Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili

THE United Party for National Development (UPND) has the potential to divide the country because of its consistent tribal remarks, Chief Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has said.

Mr Kambwili said it was unfortunate that UPND and some traditional leaders always made tribal references on various matters.

Mr Kambwili, who is Information and Broadcasting Services minister, was reacting to statements that the Government had retrenched senior civil servants, especially police officers who were perceived to be supporters of the UPND and were also Tongas.

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema said on his Facebook posting this week that the party continued receiving reports of a number of civil servants, especially in the police service, teachers, health workers and others claiming victimisation for their alleged allegiance to the opposition party.

Chief Mukuni was quoted in yesterday’s edition of The Post newspaper claiming that senior police officers who had been retired in national interest on the Copperbelt were dismissed from their work because of they were Tonga.

Mr Kambwili said it could have happened that 70 per cent of those retired were Tongas and Lozis



Mr Kambwili, however, said the Government was not fixing anyone based on which region they hailed from.

The minister said it was unfortunate that UPND and some traditional leaders continued to make tribal references whenever they were aggrieved.

“UPND is a very dangerous organisation because it keeps making tribe an issue. The issue of tribe is paramount in every debate for them,” Mr Kambwili said.

He said given an opportunity to rule the country, UPND could do Zambia a de-service by dividing the nation.

Mr Kambwili said that UPND and any traditional leader should stop making such remarks that had the potential to divide the country.

He said the Government retired some senior police officers recently in a bid to reorganise the service.

Mr Kambwili said it could have happened that 70 per cent of those retired were Tongas and Lozis because naturally, historically, more Tongas and Lozis have been employed in the service in the past years.

This was because the Police Service was more prominent in Southern and Western provinces when it started in Zambia.

Mr Kambwili also said the Government would not fail to reorganise the public sector for fear of being seen to be victimising people. He urged Zambians to dismiss tribal utterances because they had the potential to destroy peace in the country.

Mr Kambwili said Government wanted all Zambians to be happy because there was no tribe which was superior to the other.

The Government had said that people should not be misled by politicians who were going round taking advantage of the country’s economic hardships saying that the ruling party has failed to govern. Mr Kambwili said the Government acknowledged the economic challenges the country was going through and it was doing everything to ensure that the economy was back to normal.

He said the challenges that the country was facing was as a result of the drop in copper prices on the global market.

Mr Kambwili said that Zambia’s economy depended on copper and that diversification was needed to strengthen it.

  1. I agree with Kambwili that Police service, including Zambia army, was most dominated by Lozis and Tongas, and still is, that’s the ZP are so brutal… Bembas as usual stayed in Copperbelt as bus-callboys (ba kaponya), drinking and stealing like crazy. If a ZP want to get to bottom of investigations, they better ask a drunk Bemba woman, go straight to Mumbi Phiri she will tell it all.

The same thing can happen at ZRA, ACC, UNZA,Mulungushi University e.t.c because Tongas are more prominent……..as for how it came to be,that’s for another debate.

    • The problem with Bemba tribal¡sts like Chimbwili is that they are at the forefront of victimisation of other ethnic groups. When the others protest the victimisation, the Bembas turn around and claim that the victims are threatening to divide “the nation” by exposing Bemba tribal¡sm. These Bembas are dangerous; they are the Hutus of Zambia. Look at Burundi. Bembas should be kept from corridors of power forever. They are masters of chaos.

    • So Nostradamus you are so antiballistic in you response here. I think Kambwili is more diplomatic than you … he is more mature compared to your blatant insults based on tribe… calling a whole tribal grouping (ba kaponya), drinking and stealing like crazy. Is this the calibre we expect from you noble UPND supporters. Is this the future of Zambia. Are the Bembas who are in the majority expected to drop their heads and support a Tonga for president after reading your blog. Bemba will continue to dominated Zambia no matter you insults and hatred… you will never rule Zambia with this kind of Tribalism…Never. Not until you stop insulting Bembas.

