Mumbi Phiri

Newly appointed PF deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri yesterday engaged in a serious altercation with several UPND supporters when she said their party would never be in power, according to The Post newspaper.

And Phiri has urged Zambians in PF strongholds to register and give Edgar Lungu an overwhelming vote in next year’s general elections “just like the people of Southern Province voted for the UPND in January’s presidential election”.

Speaking during a programme on Joy FM Radio yesterday, Phiri, who sounded excited about her appointment, however, offended some UPND callers on the programme after she said “bakachema (herdsmen)” cannot rule this country’.

One of the incensed callers charged that Mumbi had no respect as they exchanged words on air.

“You are known to be somebody who has got no respect for many and you went to an extent of saying that ‘bakachema cannot rule this country…’,” said the unidentified caller.

But Phiri said she was a cultured and respectable woman, who had been married for 25 years and had seven children.

“I was waiting for a UPND caller. Let me remind this man that I have been married for 25 years. I am a mother of seven. When my husband is around, you come and see how I behave filya bamo balaba aba kashana ebo ndingene nabo (what some of the women of my age have forgotten). That is what I do. Bushe ngawalanda ati niwe kachema, ninshi wasalula abaume? Ala umunani usuma uyilombela umuchele noyu umunani usuma uwaisa muno muchalo. Mwalimona  after the last election in January,  ifintu abanensu (UPND) ba bavotele. So tuleyeba abantu besu, abantu aba temwa PF ku Copperbelt, Lusaka Province, ukwima icintinta ng’ombe ukuya mukuvota. Mwalimona efyo batulangile ku Mazabuka, ba Edgar ba fumako na zero. Naifwe ukwaba ama strongholds, nga walitemwa PF, iyi voter registration yala amba, that is what we have to do (When you say that you are a herdsman, does it mean you have belittled men? Relish that is delicious does not need anyone to ask for salt for it. You saw how our friends (UPND) voted in the last election. So we are telling our people, those who love PF in Copperbelt, Lusaka Province, to turn up in numbers to vote. You saw how they showed us in Mazabuka! Edgar came out with no vote. So even us where we have strongholds, if you love PF, this voter registration which will start, that is what we have to do),” Phiri responded.

She said the UPND could not fulfil the promises it was making to Zambians.

“Baletila ati ubunga tukabweshya. Chinshi bafililwa ukubwesha inama shaba kumwabo? Bali kwata amatanga in thousands (They are saying that we will reduce the price of mealie-meal when voted into power. Why have they failed to reduce the price of their cattle which they have in thousands?) Show us by example. Let them show us,” said Phiri.

But another caller identified as Fernando told Phiri that PF would die a natural death before the 2016 elections.

“…2016, you and your PF will die a natural death. May your souls rest in peace in 2016,”  said Fernando, while another called, Elijah Ngwale, said Phiri had been polluted by tribal politics.

“Please, please, be what you were during that time when you were member of parliament. You did not practice such kind of politics,” said Ngwale.

    • Mumbi Phiri is a loose woman who can fall for anything in using cheating on her husband. I can imagine marrying such a woman. The bible talks of a virtuous woman who respects herself, not this imbecile. She had demeaned Tongas so much so let’s also demean her. She is an idiot, a fool and a skunk. Not even worth the time of day. One day tables will turn, and people will know that tribal politics are not good. Stop inciting hate you idiot of a woman who thinks this country only belongs to thieves.

  2. Mumbi Phiri your words are not good for any place. Your campaign strategy is the poorest of all no wonder you are poverty striken together with those that you support. Imwe tu Panga Family chaps you have gone too far and soon we will ask God to deal with you individually till you realise that your dirty tactics are bringing problems to most Zambians that cherish peace and unity. Bushe iwe ka Mumbi ulefyaya Elizabeth Chitika akakunyele nafuti? Watch your mouth you failures who only survive through politics and stealing from government. Come 2016 we will vote for HH and UPND the whole Zambia. Mumbi go and vote for sick no vision president who feels good sharing your insults towards HH.

  3. It is very unfortunate that some politicians are still practicing politics of tribalism. Remarks by Mumbi cannot go un challenged. Every tribe in Zambia is as important as another regardless off its population.

  4. These are cheap politics of Zambia which unfortunately see bad people into office. Some Zambians fail to interpret that nosense and they take it seriously. Surely how can UPND fail to fulfil promises when it hasn’t been in power? Isn’t that madness by this woman? She is just embarrassing her family.

