CHILUFYA TAYALI Executive Director The Zambian Voice

The Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali has said that United Party for National Development (UPND) does not have a clear ideology and manifesto like the MMD, NAREP, Rainbow Party which is proving relevant on the political scene.

In a statement released to the media today when he commented on President Edgar Lungu’s Speech to Parliament on Friday, Mr Tayali said that UPND is so personal because their ideology and manifesto is obscure and whimsy because it is drawn according to the emotions of the leader almost on the daily basis.

Mr Tayali further said that UPND is a party that is so intolerant of divergent views, adding that differing with the Party in opinion attracts attracts insults and violence and told the Party that they must realise that they cannot threaten or beat people to vote for them.

“The UPND must realize that they cannot threaten or beat people to vote for them, rather they irritate people and which brings hatred of the Party making them lose elections other than the rigging they talk about, ” he said.

Mr Tayali also told UPND to respect the right of the electorates to choose whoever they want rather than labelling them as foolish for having exercised their democratic right.

“Electorates have a right to their votes to choose whoever they want and they should not be called foolish for having exercising their rights as suggested in the way President Hakainde Hichilema (HH) does. ”

Below is the fill statement:

The Zambian Voice Press Statement on:

2016 REACTION TO PRESIDENT’S SPEECH

20th September,2015

As The Zambian Voice, we are finally delighted that the President comprehensively addressed the Nation through his speech in Parliament.

In the speech of the President, he first and foremost put Zambia on the Continental agenda by highlighting the African Union Agenda 2063 (“TO BUILD AN INTEGRATED, PROSPEROUS AND PEACEFUL AFRICA, AN AFRICA DRIVEN AND MANAGED BY ITS OWN CITIZENS AND REPRESENTING A DYNAMIC FORCE IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA,” ). This was important because we do not exist in isolation but are part of other African Countries which face similar challenges like us. Surely this justifies the International policy of the President to interact with other African leaders as well as beyond.

We are in support of this initiative to work with other African Countries and beyond. However, we would like to caution the President and his government to be prudent in their travels to make sure they engage in cost effective international ventures and limiting number of delegates

Drawing from the African Union agenda, the President formulated an inspiring theme, “EMBRACING A TRANSFORMATIONAL CULTURE FOR A SMART ZAMBIA NOW”. This is highly appreciated because it motivates Zambians to change their mindset and be more patriotic and hardworking. Zambians certainly need a change of mindset and we hope the President will not hesitate to discipline those that would be dragging the Country backwards especially his ministers.

The President did not speak in obscurity but gave 15 guideline as a check list. We embrace the 15 guidelines and implore all citizens to engrave them in their hearts and mind for us to change Zambia. (Please check for these guideline in the Presidential speech)

LOAD-SHEDDING

It is consoling to realize that the President is compassionately aware of the frustrations of Zambians emanating from load-shedding.

It gives hope to citizens to hear about government’s initiatives to sort out the load-shedding problems through importation of electricity from neighbouring countries, adjusting the price of electricity for commercial entities to attract increased investments in electricity generation and developing alternative sources of energy such as solar and promoting the use of energy efficient electric bulbs.
We also appreciate the president recognition of the poor by keeping low electricity tariffs for low income households.

COST OF LIVING

The President recognised the high cost of living due to exorbitant mealie-meal prices which will be mitigated by setting up of 13 milling plants across the Country. The milling plants will also create easy and accessible market for farmers. In addition employment will be created.

UNEMPLOYMENT

To address this problem the president revealed that government is actively pursuing the implementation of the industrialization and job creation strategy. Government is also implementing various empowerment schemes under the ministries different ministries.

However, as an organization we feel this is rather vague and we would like to recommend some serious study, consultation and clear employment policy which will deal with unemployment specifically. Most of the highly spoken about initiatives on job creation do not really create sustainable and respectful jobs for our people.

It must also be cautioned that the attitude of our ministry of labor to act as a union against employers is not healthy for investment because it does not encourage quality performance but emphasizes job security and high pay. Therefore, the ministry of labor needs to realize that without production there can be no more money for salaries and further investment which would create more employment.

