Blocked: Roan PF Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and former Copperbelt Province Minister Mwenya Musenga

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu Kanyanta Manga ll has said that he was shocked to hear that Chishimba Kambwili wanted to attend Ukusefya pa Ngwena traditional ceremony after he was dissimised from Government.

The Paramount Chief said that Dr.Kambwili has NEVER attended the Bemba Traditional Ceremony since he was born and despite him being one of the prominent Bembas.

The Paramount Chief added that Dr.Kambwili has never even contributed anything towards the preparations of the Ceremony even when the Ceremony Committees based on the copperbelt and Lusaka respectfully, write to him.

The Mwinelubemba said he got surprised to hear that Dr.Kambwili wanted to attend the ceremony without being invited by the Organizing Committee.

The Paramount Chief suspected that if he had been allowed him to attend, there could have been confusion as was the case in Mongu and Chongwe when those two places witnessed? confusions when they had their traditional ceremonies.

The Paramount Chief said that he even saved Dr .Chishimba Kambwili’s life because PF cadres were ready to chase him.

The Paramount Chief said this during his qree2radio program debut ,Ifikala Chimbwi Tefikala Inama ikata,on a live Radio Mano in Kasama.

  1. Atleast its not a passport to heaven. Who cares about traditions? Just say you need money from Lungu.

    • It’s the celebration of the Bemba people l don’t see the reason why one need to be invited. As long as you’re a Bemba you must attend. Separate politics from traditions. Even other tribes like our Tonga friends must be allowed to attend without the invitation. Let those who contribute sit in the VIP if you want but those who don’t must be allowed to attend because this tradition ceremony belongs to everyone.

    • The chitimukulu has been praised for some well thought, balanced and researched articles. This gave the impression that he was not only above politics but also quite objective.
      However his banning of Kambwili raises serious doubts about his impartiality his alligence and the interference of PF in what should be a ceremony for all people.
      If this kind of thinking goes unabated we risk a situation were traditional ceremonies are reduced to political cheer leading and traditional leaders being irrelevant in championing people’s values!
      The remarks attributed to the chitimukulu that kambwili has never attended ukusefya in his life are shocking to say the least!

    • I have great respect for Chiti Mukulu, even his personal contributions on this LT forum have been well researched, educative and inspiring. In fact, he can be a good President if he would be interested.
      What really bothers me, is the statement that “PF cadres were ready to chase him.” meaning chasing CK.
      Honestly, are we now allowing PF Cadres to determine who goes to which traditional ceremonies? Why did the Chiti Mukulu let this happen, I think on this point, he succumbed to Politics, which is not a good sign. He should have been defiant to PF cadres just as he was with CK

    • This Chief Kanyanta likes money! He is denouncing his subject, Kambwili, just because he wants money from Lungu – what a shame! Kanyanta is the man and chief who received harassments, taunts and mockery from the Police sent by Lungu when he was Minister of Home Affairs!
      This is the same Chief that was trying to justify Lungu’s illegitimate hold on power by blaming HH’s lawyers – literally turning a blind eye to reality so that he can receive favours from Lungu!
      I now agree – Sata had wisdom by not recognising this GREEDY and CORRUPT Kanyanta. He is a chief but his ending will be shameful – a chief that has already sold his self-respect and his people for his personal gain in money!

    • I seriously doubt the credibility of this report.
      I do not for once believe that the Chitimukulu would sink so low to appease the PF minions by refusing CK ftom attending the traditional ceremony. This is just PF spin to save their face.

      I do not think all those who attend these traditional ceremonies get formal invitation.

      I have always said ; lies has short legs and always gets beaten by the truth in every moral race.

      The chimukulu as a man I repect and one if the few chiefs who do not suck upto the PF regines will soon release the truth of what transpired.

      For now lets keep our eyes open.

  2. Lay the hay when the sun shines. These politicians only want other people when they need something of their(politicians) benefit and it’s good that we are slowly identifying them. Thumbs up Paramount Chief and let all chiefs learn to be non partisan so that these crooked politicians learn lessons.

    • Isn’t there a Bemba saying ” tondolo musuma”? I urge this chief, whose subjects are forever praising, to know when to shut up. I know talkativeness is a bemba trait,but bane, sometimes silence is more respectful. Or do l smell a pf carder in the palace? Smh

    • @Cousin:
      Be sensible. Can’t you see that Kanyanta is doing a revenge act here which is bad for a Chief or thief! You see Kambwili was very vocal and critical of GBM when he resigned from Sata’s Govt for visiting Kanyanta, a known enemy of Sata at the time. Now Kanyanta has not forgotten all that and that is why he turning the screws on Kambwili by publicly siding with Lungu.

