Kambwili has done the right thing by apologising to Tongas – NkomboBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 11 Aug 2017
Mazabuka UPND member of parliament Garry Nkombo has commended Chishimba Kambwili for apologising to the people of Southern Province for the way he mocked them in 2015.
On Wednesday, Kambwili, who is Roan Patriotic Front member of parliament, met some Southern Province chiefs and asked for their forgiveness over his infamous remarks that even if Jesus were to stand against Hakainde Hichilema, southerners would not vote for him.
“I sincerely thank you for accepting my apology, I came here to basically unreservedly apologize to the Tonga speaking people before the people of southern province and the Zambians for the unfortunate statement that I made on ZNBC to the effect that ‘even if Jesus Christ was to come, the people of Southern province would vote for a fellow Tonga’. This I have reflected and I want to say that I have withdrawn the statement and unreservedly apologize to the people of Southern province. My first apology was through my radio interview but I felt it was important that I come to the custodians of Southern province who the Chiefs so that I can physically apologize to them,” said Kambwili.
In an interview yesterday, Nkombo said Kambwili deserved a second chance.
“I wish to congratulate the royal highness for receiving Kambwili and hearing him out, I think we have to follow suit. It is not an issue of apologizing to the Tonga people door by door, I think he has done his thing very well by identifying the royal highnesses, though them by asking them to get their subjects to consider forgiving him. I think it is within the spirit and he needs to be given a second chance. I think everyone deserves a second chance, that’s my true feeling especially to him who has made an atonement,” said Nkombo.
