OPINION: KAMBWILI HAS NO MORAL RIGHT TO WHINE ABOUT INSULTS

Zambia has seen a number of political rivalries over the years with the King Cobra versus Levy Mwanawasa perhaps ranking among the most vicious.

But now another modern day rivalry has taken root in the Zambian political space. Presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda and National Democratic Congress (NDC) party leader Chishimba are at each other’s throats.

Chanda, by nature a cool headed person seems to have blown up under incessant attacks from Kambwili who has never tired lumping the Presidential aide with innuendos.

It is not that Chanda has let out some expletives in a widely circulated telephone conversation with Kambwili that is surprising but that the Roan Member of Parliament is complaining about insults. It is a territory Kambwili should be as happy as a pig playing in mud.

Let us just say Kambwili complaining about anyone insulting him is like the pot calling the kettle black. Kambwili got as much as he rottenly gives.  Kambwili is used to picking easy targets and getting away with it. He takes pleasure in picking on easy targets that just soak in his venom. Does Kambwili really have the moral right to complain about insults? Is not his signature China Nyanyo ranting still trending?

Did Kambwili not confirm he was recording the conversation? Is the motive not clear from the outset? Chanda simply handed Kambwili his wish. He had been spoiling for a taped showdown and Chanda gladly gave it to him.

So what is the fuss about this funeral Kambwili wishes to stage?

    MY COUSINS!!!!! Recording a coversation with the sole purpose to gain POLITICAL MILAGE is not only IMMORAL but also UNDIGNIFIED for a person who is day and night dreaming of oneday becoming PRESIDENT of this nation. KASHIMBA CHIMBWILI , you can not sink lower than this. Rember kuli ba Mumbi Phiri you appologised over the issue of tissues.

      Kambwili has no respect for anyone. Not even the president. We dont like people like ck. He has no respect. The truth pains. Kano ene ukutuka abanankwe.

  19. Dr Fonicks

    These two acted unadultly. do they think we cherish unpalatable language ? when you are in public limelight, there must alwsys be some constraint whenever provoked. both of you are a disgrace to the nation. why do nt you tame your language

  20. jj

    but this article sounds like the one who wrote it is favouring Amos Chanda.
    though chanda nd kambwili ar all childish

  21. Biloko

    Where is the kateka in all this I miss supper Ken he would have allowed Chanda leave to go and exhaust the insults.It is not right for a public official to insult like he is in a tavern not withstanding the so called provocation. I grieve for tax paying Amos for insulting.

  22. Gunda

    The English adage, ‘Don’t argue with a fool… ‘,has vindicated itself on this!

  23. Umuntu kupepa

    GBM to rejoin PF in the coming few days. Let us pray for him so that PF members welcome him.

    Amos succumbed to temptation.He is normally cool unlike his adversay.However the phone conversation was between the two but one of them decided to air it for political gain.If you know you have no skeletons in the cupboard Amos just remain cool even under blatant accusations.Take a leaf from the the late FTJ.He never lost his cool amidst a barrage of accusations left right and center.It seems if CK became presido he will torment a lot of people.

    We don’t want wamafumo Ku stertehouse

    The presidential spokesman shouldn’t act like a politician! Kambwili is a politician but Chanda is not .

  27. Bmk

    Gentlemen!Gentlemen! Politics of insults is long gone with the old school.Is it too difficulty to be mature in politics? Both of you need each other for the well being of this country,region,Africa and World above.Stop being limited to your bellies.Think big,and focus beyond yourselves then all of us will smile.I wish God’s hand on both of you.We love you and need you in all aspect of life.

    • AMOS

      if Kambwili becomes president I would change my nationality and I would switch off Zambia if it was a switch mbolo yako Kambwili

      • KAMBWILI
