PF cadre Fr. Chibuye chases opposition delegates from Muchinga constitution convention

chibuyeFr. Patrick Chibuye, the PF cadre who is chairing the Muchinga province constitution convention has expelled two delegates associated with the opposition.

Fr. Chibuye, a well-known PF cadre who also serves also as Mpika Catholic diocese director of Caritas chased Harriet Siamutondo, a businesswoman and a member of the Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) and Ruth Mulenga from the Zambia Conservative Party (ZCP).

Chibuye (in the photo) said the two successfully masqueraded as delegates to the ongoing  Muchinga province constitution convention but were expelled for failing to meet minimum qualifications for admission to the forum.

He said the two also tried to influence the proceedings of the convention.

Fr. Chibuye claimed that the banning of the two delegates was not political but in line with guidelines from the technical committee drafting the Zambian constitution on admission to the convention.

Fr. Chibuye said the decision to expel the duo was arrived at after establishing that they came from Lusaka Province, contrary to guidelines that delegates to a particular provincial convention must come from within their province.

Fr. Chibuye said it was discovered that the two political parties which the duo purported to represent have no party structures in Muchinga province to warrant their admission to the convention.

He noted that despite the two presenting official invitation letters to attend the convention, they did not qualify to be delegates by virtue of coming from another province other than Muchinga.

Fr. Chibuye revealed that in consultation with the technical committee, a plan may be devised on how best to get back the money the two received as allowances and a possible prosecution for obtaining money on false pretences.

The Muchinga province constitution convention has since broken into mini committees to look at individual clauses of the draft constitution before reconvening tomorrow for submissions to the main plenary session.

    Roman catholic priests surprise me.They are too plitical and sinful.All they know is fucking and defiling children like what happened in poland in 2010.Devil found a hiding place in this church.It is good that the so called fathers and priests are dying from aids.people have seen untold suffering in the hands of catholics.

      you want this ka father to die boyi, you cant see he is already in the last days

  11. enlightened   January 17, 2013 at 10:53

    honestly speaking! whether this father is a PF sympathizer or not, he’s absolutely right! the guidelines were not formulated by him and he should not be castigated or insulted. The guidelines says so. i uphold him for being so professional. its unfortunate that reporters like the author of this article are bend on one side. he has not offered what we call balance reporting! did he consult the technical committee whether the clegy man was right?

  12. indigene   January 17, 2013 at 10:31

    The church must withdraw this father from this group. He is not a dignified representative of the church. The church is not seen in positive light as result.

      We treated him of gonorrhea. He experienced painful urination and heavy secretions. Obvious he is HIV+. A moving HI virus!

    Do not be personal, I think the two ladies are being opportunists and I dont think educated people here can support such.

  15. KING ATASe!   January 17, 2013 at 09:52

    These Bemba Catholic priests are such a disgrace. Total tribalists and total PF. First F(ucke)r Bwalya, now F(ucke)r Chibuye.

  16. lubi   January 17, 2013 at 09:35

    idiot pf cadre posing as a man of God,lions in the sheep’s skin.How did he even qualify to chair the convention.of course its on Party patronage,Fr chibuye is a PF cadre just like Fr Frank Bwalya,period.

    • Pomps   January 17, 2013 at 10:09

      Yes he is and he is from Muchinga province and the 2 ladies were not from Muchinga province

  17. Mwanarob   January 17, 2013 at 09:01

    The church must bring sanity into politics, but avoid any nitty gritties. This man or rather father, is very petty. He is even talking about the pieces of silver the two got!! I thought he would speak of finding out how genuine the invitations were first, and then leave the issue of persecuting to the right department of gov? Our clergy in Zambia has lost my respect – including Nevers Mumba. Please serve God. You seem to be osclilating between serving God and mamon.

  18. Mr Kiss   January 17, 2013 at 08:53

    Fr,how did those two ladies recieve the invitation letters to attend the convention in muchinga when they are based in lusaka?you recover the money from the person who handed the invitation letters to those 2 ladies coz its not there fault

  19. KBM   January 17, 2013 at 08:50

    Is this not Thomas Kwenaite (TK) or whatever the award winning journalist is called, from Support, not Mlambo the Tongaman?

    A cadre is a body of devoted party loyalists who spend the majority of their free time organizing their party toward a mass party mobilisation. It is a tightly knit group of zealots who are active in advancing the interests of a revolutionary party.
    The duties of cadres are to educate and lead party and non-party members of society and to ensure that party policies and directives are carried out faithfully.
    Father Chibuye on the other hand is Mpika Catholic diocese director of Caritas. If he is agreeable with the policies of a particular party as they affect his flock, he can not be described as a cadre but a patriot

  23. narep   January 17, 2013 at 07:41

    may be its a situation where they represent two provinces. we should check their way of doing things

  24. Seed Inspector   January 17, 2013 at 07:32

    If what the father is saying true, then the two are off types and needed to be rogued out. But if its the other way round, then its very unfortunate. We are told the two are business women but from which district/ province.

  25. ine wine   January 17, 2013 at 07:28

    the guidelines are there please. this is not an issue. next please.

  26. mwine mushi   January 17, 2013 at 07:23

    Yes! If the guidelines stipulate that members should come from the province, and these two came from Lusaka, then the Father is right. Why can’t these ladies sit in Lusaka. Get the money back! And please, proper chizungu whenever you post an article:”who also serves also as…” SIC!

    • JINX-CHINA   January 17, 2013 at 07:45

      I support the Father for the bold decision.

  27. Adapt or Die!!!   January 17, 2013 at 07:16

    Can someone out there give us the guidelines being referred to here by the Chairman. Only then can we know who is at fault between the Chairman and the 2 ladies. It would be subjective to base our views on the story Headline.

  28. GMT   January 17, 2013 at 07:15

    I don’t see anything wrong here. The ‘father’ was acting within his rights and due responsibilities as any in his capacity should have done!

  29. Nyamwezi   January 17, 2013 at 07:14

    This Fr. Patrick Chibuye looks very sick limbi ni HIV/AIDS akwete. How can a healthy person look like a corpse, icitumbi! Ukutombesha bashimapepo!
