HH describes Kabimba as petty minded

Headlines HH describes Kabimba as petty minded

Hakainde Hichilema

QFM reports that United Party for National Development (UPND) Leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general Wynter Kabimba has a petty mind and that he will not respond to his challenge to tell the people of Zambia whether or not the UPND has agreed to the proposal made by Professor Clive Chirwa on the PF/UPND pact.

Mr. Hichilema said he would not engage himself in an argument with Mr. Kabimba as the people of Zambia will not know who is telling the truth between the two.

He wondered why Mr. Kabimba had become more interested in calling for the meeting between the PF and UPND when they never responded to the call earlier made by the UPND to quickly convene a meeting.

Mr. Hichilema said it was pointless for the two political parties to challenge each other when there are more important issues they can address.

He said he will not involve himself in any argument with Mr. Kabimba adding that the PF secretary general can continue with his arguments because he enjoyed doing so.

Mr. Hichilema has observed the need for the Patriotic Front to understand that public service is about serving the people of Zambia and not sharing jobs.

 

Mr. Hichilema has observed the need for the Patriotic Front to understand that public service is about serving the people of Zambia and not sharing jobs.

And Times of Zambia reports that PATRIOTIC Front (PF) president Michael Sata has said United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has been leading a small and tribal party, which would tumble in this year’s presidential elections because he emerged from the blues to assume his position.

Mr Sata said within the time he had been in the pact with the UPND, he had managed to find out that the UPND was actually only popular in Southern Province, which he said was proof that its leader was tribal and lacked a track record of how he ascended to the helm of the opposition party

Ironically, Mr Sata said he had built PF from the scratch after rising through the ranks to become Lusaka District governor in the UNIP era, Kabwata member of Parliament (MP) and Cabinet minister before he formed his party, which he had built while Mr Hichilema just emerged from nowhere to pronounce himself president of the UPND after scheming his way out.

Mr Sata was angered by Mr Hichilema’s performance on a QFM live phone-in programme last week where he said PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba was responsible for the death of the pact and that Mr Sata was hungry for power, hence their declaration that the PF leader was the pact’s presidential candidate.

“If UPND are not power-hungry, let them leave politics and do something else. Where in this country are they popular apart from Southern Province? UPND is a small tribal party but since they have declared that they will contest on their own, I wish them good luck,” Mr Sata said.

 

“If UPND are not power-hungry, let them leave politics and do something else. Where in this country are they popular apart from Southern Province? UPND is a small tribal party but since they have declared that they will contest on their own, I wish them good luck,” Mr Sata said.

He said Mr Hichilema had a dubious character that he used to ascend to positions of authority and this was what the PF never wanted to happen in the pact.

“I have a track record myself because I have built this party but Mr Hichilema just came from nowhere because he uses dubious means to get his way up. Ulembe bwino efyo ndekweba. Ubebe (Write what I am telling you well, tell them)

“Mr Hichilema is a hijacker, dubious and an opportunist,” Mr Sata, who is in Mporokoso for campaigns for this Thursday’s parliamentary by-election said.

He said PF could not lean on UPND because it was very popular while UPND was relying on telling the people of Zambia lies to gain popularity.

Mr Sata said he was disappointed that the two opposition parties were now attacking one another in the media instead of working together because of the behaviour of UPND and its leader.

Mr Sata said UPND should be above board instead of provoking other political players and added that the PF was aware that UPND was already working with the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD).

Meanwhile, Mr Kabimba has accused Mr Hichilema of employing tricks against Mr Sata in the loose alliance to win adoption for candidacy in the 2011 presidential elections.

Mr Kabimba said his party would not allow Mr Hichilema to use the 1996 formula that was used at the time to make him the automatic choice to be head of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

“Mr Hichilema is a hijacker, dubious and an opportunist,” Mr Sata, who is in Mporokoso for campaigns for this Thursday’s parliamentary by-election said.

Featuring on a live MOBI television programme Open Forum which also had UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma, Mr Kabimba said Mr Hichilema lost the 2006 elections terribly to the MMD and PF because of using such tricks.

Mr Kabimba accused UPND of hiding under the cover of putting together the social economic programme before electing the pact leader because it wanted Mr Hichilema to employ a formular that would make him the preferred candidate so that Mr Sata was knocked out.

He argued that the social and economic programme being agitated by UPND could not be mooted without a leader and UDA only announced Mr Hichilema as its candidate and the issue of the social and economic programme never arose.

Mr Kabimba said the pact leaders must be bold and announce the failure of the pact because of the deep divisions that had engulfed the pact lately.

He said the PF did not go into the alliance formed on June 4, 2009 after realising that it would falter in the 2011 elections but because of the need to form a majority Government.

He said there was need to bring on board all the stakeholders, including those aligned to UPND, but the party had the capacity to win the elections as a single entity.

But Mr Kakoma differed with Mr Kabimba, saying the reason for the formation of the pact was that the opposition was too weak to beat the MMD.

“This explains why we are having problems. Now I am being told that the reason why we had came together was to form a majority Government. For us we did not think that the most important thing was leadership.

“What we thought was that we were forming the pact because people wanted us to address poverty by putting up a social and economic programme,” Mr Kakoma said.

Mr Kakoma said the UPND was not prepared to rush into the sharing of positions but that fundamentals must be addressed. He said UPND was not tribal but national.

But Mr Kabimba maintained that the central cause of the divisions in the pact was the absence of a leader and not the lack of social and economic programmes.

  1. Why can’t UPND & PF stop this mind games & get down to work so that they win this year’s election. HH you’re also petty. Sell your agenda to those undecided voters.

  2. Times of Zambia, its all propaganda. MMD is really enjoying this. Its music to the ear. They is no PACT. The problem with the people of Zambia is anything from Southern province is tribal as along as it suits them. When Mazoka was popular nothing was tribal. Everyone can see that PF is tribal too as its support is mainly Bemba speaking. RB’s strong hold is eastern province, isnt that not tribal politics?
    Wake Zambians and cast off this tag of tribalism as it is only taking us donkey years backwards.

