The Patriotic Front (PF) has said that it’s former Secretary General Wynter Kabimba was a man who was seen as arrogant and pompous for a party he never founded, and despite never winning an election his entire political career, failing twice as MP in his own home town.

In a statement released to the media marking the one year anniversary of his dismissal, Vice Chairperson for Media and Publicity Committee Sunday Chanda said that Mr. Kabimba was blinded by power and fake popularity in his friendly media in their futile attempts to sell him to the nation as a successor to late President Sata.

Below is the full statement

WYNTER KABIMBA’S DISMISSAL FROM PF ONE YEAR ON, AS DR. MUMBA IS ADVISED TO LOOK AT THE MAN IN HIS MIRROR – SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE

Lusaka, Zambia, 28th August 2015 – Today August 28th marks exactly one year since our late Patriotic Front (PF) and Republican President His Excellency Michael Chilufya Sata (MHSRIP) fired Mr. Wynter Kabimba as Patriotic Front General Secretary, Minister of Justice and nominated Member of Parliament. President Sata replaced Mr. Kabimba with current Republican President His Excellency Edgar Lungu as the then new party Secretary General and Minister of Justice, in addition to his portfolio as Minister of Defence. This showed President Sata’s huge trust and confidence in President Lungu. Mr. Kabimba had been a destabilizing figure within both Government and PF due to his arrogance and failed schemes to hijack the Presidency together with a group of cartel members supported by a known media which still spews hatred towards President Lungu and the PF on a daily basis out of frustration and anger at their failed political project.

The country vividly recalls how within seconds of the statement being made public that the unpopular PF Secretary General and Minister of Justice had been fired, thousands of Zambians from across the country in all 10 provinces spontaneously and jubilantly celebrated and danced, with traffic being disrupted. The reason people celebrated his sacking was because this was a man who was seen as arrogant and pompous for a party he never founded, and despite never winning an election his entire political career, failing twice as MP in his own home town. Mr. Kabimba was blinded by power and fake popularity in his friendly media in their futile attempts to sell him to the nation as a successor to late President Sata. Hence he became a Hated Figure in PF and the entire nation.

Mr. Kabimba was always given wide press coverage by his friends at a known media house, as they still do today, portraying him and his cartel friends to public as President Sata’s chief praise singers, while demonizing those within PF who were perceived to be their political opponents like President Edgar Lungu, minister of finance Hon. Alexander Chikwanda and others. The result of Mr. Kabimba’s acidic politics was serious divisions within PF with intraparty and interparty violence. Even some opposition leaders who today are quiet hated Mr. Kabimba, with UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema even stating that even if Kabimba was the last lawyer on earth to represent him in Court HH would prefer going to Prison.

Mr. Kabimba was a man that had the audacity to play ping-pong with progress in the Constitution making process, which was only reversed when President Lungu became Justice Minister and Zambians are hopeful of ensuring key constitutional amendments this year and a referendum on the remainder of the Constitution to run side by side with elections next year.

President Sata’s decision to appoint His Excellency President Lungu stabilized the PF and healed wounds and divisions caused by Mr. Kabimba and his cartel friends. Despite the cartel fighting tooth and nail to hijack power once again following the unfortunate death of President Sata last October 2014, PF members and Zambians rallied behind President Lungu and defeated those forces of evil. Against all odds, President Lungu was first elected as PF President and subsequently as Republican President 7 months ago.

Even today as Mr. Kabimba serves as Rainbow party leader, his supporters at a known media house with equally inflated egos and huge financial liabilities have not given up their intentions as can be seen by their unprincipled and pathetic personal attacks on President Lungu and the PF government on a daily basis. Fortunately, Zambians have seen through the cheap lies and hatred of these scandalous individuals who are being made to account to the Zambian people for the billions of kwacha they owe in unpaid taxes and public loans. We welcome Mr. Kabimba, his Rainbow party and their media friends to the democratic arena where they can prove their popularity to the Zambian people through participation in elections.

Lastly, we take great exception to MMD leader Nevers Mumba sentiments in the Post Newspaper today. While his remarks remain inconsequential and not worth responding to, we advise him to look at the man in his mirror and ask that man to change his ways. It’s sad that Dr. Mumba is mistaking the man in his mirror for President Lungu. It is also not surprising that MMD under Dr. Mumba has remained a sinking Titanic. Dr. Mumba cannot play victim by apportioning blame on others for MMD’s haemorrhage. His leadership has failed to pass the test and let him gather courage and take responsibility for what he has done to the former ruling party.

