Mpombo Backs Fr. Bwalya ‘Underestimate Fr. Bwalya at Your Own Peril, He Should Not Be Written Off’



GEORGE Mpombo says he is ready to play his role effectively as a politician without fear or favour and will now be aggressive and active on the political scene.
And Mpombo says Frank Bwalya is an aggressive political player who should not be written off.
Speaking on arrival at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport from Nigeria, where he was serving as Zambia’s deputy high commissioner, Mpombo said he wanted to do something higher than Kafulafuta.
“I am ready to play my role effectively as a politician without any fear or favour,” said Mpombo.
Asked if he would consider contesting the vacant Kafulafuta parliamentary seat, Mpombo responded: “I want to do something higher than Kafulafuta, so it is out of my agenda at the moment. I have no intention of going into Kafulafuta business.”
Mpombo said he quit politics at constituency level in order to allow young people to get on board.
And when asked about his views on Bwalya’s decision to join politics, Mpombo said Bwalya was an aggressive political player.
“Frank Bwalya is an aggressive political player, and depending on how he plays his game, he cannot be written off,” he said.
Mpombo said one’s impact on the political scene depends on how one gets organised with the grassroots.
“But if it is going to be what I would describe as a microphone political revolution, without grassroot connection, then those efforts could be futile. The grassroots are the kingmakers. If anyone makes a party, he must be in close contact with the grassroots by being deeprooted,” said Mpombo.
On the government’s decision to recall him from the foreign service, Mpombo, said the recall was a mixed bag as no details which led to the decision were availed to him.
He however, said he was grateful that he was given an opportunity to serve outside the country.
And Mpombo said his recall would accord him an opportunity to make himself available before the courts of law.
Mpombo said he was ready to face the courts and that he would be meeting his lawyers.
And Mpombo said he would spend the next three weeks in Lusaka, concluding his book titled The Audacity of a journey.

    Mpombo is forming a party for sure. I suggest he should hsve considered joing Farther Bwalya and fight PF in 2016 rather than form another party

    @G-String. That’s just where the problem lies. He is aiming ‘higher’ than parliament. He, Bwalya, Nevers, HH, Magande want the presidency. None can work with the other!

    The raiment in which Mpombo has embodied himself on bequeathing his outpost is cognisant with the imbibers of palm wine of the Occidental populace.

    When Mpombo resigned from his higher position in government, he completely transformed the political scene. He survived by an occasional drink he took at Sun Hotel Swimming pool (if my memory serves me well). Following this event, monkeys gave a drink to Mr. Rupiah at State House by urinating on him. I never missed a single paper. The reading was so much entertaining with all that vocabulary coming from him, the Kunda’s (MHSRP) on one side and the Tentamashimbas on the other!

    Maybe writing could be his thing because for a misery 10 grand these guys are going to pass him though a lot mad while they get away with billions of our currencies (rebased). Arguably most of the stooges who ran the previous regime are all coming back with their backs heavy with garbage back into government. Who knows, maybe they didn’t steal from us. Up to now, I have not been told how much they stole (during Rupiah’s reign).

      You shall come to know the truth and it shall set you free! And you are right he did drop in for a drink or two. The only question I cant remember is whether it was for a blue or red label

    HH,Nevers,Magande,Bwalya,Chipimo all fighting for plot leaves us with one choice..MCS. Bamukulowe nga bafula tabucha bwangu. Who among the people listed is willing to give up? HH feels he has waited too long, Nevers was VP and know he was almost there, Bwalya thinks PF was voted into power because of him,Chipimo thinks we are looking for for new blood and Magande thinks he understands econonics better than anyone else. Game on.

    The Die may be cast but it is the Lord who ultimately determines the lot. May as many as possible flood the Presidency bid, but only one at a time will succeed.

    It is very interesting to notice that respeted politicians as Mpombo backs the idea of giving a chance to young generations. Instead of seeing the old UNIP cadres clinging to power to realize their political dreams of corruption and nepotism. I must mention that free minded people like Mpombo can never be afforded that chance to serve in diplomtic missions. The diplomtic mission has lost its professionality.That word of carrier diplomatic has disappeare in Zambia. The diplomatic missions i n europe and western countries are occupied by family members to SATA and his elite. They spend their times cooking Nshima and plating their hairs. The word DIPLOMATIC emissary has lost its value in Zambia. It is time for changes. All old guards must follow the example of Mpombo.

    If all zambians join PF then we are not a country we are doomed we are going to be a tree that has no roots there for for zambia to function we need opposition party to do checks and balances.We need people like father Bwalya not sissys zambians be strong Kaunda took power from collonial power becouse he was brave enough with the support of few strong fearless zambians.If you remember Dr fredrick chiluba ,late mwanawasa and others they used to say Sata will never rule zambia there he is.Becouse of his braveness and perserviarance is the head of state.I wish all these former presidents where alive to see Sata in state House.Iam appealing to Mr Sata to support people who are opposing him its like they are opening his eyes to see the future.

    SATA Took a long journey to presidency, we all know it from the number of attempts he made and the hurdles he faced.
    MANDELA took a really LONG journey (walk) to freedom. Now, WHAT REMARKABLE JOURNEY for heaven’s sake has Mpombo taken other than the usual one of infancy to old age?
