Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo says he has no regrets over his actions which led to his 30 day suspension from Parliament.

On Tuesday, Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Patrick Matibini ordered Mr. Lusambo to leave the House after the House resolved that he be suspended for 30 days for his inappropriate conduct within the precincts of Parliament last October when he slapped Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili.

But Lands Minister Jean Kapata survived a seven days suspension for unbefitting behaviour for pouring water on Mr Kambwili but the House, after an electronic voting, resolved to keep her in the House.

But in a Facebook post, Mr Lusambo said he does not regret his actions.

“With respect to my suspension from Parliament announced by the Honourable Mr Speaker, i wish to state that I have accepted the decision of the members. However, I wish to state that I have no regrets over my actions as they were driven by strong principles to defend the Republican Constitution and the Republican President,” he said.

“I also believe that there is nothing to reflect upon following my suspension because it is far better to die for a principle than to allow disgruntled, desperate and visionless politicians abuse the President through unsubstantiated allegations.”

He added, “As a Member of Parliament and Minister, I swore to protect the Constitution and took an oath and pledged my total loyalty to His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and I will continue to do so inside or outside the House. To the great people of Kabushi, I wish to reassure you that I will continue representing your interests as I have always done from the day I walked into Parliament. I will use the 30 days to reengage further with you as we push for development in our beloved constituency,” said Mr Lusambo.

But Mr Kambwili has asked President Lungu to fire Mr Lusambo because he is not apologetic.

“I am glad I have been vindicated and the pathological liar that saw it fit to turn the grounds of parliament into a boxing ring has been put to shame. President Lungu posterity and the morality you spoke highly about in parliament last week must drive you to fire this man, he is becoming more and more of an embarrassment as time goes on, it is frightening to know that this is the man who welcomes all foreign heads of states and various diplomatic dignitaries,” Mr Kambwili said.

He said Zambia and Kabushi deserve far much better.

Mr Kambwili hopes that the police can now step in and arrest this man for assault, something he denied to the whole nation with impunity.

“I am not surprised that the MMD die hard is unapologetic nor remorseful because that’s his nature. Honestly what do the young people of this country have to look up to in a man that can lie through his teeth irrespective of his high position in society?”

“What a shame, what a shame indeed. In a week where President Lungu has been given enough evidence of Bowman’s gross indispline that continues to have a negative impact on the already bleak legacy of President Lungu. The whole country strongly believes that the president will now surely terminate his services to at least save himself from this embarrassment,” Mr. Kambwili said.

    • This Bowman must be extremely primitive, how do you defend the constitution and the President by slapping somebody. Is this guy normal, but also these are the consequences of appointing people with low education. In other commonwealth countries, just these remarks which he has issued after the suspension will attract another 30 days suspension. He is saying I can do it again

    • “…..I wish to state that I have no regrets over my actions as they were driven by strong principles to defend the Republican Constitution and the Republican President,” and can you believe it, this thug was appointed to his position by Edgar Lungu…speaks volumes of the appointing authority

    • But how come this man is still a minister? Just how? President Lungu is sarounded by thugs and incompetent ministers and I think he is incompetent President as well. Sata or Kaunda should have fired this thug same day he slapped Kambwili.

    • This is why it is dangerous to have uneducated people in positions of power they have a narrow mind but a broad sense of stupidity. These are Lungu’s cheerleaders who will do anything no matter how foolish it may be.

    • Does this iidot know the meaning of the word regret? If he knew he was definitely going to regret robbing the people of Kabushi a 30 day representation and even for the stupid act of turning a respectable institution into a kabova station. Shame on the so called appointing authority. In fact even that ugliest prostitute who boasted as the baptizer deserves the same punishment.

  3. Someone admits to slapping someone and that person is still a minister, only in zambia where the president has no balls to sort out his juniors. SMH.

    • @Jay Jay
      What have you ever done in life to merit your despicable attitude towards our President Lungu. Not a day passes without you spewing invectives. Your putrid hatred and jaundiced views will only kill you. And ECL WILL win in 2021 because he is developing the country.
      God bless you.

    • Lusambo needs basic education on what it means to defend the constitution. It is not through violence no. This in itself speaks volumes about the calibre the president gives appoitments. The boy has no regret for his unparliamentary behaviour yet he is still being kept as minister. Only in Zambia can a president key quiet without shame maintaining people like Lusambo.

