Work with Government, Chitimukulu urges Bemba chiefs

Rural News Work with Government, Chitimukulu urges Bemba chiefs

PARAMOUNT Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba people has urged Bemba chiefs to support President Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND administration.

The Mwine Lubemba said traditional leaders are mandated to work with the government of the day in fostering unity and national development.

The Paramount Chief further called for the need to maintain and uphold national unity.

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu has since pledged his and the traditional leaders’ commitment to working with the government under the leadership of President Hichilema.

He made the remarks today at his palace in Mungwi district when he announced the appointment of Bwalya Nkula as Chief Makasa, Peter Chanda as Chief Chikwanda, and Steve Bwembya as Chief Luchembe.

The Mwine Lubemba said the appointments of the three Chiefs follow the traditional council meeting of the 73 councilors.

He said as a supreme body that is mandated to select Chief, the council has since elected the named individuals as new Chiefs.

Meanwhile, Chieftainess Nawaitwika of the Namwanga people in Nakonde District has congratulated President Hakainde Hichilema for his election victory.

Chieftainess Nawaitwika says she is seeking God’s guidance for President Hichilema’s leadership as leading the nation is not an easy task.

ZANIS reports that the Chieftainess expressed her willingness to work with the new government.

She appealed to President Hichilema’s administration to work with traditional leaders in the governance and development of the country.

Chieftainess Nawaitwika further expressed gratitude to voters for their massive turnout during the August 12 polls


  1. Well said Mwine Lubemba, traditional leaders are mandated to work with the government of the day in fostering unity and national development but should not be reduced to cadres like yourself. You were a PF cadre even when Luo who fought running battles over you chiefdom wrangles was a running mate for some party. Its clear you were bruised in the last elections. Mind you you only have a one vote not even two as chief. You have learnt your lesson – politics is not for the chiefs.

  2. Was this not the chief who was dead against Edgar China Lungu, but made an embarrassing U-turn after having pocketed some “empowerment” from PF? We don’t need corrupt leaders like that!

  3. Your Royal Highness well said because your arm was being twisted to accept the likes of Nkandu Luo agnaist your wise judgement.
    It must be a relief to you that your People did not let you down and voted with your wish. Help HH stabilise and restore our Country. God bless HRH.

  4. Way to go. Give the inexperienced Government of the upnd support. They need it. Twaumfwa bakanabes. All inclusive support.

  5. What inclusive support?. Confine your support and governance to your tribe you tribalist. We do not need your advice. You were advised to be no partisn to offer counsel to all zambuans but was overcome by PF tribal chanterswith their gifts. Modern poitics has no role for traditional chiefs. Ours is a polarised society

  6. Enhe!!! Wasambilila you’ve embarrassed us you sellout!!! Look at our Eastern friends!!! They rejected his corruption despite him hailing from there…nomba imwe. Oh!!!

  7. Iwe kasosala. Just keep quiet and dont talk politics. Even wako ni-wako could not work because PF was rotten to the core but you encouraged your subjects to vote for the rotten and sinking boat. What a disaster. Is it not PF that wanted you out of that seat and Nkhandwe Luo herself on top of things. You have learnt your lessons. Next time try to be wise.

  8. This is one man who needs to be educated that the opposition is part of the governance system, the way he treated the then opposition was very sad. His palace was a no go area for the opposition

  9. This is one chief who was openly campaigning for the outgoing disaster party. Even when advised that chiefs have no role in politics, he still teamed up with his friend in Eastern province and chose to be caders

  10. I doubt if this Chief knows that opposition is part of the governance system. The way he treated UPND in opposition was very bad. I think it would be good to disband the chieftaincy system in Zambia. The local government structure is adequate if well resourced to handle all things chiefs currently handle

  11. I totally agree with Mwine Lubemba that traditional leaders are supposed to work with govt of the day to foster development but some like Mpezeni, Kanongesha, Kanyama inclusive Mwine Lubemba became pure cadres and I don’t how are they feeling now that HH whom they detested and campaigned against are now feeling. I hope as some chief from Southern province stated that some chiefs got drunk with PF money have learnt a lesson and are supposed to be neutral as custodian of our traditions. It will take some time before the chiefs who became cadres to regain the confidence and respect of their subjects and general public at large. Traditional leaders like Gawa Undi very neutral and patriotic.

  12. flag Corruption scandals: 48 Houses Social Security Cash Luxury Presidential Jet Ambulances Fire Trucks Mukula Trees Ndola-Lusaka Rd Malawi Maizegate Fuelgate Swaziland landgate Zesco Loans Honeybee

    Licking his wounds… what an embarrassment of a chief this Chitimukulu is! Openly practicing tribalism and openly campaigning for Lungu and PF. I really hope you will apologise to HH, and more importantly to your subjects as they openly rejected you and your divisive politics. Unbelievable! Man is shameless, unprincipled and has no integrity whatsoever… he has lost the respect of all Zambians.

  13. Is this not the guy who even refused to meet HH until Patrick mucheleka intervened on behalf of the bemba clan.