    • Attendance is discretionary. Bembas are not compelled to attend. Moreover, does the Chitimukulu have to shake the hand of every attendee? How does he know that Chimbwili has never attended? The Chief is being too clever by half and showing his PF hand.

  5. So this Tribal chief called Chitimukulu Kanyanta Manga ll has been attending the traditional ceremony since he was born. Can he remember attending the ceremony as an infant? Did he invite all the villagers who were in attendance? Shallow from this tribal chief!

  7. What point is the Mwinelubemba trying to make here? I think the Chief’s position on this issue is misplaced. He needs to remain objective and factual, as we have always known him. Wether or not Kambwili hasn’t attended the ceremony since he was born, is totally irrelevant. There’s always the first time.

    • @ 8 JayJay

      The subject matter you are alluding to is too big to be appended here. It can neither be a footnote nor an end note. It deserves a treatment, wholly its own. This, however, is not to say it is irrelevant. On the contrary, it is too poignant a subject, it cannot be treated as a comma in a sentence.

    • I think iit time we did away with these Paramount Chiefs in this country. Look at what happened in W/Province, HH was incerated under the Litunga’s watchful eye, but what did our Paramount Chief do, kept quet just so that he keeps getting brown envelopes from Lungu at the expense of an ordinary/voiceless citizen in the name of HH. Here we are again, with our own Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, instead of protecting an ordinary/voiceless citizen in the name of Kambwili, he decides to denounce him all because of a brown envelope from Chakolwa. What a sovereign country

  9. I hope our fearless chief was just not scared of offending the budding dictator in Lusaka. The reason advanced for disallowing Kambwili isn’t valid. It’s unlike uLubemba to be as vindictive as the imitation president in state house. Umwana kasembe. The occassion would have allowed bashi Lubemba the opportunity to impart wisdom into Kambwili’s bongo bongo. Now it looks like uLubemba has been incensed by Kambwili’s tightfistedness.

    • The problem is that Kanyanta thinks he an intellectual with alot of wisdom. But the truth is the opposite – he talks and writes more than any other Chief. This might be good sometimes but it is a double edged sword because this has also exposed his terrible weakness for inconsistencies especially where he sees a personal material gain or money for himself!
      Kanyanta has become more of a PF praise singer especially after Kevin Sampa bought him a brand new car. This is a Chief or thief who has forgotten all the sacrifices of his own grand child GBM. Sata who was his enemy is gone but even in the Chief’s advanced age I know that there is a price he will pay for his uncontrolled appetite for money and material things in his life.

    • And your point is? Any Zambian is free to go to churches, traditional ceremonies, bars, markets and ask people to vote for them. There is nothing wrong with that. The chief has shown that he is on Mr. Lungu’s and PF’s side. A new government should discipline him for denying the rights of others to assemble with, and speak to, whomever they choose!

    Politicians don’t like to face unpleasant realities. In truth, nobody does, but as individuals, we have no choice; if we neglect to plan ahead, we are held accountable. Fail to meet your responsibilities at work, and you get fired. Ignore your car’s gas gauge, and you get stranded.

  12. Enough from this useless Chief. Your useless ceremony is behind us. Leave CK alone. I just have these questions for you.Why has a Bemba not been a president in Zambia? FJT was from Luapula Musangu Village. Reason in Luapula people are united. Whether Ushi, Ngumbo, Lunda, Chishinga, Unga they are one and don’t discriminate. Sata was Bisa and he became president. But the useless Chitimukulus are full of envy and enjoy pulling their subjects down.Always causing divisions. They would rather be ruled by a son of a migrant pastor from Nyasaland , than their own son. I won’t ever attend your useless ceremony until you change your behaviour.Likumbi LyaMize, and Umutomboko are better ceremonies than yours.

  14. These useless Chitimukulus never cease to amaze me.One useless Chitimukulu accepted being a member of UNIP Central Committee while Kapwepwe was being stoned by Unip thugs in Mufulira to the point of death.Abandoned and dejected Kapwepwe under went unspeakable suffering and died a lonely death in Kalulushi while the Chitimukulu was busy receiving brown envelopes and kneeling for Kaunda, and changing the narratiive about their own son to suit his pay masters. Now history is repeating it self. We know these useless Chitimukulu Chiefs and can undress them squarely.

