Kambwili demands that HH Apologizes for Missing KK’s State Funeral

Feature Politics Kambwili demands that HH Apologizes for Missing KK's State Funeral

Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) Founding Member Chishimba Kambwili has expressed shock by opposition United Party for National Developement (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema’s shunning of the state funeral for late First Republican President Dr Kenneth Kaunda.

Speaking when he addressed the media yesterday, Mr Kambwili said Mr Hichilema’s conduct should be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians and demanded that the opposition leader apologize for his conduct to citizens and the Kaunda family.

Mr Kambwili said that Mr Hichilema’s conduct was “typical of him” as he has publicly vowed to never attend State functions.

“I am extremely shocked that my brother and friend Hakainde Hichilema decided to stay away from the official funeral of Dr Kaunda and claimed that he was not invited…….Like I have said, you will know them by their deeds. What my brother did yesterday is unforgivable. Particularly that he is the biggest opposition figure in the country. When he went to sign the book of condolences, was he invited? No one was invited,” he said.

“He did it because he has vowed never to go and attend state functions. I will leave it for the people of Zambia to judge but this must be condemned. I was not invited but I went because it was too big of a function and because members of the public were invited. That is typical of him. The Zambian people, the Kaunda family, needs an apology.”

Mr Kambwili further mentioned that he tried to advise Mr Hichilema when he was his alliance partner to no avail.

“He has always refused to attend state functions. When we were in the alliance I advised that it is important….because when you become Head of State you will also be inviting other people to come to state functions, he totally refused,” he said.

“He only accepted half way by allowing his cadres to be going for these functions, and unfortunately they only attended one women’s day celebration and that was it. So it is unreasonable and an excellent lie for my brother to claim that he was not invited.”

Mr. Kambwili argued that it was possible for the opposition leader to attend the State funeral with or without an invitation.

“In any case, do you need to be invited to go for a funeral? If you look at the program that was released, it clearly states the arrival of opposition political party leaders, the arrival of the general public…..so are you telling that under the general public one cannot go and attend such an important event?”

“This is the function of the founding father of the nation, funeral of the founding father of the nation were foreign dignitaries came and surely that is the function you can decide to watch on a TV in your living room.”

  1. He said he wasn’t invited.If was maybe it reached him late.Even then does it mean attending KKs funeral was compulsory?
    Can’t someone mourn in private especially in the present situation?How do you know his health status?

  4. Point! Hh is just a super letdown. He’s full of himself and nothing else. He wanted the president to call him?? As CK had said, who gets invited to a funeral?? This is the attitude that destroyed hhs political career-remember, had he listened to Sata’s call to the pact, he would be president today. But because of arrogance, bad tribalistic advisors, lack of political vision, he hates ECL for no reason!!

  5. HH is like a child who waits to misbehave when you receive visitors for maximum impact. That stunt was obvious. He is a coward who fears death and would rather send his cadres to their early graves. You can say whatever you want but physiologically the man is not okay upstairs. KK left a very high standard for that job and unfortunately PF has lowered the standards to kabova level for people like Kambwili to believe that they can have a go at the top job. Invited or not, this was HH’s moment to defy government orders but he decided to play cry baby. Sata didn’t call him under 5 for nothing. If he can do this in opposition, imagine what he will do if elected president.

  11. So many ***** with no knowledge or understanding. HH is the leader of the largest opposition party. History tells you the violence between these two parties. HH was within his rights as a responsible leader not to attend without the invitation that will guarantee his safety and safety of all at the gathering. Actually it’s the other way round, should HH have attended and violence erupts by PF cadres. HH’s presence would have been the story so well done to HH for prioritising the safety of others.

  12. Kambwili is mad. At least that is what he said, before rejoining PF.

    Why then should he be given audience and an ear. Please ignore this fart

  14. Zambians are totally fed up with all the liars in PF: Edgar China Lungu of course who doesn’t even know how to spell the word “truth”, the obese brothers GBM and CK, KZ who has forgotten that he is just impersonating the real Kaizar and who was FIRED by his boss, even the veep. PF: Lying about everything, not delivering anything!

  15. I listened to ECL address broadcasted on Thursday evening and he said and I quote”…the attendance of state funeral will be by INVITATION while the rest of our citizens may follow the proceedings on National television ZNBC and other media ….”. Did this BUFFON expect HH to gate-crush, and what would have happened had HH suddenly showed up without invitation after ECL STRICTLY mentioned that attendance is by invitation? Again, this is CLEAR cover Up by PF, and using this an.im.al to unfairly attack their political opponent. Again, this can only happen in Zambia, elsewhere, the Invitees on top of the agenda would have included all opposition leaders. If PF was honest, why on earth should there be doubts whether invited or not invited, this should have been a straight forward thing…

  17. Listen to this Tribalist! Who does he think he is to order HH to apologize to KK? HH apologizing for what? Has CK not listened to HH’s wonderful Video Tribute to KK? CK’s Tribal Rantings have been denounced by Senior PF Leaders except ECL. Even the Bemba PF Leadership condemn CK’s Tribal Rantings. Bembas are not amused by ECL and CK using them to fight these PF Tribal Wars. ECL is using CK to ignite a Rwanda type of Civil War in Zambia. Zambians reject this and on August 12 will show this by sending ECL “ku wire”. ECL and CK are a Danger to “One Zambia One Nation “.

