FILE: PF supporters of Mulenga Sata campaigning for Mulenga’s PF party presidency with a placard before president Sata’s body arrived

MULENGA Sata was the first to declare his presidential ambitions immediately after the death of his father, President Michael Sata, because he believed the Patriotic Front (PF) belonged to his family and not to the people of Zambia, says Julius Komaki.

Mr Komaki said when President Sata died in London in October, 2014, Mulenga immediately started calling some people in Lusaka while in the United Kingdom, dictating that the party should start organising for his succession because according to him, he was the heir to the throne.

Mr Komaki alleged that a cartel that had held late President Sata hostage and took control of most of the sensitive security State institutions thought they could use Mulenga Sata to continue with their ambitions but that Zambians quickly thwarted the scheme by rejecting the former Lusaka Province minister as his father’s successor.

He recalled that when the body of President Sata arrived at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, Mulenga, instead of showing a solemn face, was happily campaigning among his supporters who were clad in T-shirts printed ‘‘Mulenga Sata for President’’.

Mr Komaki said Mulenga saw an opportunity to become president of the PF and of Zambia after the death of his father. Instead of mourning, he embarked on a campaign to be anointed to take over from late President Sata and had printed campaign materials while the nation was in a state of mourning.

“Immediately President Sata died in London, Mulenga Sata who was in the United Kingdom started calling Lusaka, dictating that the PF should start preparing his succession because he thought he was the rightful heir to the throne.

‘‘In fact, the cartel that held President Sata hostage encouraged Mulenga Sata to go for the presidency because it believed through him it would maintain its hegemony and continue abusing State security institutions and installations to their advantage. Zambians realised this and immediately rejected Mulenga Sata, thereby thwarting the schemes of the cartel,’’ Mr Komaki said.

Mr Komaki said Mulenga Sata had always been a failure politically and that he had risen to his current status not because of his efforts and achievements but because of the name of late President Sata.

Mr Komaki stated that the cartel later realised that Mulenga Sata was a failed project and attempted to anoint former first lady Christine Kaseba, who without reflection, declared her presidential ambitions shortly after her husband had been interred, an act that shocked Zambians to the core.

He said Zambians had not recovered from the shock that former first lady Kaseba could ever think of taking over from her husband as president when she was mourning, an act, he said, was not only unZambian but was culturally and traditionally an abomination.

“After the scheme to install Madam Kaseba flopped, Dr Guy Scott was forced to fire President Edgar Lungu as secretary general of the PF at the time in an attempt to bring back Wynter Kabimba who had previously been fired by President Sata as Justice minister and secretary general of the PF. Zambians rose and the country was tense and the decision to fire President Lungu as secretary general was immediately reversed,” Mr Komaki said.

He said Mulenga Sata was an ungrateful man who had attained most of his political positions purely on humanitarian grounds as he had failed to perform in all his appointments.

  1. Imwe bantu please. Just wish Mulenga Sata well wherever he goes. Complaining in the manner your are doing is retrogressive. Move on. The man has decided to exercise his democratic right. Let the campaigns be of issues and Not Lungu this, Sata that, HH this, Sampa that etc.

    • But that is not news. We all know that. But what is the connection between his desire to take over from the father (Maybe that is what his father had told him) and his today making the right decision to join UPND? No logic. Why wait all this time to only mourn now that Mulenga wanted to succeed his father? keep on mourning till 11 August when we will have multiplicity of heart attacks in PF. Better work on UTH now before that date comes.

    • @1 WE ALREADY WISHED HIM WELL. HOWEVER, THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD TO THE ZAMBIANS WHO MEAN WELL TO THE COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE.
      “…when President Sata died in London in October, 2014, Mulenga immediately started calling some people in Lusaka while in the United Kingdom, dictating that the party should start organising for his succession because according to him, he was the heir to the throne.”
      ZAMBIA IS NOT PA CONGO WHERE SONS TAKE OVER LEADERSHIP WHEN THE FATHER DIES. IT CAN’T HAPPEN AND IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN ZAMBIA. FROM NOWHERE, HOW CAN MULENGA SATA BE PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA? IYO BANE IFINTU NI LUNGU NAFUTI NAFUTI.

  2. A case of sour grapes in the mouth. If the guy is not a factor why make him news worthy by all PF members including Lungu himself?

