I’ll counsel Hon. Mweetwa, Chief tells Religious Minister

General News I'll counsel Hon. Mweetwa, Chief tells Religious Minister

Chief Cooma of Choma District in Southern Province has castigated the behavior of opposition political party, United Party for National Development (UPND) Member of Parliament for Choma Central Cornelius Mweetwa over his remarks against Vice President Inonge Wina on the floor of the house in parliament.

The chief observed that it is shocking to see an Honourable Member of Parliament behave in the manner he did adding that a leader should serve with respect and honor in and out of parliament .

Chief Cooma has since pledged to counsel Hon. Mweetwa to ensure that he offers an apology and stops such behaviors as it would set a bad precedence in the country.

Meanwhile Chief Cooma has appealed to President Edgar Lungu not to feel discouraged but continue working hard and delivering development to all parts of the country.

Commenting on the Incident that recently happened in Monze District where UNPD carders jeered the Presidential motorcade Chief Cooma said that behavior should be condemned and people involved should be reminded that Zambia is a democratic Country which can only be ruled by one president at a time.

He said the behavior exhibited by UPND carders in Monze District should however not be allowed to continue.

He reminded people of Southern Province that President Edgar Lungu is President of all Zambians and has a responsibility of checking on all developmental projects in the country and was free to visit any part of the country without intimidation.

He noted that the people of Monze District have the Monze- Nickle road which they have been asking government to work on but wondered how the president was going to work on such projects if the people were giving him such attitudes.

He advised Chiefs to continue working with the government of the day and ensure that development is taken without intimidation.

Chief Cooma has also declared his support for the Constitution amendment bill number 10.

He said the bill contains many good things that can help Zambia move forward.

The Chief was speaking when Religious Affairs and National Guidance Minister Hon. Rev. Mrs Godfridah Sumaili MP, paid a courtesy call on him at his Palace.

  1. Mweetwa said what the vice President said that the gassing was done by opposition was not factual, so what is the counselling for. In the same vein why doesn’t the Vice President just bring evidence that the opposition was responsible for gassing. Simple

  2. Mweetwa is not a kid or your son Bwana chief! There is nothing to apologize for!
    Some Chiefs have become political puppets and therefore irrelevant and stumbling blocks to progress!
    Let the next government abolish these irrelevant establishments the way Tanzania did.
    Ati Tuchawa bati!

  3. Veep must substantiate her claims as Malao above has said! It is indeed shameful for the veep of the country to make such an accusation, and one needs not apologize for stating so.
    Another article on this website says that we ought to treat her as a lawmaker and a politician, this issue of her being a woman and an enderly person is the reason why we are failing to fight gender and age discrimination, if the veep was a man, people would ignore this. Let us ask her what she feels, I bet you she isnt fit for the job is she says she feels hurt and sad.
    This is political leadership, state facts and prove them, otherwise, keep quiet.

  4. The chief has said well he’s promotion oneness. I know those who are against him are waiting for their Chief (UPND cadre) Mukuni to uncouth the unprintables

  5. Its not only the economy which is down in this country. Even logic and thinking is a big problem. How can telling a vice president to be truthful be considered demining, the Vice President has not provided any iota of evidence to her claim and Mweetwa should be apologizing? A President or Vice President are human beings and very fallible. The one who wants to counsel Mweetwa must be counselled that Mweetwa and Vice President are equals in parliament and Mweetwa has the right to question things that are not truthful.

  6. The non facts which Mweetwa is exposing has nothing to do with Chief Mukuni. Please be objective. Nobody and I repeat nobody should just stand up and start accusing people without substantiating , this we should even be educating our children. There is absolutely nothing for Mweetwa to apologise on unless there is a lot of time to waste.

  7. On Cornelius Mweetwa, the Chief is right. Mweetwa behaved like a very uncultured young man. If all of us would do what Mweetwa did to erring elders then we don’t have a country. There are so many fronts on which you can score political goals but definitely no being insolent. Let’s learn to moderate our language. There’s so much anarchy in society because leaders are using strong language against each other. We need civility in politics, whatever the circumstances. VJ can be handy in educating these young politicians about diplomacy

  8. If my neighbour accuse me of defiling her daughter without providing evidence to either to the police or the court and I feel grieved and call her foolish and stupid, I then must apologise for using such bad words. Judge me correct when someone is accused to have committed a crime, she ought to be silent for life……… that woman is too old enough to make wild allegations……if she was my mother, I could rebuke her and ask her to conduct herself

  10. We wish the chief all the best. It is not easy giving counsel to a possessed evil child who is under the spell of an evil demigod satanist by name of HH. Upnd lack respect and are desperate to get power. I don’t blame some of their behaviour because imagine trying over 5 times to win elections held every 5 years and failing every time. I have advised them to change their leader, however the tribalism is deeply entrenched and they will stick with hh until he dies whilst in opposition.

