Kambwili’s Tantrums Confirm PF’s Low Calibre Leaders – Howard Kunda
Opposition MMD youth chairperson Howard Kunda has added his voice to the unruly behaviour displayed by sports minister Chishimba Kambwili at an international match involving Zambia’s Nkana and Etoile du Sahel on Saturday.
Kunda says Kambwili was previously removed from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and later Labour for reasons unknown but his behaviour at the ministry of sports cause for concern.
Kambwili allegedly called the referee stupid after the final whistle after forcing his way to the field of play. Nkana won 4-3 in a Confederation Cup Group B fixture but Kambwili was not happy with two dubious penalties awarded to the visitors.
“Like many other Patriotic Front Ministers, Hon. Kambwili has demonstrated the low calibre of leadership in the PF, Kunda stated.
The Full HOWARD KUNDA statement is below
As MMD youths, we wish to condemn the uncivilized behaviour of Sports Minister Honourable Chishimba Kambwili at the Football match between Nkana Football Club and Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup held on 26th July 2014, as reported by The Post Newspaper and other Media houses.
By calling the International Referee Tessema Weseya “very stupid”, Hon. Kambwili has demonstrated thuggish behaviour that confirms President Michael Sata’s poor assessment of most Patriotic Front Ministers.
Hon. Kambwili should learn the virtue of self-control and realize that being a Minister is a very big responsibility that calls for level-headedness.
If he can behave in such a childish manner at a mere football match, what more when he is required to make big decisions that affect millions of Zambians?
Considering that Hon. Kambwili’s name has been touted as a possible successor to President Sata, we shudder to think about what the state of Zambia would be after just one year of such tantrums in Plot One.
Never in the 50 year history of Zambian football has such an unprecedented event ever occurred. Not even under the British colonialists.
Hon. Kambwili should realise that his unbecoming behaviour does not show him as a good role model for the youth of this country whom he represents by virtue of his ministerial portfolio.
He was previously removed from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and later Labour. Like many other Patriotic Front Ministers, Hon. Kambwili has demonstrated the low calibre of leadership in the PF.
It therefore comes as no surprise when the PF and other opposition political parties attempt to poach some of our high quality leaders. The MMD has the best leaders who would not behave like this. We are a very disciplined party that can never condone such uncouth public displays.
If the PF government knows what is good for them, they should issue a public apology to CAF as soon as possible to save the nation any further embarrassment.
