Mutati urges fellow MMD MPs to swallow their pride and Join UPND

Headlines Mutati urges fellow MMD MPs to swallow their pride and Join...

Felix Mutati Kasama

FELIX Mutati says MMD Members of Parliament should swallow their pride and join the winning team of UPND.

And UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema has bragged that he is the only man with the skills to solve the problems of Zambia.

Speaking during a Public rally in Mufulira Mutati who is in the UPND campaign team said there is nothing in the MMD that people should look for.

“Am asking all the MMD Members of Parliament to come and join the winning team. We need to work together to transform the economy of this country. To create jobs for the Zambian people because we know how the people are suffering,” Mutati said.

Hichilema who made numerous promises said he has the skills to transform the country.

“I have the skills to solve problems. I will ensure that the mines benefit the Zambian people,” he claimed.

Among others that attended the rally included ADD president Charles Milupi, former Finance minister Situmbeko Musokotwane, Patrick Mucheleka and former first lady Maureen Mwanawasa.

However, Movement for Multi party Democracy (MMD) President Nevers Mumba has appealed to all party members to remain focused and embrace unity.

Dr. Mumba says he has hope and trust that the members have the potential to turn around the negative things and forge ahead.

Dr. Mumba explains that he has been working tirelessly to ensure that every member of the party understands the vision of the party and see to that everyone has the responsibility to help shape the vision of the party.

He says the party is doing so to answer the demands of the majority Zambians who want a party that will listen to their cries and address their challenges.

Dr. Mumba states that it is in this regard that the focus should be collectively on unity than answer back to individuals who only want to distract the efforts of others.

    • GRADE 7 QUESTIONS
      Which of the following will win the forth coming Presiddential elections?
      A. Edith Mary Nawkwi

      B. Nevers Sekwila Mumba

      C. Edgar Muhammad Lungu

      D. Hakainde Moses Hichilema.

      What is the correct answer?

    • UPND maybe on course to win the January 2015, but I cant help but wonder why the likes of Mutati with his international exposure should be urging his own party MP’s to cross the floor to join an opposition party? What kind of democracy is this when you are simply promoting the “recycling” of the same politicians under a different name.
      Please Zambians, reject MP’s who cross party lines and equally reject political parties who openly accept political prostitutes.
      Zambia needs to mature politically and such prostitution and politices of the belly will not help the nation whatsoever.
      Therefore with such developments UPND is equally destined for failure. We now dont even hear of its own top leadership with the exception of HH. Even Katele Kalumba is at it.
      Vote wisely in Jan 2015

    • If he had the skills upnd would have been in govt a log time ago.

      Apparently, the only skills he has are destructive ones…..he has successfull destroyed the once vibrant upnd and gave gave it a bantustan and tribal tag.

      We dont need such skills in our country

    • HH should be VERY CAREFUL getting to bed with Thieves – zedians are looking to him as someone credible for he has been on the political scene for a while & is seemingly unblemished – his vision for a United Zambia, is one envisaged before “Recycled thieves” joined his campaigns – hope when he gets to plot 1 – he is not held to ransom – he is very easily falling into the same trap Chiluba fell into (He was voted for becoz he had fought for ZCTU, not becoz of MMD!!)

    • GOD IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND NOT HH. HH CAN NOT WIN BELIEVE ME, MR. MUTATI AND OTHERS WHO ARE JUST WASTING YOUR TIME ON YOUR HH.

    • Ba lusakatimes are supporting edgar lungu.I can tell from the way they report HH rally campaigns. Trying to make him look weak and over ambitious. things like “he claimed, made many promises”. But atleast i commend ba LT,you are giving him a fair amount of coverage.But stop sending subliminal messages to your readers with such negative hidden comments in your reporting. You know zambians and subliminal messages tulomfwana!!! thats how we vote,by people implanting ideas in us. thats why zambians like to wear expensive designer clothes ati ni timberland mdala, ni pierre cardin, ni foschini, ni calvin klein, ni tommy hilfiger.
      in the mean time ninshi they are forgetting their own designers abatunga ifitenge. If only you all could wear ifitenge, do you know how much money we could save.

    • If HH embraces these hyenas who shamelessly looted and plundered our country for 20 years, he won’t get my vote.

      HH you don’t need these callous thieves to win. We haven’t forgotten what they did with Chiluba. Distance yourself from them.

