Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili says he has no intentions of leaving the PF saying those trying to push him out should instead leave first.

Mr. Kambwili said he suffered for the PF and he was not going to leave it to newcomers.

The former Information Minister was speaking to Journalists at his residence in Lusaka on Monday afternoon.

“I was one of the five people that started the PF, how can I be against PF? And today online people are saying ‘we challenge Chishimba Kambwili to leave and go and form his own political party’ let me say and I have said this before ‘Mwaloba ilyauma.’ I will never leave PF, I have suffered for PF, I have been imprisoned over PF, I lost my businesses in MMD over PF,” he said.

“How many times have you been imprisoned yourself to call Chishimba Kambwili to leave PF? I was arrested five times in the opposition and put in prison for PF. And today you come from nowhere to say I should form my own political Party, it is you who should form your own political party, I have been there through thick and thin for PF. Now a few of you who have just joined PF you want to malign us, No! Join PF and let us work together,” Mr. Kambwili said.

Mr Kambwili also said that he is concerned about the growing bickering in the PF.

“I have called this press briefing to discuss a few things to express my concern over what is happening in our party. It must be noted that we formed the Patriotic Front as a pro-poor party to serve the people of Zambia. Now, I am extremely concerned that instead of serving the people of Zambia, we are spending more time on insulting one another, on attacking one another and working against one another. Let me make it very clear that you united we stand, and divided we fall,” he said.

Mr Kambwili further charged that the debates about 2021 elections was unnecessary.

“The debates on the 2021 presidential candidate for PF is unnecessary. I find it very unnecessary. Even the endorsements that have been going on all over the country are unnecessary. If you follow politics in Zambia, these are issues that bring division in the party. President Lungu was only elected I think eight plus or minus months ago and I think he needs to be given enough time to settle and deliver to the expectation of the Zambian people. I do not find it necessary for anybody to start endorsing that President Edgar Lungu shall be the sole candidate for then PF in 2021,” he said.

He said, “That is in my view, being irresponsible because every origination has its own constitution and for me as Chishimba Kambwili, I have been very consistent on the issues concerning the PF constitution.”

“When Mr. Sata died in 2015, you remember that there was a suggestion that the central committee would meet to choose the presidential candidate. I said no to that proposal and up to now, I am still saying no to any attempt to veer off the provisions of our constitution.”

He said the PF constitution on the election of the president of PF is very clear and that he does not see any reason why any person would want to veer off from ten provisions of the constitution.
“The constitution states, the president of the part, shall be elected by the general conference which shall be held every five years, end of quote. The constitution does not provide that if there is an incumbent president, there will be no elections in the coming five years,” he said.

“Look, former president Frederick Chiluba was an incumbent in 1996 after the 1991 elections. He was subjected to an election because that is what democracy entails. The likes of Levy Mwanawasa stood against him and because Chiluba was very popular at that time and sat so well with the general membership of MMD, he defeated Levy Mwanawasa. What is so different about the PF claiming that there will be a sole candidate in PF?” he asked.

“Let me make it very clear that PF will never entertain the issue of sole candidacy. Nobody, not even central committee would say that there would be a sole candidate to any position of the central committee. When we say this countrymen and women, we are not against President Edgar Lungu. What we fear is for us to be undemocratic and introduce tendencies that have got potential to destroy PF in future.”

“So, I find it very very unreasonable for anybody to start talking about 2021 because what we need to do right now as a party is to concentrate on service delivery and once the party performs… and I think it is not about an individual, it is a collective effort of the party, meaning those who are in cabinet, those who are in the committee and the general membership should work united together to support the manifesto of the PF which is being superintended by president Edgar Lungu to meet the aspirations of our people.”

He added, “When it comes to 2021, we will just look at the performance. If we come to 2021 and we have performed so well, and things are moving well, people will go to the convention and say oh, those who want to stand can stand but I think the general membership will say President Edgar Lungu has worked so well, we are electing him. All we are emphasizing is that there must be an election after five years.”

Mr Kambwili said those who think that they can drive an agenda of sole candidacy in PF are free to go and join the UPND where he said there are no elections.
“The UPND has had one president since Mazoka died for I don’t know how many ages. Every time there is a sole candidate. We don’t want that to happen to PF,” he said.
And Mr Kambwili says there are some people within the PF that are telling lies to President Edgar Lungu.

