Copy and paste the Southern Province voting pattern-Kambwili

Kambwili
Kambwili

Patriotic Front candidate for Roan constituency Chishimba Kambwili on Monday called on voters of Chingola and other PF strongholds to emulate the voting pattern of Tongas who vote for UPND and Hakainde Hichilema in Southern Province.

Speaking at a PF political rally at Kabundi Secondary School grounds in Chingola, Dr Kambwili called on other tribes to replicate the Tonga way of voting.

He said Tongas in Southern Province only vote for UPND and their tribesman Mr Hichilema with a view of being ruled by a Tonga.

“This is selfishness and we shall copy and paste their way of voting so that they should learn that if they continue exhibiting tribalism, their leader Mr Hichilema will not rule Zambia because Southern Province or Copperbelt is not Zambia.

“In some areas our President Edgar Lungu was getting 20 votes against 16, 000 of HH. This shows selfishness. I don’t hate Tongas but I hate their manners of only wanting the Tonga for a Tonga,” he said.

Dr Kambwili who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister further said UPND and their President not to ride on tribal vote in order to rule Zambia.

He said raiding on Tribal talk will only make voters distance themselves from the UPND leader because Zambians do not want to be divided on tribal lines as they believe that they are one regardless of their tribe.

He further accused the UPND leader of not campaigning in Southern Province because his tribes men have assured of votes in the province.

“HH is not campaigning in Southern Province because he has been told not to waste time in his home province because HH’s votes are insured and guaranteed in Tongaland,” he said.

  1. Very dull man. Do these people realise that Copperbelt is a Cosmopolitan province? You can’t use regionalism to win votes on CB. Try economic solutions and people will listen and vote for you. Eish

    • That summarily buries the Tonga party in Zambia. They didn’t have foresight to resort to nega nega. Unless cows and goats are also mobilized to vote, then we can say maybe.

    • That’s correct. Why should HH expect other tribes to vote for him so that he becomes president, when all the people in Southern Province are voting only for HH

    • But did Lungu campaign in Southern province?You go and campaign in southern province you buffoon instead of brewing tribalism.You dont know that many Zambians have inter-married?If you have nothing to tell the people of CB, just shut your big filthy mouth.

    • VJRigger,
      No brains in pants. Lungu was in Sinazongwe and Chikankata. Aren’t these part of Southern Province?

    • Shame indeed! everyone has a home where he hails from and tribal politics shall soon finish in this modern era with a lot of intermarriages. Most children are half cast in Zambia and its really dangerous to play such kind of messages. If Kambwili doesnt have messages let him live it to Inonge and Changwa. This is what is killing PF careless talks and us in the UPND are happy to hear such sentiments from Kambwili because from us there are messages of uniting Zambians not dividing.

    • IT WILL BE F00LISH OF OTHER AREAS TO ACCEPT THE INSULT BY VOTING FOR HH. TRULY, OTHER AREAS MUST REPLICATE THE SOUTHERN PROVINCE WAY OF VOTING. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. IN FACT THERE’S EVERYTHING RIGHT WITH COPYING AND PASTING THE SOUTHERN PROVINCE WAY OF VOTING BECAUSE THIS WILL SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE TO ALL GROUPINGS IN ZAMBIA THAT REGIONAL INCLINATION EVEN THOUGH THE CANDIDATE IS BUT ONLY RUBBISH WILL NOT WORK IN ZAMBIA. ALL ZAMBIANS ARE URGED NOT TO PROMOTE TRIBALISM AS OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS DO. LET US BE ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION. HEED KAMBWILI’S ADVICE IN ORDER TO AVERT FUTURE TRIBAL PROBLEMS.

    • THE CAMPAIGN MESSAGE TO ALL ZAMBIANS SHOULD BE …KILL TRIBALISM BY VOTING THE SOUTHERN WAY SO THAT HH AND HIS TRIBES MEN UNDERSTAND THAT TRIBALISM HAS NO ROOM IN THIS COUNTRY. ZAMBIANS PLEASE PICK ON EITHER LUNGU OR EDITH ETC.. AND GIVE THEM MASSIVE VOTES. MY ADVISE IS INSTEAD OF WASTING /DIVING VOTES, PLEASE GIVE THAT MASSIVE VOTE TO LUNGU.

    • I am non bemba nor Tonga but based on the copperbelt,and truly hurt by the amount of tribalism coming out of this kambwili I cant imagine this ***** is a government minister paid from taxes collected from everybody including tongas.the so called humble lungu should never have had anything to do with this nicompupu..

    • shu shu shu

      When was Lungu in Southern province? and for which election? Did Lungu go there in 2015?Lungu has only realised that he needs to go there for this election.Read the story first before you show us your IQ score.

    • KAMBWILI IS VERY DULL. HIS HATE FOR TONGAS WILL KILL THIS GUY. ISN’T IT KAMBWILI AND HIS MINIONS IN PF WHO ALWAYS RELEASE HASH TRIBAL REMARKS AGAINST THE TONGAS? UPND IS NOT FOR THE TONGAS, AND THIS , KAMBWILI IS FULLY AWARE OF. UPND IS FOR ALL THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. WHAT UPND HAS TO OFFER THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE IS WHAT IS ATTRACTING IN UPND. IT IS NOT ABOUT TRIBE. HOW CAN A SANE PERSON VOTE FOR THIEVES AND LOOTERS IN PF? HOW CAN A NORMAL PERSON VOTE FOR LUNGU FOR CONTINUED SUFFERING. HH AND HIS UPND TEAM HAVE A SOLUTION TO FIX ZAMBIA’S ECONOMY TO MAKE ZAMBIA A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN. WE WANT TO THE CORRUPTION IN PF BY VOTING FOR UPND. UNDER UPND GOVERNMENT, EVERYONE WILL BE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME A BETTER CITIZEN. KAMBWILI SHOULD KNOW THAT UPND IS MORE UNIFYING THAN THE WAKO-NIWAKO…

    • I’m not Tonga but if this is the campaign message from PF, my Bemba vote goes to UPND. Lungu is not one of us so let easteners do the copying and pasting. Watermelon me.

