Kambwili’s apology is merely for political expediency-Mwenda

The PF leadership in Southern Province has said that former Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Chishimba Kambwili’s apology to the Tongas should not be taken seriously.

PF Southern Province Information and Publicity vice Secretary Trymore Mwenda said that Mr Kambwili’s apology is merely for political expediency.

Mr Mwenda wondered what had motivated Mr Kambwili’s change of heart for Tonga’s who he politically maligned through his frequent scathing media statements when he served in government.

Mr Mwenda challenged Mr Kambwili to explain in detail the nature of evil spirits that possessed him when he maligned Tongas over their perceived voting pattern.

Mr Mwenda was reacting to Mr Kambwili’s remarks that evil spirits forced him to malign the Tongas when he was Minister.

Mr Mwenda said that Mr Kambwili is merely seeking political sympathy after being expelled from the PF.

Mr Mwenda warned that Mr Kambwili’s attempts to vilify President Edgar Lungu and the PF will work against him.

Mr Kambwili is reported to have told Chief Monze that evil spirits controlled him when he issued insulting remarks against Tongas.

He said this when he rendered an apology at the Chief’s palace.

And PF provincial secretary Moses Ngosa has warned Roan member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili against spreading falsehoods that President Lungu hates people of that province.

The party has also described Mr Kambwili’s recent visit to the province to apologise for the tribal remarks he made against them as “cosmetic kicks of a dying horse”.

Mr Ngosa said in a statement on Wednesday that it is unusual for Mr Kambwili to suggest that President Lungu has no heart for people in the province when the unprecedented number of projects initiated by him in the province are there for all to see.

“We find that behaviour very unusual and not befitting Hon Kambwili’s calibre. President Lungu has wholeheartedly proved to Southern Province that it is at his heart by the number of projects Government has embarked on in the past and present,” he said.

Mr Ngosa said Mr Kambwili should also remember that President Lungu was recently in the province to inspect a number of projects which included the commissioning of road works in Itezhi Tezhi and Dundumwezi.

Mr Ngosa said President Lungu has also promised to visit Namuswa ward in Choma where the PF has a councillor and wonders if the gesture is a symbol of hate.

“Honourable Kambwili should therefore be truthful and stop deceiving the people here by trying to paint the President black. We also want to remind him that President Lungu never became President by telling lies but by telling people the truth. He can’t fool the people with his fake apology because even a small child knows that his apology over his tribal remarks was cosmetic,” he said.

Mr Ngosa urged people in the province to ignore Mr Kambwili’s claims as President Lungu is committed to developing the province.

“The desperation and hunger for presidency from Honourable Kambwili is a danger to democracy and we offer him this free advice to tone down. Let Mr Kambwili concentrate on building his dented image in Southern Province intsead of painting President Lungu black,” he said.

      Kambwili should not think that Zambians are fools, who cannot think and make Good & Sound Analytical Judgements. They can see a Hyena, Snake, Spider and Mosquito… !!!

      This is a case where a bunch of frustrated and disgruntled chaps are teaming together. We have had this before. HH had the following people joining people him to defeat Lungu.

      Former Vice President – Lukando Mwape
      Bob Sichinga,
      Felix Mutati,
      Godfrey Bwalya ( GBM)
      Silva Masebo,
      Maureen Mwanawasa,
      Mulenga Sata
      Nevers Mumba
      And the list goes…

      Most people thought that the above list was a powerful-team to defeat Lungu. But it failed.
      Just as well the above lists were just Job Seekers or those looking for Government Contract to enrich themselves.

      Put it simply, Kambwili is not adding anything to UPND…

      Thank you, Moshota!
      “Who is genuine in politics ? Thy all tell Porkies”, you wrote.
      Now, tell us please: Is Lungu a politician or not?

      Looking forward to be enlightened by a wise and observant reader!

      PF and their demons!!! There is a possession that takes place when someone is in PF, when they leave the party or are cast out it.ia like an exorcism just takes place and their eyes open. Then those who remain start hating the one who left. Surely light and darkness cannot move together. The demons in PF have blinded many with hate and anger over everyone not in their legion. COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, BABYLON THE GREAT HAS FALLEN, THE DEN OF EVIL.