“Surely, you expect me, Chishimba Kambwili, to go and sponsor jerabos in Chingola to destabilize the Copperbelt so that president Edgar Lungu can lose the elections and I take advantage and become president? To me that is a lot of nonsense. Somebody goes to tell the President, a minister, your excellence, these jerabos who were killed in Chingola is Chishimba Kambwili who is organizing them. Where are we going? I have never been to Chingola since the beginning of this year.”

“Do I know the jerabos in Chingola? Do I know the jerabos on the Copperbelt? Comrades in PF, more especially those who have juts joined PF, I beg you, help us to build PF, don’t come and destroy for your selfish gains. Bootlickers have never meant well. All they want is to keep their positions. They speak for their pockets, they speak for their gains.”

He said, “Can you imagine, members of the press, a few ministers are now going to private companies where my company Mwamoneni Enbgineering, telling them, cancel the contracts, do not deal; with this company because the owner is not in good standing with the party. Where are we going? I have been a businessman before I came into politics.”

“Why do you want to destroy my business? Why do you want to destroy my business because today you are a minister? Come on, please stop it. It doesn’t help you. Today you are a permanent secretary and you go to a private company and say the president has directed us that you should cancel the contract of this company, for what? I have been in business since 1993 and I have been dealing with the mines since 1993. Why should you use your ministerial position to go and tell the mines to terminate contracts for Mwamoneni engineering? It doesn’t make sense!”

“The bible says he who rises by the sword, will fall by the sword. Do unto unto others as you want them do unto you. People may ask why I am I telling the press about this? I have tried my level best to meet the president, to sit down with him, to explain that some of the ministers have taken it upon themselves to go and destroy my business that I have suffered for and established in good faith. I have not used political power to establish my business. None of my businesses was established when I was a minister.”

He added, “All my businesses were established long before I became minister and I have been dealing with the mines for very long. Why should it take Bowman Lusambo to go and tell companies that they should not deal with me? Young man Lusambo, let me tell you, the direction you are taking is wrong. The direction you are taking is wrong.”
“That is not the way we run PF. Since Sata came into office, we have never squeezed anybody in business because the people you want to squeeze in business have got employees and they contribute to the GDP of this country. They contribute to the economy of this country. You have a lot of work to do as a minister. You have a lot of work to clean the Copperbelt. Please leave Mwamoineni engineering alone. Because you don’t know where Mwamona engineering has come from that is why I am saying what is happening in PF is surprising and is a source of concern where you want to fight others.”

Mr Kambwili also said there is too much indiscipline in the party and that small boys have been allowed to insult senior members of the party.

“Mu Chibemba tweba ati ukutengelesha mafina kucilonda because tomorrow they will not be on Chishimba Kambwili, they will be on you!”

Mr. Kambwili also complained that he had made several attempts to meet President Lungu so that he could give his view in the recently upward adjustment on the electricity tariffs but that all the attempts had proved futile.

“All of you know that this news has been received with a lot of anger by the grassroots. People are not happy but you see! I am convinced that people are not going to the President to tell him the truth that people are not happy. Yes, we know that Zesco needs cost reflective tariffs for it to survive but I don’t think doing it at once 50 per cent increase in May and another 25 per cent increase in September is the right way to go. All the other factors have not changed between May and September, salaries of the people are still the same but electricity tariffs go up, 75 percent in one year,” he said.

“For me I would rather go to the President and tell him that your Excellency, I think we should have spread standards to this increment I think on a period of three or four years, you increase by 10 percent this year, another 15 percent that year just like that. And when we want to tell the President, we are not being given access. I have been to the vice president I want to meet the president, there has been no positive response, I have phoned the presidential aide, no response, I have phoned Kaizer Zulu, no response, I have phoned the secretary to the president, no response. Now where do you air out your views like these?”

He further said that he would not respond to Rainbow party leader Wynter Kabimba who was celebrating his firing, but added “I would not want to respond to Wynter Kabimba because people may not notice the difference. There is a saying in English that if you argue with a fool… Kabimba is a political nobody and I wouldn’t want to talk about him.”

Mr Kambwili said Mr Kabimba is the worst politician this country has ever had.

“When I was fired nobody celebrated, when he was fired the whole country celebrated, so he can’t see the distinction. He can’t compare himself to me, the whole country went on the streets celebrating the firing of Kabimba but when I was fired the whole country was quiet like a sea, it shows him something so he should not talk about issues he doesn’t understand,” Mr. Kambwili said.

