Opposition Patriotic Front (PF) spokesperson Given Lubinda has described as rubbish the story of a purported PF shadow cabinet published in today’s Zambia Daily Mail.

Mr. Lubinda said some of the names listed in the purported secret document are questionable and that it should not be believed.

He said Mr. Sata cannot appointment Joe Kalusa to his cabinet following recent attacks the UPND copperbelt youth chairman launched on the PF.

Mr. Lubinda pointed out that the purported appointment of Kasama central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mwamba as a shadow minister in charge of gender is questionable following the incident where he battered his wife.

He said the document is an alleged ploy to destabilize the PF a matter he described as impossible.
The people purported to be in the shadow cabinet include PF secretary-general Wynter Kabimba as Vice-President, Mandevu MP Jean Kapata, who has been allocated the Ministry of Home Affairs and Willie Nsanda as Minister of Transport.

Others are prominent Lusaka businessman Geoffrey Mwamba popularly known as GBM, who has been allocated the Ministry of Gender, while Chipili PF MP Davis Mwila is tipped to be minister of Foreign Affairs.

Outspoken UPND Copperbelt youth Chairman Joe Kalusa has been positioned to be Minister of Youth and Sport.

  2. Ba Given naimwe! All you needed was to end at “it’s NOT true” …no need for you to go beyond it in even telling the reasons you personally think it would never be so. See how loose you’ve come out, even attacking GBM, your fellow brother!

  3. Bo bo. VJ is minister without portfolio in Sata’s cabinet as he is the one helping them by strengthening the resolve of the masses by feeding them with stories full of lies, garbage and rubbish. Negative psychology at work. Wonderful way VJ. This time you are playing dirty with your Master Voices (present and past).

  4. MMD is indeed one of the gig political parties in the country.I just don’t understand their panic over the 2011 elections.They are doing all the dirty tricks in the book to distabilise other parties while at the same time RB is going hoarse telling the international community that the elections will be free and fair. Elections are a process and all that is happening now will contribute to whether the elections will be credible or not.Veep seems to be the worst culprit in this dirty tricks campaign.

  6. The fact that he is trying to explain the reasons why the ppl appointed shouldnt be on the list shows he is also in the dark

    TRUE or FALSE its easy to just brush such an article aside because as they say you chaps forget easily

    And just to educate some of you all article are meant to form public opinion do you think they should stop publishing them because “it hates your feelings” hehehehe

    Just read the bloody thing and form an opinion and not a mental block just because you are PF/UPND UNIP or MMD

  7. MMD has a running stomach. These guys are doing everything possible to kill the pact. MMD’s biggest challenge is to kill the pact as revealed by William Banda. The article in the daily mail lacks substance. This only shows MMD is slowly running out ideas.

  10. “Mr. Lubinda said some of the names listed in the purported secret document are questionable and that it should not be believed”. Does he then mean some names are not questionable on the list? We’ll ask our students to write a research thesis on this.

  11. STILL THIS LEAVES US WONDERING HOW EXACTLY PF CAN IF AT ALL THEY FORM GOV’T

    WHO ARE THE CREDIBLE LEADERS IN PF POISED TO TAKE KEY CABINET POSITIONS, AND WHO ARE THE POTENTIAL PICKS FOR SERVICE CHIEFS, BOZ GOVERNOR, ATTORNEY GENERAL, DPP, IG, DC’S AND MANY MORE POSITIONS

    IT LEAVES PEOPLE WONDERING, I MEAN THE PEOPLE MENTIONED ARE STRONG SUPPORTERS OF THE COBRA, THEY ARE HIS CLOSE ALLIES AND RANK HIGH IN THE PARTY

  14. There are cracks everywhere in this PACT. Whilst Kakoma insists that the PACT can not be destroyed, Given says that the PF can not be destroyed. PF does not recognise the UPND in most of their media statements. A further example is when the Cobra nominated Misapa right at the press conferences to contest the Mporokoso seat without consulting with the UPND. Last time, Given was in agreement with FODEP over the dangers of delaying the announcement the PACT president whilst Winter thought otherwise. I sensed a rift between Winter and Given there. I believe what is keeping the PACT together is the fear of the embarasment should the PACT fail. Sort out your problems and not blame the MMD.

  15. Lubinda has shown clearly that he is in the dark, why was he even questioning his bosses would be appointees?
    If he knew it was a hoax, he would have said so but he dwelt on the details in the document implying he also know it is a legitimate document although he does not agree with some of the appointments. However Sata does not have to (will not have to) seek Given’s approval before making his wishlist.For us Zambians we can be relieved by the fact that that cabinet will end as just that, a wish list, never reality.

  18. So Mr. Lubinda is in the dark. Whatever the case is, some of the names you disagree with Mr. Lubinda are PF material. They would be expected to be in the PF cabinet should the unlikely event happen that the PF wins elections. Do you honestly think GBM who allegedly gave Mr. Sata $100,000 USD will not be given a post. Come on.
