Sata demands polling date

Time Posted: September 5, 2008 8:10 pm

Opposition Patriotic Front (PF) President Michael Sata has demanded for immediate announcement of presidential elections.

The opposition leader has meanwhile accused the ruling MMD of creating an impression that the elections will not be held.

Mr Sata said this at a Press briefing at the party secretariat in Lusaka Friday.

He alleged that ruling MMD parliamentarians will discuss the possibility to amend some clauses in the national constitution to form a government of national unity when parliamentary sessions resume.

Mr. Sata dismissed assertions that he is sick and can not contest the forth coming presidential elections following a heart attack he suffered early in April, 2008.

He has declared himself fit and healthy for the elections.

And PF spokesperson Given Lubinda said the party is shocked at the conduct of senior party officials in the ruling MMD who he alleged commenced the campaigns before the late President Mwanawasa was put to rest.

He added that the MMD should have emulated his party that contributed to the amiable environment that prevailed in the country until the late Dr Mwanawasa was put to rest.

Mr. Lubinda challenged Dr. Rodger Chongwe to disclose the credibility of his qualifications.

He said Dr. Chongwe is not qualified to comment on people’s health condition as he is not a qualified medical doctor but instead has an honorary doctorate.

Mr. Lubinda accused Dr. Chongwe of job seeking from Mr. Banda who stands a chance of being elected as republican president in the fourth coming presidential by elections.

The PF spokesperson said this in reiterration to Dr Chongwe’s reported allegations Mr Sata is sick and cannot run for presidency

He also said that PF has qualified membership to deal with the affairs of the party and the country once voted into power.

And PF member Dr. Joseph Katema who read Mr. Sata’s medical report also declared the PF leader as fit and health to overcome the stress of campaigns and presidential office if voted into power.

Dr. Katema said Mr. Sata had suffered limited damage to the heart muscle following his quick evacuation to South Africa for medical treatment by the government.

The fourth coming by-election which is expected to take place in November has been necessited following the death of republican president Levy Mwanaweasa who died on the 19th of August in Paris France and was buried at Embassy park in Lusaka on 3rd September.

    Now that MMD has adopted their prefered presidential candidate in the person of RB, it is only necessary to sit, plan and announce the date for the elections. Hope it will be soon.

    Sick Lion Sata! Well payback time now. Ba Sata used to make a meal out of Levy’s health now it has come back to haunt him. Indeed you’re not 100% fit that is well known but of course no one is immortal. Ba Dr Rodger Chongwe must be ashamed really for being so immature. You made ifyabukaya* (drama) with Dr Kaunda that Bullets were flying in Kabwe in an attempted assassination which was purely naive and a “***** day” of its kind. Yes UNIP is back with a bang. RB former UNIP, SATA allrounder(UNIP,MMD,PF), HH unknown territory he has found himself.One Zambia, One Nation.

    Dear LT management,
    Those thumbs up and down can be used to make an Online Poll. Just make about 5 of them for: (in no particular order!) PF, UPND, MMD FDD and UNIP. The other parties are unserious small timers.
    On average your hottest articles receive about 500 comments, which is about 10% of the voting population (please correct me if i’m wrong). At the end of the day, we shall see which party is headed for State House.
    Take into account different colours for the 5 parties. You can call your article “LT’s Online Voting Sample”. Let it run for 2 days, you’ll be amazed at the result.
    Fellow bloggers, any other suggestions?

    How about having all presidential candidates undergo a health stress test evaluation on a treadmill? The EKG readout you get from this test would really help determine if one’s heart is in good condition. These results must be made public so that the electorate can cast the votes wisely should they elect on the basis of heart health. Since one’s appearance is not conclusive, we have to resort to scientific methods that are objective and deterministic. What do you say country men and women?

