Father Bwalya on Chilubi Island Trip
Father Bwalya on Chilubi Island Trip

THE Patriotic Front (PF) will not start any premature campaigns ahead of the 2016 general elections because Parliament has not been dissolved.

Information and publicity committee chairperson Frank Bwalya said his party is law-abiding and will not abrogate the laws of the country.

“We are a law-abiding political party and as such, we will wait for the dissolution of the Parliament and we will also wait for the Electoral Commission of Zambia to announce the date for the campaigns to start,” he said.

Father Bwalya said his party has been holding party mobilisation meetings, but these have been misconstrued to be campaigns.

He said some political parties that do not have structures on the ground have been accusing the PF of starting campaigns before the election date is announced.

Fr Bwalya said campaigns for the PF are being done by the several development projects which the country is experiencing at the moment.

He also said lack of structures on the ground has been forcing some opposition parties to hold rallies which contravene the Public Order Act.

Fr Bwalya urged other parties to consider mobilising their party membership, unlike holding rallies without informing police.

He said the PF has been doing a lot of visitations in the field, a gesture which has earned the party a good reputation across the country.

Fr Bwalya said the holding of rallies without informing police will not help the opposition win the 2016 elections, but will only tarnish their image.

    • Frank Bwalya is stupid. Instead of advocating to immediately make changes to the Public Order Act to suit modern times Frank comes up with foolish talk. Opposition leaders are being arrested for visitations just in case this nut case didn’t know. But seriously , where does PF get these mental cases, Davies Chama, Mumbi Phiri, Sunday Chanda and now Frank Bwalya?

    • Well, who cares whether you have started campaigning or not? You’re on your way out in the next few months.

    • Any half brained person can get billions of dollars of kaloba and construct some infrastructure. That is not what we wasn’t as Zambians this time. we want demonstrated evidence of prudent management of our resources; we want the economy to be felt in our pockets. etc.

    • For real a shameless liar, but claiming himself a man of God… if could be a Muslim was better because he would lie and kill innocent souls openly in the name of god of darkness allah (devil) that would be normal for him……

  2. “In any country where people will convince each other that black is white and white is black then everybody in that country is a slave”. The Priest so loves this World so much that he is determined to issue conflicting statements. Is State house heaven now?

  3. God Almighty, the true God who created what we see and what we do not see, the one who searches the hearts of men and see what is therein is very much aware and particular Zambian situation and of the hypocrisy that reigns in the PF government officials, even people like Frank Bwalya and nothing is hidden from HIM. He will redeem His own with great power and mighty out of the hand of these devils who are drank with physical power and lies. They even deny the evil they do day in and day out and still claim PF is a peaceful party, ZNBC, Times of Zambia and the Zambia Daily Mail covers all spheres of the Zambian nation including the opposition and so on and so forth, lies after lies which are contrary to the truth. God almighty’ s reaction against this evil is becoming clearer and clearer…

  8. @ Suntwe wa Suntwe

    How on earth will your UPND gunner the 50%+1 vote as required by our new constitution? On tribal inclination, NO, on fake lies and fake promises, NO! So you know who will be in State House again in 2016 and beyond, dont you?

  9. From a logical and legal point of view. Every party worth its name and relevance is ‘campaigning’ the type of campaigning is different to electoral campaigns, where specific candidate’s names are floated. All parties by issuing various political statement(s) by default are campaigning. More impotently the statements as long as they are not contravene the law, imply its ok by all parties to continue ”campaigning” its that simple.

  11. From the insults being hurled by ba UPND on this forum,you can tell that the tribal party has lost direction.What has Father Bwalya said to deserve such harsh language.All well meaning Zambians will give PF another mandate going by their remarkable record so far on developmental issues.

    • It is not what he has said now but what he has been saying in the past months. This man has no shame or principles. When he differed with PF he even claimed to be Tonga at some point. But since he went back to PF he has been patrolling Bangweulu and all these places apart from Southern Province.

  12. amenshi yakonka umufolo,the issue we have today came from this, The policy debates between UNIP and the ANC during the 1960s were robust and parliament became a forum for criticism of government policy. Despite being unable to win nation-wide support, somehow the ANC under Old Harry provided a credible political alternative to UNIP and posed a serious challenge to UNIP’s hold on power in a number of regions, including, Eastern, Southern, Copperbelt and Western Provinces.

