Lungu hates Bembas and Tongas, says Kambwili

Kambwili mobbed in Monze

Vocal former Information and Broadcasting Minister and Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili says President Edgar Lungu hates Tongas and Bembas.

Kambwili says Lungu’s cabinet does not have bembas and Tongas but instead it is only dominated by Easterners.

And Kambwili has accused President Edgar Lungu of losing respect for Bembas after he was re-elected in a questionable manner.

“He gave us an impression that he was humble, his actions proves otherwise. Sometime I was wondering if he had something to do with the death of our President Michael Sata” he said.

“Today this pretending humble man hates Tonga’s and Bemba’s. Infact he want bembas and tongas to hate each other for his benefit. But let us show him that we are peace loving people, we must shame him” Chishimba said.

“Look at his cabinet today, how many tonga’s are in that cabinet? How many bembas? Now look at Easterners’? Starting from his advisor to the person cleaning his shoes are Easterners'”.

And Dr. Kambwili says Tongas and Bembas must unit for a better Zambia.

“My plea is that both tonga’s and Bemba’s must unit. Bemba’s must not accept to be used in any way to harm our Tonga colleagues. We have to fight this new tribal PF party” Dr. Kambwiki said to a clearing crowd in Monze.

Chishimba Kambwili was speaking in Monze on Wednesday where he went to apologise for his tribal ranting in 2016 when he appeared on ZNBC Sunday Interview programme.

  2. I can’t believe what this man is saying, that the ECL’s Cabinet is full of Easterners! Start counting: Yaluma (Easterner?); Mutati (Easterner?); Chilufya (Easterner?); Wanchinga (Easterner?); Kalaba (Easterner?); Luo (Easterner?); Sikazwe (Chiefs Affairs)(Easterner?); Sikazwe (Presidential Affairs) (Easterner?; Kabanshi (Easterner?); Kampamba (Easterner?); Kampyongo (Easterner?); Chitotela (Easterner?; Nonde (Easterner?); Mushimba (Easterner?). I have counted 14, but it’s possible I have omitted some. But, clearly, no other region can beat this number.

    On the contrary, look at Cabinet Ministers from Eastern Province: Vincent Mwale, Dora Siliya, Charles Banda, Margaret Mwanakatwe (also Bemba by marriage), Nkhuwa. My count says 5 from Eastern province. I may have omitted one or two, but can’t beat the Bemba group.

    So where is this Cabinet dominated by Easterners? This to me is a suggestion that he thinks without him the Bembas are not represented in Cabinet. What a shame! Are these the kind of people aspiring to be leaders of this country?

    I am sorry, I am not a politician per se, but this type of talk is irritating, to say the least.

      • If hon Kambwili said what is in the article,then UPND must be very careful with him because the article is full of tribalism.

      • The constitution allows the President to pick Ministers from Members of Parliament.
        The PF fielded MPs in Southern Province and all of them lost, so where did you want the president to pick Tongas from?

        The same goes for North Western and Western Provinces.

        The ministers who are in Cabinet from those provinces are all nominated at the expense of those who suffered for PF.

        Kambwili is a foo, who calls HH a tribalist and yet his first major statement after eviction from PF is not to united the country but to divide.
        ONLY FOOLISH BEMBAS WILL GO FOR THAT CRAP.

        • Had the article that proposed Cabinet to be appointed from outside parliament been adopted in the revised constitution there would have been a likely probability for regional/tribal balancing if not choosing qualified men and women for cabinet posts. As polarization under the current arrangement looms large marginalization of choice from regions whose representation in parliament belongs to the opposition such skewed regional cabinet will be with us.

    • In a One party state you can balance tribes in your cabinet because everyone belongs to one party. But in a democracy you appoint cabinet according to the people who won elections. If members of your party didn’t win seats in a province that province will lose out. PF didnt win seats in Southern and N Western and that is reflected in the cabinet

  3. My submission is in response to a specific insinuation. Yes, there is need to reveal representation in Cabinet from all the regions of Zambia to shame such politicians who ‘thrive’ on tribalism.

  5. I support UPND but I think I am not comfortable with the statements that I am reading here.

    Kambwili has already started preaching politics of hatred. He should preach inclusiveness. Why is he trying now to divide Tongas and Easterners?

    Let us welcome him in our ranks but we should also school him about the maturity of our politics in UPND.

    We don’t fight on tribal lines, and we regard every tribe, creed, race as equal in the sight of God first and then in the face of the existing Human Rights.

