UPND SHOULD BE WARNED NOT TO DRAG THE MWINE LUBEMBA CHITIMUKULU IN ITS TRIBAL CIRCUS – SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE

Mpika, Zambia, 31ST December 2015 – We wish to caution the United Party for National Development (UPND) leadership to desist from dragging their Royal Highnesses in their desperation to throw their infamous tribal jacket. The statement purported to have been issued by the Bashi Lubemba denouncing Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Mr. Davies Chama goes to expose the lowest levels the UPND is prepared to sink to in order to dupe the unsuspecting public.

UPND and Mr. Hichilema must admit that on 20th January 2015, Zambians elected His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to preside over the affairs of the nation and he has been equal to the task. While UPND and the cartel presented President Lungu as a feeble and visionless leader, Zambians can attest that President Lungu is that unifier, inclusive, humble and visionary leader Zambia needs. As 2016 dawns on us, Zambians can be assured of President Lungu’s commitment to a new constitution order as demanded for by different generations of Zambians. While the country would face challenges on different fronts, President Lungu has continued to provide leadership while the Opposition, especially UPND has failed to provide solid alternatives in national discourse.

As we enter 2016, we are calling on the UPND and Mr. Hichilema to among other things:

1. Re-claim the UPND of late Anderson Mazoka, Patrick Chisanga, Sakwiba Sikota, Bob Sichinga and many others which was issue-based and went further to provide alternative policy alternatives, including an alternative national budget; This is the only way they will be seen to be adding value to Zambia’s democratic process.

2. Denounce the violent and bloody Mapatizya formula and all other forms of violence

3. Declare a day of atonement when they would repent in sack cloth and ashes of its tribalism, which should include Mr. Hichilema denouncing the tribal cradle which gave him political birthing;

4. Commit to carrying journalists and the media when they campaign in Southern Province so that Zambians can weigh in on the content and context of the message they give to the unsuspecting electorate;

5. Cease to portray themselves as representatives and owners of the Tonga-speaking people. They should also repent for attempting to use a great tribe as the Tongas as their human shield. We say so fully convinced that the people of Southern Province are independent and honourable citizens of the Republic of Zambia who were born free to choose their own political belonging without any form of blackmail and political misrepresentation;

6. Issue a public apology to the Bashi Lubemba and the Mwine Lubemba Chitimukulu Kanyanta-Manga and indeed the Bemba-speaking people because we have no doubt that they were behind the manufacturing of lies peddled as those of His Royal Highness by some media houses. The country has never seen such levels of desperation as manifested by UPND!

7. Take responsibility for Mr. Munkombwe’s tribal mantra during a UPND rally and impliedly endorsed by Mr. Hichilema’s that: “We the Tongas have always been very supportive of other tribes who ruled this country and there is nothing wrong for us now to demand for leadership as well. Leadership should be revolving; now it’s a Tonga, next is a Lozi and later Luvale then at least we can give it back to the Bembas who have dominated it for a long time.”

8. Clarify why Mr. Hichilema’s pronouncement in Chingola to bring back Anglo-America failed to disclose that he was a shareholder under Anglo-Gold, a subsidiary of Anglo-American. We question why Mr. Hichilema would push for Anglo-American’s returning to Zambia to run the country’s Copper Mines when he knew too well that he is an interested party and has not disclosed this interest to the Zambian people.

9. To change their stance on matters of Prayer and Christianity since Zambia is a Christian Nation. This is against UPND’s anti-prayer stance as evidenced prior to the 18th October 2015 when Mr. Hichilema condemned President Lungu for Declaring a Day of National Prayers, Fasting and Reconciliation and Gazetting it as a Public Holiday.

In conclusion, we want to thank the people of Zambia for rejecting tribalism and all tribal elements because they believe that we are ‘One Zambia, One Nation’. Zambians from all walks of life and different parts of the country can be assured that PF remains an ‘open church’ and Zambia’s number one (1) party of choice which is dedicated to implementing a people-driven and pro-poor development agenda. We remain ready to engage all other political parties in the nation in civilized and development oriented politics as commit to pushing the frontiers of poverty and creating a better life for all Zambians.

We wish all Zambians a prosperous 2016 as we walk hand in hand to create a better Zambia for all under the able leadership of President Lungu and PF.

    • Sunday and his PF are very funny people. Now they have realised that their tribal talk has not traction among Zambians, they have started to panic. The Chitimukulu offered wise counsel thru his representative on ZNBC. Let us not forget that it was when Edgar was minister at Home Affairs that police were sent to harass the Chitimukulu. Sunday, tell the Zambian how in remaining 7 months Edgar will deliver on PF promises not this nonsense about tribalism, violence and privatization

    • If you really want to know how messed  UPND is, just look at its UK UPND Branch.

