Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili
Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has described as baseless a story attributed to him on social media suggesting that he would eliminate Tongas if given an opportunity.

Dr Kambwili says the article has been authored by unscrupulous people and that such statements are meant to create tension between him and the Tongas.

He has since apologised to the Tongas for any discomfort that the false story might have caused to them.

Dr Kambwili has since reported the matter to police headquarters.

And Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has confirmed receipt of a complaint from Dr Kambwili.

Ms Katongo said the Police are taking the matter seriously as it has the potential to cause anarchy in the country.

Meanwhile, Dr Kambwili has said that opposition UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema and his deputy, Geoffrey Mwamba should not expect to go scot-free whenever they break the law.

Dr Kambwili who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services said that the police are justified to have arrested Mr Hichilema and Mr Mwamba for inciting people not to recognise a legitimately elected government.

Dr Kambwili said that police are mandated to arrest any law breaker regardless of their status in society adding that the two UPND leaders are not above the law.

    • When your friends in Rwanda are thinking of 21st century problems, like smart technological innovation, you in Zambia are its fighting with 19 century problems of tribalism. What a shame!!!

    • @1 NEZ, you are the real Chimpanzee,an African who calls a fellow African Chimpanzee much to the delight of anti-black racists! And you claim to be educated?? You will never be the one to decide how people die! The one you wish to live longer may even die earlier!

  2. Not sure if this allegation is true, but one can safely say Tribalism has become a growing Cancer, & of real concern since P.F. came to power.
    The facts don’t lie, which is a real shame, as despite K.K’s flaws which are human, he left a country free of Evil Tribalism.

    • If you’ve been a keen follower of Zambian politics you will agree with me that Fred Membe(HH’s current best friend) was the one who labeled HH a tribalist and made it stick on him.

    • Tribalists are running govt now, from Lungu, Chimbwili, Emmanuel Mwamba to Davies Chama. These people are daily scheming how to subjugate and eliminate non-Bembas and non-Nyanjas from all spheres of public life.

  4. The fact is Kambwili hates Tongas with a passion and he can’t run away from that fact! For those of us who have met this buffon in person can testify the hatred that this uncivilized man harbors against Tongas. If you are Tonga don’t be with this I’d!ot alone in a secluded place! That’s a timely warning!

    • @Kaputo: I would suggest that any Tonga who meets this gorilla alone in a dark place should just do the honours and stick a knife in his fat chest. People like Chimbwili have no place in a modern society.

  5. Which apology when you have insulted Tongas on several occasions.If God is the one who created Tongas and you then your mouth will land you in problems.If the God whom we serve is there in heaven and he listens to the cries of his people then God knows the end of Kambwili.
    You are clever today but where is Shakafwasa.May God deeply deal with you and time will tell by 2021.
    Have your nice day today but wait what will tomorrow do for you

  6. Dr Kambwili is in the office working for his country and his people. The man works harder that the President, who appears to behave like a PF cadre and a swears in anythings that comes in front of him.

      AG has been CHRYSTAL clear on the subject, neither Mr. Kambwili or his fellow plunderers are in office “…working for his country and his people. ” but they are there just for the money. Working for the Country and the People of Zambia is equivalent to “Slavery”!!!
      His (AG) words, no mine.

  7. Iam Tonga but I like kambwili..! I can’t hate him over rumours..! One thing u cannot take out of him is his assertiveness and courage wen it comes to saying the truth..! Kambwili is perceived as a bad person because he is straight forward in his words. We need people like him as president..! Their is a very thin line between kambwili and late president Michael Sata…mhsrip. Police should investigate and arrest all those involved in circulating false tribal related hatred articles..! We need peace in Zambia. One Zambia one nation..!

    • @Buck Teeth HH ….Munene says he’s Tonga so what’s your problem. You’re just confirming our fears that some of you want to use tribalism as a ladder to the presidency. You cannot force all Tongas to hate someone for no reason.

  8. What is it about Tongas? so that everyday we are hearing their Identity problems. We are all created in the image of God and the real identity is in God not in a tribe. I feel as a counselor they have a real issue of identity and are fighting for recognition. I may be wrong or right. Just thinking!

  9. There is nothing wrong for Kabwili not to like something or someone, But he has to love all becasue they are created in the image of God. He my dislike their actions and behavior but he has to love including enemies. Thats the bible way.

  10. We all remember how this corrupt bitter tribalist went on the nations air waves to peddle a fake story of a bemba school teacher woman being attacked in SP for being bemba.

    The story turned out to be fake and like the hutu ministers inciting genocide in rwanda on air during Rwanda genocide this baffun carried on with his tribal hatreds.

  11. Upnd kants think that if HH is not president then Zambia is heading to one party state. When we say Upnd is for under 5 this is what we mean. There are so many opposition leaders in Zambia besides this shetanist who can make good presidents than him. We shall continue changing presidents however hh will NEVER be a republican president. Those who are still in doubt will just be wasting their time praising hh and living a painful life.

    • The agony of being a PF kaponya is ….

      You dream , sleep , eat , wake up thinking about HH.

      In fact HH is in every thought that you think.
      That is the power of the man. Say no more…

    • Because he is a gorilla tribalist. The first record I have of him going at this tribal crap was in 2010 when he called NWPers as nyamazai in Luanshya. He even followed protestors to the Civic Centres to hurl insults at them. He has not stopped since. We should really be eliminating these tribal haters. Nobody will do it for us but ourselves.

