I will not discuss the debate of Antonio Mwanza and Cornelius Mweetwa, sufice to say the two gentlemen debated well and the moderator did a good job, Prime TV “Oxygen of Democracy” program.

My mind today is on Fred M’membe and Wynter Kabimba, I don’t know what to make out of Wynter’s revelations, that Fred M’membe is gay and once wanted made sexual advances on him a hotel room when they traveled out of Zambia.

Honestly, I am dumbfounded, on one part I feel sorry for Fred M’membe, such revelations can have far reaching consequences on the person. Imagine how Fred M’membe’s family, wife and children are feeling hearing this being discussed in public.

On the other hand, I have respect for Wynter Kabimba as a very intelligent man, a lawyer and a politician. He may not have the charisma to woo people to his side, but he is not a person I would simply dismiss, when he makes such revelations.

Therefore, his allegations cannot be simply dismissed as mere political malice against Fred M’membe. I strongly believe that Kabimba knows what he is talking about otherwise he would not trend that route knowing how emotional and vengeful Fred M’membe is.

Looking at this case from the political point of view, I think Fred M’membe’s political test, has come too soon to survive harsh storms and I think he is dead and buried. I doubt if he will rise from these very injurious blows from his once close comrade.

Fred M’membe cannot keep on being silent, he has to come out and tell the nation whether indeed is he has a different sexual orientation or not. Is Wynter Kabimba telling the truth or not? This questions can only be given by Fred, not anybody else.

We can’t assume that Fred M’membe is not gay, just because he has a wife and children, many other gay people have wives and children. Similarly, quoting Bible passages, does not automatically mean one is a Christian.

What is the Socialist Party policy on sexual orientation and Zambia as a Christian Nation? Is Fred M’membe an Atheist? I am sure Zambians would appreciate to hear from this Socialist party 2021 Presidential Candidate.

TAYALI – NI TOUCH AND GO!

EEP – A NATION IS PEOPLE!

2021 IS OUR TIME – WAPYA BAISA!

    • To be fair leave Mmembe with his personal circumstances alone. Let him be on the political arena to fulfil his mission. We really should not have an issue with one’s personal inclinations, that’s thier business. Let him not be judged by any of this. Kabimba has been petty and desperate on this.

    • Tayali, when Kabimba insulted you ati “toombarnoko”, did we ask your mother to prove it?
      You short minded like your body.

    • Whynter makes himself look childish, why didn’t you tell us when this happened?? WHY NOW?? Whynter attacks anyone who comes out as better than him. We are a Christian nation as we claim therefore leaders should have some moral values on what language to use. Come on. Membe helped Whynter and even Sata. Whether GAY or not We don’t CARE!! We want a person who can save Zambians with Integrity and a clear vision to improve lives of our People and grow our Economy. Who cares who does who that’s his personal nonsense..

    • STRAIGHT, BISEXUAL, GAY, LESBIAN, TRANSGENDER AND LGBTQ ARE THE TERMS USED IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD. SADLY BEING LEGITIMIZED IN OTHER NATIONS (WESTERN COUNTRIES ) BUT BY AND LARGE A TABOO IN OUR LAND, ZAMBIA.
      :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
      So don’t get twisted the Q in LGBTQ could denote either ‘questioning’ or ‘queer,’
      Queer means that you are one of those letters (LGBT), but you could be all of those letters and not knowing is OK. So You may also hear the terms “Queer Community” or “Rainbow Community” used to describe LGBTQ+ people. Mr. Tayali in line with my argument what does RAINBOW PARTY means? I guess Wynter needs to rebrand his party.

    • People often use LGBTQ to mean all of the communities included in the “LGBTTTQQIAA”:
      Lesbian
      Gay
      Bisexual
      Transgender
      Transsexual
      Two-spirited
      Queer
      Questioning
      Intersex
      Asexual
      Ally
      So M’membe could be bisexual or questioning. But who named the RAINBOW PARTY? Was it Wynter or M’membe?

    • Can’t Tayali also tell us if he is a political prostitute judging by how he shifts from supporting one political party to another to make a living.

    • I sincerely reckon Analyser to be offside and ultra-politic but very spiritual! Zambia is CONSTITUTIONALLY a Christian Nation save for tolerances of other ‘religions’. This ought to very clear in the minds of all bloggers! For avoidance of doubt; let it be known that the ‘…act of proposing same sex preferences…. and or acting as homosexual…is a crime under the laws of Zambia’

      Therefore, if Fred (a Lawyer) is found wanting and convicted of such a crime, on or before 2021; his candidature, the Socialist Party, will be thrown into jeopardy!

      IT’S thus incumbent on this comrade and commandate to come clean on this simple but damaging matter ASAP. No amount of name calling on Wynter will save this guy off the political gilotin!!!

  2. I RESPECT MMEMBE TOO …. WE CANNOT TALK ABOUT PRESS FREEDOM IN THIS COUNTRY WITHOUT MENTIONING HIM…..WHAT ABOUT DEMOCRACY …MMEMBE IS A MAN …

    • If truly he, Fred is gay like people initially alleged against Elias Chipimo, then he must just explain himself

  3. I fear these “blows” have already sent his political career to the canvass. Will he beat the eight count??? Hmmm….I am afraid even if he recovers and beats the count, he won’t last the whole fight. Fred has made some fatal career choices-turning his newspaper political and coming out to join the politics.

