Youths from the opposition MMD have charged that former Solwezi East MP Richard Taima and his Kafulafuta counterpart James Chishiba dumped the MMD for their selfish interests.
MMD Die Hard Youth National Coordinator Bowman Lusambo stated that the two former MPs left the MMD because they are practicing politics of the belly.
“All these people resigning from their parties to join the PF are doing so to satisfy their bellies and those of their families,” Mr. Lusambo said.
“The people who are moving from our party are the people who are doing belly politics, it is very sad that they are putting their interest first at the expense of the greater good of their constituents,” he said.
“As for Chishiba, we the youths of MMD labored for this man to be elected in Kafulafuta. I personally worked hard to see to it that he wins Kafulafuta even his wife could bear me witness and this is how he had repaid his people.”
“We are very discouraged in the manner our MPs are being conned into joining the PF and abandoning the people that voted for them. It is very disappointing but we as youths in MMD we are not shaken because the MMD is a community party with roots on the ground,” he said.
Mr. Lusambo added, “The MMD has never been with Chishiba. This man abandoned the people of Kafulafuta since he was elected. He doesn’t live there with the people that voted for him. He is based here in Lusaka in Libala Township and he has failed to initiate any development in Kafulafuta.”
Mr. Lusambo recounted that it was not easy to campaign for Mr. Chishiba especially that he was viewed as a foreigner since he does not hail from the Lamba Land.
“He is not Lamba by tribe, he just worked closely with the Lamba in Kafulafuta and they trusted him with their vote and now he had abandoned them.”
Mr. Lusambo said the road from Mutaba School joining the Ndola main road is in a bad state and wondered how Mr. Chishiba had been utilizing Constituency Development Funds.
The MMD Die Hard Youth Coordinator urged Zambians to reject the current trend of bye elections.
“This thing of bye elections is just too much, and when we say the PF is taking us into a one party state, this is the thing we mean,” he said.
“People at UTH are dying from diseases that could be treated. Villages at Chitulika were the President comes from are failing to eat three meals a day. It does not mean you can serve the people only when you are a Minister.”
Mr. Lusambo advised Mr. Taima and Mr. Chishiba to emulate late UNIP Roan MP Cameron Pwele who refused ministerial offers from late Dr. Chiluba and Dr. Mwanawasa.
“I personally have great administration for the late Mr. Pwele, he stood his ground and worked for the people of Roan Constituency even when the government wanted to buy him off and those are the type of people we need in politics,” Mr. Lusambo said.
Defectors are like dog poop, worthless!!
Yes Lusambo, and while you are at it, could you flash the new MMD symbol the thumb and the middle finger.
Taima faced with what I would call “AN EMBARRASING WISE CHOICE” inkongole, bene bakeba mali!
surely Bowman you end has finally come. You did practice politics of the bellly too and this is your end times. MMD no more. May MMDRIP.
Don’t encourage primitive politics! Or are you also just a primitive zedian?
Sad, you are a fuuuuuul. Are you the only one who don’t know Bowman Lusambo? This chap practiced politics of the belly and that is why he is able to see it in his friends.
SAD THAT PF IS EVEN TOLERATING SUCH PEOPLE, THEY ARE SELFISH AND CAUSING OUR COUNTRY SPEND ON BY- ELECTIONS AT THE EXPENSE OF POOR ZAMBIANS. IF PF ARE CREDIBLE, LET THEM NOT NOMINATE THEM, TEACH THEM A LESSON.
Unfortunately all PF is seing is increasing ther numbers in the house for voting fimofimo. Honestly do they need to buy MPs to pass whatever? I thought if they bring progresive changesto the house even MPs from opposition will vote with them for the better of the nation! How did they manage to have MATIBIN and the likes of NCHITO voted for? Its because even the oppasition at that time thought those were better choices but those within the corridors of power are not satisfied maybe they have i hidden agenda.
Fellow Zambians, let this be an opportunity for us to separate real politicians from political quacks. By their fruits, we have been able to see that the majority of these characters who claim to be politicians are infact opportunists and charlatans who are in politics for survival. You cannot talk of development when the political arena is congested with characters who believe in the politics of the belly. We will continue to see these opportunists crossing floors to the ruling party at a very high rate but we will never see a corresponding rate in terms of development. The people of Mufumbwe and Mpongwe will testify to this fact.
That smile with unhealthy chubby looking cheeks speaks on Taima says alot about how desperate he is to continue eating free Govt money. I hope PF reclaims CEEC MONEY he owes. All of it I mean.
That’s just foolish my dad doesn’t steal money so if u don’t hav anything to tok about just keep quiet and continue livin yo borin life
Pipo of Zambia,what is happenng now is a cleansing process of knowing the fake politicians and be separated from those who mean well for Zambia in the near future.Wacth the space.Zambia is being Saved from pretenders.
Pipo of Zambia,what is happenng now is a cleansing process of knowing the fake politicians and be separated from those who mean well for Zambia in the near future.Wacth the space.Zambia is being Saved from pretenders.Remember in the Bible in the book of Acts,when Paul was bitten by a snake which was picked together with genuine firewood.When the fire came the snake was separated from the wood.Similary,the heat of poverty,selfishness etc.is seperating these snakes from the real pipo Zambia needs for development,and not the these snakes we currently have in politics.
Please dont welcome them
This has to come to an end. There is something seriously wrong with our election act. These thugs called politicians can not be deliberately making the Zambians go to the polls every other day. We should never waste our time and money on chaps like these. I think this is taking peoples patience too far.
Where is Mushala to put an end to this rubbish. Even old man in plot 1 should be seen to be serious with life.