  6. Chief booty licker has outlived his usefulness. If this is what it takes to survive in this country, them we are in dire straits. How low can one sink so low just to look relevant and get favors from the vision less visionary a self confessed dullard? Lusambo, prepare a powerful legal team because you will need it when PF is kicked out of power. You are a shameless character devoid of any sense of entitlement and belonging. Its people like you that make our politics dirty and out of touch with reality.

  7. Hon.Bowman Lusambo did a right thing by beating provocative Kambwili which many of us PF lovers could do even now.So president Edgar Lungu should never fire his real soldiers like Lusambo who defend PF day and night unlike evil Kambwili who claims to be PF inside but he is NDC leader outside!!
    Kambwili should receive more beatings from us PF lovers because he is an enemy of Mighty PF!!
    CONGRATS ONCE MORE HON.LUSAMBO FOR BEATING KAMBWILI LAST YEAR!!

  8. Does it mean that taking the law in your own hands should be accepted by the government?
    Lusambo always shows his ignorance to the public, way back he clearly showed his ignorance on the land issues in Ndola not until the Vice President intervened and asked the council how the victims of the Mwanawasa stadium parking space obtained all the legal papers?
    Recently he went on to deny that no student at CBU was clobbered but on the other hand the media was busy publishing the CBU students battering by ZP.
    Now he is claiming to have been defending the constitution and the President by slapping Kambwili.

  10. If Lusambo had any principles as he claims, he would quit on moral grounds. No principle justifies that kind of behaviour. But we know that our political arena is full of unprincipled thugs, so this isn’t surprising. And Lusambo’s livelihood is sorely from this political position. so he can.never resign.
    In a civilized, principled country Lusambo would be fired. but again Zambia is neither principled nor civilized.
    As for Kambwili: I hope you learn the lesson well. When you are in power practice righteousness and justice. This is a lesson to politicians. though sadly they never learn.

  13. Which constitution were you defending? Don’t confuse words, you were simply defending your corruption. And as common sense implies the guilty are always defensive.
    These is no honour is slapping a senior citizen. If you have unspent energy join boxing.
    MP or what lusambo is a small cadre with violence embedded in his blood. Look back on how he man handled major kachingwe, was that defending the Constitution again?

  15. The bootlicker that he is, the guy is even unrepentant, claiming he did that in defence of the constitution and the president. That’s how low we can sink as a nation if defending the republican constitution or the republican president entails becoming violent. In civilised nations like America, president Trump may not be the favourite president in US history, critical press bash him left right and centre, Americans have called him all sorts of names and show him in many ways that they don’t like him. Yet Trump has his supporters, and definitely not his bootlickers, and no Trump supporter has turned violent on those opposed to Trump in defence of the American constitution. Even when the king is naked in public, some bootlickers would die fighting in defence of the king claiming the king…

  17. JB you have surely raised good points, who thought Dora or Lusambo will be entertained in the arena of PF?
    These two are not even worth to be MPs or Ministers but because of the weak governance policies in Zambia they are left scout free and they have continued abusing the Zambian policies, to them bootlicking and poor management of their ministries is normal as long as they are in good boots with the President. All they do is praise the President just to destruct his attention to their misdeeds.
    Dora almost put the nation to have poor maize harvest last season when the crops was attacked by army worms, thanks to the then Minister of livestock and fisheries and the President himself who intervened, whilst she was busy posting pictures of herself, boyfriend and Mike Tyson in the USA…

  18. The president should be ashamed to have such a person in that position. Uncivilized, uncultured thinking this is how to speak when put in a sensitive role. These are the people who are supposed to be dealing with foreigners using such coulourful language. This is why people go to university to learn Effective Communication and Organizational behaviour. There is a reason why people go to school!

  19. This mans attitudes and behaviour is that of a criminal and should not be any where near leading or representing any society. Lusambo has not shown no attributes of leadership. Such characters are ferocious and not fit for purpose. He needs to be fired and don’t expect he would resign.
    He is unproductive and distructive in nature. Emotional reseliance ZERO

  20. What arrogance! It can only come from someone who bootlicks the President so much he knows that Lungu will not fire him. Notice how he wants to bring in the president into his illegal actions?
    “I have no regrets over my actions as they were driven by strong principles to defend the Republican Constitution and the Republican President,”
    Lungu looks at this and says ithis fool will defend me anytime. Let me keep him close
