UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda
UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda

THE United Party for National Development (UPND) has scoffed at a statement by the Patriotic Front (PF) suggesting that it’s vice-president for political affairs Canisius Banda is in need of a financial bailout.

UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma said in an interview yesterday that Dr Banda was financially stable as evidenced by the recent migration into his ‘own house’.

Dr Banda was evicted from a rented house in Lusaka’s Presidential Housing Initiative (PHI) area last week on grounds that he owed the landlord undisclosed amounts of money.

PF member of the central committee Paul Moonga wondered why UPND president Hakainde Hichilema could not come to the aid of Dr Banda following his eviction.

But Mr Kakoma said Dr Banda was on record as having cleared the air on the ‘purported’ eviction, saying the opposition leader had shifted into an abode of his own.

“Dr Banda has already issued a statement on that matter. Did he say he needs any financial bailout? He moved into his own house, he was not evicted, that’s what he said,” Mr Kakoma said.

Dr Banda is also on record accusing the PF of trying to woo him by offering him accommodation and a new vehicle.

    • THEN IN THAT CASE DR CANICIUS BANDA AND UPND ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED IN GOVERNMENT IF THEY CAN START LYING EVEN ON SIMPLE ISSUES SUCH AS RENTALS OF A SIMPLE HOUSE. MOREOVER, DR BANDA IN THAT CASE IS VERY IRRESPONSIBLE TO JUST IGNORE PAYMENT OF RENTALS TO HIS LANDLORD, IF IT IS TRUE HE IS FINANCIALLY STABLE OF WHICH WE DOUBT. ANYWAY, IF THAT’S THE ATTITUDE OF DR BANDA OUT OF GOVERNMENT, THEN YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING FOR YOU WITH DR BANDA AND UPND IN GOVERNMENT. AT LEAST ZAMBIANS HAVE AN IDEA THAT THEY WILL HAVE, A JUST-DON’T-CARE MINISTERS WHO MAY NOT EVEN BOTHER TO PAY CONTRACTORS EVEN IF MONEY WERE THERE. BE CAREFUL ZAMBIANS

  2. He must be arrogant and lawless then. Why would you rent someone’s house and yet fail to meet your obligation until you get evicted. Am sure he moved to his unfinished house which doesn’t even have a roof and windows. He was just waiting for the rains to stop .

  8. A lot of business minded people in lusaka do that, put your bigger houses on rent, then you go and find a comfortable smaller house for rent, i have done that before it’s just good business sense.

    • Yes. I am doing that also. Its not everyone who rents who doesnt have a house. Just because Edgar Chagwa Lungu is in an institutional house doesnt mean he doesnt have a house of his own. even Frank Bwalya is in a rented house. All ministers and permanent secretaries are in institutional houses.

    • @10 BUT THATS NOT THE ARGUMENT, BUDDY. HE WAS ON A TENANCY CONTRACT. BUT, HE WASN’T PAYING RENTALS TO THE LANDLADY. IS THAT WHAT YOU DO, TOO? AND THESE CHAPS ARE ASPIRING FOR LEADERSHIP- SO THEY HAVE A LOT AT STAKE. YOU ARE NOT. SO, WE MAY NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR MISSED RENTALS. THEY ARE PERSONAL TO YOU AND YOUR LANDLORD. WHEREAS, IT IS A NATIONAL ISSUE IF LUBINDA FAILS TO PAY FOR A SUIT HE BOUGHT ON HIRE-PURCHASE. BECAUSE, NEXT GIVEN LUBINDA WILL BE EYEING THE STATE COFFERS TO SETTLE HIS PRIVATE SUIT DEBTS. UPND ARE JUST FACING UP NOW THAT THEY HAVE JUST REALISED HOW THEIR CARELESSNESS HAS AFFECTED THEIR ELECTORAL CHANCES AS A PARTY.

  13. An aspiring leader who does not have a clean debt record will do the same with state resources. UNDP, this guy is spoiling your chances big time if the story is true.

    • Ba chimbwi iwe stop lecturing UPND on morals when you are happy that Lungu who stole a clients oney is your president.

      UPND has relatively the most moarlly upright leaders who are not in politics to plunder.

      UPND IS THE FUTURE FOR ZAMBIA.
