His royal Highness, Mwine Lubemba, the Paramount chief Chitimukulu says he had opted to deny Roan constituency member of parliament Chishimba Kambwili an invitation to this year’s ukusefya pangw’ena in order to preserve the integrity of the traditional ceremony.

Speaking through the Bemba Royal Establishment spokesperson during an exclusive interview from the Pangw’ena palace earlier today, the mwine lubemba stated that he had officially communicated his position not to welcome Mr Kambwili to the ukusefya pangw’ena traditional ceremony to both the Northern Province Police Commissioner Richard Mweene and the provincial administration.

“We were not ready to subject our guests especially the traditional leaders from the South to his political gimmicks, frustrations, hate speech or propaganda,” said the royal establishment spokesperson.

“We communicated this position to both the police commissioner and Northern provincial administration,” stressed ba mwine Lubemba.

“There is no room for tribal talk during ukusefya pangw’ena. There is no room for division, propaganda, sheer political gimmicks or hate speech. We are privileged to receive about 20 guests who are traditional leaders from across the nation and we would like them to enjoy and appreciate ukusefya pangw’ena for the uniting ceremony it is and devoid of any hidden political agenda,” he added.

In response, Northern province Police Commissioner Richard Mweene called on Roan members of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and his entourage to abide by the decision of his royal Highness, Paramount chief Chitimukulu.

This year’s ukusefya pangw’ena graced by His Excellency, President Edgar Chagwa Lungu attracted different business houses on the sides of the arena, thousands of people and about 20 visiting traditional leaders including senior chief Chikanta, senior chief mweemba, chief cooma, chief simwatachela, Chiefteness choongo, chief mapanza, chief mukobela, senior chief Sinazongwe, chief Mwenda from Southern province.

Chief mumena from kalumbila, chief kalunga from kabompo, chief chiyengela from Limulunga, chief chitoshi from Lunte, chief kaputa and chief Mporokoso among others were also in attendance.

      Salutation to Mwine Lubemba, the Paramount chief Chitimukulu and the Royal leadership! Our young brother Kambwili needs to mature, sober up and find peace within himself. He has been too erratic, eccentric and deluded with his mindless antics without learning from history. There is no better time and decision to make than taking a sabbatical leave of absence from public life altogether. He is better off going on a retreat in his village down in Mporokoso for for the next 4 years. No serious party would take CK for an asset other than excess luggage. What wisdom, desirable character or intellectual acumen CK brings other than hatred, arrogance, inducements and tribalism? he is not the heartbeat of the bemba society but a loose cannon who has lost it.

      I thought mwinelubemba was as wise as the articles he writes. This statement is very political and contradictory. Reading between the lines one can easily see the hand of politics. Well the same Tonga chief he was entertaining welcomed Kambwili. Kambwili has no capacity to cause any trouble. He should have banned the PF brutal militia from attending because they are the trouble makers. I don’t fancy Kambwili but like any Zambian he has the right to attend any ceremony in Zambia. Mwinelubemba has made a political decision to deny his son his rights. These brown envelopes are distroying the country. Am beginning to love the Tonga chiefs for their wisdom on political issues. Maybe Sata had his reasons for opposing him afterall.

      It was a wise move by the Chitimukulu to stop Kambwili especially that he would have ended up meeting with the people he has fallen out with. It is better to stop other and avoid the repetition of similar incidences at the mighty Kuomboka. Kambwili must take a break from public life and reflect on his actions and life.

      Mwine Lubemba never is impessive in his actions other than the articles he writes. He can do better as an academician. Bashikulu, the late, new when he wanted to dispose him. He has nothing to offer so far and ” you shall know them by their deeds”.

      @1.3 The Tonga Chiefs welcomed Kambwili because of their hatred for the President HE ECL. It has nothing to do with forgiving Kambwili’s stupidity.

      Zambian Politics, these chiefs are also weak. This is why they are insulted by politicians. A traditional ceremony should have no invitation. It’s like a funeral??? according to our Zambian culture and Values, anyone can attend. This seems to have been forced on the chief by the President’s office. It’s really a shame. As much as I don’t like Kambwili, I think the Royal Establishment failed.

    Exactly what I said, that the incoming second vice president of ********** was not welcome by the bemba traditional leadership in order to protect their guests from embarrassment or to spoil the ceremony.
    ********** both present and incoming should just be banished from this country.

    Ba Kambwili, your political assessment is worse than that of Miles Sampa and Silvia Masebo.
    Fact is, you are just an.principled loud mouthed chimp who must be grateful to the PF party. It only takes one to go into achieves to remind them of who you are. Infact the chaps in UPND are showing you dry bonesawu (teeth) and you think you are any better than kabondo (GBM) whom all the UPND MPs have failed to accept but only use him for expediency. Try and for seat amongst them in TongaLand and let’s see if you will be adopted.
    Bembas aren’t cheap but too clever for chaps like u.