  3. Who put final nail in PF/UPND pact?

    SINCERITY is next to holiness. Could this be true in the conduct of some political parties in Zambia today?

    From the manner they treat their colleagues and the way they handle important national issues, can some parties be trusted? Being open and transparent in all what one does could earn self credibility before thinking of external perceptions.

    The spirit of confidentiality is paramount in any leadership set up, that of the Patriotic Front (PF) and United Party for National Development (UPND) inclusive.

  4. Sata, what about all the Bembas in your party? You are a worse tribalist!! All parties world over have strongholds from where a candidate comes from, if you follow the US elections, its the same there, you are also popular in Bemba land, to you anything thats not Bemba is tribal, what a shallow mind.

  5. Who still thinks the pact between the PF and UPND still exists? They have demolished the pact themselves. It’s not the ruling MMD or anyone but the mistrust between the two opposition parties and the lack of respect for each other.

    The conduct of the opposition PF towards the partner UPND and in the recent past against the MMD and President Ruphiah Banda is questionable.

    One wonders whether anything can be told to this party in confidence without them jumping to the Press or cadres for publicity.

    The habit of leaking and rushing to the media with any confidential correspondence has earned the PF a big price this time around.

  6. Now Sata a tribalist himself Says HH leads tribal party

    PATRIOTIC Front (PF) president Michael Sata has said United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has been leading a small and tribal party, which would tumble in this year’s presidential elections because he emerged from the blues to assume his position.

  9. Ama ma ma ine!!!! This is too good to be true. They have gone nuclear on each other. They are busy on each other’s throat while we continue campaigning. A snap Election wouldn’t be a bad idea..just my personal thought and not MMD’s.

  10. I was sure from the start that this would not work.The parties involved were too different! Their ideologies are far from being reconcilable.Its fine PACT members,the MMD should be given another chance.The pact is ill prepared to take this nation forward,at least not now.Lets get back for campaigns in 2016!

  11. This is a very important statement that PF will never get. PF is allergic to good governance and there is evidence to attest to this if you look at the way they have run down the councils. I like this, “Mr. Hichilema has observed the need for the Patriotic Front to understand that public service is about serving the people of Zambia and not sharing jobs.” end quote. Unfortunately PF will never understand this. Even their bloggers are stating that Mr. Sata’s time is now and Mr. Hichilema should try in 2016. They say this whilst ignoring that PF has no development policy.

    All PF knows is thuggery and deceit. PF has no development agenda for the nation. They don’t care about Zambia. They are obsessed with getting Mr. Sata to plot 1 at the expense of the Zambian economy.

  12. SATA and his Bemba tribe party are the worst polical party Zambia has ever produced. With SATA anyone who is not Bemba is tribal..He is now isulting Tongas as a “SMALL TRIBE” and does he expect a vote from?

  13. Following this statement and I quote, “Mr Hichilema is a hijacker, dubious and an opportunist,” Mr Sata, who is in Mporokoso for campaigns for this Thursday’s parliamentary by-election said.” end quote. Mr. Sata must realize that whatever he has stated about Mr. Hichilema, he is that ten fold. He is the worst leader Zambia can ever have. He talks about track record, He has the worst track record for anyone aspiring to lead the nation. PF is even embarrassed of its own shadow cabinet that they even deny it in public forgetting that the Willie Nsanda’s and GBM’s are part of PF through and through.

    Mr. Sata has no faith in his own MP’s that he is on record stating that MMD ministers are being courted PF. PF will forever remain the joke of Zambian politics.

  14. ladies and gentemen,the last nail has been hammered on the coffine of pact by mr sata.ASHIES TO ASHIES DUST TO DUST.NOW WE WILL CALL UPON THE FAMILY SPOKES PERSON MR MPOMBO TO GIVE US THE HISTORY OF THE DECEASED THERE AFTER WILL CALL THE CHIFUNDO CHOIR FROM THE MMD TO GIVE US THREE SONGS. MR HH HAS DORNATED THREE BULLS WHILE THOSE OF YOU WHO SMOKE MR SATA HAS DONATED 20tonne of balani.please chifundo choir come forwad

  15. This is a sad turn of events. The two parties must first decide on who gets what position since this seems to be the most contentious issue that has brought about distrust. Inspite of all this misunderstanding, the two parties must meet and come to an agreement. The electorate will be very upset if the PACT gets dissolved over such an issue. As a christian I will pray to GOD for the best outcome. I look forward to an intact PACT.

  16. The Chaps all just time wasters , let us not hide in this tribal no sense! Let them just tell the nation that they cannot work together….so that we move on!

  17. PF is still strong and the UPND has just been riding on its popularity! No PACT anymore go it your way Southerners

  18. Sata will divide our country with his careless talk if his not careful, why does he always talk about tribes?

  19. These guys are really playing games at the expense of time. These problems could not have been there if the pact had a leader from the word go. A pact is a headless organisation without direction. In any function organisation or alliance, you need to have a leader who will unify & provide unified direction. HH may be very good at economical & developmental theory, & Sata may be good in implementation of the same, hence they can merge great qualities & foster development. Sort out the leadership issue, you can’t continue with a headless pact, or call it quits, period!

  20. It was clear from the beginning that PF and UPND were just playing games trying to satisfy their little egos. HH was warned against sleeping with the snake (wawona manje yangambika stogger). HH and UPND have lost valuable time as a result. The only way is to take heed to VJs advice that UPND forms a PACT with MMD. PF is not going anywhere and those supporting it live to cry one day.

  21. Its unAfrican to start kicking someone who is mourning and downcast. Please lets fervently pray for Sata and HH for all their pestilences and total failure to be counted in a free democratic space. Ruling MMD and its pragramatic leader H.E President Banda has been yerning for a strong and credible opposition to offer checks and balance to the administration, alas we have a circus.

