UPND women on the Copperbelt say they are shocked that PF leaders have continued issuing remarks bordering on hate speech just a few days after political parties agreed to engage in civil discourse.

Reacting to PF Deputy General Secretary Mumbi Phiri’s remarks on Monday that mentioning some names makes her loses appetite in reference to Hakainde Hichilema, Faith Mushongo the UPND Copperbelt Women’s Chairperson said remarks by Ms Phiri showed the PF’s lack of tolerance and hatred that they harbour against fellow citizens with different political views.

Ms Mushongo said Ms Phiri should realize that the opposition leader is not only the head of political party but that he is also a family man with a wife and children.

“PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri’s remarks yesterday on Joy FM that she loses her appetite whenever she hears the name Hakainde Hichilema show the level of intolerance, and even hatred, that the entire PF leadership harbours against fellow citizens who hold different political views.

“It is shocking that the PF leadership are back with hate speech barely a week after the political parties Indaba that called for civil public discourse as a way of reducing and ending political violence,” she said.

She said the PF have no campaign message hence the continued attacks on the opposition leader.

“They have now resorted to name calling and much worse in their quest for political survival, as opposed to articulating ideas and plans about how they hope to improve people’s lives. This is misguided and dangerous behaviour.

“Hateful and derogatory remarks, libellous innuendos, and demeaning accusations against fellow citizens are being given air at the expense of discussion of priority areas such as healthcare provision and education, agriculture, job creation for youths, energy deficit, and the ever increasing high cost of living and other issues,” she said.

She also said President was Lungu making the situation worse as with failure to discipline leader who are perpetrating hate speech and political violence.

  1. PF is just a shell, wait and see what happens when parliament dissolves. ECL has no grip on power in the PF, No drunk anyway has grip on anything other than the message in a bottle. I really sympathize with ECL!

    • Do the likes of Mumbi Phiri and Dora Siliya take cognizance of the fact they are mothers and their utterances cause irreparable damage to their character? They can appease themselves as being thick skinned but it doesn’t do them any good. In positions of leadership one would think they would be exemplary for the girl child but they are just a mess for role model appeal! I guess we need a special type alangizi for women in politics!

    • MAIZE IS LEAVING THE BORDERS OF OUR COUNTRY EVERY BLESSED DAY INTO THE NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES, AND LUNGU AND TEAM ARE THERE SLEEPING ON DUTY. OH, THEY ARE FULLY AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON, ONLY THEY ALLOW IT BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY CORRUPT. CORRUPTION HAS KILLED OUR COUNTRY. UNDER LUNGU’S LEADERSHIP WE ARE DOOMED BECAUSE CORRUPTION IS LUNGU’S CUP OF TEA. MILLIONS OF ZAMBIANS HAVE BEEN DISADVANTAGED BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION PERPETRATED BY PF GOVERNMENT LEADERS. THE WHOLE GOVERNANCE SYSTEM IN ZAMBIA IS BROKEN. AUGUST 11 IS TOO FAR WHEN WE HAVE TO CHANGE GOVERNMENT.

  2. PF campaign strategy – Donchi kubeba reloaded:

    A. Obtusification: Lying that Lungu is not to blame for all economic ills and that it is Global….that Zambians should endure suffering like Zimbabweans whilst Lungu luxuriates in riches and body weight increase like the hogs of Animal Farm Oswells satire.
    B. Falsification / Smear / Hate campaign: Accuse HH of sattanism, mason, privatisation
    C. Tribalism: Demeaning other tribes that they cannot challenge Muchinga Bemba PF failure. Label all Non-Muchinga PF Bembas as Tonga and insult them as one. Wako ni Wako RB-Dora-Lungu-Mumbi Phiri chaiwo
    D. Violence through Police and PF militias.
    E. Blackout HH from public media.
    F. Stop HH from campaigning.
    G. Enhanced corruption using increased borrowings to bribe PF taxi drivers and…

  3. PF and ‘its humble’ but vicious leader know they are not wanted by vast number of Zambians hence the hatred. All thier evil plans to postpone elections are failing, people are just too peaceful to be coerced into fighting so elections could be canceled. There they are already gnashing their teeth in regret of the gravy train they are being kicked out of come 11/8/2016. I didn’t know some women could be this vindictive and hateful like Mumbi is exhibiting.

