Sata promises to revist Mungomba Draft within 90 days if voted into power

Headlines Sata promises to revist Mungomba Draft within 90 days if voted into...

Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata
Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata

Opposition Patriotic Front President Michael Sata has promised to re-visit the Mun’gomba draft constitution within 90 days once voted into power.

Mr. Sata said that the country only needed a strong constitution that will protect all citizens in the country unlike the current situation where citizens are not secured.

The PF leader said that the constitution of the country should be left to provide security to civil servants whom he said are not secure as they can be kicked out of employment at any time without proper guidelines being followed.

He was speaking in Lusaka today during a public forum by the Post Newspapers’s Press Freedom Committee.

Mr. Sata said that it was unfortunate that the draft constitution failed to pass due to the selfishness of Republican Vice President George Kunda, who he said appointed himself commissioner of the National Constitution Conference in order to make money.

Mr Sata said that the office of the Republican Vice President carries too much power. Mr Sata claimed that the Vice President has too much power, enough to make the incumbent manipulate the running of the economy.

Mr Sata could not however state exactly what his party plans to do in order to restrict the respective powers once elected into office.

  1. Mr president these are the real promises we want. This one should be first then seconded by the barotseland agreement. So brothers and sisters in western province please help us to win then the barotse problem will be no more. Of course let us not forget to take care of the up coming generation by doing things right. VIVA SATA ,VIVA PF,VIVA PA BWATO

  2. Ba uze mbuya….thats the way to go,may george kunda never find peace for wasting so much money and time on the constitution.

  3. Kuda wested 280 billion just to benefit himself and RB on failed constitution.This really makes me cry for mother Zambia.280 billion in pockets of Kunda and Crazy MPS?Really Zambia is a failed state.How could vice president spent such money and then not resign?Mr sata we’re behind you.keep on hammering them on failed constitution and the money Kunda spent.U’re the only opposition talking on behalf of Zambian people.This is why we love you.Vava PF.Pabwatooooooo.we are campaigning for u Sir.

  4. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s face facts, Sata will not win. This is because in Zambia, voting on tribal lines is very rife, we are still a very triball bigoted society. The moment four Bembas out of a total of 10 presidential candidates filed their nominations for president, the Bemba cluster was split into four and whether Sata likes it or not, he will not curve out more than half of the Bemba vote. Luapula is gone already as it way while Southern and Western have their HH and Milupi respectively. North-Western will never vote Sata while the Kumawalese are sticking to the “ZimbaMala”. It will be a hang parliament but the ZimbaMalese is winning and sadly so ;-((

  5. We have plenty of money some of us, but their is no investment oppotunity, the same indians who are providing transport to ferry MMD cadres here in chipata are busy curtailing us on every big business you may think of. All praise goes to malawi who have the citizenship empowerment in their hands while us we await our installation of diginity from Cycle MATA. Heat them hard let them park and go. The market to buy products will still remain zambians, we can not fail to make maheu if we can brew chibuku, it does not need a mwenye to do it for us. MY VOTE IS PF.

  6. If we were a serious people with foresight we would not accept talks like the one Ba Sata is talking about today. How many constitution review commissions has he been part to but have failed to give us a constitution worth talking about. The only thing he will do maybe will be to increase the his powers as president. How did he expect it to pass when he did not participate in the process? This country like many African countries should start importing leaders from Europe and America to come and colonize us again. These corrupt, dictators, liars and old people that still dream of being president one day are not helping our cause. Only God will save this cursed country from these dubious liars who promise oceans only to fair to give us even streams and dams.

    • foolish man, u are telling me u can change things in yo fathers house without his grace n support? u think ba Sata alone kud hav changed yo constitution? name a minster who has worked like ba Sata worked while he was in govnmnt? these poor ministers do what the president wants in order to keep there jobs? one can hav xcellent ideas but needs support from others.foolish man

  7. BA PRESIDENT IF YOU DO THIS WITHOUT FAIL MANY VOTERS WILL BE VOTING YOU IN TO POWER.GO BWANA SATA GO AND GOOD LUCK.PLEASE DONT FORGET TO KICK OUT ILLEGAL SO CALLED INVESTERS WHO ARE COMING POURING IN ZAMBIA TO SELL TOMATOES AT SOWETO AND THOSE THAT ARE GENUINE INVESTERS SHOULD BE GIVEN A PAT ON THEIR BACK.

