PF cadre Fr. Chibuye chases opposition delegates from Muchinga constitution convention

Fr. Patrick Chibuye, the PF cadre who is chairing the Muchinga province constitution convention has expelled two delegates associated with the opposition.

Fr. Chibuye, a well-known PF cadre who also serves also as Mpika Catholic diocese director of Caritas chased Harriet Siamutondo, a businesswoman and a member of the Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) and Ruth Mulenga from the Zambia Conservative Party (ZCP).

Chibuye (in the photo) said the two successfully masqueraded as delegates to the ongoing  Muchinga province constitution convention but were expelled for failing to meet minimum qualifications for admission to the forum.

He said the two also tried to influence the proceedings of the convention.

Fr. Chibuye claimed that the banning of the two delegates was not political but in line with guidelines from the technical committee drafting the Zambian constitution on admission to the convention.

Fr. Chibuye said the decision to expel the duo was arrived at after establishing that they came from Lusaka Province, contrary to guidelines that delegates to a particular provincial convention must come from within their province.

Fr. Chibuye said it was discovered that the two political parties which the duo purported to represent have no party structures in Muchinga province to warrant their admission to the convention.

He noted that despite the two presenting official invitation letters to attend the convention, they did not qualify to be delegates by virtue of coming from another province other than Muchinga.

Fr. Chibuye revealed that in consultation with the technical committee, a plan may be devised on how best to get back the money the two received as allowances and a possible prosecution for obtaining money on false pretences.

The Muchinga province constitution convention has since broken into mini committees to look at individual clauses of the draft constitution before reconvening tomorrow for submissions to the main plenary session.

    honestly speaking! whether this father is a PF sympathizer or not, he’s absolutely right! the guidelines were not formulated by him and he should not be castigated or insulted. The guidelines says so. i uphold him for being so professional. its unfortunate that reporters like the author of this article are bend on one side. he has not offered what we call balance reporting! did he consult the technical committee whether the clegy man was right?

    The church must withdraw this father from this group. He is not a dignified representative of the church. The church is not seen in positive light as result.

    The church must bring sanity into politics, but avoid any nitty gritties. This man or rather father, is very petty. He is even talking about the pieces of silver the two got!! I thought he would speak of finding out how genuine the invitations were first, and then leave the issue of persecuting to the right department of gov? Our clergy in Zambia has lost my respect – including Nevers Mumba. Please serve God. You seem to be osclilating between serving God and mamon.

    A cadre is a body of devoted party loyalists who spend the majority of their free time organizing their party toward a mass party mobilisation. It is a tightly knit group of zealots who are active in advancing the interests of a revolutionary party.
    The duties of cadres are to educate and lead party and non-party members of society and to ensure that party policies and directives are carried out faithfully.
    Father Chibuye on the other hand is Mpika Catholic diocese director of Caritas. If he is agreeable with the policies of a particular party as they affect his flock, he can not be described as a cadre but a patriot

    If what the father is saying true, then the two are off types and needed to be rogued out. But if its the other way round, then its very unfortunate. We are told the two are business women but from which district/ province.

    Yes! If the guidelines stipulate that members should come from the province, and these two came from Lusaka, then the Father is right. Why can’t these ladies sit in Lusaka. Get the money back! And please, proper chizungu whenever you post an article:”who also serves also as…” SIC!

    Can someone out there give us the guidelines being referred to here by the Chairman. Only then can we know who is at fault between the Chairman and the 2 ladies. It would be subjective to base our views on the story Headline.

    I don’t see anything wrong here. The ‘father’ was acting within his rights and due responsibilities as any in his capacity should have done!
