Paramount Chief Chitimukulu Kanyanta Manga has said that he did not issue the statement that was released to the media quoting him as telling Patriotic Front Secretary general Davies Chama not to destroy the lovely relationships with the Tongas.

In a statement to Lusaka Times, Chief Chitimukulu described the article as total nonsense saying the article was authored by people with little intelligence and great foolishness because Bashilubemba and indeed himself could never be part and parcel to establish hegemony or ascendancy of the Tonga tribe over others.

Below is the full Statement

FREEDOM OF STUPIDITY

By Henry Kanyanta Sosala

No one can limit the freedom of expression of another person since our ability to express our thoughts and ideas is a basic right. However, freedom of expression does best when it is controlled by self-discipline, by deference and respect for others. And some of the media houses have some clever fools who because of freedom of expression have become champions of snapping, snarling and the use of foul language without any restraint whatsoever, and they have therefore become swollen-headed as the unchallenged heroes of sarcasm.

And to them some of the attributes of the ‘’freedom of speech’’ include ‘’freedom to offend’’ and ’’freedom of stupidity.’’ This is not actually stupidity in the classical sense, which is usually thought as of a very low IQ. This kind of foolishness must be distinguished from the ‘’mental retardation.’’ And this kind of idiocy has been identified with inferiority complex arising mostly from highly questionable family background.

This kind of stupidity comes with the supposed access to public media, popularity, success or displaced ambition. And according to Robert Sternberg, the stupid expert, such stupid persons believe that because they are so smart; the world does and should revolve around them. They are gripped by the omniscience fallacy. They are convinced that they know more than everyone else and can influence public opinion to their advantage and that others are just big idiots whom they can easily manipulate.

Here are contents of what was termed BREAKING NEWS:

DO NOT DESTROY OUR LOVELY RELATIONSHIP WITH TONGAS, TRIBALIST DAVIES CHAMA TOLD OFF BY CHITIMUKULU

Bashilubemba have distanced themselves from comments made by one PF Tribalist Davies Chama. The Royal Establishment wants to make it clear to all Zambians that if there is any tribe in the history of this country that sacrificed a lot for our independence are the Tonga people. They did not only sacrifice their wealth, over 10,000 heads of cattle were sold to buy ait tickets to send Zambian delegation to London to meet the Queen to negotiate for independence. Liso Mungoni and Nkumbula for ANC surrendered the Presidency to KK during the Choma declaration on merit to pave way for independence.

“Bane bushe takwaba abangalembako history ya independence yesu for our young generation to know,” the chief wondered.

We can’t take away anything from the Tonga people. Tongas have a justified reason to keep the democratic rights of this country in check to ensure their investments in our independence is worth while. We must value their contribution, lets face it, in the history of our country no tribe has been this United for one purpose as the Tonga people. Zambian democracy from Kaunda to Lungu has been kept in check by our Tonga brothers, deny it or accept it.

We therefore request political parties such as the Patriotic front to settle there political scores without involving the Bemba people. Comments from Chama are uncivilized and can only come from unprogressive mind that want to take is in delirium. Young man we have come a long way, politicians can’t divide us.

The clan is nothing more than a larger family with its patriarchal chief as the natural head and the union of several clans by intermarriage and voluntary connection constitutes the tribe no politician can break this bond, I have several Tongas married to Bembas and vice versa. Ultimately, we actually all belong to only one tribe, to Earhings.

There is only one superior tribe in Zambia, that’s the Zambian Human race which is blind to province, regionalism or colour. Emphasized CHITIMUKULU.

 

All the above is absolutely TOTAL NONSENSE, and this article was authored by people with little intelligence and great foolishness because Bashilubemba and indeed myself can never be part and parcel to establish hegemony or ascendancy of the Tonga tribe over others.

And unfortunately, the worse part that this article has generated is confirmation of what other people fear if the Tonga were in power. There is a terrible distortion of facts that sets the Tonga far above other tribes, for example, Liso Mungoni and Nkumbula for ANC surrendered the Presidency to KK during the Choma declaration on merit to pave way for independence. This is far from truth. Mr. Harry Nkumbula was the President-General of Northern Rhodesia African National Congress, Mr. Kenneth Kaunda was the Secretary-General and Mr. Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe was the National Treasurer. Goodwin Mwangilwa wrote:

‘’On 24th October 1958, the crucial day that the conference sat, the young Congress men took Nkumbula to task for his accusations against Kaunda. Kapwepwe then broke with Nkumbula by announcing his resignation. He told Nkumbula, ‘I have discovered you cannot lead up to independence. I must step out. Mcpherson writes, ‘Between 15 and 20 fellows from Chipata, the North, the Central province and the Copperbelt rose and followed Kapwepwe. One hour after KK walked out with one or two more’.’’ (Kapwepwe Diaries).

