FORMER Zambia Union of Broadcasters and other Information Disseminators (ZUBID) president Simon Mwila has endorsed President Edgar Lungu and the Patriotic Front for 2016.

During the January 20, 2915 presidential elections ,the veteran broadcaster supported the United Party for National Development (UPND).

Mr Mwila said he decided to support President Lungu and its Government after a careful analysis and serious reflections.

He made the announcement at the rally organised by PF Mungwi district officials addressed by Malole Member of Parliament Christopher Yaluma at Rosa Mission Secondary School in Mungwi on Sunday.

“You saw me coming here on the different party but I have realised that it was a mistake to support political parties with no proper agenda and now I announce to you that I am in the boat,” Mr Mwila told residents.

He said Zambians should rally behind the leadership of President Lungu and allow him his Government complete various developmental projects.

Speaking later, Mr Yaluma who is Mines and Minerals Development Minister urged residents to support the PF Government beyond 2016 for the country to complete developmental projects.

“The PF Government is a people centred Government, we are committed to complete all the developmental projects let us work together for us to deliver,” he said.

To follow President Lungu’s strong emphasis on prayer, the meeting started with the prayer.

“We need to forgive each other, just last week we had prayer and fasting to reconcile the country. This needs to spread across the country,” Mr Yaluma said.

Responding to complaints by some residents on the deplorable nature of feeder roads in Rosa and the surrounding areas, he promised that a contractor would soon be on site.

“This road which stretches from Shimpa via Rosa to Chimba chiefdom will be worked on. We recently procured a set of earth movement equipment which will be going round to work on feeder roads,” Mr Yaluma said.

Government had put road construction as one of the priority sectors to link rural farmers to the market.

He reiterated that better roads brings a lot of benefits especially in rural areas where farmers had been grappling with limited access to the market for their produce as no one could venture into buying the produce in areas were the road network is bad.

    • I am hearing that name for the first time. Who is he? Can he be equated to Atanga who had followings? I think this is PF mind games. We know Malole is PF strong hold and it will always be even when PF is out of power but in the rest places PF should forget of being popular.

  1. SIMON MWILA IS USEFUL TO THOSE HE FELT WERE USELESS. HE IS LIKE KAPITA WHO THOUGHT BY MOVING OUT FROM UPND WILL CHANGE NORTH WESTERNERS BUT UNFORTUNATELY THAT IS WHEN EVEN THE FEW WHO WERE IN PF HAD TO JOIN UPND. MWILA HAS NOT MADE ANY CHANGE IN UPND BUT ONLY CONFUSION.

    • Are you aware that those in hospital caused that to themselves or you swallowed The Post propaganda hook, line and sinker? Thosed CBU students tried to climb on a wall in numbers and the wall gove up and fall injuring most of them. This has nothing to do with Lungu, please stop being used by people with unknown agendas.
      Lungu may not be the best president, but The Post has demonised him, leaving most os us very suscipicious of their agenda!

  4. It is all about tribal hegemony and consolidation. Mwila has been encouraged to support his tribe. There’s no news here.

  6. Comment:
    I come from Malole and Yaluma is not standing for PF in 2016. So this guy Mwila is positioning himself to take over from Yaluma. So there is no news. My advice to Mwila, you have just made the biggest mistake of your life. You will be disgraced if you stand on pf ticket.

  7. Mwila is most welcome back in the PF and we need more of such with communications skills. When credible and influential people start defecting from an opposition party that overrates itself, just know that they have smelled some serious Armageddon and it is folly for anyone to cling to that impending disaster.
    In 2016, HH will be heavily dealt with because am sure he doesn’t know what people are thinking. We are annoyed with Ichilema! We will not allow what happened in January 2015 to repeat itself, if anything we are very upset with UPND because it showed its criminal activities by trying to ambush PF in the midst of the confusion that was brought about by Mmembe and the cartel. Today PF is getting stronger and very solid founded on God’s guidance.
    Wapya mune kachema.

  12. It appears most of the UPND members cannot distinguish between North & East. Mwe batonga (abantu botatwe), do you hate Northerners so much that you can’t distinguish between East and West? Is Lungu from the East or the North of Zambia? Really now….

  14. Even in the previous general elections, it looked as if UPND was headed for victory due to the inter-party wrangles that had engulfed PF at that time. From a very careful analysis, I see the hand of God on president Edgar Lungu. Even this time many people wrongly think that PF has lost popularity. I tell you, the hand of God Almighty is still on Edgar Lungu. God has chosen him for a reason.

    • Your inner eye serves you well. The choice is His Excellency President Lungu. He has been very impressive considering the tough economic conditions during his term. If you scratch off the dirt thrown at him and First Lady, they are the ACE Team.

      They have worked valiantly for Zambia even with all the ridicule they have been served.

  15. You lose one you gain one and so forth and so forth. Welcome, hope you don’t bring the same result you gave UPND. There is hardly a record to marvel at!
