Chief Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili
Former Chief Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili

Opposition National Democratic Congress Spokesperson Erick Chanda has revealed that Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili will run for the republican presidency under the NDC ticket in the 2021 general elections.

Mr Chanda said only Mr Kambwili has the political muscle and stamina to beat the PF in the 2021 elections.

He said the combined force of Mr Kambwili and party Secretary General Mwenya Musenge will dismantle the PF in the next general elections.
Mr Chanda was speaking on Tuesday morning when he featured on the Let the People Talk radio programme on Radio Phoenix along with Mr. Musenge.

He clarified that Mr Kambwili is currently operating as a Consultant for the NDC because he does not want to cause a by election in Roan Constituency.

“As a caring leader, he is alive to the fact that the treasury is dry and causing a by election because he doesn’t agree with Edgar (President Edgar Lungu) will be very irresponsible of him. He is working as a Consultant so that we can continue to represent his people in Parliament and help our party defeat the PF,” Mr Chanda said.

He said he has faith in Mr Kambwili’ and Mr Musenges abilities to deliver because he has closely worked with them.

“I have seen what Comrade Kambwili and Comrade Musenge can do and this is why I have offered my services. These two don’t ever fail to complete what they have started. The Consultant is our candidate for 2021 and so it is Kambwili only for 2021,” Mr Chanda said.

  1. Mmmm… Now things are getting very interesting. Looks like UPND and PF have a new challenger, time to “up” the games!

    • Chishimba is a strong contender. At present, he is likely to do very well in Copperbelt, some parts of Lusaka, Northern and Luapula provinces. What this is likely to do in the interim is propel HH to State House once the Copperbelt vote is split. After that, the “Bemba-aligning” provinces will shun the PF and move NDC.

    • The ranting man and the running man are an impossible mission. They will now give Koswe more options and avenues for rigging.

    • Ba Kambwili, just work with UPND and flush the Koswes out, if you decide to go ahead and stand, you will split the votes and turn the Zambian wheels backwards. Why can’t you learn from the past?

    • Personally I think Kambwiri is just a clown and our country has already stumbled under Nyama Soya, the Cobra, Under 5 (rightly kept away) and ECL. Out of the 4, I would vote for ECL any day! They (The PF) are just hellbent on self distruct! We need a leader with a new way of thinking! Even Mushota would do better than CK!

    • I love this … another useful clown throws his hat in the ring!!! Let’s get ready to ruuuuuuummmmmmble!!! He will get bruised once and for all so that he would learn the lesson of never over-estimating his own capacity.

      The smart people of the Zambian Enterprise are so smart, I can always bet on them and they have never let me down, even when it came to getting rid of my parte UNIP, they chose what their calculus told them to be a net benefit.

      I like what I see. May the best team win … Let’s roll!!!

    • He’s refusing leave the PF because of gratuity. In any case the statement above can be used in court as evidence against his appeal against expulsion from PF. Above all it shows how deceitful and slippery the 2021 candidate can be.

    • He was supposed by the ruling Party and he was wired by a non-entity in Chimwemwe. At least those of us in Kitwe knew that the pot-bellied crook was not going anywhere. And some people are dreaming that he is somebody on the Copperbelt!

  3. No manifesto ,no vision and no track record all you need is being a former minister to qualify to run for presidency in Zambia. No wonder we’ve been flat or mediocre the last 53yrs.

  6. The focus is to defeat PF. Nothing to do with improving people’s lives. No manifesto, the only ideology motivating Zambian opposition is to defeat PF. UPND prepare for swearing in. NDC and PF will never penetrate your stronghold and so they will share the areas were you are weak. This is nothing but the split of PF.

    • Following your logic it means UPND Will drastically reduce votes in Luapula,Northern,Muchinga,Copperbelt,Eastern &Lusaka because they will be coming a distant third while they will lead in their strong holds and PF will be second there and still come first in PF strong holds so UPND still loses the national vote…To beat a ruling party it has to be a knock out and this is an analysis VJ would give and then you would accuse him of rigging and yet the trend is clear…

    • No Zakeyo, he means UPND will lead and what PF got in last year’s election will be split into two. E.g PF got 9000 votes in Luapula, UPND got 7000. So UPND will get their 7000 while PF and NDC will share the 9000.

