    • He shouldn’t have been appointed as minster in the first place, the man is arrogant, divisive and corrupt. And i hope he will be made to pay back for GRZ contracts he got and never delivered….. eg he got over 3 million Kwacha to build a market in Mwense but 4 yrs down the line not even a foundation has been put.

      And he not even a real Dr, got his doctorate from a pre-school

      It good that Lungu is chasing away the corrupt ministers, next should be Dora and Kapata, they stink of corruption.

    • Oooh! no!, what has CK done? Kindly furnish me with some information here. I am lost. First, his appointment was rather slow and sluggish, now he is fired. Is he one of those Ministers cited for corrupt practices? If yes, ACC kindly move in. Let CK be set as an example.

    • Haha haha…..Kijiji…Mr Chishima Kambwili, if you care to be reminded, read my contributions of last and early this week. I told those who cared to read my contributions that the IMF has withheld money to Zambia until ‘next year’s because of, inter alia, corruption, no media adherence, bad governance by the PF and I further said, if President Lungu wants the IMF money, he must clean his house meaning fighting corruption, adherence to media ethics and most importantly, adhere to good governance. Unfortunately for you Mr Kambwili, you finger-prints are all over, be it non adherence of Media ethics, corruption, non adherence to good governance etc, etc. Though I am a staunch UPND, I salute the President on this one. Hats off Mr President.

    • Chishimba has been one of the most corrupt Ministers. He started with his scrap metal business and when he entered the corridors of power he started terrorizing the mine officials to give him contracts. He still runs several contracts with mines if Luanshya and Chingola etc.
      I am sure some truth about his conduct has been reported to His Excellency ECL – and sure to his word ECL is taking ACTION VERY STRONGLY TO DETER OTHER WOULD BE CORRUPT MINISTERS/OFFICIALS.
      This is just the beginning; we have a bigger list.

    • RB or not Lungu has2play by IMF. Not cos ECL wants clean GRZ but it’s precondition by IMF b4 he can access their loan.
      When ECL is seen 2go along loans willb rolling.
      It’s a replay of 1993 when Chiluba was forced 2fire VJ & Sikota. That’s when Sikoka conned ‘Mbala Mafia’ who he suspected of trying 2hound them out.

    • The best news I have heard in months! Kashimba Chimbwi should not have made the cabinet list in a normal or, to be precise, legitimate government. After stealing the vote, the ldiots were quick to share jobs without looking around them.

    • Next should be the so called Fr. Bwalya….

      He is another character causing tension in Zambia.
      Lately, he has been quiet, I believe he heard something was in the cooking, so to save his face, he kis keeping a low profile.

I am sure many of us have seen it on many walls and notice boards in places we visit and it becomes very pronounced to many like now the likes of Kambwili!

    • @Mr Kudos (Halloween), HH is the one who will fire the entire PF including yourself. I had humbly requested you to follow up Francis Kaunda who was the leader of the ZCCM Privatisation Team and Chairman of ZCCM, Valentine Chitalu who was the Chief executive officer of the Zambian Privatisation Agency and such Board Members who are still alive like Enoch Kavindele but you have failed. The following deceased Board Members can be visited posthumously: Willa Munyimba, Edward Shamutete, Luke Mwananshiku and Ronald Penza. These men played a major role in stealing our wealth during the Privatisation exercise not HH.

  3. So this is the King of Corruption Lungu was on about last week. I thought he had RB’s people in mind like Mutati and Siliya.

  4. Interesting. So, is Kambwili one of the corrupt ministers receiving huge stacks of money into his account? Or is it something else? This is exciting though because Kambwili has presidential ambitions and may have started making his moves for takeover of the party in 2021.

  7. It is unfortunate that MMD was voted out of power by the people of Zambia but it is ruling us again shame. Corrupt ministers such as Dora siliya are supposed to be dismissed but they are enjoying if Sata rose from the dead today he would be very surprised to find that corrupt people and mmd have taken over the party he fought for, Pf

    For the first time I have supported Lungu and he should now fire STEVE CHUNGU for stealing cars, money laundering and DORA SILLIYA, JEAN KAPATA and NKANDU LUO they should all go.

So many out there who are pleased to see his back.

