FDD President Edith Nawakwi says President Lungu is on the copperbelt to revive the political fortunes of the PF and not to save the job loses in the mines.

Ms. Nawakwi said President Lungu is feeling the heat and knows that things are bad for him and his party hence his decision to camp in the Province and try to revive the fortunes of the party.

” Ba Lungu will not camp here (copperbelt)because he wants to resolve the challenges in the mining sector. He is here to put structures for his re- election because things have gone bad for him and PF.”

Nawakwi wondered what President Lungu will do differently to avert the continued job losses which he can’t do without him taking a costly trip to the Copperbelt.

She said the only concern For the current crop of leadership is how to stay in office beyond 2016 which they have seen is highly unlikely due to the mess they have created in this country.

” Edgar Lungu is not coming here to sort out your problems as he is purporting, he is coming here to put up structures for his re- election in 2016 because he has felt the heat coming from the people in the Copperbelt due to the job losses. He has said he will do anything to make sure that he wins the elections and this trip is exactly about that,” Nawakwi said.

“He claims that he is coming to resolve your concerns but what is there to resolve when thousands of jobs for children, husbands and fathers have already been lost. When he comes here will he be speaking to the people who have lost their jobs? The answer is a definite NO! He will go to the people who have put you on the street and nothing will be resolved because you are not his primary concern but his re- election,” she added.

We can’t even afford a ‘pamela’ yet the PF had promised us heaven on earth, cried residents of Kalilo area in Chingola rural.

And FDD leader Edith Nawakwi said it is shocking to see people in abject poverty when President Edgar Lungu was busy bragging of amassing wealth.

She wondered were he has gotten wealth which he has been bragging about to the extent that he will buy voters to ensure victory in next year’s election when he didn’t even have money for printing campaign T-shirts nine months ago.

Meanwhile women of Kalilo in Chingola vowed never to vote for PF even if they bring money for them.

” We have learn’t our lessons here. This PF government promised us heaven on earth during the campaigns but look at us today. Even a ‘pamela’ is very expensive for us here. Eating Nshima in a day is a luxury. Ala tulechula kuno. Ba PF balelanda ati tukalaikala bwino, kashi bufi. Taba ta esako kuno. ( PF promised us better lives, but they have never even visited us here ). We are slaves in our own country,” said Melody Kuchana who spoke on behalf of the women.

Kuchana said God will punish the PF for perpetuating the sufferings of the people.

And another resident Beston Chiluba said eating bread was a very costly experience.

“We don’t know the last time we ate bread. Bread comes from chingola town for it to reach here it costs close to K12 now can we villages manage this. Tulefwa kunsala,” Chiluba said.

    • This is no good for Nawakwi, she can’t be in same territory has Edgar who is on a campaign weekend.
      We saw Edgar in a PF hat, that is not a republican presidential hat, it was clear the trip was PFoosh, not for miners.

    • Nawakwi,the mess that Zambia is in was created by the MMD government of which you were part and parcel of. It doest take one to be an economist to know that your government presided over the worst privatisation this world has ever seen. My question for Nawakwi is simple……..how many people lost jobs in mines due to the flawed privatisation you were a part of? Had you not sold off the mines for a song, would Zambia’s economy be were it is today?

    • Jemasonomics is a deviant type of economics that involves fire fighting, no planning and no vision. It also involves blaming nature for all failures of a leadership such as Edgar and his minions. Fact is people on the CB are poorer and hungrier after Edgar became president and the worst is yet to come.Leadership is very important, look at Botswana, Namibia and Rwanda.

  2. Ba Nawakwi , you can’t just criticize for the sake of it, if you have nothing good to say it’s just keep quite. Copperbelt is part of Zambia, the problems the country is facing today is because of too much Lusaka.

If you are suffering it is because of your laziness and dullness. I do not depend on the government for a job or tenders but can afford to look after my family comfortably.

    • You are very ignorant.. Typical of Pf to play the blame game. The cant own up to anything. Zambians problems have been caused by poor planning through poor leadership, unnecessaary expenditure, and we spend too much money on administration. Paying govt salaries and per diems. Do you even know how much Lungu is paying himself per day for camping in the copperbelt? Think before you speak my friend. Ignorance is not a good look on you.

