Chief Government Spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni has strongly reacted to the press conference held by opposition paties in johannesburg , south Africa, labelling it as a ‘paid for’ Press conference. Mr Sakeni accused former President Rupiah Banda of scheming to spearhead the suspension of Zambia from the Commonwealth based on unfounded accusations.

According to Mr Sakeni, Mr. Banda‘s insinuations during his press conference held in Rosebank in South Africa by some Zambian opposition political leaders should be proved beyond all reasonable doubt for Zambia to be suspended from the commowealth.

However, the office of the former Rupiah Banda has just released a statememt staing that Former President Rupiah Banda was not at today’s press conference.

Below is Mr Kennedy Sake’s full press statement.

STATEMENT BY MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING SERVICES AND CHIEF GOVERNMENT SPOKESPERSON HON. KENNEDY SAKENI, MP ON ALLEGATIONS OF INTIMIDATION BY OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES

As Government we challenge former president Rupiah Bwezani Banda to come out clean over today’s press conference held in Rosebank, South Africa by some embattled Zambian opposition political leaders who include UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema, MMD’s Nevers Mumba and ULP’s Sakwiba Sikota.

During this ‘paid –for’ press conference, the so-called opposition leaders accused this Government of among other things; harassing, intimidating and attacking members of the opposition; that His Excellency, Mr. Michael Chilufya Sata is trying to enforce a one-party state; that President Sata is stoking ethnic tensions in the country and they further proceeded in a preposterous manner to call for the suspension of Zambia from the Commonwealth on account of these alleged violations and human rights abuses.

As Government, we are aware of Mr. Banda’s direct links to these immature and embarrassingly unpatriotic fruitless schemes. For example, is it a coincidence that Mr. Banda has been to South Africa twice in a week; he first left on 6th February accompanied by Mr. Dickson Jere and returned on 7th February; only to leave again for the same destination the following day – 8th February, 2013. And on 9th February, 2013, Pastor Mumba accompanied by Pastor Nakachinda similarly left for South Africa; only to be followed by Mr. Hichilema, who was accompanied by Mr. Jack Mwiimbu on 10th February, 2013. The result of these hasty and deceitful trips is today’s sponsored press conference in Rosebank!

Our word of advice to Mr. Banda and his newly constituted ‘defence’ team of Pastor Mumba, Mr. Hichilema and Mr. Sikota is that the matters he is facing shall be justly determined within the Zambian jurisdiction. Therefore, let them make no mistake because this PF Government is resolved to seek justice with regards to Mr. Banda and his children’s alleged involvement in the plunder of this country’s public resources. We shall follow the laid down legal procedures and processes to seek justice for the Zambian people.

No amount of political blackmail and media stunts will stop us from fulfilling this campaign promise we made to the Zambian people. The allegations of corruption against Mr. Banda and his family were not only made by us; they were also made by some of his newly found friends like Mr. Hichilema and also there was heightened international concern about the levels of corruption in Mr. Banda’s Government. Prompting Mr. Banda to tell international donors at that time to pack and go.

The truth of the matter is Mr. Banda is facing a credible investigation. And this Government has accorded Mr. Banda respect so far as his legal rights and freedoms are concerned. We therefore wonder what Mr. Banda is scared of to hastily convene a press conference by proxy in South Africa, which he could have done here. If Mr. Banda has done nothing wrong, let him face the law enforcement agencies. In as far we are concerned there are no human rights abuses or violations; Mr. Banda is alleged to have committed criminal offences and like every citizen he needs to answer to those allegations and he shall be accorded the full due process of the law.

As for Pastor Mumba, who himself is in court for suspected abuse of public resources; we urge him as a Man of the Collar to take time and reflect on his lies and cheap deceit. Our colleagues in opposition should have the courage and honesty to face the consequences of their previous misdeeds. They accuse us of intolerance and yet the same people complaining on foreign soil are the largest beneficiaries of our political tolerance.

