Former Lusaka mayor Fisho Mwale has re-opened the chapter in Professor Clive Chirwa’s sojourn to Zambia. Prof. Chirwa arrived in Zambia with a bang but his political touch could have landed him in hot soup after he had an affair with the MMD, UPND and later PF. His ending was a sad note that ended with criminal prosecution in the Zambian magistrate court. His cousin Fisho has stumbled on some of his aeronautic works and shares the story. SEE BELOW FISHO MWALE’S NARRATION SOMETIMES AM SO PROUD TO BE ZAMBIAN…..last month I flew on Ethiopian Airlines Dreamliner and I was amazed at the brightening and darkening windows which like a little boy with a new toy I kept playing with. Little did I know that the invention was by a Cousin of mine , ( I underline cousin to show am related to him) non other than ProfessorClive Chirwa, a scientist Zambia vilified as a criminal and academic impostor. Clive was professionally sodomised by his Zambia Railways board and government. For 3 years he was a “prisoner†in his own country, passport taken away . His NASA credentials or claim to be one of the world’s renown aircraft crash expert did not help. Zambia is not kind to its own heroes. So I called him up when I saw his invention and asked “Cousin was it really you who patented the invention?“ and to my joy and pride he said it was him in partnership with Splice and funded by Boeing. I wanted to ask for a loan from royalties but My chest grew with pride as a Zambian , I could not ask if he will ever come back to help his country. I remember in pain that even people who went to school called him a fraud and yet outside Zambia he is a respected intellectual.

MMD die-hard youths national coordinator Gerald Chiluba has warned the Nevers Mumba’s group to stop bringing the leadership of the party into disrepute. Responding to Elizabeth Chitika who has continued to issue statements against the MMD leadership under president Felix Mutati, Chiluba said the former ruling party youths will not condone the continued attacks on their leadership and that they will mercilessly deal with anyone who will attempt to attack the party secretariat. “We want to urge one Dr Nevers Mumba with his stooge Elizabeth Chitika to desist from bringing the leadership of the party into disrepute. “MMD is a law driven political party which consistently adheres to the provisions of its party constitution, therefore any unlawful attacks and malicious statements against our leadership will not be condoned by the youths of the great party. “We want to take this opportunity to dare the Nevers Mumba group to come to the secretariat has insinuated by Elizabeth Chitika the self annointed Secretary, they shall find us and we shall mercilessly deal with them for offending the dignity and honour of our party leadership because they have now crossed the red line,” he said. Chiluba further said his party’s intra party democracy will not be derailed by selfish individuals who wants to use it for personal gains. He added that the party will continue to reorganise and ensure that it adds value to the governance of the country. “We want to assure Dr Mumba and his spurious agents of destabilization that are hellbent on derailing the MMD intra-party democracy because of their personal gains that, their mischivious behaviour will not be entertained as their time has come to an end. We the youths of party are ready to wrestle and defend the party leadership against unwarrranted attacks from political adversaries. “The party will not be distracted from its mandate of continuing to rejuvenate and reposition itself to contribute effectively to the governance and provide credible checks and balances as the party is now more alive and vibrant like never before,” he said. Former MMD President Nevers Mumba and a handful of his confidants have continued to cling on to the faint hope that the former ruling party will be handed back to him despite the Registrar of Societies having changed names of office bearers for the party. Dr Mumba disputed the convention which was held from 20th to 22nd May 2016 with a weak argument that his tenure of office would end 2017. He has challenged the convention in the courts of law but one would wonder what argument he would use as his excuse that his tenure was ending in 2017 can no longer suffice as we are now in 2018 and no convention was held in their group for them to at least claim that he has retained the presidency of the party.
