Socialist Party President Dr Fred M’membe has revealed that his grandfather’s mother was white.

Dr M’membe said because of that he is not a tribalist, however, It is crass dishonest, ignorance and stupidity for anyone to accuse him of tribalism.

He says his ethnic and even racial, composition make it very difficult and unrealistic for him to be a tribalist or a racist, “my grandfather’s mother was white.”

“I directly originate and hail from ten ethnicities and four provinces of our country. And indirectly, I have ethnic links with all the provinces of Zambia. This is my fortune or misfortune!” Dr M’membe said.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page obtained by Zambian Eye, he said both his parents from both sides paid a very high price for the independence and oneness of this country.

Dr M’membe however boasts that not less than fifty per cent of the first cabinet of Zambia were his relatives.

“I have fought against Bemba tribalism, Lozi tribalism, Ngoni or Nsenga or Chewa tribalism! I have fought against racism. And I will continue to do so for the remaining part of my life”, he said.

Dr M’membe said pointing out tribal inclined decisions and actions of the United Party for National Development (UPND) government of Hakainde Hichilema and denouncing them is not being a tribalist.