In this regard, we therefore appeal to all PF members and Zambian citizens to rally behind the leadership of President Lungu who has proven to be a UNIFIER of both party and country, rather than practicing politics of hatred and division.

28 COMMENTS

  1. That we know about Kabimba, and we don’t need to be reminded by stooges like Sunday Chanda. Kabimba is no longer annoying.
    Our now concern is Tasila Lungu and her father who are on the loose, one in the north and other in south all worsting time for people who have to protect them. Why should police department be busy following ka Tashila wherever she is going? While his father has another team with him in Namibia and every where… Those security men also has families to take care off, they don’t need to go out and sleep with other women on tours.

    • Nostradamus if those security men are not taken on tours by Lungu, they will blame you for the loss of allowances. Please be mindful of other people’s career privilleges.

  2. Did I miss the anniversary party? Did you folks go all out and have balloons and cake? Send me a slice. I am sure Summer has some humble pie left over but your attention seems like you have too much time on your hands. I want a corner slice of your round cake please.

    • Wynter might have been arrogant, but he also worked hard for the party to push Pf into office most of you including your boss. He was fighting RB’s corrupt judges & its machinery. He kept them busy with injunctions single handedly & to allow Sata & GBM space to campaign. Though he lost most of the cases, he bought time and space for campaigns to continue. So he was arrogant but he hard also worked hard and mobilised the party. Yes he has flows but better off than Lungu the chancer.

  3. Friday Chanda should know that even his firing will attract jubilation in all parts of the country because he is equally fake. His analysis is issues is very hollow.

  4. Ba Sunday Chanda lets wait for you to be kicked out of PF. Then we will be told by your fellow PF members just how claptrap, imbecillic, arrogant you are. You couldnt tell Kabimba what you are saying now then- You really must be a coward

  5. No condition is permanent Sunday. Mr. Kabimba may not have had his wish come true and bruised a few egos in his ambitions in PF; but you never know where he may end up. Do not be too personal and crude in reminding Kabimba of his past. In fact, this statement is exhibiting the same behavior it is purporting to condemn as it is also praise singing for somebody. Have it in mind that days are numbered and somebody someday after the power shift will likely say similar things about you and your masters; it won’t be nice either. Be civil and moderate your discourse, it is about ideas and best service to Zambians and mankind; it is never personal.

    • It’s called politics. You highlight your opponent’s weaknesses/mistakes/misdemeanours etc. and play dumb on their strengths. Also there are no permanent foes or friends in politics. Who knows this same Sondo Chanda could join Rainbow Party in future and sing praises for Kabwamba

  6. Look at the regular culprits in PF. Viva president Nawakwi. Kambwili, Chellah, Mumbi Phiri, Chanda, Kalaba, that guy that told the president about general kanene so as he was released. The Nchanga MP, no wonder President Lungu is forced to hire Dora the explorer and Kaingu game reserve as replacements; plus UPND UBZ clerks as ministers. The PF has no one of calibre except Banda minister of local government.

    Viva President Nawakwi.

  7. We all know that winter Kabimba was arrogant and pompous but we should learn from his mistakes not only condemning him otherwise this man did more harm to the nation than good.He is a nincompoop

  8. Sunday Chanda, simple minds discuss people while great minds discuss issues/ideas. Morever, people with glass houses should not throw stones. Why should you spend so much time celebrating and spilling over to Zambians Kabimba’s dismissal yet the current holder of that office and his deputy are equally arrogant. How certain are you in your posts past September 2016? Its unfortunate for a youthful leader of Sunday Chanda’s calibre who, God willing, has a lot of time to witness Zambia’s political turnaround to start with such a wrong footing. Kaunda is 91 and any mess he did in the 1960s (if any) haunts him 50 years on. Trend carefully brother, you still have a long way. Stick on real party issues. I doubt if Kabimba ever used a gun to intimidate an opponent in campaigns. Stay…

  9. Kabimba is a washed up politician with very limited ideas. For one, you cannot go around saying you are a Socialist, people do not relate to the term and the age of Socialism is long gone.
    Look, Kabimba had a golden chance to be president but his conspiring really got him tangled.