  6. This girl is very cantankerous and very dull. Edgar does not report to you, in fact if he is on the copperbelt to deal with his party issues, well good for him. At least he knows which side of his bread is buttered. As for you my street girl, you shall sing until your throat is dry, you shall never be president in Zambia!

  10. Nawakwi, just tell those residents what you wish you would do if unexpectedly you became president. You are full of hate for the President no wonder you always try to ‘demonise’ him all the time. ECL has every right to be on the Copperbelt and reorganise the PF just like you are doing for your finished FDD. Viva ECL.

Nawakwi is one of the vibrant and sensible politicians zambia has ever produced..those that call her names do so out of sectarian partisan interest..are you sure ms Nawakwi is a street girl, political clown? A reality check is necessary on yo part comrades.. With or without involvement in politics her life and that of her guardians is secure unlike some of you who just saying stuff and do komboni politics you barely understand..it is unfair and grossly unfair to accuse opposition politicians of sinking so low by attacking personalities instead of addressing real issues..here is my understanding of what happens. A politician will address many issues, provide solutions to the challenges facing the masses but the media will pick on on one that will capture the attention of their readers,…

  13. @Heritage Leader for your info: That street girl you are talking about is sitting pretty! Nawakwi is a big time commercial farmer who hires planes and choppers to spray her estates! If we all had that mindset , Zambia would have made great advances! And she is right, one year ago, EL couldnt even afford to print one chitenge. He came up with a novel idea that ‘awe we will use our late presidents portraits.’ if you remember even under 5 complained that PF were wooing public sympathy by displaying the Cobra’s face! And it worked! Now they have even forgotten how Chigow looks like in CB, its time to remind the home oys how I have made it! Enjoy mwandini ba ‘plessdent’ it may be ‘now you see it, now you don’t’! Even ba Ester who had never travelled outside of the country is now even…

  14. ECL HAS COME TO PLAY MBEBA TRICKS ON THE COPPERBELT PEOPLE’S MIND. ONE MUST ASK HIMSELF THIS QUESTION; WHAT WENT WRONG IN MMD FOR US TO CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT? YES, ONCE YOU FIND THE ANSWER, ANOTHER QUESTION IS; FROM THE TIME PF CAME INTO POWER WHAT HAS IT DONE SO THAT I CANE SAY THEY HAVE WORKED DIFFERENT FROM MMD? HOW WAS THE ECONOMY DURING MMD COMPARED TO PF?

    A REASONING PERSON WILL NEVER ACEPT INKONGOLA FOR THE SAKE OF DEVELOPMENT.
    MWANAWASA DEVELOPED THE COUNTRY WHEN WE HAD A GLOBAL CRISS, REDUCED THE DEBTS TO ZERO WITH THE “TIGHTENED BELTS” PF HAS INCREASED THE DEBTS WITH TIGHTEN BELTS FOR THREE YEARS.
    MY COMMENT IS THAT ONLY THOSE WHOSE BELLIES ARE FULL WILL HEAR FROM CHAPONA LUNGU’S SPEECHES.

    • @brenda
      I cant agree more than you my dear. Personally, I ever wanted Lusaka to have good roads and the PF has done it! We are no longer ahamed when we alight from the planes, viva President Lungu, 2016, victory is guaranteed
      And this is what the majority (three quarters) of the voters are saying and thanking President Lungu and the PF Government for making their lives manageable by development, thanks a lot.
      The need to eat will always be there and whats important is provide enabling environment for people to becoming innovative, spoon feeding killed the Soviet Union and we cant go that route, NO!

    • @Brenda. So you will eat roads? As Jay Jay says, we “..are wallowing in poverty with that mindset.”!!! There is nothing wrong with building roads, but it is better to invest borrowed money in industries, which will create jobs, which will increase revenue and bring in the money to pay off those loans! Tell us how PF is going to pay off the Euro-bonds when they become due since we are losing jobs everyday & our export earnings have gone down?

It’s painful to see ur friend in power because u tasted and wanted to remain there. The way u r enjoying someone’s husband n she is languishing. Imwee u hv no morals we can never put u in power as women.

