Chiefs come out in Support of President Lungu after opposition allege that he is Malawian

Headlines Chiefs come out in Support of President Lungu after opposition allege that...

President Edgar Lungu

Four Nsenga Chiefs of Petauke District in Eastern Province have strongly defended the originality of President Edgar Lungu, contrary to assertions by sections of society that the Republican President is a foreigner.

The Traditional leaders namely Senior Chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga Speaking people, along with Chiefs Mumbi, Nyamphande and Chieftainess Nyanje, have described as false and insulting continued assertions mainly by some opposition politicians that President Edgar Lungu is not a Zambian but a Malawian.

People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti is for instance among individuals who have incessantly charged that President Edgar Lungu is not a Zambian but a Malawian from the border near Chief Kambombo of Chama.

However Senior Chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga Speaking people said they are shocked that former government leaders can sink so low to fabricate and perpetuate falsehoods concerning President Lungu’s parentage and nationality.

Speaking in an interview at his Palace in Petauke District, yesterday, Senior Chief Kalindawalo who was flanked by the chiefs, declared that President Lungu is a Zambian from Mukwama Village , which is about 20 km north of Petauke Boma.

“The Head of State comes from within Kalindawalo, both parents, from the Father’s side comes from Headman Mukwama and on the mother’s side he’s coming from Simambumbu. The other family is at Chiputula village. He is well settled in Kalindawalo”, said Snr Chief Kalindawalo.

The senior chief further disclosed that President Lungu’s roots are entrenched in the lineage of the headmanship of Mukwama Village.

The traditional leader said President Lungu is not just a subject but a national asset who should be supported by all well-meaning and peace loving Zambians to govern the country and realise his development agenda for the country.

And Chief Mumbi also of Petauke District added that President Lungu’s roots are inherently and deeply planted in Chief Kalindawalo’s area and that the Nsenga people are humbly proud to have him as Head of State.

He challenged people doubting President Lungu’s roots to immediately cease their smearing campaign on the president’s lineage and citizenship.

And Chieftainess Nyanje also said told ZANIS at her palace she was shocked to hear reports that her “ own son “ was being labelled a foreigner.

Chief Nyamphande also said it is unfortunate that politicians of nowadays, in an apparent reference to UPP leader Mulongoti , are not pragmatic and focus on trivialities of character assassination instead of providing alternatives to advance the country’s socio-economic development.

“The ( ongoing ) debate around President Lungu’s origins demonstrates failure by the opposition to deal with real issues in the country, “ he said.

He has challenged any politician and Zambian citizen and other interested parties to come to Petauke District and ascertain the truth.

“If someone wanted to find out about the President’s origins, they would have without having to go to great lengths to spread innuendo which has no bearing on reality”, said Chief Nyamphande.

The traditional leaders and President Lungu’s kinsmen said they are baffled that this matter has resurfaced again three years after it first cropped up.

They explained that Former Vice President Dr Guy Scott, who was then acting as President after the death of President Michael Sata, sent State agents to verify Mr Lungu’s parentage.

And Elders from the Nsenga Royal Establishment ( ENRE ) expressed disappointment that people branding the Head of State a foreigner have served in government before and are reported to be in-laws from the past.

Elder Phillip Daka , who served as permanent secretary to Prime Minister Malimba Masheke, Vice Presidents Patrick Mwanawasa, Brigadier General Godfrey Miyanda and Lt General Christon Tembo said he is amazed at Zambian politician’s penchant for smearing other people’s roots.

Mr. Daka in an interview with ZANIS regretted that Zambian politicians have developed a syndrome of tainting the Parentage of serving Heads of State.

“It amazes me because it’s a syndrome, we were talking the same thing doubting Kaunda, we talked the same thing about Chiluba, we were talking about Mwanawasa coming from a parent from Malawi, why this syndrome?” wondered the retired permanent secretary.

His colleagues Maziko Banda and Masiye Madengo collectively said people smearing President Lungu’s parentage are ” failed politicians looking for illegitimate pathways to State House.”

Mr. Banda, a war veteran said Zambians should not give an hear to such politicians because they are bent on inflaming the country through divisive statements.

And speaking from Mukwama village, President Lungu’s cousin Joyce Miliya Zulu said President Edgar Lungu’s father, Padule Lungu was born in Mukwama village while his mother Zanalesi Zulu was born in Simambumbu village in Petauke District.