  2. Hahaha Kambwili you have to explain to them what you will do for them. You and lungu have lost touch with the people and that is very evident on how excited the masses are when they see HH unlike when they see you. The copperbelt voted for you last time and you neglected them.

    • This ***** forget that they were the ones who started wako ni wako and now they have continued it yet pointing fingers at their opponents. It is not tribal bwana! We are just hungry and we want change. Me vote UPND

  3. We totally agree and support you Dr. Kambwili on your call for us all to turn up in huge numbers in Luapula, Eastern, Northern, Muchinga, Copperbelt, Lusaka, Central and Western Provinces to vote for President Lungu just as the T0ngas only vote for HH. Why should HH expect other tribes to vote for him when he doesn’t allow his tribesmates to vote for others?
    Imagine in 2015 President Lungu was getting 15 votes against 13000 in Southern Province! Let us all be united and teach this HH a big lesson by turning out in huge numbers for President Lungu. Don’t forget that HH sold all our mines and contributed to misery the miners are experiencing today!

    • Bembas gave sata 100 % vote in luapula, is only bembas allowed to do that ?

      Anyways this election is about taking the country forward , people have no jobs and are hungry. All PF seem to do is borrow to steal then sing and dance about roads the whole day as if people will eat roads.

      Meanwhile

    • Spaka this is about ECL and not Sata! The Southerners have been voting like that whenever there is their tribesman is standing. It is a fact and people choose to ignore it and cry tribalism when others propagate it. No!!! Let us call a spade a spade. I was busy campaigning for HH when I was abroad but when I realised that those stick up for each other like glue I was like let me join. Nevers Mumba was saying that Bembas owe Tongas a vote because of Nkumbula did. Really???

    • Do you mean to tell me that Southern Province has less than 15 non-tongas in the area? Or how come they too voted the way they did?

    • @TIA: I think the PF are now way past what you are asking of them to do. When leaders stand at a campaign rally and advocate open tribalism then you know everything else has failed. They now know they cannot convince people to vote for them based on their own achievements which leaves them with one desperate option of turning people to resent their opponents based on tribe. THAT TOO WILL FAIL.

    • THEY IN FACT DON’T NEED TO TELL YOU WHAT THEY WILL DO FOR ZAMBIA. YOU SEEM TO BE THE ONLY BLIND 1D1OT IN ZAMBIA WHO CAN’T SEE WHAT PF HAVE DONE AND STILL ARE DOING. CONTINUE YOUR F00LISH SLUMBER. ICINTU CINTU MWENE. IFINTU NI LUNGU NAFUTI NAFUTI. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH KAMBWILI.

    • @ Peter,Yes we have seen what pf have done..inflation at 22% from 7%.Kwacha at 10 to USD. Debt ceiling broken so that your grand children pay for your foolishness,poverty levels at its highest,unemployment yena teyakulandako..need i say more? The so called tarred roads last only 3 years and potholes show up.And keep in mind,after September,the IMF are coming in with their SAP’s.So whoever wins should brace for that coz pf have already committed the country to that.

  4. you are already dividing us,and you are a very dull doc am pf but i dont agree with you.Dont you know that copperbelt is cosmopolitan???????

  5. Kambwili missed the opportunity to campaign for PF if this is all he said.

    He should have spoken about the PF, and not UPND.

    In Chichewa, there is a saying Kambwili needed to heed. It goes as follows: “Ulenje umasimba wako”.

    • No way Kambwili was spot on that is the message voters need just to expose this tribalism, regionalism and Tongalism i hope the president team will be saying the same think in Muchinga province that the tongas hates us very mucch

    • I’m not Tonga but if this is the campaign message from PF, my Bemba vote goes to UPND. Lungu is not one of us so let easteners do the copying and pasting. Watermelon me.

  6. In my province we will vote PF out. stup!d tribal talk by Kambwili. Is copperbelt bemba land? because of kabwili’s stup!d tribal talk i will tell SP to vote 90% for HH. Didn’t Lungu get more votes in EP? why has ECZ not disciplined kambwili. are they fearing his witchcraft or what?

    • Muletontokanya bane how do you compare votes in EP and SP when SP has the largest number of voters than EP because of Farms and other production industries!

    • COPPERBELT PROVINCE IS NOT BEMBALAND BUT THOSE PEOPLE ARE INFLUENCED AND THINK LIKE BEMBAS. THEY ARE IMPARTIAL AND JUST VOTE FOR THE RIGHT CANDIDATE.

  7. Kambwili is tribalist. This is a non uniting leader. Why is it that this time it is the Tongas that are on the lips of Bemba political leaders? This shows how tribal these people are.
    Look at this situation: Tongas Lenje, Swaka, Lamba,Kaonde vote for HH, then all Easterners vote for ECL, then you bembas vote for Edith Nawakwi. It will be ‘foolish’ to vote for an Easterner when they can not vote for a Northerner Edith Nawakwi? All people of Zambia vote for your tribal mates because this is what Kambwili is saying. I would have liked you to tell the Tongas to look at the ‘reasonableness’ of the current political leaders and make a choice. I like the comments of 1 and 2 but 3 isn’t mature!!!

