Patriotic Front (PF) Chairman for media and Deputy Spokesman Frank Bwalya has said that United Party for National Development (UPND) Vice President Dr Canisius Banda should not drag the ruling PF into his known problem of failing to pay rentals for his dwelling.

In a statement released to the media, Mr Bwalya said that the predicament  Dr Banda is in now  is a result of the failure of UPND and its rich leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema to support their Vice President, who works for the party on a full time basis.

Mr Bwalya further said that Dr Banda decided to stay in UPND, while sending an SOS message, because he knows that the party has capacity to pay him a decent allowance for his survival.

Below is the full statement

PATRIOTIC FRONT
PRESS STATEMENT
APRIL 2, 2016.

Dr Canisius Banda’s Predicament is an indictment on the leadership of Mr Hakainde Hichilema.

The attempt by Dr Canisius Banda to drag the Patriotic Front (PF) into his known problem of failing to pay rentals for his dwelling should be understood as a veiled message to his party the United Party for National Development (UPND) to take care of him.

It is an open secret that since Dr Banda joined UPND for which he is Vice President for Politics he has been struggling financially. We have seen him driving a vehicle with the kind of finished types commonly known as insoka (snake).

The story of his failure to settle rentals is historical and has nothing to do with persecution by the landlady. As such, we don’t believe assertions that some people working with the landlady could be undertaking a plan of persecuting Dr Banda.

The truth of the matter is that the predicament of Dr Banda speaks volumes about the failure of UPND and its rich leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema to support their Vice President who works for the party on a full time basis. Therefore when Dr Banda says that PF has offered him charity and better treatment including financial support he is actually sending a message to his rich leader and brother Mr Hichilema to take care of him.

We believe that Dr Banda has decided to stay in UPND and just send an SOS message to the UPND leader because he knows that the party has capacity to pay him a decent allowance for his survival. Moreover, Br Banda knows what we all know namely that Mr Hichilema is a very rich Zambian businessman and has capacity to support him.

Therefore, the predicament of Dr Banda is an indictment on the leadership of Mr Hichilema. It is appropriate to wonder why a rich man can fail to help his right hand man who has become financially vulnerable for siding with the poor under the banner of the UPND.

We are aware of the suffering of some UPND members who are very close to their rich leader Mr Hichilema. When they fall sick they complain that Mr Hichilema gets journalists at great expense to go and pose for photos with them lying in pain in the hospital bed in University Teaching Hospital (UTH) and leaving them without any meaningful support.

It is this same attitude of Mr Hichilema that has made him refuse to make a personal social responsibility contribution to improve the primary school he went to in his village. The bottom line is that rich people are morally obliged to perform acts of philanthropy not only to their friends and relatives around them but society at large.

Finally, we urge Mr Hichilema to realise that the lamentations of Dr Banda are directed at him and that he should do something about it. The following is part of the lamentation as quoted by the Post Newspapers.

(Post Newspapers No. 7106 SA746-April 2, 2016 page 4)

I am being prosecuted, that is all. I am being
mocked and ridiculed. The only crime I have committed
is to side with the poor people of Zambia. That is all,
and I leave this matter in the hands of God.
I will find peace in the bosom of my Father.

We know that once President Lungu learns about the predicament of Dr Banda he will assist him from a purely humanitarian perspective should he be willing.

In conclusion what we can say is that Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu has small money but a big heart so he helps those around him whereas Mr Hakainde Hichilema has big money but a small heart so those around him suffer.

A portion of the money Mr Hichilema used to spoil diplomats with choice wines, expensive whiskies and sumptuous food could have gone to Dr Banda’s landlady to allow Dr Banda get back his belongings into the house he was evicted from.

Even a portion of the money that was used to host anti-Lungu clergy such as Bishop John Maambo could have gone a long way to alleviate the suffering of our brother Dr Canisius Banda.

    • Dr Canisius Banda needs help as soon as possible. However, he can not get this help from both HH and GBM but from Mighty Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lord`s. Put your confidence in God not in a human being no matter how rich or poor he or she is.

    • HH likes using people around him for his own personal gains. It’s a nature of Masons, they only help their fellow Masons. Honestly how can HH fail to help his right hand man indeed. Now can you imaging UPND winning the August elections with a broke VP in the name of C. Banda – it will be looting of GRZ coffers at its highest

    • Frank can choose to mock Dr Canisius Banda today but surely remember the wheel of life goes round. Pray it doesn’t find you on the wrong side.
      If a medical doctor of many years work in GRZ who chose to be honest can end up that way, how about the may civil servants who don’t have the media to bring to light their plight? This isn’t an indictment on HH but on a system that fails its hard working sons & daughters but rewards thieves & charlatans of all sorts.

