities under President Lungu’s 90 days in office.

    • Truth be told that we shudder to to evaluate Hichilema on his 10 years ruining leadership at the helm of UPND because there is no value he has added to UPND. From a 49 legislature membership national party under legendary Mazoka, to a 29 legislatures membership tribal party within the span. Its in a serious recession. ECL within a 3 months of pitching to Zambians, he is Head of State and gaining his party legislative strength.

    • HH IS A VERY DESPERATE PERSON AND PEOPLE MUST JUST IGNORE AND BRUSH HIM ASIDE AS POLITICAL RUBBISH. DON’T WASTE TIME ON HH. HE IS NOT A FACTOR IN POLITIX. HH FAILED TO WIN LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS EVEN WHEN PF AND MMD WERE IN DISARRAY. SO, DON’T EXPECT HIM TO WIN ELECTIONS AFTER PF HAS BEEN REORGANISED AND MADE STRONGER. MOREOVER, IF THEY HAVE CONTINUED TO BUILD ROADS AND IF TRULY THEY WILL ESTABLISH MILLING COMPANIES IN RURAL ZAMBIA JUST BARRY THE RUBBISH PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER ONCE AND FOR ALL. HE HAS MESSED UP POLITICAL COMPETITION IN ZAMBIA BY BEING TRIBAL. HE HAS CONFINED HIS UPND TO TONGALAND ONLY. WHICH IS TERRIBLE FOR COMPETITION.

    • Dear Kabwili, it is not important who evaluate the president’s 90 days in office. Yours should be to counter the issues raised. In this case due to limitation in your understanding you have gone shopping and not telling the nation what HE has done this far. In case you are not sure what issues, the falling Kwacha, poor agric policies not rectified, handling of the external and internal debt. At least you could have pointed to one positive the reversing of the useless mineral royalty tax, though you still needed to explain how the gap of K2.4billion will be filled, is it by external borrowing or cutting expenditure. Next time do better than ranting

    • @ Mwenyo

      Unfortunately, HH is a president of the party which is not in the government and therefore his performance (or lack of it) is a mater of the membership of that party.
      When it comes to H.E. the President of the Republic of Zambia (who is most senior elected officer of the Government) rules of accountability and performance (or lack of it) are subject to constant scrutiny, not just by PF rank and file, but every one citizen of Zambia.
      Therefore, try to remember (before making partisan comment) that Presidency of the Republic comes not just with “power”, but most importantly, with obligations to ALL Zambians irrelevant to theirs political affiliation.
      At the best of my knowledge, HH is a CITIZEN of the Republic of Zambia and his fundamental rights are no greater or lesser…

      If you are still insisting on your misplaced beliefs, please consult Art. 11(b) of current Constitution, which for your information, as stated in Art, 11(3), says:
      “This Constitution is the supreme law of Zambia………”

      It is most unfortunate that Hon. Kambwili has forgotten that he and all other elected or appointed government officials are duty bound to protect and not undermine this Constitution.

Can he release the terms and conditions for the loans as well as full recordings of his discussions whereever he webt to woo investors. That money been used for development is not free. Moreover, the development such as roads do not pay back the loans you and your grandchildren will have to pay for them. Before you know it the chinese will start demanding for our resources. Chinese are not the best people to deal with – you must out smart them when doing things other wise they will take advantage. You are better off with europeans because those have human hearts and respect others. Look at how they mistreat Zambian workers.

  5. The bad thing in Zambia is that we have let comments from politicians to separate us more than uniting. My fellow Zambians let us be people that will not tolerate statements to politicians especially those in government. Kambwili is also another lunatic jagass, coz these politicians’ hatred of each other if tolerated by us people will end up fighting for no reasons when these morons are enjoying.

  6. Have you ever heard Republicans and Democrats praising each other in USA? Have you ever heard Conservatives and Labour party members praising each other? Even the Democrats who were in the collision government together with the Conservatives do condemn each other. So if Kambwili expects HH to say good things about how they are stealing money from the loans they are accumulating then he better kill himself. It is him with his fellow Bembas who are talking about UPND Tribal tag which themselves used to ascend to power. Even if UPND had someone from Eastern province or from Bemba speaking dialects, he would not win because the voting system has been consistently been tribal since 2001. Check the results since 2001 you fat pig Kambwili. PF is a bunch of thieves.

  7. That’s the usual Kambwilimania!! What’s wrong with anyone, whether Zambian or foreigner criticising the so called 90 days of Chigwa in power? Seriously, what has Chigwa done in the last three months? Its true that he has spent all his time in the air, just like Rupiah did. Can Kambwili list 3 solid evidences of what Chagwa has done in 90 days! I accept Chagwa to be our president, but I suggest Kambwili uses a better time-line for measuring Chagwa’s performance than the now proverbial 90 days, which even the dead failed to achieve. Its very clear that the cost of living in Zambia has gone up lately according to the latest JTRC analysis. If I were Kambwili, I would shut my mouth and concentrate on finding better ways to improve the lot of many Zambians who go to bed on a hungry stormach…

  9. Hon. Kambwili,
    may I respectfully remind you of the contents of Art. 11(b) of the constitution which is crystal clear:

    ” freedom of conscience, expression, assembly, movement and association; ”

    Therefore, until proven otherwise in the Court of Law, Mr. Hichilema has the same rights as any other PERSON in Zambia to comment on the achievements or lack of achievements of the party in government and also about lack of direction of such party and its officials.