  8. Right thinking Zambians should never vote for these PF tribalists and regionalists. Kambwili and his PF have failed and have nothing to offer hence spewing divisive messages. Lungu has no vision and does not know what he is going to do if re-elected. We have a chance to boot out these thieves and looters who have introduced violence as a tool to rig our elections. Forward with HH,GBM & UPND.

  9. Desperate times call for desperate measures. This coming from a man with a supposed doctorate and bearly hours after ‘national prayers for peace’. The fact is this tribal agenda has been exhausted and has become stale to the ears of Zambians,. Why not just explain to the ex miners what you have planned for them.

  10. Zambians, let us learn to be object,analytical and not emotionally partisan in our approach to issues. Let us respect each others’views without insulting. Let us battle with ideas. In my opinion based on data, the voting pattern in Southern Province is not based on preference based on policies but largely on quest for a Tonga to rule. Who is behind this? of course, some careless Tonga politicians. Let us change this behaviour.

    • @ Davidic. In 2011 Sata got 11% in Southern Province. HH got 0.3% in Luapula and 6% in Northern Province. PF has an MP in Livinstone. UPND has none in Northern & Luapula.
      Let us look beyond tribe and vote for someone who will fix our economic woes. If this is all that Kambwili has to offer as a campaign message, then PF is dead indeed. Have you ever heard HH tell pipo to vote along tribal lines?

    • @Davidic
      You say “let us learn to be object, (sic) analytical and not emotionally partisan in our approach to issues” You started well but fluffed badly.
      I do not know where you hail from but I believe quite strongly that your and Mr. Kambwili’s insistence that only Tongas vote for their tribes mates has totally been debunked and is without any scientific basis, devoid of statistical backing and loaded with conjecture. In 2001, the people of Luapula rejected Mazoka even though he was the best option; in 1991, the people of Eastern province still voted for one dictator Kenneth Kaunda because he was from Malawi pretty close to their homestead while Southern province wholly voted Chiluba. In 2011, Muchinga and Luapula voted Mr Sata soundly. I dislike people who dwell too much on tribe…

  11. y don’t u tell people what u are going to do than always talking of tribalism just create any lies than those tribal sentiments

    • @Mususa Mwape: I get totally dumbfounded when someone say we will vote as Tongas do. The truth is the only vote one can guarantee is their own. Once someone goes into that voting booth only they know who they will give their vote to. Funny thing is I have almost all PF leaders speak about Tongas and tribalism but I am yet to hear HH say anything tribal. All I have heard from him everywhere he has been to is his party’s 10 point plan.

      2 days after the National prayers for peace this is what has come out of the chief gov’t spokesperson. Where is the church that organised those prayers and indeed where is the president to condemn this?

  12. Using Kambwili’s logic GBM is now a Tonga. GBM remains a Bemba who has joined HH who is Tonga. The other VP in UPND is a Banda. So using Kambwili’s logic all Tongas,Bembas and Nyanjas should vote for HH,GBM and UPND. We should ignore these PF tribalists and regionalists and vote for a party with a vision or plan. UPND is the only party with a Ten Point Plan. To shame these PF thugs,thieves,looters and murderers lets vote for HH,GBM & UPND in huge numbers and destroy Chakolwa Lungu’s rigging plans.

  13. By the way, Zambia is not just about HH or ECL, Tonga or Bemba, PF or UPND. She is bigger than that. Politics come and go, Zambia will remain and must remain UNITED. No body should divide us along tribal lines. Intermarriages and other issues have made us into one big tribe called ZAMBIA. God bless Zambia.

  14. HH was in southern just the other week,so mwana waloba yauma.Visionary leadership is what we should vote for and right now HH fits the bill whether you like it or not.
    Kambwi……you are the tribal chap, each time your mouth opens Tonga this Tonga that comes out.

  15. If the figures Kambwili gave are correct, and compare them to what HH received from the north then i will agree that Tongas are a tribal party. However, i refuse to be drwan in the tribal talk as we’re one people.Upnd,PF,MMD,FFD we all share one place called ‘Zambia’and that’s what we should value the most.

  16. The bembas are the worst tribalists in Zambia. Look at how sata made up his cabinet and appointments to parastatals. look at how the likes of kambwili, chama and mumbi like calling HH to be tribal yet HH doesn’t talk about tribe at all he only talks about issues. Zambia is rated as one of the poorest countries in the world. its poor because of the leaders who have ruled Zambia before. what tribes are these leaders who have ruled Zambia. for 50 years after independence kambwili is telling people to choose based on tribe no wonder we are poor. its because the leaders ruling us dont know how to develop. they are just pre occupied with their tribes. they are cavemen. they don’t belong to this modern era. kambwili you dont deserve to be in leadership my brother, you are too primitive. what…

  17. Unfortunately or fortunately, what Kambwili is saying is the truth. Tongas are every where on record saying among themselves that we have to use other tribes to make sure our very own gets into state house. People like Garry Nkombo have been telling non-Tonga employees at Parliament that even when they happen to be his friends, they will ensure that when UPND comes into power they are replaced with Tongas or their tribal cousins. As we speak, there are a lot of Tongas in government who are in a celebratory mood before even votes are cast and are claiming they have been promised to be ambassador or this in government. It is therefore not surprising that many Tongas are saying it is their time to rule which means replacing non-Tongas in government with Tongas and their tribal cousins. For…

  18. For those doubting this, this is real !!! We are hearing it every day about how Tongas for example are saying they are going to deal with other tribes, especially Bembas. We all remember how Mazoka led against Mwanawasa and later Mwanawasa won. We all know how a list of the UPND cabinet was leaked to the ruling MMD. And we know how that list had names mostly of people from Southern Province as cabinet ministers and parastatal heads. We also know how clear it was that Mazoka won that election and was later rigged for Mwanawasa because of fears that a UPND government was going to destabilise the country. These machinations by the UPND to give GRZ jobs only to their tribes men and women are very much alive today.