    • I trust these MMD MPs because they too and their families are suffering from the high cost of living, weak Kwacha, high debt, lack of bed and drugs in health centres under EVIL PF. PF must go at all cost using all peaceful means possible.

    • Is MMD as a party finished? If Hakainde wins the elections on January 20th that will mark the end of MMD. Nevers take note. If Edgar wins the elections on January 20th, that will give reason for UPND and MMD to regroup possibly under one umbrella to try it out again in 2016 but not under HH again. Going the HH way even after losing would be madness. And if Edgar Lungu wins, the Rainbow Party will have a false start. It will be a party that will be regarded as dead on arrival. Its name also is a killer. GBM, Sampa and Kabimba will need to form another party but with a better name. The elections are between UPND and PF, period! The way I see it after January 20th most parties that have been losing elections should reflect and possibly form alliances or form new amalgamated parties.

    • This is exactly why HH will never win, his political allies are his greatest liability..who in his right mind would go for Mutati a political prostitute along the likes of VJ that begged to join PF but were denied by the late HEMCS..

      For those that have access to youtube and are able to stream videos please watch the BBC documentary – WHEN ZAMBIA MET CHINA and you’ll see how corrupt Mutati is where he and other corrupt MMD chaps were scheming of means and ways to sell off Zambia’s mineral wealth..what a crook he is and it is no surprise that one crook chooses to associate with others..

      Zambians see through these thieves and will never vote UPND, Zambians are for PF all the way!!!

      ****VIVA EDGAR LUNGU 2015****

    • @It’s a worry, it would be helpful to understand your comment if you told us who you voted for in 2011. If you voted PF then you were basically voting for UNIP and MMD. Only UPND has a clean president who has not changed parties all his life. That what it means to be principled.

    • Govt challenges HH over RAMCOZ
      ?Jun 10, 2010 10:22 pm
      ?51 655 views Email This Post | Print This Post

      Government has challenged United Party for National Development UPND president Haikainde Hichilema to explain what happened to the hundreds of millions of dollars that went missing when he engineered the privatization of RAMCOZ and other parastatals.

      Chief Government spokesperson Ronnie Shikapwasha in an interview with QFM said Mr Hichilema should not try to come out clean on the sale of RAMCOZ but explain the criteria and procedures used to sell off the mine which subsequently resulted in the suffering of the ex-workers of the company.

      He said Government has all the information with regards the manner in which Mr Hichilema handled the privatization of parastatals…

    • If only Mutati and similar chameleons had committed half as much effort to selling Dr Mumba and the MMD economic achievements this would have been a done deal.

      Nevers Mumba wouldn’t have needed to fight such opposing forces. The same people claim he isn’t sellable. It does my head in. If undoing what your leader is laying down for the party isn’t gross indiscipline, I don’t know what is.

      Going forward,Win or lose in this by-election, MMD parliamentary candidature among existing rebels should not be guaranteed. New candidates among loyal members must be found and invited to stand in 2016 general elections.

      It’s time Dr Mumba was given some space to stamp his ideas on MMD.

    • WEBO:;;;Voting for Pipo who sold mines teti baba.Reasons
      1.Mutati’s brother sold mines with HH
      2.Mutati stole money at zesco
      3.HH came into politics through tribalsim
      4.MMD wants to be back through UPND and sell Zamtel,Zesco and Finance bank
      5. Musokotwane stole 1000 bicycles
      6.HH is surrounded by finished politicians who said he didn’t want recycled politicians.Therefore HH can’t be trusted.
      7.HH has made a deal with boars in south Africa to buy zambian mines.Boars are brutal and Zambia will regret

      Anyway PF is winning coz we are now happy to be zambians.Viva EL.Bakabolala teti tubabwesha mu power.

  1. UPND is winning with 37%,
    Edgar with 35%
    Nervas Mumba with 13%
    Edith Nawakwi with 10%
    Nothing will change the results, i thank you

    • HH AND THE LIKES OF MUTATI ARE DAY DREAMERS. ZAMBIANS CAN NOT VOTE FOR HH. AM SURE YOUR SAW FOR YOURSELF HOW YOUR RALLY FLOP IN NKWAZI NDOLA WHERE YOU STARTED PAYING K 50 FOR PEOPLE TO ATTEND YOUR RALLY AND MY SISTER WAS ONE OF THEM WHO RECIEVED YOUR DIRT K50 IN ORDER TO COME TO YOUR RALLY SHAME.

