Patriotic Front (PF) central committee member Mathew Mulanda has defected to the MMD. Mr Mulanda announced his defection at Fatmols Lodge in Ndola yesterday.

Mr Mulanda said he had decided to leave the PF because the party did not have a working culture of prosperity and that of embracing other people like the MMD.

He said he had observed that he had failed to conform to the PF ways of doing things and his heart was with the MMD.

“I realised that my heart was still with the MMD as I had failed to remain in the PF. I decided to come back and I am back for good,” Mr Mulanda said.

He said he wanted to help the MMD on the Copperbelt to strengthen the organising of the party so that the MMD could win the 2011 elections.

Mr Mulanda said he was impressed with the development that was taking place in Zambia owing to President Rupiah Banda’s leadership.

He said if President Banda was given another five-year mandate, Zambia was sure to become a middle-income country.

Mr Mulanda said Mr Banda had incredible leadership skills and he had embraced the former Republican presidents, Kenneth Kaunda and Frederick Chiluba.

He said a leader should be like Mr Banda and work with other people and not the spirit that PF leader Michael Sata had towards other leaders like his United Party for National Development (UPND) Pact counterpart Hakainde Hichilema.

Mr Mulanda said the reason Mr Sata and the PF joined the pact was to get Mr Sata into State House by all means.

“It was even agreed that if by any mistake, Mr Hichilema takes the position of pact presidency, PF members should vote for President Banda,” he said.

Mr Mulanda alleged that the PF had acknowledged that President Banda was steering Zambia into the right direction but they just wanted Mr Sata to rule the country as well.

He said the pact had never been strong because of the PF attitude towards the PF-UPND Pact.

Mr Mulanda urged the MMD to continue ruling with confidence because the Government was running the country well.

And MMD Copperbelt chairperson Joseph Chilambwe said Mr Mulanda’s defection should make other PF members scrutinise their party.

Mr Chilambwe said the PF had recently seen a number of highly positioned members in the party leave because it was not a party that Zambians should rely on.

He said he had recently received phone calls from PF members that wanted to leave the party, saying that all those people were welcome.

Mr Chilambwe said he was happy Mr Mulanda, who was a member of Parliament for Chifubu and Bwana Mkubwa constituencies and a founding member of the party, had re-joined the MMD.

Meanwhile, Ndola MMD District chairperson, Cephas Katongo said it was time all members of the MMD that left to join the PF returned to the MMD.

Mr Katongo said he was happy that Mr Mulanda had returned to the MMD especially that he was a former Ndola MMD chairperson.

Mr Mulanda is one of the founding members of the MMD and served the party as Ndola District party chairperson from 1993 to 2007 when he voluntarily left the MMD.

He was an MP in Bwana Mkubwa and Chifubu constituencies in Ndola and served as Copperbelt minister.

  7. On ““I realised that my heart was still with the MMD as I had failed to remain in the PF. I decided to come back and I am back for good,” Mr [former PF member of the central committee Matthew] Mulanda said,” congrats bigwig Bemba man for ditching the Bemba party PF like another bemba man Dr Chileshe Mulenga who left PF a few days ago.

    At the rate the Bembas are leaving PF, the mighty UPND Group of the PF-UPND PACT will leave only a shell of Panicking Failures (PF) by 2011 when it will be time for elections.

    Clearly, PF is collapsing in the Copperbelt and Luapula provinces and with the help of Mr FJT Chiluba Mr serpentine Sata MC may likely end his political life as a very disappointed man if does not immediately tell his cadres to support HH as 2011 PACT pres. candid…

  9. #4,Drama its like you are reading my mind! This man has enjoyed and benefitted alot from the M.M.D government especially under Chiluba regime and to a lesser extent under Levy. With the coming of R.B. he swithced to P.F in an effort to to reap something out. Clearly this guy is nothing but an OPPORTUNIST!

  10. God has turned his back on Sata for being a despicable pro gays activist in Zambia. Until he confesses his sins and turn way for salvation a pestilences and locusts are eating him live. He will die a miserable man in deep sin.Love of money, power, and incorrigible hatred have all eaten him off at the flattery of the likes of fatherless pharisees like Bwalya, Mpundu, Mwewa and Kabanda.He need to be saved, and realize that he couldn’t be a pro gay and Catholic — because, that is living a lie. Soon, he will have to find help to heal from his pro homosexuality activism, and find self living a new life, as a heterosexual man — He is living under the grips of a life excusing sin.

