Statement by PF Member of Central Committee Paul Moonga on the so-called salary increment published in Today’s edition of the Post Newspapers

Lusaka, Zambia, Wednesday, March 23, 2016—Once again, we have been confronted by a screaming headline quoting Mr Hakainde Hichilema, the leader of the United Party for National Development, attempting to distort facts about the salary of the President of the Republic of Zambia.

We are irritated by Mr Hichilema’s unprecedented levels of ignorance exhibited in the said Post Newspaper to conveniently personalize the salary of the Head of State even when he knows that the salary is for the office holder. If he thinks that he will continue to mislead the people of Zambia while we watch, then he has a massive job on his hands. His statement has too many convenient omissions which must not be left unchecked lest they unjustifiably breed hate against the President.

We now know that the intention of Mr Hichilema is to cultivate a seed of hate, discord, dislike and discontent against the government of President Chagwa Lungu by germinating predictable lies for planting in the selected media which are known enemies of peace but this must be done with some level of coordinated thought.

First and foremost, we retain a duty to remind Mr Hichilema that the small percentage salary increment to the President’s salary is a very tiny proportion of the huge amount of money the UPND leader collected after presiding over a highly suspicious privatisation process of the mining companies in Zambia in the 1990s. Mr Hichilema recommended to the previous government to sell the mines at a song and collected huge sums of money for his personal use and walked away.

As a way of laundering his image, Mr Hichilema has now specialized in diverting that blatant diversion of resources by blaming former government officials of being responsible for the process without making effort to explain why this is so. We will not allow him to use those tricks anymore without being marked. I am challenging him to surrender all the money he collected from the privatization process before he can start opening his mouth to mislead the people of Zambia.

That single privatization process alone is responsible for the huge riches Mr Hichilema has amassed and is currently enjoying. We believe he does not have any trace of a moral right condemn a meager salary hike for the office of the President considering his lust for wealth. Mr Hichilema needs to know that the salary of the President accrues to the office and not to the person of Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu, who is the current President.

When late President Frederick Chiluba purchased a Presidential challenger plane, the opposition and their media distorted the information in a similar fashion without shame. After his death, the plane has been used by four different Heads of State and the same applies to the President’s salary.

The office of the President is very important to the country and the people of Zambia have a responsibility to look after it irrespective of the person occupying it.

Currently, Mr Hichilema does not have any moral right to blame the President over a salary which is even 1 per cent of M Hichilema’s questionable wealth. We are now left to wonder what type of a leader he will make should he assume presidency if honesty is not his portion.

I insist, as a PF member of central committee, that Mr Hichilema should invest a little more in using media space for productive things, if he can. If he thinks he will succeed in detracting President Lungu from running the affairs of this country through such lies, we want to assure Mr Hichilema that the President remains steadfast in governing the country.

Petty politics being employed by Mr Hichilema will not help the UPND ascend to power because they merely bring to the fore the level of dishonest on the part of their leader.

In my view, the next time he attempts to open his mouth to discuss this subject, Mr Hichilema must check his own surroundings and make sure that he is not shooting himself in the foot.

  1. What the f&&&^k that Moonga talking about? Why comparing Edgar to Chiluba?
    And why use “Moonga” as the new PF’s cabinet spokesman? These PF with tribal delusional…. these days just a name like Moonga, you get a job to avoid be beaten like Bwalya. He doesn’t even look PF but UPND.
    How much are PF paying for a Southerner name?

    • For once i thought he would say the so called salary increment is a fabrication of the Post and HH, but No. The man went on a rant about things totally unrelated to the issue at hand.
      has EL given himself a salary increment? Yes or No? If YES, is it justifiable?
      Not the sharpest tool in the shed.

    • Completely out of order! He has avoided the subject. He has not justified why the President needs a salary raise in the economic environment Zambia is in but has gone on to blurt about the president being poorer that the opposition leader. He says the Presidential challenger jet was for the benefit of presidents after Chiluba and so will be Edgar’s salary! That Grade 12 Certificate requirement makes more sense when you hear the warped reasoning from some of these politicians.

    • THERE ARE NO CONVINCING FACTS TO JUSTIFY CHAGWA LUNGU’S SALARY INCREMENT AT THIS VERY DARE MOMENT FOR ZAMBIA. THIS RESPONSE IS A MARE BASELESS AND RHETORIC RESPONSE FROM A ONE WHO HAS PERSOL HATE FOR HH. HH’S CONCERN OVER LUNGU’S SALARY INCREMENT IS A CONCERN FOR EVERY PROGRESSIVE ZAMBIAN, PROBABLY INCLUDING LUNGU’S DAUGHTER TAYALI LUNGU AS WELL.

    • Paul Moonga, jealousy will kill you. If had a similar Accounting/property evaluation firm that HH had at the time, and the Government of the day approached me to evaluate assets for sale, I would have done the same. HH evaluated the assets, MMD was responsible for selling at the recommended price, but they didnt.

