Munkombwe celebrates appointment, booed

munkoThe main streets of Livingstone were Friday afternoon temporarily blocked when  newly appointed Southern Province Deputy Minister Daniel Munkombwe celebrated his appointment to serve in the PF Government.

Munkombwe, leading a convoy of over 50 vehicles among them GRZ vehicles toured the tourist capital with heavy state police who ensured that the old man was given way to disturb the  traffic.

Munkombwe who was spotted lifting the PF symbol and denouncing the MMD by loudly stating that he had to leave the party due to its extinction was however shamed by the onlookers who denounced the old man  and told him off for his selfish interests.

Some people were seen lifting their middle fingers to show disgust at Munkombwe and his band of celebrants and for disturbing their traffic.

Munkombwe is on camera after announcing that he has joined the PF for purposes of his belly.

    No matter what happens, no matter how angry you all are, just remember one thing, do not lose respect of your parents. Let us help our parent to know that the words he used when given that opportunity to serve in this Government were very wrong or not just well thought out. I do not know what he intended to get by talking like that. What he did was to put the appointing power in ridicule from the Zambian public. Forgive him if you can.

    The president should surely reverse this appointment,this man has publicly shown his love for his belly and not to serve you and me out there!

  5. Ngilingindo   April 8, 2013 at 08:04

    middle finger for him..with two hands..atase..useless..

  6. IG of police   April 7, 2013 at 12:51

    The old man is useless and he has no program for the people of Southern province.

    • John Cena   April 7, 2013 at 17:41

      You are right. I am raising the middle finger against him

  7. Chitaku   April 7, 2013 at 09:53

    I like Mr. Munkombwe for his honesty that he is only after his bread as there are no leaders anymore that are in it for the country. Who else can be this truthful? Guy Scot pocked money for pigs, imported rotten maize and was eventually fired by Kafupi. Nchito has unpaid money from DBZ and a case in court while prosecuting others for graft!

    In 65 years of India’s independence, they have developed a sillicon valley of sorts and now manufacture motor vehicles while one Munkombwe believes the stomach is the most important part of his body and NOT HIS BRAIN! NO WONDER WE ARE WHERE WE ARE IN TERMS OF DEVELOPMENT after 50 years of independence he claims to have contributed to bring about. We his so called efforts merely to feel his belly rather than to help propel this country to higher heights. Sometimes it pays for him to remember that ultimately the only assets he shall lay laim to is only a 1 metre x 2 metre x 2metre plot called a grave and the rest is called manure or humus. Be advised because you will have to answer for some of your actions and decisions.

  12. Black Mist   April 6, 2013 at 21:11

    if we seek the so called goveernment positions to eat, can the man with one leg in the grave tell us what the rest of the Zambians who have no chance in hell of being appointed into government jobs eat. Munkobombwemust be made to undersstand that his one litre stomach is nothing compared to the stomachs of the rest of the all Zambians who are not connected to him in terms of picking crumbs from his filthy table i.e if has one at all. the essence of government is to ensure to the largest degree possible the welfare and security of citizen and not the welfare ofhis old stomach. Old Munkombwe, how much more do you want to eat seeing that you are over 80 and there are under five chlidren dying all over this country while resources continue to be expended to support a blotted government. Every time you bite and swallow a chunk of steak please remember that child who is starving and dying or will remain remain forever ignorant because you draw a salary and benefits YOU DONT DESERVE? what is it that a much much younger cant do that you claim to offer to Musanza? Shame on you old man. This country and Southern Province can move on with or without you. YOU OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF YOU.

      Well said Black Mist. (And also well written)

  13. Chiyobeka   April 6, 2013 at 21:04

    Yaah, Munkombwe is old eeh? How about Chikwanda, Scott $ all the old sorts who look like they have been exhumed from the old pipos home. Sata himself is such a one, he has made Zambia look like a country from the primeval ages. Going backwards, wont be surprised if he calls Grey Zulu next.

    remind munkombwe abt mahere takawira,mmd chairman in mazabuka who openly tod the old about his style of politicts.i think banda is shocked about wat munkombwe is doing.i dont blame him but those who think hes useful because of a ragged livingstone election and if munkombwe will still be alive during upnd’s reign of government,he will join coz hes not ashamed but the upnd will not accept him coz he will dealing with fellow tongas.chibbwalo

    Looks like the old rug will also be searching for a job even in his grave.shameless idiot

    • Witness   April 6, 2013 at 19:55

      Is there anything new about the ‘old rug’ … Nay it is just a stepping stone! HEMCS is playing his cards well. Soon the purge will start, some people will have nowhere to go but the Mulongoti way….one man party!

  17. Nalumino   April 6, 2013 at 19:18

    These idiot who dnt think politics of the belly indeed.

