PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NO ONE SENT ANY YOUTHS TO HARASS HON CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI

Lusaka, Zambia, 28th October 2017 – The general public should dismiss insinuations being spread on social media that Patriotic Front sent its youths to harass Roan MP Hon Chishimba Kambwili. On a day such as 28th October, all Party members are under instructions from the leadership of the Party to conduct themselves in a manner befitting the great memory of our Party founding leader, late President Michael Sata.

We wish to state that the lawmaker attended the memorial Church service without any incident against him whatsoever. Unfortunately, he reportedly had confrontations at the memorial park.

Those who have watched the video circulating on social media will attest to the fact that besides the state police, it is the PF members, among them PF Lusaka Province Youth Secretary Stanley Chumya protecting Hon Kambwili and ensuring his safe passage to the vehicle. These are officials he is capable of identifying and can attest to fact that they indeed protected him.

PF has always condemned any form of violence irrespective of who the perpetrators are. We believe in the ideal that Zambians can and must co-exist irrespective of political differences. On this score, wish to restate our call for civilized political engagement. PF still holds the view that politics of provocation and resulting physical confrontation should not be identified with today’s body politic.

Lastly, we wish to commend the officials present at memorial park for responding positively to the call by the top Party leadership for maximum restraint even amidst provocation. Let us continue to lead by example.

Issued by:
Sunday Chanda,
PF Media Director

    • “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.'”Use of cadres usually chase away party members. You can enjoy a brief moment seeing someone being harassed forgetting that it is causing more harm than good. During UNIP era Vigilantes led by Mr. Tekele Banda harassed people,what happened UNIP lost. MMD era, Nakawala was used to push third term bid, what followed, defeat. “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

  1. There was no incident but those who watched d vedio could see him protected by PF members from who? Is this not self contradictory

  2. There was no incident but ypu comment yhe top party officials for showing restraint under extreme provocation.
    Who was doing the provocation and to who.Who did Hon Dr. Have the confrontations with if there was no incident that required the intervention of top officials ,
    Sunday dont rush to publish, sit bag write, re read edit then print then reread then publish if it doesnt have the obvious contradictions that this release has.

  3. I should have re-read, too many spelling mistakes… let this be a lesson to you Sunday.. now i have to apologize for the errors. Sorry

  4. These Pf *****s should be taught a big lesson in 2021. If Edgar Lungu is indeed a Democrat, let him condemn this act of cowardice.

    • Firstly, let’s distinguish whether the event was for PF or was it a national one. Secondly, if you say the event was problem free, then how come your party officials you’re commending for protecting CK doing, protecting him from what, and from who?

  5. Sunday Chanda should have done better, protecting illegality will not help build the party and 2021 will surely be tough with Kambwili as an opponent of Lungu.
    What is true is that Kambwili is a far much better public speaker than Lungu, therefore the PF will be hit harder this time. I can smell a re-run, probably between Kambwili and HH, from there onwards it will be a game of allies

  6. @abilima : Yes I confirm the guy next to Mwenya Musenge is Comrade Judge Ngoma, though clarity of his real self has somehow been compromised by ka small weight he seems to have lost

  7. I just watched the footage on ZWD…the insults they were spitting at him by the PF kaponyas, where is the leadership? Lazy Lungu if you tolerate this you will be next …you are nobody in that Party just a tool.

    • When you make your bed – sleep in it. How does Lungu come into all this? Somehow you are so obsessed with “Lazy Lungu, Lazy Lungu” in your postings – ridiculous and outright silly.

    • So you are saying that BUFFOON CK should be rough up for exposing Lazy Lungu’s corruption? Lazy Lungu comes in as he is the President of the Party just one word from him and this can stop instead he chooses to keep quiet and pretend to be humble and holy. Go to ZWD, watch the footage and listen to those insults…CK has every right to attend that ceremony.

    • Let CK get a dose of his own stupidity – what were his actions when he was on the other side. He has no moral right to expose any corruption.

  8. where ever pf cadres are present violence is not far off. Even at solemn places in times of respecting the dead pf have no whims about throwing punches.
    we all saw and remember how late mwanawasa dealt cadres! but since leadership is lacking in pf, for example kapata assaulting kambwili at parliament, lusambo mobilising his fellow thugs to harrass kambwili, we also have the SG davies mwila publicly declaring violence on kambwili for calling pf for who they are corrupt thieves.
    the reason violence is showing its face in pf is simply coz the father of the party is violent himself.. violences belongs to fools.

    • The same wolves Kambwili used to harass people? Remember he threatened to use the Chinese to block the social media? List is endless.

  11. I shudder to think what this country will like if we live by the example of the PF Media Director. Fortunately most of us ignore him.

  12. Lungu is a hostage president. He has no authority over his party cadres and his ministers.These same cadres and ministers will turn on him one day when time suits them. It is very disrespectful for ministers to organise cadres to harass a sitting mp in the presence of the president at a memorial and at church. No past president would have allowed this. Ministers have been acting with impunity knowing that their president will do nothing. I doubt if Lungu even knows some of the evils some of these ministers are involved in. I feel sorry for him. His so called humbleness is not good enough. It’s a terrible weakness. I think the presidency is proving too big for him.

  13. Surely this cannot go on forever!!! Mr President, can you please instruct your police officers to stop this nonsense that these so-called cadres are doing to our country.It is sending and denting the image of Zambia abroad and scaring those intending to come to Zambia.

  14. ABS its too late image of zambia is already tarnished. Zambia the real africa……what a proud tourist slogan. Come and witness the infighting, cadres fighting, threatened state of emergency, tourists really feel welcome knowing thsy can be locked up for walking at the wrong time in the wrong place
    We have tarnished our once proud nations image.

  15. National day of Prayer and reconciliation – he ha he ha he. Immediately after the prayers ka…. PF please. And they are the champions at denying everything….nefishilingile

  16. By the way Kambwili is the president of Mwenya Musenge’s party but he’s afraid to come out in the open because that would weaken his injunction against his expulsion from the PF.

  17. can Sunday accept that PF send cadres to harass Mr Kambwili? It is sad that we have such people as our leaders that even a little child can tell that our leaders are not good people.
    Integrity is the greatest virtue of true leadership. Lies are worst virtue to be detested by true leaders.
    A true leader fears GOD and live a godly life. He treat his enemies with love. Love conquers

  18. Dear country men, the devil has gotten hold of our country. Where are we? May we unite in prayer and send the devil to the pit of hell where he belongs. They pretend to be Christians, we only come to know who they really are through their deeds as Christ reminded us to do. They were forcing people to go for such prayers….but look at their deeds, they are filled with hate. Some of those who organized those cadres were from reading petitions in church. You can fool me, and anyone else, but not God. It’s just one day that you are going to know who he really is, you are going to seek him, and may not find him. Remember the evil of sodom and gormorah…do not play with God. We now know you by your fruits you are producing. Lord deliver our country from devil,s hand in Jesus,s name Amen