  22. yaba aba bantu i thought they had the interest of the majority Zambians at heart kanshi its something else and i beginning to loose trust

  23. How can this be propaganda when the persons in issue were quoted live..unless you didnt listen in..but all the best to MMD,PF and UPND the race is on between RB, MCS and HH…

  24. Sata is a fool he thinks he can win shame old he talks about tribe no wonder he will never win election no matter what HH IS THE BEST FROM ALL THIS OLD GUYS RB ANS SATA go at farms live this country for young generation i like the pack at first now via MMD

  25. But mama G Its true HH is well voted for in Southern Province.But Copperbelt, Lusaka etc have all sorts of Tribes who actually Vote for SATA.How many tonga’s are in UPND.Face the Truth

  26. To some extent I blame myself for being this disillusioned. How could I have sunk so low to think that an Intellectual (HH) can make a pact with a kaponya(SATA)?????????? Cant believe I sunk this low. My God.

  27. HH should not exert his energy on Kabimba, Kabimba wants popularity, his intentions are evident.He want to be know for this years election.He is harboring MP ambitions, now if HH hasnt seen thatn let him see it.
    Answering every word from a junior party official will just make HH unpopular and eventually loose popuparity.
    Let his spokesperson do that, he is too senior to answer those childish insinuations by Kabimba.Already you have seen Kabimba has no sense of shame, imagine publishing a proposal by chirwa.You mean he couldnt read Confidential.
    let HH keep quiet, he is just being used by Kabimba to further his MP ambitions.What he wants are headlines in PF held newspaper (Post).

  28. This is the nonsense of UPND and PF. Power hungry and selfish characters, you are a let down & disgraceful chaps and be rest assured that you’ll never taste the state house with such manners. If you can not agree on simple issues in the pact, who the HELL do you think you’re going to govern? Even the DULL MMD can now seem to be bright simply because the PACT is more dull than the MMD. Its just like two dogs fighting to drink from a very narrow well instead of giving each other chance, they keep fighting and at the end of the day, they die of thirst just next to the water. Mwazisebanya ba PACT zo wona and to tell you the truth, this time you’ll lose terribly may be the MMD will have 80%+ while you share the 20%- if you’re luck enough.

  29. That is Govt machinery ‘Propaganda ” at its best. The public media would give as much coverage as possible on any negative aspects to widen the division between PF & UPND and create a perception in the mind of pact supportes that it has crumbled. Then at the end of the day PF and UPND will each go it alone and MMD will retain its hold on Zambia. Readers must be careful with what is coming out of the public media. Since when did public media give such coverage on opposition activities. Divided We Fall. Those who cant cant see how the MMD has started political engineering will have themselves to blame. HH & Sata shadow boxing through the media will not yield any positive results. The strength of MMD is always dribbling through remote parts of Zambia where the opposition does not reach.

  30. No kingdom, nation, party, family or community can win the hearts of the people for a ruling mandate if all it does is thrive on insults, malice, hatred, bitterness, utopia, tribalism and inimical conspiracies against national interest. Its sad that Sata and HH are now not only in a “Catch 22” but irredemable “political cul-de-sac” stone away from the ballot. After the convention, at a stroke of a pen, Zambians in droves will going into the voting booths. We told them to quit their utopia, they instead insulted us 24/7. Forewarning is forearming as reality dawns itself to vindicate us that Peugeot na Benz havinophindurana. All the best in new dreams.

  31. Good strategy President HH. You have successfully exposed Sata’s true nature and cut him to size when it comes to seriousness and leadership qualities.Now send in the attack dogs i.e Kalusa, Chibwe and Syakalima to finish him off and match his level of thinking. Make sure they expose Sata as the worst tribalist and worst dictator Zambia has ever known. He as an impulsive leader, with no agenda, who thinks everything works around him. He surrounds himself with yes men and women who fear to challenge any of his pathetic views, a good indicator of what to expect of him. Sata is a psycopath and danger to Zambia. Anything he says against HH and RB is a true decription of himself!!!

  32. HH and Sata are getting a protest vote. they raised people’s emotions only to start talking about Tribes, manifestos, positions. Another 5 years of RB, thanks to the PACT. By the way is it just me here in Luapula or there is not much excitement about this years election, judging from the previous ones we’ve had.

  33. Just join the winnin team. Do you know how much we pay lady gaga. Yaya. Senior citizen. etc just to blog for us . Join us for more money in your pockets.

  34. Indeed Kabimba is petty but Sata is even pettier. However, not to blame Sata so much coz that’s how far his brain can take him. As for the tribal remarks, it’s unfortunate that Sata feels so intimidated by Tongas. Whatever smells Tonga just sends this i.di.ot into a frenzy. Sorry boss you will not manage to bully us in your quest for supremacy. See how mwana mulombe HH has outdone you to your own game, you are indeed too small for us and we shall not allow anyone to ride on our backs. Sorry boss, try next door.

  35. Thank God! I hope this is the end this Pact. Nyoku chinamukati Sata!
    Sata thought HH would help him get to State House. As for Kabimba the guy has no class, what company has Kabimba ever worked except the council? And that is why Kabimba is so petty and suffers from inferiority complex. He lacks exposure to the trendy world. How can PF say UPND is only popular in Southern province and yet all the bye-elections that UPND has won are outside Southern Province. In any case even if Sata was to lead the Pact he was not going to beat RB because Sata has no support in swing provinces i.e. N/western, Western, Central, Southern and Eastern. Because of Sata`s weird character people in these provinces dread him. Sata should concentrate of remodelling his character and not blame HH and the UPND.

  36. No right thinking person should waste a vote on such an arrogant person as Sata. How can we have a President who can so easily insult a whole group of people of his own country. This is Gaddafiism which has no place in modern Africa. A man accussing others of being tribalist is the one I have heard speaking his own language to anybody regardless whether they understand or not. He was the same during Chiluba calling other languages fitundu. ABASH such nonsense.

