Political commentator Dante Saunders says he is not in politics for positions because if that was the case he would have gotten one under late president Michael Sata.

Speaking when featured on the Oxygen of Democracy a live TV program on Prime TV Mr Saunders said people accusing him of being a job seeker for associating with the UPND have misunderstood his motive because he is not looking for job but to better the Zambia society.

He said he did not get a job from PF because, unlike the current PF leaders, he did not advocate for change of government so that they can share positions and plunder the country’s resources.

He said he was number 4 in line of appointments, but that he did not accept any position because he wanted to see a better Zambia and that he wants to live in a corrupt free society which he said the PF turned their backs on immediately they got into office.

He said his support for UPND should not be viewed as way of looking for a job but that it should be seen as a contribution to the fight for an equal and just society adding that if the UPND changes once it gets in office he will be the first one to start championing for a a change of government.

He also bemoaned the lack of patriotism among young people in the country adding that young people should not wait for old people to fight for their rights.

    • @4 I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU LIVE IN THE USA BUT YOU STILL DON’T KNOW THAT THERE’S NO SUCH A THING/WORD LIKE “excee”. I HAVE HEARD MOST ZAMBIANS SAY THE SAME WORD ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO WERE EXPOSED TO TV OR VISITED AMERICA AND WITHOUT REALLY UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE OWNERS OF THE WORD ARE SAYING. THEY THOUGHT THEY HEARD THEM SAY, EXCEE. THIS WORD PHRASE IS NOT IN THE UK ENGLISH. IT’S PURELY AMERICAN AND IT’S NOT “EXCEE”, BUT, ‘SAY’.

  2. Dante sondashi don’t wait to see Upnd change once they form govt for you to live because HH is already in alliance Mmembe and cartel which hijacks govts to turn them away from their original ideologies.
    The pf which was hijacked is now free of these plunderers and they have since regrouped in Upnd where you are. If you want to contribute to the betterment of Zambia just leave that group now otherwise you will rot waiting for dream govt which will never come.

  3. IN THAT CASE MR SAUNDERS (OR IS IT SONDASHI?), CONCLUSIVELY, YOU ARE SAYING YOU ARE NOT A PRINCIPLED MAN. BECAUSE YOU ARE IN A PARTY WHICH REGIONAL AND TRIBAL. THAT PARTY IN WHICH YOU ARE- YOU DON’T EVEN NEED TO WAIT FOR IT TO BE IN GOVERNMENT. IT IS ALREADY A PARTY OF CROOKS AND VERY VIOLENT MEMBERS. THE WORST PART OF THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA IS THAT THEY WANT TO EAT WITH BOTH HANDS- IMPLEMENT NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT INFRASTRUCTURE WHILE AT THE SAME TIME THEY PARTY. IT CAN’T HAPPEN LIKE THAT BA SAUNDERS. FIRST YOU DEVELOP INFRASTRUCTURE WITH NO PARTYING BUT SACRIFICING. WITH GOOD ROADS etc YOU CAN ENJOY PARTIES EVERYDAY. BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR FARM PRODUCE TO MARKETS WITH EASY AND IN GOOD TIME.

  4. THE ECONOMY OF ZAMBIA IS BEHAVING IN THE MANNER ANY COUNTRY’S ECONOMY WOULD WHEN IT IS DEVELOPING INFRASTRUCTURES [(roads and rail networks, schools (primary, secondary, colleges and universities), hospitals, air transport, power and energy]. THIS IS BECAUSE A LOT OF MONEY (MOST OF IT BORROWED), IS PUMPED INTO THOSE PROJECTS. EVEN IF IT WERE UPND IN OFFICE THEY WOULD HAVE FIRST OF ALL DEVELOPED THE COUNTRY’S INFRASTRUCTURE BEFORE SUPER-STRUCTURES AND THE COUNTRY WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN PARTYING. ”UWAUMA NAFYALA OMINA LIMO”. LET’S SUFFER BUT FIRST DEVELOP THE COUNTRY’S INFRASTRUCTURE. AND THOSE WHO STILL WANT TO PARTY, LET THEM GO AND WAIT IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES WHERE THE PARTIES ALREADY STARTED AFTER THEY SACRIFICED.

  7. The youths especially yours(UPND) are very useless, all they know is insulting on social media and violence.They want HH to come and do every thing for them, they are lazy and just want hand outs from fat albert and some violent techniques from William Banda. As for you we know you are very broke thats why you are busy trying to be very near to HH so that he can squeeze you some little cash.

  8. What Dante Saunders is saying is true but the number of ’empty heads’ in Zambia will NOT understand such people. The UPND stands a good chance because they have some good and principled men and women who are NOT in PF. We knew it but because Rupiah was too excited like a teenager having sex for the first time, Sata usurped power from him. Otherwise, these corrupt thieves who have now teamed up with more thieves from the MMD don’t deserve a chance to govern. They cannot mange a University, a Hospital or even their own toilets. How can you have a clear fool like Chishimba Kambwili as government spokesperson? Why was he removed from Foreign Affairs by Sata after Diplomats complained? Surely, anyone knows education builds society and illiterate society cannot manage an economy…

  9. PF is a bunch of failures who are not capable of anything except stealing and telling lies. Vote them out and bring in a team of men and women of integrity and who will have love for the future of Zambia. The economy cannot be managed competitively by the ’empty heads’ in PF. Look at them ‘ Chishimba Kambwili – empty head, Davoes Chama – empty head, Mumbi skirt – Empty head, what do you really expect from these empty heads? They will vreate more empty heads among your children. Wake up if you are not an empty head and vote wisely – your vote should go to the team of people who can manage the economy instead of lying about God and drought when they steal money. Vote UPND and set yourselves free from empty heads!

    • UPND claim to be intellectuals but the agony is I can not see a doctor or prof among thier MPs so where is the the intelligence they are talking about? Is GBM educated? is William Banda educated? Ba @ the intelligentia dont overrate yourself you will need some of these pipo you are insulting today if at you form gvt in 2026 because they have expirience in how govt is run than your under 5. PF has got MPs in all the 10 provinces while UPND has MPs in 03 provinces ie, SP, WP, NWP plus a few in CP and CBP rural.So how can they win a national election! Be realistic ba UP n Down.