    • No matter what you are going even if PF was made in your sitting room. I see you forced out of PF shortly. Kabimba cried the same cry “I was one of the first in PF no new comers will kick me out” but he was kicked very well and today he is shouting from outside. And same will happen to you. @ young cobra hahahahahaah

    • Kambwili is very right and I support him.

      Look, PF is not like defunct UPND that has been mercilessly ruled dictatorially by the incarcerated to be convict HH without holding any elcections.

      Look at how headless UPND has become, the cant even be heard on on national issues constructively, they are dead.

      Having said that, leave Kambwili alone, lets direct our energy in making sure HH doesnt come out of prison any time soon.

    • Very well said Ck. Imwe ichi chimuntu paliba skopo, mwichimono kulundumana, mukati emuli amano!! cant agree more Mr Head Boy, Mpatamato Sec School.

      Reply

    • Kambwili is a child! Why can’t he emulate Given Lubinda? Miles Sampa felt the same way in popularity – where is he? Grow up!

    • Just start doing elections every time anyone cries wolf, It’s a failed state anyway. LUNGU MUST CALL FOR ELECTIONS NOW. After all he just store the elections using Kambwili. Kambwili spill the beans, Who won the elections. Tell us the inside story of what the crooks did.

    • I dont really like Kambwili cause he can be sarcastic. I also dont feel any remorse for him for being on the receiving end of PF. However, he has raised some important points. Here is a summary, “President Lungu, please do what you were ‘elected’ for and stop campaigning after 8 months in your presidency”, “said Kambwili”.

    • Savage kingdom in pf. Work first and start scrambling for positions later. If UPND was not for Tongas only, i would have joined them. The problem with UPND again is that all these hungry monkeys and baboons in PF will find refuge in UPND. will take break from partizan politics and call a spade a spade. New shooterz

    • KAMBWILI IS RIGH BEING FIRED FROM GOVERNMENT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN ONE SHOULD QUIT THE POLITICAL PARTY THAT THEY BELONGS TO. KAMBWILI BELONGS TO PF WHETHER IN GOVT OR NOT.

    • “THE Government should seize the offshore accounts into which nearly K400 million Saturnia Regna Pension Trust Funds were illegally transferred to Luxembourg and other European investment havens.
      The money was externalised by the Fund Managers Benefits Consulting Services Limited and African Life Financial Services Limited without the authority of the Minister of Finance as required by law.
      Speaking to the Daily Nation yesterday, one of the Saturnia Regna Pension Fund Trustees revealed that the Board was in complete darkness over the investment.
      Benefits Consulting Services Limited and African Financial Services Limited are owned by Munakupya Hantuba, Hakainde Hichilema and Valentine Chitalu through their holding company Menel Management Services….”

    • Well done @Kambwili !!!
      You have touched many points, the intelligent people will understand.
      The bottom line is that something is wrong within PF. Every day, there is one i.d.i.ot screaming or threatening somebody. Lately, this forum doesn’t debate on anything useful to the common Zambian, but instead all the time people here spend their time reacting to WHAT one Fo.ool from PF said or what Mushota said. REALLY??? It’s really sad. PF is currently full of power hungry people, and they are doing everything possible to squeeze anyone who says anything contrary. These people are here too, you say something, immediately you are labelled ” a UPND”. Some people don’t even read the articles but go on to attack opposition

    • Where is Kaizer Zulu when we need him most? Please squeeze & finish this i.d.i.o.t. NOW IT IS YOU ON THE RUN. Mwale tumpa sana elyo mwali ba Minister. What goes round, comes around. Good Luck…Balekukaka iwe, tawafikeko ku 2021

    • The beginning of the End of PF. Infighting is a sign of delinquency and rottenness.
      The rot in PF started from the head.

    • I’m very happy that Mubita Nalishebo agrees that UPND is undemocratic..Then why wasting time? Let us all rally behind the chosen charismatic and democratic leader..ECL..

    • What is needed is all, all top govt officers and those that held office should be accountable for the wealth they accrued simply by virtue of the offices they held. As a minister you suddenly own 100 trucks, 100 suvs, 50 sport cars, 100 housing units??? What nonsense is that? When you were not a minister you didn’t even own your own house??? So you are only cheating yourself bwana!

