Lubinda being framed to create vacancy for Namulambe- PF sources

Filed under: More News |

Sata looking away from Lubinda

Former Mpongwe MP Gabriel Namulambe has been lobbying for a job with the PF since June this year, PF sources have told the Watchdog.

Meanwhile, PF sources have revealed that the ruling party and particularly Secretary General Winter Kabimba and Sylivia Masebo have deliberately framed Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda in order to create a full ministerial vacant position for former Mpongwe MP Gabriel Namulambe.

Namulambe, who has been frequenting State House as revealed by the Watchdog  was initially offered a Deputy Ministerial position for Copperbelt Province, but he insisted that he wanted a full ministerial position, which he initially occupied under the Levy Mwanawasa and later Rupiah Banda administration and could not be demoted.

Sources revealed that Namulambe even asked that he replaces Christopher Yaluma as Transport, Works and Supply minister but president Michael Sata refused.

However, after negotiations and lobbying president Sata has now given a condition to all opposition MPs, including Namulambe that anyone who wants a job from government, especially full ministerial position, should first resign his party and join the ruling PF.

This is the same condition that Namulambe was given when he met president Sata on Monday at mid-night, see Watchdog revelation of Namulambe’s State House visit here.

Namulambe finally gave in to this condition in line with what other sources revealed to the Watchdog that a group of former ministers who worked with late president Levy Mwanawasa are determined to reclaim back power even through the PF in a project being supported  by former first lady Maureen Mwanawasa.

Meanwhile, reports from Mpongwe indicate that Namulambe’s attempt to woo all the MMD Councillors to PF has failed as they have refused to defect with Namulambe because they did not want to be used by someone’s selfish motives.

And Foreign Affairs minister, Given Lubinda is being framed by Winter Kabimba in order to create a vacant full ministerial position for Mpongwe MP as president Sata is reluctant to create another full ministry or drop someone else.

Sources say, Lubinda became an easiest target to frame because of the challenge he poses to Kabimba’s presidential ambitions in 2016 when Mr. Sata will be expected to retire.

According to sources, the PF were careful by opting to risk an urban seat where they feel they can easily reclaim in order to create a vacant for Namulambe and initially considered hounding out Lands minister Wilber Simuusa from Chingola.

But it was felt that Simuusa has been a loyal PF member with no previous links with any other party and the party leadership also felt they needed him in order to keep whoodwinking Zambians that they were not a tribal party.

Mr. Lubinda therefore became an ease prey because of his previous links as a member of UPND and later Sakwiba’s United Liberal Party (ULP) and PF calculations are that they can easily reclaim back the Kabwata seat should he be expelled or forced to resign on his own.

  15. Yesterday I past through one of the big referral Hospitals to visit a sick relative ,but to my surprise I was greeted with a prescription slip to go and buy some medicines for my sister which was not available at the hospital,except pain killers such as Panadols and Aspirins-Shame!! .Now why do I pay PAYE to govt for? if there no necessary medicines in hospitals.Foolishly some idiots somewhere have caused a Bye election in Mpongwe constituency and unfortunately still want to generate one in Kabwata .Stop it!We need proper service delivery in Health.education,Agriculture,local govt,etc and NOT elections,elections everytime.You want to finish your first term just electioneering through and through awee bane .Iwe Kamimbya stop that nonsense and get down to work.This govt is unable to release monies for personal emoluments( pension dues,terminal leave days,leave travel benefits for thousands of retirees. Shame! but still wants to go ahead with unnecessary bye elections here and there.Is this what we voted for?NO

  22. I am really disappointed with this Wynter. Honestly, the whole lot of him cant he put his energy into something else that’s more productive. We need leaders who will think for the masses and adopt policies that favors the majority and not the minority. Moreover this is an internal query why did he have to broadcast it to the media. This is simply a low minded person. We dont need this time waster. We are facing serious problems as a nation we need serious leaders who will guide us through these problems.

  24. Politics of the stomach are again taking center stage in PF. Kabimba, as expected, has mobilized vulnerable youths and women to support his evil intentions on Given. From today onwards zambians will be irritated with parroted slogans supporting Kabimba.
    They coach them what to say, they drink the whole nite and then start shouting VIVA KABIMBA, Yes we want ROYAL members in PF VIVA, ABASH Given he’s not ROYAL to the party…. it was on radio this morning.

  28. Given is actually one of the greatest asset PF has, kabimba is only good for the dust bin, he is trash and if the man on top does not act fast he too will be pushed by kabimba but not while Given is around. No one messes with my man.

  34. Sorry, you all got it wrong. Lubinda does not qualify for Presidency due to his foreign parentage issues. Besides, Given my friend has no intention to run for office. So I wonder what is bothering Winter.
