MMD ordered Station to stop running opposition adverts

General News MMD ordered Station to stop running opposition adverts

On 20 October 2008, James Kapita, provincial chairperson of the ruling Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), instructed the Solwezi FCC radio station programme manager to stop running political adverts for opposition parties and threatened to revoke the radio station’s license once the ruling party won the presidential by-election.

In a statement dated 21 October 2008 emailed to MISA-Zambia and later in a telephone interview on 27 October 2008, station manager John Kamwanga said that James Katoka Kapita called the radio station claiming that he had received instructions from the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Mike Mulongoti, not to allow any political advertisements and programmes on the community radio station.

Kamwanga said that Kapita then started issuing threats when he was asked to produce a letter from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to back his claims.

Kamwanga said that although MMD officials had been to the station twice to collect quotations for political adverts, the party had not returned to place such adverts on the station.

“The facts of the matter are that on 16 October 2008, Honorable Benny Teatamashimba collected a quotation for a one-hour programme and on the 11th of the same month, an MMD official came to the studio and collected a quotation for an advert, but since then they have not come back to us,” he said.

The radio station is based in Solwezi, the provincial headquarters of the northwestern province of Zambia.

  1. Zambians lets stop fueling suggestins that elections have been riggid. Bufi bwabuta tutu. The problemwe we have in Zambia is regional voting. Everyone of us when voting has been looking at putting someone who comes from his/her ethinic grouping. Western and North- Western will decide for us who becames president as they had no one of their own to vote for in this election.

    The solution to this problem is introduction of Federal Gvnt systen in our constitutionso that regions govern themselves. VIVA CITIZENSHIP DEVELOPMENT PARTY. PUTING PEOPLE FIRST,

  2. # 1 AND 2 STOP BEING CHILDISH ON THIS BLOG! WE DON’T NEED ILLITERATES LIKE YOU! WHAT WE NEED HERE ARE PEOPLE WITH INNOVATIVE VIEWS AND ISSUES. WHAT DOES BEING # 1 OR # 2 GOT TO DO WITH THE TOPIC AT HAND?

  3. TYRANNY at its best! Pray hard country men and women because what lies ahead may reduce us if not worse than Zimbabwe. RB is much more closer to Uncle Bob than Sata, do you know that?

  4. Mulongoti, chitala, VJ. These are the people who have illegally delivered this election to the otherwise losing candidate RB.There is no doubt that elections have been rigged. Should the people accept this? I say NO!

  5. BOZA, SATA HAD A VERY POWERFUL CAMPAIGN TOOL IN THE NAME OF THE POST, DID RB SHUT DOWN THE POST,YATSANI, QFM.. LETS LEARN TO ACCEPT DEFEAT. VIVA WESTERN AND NORTH WESTERN PROVINCES, YOU HAVE RESCUED US FROM THE MOUTH OF A TYRANNY… WOOOOW, I AM SO HAPPY. IN CHINESE WE SAY “WO HEN KUAI LE”

  6. let freedom of the press prevail and this is 2008 shutting down a radio station is so KK era. wait a minute aint we almost going back to that Hmmm!

  7. Let us be patient. It took a while for the titanic to be completely submerged in water but in the end, it did sink.
    Rupiah for Presidooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. #7, DONT VENT YOUR FRUSTRATIONS ON INNOCENT CITIZENS, IF YOUR CANDIDATE HAS LOST, WE HAVE RIGHT CHANNELS PA ZED FOR YOU TO GO AND LODGE YOUR COMPLAINTS..

  10. Thank you, please keep us posted. But Ubuntungwa are you sure? You are not in Zed where are these from. Which ones are outstanding? No hard feelings, just checking if these are official or speculative results.

  11. Am lamba and i have nothing against tongas.what i dont like is the way they vote.it clearly shows that they vote on tribal lines.if they wont change tongas will never produce a president for this country.

  12. He is right #21. 2 more constituencies have announced they are double checkind and MMD is still over 50 000 if my calculations are right. Only 20 constituencies left.