    • Herein lies the problem…how many people work full-time for either UPND or PF are on payroll. To expect HH to give handouts to senior party officials is absurd. How many people in PF cannot afford basics and has Edgar gone to give them handouts? This alms mentality will not help

    • He thinks an opposition party is like being in govt where you are corruptly paying yourselves through contacts…ask MMD and UNIP!!

    • If HH cannot look after Dr Banda, his close ally how does one expect him to care for a common Zambian? Just asking!

    • Dr Banda, who is facing eviction from his rented PHI house, said he has refused to betray the UPND for “material things”. “The PF have offered me the world, but I have said no. I will not betray my people over a car and a house. These are temptations. They are saying ‘here is a little something, stop what you are doing’. The PF have been coming to me offering this and that but I am moving forward. I am vice-president for politics in the UPND. My status is not going to change. I will not be tempted to betray our citizens over thirty pieces of silver.

    • IF HH CAN’T LOOK AFTER HIS LIEUTENANT, HOW DO PEOPLE EXPECT HIM TO LOOK AFTER THE NATION? THESE ARE STRONG AND PRECISE SIGNS OF WICKED SOME PEOPLE EVEN THINK OF PUTTING INTO STATE HOUSE. THERE’S NO WAY UNDER WHATSOEVER, HH WOULD HAVE THE SLIGHTEST INTEREST OF SERVING A COMMON MAN IF HE WERE LET INTO STATE HOUSE. HH’s “DIRTY-HURRY” TO STATE HOUSE No.1 IS TO GO AND GAIN ABSOLUTE POWER TO SHUT UP PEOPLE WHO QUESTION HIS WEALTH BY MEANS OF DICTATORSHIP AND No.2 IS TO GO AND AMASS MORE DUBIOUS WEALTH AS HE ADMIRES DANGOTE BEING LISTED AS A BILLIONAIRE AND THE RICHEST MAN IN AFRICA. THESE ARE NO JOKES. BE CAREFUL, ZAMBIANS.

    • …AND THE FINAL REASON FOR HH’s “DIRTY-HURRY”, IS TO PAY BACK IS CREDITORS WHOM HE HAS PROMISED TO SELL MORE COMPANIES IN ZAMBIA WHO UNTIL THIS TIME HAVE BEEN BLINDLY BANKROLLING HIS POLITICAL PARTY ORGANISATION INCLUDING CAMPAIGNS WHOSE PAY BACK TIME IS NOW LONG OVERDUE. JUST, WATCH THIS SPACE AND MARK MY WORDS. THIS GUY HH WILL COLLAPSE AFTER LOSING HIS FIFTH ELECTION BID. ASK YOURSELVES- WHY SHOULD ANYONE IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND INVITE (AND I MEAN, INVITE), DIPLOMATS TO HIS HOUSE JUST TO PARADE THEM FOR PHOTO SHOTS. THERE’S A FAMILIARITY MISCONDUCT HH IS TRY TO EXPLOIT IN ORDER TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION TO THE LENDERS THAT EVEN THE DIPLOMATS TRUST HIM. WHY NOT INVITE POOR ZAMBIANS WHO EVEN HAVE A VOTER’S CARDS?

    • @1.4 itizi turu. THAT IS NOT A MOCKERY AND Dr CANICIUS BANDA’S MISFORTUNE IS UTTER STUP!D!TY. PUT IT THIS WAY BRO, IF A MEDICAL DOCTOR CAN’T MAKE IT WITH BASICS OF BASICS THEN THERE WILL BE VERY UNNECESSARY ‘SOCIAL CASH TRANSFER’ TO PEOPLE BY THE GOVERNMENT. AND IF AN EDUCATED MAN LIKE BANDA CAN’T BE DECISIVE TO LEAVE WHEN SOMETHING (UPND) IS NOT WORKING FOR HIM, WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO POSSESS THE INTELLECT OF DECISION-MAKING? IT’S ONLY A F00L THAT HANGS ON TO THE PLANS WHICH IS NOT WORKING. PLANS DON’T MAKE HUMAN BEINGS. HUMAN BEINGS MAKE PLANS. AND THOS PLANS CAN ADJUSTED OR EVEN ABANDONED, ALTOGETHER.

