Wynter Kabimba shakes hands with western diplomats
Wynter Kabimba shakes hands with western diplomats

Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba on Monday met some western diplomats accredited to Zambia as part of their ongoing consultations with stakeholders ahead of the August polls.

Mr Kabimba described the meeting with diplomats as cordial and timely.

He said the diplomats wanted to exchange views on the state of the governance system in Zambia as the country approaches the August 11 polls.

Mr Kabimba said the diplomats approached the meeting in an open and constructive manner.

He commended the diplomats for taking keen interest in the happenings in the country.

The Rainbow leader revealed that he shared with the envoys his perspective on how Zambia has retrogressed since President Edgar Lungu took over government.

“The truth is that our cooperating partners are watching with a keen eye all that is going on here and they are concerned. Zambia has broken down since Edgar Lungu became President and they want to listen to the agenda that we have as the Rainbow hence the meeting and these meetings will continue,” Mr Kabimba said.

  1. This guy is even more credible than (HH) at least he has political experience, some loud mouth cadres will be here praising the Hakainde riff raff saying Kabimba has “copied” inviting diplomats

    • Snake bite, you’re just a serpent like your Hakainde. But face it, Kabimba has more political credibility than your Hichilema. Kabimba is not an Under 5, compared to your cretin. Turns out the diplomats are here to interact with all stakeholders ahead of this year’s elections. Hakainde was portraying the image that he can invite and entertain ‘high level’ delegates, yet they are visiting everyone.

    • 50 years after independence, the african still runs to its “former masters” to report its affairs just like a good dog playing fetch with its masters. The master gives you a good pat on the head by meeting you and you wag your tail with excitement symbolicaly by smiling all the way to our fellow citizens that western diplomats approve or consider me.
      Whats wrong with us kanshi? some of these things are so plain to see, why do you have to report to western diplomats? why not african diplomats, your own people with a thorough understanding of your situation?
      And you want to say we are independent when you volunteer yourselves to servitude.

    • @Kudos
      If your skull was not empty you would remember that Chiluba had no political experience when he wrestled power out of the so-called politically experienced Kenneth kaunda with a landslide. Kaunda had decades of experience and he was shamed. The same fate awaits your Edgar Lungu this August.

    • Kikikiki,yaba! Honestly speaking, can you compare the political violence happening in Zambia to the wars being perpetrated in Syria,Iraq,Afghanistan e.t.c by these hypocrites you’re calling diplomats? Zambia is in a better place to educate these hypocrites about peace and not the other way round.

    • @Mr Kudos: HH is seriously causing you sleepless nights indeed. What has Kabimba’s meeting with the Western Diplomats to do with UPND or HH? Instead of attacking individuals, tell us the voters what PF will do in the next five years. We have seen the roads, schools, clinics that PF has constructed in the first five years, what is PF promising beyond 2016? I wont vote for PF because Mr Kudos hates HH, no, I will vote based on whoever sells the best manifesto to the electrolate. (FDD, Rainbow, UPND, MMD, PF, DF). Always remember that not all registered voters are Cadres. In short focus on issues affecting our economy and NOT on attacking individuals, that is what mature democracies world-over do.

    • Let me give my 2 cents about this Kudu’s character. It is deluded and schizophrenic it need stop be at Chainama. How can anyone in their right senses fail to see that Edgar Lungu has failed? Edgar has broken Zambia. Today in Lusaka there is no fuel, no electricity and K105 for a 25kg of mealie meal. Truth be told, Edgar has no capacity to be president, period!

    • Is it not Mr kabimba who broke down the country. How do these diplomats even accept to meet this monster. The western diplomats should distance themselves to people who have brought misery to Zambians and kabimba is one them otherwise I will lose faith in them. In fact he is not even a stakeholder for haven sake.

  3. LT always try to be complete in your reporting of facts (News) as much as you can unlike leaving bloggers in a speculative mode. Where and when did Kabimba meet these diplomats. I feel place and time is important whenever someone is reporting even in the courts of law. Don’t rush in reporting half baked information

    • LT is finished. This is my last comment. The guys dont know how to report at all. Maybe they should ask Fred (Post Editor) to give them a few skills, like a short-course in real journalism. On top of that, LT is very biased.