And that was the end of Mr. Nkumbula’s journey to State House. Dr. Mbita Chitala in Not Yet Democracy wrote:

“In August 1971, Kapwepwe resigned as Vice-President and formed United Progressive Party (UPP). UPP posed the most serious threat to UNIP’s hegemony. And on 25th February 1972, Kaunda announced that the one-party state was essential to preserve unity. On 13 December 1972, Kaunda signed the legal documents that ushered in the Second Republic.”

It was then that UNIP decided to absorb all the institutions into itself and that was how the Choma Declaration came to pass, it was the swallowing of ANC (a moderate party) into UNIP and Mr. Mungoni Liso was appointed a Member of the Central Committee. And there was no Chinsali Declaration because as Dr. Chitala pointed out, ‘’UPP posed the most serious threat to UNIP’s hegemony.”

And on the issue of Mr. Davies Chama, I cannot see why we should jump on it at this point when it has died down and I totally refused to comment on it when it was fresh.

In closing, I wish to express my deep disappointment for a group of disgruntled individuals to put the name of the Bemba Royal Royal Establishment and indeed myself into such embarrassing disrepute. And I also wish to emphasize that the distorted article has sent very wrong signals to many Bembas since it is a clear deliberate political gimmick to put a wedge between PF and the Bemba Royal Establishment, just coming out of deadly deadlock.

  1. How come most statements which first appear in the media purporting to come from The Chitimukulu are later trashed as hoax/false. May be the Bemba Royal Establishment (BRE) must re-align its PR department. There are so many people out there claiming to speak on behalf of Chitimukulu. This is not the first time.

      The bottom line for any civilised society MUST be that anyone can be president irrespective of tribe.

    • No way can this article be the chiefs’ because now its clear that its meant cause a lot of divisions in Zambia.

      All I can see that stands out in this article is the word “STUPID and STUPIDITY” all the way through. Having followed the Chitimukulu the great ‘s wisdom or lack of it, his messages are always subtle but to the point and devoid of demeaning words such as stupidity.

      This article has been writen by a BRE self imposed spokes person paid by PF knowing very well that it will take time for Chitimukulu to allowed to clear this PR mess if PF machinery will even allow him at all because he hs proved to totally damaging to the popularity of the party since its ascendancy to power.

      Folks not to worry PF has run out of lies to tell the people.

      What ever any PF minion…

      What ever any PF minion says the direct opposite is the absolute truth. By tomorrow we shall hear the Chitimukulu himself exculpate himself so he can be vindicated once and for all.

      What ever the case that statement by who ever coined on behalf of the Chitimukulu has hit home in PF circles and send a clear message that the people are not happy with PF at all.

      Viva UPND , HH and his team.

    • This is a false article. it cant be authored by an intellectual in bashilubemba kanyanta sosala. far from it. the language itself says its authored by the same kind of person it is talking about; it is issued by the types of sunday chanda not the chitimukulu. we will wait for his response over this. the trick is to cause so much confusion around the first article which was more factual and less devisive. if it is by some mental disease that has befalling the chitimukulu, im sorry the nearest hospital he should seek attention is chainama.

Infact the first qouted statement is full of maturity than the stupidity this chief is Hallucinating. Infact his statement makes no sense but fueling more tribalism. Was this ka chief paid to come with this verbal stupidity or its Just a Hoax letter again as it qoutes nobody. Iam so disappointed with this man????????

    • Between the two articles the first sounds plausible because its reconciliatory & unifying unlike the divisive & demeaning second article. 1st was in fact a recorded video from the horses mouth (BRE spokesman) not text & even surprisingly aired on ZNBC not Muvi or Prime TV! It only had wisdom nothing to do with establishing hegemony or ascendancy of the Tonga tribe over others.

      Since there are two conflicting statements & one published only on Lusaka Times, His Royal Highness Chitimukulu is the only person who can put to rest this tribal hatred circus by physically appearing on Live TV disputing or confirming one of the sides of the evolving tribal hatred.