  18. QUOTE: ““In any case, do you need to be invited to go for a funeral?..””

    IN ZAMBIA IT IS VERY CULTURAL THAT ONE CAN ATTEND ANY FUNERAL WITHOUT BEING INVITED. IN SOME OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE THE UK IT’S THEIR LIFESTYLE TO BE INVITED IN ORDER FOR YOU TO ATTEND SOMEONES FUNERAL. THIS INCLUDES EVEN YOUR VERY CLOSE RELATIVE OR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOUR. SO, BA HH, “BALENYA FYE IFYA KUNYA”. NIKALYA KENE FYE BAKWATA AKA BUPUBA NO BUSHILU BWA KALE.

  19. Even this BUFFOON and other bootlickers were invited to fill up chairs yet the grand-children of KK were left out….its a shame the opposition are sleeping on this issue…PF is lucky the opposition are not savvy media wizkids

  20. Under 5 is just an attention seeker. You get the invite but still go to great lengths to twist the story? Come on man, grow up.

  21. Some folks here who claim to be very important and running the affairs of the country had earlier wrote on another post that HH was not invited and he is a nobody to be scrubbing shoulders with the diplomats and those invited. The same camp reappears condemning HH for not being present at the funeral. One wonders what is really wrong or going on in the PF camp regarding all these confused statements. Of course we know Kambwili is disoriented, but is the entire PF camp so lost that they are always making contradictory statements each day. Why can’t our leaders and govt be consistent for once?

  22. THERE WAS NO INVITE SO STOP YOUR B000*dy LYING PF
    WHO ACTUALLY EXTENDED THE INVITE ??
    THE TR000LL WHO IS FILLED WITH HIS SELF IMPORTANCE ??
    PF IS TRYING TO GAIN POLITICAL PIOINTS HERE

  23. Those defending HH on this one – you are completely lost and your HH missed it. Talking about invitation or lack of it is just clinging to straw – your dull leader missed it big time here, own up. HH clearly demonstrated his total lack of statesmanship over this one. This behavior falls far shot of Presidential material.

    Did Chishimba “Buff0n” Kambwili miss the memo about attendance by invitation only or he is just ranting to confuse those who don’t know. By his statement, he’s actually condemning the PF who made the funeral event strictly by invitation only. Man loves to hear the sound of his own voice… wasn’t he just banned from issuing political statements by ECZ? Who is enforcing this ban?

  25. Only a few months ago you were saying this about Lungu and now it’s your former alliance partner? You must be full of hate and jealous- how do you live with that?

  26. Bane, let’s get the full facts on the invitation. Akali mbusha kabele ati the entire alliance even sent aides to go get the cards and they could not. So aya amano te ya suma. Let’s be above partisan politics during tough times like this. Let those that claim that the card was delivered prove it. We cannot rely on speculations and social media. It is easy to establish the fact and if it is true HH missed it deliberately, then he too must be rebuked. And CK, has no tittle of integrity left in him. Unless he repents and changes genuinely, he is a disgrace to the nation.

  27. The Observer – Which folks are those …why dont you name and shame them so we can look it up if the stated what you have just said as the internet always a footprint.

  28. Eye of an Eagle – It would have been better in that case for HH to have gone and be barred at the Gate of the Showgrounds. Then the whole country would have been on his side. As it stands this is just poor politics on his side.

  29. Its laughable how the same bloggers who were calling BUFFOON CK names when he was in NDC and with Hakienda are now prepared to take a bullet for him…if tomorrow the fat pig decided to form another party they will start throwing stones at him…now who is more foooolish here. Zambia’s biggest problem is not leaders but blind cadres.
    Chisamba Kambwili was a BUFFOON when he was in PF under Sata in 2010 , was a BUFFOON as Govt Spokesman under Lazy Lungu in 2016, was a BUFFOON in NDC in 2018, was a BUFFOON in unofficial alliance with opposition ….surely why would this moron change now…I repeat as I have called him in the past Chishimba Kambwili is a ******* BUFFOON.

  30. @Tarino Orange,
    “..Zambia’s biggest problem is not leaders but blind cadres.”
    I would go further, the problem is the blind Zambian voters, who under trying condition can be so st.u.pid to attend to this Buffon rantings and are aroused by his bemba proverbs.
    ITS JUST MIND BLOWING !! Too many ifinangwa pa zed.

  31. ” Ichikwanka, bachimwena kumampalanya” This bemba adage describes precisely the behaviour we have seen from HH over the times that he has lost elections. HH’s signing of the book of condolences for the late Dr K D Kaunda was just but a public show for himself. This is supported by what his close collegues have said about him. The question is, in the event of a very slim chance that he scores 50.001 % will he expect his colleagues in the opposition to respect him? or even attend state functions? This is the reason why some of us believe that apart from his wrong reason for ascending to UPND leadership, HH has also messed up and lost golden oppotunities of becoming a president on the tickect of a political party that he contributed absolutely nothing to other than being an heir to the…

    THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST –
    Watch “CHISHIMBA – RAW: ”Kambwili Says Lungu Is Corrupt; Denounces Dununa Reverse”” on YouTube
    Watch “Chishimba Kambwili | Lungu Mwine Wachisushi” on YouTube

  33. @adviser, if he did that and crushed with the police, you would have been the same people condemning him. We all know that this time with CoVID measures all events have number restrictions and this event was already stated by the president that it was not open to the public, but by invitation only…I THINk IF YOU WANT TO FIND A FAULT WITH SOMEONE, wHATEVER HE DOES WILL BE A PROBLEM..

  34. CK does not respect what the Republican President, ECL said. The president strongly said Only people invited will attend the funeral at Showgrounds, but CK went without invitation, that means going against what the president said. You can see HH is a abiding Citizens. CK thinks he is very important to attend KK funeral among others citizens who were not invited.