    • Kambwili You started well with facts, though at the end of your article, you became Emotional linking your Business to your political career. Learn to separate the two because it seems you are pushing to be in PF just because you want favors for your Business.
      To the critical of the PF government, it is attar childishness to instruct companies to cancel contracts just because someone opposes your beliefs / opinion. Moreover, this is what made UNIP more credible because Kaunda never allowed holders of Public offices to own businesses, as it brings corruption / conflict of interest. Let People in business run business and politicians stay away. You can’t have both or disassociate business deals to your political offices.

  1. Politicians today you are persecuting tomorrow you are persecuted and they never learn but all fall in the same trap every time, it’s so disgusting and detrimental to economic growth for our great nation…

  2. It’s unfortunate that the PF is doing away with founding members. How can you have a party without founding members? It means you’ll just be floating and have no foundation. M C Sata used to call the MMD government a sangwapo Government. True to his word, PF is now turning into a sangwapo Party and government after being adopted by MMD

    • …most of the people who started upnd with Anderson Kambela Mazoka are no longer there. Patrick Chisanga, Given Lubinda, Sakwiba Sikota, Bob Sichinga etc. Isn’t it more to do with Zambian politics rather than PF alone????? Let’s call a spade a spade!!! All political parties in Zambia are sangwapo parties; Even Edgar Chagwa Lungu started his political career in Mazoka’s upnd, not so????

    • the criminal is kampyongo, in short new comers to pf.they never contributed enough to ecl re-election.surely how do you run a country with state house advisors only leaving out senior party members, its wrong .Thi is what ecl said at one of state house events

  3. The truth is Kabwili is more popular in PF and maybe country than Edgar. The downfall of Lungu is orchestrated by RB. PF is following the route MMD used and killed potential leaders until they ended up with the popular RB.

  4. What goes around comes around…this is why you should promote good governance…look at this BUFFOON!!

  5. I feel sorry for Hon Kambwili & his lamentations.The politics of this country are weird.The fact that you founded a political party is the very reason those now in power will want you expelled!!. The Bowman Lusambos’ are “small fish”the powers in Lusaka are the ones who are sending him & want Kambwili expelled from PF.Ba Kambwili talk to Kampyongo & you will understand the mind of presido ECL(2021 no- change,ECL; nafuti,nafuti!!!)

    • Don’t cheat the President it can be like RB nafuti nafuti 2011, because any year which ends with the digit one brings it’s own story,just look at 1991,2001,2011and the 2016?

  6. Metal. Inshimbi kambwili, they will try to squeeze you. They fear you like ten devils. Stay well in coming President

  7. If u “formed PF to b a pro-poor party” how come suddenly after getting into Govt u r rich, building houses, flashing expensive cars? All things u did not ve b4 u got to Govt. B4 u got into Govt u had no Range Rovers, no Ford Rangers. Is that what pro-poor gets u as a person?

  8. Very well said Ck. Imwe ichi chimuntu paliba skopo, mwichimono kulundumana, mukati emuli amano!! cant agree more Mr Head Boy, Mpatamato Sec School.

  9. I didnt know that ECL has been refusing to meet CK.this is why Hon Kampyongo and Bowman Lusambo(mmd die hard) are on CK.however,this is not good.President Edgar Lungu must sit down with CK because he truly loves PF and means well.yes,he may have presidential ambitions,but that is his democratic right.ECL must avoid being sorrounded by “YES BWANA” PF members who shall never tell him the truth from the grassroots.ECL needs people like CK who can tell him the truth.INDEED MANY ZAMBIANS COMPLAINED ABOUT 75% TARIFF INCREAMENT BY ZESCO.THIS IS THE FACT WHICH MAY COST ECL BADLY IN 2021!!
    I just wonder why our politicians do not learn in life!!!ECL IS DOING WHAT RB USED TO DO BEFORE 2011!!PLEASE PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU OPEN YOUR EARS AND EYES NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!!

  10. Kambwili is lying. Sata formed PF without help from anyone. We were at Mulungushi International Conference Center forming the FDD and Sata came to join the meeting but we chased him because of his behavior during the third term charade. The following day he announced the forming of the Patriotic Front. And due to lack of time he was only able to field one candidate for Parliament and this person won that election. People only came on board after Sata had gathered enough momentum. These included among them Guy Scott who was VP for Lima Party. Please just note that among the current membership nobody can claim to be a founder member of PF like the MMD which was an idea mooted by some of our best brains.

