INFORMATION and Broadcasting Services Minister Chishimba Kambwili has said that tribe does not matter for a president as long the person can deliver development to the people.

Speaking in Malambo constituency where he is campaigning for the Patriotic Front (PF) candidate Jacob Shuma, Mr Kambwili said he does not matter where one comes from but what one can offer to the people of Zambia.

“Tribe is nothing, that’s the reason we have President Lungu has our President in a party perceived to be for Bemba’s. We look at the quality of the leader and not the tribe,” he said.

Mr Kambwili added that people campaigning on tribal grounds should not be tolerated in a democracy and should not be voted for.

The minister said the ruling party has already shown what it can do for the people through various developmental projects going on throughout the country.

He cited the construction of health facilities, roads, provision of electricity to households and schools in rural areas as some of the major developmental projects that the ruling party has embarked on to alleviate the suffering of the people.

Mr Kambwili has since urged the people Malambo constituency in Mambwe district of Eastern province to give President Edgar Lungu more MPs from Eastern province.

He said President Lungu is committed to delivering development to the country hence the need to support him by giving him more MPS.

Mr Kambwili said he is confident that Mr. Shuma will perform if elected to office because President Lungu does not entertain non performing MPs.

He also assured the residents that the problem of water reticulation in Mambwe district will be resolved as government had procured drillers for all the 10 provinces.

  1. Kambwili yapping!

    How is Kambwili surviving after selling his “soul to the devil” if Dora the BANDIT joined PF visionless party?

    Kambwili, Dr Kaseba has no house & was evicted from the bucks lodge b’coz PF is broke, whilst selfish & greedy Kaseba yearns for more looting.

    Vi oneni vima BANDITS!

    • No matter what you say PF is still in power. You are the same people who will cry foul about tribe. The Bemba man has said tribe matters less you start blaming him. Then what do you want

    • The minister of health was right when he said there is an outbreak of elephantiasis!! He only forgot to warn us that it also attacks the neck.

    • What a political message coming from a senior government officer. Well masked to appear as if he is condemning tribalism when in fact he is appealing for votes on tribal basis. When will our politicians stop playing the tribal card. There is no value in tribalism Mr Kambwili

    • The PF will ride on this message of tribalism until they win in 2016. They have nothing to show of for, not even a few developments on borrowed money, but will talk about tribalism until they win. The unfortunate part is that for sure they will win and more problems for Zambia

  2. Kambwili should be crying into his chibuku because Lungu is entrenching himself and will not give up PF that easily. The “clever” Bembas have made a mistake this time, the way Chiluba crucified himself by single-sourcing Mwanawasa in 2001.

    • In other ways, the Minister is saying one Zambia one nation. you should be a UPND cadre. If it was in Southern Province, UPND would be saying vote for a Tonga party…shame!

    • @Czar: “bakaluvale” is more accurate but these are semantics. You know what “danny mwaba” meant.

    • No in that case he should refer to them as “Baluvales”. That is the more accurate way. I have mixed with the Luvales and I know they don’t appreciate being referred to as “Bakalubale”.

  4. You can see how dull and fool.ish this idio.t is. Who is being tribal here, isn’t it this idio.t himself? The PF is made up of very naïve idio.ts. Why is it that all the time, in their discourse, they have to mention tribe? Who is tribal in this case, isn’t it the PF? It shows signs of inadequacies on their part and hence turning to tribe as their only tramp card. Just hear all of them speak! Even Chagwa-Agwa is the same. What they are forgetting is that Zambians are intelligent enough to discern where their talk is leading to. They are just a bunch of nincompoop.s. We entrusted our country in wrong hands and the idio.ts have come to roost.

  6. For me it is a good sign that the BEMBAs have realised that , it was a mistake to bring LUNGU on board. I have no reservations, LUNGU had saved us from small tribes. RB is the GOD father and he could see it coming. BEMBAS are so ellusive and think that they own Zambia regardless of their high levels of poverty. They (BEMBAS ) are good at yapping and represent a very good empty vessels as they are thrown on the ground. I have respect for the Namwangas and those other small tribes because they are hard workers, but unfortunately they are surrounded by the thieving BEMBAS who even frastrate them, for they continously steal from them. Easterners, I have no problems with them, they are quite good, the only draw back is TUCHAWA AT WORK PLACE and can make you loose your job, they like stubbing .

    • Very good observation @Rasco. BEMBAS want the easy way to get rich. That’s why they dominate politics where they are like ticks depending on tax payers money. Unfortunately they’re unable to sustain the stolen money after leaving office. Even those working in offices are good at pretending to be busy while doing very little but want salary at the month end. They’re also the champions of corruption.

    • Bembas are a menace to Zambian society. Their corruption, thieving and ability to brew chaos where order should prevail, are disgusting. These people should go back to Kola in DRC where they belong.

  7. IT APPEARS FROM THIS STATEMENT THAT KAMBWILI SEEMS DISILLUSIONED. HE IS ACTUALLY SAYING MORE THAN IT WOULD APPEAR ON FACE VALUE. THE SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE IS THAT HE IS READY TO BACK ANOTHER CANDIDATE AND MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE THE PF CANDIDATE. WORD IN THE GRAPE VINE IS THAT THERE IS QUITE A FEW SENIOR PF MEMBERS AND MINISTERS ABOUT TO GIVE LUNGU THE SHOCK OF HIS LIFE. THIS WHOLE RUPHIA BANDA AND MAHTANI ISSUE HAS NOT SAT WELL WITH THE ORIGINAL PF. LUNGU WILL FIND HIMSELF STRADDLING THE FENCE SOLO. KEKEKEKEKE