  15. Its hard to extract truth from a Bemba and this vilifies facts that Bembas label others as tribal when THEY do it openly through ‘mapinda’. Can they be trusted?. Since when did attending traditional ceremonies needed invitation especially if one is part of that tradition?. Our traditional rulers need to bear an independent mind embracing all Zambians. However, most of them have traded their respect with coins that never last, soon begging to another president in power. Chishimba Kambwili’s failure to contribute to the tradition ceremony’s preparation does not make him less Bemba. Be truthful to your selves as a people.

    • Spot on, Oval. I think the Chitimukulu was wise by preventing another political fiasco before it happened. He smelt it by what he is explaining above and prevented it. To a large extent, the Litunga could have analysed the emotions on the ground in Mongu, perhaps, and taken certain measures to neutralise what happened. To me, real leaders read situations and provide workable solutions that are in the interest of the collective, much like the Chitimukulu; Did the Litunga do enough???

  18. Many bemba politicians such as CK,Mwenya Musenge,etc who try to destroy PF will be opposed by millions in bembaland.as soon as one falls out of PF,he becomes unwanted in bembaland.today Kambwili would get a some reaction from any chief or anybody in the North as millions there love Michael Sata’s PF very much!!!CK should ask Miles Sampa and GBM who tough it is to kill PF especially in bembaland.those 2 (GMB& Miles Sampa) tried in 2015 and 2016 on behalf of HH but failed terribly as PF won massively in the North!!!
    Kambwili shall face more hell before 2021 and this is when he will know how tough it is for an opposition party to win elections in Zambia!!WELL SAID MWINELUBEMBA!!

  19. Ba Chitimukulu simply talks too much.It is not good for a chief to entangle himself in politics to the extent of going live on radio.Let him emulate the Litunga and keep away from open politics.He may live to regret his endescretion in future.It is not hard to discern why he is behaving in such a careless manner.We all saw the gifts he received at the Ceremony.He should always find ways of accomodating all who want to attend the Ceremony and should never discriminate.A chief must never take political sides. After all there is always a first time for everything,yes even for CK.

  21. Paramount Chief, are you saying that a Bemba need an invitation card to attend a Bemba ceremony? The issue of invitation cards and whether or not someone has attended or contributed to that ceremony is not valid. I understood when you said because Kambwili being a politician, the event could have been politicized. But those other reasons make your Royal Highness sound like you where influenced by the powers that be. To many Bembas in diaspora (outside LuBemba land), Ukusefya pa ng’wena is more of a pilgrimage which we hope to attend at least once in our lifetime. When we do don’t chase us away on grounds that we are attending nor contributing for the first time. As long as we are Bemba, we are your children accept and be proud of us.

  22. Lets us not deliberately misunderstand the Paramount Chief, the reality he’s brought forth here is the need for sincerity especially for people aspiring for political leadership. Coz here is a person who considered himself too Bemba to an extent of being seen tribalist by his Southern colleagues. Surprisingly and since birth, has never bothered to identify himself with the Ceremony or atleast donate just a decimal fraction of the massive wealth he has amassed within the short period of about six (6) years. This to me or any reasonable Traditional Leader is total disregard. But shamelessly and suddenly he decided to realise how important his bemba tradetional ceremony was. Ba CK can be a good politician but he needs to deal with his greatest enemies which are his MOUTH and his LEVEL of…

    • @27 Fair Judge, you are neither fair nor a good judge. Are you telling me that other politicians that attended that ceremony have a better MOUTH and LEVEL of judgement than CK? I would be very interested to know how better Mr. Lungu’s mouth and level of judgement are compared to CK. I am not a supporter of CK but I think you are being unfair to him. The chief blundered, that’s all! He should not have meddled in the issue. Also, the police were there to restore law and order against the PF youth right?

    • What is wrong with embarrassing the President. The President is a politician and politicians are embarrassed every where in democracies. The Zambian President is not a monarchy and he should know this. Being embarrassed as a politician is a common hazard. The problem is ignorance in Zambia, where you want to turn a President into a King or Lord. He is neither. The ignorance of our society encourages our leaders to become Dictators, complete with Hitler’s SS and Brown Shirts called cadres. These kind of tendencies should be discouraged. However, embarrassing politicians ( like pelting them with tomatoes) should be encouraged. It ensures the power of the people and reminds politicians that they are just human.
