Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili
Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili

Outspoken Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili says most leaders of opposition political parties in Zambia are mad.

And Mr Kambwili has attacked the people of Southern Province for their alleged tribal voting saying Tongas would even vote against Jesus Christ if he stood against UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema in an election.

In a wide ranging interview when he featured on last evening’s edition of Sunday Interview on ZNBC TV, Mr Kambwili said the majority of opposition leaders in Zambia are mad people. He said the only thing remaining is to run checks to determine their levels of insanity.

Mr Kambwili explained that the opposition leaders are failing to appreciate development that the PF administration has brought because they are mad.

“These are mad people. They cannot see what we have done over the last four years because they are mad people, all we cannot know is their levels of madness,” Mr Kambwili said.

He warned Zambians to be careful with what he called propaganda against President Edgar Lungu by the opposition using the privately run Post Newspaper.

“The Post have never written anything positive about President Lungu from the time he won the adoption process for the PF presidency, that is why this is not surprising that they have now joined forces with the opposition to write negative stories right, left and centre about Edgar Lungu,” Mr Kambwili said.

He charged that the PF administration is the best performing in the region having managed to attain average GDP growth rates of above five percent.

“You tell me which country in the region has been growing at more than five percent? The average GDP growth rate in the world is around 2 percent but the PF has consistently beat that target since we came into power. In 2011, we grew the economy by 6.1%, in 2012, we grew the economy by 6.7% and in 2013, we grew the economy by 5.7% and in 2014, we grew the economy by 6.6% but we saw a reduction in 2015 as projections are showing that the economy only grew at 5.5% in 2015 because of the implication of energy shortages and low copper prices.”

“This country is full of unreasonable opposition which keep blaming Edgar Lungu for everything. If the opposition were reasonable, they wouldn’t spend all their time blaming Government for the energy crisis when the entire region is facing the same crisis,” Mr Kambwili charged.

He added, “the Energy crisis is all over the region. Tell me which country where the President is being blamed for the energy crisis, it is only in Zambia where day in and day out instead of sympathising with Zambians over load shedding, the opposition is busy occupying itself with how to get to State House even using a back door.”

“The PF has performed wonders. We can only compare it to UNIP in terms of development. It is only that Zambians are being told lies by the opposition using propaganda as you know lies travel faster than the truth. This is the reason I am saying that the opposition is a bunch of people who are mad. That is madness to blame President Lungu for everything. It is the only the level of madness that we are yet to ascertain.”

He continued, “In my language we say, Pachalo takwaba ukuwamya (On earth, you cannot satisfy everyone) and this is the reason why man killed Jesus Christ. The PF has delivered, if you threw a stone, there are 99.9% chances, it will land on a PF project.”

Mr Kambwili further castigated the people of Southern Province for what he called tribal voting.
“These people have been voting for the same party since 2001. They are so tribal such that if Jesus Christ stood against their tribesman, they would reject Jesus. If a stone was to contest against a candidate from any part of the region, these people would vote for a stone.”

On the mining job losses, Mr Kambwili said the PF Government has done very well to minimise the job cuts.
He cited Mopani Mines which he said initially wanted to cut off 8,000 jobs but reduced the number to around 4,000 after Government’s interventions.

But pressed by Presenter Grevazio Zulu over his statements that no single mine job will be lost, Mr Kambwili denied ever using that statement.

“I never said there would be no mine jobs lost, all I said what that laying off workers will be the last resorts and thereafter we directed mining companies to find ways of reducing their operational costs than reducing the labour force.

He said Zambians must giver the PF Government more time to fully implement its development programs.
Mr Kambwili said the party has spent the last four years in Government planning its development program which should be allowed to be implemented over a longer period.

“Development is not magic, it’s not abracadabra. We need more time for us to deliver.”

Mr Kambwili warned Zambians against developing a habit of changing Governments every five years.

“Changing Governments every five years can bring about political instability which can scare away investors because investor want policy stability,” he said.