    At least he is bold to come out in public and say sorry. It’s not easy. Personally I respect irrespective of what people think or say. There are many politicians n people who have never said sorry even in private. Take it or leave I SALUTE DR CK

    Atleast He Has Done His Part. He Has Confesed And Said Sorry. So Ba Mwenda And Ngosa Your Poisoning To Kambwili’s Statement Is Just For Your Cheap Politics As Well. The Projects You Are Talking About Were Started By Sata And Some By Mwanawasa And Not Yo god Lungu.
    Am A Tonga, Whether You Like It Or Not, I’ve Accepted His Appology. Did You Want Him To Appologise To You Or Wat?
    And The Two Of You Are Just In Panic Because Kambwili Is Now Exposing Yo Darkness In Pf To Light For Everyone To See.

      My thoughts exactly! Why are some people unhappy that someone has been forgiven and true Tonga people have moved on? Those of us who have lived with Tongas have leant two thirds of these people are very good people and it’s a small minority that tend to tarnish the good image of our brothers and sisters. Mwenda belongs to this minority, a sell out who will do anything to talk trash. Hard luck my friend. CK is a good man who is humble enough to say sorry. CK is better than ECL. ECL can never say sorry!

      People are not saying that kambwili shouldn’t have apologised but are marely stating the fact that his apology should not have brought in the picture of ecl. Why saying ecl hates you and I love you that’s why am apologising. That’s fake apology. Only tongas can be smeared with butter over this apology.

    Apology accepted but he and the rest of the politicians must refrain from using tribalism to gain points. Zambians are not stupid, they can read between the lines whet leaders are lying.

    Kambwili just showed people that he has no principles. As public officer sworn to serve the people of Zambia he couldn’t afford to be biased. But he openly confessed he hated Tongas. Now his political fortunes have dwindled he remembers his deliberate sins. Whoever thinks his apology is genuine is very stup!d. His apology was ill timed. May be a three year old child would accept his reasons for insulting a whole nation of people. If he said he was utterly STUP!D, to have uttered such hateful words, that could be construed as truth and accepted, and perhaps forgiven. But Evil spirits!! He is only kidding himself and other misguided people. We all know as minister he was playing to PF gallery and had to be seen to be against HH. When are you Zambians going to learn to elect principled…

    Mr CK must know that the most Merciful Lord still punished Adam and Eve for obeying the devil in the Garden of Eden.

    A truly repentant person does not blame others – not even evil spirits, as part of their personal apology.

    Since confessing he was possessed by evil spirits, has he now been exorcised of them, and by whom?

    I was equally wondering, when seeking for mercy one should not play a blame game.
    It is good to ask for forgiveness but with the right motive.

      When he comes to terms like sampa did after discovering how deep rooted upnd is in terms of tribalism he will find another excuse to tell so that pf accepts him back. We will give him 5 years probation before being engaged in party activities.

    For UPND the most pertinent issue is the fact that he and ECL are at loggerheads so the fact that he has insulted Tongas on several occassions and is linked to corruption and criminality is irrelevant.

    Ba Mwenda, when CK made those remarks he was part and parcel of PF, in other words, he was speaking for the PF! Now he is speaking for himself… Capwa! If he did not speak on behalf of PF, why did the rest of you keep quiet?

    What did Kambwili say that he needed to apologise for so he could win elections there next time? If he can visit the words he had said he may learn from it that maybe it was not the evil spirits that had told him to say what he had said.

    I hope this is fake news! Evil spirits….made him do it! Please. Be dignified and stand by what you did in office. Kambwili should not present himself as a buffoon just because he wants to find a new strong foothold. It must be hard to reinvent himself in Politics right now.

    The best example he can follow is that of the Rainbow Party Leader, who left PF, disgraced. He laid low for many months, keeping us guessing and creating a buzz on his whereabouts and status of his career. That gave him a chance to ‘metamorphise’ into a new butterfly. He came back with his own newly created Party. Respect. Take a break comrade.

    When ECL announced that Mulungushi textile mills would reopen creating employment in kabwe wasnt that political expediency.