    Was it a political function or a tribal function of the bembas? I totally disagree with the chief bcoz he failed in his responsibility. A traditional leader just like any other leader is for both those he likes and those he doesn’t. The best is let there be no political leader attending the ceremony in there capacity as leaders but as citizens and members of the tribe celebrating a ceremony. Traditional leaders should be above politics and that’s FTJ introduced

      Please read very carefully. It’s clearly stated that because of Kambwili’s tribally divisive politics, it was not prudent to have him around the ceremony which was attended by 9 chiefs from Southern and NW provinces. Don’t you now doubt his mental stability that when he was advised not to come he insisted on coming.

How was kambwili going to cause mayhem? Think cadres think. If u go back not long ago, z pf and a certain minister made life hell. Z upnd said if they formed govt sosala will be chitimukulu. GBM resigned in support of one sosala. Today z pf is and its leader is a darling to chitimukulu and this is wisdom?

    When he was speaking against the Tongas Chitimukulu didn’t see anything wrong with him and he was busy gracing the ceremony. Had he become tribal by apologizing to the Tongas…..I can’t agree with Chitimukulu’s decision because he is the same Kambwili he accommodated in the past except that today he is not in good boots with pf. I believe going to the traditional ceremony is no different with going to church or funeral. These are uniting events where politics should be put aside….period!

    Mwine lubemba is hardcore PF supporter it is a know fact and Lungu has bought him three vehicles. When mwine lubemba failed to speak out about HH detention, we heard his grandson GBM denounced the Royal establishment.
    I’m decent Bemba and my heritage is the Royal lineage. There is no such a thing as inviting Bembas as they are by virture of their Bemba heritage are naturally invited. You only invite people who are not part of the family and this is why others like Lungu, chiefs from other parts of Zambia are invited.
    Surely Mr SOSALA is not representing what Kanyanta Manga Bwalya chisupa ichatwala chimo stood for. He was a paramount chief of the people. He never acquired wealth from the colonial masters but defended his subjects. No wonder his subjects used to sing ‘ tuyemonaaa,…

    Compromised and politicised chiefs. There is no consistency nor principle. A chief has no ownership of traditions that have existed from yester years. Never a time such as the last 6 years, have chiefs been so entangled in partisan politics. For me, every traditional ceremony is an expression of a people’s heritage – everyone should be able to attend in their personal capacities. Where has this system of a ‘guest list’ come from? Why should political differences determine attendance to a traditional commemoration?

    Is Chishimba Kambwili not part of the royal family? From the Chief Mumpolokoso line? The Chitimukulu is trodding on very slippery grounds At this rate he will become a big embarrassment very soon. Look through the Patriotic Front.See what is happening.That’s why us Bemba’s are fools. Always pulling ourselves down. Do you think the Litunga can refuse his subject from attending the Kuomboka? What of the Tonga people and there ceremonies? Tell me of one subject who has been barred from a ceremony. Not even Mushala was an outlaw in NWP.
    You did the same to Simon M Kapwepwe. You are doing it again. No wonder MCS did not want you to become Mwiine Lubemba. What a useless tribe to belong to.

    I agree with those of the opinion that the Bashilubemba have ered at the same time would Like to state that l dont agree that our President was behind it.
    This is a traditional ceremony that does not require invitations. In my opinion CK should have been allowed to attend on condition that he was going to be confined to the ordinary crowd he belongs for the purpose of upholding security and respect which the presidency, invited Chiefs and other Vips deserve.This action should not have allowed any unfortunate experiences as those that occurred in WP. Especially that our security wings are now more than equal to the task.
    In conclusion lets allow these non political traditional ceremonies to act as a platform for a continuous unification process.

    Some people are arguing that Chishimba Kambwili qualified to be at the Kusefya Kwangwéna ceremony by virtue of being a Bemba subject and thus didn’t even need to be invited or to be barred by Mwine Lubemba. Are people with this line of reasoning not aware of situations even within our own families where we don’t invite some of our family members to weddings because we know them to be problem drunkards with the potential of disrupting the whole happy occasion?

    One observation: Much as we have gaps in political field, am trying to understand whether mere coincidence or intentional. When Nch’ala was held in Eastern, Paramount chief Mwata Kazembe attended but no re-nouned chief from Bemba kingdom. During Umutomboko ceremony in Luapula, same thing, Paramount chief Mpezeni attended.
    Somebody help clear my thoughts. Am thinking the easterners have a good relationship with Luapula province duelers than they have with northern and Muchinga province duelers. We really need to observe clearly and raise serious concerns if true. Sometimes when our traditional leaders are against each other, they may cause the whole ethnic grouping to write off long standing relationships.
