President Lungu is governing without a plan-Wynter Kabimba

Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba has charged that President Edgar Lungu has struggled in his first six months at State House because he is governing without a plan.

And Mr Kabimba has claimed that President Lungu intends to call for an early general election with the intention of catching the opposition unprepared.

Mr Kabimba said the numerous inconsistencies in the Lungu administration is confirmation that he went into State House without a clear plan on how to run the country.

He said President Lungu is running a Chipantepante government which has lamentably failed the Zambians.

In his key note address to delegates at the Rainbow Party first ever national congress in Lusaka on Saturday, Mr Kabimba said President Lungu is failing to deliver on his numerous campaign promises because he lacks an ideological standing.

He also observed that the Patriotic Front is now similar to all the many political parties due to failure to distinctively distinguish itself.

‘These political parties seem to speak the same language. They are not any different? Why don’t they just come together so that we defeat them properly?’ Mr Kabimba questioned as the delegates cheered him on.

He added, ‘If you listened to the campaigns, they all said they will reduce the price of mealie meal. If they all wanted to reduce the price of mealie meal, why didn’t they just come together because they had similar messages. It is six months now and we have not seen the price of mealie meal reducing.’

Mr Kabimba said the Rainbow Party is the only political party that will restore people’s hope and bring about fundamental changes in the manner government is administered.

‘We are not a reformist political party, we are a revolutionary party that is going to fundamentally and principally transform the country. We are not going to do that by simply changing the band aid, we are going to cut off the arm,’ he stated.

Mr Kabimba claimed that President Lungu is preoccupied with staying in State House and has since launched campaigns for re-election.

‘If they call for early election as they intend to do, let them find that the voter has a clear understanding of what the Rainbow Party intends to do to transform the nation. No amount of voter bribery can hoodwink an enlightened voter,’ Mr Kabimba said.

‘Let them make a mistake of calling an early election, they will be shocked. They think an early election will shock us, they will shock themselves, looking at the number of delegates here, it means we are ready for an election.’

    • Not telling Zambians what Rainbow would have said if it were part of the campaign. Only one party was elected into government and you can not hold the opposition responsible for failure of the party in government to lower the cost of mealie meal.

      Socialism was tried and failed world over and you are not letting in on how you will reform this failed ideology into success.

      And please, put only enough in your mouth so that you are able to chew, dealing with the part in government is a challenge in itself; do not add and take on the opposition as well. You are temporarily on the same side.

    • I will not vote for Lungu if he does not complete my road from Kasama, Isoka, Muyombe, Chama, Lundazi, Chipata. I want to be using it when visiting my cousins in Chipata

    • For sure its chipantepante! It is Mr Lungu who said that he is visionless & that FACT has proven itself.

      Mr. Kabimba is stating facts as acclaimed by visionless Lungu, aka Jameson! The ECONOMY & KWACHA is embrowned yet one Lungu is back in South Africa for medication. He would have saved Tax payers if he went to UTH or Maina Soko for the purported “review”?

      South African economy is above stable, one Lungu must come back to fix the deteriorated ECONOMY & KWACHA. There is more to life & leadership than drinking Jameson & medical tourism. PF has lambently FAILED!

      The visionless at the helm of leadership, off course by the way PF failures are going, its CHIPANTEPANTE!

      13 months left, PF is finally & democratically voted out.

      The Skeleton Key
      ~206~

    • Socialism failed in Russia which is probably the richest country on earth and then Kabimba and Fred Mmembe are hallucinating that Zambia can afford to support socialism. Ask us who spent many years in Russia and the west and can tell you never to try socialism but rather embress capitalism with some social elements.

    • Not surprised this coming from someone who publicly admitted that he chokes and wishes PF fail in everything they do.

      So one would think that if LUNGU is governing without a plan then Kabimba must not complain. But rather rejoice.

      In essence, Kabimba is leading and governing his party without plans.

      Because he does not know what he is talking and stands for.

      We know that this will hurt Summer/Winter to his death. He had high hopes of taking over from Sata.

      However, he went to bed with the wrong Chiiiick, in Mmembe and got burnt.

    • Iam a very well respected political analyst. I told you last year that HH would win by more than 51% and I spelled out the only reason he would fail to do that and that’s the involvement of RB.Lungu had clearly lost the 2015 elections had RB stood.It took Lombe Chibesa Kunda to change that and the courage of Inonge wina to manipulate the PF convention and latter Priscilla Isaacs to rig the 2015 election.The counting took almost 5 days to manipulate the election.In 2016 things will change we expect a splinter group of the true Greens (Bembas)to take on Lungu and Kabimba’s Rainball party punching serious hole in PF and UPND.I certainly see PF and UPND face to face and Kabimba will be the decider. I don’t think Kabimba is a threat to HH but Lungu.If you are using the game theory HH is…

    • Can Imagine what he would do if elected as Zambian President…. let him Join HH, then he can get his justice post back.. arrogance is the problem with Wynter..