  1. I think Kambwili spends too much time reading former information minister & MMD government spokeperson Dora Siliya’s note books. Or What Dora Siliti used to call PF stuck too deep in Kambwili’s head. “PF & Sata are a gang of mad people”, yaa there still some crazy original PF left.

    • This Kambwili, a representative of Edgar Lungu is a disgrace. The appointing authority should act to stop the hate speech being propagated by this man. How can he use ZNBC, a public institution supported by our taxes to attack an innocent citizen who ZNBC will not give an opportunity to defend himself. Kambwili’s display yesterday was an assault on all Zambians. One could not help but feel sorry for Grevasio. Mr President, if you are not complicity please show Kambwili the door

    • UPND just ignore kambwili’s tribal accusations. He has nothing to prop up the dwindling political fortunes of PF and the only trick he can use is the tribal tug which holds no water in all respects. Statistics don’t lie. What Kambwili wants is to cause hatred between Tongas and Bembas so that PF can be the beneficiary of the result. Just keep on posting statistics from previous elections which prove Kambwili wrong.

    • Anyone, especially people coming from outside Zambia, who have taken time to check the political debates going on here in Zambia especially on social media would think that the people of Nega Nega in Southern Province are murderers or they have caused some kind of political crime.

      This is because our friends from PF who are mostly from the North ( Luapula, Northern, Muchinga) have made Nega Nega a tool for their own political propaganda.

      They have shouted about it so hard that they have made the common mind believe that the voting pattern in Nega Nega was unique, unprecedented, and very tribal in nature, something which is not entirely true.

    • Many have not even taken time to check the figures of the election results from Nega Nega and many do not know that what is being referred to is a Poling centre and not a constituency.

      Tribal politics and tribal voting patterns have been there for sometime not only in the south but everywhere.

      But the worst kind of tribal voting was first witnessed in the Northern circuit during the 2011 general elections. The North turned up in huge numbers to vote for Michael Sata while Hakainde Hichilema was conspicuously rejected.

      This is something PF cadres will never mention; you will never hear about the Malole formula even when the voting pattern in that constituency was typically very tribal.

      Take for example in the 2011 general elections; HH got 1,350 votes from…

    • Take for example in the 2011 general elections; HH got 1,350 votes from the who Luapula province and about 2, 211 votes from Northern province (then combined with Muchinga).

      On the contrary Sata got 40,764 votes from Southern province. This was a shame and a serious show of tribalism by the people of the North.

      But what makes it even more shameful is the hypocrisy of the same people who keep talking about the Nega Nega formula when their voting pattern was more than tribal themselves.

      That is why I conclude that our brothers from the Northern circuit are politically mean. They are quick to point out other people’s tribalism leaving out their own.

    • Of course there is a growing number of brothers from the north who have come back to their senses and have come to accept the fact that after the demise of Sata, the only credible leader who can make meaningful development for the country is HH. The numbers keep growing but a lot of them are still in denial. Tribal stereotyping is still inherent in them.

      Now and again, we hear the likes of Bowman Lusambo shouting hard about tribal voting in SP. Despite being in MMD, another opposition party, Lusambo is heard more criticising HH than Lungu.

      Such is the level of tribal hate by some of these brothers. Actually, they just support Lungu for convenience; a tribal cousin to them is a lesser evil. Given an opportunity, they would have loved to have their own be at the helm.

      You have made contributions. However a lot of programs that have are maturing were started in the MMD government. As a matter of fact, you hijacked some of them and renamed them.

