UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda
UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda

UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) vice-president Canisius Banda is on the verge of eviction after failing to settle his house rentals.

His landlady, Chali Tumelo, alleges that Dr Banda has been a difficult tenant in paying the rentals.

“He has been staying in my house for nine years and paying rent has been very difficult. Sometimes Dr Banda would pay rentals after a month or at times, it takes two months for him to pay. After so many defaults, we decided to give him seven days ultimatum in which to pay, but still he has continued defaulting,” she said.

Ms Tumelo said Dr Banda pays K5,500 per month, although the market rate in PHI is between K7,000 and K8,000.

“The money he is paying is very little. We have not increased rentals because he has been there for a long time. I had planned to evict him but he pleaded with us, and we gave him a chance because at the time, he had lost his wife,” she said.

Ms Tumelo said she entered into a new contract with Dr Banda, but he has continued defaulting, and that when she asked for the payment of rentals, he allegedly went to the extent of insulting her.

“I have all the text messages as proof of the insults he sent to my mobile phone. Dr Banda started treating me as though I was his tenant and he was the landlord. My lawyer and I have asked him to vacate the house on March 31st,” she said.

Ms Tumelo said she has asked Dr Banda to renovate her house before moving out.

But Dr Banda said the allegation is not true and that he has hardly known Ms Tumelo.

Dr Banda said some people are trying to taint his name because he is a politician.

  1. Comment:But according to the law,you are supposed to give a tenant three months notice before you evict someone from a rented house which makes me wonder if this lady really has a lawyer.She also says he sometimes pays after a month and sometimes after two months,the question is when is he really supposed to be paying? Anyone who has a rental house in Lusaka like I do will tell you that you have to be extremely lucky to have a tenant who can consistently pay you after a month or two months for nine years.I smell something fishy here.This woman is being used.

    • The fact is he has been defaulting. Why can’t he build his own house for that matter and besides a man of that status (Vice President+Doctor+no house+over 40years=a fool at 40). Therefore, whether the lady is wrong or not, Vice President Dr Banda should own a house befitting his status.

    • warning to would be politicians.
      before you join politics, make sure that you get rid of all skeletons in your closet and those of your family members otherwise they will be exposed just before elections just to get rid of you.
      our doctor is now paying the price after being so loyal to hh over the years.
      this embarrassment is coming from within upnd cos of the running mate issue and gbm can be the architect of the scheme.
      why is this coming out now just after gbm’s entry in upnd?
      remember the gbm vs kabimba fight…..

    • I know this woman, she is a psychopath……and I think this is politically motivated, soon you will hear Kambwili talking about this on ZNBC.

      I pay my rentals after every 3 months, does that mean that I don’t pay? Show us the terms of payment from the contract, it is not very common for people to pay rentals every single month, mostly, people pay 2-3 months in advance.

    • Canisius is one of the few honest politicians in this land. If he denies this Tumelo then he has very little contact with her. I would challenge this woman to publish those texts.
      In any case why keep a problem tenant for nine years.
      We have been warned. The harassment is only going to get worse.

    • WHY Did she wait to this? If she truly believes that she can get 7,000 in PHI, evict him and get new tenant. PHI is not Kabulonga, the market price is exaggerated.

      Now to Dr Banda?? at your age??? you have no house of your own? what embarrassment is this? he will steal when he gets into power, just like Lungu? HH change this guy, he does not deserve the position..

    • SO, AS A POLITICIAN WHEN YOU DEFAULT YOUR RENTALS LANDLORDS SHOULDN’T REMIND YOU TO PAY OR EVEN COMPLAIN? AND AS A POLITICIAN YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO INSULT YOUR LANDLORDS? DON’T PRE-EMPTY PEOPLE WHO ARE GENUINELY TRYING TO ASK FOR WHAT BELONGS TO THEM. IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHY DIDN’T CB JUST GET A MORTGAGE? I THOUGHT A MEDICAL DOCTOR CAN AFFORD A MORTGAGE. WHY STILL RENT IF YOU ARE A MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO GETS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR A MORTGAGE? GUYS, LET’S LEARN FROM THE TSWANA PEOPLE.

