UNZA Don Says Attempt To Impeach Pres. Lungu A Waste Of Time

Political analyst Alex Ng’oma says it is unnecessary for Members of Parliament to move a motion to impeach President Edgar Lungu, saying he has not committed any impeachable offence.

Dr Ng’oma says the people calling for the impeachment of the President should give constitutional reasons why they are eager to impeach him.

He has since advised Members of Parliament to take national issues seriously.

And Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) Executive Director Mweenge Chimfwembe says lawmakers championing the impeachment of the President should tell the Zambian people why they want to impeach him or make them understand.

    Impeach the president! These’re figment of imaginations by people who’re hell bent on bringing chaos and discord in the country let them be charged for treason before calamity befalls us

    You must be extremely stupid not to see the many things that has gone wrong, from fire machine’s, mukula scandals, ambulances, purging of tongas and Lozis from civil service to ubomba mwibala slogan etc. Should that motion be allowed in parliament, the man will go down. There are so many PF mp,s who has been sidelined at the expese of corrupt mmd mps like Lusambo and the thugs, do you think they can let an opportunity pass if its presented them? the only thing you can do for now is console yourselves like you doing, otherwise even himself he knows, it can be his end. Try not to prevent the process, you will regret for the rest of your pathetic life’s.

      Yaba ba Topcat. debate the issue why call those who do not see things your as stupid. No need to call anyone stupid. All the things you have listed are not impeachable true or false.

        Mwila landa fye i chisungu think also.Breach of the republican constitution is an impeachable offence and personally i have lost count of the number of times Lungu has breached the Constitution from failing to hand o ver power to the Speaker after a petition had been filed challenging his presidency to his recent appointment of an incompetent Constitutional Judge.Tell us something else like the need for stability (which he is tinkering with) or something like that otherwise there are more than enough grounds.

        • Wise me

          The fact that you can’t remember the number of times impeachable offences tells us that you are an egoistic liar. You see visions which others don’t. Do you think the UPND MPs would keep qiet

    • sedou

      Total hearsay why are you so desperate to attain power? Don’t be copycats from others. The situation in zambia is different from Mugabe and ‘Zuma who investigated and found wanting
      Problem is the opposition harbours a lot of hate for the President.

      I can’t agree with u more.

    Topcat u ar sound so tribal, ar u sure Tonga’s and Lozi’s ar being purged from work? Don’t say things out of tribal be factual, u can say other things such as corruption I can agree with u not dat one, wen making comments on political issue let it not base on tribe but serve the interest of Zambian pipo.

  13. Tom London

    Who is this chap called mulongoti ? If I may ask .
    If my memory saves me right he should be some former minister during the mmd so a former lawmaker yourself what cases are treasonable .
    J Zuma was shown the door in South Africa on allegations of corruption . The same thing is happing here in Zambia which among other things is what Topcat is trying to highlight . mulogoti you must be sensible enough .
    This issue about the Tongas you keep on bringing up is a clear reflection of stupidity on your part mulongoti . maybe you are a former mental patient and so you should go back to Chainama for more observations . naiwe wine mulongoti niweebo koswe mu mpoto .

  14. mulongoti

    Ba maker youre right mwandini we shud not waste time on this impeachment issue when you’re employed as a manager the first things you’d do are for yourself as a remberance that when I used to work I did this and that if hh becomes president it will be more worse than we think kaili he’s a seasoned sting thief he knows when and where to steal so iwe chi topcart be careful with that big mouth of yours you’re just trying to paint the wrong picture you can’t win elections like that very tribal tonga bull lets just count more years and see if you will win by telling lies to the nation

    KAMPYONGO ON PRESIDENT LUNGU’S IMPEACHMENT

    “It is a treasonable offence to organize people to impeach the Republican President”, Stephen Kampyongo tells Opposition Members.

    A named UPND Member of Parliament is going round trying to persuade Patriotic Front Members of Parliament to support a motion to impeach President Edgar Lungu once it is presented in Parliament, Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has disclosed.

    In an interview this afternoon, Mr Kampyongo has since warned UPND members to stop inciting people to rise against Government because it was criminal and they will be arrested in no time.

    “UPND are known to be perpetual losers in elections, therefore they will not ascend to power by using dubious means or back door, but through a ballot paper”, said Kampyingo.

    Mr Kampyongo said he was not surprised that UPND can go to such an extent because they were desperate for power.

    He said investigations have since been instituted and anyone found wanting will not be spared, but face the full wrath of the law.
    “Mark my words, i shall soon be ordering the arrest of some UPND members including Garry Nkombo for planing to impeach President Lungu. What Mr Nkombo should know is that it is a treasonable offence in our country to organise MPs to impeach the elected President. Police officers will soon be arresting these thugs planing to impeach the head of state”, warned Mr Kampyongo this afternoon ( yesterday)

    This will never happen in Zambia, those calling for that are not true Christians, they want to use wrong ways to state House, wait and 2021 my vote go to ecl, MPs calling for that don’t represent us the people of Zambia but want to advance their selfish reasons, Zambians let us be careful, look at their constituencies no meaningful development is happening, in Parliament always they are always politiking, pls that is not what we voted you for,change for Good

  23. Summer salt

    Impeachment dreaer, Zambia is not and will never be a ka ntemba so if Zambia was to develop, let’s not think of changing presidents like uniform saying this uniform is dirty, so we put on another one! No, think deep dreamer don’t take what is on your mind on public media. Whether the current government is stealing or not it will never be your business, so find a job or ask for a capital and be busy. We need peace, love and tranquillity. Leave the President alone, and the issues regarding corruption is for the would be next President to point out like mwanawasa did to ftj. What happens in Zimbabwe stays in Zimbabwe, so is South Africa and Congo. Then the tribal language is also irritating and shows your stupidity and that you’re not part of zam tribe. Go to school and lean social studies Mr top cat; we love you!

  24. Chanchima

    He who alleges proves. Challenge those championing impeachment to show you the evidence Dr Ng’oma then as an academic you can conclude if it is waste of time. An otherwise brilliant British judge Lord Denning ruined his career due to premature decision on a case involving a black accused whom Denning condemned before examining the evidence. Intelligence and knowledge are not the same thing.

    The opposition has run out of ideas and resort to behave like mad people. The resident is working anyway. Ifintu ECL.

    You fools opposition we will win you 2021 and beat you with shabokos. No impeachment will be allowed.

  28. Village Head man

    All comment for presidential impeachment are tribal and hate for losing 5 times in a roll. Stop tribal politics and look at all Zambians as one. Remember one Zambia one nation. The people who brought in this slogan are still living.

    I want to become a police ,now the question is wen will they start to recruit?.

  31. Love your neighbor

    Dear Mr Mulongoti Sir, please just try to respect other tribes, especially the ones you hate most, coz the way you always write about these tribes shows how much bitter you are towards these tribes. Last time you were talking about the church, then how are you going to quench tribalism with all that hatred, I always say not all Tongas are interested in politics but the moment you just say Tongas,you include even those that are not interested in politics, serious divisions begin with such bitter atterances. Please think twice.
