Republican President Edgar Lungu has been advised to be careful and avoid making radical decisions that will result in him creating many enemies during the period he will serve as the country’s Head of State.

Former Finance Minister Katele Kalumba has counseled President Lungu to remain cautious of the short time he has before seeking re-election in 2016.Dr. Kalumba told QFM News that it is important for the President to keep as many loyalists as possible ahead of 2016.

Dr.Kalumba noted that this is especially that on his way to the presidency, President Lungu went through a highly contested process in the Patriotic Front.He said this means that the President should also try to read politics within his own party before going into the 2016 general elections.

The former MMD National Secretary has further observed that the decision by President Lungu to appoint MMD Members of Parliament (MPs) in his Cabinet is a move which any political tactician would try to do.

Dr Kalumba said by making appointments of opposition MPs to his Cabinet, from two different regions, the President is in fact broadening his political support base.

    • We will show PF that we are their bosses in 2016 for the following reasons:

      1. The kwacha is weakened with the involvement of RB in political affairs 1$=k7.200
      2. Guy scot who is the pillar and founder of PF is sidelined
      3.People are getting fired by incompetent ministers like Chitundu from ZESCO
      4.Genuine members of the party are not recognized and respected by ECL-Rupiah camp

      We voted for PF hoping H.E Edgar C Lungu was goin to govern the country on Mr Sata Legacy and vision(M.H.S.R.I.P).

  1. Its good advice The President cant afford to make enemies within the short period in office through appointments and comments

    • Katele Kalumba sometimes issue good comments . I was just surprised how he could make such a big miscalculation in the recent polls. Any way I can not blame him age is fast catching up with him.

  2. So what is new here? What is the news? Confirming Edgar Lungu’s strategies or what? Katele, you would do better talking on how you are planning to win 2016 with UPND because that is a more important thing for you to do since you were UPND’s Campaign Manager in Luapula. We thought you joined to strengthen UPND because you believed in HH’s leadership but now you are confirming that Lungu’s strategies will win him the 2016 election! We thought you were there to help HH and UPND get the President .So was it just for a while when it looked a bit more likely in recent elections when PF was at its weakest? So, no long term approach but seasonal friendship!!

  3. Very wise advice!!!am sure Katele Kalumba has seen that helping Unsellable tribal HH wont do him any good!!!its better to help or advise ECL who is very very likely to retain power in 2016!!!THEY SAY IF YOU CANT BEAT THEM,THEN JOIN THEM OR ATI CINJA TEAM UKOLEWE!!IFINTU NI LUNGU!!!!

  4. Isn’t this the traditional/satanist laptop-carrying hombre, who, just before the recent presidential election, at which he strongly backed Icilema, gave it as his opinion that only a fool would vote for a PF candidate?

  5. That is good advise Dr Katele.

    H.E E.C.L should listen to this advise or else 2016 will catch up with him.

    This is not ideal time to turn your friends who helped you into enemies.

    Dont follow what RB is advising you because the advise RB is giving you is the one which costed MMD in 2011.

    He should not cry like chiyongoli!!!

    • The president is very much on course , he has sidelined no faithful member. I can see him winning 2016 polls comfortably.

  6. Katele knows that it is finished for HH.
    2015 was the closest HH had to win but he lost
    Being a former SG, he knows what EL is doing is surrounding and narrowing HH base
    Then with nega-nega formula HH is finished

  7. This is good advice even though it is coming from Katele.Sometimes it is good to listen to your opponents they may have a point.
    EL reputation and popularity is increasing by the day especially among the Rural people who did not know him in the first place.
    To me EL may just be lining himself for position of one of the best presidents in Zambia and indeed in Africa.

    • You don’t seem to have grey matter, if you know what that means. Which rural areas are you talking about? The kwacha has taken a Malaysian flight dive.

  8. Ba Katele today you can speak sense that you failed to articulate during campaign!! Do you want an appointment leaving your village headman ship!!!

  9. Katele just miscalculated in Jan. 20 elections. He behaved like Mangani who is regretting having left PF. Mangani should have stayed in PF and withfresh elections coming, he would have won back his seat as chairman for eastern province. His enemy, Kabimba, left before him. it was an opportunity for Mangani to remain in PF. Sad for you Mangani. Donot depend of advice from cadres, but also consult intellectuals who will give you objective advice.

  10. Katele, just concentrate on advising your HH-UPND. Have you changed caamp so soon . Ati ba lap top doctor ….full of miscalculations. Tell your HH that nega-nega formula is waiting for him.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

  11. Edgar told us he would preserve sata’s legacy but what i see is preservation of rupiah’s legacy. how do you get advise from someone people rejected and had it not been for the courts,rupiah would have taken eastern therefore, giving HH a clear win. what a shame

  12. First of all Katele has never been president. Second we voted Lungu to make decisions example what Sata legacy is that munshilumbulwa blogger pamulu talking about? Refusing to recognize chitimukulu? Lungu just had to. You don’t know politics. in fact lungu has not done much concerning guy scott. Sata sidelined guy scott. Scott is Rainbow party member who wanted pf out by all means he should have been expelled from pf by now. pf will pay for not doing so. Look bwana kalumba you said before election that only an insane person would vote for lungu.
