Lubinda does not regret firing Masebo & Kabimba’s illegitimate son

Though it is about to cost him his government job, foreign Affairs minister Given Lubinda does not regret recalling Sylvia Masebo and Wynter Kabimba’ son from the embassy in Japan.

Tourism minister and Justice minister Wynter Kabimba have a 24 year old son Dick Masebo junior who was appointed deputy ambassador to Japan earlier last year.

When President Michael Sata visited Japan a few months ago, Dick Masebo as deputy ambassador could not properly organise the presidential visit resulting in the president sometimes photographed seated alone waiting for embassy staff.

This prompted Lubinda to recall Dick Masebo, who, according to government sources is now 24 years old. He does not have any academic qualification required for civil servants especially senior diplomats.

He has no work experience as this is his first job.

People close to the Masebo family say apart from this lack of education and experience, Dick Masebo has a mental problem that makes him unable to work properly.

The boy is said to be retarded and suffering from a certain mental condition that makes him ‘slow’.

This annoyed the parents of the boy who decided that Lubinda must be fired from government and expelled from the PF.

But sources close to Lubinda say that he does not regret recalling the illegitimate son of the two ministers as he was acting to preserve Zambia’s image and serve the president from further embarrassment.

But even if Masebo Dickson was recalled by the minister of Foreign Affairs, he is still working at the embassy. He has just been relegated. His position of Minister Counsellor (Deputy Ambassador) has been taken up by a Jim Sinyinza.

Dickson Masebo is now third in hierarchy at the embassy as he is just counsellor. See the positions here

Sylvia Tembo was married to Dick Masebo, a once upon rich businessman who funded her lavish lifestyle as a student at UNZA. She divorced him after he became broke.

She retained the name Masebo.

    Even if Zambia does not care for who they appoint, they need to still be careful with who represents them abroad. It is not a joke and can hurt a lot of things by sending someone with no qualifications or education. You just don’t send someone just because they are a relative of a politician. That is why we go to school and write exams and if we pass we go on the the next until we go to either university or college to learn about the skillsand training needed to do the job. The Zambian ministry is indeed a circus full of clowns.

    Its discusting reading the article and people’s comments on here. Some of you have no knowledge of the person in question his true background and you just throw your words about like someone suffering from uncontrollable Diarrhoea.. Don’t believe everything you read and here especially on an open platform such as this. When someone has inter personal skills and can relate to matters of the country and is well exposed degree or no degree becomes secondary. whether you like it or not he was elected and did his work and carried himself with poise and dignity and represented his country the best he could as a young man. His obviously very capable or else he wouldn’t have lasted as long as he has. Jealousy will not get anyone anywhere or speaking Ill of someone’s mental state is not a laughing matter because God will serve you well when the time comes. Get your facts right and contribute the best way not talking nonsense.

    zambian missions abroad are litred with personnels well connected to the ruling class of zambia.. and this nonsence has been in practice for years and years. Very few ordinary civil servants make it to work there if at all it happens. Nepotism and favouritism are rampat at the foreign affairs minitry and they are quite cancerous and a threat to the princiles and values of the country’s missions abroad!!!!!!!!

    Just to put records straight, Dick Masebo jr. was named after his father Dick Masebo senior who was into the transport business with his mother Ms. Namonje. Dick was born in the U.K., the mother went to deliver. Sylvia’s affair with Winter started when she was a councillor (after divorcing). While serving as Town Clerk, Winter was once asked about rumours of the affair during a live TV interview. He denied it of course and attributing the rumour to men, who lacked confidence to propose to Sylvia. Secondly, Hon. Lubinda though minister of foreign affairs has very little say on who is appointed and who is recalled. This process is currently handled out of plot 1. The ministry just gets instructions. In fact in many cases, people have turned up at the ministry with appointment letters issued by plot 1.

        Muleya is right. I’ve known both Dick sr. and Sylvia for a very long time and I know that Dick jr. was not born out of wedlock. Let’s not be malicious in our contributions. Your insistance on calling him illigitimate shows that you do not know much about the person you are talking about. At least, I do recognise your positive contribution on not discriminating against anyone on basis of their perceived mental state.

    “Why in the world should they employ a mentally retarded boy when there are many capable Zambians that can ably do the job of ambassador?”

    Because they are equally mentally retarded

      You have no right to discriminate against anyone for any reason. He may have a mental health issue but that does not make him uneployable.

      • comment-avatar

        Yes no one should be discriminated against disable pled or otherwise. Appointments should be on merit and even if it’s “picking your own” atleast pick those that have “something to offer”. Ambassodor at 24years of age? Where did he learn the trade of such an important role in in foreign deplomacy? It certainly wasn’t in the MMD.

    She ditched him for being broke. Hahahahaha! So when is Winter getting broke again so that she can go for others. Oh I was just wondering
    1.does she still have what it takes to hook a man.
    2. or she goes for men who have no taste!
    Just thinking aloud.
    I rest my case!

      Honestly why cant this HULE change her surname back to her maiden name,is it because Mr Masebo was a better lover than kabimba and Malupenga.Or is it that she is ashamed of her maiden name which is Tembo.

    @Nazili Pilinta – we have to be sensible about the calibre of persons holding such posts. It should be a reflection of how we view the host country.

    Indeed this is a bit unfair. We spend bloody millions hoping that one day we will be there at least even as Ambassador to Somalia. But as they say the story has already been told we are merely but re – acting what has already past. Due respect for Dicky Jr. over his mental state it was not really his fault but he is a mere victim hope he can get out of it. But damn anger on why a f@#king iliterate is heading a very high position when me with my Bachelors degree in blogging has never even boarded an air craft.