Anyway CHIMBWILI knew about this when he developed BP. He wasn’t supposed to serve in the new govt but was excused because he almost died in ndola hospital.
    NOW THE TOOTHLESS ACC MUST QUICKLY POUNCE ON HIM. . With his BIG MOUTH he is better of in the opposition. But why did Lungu appoint mulenga kampamba instead of me coz im better suited for the job??

  33. We all knew that the president was not in good terms with mr kambwili. He tried to pretend but it could be felt even then. He only wanted to use mr kambwili coz even after the election, one could tell by way of his late appointment. So sad he will have no friends to support him but it will be easy for the president to silence him becoz people will be happy to see him suffer.I was supprisse he never realised that. Of course i was very sad with his trible campain on the copperbelt.

  35. Sad news to learn about the dismissal of Hon Chishimba Kambwili . However, this should not be a surprise to him because he failed to cage his mouth many a times. They say life and death are in the power of the tongue and the former hon min. did not realize this. Its a pity to lose such a high paying job at the time when things are not going well for Zambia. Even though am a UPND symphathizer i real feel bad about it to say the least. Let us learn to allow love to lead us. The Bible tells us to rejoice with those who are rejoicing and to mourn with those who are mourning. Mr Kambwili surely needs yours and my prayers. Let us remember him together with his family. My man, gather yourself up and move on…this is Zambia for you. God bless!!!

  38. Elyo lekeni lunye bebele! Apparently it was all because during their cabinet meeting last week Tuesday, Kambwili was seated next to Chagwa opposite the veep when he let go of a poisonous “scrap metal” fart, it sent the poor old firl Inonge into some fitts. Lungu himself started acted crazy like he was high on ‘jamesons’. Kambwili is a mobile radioactive baboon! After the meeting, Chagwa consulted RB who ordered him to fire the baboon instantly, whence today’s sacking. Kambwili mwaiche wandi, ubuchende uleke!

  39. Good riddance and well done, ECL. I was extremely troubled by this man’s appointment, a man who could fabricated a honorary doctorate award without shame. It was a major stain our nation’s integrity, just like the culture of corruption surrounding the many other ministers. Get the issue of illegal land occupation by cadres and councillors also sorted out. How can cadres become a group above the law? If it continues, citizens will begin to take the law into their own hands and deal with the situation. Although ECL’s own path has been paved by illegalities, it is time for him to demonstrated that he will work to eliminate the terrible state of law in our country. Congratulations for getting rid of the fake `doctor’.

  44. That’s very good news because politicians of the Chimbwili Kashimba type and diapers have one thing in common: they should both be changed regularly… and for the same reason. Apparently this sacking has been coming for a while now, Chagwa sent “baShushushu” to the Copper Mines last week asking if they would give Kambwili a kick-back, 100% of the financial offcers in the mines said, “Not again.” Now that he has been fired, let’s see how he is going to sustain that chilufumo and neck of his!

  47. Good morning your Excellency Edgar Lungu. I do not like the fact that you got into office by swearing yourself into it, BUT I love what you have done…firing Chishimba Kambwili. This man was a an example of living human trash in a government office. His utterances against Tonga People was a clear sign of insanity and acute ignorance about our beloved country’s history. I am not your fan, I support UPND, BUT I wish to congratulate you for doing the correct thing for Zambia by firing this thug. We have enough problems as a country which do not require us to be fanning tribal wars! Kambwili ‘s firing is a correct step in the right direction, towards a better country with respect for all tribes and no corruption. I know stopping corruption may be as tough as taking out your molars, but you…

  48. I thank the Lord our Father who art in heaven and praise be to Him for such a blessing. Kambwili never regarded the humanity in my Tonga tribe and at least for now, we shall be free from such painful insults on a TV that we month pay for watching such evil.

  51. Outside the USA, Canada and other Western Countries, development can only take place with a bit of dictatorship. The western democracy and its so-called human rights is a breeding ground for corruption in developing countries. Worst of all is patronage as a result of fearing to lose elections. We need some iron fist.

