Kasama Central Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Saviour Chishimba has officially resigned from the National Assembly effective July 27, this year and has announced the formation of a new political party called United Progressive People (UPP).

The former MP confirmed both developments in a telephone interview with ZANIS from Lusaka yesterday.

Dr. Chishimba said he resigned as MP on principle and thanked the people of people of Kasama for having accorded him an opportunity to serve them.

He urged electorates in Kasama Central constituency to make sure that they elect a credible person in the forthcoming by-election.

Dr. Chishimba said people should not vote for a political party but instead elect an individual with leadership qualities of representing their views in Parliament.

The former MP also asked for forgiveness from the people of Kasama for any wrongdoings during his tenure of office, saying it was not his intention to offend anybody.

And Dr. Chishimba said his United Progressive People’s party would be launched on August 3, in Ndola on the Copperbelt.

He said he had decided to form a political party in order to bring sanity to the political system in the country.

Dr. Chishimba said UPP has no interim president but would be headed by a party chairman.

Dr. Chishimba also revealed that his party would hold its first convention in less than three months time and that a presidential candidate for 2011 would be elected at the same function.

The former MP explained that UPP has the full support of Zambians within and outside the country.

Dr. Chishimba further said one million of the first batch of UPP manifesto, which were being printed abroad, would be distributed across the country for people to understand the visions of his party.

  1. It would be good to have one governing and one opposing side in this country. This is a big mistake. Perhaps it is time we moved from multi-part democracy. Anyways, all the best!!!

  2. Wrong move young man. Please tell the people that you are not a Doctor!! Also tell people that you have always wanted to wallow in Kapwepwe’s shadow and tried all you could to look like Kapwepwe but times do change young man. Kapwepwe is no longer a hero of this generation and very very few people of this generation would ever remember Kapwepwe. Wake up young man and good luck in your failed political career.

  6. This is a clear indication that all is not well in Zambia under the present leadership and we shall see more new parties in the near future. By the way Dr Chishimba I understand that the late Simon Kapwepwe’s party went by the same name United Progressive Party ( UPP ). Any special reason for adopting this name?

  12. I recently discovered that the majority of our MPs are under educated. check the national assembly website. Out of 150, I think only 5% of them are university graduates. Surely, how do we expect such a group of unexposed, under educated and illiterate MPs to discuss issues that will benefit the country. I think that MPs should be highly educated, well travelled and exposed and generally knowledgeable about the internal and external environments so that they know what kind of development to bring in Zambia. The current crop are limited in skills, knowledge and expoose needed for the 21st century…. My Opinion. Chishimba was one of them.

  13. It is not Chishimba’s decision to form a political Party, but he has been sponsored to spit votes by a certain political party that is affraid of the PF/UPND pact. Well, we will be there to help you chew that money together by making sure that we do every together but in the end we vote otherwise kwasila!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. The failed part of democracy in Zambia, people just wake up and dream of forming a party. What other methods apart from democracy can we use in this poor-rich nation? All these confusions are caused by our selfish leaders. Who can blame him anyway cause MMD is smiling that they have someone to split the votes in 2011. Our opposition is also fake, people like Mr SATA would have agreed to take this so called Doctor to the convention when he was thinking of contesting on PF presidency so he can lose and end his political day dreaming. Anyway, welcome Mr (Dr) Chishimba and join your friends like Cosmo et al. Hope you don’t take a Govt position like Dr Nevers (Peacefuly enjoying in Canada using tax payer’s money) Mumba.

  20. Leave the Doc.alone we have been used by Sata a Bisa for too long.Like UPND’s Tonga only political doctrine, we need a pure bemba party led by a pure bemba.Bisas are not Bemba.We lost with Kapwepwe and Sata has abused our tribe when he is not one of us.If UPND did it why can’t we did? Time is here for a Bemba presidential candidate

  25. He doesn’t scare me, after all even the provincial PF Leaders in kasama asked for his resignation, apperently the MP was not delivering. I don’t see him pulling any crowd and who ever advised him to this line just wanted to chew his money for campgains, he will not divide any votes he is being over ambitious. and # 13 you must be a tribalist yourself this is not about tribe but a one foolish chisimba.