When Mr. Hichilema made a reckless statement over a sovereign state of Sudan and alleged that the ruling PF was recruiting militias in that country, he was given an opportunity to retract his statement, which he rudely turned down. Today, the matter is in court and according to the documents filed in the Lusaka High Court Mr. Hichilema is arguing that he is entitled to alarm the nation since it’s a democracy; there is freedom of expression.

Let them know that there is nothing democratic about intentions to sow despondency and anarchy in a country. In fact, today’s act on foreign soil by these disgruntled opposition leaders alone is a serious indictment on their preparedness and eligibility to lead this country. It’s very clear that they are not ready for the task they so much long for. Who takes pride in discrediting a country they aspire to lead? It’s totally wrong; unAfrican and falls short of the elementary dictates of patriotism and focussed leadership.

THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA
OFFICE OF THE FOURTH REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT

Press Release

PRESIDENT BANDA DID NOT ATTEND JOHANNESBURG MEETING

LUSAKA, 12thFebruary, 2013— We wish to correct the impression created by some sections of the media that His Excellency Rupiah Banda, the Fourth President of the Republic of Zambia, was allegedly among the people that attended the press conference of Zambian opposition political parties and civil society organisations in Johannesburg today.

It is our sincere hope that this record can be put straight for the benefit of the general public.

    • There’s no opposition in Zed. From the time PF came into power the so called opposition are behaving like mad men. They rant, they desire to discredit PF and they don’t care if they damage the image of Zambia in the process. This isn’t the first time they’ve acted so unpatriotic. HH is on record calling for donor agencies not to help Zambians and on record of calling the president a dictator saying he will submit a list to the Int’l Crt of Justice. Now with Banda’s blessing thru his lawyer, Armstadum, he’s pushing for Zambia to be labelled a human rights abuser. Mind you, he is not calling for the PF government but for Zambia as a country. This includes all members of MMD, UPND, ULP PF alike. Today’s gov’t comprises of PF, UPND and MMD. The leader is PF. Where’s the love for Zed?

    • The govt was duty-bound to respond to the allegations but Hon. Sakeni’s reponse is emotional and lacks the leadership and guidance required of a ruling party. Exclamation marks in a ministerial press release??????????????? Tyring to play the role of a working intelligence officer by putting the exact dates and number of times that people left the country does not provide a true indication of productive intelliegence gathering (and for that matter include it in a press release???? 🙂 🙂 :)) Phew…. I reset my case

    • Blacky this is how cowards behave!!Why should the opposition meet in Johannesburg if they have nothing to hide?RB thinks Zambians will forgive him by mobilising these failures in the names of HH and Nevers Mumba.These two crooks know that they will never lead Zambia as presidents because their priorities are misplaced!!These people dont even know what opposition in politics is.They think it is all about fighting.Who do they intend to punish by having Zambia expelled from the Commonwealth.Is it PF or Zambian people?What human rights are they talking about when they are the ones who are busy encouraging violence?Who doesnt know anout Mwapatizya formula?

    • @Life is a journey; if Sata had the same attitude you have, he should have just stopped after the second attempt at the presidency. Just as you have that opinion, if Sata could become president of Zambia, I think any indecent person can make it, hence Mumba or HH can in the same token become president. Sata lied his way into State House, were it not for that, he is not presidential material. He is uncouth, undiplomatic (note I haven’t referred to his humble education – that is immaterial).

    • Spot on! Who does Sakeni think can be fooled by that cheap reaction? Everyone knows that Sata is flat on his face, I doubt it if he is even aware of his own roundings at the moment. This is why we see Mmembe fully in charge of running government. He does the thinking, the writing and editing of government statement in the only way he knows how, then pass it over to a mouth piece. Try another response Mr Minister, that’s a post tabloid editorial we are so familiar with as chief bootlicker rightly puts it. We’ve seen and heard it before.

