About 141 cadres from various political parties in Mongu District of Western Province have today defected to the ruling MMD.

 

The defectors are from the Patriotic Front (PF) United Party for National Development (UPND) and ADD.

Addressing the defectors and MMD party members at Mongu airport before departure for Kaoma this morning, Vice President George Kunda said Western Province is still a strong hold for the MMD and is a party which accommodates everyone.

Mr. Kunda wondered why some media are speculating false reports that the Patriotic Front (PF) is becoming strong in the Province when people are leaving its party to join the MMD.

He said the MMD government has done a lot for the people of Zambia adding that it is the only party that is able to deliver development in the Country.

The Vice President said it is common feature in almost every District he has been that people are defecting from opposition parties to the MMD.

“MMD is very popular in western Province in particular Mongu, it makes me wonder why the PF keeps on bragging of becoming strong in the province when people are running away from them” Mr. Kunda said.

Vice President George Kunda laughing when former PF member Mr. Chinga was addressing a crowd at Mongu air port in Mongu today.

AND speaking on behalf of the defectors, Former PF member Alex Chinga said they decided to join the ruling MMD because of many developmental projects that government is undertaking in the whole province.

Mr. Chinga noted that in a short period of being in office, President Rupiah Banda has managed to build many schools, hospitals and construct roads in the entire Province.

He added that he could not continue being in the opposition PF because it is a party which believes in homosexuality.

“As for me personally, the moment I heard that Mr. Sata was promoting homosexuality, I decided to change because am a Christian and the Bible does not say so” Chinga added.

He said as a group they will ensure that they encourage those who have remained in the PF/ UPND/ ADD to join the Ruling MMD.

  1. Next destination for ‘defections’ is Mazabuka – from UPND to MMD. A bemba PF member even in western province. Ooops. Just an observation that PF is a bemba party whether we like it or not.

  2. This is all nondence you will be reading a lot of rubbish in this election year, I’m told President Banda wanda will join pf after losing the election!

  3. PF defections to MMD in western province is a big blow to madam Wina and Mmembe, Vice president hopefuld for PF

  4. I thought it was satapfred popular in west/prov.? pf yasila we ine ni HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH chabe

  5. I just wish discussions could be more intelligent than this obsession with one’s tribe. All of you PF supporters, one thing that is beginning to define you is your intollerance to those who don’t support PF. Everybody who doesn’t support you is a tribalist, so are you all coming from the same tribe? Then who is a tribalist – ourselves or the rest of the country? You PF supporters are doing your own party harm and don’t be surprised when you lose the elections – well, I think you know that by now.

  6. GEORGE How do you know they were P.F members?  Where in the photo is 140 people?  ALL LIES GEORGE.   MMD and P.F are losing this years elections.

  7. # 9 Kunta – Kinte

    you are on target….these pf chaps have just demarketed themselves. All they know is Bull – Frog Buffooning. Whom do they expect to campaign for their VERY SICK president if all they know is insulting others. They think they can win by coercing others into SATANISM….Satan will always be a loser come 2011. All works of the devil such as insults (bafikala, bafinyo.tombanyoko etc) will come to and end. God shall save us from this devil and his followers. Zambai is a christian nation (NO SATANISM…

  8. Kinte we chipondo, can’t u stop embarassing other good lozi people. Shut up or grow up my dear. Your tribe will not take anywhere but backwards. Kuomboka is auseless peace of show that is heated by many lozi’s who have been cheated ova centuries by an elit few. If you you are educated keep it to yourself but your tribalism shows tawafundwa or you are a vilager.

    • #12 THINGS – Awe, listen mune, the point I’m making is valid. You must learn the fact that not everybody will support PF. Personally I don’t care what tribe your PF supporters are, Zambia is too tribally complex in modern times to reduce it to name-calling each other tribalist as if now we are entering a tribalism beauty contest. But you PF supporters infact you have made it into a habit that anybody who doesn’t support you is a tribalist – since the last shootings in Mongu, focus has shifted to Western Province and any lozi who doesn’t support PF is a tribalist. It is PF supporters like you who are bringing PF down with your careless accusations. Be confident and concentrate on spreading the good messages about your party instead of calling everypne a tribalist – you won’t win!!

  9. Cheap campaign tactics.Lets wait for September we see for sure where those unregistered defectors are treking to.

  10. dis is just cheap propaganda.de way things r currently on a fool can defect 2 mmd.wat develop is there to tok abt?wen western provinc is de most underdevelopd.ba LT u r just wastin ur tym coz 4rom ur news i can tell dat u r pro government.viva pf

  11. 10// You have seen the T-shirts and PF-paddle, what other proof do you need?
    PF has no cards only T-Shirts or a paddle stick. If you want to defect you can just throw down the T-Shirt and if you want to rejoin you buy another T-shirt as long as it has PF or Mr.Michael’s picture.

  13. #10 Change the name

    ………pf chaps you think you can ride on everyones back !! you chaps kept pushing upnd members to accept Post/pfmembe stage managed mongu defections to accept as true and yet here you are the Giogio kunta lizard has eluded the cobra led clan of serpents into joining lizardly. there is no need for identity clarifications for you are both glidding using stomacks. ******we

  14. 11// You are right my dear. PF should look for a different candidate other than tiring the old man. I wonder why the old man does not pity himself. Madam Inonge plz advise your friend to nurture young people who still have energy serve Zambia. State House yabapita kudala baibale ko.

  15. Jonathan Goodluck has won by a landslide in Nigeria. No need for a rerun there. Good omen for RB and an good indication of what will happen here seeing both Goodluck and RB took over in similar circumstances.