She further explained that President Lungu’s Grandfather Saili Chilekwa Lungu and Grandmother Sinala Lungu were also born in Mukwama village.

Pearson Banda who is Headman Mukwama said President Lungu’s father Padule Lungu and Grandfather Saili Chilekwa Lungu are buried in Mukwama village and he is ready to take anyone to see their graves.

And it was learnt by ZANIS that Ms. Mainess Lungu who is President Lungu’s aunt resides in Mukwama Village, is the only surviving sibling of President Lungu’s Father .

Others include President Lungu’s cousins and Bernard Lungu who were sired by Betterman Lungu, the younger brother to President Lungu’s father.

    • Is simple, Shaw us EL`s dad, If he is dead his crave, Then shaw us his dad`s vellege and his relatives. Then shaw us his mum and the vellege where she comes from.

    • The issue arises from the Constitutional Provision. Constitutional provisions are serious issues and not frivolous.

      The Chiefs should just assist the Investigator General with the evidence instead of shouting via the press. They will of course be handsomely rewarded from the top office.

      After all half of Easterners are historically runaways from Shaka Zulu from South Africa.

    • Lungu must be the weakest leader zambian has ever had,, I have never seen or heard this guy defend himself, every time people have to defend him ,,kaizer zulu,cadres , mumbi phiri,,,etc
      And why was lungu trying to do away with chiefs and tribes,,, now he is running back to chiefs and tribes to defend him,,,, lungu drink properly my friend

    • The trouble with these allegations are that they have no substance.

      It’s all mere facade

      There were accusation towards Kaunda, Chiluba, Mwanawasa, Band, Sata …. see the pattern ?

      Ignore these allegation with every fibre of your being.

      This type of news excites the less elite. Those who comprehension is compromised.

      This is a test – what side are you on ?

      Thanks

      BB2014,2016

    • @nine chale
      But why would one want to do away with tribes only to run back to tribe in his own defence, what a stup!d thing to do,, don’t you think?

    • I don’t believe it was his intention to do away with tribes. The issue is complex and must be analysed in it’s context. In the matter at hand, however, it is the same old allegation that previous presidents have also faced and it is the chiefs that have come to his defence – not the president.

    • @Ndobo, what is shocking me is that no one, including himself Edgar say anything about his brothers or sisters. I remember when Chiluba’s sister came by bus from Musangu village to scream at ZNBC defending her brother, and she was not sentenced to 3 months. She threatened that all village was coming to Lusaka, until they said no no no no Kafupi was Zambian. Another man come out to claim he was Kafupi father of Chiluba.
      Good job from people from Petauke, including Dora Siliiya’s father to prove son-of-bittch Mulongoti that he is being to annoying.

      And what is Dalitso Lungu doing, cowards. Come out, make noise, go to Mulongoti and impregnate his daughter.

    • So Lungu is in line to become a headman…why can’t he vacate state house and become headman mukwama. I think he can do a good job in the village

    • How many Chiefs can come and defend me if anybody claimed I was not Zambian? How much was in those brown envelopes ? Why not let the Public Protector do his/her job? Kafupi all of a sudden came to have a father who did not know his tribe and his mother’s name. How will Lungu’s own be different?

    • EVEN THEN THERE IS NO ZAMBIAN WHO IS TRULY A ZAMBIAN. EG, THE BEMBAS AND LOZIS COME FROM THE CONGO DRIRECTION. THE BEMBA PEOPLE CAME THROUGH CONGO FROM SUDAN IN SEARCH OF GRAZING LAND AND AFTER DISPUTES OR DISAGREEMENTS WITH THE LEFT BEHIND GROUP. THE SO CALLED NGONIS RAN AWAY FROM SHAKA ZULU WHO WAS KILLING AND CHASING AWAY FEEBLE MEMBERS OF THE ZULUS. PROBABLY THE FIRST BANTU PEOPLE TO SETTLE IN ZAMBIA- THE TONGAS WERE ALSO CHASED FROM ZIMBABWE TO COME AND SETTLE IN THE COUNTRY NOW CALLED ZAMBIA. THE FACT THEY NEVER LOST ALL THEIR ANIMALS THROUGH TSETSE FLIES OR DISEASES MEANS THAT THEY NEVER TRAVELLED A LONG DISTANCE FROM WHERE THEY CAME- WHICH IS ZIMBABWE. OTHER GROUPS CAME FROM MOZAMBIQUE, ANGOLA, NAMIBIA AND TANZANIA. THE STORY OF, THIS OR THAT PRESIDENT IS AS BORING AND OLD AS…

