HH didn’t buy the Chitimukulu a vehicle, says Bemba (RE) Insider

An insider of the Bemba Royal Establishment (BRE) has dispelled rumours going round that United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Haikainde Hichilema bought a vehicle for Chitimukulu Mwine Lubemba Kanyanta-Manga II.

In interview with the Zambian Eye this afternoon, the source who declined to be named disclosed that the Chitimukulu was recently in Lusaka at a named hotel at the expense of his subjects.

Let me state categorically that the vehicle being driven by the Mwine Lubemba Chitimukulu was a donation from a member of the Bemba Royal Establishment in Lusaka. Suffice to say it’s even against the values of the Bemba culture to go public whenever you present a gift to traditional leaders hence this Bemba donor opted to remain anonymous’ said the source.

The source also disclosed that it was Bashilubemba who directed the then Senior Chief Mwamba to handover his official vehicle to the Government after he was degazetted early this year and not the other way round.