  19. How can a person use such strong words such as hate? These guys need to go to school and take International Management, Organisational Behaviour and Interpersonal Skills. No normal person in politics can utter those words. This goes to show you buying a PhD online does not buy a guy class or etiquette. Everything that comes from this guys mouth is foul and has a stench. If people are voting for HH only means they are sick and tired of you buffoons stealing from them. You Kambwili have abused people in Luanshya and Roan and they don’t even like you and your attitude. Simple requests and letters of support Luanshya residents have asked yet you turn around and abuse them to getting things or getting work done for free. You should be ashamed of yourself!

    • Bane Tongas are humble people and moreover we just one as Zambians. Lets unite and act morally. One Zambia one nation.

  20. These guys need to go to school and take International Management, Organisational Behaviour and Interpersonal Skills. No normal person in politics can utter those words.

  21. Nega Nega formula. Its only true and the truth pains. So let all other regions avoid HH and let us see what happens. The tonga are actually f00lish by thinking that they can only vote for UPND whether they are able or not. So eastern 0 HH, Northern 0 HH, Luapula 0 HH, Muchinga 0 HH. We can share Lusaka, Copperbelt and Central because they are mixed.

  22. Fact check :Kenneth Kaunda ,from Malawi ruled zambia for 27 years.
    Ftj ,from Zaire/zambia ruled for 10 years
    Mwanwasa, ruled for 8 years , lamba land
    Rupiah Banda from Zimbabwe ruled for 3 years
    Michael Sata from muchinga ruled for 3 years
    Edgar chagwa Lungu Eastern province.
    I don’t see a bemba in charge of zambia for the last 50 years, and i don’t see a bemba crying to be voted for in the coming election. But see many northerners who like HH.

    • Why use speculation in Nationalities of FTJ, RB and KK? This is being economical with the truth…FTJ Luapula Prov, KK, Northern (now Muchinga), RB eastern, period!, why create unnecessary debates?

  23. Wako ni wako.This year’s elections will be very interesting, the voting pattern will be tribal. The tongas simply want a fellow tonga to also rule Zambia.

  24. Ba Kambwili, it takes only 1 hour 30 minutes for kaondes to leave their land to reach Chingola. Oh by the way many of them have Bemba sounding names and actually speak Bemba very well. The people you were addressing in Chingola comprised many Tribes including Tongas so I wonder how many of them felt. They do not live in Southern. They live in Chingola but they are Tongas or Kaondes etc. My free advice to the Honourable Doctor is just be neutral and base your campaign on what you are going to do for the people. Tuli bantu naifwe kuti twaumfwa nga filepanga sense.

  25. “He said Tongas in Southern Province only vote for UPND and their tribesman Mr Hichilema with a view of being ruled by a Tonga”
    KAMBWILI IS THE CAUSER OF THE DOWN FALL OF PF. IF HE CAN REALISE THAT ALL WHO SPEAK BEMBA ARE NOT BEMBAS THEN HE CAN NOT SPEAK LIKE THAT. I AM A LAMBA AND MY WIFE IS LUNDA FROM MWANSABOMBWE AND WE HAVE CONDEMNED KAMBWILI’ SPEECH AND WILL DEFINATLY NOT GOING TO THROW A VOTE IN PF. IF HE IS SAYING ALL ZAMBIANS ARE BEMBAS AND TONGAS THEN WE SHALL SEE HIM ON AUG 11

  26. ON 11 AUGUST KABWILI SHALL BURST OFF FROM HIS TRIBAL REMARKS. I WANT TO KNOW WHICH SCHOOL HONOURED KAMBWILI WITH A HONORALLY DR? ON WHICH MORAL GROUNDS?
    BA DR BWEKUBWEKU KAMBWILI, KNOW THAT PF IS HAS FAILED ZAMBIANS AND IT IS NOT ABOUT TRIBALISM. I WISH THE TIMES AND DAILY MAIL OF TODAY HAVE TOLD ZAMBIANS WHO KAMBWILI IS FOR THE TONGAS. LET HIM KNOW THAT WHEN HE SEAKS LIKE THAT HE IS JUST SUBTRACTING A LOT OF VOTES FROM OTHER TRIBES

  27. If again we do ‘wako ni wako’ then we are divided. Zambia is bigger than a tribe. Let’s vote for a leader who will bring development to all parts of the country we cherish the most, Zambia.Remember our forefathers sacrificed there lives for the peace we are enjoying today.

  28. What kambwili sais Is very True,Just change for You to have support even from the other région.otherwise Forget to rule This nation

    • Why dont you show them that you are not tribalists by voting for HH? This is like bakolwe balesakana ifipato…the only ones who seem not to fall into both your (Bemba and Tonga) categories are those from NWP…

  29. Tribal talk and slogans will not work kambwili. Meanwhile the touarisim and manufacturing industries are in steep decline.
    People are jobless and inflation at 22% is killing them.

    Try telling the zambian people how you will fix the economy.

  30. Another sign that Kambwili and PF are fueling tribalism. He should be ashamed for not preaching unit especially at the time when Zambia needs it most!