    Yes its true that any one can die any time whether he looks fit or not. You cant tell by looking. But I think the issue here is getting the best deal for Mother Zambia and I believe the combined efforts of PF & UPND can be the best deal for Zambia. PF & UPND together should field Sata for President and then Sata there after should appoint HH as his Vice so that he prepares him for 2011.

    This Sata man used to be in UNIP MMD and now PF! what new things has this man got to offer? Why do we encourage recycled politicians to feed us with the same old nonsense? The Zambian people have spoken with one voice during the funeral of late LPM. We all want to see Zambia carry on with the developmental projects. Sata is bad for business and above all he is bad for the peace (Zambia’s oil) of this nation.

    I beg to differ with my learned colleague Dr. katema. Any slight damage to the heart muscle, no matter how small or slight, is recurrent and can precipitate more problems later especially in older people over 65 years. I would not recommend any of my patients with such a condition to engage in rigourous mental and physical work. The presidential office is very demanding, you can even ask Dr. Lumbwe, late LPM’s physician. Mr. Sata can sit back and help a younger candidate like the Democrats have done in the US with Obama.

You will be caught this time if you are fond of insulting on this blog. For example mine is an American Flag, meaning I am in the U.S. So mwanya mwagwiliwa, balemikata.

    Selfishness, it’s in our parents generation! they would rather take all to the grave and let the kids fend for themselves. If these chaps where serious about feature generations, they would have invested heavily in institutions of higher learning and given way to fresh blood. Sata is PF and PF is Sata therefore he will take his party to his grave instead of allowing fresh blood to build on what he started.

    Sata is a Sick man and they are almost the same age as RB but between the 2 of them RB would better of to lead Zambia on the news today for you info the man said and i quote “tell all of those who are saying that i am sick that i am not very sick” and you are saying pabwato maybe you should have been there during the funeral processions to appreciate not having a known ticking time bomb as head of state most of you wont even vote at least i went for the funeral

If the late was a close relative, or i had the money or the time, i certainly we would have gone to zed. It could also be coincidental that one had intended to travel to zed the time of the funeral

    #79 Posting insults is not a criminal offense. Why are you Zambians so fond of intimidating and trying to shut up others. Besides, trying to track down people is very expensive and may fall foul of the data protection act. Now coming back to the topic at hand, I must say Sata looks sick. The stress of presidential office will push him over the edge. The constitution is so week that it allowed a sick Mwanawasa to stand and now it is going to allow a sick Sata to do the same.

    Sata’s profile, Google results: No academic qualifications are found nor indicated in any of his profiles but his work experience includes; police officer (as constable), railway man, and trade unionist before entering politics in 1963.
    In 1985 he became a Member of Parliament for Kabwata Constituency in Lusaka before becoming Governor under United National Independence Party (UNIP). Under the Movement for Multiple party Democracy (MMD) he served as Minister for Local government, Labor and briefly Health Minister before being appointed Minister without portfolio in 1995.

    It is up to PF and HH to sit down and make a winning plan. The only two problems are that Sata is very changeable the way he behaves and does his things while HH does not accept criticisms or other people’s ideas. Since both have already declared their candidacy then MMD will win again

    Zambians lets wake up and stop supporting politicians with failed policies,the likes of the satas will just take us backward in terms of our economy. Look at his policy on china, when the whole world is doing business the man says hes going to chase them, it doesn’t make sense to me. The Americans recently opened there biggest embassy in the world here in beijing and it was officially opened by bush.Even taiwan has started doing business with mainland china andthey are countless flights now btn china and taiwan,so zambians lets wake up and reject sata and his fake policies which are just meant to appease unsuspecting zambians.Abash PF, Abash Sata, Abash failed policies.

He may be old but he is currently the only hard working and practical leader we have. Shemuna shame yalupwa kale. Zambia needs him the way fish needs water to come and restore order in the country, show investors what they are supposed to be doing for both themselves and zambia. VIVA PF VIVA SATA VIVA ZAMBIA.

