President Lungu Campaigning in Mpika

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu described as total falsehood claims by Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) that he was pivotal in the formation and founding of the Patriotic Front (PF) led by late President Michael Sata.

According to a statement issued to Daily Nation by Patriotic Front information committee member Sunday Chanda, President Lungu cautioned the people of Northern Province not to fall for Mr Mwamba’s claim that he was popular and could deliver development in Northern Province.

“Uyu ale mi bepa ati ewa chitile fund party,” President Lungu said, “ale mibepa. The people that were at the formation of the party are people like Mr Samuel Mukupa, Mr Chishimba Kambwili not uyu…he is a liar and carries no clout.”

“Do not be cheated by Mwamba and his self-perceived importance and claims that he helped fund PF…he is nothing but a liar who was not even there at the formation of the party.”
President Lungu said in 2001 Mr Mwamba was still “stewing” in hate for having been convincingly whacked by Agriculture minister Given Lubinda when he first contested the Kabwata parliamentary seat, despite having heavily funded the lost campaign.

He said the PF later on, through President Sata, took pity on Mr Mwamba and campaigned for him to run in Kasama where he, for the first time, became a Member of Parliament due to the popularity of President Sata.

President Lungu, who in the past has questioned UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s judgment to appoint Mr Mwamba as a running due to his documented history of violence against his wife Chama, sister-in-law and workers also took time to root for his running mate Ms Inonge Wina.

“I am confident that if anything happened to me, Ms Wina would be a great President because she is not very different from me,” President Lungu said, “batila ichikwanka bachimwena kuma mpalanya (meaning you can tell a person by the company he or she keeps.”

And Kasama Central aspiring candidate Kelvin Sampa said women voters must think twice before voting for Mwamba because “a vote for Mr Mwamba is effectively endorsing violence.

Mr Mwamba’s history of violence, beating up his wife including his wife’s sister is a well-documented fact. It is something I would not endorse if I were a Zambian woman.”

President Lungu wound up his Mungwi rally by promising more development for the area in return for the Northern Province continued unwavering support.
“It is an undeniable fact that your support ought to be rewarded,” he said.

President Lungu later held another rally at Kasama’s Gold Club that got filled to capacity after scares that the Independence Square would not hold the heavy crowd without possible casualties.

First Lady Esther Lungu, who accompanied the President, told the ecstatic crowd that her husband would appoint skilled people with disabilities to his Government once re-elected.

    • Yes infact DeadNBC sometimes are ashamed to show the crowds for PF in certain areas whereby they only show the speaker. Its really hard for PF this time because even those that attend I believe they are just promised food or money.

    • Extract from Postzambia.com Story, Lungu’s day of prayer flops

      Ironically, President Lungu, his finance minister Alexander Chikwanda, Katuba PF candidate Jonas Shakafuswa and others quickly started dozing even before the National House of Prayer advisory board chairperson Bishop Joshua Banda finished reading the short list of dignitaries present in his salutation.

      Media-happy ex-priest Frank Bwalya, who is now PF deputy campaign manager, was not to be left out of the dozing irony as he joined the tired VIP officials in the shutting eyes exercise that coincided with the church programme.

      The dozing officials occasionally opened their eyes to the sound of the clapping supporters, but quickly retreated to slumberland when the clapping died down.

      For the moments when President…

    • Chakolwa was not there when PF was formed or during its early days. He knows nothing about that party’s history because he is an interloper, a hijacker. Even Miles Sampa has talked about how he had to donate an old LandCruiser for Sata to use. Chakolwa should be decent enough to acknowledge that he came to PF when all was ready and done. People like GBM, Guy Scott and Miles Sampa have better credentials in the origins of PF.

    • But when Sata formed government, he gave the most “sensitive” ministerial position to GBM, defence. No wonder even ECL delayed to let go until he gave it to a yes man kind of guy he can control 24/7.