  31. If its true Kambwili said what is written here then his brain stinks like a pit latrine.. why should he bring in tribal talk instead of telling chingola residents what PF will do for the next five years. always tongas this tongas that why generalise as though all tongas are like what he puts it. Am tonga but I have never voted for UPND before.

    Kambwili please grow up Zambia Siyanyoko. You are just subtracting votes for PF instead of adding with this tribal talk. We had the late Alexander Kamalondo who used to talk why is he now or where is his legacy in Zambia

  32. Southerners you have a challenge as many perceive you to be siding with one person and one province . In the coming election rise the bar show us by voting for other provinces as these are not the the last elections we will ever hold.

    • @Tom. Iam from Eastern Province and Iam voting for HH. What you are saying implies that Tongas shud vote for ECL even if he is a failure in order to show that they are not tribal? Does that make sense? Tell us what PF has done so that we vote for them based on their record of delivery! Right now; How much is mealie meal? Have the 500,000 jobs ECL promised been created? What is the rate of the Kwacha to the US Dollar? Why is the cost of constructing aroad at US$1,000 per Km instead of US$400,000? Why is it that only PF cadres are getting Govt contracts?How did ECL manage to make K15,0000,000 in one year when his salary is only K700,000? Kaunda spent 27years and came out a poor man!
      Right now, HH makes more sense!

  33. These T0nga chaps started this tribal thing and we won’t sit idle and let our people vote for HH. It’s now not even a secret that HH strategy is to get all the votes from Southern Province and since we know this strategy we are going to tell all our relatives who are non T0ngas to only vote for President Lungu. It’s that plane simple.
    If T0ngas can’t see anything good in other tribes, why should we? If you live in a glass house don’t throw stones and if you can’t take blows brother don’t throw blows. Bembas and Easterners shall show who is powerful on 11 August.

    • Zambians of integrity who want to see zambia develop and are tired of the current corruption will not vote for PF no matter what tribe they hail from.

  34. The prayers are over now back to tribal politics…oh we will attend church on Sunday again and ask for White Jesus to forgive us!!

  35. We shall do that if that will bring down the price of goods and services. we shall do that is that will bring down the current high bank interest rates which have chopped down on people’s incomes. we shall do that if that will lower the exchange rate and reduce the cost of imported goods coz right now, its prohibitive to import a second hand Japanese vehicle. We shall do that if that will reduce the govt rot contributing to corruption and nepotism that has pushed the cost of govt service delivery high.
    Since I know Kambili you are reading this…. take time to reflect on your desperation to hold on to power coz you are forgetting to mention the most important source of your motivation, that is, to continue amassing wealth to your selfish self regardless of how poor the majority of…

  36. How come every T0nga supports HH by default? We learnt a lesson in 2015 and we will replicate as Bembas in 2016 for President Lungu. You can say whatever you you want but this is our message to our people, BEMBA POWER!

    • My bemba wife and her entire extended family are not voting for PF. Most of the are unemployed while they see PF officials become millionaires.

    • @ECL, what do you think Dr Simbyakula thinks when he sees sentiments like yours & Kabwili’s? Maybe this is the reason he chose not to file in his nomination papers?
      A true leader will preach unity at all costs. Kaunda was willing to resign as president in order to say no to tribalism! What type of leadership is Kambwili offering? When did you hear HH utter tribal sentiments?

  37. But he is only speaking the truth… Please don’t tick me down, I’m only saying what is reality in that province???

  38. What we can only say is that the voting parten for the Southern Province is wrong so is other Provinces if they so vote like wise.If we cant condemn it ,then we should not condemn Kambwili and we should then all follow suite in the same parten.Let us all first Condemn the Tribe Voting Partens be it in the Southern or else where please.We are all one People and their alot of Bembas taht have married Tongas and vice versa……what do you cal the children born from these couples what tribe are they.Let us continue our oneness Zambians.

  39. Truly speaking if was at that rally were kambwili was saying these word I would v stoned him for insulting the pipo. Clear interpretation of his words shows that these pipo who at the rally don’t reason and they r lazy pipo, as Copy and paste is only done dull and lazy students in universities and colleges. This is big insult to the pipo, but I know some will still praise him for these stupid words as we differ in analysing things.

  40. How many Tongas do we have that can almost be equal to the entire other tribes in Zambia for Kambwili to say only tongas Vote HH. As a matter of fact only one percent made PF to be in power last year and Kambwili is messing everything around PF. He will be remembered as the worst tribalist ever existed after 11 august 2016.

  41. This is very true whether you hate Dr CK or not.the way tongas vote for HH is not good for our democracy!!people must be voting based on development and not tribe!!even if you PUT JESUS CHRIST ON PF AND A TONGA ON UPND IN SOUTHERN,JESUS CHRIST CAN LOSE-IMAGINE!!we are bitter and ready to teach tongas a big lesson on 11/08/2016 by voting for PF in large numbers!!!WE VOTED FOR MAZOKA IN 2001 BECAUSE HE NEVER PREACHED TRIBALISM LIKE THE WAY HH HAS SPOILED THE MINDS OF TONGAS SINCE 2006!!THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY IN SOUTHERN BUT TRIBAL POLITICS ONLY!!Bravo Dr CK for calling a spade,a spade!!!

  42. A politics based on tribe is a politics that is bound to tear a country apart. It’s a politics of failure and lack of imagination and creativity as Barack Obama would put it. Why should a person go to Chingola for campaigns only to talk about UPND and tribalism. I am not a Tonga but I cant vote for a person just because they came to tell me not to vote for another candidate based on the voting pattern in another region. I’ll vote for a candidate who explains properly what they will do when they get into office. I think as Zambians we should start holding peaceful protests when politicians begin trying to cause hatred in our country the way Kambwili is doing. It’s very wrong. This man does not understand how it feels to be insulted collectively as a tribe, region or race.

