The Sata we supported died long time ago, but Kambwili says Fr. Bwalya is getting mad

Bwalya with his cadres outside Radio Phoenix

Outspoken Catholic Priest Fr. Frank Bwalya has finally announced his intention to form his political party because the PF government and president Michael Sata have betrayed the struggle they fought for under the PF.

But Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili described Fr. Bwalya as a mad chap who should feel ashamed of himself and should not mislead the people of Zambia.

Speaking when he featured on Let the People Talk programme on radio Phoenix, Fr. Bwalya said the Micheal Sata they campaigned for died and was buried a long time ago.

He said there was no way any normal government would be spending huge resources on stupid and useless by-elections when the country was facing many challenges such as lack of drugs in hospitals.

“Sata has lost an opportunity to be the Messiah for this country because he is being held hostage by some individuals with a lot of money. This country basically has an absent president and when he appears in public, all he does is pronouncing someone’s name in an insulting way (in reference to Sata’s pronouncing of Fackson Shamenda as Fuck-well during labour day celebrations).

Fr. Bwalya, who said he will be addressed as president Fr. Bwalya,  has since launched a yellow card campaign against the PF government and its leadership and has since called on Zambians to rise-up and be counted.

He bragged that he would make a good president of Zambia by surrounding himself with professionals as one does not necessarily to be a good economist to lead a country.

He accused the PF leaders of getting taxes from the poor and amassing wealthy for themselves which they are using for building their houses and buying expensive vehicles.

“I am calling on other opposition leaders like Hakainde Hichilema to come together and save the people of Zambia from this impending disaster by the PF government. People should not judge Mr. Hichilema by the lies that have been perpetuated by other people in the past. Hakainde muntu mubotu,” he said.

Fr. Bwalya who said his interest was not the presidency for now asked other opposition leaders like Mr. Hichilema and Nevers Mumba to welcome him in fighting a common cause of removing the PF government.

He said as someone who suffered a lot for PF, by selling badges and books for survival while campaigning for the party, he feels let down by how the struggle has been lost, including non-fulfilment of promises to the people.

And calling on the same programme, Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili told Fr. Bwalya not to mislead the people of Zambia by being over-ambitious.

“You are just a very ambitious and confused Fr. Bwalya who will not go anywhere. People are cheating you and you should go back to the pulpit as you are getting mad,” said Mr. Kambwili.

He disclosed that when he (Kambwili) was demoted as Foreign Affairs Minister, Fr. Bwalya went to his office to lured him to resign and form a political party because they were popular enough, but Kambwili refused.

“Umuntu nga afuma kubupatili,alamba ukupena, so Bwalya nawamba ukupena. Bwelelamofye ku church ulepususha abantu,” Kambwili said.

Kambwili said there was no was Fr. Bwalya can blame the PF for fuel price increase because there are very few beneficiaries of fuel subsidies since many people do not drive.

But in response, Fr. Bwalya said from now the people of Zambia will judge who is mad between those who are stealing people’s money in government and himself.

Fr. Bwalya has since appointed former PF member Eric Chanda as the first Secretary General and Emmanuel Chilekwa as Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations.

    Be realistic banne!! Ba Kambwili under rate Fr. Bwalya at your own perial. Remember he can bring Copperbelt to stand still do not forget so early you are only two years in government. Mauritious is being rulled by a Diskey Joke (DJ) in your own reasoning meaning “of all the people”. Bus and Taxi drivers are up in arms looking for solace. Bwezani left you with plent of maize which you even without shame brought prices to Kr55.00 from Kr48.00. Well, watch the space Fr. Bwalya is on loose and he said it on the programe you will now sit up. Nii..Tiye… Tiye. Seperating goats from sheep.

    This is madness in Zambia, how can this chidombo Kambwili say that very few people drive and therefore only a few people benefited from fuel subsidies. How can you have a minister of this caliber?

    Now I understand why common sense is not that common in Zambia, what is common is not common sense. You Chi Kambwili goods need to be transported from producers to the consumers, higher fuel prices simply means increasing the cost of production which in the end will cause what we call cost push inflation. Go back to night school may be you might learn something.

      From the above statement, one can deduce that we have a wrong crop of leaders running the affairs of the nation. How does this minister fail to understand that transport or energy in general affects everyone, even the very poor. It is a shame that this minister only sees benefits in a direct way, which means he standards for the haves and not the poor who are the most affected by the indirect cost, since they have no control over such. What a minister? lack of education again showing to be the difference in the above statement.

    Zambian politics is now getting interesting. The Father has the potential to unite opposition. He speaks the right language, he is confident and risk taker. PF has been given a big blow. The SATA we knew is long gone. PF should call for new elections to proof themselves.

    Iam shocked to hear a minister calling father Bwalya mad before he is certfied by the doctor. This is the minister of youth.What will the youth gain from that fat minister who has totally know how of what effect will the rising of petrol, diesel, parrafin and other related products. Anyway that what pf leaders are. Father Bwalya dont be carword tell them and put sense in people like kambwili.