ON BORROWING

The president gave assurance that the country is not sliding into a debt trap because our economy has grown from a USD$ 3 billion GDP in 2005 to a USD$ 28 billion today and we are well within the acceptable international threshold of 40% of the gross domestic product.

He also pointed out that government has borrowed mainly to finance roads, energy and infrastructure as a long term investment that will spur accelerated economic development across sectors. Enhanced economic development will create the needed capacity to meet our debt obligations.

He also reassured Zambians that Government will be able to pay back the loans without difficulties with the help of the establishment of a sinking fund.

However, we would like to caution to government. As at end of September, 2014, the total debt as a percentage of GDP stood at 30.1%. Of this, external debt stood at US$ 4.7 Billion or 17.85 % of GDP, whilst domestic debt stood at K20.45 Billion or 12.32% of GDP.

This year 2015 Government contracted another Eurobond of USD$ 1.25 Billion which increases External debt to USD$ 5.95 Billion or 21% of GDP. It can also be assumed that with the current maize purchase by FRA and other expenses, local debt has also increased.

However, working on the reported external debt and last year’s local debt, we can approximately put Zambia’s debt at 38% of the GDP. Certainly this should cause concern to the President and his Government.

We are also worried about the sinking fund initiative because the semantics of this meanings that we will be keeping away the surplus money for repayment of the debt. Unfortunately our deficit is on the increase, therefore it is paradoxical to talk about a sinking fund.

It must therefore, be put to government that, there should be no more borrowing, rather we would like to see the deficit being reduced especially in the next 2016 budget. More initiatives must be created on how to generate money to finance the on-going infrastructure development otherwise let them be halted.
However, we recognize that a lot has to be put into considerations because certain projects can prove to be a big loss if they are halted or not completed in time.

MILLENNIUM GOALS

The president addressed himself to the millennium goals of becoming prosperous and a middle income nation by 2030. To achieve this, the president setup seven thematic areas – diversification and sustainable development; infrastructure development; human capital development; democracy and good governance; gender and social protection; economic diplomacy, global partnerships and national defence; and culture re-modelling.

On diversification and sustainability the president reviewed that Zambia has recorded a growth of 6% of GDP in the last decade but could do better to about 10% GDP growth.

He also called for a smart economy which is characterized by access to capital, markets, talent, infrastructure and, reliable and predictable regulations.

In addition, much to our delight called for a functional culture and social networks and reiterated the words of late President Sata on the need to promote ethical behavior in public and private sectors anchored on zero tolerance to corruption.

AN EAGLES EYE VISION

While many people cried for a vision from President Lungu, he came in and gave an eagle’s eye vision which is far reaching, beyond his Presidency to plan for 50 years which coincides with African Union Agenda of 2063.

The President reviewed that the Zambia’s projected is 52.1 million people in 50 years. He therefore set his focus on growing the economy to sustain such a population. He said that Zambia needs to work on a double digit economic growth.

Surely this is highly applauded.

CREATION OF 5 MORE MINISTRIES

In order to realize his overreaching vision, the President pointed in the direction of promoting dynamic and strategically focused diversification and rapid growth by realigning our institutions to promote synergies in the planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and coordination of national programmes. This saw the creation of 5 more ministries by splitting some ministries and realignment which gives us this outlook:

1. Ministry of finance
2. Ministry of development planning;
3. Ministry of general education
4. Ministry of higher education;
5. Ministry of gender
6. Ministry of mines and mineral development
7. Ministry of energy and water development;
8. Ministry of works and supply
9. Ministry of transport and communication
10. Ministry of agriculture
11. Ministry of fisheries and livestock

While others might be concerned with the budget implication of this increase in ministries, we think efficiency is very necessary and we would rather pay to have it than otherwise. From our interaction with the civil servants, it was established that the realignment of President Sata in his quest to reduce ministries, a lot of confusion was caused at the ministries which brought in inefficiency.
Our only caution to Government would be that the two deputy ministers in one ministry should be a thing of the past to save on cost.