  11. If you’re pro-poor why not cut your salary by half like President Lungu? Don’t be very surprised that becoz u’re among the first five founders of PF u’re not occupying the topmost position in PF/gov’t – remember ‘many that are first shall be last and the last shall be first’ Matt 19:30); also the race is not to the swift neither is the battle to the strong … (Eccl 9:11). Promotion comes from God. God bless Zambia!

    • How did Lungu cut his salary? Where is the proof? Moreover the Bum is getting kickacks left right and centre.

  12. If the way we talk is supposedly the way we act, I think mother earth would have been a very good place to live on, but unfortunately we do the complete opposite hence making the earth a hell of a place. Campaigns are the same, full of promises but to develop your constituency never, only to be seen at campaign time again, that’s what is destroying Zambia now, empty promises. Good at talking, the you’ve spoken like you really think. Africa twasebana.

  13. I have no sympathy for KASHIMBA CHIMBWILI. Isn’t this the same animal who went round the country heckling and insulting anybody who was not Bemba or Chipatan. He forgot that his day will come, he is just another dog. In fact I would like His Excellency CE Lungu to squeeze him even more…in fact where is Kaizer Zulu? Please finish this i.d.i.o.t. If this guy was still in power Zambia would be in civil war by now. He is so careless, dangerous, selfish, egotistic, and a master thief. But ba boss Kashimba Chimbwili, ECL is coming after you, and some of us are so relieved and happy that NOW IT IS YOU ON THE RUN. Mwale tumpa sana elyo mwali ba Minister. What goes round, comes around. Good Luck…Balekukaka iwe, tawafikeko ku 2021. Be Excellency ECL was right to fire you, you were a danger to…

  14. Some of you bloggers are a disgrace to human existence.Chishimba Kambwili is hundred per cent here.It makes no sense indorsing pf candidate for 2021 now when the economy is in shackles. Every person in his right state of mind would not entertain such talks.it is a taboo.ECL has not done anything to bring economy back to the track and you start indorsing someone for 2021.CK you are a true son of the soil. I now know that you have mother Zambia at heart. The majority of patriotic Zambians are behind you. Only those that are sick in mind would criticize and mock you. I hate people who think they know when they don’t. We are watching you that are busy destroying this country’s future.

  15. “… those who think that they can drive an agenda of sole candidacy in PF are free to go and join the UPND where he said there are no elections.”

    Uumh, nazo nkhani.

  16. CK IS RIGHT.THE NEW COMERS WILL DEFINATELY KILL PF.HE SATA WAS THE PRESIDENT NOW,HE WAS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT THE INCREAMENT FROM ZESCO.
    BOWMAN LUSAMBO,PF IS NOT MMD.STOP TEMPERING WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S BUSINESS.WE REMEMBER THIS IS WHAT MMD USED TO DO WHEN IT WAS IN POWER.
    MOST OF THE POINTS RAISED BY CK HAS MADE ALOT OF SENSE AND ONLY A FOOL CAN DISAGREE WITH HIM.
    AS FOR PRESIDENT LUNGU,STOP BEHAVING LIKE YOUR god FATHER RB.REMEMBER HOW RB CRIED AFTER 2011 ELECTIONS.THE PEOPLE SURROUNDING YOU ARE JUST CHEATING YOU.
    WHAT SINS THAT KAMBWILI HAS COMMITTED FOR HIM TO TREATED LIKE JUNIOR CADRE IN PF.WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN HOW HE CAMPAIGNED FOR YOU ON THE COPPER BELT AND NOW THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HIM.
    TAKE TIME TO LISTERN TO OTHER PEOPLE THAN BOWMAN LUSAMBO AND FEW NEW MMD MEMBERS.
    CK…

  17. The bombs theives are falling over them selves to lick lungus boots.
    All lungu has to do is promise them a chance to loot and watch them eat each other while lungu , RB and siliya watch.

    • The bemba theives are falling over them selves to lick lungus boots.
      All lungu has to do is promise them a chance to loot and watch them eat each other while lungu , RB and siliya watch.

  18. Sara was president of PF from 2000 to 2015 until his death. He was never elected at the convention. The convention only elected lower ranks. HH has only been president since 2006 and was elected. So I don’t understand Kambwili assertion.

