Chief Chitimukulu Explains Why he Snubbed UPND Leader HH

Headlines Chief Chitimukulu Explains Why he Snubbed UPND Leader HH

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba people has said that he refused to meet United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema because of his political partners in the opposition alliance referred to him as a misplaced and wrong person on the throne.

The Chitimukulu said that there was no way he could have met individuals that demeaned him.

He says Mr. Hichilema refused to distance himself from the statement issued by the opposition, while NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili apologized to him.

The Traditional leader said Chiefs are supposed to be impartial but work with the government of the day.

He said this is why he has been welcoming opposition leaders to his palace.

The Chitimukulu said this when President Edgar Lungu paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Mungwi today.

The Paramount chief also complained that the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) for 2019 has not been utilised by Mungwi District Council.

Paramount chief wondered why the money has been idle in the Bank since 2019, when people want development.

    A ‘Chief’ or just a corrupt sellout… what an embarrassment to his people he purposely represents.

    • Who is a greater evil to this Chief, people commenting on his suitability as Chief or people who have failed to deliver development to his people by holding on to CDF since 2019?
      The sensible answer to this question would determine who he should have justifiably snubbed.

  2. Here is a very very Old and ancient Chief behaving like a kid in the kindergarten. You wonder when he is going yo have wisdom and behave like a proper chief because he is not the right chief after all. He only sneaked in after Sata passed on. Sosala, awe sure. God help you!! Lobe.

  3. Haaaa kuti waseka! so it is because crazy James Lukuku said something to Chitimukulu? Awe mudala Sosala grow up.
    “Ukuteka imbwa, kano uli namano” mwe mfumu, just because I am no longer a friend of Kaizar, does not mean I am not a friend of Ba Edgar. I can still drink with Ba Edgar, but I can’t drink with Kaizar Zulu or Lusambo… because kuti namuponono, they even know it baffikkala ba mwankole.

  4. This Chief is just too selective. Edgar Lungu said out of ten thieves six are bembas, a direct insult to the bembas, but this Chief Chitimukulu still meets Edgar Lungu, he refuses to meet HH for words uttered by another person.

    44
    15
  5. So since Sata said harsh things against this Chitimukulu, so why did he not shun meeting Edgar Lungu who is Satas disciple. We all know why HH was shunned, that is why the constitution says Chiefs should not be political

  6. I used to have respect for the Chitimukulu but now I see that he is ok as an academic but he is bad as a ruler. Now I see what the foreseeing Sata saw in him. He does not know how to rise above ordinary humanity to being king. He is still in UNZA ruins as a maforce.

  7. Any way, whether this Chief shuns HH or not, he is just a single vote like all of us. And especially that people are sharp now, they never get influenced by hidden agendas set by chiefs on who to vote for, especially after years of economic deterioration by the current PF government

    35

  8. The Chief is Wrong. He should not be selective in who he meets. But HH should also learn to dissociate himself from statements made by his followers if and when he does not believe in them. I am looking forward to day HH will condemn one cadre who causes trouble in his name.

  9. All id!ots here condemning the paramount Chief Chitimukulu, you are forgetting your wizard chief mukuni. Does Mukuni meet HE Edgar Lungu when he visits SP, its only reasonable Chiefs like Chikanta and others who meet the President.

  10. Please, can those who are not under Chief Chitimukulu have respect for Kanyanta Sosala’s point of view. He has the freedom of thought and expression enshrined in our Republican Constitution. If you do not agree with what he is saying, you can still express your view without insulting and demeaning the chief. We who are his people have respect for him and his views. If this is the Zambia you young folks want where you have no respect for anybody in authority, just know that your time will also come when you may find yourself in such a position and others may not render any respect to you. I have great respect for Japanese peoples because they have blended very well western technology with Japanese culture. For Africans, and particularly Zambians of today, it is like our own African…

  11. This chief or thief is a problematic and he is associated with brown envelopes.

    I remember during. MMD erra he aligned himself with Rupiah Banda.

    This is the sign of PF loss next year because he associated with the outgoing presidents.

    PF must go!

