Davies Chama addressing PF Members at the mobilisation meeting
Davies Chama addressing PF Members at the mobilisation meeting
NOT A single ngwee from Government coffers has been diverted for ruling Patriotic Front campaigns and some senior members of the party have dug into their pockets to fund the exercise, says PF secretary general Davies Chama.

Mr Chama has revealed that PF central committee member and Minister of Finance Alexander Chikwanda and other senior members of the party have actually been depositing their own money to the party accounts for campaigns ahead of next week’s general elections.

Mr Chama was rubbishing a phone recording published by the Post Newspaper on Saturday suggesting that Mr Chikwanda had been diverting Government resources into the party through the office of the PF secretary general.

He said those who were accusing Mr Chikwanda and himself of diverting Government resources into PF coffers for campaigns were free to visit the Office of the Auditor General for inspection as it was a public office.

Mr Chama said whenever Mr Chikwanda deposited money from his own pocket into the party account, he always called him (SG) informing him that he had deposited money into the party account.

“When I took over the office from Mr Wynter Kabimba all the accounts were depleted. We had to start looking for ways of raising resources for the party. I remember we organised a fundraising dinner in the UK when I just took over and all the resources realised from that dinner was deposited into the donors’ account for the party,” he said.

Mr Chama said since he took over from Mr Kabimba all the party branches abroad had embarked on fundraising ventures in their respective countries and started depositing money into the party’s donor account.

“We have never taken any single dollar from Government coffers and the Office of the Auditor General can attest to that,” Mr Chama said.

He said being experienced, Mr Chikwanda understood well that ministers were not signatories to ministries’ bank accounts.

Mr Chama said permanent secretaries and directors in the ministries where the ones who were signatories of Government bank accounts.

He said the Patriotic Front was a big organisation with a membership of over one million people from different walks of life and everybody had been donating to the party.
Mr Chama said during the on-going political campaigns a lot of donors had approached the party with sponsorship.

“In fact Mr Chikwanda has been using his own personal money just to see that the PF wins this year’s general elections. He has been a Member of Parliament for five years under the PF and throughout he has been contributing his resources obtained from the National Assembly through gratuity.

“Even other Members of Parliament have been contributing their gratuity to the party; Cabinet ministers have also been making contributions to the party,” he said.

Mr Chama said whenever Mr Chikwanda and other senior members of the party deposited their contributions into the account they always called him to remind him that they had pumped in resources.

Asked whether he had issued an official complaint to law enforcement agencies that his phone was tapped, Mr Chama said he had been consulting on how he would go about it.

    • Really how has Chikwanda managed to pay for ?
      helicopter flights
      Bill boards
      Vehicles
      Fuel
      Party members fees
      Campaign funds in all provinces?
      He must be a financial manger to do that all from his gratuity. Why then doesn’t he use the same brilliant ways to run the country finances?

    • Chikwanda don’t have such money to hire helicopters for Lungu, pay JK & team for singing Dununa reverse every hour, to pay Kalusha Bwalya.
      And is it that it is that Davies Chama running scheming when in fact the stolen money is from Government. We are accusing government to move money to empty PF accounts. So Kambwili is to answer this.
      What does Chikwanda owe PF, why on earth can Chikwanda take personal money to fight his own grandson GBM? Seriously.

    • Its funny! The recording was on this site, I listened to it! Nothing in it showed that the money Chikwanda was referring to came from Government coffer! As observed below @2.2 Mwansa Chileshe, Chikwanda started business a long time ago before GBM & HH and has quite some extensive links to mobilise donors for his party. Chikwanda (ABC) is more exposed and much more mature to boast about his riches that is why people wondered when Sata made him Finance Minister bcoz very few knew that he was a donor to PF and somehow related to some of the key players in the party! Why is it that HH hardly rubbishes ABC the way Nawakwi does and yet he has been at helm of running the economy for 5 years now yet he keeps blaming Lungu who only came a year ago? You be shocked to know why HH respects ABC!!

SHALL THE ALMIGHTY GOD REMAIN GOD INDEED IN THIS BATTLE THAT ZAMBIA IS INTO. SHALL THE GOD OF OUR PATRIARCHS STEP IN AND INFLUENCE THESE ELECTIONS. MAY GOD DECLARE DOOM TO ALL THE ENEMIES OF PEACE. THOSE WHO LIVE BY THE SWORD MUST DIE BY THE SWORD. MAY ALL THOSE DEPLOYED SOLDIERS TURN AGAINST LUNGU AND HAND OVER TO THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE, THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. VIVA CHANGE VIVA! ZAMBIA FORWARD WITH CHANGE INTO THE FUTURE OF PROSPERITY AND UNITY. WE SHALL OVERCOME! I SURELY DO BELIEVE IT!