      Besides, the new IMF bailout conditions that the PF government is supposed to immediately implement are exactly the same as the ones under MMD. Some state owned companies will have to be privatized. PF will need to approach a private company to evaluate loss-making companies for sale/Privatization. Then what are you going to say about that private company? No wonder PF is playing delaying tactics until after elections to implement IMF recommendations because they know that…

      ..because they know that they will no longer have any accusations on HH.. The company that will evaluate the assets will need to be paid by Government for their services. Same as what happened when MMD was selling the assets. Stop deceiving people. Come August, you are out and some of you will running away from your own shadows.

      “Flashback: IMF, World Bank pressured govt to privatize mines – Nawakwi
      By Chiwoyu Sinyangwe and Chibaula Silwamba
      Friday November 02, 2007”

      FORMER finance minister Edith Nawakwi has revealed that the IMF and the World Bank pressured the Zambian government to privatise the mines on the pretext that copper prices would not increase in 20 years.

      According to a report by Action for Southern Africa (ACTSA), Christian Aid, and Scotland’s Aid Agency entitled, “Undermining development, Copper mining in Zambia” dated October 2007, Nawakwi – who is Forum for Democracy and Development president – admitted that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the…

      ..and the World Bank told the Zambian government that copper prices would never increase, hence they should privatise the mines.

      “We were told by advisers, who included the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, that not in my life time would the price of copper change. They put production models on the table and told us that there (was) no copper in Nchanga Mine, Mufulira was supposed to have five years life left and all the production models that could be employed were showing that for the next 20 years, Zambian copper would not make a profit,

      ” the report quoted Nawakwi as having told its author in an interview on July 26, 2007.

      “Conversely, if we privatised we would be able to access debt relief, and this was a huge carrot in front of us – like…

      like waving medicine in front of a dying woman. We had no option (but to go ahead).”

      According to the report, Nawakwi stated that one of the arguments in favour of privatisation was that it would save the government money by relieving them from propping up an enterprise losing up to US $1 million a day. The report further revealed that in 1999, the donors withheld aid to Zambia until the government agreed to privatise the mines.

      “Privatisation of ZCCM (Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines) was a condition repeatedly attached to several loans from both these institutions (IMF and World Bank) and was a pre-condition for Zambia to qualify for debt relief through the Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative. In 1999, with the Zambian government still reluctant to…

      reluctant to privatise ZCCM, major donors withheld some US $530 million in aid until the government conceded,” the report revealed.

      “ZCCM’s assets were split into seven sections and sold to various investors, though the company was able to retain shares in some of the units – including in KCM (Konkola Copper Mine) – through the creation of a holding company called ZCCM-IH (Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Investment Holding).”

      According to the report, the negotiators argued that increased investment by the new mine owners would generate significant profits that would be channelled back to the Zambian government through taxation and dividends

      Okay, let me stop here for now.. Mr Moono, can you show me where either the reports or Nawakwi is blaming HH in this whole article? IMF, World bank and MMD were the ones responsible. HH’s company simply evaluated the assets. The MMD government sold the mines and other companies. Besides, HH was not even involved in the evaluation or selling of ZCCM!! There are tons of articles that you can research on and you will still find the same story.

      What do we call people like Mr Moono? Shameless LIAR!!.

      CLAIM: The mines were sold for a song.

      ANSWER: Most commentators tend to use hindsight to pass judgement on past events. How many times have we all made decisions based on the information available and unique circumstances at the time? Just because conditions change after the fact does not mean the decisions made earlier were wrong.

      For example, you may be forced to sell you car cheaply because you have no money and you need quick cash to pay for your child’s hospital bill. If later on your situation improves and you have money, does it mean the decision to sell the car cheaply at the time was wrong? If the person you sold the car to resells it later at a huge profit, would you start complaining that you sold him the car “for a song”?

      Copper prices were at their lowest in 1999 after 20 years of decline. The mines were sold in 2000. Based on 20 year data, it was very difficult to accurately forecast that there would be a commodity boom just a few years later when the price of copper went up significantly. The persistently declining price of copper meant the value of the mines when they were sold in 2000…

    • contd..
      sold in 2000 was low.

      The Zambian government was in a position of huge weakness partly because they had taken too long to sell off the mines. The treasury was bleeding to the tune of one million Dollars per day to keep the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) parastatal afloat at the worst point of the Zambian economy in 1999. The foreign mining companies that bought ZCCM most likely used this to push for a better deal for themselves.

      If the Zambian government had refused to sell, the private mining companies would have simply waited for things to get more bad and then make a worse offer. It appears this is what may have happened in 2000 after several earlier failed potential deals.

