About 300 Reform Party,RP, members led by the Party’s Former Chairman for elections and strategic Planning, John Ziba, have defected to the United Party for National Development,UPND.

Mr. Ziba said the Opposition UPND was the only Party in the country that would offer meaningful leadership.

Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Ziba said the RP members decided to join the UPND because it was the only party with a vision to develop the country.

Mr. Ziba accused the ruling MMD of failing to meet the expectations of people of Zambia.

In welcoming the defectors UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema, said the UPND was now growing its membership in readiness to form the next government after 2011.

The UPND President challenged President Rupiah Banda to implement programmes that focus at reducing poverty levels in the country.

He has since called upon Zambians to condemn tribal politics and instead promote unit in order to achieve the required development in the country.

And Mr Hichilema said he will soon hold a meeting with President Rupiah Banda over the global financial crisis.

Mr. Hichilema said the UNPD wrote to President Banda to give ideas to government on how to address the global financial crisis.

He said President Banda replied that he was willing to hold talks with the opposition leader when he returns from the African Union Summit in Ethiopia.

He said there is need for the opposition to demonstrate maturity in handling national issues by sharing ideas with the government.

  2. Cutey Wifey welcome!!

    I tend to like the way UPND tend to always want to give ideas to govt. I hope RB will take heed coz I really think he needs more ideas than what MMD seem to have.

    Obama has three GOP stalwats in top jobs in his administration. Thats the way UPND, sometimes we must forget petty politiking and offer real solutions. We are waiting for the outcome!

    Where is Bob Sichinga and Patrick Chisanga, anyone knows????

    Party cadres are well known to defect from one party to another. These are called political prost..utes. Those ideas from HH to govt..,it depends on who is listening to those ideas.

    Great stuff Mr Ziba and your fellow former RP party members, please do door-to-door campaigns for the U-Team to consolidate its position before the 2011 tripatite elections.

    Together YES WE ALL SHALL. If US President B. Obama has seen sense in working with president HH, why can’t Zambians see it. This is time to develop Zambia and not mere politicking. President HH give President Banda real data.

    Many thanks for the Update !! At least we know that the world is watching!! Just as Obama is willing to bring about change in the US, he is eagerly looking for global players!! It would surely be a sad case if Zambia remained behind as the world (led by Obama’s Example) moved towards a better Future for ALL!

  13. Following #17, I am sad the LT (which clearly showed its support for the Undereducate Sata by voting that it was a biggest disapoint not for Sata MC to win the 2008 Presidential elections), have deliberately not reported the news about US President Obama’s message to president HH and the UPND – a news item that was probably happened at the same event where president HH talked about meeting President RB Banda to offer him solutions over the job losses linked to the Credit Crunch.

    This is sad as LT is slowly beginning to behave like the POST (Sata’s current Imagebuilders) by failing to release news as it is supposed to but choose to report things with an ulterior motive.

    HH himself in this article mentions tribal lines ..”he has since called upon Zambians to condemn tribal’ politics”. I was just reminded of what I have heard before…

    no offense meant to anyone .

  15. 19. Jamaco greetings and great stuff.

    Whether LT and the POST choose not to fairly cover president HH and the UPND, news will always trickle down to the Zambian people and voters, normal voters, will make an educated vote in 2011 tripatite elections.

    As for “He has since called upon Zambians to condemn tribal politics and instead promote unit in order to achieve the required development in the country”, this is where Zambians MUST begin to show that we a Nation of 71 tribes with common problems to solve together and not as individuals or (a) particular tribe(s). Surely do we need people from outside Zambia, like US President Obama, to show us who is a man to elect as our President?

  16. Im glad that only the UPND has officially started campaigning for the 2011 tripartite elections following that launch of the 2011 campaign by president HH in Ndola last year.

    Indeed the remaining 2 and a half years is enough to do the job, especially with President Obama and former Zambian President FTJ Chiluba having joined the UPND campaign Team by clearing the UPND’s HH from any mud that some unteachable characters throw at him or try hard to place on him HH.

