Jack Mwiimbu Chairman – Legal

Leader of the opposition in Parliament Jack Mwiimbu has charged that it is shameful that President Edgar Lungu hosted Congolese leader Joseph Kabila in Lusaka who was on a two day working visit.

Mr Mwiimbu who is also UPND Monze Central Member of Parliament also charged that it is shameful and disgraceful for President Lungu to state that the international community should not interfere with the happenings in the DRC.

He said the whole world knows that the term of office of President Kabila whom he described as a butcher of Congo ended in 2016.

Mr Mwiimbu said Mr. Kabila is an illegitimate dictator who should not be supported by any right thinking person.

“It’s a shame that Lungu is wining and dining with the butcher of Congo. Millions of Congolese have died as a result of the impunity African dictators and their lumpen Congolese sycophants. Any birds of the same feathers flock together,” he said.

And political activist Macdonald Chipenzi has charged that welcoming President Kabila is a display of weak leadership in the SADC region.

Mr Chipenzi said the SADC region will continue to be a laughing stock on the African Continent, if not the entire world, from a soft coup in Zimbabwe, to a presidential recall vote by a political party in South Africa and now to an unconstitutional President in DRC.

“How, in all fairness, can Zambia be that country that welcomes and accommodates Joseph Kabila with presidential decorum? He does not deserve such treatment at all. These are the times when I greatly miss late President Levy Patrick Mwanawasa. For him, he would have already spoken his minds out and that of Zambia on Kabila’s unconstitutional stay in power like he did on Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe,” Mr Chipenzi said.

“Don’t President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and his government aware that Kabila’s constitutional electoral mandate ended in 2016 and his current stay in power is unconstitutional as he is refusing to vacate office despite repeated demands from his people? Does it mean that Zambia’s cries over the refugee situation are bogus or cosmetic? One would think, with the facts on the ground that Zambia has greatly suffered in terms of asylum seekers and refugees over Kabila’s decision to cling onto power even after his electoral constitutional mandate expired in 2016, the country would be more firm on Kabila to relinquish power.”

Mr Chipenzi stated that it seems that Zambian leaders are benefiting from the situation prevailing in the DRC hence their accommodation of such unconstitutional president into the country at the same time claiming to be a constitutional democracy without any kind of social shame.

“Not too long ago, this government, through Cde Steven Kampyongo, was shedding crocodile tears in Chienge District over the asylum seekers and refugee situation in Luapula Province. He and President Lungu even appealed for international help from the international community towards the refugee crisis in the country but at the same time having no problems in accommodating Kabila as a friend. Was that appeal of financial help a fundraising project for them if they are not interested in resolving the electoral and political crisis in the DRC?”

He added, “Yet, despite deputizing the SADC organ on Politics, Defence and Security known as the Troika, the same government seems to be so happy to strengthen trade and other bilateral ties with this electoral leper in the region notwithstanding the butchering of his people happening in his country while he clings onto power.  In serious democracies, Kabila would have suffered isolation, economic and travel sanctions within the SADC region and on the African Continent. He would not have been allowed to attend SADC or AU functions.”

Mr Chipenzi charged that it is disheartening to see how SADC has remained tolerant to Mr. Kabila and yet millions of Congolese women and children are suffering while their fathers are butchered in war as soldiers or militias.

    • Its a shame that you cant see the culture of clinging on to power in your own UPND and blame other countries which are being led by leaders like you. UPND cadres always failing to think right. Did you see ECL at the airport on kabila’s arrival and departure? Where was it safe for ECL to consult kabila from kinshasa or from Lusaka? If you dont consider Kabila president of DRC who then is the leader of DRC? I think its their internal matters to choose who to them civilized way or UPND way.

    • Of course, Lungu and Kabila are identical in thinking. Can the President of Botswana or Ghana host Kabila? Never! Its just beyond shameful that the Zambian presidency has been lowered to the level of people like Lungu. Very sad!!!

