MONGU residents on Tuesday mobbed Wynter Kabimba when he arrived in the area to meet PF officials.

And President Michael Sata phoned Kabimba, who was addressing party officials at Country Lodge, to find out how he had been received.

Kabimba, who is justice minister and PF secretary general, brought Mongu to a standstill after his entourage took over the two lanes of the Mongu-Lusaka road upon his arrival.

Taxis and private vehicles voluntarily joined the convoy honking as nearby residents shouted ‘mwa mukolo! mwa mukolo mwa mukolu’ (in the boat, in the boat).

Kabimba, who arrived around 17:45 hours, apologised for the delay and was met by party officials and ordinary citizens that sang praises in honour of President Sata and the PF.

Police had a tough time securing way for Kabimba who was mobbed by people for about 20 minutes before Western Province minister Obvious Mwaliteta pleaded with them to allow him to walk.

“Please people we know you have been waiting for a long time but allow the secretary general to walk with you. He has come here for you and he will address you at the lodge,” said Mwaliteta while removing his jacket before joining the walk.

Kabimba, who disembarked from his ministerial vehicle, walked for about six kilometers before addressing the slogan-chanting supporters who kept cutting his speech with ululations.

“They are saying Mongu is not PF, who are you? Are you not our members? Don’t be cheated, there is nothing like neglecting you. The PF government has put Western Province at its core of development. I am here because I am one of you and together we should develop Zambia, you’re Zambians so we should work together,” Kabimba said when he addressed scores of supporters that blocked Independence Avenue.

He said he would tell President Sata that the party had welcomed him and that people were waiting to see him.

And Kabimba responded: “Your Excellency, I have been warmly received. It was a warm and thunderous welcome. People were happy to see us. All is well, so I am just with the provincial chairman and the MCC. All is well, sir.”