    • CORRECTIONS:
      @1.4 itizi turu. IT’S ONLY A F00L THAT HANGS ON TO THE PLAN THAT IS NOT WORKING. PLANS DON’T MAKE HUMAN BEINGS. HUMAN BEINGS MAKE PLANS. AND ‘THOSE’ PLANS CAN ‘BE’ ADJUSTED OR EVEN ABANDONED, ALTOGETHER IF THEY ARE NOT WORKING.

    • Well folks for those of you who do not have the acmen to read in between the lines,let me furnish you with some details you do not know who is behind this DR Banda ‘s saga.

      Banda has been a tenant for this lady for 10 years, and in those years, there was no such pettiness from the landlord like we are witnessing today.

      The facts are PF is spending money to destablise the UPND by picking those who it thinks can defect from UPND upon dungling money to them. They tried this trick with help of RB but Banda turned it down. Its at that moment when Lungu and his stooges started schemming to shame Banda by threatening his landlord to increase rental astromically to make it difficult for Banda to pay so that later on she could evict him if refuses to defect to PF.

      Folks questions have to…

    • Folks questions have to be asked; where is PF getting the money to bribe Banda instead of paying students their allowances, and Railway workers their wages, and CB University workers their salaries.

      Besides If PF has too much money at their disposal, why cant Lungu use it to import loads of Maize to normalise the mealimeal hall of shame.

      These are the facts on the ground. RB and Lungu have teamed up to pull anyone from the East out of UPND because UPND is seriously posing a huge to PF ‘s electoral victory in the East.

      More to come keep your eyes on the screen.

      VOTE WISELY VOTE UPND and HH TEAM.

    • The rich do not owe the poor a living! HH should watch out against parasites like CB! He is an embarrassment to the medical fraternity. What has he been doing all this time since graduating from medical school?

  1. Fr Bwalya, if indeed you wrote this then it could be a huge discouragement to the people you tried to convert to Christianity for do many years. So why should the flock avoid character assassination if the Shepard is doing it?

    • He did.

      I am not anti PF neither am I Pro UPND. This my opinion as a private citizen.

      This is the zenith of idiocy:
      1. If indeed Dr. Banda works full time at UPND, one would have expected him to have had the foresight to negotiate with the party a nice pay for his work, right? If he did not, it is not the fault of the party.
      2. If HH were to bail out every financially strapped person he met, he would be broke before the end of the month, taking into account the fact that approximately 64% of Zambians live in absolute poverty.
      3. Dr. Banda had been at the help of medical profession in Zambia for some time. Why has he refused to build himself a house? Even I who runs a block making kantemba, do not get nearly as much as he did/does as doctor, saved up enough to buy me a two…

  2. Dear Father Frank Bwalya,
    TRUTH ABOUT DECEPTION
    “Simply put, for a compulsive liar, lying becomes second nature.
    Not only do compulsive liars bend the truth about issues large and small, they take comfort in it. Lying feels right to a compulsive liar. Telling the truth, on the other hand, is difficult and uncomfortable.
    And like any behaviour which provides comfort and an escape from discomfort (i.e., alcohol, drugs), lying can become addictive and hard to stop. For the compulsive liar, lying feels safe and this fuels the desire to lie even more”.

  3. Father Mr banda is not an issue.The issues here. are inflation at 22% ,mealie meal at k150, interest rate at 40%,

    • To recap what I read; PF campaign strategy is among others,

      A. Portray HH as one who got rich solely from privatisation and in the wake caused millions to suffer

      B. Depict HH as greedy and uncaring whilst propping up Lungu as a religious and philanthropic humble man

      C..Rally that HH is not a Christian but a freemason

      D. Sow fear in people that HH is stone hearted unlike caring Lungu.

      E. Pretend.that the unprecedented borrowings induced economic meltdown is global.

  4. Father Dr banda is not an issue.The issues here. are inflation at 22% ,mealie meal at k150, interest rate at 40%,

    • naimwe what inflation for someone who is a MD (Medical Doctor) Chimpwena fye. This man could have continued with politics while in earning a living from his practice. But he abandoned his work and family for handouts. Who said politics is a full time job? If a guard with little education can survive the so called inflation – what about someone with these qualifications?

  5. It’s hardly a week since the 18 political parties met to end violence and one Frank Bwalya is already mocking the UPND Vice President! Just What type of a spermatozoa produced this chap kanshi? The dust from the Indaba has not yet settled and he is there starting another thing which may not be taken by the UPND with arms folded! President Lungu, tame your rabid ex-communicated one Frank Bwalya. If this country goes to war, it will be Frank Bwalya to start it. He is very dangerous human being, even more dangerous than the ISIS! TAME HIM PRESIDENT LUNGU.

