The opposition UPND has defended its recently launched Operation watermelon after President Edgar Lungu described it as an evil plan aimed at causing havoc in the nation.

UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka has also denied accusations that the party has a plan in place called Operation Fear, which will unleash violence and fear on voters, are absurd.

According to the Times of Zambia of Tuesday, August 2nd 2016, the UPND will use Operation Fear to unleash a wave of violence and fear on voters ahead of next Thursday’s polls.

But Mr Katuka said such kind of reporting without any reference to facts is extremely irresponsible and only supports PF attempts to create a climate of fear and intimidation ahead of polls.

“It is under the PF that innocent citizens have been shot down by police with no justice, it is under the PF that unarmed civilians have been kicked in the head outside police stations with no one arrested, and it is the PF President himself who took power of his party through a conference decided by pangas rather than policy,” Mr Katuka said.

He said the PF should know that the only operation UPND has active is Operation Watermelon.

“This Operation is 100% peaceful and designed to offer our supporters protection by wearing PF regalia but voting UPND. They need not fear because their vote is their choice and their vote is secret,” Mr Katuka said in a statement.

“We would like to remind voters that as we get closer to elections the PF is desperate to talk only of tribalism and violence because they are not comfortable talking about policy issues such as unemployment and the rising cost of living.”

He added, “I would like to restate here for the record that UPND completely rejects these accusations. Whoever is peddling them is behaving with little regard for the peace and unity of our country. We want change but it will come through ballots not bullets.”

  1. Liars. We have already witnessed your evil traits and your violence. You are under the chief Gender Based Molester (GBM) so you can’t lie to the masses!

    • Peaceful Zambians let’s all rise and say not to this fake party UPND a satamic cult of cannibalists, sexual preditors, wife batterers and Boer thugs who are bent on causing havoc, mayhem, Armageddon and destruction.

      Rise early and cast your vote next week. Vote for the Peaceful Friends (PF) who are Politically Fit (PF) to run the country. Don’t vote for these Under-5 clowns led by people with Hidden Hagenda (HH) popularly known as perpetual loser or Kalusa.

    • No one shall be allowed to turn our country in a failed state and freely burn it at will. Freedom in a democracy is not absolute to condone acts of despondency. Mukobeko has more than enough space for any insurgent while Zambia rivers have enough hungry crockdiles to feast on those wanting to die of shame after ballot rejection. Zambia has to move on beyond campaign rhetorics. Those who have contracted foreign debts on hope of trading off Zambia in hope of winning, they better get to renegotiate how to retire their debts with mercenaries firms outside elusive power. Zambia is not for mortgaging.

    • COUNT YOUR DAYS IWE KOSWE CHAGWA ule mona kwati wa latu tinyi te???

      JUST DRINK AS MUCH AS YOU CAN NYA, becoz when you are locked up, uka la nwa fye ifimenshi wa unfwa!!

      KUDOS, na iwe tu ka kulongela kumo , elo uka le pipa chagwa obe!!!

      VOTE WISELY 11/8/2016!! VOTE ZAMBIA FORWARD!! VOTE UPND!! Abantu baya!!

      #MURDERERCHAGWAmustfall!! #PamaFikuyabebele!!

      I thank you!!

    • One wonders who you really are? I was about to vote for the Peaceful Friends and then I saw the picture you are using! Scares the hell out of me! And I bet I am not the only one! Mfiti iyo!!!!

    • Its remarkable that UPND have interpreted don’t kubeba in a very novel way!
      Why are people jittery? Operation Watermelon is a practical don’t kubeba period.

    • HH’s fear of Edgar Chagwa Lungu is that since coming to power in 2011 PF has upset the existing neo-colonial order in Zambia. HH, Guy and Sampa have a vested interest in maintaining the old order where ordinary Zambian businessmen are relegated to owning grocery stalls & seen nowhere near grand contracts. HH should stop fooling himself, Zambia’s poor are also having a debate about their future – the verdict will be loud and clear on 11th August, 2016.

    • It’s a pity that the noisiest Zambians on social media are either in Lusaka or abroad. They have NO IDEA about what’s going on in Zambia. Project Sontapo will win the day on 11th August, 2016!

    • 9 days to go…Thereafter no HH, no GBV, no UPND. Peace shall prevail again in our beloved mother land!