  27. Voters use both persuasion and money on Chishimba. Voters buy him so he joins the PF/UPND pact. Voters persuade him to join the pact. The new pact shall be called PF/UPP/UPND pact. Then, Voters persuade the three leaders to go to a party pact convention, so a president amoung them can be elected. The elected leader then should stand come 2011 elections. Try it!!!

  28. Thank you Chishimba. Go and rest in peace with MMD – thieves. Use well the money you have amassed from paliament otherwise you will cry like Sondashi that you are suffering.

  30. The atitude from most of the comments here is exactly the reason why Zambians are not progressing and a nation at large. Its from such atitudes that we lost leaders like Miyanda. Whenever someone does something extraordinary or just unusual, everyone is ready to stone them to failure. Isnt it a new leader with fresh brains and a passion we have been crying for? We need to look beyond today, we need to see the bigger picture of having a new leader who might make a change. He could be what we just need. Chishimba hasnt even had a press release to put his plans and ideas on the table and yet we are ready to trash him…. I support you Chishimba, save us from the greedy leaders and their ignorant supporters. MMD, whatever Pact non$en$e and SATA….. May the lord bless your path

  31. Time has come for us bena lubemba to demand and birth what belongs to us.If Tongas declared publicly their doctrine as UPND for Tonga only which they got by kicking Bob Sichinga, Patrick Chisanga, Henry Mtonga, Sikota Wina, and Kahaye but their son HH from nowhere, what should stop our own Party led by a pure Bemba and not Bisa Sata just abusing our respected identity for nothing?

  38. Well, I suppose it’s a mark of the freedom we have in Zambia. Let them man form the party. He’s free to do so and has the right. It’s upto voters to decide whether to vote for him.

    Please put your manifesto online so we can read it. It’s also cheaper.

  39. Hello bloggers
    Well, as a Zambian, the man has every right to form a political party and there is nothing wrong with that. We desperately need young blood in Zambian and African politics as a whole. Africa needs a new beginning and this wont happen as long as the colonial minds are still holding the sceptre.

  41. # 45 UPP. …..You are not bemba going by your rantings? You may ask why I have said so…its because its not a tradintion of Bembas to just come out tribal in the manner you are doing. You want to turnish the name of bembas. What I know is that people of Luapula and nothern all call themselves Bembas and are happy about it. They dont discrimate against bisa, ushi, tabwa, chishinga, ngumbo, kabende etc…they all say the are bembas. SO PLEASE STOP THIS CRAP ….respect bembas they cant reduce themselves to that level you.

  42. Like Chisamba member of parliament Hon.Moses Muteteka has rightly nailed it on Radio Phoenix at 06:45 hours on Monday, while commenting on Bembas and Tongas.

    He was being sincere to say the pact between the UPND and the PF would not work because Bembas and Tongas could not work together. Its indeed our time to rise to the challenge and not waste our time.Bembas and Tongas cannot go anywhere together.

It does not matter where one comes from but what matters is if such persons can really deliver. Now if you say such things do u think that other provinces will be in the position to vote for such characters? or you think one can win election only with the votes of the people of Kasama? Your sentments are uncalled for and baseless!

On Mr. also called “Dr. Chishimba said UPP has no interim president but would be headed by a party chairman.… revealed that his party would hold its first convention in less than three months time and that a presidential candidate for 2011 would be elected at the same function“, all the very best for this is a better route than panicking to challenge the PF leader to become PF president since PF does not practice democracy.

    As for Mr. aka “Dr. Chishimba said people should not vote for a political party but instead elect an individual with leadership qualities of representing their views in Parliament“, this is the best way to go.

  61. What Dr Chishimba as done is not what is expected from an educated man in modern day Zambia. UPP evokes mixed feelings from those of us who lived in a period which gave birth to a one party state. While I appreciate that the man has the right to form a political party, it is imperative that those who believe in democracy consign people like Dr Chishimba to political mediocrity by not voting for him. Let the discipline of democracy show him how backward his thinking he is.

    Which indicates that Mr Chishimba S. has a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Public Health degree which is Honourary although he is must have satisfied academic research requirements to obtain it.

Chishimba was used to catching him backside and letting his wife smell his figures afterwards, that he called it work. I always want to put a firecracker up his backside to give him some spark.
    He ‘ll be lucky to get more then 50 votes. MMD would of won this, if Chishimba stayed with PF.