    • Iwe Mumbwe, why should this country go to war over the suffering of Kamwenfu the dirty reprobate

  6. Sad event for Dr Banda. He will become rich if miraculously his Party wins election. Meanwhile this event is humiliating and foolish of his Party to allow it happen. Please PF assist Dr…to promote multiparty democracy so that he worries No more. Shame!

  7. Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk at ama tyres look like insoka awe mambala alimunsala. Just preparing myself to go for a beer in my 2014 Mercedes S63 AMG Couple.

    • you dont even own a bicycle iwe. Ati mercedes benz. Are pata patas now called Mercedes S63 AMG Couple?

    • Ba homo, How can you own a car for which you can’t even spell the name? Its Coupe NOT Couple, does it say that on your registration papers kikiki indeed you own couple of flip flops from China not even bata written S63 AMG couple pats pata

    • You think am a Namazai like you. Baba continue lamenting whilst others continue with their wealth creation

  8. Look at these PF leaders, they want flashy cars and rentals paid for them while people ate suffering.
    ECL is a very dull person, his judgment is lamentable to make this FB person spokes person for PF.

    What if you were told rentals are factored into your pay, as most prudent organisations do???.

    That is why Zambia is in the state it is in where nothing works. You have leaders laughing at what car others are driving.

    God help Zambia, if these PF are not evicted in August, that is the end of Zambia as we once knew it.

    • PF will not be evicted coz am one of those including my wife who are voting for them. So let that stick into your pea head Namazai iwe

  9. I seriously doubt Father Bwalya’s sanity. The man is mad. If Christianity is anything to go by, this father’s language and behavior leaves much to be desired. Christians are the most vindictive, judgmental and spiteful people, yet they are easily manipulated and brainwashed. Its a shame.
    Watch them vote for EL for the simple fact that he once declared a national day of prayer to rescue the economy.

  10. I like Dr Banda ,he likes saying( Ise ba upnd sukulu nimahala ) He want upnd manifesto to work even to the landload. Kikikiki.
    Big Help!Help!
    Anyway Changwa can do something ,everything is ni Lungu.

  11. …I thot this was about Dr Banda and what he allegedly lamented….but the press briefing is all about HH…someone somewhere is definitely having sleepless night over this name…flashes of the name HH keep on disturbing their sleep….I suggest that people like FB must be temporarily stopped from driving because they are a danger…his concentration on the road is compromised because of the flashes he regularly get when the name HH is mention on his car radio….the topic of the moment is POLITICAL VIOLENCE….that’s what we are expecting to hear from people like FB….not such crap

  12. Frank Bwalya, how can you politicise the private life of someone in opposition? What do you really know about the goings on of Banda s life? Cheap underground unethical politics. He Banda is an adult that has reasons for not paying his house rents and does not need you to publiscise his private life. Get civilised soon you will be a beggar on the street.

  13. Inflation at 22% meal meal and fuel shortages, cholera sowing havoc, shortages of water and non stop load shedding, job loses daily and you have PF leaders laughing at what cars their friends are driving, so what if banda even used a bicycle???

    Zambians, is this leadership???.

  14. These are fake, proud elitist opposition leaders. If they can’t manage their private affairs like rentals, how can they run our robust economy? Bwalya Is right. These Shylocks are pure charlatans and this embarrassment will kill them. They are not prepared to rule.

    • Robust economy???? Maybe to you PF looters who get every thing for free while the rest of the population wallous in hunger and poverty.

    • @Mr Kudos:
      You are after all brain dead! Dr Banda is a descent and honourable man even if he has no money. Compare him to your PF President, a convicted THIEF who stole a client’s money and you see who is upright!!

  15. The story was a lie just fools day stunt I believe frank Bwalya is one of those fools who were fooled …..cipuba fye Frank

  16. chaona munzako chapita, mailo chili pali iwe! Banda is evicted today but in August it will be Epileptic Clueless Leader, (ECL) so lawalya don’t mock the learnered. Hope you have the basic matrix, ka G12 certificate. X-fr you sound like you were brought up in group 3.

  17. Fatherless Frank Bwalya, be rest assured that you will be investigated to the last atomic particle of your assets after 11/8. Your neither have a child on earth nor in heaven and all your acquisitions to-date will be forfeited and donated to Kasisi Orphanage while you languish in jail. How much tax have you paid to-date to be a responsible citizen?.

