UPND running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has attributed the high poverty levels facing the majority to poor ?eadership by President Edgar Lungu and his government.

Mr Mwamba said this when he addressed a huge rally at Changanamai grounds in Kitwe yesterday afternoon,

“Its a pity that President Lungu seems not realise that the loss of jobs by miners has greatly led to high poverty levels such that many children are not going to school because parents cannot pay school fees,”

He said such a situation can only change when people vote for UPND President and his running mate including the councillor, member of parliament and the Mayor or Chairperson.

He said it is clear that President Lungu has no vision and does not care about the Zambian people,

“Here is a President who increased his already huge salary while civil servants continue receiving the same salary which is also delayed.”

Mr Mwamba said the latest revelation about President Lungu’s assets at 23.7 leaves everyone to wonder where all that money came from because it is clear that the PF said Zambia has no money despite the huge euro bond borrowed.

Subsidies were removed by the PF and no one seems to know where the money saved is and to hear that President Lungu has all that cash leaves so much suspicion as to what the source of all the wealth is.

GBM and his entourage yesterday held rallies in Lufwanyama, Mufulira and Kitwe.
He is back in Lusaka to attend a court session today.

National Trustee Bernard Mpundu said President Lungu’s newly acquired wealth must be investigated because the period is too short.

UPND officials have also rubbished the Sonta statement because that is only possible to a Party that has ruled like UNIP MMD and PF.

Frank Tayali accompanying the Vice President said the Party have all to Sonta such as high price of mealie meal, loss of jobs, Delayed salaries for civil servants and delayed payment for farmers among others.

Gabriel Namulambe who was also in the encourage said people in Masaiti and Lufwanyama constituencies have unanimously decided to change Government by voting for UPND and President Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate come 11th August 2016.

And Former Lands Minister Glads Lundwe says Copperbelt rural is most underdeveloped, mainly due to lack of a quality leadership.

And former Mpongwe PF member of parliament Gabriel Namulambe says rural farmers should show the PF and President Lungu that they can not be fooled.

Speaking at a public rally in Mishikishi area in Masaiti rural on Monday, Lundwe said the lambaland last saw development during the time of former President Levy Mwanawasa.

” When the PF came, what did they promise us? It was heaven on earth, but today, were are we? Copperbelt rural has remained the most underdeveloped because of lies from the politicians, especially the PF. Twakana ku chula naba PF, naba Edgar Lungu. This time kuyabebele, we don’t want jokers as leaders,” Lundwe said.

And Namulambe said people are today suffering because of lack of visionary leadership.

” When we speak, people to hear from us. Its not hatred but we know what we talking about. We have worked with President Lungu, the man just does not have a vision for this country. Don’t even worst time to vote for him again. Let us look for leadership that will care for us the poor. Lambaland has been neglected by the PF. Today, the PF have nothing to point at in lambaland. So we will tell them to sonta at the amount of fertilizer!,” he said

    • Tongas generally do not know how to dress. Look at HH’s shirt. But I think HH was ill advised to dress poorly so that he wins poor people’s sympathy and make them feel like one of them. What people can do for power awe.

    • When all is said and done, a Zambian is too backward to distinguish between poverty, suffering and doomsday from success and progress. They are so used to hardship that they have even developed a serious success phobia..They are repelled from it when the see, or smell it. I would rather concentrate on my own well being than wasting so much time trying to help a Zambian, who doesnt even what development it…too dull.

    • HH is very, very discouraging and disappointing indeed
      HH is not presidential material.
      Worse still is his running mate GBM.
      Surely, is HH himself convinced and comfortable that he can leave the nation in the hands of GBM if he died or became incapable of ruling, if at all he ever became president?
      It is this same judgment he has exhibited when choosing his running mate that makes me think he is not president material – the judgment is very lame and shocking.
      In leadership you have to put all things on the table; for each decision look at advantages and disadvantages. Then make the decision that represents best judgment.
      It is wrong for HH to think just because GBM is the one who can bring in tribal balance, and possibly (in his thinking) make UPND win, then pick GBM on that…

    • GBV (formerly GBM) talks a lot. I shudder to imagine him as republican vice president.
      Making promises is extremely easy but can you also kindly tell the Zambians how you will fulfill them?

      Tell us how you will make mealie meal cheaper or even free. how you will make education and health services free, how you will fix the economy when we all know that you cant fix the economy.

      If you can adequately address the ‘how’ part of your promises and we are agreeable to your plans, then surely we will give you the vote…..otherwise stop wasting our time.

    • It’s a complete disgrace that corruption in Zambia is taken so lightly. Because if it’s true that Lungu suddenly has money that he can’t explain where it came from, that’s not a matter to be taken lightly, when people in the country are suffering. Do politicians declare their assets at the beginning of their service? Please, let’s be serious. Let’s not play games. If a leader has wealthy whose source he can’t explain, he should be fully and seriously investigated, and if found wanting, should be sent to prison. Corruption should not be tolerated in any way shape or form. It’s what’s holding Africa back, while the rest of the world is moving forward. Any politician who takes advantage of their office to enrich themselves, should be considered a criminal, an enemy of the people,…

  3. UPND just live with the fact that you have picked a wrong running mate. GBM will be convicted soon for some of the pending cases, what will happen. Mind you GBMs ‘papers’ are being scrutinised by OP. If found fake who will you blame? Lungu or HH ? GBM was in a govt that was famous for u-turn policies, GBM himself used to make a list of suppliers to supply defence and even fired Gen Sakala head of ZAF logistics for refusing to flout tender procedures. If HH had chosen anyone else other than GBM we would have voted for him but for this corrupt 300Kg illiterate fool who even HH himself once called ‘a moron from Intercity’ today HH is convinced that GBM having a PhD is more educated than him !!!

