UPND accuse Kambwili of using uncivilised language against HH

General News UPND accuse Kambwili of using uncivilised language against HH

It is now clear for all to see that our colleagues in the PF Government have completely abrogated the agreements of the political parties Indaba that called for civil political discourse. Information and Broadcasting Minister Chishimba Kambwili has continued to rant and use uncivilised language against UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and the party.

Clearly they have also continued to abuse the public media funded by taxpayers money, such as ZNBC, Zambia Daily Mail, and Times of Zambia.

These media houses have continued being used as tools of divisive sentiments and hatred, contrary to what was agreed at the political parties Indaba organised by the church.

Whereas space is freely give to the likes of Kambwili and his derogatory remarks against others, ourselves included, professionalism is thrown by the wayside when those being attacked or mentioned are not also given a platform to reply.

As was raised during the political parties Indaba, the trend has continued where the only time the UPND leadership is mentioned it is in negative terms, and we are not given the chance to share our side of the story or to respond.

This is also completely against the constitution, which clearly provides for media access for all stakeholders.

It is such violations that have the potential to undermine the upcoming election and raise levels of frustration among the people. We hope both the local and international community are closely watching and are ready to join us in pushing for fair coverage.

We cannot have a situation whereby we have to resort to requesting that these media houses and their sources stop mentioning the name UPND and our leadership altogether.

We might equally look at other ways such as litigation to compel these public media houses to abide by the provisions of the constitution and their own house rules, which are very clear on the matter.

There is a fair and easy way of doing things that will suit all parties, but pressure from the PF’s side on these media houses must now stop.

    • I THINK MR. KAKOMA AS A VERY BIG PROBLEM, AND HE HAS BECOME SO USELESS SO TO SPEAK. WHEN HIS LEADERS HH CALLS OUR PRESIDENT NAMES IT IS LIKE HE IS OUT OF THE COUNTRY, BUT WHEN ONE CALLED CHISHIMBA SAYS SOME THING AGAINST HIS SMALL god HH IT BECAMES A BIG ISSUE. MR. KAKOMA WISE UP DONT BE A PARROT IN THE PROCESS YOU LOOK VERY FOOLISH. THIS MAN WHEN HE WAS WITH ONE NEWSPAPER HE USE TO APPEAR VERY SMART IN HIS BRAINS BUT NOMBA AWE MAPEZI.

  1. ba kkoma,

    do not this time around, declare anyone “enemy number one” the way you did with the post newspaper.
    this is just a friendly warning cos you upnd guys are known to be too inconsistent.

  2. Tell the watchdog to equally be fair when reporting on the PF and its leadership. You want things to to be leveled at the same time ridiculing others.

    • Is the Watch Dog funded by the people???? Is there no law in Zambia that regulates the awarding of honorary degrees……CK does not deserve a PhD….nay….nay…….PhD for insults sure imwe???

    • Ba alfred the watchdog is not a state on line thing same as the Lusaka times favours the PF WE DO NOT COMPLAIN WE JUST BLOG. You guys are afraid of your own shadows.

  3. UP and Down is worshipped by ZWD simply cos they are on the Kachema payroll…….Kakoma why cant u also complain about the way ZWD reports as if they were trained at the Chuundu caitwa university in Monze ?

  4. Does Charles Kakoma expect a thug to use civilized language? That is impossible. You can take a kaponya from the bus stop but you will never take the kaponyaism out of him/her. Kaponyaism is the culture of PF. Examples are abound; Dora Siliya, Mumbi Phiri, Frank Bwalya, Chishimba Kambwili, etc. It gets worse as one goes down the rungs of the PF organization.

    • These are the people who call a spade a spade.The problem with upAndOWN is that they provoke PF and when PF rsponds it becomes an issue.It reminds of Rokana(now Nkana) United used to do-they would start with rough play and the other team starts reacting, they could cry the loudest and the opponents in trouble.So PF be careful with this upAndOWN or united party for national destruction.They campaign is PF has done nothing and that people rioted because of poverty.They have chosen to sight handicapped, can’t see anything good.Kalabo road previous gvt failed to realise it, but under PF it is a realite.Dr.Kambwili these morons envy you for your achievements and principles.I be you forgive kabimba and bring him back at branch level.He is missing PF

    • The horrible witch doctor Kambwili is used to the language he uses because he is a jerabo and for them that is normal. See he even got a doctarate for it. LOL GOD SAVE US.

  5. Why cry foul play here? GBM had given the chance to Chishimba Kambwili to vie for the beauty contest but Chishimba declined. Equally, Chishimba Kambwili gave GBM chance to debate at Govt Complex, but GBM declined. All the media you are talking about could have covered these events for Zambians to judge for themselves.

  6. Bwana Kakoma, what is wrong with you and your party. What has Chishimba said that you are referring to that will bring levels of frustrations and you want the international community to look out for?
    When Fatty was hailing insults you quickly distanced your self that it can not be proven. Day in you president calls his excellence ECL all sorts of names dont you think it also brings in a level of frustrations. Anway i was about to forget that you just like winning like 2yr olds. The indaaba decisions that you your selves do not follow.

  7. Tell us kaili what he said. The problem with UPND is that they think its only them with licence to insoult others. They are quick to insoult yet not strong to cry when insoulted. The best you can do is to choose what to say about your friends

  8. If the language that Hakainde Hypocrite uses daily against ECL is normal, the UPND has a problem. When GBV Mwamba nakedly insulted people on the media, you issued no statement. How can state media give a platform to people whose language of insults is normal? Don’t cry foul when you are at the end of the stick.

    • Lucifer is the one misusing public media to spread hatred when the same bible compels him to love and care for sheep like you, instead he is stealing and empoverishing people like you.

  9. public media is there to advocate government issues, such as hihlighting the successes of the government of the day and oroso to answer accusers of government of wrong doing,not cheap politicing as always exhibited by upAndOWN
