Roan PF Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has called on President Edgar Lungu to fire Ministers Bowman Lusambo and Jean Kapata for physically attacking him at Parliament Buildings.

Mr Kambwili who described the two Ministers as guilty corrupt mercenaries said the two Ministers symbolizes the low calibre cabinet that Zambia has.

He said it was sad that the two Ministers choose to attack him physically over his series of corruption exposés instead of taking him to court.

Mr Kambwili narrated that “Lusambo followed me outside when I was talking to Hon Harry Kalaba and Hon Dr Imakando and came straight insulting me with unpalatables saying you won’t get away with exposing our corruption, he then slapped and punched me in full view of my colleagues but being an experienced parliamentarian I controlled myself and walked away.”

“To my surprise as I was walking away Jean Kapata came raging like a bull and poured a whole bottle of water on me and followed with grave insults,” he said.

Mr Kambwili said this is a clear indication that this government is corrupt and they are scared of being exposed.

“How does a minister assault a fellow MP all because of political pressure?”

“As for Jean Kapata I have not even started with you and your Mukula escapades. I look forward to the President firing both of these embarrassing Ministers who have the nerve to get physical with me,” he said.

He added, “I will not stop until you stop stealing, clearly these ministers do not understand “punch for punch”.

“What a low calibre cabinet we have and it makes me so sad.”

And a witness narrated how Mr Kambwili was the first to charge that Mr Lusambo during tea break.

“Mr Kambwili was standing with Minister of Foreign Affairs, Harry Kalaba and MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakachinda outside the floor of the House. Kambwili saw Copperbelt Provincial Minister Bowman Lusambo and immediately began addressing him,” the witness said.

He went into the tirade of insults against Lusambo; “Mwaice iwe chi$&*^chobe, walitumpa ulikabolala, Iwe mwaiche chi$&*^chobe, Kabolala mushibila nsala”

The witness said Mr Lusambo then charged towards Mr Kambwili and before they could know, he had given Mr Kambwili a hard slap and backhand slap.

“Kambwili began to give his mobile phones to Harry Kalaba and Nakachinda so he could fight back! Kambwili’s spectacles went flying to the ground with the slaps.”

Mr Kalaba and Mr Nakachinda were now standing between the duo separating them from what would have turned out to be a fist of fury fight.

At this stage Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Jean Kapata also came towards the scuffle, shouting at Mr Kambwili telling him to stop making unsubstantiated corruption allegations against her or she will “sort” him out!

She then emptied her water bottle on him.

“All happened in quick succession. To what appears to be a safety move and for his own protection, Kambwili walked back in the Chambers,” the witness said.

      Kambwili is under a lot of pressure because all the wealth he has obtained is directly due to abuse of office- how can someone who didn’t even own a truck before he was a minister then own 100 after being a minister???? What Kambwili is doing is a simple trick to distract attention so that the issues of his own are put aside! If there are smart people in PF they will see this trick and act accordingly- however for top guys in PF to fail to sort out issues such as the maize floor price, traffic roadblocks, corrupt acts such as the fire tenders I doubt they will handle this matter intelligently- sadly there are some dull people at the top that have destroyed PF-come 2021 it will be a matter of we the Real followers of Late Great MCS vision who told you so!

      These thugs are all made in Lungu’s image. That includes Kambwili.

      However, I do not condone violence. Only to defend oneself.

      Is it not lusambo that attacked kachingwe? If I remember correctly, lusambo even left the country to hide in his native Congo to avoid being caged. He only returned when Lungu got into power. He is a street cadre. From bus conductor to minister overnight.

      God help Zambia.

      Kambwili has surely lost his mind in frustration since he got kicked out of political privileges he also abused with impunity. What he has resorted to in anger o political tactic, is to viciously trap the administration in what is evolving into a circus. It requires wisdom and strategy than reactionary behavior.
      No excuse for Ministers to respond with fists when the country offers many avenues of addressing innuendoes or incendiary schemes. Resorting to fists at a high level is dangerous for the country as the political base may it pick up risking national peace. Its time for a leadership code that is seriously enforced again to promote ethics in public office.

      Matters and issues that take place at Parliamentary premises are not subject to litigation but to parliamentary disciplinary committee. Kambwili knows this fact very well, why is he wasting his time reporting to the police? How does he allow himself to be beaten by a small boy? He always calls Lusambo a small boy!!!!

      Soon faces of passengers will become their passports at One International Airport as instead of showing their passports and boarding passes, they will be able to board flights by just showing their faces.

