MMD Acting president and national chairman, Michael Mabenga, has warned senior party members of stiff sanctions if they continue issuing policy statements on party affairs to the media without clearance from the national secretary or acting president’s offices.

Mr Mabenga, who is acting party president, said in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday that he was dismayed by the “complete breakdown of discipline” following the October 30 presidential election in which the MMD emerged victorious.

“I am directing that no statement on policy or administration of the party shall be entertained from any leader without clearance from the office of the national secretary or the acting president.

“This must be taken as a serious directive, a breach of which will attract stiff sanctions,” he said.

Mr Mabenga said some leaders from senior party organs had embarked on divisive campaigns by allegedly inciting party members to issue statements in the press that could create an impression that the MMD has no leadership or was deeply divided.

He said the party’s victory in last month’s election was a product of the collective efforts of the general membership and sympathisers.

Mr Mabenga said it was the sum total of every individual vote cast in favour of the MMD candidate, Rupiah Banda, that made him become fourth President of Zambia.

Mr Mabenga said the MMD campaign team that was managed by party election chairman, Mike Mulongoti, was cleared by the presidential candidate and appointed by national secretary, Katele Kalumba, under his authority as party acting president.

He said the recommended structures, which the campaign team utilised, did not create any vacuum in the party leadership or decision-making with respect to the campaign.

“I wish to note, however, that the press utterances that have been issued after MMD won the election have not pleased me and cannot be pleasing to any of our hardworking party members,” he said.

Mr Mabenga said the party leadership had not yet received a report from the campaign team for it to start making any statement on how the election strategy was conducted.

He said MMD senior members should recall that the late President Mwanawasa aborted a post-mortem of the 2006 elections to avoid divisions and accusations.

“As acting party president, I am awaiting a report from the campaign committee before the national executive committee meets. This report will show, in a judicious way, an account of how the team executed the campaign across the country,” he said.

Mr Mabenga said he had directed Dr Kalumba to table the campaign committee’s report after he had received and scrutinised it.

“I insist, however, that such an exercise cannot, with all objectivity, be conducted in the press,” Mr Mabenga said.

  3. #12 No, my friend, I’m just trying to discourage platonic relationships on the blog. Africans are realistic people with real relationships unlike Europeans who believe in virtual reality. I know lots of Germans who spend their day in internet chatrooms but are too scared to go out and meet a real girl.

  10. There is an urgent need to instil descipline in the MMD. Some members have been making unfair attacks on Katele Kalumba, through the media, over the MMD’s loss in his constituency.This has the potential of weakening the MMD party.

  11. It Tetamashimba this man is talking about because Teta seems to be already campaigning for Rupiah to be party president. This is where the party will crack because I do not think the big party wigs will allow this to happen. I can foresee Teta being expelled from the party and Rupiah failing to save his sorry and smelly backside.

  18. MatWorld u think u have a problem? there are bigger problems in this world. just look around u and u will thank God for ur situation. if u are not confortable with ur girlfriend or are insecure dump her and get someone near you, otherwise stop complaining and just live with it. hope this helps.

    Now back to the topic at hand, i think the so called ‘true blues’ will not allow rupiah and the likes of teta to hijack the party. rupiah is where he is coz the true blue wanted him there. its to their advantage. Evrything is now set for 2011. watch this space!

  26. No. 36.(Matworld…). Did you say you came to love this girl when you were in Church praying? Please,to all bloggers when you are in CHURCH concentrate on prayers. What is why when praying it is divinely recommended that we close our eyes. With miniskirts these days in church, KAYA.

    As to the topic at hand, maybe Mabenga is trying to show his muscles to RB that he is in control. Just wait, MMD will be divided deeply soon.

  30. If the data from bloggers is true, why is RB dishing out appointments like confetti on a wedding day. Do we need a bloated cabinet like the one RB is trying to put in place in the face of the financial crisis which the world is going through. Why is it that the government is always telling all sectors of the economy that money may not be that readily available and yet we keep appointing over-recycled and beyong recycling politicians? RB wants a huge team of praise singers so that come 2011 they will sing in unison his choruses of being adopted as the MMD candidate for the position of party president and allow himself to go for the five year term.

  31. Mabenga boyi you better move in swiftly and DONT LET BWEZANI BRING UNIP back in power using the back door. Dont give him the MMD Presidency. That will mark the END of the MMD as a party. The man is aorse than Sata and full of VENGEANCE (Magande and Masebo example) as if he is God himself. Anyone associated with LEVY will soon match out of the corridors of power ( Shakafuswa, Peter Mumba, Ronnie, Mpombo, etc)

  34. I am true blue MMD who was among the founder members of the party. What I find fascinating is that the majority of the current senior members of the party, with exception of Katele Kalumba, were not even there when the party was formed at Garden Hotel and at our first convention at Mulungushi Conference Centre. At that time, George Mpombo was a UNIP District Governor, Shikapwasha was in the Air Force, Rupiah Banda was a UNIP MP, Tetamashimba was a UNIP cadre working for the Northwestern province Cooperative Union, George Kunda was an obscure lawyer practicing with some law firm in Ndola- I know them all. I was a delegate with Katele Kalumba, Austin Sichinga, and many other colleagues from U

    So chill and get back talking about Michael Mabenga and not what I do on this blog. Being a woman is not all about being in the kitchen and having kids and saying yes boss all the time. Women of my type are just unstopable.

