OPINION: M’membe’s ‘Gay’ Burden

Fred M’membe may have found out by now that politics is bigger than punching away political sentiments behind a keyboard.

In his a little over one week M’membe has had his once upon a time private life thrown into the public light at a lightning speed. He had to deal with a diplomatic incident that has claimed the political scalp of the Cuban ambassador Nelson Pages and the more damning revelations of his queer sexual orientation.

For many years speculation has hit the mill that M’membe belongs to the queer type but there has been neither denial nor confirmation of the status quo.

Former Republican President Rupiah Banda once sensationally put it, in a rare fit of anger that people that were queer and morbid had ganged up against him. There was no credible denial further fuelling speculation of M’membe’s sexual orientation.

The problem is not whether or not M’membe is a homosexual but that he is getting a bit of the medicine that he over the years dished to others. Late President Frederick Chiluba went to the grave with M’membe having consistently branded him a thief. Did not Levy Mwanawasa also suffer the cabbage treat until the two kissed and made up? Need we say anything about Michael Sata being labelled a dangerous Bemba tribalist?

The point is M’membe went about cherry picking whoever he wanted to scandalize and the Zambian public simply swallowed his news diet unquestioningly. But now he has found himself on the receiving end of the monster he helped create. It can only get worse with erstwhile friend Wynter Kabimba confessing to their near love affair.

Naturally the microscope can only get tighter on M’membe and his socialist wannabe gang who in truth are sworn capitalists in practice.

    We Zambians have core values that make us who we are.among other things we have never welcomed unnatural sexual orientations like ‘Gay’.
    If what Mr Kabimba has disclosed is true then I suggest that Mr M’membe puts his home in order before eyeing the highest office of our land.

    which one was better kaunda,chiluba,mwanawansa,rupia,sata if u can,t choose forget about the coming president

  28. bmabuya

    Kabimba and mmembe should not insult each other through the media, its obvious that they did not agree on another wrong move they were planning, soon or later it shall be known. I suggest that these old politians retire from politics and give chance to young men than embarrassing themselves in public.