  11. No way no how can selfless patriots burn their support on Sata’s utopia and uncultured pro Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community crusade. As a matter of fact PF is a cursed political party of doomed and bitter sore losers. It will keep thriving as a political shell on a thread of an editorial column headed by a enumerated pro gays and lesbians embattled tabloid rallied by some secular catholic pharisees from Mpika and chief Kopa.

  13. Dear Sata,

    Jesus provides a way out of all temptations that are common to man. The Homosexuality you have sold to for imaginary power you will never ever land is one of those temptations that some similar pervasive people face. There will always be the temptation to dive in, completely, becoming identified with a sinful behavior as your activism; in fact, this temptation has become a political movement — supported by many amoral desperate politicians like you and indeed some Gold digging unethical tabloids in our land, as well as other countries in this world. But Christians aren’t to be afraid of the pressure of an increasingly-prevalent world system of perversion; we are not to be yoked together and conformed to the ways of this wicked society you have turned to in complicity.

  14. Until Sata repents, God Has turned His back on him and his pro-homosexual leadership of despicable complicity of PF. And the Lord says to Sata:

    2nd Timothy 3:
    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to…

  16. Sata needs salvation than political power goose chase he is on as someone in vanity.Saints around the country must organize some prayer chains praying for deliverance of Sata’s from his pro homosexual demonic errands at the whim of the gay society in the country.

  17. Unfortunately for Mr. Sata he is his own worst enemy, and his abrasive nature is pushing many of his supporters into his enemy’s arms. As we speak he is on the verge of losing one of his key lieutenants, Given Lubinda. I wonder if the PF die hards will once again cry “good riddance”

    Who is this Mulanda? He is very unknown in Zambia & i think he is small politically. Anyway i have also ditched PF after confirming that they fully support homosexuality. I would rather support this Ruppiah kamwendomunjila banda than allow a leader who can easily sell our country to the devil!!!

  22. Mulanda who? l didnt even know he’s still alive. Good riddance he’s gone to join a gang of sangwapo thieves he was just a dead weight weighing the party down, i suppose he cant tolarate hunger anymore. Isnt it funny that even the mighty upnd rogues are happy as if he’s left join their choma club instead of going out of their confort zones and sell their terminally ill mickey mouse party/club to all corners of the nation. Look at the prostitutes that have left PF to join MMD (not upnd) so far e.g Mumbi, Dr Mulenga, Mulanda, Hamiyazee, Mofu etc they are all nobodies, time wasters and amature gamblers. I cant wait for the mighty upnd to ditch the Pact as well, they go get swallowed by mad dogs because its time they left the scene to serious national parties, they worse than HP

  23. Can see that the gimmick that MC. Sata iz pro gay and such thingz iz already yielding rezults. Just be reminded that that between now and the 2011 electionz, there will be more “revelationz”, real or imagined against the oppozition. Didn’t I hear somebody reveal that Sata iz not Zambian?

    Infact its a risk for any party to adopt him, only the blind and the vulnerable elderly would vote for him. Even if he stood on PF ticket i wouldnt waste my vote on him. Zambia isnt a circus as far as am concerned.

  30. The best that PF cadres on this blog can do is to stop being emotion but seek for ways of going into a pact with FDD who clearly support PF’s candidature of serpentine Sata MC in 2011 presidential elections.

    Otherwise, the shell of PF which will remain when all progressive Bembas ditch PF to join the mighty UPND Group and tired MMD will be terribly drop to a stand still in PF’s political history probably in 2011.

    As for UPND former member now on loan to PF, G. Lubinda, please continue to plan how you must leave PF to join the winning team in 2011.

    I also invite other PF cadres to think seriously of joining the mighty UPND Team in 2011 when it will be elections time. As for now, continue deceiving Mr PF/serpentine Sata MC that you are with him when in fact not.

    Be blest all…

  32. Its unfortunate that SATA is trying to push gay rights in zambia,this isbecause of the dark corner meetings he’s been holding with the so called useless ambassadors.One may wonder, why HH not found in these dark corner meetings ? Not even any member or secretaries from UPND.Shame,shame to hell with the abominable minds

  33. The allegation that the PF is pursuing a pro-gay agenda came from Edwin Lifwekelo, a well known nemesis of Michael Sata. I read this allegation in the Times of Zambia and found it utterly baseless because Lifwekelo gave no hard empirical evidence to back what he was saying. It was premised purely on the false inference that because Sata was meeting these European diplomats most of whose countries admittedly are not opposed to gay rights, therefore Sata must also be in favour of gay rights. The shocking thing is that bloggers I expect to be more enlightened can swallow this nonsense uncritically, line, hook , and sinker!

