President Edgar Lungu has directed Patriotic Front members to stop commenting on tribalism.

PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya has told Journalists that the President’s directive is in order that the ruling party is not construed to be peddling tribalism.

Father Bwalya has emphasized that this does not mean that the ruling party is peddling tribalism in the country.

He has since appealed to PF members especially senior party members to heed the presidential directive.

And President Lungu has hinted on the need for the country to legislate against tribalism and hate speech in future.

Speaking to Journalists before departure for Namibia at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport this morning, President Lungu said tribal talk and hate speech should be banished.

He expressed concern with the hate speech and tribal talk being peddled in the country.

President Lungu says hate speech and tribalism have led to civil strife and genocide in some countries in Africa.

The Head of State has flown to Namibia to attend the African Union Committee of ten heads of state meeting.

    • Comment: I quote, “And President Lungu has hinted on the need for the country to legislate against tribalism and hate speech in future” I thought we had a Lawyer at State House because if we had one he would told the nation that the Penal Code has a Section which criminalize hate speech and its attendant offshoots. Thus, he ought to have directed the Police to arrest whosoever spreads hate speech and tribalism.

    • But ba president yabah! Now we are done. That is our only campaign tool we have as a party. What are we going to talk about? We don’t have a vision first of all, we have run down the economy, people are hungry, unemployed and some have lost jobs; we don’t even know whether we are coming or going. Kaya! in august unless OP and Tomor Consulting help. But all eyes of opposition and western superpowers are on vote tallying syestem.

Zambians had put where you re now so that you act as an agonist and not as an antagonist for the 14million lives in our beautiful rich country. But well Mr presido your silence up until now speaks volume…11/08/16 judgement day…you shall be vindicated. All my best

    • Cap 87, Section 70(1) of the laws of Zambia states that: “Any person who utters any words or publishes any writing expressing or showing hatred, ridicule or contempt for any person or group of persons wholly or mainly because of his or their race, tribe, place of origin or colour is guilty of an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a period not exceeding two years.”. So what is Lungu talking about by claiming that he will bring legislation to tackle hate speech and tribalism when such a law already exists? Is he this ignorant? Just implement it and arrest Kambwili who violated it by showing contempt for people based on place of origin and tribe.

    • Tribal politics is responsible for the mess Zambia is into today, if only Zambians were sensible about electing leaders with credentials Zambia would be economically well. Unfortunately, ethnically-aligned decisions that Zambians make when it comes choosing leaders are responsible for the stagnation that Zambia is in. I feel pity for the children in Zambia, where their future is being destroyed by their own parents who elect leaders based on the provinces they come from instead of people with leadership credentials with abilities to revitalize most of the non/ poorly performing sectors in Zambia.

      With the projection that China`s economic slowdown is likely to take longer, things in Zambia will certainly be worse. One hopes that Zambians, this time around, will think with about their…

    • True leader is HH who has taken bold steps to stop this rot once and for all.

      Without HH taking action Chama would not have apologised, Lungu( me too) would have been mute upto now.

      Thanks to HH for forcing the inept of a president to reluctantly act.

      This tribal issue has even invited the UN and its agencies to watch Zambia under PF and are in the process of black listing all the peddlers of tribal hate speech. Kambwili Chama watch out!

      Currently Zambia is placed under high rating for potential genocide. Thats why HH was advised to lead on the matter by seeking the courts to intervene before it gets out of hand.

      VIVA HH AND TEAM

      Current kateka wa chalo, Lungu, must never be taken seriously, he drinks excessively, ni chakolwa wa mwangashi, (alcoholic) according to numerous reports in the media. He may remotely recall some parts of the constitution in rare moments of sobriety before a drink but immediately forget shortly after a treble scotch, in the morning!

  1. The damage is already done. We needed action against those that are involved within PF e.g. CK, batata not a directive that will not be followed. Because this vice is deeply embedded in some of your ministers and party officials it will be extremely difficult to restrain them.

    • Lungu is the most useless President ever. He was the first to call Tongas bakachema, sneering at them for having political ambitions. Lungu sees his access to microphones and national media as an opportunity to campaign for his sectarian ambitions, not nation building. His change of heart comes too late, too little. We now want retribution, not forgiveness for these dimwits.

I hope you are serious with your banning because these tribal talks were escalated by yourself and the rest of your disciples followed.

And again should tells you that Frank Bwalya, Mumbi Phiri, Davies Chama, Chishimba Kambwili etc have a bless from Edgar Lungu in all they do and say. If you look closely you notice that all people being used to play this tribal card all are from one region, look at the names.
    It is just that this tribal card is backfiring and they are now want to change course. Secondly PF as always first creates a problem then pretend to solve it and then you have cadres just like some above and applauding.

      Consistently from.2008 to 2015, the people.of.Southern Province have given PF more votes in ONE election than Luapula, and Northern Provinces combined have given UPND in THREE elections!

