Dawson Kafwaya raises the fist, the PF party symbol after addressing a party meeting in Solwezi on Sunday
Dawson Kafwaya raises the fist, the PF party symbol after addressing a party meeting in Solwezi on Sunday

Solwezi UPND Member of Parliament, Dawson Kafwaya says he will re-contest his seat on the PF ticket in the August 11 polls.

Mr. Kafwaya says his decision has been motivated by President Edgar Lungu’s inclusive and quality leadership.

He told the media this morning that the people of North Western province are in support of President Lungu and the PF contrary to assertions that the party is unpopular.

Mr. Kafwaya who is also Local Government and Housing Deputy Minister said President Lungu is determined to develop the region despite NOT getting much support in the January 20, 2015 presidential election.

And Mufumbwe PF MP, Stephen Masumba said he will remain loyal to President Lungu and the PF.

Mr. Masumba said it is shocking that some desperate individuals in the UPND are peddling lies that he is planning to join the opposition party.

He said he is confident that President Lungu will win the August 11 election with support from all provinces including the North-Western region.

Mr. Masumba also implored some PF officials at grassroots level to welcome new members in order to strengthen the party.

  1. So what is going on, one MP crosses from PF to UPND in the morning and another does the same in the afternoon – from UPND to PF. I think guys we will just be fighting for nothing, politicians are the same. If it was about principles these idi0ts would not be doing this nonsense.

    • This will be a regrettable move by Kafwaya, he will not win Solwezi Central under PF, it is impossible!!

      Masumba just needs to shut up, I would have been pissed if this con-man joined UPND. Let him stay in PF with his fake academic qualifications….. Actually ECZ need to pay extra attention to his Grade 12 certificate, I doubt if it is genuine.

      Mufumbwe is going to UPND on 11.08.16…. No doubt about that.

    • That’s the nature of Zambian politics. It’s not driven by principles, but the belly. My guess is that the repositioning that’s going on is to increase the chance of adoption in the first instance.

      Survival of the fittest.

    • This is not rocket science. Dawson Kafwaya shot himself in the foot when he agreed to be appointed as a Deputy Minister against the UPND’s advice. As a result, he has no choice but to sleep in the bed of thorns he has made. I have been in Northwest Province. I can assure you that there will be NO PF seat in that Province! Copperbelt might be 50/50, but I think HH will end up with 60% of the votes. Things have changed on the ground! Munzi wapya!

    • True about politicians. our only consolation with UPND is that the new government and nation will be led by a very very disciplined man HH. All this nonsense of violence, corruption in corridors of power, laziness, etc will be a thing of the past. HH’s rule is an era for progress for mother Zambia. It is time to build and bring back civilised politics of ideas and not violence.

    • Kafwaya, masumba’s only hope is that EL will rig elections and then they can be cabinet ministers. They know very well that EL and PF are losing squarely but encourage their troubled souls that but EL can rig ka and then we can continue eating. No rigging this time. We will man all polling stations and watch ballot boxes with fixed eyes until all votes are counted and recorded. Timor Consulting is just chewing tax payers’ money for nothing.

    • Kafwaya is only a factor in his village. Even if it were a bye-election, Kafwaya would never win Solwezi Central.

  2. Way to go guys UPND think they own or are very popular in N/Western province when infact not. With the influx of miners from CBP and the recent voter registration and upgrading of voters cards coupled with the infrastrucure development going on there, I can safely say that kafwaya will carry the day.

    • Hehehehe. ‘influx of miners from CB’?
      That’s a fraction of the local population. Even if all those so called miners from CB currently in Solwezi were to vote for Kafwaya, he can’t win. In any case, majority of those employed by the mines are local people from the area. By the way, the so called influx is littered in two constituencies, Solwezi Central (Kansanshi mine) and Solwezi West (Lumwana and Kalumbila).

  5. Kafwaya has never been a UPND member ever since he was given a ministerial position like Monde and Siamunene. Are you going to say these guys have defected to PF when they open their mouths??? No use MP’s because they have been there for themselves not for the people. Remember Siamunene has no G12 certificate and there the day he opens his mouth is when he joins PF as an academic exercise.