  7. Mr Kambwili,
    Your assertion that the President Mr ECL hates two tribes and you justify your thinking by way of showing the composition of the cabinet. I find your thinking baffling and a clear sign of personal vendetta against President ECL. How many tongas has the President appointed to higher offices, they are there and many.You just have to scan through government offices to see that. Let me say to you Mr Kambwili that don’t run faster than your legs. Today you want to demonise Mr Lungu when the other day you were going about your business without raising that issue in cabinet. Just humble yourself and remember there’s a life to live outside politics, besides this thing of Lungu this Lungu that is sickening. Why can’t you talk about the demerits of your person as Mr Kambwili? I now turn to my Bemba and Tonga brothers and sisters and urge then to read between lines and see that Mr Kambwili is a divisive person and not a unifier. Stop that divisive talk forthwith Mr Kambwili.

  9. Mr.Kambwili may you please desist from tribal politics.We are One Zambia, One Nation.All this time you dined and wined with them, why are you now this bitter.If you were in the cabinet I doubt if you were going to be speaking the way you are now.
    Bembas have never hated Tongas.The politicians are to blame for this atmosphere of animosity in the country.

  10. While we should not encourage Tribalism it is true that Tongas,Lozis,luvales etc have been marginalised and forced to retire in the National Interest from govt jobs and replaced by PF Cadres and mostly Easterners.Tonga Drs have been pre-maturely retired from the Civil Service or Parastatals. Everthing under Lungu is being done on Wako niwako and Umodzi Kumawa basis.Essau Chulu,Irene Mambilima,Margaret Mwanakatwe,RB,Kaizer Zulu,Dora Siliya etc are all Easterners occupying key positions in the Lungu govt. We must call a spade a spade.HH is being persecuted becoz he is Tonga who beat Lungu during 2016 Elections. Saviour Chishimba was released without charges becoz he is Bemba. Had he been Tonga he would have been charged with Treason.The Culprit is Edward Jonathan who has been destroying “One Zambia. One Nation” to consolidate his Dictatorship thru Divide and Rule.

  11. CK is the most tribalist politician of our time. Every time he is emotionally hurting he resorts to tribal sentiments. Lungu has never daus abytbing about Tongas needing to wait for 100 million years before ruling Zambia. It was Kambwili who said Tongas will elect HH if paired with jesus. So who is really tribal here? It’s CK full stop. Allwe can say is that CK is actually insecure and emotionally fragile. To me the man needs to take care of his high blood press and stress. A normal human being doesn’t outbursts like this. CK is hurt. Now he knows how Mmembe and Wynter felt when he was mocking them via a fake coffin. CK grow up and out on grown up boys underwear. Too much matebela.

  13. Kambwili cant stop using the tribal card everytime he opens his mouth because he is a primitive old fashioned politician who only sees voters according to tribe. Lungu hates Bembas and Tongas? That is a joke. Lungu has plenty of shortcomings but they dont include hating Bembas and Tongas. Lungu is a man scared of his own shadow. Why doesn’t Lungu dismiss from his mind HH’s failure to recognise him and go on with life. Its because he is too insecure. That is also why he locks up Savior Chishimba for defaming him. Why should a President worry about someone defaming him? He should be happy that his citizens are exercising constitutional rights

  15. Forgive Kambwili, the man has evil spirits! Ana vibanda! By tradition he needs to go and dance it out like vimbuza. If he has not done this, the evil spirits will continue ruling/troubling him. You men of God out there, help Kambwili, he needs to be exorcised from the evil spirits. Prophet Banda, Major 1, Seer 1 Kambwili needs your help. Ati nifwiti number 1. What does the Minister of religious affairs say about this? Kambwili needs to be flown maybe to Nigeria or South Africa if the Zambian pastors in Zed cannot do the work. Uyu Kambwili niwondwala!

  16. The comment by Kambwili while it may be unfortunate and i doubt if President Lungu does hate Bembas but the issue is RB is the king behind the thrown and his influence and experience in practice of crafty tribalism is there for an objective analyst to see.There is no doubt Easterners and or of Malawian extraction are in control and it is not about Ministerial positions but critical positions important to sustain a regime. Althouh Bembas are majority ministers and are on the radar but real power lies in technocrats and all crucial positions are. consider this: President is Easterner, Chief Justice Mambilima Easter, at Electoral Commission, the ChairmanEsau Chulu and Commissioner Emily Sikazwe – Easters, Chief of intelligence, Samuel Nkhoma is Easter, Secretary to Cabinet, Roland Msiska is Easter! This cannot be coincidence. Guys you have a mountain to climb to wrestle power from these guys. RB strategy is from Kaunda’s play book for staying in power.

  18. Kambwili is revealing what a useless politician he is. 14 cab.ministers is more than half of the cabinet and if Edgar Lungu hates Bemba’s then he hates them passionately.
    My advice to Zambians is forget CK, he is a spent force.