  18. Countrymen and women please let us donate generously to pay for at least 24 months rentals for this statesman. Condemning any one either Fr. Frank Bwalya or HH or President Lungu does not help Dr. Banda. If not let us hold a funding raising braii to bail out our dear statesman. Its not his making but the world’s making.

    • @20. I MUST BE A F00L TO DONATE TO CANICIUS BANDA’S RENTALS. THERE ARE POOR CHILDREN WITH SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS NEEDING OUTSIDE MEDICAL EXPERTISE WHO DO NOT GET ANY DONATIONS. MR BANDA IS AN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEMBER- MEANING HE IS THE EXECUTIVE MEMBER. HE GETS A SALARY OR ALLOWANCE. WHY SHOULD I DONATE TO HIM? THIS IS AN INSIDE JOB OF UPND. THEY ARE SCREENING PEOPLE IN ORDER TO REMAIN WITH A DESIRED RUNNING MATE. BANDA (AND GBM) SHOULD KNOW THIS. IF BANDA DOESN’T KNOW, THIS SHOULD BE ANOTHER SOURCE OF CONCERN ABOUT IS MENTAL AND INTELLECTUAL CAPABILITY.

  19. Fr. Bwalya, obviously you have failed to answer point-for-point, and therefore opted to TRY AND DEFLECT READERS’ ATTENTION from the pertinent issue of selective justice Dr. C. Banda ably highlighted in his statement to Vice President Inonge Wina. Womanhood and motherhood was disgraced by PF cadres on Youth Day when they attacked and stripped a young woman whose only crime was to exercise her freedom to choose to wear UPND regalia. She was disgraced in full view of the Police and not far from where Wina was. Up to now nothing has been done.
    As an ordained Priest, what sort of morals do you hold to choose deception over truth and reconciliation?

  20. I am sure the guy is being paid but has a habit of not wanting to fulfill his obligations. The landlady confirmed that he has occupied her property for 9 years (long before he occupied the position he now occupies) and paying the rent was always a problem. Why do Zambians have such short memories? That is ripe ground for being taken for a ride by all politicians. Muli ndwiiiii! Urgh!

    • We know CB from school days. He is a financial reck who cannot manage his finances. He is equally a terrible opportunist. I wonder what value he has brought to UPND. Wake up HH! You have another Kapita in your inner circle.

  21. The same forces that fought FTJ, RB and now fighting ECL are the same forces lampooning Dr Banda. Every President backed by the cartel dies while in office and going by that predictive modelling gives the cartel headache because the next in line after their preferred candidate is gone, Dr Banda – an easterner will take over. I’m surprised that Dr Banda can’t see that this is the work of cartel working in tandem with HH to discredit and humiliate him into a resignation. Remember this election is about tribalism, retribution and persecution of Bembas / Easterners. If you are a voter from Eastern, Lusaka, Copper belt and Northern Provinces, don’t waste your vote on the cartel.

  22. …..We have seen him driving a vehicle with the kind of finished types commonly known as insoka….lol but kwena…

  23. Comment:Frank bwalya is garulous he has bcm an expert on any topic.
    since when did the issue of Dr Canisuis banda bcm a national issue?

  24. This is a medical Doctor mwe bantu, with a valid practicing licence. He has been used and probably now dumped by H.H. He should just do the honorable thing by going back to his noble profession. Zambia has a huge shortage of Medical Doctors or is he sending a hidden message to H.H.

  25. Frank Bwalya can’t be talking about somebody’s welfare.Frank Bwalya is overzealous and not schooled. Does he have a grade 12 certificate? This atom is surely a waste of space. The guy has no respect, remember him insulting Michael Sata

    • Iwe Mutale Sambo, Dr. Banda`s rental problems have been in papers at least for last few months. So this has been an open secret.

  26. l mean HH must first sort out the hunger in his own club before he promises the world to the Zambians. We can’t afford a glutonous and selfish leader at the helm of zambia.

  27. Who says when you are a party spokesperson you comment on every thing. Even if this thing has been in the public domain, it it something that a party spokesperson must be busy with. This Frank Bwalya must be pretending to be reorganizing his party

  28. Well we can argue as much as we want but the truth is Canicius Banda is irresponsible to find himself and his family in such a situation. Having served for many years in Govt with such qualifications, we can only conclude that he did not do his homework well. You do not have to steal to secure a safe and confortable future. Therefore, he must blame himself for his predicament and not drag other people in it period!

