PF can win general elections today even without president Sata standing as a PF presidential candidate-Lubinda

Kabwata Member of Parliament GIVEN LUBINDA

Kabwata Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Given Lubinda has charged that his party is better placed to scoop a general election if held today than the opposition even without president Sata standing as a PF presidential candidate.

Mr. Lubinda said the opposition in its current state is no much to the ruling patriotic front even without President Sata because it is in a good state as a party than the opposition hence making it difficult for them to wrestle power from the current leadership.

He said the ruling party is an institution with lots of members and that it would be folly for someone to think that the party can only win an election with president Sata as its candidate.

And Mr. Lubinda has noted that though the PF has faced a number of pitfalls, the ruling party has delivered on a number of things that it campaigned on which every Zambian is able to see therefore would not change governments when they don’t have a better alternative to the current leadership.

He noted that since independence, no party has ever under taken such massive infrastructure development as the PF is currently doing.

He said the PF has been able to invest in infrastructure development across the country as well as create employment which he said can be seen as there has been an increase in the number of people who are employed as compared to the time the PF took over from the MMD in 2011.

“You cannot say that you can’t see that PF is delivering on its promises. The PF has been creating employment it may not be employment at the rate that some people would want to, it may not have employed everyone but it has been employing people since it got to office because the number employed people has been increasing.

The amount of infrastructure investment in Zambia to day is unprecedented, which government ever since independence in such a short time has invested in much infrastructure development than the PF?

The opposition’s role is to project what the government is not doing as much as they are expected to do and I can’t stop them from doing that,” Mr. Lubinda.

Mr. Lubinda also noted that the pitfalls that PF are facing are to be expected as there is no government that rules without challenges but that the important thing is knowing how to overcome them which he said the PF is handling them well.

The way to beat your enemy is to acknowledge his strengths and then you can plan well. i tell you there has never been this level of infrastructure projects in zambia from the time of independence. thats the fact. accept that fact or deny it…..its still a fact.

      Good thing to continue the good thing MMD only resumed in 2010 as a campaign strategy but people did not take it hook and sinker. MMD only worked in 1992/94 and then stopped to concentrate on enriching themselves until Mwanawasa came. Mr Banda only started a massive infrastructure projects when he realised he could be a one-term president which he did.

      For PF the problem is political strategy of killing the opposition using the colonial Public Order Act and refusing to give Zambians the constitution. Who told you that only the PF in opposition was civilised enough to be allowed to organise itself and talk to the Zambians countrywide?

      Lubinda do’nt just yap, let some radio stations conduct an opinion poll in a free and fair way, then you can start mouthing off if the polls favour PF. More over stop the PF intimidating the opposition when they try to mobilise and energise their members.

      As it things stand at the moment, you are behaving like the UNIP vuvuzelas in 1991 who were using the same mantra about infrastructure, because the cost of living issue was beyond their understanding and control.

      Lubinda dream on as the Kabwata seat has already been earmarked for Mulenga Sata to take. You will very soon swallow your vomit. Watch the space!

      I was in Zambia in May, the development activities are there for everyone to see. One can also see people working on these projects. Yes, there are other issues that need addressing, and the Presidential presentation has a lot to be desired. The free-fall of the Kwacha needs arresting and correcting too.

      Nevertheless, it is not all doom and gloom.

Employment of party careers in civil and diplomatic service is not job creation bo Libinda. Kabwata constituency is being prepared for Mulenga Sata. You are history bwana.

    No? Why?
    Because without Sata, PF will be clobbered back to no-existence.
    Sata is PF and PF is Sata. All the rest of PF are just there to make numbers.

