Government has described Fourth Revolution Party leader Eric Chanda as a political novice who has no following in Zambian politics.

Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili stated that the PF Government takes great exception to remarks by Mr Chanda for insinuating that Zambians should not vote for President Edgar Lungu next year so that he can pay attention to his health.

Mr Kambwili said Government is concerned that for some time now, Mr Chanda has been quoted in some sections of the media disparaging President Lungu.

He warned the 4R leader that soon he will be required to answer for his careless statements.

‘Mr Chanda’s disrespect for the Head of State makes one wonder whether he has any respect for the office of the President which he so envisions as would be his in future,’ Mr Kambwili said,

He added, ‘Contrary to Mr Chanda’s distasteful comments in Wednesday’s edition of The Post, Government, under the leadership of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, is on course to deliver development to the people and no amount of negativity from Mr Chanda and his ilk will derail it from achieving this objective.’
He continued, ‘And the earlier Mr Chanda woke up to the reality that he is a political novice, with no following, the better for him, otherwise he is destined for political archive.’

Mr Kambwili said on the incident where police are reported to have dispersed a crowd of people that had gone to attend a meeting over a land settlement dispute in Chiparamba area of Eastern Province last Sunday, he stated that it was police duty to ensure there was peace in the area and that reports of tear-gassing residents were highly exaggerated in the media.

‘Government, therefore, wishes to advise the media to report professionally and objectively and avoid fanning unnecessary tensions over the incident.’

  1. If Chanda is a political novice, why bother answering back? ignore him.

    Just like you should have ignored pilato and his “a lungu anabwela song”

    • Gen,
      You are a fool, Why ask the question you know the answer for? You are an amazing political fool

    • KAMBWILI YOU ARE A BETTER POLITICAL NOVICE THAN CHANDA. CHANDA IS MORE ORGANIZED AND MORE COURAGEOUS THAN YOURSELF. HE FORMED A PARTY, AND HE IS ITS PRESIDENT, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU. LEAVE ERIC CHANDA ALONE. ZAMBIANS NEED PEOPLE LIKE ERIC CHANDA TO TOP THE EVIL PERPETRATED BY YOU POLITICIANS.

    • It is sad that a sober-minded person can call Mr. Chanda organized – muleunfwako insoni sometimes. And no, sycophants like Pilato and Chanda should not be ignored but need to be assisted to become normal citizens.

  2. @the black woman not pink,you have an ego problem and small brains,learn to tame that small ego of yours,what wrong has gen said and you insult him like that?are you a cadre appointed at the zambian embassy or what?you get emotional over small true statements,democracy is not just voting but voicing out what you stand for as well.grow up and shut your small musula wobe

  3. But this novice obtained 12,000 votes and came ahead of Elias Chipimo? I think Chanda has some following to say the least.

  4. THE AU MEETING ATTENDED TWO DAYS AGO BUT WHERE IS THE PRESIDENT? IS HE NOT ATTENDING MEDICAL REVIEWS IN SA?
    SO WE LET HIM CONCRETRATE OF HIS MEDICALS AS ALL THE ENTOURAGE IS IN SA SPENDING TAX PAYERS MONEY.
    NO WONDER THE BUDGET FLOP.
    CHANDA IS RIGHT I SUPPORT HIM AND I AM HIS FOLLOWER

  5. Ati delivering developmenteee borrowing every day, you have failed to create wealth for the country, corruption allegations are the order of the day. And maybe you can tell about the council land you looted in luwanshia?

  6. Sometimes I think Lungu is afraid of being president and just wants to be a one term president. How can he maintain this buffoon Gorilla look alike in the most important Cabinet position? The government spokesperson is the face of the government. You need someone intelligent and analytical.Even diploma holder Given Lubinda is better than this Copperstone University Graduate.

  7. @Sudan I don’t support Chanda but you are right, he got 12,000 more than Kambwili would have got! Minister Kambwili is just jealous of President! Chanda

  8. Chanda has followers sir! And u arent delivering development but nkongole to Zambia Sir. We arent dull Sir, not anymore. And what is Chikwanda still doing in govnt? Nabakota aboo

  9. THIS CHANDA MAN IS TOO TALKATIVE FOR NOTHING…..LET HIM JUST JOIN PF IF HE WANTS TO ADD VALUE TO ZAMBIAN POLITICS.YAPPING ANY HOW WILL NOT HELP THIS ERIC MAN.

  10. Chimpanzee posture uko kwine Chimbwili, let Chanda be heard.
    ECL needs to sort out his health, Zambian tax payer has paid enough for sick presidents and government officials. Others die leaving hard cash in dollars and pounds in their bedrooms like Nsanda- greed.

  11. kAMBWILI IS BETTER THAN THIS CHANDA MAN POLITICALLY….WE HAVE SEEN WHAT KAMBWILI HAS ACHIEVED BUT NOT CHANDA WHO IS NOT EVEN A WARD CHAIRMAN.
