The National Democratic Congress has suspended its secretary general Mwenya Musenge for 21 days saying his announcement that the party had fired its consultant Chishimba Kambwili was done against the constitution of the NDC.

At a media briefing after a central committee meeting this afternoon, NDC vice-president Josephs Akafumba said the party deputy secretary general Bridge Atanga would act in Musenge’s position.

“We have resolved that due to what transpired for our go to UNZA Radio and make that announcement which has put our party into disrepute. We wish to act as follows. 1, we are asking our Secretary General to go on leave, to give him time to reflect and to give him time to cool off. In the place of our secretary general, our deputy Secretary General Mrs Atanga will act. We will write to him, telling him the resolutions of this central committee. So, those are the resolutions of the central committee. The other matters that we discussed are matters of internal house keeping which it will not be prudent for me to reveal. We all acknowledged that the steps that our brother took are outside the constitution which guides us all,” said Akafumba.

“The duration of his leave is plus or minus 21 days. As to what we shall decide thereafter, we will cross that bridge when we get there.”

Meanwhile, Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo has disclosed that Chishimba Kambwili will appear before investigators on Monday. Mrs Katongo said that said Kambwili’s lawyers wrote to the Police claiming that they were unavailable to make it and proposed that Kambwili turns up on Monday.

“We have recieved communication in writing through Hon. Chishimba Kambwili’s Lawyers that their client was unable to report himself today because there were no Lawyers to accompany him as all of them were committed”.

“We are sending fresh communication for him to appear on Monday at 10:00 hours.”

Police in Lusaka summoned Kambwili for questioning in regard to his perceived racist and xenophobic attacks against an Indian national.

In a call-out signed by Lusaka Division Deputy DCIO, P Sapaulu, the police said that Mr. Kambwili must present himself to Room E3 at Lusaka Division on Friday at 14hrs.

Kambwili was expected to report today Friday, 22nd February 2019 at 14hrs.

In a video, Mr Kambwili is heard insulting and issuing racist remarks against a grader operator working on the Lusaka Decongestion Project financed by Exim Bank of India.

    • We advised Ba Davies Mwila to send that Sunday Thing out to play in trash dump, while we watch NDC hustling on TV. All these week should be celebrated by PF, unfortunately ifinkula fyalifulishamo, no wonder ka Maggie want to sell them in slavery.
      It is week for Kambwili, Mwenya and Mutati.

    • The end. Is this a serious party? Where people keep suspending each each? The NDC is siding with racists, xenophobes and it wants to contest elections?

  1. This party is now a comedy show.

    I had so much hope for NDC, but they failed to win Lusaka Mayoral Seat and have not managed to field one single MP. Mwenya Musenga should just go with his tail between his legs to PF and beg forgiveness. Eric Chanda had resigned and now we don’t even know which heavyweights are left in NDC because I have never heard Acting SG Bridge Atanga.

    NDC will now be added to the Nashala Neka parties

    • He’s enjoying British pounds but he doesn’t want the Indian to enjoy the kwacha…..except that the Indian is supposed to do a job that has no qualified Zambian.

  3. I must say it has been an entertaining week by NDC away from the boring and usual stories of UPND factions trying to be know that they exist by the ICC. NDC is a party of comedians and mad people with no direction at all.

  5. A leader should be very sober minded. Firm but fair. How can you find somebody operating a grader, and you start shouting because of the colour of the person. That is being very f.oolish. You don’t even probe or querry and you start shouting. My posting is not political but this Kambwili chap is sick. And a good leader has good emotional intelligence, if you see such emotional outbursts, something should tell you that tamuli nangu imo mu mutwe. I am a member of the opposition and I thank Mwenye Musenge for quickly picking up this m.adness in this political hooligan

    • Spaka, Sata was in a different era of Zambian politics, and Sata himself was quite a character. To think that one can get away with it just because Sata got away with it is to miss the point. This is the same mistake HH made when he thought that being arrogant against authorities just like Sata was against RB would give him a victory.

      It could past politics to compare sata time and now , but unemployment is worse…

  11. And what do the members of NDC say? They will start trooping back to PF. They can’t troop to trib.al upnd can they? No they can’t, because that would mean supporting the useless trib.al named…..the one who wants to be president because trib.als think the presidency in Zambia rotates according to trib.al.