    • There goes Sido Mark with his usual rumblings! Are you sure the elections were rigged with your indian guy doing the PVT? You really never cease to amaze, what do you smoke kansi okay whatever it is please refrain you dung beetle!

  1. This is not the way to go Kabimba. You have started on the wrong footing. Just market your party policies without giving unsubstantiatable speculations about early elections. Outline your intentions and vision if you have any bearing in mind that Rome was not build in a day . Your bitterness on PF and Lungu is well documented. Good luck.

  2. This guy really dreams big sure,if a party and constituency can deny you,how about a whole country? whoever lies to this guy that he would one day form government is to blame.

    • Give him enough rope……Mmembe is cheating this guy….they did for satas pf and dreams for a repeat with Kabimba….good luck as elungu dismantles the parallel structures of dcs and shushushus…

    • zamcab

      You have made the point very clear my brother, however his freedom to go that way is also legal. I just wish him success in whatever dream this is.
      EL has it easy for 2016 coz Rainbow has come to kill upnd. I only see rainbow dividing upnd in Southern province and a fragmented crowd in Copper-belt province.
      Good luck …abakali tabalopa…tabalekapo fye..

  3. Its so sad to note that people are just blogging without giving much thought to what kabimba is saying & tslking about.plan is all one needs before trying to get the mandate to rule this country.the way rainbow has started speaks volumes about how this party is going to grow.even PF did the same when sata was rediculed about how he was never going to rule this country,but alas,it happened in the years that followed & where did all that leave all those who were saying bad about sata? The rest remains for you to digest.

    • The political history of both Sata and Kabimba is well documented.On one hand,Sata managed to win all his parliamentary seat elections wherever he stood.
      Regrettably,Kabimba has had hard times trying to win any parliamentary elections.He has not won any as it stands now.I strongly wish Winter BAD LUCK using his own words on PF.

  4. Please ba PF comment here, if you know what Lungu’s plan is. As for rainbow party, it still has a long way to go. But his determined this man, I wil give him that.

    • Lungu has become President of Zambia on the back of PF which won power in 2011.It has a well articulated Manifesto which the government is obliged to follow.
      Other than this plan,what other plan should President Lungu propagate.His only role is to ensure that the PF programmes are executed in the most cost and time sentive manner which happily he is doing.

    • @ FUNDING:

      We started seeing your advertisement yesterday or the other day. Please be clear with where u are found. Are you in Zambia or in other countries?.
      People saw you posting but ignored it because a lot fear to be swindled bcoz 3% interest is just too little and rises a lot of suspicion. At least 5 to 10%. Remember, you should not advertise in order to swindle people.

      And lastly, people have expressed interest in going for your loans, but the question is that are you not trying to swindle people? If not then your loans have hidden interest rates.

      Many of us would like to go for your loans, but we don’t know whether you are a registered money lending institution in our country,

      Lastly provide us with your phone numbers so that we can easily contact you.
      I Thank You.

  5. I was also informed that some of scrupulous adviser of President Lungu has advised him to call for an early election so that he can win.

    He was advised that if he doesn’t do that, then he will be defeated by HH. Latest survey indicates that 65.8% of Civil Servants are sad with Edgar Lungu for not fulfilling his campaign promises of having 55 as the retirement age. The poor Lungu campaigned on having 55 as the retirement age but changed colors immediately after elections.

    The president seem to have inherited all demons of failures from Rupiah Banda including that of loosing elections despite bribing voters.

    President HH and President Kabimba can make better presidents than the sick, drunkard and backward kachasu man.

    Vote for Lungu if you want poverty.

  6. CHEAP POLITICS. WHO DOES NOT KNOW THAT OUR PRESIDENT DIED AND LUNGU IS JUST CONCLUDING SATA’S DREAM. WAIT SOON LUNGU WILL ANNNOUNCE HIS VISION AND THAT WILL BE THE END OF THIS CHEAP POLITIKING. REMEMBER HIS REAL TERM STARTS NEXT YEAR FOR 5 YEARS. ABASH RAINBOW!!!

    • @ OSUFISA

      But to tell the truth my friend you must be insane or a full time embicile who even went upto Grade 9.
      I mean a nomal person can not speak like that supporting Edgar Lungu when 84% of Zambians do not want him.

      You must be born as a result of high class incest. I mean you are confused.

      Why dot you just commit suicide if you failed to cope up with the fast changing world.

