Republican and PF President Edgar Lungu has said that he will not be crucified for embracing people joining the party from other political parties.

Mr Lungu said said that politics is about numbers and those people leaving the ruling party should not disparage him for welcoming new members from other parties.

Mr Lungu said that those who do so are not politicians and that the late President Michael Sata built PF on the back of membership from the MMD.

“We are welcoming people from UPND, from MMD, from any other political party for that matter because that is a culture that Mr Sata left. Mr did not build PF from without. Where did he get the membership from? He got it from MMD. So anyone who thinks that by disparaging us because we are welcoming other is not a politician, politics is about numbers.

“If people in MMD,UPND are willing to work with us why can’t we embrace them? I’m I going to be criminalised because I have embraced others? I know that Mr Sata did appoint people from UPND, from MMD as Ministers. What has changed? So, people who are trying to crucify me for betraying Mr Sata didn’t know him,” he said.

He explained that he was politically more closer to the founder of the PF than some people cared to know, adding that he was President of the Republic because President Sata trusted him.

“Mr Sata was a politician and I think I was closer to him than some people might want to know and that’s why I am President. If it were not so, he wouldn’t have entrusted me with those huge responsibilities the way he did. He knew that there were others but he trusted me, he allowed me to act as President, he allowed me to act as Minister of Defence, he allowed me to act as Minister of Justice,” he said.

He also called on the PF members to work hard and ensure victory on 11th August.

    • He probably didn’t know his father and explains why his father was just happy to keep him as a mere councilor..I think as a father I would be disappointed if my son left my estate to rascals and went to prop up my arch enemy’s estate. The Best Mulenga Sata should have done is at least form his own political party or just stay away from politics for now than being used and abused by GBM. PF has Sata’s fingerprints on it and Mulenga Sata was a potential future leader for PF, could have created a political dynasty like the Gandis, the Bush, the Kenyattas of this world, but too disillusioned. Maybe the Grade 12 story is true after all. It will be tough for PF to welcome him back. Big mistake made

    • Its not about crucifying you Sir, but dinning and taking orders from RB as we have all seen how his inner circle has become your closest associates at the expense of old PF founder members. If you make the bed, you must surely lie in it.
      Anyways, God confuses people before he gets rid of them. Honestly how do you bring close people like Mumbi Phiri, Frank Bwalya, etc at the expense of GBM, Guy Scott, Miles Sampa , Mulenga Sata? POlitics is a game of numbers. These people have a following. Lets see in August if that one % is safe. Plus poverty… awe Kuyabebele apa!!!

    • For sure Mulenga didn’t know his father very well, that could have been the reason why he was just a Councillor. I really doubt if he is truly a politician, Mulenga should have been the one to benefit more from his father`s vast knowledge but he chose to do the wrong things which is really sad. We are not sure weather he will be really happy with the UPND.

I am sick and tired of Sata who in my own opinion contributed greatly to this crumbling economy of ours by starting huge capital investments projects without proper feasibility study and where the resources will come from to fund those projects hence huge debts which has already started haunting us. Leave the old man alone and run your own race…. This time around no compassionate vote iwe Chagwa

    • Im not sure whether or not its a right thing to say, but it seems as if President Lungu, more often than not, speaks in the defensive tone and seldom in a commanding tone. I might be wrong, but thats what I have noticed. A leader must inspire the listeners each time he speaks. There must be that sense of inner confidence like someone who actually believes what they are talking about.

      Insecure people talk as if they always need to justify their actions. This sounds like an opposition type of speech. More like, you are accusing me of this and that and Im not that kind of a person, kind of talk. People must just say what they need to say and mean it.

    • Mulenga’s defection is a heavy blow way below the belt.
      Do not down play it. Mulenga may not be a big political short but he has already influenced reasonable votes in favor of HH. Some street venders I’m told have been heard saying “Abene ba party nabafumamo ngayifwe chinshi tungashalilamo?” Remember if they vote against or if they don’t it’s still to HH’s advantage just like the 2015 elections apathy.

      Iwe HH this is not acceptable. ECl was preparing to go to Kitwe & commission construction of a useless shopping mall & u HH unexpectedly threw a punch below the belt. Why not punch to the face & the chest or even an uppercut cos these are allowed? I mean hunt for Davies Mwila, Kalaba, Sikazwe, Siliya, Kambwili, Kalima, Mtolo etc. What wud HH have done if Mutinta Mazoka or your…

    • What wud HH have done if Mutinta Mazoka or your own Mutinta also defected to PF? Turning your friend’s son against his father’s party is a taboo of severe consequences. HH you’ll be haunted by Sata’s ghost. Please advise Mulenga to rescind his decision.

