CHIEF Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has called on the people of Southern Province to redeem themselves from a tribal tag by allowing other political parties to conduct their campaigns in the region without being harassed ahead of the August 11 general elections.

Mr Kambwili said in Kitwe yesterday that Southern Province should not be restricted to people from one political party as every Zambian has a right to campaign freely in the area.

Mr Kambwili said Southern Province is a fraction of a bigger nation called Zambia and as such, every citizen is free to conduct political activities without being harassed.

Mr Kambwili, who is Information and Broadcasting Services Minister, was speaking during a Patriotic Front (PF) rally at Kitwe’s Mukuba Secondary School grounds.

He described the attacking of PF deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya by suspected United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres in Monze on Friday as unacceptable.

He said Southern Province is not for only one political party.

“Southern Province is not for only one political party. The province is part of the whole Zambia, and as such, everyone should be free to visit the area,” Mr Kambwili said.

Mr Kambwili called on Zambians to scrutinise people vying for presidency as most of them did not mean well for this country.

He urged all well-meaning Zambians to rally behind the ruling PF government and vote for President Lungu and his team to enable them to continue delivering massive development countrywide.

Mr Kambwili urged people not to be swayed into changing Government by what he termed prophets of doom.

Copperbelt Minister Mwenya Musenge urged Zambians to vote for President Lungu because of his humility, hardwork and his visionary leadership.

PF Copperbelt party mobilisation chairperson Joel Malanji said Mr Lungu was the suitable person for the presidency as evidenced in the professional manner he handled the transition period after the death of President Sata.

He said President Lungu has also continued with the PF’s development agenda.

  1. Kambwili don’t you read? Is it not only 2 weeks ago someone from pf was held a rally near a school purported to be former school for hh and later went to campaign at ithezi ithezi market, since January your president has been to the south more than five times, let me use pf term “that is unprecedented” visitations.

    • Last time I checked ECZ said no campaigns until May. Whats happening now?

      PF makes rules and breaks them a true sign of confusion.

      Yesterday people Kambwili transported from nearby villages on promise of money and mealimeal were disappointed when no mealimeal was given and when some were stranded with no transport to take them home. Lesson learnt next time they wont come near to any PF rally.

      People in CB are waiting for UPND to address them so they hear how it will improve their lives.

      PF is campaigning openly while refusing other parties ftom doing it. LAST KICKS OF A DYING HORSE!

      VIVA UPND AND HH TEAM.

    • The trouble with Chimbwili is that he is too dull. It’s PF that needs to allow other parties to campaign. PF has used the Police Force and it’s fascist youth wing to stop others from holding meetings, even in-doors.

  2. Stupid kamwili you are so forgetful due to your short neck that ka inonge in parliament made pronouncement that copperbelt is no go area for opposition and why are campaigning by holding public rallies does it mean we also start serious campaigns? This year is for change we have experienced real suffering under this vision less government and i have come to understand that pf is full of not normal people

  3. Comment:this man is obssesed with tribalism,each time he opens his stinking mouth its tribal,viva HH nayo nayo

    • THIS IS BECAUSE WE ZAMBIA DOES NOT WANT/NEED TRIBALISM IN IT’S MIDST. SO, WE SHOULD ROOT IT OUT BY TALKING ABOUT IT AND NOT BY BURYING OUR HEADS IN THE SAND. TRIBALISM IS THE MAIN ROOT COURSE OF CIVIL WARS IN AFRICA AND IT SHOULD NOT BE ENCOURAGED.

  4. Joe white; 1 sin + 1 sin = 2 sins
    never use a wrong method to fight a good cause. please lets not disadvantage HH by using wrong methods. copy cut and paste
    Show the nation you mean well, to inspire us the undecided voters, but if we cannot see any difference you and them, then………it is difficult to appreciate the much talked about change, you make us believe that even yourselves you will behave the same way once elected into office

    • What sympathy vote,are drunk?you think you are anywhere close to winning? Wait and see,you ll end up hanging yourself. You can vote yours in southern and we shall know what to do.you think we are happy with the way you voted in 2015?am at my village right now and am showing them your postings,they already know what to do before I arrived.so watch the space.

