Kambwili Is Suffering Because Of His Loud Mouth, Says Lungu

President Edgar Lungu has said National Democratic Congress (NDC) leader Chishimba Kambwili is suffering because of his ‘loud mouth’.

The Head of State said this after ZNBC reporter Mark Zilingone asked him on his ‘reconciliation’ with the former information minister during an interaction with journalists on Friday.

In response, President Lungu said he had no issues with Mr Kambwili, except that his words had affected him and his family.

He said Mr Kambwili had called him a drug dealer, thief and a corrupt person, when he had no evidence tip substantiate the allegations.

President Lungu and the former PF Roan Constituency member of parliament met at the 5th memorial service for president Michael Sata where they were told to reconcile.

Fr Charles Chilinda of St Ignatius Catholic Parish later held a closed door meeting with them.

“What happened is that I went to Church to remember my late president [Michael Sata]. I didn’t know that Mr Chishimba Kambwili was in the crowd and the priest called me and we shook hands. I was lamenting at that point, I was saying, what have I done to be called for reconciliation? Because I have never differed with this gentleman. In short, I have no issues with Chishimba Kambwili, save that he has offended some people, including members of my family, by calling me a thief, a corrupt person and a drug dealer,” President Lungu said.

“To cut the long short, after the meeting the priest saw it fit to call us in his office and there I told him (Kambwili) what I have said. I said ‘you can’t reconcile with me, even if the Church wants that to be the case or the nation wants that to be the case, because I have no issues with you and it’s you who has issues with me’.”

The President further disclosed that during the closed door meeting, Kambwili complained bitterly that his businesses had been squeezed by government.

He said told the NDC leader that he was suffering because of his loud mouth.

President Lungu advised Kambwili to humble himself and publicly apologise like GBM and Lusaka mayor Miles Sampa.

“I explained further by saying that ‘your mouth is so negative that people who want to work with you fear that they will be perceived to be supporting your cause and so, some of them have been withdrawing business association and interest from you.’ It’s not to do with me because I know what it means to suffer blackout or sanctions in that manner. So, I don’t know whether you can say that was reconciliation or not. I have spoken the way things happened! After that, we left. So, whether there’s reconciliation or not, I don’t have to reconcile with everybody. But you make peace with yourself, first; find out whether what you are saying is truthful or not. If not, retract,” said President Lungu.

    Please learn to forgive each other.If you leaders are failing to forgive and forget about the past what about us children how are we going to be.That day when you and Chishiba Kabwili when you were reconciled every one were happy that you have forgiven each other.The father of catholic talked about forgiveness and even the song which was singing was to forgive.The bible says that if you can’t forgive your friend even God can’t forgive you.So learn to forgive.

I swear if you don’t do or listen to what people say all you businesses will collapse . we know for sure if you were in pf after ecl term of office you are next President but kambwilis un hambleness ,bitterness and foolishness will cost him mis the presidency position. True kambilis mouth is widely opened. It doesn’t select words to speak.

      Is that right in a country that claims to be democratic and a Christian nation? Take a close look at what we have as leaders today…the scum of the earth. In as much as I have nothing against people who come from poor backgrounds since we do not choose the families, we are born into. However, I take issue with poor MINDS. Lungu has made a conscious decision to surround himself with useless idiots who have nothing to offer. Takers. All he needed to do is rise above petty party politics and appoint able-bodied people regardless of party affiliation. Zambia this must be a lesson. You cannot expect a Fox to guard the henhouse.

    I can’t see anything on what Mr kambwili said to you, you are not only a drug dealer but also a drunkard, so just reconcile with him.

      He is also a free marthone,ever since his term in office.his behaviour has been so strange.the Man is now a illuminadist,consider the holidays within October,their magine is 6.many will argue but follow this,we have 12,18 & 24.ever since,no president of Zambia visited Vatican but lungu did, making his government under pagan law (paganism) it’s not a surprise lungu has become big headed & rich over night.he is clever enough to give us a shadow of 18 as a day of prayers, when in fact not but a recruitment of a goddesy called pop.

    So according to him kambwili is ready to reconcile and maybe even go back to the PF if his businesses are boosted. So if we hear Kambwili going back we shall know the reason now.

    I find it ironic but sadly not surprising that the President prefers to be around yes men. No wonder the country is in a mess. The idiot can not stand the truth.

    CK is just a mouthful tribalist and has no leadership qualities. He went round the country to apologise for his tribal remarks, and such are the leaders Zambians want to hang on to.
    Move on, you have made wrong choices for too long.

    THE TALE ABOUT EVIL.
    Long-time ago in the Animal Kingdom, a sheep was passing and saw a lion crying inside a cage trapped and the lion begged the sheep to save him with a promise not to kill and eat it but the sheep refused. After much persuasion and for the sheep’s gullibility it opened the cage for the lion.
    Now the lion was very hungry having stayed in the cage for days without food. It quickly grabbed the sheep to kill and eat but the sheep reminded him of his promise. They were still there arguing when other animals came passing and they sought to know what happened. Both the lion and the sheep narrated their own side of the story but because of fear and in trying to gain Favour in the sight of the lion, all the animals took side with the lion except the Tortoise who claim not to understand the whole scenario.
    Now the Tortoise asked the lion to show them where he was before the sheep rescued him, he pointed at the cage. He asked again, “were you inside or outside when the sheep arrived”? The lion said he was inside. The tortoise again said, “ok, enter let’s see how difficult it could be inside”. The lion entered and the tortoise locked him back inside.
    In amazement, the other animals asked tortoise “why” and he replied “if we allow him to eat the sheep today, he will still go hungry tomorrow and we don’t know the next amongst us to be eaten tomorrow.
