Wife Fetes Amos Chanda

Presidential Spokesman, Amos Chanda walked the traditional path with his wife Mable feting him for having been a good husband over the years.

Mable hosted the traditional ceremony known as “Amatebeto” at Manchinchi Gardens in Olympia Park.

The event drew attendance from Patriotic Front General Secretary Davies Mwila and Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba.

Amatebeto is a Bemba marriage ceremony held by the wife to celebrate her husband with a food feast and special guests, to thank the husband for respecting the marriage, for giving her children, and for keeping both families in harmony.

Icilanga Mulilo on the other hand is a pre-wedding or pre-marriage ceremony held by the wife in honour of the husband to showcase the kinds and types of foods from her family that he is likely to enjoy in his marriage.

    thats good banachanda

  2. ROKA.

    This supposed to take at his house, not a lodge.unZambian

    • C-General

      That’s true but I think nowadays things have been simplified or changed.
      I see 90% of these functions taking place at Lodges.
      e.g. in Ndola at Spree Guesthouse you see these events almost every weekend.

  3. Madiba

    Great wife makes a great husband.

  4. Razor

    He might be a good husband but useless spokesperson. The wife should earn him that he won’t be in that position forever and learn to humble himself.

    • CHARACTER WITNESS.

      Amos appears & conducts himself humbly BUT is not a push over by people with hidden agendas like this Razor

    • Daniel Banda

      Blunt razor. Out of context!

    I agree

  7. Zambian

    Ba Razor you’re just jealous, let the man enjoy his Matebeto, ifyo mwaletamo nifimbi. Learn to control yourself and separate ifya ma politics na private life.

  8. Zambian

    One thing we should know is that politics will always be there with or without Ba Amos, so let us not bring politics in any story that we see on this platform coz its not everyone who reads stories on Zambia Reports are carders, if you want to bring politics or comment on political issues, you check the political provision. Not on any story you read, its better you keep quite.

    • Dorothy

      Nice one ba Zambian its like now people want to eat politics, drink politics, dress politics and maybe walk politics as well as dance politics… Learn to comment right comments on right subjects.

  9. Januka

    Kwena ba Razor muli na jealous, and am sure you don’t even understand what matebeto is all about. Muzafa na jealous yanu. Everything its politics, pls give us a break.

  16. Kamata

    Let me see…. do I qualify for this? I remember last time she went to her parents for two days after we had a quarrel. Now… yaba! We shall wait and see.

  17. pamodzi

    Some people are just suffering from political diarrhoea, you just can’t see a thing until you add your smelling political diarrhoea. This is not how being in opposition is all about you can do better things. Well done Mrs Chanda but next time let it be in your mum’s house

  18. Mk

    Tradition is tradition, regardless of one’s position in society, political, religious affiliation. Thanks Bana chanda

  19. Advisor

    Chawama bashi Chanda. Congratulations!!! Little word of advice. Don’t listen to these hired jealous cadres. Just do your work and take care of your family. Bana Chanda mwabomba. Ndiye mwambo.

  20. Uwashele kumabula

    Though good thing but Amatebeto should have been done at his house. Takwali ifimbusa?

  21. Kamuzhazhi

    Good husband because he is working with the government and bringing lots of money? Why did she tebeta him all along or after his term? It’s just to show off that they are swimming in money and have no where to take it while, innocent Zambian are suffering.

    • Kamuzhazhi

      *why didn’t she tebeta him all along?

      • Iyee twaalafwa 😁😁

    Useless Amos at his worst ceremony with a group of demonic possessed nincompoops!

  32. Kifs

    Leadership starts at home then shared,thanks to our mother for love and care to the husband even to other people who is enjoying their marieges without being honoured for letting them learn from this that husband’s are to be respected.

  33. Master

    That’s gud bana chanda, I like it. Kwashala bana lungu ukutebeta bamundala.

