PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has been found wanting in a case of gross misconduct and has since been reprimanded by the party.
Dr Kambwili, who is former minister of Information and Broadcasting Services has been found wanting over the use of derogatory and demeaning language towards another party official.
Dr Kambwili accused the Mayor of Luanshya Nathan Chanda, who is also Copperbelt PF youth chairperson of being a wizard and also accused him of submitting a dossier to the President Edgar Lungu which led to his dismissal from Cabinet.
Speaking during a briefing in Lusaka yesterday, PF Secretary General Davis Mwila said the decision to reprimand Dr Kambwili came following the recommendations made by the party’s central committee, which held disciplinary hearings against him from 13 to 24 January, this year.
“The committee therefore recommends that the respondent, Dr Kambwili be sanctioned with a written reprimand for acting disrespectfully towards another party official by using derogatory and demeaning language.
“What Dr Kambwili said in the Daily Mail that he was cleared by the central committee is not correct, he is not innocent,” he said.
He said the committee had also advised that Mr Chanda be cautioned to desist from unnecessary use of President Lungu’s name.
Mr Mwila said the central committee had since recommended for a reconciliation team, which would be headed by the Vice-President Inonge Wina that would act as a mediator between Dr Kambwili and Mr Chanda.
Mr Mwila said the party would by July 2018 commence its party elections at all levels leading to the general conference set for April 2020.
He said the party had set 2020 for the general election so as to allow for the full term of the President which started in December 2014 and was ending in 2019.
Meanwhile, PF deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri hailed the suspension of the Mazhandu Family Bus operating licence by the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA).
Ms Phiri said the agency would however  do the country a lot of good to dig deeper in what really transpired.
She said her party valued human life than money and hence the need for detailed investigations into the accident.
Dr Kambwili could not be reached for a comment.
