Former Luena Member of Parliament Charles Milupi after launching his new political party in Lusaka.

The Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) interim president, Charles Milupi has described republican President, Rupiah Banda’s call for the electorate in Luena not to vote for him as a distortion to democracy.

Mr. Milupi who recently relinquished the parliamentary seat to take up ADD presidency, said that his conduct is within the obligations of the constitution.
he said the decision he made was in the best interest of the people and his performance in that area still holds enough reputation for him to retain the seat.

Mr Milupi said that ADD is an effective opposition political party that could be able to give a new turn to national politics by according credibility to the democracy that this country has been built on.

He pointed out that his party is by far the most popular party in the LUENA at the moment and MMD is too unpopular to compete for the parliamentary seat.

The ADD president said he is building the ADD on issues and not character assassination as it has been the case with other political parties.

Mr. Milupi, however, said that he does not expect the republican president to take pride in insulting competitors.

  1. Milupi, soon you shall start insulting back becasue RB will relentlessly insult you. Already he has said you are comfused thats why you resigned as MP for Luena only to immediately re-contest it. You have caused a by-election by not dying as is the normal norm to him (RB). Wait NyamaSoya will relentlessly insult you until you lose. But the beauty is Milupi’s loss wont be MMD’s gain but the PACT.

  4. Milupi’s dominance in western province spells doom for MMD.its unfortune that he will carry the day with a landslide margin just to massage his ego.His party will be restricted to western province only like the late Agenda for Zambia and ULP.
    In Zambia politics is about personalities not issues,so Milupi should reposition himself carefully if he claims he is practicing politics of issues,he has already started hitting back

  6. Issue based campaign won’t win you support of CB and LSK shanties which have the highest Zambian population. Ask Miyanda. They love Sata in these places cause he talks about personalities and insults, and that’s these people want to hear. They have no time for issues, all they want is to be entertained, so careful Mr Milupi. This is Zambia!!

  10. ADD is here to stay and if you think its like ULP you see how (Milupi) will beat the four parties. Milupi is very clever and intelligent , the like of HH of this world but much wiser. How could HH marry with SATA????? and think SATA will allow him to lead the PACT that will never happen.

    UPND had 49 seats in 2001 but now they have 25 meaning they have lost so much support. Yes in the ST they have increased thier support. Mark my words Milupi will beat them in Luena. And all the support MMD and UPND had on the western province will die….then u say its a regional party whatv about PF and UPND? Fact is PF is a Bemba party , UPND is a tonga party. So when u say ADD is Lozi dominated we dont know but in this country there two parties well defined PF and UPND. MMD still has people from all

  11. Milupi ni ba Muna…….lets face it , we all know and its his democratic rite to form a party. Its sad that some so called Zambians will tell you ati wrong timing to who? This country is not and will subject its self to SATA, HH and RB alone or Cosmo Mumba…..we need to have choices ….i guess Prof Chirwa now is cursing…..

    So Came next week ADD will win its first seat in Parliament.

  12. In Luena its “CUU” Milupi is retaining that seat with landslide. UPND have given up and have now vowed to vote for ADD. Its not Milupi ‘s fault that the constitution allows for a bye election when as an independent member of parliament decides to join a political party.

  13. #11 i agree with you. Those who think Milupi is loosing dont know what is happening on the ground in Luena. Both RB and Kunda were being greeted with ADD party slogan. Milupi has done over 90 projects from CDF money. Instead of stealing CDF like Mabenga he put it to good use and the villagers appreciate and are willing to vote for him again

  14. Milupi has proved too insensitive, irresponsible, indecissive and a personality culty egoist. No one forced him to go independent in 2006 only to turn the corner on the highway. For his heartless ego his self induced bye-election has robbed the poor people of Luena a staggering ZK 3 billion plus meant for public development. He believes he is a demi-god that owns them as his personal property usable any time he wake-up on his left side. Akayenda mumwezi and his madness cheats him, he believes he pull anything on the people. I pray the constituency will prove him wrong this time around.

  15. You cannot be a leader if you are this heartless with the very poor majority’s plight. The people of Luena are being taken for his mop rag and he believes he has built a personality cult among them.

  16. #14, 15 Senior Citizen, If only your party MMD had adopted Milupi back in 2006 you would be smiling by now huh? To tell you the truth, this by-election was still going to be there had he stood on MMD in 2006, why? Cause the MMD is more corrupt now, than it was that time and Milupi doesn’t look like a person that can tolerate such kind of corruption. He is not a type that will sit back and watch his country go to the dogs all in the name of avoiding a by-election. He is a ‘people’ man, why do you think he won that seat as an independent after being rejected by your party? I wish the PACT could adopt him as its candidate for 2011 presidential election.

  18. # 17 Mpangula Mputyu, Quote “Wait NyamaSoya will relentlessly insult you until you lose. But the beauty is Milupi’s loss wont be MMD’s gain but the PACT.” Unquote; Milupi is winning the Luena seat with or without RB’s insults period. And don’t you think it would be a good idea for the Pact to adopt him as Presido?

  19. #18 Bemba ****, thanks for your clarification, Well If Milupi wins, I will offer him my heartfelt congrats. MMD should not be the altenative in Luena, beta the PACT. I have asked my Lozi friend who hailsnear Luena, he says Milupi is popular there same way thieving Katele Kalumba is in Chiengi. I think I can see the lament in RB;s tone, he said we (MMD) didnt force him (milupi) to quit, RB was or is there because of a senseless decision Milupi made. Aaah as long as it’s not MMD taking that seat I will be happy even Ken Ngondo the comedian taking it. I will happily laugh.

  20. @RED CARD-Smoothcriminal nice code but it’s not much effective to penetrate LT database and retrieve SENIOR CITIZEN and CAPITALIST identities. It’s just iterating through the images array of the DOM(Document Object Model). This will work on any website just on your browser without external effect.There some cool smart JS codes which can do much.

  21. It’s bad enough for Milupi to just rezign az an Independent MP and cauze an expensive bye-election, and even more horrible that he should recontest the seat on a three months old one-man party. He would have done well to join ULP, UNIP or indeed MMD. And the fact that he iz likely to win again will not change hiz Independent MP status one bit.

  22. No. 6 Loose Canon thanks for the info. Visited the site but could only read the AG’s summary. The report was released on 2 August, 2009 and GRZ is not releasing it to us the owners of the money. Looks like LPM took us Zambians on a longer ride than FTJ. Am just wondering why someone would plunder K838 billion. No wonder RB is also on rampage getting us into debt with the fong kongs. God help us.
