Former UPND vice president-political Richard Kapita

FORMER United Party for National Development (UPND) Vice President Richard Kapita has said the alleged training of militia by his former party is a sign that the opposition party is not willing to concede defeat in the August 11 general elections.

Mr Kapita, who is now Patriotic Front (PF) Central Committee chairperson for tourism, arts and culture, said in an interview yesterday that the alleged actions of the UPND were a desperate ploy in view of an impending defeat in the elections.

The UPND was alleged to be training about 250 youths in Lusaka as militias to destabilise the country after the elections. The 21 suspected UPND cadres apprehended by the police at the weekend were suspected by the law enforcement agency to be part of the said battalion.

Mr Kapita said it was unfortunate for the opposition party to resort to violence while the country was recognised as a global beacon of peace.

“The training of the militia by UPND shows desperation of the highest order after realising that President Edgar Lungu will win the August 11 elections by more than 60 per cent.

“The UPND wants to portray a picture that the elections will be rigged and that is why they have resorted to these desperate measures,” he said.

Mr Kapita appealed to the opposition party’s leadership to restrain its cadres from perpetrating mischief.

“My appeal to the UPND leadership is that Zambians are peace-loving people and we would rather have peace than a president who says there will be no peace unless I am president. Zambians are mature enough and certainly they cannot vote for such a president,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bible Gospel Church in Africa (BIGOCA) overseer Peter Ndhlovu has suggested that anyone spearheading militias in their party structures is a danger to peace and should be imprisoned.

Bishop Ndhlovu said in a separate interview that President Lungu’s allegation that the UPND was training a military force should be taken seriously as it was based on intelligence information.

He said any political party plotting to take the law into its own hands ahead of the elections had realised that it was facing the prospect of defeat.

“The President said it and such a pronouncement should be taken seriously because it is based on an intelligence report. “We cannot have militia people in this country and that (UPND) group should be disbanded immediately and the people behind it must be caged,” Bishop Ndhlovu said.

During the raid of a gymnasium in Villa Elizabetha in Lusaka, police seized assorted offensive weapons and drugs.

Inspector General of Police, Kakoma Kanganja said yesterday that the 21 suspected UPND cadres apprehended at UPND vice-president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba’s premises on Saturday would be prosecuted in the courts of law.

Mr Kanganja said the arrest of the 21 people should serve as an eye-opener that the law enforcement agency would not relent in its quest to maintain law and order.

“All the suspects found wanting will be taken to court and prosecuted in accordance with what the law stipulates. This is an eye-opener that all those wanting to destabilise the country will be dealt with full force because we won’t watch people take for granted the peace that this country has been enjoying,” he said.

    • Mr Kapita has been quiet for a long time, it looks like like there will be a lot of interesting times in the days ahead. On the militia Zambia needs objective people who are consistent in rejecting and have zero tolerance for every type of militia without fear or favor, where has everyone been when people were injured and killed in the past.

    • Even with Google Earth, GPS and other geographical locating devices you guys cant find the “Army Base” for this so-called UPDN “Militia”? Interesting!

      I wish all the candidates well in the forthcoming Presidential Election this August. Lets all pray for a United Zambia. Mr Kapita, you are entitled to your speculation and opinions. Just dont burn your bridges, you never know what tomorrow holds.

    • If you are old enough you will realise that this story of training militia is as old as Zambia’s multi partyism don’t forget that even PF was accussed of the same in the past …. this is when the intelligence is too lazy to develop new tactics and keep telling their new masters a tired story.

    • Let him just continue chewing UPND campaign funds that he stole. After all he has no influence except for his one cousin he defected with to PF. We now have the powerful GBM to deliver the powerful northern, luapula and muchinga provinces as we consolidate northwestern provinces to as high as 98%.

    • UPND needs to play its cards very well and completely tame it’s cadres unless they are attacked. Actually they should always carry cameras and phones to record the provocations by PF in order to provide evidence. Where ever UPND meetings are held, cameramen should be in sight recording all provocations from start to end. This is due to the fact that everything Edgar Lungu had relied on has failed. The tribal tug, the privatisation tug, the so called “unprecedented infrastructure development” which does not quench the hunger away from the masses and the rigging strategy have all failed. The last resort is to foment violence and postpone elections citing violence from opposition parties. This is their only hope and from what is going on the country and the increasing pronouncements by…

      PF is becoming a bigger and bigger JOKE every day! When are they going to tell us how they plan to pay back the KALOBA they have borrowed? Or are they trying to hide that away from the Zambian people?

    • Kapita ni omfuta chabe. It s the people who want change who won’t accept PF for another term.

      If Lungu thinks the men and women in uniform are behind him ,he is kidding himself because come 13th August 2016 they will act to protect our democracy like they did to remove KK and stop Chiluba’s third term bid.

      Men and women in uniform already know that PF is only enriching their bosses and neglecting them to suffer with the rest of the population. So for Lungu to think that he if he loses elections he will be allowed to command them is total madness. Zambia is not Zimbabwe.

      VIVA UPND the party of choice 2016.

  1. Geoffrey Mwamba is a former PF member, a party well known for panga wielding militia, what would stop him from importing these tactics into UPND?
    Kapita is a former UPND member trying hard to discredit the party that used to feed him. Its time the youth saw through these opportunistic and selfish politicians. Stop being used in these senseless violent campaigns. Even here on social media you insult and threaten each other with violence, for what? A selfish politician who doesn’t even care for you?