    I am sure that even person of below average intelligence like yourself is capable to understand above quoted Constitutional provision.

    • If the only prerequisite to evaluate the president’s performance is that one be Zambian then I am afraid Mr Minister HH does qualify.

      If on the other hand it is that one ought to have been saying only positive things about the president, then there would be no need for a performance evaluation.

Are you suggesting that even when the country is going down a precipice people should keep quiet? This is stup1d Zambian wisdom. No wonder Zambia is mere market for other countries. Every Zambian, including HH, has right to criticise the president and the government whenever things are not right. After all HH pays more in taxes to the government than some of the people who are just waffling.

    ….CK stance on opposition must be put under scrutiny….otherwise before we know it…opposition shall be rendered useless…democracy shall just remain on paper while the reality shall be one party state…..MMD is slowly melting out of existence….erase Nawakwi from FDD there will be no FDD to talk about….other parties NAREP, PP, UNIP etc are just figure heads…this tribal outburst CK is always highlighting must be discouraged by all right minded Zambians.

  15. Everyone has a right to speak his or her mind just like CK and HH. The true of the matter Zambians voted for EL and Zambians voted for HH, only that most (majority by 1 %) Zambian voted in favour of EL. My own opinion is that EL and his group must work hard to maintain the lead otherwise the next election, votes could change. So CK should not say Zambians will not vote for HH, Zambians (more than 40%) voted for HH and may be CK ‘s wife voted for HH as well

    Being an opposition leader I think he is the best to point out the missing links that are hindering Government achieve its success such the dollar appreciation against the Kwacha. CK should instead tell us the strategies in place to offset the strengthening of the dollar instead of finding excuses.

The tribal tag of any political party will only be removed by people like CK who WHENEVER he talks about UPND/HH, a tribal sentence comes in. During Supper Ken’s time, frogs never used to win elections against him. This time around I have seen species looking like the amphibians winning elections… I wish I was a politician may be I would understand why there is so much dust and potholes next to my house with all my PAYE

    Your repost seems to suggest it is a debt that will magically resolve itself….if only we vote HH. How will HH stop the strong USA dollar depreciating the kwacha?

    Duty of Opposition is to raise issues, but in a constructive way that follows a democratic path, that is for the good of the country and people. Just being disagreeable like a indignant child after sweeties in a Supermarket with Mum, is not doing HH any good.

    Enter HH, UPND went down over the years. In January 2015 HH nearly got it by campaigning very hard and taking advantage of the PF internal feuds. Once PF elected Edgar, the fortunes of HH simply evaporated in the face of a nonentity who had only campaigned for a few days.

    Come 2016, the bitterness of HH will consume him as he is sending unpalatable signals to the electorate.

    UPND sycophants will do well to read sense in Hon Kambwili’s statement so that they can guide their president, but alas! they are simply incorrigible like an ostrich with its head in the sand!

  30. C. KAMBWILI’S REACTON TO HH’S EVALUATION OF PRESIDENT LUNGU’S 90 DAYS PERFORMANCE IN OFFICE GOES TO SHOW THAT ZAMBIA HAS LEADERS WITH EMPTY HEADS. INSTEAD OF ISSUING A HOLLOW STATEMENT, KAMBWILI WOULD HAVE DONE WELL TO ISSUE A COUNTER STATEMENT TO SHOW HOW WELL THE PRESIDENT HAS PERFORMED DURING HIS 90 DAYS IN OFFICE. IN FACT HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PRO-ACTIVE BY ISSUING A STATEMENT OF PERFORMANCE BEFORE HH, INSTEAD OF BEING REACTIVE TO HH’S STATEMENT. KAMBWILI SHOULD BE EDUCATED THAT HH AND OTHERS IN OPPOSITION DO NOT ONLY HAVE A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT AS CITIZENS BUT HAVE ALSO A DUTY AS OPPOSITION LEADERS TO TAKE ON THE PRESIDENT ON NATIONAL ISSUES AFFECTING THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA, THAT IS DEMONCRACY WHICH WE FOUGHT FOR IN 1990. KAMBWILI LET US HAVE YOUR VERSION OF PRESIDENT LUNGU’S…

  31. How some of these silly trends start. The late dictator pulled that 90-day nonsense right out of his tail pipe. Now ka Lungu thinks it’s a fashionable trademark.

  32. Kambwili is just a replica of late SATA. There can never be a time when kambwili will be civil enough to talk smoothly to HH. Whenever Kambwili hears HH speak it is like some one is pricking him in his neck. I can only advise Kambwili for once to be civil and behave like a normal homocipien who has 5 senses of reasoning, where he is able to differenciate between an exchange of views and arguing. Just because Lungu is a President of Zambia never makes him superio than these other phyilosophers we have in the country. It is just by shear circumstacial that he has the courage to pre-dispose himeselt to insults to stand the test of time, hence he is a risky taker. Some intellects are not risk takers because they are able to see dangers as they continue analysing issues.