  37. We have received big money from mines for our campaigns. Next yr Chanda chimba is minister of information . $-siliya shall be veep.

  38. These reports are questionable, i contacted someone at QFM this morning who is very close to me, i I’ ll not mention his name here for his safety. I can confirm to say the reports about HH and Sata are not true, HH never sank so low to criticize Kabimba and neither did Sata say those words about HH. I don’t know what to believe now am tired, may be listening to Aljerzira is worth it after all.

  39. What a shame!!did they have any objective in forming a pact?What did they want to achieve?They just raised euphoria in us and abandoned us.It is so painful to have petty leaders like these who do not think about the suffering masses.Have they been in places where people are surviving on wild roots?Have they been in families where children cannot go to school because a parent cannot afford?Are they living in Zambia,where medical facilities are pathetic.It is high time politicians woke up to realities of life and stop pettiness.What is the essence of politics when people are sleeping on empty stomachs?Shame on you HH!Shame on you Sata.You are very selfish people who has made my vote to be a waste.I regret having registered as a voter because I had all the trust in egocentric leaders like the

  40. Am Bemba myself but who doesnt know that Zambia is Bemba tribalist himself? Am not proud of this. I pray for a day when selfish tribalist like Sata will be wiped out off the Zambian Political scene for the sake our children growing up to love each other as Citizens regardless of which Province of Zambia or tribe them hail from. God help us!

  41. Sata son of a dog. Also HH dont just keep quiet and letting that old sniper insult you. Can you hit him back as well or am read to be used to attack these swines. Sata the most traib

  42. How can UPND be tribal party now just because we have refused to accept Mr Sata as a pact President, UPND have MPS from Southern, Western and Northwestern in these provinces PF have none.If UPND is a small party has come it has grabbed 3 seats from MMD. Only dull person can not see the reality on the ground. It is good pact is no more we shall see who is more popular in the battle field.

  43. This is the problem with Zambian politicians! They all seem to be political prostitutes, who will hold hands one day and insult each other the following day. Both HH ans Sata should with immediate effect, shut the fck up so we can all start planning for this years elections and who we will vote for!

  44. Sata for sure will never be president.Its very evident that he hires and fires within the party.Lets wait for PF convention if any one will challenge him.He is too old to lead this country together with RB they must go back to their farms.Vote for HH

  45. On “Mr. Hichilema has observed the need for the Patriotic Front to understand that public service is about serving the people of Zambia and not sharing jobs” president HH and the UPND have demonstrated that they have a heart for all suffering Zambians.

    As for ““If UPND are not power-hungry, let them leave politics and do something else. Where in this country are they popular apart from Southern Province? UPND is a small tribal party but since they have declared that they will contest on their own, I wish them good luck,” Mr [PF’s serpentine MC] Sata said” this has clearly indicated that Sata MC is in politics because he is power-hungry and will not relinquish power if a mistake is made to make him Zambian President. Sata MC has also insulted UPND killing the PACT…

  46. Stop the tribal tag you are smearing Tongas that shows type of leader you want to usher to plot 1,sata will tear this country, southern province has more tribes from other province than any province
    in zambia we should be careful and put the right leader who knows all zambians as zambians not basing on tribe, inferior politics of insults, name calling has no room to this era,

  47. my main concern are people who are advocating that UPND should learn from what happened in Britain where nick clegg accepted to be vice priminister to David Cameroon
    I feel this is an insult to my intelligence, to compare sata to david cameroon is like comparing misisi compound to kabulonga or its like telling an HIV patient to take Aspirin to instead of Triomune 40 (antiviral) to cure HIV. OR should i say its like comparing sugar to sand or in a much clear context its like compairing Obama to Gadafi. Sata is undemocratic and history about his unfertilized mind on making correct decisions is just in front of his knows, all zambians know sata that he is an unpredictable mafia. For argument’s sake ,God forbid, if the pact was to go ahead sata appoints hh to be vice president 3 months…

  48. letter sata fires hh and brings in this guy with verbal diarrhoea Kabimba, that will be disaster for upnd , HH will be finished like nevers mumba , remember the zambian constitution does not provide for a running mate and hence whether there is a signed document in the presence of NGOZ and the church mother bodies, that document is not binding as far as the Constitution of zambia is concerned. So its against this background and miss trust that surround Our dear veteran Politician Sata that makes HH uncomfortable and sadly it is the view or opinion many sensible zambians have.

    I have tried to be as objective and honest as i can on this issue of the pact as possible, if HH and UPND think PF is not essential in their political success, well my advise is pack your bags and go your way…

  49. do not demonise SATA , KABIMBA OR PF and the opposite is true in respect to PF feelings of the pact. by so doing you will prevent alot of cardiac arrest ( heart attacks) from many zambians, am tired of sending aspirin 75mg,atenolol,moduretic and captopril to protect the hearts of these ailing politicians.

    The author is a PhD student and UPND advisor on PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES AND DRUG RESEARCH.

  50. At least UPND had a convertion to elect HH and every province sent delegates to elect a leader, unlike pf Sata who has never been elected. There were 868 delegates at that convertion and only 113 of them were from Southern province. HH got 532 of all the votes cast, therefore even if HH was to give out the 113 votes and thats if at all they voted for him, the other candidate would still trail behind him. Sata talks like that because for him he does not know what a convertion means in his party thats why he has failed to hold one since pf came into existance. These tribal remarks Sata keeps mentioning is the main cause of his failure to win presidential elections, because these tribes concerned have got connections and get offended.

  51. If there is no pact then PF and UPND should forget about ruling Zambia. You have missed the opportunity MMD continues then.

  52. I don’t like people who say UPND is tribal…I’m not from Southern Province myself but I love the ideals and policies of UPND. It is clear and a better road map for Zambia’s development agenda. By the way, we are all tribal…which forest do you come from if not from any tribe in Zambia you jackles, hyenas, mina masholi.

