Sata does a ‘donchi kubeba’ on Barotse activist Muntangelwa

President Michael Sata has done a ‘donchi kubeba’ on former Barotse activist Mutangelwa Imasiku whose ambassador job to Angola has now been given to Barbara Chilangwa.

President Sata upon assuming office personally handed Mr. Muntangelwa the appointment letter as ambassador to Angola with a view to silence him but the job has now been given given to Sata’s relative Ms. Chilangwa, leaving Muntangelwa languishing and jobless in the streets of Lusaka.

Sources close to the former vocal Barotseland activist said he was very instrumental in personally campaigning for PF in Western province when he was cheated by Mr. Sata that he would implement the Barotseland Agreement within 90 days when in power.

When Sata assumed office, he personally called him to State House to pick-up the letter of appointment and do other diplomatic formalities such as going for the short diplomatic course which he completed.

The Zambian government also grabbed his ordinary passport that allowed him freedom to express himself as an ordinary citizen and gave him a diplomatic passport where he can only speak with clearance from his ‘employers’ at Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Sources said Mutangelwa is now living like a destitute because he is not on government payroll and can no longer do his usual international business errands because he doesn’t have an ordinary passport as it was grabbed by the state.

As things stand now, Mr. Sata has effectively silenced the former activist who was even arrested for his Barotse demands because as a diplomat, he needs clearance from government to speak.

Sources said the ‘donchi kubeba’ government cheated Mr. Muntangelwa the Angola government did not accept him and so would be re-deployed elsewhere.

But almost two years since PF came into office when Muntangelwa was appointed, government has not gotten back to him and his friend Mr. Sata has completely shut his doors to him.

Mr. Sata has so far openly refused to honour his election campaign promise made to Lozis of implementing the Barotse Agreement despite the Rodger Chongwe Commission of Inquiry that recommended for the same.

The commission report that was financed at a huge expense to tax-payers is just gathering dust somewhere at State House as Sata does not want to entertain it anymore.

    Mutangelwa and all Barotseland people should join hands and liberate Barotseland. In independent Barotseland Mutangelwa would be a senior cabinet minister not an ambassador.

    All you people who are saying negative things against mutangelwa are styupit idiots, for more than twenty years this man gave up his life for the cause of barotseland, none of you lozis appreciated him and instead rediculed him, how many of you took a meal to him at the time he was in prison? if it wasn’t for the likes of HH and sinyinda the detainees would have starved. today all of you are freely able to open your asses to speak about barotseland without turning your heads in fear of been arrested, because of one man, mutangelwa, learn to appreciate. I CAN ASSURE YOU THE DONCHE KUBEBA WONT SILENCE HIM. Amafi yenu

    Mr Mutangelwa got exactly what he deserves and being left in limbo might be bad for him but he is wealthy enough to live till he dies. He doesn’t need a job what he needs is to be quiet. He was in over his head.

    Mutangelwa and other educated lozis like him have themselves to blame. All the educated lozis along the line of rail including Nelly Mutti, Bishop Imakando etc were so gullible and voted PF and Sata. They can’t blame anyone because even prophet Chanda Chimba, III warned them. In Western province itself only Nalolo and Mongu cetral voted PF and Sata. Can you imagine villagers with little or no formal school education rejected Sata.

    He was rejected along time ago by the Angolan Gvt bcoz the Angolan gvt recevd some intelligence information about Barotseland which extends into Angola, so they dont want anyone connected to this movement!! get facts u Lozis!! He should have gone a year ago.

    The President has all the powers to choose who to work with at what time of his ternure of office. The removal of the Barotse activist from foreign service should not worry any well meaning zambian.Let other people also feel what it means to be an ambassordor and stop insulting our beloved President.
