GBM gestures to the people gathered at the Lwiindi traditional ceremony in Dundumwezi

United Party for National Development (UPND) Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has visited the famous Dundumwezi constituency in Southern province.

 

Dundumwezi is one of the most remote constituencies in Zambia and has received little development. The roads are in a deplorable state and the infrastructure in general is nothing to write home about.

 

In the August 11 electionselections, the people of this constituency showed their anger by giving the ruling PF candidate Edgar Lungu just 200 plus votes against over 30, 000 for the opposition UPND candidate Hakainde Hichilema.

 

When the UPND second-in-command visited the constituency on Saturday, he was given a thunderous welcome, with the people of Dundumwezi further presenting GBM with gifts of cattle.

 

GBM was a Guest of honour at the Lwiindi traditional ceremony in Chief Chikankata’s area, in the constituency.

 

The Lwiindi Traditional ceremony of the Tonga people is an annual festival of thanks giving. Lwiindi means thanks giving for the harvests. These thanks are directed to Tonga ancestors, especially the first Chief, Monze Mukulukulu. It is believed that Monze Mukulukulu was blessed with wisdom, was a rain maker and could eradicate diseases.The Tonga people would travel long distances to come and seek his advice. Before they spoke to him, they would present him with traditional hoes (maamba) made from smelted iron.

 

GBM and his entourage paid homage to the Chief and donated some animals.

 

He was accompanied by Dundumwezi MP Edgar Singombe, Mazabuka MP Gary Nkombo, Patrick Mucheleka and UPND party officials.

  1. This shows you that there is nothing tribal about the Southern province people. If Lungu was not a failure and did perform his work very well they would have voted for him. Just look at Lungu’s campaign messages. It’s all about HH and GBM and the threats to them rather than developing Zambia.

    • Oh, there is no tribalism in Dundumwezi?

      Tell the people in Dundumwezi to ask UPND to go for a conversion, and request them to vote for GBM and ask HH to stand down.

      After that exercise, get all the reaction comments and actions from Ndundu then come back here and tell us that the Ndundu people are not tribal. At that point, we will hear you.

      Peace for Zambia

      • @pieces(fecal matter )for Zambia
        It is clear that what gives you sleepless nights and brain disorders is the fact that hh is the upnd president and that he is not your tribesman. We all know that you silly monkey has just been introduced to maize meal as not long ago, tute with kalembula was the only thing your dirty eyes could see on the table and no wonder your watery brain is filthy. To say the list, you are very stupid though the biggest blame goes to your mother for pooping you when you should have been born in a normal way like everyone of us. You are very irritating with your perpetual hate for Southerners.

    • Surely if you continue talking negatives about the Tongas and you want Zambia to get united and live as one people. How when every time you open your mouth just insults against Tongas. It is not good. Same applies to Tongas if when ever they open their mouths just insults against Bembas. Then do we expect living together? The answer is NO. So you die hard supporters of your political parties think critically and not supporting blindly you are the ones dividing the country and not HH, GBM, LUNGU, neither INONGE. Yourselves are the ones dividing this country. The hate speech of Kambwili surely is that not enough to divide the country. I mean lets live as one Zambian Family and not what is going on now.

  12. There is a big difference between GBM and RB. GBM embraces everybody regardless of where they come from. He also hails from Bemba Royal Establishment. Our traditional leaders have a CULTURE OF WELCOMING EVERYBODY. No wonder GBM is now a leader who is welcome in most parts of the country. RB is who they call a soosi. He was born and raised in Zimbabwe. He strongly believes in wako ni wako and thinks Zambians a fools. That is why Kaunda fired him as Minister of Foreign Affairs.He will die a lonely man because even his former concubines are now deserting him.

  13. I am surprised at the amount of hate that some Zambians target against us Tongas We now feel that we are second class citizens in this country of yours. I do not know what we have done to deserve this type of negativity. If it were not for good guys like GBM Mucheleka etc..we could have left this country of yours long time ago. I assume those that hate Tongas for no reason are just as bad as racists or Nazis. However if our presence in Zambia is making blocks like Kambwili uncomfortable we are acceptable to the idea of separating from Zambia.

  14. Tongas do not even think for a second about leaving this country,this is our heritage for we are the first setlers in this country.Read your history books and find out who came from where and when.Tongas are responsible and hard working, all we want is our country to develop and not getting poorer and poorer when the country is so blessed.People of dundumwezi are more sensible than the people in town who cant tell right from wrong,cant even predict that in the near future things will get worse,look at the recent hike in fuel prices where will this lead us? and some fool some where will be singing dununa reverse,what a nation.

  15. I hope both GBM and people of Dudumwenzi are being sincere in their relationship. From my point of view I don’t see any sincerity: it’s either one is using the other or they’re using each other to achieve some selfish interests. Suppose GBM was to pull through as president of UPND (which is possible but unlikely!), would he receive the same thunderous welcome and gifts? If that was to happen, some mistrust would come in and we would have a different reaction from the people of Dudumwezi. Therefore, GBM and the people of Dudumwenzi can go to bed and get between the bedsheets, but their relationship is nothing but prostitution!

    • What ever your may think because of your suspicions, GBM and the people of Dundmwezi are united in their fight against PF and the mediocrity of ECL. From your comment it is obvious that you were one of those dancing duna reverse without any political messages and you may have helped in rigging the results of the elections. GBM and the people of Dundumwezi are together and united in fighting such vices.

  21. I am sorry to say, but most Zambians are so primitive that it hurts. In 2012, there is a district in Ohio which gave Mitt Romney 0 as in zero votes. This is an an area probably about 10 times the size and population of Dundumwezi,,,,, 1000 times as developed but they still gave one guy zero votes. I have gone back to all reporting in the American media on this,,, just a single line and no big deal of claims of tribalism, racism or whatever vice or insults on the residents of this district. In fact most people don’t know about it and even if they did they would care less
    Zambians, please grow up and act for once civilized like the Christians you profess yourselves to be

  23. Let HH and GBM develop dudumwezi. Let them show the people of Zambia what they can contribute, do you see what Dangote is doing to this nation? Some of us have nothing to do with GBM visitation to dundu. Let them shower their praises on GBM, air lift him, whatever it takes to praise, we do not care.