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP

The President recognizes the importance of the Private sector in his 2064 vision and we applaud the gesture. We only look forward to more Zambian participation in the private sector. Zambians must own the largest shareholding in companies for us to control the economy and forex exchange.
All over we appreciated the President’s commitment to empower Zambians through various initiatives and policies. We can only insist on engagement with all stakeholders on this point. Government should not assume the know-it-all attitude which has been the trend in the past.

GENERAL OPINION THE SPEECH

The speech was very inspiring and has a prospective future if it is supported by all citizens. The President set a National plan, a roadmap to guide all of us to the promised land of 2064.
Certainly with change of attitude, investment in power generation, industrialization, public-private partnership, good governance, international policy and prudent expenditure which the President alluded to should deliver the Zambian people from their current poverty squalor.
However, this can only be done if the 15 guidelines as prescribed by the President are adhered to. The speech was not for President Lungu, but for all of Zambia and it should be taken as a National agenda.

REACTION TO UPND ATTITUDES TO THE NATION AND ZV

The main objective of The Zambian Voice is to promote good governance, social justice and respect for human rights. Our motto is “One Voice in many languages”. We espouse to advocate in truth without bias or fear whatsoever

GOOD GOVERNANCE

Our work has not been easy because many times we face challenges, threats, insults, violence and intimidations from various stakeholders especially politicians. However, today we take great exception to the United Party for National Development (UPND).

It must be understood that Good Governance does not just entail the respect of the rule of law and human rights by these in government, but also those in opposition including ordinary citizens. Therefore, the work of ZV is to offer check and balances and guidance to all, especially the ruling party and political parties in waiting to form government.

Unfortunately the UPND wants to exclude itself from the respect of rule of law and respect for human rights in a guise of fighting for political power.

This is totally wrong and as a civil society organization it is within our mandate to condemn it.
We have observed that on a number of occasions the UPND especially the leadership tend to cause public disorder thereby endangering the life of their members and other ordinary members. This behavior has found most of the senior UPND before the police.

We do not support the Public Order Act (POA) if used to trample of on the citizen’s right to express themselves but not being voted in power is not tantamount to human rights abuse for people to start matching and running battles with the Police.

Electorates have a right to their votes to choose whoever they want and they should not be called foolish for having exercising their rights as suggested in the way President Hakainde Hichilema (HH) does.

We don’t want to be biased by ignoring or sympathizing with the UPND on their unjustified breaking of the law just to prove a point of bad governance to the outside world and their sponsors who they have been engaging locally and internationally. Indeed we are struggling economically but we are a peaceful nation and the only party that wants to cause civil strife in the UPND by their behavior and messages including some songs being sang by some sympathetic artists.

RESPECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

We have also observed and fallen victim of the UPND’s verbal and physical abuse. For the UPND, difference in opinion attracts insults and violence. They party is so intolerant of divergent views. This is not respect of human rights which includes freedom of expression. And the evidence is there especially from our point of view.

The UPND must realize that they cannot threaten or beat people to vote for them, rather they irritate people and which brings hatred of the Party making them lose elections other than the rigging they talk about.

For the UPND everyone is a sellout unless he/she sympathizes with them. But it must be borne in their minds that not everyone is desperate as they maybe. On the other hand politics is about benefits which is why HH has been fighting passionately to get into power.

It is folly to tell people that I fight to get into power out of philanthropism when you have made so much money and yet, you have very few charity works to point at. It is also a fact that real philanthropist do not fight for political power and we have many examples to that effect.

It is therefore important for UPND, as well as other political parties, to find means of looking after its members other than just mobilizing them for civil strife, abuse of citizens and violence.

UPND must show good example of good governance, social justice (looking after people) and respect for human rights. This is what will attract electorates to vote for them otherwise new political parties such as the Rainbow Party will by-pass them and test power before they do if they don’t go into extinction.

UPND must have a clear ideology and manifesto like the MMD, NAREP, Rainbow Party which is proving relevant on the political scene. The UPND is so personal because their ideology and manifesto is obscure and whimsy because it is drawn according to the emotions of the leader almost on the daily basis.

We express our views with sadness because as CSO we believe that for good governance to flourish, there have to be a strong opposition unfortunately the biggest opposition seem to be losing grounds making the PF have an easy ride on a number of issues. The PF even stands to win 2016 general elections due to poor opposition performance.

