Mumbi Phiri says Chief Mukuni is not a Chief, and that HH is a puppet of the West

Patriotic Front Deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri says Chief Mukuni of Southern Province is Hakainde Hichilema’s business partner and not a traditional leader.
And Mumbi has described HH, who has been in detention for over a month, as a puppet of Western countries who is soliciting for sanctions against his own country.
Mumbi was speaking at a media briefing this morning (Saturday) to respond to the Zambia Center for Inter party Dialogue (ZCID)’s call for dialogue between President Edgar Lungu and HH.
“The Zambia Center for Inter-party Dialogue yesterday (Friday) held a press briefing at which they reveled that they had written to the President to call for dialogue, peace and reconciliation in the nation. They also stated that they had written to the Prison authorities for permission to go and engage HH on dialogue. Let me correct something here, if there is a person who needs dialogue and reconciliation with himself, it is Hakainde Hichilema. He needs to be at peace with himself and at peace with the world. ZCID, we are calling on you to help him come to terms with reality,” Mumbi said.

Chief Mukuni

“While it is not within their mandate per se, ZCID should also counsel their Royal Highnesses like…in fact he is not even Royal Highness, he is Chief Mukuni. He is more of HH’s business partner and UPND member than he is an impartial traditional leader who must see all of us as Zambians. Even Mumbi Phiri even if she is from Muchinga, I should be looked at by Chief Mukuni as his own child but what we have seen is that even his wife is in the forefront even raising a symbol of UPND. At lest where I come from, Chief Chitimukulu’s wife can not do that and where I am married, Chief Gawa Undi and Mpezeni can not do that, so it’s unfortunate that Chief Mukuni is coming into the political arena,” she said.
Mumbi said Mukuni’s behaviour justified the reason for not conferring him with the status of Paramount Chief.
“No wonder if you look at how many Paramount chiefs we have in Zambia, we have Paramount Chief Gwa Undi, we have Paramount Chief Mpezeni, we have Paramount Chief Chitimukulu and the Litunga of Western Province. If you go through the history, you are going to realise that these people were bestowed by the title of Paramount Chiefs because the colonialist recognised that they were very organised. Now I am wondering, is this why even our colonialists didn’t recongnise Mukuni? He is not even a senior Chief, I think he is just a Sub-Chief. Did the colonialists foresee that his behaviour will be like this? This is a question to him. I therefore urge ZCID to also speak to the Chief,” she said.


Mumbi accused HH of being a “Puppet of the West” who would do anything just to become President.
“HH would rather punish Zambians with hunger just to become a President and it is by God’s providence that he is not a
President. HH is a puppet of the West and mark this puppet of the West’ in the style of Zimababwe’s Morgan Tsvangirai who was globe trotting calling for sanctions against his own country and this is what we have seen UPND doing. We know that those who funded him heavily needed their value for money but sadly for them they funded a losing, miserable candidate,” said Mumbi.

  4. Message to this man mumbi phiri,if you think chief mukuni is not a chief then it’s fine leave him alone and go to those you know to be chiefs because they never said anything over arresting of HH which shows that they are all pf business partners,and I wonder why you mumbi when ever you talk you always say tribal words and try to shift that to upnd,and a good leader can’t start comparing chiefs as if you are in class leaning History koikoi topic

  5. Mumbi Phiri…who is bitch,harlot,zombie surely to start demeaning/denouncing the the chief and Edgar Lungu allows it this manner?Iwe ka Mumbi wishibe ati one day PF Party yenu tayakekalile so nokokutumpa kukapwa including positions you hold necipuba cinobe ci Fr Frank Bwalya ala mukasebana umuyenshiku.Do not just talk rubbish/nonsense for the sake of pleasing your boss.Icilipamunobe ecilipali iwe and my conclusion you are a very foolish woman tawafundwa

  6. Kachovi would i be correct if i said what u have written is coming from hh himself?the problem with u is that u completely lack objectivity each one expresses ones opinion

    May 14, 2017 at 11:22 am

    • Surprise you would not be correct unless if I was in HH’s political party. You would still not be correct if I was an UPND cadre. Not everyone condemning Mumbi is UPND. It is you who lack objectivity. Politicians have their speeches written for them before they read them. If Lungu did not know what his SG said then he is out of touch with his party.if he can’t discipline Mumbi as he has done several times then we know what Mumbi said has Lungu’s blessing.

  7. Another big insult going to southern, central and north-western that they are disorganised that is why they have no paramount chiefs

  8. Indeed a dark cloud is still hovering over this nation,how do you unify a people coming from a bitter devisive and acrimonious election with such vibes from people in leadership?Like i always say never allow the riff-raffs,rabble-rousers near the instruments of power,cause once they chance them its the masses who suffer…

  9. Really! These are the words of a leader! I pity Lungu for not being in sync with his team that is supposed to help raise his esteem among Zambians of all walks of life as he allows “sewage” commentaries from the likes of Mumbi Phiri and Frank Bwalya! What does the president then expect from Chief Mukuni and his subjects? This shows weak leadership in Lungu and in respectable societies all those not in line with “his wishes for a peaceful Zambia” would long have been history in his ranks! The wedge of division is in PF’s hands and is being driven deeper by those in the party to cause hurt, hate and, further divisions! If I may ask as to level of education attained by both Frank Bwalya and Mumbi Phiri they seem not to exploit it to enhance wisdom! I declare that Lungu abandons his song of unity for as long as he has the team serving in his administration and because he has supported the divisions being experienced in the country its best he acknowledges the buck stops at him!