  12. THE CHIEFS IN ZAMBIA HAVE NO SAY TO WRONG DOINGS OF THE LEADERSHIP OF THE DAY WHICH IS PF. THEY ARE MUSUMINA YOTE WHICH IS VERY DANGEROUS TO THEIR SUBJECTS. I BELIEVE THEY CAN DO SOMETHING TO HELP THE PF LEADERSHIP IF THEY CAN POINT AT WRONGS THEY ARE MAKING. CHIEFS IN ZAMBIA ARE LOOSE BECAUSE OF MONEY INSTEAD OF TALKING TO THE LEADERSHIP OF THE DAY ON MANY IMPORTANT ISSUES LIKE BILL 10, BROKEN ECONOMY, VIOLENCE ETC BUT ARE BUSY SAYING WE ARE IN SUPPORT OF THE CURRENT LEADERSHIP JUST BECAUSE OF THE BROWN ENVELOPS THEY GET FROM THE STATEHOUSE.
    NO RESPECT AT ALL.

  13. Prior to 2011, one chief justice snubbed the late sata and refused even a simple handshake, to make it worse in church(cathedral of the holy cross), such politics are not new, such is life, but i salute HH for keep quite about this and never rushed to the media to speak about the chief snubbing him, that is clear respect for elders from him, its good its the chief who has rushed to the media to talk about it, but biblically differences should best be sorted by the two and the general public can only be enganged after you exahaust all avenues.

  14. Miming can’t behave so styupid , he will always meet Be Edgar.
    Ba Sosala should have taken opportunity to meet HH and tell him off of he wanted. A chief behaving like a girl, man up, show your solid balls.

    18

  15. if the chief managed to kambwili’s apology from the media, i guess he could have kept this snubbing story from the media too, but i guess the campaign euphoria and all is at play.

  16. When Sata refused to have this guy installed as chief we all thought he was just being victimized and even felt sorry for him. Now we know that Sata was right all along.

    14

  17. Why should UPND be upset that PF has a chief supporting when UPND has chief bungie jumping s*h*i*t head always standing behind HH?

    6
    13
  18. People should not speculate idly about why late President Sata refused to have Kanyanta Sosala installed as Chief Chitimukulu. If you do not know why, do not draw conclusions on the basis of ignorance on the relationship that has been there between the Bisas and Bembas which late President Michael Sata and Prof. Luo tried to ride on to have a Bisa chief installed as a Chitimukulu. Beyond this there were also personal issues between late President Sata and Kanyanta Sosala which we cannot divulge here out of personal prudence. Even UPND Deputy SG, Patrick Mucheleka, who knows something about late President Sata’s relationship with the institution of the Chitimukulu never approved of the way Kanyanta Sosala was treated. Patrick is a good friend of many years and if he is very consistent in…

  19. I have noticed that dandala heads here are talking about Chief Mukuni when the story is very explicit, how can you pass exams like that or let me rephrase how can you sort out the economy like that when comprehension is challenged. For clarity, the issue or the story is Chitimukulu being political and shunning HH who he will be running to soon.

    11

  20. Shi Lubemba has declared war on UPND by refusing to meet HH. Your Royal Highness Paramount Chief Chiti-Mukulu, we are behind you. Your wisdom is infinity. Mwine Lubemba. Chanda Sosala, sosa icalo cilekunfwa.

    12
  21. But if a chief refuses to meet HH, why is he feeling obliged to tell the president, what has the President got to do with that. But anyway the motive for telling the President is known. People are now sharp, they can read between the lines

    13

  22. Sorry, but the chief doesn’t have to suck-up to any politicians; he was ruling people long before any politicians bought their way to the top! And regardless of who becomes President of Zambia, this won’t alter or diminish the Chief’s standing among his people as leader & custodian of Bemba heritage.

  23. We all know that HH directed that insult toward those who steal public funds and use it to bribe voters.However,there is no harm in him rendering an apology. That way,you disarm those that have looked for, but have found no serious case to bring against you.

