Former ZR CEO Prof Atanga and his Wife being welcomed by HH

Former Zambia Railways Chief Executive Officer Professor Muyenga Attanga and his wife and former PF Deputy Secretary General Bridget Attanga have ditched the ruling patriotic front to join the United Party for National Development (UPND).

At a colourful ceremony at the UPND party secretariat that was officiated by UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and Vice-President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM), Prof. Attanga said that the ruling PF has totally submerged and cannot support and improve the lives of many Zambians adding that he worked with late Michael Sata who had a vision for Zambia and not Edgar Lungu who is completely lost.

At the same function, over 400 MMD and PF leaders from Kanyama, Mandevu, and Munali constituencies defected to the UPND.

And UPND President Mr. Hichilema said that he was everyday getting worried with the way PF President Lungu was managing the affairs of the country.

Speaking when he received the over 400 people, who he referred to as UPND goodwill ambassadors, Mr. Hichilema said that the current economic turmoil caused by lack of foresight by the PF may plunge the country into more social and economic challenges.

The UPND leader said PF and President Lungu must realise that he has failed to govern the country and publicly give up.

Mr. Hichilema called on UPND members across the country to embrace new members and never feel threatened with their positions.

He called for mass mobilisation and recruitment of members and also form solid structures at all levels across the country.

And speaking at the same event UPND Vice-President for Administration GBM said that Zambians have resolved to voting for UPND because of the way PF has mismanaged the economy.

GBM, who is also Kasama Central MP, says there is no need for one to be a magician or fortune teller to see that the country is in an economic mess and needs resuscitation.

And commenting on the defection, PF secretary-general Davies Chama said that former Deputy Secretary-General Bridget Atanga is not a political factor and that she left the ruling party way before the January 20, 2015 presidential election.

Mr Chama said in an interview yesterday that Mrs Atanga left the PF way before the January 20 presidential election which President Lungu won.

“Mrs Atanga had no following in the PF. In fact she left with her husband only,” Mr Chama said.

He said Mrs Atanga was failing to cross over to the opposition UPND because her husband was the managing director at Zambia Railways Limited.

“So Mrs Atanga was not our member at the time of her defection to UPND,” Mr Chama said.

  1. THE THING THAT SURPRISES ME IS THAT THERE ARE STILL SOME EDUCATED PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT PF. HOW THEY RECONCILE PF MEDIOCRE PERFORMANCE WITH THEIR OWN CONSCIOUS. NOW TYIS GOVERNMENT IS USING POLICE BRUTALITY TO ABUSE INNOCENT STUDENTS. ZCTU AND ALL THE MAJOR POLITICAL AND NGO ORGANISATION NEED TO DEMAND A INVESTIGATION INTO THIS ISSUE OR CALL FOR A GENERAL STRIKE UNTIL THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE ARE CHARGED FOR THIS CRIME.

    • @Loadist: the only explanation is tribal hegemony. Northerners think that PF as their tribal party must continue to rule regardless of its incompetence and thievery.

    • What is significant here Bwana Chama is that PF has lost potential 2 votes and MMD 400 if those people keep to their decisions by election time next year. Election results depend on this factor; so do not be dismissive. A mature statement should have been issued to the effect that “the loss is regretted because strength of political parties lie in numbers but we must also respect the democratic choice of the Attangas”.

    • The wild fire on destroying Visionless PF has started. The PF BANDITS have lambently failed economically, politically & democratically. PF is democratically, politically & economically VOTED OUT in 5 months time.
      Visionless PF Bandits destroying the country can never have a vision, only illusions of chaos, corruption, confusion & violence. The ECONOMY & KWACHA dance is vigorous due to endless inconsistencies in PF visionless leadership, if at all is such. PF BANDITS have completely failed, you don’t need to go away, WHERE IS THE CONSTITUTION OF 90 DAYS?
      5 years of PF has seen the ECONOMY & KWACHA to be the WORST headache in the history of mankind! PF is simply CLUELESS about anything else but arrogance, confusion, corruption & violence by visionless bandits.
      5 months left to PF…

    • …….being VOTED overwhelmingly & positively OUT.

