BEMBAS WILL SUE MR LUNGU ONCE HE LEAVES OFFICE FOR IRREPARABLE DAMAGES FOR CALLING THEM THIEVES

Bembas will forever be stigmatized, traumatized and shunned by society as our reputation has been dented by Mr. Lungu for branding us as thieves and will therefore seek redress from the Courts once he leaves office and his immunity lifted, together with his accomplice Sunday Chanda. At that function Mr. Lungu was invited to address a professional body and not Ukusefya pangwena and whatever he said was official, therefore forget about that nonsense of Chimbuya. There is no any justification for Mr. Lungu to insult Bembas; we are not going to be swayed by any of his paid VUVUZELAS.

Mr. Lungu was fully aware of the presence of media organizations and therefore he was talking to the whole World and he cannot take Chimbuya to the whole World. He clearly knew what he was talking about in front of the cameras; and any further negative comments on the issue will be part of the our case. Intent to injure Bembas was there. Some people may ask why after leaving office and not now? The answer is very obvious, in Bemba we say UKWIPUSHA IMBWA NGE IFWELE.

We are also aware of the fact that UMULANDU TAUBOLA. So, all well meaning Bembas must do the needful when time to vote comes. As this will be the basis on which this compensation will be apportioned. The Province that will record the highest number of votes against Mr. Lungu will get the highest percentage of compensation.

It’s commonsense that all investors coming to Zambia will segregate against Bembas who have been openly and officially labeled as thieves. Even those in employment will be disadvantaged from other tribes as they will always with be treated as thieving employees. Any Bemba who is retrenched between now and before will kick out Mr. Lungu out of office will be retrenched as a result of their employers regarding them as thieves.

No employer in the World can risk employing any known criminal, especially if it involves dishonest behavior such as stealing. Mr. Lungu has placed all Bembas at places of work at high risk and will suffer consequences soon. Retrenchments do not disclose the reasons for such but from my experience as a Unionist, this is an opportunity for employers to get rid of bad eggs. No employer in his normal sense would retrench a hard working and honest employee. But a suspected thief will certainly find himself on the list.

It’s also true that the status of Bembas throughout the world has been gravely lowered in the minds of all normal thinking people and that the reputation of Bembas has been brought in public contempt, disrepute and odium, therefore we will Pray to the Court to compensate us for this injurious sufferings we will forever be subjected to .

  1. It would be wise for the UPND to distance itself from tribal rantings. Akainde was controversially appointed to inherit Mazoka’s throne. How? This was a label which stuck with you for more than 12 years.
    Avoid such unnecessary utterances. Let us dwell on something other than tribe. This is in bad taste.
    Mr Lungu’s jokes were well understood by every logical mind.
    Do not allow yourselves to drink of Akainde’s poisoned chalice.

    • Kikikikikikikik Ba Chanda mwafumakwi? When did Bembas sue the Sengas or the other way round for calling each names? We’re cousins for life please don’t bring tribal issues rebelled against your hh and Upnd to us. Lungu is our cousin, Ba Chanda ikalenifye. I can call Lungu any name like wise he can do the same to me without any bad feelings. No Bemba whether educated or not will sue Lungu. Shame on you Chanda this cousinship started a long time ago and it will never end.

    • Kikikiki but mudala Percy ulasekesha. We Bemba are shockers.
      But what if Ba Edgar brings evidence and line up his “thief” like just example:
      – Jean K
      – Chitotela
      – Amos
      – Sunday and other Chanda
      – Kambwili
      – both Davies

      Ok ok ok I stop, before Ba Edgar fire them for being Bemba.

    • Truth has its way of coming out. It’s true most Bembas I know are crooked. Like it or not, it’s true. They are also lazy, smart for nothing. Lungu said what most wouldn’t. I applaud his honesty.

    • Aliens politician’s. Ndekutwala ku court ati wansuba ubunga pa chililo. Weird politicians. Takuli ukuseka inchimbuya. Kikikikikikiki the Chineese should sue ECL for saying ati babakwati nimpenfu.
      Cheap politics, try fishing or just selling newspapers.

