EXPELLED Patriotic Front Central Committee members Chishimba Kambwili and Mwenya Musenge have teamed up with United Progressive Party (UPP) leader Saviour Chishimba and have gone to Northern Province ahead of the today’s “Ukusefya Pa Ng’wena” traditional ceremony at Paramount Chief Chitimukulu’s palace.
Mr Musenge, who is former Copperbelt Minister and Chimwemwe Member of Parliament said that the trio will today attend the traditional ceremony.
“We are proceeding to “Ukusefya Pa Ng’wena” today with ba Kambwili na Saviour Chishimba,” Mr. Musenge said yesterday.
Mr. Kambwili and Mr. Musenge’s “apparent” campaign trail to Northern Province follows a recent visit to Southern Province traditional leaders and Central Province were the duo visited the incarcerated UPND president Hakainde Hichilema at Mukobeko Maximum prison in Kabwe on Thursday afternoon.
On their way from Southern Province, both Mr. Kambwili and Mr Musenge visited UPND sympathiser Obvious Mwaliteta at his residence in Kafue following his acquittal.
Mr. Musenge said the traditional leaders from Southern Province had forgiven Mr. Kambwili following his physical and verbal apology to the Tonga speaking people on Wednesday at Chief Moonze’s palace in Monze.
“The Chief gave him a go ahead they cleared him, they forgave him and they took him as one of their children and he was free. “After being cleared, told that he was free he assured the chiefs that immediately he was going to visit HH that was how we found ourselves at Mukobeko,”
Mr. Musenge said. He said the meeting was attended by Chief Moonze, Habasonde, Chikanta and Choma.
Meanwhile, a video has gone viral in which former Information and Broadcasting Service minister Chishimba Kambwili openly attacks President Edgar Lungu calling him “a man with a very bad heart” and that he regrets campaigning for him countrywide to an extent of even getting sick.
“The man in State House today is scared, scared to the effect that you know we may hear very soon that they are suspecting that those monkeys at State House want to stand in 2021. So they will start arresting monkeys if they are not very careful.
“And I want to apologize to the people of Zambia that had I known this is the behaviour of the man that I went to campaign the whole Zambia end up very sick I was not going to do it. The man is got a bad heart,” Mr. Kambwili said.
