Roan PF Member Chishimba Kambwili on Tuesday told Parliament that Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo slapped him twice in the car park at Parliament Buildings.

Mr Kambwili also alleged that Lands Minister Jean Kapata poured a full bottle of water during the fracas.

Mr Kambwili rose on a point of order and reported to Speaker Patrick Matibini that he had been attacked by Mr Lusambo and Ms Kapata in the car park in the presence of Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba, Finance Minister Felix Mutati and MMD faction National Secretary Racheal Nakachinda.

Mr Kambwili said Mr. Lusambo slapped him twice unprovoked and started hurling insults at him.

“Mr Speaker, I stand on a very serious point of order, Mr Speaker when I walked out, I went and stood with honorable Kalaba and honorable Imakando. As we were talking, I was approached by Honourable Lusambo who came and told me ‘we are going to deal with you for your accusation against government’. I did not not answer him and he slapped me, two slaps. Two slaps in the presence of honorable Kalaba and the General secretary for the MMD Mr Nakachinda. While I was retreating, Jean Kapata came with a bottle of water,” Mr Kambwili narrated.

He continued, “Honourable Jean Kapata came where I was, she sprinkled a full bottle of water on me and started insulting me, some of the insults that I cannot mention on the radio. And the only thing I told her ‘if you are a thief, what am saying affects you but if you are not a thief why attack me?’ and I came back to the chamber. Are these two honorable members of parliament in order to start behaving like thugs at the National Assembly premises without taking due regard of their responsibilities that the people of Zambia have sent them to this house?”

“Are they in order to attack me at the presence of parliament? I need your serious ruling. Thank you Mr Speaker,” Mr Kambwili said.

And Speaker Matibini has reserved ruling in the matter.

He said the report needs to be investigated after which the House will be appraised of the next course of action.

Later, Ms Kapata also rose on a point of order and attempted to defend her actions.

“Mr Speaker, I rose earlier on a point of order and thats the point of order which I wanted to raise. Is the honorable member of parliament for Roan, Mr Speaker in order to go round every radio station, whatever the point of order he has raised has where its coming from, going on all the radio stations and calling me Jean Kapata that am a thief, I have stolen through Mukula?”

She said, “I have been a member of parliament for this house for 15 years to build one house, ‘you are a thief’ honorable Kambwili, I don’t have time to be going to court to waste time, this is why Mr Speaker when he walk out of the house after honorable Chitotela’s answers, he started insulting us and calling us names outside and you wanted us to keep quiet and watch him?”

“I need your serious ruling Mr Speaker, Mr Kambwili must be tamed as member of parliament, he must behave like a honorable member of parliament,” Ms Kapata said.

      Every time I see Lusambo he minds me a guy I knocked down at Dolphines Night club in Ndola in 2006. He tried to bully me over a parking spot under a street light. He must Bowman.
      I kicked him in left libs, he clinched then I landed a knee on his head. A move I learned in grade 6. It sounded painful, as everybody moved away!!

      Only two slaps??? Kambwili did not even feel it with all that blubber (fat) on his face. Lusambo should have made him bleed.

      Time and again I have said, these masquerades have no qualities of even being referred to as Honourable, they have lowered the standards of Ministerial and Parliamentary positions to even below those of the kabovas, gonenas and mere illiterates. The word Honourable is synonymous with the following: truthful, sincere, candid, frank, open, forthright, ingenuous, straight, upright, moral, ethical, principled, righteous, right-minded, respectable, virtuous, good, decent, fair, law-abiding, high-minded, upstanding, incorruptible, truthful, trustworthy, reliable, conscientious. Do you see any of the foregoing in the conduct and behaviour of these fools? Or even in half of the PF Cadres in parliament? I think it is high time we stopped abusing the term by not using it to address these thugs,…

      SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE!

      I may be lagging behind on some latest developments in our Political System; Wasn’t Kambwili elected MP on a PF ticket? Why is he still an MP now that he has been fired from the PF? Hasn’t the Roan seat fallen vacant with his dismissal from PF?

      Kambwili is right to report them to the speaker. He can go to police too, if he wants too. These MPs have a certain level of etiquette they are held to, but the are proving to be thugs. They can’t deal with real issues. They are so used to bullying others, but now they are cornered in their own web.

