Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Chama

PEOPLE of Kasama should accept Geoffrey Mwamba’s gifts and chew his money since he has offered it to them on a silver platter but should also remember to do a don’t kubeba on him because money has gotten to his head Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general Davies Chama has charged.

And Mr. Chama has claimed that cracks in the United Party for National Development (UPND) have emerged after senior members become aware of Mr. Mwamba’s schemes to allegedly take over the party leadership if its president Hakainde Hichilema loses the 2016 elections.

Reacting to Mr. Mwamba’s comment that the Kasama Central by-election would be the most expensive in the history of Zambia as he was willing to spend whatever amount of money was at his disposal to retain his seat, Mr. Chama said the electorate in Kasama should accept the gifts from Mr. Mwamba with both hands.

Mr Mwamba said he was ready to spend money like he did in the Kabwata parliamentary election in 2006 which he however lost to Mr Given Lubinda who is still the incumbent and Minister of Agriculture.

“I am more than ready I will match them dollar for dollar, pound for pound, Kwacha for Kwacha , chitenge for chitenge and bicycle for bicycle,” Mr Mwamba who was reacting to the High Court’s declaration of his seat vacant warned.

On Thursday, Mr Mwamba lost an application for judicial review in the High Court over Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini’s decision to declare Kasama Central constituency vacant.

But Mr Chama said it was time to teach some politicians a lesson that money was not everything to win an election.

“We welcome Mr. Mwamba’s call to the feast and since he is ready to spend, let the people of Kasama enjoy themselves; chew his money and get all the gifts he wants to lure you for votes with but don’t forget to do a don’t kubeba on him when election time comes,” he said.
He said Mr. Mwamba will never learn from history because he was obsessed with money which he thought could make Zambians surrender their souls to him.

“Mr. Mwamba’s money has gotten to his head and he has stopped thinking properly and that is why he is taking Zambians for a ride. This is the same thing he did in Kabwata when he stood against Honourable (Given) Lubinda where he said he would spend about K3 billion (unrebased) but he lost to a candidate who did not have money.

“He now thinks he is popular but he forgets that it was PF that made him to be what he is today because he thinks money is everything. PF has never won elections using money but we have been issue-based and that is what has won us the elections. So, let him spend; let him feed the people but he will be surprised,” he said.

Mr Chama said Mr. Mwamba should not cheat himself that he could win in Kasama because he was headed for an embarrassing defeating as people had rejected him after realising that he could not be trusted because of his disregard for the electorate.

“Ask people in Kasama to tell you the truth on the ground because Mr. Mwamba is no longer a factor he used to be when he was in PF under which he gained the popularity that he is boasting about today,” Mr. Chama said.

He wondered why Mr. Mwamba rushed to the courts for protection when on the other hand he was boasting about being popular.

“If he is popular as he claims, what was the motive behind rushing to court to protect himself? If he is popular, why is he desperate to spend all that amount of money? Our message has always been clear; we don’t win elections using money because you cannot buy voters. We are issue based and that is what ushered us into power against a very strong ruling party that had money at its disposal in 2011,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Chama has observed that Mr. Mwamba was a good ambassador for the PF because he had successfully managed to sow a seed of discontentment among UPND faithfuls who were now agitated by his bullish antics as he was positioning himself to takeover when Mr. Hichilema loses in 2016 by plotting its downfall.

“We have inside information that there are already confusions in UPND because Mr. Hichilema is agitated that Mr. Mwamba, who is the newcomer to the party is scheming to take over the party leadership when he loses in 2016. So, he is a good ambassador for us,” he said.