  19. C K DON’T LEAVE PF FOR NEWCOMERS.THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED SO MUCH FOR PF WHEN BOWMAN LUSAMBO WAS IN MMD ENJOYING HIMSELF.THESE ARE THE PEOPLE BEMBAS CALL BA KATYE MWENDA MWALIMWA.ALL THESE NEW COMERS CAN THEY POINT AT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IN PF?
    IT IS NOT A SIN TO HAVE PRESIDENTIAL AMBITIONS.CK MUST NOT BE DEMONIZED.IT IS SAD FOR LUNGU TO SIDE LINE KAMBWILI IN THESE WAY,EVEN GOING TO THE POINT OF REFUSING TO MEET HIM.BECAREFUL,SOME PEOPLE SURROUNDING DO NOT MEET WELL.YOU WILL REALIZE WHEN IT IS TOO LATE.

  20. To be the one of the first one or rather one of the five to form PF is no guarantee to be untouchable. A wrong is a wrong. The best CK MUST have done is to keep is calm like did Given Lubinda, he could have then gained a lot of respect and peoples confidence. Now the way he is behaving is like challenging anyone who talks about his being out of Government. He should have left it to people to judge him. Look at the MAST they are really excited about whatever he says, for them he is always right, ba CK should have avoided all this publicity. Now its like he likes it when the so called MAST newspaper puts him as a head line. I was a close follower of CK, but now i have a lot of doubt about him….CK chill mudala. UMWANA KASEMBE, NANGU KAKUKOMA KUKATOLA WAYA NAKO KUNGANDA. ICHILONDA CHILAPOLA…

  21. Dog eat dog!.After they are done persecuting everybody else who is outside their inner circle, they will turn against each other.

    CK is today singing an ‘angel’ good song because he’s been hounded out of the PF inner circle. He didn’t see all these wrongs when he was part of the gang looting public resources.

    That’s Zambian politicians for you. No morals, no principles, no integrity, zero, none. Welcome to the other side mate, the commoners side.

  22. Comment:
    @ndanje khakis
    You are absolutely right. Kambwili is a big liar. He was nowhere when ba Sata created PF.

  23. I like Dr Kambwili. He always surprises me. I think he has a character. But that’s my opinion not yours.

  24. and by the way when we debate lets not insult each other. Lets discuss matters not personalities. unless we have nothing to talk about

  25. Ifi fikabwala twanka nafyo. EL you are listening soon it will be you. My friend you very soon run away from this country. Zambia is not a personal to holder thing, it is for Zambians and soon you shall see. Mwanawasa once said Zambians forget easily, we have now changed and able to remember every detail watch it!!!!

  26. Well spoken CK. When you were minister, I did not like the way you handled many issues like constant attacks on the Tonga’s, post newspapers persecution leading to closure and just the way you boasted against others. Your post now contains a lot of substance and I can’t resist but admit. They are persecuting you now the way you persecuted the post. Remain focused as this is what will determine your success. Change for the better.

  27. That’s hardly a reason to stay. Even companies do go through hostile takeovers where the founding directors misbehave!

  28. @Jay Jay you are the only one who does not know that ECL’s only gets 50% salary and even another percentage goes to marketers. You can ask anyone or Mutati (Finance Minister). Mr. Kabwili being a founder member does not mean that you should be indiscipline to the party and no body should control you. why don’t you work with the others instead of being against? You alone does not want new comers how is the party going to grow? Do something work on that the party needs new comers to progress. Even if yo form your own party you will need people from other parties, so pls. welcome every one for the betterment of the party.

  29. Kabwili has responded to a stimulus because he can feel the heat now.CK about the Jerabos dont lie.You know them IE Chile1,Real Masters,Shimpuundupakoloko.Akapondo part2 to mention a few.Yes your business has been there from 1993 if not on paper only then after you went into power it absorbed hundreds of contracts.Though am not supporting ELC for letting Bow & arrow Man to hover around the country trying to suffocate your business and he nearly manhandled the late Sata in Ndola and today they are reaping the benefits.As one of the first 2001 supporters of PF when we had only one MP from Mufurila i understand your pain but be truthful when holding a press-conference.I never in my life subscribed to a sole candidate.That’s the food for thought for cowards.

  30. It is global CK! Even in Malawi, Zimbabwe, Uganda etc firing , hiring, wamuyaya, oppression, closing of media, treason arising from traffic offence and many more are happening so do not worry. It is GLOBAL>

  31. Why not join in working for the people instead of claiming rights to a party because you founded it? Why destroy and handicap your vehicle?

  32. Who were the five founders?
    1 Michael Sata
    2 Dr Guy Scott
    3 Wynter Kabimba
    4 Chishimba Kambwili
    5 ??????

