Sunday Chanda
Sunday Chanda

The ruling Patriotic front says it finds the reported interruption of Chishimba Kambwili’s radio program in Kabwe highly unfortunate.

Party Media Director Sunday Chanda says the party is particularly unfortunate because the genesis of this occurrence was avoidable.

Mr. Chanda says while the PF advises party sympathisers and members of the public to refrain from any form of physical aggression, they strongly condemn Mr. Kambwili’s uncouth style of politics bent on insulting the President of the Republic of Zambia.

He said today’s Zambia must be void of highly provocative and violent language against political opponents as it is an affront to democracy and an abuse of one’s freedom of expression.

Mr. Chanda said whereas the leadership and general membership of the PF can and will continue to ignore Mr. Kambwili’s provocative and demeaning politics, not every member of the public and PF sympathiser will stomach his inflammatory language and insults against the President.

He said it therefore should not surprise anyone if sooner than later he met his match and has reminded Mr. Kambwili of a scientific law that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

But GEARS Initiative Zambia Executive Director McDonald Chipenzi has regretted the attack occasioned on Power FM Radio in Kabwe by suspected ruling PF cadres.

Mr. Chipenzi said the trend of attacking media houses whenever political establishments are unhappy with the guests invited by the media House concerned is anti democratic and violates the constitution in as far as media freedoms are concerned.

He said the fact that the cadres involved in the attack freely traversed the streets of Kabwe in their numbers to attack the radio station for hosting Mr. Kambwili without police interception is evidence enough that the perpetrators of that violence had blessings from the powers that be.

Mr. Chipenzi noted that in addition, the fact that no arrests have been effected thus far, further stresses the point that those cadres were commissioned to commit such media atrocities on Power FM in an effort to intimidate the station from hosting another opposition politicians in future.

  1. This country will be on fire because of patriotic front hooligan mentality. There is no way a democratic independent country can entertain such.

    • This uncouth style could have been prevented if the president wasn’t espousing corruption. There would have been no need to insult the iiiidddiiiioooocy in ECL

      1. Fire Tracks
      2. Number of MPs increase in deposits that are not commensurate with their earnings
      3. Overpriced contracts
      4. Not paying workers
      5. No vision whatsoever for the country

      Who wouldn’t insult such an 1dddioottt???

    • I can’t read this rub.bish to the end….can someone please, define for me what the real definition of “insulting the President is”, it seems every time someone within PF says something that ECL has not accomplished, that is termed an insult.
      When KBF says PF should apologize for the poor quality of life Zambians are subjected to and that the PF must accept that the quality of life for an average Zambian has dropped to unacceptable levels.
      What we see is that PF leadership hits back, saying KBF is insulting ECL, really?

    • Sunday Chanda is right.
      If CK will double down on his style of politics, PF 21st century cadres will definitely misconstrue his verbatims to negatively unparalleled reaction.
      Now imagine its 2021 and near the election date, will CK continue disparaging his opponent with his vile rhetoric? I am lost, I can’t place CK’s political style’s origin in Zambia. I remember a slight exchange of bitter words between double h and LPM but double h is usually a saint on vile language except that maybe he makes it in his own mother tough to which I can confirm here that Tonga is allien to me. I love to listen to people using it, anyways. CK wants safe platforms as havens to puke insulting rhetoric. I can see he is a coward too.
      As Zambians we must refrain from politics of name calling which by…

    • People just show PF the exit door come the next elections for their impunity and handling the country as if it “beongs to their mother”. Let’s have most if not all top brass in the Zabwino Palibe (ZP) service organization relocated to farming or trading in markets if not private security services as professionalism is restored in law enforcement agencies. Zambia is not short of people who have a heart and mean well for democracy to thrive and the prayer for every individual should be the wisdom that would help guide the nation to identify the right people for leadership.

    • And hear the stinking vomits coming from the filthiest mouth of dog Chanda. Does he think we are kids? Is there no law in this country? Why should iiddoots like Chanda think that all Zambians are happy with the rubbish they are subjecting Zambians to? Why should the Police fear to arrest the criminals if at criminality does not start and end with the dogs in PF with the full support of the impostors? Just wait, your time of reckoning will come. Fools.

  2. What Sunday is saying is there is no freedom of speech and he is not apologetic at all …this is PF habit Sunday has forgotten how PF caders went for him at UNZA radio when he was in MMD ?? PF should accept who they are and stop issuing these meaningless statements ..they have never taken full responsibility of what their caders do it’s always either it’s not our caders or they were provoked

  3. The primary duty of leadership is to protect the citizens. From what we have seen PF has failed in this and the buck stops at Lungu.So why does he even want to continue after failing this basic duty?We want a leader who wont leave us at the mercy of his cadres.Not only has he failed to protect the citizens but he is actually the one responsible for attacking them.From now onwards we should always remember that the buck stops on Lungu,and he should go,he has failed.

  4. What are you trying to tell us? “He said it therefore should not surprise anyone if sooner than later he met his match and has reminded Mr. Kambwili of a scientific law that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
    These are criminals, hand them over to the police if you are serious about peace and enhancing democracatic values.
    What will stop people from defending themselves and their property next time?
    How many people have been attacked at these radio stations, including churches?