    • They are still hot at it! Everyday The Post mirrors Kabimba as the only capable man and their preaching socilaism is to woodwick the masses who seen oblivious to his signals. It is shameful what he did and how Winter ended up. At one time he felt the impact so much that he withdrew to his farm and had some solitude time. However his conspirators couldn’t allow him to give up, they wrote about how good he was and that he held the PF together. After praise singing him they emcouraged him to form a political party that will split the PF into 2 and bring down ECL. However all this has not worked out as they wished, the majority who disliked Winter still do up to date.
      The politics of this country have been soiled by personal attacks on people and in 2016, most will be very disoriented once…

  10. Mr. Kabimba was blinded by power and fake popularity in his friendly media in their futile attempts to sell him to the nation as a successor to late President Sata

  11. President Lungu better fund something more meaningful for his daughter to do than going round the country to dance she will be in the line of insults through out if he wants her to stand as MP let him come in the open.

  12. Sunday you can do better. What about having a life. A year on you should have been talking about how PF has improved. But to talk about Winter’s arrogance is way, way below average.
    But then what else can you talk about. ECL’s governance is just as childish.

  13. YES, KABIMBA EVEN BLOCKED GUY SCOTT FROM BECOMING AN AUTOMATIC PRESIDENT IN THE CASE OF SAY WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR LATE SATA. KABIMBA SAT ON THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION THAT AS HE FEARED GUY SCOTT WAS GOING TO BE PRESIDENT IN THE CASE AMENDING THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION. KABIMBA CAN NEVER WIN ANY ELECTION. THAT CAN BE A MIRACLE IF HE DID.

  14. Pride came before the fall of the arrogant Wynter Kabimba…i wonder where i have heard this song before?

  15. I have not failed to notice that one topic that Summer Kabimba has never mentioned since attempts were launched to resurrect him from the dead is the constitution. He was the main culprit in not giving us a new constitution and so he cannot dare talk about it. As for his socialism, let the Past news and their Kabimba be told that socialism is a long term commitment, it starts at university and does not just happen. What was Kabimba’s ideology when he was in PF? Can he just wake and start preaching socialism to us? He talks socialism because to the coo on man and voter it sounds like the solution to their poverty. But Kabimba and the Past news are doing for their schemes to create wealth and power for the themselves, crooks!!!!!

  16. Wasted time writing about a SINGLE person. I am sorry that I do not read such rubbish. I don’t like Kabimba, but that does not mean that he should be attacked personally. PF must be solving problems and not behaving like an opposition party.

  17. We live in a Zambia where our values are defined by the least ethical people among us.It’s therefore crazy to expect any change from Kabimba and the cartel members by calling to their moral sense, or by just exposing them. Mr Chanda, please understand that these people have no moral sense. They have no shame. And, they are not ignorant. They know well what they are doing, and, they also know very well why they are doing so. Only naïve Zambians think that they could educate cartel members into changing. Kabimba and cartel members understand only one language: their interest. They will continue to destroy, kill, hurt, oppress if that’s in their interest. From his recent conduct, I’m disappointed that HH doesn’t quite understand this group of individuals.

  18. Sunday Chanda aka Katyetye mwenda mwalimwa.The demise and chronicle illness of the PF started immediately the late President Sata (MHSRIP) relieved Hon Kabimba as Secretary General of the Party.Paid up mobs celebrated in the streets signifying the beginning of lawlessness in the Party and to some extent in Government as there was no one brave enough to give advice and guidance and say Your Excellency we are going contrary to what we stood for.Praise singers like my young boy Chanda do not understand the cancer that had crept in the PF.As an insider and a strong advocate of the PF which we funded whole heartedly without hoping to be rewarded.Indiscipline in the Party was sponsored by a clique of some Copperbelt MP’s who are today divided and are serving in Government.Their aims and…

  19. Instead of providing solutions to the falling economy the ***** is busy talking about Winter Kabwamba. You are as useless as Summer

  20. Tell Lungu the same message. Isn’t he equally too arrogant for a party he never founded? He removed founder member Guy Scott turned round founder Sata’s policies of prosecuting corrupt leaders such as Rupiah and Dora but Sunday you won’t be able to say this until Lungu is out of PF next year when he loses and joins MMD

  21. KABIMBA, (MHSRIP) CAN BE REMEMBERED ONLY FOR ONE THING. HE WAS THE CHIEF ARCHITECT OF THE 36 BY-ELECTIONS WHICH HAVE GOBBLED OVER K3 TRILLION IN OLD MONEY. MIND YOU THAT WAS HOW MUCH HE FEARED THE MMD.

    BUT MMD IS NOW COMING BACK TO HAUNT HIM WITH HIS USELESS SOCIALISM WHICH EVEN CHINA AND RUSSIA, THE ORIGINAL OWNERS, HAVE ABANDONED.