  16. PF ni party yaba Bemba period. They want to teach our children their language at all costs their old man. Once their old man is in power his first step is Bemba as a national language. Over our dead bodies.

    For now Viva RB mudala watu you are a nationalist. I wish I was home to campaign door to door.

    • PLEASE STOP STEALING OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOGGING NAMES. ARE YOU SO MENTALLY BANKRUPT THAT YOU EVEN HAVE TO STEAL WHEN EVERYONE IS WATCHING!!! WHAT A LOSER!!

  17. PF PARADED CONFIRMED PROVINCIAL LEADERS FROM UPND AND MMD, GIVING THEIR NAMES & POSITIONS……..NOW WHO ARE THESE NONENTIES WHO CLAIM TO BE PF MEMBERS?……LETS JUST WAIT FOR THE POLLS……PEOPLE WILL THEN TELL WHO WAS FAKING DEFECTIONS……..BYE, BYE POLIO!!…..TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK……ABALEYA!!!!!!!!

  18. If you believe this story then you should go and have your heads checked, only a naive person would believe this. First of all that dudes speech was written for him. Secondly when did this bemba boy find himself in western province under PF. Thirdly the story says 140 members defected, looking at that picture there is definately less than 100 people at that airstrip including the VP security and bootlickers, Daily mail or is it times of zambia, try to be realistic with your stories. And have you noticed how everywhere GK goes there is always PF defections? Those days of fooling people with defection are over and i speak both to the MMD and the opposition, what matters are the votes on election day. That same Chinga will defect to PF as soon as Sata lands in mongu and get more money

  19. WANGULANU WABA AMATOLE NGE MBUSHI. WHO TOLD YOU THAT PF IS FOR BEMBA. YOU ARE A DOG. WAMBWA NUMUCHILA. NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO SPEAK BEMBA. WHEREVER YOU IF YOU MEET A ZAMBIA YOU GREET THEM IN BEMBA. EVEN RB WHEN GOES OUT OF THE COUNTRY WHEN HE MEET ZAMBIAN HE GREET THEM IN BEMBA. STUPID

  20. #26 Am Zambian but cant greet anyone in Bemba because I cant speak it. Does that make me less Zambian? Majority of the Zambian people are not Bemba speakers. Out of all the major languages in Zambia such as Lozi, Chewa and Tonga, Lunda and Luvale, Bemba is the only one not spoken by a large group of people outside the country. If you want to visit the neighbouring countries you have more chance of being understood if you speak the other major languages other than Bemba. Your point about RB speaking Bemba outside the country is interesting. Does that mean all those PF supporters who say he favours Eastern province are speaking out of their b.acksides as usual?

  21. #26 Mule I think you Bembas are now running mad. Why would anyone speak Bemba to someone just because you are outside the country. Mule just but-t off! I have never been interested in Bemba. It is just a useless street language for criminals. I use English if and when I meet fellow Zambians abroad. I dont assume that every Zambian knows Bemba because not everyone speaks Bemba even members of other ethnic groups who live on the copperbelt dont bother to speak it. Bemba is not the official language of Zambia. Whenever I meet a Motswana from Botswana or SA or a Mosotho or Pedi from Lesotho or SA and indeed a Caprivian we are able to converse in our mother tongues without much ado. Why would I give up my rich and widely spoken language for Bemba?. Mule you must have your head examined.

  22. Western Province will never be intimidated by failed government of so called mmd.No defections in western province,and it will never be,maybe to other parties not this mmd NEVER. Kufelile ki peto.

  23. #22 #22 #22 #22 PLEASE STOP STEALING OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOGGING NAMES. ARE YOU SO MENTALLY BANKRUPT THAT YOU EVEN HAVE TO STEAL WHEN EVERYONE IS WATCHING!!! WHAT A LOSER!!

  24. #29 MUGABE – You are bang on the money, man! That is the reason I say that some people have just got this inferiority complex immediately they hear the word ‘LOZI’ – instead of getting to really understand what really motivates a lozi in life, they go off accussing lozis of tribalism. I agree that some lozis may be tribalistic but that is because they are tired of being tolerant of some really uncivilised groups of people in Zambia who can’t appreciate when someone is quiet and wants to have a peace of mind…some people like making loud noises and that is how they think they can be respected. A proper lozi will never come onto a blog site like this and just start attacking another tribe from nowhere. But Lozis come on this blog everyday and find another tribe attacking them.

  25. #30 why not speak for yourself instead of the whole province? My family from W province are definitely voting for RB. There are divergent views just as there is more than one ethnic group in Western province. You are free to support any political party you desire but please dont assume that all of us from Western province share your political leanings.

  26. RED LIPPED KUNDA U HAVE KILLED AND YOU STILL TELL THE LOZIS YOU AND YOUR BOSS ARE GOOD AND THAT MANY HAVE DEFECTED TO YOUR PARTY GOOD FOR THEM BUT KEEP FOOLING YOURSELVES ITS TOO LATE FOR PEOPLE TO TRUST YOU.

  27. Micheal Sata has intentions of joining the ruling party because his chances of winning this year’s elections are very minimal.

  28. No wonder N/W will never develop. Even when it is the most undeveloped province, there are people who still have faith in mmd, shame

  29. There is No PF in western Province.Please listen Barotseland is a particuler area where analyse issues.Death one one or two by state poilce does not mean there is no MMD.The paties in Barosland is MMD and ADD in some areas.UPND is becoming number three .