We as PF are in power today because MMD was civilised enough to let us talk to the people. Remember the fall of eminent people like Gadaffi and Sadam. Compared to these men, Sata is a rat. But they fell. At ‘paid for press conference’, What is wrong with that?

    • Ba Bootlicker RB was in attendance in the name of his family lawyer. At his level, when his spokesperson acts on his behalf, we say he did it. If this whole thing was not planned and executed by Banda what was his lawyer doing there? This whole thing is going to blow on their faces when the Commonwealth will trash the document as malicious. MMD has MPs, UPND has MPs why don’t you use the right channels to fight grievances? What is the use of having MPs when you cannot even use them to fight for the plight of the party and its people. One day you call for donors not to help Zambia. today you call for the Zambia to be blacklisted. Where is your loyalty lie? To Zambia or to your political ambitions. MMD and UPND members are also Zambians. You condemn Zambia…..what a waste!

    • The statement said he attended but did not say whether in-person or in blessing. Think about it. It is Banda’s lawyer, paid by Banda who presented the petition. What a statesman! Condemning his own country just because he does not like the ruling party. All was well if it was MMD in power. They can plunder and chase donors when they speak against corruption. Now PF is speaking against corruption and plunder and MMD moves to condamn the whole country. Then you will come back and say Zambia we love you. Instead of being useful, you are just digging your own grave. Zambia will not be expelled or suspended from the Commonwealth. We are fine and actually can do without the current toothless opposition.

Sata endured all the persecutions he suffered under MMD and took it like a man. I remember when Mazoka took some cigars for Sata during one of many incarcerations Sata suffered under MMD. Anyway, I thought they were going to report Zambia to the International Criminal Court?

  14. Rupiah Banda and his lawyers are missing one important point. Of course the law provides for immunity from civil lawsuits seeking damages for presidential actions.
    Any criminal activities including plunder and corruption are not covered by presidential immunity, why can’t Zambians get this in their thick skulls. Stealing and corruption is NOT presidential action, it is criminal. Former Presidents in France and other countries have been questioned and some jailed for corruption WHILE they have been enjoying immunity. What is so special about RUPIAH BANDA or MICHAEL SATA? Even Sata, after his term will come under scrutiny and be questioned, even jailed if found guilty (unless he goes to meet his maker). If you continue shielding Rupiah, how are you going to question Sata after his term?

    0

    • You’re the one with a thick skull. If RB has committed any criminal activity please FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION and strip him off his immunity in PARLIAMENT.

  15. Honourable, Sakeni
    This country, SOUTH AFRICA, is not a tenth province of Zambia but a commodity rich and highly developed democratic state though it is still an emerging market. Mr. Hichelema enjoys more respect than PF gang put together and it is for this reason that Denel has a special interest in uranium deposits in Gwembe Valley (Southern Province) worth billions of US dollars or more. Expect more of these talk shows in S.Africa involving the Zambian opposition.
    Mr. Hichelema’s quest for his presidential position in the future is a matter which will be realised. S.Africa needs uranium to feed its nuclear power plants and its arms industry. This country is controlled by capitalists and whatever they say is final.

    • @Luundu, stop lying! These opposition 1d!ots of yours have been holding Press Conferences in the morning, afternoon, and evenings; Monday through Sunday unmolested by anybody. Where have U been? There is a big difference between a Press Conference and a Political Rally, bululu.

      Unlike a Rally, you don’t need ‘platoons’ of police officers to keep peace during a press conference; especially during potentially violent political rallies in Zambia these days. And it is govt’s (regardless of Party) responsibility to ensure safety and public order. Unfortunately, even this simple and clear govt mandate seems to be too complicated for opposition leaders to comprehend. All they seem to crave is confrontation.

      Now they think SIDE-SHOWS in foreign lands the way forward. WHAT A WASTE!

