Let’s just cancel the elections, says Kambwili

NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili suggests cancelling presidential and parliamentary elections due to Covid.

What this would mean is the that President Edgar Lungu will continue as president until Covid ends maybe in 2030.

What is motivating Kambwili to suggest this ? Is he speaking for himself or PF? When did ZNBC start giving Kambwili such coverage?

Unfortunately for Kambwili, cancelling elections requires changing the constitution first. You don’t just come together and agree to cancel elections.

We have not heard of any country so far that has cancelled elections due to Covid.

Even the USA, the most Covid hit country in the world, just came out of an election.

Is this why the PF is busy exaggerating Covid figures ?

    Kambwili keep your mouth shut for a change. Elections are not gatherings, they are queues and can be done observing social distancing. Stakeholders are the whole nation and its citizens not you and other politicians. You don’t just wake up and blow out your personal thoughts without evaluating what the national statute the constitution states on holding elections. Postponing any election means putting either the chief justice to run the country since the speaker’s tenure ends with dissolution of parliament. Neither the president nor his deputy can continue after the expiration of their term of office. So kambwili take stock of such salient issues, leave that arena out of your hallucinations.

    Kambwili is a PF plant in the opposition. He lamented the failure of Bill 10 and now he is pushing this nonsense! UPND should take note. It is better to stand alone than with PFoools.

    It seems there is no way you can be a successful businessman in Zambia and maintain your integrity and esteem if you join politics especially in the opposition camp! Ones investment is at risk despite contributing to job creation its the political camp that one belongs to that determines the healthy nature and continued existence of the business. In this vein investors aware of the instability of assured success would rather not invest on Zambian soil denying the country revenue and employment opportunities! Examples in GBM and now CK among many others justifies the reasoning of Zambian bred investors who would rather keep their major investments off Zambian soil.

    Sure,Kambwili to be covered by ZNBC, no even a small baby with diapers can say that CK has received a brown envelope. GBM, said one day CK will be with us. Elections can not be cancelled by mouth, you need to change the constitution, more over, USA bad on covid-19 were elections, so what are you talking about you PF cadre CK.

    Being sovereign means being able to to decide what is best for your country on your own. The constitution of Zambia as far as I know is silent on when scheduled elections can be postponed. How will this decision be made? Who will remain in power to run the country in an interim capacity? Certainly not Edgar Lungu. If no elections are held by August 12 this year, he will hv no mandate. Maybe the Speaker as a short-term measure.

      Max man whats the use the speaker has already been bought by lungu so what ever lungu tells him to do he will do it so making the speaker to rule the country is as the same as giving it back to lungu to rule the country again

        Sandy, I’m only saying it as a worst case scenario. Experts fear that Covid-19 infections tend to peak in winter and our cold season is roughly mid-May to mid-August. In a worst case scenario, it’s possible that too many of us Zambians including election officials, candidates for election to office and voters themselves may be sick or dead. What is the most rational thing to do in such a scenario? I’m not saying it will definitely happen but it’s probable and it scares me.

    Its unfortunate that such statement is being attributed to Imbwili. Postponing elections due to covid-19 is like an insult to those who love democracy. If Imbwili has hit the concrete wall, let him humbly step aside or simply go back to PF. Of late a lot of negative statements have been coming from Imbwili, like being quiet because of high legal fees charged by lawyers due to on going court cases. Imbwili has run out of steam and just waiting for right time to cross back to PF. His friend Mwenya Musenge has eaten already a humble so what makes Imbwili not follow suit. From the look of things most of the guys who defected for simple reasons and thought they would survive without govt contracts have been squeezed out by Lungu and his GRZ. They have found themselves reduced to paupers hence their going back down on their broken kneels. I hope these guys who like crossing from one field to another in search of greener pasture should learn from those who insulted ECL from hill tops but now are back. If things have gotten tough there is nothing wrong one can do by returning to old fold. This is the time men and women of substance will be seen withstanding all sorts temptations. For those that are not principled its a matter of survival than going hungry for an extra day or two.

    THE FORMER SECRETARY GENERAL OF NDC MWENYA WENT TO PF OPENLY, TODAY MR KAMBWILI HAS STARTED BEING GIVE COVERAGE BY ZNBC, WHEN A ZAMBIA IS GIVEN COVERAGE BY ZNBC WE KNOW THE CONNECTION BECAUSE ZNBC IS A PF MOUTH PIECE, I HOPE I AM NOT HALLUCINATING BUT THEIR IS NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE, AND IF AT ALL THERE IS A FIRE THEN KAMBWILI HAS A CIVIC DUTY TO QUENCH THIS FIRE SO THAT WE STOP SPECULATING, MY DIRECT QUESTION TO KAMBWILI IS HOW DID ZNBC MANAGE TO COVER YOU OVER AN ISSUE SUGGESTING CANCELLATION OF ELECTIONS IN ORDER TO GIVE LUNGU A LONGER TIME IN STATE HOUSE?

    I am s follower of Ck but not a blind one, we have been hearing about rumors of Kambwili being courted by PF so that he could hit a 360 degrees turn and go back to that vomit, honestly I have had doubts that those rumors can never be true because i believe Kambwili is a principled man. NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE KAMBWILI BECAME OPPOSITION, I SAW HIM BEING COVERED BY ZNBC WHEN HE WAS SUGGESTING CANCELLATION OF ELECTIONS DUE TO COVID, SINCE WHEN DID BEGIN TO COVER OPPOSITION LEADERS, ZNBC ONLY COVERS OPPOSITION LEADERS IF PF HAS PALLED SOMETHING. SO WOULD I BE WRONG TO SUGGEST THAT PF ARE BECOMING SOFT ON KAMBWILI FOR A REASON? I KNOW HOW TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES BUT THESE LINES ARE HAZZY

        I said it before that Kambwili was against the opposition because they stopped him for stealing, he is a greedy pig. They guy is broke as he needs govt contract, he stole in the mines, stripping all the scrap metals in the mines. What a fat fool with no next, i pray Lusambo to beat his ass again