    • The Bible says Do not use the name of the Lord in vain. Christians should stay away from making inflamatory comments and accusations on Tribalism that segregate others but instead should be uniting the country which is called positive reinforcement according to principles of behavior change and faith in action according to the Bible. Christians need to learn from Rwanda religious leaders who were on trial at ICC for the same. Christians should refuse to be used in hate speech and should learn from the Rwanda Religious Incident because not even Christians are exempt from ICC. We need to examine our lives as Christians because if hate speech and tribal accusations are being made in the name of Christianity then either as Christians we are compromised,hypocrites, lost our saltiness, our…

      On a second thought, please dont sue him. Rather forgive and ignore him. He is representing his master. If you wanna know how your neighbours feel about you, just ask their kids. Kambwili is simply displaying his master’s desire. The fact that Davies Chama, Mumbi Phiri and Chishimba Kambwili have insulted and degraded the Tonga people and the President is just looking simply means he (Mr Lungu) approves/endorses these insults and hate speech for his leverage. Every dog has his day!! Where is Kaunda, Chiluba, Mwanawasa, RB, Sata?

    • I think we have taken this thing called peace for granted in Zambia. There is just need to fight so that this tribal hatred can cease. Look, as for me am neither tonga nor bemba but why is PF creating tension on these two tribes. Why are they trying to pull strings between two peaceful tribes. This is wrong. We are all one and there has been intermarriages since the inception of one zambia one nation.

    • Some of this tribal talk is really getting way out of hand! I feel, as political leaders, they should be very mindful of how they discuss issues of “tribe” and its politics. HH and ‘his’ UPND are no better themselves either. They have had plenty of opportunities to deal with this problem/perception of being a tribal/regional Party once and for all . But they have either chosen to keep quiet at crucial moments or done nothing when confronted with it within their ranks. So when HH/UPND talk about this issue, it sort of comes across as phony and hypocritical. It just doesn’t sound genuine. Unfortunately for UPND, other political Parties (first the MMD, and now PF) have picked up on that and capitalized.

      I think the biggest mistake UPND has made so far is to IGNORE the TRIBAL CLOUD which birthed HH’s political career. Yes, this might be uncomfortable for UPND to talk about or genuinely deal with. But by ignoring it in the hope that people will simply forget about it has been politically catastrophic to HH and UPND. People have long memories and no amount of spin will help if people don’t feel you being remorseful and repentant. To make matters worse, the voting patterns seen in Southern Province in the recent election can only make UPND’s work tough to try and exorcise its tribal tag—FAIR OR NOT, THIS THE REALITY UPND HAS TO DEAL WITH!

Now has UPND ever gotten any seat in Muchinga, Northern or Luapula, the PF strongholds, the answer is a big no…..so who are more tribal, this Leopard Kabwili’s triebe-mates or the people of Southern/Western & North-Western? Kabwili is simply a Kaponya, Jerabo cadre who does not qualify even to be councillor. He is typical tribalist whose only hope of his party hanging on to power is playing cards of tribalism.

      It is very true that Tongas cannot vote for any other person except a fellow Tonga
      They want all other tribes to vote for a Tonga but not their tribe to vote for a Bemba or Ngoni

    • Dear Kambwili, you seem not to understand the development you are referring to is the genesis of the economic ills of Zambia. Yes, the roads and other infrastructure which have been done are welcome. The major issue is that your level of borrowing is costly and the cost will remain when your political life is long gone. Which is a shame for you and your party that our children will refer to you and your party as the ones responsible for their economic suffering. On the tribal remarks nothing unusual having come from you who is so tribal that you are not ashamed to bring in Jesus, our Lord, into your strangle to remain in power. Recall do not mock our Lord.

      The fact of the matter is that PF is DIRECTLY responsible for the current power load shedding. Kafue Gorge WAS CANCELLED BY THEM as soon as they were elected. FOUR YEARS LATER they are making big noise by Lungu “commissioning” this self same project!