  5. Yet again Sunday CHANDA has failed to pivot his position as one who is speaking from a place of power. Sunday, you guys are the ruling party and you need to understand that leadership comes at a price. Criticism and even insults are just part of carrying the mantle of leadership. You are already in an advantaged position because the whole state apparatus is at your disposal so there is no utterance of any politician that should rattle you. In my book you should unequivocally denounce violence without creating or mentioning any other narratives that undermine your statement. Your statement here is equal to incitement! Its code for more violence and emboldens the perpetrators of such nonsense, no wonder people think the PF leadership is behind this. No violence.. Chapwa!! Btw your former…

  8. Just arrest Sunday Chanda because from his comments point of view he send those carders. This man is violent and he can’t survive without indulging himself in such activities.
    Media director’s duties borders only on media issues and not violence in order to be seen by his bosses. In fact Sunday Chanda’s attitude has immensely contributed to the destruction of PF.
    Lastly am urging the hard working SG to tame this man before we lose even the remaining diginit as PF.
    Sunday Chanda stop those acts of violence.

  10. The PF can no longer be trusted by normal thinking Zambians. What the people of Kabwe did to physically protect CK will soon become the order of the day all over the country. We have to wrestle back power from cadres if we are to survive this PF oppression. Wake up Zambians and defend your rights.

    • What convoluted thinking! It can only come from creators of tin pot dictators.a president is not your king nor is he elected to be your father. His is a job in which he has to perform. He isn’t elected to be admired and worshipped but to deliver. If he is not delivering he will be criticised. Some of these criticisms may sound like insults

  24. When ideas of what ever description are fought with fists, machetes, pangas, knives, crowbars and baseball bats and NOT competing ideas,; and when we fail to stomach dissenting views from our political opponents or competititors, and view that dissent as a threat on our hold on power, then we know that our democracy is not deepening but is instead stunting and moving backwards in very short but rapid strides. Let’s get used to the fact that democracy is a noisy system of Government in which we must listen to everything but choose carefully how to react and deal with what we hear said about ourselves. When that happens then we begin to see the beginnings of a healthy democracy.

Just as much as Kambwili is being blamed, it’s a shame on this current government of ours, cause several calls where made to the police which is just about 300 meters away but to no avail.. only to show up when their so called unruly cadres are out numbered, to pliz who? it’s really a shame. acting in such an unprofessional manner all in the name of keeping their job..????????

In my opinion sometimes those are not even PF cadres ,this Kambwili can do anything just to bring down the current government.He want the international community to see as if pf is causing all these bad things and yet the opposition are plotting this.And politics in Zambia are now of personal attacks ,why not tell the people what you want to do for them if at you can form government than everyday talking about a person.I would say simple minds discuss people and great mind discuss issues ,so where do you belong?

  28. What a hollow statement from Sunday. no apology. Instead he is reported as saying;

    “Mr. Chanda says while the PF advises party sympathisers and members of the public to refrain from any form of physical aggression, they strongly condemn Mr. Kambwili’s uncouth style of politics bent on insulting the President of the Republic of Zambia”

    He ‘sdvises’ his Party thugs, but condemns CK. Shouldn’t it be the other way round? This is exactly why I stated yesterday that there is actually no political will to stop the violence. It’s part of the PF ‘strategy’.

  34. Until the majority of our citizenry begin to see beyond the forest, we will never Fi d our way out of this political malaise brought by uncultured, primitive and low level politicians. The politics being played by Chishimba Kambwili are so shallow and it is one of the reason a why high caliber Zambia a would not want to involve themselves in such low level shameless venture. This level of politics is not different from that of Mr. Godfrey Bwalya Mwamba. Unless we have a society that sunctions such behavior we will forever have these low level individuals set the agenda of our great nation. It is not surprising that enlightened people like Chipenzi make such shallow conclusions which lead to nothing. The reason is that in this forest we have low-level politicians who have hit rock bottom…

  35. The PF leader was not being truthful about reopening Mulungushi textiles. Chimbwili will take advantage of such dishonest promises so ba PF expect more exposure of your deceit. The people don’t believe your lies ba PF, you can send all the cadres that you want to beat your critics, but that will not work. How many cadres do you have in Kabwe compared to the population?
    The incident in Kabwe shows that PF leadership has something to hide, maybe many things. If Chimbwili insulted Lungu, the police would have arrested him. So you PF idoits, don’t confuse factual criticism with insults.

  36. …but then PF idoits are no different from trib.al upnd cadres. Show me a trib.al upnd cadre who will not use his panga and spear if you criticise Trjb.al Hacks, there is none. Meaning that Trib.al Hacks in power is same as Lungu in power, and trib.al upnd in power is the same as PF idoits in power. The only difference is that trib.al upnd and Trib.al Hacks would add the evil trib.al element to their violence, and would destroy the country by causing trib.al wars, trib.als vs the rest of Zambia.

Even though they know that ECL does not own that plane they continue to pretend as though it belongs to ECL and not the state.

You don’t go deeper enough .Kambwili was followed to Luanshya by what looked like PF thugs sent some by a chief thug in PF .The police are yet to make arrests because they act on political orders and not evidence of crime .This time around they have again followed him in Kabwe .The police cant act because they are under instructs from Lusaka not to arrest these thieves .Zambia is now a banana republic under Lungu because he has no clue on how to rule a country . The country is now under these toads called PR so and so .

Clearly democracy is Chinese to us because if wasnt, we would not discourage people from expressing themselves, the founders of democracy understand this, you can not interrupt a broadcast over remarks that are not in support with the President, legally, what defines an insult? We should find another term for our system because democracy is not what it is. We can clearly see how our media is so politically influenced, this incident sounds like dictatorship to me because the people in power literally want to dictate what can be broadcast and what cant be. Dont you ever wonder why the news is all about the ruling party and it’s good deeds, and opposition parties and their evil deeds?

CK sings not because he has answers but because he has a song otherwise he would have been telling us about his dreams of how he was to lead in bringing about a better future after 2021. How come he is always singing alone?