  8. # 5 – Lubinda-Tanga bulela, bulela wahesu mwana Numwa poho yabo Kuku, sicaba sa ku utwa. This serpent has been around the corridors of power since day 1 on October 24 1964, he is part part of the problem and not the solution. The sooner he packs 6 feet like his wayward stinking nemesis Kafupi the better of the country. He truly is a menace to society and needs to be destroyed and not ushered into power. Kono Kunda niyena ki namalyanga, ncwa ya lifasi yemu swalezi fa kakoshi ite imu bitule namunungu yani! For justifying the Mongu killings I will never ever forgive him!

  9. Mr Sata, you can say all that you want, but your deeds speak louder. Who was the architect of third term? Yourself. Who hounded opponents out of MMD in 2001? Yourself. Did you hold a single ballot at your “national convention”? No. These are just recent examples, the Post archives are full of the truth about you. Techo mwatinine umwaiche Chanda Chimba III bamudala, but the cat was already out of the bag. And now a known dictator is offering Zambians a constitution? We are not fools Mr Sata, your chance to get away with lies was in 2008 and it will never come again.

  10. Good evening

    It is very true that civil servants have no real job security in Zambia, compared to other countries. This is the kind of restructuring that Gray Soko was talking about in the previous thread (What if Zambia…)

    In their 20 years of solitary rule, MMD has failed to establish a consensus with the civil society in order to hammer out a new constitution – only endless sittings and national conventions. Well, if given a chance, maybe PF can do it. That’s what democracy is all about.

  11. #6, “BA PRESIDENT IF YOU DO THIS WITHOUT FAIL MANY VOTERS WILL BE VOTING YOU IN TO POWER”. That is correct, first give us the Mungomba Constitution without fail and we shall vote for you, NOT BEFORE, you are too much of a slithery liar to trust. Njoka ina nyenga Adam na Eva.

  12. UBWANA SATA YIU ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH AND WE ARE VOTING YOU IN AS OUR 5TH PRESIDENT ON THE 20TH SEPTEMBER.ALSO YOU MUST KICK OUT THE ILLEGAL SCUD MISSILES I MEAN THE ILLEGAL INDIANS THAT ARE SCATTERED ALL OVER ZZAMBIA ESPECIALLY IN LUSAKA.WE HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH GENUINE INDIANS WHO ARE OF ZAMBIAN ORIGION AND THE ONE THAT ARE RESIDENTS WHO SETLLED BEFORE INDIPENDENCE.MOST OF THESE SCUD MISSILES HAVE OBTAINED ZAMBIAN CITIZENSHIPS DUBVIOUSLY BY PAYING 10 TO 15000US DOLLARS EACH.SCUD MISSILE ARE OFTEN IREFFERED TO ILLEAGAL ASIANS BY THE ORIGINAL ZAMBIANS IF ASIAN ORIGIONS AND THE SAME GOES TO THE CHINESE SO CALLED FAKE INVESTERS WHO ARE SELLING CHICKENS AND VEGATABLES AT SOWETO MARKET AS WELL AS ON TUSEDAY MARKET AT THE CHURCH WHICH IS JUST AFTER KABWATA POLICE.

    • #10 DONT BE CHEATED BY THIS OLD MAN, WHAT IS HE GOING 2 GIVE ZAMBIANS THAT HE DID NOT GIVE WHEN HE WAS MINISTER WITHOUT PORTIFOLIO? THIS OLD MAN YOU ARE SUPPORTING HAS SERVED IN SO MANY PORTIFOLIOS AND YOU THINK BY PUTTING HIM INTO POWER HE IS GOING TO DO THE SAME, HE IS JUST CHEATING YOU REMEMBER THIS MAN NEEDS NOT TO BE THE OVERALL BOSS HE NEEDS SOMEONE 2 SUPERVISE HIM HE DOESNT THINK PROPERLY. GO AHEAD WITH THE SO CALLED CHANGE YOU WILL SEE WHAT IT MEANS

  13. Fake promises. You had many opportunities to come up with a good constitution. We do not want to waste more money on the constitution you want to revist. The main reason of revisting the constitution is to remove the Declaration of Zambia as a christian nation so that you introduce laws to protect the rights of ‘……………..’ who are funding your party. SHAME

  14. Fellow citizens, you will not know what is there if you don’t effect change. Let’s not lose hope, vote for change and see what happens. Leaders are put in place by the electorate and only the electorate has powers of taking them out. If you can read english, you have some education to enable you understand what others are talking about. This coupled with your five human senses you have ability to co-ordinate them and deterministically make wise decisions on the way forward with our leaders. If a leader fails to do what is right, remove them through the ballot and if they insist to hang on to power, remove them by force without guns. Other countries have done it.