    • This crude thinking must go!! Who said when some rents a house, he has no house of his/her own? People rent for various reasons: Proximity to areas of operations could be one of the reasons just like people build houses for different reasons like where you would like to settle after retirement. So if you would settle in Mongu and currently in Chipata would you build one? Get a tranfer to Ndola you build another one? N0nsesical!!!

    • He has been staying in my house for nine years and paying rent has been very difficult. Sometimes Dr Banda would pay rentals after a month or at times, it takes two months for him to pay…

      Surely the statement above is from a landlady with little or no appreciation of business. If you have a tent taking one or two months to pay you and he/she has occupied your house for 9 years, one should be thankful. Chances are that landlady is being used politically are high. For you own information landlady, you cannot give 7 days notice, that is illegal. Ask for legal guidance before, you have the courts put that notice on hold and your tent will leave in that house rent free till the case is disposed off in courts of law.

  2. Im not so much concerned about his name being dragged into the mud, I’m more concerned with the fact that he has been renting for 9yrs. He is a doctor. It is shameful for someone at his age to still be renting.

    • This is strange. When someone has a mansion like HH, you say he stole money from privatisation. When Banda rents a house you say its shameful. What I know is that it is very expensive to build a house in Lusaka. Only big business men can manage. All others are stealing money in their work places to build, the so called deals, but thats stealing.

    • UPND Supporter,

      Canisius Banda is a renowned medical doctor who held high profile positions in the Ministry of Health for more than ten years before he joined politics. Given his prominence as a public figure, it is very easy fr him to obtain a mortgage from Zambia Building Society. I know many of his juniors at the Ministry who have built houses. There is just something wrong with him.

    • @William Banda,just like others have said,building a house takes a lot and it is not fair to laugh at Dr.Banda in this way! In fact he MAY HAVE A HOUSE but it may NOT be in LUSAKA but ELSEWHERE,where it could have been easier for him to build! Not everyone can own a house at the same time that is why in organised countries,Real Estate is real business because building is costly and returns on investment take time to realise. What we have in Zambia is a disorganized system where every person does for themselves as a result we have confused residential areas without adequate planned services needed in this modern time,shanties and repeated cholera outbreaks and a totally shabby looking capital city!

Hichilema and his styupid economic theorists. What economic model supports an aspiring Vice President living for a decade, in a rented house he can’t afford? This is truly an embarrassment for the proud goat (HH). Remove the feaces in your kraal before pointing a finger at the Productive Farmers (PF)

      Today in Lusaka anyone who is sympathetic to the opposition is brutalized and banished from markets, taxi ranks and bus stops. This PF militia operates under and is controlled ultimately by EC Lungu.

      We call upon the International Criminal Court to start investigations for prosecution of PF criminal militia commanders.

    • MY FRIEND CANISIUS BANDA’S CASE HAS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH RESIDENCE PERMIT ABROAD/OVERSEAS. BANDA IS NOT OVERSEAS. HE IS IN HIS HOMELAND WITH NO IMMIGRATION CONSTRAINTS AND A MEDICAL DOCTOR FOR THAT MATTER. IF MEDICAL DOCTORS ARE NOT GOING TO AFFORD A HOUSE THEN WHAT PROFESSIONS WILL? THE MAN IS JUST GROSSLY IRRESPONSIBLE AND SHAMELESS. MY GUESS IS THAT BANDA HAS BEEN WAITING IN HOPE THAT ONE DAY UPND WINS ELECTIONS AND WHEN IN GOV STILLS MONEY FOR HIS MANSION. UPND FUULS ARE JUST DEFENDING THE UN DEFEND-ABLE. BE CAREFUL ZAMBIANS. THAT’S TROUBLE IN THE MAKING FOR YOU. VOTE WISELY. VOTE ECL/PF.