  13. oh no very soon RB is surpassing Sata the games are being played that is why results are taking too long to be released and then they will quickly do the swear in ceremony tomorrow or monday

  14. for your own info I am reliably infomerd that patrol pangaz and all sorts have been bought in bulk so brace yourselves after final results should rb win and red baret soldies have been deployed at VIP places

  15. #22 Bembas did not vote for Mazoka in 2001 they are the ones who mostly contributed to his lose though elections were rigged so how do you want them to vote for your Sata forget it. In fact there is no development in Southern province that is why even mmd can not win.

  16. THE REMAINING CONSTITUENCIES ARE 22 AND DISTRIBUTED AS FOLLOWS: 7-WESTERN, 6-N.W, 6-CENTRAL, 2-LUAPULA, 1-SOUTHERN. SATA IS CURRENTLY AHEAD BY 35,000.KAYA NGAZAWINA LOOKING AT WHAT IS REMAINING..

  17. #31 i have been to all the 72 districts in Zambia.apart from CB and LSK southern province is the most developed of the other 7 provinces.that is a fact.

  19. #35. I agree with you. All this has been in order to please the Tongas. Northern and Luapula provinces can only develop if we have a president who does not come from that area.

  20. # 36 were are you getting these results from? If the trend is true then I belive the MMD is lossing this election. Going by the margins they ahve been posting from there so called traditional areas I sory it is a lost case.

  21. Number 22..i support you 100%!This is Zambia and we are Zambians. we should look at the Quality of these leaders and not which tribe they are from..

  26. no# 9 , who told you that RB is close to mugabe that sata……. know the proper statistics,,, Viva RB ,, RB 4 plot 1. MMD is heading 4 the victory no matter what stories u may come up with.. The other time its the ECZ now the MMD Gvt….Grow up!!!!!pipo.

  27. PF AND HH SHOULD JUST FORM A COALITION BEFORE THEY DECLARE THE PRIZDO IF REALLY THEY KNOW THAT MMD IS CARRING THE DAY.NO ONE IS GOING TO LOOSE ANYTHING IF AT ALL THEY ARE ALL FIGHTING FOR THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.LET US MOVE WITH WISDOM.
    BECOZ IT IS LIKE OUR MOTHERS IN REALLY TREASURE CHITENGES AND SUGER WHICH LAST FOR DAYS THAN HAVING OUR NATION FOR GOOD.NOW I HAVE STARTED GET SOME SENCE ON WHY JULIA CHIKAMONEKA STRIPED NECKED.

    I THANK YOU ZAMBIANS WHO VOTED TO MAKE A CHANGE
    WE CAN STILL FACE 2MORO AS LONG AS OUR LORD LIVES WHO WATCHS EVERY CORNER OF ZAMBIA
    GOD BLESS US ALL AMEN.

  28. I feel sorry for our country, people are so selfish. Do you know that the mmd alone without the help of the so called presiding officers cant easily rig the elections?? They have been bribed a few thousand kwachas which will not take them anywhere and sold the leadership of the country to unpopular chaps.
    Be ready for worse; Katele, VJ, mbita chitala and all the plunderers are back to rule over you.
    Shame to zambia, what are we going to tell our children. Other countries have “good reasons” why they are poor, we dont!!!

  29. when sata was being helped by the post what did the MMD say, sata was even cheated to be given a cow and yet frm the same place he is getting less than 500 votes …….. shame on sata and the post,,,m
    sata conceead defeat!!!!!!!!!retire atleast u have tried….

  30. out of 11million pipo,we going to have a president voted by 600,000 pipo,minority president who cnt command the economic centres of the country.in as much as the rural chaps may vote,nothing will be done to them,mmd only gets to thse places wen they want votes,poor zambians

  31. # 53 you should be a high order of an embecile. Who between the 2 should conceed defeat not RB. His stronghold is giving him peanuts. 18 remaining un officialy will give hime 30,000 votes and give Sata 10,000 who wins at the end. Sata is carrying the day dont bank on old stories of you father having been a hunter and meanwhile you dont even have hooves to show for. RB should conceed. Its game over for him.RB has to bridge the gap and he is doing at a snails pace which is not impresive.

  32. Vj,katele and danny kalale were al trained in israel and rusia by govt in elections..they are OP in case u dnt knw,thy hav rigged ths election again..beta get ready for sleepy nyama soya..