    • % compasation is unfair because Bembas in Southern Province will record lowest % for Ba Edgar.
      I be 1st joiner in this lawsuit.
      Chitimukulu and Mpezeni are the key witnesses.
      Hilarious case, let’s do it on live TV and radio.

    • Abati ninai alesabaila uyo? Pesa Chanda whatever your name, ala ulichinangwa.
      You keep your politics away from our unbreakable chimbuyaship. When did you ever see our indelible cousin-ship with easterners ever get distorted? How many legal suits are you going to handle from Easterners considering the endless jokes we have fired on them in countless generations? Easterners have every right to mock and defame us the way they want anywhere because our acts are mutual. Glad Lungu is consolidating our chimbuya to the new level which is live and well.

  2. HA HA HA HA BUT ITS TRUE, BEMBAS ARE GENERALLY THIEVES, JUST VISIT ANY PRISON IN SOUTHERN OR WESTERN PROVINCE AND YOU WILL HEAR BEMBA SPEAKING CHAPS

  3. I know Kambwili and GBM approves this waste of printables ..and they probably penned this, and even desperate Under 5 approves too.

    But does Nalumango really approve this non sense coming from her party? And is this the group that Chipimo wants to join hands with? Very embarrassing write up from the so called largest opposition in the country my Foot.

    Please, introduce proportional representation so we can have the Sinkamba’s Green party in [ar;parliament as well and not these riff-ruffs

    Nauseating, if you ask me

      My son has nothing but a borrowed accent to offer. He has never been the same after participating in privatization of national assets. Infact the only thing my son and HH share in common is privatization.

  4. So, this Percy foool is more of a Bemba voice than the Bemba Royal Establishment spokesman who has provided a statement opposite to this UPND position?

  5. Bembas and Chipatans are both thieves. I don’t understand, Lungu calling his fellow tribes men THIFF WHEN he Is also aligned in the same category of such and this country has gone to waste. Next time, lets try a thiefless mind and this country will blossom.

  6. Gbm said estenaz are thieves and luapulans

    He gave example of rb. Chiluba

    Truth be told

    Bembaz are thieves

    Tongas are trbalist. Its in the blood

    Go to any indian shop

    All the shop assistants are from estean province because eastnaz don’t steal. Phiri and banda and tembo and lungu are clean

    You wont won’t find chanda. Mulenga. Bwalya.

  7. Tribal creatures camped in UPND think anybody from the North would hate ECL over a joke the president made about bembas and chinese,NO.This Chanda thing should know that ECL is from Eastern so bembas are his MBUYAS!!!LET CHANDA ROT IN A KNOWN TRIBAL PARTY IN ZAMBIA UPND!!!Believe you me,UPND or any other opposition party wont gain anything from this ECL’s joke!!!LET UPND JUST TELL ZAMBIANS ABOUT ITS KNOWN MANUFASTO BECAUSE NOBODY IN ZAMBIA KNOW WHAT UPND STAND FOR APART FROM PROMOTING TRIBALISM!!!UPND tried to paint ECL black after twisting the “UBOMBA MWIBALA” thing last year,but all their evil efforts failed terribly!!!This shall fail soon too!ECL IS LOVED-PERIOD!
    In PF and ECL we trust!!!Come 2021 ni PF nafuti nafuti!!!

  8. No wonder Sunday Chanda called these ones as being USEFUL I.D.I.OTS

    I love Sunday’s harsh but factually correct article not this shallowness by percy Chanda from Katanga Province who masquerades as a Bemba

  9. This hate movement you’ve started is terrifying, you’ve reduced yourselves to hooligans spearheading personal attacks void of any meaningful discussions this is utterly disgusting.

  10. Kkkkkkkkkkkkk ….desperation of the waste kind from the UPND camp!!!Percy Chanda is not the one who wrote the divisive article above but it was writen by die hard TRIBALISTS camped in UPND from tongaland..!!!!Look Chanda,only fo0ls such as you,GBM,Nalumango,Chipimo,Kambwili,can be used by TRIBAL HH and not us majority people from the North who know HOW tongas hate Northerners and Easterners!!!TONGAS OPENLY SAY THAT BEMBAS & EASTERNERS ARE THE REASON WHY MR.HARRY MWAAANGA NKUMBULA,MR.MAZOKA AND HH HAVE FAILED TO RULE ZAMBIA,HENCE THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO KIND WORDS FOR NORTHERNES AND EASTERNERS!!!It is for this reason that majority voters in the North & East cant simply vote for UPND!!!

