Allow debate on Bill10, parliamentarians urged – chieftains Malembeka.

Rural News Allow debate on Bill10, parliamentarians urged - chieftains Malembeka.

Chieftains Malembeka of the Lamba speaking people in Masaiti Districts has urged all Members of Parliament opposing Bill 10 to allow the bill to be tabled in parliament.

Chieftains Malembeka said it is unfair for any Member of Parliament to refuse the bill before its contents are debated.

She said Members of Parliament are representatives of the people and should do what they are sent to parliament for.

She said the peace the country has enjoyed over the years should not be taken forgranted or put at risk because of selfish political ambitions.

She stated that Zambia can not develop when it’s leaders are pulling each other down instead of working together towards making the nation a better place for all.
She noted that they culture of opposing anything coming from the ruling government by the opposition is setting a bad precedence and if not handled well has the potential to divide the country.

And Chieftains Lesa of Mpongwe District has called on government to create more job and investment opportunities for the youths in rural areas.
Chieftains Lesa told Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs during her courtesy call on her palace that it is sad to see young people engage in bad vices because of lack of empowerment and social services that could prevent the situation.

She however called on Zambians across tribal and political and divides to keep the peace the nation has enjoyed and remain united.

Meanwhile Chieftains Chimukunami has thanked government for the continuous sensitization on Covid-19 preventive measures.

  1. Chieftainess Lesa is a leader Chief who speaks for her subjects.
    Shimukunami also has seen that PF is a divide and rule on Tribal grounds.
    Chieftainess Malembeka wanted to please Sumaili on bill 10 but that is not what she speaks to her subjects. She said at one time that Balefwayo kutupoka makosa yampanga aba ba PF. She is totally against bill 10.

  2. There’s a saying from the East where I come from, “wakake saka leka”.
    You can’t simply trust a pack rabid hyenas because they promise to not eat you even if they get the chance. Wild animals will always be wild animals, regardless of how much you tame/domesticate them.
    The is the currently the case with our politicians they are shrewd, nefarious and will do whatever it takes to stay in power for as long as they’ll have to.

  3. Chiefs should stay on their Lane and leave lawyers, MPs and other experts to deal with the legality and procedurally matters pertaining to Bill 10. Do Chiefs know that a Bill can only be deferred once for 6 months and after the expiry of 6 months a Bill dies in terms of Parliamentary Standing Rules? Bill 10 in terms of these Rules lapsed on June 4, 2020. It is illegal to retable a dead Bill in Parliament. Chiefs don’t understand Parliamentary Rules and Procedures and should leave MPs to deal with Bill 10 on behalf their constituencies. MPs are elected officials while Chiefs are appointed. Chiefs shouldn’t interfere with the work of MPs to serve their parochial interests instead of National Interests .

  4. What have Chiefs got do with Bill 10? MPs understand what Bill 10 is and the Parliamentary Procedures followed in processing the Bill. It seems the PF Govt cannot “breath” without Bill 10 being enacted into law. They are so desperate to have this Bill passed into law. Well all MPs know that Bill 10 is Evil and have already rejected. Chiefs should be advised that Bill 10 is not only Evil but lapsed on June 4, 2020 and cannot legally and procedurally be retabled in Parliament. Chapwa!

  5. This habit of buying traditional leaders stinks! For that I applaud the Barotse Royal Establishment for telling it to Litunga to keep his friendship with Lungu kafoo (uko). There they do not want these stinking excrement called Bill 10.

  6. Any debate of the Bill in Parliament is just a farce, and a foregone conclusion that it would pass the PF way,for the PF by the PF. The Constitution needs Consensus of the People outside the Parliament of Politicians . The Law needs to be drawn by the People themselves the Owners of the State and Government!. Parliament should only be left to pass subsidiary Laws, the Acts of Parliament and Delegated Legislation. But, not the Peoples Constitution. The Constitution should be handed down to Parliament by the People themselves, through a Referendum. How do we allow the Employees in Government to draw up theirs own Conditions of Service and Employment as Workers of the People? The Constitution should be Assented under Seal by an Agreed Chairperson of a Referendum Commission, rather than by…

  7. Is this madam Minister of Religious Affairs a real christian, supperitending over the affairs of Christian nation? Why go and put such words in the mouth of an innocent chief so that zambians can further be oppressed by a visibly uncaring regime. Madam ikalenifye don’t be part of this mess and confusion. We commoners are saying tulekeleniko especially imwebene nga mulabelenga bible nokukwatako akatina na LESA God Almighty!

  8. LACK OF EDUCATION IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. MADAM,MY HUMBLE APPEAL IS STAY AWAY FROM SUCH THINGS.IT IS A VERY RETROGRESSIVE BILL.THEY ALOT OF THINGS WHICH DON’T MAKE ANY SENSE.FOCUS ON WORKING FOR YOUR VILLAGERS MADAM.

  9. How can they debate ? The opposition are too dull. They have not even read the document and it’s a knee jerk reaction for them to oppose anything progressive. It tells you a lot when a party or rather mps of a party agree to be ruled by a useless con artist who has never held public office and never stepped foot in parliament. How can such a silly boy have a clue. Bill 10 is coming. If you don’t like it then move to Malawi.

  10. I saw Chieftainess Malembeka myself on tv whn she met Godfridah Sumaili. She didn’t say the things reported here. Actually she spoke very well. She said if there’s disagreement, sit dwn and duscuss. Ms Sumaili is not the MP for chief. Why discuss Bill 10 wth voters whose MP you’re not? They hv their representative in parliament and that’s the one to discuss Bill 10 wth Chieftainess Malembeka. Ms Sumaili should hv concerned herself wth juvenile delinquency in the chiefdom.

  13. You see? Our Chiefs/Chieftains are the real leaders of the Zambian people. They have our spiritual traditions in their hands binding us to our forefathers, keeping our history alive.

    LISTEN OPPOSITION.

  14. All these chiefs and chieftainess say whatever the government wants to hear when they are visited by any government official as they dont want their allowances and other perks to be withdrawn. But they are all against the bill.