  72. #48, Copper Bullet, Thank you for listing MPs with their qualifications and expressing your dissatisfaction with the qualifications. However, I want to remind you that all those qualifications you have listed are higher than those for Mr. Sata, who actually wants to be President, NOT an MP. You may then wish to guide those people on this blog who support Sata for President inspite of his lack of education and inspite of his character.

  75. #80 KUMA KWEZHIYA…. Dont be cheated by UPP. This guy is not Bemba . I know that 100%. Ask any person who has lived in northern and Luapula province , the people are so welcoming …they welcome even enemies. The guy is not happy that Sata and HH have formed the pact so he wants this pact not to come to fruition hence his inspid strategy to incite the Bembas into something which is not there tradition. SHAME ON YOU UPP. Leave the Bembas alone…..they are civilised people. Just look at how ka CHILUBA was shamed in luapula. Thats the spirit of Bembas. So stop insulting Bembas you UPP-MMD thief.

  76. #34. UPP. You are a wise guy. You speak a lot of sense. Why should a tribe called Bisa or Tabwa call themselves Bemba? What is the connection? Why should some one from Luapula do Chimbuya with Ngonis? These small tribes should come out in the open, and stop eating with both hands. They have their own ceremonies every year, they don’t submit themselves to Chitimukulu, why and how can they be Bemba? Truth must be told so that the next generation is not left in the dark. The only people who are open of who they are, are those from North western; a Lunda will tell that he is Lunda, not kaonde or Luvale, and many people misunderstand that. Be proud of who you are, dont hid in other people’s tribe.

IWE CHISHIMBA IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF MONEY JUST DONATE IT TO THE OPHANIES AND POOR IN THE COUNTRY RATHER THAN WASTING IT CAMPAGNING. TO WHICH YOU KNOW 100% YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THE ELECTION. IF YOU WIN I WILL COME BACK TO ZAMBIA JUST FOR YOU.

  78. I have personally met Chishimba. I found him to be a friendly and personable guy who is quite funny, but did not come across as presidential material due to the fact that balitemwa ukunwa sana. It is his right to form a party but I personally would not vote for him but would be willing to meet up with him for a couple of pints.

  79. #99 – You must agree that the word ‘Bemba’ had different meaning depending on context. It can mean anybody who speaks chibemba like the various people of Luapula, or sometimes it means people from Northern province which includes the Lungus, Bisa, Mambwe and Namwangas. There is a similar situation in Western province where Lozi can include peoples such as Mashi, Mbunda and Nkoya. Ethninc identity is very complex and can not be stratified into a straight jacket due to the fact that it is always dynamic. It is true that in the past Bemba’s have used the numerical supremacy of Bemba speakers to dominate Zambian politics. If you are a Tonga villager in Southern province you are not aware or care whether somebody is Bemba or Lunda or Aushi, all you hear is someone speaking Bemba.

  81. To all those that are panicking about vote splitting, worry not for Northern Province votes are not a factor in the 2011 votes. The votes that are at stake are those from Copperbelt, Lusaka and the mighty Southern provinces. So, since PF enjoys great support from the Copperbelt province and a substantial majority from Lusaka provinces while the mighty UPND commands almost 80% votes from the Southern and have good enough from Lusaka provinces though just below MMD following the last presiential by-election, the UPND-PF PACT will probablyly win the 2011 or any time soon tripartite elections if president HH or any educated person will be the PACT’s presidential candidate.

  82. Central Province could be won to the PACT following the recent reckless talk by Minister Tetamashimba on the late Mwanawasa legacy especially that PF and UPND have joined hands. The UPND’s expanded business structured party will certainly enjoy more support from the Western Province where ULP slef-appointed leader without any convention elections has failed to command support for himself and his PF-ULP Alliance in 2006 elections. Northwestern Province is just about in the hands of the mighty UPND. So, all that is needed is to convince FDD’s Nawakwi and ULP’s Saki not to stand for Zambian President in any upcoming tripartite elections and we will be in real socio-economic develop.

  83. While I wish Mr Saviour Chishimba all the very best in his political career and his UPP political party, my analysis is that he may not get any better than Brig. Gen. G. Miyanda’s votes under HP in the past two presidential elections although he has claimed “… that UPP has the full support of Zambians within and outside the country“.
    What he is doing is exercising a right to aspire for anything in Zambia until maybe after 10 years of real electorate convincing and also may be to write that he attempted the Presidency of Zambia at a National election like that Zambian from the UN or so who attempted in 2001, came out at the about no. last, and left quietly todate.