    • …THE STORY OF, THIS OR THAT PRESIDENT IS AS BORING AND OLD AS ZAMBIA ITSELF. BEMBAS ARE EVEN THE MOST UNFORTUNATE WITH THIS STORY. EVERY BEMBA WHO IS GOING TO RULE ZAMBIA WILL EVER COME FROM CONGO. GUYS GET ON WITH REALITY. WINNING PRESIDENCY IS THROUGH A BALLOT BOX NOT FINGER-POINTING OR PETITIONS.

    • @1.1 show us your father. You’ve tried everything to stop him but you’ve failed. Just work hard at the ballot box. At least I knew his grandfather who was my great uncle’s neighbor.

    • He claims he was born at Ndola Central Hospital which is a whites-only hospital at the time.
      Mulongoti is 1st cousin to Lungu’s 1st wife, Tasila’s real mother. He’s not just saying from without.

      Malawians are dictators by nature. Look at Kamuzu Banda, KK & Lungu himself.

    • OKAY OKAY OKAY. YOU GUYS ARE NUTS. DOES THIS MEAN ECL IS THE STRONGEST CONTENDER 2021 POLLS? COME ON GUYS WE CAN DO BETTER.
      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Don’t you get it? We were all scampering from battlefields, anger-stricken and dethroned areas and places in the subregion of Africa no wonder every political party leader deemed strong is subject to origin scrutiny. Please debate policy. Who has the best policy? Already double h thinks PF is implementing the UPNDEAD manifesto. He thinks his ideas are being put to action before he ever makes it to the PLOT. Scary moments for double h.

    • Bantu. Go to Petauke to that village and they will show you. The people in the village have challenged you to go there so they show you the graves. What’s wrong with you.

  1. When Kak and UNIP alleged that Kapwepwe was after all Mwakapwepwe a mwachusa from Tanganyika, Senior Chief Nkula referred to them as lunatics. This lunacy still exists after so many years! It shows how backward Mike Mulongoti and his colleagues are

    • Mulongoti is Congolese from Sakania. His father was shuttling between Chiwala and Sakania. Let him deny it.

  2. Politics ,politics ,politics and electioneering issues 24/7 .Tis the reason why Zambia never develops cuz we settle for personalities rather than focus on issues.

    • @Enka who said Zambia never develop? If your family is not developed is not because of politics.
      What issues you want to discuss, soccer of Wedson Nyerenda?
      Change topic kanshi nga naukwata ifyakulanda.

  3. Thankx for clearing our President now let’s hear about hh whose roots are not known. Where are his parents, or any relative.
    Others say mwana wamufyani is it true?

    • THEY HAVE NOT CLEARED HIM. HE FERRIED THEM FROM PETAUKE TO PARADE THEM ON TV FOR MONEY. THESE CHIEFS ARE TRAITORS. THEY HAVE ACTUALLY COMPLICATED MATTERS FOR HIM, THEY HAVE RAISED MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS. AT ONE TIME CHIEF KAZEMBE OF LUAPULA CLAIMED THAT MOSES KATUMBI WAS HIS RELATIVE. TODAY KATUMBI IS AN ASPIRING PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN CONGO. HIS MOTHER COMES FROM KASHOBWE IN CONGO, WHEN HE WAS GOVERNOR OF KATANGA PROVINCE, HE DEVELOPED KASHOBWE AND BUILT AN ULTRA MODERN HOSPITAL THERE AND NOT IN MWENSE. CHIEF MADE THE CLAIMS FOR MONEY.

    • And where are yours? Try to do a research of your roots. You will be surprised to find that the man you have believed to be your father is actually not your father

    • Wrong Katumbi’s mother is from Kashiba, Mwense. He’s of mixed Congolese and European on his father’s side. His family did a lot of business in Kasenga a mining town in Belgian Congo.

    • IF INDEED, AS YOU FALSELY CLAIM, KATUMBI’S MOTHER CAME FROM CHIEF KASHIBA, WHICH SIDE MAKES HIM CONGOLESE SINCE HIS FATHER IS WHITE? HIS MOTHER ZAMBIAN AND HIS FATHER ITALIAN WHITE, WHAT MAKES HIM CONGOLESE?