    • I have time and again said it here that what ever gibberish any PF stooge spews the total opposite is the absolute truth.

      When ever PF minions feel threatened by UPND ‘s ever growing political fortunes they cry tribalism and yet for the first time in the history Zambia PF had an all Bemba cabinet and justified it. If Zambians could not see that as mare tribalism, then Zambians are a million miles away from civilization.

      Whether PF likes it or not Kuyabebel in 2016.

      2016 please vote UPND to restore Zambia.

      If Tongas & Lozis dominate Zambia Police Zambia Army, ZAF, ZRA, ACC, UNZA,Mulungushi University how come the heads or Commanders of these institutions are mostly Nyanja or Bemba Speaking? Apart from Zambia Police that had Zunga Siakalima, Darius Kalebo (Tongas) & Stella Libongani(Lozi), Ngangula(Luvale) & F Kabonde & Mateyo(Kaonde) As IGs & Generals Malimba Masheke(Lozi) ,Chinkuli (Lenje) & Paul Mihova(Luvale) as Army Commanders as well as Shikapwasha (Lenje) & Sunday Kayumba (Kaonde) as ZAF commanders.

      The rest have rotated around Nyanja & Bemba Speaking people namely: Generals P Zuze, Christon Tembo, Nobby Simbeye, Mibenge, Sakala, Mumbi, Chisuzi, Musengule, Chimense, Garry Kalenge, Hanniah lungu & IG Martin Malama have headed ZA & ZAF & ZP.

      Pliz add to the list if u hav any facts.

      So u see the statement is not true. Lozis & Tongas don’t dominate these institutions. Its only a ploy to continue discrimination against them. Argue with facts if uhav any like I hav done?

    • Firing senior police officers 70% of whom are from one region is tribal no matter how you look at it.A wise government wouldn’t have made such a move at a time like this.We would like to see the records that Zambia Police are mostly made up of Tongas and Lozis

  5. It could be that HH himself is a very good leader. But the people of Southern province. Awee…!!! Niyoopa maningi because if by chance HH became president, awe sure, all Tongas would be presidents also. Our State House would also be hijacked by Tonga empire. That is why i could not vote for a Tonga in State House. May be in future when Zambia becomes civilized like America.

    • Your fears are unfounded and you are simply tribalistic and myopic. Do you think Tongas are so power hungry than what people have already seen from previous and current regime. Do you think it is good for this country to discriminate others on account of tribe. Do you think that this kind of discrimination is the sustainable way of keeping peace in this country. Continue thinking and acting like this and see where you will take your country. You have no reasons not trust your fellow country men if you understand national unit. If it is good to have Some Tongaz as Ministers, BOZ Governors and they deliver what is wrong to have them as presidents. Don’t be selfish because you will destroy this country. It is for all Zambians and not only your tribe.

  6. Its correct for all Tongas to vote HH and wrong for other tribes to vote their own. No PF material or masg in southern but UPND material can be found anywhere. These are the pipo you want to be presidents. lets safe Bembas from mascre by saying no to Tongas untill they grow

    • @peter I have always warned you guys not to play with tribalism.Tribalism has been there for a very long time in Zambia.one white man documented it but this book can not be found in Zambia.I had a chance to read it when I was in university in Zimbabwe.It is a shame that it has continued despite same level of inter marriages and education.To be particular Chiluba and Sata both Bemba dialects planted a bad seed of tribalism.Sata went feather to institutionalize it.The Tongas,Lozis,Kaondes,Luvales,Mbundas and such people have victims of tribalism since Independence.Kaunda made sure Nyanja was used as media of instruction at Lilayi police college.Chiluba through Pro Mubanga Kashoki come with a document called the Bembanisation of Zambia.Sata come to implement.

