OPINION: Kambwili Thrives on Being a Loud Mouth

Former Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has dominated the headlines in the recent past.

When he is not throwing political tantrums in the press, Kambwili is making appearances at the courts of law that have become his political playground. In any case, Kambwili is not a quiet guy. He has always thrived on being a loud mouth. But his mouth is not his biggest enemy. Rather, what has become Kambwili’s Achilles heel is his political indecisiveness.

On one hand, he would be proud to stand tall insisting that he is a Patriotic Front member of parliament whilst also passionately proclaiming to be the leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on the other. It had to take parliamentary intervention to get him to straighten out his political status, albeit with resistance. The former Information Minister then proclaimed that he would not challenge the declaration of his seat vacant but was back in court a few days later challenging the Speaker’s decision. The drama was not to end with the Constitutional Court as halfway through the process, he abandoned the action only to resurrect it in the High Court. Such has been the indecisiveness of the motor-mouthed Kambwili.

Once the decision to have the by-election go on, even with his shenanigans, was set by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), Kambwili toyed with the idea of fielding his son in the by-election but abandoned it after the party settled for Engineer Joseph Chishala.

Even his new found political allies, among them now is the UPND with whom he so ethnically abused in their political stronghold that they could not even vote for Jesus Christ if pitted against their leader Hakainde Hichilema, today have become political bedfellows albeit only for convenience.

Kambwili may well have his right to political association but surely his followers have to be on alert as they may not just know when he turns a corner. They must eat with him with a long spoon!

    Such is the dilemma we will live with for a long time if PhD studies will be producing this kind of graduates.

    I have come to understand that the very big enemy to kambwili is Chris Phiri their is no way a reporter isn’t capable to decide what to write or the picture to use shame (this opinion is the worst type of reporting given by a wrong person)

    Kambwili Never Want To Let The Fire To Go Out, He Always Works On Kunka Mulilo Wishima, He Z The Only Only Politilian Who Now Being Discussed By Many So Many Places Because Of His Noise Making, He Is A Cadre Who Was Groomed By Mr Sata Thats Why He Is So Noisy. He Has Become A Song In Our Dwellings Because Of His Noise Making. Any Way He Is A Good Entertainer To Me.

    Trevor you are amazing iam still laughing even now for sure I don’t know what occurred to Zambians intermarriages can’t produce these minds unless God allows a marriage of the persons/people you dislike eg if you dislike the kaondes or lozi and we have intermarriages among those who hate them be careful due to what and where your faith is you will be granted because God gives what you desire (IN SHORT WASH YOUR HEARTS WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS WITH CONFIDENCE)

    The man doesn’t know what he wants. He’s confused just after his expulsion from gvt. But you reporters, choose wisely what pictures to show the world. I migine if kambwili was your father will post such an imbarassing picture?. You claim 2b Christian were love is the greatest law, Show some love by respect of elders . Zambia tulekwi NA technology without limits .remember we all one Zambia one nation.