    • COPPERBELT PROVINCE, EASTERN PROVINCE, LUAPULA PROVINCE, NORTHERN PROVINCE, LUSAKA PROVINCE WILL GO EDGAR LUNGU, MUCHINGA WILL GO TO EDGAR LUNGU. SOUTHERN PROVINCE WILL GO TO HH, WESTERN PROVINCE WILL BE 50-50, CENTRAL PROVINCE WILL ALSO BE 50-50, AND NORTH-WESTERN WILL BE 52 PERCENT PF 48 PERCENT UPND

    • You are mistaken. HH is winning by 52%, mark that in your diary. Remember the most popular guy in 2011 won by 43% and 57 was shared mostly between MMD and UPND. This time UPND and MMD are in an alliance. This technically means MMD voters are likely to vote for UPND plus those that have fallen out of love of PF. Cant u see the desperation in their team? They are saying HH is courting thieves but they are always frequenting someone they called thief and had his immunity lifted. Why do they want RB’s support? Politics is about numbers. Yabakosela chabe.

  2. “And UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema has bragged that he is the only man with the skills to solve the problems of Zambia.”

    LT, WHAT IS YOUR INTENTION??????????

    OTHER THAN H.E. LEVY P. MWANAWASA, NAME ONE PRESIDENT WHO HAS TRIED TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEMS. Mwanawasa help clear Zambia’s debt and this has allowed the PF government to excessively borrow.

    HE IS NOT BRAGGING BUT MERELY STATING A FACT

    IT TAKES A MAN WITH A VISION TO BOLDLY STATE AS SUCH. IN LIFE A PERSONE HAS TO AIM HIGH TO AVOID HITTING THE GROUND

    • What vision? Of underpricing Zambian parastatals with a view to benefiting therefrom? Of failing to build your own house and living in a house in Kabulonga cheaply bought off from the disposal of parastatal assets? Of using money made from the sale of parastatals and buying off cattle ranches and selling meat to Zambeef while failing to add value to the same meat? If this is what people call a vision, then the word needs to be redefined!!!

    • @ze doc

      WHEN YOU POST A COMMENT MAKE SURE IT IS INFORMED

      DO YOU REALISE THAT PRIVATISATION WAS DONE DURING THE MMD TIME AND SATA WAS PART OF THAT PROCESS. MAJORITY OF PF MEMBERS ARE RECYCLED MMD SO ALL ARE PART OF THE PROCESS. (MEZAF)

      AN INDIVIDUAL CANNOT CAUSE GOVERNMENT TO SELL GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT BECAME RICH THROUGH THE SAME PRIVATISATION

      HH WAS NOWHERE NEAR SUCH DECISIONS SO LOOK AT YOUR OWN LEADERS AND ASK SUCH QUESTIONS

      IT JUST SHOWS YOU THAT HH’s WEALTH WAS OBTAINED THROUGH GENUINE TRACEABLE MEANS. THIS WE CANNOT SAY ABOUT A NUMBER OF PEOPLE TODAY

    • I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU GUYS INSULT EACH OTHER. IF YOU LIKE HH, CONTINUE WITH HH. AND IF YOU LOVE EL CONTINUE WITH EL. BUT THE POLLS WILL TELL WHO IS MORE POPULAR. PERIOD. AND DO NOT VOTE FOR A PERSON SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS POPULAR, BUT RATHER VOTE FOR THE ONE WHOSE PRINCIPLES RHYME WITH YOURS. EL WILL DEFINATELY WIN THE POLLS. BUT HE IS NOT THE BEST.

    • I would like to know what skills HH is bragging of? If I what I have read from other bloggers is true then equally he can’t be trusted. One thing I know is that no one is squeaky clean.

    • @selfexpressioin,please get your facts right! Mwanawasa came to power after Zambians under FTJ Chiluba and his Finance Ministers (Kasonde,Penza,Nawakwi,Katele Kalumba) had painfully followed the Structural adjustment programme of the IMF,World Bank and other prescriptions from other international lenders to qualify for debt forgiveness under the Highly Indebted Poor Country(HIPC)programme. A lot of countries in Africa have benefit from that programme. In fact Mwanawasa delayed Zambia’s qualification to HIPC due a budget over run in his first since he traveled too much!! Mwanawasa liked to single handedly claim success without reference to those who created the foundation to a point where claimed Lumwana and Kansanshi as his initiatives when not- investment just matured during his era!

