GBM and Nevers Mumba hit Northern Province for UPND Campaign

General News GBM and Nevers Mumba hit Northern Province for UPND Campaign

GBM AND NEVERS ARRIVING AT TWAPIA RALLY
GBM AND NEVERS ARRIVING AT TWAPIA RALLY

UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and MMD President Nevers Mumba have resumed the Northern Province leg of their joint cross-country campaigns disrupted last week by a combined team of police and the Zambia Air Force Commander who ordered them to leave the province at short notice due to President Lungu’s anticipated visit to Kasama.

Featuring as guests on Radio Mano Community radio station this morning, Mr. Mwamba challenged the PF’s cost of road construction which they are budgeting at over US$ 1,000,000.00 (one million United States Dollars) per kilometre when the regional average is only US$ 550,000.00 per kilometre. He wondered where the balance is going to. It was US$ 470,000.00 per kilometre during the MMD regime.

The PF government have abandoned their much celebrated original vision of ‘More money in your pocket; More Jobs; Lower taxes’ in preference for ‘massive infrastructure development’ of roads, schools, clinics, government office blocks, etc which was in fact an MMD budget-controlled strategy introduced in 2009, which they have now highjacked due to the lucrative personal financial benefits accruing into personal pockets of known senior PF leaders who have ‘shared’ these projects.

It is believed that this was the main reason why the Road Development Agency’s functions were moved and are now at State House despite relentless criticism from civil society. This reckless approach has attracted alarm and concern from the World Bank and IMF who earlier this year advised President Lungu to suspend these projects as the uncontrolled expenditure was regarded as the main cause for the poor performance of the economy, characterised by the depletion of foreign reserves, the rapid deterioration of the dollar/kwacha exchange rate and the ever increasing prices of food and other basic commodities.

Dr. Nevers Mumba challenged the members of the clergy surrounding President Lungu to be courageous and always be honest with him to stop mocking God by calling for prayers when he is the same person presiding over a police force which is harrassing, intimidating and killing members of the opposition. He further cautioned them not to fall into the trap that a group of Ndola pastors who surrounded late President Chiluba (may his sould rest in peace) fell in and failed to tell him the truth but ended up deceiving him about the ‘Third Term debate,’ which left an indelible blight on his otherwise brilliant presidency under which the current successful liberalized economy, democratic dispensation and declaration of Zambia as Christian Nation were introduced.

  1. Even Obama changed yes we can slogan in the second term. You cant have one slogan for 2 terms. Nevers mumba is the one who is misleading himself by claiming to be MMD president when infact not. Secondly he is misleading hh by not telling him to go for a convention since 2006.

    • @Mj banda, I discussing Lusaka here. Why should we stop talking about them? They are our concern – the future leaders.

    • ‘It was US$ 470,000.00 per kilometre during the MMD regime’…………..lies, lies, lies, lies. It was the same even when MMD was in power. GBM should stop telling lies, our memory is not as poor as his. RB (when he was still president of Zambia) is the one who raised this issue when he visited Egypt and was told that to build a kilometre in Egypt costs $500,000………… that’s what led him to question why it was costing $1,000,000 to build a road in Zambia. It was the same even under the MMD regime. Stop telling lies!

    • Obama changed his slogan from yes we can, to what?
      Nevers Mumba cannot tell HH to go to the convention. Mumba is not a member of upnd. He is not upnd presidential advisor.

    • PF came into political limelight on the basis of being pro-poor; and what they have done is nothing but to make the poor much poorer. Some of the effects of PF have been increased cost of living (doubling of inflation), this has effectively halved the value of the money in people’s pockets. PF is pro-corruption and deceptive at all levels.

    • I really don’t get why UPND is so fixated on criticizing the ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE (and Infrastructure development in general) that the PF, more than any Govt before it, has embarked on. First of all, how do people like GBM and Mumba hope to GROW our Country’s ECONOMY without improved or new Infrastructure like roads?

