THE Patriotic Front (PF) has given Chongwe member of Parliament (PF) Sylvia Masebo a seven-day ultimate in which to exculpate herself of allegations of bringing the name of the party into disrepute.
The seven-day period expires today.

PF secretary-general Davies Chama said in an interview yesterday that he wrote to Ms Masebo on February 16 this year to answer allegations of bringing the party into disrepute, using disrespectful language to President Lungu and campaigning against the party.

Last month, Mr Lungu suspended Ms Masebo as PF chairperson for elections for alleged gross indiscipline and replaced her with Emmanuel Mpakata.

“We are waiting for her to exculpate herself because we have already written to her. We wrote to her last week on Monday,” Mr Chama said.

He said although it has been difficult to locate Ms Masebo, the ruling party has asked her to clear her name.

Mr Chama said Ms Masebo’s case will be referred to the disciplinary committee of the central committee, which will decide her fate after the expiration of the seven-day ultimatum.

Efforts to get a comment from Ms Masebo yesterday were futile.

Prior to the January 20 presidential election, Ms Masebo endorsed the candidature of United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema.

Ms Masebo told her supporters at one of the rallies to vote for Mr Hichilema because electing Mr Lungu would be a waste of votes.

She also said Zambians would regret for the rest of their lives if they voted for Mr Lungu and accused him of destroying the PF.

    • LUNGU HAS STOLEN PF PARTY AND HAS TRANSFERRED IT FROM NORTHERN PROVINCE TO EASTERN PROVINCE. WE INVITE ALL THE BEMBAS TO NOW JOIN UPND AND SUPPORT THE TONGAS SO THAT THEY TOO ARE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO RULE ZAMBIA FOR TWO TERMS, AFTER WHICH THEY TRANSFER POWER TO OTHERS LIKE THE NORTH-WESTERNERS AND THE WESTERNERS. WE NEED A FARE GAME THIS TIME AROUND IN POLITICS. POLITICAL DOMINANCE SHOULD BE ABASHED! SYLVIA IS A VICTIM OF LUNGU’S VINDICTIVE AND HEARTLESS BEHAVIOR. COME TO UPND. VIVA UPND VIVA!

      If that really is your idea of demoracy then you are truly gullible.

      We both know, once Tongas get a grip in a 2 term gov’t they’d never leave! And what’s more they’d create havoc in Zambia. Break up the country. Increase of violent Tribalism.

      By the sound of you and your fellow bloggers who go down this route, we would have very harsh treatment at your hands. Democracy is NOT the satisfaction of the minority against the majority.

      Since gov’t is still somewhat Bemba top heavy, I think they’ll stick with PF despite the so called move from North to East.

      Join us please, in creating a peaceful Zambian Gov’t. Change your mentality; being mean and ugly is hard work. Take a break like Scott and Masebo in that picture. Look around at the beauty of…

  2. I listened to Silvia Masebo speak at many UPND Rallies, I must admit that she is right when she brags that she is a self made politician. She is shrewd, useful and very resolute.

    PF will expel Masebo at its own peril. Whatever the difference, just reconcile.

    She said ” Imwe Ma Zambians muni dabwisa sure. Edgar ni mapezeka naye mu Parliament, bushe munanvela ko ati akamba vanzelu muparliamenmt elo vachoka napa TV or mu newspaper? Every time Edgar spends only 20 minutes mu parliament, ninshi ayenda ku tarven ya mu parliament!”

    Zambia will be destroyed, she said at a UPND rally in Woodlands

    • @3 chanda Chilengu,

      Ulichinangwa iwe. Who told you that to be an effective leader you have to be a motormouth? Smart people are thinkers and concise in their brief or short speech. Americans say talk is cheap.

      There is no such thing as a self made politician.

      Politicians in Central gov’t take up their roles first and foremost AFTER being granted favour by the citizens of the country in elections. Grubby Masebo is delusional. She was driven by her greed and spite. That can never produce good fruit.