    • Peter, everytime I’m about to step up to UPND the comments from the supporters threaten me. I really believe most Tongas believe that HH ruling will give them an opportunity to have an upper hand compared to other tribes, but I know this is not true but simply their own misconception and perception. However, is it safe to allow this kind of thinking and the lot that believe in it? That really scares the living lights out of me, fairly or not!
      Even bringing up issues like those fired were mostly Tongas and Lozis is very scary. We need to be more sensitive and stop analysing everything with tribal spectacles.

  8. Edgar Lungu’s decision to appoint this useless Roan MP as a minister was a grave error; Kambwili has always divided Zambian tribes therefore he is a danger to our peace and stability.Kambwili,Davies Chama,Mumbi Phiri and Mwenya Musenge are bent on causing chaos in the nation; Edgar Lungu should tame these characters urgently.

    MY APPEAL IS THAT LET THE POLICE DEAL MERCILESSLY WITH HH AND HIS GBM WHO TAKES VIOLENCE WHERE EVER HE GOES. LET ALSO THE POLICE DEAL WITH UPND CADRES SO THAT OTHER YOUTHS CAN LEARN THAT IT DOES NOT PAY TO BE USED AND ABUSED BY POLITICAL LEADERS.

    AS FOR THE TONGAS THEY WILL STILL CRY IN 2016. GOD BLESS

This is injustice which God is against, no wonder you have faced difficult to rule because you don’t have blessings from God. As party in power, you are supposed blame anyone from pf and upnd with tribal remarks, then God will bless you . You start tribal remark to UPND /Tongas and when they respond you accuse them of tribalism. God will answer the victimized in an appropriate time. Use this power to unite the tribes. Every chief has the right to protect his subjects, If Tongas are victimized by the ruling part , don’t expect a normal chief to smile. Unity is part of development ,without it we cant unite. Tongas gave power to KK if you don’t know, in 1991 Tonga gave…

It seems this tribalism is deeply embeded in the modus operandi and DNA of the trio. Why do we get such statements from PF members like lubinda, luo, katema and many other PF members? Where is the leadership of the PF to quell a potential civil war which these elements are slowly but surely courting? PF is a gud party but these characters are denting its image…let something be done.

  24. PF practice tribalism but accuse others of tribalism. They pay lip service to tribalism but practice it. The firing of all tonga officers is a good example of tribalism. PF is a very dangerous party which should not be left to rule this country beyond 2016. Empty calabashes like kambwili are loose canons who should be kicked out of government as soon as possible. Why should one region be regarded as tribal when Luapula, Muchinga and Northern provinces always vote for their own?

    (2) Tribalism and Regionalism;It is a known truth that UPND is a tribal and regional party. HH’s encouragement of tribal talk like chuundu chaitwa has gone on to vindicate him as a tribalist.
    (3) Ocultism; HH has not done enough to shrug off the Shetanism tag on him.Many people still believe HH is a shetanist and this was worsened by his opposing of prayer.

  37. Is Kambwili normal? Where in H.H’s post on his facebook does he mention tribe? This Kambwili, and his fellow mental block colleagues Mumbi Phiri and Davies Chama only think about tribes. These are the biggest tribalists, people who feel other tribes can not rule this country, who said Zambia is all about Northern, Luapula, Muchinga and Eastern Province? You could hear from Sata himself Levy was from a small tribe, what’s wrong with these people? Let’s think positively, we have many dialects and tribes let everyone feel at home are Zambian.

Kambwili youre the one who called the people from NWP to have come from the buttocks, your musician called tongas worse than a chicken. surely how do you expect such people to look at you. the fact of th matter is we have bad and good elements in each tribe. we have thieves who are lozis, chewa, luvale etc even bemba but we have good men and women from all these tribes, failure to see this is not only being myopic but utter stupidity. i challange Kambwili, Chama and their woman cheerleader Mumbi who has water where a brain must have been to come out in the open to tell us if God was foolish to create other tribes. anybody who speaks tribe, i disassociate myself including my tribe-mates.