  39. Michael Chileshe

    Ba ZimaNdola, so you think everyone who complains about issues not going well in the country is UPND? Why use insults all the time? You can not use civilised language to express your views?

    No money no matebeto,motebeto comes when you have enough money like bashi chanda na bana chanda that shows they love each anther because money talks,but ifwe kukoboni we cant to that because we are poor we dont have money to make matebeto with our wife the money we have is for lent,school feels,food, and iyamabin.

  42. Zambian

    But kwena Zambia nayonayika, people y can’t you just accept that your friends are ruling and wait for your time to come. Otherwise you who are busy insult Amos let me ask you a question. Will you all go to State House when your so called President win the elections? 2, will you all become Ministers or Government officials? Will your life’s change instantly from bad to good? Muleyibepafye, a politician is a politician, they will concentrate on pleasing their outside masters who fund them during campaigns imwe na ine kuchululukafye tata na mayo. As we speak, inkongole Bambi bakwata to those who’ve been funding their failed campaigns & elections are waiting for them to win and pay them back, just like what is happening now. Mark words life will remain the same my brothers & sisters.

    • You may be right it may be show off, but this has nothing to do with the suffering of Zambian he is just a spokesman he only says what he has been told to say that's all

    Matebeto can be either way……the man’s family thanking the wife for having looked after her husband well or the wife’s family thanking the man for having looked after his wife well…..it’s the families to be in the fore front….not the man or woman herself …pa Zed ifintu nafilubana….fyonse ni show off….they think by having a husband in the limelight or one who “flashes”cash or one who frequently flies out means balebasunga bwino, kaili evidence is there for everyone to see… kanshi mukati ni vingu… I hope muletasha pafyo bamisungile ilyo balifye ba journalist ngawo ngawo…..

    There is nothing wrong to do so,because his wife is very comfortable with Chanda’s behaviour in their marriage.no politics no ma insults let us learn to behave well with our wives then God will come and bless our families, not ma Kofi navibaka everyday,dont allow devil to control your couple. Thanks Mrs chanda.

    @farmer just hang yourself if you’re fed up of life!

  59. martin chiyesu

    This is private life & not politics,Amos congrats for showing us youths the way in marriages.

  60. anto mwe

    Congrats to you Amos for being honoured by your wife as a testimony that he has taken good care of you and your family and the thank you is expressed in this manner. My observation is that Amos holds a very sensitive position here in Zambia and his house can not be exposed since a lot of pipo from all walks of life attend such a ceremony. If he had done so he was going to expose himself and his entire family. Brothers or bloggers let us learn to look after our own wives well and respect the sacrament of matrimony as it is sacred and after many years of living in harmony your spouse will do such a thing to you to show gratitude.

  61. anto mwe

    Comment even mumakomboni , you can organise amatebeto by simply organising 4chickens na chi nsima chikulu kwasila mwaitanako ba neighbor ba wili and a few relatives around and vima packets vya shakeshake or munkoyo na chibwantu kwasila pipo can eat that and enjoy.

    THE MARGE WAS JUST OKEY BUT I DONT KNOW WAY FOWAD THE INSULTS AMOS USED TO CK.

  66. Chanda

    If you are not a bemba shut up matebeto doesn’t concern you. Matebeto is only given to hard working and responsible husbands after many years of marriage without separations or divorce not 2 years ati matebeto ninshi what are you thanking him for. That’s culture and nothing to do with Zambian politics or money

  67. Sakala

    This media is not for Bembas or matebeto why you have brought on media,iwe ka chanda matuvi kumatako uziachosa ukasiliza junta.

  68. Man muzo

    For how long have they been in marriage? But why amatebeto this time when ba Amos balipamulu? Anyway I hope it was done with good intentions

  69. Man muzo

    Iwe naiwe sakala mind your language

  70. Leah Namwinga

    Bana Amos Chanda, well done mama. Amos is your husband and its only you who knows him better. People will always talk, just mind your business and continue respecting your husband. I totally support you. God bless you more.