    • What’s wrong with a watermelon??? PF is now afraid of eating watermelons because they red inside and green outside! I Remember how Frank bwalya scared RB with the red colour, such he shocked everyone at the kuomboka by coming with a white baret

    • No more Watermelons on the menu at State House because each time the president sees them, his BP shots up at at a speed of a Concorde!!

      Eishii uyu mwana Changwa azonda HH maningiii!!

    • EVERYONE KNOWS IT THAT IT IS ONLY THE PF PARTY WHICH IS VIOLENT AND INTOLERANT. LUNGU IS THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN OUR COUNTRY, AND I PRAY THE LAST TOO, TO HAVE INTRODUCED VIOLENCE AND MURDERERS DURING POLITICAL DISPENSATIONS. LUNGU’S HANDS ARE DRIPPING WITH INNOCENT BLOOD. LUNGU AND PF ARE A BIG THREAT TO ZAMBIA’S PEACE. WE ALL NEED TO STAND UP AND VOTE FOR CHANGE. VOTE FOR HH AND THE UPND TEAM.

    • KUDOS YOU SOUND LIKE A THUG ! JUST LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE PICTURE – A SKULL!!!! LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE THE CANNABILISTIC, SATANIC ONE !!!!

  2. Goodbye HH. Never again. We wish all the best in your future endevours.
    This is not the end of life. You have so much cattle to take care of. These cows need you.

    • Are you leaving the country after HH wins???? No need for these bye bye you can live with all of us in the new era

    • Can’t imagine how desperate an opposition political party can be. Never in the history of world politics have I ever come across such foolishness. A foolish plan designed to create confusion and chaos and the SG is proudly supporting it.

  3. HH’s fear of Edgar Chagwa Lungu is that since coming to power in 2011 PF has upset the existing neo-colonial order in Zambia. HH, Guy and Sampa have a vested interest in maintaining the old order where ordinary Zambian businessmen are relegated to owning grocery stalls & seen nowhere near grand contracts.

  4. Operation watermelon….. kikikikiki we will surely fight this little struggle. Rest in Peace Mapenzi your killers are still vowing to kill more . Our struggle continues Konjila 11/08/16 === HH +GBM . Chinja Mubuso u pile hande !!!

  5. This is serious. No wonder I have stopped seeing any other political party regalia. So every one now is in PF regalia. Truly this will minimise violence and it is a risk free attire. yaba.

  6. “THERE IS NO PROBLEM I AM NOT POWER HUNGRY I WILL GO BACK TO CHAWAMA.” THESE ARE WISE WORDS FROM OUR PRESIDENT.I LOVE HIS HUMILITY THAT ZAMBIANS GAVE HIM 1 YEAR SEVEN MONTHS TO RULE.

    • Or one year seven months to MISRULE and steal K 23 million of poor Zambian taxpayers money????

      And destroy Zambias economy by his incompetence and drunkenness?

      Wise words? This man does not have anything “wise” in him. He only knows violence, pangas, threats and LIES.

      He will change his tune fast when he sees he is losing the election. You will see.

  7. We all know the truth of how the political climate is in this country. Propaganda will not work against the informed. Talk policy issues and not tribalism, violence and intimidation.

  8. why is that all what upnd does is attached to blood? what do they see in red?
    i have never seen angels in heaven dressed in red,weddings puting on red attire.
    only evil is associated with red things coz they symbolises blood. when the a ngels apeared to juses on the mountain when he was praying they wore white cloths. in short red is for devils like upnd.

  9. GO WELL HH WE WILL MISS YOU IN THIS POLITICAL CIRCLE,
    WE WILL MISS YOU GREATLY BUT REMEMBER TO STOP SATANISM AND MAKE SURE YOU REPENT

  10. UPND are liars and they are violent, I recently escaped lynching as a passerby and they normally use short axes they pull from their pockets. if unchecked these people can ruin this country to ashes and they don’t care a bit.

  11. Lungu has to pay zambians to attend his rallies. Without free music from musicians no one will attend.

    He has spent 10 billion US of our money and still has to issue threats and intimidation to keep some traction on the electorate.

    We have voted many times with HH, GBM, and Scott all participating but never have we seen such levels of violence.

    Only when lungu participates do we see levels of violence and thuggery never seen before.
    The man is a thug. Period.

  12. PF thought that the opposition will fail to penetrate Lusaka and copper belt but to their surprise the part has moved to their bed rooms.
    We know the people who started PANGAs are PF and they are being beaten everyday day.
    I like the operation water melon it has served many people from PF thugs.