FIRST THE MAJOR CONSUMER OF YOUR CEMENT INCLUDING MAIZE MEAL IS CONGO, MAYBE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO LUAPULA PROVINCE. HOWEVER, WHENEVER YOU WILL GO THERE JUST KNOW THAT YOU WILL PASS THROUGH DR CONGO USING PEDICLE ROAD WHICH IS ONE OF THE MAJOR ECONOMIC FACTOR TO ZAMBIA AND WHICH IS WHY LUAPULA PROVINCE IS SO BEHIND IN DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE OF POLITICS AND THE BAD STATE OF PEDICLE ROAD IN WHICH IT USED TO BE A FEW YEARS AGO. MIND YOU, A GOOD POPULATION OF ZAMBIANS LIVE IN KATANGA PROVINCE. AND I AM SURE YOU DON’T KNOW THAT MAYBE 8000 CONGOLESE REFUGEES ARE CURRENTLY IN ZAMBIA. THERE SO MANY THINGS FOR THIS LIMITED SPACE. BUT, I HAVE GIVEN YOU…

    • It’s only the Roman Catholic Church that is standing up against Joseph Kabila. In view of the millions of Congolese languishing in refugee camps, and those being slaughtered on a day to day basis, what a shame that any Zambian politician can stretch his or her hand to shake hands with this monster.

    • Anybody who believes and thinks lungu and kabila were holding bilateral talks that centred on the dictator’s departure from DRC lives in cuckoo land. This was more like The Bonnano crime family of New York meeting with the Ndrangheta crime family of Italy specifically to talk about how to mutually profit in drug trafficking, extortion and other criminal activities. lungu would rather encourage his fellow illegal president to hang on as he would expect kabila to do the same for him, as a favour for one crime lord to another.

      9

      10
    • And what makes Mwiimbu and Chimpenzi think that the issues they are rising are the reasons why President Lungu had to have a face to face sit-down with Kabila?

      The idea that when a leader of a neighboring Country is having difficulties/problems in their own Country then they are not welcome to visit Zambia is really silly and counterproductive. If you don’t talk to your neighbors then how do you resolve the very issues these two are talking about? Send in tanks to sort out Kabili and prop up Moise Katumbi?

      Why is Mwiimbu talking like he was born yesterday? Did he live through KK’s way of conducting complicated and difficult Diplomacy? Kaunda talked and met with Characters liked John Volster (sp) and the Ian Smith’s of this world. Despite their abhorrent behaviors and treatment…

      11

    • Continue…

      ….of their own citizens, talked and met with them. And that’s how you resolve difficult issues short of military entanglements.

      And, I might add, no one can accuse the old man KK to have failed in his strategy. Because in the end both Apartheid Rhodesian regimes fell. That’s what Zambia is best known for and not empty rhetoric and misplaced bravado!

    • @ 1.14 HH Oval head:
      “Ba katolika are the ones behind Rwanda genocide….” That is wild fiction. In any case, Congo DRC is a million times bigger than Rwanda. Congo is too big to wear Rwanda’s funeral gown. We are talking about Patrice Lumumba, ruling for only three months, before being executed. We are talking about Mobutu Sese Seko raping that country for 31 years, or there about, the Kabilas…. Presently, Congo DRC is the world’s largest and most complicated refugee crisis. Can’t we say “Enough is enough?” Or must we be oblivious to what the Catholics are doing there, just because we, ourselves are “Protestants”?

What is obtaining in Botswana is different from Zimbabwe, S.A., Malawi and Zambia. Your big mouthed political commentaries are so uninformed and show no signs of maturity.

If we become hostile to them we are going to lose business and they will stop us from using the pedicle road. Joseph Kabila has breached his own country’s constitution. It is not the SADC constitution that he has breached. I stand to be corrected. With the current happenings in this country we might just be the ones heading to another country as refugees

  4. Ba Mwiimbu and Chipenzi, you are children, not everything can be revealed to you.

    The problem in Congo cannot be solved by avoiding Kabila. It can be solved by engaging Kabila.