    • South Africa’s King Dalindyebo goes to jail
      A South African king who is a nephew of the late Nelson Mandela has begun a 12-year prison sentence for kidnapping, assault and arson.

      King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo reported to prison after his legal attempts to overturn his conviction failed.

      The case against King Dalindyebo was related to a dispute he had with some of his subjects about two decades ago.

      He comes from the Thembu clan, to which Mr Mandela, South Africa’s first black president, belonged.

      He is the first monarch to be jailed in South Africa since minority rule ended in 1994.

      King Dalindyebo, 51, ascended to the throne in 1989, and has about 700,000 subjects.

      South Africa has 10 officially recognised monarchs representing different ethnic groups and clans…

    • Oh dear, now I’m confused. After all the praise of the Chitimukulu that first article generated, and only to be zeroed out by this garbage spewed forth, it leaves you rather confused, if not concerned and worried. There has to be a hoax between the two, and reading between the lines, I suspect this second attempt has Mr Davis Chama’s blessing himself.

      For starters, the first article never promoted any Tonga hegemony or even claimed to do so. It was an attempt at appreciation of a people’s contribution to present Zambia. So where did this article derive it’s vitriol and venom from? And notice the reference to the ‘deadly‘ standoff… Is this referring to Mr Sata as a casualty? Shocker!

    • The initial article that was supposedly attributed to the Paramount Chief had a flow of thought. It was also sensible and sounded more authentic and uniting. This new so-called article from Bashilubemba is more provocative and undiplomatic. It also sounds more personal in its attack on HH and I think GBM. If it is really true that the Chitimukulu wrote this, then all the wisdom most people attributed to him will be withdrawn and more other tribes will lose respect of him.

      From what I have noticed in the past, the Chitimuka has a healthy relationship with HH and I doubt he would say these above things in this article. Mr Chama is the one who has been dividing the nation. It makes more sense for any chief in Zambia to rebuke him (Chama). Thats why the “original” article seems to make…

  3. This looks like the Chief’s writing. Those of us that have followed him and his past articles know his writing style. It is kind of scholarly with references as in the one above.. The previous one was highly suspicious and a deviation from his writing style.

    I would not be surprised if that article that made headlines was authored by someone who is disqualified by the new constitution to be a President, Running Mate , MP or even a Councilor because he does not have a Grade 12 certificate.

    • @Bootlicker
      It was claimed the statement was authored by some BRE spokesperson on behalf of the Chitimukulu. Bottom line is there are just too many self-appointed BRE spokespersons, some of whom reside in Lusaka and Copperbelt. Time and again we have seen uncouth characters masquerading as envoys, sent by some powerful Chiefs, loitering around government and parastatal offices looking for job opportunities, contracts and business opportunities.

AS SHILUBEMBA HAS IMPLICITLY, POINTED OUT, IT’S THE SCRIBES WHO WILL FERN CIVIL WAR IN ZAMBIA DUE TO THEIR CARELESS WRITING FOR MONEY FROM POLITICAL PARTIES- ESPECIALLY OPPOSITION ONES.

Guys please change, stop using insults every time. You don’t insult someone just because he does not agree with you.

IT IS UTTER STUUPID ON THE PART OF CITIZENS/VOTERS NOT TO QUESTION THE WEALTH OF A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS SO DUBIOUS AND HAS NEVER BEEN DECLARED. LET’S HONEST WITH OURSELVES HH’S SOLE PRESIDENTIAL AMBITION IS TO COME AND FORTIFY HIMSELF IN THE CONTEXT OF HIS UN EXPLAINED WEALTH SO THAT NO ANY INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS COULD QUESTION HIS SOURCE OF WEALTH. NO WONDER HE IS ALWAYS FRIEND OR TRIES TO BEFRIEND THE POWERFUL ANGLO-AMERICAN CONGLOMERATE. THE OTHER AMBITIONS COME SECOND OR DO NOT EXIST AT ALL.

      Mr. Washanga charged that the Bemba Royal establishment will not allow itself to be dragged into…

  18. This man usually sounds intelligent when he writes. This feels so disjointed and childish. Maybe let him just make a recording, in fact a video so we see him saying whatever he wants to say. Otherwise if the original was a fabrication even this denial could be a fake.