    Mr. Lubinda sir,if infrastructural development alone was the only issue during elections then PF may have such a chance.However,and unfortunately there are other issues such as skyrocketing cost of living, lack of freedom of speech and association,rampant corruption,inability to enact a people driven constitution.These are paramount come elections.
    The infrastructure development or the country is your obligation as a govt. in power.It is not money from your pockets.It is taxpayers money and nkongole from Europe and China .
    Oh! Sir these are signs of your desperation to be accepted back to PF.Wish you luck

      Well said. A party is not elected based on one issue. Unfortunately, in this case that issue is based on heavy borrowing. If the people were to realize that there is a linkage between the debt due to the infrastructure building and high cost of living, the people would not applaud the PF govt. Finally, if bo Lubinda believes that PF is that strong, why is it that you won’t allow opposition parties to hold meetings and go around the country to meet their supporters?

Am sure most of you people expected him to resign but the man is loyal to his party and I can assure you he will be rewarded because us who elected him are watching. Given please don’t mind these low thinking people who only think about hate. Viva Lubinda…’you can never reach your destination when you throw a stone on each dog that barks’….

    Tupa,c is recommending UPND as a serious contender. However, Tupac must know that MMD and FDD and even NAREP can do what MMD did in 1991. So, continue concentrating on UPND and you will not know what may hit PF from the back of the head.

    Yes, PF is a strong party but with its strategy of “chasing” the opposition from wherever they go to meet their members while the ruling PF meets anywhere, anytime, in spite of the Public Order Act is slowly chipping away at the solid support.

He is not even a presidential material. Look at Malawi where the President was so certain of winning but what are the results. People who were persecuted are in state house and then? Nobody can vote for PF in Zambia today. Agriculture is now history in Zambia, freedom of speech we fought for in 1991 is taken away, people are killed like dogs suffering from rabies. There are no medicine in health institutions, maize marketing is not there and above all ,our farmers are suffering and you continue cheating yourself that things are ok.Please sir, you party has been the waste than UNIP.

The problem with Zambian politics is that, they are politics of the belly and not politics of cardinal issues that affect every native Zambian. Not until there is a change in the way the majority of Zambians think and understand the major reason why governments are elected, they shall continue to suffer the way they shall now suffer following their ushering the PF into power.

    Leave Given alone, he has stated a lot of facts on infrastructure development, only those in the diaspora who dont visit Zambia can deny that. Infrastructure development under PF is massive and a lot of that development was initiated by it, just refer to their budgets from the time they took over. They have been very brave to embarked on projects which have been avoided all along by previous government, for instance the Kit-Chng dual road, Bottom Road, Monze-Nico Road, building new universities, improving prisons, upgrading international airports, repairing township roads etc. These, the opposition will always try to condemn but will yield a lot of benefits in the near future. Give credit where its due mwebantu even KK during his recent interview on the SAfrican business channel agreed

    A dog that is about to die does not hear the call of its master. This saying is true about PF and Lubinda in particular. Lubinda wants to restore his depreciated image by singing praises to his gods (PF), unfortunately, he has further offended the entire party and the president in particular by insinuating that HEMCS is no longer important to PF. Mr Lubinda is already naked and can not mislead any more people that he has clothes on him.

    Dear Hon Lubinda, How are you my man? In terms of road network, I do agree with you that PF is trying but it is doing so using borrowed funds whose repayment period will soon begin. Since these roads do not generate funds, where will the money for repayment come from? Repayment of these loans will make Zambians suffer. Secondly, yo party has introduced a thuggerly culture of pangas. Zambians hate this culture to the core. Thirdly, yo party is largely interested in appointing old people into positions of authority at the expense of young, intelligent & hardworking youths. Youths are the ones that put PF into power. Fourthly your Govt has denied the Zambian pipo their constitution after spending colossal sums of money. Fifthly you are seriously abusing Public Order Act. Based on these,…

    DEC must visit Lubinda and search his house thoroughly because whatever he is smoking is definitely dangerous and illegal.

