MMD will not have it easy – Magande

Headlines MMD will not have it easy - Magande

Former Minister of Finance & National Planning N'gandu Magande

Former Finance minister Ng’andu Magande says the ruling MMD will not have it easy in this year’s elections.

Mr. Magande says the type of leadership the MMD has continued to provide to the country will make it hard for them to bounce back into power.

He has also noted that the ruling party’s campaigns will be hard especially with the expulsion of senior members.

Mr. Magande says it is evident that the MMD’s chances of winning this year’s elections are blink.

He adds that the concerns raised by former Vice president Lupando Mwape and the criticism coming from former works and supply minister Mike Mulongoti is a sign that the Rupiah Banda administration has failed.

He says Zambians will now judge for themselves if the MMD has worked according to their expectations.

Mr. Magande said this in an interview with QFM.

  1. THEN WHO IS WINNING BECAUSE YOUR PARTY IS LIKE MIYANDAS[HP].THE OPPOSITION IS FRAGMENTED..JUST JOIN PF LIKE OTHER RECYCLED POLITICIANS HAVE DONE

  2. Magande,
    Carrying a ruling mandate in national elections is always never easy but its winnable. If the race gets easy then its so because a country is lacking a mature and functional democracy. MMD and president Banda enjoys a competitive democracy where electorates have a choice hence not asyphixiating opponents. MMD is live to the task of pitching against a congregation of rejected, failed, frustrated, unpopular, unseallable, disillusioned, job seeking disgruntled characters. If you base your narratives on the number of competitors pitching for the ballot, or how many disgruntled rejectes have congregated in an opposing party, then you are in for a shock.

  3. Build institutions other than individualized hope so that in event of a crisis, there is continuity as MMD has kept showing. Tomorrow you may not have RB, HH, Christon Tembo, Mazoka, Sata, Miyanda, Mwila, Sakwiba, Milupi, Kaunda, kapika, Samson Banda, Chipimo or your self Magande. You don’t want to find yourself incapable of surviving as a party just because the individualized figure has finally succummed to his problem of heart attack. This year’s election will be the most tenous or stressful race that will demand canvassing the entire country mopping out vote by vote and the toll may be otherwise. Building institutions other than individuals is the smartest way.

  4. Magande you also need to know that no kingdom or village has been built out of authentic anger, bitterness, envy, wickedness, lack of principles and national value. You tell us what valuable and common exists in the legion of Malimba Masheke, Sachika, Panji Kaunda, Sondashi, Inonge, Lupando, Mpombo, Nawakwi, Mulongoti, Chitala, Timothy Walamba, Kambwili, Kapata, Mumbi Phiri, GBM, Imenda, Kabimba and Sata. Do you really see substance worth winning Zambia popular vote in this matrix? Do you the only common denominator? Do they have a record to rape RB’s exponentially historic economic development record and stability achieved within 2 year tenure?

  5. The only hope is in the young generation to start a NEW POLITICAL TESTAMENT..If one was a performer 5yrs ago, it is not possible for such person to perform best today.There are many young zambians who can manage the affairs of the nation. You already belong to the old who are bent on causing perpetual poltical obstruction to the young

  6. Zambians have only come to know these of their failed lives, past leadership crisis and current passion for war trumpets they are daily singing every day as if with their families they will be migrating to the space station on the shuttle to survive any mayhem. Zambians are very smart and know what they want.

  7. No progressive national leadership can be born from those with incorrigible hatred because even God has judged and cursed them impossible to reign over a God convenant people of Zambia. There are no blessings in bitterness, hatred, envy, lies and beastiality the legion has entrenched itself in.

  8. ANOTHER FINISHED POLITICIAN OPENING HIS MOUTH OFFERING NEXT TO NOTHING ADVICE. GROW UP AND LEARN TO OFFER TAGIBLE SOLUTIONS.YOU OLD AND RECYCLED POLITICIANS ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE YOUNG PIPO. WE ARE WATCHING YOU THIS YEAR.

  9. ANOTHER FINISHED POLITICIAN OPENING HIS MOUTH TO OFFER NEXT TO NOTHING ADVICE. GROW UP AND LEARN TO OFFER TANGIBLE SOLUTIONS.THESE OLD AND RECYCLED POLITICIANS ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOUNG PIPO. WE ARE WATCHING YOU THIS YEAR.

  10. Magande tell how easy it was for your brother inlaw the late Levy(MHSRIP),for him to win the elections?The man alomost died before he was re elected .The battle for plot one is never easy.Magande you are better off selling rice than aspiring for presidence you are finished -period.