  24. Dr Banda at your age you are still renting but we all know why. The money you where paid as salaries, your per diems, the salary advances the loans all went to ‘supporting’ others other than your own. Who doesn’t know the constant complaints from mai Banda when we met at kitchen parties and ofcourse since you come out as a holy man most of us thought she was lying…until she passed on…then you and your journalist ‘friend’ went live on television. How can you manage government coffers when you are a pauper? You will be a high risk factor to the people….please just settle the landlady difficult as she is…move out get a loan from HH since he says he assists a lot of people…but don’t try and borrow from GBM he will beat you up if you default

    • @Ellen,you are wrong!Building a house takes a lot and it is not fair to laugh at Dr.Banda in this way! In fact he MAY HAVE A HOUSE but it may NOT be in LUSAKA but ELSEWHERE,where it could have been easier for him to build! Not everyone can own a house at the same time that is why in organised countries,Real Estate is real business because building is costly and returns on investment take time to realise. What we have in Zambia is a disorganized system where every person does for themselves as a result we have confused residential areas without adequate planned services needed in this modern time,shanties and repeated cholera outbreaks and a totally shabby looking capital city!

  26. You don’t have to be religious to benefit from this line “Naked we came and naked we will go”. Things become so much easier if one goes by this principle. Most of what bloggers are saying here is irrelevant and largely attacks on persons. If Doc Banda chose to rent rather than own, respect his choice. Banda must however not fail to meet his obligations and must live by consequences of his choice. Not everyone can own or build property.

    I am aware that other than a small minority of legit owners of quality property in Zambia, many of the so called landlords acquired theirs from the Chiluba sell-off and continued plunder of government assets. The rush by all and sundry to have a house is what has led to the mushrooming of under serviced sub-standard buildings and shanties in the…

      In these posts Zambians were doing what they know best – laugh at those who appear less able than ‘I am’ and stupidly envy those who seem to have more than ‘I have’. While personal initiative must be supported and encouraged, it is a whole big and complex issue how best we can better develop our spaces in Zambia and we have a lot to learn from elsewhere!

      What does it benefit one in the long run to have a fancy mansion with no guaranteed good water, no serviced sewer and no street lighting to mention a few? Is that what we want for ourselves and as things are, will those services ever improve in the foreseable future?

  31. To all tenants being harassed by Landlord, I refer you to the Rent Act Chapter 206 of the Laws of Zambia.

    (Ref. Fred Mudenda, Land Law in Zambia): The purpose of the Rent Act in general, is for the protection of tenants of dwelling houses. This protection is largely achieved under the Rent Act by limitation of rent payable and provision of a substantial measure of security of tenure. The limitation of rent payable is achieved under the Act through:-
    (a) the application of the concept of standard rent
    (b) the provisions of section 10 (demanding or accepting rent in excess of standard rent or advance of rent exceeding two months standard rent is criminalized)
    (c) Section 11 instances when the landlord may increase rent are circumscribed under the section.
    Security of tenure is…

    • (c) Section 11 instances when the landlord may increase rent are circumscribed under the section.
      Security of tenure is achieved under the Act, inter alia, through the wide powers vested into the Court under sections 4 and 5 of the Act, restrictions on right to take possession under section 13 by circumscribing the instances under which the tenant can be deprived of possession or forcibly removed by order of court. The taking of possession or ejectment of a tenant can only be done through the Court which has to be satisfied with the ground(s) advanced for the intended possession or ejectment. Section 14 of the Act further restricts the levy of distress of any premises except with leave of court. The restriction on payment of premium under section 15 of the Act provides further security…

IT’S COMMON SENSE (EVEN IF YOU DON’T SEEM TO HAVE ANY) THAT C BANDA WILL BECOME A THIEF BY INDUCTION IF IN THE UNLIKELY CIRCUMSTANCE THEY OCCUPY OFFICE. THIS IS A NO-BRAINER ISSUE. EVEN A DOG WOULD KNOW THAT. APART FROM ONE ‘ALMIGHTY’ HH ALMOST ALL OF THEM- UPND LEADERS ARE SCAVENGERS WHO WILL SALVAGE STATE COFFERS LIKE YOU NEVER WITNESSED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    And Dr Canisius Banda said the allegation is not true and that he has hardly known Ms Tumelo. Interesting story to follow up.

WHEN THEY BECOME FORMER, THE STATE LOOKS AFTER THEM FROM TAX PAYERS MONEY. IT’S A POLICY. DON’T COMPARE THE CASE OF KK TO THE ELITIST C BANDA. BANDA IS SIMPLY GROSSLY IRRESPONSIBLE. PERIOD. AND HE IS, JUST LIKE OTHER UPND LEADER, NOT TO BE ENTRUSTED WITH STATE COFFERS. THIS IS PLAIN AND SIMPLE- THEY WOULD STEAL.