God bless Zambia.

  1. Young man, you have finally nailed it on UPND and it’s Under 5 leader. This Party does not even know what it stands for and just swallows everything like a black hole. How does an outsider you insulted you daily pitches up on your door and become your Vice President and you claim GBM was unanimously voted in by all party structures? Come on, we are not kids. How does Masebo who you demonised and called for his prosecution under Sata over corruption suddenly becomes your Angel. It’s beoz of no values or principles or ideology. I have more respect for Kabimba than HH. Kabimba, bad as he may be, is principled

    HH can’t be trusted, he is too desperate. RB joined UPND today, he will be made VP number 3 in UPND to just win Eastern Province

    • I cannot agree with you more on this one you have succinctly nailed it. I have said it time again that reactionaries on the other side of national unity, progress and national pride is based on flawed logic and emotional Groupthink. The distinctly opposition optimism is confoundingly hard to to translate to winning national votes because there is absolutely nothing mature about them on national interest.
      Our success as a country depends on commitment to national unity, own ingenuity other than counting on mortgaging the country to Anglo- Americans again in some swap deals over sponsorship. Zambians are increasingly getting comfortable with a leadership of inclusion and equity ECL is espousing well thusfar.

    • Love or hate it, ECL and hsi administration is steadfastly cementing a new socio-economic and political order towards a better Zambia. He is establishing a partnership with the people in building unity and sustainable prosperity for all seamlessly towards a ownership society. We love it and rally around these core values as citizens. We challenge all reactionaries to a sober and issue based debate on why Zambia is winning and consolidating for Greatness under the Lungu Presidency. The fragmented and highly commercially self rational interested reactionaries in the Agenda media and opposition legime, are again doomed with their faces down. Watch this space and vindicate us all who stand for Zambia first devoid of patronage.

    • You MMD Bootlicker & Senior Citizen…. the way you are thinking this month is horrible, just like RB.
      I think the best manifesto I have ever seen is Nawakwi’s and lazy Chipimo.
      The problem with UNPD is very difficulty for you laymen to interpret. It is written and presented like a Zambian Constitution. In-fact the UPND story is just same as the draft constitution, that why PF have failed to publish it.
      On Kabimba, how can on earth someone use the 60’s ideologies = SOCIALISM, your asss.

    • hahahaha…..so welcoming all the MMD outcasts (RB’s people) like Siliya who went on record to insult Sata is acceptable because?. I now respect Kambwili because he stood for PF values ( even though i dont agree with him alot of times), unfortunately most people in politics are cowards. They would rather praise the paymaster Lungu and throw away there dignity. Its good that the speech is comforting you for now, it is making you forget the hardships most people are going through. Masebo is a pros, she might be sickly but Ku Bomfwa Umupila on all rounds.

    • It really surprising that after 50years of independence Zambia is experiencing its worst economic crisis and we have people like Chilufya applauding a hollow and shallow speech from the president. The health indices the president read out put Zambia in bottom 10 in the world. This is a president that approved purchase of 157 new cars for DCs in the midst of a power crisis when hospitals have no gensets. Why do Zambians celebrate mediocrity? Why are we satisfied with so little? How can creation of 5 new ministries promote efficiency? Would the millions of dollars for this purpose do a better job be lending that money to youths for start up companies and create more jobs. We are in trouble!

  2. Tayali is a useless chap who has been paid by pf to attack UPND not to long ago he was warned by Kambwili and he has turned from saying RB is corrupt to attacking HH what a way to make a living only a person who does not know Tayali can have time for him it is a matter of time he will be exposed by PF like they way they did frank Bwalya.