    • jeojadeestor on May 28, 2011 what do i do i have a different remote because my dish one broke because i was mad and my life is literally over now i am punished anyway how do i set up a toshiba remote thats set up for my tv and has available places to program a satalite

  15. that filipino woman(priscilla isaacs) at ECZ is very arrogant, her reponses to given lubinda’s well meaning advice on printing of ballot papers is so sarcastic.

    • She was too personal and un professional and that is what Dan Kalale in trouble as well.We also have the same problem at DEC.

  16. I’m quite suprised people are quick to take your assertions as Gospel truth. 90 days is way too short to achieve all you are proclaiming. Its simply impossible

    • You need to have experienced abit of Management for you to understand Sata’s 90 days. Rupiah Banda has lamentably failed because he did not have any plans to effect anything in his first 90 days. This happens not just in politics but moreso in management.

  17. Look at the face of the serpent in the picture. Is this the kind of president that you surely want to have you Zambians. All those supporting Sata for president have heavily rusted brains and eyes and need immediate surgery to correct their thinking, reasoning and sight. I dont mind even if you feel hurt by my statement because the truth hurts anyway.

  18. Honestly PF need to retool their message than rehash this 90 days blah blah ..that is so 2006/8. It seems they don’t have a fresh message. Things have changed and RB has delivered in terms of continuing with LPM programs.

    PF needs to find a new message in the tanks, and please don’t even go to the more money in your pocket. Otherwise RB is going for landslide. This hate for George Kunda wont help PF , since when did the powers of a Vice President become an issue in Zambia. VP powers have been the same since MMD started ruling Zambia with Mr Sata in that party.

    Old man try something new please.

  19. As if if elected he will bother with little niceties such as the rule of law and constitutionality! Surely not every single problem can be solved in 90 days. I think he can only count up to 90 that is why he seems to be autistically obsessed with the number. Job creation – 90 days, Barotse Agreement- 90 days, construction of schools and roads – 90 days yaba! All these different projects are somehow to be completed in 90 days and there are seemingly intelligent people who believe this demagogue?

    • You are the only dumb person who does not know how to Plan. In management circles, if you do not have a plan and outline a vision within 90 days of your taking on a new assignment, chances are that you will struggle to find your feet. Please let me not take it that you need Sata to come with Grade 1 english before you realise what he talks about.

  20. Wrong, its the president who has too much powers NOT the vice president. One wonders why Mr Sata would be telling such a blatant lie without being challenged by the docile audience.

  21. It takes legal think tanks to work on such documents baba, you will never (SATA) cease to amaze me with your illogical pronouncements

  22. I am proud 2 be a zambian i think thez a purpose y God wanted me 2 be zambian. my fellow zambians let’s guard our peace jealously and vote 4 a leader who will propel this country forward. God will neva disappoint us he will surely give us the one he has seen capable of respecting the rights of the citizens. MY PRAYER IS 4 PEACE 2 PREVAIL DURING THIS TRYING MOMENT. I LOVE U ALL FELLOW CITIZENSng the rights of the citizens. MY PRAYER IS 4 PEACE 2 PREVAIL DURING THIS TRYING MOMENT. I LOVE U ALL FELLOW CITIZENS

  23. That 90 days thing rings hollow in our ears, it no longer resonates with the population, please try something fresh Mr Sata bamudala, tulefwaya pa 20 September muka kwateko nangu tu 45,000 votes twakupwishako insoni shikulu. But that is what happens when you have made yourself the only thinker in your party, everybody looks to you for ideas and nobody helps you.

  24. This man has no consideration,no wonder he equates everythin to 90 days and some foolish zambians believe in this crap,am begining to question his sanity.

  25. @ DR mulenga,you must be a witch doctor not a PHD holder or an MD,what has rbish delivered? the removal of the anti corruption clause? the turning of state house into a house of dubious tenders? or the enrichment of his sons? If at all you have relatives in Zambia like most of us do,you wouldn’t be saying what you are saying ba Mulenga.Much as we may differ in political affiliations,we must be realistic in our analysis,if rbish had been currying out the projects, he is now carrying out, from day one of his taking office, i would side with you,but,what are we seeing?anytime there is an election rbish delivers the so called development,are we only going to see his development when there is an election?

