Mumbi Phiri

Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary General (SG) Mumbi Phiri has said that President Lungu’s decision to revoke her nomination from parliament should not be misunderstood.

“When appointed to serve, one should be ready to one-day leave and move on so that others also can be given the some opportunity, “she said.

And Mrs Phiri thanked President Edgar Lungu for according her a chance to serve as nominated Member of Parliament.

She expressed gratitude to the Head of State for showing confidence in her by giving her an opportunity to serve the country in that capacity.

She also congratulated new Minister of Finance Bwalya N’gandu for his appointment.

On Sunday, July 14, 2019, President Edgar Lungu revoked the appointment of Mrs. Phiri as nominated Member of Parliament and also dropped former Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe and appointed former Bank of Zambia Deputy Governor in charge of operations Bwalya N’gandu as new Finance Minister.

Mrs Phiri called on the PF members in the country to intensify their mobilisation activities ahead of the 2021 general elections.

Mrs. Phiri said she is ready to commit herself fully as Deputy Secretary General (SG), and help intensify mobilisation activities and ensure that the party grows in all the structures countrywide.

    • There is nothing to understand here.

      You served Lungu well as his vessel.

      He wants something newer, fresher, and tighter.

      Such is life. Move on dear.

    • Ba mama phiri has put it well. The problem with people is when you are appointed you don’t ask why, but only after you are removed. Normal people must know that nothing is permanent. You can not always be down, just like you can’t always be apamwamba. Life is ups & downs. Come 2022 she just might come back as minister

  8. When you are nominated try as much as possible to behave well since you represent the highest office and the people of Zambia. When you drink and start urinating in public places or on yourself, it is indecency, embarrassing to our great nation and must be condemned in the strongest possible terms, especially for people holding such high office. We have all supported the Gender balance, but we are making it difficult for those who choose women to balance the gender because of this bad behaviour by our two women who have been dropped. Their behaviour is in the public domain.

  9. Mwandini ba Mumbi, don’t listen to the trib.als. ,You were only sacrificed in order to make way for Dr Bwalya Ng’andu whose skills the President needs but he has exhausted his nomination options. I for one admire you for your spirit, you certainly understand why this has happened. And the trib.als have no clue what they are talking about, kubwatabwatafye lyonse like ifi bata.

  14. WHERE IS THE MUMBI PHIRI WHO BEAT AUSTIN CHEWE FOR THE MUNALI SEAT IN 2006? THAT ONE WAS A VIBRANT PEOPLE’S MP. SHE HAD A HEART FOR THE PEOPLE GOING BY THE FACT SHE USED TO PERSONALLY VISIT AND COMMISERATE MOST BEREAVED FAMILIES IN MUNALI, MOST OF THE TIME SPENDING NIGHTS WITH THEM. WHERE IS SHE? SHE DEFENDED THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS WITH A RARE PASSION. WHERE IS SHE? PEOPLE NEVER MINDED HER ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS BECAUSE OF THE GOOD HEART SHE HAD FOR THEM. WHERE IS SHE? CAN SOMEBODY FIND HER AND SHOW ME!