      UPND UK is a joke to say the least. It has two groups fighting each other –  both headed by lunatics.

      The UK Branch split up on tribal bearings. The new party Branch was a runaway group, formed as a club which  could not agree with what was going on in its UK leadership. The irony is that HH  blessed the split and was full of praise.

      One group is run by a Tonga Tribalist Lunatic of a Woman and the other by a Luvale Man an Egomistic Meniac

      These two groups are constantly at war, always in competition like two prostitutes.

  2. To say the least, this man is hell bent on tarnishing the opposition. especially the upnd.
    He should fist and for almost let us know how inflation has tripled from low of about 7 percent in sept to the high of 21 percent in dec.
    He should explain about job creation and job losses.
    He should stop pretending about Mazoka, his uncles were the same against Mazoka and they have past on the button to him.
    He can also talk about the kwacha’s lost value.
    What has come out of the infamous prayer day.
    Reckless borrowing.
    Also blocking and beating opposition using police and his misguided supporters.
    Many other issues, than clinging to what his fathers and uncles propagated during Mazoka. Plz leave Mazoka alone, only a devil does what you are doing, time will judge you.
    Happily, the…

    • IT IS SURPRISING WHY THE HATE OF TONGAS HAS GONE SO FAR WITH THE TRIBALISTS LIKE SUNDAY CHANDA, DAVIS CHAMA, CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI AND MUMBI MARRIED TO MR PHIRI. ALL THESE ARE BEMBAS AND THERE ARE GOOD BEMBAS WHO ARE SMART LIKE ME. WHY DO YOU ALWAYS TALK ABOUT TRIBAL DIVISIONS EVERY DAY? IF WE CAN GO AHEAD AND TELL THE NATION WHAT THE LATE PRESIDENT SAID, WHAT YOUR MOUTHS (CHISHIMBA, SUNDAY, MUMBI AND KAMBWILI) HAVE SPIT OUT SO FAR, WHAT WILL WE CONCLUDE? MORE OVER YOU ARE FROM ALL OF YOU ARE FROM THE SAME REGION.
      ZAMBIA IS BIG AND THERE ARE SO MANY ETHNIC TRIBES. WE ARE TIRED WITH YOUR SARCASTIC AND DIVIDING LANGUAGE.
      MY ADVICE TO THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA, PLEASE DON’T LISTEN TO THESE TRIBALISTS WHO WANT TO DIVIDE ZAMBIA INTO REGIONALISATION.

  7. Why is it that HH owns Shares in all the companies he helped the zambian govt privitise?? That’s why his consultancy skills have been questioned time and again. HH isn’t an innocent soul in the privitization history of our great country. Even God in heaven will question hh at that great day over the same!

  10. But why is it hard for us to admit that we all possess tribal demons within us.why should Chanda,chama,mumbi phiri throw a tribal coat for HH to fit in.but its so surprising that these guys are perfectly dressed in it.Zambia is not for one or two tribes,and power should be rotational.And our demand paints a different picture.why didn’t this man call on RB to denounce the issue of wako ni wako.but these hypocrites need to zip their mouths.

  12. Fun how these PF party guys always use reverse tribal card on UPND and HH at opportune times during election year. They act all victim and yet they sing this tribal accusations against UPND on national public mass media platforms in order to alienate potential Bemba voters against the UPND. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no HH or UPND fun but I have been observing and following this tit-for-tat tribal rhetoric. Look how he has gone as far back as how HH came to power and using Munkombwe, yet he’s quiet on Davis Chama and Sampa’s tribal rhetoric.

    You could easily read between the lines that the PF machine had everything to do with that second rebuttal article supposedly by the Chitimukulu. I think from where i’m sitting the desperation is on the PF side… why is Sunday Chanda…

  17. Mr. Chanda, who cares a f*ck about your childish ranting. Tell us what are you doiubg to take Country out of the mess which you have created. That is the issue, not HH or any body else. What is your manifesto to take us out of ever increasing poverty? We want jobs, food, education for our children, basic medical care, personal security………..
    THAT IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT. Your *****ic bickering has reached limit. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO REVERSE DECLINE?

  18. Perfect article that exposes UPND and HH as an insincere and desperate lot. We say NO to tribalism. And if UPND and tribalism are inseparable, then we also say NO to UPND.

  19. Kachemas point number (3) in the article is very important to note as it may earn upmd a ticket to state house as I quote;”Declare a day of atonement when they would repent in sack cloth and ashes of its tribalism,which should include mr Hichilema denouncing the Tribal cradle that gave him political birthing”.Kachemas reflect on this point seriously!