    • Zamcab, you cannot deliver a project today just because there are elections around the corner. These projects were planned for and started during Levy’s era. As for RB and his sons, there is no proof. Mr Mpombo just failed to even turn up in court to lay his evidence. Surely, what kind of country are we going to have where hearsay becomes the basis for condemning people? It will never end, and even if Mr Sata became President, it will not be long before malicious rumours start circulating about his family! 

  26. I cannot begin to make sense of this man’s message. After having been number 3 in government for years, he should be able to know that our vice president’s office is largely ceremonial. Crucially he should know that the executive does not make laws, so if he wants to revisit the constitution it can only be done through parliament. The question therefore is – if he became president, how many MPS does his party expect to get in the house in order to implement all these changes? PF does not seem to know consensus building, so all the opposition parties would gang up against them on all legislative initiatives

  27. Journalists, when you are reporting news do you take particular interest in carrying out what is called research? If you read the Mung’omba draft constitution, you will be able to know what the Mung’omba recommended as powers and limits of the office bearers such as that of the republican president and vice president. Dont be lazy by relying on hand out speeches. It is your job to dig into those documents and tie up news coherently and professionally. 

  28. What has happened to people’s memories? Sata was part and parcel of the current constitution. I remember us demonstrating at UNZA in the 90s when Chiluba signed the constitution. I guess Chiluba could have even used Mr. Sata’s pen to sign the current constitution. What has changed now for him to revisit it? Please spare us Mr. Sata.

  29. Difficult to understand this man. The draft constitution adopted ALL of Mungomba’s except a few issues that were to be referred to the citizens, so why did his party boycott?
    Civil servants in Zambia cannot lose their jobs anyhow, that is a lie. You cannot even fire a classified daily employ in Zambia without due process. I am so sad that Mr Sata is using UNTRUTHS to get to State house, it’s a shame.

  30. SATA IS HUMAN AND HUMAN IS TO ERROR..BUT OF ALL PROMISES SATA HAS NEVER BEEN PRESIDENT TO BE PROVEN OF BEING A LIAR,LIKE RB PROMISED NOT TO SIGN ON THE DOCUMENT TO INCREASE THE SALARIES OF CONSTITUTION POST,HARDLY 2 WEEKS IN POWER WHAT DID HE DO? SO NOW WE KNOW THE LAIR… HOW CAN CHINEESE PEOPLE BE KILLING MINERS AND GO FREE THE PRESIDENT IS WATCHING? SATA,WHEN JUST GBM BATTERED HIS WIFE HE WAS DISPLINED WITHOUT FEAR OF HIM WITHDRAWING SUPPORT,SO SATA HAS SHOWN LEADERSHIP QUALITIES WHICH SOME OF US WE WILL GIVE HIM A VOTE ON 20TH SEPT..2011

  31. 90 days is ok for men of actions to initiate programmes. Better than RB’s last 90 days 11th hour projects. That’s the difference between PF and MMD. PF will start working from day 1 MMD waits for campaign period

  32. The seriously need take this guy for a mental examination…. 
    Honesty i do not think his memory is upto date… or he  his seriously smoking something very potent

  33. chilanda landa baumutwile  umulomo akasuba or chinyenge nyenge bamuputwile ubwamba aka suba. SATA just shut up leka ukubosa bosa.

    ISN’T THIS THE SAME THIRD TERM THUG WHO ALMOST RAPED OUR CONSTITTUITION WITH FTJ  AND MASTER MIND AND CREATOR OF SCORPION KADOBI AND THE SHE GOAT ESTHER NAKAWALA.

    ISN’T  THIS THE ENGINEER OF BLACK MAMBA
    ISN’T  THIS THE SAME THUG WHO CHASED 21 MPS OUT OD MMD.
    SATA F00L YOUR PF GOONS NOT US INTELECTUALLS

  34. My advise to o who like calling SATA a dictator to be vry greatful.ths man has lost 2 elections in comprosing circumstances n yt at no time did he alow the situation of zimbabwe or kenya to be seen in zed even wen CBU students demonstratd 4 a re run in 06.