  18. imbwa   April 6, 2013 at 16:51

    Munkobwe’s appointment is a shame to this great nation of zambia.the man is suppose to be taken to a home for the aged.he is been on the podium for so long,what can he contribute at that age.the appointin authority are they scared of munkobwes witchcraft for them to appoint him.

  21. Terminator   April 6, 2013 at 15:22

    He is a tortoise of the jungle, infact a turtle. I think his name is self descriptive, because turtles are well known for their eatifullness or greed. No wonder he exposed his motive to his counterpart fred paper that he just joined them to be looked after and not to serve. That is the aim of pf, to look after the old madala politicians and not the whole nation at large. Sad for pathetic fools as they keep on doubling their folly or stupidity with thoughts that they are on a developmental course.

  22. Steve   April 6, 2013 at 14:59

    Munkombwe is not a problem but the appointing authority…. Tha appointment shows the calibre of leadership we have.

  23. Joe Johnson   April 6, 2013 at 14:50

    Shameless Munkombwe,this country would have been far in terms of Development if Munkombwe and his fellow idiots were geting into Gvrt to serve NOT to eat. From 1964 to date the same people are still eating. Wake up Zambians-HH is only person who will clean up this mess NOT these who just change political parties but the character is the same.

  32. Chipo   April 6, 2013 at 12:14

    Leave Munkombwe alone.He has what it takes to lead and indeed he will succeed in Southern Province.We are no longer interested in voting for opposition.We want to give PF a chance.

    • justine   April 6, 2013 at 12:37

      Chipo looks like DM is your grand papa what development can an old broom bring facts are facts.81 years old. They are merely looking after him. He got a job have winning by election you can’t fool us.when are the youth get jobs when Munkombwe retires again be serious people supporting don’t know what they are doing on this earth. So think before you comment I know know its your personnel option so we can’t stop you but wonder with shamed.

  34. CHOOMA   April 6, 2013 at 11:40

    Leave Munkombwe alone! It’s his life and his choices. Who stops you from making and changing choices anyway! The cruel reality in life is that you cannot survive in whatever you do if you remain static in the face of the ever changing environment. This applies to plants, animals or indeed humans!!

    • Kizto   April 6, 2013 at 12:18

      What’s your point?

      • Simangulungwa   April 6, 2013 at 16:19

        His point is that each one of us has to feed himslef and his family if you have family – Munkombwe has found a way to – alas from our taxes.

    • CAS   April 6, 2013 at 12:47

      You are a fool. How can we leave him alone, when he is in a public office. You have no point unfortunately u just showed you stupidity and lack of education to analyse issues.

  35. BOOT CAMP   April 6, 2013 at 11:33

    The man has served under the Federal, UNIP, MMD,FP behind Welensky,Kaunda,Chiluba, Banda and Sata respectively. The only other person who served in all these administrations is Sata himself. Munkombwe isn’t ashamed to celebrate among his grand and great grand children like Haapunda and Lawrence who should have qualified in order to make the PF ‘entrance’ in SP meaningful. If Sata thinks Munkombwe is popular in SP, the Head of State is as badly mistaken as Banda was on Major Chizyuka. Livingstone was rigged and PF only won on “popular rigging” than on popular vote.

    • Sandala   April 6, 2013 at 13:00

      He has also served under Mwanawasa. And he can serve under any other leader such as HH, Miyanda, Chipimo etc. He lacks an ideology and principles. Sata resigned from MMD simply because he did not want anymore to be led by someone. Sata said he was too experienced to be led but it seems Munkombwe does not feel so. Shame on him!

  36. selako   April 6, 2013 at 11:32

    reckless and foolish appointment indeed!

    • CHOOMA   April 6, 2013 at 11:44

      why say that without giving any good reason and who are you anyway to judge an experienced politician like him?

      • BOOT CAMP   April 6, 2013 at 12:02

        What experience? And you think Abdulai Wadey of Senegal, Mandela of RSA, George W Bush of US,Mwinyi of Tanzania and Joachim Chisano of Mozambique are not experienced? They knew when it was their time and gave way to young “inexperienced” politicians to gain experience. Can u Chooma run a 400metre lap race four times without passing on the baton to a fresh runner? Munkombwe is a shame and a fraud and he himself has confessed that one goes into Government to “eat” and not for public service. Now isn’t that fraudulent and shameful? That’s far from what the people he purpotes to represent (the Southerners) are generally known for. The old man’s mouth naturally salivates when he speaks about “eating” from Government. Shame!

      • Mpombo George   April 6, 2013 at 20:29

        The very day I heard that old Munkombawe was appointed Southern Province Minister by Man of INACTION HEMCS i surrendered to myself and felt more disgusted about PF governance system than before. Anyway God knows and wish PF government good luck.