    • Do not be bothered. An average Zambian worker works less than an hour. Rest of the time, he criss crosses internet, gossips, takes two hours lunch break, spends more than 45 minutes a day on sipping tea-4-5 times a day, using office phones to sell and collect money for his personal business and rest of the time begging, more begging and more begging for funerals, kitchen parties, as if the deceased was a relative of everybody and the would-be bride will be a common property of every contributor.
      Let these kaponyas be on the roads, in rallies and grocery stores than in offices. When HH takes over, these kaponyas will be shown the doors to their villages to go and plough the land and live happily everafter!

    • I guess ECL had black outs half the time the PF was in opposition … if GBM didnt spend anything how else does he explain the PFs headquarters being hosted at GBM offices … I guess in his poor Kaloba financial reasoning that is not an expense or a cost to GBM … to help you Chagwa just calculate the rental the party could have been paying for all that time …

It is unacceptable to be having nega nega 18, 000 and Lungu 0 Hmmmmmmmmmm olo ni tribalism nifi sure. So it means even the PF officials of nega nega voted against their own party, no way. This time around, it’s nega nega formula all the way, we will show them and umo akalila, Northen , Luapula, Muchinga, Eastern it’s nega nega formula all the way, the rest we shall also use naga nega kabili tubibengi ifwe ,,, umo akanya kikikikikiki

    • It was Sata himself who made that statement when his and wife’s vehicles were taken away by the ACC.

      Sata produced a bank statement that showed $100,000 transferred from GBMs Finance Bank account to Sata’s personal account. The issue was all over.

      According to Sata, GBM bought the vehicles Sata used in his campaigns.

  9. “It is an undeniable fact that your support ought to be rewarded,” – you need to take this message to all your strongholds and apologise for having neglected some of the areas where you have your strongest support in pursuit of acceptance in areas which harbor politics of ethnicity and regionalism. Just do so and tell your campaign teams on the ground to explain your way out! Part of the apathy from PF strongholds was that they could not vote UPND but had been let down by PF for not doing what they had promised!

  10. n the Bible, the number 6 symbolizes man and human weakness, the evils of Satan and the manifestation of sin. Man was created on the sixth day. Men are appointed 6 days to labor.

    A Hebrew slave was to serve six years and be released in the 7th year. Six years were appointed for the land to be sown and harvested. The number 6 is also associated with Satan in his temptation of Jesus.
    LET US QUICKLY USHER IN THE 7TH PRESIDENT IN ZAMBIA.GOD OUT OF HIS MERCY MADE OUR SIXTH PRESIDENT TO SERVE A SHORT TERM SO THAT OUR SUFFERING IS NOT PROLONGED.

    • @ Tolilo, the name of the 7th ( complete ) president for this Christian Nation has to be HH as can be derived from the tetragram name of God, YHWH.

      On shortest reign, arguably the weakest Zambian National Team became the shortest reigning Africa cup champions in 2012 from the very land, Garbon, which the devil killed our stronger national team in 1993.

      All these events speak volumes about man’s weak standpoint to archive his goals against God’s divine ways of fulfilling His plans.

      Man can talk or do anything but God’s will always prevail for this Christian Nation.

  11. The important thing is to give a message to the voters. The past is gone and voters want plans for the future. The economy is broken so what will Lungu do to fix it? Well HH has a Ten Point Plan so lets give him a chance to implement it and if he fails to change our lives we vote him out. Lungu has failed so we have no choice but to try HH. Continuing with the violent and visionless Lungu is like committing suicide. Forward with HH,GBM and UPND.

So if GBM funded the party which he joined later no body forced him to do so actually he was not the only one who did that others contributed in other ways money is not everything. Umunweumo tausalenda, you can only achieve something when you get together.

    • You lie my friend. The Post must have gone to the wrong address. The National Prayers I attended on Sunday 24 July @ the Show Grounds were awesome, lively & Holy Spirit filled. We prayed, praised & worshiped with the President that even God manifested Himself. The pictures are there for you to see. Your idea of flop is laughable. This event was far more successful than the LAZ event which only had a handful of people with the climax being a set of speeches. Let me disappoint you & the Post further; God LOVES Zambia & his has been hearing our prayers; God will not allow you to put Zambia on fire; God has already answered our prayers & God is Blessing Zambia!