    • dltuua on January 21, 2011 Zumbarose: the lavalava’s u can get from the islands or order them online but u can also go to the fabric store and get any tropical floral print fabric.

  35. We need a good constitution. We will get it either by ballot or bullet. These old people have fooled us for a long time. History had it that countries that have gone to war before have a good system, and that is the constitution. Very soon, South Sudan will be better than us coz they will ensure they have a good system( constitution). Even us we should be prepared to go for war if these politicians fail to give us a people driven constitution in peaceful manner. We can’t talk about MMD coz they failed to do that. We have to look for alternatives through voting either PF or UPND.

  36. Sata is a cheap liar! How many things is he promising ignorant electorates to do in 90 days. Zambians be warned, never vote such liars in to office, you will only have yourselves to blame. Even Chiluba was much better than Sata because he never promised lies. What can Sata tell us about the constitution when not only did he fail to take part in the just failed review process but fired all PF MPs who put the Nation above politics and went ahead to draft a new constitution. It is better not to have a president at all than have a serpent of a liar in State House. People remember it was the Cobra that deceived Eve to lie to Adam about the fruit. The Cobra has not changed to date.

  37. Dont worry, cry no more, he is the incoming presidento and all of you haters will have no where to run to. As for UPND just prepare to remain in the oppeosition in perpetuity. When you stop using your tribe to think that’s when you shall be considered to form govt. 

  38. It just buffles me how dull some Zambians can be to take whatever this old crook tells them to be gospel truth. Our country will continue walloping in povety as long as we have a majority of shallow minded people. Cry the beloved country!

  39. A politician at heart indeed. He know what to say in order to get what he wants. No wonder the man is so popular among the less educated and the ignorant.

  40. Mr Sata also probably failed to mention that there will be legalised polygamy as well as Nakawala within 90 days.

  41. I could have believed if it came from another mouth other than for Sata. What constitution can this lier give zambians when he fails to be consistent on the same issue, today he can say we need one tomorrow you will hear it is not necessary. Zambians lets us remove dullness from our minds, Sata is the same guy with his members of their Chiluba regime who amended the current constitution just to favour their interests, what new thing can he produce now only politicking and manipulation. Zambians what is important for now is development with a leader who is consistent like HH, not these liers like Sata and RB who have reduced us to poverty so that we can be beggers in our own country, zambia. Viva HH

  42. These political manipulators just want to lie to get to state house, but not to develop the nation. Political experts are so unpredictable, look at Museven here in Uganda, he got to power by manipulating people with a message to say, he wanted to reduce the term of presidency to just 8 years maximum, but actually he is the one who has stayed longer over 30 years, and has now become a dictator where he does not allow anyone to challange him. He treats Ugandans as if he owns them. Any leader who treats his own people as if he owns them like Mugabe, Ghaddafi, Museven, Sata etc are dictators. The same Sata in 2001 over the third term issue told us that a constitution is just a paper which you can choose either to follow or to ignore, and you can believe such person can be genuine, no.

  43. We Zambians can talk fellow bloggers.Action? Now whether the boat sails or it sinks,,,,Changein form of wind has come like a tornado.All surpressors shall be blown away.Banyandule Babweza ziko pansi .Bakokolochi.Sibalipilamagesi.

  44. Loud and Clear, please political experts like Sata and Banda, we do not want you this time, keep your political professionalism in your houses, or better still be advisors to HH as he does the the fixing of the economy. Sata and Banda, you have manipulated us a lot with your political experience since independence, and it is now time for us to get one who is not a political expert, but an economic manager in the name of HH. The young man is full of success, mwanawasa use to consult him and even Banda consulted him immediately when he won the 2008 pools over the economy. Why going round when we have the best around us in the name of HH. Viva HH.

  45. Zambian plese, for how long are we going to allow these manipulators to be cheating us. In 2008 Banda lied to us that he will just finish Levy’s 3 year term, and Magande would stand in 2011 on the same MMD ticket. We voted for him on that message, but as soon as he won the election, he made false allegations on the innocent magande over the zambia airways, whose report to date after close to 4 years we have not seen. He fired Magande just for exercising his right to stand as president in MMD. Magande was not allowed to be president even if many zambians preferred him, just because he will not allow corruption, and is too clean. Please, zambians I still ask how long are we going to allow these political experts to continue manipulating us, taking politics as their livelihood?.SHAME.

