UPND President Hakainde Hichilema
UPND President Hakainde Hichilema
Suspended UPND Vice President for Politics Dr Canisius Banda has castigated Party leader Hakainde Hichilema for circulating his suspension letter before he received it.

And Dr Banda says Mr Hichilema was an ungrateful man who has chosen to punish a man who has been cheering him on.

Dr Banda who has been charged with gross misconduct by President Hichilema, said it was unethical for Mr Hichilema to circulate the letter before giving it to him.

“It’s unethical, how can they do that without giving me first, you know that’s unethical! You first give to the recipient before you circulate it widely,” he said.

And Dr Banda said instead of punishing him the UPND leader should have written a note of gratitude and commendation.

“I was expecting a letter yes but a letter of gratitude and commendation, that Dr Banda with you in our political Party the fortunes of the UPND have improved, that you have been such an exemplary player, you have campaigned passionately for Hichilema and the Party and we are giving you a note of gratitude and we commend your attitude and we would like other citizens to emulate you,” he said.

He added “Yes am disappointed, I mean how can a letter like that be riches to me. I mean I am Vice President for politics in the UPND, if you go to the PF you won’t find records that I am a member there, you go to FDD I am not a member there, if you go to UNIP am not a member there, I am a member of the UPND, am Vice President there and I have executed my duties very well so that letter is not only going to shock you but will shock all the citizens in the country and the origins and the spirit behind it will remain elusive and mysterious.”

Asked on his his relationship with his President Dr Banda said he has performed his duties diligently and that, that is how they relate.

He said he has advised Mr Hichilema on a number of issues including on “wolves like Miles Sampa” but that he has chosen to slap him as opposed to saying thank you for improving the Party’s fortunes.

“I relate with him as President, he has specific duties and functions and I have mine and that is how we relate, when he delegates tasks to me I perform them and I have been with him this way, that way, I have attended meetings with him,I have attended meetings with international organizations with him and I have advised him one on one personally even…I want you to quote me on this even wolves like Miles Sampa I warned Hichilema about Miles one on one because I love the man that’s why I attached myself to him and the UPND because I want to promote him and help him become President and now today you see what he has done, he has slapped the very man who has been cheering him on. That is amazing and I don’t understand it you see am laughing here,” he said.

He also said as a leader Mr Hichilema should have taken time to chat with him before writing a letter of suspension.

“Mr Hichilema could have come home to have a chat with me, I mean he is a leader, we could have discussed this matter,” he said.

He also said the letter by Mr Hichilema vindicates people who have been telling him to leave the party.

“It puts me in very good standing with the citizens because the citizens will be asking but this person is he not the person who sang praises for Hichilema now have you seen what has happened, we told this person that you are stupid! Have you seen the people you are with now. You see, instead of saying thank you they are writing letters like this to you. So people will be shocked as to the origins and contents of the letter,” he said.

    • The UPND vice president has been shadow boxing for a while now. If he really had issues such as the ones he has raised shouldn’t he had done so privately to HH? Since he has been using the press and social media as his preferred means of communication how is he now offended that the people his has been attacking have hit back?
      By the way he was right about one thing that the ZWD is UPND’s rabid dog not so sure about his other rantings such as the other guy knowing the cure for AIDS.

    • Dr CB you made a grave mistake to consider a convention in order to challenge the UPND supreme leader Hayatollah Hichilema (HH). Eating with the supreme leader at the same table does not make you one of their own. You need to be one of them to be their party president. Dr CB, kulota sitilesa, koma kalotedwe.

    • Its a shame for Dr CB to realize now that he is a Miss-fit in UPND. We warned him and he never took heed. The cleansing will continue and very soon GBM will be the victim. They want by 2021, all senior positions will be for Tongas. Tongas are a shame to human race. They will always want to be by themselves. My brother married a tonga woman i know who they really are. Dr banda has no space in UPND, let him move out and find a life somewhere else.

    • Soon HH will appoint the STRANDED PIMP in the name of one and only ‘Nervous’ Mumba as Choirmaster to replace CB—he is looking for a job after all. He will then be used and dumped just like what has happened to the “Praise Singer”, Dr. CB. Stay tuned!

      The INFALLIBLE SMALL “god” of the under-five Party is cunning as a Fox. Let GBM open his eyes and smell the coffee, it is you next. Don’t say will didn’t warn you!

  1. My Mbuya Banda has a point here. It is, indeed, unprofessional to circulate a suspension letter of somebody before the recipient even gets it.

    But again , what is new here. Come on, people, we are talking about an Under 5 party with its Under Five President. This is normal for them.

    Remember, they spent the whole week circulating the election petition summons to everybody, including social media, excerpt the intended recipient, PF lawyers. The Judge had to direct them to serve summons on PF lawyers. This is the Under 5 style of doing things. Nothing new here. Next please..