  43. The problem with Chishimba Kambwili’s analysis is that it makes the following assumptions:
    1. All the Zambians he was inciting on the Copperbelt are non Tonga speaking people.
    2. All the Zambians residing in Southern Province today are Tonga speaking people who voted for HH in 2015.
    3. A national leader like Chishimba Kambwili can claim to be a legitimate Zambian national leader even if he maligns one region.
    Here is just one example: I am an Easterner registered to vote in Southern Province and I and my family of 8 will vote for HH in the forthcoming elections. I could have done the same thing had I registered on the Copperbelt or Eastern Province because I know that it’s only HH who is promising a better future for Zambia. So, it would be not true that the outcome of Southern…

  44. @James Banda kill that mentality that its the duty of president or government to better your future. Study or work hard to generate income for yourself my brother. Please work hard. Government can only create enabling business environment for us….and provide BASIC SERVICES. Good day Sir

  45. Both my wife and myself are products of intermarriages. One Zambia ,one nation. Our children speak four native languages fluently, including Bemba and Tonga. We do not even know which traditional rites to follow when our daughter gets married. Sir, you are not welcome to our happy home.

  46. Fact check still indicates that tongas everywhere are supporting HH and not Upnd . some of us leaving overseas have identified all the tongas throwing their weight behind HH. If you don’t agree with me just ask a tonga you know be it USA UK Aussie S.A. etc they are all for HH. Why? Kambwili is just the wrong person to talk about it but the truth of the matter is that it’s a fact.

  47. Its true 99.9% tongas support UPND wherever u’ll find them.The only one who don’t support him are those working in PF.PF has performed and pipo should appriciate.why should HH rule when he sold mines and has failed to explain how accumulated his wealth?He came into politics thru tribalism.i can’t waste my vote on HH otherwise Zambia will be divided.

  48. Dear Kambwili: the problem with tribalists like yourself, chikwanda, davies chama and mumbi is that you have an inferiority complex when you compare yourselves to the Tongas, that’s why you are always against them. What you talk is what you think. Look at your provinces Luapula, Northern and Muchinga what do you export to the other provinces, nothing apart from prostitutes and thieves. The majority of thieves in prisons are bembas. Compare with Southern province; mind you only one province unlike you with 3 provinces. There’s electricity, sugar, maize, tourism, beef, gemstones, nickel. Ask yourself what’s the contribution of your impoverished provinces to the national treasury nothing. We don’t want tribalists like you, you are holding the country back. Kambwili stop feeling too…

    • @Ikowa James
      Please insult Kambwili alone if he talks nonsense and not all the people from the provinces you’ve mentioned. I am a Northerner who is totally against what Kambwili is doing and for your own information, I will vote for HH and UPND. So don’t insult people collectively per region as this does not make you any different from the f00lish guy you trying to condemn.

  49. Mr(Dr) Kambwili is one of the most inflammatory leaders in Zambia. He does not understand the role a true leader must play in Uniting the country. Every time he talks, its about tribe and always speaks in derogatory and condescending ways about the Tonga as a people, and he hopes this will endear them to him?. Kambwili,by not selling his message to the people of southern province but calling them names will not win him any votes.
    Secondly, Kambwili must get his facts right before he opens his mouth. HH (as at yesterday) was in Livingstone, and has been to Choma, Monze, Mazabuka, Katombora, Maamba, Pemba this week and last, all of which are in Southern province(Campaigning seriously).
    Thirdy,in 1991,all the constituencies is Southern province voted unanimously for Chiluba, who was a non…

  50. Kambwili, Zambians want a leader who will move the country forward economically not tribal politics. I am a Namwanga and i have seen what we gone through since PF came to power. Its just suffering and we were even better off during RB’s tenure. Tribal talk will not help PF this time.

    • Ba Jack mulenga muli ba tonga from namwala and you aren’t a namwanga. We know that all people who claim to be from north east or cb are actually tongas. Ever heard or ready anyone saying am Tonga and I will vote for Pf and Ecl? None. Does that ring bells in you thick skull.

  51. Those criticising Kambwili are either severely brain dead or hard core tribalists. In the 2015 Presidential election HH got 780,168 votes; half of those votes from his tribesmen in Southern Province. Similar patterns are evident in 2006, 2008 and 2011 elections. How much evidence do Zambian voters in Northern, Luapula and Eastern Provinces want before they can apply the “Southern Province “model? I’m yet to meet a tonga person who doesn’t support HH or hates the music of Smokey Haangala.

  52. The issues affronted by some bloggers here leaves alot to desire. there is no justification in Kambwilis continued use of such speech at every rally. he may have a reason but let him not act ignorant of the voting patterns in the country. last year Edgar Lungu got maximum votes from the Eastern province, but did Kambwili and his Hogwarts notice? did he also notice that Muchinga, Northern and LUapula gave Sata maximum votes in 2011? did he notice that in 2006, Mwanawasa got maximum votes from central province? has he also noticed that Edgar lately got admirable crowds to his rallies in Southern province? the answer to all these questions is a big resounding NO! this is what happens when you get crowded by hate that you cant see reality flushing in your face. let him also remember that his…

  53. Kambwili could be very wrong. Much as one would say the Tongas may not vote for ECL, one vote from Southern Province can make a difference for Lungu …it is 50%+1. this vote can be a stray vote but could make a difference for him. Let us stop this tribal thing Kambwili and Mumbi Phiri and Doria Siliya talk about. PF has some Tongas in the party, how are they feeling now?Does PF have party structures in Southern Province? PF Tongas in Southern Province may find it hard to convince their tribal mates after these SILLY and Uncalculated remarks by Kambwili. ECL should condemn this strongly though him too said areas where he will get less votes will receive little or no development. People of Zambia evaluate the kind of leader we have in Kambwili.

