Wynter Kabimba stresses a point during the launch of the Rainbow Party’s national campaigns
RAINBOW party president Wynter Kabimba says the Southern province is no longer a stronghold for one political party.

Speaking during a Special programme on Byta FM Radio in Choma yesterday Mr Kabimba said he was in Southern province to join the party aspiring candidates in the general elections campaigns.

Mr Kabimba said the Rainbow was an alternative party that the people of Southern province could join because it had a clear manifesto and social economic policies.

He said the party had vibrant candidates contesting parliamentary and local government seats and they should be voted for during the forthcoming elections.

“ We have come to Southern province to prove that that it is no longer bedroom for one political party, we are here to tell the people that this is an alternative party that they can join,” he said.

On the Referendum running concurrently with the elections , Mr Kabimba said his party was against and advised the people to vote No. “It would have been better, if the referendum was not running alongside with the elections, the Electoral Commission of Zambia should have created more room for people to understand the referendum question and so that they make an informed decision,” he said.

He expressed confident that his party would form government after the August 11, 2015 because of its clear policies.

He said the current economic challenges that country was facing was as a result of having the capitalist policies but his party if elected would have a socialist economic principle.

He further said his party was against any form of violence and any Rainbow member found perpetrating violence would face expulsion.

“We have a duty not to harass other members from other political parties just because they don’t subscribe to the ideals of our party,” he said.

He appealed to the voters to vote for him because he has experience as he has served as Minister and also served as Town clerk.

Mr Kabimba was also in Pemba were he also held a series of meetings.

  1. Irrespective of the timing for the referendum, what is the purpose of advising electorate to vote no? Whose benefit is the bill of rights? Does voting yes to the amendment imply voting for a presidential candidate? Zambians, we are our own enemies of progress!

    • But you have forgotten how GM, Scot and Sampa behaved under PF. You even appointed the most corrupt Minister during that time as your running mate. Are you serious or you just pretend??

  2. The trouble with this Kabimba is that in most of his campaign meetings he seems to be more concerned about UPND than anything else. Has the UPND caused any economic hitches for anyone in this country. Didn’t he ever act as President of the current govt.? Is it the UPND that kicked him out of PF?

  3. Ba Kabimba stop wasting your precious time and resources. You were very arrogant when you were at the helm of PF.We have not forgotten how the whole country celebrated your dismissal.Edgar Lungu is a very humble man compared to you. God uplifts the humble like Edgar Lungu.

  4. This man says he is opposed to having the referendum alongside the General election, and advises the electorate to VOTE NO, this is confusing. How does one vote NO if they don’t vote? Kabimba , please think through what you want to say before you actually bring it out.

  5. True, I agree with Kabimba that Southern Province is no longer a stronghold of some known political party because within itself, this party known for Satanism is very divided because its small leader has auctioned it to the PF rejects at the expense of the old timers.
    UPND in short is under siege by GBM, Miles Sampa, Mulenga Sata, Silvia Masebo and the big chamilion called Scott. They have taken over and soon after losing the 11 August 2011, GBM will ensure he is its president. They cartel have been given a party at a silver plate but will still remain in opposition for the next 20 years.
    PF is sailing safe and sound, viva President Lungu and Inonge Wina, Zambia simply loves you and your powerful combination.

  7. YESTER MAN TALKING SOCIALISM.
    WE HAD ENOUGH OF THE TIRED IDEOLOGY WHICH MADE ZAMBIANS UNAMBITIOUS AND POOR UNDER KK.
    EVEN CHINA, RUSSIA AND NOW CUBA ABANDONED SOCIALISM.
    MMEMBE AND WYNTER ARE FOR THEORETICAL SOCIALISM WHILE THEY LIVE IN LUXURY.
    WE ARE CAPITALISTS NOW AND NO MORE SPOON FEEDING BUT WE SHALL LOOK AFTER THE REALLY VULNERABLE NOT LAZY BUMS AND DAY DREAMERS

  8. It’s true UPND has to concentrate on winning not fighting. Let the Party work hard to win not immitating the PF in fighting. Winning is not by fighting but hard working and good clear manifesto.
