I can make a good Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance-Iris Kaingu

Feature Politics I can make a good Minister of Religious Affairs and National Guidance-Iris...

Mwandi Constituency PF Aspiring candidate Iris Kaingu said she would make a good Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs if appointed to serve.

And Ms. Kaingu says she has zero chances of losing the Mwandi parliamentary election in the August polls.

Speaking when she appeared on the Hot FM Red Hot Breakfast Show, Ms. Kaingu said if offered to serve as Minister, she would prefer the Ministry of Religious Affairs and National Guidance.

She said her second preference would be the Ministry of Tourism.

“If I am asked to be Minister, I would gladly pick the Ministry of Religious Affairs because I believe I could do a better job there, no offense to the person who is currently there but I know I can do a better job,” Ms. Kaingu said.

She added, “Bearing in mind that it is the President’s prerogative to appoint Ministers, I would be happy to serve as Minister in charge of Religious Affairs and National Guidance.”

Ms. Kaingu also stated that she is 100 percent confident of winning the election.

“I have zero chances of losing this election. There is no way I could lose because I have worked with my people for some time now and we have developed such a bond.”

She said she felt betrayed when her Father Dr. Michael Kaingu lost the Mwandi seat to an opposition UPND candidate in the 2016 elections.

“The people of Mwandi betrayed my Dad, now they have a chance to redeem themselves by voting for me so that I continue where my Dad left off. He did a lot of things for the people of Mwandi, he built schools but they still not vote for him, I feel they betrayed him and now they can vote for me and redeem themselves, it’s their chance now,” she said.

Ms. Kaingu said she decided to align herself with the Patriotic Front because it preaches national unity.

She said she was attracted to President Edgar Lungu’s leadership style because of his fatherly approach to politics.

“I like President Lungu because he gives me Adada (Fatherly) vibes,” Ms. Kaingu said.

    • Straight into the front bench!! Which campaigner ever jumped past the seat she was contesting and into government? If it happenswont the PF score a first?

  1. The people of Mwandi should know better than electing a lady who’s only claim to fame is her brush with the law, in a matter which contravenes Zambian culture. Which was also not in line with the religious affairs portfolio she now pursues. Mwandi: wake up and vote for somebody else!

  3. When Iris gets elected, a certain video will be following her continuously. Her being on the ticket is yet another very good reason for NOT voting PF!

  4. Yes baby girl. You have made our party so proud. It is true that you can also make a far much better president than hh. After all when you win that seat, it will mean you have more experience of public office than hh who has never held any public elected post

  5. Where does she expect the incombant to go?? Retire? Is Iris telling us that she is now a Pastor or she’s teasing Sumaili for being a passenger?

  6. Instead of vilifying the young lady, why not support her. She has taken the plunge, why don’t you do the same? I bet she can beat scared HH if he stood against her in Mwandi. Maybe he should start from the bottom

  7. Any reasonable Govt should get rid of this Ministry which is no adding value to the Country’s devt. This Ministry is a waste of Money and is dishing out Money to Churches while Pensioners have been neglected,Hospitals have no medicines,Students have no bursaries etc. The PF Govt’s priorities are upside down. This is one Ministry which should be abolished should HH and UPND come to Power. Our only hope is HH and UPND. HH aka Bally will fix it.

  8. No surprise being in her party everything is possible how will she advise the youths on No…. before marriage? with a plain video not yet deleted on you tube

  9. @6Kabwata you mean we did it before the US Speaker of Congress Ms Pelosi had done so? Kwena Tuli bakali pa Zambia!

  10. I usually tell people to vote as the see fit. In this situation people of Mwandi vote for someone else. Vote for the UPND candidate even. What ever you do do not vote for this lady.

  11. No surprise that KZ votes for the p0rn star, after all, if you are a failed corrupt lawyer, in PF you can make it to the presidency!

  12. Her video will forever exist on the internet.
    However,the PF have many people similar to her like former Education Minister David Mabumba and Chawama Member of Parliament Lawrence Sichalwe.She fits in very well.

  13. She represents the change every woman oppressed by the so called culture needs. Here in North America it’s like the great women of the 50s who rejected the old conservative church imposed ways for the liberal society we now enjoy. If she tailors her message well, she will win.

  14. IN OTHER WORDS, SHE IS TELLING ZAMBIANS THAT THE SO CALLED REV. SUMAILI WAS JUST A STONE FIGURE WHO AHS NOT DONE ANYTHING. IF I WERE REV. SUMAILI I WOULD HAVE RESIGNED ON MORAL GROUND BECAUSE THE GIRL HAS JUST EXPOSED HER THAT SHE IS A NON PERFORMER AND SHE IS NONE FUNCTIONAL SERVING MINISTER.

  15. @THE SAINT have you checked the history/seen pivtures of former US first lady Melania Trump?

    Back to Iris: who are we to judge her for her past when we all have our own dirty closets to clean up? Going by the number of comments her name alone evokes on this thread, one can conclude her “motor is running” compared to others who may be struggling to get started careerwise or make an impact on the political arena. That said, I also think a job in the tourism sector would suit her better. She can start with a secretarial job in the ministry and work her way up.

  16. This young woman has already even started choosing ministerial positions for herself even before being elected as MP for Mwandi constituency. Aya ni maloza. These are signs of being over ambitious, where on earth who does that? We should expect more drama, next it will be Jay Jay Banda saying going to be Minister of Youth, Sport & Child Development or Home Affairs. That is reason I respect Dora Siliya despite her some tuma problems here and there she is above board. The young lady means business and she shall demand a ministerial position.

  17. Some of you upnd diasporans abroad are obsessed with iris past, and yet we know that you are selling *** there abroad to survive. Each time you visit Zambia you show off to your guIlible reIatives , and yet that is money obtained from *****

  18. Zambia should get rid of that religious affairs ministry which is a waste and irrelevant.Nothing against Kaingu herself.

  19. Apa pena PF yalipena. How can any sane mind vote for this girl with her rather embarassing recent past? Minister for Religious Affairs? What an insult to the body of Christ! You first must show remorse andd repent your sins for you to be acceptable in the presence of the Lord. PF please reverse this adoption, there is still time, otherwise this is a lost seat.

  20. It is sad that this is even a debate in a so called christian nation. The time you liars spend on the Oct 18 lying to the people about Fasting and Praying must haunt you. How this whore be an MP? What morality are taking to parliament? They should show her video on her swearing her in. The video must be shown to the all nation. It is easy to get into parliament website. Maybe putting that video there will help.

  21. Congratulations Iris. Aspire to inspire before you expire. Wishing you all the best and Gods blessings!
    Your courage and fighting spirit has paid off, you have your first step in the doorway……Praying for the best outcome.

    1 Timothy 4:12 ” LET NO ONE LOOK DOWN ON YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE YOUNG, BUT BE AN EXAMPLE TO THE BELIEVERS IN WORD, IN CONVERSATION, IN CONDUCT, IN CHARITY, IN SPIRIT, IN FAITH AND IN PURITY.
    THAT CONSTITUENCY IS ALL YOURS !!!!