  44. Mr. Kambwili, this is HH’s statement in full. Where are his alleged tribal remarks?
    “We keep receiving reports of a number of civil servants, especially in the police service, teachers, health workers and others being victimised over their alleged links to the UPND.
    Most of them are being transferred and even dismissed from their jobs which we believe is really unfortunate.
    At a time of massive job losses in many sectors, it is really inhuman to keep dismissing professionals from their jobs or victimise them purely on alleged links to our party.
    We want to assure that all those being dismissed will be brought back and their benefits restored.
    We promise to run a professional civil service that will be well renumerated and no one will be victimised over trivial issues such as their…

  47. sam lindo your candidate HH will lose even in southern province he has nothing to tell the pipo what he will do,when the economy was okay during RB pipo opted for Sata coz he gave clear balance and checks now your president is busy talking about leadership in state house and only wants to go to state house to do what?ECL has gathered the confidence to go face the miners tell them what has caused that, HH does not talk about the privatisation and pipo knows it is him that sold the mines.pipo are not blind or deaf they have seen the efforts the gvt is making in aliviating poverty

    • @ JUBA JANSOMO, Are you saying HH will lose in Southern Province? That is your wishful thinking, brother. It is like you are saying next year the sun will rise in the West and set in the East. I think you don’t know how united the large majority of the people of Southern Province are. In Southern even the then mighty Kaunda used to bite the dust in election contests gainst Nkumbula.

  50. Ewe chikambwili. HH is upnd and talked about the retirement of men in uniform but didnt say they were lozi or tonga. The Chief is not a upnd member but araged that the retired officers were tonga & lozi. Now chikambwili being tribal & a cheap politician decided to conclude that HH the chief= 1 (upnd) coz thats the only thing he fears most at present.

  51. My experience on tribe: dad was an easterner, Ngoni, and mum is a northerner, bemba. So sad to say, that my bemba relatives described abaLozi as “ifiLozi, ifyafita, ifilanda ichitundu echo tatwaishiba and son on!” On my ngoni side, we had interactions with many tonga, luvale, lozi and namwanga friends/relations! Bembas, generally, are tribal, shem.
    A very dear bemba friend of mine in Livingstone, claimed that he could never vote a for a tonga, because……listen to this…..once voted in, all bembas would be deported from Southern province, and he solemnly believed it!
    The only way to allay/disprove such wild imaginations and machinations, I think, is to vote in another president from elsewhere other than eastern or northern provinces.

    • SPOT ON DEAR. BEMBAS ARE THE MOST TRIBAL GROUP OF Homo sapiens IN ZAMBIA. UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE TOO DEFENSIVE, ALWAYS SMEARING THEIR DIRTY ON OTHERS. TONGAS ARE JUST INNOCENT VICTIMS,EVERYONE KNOWS THAT.

  54. This is just human nature and the governance system you adopt only makes it worse (or better). In societies that are homogeneous it is sectarianism based either on family names or on religion. In mixed societies it is racism, etc. What triumphs over most of these problems is decentalization of authority to individuals (NOT COMMUNITIES in sub-regions). Let everyone feel they can win if they do an honest day’s work. Disband central control over electricity, over information and over cultural norms. This and many more interesting instruments will interestingly result in a stronger one Zambia one Nation.

    WA ARE ALL ZAMBIANS AND OUR TRIBE IS ZAMBIA.
    THE PROBLEM THAT I FIND IS OUR BR AND SISTERS FROM FROM TONGA LAND.LEARN THAT LEADERSHIP COME S FROM GOD.AT AN APPOINTED TIME ONE OF US FROM TONGA LAND WILL RULE THIS COUNTRY.
    LEARN TO MIX FREELY WITH OTHER TRIBES.BEMBA FRIENDS DO NOT CALL OTHER PEOPLE NAMES LIKE THE WAY WE CALL THEM.