  13. the end of the 1960s with UNIP facing internal power struggles, opposition politics gained ascendancy. Splits within UNIP leading to the formation of United Party and United Progressive Party (UPP) the ruling party’s hold on power was seriously threatened. UNIP that had previously committed itself not to introduce a one-party state by legislation panicked by harassing opposition activists with detention, denial of access to markets and loan facilities from state-controlled financial institutions.history has alot to say.

  14. I am in Monze now the home of the outspoken……….who do not criticize constructively and do not mean well for this country.The roads which have been dusty since independence have been tarred by PF within a short period of time.No one can convince me to vote for a tribal party just because i am….ECL is the man of the people and Sata made a wise decision unlike Kabimba and GBM who were always fighting each other.God is great !

  15. Pf sees things the opposite way. When the public gathers for an orderly meeting, the pf and its police force disrupt such meetings and cause disorder. So it is no longer POA but Public Disorder Act.

  16. Development is all about people getting better. Are Zambians now better off or worse? Are our people able to have enough food and electricity?

  17. if HH wants to rule zambia he should follow what Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula said: …If you make your members feel they are below you, you will never get anywhere’. ‘People should feel you are with them and if possible undergo the same suffering’. How many of our present-day politicians practice the kind of politics Nkumbula advocated?ECL has exhibited that perfectly,ba HH no one can tell him what to do 2016 ni ECL

    • Ever heard of the “crabs in a bucket syndrome”?
      That’s what you are suggesting. No poor person will lift another poor person out of poverty. That’s why the doctrine of Jesus failed. Dude was a broke arse nig.

  18. we are seeing our politicians looking down on their members and literally paying for all the party expenses and support, when this could easily be borne by the membership. The days when parties were run on the basis of membership contributions are long gone. Today, party members present bills to Lusaka-based party officials for expenses which ordinarily should be borne by the local officials and membership. Nkumbula is turning in his grave as that is not the type of party organisation he championed for more than thirty years. Zambian politics has not only been commercialised, but also corrupted, especially in the last 17 years.that is why PF does not issue out membership cards nor regallia but they buy for themselves check the worksuits the barets and woody

  19. Thank god I am not illiterate otherwise I would be inclined to believe such lies from a former priest. The catholics should be ashamed.

    • @Mwe bantu: “…..The Catholics should be ashamed….” Why should they be ashamed? Each one will be judged individually. Why condemn everyone for the untruthfulness, as you put it, of one person? My God will judge me as “me” and will judge you as “you” and not collectively. Mwamvetsetsa?? Zikomo.

  20. The problem with upnd u like insults too much.i have observed that some some upnd carders’ who operate at katondo street are the ones who insults the president and Pf administration and every time they post any comment they just insult while change there names from Tonga bull to bemba names thinking they will shake of not at all.they are the same pipo who post mostly as though they are many when infact no.u fools stop using other tribes names just because u a trabalist.4 of u posting the some things thinking u are many that’s why u don’t win an election.

  22. Are constructing a road a measure of development ? Definetely no! Chiluba mended the roads and so was RB and then ECL. Its a continuation from where RB left. Infact during RB era, many people built more houses than now, the reason being the Kwacha was strong at K5.00 per dollar. Dollar is now changed at K11. This time all the govt revenue goes to pay civil servants salaries and allowances leaving the other masses with no money in their pockets. Shame PF.

  25. This is how selfish this guy is. He is the only one wearing life saving safety jacket. It is a clear testimony that he doesn’t care anyone else . All the people in the bat can drown but fake father Bwalya must be saved from drowning by a safety jacket. He should have been the first one to demand that all the people on boat meet the required health and safety standards before setting off.Those with eyes should realise that Ka shi colour aka only cares about himself.

  26. i have failed to understand this man called father bwalya, honestly to say, he is not worth anythng to be called a father. He’s talking about infrustracture which Mr Sata left in progress when he past on, mhsrinp. ECL has done nothing to be elevated, its not long when this man boza bwalya was strongly, attacking former president RB of not being a good leader and charismatic. But today where is rb? there in a same party, boza bwalya are you not even ashamed of yourself adressing yourself as a father, you don’t have conscience, can you stop it you demon.
