Nalubamba needs counselling

CLAIMS by Senior Chief Bright Nalubamba that President Edgar Lungu has been sending emissaries to arrange a meeting with him exhibit the worst kind of immaturity. Obviously, President Lungu exercises his discretion on which traditional leader to consult. The nature of the issue at hand dictates who is approached for necessary

Deal with detractors

Clearly the Patriotic Front has many issues to resolve. Most important of which is the emergence and development of a counter party and schism positioning itself for the 2021 elections. Such character as Chishimba Kambwili have presented themselves as larger than life ogres posing an existential threat to the fortunes of

Divisive chiefs

THE behaviour exhibited by a fraction of traditional leaders in Southern Province is a recipe for tribal divisions in our country and must be curtailed before it is too late. It is quite disheartening and unacceptable that some of our traditional leaders have fallen prey to regionalism and fray of political

Kambwili is lying

OUTSPOKEN embattled Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili’s attention-seeking stunt in his continued pursuit of political relevance is not only irritating but also childish. In a Facebook posting yesterday, Mr Kambwili makes a very outlandish and alarming statement about the imaginary security threat on his life. “I woke up this morning (Sunday)

Bombs won’t stop us

WE are not surprised that our newspaper, the Daily Nation, has been targeted by disgruntled elements in their bid to try and silence the paper. But they should be told in no uncertain terms that they are fighting a losing battle. No amount of intimidation will sway what the newspaper stands

Chishimba acted foolishly

EMOTIONAL outbursts by United Progressive People (UPP) leader Saviour Chishimba in the wake of President Edgar Lungu’s proclamation of a threatened state of emergency border on defamation of the President. It is clear that Dr Chishimba, just like many other disgruntled opposition political party leaders, has blatantly failed to distinguish between

Zambia not dictatorship

WE agree with outgoing Africa Union Economic, Social and Cultural Council (AU-ECOSOCC) Presiding Officer Joseph Chilengi that there is no dictatorship in Zambia because this portrays a true picture of the state of the nation. Zambians of good intent and the international community must now know that the dictatorship mantra is

Don’t be misled

It is cynical for propagandists who are self-professed constitutional law experts to mislead members of the public that the invocation of Article 31 by President Edgar Lungu implies Zambia is under a state of public emergency, thereby causing apprehension. Foremost, it is crucially important to underscore that what has caused apprehension