  46. Yes Mr President, bauze, 22011 Sata for President, what makes feel that my President wont tell the Mungomba Constitutions, he is man of the words.

  47. These two Sata and Banda are one and the same. They were together in UNIP, both part of MMD and now one is the leader of the main MMD while the other leads the branch of MMD, what do you expect ffrom such people who have taken politics as their only survival, and manipulating us is how they get by. We cannot allow people who just survive on taxpayers to keep inflict poverty in our lives while them live like kings with their children. They should also fend they way others manage to fend for themselves before joining politics. Political office should be a service and not a means of survival the way our friends who cannot manage to work hard have taken it.

  48. Sata and Banda cannot develop the economy no matter what, hence this year we need a leader who can develop our economy for all zambians to benefit even if you are not a politicians. It is enough we have allowed these political experts who earn a living in politics to take care of our affairs, no wonder they can change party camps like dresses. HH is full of success and can manage the economy well.

  49. #34 Octopus, Paul Bwalya: I hope you don’t mind a scriptural flavour: “The thief comes with the sole intention of stealing and killing and destroying…” John 10:10. Zambians beware!

  50. The Octopus is dull like his masters. Any intelligent mind doesnt find anything sensible in his posting. His argument lacks focus but it is much louder like an empty tin. 

  51. #31 ‘civil servants can not lose their jobs anyhow’ you obviously are very distant to current civil service management where professionalism has been thrown to the wind through appointments of party cadres to permanent secretary positions. Visit any ministry and experience the fear among civil servants and find “permanent secretaries” deputizing ministers in day to day running of the ministry. Its only on paper that civil servants are safe in their jobs. That safety disappeared with Aldridge Adamson!

  52. Sata will only change the constitution so that he becomes life president.isnt he the same man who was championing the third term for the late Chiluba,am sure for himself he would want to do more(being life president).

  53. why are you guys concentrating so much on the negative things about Sata, you mean there is not even one thing positive about him? it just shows how you guys are scared about him

  54. Ba Sata can do it If Dr Banda the president can come up with all these project within three months that shows that even you # 14 given that chance can do it.it just requires proper management and delegating duties to ministers and down to civil servants,so it is possible.Some of these issue which support them for sake of our beloved country Zambia.

  55. PF cadres behave like little children…when you warn them not to play with electricity or a dangerous snake they ignore you and want to experiment. We are warning you about Sata because we know he is a danger to Zambian democracy. It’s unfortunate that Mmembe and his Post Newspaper have formed an unholy alliance with a known devil just fix RB over his failed business deals. Mmembe and his consortium of RB haters(Mpombo, Masebo, Chitala, Mulongoti etc) have ganged up to fix their common enemy and ignore the country’s fragile democracy just to achieve their personal agenda. They don’t care whether they drag the country down in order to achieve their greedy ambitions.

  56. This old man is a combination of comedy, deception and lies and he is overdoing it. Even his supporters now know him and they are deserting him in droves. It is said that Mr Sata’s supporters look down in shame whenever he opens his mouth in public. The only supporters remaining are the empty heads on LT but even they have now changed their blogging names in shame, e.g. kalos2121 and msana wanzili have disappeared after the shame of the parentage judgement.

  57. Breaking News: Governt Printer Captain Simbeye Poisoed is it shu shu shu work to incapacitate Government Printers not to print ballots

  58. MMD chaps hate the truth….. what is difficulty in re-visiting the draft within 90…. hatred for Sata is not right and the call for change to is inevitable let’s not allow mother Zambia to fall in the same category like other African countries with muyaya (Long live) same parties or Presidents….. we might not like Sata but don’t deny change based on hatred you are symptoms of uprising and ciaos in Africa…. Viva PF

  59. Sata consulted a witch doctor for medicine to win elections. The witch doctor told him that he will help him win but he (Sata) will die 90 days after winning. That is the reason why Sata says he will do everything within 90 days.

  60. Katie Goode – I like and appreciate your postings. Sata was the architect of the current constitution which he now claims he’ll change within 90 days. I’ll only beleive him if he says he’ll be president for only 90 days if elected.

  61. ONLY fools at the POST will buy this lie. Sata has been in power for over 50 years and never talked about the constitution protecting pipo. the 1996 mwanakatwe constitution was KILLED by Sata. Sata propelled the third term for chiluba. Sata is not normal becuase he forgets easily. In fact i see Sata changing the constitution so that there is ONE partry state. Follow and believe Sata at your own peril.