    • In all this, how come the president himself never came out and corrected the accusations against him to say where he came from? also how do four chiefs say he is from there, do they know all their subjects from the other chiefdoms?

    • It’s up the Congolese to decide. Obama has a Kenyan father but because of his mother’s heritage and the fact that he was born in USA he was allowed to stand for president. For your information this nonsense of who comes from where and who’s supposed stand came about because FTJ feared that if KK stood in 1996 he might win because of the suffering we suffered under MMD.

  4. This is their favorite story when haters run out of issues. It is their “plan B” just in case impeachment bounces.. and it is going to bounce big time.

  5. WE NEED TO JUST GROW UP. I ALSO DONT UNDERSTAND POLITICIANS OF TODAY. ONE MORNING THEY SEEMS TO BE TALKING SENSE AND JUST THE FOLLOWING MORNING COMPLETELY OFF TARGET. THIS IS MY COUNTRY CALLED ZAMBIA.
    IT SEEMS IN 2018 POLITICIANS HAVE COMPLETELY RUN OUT OF IDEAS. I NEED A ROAD TO BE WORKED ON. MY VEHICLES ARE GETTING DAMAGED EVERY DAY.
    DEBATE REAL ISSUES IN PARLIAMENT AND LOBBY FOR FUNDS TO IMPROVE YOUR AREAS .
    DONT MAKE YOUR PRESIDENTS SMALL gods.

    • There are things that affect us such as rental withholding tax, borehole tax, bad roads, but here we’re our MPs don’t seem to care about all these. Their main interest is to put HH in the state house. No MP has bothered to introduce a bill that really affects the people.

  6. I don’t support Lungu but its a waste of time accusing Presidents of belonging to another country. How many Presidents have we accused of this? And how many times have we succeeded? If we want to remove Lungu lets focus on what he isn’t doing and there is plenty.
    You must all know that artificial Zambia being in the centre of Southern Africa will have nationals coming from all its surrounding artificial countries. Lets stop this nonsense

  7. I am a Malawian, but I am very disappointed with Zambian politics. How dare a person who aspires to become a first citizen of Republic of Zambia come so low with such stupidity?
    Africans! Africans! Africans!!!

  8. Lungu can’t defend himself and put the matter to rest, as US president Barack Obama took it upon himself to put the matter to rest against Trumps incessant attacks. No members of Congress came to his defense but as Chiluba a step sister and an aunt came forth! Doesn’t Lungu have an NRC to show? I hope it does tally with what the chiefs say than mentioning some city on the Copperbelt where a number of DRC illegals have them. Let Lungu respond to what Mulongoti has implicated in the Tasila Lungu mother’s family settlement matter and if Lungu agrees that Mulongoti is Tasila’s maternal uncle!

    I understand why Dr Nyerere did away with this chieftaincy institution, its dangerous when ravaged by poverty!

    • So, you want Lungu to produce a birth certificate or NRC when at the time he was born there were no birth certificates NRCs for Africans?

  9. BUT WHERE ARE INVESTIGATIVE JOURNOULISTS, GUYS WHO CAN GO AND INTERVIEW/TALK TO THE VILLAGES AND VILLAGERS? WHERE ARE THEY?

    • Mmembe has entered the political scene and I assume he has done a lot of research and is coming with ground breaking stories. Let’s wait for his first interview.

    • GUY SCOTT INDEED SENT AN OP OFFICER TO PETAUKE TO INVESTIGATE LUNGU’S ORIGIN AND IT WAS ESTABLISHED THAT LUNGU WAS INDEED MALAWIAN. THIS OFFICER WAS DISMISSED WHEN LUNGU BECAME PRESIDENT THEN LATER RE-INSTATED IN FEAR OF HIM SPILLING THE BEANS. HE IS CURRENTLY SERVING IN FOREIGN SERVICE.

  10. Muzambia wa sa sa, please know your elementary history. Only about a quarter of Easterners, the Ngoni, can be said to have their roots from Shaka’s wars in Kwazulu; having invaded and occupied the lands belonging to the Chewa-Nsenga peoples, from around 1835 when they (the Ngoni) arrived. The Chewa- Nsenga and Senga-Tumbuka peoples are indigenous to Eastern Province, having settled in the area stretching from, roughly, Lake Malawi in the East to the Luangwa River in the West, well before the 13th/14th centuries AD. Wake up and get your facts right!!!