  53. This old man is pushing us too far with his tribal politics. When Sata talks of tribalism, every tribe which is not Bemba feels attacked by the words. The youths have intermarried so much, for them tribe does not matter the ways it matters for Sata. HH’s wife is from central province and you wonder how these who are close to his wife would feel. Livingstone and Mazabuka towns have population half Tonga and the other half are Lozis and other tribes, and for Sata to say Southerners are tribalists it does not only injure them only but all the connections these people have outside southern province. This really the main reason why Sat cannot win elections in Zambia because many fear his mouth which is so divisive. Mr Sata learn to think outside the box, NOT ATTACKS ON INNOCENT PEOPLE.

  54. True that PF can get it alone but with challenges and the best should have been working together with UPND. MMD should not be excited of the pact’s outcome coz they too have a LOT of work to regain life! At the end of the day, our NEEDED help comes from the good lord who uses our volts to choose leaders!!

  55. HH has shown so much maturity despite his age though you keep saying he is under 5 as he has never called PF a tribal party even though pf official language in meetings is Bemba. Even when you call HH under 5 the youths in Zambia who are the largest voters feel bad and undermined despite working hard for the betterment of the nation you still lower their status as an old person aspiring to lead them. Shame on you Sata with your mouth. We almost forgot your dirty deeds now they are even fresh in out minds. We are now reminded of the attrocities you commited in MMD when you were number 3 from Chiluba and today you come as a sheep in a wolveskin wanting to rule us. Sata you will never be our president because you do not respect other tribes.

  56. I will now go flat out to decampagn Sata because I can smell danger in the nation, the man is so divisive, I would rather have Rupiah Banda who does not look at other tribes as being inferior. Sata called North-westerners BUTTOCKS which will never be in front. He sidelined the Litunga and reduced his powers as a King of Lozis and is now calling Southerners tribalists. Sata you will see this time around.

  57. Tongaz for HH. Lozi for Milupi. Eastern for Rb. Bembaz for Sata. rest votes shared. Who will take the day you daft people

  58. Zambians woke up, these old politicians like Sata always think of tribalism. They have talked of tribalism since Zambia was born, preached tribalism to the young generation with foolish ones being indocrinated. Without Kaunda who saw it coming, Zambia would have been a divided nation. Like it or not Zambians have the same fate (bembas, lozis, tongas, ngonis, Luvales etc) that poverty, unemployment among the young are hammering right on our door fronts.

  59. The way PF and UPND are hanndling each other is very sad! Surely why cant they meet and talk behind closed doors? PF shud be honest and admit that the pact was formed so that the combined strengths of PF & UPND can beat MMD whom both PF and UPND have failed to beat because of vote-splitting! This they shud get into their heads! Accusing each other in the press is very petty! I am very annoyed with both leaders! They are takaing us Zambians for granted! We will not forgive them if they lose elections this year because of failing to talk and agree!

  60. Its shame to get this from the old man like Sata commenting on tribal lines. The truth is now known. Useless MMD is going thruogh and strong PF will remain strong as an oposition till Jesus comes. As for UPND, the future is there all what is needed is to put things together. Shame ba Sata with your tribal remarks. What pains much is to hear one uter words on tribal lines. I have stoped standing up for PF and never will i vote for this part anymore. MHSRIP.

  61. Opposition busy opposing each other instead of government in an election year – mayo tata wandi! And there are still some misguided fool.s who think these are the guys with the holy grail who will put us on the road to prosperity? I still have not read anything regarding policy from either party up till now. I guess we shall just have to wait for them to dish out cabinet positions before we find out what they have in store for the country.

  62. upnd/pf pact:((mmd \:d/.dear Zambian let us just prepare for another 5 year of RB coz our imagination pact savior will not redeem us.the pact is dead coz these guys think each one is so special than the other.each one thinks his party is special.BA SATA AND HH we are tired of u attacking each other instead of telling us what u are going to do for us.tribal thing we not feed this nation.LEARN TO APOLOGIES when u make a mistake.stop trying to be HEROES.

  63. On may wonder, tribalism is the only argument people have toward HH/UPND. MMD will use it and so will PF. Sata has loads of faults and shortcomings from corruption to violence, immature speeches to ridiculous promises. Sata changed position in the most blatant ways. Promising to free chiluba then condemning his aquitals. Calling mwanawasa a cabbage then changes to support him. Sata does not deserve the trust of any objective thinking Zambian, histroy has proved that.

  64. At last the old man has shed his skin and we can see thro what a “tribalist” and “unpredictable” leader he is. This is a man calling for democratic changes meanwhile he was not even voted by his party members. He never speaks any other language other than bemba. His party does not make any in roads in other provines except his strongholds, but he calls other parties “regional”. Zambia should not make a mistake to vote for such a psychopath. KK spent most of life educating us, uniting us and we have come so far to divided by a power hungary. UPND go alone and go well. You have a better roadmap for Zambia, I hope people can give their mandate to a young, fresh and intelligent mind like HH. Good luck UPND!!!

  65. For a long time Tongas and Lozis have been labelled tribal. I tend to differ with this. The only thing i see is that these two people are proud of who they are. They have just refused to submit to any nonsense. The eastern and northern alliance (Chimbuya) wants to look at the Tongas and Lozis as though there were lesser people. I hail from the east and dont like this nonsense. Let us deliberately allow these two groups to also rule the country. So maybe HH should merge with MMD whwrefore he will be made the national Vice president and as RB leaves HH can then take over as i dread thinking of George Kunda becoming the MMD candidate. ON aniother note, i have just realised why most people have called Winter Kabimba dull. Indeed he is dull. You cant rush to having a leader for the pact before

  66. am speechless at college i was using lozi as my tribe to talk to one of my friend then this guy a bemba was using his tribe also then he came to me and sayed you are a tribalist am telling you i felt like crying but i gave him good words…..friends who is more zambian in our country this old shame shud b ashamed of himself to utter those words i wish him well wish his tribal mind……i miss major chizyuka,friends lets go out there we decampaign the likes of Sata not arguing here lets reach the voters and masses,for the first time am voting for UPND am typical kwangwa-lozi i hate words from Sata he doesnt make me feel human