Right now corruption in Zambia under PF is at its highest! How can you have leaders at all levels in the PF Government being involved in corruption at such an alarming rate and with impunity!

UPND has lost support from the common Zambian because of a useless Under 5 dictator who supports violence and rewards the violent UPND thugs with heroism. (HH) repent of your evil ways and get circumcized. Your filthy skin has contaminated your cattle mind which is making you spread hatred in the once peaceful Zambia. You idyot you think you own UPND and Southern Province.

Your attacking on UPND won’t bring any value to you. Please just concentrate on mobilizing your party than wasting your time on petty issues. HH is winning these elections whether you like it or not. People of Zambia have already decided. Viva UPND.

    • @Assage there is nothing wrong for any political party to have a strong youth team.The youths do a lot of door to door campaign and need to be physically fit.These youths can help in mobilization and protect leaders during times of aggression especially in Africa were the institutions of Governance are weak and the separation of power is not respected by the executive.So UPND is order and it is not training any militia.

    If Sgt. Foday Sankoh could create an army, I don’t think GBM would fail to create a more effective one. After all people who join these armies are disillusioned ones. Kadansa has made young people despondent & ripe for conversion. Anyone who wants an army should just look for CBU & UNZA students.

A great leader is judged by the manner he handles challenges and NOT bitterness, envy, jealous, violence and pretence.

    How many times have we told you sleepy brains that presidential elections are far different from others; You think HH can still stand and win? Shame on you poor lads, you are blank in your brains. The current situation is so different from 1991, 2006, 2008, 2011 and even 2015 during many times HH lost and has the same losing traits within him. How many times have people called for change of the presidential candidate? Just because he has money you think he will get it. I repeat, if HH is not replaced, with the 50+1 formula, UPND will have the most deserted funeral. Personally I wont attend, because I have attended enough of the ELECTION LOSS FUNERALS. It is headache! BB, Kalomo

Pf has caused misery to many Zambians through its bad leadership. .Pf is slowly melting away..It is pf that should accept defeat in the coming elections. From what is obtaining on the ground, if elections were to be held today, pf would walk away with 15% All pf dreams about is hate speeches and violence and this will contribute to their loss.

  25. This casual talk of party militia should cease to pave way for the relevant security agents to subject all parties to scrutiny to the core. In the same breath, the ECZ must guarantee a 100% free and fair election otherwise anything short of this may lead to sporadic cases of violence and eventually set the whole country alight, something that may not necessary be pre-arranged. This casual reference of militia may be a ploy to silence others when the ECZ handles the elections in the recent Ugandan style. Lets evaluate both sides of the coin.

    (1) Even if a Tonga person is capable of sorting out economic problems we are currently going through , someone from northern half will say no.
    (2) People from northern half believe that ,the presidency of Zambia is their personal to holder, it does not matter whether one is capable of running the affairs or not.
    (3) The accumulation of debts is the way forward for some people

    Just mark my words wait until 2035 , this country will be broke no money to pay even basic services or salaries.

And you have PF superiors lying ati things are okay? They are not okay!! Things are getting bad we need a strong and progressive campaign team to turn things around before August.

    I hate to mention it but violence is the worst form of campaign strategy. Mobilizing halfwits to chase away opposition leaders from PF strongholds does not convince the voters to vote for you, you either scare away your own potential voters from voting or you turn them against yourselves. Worst still they vote in protest against your violence. It’s that simple, how many times do you want me to tell you to stop this violence? I have suggestions to the powers…

  51. that be:-

    1. Mobilize a strong campaign team with the same speed and zeal you mobilize violent groups that rush to disrupt opposition meetings. Let’s leave the opposition to campaign freely so that when we win they will not start rushing to court to challenge the results. If we continue to disrupt opposition meetings voters will start to think we are hiding something or are scared to lose.

    2. Remove all violent groups from the structures of PF because if memory serves us right, most of these guys who are fomenting violence were the same people who made MMD become unpopular on the copperbelt.

  52. and not violence

    4. The hot one, and this is serious, REMOVE CHAMA from the position of Secretary General, I don’t care if he has millions of kwachas to help fund the campaign but the man has no polical language. He is better suited to be a mere cadre not SG. A good leader must be humble and quick to apologise whenever he wrongs others, not this man. His attitude has actually confirmed zero votes from 4 provinces. Chama has actually failed to come up with a campaign team that will see this great party retain power this August.
    Yelling to pipo ifintu ni Lungu is not enough, we need pipo that will say Ifintu ni Lungu because Lungu has achieved abcd.

    I once said the president must start embarrassing pipo in public those who humiliate him in public. I still say so because I am sure he…

  56. Looking at the blogs in this column, it is easy to tell that UPND is having the last kicks of a dying horse! There is so much bitterness, self denial and vengefulness all for nothing!

  59. UPND should pray for a high voter turnout, its what favours the opposition. low voter turn out will favour PF. the picture recorded in January was largely due to low turn out in perceived PF stronghold. only southern recorded above 50% voter turn out. any slight increase in the PF bedroom if they still have any will spell do on UPND project. may the best team win