  11. WHY SO MANY CHIEFS HAVE COME OUT TO DEFEND LUNGU WITHOUT SAYING WHERE HE WAS BORN. IT IS CLAIMED THAT LUNGU WAS BORN IN 1956 IN NDOLA CENTRAL HOSPITAL WHICH WAS AT THE TIME FOR WHITES ONLY. AT ONE TIME SOMEONE WAS ASKED TO MAKE A STATEMENT THAT LUNGU WAS LAMBA FROM CHILESE VILLAGE IN CHIEF MUSHILI AREA. WHY HAS IT TAKEN SO LONG FOR THE CHIEFS TO COME OUT IN DEFENCE OF LUNGU AND THEY HAVE COME OUT AT THE SAME TIME. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. THIS SONG HAS BEEN HEARD BEFORE. CHIEF KAZEMBEOF LUAPULA DEFENDED MOSES KATUMBI. HE CLAIMED HIM TO BE A ZAMBIAN NATIONAL AND HIS RELATIVE. YET KATUMBI COMES FROM KASHOBWE IN CONGO AND TODAY KATUMBI IS AN ASPIRING PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN CONGO. IT NOT ALSO THE FIRST TIME THAT SOME PEOPLE WHO CLAIMED TO BE FROM EASTERN PROVINCE TURNED OUT TO BE MALAWIAN…

    • Munsha, you seem to be very knowledgeable about where the leaders were born and who their parents were. Then, tell us who Hakainde’s father was and who are Hakainde’s brothers and sisters. The chiefs from Petauke told you the village Edgar come from but if you tell us that is Mulongoti is right about Edgar been Malawian then which village and chiefdom does he come from in Malawi. As for Katumbi, Katumbi’s mother was related to the Mwata. The Mwata’s chiefdom spans the Congolese and Zambian border. He reigns over chiefs both in Zambia and Congo and he has family in both countries as is the case with most people from border towns. The borders we have in Africa are artificial created by Europeans for their own selfish needs.

    • THEY HAVE NOT. THEY HAVE RAISED MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS. THESE CHIEFS ARE TRAITORS AND UNPATRIOTIC.

  12. WHY IN THE FIRST INSTANCE BRING THE CHIEFS FROM THEIR PALACES TO PARADE THEM ON TV IN LUSAKA? IT ALL GOES TO SHOW THAT THEY WERE PAID TO SAY WHAT THEY HAVE SAID. HOW DID THE CHIEFS GOT TO KNOW HIM WHEN HE WAS BORN AND GREW UP ON THE COPPERBELT? AT WHAT STAGE DID THEY ALL KNOW HIM. THEY ARE LYING AND BETRAYING THE COUNTRY. THE CHIEFS ARE TRAITORS. THIS IS LACK OF PATRIOTISM. ZAMBIANS STAND UP AND DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY. IT IS UNDER SIEGE.

    • The kind of greed among traditional leaders is amazing and sort of runs in the blood from generation to generation. These are the same chaps who used to sell their own subjects or raid neighboring tribes for slaves. What a shameless lot.

  13. The Chiefs have clarified the matter because the President hails from an area under their jurisdiction.
    Please do not insult our Chiefs.

  14. Many of Zambians have no doubts about ECL’s nationality.
    If anything,we must ask about HH because nobody has seen or heard anything about Kainde’s father,mother,brother or sister.Kainde cannot even speak any local language apart from tonga and English-KAINDE IS A PURE FOREIGNER AND NOT PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU!!
    Anyway,we know why the fuss-its because our opposition leaders are dead scared of facing ECL in 2021!!IFINTU NI LUNGU-2021!!!

    • Jumas Sinkolongo: Just express your doubts and end there. Do you have a quarrel with Makebi Zulu’s complexion also? Now that is a real problem. We Africans should be the last people to engage in talk of how light or dark someone is and then take issue with that because of how much we have suffered as a result of such beliefs. We certainly have reason to doubt the claims of chiefs in certain instances because of how they fight over succession in their own extended families. Have the Nsenga chiefs been bought? I don’t know but all of what they have said can be double-checked.