  11. 13 Misozi// I would prefer you put up points to refute Senior Citizen’s claims than insult him. Senior Citizen is saying that this year’s election will not be that easy, and he cited the challenge of going round the country to get every single vote as being costly but must invest. Mind you its not only Lusaka and Copperbelt that matter but the remote rural populace too. So political parties that claim popularity basing such on Urban crowds may have a shock on their menu. Its too early for any political party to be certain of victory and one would rather save self from Blood Pressure associated with uncertainty of some political party of choice winning this year’s elections. RB,HH, Mr.Sata and others need to wait untill the D-day.

  12. Never doubt that MMD is full of strategists and winning this election will be more to do with strategies than mere campaigns. The PF leader and his supporters ought to cool down than be cheated that the are carrying the day and ceratin of forming the next govnt.

  13. mr magande should be offering viable alternatives to the mmd rather just opening the mouth. according to the inner circles of our central committee, the mmd may have its short comings but pf or magande himself fall far short of the required alternative leadership. aren’t they ex-mmd politicians whose only claim to leadership is that their personal ambitions to lead the mmd suffered dismal failure, rather than that they disagreed with mmd policies?

  14. Friendly advice for Magande. When he joined Govt as Minister of Finance Zambians expected him to help lay down a good foundation for the economic prosperity of Zambia. It is primitive for him to destroy the foundation he helped build just because he is no longer in Govt. If he was matured and civilised professional economist, Magande should have been the Chief adviser to Dr. Musokotwane to help consolidate the economy of this country. In the US Obama is building on the foundations laid by former Republican Presidents; Obama used exising Military & Security structures to eliminate USA’s No.1 foe, Osama bin Laden. Magande’s pronouncements merely reveal that he is a verybitter & cunning person. He has no brains for a political carrier. What does his Pary offer to Zambians.

  15. Mr Magande is a big disappointment. He even has the audacity or should I say the idiocy of prophesying MMD ‘s hardships when he himslef is an epitome of failure. Why has he not released his mind from parochial mediocrity. He thinks from his narrow minded perspective, so the elections shall be – just because he says so? I would even Sata said that than Magande. What does he have to offer this country now, sitting on his laurels – filled with wishful thinking. Magande has lost his legitimacy to commentg on such matters. Leave these to Milupi and Sata – not even HH for that matter. Pride and vanity is no good, Mr Magande.

  16. @17 DS Malama, well said, it cannot be more clear than that. little wonder this country always goes one step forward and several steps backwards, and we are surprised that we have never arrived. after what has been achieved so far, now some people want the country to do another three steps backwards so that they start crawling forward in their preferred way. what do you expect when everybody just wants to be president in order to satisfy their bloated egos rather than to build our nation.

  17. :(( Zambia need people like HH & Milupi to lead this country. You guys find a way of coming together we are fed up of old people.

  18. PWALALA @ 20

    ewe pwalala funny thing is only Tonga & LOZI people advocate this HH / Milupi rubbish, Pwalala you are in the USA do you see Al Gore trying for the presidency again, no way no chance, Why principal  HH has tried twice and failed what sort of party gives a failure three chances only in Tonga Land ! No Normal Zambian will vote for the Tongas people party, till you embrace one Zambia one nation keep your cattle and opannis we shall rule you

  19. Sure PF is a haven of failed, indiscplined, expelled, frustrated and or disgrantled MMD Politicians. Wne Chiluba and Sata were at the helm of MMD, they caused plenty havoc causing right thinking politicians to simply run away. Today, MMD is a bunch of a whole new guys with plenty vigour I gues. So wen pipo tok of change, surely I fail short of getting it bcause SATA, mpombo, mulongoti, Malimba Masheke, Sachika, Panji Kaunda, Sondashi, Inonge, Lupando, Nawakwi, Chitala, Timothy Walamba, Kambwili, Kapata, Mumbi Phiri, GBM, Imenda ARE NEVER CHANGE for zambians. Rather than Political, the Economic successes are beta fo MMD to get this term as well.

  20. @23, at republican president he has failed four times (2001, 2006, 2008, 2011), at the level of pf style democracy his record is unblemished and he intends to keep it that way :-)

  21. It is really interesting that all the people living outside of Zambia always pretend to know what is best for the country… if you are all so successful in the white man’s country then put you money where your moths are and go home and fight the fight instead of being back seat drivers that have nothing good to say and seem to wish everyone that went home and getting involve bad… shame on you all.