Am equally disappointed with this government, we shall forever be with you as long as naiwe you dont get spoiled by the same people you are calling ba mpandamano.

    typical dull pf official ati fuel prices dont affect majority of zambians because most people dont drive yaba mr kambwili let me educate you it affects everyone because prices of goods and services also increase due to increased cost of production e.g transport costs or freight costs…………

    So The sata we voted for died a long time ago!!!! No wonder that one in state house is only asking strange questions, talking against BALD HEADED PEOPLE, swearing people, creating districts… AAWE SURE!

ITS TIME TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Father Frank Bwalya is level headed. The PF government has been attempting go silence the masses. We need people of Fr Bwalya’s calibre.

    Let Dr Mumba and HH get together and fight this visionless govt.
    Zambia belongs to all zambians and not to Kambwili and his cohorts. We stand ready to defend this land for posterity will judge us.

    Kambwili’s civility is below par, he must have been level headed than to react that Fr Bwalya is mad. the current crop of PF leaders are brainless. Look at the Vice Presidents outburst on South Africa. Very undiplomatic. Shameful to say the least.

    Fr Frank, go ahead son of the soil. We are with you. Lets start the revolution. PF is one term party. Wapya Baisa should be the slogan of the new party!

    There goes Kashimba Chimbwili! No clue in simple economics. I listened to the interview and Kashimba’s phone call and comments were full of anger and misplaced. Shame why vent your anger on Fr Bwalya? He sounded like one who is guilty of corruption in the pf that Fr Bwalya mentionmed.

      No! You can have even a thoussnd political parties. All but only two or three will be of nuisance value really! Its nice once in a while to have to liten to your own voice and perhaps that of your own shadow. Or better still we give them the benefit of doubt who knows, among the new creations could be one that finally delivers this country to the promised land. So far we have only belly fillers. How many people ever imagined the PF could collapse and fizzle out within a space of 2 years. VIVA MULTIPARTYISM.

  27. St. Vincent   May 3, 2013 at 12:02

    Fr. Bwalya is correct, the Sata we voted for died along time ago. The one we see is jut a shadow of him and 2016 is so far away for us to remove this shadow. As for kambwili, kwa nyelela kona kwa siya ngana.

    “Umuntu nga afuma kubupatili,alamba ukupena, so Bwalya nawamba ukupena. Bwelelamofye ku church ulepususha abantu,” Kambwili said.
    PF will never cease to amaze me, when Father Bwalya was campaigning with them they did not see his madness, I mean even when he slaughtered a chicken. They only see his “madness” when he turns against them. But I can see their worry, this is a firebrand in the fashion of Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe, so they can feel the heat, ask KK.

    The minister thinks that fuel is only enjoyed by a few people who drive…well, i have just seen something in the Daily Nation to the effect that bus fares have gone up.i hope he wont say its only a few people who benefit from buses!the minister should be told fuel price largely determines the prices of most commodities and therefore affects the whole population.

  32. Denilson Motomoto   May 3, 2013 at 11:55

    Mr. kambwili, you as PF are in control of this country as at now. Prove Bwalya wrong by your output.Needless to intimidate or belittle him.

    I love this Guy. Fr. Bwalya you are one of a kind. I wish everyone can listen to this man especially those that voted for this failed government. Like I said before Mr. Sata’s drive to becoming President of Zambia was not to solve problems and help revamp the country but to prove his critics and the late Chiluba wrong for not choosing him but the truth is that the late Chiluba was very right not to have chosen the “MAN OF NO ACTION”. YOUR DAYS IN OFFICE ARE NUMBERED. START PACKING YOUR BAGS.

    Actually Kambwili is the one who is mad and a big ignoramus. Diesel/Petrol are NOT just used in vehicles. How can such a stupid person be Minister with such a myopic view of thinking? There is a lot of machinery that is driven by these fuels and this the reason why fuel increments have a chain reaction.

    I rely liked the confrontation btwn Kambwili & Father Bwalya. Kambwili’s language ws uncalled for tho expected coz hes a hooligan after all.

  48. Mwebe   May 3, 2013 at 11:42

    Kambwili? what qualifications do you have? you sound to be very behind with simple economics.The increase in fuel will have a tricle down effects.Example

    Fuel Increase=Transport increase=Food increase.These increases will affect a common Zambian bwana.As that is not enough,ZESCO is increasing electricity tarrifs since according to you very few houses have electricity….but remember the production costs of basic needs will go up,that means all goods will go up.Hope Kambwili you now understand,this is the bigest blunder PF government has done…Chili eko tuya?

    Go for it Fr Bwalya. The Leadership you promoted can’t read the GLOBAL ECONOMIC activities and the importance of INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS. Fuel prices decline, they increase. Chishilu Kambwili tells us very few people drive. Does he realize the implications of the fuel increase? Bus fares, farming equipment, industries e.c.t.. Are the current leaders normal in their brains??? Viva Fr. Frank.