  3. This country called Zambia, we seem to be going round in cirlces, making do with the same old chpas under different platforms. Iyai, I wouldn’t want to belive for once that Zambia is short of credible people! We cannot be recycling the same spent forces, the same chaps we gave the boot in 2011!

    • It’s because the majority of our politicians are political prostitutes who will sleep with anything that looks likely to win. Politics is a way to getting rich quick. Just compare wealth of most of the PF MP’s 3 years ago and now? Compare it to Kaunda’s MP’s after 27 years, most of them didn’t even have a house to go to when evicted out of government properties. If you understand this then you will understand the confusion and the political prostitution. We need a brand new team at every level to move Zambia forward. Unfortunately this will only happen in the next 15 years when these selfish recycles politicians are long gone.

  4. BA MUTATI AFTER YOUR BROTHER EMMANUEL AT MOPANI NOW SOLD OUR MINES WITH HH, YOU WANT US TO BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN MANAGE THE MINES BETTER? YOU ARE LIERS WHO HAVE CAUSED MISERY IN THE COUNTRY FOR SELLING OUR ASSETS FOR A SONG! YOU A CROOK WHO USE OTHERS AND DUMP THEM TO BENEFIT ALONE, THATS YOU MUTATI. YOU HAVE BEEN A THIEF IN THE INSTITUTION YOU HAVE WORKED AND WE KNOW YOU WELL AS YOU ARE A SKIMMER WHO KNOWS HOW TO TALK TO GET WHAT HE WANTS. HH HAS FAILED TO ADDRESS/ MENTION THE FUNDAMENTALS THAT WILL MAKE ZAMBIA EARN MORE FROM THE MINES AND ALSO WHAT WILL LOWER THE COST OF FUEL WITHOUT TEMPERING WITH THE CURRENT PLANS FOR THE GOVT.

    • Indeed that is the problem with HH for people that critically analyse every statement he makes. He says he will ensure Zambians derive maximum benefits from the mines. But he does not give even a single hint about how he will do this. He says he will reduce the price of fuel and mealie meal but does not tell us how. At least Lungu and team are telling us about how they are thinking of doing this. Honestly speaking, HH’s campaign is a mere wish list and nothing else. The fantastic claims he makes may be a result of never having worked in government and lacking this experience. The more reason why Zambians must be careful voting for a greenhorn into government like HH. The guy is just clueless!!!
      All he knows best is selling off government assets and benefiting from them.

    • AN INDIVIDUAL CANNOT CAUSE GOVERNMENT TO SELL GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT BECAME RICH THROUGH THE SAME PRIVATISATION

    • Instruction to sale was given by the President the group was just doing their job. Why are Zambians so dull that is why you put comedians in State House. HH2015 let us all vote wisely.

  5. Edgar will win this election. It’s only those who are engaged in self-deceit that cannot see this bare truth. With or without Scott Edgar will win. With or without MMD parliamentarians HH will NOT win this election. May be the next one

    • I hope you will not have a heart attack when you loose, there is no sympathy vote this time around because of the violence and the economy going down even villagers are aware that life has become difficulty. HH 2015 vote wisely pass on the message to your families

    • You seem to be the only one living in a fool’s paradise. Cant u see the panic in El team? Why do they want RB’s support if it is clear EL will win? U will be shocked my brother or sister.

  6. May the day when Edgar Muhammad Kachasu Lungu as born be cursed.

    I will be happy if the man dies in a road accident.

    I hate Edgar Chibuku Lungu with all my senses.
    I know my views are also shared by 8 million Zambians, the rest sapot him.

    I will also curse an blogger who will oppose my comment.

    • By the way, he was born on the day and month that man who created this opportunity for HH buried. The Man that HH hated. And that man was Sata, without Sata’s death we you and your UPND lot would be so excited and delusional today. Do you still want to curse the day?

    • You seem to be a satanist, Jesus Christ who loves Edgar Lungu, conquered Satan on the cross. So your evil plans on EL are likely to make you
      die the most disappointed person on earth.

      Please repent of your sins before you find yourself in the lake of fire.
      Jesus is waiting for you and i can assure you that your life will be better than before. What do you benefit by being a murderer in thoughts
      and words? The answer is nothing apart from being the servant of sin and Satan.

      I believe God will help you.