  18. Having been here for a number of yrs,i have not heard people defecting from one party to the other,most famillies have been in political parties for generations and the young people who chose to join other parties grow old and are loyal to their parties…they dont even have so many weak political parties like we do in zambia.. i think that most of these small parties should join bigger parties so we can have 3 or 4 parties of which are strong,reliable and can stand firmly not this circus we see everytime its elections.the constutution should stipulate what would happen to MPs, consellors who defect so we can have order.

  20. i think the pproblem is that peiple look to politics for wealth creation and jobs..most politicians and cadres dont even know why they belong to the party…when they can find their hole or cant fight the bull in their way then they defect and dont do it well,its a package of names and insults…lack of maturity and intergrity is huge in our politics.worse of it all the cadres do the dirty work and go back to their usual lives without positive change dispite screamin or is it insult their lungs out in the scortching sun,they cant even demand for accountability of promises made by their leaders…its even sad when you learn that they were paid in chibuku form on and on empty stomachs.

  22. “It was not fear of being sacked from the Republican vice-presidency that I gave up the job to Levy. It was just a practical thing. In the year I’m talking about, Tetamashimba was still in the UPND and therefore he has just expressed serious ignorance of what went on, although I am aware that whilst he was secretary general of UPND, the MMD used him extensively to obtain information on the goings on in UPND,” Kavindele said. source The Post.

    Now UPND congratulations for discipling ALL your former Secretary Generals, they were behind your downfall. Please choose a trusted one this time preferrably a tycoon. These poor chaps are easy bought by MMD.

    # 34. Zambia, you are spot on. Mazoka and friends did a good job in forming UPND, they were just let down by fortune seekers.

    If people demand accountability, scrutinise the past of their leaders and stop blind allegencies and being used , we can make it in Zambia but then am just repeating what one supergal said!

It is my considered view that thoz ppl voted for him coz he comes from there not that they are card carrying members of RP(that’s if RP has party cards)U will note that the voting patterns were different for presidential & parliamentary candidates.People vote for the PERSON & not the party in certain cases.A case in point is Sylvia Masebo in 2001 winning her seat in Chongwe becoz she was popular.Admittedly,i’m not in a position 2 speculate on the membership of RP..u can educate me if u have sum data??LOL

    Why not write President RB Banda of Zambia whom I believe wrote a congrats message to US President Obama about such an important message to the African people?
    Does this imply that president HH is more of a unifying factor to Zambians and Africans than President RB Banda?
    Is it that US President Obama believes that younger HH, 46 yrs, is better placed to do this task?

  34. 53. hhe hhe hhe hhe. We all know that President RB Banda, 72 yrs old, congratualted US President B. Obama on his becoming the 44th USA President, but why is it that such an important charge was not committed to Zambian President RB Banda but has been layed in the hands of 46 yr old U-Team president Hakainde Hichilema, HH?
    There is nothing about “own interpretation” here. We are dealing with the TRUTH that the US President B. Obama has seen it fit to communicate to his age-mate Zambian brother about the challenges that face us as Zambia, Africa and the World PERIOD
    Let those with eye SEE and ears HEAR. I appreciate that some characters are hostile to education or naturally are un-trainable.

  42. 67. PATE KADA. The chances of president HH winning the 2011 Zambian presidential elections will be known in 2011 when presidential candidates will file nominations.

    At that time, those who will be there will use MATHEMATICS and not just arithmetics to calculate HH’s chance or probability of becoming Zambian President.

  44. 67. PATE KADA. Also, the voting scenario will definitely change from what you saw in the 2006 and 2008 presidential elections because there will be new voters on the scene, those who have turned 18 years old and will register to vote in 2011 elections. Mind you 2011 – 2006 gives you 5 years.
    18 + 5 = 23. This means that new voters aged between 18 to 23 years old most of whom are college or university students with some looking for employment or just started working will certainly help in getting votes for president HH if the U-Team tailor their message to reach these young people’s minds just like the Obama campaign team did in the USA.UPND will decide to sponsor HH or not at its convention.

