KK convinces Sata to anoint Panji as his successor

19-year old Panji at military academy in UK in 1967

Cables from the OP  intercepted by the Watchdog show that former Zambian dictator Kenneth Kaunda has convinced president Michael Sata to anoint Kaunda’ son Panji as his successor.

The project was until  this article only known by Kaunda, Sata, Fred M’membe, Panji and a few OP officials in Zambia.

The idea was communicated to Sata by Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe when he last visited Zambia.

Panji is currently the deputy minister of works and Supply and is a trained soldier.

Sata has already agreed to anoint Kaunda’s first born son as next president of Zambia and has started implementing the process which to a large extent involves eliminating or intimidating into submission any potential presidential candidates in PF.

PF Secretary General Winter  Kabimba  considers himself the most powerful individual after Sata in the PF and believes he will succeed Sata.

He has been on a war-path fighting other people who have some hidden interest to run for president Under PF.  He has publicly taken on defence minister Geoffrey M wamba and recently Foreign Affairs minister Given Lubinda.

What Kabimba does not know is that he is just being used as mop for Panji Kaunda.

When Kabimba wrote a letter to Lubinda telling him to exculpate himself or face the wrath of the party, Kabimba was roundly condemned.

He was forced to review that whatever ever he does, he does it for Sata.

“When the President says go and write, as secretary general, I write. So please don’t shoot the messenger.

“I don’t have too much power other than that which the President and the central committee give me,” Kabimba told journalists and party cadres last Friday.

Kabimba said he was just a messenger who sometimes delivered unpleasant messages and that it was the nature of his job.

In those direct words, Kabimba revealed that it is Sata who is after Lubinda.

Why Fred M’membe is supporting the Move

M’membe and Kaunda are buddies. Both men pretend to be socialists, communists or such other trash.

For M’membe, Panji is a perfect candidate. He, like Sata can be controlled by him.

Panji himself despite being a soldier is a weakling. He is the first born son of Kaunda but until last year when he was appointed deputy minister, he was still depending on his father for a livelihood.

He tried farming after his father was kicked out of State House but he ended up being declared bankrupt after failing to pay suppliers of farming inputs. His father paid for him even though he was in his 60s already.

Such a weakling is good for the Bwinjifumu agenda.


Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe appears to be the only president who is close to Sata. He is the only who has ever visited Zambia from the time Sata became president.

Kenneth Kaunda has a lot of businesses in Zimbabwe and some of his children and grandchildren stay there. Some are in Namibia.

Kaunda was unsure of how to approach Sata with his idea of coming back in power through his son.

An opportunity presented itself when Mugabe visited Zambia. Kaunda asked Mugabe to moot the idea to Sata. Since then, it has just been a matter of finalising the project. There are unconfirmed reports that Mugabe was a major financier of the Sata from the time late leader Levy Mwanawasa referred to Zimbabwe as a sinking Titanic.

When Wynter Kabimba went to Zimbabwe to attend a ZANU- PF meeting in December last year, he told the world that his party derived the name PF from ZANU-PF.

Mugabe’s influence on Sata is huge.

Kaunda has since become very active and has started recruiting members for the PF.

Panji Kaunda went for his officers training at Britain’s Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, when he was 19 years old in 1967. He spent two year at Sandhurst .

See photos of  panji on the side as he arrived for training in UK.

It was Kaunda’s wish to train his children in military with the hope of one of them succeeding him as president one day.

But meallie meal shortages starting from 1987 derailed the plan and by 1991, he was forced out.

Kaunda started running the country in 1963 as prime minister before taking over as president in 1964 when the British left.

    Wynter Kabimba is Sata’a Blood Nephew, the Mother and Sata are from one family, period. So why should Wynter not be able to be given a chance? For all we care, Wynter knows more than we anticipate about the President’s doings and thats why we see such likened unreasonable behaviour from the two of them. “PF is Sata and Sata is PF”, basopo

    The watch dog truly has eyes beyond those of the post news paper.

    Most of the revelation from you guys have been fulfilled.

    I trust even this will be true.

    I still remember not very long ago how Micheal Chilufya Sata was used to kick out, BY,Christon Tembe, Miyanda and like, just the way Kabimba is used today.
    Only to appoint Mwanawasa.

    Panji is the next of Kin, unless Kabimba eliminates him now. His is just disturbing the so called strong PF.