  11. Mrs Mumbi Phiri is just a tragedy to both her party PF and Zambia.
    With her language she has managed to make the PF and President Lungu more unpopular!

  12. This riff ruff called Mumbi Phiri needs to wash her mouth with soap and bleach. Her words are meant to steal, kill, and destroy. Just like the devil himself. Guess what mumbi and your minions, no weapon formed against God’s children shall not prosper!!! period.

  13. Mrs. Mumbi Phiri just confirm that HH is a signatory to the IMF Board!

  14. Lungu will be naive to listen to this foolish and uneducated woman who cant see beyond her nose. Lungu should listen to the voices of Reason from the 16 Zambian Dignitaries who wrote to him requesting him to release HH unconditionally. From abroad 28 Dignitaries and govts requested the same. Lungu should be careful and stop listening to empty tins like Mumbi Phiri,Kampyongo,KZ etc. These Thugs and Criminals will land Lungu into bigger problems. Lungu should Release HH unconditionally and unharmed. To unite,reconcile and heal the Zambian Nation Lungu needs to allow the Hearing of the Petition. Once the Petition is heard in Court and the Court declares him the Winner of the 2016 Election and duly elected President peace will be restored in Zambia. Lungu needs to gain Legitimacy from Zambians and the International Community. He cannot achieve this without resolving the Petition issue.The root cause of heightened Tension,Disharmony and Political instability in Zambia today is the Flawed,Disputed and Petitioned Election.Period.

  15. Such bitterness by people in leadership is what is polarizing the nation. This is not leadership material.

  16. “When the going gets tough, the tough must get going, especially when our leaders have become misleaders and mentors have become tormentors. Freedom of expression is today met with suppression and oppression. As we preach peace, we must not shut our eyes and mouths to injustice or we shall be known by our children as the generation of hypocrites.

  17. @The Political Sycophant

    Your Southern, Western and North Western axis will ever remain just a fantacy.

    For your own information, Tongas dont have a King despite being a large ethnic group not that they are disorganised but because like Nsengas and the bantu botatwe grouping, they have never had a King since they left Jerusalem as united kingdom of Judah.

    Tongas will never be ruled by your Litunga because he is not from the lineage of King David; he came from South Africa fleeing Shaka’s madness whereas Tongas came from Jerusalem, Israel with Nsengas, Lenjes and Shonas of Northern Zimbabwe.

    These tribes listed above are blood brothers make no mistake. Tongas are the tribe of Benjamine while Nsengas are the tribe of Yudah and will produce a King that will rule a reunited Kingdom of Judah which includes Tongas.

    So stop fantasising about the Litunga ever presiding over Tongas in your fantacy trinity country it will never happen he is not a Jew. Tongas are above these small earthly Kingdoms.

    Be educated my frend.

  18. The truth is that chief should be condemned jst lyk any other person. Remember dat for hh to become president he needs support frm all chiefdoms. Chiefs are traditional leaders and nt political leaders so they are there for wisdom and counsel bt if he behaves lyk dat then he is atracting flies on his own body. Remember i told u dat hh is nt the first politician 2b lockedup may be hee is the first frm chief mukuni. Let him consult other chiefs frm other regions why they used to remain neutral in such circumstances! There is no justification in saying “hh is a son of his soil” others also hv their own sons. Its jst lyk some unwise parents who defend their children in the neighbourhood even when their child wld be wrong!

  20. Mumbi Phiri is speaking as if Zambians have forgotten that the crooks in the PF which includes Mumbi Phiri stole votes with the ECZ during last election.It is only an illiterate chief who was not enlightened would consider the legitimacy of the likes of Mumbi Phiri.HH is a rue leader who has not allowed civil war in Zambia for twice winning the election and twice the thieves dribbled him.Chief Mukuni is not happy that an innocent son of the soil is being incarcerated for no wrong doing. Zambia needs chiefs who are principled and fearless like chief Mukuni.
    When we hear chifs in Zambia speak in support of the PF, we always forgive them for lack of knowledge of the bad governance brought to Zambia by the likes of Mumbi Phiri. Can Mumbi Phiri explain why people at ECZ are resigning their jobs? Can she explain what Chavula did with our votes in 2015? Who brought the Ugandan IT Specialist to Zambia and to help who in stealing votes? Can chief Mukuni be supporting your crooked failed governance? NO.

  22. Mumbi Phiri is an idiot. You are called to offer solutions and she just becomes antagonistic. Will she say she’s a leader who can bring peace to our country.