      In 5 months PF bandits destroying Zambia will be history of visionless cadres who plugged the economy to the WORST ever under King Cobra Sata, (Dr Scott was great) & Jameson visionless Lungu.
      Now RB another Bandit, 1 leg in MMD(fire) & the other 2rd leg in PF (water is sinking) wants CASH or MONEY instead of a House as the Constitution stipulates. PF visionless bandits want to amend the constitution because of Bandit RB, why MAMBALA uja?

    • They are still there. I know of someone with BSc (Eng), MSc (Eng), MBA, CIMA and senior manager in the diaspora. He said he supported EL over HH because EL had been in government before even though there is nothing that he achieved. It is just tribalism but at least many are now seeing that their tribalism has eaten them alive with their families and relatives.

    • @Misango. No. PF has not lost 2 votes. Read again, the articles says “over 400 MMD AND PF leaders from Kanyama, Mandevu, and Munali constituencies defected to the UPND.” The propotion of how many MMD or PF is not stated in the article

      Iwe ka loadist, education without output means nothing at all. Look at some of your tribesmen, the so called educated who had a chance to transform Zambia but messed up big time. HH sold and liquidated all the industries in Zambia and the effects are being felt today which PF and the humble people are trying very hard to normalize, look at Anderson Mazoka, what contribution did he make to the economy of Zambia when he swimming in money at ZCCM? Look at Munkombwe, the oldest lion in politics of the belly.
      When the true men and women of Zambia came in to change things, you start crying forgetting that you had you time. Look at Nkumbula, he was just a womanizer and a drunkard so your time is long gone and its time for serious people and their children to transform Zambia.

      A tanga is an opportunist and a thief. When he was a mine official in Mufulira he used to steal diesel when his allocation got exhausted running around on private errands.
      Him and HH are birds of the same feathers as they are rabid tribalists.
      PF is for the nation of Zambia and not regionalists.

You are not in power and yet you behave arrogantly. What if you assume power? Tizakanya madzi. That is why I encourage people not to vote for you.

    • @loadist, and these are the silly little comments that give people cold feet, about UPND! why should do you use education all the time as a basis, does that mean UPND will not accomodate the majority “uneducated electorates” and education has got nothing to do with winning an election ba UPND, one can have all the degrees in the world and even surrounded by highly educated people but lose an election, we’ve all seen that happen once or twice!! and believe it or not Lungu is educated, and i’m sure you people know that.

  3. HH’s body language looks disconnected. Maybe he has just realized that the Big Tine Losers have just joined his party. Isn’t this the professor every UPND cadre demonised when he was at the helm of ZR. ZWD even accused him to have blown the Euro bond. What are they going to say now. UPND is really desperate for power and lost its val;ues and principles,

    I think sometimes it is okay to reject some people because they will contaminate you. What do these two couple really bring to UPND. Come on HH be realistic

    • @Moscow (OP) much as I do not side with political parties blindly I believe the kolopa you are talking about may not happen and may just be the other way round. Unless indeed more people register and turn out to vote back PF in power, the UPND has done a better job in mobilising people in its strongholds and main urban areas of Lusaka and the Copperbelt. The a low number of new registered voters who may be shared among UPND,Rainbow and PF itself coupled with high levels of apathy in PF strongholds may result in the UPND carrying the day. Yes PF has invested in infrastructure here and there but they have failed to mobilise the party and voters as they should be doing and may thus loose!

  11. When Dora (the enemy no.1 of PF in 2011 and with cases of electoral malpractices in court) joined the PF and was subsequently appointed into cabinet, people said “PF is a party open to all, very welcoming”.

  13. Many zambians have known the truth about why there was such a voting pattern in jan 2015. Under pf the economy has become terribly unbearable. People are registering in numbers to kick out pf in 2016. It is not possible for a visionless party to fix the economy between now and voting day. The more pf will rush things for votes, the more blunders it will commit.