      Zambians today want HH to be in State House not your fellow imbacile you are talking about.

      Last warning. Next time please comment with wisdom.

    • @ OSUFISA

      You are a very stupit person. How dare you support Lungu when you know many Zambians hate him.

      Very folish man. You must be a confused person you fail to provide for your wife and children.

      If i knew were you stay, i would have come for you and discipline you.

  7. POLITICS IN ZAMBIA NOW IS BETWEEN PF AND UPND. RAINBOW IS NOT A FACTOR AT ALL, MAY BE IT WILL AFTER 2020. AND BETWEEN PF AND UPND, MOST ZAMBIANS NOW WANT UPND TO FORM THE NEXT GOVERNMENT. THE UPND GOVERNMENT IS COMING INTO POWER AFTER 2016 GENERAL ELECTIONS. VIVA UPND VIVA! UPND IS THE ONLY PARTY THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIMES, AND IS NOW MATURE TO GOVERN OUR COUNTRY.

    • @ TRUTH

      Thanks brother for supporting HH the son of the soil.

      Edgatr Lungu is a foreigner from Malawi.

    • Foolish just say tongas want HH and UPND in 2016 as usual. But be assured that he will tumble for the fifth time. Rain bow party will fight it out with Nawakwi for a third slot.

    • UPND/HH supporters fail to see the bigger picture. Most Zambians do not relate to HH. B y virtue of my job, where I manage operations of my company in the Northern region of Zambia comprising the following provinces, i.e. CB, NW, NP MP & LP, I travel through all these areas. Apart from NWP, all the other areas have small pockets of HH supporters. It is a psychological factor that most ordinary citizens do not relate with HH. They see him as a rich man with a dream of being president who barely understands their needs. This image plus the cumbersome UPND image of being a party for southern province are still very big factors in UPND and HH’s presidential ambitions.
      There is great need to dismantle both images and I could easily help the UPND with this especially in Muchinga and Northern.

  8. @ HILDA MALAMA and DANNY, you are just one person, ukane olo usakane. chikubabe olo iyayi, next year its Lungu all the way. watch this space, by the way i support FDD, but i know that its Lungu’s time.

    • It is a rainbow party, they are gay and imaginative, so don’t blame their wayward fantasy of winning the 2016 elections!

  9. Don’t worry Zambians are f900lish they will vote for you. So many delegates already hoodwinked …..lost souls, what a country of dundaheads

  10. Its good Mr. Kabimba finally has a congress to legitimise the party. So far he is the best among the oppositions due to his previous record when it comes to holding the party together.

    Congratulations sir and we are behind this mighty party.

    • Haaaa awynter you are borrowing what HH said about you under Sata he called your then leader CNP try and be original. That’s why you have never won a case in court cheap council lawyer. We haven’t forgotten how for a few pieces of silver you sold a council house to a foreigner in Lubu road Rodger V Lee from Hong Kong it was against sale of council houses regulations you can be arrested mulandu si u bola

  11. I have just read another stewpid comment ati people want hh , another one ati 84% have denied lungu. its laughable indeed.
    Hhahahahahah you must be in the same dream with kabimba to think that you can manage to defeat mighty pf.

  12. What do you expect from Easterners, who only know how to chance for presidency. RB and EL, they can not form their own parties and form government.

    • And just that makes you very bitter?…cretin! Rainbow is not going anywhere, Wynter is the most hated even by his own in his own village! Sorry, sad but true!

  13. Its laughable! Over-ambitious Kabimba says even if elections are called today, its all systems go judging by the attendance of the delegates. It reminds me of Kenya’s 2013 elections where a similar overanxious candidate got ZERO votes in his runningmate’s polling station meaning even his runningmate had no confidence in him and opted to vote for another candidate. Not all those delegates are serious. Some are just joyridders. The electorate is the determining factor. Surely Sata could not have spared you if you so desperately yearn for the top seat. Reduce the urge and maintain your pace or else your dream just remains so, a dream.

  14. KAMIBIA YOU WHERE IN PF SO YOUARE TELLING US YOU NEVER MADE A PLAN WITH MR SATA WHEN IN PF.BITTERNESS IS CHOKING YOU IT WILL SOON KILL YOU.VIVA HAMBLE MAN OF THE PEOPLE EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU.COME 2016 NI KOLOPA.COM

  15. You can use the money you stole from the people to buy attires and book a venue, that does not make you a political party.
    You have less membership than Miracle Life Church.

    • Weufwila ukufwa insoni niwee who will lose again in 2016! Politicians are the same and all UPND politicians want is for them to come and also have a share of the moment. We won’t allow the likes of them enter state house however much you insult us, call us ignorant, kaponyas and other unpalatables. When we are not happy about an item we push for changes within the PF! SO ukutu convincer patali sana!

