Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili

National Democratic Congress consultant and rebel Roan Constituency PF member of parliament has said that he will not follow the example of former Bahati Constituency Member of Parliament, Harry Kalaba and resign from the ruling Patriotic Front Party.

In a telephone interview, Mr Kambwili alleged that Mr Kalaba resigned his position as Foreign Affairs Minister in 2018 after learning that President Edgar Lungu was scheduled to fire him.

Kambwili, who was challenged to resign from the ruling party and vacate the seat by PF Secretary General Davies Mwila just like Harry Kalaba did on Tuesday instead of clinging to his seat through the courts, said he would not do so because he was not a pretender and deceiver.

“Tell Mwila, the PF and whoever, that I am not a copycat, I am not a pretender, I am not a ‘chancer’ and I am not a deceiver. I cannot, in all my political life, know that tomorrow I will be fired, and then resign two days before,” he said. “I can never do that because that is deceiving the people.”

“I cannot be expelled today, and tomorrow I go in public that I have resigned. That is deceiving and being a chancer, hoodwinking the people to believe that you have integrity. I am a very straightforward politician. I believe in calling a spade a spade and not a pick for the sake of impression,” he said.

“Those that can deceive the people by resigning when they knew that there was a letter for them to be fired from government must not be role models because such people are deceivers. And by the way, when you go to all the ministries where I have worked, when I was removed people became sad. The mood at the ministry was low as they said ‘we have lost a leader, a brother’ but ask others wherever they worked when they were removed and resigned people celebrated, including their own drivers and secretaries.”

Mr Kambwili, in reference to Mr kalaba, further said that some people aspiring to be national leaders were far from it as their record in dealing with people and their subordinates was nothing to write home about.

“People could not even go to their offices but today they want to cheat the people that they are saviours and care about the people!” he remarked.

Kambwili said unlike him, Kalaba could not challenge his expulsion because the PF followed the laid down procedure to oust his from the party.

He said his case was different because the party constitution was not followed when he was expelled hence his going to court.

    • CK, I don’t understand your attacks on HK. You’re acting as though he is the one asking you to resign.
      Valuable piece of information there too. Tell us why HK was losing his job? Hehehehehe, people mourned when CK was getting moved or fired from this ministerial positions but celebrated the Kalaba firing.
      Thick CK suffers from selfgasm. Extremely full of himself.
      Just resign.

    • Kambwili is one big headed and pompous fella,but he is absolutely right, kalaba, bo Veep and kapatapata at the time of selecting sata’s mpyani did deceive bena kambwili to stay on in pf even with their differences, if he was principled he could have stayed on and fought from within, same way he encouraged bena kambwili .

    • He always talks without thinking. He is trying to score political mileage on an expense of another person who has resigned from PF.

      The biggest risk to Kambwili’s political life is Kambwili himself

      So what are you Kambwili?

      1.PF?
      2.UPND?
      3.DP?

    • And on that note. Zambia should not legalise

      #Marijuana,
      #Chamba,
      #Dobo etc

      This is a prime example in Kambwili… I tell fellow Zambians.

    • Kambwili need apologize to Catholic candidate Kalaba.
      Kambwili misunderstanding on “principled” shows some bitterness. Why so ba consultant?
      It is same Kambwili calling Bo Lungu to resign in principle, instead of waiting to be humiliated in elections.
      All moves Kalaba and GBM made were principled.

    • You’re the one whose is deceiver, a pretender and a big liar.Kalaba has shown integrity but as for you holding on to seat which belongs to PF but deceiving people that you’re a consultant of another political party in the mean time you still want to be considered as the presidential candidate of that party. Is that how consultants work? Ck uliwa fake man.

    • This sounds like envy to me. How do you start attacking a maligning someone like that? Simply because they have a better name than you do? Mr. Kambwili has shown what a proud and envy filled charector he is.

    • @CK
      No wonder you are called a Buffon, now it’s clear.
      Why spew that hatred on Kalaba, when the person who asked you to resign was Davies Mwila?
      DAMN, go…Ha.n.g yourself, man !! This is ridiculous.

      BTW: You PROMISED to “spill the beans”, until now everyone is waiting, so where are your manship and your integrity?
      You have gone too low and you don’t have the integrity you claim.

  1. Isn’t this CK who formed own party. Why standing one leg on PF and the other on his party?
    NO One can serve TWO masters. Do the right thing and resign.

  2. CK is a very devisive persona engrata…..the biggest risk of the opposition uniting to oust lungu and PF is CK….lungu and pf must realise and celebrate this.

    Any opposition alliance with CK is doomed….

    CK as a leader ,learn to harness the art of brining people together, not dividing people.

  5. CK is a time waster.let him move away
    From PF and show his popularity. Keeps
    On attacking anybody without reasoning.people are fed up.If HH keeps
    Him in his team then forget 2021.

