Masebo was born Sylvia Murambiwa in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia)

Filed under: More News |

Tourism and Arts Minister who is also Chongwe PF MP is not a full Zambian citizen, according to documents and information obtained from Chieftainess Nkomesha’s palace.

Sources from the palace said Ms. Masebo was actually born Sylvia Murambiwa in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) and only came to Zambia in the 1980s with her late mum and uncle (big brother to the mother).

She came from Rhodesia in the late 70s when they were running away from wars of Ian Smith fighting for independence.

Her mother became a best friend to Mukamambo Nkomesha the current chieftainess and left Sylvia Murambiwa Tembo in her hands.

Tembo is the name of her foster father who married Sylvia’s mother upon arrival in Zambia.

Sources said the uncle almost married the Chieftainess but the Indunas had to advise her that it was against tradition not marry foreigners and the marriage couldn’t go ahead.

But Silvia Murambiwa Tembo who later got married to a businessman Mr. Dick Masebo has since stuck with the royal family.

President Michael Sata and Guy Scott as opposition leaders kept on referring Ms. Masebo as a foreigner who was Mugabe’s niece.

  12. ZIMBWIS HAVE A PROBLEM EVEN HERE IN RSA. WHEN THEY ENTER A COUNTRY THEY LOOK DOWN ON THE LOCALS, FEELING MORE EDUCATED, CIVILIZED & EVEN GET RSA ID’S AND STEAL JOBS FROM THE SOUTH AFRICANS WHILE INSULTING THEM IN THEIR CROCODILE ACCENTS. THATS WHAT TRIGGERED XENOPHOBIA. THIS SYLVIA MURAMBIWA HAS USED HER BODY TO ABUSE THE WEAK ZAMBIAN SYSTEM TO THE POINT OF APPOINTING A RETARDED SON TO BE AN AMBASSADOR IN JAPAN. KK THE MALAWIAN, FTJ THE KASSAI, RB THE ZIMBWI/MALAWIAN, SATA THE MWACHUSA FROM TANZANIA, THE DESTRUCTION THEY DID IS IRREVESIBLE!! ZAMBIA IS DOOMED TO THE FOREIGNERS.

  13. Mwakalombe once said Sylvia is his first cousin…so how are they related? Mwakalombe’s biological father was a Sibanda but denied being his father when he was born and that’s how he grew up using his mother’s name and the mother was Lenje! Is there anyone who knows the relationship????

  15. Seyuba is a pure Angolan and thats why he is not patriotic to Zambia.Most Chiefs in NWP dont want him.He transferred DC kANYAKULA who was a threat to him thinking he might take over as he was becoming too popular in Solwezi.Since he wants to contest in Mwinilunga,he also transferred DC KAYEKESI to Kasempa.Now PF is very weak in Solwezi and Mwinilunga.He is strategically proping up MMD in NWP and i now strongly believe that Seyuba worked with Chanda Chimba on those election adverts.If PF continues to dose off in NWP,they will regret.

  17. She is a foreigner yes we know, the uncle wanted to mary Mukamambo Chieftainess Nkomesha, but he was quite cruel and was always beating the Chief, The Soli Tribal Gurus have not been happy with this. Hence the failed marriage between the Chief and the uncle to Silvia.However no one is Jealousy with Silvia, even if she is favoured by the Chieftainess, we know that Mwakalombe is more close to the Solis Silvia will remain silvia Masebo, hiding in Dick’s Name because the Tembo name is un traceble.Only in UNIP where she gained some status.

    • She has been a public figure surviving on tax payers, so Zambians are entitled to knowing what are true ID is, and whether she is Zambian. How do you have a person with so many names.

      Of course you PF chaps don`t see sense in this, understandably so, you have very low IQ.
