MPs joining UPND, Its tribal and personal survival – Kambwili

Filed under: Latest News,Most Popular Stories,Politics |

Chief Government Spokersperson Chishimba Kambwili has described the defection of MMD Members of Parliament as personal survival.

Deputy Minister of Justice Keith Mukata with eleven MMD Members of Parliament and one MP from FDD today joined the UPND. Read the story here.

But Kambwili charged that the defections had some tribal connections saying the MPs know that they cannot retain their seats if they stood on other parties other than UPND.

Kambwili said the MPs think that the UPND will command support in North Western, Rural parts of Central and Western provinces and hence their move to associate with the opposition party.

He said the people where these MPs come from are not tribal and will charge them according to their performance. He explained that the PF had delivered development to all parts of the country in the last five years its been in government.

Kambwili said Mukata to be honest charging that it is wrong for him now to speak ill of President Lungu. He wondered why Mukata is defecting now.

The Information Minister



 was speaking in an interview with ZNBC

Mukata who tendered his resignation Monday morning said his concious had dictated him to do so. He explained that he had so many friends within the PF government but said he would not continue being part of the team running down the country.

The Chilanga MMD MP said UPND president Hakainde Hichilema was the best candidate at the moment to liberate the country from the many economical challenges. He apologised to Hichilema for campaigning against him in the 2015 presidential election.

  10. Keith Mukata has lamentably failed us in Chilanga constituency. He dare not even contemplate recontesting the seat because he will be gravely embarassed. During his tenure he has never set a foot in Chilanga apparently because the residents there did not vote for him. Only those from Mwembeshi area voted for him. He was invited to numerous meetings to help address the issue of lack of water supply to the area when the pipe supplying water from Kafue to lusaka passes through Chilanga. Absentee MP indeed. After eating for this long suddenly he feels PF is not the place to be. Does he think we Zambians are stupid really? Wait for 11th August. We shall teach him a lesson.

    • @Storm – He has failed lamentably??? But then isn’t that the typical norm for Zambian politicians? We vote, they disappear on huge salaries and allowances for 5 years. Reappear after 5 years, and the poor Zambians vote for them again!!! Of course they know NOBODY will take them to task, because it’s not in the nature of Zambians to ask our leaders o account for votes they received!

    • You are frustrated and bitter. The good thing is that you are not God otherwise you would obliterate all ethnicities other than yours. Faecal matter you are. Zambia si anyoko.Why do you want innocent Zambians to continue suffering under this visionless ECL of PF Govt just because of your tribalism with your other fellow Kambwili.

  19. ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION – Please HH try at least to say this unifying motto for once at any meeting or fora. Why do you believe in tribalism and regionalism? Whats Zambia Forward and not ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION

    We know its not in your vocabulary because you are self centered

    All the defectors today are from one or two particular tribe()s or region(s) and you are proud. Anyway ba BA UPND will not form GVT come what may. Mind you Diplomats dont vote, its us Zambians.

    My advise to brilliant Chaps like Muatati, Namugala please dont follow blindly like our sister Mutale Nalumango and other 11 or 12 has done, leave GBM alone, he will wake up 0n 16 August and come back to us.

  21. Kambwili Just defect as well, but for you no party can accept you except for Muliokela’s poor peoples party, but even him can reject you so you see where the pomposity leaves you. ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. It’s unfortunate for this man, he has big body but small brain. I Live in Luanshya…In Roan township, what special things has he done here?Just stealing scrap from the mines and tax payers money, building himself flats and companys in a short period.But small public infrastures like clinics,stations etc are taking 5years to complete. He can managed to fool his foolish thugs…

  23. What is conceived in the mind is shown from one’s actions and words, our elder Chishimba surely should consider his tribal remarks, what have we Tongas done to him? Just for power. Who choose to be born in which tribe and from which parents? Did Chishimba choose parents himself? May he tell us so that we may too choose which parents to be born from! For your own information Mr. KC we Tongas will never go against Jehovah’s making to choose our parents like you did. Any way we Tongas will always and forever be Tongas so loving, caring and tender full of humour . Our little light will always light and indeed one day shine more hence to Jehovah be the glory and thank you Lord for giving us this victory. While, who new that Kaunda would leave power? Who new that Chiluba would leave office after realising how sweet power was? Surely who new that Banda would leave too? Is PF a limited part even Limited vehicles wear out in the due cause. Let’s wait for that date the 11th. Which God does Chishimba worship who isn’t hearing all his utterances and if its Jehovah Ebenezer surely our prayer will be answered soon and only soon, God redeem us from this horror as you are a Just God therefore, do like you did to the children of Israel most of all your will be done. In Jehovah we believe for deliverance. Indeed will always respect the kings of the earth but will fear only Jehovah Ebenezer. Born Tonga and always will be Tonga

  24. Ba Kambwili nokubwatabwata kwenu, echo bamisulila naba president benu. Why are you always against aba Tonga? Of all the tribes sure. Thats the sign of fearing HH. Did you choose to be a Bemba yourself? No one and nobody ever said Zambia will be forever be ruled by Bemba or Ngoniz, but any tribe so long Zambian. Bonse balamisha naba Lungu wenu abamisula kale tata.

  25. Ngayali ni ba UPND defecting to PF, nga muleti ni party yamaka. Lelo pantu abale joina UPND bambi bali benu, yaba ni “TRIBAL” how? Because majority of those who defected are not Tongas then where does tribal come in and no one invited them but they did that on their own. Ba Kambwili know that you’re Lungu’s door mat now.

  26. Sit and think twice my bro Kambwili that you are no more counted in PF but just warming the chair in the office for a time being. When cabinet is resolved, I bet if you will still be with Lungu. No matter how you praise Lungu now, you are already forgoten waiting to be rubbished dear. Why ukulachulila apashili. Eat before you go my brother.

  27. The Title of this article is wrong because it is reactive instead of being proactive. The title should have been about the Eleven MPs who have defected to UPND.Kambili’s story could have come as a reaction.

  28. Not everyone hates Pf the way UPND supporters do, the way u guys will be voting for HH so shall will be voting for ECL,””Sorry honourable chimbwi dog hyna stupid tribalist”” it takes another DOG to understand what the other DOG is barking about.

  30. his man is like a Zambian Julius Malema, controversy seems to be his lot in life.

    The thing about tribalism as with all other evil is that one must have the means, authority, ability and intent to implement it. A Toka Leya cannot be a tribalist except in his own community. This can only happen when the Toka Leya actual does something that infringes on your ability to obtain (or not to obtain) goods, services or oopotunities in their community.

    For Tongas or UPND to be tribalists they must have the power or office to carry out threats. Do they?

    Racism only works in South Africa when a white person can enforce his racism on a person of colour. THerefore though RSA is not racist, racism does occur. Black on white (in government) and white on black (in the farms and private sector) get it?