  29. Dr. Banda for sure needs help. He should first help himself. H.H cannot help every individual no matter how rich he may be. No one has the money in Zambia. The govt system to abolish poverty must be in place. Dr. Band occupy a house you can afford to pay or above all build your own house. How are you utilising your profession. H.H is a politician, businessman and family man. He mixes freely. Dr. Banda for sure you disappoint me may be there is something I do not understand about your situation..
    Anyway God help us

  30. What a shame to DOCTORS i thot this chap had a house but just wanting to stay in a upnd paid house.
    Its a very big shame where even cdes have built there own houses.
    Anywhere,this as reviewed a lot about banda himself and about upnd management.
    *Zambians be very careful the way you choose these leaders.
    This tell you who HH is
    -he would rather give a foreigner than a zambian
    -he left more than seven chiefs very sick in southern province without care when these have been supporting him masively instead he opted to feed those diplomats sad
    -is this normal or satanic?
    *now i know why hh has been going round without banda.
    Banda just leave that party pf can give you job.
    *banda where you treating wife ok if not you are in for it more to come your way

  31. HH doesn’t even pay his farm workers on time. Sometimes takes five months to pay them in installments.

  32. This article simply shows you that we got alot stuupids in pf, he is even proud to say tyres commonly called as insoka, question i ask is why has your pf police allowed him to drive a vehicle in such a state, it means law enforcement agencies are only good at enforcing public order act.

  33. Have never heard of HH”S workers being laid off enmass the way pf has done to many. . HH had to bailout the post workers to prevent layoffs .. Dr Banda’s now has a more decent accommodation than a house of a pf cadre he had occupied before eviction

  34. This man most likely is being blackmailled by hh other wise he should have left this party a long time ago but something has been holding him.
    Ati inganda ushikalamo bakumbwa umutenge hh always boost of money and yet he cant use his money to only k5000 for his right handman.
    Now the truth is out that u are just a group of conmen not weath to be leaders.
    Who is going to be hh ‘s runningmate cb,gbm,molin,kaseba,nalumangu, wait and see the next drama from tipple h.

  35. Politics aside, from a humanitarian point of view, it is sad anyone would try to drive a wedge at this particular point between Dr Banda and the party he has worked so hard for. To make him lose out now is like detracting one of the main hunters on a trail of a wounded animal some 50 m from where its carcasse is lying.

  36. Dr. Kaseba was evicted for failure to pay rent. This is the former first lady and your government failed to pay her rent.

    • Chagwa with a big heart and the entire holier than thou humble pf failed to pay rent for former first lady Christine kaseba, pwa pwa pwa pwa, ba Zambia you have made my day, frank forgot about this before issuing this statement.

  37. If father Bwalya has seen him then the police must have also seen him. Why hasn’t he been arrested?
     We have seen him driving a vehicle with the kind of finished tyres commonly known as insoka (snake).

    • Stella libongani, that’s why i said them pfools are stuupid, in short frank is saying incompetence is pf’s middle name, why would a government agency allow someone to risk his life and other road users lives in such a manner, and a senior ruling party official like frank is aware on ama tayela kwati ni nsoka.

  38. Please leave Dr Banda alone, I know him personally from our DK days in the same domitary. He has always been a humble, simple and sinsible man. The aim of a perambulator is to take you from point A to B with ease no matter what type and condition it’s in. PF in their paranoer are bringing personal issues to the fore which bear no truth at all. The voters will decide come August. Wina izalila.
    As for Frank Bwalya; the is a saying that if you leave in a glass house don’t throw stones at people outside!

  39. @mukupa, we all live under the same economic conditions but we still pay our rents. Even you, have you failed to pay rent? Why should inflation choose Dr Banda only and not you and me?

  40. Ba Father Bwalya please do not mock your perceived enemies because God does not allow that…Just remember what you were preaching a few years ago that we should love our enemies and pray for them…We should not celebrate when our friends are in difficulties like what the ‘Doc’ is going thru’ regardless of our political affiliation because as Christians we’re called upon to sympathise with those suffering. Therefore, on this one Ba Father Bwalya you are off the tangent and the PF Secretary General Mr Davis Chama must censure you strongly not to be issuing statements which are at variance with our Christian values. I urge you to repent and start offering issue based statements…

