NDC Leader Chishimba Kambwili outside the Magistrate Court in Lusaka addressing Journalists

National Democratic Congress President Chishimba Kambwili has threatened to take legal action against Konkola Copper Mines liquidator Millingo Lungu.

Mr. Lungu is reported to have threatened KCM employees in active politics with dismissal.

Dr. Kambwili has urged Mr. Lungu not to use KCM to fight political battles for his paymasters adding that civil servants are not allowed to take part in politics.

The NDC leader wondered why Mr. Lungu who is only the liquidator for KCM could now start trading on political lines.

Dr. Kambwili added that KCM currently has about 20 PF serving councilors as employees and hoped that they too would be asked to either resign their jobs or councillorship.

He has urged the KCM liquidator to be careful as NDC was watching him.

The NDC leader said this today in lusaka when he addressed journalists immediately after his matter was adjourned.

Meanwhile, the NDC has asked the Government not to demolish the housing units on land belonging to Manali Secondary school because it is costly for the affected people.

Dr. Kambwili has further accused Lusaka province Minister Bowman Lusambo of being overzealous. He noted that there is no way Mr. Lusambo could issue instructions demanding the demolition of the Manali houses as if he has absolute power over all institutions of government.

He said the Ministry of Local Government and Housing should clearly give guidance on the controversy surrounding the land in question.

He has since thanked the minister in charge of Local government Charles Banda who is quoted as having said that his ministry will investigate the issues surrounding the same land.

  2. Look at the names of those in strategic and powerful positions. If it is not a lungu then it is a sakala and they are all sakalazing. Kelenkaling

  3. Name one prominent bemba or easterner who’s successful and is not a thief. I bet you for each one you mention I can name 500 southerners and westerners. That in itself says a lot when the country has been mainly run by easterners and bembas since independence. Chimbuya based on protecting their thieving backsides because they know such rubbish won’t be allowed when a fair hard working southerner or westerner comes to power. And yes I am from the north and that is how much I despise my own fellow tribesmen

  4. He will be worse than Mugabe and Museveni put togetherthreatened KCM employees in active politics with dismissal. indeed, pressure is revealing his true colours . One minute he is calling Chushi directly and saying him ‘nge ifyo naumfwa (what about this I’m hearing?) Can you cancel it!’” according to Kalaba. Now we hear he threatened KCM employees in active politics with dismissal. We don’t need to remind him why KK was kicked out of power in 1991.

  6. After the 2021 general election results is when we are going to see weather Zambians are normal or not.
    The problem is not with politicians but people that vote for these politicians.

  7. ECL is not going to last very long l don’t see why PF still wants to go with him, they have tried the anmoited thing but it’s backfiring seeing how much of a thief lungu is. The dununa reverse upsets people and don’t know what slogan they’re going to pick since now people know who they really are and the problems have really revealed that lungu is the wrong man for the job. They can’t keep forcing lungu on the people especially that he is not delivering. The signs are all over that change is inevitable if the people are to see improvement in the country

  8. Do we know where and when Milingo Lungu threatened these employees? Was it an internal memo? A press briefing, a boardroom discussion? Let’s have facts please.

  9. What Mr Kambwili is saying does make a lot of sense .Lusambo should have gone for those who issued title deeds for people to start building on land that belongs to the school .He has now taken up the job of judges and lawyers even threatening to transfer people without a varied reason .This guy is now a minister and should abandon his yob mentality and grow up .

  10. Whoever politician feels like a fart always runs to the Courts to release it in Mama Mambilima’s chambers. Is Kambwili sure that such a case will go far? There are other smart ways of dealing with such issues. Yes, most miners are no longer with the PF, and I’m sure Eagle 1 knows that he’s lost his base. Courts don’t solve political problems, please learn from what has happened to Felix Mutati who spent so much money to gather over 3,000 people at Kabwe but today he’s been told that it was illegal. Just tell your members to play it cool, the secret is in the ballot

  11. PRESIDENT EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU WRITES

    To me, Leadership is not about the next election but the next generation.

    With some debate, some writers have attributed the British Statesman Winston Churchill to the following words: “What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?”

    It occurred to me that the task for each one of us is to find a cause – not for self gratification or glory – but for national good, even after we are gone. It is this realization that has formented my belief in what I said on 18th September 2015 that:

    “At the stroke of midnight on 24th October, 2064, Zambia should awaken to one undeniable truth and reality: that ours was a generation of…

  12. Ati “Dr.” Chishimba Kambwili, these bought titles are a shame to our great nation and to all galant men and women of Zambia that have worked so hard to earn their Medical (Doctor) and Philosophy (PhD) Degrees. Then a street chancer buys a degree and you start calling them so and so. Fake degrees are the same as coruption they destroy a nation they do not contribute anything to the development of a nation.
