Sata accused of running two cabinets

Some PF senior cabinet ministers have bitterly  complained of being undermined by the Winter Kabimba group sponsored by the Post newspaper.

Sources said the ministers feel president Michael Sata runs another  cabinet comprising the Post newspaper, the Nchito brothers, Ms. Silvia Masebo, and ‘heir’ to the throne Winter Kabimba.

They say there is a deliberate ploy to project Kabimba as a statesman hence assigning him in so many responsibilities to represent the president such as the forth-coming African Union summit which the president might not even attend.

Senior government leaders are wondering how Kabimba can represent the president at such high level Heads of States meeting when there is Guy Scott who is the republican vice-president and more suited to represent the president.

Sources said whenever this team meets the president, their decisions are so binding that other ministers are just used to rubber-stamps them, a situation that has seriously angered most of them.

Senior PF officials are also complaining about Ms. Masebo’s sudden powerful position in government and the PF party when she is just a new-comer who was insulting president Sata not long ago under the government of late president Levy Mwanawasa.

“There are decisions that we as ministers just read about them in the Post newspaper like any other citizens, when they are supposed to be decided by a full cabinet.

We want to know the role of Mr. Mmembe and the Nchito brothers in cabinet, since it is clear that most of the cabinet decisions are done between Mmembe, Kabimba, Masebo, Nchito brothers and president Sata” said the source.

The source said the nation must know that 70 percent of cabinet decisions in recent months have been made by a few cabinet out-siders and others are just made to rubber stamp.

Senior PF ministers said its is a pity that the opposition is not aware that they are dealing with a very weak and seriously divided cabinet and government.

To say the truth, the situation is not ideal and good for governance and smooth administration of the country.

The same cabinet is totally divided on the arbitrary arrest of opposition leaders using state police and cadres disguised as state police of which the entire cabinet is aware of.

The victimisation of Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda is also not supported by entire cabinet and PF leadership because it is also being used to instil fear in other leaders.

Now PF extends price controls to bread

    All Earthly Government operates on this Principle,firstly You need a good media to effectively communicate your agenda and secondly a good group of Blue eyed boys to get things done and thirdly you need to offer you boys a futuristic promise of a dazzling Carrot so that things are done according to your desires. Amen

    There is some sense in what these PF cabinet ministers are saying. Not all is well in Zambia under PF and Sata. Kindly give hints to the opposition and the Zambian watchdog, it will benefit the nation.

    this is typical of Ukwa and his chap.we knew the big bum gays are behind most decisions which are irrational..

    Its is disappointing to see the zat EFZ,& CCZ are not rusing important issues that PF has abrogated like the freedom of assembly,i was shocked to see pukuta mwanza siding with Sata on the need to come for work early those are not the issues they should be rising,let the church rise real issues of freedoms and democracy like winter resign because he is also an accused

    Besides running two Cabinets, a national one (drawn from Parliament)and a private one (composed of Mmembe, Kabimba, Masebo,Nchito, Mahtani etc), President Sata has two branches of Police. The Official Police is commanded from Police Headquarters whereas another branch which has been detailed to harass opposition politicians is commanded from State House.

    May be its a surprise ruling strategy………………..

  12. The Observer   January 22, 2013 at 04:21

    Mwine Mushi Michael Kalufyanya Sata and Winter Kabimba Kasaka of the Zambia Plot one Comedy Show have subjected us to a never-ending clowning shows. Unlike Mwine Mushi and Kasaka of the Muvi TV shows, Sata and Winter are holding real State power.
    Even those that were enjoying the entertainment have started to realize that the comedy shows have real effect on their lives. The reality is that we have a mad man presiding over our affairs.
    Talking about Winter Kasaka Kabimba or Kabamba or whatever he calls himself, the nitwit is simply in a state of dementia as a result of concoctions and medicines meant to keep him alive. If our psychiatrists were to tell us the truth, they would reveal that we were being ruled by maniacs. If our religious leaders were not compromised, they would have described Mwine Mushi Sata and Winter Kasaka as immoral men. They would have advised Sylvia to close her legs and repent; they would have asked homos like desperate Mmembe, cheating Nchito to seek deliverance. Yes, they would have asked the country to return to God! But, you know our church leaders as well as I do…their thinking is money-influenced. The entire leadership of the Catholic Church is a sham. If it were someone else in plot 1, they would have already written their so-called ‘pastoral letters’. Now, they do not know how to handle a ‘catholic in State House’ who they sent to legalize homosexuality! Look at how shameful Frank Bwalya is now behaving with ill-gotten tax-payers money!
    Never before have prayers for the country become such an emergency!!! Zambia needs God’s intervention NOW!!!

    Hope his excellence is listening to watchdog and also hope that watchdog is saying the truth…………

  14. Woman President   January 21, 2013 at 21:34

    Let us look to the future and send Sata and his team home in 2016. That’s the only solution.

      Be alert and have your sight return. If you have become blind buy sight glasses you will see a lot. Kabimba has said a lot and even gone to an extent of becoming pompous and boastful.

  21. Mubanga   January 21, 2013 at 18:41

    I am not surprised at all! We knew that this would be coming. We even expect more confusion is Mr Sata’s Cabinet. It is outsiders who are making decisions with a few PF ministers. Governance is not the same as telling lies!

  22. Lungu Eddie   January 21, 2013 at 18:35

    Mwine that’s the truth pf cabinet don’t worry both sata and kabimba will answer to God for the trouble and evil the ve brought to this land you can lie to man even to yourself when you choose too but you can’t lie to God may sata repent today of his sins because his sins and iniquity will haunt his off spring brothers and sisters God can not be mocked all that sata and June have done the ll pay back in full my advice shu shu that are reading this if there’s humanity left in you tell sata to repent soon people might not forgive him but God will and your action will show if you have repented help sata

    Scott and Chikwanda are equally tired and want out. Whatever goods the goons have on Lubinda, they have on everyone else. That is why Sata is hesitant to boot Lubinda out. Most of his top lieutenants don’t agree with the idea of sending him off.

    Sata cannot articulate a policy statement, cannot inspire the nation, and defintely cannot govern.

    The failure is too early.

    A low point for Zambia.

  24. Truth Seeker   January 21, 2013 at 18:32

    A tragic state of affairs

  25. Safelina   January 21, 2013 at 18:27

    I told you! Chikwanda and Scott are disappointed with the state of affairs. They are tired and don’t want to be associated with this insanity.

    That is why Sata is dragging his feet about sending him out. Whatever goods they have on Lubinda, they have on everyone else. Lubinda just happened to be impatient with the rot.

    Sata has failed to govern.

    It is that simple!

    This is a low point for Zambia.

    Zambians should stop complaining this is what they voted for.

    • Mubanga   January 21, 2013 at 18:42

      Not all of them!

      • biemba   January 24, 2013 at 12:00

        yeah but most of them

  27. Mwine Mushi   January 21, 2013 at 17:22

    Sata’s pre-election saying was “those whom the Gods want to destroy they first confuse them” and true to these sentiments no amount of blood transfusion at morning-side clinic in South Africa can save HIV confused Kabimba