  41. The posting above indicate the complete lack servitude in Zambia. If you join a party, it’s for what you get and not to serve. Please, don’t expect handouts as development, and Zambians do not need handouts. They need management of the resources and not someone’s personal assets. No wonder the crazy father goes where the nshima is found and not to serve people. People wake up, he has told why he supports Lungu.., he’s paid!!! And if Dr. Banda is suffering when he could make tons of money giving people ARVs, but chooses to work against the ills of handouts and stealing.., his input will one day pay off! He is not in for money and that’s noble than claim man of God when you’re hiding in sheep skin. Such posts are only news in Zambia why few can reason, and many practice belly politics…

  42. This is what is wrong about Zambia politics. Public service like politics isn’t about making yourself rich and wealth. Reading this, this guy believes that when you join politics, you should be “helped” by the leadership to buy you expensive cars and live a lavish lifestyle. This is why the end up plundering public resources and become rich within a short period of time. I can’t believe this a statement issued by spokesperson for the party in government. He’s confirming that Lungu ‘helps’ his PF stewards by allowing them to ‘steal’ public money.

    Dr Banda works for UPND and not it’s president Hichilema. So it’s wrong to expect HH to ‘help’ Dr Banda. Besides Dr Banda has decided to provide public service and his personal wealth (or lack of it) should be separated from his…

  43. Some comments expose how shallow some people can be and for one Frank Bwalya to try and make political capital out of a private matter is indicative of how mediocre Zambians tend to be. I pity Dr Banda that his private matter can be brought into this lime light by people whose main idea is to mock him! Conclusions are being drawn left right and center yet Dr Banda is an adult whom nobody the press included if barging into peoples private affairs is relishing has cared to get his side of the story as well as know who the landlord is but everyone is quick on the draw as “know-it-alls” going to the extent of involving people who have nothing to do with landlord and tenant issues! Please leave UPND and its leadership out of this Dr Banda has been a tenant in the same house for years and I…

  44. contd….. believe its something beyond rentals and we won’t get to know it!

    By the way if Frank Bwalya is suggesting one has to be paid enough to afford rent, then why not his government pay civil servants enough so that they too can easily afford rent? Civil servants are even a different category who should not demand it but automatically get it commensurate with inflation for they are not volunteers in public service!

  45. Sometimes u wonder how UPND tribal cadres support.They defend anything HH does.Awe mwadi these tribal cadres can kill if u mention the name of HH. These chaps are desperate to rule.It”s common for leader to help his friend.why should a leader let his vice evicted from the house?And tribal cadres supporting HH coz he belongs to tongaland?No way pipo should think n conderm their HH messaiah in their tribal thinking.This UPND party can divide Zambia if given power.Many pipo will lose jobs bcoz these chaps are too selfish and selfish centred.If u have never worked with these chaps then u’re warned.Some even insult we are jst using GMB to get bemba votes.U think pipo can be cheated like that?HH knows why he wants to go state house.His aim is to fulfil want most tongas want.Pipo will not be…

    • kikikikikikikiki….hahahahahah. Dr Banda is a disgrace to the professional of DR’s. How can you explain the caliber of Dr Banda to be renting a house? and he was not a mere Dr, but a spokes person for the ministry of Health. shame on him. For HH, this man is a very selfish man, how can he be going all over the world telling people how rich he was and yet his own rite hand man is suffering? how do u expect him to look after 14milion people and yet he is failing to help one person? kikikiki this is a serous joke of the century. Where is another millionaire GBM? may be he is enjoying the suffering of his competitor for the running mate. This is very shameful indeed.

  46. Lungu is a big thief he stole the money for his client and had his license withdrawn. Stupid frank bwalya is a big conman who after failed to rob the catholic hurriedly join politics in order for personal gain. How come today iwe ka bwalya you have built a house in chachacha kitwe where did you get the money because we know that catholic priests do not get paid. You are a big thief that is why you left ministry of christ to join your fellow crooks mumbi phiri, Davies chama, chimbwili chishimba. Come 11 Aug mwe mashilu tukamikata. Please get your phone in program you had with chishimba before forming your abz party we mbwa and see how mad you are. Kuti watombA ABATUNTULU IWE AS YOU SPOCK THAT DAY? TWALAKUPWA WE MBWA WE.