  17. Mr. Lungu is that saddest episode of Zambia politics. No style, No message and No quality! Zambia we can do better! Who is GBM for Mr. Lungu to be spending time on the campaign trail on? Doesn’t the President take his plans for the country, his governing strategy and his competitive advantage to the people? Mr. Lungu you are very petty and a wasted opportunity for our republic to properly organize itself to reap the benefits of the global economy. Whoever is gathering those poor people for you to spend time talking about GBM instead of serious problems and solutions for Zambia can find something better to do with their lives. If GBM did not contribute anything to the PF he has left, Mr Lungu what is your problem? If you were a major PF contributor what were your contributions? How come…

    Hichilema to Zambia: “You should thank me for stealing from you”
    27th July 2016 Disclosure
    The perennial presidential candidate in Zambia, Hakainde Hichilema has built his fortune on fraud and corruption. He stole from the Zambian people. HH defrauded Zambians by giving state-owned Mosi-oa-Tunya hotel to himself. He took Agriflora’s money by putting the company into receivership and appointed himself as liquidator. HH wants to be president not because he wants to help anyone. He wants to be president because it would allow him to steal some more. His candidacy is an insult to the Zambian people.

    • An outrageous and insulting candidacy

      “You should thank me for stealing from you”, this is what Hichilema is telling Zambians when asked about the money he acquired from privatisation. “Are people not proud that there is Sun Hotels? Are people not happy that there is Royal Livingstone and Zambezi Sun?” – Hichilema shamelessly asked during a radio address on 19 January 2015.

      Instead of apologizing, Hichilema chose to insult Zambians. After stealing some of the country’s most valuable enterprises, after selling Zambia’s hotels, banks and mines, after forcing Zambians into poverty, Hakainde Hichilema is asking people to be grateful for his wealth and vote for him in the presidential election. HH candidacy seems like a slap in the face to the Zambian people.

  20. Due to Hichilema’s management of privatisation, Zambians lost at least 15 million dollars. Not only that the hotel was sold very cheaply, but Sun International received all kinds of concessions which all other investors were not given.

    The $15 million entered into Hichilema’s pocket. HH chose the lowest bid because he negotiated the sale of the state-owned hotel with himself. Although he failed to declare conflict of interests, HH was the owner of the Sun International Ltd at the moment of the sale. Hichilema was entrusted to sell a valuable property belonging to Zambian people. He defrauded Zambians by giving their property to himself.

    HH took Agriflora’s money

    On 22 June 2004, Hichilema decided to put Agriflora under receivership. Agriflora, Zambia’s largest exporter of…

    • exporter of vegetables and flowers, defaulted on a $16 million debt to Barclays Bank. The management of the agricultural company tried to ask for time to revive and pay back the loan, but the bank’s Board of Directors refused. The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Barclays Bank Zambia Plc was Hakainde Hichilema.

      After forcing Agriflora into receivership, Hichilema appointed a liquidator to the company. Without declaring interest, Hichilema assigned his own firm, Grant Thornton, to liquidate Agriflora. As revealed by zambiaawakens (link), thousands lost their jobs after Grant Thornton decided to close Agriflora. It was Hakainde Hichilema who profited from the Agriflora collapse. And he did it twice: first as Barclay Bank chairman and second as Grant Thornton owner.

He tried in pf but because they were alert his plan was unearthed that is why he quickly resigned…. the so called moral resignation. Gbm can not join miles’ or kabimba’s party because he does not have the petience to do so. Dont forget he is a tenderprenur. So it is very true that gbm was not there when the party started and reached its maturity level. During the rally his Excellence touched various issues and one of them rabbishing what gbm had been spreading in his campaign trial. Yes he spent money which he recvered when he became defence minister. Arizona trasports were the only ones transporting…

    His bet is to get the bemba speaking votes, next week he will try to capture Copperbelt for more Bemba speaking voters.
    So do you calculations the decider is Copperbelt and Lusaka Province.
    So this only leaves one option, ECL is going to rig because he knows he will not win the first round, or maybe even the elections.