    Given, this infrastructure development talk is now starting to grate on our eardrums, please stop it. The government has a multitude of things to do for its people and all you sing about is infrastructure development and winning elections! Really? In your mind, this is the only thing worth talking about? The following issues among many still need to be done: a]getting value for money for our copper so that we reduce on borrowing b]unifying all the tribes in this great country c]strengthening and respecting good governance institutions d]respecting chiefdoms and citizens in general e]ensuring appointments to jobs are on merit and not on friendship or family tree basis f]ensuring diversification of the economy through agriculture and tourism g]beefing up the education system. PF, kuya bebele

    What needs urgent fixing in the politics of Zambia is the thinking of the electorate. Due to their ignorance, Zambian voters are capable of anything. Indeed, they have surprised themselves time and again.

    The thinking of the average blogger on this site does not represent the thinking level and analytical skill of the average Zambian voter. Nor are those now vying for this or that party to win the next presidential elections, willing to go out there, confront the situation and all the police brutality that is out there; and educate the ignorant electorate.

    Indeed the average blogger on this site is like the Greek philosophers of old. We seem to specialize in discussion ideas. Good though this is, it does not translate into votes for any party or candidate.

      @digga, it is obvious that you are a died in the wool kaponya who is unable to understand how a country is governed. For heavens sake, infrastructure development cannot stand alone, it is just a subset of the big package required to run a country successfully. You want to trivialize good governance? This is laughable. All nations on earth treasure this, it is a sign of independence which should be felt by all citizens. Why do you think we fought for liberation? All countries with bad governance records eventually slide into dictatorships which also leads to financial incapacity. Zambia is the second largest copper producer in Africa, but due to lack of proper planning, we keep on being short changed by outsiders and end up with heavy debts. Wake up digga or else go and dig your own grave!

    I will not be surprised if Lubinda recommends Winter. I suspect he has leaked the Winter boot especially with the cold front approaching. Somebody bring a meteorologist we find out the geographical position of Lubinda in relation to Winter

    That is the beauty of democracy. You can dream and dream as much as you like. But you pathetic failures (PF) are trying to erode our hard earned freedom of speech, assembly and association (civil liberties). This is the most defamed party on earth (PF). To discount SATA as the soul catalyst of this party is being naive. Sata is PF and PF is SATA. If you remove SATA from the equation then there is no PF, only the cartel that has betrayed and are reaping from Sata’s fortunes. Michael while in opposition set a very very bad example of how politics are supposed to be conducted. He brought insolence, rudeness, no respect for others. As long as he had a crowd following him he would insult anybody at will.
    Our hope is that God will raise a moses to stir us away from this mess.

    The infiltration of SELF-ADULATING POLITICOS from ZWD on this site has become so obvious these days. It is so depressing visiting this site nowadays because it has become so predictable in terms of comments.

    If the popularity of some opposition parties on blogs was as real on the ground (i.e., the city streets and the highways and byways of the countryside), 2016 elections would be a cakewalk—BUT IT AIN’T THAT SIMPLE! The sad part about all this is that the leadership of these Parties take the on-line popularity too seriously, forgetting where the real electoral battles are fought and won—which is definitely NOT on-line!

    Lubinda’s statement is very true for as long as the majority of voters in Zambia today live in rural and peri-urban areas with NO ACCESS to the Internet.

    I can see the confusion with the people in the diaspora, that PF is working because you see construction …
    Truth be told is that 99.9% of all construction is all from the previous administration whether you admit it or not.
    PF has also lost a lot of popularity and cannot win a general election without rigging or manipulating the electorate again.
    Come 2016, we are voting PF OUT!!

    No way Jose, in your dreams! Unless this double speak to test the water and decide whether or not to throw the hat in the ring. But you are going about it the wrong way because you are discrediting yourself. Another of the clowns we thought was smart, but just had spurts of brilliance at that time. Shameful way to fall from grace, when he could have bide his time and built on public symphathy he enjoyed when he was unceremoniously kicked out of cabinet by the “clown” president.
