PF Roan MP and former Information minister Chishimba Kambwili’s problems in the PF are getting a new twist as there is now another plan of hounding him out and probably cite him for an offence of breaching oath of secrecy.
After realising that the silly charge of him allegedly calling his fellow PF member a wizard would not hold waters on which to pin him down and possibly disqualify him from holding any political office, he is now being accused of being the one leaking information to United Progressive Party president Saviour Chishimba. Dr. Chishimba has been on President Edgar Lungu’s neck exposing rampant corruption under his administration.
A senior Central committee member of the PF has disclosed that Lungu has expressed worry as to how Dr. Chishimba who recently survived an assassination attempt by state agents has clue to the things that were discussed in cabinet meetings when Kambwili was still serving.
Dr. Chishimba has reported Steven Kampyongo and Moses Mawere, the ministers for home affairs and sports respectively to the Anti Corruption Commission for corrupt activities in the bus allocations under the Private and Public Bus Drivers association of Zambia – PPDAZ where PF cadres were given buses on loans contracted by government as rewards for carrying out Lungu’s evil electoral activities. He has also called for a five year audit of the road development Agency – RDA projects and the companies who have been awarded the contracts.
With this allegation, Lungu hopes Kambwili will be convicted for breach of oath of office and possibly bar him from participating in any political activities as the offence is criminal and punishable by jail sentence under the Zambian laws.
Soon some one will complain and ask for Kambwili to be investigated on the allegations of leaking sensitive information. Kambwili and Chishimba are both founder members of the PF and some of the first crop of MPS when the party was still in opposition. Dr. Chishimba later resigned to form his political party UPP.