    • Mr. Real – multi party democracy started in 1990, the first election was in 1991. Check how the voting in southern and western provinces for FTJ’ s MMD was despite the fact that FTJ more or less usurped the MMD presidency from the first MMD chairman Arthur Wina, Mama Inonge’s husband. Fast forward to about 1994, National Party led by one Humphrey Mulemba was formed as splinter group from MMD and quite a good MMD parliamentarians crossed the floor and bye-elctions were held. NP won most areas where elections were held first in the south, west, north western and central circuit and was gaining moment. When the elections moved to Kasama/Chinsali/ Isoka East two notable casualties in was one Kapwepwe’s daughter in Chinsali (?) and bashi NONO lost due to FTJ and MCS tribal campaign -…

    • When the elections moved to Kasama/Chinsali/ Isoka East two notable casualties in was one Kapwepwe’s daughter in Chinsali (?) and bashi NONO lost due to FTJ and MCS tribal campaign -…”balehitisaha ba Bemba”. Fast forward 1996, Southern Province voted overwhelmingly for FTJ ahead of Mulemba of NP from Northwestern Province because they considered FTJ a better leader. Eastern Power voted UNIP 100% because of the Kaunda/Grey Zulu/ Kamaga factor. Come 2001. Enter UPND and Mazoka, all provinces voted for him except Luapula, Northern (now Northern and Muchinga) and Copperbelt Urban just cos he was Tonga. How many UPND MPs are in Northern, Muchinga and Luapula Province? You mean there are no good Bembas in UPND not to be voted for??

PF under MCS won its first in Mporokoso Northern Province because of it being near his home area. Do you remember the famous Rebel MPs under PF? Which constitute where they coming from? Have you seen the voting pattern of Northern and Muchinga Provinces under MCS? What difference is there between the voting pattern of Southern Province? This country is divide on tribal lines and one would expect the PF leadership will be in the forefront trying to unit the country.

Even in places where PF has structures and has delivered development which they have never witnessed since independence, they still voted for a Party that has done literally nothing for them. How do you explain this kind of behavior? FACT…HH should seriously address this Tribal issue. I was surprised to hear Munkombwe preaching at one their Rallies that its time for Tongas to Rule and HH was even laughing where he was seated instead of him showing signs of disapproval. Shame!!

Two days ago, Mr Chikwanda was telling Easterns to vote for ECL because he is their own blood, was this remark not tribalism?
    Its very clear that the tribalism remarks/ campaign is being championed by the PF as a tool to malign others who can not defend themselves through the same state media. We call upon the Republic President to criminalise Tribal remarks by any politician before we plunge the country into deeper tribal conflicts.

    • Either you’re being sarcastic or you’re just uninformed. A leader is supposed to promote unity in the country AT ALL TIMES. A leader who uses divisive language like this is a demagogue, whose only interest is in his own personal ambition. It’s such language that plunges nations into civil wars and bloodshed, especially in Africa. Even if he believes tribalism is going on, his role is not to fan the flames, or pour gasoline on it, but to promote unity, and oneness. We’re all Zambians first, and our tribes come second. We should choose our leaders not on tribal lines or party lines, but on their qualifications.

Is he aware that in developed countries people sometimes are given 1 to 2% salary increment and that means a lot. In Zambia when you give a salary increment of 10% what does that mean? GDP of 5% in Zambia and 0.1% in the USA are totally different because you are comparing a large economy to a small one. What the minister should focus on is to improve service delivery to the people rather than comparing things he doesn’t understand. PF please don’t embarrass us.

    …as a father, you can not go boasting around that you have built your family a good house…done a nice tarred drive way compounded with a good follower landscape…..bought family cars out of a bank loan which you may have no means to pay back as per agreement…meanwhile your family members apart from you look malnourished…my point is, the infrastructures widely talked about should be moving in tandem with the lower cost of living among ordinary…

    • …among ordinary citizenry…how can someone be proud of a plain record of 21% inflation from 7% within a short period..??…loosing a job is just as good as ‘being killed’…then how can anyone brag of achievement after condemning 4000 to their ‘graves’..??
      …there is what we call inappropriate examples and Jesus example is just one of it….atleast Jesus would not have stood as a Lozi, Bemba or any other tribal for that matter….i also can only imagine how Jesus would have been rebuked, insulted by the likes of Father Bwalya, Mumbi Phiri, Chama and Kambwili himself had Jesus criticised ECL and the PF for letting his people suffer….