  3. Sylvia Masebo a librarian by profession long lost her marbles when she met one Dick car and drug dealer, as a Zimbabwean looking for fame Zed made her day…she snack into the bossom of politics and found comfort in one wynter once she had her fix she moved on to bigger fish…when RB tumbled she found a new lease of life..but as usual messed up and was only saved by summer kabimba from answering charges for loot eaten during the conference in picture above…

    • Boza baba her mom was a councillor in Chongwe, Masebos mother was well established and connected in politics way before Sylvia joined politics. Other than politics Mrs Tembo was a very successful and respected commercial farmer.

      I think your Freudian slip is on point. She literally ‘snack-ed’ her way into PF! Look how ungainly and fat she looks. For someone on high pay and afforded all facilities, you’d think she’d look better and be a sartorial example to the citizenry. Those tight pants leave much to be desired.

      She couldn’t have snuck in……her tits would have jammed in the door way!

    • When LPM passed on she began her fainting and ‘sided’ with Peter Magande not RB so naturally he removed her as Minister, after more fainting she only come to the fore to discredit RB…she only come to the voting centre having lost her seat after PF had won…oh and we not speaking about Mrs. Tembo Sylvia’s half sisters are well know she is from Zims….

    • Easily, the same way Lungu holds two positions – President and defense minister. Tell him to give up a position, stop being greedy, and let someone else make money.

  5. Masebo is no longer a pf member so even expelling her would not make sense. I do not know if there is such a vocabulary as political prostitution.

  8. PF is scared of letting go of her cos they fear losing Chongwe seat to the opposition. Remember in the just ended presidential by election UPND beat PF in Chongwe. HH got 7252 votes and Lungu pulled 6124.

    • Lungu is now the head of state so the picture on the ground in Chongwe has completely changed. Remember Masebo lost to Mwakalombe if it was not for Mr Sata Masebo would have been history by now.

  9. Rain bow is an after thought party. Let them try with the up coming parliamentary elections. A Party formed out of hate and by a political failure Like Kabimba is doomed to fail.

  10. Masebo is a super politician. she will continue being a parliamentarian even after 2016.

    Some of the monkeys calling for expulsion will not be there after 2016.

    UPND is popular in all the peri urbans of Lusaka, east, west, south and North. We are making in roads into Lusaka main stream contituencies.

  11. Ms Masebo is the prettiest woman in Zambia.
    She is an astute politician, she can woo voters, and extricate their votes. PF will be wise to keep her. Use her in an advisory role. She has a gold deposit (CHUMBWE MINE) in her constituency. Opening up that mine, could reduce Zambia’s dependence on copper.

    • Permalink, government does not need anyone`s authority to move in on any peace of land to access gold, copper or emeralds.

      Clearly Masego has control of the Soli voters. She is a strong and well vissioned person or leader. But indiscipline should never be condoned either in a home, church ,party or any organisation. The people who did that in the opposition or ruling party should be disciplined accordingly.

      If such people feel they are above discipline, they should be expelled regardless of whether they have the potential to re-contest and recapture their seats. An action like that would create restraint in people contemplating similar moves.

      Silvia is one person that could have contested for PF presidence in 2016 given her capacity. But indiscispline on her part remains her…

  12. PF be careful with Syvia. You will leak your own wounds. The man you are claiming beat her gave up the seat on his own. Do you know what transpired behind the scenes for him to give up?

  16. She has not replied, that is a continuation of her disdainful thinking on PF.

    One wonders why dignity through resignation is not understood by Zambian politicians. She clearly is confused and unable to bring herself round to eating humble pie under His Excellency. How can it work?

    Guy Scott and Masebo must be let go. A repeat of the venomous relations at last election will destroy PF for good. PF must shed off these individuals.

    It’s taking too long to resolve these matters. One must be incisive like a good surgeons knife.