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.Today his excellence Edgar Chagwa has fired me as minister of information and broadcasting services barely two months after being appointed in the position.This should not come as a surprise because it is within his prerogative powers to appoint and disappoint his ministers.Recently the president of Nepal fired his his information minister,David Cameroon resigned as UK PM,Bulgarian information minister was fired last week.So my firing as minister of infornation is Global which shall soon pass.
    I thank you
    Hon. Chishimba Kambwili MP

  55. Chishimba I told you so Zambia ya nyoko so now welcome to the post or rather the mast.Amid jubilation,the appointment as his replacement leaves much to be desired,The presido should have gone for brains rather than beauty,there’s nothing that qualifies her to be a minister when there’s a whole load of of mps with qualifications like Mwalimu Simfukwe(mbala central) PhD economics plus many others.When madam Kampamba was Dc Kalulushi under Sata she was fired and had her offices locked up by ACC due to corruption allegations having built her mansion in less than a month in kalulushi,she was just a cadre begging for votes and couldn’t even speak fluent English.Hope she turns the tide in information sector which I doubt very much,for her it’s actually job on training…..

  56. Yes Kambwili, go earn yourself a real job instead of stealing from taxpayers and corruption practices. We all knew that you were a mammal – you breathe air, and drink water, BUT you were not a human being from your lack of brains by insulting other tribes just because they are not like your tribe!!

  57. For me, this man was only good if he was on your side. No objectivity in him whatsoever. But I also remember him for failing just to name a stadium – Gabon Disaster National Heroes Stadium. And in his usual primitive bullying manner, the guy says this decision is final. The best riddance the country has seen since 1964

  59. Thank you for your services hon. Wish we knew more on why you have been dismissed of your duties, Is ti because the issue of Zamtel and Zesco licked out and you been the information minister probably got accused of using the grape vine method to hear our views. TELL LUNGU NOT TO TOUCH ZAMTEL AND ZESCO. The companies belong to us, the real zambians, not imwe aba mu Rhodesia. All the best in your future endeavors hon.

  61. All the days can not be for a thief one day is for the owner.I only hope ELC is not rebranding PF into MMD reloaded.RB and CK have a bad history and RB is vindictive i hope he did not influence the firing of CK who was once upon time untouchable.I think he is the only minister with the shortest serving time in office in our history

  62. Surely the truth pains.Most of the comments coming from UPND cadres are so provocative.
    I liked CK because he used to call a spade a spade and this is what used to annoy UPND.
    Just check your voting pattern and you believe me that CK was right.
    The only advice i can give to Hon CK is to behave like Given Lubinda.Alot was said about him until time came whem-n his name was cleared.
    Let us wait and see.

    • iam a bemba in full support of UPND,Now my fellow UPND supporters,i know you are happy about the sad development of chishimba kambwili.i know chishimba kambwili’s bad language as well,but he is not alone of that nature,the game of tribal remarks is becoming too much almost to every tribe,but the thing is,if the president had to fire kambwili on corruption allegations,let him fire him self together with the entire pf ministers,all of them are corrupt,Lungu is no longer a clean person.and more over ,he is just harvesting where he did not even cultiveted,all those who brought the PF are gone,ILI MUMINWE YAMILUBAFWA,those who is thanking LUNGU,have you forgotten how this same LUNGU acted when stealing last election votes?,president LUNGU and CHISHIMBA K,they are just the same.

  64. Bloggers on this site have for a long time been advising Kambwili to be careful and not think he is the smartest know-it-all guy. He never shut his big mouth, intimidating everyone as he wishes. On the other hand Lungu should not make Kambwili his easy meat to shield bigger criminals based at state house. The sackings should not take a break but continue rapidly all the way up to Lungu himself. Surely it doesn’t make sense to withhold reasons for Kambwili’s sacking.

  65. It surprising that you’re asking for reasons so early. Why not wait? The president has very solid reasons for him to sack such a “strong cadre “

  66. Losing a job is not the best thing that can happen to another human being. So in spite of all the wrongs that we may suppose the former honourable minister may have indulged himself in we still need to sympathize with him. It’s not for us to judge him. There are departments which can deal with whatever corruption he might have got himself into. Yes, and his God alone can judge him.
    There is at least one thing that other MPs and government leaders can learn from Mr. Kambwili – that is, do something to impower yourself while you still have the means and opportunity to do so. Mr. Kambwili earned himself a doctorate qualification. Whether it is honorary or academic it does not matter. It means he was doing something to deserve it.
    There are some who have been serving with this government…