  6. Development partners participation should have limits, this is becoming an exaggeration, no African countries can meet with Trump or any other leaders at the level of Ambassadors or High Commissioners. While our Opposition leaders see this as a plus, its a shame on our independence. Consultations are good but not to this degree and publicity

    • @TheEngineer, the fact that there is a swimming pool in your hotel and you don’t use it or don’t want to doesn’t mean it is not there. The fact is diplomatic protocol exists across the board and these behaviors in Zambia are not isolated cases. The fact that your diplomats spend time drinking and chasing after skirts in their lands of posting does not mean these instruments are not freely available to them… Go figure!

    • Right Wan. Other than RB and Sata may be, no ascending Zambian president had any experience at all! That is the way it has been.

      Nkumbula was more experienced than KK and Wina more than Chiluba. We now know what the so called experienced King Cobra was able to do and the rest is history …

    • African dictators have to be disciplined by their Western funders when it is clear that the dictators plan to kill their own citizens. We have seen this in Zimbabwe where Shonas killed Ndebeles in 1982 and the Hutus massacring Tustin in the 1990s. The providers of Eurobonds must accept responsibility for arming criminals like Lungu who oppress their citizens.

  13. Talkiñg about experience, I am surprised at how shallow-minded the people saying HH has now experience. H a s Wynter Kabimba been a Republican President before to have that so-called experience? Had Kaunda been President when he took over the reigns of leadership in 1964? Examples are abound. Kabimba is just as simple as any Zambian traversing the streets of this country.

  14. Nothing celebratory here. Diplomats can meet any political leader to give a balanced political equilibrium to their respective countries which, notwithstanding should not be construed to mean that they have any political inclination. Besides, how many valid votes do they have? Just asking.

  18. It’s very clear that UPND and Rainbow are very unpatriotic and constantly degrade our country. But what is strange in all this is the insistence on elections. Mid the country HAS broken down then we just shut it down and go into emergency rule until people begin to behave better. It’s an attempt to bully their way to power. It’s clear they are using Western diplomats to encourage their input in our democracy. Soon our votes won’t matter. I think they are interested in Kabimba to hear from him how he used to brutalise opposition under Sata!

    I urge PF Youths to run away when they see UPND and nonentity Rainbow Cadres approaching them in their communities. Be we’ll behaved and win hearts fir President Lungu. Open doors for young ladies,…even UPND( PROBABILY FALSE ALLEGATION…

The fight now is positively evoking Nationalist protective tendencies. We will see HH and Kabs out of our political system,…

Who, in their right senses would watch and fold their hands, seeing their wealth going up in flames. We borrowed their money, and they have a right to monitor us!

  35. Compatriot, why do we have such short memories. Kabimba was a big disaster and disappointment when he was PF Secretsry General. He was so callous and insulting to Zambians. The man grew so big headed and could not listen to anyone but himself. Do you really want this kind of a man for a president. He and his boss, Sata, contributed immensely to the misseries we now find ourselves in as a country. Kabimba was building his own empire which gladly Lungu has effectively dismantled.

    Please save our beloved country from dictators like Kabimba.

  36. LATEST: PF CADRE and Kitwe businessman Richard Chileshe has been detained at Kamfinsa State Prison after the magistrates’ court issued a bench warrant for contempt of court. In this case, Chileshe – popularly known as ‘’Chile 1’’ – is charged with threatening violence contrary to the Laws of Zambia.
    It is alleged that on July 15, 2015, Chileshe discharged a loaded firearm with intent to cause alarm to any person. He was found with a case and put on his defence by Kitwe chief resident magistrate Penjani Lamba. When the case was called on Tuesday, Chileshe was not before court, and neither were his sureties. State prosecutor Juma Banda applied for a bench warrant, which was issued and Chileshe was arrested.
    Magistrate Lamba has set today for return of the warrant and possible judgment…