  33. We are poor because we have wrong people running the affairs of the nation. Its simple, you have selfish people who want to be in Govt even when they are not doing what the nation needs. Selfish desires and motives have always been killing us. Bootlicking too much in Zambia to the extent that people are rallying behind people who have no agenda for an ordinary zambian. Its really sad to see our country lagging behind in development when we claim to be independent. This MMD has been in power and still the infrasture left by colonial masters and KK. Its a pity that politicians are still intimidating organisationa nd people in this era.

  34. Tax payers have spoken so why bloody delay the elections.This all process of voting is fraud for Africa,look what happened in Kenya and the split of ANC in South Africa and not forgetting Zimbabwe.Were do we go from here is what we should start pondering about.

  35. #49, its a presidential by-election and no coalition after the ballots have been cast. They should have formed a pact before but now its too late anyway. Please remember and be serious about this: PF is an individual’s party and if you are fighting for democracy, that is WHAT you defintely don’t need in govt. Whether we like them or not, at the moment MMD are an organised ‘democratic’ outfit and that is why they deserve to continue in govt. SATA should have been smarter than enjoying addressing a multitude of brainless unemployed youths. They account for very little in helping move the country forward and that has been his problem. He simply doesn’t deserve the PRESIDENCY! KK told you!

  36. We want peace the elections are over politicians have their own interests.Morgan and Mugabe drink coffee together meanwhile poor cadres died.Leaders should be in front dont send poor people to fight for you.

  37. apparently an MMD cadre was caught with extral ballot papers in her chitenge…We need to pray for zambia for peace and stability and no matter who wins God is the judge and if it’s no God’s will he will deal with them himself

  38. Iwe chi ndiwe mmd ichindike conceading ifinshi because as far as i know Sata is still leading. Though am not sure with the above results i don’t where you guys are getting them because so far we are still remaining with 22 constituences to be announced and the next official announcement will be at 15:00hrs. Hope someone has an eye on the chief rigger VJ and his minions mulongoti and teta otherwise they can just cook up fake results and make sleepy rb to carry the day

  39. For as long as poverty levels are still high, the voting pattern will never change.Selfish chaps will always ensure that the poor remain poor, coz for as long as they are poor, the selfish shall continue to manipulate them.

  40. Its interesting to note that UPND and PF have a total of 939 910 – according to ECZ latest results. this means that if HH and Sata has put their pride and selfishness aside, Akulu Mphuno could have been sent packing back to his village where he was dozing day in, day out. Lessons should be learnt from this otherwise, MMD may rule for a longer period than UNIP did. By 2011, they would have had 20 years of rule.

  41. PF still has life!!! Viva … change of government. Get a different flavor. America is where it is because voters haven’t been too rigid in their voting and change of Presidents. Fellow Zambians…please stop being too afraid of the unknown. Those chaps in power are determined to remain in office to hide their skeletons in their closets. MMD you can laugh now; hold on just a little bit longer now. He who laughs last, laughs the best! PF is going to state house.

  42. I totally agree with you #61. Please Zambians dont be used as sacrificial lambs when all those politicians will be drinking coffee together. Zambia is a rich nation in peace, lets maintain our riches. As for my man HH, you have indeed proved your intelligence. Its a pity Zedians could not see beyond and for which we will live to regret. Anyway, 2011 is not far from now HH go go go. We are with you.

  44. Well the writing is on the wall. One Sycle Mata has won in the reverse. What a moron of a President Zambia would have had. But again, wait a minute ….. aint it a sleeping giant that has overtaken him?

  45. I wish to request all Pf losers to join me in welcoming RB as he walks hand in hand with beautiful Thandie (first lady) down the lawns of plot one witheir beautiful twins. Oh what a happy family. Oh hail my dear RB and please check the egg faced post newspapers.

  46. #66, you are so shallow in your thinking. For your own information i am a phd holder who can easily make it anywhere in the world…LOUD EMPTY TIN!

  47. Now that the ‘extermination’ of the PF is inevitable, two troubling questions are: (a) how will the Post clear the ‘nkongole’ owed to National Airports?; and (b) how will Sata pay the ‘nkongole’ owed to whomever hired the chopper for him? We only hope that there are no outstanding ‘nkongoles’ to those ‘hired crowds’ and whomever was ferrying them. I think these will be difficult times for the old man. We wait to see how issues will unfold. We thank God for intervening once again. Zambia does NOT deserve to be lead by a man of Sata’s caliber, NO! We are also breathing some fresh air on this blog today as the ‘pabwato’ nonsense has disappeared. Indeed, empty tins make the loudest noise.