  15. These chiefs are liars, they have been corrupted with money to give false information. By now we are all very much live of the PF and its corruption tactics. Where were these chiefs before ? How many homes has Edgar Lungu ? Iyoo bakateka bafuma ku Chama, the other baku Katete, lelo ati baku Petauke, ubufi bweka bweka. That guy is a Malawian and don’ t think you chiefs who have been bought by the Patriotic Front can hoodwink us, NO. Edgar Lungu is a foreigner, a Malawian for that matter, he originates from between Chitipa and Mzuzu. Just wait, we shall expose more of these foreigners who have come to destroy Zambia in the near future. They preach tribalism so they can divide Zambia nga cilya icafita sana ati Makebi Zulu, katwishi nga malasha cisuba pa mubili waciko.

  16. some say he was born in kitwe others claim in petauke. eastern province?
    which is which?
    i have my doubts now!

  17. People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti is mentally defective. Mr. Mulongoti opts to thrive on the origin of ECL when he was silent at the time Guy Scott of Scottish parents was Republican President in Zambia. What is Mulongoti’s views on GBM’s alleged South African links , Michael Sata’s alleged Tanzanian parents, Sylvia Masebo’s alleged Zimbabwean origin, FTJ Chiluba’s alleged Congolese father, Levy Mwanawasa’s alleged Malawian father, Vernon Mwaanga’s known Zimbawean accent? The truth is that whoever was resident of Northern Rhodesia as at 24hrs on 23rd October 1964 qualified as Zambian Citizens. Many Zambians have also gained similar foreign citizenship in South Africa and Zimbabwe. Mulongoti must STOP THE ROTTEN brand of politics.

  18. Show us the grasves, then DNA tests. ECL’s parents may actually be lying in unmarked graves in Kitwe.

  19. OK. There is dispute. Take it to court so that a DNA can be ordered on who ever is in those graves to prove the chief’s allegations.

  20. Talk is cheap.
    Where is documentary evidence?
    Nothing more, nothing else. Exactly as Statutory provisions require [Birth Certificate and Education Certificate(s)].
    Why is difficult to avail the same?

    • Young puppy, my political history?
      Let me enlighten you as much it is waste of time.
      I was born free man in a free country where rule of law is neither questioned nor modified by the executive to suit his/her personal need.
      Therefore, you who are borne slave to one party system, live as a slave to corrupt lawless system where the head of executive cannot avail his/her Birth Certificate and education certificate as mandated by law of the land, have courage to question my political history?
      Sometime you need to understand the comments before making crapping contribution through that large sh!thole of yours.
      Did you mongrel puppy b!tch understand what I am saying?

  21. If a Zambian president or presidential candidate has Malawian or other heritage, it’s better to disclose this. I accept that a Zambian with Malawian heritage can be president in Zambia, as KK has been, but this heritage ought to be disclosed or answers provided if questions get asked. Ideally the answers should come from the candidate or the president. Chiefs can come in a supporting role.

  22. Zambia is a country of migrants except the tongas who are believed to be descendants of koikois (bushmen)And did u that HH was fathered by late mazoka and the surname belongs to the mother coz mazoka refused for simple reason coz he was still in school but after finishing he started sponsoring him even coercing him into Anglo American mines

  23. Hi! My name is Zizwa Lungu from Mabiri in Mzimba district of Malawi which borders Petauke.
    It’s true Edgar is from my home village as narrated by my grandmother but his parents took him to Zambia when he was a little one.
    So he is Malawian by birth and Zambian through long stay

  24. Bwembya Mutale: Such insulting language has no place here if you want a sober debate. Herein lies Zambia’s problem. People want to claim enlightenment and membership of the intelligentsia but do not want to behave as an intelligentsia should. You can hate HH all you want and no one will legislate against that but do not insult him. In countries such as the UK and South Africa, people have been sent to jail for racist talk and abuse and this is a click of a computer mouse away if you want evidence. Anyway , those are serious jurisdictions where law enforcement supports the kind of society they want to build and live in.

  25. Unless somebody comes up with evidence to the contrary, the man is a Zambian. He attended Zambian schools, underwent the compulsory ZNS military training, was elected MP…nobody raised an eyebrow. Please take him on on other things, if found wanting and not this citizenship rubbish.

