Munkombwe: I Personally Get In Govt To Eat & Not To Serve the Poor

81 year old veteran politician Daniel Munkombwe has disclosed that he gets into government to eat and not to serve the interest of the poor masses.

Newly-appointed Southern Province minister Daniel Munkombwe says he will continue serving in government even at the age of 90 as long as God gives him life and wisdom to explain and interpret things.

And Munkombwe says he has continued to serve in all governments because he is rated as an old useful man.

Meanwhile, Munkombwe says everybody is now adopting his philosophy of politics of benefits.

In an interview, Munkombwe said if he could convince people at 90 years, he would continue to offer his services.

“Since we cannot say who is dying when, because it is only God who determines when to take, it is not an individual. Those individuals who wish us ill may go earlier than us. It is wrong to wish or expect an old man to die earlier because those who wish others to die early may die early instead,” said 81-year-old Munkombwe when asked how long he intends to serve in government.

Asked if politics of benefits were at play following his appointment in government, Munkombwe responded: : “There is nobody who is not using my philosophy of politics of benefits. There is nobody who goes into parliament naked, we go to parliament because of allowances. There is no more patriotism. Patriotism was only there when we were fighting colonialists, so everybody is adopting my philosophy of politics of benefits. I know people will say Munkombwe has gone into government because he wants to eat but who does not want to eat?”

On Novermber 13, 2005, Munkombwe who was then Southern Province MMD chairman told the late Levy Mwanawasa in Mamba that politics of patriotism were over because what was at play then were politics of benefits.

    I think satana is not a good president at all because this man so called munkhombwe was fired as minister under mwanawasa,he is too corrupt,he allowed the bus which was detained at the waigh bridge in L/stone,the bus belongs to GEMIS (GBM)had crates of beer.

      There seem to be a mix-up of facts here. The Minister who allowed an overweighed GEMMIN bus to pass, and was subsquently fired by Mwanawasa after the POST brought the story to the fore, was MULYATA and not Munkombwe.

      Please, let us verify our contributions… so many eyes are reading and we need not to misinform…

    President Sata must at all costs revoke the appointment and replace him with Given Lubinda so that he and Silvya can coordinate the World Tourism event taking place this year. Let Munkombwe go back home with his politics of benefits.

      Why should Sata revoke the appointment of my great grandfather Munkombwe? The old man is saying the truth which everyone knows including Sata himself.The truth hates!!!

    I agree with motherly heart, you know how the media twist their headline stories in order to attract customers, we all go for work to put food on our tables, am sure no one gets paid for not doing anything, give the guy a break,he only said the truth which has been twisted by the journalists because they also want to put food on their tables.

    Its not that am in suport of appointing the resicled labour, when are the youth going to have a chance of working in decision making positions?