  7. I tend to question the wisdom of people supporting Chishimba Kambwili for presidency in 2021. The truth is that Kambwili is a conman with very questionable integrity. He claims that he was awarded an honorary doctorate by California University in the US. But there is no such thing as California University in the US. The only universities in California are those that belong to either to the California State University or the University of California System. If in doubt, just contact these universities and you will discover that Kambwili didn’t obtain his so-called honorary doctorate from any of these reputable universities. He obtained his “doctorate” from “California University FCE which is actually a daycare centre and also operates as an accreditation centre for qualifications obtained…

    • Never mind about such this country’s political landscape is full of such; Kaunda, Chiluba, Mwanawasa, Mpombo, GBMx, Nevers, Nawakwi, Maurine, Pule man the list is endless. What must be the bother is why UPND & PF are sincerely worried about CK the MBWILI.
      None of the two leaders in PF & UPND are self made political pandits, CK is make no mistake. Just listen to the guy he knows which arsenal to employ for a particular audience!

      Who cares? Its not degrees that work all the time. President Sata (mhsrp) made a very good Health Minister compared to professional doctors runing the ministry of health. Let Kambwili contest as the constitution allows him as he does not need degrees but to be a Zambian only.

  9. To prove my point, just Google. You will discover that “California University FCE” actually does exist as a private, for-profit school. But it is listed as “Beverly Hills RC School”, doing business as “California University FCE”. It is listed by the California State Board of Education as a K1 school with 30 students enrolled in 2016. In the USA, elementary education institutions are listed by their grade specialization. A “K12” school is one that offers education from Kindergarten (nursery school) through grade 12. A “K1” school like “California University FCE”, therefore, is one that offers education from Kindergarten (nursery school) through grade one. This in effect means Honorable Chishimba Kambwili obtained his honorary doctorate from a nursery school!

    • Just wait and see those singing praise for ECL & HH will be the very first ones to run to NDC at the critical hour; ask KK, RB and veterans like VJ and Sokota Wina. Bwana in politics we have seen people change overnight to the chagrin of the serving presidents.
      These PF and UPND supporters are just lice awaiting next survival movement! William Banda, Felix Mutati, etc

    • Bwana pieces of paper you call manifestos do not resonate with the majority of the voters but what leadership you project, if such was a measure UPND or NAREP would have formed government long before the PF, alas baba its as good as toilet shinda paper!

    • Nkweto,

      Take it from me. Kambwili never even set foot at Copperstone University. He was corruptly given a Bachelor of Arts degree in Development Studies by a corrupt Vice Chancellor who wants to boost the image of his so-called university. As for for California University it doesn’t exist except in the fertile imagination of people like you and Kambwili himself!

  13. If PF had adopted Kambwili, Kabimba or GBM after Sata died, I would have voted for hh. Now Kambwili sets up his own party with Menya Musenge (who lost his parliamentary seat in 2016!) and they expect to automatically challenge the current political situation?? Even people supporting these clowns today should ask themselves, what ideology, what manifesto, what basis are they using??? Ideology of hate for ECL, manifesto to come and do exactly what the PF is doing or worse??? I think Zambia deserves better opposition.

  16. NDC Chishimba Kambwili and PF Edgar Lungu are the same people, they have only differed in sharing the proceeds from national plunder and corruption. Both deserve to be in jail.

  17. The problem with political jokers is that they get elected. History has proven this correct. Look at Michael Sata and Donald Trump. I never imagined that Sata or Trump would win but they did both on a rhetorical ticket. If Chishimba stands then he will split the the PF vote. Which will make it impossible for any of the candidates to have a 50 per cent plus one. This will mean a re-run. I can assure you that in case of a re-run those who supported Kambwili will vote for PF even if Kambwili went into a pact with HH. Don’t ask me why because if you have been following Zambian politics you should understand why.

  20. CK is a clown.
    He can’t get 50+1.
    I see the PF extending their rule beyond 2021.
    Edgar is much more complex and wise than pipo give him credit.
    There are many genuine players who will come on board .

  21. Leadership crisis in Zambia steams from the constant suppression and closures of the highest institutions of learning. Zambia is producing experts in corruption rather than gallant men and women striving to make the country better. When you have men are women driven by politics of the belly and the fact that it’s okay for people in high positions to make irrational decisions and mistakes dilute the caliber of leaders required to take us out of our mess. President Mwanawasa worked tirelessly to reverse the fortunes of our country but it only took two years of PF to destroy all that hard work. Now the likes of kambwili feel confident enough to lead this country.

  23. My appeal yo our new National PF chaiperson is to quickly settle down and reconcile kambwili, kampyongo and HE Edgar Lungu. Kampyongo and kampyongo and Kambwili are brothers ( umuto walupwa) while HE and Kambwili are tribe cousins. What we went through to bring PF where it is should be the reason for bringing these three people togather