      HH must be disqualified for a professional boxing foul on ECL!

      However one looks at it is one of the hugest game changers to HH’s advantage. Remember HH ‘lost’ only by 27,000 votes even with sympathy vote. Now amidst economic quagmire seen by all that ECL is incapable can one doubt that ECL will be clobbered? We have already experienced his failures why continue with more of the same economic suicide for another 5 years? Lets try HH with the hope that a new person will do things positively different. If he fails we kick him…

    • If he fails we kick him out in 2021. Kaunda, Mandela, Nujoma, Chiluba etc had no prior Governance experience. So the notion that HH has no prior GVT experience is a mere fallacy used as a ploy to decampaign him. We believe he is successful in his business endeavors & hope he will be successful President. politically he has already achieved that feat of holding an opposition party for 10 years just like Sata. Ask Kavindele & late BY how hard it is to sustain a party in oppostion. Even Mazoka himself may never have attained that feat had he been alive. HH is a great resource mobilizer & hopefully he can do that nationally if given the mantle.

      Mulenga’s defection is a heavyfoul blow by HH way below the belt (So unexpected. Sata should have been the last man standing in PF regards of his G12 disqualification)
      The anticipated Kaseba defection will be a strong foul kick by HH at ECL’s Knees
      If his Veep Bo Inonge also defects it will be a sweeper foul kick by HH to the ECL’s feet strong enough to knock ECL down.
      Finally the anticipated rumored defections of cabinet ministers & esp MPs from LP & NPafter dissolution of Parliament will a foul Tsunami to sweep him away completely.

    • Results may be long to come but indicators of one’s capability of running the economy must be immediate. Indicators include vision, policy guidance, program implementation, articulation of issues, etc. You have none of these. Mwanawasa & RB showed these qualities from day one but off course results were long to be seen.

      We don’t need 5 years to tell whether a newly born animal will grow up to be a cow, a goat or a horse. One year six months is enough to know your inability coupled your disastrous past legal history.

    • Politically, Chilufya may not have known his father. It is that simple. He may not have shared sensitive political issues with him, but with other political family members like ECL. If Chilufya is angy that ECL is welcoming new members, why should he feel welcomed in UPND. It is said do unto other what you want them to to do unto you. This is total hypocrisy and HH and UPND are so blind they cannot see it.

HE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO PROPAGATE IT EVEN MORE. BUT, I BELIEVE WHAT FRANK BWALYA SAID. MULENGA SATA IS NOT HIMSELF AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS FATHER. HE IS IN A CONFUSED STATE AND PEOPLE ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HIS CURRENT STATE. IT IS TRUE, PEOPLE SHOULD PRAY FOR HIM. IT WILL NOT TAKE LONG BEFORE HE COMES BACK TO PF AFTER HIS MIND HAS SETTLED AND HE HAS STARTED TO ACCEPT THE DEMISE OF HIS FATHER. IT HAPPENED TO ME, TOO. I STARTED DOING STRANGE THINGS.

    • Mulenga Sata’s joining UPND is a body blow to PF and Lungu, in particular. It is a kick in the mouth and his exit utterances a further stab in Lungu’s drunken back. It puts questions on Lungu’s judgement of character. It also throws questions on what Mulenga found on PF’s feeding grounds in Lusaka. All he can be expected to be in UPND is a quiet and loyal supporter. Surely he has not joined as chief campaign manager or COO.

    • @6.2 Patriot Abroad, much as I continue to hold you in high esteem, I am inclined to believe that you will not, in this one instance, betray my trust of your good judgment. What the two of us should rather find difficult to disagree upon is that, whether one is Jimmy the genius or Mike the moron, the future of such a one is an unbridled horse. It always has been. It always will be. So whether one is a Mulenga Sata or a Miles Sampa, it makes no difference.
      But if we should see Mulenga Sata, and not just him, Miles Sampa as well; and not just these two, but GBM also; and not just these three; but a host of others – all of them making the same move – switching from where they easily would have been guests of honor to where they may not even be guests at all, it behooves us to ask why?

In more developed democracies, a great deal of attention is paid to respective “endorsements” a particular candidate receives. They are a precursor of what could be in the offing for or against that candidate.

Also, can read why Cobra junior decided to leave. He did not leave because you embraced other but simply you have no vision and leadership skills. In short, you are incompetent. Like I said the corruption levels are all time high today because you are a weak leader. This is what has contributed to the collapse of the economy. The looting is too much. Siphoning millions of dollars in individual pockets has crippled the Nation. He left to save his country from doom. In national interest and we respect him for that. Cobra junior is wise.