      To me there is a difference between GROWING and MANAGING an economy. And the things Govt focuses on is what tells/makes the difference. And at the apex of that process is the President as the Country’s CEO to drive his vision. But, just like in the cooperate world, not everybody is cut out to be a CEO. Some people were meant to be very good Managers and there is nothing wrong with that. Nonetheless, it takes a VISIONARY CEO to grow a business or corporation. So we need…

    • Continue…

      …a President who thinks and looks at the Country’s economy/challenges like a CEO and not a MANAGER. Unfortunately, UPND always seem to talk like Managers and not CEO’s when it comes to the Zambian economy—wasting time on matters that can only make the economy look like it is healthy but with very minimal prospects for a BROAD BASED ECONOMIC EXPANSION in the long term.

      This is what MMD did so well during their tenure in Govt, managing the economy, and forgot about doing things that grow and expand the economy. They acted like the Country (Zambia) is FROZEN IN PLACE and there is no tomorrow—and the result is a scanty record on Infrastructure which MMD can today proudly point to as their accomplishment—but PF has a different attitude and vision towards this issue…

    • Yambayamba

      When you are charged $1million/km instead of $550000 there is a difference, can you not tell ??

    • “…on Radio Mano Community radio station this morning, Mr. Mwamba challenged the PF’s cost of road construction which they are budgeting at over US$ 1,000,000.00 (one million United States Dollars) per kilometre when the regional average is only US$ 550,000.00 per kilometre”
      GBM LET ME SIMPLIFIED FOR YOU AS GOING INTO ENGINEERING JARGON WILL JUST CONFUSE YOU. 1. REAL CONSTRUCTION OF ROADS IN ZAMBIA JUST STARTED WIT VERY FEW FOREIGN COMPANIES WHO SHIPPED EVERY CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT FROM OVERSEAS, 2. AS THERE ARE ONLY FEW ROAD CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES IN ZAMBIA TENDERS ARE NOT COMPETITIVE, 3. THERE ARE NO MANUFACTURING COMPANIES IN ZAMBIA FOR CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY, TOOLS AND MATERIALS- THEY ALL HAVE TO IMPORTED FROM CHINA, ETC.

    • Shame on Zambia for allowing a Brut with documented abuse of women to stand as Veep. GBM should be in prison not on the campaign trail. All Zambian women should stand up and refuse this injustice. GBM’s wife has Stockholm syndrome, she will never testify against her Brut.

    • GBM AND NEVERS CANNOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY ANY RIGHT THINKING ZAMBIAN BECAUSE THE ONLY REASON THEY HAVE TEAMED UP WITH HH IS NOT BECAUSE OF ANY POLICY DIFFERENCES WITH THEIR FORMER PARTIES NAMELY PF AND MMD BUT BECAUSE THEIR FRUSTRATED EGOS.
      GBM WAS NOT ELECTED PF PRESIDENT AND NEVERS WAS REJECTED BY MMD.
      GBM SHOULD TALK ABOUT HIS DEALS WHEN HE WAS MINISTER OF DEFENCE AND AS FOR NEVERS HE IS A SELF-CENTERED FAKE “MAN OF GOD”.
      THEY ARE SHAMELESS!!

    • @Spaka…

      This is what so worrying about UPNP cadres. You have a tendency of supporting anything and everything your “shallow” Party leaders/officials say without your own INDEPENDENT THOUGHT or ANALYSIS of issues. Just throwing around these numbers without really stating the actual factors they are based on can only be compared to what is known as COOKING THE NUMBERS in the corporate world. And such arguments are equivalent to engaging in a game of SHADOW BOXING where the whole endeavour is not about reality.

      @Splaka…, even within Zambia itself, you can NOT surely tell me that building a house in Lusaka costs the same as building a similar house in Kasama (GBM’s home town.) Or should we expect the same house to cost the same Livingstone as it does in the Copperbelt. If you…

    • Cotinue…

      If you can’t understand even such simple economics, why should Zambians risk entrusting the economy of our Country to you empty tins?

      Read @Peter has said for you to understand why roads cost more to build in Zambia than say in RSA. STOP BEING SO SIMPLISTIC WHEN DISCUSSING SUCH ISSUES, YOU ARE EMBARRASSING YOURSELVES—and you are supposedly a Party of educated people!

