Former Minister of Information and Broadcasting Chishimba Kambwili has revealed that Veteran Journalist Kenneth Maduma was fired by President Lungu’s Press Aide from ZNBC, the public broadcaster because of being Tonga by tribe.

Kambwili who at that time was the Minister in Charge of ZNBC said he had to confront President Edgar Lungu to explain why Amos Chanda his Press Aide was harassing media personnel without seeking consent or guidance from his Ministry.

Kenneth Maduma

“Amos Chanda instructed the firing of Kenneth Maduma at ZNBC simply because he is Tonga and its believed he was allowing statements attacking PF from the opposition. Its  not me who fired Maduma and others,” Kambwili who is still the ruling PF’s Member of Parliament said.

Kambwili who is the shadow leader of the opposition NDC made the revelation today when he featured on UNZA Radio programme dubbed Lusaka star.
He also accused Chanda of having been behind the removing of Faith Kandaba from the newsroom for the same reason.
And Kambwili has called for mass demonstration to stop the corruption taking place in government.
He has continued his corruption allegations against President Lungu saying Zambians needs to be told where he got the money he declared during the presidential nominations for 2016.
Kambwili said it was high time that citizens stood up for themselves and demand answers on the dubious riches the President has acquired within a shot period of time after being elected President.
He described President Lungu as the number one corrupt person in the country and that if Zambians continue to watch the plunder of their resources no one will help them.
He called on Zambians to go in the streets and demand an end to the plunder of national resources by leaders.
“President Lungu is the number one corrupt person in Zambia. In 2015 he declared that he had K2million and 1 year later in 2016 he declared that he had 23million where did he get all that money within 1 year. He needs to tell Zambians the screte because everyone would want to know how to get rich so fast,” Kambwili said.
“As for the public we need to do a mass demonstration so that this peeson can tell us how he has gotten rich so fast. Zambians should stop watching people who are stealing from them. It is only Zambian who can stop he plunder of their resources by their leaders.”

  1. Poor drivers!

    Why do these people jostle to operate a broken down state machinery?

    Zambia is a failed state. There are no governance systems, no democratic structures, and no democratic policies, laws and regulations for operation of the State craft.

    What we need are state system enginners, state strucural engineers, state legal engineers, and state ICT engineers. We do not need these auto piloters as leaders!

    We need people who can deliver a new state machinery, by fighting for POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE of the people first. For, how can we attain economic independence before political independence? Yes, in 1964, we only obtained COLONIAL independence. We should now move forward to attain political emencipation as free Zambians!

  2. Being dull and portraying onself as a genious in the domain of inteluctualls is comic to say the least.
    He once said ‘ if Jesus’s was to come and stand for elections against a Tonga then he would lose because the Tongas would vote againt Jesus .
    We do not have short memories for him to fool us , we know he is trying to promote the ugly animal called tribalism.this is sickening .
    Just play clean politics unlike to promote tribal hatred.
    Zambians have intermarried a lot and sooner we may not have these earthnicity stereotypes.
    Aspiring leaders should promote the ‘one Zambia one nation ‘ motto if they are to merit the people’s trust .
    A leader inciting people into the streets when the country is faced with a cholera epidemic , how brainless can one be !
    The leader of UPND took time to visit some cholera centers and that is good.
    The republican president is working hard to ensure the population is safe .
    NDC still has a lot to learn before it matures otherwise it may go into oblivion prematurelly.

  5. Kambwili is indeed a big liar. Who told you that Kenneth Maduma was a Tonga? That’s cheap politics. Ken is a Zambian, quite true, born and bred in Zambia.But he is certainly not a Tonga.Ba Kambwili, concentrate on consolidating your party instead of peddling lies. Ken is a humble man, a gentleman. Don’t drag him into your boring political battles.

  6. Madina is a Ndebele born and bred in Zambia. The parents settled in a Tonga speaking area just like Speaker of the National Assessment Patrick Matibini. Kenneth is married to another Ndebele lady whose father was a Sangoma for the late Michael Data. He was living in Chongwe. Patrick Matibini on the other hand, is married to a Tonga woman from Pemba in Southern Province

  7. Chimbwili doesn’t have conscious, what lesson do expect to learn from 1 who invest his wife in UK for the benefit of a foreign nation all he knows is organizing shame and confusion. Chimbwili has wrong intellectuals of mobilizing his frustrated party. Your mouth to hell.

  8. This is the same man who had alleged that President Lungu’s Cabinet was dominated by Easterners and that Bembas were not represented. He ignored the truth that at least half of Lungu’s Cabinet comprises Bembas or persons associated with Bemba regions of Northern, Luapula and Muchinga.

    With regard to Maduma, I agree that he is not a Tonga. His parents just happened to be Zimbabwean settlers in Mumbwa. By the way, does Kambwili know that the same man he claims to have been fired on account of being Tonga, is Counsellor responsible for Tourism Promotion at the Zambian Mission in Egypt?