  6. UPND WILL NEVER FORM GOVERNMENT. HERE IS THE REASON. UPND stands for United Party for National Development. THIS IS ALL WRONG. You cant be united with only one entity “Party”. Until the name is changed to “United Parties/People for National Development”, maybe they will stand a chance in 2026.
    Some well known examples are: USA = United States of America NOT United State of America, UN = United Nations and NOT United Nation, UK = United Kingdom, “Kingdom” is a collection many smaller kingdoms.
    So Kachema must know that his party is just a club and the only party in Zambia is PATRIOTIC FRONT whose mandate to be in Government is a minimum of 15 years!

    • Stop showing your ignorance with the limited English that you learned in some lousy basic school in Zambia. What is your explanation regarding UNIP– United National Independence Party? UPP — United Progressive Party?
      There is nothing patriotic about the so called Patriotic Front. Bemba Tribal Front is what the “PF” is.

  7. Hey, kafwaya was expelled from UPND a long time ago. Why should he claim that he has left the UPND now? His political carrel will end after 11 August . He was also suspend from the council six months. Only his father, uncle and cousins will vote for him. As you can see in the picture, he had to go to his village to show that he was difecting. He is surrounded by illiterate villagers. He kissed goodbye to politics a long time ago.

  8. Why UPND Will loose this coming Elections
    – They think being on social media from morning to 24hrs with multiple account by same individuals will buy them the votes. Wrong strategy. Why, the people on this platform have heard all your arguments and have already made up their mind of who they are going to vote.It like UPND Concentrating all the effort in Southern province.For what? People in Southern province have already made up their minds. Why should you campaign there? Your friends are physically in the villages and not on social media or radio stations.
    – Receiving majority of defectors from Bantu Botatwe grouping is very big mistake.
    Come august , UPND will be crying big time.

  10. I AM SURE UPND WILL MISS YOUR CONTRIBUTION HOWEVER IN THE SAME VAIN WE ALL WISH YOU WELL HON KAFWAYA. THIS IS HOW DEMOCRACY WORKS. THE ORANGE ALLIANCE IS IN WAITING AND FOR AS SURE AS THE SUN RISES IN THE MORNING THEY WILL ONE DAY FORM GOVERNMENT. CERTAINLY NOT THIS ELECTION FOR EVEN IF THEY WERE TO WIN THEY DO NOT HAVE THE STRUCTIRES IN PLACE TO FORM GOVERNMENT. BEST BELIEVE MILES IS ON THE MARCH AND WE ARE COMING. PF IS A SINKING SHIP. GOOD LUCK TO YOU HON KAFWAYA. AS MUCH AS WE DISAGREE WITH YOUR DECESION WE RESPECT YOUR RIGHT TO MAKE IT.

  12. Where is that Jerabo “Gerald” who fought knuckle for knuckle with Kafwaya over the adoption? I thought “Kaponya Gerald” was EL’s favourite after buying that lousy hat for thousands of kwachas? Or is it his relationship with Tasila that has propelled him to be closer to the first family? Anyway I just thinking out loud……

  13. When did Dawson kafwaya rejoin upnd? He has been a green toilet fly since he was appointed deputy minister, that can’t be an antidote to namulambe, mwaliteta, judge ngoma, walubita jr, sikazwe,and Kelvin pf councillor from petauke, let him remain a green toilet fly, since he thrives on boog. All roads, paths, airports, ports are leading to upnd, liletenta, ukutenta, nalitulika.

  14. Ba UPND know how to play with words. HH will get 60% when we are all voting like TONGAS. This year’s elections will not be about development but voting like TONGAS. Who doesn’t know HH’s plans of using other tribes and dump them. MUBEPELE FYE

  15. Comment:The 2015 was a revolt vote. Majority of zambians foresaw poverty under Pf, and this is exactly what is obtaining. With increasing high level of poverty and violence, many people will turn up to vote Pf out ,it won’t matter which part of the country one will be voting from.