  67. THE PROBLEM IS HH WHO CAN’T HUMBLE HIMSELF TO PAVE WAY FOR SATA TO HEAD THIS PACT. ALL HE WANTS IS TO BE PRESIDENT AND NOTHING ELSE….. THE SAME BULL DOZING ANTICS HE USED IN THE LATE UDA………NO, NO, NO, NO,. THE FACT IS THAT AT THE MOMENT SATA IS MORE POPULAR THAN HH & RB COMBINED…….A FACT WHICH HH HIMSELF IS AWARE OF, SO WHY BECOME DIFFICULT JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN OPERATE A CALCULATOR BETTER. MY MESSAGE TO PF IS THAT FORGET ABOUT THESE UNDER FIVE POLITICIANS COZ THEY ARE WASTING OUR TIME……2011 NI DON’T KUBEBA…..AND PLS LEAVE KABIMBA ALONE.

  68. HH what you are saying now won’t help you and the people of Zambia. Go it alone and we see if you will make it to plot° 1. I just hope none of the two of you will cry after the elections this years. Because it is all for the Foo.shness of the two of you. Instead of settling things well but you are there hurting each other. Good luck whoeven will win the election/erections in plot°1 with his wife.

  69. You cant rush to having a leader for the pact before you harmonise your priorities as doing so will give undue power/influence to the one chosen as PACT leader. You need to be contributing realising that if you disadvantage the losers, you might be disadvantaging yourself in case you lose. We have seen how Sata used to support useless laws which turned out to haunt him as he languished in the opposition wilderness. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It is obvious that PF is trying to be the clever one by always looking for traps. They have no national agenda other than to preach tribalism, insults and all sorts of vices. What this country needs is just two parties. When Sata retires, then PF can rule with Lubinda or some other young intelligent nationalist not Fred Mmembe.

  70. Please, please can anyone tell me what they mean by change under Sata’s leadership. This time around we need meaningful, and progressive change, under people like HH, Milupi, Felix Mutati, Chituwo, Chipimo, Bert Mushala etc. These people can push for change in our nation and not these people like VJ, Sata, Rupiah Banda, Munkombe, etc who have been in politics from the first republic to date without anything tangible to show for only divisions of tribe which cannot put food on the table for a common zambia. We know they have benefited a lot from these talks.Sata and his Chiluba regime brought the privatisation policy without good policies to protect citizens from exploitation, hence the coming of Chinese to be shooting our people in mines.

  71. #cont. The Sata/Chiluba privatisation policies brought the Chinese and today just because he wants votes from us, he is busy preaching the sermon of chasing Chinese because they are bad. We say they are bad because it is your policies which brought them. Beware of this man he is a devil to say the least, they took advantage of us Zambians with his friend Chiluba and he still wants to do the same again. I really wonder what he takes us for, anyway. He was there up to the last drop of Chiluba’s rule and even planning his attrocities such as the third term, and this is the man you want for change, please forgive me, under my foot will I allow such a thing to happen. Wynter and Sata are the same. Wynter destroyed ZRP of Ben Mwila with his arrogance and careless mouth, we know him well.

  72. All those who still their hopes on the hopeless pact keep dreaming and thinking that this is propoganda. For us clever enough we knew this so called pact was not workable and are not supplied by the turn of events. Sorry guys try 2016 for now RB continues!

  73. The so-called oppositon party leaders (if they deserve to be addressed as such) are a BIG disappointment! The whole lot of you. You are all putting your selfish agendas before national agendas. Bickering over trivial issues all the time! Grow up!!!!

  74. Why didnt we hear of harmonising manifestos during UDA formation?why should UPND raise it today?am trying to wonder whats there motive.We the people requested that the PACT announces its president earlier so he is KNOWN and by all would be voters then positions in government later.There was need to have a leader and vice now.RB will just call elections in June thats why he is busy awarding contracts for roads,schools,mobile hospitals etc to win people votes.NO PACT,NO CHANGE becoz UPND/PF need each other to rule after 2011 otherwise its RB/MMD again.

  75. Ba HH naba Sata twapapata ikaleni pamo mwebana bamfumu mutulubule kufilwani fi.Both of you will be held accountable if the MMD bounces back.Irrespective of tribe let you sit down and discuss.Ba Sata disline Kabimba as requested by HH and baHH prove your selve that you are not tribal by joining hand in hand with Sata.Twapapata baHH naba Sata ikaleni pamo mwebana bamfumu

  76. Lets just vote for RB.these other two are jockers.MMD shouldnt even entertain this traitor called HH.As RB pointed out last time,we have a pact with the people.Viva RB.nichwechwechwe chabe apa.

  77. Mr Sata you really hurt us Tongas so much. Do you realise that some of us even voted for you in 2008? Do you think Southern province is made up of Tongas only? what have Tongas done to be insulted like this? do you want us to appologise for being Tonga?. Do we tongas have to hurt our Bemba brothers /sister the way you hurt Tongas?What of some of us married to non – tonga speaking peolpe? May God who created Tongas Give you MR SATA what you deserve!. Am very bitter!!

  78. #80 There was no need of harmonising manifestos because when HH became the UPND president, he found an agreement which was already done by Mazoka and other parties UNIP and FDD. It was therefore difficult for HH and his team to start re-negotiating other terms beyond what he found. Wynter should just apologise to UPND for publicising information which was classified by Chirwa as confidential. By publicising that information he breach the trust between both parties, as that document was suppose to studied by parties concerned and even be discussed and amended by concerned parties to form a common ground. Wynter is really a disappointment in the pact, he has mentality of a kaponya, no wonder pf is not going anywhere with Wynter as a trustee.