  54. HH Tichilema, you are a fool. Is Guy Scot. Miles Sampa, Mutale Nalumango, Nevers Mumba and all those supporting HH are tongas? You are the people who are letting us down because all you think is tonga, is luvale. Go to my home place chief Katyetye in Isoka, there is a wind of change coming. Ukuvwanga?

  55. PF has no message to tell voters all they want is by all means to cling to power which unfortunately is out of reach in 2016. We don’t belong to stone age politics of Mr Kambwili all we want is to see justice prevail for the crimes committed against Zambians come 11th August. The blood of innocent Zambians killed by Kambwili and his Master are in their hands. Tribal politics will no work for PF

  56. LACK OF TACT IN SPEECH!This is just like Lungu saying ” I will concentrate development in areas I will be voted” – a wise thing to do but wrong to say! “Vote like Southerners do…” – is wise to say if one does not add tribe! In Jan’15 Southern had the best turn out and voted overwhelmingly for their preferred candidate. That is all enough to wake up people on what to do! “If you like PF and its candidate,then turn out in huge numbers and vote likewise”! No need for tribe this, that- voters are adults they will get the message! LUNGU is NOT BEMBA but wants Bembas to vote for him but a party that largely exploits tribe, regionalism have been citing this a reason Bembas should vote for them since their VP is Bemba. And that VP says Lungu put a Lozi as VP instead of a Bemba so don’t…

    • ..cont’d .. so don’t vote for him (Lungu). The hurting in PF is understood! Sata got 95% in Luapula with out going there to campaign but he went to do expensive projects in Southern and Western provinces forgetting Luapula and other strongholds in the hope that he would win the hearts of people there and diffuse UPND’s stranglehold on these provinces.But in Jan’15 it was proved that whatever amount of development one would do in these areas would not change people’s perception about PF unless a leader comes from their areas! That is what could be hurting Kambwili bcoz some of the support that has been eroded in their strongholds is bcoz promises have not been fulfilled since they went flat out to do more where they will never be appreciated!

  57. Pf has taken massive developments in southern. Wait for the election results and that’s when we are going to see whether the chuundus vote for development or tribe. Facts already there on the ground that they vote for tribe other than development. We have them a benefit of doubt in 2015 but they unanimously voted on tribal lines. Why should we give them another chance? This time is to do as they do.

  58. The difference between what HH and ECL got is that Half of the votes for HH came from SP while ECL got almost nothing from SP while HH got votes from other parts of the country.

  59. HH forward come 11th August. You will be asked to arrest all illegal ministers drawing funds from government, prosecute all killers of Mapenzi and others who were shot dead or injured. I can’t wait to vote on 11th.

  60. Hey guys!!!! Kambwili may be a wrong person to voice out the immoral voting pattern of Southern Province but the truth remains in his voice. Other regions this time around will vote like our dear brothers and sisters of Southern province. We love them so much that is why we are emulating them this time.

  61. Dr Kambwili is very much right on his remarks. We need to copy and paste the Southern province way. Even if Jesus had to stand on a different party, Tongas cant vote for him, they would rather vote for a Flog or their faeces than Jesus. This is total madness by the tonga’s to the fullest. Tongas are very evil people. Iam even advising Edgar and the PF Team not to even waste their resources by going in Southern and North-Western Province to campaign. Let them concentrate and develop areas where they have also been ripping massive votes. Its not fair to waste time developing tribal provinces where Edagr and the PF Team will not be voted. Let the cows vote for HH. No wonder chiefs like Chief Mukuni banyela pa banji jumping

  62. In your wisdom Dr Kambwili whom should those whose tribes men/woman are not standing vote for? We are told Tongas will vote for a Tonga and Bembas for a “bemba” ECL.

  63. ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION, THATS IT! IF WE SPEAK TRIBES WE SHALL DIVIDE THE NATION! KABWILI STOP THE ROT, WE ALL LOVE EDGAR, WE ALL LOVE HH, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE SLOT FOR PRESIDENCY, THE WINNER OF THE ELECTION TAKES IT AND WE MOVE ON. WE CANT ALL BE PRESIDENTS PLEASE TWAPAPATA, TWAKOMBA! ABASH TIBALISM

  64. Does this mean that Northern and Southern should vote for UPND? Western and Eastern for PF? The levels of dullness in some bloggers are appalling. The tribal jibe has lost its sting. How can adults with grey hair in their nether regions propagate tribalism? Totally disgusting! Even you ba Kambwili, try to exhibit some level of maturity. Do not douse kerosene on your crouch and sit back to enjoy a cigarette.

  65. There formula is NEGA NEGA but we will show them the copy and paste way of voting and they will never repeat in there entire lives.And its good that it has come at the right time when they need most of our votes kai its tier last chance.ridding on bembas and Easterners will not work.Mwaliitaya kale Tongas

  66. 14,000 to 0, was bad…ku monze
    Ba tonga are passionate.
    We need to show them that we are
    More passionate than them.
    Dr K is very much right.

  67. With all due respect to Dr Kambwili, a leader of his status (or any status for that matter), should not encourage tribal talk.