  62. By ballot or by bullet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Pabwatooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. Here we go again with this 90day nonsense! Surely Cycle Mata had all the time to help curtail presidential powers when he was FJTs right hand man for 10yrs (Mwanakatwe review). Not sure where he got this 90day magic stick from but I’ve got a feeling the old man is still smoking weed.

  64. Ba Lusaka times i have come to realise you take your longest time to finally allocate a number to my comments…by the way I know why!!!!

  65. WHO IS THIS TRIBALIST ***** @7? I COMMEND THE MMD FOR DOING SO MUCH WITHIN 90 DAYS … WAY TO GO. SO … NI ZEE

  66. HH will remain an under5. Infact Alias Chipimo Jnr will soon surpass him. UPND is going to the archives after this year’s elections.

  67. The problem with Mr Sata is like looking at the nakedness of a child and ignore. Only the naive will believe him.

  68. To all thick heads on here 90 days is three months. What His Excellence is talking about can only be understood by persons with mature brains, we do not need 500 commissioners to write one book for two years. What we need is to find a nice quiet room in the out-skates of Lusaka and a dozen or two of eminent Zambians to locked away for 3 months(8hrs/day) with strict instructions that they come up with sensible a document from the Mungomba draft constitution. Tough but not impossible, i believe we still have decent Zambians who would sacrifice to do a good job for half or less what Red lip was paying his parrots at NCC( that includes Choma party MPs)

  69. Donchi Kubeba Mr. President you are wining this time. I can’t wait to vote for PF ubwato!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. He will prevail on Jesus to come back to earth in 90 days. He will prevail on God to transform Zambia into paradise in 90 days. He will find a cure for AIDS in 90 days. He will resurrect all dead Zambians in 90 days.
    Quite some president this mad man of Pa Fyamba (PF). Wake up bangwele and know that your leader is mad.

    • of course we love Sata and thats why we want him to sit his withered a$$ at home and let the professionals develop the country. This dude is Chama Chakomboka (RIP) in the making, even Given the one i once respected is beginning to sound as delusional as this old clown!

  71. KAUNDA ALALA, ALALA. That was the shout I heard from Sata:s mounth when the current constitution was passed in parley. Today, the same Sata says it is a bad constitution. PF suppoters ,please respond!!!

  72. “A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion”
    IAM NOT YOUR ENEMY BECAUSE OF MY CHOICE. This is not plausible considering that if you form government you are starting afresh in terms of what you want to do for zambian pipo and that you cannot do in 90days. i fail to understand pipo that believe you. Even under the current situation it is difficult to fire a civil servant outrightly unless the offence is ghast and has been proven. The govnment printer guy does not deserve that post because civil service conditions do not allow what he did. being a retired civil servant i want to tell you mr sata to stop misleading the pipo of zambia

  73. Am not a beneficiary of the Movement for Mad Dogs(MMD)….. i would rather go for Peoples Favorite(PF) and boat wisely. My Vote My PF. Isini Kubabulelela Mpazeni is also doing donchi kubeba on MMD

  74. Imwe bafikala naba finyo, stop making noise. Sata has never been the president for you to judge him harshly. Judge Sata has a minister and see how many will equal his record. To tell the truth even George Kunda will tell you that the Constitution Making Process failed because he was receiving instructions from RB no wonder he could not be fired. Sata means it when he says he will do gthis and that in 90 days. MMD has been riducling Sata’s 90 days slogan but it is them who are making roads in 5 days. Stupid *****s and these roads won’t last they are just there to woo supporters. Give Sata a chance and you will never regret it. He is more effective and efficient than Rupiah. Sata made Levy to work and he has made RB to sweat for his votes. Beleive you me Sata is winning these elections.

  75. Its a shame to see that there are people in this country who believe in waht Sata says. This man has never been serious with all his utterances. Civil Servants cannot easily be dismissed without the due process put in place. In any case, civil servants are the most secure employees in Zambia. Why is it that this man likes playing to the gallery? He says things without thinking. What powers does the Vice President have when the office is just ceremonial? Regarding the constitution, what is it that he will do because it still will be Parliament to deliberate. Is he saying as President he will hijack the process and ensure that everything is completed within 90 days? This is total madness and one wonders why he is given a forum to mislead the people in this manner.