    • Ba Spaka muli tuye sana, don’t you know that Kabila’s main opponent Moise Katumbi spends most of his time in Zambia. ECL is okay in engaging Kabila because the issues in the Congo will not be resolved without involving Kabila. If you also didn’t know, a major place in the happenings in the Congo is Rwanda and both Kabila and Kagame must be engaged to resolve the issues in the Congo. Both Kabili and Kagame are used by the your darlings the Americans to look after American interests in the Congo.

    • And what makes you think that if Kabila leaves the problem of Congolese refugees will automatically go away? You are really naive if you think that.

      Mind you, Congolese have had to seek refuge in neighboring Countries for decades now. This problem didn’t just start when Kabila Jr. became President.

  9. Mind your language. In diplomacy, all neighboring countries must be treated as political allies unless they declare war against your country. Congo is not fighting Zambia and Congo will never fight Zambia. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is a sovereign independent state. It enjoys the right to choose its own leaders. At the moment, that elected head of state exists in DRC is Joseph Kabila. Therefore, diplomatic etiquette dictates that foreign heads of state receive respect and dignity. When the people of DRC are ready for political change, then they will choose another Congolese head of state. When Zambians fled into the Congo in search of refuge, then nobody talked. When Congolese flocked into Zambia in search of refuge, then somebody talked.

    • @Doctor Makasa ( private citizen).
      When did Zambians ever go to DRC to seek refuge? I am personally unaware of it. Since the beginning of Zaire up to now, it’s always been people from DRC that come to Zambia to seek refuge. You people must atleast feel bad for the people of DRC who are always running away from their homes walking hundreds of KMs mostly women and children running away from wars caused by Kabila.

    • The issue of Zambian refugees that fled into DRC is painful for Zambians. That is why the issue remains generally blackout. Historians will debate the issue endlessly. There is also no denial of existence of conflict in Great Lakes Region in general and in DRC in particular. The conflict has internal causes and also causes that are external to the region. It is a classic example of disintegration or instability. In a nutshell, it is prudent for the Zambian government to work with the government of the day in DRC. This cooperation does not imply that the people of Zambia are supporting authoritarianism and dictatorial tendencies. On the contrary, Zambia as a neighboring country is applying constructive engagement. The people of DRC will resolve their political differences soon rather later.

  15. I am surprised that a graduate cannot understand that countries can only solve problems by intracting. Even the two Koreas have planned to meet. We’ve got thousands of people running away from the DRC and therefore there’s need to meet and discuss. In any case we don’t know what the two governments discussed behind doors. In short Mr Mwiimbu is suggesting that we should also close the Congolese border because Kabila is president?

    • @Ndanje: You can imagine. That is the calibre of people we have as leaders in waiting. So upnd and Mwiimbu would start attacking their fellow leaders in the region instead of engaging them in dialogue to resolve issues??? WOULDN’T THAT BE CHAOTIC???? Meanwhile Mwiimbu is loyal to a leader within his party who has abrogated the party constitution and overstayed, lost 5 national elections and he wants to preach democracy??? And the upnd member/supporter masquerading as a political analyst/governance activist Chipenzi wants to condemn SADC??? What a government upnd would run!!!

      I concur. Much as we may appreciate diplomacy, the public deserves to get even just a smell from the kitchen. We have no idea what it was they cooked, and no idea what it was they ate. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking, people in DRC are dying. That’s not what KK did when dealing with the Boers of the Apartheid regime. Joseph Kabila is an outlaw. His term expired long time ago. Is this the kind leadership Zambia is willing to subscribe to, even to the point of having dark corner meetings with that rascal? Should we call that “diplomacy”?

Whether the Upnd knows or what’s going is not important., what’s important is that a good outcome is achieved by convincing Joseph to leave office peacefully.

      What has Kabila got to do with UPND? It is as though to surmise that the Congo flows into the Zambezi river. It doesn’t. While the two rivers may originate from the same watershed, each flows in a direction different from that of the other, one heading west, and the other east.

    • Imutwe, what does Mwiimbu represent? You guys in Upnd are confused how can you ask a question on something which is obvious. It’s Upnd through dull Jack who are queries the visit. ..it’s not rainbow, FDD, MMD or another party.