    Joseph Patrick Kennedy Sr, father of assassinated US President JFK,and his wife (Rose) hatched a master plan to dominate American politics by having, first, his son Joseph P Kennedy Jr as president. When Joe Jr was killed in WWW2 (setback 1), Joe Sr shifted his attention to his second son Jack (JFK), and using his connections and every trick known to man managed to have Jack first in the Senate and then in the White House. Setback number 2 JFK was assassinated, and Rose remarked it was time for Robert P Kennedy to go for the White House. The rest is history. We all know how politics eventually destroyed all the dreams Joe Sr had fantasized. Is this what dear, beloved KK wants for his children, grandchildren and great grand children?

    “See photos of panji on the side as he arrived for training in UK.” Where are the rest of the photos? Have just seen one.

    Surely we cant go backward when every one is trying to go forward. We only have 3 years to the MDG finishing point, why should we go back to the 1990s for sake of one person.

  17. Zambia in the sun  December 17, 2012 at 21:11

    Good planning, Looks like a state funral is anticipated.

  18. Mphangwe  December 17, 2012 at 20:20

    This is an interesting matrix. Sata’s political constituency is vested anongst the Bembas in Northern Province and his new Muchinga Province. Mugabe’s constituency is centred among a sector of the Shona-speaking peoples of Zimbabwe. KK lost his national constituency when MMD took over the reigns of power in Zambia. Panji has no viable constiuency anywhere in Zambia. Betty’s children have actually lost their genetic links with the peoples of Mambwe District. Apparently, the PF is a personal property of Sata, such that if he goes out of political oblivion, that will spell the end of PF as a party. The African politics where power is inherited through family links has long disappeared. Therefore, KK is not investing well for the welfare of his children.

    it is not true

      What do you know???

  20. KATONGO NSAMBE  December 17, 2012 at 17:11

    KK must leave Zambia alone please. There too many unanswered questions around him. First of all, could someone please confirm whether the so-called Kaunda Children;s Foundation or something like actually does not exist.

    Rumourville has it that its a fundraising joing for his failure sons who still depend on him for livelihood.

  21. Shrek!  December 17, 2012 at 16:50

    Sata is kissing KK’s *&% big time and this wouldn’t surprise me!

    The article lacks real news, it sounds to me has if it is from the dust bins or plastics toilets used by mwenyas

  26. Kent  December 17, 2012 at 15:48

    Just because KK urged well meaning Zambians to support Sata (Not HH,Nevers Mumba) and hate has started…. You
    UPND, MMD Catastrophies

  27. The fools don't see.  December 17, 2012 at 15:24

    You guys Kaunda is not Bemba,but a Nyasalander who entered zambia with his father(David kaunda) when he(KK) was 8yrs old.That is why FTJ deported KK back to Malawi. Its a pity the chap managed to dribble the likes of kapwepwe,Kamanga,Grey Zulus ,sipalos ,winas etc and became Presdent.Sorry we had Kaundas for 27yrs in power.We don’t need them again ooh.

    • Zaza  December 18, 2012 at 00:44

      KK was NEVER deported to Malawi – you have your facts WRONG!!!

      When KK was president, all Bembas were happy and he was Bemba. When he left office, he was no longer Bemba.


      • zambian  December 18, 2012 at 15:02

        The former head of state KK is not Bemba though his parents settled in Bemba landa. This country has never had a Bemba President. I hate tribalists, I really do!!

  28. zedianse  December 17, 2012 at 15:08

    Absolute irredemable selfishness by Kaunda, Mmembe, Kabimba and the MMD foolish MPs like Namushit.lambe.

    Total meyhem for sure, due to high levels of selfishness!

    We thought we could love Kaunda for once but alas, the old man is extremely selfish!

    Anyway, GOD always has a way. KK was booted out in 1991. This time around, he will be lucky to survive the Libya/Gadaffi formula.

  29. Lubinda  December 17, 2012 at 14:44

    If it is true, it would be another wasted years for Zambia.

  36. Jeff Mwanza  December 17, 2012 at 12:54

    Hmmmmm, I am not sure if the article articulates facts that can be useful in analysing the mayhem caused by Kabimba!!?.. Fellow Zambians, let’s not allow a situation where the country grounds to a halt due to selfish bastards who want to rule the country with impunity!!! There are capable Zambians who are yet to be born for that top most job!!! We dont need the likes of Kabimba Panji, Mulenga to lead the country. My dear fellow zambian’s, let’s do it and we have done it before!!

  37. London  December 17, 2012 at 12:40