PF is desperate for numbers in parliament so even Fally Ipupa’s dancers (Masumba and Taima) are a valuable addition to PF. Such people must not be trusted because the day PF is out of power they will jump out of the boat. Politics of the belly indeed.
they are styopeti *****s..atase..
All i can say is the current crop of mps in Zambia are a disgrace.Old times who know what it means to be an MP stay put e.g Hon R Muntanga,Hon J Mwiimbu BUT those who were given a chance,first times always show that they are after money.what kind of Development can you take when you are a Minister of the whole country when you fail to solicitate for Development in one constituency?some of you can even boast that am not only for this constituency but the whole country.Political parties chase these disloyal and traitors who are persuing personal aggrandisement
DONT PRETEND. IF SUCH MPS CROSSED FROM PF TO THE OPPOSITION NO ONE WILL COMPLAIN. BUT WHEN THE OPPOSITE HAPPENS, EVERYONE WANTS TO APPEAR TO BE WISE AND CONCERNED ABOUT HOSPITALS, ROADS AND SCHOOLS ETC. YOU CANNOT FORCE THESE MPS TO CONTINUE IN THE PARTY WHICH IS DEAD AND RIDDLED WITH INFIGHTING. MMD IS DEAD. WHY SHOULD ONE CONTINUE IN IT? WHETHER BY ELECTIONS ARE HELD OR NOT, THE BUDGET TOWARDS HEALTH , EDUCATION OR ROADS DOES NOT CHANGE. CAN ANYONE PROVE THAT BY AVOIDING A BY ELECTION IN IN SO AND SO CONSTITUENCE, THE MONEY WAS CHANELLED TO THIS OR THAT PROJECT?
THE OPPOSITION IS JUST TRYING TO AVOID THE EMBARASSING DEFEAT THAT THEY WILL SUFFER IN THE BY ELECTION. NO PROJECT HAS EVER SUFFERED BECAUSE A BY ELECTION WAS HELD. IF YOU ARE POPULAR JUST PROVE IT. DONT LECTURE US.
Chisenga, nobody is complaining about an MP crossing floors for genuine reasons. What people are against is the current trend where MPs are crossing to the ruling party either because they have been bribed or they are simply running away from court cases or huge unpaid loans . Are you not aware that hospitals have no medicines and that patients are sleeping on floors? If the budget towards educations and health does not change after bye elections, why are students rioting over allowances and children dying of curable diseases? It is brain washed people like you who are taking this country backwards. Zambia does not need spineless and gullible souls like you at the moment.
No one is complaining you f.o.ol our concern is the By elections which are expensive and just the nonsense of corrupt MPs getting away with crimes just because they are in ruling parties. Let them pay back the Money. We have serious Zambians that would have utilized the loans than these f.o.ols who were give loans based on their political lines.
Ati Sebana wikute…lol
Bowman…..this is when u have realised that there are politics of belly?lokk back and reflect what MMD used to do.Do you think anyone can trust MMD?No ways!!! no matter how much you will promise people, there will never be any trust.
Almost all politicians re in the politics of de belly including u empty headed ,Bowman. Those Zambians who re genuine are not even in politics. l am here in Chawama right now.l am seeing a large number of those that were dancing 4 mmd with pf .fools!
abowani tawiyanu inapita .what development did u bring to the country apart from chewing govt money.chaona munzako chapita manwa chilipaiwe.wait u will even stop talking soon .uzacila .
These are animals
Evidently men of little caliber. Jumping ship simply shows that you are so corrupt that you cannot manage the conflicts of interests between the government and your party. An example is, if you are a deputy minister of commerce as Taima was, you can advance the government’s agenda but not praise the ruling party’s progress. Also, you do not have to vote with the government on every single issue especially those that are beyond the scope of your ministry.
what medicine can i use to cure syphilis?.i tried injections but stil no cure.iam planing to mary and don’t want to infect my partner.v.c.t negative.dont insult me pls.
Mwaka, go to a big referral hospital and explain your history ( the syphilis drugs you ve taken before) and just be open with who ever will be attending to you, I have confidence they will help with the correct type of drugs and dosage you may require. Do not go to a private surgery, few of them are genuine. All in all I wish you good health in Jesus’ name, you will be fine.
The two honourable MPs are more than welcome. We are still expecting more to cross over.
The Boat is never full. Welcome Taima and Chishiba.
As for you Bowman Lusambo, what morals do you have to even point an accusing finger at Taima and Chishima?? Atase!!!
bowman ati u worked hard to put chshiba as mp even his wife can attest can u explain how.while the man was campaignin u were busy with his wife
Lusambo what about Your senior party official joining UPND like Doctor Cornilius Banda? The recent former Kaipiri Mposhi MP who lost the recenlty held bye elections who defected to UPND? I never head you say they were doing so for their bellies. Infact you are the one who is in pilitics for your belly.
You thought Nevers had a lot to put in your belly. But you are dissapointed. Shame. You party of the cadres causing well meaning MPS like Taima to resign because of your arrogance.
Bye bye polio LUSAMBO.
wel come in pf guys
tanx.wil do that.
u hav o right to join any party reson democracy says so , mm
All defectors will be shaking when the next NEW government takes over because no one would like to employ traitors, so they can smile for now but it wont last.
If these brainless opposition MPs who are willingly resigning from their parties to join the Pathetic Party (PF) are adopted by PF and re-elected, it will be confirmation that Zambians are dull and deserve to be led by dunderhaeds. Thank you.
Imwe balekeni. tamwaishiba ati ni freedom of association?