    0

    0
  45. 67. PATE KADA. Democratic UPND might chose another president to led it as a party in 2011. U-Team might maintain president HH but sponsor a fitting woman or some man as its presidential candidate.
    Besides this data, there are already people including most LT bloggers who have promised that they will vote for president HH in 2011.
    It also depends on how much support the UPND will receive from inside Zambia and Outside. Who know US president Obama might just go to Zambia to meet HH in the 2011 campaign time a thing that could convince voters to vote for HH.
    So,it is too early to shout anything useless. Let us wait for the actual votes of 2011 to speak for themselves. Now, just enjoy the show.

    What did you mean with you last line at post 131 “Ichikwela aba Tonga !” they probably are better than you bunch of thieves! you make me sick! You probably found yourself in USA through the Bemba axis of plunder

  47. #76 Engine Bbuloko greetings.

    Let us leave the tribalist to continue playing the dirty game as they are used to it. For us clever ones, let us continue doing the needful to make sure Zambia has got a President elected on the 50 + 1% threshold by the 71 or so tribes of Zambia that make up our great Nation Zambia.

    The tribalist will join us when they will realise that their behaviour is not paying dividends.

    The tribalists aim is to see no proper development to our fellow villagers and town dwellers back home in Zambia.

    Our aim is to see a better inclusive Zambia where each one’s dreams will be possible by God’s grace.

    Later!

    Despite the fact that almost all the plunder suspects are Bembas, no one has stereotyped Bembas as thieves. They should consider this as a favour from the many Zambians who are considerate and learn to respect others.

SOURCE: ww w.zambianwatchdog. com/ ? p=1065
    2. #135. New Zambia good you read it for yourself. As for those men kneeling before president HH, they are big enough to answer that question for themselves.

I am sure RB has received one aswell, but why should he get excited? Infact the letter is a copy and paste. Just changing addressees. Its great receiving a letter from Obama, but please spare us…….

  68. It will be good for all Zambians if HH will meet RB and provide solutions to Global crisis. Its not a matter of attacking the ruling party only but providing solutions to solve many problems affecting all Zambians. As for Johny Zibazako, that chap is hopeless he was there at State House with late LPM as private secretary and we know why he got fired. Even if numbers matter in politics not the dirty he’s bringing to UPND. Defecting this time campagins got finished now its time for trouble shooting. It would have been a joy if Patrick Chisanga had to come back. Zibazako has smelt something, HH watch out with such defectors. Where is Richard Kapitolo and team.

  70. #102 Legend of the Falls. No I’m not saying the letter was forged. I’m simply saying there’s nothing to be excited about. HH sent congratulatory letter to Obama. Millions and millions of people sent letters congratulating the American president and he replied. He sent orginal letters with his magnificent signature, but I’m sure all he did was ask his secretary to copy and paste, with the same message, but just changing the addressees. As an individual and as a Zambian citizen I would get excited. I just didnt expect HH, in his capacity as president of an opposition party to get that excited.

  71. #102 By the way, getting a letter from Obama has no impact on his popularity in Zambia.

    HH is a great guy, its a pity he’s popular in areas where people speak tonga. maybe lets work on making UPND less tribal.

  72. 101. SISTER greetings following your “… Maestro goodmorning….” I have been waiting to read your friday threat that Monday you were going to come for me, but todate, wednesday, I haven’t read anything to that effect.

    Have you reformed?

    On 106, you wrote “HH is a great guy, its a pity he’s popular in areas where people speak tonga. maybe lets work on making UPND less tribal”, how about HH’s popularity in the Morthwestern province which does not have many Tonga speaking people?