  48. This idea of blaming others when you lose is sign of immaturity!! When one choses to take part in elections, there will always be a winner and a loser. In this case when SATA led(won) in Lusaka, CB, Luapula and Northern all was well. Now that other provinces seem to have voted for others, there is vote rigging, the opposition was not allowed to display posters etc. No, no, no those are just excuses. Go back and plan afresh!!

    SATA and HH were were very unwise!! If they had worked together, they would not be looking for excuses as they are doing now.

    Finally, let us have political parties which are NATIONAL.
    THE RURAL VOTE IS IMPORTANT: Sata should have known from 2006

  49. ITS NOW TIME PF AND UPND POOLED THEIR RESOURCES (VOTES) TO DISLODGE MMD. THIS IS THE CALL FROM EVERY WELL MEANING ZAMBIAN WITH INTEREST AT HEART TO DEVELOP ZAMBIA. WE ZAMBIANS ARE HUMBLY ASKING BOTH PARTIES TO BURY THEIR HATCHETS AND JOIN HANDS. WE DO NOT WANT MMD/UNIP AGAIN. THERE IS TOO MUCH POVERTY IN THE COUNTRY WITH ALMOST EVERYTHING. TO PUT IT SIMPLY, PF, UPND PLEASE PUT TOGETHER YOUR VOTES AND KICK OUT MMD. THANKS.

  50. I cant wait for the final results mwe! U can just collapse and die from the anxiety! Abena Pabwatooo mu li kwisa! Chaba shani ma zizizi so?? Yesterday there was a lot of noise here! hahahahaha!!!

  51. And this ‘unholy’, ‘unusual’ and extremely strange Post-Sata alliance teaches us one big lesson in life: that operating on the basis of EXPEDIENCY rather than PRINCIPLE can be very, very dangerous and embarrassing.

  52. The bwato people have gone on national mourning. It seems the writing is on the wall.

    Anyway, we now have some peace on this blog.

    ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION

  53. Now i can see that Zambia is Gods chosen nation.He makes a way where it seems there is no way.I couldnt imagine SATA-N Ruling me with only 4 years behind the desk.R.B is atleast an economist which Sata-n said called irrelevant,”u call education irrelevant”…you must be a joker.

  54. Pipo cool down here is latest update according to 14 HOURS NEWS ZNBC ZAMBIAN TIME, PF IS STILL LEADING, FOLLOWED BY RB MMD, HH STILL THIRD, GEN MIYANDA FORTH

  55. #52 My brother we totally agree with you. The old folks are back to eat what they left for this country. This is all becoz of the selfishness of the oposition leaders who could not agree to form a pact.The pipo of Zedia spoke about this but they could not listen. So Vj, Katele, Mbita, Teta even Ben Mwila is likely to bounce back and even the Xaxier Chungu and those who run away from the courts. Can you believe this?

  56. Is Zambia for the same peopple? One person being in the office for too long makes him think that he owns the country. This is now no difference from the UNIP era if MMD wins. I am annoyed, why cant people retire and give chance to others? Is this the examp;e they are giving us? I will also hang on to my appointment till I dont know.

  57. Tyrant
    Dictator
    Old-skull

    do we want a grade 4 to rule us for 3 years. c’mon guys………
    you should have thought abt that before casting a ballot for that old chap. he’s only going to make Zambia’s economy a lot like Zimbabwe (or worse)

    One Zambia, One Nation

  62. #86 I salute you.If only we had more people like you on the blog then we could develop better ideas.Some bloggers act like soccer fans who think they can play better or coach better even when they have never played any soccer in their lives.
    Politics should be about planning and selling one self’s ideas of developing the nation.Losers as you advise must go back to the drawing board
    Thank God though as we are not going to be ruled by a mere Gr7 at this age of our country.It was going to be shameful and we would have been a laughing stoke of our neighbours and the world at large

  63. why is this happenin to us zambians…..im none partisan but Ruphia is the worst candidate among the for.20 year s of the same crap……Nway blame it on the rural pips who aint educated.big up to ba sata.u really tried.im going to drown my sorrows by tha nearest kantemba while awaitin ba florence to declare that big nose as my president

    PF 666,194
    MMD 652,354

    Never mind about UPND , HP or “void” they are in the race for formality. A scam has just been exposed that “thieves” are inflating figures( showing over 50% voter turn out)and giving RB the excess votes. VJ and the gang at work. Well, I will never vote for the rest of my life because it’s pointless!