  16. Malabish! just look at the faces in the crowd, wonder how much he has paid to get all these people to attend his makeshift convention? Most useless politician Zambia ever produced. Muliokela can do a better job than this clown.

  17. At 55 people generally still have the energy to carry on with working, is it just a cry to lazy out? What must happen is that GRZ must not delay paying retirement benefits so that at 65 people start enjoying them immediately …NOT retiring them at 55 and then spend the next 15 years borrowing money to chase them benefits.

  18. Honestly speaking, the PF need to pull up their socks. The manifesto and party structures of the PF were established by Wynter Kabimba, not to mention the strategy for winning the 2011 elections. Ignoring Wynter Kabimba will be to the PF’s own cost. The RB & MMD factor is really doing a deservice to PF and the earlier they abandon it, the better as they will not win the 2016 elections with that baggage. Furthermore the lack of clear strategy on unemployment and the cost of living is also not sitting well with the majority people. Wynter Kabimba is ahead of the game by releasing his manifesto for debate by the citizens while no other party is currently providing a plan on how to address the challenges facing the people. Mark my words Wynter has won an election before and will do it…

    • Winter has failed to field any candidate at ward or constituency levels. How can he win the big one. Even Muliokela is better than Winter.

    • Where is his manifesto?
      ….
      Wow wow wow Wynter, you really said this?..”They think an early election will shock us, they will shock themselves, looking at the number of delegates here, it means we are ready for an election.”
      ….
      Yeah, well just as participants yes your are ready. You will be one of them jokers who just waste ECZ’s time by submitting your pictures for the ballot paper!

    • We knew that Winter put his people in key positions of the party.
      We are not stupid and we have dismantled his structures,starting with not renewing contracts for his proteges whom he appointed DCs.Elections of new office office bearers have put to and end to his idea of using PF structures to win the elections.He knows that too.

    • WINTER WON AN ELECTION WITH SATA’S FACE ON IT. ON HIS OWN, WINTER IS UNSELLABLE. HE IS EVEN NOT SUPPORTED BY HIS OWN RELATIVES. ONE OF HIS NIECES AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS FIRING FROM PF STATED THAT, THIS MAN IS DIFFICULT EVEN WITHIN THE FAMILY, NO WONER HE HAS BEEN FIRED.

  19. The so called ‘delegates’ of his, are they not the same Tanzanians he smuggles into the country? In their uniform, the delegates remind me of inmates.

  20. Kabimba: “If they all wanted to reduce the price of mealie meal, why didn’t they just come together because they had similar messages”.

    Can’t understand this economic logic by Rainbow. Is Kabimba telling us that he will increase the prices of mealie meal then? If not, then is he telling us that he should have joined the rest of the parties who want to reduce mealie meal prices?

    A bad start indeed ba Rainbow, I can’t imagine a party which wants to increase prices of staple food ever winning an election in Zambia in the past, now, or in future, whether socialist, capitalist, or no ideology party.

  21. A bad start on democratic credentials too. Kabimba had already annointed himself President, and no one could challenge him if they wanted to continue as member of Rainbow. “Democratic dictatorship” is a hallmark of all communist parties, for that is what Rainbow and Kabimba are in reality but hiding behind nice and innocent sounding terms like socialism for the gullible. Also, the way he condemns PF, as if he was not a proud one of them barely nine months ago before he was unceremoniously kicked out! Same as when PF came to power with Kabimba’s tail high, they wanted us to forget that they were once MMD when policies were made, but remembered to take credit even for projects initiated by MMD!

  22. NANGU MUTWEBA AT NI PARTY YABAKAPONYA AT LEAST WE ARE BETTER THAN RAINBOW PARTY AND UP an down (upnd) IYA BA KACHEMA OR SATANISTS.

  23. @Danny and Hildah Malama are really lunatics!!!THESE TONGAS WILL KILL THEMSELVES IN 2016!!WHICH 84% ZAMBIANS HATE EDGAR LUNGU?PLUS WHICH ZAMBIANS WANT HH?hey you guys in UPND must be objective in life!!PF is very strong under ECL and u can deny this fact at your own peril!!even the 3 by elections on 30/06/2015 PF may win all 3 while in Bangweulu dont even waste your time by fielding a candidate bcoz PF will 100% retain it.SO WHERE DO U GET YOUR DATA?IF YO MUCHELEKA LOSE HIS SEAT IN SUPREME COURT,THAT WILL BE HIS END BCOP PF WILL WIN IN CASE OF A BY ELECTION IN LUBANSENSHI!!!WAIT FOR KOLOPA.COM IN 2016!!