  18. I do not understand this, HH and Mumba, how do you defend a criminal? Are you going to protect Sata for all the corrupt activities after his term? I thought you guys would want to rule after 2016. I would have loved to see Sata’s immunity removed after 2016 and jailed for corruption like Hosni Mubarak of Egypt. How about that?

    • Who is a criminal here? Even a person caught red handed is alleged to be a criminal or shall we say a suspect and here you are calling someone who has not been fairly tried as a criminal. What dunderheads do we have in Zambia? You must be embarrassed for uttering such views. Innocent until proven guilty in accordance with the law of the land. Hence, for your own information Mumba and HH were not defending a criminal but a suspect who has the right to be heard and he has the right to remain silent in case of interrogations by the police. The accuser should provide the proof and not the other way round.

What a headless chicken you are. Why did you join politics if you knew you were such a pathetic coward? How can you go and embarass yourself in a foreign land like that? Which normal thinking leader in the whole world have u ever seeing going to hold a press conference to discredit his own country in a foreign land? Are you now campaining in South Africa? Will you get voters from there? I now see why Chipimo is a much better leader that you all put together. He (Chipimo) has shown alot of…

    • There’s no opposition in Zed. From the time PF came into power the so called opposition are behaving like mad men. They rant, they desire to discredit PF and they don’t care if they damage the image of Zambia in the process. This isn’t the first time they’ve acted so unpatriotic. HH is on record calling for donor agencies not to help Zambians and on record of calling the president a dictator saying he will submit a list to the Int’l Crt of Justice. Now with Banda’s blessing thru his lawyer, Armstadum, he’s pushing for Zambia to be labelled a human rights abuser. Mind you, he is not calling for the PF government but for Zambia as a country. This includes all members of MMD, UPND, ULP PF alike. Today’s gov’t comprises of PF, UPND and MMD. The leader is PF. Where’s the love for Zed?

    The man ran a country into a total messy. Zambia should have been far much better than it is.
    During his reign corruption was just, “pick what u want” ie grinding mills, sinking boreholes, burying billions of kwacha etcetera and etcetra.

  24. Who are you, Sakeni? Rich South Africans not owners of Shoprite, Pick & Pay, Spar,Game Store, Edcon, or these usual chain outlets but wealthy families are not interested in your mickey mouse business deals. Thus far, they want to work with someone who has both the required education and money so as to speed up the process of doing business in the region and in particular in Zambia. Zambia has bargaining chips in negotiations involving possible massive investments designed to create qualitative employment, its minerals and an educated wealthy presidential candidate.

In Zimbabwe there are uranium deposits and capitalists’ interests are not as important as they are in Zambia.

Is SA where there voters are and who are they trying to defend, themselves or Zambian?, have u ever seen a any opposition leader who discredit his country in a foriegner land? Not even in a USA where u can discredit your president or country in a foriegn land. Zimbabwe and Congo have the most human abuse but I have not seen any opposition leader discredit their country in a foriegn land. Zambia twasebana like kapwempwe said.

  31. I see two issues out of Sakeni’s outbursts, Firstly Rupiah Banda is not the right man to talk about championing the fight against human rights abuses when he brutally tortured and killed unarmed Lozis for staging protest.
    Secondly, the PF government make it impossible for the opposition parties to hold meetings at home which leaves them with no choice but to go elsewhere outside the country. Some are already calling this as an act of treason, really?

Nevers, HH and RB must be writing to the commonwealth from Mukobeko.. may be that may attract global attention..Sata and PF campaigned through out their opposition life day en night..

So it is a latest human rights violation to investigate and prosecute those who have breached the law? And which common wealthy do they want to suspend Zambia on account of fake human rights violations? I think it is not the British Common Wealth led by Her Majesty the Queen of England, but the common wealthy of thieves.

