Kampyongo rules himself out of the race for PF’s top Position

Feature Politics Kampyongo rules himself out of the race for PF's top Position

Opposition Patriotic Front PF Member of the Central Committee Hon Stephen Kampyongo Hon Stephen Kampyongo has maintained that he harbors no intentions to be PF party President when President Lungu steps down.

Hon Kampyongo who is also Shiwan’gandu Constituency Member of Parliament said he was with his position as Elected Member of Parliament and PF member of the central committee.

Speaking when he addressed scores of Mutitima Residents in Nkulungwe Village in Shiwan’gandu yesterday, Hon Kampyongo thanked the people of the earlier for resoundingly voting for him to represent them in parliament.

“I am grateful to you for the faith you have continued to show in me to represent you in Parliament and I will never take this privilege for granted, I shall work for yoh as I have always done from the first time you elected me in 2011” Hon Kampyongo said.

He said he will play his part as a PF MP and MCC in ensuring that the party chooses a sound-minded and credible leader to take over as President of PF from Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

Meanwhile, Opposition Patriotic Front Mporokoso Lawmaker Hon. Brian Mundubile has revealed that the Party has concluded the postmortem it had embarked on to establish the reason for its humiliating August 12 defeat, stating that one of the findings was that the party lost its shine due to gross indiscipline and misconduct from the party cadres.

And Mundubile has said that the PF has learned lessons and is fully ready to make amends top of which is to instill discipline in the rank and file of the membership.

He said the rebranding was not as easy as 1,2,3 but a long process that required getting feedback from party members and the Zambian people at large.

“You can’t rebrand without knowing what went wrong in the party. Most thought rebranding is about removing this or that person. Now it’s a much more complex process than that. As a central Committee, we commissioned a committee that went countrywide to make inquiries from people especially those outside the party. So the report is out and was presented to the Central Committee. And using the recommendations in that report, we have started the process of rebranding,” he said.

He stated that discipline was top on the agenda of the rebranding because cadrism and hooliganism had taken centre stage in the past causing the party to lose attractiveness.

He said even people who loved the party were totally irritated and fed up with the misconduct of cadres who they said had come to instill fear in people be it in markets, bus stations, and the Civil Service.

“So number one step is discipline. We are going to instill discipline across all party structures, ” he said.

  1. “…thanked the people of the earlier..”
    “….I shall work for yoh…”
    “….because cadrism and…”
    I will leave it at that.

  2. Kampyongo shouldn’t rule himself out of the race for prosecutions however.PF misrule and abuses of power need to be pounced on very hard.

  3. There is no leadership in this man, so how can he rule himself in. Kambwili told us that how can you make Kampyongo home affairs minister and expect nolmacy in the country. We saw a total breakdown of the rule of law during his tenure as home affairs minister coupled with sustained police brutality

  4. Does it mean all along the PF leadership never realized that indiscipline and cadre misconduct had entrenched itself in the Party and community such that people got fed up and were just pretending to wait for the right time to vote out the PF. In fact Stephen Kampyongo is among the leaders who contributed to the PF becoming very unpopular because he never toned down. His language was full of threats and intimidation. He instilled fear in the police service and made the cadres instill fear in the police officers. Its good that Stephen Kampyongo has ruled himself vying for any top positions in the Party. He should just remain in his current status as the party tries to rebrand. otherwise our colleague is a huge disaster. Let others who contributed to the Party’s down fall take a leaf from…

  5. Own the truth. The indiscipline here is Hon Kampyongo including yourself Mundubile and rehearsing president Lungu whom you served to appease. Look at you Mundubile already you missing a point: you thumped upon the working system of law enforcement agencies which led to increased styuupidity among the brain-deficient cadres like Hon Kampyongo and kalimanshi etc. Bill 10-Mundubile you are a lost chap. Having completed scoping exercise, I suggest that PF do a detailed problem analysis using cause-effect relationship model, then after that conduct objective analysis using end-means relationship model. All the actors in the current MCC should leave.

  6. This Chap committed genocide during voter registration by dis enfranchising people from the PF hated Provinces. I wonder why he is still this free when he apparently admitted committing the crime.

  7. As for apportioning blame, I think we all know who presided over the rot. You cannot blame all the; self entitlement, bullying and general thuggish behaviour on cadres alone! Bad behaviour was widespread; be honest about it – it’s the least you can be if you want atonement.

    #plant a tree now please!

  8. Gone with the Wind. Just Join Hamududu. You guys are dreaming if you think PF will bounce back. Check your history on Zambian Political Parties. UNIP, MMD etc. These were Heavy Weights of Parties. Not your STU.PID. Lawless baby Party full of Thugs? You are wasting your time.

  9. Mundubile has left out couple more reasons for the PF loss: stealing, corruption, PF tribalism.

    PF forgot that Zambians had intermarriages: if you fire a Lozi civil servant cos you are a tribal hater, whose wife is Bemba & the couple has 6 children, you are not punishing only the Lozi guy

    That’s how they lost even in their so called strongholds. I don’t know if this whole bunch of tribal haters & thieves have that kind of an analytical brain…they are already blaming only their thuggish cadres.

  10. Kampyongo is actually the most senior PF MP and should consider standing, because after ECL, it was Inonge Wina who has retired, Davis Chama Defence Minister, who as court cases and 4th in line is Kampyongo as former Home Affairs Minister.

  11. There is no leadership in Kampyongo, why was he even thinking people would consider him, I am PF and I know what I am talking about. He presided over the most brutal police force ever seen since independence

  12. Kampyongo thinks with his withdrawal that the ACC will no longer track him down. Wrong! Your cell in Lusaka Central Prison is reserved!

  13. OK. I forgot to comment on the postmortem. Makes sense because ici cintu is dead or just on the brink. The problem was not just cadres. We witnessed such mediocre leadership like we have never seen in a very long time. Leadership that condoned, abetted, and hunted with the perpetrators. Enough said. So you know what to do. Cleanse… cleanse. Most faces must not show up ever again.

  14. Honestly how dull are members of this club for them to realise that descipline is cardinal today?We were trully being ruled by fools

  15. Ba KAIZAR, Muleba @No Corruption Zambia? Its in your Drunken LUNGU time Mwaletumpa. People will beat you up this time around. Can’t you see how Bulldozer Lusambo has been reduced to Zero, let alone you?

  16. @Benson Moono – I think you will find that Lozis themselves are not blemish free. They call other tribes ‘manyukunyuku’! I don’t know what this means, but it certainly doesn’t sound endearing in the slightest. So let’s not delude ourselves one is better than the other. They are both, as thick as thieves. It’s just unfortunate children might be caught up in this nonsense.

    #plant a tree now please!

  17. The Prince reduced to what exactly? I am still the same kaizar, the only difference been that I am making more money now from my private businesses than I was as a civil servant. So what exactly am I being reduced to? Your jealousy and anger is what has stopped you from making it innyour own country and choosing to become a f00Iish asylum seeker in other countries. I need to beat some sense in your empty head

  18. THEIR BRAINS WERE SET UPSIDE DOWN REASON THEY CANT BELIEVE THAT THEY TERRIBLY LOST THE ELECTIONS AND THINKING OF A MAKING SURPRISE COME BACK. THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THE YOUTH WHO WERE A FATOR IN THEIR DEFEAT AND THEIR DISLIKE FOR PF WILL BE THERE EVEN IN 2026. EVEN THE REBRANDING WITH SAME BAD ELEMENTS WILL NOT HELP THEM. THEY WILL JUST DISAPPEAR LIKE THE OTHER FORMER RULING PARTIES.