    • Please don’t curse me, I actually like that PF chose a drunk , client money thieving lawyer. The Kola foundation is so over confident that they believe they can impose a drunk as President for all Zambians just because they say so.

      They are relying heavily on Zambian stupidity coupled with tribalism and the poverty of those who know better but afraid of poverty.

      There are so many high class Bemba and Easterners who could stand , or I forget. All the high class Northerners and Easterners with any intelligence have crossed over.

      The true tribalist will vote for Nevers Mumba, that’s why he went to Kasama first, the ones with jobs and contracts to protect will use their mafia to vote for PF. This split is what is giving HH the big crowds. Sometimes even bigger than PF

    • Please do differentiate between pride and confidence, your EL has nothing to say about himself his track record is zero. HH for President

    • HH has never prided himself. At no time did HH boast about his wealth which should be the main thing that makes a man proud. When he says he is the only one with skills to resolve zambia’s problems, that is not boasting. In fact it is truth. U cant compare Lungu to HH by far. These two are miles apart. That is a hard truth and u know it yourself.

  7. Felix please tell the people the truth, HH is far a way to win this elections. Bangoshe ta balala chulu chimo…………………..

  8. the only thing impressive about (HH) is how he uses his farming skills to herd these headless oxen like Mutati and parade them on stage like cattle in a kraal!

    • You foolish people do not know that Sata would have loved to put Felix as his Vice he just feared a revolt from the members of PF. Sata knew that Felix is intelligent and Felix did not accept any offers in PF because he kept his integrity and feared those who can do anything to get rid of competition.

  9. How did the Russian tycoons get rich? How did HH become rich? Exactly the same way. Just listen to what HH says, “I will give back to you Zambians what you have given me” HH knows where he got the riches from. From the poor Zambian people.

  10. When MPS from MMD cross over and it so happens that UPND loses does it mean the MPS will have to resign or they will be expelled for not supporting there President?This like jumping from a fire to a frying pan.

    VIVA PF

    • MMD MPS SUPPORTING HH ARE CROOKS AND THERE MANIFESTORS ARE NOT SIMILAR. THESE SAME MMD MPS ARE ON RECORD IN 2011 THEY TOLD US THAT THE HAVE THE BEST MANIFESTO. CROOKS WHO CAN TRUST YOU? MUTATI STOLE FROM ZESCO DURING THE 2001 ELECTIONS, AND THE SAME CHAP IS A WOMANISER.

  11. I wonder why are these F**ls changing their tribe from A Tonga to a Bemba. Are they so scared with the Bemba influence on the Ground. Northern, Muchinga, Copper belt, Central, Luapula, Lusaka, Eastern for EC Lungu and the rest of the provinces, Lungu will come out Second with very small margin. Lungu will win these Elections with 65% to 70%.

    • We are proud to be Zambians and Tongas who wants to change their tribe ubupuba you are the one that changed yours from Kasai

    • Central ni 60 UPND 40 PF , Lusaka ni 50-50 Copperbelt ni 40 60 (PF) luapula ni 15 – 85 (PF) Eastern ni 35 – 65 (PF). Southern ni 90 (UPND) 10 western ni 95 (UPND ) 5 , NW ni 85 (UPND ) 15 , northern/Muchinga ni 10 UPND 20 MMD and 70 PF.

      Calculate against the voters roll,
      Note that Luapula is about the same voters as Western, 400,000
      Southern is about the same as Northern around 650000
      Central province is mostly Bantubotatwe apart from Kapari.
      Lamba are closer to bantubotatwe than to Bemba group. In essence Bantubotatwe are the largest language grouping. There down fall is lack of cohesion due to a lack of paramount chief like the Bemba have or the Lozi.
      Bemba are not the majority tribe in. Zambia, we speak Bemba bcs Bemba were laborer on the mines and marketeers while Tonga were…

    • @ nkembo, you dont have brains. stop bringing tribal issue in this chapter.
      Your lack of brains will lose you the 2015 elections.

      Zambia is reading your trashhhhh

    • ””’@ nkembo, you dont have brains. stop bringing tribal issue in this chapter.
      Your lack of brains will lose you the 2015 elections.

      Zambia is reading your trashhhhh

  12. But, HH must avoid bragging at all costs! He should know that there are numerous other Zambians more educated than him who may not be lucky to be in the advantageous position he currently finds himself in!

    We do not need know-it-all autocratics leaders any more. What we need is collective leadership. God has not put all the capabilities in one man alone.