  2. “….I have executed my duties very well so that letter is not only going to shock you but will shock all the citizens in the country and the origins and the spirit behind it will remain elusive and mysterious.”- Dr. Banda, ONLY THOSE WHO DON”T YOU and the POLITICS of the UPND and ZAMBIA at large will be shocked! You were in MMD but during the working relationship with UPND to strategise for 2016 elections,YOU and Nalumango switched sides to UPND. WHY?? ““It puts me in very good standing with the citizens because the citizens will be asking but this person is he not the person who sang praises for Hichilema now have you seen what has happened,..” PEOPLE MAY NOT SAY THAT when they know the reasons for your suspension, having known the UPND for sometime now! This is ZAMBIAN POLITICS…

    • Mwanangwa,
      Bemba party? led by a non bemba (nsenga) as president, and another non-bemba (lozi) as a running mate? surely your are high on something illegal. The true colours of tribalist is that when you expose them they point at a non-issue as comparison. Shame on you Mwanangwa

    • PF is a Bemba Party that allows other Tribes to lead it. It is obvious why UPND under HH tribal judgement will not likely win any future election with a 3-10 formula. UPND has to drop its tribal politics and become national. GBM and Nevous Mumba are wasting their time in UPND. CB is now getting the message the hard way –

    • Bembas consider anyone who speaks Bemba as Bemba. PF president doesn’t even speak a single word of Nsenga so he is Bemba.

    • PF hackneyed propaganda strategy is akin to “Nazi Germany” and “Third Reich persecution and slaughter of the 6 million Jews:
      I. portray UPND as a Tonga party despite leadership sharing with likes of Katuka, Canisius Banda, Mutale Nalumango etc. Accuse the Tongas as the ones refusing PF hegemonic incompetence and label this constitutional right to reject mediocrity, plunder of national resources and corruption as ‘Regionalism”, “tribal”, “bitter”, “bemba-haters”. Tongas are being targeted like the Jews during the Nazi or Tutsis during Rwanda Genocide.
      II. insult anyone from Bembaland associating with UPND as anti-Bemba traitors
      III, potray Lungu is defacto leader of PF when he is a hostage of Bemba mafia. Just check his cabinet. Pretend Lungu has not breached constitution Articles…

    • VII. wage a campaign akin to one who has just had carnal knowledge of a minor that even with the fraudulent ECZ, Lungu only won convincingly in the Bemba-East enclave of three provinces ie. Northen and Luapula (Muchinga is a Sata creation) and of course wako in wako Eastern. HH won convincingly in FOUR provinces Central, Western, North Western and Southern. Lusaka and Copperbelt were shared. UPND won Lusaka and that is why Lungu using his friends Mulenga Mungeni and Mwewa dribbled UPND out of even a hearing so that facts and evidence is not brought to light!
      VIII. Promote tribal hatred and vilify the provinces in the half of Zambia that supports UPND by labelling them tribal for refusing to allow PF robbery of state resources to go unchallenged.

    • The PF campaign strategy led by Lungu and as shown in their master strategy of dominating UPND is anchored on one item: Tonga hatred.

      The PF goebels style has employed an army of bloggers and sought paid services of Newspapers like Daili nasion to carry out their Tonga hate tribal campaign to stop people querying the malaise the country is facing under Bemba extremist gridlock on state power which they are using to rampage and raid the nation.

      Like Hitler’s Third Reich and Rwanda’s Hutu extremists, these Bemba supremacists have gone to label Tongas as evil incarnates and lump the majority Zambian tribes that support them as Tongas. Fact is PF is supported by principally two tribes Bembas and Easterners.

  9. It is now clear that whatever relationship there was between Canisius and the UPND has now broken down irretrievably. The two parties are now in an irreconcilable relationship which they will do well to end. This whole episode is doing neither party any favours.

  11. What is the International Criminal Court?
    The International Criminal Court (ICC or ICCt) is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague in the Netherlands. The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.

    0

    0
  12. Who may submit cases to the Court?

    Only States are eligible to appear before the Court in contentious cases. At present, this basically means the 192 United Nations Member States.

    The Court has no jurisdiction to deal with applications from individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporations or any other private entity. It cannot provide them with legal counselling or help them in their dealings with the authorities of any State whatever.

    However, a State may take up the case of one of its nationals and invoke against another State the wrongs which its national claims to have suffered at the hands of the latter; the dispute then becomes one between States.

  13. Piece of advice to Dr. C. Banda: Seek audience with the UPND President and discuss this matter with him privately. Remember that Mr. Hichilema has stated that he has been trying to meet you over the issues raised but for some reason this meeting has not been possible. Perhaps he is not responsible for the letter having found its way to other parties other than yourself. Calm down and show maturity in the way you handle this.