    The economy will just go under the moment Sata becomes president. Already from just the rumours that Mwanawasa had died, the kwacha depreciated. It gain abit after it was established he was still alive. But since his real death, it has not yet appreciated. Investors are worried to invested where they’ll one day be told to PACK and GO. SAVE ZAMBIA AND VOTE WISELY. Making too much RHETORICS is not what makes one a good leader. Sata has already mismanaged his own party. Remember Nakazwe and the 27 MPs. Do you then entrust him with the NATION? Please twakomba, VOTE WISELY.

Rupia has no record to speak off. Mwaanga keeps talking about his having been a diplomat. He was a Zambian level diplomat and did not make it internationally. Those who make it international are all over the world serving as Specia envoys or special representaives for the UN secretary General. Mwaanga tried to stand for OAU Secretary General in the Kaunda days. Countries were schocked when they found out from his cv that he has no more that standard six education. His candidancy collapsed.

    Che Guevara thank you for putting the provisions of Art 38 up for all to see. The elections are supposed to be held WITHIN 90 days. We only have 71 more, and counting. There is nothing wrong with demanding an election date now. If the ECZ is going to begin voter registration we need to start YESTERDAY. If there’ll be no registration this time around, which we should not allow cos you’re doomed if you’ve misplaced your card, people need to be able to plan ahead so that they’re in the vicinity of the polling stations at which they had registered.Rigging is easier when there’s a low voter turnout and you clever lot are about to be disenfranchised.

RB is an economist and now the world is facing a recession, the man could be be a blessing in disguise. Sata does not believe or follow any laws apart from the ones he makes as he goes along. Imagine this man as your president? he will close parliament and chase all the investors in the same way Idi Amin of uganda did.

Michael and I have let bygones be bygones and I supported him in the last elections. However since then he has had a very serious heart attack followed by some unusual political behaviour. We speak and he knows my position on his health. I am not the only one with these concerns.

    How can the old crocodiles take centre stage in MMD and UNIP overrun MMD. RB is UNIP not MMD. We need the true update version of Sir Levy‘s will, please Maul Bee (Madam Maureen), we know that you hid for it for safe storage. We also know that RB was to be history by 7th Anniversary of Sir Levy’s Presidency. Now if he was to be fired why he in charge of MMD? He was to be replaced at that press conference by a Woman (1st candidate on Sir Levy’s list) and the other man (2nd Candidate) was to be incorporated into cabinet because the third is a already a minister.
    Shame upon MMD to pick a UNIPist with very very humble education to lead them and possibly Zambia.

Whose record demonstrates his willingness and desire to bring Our university UNZA in order. He will follow through by making sure that UNZA is respected. A man who is armed with the moral authority to once again engage our allies in the world community and heal the wounds that were inflicted upon those relationships by the MMD government.

The sitiaution as it is favours RB to carry the day if all MMD members, those that got defeated and their supporters campaign for RB. Should the losing candidates and their supporters go for a protest vote, then Ba Sata may get it. BY and HH are just their so we can have more than 2 faces on the ballots that ECZ will print. So Ba Andrew i feel sorry for you and this your HH belief. But keep on hoping as there is nothing wrong in hoping for rain in june or july when in zambia as miracles do happen.

    The odds favour RB being elected due to 1. sympathy vote; 2. Govt resources as acting President ie he will travel to all parts of the country on Govt budget just as Lupando did as VP. However, in terms of experience as a politician, Sata will be far ahead of the pack as he will say what the masses wants to hear. HH says the right things but Zambia is not yet ready for his type. The real battle will be between RB and Sata, and then all depends what happens when RB opens his mouth to campaign – will determine if he wins or not

    This will make interesting observation, with government enjoying fullest public sympathy and availability of resources coupled with the opposition seemingly not too ready with very few points to ague on!