  11. Lady politician called Imboela is in a serious political dilemma. She left UPND for Kambwili ‘s party, citing tribe issues and all but Kambwili has teamed up with Emboela’s political nemesis. Which way for the lady??!!

  12. It has always been known in every corner of Zambia that Bembas are thieves. Bembas have/are always praising Edidar Chagwa Lungu as a humble president. Just ask Alexander Chikwanda, Mumbi Phiri, and PF secretary general Chanda and most people from Kasama and Luapula. After all, Lungu does not even speak Nsenga or Chewa except Ichi bemba. On this one he is saying the truth which is hurting those concerned.

  13. Apart from this being a mbuya issue, as a Bemba – speaking person, ECL’s statement’s is just an application the laws of probability to demographics. According to the 2010 census, speakers of Bemba as the first and second language make about 60 percent of the population – 6 out of every 10 Zambians speak Bemba. Thus, in most activities, including crime, the probability of a Bemba – speaking person being involved is 6 out of 10. This logic of probability applies to other large demographic groups like Chinese and the Nigerians. The likelihood of finding a Nigerian or Chinese involved in any activity worldwide is higher than that of any other nationality. Predictably, opposition types are inserting dark and sinister meanings in an otherwise innocent and humorous statement by ECL.

  14. But LUNGU IS SMART HE KNOWS HOW TO WIN VOTES BANE THE KAMAN JOKED LIKE THAT TO KEEP UPND AND BEMBAZ CONCENTRATE ON NON SERIOUS ISSUES BY THE TIME THEY WAKE UP WE ARE VOTING

  15. But ba opposition why not understanding tribal cousin. Find something to support you. You are embarrassing yourself.

  16. BA CHANDA ,YOU ARE FAILURE.
    DONT INCLUDE ME IN YOUR FAILED PROJECT.
    BEMBAS WILL SURE MR PRESIDENT FOR WHAT YOU FAILURE,RUBBISH CHANDA.

  17. TALK AS AN INDIVIDUAL NOT AT BEMBAS WILL SURE BRA BRA BRA.
    I CANT SUE MY TRIBAL COUSIN NO MATTTER WHAT.
    JUST TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT PLANS YOU HAVE FOR ZAMBIA.
    SOMETIMES ITS BETTER TO SHUT UP IF YOU DONT SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY

  18. The role of the opposition in any democratic society is to offer checks and balances. You ,the so called chairman of mines representing the five times losing party instead of offering solutions to challenges facing the mines in the country, you are busy thinking of sueing some one upon leaving office.Sir, you have no blessings on this one.This case will be dismissed.In short,it’s going nowhere.

  19. Imwe guys! Even footballers in Zambia is dominated by bembas and easterners.

    Talk of brave politicians who want to be presidents bembas. Take a look at musicians same and now thieves. Check those who have had presidents of this beautiful country check the statistics, easterners 3 bembas 2 and lamba 1 and he was made a president by bemba man. And this is the reason by someone is also using bembas to help him become president.

  20. Something that I have come to learn in Zambia is that when you want to communicate to many people its better you learn at least some words in Icibemba. Many people who do good and bad thing despite which part of Zambia they come from tend to use Icibemba. Icibemba is a language at play in most societies in Zambia. One may not necessarily speak it, but at least understands and is able even to react. So whoever does something good or bad and is able to utter some words in Icibemba does not mean he is Bemba. The comment made by the President cannot be ill timed. We share jokes with Easterners and I see no reason why that today can turn out to be something else.

  21. Ba Chanda if you have nothing to talk about don’t talk tribe issues in political circles Just shows how shallow minded you cadres are. Zambia is beyond that thinking. Shame on you. Just by your reasoning doesn’t even qualify you to claim who you are!
