Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has warned embattled former Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili to stop misconducting himself in speech and manner by making it a habit of issuing disparaging remarks against President Edgar C. Lungu. Kampyongo, who is also PF National Youth Chairman, wondered what sort of nonsense Kambwili represented by practicing politics of character assassination and urged him to engange in issue based politics. “Iam warning Kambwili to desist from talking nonsense about people like he did against the Minister of Information. Let him not threaten people especially members of the PF. No one in PF owes Kambwili anything. Not the new members nor the old members. And let him not masquerade as having been an old serving member of PF because he is not. ” Hon. Kampyongo said. And Kampyongo stated that if Kambwili was looking for loyalty from anyone, it should be from members of the party he wanted to form with Mwenya Musenge. Meanwhile Hon. Kampyongo has expressed disgust at Kambwili’s statement discrediting the Presidential Marketeers Empowerment Initiative fund stating that no sane person would see anything wrong in someone helping to alleviate the suffering of others as Presidebt Lungu was doing for the Marketeers.

The coming by-elections will be a litmus test to the newly acting Director of Elections, Chomba Chellah, and his Head of Public Relations Margaret Chimense, at the Electoral Commission of Zambia. The manner in which they would ensure or ensured the electoral Code of Conduct enforced to the latter, the manner in which they promote transparency and accountability in the management of the process and the efficiency in the administration of the remaining part of the electoral process would define who they are and would be in the near future. Are they going to accept responsibility and willing to be accountable to their unpopular decisions and mistakes? Indeed, their conduct will define the electoral destiny of country and outlook of our electoral process come, 2021. As stated in Article 45 of the Constitution, Zambia’s electoral system and process must and should be transparent, accountable, efficient, credible and pursue a timely resolution of electoral disputes. Zambians, not only in areas where these by-elections are taking place but the whole country, are expecting not less than an improved management, administration and delivery of credible electoral process in the country. However, the fact that the media continue to show biased or no coverage of all political parties and candidates despite the guidance from the Constitution under Article 50 and the commission is quiet is already a source of concern that the Commission is scared of censuring the culprits. The fact the the Vice-President would pretend to undertake a three days- working visit to Itezhi-tezhi district where there is by-election using government facilities and resources, a pure act of abuse of public resources and yet, she went there to campaign for the ruling party district Council Chairperson candidate and the Commission is quiet, is extremely worrying to us electoral stakeholders. Therefore, Chomba Chellah led ECZ Secretariat must not be shy but be proactive and censure all acts inimical to the credibility of the electoral process and also acts that undermine the electoral code of conduct. I wish all the districts and wards holding by-elections God’s protection and wisdom. The post Chipenzi Talks By-Election & ECZ New Appointments appeared first on Zambia Reports.