If opposition partieis were credible enough to only talk about isses and not politiking, I do not see how any government will stop them. I am still getting over the purpose of the Kabwata. Besides, this move of the opposition will just weaken them further. The Brits are the ones who found Chiluba guilty of plundering and they are calling the RB to be investigated. They had withheld some donor aid to Zambia in RB’s time due to corruption not RB is running to them cruing foul.

We all know HH, Mumba and the others do not agree with the governance of the PF, that is why they are in other parties. Our country has a way of dealing with the issues. UPND has MPs, MMD has MPs why are all these MPs silent yet the party leaders are busy ranting? Are the true people’s reps, the MPs also calling for Zambia to be blacklisted? No MP went to their respective constituents to seek input of the state of the country. Get a life.

  38. GOVERNMENT REFLECTION: Once some of their citizens begin to feel more comfortable and secure to conduct their political activities in foreign lands than in their own countries, sometimes it is time for any government, even those that believe that they are the best, to sit and ponder seriously why this should be so. People don’t get out of their countries for nothing, unless they feel that they can’t bear the difficulties of continuing to live there. Most Zambians that are outside working, were driven out due to the perceived poor work and career opportunities. This is a sad development. But there’s a cause behind every action.

But when they look into the issue and realise that I was just a cry baby seeking support where it is not due, even the little credibility I had would be lost.

If they had any evidence for the so called crimes, why not put it on camera, this a digital era.

It is only Zambians who can revolt against the GoVt and not South Africans who have nothing to do with the Zambian problems. Why should the opposition seek sympathy from foreigners and not it’s own people whom they want to serve? The opposition in my view are not trying to represent the interest of Zambians, but to the contrary, it is for their own self preservation. Have you ever seen the opposition from eveb the worst repressive Govt of Zimbabwe run to go and wage the war from SA or Zambia? This war against the PF Govt can only be waged by Zambians and Zambians only and not the Amsterdams. Opposition grow a SPINE!!!

  56. Someone has said that the best way is for the international community should impose travel sanctions to USA, India, UK (EU) and South Africa on top PF leaders. This will teach them to respect human rights

  57. Alberto Fujimori Fujimori[ born 28 July 1938) served as President of Peru from 28 July 1990 to 17 November 2000. In April 2009, Fujimori was convicted of human rights violations and sentenced to 25 years in prison for his role in killings and kidnappings by the Grupo Colina death squad during his government’s battle against leftist guerrillas in the 1990s.In July 2009 Fujimori was sentenced to 7½ years in prison for embezzlement, after he admitted to giving $15 million out of the Peruvian treasury to the former intelligence service chief, Vladimiro Montesinos. Two months later in a fourth trial, he pled guilty to bribery and was given an additional six-year term.Under Peruvian law all the sentences must run concurrently, with a maximum length of imprisonment of 25 years.

  58. Hon. Kennedy Sakeni MP, I am sure that as a “sensible” and well educated person in the matters of human rights and established democratic principles, you must agree that after all, it was better allowing opposition meetings within borders of the Republic of Zambia instead of gaining bad publicity abroad?

    • Gonclaves, you seem to be quite a bitter individual. You seem to the one foaming in the mouth as you accuse others. Your bitterness is blinding you, and you are abusive. You are as arrogant as HH, who, when you do not agree with his opinion you are the enemy. Someone advised me not to waste my time on you. I take that timely advice. You really are one bitter muthyrfukkyr

  60. There is nothing wrong holding a press conference from outside, neither does it show cowardice. If your country does not give you the liberty to do so, you look for other solutions. President Sata goes abroad to seek for medical attention not because he is unpatriotic, but because he thinks his country cannot offer him the services he needs. So, going outside is normal. After all, Zambia is not an island.

  63. What is most embarrassing is to have unpatriotic leaders like this.If you remember one story a while back a certain girls singing group said on a show in the UK that they were embarrassed to have George bush as their president .When they went back home that marked the end of their career as most people did not like that.My point is nobody fights with their wife and goes to say how bad she is to people.Lets remember we are African lets have a bit of pride for our country.There is nothing that hints to a one party state here .What i see is everyone wants to get to state house at all cost even at the cost of embarrassing the country.What these gentlemen said might make donors step back and who will suffer ?Look at Zim.who is suffering?have a little love for Zambia.