HH and UPND could be celebrating political incompetence at its worst.

      Electricity supply shortage would have not reached these critical levels if MMD had done their part as PF is doing to erect new hydro stations, generate power from coal in Mumbwa, renewable energy – solar power plant projects, etc.
      Unemployment was already at 75% when PF took over power and with a mono-economy dependent on copper as soon as commodity prices crushed, the figure rose to 85%. However, this will be adressed with diversification of the Zambian economy.

  17. Do not praise yourself Mr president. Why should you have a problem with madam kaseba? How would you feel if someone coming after you treated your wife the way you have done to kaseba. Conduct a lunch on for all former president’s families. You are their father, husband and whatever.

  18. Is he implying that Sata would by now be dining with Rupiah and Dora. Ma cadres please then why did he convince us to vote those people out. Sometimes use your brains.

  19. “We are welcoming people from UPND, from MMD, from any other political party for that matter because that is a culture that Mr Sata left. Mr did not build PF from without. Where did he get the membership from? He got it from MMD.”

    This is the worst statement I have ever read !!! It tells me and confirms two thing:
    1> ECL has no vision of his own, he is okay with status quo. He is a manager not a leader. A leader is one who strive to make a difference, a person who strives to transform. I think he can learn from Trump who has defied all the GOP rules, and sticking to his vision on how he wants to transform America.
    2> Clearly encouraging Political Prostitution. A clear indication that Zambian politics is not based on personal conviction, whether one is republican, social democrat,…

  20. No need for insults folks. Mr Michael Sata ran his race and his name should rest. As for Mulenga, he has to curve his own future and be his own man as he sees it. People that decide to be ”daddy’s boy forever” can not go far.

  22. Lungu to me you are a good president, but you have made some mistakes.
    You haven’t recognised those who mattered in the party.
    You should have kept Scott. In the cabinet, promoted Sampa. Mulenga, Sichinga shouldn’t have been left out.
    Dora doesn’t deserve to be minister again, those are some of your political mistakes.
    Of course you need some experience.

  25. Enough about Lungu’s vision or lack thereof. What is HH’s Vision?. And should the personal vision thing override that of the party? Why a nitwits capitalising on this obvious faux pas from Lungu? Faux Pas. That all it was. Everybody has a vision and a mission.

  27. Lets be more analytical than just comment for the sake of it. There is a big difference between President Lungu and PF and HH and is UPND. Whenever there is coerced defection to UPND, we see the whole bunch of UPND so called leaders parading to welcome these “defectors”. I have never see President Lungu and indeed never saw late President parade themselves to receiving defectors because it genuine and your party popular, this should be a normal thing.
    HH is the spokes person, the manager, the president, the judge and everything, just how possible is this? Well come 11 August, 2016, Under 5 will know the wrath of Zambians. We all know that the cartel has never relented to fight an innocent man by name of ECL and what they should know is that he will once again trounce them and this time…

  28. While Lungu used RB to win the Presidential by-election in 2015 this has alienated some big guns in PF. This RB connection, decline in the economic fortunes,governace issues and other toxic issues will work against ECL and PF. The rumours that ECL and PF want to rig elections will also work against them. May the popular canditates win

  29. You are right Mr. President. Your Party also needs best brains to run & survive not those none committed members claiming membership for life on silver platter like Scott, Mulenga Sata but doing little to serve Zambians & win more votes. However, you don’t need torush to appease new members like Dora Siliya, Margret Mwanakatwe who add little value, at the expense of old hardworking loyal members. If those complaining of competition were realistic they couldn’t be joining other parties causing similar chaos in those parties, but forming theirs like Sampa.

  30. My diagnosis- Lusaka PF 60% to UPND 40%. UPND winning by slim margins in Kafue, Chilanga and Rufunsa (Lusaka Rural) with PF taking all urban areas. The UPND will lose on the Copperbelt by a margin of 65% to 35% with UPND not winning a single MP in the area. Central Province will be shared almost evenly. Western Province is at play and is a very uncertain prospect. With Inonge Wina on the ballot paper, the dynamics could change drastically for the UPND. North Western and Luapula Provinces will cancel each other out and so will Southern and Eastern Provinces (The UPND has deliberately chosen to include this in its calculations). The PF will win Northern Province, rather convincingly because the only areas they have lost some following is Kasama Central. I still expect PF to carry Kasama…