      Sickening…You don’t solve national issues with thuggery. Kambwili is a brainless thug with a false sense of entitlement to plunder league. But the reactionary acts of 2 Government ministers manifests the kind of deep national leadership has sunk in. KK and Mwanawasa would have fired them immediately. What becomes of Zambia if cadres and our children have such scalawags in leadership? President Lungu needs to redeem himself from this siege of retards. Its time for nation and character above self. Ignoring this is a dangerous recipe for total anarchy in the land.

      Kambwila is too exited for nothing. He wants too abuse other people without credible evidence. Kambwili is more corrupt than the people he is acusing. As for me, he should have been battered enough to end up in hospital.

      Lusambo and Kapata should be suspended pending investigations on this! Indiscipline especially where it borders on physical confrontation should never be tolerated. Whether Kambwili is the worst crook ever because he has amassed over USD42million himself whilst being a minister so what a hypocrite this fat toad is but still its is good he has brought this matter to the fore so that we get to the bottom of the fire tender matter but Kambwili too needs to be thoroughly investigated! The chap owns over 200 housing units, 100 trucks, 50 latest high end vehicles such as Lamborghini, latest RangeRover and BMW X6!

    She has admitted guilt. I’m not a Kambwili fan but pouring water on anyone is assault. Slapping him is even worse. An MP cant be committing this kind of crime. Matibini should rule like a judge not like a political cadre. if these two did this they should leave the house permanently

    Jean just wanted mbwili thing to take a bath. She was just trying to help him take a bath after all its hot nowadays and some people smell badly you know. No case – next!
    A slap was just to make him wake up and not sleep with tonga hechihechi. Bowman was also just trying to help mbwili realise his mistakes in trying to enter the tonga den! hence the two slaps.
    What a disaster!

    Behaving like mon.keys in a zoo, just to silence poor guy, CK. This victimization should stop. CK as any other Zambian has the right to ask the politician, why are they getting so aggressive? Damn, who do you think can buy into these explanations like I have a wealth boyfriend who is an aeronautic engineer and can afford to build houses for her??….bul.s.hit !!! or I have been an MP for 15years….. But CK has been in Parliament as well, I am sure he knows how much they can be worthy after 15years. Instead of resorting harassing CK, let them just explain or take CK to court. Saying she has no time for the court is just another excuse. These people are under pressure now, all people on this forum ought to support this initiative to hold these MP liable

    IF INDEED LUSAMBO SLAPED HIM,THEN BRAVO TO BOWMAN LUSAMBO.KAMBWILI SHOULD BE BEATEN FOR HIM TO HAVE MANNERS!!infact he is very luck.if it was during KK or FTJ Chiluba time,Kambwili could have been 6 feet down by now FOR TARNISHING THE IMAGE OF THE PRESIDENT OUT OF BITTERNESS!!its people like Kambwili and HH who make our local politics dirty.WE MUST BE DOING CIVILISED POLITICS AND NOT ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY ONE HAS…

    But sink we do, and we sink even WORSE than in those Countries because, whereas they are so passionate about issues affecting their constituents that them end up fighting over that, ours is about WHO STOLE THE MOST from the electorate and Taxpayers.

    This is the beginning kambwili deserves that , bitterness has caused kambwili to behave very bad. If kambwili was a man of integrity he wouldn’t have come to the point of giving information which is sensitive because he’s under oath. Globally, governments have SYSTEMS in they operates,Running a country really needs people who are patriotic not like the characters we have in Zambia,the so called politicians the likes of CK.And the man has no wisdom at all. Now young bowman lusambo is beating him on the expense of his political misconduct, if he continues his behavior he will not be regarded as our political avacular figure but a foolish man and cadres will sort him out, above can anyone counsel him!

    Biggest problem with Zambians, you care more about who has delivered the message rather than the message itself. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that $42million for fire trucks is a rip off and basically a deal that enables people to profit. Kambwili is giving you information you would not have known had he not opened your eyes, receive it with both hands. The PF is in and over its head now with corruption, and the final piece will be the privatization of ZESCO.
