Kambwili Fired From NDC

Opposition National Democratic Congress has dismissed its consultant Chishimba Kambwili and told him to concentrate on his battles with the ruling Patriotic Front.

The NDC has made the decision following the former information minister’s racial remarks against an Indian working for a road construction firm, a scene that was recorded and circulated widely on social media.

Kambwili, the embattled Roan Member of Parliament, has been condemned for his remarks which the NDC, a party that identified him as its 2021 presidential candidate, has distanced itself from.

Speaking on a live programme on UNZA Radio this morning, NDC’s secretary general Mwenya Musenge said Kambwili’s conduct “is making the party look like a party of jokers, we are not racist, we are not xenophobic”.

He also said the party is surprised that Kambwili has not stepped down as Roan Member of Parliament even after being expelled from the PF, claiming this situation was affecting the NDC’s countrywide mobilization and recruitment of new members.

“I know he (Chishimba Kambwili) will go with a lot of followers but I don’t mind as long as the right thing is done. Even if it means Mwenya Musenge remaining with only the party certificate it is fine!” Musenge said.He said the NDC is bigger than any individual.

“We just feel that for the time being, let us run our own affairs as a party. He will be communicated to through a central committee meeting where we will be able to meet. And for those that feel ‘no but us, we want this to be this way, we want to work with Kambwili’, they are free to do that but not under the name of NDC. NDC has its own leadership and its own members. The NDC is bigger than individual, and we expect that all those who are members of the NDC will respect the decision that has been taken and of course, we shall see how we can go about it,” Musenge said.

“And I want to reemphasise that we do not hate our dear brother Kambwili but we feel we need to have a figurehead, we need to have a president whom we can call with confidence that this is our man. We don’t want a situation where today you are being told ‘no I am being courted by NDC but I have not made a decision whether to accept or not’. Not where I make a pronouncement that 2021, we are going to field Chishimba Kambwili as our presidential candidate and he is able to respond to say ‘ask Musenge, he is the one that has formed that party, I  don’t know about those things…’”

He further advised Kambwili to immediately stop issuing any statements on behalf of the NDC.

“So this decision has just been taken to try and see how we can rectify these things. Our relationship as brothers with Chishimba Kambwili still remains. We can share a light moment together…but as a party, as NDC, we have nothing and we will have…and we want to appeal to him also that he respects the decision of the party and that he cannot, from now onwards, issue statements on behalf of the NDC. That shall only be done by myself as secretary general of the party and the party spokesperson who is Mr [Misheck] Moyo and the vice-president…,” said Musenge.

    This might be the beginning of the end of Mbwili’s political career. Even UPND will not take in such a senseless chap. PF go ahead and chuck this man out of your party. Hope he will learn something from this action.

  11. nshilimubemba

    Kambwili is capable of forming his own party if he wants .
    What can Mwenya Musenge do better than Kambwili

      iwee what embarancement has he brought,this should be a waker call to the ruling government to put in place policies which fevers the zambians and not foreigners.Pipo if you have been out there in

      asian countries or other parts of the world you can not find a foreigners doing jobs which there nations can do no way,and labour commissioner is a dull

      Apologies for what the man just did a right thing and musenge is a looser who can even commend a hand full of suppoters ,nowounder he lost in chimwemwe constituence but CK won in ROAN and campaigned for ECL vigorously the entire zambia

    Is this man called mbwili a politician,comedian or a criminal?.When ever you re report in my court for identity coz we want peace in Zambia

    It’s not surprising that KASHIMBA CHIMBWILI has been shown the door for embarrassing both NDC and MOTHER ZAMBIA.The guy is so egocentric he fails to realize that the world is becoming a GLOBAL VILLAGE. Many ZAMBIANS have traveled far and wide , doing “DONKEY JOBS”. We can’t run away from the fact that people from other nations will come and do some “lower jobs” something which of course must be controlled by our Immigration Department without getting involved in personal confrontations in public.DIPLOMACY is the key word here. Seeking “Political Attention” does backfire at times.Sorry sir, this is the mess you have created for yourself.Clean it up.

  21. Drugsquard

    CK should just tone down and make amends with PF. No one can tolerate him even HH is very hesitant to accept CK into his tribal studded party.

    This is now the down fall of CK. He has taken the judiciary grounds as his operation field.

  22. Majo

    At times we will keep on blaming each other, but we are failing to empower one another, that’s why most of the time we keep on blaming the foreigners of taking our jobs. we have resources here and abundant land but we are thinking of is an office.

  23. Morris c Mulenga

    People of Zambia don’t be so fast of charging kambwilli ok try to find out fast then you check then make a conclusion.

  24. Monty

    No matter what you say ck is doing a good job