  65. Kasenengwa only in eastern province will be enough for RB to win it.I will accept though my best candidate is HH but in democracy thats is the way the game goes

  66. By the way let me commend zambians for the successful elections.We are a great people.It is also health that the results are this close.I am sure they are free and fair.If there was rigging RB would have already won by a laaaaarrrrge margin

  67. Sata and HH must start talking now. We have a big problem because Sata is very unreliable and changes his position on different important national issues daily. That is what makes those in UPND very uncomfortable to support Sata. In addition the way he treated Sakwiba Sikota after 2006 election is one lesson UPND has learnt about Sata. However, as you see Sata is more popular than HH and this leaves the situation very tricky. About Tongas changing the way they vote, no they will not because UPND is very strong there and the candidate appears to have better ideas of developing the country. It is shameful it pains some people how southerners vote but what is happening in bemba speaking areas?

  68. God forbid! All the presidents Zambia has had after KK have been “default presidents”. FJT’s case, even the late Chama Chakoboka would have won that revolutionary-change election because everyone wanted to boot out KK and his UNIP. LPM was awaken from his sleep to become president for convenience. RB found himself by chance as a preferred candidate. And what a president! The man has not even a single vision for this country and all the vultures have resurfaced and the hoovering in the air waiting to descend on the poor country’s staggering economy.

  69. Teta,Saki,Nevers,Katele,Gen Tembo,Mulongoti,Chiluba …..what a team! All of these want to benefit personality from the national cake at the expense of ordinary poor citizen. I shudder to contemplate what will remain of Zambia. Reminds, Chiluba even started selling wild animals to foreigners and nearly sold the victoria falls to a certain tourist investor when he was president – a shameless little creature!

  70. Oh my God am very dissapointed with these elections and RBB wining kwena katwishi eko tuleya fwebena zambia. RBB has no single vision for this country becuase it was not his dream to become the president its just by chance. Look at HH or Sata, late mazoka , miyanda these had/have a vision for mother zambia hence them aspiring for the presidence but for rb its just a chance if the LPM was there he would have not been president maybe mangande would have been the successor of mwanawasa, kaya ife . We take people who have no vision to rule us God forbids. You will see what will happen in the next 3 years kaya. more corruption coming watch out. i see mmd ruling upto 2030

  71. I now strongly think even Xavier Chungu and Shansonga will now resurface to come and finish off the unfinshed business with the country’s economy.

  72. All the HH suppoters on this blog have disappeared….hahahahhah…they can’t stand the embarrassment! Kanhibiya, parliamentary 56 votes and presidential 56 votes for UPND what a “coincident”.

  73. Ubwato is made of fake materials from congo and could not sustain the waves and the current in the sea,so it has sank.LPM would have sent a chopper to rescue the crew as he did when he sent the captain to Safrica for treatment.Decency is returning to Zed.thank God and all the christians for your prayers.PF,UPND,HP lets go back and pray more.Obviously i dont like MMD but this is better result than anticipated.We need to learn our lessons by going to the townships and rural areas to campaign as these are the ones that have made the difference

  74. well, well, well. If i recall correctly alot of you bloggers

    PABWATOOOOOOOOOEEEEDDDD yourself to intense bowel movements. He who

    laughs last eh? I usually stay reserved but you guys made too much

    noise. Nine Chale, PdX and all the other speed boat captains have

    now shut up. Where are you all, my friends?! You like shouting eh?!

    NI MMMMMMMMMMMMMDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD FYE MUDALA!!!!!! The hour has come

    again!!!! VIVA RB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That doesn’t feel too good does it? hahahhahahahahahaha!!! Next time don’t be so naive….*sticks tongue out*

  75. Lesson learnt to both candidates and the electorate including the media maybe the media should get to be educated on techniques of rigging< when does rigging take place guidelines to election reporting all that is vital>It is only the media that can assist clear out suspicions but that can only be done if the media understand the rigging techniques in this case the electorate have been left to live with suspicion in some case not believe what is right>
    candidates wake up also you should have known that much of zambia”s population is in the rural area in which case some parts have completely no access to media so how do they know

  76. I hope the have been no heartattacks reported about Zambians of the unelected PF leader Sata cadreship around the whole world. I also hope that Sata will find time to have himself checked medically after this hard fought run that will be concluded in the next feww minutes.

    “One Zambia, one Nation.” Let the ‘Zambian Dream’ of having prosperous Nation continue and not remain a nightmare as it is now for president Hakainde Hichilema is still around. However, we still need a strong opposition that will keep RBB on his election campaign promises for 2011 is quite near.

  77. this artificial meat had no promises at all,forget it!!!anyway,they are arresting here if u say certain truths,so i will shut up.

  78. “Mr Sata rejects the latest results, saying “a bunch of thieves” is trying to steal the election… His party, the Patriotic Front, said it would go to court to demand a recount.”

    Source: news . bbc . co . uk / 2 / hi / africa/7704525 . s t m

    All the best Mr Sata in your petition and I hope you will not lose more money after this election campaign has had a heavy toll on you and your PF.

    As for president Hakainde Hichilema, please let us UPND campaign team focus on convincing the electorate to vote for our would-be government in 2011. There is no time and need to participate in a law “academic exercise” as you (HH) put it in 2006.

  79. Lelo! Thats what HH and Sata get for thinking they could stand alone and win against MMD. I mean really? The opposition combined got 59% of the vote! Ala! This was the perfect time to combine forces and kick a weakened MMD to the curb. Anyways, Sata lost by 2%…LOL! Now he knows what it feels like to be on the receiving end of rigging. Lets get ready for 2011 with some new and competent individuals. Not the list of candidates we had this time around.

  80. THIS IS NOT TIME TO START CONDEMING PEOPLE SATA OR HH NO LET US

  81. Ndaakona lino basa. Ndiya kulibonya kuzyopamaanza kulibaboobatika zunde. Aabo batikazyundwe ndizi kubapa imajwi aabeledde. Mupone cibotu no bantu a cisi cesu toonse tobana Zambia.

  82. The educated literate masses in urban areas who have the power of analysis have tried hard to help the nation by voting for an experienced candidate who can turn things around, but the rural dwellers, most of whome dont even understand how economics work have disapointed us again because of living for the day, receiving handouts from mmd, which have since already dissapeared until the next election, and they never learn.That is one.

    Two, last time, there were complaints from the rural areas that they were tricked to put an ‘x’ next to a candidate they didnt like, not knowing they were voting for that person; who knows what trick they pulled this time? and pipo here celebrate? guys!

  83. contd. What is there to celebrate, by having the same party, which has demonstrated selfishness so far. Its only recently when they were busy working towards increasing their salaries and we have already forgotten. Education without practice can yield nothing. Havent you seen people who are millionaires even in Zambia, who have not been to school? Its how you manage things, the ideas you have and the passion that moves things to the positive direction!

  84. Thats the kind of president we need. Its not about being scared of being a laughing stock. We dodnt care about what the rest of the world wants for us, its what we need to make our lives better and if a grade 4, as you put it has a workable vision and has in the past shown he can move things, Id rather have him, than an educated person who sits on his papers and has nothing good to show for them.

  85. Zambia twalisebana lelo tatwakalabe. MMd in Power again thru corrupted rural votes. atase, I’m an engineer now i’m going out of zambia to look for a well paying Job and I know Ai will get it. I have been patriotic enough but it seems the rural folks will be determining our destiny.

    Zambia shalapo Naya. It is my desire to leave nothing will improve here, I also blame HH. Tonga’s where he is a force kindly force him to see sense, he should have backed sata and become Prime minister. this way could have sold himself. Now Never ever shall he ever rule.

  86. Sata will never rule, just like no Tonga will ever be in plot one. Well may be just visiting yes, not as leader of the other 71 or so languages because the guys from the South stink with tribalism. What is wrong with giving the job to a non-Tonga deserving Zambia? You such bamakaka!
