Chief Luchembe of the Bemba people in Kanchibiya district says it is not wrong for paramount chief Chitimukulu to commend President Edgar Lungu for appointing Professor Nkandu Luo as his running mate in the August 12 presidential election.

Chief Luchembe says there is nothing wrong for the mwine Lubemba to support the appointment of Prof. Luo as the running mate.

He says the position of the paramount chief Chitimukulu to support the appointment of Prof. Luo should not cause other people to start attacking the traditional leader.

Chief Luchembe said this at his palace yesterday when Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary Davison Mulenga paid a courtesy call on him.

The traditional leader reiterated that the fact remains that President Lungu chose the right person as his running mate in the August 12 general election.

Chief Luchembe said even him supports the appointment of Prof. Luo and described her as an accomplished politician.

And the traditional leader said President Lungu should be commended for his continued support to women by appointing them to various positions in government.

“There is no need to start attacking paramount Chief Chitimukulu and calling him names for supporting the appointment of Professor Nkandu Luo as President Edgar Lungu’s running mate,” said chief Luchembe.

Meanwhile, chief Luchembe said he was not ashamed to endorse President Lungu and the Patriotic Front (PF) in the forthcoming general election because the head of state has performed well and deserves another term in office.

He said the PF party and President Lungu have fulfilled many promises made to the people of Zambia adding that the achievements are there for everyone to see.

And Muchinga Province Permanent Davison Mulenga reaffirmed government’s commitment to work with traditional leaders to foster development in their chiefdoms.

Captain Mulenga said government considers traditional leaders as partners in development.

He said he decided to visit traditional leaders to interact with them so as to know and understand the challenges they were facing together with their subjects.

“At the time I was being sworn in as Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary, President Edgar Lungu directed me to visit all the traditional leaders in the province and this is what I am doing so that I can understand the challenges of each and every chiefdom in the province,” he said.

  1. Chitimukulu is burning inside and he knows it only that he can’t talk because of handouts.

    These are type of chiefs who would sell his people to the slave traders.

    PF must go!

  4. Chitumukulu now using his sub chiefs to defend him. Can’t he speak for himself? He used to talk a lot even writing long boring articles in the post before he became chief. What happened now ? Is it empowerment funds at work?

  5. I wouldnt be exited to be supported by chiefs. Most are documented to have supported the slave traders, colonialists, UNIP dictatorship, Chilubas third term etc. Look, the chief only carries one vote and has very little influence on what happens in the voting booth

  6. Even without Chitimukulu doing anything, Patrick Mucheleka who claims to a nephew of Mwine Lubemba, and his Party UPND always insult Chitimukulu and have never apologized. Nkandu Luo is as human as Mucheleka, the day the latter will come to his senses and apologize for being disrespectful he’ll be embraced just like has been done to Nkandu. However I doubt if Mucheleka and the UPND have that wisdom to be humble