    • @SUDAN
      START ORGANISING FOR 2021 BECAUSE PF IS WINNING WITH A LANDSLIDE NEVER WITNESSED SINCE 1991.
      MEANWHILE UPND SHOULD HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS NOT A REGIONALIST
      OTHERWISE FORGET IT EVEN IN 2021 AND 2026…. AD INFINITUM

    • @ARMCHAIR CRITIC

      PF will only win if and when Lungu

      unsteals the K15 million
      unborrows the US$10 billion
      reduces mealie meal from K90 to K37
      reverses inflation to 7% from the over 20% he brought
      reverses dollar to K4
      dununa reverses prices of all groceries
      vomits all the corruption he has put in Zambia
      resurrects all innocent youths he has killed with his pf thugs who he pardoned from prison
      he stops doing what he loves most ….seeping Jameson Whisky

  13. COUNTDOWN AS UPND PARANOIA INCREASES
    =============================
    Let’s not forget that HH’s UPNDown is using the PF regalia to commit all forms of atrocious acts – armageddon- like in nature to frame the innocent PF. Let it be told here and now that operation watermelon is mapatizya formula reloaded. Thanks to ZP for disbanding GBV-M’s militia. We were going to really suffer. Trash like this won’t gonna take place. Ifintufye in ECL. Dununa reverse.

    • Dununa reverse son is simple and straight forward pf is gone in reverse period[Bye Bye Uncle James Dizzy,We Shall Meet In The Gallows of Chawama drinking Shake Shake]
      Forward we are going we have had enough of this drama from a simple drunk !

  14. The truth always comes out & it will come out eventually. The violence happening now is unprecedented & so far evidence is there that a militia is being trained from secret locations. It also looks like SG has not denied authoring the confidential memo on the proposed cabinet in case of a win. This was a golden opportunity to deny the contents but I suppose there is nothing to deny.

  15. Operation watermelon my toilet. Behold, time for reckoning is nigh. Police prepare to cage all thuggerous UPND goons. Kindly preserve Zambia. We shall not eat or live or think politics all our time. There will be life after 8/11 as we usher ECL in State house for his solid 5 year tenure and sentence Hetch Hetch to his unprecedented 7th time bitter loss.Ifintu umwene namenso yobe. Viva ECL!

    • Kamwamba you will be retired permanently. No one will ever take you serious anymore. Wait and see. You are gone.

  16. I predict a peaceful polls day. We have just a moment to end these mesenaries of violence. I also predict a massive defection in the post elections.

  17. Don’t worry the red inside is consumed And defaecated while the green remains and takes long to rot

    • This is one big mistake you making, once you do that, more seeds you disperse you filthy animal, more watermelons grow. In agriculture we call that seed propagation.

    • This is one big mistake you making, once you do that, more seeds you disperse you filthy animal, more watermelons grow. In agriculture we call that seed propagation.

  18. Chagwa is scared because now he does not know who his allies and enemies are…watermelon is ingenious!

  19. wow powerful operation water melon. It has confused the enemy. Go even receive their cash and vote change when in the booth. Enjoy your tax. These chaps have stolen enough.
    Vote to liberate the country from a curse called PF!

  20. So Mr Stephen Katuka, are you then assuring us that you will accept tge results when you pose on 8/11? That is maturity unlike your boss underfive boy boss. But whatever violence HH has planned after his defeat will not take place as tge defeat will be so overwhelming that his cadres will abandon him. I mean can his militia hack anyone during massive celebrations? Not at all.

  21. Imagine a country where the president is afraid of watermelons? The world is surely laughing at this man who is unable to do his job and must surely go

  22. We are ready to retire this self centred and egocentric fellow called HH from politics. We are doing a don’t kubeba on him. We can’t afford to be ruled by a tribalist and petty chap. wait and see!

    • So why worry if he is a tribalist as no single tribe unlike in Zimbabwe can win an election.

      So chill if UPND has only support from one region…..then go to sleep and stop campaigning.

      But then you know it…..don’t you. Its operation water melon. You know that the whole nation has now shifted to UPND-HH.

      And by the way, even if everyone changes to vote for you party, I will singularly vote for HH. Operation Watermelon!!!