    • Yambayamba

      Zambian roads are the most expensive in the region if not Africa. Only Angola and Nigeria have roads costing close to $1 million /km and those are proper roads.

      you can not fool us ati because machinery was imported, it was also imported in Malawi, Zimbabwe, Rwanda to mention a few but those countries are cheaper in road construction.

      Every one knows that 1 million dollar/km is based on corruption and nothing to do with importing machinery.

  2. Failed tribalists…gbv and Mumba! Not happy with how Lungu was welcomed by northerners…! Tribalism is stinking in upnd…! Meanwhile kalusa is in bantubotatwe region campaigning..! My vote on pf…!

    • Mumba say PF are stealing our money by charging zambia $1million instead of $550000 per Km of roads constructed, any comment ??

    • Alice u must be a useless tonga idi.ot 2 vote for the unpd. Ukalusa pamo na hh. Wasted vote. Fintu ni Lungu. Even Great Kalu has endorsed Lungu. Bola naikosa kuli kalusa hh. Am convinced now that Lungu is the chosen one. hh born to die in opposition

  3. Kiki the chaps think they can sell us to Kalusa HH.We can’t vote for a tribal party UPND.ba Nevers and GBM bawelewelefye.Twakana ku Lubemba.We can’t be bought .UPND pipo insulted ba Sata.They wanted him dead but how can they come and tell us to vote for UPND?HH told us that Sata is cimbwe no plan but now they want a vision of ba Sata.Ci GBM n Nevers fake pastor are desparate.Ifwe ku lubemba ni PF.Tulesonta again.

    • @Moscow (Op) walasa boi these tongas they even celebrated on the death Michael Chilufya Sata the whole southern province celebrated can you imagine that. And today they are busy yapping ati fyototo fyototo

    • Yeah. We cannot vote tribalism. Neither should we vote by cipantepante. All systems in Zambia are dead. Nothing public works. The country is in autopilot with the cockpit open to hyperactive kindergarten kids.

      If the party carders can take control of ensuring the security of a sitting President, know that either the pilot is dead drunk or he fainted somewhere.Now, seriously, how do we live with ourselves when lawlessness seems to be the order of the da? We gotta hide our faces in shame.

    • Fiba tonga fyaliba bitter kwati fyalipena. I hav never seen bitter and selfish idi.ots like Tongas. Very tribal fuz. But many of these Tongas will die of bp as kalusa hh is bitten clear in round 1 on 11th August. Umotonga temunobe. Very bad hearted pipo. May the humble Lungu win. We cant afford to hav bitter Tongas in plot 1 coz other tribes will suffer at the hands of these selfish idi.ots

    • You would be correct if only SP were the ones who only vote for HH. And by the way your hegemonistic apartheid diatribe against the Tongas does not go well with those of us who are non Bembas. If you can do it to the Tongas next you will turn your hatred and apartheid on Lozis, Chokwes, Mbundas, etc.

      Even if the Tongas don’t vote for HH, we shall vote for him!! Watch how the provinces will vote on 11 August 2016 and see whether on percentage basis we non Southerners wont beat them in ushering HH into Plot 1.

      Aliye bakuluna luvotela bomutompeli HH. Zwa PF masholi ni Lungu lisholi.

  4. These morons are confused.Ignore them gbv is well known in Kasama a sarcatisic fat albert chap who only wants to be fat, rich alone, just like lucifer mumba the specialist in party destruction, brought confusions in PF and failed to run his own party.Nevertheless his excellence imbecile moron icilema has auctioned his upAndOWN to these bembas,UpAndOWN wont be the same after the elections.VIVA the SPIRIT of SATA, VIVA PF.gbv and lucifer mumba mwaloba ilyauma, bakamitamfy a nge mbwa shalya amani.

  5. PF kaponyas bloggers , PF are stealing from poor zambians by over charging for roads @ $1 million/km. While the majority of zambians wallows in abject poverty.

    Any comments ? Or is that normal behaviour for PF ??

    • To all undecided voters who read LT online you can see for your self what PF are if you vote for them. Stealing from the poor zambian nation is normal to them.

      You can even see from their on line supporters who think this stealing charging zambians $1million/km is nothing and normal way of life to be supported.