  43. Matworld. Set her free and if it was meant to be, she will come back to you. Distance relationship are extremely testing emotionally as you keep on wondering what the other partner is doing. If she/he does not answer the phone or call at the pre appointed time then your day is messed up thinking of all devilish thoughts. Basically,if you trust each other the long distance relationship baggage issue is eliminated. From what you have stated I gather you are insecure as you think she will be taken by someone else. Relax man and enjoy yourself. Let her also have a free terrain so that she appreciates what she may be missing – you

  50. Mattie boy. These days we are beset with disasters. It could be that your fiancee was swept by some of these cyclones sweeping across the world. What you should do is to first confirm whether she is alive and well. And then once this is sorted out tell her you have a sessIon with a lady toninght and gauge her reaction. If she sounds unconcerned then my dear you have lost the lady.

This prompted Mr. Kaingu not to deliver his speech, as the patrons shouted “ba pwato” and “we want Change”. And in an Interview with Journalists, Mr. Kaingu regretted the development. He attributed the cold and hostile reception to the recent salary hike for constitutional office bearers. Mr. Kaingu said the salary increment is minimal.[From Muvi TV website]

    I am surprised too that certain elements are busy writing love issues showing that they are either bored or have little understanding of the thread at hand.
    On Mabenga, he has done extremely well to come out like this on this one. Some people has like they do not know about protocol. This is why, I for likes the way the UPND is running as a political party for each NMC member and even cadres know how to behave. Let us see the reaction of GRZ MMD feallas to this.

    As for the UPND MPs, I am not surprised on their voting for the increments since president Hakainde Hichilema had already indicated that he was going to increase the salaries for all Zambians even upto ZK 3.5 Million for Civil Servants as the minimum salary.

    The money to do the increments is there only that the MMD has a protracted Cabinet which the UPND president had said will comprise of only 15 Members.

We have a population of about 10 million, we have 9 provinces and have 151 MP’s who most of them don’t add value to our development but are instead a liability .If we can cut that number by 130 or so we can save $5 million US dollars per year which can add value to developmental projects as we look at cutting down numbers on others officers.Secondly the MP’s salaries need to be taxed, most developed countries Senators/MP’s have their salaries taxed.

  86. #133. UNDERTAKER, great stuff. So it appears some of the Undereducate’s PF MPs have seem president Hakainde Hichilema’s sense in increasing the salaries of all Zambians instead of the not-known-where more money in your (Zambians’) pockets is coming from.This is why, I and a few others have always maintained that MMD and the mighty IPND have more in common to make a useful PACT than the advocated for UPND-PF PACT which failed due to the Undereducate’s thoughts that he could trick the educated UPND National Management Committee by overlooking that UPND has educated think tanks. Anyhow, nice that PF MPs are seeing the sense in real change and maybe they can join the only proper opposition.

  87. #132. New Zambia, the US has both the Senate and the House of Representatives. I haven’t followed or studied their system properly but my understanding is that their is one senator from each state with 2 representatives per state. Also, their is an Administrative Governor for each state who runs affairs in it. Otherever the case, our system is a confusion mix of both the British ans US systems, I suspect. It is good to change ours for the better, let us simply put educational minimum qualifications as Masters Degree to allow one stand for MP and also Republican President since a Masters is enough to get one a lecturership or researcher position at a university. Then, proper debates for us.

    Checkout #28, Dr Shock’s analysis, on the parallel LT thread:

    w w w .lusakatimes.com/?p=5750

    for a comprehensive outline of my points above.

    Zambia is a place of possibilities and Zambians, Togethers as ‘One Zambia, One Nation’, YES we shall do it in 2011 by endorsing the UPND manifesto to form GRZ. Viva president Hakainde Hichilema and his UPND Team.

    The MMD is just completing late LP Mwanawasa’s term according to their 2008 Presidential bye-elections campaign message and so let us endorse a performing team, UPND, in 2011.

  89. ““Various newspapers gave us a clear picture of who got how many votes in the Northern Province, how many votes one got in the Southern Province… but it is a clear picture of disunity getting into Zambia,” Dr Kaunda said. “People scored on tribal lines, but that is a dangerous development.”Dr Kaunda said despite having preached against disunity in the beginning, it had continued to manifest itself in the country.“We preached against that [disunity] in the beginning, One Zambia One Nation but are we going to now allow One Zambia, 72 Nations?” he asked.” Source: maravi.blogspot.com /2008 /11/ kk-deplores- tribalism-of- oct-30 .h t m l

    “Dr Kaunda also questioned how people could preach One Zambia 72 Nations in 2008 and at the same time accept US President-elect Barack Obama’s emphatic victory on behalf of the Zambian people.”

    Good points Super Kenny, but what about the votes in Eastern Province? Did you forget about them deliberately?