  19. If this article is true then am vindicated….I really doubted seriously “that wise article (the first one) coming from the northern part, it was going to be a myth to me….I cannot remember any wise counsel that has ever come from the north. I remember how PF in opposition was physically wiped by the chitimukulu then. He is known for always siding with the govt…………”

    I am Sampa Bwalya, a close friend and relative to the Chitimukulu. at no time did the Chitimukulu issued the above useless and clearly deliberate attempt to sway the citizens.
    The truth is that Mr Chama, Mr Sampa Kelvin have again come together to stir tribalism to its highest level. This desperation by the PF will cause this country to be in flames. The PF Leadership is extremely desperate.
    After accusing the Tonga Chiefs, they have now decided to accuse the Mwinelubamba. I challenge ZNBC to play the full video about what the Bemba Chief said concerning Chama’s dangerous tribal remarks without editing it as we saw on ZNBC two days ago . The truth brothers and sisters is that Mr Chama was heavily condemned by the chief over his tribal remarks. Mr Chama…

  23. The PF is so desparate that they are now writing their own articles and accuse the chiefs of saying them. Dont be surprised when u see this on Tumfweko, ZNBC, Zambian Reports, and on Times of Zambia and Daily Mail. The PF has now resolved to be paying K50,000 to each of those who publish the propaganga like the one above. I challenge the Lusaka Times if they have not received K50,000 from Davis Chama and Kelvin Sampa to publish this propaganda.

  35. Whilst the previous article had a unifying tone this one gives me shivers. Let us not go that route, this is a dangerous route that threatens our togetherness. I doubt this statement is from the Paramount Chief. Very sad developments that needs to be checked and nipped in the bud. Clearly the quality of leaders we have pose a great danger to our society and integration.

  36. When we challenged the wisdom in yesterday’s article some people called us names! There was wisdom in that article just there isn’t in this one either!! Both article appear undiplomatic and aimed at smear campaigns against UPND and PF but unfortunately using ethnicity. This cannot come from the Paramount Chief even yesterday’s article lacked the merit to have been authored the Paramount Chief who we know had been a columnist for the Post hence a prolific writer who could not just people unconnected ideas and thrash them for public consumption. In the mean time, one way to reduce on this tension is to know the TRUTH about the issue of what HH complained about against Times of Zambia.It is over 120 hours, waiting for HHto punish those fanning tribal divisions in our beautiful country!

  39. This tribal talk could easily explode into something nasty, if it is being perpetrated by politicians may the Republican President please strongly condemn it unreservedly and with the contempt it deserves. Unfortunately, I have this feeling that it is the tribal talk is part of the electioneering strategy and could be coming from the intelligence community within the ruling party. This is because the PF Secretaries and their media have been the most persistent perpetrators of the tribal talk. As Zambians we are fed of such retrogressive politics! !

But they stollen enough and should allow a real president to rule and develop the nation. the nation has reached its max to allow more corruption hence ba PF now getting loans to pay loans. even at an individual level its unacceptable.

  48. As a sensible person I can see that this statement by the Chitimukulu now makes more sense than the nonsense peddled earlier. But of course my less gifted brothers, UPMD cadres, will cry foul because any sensible thing is nonsense to them and vice versa.

    But what have I always said about UPMD and its leaders? I repeat, they always shoot themselves in the foot when it matters most. Look at HH, it is more than 72hours now and he has not sued the Times of Zambia. What does that mean? It means that he did phone and utter those tribal words to the tonga chiefs. And the chief must have warned him that if he sues he should be ready for the consequences because as chief he will tell the truth. And the result? Of course HH has shot himself in the foot once again, and many more shots into his…

Whom do I aim to kill, Lungu, Chama and Mumbi Phiri!

  53. Can all well meaning Zambians vote out every politician spearheading tribal politics. Which tribe is superior in Zambia if I may ask? Yesterday, our own famous Sunday Chanda even used the Article on Chief Chitimukulu to castigate HH, all of sudden we are told the chief did not say those words. Who is fooling who here? The authors of both articles on Chief Chitimukulu are known, why can’t Govt take them to task? This article has potential of dividing the nation. This is how genocides start therefore it is the responsibility of Govt to ensure there is peace and unity among ALL citizens.