  5. I THOUGHT WE HAD ENOUGH MINISTRIES WHICH CAN ADDRESS ALL THESE ISSUES MENSIONED BY THE PRESIDENT IN HIS SPEECH. I AM BECOMING SKEPTICAL WITH TAYALI’S VIEWS. YOU CAN NOT DEVELOP ON BORROWED MONEY AND BOAST THAT WE HAVE DONE OUR HOMEWORK. PEOPLE MUST THINK TWICE THAT WHEN YOU ARE A BORROWER, YOU BECOME A SLAVE TO THE MONEY LENDER.
    MWANAWAS FINISHED ALL THE LOANS WHILE DEVELOPING STEADY, THE KWACHA WAS GAININ ITS POWER WHEREBY NEARLY EVERY ONE GOT HAPPY IN THE COUNTRY. YOU MUST SEE THE VULNERABILITY IN THE RURAL AREA THE WAY IT IS TODAY. HE IS IN THE OFFICE FOR 8 MONTHS AND THE KWACHA HAS RISEN FROM K5 TO K10/ US DOLLAR, IS THAT WHICH WE CAN CALL HE WILL FULFILL HIS PROMISES? THING ARE VERY HIGH BEYOND CITIZEN’S INCOME.
    I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO REDUCE THE MINISTERS AND DEPUTIES BUT…

  6. Yes, you had to examine all the facts behind the President’s speech. We cannot and will not be passive in the face of such economic quagmire. We should be willing to challenge bad ways of governance in order to lessen the prospects of such meltdowns in the future. But what we cannot do is use this speech as one more occasion to turn on each other. That we cannot do.
    As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame on the UPND, let’s use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for economic recovery, and remind ourselves of all the ways that our hopes and dreams are bound together. We are one Zambia!

    • ZAMBIANS LIKE TAYALI ARE IN THE INTEREST OF COST LOSS THAN THINKING ON HOW TO REDUCE THE COSTS. I AM WAITING TO HEAR FROM THE MINISTER OF FINANCE’S BUDGET (WHICH I KNOW IS MADE IN THE BLUES) TO SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT’ SPEECH. IT IS MR CHIKWANDA WHO SAID ZAMBIA HAS NO MONEY AND TOLD THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA THAT WE HAVE TO INCREASE THE BORROWING OF LOANS FROM OUTSIDE. I AM SCARED BECAUSE I DO NOT SEE ANY LOGIC OF HAVING MORE THAN 100 MINISTERS WITH THEIR DEPUTIES.

And that Rainbow party is next in line ahead of the mighty UPND? You people are deluded. Let’s see the numbers your gay party will win in this week by elections.

On another day you can tell us what problems you have with UPND manifesto by pointing them out. How you have mixed the two no one will understand.
    As MMD’s Nakachinda aptly put it, why do the zambian media breed people like you. Are they that lazy to find serious people who can make statements that will encourage positive debate among citizenry.
    By the way what happened to your crusade against RB. Has he taken care of you?

  20. I see that Tayali has an agenda against HH and UPND. He doesn’t know and has never read the manifesto for UPND. I therefore feel pity for this man, because he is being funded by the politicians especially those in GOVT to try and block UPND popularity, seeing that the opposition party is fast gaining ground across the country.

    That kind of hatred for a person is not only dangerous, but it retards development; leave HH alone, there are many people who support him, just like you have someone whom you support as well.

    In a matter of time, you will become like CHANDA CHIIMBA III. Mark my words…..

  21. What’s up with Mr Chilufya Tayali by his conflicting positions one day he is anti Pf, another day he is anti UPND, is his mission to mislead the voters or maybe this is his strategy to appear he is providing checks and balances but really he is out to flatter and maybe belongs to another party and is just misleading voters. How come he has not been consistent with providing checks and balances on all the opposition parties if that is his mission.

I have a lot problems with double dealing, young politicians that rush into Politics at a very tender age (as a sort of livelihood/profession) presenting THEMSEVLES POOR SOULS’ SAVIOURS even before they achieve anything for themselves as individuals. The likes of UPND’s Mweetwa, Henry Tayali, Bowman Lusambo and yes; SA’s Julius Malema. They have a propensity to live a posh life off govt/political or religious institutions whilst preaching/ “championing” care for the poor, much like the fake pastors. The second category is that of loquacious hotheads type like Kambwili, Nevers Mumba.

  26. Tiyali had been paid by and is sponsored by PF, no one takes you serious. You are busy nodding about 2063 while pipo are expecting measures to arrest the economic decline and suffering now. That is why you have been accused of being a rapist.