  36. @Spaka like lilo, so for you guys in UPND a person is only corrupt if he is in PF. The moment that person joins UPND, he is clean? What kind of reasoning is that for a party that claims that it wants to introduce a new kind of politics in Zambia. Just look at the motley collection of corrupt elements that surround HH today. Exactly the same stu.pid thinking as Mmembe, who kept silent when he was controlling Mr Sata and his government. As soon as Mmembe lost control starting with the firing of Kabimba by Mr Sata, then suddenly Mmembe “begins to see” the same corruption which was always there and which he has always known.

  37. As for Dr Canissius Banda, this case reveals all that we know about some politicians. At this stage in his life the whole Vice president of UPND does not own a house? What would happen in the hypothetical assumption that UPND formed government and he became a minister or some other office? You bet he would be owning at least three mansions within one year. How, you ask? Well, what do you think Canissius wants to achieve in politics? Fill his tummy and balance sheet first, including to own his dream house. That is opposition for you, HH wants power and more wealth, his officials have their own ambitions and objectives: to be ministers, managing directors, ambassadors, DPP, attorney general etc etc. others just to have access to a market stall. Depends on their level, but bottom line is…

He knows he could steal money when he was a Deputy Minister but he deliberately didn’t. He could have even stolen some of the money meant for medical programmes but chose NOT to because he is a man of integrity….Why do you think public servants should stealing money to build their mansions??

  40. The elimination game plan for the running mate is taking an interesting twist in upnd. One Afrowig Savimbi moustache easterner veep is being dashed in the sewers of public embarrassment by a ploy of him not paying rentals. The other shapeless bag of wool boastiful & rude northerner veep is being fixed for non- possession of a G 12, allegations of running a militia and threats of trying to cut the presido’s throat. What these two pawns of veeps cant perceive is that at the center of the hive the southerners are busy garnering for the running mate’s vaccum. So wake up you two dull intruders of veeps because you will never be part and parcel of the southern kraal.

  43. I know this Chali Tumelo, that’s if she is the same lady I met in London Round 1980-85 or so. We lived at the You ng Women association YWCA, in Fitzrovia(Euston, Endsleigh Gardens), at a time we were all starting our studies. She was very intelligent and dedicated and a confirmed Christian. She was going to study Mechanical Engineering and was very studious, put us all to shame. I was doing my Computer Programming studies at the time.

    • The Chali Tumelo I remember was very honest and above board. I do not believe that she is lying. I believe her to be one of our brilliant minds and no wonder she has a house to rent to what is supposed to be opposition notables(yeah, notable for political mischief).

      No reason for her to put up with this character. Apart from rent owed, he is defiling her house with ant-gov’t activities. HH has big enough a house to keep him rent free for a while. In any case if Treason is found in the Drilling allegation, the gov’t will house them for free …in Jail. Basic accommodation maybe not suitable for their pompous minds, but good enough to retrain them into proper respectful citizens.

  46. The craving for wealth and power among UPND politicians is a no brainer. Haven’t you met them especially the aspiring candidates in person? They do not hide their personal or corrupt ambitions at all, maybe because they are so (over)confident that their messiah is a sure winner and they will just ride in his back. They think HH is unstoppable and so theirs is just to ride on his back. Seek them out and you will agree with me. They smell corruption and look like corruption itself? What I don’t know is whether they have consulted their boss HH at all. But I hear that he has told them to look after themselves as he has no intentions of dishing out his money, whatever that means. That is the calibre of persons you want in government. Mmembe also thinks that his cartel is assured of business…

Just because you own a house at foundation level in John Lenge does not give you the right to birrate others! I had a pleasure to visit a former school mate who used to boast he had built a mansion when I was abroad. The house had no running water, electricity or doors. The only door the house had was the front door, the rest were improvised with chitenge.

When i was tranfered to Chipata, i of course left my house on rent and went to live in a rented house. Others leave their houses to go and rent smaller and cheaper houses so that they can get profit from their much bigger houses. Suppose he publishes pics of his property and reasons why he is renting, what will people say?