    One thing though is for sure, Zambians are less enthusiastic about going to the polls and favor the continuation of the current government. Since Michael Sata reconciled with the late President, it will be difficult for him to attack the MMD, especially attacking a candidate (RB) whose age and resume is almost the same as his. Noteworthy though is that over the years I have learned never to under-estimate the King Cobra’s abilities to sway public opinion.

Let me digress a bit – in the US the democrats across the nation chose Obama, it is only expected that the democratic convention would confirm his adoption as their candidate for President as they did. Now back to MMD, 8 provinces had adopted RB so it is only to be expected the NEC would pick the popular candidate. However, the POST wants to peddle undemocratic principles and they think they know best for all Zambians – nonsensical.

How the hell wouldnt you expect high demand with the mashrooming of mining industries which come with other numerous industries such as construction, housing tomention a few? Asking for a date is a sure sign of a skill to plan. Not forgetting the need to plan considering the resources you have at hand. If u chaps are wondering why Sata and PF needs to know the date-its not suprising. Thats one of the traits exemplifying a Zambians mind set-Taking things (and pipo) for granted. GO SATA BAUZE.

Whether old or young Zambia needs someone with the interest in Zambians and has shown it by standing up for them. Go Sata. Three years is enough for you to spring-clean Zambia.

    I find nothing wrong in Satas quest to become President of Zambia. The theory of Old and ugly looking or ill looking does not come to play. The late was sick when he was getting into the 2006 election hence his not campaigning for himself during that time.Age is not an issue as I wish to refere you to Abdulai Wade of Senegal who is of an advance age and contested election on more than three occasions. So ladies and Gentlemen let the Zambians decide.Even in homes,we may not like our fathers compaired to the neigbours father but those are what God gave to US. HH + PF factor brings an interesting dimension.Dont tell this to RB, he might w.. his p..

What is the lesson? that we should never judge a book by its cover. Now that RB is the official MMD candidate, i expect a lot of insults from the POST. I was one ardent fan of the POST but after the unwarranted attack of RB i vowed to switch to GRZ papers and the new baby on the block in the form of EXECUTIVE ISSUES. You only subscribe for K25000 per month. For now they seem to be a sober outfit. You can get Dickson Jere on 0977767887

    Sata is campaigning for a state funeral like Levy, that’s why he was following Levy’s corpse all over to check out the route his body will take also. Apparently he has told his lawyers he wants to do it Bemba style i.e. barried kwa Mwalule after laying in state for a week in all of Zambia’s 52 districts.

RB hs never been MMD and has no policy whatsover to govern this country with. Seemingly NEC members are afraid of their own shadow and cannot even choose a credible candidate. If LPM(MHSRIP) Had not chosen RB as his veep, where could RB have been today? Could he even have been considered for party presidency?

    The November Presidential by-election results will be photo-copy of 2006 polls. RB (MMD) will win, followed by PF and HH last.

    If any one want to change this result format, pump sense into HH and Sata to form some alliance with Sata being Presido and HH vice…and on condition that Sata be Presido upto 2011… then HH can take over.

She will end up finding one who will sort her out badly! So, I would advise her to sort out her hubby and not make a full of herself and not also put other womens husbands in her silly emails!

    Sata is right to call for an election date. I don’t have particular preference for any of the likely candidates or the parties that they lead for that matter. None of the parties have come forward to explain their policies to the electorate and all rely on personalities to campaign. However, I note that the once impartial Post newspaper seems to loathe the idea of Rupiah Banda or, God forbid, Michael Sata assuming presidency in November. The only conclusion that I can come up with is that they have a lot to lose under a new administration. They probably fear that government departments will no longer buy their paper and they will lose out on revenue (remember the Kafupi era?).

The truth is most people stick to what they first learnt or on the basis of the proximity of the thing being chosen. Our level of education has little to do with the bigotry we always exhibit. All that said I personally believe HH is good for us. He is sober minded…has a clear vision for the country. Sata forces things to happen…that is not very good..

