And headman Kasungami echoed the chief’s statement that acting president rupiah Banda continues leading the country.

Headman Kasugami said his people were ready to vote for Mr Banda because they want to see Economic developmental progerammes continue which have been embarked on in the area.

“we are happy with what the late president left for us ,we are seeing schools and clinics being constructed and we want these to continue . I will encourage my people to vote for Mr. Banda, said the traditional leader.

This was after mr pande inspected the Kizhiba community school which government is upgrading to a basic school.

  1. People in MMD are trying to use innocent people like chiefs to campaign for them because the are afraid of losing there Jobs, once somebody else is in power. PLEASE let people choose a man of their choice. Do not use them for your own selfishness.

  2. That is why it is difficult for the opposition to win because these people have already been given a lot of things and when the nation was morning the MMD guys like Teta, Chitala perhaps were visiting the Chiefs/Headmen.

  3. It is difficult for opposition to win because they are all so greedy for plot number one. If they were not so greedy they would have formed a pact and won but now RB will take it, face facts.

  4. sad sentiments from the chief. there are better wayz of saying things but a chief like him shouldn’t take sides because amongst his people are those who figures it the other way. shame on you chief.

  5. It is a shame for chiefs to get to much involved in politics. What happens if MMD lose the elections? Will PF or HH provide the maximum support? If MMD is giving them money, just accept and your voting is secret.

  6. I wouldn’t worry so much about chiefs if I was a politician. They have very little influence in the way their ‘subjects’ vote. We saw this in the last election. And, by the way, chiefs should be educated to desist from partisan politics. Their subjects are under no obligation to subscribe to their beliefs. They should be prosecuted for corruption.

  7. Wise chief.Pipo get facts right.I worked under sugar dad(RB).He is not tribal,far from it.He respects pipo.he is very kind.He delivered a speech in katete in fluent English.Spoke few words in chewa and switched to English our official language for the seek of others he said. Can Sata do that????RB discusses issues of development..Satas interviews discusses Pipo and history and throws Mad at others.I”m afraid HH has started coping Sata.
    Sata calls is opponents -tribalist,corrupt,thief,under five etc
    HH calls them tribalist,corrupt
    RB calls them my colleagues in the opposition not even using there names.What a man…He is changing Zambia into descent language in politics

  8. It is sad to note that the most bloggers here who are for HH or Sata are based outside the country and they really do not know what’s happening on the ground in Zambia as far as the fourth-coming presidential bye-elections are concerned. The truth of the matter is that HH/Sata will not win these elections this year. The only chance they hard was the PF/UPND pact. So lets face the facts. RBB will be elected president come November. Those who are for HH/Sata are just waisting their valuable time posting meaningless comments here. Just wait for 2011.

  9. # 16 wiseman, is RB your father? lets forget about personal involvement, lets talk about national matters. tell me something that this sluggish RB has stood for?

  10. What do you expect when a chief is given a pajero but dont worry its not the chiefs voting but the subjects who dont benefit anything. Its SATA and Pf to plot 1. HH hold you fire coz you will be shocked with the out come of the elections.

  11. The chief has been bought a Pajero, sugar, fuel money, etc. He is blinded by the car he never dreamed of.Abash such chiefs.

  12. #16 its true u’re wise.sata always campaigns in bemba and talks about names but he didnt say so far what he will do 4 the people.HH also doesnt know how to campaign,he says he will reduce tax,but how he doesnt give wise answer.its a mathematical thing guys,MMD is winning again.my chief ingwe or chief kasempa wasn’t bribed,i come from there and i go there several times,there is really some development there than a few years ago.it was a remote area but now its fine.

  13. i think kids should be taught developmental issues at an early age,like in japan,you build mud houses all over town in one filthy main road,i bet the only tared road in solwezi,and you call that development.this is the 21st century guys,how long will our zed remain a village.twanaka,we have the resources its just a lack of reasonable pipo to set the rite priorities

  14. thabo mbeki,rsa president was forced to resign yesterday due to his incompetnce,zedians lets not allow incompentent pipo into office in the first place.abash rb!

  15. a chief will do just about anything to own the Pajero his been promised.
    Pipo when are we going to develop from cheap politics of giving bread and butter to poor Zambians?.We have plenty of resources to develop our conutry to full capacity but becoz of ba nyandule we put in office they channel the country’s wealth into their pockets and forget the people who put them in power.Ladies and gentlemen lets vote wisely and not electing cockroaches in office once again.lets think beyond the chibuku they are buying us and vote for capable leaders.

  16. LETS BE VERY CAREFUL YOU KNOW WHAT,BWATO AND SATA DO NOT SUPPORT ANY CEREMONY IN OUR MOTHER LAND,ZAMBIA.SATA IS NOT THERE TO REOGNISE OTHERS CULTUERES OR TRADITIONS.BE CAREFUL YOU EXCITED BEMBAS,THIS SATA IS A PURE DICTATOR AND HE CAN MAKE US FEEL FORSAKEN.PLS BANTU BA MULUNGU,OPEN YOUR EYES.

  17. #30, do not misinform Zambians. Thabo Mbeki has been recalled from presidency by his party,ANC, for other reasons but incompetence.

    As dor the Kaonde chief campaigning for RB, it is quite unfortunate. Chiefs must be impartial.

  18. Guys face the facts RBB is going to plot 1, our political leaders never listen, we Zambians have been calling for a formidable opposition but they (opposition) keep themselves fragmented, what a shame!! Chief or no chief RBB is going to plot 1.

    Pa nkolokoooooooooooooooo!!!