  15. Thanks for this news ba Lusaka Times. I was really waiting for it for i wanted to air my grievances over Kambwili’s triba remarks. You see, ZNBC has become a too to demonize other tribes. And i dont know why Grevazio Zulu could fail to control Kambwili from insulting other tribes. I am a pure Bemba myself of Kasama and i dont approve Kambwili’s tribal utterances. The man is just a lunnatic who is trying to propagate war in Zambia but he wont acchieve in Jesus Name. I just want to take this opportunity to warn Chishimba Kambwili and ZNBC including the once strong but now weak one eyed man Grevazoio Zulu that there days are numbered. Very soon after 11 August this year, they are going to find themselves on the wrong side of the coin and they will have to account for tribal division that…

I feel sorry for the people he represents, surely this man is not alone and only time will tell. He seems to misunderstand the tenets of democracy hence rushing to call people mad people. The economy in their lives has been growing and they are not lacking and they are so insanity thinking it is the situation for many. I hope he sees reality this year, this chap is too fat to reason!

I want to encourage all the supporters of a progressive & better Zambia through the leadership of HH, please be calm & objective as we respond to the primitive & destructive campaigning strategies by the pf. It is very clear that pf knows that they have nothing to offer to this country in terms of sound & progressive debates to convince the Zambians to vote for them in the next general election. Ours should be a noble course, that of liberating Zambia from the social, economical etc sufferings that the Zambians are going through right now. We have no province that is tribal in Zambia but Pf is using the tribal card to help them continue been in power even when its clear they have failed to govern this great nation. So the call is let us remain united as One Zambia One Nation as we work…

We could have been thinking he was wise and hard working alas he is another Tribal baboon with politics running hot in his veins. Such chaps must one day form there own party so that the same people you keep insulting will welcome you. Its the reason the current amendment to the constitution was criticized because had we maintained the clause for appointment of minister outside parliament this CK would never ever qualify to be one.

  25. Greetings Lusaka Times Readers and Bloggers.
    I just want you to master this and prove me wrong if it will not come to pass. Yesterday, Kambwili insulted Jesus Christ by likening him to HH. Because of this, as long as the lord lives these two tings will happen to Chishimba Kambwili.
    1. His party PF will NOT win this year (2016) Elections. HH will emerge victorious.

    2. Chishimba Kambwili’s case will take him to the grave yard this year

    3. All the investment he has made in and outside the country will be taken by other people

    4. His family will experience the biggest trouble that will even cause it to disintegrate.

    Kambwili was mocking God yesterday and God will teach him a lesson.

You think you’re better than other tribes because you’re Bemba ? People like you should not even be allowed to vote until we make sure you have improved yourself in terms of basic education. Whether you like it or not, WE ARE ALL ZAMBIANS, and no tribe is better than another. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    Secondly, I was PF but i resigned yesterday after hearing Kambwili insnulting Tongas.

  29. Its tribalism when other regions vote for their own and not when PF is voted for by its own. Look at the 2011 Election results: Luapula (Sata 151,822, HH 1,758). Northern (Sata 242,455, HH 2,935). N/Western (Sata 18,790, HH 61,054), Western (Sata 43,579, HH 53,176, Milupi 21,640). When you look at these results, who is tribal? Tribalism is in the eyes of tribalists. PF has seats in Western, Northern Western and Sourthern, you call that tribalism? Sometimes it’s better to avoiding arguing with a fool who will not reason. There are no separate commodity prices for a Bemba, Lozi, Tonga, Luvale, we pay the same price, meaning that even if you vote your own, we still suffer the same effects. Come on Zambians lets grow up.

I have not head Tonga people insult other tribes in the media as they have been insulted over the years by others especially from the Northern side of Zambia. The only “crime” they have committed is that they are effectively participating in the multiparty democracy of their country called Zambia.

