OPINION: Mumbi Phiri’s Conjugal Calvary

The cat and mouse battle between Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema and Patriotic Front deputy General Secretary Mumbi Phiri is strange. Notwithstanding that the bad blood is as old as anyone can remember. The two have never liked each other and this dislike goes beyond politics. Phiri is the brainchild behind the now infamous Kachema (herdsman) tag that has stuck on Hichilema that somehow he has miraculously turned into a positive vibe. However what is even stranger are the insinuations about the Mumbi Phiri’s conjugal deficiencies.

The debate about her getting or not getting pregnant has gone on for too long. Do our politics really need this kind of low game? Phiri herself of course is not one to hesitate in dishing out as much as she gets and has bluntly gone for UPND aligned media that has been making a meal out of the pregnancy spectacle. How about the taunt about Phiri not being ready to get on with Hichilema as she is married but could have taken up the challenge had she not been a self-respecting wife. Certainly the purveyors of this sick debate should halt it and just focus on the merits and de-merits of the imminent political battle ahead in the July 26 mayoral election. Certainly dwelling on conjugal deficiencies may not win anyone elections.

Has she not proven her productivity to the world with her well known documented family life? Why would anyone want someone pregnant just to prove a political point? Certainly our politics can do better than this bedroom banter that we have been reduced to. Understandably the heat in the run up to the July 26 mayoral elections is getting higher and it could get worse for the leading political contenders. It will not help any political players to hide behind ghost fora to discredit political opponents. May the best candidate win!

    There are so many women With conjugal deficiency holding political offices today but are well respected because of the manner they conduct themselves. Joyce Nonde for instance has never been entangled in such battles. Tresa May of UK is another but serving decently. Unless Mumbi Phiri begins to behave humanly people will not stop throwing mud on her.

    u cant be kachema if u r poor.beef come from cows,milk & shoes.leave H.H alone if u r jealous u wil never progress in life.

    what kind of politics is this? thats y some political parties will just remain in opposition cos they hv nothing to tell the voters.i for one can not vote for a leader who can sink so low and start talking about bedroom issues when we hv so many issues to talk about. that’s cheap politics to say the least.

    • OMG

      I cant belive what am reading,do pipo still insuit..why go this far for the sck of upnd and pf,No lets not be like that we need to put God first then let everything follow…


    From today onwards, I will never mock or provoke H.H because he’s a great, good and also a peaceful man.


    I we chi kopala, you are very silly and stupid! Why are busy supporting that fool prositute ofyours mumbi phiri? Let me tell you without any hesitation, satanyoko and umusula obe, you are moththerfucker.idiot.


      Shi is like your mother Chi mwila Chi chikala

  9. ndamwumfwa maisa

    Kopala that is a reason why you are dull, we Zambians don’t feed from kachema (HH) ‘s pockets ,just advise that kachema to talk about real issues otherwise even his cows will loose confidence in him.Surely weather mumbi Phiri is pregnant or not or found on bed with a man enjoying her sex life it is her choice not HH or Zambians we don’t benefit anything from that.kopala let me tell u this and get it in your ears HH will never be a president in Zambia maybe advice him to propose mumbi other than him being jelous when her friend is being ride on Maybe he can make her pregnant so that he can announce to his cows not to Zambians, us we listen to developmental issues that affects us period.

      I have never heard nor read about HH talk about Mumbi Phiri’s ability or inability to get pregnant. But I have read several times about Mumbi Phiri announcing that she will get pregnant. I believe that a woman of Mumbi Phiri’s age and standing in society should never reduce herself to this level. By the way, why had she been suspended from PF party activities? I hear the reason had to do with her lack of self-respect and embarrassing behaviour towards a very important person in her party and government. Mumbi Phiri is no stranger to this kind of conduct, so I am not really surprised.


    I we CHI maisa! Satanyoko stop mocking and saying bad things about H.H ok? He is not your relative and he will never be. Idiot chikala.

  33. Jomwa

    Country men please we should this platform in good manner ,but what we must know is that outside politics each individual has his or her own life to lead please tell people what could make people to decide which party to go for and we must also know that one government per time .why should we talk about someone’s private issues ? We need something which can convince people to vote for the good party to lead us.we can’t be all in government. Again ourselves we are the government so we must consider the comments to help our leaders coz one day they will also be leading us and they will fail in one way or the other.

  34. Hammer

    May be a satanist / Masson is not happy that Mumbi kept her pregnancy. If really she is pregnant !! These satanist whatvthey want is want is kill kill sacrifice abort…

  35. John

    As long as Mumbi is around we all have a chance of being f*cked good and proper. On a serious note all zambians are f*cked now. Vote with our heads not on tribal lines…..PLEASE

    Zambia can only develop if we change the nature of our customers politics…. When need politicians who are bringing people together instead of the dividing them,instead of addressing the problems that the country has they are insulting each other…… . And that is the sign of political immaturity