  5. When God wants to recall a person, He first makes that person mad. Mumbi Phiri is about to be recalled by God. Can I ask that ‘cow’ a question? She says Southern Province voted overwhelmingly for HH in the January 20, 2015, Presidential by-election, my question to this silly cow is, where in Nothern and Luapula Provinces did HH win? If you are able to answer this question, then Zambia will respect you. You have to know that Texas is one of the richest States in the USA and what is the occupation of the citizens of that State? Animals, particularly cattle. What is wrong with Southern Province citizens owning cattle, therefore, silly tribalistic woman. Zambia is not for Bembas alone, silly woman. Repent Mumbi. This is why you failed lamentably in Kenya as High Commissioner. Repent. Today’s politics is not practiced by dunces like you.

  9. Much do we appreciate what PF is doing, that doesn’t mean it is the best party in zambia. We have leaders in this nation that are fit to take over that position that has been given to u. This is what we say Tongas are not tribal people but we have people who think zambia is theirs are the ones who are tribal. Who told mumbi that CB, Lusaka, Eastern, Northern, Central etc is for PF. Zambians Wake up.

  13. Guy Scott was impressed with the herdsmen in Namwala and exclaimed “this is the richest place in Zambia”. In other words he saw what mumbi Phiri and those talking about “Kachema not ruling Zambia” do not see. Scott saw value in cattle and how they can transform the country’s economy. Ask Botswana! PF has eyes abut can not see the value of our God given resources. That is why Zambia is always getting loans and majoring in the minors.

  14. Mumbi phiri if you are not a satanist, you should know that Jesus was referred to as The Son of David and that David was the only human who was said to be after God’s own heart over and above David being a great king and soldier. David was a sheperd or kachema by by up bringing not a stupid drunkard. Be wise Mumbi.

  20. IF WE ARE TO SAY MUMBI WITH LUNGU SHOULD ONLY BE VOTED BY THEIR FELLOW STREET VENDERS SINCE THAT IS THEIR BUSINESS AND THEY COME FROM STREETS. ON THE OTHER SIDE WE SAY, HICHILEMA AND ALL UPND TO BE VOTED BY FARMERS, AND THOSE WHO WORK IN SHOPPING MALLS SINCE THESE ARE THEIR AREAS OF OPERATIONS, WHO CAN WIN. IT IS ONLY THAT YOU MUMBI YOU WERE BORN A FOOL AND YOU WILL NEVER IMPROVE. GOD BLESS THE FARMERS AND ALL HARD WORKERS AND NOT THEIVES LIKE MUMBI. SHE IS A MARRIED PROSTITUTE.

  25. Mwaiche Mumbi we are better that way, if you associate UPND to headsmen because headsmen really cares for their folk as they lead them to the green pasture for them to fade nicely. It is that Sheppard we are looking for in our beloved Zambia who has the heart to lead the folk whether in a very challenging way until they all fade nicely get back in their kraal and if one misses he rush back in the bush until he finds it not IMWE. who doesn’t have heart for others. A BIG SHAME ON U IT SIMS YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY. YOU CAN NOT ENTICE US TO VOTE FOR THE MOST CORRUPT PEOPLE NEVER NOT ANY MORE. IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE WE ARE EVEN WISHING FOR ANOTHER BYE ELECTION BECAUSE WE FILL WE CAN WAIT FOR 2016.

  26. You see this is where I find UPND to be “caught napping” for they want to be civil amidst all this incivility! Just imagine had the attack emanated from anyone in UPND, PF would have been screaming that UPND has insulted all kateka’s bang’ombe muchalo! Maybe UPND needs to recruit cadres able to exchange punch for punch!

  27. How do you compare meat to millie meal. Nshima is our staple food with no substitute. It is essential and taken by the poorest of the poor as well as the richest of the rich in Zambia. You can not say the same for beef or meat. Ask UNIP on what happened 1986 concerning millie meal. I did not expect this kind of utterance from this woman. I’m disappointed.

    DO NOT INSULT OR UTTER ANY EVIL WORDS. DO NOT FIGHT OR DEFEAT EVIL WITH EVIL.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IF IT MEANS GOING YOUR DESIRED WAY PLEASE GO.

  35. Trible politics cannot be condoned in Zambia. There is no master Trible in Zambia. No matter how qualified & intelligent a person can & because is not a bemba is not fit to stand as president. Then what is the point of unity? Zambia is zambia because of the 73 tribes. Shame on this uncultured obsolete mother of 7 children. Who are you to start dividing Zambia? Don’t incite violence. No genuine zambia is interested in such talks.