  23. The wealthiest continent in the world is the poorest, ask yourself why??? Africa has too many corrupt officials who make lousy trade deals that only benefit themselves and their foreign investors. Nigeria is on the right path, they took control of their own resources and thw next step is to distribute that wealth. The problem is too many voters misuse their privileges and vote blindly either because it benefits them or they are just caught in the hype and misinformed. The youth are the future as they do not bow down to colonial powers. Zambia might be independent but it’s still a slave to the west and until it takes charge of it’s resources, trade deals we’ll make slow progress until we have nothing left worthy for investors to want to make good deals with us. We need to become self…

    • My friend Nigeria is reverse. Corruption is now worse although Buhari is doing his best to eradicate it

    • Thepeopleschamp even if you ignore the corruption and criminality in Nigeria, how many military coups and wars resulting in the deaths of millions of people has Nigeria had? And even currently in a state of terror in many parts. Be careful what you wish for, blaming the West is often just a case of being lazy and looking for an excuse

  24. Only eight days and ECL to be declared the winner come Friday, Saturday or Sunday next week!!!! EIGHT DAYS BANE!!! VOTE ECL let’s complete the development programme and preserve the unity of Zambia!!

  25. Father God, any evil thing, word and thought programmed into the sun, the moon and the stars against team HH, dismantle and obliterate, in the name of Jesus. I shake off every mendacity, lying, calculated deception, gang and cyber warfare, incantation, oppression, wickedness, abuse and violence. I terminate forever, every evil agreement, plan and cabal amongst HH’s opponents and the heavenlies. I retrench and frustrate forever every satanic priest ministering enchantment into the sun, the moon, and the star against HH. Lord, bless HH, and cause Your face to shine upon him and let HH be known and favoured in each household and those that are voting across the length and breadth of this land of Zambia. Father favour HH with triumph over his opponents. In Your favor, Lord, make his…

  26. IT IS REALLY TRUE THAT ABSOLUTE POWER ABSOLUTELY CORRUPTS! THIA IS WHAT IT IS DOING TO PF AND CHAGWA LUNGU. ALL OF THE SUDDEN HE HAS FORGOTTEN THAT HE WAS IN OPPOSITION RECENTLY. PF HAS NEVER BEEN UNIP NOR MMD.

  27. Just look at this kama Katuka, he is so impoverished and looks like a real thug like William Banda. Atase, are these the criminals who cheat themselves that they can be in charge of Zambia’s affairs, BIG NO! The fact is HH, his running mate GBM and entire UPND are woefully UNFIT to be near the corridors of power and we are more than geared to ensure this is done.
    I also urge the IG to unleash the Mobile Police Force Unit in areas where these crooks want to cause confusion when they are defeated. Am sure most of these T0ngas dont know how swift and deadly the Mobile Police Force Unit are, let them ask us the Kopala people. When we keep quiet it doesnt mean we are weak but to the contrary! Kamfinsa and Mobile Police Force Unit, is what these criminals in UPND deserve during and after…

  28. HH must prepare to retire from active politics after elections. The dream of tonga becoming the president will never come true as the party was started in a bad faith and bad intentions.

    • No Upnd was started for a good reason as Mazoka was hounded from MMD by Sata who didn’t want competition. Upnd lost it after Sejani announced at the election to replace the late Mazoka that Upnd was for Tongas. This lead to Patrick Chisanga, Sakwiba, Sichinga etc to leave

  29. Welcome to State House HH! Now State House will once again become what it should be ‘State House’. No more beer bottles at State House. No more sex with Dora, Mumbi Phiri and other yellow women and the president in broad day light. The past two years were such a big lesson in how to be stupid as a country. On 11 August, I will personally drive all my relatives and friends to polling stations. Please God, bring August 11 faster, I can’t wait!!!

  30. No amount of vocals shall change the fact that PF is winning this election. This is due to the good policies and demonstration that they are capable of delivering.

  31. Tonga party should be retired on 11th august.let us not follow this Tonga party called UPND otherwise mukacula especially u bembas if u vote for this tribalist.U have seen how they are beating bemba teachers in southern.Tekweshi ukuvota party iyi.

  32. Zambian Politics. We are still young, still growing up.
    Instead of debating issues people are busy bullying and insulting each other.
    Fellow Zambians, let’s be the change we wish to see, these politicians contesting are not even interested in your affairs once given the opportunity to govern.
    So far so good. The politicians have sold their manifestos, come 11th August Zambians will choose either to Dununa reverse some. Or operation watermelon.

    It is a secret ballot. Vote wisely. I wish you well.