      0

      0
    • contd..
      An always overlooked point is that because the Zambian government was losing millions of Dollars per year to keep ZCCM afloat, even giving away the mines for free would have instantly saved them money to be channeled into other more important things. Does it make sense for any responsible government to hold onto huge loss-making parastatals and keep wasting tax-payer money on them while citizens are dying in hospital for lack of drugs?

      No government can justify wasting millions on a bottomless pit. The decision to sell off the mines was a perfectly rational one. We can argue all day about whether the selling price was “fair” (whatever that means) or how the proceeds were used (or misused), but this does not invalidate the rationale for selling.

    • The president is only lining up his pocket through a hefty gradient, hence adjusting his pay just before the calculation for his end of contract pay out. What a shame that his is increasing his salary at a time when most Zambians are going to bed on empty tummies, due to Open Market Operation (OMO) strategy to give the kwacha some face. OMO is the easy way out for a failing currency, ba PF.

Two things should be done: The salary increment is an entitlement of the office of the President, whether we end up with GBM or even muliokela, the conditions of service of the highest office in the land are not subject to the caliber of leader but the fact that they are the leader. The government should officially take HH to court for the corrupt acquisition of wealth they say he did so that he can come out clean and prove his innocence.

If HH store anything during the privitization process of the Mines, he would have been arrested already. HH is just a smart businessman who is better than most of you morons who depend upon stealing from government coffers. The nation treasury has ran empty because of your massive looting. Who doesn’ t know what’ s happening. Almost every worker this year has got no salary increment due to wage freeze and you want to justify Lungu’ s salary increment with your total ignorance. Shut up your rotten beak and HH is 100% right.

      Apart from that add the per diem in kwacha for local trips and dollars for foreign trips (remember he rarely stays in one place) that is loads of money.

    • I agree with you when you say Lungu has zero advisers (or advisor). You said he never took time to do a detailed analysis in so many of his decisions, my thinking is that he gives a lot of thought in what he does only that he comes up with warped decisions, maybe his past illnesses and too much imbibing of alcohol are limiting his thinking to a level of a school boy. He is like an auto mechanic who repairs your car and tells you he has finished and the car is ready to go, but when check on the floor, there are bolts and nuts remaining, would you trust that mechanic? Do not allow him to build your house either.

  33. HH had a business acumen even just after he left University. He used his early salaries to slowly pay for a plot of land in Kalingalinga and buy cows in Southern Province. In the next few years he found himself on the boards of various local and international companies (they had already recognized his potential and skills) He did not decide to privatize the mines. It was government. He worked for a company that produced the audits and was paid as an employee. The salary has been raised for Lungu not the office. If it was the office he could afford to wait, couldn’t he? It gives the impression he is ‘feeling’ for whoever occupies the position in future – which is a load of b.ull!

  35. Ba Moonga the topic is presidents salary not privatisation during Chiluba reign decades back. Mwanawasa, Rupiah, Sata now Lungu have not arrested HH over a program championed by Chiluba and your founding president Sata and others. Where do we find these characters my Zambia. There are no better humans out there.

  36. The Government should then also increase salaries for Nurses, Teachers, Police., Soldiers and all other civil servants, after all, its for the dignity of the office and not the individuals!!

  37. His naive supporters call him a prudent business man. I know him differently. He is a roguish thief living in a world of his own. He condemned Zambians and in particular Luanshya people to unbearable suffering while he laughed all the way to the bank. As it is in his nature to con Zambians, given the chance, this man will continue from where he left during privatization. He must not be allowed anywhere near State House.

  41. Your insults on Paul will not distract the progressive agenda of PF. Paul is a citizen of this country and a member of PF and has every right to comment on any national issue like HH tried to mislead the nation. All of you who have commented on Paul”s article will not make HH win, to tell you the truth, the closet HH tried to win was the last presidential by election when PF was very disorganized… this time it’s one Party one PF and one ECL….

  42. Paulu Moonga, Edgar Lungu is using you like a tissue of paper you are. What a shame. Because you are Tonga who claimed to come from the same village as HH whom you are jealousy of for his wealth which you don’t have, Edgar wants you to be his spokesman on HH. He wants people to see a Tonga member of central thieves attacking someone from his village.

    Plain truth is you are not an economist. You don’t know anything about privatising mines. In fact you are nothing. You are trying to elevate yourself to HH, which you can;t be. Moonga, koya ukeembele ngombe kumunzi yebo ochiyaanga!

  43. @hh, so where are you going to find the extra voters because your party has been bleeding profusely caused by massive exodus of members in recent times and same is still continuing. All these people left gaping holes in the boat when they left with their members: Kabimba, Sampa, Mwaliteta, etc.

  45. entitlement my foot. look at Magufuli he is also a president and yet he has alot in just a few months i.e. increased revenue and reduced corruption. ECL could have exhibited maturity by stating that for now he wont take a hike although he was entitled to it. that leadership not arrogantly saying he deserves it