  79. 63 Gab Konie speak for yourself as an individual instead of generalising with your “They are takaing us Zambians for granted! We will not forgive them if they lose elections this year because of failing to talk and agree!“.

    As for me a Zambia, I will not support the Bemba-Kaponya tribalist of PF serpent Sata MC. This character is a danger to any society including his family and his PF. No wonder PF is likely to breakup with its members joining the mighty UPND to support HH as the 2011 best presidential candidate.

    It is really disappointing to read of Sata MC saying that UPND is only popular in Southern Province when UPND beat PF in the Kaoma by-election of Western Province just last year. UPND won by-elections in Lusaka and Northwestern provinces also…

  80. Sata is a worse tribalist and a very disorganised person. He acts on impulse and or the projects one can refer to he dd when he was minister or governor where done on impulse leaving the council with huge debts and financial crisis. This he will carry on if there is not proper economic and national governance agenda for the country. HH has seen this thats why he wants this properly outlined before he accepts position. The danger is PF do not have such and Agenda on how to develop the country. In there compaigns they Sata only talks about RB and MMD and no policies.

  81. #71 Give 5 reasons why HH should yeild to Sata? Its chaps like you who think Sata is a better leader … he was not elected by his own party, His party has won the least seats from the last elections meaning its a party on the up and not on the down unlike PF, I have given two reasons why HH shub b president.

  82. My heart bleeds when I read about what the oppositon are saying about each other. One somehow realises we have a BIG problem in the political arena.

  83. Sata is well known for his inconsistence. He supported chiluba 3rd term even when the constitution barred it. He supported slash fund where the state house ran a petty cash in billions of kwacha. where him as Minister of health begged the president to be donating ambulances in hospitals. He supported and defended the motor vehicle non belaible offence, he supported arrests of kaunda and other UNIP supporters on fake charges of black mamba and later zero option. He went to chawama compound with a group of MMD cadres now in PF with matchets and guns to assult innocent people.

  84. When Mr. SATA speaks, please respond by addressing it to him alone and not all Bembas. Mind you what he says does not represent the views of all Bembas. He is a Zambian individual who enjoys certain Constitutional rights and entitled to his OWN opinion. Let us remain level headed and calm as we debate.

  85. Tongas and other related tribes are not tribal as evidenced from the results of 1991 where they overwhelmingly voted for Chiluba who is Bemba. How can Sata of all people today call people who put them to power in 1991 where they ended up plundering our economy and even corrupting our society with bad morals of divorcing and re-marrying many women. When it was their turn to show reciprococity by voting for Mazoka, instead they just called him a tribalist. For Sata if a non-Bemba shows intentions of becoming a president of Zambia, he/she becomes a tribalist. This is really not fair guys and now we are aware of your tactics. When Inonge Mbikusita stood as presidential candidate in 2001 under agenda for Zambia, she was called a tribalist with private agendas.

  86. cont…….
    in addittion to the above is the calculated expulsion when he was secretary of MMD of prominent people like Christone Tembo, late Paul Tembo, Edith Nawakwi, Godfrey Miyanda, the Late Anderson Mazoka, to clear all challenges to presidence when he knew that chiluba will not stand.
    With the above and more on record…..can this Man be trusted as President. when he is insulting almost every one. Can other tribes other than where he comes from feel safe under him as a ruler?

  87. Sata this time has so many enermies, the 22 rebel MPS, his tribal remarks against non-Bemba tribes, his character and finally many people are now reminded of his past atrocities e.g the matchets of Chawama, the third term, the US$27 000.00 which was confiscated by the South African GRZ, denouncing youths of Zambia that they cannot be leaders because they do not have any vision for the nation e.t.c. Watch out this pace.

  88. I do not believe Sata is speaking on behalf of all bembas. This is a new dispensation we are now enjoying where tribe boarders are now swallowed in a global picture. Sata does not belong to this time. he is of old. The politics now is more mordern where the Party has to sale policies not insults and accusations to gain popularity. Sata must join leaders like mubarrak of Egypt,Tunisia, and Gadaffi of Libya where people mostly the youth are rejecting old Politicians like Mr Sata who have over stayed in Political Arena. Let him Leave chance to the young people to take the challenge.

  89. Former President Frederick Titus Jacob Chiluba is from Luapula Province of Zambia and thus not Bemba. It is not everyone who speaks Bemba who is Bemba. This clarification is just to put facts straight and right, nothing else.

  90. No.86, I hear you my dear. Indeed I wish to reinforce your prayer that God should deal with Sata and all other tribalists with the ful measure of what they deserve. It hurts to be insulted and looked down upon by some deranged people overrating themselves.

  91. MWANAWASA (MHSRIP) CURSED SATA ALREADY BEFORE HE DIED SO THIS MAN WILL NEVER BE A PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA, YOU KNOW WHEN A PERSON WHO DIED CURSES YOU YOUR DREAMS NEVER COME TRUE. This man Sata is inconsistent and many Lambas hate him so much, his mouth is so bad to an extent where he had to talk bad things about Mwanawasa after saving his life by taking him to South Africa when he had a heart attack. When Mwanawasa was no more he started saying that was just a political whistle. The man is really ungrateful, and would damage the integrity of Zambia.

  92. MAY GOD WHO CREATED TONGAS DEAL WITH SATA INDEED. THIS MAN IS A DEVIL BY CALLING OTHER TRIBES AS TRIBALISTS. gOD DEAL WITH THIS FELLOW APPROPRIATELY THIS YEAR.

  93. We cannot change the past but together we can shape the future. Let us all come together and shape the future of our nation Zambia.

  94. The opposition in Zambia is DEAD!
    viva RB
    What a shame to see adults discussing tribalism in this era when the nation has witnessed so many inter-marriages!

  95. #108, and it is a pity that this tribal talk is started by a senior citizen called SATA. Some of us our quartres of our families are made up of other tribes.

