Kambwili and Musenge trek to Monze to apologise to the the Tonga speaking people
(Lusaka Times 08/09/17)

Roan PF Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili and expelled PF former Chimwemwe MP Mwenya Musenge arrived in Monze today to hold talks with some Tonga Chiefs.

They are in Monze to formally apologise to the Tonga speaking people over Mr Kambwili’s anti-Tonga remarks last year.

Then as Chief Government Spokesman, Mr Kambwili said Tongas are so tribal such that they would rather vote for Hakainde Hichilema and not for Jesus Christ if Jesus contested elections.

His statement enraged many Zambians who condemned Mr Kambwili describing the remarks as tribal.

Mr Kambwili has since issued an apology following his expulsion from the PF and promised to travel to Southern Province to formally apologise.

Today, Mr. Kambwili in the company of Mr Musenge and former Kabushi PF Member of Parliament Lombani Msichili and few sympathisers were mobbed by a jubilant mob at in Monze town centre with some asking to shake Mr Kambwili’s hand and take photos with him.

Mr. Kambwili and his delegation was met in town by Bweengwa UPND Member of Parliament Kasauta Michelo who escorted the delegation to Chief Moonze’s palace.

At the palace, the delegation was received by Chief Moonze’s indunas who ushered them to meet the host Chief Monze and chiefs Hamusonde, Chikanta and Chona.

By time of publishing, Mr Kambwili’s delegation and the chiefs were holding a closed-door meeting.
