Why Should Bemba’s Be Victimized For Voting For Their Own? Tonga’s Have Been Doing It


By Chibesa Kalandwe II BA(UNZA), Msc(Arizona)

Bemba’s and easterners are being victimized. By bemba’s, I refer to all the off shots of the Luba-Lunda dispersal in the Northern and Copperbelt provinces.

Why should we be condemned for telling our people to vote for one of their own tribesman? Tonga’s have been openly and brazenly voting for their own tribesmen with no shame for the last 22 years since the formation of the UPND. You have never condemned this practice.

But today when Bizwell Mutale and Prof. Luo state the facts, Tonga’s want to play victims. This is rubbish.

Tonga’s want Bemba’s to vote for HH on principle in the Northern Province but will reject Edgar Lungu and PF on tribal lines in Southern Province. On the Copperbelt, the UPND has a seat in Lufwanyama, but a Lamba can not have the slightest chance of winning on PF in Southern Province. This is nonsense.

In Luwingu, bemba’s voted for a UPND councilor, a bemba or easterner can never be voted for however in Southern province.

So why should it be a crime to tell our people to vote for a fellow bemba?
