KBF recalls how Kabila was assassinated by his ownBy Mirriam Chabala on 18 Jan 2017
OUR true enemies are not external but the ones we wine and dine with, says former PF vice chairperson for elections Kelvin Bwalya Fube.
In a Facebook posting yesterday, January 17, 2017, KBF shared the lessons from the assassination of former DRC President Laurent De’sire Kabila.
“Today I celebrate the life of a gallant Son of Africa Laurent De’sire’ Kabila one of the courageous men in Africa it’s now exactly 16 years since he was shot dead by his 19 year old body guard Rashid. Kabila and his child soldiers walked 2,000 Kilometres to Kinshansa to go oust longtime dictator Mobutu Sese Seko who had turned Congo’s economy into his personal bank account. The west didn’t not see the arrival of this Marxist leader in a favorable light,” KBF wrote.
“About 3 months before President Kabila’s death, [he] had his long time friend and ally Masasu discreetly assassinated in Pwetu. Kabila feared Masasu’s popularity might overshadow his, Masasu was the one who had recruited most of Kabila’s child soldiers and later body guards when Masusa was killed the body guards who Kabila had treated badly with meager salaries received the sad news with a lot of frustrations. Not long Kabila was shot dead with 6 bullets in his chest.”
KBF noted that president Kabila’s assassination taught him never to despise people who were loyal to him.
“Lessons I learnt from Kabila’s assassination are that; never despise people who are loyal to you or who help you get on top, our true enemies are not external but the ones we dine and wine with and never ever forget or change when you get on top,” wrote KBF.
KBF vigorously campaigned for President Lungu both in 2015 and 2016 but although there was talk of him becoming either PF secretary general or justice minister, he was never appointed to any position.
In the past few months, KBF has been very critical of the PF and he said there was need to have elections in the party from the top to the bottom.
The constant attacks on the party forced PF campaign manager and lands minister Jean Kapata to fire KBF as her vice.