  33. IT IS NOT THE FOUNDING THAT MATTERS. IT IS WHAT YOU HAVE BECOME NOW. HAVING FOUNDED THE PARTY, YOU HAVE VEERED INTO BECOMING THE MOST VIOLENT, STUBBORN NUT DISTURBING THE PEACE EVERYWHERE. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HOLD THE PF AT RANSOM SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU WERE AMONG THE FOUNDERS OF THE PARTY. YOU HAVE FALLEN FROM GRACE AND LOST YOUR FORMER GLORY AND VISION.SO SHUT UP. NEXT STORY PLEASE.

  34. He has made his position in PF untenable. Even Steve Jobs was once fired from Apple Inc, a company he co-founded. Pf should move very quickly to expel him from the party. If they do not, then they are all spineless wanker$, afraid that CK will scream in the street about their corrupt activities.

  35. The problem with Kambwili is that he does not understand that when you form a political party, even if you form it in your bedroom with your wife or girlfriend the moment you register it as a public entity it becomes a public entity period. So the point that you were one of the five people that started they party does not mean anything, because the ownership comprises all the members and the electorate. People kill their own children or wives or girlfriends. So there is nothing that can prevent you from killing the PF if you have the means to. Secondly, you suggestion on electricity tariffs increase, you have your opinion. But that does not mean that your opinion MUST be taken NO. Think twice. No body will hound you out of the party except yourself.

  36. @annoymus:who is talking about HH here?moreover,who can fear HH who has lost 5 times since 2006?HH is only popular kubu tonga,kubu lozi and kuli baka Luvale full stop!!upnd was formed in 1998.in 2021 upnd will be 23 yrs old minus winning a single seat in Eastern,Luapula,Muchinga,Northern,CB and Lsk urbans but some bantustans still think that HH is popular,how and where?YES HH IS POPULAR IN DUNDUMWEDZI!!!
    AS FOR CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI,DONT WORRY CK,ALL WILL BE FINE FOR YOU IN PF.JUST TRY TO KEEP QUIET FOR A WHILE.
    Bowman Lusambo and Kampyongo must tone down too.i like Davis Mwila as he doesnt talk anyhow.true leaders are there to unite members and not what Kampyongo and Bowman Lusambo(a known mmd member) do!!

  37. Let’s learn to dialogue. The idea of attacking one another on social media or in the press is totally wrong. we need to find a way of ensuring the affairs of the country are managed in a mature manner as people who are in government

  38. PF under the current leadership must be very careful as they are playing in the hands of UPND and this will prove to be disastrous. Reading the current constitution I do not think ECL quilify to stand as President in 2021 yet people like Kampyongo and Mwila are endorsing his candidacy, what is there basis? I foresee a situation we’re the current Constitution will be amended to allow ECL to stand. But in my view that will be a big political miss calculation as PF will be divided and split into factions. This is when CK will be the ice breaker and handover power to UPND. I can assure you CK will form his party and eat in PF support base in Lusaka, CB,Luapula, Northern, Muchinga and parts of central amoung the Bemba speaking support as this regional voting is very real in Zambia while…

    STATE HOUSE UNDERMING THE JUDICIARY

    As MMD youths, we are shocked and concerned at the manner in which the Executive arm of Government is commenting on matters before the court of law.

    The revelations by Dr Nevers Mumba that President Michael Sata phoned him and threatened him with a jail sentence should not be dismissed.

    Dr Mumba’s disclosure casts a big shadow on the separation of powers as espoused by our democratic aspirations. It is evident to see that President Sata will stop at nothing to see his political rivals suffer.

    We are in support of Dr Mumba’s statement and further challenge State House to clear the air because the revelations are damaging to the integrity of the relationship between State and the Judiciary.

    We appeal to State…

  40. From most comments on Ck l find them repulsive and show deep degree of a fourth world. U cant see that MMD is up to erase PF ‘s existence and want to come back to power through the likes of mmd die hard Lusambo? Cant u see the bond btween ECL and RB? Cant u see that b4 the campain period was announced lusambo and other mmd candidates were already campagning? U hav eyes but cant see U hav ears but cant hear. CK dont listen to these boot leakets. How can a president of an opposition party be your seniour cabinet minister? Shame!

  41. Comment:chishimba when you were a minister you never knew that people were suffering now you are taking about the hike of electricity. Why can’t you say IT IS GLOBAL!