Symptoms include inability to reason, violent behavior and dysfunctional faculties. Watching Mr Kambwili last night call opposition folks as mad, I felt pity on the man. I was equally flabbergasted that ZNBC even calls that program an interview. As a monthly subscriber to ZNBC, I felt robbed and defiled when Zulu baited Kambwili on the issue of tribe. Gravazio knew that Hakainde was not there to defend himself and no Tonga was in the station to give a rebuttal of that rubbish and hate speech spewed by Kambwili. If Kambwili can say that on ZNBC, one is left shuddering to think about what he says about Tongas in his bedroom and private conference rooms. What a…

Mr. Kambwili, the ability of a people to change Governments after five years can be a sign of political stability which cannot scare away investors because investor want political as well as policy stability and predictability. The only thing that has been consistent about your PF govt is its policy shifts and unpredictability. Hence your are responsible for scaring away investors!

      On a second thought, please dont sue him, rather forgive and ignore him. He is representing his master. If you wanna know how your neighbours feel about you, just ask their kids. Kambwili is simply displaying his master’s desire. The fact that Davies Chama, Mumbi Phiri and Chishimba Kambwili have insulted and degraded the Tonga people and the President is just looking simply means he (Mr Lungu) approves/endorses these insults and hate speech for his leverage.

Listening to Kambwili on ZNBC last night and looking at Zulu the purported interviewer make me feel nostalgic about the days of the great Charles Mando. Kambwili spewed hatred and Zulu apparently relished it without challenging him. It made me wonder where journalists get their training these days. For a government official to call an entire people racists and a section of a society mad knowing that they would not be given a chance to defend themselves is to display the cowardice and political demagoguery of the utmost type. As a financial subscriber to ZNBC, I feel robbed and raped and if I had my way I would excuse myself and unsubscribe to the TV and radio stations that they ran.

Kaluzi despite being an imminent engineer and replaced him with Mwansa whom it is alleged printed MMD party cards while working in South Africa and it also alleged that he struggled to get his engineering qualifications.

I’m 100% sure that these are the most excited people whenever there tribesmen insult Tongas. Apart from a few mild instances from Mr Lungu, I have never head any other Zambian accusing others of tribalism the way Mumbi Phiri, Kambwili, Chama, Sampa, Chilufya, Bwalya and Chanda and guess which tribe or region they come from. They have continued speaking evil because this excites a good number of their clansmen. For them they call this politics, albeit primitive and dangerous ones. Well, things continue like this comrades never, because all that goes up must come down.

  67. Description of tribalism in Zambia is WHEN TONGA’S vote for UPND. My Zambia we can do better than this. Do you remember Genocide in Ruwanda? It started by careless people like Kambwili. The recent xenophobia in South Africa was started in Durban by one careless talk from a leader. Sometimes i think its because we have never been to war thats why we are so naive to what war can do to humanity. careless talk from leaders can escalate in to civil war. you have bloggers like @MUNENE supporting such talk. Leaders at all times should refrain them selves from any careless tribal talk that boarders on dividing one tribe from the other tribe , Kambwili should always remember that he is not the first nor the last to be minister / chief government spokes person they have been others before him…

  68. I do not normally watch interviews of Hon Kambwili to the end, but yesterday I did and was amazed at the facts that he articulated. The tri…ball tag of uPMD dating back to 2005 has been well articulated by myself so I will not dwell on it.
    Apart from that tag, HH started well with the “economic manager” slogan, but over the years it has become clear that the slogan is just that, a political slogan, it has no substance at all when you look at His subsequent and recent pronouncements. HH has now reduced himself to a level playing field with Hon Kambwili and that is why I can watch CK up to the end, I can’t really really tell the difference between CK the politician And HH the “economist”. and HH cannot complain can he? Ifyaku Iletelela humwine. See my comments following…..contd

