Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba

Wynter Kabimba has told Zambian Eye that the pace at which people are leaving other political parties to join his Rainbow Party will only get better to what he likens as a Tsunami.

In an exclusive interview, Kabimba who is the president of Rainbow Party said with time the mass movement of people joining his party will be like a Tsunami and will demonstrate to the doubting Thomases that his party is the next government.

Kabimba who is former Minister of Justice and Chief Executive Officer for Patriotic Front (PF) explained that in just two months from the time Rainbow Party was formed, the party has formed structures in all the 10 provinces of Zambia. He said the party has continued to receive members from the ruling Patriotic Front and other political parties.

“The Rainbow Party has given a lot of hope to many Zambians and hence the desire by people you are hearing joining the party. And what you see can only get better. Wait for two months you will see a Tsunami,” Kabimba explained.

He said currently the party is doing a lot of work, revising the constitution to ensure that it conforms to the national ideals that the party subscribes. He said the party would like to have a constitution that stands a test of time.

Kabimba explained that a manifesto which will be supported by a social and economic programme was also being worked on. He explained that he hopes all this work will be completed by end of February in readiness for the party launch whose date will be communicated.

He said the interim national leadership of Rainbow Party will be announced at the party launch.

Kabimba who was instrumental in ushering PF into government in 2011 said Rainbow Party will hold a People’s Assembly (Congress) before the 2016 General election to elect leaders that will steer the party to the polls.

  1. …I don’t know for one reason or the other I strongly feel that this Rainbow will be very strong. I have got a feeling that Zambian people will jump on this rainbow. I don’t know why, but I think they.

    • I doubt, Hon Kabimba failed to give us just a draft constitution and the man is a boss not a leader, then he has a cartel tag on him.

      He has a bigger mountain to climb, but he will disadvantage HH somehow.
      The Post won`t manage to sell him.

    • The so called defections are from the parallel structures Kabimba organised in PF.While in PF,Kabimba had plan B which was heavily backed by the cartel.It is therefore not surprising that the majority of his defectees are from PF.In all this situation the main person who should get worried is HH in that the Bantu Botatwe vote will be split in 2016 between Rainbow Party and UPND.PF wil be smiling back to State House come 2016.

  3. @Joe you are saying most of the defections are from the PF and you go on to say ‘In all this situation the main person who should get worried is HH in that the Bantu Botatwe vote will be split in 2016 between Rainbow Party and UPND’

  5. To me, Mr Kabimba sounds very scary and has signs of self fimo-fimo.

  6. Kabimba is splitting the PF not UPND. Bantu Botatwe have really never supported each other especially Central province which had either voted MMD or PF. So the party being split here is PF. Whoever Lungu drops might run to rainball party with his supporters. UPND will remain intact but will breed people from MMD. UPND has never known kabimba and therefore has no effect on the party. However, I believe Kabimba is over rating his chances, There will be NO ksunami! The battle is still between PF and UPND and with mistakes already coming from Edga regarding the constitution, things will soon hot up

  8. How does he revise the people’s constitution alon without the people or grassroots. And why equating the puported exodus or defections to a tsunami desustor! Will he like it when such an influx engulfs him? It will be the war of armagedon

  10. We want rainbow party to be popular because it is closer to UPND such that when a 50%+1 is enshrined, no party will making it in the first round but RP & UPND can join hands and flash out the boat.

  13. HH will by God’s grace lead Zambia from the shakels of poverty experienced by visionless PF guys. Edgar Lungu is just yapping he has no economical capacity to transform Zambia into a haven of rest, free from Corrumption which urshed him in power. Kabimba just like edgar have no plans beyond their empty pockets. These fellows were built by Sata’s malicious language of tribalism against HH and nothing else. Even now the only way PF can get votes is through tribal certments which Frank Bwalya and Chama has already started in their 2016 campaigns. There are no issues to address apart from regional politics. Zambians work up and vote for quality leadership otherwise poverty levels are increasing each day PF rules. Time will tell.