  12. CHIEF MWEETWA IS NOT THE ONE TO BE COUNCELLED DO THA TO WINA WHO HAS BEEN LYING TO THE NATION FOR A LONG TIME. SHE SHOULD BE COUNCELLED TO STOP LYING TO IMPORTANT ISSUES OF THE NATION. CHIEFS DONT BE PURPETS, WHO IS BEHIND THE GASSING AND WHO BURNT THE MARKES? WE WERE TOLD THE MARKETS WILL BE BUILT IN SIX MONTHS BY WINA, HOW MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED? CHIEF FIRST READ BETWEEN LINES, WHY DID THE VICE PRESIDENT LIE? IS SHE A LIER? WHAT TO YOU CALL A PERSON WHO LIE? I WANT TO LEARN.

  13. I don’t see any difference between KZ and CM. KZ was drinking with friends, they had an altercation and he dragged the name of somebody who wasn’t even present. What do his children think of him when they read about his behaviour? How do they relate with their friends in the face of such wayward behaviour by their father? If I need assistance I’ll definitely not call on him although I believe he can assist. And my worry is that one people will lie about him and everybody will believe because they take it as his behavior. The UPND celebrated Sata’s sickness and death but they have no shame to refer to him as HE MCS today, the person they called Chimbwi No Plan. These are just politics, let’s not tear the country apart because we want to outdo each other. There’s life after politics

  14. What does this thief know about Bill 10 and the allegations made about Opposition being responsible for chemical gassing of people leading to the death of 51 people? What can Chief Cooma advise the Hon Mweetwa about gassing and Gutting Markets?Chief Cooma is involving himself in issues that he has no knowledge and understanding. Chief Cooma should leave these issues to seasoned MPs and Politicians and enjoy the bribe from the PF Govt.

  16. KAIZA ZULU IS A DEVIL AND HE MUST BE CONNECTED TO SANKARA WITH HIS KING ECL. LET THEM TELL US WHAT IS SPOKEN ALL OVER ZAMBIA NOW THAT THE PRESIDENT IS LINKED TO RWANDAN REBEL. NOR WONDER WE SEE THESE GUYS DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING BECAUSE THEY ARE MERCILESS TO ALL ZAMBIANS. PF CADRES OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE WHO IS CLOSER TO YOU, THIS IS NOT THE ZAMBIAN SPIRIT.

  17. The Chief obviously is acting out of something…..Patumba…..
    Any responsible government would surely inform its people about whoever was involved in gassing…But someone as old as…..Veep should only tell us that it was because someone was trying to force a regime change…..Where is the intelligence in our country to give us information who was involved in gassing…Bakateka ne bumba bali QUIET……

  18. Mweetwa, if the chief summons( asks for you,) you, go out of respect. But the moment he comes to this issue, tell him to give the money PF gave him to the poor in his chiefdom. And that, this issue is none of his business and bid him a courteous bye bye.

  20. Who is the author of this story, Chief Chooma or LT elucidating from presumption over Chief Chooma discussion with Godfridah Sumaili.
    Chief Chooma is pitted with Cornelius Mweetwa who represents more people than Chief Chooma.
    Let Chief Chooma defend himself to the truth of the story. No rebuttal, its fake

  21. Its this thief oh i mean chief who needs to be counseled. Instead of moving with the tide he wants to swim against it. Doing so will result in him being swept away.

  22. Religious Minister my foot. Why didn’t you intervene and counsel Lusambo when he beat up Kambwili?

  23. Because u are born an African u will remain African despite high education . Please let us give our mummy Inonge respect. This idea of freedom expression from the West is bringing stupidity in our culture. You will allow your last born son to call dad u are a dog you will clap for him cos of freedom of expression. You are just waffling here and there with no points. These are just politics and should not divide our country foolishly and u forget your culture of respecting elders. Consider your thinking and be wise
