In Mr Musenge’s place, Mr kambwili has appointed Bridget Attanga as NDC secretary General.

      Take it easy. The NDC Central Committee has officially announced that Kambwili is the sole presidential candidate on NDC in 2021 and there in no mention of UPNDC in that statement. So watch the space because PF will hammer you like a hurricane. We all know why PF lost in Roan and that mistake is being corrected not only in Roan but countrywide. The only thing I know is that NDC with Kambwili contesting in 2021 will emerge second whilst UPND will take third place.

    • Nonsense….empty tins…just making noise and wasting people’s time….Kambwili is just Mpatamatu…he shouldn’t be walking around with a chip on his shoulders…HH now looks completely lost……he knows this is just helping PF….

    • Kambwili cannot form government by himself in 2021, it’s too early. He does not have a structure that’s why he needs the alliance partners.

    • Just keep observing HH’s body language and facial expressions after Roan elections….HH knows its over for his Presidential ambitions and it could as well signal the demise of UPND….this is just good news for PF bandits…and Mwenya Munsege is going back to join PF bandits

    • As a man its either you have confidence in yourself or you dont…..HH has no confidence in himself and he is trying to find someone to Partner with…GBM didn’t do any good but if HH wants to sleep with Kambwili he definitely need to use protection because Kambwili is a not trusted….too much sleeping around

    • Every Zambian knows that Kambwili is the biggest bandit….Lungu is a bandit but he is nothing compared to Kambwili….Kambwili will clean all what will be left by thieving Lungu…unfortunately that’s what Politicians are known for….stealing and being power hungry….Sata knew Kambwili was a big Bandit

  5. Loud mouth with forged academic credentials and FORGED political party and FORGED pacra documents.

    A minister who could form a company and get jobs from govt contracts

    The ONLY reason he formed a party is because his source of livelywhood has been tempered with.

    Zwd told us he grabbed a golf course and turned into grazing land.

    This country is doomed because Ecl.hh.ck.gbm non of these qualify for presidency

  6. Now musenge will go to court to challenge the appointment or is it erection of kambwili as president and this party will become another MMD with two presidents and in-fighting then finally the loser will go back to PF.

  7. I can see most of you just talk without properly analysing and knowing the dynamics of politics.
    Let me put it this way in simpler terms; now that CK will stand as NDC president and HK also stands as president in 2021, who do you think stands a higher chance of coming out tops between HH and ECL? The likes of CK and HK will take a bigger chunk of PF stronghold votes which is Copperbelt and Northern province and leaving Southern, North Western and Western intact for HH while HH still has a higher command of Lusaka and Central.
    Upnd may decide to support CK for Copperbelt and support HK for Northern as alliance partners but in MP seats and stand as presidential candidates to frustrate PF. Who thinks ECL can get Copperbelt against imbwili and Northern against HK, forget it bwana. ECL is…

    • Let him take CB but is capable of solving our problems like unemployment? He can’t and will never. All level minded people know what’s happening on the copperbelt. Unemployment is as a result of selling the mines to foreigners, this includes other state owned companies. KambwilI is just a jerabo who can only appeal to emotions. Unfortunately most people are emotional and don’t sit down analyze situations. I asked a brother to my friend from Mpatamatu why he voted for NDC. His answer was that Kambwili will within 3 months create jobs in Roan. A tenant of my friend in the same township was bit more balanced. His answer was we want government to realize that we exist and are suffering a lot. Surely Kambwili has just been making money through contracts for himself.

    • Bwana its 50+1. Hh can win but not enough to enter state house

      Ck is hard core pf cadre and bembas are likely to go into round 2 in support of their like because they wont trust hh after seeing trial of violence that we shall see in upendi stronghold in 2021

      It will be impossible to support hh because his region is voilent

  8. Big headed over one mp. What if he had 3 let alone became republican president

    This boy is just an empty tin surrounded by jobless clowns

    If upendi put up a candidate the boy wouldn’t have won. Hh also , how can you allow this fake doctor dupe you.

    It reminds of of bedtime story of hyna and kalulu

  9. For CK to appoint a shadow cabinet like the one he’s put in place may indicate that he’s really up to something…it doesn’t happen everyday in Zambian politics. I won’t metnion names.

  10. Chimbwi wibilima ababilima tabaya…. never cross a bridge before you come to an end. Winning roan by election is not a guarantee that you can even win presidential elections in 2021, Big NO! Mr.Kambwili is very far from becoming the president. I can agree with some of the comments, definitely as at now we don’t have a presidential material, all these political leaders are thieves. Epo mpelele…..

  11. As NDP coordinator in diaspora (Australia), I would like to congratulate President Kambwili. We are ready to work with any political party not to remove PF from power, but to monitor their performance and correct. Our aim is to improve the lives of ordinary Zambians.

  13. The Problem we have in Zambia is we support undemocratic actions by political parties and yet we call ourselves democrats, how can a president be appointed instead of being voted?

  14. Don’t worry about democracy, as you can see, our party is new and we have no money to go to the convention. The central committee unanimously voted for our president. Before, 2021, we may organize something to make you believe that we are a democratic party.

  15. If Kambwili was not fired he could have remained in PF. What new thing and new development is he going to bring. This is a person who referenced that Zambia was going through the same electricity as South Africa because of low rains. We know that less than 5% of electricity generated in South Africa is hydro. If ever Kambwili is going to be elected as republican president, he will be the worst president Zambia will have.

  21. Dont talk Cheap Politics. Ck has not fired Musenge! He has made some Changes in party positions to create sanity and order in the Party. That warrants party Organisation in a Political philosophical understanding. Again We have to be realistic about the Political situation in Zambia.We are are the TRUE owners of our mother Zambia. We therefore should not continue calling our Leaders Bandits and other related criminology terms! That’s bad habit, Foreigners will take advantage of our rich Zambia and continue plundering our natural resources(wealth) because of what we sow from our mouths. It is not that we are happy the way we Leave in Our rich Zambia. The Emeralds of Zambia and more expensive minerals have gone to build expensive buildings in foreign countries leaving Native Zambians…

Can you recall what the Tongas did in 2016 after the Elections?After hearing that HH has Failed THEY attacked the Bembas in Namwala severely,bruttalising them as if the president who won the election was a Bemba.Is that One Tonga no Bembas or One Zambia no Bembas or To Galina

  24. Kambwili is the biggest bandit and will soon die from shock because he has gotten too excited after the fluke win in Roan. He won because hes a well known crook in Luanshya. Hes not presidential material!

    • HH was played in the last election. Kambwili knew that if the Upnd stood a candidate in Roan PF were going to have better chances of winning. So fooolishily HH accepted and agreed to compete in Bahati where he had zero chances. The combined vote from Upnd and former PFs (NDC) was enough to defeat the PF on behalf of Kambwili.