    Anyhow, you points are noted although you did not comment about good voting patterns in Northwestern and Western Provinces. Also, the October elections were ONLY to allow the MMD to finish late LPM’s term and respect the Constitution and REAL VOTING PATTERNS will be seen in 2011 when everyone should endorse HH and UPND.

  91. Thanks #135, i think we need to study the various systems for the developed countries and come up with the best. We definately need a reduction in the number of MP’s. 2 Representative MP’s from each province and a govenor wouldn’t be a bad idea, at least it would be a cost saving measure to the taxpayers. Definately Merit and competence should be guiding factors. I like your idea of the masters qualification and i only hope it won’t be fought tooth and nail, maybe you need to provide education on this forum the advantagers of having MP’s with masters qualifications. I also feel the MP’s salaries need to be taxed so that they understand what taxpayers go through.

  92. COMMUNITY development minister Michael Kaingu was on Friday night booed by people that attended the Christian Arts Promotion (CHAPRO) awards ceremony after he attempted to deliver a special greeting from President Rupiah Banda.

    They will always be jeering at them. Unless they go to shangombo. Not in Lusaka and Kitwe where the drivers of the economy are.

  93. MMD, RB Tetamashimba now know that Katale and his uncle Chiluba are not incharge of Luapula province. Being from Luapula I am extremely proud that the province decided not to be misled by Chiluba, BY,Katele and others to be against Sata. For me Sata is a great man, he is the only non Luapula politician who stood up against the persecutions of people from Luapula by Mwanawasa MMD government and post newspapers. It is a known fact that Katele and his uncle Chiluba because of their greed for money were working with Mwanawasa against their own people from Luapula whom they had framed. People from Luapula know this and that is why Chiluba and Katele and MMD are finished in Luapula.

  94. The year’s ending has coincided with the end of high copper prices. Since June 30 of 2008 to date, the price
    of copper has basically HALVED. And our country once again missed an opportunity to “transfer Zambian
    wealth to Zambian hands”. There is no doubt that the so called “economic successes” will prove to be hollow,
    and not as solid as the MMD Administration has claimed. Opportunity presented itself, through the high
    demand of Zambia’s resources, and yet very few Zambians have benefited from this high. And for those few
    Zambians who have benefitted, the benefit is brief, and this bubble too will burst.

    Former four hundred metre hurdles world champion, Samuel Matete, says he will help erect a modern sports facility for youths on the copperbelt.

    Matete who lifted the world title in Japan in 1991 is involved in community sports in Kitwe.

    Matete told ZNBC in an interview that the youth sports facility will be constructed in Kitwe next year.’

  102. Welcome on the blog Maestro. I like your proffessional cotributions.Lets persuade our friends from PF so as to change things in 2011. MMD is assciated with recycled leadership, Huge and expensive government, poor ecnomic policies borrowed from UPND.Reasons for voting for either HH or Sata are suppose to debated in a proffessinl way now or never. Sata has a long hisory in Zambuian politics and his capacity to plan and analyse a situation is questionable. He has no capcity to implement a long term plan due to age and previous political dissapontment. Lets people see sense in voting a young man in HHH 2011 for progress. He should in return embrace the grassroot without reservation. Abash MMD.

  103. #161, Dimuna, thanks a lot. You wrote ‘Sata has a long hisory in Zambuian politics and his capacity to plan and analyse a situation is questionable. He has no capcity to implement a long term plan due to age and previous political dissapontment.’ The Undereducate is a let down especially that he does not understand the Country’s Constitution which he helped coin in 1996 or so. We as a Nation however need his advice since he has served in various GRZs since the colonial times. Critical is that we need not overlook education for us to move with speed to catch up with the rest of the WORLD and this is where the UPND comes in for it has technocrats of all manner though we need Prof Chirwa also.

    Mabenga has said the truth and only those that listen will shut there stinking mouth in the MMD.The trouble maker is Teta, he want to show RB72 that he is the only supporter with stragies in the party.Dont forget ba Teta that days are numbered, you will be disappointed too.
    Go Mabenga Go mabenga former MTTC principle.

  106. Katele and Mabenga should both be removed from their positions. They are criminals. We want a clean MMD and nothig to do with Chiluba and his tandem of thieves. Bring back Aka and those orginal guys to lead the party. Even Bob Sichinga should be persuaded to come back home. They are more civilised than this witch doctor, mfwiti, Katele.

  108. The truth of the matter is that “KaKa” has a lot of support among the grassroots particularly on the CB, Luapula and Northern Provinces and these are the areas that contribute a sizeable number of delegates to the convention. Mabenga and Teta may not be a match to KaKa in terms of support. As far as those areas are concerned “ni bikapo yewe”. MMD members had the opportunity to reject KaKa at their 2005 convention but he defeated an equally high profile candidate whom I cannot remember. Even LPM failed to stop him. “BIKAPO YEWE”

    166. your flag KALYA WACHA, Elija Chisanga will be doing I come back in the next 3 weeks I think, if I am not mistaken with some media report I read some few days ago.

    On Bob Sichinga, I do not know, but the man is an opportunist I think. Hence, he has trouble fitting in where no opportunities to jump to the top are available.