      When we say they are all theives and zambia deserves better this is what we mean.

    • All those championing for a return of PF after 11th Aug. are either pf cadre diplomats or relatives to the rotten regime back home dotted all over the world. There are terrified having to be recalled back home should UPND take over, being fully aware how torrid it is to kick start yourself once up there because just for a start, putting food for the family on the table is big handle.

      Any right thinking person, even if you are a hard core tribalist or simply duft wouldn’t torelent the chipatepate party, they simply do not have an agenda for the people of Zambia-just take time to listen to one of Chagwa’s so called mega rallies, u will understand where am coming from. Many still supporting the failed regime are either benefiting from it directly or indirectly.

    • Your UPND national leaders have no better alternative to what PF is doing. All they harbour is grudge a d hatred. Zambians are benefiting from the infrastructure PF is putting up. GBM should gives us what he thinks is the estimate for the road per KM and Pastor Mumba should explain why the costs were equally high under MM.

      Your baseless campaigns are mere waste of money, Zambians know who has a heart for them. Your UPND leaders are there for their companies to make money. Whom are you trying to cheat. It is all business for you.

    • Asigi

      Not every party is about stealing like PF.
      We know to you PF stealing is normal and is part of the job……

  6. HH has damaged UPND with his desperation for power. If he doesn’t win then he is finished and so are boastiful GBM and Lucifer Mumba. The Nkombos and Mwiimbus are really cheesed off with ka HH.

    • Imagine unpd having a face of PF ie gbm, muzungu opusa, Sampa etc. Where are the real upnd eg mwiimbu, mweetwa?? Hh is too desperate and confused. Real PF is better than upnd which is trying to be PF

  7. THIS IS NOT TRUE THE REAL ROAD IS EXPESIVE NOT UPND’s ROADS AS U THINK
    GO GO PF TULEIPAYA FUTI IMBWA UPND

  8. What a bunch of losers together

    GBV and Nevers the man of God who loves money (mamon) such will always be shammed in the sight of God amen!!!!

    No wonder they havent put up pictures of their rallies only GBV’s relatives from South Africa attended.

  9. To all undecided voters who read LT online you can see for your self what PF are if you vote for them. Stealing from the poor zambian nation is normal to them.

    You can even see from their on line supporters who think this stealing charging zambians $1million/km is nothing and a normal way of life to be supported.

    When we say they are all theives and zambia deserves better this is what we mean.

  10. Eekwena mwalitumpa imwe ba mumpuwelwa amafumo nge nsenshi basulamika mumikatile pamo nobe Nefasi wasompa akanwa ngatondo. mwati ama Northerners,muchingas, luapulas are for sale mwabawelewelemwe! ‘ala takalaba mwebwa lelo kalaba uwakasosele’ Sata wesu aya nensele mpaka na munshinshi elo mwise tila ifwe tuvotele satana wenu? awe mwasebana esebana wikute basosa. kwena muli ba chitongo mwashala kumulonga. Nipa 11th August, 2016 ninshi umo alukusha ifilamba.

    • Talk about post-Lungu PF. After August 11, PF will go into oblivion. The kingpins of the party, the pillars on which PF was supported, have left. Abashele ni ba kandile.

      When UPND takes over, law and order will be restored. Then we can walk with our heads high.

  11. It is so disappointing to see the man of God, Dr Nevers Mumba, stand side by side with a wife beater and happily campaign. What does this say about the Dr’s morals. GBM not only beat his wife but her sister and his workers as well. This is a question that should be put to both Mumba d Guy Scott.

  12. Sausande nevers should be Godly enough and tell hh to go for a convention. He does not need to be a presidential adviser. Wrong is wrong you dont need to be in position of power to say it

  13. Keep on ranting gbm!!we have already voted for PF and ECL in 2016!!SEEING IS BELIEVING SO WE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF GOOD THINGS UNDER PF GOVNT!!bola naikosa ba opposition!!go pf go!!