  31. Ba Tripoli read the heading properly. ECL is the man of the moment. He has humbled himself that is why God has rewarded him and come 11.08.16 God will re-reward him Gen.15:1. Only devils can be against ECL. HH was against MC Sata through out his reign, today the poor Mulenga Sata joins HH & UPND who were rejoicing when MC Sata – MHSRIP passed on because they thought they would rule Zambia by fishing in troubled waters, God forbid. HH you have missed it like Esau and you will cry the loudest this time. As for Mulenga Sata, you are not a factor in politics even your late father couldn’t see it in you that’s why he couldn’t give you any position in government. You are like a son of a business man who is being groomed and upon the death of his father he couldn’t continue where his…

    Stop dreaming it is now day time just go and work if at all PF gave you a job. Just wait for August 11, 2016 to be taken to UTH for severe high blood pressure because PF is now a shell, EL won through the name of Sata , now the Sata family is not there for him. It is game over, bye bye PF, personally I do not care who wins the election in august 2016, I will continual running my company without problems.

  36. Comment:Ati Pf has been overrun by mmd. what about the 21 mmd who joined upnd. Have they overrun Upnd? And Mazoka is turning in his grave. I don’t trust zambian politicians. Most if not all are opportunists and fake.

  37. Lungu the normal thing civilized people do is thank the person who left wish them well and not utter ill conceived utterances towards them, that’s maturity and good leadership than crying like a little baby. The man made good pointers or great observations about you.if you smart you will make some changes. You are not Jesus and definitely not a saint.Good presidents listen and bad ones are always on the defensive or love lashing out at others.

  38. What is worrying me as a person is that most people or more than 50% of the bloggers on this thread are people based outside Zambia, in others words they live in diaspora. Reading through the many comments one may conclude that HH is winning this year’s general elections, but this is coming from people living or working in other countries. Yes they may influence a few friends and relatives here and there to vote for a particular candidate or say HH for instance, but that may not be enough for him to win the elections. I have seen Presidents come and go from KK through to Michael Sata and I am sure they all had weaknesses as well as positives. I do not hate Edger Lungu as a person but having Edger Lungu as a president of Zambia is the worst thing that the country has ever experienced. In…

  39. In as far as I am concerned he hasn’t got a single positive thing that I can point a finger at and say yes this project was initiated by Edger Lungu. He is more concerned about what he can benefit from the country rather than what he can do for the country. If you look at his cabinet ministers which he, himself chose, is a mixture of chaff and bran. HH seems to be the only hope for Zambia, given a mandate by the majority Zambians, he will perform incredibly well to prove a point that he is actually better than Lungu. Reading through the comment today, this particular posting @1.11 by Neutral caught my attention: “Abene ba party nabafumamo ngayifwe chinshi tungashalilamo?” This was uttered by the street vendors. These street boys and girls are the people who start the revolution, once…

    • You are tried very much to sound nuetral when infact you are a UPND supporter also based outside Zambia. Those of us who are on the ground especially CB there is no UPND here even the street venders you are talking about know very well that Mulenga Sata has betyrayed his father.What is HH going to do with those frustratted defectors he has recieved to revive this this economy?He will find the same loadshedding, the same debts, the same expenditure in terms of govt salaries so what is he going to about all these which he has failed to tell us up to now! He may just end up blaming PF the whole five years.

  40. Something sinister has crept into Zambian politics.There is too many grudges and scores to settle.There is a new trend of politics never seen before,the phone tapping,the scandalizing,the demonizing.Is this borne out of love for the poor or just a fight of egos for the elite or just people who feel their are destined to rule and have been disowned.As a common man on the street I will never fathom the bone of contention

  41. I hope HH has finally accepted that Bembas are the King makers in Zambia. This should explain why he has accepted bembas enmass in his party. Sampa told him so. So he has now come to help him win the Zambian presidency. Just look at history. Kaunda was made president because of the help of the bembas, Chiluba was made president because of Bembas (He was Kaushi himself), Mwanawasa was made president because of Bembas, Lungu made President because of Bembas. But 2016 appears to be different. Bembas are in both PF and UPND. So which bembas are stronger and more crafty? The ones in PF or UPND? Wapya munzi!

  42. If you form a political party and you want to make it a family affair then don’t register it because the moment you register it and allow other people other than your family to members of that party then it ceases to be a family affair. So those saying my father this? my uncle this? ambuya that? should stop because PF is a national entity just like UNIP is and so UPND and others. Mulenga Sata is not a factor in this election but those who are desperate for votes will think that Mulenga Sata will bring tenfold to their election fortune NaNaNa, he may bring only his family that is all. And if he has no grade 12 then he will remain a member of UPND without any ambition of being MP let alone a minister.