  7. My honest opinion on our opposition is they are all clueless and one thing in common hate for President Lungu which is not what majority Zambians are not interested.we demand real opposition which will provide hope for mother zambia.Kambwili and co are just selfish leaders seeking support from Zambians after stealing from them.

  8. It’s difficult to make sense out of this garbage. In my language we say ba kolwe basekana ifi pato. …roughly A MONKEY WILL LAUGH AT THE OTHER MONKEYS BARE BOTTOM AND YET HIS BOTTOM IS ALSO BARE. Now Kambwili starts to reveal things he didn’t dare reveal. Both CK and HK are useless.

  11. CK seems to be sick in the head. Attacking someone who has not attacked him is being crazy indeed. CK is one of the well known corrupt men in Zambia. His firing also came as a result of corruption that had gone over the roofs. His brains or grey matter has gone berserk. His former boss could also be corrupt but he saw that he was being overtaken in terms of corrupt practices and he did not like the competition.
    Disaster!!!!!

  13. @1.8 Nostradmus sorry Kalaba is not a Catholic candidate. …the church cannot sponsor parties. This one you have missed. I’m a high ranking official in the Catholic Church and I don’t remember the church appointing anyone as its preferred candidate. As for GBM he didn’t resign from PF. On the contrary he decided to join the Upnd after being sidelined by Edgar Lungu….The Post January 2015 GBM : ABENA EDGAR TABALEMFWAYA, WE SHALL SEE.

  15. Chiluba handpicked Mwanawasa and later regretted. Mulongoti imposed RB at the expense of other competitors but he also later regretted. Kalaba was in the forefront of pushing for the presidential candidature of ECL but has also regretted. The common factor about Chiluba, Mulongoti and Kalaba is that they all hoped to receive special favour from the presidents coz of their efforts of endorsing them. Chiluba hoped to continue pulling the strings thru Mwanawasa. Mulongoti wanted the MMD Party Vice Presidency. Kalaba wanted to contest the 2021 Republican Presidency under the PF ticket. Chiluba’s frustration led him to support MCS against Mwanawasa and RB against MCS. Mulongoti’s frustration caused him to first support MCS against RB before resorting to pursue his dream for presidency…

  16. Anyway the pandora box is opened. Mr. Kalaba resigned after LEARNING that the latter of his expulsion or fired was awaiting.
    So interested NEWS.
    No wonder I like Edger LUNGU ,the man is too calm ,easygoing,and intelligent.look how HE has handled National dialogue! HH and the CATHOLIC leaders ,they came with FULL FORCE but Edgar has handled them very well.Only frustration on their faces in the end.

  18. If Kambwili had just a fraction of the human decency, he would have continued fighting his expulsion from the PF without associating himself with the opposition let alone leading a party. But as it’s it’s difficult to discern what goes in his head.

  19. It doesnt matter that Kalaba resigned when he heard that he was going to be fired.It makes him a smart politician. He knew when to resign, even in life one has to know when to say yes and when to say no,When to say they can do it and when to say they cant. HK needed to keep his good name so he resigned, that’s smart. No one can take that away from him, not PF and not anyone can say he was fired because that’s a fact he wasn’t and if he was meant to be fired that’s just a rumour

  20. Both CK and HK have joined Nawakwi in being vote spoilers. They are not going anywhere. Are they not the ones who were hero-worshipping Edgar Lungu after Sata’s death? I can trust people like Guy Scott, Sylvia Masebo and others who were strongly opposed to the election of Edgar Lungu as President after Sata’s death. Both CK and HK are hypocrites who can never be trusted.

  22. It’s true Harry Kalaba is really making all competitors jittery about him. The man is so clean and intelligent that non of his rivals can match him. Imagine the entire PF Government is so scared about HK and now it’s clear that even the fellow opposition knows how loved HK is to the entire Zambian population. Mark my word HK will pull a surprise win in 2021. CK is just an empty tin who is fond of yapping anyhow and full of himself but useless. CK must copy the clean politics displayed by Harry Kalaba. Politics of issue based and not insults and attacking other fellows. SHAME on Kambwili. I think my vote will go to Kalaba as he is the only humble and Hope Giving Presidential candidate and not these others we are used to.

  26. it’s true james, ck has a careless language and no amount of advise can change him, he speaks before he think .if ck can lower jesus christ to politics what more a common man like you harry kalaba.kambwili had to appologise to the tonga chiefs for that careless statement in order to get political favours from them.lowering jesus christ to politics is indeed a big taboo.ba kambwili please it’s either you change your behaviour or you leave politics for smart politicians because you are decampagning yourself because now even alex mulyokela of the poor people’s party (ppp) is more popular than chishimba kambwili.what we know about alex mulyokela are more like comeds and what we know about kambwili are insults, careless statements,jealous pompusness and eating with both hands-one hand in…
