THE PERSON TO DEFEAT PF NOT BORN YET – SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE
Patriotic Front (PF) is not be intimidated by the terror of hate propagated by the infamous Cartel and bought into by a desperate Opposition in the Country. The Cartel’s idea is to cause panic in an economy under pressure, leading to panic buying by consumers thus causing “artificial shortages” of fuel. This, coupled with electricity shortages and a depreciating Kwacha, would further cause economic chaos. We urge Zambians to be alert and watch out for these “deliberate” rumours and speculations as economic sabotage and blackmail by UPND and cartel. We commend Energy Regulation Board (ERB) for responding efficiently to rumours of price increments! This is the specialization of the Cartel. They have no better message for Zambians except to vilify His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu. It is no wonder there mouthpieces are ending up with ridiculous press conferences because they have no better alternative expect messages of hate.
We are not the only ones with Mr. Hakainde Hichilema’s hollow Press Conference, which was also carried live on a named radio station. Mr. Hichilema believed Zambians were so docile as to believe his empty promises about a marshal plan for Zambia’s economy but ended up with a hollow press conference. We fail to understand how it could be that with all his education, Mr. Hichilema believes the load-shedding and weakening currency are a doing of President Lungu, a leader working hard to resolve the challenges. To prove that he is so detached from the challenges of the masses, he did not even know the price of bread and yet he claims to represent the common man.
Zambians would wish to recall that during the privatization of mines, Mr. Hichilema was given the role of looking at ZCCM’s Assets and it is a painful reality that these were sold so cheaply, without benefitting Zambians and this forms one of the major reasons the mining sector has never recovered. Mr. Hichilema participated in a process that made Zambia poorer. Zambians must ask whether the low valuations of their assets were deliberate or by accident. Zambians should ask if the country could not have been a better one had their assets been properly valuated. We put it to the Zambian people and without any malice that Mr. Hichilema’s must be judged on the basis of the valuation of Zambia’s assets and privatization, both processed which robbed the nation and condemned Zambians to abject poverty and squalor.
Lastly, it is our intention to put on record that PF will never be defeated by another political party currently existing in Zambia because they are not playing the role expected of them. It is not possible that PF can be shaken by political parties that have gone to bed with the cartel. PF will never betray Zambians, no matter the storm, the more reason we affirm that PF is here to stay. For the first time in the history of Zambia, we have Opposition parties in dire need of anger management informed by their realization that PF is indestructible and the person who is going to defeat the PF is not born yet.
