Impeach Lungu for encouraging theft – Kambwili

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |


Chishimba Kambwili says President Edgar Lungu has given Zambians enough reasons to impeach him, saying the sooner the process starts the better for the country, because the Head of State has demonstrated his lack of capacity to lead the nation.

The Roan PF rebel MP was reacting to remarks President Lungu made during a fundraising dinner in Kitwe on Saturday where he told party functionaries, sympathisers and some government officials present that “ubomba mwibala alya mwibala…but tabatila ati kulya nembuto kumo” which could be construed to mean “you are free to help yourselves to public resources but do not finish everything.”

Kambwili stated that it was regrettable a Head of State could be in the forefront encouraging corruption by public service workers.

“That is corruption. The President is encouraging corruption because that man is corrupt, I have said it. I don’t know how many times I am going to say that this man doesn’t mean well for Zambia. It is high time the Zambians kicked him out of office,” Kambwili, who is a political consultant to the opposition NDC, said.

“How can a president be encouraging corruption? That means that you are supposed to pilfer from where you operate, from where you work from and I think it is unfortunate that you can have a president who can say such things. Of late, the man has become very careless in the way he talks, but that is typical of people who have accumulated so much wealth that they have not worked for. So you can forgive him, the man is drunk with the money that he has not worked for. It is unfortunate that the president can be the one to say that ubomba mwibala alya mwibala. It is extremely unfortunate.”

He added: “He is not consistent with what he says, just three, four days ago he was opening that seminar for ministers and he was discouraging people from misappropriation of money and corruption, then four days down the line he goes to say ‘ubomba mwibala alya ifya mwibala so what kind of a man is he? We have a problem and I think the faster we start impeachment procedures, the better for us Zambians. The man needs to be impeached. And I want to thank the people of Mufulira for showing him, telling him that enough is enough. They refused to go for his meeting, he was addressing small children in Mufulira. Thank you to the people of Mufulira for saying no to corruption, no to bad governance.”