  14. Dr Banda was just waiting for something like this to happen. I do not for one believe his sob story. The guy is down & out & needed to find a way to justify his move to PF.

  15. It is said that “leaders are emulated but bosses are worshiped”. The action taken by your boss, if the way it is being portrayed is true that he circulated the letter before you (Banda) had knowledge of it’s contents, is tantamount to buying an electric toy for your baby as a bath toy knowingly it will electrocute him. A leader asks himself, has he viewed the situation in the eyes of the subject, has he objectively gathered and considered all facts, what similar misdeeds has he done in the past? Not to just re-Act because women are shouting slogans out there!

  17. We must all understand that HH is a very angry man. He is so upset, angry and furious. He tested the mood of the international Community and realized, they were al saying “ya! ehh sorry sir. this things are not fair. Too bad but you know you were the best and you will next time win” but HH does not want “next time”. He know the PF has realized his game plan, the Dundumwezi game plan. I am not saying PF will go and get Dundumwezi, he know PF will re-register voters and in 2021, all of the PF will be ferring voters to the polling centres and organized Sundaundi everywhere. PF will still win it from its strongholds not getting Dundumwezi or Mazabuka. We know those people can never change. They can only change if a certain person from a certain group stood on PF.

  18. In 1963 JFK was killed and Lyndon Johnson a running mate and vice president succeeded him to complete JFK’s term. In 1964 Johnson won the election with a landslide. In 1968 he did not run because he had become unpopular because of the Viet Nam war. Similarly ECL won the 2015 election after the demise of MCS (MHSRIP}and in 2016 he narrowly won which means if our constitution is similar to the American one ECL will be again eligible to run in 2021. HH should therefore concentrate on strategizing on how he is going to beat his nemesis in 2021 since we have been informed that HH can stand on the UPND ticket ad infinitum instead of ICJ which is involved in crimes against humanity unless the 2016 elections was a crime against humanity and the case of Bemba of the DRC comes to mind.

    • Lungu lost the 2011 elections, unless you don’t live in Zambia.

      Lungu waged a brutal reign of terror especially in Lusaka and emptied govt coffers to bribe all and sundry. But Zambia and especially Lusaka turned out to shame him. Then the shenenigans began with Lusaka votes not being counted and / or announced. The rest of the robbery story is well documented.

      There is irrefutable and incontrovertible and cogent evidence of Lungu’s theft. That is why working with his friends Mulenga Mungeni, Palan and Mwewa he stopped the ConCourt from hearing this evidence.

      OK…if there is no evidence, let the ConCourt afford the rest of the Zambians who don’t know this evidence to have it published for a week in the Daily Mail and Times of Zambia as these are govt papers.

  19. Yes we saw it coming. Dr Banda was used. The first involved him being passed for GBM as Vice President. That was the turning point. This fight is a Leadership fight. PF has nothing to gain whether Dr Banda joins them or not. The suspension letter is full of allegations and no hearing was afforded to him. If you take it to even a simplest customary court it will thrown out in a second. Its a shame that the UPND lawyers are silent and have turned a blind eye to this open persecution in their own backyard. Hypocrites peddling their credentials ( Prof What ?, Dr what ?) only for their selfish and personal gain. Lets hear your opinion now. So where is justice in UPND. Only when it favors HH and his clowns

  26. ICC IS FOR SERIOUS CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY ONLY
    I have just consulted a Lawyer friend who says, the ICC is not for every political case from a UN Member State. The matter should broader on crimes against humanity(the fellow showed me a number of atrocious cases which merited audience at the ICC. There is no Zambian picture of crimes against humanity. Can not go to ICC, neither can HH for losing the election. I think we really have dull and dysfunctional Lawyers in UPND. So much guess work and we end up with cases on our heads. I can see Mushipe being squizzed for undressing the Court. Which Law did she study? We are embarrassed! The Party has no guidance at all everybody has left everything to HH. Convention! Kwamana!BB.

  31. There are problems in Zambian politics hunger, lack of strategystrategy, lack of interpersonal skills and lack of courage. Hunger is simple Mr Banda has been bought and soon all those without a good income but can be used by pf will be bought. Samoa will be brought 2 his knees because he worked with wrong party now he wants 2 go 2 right 1. Upnd and Banda both should not be using the media 2 communicate they are 2 close. They also should not allow enemies 2 separate them just like kambwili and the President should not allow anything 2 separate their love not even a charge letter. When you speak through people you will get bad news about your colleague. This is not about being Tonga it is about lack of good interpersonal skills which are seen in the whole of Africa where democracy is not…