  27. Just laughing at the predictable upnd comments. This is unofficial but expect a full official reaction tomorrow from the upnd. No prize for predicting who will speak for upnd tomorrow, it could be Dr Canissius Banda, or siakalima , or the big boss underfive himself . Certainly not GBM he has too many battles of his own, and anyway he hardly possesses any intelligence to understand these matters. Kikikikiki

    • @Terrible: Keep on laughing and showing your brown teeth with a smelly mouth. But you will soon be unable feed your grandmother; will continue living in darkness; Will never ever find a meaningful job!!
      That attitude of yours is the very reason why Arse.whores like you keep on wallowing in extreme poverty!! Do you think GBM or HH will ever suffer like you and your grand children…. continue Kikikiking – that’s the best and only thing which lazy and useless illiterate PF Cadres like you do anyway!!

    • I think right now PF should be the ones to be serious with national issues for once because what they do impacts on the livelihoods of Zambians. And what they have done and are doing so far is complete crap.

  32. The UPND mimbulu are at it again. They never learn, attacking Tayali left, right ad centre. They vindicate his statement. UPND will never rule this country in the next 100 years to quote one Chama, unless………..

  33. Another flawed analysis being fed to feeble zambians … polictics in zambian are tribal period. Theres a tribe that feels it owns the country, they push their agenda and zambians accept it, hence, this country will never develop. This tribe uses other tribes an all zambians don’t even pick it up. Its sad. If this egenration does not wake up to this antics they will leave to their children a useless yet richly naturally endowed country.

  34. There are both strong and weak points from the speech. Keep encouraging each other. Note also that the opposition is keeping PF under check and are beginning to behave for fear of being repelled.
    Zambians are however watching and will decide on the polling day.

  38. Iam a bit surprised how Tayali has moved from analysing ECL’s speech to attacking UPND? It is ECL who addressed Parliament! What this tells me is that UPND & HH are seen as a threat to PF’s hold on power so they must be attacked at any and every occassion. Did ECL discuss the UPND manifesto in his speech? Tayali has been paid by PF, becoz it was not long ago when he was busy telling us about “Father Corruption, RB”!! Well, Tayali, “Father Corruption” is still the right hand man of ECL! “Can two walk together unless they are agreed?” the Bible asks. Tayali should have done himself a favour by sticking to a critique of ECL’s speech. His verbiage against the UPND manifesto should have come later. The Zambian people are not stupid.

  40. This man is ejaculating in his own pants now because women know what he is capable of doing. He is now indirectly paying back the PF for what they did to him through the fractured legal system . Surely kapala iwe you can’t see that we don’t have any immediate and future economic plans to uplift us from poverty . The future economy will be hit by huge national repayment expenditures . The economic plans now do not support production ventures that will generate income to sustain the future repayment of Kaloba . Our immediate plans should move us from over dependant on minerals . Too much economic dependency on minerals will mean that our economy will be remote controlled by mineral prices decided by rich countries who run these markets. Our focus now should be diversifying our means…

  41. Tayali, you are not the only voter! We want HH this time around. writing nonsense about him will not change anything. People are feeling the pain of their mistake for voting ECL WHO IS BUSY ENJOYING TRAVELLING AROUND AIMLESSILY.

    • Learn to say I and not We just like you are telling Tayali that he is not the only voter. Just look at the insults on this site, it justifies what he meant when he wrote this…

      Mr Tayali further said that UPND is a party that is so intolerant of divergent views, adding that differing with the Party in opinion attracts insults and violence and told the Party that they must realise that they cannot threaten or beat people to vote for them.

  42. Ba UPND. Can you man up and highlight which sections of the speech has injured you this time? Was this better off being presented by GBM or HH than anyone else. Grow up mambala!

  43. Politicians if tayali attacks you and don’t respond the way he attacked you he will be vindicated if he said you insult people who have a different opinion with you and you start insulting him then he and those who pay him have won

  44. Tayali just rants. Lungu is promising heaven when the country’s economy is on it’s knees. Lungu has lamentably failed to solve the many challenges that have made people poorer and yet has the madness of imagining that he will create 500, 000 jobs between now and 2016. People supporting Lungu and Tayali must immediately go for medical examination because such thinking is devoid of normality.