  13. I am very surprised and shocked to here Kambwili say he is not a hater for the Tongas. How many times has he kept on mentioning that Tongas are tribal? How many times has he refuted the Tonga voting that as long as Jesus was not Tonga and a stone is placed before them, the Tongas will vote for a stone than on Jesus? Why today refuse what you said? Does this mean that you want to win the favor from the Tonga people while your words are in the minds of all Zambians? A truth can not be changed dear brother. Since you have come back to your senses please just sorry and forgive me.

  14. Kambwili, Davis Chama, Mumbi Phiri, Chanda, Frank Bwalya are the most Tonga haters and if you go deep down their hearts you shall be surprised on what they think Tonga were to them. Tongas are not their tribal cousins but the speeches and running comments exposes them out to be the most worst haters. There are good Bembas who have respect for all tribes but not these guys and for see them taken to hell if they shall never repent.

  15. Yesterday the Catholic Church Pope Francis celebrated with journalists, and expressed worry on the untruths being published in many newspapers . Indeed these reporters are abusing the adage PEN Is Mighty. Most authors are based in America and don’t care what happens to us here at home. Most unfortunate people seem to cherish these divisive stories. Even the current false hope haunting HH on election “victory ” is a product from such irresponsible stories.

  16. @2.1 Ba sebeza, I have a copy of such a Post newspaper. Now reading the comments you can easily conclude how much people can easily be swayed into hatred. The commentators have abundantly exposed how much hate they harbor for other people. If I were Tonga I would rubbish such reports rather than getting worked up.

  17. Kambwili is among the PFs strong men and women so the Upnd propaganda machine would like Edgar to get rid of him. If joins them, this talk of him being a Tonga Hater will be erased from their computers. He’ll be a hero, a national unifier, true son of mother Zambia.

  20. Breaking what law ???? We were freed from coloniasim 50 years ago but yet we choose to keep colonial laws in place !!!! PF calls Zambia a democratic country just to win favours from IMF and the rest of the world. In a democratic country people would not be arrested for going to visit people in jail. Newspapers, tv and radio statioons would not be closed because they voice the opinion of the opposition. Opposition would be allowed to be interviewed on state broadcasting radio and tv stations. Kambwili thinks he can sit in his office and insult people and get away with it by saying IT WAS NOT ME…how many times are you still going to say that.

  21. There are so many false stories in the news today. I wonder what authorities like MISA are doing especially to known media reporting lies.
    Dr Banda allegations
    Nevers Mumba joined UPND
    Dr Kambwili hates Tongas
    Mulenga Sata wants to go back to PF
    list is endless.
    PF won elections. Lets move on and build our nation

  22. The nation is divided and peace seems to be elusive now more than ever before. Thew ruling PF regime is to blame. You have a need to assume statesmanship and unite all Zambians. Do not use the Police to harass your political opponents .Use your discretion and save mother Zambia. Get the warning of Mr. Mpombo seriously.””The political tensions are accumulating into a political boil and once it erupts there will be mayhem in Zambia.” Have a big heart and reduce the tension and bring back the peace we so cherish.Please do also concentrate on improving the lives of the people. This you have not done and there is more poverty now. The ball is in your court Mr. Lungu.

  23. WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES BUT HOW WE CORRECT THEM IS WHAT MATTERS MOST. LAST YEAR, HON. KAMBWILI DID PASS A COMMENT ON TONGAS & SO WERE CHAMA & MUMBI PHIRI. PEOPLE FROM SOUTHERN PROVINCE DID DEMAND FOR AN APOLOGY WHICH THE THREE REFUSED TO RENDER. THEN CAME ELECTIONS, DID U SURELY EXPECT THESE PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR U? AN APOLOGY SHOULD HAVE COME AT THAT TIME. IT IS STILL OKAY FOR HON. TO APOLOGIZE NOW BUT ITS A LITTLE TOO LATE. THE DAMAGE WAS ALREADY DONE. I GUESS ITS “KADYA NI KENA, MBILI NI YA KOSWE”

  25. IT IS WRONG TO CONTINUE SEEING A TRIBE IN EVERYTHING WE DO AS ZAMBIANS. NOBODY CHOOSES A RACE, TRIBE & ORIGIN. WE JUST FIND OURSELVES. IMAGINE WE HAD THAT PRIVILEGE, WHO WOULD BE IN ZAMBIA TODAY? THESE CHOICES ARE GOD’S PRESERVES & IN HIS INFINITY WISDOM, HE SAW IT FIT TO GIVE ZAMBIA 72 ETHNIC GROUPINGS. ON THE OTHER HAND, LETS STOP THE GENERALIZATION FALLACY. IT WAS ONE PERSON IN THE NAME OF SIACHEYE MEDYENKUKU WHO SAID ONLY A TONGA SHOULD TAKEOVER FROM MAZOKA. WHY SHOULD ONE MAN’S STUPID OPINION BE TAKEN TO REPRESENT THE ENTIRE PROVINCE? THIS SAME MAN IS TODAY IN WHICH PARTY? WHY HAVEN’T U CHASED HIM SINCE HE IS TRIBAL?

  27. Let the Tongas remove that hatred for the Bemba first and we should also follow suite. But as long as the Tonga’s do not change, then I see Kambwili and other Bembas fuming against them. The problem is that Bembas are naturally intelligent than Tongas. But, it is not the fault for the Bembas to hated by Tongas. These things like in this situation, you should ask God who create both tribes. Also, the Bemba tells me that you should not love your enemy. The more the enemy hates, and plan evil against you; it is the same with You and Your Prayer is to defeat all your enemies, Some body who hates you is an enemy