  15. Muyenga Atanga is a charlatan. He has no PhD, let alone a masters degree. The only postgraduate qualification he has is an Executive Management Certificate obtained from Harvard after some weeks of training. He has never taught at any university of repute other than teaching some elementary business courses at MANCOSA. And he has never conducted any research in his career. Who conferred professorship on this quack? He is at liberty to join any political party of his choice, but a questionable academic background like this needs to be interrogated because it says a lot about his integrity and trustworthiness.

    • Maikalange, At least Atanga attended a regular full time degree programme in Mining Engineering at UNZA straight from Secondary School with a Division 1 pass. Contrast that with a Grade 12 failure who claims to be a graduate from a kantemba university called Copperstone through night school after ‘wheeling and dealing’ then decide who the real quack is.

THE PF LOOTERS HAVE LOOTED ENOUGH. THEY HAVE DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY ENOUGH. NOW LET US STOP THEM FROM FURTHER RAVAGING OUR ECONOMY BY KICKING THEM OUT IN OUR 2016 ELECTIONS.

Lungu visited Kasisi orphanage this year. all i can say is that i am watching and just smiling because Zambians are easily lied to. thats why i will forever be voting for Miyanda, he is the only politician i trust. i dont truct any of the other politicians. all this crossing from one party to another is very retrogressive. next it will be RB crossing to UPND after he is denied CASH for his house and all UPND will be dancing while Chama will be saying its good riddance because he doesnt have following etc. as Zambians we must wake up and call a spade a spade. look at America, Ben Carson is causing a storm in the republican party because people trust him despite him not…

It is disconcerting and mostly disgusting when selective justice is applied. Having said that, Atanga’s record at ZR – after ousting Chirwa – was a lamentable failure that should not be left without consequence. He must account for his time there.

      …..exactly my line of thot too….but somehow it may not happen bcoz Attanga could have also played a role of ‘distribution manager’…a ‘conduit’ and he could have been an eagle who has a photographic memory of ‘birds’ that participated in the pandemonium of eating the ‘grains’…which were scattered at ZR grounds…

  29. Can any PF supporter tell me why they should continue supporting PF when:
    1. we have witnessed unprecedented increase in price of food and other goods, only seen in Zimbabwe a decade or so. What this means is that where you used to spend K800 for groceries, now you spend K1600 meaning PF has made you lose K800 of your hard earned money ( and money is difficult to find under PF). In other words, your income has been reduced by 50% by default.
    2. Over 40% of under 5 children in the country are stunted. This will now increase with the rise in cost of living.
    3. Citizens have only seen infrastructure and not witnessed human development, which is more important
    4. Govt keeps on spending as if Zambia has excess funds such as the UN trip which Malawian President condemned as being extravagant

    • I am a political activist who loves his country dearly and believes that with truth Zambia can be the greatest country on earth. You have asked straight questions that deserve straight forward answers. You talked about the depreciation of the Kwacha; this problem has nothing to do with the current government. Depreciation has occurred affecting currencies of all major economies on the continent including Angola, South Africa and Nigeria. Commodity prices of oil, copper and cobalt have fallen by over 50% and this will cause a problem for economies dependent on one stream of income. Load shedding is a historical problem caused by lack of planning from previous governments. Kariba dam was built in 1955 – 1957; ECL was born in the same period.

  34. If in a family you have a mad person, you will count him/her as a family member even if that person does not add value because the number of people in the family will be counted less or more for circumstances. Therefore, in politics every single vote counts and it make a big difference. So, political parties should be concerned over one single vote lost instead of comforting themselves when things are happening like that. If am to ask, has chama counted the number of people who add value to pf? Any loss of a political party member should be regretted because others resign and yet they are not announced. So, taking things for granted and the same way is a sign of paganism and lack of wisdom.

