National Democratic Congress President Chishimba Kambwili has challenged Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo to respond to the letter written to him by NDC secretary general Bridget Atanga, appealing against deregistration of the party.

Addressing the media yesterday after reports of the disbandment of his party, Mr Kambwili said that Menye Musenge, the founding Secretary-General, had no authority to write to the Registrar of Societies and that Mr Kampyongo was dealing with an illegitimate letter and group because Musenge was an expelled member.

“They have not responded to our appeal and the contents of that letter are not the contents of our appeal. Mwenya Musenge, who is no longer a member of NDC wrote that letter and why should the ministry respond to Mwenya Musenge? As far as we are concerned, that NDC Kampyongo has responded to is not the actual NDC and we do not know it,” Kambwili said.

“We are still waiting for the minister to respond to NDC. If they have responded to Mwenya Musenge’s letter then he is dealing with Mwenya Musenge and not NDC. And ask Mwenya Musenge who gave him the authority to write to the registrar because a secretary general only writes to outside bodies with the mandate from the party, through a resolution but who signed that resolution authorising Mwenya Musenge to write to the minister? For us, the letter we wrote to the minister was signed by all office bearers. A secretary general as an individual has no right to write anywhere; he is only a secretary to the National Management Committee. Mwenya Musenge in not a secretary general and is no longer a member of the party, remember we expelled him,” Kambwili said.

“They were dealing with an illegitimate letter from Mwenya Musenge, we need them to respond to our legitimate letter but we know all this has been orchestrated by Mwenya Musenge and Kampyongo, that’s the way they planned it but they are wasting their time because NDC will never die.”

On Saturday former NDC secretary general Mwenya Musenge told the media that NDC has been dissolved after two years of existence, following the rejection by the Ministry of Home Affairs of an appeal by the NDC party for the minister to consider the party’s deregistration for non-adherence to its constitution.

Mr Musenge said that he will soon form a new political party that will carry on with the vision of the NDC, adding that he has not abandoned the vision of the NDC but will use the New political party as a fresh start for his political ambitions.

He said his role in the new political party will be to look for a suitable leader that will lead the party.

Mr. Musenge has urged his followers to remain loyal to the vision of the NDC and said the new political party will be announced soon.

  1. CK actually your Secretary General is the chief executive of any political party he is a very important functionary as he deals with the day to day affairs of your party. What is in a name? Just register your party properly after all you were just a consultant to Ndc before so now you have a chance come clean and stop burning your energy wrongly

    • Yes join the deads, that’s a fair call.

      But that, right there is the confusion CKinsultor keeps messing himself up with. Some people are fighters but they use their heads not hearts.
      He fought his stay in the party that had thrown him out’a PF party. The end was messy. He never learns, now soiling himself in the deregister party; guess what? The end would as well be messy.
      CKinsultor ought to grow. Once beaten twice shy.

    • These Zambian Politicians think the only way they can make money is having a Political Party…lying to donors and hoping that one day they can form govt and steal more more and pay back donors with our natural resources….Kambwili please for once try to survive as a common citizen and lets see if you will make it….that neck of yours will shrink

  3. Yes burning his energy wrongly. The fact is “his” stolen party is gone, every which way he tries, it’s gone today, tomorrow or the other day.
    If Chimbwili follows constitutional order, how did he change to owner of a party that he was consulting for? Only be theft. He insisted that he was a still membe rof PF not so?
    He should be charged for theft of a property (party) and licked up in a small cell.

    • Then let an independent body look into the matter, if professionalism can’t prevail. If they have personal issues let them talk to Don King.

  6. Kambwili lacks wisdom, he can’t even understand simple issues yet he wants to be President of this country. Who bewitched Zambia? Mwenya Musenge registered NDC while you were enjoying PF money by clinging to the Roan seat. The only official the Registrar will respond to is one on their system. If Atanga doesn’t appear as an official she will never get any response, she won’t even be entertained if she gets to the Registrar of Societies. Just accept that your lies have come back to you. This applies to Harry Kalaba as well. Just go and register your own Political Parties. Be men enough and go through the right procedure, mufisanji amambala?

    • Ayattolah, yes you have hit the nail on the head. What else can be said. Only the secretary general appearing at the registry office would be intertained

  7. That smackdown of PF in Roan was too much for an undemocratic crowd to take. They had to take down NDC by hook, crook or brook… Ni cokako weka pa Zed.

  8. CK lucks wisdom, uku, ekupampamina icamunobe cibecobe CK you are making mistakes that can be seen even by a 2 years born baby, suppose you were a president? Good enough you won’t be. You don’t have heart for Zambians you talk things that sounds sence but it’s because you aspire presidency but perhaps 2050 if at all you change your attitude keep on trying, and with or without money please respect those in power, because that’s what you deserve also

WE ALL KNOW THAT KAMPYONGO IS BEHIND ALL THIS HENCE MY PUSH THAT LET US NOT WASTE TIME BECAUSE NDC WILL NOT COME BACK AND IF IT DID THE UGLY SHADOW OF MUSENGE WILL STILL BE ATTACHED

  10. Kambwili lucks wisdom. What kind of a person registers a company called Mwamona. Coming to NDC Musenge can do whatever he wants even just for fun. Musenge registered NDC while chishimba was eating with both hands.

  11. Samlindo, the mistake NDC made was that when Mr Musenge was fired from NDC no initiative was taken to go and change the names at the registry office.