    • @21.5 Ndanje Khakis:

      “…Kabila has a strong hand over the DRC …” He is a dictator, came to Zambia to represent his own views, not those of the people he is oppressing. Now Lungu has become his messenger, on a mission to Rwanda. Taking a smile from a dictator is like kissing a green mamba. It is a NO, NO.

  16. THESE UP AND DOWN PUPPETS CLOSE THEIR EYES WHEN DICTATORSHIP IS REIGNING IN THEIR BANTUSTAN PARTY AND ONLY HAVE SIGHT WHEN IT IS HAPPENING ELSEWHERE. CHILEMA AND KABILA ARE BOTH ILLEGAL PRESIDENTS AS THEY HAVE NO MANDATE FROM ANY ONE. KABILA CAME TO CONSULT WITH PRESIDENT LUNGU WHILE CHILEMA DOES NOT EVEN CONSULT ANY ONE AS ALL HIS FOLLOWERS ARE CONSIDERED USELESS BY HIM. LOLENI BA UPND AS YOU ARE ALSO BEING LED BY A DESPOT IN CHILEMA.

  17. UPND has never governed so they have no clue of international diplomacy. Lungu is head of SADC security committee. The stability of DRC is important to Zambia and the region at large. DRC political history is complicated and understanding were that country is today is to roll back the history carpet. Mwimbu has failed to do this and is exposing his ignorance of the situation and role of Zambia in the stability of the region.

    Mwimbu must ask himself why major Western countries do not talk ill of Kabila. DRC needs a strong dictator.

    I do not like this tribalistic party.

    • I’ve just been listening to a clip on KK and how he forced to meet Ian Smith and John Vorster for the sake of peace in both Southern Rhodesia and RSA even though these two leaders were oppressors of our people. They called it constructive engagement where you have to meet physically. Without the Soviet Union meeting the USA the world could still be faced with the Cold War or even worse. It’s only a person who’s been living in rat hole who doesn’t understand the intricacies of diplomacy.

  19. its a shame that most Zambians are supporting kabila’s visit and giving comparisons of HH holding to power…Joseph kabila’s term in power came to an end last year but failed to hand over power to next person reasons known to himself also killing a lot of people who were in the right..us Zambians as a christian nation and champions of democracy was supposed to criticize him/not entertain such chaps for not doing the same but imwe be muna enda kusikulu can’t read between the lines we have alot of refugees here in zambia because of people like greedy kabila

  20. Jack Mwimbu! Love him or hate him ECL is the head of state of the Republic of Zambia. Solving problems is not only isolating the person you want to help or advise. Jack Mwimbu, how do you resolve differences in your home? do you chase away or isolate your wife or children? Dialogue is the only way to solve problems_ childish rantings on roof tops are old tacticts of dealing with issues. It is usually practiced by the likes of HH and his associates in Southern Africa. This leads me to another point, it is this lack of experience and outright underfive manners that will not help your party to ascend to national Governance. Insteady of planning national issues and making UPND democratic you are singing praises to your “god”- HH life president.

    • What if other people refused to get into our issues? We had a fire here recently, when HH was in Mukobeko Maximum prison. We couldn’t extinguish that fire by ourselves. Other people came to our rescue. And now we would rather wash our hands and say: “The bible says , its only God to judge. us as Zambians we cant enter into other people issues.” What a shame!

  21. Stupid leaders want to create traumatic lives for the citizenry.Look at Syria,because of one ***** the nation is turmoil.Children are ever traumatized and crying day in day out.Leaders should learn to create space for others when their time elapses.It is not a matter of keeping grey beards at the expense of the majority.Grey beards is not a sign of wisdom.It is stupidity and imbecility of the worst kind.People don’t want you and you are forcing them to love you.You are a big shame to Africa.

    • His constitutional term limit expired in December of 2016.He claims he is clinging to power (in defiance of Congo’s constitution) to save Congo from a political crisis – a claim only the truly deluded would advance or subscribe to.