  37. @Be Objective. I rarely respond to hearsay but listen to this:
    1. The rise in food prices and other goods is not confined to Zambia alone, for instance the price of a dozen eggs in the US is over $2 compare with $0.47 just three years ago.
    2. That over 40% of under 5 children are stunted? Wait a minute now. The idea and urge to have children is the sole appetite of an individual. In Zambia and even developed countries you find John Solye Ubwali having children. You know very well you have no means of income to support a family, why have children? Yes governments should provide good healthcare, but I believe it’s incumbent upon future parents to scheme a plan before having children.
    3. You speak of infrastructure development at the expense of human development, you are both right and…

  39. When Zambians go to the polls next year, let it be clear to them that tribalism will be on the ballot papers. They must address it thoroughly. The voters in northern and eastern province need to be educated on how to vote, they must follow the example given by voters from Southern province. As a matter of fact let all voters follow the voting patterns in Southern Province and let us see who wins this election. Regardless of what Mwamba and Mutati say, Northern voters can no longer ignore the voting patterns in Southern Province; they must be discussed in every village in the northern and eastern parts of Zambia. I know UPND hates this kind of discussion but sorry we it addressing on the ballot paper.

    • the voting patterns in the south are like that because the people there don’t want to be part of the incompetence, mismanagement and corruption of PF, do you blame them. Just look at the economy, job loses every where, loadshedding non stop, worst performing currency, dept levels in 4 yrs surpassing UNIPs 27 yr rule while UNIP practically built the country with free education for all and industries and hospitals and airports. yet you have put us deeper indept and barley scratched the surface of what UNIP done and you expect sensible people to vote for PF ? maybe they are better informed and care about the future of the country more

      You have forgotten Luapula Copperbelt, Lusaka and Muchinga Provinces, we have to do what they did to us in January 2015 with shame. Never leave your enemy behind so Shaka tells us.

    • You are probably too young. In the 1991 Elections every province voted MMD except Eastern Province who voted for UNIP because of the many Easterners in UNIP then. In 1996 Southern Province gave Chiluba over 90% votes at the expense of Mulemba (North- Western) and Inonge Lewanika (Lozi) because he was a better candidate. Fast forward 2001, Mazoka lost because Northern and Luapula Provinces did not vote for him in preference for the MMD sponsored LPM and Eastern Province voted mainly for FDD because Christon Tembo was an easterner and yet Mazoka was clearly the best candidate, his only crime was being Tonga. And recently we head about wako ni wako. So who is Tribal.

  40. The root and perpetrator of Tribalism and Regionalism in zambia is HH and UPnd. People are seeing this tribalistic scheme and surely it will take them nowhere! 2016 infintu ni LUNGU again nd again!

  41. Truth is HH will lose the 2016 elections to Edgar Chagwa Lungu by a huge margin! You chaps in UPND are so blind that you cant really see who the real man is politically. In all the temporal challenges that Zambia is going through, ECL is pulling huge crowds and is calm, focused, working hard and delivering on his campaign promises.
    Whilst you are dreaming, Lungu and PF are delivering development and if you ask anyone, they will tell you they don’t eat dollar or load shedding but are happy to see their lives changed by development in their midst.
    Given the political barometer now and in the next 12 months, I see nothing that can make PF and Mr Lungu lose elections to anyone on earth. Just take a look around Zambia today, you surely agree that Mr. Lungu is delivering on what matters to…

Just take a look around Zambia today, you surely agree that Mr. Lungu is delivering on what matters to the citizens and a such will receive huge YES vote in 2016. Remember actions speak louder than words (promises)!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    By the way, is this the Bridget Atanga who was against President Lungu after Mr Sata’s death and also is this Mr. Atanga who squandered had no vision at Zambia Railways but only excited with blowing the Euro Bond? If the answer is yes, they seized to be factors long ago and have no impact, indeed this is Under 5!