    • Iwe ka Truth
      No one in his right senses wants Chagwa and PF but involving God to get rid of these incompetent 1diots is going too far.Just go and vote them out that is what we all want to do.Dont overate pipo like Chagwa and his henchmen like Kaiser Zulu.These are raw incompetent pipo,we need no outside intervention.If they rig the polls they will have theselves to blame because no one since 1991 has ruled Zambia without the will of the pipo,and these simple drunks certainly cant manage.

      How do you keep such an incompetent person?He has not even refuted the conversation where Chikwanda complained that the party and government was being compromised,and that PF members were not contributing to the campaign.Does this man read?Did he read the article?It would have been better for him to keep quiet.

      You mean that you think it is now THEIR OWN MONEY once they have stolen it from Government?

      LIAR! It is the proceeds of CRIME and should be treated that way. We will see after August11 where the money has come from!

  5. Well done Mr Chama. At least you have made our job very easy by disclosing to the nation that our Finance Minister Mr Chikwanda has been poring in his “personal” money into the party account. You will be a useful witness after 11 August next week. You forgot to mention Mumpangwe Mwanakatwe and ZESCO.

  7. The evidence showing that Lungu’s illegal Ministers are abusing state resources and stealing govt money to enrich themselves and finance PF campaigns is overwhelming and is there. Where did Alex Chikwanda get all this money to finance PF campaigns if not from the Treasury? Where did Lungu get $2.7 million in 18 months if not from corrupt deals and direct plunder of the National Treasury? No wonder Lungu and his illegal Ministers are busy rigging these elections so that Lungu remains President and protect these criminals and thieves from prosecution. The day of reckoning is fast approaching and Lungu and his illegal Ministers will be made to account. To stop this abuse and looting we need to vote out these criminals and thieves out of power without fail. Forward with HH,GBM and UPND.

  12. It is a known fact that Chikwanda gets kick backs from Chinese loan and Indian loan contracts. Just ask ZESCO! He is funding PF not out of national interest but personal knowing that he will recoup more if PF wins more than what he has recouped in the past five years. Just a reminder. … do you remember whose company refurbished state house immediately PF came into government? Apollo, Chikwanda’s company. That was the beginning of Chikwanda’s ” Gravy train!” What a bunch of theives

  13. Do you bloggers remember that Chikwanda funded PF almost single handedly before PF even came into power? Do you remember that even in 2008 when Mwanawasa died Sata was flown all over following the body of Mwanawasa – while he (sata) was campaigning?

  16. This is fascinating stuff! Why would Mr Chikwanda fund the PF when he’s already stated that he would be retiring from politics and government after his present term as FM? Doesn’t it smell like a rotten rat? If indeed it is Mr Chikwanda funding the PF, then we should assume that he has a vested interest somehow in ECL remaining president. We should then be preparing to examine the sources of that money and what he’s so keen to protect. Corruption seems to be the only explanation, which means prosecution when this corrupt lot are out. This time, lets ensure that not only the head is cut of but also the eggs and body are on pyre of fire.

  19. Chikwanda is retiring after this election but it is in his interest that Lungu is re-elected President so that his stolen wealth can be protected. Lungu and ABC are partners in crime and have been stealing and looting govt money together. Just like RB is supporting Lungu becoz the two are now partners in crime and have an interest in Lungu remaining President to protect both from criminal prosecution.Should a new govt come to power ABC,ACL,RB and all Lungu’s illegal Ministers would end up in jail. To stop this from happening Lungu intends to remain in power by hook or crook. We should vote out these liars and criminals and elect HH & UPND as the new President and govt. Forward with HH,GBM & UPND.

  21. Chikwanda is a business man and a share holder in many companies just like your HH, dig deeper if you want proof. and why do you want to know who is funding PF what about your UPND who is funding them? PF managed in 2015 to fund for them selves when your muzungu opusa couldn’t allow them not even to use one single vehicle, so what will stop them from getting funding from well wishers now. it only 5 days from now wina azalila oweeeeeeeeeee
