Leaked Memo: UPND Cabinet To Comprise 90% Tonga Speaking Ministers

leakedA leaked memo suggesting a list of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s cabinet has been circulated. The cabinet comprises 90 percent Tonga speaking lawmakers. The UPND stronghold is Southern Province where most of its MPs will be drawn after election on August 11.

Trusted lawyer Jack Mwiimbu is set to become Prime Minister as a compromise to the region which has demonstrated a lot of loyalty to the party since its founding in 1998.

Mwiimbu’s position is said to be a good balance considering a northerner, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, will be occupying the second most top place in the party.

    If this is true, it is extremely alarming, because not even the late Mazoka would have sunk so low to allow such demonic and divisive thinking in this time and era, MHSRIP. However, personally lam not surprised, because, l worked in an Organization were we had a sub-management of three people, a Lozi and two Tongas, who selfishly disbanded whatever was discussed and resolved by a eye pleasing management.As if this was not enough, these characters caused tribal terror with no sense of shame at all. If you are Bemba, you return no right to advise management’s blind decisions, no matter how grave the short comings are.This saw the entire management, and those who boot licked for favors get fired, because of criminal negligence caused and nurtured by tribalism. As l write, one character is in Jail rotting.Zambians let us be careful and analyze the situation correctly, otherwise we shall have ourselves to blame for wrong decision making at the polling station, and in that voting booth. No malice involved, but simply analytical reaction as a patriotic Zambian.

      Thanks for what you have said about our friends. They have a very BIG PROBLEM, and if we make a mistake on the 11th August 2016, we shall have ourselves to blame. These guys can never be trusted with power, others the who country will be gone. They are TOO TRIBALISTIC to the bone.
      The best would be to retire their chief tribal guru H H., by voting for E C L.
      Viva, E C L, Viva P F.

    This is cheap propaganda desperately trying to use tribalism to detract us from voting for the right thing. It will not work.

      This is not cheap propaganda as it has not even been denied by UPND. What people above are saying about other tribes being careful of voting for UPND is timely. Just recently, new UNZA Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Luke Mumba was picked from among others. But there was an attempt to ensure he does not take up the job by Lozi registrar, Sitali, UNZA Council Chairperson Namucana Musiwa and her uncle, Education Minister Kaingu. They deliberately chose not to inform Prof. Mumba who was working for NEPAD in South Africa and cheated to GRZ that Prof. Mumba was making unrealistic demands. Meanwhile they were preparing Prof. Imasiku Nyambe to take up the position after having discredited Pro. Enala Mwase with GRZ. It had to take alert members of staff at UNZA and the union to inform GRZ and Professor Mumba. Afterwhich GRZ exposed Kaingu. This scheme was hatched by Lozis and their Tonga cousins at UNZA.Guys, this is real!!!

        Zebige you have an ear on the ground. Prof. Mumba was in South Africa working at Nepad regional offices. The lozis and Tongas created an impression that Prof. Nyambe outperformed Prof. Mumba but would not be appointed VC because he was Lozi. The truth is that Prof. Mumba is a man of vision hence his former senior position at NEPAD while Nyambe is incoherent and temparemental. The scheme failed and failed.

  12. crazy nigga   August 2, 2016 at 7:13 am

    So people should prefer a non Bantu botatwe who will appoint a non Bantu botatwe cabinet as opposed to a Bantu botatwe. Your logic is a bit off. You are asking me to be tribalist to avoid tribalism. You want us to choose a tyrant and economic mismanagement specialist above a would be tyrant and economic manager. Hmmm lets see work to death or starve to death?

  13. cHAM cHAM   August 2, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    The PF minions are really desperate to save face.

    There is really no truth in this.

    God will vindicate the opposition and one day you will realise that you were actually wasting time in this PF thing.

  14. Mutale Chileshe   August 2, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    This is a powerful and focused cabinet. I totally support it, viva HH.

  15. Chileshe Chepela   August 2, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    Choosing a cabinet is a prerogative of the President!! He will Choose his cabinet after next week. Give him time please!! Easy easy!!

    i am wondering why people should doubt this cabinet. if it so happened here on earth, this is the only cabinet hh can appoint because he can only win elections in bantu botatwe kingdom. Greta people of Zambia should avoid this from happening by voting for PF as Zambia is bigger that the so called bantu botatwe!

  19. Patrick Hatch   August 3, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    Total lies please Zambians PF can do anything to make sure that they return power. This cabinet is not there.PF let us just play our game well than this. Zambians wake up and vote for the right President and party. HH cannot do this he is a respected man not cheap.

  20. PPCh   August 4, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    Secrets have leaked from different organisations, sources and times and it is not strange, therefore let people be patient and if it happens it will be proved out of what has been speculated that HH is leopard in sheep’s skin.

  21. Thaurai   August 5, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    So in short, we will have no Ministry of Education under UPND. I’m sure the real document wouldn’t exclude such a ministry be it from PPP, PF or UPND. This what should make anyone dispute this document. It was conceived by one person written and published by the same person with no one to proof read it. I’m sure the whole UPND wouldn’t have missed this one.