    Just a word of caution to the in-coming President HH.

  13. “And UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has bragged that he is the only man with skills to solve the problems of Zambia” Ba LT,what is this kind of reporting supposed to mean? HH did not say this, LT be careful some of your reporters are pf cadres trying to paint a bad image of HH and portray him as a proud person who should not be voted as president of this country. This the reason some bloggers call you PF symphasizers.The use of the word “bragged,,” is in bad taste ba LT.

  14. @maano
    This a pf site my friend, HH did not brag but the reporter is deliberately reporting for a hidden agenda.HH simply said that “i have the skills to solve the problems..”.look at the way the LT reporter is trying to twist things. The use of words….”he claimed”….he made numerous promises,…”. Every genious blog can see that the reporter is biased against UPND leader,probably a pf supporter.

    • I think some of you bloggers are cruel! Your utterings are evil! How can you wish for someone to have a heart attack? That is the same as wishing someone dead! In the olden days you would have been branded a witch or wizard and burnt at the stake? God forgive you!

  15. Proper economic management is what. HH says he will reduce prices of mealie meal, create employment, bra bra. What these animals is talking about. Come out clean bululu and tell us exactly how you will reduce prices, create employment and so on. Lungu is on platform to say he will reduce prices of mealie meal by making sure that milling companies are localised and he says this will also create employment. He is also on record saying he will recapitalise ZR and so on. This is what we know by good economic management. What you are saying is a puzzle to most Zambian; even those who have an education up to college level. Make us understand what exactly you will do. You supporters of HH, advise him.

  16. Honestly LT editor how do you go to the toilet for 1 hour leaving behind blocked comments in your moderator? If you are too slow to read comments for approval why use moderation? very unprofessional and shame on you. what type of editor takes that long in the toilet any way? 1 hour? in a Zambian toilet? dont say i didnt warn you about how irrelevant you’re becoming. its now Mwebantu New Media for me.

    End of toilet break!Happy blogging-you are no longer under moderation but please adhere to our comments policy.

  17. We need to unite the country as one Zambia one nation.
    If PF has failed to reduce the price of meal meal,cement,groceries and fuel now what magic do they have to do things differently?

    If Lungu has failed to run his own companies and stole clients money what will happen to the national confers.

    If lungu team in Kabwe failed to articulate issues in Kabwe but insults only.
    PF has failed to pay farmers upto now what do you expect from them in 2015
    PF has failed to realize the constitution in 90 days
    PF has failed to lower taxes as promised what do we expect from them in 2015.
    PF has introduced thugs with Pangas moving freely in streets
    Lungu says he has no vision for this country what do you want to force him.
    Country men and women tribes have never developed the world.

  18. Mr H needs to answer the HOW? question now if he is to be credible. While some of his apologists argue that Mr H will not give us the answer to the ‘HOW’ question because his policies will be ‘stolen’ by the ruling party, this argument highlights a sinister aspect of his personality (the me complex) – he is the only one who can do it or no one at all. If he has all the answers to our national challenges, then it is his patriotic duty to give the nation the gift of his wisom? Could the truth be just that he has no idea of how to solve our problems? After all, he has no experience at this level. He might be a brilliant micro Economic Manager but he has not given us any costed policy pronouncements to demonstrate a grasp of the macro landscape for me to endorse him.

    • If you have not seen or understood the how , then you are simply not listening.

      1) manage the inflows.

      a) optimise tax regime from the mining sector. We have a all or nothing approach when it comes to taxing the mines. There is an equilibrium where it’s good for the investor and it’s good for the country. We have to hit that sweet spot. The PF drunkards will not have the sobriety or the expertise . To critically analyse the profit and loss of and investment returns of these mines to ensure we tax the mother hen without killing. Just like PF is doing now.

      b)improve local value add component s in the extractive industry. Not based on chibululu like we doing now but based on fairness.(to be continued)

  19. Ba mutati mulefwayafye icintu.We can’t vote for you in the name of UPND.U sold mines through HH and your elder brother Mutati.Why should u give u another chance of selling Zamtel Sata got for us?For me i’m busy campaigning coz i can’t let zambia to be autioned by HH and Mutati.These guys are capitalists known for making money through selling govt property.Mutati knows why he is supporting HH.The brother of Mutati were together with HH when selling mines.kikikiikii voting for HH?Can’t never otherwise zambia will be sold and trabalism will be too much in zambia bcoz HH joined politics through tribalism.Where is Sakwiba,Chinsanga patrick in UPND?All gone coz it was publiucly prounouced that UPND could only be led by a Tonga.I fear for my country to allow such a bitter n pompous person…