  24. I love this Bemba King. He is very factual. But, of course those who don’t like facts wouldn’t like the Chitimukulu. And he doesn’t fear whether you are the seating president or not. That’s why the late MC Sata (MHSRP) and the King Chitimukulu couldn’t agree on certaing issues. If this King were a yes man just because one was a president he would have bulged to Sata’s misinformation about the Bemba Throne. However the King stands to the truth.

    If anyone is doubting his Kingship why should they seek audience with the Chitimukulu? Would that be just because it’s election time?

    Elo mweba Bemba namupwa. Umuntu umo comes to insult you at, [email protected]@… in front of your wives and children, and you start laughing for the insult. What if that person were to assume leadership-…

  25. Pockets are aligned and it is clear that Sosala is deep in bed with Edgar Lungu and the PF. I would advise HH to move on from this attempt to mend bridges, the people have the power, not chiefs. Go to the people. Sosala’s behavior rationalizes why Sata did not recognize him. He has loose morals and I am ashamed to call him my chief.

  26. @ Kizito the difference between the two chiefs is that one Mukuni cares less for crumbs Lungu dishes out as to start groveling! As chiefs both must wear a thick skin as not to be petty when it comes to their subjects! As for politics both however need to keep it at arms length for their thrones are in perpetuity and its any government of the day that has to take a lead in working with the royal highnesses and not the other way around for any government is made up of servants for the people! Zambian chiefs lack wisdom to understand the power they have!

  27. Some things we do as Bembas indicate why at times we are not seen as the best thinkers. If Sosala had an issue with HH, the best approach would have been to speak with his chief, Mukuni and then have Mukuni summon HH and give him counsel. Sosala has done a terrible job and has allowed himself to be used.

  28. I have always said , this chief is very petty and Decisive , he behaves like a common PF cader thug , not a senior cheif.

    These are the people who fan tribal hatred and divisions with lungu

    Hh well done for keeping silent out of respect.

    12

  29. An opportunity knocks on the door for a chief to align HH on his grievance but instead the chief runs to cry to the President. What logic is this?

    11

  30. Nonsense! As a chief, one is like a parent who should unite all political players!! If a child errors, the parent should counsel that child, not be behave childishly by dancing to mwankole tune!!

  31. We all know that bashilubemba is the father of all Bemba people , insult him you insult all the bemba speaking people .
    This was demonstrated by your president HH who went to insult all the bemba people in Kasama .
    I don’t know what will happen to him

  32. Please give some resect to our chief, and remember you don’t become a chief for a sake of nothing, these our ancestors than politicians, custodian of our heritage and thank you chief for support given to our , late mother in lusaka

  33. wise timing

    You ridiculously sound like one of the PF regulars KZ or Antonio Mwanza AKA Zambian Citizen in disguise …….

    Only Zambians are now too sharp to believe garbage like that which is like the silly con of the brenhust imperialist agenda …….

  34. These chiefs never learn…I remember one chief who snubbed and got a rough time when Sata was President and used his machinery to watch it tough for the chief.

  35. This chitimukulu is easily been used to fan tribal divisions in Zambia

    We all agree that you have to work with the GRZ of the day , but at present Zambian is at its worst in regards to tribal hatred and divisions

    And as a senior chief in Zambia you should have used this opportunity to raise above politics and help heal these divisions by agreeing to council any opposition leader instead you are showing Petty behaviour unbecoming for the throne you hold

    7
    2
  36. Edgar Lungu said out of ten thieves, six are bemba, direct insult to bembas but he is welcomed by Chitimukulu. HH is not welcomed on account that one guy called James Lukuku said something. My foot, politics must be left to politicians please

  37. Politicians are very good at dividing people….thats how they start civil wars…now its Chitimukulu vs Mukuni…its game on…..both corrupt chiefs and attention seekers so lets wait and see how this plays out

    2
    6
  38. I am bemba and Chitimukulu does note vote for us, so his snubbing of HH is inconsequential. And why tell the President your personal issues instead of talking development the way paramount Chief Mpezeni does. Mpezeni talks roads, fertliser, hospitals, FRA and such things

    9

  39. This is whats wrong with this “money” driven uncultured society. ‘uncultured’ because of unreasoable expectations placed on the chief to see or meet certain people at any cost.
    I think the chief is within his right to grant or refuse audience with anyone without fearing the ensuing mudslinging for it.