  5. Don’t worry honourable CK, we are slowly changing coz we have seen what pf has done in the province which wasn’t there!

  6. CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI – Know that Zambians are fade up with your tribal talk. it is not adding value in your PF campaigns. It just causing more minus. Grow up. Look at what PF did on youth day to UPND youths. No government official has condemned that violence. Surprisingly and more embarrassing this happened in full view of your vice president Inonge Wina and the PF ploce. The world is watching you. Kabwili know that pf have lost these coming elections on account of your party being violent, your deceitfulness as pf leaders, the failed economy, the closure of CBU and UNZA, miners lost jobs despite the national assurance by the president, cost of living is too high, Fuel prices are too high despite the fuel being cheap on the international market. So kabwili, this tribal talk is taking you no…

  7. Youth day was a day to celebrate and not campaign. UPND youths came with placards denouncing and calling the President all sorts of names. The Vice President was not spared by the abusive language of the same youths.
    I think that they asked for what happened to them
    I believe in apologies but no on this one

    • Using your stoopid logic, we should just let Zambia burn. PF has no leadership. Those in power should be magnanimous because they wield too much power already. They should not be too sensitive to criticism unless they have not delivered on their manifesto.

  8. And finally the CAT is out of the bag, PF have started their campaigns while denying others the same. Trust Kambwili to always put his foot in his own mouth.

  9. The UPND can have the Southern,Western & North Western Provinces,whilst the PF can have the rest of the Provinces.I don’t know to who’s advantage is this if you are a fully burnt out political analyst?

    • @10, CHAZYA, WHO TOLD YOU THAT WESTERN AND NORTH WESTERN PROVINCES ARE FOR UPND? THINGS HAVE CHANGED- WESTERN AND NORTH WESTERN PROVINCES ARE NOW FOR PF AND UPND WILL HAVE AN UPHILL BATTLE TO WIN EVEN A SINGLE COUNCILLOR SEAT. WAIT AND SEE. BA UPND, “BALINYALA KUNTULO” ABO.

  10. The truth has come out. Bwalya’s beating in Monze was stage – managed to portray a picture of S/P being tribal . After Bwalya’s fake beating then immediately a political rally is held in Kitwe to continue labelling sp as tribal province. Zambians are fed up with Pf’s tribal talks deeply rooted in their DNA. 8/11 kuuyabebele

  11. Another statement hinging on tribalism attributed to the Chief tribalist Chishimba Kambwili. I thought his PF party said they were not campaigning but inspecting projects around the country? In view of this, wasn’t his President not in Bweengwa, Itezhi Tezhi, Sinazeze and the Vice President was she in Livingstone? Or where does Kambwili think all these plàces are. Of course Livingstone, Bweengwa, Sinazeze or Itezhi Tezhi are not in Northern Province or any other Province but Southern!

  12. One can’t discuss Tonga without the word tribalism in the sentence. Please all other people, let’s hang onto leadership as Tongas hang onto tribalism.

    • Non-Bembas are not fooled by the attempted isolation of Tongas. The tribalism of Bembas is unequalled.
      #ChagwaMustFall

  13. It is not supprising anyway to hear such words from him coz these are well known hypocrits who have no shame in defending the wrongs and atrocities committed against any citizen as long as it is the ruling clique . No one has ever declared SP a no go area for anyone but the so called JERABO criminals are openly doing that. One wonders who gave them that impression that CBS belongs to criminals

  14. One wonders why the ruling party is panicking so much by starting the campaigns well before the official date. We are daily being inundated with statements from ECL and other party big wigs that PF will win in the first round. Their media team is also not to be outdone by daily reminding us how they will win comfortably by more than 50%+1. Someone clarify, what are these illegal campaigns all about? This is really ‘unprecedented.’

  15. This arch tribalist is actually a senior PF minister.
    He was the one advising mangers in public companies to employ relatives.
    Kambwili has been very destructive to the social fabric of Zambia. The sooner he is denied the podium to spread venomous remarks the better for Zambia. That podium is PF, which must be removed from GRZ.

  16. Actually, this semi human is a tribalist and a bigot. This is the guy who was mad when Luanshya people voted for a Luvale guy when the government administration was under MMD. Have already forgotten that?