  4. I don’t normally agree with Chilufya Tayali because he speaks for the sugar daddy that pays him the most, but on this one he is right. Why cant Mmembe just comes out of the closet and state his like for other men. It will kill politically but he will at least be able to live the Gay life else where. The UK is a very tolerant society and if you state you are gay and come from a country like Zambia where homosexuality is illegal, the UK government will not only give you permanent residence they will give you a house and benefits to surviving on while you look for a job, you will be treated as persecuted person.

  5. AND WHAT IS WORSE, M’MEMBE DOES NOT EVEN HAVE THE ORATORY CHARISMA THAT HE PORTRAYS IN HIS WRITING.

    • Aweee, Fred must just tell us, he is presidential candidate kabili. NEVER mind the News Diggers, tulefya ukwishiba. I am sure the Mazoka family (HH included) would want to know the truth from Fredson

  7. Mmembe’s sexual orientation and his religious beliefs are none of our business. I don’t like his business or journalistic ethics, but the truthfulness of these allegations is immaterial and must be kept separate.

    • On the contrary, it is everything more our business than none. It explains more on people state of minds. M’membe is aspiring to rule Zambia. We want straight people to rule over us, over this Christian country.

    • Christian country, my foot! Why don’t you ask every politician if they abide by all things the holy book is against, like being a thief, adulterous, having other gods (like using ng’angas), lying, etc. There are no lesser evils than others even though the ten commandments are cardinal.

    • Same sex transactions are illegal in Zambia and one can spend 14 years in jail. Are you suggesting a self confessing law breaker is not a problem to you?

    • I’m catholic but I don’t like calling any country Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Shinto or Buddhist. Let people believe in what they want. Don’t force people into something they don’t like. If I want to share the word with someone and they don’t want I just leave them alone and move to the next person.

  8. Fredrick Mumembe now that you have entered the political ring, you should expect blows or punches thrown at you from the general public. Unlike the boxing ring, this one has no referee to stop punches aimed below your belt. Mud will also be thrown at you. The defunct Post Newspaper which Mmembe headed was vicious so towards Rupiah Banda and HH. Southern Province was renamed Bantustan by the Post. You have cruelty of a snake ( Lunya lwa noha). I know you do not believe in God and quoting from the Bible is therefore useless, but will quote anyway “ Do to others as you would have them do to you”. I don’t normally like reading Tayali’s articles because they sound childish to me but it looks like he has come of age.

  9. Mmembe should have remained an armchair critic. He does that better than being a foot soldier on the political battlefield. While Tayali’s rantings may sound inconsequential to some bloggers, the Zambian political context, however, does not ignore such questions. The question of Religion tainted late Andy Mazoka’s political image until he openly became Catholic. Up to now, there are some who do not believe HH to be SDA or even Christian (due to campaigning on Saturdays!). It is very unfortunate but that’s Zambia’s political reality. So Bo Mmembe deal with it!

  11. Mmembe can’t tell you anything just because you ask him. He has his own personal space, just as you do (until you are caught out making out with someone you shouldn’t for example). Outing is the privilege of the one who wants to, not the snitch… Pa Zed iliko bad na ma petty issues ka!? Mmembe waziletelela na political entry – fake news will eat you alive!

  12. Mmembe and Mutembo through the defunct Zambian Airways and liquidated Post had accrued so much from the DBZ, so much that they were not able to pay back. Now when Levy passed on, the two insisted that Mr Ngandu Magande become president. I have always wondered why they wanted this and made Rupiah’s rule very difficult. I suspect the duo expected some reprieve from Mr Magande, just suspicion.

  15. The only person who does not know Mmembes’sexual orientation in Zambia is a naive one, stirical songs have been sung about Mmembe’s sexual orirntation over and over only the naive chose not to understand.

  16. One thing I have noticed from observing Mr Mmembe is that the guy is anti social, does not mix with people he thinks are lesser mortals.
    I am actually surprised that Mr Mmembe would want to offer himself as our leader. Looks like vina bo oka when h.h offered himself, now everyone thinks they can lead us. They don’t seem to learn from h.h’s rejection and his disbelief that “lesser mortals” than him are actually preferred by the Zambian voters. Zambians want normal Zambians to lead them, not “superior” humans like h.h or strange people like Mr Mmembe. And it makes sense, we have chalkenges of normal people therefore only normal people can overcome those challenges.

    • “And it makes sense, we have challenges of normal people therefore only normal people can overcome those challenges”. There I was thinking that solving problems with the same mindset you created them doesn’t help much. Smh.. The poor at mathematics to help the poor at mathematics.

  17. Let him who has not sinned throw the first stone. All I can remember is that Tayali abused a fifteen year old maid and made her pregnant. In Zambia that is also punishable by serving prison time, I wonder why Tayali is still out having the audacity to spit at others as though he is clean.

  18. Call it Christian nations but what is happening in this country is worse than being a gay.Why was red lip Whynter quiet all the time Freddie supported him. If he was indeed a principled man he would not have waited this long until his long time friend formed a parallel party. If Fredie is a gay Whynter is also gay because they have been together for a very long time.

  20. They’ve got nothing. So now they try identity politics. Who’s gay? Who isn’t gay? Next, who is a foreigner and is inelligible to run for President?

    They destroyed the economy by borrowing and doing whatever the IMF/WB told them to do. So like neoliberals across the world, they try to sell the people identity politics.