THAT IS A FANTASTIC IDEA… TONGAS HAVE UPND…BEMBAS NOW HAVE UPP… LOZIS SHOULD WAKE UP AND SUPPORT SAKWIBA’S ULP… MMD FOR ALL LUNGUS, PHIRIS, AND BANDAS… NORTHWESTERN PROVINCE SHOULD START THINKING SERIOUSLY ABOUT REVIVING MUSHALA’S MOVEMENT… CENTRAL PROVINCE MAY WANT TO TEAM UP WITH LUAPULAN LUNDAS AND CENTRAL PROVINCE TO JOIN MICHAEL SATA’S PF. I THINK WE COULD END UP WITH A GREAT ZAMBIA!!!

  92. Following the CV for Mr S. Chishimba that I posted on #83, the former MP S. Chishimba will be 36 years old in 2011 and the Constitution alows him to stand for Zambian President unless the NCC change it. Anyhow, seeing that br S. Chishimba is young and linking a rumour my friend told me in South Africa some time back that Clive Chirwa (PhD,UK) was being sponsored by the former President FTJ Chiluba, it appears that these manouvres my be aimed at bringing a Zambian Presidential candidate Dr C. Chirwa whose ambitions under the MMD have been blocked. No wonder some contributor on this blog is busy comparing br Sata MC (Grade 2/6, unknown)’s issues articulation to Dr Chirwa.

  93. I am appealing to all progressive Zambians. Let’s be analytica and serious in the way we advance our wish for a young and educated president. I am not an advocate of a young and educated man/woman for president. However, I am an advocate of a highly ambitious, action and results oriented person who has plans to drive the nation to economic prosperity through relentless hard work. This person must be so influential to re-oriented the negative attitude most Zambians have towards work to a positive one. He shouldn’t have a compromised character.

This leader must be aware that foreign investors have no interest in developing this country, but Zambians themselves.

  95. Political clout is something difficult to obtain anywhere even in Zambia. How will Dr Chishimba manage, even if elections were to be held today between him and Sata, Sata would beat him hands down. So he still has a long way to get that political influence unless he is a maverick like Martin Luther, Malcom X he would have a chance but he is not!

  96. However, vast and practical experience in gvt ministerial positions is crucial. 45 years of independence Zambia does not need a job-on-training president. This will be dangerous. What I have described above has got nothing to do with age and education. If a candidate has both what I have described above, plus young and educated thats just a bonus. But if he’s old with the above qualifications, he’s very fit to be president. Otherwise don’t expect that fresh ideas from young people will automatically mean good ideas. Fresh ideas may happen to be bad ones, indeed.

  97. An idea from an old person may happen to be contemporally and fresh. There4 fitting into the industrial and technological frame-work. So, you young men who have started forming up your brief-case political parties don’t cheat yourselves that, “After all people are talking about young leaders so they will vote for me and not an old man”. Life is not as simple as that. What have you done for Zambia to deserve such a gesture? Don’t think people will be blind next time around. People are biting their fingers for their previous mistakes, and they can’t wait for 2011 to correct them.

  98. Wow! As I have always suspected the rate of I flation is tied to mushato. The more food that is produced the cheaper it is, the more diverse our diets in Zambia the less you spend on mealie meal. Here is another solution increase the tax on all alcoholic beverages by 70 percent like Nkama did early this year in Botswana. There is a direct relation between alcohol consumption and the poverty it generates in a nation. I might begin explaining the truths I have acquired about development. Stay blessed my family and to Christ be the glory.

  99. Those who did not register to vote will register to vote as they can’t make another mistake, again. Those who voted blindly will now vote with their eyes wide open. So, fellow Zambians it’s not about age and education. But, action/results oriented and high ambitions.

    Thanks for reading through my contribution.

    That has been my cry all along, if only he knew that at times God calls one to act, alot of Christians have been blessed but they let that blessing go to waste.