    • @ Straight forward, It is because its founder president was a tribalist. Do you also realise that all the people talking about tribalism are from one ethnic group. I guess you can tell from their names; Mumbi, kambwili, Sunday Chanda, Frank bwalya, Davis Chama. Useless tribalists.

He should just start preparing to live out the rest of his destructive obese life, in exile, as a refugee like Shansonga.

  62. unless some tribes were not founded on clans i still know of some regions where identity basing on clan is more significant. wherever you may hail from there’s still a village in Muchinga or Luapula i know where your ‘real relatives’ would fete you basing on clan identity.let’s do away with fooliSh pride and base intelectualisation by going to the roots.viva abena n’gandu, abena bowa, ngulube, n’goma,etc. ABASH tribalism!

  63. @Juba Jansomo while I want to accept your observations I just want to clear one thing.It is not true that the UPND electoral college that elected HH was all from Tonga land .The UPND manifesto has a provincial electoral system all the delegates from nine(9) provinces participated so its not true that only Tongas voted for HH .Unless you say people in Luapula and eastern provinces are Tonga then I will accept.Sakwiba lost because he was weak.HH had the financial muscle which has kept UPND strong and afloat up today.

God can not chose leaders like HH and tribal Tonga , u are just all *****s who are supporting HH, mind you in 2015 by-elections he was closer to LUNGu because all MMD supported him now they are going to field in MUTATI, mwanya imwe. HH now will come number three, and come 2021 a Bemba will be voted as zambian leader not Tongas, who want to dived zambia with their useless chiefs.

  66. IT IS THE PF THAT IS DEVIDING THE NATION ON TRIBAL LINES WHILE THEY ARE POINTING ACCUSING FIGURES AT OTHER PEOPLE. SINCE THEY HAVE FAILED TO DELIVER ON THEIR PROMISES, THEY HAVE COME UP WITH THIS SCHEME OF PAINTING UPND TO BE TRIBAL TO DIVERT THE ATTENTION OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE REAL ISSUES. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT IT IS ACTUALLY PRESIDENT LUNGU HIMSELF, KAMBWILI, MUMBI PHIRI AND CHAMA WHO HAVE BEEN IN THE FOREFRONT TO PROMOTE TRIBALISM. WHEN OTHERS RESPOND, THEY TURN AROUND TO ACCUSE THE VICTIMS OF BEING TRIBAL. THE PF SHOULD BE MADE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE MASSIVE JOB LOSSES ON THE COPPERBELT AND THE UNPRECEDENTED SUFFERING THEY HAVE BROUGHT ON THE NATION THROUGH THEIR CARELESS AND VISIONLESS LEADERSHIP.

    • Yes. Give a dog a bad name and then hang it! Shame on you Kambwili. Iam from eastern province and I can see that the people consistently talking about tribe are PF. I have seen HH’s statement and nowhere does he mention tribe.
      PF has failed, so they are trying to divert people’s attention from their failures by calling HH a tribalist. It cannot work. 2016 – Kuya bebele!

  67. Dunderhead!!! . . . . . it could have happened? In the US or UK a character like this would not even be made Director in the civil service. Mediocrity at its best. These are the characters people are forced to call “Honourable”. I hope the new constitution does away with such terms. Even the president should not be referred to as excellency. Our presidents have never been excellent so why force people to call them such.

  72. In 1991/1992 Dr. Ludwig Sondashi answered those who were accusing him of favouring people from North-Western Province thus: “If I don’t appoint people from my province who will?”. This was a man in the system and he saw the Northerners, Easterners, Southerners, Westerners, etc practicing nepotism. Similarly, if HH does not alert the nation about the mistreatment of people from Southern and Western Provinces at the hands of a disgraced tribalistic regime, who will? The late Kapwepwe also resigned from UNIP to form UPP alleging that his people (the Bembas) were being mistreated by the Kaunda regime. UPP was a tribal party just like PF under Sata.