  26. What about those that were born in Northern Rhodesia, like Mulongoti himself. Is he a Zambian or what?? You cant change your place/country of birth meaning Mulongoti has no country lol

  27. Absolutely insane. How can 4 chiefs come out to defend the birthplace of one individual as if he was born in 4 chief-doms?This whole scene is that of that coming out from individuals after being coached on what to say as a group. They are immature and not worth the titles they hold. Only one chief should have spoken out long ago instead of speaking out at this time when Lungu is busy throttling any other person seen as a hindrance to his sick dream of staying on in power. We are fed up of his incompetence and kleptomania.

    • I for instance can be supported by Chiefs Matanda, Chimese, Chisunka and Mulundu because I have connections with all these chiefdoms. In fact I can even go as far as Chief Mwewa of Samfya. My parents and their parents have relatives in all these areas. Unless your family is so nucleus you’re bound to have relatives in more than one village.

  28. Musha Kimbala 5.1, for sure you are a supporter of an opposition party. The Nsenga chiefs met at His Royal Highness palace at Kalindawalo. Have your facts correct. His Excellency ECL is Nsenga period! Stop making allegations in things you don’t know. We know his village we the people. You looser.

    • CLAIMS ARE CLAIMS. THEY CANNOT DEFEAT THE TRUTH. HE IS FROM MALAWI. DOES HE BELONG TO SO MANY CHIEFDOMS? WE WELCOME THESE FALSE CLAIMS BECAUSE THEY ARE HELPING TO VINDICATE THOSE WHO ARE SAYING THAT HE IS MALAWIAN. AT THE RIGHT TIME, THE TRUTH WILL TRIUMPH. LIKE I SAID ABOVE, SIMILAR CLAIMS WERE MADE ABOUT KATUMBI BY MWATA KAZEMBE. WHY NONE OF LUNGU’S RELATIVES HAS COME OUT TO DEFEND HIM? WHY CHIEFS? WAS HE BORN ALONE? HE HAS NO BROTHERS, NO SISTERS, NO COUSINS, NO NEPHEWS, NO NIECES AND NO OTHER RELATIVES? DON’T TRY TO COMPLECATE MATTERS FOR HIM. THE MORE YOU TALK, THE MORE YOU EXPOSE HIM. THE FACT THAT THE CHIEFS WERE GATHERED AT ONE PALACE AND ZNBC WAS SENT TO RECORD THEM GOES TO SHOW THE ALL THING WAS ORGANISED. IT IS CLEAR THAT CHIEFS WERE TOLD WHAT TO SAY. WHY WERE MUVI TV AND…

  29. Indeed the truth will prevail. President Lungu is Nsenga .
    Keep on hallucinating. By the way where do you Munsha Kimbala come from?let me have your chief and village? I want to check you out. You can be my relative from Tanzania or Angola. Making you and me foreigners and living in Zambia illegally. Since you seem to know everything. Indeed the truth will set you free. Leave ECL alone.

  30. Iwe Kavuluvulu shut up, nani ulefwaya ukubepa, Lungu waku Malawi iwe, mutulatula fye, that’ s why he wants to divide the country through tribalism. Limbi naiwe wine uli mutulatula mwafuma kumo kwine, eimwe muletushupa imwe bena fyalo, you support him (Lungu) to keep your stay here. Wishibe, nomba line tuli nokumwimina, takamipasa, nabanobe utuma ministers/ MP tuntu twaishiba utulebomba illegally muno calo cesu. Ati Kavuluvulu, nomba linefye mukalapila imwe.

  31. The defence of president Edgar Lungu not being a Malawian can not be defended by chiefs from Petauke region. Authenticity of where one hails from can be verified immediately from parentage at birth. Edgar Lungu should be verifiable at that stage. That should be followed by where his parents came from and that will lead to one chiefdom within Zambia or outside Zambia. A hoard of chiefs coming to the media claiming they know Edigar Lungu and his parentage naming dead people and ready to show their graves is being economical with truth. Lungu can not hail from three chiefdom areas. That in itself sends a message that something is a miss in all this narrative. Father, mother, brother(s) or sister(s), uncles, cousins sould be seen and NOT only heard. The clog still sticks that Edgar Lungu may…

  32. In any case, Malawi is part of Zambia. We speak the same language and share traditional Eastern Chieftainship. Malawi is just a small land mass cut off from Zambia by Colonialists. April Fool ? The idea that this would matter is an agenda to remove the Peoples’ Choice before 2021 to make it easier for certain already defeated hopefuls.