  108. 103. Shimwalule. If history is not taught well the coming generation will be lost. Your information is misleading. Let it be known to you that Lozi is not a tribe as you supose. Lozi is like Nyanja which is used as lingua franca. This is not the case with Cibemba. Babemba are the people who speak Cibemba and they are found in three districts of Northern province. Most tribes suffer inferiority complex that make them hold on to other people’s tribe. Look at what Richard Musonda of Botswana once wrote, “..Believe me, we Bembas in Zambia deserve what we deserve. WE have made Zmbia. All visionary leader are Bembas, Kalusha Bwalya, KK, Chiluba,” Do you think any of these people he mentioned is Bemba? No! that is how deception has grown in Zambia.

  109. These things must be made very clear so that every one is comfortable in their own skin. Bemba like any tribe in Zambia are great guys. But other people must not use it for political reasons. It is the truth that you know that will set you free. You can’t say you Tabwa and at the same time Bemba? No! The use of Bemba was made possible by the white man during the minning business in CB. Great Kings like Kazembe and his people lost their language this same time. By speaking Cibemba does not make you one. Change your names all you want, you will never be Bemba, history will judge. Bear with my mispells, am tired, had a long day. Bye all. One Zambia One Nation!

  116. My paternal grandfather was a product between a Lungu man from Chief Chitimbwa’s area in Mbala and a Tabwa woman from Chief Nsama’s area in Kaputa. My paternal grandfather married a Luunda woman from Mwata Kazembe’s area. My father, a product of this marriage, married my mother whose father was a Bemba from Kasama (from Abena Ng’andu clan) and whose mother was a Lungu from Senga Hill. What tribe would you say I belong to, dear bloggers?

    Brig. Gen. G. Miyanda has been an HP leader without being elected ever since he formed HP in 2000/1. What democrat is he then? What is the difference between him and PF leader Sata (Grade 2/6,?)?

    In fact the PF leader is a better dictator as he has joined his party into a PACT and he also had an Alliance with ULP although Mr S. Chishimba has left him now while Miyanda has never joined others and ZED party left him.

  123. Thanks #144 for your worthwhile contribution. But how would you resolve this conundrum, if both Tabwa and Lungu were both matrilineal or both patrilineal? As for #145 and # 147, you seem to be missing my point completely. My idea for posting my blog was meant to highlight the naivete and sometimes futility of pigeon-holing people into exclusivist and hermetically sealed tribal, racial, or ethnic boxes, and to emphasize the complexity of ethnic belongingness in a melting pot like modern Zambia. The illustration given is actually of a close friend of mine who posed this question to me. To make matters even more interesting, his wife’s father is Lozi and whilst her mother is Ngoni. They have three children together. My friends #145 and 147, let’s not belittle or insult each other…

    I believe that picture and other internal PF news frustrate Mr Saviour Chishimba who was hoping to probably be PF president and presidential candidate in an event that NCC placed the Degree qualification for Zambian President as president HH (MBA,UK) is the alternative to honourable Sata MC (Grade 2/6).

We would not mind having our languages also on ZNBC. Some of the great musicians of the pre-independence days sung in their native tongues i.e. Tolomeo Bwalya and Isaac Mapiki. Surely a person who speaks Lamba, Ushi, Bisa etc can understand proper Bemba without an interpreter. We have never claimed to come from the Bemba tribe although we may claim to speak Bemba. We know our place because the Great Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe called people from Luapula “batubulu”. Despite these insults people from Mufulira aka Kwa Milambo voted for Kapwepwe who won the election without campaigning. Those of you from Luapula and Central Province having names…

  133. …names like Bwalya, Musonda, Mwansa etc please return the names to the owners otherwise you will be accused of masquerading as a Bemba. The white man did not introduce Bemba on the CB. It just that a lot of people from Luapula and Northern Province came to the CB speaking a common dialect. This is how the language was introduced in schools. The language the white man introduced was Chikabanga. My heart bleeds that we have come to this stage nit-picking tribal differences despite the gallant efforts of KK to make us into one Zambia one nation. It is this mistrust among local tribes that KK exploited to rule Zambia.

What can such a people can offer when he has failed the people already and forming own parties will not change anything about him.

He is a guy who is ready to forego his MP privileges which many of our politicians can’t do. i have hope he has something new and different to offer to the Zambian community if only he stands true to his word he said at the press conference when he was resigning. let him produce his manifesto and examine it. then we will be highly qualified to oppose or support him. we are tired with the same, recycled, mediocre, unsympathetic, untruthful and power hungry politicians. manifesto first