      The airport is working on a project which will do away with requirements for a passenger to show passport and boarding pass at airport touch points.

      These attention seekers! Awe sure!
      Matthew 5:39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. I guess for CK the smacks were unbearable, so he run to the cops. He is a weak Christian. Mission failed. The naivety of CK exposed. “CK, Kufilila munsenga attitude”
      On a serious note, CK is playing childish. Lubinda, the next PF leader after ECL showed exemplary behaviour when he faced rejection and political battering from one Wynter Kabimba the cartelist. The Matthew 5:39 played well on this freely given Given. Not this attention seeker, CK.

      This is a thug govt and the uncouth savage behavior is testimony. There’s thieving in govt by the president and his minions and now not knowing what to do, in panic, they resort to violence. They should be prepared to face the law if they are innocent. Kambwili and all Zambians must exert unrelenting pressure until these criminals are jailed.

    I agree with CK, its high time this corrupt government got exposed, the fact that CK was part of the system that he is blaming of corruption, should not be the reason to hate CK. Whether CK is also corrupted or not you should not hate him for putting pressure on this government, instead we should all use this opportunity to bring both CK and this corrupt government to account.
    Please, don’t worst time blaming CK, he is your whistleblower, take it to the advantage of the common Zambians and focus on how we can get this government accountable.

      He started the whole fracas by insulting the person who slapped him – saves him right. It does not look like Bowman just walked to where Kambwili was and just slapped him – Kambwili invited the slaps and got them.

    What happened is not right but honest people will agree that Kambwili is very provocative. He’s all over various radio stations insulting people. If you provoke people don’t expect them to continue folding their arms forever. Kambwili is just an expandable tool for those desperate for power thinking that he can destroy PF on their behalf. Remember just as there are thousands who would love remove the PF, there also thousands who love PF.

    Well done Bownan.next time beat neckless Kambwili severely for him to have some manners.
    I knew that Bowman was provoked beyond limit by CK hence slaping him as the witness has confirmed here.thank God Hon.Kalaba was present too so he has already briefed president Edgar Lungu.hence Bowman and Ms.Jean Kapata cant be fired.Kambwili should know that the people he is provoking and insulting daily are human beings with feelings,so they have rights to react.WHO TOLD KAMBWILI THAT “PUNCH FOR PUNCH” POLITICS IS THE NONSENSE IS DOING?Late Michael Sata was not doing this rubbish,hence being loved by masses.today if CK ask majority Zambians over his behaviour currently,many will support Bowman and Jean Kapata and condemn!!
    CK should expect more beatings from fellow politicians and PF lovers…

    For those who were there when Kaunda was in power would be crying for those days now, he used to check his Cabinets wealth, and those found wanting were immediately fired. Reshuffles was order of the day in KAUNDA era, he was a no nonsense President who didn’t tolerate any stealing by his people. That is why after the end of the tenure of five years under performing MPs were left out and one could easily tell that they didn’t steal anything just by the way they lived.
    Our able President should use some of the approaches Kaunda and Levy Mwanawasa used so sort out these Ministers and MPs, the rate at which they are plundering the nation is way out of line and we are hearing that from their fellow colleagues. starting with maizegate, mukulagate, firegate, Ndola – Lusaka duo carriage way…

    FIGHTING IS LACK OF REASONING.I REALLY DON’T SUPPORT KAMBWILI’S BEHAVIOR BUT WHAT I KNOW IS THAT BOWMAN LUSAMBO IS A VERY VIOLENT MAN.
    PEOPLE SHOULD NOT FORGET SO SOON THAT AT ONE TIME HE ALMOST PHYSICALLY MAN HANDLED SATA WHEN HE LUSAMBO WAS IN MMD.IT HAD TO TAKE KAMBWILI AND OTHER PF MEMBERS TO PROTECT SATA.
    IT IS SO SURPRISING THAT TO DAY BOWMAN CAN BE MORE OF PF THAT OTHER WHO SUFFERED FOR PF SINCE IT’S INCEPTION.
    IT IS SO SAD OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PF.LUNGU MUST CHECK HIS CABINET OTHERWISE HE WILL CRY.

    BJ – Agreed. I remember how Bowan Lusambo handled Muhabi Lungu when they were greeting each other at the MMD secretariat. He was then Nevers Mumba’s faction supporter. He squeezed his hand ( Muhabi Lungu savagery) so much that you could see the pain in his face. This story together with the pictures were carried in the Post Newspaper then. He is a violent man. CK is not a coward and I’m happy he didn’t hit back. He should be careful they could be laying a trap for him so that they can arrest him.