      Stop flying and face your tribalism. Southern province is.perhaps the only one that has had non indigenous people as.MPs and Councillors and of course many still serve as village headmen . Our young.men continue foraging and foraying for and bringing us many many beautiful Bemba daughter in laws.

  13. Kambwili didn’t mention any region nor tribe but Chikwanda did! So this directive though a bit late should be welcome as it will help to bring sanity to political campaigns. Lungu’s directive should actually be taken further after elections,whoever wins should work on legislation to ban such talk or if the ECZ has powers they can include it in the electoral code of conduct that..”any one uttering divisive words to entice voters based on regionalism and ethnicity contravenes the rules and can thus be disqualified and prosecuted”. We have heard tribal talk before not only from PF but from opposition too..”NW,Western and Southern provinces,let us unite so that we control the country”..”HH could have been president had it not been for his tribe..”,”…you suffer bcoz you voted PF…

  37. The same confused hypocrite Lungu was the first to mockingly refer to HH as ‘Kachema’ simply because he is Tonga. In short all Tongas were included in the insult. Soon after that the flood gates were open, Davis Chama and Mumbi Phiri repeated the dirty remarks about the Tongas.
    Lungu is a divisive tribalist and a danger to the stability of the country. Sometime last year he went to the Eastern Province to drum-up support for an Easterner in a bye-election and he was reported to have openly told the people to vote for the Easterner only, not outsiders.
    Who can take seriously what comes out of Lungu’s dirty mouth?

  42. These Presidential Directives are not New on Media headlines. The question then is “‘will they heed to his (President) directive? We have heard many of such directives before but have they worked? The President is a weak soldier. One would have expected him to at least punish (Fire) those peddling Tribalism to show us and the whole world that he is serious with his so called DIRECTIVES. He recently directed ZESCO to reduce tariffs did it work? He dirceted mining companies NOT to send thousands of pipo to the streets did it work? The List is endless. What a Sham of a President?

  44. Tribal politics is responsible for the mess Zambia is into today, if only Zambians were sensible about electing leaders with credentials Zambia would be economically well. Unfortunately, ethnically-aligned decisions that Zambians make when it comes choosing leaders are responsible for the stagnation that Zambia is in. I feel pity for the children in Zambia, where their future is being destroyed by their own parents who elect leaders based on the provinces they come from instead of people with leadership credentials with abilities to revitalize most of the non/ poorly performing sectors in Zambia.

    With the projection that China`s economic slowdown is likely to take longer, things in Zambia will certainly be worse. One hopes that Zambians, this time around, will think with about their…

  45. Clueless president. Cap 87, Section 70(1) of the laws of Zambia already criminalizes hate speech. What kind of lawyer or is it dancer is Lungu? If anything he should have fired these people a long time ago than this last minute attempt to patch up things. Lungu is the weakest and most compromised president Zambia has ever had. The presidency is too heavy for him. The man cannot make tough decisions demanded of this post even if it simply requires firing a deputy minister.

  46. People, people, just how come only ‘Bembas’ like Chishimba, Chama, Chikwanda, Bwalya and Mumbi have just noticed tribalism in Tongas? And why now? Satan was the worst tribalist and the above yapping tribalism were actually the product of this tribalism including the so called sympathy vote. What sympathy? This too was a tribal vote by the northerners and easterners. So just shut the fcuk up and work!!!

  49. The campaign strategy of PF since the days of Data has been tribalism and use of the Catholic Church. Mum is Catholic and Bemba ; ,unfortunately for the poor lady she has believed the lies of PF. She doesn’t understand that the roads etc are from Euro bond kabobs and that Zambia is once more a HIPC.

  50. Now this PF has run out of people to speak on its behalf. How do they allow this deserter of a priest to speak to the press on behalf the Chagwa wagwa? Not sure if the party is still there or it has technically been taken over by the hyenas form MMD and ABZ.

  56. But tongas/upnd supporters are very selfish people. They can’t/ will never accept any wrong doing. I have seen the comments here. They are only condemning kambwili and a few others for pointing out the truth forgeting that they breath and live the same vice. Problem is that they want the whole country to live by their rules and whims. ECL should have also emphasized that this vice should be outlawed everywhere including workplaces especially southern province regardless of who is involved. I work in one of the institutions in SP and am from eastern province. So am speaking from experience. They never accept that they also wrong

  57. It’s a shame that the president who happens to be a lawyer has no idea that the law he signed already crimimalises hate speech. He probably didn’t read it but signed with his eyes closed as he earlier suggested. Since now he has realised his tribal ploy has backfired, he needs to concentrate on the looming food shortages that have been forecasted for the year.

  58. When a non Tonga becomes president of UPND, the party will have no support from Tongaz. Tongaz will flock to a different party which will have a Tonga as a leader. Imagine out of all tribes in Zambia, why should people pick only Tongaz to be tribal ? Tongaz check yourselves because there is no smoke without fire.
