Don’t Be Like Kambwili or Nevers Who Play To The Gallery–President Lungu

Share

President Edgar Lungu has described opposition NDC leader and MMD president Nevers Mumba as politicians who are mostly preoccupied with playing to the gallery.

President Lungu took a swipe at the two opposition leaders while addressing scores of party officials in Luwingu District.

“Don’t be like Chishimba Kambwili or Nevers Mumba, in the morning they send me text messages, in the afternoon they are insulting before cameras and in the evening they are apologizing for the insults during the day.

“I can only speak for my brother ‘ba Kambwili’ because I know him and I have worked with him. That’s how he is.

“But for Nevers Mumba I don’t know him that well. I don’t know him, I don’t even recognize him and his group as MMD. It’s like he has not learnt anything from his problems in the MMD. Can he be serious with what he wants, he said.

The President said this in response to PF members who complained to him about certain intraparty issues they had raised with him.

He admonished the party members to be patient and wait to see how their President is moving.

“Ba Luwingu, I know and I have heard the issues you have been raising. I have not forgotten. Things of course may delay but I don’t forget. I am moving and will soon deliver on those issues. I read all the messages I receive. But don’t be like Kambwili’ and Nevers Mumba…You write text messages so kindly wait for responses or action. I am on top of things…, he said.

He concluded by saying that President Michael Sata taught his followers that politics is not what you hear and see during the day.

“We were taught from the best, ‘ba Shikulu ba Sata’ taught us that what you see and hear from politicians during the day may not be the same things they say and do when it’s dark. Real politics is played when no one is watching. So some of these you see attacking us, they are merely playing before cameras, he joked.

President Edgar Lungu has been in Northern province on a three-day working visit which ends on Monday the 22nd of June 2020.

  1. Be Edgar is facing mental health issues, what is doing in that picture, kulafulukuta mu maloba. There is nothing about humbleness in such behavior, kupena ukunomba. Ubushilu is not always violence.
    It’s not fun or degrading him, I like the man, Ba Sumaili do something for that man, I think he is the one who cook for Me Ester now, what is doing with those potatoes?

  3. If you claim you were taught by ba Sata, was Kambwili missing classes since you were all in the same boat before the demise of Sata RIP.

  4. What thew President said is true and this is warning to the youths who are being misused by these cheap , selfish and jelaous politicians.Some of them were against the development of infrastructure which includes roads and new districts.Today they have become inspectors of roads they were against.Look at those misguided youths, because of their copy and paste mentality like that of their sponsors, decide to wail in the bush and some newspaper cals it as government dribled

  5. My humble leader only says few words and they strike because they are true. Kambwili and mumba are well known constant callers at state house. Infact sometimes we have even told the assistants to ignore their calls because it is getting to stalker levels. These men are opportunists who are very dangerous to be allowed to rule this country in future.

  6. Ba Presido J0nathan, Indaba you forgot your in -house Brute Godfrey Mw@lya Bw@mba -G.B.M who in the morning says & I quote “K@ Lungu Ka Ch!k*la nka ka p0nona” & “if you want your suffering to end, don’t vote Lungu” then same afternoon after contracts have been awarded to Arizona trucking states “Lungu is the greatest leader Zambia has ever had & he is developing Zambia”? We all know you are developing G.B.M’s pockets NOT Zed, so please give it a rest!
    P.F is 97% muselela kwa kaba Belly Boys & Girls & they will drop you like a hot potato once you are no longer in power. While most were enjoying with M.M.D, did they ever visit you when you run that Kachasu Shebeen in Jack – Chawama?
    Lastly, P.F.KUYABEBELE!

  8. He is the epitome of hopelessness,

    Preoccupied with survival, he is not even embarrassed to be picking food from the floor.

    No wonder other races call blacks dirty dul.l people.

    A whole president supporting eating from the Floor …..

    He should be passing statements and promising to build prober stalls for the traders.

    A lesson to any future president , pleas don’t embarrass black people like this Morron lungu

  9. This picture is very sad. Ba “daddy” arrived there in one of the most expensive planes and he is squatting to buy some produce from “one of his daughters” who is displaying her wares on the ground! Ba ‘daddy” has put money in her pockets for just that one moment. She may even may have refused to receive the money. Ni ba “daddy” kaili….

  11. No mention of HH is a sign that he has so much respect and fear for HH that he cannot compare him to the two he mentioned

  14. Last elections I saw HH and GBM eating vitumbuwa pa maliketi. His supporters were busy shouting “man of the people”. Another photo showed HH with a cooking stick besides a big pot of Nshima and what did his supporters say,” he will be able to feed 5000 people from the single pot”. Indeed UPND supporters were born losers!

    You should be ashamed of your self supporting lungu picking food from the floor with his $65 million jet is parked nearby……

    PF supporters with lungu are mostly Morrons , that picture of lungu picking food from the floor while billions are lost through his gang looting speaks volumes of the type of thinking in PF…..

  16. With all due respect sir, I don’t think but I believe you are the play to the gallery master. This is not a 3 day working visit but a 3 day playing to the gallery campaign in the midst of covid 19. does your work involve talking about your political opponents? I can only hear someone asking indirectly for votes. Don’t listen to that one listen to me am here that one is not here because i can’t allow him to campaign there is covid. But am immune.

  17. Buying from a poor person is not helping the poor, but creating a permanent solution for the poor is developing a country. For how long is the poor person in that picture going to use the K50? You destroyed businesses for the poor in the name of cholera, now you are posing in a picture with the type of business the police and council were busy destroying. Is that a market or street? Is that development or poverty?

  18. He says he doesn’t recognize nevers and his group as MMD which means he doesn’t recognize or respect the court judgement which declared nevers and his group to be the true MMD. Says a lot about how law abiding he is.

  19. …. but be like me who rules with an iron fist, loves Mukula scandals, loves Chinese better than locals,hates questions of the 48 houses, loves mosi, whiskey and loves to dance Dununa. I warn you, do as I say not as I do. As for you retirees, I am still thinking about it concerning your retirement packages.

  20. If u read between the lines Lungu is telling his supporters to wait until Bill 10 is enacted into law. After that Lungu will have absolute powers to Rule and change things as he likes. The writing is on the wall.
