Father Luonde has no moral right to lecture on leadership-Kambwili

General News Father Luonde has no moral right to lecture on leadership-Kambwili

CHIEF Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has charged that former Anglican priest Richard Luonde has no moral right to lecture on leadership because he was sacked by his church for failing to lead.

Mr Kambwili who is Information and Broadcasting Services Minister, said the leaders in Government have demonstrated their commitment to serve the Zambian people contrary to Father Luonde’s observations.

The former Anglican priest was quoted in yesterday’s edition of The Post newspaper saying that the Patriotic Front (PF) leaders were working for their own pockets and not for the ordinary Zambians.

The controversial clergyman recently lost his case in the Ndola Industrial Court after suing the church for wrongful dismissal in August last year.

His dismissal came amid complaints from irate congregants who had locked him out of his office at St Peter’s Anglican Church in Kitwe after accusing him of dividing the flock with his political statements.

Mr Kambwili said in an interview that Fr Luonde worked for his pockets and not for his church members when he served as St Peter’s Anglican Church priest-in-charge but warned that the PF was not like him.

The Minister accused Fr Luonde of being a ‘vuvuzela’ of The Post as well as the Rainbow Party and asked him to seek deliverance for misleading church members when he was a priest.

“Fr Luonde has been ex-communicated by his church because he worked for his pocket and proved that he is not a leader. Therefore, he has no moral right to talk about leaders in PF or in Government.

“Instead, he should concentrate on mobilising his party the Rainbow Party which has no members ahead of next year’s general elections,” he said.

Mr Kambwili said Fr Luonde should be more worried with the leadership in Rainbow Party and its future after receiving just 200 votes in the party’s first participation in parliamentary elections in Lubansenshi.

He also appealed to well meaning Zambians to pray for the clergyman so that he could realise that he had taken a wrong path.

“He is using the name of a priest illegally because he is not a priest, but a politician, and I want to ask Zambians to pray for him so that he can seek deliverance and go back to the pulpit,” he said.

  1. The case of a pot calling the kettle black.I guess having ZMW at 13 to a dollar translate to excellent leadership according to Kambwili.I wonder how dull people become ministers nowonder Sata MHSRIP called them useless

    • Chikambwili at it again. No wonder they say an ” empty tin makes the loudest noise” – you are are fat for nothing that is why you make a lot of noise. We shall see come 2016 if you will be making such noise again.

  2. I guess this also applies to childless fake father bwaya who used to bonk other peoples wives in his office.Why doesn he drop the term father as well.

  3. dollar is now at 13k and all this government spokesmoron can do is talk rubbish.Am sure most Zambians would like to know what the government is doing to address the collapse of the kwacha and not talking about this luonde chap.

  4. Hon. Kambwili,

    Please, as you are Government Chief Spoke-person, can you clarify ONE issue which this Nation is at loss to understand, that is to say Government absolute INERTIA to urgently address economical collapse of the Country?
    In so far we heard from you why opposition parties are bad, we heard why NGO’s are waste of time, we heard about tribalism; we heard about roads, schools, universities, teachers, doctors, nurses, miners, students…………..
    They are all bad. OK?
    But, can you tell us what the Government is doing to prevent economy from collapsing?
    Personally, I do not care sh*t about PF, UPND, FDD, MMD………. or any other lot. I do not care about size of the belly or thickness of the dick, I do not care about who can lecture whom about leadership, I do not even…

    • …care if the convicted rapist is enjoying globetrotting at tax-payers expense…………….
      What I want to know, how I am going to feed my children.
      Any answer Hon. Kambwili?

  5. Mr Mr mR kachismba please look a few centimetres behind you and see the man in a t-shirt. You see he cant even lift his heads. Tell him also to go back to the church ad repent. His demons will confuse you

    yea yea yea yea

  6. Father Luonde Rainbow……see the log in your own eyes before you see the spec in other peoples eyes.If you fail to run a church,where do you get the authority to be criticizing the govt in a newspaper every time on matters of good governance ? Such hypocrisy should be condemned.

  7. The good father was kicked out of his own church. Well well wonders will never cease to amaze. So who is the good father representing right now in the so called grand coalition?