  47. Zambian Accurate News Services
    ITS PART OF ‘FOOLS’ DAY’ FOR PF AND ITS
    MEDIA TO FAKE MY EVICTION – LAUGHS
    CANISIUS BANDA
    UNITED Party for National Development (UPND)
    vice-president for political affairs Canisius Banda
    has laughed off PF Media reports suggesting that
    he has been evicted from the house for none
    payments of rentals describing it a total hoax
    story to maximize fools day. He explained that
    he shifted from the house he was renting to his
    newly built house within Lusaka in February this
    year..
    The UPND Leader who was in a jovial mood
    through out a short interview explained that the
    story in the Zambia Daily Mail was written by
    Amos Chanda whom he described as his
    traditional cousin and friend as a way of
    celebrating First April’s Fools Day.
    “I thought you…

  48. @ipkwa only fools support what is wrong being lunda does not i shud be supporting satanists.
    if you choose to do that basing on tribe then i m sorry you are the primitive *****s who are making our province remain behind by electing tribal campaigners instead of mps who can work and develop nwp.
    Tell me in nwp which upnd mp has done anything not even a toilet from your hh rubbish.
    THIS TIME ITS LUNGU WE WANT DEVELOPMENT NOT TRIBAL NONSE

  49. Zambian society mostly punishes the honest, period! The corrupt simply shut you out of the social and economic life of the country, and accuse one of the laziness nonsense. The honest depend on the Mercy of God.

  50. Wynter Kabimba warned us voters that removing PF from power and replace it with HH’s UPND will make our lives worse than things are today!!THIS IS 100% TRUE!!HOW CAN TRIBAL HH SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS WHEN HE CANNOT EVEN HELP HIS POOR VEEP DR.C.BANDA?IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT UPND TODAY,YOU WILL SEE THAT ALMOST ALL BROKE POLITICAL PROSTITUTES LIKE BOB SICHINGA,VJ MWAANGA,DANIEL MUNKOMBWE,WILLIAM BANDA,KACHINGWE,LUPANDO MWAPE,ETC HAVE GATHERED THEMSELVES IN THERE HOPING TO COME AND STEAL GOVNT MONEY!!JUST LOOK AT HOW DIRTY DR.CANICIUS BANDA LOOKS,AMAZING!!THE NIGGA IS TOO BROKE!!PLUS THERE ARE A LOT OF BROKE OLD NIGGAZ IN UPND!!IF YOU GO TO THEIR RENTED SECRETARIAT IN RHODES PARK,YOU WILL BE SHOCKED BY SEEING POVERTY ON FACES OF PEOPLE AROUND HH!!tell hh to first help people around him before we…

  51. HH and GBM should come out in the open and help your friend.You claim to have a heart for Zambia and yet you cant help your own brother you are working with…….pliz feel pity for Dr Banda and help.Having billions which can not assist human kind is worthless and portrays hypocrisy.

  52. Comment:Blood money has conditions,its not meant 2 help but 2 destroy.I feel 4 HH coz he’s now sorrounded by de cartel wit de lyks of Mmembe,Scot nd Miles thse pipo re ready 2 kill 4 power,dey failed 2 hijack PF nd clossed ova 2 upnd 2 take ova de already known part wen he loses de elections.He shud be carefu wat he puts in his mouth coz de cartels wil do evrythng 2 tk ova.

  53. This world is not fair,a civil servant like Dr C B worked for many years and retire somewhere at 55 or 60 years but goes with nothing,now politicians in just 5 years,they go with alot of money.

  54. If a Dr. can fail to take care of himself even when he has NO wife to share with, how then do you expect him to be your mentor? From the speech he gave at one of the weddings where he was a guest, I concluded that UPND had the wrong man in a wrong position. He started talking for his party forgetting that the audience was a mixed grill.

  55. THIS ATTENTION IS EXACTLY WHAT DR BANDA WANTED. HE HAS BECOME IRRELEVANT AND WAS BEING IGNORED DUE TO THE ‘LOUD’ GBM AND SAMPA AND WANTED SOME ACTION FOR PEOPLE TO REMEMBER THAT HE IS STILL THERE.

    HE DEFECTED FROM MMD TO RUN TO THE MONEY IN UPND. DR BANDA MADE A LOT OF MONEY AS MANDEVU MMD CANDIDATE BUT WAS STINGY AND EVEN ON HIMSSELF. HE HAS TUSHA LODGE. WHY NOT PAY FROM PROCEEDS THERE?

    I THINK HE FEELS OUT OF PACE IN UPND AND WANTS TO CRAWL ON ALL FOURS TO HIS TRIBESMEN IN PF.

  56. This explains why Zambia and Zambians will forever be poor. Honestly, one who cannot put a roof over his or her head is not fit for public office. Make no mistake, he is in the same rank as FB. They say Monkeys are good at laughing at the ugliness of each other’s head. HH owes no one any living. CB is simply not fit for public office. If he has failed to look after himself and his household, how do we expect him to look after anyone?