  96. PF is a tribal party..which will not even develop Zambia..you are no longer popular bamambala..Northern and Luapula Province will give MMD alot of votes…forget abt ur past glories..winter kabimba is a swine..

  97. Sorry, I meant three quartres of our family member are made up of other tribes other than your own.

  98. Political Think Tank @ 96 & 99 – Thanx for the reminder, I hate Sata because of distributing machetes in Chawama for use against those who disagreed with the 3rd term. This man is a danger to the country.
    I’d vote for RB, HH, er, in that order were the elections done today.

  99. I was an advocate of the PACT…but with these events, i will cast my vote on the party i dont like and this is MMD coz these minions have failed us.

  100. #116 I hope you live long just to change your mind …. the landscape has changed, you pipo who are very tribally inclined have to move with times.

  101. #115 you are not a ture pact member because if you were you should not mention the name of MMD and RB. If you PF vote for pf and if you UPND tnen vot upnd should the two decide to go it alone. As for me Iam true PF and hence PACT or no PACT my vote is for SATA. My mind is made up and I will never ever vote for RB

  102. This tribal idiocy and stupidity being pepetuated by HH and SATA wont take us anywhere but will just succeed in ruining this so called PACT. HH and SATA go it alone. No PACT for anyone, you have just wasted our time which we will never recover. RB, rule upto 2011.

  103. On the other hand, lets all be careful because this might just be Government propaganda!!

  104. #121 You are right this could be Gvt propaganda. There is so much anger , hate and insults directed at SATA. MMD is so scared of SATA. VIVA SATA. No matter what the amount of propaganda against SATA he has my vote. My mind is made and noone can make me change.

  105. #122, MUTANGAZYA, You may vote for Sata or even a mad dog no matter what amount of information is availlable to you, but I believe most Zambians have more common sense than you. Do you think if individuals can show such divisions reported even in “your favourite” Post newspaper, they would be able to form an orderly government able to create jobs for you. You may be desperate but it is important to have a reality check from time to time.

  106. Oh! I didn’t know that Mobi TV and QFM are also government controlled or are they? Have they also started spreading falsehoods and propaganda? Whatever the case I don’t think anything good will come out of this PACT or PF. Jesus said when it is about to rain you can tell from the clouds and signs have already started showing that these guys especially PF are not taking us anywhere, no development agenda but are busy sharing positions so what are those ministers to be going to do in those positions? HH makes sense when he speaks because he wants the PACT to spell out what they are going to do for the people. If you thing everything written by Times of Zambia or Daily Mail is propaganda that’s where we miss it pick. To balance up things read all papers if you can then make informed…

  107. #124 u sound like a shushushu….of all names why pick on Donch kubeba and decide to twist what donchi kubeba says. Am now beging to wonder who owns this LT. u ar here to read the mood of the pipo but let me warn u, u cant manipulate pipo all the time….if a powerful leader like Gadafi cant blieve that his time has come. what more rupi….menshi fye. let him do the right thing and not rigg….

  108. Let the UPND MP’s get the money, which some of them need for there campaigns. But for now we will keep to our slogan “Don’t Kubeba”. We are moving on and RB is very very confused with whats hapening in the PACT.

  109. SATA accusing HH of tribalism is like the pot calling the kettle black, or the lion calling the hyena ‘you greedy animal’. The fact is, and I have always insisted, that both Sata and HH are not fit to be president of Zambia. At the moment, I feel safer with Rupiah Banda. Who doesn’t know Sata’s tribalism? The one major reason why his party is not national is because, being a dull chap, Sata started off thinking that PF could win elections by relying on Bembaland alone. His dullness has been costly to him and he came to realise too late in his career that in Zambia, you can’t win an election by relying on your tribe alone – you have tackle the whole country. As a result, only clever chaps will ever rule Zambia, and maybe that is a good thing. HH, Sata, good riddance!!

  110. Many people were insulting Major Chizyoka (sp) whenever he commented on the pact, but guess what? The Major was right all along.

  111. These two cows (HH & Sata) are really a let down! Surely this was the only time to abash this animal called MMD, but their greedness has let us down once again. Surely how do we let MMD lead for over 20 years when all they have been doing is stealing at the expense of the masses? Its a shame indeed. PF and UPND, forget it, you will lose terribly in the coming general elections and we Zambians won’t tolerant any nosense talk of rigging by the MMD.

  112. Ego is the mutha kuffer spoiling the whole PACT idea. If only the two leaders could set their egos aside, meet and agree on who is going to lead. If only cadres from both parties had enough balls to tell their leaders off. If only either party would put all on the table, pick what’s good, throw what’s rotten and not care about which party emerges to have more better plans. If only the media would engage Sata & HH in a similar dialogue like Kakoma and Kabimba. If only there was another person the two parties could suggest to head the PACT besides HH and Sata. Ego is indeed a mutha

  113. Zambians, please research and dig deeper. PF is a party that was started by Dr. Mulenga who is still lecturing at UNZA. He wanted a person that was popular to run it and Sata came in. He (Doc) left the party becoz of Sata’s behaviour and his dictatorial attitudes. Please go and research further. “Kufwa bantu kushala abantu”. Let him not cheat us that he built the party from scratch. Him and HH hijacked good ideas.

  114. 133 Trace Phiri thanks for clearing the air of Sata MC the hijacker who hijacked PF from Dr Mulenga of UNZA but [Sata MC] is hypocritically quoted as saying ““… I have built this party but Mr Hichilema just came from nowhere because he uses dubious means to get his way up. Ulembe bwino efyo ndekweba. Ubebe… “Mr Hichilema is a hijacker, dubious and an opportunist,” Mr Sata [MC of PF claimed]“. The truth is HH was elected at a UPND convention in 2006 and is no hijacker of the UPND presidency but Sata MC is the hijacker who hijacked PF from Dr Mulenga’s idea(l)s without being elected to get to his position of unelected PF leader.

    Be blest all and vote for HH and the UPND to form GRZ Administration in the 2011 elections.
