Mangani (middle) with RB and local Harry Porter (on floor)

Former Home Affairs Minister Lameck Mangani says he regrets having betrayed Rupiah Banda for the Patriotic Front according to  family sources.

The source has told the Zambian Watchdog that Mangani has been telling members of his family and close friends that he developed hate for Rupiah Banda after he was demoted from being Minister of Home Affairs to Deputy Minister Works and Supply but did not know that he will be used and dumped by the Patriotic Front.

Mangani who is reported to be one of the people behind the newly formed People’s Party headed by former Works and Supply Minister Mike Mulongoti accuses Paramount Chief Mpezeni and Energy Permanent Secretary George Zulu as the people behind his misery.
“Lameck believes it is Mpezeni and George Zulu who have been telling Sata not to give him any position in government because he says Mpezeni and George Zulu by tribe have fallen in Sata’s tribalism scheme and would like to segregate between Chewas and Ngoni’s” the source said.
The source said Mangani just realised recently that Paramount Chief Mpezeni hated former President Rupiah Banda because Rupiah Banda is Chewa by tribe and gave more respect to the Chewa chief Paramount Chief Gawa Undi.
The source said Mangani has even learnt that the chances of him contesting the Chipata Central seat on the PF ticket in case the Supreme Court nullifies the seat are Zero as Paramount Chief Mpezeni has told Sata that he would like a Ngoni not a Chewa to contest the seat.
Mangani has also been telling people that he is also sure that it is Paramount Chief Mpezeni and George Zulu that influenced President Sata to drop former Justice Minister Sebastian Size Zulu.
“Mangani has realised that President Sata is a very serious tribalist and is using illiterates like Mpezeni to advance his tribalism, even in Northern Province he has brought divisions between the Bembas on one side and the Mambwes, Lungus and Namwangas on the other.
The source said Mangani doubts if Energy Regulations Board Chairperson George Chabwera will survive in this government especially that Paramount Chief Mpezeni sits on the Rural Electrification Authority board.

  5. It is human to error. Let Mangani go to RB openly and apologise. The comments that Mpezeni is tribal are true. He thinks only a Ngoni should be president in EP hence the hate he has had for RB.

    I am however disppoited with the formation of new party. You and Mulongoti will not go anywhere because you have no morals. JUST JOIN UPND AND START TELLING PEOPLE IN MY MOTHER LAND (EP) THAT HH IS A SOLUTION AND THAT THE NONSENSE OF TRIBALISM BEMBAS TALK ABOUT TONGAS ARE NOT TRUE.

    LET’S GO BACK TO HISTORY ANF TELL EASTERNS THE TRUTH. MORE OVER CHEWAS ( THE MAJORITY IN EP) ARE NOT MBUYAS WITH BEMBAS, SO NEVER MIND MPEZENI’S ASSOCIATION WITH SATA. BIRDS OF THE SAME FURTHER FLOCK TOGETHER.

    FACTS ARE THAT:
    1. TONGAS HAD TO PART AWAY WITH ANC TO PAVE WAY FOR UNIP
    2. THE MASTER MINDERS OF MMD WERE TONGAS AND LOZIS BUT PAVED WAY FOR A BEMBA (CHILUBA) TO LEAD. THE PROBLEM IS THAT BEMBA DONT APPRECIATE CURTESY, THEY THINK THEY DESERVE IT.

    SO FELLOW CHEWAS LET US NOT BE MISLED BY MPEZENI’S ATTITUDE BUT LET’S FOLLOW THE INTEGRITY AND ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION FIGHT OF THE OUR LEADER KALONGA GAWA UNDI LIGACY.(READ A BOOK KALONGA GAWA UNDI THE TENTH AND SEE HOW HE WORKED WITH CHIEFS FROM LOZI. TONGA AND LUNDA LAND TO MENTION BUT A FEW IN THE LIBERATION OF ZAMBIA)

    COME 2016 TIKAVOTELE HH NDIPO ULIMI UDZAPITA PATSOGOLO.

  7. Tribalism is for the unschooled and the uneducated. Tribalism just like political-cadre-mentality is dangeorous especially at a time when the weaked are the ones striking the air, then, the height of the innocent will suffer. MPEZENI, NKOMESYA should indeed begin to re-consider their stance on their treaties with political parties. Politics is not like kingdoms. One day, Zambians will kick out PF and these chiefs with cadre mentality will hear strange drums sounding. This is not good for them. Let them advise the GOVT against the tribalism.

  8. Apology does not break any friendship.It is not too late for Mulongoti,Mangani,Zulu,Mpombo,P.Mwanawawasa & others to apologise to R.B.

  9. Mangani is ashamed of his background and should not be trusted. Sata is very intellegent, he is able to foresee that Mangani can equally betay him just as be betrayed RB. Who wants to work with a traitor any way? PF is a party of intellegent people,they are able to differenciate between fakes and real friends and Mangani happens to be a fake, hence his being left out. Avoid embarassing the PF GOVT, Mangani is not a person any party can befriend,even Mulongoti will regret working with this fellow. The man is only concerned with his tummy,he is not worried about people he claims to represent, that is why he can afford to jump from party to party in search of food,what an MP.

  10. Lamedk Mangani has no principles and is now hidding behind the Ngoni/Chewable politics. The people of Chipata and Eastern Province have always respected principled people and not the likes of George Zulu and Lameck Mangani.