  71. What goes round comes around. Chishimba Kambwili has is an example of a failed politician sustained only by tribalism, cronyism, thuggary, and hoodlum. Chishimba Kambwili began as foreign affairs minister- failed, minister of labour- failed, minister of youths and sports- failed again. Now minister of information- failed too and fired as minister paving way for ACC to act as per president Lungu’s directive. Chishimba has stolen through abuse of office power a list of things including allocation of Luansha golf land to himself, built houses on illegal land, stripped railway line from Ndola to Luanshya, a suitcase of money distributed to youths in Zambia without any accountability, forcing mines to ward him contracts the list is endless.
    I suspect Kambwili will start his own party,…

  74. Good evening my brothers and sisters, enemies and friends. Kambwili’s firing is a sign of lungu’s arbitrary and dictatorial tendencies. Look we know that kambwili was a corrupt, tribal bigot but to fire him through media without recourse to the legalities involved in firing a government officer is just plain mediocre. Also, it is strange that the so called president is firing a cabinet minister just few weeks after appointment. Surely, this is sign that these appointments do not undergo scrutiny. Because, surely whatever kambwili did should already have been known by lungu’s so called advisers. So lungu, you havent won any brownie points, all you have done is prove UPND right that your government is corrupt and that you are a dictator. Good evening zambians. kambwili will now put tail…

  75. Zambians are too immature for development, it sure wont come anytime soon. Yes Kambwili may have been too loud, made mistakes and needed to be moved, but after going through all these comments I have not seen one person, …..one person, questioning who this in coming person is. What qualification does the person replacing him have? No Tertiary Education, other than being Mutatis sister inlaw, how many people in media have qualifications for this job? CK was not fit for this office either and this ministry is crucial.

    • I personally know this girl. She’s been to good Catholic schools and she comes from one of the wealthy families. She has been a leader in PF since 2001. As for her being Mutati ‘s in law (which I am not aware of though I’ve been friends with the Mutatis since the 80s) it cannot be a reason for either appointing or not appointing her.

  76. Suddenly some people think Lungu is ‘great’ after firing one bad egg while a host of others are still in his government, including himself. Such piecemeal actions (after he has borrowed some false teeth, probably from RB) don’t camouflage the fact that this whole lot of ‘governors’ are tainted or have no vision to lead whatsoever.
    Since the elections no serious ‘blueprint’ for the way ahead has been presented. You would think a leader that has just been elected would boldly and robustly in his own words tell the nation through a press conference what his/her plan is (not a hollow ‘usual’ opening Parliamentary address) Its still just swearing in, opening this and that gathering, following and harassing the opposition and generally not offering any direction.

  84. It’s very shameful to hear people say “it’s wrong to fire Kambwili because he worked hard for PF to win the elections “. No wonder we have been going down. If the guy is corrupt, no matter what good he’s done, he has to face the law.

  85. Kambwili has just lived by the PF manifesto “more money in people’s pockets”. He is a living example of how we can have more money in our pockets. The Kambwili way is the way to go fellow Zambians.

  86. While in NDOLA I used to see Kambwili in the Back seat of the GRZ Toyota land cruiser being driven every weekend heading to Luanshya.Afar the Cruiser seemed to have carried a small Hippo at the back of the seat.
    This man decampaigned Pf in Southern province by his hate speech about the Tongas.

  88. Its funny how people on this forum can support Ch*i Kambwili. All that property he has with stolen money in fact tax payers money which is your money and you are saying its ok? Unless you are the girlfriend, boyfriend, ba bululu, kids, wife, concubine then we understand where this is going. But to people who have nothing, how do you feel when you see the lavish lifestyle this chap has while you are suffering? Miners lost their jobs and have nothing yet look at this guy with everything taking away your money. Is it really fair to say he works so hard yet it’s stolen land he built those property. He needs to pay everything back and repossess everything. The government should make she he never works in the government again.

  89. Today you look into Kashimba Chimbwli’s eyes & you see the fear & confusion of a man who has just been told he’s got stage-four “cervical cancer”. He is a super-villain in a tribalistic world without heroes, a man so obnoxious and unhappy that karma may see him reincarnated as a rabid dog. You kind of wish he’d get therapy, but at this stage it’s like hiring a window cleaner for a burning building. Sometimes one is given to wonder why the good lord God almight would endower one of his own creations with such a wealth of uncouthness and tribal bigotry. Or maybe its drugs the lumpen is sniffing that make him to be so overly obnoxious, what a vile Kasai baboon!
