THE Government has dismissed media reports that President Edgar Lungu was insulted and booed by soccer fans during a football match at Heroes national Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili said the story by the Post Newspaper in yesterday’s edition that President Lungu was booed by
soccer fans following a power outage which was experienced soon before and minutes into the friendly match between Zambia and Gabon was a lie.

“This is a grotesque lie which all well meaning Zambians should ignore with the contempt it deserves,” said Mr Kambwili in a statement released yesterday.

Mr Kambwili said contrary to the allegations, President Lungu and his
Government had continued to enjoy national wide support as evidenced by victories in 2015 presidential election and seven parliamentary by-elections since January.

He said it is worth noting that the proceedings at Heroes National Stadium were carried live on the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) from start to the end save for brief moments when transmission was disrupted by power outage.

Mr Kambwili who is also Information and Broadcasting Services Minister said the Government was however not surprised that the so called insults were only heard by the newspaper with a well known anti-government agenda.

He said Zambians have shown that they are politically mature who would not use such a forum to engage in petty politics.

“Government also wishes to advise John mambo to be truthful and Christ-like in commenting on national issues.

“He should concentrate on preaching the Word of God instead of hiring himself as a vuvuzela to The Post Newspaper,” Mr Kambwili said.

The Chief Government spokesperson warned that he would be left with no option but take action against the newspaper if it continued to mislead the nation and publish hate speech.

“I further wish to warn The Post newspaper that if it continues to mislead the nation, publish hate speech and engage in misinformation against the Government, I will be left with no option but to take action which the newspaper will leave to regret,” Mr Kambwili said.

The Government reiterated its commitment to deliver on its promises and no amount of lies, concoctions and innuendos would sway it from achieving its mission.

Mr Kambwili has also directed all Government institutions and other public spending agencies to immediately stop advertising in The Post because of the newspaper’s
confrontational stance against the government.

  1. What Colour or brand underwear are you wearing?? Why so Trivial, Does it matter. this is the same level of triviality you are expressing about a government worrying about being booed because of a situation that he hasn’t brought the nation to address. Too many to mention. you are really a cadre. why not trying to be a well meaning bright resourceful minister addressing on probable situations. Surely Kambwili our looks don’t determine our intelligence. Only if. have a nice weekend

    • This issue of ejaculating uncontrolled empty statements by kambwili,,,is making this guy look worse than a kaponya.
      Check Given Lubinda or Guy Scot, they know things are bad in PF, therefore they wont make siyopeti statements to make the situation worse

    • Chishimba Kambwil can not issue a “government statement” without threats. I really get confused in what capacity he speaks; as government Spokesman or Minister of Information. I am now certain he is sure of the lines himself.

    • Dear minister sir, all you know is warning people and institutions. That is not government like approach to serious national matters. Just to remind you that we are following up on your pronouncements, you did warm the lecturers from CBU, you warned mine owners, warned Dora not to join PF, warned opposition on a number of times and the list goes on. The question is what have you done in the past which will be different with regards to the Past News Paper? Recall Mumembe was your close partner has PF not long ago, what has changes sir.

  5. I do not know whether to have honor Chishimba Kambwili as a Chief Government Spokesperson who just rants 95% most of the time is a blessing or a curse. In my view a person who do not want to face a reality, the truth is a curse. Pretending that all is well when things are bad is like being a witch doctor who tells people that he has solutions to all problems. What I see in him is that he doesn’t care about the president, the people and all those who are in poverty as long as he can maintain a ministerial post through lying. Those people who are telling the president the truth loves the president because they want the president to be aware of his short comings in order to improve. I wonder if Chishimba knows what a minister means. A minister means a servant. He doesn’t communicate like a…

  6. What kills the performance of the president is the TELL ME WHAT I WANT TO HEAR sydrome. Fine, as Kambwili said, the proceedings were carried live on TV except disruptions when there was power cut. The guy is telling us to follow the TV footage about the booing while he confesses their were disruptions during power outage. Cum’on hon, the booing was happening during the power outage so how do we follow the footage? How I wish some one can send us a clip. Okay hon, how about in Solwezi? The video footage is there for every one to see what can you tel us. Secondly sir, why is it that your rantings are always full of threats meanwhile no action is followed up, cant you be civil in your speech.

  7. … Post will LEAVE to regret. I am very particular when people use words like leave for live, quite for quiet , where for were….So your block govt adverts in the PAst Newspaper to punish them!!!!!!!!What a shame
    Sometimes I want to avoid reading what Chishimba Kambwili or Sunday Chanda say in their statements but UNFORTUNATELY these are our leaders by virtual of their responsibilities just as we have sopano ine ndine Mother of the nation going around the country side. Otherwise I would never employ any of these to look after my cows. There will be fights with other kachemas at the animal water drinking holes.

  8. THE KAUNDA SYNDROME
    As President Kaunda was about to suffer humiliation in 1991, his ministers were feeding him similar lies. Col Kingsley Chinkuli was a typical case. He went to Chililabombwe and met angry supporters there. On his return to Lusaka, he told President Kaunda that everything was fine and that UNIP still had overwhelming support. What Gen Chinkuli did not know was the guys from “Red Brick House” had already phoned KK and told him the truth. Chinkuli was sent back to Chililabombwe to get the correct facts!

  9. Kambwili wants to show Edgar Lungu that he is doing what Lungu expects him to do,i.e. cheat Zambians as much as possible.
    The thousands of football fans in the stadium were once PF supporters who are now fed up with PF,that was why they booed Lungu,period.

  12. What a view to commend …..Why not change the view and do something else.
    A Tembo muzabwela kuno Chipata kwanu…unless you have gone for ever……Osa tukana achimwene.
    We are not Gorillas when you look back at us….Pepani achimwene….Nzelu za Mulungu nizabwino…..

  13. Two important offices are being mishandled: the Press Aide and the Information Ministry. These are the windows into the heart of government and currently all they are doing is delaying the ugly inevitable by now cleaning and airing the wounds of the government in power. I know that defunding the press is not new and it has never killed any news outlet. It only creates conditions for the inevitable karma to bite faster.

  15. JUST ADMIT IT, THE BOY LUNGU WAS BOOED! LUNGU DESERVES TO BE BOOED BECAUSE HE IS A BIG LET DOWN. HE IS VISION-LESS AND HAS DESTROYED OUR BELOVED COUNTRY WITHIN A SHORT-SPACE OF TIME. LUNGU SHOULD BE PUNISHED ONCE HE LEAVES OFFICE FOR ALLOWING CORRUPTION TO FLOURISH IN OUR COUNTRY. LUNGU IS CORRUPT LIKE MANY OTHER PF LEADERS. LUNGU IS A CURSE FOR ZAMBIA, AND THE EARLIER WE REMOVED HIM OUT OF OFFICE THE BETTER.

  16. The PF government under the leadership of President Lungu continues to enjoy nation-wide support as evidenced by its victories in the January 20, 2015 presidential elections and seven parliamentary by-elections held in several constituencies around the country since President Lungu ascended to office.

  17. Kambwili, learn to tell the truth. ZNBC did not record the booing but social media had it all over. They even indicated to ECL that the wanted a substitution on the political bench which he acknowledge and gave a sign that HH will take the captaincy band and he would leave the field.
    Just get back to Luanshya because things are getting heated Baba.
    Leave the Post to do their job. They helped you and now it is time for others to be helped. You found the Post and it will out live you!
