SOME organisations in Roan Constituency in Luanshya have petitioned Patriotic Front (PF) secretary-general Davies Chama to retain member of Parliament (MP) Chishimba Kambwili as the party’s candidate during the August 11 general elections.

Five organisations have written to Mr Chama asking him not to adopt anyone else or find Mr Kambwili another constituency to contest a parliamentary seat because he has done a lot for the people in the area.

Presenting the petitions to Luanshya district chairperson Gordon Siwale at Mpatamatu Sports Hall yesterday, the petitioners feel Mr Kambwili, who is Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, is their rightful candidate for the August 11 tripartite elections.

“The marketeers in Roan Constituency and widows would like to warn the Patriotic Front that they should not make a mistake to transfer our MP to another constituency,” Bertha Mwansa said when presenting the petition by widows and marketeers.

Other organisations that have petitioned Mr Chama are Maposa residents, Mineworkers Union of Zambia (MUZ) and National Union of Miners and Allied Workers (NUMAW) Luanshya branches, constituency youths and co-operatives.

The constituency co-operatives letter jointly signed by chairperson Misheck Kanyanta and secretary Frank Sinkala reads in part: “Therefore, we feel it is wishful thinking and unfair to Roan Constituency to start fantasising on who should be our area member of Parliament when we already have the one and only in the name of Kambwili.”

Copperbelt youth chairperson Nathan Chanda on Wednesday filed his nomination to contest the Roan parliamentary seat.


  1. HE Edgar chagwa lungu I take you as king solomon the wisiest king ever. King David is sata and you are his son solomon. Remember the story of two women fighting for a child. Find time to examine all constituenncies. This is no time to fix your enemies. Give pipo who they want. The better the candidate the more votes you will have.

    • why are people petitioning if kambwili is right man for the job???,,,, if he is the right man it should be straight forward

    • Running mate yashupa/yavuta after Mr Lungu said a lady shall be a running mate so Kambwili decides to stand as MP again. Kikikikikiki

    • ED reminds me more of the biblical King who became drunk with power. Like King Nebuchadnezzar methinks that 1.6% vote difference was not an electoral slam dunk, the economy has been mismanaged and the ‘writing is on the wall’.

    • Oh Please why not just state the truth and say “Kambwili petitions Chama to retain him as candidate”. Because we all know this is Kambwili’s own doing.

  2. Telyashi lyabena Roan beka ili. Balungu we mfumu yamano solomon your members of Central comt, your provincial officials, your district officials, Should not be trusted. some have been given money others want their relatives. consult widely before making any adoption. you need kambwili, mwila davies and lubinda. lm

    • indeed these have been faith PF leaders who stood firm in support of the late Sata when others decided to go where money was only to be redeemed later

  3. Comment: Its undemocratic to expose the Candidate to the voters but rather Primary elections should be done in all constituencies by all political parties so that the votes must choose a candidate of their Choice, Ngati Anthu aku Roan Costituency amukonda Kamphwili ndi ufulu wawo kutero koma zipani za Ndale zipele mwayi kwa Anthu kusankha munthu yemwe akumufuna kuti adzaimile chipani chawo pamasankho a Aphungu a Nyumba ya Malamulo, My fallewo Zambians, Vote wisely! Zambia Woyeee! Malawi woyeee!

  4. Bufi, bufi,Bufi.Its a lie .Those people were sponsored by Kambwili. No one wants him in Roan Constituency.People prefer Nathan Chanda but Kambwili wants to bulls himself as the preferred candidate.
    Ala tusheko ba kambwili mulya pafula.Ten years is a long period of time for one to serve.Nathan do not accept that you should attempt 2021.Bola Ku makana 2016 is for Nathan Chanda

  5. Thickneck Chimbwili & his games. He is the only one whose constituents are petitioning for. What makes “them” think he won’t be adopted.
    Actually if I was Kadansa I would take this as a threatening & I would drop the idyot.

  6. the end of the tribal neckless man..people don’t need him in Roan anymore..bring back Cameroon Pwele..

  7. Uko! Somebody has leaked the news that Chimbwili Kashimba will not be adopted because of his running mate gaffe! So the man has responded by kicking plan B into motion….

  8. Comment:
    Accepting the petition would be setting a wrong precedent to other constituencies.
    Parties must formulate clear electoral procedures for selecting MPs.
    This goes out to all political parties MMD, UPND, FDD, DF, UNIP, Rainbow etc
