The opposition MMD says President Lungu will have to live with the mad he dragged his name through when he decided to pardon musician Clifford Dimba popularly known as General Kanene who was convicted on defilement charges..

In an interview MMD Spokesperson Raphael Nakacinda said the President dragged his name into the mad and now he has to live with it because of the reckless decision he made to pardon someone because he sang a song for him.

Mr. Nakacinda said the decision which he said was purely made because Kanene sang a song was a miscalculation from State House.

” The President has shot himself in the foot on General Kanene, his decision to pardon him just because the man sang a song for him was a high level of miscalculation from State House, a song is not enough to convince a person that he has reformed,” he said.

He said what General Kanene needed was for him to reform from his inherent abusive character and that the President should have focused on that as opposed to releasing him from prison before he had reformed.

Mr. Nakacinda said the President embarrassed himself when he pardoned Kanene and made him his ambassador for Gender Based Violence GBV and that he has to live with the embarrassment.

Yesterday President Lungu revoked the appointment of Mr. Dimba as GBV ambassador because of the on going court case were he is accused of beating up a woman.

    • People make such mistakes because Zambian languages have five vowels rather than twelve. So, in Zambian English for instance, “rid” and “read” have the same are pronunciations.

  1. Visionless leaders are full of mistakes.Tomorow u will hear them speaking something and after sometime they change statements.Chishimba Kambwili,Davies Chama also this hypocrite Frank Bwalya not forgetig Chagwa Lungu they are all the same.

  2. There was nothing wrong with EC Lungu appointing Gen. Kanene as an ambassador. It was done out of good will as the guy had showed signs of reformation. The President has done to revoke the appointment and this should be so. Its not the appointment of General Kenene the President has revoked. He has done it before and he will still do it in future, even today.

    • You mean whilst in prison he was remorseful of what he had done??? Then HE is gullible indeed!

      Additionally no sooner had he been released early from prison than he committed the same offence. To add insult to injury, HE took longer than necessary to disappoint “the General” despite the numerous cries from different sectors of societies!

      I think we had moron heading the nation!

  3. I think it would have been far more serious had the President meant to encourage Kanene to continue in the same way. That was not the case. Kanene lost a good opportunity and must now be kicking himself. In the circumstances it was correct to revoke.

  4. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD NOT THINK SO SLOW WHEN ISSUES ARE HOT BECAUSE THE TIME HE REALIZE THAT THINGS ARE BAD AND THEN ACTS AT THE END, WILL BE MADE A LAUGHTER LOUDLY.

    ACT WHERE THINGS ARE SENSITIVE. PEOPLE ARE TALKING A LOT ABOUT KAMBWILI AND FRANK BWALYA, THE HEAD OF STATE IS RELUCTANT WAITING UNTIL THINGS GOES TO WORSEN. THESE PEOPLE LIKE FRANK BWALYA, KAMBWILI, MUMBI, CHANDA AND CHAMA ARE JUST FINISHING THE PF PARTY AND ECL SHALL REGRET AT THE END SOON.

    • @Semeki, let me make it clear that massive voters are villagers all over the country. These people do not know about KAMBWILI and his counterparts. All they know is the president of the country. This is no other than Edgar. The same goes for HH people will not be interested to know about his team; the vote will be caste on HH without thinking of other members. So this is the truth about Zambia. It is you the knowledgeable ones who thin so, otherwise the masses do not know that.