  20. So Felix Mutati has been hired to repair the damaged image of bantustans? Canvassing for votes in Northern, Luapula, Muchinga, Central, Copperbelt and Lusaka provinces by HH is like drawing water using a sieve (ukutapila amenshi mulunyungo). Mutati knows deep down his heart HH can’t win. When results of elections start filtering in by 22 hours on 20th January 2015, Mutati and a pack of other unprincipled MMD MPs who are supporting HH will cry na chalinkolele. It is understandable, those who served in the corrupt MMD government had their stealing spree cut short in 2011. With their stolen loot being depleted and the pangs of hunger being felt, desperation set in for a comeback. But with the dwindling fortunes of MMD, They saw the gallivanting HH as their liberator but all is in vain.

  21. Ba Mutati if you have no confidence in your party disband it. It is not about winning. It is about keeping your party afloat. What message are you sending to us about your party?

  22. Mr. Mutati, I was in your constituency (at Mukupa Kaoma) last week and most the people I talked to in your constituency are wondering if MMD is now UPND! They want to know if they can drop MMD for UPND because your election to parliament was based on their love for MMD.

  23. I have the skills to ignore myself. Am I bragging? Chuckle.

    Brag away campaigners. If you can’t boast, roast, toast and host then don’t expect anyone to hear you most.

    Tis the season to brag, boast, lie, spread amnesia, promise the world on a copper platter etc. Campaign time is silly season.

    Ultimately, one will be chosen. I have little love for the incumbents but as they promised not to make promises and are already breaking that I expect they’ll be bragging with the best soon enough. Chuckle.

  24. Voting for Pipo who sold mines teti baba.Reasons
    1.Mutati’s brother sold mines with HH
    2.Mutati stole money at zesco
    3.HH came into politics through tribalsim
    4.MMD wants to be back through UPND and sell Zamtel,Zesco and Finance bank
    5. Musokotwane stole 1000 bicycles
    6.HH is surrounded by finished politicians who said he didn’t want recycled politicians.Therefore HH can’t be trusted.
    7.HH has made a deal with boars in south Africa to buy zambian mines.Boars are brutal and Zambia will regret

    Anyway PF is winning coz we are now happy to be zambians.Viva EL.Bakabolala teti tubabwesha mu power.

  25. Politics of unrealistic empty promises! Alot has been said by presidential aspirants to win support from electorates. Some of the aspiring presidents are promising to reduce the price of fuel, mealie meal, pay monthly salary of K1,000 to each and every person who is not in formal employment! But they are not telling us how that will be done! These are just mare speculations that have no substance. Never expect any change when such people are ushered into office. It is not their money that they will be using to realize all the promises that they are telling us. Cheap politicking at play!!!

  26. Mutati lacks principle. U cannot be MMD and be campaigning for UPND. Even a child knows that fipubafye who can do such. These judas escariots have expelled theselves from MMD. Ubupuba !!Even dogs would know on which side to be wen foxes are around.
    Shame ifimabwa ifi

  27. Politics of the belly at play. Hon Mutation and co were in the MMD government which oversaw self enrichment through corruption, taking business plans from locals which became blueprints for Chinese companies in which these officials then accepted shares. Check Youtube. The brown envelope phenomenon was their invention. How can HH accept them into his party? This just confirms the information that the South African cartel is pushing to bring together all those of the same feather. God save us!

  28. Those who are trying to tarnish LT are hypocrites. LT is one of the most balanced news websites. They cover everyone fairly, including HH. This is unlike ZWD who clearly support HH, and demonise people like EL. So LT continue with your incredible balanced reporting.

  29. EKA RALLY AKO BA HH.LEKENI LUNGU NGA ABOMA KU MAFUKENI MUKAMWENAKO BAMUKUKULU.THOSE SUPPORTING HH ARE CORRUPT LEADERS WHO FAILED TO CHANGE THE FOTUNES OF POOR ZAMBIANS WHO CANNOT EVEN MANAGE TO HAVE THREE MEALS A DAY,SO WHAT IS IT THAT THEY CAN CHANGE THAT THEY FAILED DURING THEIR REIGN.BAMAMBALA YA KUDIOKOLANI NJALA.UYO HH MUSAPOTA SAZAKAWINA.