  34. Where is this ho.mose.xual – Sata coming from? when did Sata ever promote homosexuality in Zambia? They are getting ever so desperate that they are starting to invent lies like demon possessed chainama patients. When donors were in good books with the government no one accused RB and his dogs of being gays but now that donors have told the thieves off and are siding with Mr Sata, they’ve come up with the disgusting lie to hoodwink the villagers. In anycase gays dont need legal authorisation for them to shag, they do it peacefully in the comfort of their beds without anyone knowing its going on. As for mighty upnd cadres, leave this thread to bigger parties MMD and PF to carry on with the debate you are not in the same league as us, go exchange banter with the likes of ADP, NAREP, HP,…

  39. Ba Mulanda, what politics does he know? He was always at the Guest House wanting to see Fred for a position in MMD. He was only helped to party position by Kapapi when the vibrant Chikoti went in foreign service. If Mulanda is a viable being, why did he lose all these positions he once held? He could only come in leadership when MMD started appointing not electing officials. He never won a credible election hence the PF party by passing him for the Chifubu MP. Does anyone remember when Mulanda was MP for Chifubu or Bwana Mkubwa? What development did he take to any of the two?

    The message to Mr Mulanda is, please retire from politics. You are going nowhere sir. Your age mates like KK and Grey Zulu have retired.

  40. ………“It was even agreed that if by any mistake, Mr Hichilema takes the position of pact presidency, PF members should vote for President Banda,” he said……

    What does Mr. Mulanda mean by the phrase ‘ if by any mistake ‘ ? …..
    And also , he seems to be saying that PF voters can be made to vote for R B , if the PF central committee ,so wishes.

    …..Zed party politics at their dramatic best !

  41. NO.40. Bembas deserve to be hated for the following reasons: 1. you are the most stinking tribalist grouping in Zambia, 2. Your are the most selfish tribal grouping in Zambia. 3. You are the best certified thieves and criminals in Zambia, 4. You are the best Fogerers of qualifications in Zambia and 5. Above all you have the most foolish superiority attitude in Zambia. So what is good about you? Learn to be humble and respct other tribes. Period! Good job Mulanda. To hell with Satanist cobra

Would he allow William to work with Chiluba when Chiluba deported William for doing the same things he is doing now? Wait, Ka Chiluba kazlila. RB wil uphold LPM’s legacy when the time is right and that is the reason why KK is quiet!!!

  44. #53 hold your fire. I am not Bemba but I don’t your tribal generazation is true. Bemabs are very few but the bemba speaking grouping is huge. Is Sata bemba?? Sata is Bisa lala. Baiche please don’t start wars you can never finish. Listen and observe. The bembas are probably more assertive but that is only a hunch. What is in a hunch? Nalakunyela even when they know they are defeated but that is a surviavl startegy when you are tarpped. Just argue on factts and not tribes. Do you even know who grows the amize you are eating wambwa wee!! It is not about tribes, it is about individuals!

  45. As the name suggests, MULANDA “meaning he’s POOR”. He’s driven by politics of wanting to gain something by joining a party. Like in any Society and any organisation, some people not strong enough will wether off, but the strong will continue soldiering on. Long Live the Pact. Let’s continue matching on and stronger than ever before.

  47. #56. You are correct. You find people claiming that Bembas want to rule all the time. Which Bemba has ruled this country? Dr Kenneth Buchizya Kaunda was a Tonga from Malawi. In the Bemba language there are no “Zs”. Because tribalism has been at the core of Zambian politics KK assumed leadership because he was not from any local tribe and was seen to be neutral. However the degree of tribalism was low by comparison. This is why Mufulira was an ANC stronghold and used to call KK “Mwinafyalo”. As for FTJ he is from Luapula and the Bembas call us “Batubulu”. When the Kapwepwes realised that KK was not ruling Zambia properly KK had already entrenched himself. “Mulanda” usually means humble or meek. “Mupina” means poorand there is nothing humble about what Mulanda has done.

  48. Seo acinena ti kambeko. One mention of Given Lubinda has made me wonder why Lubinda has been so quiet of late. He is reflecting. He has seen how embarassing it has been to him associating with the likes of Sata who will say this to day the following day he say another thing totally opposing his earlier view to the amaziment of the seeming intellectuals like the Lozi Bangladesh man,Lubinda. But the gullible ones like Kambwili, Mumbi Phiri,Nsanda,etc sit smiling in foolish satisfaction. And the comprise Sata’s Shadow cabinet. Ukutumpa! Mulefwaya tukatungululwe ne fipuba mwa!