    1
    4
  40. Chief you do not owe anyone an explanation. Not especially a crook who issues vulgar language at a public rally, whilst he is the first one to sue people when words he does not like are used against him.

    Chief, you cant lower your standards by meeting such a classless criminal like that small boy HH

    7
  41. Chief did the right thing. HH is a n arrogant Hollowing Hyena.
    Idi.ots are writing bad comments about our paramount chief. None of the bebas will vote for UPND till HH does not reprimand his thuggish cadres and unreservedly days sorry to his royal highness.

    2
    5
    • Who needs the bemba vote? HH will still go through. The vote from Kaizar and bembas is null and void, we don’t need it, Edgar Lungu already told us the character of bembas. The 6 out of 10 rule.

  42. A time should come when we punish this useless loud mouthed nobody.In fact,there is already a case of whether we need an 1diot ascending to chiefdom and starts pursuing a pocket agenda.There is no wisdom in this f00l,as a bemba i disown the old f00l

  43. When the so called Big tree behaves like a twig it’s disgraceful! This
    Chitimukulu is the worst tribalist! He even segregates against certain clans within the Bemba Chiefdom. The good thing is Chiefs come and go. Chiefs can be wise or conseited!
    No one gives a Rat’s a..as s about thiefdoms. What we want are answers why the Kwacha is in free fall despite Copper prices rising. Piyef should not blame Zambians for going with Bally. He is the only politician addressing Economic issue

    7

  44. Tongas here are impersonating Bembas & insulting a bemba paramount chief. They, the Tongas, never ever insult their own biased chiefs. Same like lozis, their chief is a god. So careful Bembas, Tongas have an agenda. You will wake up too late

  46. HH is a sadist and cursed including all UPND sycophants and zealots above who have insulted our Chief and enemies of progress who are into group think mentality…. We shall see if you will win the Bemba vote you have been looking for…You cannot demean our intelligent Chitimukulu and now you’re cursed for life one by one until you apologise you lapdogs for the privatisation thief HH of the UPND…

IWE IMBWA KZ DON’T U INSULT?U ARE A BIG FOOL.NWAY,OBSERVER U HAVE DONE WELL TO EXPLAIN AND IT IS A DISPUTE BETWEEN SATA,KASEBA AND THE CHIEF.AMAFUMU,IT WAS GOING TO BE BETTER TO REGISTER IT TO HH THAN USING THE MEDIA. NWAY,IT IS FINE.GOD WILL JUDGE US.HH WAS THERE WHEN THE SAME MWAKONKOLES WERE FIGHTING U.I REST MY WORDS. CHI KZ UBUMBI KWANTI NISATANA

  48. Just say they gave you their change from shopping or you wanted some ..After all they are now misusing tax payers owned ZAF planes to carry sacks of money to buy out influential people like yourself .Vote this clueless government out please .They are worse than covid 19 and cholera put together .

  49. Kumbali kutukwa Imfumu: Honestly Chitimukulu chipuba. Nacho ichikulu. Amano yena tabakwata. Kabili niba Cadre. This chief actually is the one bent at dividing the nation. He is a tribalist thru and thru. Ngalefwaya nandowe awe. Twatendwa nobupuba bwabo.

  50. Well, if there is any consolation, chitimukulu did not sheet him self in public. So HH thought he can insult the chief in public then later meet him to solicit for votes. This HH must be a very great person. A god for Mukuni and the Tonga people.

  51. Please do not bring the name of our chief in political arena. Ba Chief wesu is a very respectable man and full of wisdom, not HH who stole from all Zambians under privatization. People more especially my fellow BEMBAS’ LETS NOT BE INSULTED BY useless, uncultured, wrong, unprincipled. We shall see if you will win the Bemba vote you have been looking for…You cannot demean our intelligent Chitimukulu and now you’re cursed for life one by one until you apologise