  64. A better response from a “listening government” would have been to deny the allegations and a call for differences between Zambians to be resolved domestically through dialogue and understanding.

    Instead the honourable minister treats the nation to a diatribe of hate and bitterness directed against RB (and a lesser extent HH) when this isn’t even about RB (or HH) but about what is happening to the rights to freedom of assembly and expression for all Zambians.

  66. INFACT SATA AND THE PF GOVERNMENT HAVE BEEN TREATING THESE OPPOSITION LEADERS WITH KIDS GLOVES. ALL OF THEM ARE LOSE CANONS. THERE IS NO COUNTRY WHERE THIS KIND OF LAWLESSNESS IS TOLERATED. THESE OPPOSITION LEADERS ARE DRAGING THE NAME OF THE GOVERNMENT INTO DISREPUTE IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY. ALL THIS IS NONSENSE. THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO HAVE VOWED TO MAKE ZAMBIA UNGOVERNABLE. THE PF GOVERNMENT SHOULD SHOW LEADERSHIP AND DEAL WITH THESE TROUBLE MAKERS STERNLY. THESE CHARACTERS DO NOT DESERVE ANY SYMPATHY FROM ZAMBIANS. SATA IS BUSY TRYING TO CORRECT THE WRONGS THAT RB AND HIS TANDEM OF THIEVES DID AND YET THESE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO BRING CHAOS IN THE LAND. LET US SHOW THEM THAT WE ARE DISGUSTED WITH THEIR BAHAVIOUR BY REJECTING THEIR CANDIDATES IN THE FORTH COMING POLLS.

  67. OK. THE FORTH COMING BYE ELECTIONS IN MPONGWE AND LIVINGSTONE WILL SHOW IF ZAMBIANS HAVE APPROVED OF THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE OPPOSITION OR THE OPPOSITION LEADERS HAVE MISFIRED AND DESERVE TO BE REJECTED.

  69. The Zambian people deserve better than their President.
    President Sata has chosen to deliberately go down the road of becoming a dictator. Power corrupts…absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    In the end President Sata will be the loser and he should reflect on the fate that awaits him.

  70. Which point ba Maxiwell? Dont you know that the Public Order Act under PF does not allow such gatherings? How were they going to gather peacefully in the wake of the public order act? Please be reasonable. If chances to express yourself cant prevail in your own country, then do it elsewhere!

  72. It is official, this is the worst Govt Zambia has ever had this far. If you deny your opponents even to hold a committee meeting to discuss issues and you put them in cells, and the only reason you give to exonerate your actions is that you are not party to the law you are applying then you do not think properly. These guys are tire of going to the cells for wrong things they will definitely travel to countries where sanity prevails to hold meetings there. We now have a close that needs a degree to aspire for the office of presidency the reason is in the pudding and callers of such are vindicated. The advise to PF is please even though you are rullng at the wrong time(old UNIP style) times have changed. PF, change with the time and leave hypocrisy behind. You held all the meetings freely.

  73. Pls people do not take the peace Zambia enjoys for granted it seems the spirit of one Zambia One Nation is not being promote by both the ruling party and the opposition.What happened to the Indabas we saw in Mwanawasa’s Govt.what happened to dialogue?Why resort to impose Public order act.Police call out being saved while some one is in dock before a Judge.Naimwe ba opposition your solution of holding a gathering outside your own soil can only discredit Zambia please refrain.Remember the Mwanawasa fought to repeal article 4 by using his profession as a lawyer.Now why are you so scared to deal with the issue the public order act dont you have credible lawyers on your side.Has Sakwiba failed you?try other means. That’s democracy for you.
