Rainbow Party president Wynter Kabimba has backpedalled on his declaration that President Edgar Lungu was eligible to contest the 2021 elections. The former Minister of Justice said that he had since re-read the constitution and realized that President Lungu does not qualify to contest the 2021 elections. Kabimba initially agreed that President Lungu was eligible to contest the 2012 elections but has had a change of heart under very surprising circumstances. On January 10, 2017 Kabimba said “You…what does the Constitution say about this matter (President Lungu’s eligibility to re-contest the presidency in 2021) …? It’s very clear… he is eligible…I have said about this matter on several times,†he said. But Kabimba has disowned his earlier position by writing to Patriotic Front secretary general Davies Mwila saying that President Lungu does not qualify to stand in 2021. He argues that the victory on August 11 2016 earned President Lungu a second and final term as at the time of winning the elections of January 2015 provisions of article 106 (5) sub section (a) and (b) did not exist. The debate about the eligibility of President Lungu being eligible for 2021 was opened by the Head of State when he said that he was eligible but asked anybody with doubt to seek the interpretation from the Constitutional Court. Four opposition political parties led by Dan Pule’s Christian Democratic Party have since filed a case with the Constitutional Court over the interpretation of the matter. They are asking the court to back the declaration that President Lungu is eligible. The post Kabimba Backs Out Of Third Term Support For Pres. Lungu appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Popular local musician Joe ‘the ambassador’ Chibangu has died. Chibangu died in his sleep and was taken to Coptic Hospital in Northmead where doctors confirmed his passing. The musician who doubled as a producer had a hand in many hits in contemporary Zambian music standing tall among the likes of Danny, JK, Nasty D, Mainza and Exile and others. He had taken a backseat in the recent past but always lent his hand to upcoming musicians. Some of the songs he did include Chikashana, Sera, Bamudala, I will be Waiting and Nakupenda among others. The Ndola born artiste started doing music in 1995 after he was inspired by his dad who was a music producer. His first singing gig was in 1995 where he was a singer at the Arabian nights in Kitwe. He released his first album The Ambassador which helped bring him in to the limelight. His breakout song was Nakupenda which received massive airplay.