    On 108 you used “… Ni pa Zed fye”, which indicates that you are a Bemba frustrated character following to reference to Tonga speaking people on #106.

    Please justify that you are a non-tribal.

  73. # 106, the sooner we as progresive Zambians stop living in the past the better for this ailing country. Do you realise who started the tribal issue? Political failures have just taken advantage of this long buried issue as the instigators are longer in UPND but who will it help. Certain political party leaders have dreaful skeletons in their cupboards but because they ahil from a tribe that claims to be owning Zed no one talks about it. The Ostrich burying its head in the sand will scotch the backside of this country as we deserve better.

  74. #112 Maestro Hhehhehhehhe. What do you mean? Reformed to what?

    Firstly I dont belong to any tribe. I am a proud Zambian. I’m Tonga, bemba, lozi, lunda, lamba, ila, kaonde, tumbuka etc. Zambian. Lets review everything that I have written on the blog. Never at one time have I leaned to one tribe. I have attacked you because you have directly shown your hatred for the bembas. Noone else has been so open about this. Its old fashioned. Its ancient. Its dangerous. It stinks like your shoes. Tribalism is evil. Please desist from being openly tribal. Lets leave this sort of thing for illitrates who do not understand the consequences.

  75. #116 Sister I posted #115 before your #116.

    There is just no need to argue with some people. Do you enjoy being insulted by some deluded person?

  77. 116. SISTER, on your “Firstly I dont belong to any tribe. I am a proud Zambian. I’m Tonga, bemba, lozi, lunda, lamba, ila, kaonde, tumbuka etc.” Good for you.

    As for me, I am a full Tonga person. My mother is full Tonga too and my late father was Tonga also.

    As regards your accusation ” I have attacked you because you have directly shown your hatred for the bembas”, can you SISTER provide proof by quoting my exact words and where the quote is sourced from. Without this you are a NOISY GONG seeking to smear mad at me which won’t stick as their is clean evidence on all my writings that I love all Zambians including all other world Citizens.

    So, I am waiting for your proofs!

  78. It’s good to know Banda is ready to meet & talk sensible issues with Hichilema.Now,this John Ziba i believe was very close to the late Mwanawasa & was actually sacked,can’t remember reasons for sacking but he was close to Levy,i didn’t know he had gone to join hands with Sata,interesting.
    I also wish to say 150 PF members defecting to UPND will not make any difference when elections come,our party,the UPND needs to reorganise itself at the top,we need new faces right at the top,we need to get rid of the tribalism ”stigma” if we are to be a force like we were when Mazoka was leader but it seems some people within don’t want change,it’s high time we reorganised as a party!

  79. 45 years ago, Kibaki and Michuki were in Cabinet and Kennedy was running
    For President. Obama was 1 year old. 45 years later, Kibaki and Michuki
    are still in cabinet and Obama is a candidate for the same seat Kennedy was
    running.

    In 45 years, Kennedy is dead, we have had Johnson, Carter,
    Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Clinton, Bush 1 and Bush 2 in USA in between as
    presidents but in Kenya the same guys in their 70’s and 80’s are still
    trying to tell Kenyans they can make development models that work?’
    Makes u think??

  80. Zambians should live with time. God has given us a youngman to lead us into the new world order but we are still following recycled politicias like Sata and RB. Very sad. Even the Post and sometimes LT is not helping the country to project progressive ideas. How do you support old tired men surely. There has been no day since the elections when the Post has never carried a story about Sata. But when you read what Sata is saying, its all crap, rubbish. The media, please do o good job of informing the nation and not taking sides. Whether HH doesnot rule this country one day, he has made his point that we must elect young leaders with ticking minds.

  82. 124. SISTER thanks for everything including your turn to insulting for this is normal to see from cowards. I will wait for that promised “I will deal with Ka Maestro later’ and all the best in it>

    It is however a nice way of running away, but 3 times the same trick which is not working! I am worried if you will ever live up to your plan.