  4. GBM did not see this when he was in PF. Zambians have been power for longer than president Lungu has been is state house. Jobs lost during privatization were HH benefited can not be compared with today’s job losses. We are not blind.

  5. People have been suffering for many years and you want to heep the blame on someone who is in office for one year.
    Everybody knows that since 2011 no civil servant has ever gone on strike. Ask teachers the last time they went on strike. These are some of the sontables we talk about.

      Lungu is the cause of the high cost of living in Zed. He borrowed kaloba Eurobonds to steal.

      Why is it that late Sata and Mwanawasa did not make even K5 million during their terms and this mambala steals K13 billion in one year. Abomination!!

      I have said it like it was for FTJ Chiluba: Lungu is lazo, a thief, lisholi, kabolala….a criminal. This disgraced lawyer stole clients money and now he has looted government money.

      I challenge ACC, TIZ, DEC to investigate this thief so that he accounts for his ill gotten wealth. Shameless thief.

  6. Namulambe you are past mpongwe mp, ask yourself what you have done for the people of mpongwe in your last term! That’s why you even failed to re-contest the seat coz people told you that you are a failure and you were going to lose. Is your critism by namulambe, sampa, scott, masebo and gbm genuine mwebantu?? Don’t take zambians for f.o.o.ls, we know that all you guys are fighting for the cartel to remain enjoying! Twakana zambia isn’t for sell to the power hungry monisters!

    • Lungus wealth accumulation doesn’t need rocket science to understand. In 2014 he declared about 10.5m. Of you take into account the exchange rate then you’ll see that it’s only a fraction of increase compared to hh Who in 2015 was worth 38million and now he is at 73.8m minus some hidden assets undeclared.

    • @HH Techilema

      It doesn’t need rocket science; plain simple. Lungu stole or accumulated his wealth through Abuse of office and corruption.

      Don’t bring in the exchange nonsense as a red herring when Lungu does not even hold foreign denominated portfolio. Does a plot quadruple because of exchange rate movement?

      This your Lungu, thief lawyer, has now graduated to a thief president just like Mobuto Seseseko, RB and FTJ Chiluba and other like minded criminals.

      HH declared some K60 million last year and oh who cares since he is in private business unlike this thief of public resources who is abusing the office of President.

  8. Foolish Zambians, wake up. Lungu is a thief who is pretending to be a serious church goer but is a crook where has he got K23 Billion in one year. No president ever made that amount of money. Even RB the master theif in 3 years he only stole US$2 Million but ECL in 1 year he has managed to steal US$3,5 Million. What more in 5 years more time, no wonder the country has no money. This amount is what he declared what about the other amounts he has hidden.
    This guy will spend the rest of his life going to court like FTJ. Shamelss thieves. He can point where he has worked stealing from Zambian people. Foolish

  14. I like what Eric Chanda ( 4th Revolution Party leader) said about all politicians. In case you don’t know, he said all politicians are fools and indeed they are because if you look at the years Namulambe has been in govt, it leaves much to be desired as to why his constituency is not developed as he claims. He has been in MMD and the current PF govt so whom can he cheat. The bottom line is that he is not a performer himself so he must not be voted again. Let another person who is serious take over from him in Mpongwe. Is the seat a personal to holder? The answer is NOOOOOOOOOOoooooO!!!!!

  16. These clowns…!! Leadership is at all levels. You were MPs in your areas and there is constiuency development fund what did you do for your people before even Lungu came? Last development was with Levy Mwanawasa ..yes because he made you Ministers since he came from there! In fact each government has its own priorities why should PF repeat Levy’s strategies when they have identified different priorities in other areas?! You may not vote for Lungu but otherwise will!! GBM talking about the Eurobond when he could even be more of a beneficiary than Lungu given that his businesses depend heavily on government contracts!! The whole lot speaking here is the same poor leadership!

  20. PF has never won the Presidency from the useless LAMBA VOTE. PF knows where the votes are, not in mpongwe, masaiti and lufwanyama including kafulafuta. There are only a few lamba labourers doing peace work for commercial south african farmers in these places while the rest are perennial ilegal fuel vendor selling diesel and petrol along kabwe road . Even if all LAMBAS voted for hakainde, Edgar would still win because lambas are not even 1/1000 of the Zambian population.

    1. Gabriel Namulambe was masaiti council secretary then promoted to PS for Northwestern province, the man stole a lot of money even HIPIC funds
    2. GBM former minister of he got all contracts from Zambia army, ZAF and ZNS
    3. Benard Mpundu former minister, before that he was renting a small 2 bedrooms house in Kasama location area with pvc chairs no kwipikila pa mbabula months later as a minister he bought a farm in mazabuka.
    4. Glads Lundwe former minister HIPIC funds and FISP fund met for farmers
    5. Miles Sampa fromer minister who turned PF into a family party- We shall never go forward as long as these crooks remain in power, UPND is now a mafia led party.

    What can Mwamba say to Zambians except rants that must ensure his veep position; Mwamba was PF.
    What can Namulambe say that does not make him a job seeker- chap has been jumping from party to party.
    What can Gladys Lundwe say that can put her in a better position than a hopeless job seeker.
    I mean who is this Bernard Mpundu claiming to know the sources of ECL’s wealth- if you have proof sue him kaili. In other words, I see no difference in your hopeless rants fellaz. I see no reason to change Government at all at all. We do not need accusing fingers, we need fingers pointing at achievements, don’t you get it fellaz? Point at projects, not other people.

  27. The simple truth is that no matter what UPND do, the fact remains that HH and now worse with GBM, HH can never be a better alternative to the current leadership of Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Even if it were true that the current leadership was poor(which it isnt) and Zambians were looking for an alternative leadership, they know that the alternative can never be HH. Get that into your heads.