    • Fintu ni Lungu zoona. Lungu awabako. Its Lunguz time. Let hh wait for his time if it will ever come. Even Kalusha Bwalya alesapota Lungu. Bola naikosa kuli kalusa hh

  14. I think you guis you are educated look our country mather zambia is surfaling recently sugar was on k9 1KG now k14 salad 700mils was on k10 now is on k 17 bread was on k 3,50 now is on k 8. what more 2021 ret us protect our country tribelism will never us any way thax

    • Ba Lavensio. Study the World trends naimwe in prices. In RSA 2ltr coke was R15 now its R28, bread was R5.5 now it is R14, fuel was R9.8 now it is R13/lr. Even yourself last year you were a year younger than now. The World is not static and ask economists about Time Value of Money they will explain to you. Dont just make noise

  15. WHERE ARE THE COURAGEOUS PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA TO CHALLEGNE MR. LUNGU WHERE HE GOT SO RIGH IN 0NE YEAR? IT COULD BE TRUE THAT ITS THESE ROAD CONCRACTS THAT HAVE MADE THESE PEOPLE SO RICH.

    MOST OF THE ‘SENIOR’ PF MINISTERS ARE NOT EVEN CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR JOBS ANYMORE. THEY HAVE MADE ENOUGH AND ARE NOW JUST FRUSTRATING ECL SO THAT HE LOSES FOR ADOPTING INONGE WINA AS RUNNING MATE WHOM THEY DID NOT SUPPORT. PF IS CRACKING.

  16. THEY WOUND THEIR NORTHERN CAMPAIGN SOME TIME BACK….LOOKS LIKE ECL RALLIES HAS CHOKED THESE MORONS……. Are they going to call courtesy calls again on their royal highnesses “again once mor the second time”

  17. 1. Nevers Mumba is no longer president of MMD, by court order and also you can see that he now acknowledges this by raising the UPND symbol.
    2. Please UPND find an official title for Nevers, even chief defector or third vice president will do for him.
    3. Tell GBM and Nevers that we in northern province know whom we want to continue leading us, They should not waste their time and money because come 8/11 they will be broke and remember my words, and there will no tenders for them too. And HH will remain rich because he uses GBM’s money, clever crook that one, ati my running mate should be one who is willing to spend his money on my campaigns while i bank mine…..kikikikikiki….8/11 yapalama ba yama!

  18. We northerners find GBM and Nevers Mumba ridiculous and stui.piod for looking more UPND than the owners of the party the chuundus. No vote here GBM, go campaign in chuundu county you may get get two more votes for HH there from a few undecided voters in choma. Here in northern circuit ni Lungu chabe.

  19. Guys waste your time arguing with Tongas,God will show them that HIS ways are not like that of a man.the very lungu you hate will be your president upto 2021,big brain analyze situations, small brain criticise situations.

  20. @Rafael britton … why are you tribal ? Lets be real and not show your stupidity in public …..nyonyonyo Tonga every time does one choose a tribe to be born in . You are a big fool and a disgrace to the Zambia Motto of One Zambia one Nation. Your kind should be castrated to ensure our future in not polluted with your offspring’s …. next time don’t hide behind the computer to promote your disgusting stupidity.

  21. no need for moderation LT why did you allow the comments of Rafael britton in the first place . he is the worst tribalist and we need to tell them off .

  22. Why should RDA supervise their works from state house and not Ministry of works and supply?? is there any sharing of spoils with the inflated of price per kilometer?? More Money in the pockets!!

  23. Kikikikikikikikikikiki……. ba HH nabo na ma cadre yabo……losers all the time always ever…..nga ulefwaya ukuteka Zambia ulepepa ku ka national prayer day like your Cannissius who deserved RM over that hulk with a small brain typical of upnd cadres.

  24. Ba Nevers Mumba, you dissolved your Party a day before you became the Vice President, remember? Where have your morals and integrity principles that you were demanding from other Leaders like former presidents KK and FTJ gone? You were among those that believed prayer changed situations; what has happened now that you can’t believe in prayer? It is not the righteous ones like you that can ask for prayers, it is the sinners like Mr E C Lungu and I. If you refuse to pray for us, sinners, you should NOT think that our requests for prayers are mockery of God. Please spend few of your time re-reading the Bible; despite having them gathering dust on your floors. It saddens me that I have to say such things against God’s anointed. May the good Lord bring you back into His fold. I believe you…