  68. KAMBWILI IS VERY DULL. HIS HATE FOR TONGAS WILL KILL THIS GUY. ISN’T IT KAMBWILI AND HIS MINIONS IN PF WHO ALWAYS RELEASE HASH TRIBAL REMARKS AGAINST THE TONGAS? UPND IS NOT FOR THE TONGAS, AND THIS , KAMBWILI IS FULLY AWARE OF. UPND IS FOR ALL THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. WHAT UPND HAS TO OFFER THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE IS WHAT IS ATTRACTING IN UPND. IT IS NOT ABOUT TRIBE. HOW CAN A SANE PERSON VOTE FOR THIEVES AND LOOTERS IN PF? HOW CAN A NORMAL PERSON VOTE FOR LUNGU FOR CONTINUED SUFFERING. HH AND HIS UPND TEAM HAVE A SOLUTION TO FIX ZAMBIA’S ECONOMY TO MAKE ZAMBIA A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN. WE WANT TO END THE CORRUPTION IN PF BY VOTING FOR UPND. UNDER UPND GOVERNMENT, EVERYONE WILL BE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME A BETTER CITIZEN. KAMBWILI SHOULD KNOW THAT UPND IS MORE UNIFYING THAN THE WAKO-NIWAKO…

  69. guys lets not argue here, everyone would want to defend his part but truth be told whether Tonga bemba, luvale , ila or whichever tribe you belong to. the pattern of voting demonstrated in the past 2015 presidential by elections where tribal on the part of southern province. numbers don’t lie unless you are dull in terms of mathematics. you can calculate percentages for you to compare properly, or all the figure should be at the same base. how can one get 200 and another 29000 while others 0.in which province has this happened.
    but Dr CK is wrong to use that as a campaign strategy because he will be dividing us Zambians.the more he talks about it the more people here about tribalism.i believe in the principle garbage in garbage out. the massage that we input in our heads will produce…

  70. PF thugs including ECL will be tamed on 12th Aug for senseless killings of innocent Zambians including Mapenzi and other lost souls. Tribal talk will not win them elections.

  71. What tribe are the Chingola voters? I RESERVE OTHER QUESTIONS::::: If southerners have understood HH’s message better than others contenders, they cannot be blamed for voting for him, just like Northerners and Kopalas cannot be blamed when they give a vote to a candidate whose messege has convinced them the most, and is in harmony with their aspirations and hopes… This is the bottom line as one seeks public office: Make the people see less contradictions in your works, words and deeds as you turn to them.. Not only SONTA apo wabomba without mentioning who BOMBAD and who/ how the loans na Euro bonds will be settled.. And HH has also the task to tell the masses on how he wishes to reduce the costs of infrastructure so that we can SONTA togather how the hard earned revenew by Zambian…

  72. We shall do the same Honourable Kambwili. We need sot show them that we also have the muscle to vote our own. Wako ni Wako……

  73. it is trible if a Tonga man supports HH but mupezeni & the wako ni wako group it’s not trible remember HH has challenged every one of those scrumming of trible can’t even speak other languages from other provinces HH speaks lozi Nyanja bemba luvale which even sata never tried to speak Chishimba kambwili is very stupid if he is not a triblelist can he go southern province & greet people in Tonga NW/province to say mulingachili mwane he is. a big triblelist let’s forget this trible but forces on how the PF will handle the economic problems. in the country for another 5 years

  74. so imwe ba ***** you want us to suffer all in the name of voting for your tribes men???… lungu has failed this country and that ent a secrete. am not bemba or tonga but am voting for quality

  75. i am afraid to see such high levels of anger from upnd supporters. Dr Kambwili is very right.What you are blaming him for was started by MUNKOMBWE,echoed by chief MUKUNI. In fact MUNKOMBWE has continued preaching the same message. Dr KAMBWILI VERY CORRECT.

  76. People of Zambia on the 11 August Vote for HH and team,while PF is Preaching hatred among tribes UPND is uniting them. Kabwili, please stop insulting the Tonga’s they are far much better people hardworking, wise and knowledgeable they are not as selfish as you claim. Am bemba but my wife is Tonga she voted for PF yet imwe bachipuba this is all you have to say? where is your 72 pages manifesto,its boring you cannot even explain it not convincing.

  77. 1. “Lord, I thank you that I am not like HH. I pray to you in front of the camera for the whole earth to see, I sonta at every project as my achievement though I initiated none, I misused taxpayers’ money, I accumulated wealth corruptly, managed to manipulate the constitution to retain my cabinet, taxpayers’ money I distribute to my cadre marketeers and, Oh Lord, the list is endless. Now I beseech thee that You watch out my helicopter does not crash your holy seat in the sky as I continue flying around the country aimlessly, declaring every Bemba village a District. Protect my violent cadres from the watchful eyes of the opposition and let every UCZ reverand declare my victory come August 11. All my moslem friends accept my pretence. Amen”

  78. Bane’ copy and paste. Finito!!@ Kanoganibo!!! Even if kabwilli didnt say so we witnessed the style and we shall use it so that the initiators of the voting style should test their own medicine. We need them to appreciate that we are one zambia and one nation and that we are not islands. We need other tribes too. A tribe that even celebrates when some one dies??? Even if its your worst enemy awe sure!!!

  79. Kambwili is also dull and foolish also, alcohol can you call your tribesman to vote for the easterners and tell other to not to vote for another tribe, you are dull mundala, and I can’t break up my family just for your political gain,,,, lastly you stop thinking with your neck, you have lost two votes from chingola

  80. truth pains so Tonga’s thot we a very dull and we av forgotten their voting pattern since they can’t admit wat they did that it was wrong we will emulate them cos it was gud. and it is true that where u find a Tonga always supports hh but other tribes support different candidates why? guys let’s do the same