  25. Uncommon sense, don’t say all Zambians are against Kabila’s visit. Did you ask us if we are also against the DRC’s president?
    The visit is welcome and it was done for the safety of our brothers and sisters whose places share the border with Congo. If there is no peace between the two Leaders the security of these places will be at risk, look at the magnitude of refuges from DRC crossing into Zambia, maybe that was one of the issues on the agenda.
    The cross border trade at Kasumbalesa border post, the alleged hosting of Katumbi in Zambia who is in exile in DRC.
    The passage of the Zambian road through DRC to Luapula province, the security of the passage of our brothers and sisters through that portion requires unity between the two sitting president, in short Zambia and DRC are…

  26. Mwiimbu please wake up….
    we have got no problem with Kabila as a Country…..Zambia – Congo boarders are open daily and as a nation economically we are benefiting from that including you Jack…should we continue doing business with Congolese and block their head of state to come and visit us? is it making sense to you so called normal thinking Jack?
    Congolese have to settle their own internal affairs, NOT Lungu..
    Jack your enemies are not our enemies, Gadhafi was killed like a mad dog with Rabies, did you send any letter to Au/UN to protect him? Why?
    Those are very cheap politics Jack, Watch your mouth and speak sense…

  27. It would be better for Chipenzi to leave Mwanawasa out of this, shall we leave him to rest in peace? He afterall not a saint. Vernon Johnson Mwaanga got fired because of DRC. We want a peaceful transition in DRC and that can only be achieved through diplomacy. Lunatics in the UPND have brutalized their relatives and chiefs for not supporting Hichilema because they don’t believe in dialogue. It”s considered a grave sin to even greet members of the PF, that’s UPND for you. There are many Zambians in DRC who are affected by in instability in Congo. There’s no political process in DRC that will work without the participation of Kabila

    • No one is saying the peacfull transition can take place without kabila , what we are saying is lungu and his GRZ should be more open and informative instead of doing every thing like the shifting mukula logs in the dead of night……a more sensible way would have been for siliya to hold a press brief to inform us and the world of developments if it was not only lungus personal deals discussed…….the way you are doing things at night or in secreate corners you will always be called corrupt thiefs….

  28. But why is it that only tongas-Jack Mwiimbu and Mcdonald Chipenzi are complaining about Kabila’s visit?can someone here explain why?the word DICTATOR is wrongly used on other leaders by upnd members when they fail to say a single word about their UPND DICTATOR HH!!!This is very amazing!!
    Anyway,dont worry Jack Mwiimbu and Chipenzi about Kabila because he will never stand in Zambia.let Congolese solve their internal problems.we all dont know what Kabila discussed with ECL and KK.maybe they told him to step down so that they can be lasting peace in Congo DR!!!so there is no issue to blame ECL or KK!!

  30. I can’t wait for the ” PETITION RENEWAL” exercise in southern province after they are done with the so called “CARD RENEWAL” exercise in the nine provinces. People in S.P will not accept any 2021 talkfom their savior, but want the promised swearing in of HH. Card renewal is not meat in S.P. jack mwimbu mast advise HH not to be like Manila by holding on to power in upnd when he knows his mandate endeded in 2010. I know his people will say he is not a Republican president, but it is true to say charity begins at home. Don’t wait to be at plot 1 to become a democrat. This is how Africa and the world have baked dictators under the illusion that they will be better when they become presidents.

  32. The problem with our new political order championed by UPND is speculation and lies a daily basis. Lungu as a good neighbour has to understand what is happening in Congo from Kabila. How is he to do this? But UPND starts to speculate and see deals. Diplomacy demands confidentiality in the process of negotiation until the ripe time. But our UPND friends want fake press conferènces which do not add anything to the problem. What is the point of holding press conference to share emptiness? We have had press conferences here where we have been told ECL and HH have agreed to dialogue but what do we hear from the two camps?

  33. Some one said zambians never were refuges in Congo , in the sixties refuges from zambia from northern province under Lenshina fled into congo as refugees runing from the zambian government after a big number of them were killed because theire religion.
    Some one could say they were being persecuted for for their beliefs ,and there are traces of the Lenshina cult members in congo even now.