  30. MY BROTHER HH IS ONLY SURROUNDED BY CAPITALISTS WHO HAVE BOUGHT EVEN WATER BODIES IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE ON LAKE KARIBA. THESE ARE CHAPS WHO WANTS TO CONTINIOUSLY COLONIZING ZAMBIANS THROUGH THEIR WEALTH WHICH THEY ACCURED DUBIOUSLY BY PRIVITIZING OUR ASSETS. ZAMBIA CAN ONLY SEE FAIR SHARE OF ITS RESOURCES THROUGH THE PF WHO HAVE ATLEAST TRIED TO TAKE ROADS, SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS TO ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. CAPITALISTS ALWAYS HIDES IN THE ECONOMETRICS AND BOASTS OF FIGURES ON PAPERS WITHOUT EQUITING BENEFITS TO THE MASSES. ONLY A FEW LIKE HH, DIPAK, MUTATI AND MAUREEN WOULD WANT THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR SO THAT THE MASSES ARE ABUSED THROUGH THEIR QUESTIONABLE WEALTH. THIS IS THE MOTIVE DRIVING THE MMD MP’s BECAUSE THEY ARE USED TO THIEVING!

  31. People like mutation, musokotwani are very experienced politicians you want it or not. They will work together with HH to try and transform the mess that has been dumped by PF .

    Viva HH 2015.
    Baunze

  32. Let these MP go and experience searching for jobs in the economy which they created. They were part of the failed leadership. They should not be rewarded for poor performance. By jumping from one political party to another at the drop of a hat, they have no honest governing agenda. They are just looking for a job.
    We already know and have experienced that 50 years of doing the same thing (same policies and politicians) and expecting a different outcome is the true definition of INSANITY.

  33. HH has no skills to offer Zambia, the structural unemployment Zambia has experienced in the last 20 years are the results of his poor ‘skills’ at handling the privatisation of national assets!
    And Zambians should not be cheated that HH will change anything, UPND do not have enough members in parliament to sponsor any law and expect it to pass. In multi party state, a President is only effective if his party controls parliament. This election can be a career ender for HH, 2 years is too short a time to have any influence in parliament with minority MPs. If he wins, in 2016 I doubt if people will vote for a ‘homage’ President from a minority party who could not do anything he promised.

  34. I have more respect for the people who stays with their political party.

    Fix your own party, HH has been building this party and now you want to all act like you are now BFFs because he looks like he is winning?

    I would like to see a new party in power with new people.

  35. PF will carry the day on 20th January, 2014 thereafter Mutati will be expelled from MMD! Equally HH will be removed from UPND president to give chance to others in UPND to rebrand the party.

  36. HH please be very CAREFUL WITH THESE MMD MPS. The Zambian people rejected them in 2011. You very well know this. See what they are doing to their own party MMD. The damage they have done to RB and Nevers, they could easily do to you in times of need.

  37. So Mutati was cheating h.e. m.c. sata when he was parroting his corridors looking for support for international job. How can he today and so soon start calling for destruction of other parties by enticing MPS to leave their respective parties? Was he truly a friend of SATA? This is why it is difficult to find people who are die hards in this world ooohhh. To many eyes Mutati was the option of NEVERS MUMBA. Alas , he has shown his tru colors. UPND may cry the loudest with some exoduses happening.

  38. This is foolishness at its best. You have a party and a presidential candidate but yet you are busy campaigning for someone else. and Mutati calls himself an intellectual bull****. All these MMD chaps even Maureen Mwanawasa these are just political prostitutes. Maureen’s Family is supporting PF her she is support UPND. what confusion. At least the Sata family were for the same camp. Maureen must go back and look after her family and resolve and heal the relationships. they are embarrassing the Mwanawasa’s name by fighting and differing in public. Mutati failed whilst he was in government with his MMD they have nothing to offer. I am not a UPND supporter or sympathizer but HH must not be fooled or blinded by these werewolves in sheep clothing.

  39. Ba Mutati mwatumweneshamo! Politics of the stomach at play. Nalumango has resurrected from the tunnel to look for employment in UPND, what has happened to your party MMD?

  40. “Sebana WIKUTE” TYPE OF POLITICS AT PLAY!!!! lack of principles to most politicians! Bamuselela kwakaba who cannot be trusted. They can even sell themselves to earn a living! Shame!!!
