Kapijimpanga axed

Kapinjimpanga presenting her credentials to Presdient Kagame of Rwanda

President Michael Sata has fired his High Commissioner to Tanzania Judith Kapinjimpanga.

Kapinjimpangi has already returned to Lusaka and is languishing at her farm house in Ibex Hill, according to sources close to the family.

Kapinjimpanga replaced Mervis Muyunda as envoy to Tanzania just after the PF formed government.

As High Commissioner, to Tanzania, she represented Zambia to Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi, and Uganda with residence in Dar-es Salaam.

Kapinjimpanga is among the minister who betrayed former president Rupiah Banda to join the PF toward elections. Kapinjimpanga was particularly vocal in her support and even recruited her lover Lameck Mangani to the PF.

The last time Kapinjimpanga was seen carrying out duties at the High Commission was in December 2012 when she received the national soccer team.

Deputy High Commissioner to Tanzania, Elizabeth Phiri has been acting from the time Kapinjimpanga was fired.

When vice-president Guy Scott and president Sata’s wife Christine Kaseba went to Tanzani in late December, they were met by the deputy High Commissioner Elizabeth Phiri.

In mid February 2013, information deputy minister Mwansa Kapeya led a group of officials to Tanzania on the digital migration project. They were met by the deputy High Commissioner Elizabeth Phiri.

Lameck Mangani, former home affairs minister and MP for Chipata central has already been disowned by the PF

On December 19, 2012, Patriotic Front Secretary General Wynter Kabimba said Mangani was not a member of the PF.

Speaking on ZNBC National Watch programme, Kabimba said Mangani’s relationship with the PF was merely a marriage of convenience. He said Mangani was in a similar situation as former MMD chairman for elections Mike Mulongoti who supported PF but were not members of the party. He said it was just a matter of ‘sangwapo’.

    Good for Judy, She betrayed her own friends thinking she will be on top of things forever. When you are up there, remember your friends from the compound, dont ignore them. God is not foolish. Let her come back…. And, yes it is true that she is married to a young man. She is 54 years old and her hubby is in his early fortys. Anyway age is just but a number!

    Whatever her weaknesses, ba Judy is a hardworking and good person. Not sure if this story of being fired is true for it has not been announced. And ba Watchdog are you sure your source saw her in Ibex?? If it turns out that the story is not true, the only way you will remain credible will be to render an apology to her. See the comments people are posting- some are character killing. ‘Watching you dogs’ to see your genuiness.

    • kandulo   April 1, 2013 at 20:38

      rb is the one who betrayed judith, out of the entire campaign team that was camped at chrismar hotel only judith was not appointed, what was ledt of her else to do, leave of course

      • mobutu seseseko   April 1, 2013 at 20:49

      Like someone else has pointed out, PF cannot fire a Bemba. She is either on leave or she is awaiting redeployment. Watch the space.

    She is judith kangombe from shiwangandu in chinsali dristrict and happily married to Davies Kapijimpanga, hence the name, mrs judith kapijimpanga. She’s not lameck mangani’s lover. Do not destroy her marriege.

  9. mosquito   April 1, 2013 at 17:08

    Being fired and being relieved of national duties are two different things, WD put your facts straight, was she found with the case to be fired?

    • bottom power   April 1, 2013 at 17:45
