United Party for National Development (UPND) Chikobo Ward Councilor in Kembe Constituency Reagan Mubatsa has said former Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili has financially assisted a lot of people across the country.

In an interview with Pan African Radio News recently, Mubatsa urged people criticizing Dr. Kambwili of not being helpful to Zambians during the time he served as Minister to separate politics from reality.

Mubatsa, who at some point struggled to raise tuition fees as a student at Evelyn Hone College of Applied Arts And Commerce in Lusaka, disclosed that Dr. Kambwili gave him helping hand.

“Former Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili has financially assisted a lot of people across the country” Mubatsa said

Meanwhile, Nkeyema Constituency Member of Parliament Kapelwa Mbangweta insists that it was wrong for Police to arrest citizens who intended to protest outside Parliament last week over the alleged corrupt acquisition of 42 Fire Tenders by Government.

In an interview with Pan African Radio News yesterday, Mbangweta says the action by Police to quell demonstrations spearheaded by Alliance for Community Action Executive Director Laura Miti was purely an infringement on their democratic rights as they were representing the general good of the citizenry.

Mbangweta states further that the procurement of the Fire Engines was a misplaced priority because Zambia has high levels of poverty and lags in public infrastructure.

And Mbangweta said the demonstrators were representing the wishes of the people of Zambia.

“It was wrong for Police to arrest citizens who intended to protest outside Parliament last week over the alleged corrupt acquisition of 42 Fire Tenders by Government” Mbangweta said

    • No wonder I say that corruption accusations only exists in the minds of those who are against pf. Ck corruption was exposed by upnd and today they are telling us that ck is not corrupt but kampyongo. When kampyongo gets fired they will stand with him and accuse someone else. There strategy is very childish.

    • We all assist people financially, including those we do not know. It is not just Kambwili that does so.

      The issue is not whether he was corrupt or not – I think we all suspect he was part and parcel of the corruption brigade while he was minister.

      However, Kambwili’s voice is timely in this current climate. He needs to expose those in government that are abusing their offices. If he did steal, he will share prison cells with Jonathan and others…he might serve shorter sentence for cooperating with authorities to expose the scam though.

      We have had enough!!.

  5. Stealing from people in millions and paying back in two digits what a joke. UPND are really dull people they cannot see the difference. A thief-CK steals K20,000 from you and helps you buy fuel for K50 as a result and you say he has helped me buy fuel he is a good man. Your political contributions are irrelevant and disgusting. It Just shows how UPND group is d.ull and short sighted. They have even forgotten that this is the same CK who said you are worse tribalists and cannot even vote for Jesus in preference of hech-hech if they stood for elections. Short memory.
    What a disaster.

  6. Upnd be wise enough if you want to have hh win 2021 election, First change the way you think in the line of politics (mind set).First, take off politics of hatred. Learn to practice SMART politics, employ best ways of winning the hearts of people in Lusaka, Copperbelt and other cosmopolitan cities or towns; Also learn to prove a point to GOVERNMENT Organizations ,( 3 arms of government ) , main CIVIL Society organizations (charitas Zambia e.g) And ambassadorial relationships ( Britain,USA ,RUSSIA , CHINA and FRANCE) , Chiefs , church mother bodies . As it is upnd sound so desperate to win CK to join UPND , hoping if he joins definitely upnd will win.GBM ,ASCOT,MULENGA saga, etc. came and join UPND but the outcome was disastrous. Tribal voting blind folded upnd by concluding that they did…

  8. If you steal what initially belongs to me and give it back, that’s not helping. If it was his hard earned money, we would say he helped.

  9. No one is perfect but if in our imperfection we can reach out to the less fortunate it makes a big difference.