    • @2 GO AND DEFECATE IN THE MIDDLE OF CAIRO ROAD AND SEE IF THAT WON’T BE NEWS. WHAT I AM SAYING IS, ABNORMAL THINGS ARE THE STUFF THAT MAKE GREAT NEWS. NORMAL THINGS DON’T. IF YOUR DAD IS FOUND DEFECATING IN A POT OF RELISH IF THAT WON’T BE NEWS COME AND CUT MY FINGER. SO, WHAT MULENGA SATA HAS DONE IS GREAT NEWS BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST ABNORMAL THING SINCE THESE CROSS-DEFECTIONS STARTED. IN FACT I DOUBT IF MULENGA SATA EVEN LOVED HIS FATHER. HE LOVED HIS FATHER’S MONEY. MULENGA SATA HAS JUST FINISHED HIMSELF- HE HAS NO FORESIGHT WHATSOEVER.

  3. It’s been painful devastating blow to PF to be dumped like rubbish hence the smear campaign against young man who has decided to exercise his rights. Boring. What are they going to do when the whole nation dumps them in August?

    • We just want to tell you the useful excess baggage you HH is getting. These defectors are all losers cards. Zambians can see who is defecting due to selfish ambition or due to pure patriotism. These discussions are good to help people see who these guys really are. We are serious about winning and we will never stop bringing these comments as long as they counteract the defections and give PF advantages. This is an election time and a time to play to the gallery at some hotels. we are serious about winning.

  5. Everyone from the president to a cadre like Komaki all talking about the same person, Sata’s son, and you are claiming he is not a factor. Why is his name on your lips? Just focus on what you are going to do for us because your previous promises of more money in our pockets, lower taxes, no electricity blackouts etc won’t work this time. Mind you I can’t eat a road so don’t tell me about roads.

    • BA NO.5 DO REALLY THINK MORE MONEY CAN JUST COME WITHOUT HARD WORK? WHEN SATA SAID MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKETS, HE MEANT THAT THE GOVT WILL CREATE AN ENABLING ENVIRONMENT FOR ANYONE TO DO ANYTHING BY BUILDING NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURE. SATA NEVER MEANT BANK TRANSFERS INTO YOUR POCKETS WITHOUT HAVING DONE ANYTHING. HE MEANT-‘WE AS GOVERNMENT WILL BUILD A ROAD AND YOU AS A CITIZEN YOU WILL HAVE TO GROW PLENTY FOOD AND EFFICIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY USE THE ROAD TO TAKE YOUR PRODUCE TO WHERE THE MARKETS ARE.AND AFTER SELLING YOUR PRODUCE COME BACK WITH MORE IMPLEMENTS TO HELP YOU IMPROVE AND INCREASE YOUR YIELDS AND EVEN MAKE MORE MONEY’. GRZ HAS BEEN BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

  6. HH is also shocked that he is receiving pipo like Mulenga Sata wondering if they are coming bc they believe in him. They are just frustrated. They wanted presidency. They never liked Lungu in the first place and they are showing their true colours.

    • @8 YOU ARE RIGHT AND THAT’S WHERE MC SATA OUTWITTED ALL LAZY BUMS. MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA WOULD HAVE NEVER CHOSEN YOU JUST BECAUSE YOU WERE HIS SON. YOU HAVE TO HAVE GENUINELY, BEEN HARD-WORKING, WISE, INTELLIGENT, PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES, BELIEVER IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING, LOYAL TO YOUR BELONGING, SHARING COMMON VALUES AND EVEN MORE SO ACCEPTABLE BY THE PEOPLE YOU ARE SERVING. MC SATA WAS VERY QUICK TO KNOW IF YOU DID NOT POSSESS SUCH QUALITIES AND THEREFORE, KEPT YOU AWAY FROM SENSITIVE RESPONSIBILITIES. HE NEW WHY HE DROPPED KABIMBA AND REPLACED HIM WITH ECL WHO WAS EVEN GIVEN MORE RESPONSIBILITIES AND WE CAN SEE IT EVEN IN THE ABSENCE OF THE APPOINTING AUTHORITY.

  12. Guy scot once told us that he and mulenga did not qualify to stand for presidency because they were both foreigners. So it was wishful thinking and wizard like manner for him to be campaigning for presidency before burying his father.