  76. nomba nakwata umwenso mwe..fyonse in 90 days will be done..so we myt as well call for another election after 100 days coz the PF wud have finished their program? coz they only have a vision for 90 days

  77. #97 Please moderate your language. Even if George Kunda was receiving instructions from RB, do you think the two could sway the thinking of the whole NCC? In the first place, did you have a chance to read the draft document? Members of Parliament in the opposition were just being political and wanting to play to the gallery, otherwise the document contained almost all the things that we have been crying about. It was only the 50% + 1 that was not there. Even then, it was referred to a referendum. So what else is Sata coming to do with the constitution if not adopting it the way it was drafted by the NCC? There was no truth in what he was saying, and for your own information I doubt whether Mr Sata has any understanding of what a constitution is. He thinks it is a story in the Post.

  78. i know u attack sata out of envy.since he is winning this year i advise pf members not to trade insults with losers.

  79. #78 Should be saying Sata haz been in POLITIKS and not POWER for 50, or iz it 77 yearz? Am sure and do hope you don’t want somebody to assume the prezidency from “nowhere” in just a coupla yearz, however good or learned they are 

  80. A leader is always hated, therefore go sata, go sata. Mwamukolo VIVA SATA. Ignore the ranting of the tribal party UPND. The steam of the tribal party has died and the entire leadership of the party has gone into oblivion. 

  81. WHEN WILL THIS ***** PARTY UPND AND ITS SUPPORTERS GOING TO BE A TRUE OPPOSITION? TO THEM BREACHING CONSTITUTION IS OKAY. QUERRYING CORRUPTION IS A WASTE OF TIME. DIMWITS MAYBE YOU ARE JUST THERE TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO … DUMB

  82. I would just like to add this. Mr Sata has lost 3 elections in the past 10 years. To me it is worrying that he continues to run for the presidency. IF Mr. Sata was concerned about Zambia and its development he would focus his energies on consulting and using his networks to help build Zambia via NGOs and other charitable means.
    In addition if he was concerned about Zambia’s democracy and the establishment of a good constitution where was he in 1996 when Chiluba implemented the current flawed constitution or in 2000 when FTJ again wanted to make changes to it so he could run for a 3rd term. Perhaps you all have short memories, but I for one will not be fooled into believing that Sata has suddenly changed. Its that sort of naivety that destroys countries!

  83. don’t to detructors, be fucused to aticulate issues affecting the masses in zambia. look neither to the left nor the right

  84. I want to add this, if Sata is truly concerned about the state of the Zambian democracy. He should show it by resigning his commission as PF president and letting another candidate run as PF president. I can not take a person who doesn’t practice what they preach seriously.

    Sata has tried and failed to be president 3 times already, if he was concerned about democracy he would have resigned as PF president in 2001 after he lost the first time, and he would have helped build a democratic party by insisting that new aspiring candidates be fielded that way the door would be opened for new leaders with credibility and a party power-base to run for president. As is however PF might as well be called the Michael Sata Party with him as leader in perpetuity.

  85. @ 108..i totally agree with u..and u know what..even in 2016 he will stand..coz Rb is beating him this time around again..but because he can not hand over power he wont step aside

  86. Ask teachers and they will tell you that the man who brags of building school and clinics has not built any of them. No govt funding since his ternure in office! People should learn to say the truth for once. Our docility as Zambians will kill us. Don’t believe such crap anymor. Viva HH

  87. A society that refuses to believe the facts given to them is a foolish one. If Sata wins this year and Zambia regresses politically and economically we all know who to blame; sheepish and blind PF supporters who somehow believe the lies that Mr. Sata has fed them. I can’t understand how anyone can support and vote for a hypocrite like him. He called Levy a cabbage and insulted him and now he is saying he will build on his legacy? A legacy he claimed didn’t exist when Levy was alive. He supported the FTJ 3rd term and now he wants to be a constitutional reformer? He was part of the MMD when it was most corrupt and now he wants us to believe that as powerful as he was he knew nothing?

  88. You know what I want in the next constitution? A clause that says any opposition party leader who has lost at least one presidential elections will be barred from contesting again so as to insure that the Zambian political scene is not stagnant but constantly allowing for new leaders to emerge within established party ranks.

Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding this article. I want to learn more things approximately it!

  91. I have been browsing on-line more than three hours these days, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