  2. Chama you are cheating yourself and you are very dull. Recently you said people should be buying bread from Shoprite where the commodity is cheap so someone who stays in rural area like Isoka should travel to Kasama for bread? Prices of essentials are increasing everyday where is your pf taking us. Exit 2016

  4. Don’t insult Chama. Just respond to the issues he has raised. Is GBM capable of winning kasama under UPND? Big NO. It’s like PF winning Choma central…so, bitter upnd members just counter the issues raised intelligently without insulting the person. Even deep down your hearts u know GBM can’t win kasama under upnd. Believe me cos I live in kasama

  5. How can a black man call himself Davies? I ve never seen a white man calling himself Chama. Whites never name themselves after us because they think africans are primitive and pagan. Yet we Africans think we cant stand before the UN general assembly without a European name such as Edgar

    • For an African that would be embarrassing. But No white man wants to be black its black people who want to be white. So much so that if whites start shitting on their dinner tables Blacks will copy them.

  6. POLITICS ALSO! JUST FEW YEARS AGO GBM WAS ILLITERATE KAPONYA IN THE EYES OF THE ENTIRE UPND. BUT, SINCE HE JOINED THEM AS VICE PRESIDENT GBM NOW IS AN INTELLIGENT AND EDUCATED MAN. ANYWAY, WAIT GBM IS VERY CLOSE TO BEING UPND PRESIDENT AND IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE HE STARTS LEADING THE UPND PARTY SINCE HH WILL LOSE IN 2016. GBM WILL BE THE NEXT PERSON WITH MONEY IN UPND AND THEREFORE, WILL MORE THAN QUALIFY TO BE UPND PRESIDENT. UPND DON’T CARE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT HAVING BRAINS. THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR PRESIDENT HAVING MONEY.

  7. I think the timing of giving him VP position was wrong. Should have waited until April-May 2016 perhaps to avoid a bye-election until general election. GBM was going to stand a better chance wining during the general elections when the PF resources will be stretched. As at now, I would not be surprised if that loan they recently got from China through DBZ found its way to Kasama because they will spend big on this one to make sure they retain it-actually I bet Edgar wouldn’t mind blowing the o Chikwanda’s budget on Kasama.
    It was also a poor strategy on the part of GBM to announce that he will spend big, he should have moved in quietly on this one bearing in mind he is dealing with govt machinery capable of oiling everyone village to village, especially that they know his popularity…

  8. Chama, how I wish you could also ask Greyford and Richwel why they rushed to the courts for protection. Anyway, you have to talk to be seen relevant. Please no guns in Kasama, No organized police brutality, No cadres carrying Pangas. Stop provocations to the opposition and when they defend them selves you have them arrested so that you can disenfranchise them. Punch for Punch? I think he meant he will campaign as much as you will.

  9. Even in GRZ that’s what this PF do, chew our money and don’t do as agreed. That what the party was founded on — dishonesty, which they have taken to new heights. Every contract, every loan involves stealing for them. Have you ever heard Ediga mention the word corruption? That is why there is no accountability in GRZ otherwise they will all flee the country with their I’ll Gotten wealth.

  10. I totally agree with the Secretary General Hon. Chama, its time for Fat Hubert to go. Money earned in a crooked way is always spent without thought. Money is good but its not every thing and if you vote for some basing on money then he can not represent you, Fat Hubert once said he joined politics to make money. People of Kasama please vote wisely as bangoshe babili tabekala chulu chimo.

  11. GBM knows very well that he will lose Kasama central the bedroom for PF…….No matter how much billions he will spend,us the people of Kasama will gladly enjoy his money but the vote is for PF which we feel is still well focused and spearheading development Country wide.UPND can never surpass the record of the current govt which for instance is spending millions of kwacha on the bottom road in southern province never done since independence and yet its people vote using a tribe.

  12. The man want to be President at any cost and little wonder the genuine members of UPND are closely watching him because the motive to join the party was not not to bring development but to dribble HH and take over leadership after 2016 when he loses.What about us who have suffered for the Party since Mazoka days……you think we can allow him ? The marriage of convenience will end in 2016,there after we know those who are 100% UPND and the one to succeed HH is already known…..certainly not fat joe who does not know even how to milk a cow.
