Lubinda chased from Cabinet meeting

President Michael Sata yesterday allegedly chased away Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda from the cabinet meeting.

Sources from State Hous have told the Watchdog that when the Mr. Sata entered the Cabinet meeting room, he found Mr. Lubinda seated with other ministers.

Then Mr. Sata started shouting at Mr. Lubinda that he could not allow him in the cabinet meeting because he had been informed by PF Secretary General, Winter Kabimba, that he (Lubinda) was treacherous.

Mr. Lubinda tried to explain to Mr. Sata that the accusations were not true, but typical of President Sata, he could not give him a hearing and ordered that he leaves the cabinet room.

At that stage, there was a mini quarell between Mr. Lubinda and Kabimba before the former finally left.

Mr. Lubinda has been accused of treacherous behaviour by the Kabimba camp that want him hounded out of the party as he is seen as a threat to Kabimba’s presidential ambitions.

    This is really a comedy, Sata are you running a country or a bar where you can just chase away a drunk patron like a door bouncer? Is this really happening in a cabinet meeting? Ba Sata are you a dictator? The day PF will be out of power pipo will put a stick in your ass and a megaphone next to your mouth and hear you cry. Really Sata you cheated to the nation that you will be a better and normal president. Why are you fighting against each other? Today its GBM tomorow its another member. Pliz behave like grown ups and start developing the country. Sata, if you see potential your succesors let pipo vote for them during elections . If winter thinks he will be the next president so what? Why are u fighting? This is an indication that you want to RIG all the coming elections ciz u feel that you will be in power forever. We are wacthing u

    when mr.Sata used to be very critical of RB as president that RB was wasteful because of “over traveling” out of the country, i thought to myself, that was not enough reason to change leadership. I once asked my Zambian friend who was was a PF cadre and now DC the following question:
    what alternative policy solutions does PF have to bring change for an ordinary Zambian? He basically had no proper answer. Like many others, the best answer then was that Zambia needs someone like Sata. So, ladies and gentlemen, next elections, vote for people to make changes like expensive education, roads connectivity to the rural area. Right now, i think neither RB nor Sata deserves that office as they could reduce their accusations those days to “who could scare more children [ugly]

    Of all fairness I would have wished to know the “the pipo who were in the tribunal” to tackle Lubinda’s treacherous case if Winter was there then it was not a fair and just trial for obvious reason Winter is an interested party. I voted for PF because of the credibility which Lubinda brought to this party, Lubinda was what I would term PF new man like what happened when UNIP was deemed a terrorist party by the colonialist until Kaunda wooed the educated Africans like Elija Mudenda, John Mwanakatwe, Mainza Chona and other notables. My heart is bleeding because of these happening – Lubinda is more of an asset to PF please your Excellency use your talent to decipher who is telling the truth. I am disoriented if you chase this guy you make so many pipo lose interest in our party including this author.

    Let the President analyze issues critically than just listening to the one party(Kambimba’S fundings)othwise Given Lubinda is a great person b4 the pipo of Kabwata and Zambia as a Nation.

    Am 100% disappointed with sata. I personally voted for pf because of Lubinda. Bo Lubind what goes up always come down, kindly go back to UPND and stand for kabwata seat. You will automatically win. SATA knows that his time is over so he is a don’t care type for now. PF efyo baile.

    it was the last stroll! Hwas being sidelined ever since the P.fost reported long B4 came into power as to whether he had ambitions of becoming PF Presido at some time after Sa.tan. He replied in affirmation. this annoyed cyle mata.

    Ever since that time, he has been sidelined, almost wasnt given a ministerial job, it took a lot of convincing by pipo to HEMCS then gave him at “tourist attraction” it was just a matter of time…
    he had it coming one way or the other!!!

  14. Neville   January 16, 2013 at 21:53

    Its sad to see many chiefs at havest time when we dibeted insulted kabimba was nowhere
    Why now. Pf is big GBM,lubinda, sata,g.scort etc.
    This is exactly how mejar joined mmd and look how fast its dying. Leave the faunders with
    The party vission to continue.
    Weather friends like u sir have no vission. Do u remember the last party interview on movi

  15. Mr. Teacher   January 16, 2013 at 20:56

    Just resign Given and we shall vote for you as an independent. This will mark the beginning of the end for Power Failure (Pf).

  16. Kaix   January 16, 2013 at 20:51

    Lubinda stand or form a political party il vote 4 u.

    Its painful to see given Lubinda in such a situation.I wonder what unforgivable sin he has committed??TIME WILL TELL! for sure!!

  19. charles banda   January 16, 2013 at 18:18

    live SATA alone and let LUBINDA prove his innoncese

    • Mr. Teacher   January 16, 2013 at 20:51

      Iwe ka banda, why can’t Kabimba expel the man up to now if there was evidence?

  20. Chikomera Galu   January 16, 2013 at 18:14

    I am waiting on how this Lubinda/Kabimba/MMembe/Sata will play out. I have a feeling we are in for entertainment of the highest order. Remember the Kapwepwe/Kaunda fiasco in the 70’s? I believe this will be bigger. Zambia needs this at this stage in its politics. Nawakwi and Chipimo grab your seats early to watch. This requires ringside seats. How I miss RB!

    If this can happen to Lubinda, wach mo iwe na ine? Kabimba jus gon tell The President that we are liking national secrets to Congo DR then we will be chased from public rallies.

  23. Mukupu   January 16, 2013 at 16:56

    Is it automatic that since U.N.I.P & M.M.D stayed long in Power so shall P.F?
    You dont fight for the future but it comes, accommodates and eliminates some.
    Sometimes you might be forced to move out, coz the comming end is terrible!
    Hon Given Lubinda to Every End there is a New Beginning!
    Some of Us who believe in GOD, dont rush for what man can give me, BUT Wait for what GOD has for Me!

    • Kabwata   January 16, 2013 at 17:06

      I agree with you.This is a fact.

  24. Tulen   January 16, 2013 at 16:30

    Sad for Given, I will even register so that I can vote for him. This is the next president for Zambia Under PF and Winter trebles when he sees that.
    Shame on PF. I used to like you coz of Given.

      To have that ‘passion for Pf’ was foolish of him. Let people learn from him.

  26. sylvia   January 16, 2013 at 15:42

    Am disappointed in the manner things have turned and the way things are being handled.
    have followed Lubinda’s politics and for many will agree with me, Given is a man of principles and i don’t think he could do such a stupid thing.He is just a threat to Kabimba. Kabimba should know that he is not a presidential material with such a behaviour.

  27. mwape   January 16, 2013 at 15:36

    there is no intelligence in politics.all politicians behave the same and no one knows who is better than who. i wonder

  28. docus   January 16, 2013 at 15:01

    kabimba , masebo and sata they are ungratefully to given.

  29. Muchende usiya   January 16, 2013 at 14:33

    We are in for it.

  30. malema   January 16, 2013 at 13:56

  32. mwanji   January 16, 2013 at 13:32

    Am not sure i’ve ever seen this in Zambia’s political history. Someone fighting so hard for presidency within a year of a president being elected.

    Is there something that Kabimba knows that the nation needs to know? This is strange, however very good for Zambians to know the nature of leadership in power.

    • GEN K   January 16, 2013 at 15:08

      who can vote for Kabimba sure ,he is just wasting his time even if he is anointed it will not work .the chap is useless .let SATA wake up otherwise he is getting it wrong