  44. I do not have any regard for the Atangas for a start. Bridget showed how partial she was during the Guy Scott fracus and Muyenga is under investigation by the ACC. The economy is not doing too well but frankly, I am surprised at how the opposition is letting the PF off the hook, I have a feeling the 2016 election will be very similar to the 2015 election with PF just edging the UPND. The PF is likely to win Lusaka but not overwhelmigly, Copperbelt will be similar, Central Province will be even but Eastern Province will go the PF’s way. Western Province will be well fought for (the Wina effect). Nothing will change in North Western, Southern and Northern Provinces.

  45. I cant support a party that hides in religion to draw a crowd to vote for them. Pf is clearly hiding behind the vicarious legitimacy of religion to cheat people into voting for them next year. Chiluba also did the same in 1991 and 1995

    Keep dreaming iwe, this time around you will not even be given a chance to go to Mulungushi to cry foul and make noise because the margin will be just too big to comprehend, HH is dead and buried. Mwalitumpa sana imwe tu UPND. If you mismanage your home finances on polygamism, don’t think its the same with everyone. The first thing a life is born does is to eat, meaning eating will always be there but we have to develop other things to make our lives better. So “negative impact of the economy” is relative and only in your head, use your hands God has given you and stop looking at your neighbour’s hands.

    • The tribal song will not help you Ghetho power ,Its to outdated and too boring. We youths from mixed marriages will be the majority voters,since we have no jobs we shall decide and show all Zambians that HH is the chosen one in 2016.

  49. Is Chama ok? PF is bleeding daily and all he can say is that Atanga is not a political factor? Do you know who was instrumental in making that huge number of defectors possible? Anyway, this man should be confused with the sudden turn of events for the worse. The resistance within his party especially by the old PF supporters is hardening. How do you keep on appointing former MMD members into government leaving your own hard working people, when are those going to be given a chance? Now you have brought in people with pending cases like Dolla ya Sila, do you expect applause?

  54. Sounds like dreamland and that is what it is. When you wake in 2016 you will see the reality.kikikiki
    So what position has she been given, and who has to give way? No?
    I pity UPND, all these guys and girls would need a ministerial position if ever they came to power and that is what UPND is offering them. UPND would have to have the largest government ever in the history of Zambia unless they do a donchi on these adventurers, but if that happens UPND would start crumbling with disgruntled “polliticians”. kikikikiki

  55. Prof Atanga says he brought a lot of members in western province to PF in 2011, and now he will work equally hard to bring members to UPND. I expect that those members are waiting for Attanga to take them to UPND this time, is that how lowly the professor thinks of people in his native western province? I expect to tell them something like “I made a mistake in 2011 but this time trust me as I try again”. kikikiiiki

  56. Ooops…maybe the economy is biting the upnd carders. Look at GBM….ulufumo nalutampa uku silima kaa. Awe GBM aondaa. Ama contracts yalipwa. Amonekako na handsome pa menso. Ulufumo nao nalutobeka kwati ni nsupa kaa. Lungu akucita bwana gbm. From GBM to gbm ooppsssiii. Awe sure ba upnd bavutika.
    The number of defectors is the same number of those who voted for hh during the Jan. 2015 elections. no increase what so ever minus GBM. Fumyenipo one defector. THAT one is GBM still the PF. And all of those that were being cheated by GBM are slow thinkers for them to agree that GBM is upnd….my foot he is cheating the hell out of you. GBM is still PF. He is only delaying the proof that he is no factor in PF. You guys should have asked him the question why he is calling himself still PF. upnd…

Get the money & eat….and donchi kubeba. hh, GBM now gbm, Prof. Attanga & madam wabo, mwanawasa, Patel and many other rich ones joining upnd… please voters go and attend their rallies, eat their monies and ddonchi kubeba. Let them spend the monies because they are to spend the money so that you also spend it on food. They stole your money and this is the only way to recover your money.
    Viva ECL…Viva PF….

  61. Kanyama, Mandevu and Munali constituencies combined together have more than 400,000 people and out of these hh only manages to get 400 and boasts that his party is growing. Muyenga and his wife stopped being PF when Edgar become PF presidential candidate. That was the time they even joined their n’gombe ilede friends in upnd, so there is no news here.