  19. Fellow youths let us give our votes to our fellow HH ni muzatu guys.Together we make HH the fourth Republican President.This is the chance for all of us.VIVA HH,VOTE WISELY VOTE HH

  20. LETS BE VERY CAREFUL YOU KNOW WHAT,BWATO AND SATA DO NOT SUPPORT ANY CEREMONY IN OUR MOTHER LAND,ZAMBIA.SATA IS NOT THERE TO RECOGNISE OTHERS CULTUERES OR TRADITIONS.BE CAREFUL YOU EXCITED BEMBAS,THIS SATA IS A PURE DICTATOR AND HE CAN MAKE US FEEL FORSAKEN.PLS BANTU BA MULUNGU,OPEN YOUR EYES.DON’T WASTE YOUR VOTES ON SATAN

  21. ba nyandule muli busy kodya buledi yamene tasiya mu kitchen.
    this time we will spray you with target.

    Lets vote wisely

  22. The new generation is more of mixed blood in Zambia. Tonga,Kaonde,Lamba,Lozi,Lunda,Nsenga, Ngoni, Bemba etc. This is where Mr Sata has failed lamentably in thinking he is superior to other tribes. A mere twist of the tongue? His annoyance is now centered on RB since he reconciled with the late. As a voter he no longer impresses me. He may end up with another blocked Valve in his heart which will take 25 minutes again to clean up……….

  23. Chiefs should move with time and send their children to school or they shall continue calling the cattle hides they put on leather jackets. Learm from other societies where members of the royal families are well informed.

  24. The chief has been hijacked by poverty, kindly forgive him. I believe he is not closer to a river to jump into the Boat ubwato or the man of the moment HH.

  25. when all is said and done,the current crop of leaders has lamentably failed us.the onus is therefore on us the youth to strategize and push our zed forward.stop all this tribalism talk pliz.one zed one nation

  26. one zed one nation, one party one leader, and that leader? Dr Kenneth Kaunda uwamuyayaya. Ati Kumulu ni lesa panshi niba Kaunda. People do not worst time with these old leaders fipuba fyonse. Only the young people will change Zambia.

  27. KK wa nerve? how can he take over Jesus’s job. Am sure they have planted weed at statehouse and all the presidents in Zambia go banana’s. The ones going in now are already high, their levels of insanity will be out of this world

  28. ba 19 you can hung with your, am in solwezi and there is no development to preach about, mud houses lined alonga the main road and a town centre which cannot even be copmpared to a number of Groceries in Chibolya or Kanyama.development is about people receiving services regardless of the place, and PF will deliver. Viva PF, Viva Sata

  29. Iam disappointed with the comments from the Chief what if Sata or HH Wins his he going to say he has charged his mind let them learn from Chief Mukuni who says he supports the govt of the day. They should remain neutral on such issues. For real i have been in Solwezi there is no development wait until Kansanshi is closed you will see how much development is there completely nothing people from other places are the ones that have built house not the owners of the land wake up Chief seek development not compagning for RB

  30. Sata & HH are both selfish.They just want to get some change fro their campaigns well wishers.Why couldnt they heed to Zambians calls and form a pact? They know too well that they cant win as far as matters stand now and are busy misleading & deviding votes.Be like Thabo,face facts and retire from politics.Mind you,i dont think they will have the gutts to try 2011 after this eminent,self imposed defeat come NOV.

  31. The sugar disease syndrome has really spread! The Sugar Daddy is really charming weak hearts especially these tuma chiefs with literally no brains, they’re at his mess! Just a packet of sugar it’s all it takes! surely some chiefs are cheap! It’s shame to the kaondes.

  32. Nasanta bachief for your courage you have made my day.As a Kaonde who come from thjat area am deeply humbl;ed by your stand GOD BLESS AND 100%VOTE YES FOR RB FROM THAT AREA.Viva RB,VIVA MMD

  33. #54 SHUT UP IF PF SENT YOU THERE TO ORGANISE A TRIP FOR SATAN YOU’LL BE DISAPPOINTED,GO ELSEWHERE.WE KNOW WHY WE BROUGHT MMD BACK INTO POWER ,IT WAS WE IN SOLWEZI,KASEMPA ETC WHO KNOW THE TRUE LEADERS OF ZED NOT YOU CHANCERS BENT PLUNDERING THE MINREAL RICH OF OUR PROVINCE YOU WILL NEVER GOVERN AGAIN. VOTE MMD ,VOTE RB

  34. LT, What happened to my posting? Let the people leave the kaonde chief alone. Other chiefs in kasama, chongwe and other areas have already given their support for RB. It is not wrong to give a gift to a chief in our culture. you don’t go to the chief empty handed. Sata insulted the people of NWP in 2006 and he should not expect their vote this time. Copperbelt and Lusaka are not the whole Zambia for a party to win elections. Let Sata and HH go to rural areas if they want to win. HH may have chance in 2011 or 2016, but not now. Sata has no chance this year.

  35. time will tell. Zambians will decide on 30/10 who they are going to vote for. Most of us on this blog will be shoked to find our favourite losing badly for not going into all the provinces and failing to plan well.

  36. The chief was bribed with a Porche Cayene and a full tank but forgot that after the elections when his fuel has run out and RB is already in plot RB wil switch of his mobile.

    So chief you are a dimmwit for letting your subjects down.We shall see how you will service your 4X4. Vote for FDD.

  37. These guys used the body of Levy and goevrnment transport to go round bribing the chiefs in the name of the funeral. Anyway Chief Ingwe you are lost as my chief. Ulinchushi

  38. As far as I am concerned Chiefs are traditional leaders and that is why we accord them the traditional respect. Now if they are ready to dispense with the role and turn political, they should be ready to get dirty and forego the respect because we are going to analyse them from the number of wives they have to what qualifies them to comment on political matters.

    So to our honourable chief, I would say with all due respect, CAREFUL what you say about these political matters. Don’t politicize your role. You will drag your chiefdom into shame . . .