Have you considered that some people visit the motherland quite often and take such a keen interest that they may be as informed as anyone else? Many global investors have not been to the countries tehy invest in but are able to gather enough information to take risky but profitable positions. The world is smaller than you think.

Every Zambian would be intereste (i think) to know how you intend to reduce unemployment, crime, disease, attract even more investment in other sectors of the economy & build investor confidence. And also address some form of reduction in the goverment over expenditure (eg, Ministers entitlement to more than 1 official vehicle, misuse of government motor vehicles/fuel, unnecessary travels in the form of serminars/workshops). These are some of the issues which need to be addressed by all presidential candidates. Please tell us ‘WHY WE SHOULD VOTE FOR YOU’.

    “I would have been dead if President Mwanawasa did not personally intervene to ensure my evacuation to South Africa for specialist treatment”, he said.

    From LT 12th May 2008

    “Comrade” RB has not relinguished his UNIP membership.It`s surprising that MMD never properly vetted him.RB is staunch UNIPIST masquerading as an MMD zealot.

    Hey you young Zambians like me, we need to start fusing ourselves in the top Zambia development issues. Technology is moving the world and if we dont appreciate it or without investing in it, will be writting on this blog while these old gurus reap off and go.
    I dont think either Ba Banda or Ba Sata knows even how to find this blog?
    I personally approched the PF board to do some ICT Biz and most of them did not even know what Dial-Up Internet connection is.

    Young Zambians with capabilities do something, we are tired of these gurus…

He’s above 70 and his breathing…..Let’s not trivialise matters by debating poeple’s health. let’s go to the polls after all Chongwe is not God to say we will have another bye election. In fact we shall bury him before we bury Sata or RB. Annouce election date ECZ. We need a president and a new cabinet.

    No 21 I agree with you….good idea.
    As much as we are desperate for a leader, let us not REPEAT not elect someone who might die at any time. Sata is not fit and he knows that but power & cash is too sweet hence pipo would rather lose their lives than prevent themselves from death. This is what Maureen did, she encouraged her husband to go for the second term when they both knew the exact situation of LPM’s health. Sata should just be honest and choose someone who is much younger healthier than him.Its a pit there are just a few selfish leaders like Nelson Mandala in this world. Sata can be an advised to the person that he will appoint to stand. By doing this, everyone will respect him

    If the opposition wins (big IF) the elections I see this happening:

    1) We will loose the remaining months in 2008 because they will be trying to form government;
    2) Half of 2009 will be spent on drafting the new strategic programmes looking at the past no one will want to continue with the previous Govnt programmes;
    3) Most of 2011 will be spent on campanying for the General elections.

    In short the opposition will not make much impact economically and they will risk losing the 2011 general elections.

    On the other hand if RB wins the government will implement the contoversial salaries and Institutions like UNZA will not get what they have been asking for. I am in a dilema!

    SATA has health problems and questionable character while HH has alot to answer about his frivolous involvement in the privatisation exercice.

    I’ve read some ignorant posts about the ugliness of Sata as you call it. When one becomes president one’s face even becomes handsome. There are many budgeted for allocations for cosmetics in state house. Sata will obviously lay the ground work for a successor if some of you think he’s about to kick the bucket. My only advice to him is to join with HH or he risks losing plot 1 to MMD. Who should be president of the PF-UPND alliance? Sata or HH? We’re waiting for the day the headline will come out on LT “”PF and UPND join forces ahead of presidential bye-election””

It’s up to them to choose which way to go.

    the rate of aging differs from people to people.I’m afraid my big man cobra is aging to fast. Here ho was calling for the date to be anounced it it should be 90 days. when it was anounced with a few days of 90+ . Sata cried foul. The elections are too soon. Lets choose between HH and RB. MY vote is not a secret R.B. I like the why he is hundling the Post.”membe has lost proffesionalism in jounalist. He is behaving like a kid”.