  54. HH and his perpetual UPND losers have just come to realise that whilst they been insulting President Lungu and PF Government without any reason and creating fantancies on flimsy strategy which is so shaky to win the the 2016, President LUNGU has been working quietly to bring the much needed development and now it is evidently clear that President Lungu is winning by not less than 64% of the total cast vote.
    We will not forget that when Mazoka died, HH and UPND clearly made it loud and clear that it is a party for Tongas only and HH never denounced this! Munkombwe in 2015 January campaigns said its time for a Tonga to rule. And now HH has affirmed this tribal thing by castigating Chiefs that welcomed the PF Secretary General in Southern Province and lambasting them for having welcomed…

  58. This new story has the correct history, not the lies in the first story about 10,000 herd of cattle being sold to send imaginary nationalists to Britain to talk about independence. If this is what UPND wants – rewrite history in order to get to State House by imagining events that didnt take place, then Zambia is in maningi trouble. Some of us have lived the life before independence, after, the first republic, the third republic and the multiparty after 1990 and are still alive now through Chiluba’s, Mwanawasa’s, Rupiah Banda’s, Michael Sata’s and now Edgar Lungu’s governments. We know what happened.

  59. Notice the double standard by some of our Bemba brothers and sisters. The were full of praise of the first article and it’s alleged author, the Chitimukulu, praising him as the greatest and wisest chief, since King Solomon. Come the rebuttal, now the same people are condemning the same article and it’s purported author, at the same time praising this ‘new’ one by the Chitimukulu. These are apparently the intellectuals, Zambia’s brightest minds. They can’t even notice their own contradictions… They were praising just because it’s their chief who was talking. You wondered why the country is stagnant.

  61. Oh dear, now I’m confused. After all the praise of the Chit!mukulu that first article generated, only to be zeroed out by this [email protected], it leaves you rather confused, if not concerned and worried. There has to be a h0ax between the two, and reading between the lines, I suspect this second attempt has Mr [email protected] [email protected]’s blessing written all over it.

    For starters, the first article never promoted any T0nga hegem0ny or even claimed to do so. It was a positive attempt at an appreciation of a people’s contribution to present Zambia. So where did this article derive it’s vitri0l and ven0m from? And notice the reference to the ‘[email protected]‘ standoff… Is this referring to Mr [email protected] as the casualty of the standoff? Sh0cker!

    This is according to radio Mano, that was Tuesday. These are the people on the ground. Like I said earlier I doubt a man who resisted Sata would write such drivel. However If we confirm this this rubbish was written by him then I am afraid I might have to start calling him names.

It will not bring prosperity to the nation of Zambia. Mr Hakainde Hichilema if you truly made the statements to which this current debacle is attributed, please applogize and replant your political move. However Mr Lungu it is undeniable you have the instruments to put this to an end.

  67. We are relived. The idea that Bemba’s can be so manipulated by one person is not a good thought.

    Chief’s right about Media Pyschos using their freedom of speech to deny others of their proper opinions and proper self representation. Much as it doesn’t do one good to entertain such folk by issuing media ‘self defence,’ it is relevant in this case. We were certainly beginning to see him in a disappointing light especially since the history leading to him taking up his rightful place. Why would one bite the hand of the one who put things right! Well done Sir. But why are you sitting on a Crock??

They are not politicians who are out to win some and lose some but they stand to guide their subjects on co-existence in harmony! Politics must off itself from traditional royalty and governance and traditional rulers must not fall prey! Most traditional leaders worth their salt speak through an appointed courtyard representative! Recipe for abolition of chieftaincy and chiefdoms is nigh!

I DON’T THINK ZAMBIANS ARE THAT DULL TO LET HH DESTROY THE COUNTRY BY ELECTING HIM INTO POWER. ZAMBIANS ALSO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO FIND OUT WHETHER UPND IS NOT TRIBAL BY NOT ELECTING HH AND LET GBM TAKE OVER NEXT YEAR AND SEE IF UPND WILL REMAIN INTACT.

I told you country men & women previously that as we go towards the general elections, the likes of these pfools lunatics sangomaz wil do anything just to be embraced by the majority. Now its the oposite thing, as God wil never be mocked! Patriotic Zambians are really tired of their percieved & thwarted 25 evil plans against the inocent HH. They’ve actually now started decampaining for themselves & thats how God works! The Zambian majority have probably seen for themselves & they wil respond through their ballot boxes this august period! Mean while, HH aleisaaa..