  4. why shocked when your leader (HH) always insults when he has no answer on how he got the wealth he has? UPND women have no morals to talk about hate speech because they themselves match naked in streets in the name of protesting & the following the insults by their god (ichilema)
    lusambo-moron
    guy Scot- white fool man i have never seen
    Zambians- Zambians are fools to have voted for EL
    GBM- Big body but small brains
    Nawakwi- I will arrange for some thugs to rape you
    and many insults that ichilema has insulted

  5. why you be shocked when your leader (HH) always insults when he has no answer on how he got the wealth he has? UPND women have no morals to talk about hate speech because they themselves match naked in streets in the name of protesting & the following the insults by their god (ichilema)

  6. why should you be shocked when your leader (HH) always insults when he has no answer on how he got the wealth he has? UPND women have no morals to talk about hate speech because they themselves match naked in streets in the name of protesting & the following the insults by their god (ichilema)

  7. upnd is most violent party while in opposition zambia ha ever had just look at bad the language of their so called leader its about insults & name calling, such as the following:
    lusambo-moron
    guy scot-foolish white i have ever seen
    GBM-Big body but small brains
    zambians-are foolish for having voted for EL
    with all this hate speech this man is still an elder in SDA

  8. There is nothing wrong about questioning HH’s role in the Privatisation of National Assets. HH should just come out and explain his roles in the privatisation of Mines , Lima Bank, Intercontinental Hotel and other state assets. Let the government pass the Freedom of Information Bill and this impostor will be stripped naked , and the country will know the person they are dealing with. Is it hate speech to ask someone who was working for the liquidator of Lima Bank to tell the nation how he came to be in possession of the Kabulonga Lima Bank House ? Is it wrong for some one to want to find out how Zambezi Sun Hotel came to be owned by some one working for the liquidator. Is it wrong for some one to ask how someone who was asked to value Luanshya Copper Mines ended stripping the Assets…

    • Is it TRUE that the name HH makes you lose appetite??? Hate speech will consume you completely. You are making RB look like a STAR………The worst we have in 50 years.

    • Why cant she have the guts of questioning Mbita Chitalu or Akashambatwa because they were the engine of most privatisations which happened under Chiluba. This iswa* is always carrying one argument about the sale of Luanshya mine. Let’s put it to her that the Vendor was GRZ and the buyer was Ramcos. GRZ was advised by HH whose suggestion was turned down or should have been scrutinized by the likes of Sata Mbita and Aka and their boss Chiluba. The vendor had the right to say no which they didn’t. Would any sensible person blame the advisor or vendor.
      The vendor must shoulder the blame .This Sosw* should have tabled this with King Cobra.Guess what ,the answer should have been ‘ni mine wakwa wiso.’

  9. Is it hate speech to ask someone who was working for the liquidator of Lima Bank to tell the nation how he came to be in possession of the Kabulonga Lima Bank House ? Is it wrong for some one to want to find out how Zambezi Sun Hotel came to be owned by some one working for the liquidator. Is it wrong for some one to ask how someone who was asked to value Luanshya Copper Mines ended stripping the same Assets under the guise of Accounting fees. There is a lot we know about your HH. In USA this guy cannot survive a single day in politics.

    • Phew,was almost thinking there that the government has adduced sufficient evidence to indict HH.Fortunately it is still the same barking by another dog with no tail.Go and wipe your ar.se.

  10. change should be for all zambians,including your prefered candidate for presidency.Hatred Is everywhere,in other tribes there have been told rubbish about bembas which we see clearly in schools and other places-so politicians are not the only culprits,

  11. it is sad that a woman who met the pop and attended the indaba cant change. we are calling upon Lungu to tame this lady.

  12. As I noted before, apart from a cognitive impairment, Mumbi Phiri is also experiencing low levels of estrogen, hence her emotional changes and mood swings. The fluctuating production of her estrogen has also affected her sex drive. Ideally, to improve this, she would need estrogen therapy. One other cheaper way, though, would be to create a schedule where from time to time she fantasizes over a man’s name or initials. In this case, she has settled on HH. This takes a few minutes of her time on every day, but on each occasion she is able to experience an explosive exhilarating orgasm.

  13. Uyu Sololá nankwe.Go and tell chakolwa munobe ati you wasted time attending all these church functions when your attitude is that of thugs afraid of losing elections and inturn stop stealing.

  14. PF is the worst party ever to rule zambia. There are so many things that have gone wrong in the country and instead of addressing these problems they prefer name calling the opposition. People want solutions and not this rubbish we’re receiving from Lungu and his thugs. Vote wisely august 11 and boot this clueless Lungu and his imbeciles.