  18. I was on the Copperbelt and dont be cheated people there are not foolish, they understand very well what is happening now and their hope is in President Lungu. The overwhelming support President Lungu and PF has received and is continuing to receive is just phenomenal. They kopala people know very well that the dollar issue and loadsheding tempral challenges will be a thing of the past. In the mean time PF and President Lungu are delivering development as he promised.
    By the way, is it not laughable that this prostitute Nawakwi was the same person who was advising suggesting to the PF Government to close all the mines so that electricity supplied to the mines can be shared to the citizens? Has she forgotten her own rantings just a few months ago? According to her suggestion of closing…

    • @UFO. You were on the Copperbelt? I live on the Copperbelt and I know that PF is on the way out. @Brenda is commending PF for “building us roads…”. The point you fail to grasp is that whereas it is good to build roads, it is even better to build industries thay will create jobs, which in turn will bring in the money to pay those Euro-bonds! So can you tell us how PF will pay those Euro-bonds when they become due?
      Pipo need a source of livelihood which a road cannot bring! When we talk about mis-management, that is what we mean. It is obvious for those who have eyes to see. Those blinded by blind loyalty to PF will not see it. Zambia is greater than ECL & PF. Wait for 2016. The Zambians will speak at the ballot.

  19. Neither I nor other Zambians can ever respect a woman who grabs and destroys a a fellow woman’s home by stealing someone’s husband, NEVER! Moreover, is this not the same Nawakwi who was suggesting to President Lungu to close the mines some months ago so that the excess electricity could sold to the few dollars? Did she ever think and care about the welfare of the miners and the job losses that could have happened?
    I we, Nawakwi, we all know that first you are illegally representing FDD and secondly you served i four Government Ministries , Finance, Energy, Agriculture and Labour, what can you vividly point at which you did if you have a vision? We all know, that mama, you are just biiter like HH because President Lungu walloped you clean at first attempt and he is developing Zambia…

I know you’re somehow related to or employed by lungu’s govt no sensible person can talk trash of Mwanawasa’s legacy. It was Mwanawasa who made it possible for you pathetic Fools to be able to borrow large sums of money like this. You know what, i can’t dialogue with you, you dont reason, so I’ll just say panyo pako. We Mwanawambwa.

  20. In the 8 years Mwanawasa ruled Zambia, he only did two things; the Luapula bridge and Levi Hospital. PF has been in power for 4 years, the development we are seeing are countless from roads, hospitals, Universities, agriculture, airports, shopping malls, and much more to mention.
    Under 5 was asked how long it would take to bring development, he had no clue and never gave a roadmap and you call such a person intelligent, maybe in Tonga land.

They all have been there before and we all know they dont have the capacity and the mantle. Maybe let them try something after 2026!

What is the use of roads when not one investor has come?? Where are the so called investors we are promised need roads to invest????

    What is this thing of EL being Humble, Can a Humble man buy all those new suits and change the colour of his hair at the expense of the suffering Zambian,
    The only humble president the world will ever see is the former Venezuela, He used his old VW beetle and lived in his own house with no security.
    Now that’s is what you call humble not EL with more that 50 suits in less than a year.
    If this EL will not go next year, Then there is a big problem with us Zambians.

We Zambians are ungrateful, good at appreciating the dead, the level of developmental projects that are taking place in our country was last seen in the 1970s, because we were spoiled by kk , to is day we still want free things that time is gone, pls can will learn to work hard.We don’t have patience, lazy, beer drinking,etc. Just the money sent on alcohol in Zambia is alarming, poverty is in our minds therefore we do to change the way we think and do things. The President has called for a change of attitude towards work. Viva pf.

Nawakwi you ate when you were finance minister and you can not point at what you did for the nation other than scandals of maize and employment of relatives in parastals.(State owned companies such as Zesco we know this). So mount a clean campaign of what your part will do for Zambia.

  27. For sure the opposition are in panic mode. One reason is that PF has never relented carrying out the development works they set out to do. They have been consistent especially with road works. They are not the type of government that only waits for election time to cheat people with fake works. So someone should tell me why I should vote out such a party. It would actually be more ridiculous to do that and hope that a different party will steer us to something better than what we have seen. Just think of the largest opposition party UPND, or even FDD themselves. What can they do differently? No more experiments bane!! I would rather we keep pushing the PF team to keep excelling.