    Both Lameck Mangani and George Zulu were strong UNIP supporters during the 1991 elections but were not known in Chipata and Eastern Province. George Zulu had just been recalled from the diplomatic service and Mangani was a Deputy Headteacher at Chasa Secondary School.

    Both George Zulu and Lameck Mangani are what they are today because of people like President Banda who supported them during UNIP days and after the 1991 elections that brought MMD into government.

    George Zulu has always taken advantage of his close links with Paramount Chief and tried to influence decisions in Chipata and Eastern Province. George Zulu always takes advantage of the weaknesses of Paramount Chief Mpezeni and always uses Mpezeni for his political agendas.

    Eastern Province has always had characters like George Zulu,Lameck Mangani and George Chabwera who are always prepared to use their tribe to dominate communities in Eastern Province. People like George Chabwera who is a Tumbuka but also hates other Eastern Province tribes. George Chabwera and George Zulu also hate the Indians in Chipata.

    Those of use who know Lameck Mangani were very shocked to learn that,he was prepared to damage his relationship with Rupiah Banda,just for short term gain from the PF. It is the same approach used by George Zulu and George Chabwera. They benefited from UNIP and then moved to MMD and are very prepared to join PF to gain a job.

    The people of Eastern Province should be aware of people like Mangani. These people have no principles and can also be tribalist if it suits them. I think it is time that such people are exposed for their selfish politics based on greed.

    Any apology by Mangani should be taken with huge pitch of salt-he just does not have any principles but can go were there are jobs and power.

    For President Banda,I am very sure that he now knows who his real frIends are-Lameck Mangani is definitely not one of them.

  11. I propose to differ and say Mpezeni is a form five school leaver from Chipata Day Secondary School. Kindly check the facts and ascertain whether the form five is really illiterate. If he is a form five school leaver and he is illiterate, then the education system then was at fault!

  12. I don’t know if the simple biblical concept of “you reap what you sow” does not resonate in the minds of shallow minded politicians like Lameck Mangani.

    If Mangani expected to be rewarded for betraying RB and boot-leaking Sata’s hate filled tribal stance that has unfortunately been ignored by many Zambians that think the man is a saint, he was asking for a horn of a dog.

    Sata is good at using people as evidenced by how Mike Mulongoti, Clement Andeleki, Patrick Mwanawasa and many others that expected their hands to be oiled after supporting Sata during the run-up to the 2011 elections.

    All have been dumped and thrown away like used toilet paper.

    Mangani is paying for his iniquities and the wages of that sin he committed is death.

    Mangani will die a Sad man if he does not come out in the open and apologize to RB and Zambians that saw the evil hate filled hand of tribalism being extended by Managni to slap RB right in the face just because Sata was dangling a bitter carrot in front of him.

    Fortunately Sata can not be trusted and all Zambians now including a clique of his brainless PF minions who also know that the man is a turn-coat who should not be believed. Even if Sata tells you that milk is white you need to verify that because like the devil, the man speaks his native language and something genetically in-born when he speaks a lie.

    Pay for your sin Lameck.

  25. Part of the problem of Ngonis in Eastern Province is that they have no real authority beyond the Paramount Chieftaincy which we all know was assumed by military power and has always been devoid of morals. Ngonis have never been a distinct group and the language is all but a scratchy dialect in their royal circles. Ngonis did the people of EP and Zambia a big disfavour by not allowing natural laws of assimilation to take root and retain the language beyond its current confinement as one of many in the area. The Ngoni offspring would have naturally been contenders to leadership in many of the chiefdoms in EP through the normal maternal ladder.

    The strategy in the 19th Century was to conquer and get power and adopt the local languages and retain their customs and practices and defy all other authrotity. This strategy earned Ngonis less access to essential education and still makes them today under authoritative and instead still prefer antagonism in their modern day approach to life rather than sound leadership.

  28. This also serves as a warning to all those MMD opposition MPs who today are deputy ministers that come 2016 they will all be dumped by PF in favour of their own party cadres and I can assure them that they have picked an easy route out of politics. As for their MMD and PF this marks the end to that journey. Kabimba and Mmembe has used them for their purpose and come 2016 they will be told that they are not members.

    In short they have been used as useful idiots and they must prepare to answer to all corrupt charges that the PF has suspended for their being useful idiots. Life has a way of teaching us lessons. As for Mangani I have no sympathy for such an idiot as him because even then I doubt if he has really learnt any lesson at all.

  29. In Eastern province, there’s a lot of intermarrying between Chewas and Ngonis. Most times it is difficult to identify a chewa village from a ngoni village. These villages are located side by side to each other. There’s a history behind this but that is another story. People there speak ngoni and chewa interchangeably. Although the former president RB is said to be chewa, the language he speaks all the time is ngoni. Mangani and George Zulu are the nuisance of eastern province. They allowed themselves to be used by Sata, a bemba (Bisa). Mangani has no one to blame but himself. He is a F.O.O.L. George Zulu is an opportunist who is dragging Mpezeni with him which is pretty sad. Both Mangani and George Zulu have a false sense of importance in eastern province. They are nothing. We the people of eastern province are watching them very closely. Mangani and George Zulu are the only two who think ngoni or chewa all the time. They are an embarrassment to all Nyanja speaking peoples. To most of us from the east there’s no difference between tumbuka, nsenga, senga, kunda, chikunda, chewa and ngoni. I implore chief Mpezeni to expose Zulu for what he is. Luckily for all of us Gawa undi is beyond politics and does not talk anyhow and does not recognize Mangani.