  69. am a PF MEMBER …….BUT KABWILI’S MOUTH YESTERDAY WAS REPRESENTING HIS OWN THINKING THAT’S TOO EMBARRASSING FOR A GOVERNMENT SPOKES PERSON TO SPEAK SO CARELESSLY LIKE THAT HE IS A DISGRACE HE MUST BE SHOWN THE DOOR BEFORE HE CAUSES WAR IN OUR PEACEFUL COUNTRY

  70. ÏHH condemned the constitution amendments because
    1. He wanted proportional representation, provincial assemblies which would mean adding 90 to the current number of MPs and 900 more political jobs respectively. CK argues that these would be too expensive currently for an ailing economy which needs to take care of the less privileged, the PF would rather defer those clauses until the economy picks up. This insistence by HH and HHs insults of Lungu leads CK to close the interview by stating that with this kind of thinking, if HH is indeed an economist then he needs to go back to kindergarten. Very valid point CK, and you should have added that this is the same economist or “economic manager” who condemns the level of debt that PF government has accumulated. Now that would be a valid…

  71. Now that would be a valid point HH, but then you have now proceeded to contradict yourself by suggesting (without thinking) that a heavy national would be okay if the money was spent on financing more political offices,Manda not on roads hospitals etc. surely that is not what you meant by “economic manager” was it? Because now you are acting more like a poor political manager than a competent “economic manager”. ECONOMIC MANAGER EXPOSED.

    • No need to debate with empties like you because you have already forgotten that those are not HHs views but Zambians who submitted to your (PF) technical committee and are in the draft constitution.

  72. THE TRUTH PAINS – TONGAs only voted with the rest of the country in 1991 in the history of Zambia because their traditional enemy Kaunda stood against a human being. In fact, even when Kaunda stood against the Frog, they voted for a Frog.

  73. There was no dull moment in the interview. Facts, Facts and so on . The voting profile has been the way he pronounced it yesterday in the interview. Read the conversation between HH and the south chief and make your own conclusion. If the profile does not change, again 2016 is for the PF and second place the MMD.

  74. The LORD Jesus Christ should redeem Zambia. This level of hatred is excessive; never known except during the time of Hitler. I am truly shocked Chishimba Kambwili would go on ZNBC, a public broadcaster, to churn out hate speech. He whom the gods want to destroy first make mad.

  76. @lucy, and that is the whole point madam Lucy. If he is a true economist, HH is supposed to guide the masses that the economy currently cannot afford such extravaganza instead of going with the wind kwalola umwels and insulting more intelligent and caring leaders. If he was a properly trained economist, HH would have advised the people that we cannot afford to borrow in order to create more political jobs. Instead all he sees are votes.
    Job losses on the Copperbelt and tempers are high, HH decides to go and incite riots. That is what Hon Kambwili was talking about. And boy did he finish off his favorite underfive in style! HH was exposed as an amateur politician and kindergarten economist by Kambwili of all people! That is what has annoyed uPMD. But if I were you, I would leave…

    • This is the brutal truth about PF tribal politics exemplified by the ECZ 2011 Presidential election results (‘000):

      Northern : Sata 242,5 v HH 2,9
      Luapula : Sata 151,8 v HH 1,7 / RB 47,3 =49
      Eastern : Rupiah 233,5 v Sata 59,3 / HH 10,7 = 70
      Southern : Sata 24,6 / RB 71,5 = 96,1 v HH 268,7

  83. These are the type of people that need to be kicked out of leadership positions in our country. You talk about development in the country when everyone knows the standard of living is constantly deteriorating? Do you need a 100 years to produce results? If you do then you’re mediocre, ineffective and need to be changed. Since Lungu took over, the Kwacha has depreciated, inflation has shot up from 7% in Jan 2015 to 21.10% in Dec 2015. Prices of essential commodities have gone up. Maybe you can afford them, but the vast majority of the populace cannot. One year is enough for people to evaluate whether you’re effective or not. And calling people who don’t agree with you “mad,” is simply foolish.
