parley1Out going ZANASU Vice President Prince Ndoyi says the behaviour exhibited by opposition UPND MPs who boycotted the official opening of Parliament is disappointing and a holding of hostage of the many people who voted for them.

Mr Ndoyi said it is unreasonable for the MPs to abscond attending to the same duties they aspired to take during the elections.

He said the MPs should quickly wake up and realise that they don’t represent the interest of individuals nor the party but the people who voted for them.

“As the Zambia National Students Union(ZANASU), We are very disappointed by the behaviour of the UPND MPs exhibited today, where they have decided to boycott the ceremonial state opening of parliament for whatsoever reasons. We strongly feel, time for politics is over and there is no need to hold hostage the Zambians that voted for them in those respective constituencies.

“It is completely unreasonable for these colleagues to abscond attending to the duties they aspired to take in an election, have they forgotten that they told the Zambian people in those constituencies that they will represent them and serve them in parliament, now what has changed. It is totally not sensible at all. We believe there is no reason suffice to explain their boycott but we view it as an attempt to abscond duties.

“We call upon them to wake up quickly and soon realise that they don’t represent the interests of the party neither do they represent the Interests of the HH or GBM but they serve the interests of the Zambians who elected them in those respective constituencies, and they must not overlook that responsibility,” he said.

He also said the MPs are into a bilateral agreement with the people and that their loyalty must lie with the people and not to individuals.

“They must agree that they are into a bilateral agreement with the people and not their parties. Their loyalty must lie with the people and not to individuals. They must know that the clock has began to tick, and time is of the essence to deliver development and create opportunities for their people as soon as possible. They must show leadership.

“In conclusion we urge all parliamentarians to stay dedicated to their duties and remain as objective, selfless and patriotic to the greater cause which is Zambia,” he said.

    • And if they had attended….you would be saying the opposition has accepted and endorsed ECL as the duly elected president!! You guys are cheap.

    • The UPND are in the proverbial horns of a dilemma. If they attend parliamentary sessions, this will signify tacit acceptance of the legitimacy of the PF government (which to them is taboo). On the other hand, if they continually boycott these sessions they are likely to face serious sanctions, including expulsion and forfeiture of allowances and gratuities. Where are these miserable souls headed?

    • I hope they will also BOYCOTT their SALARIES/GRATUITIES for attending Parliament run and controlled by MPs belonging to a Govt they don’t recognize. But Knowing their LACK of INTEGRITY (Constitution making process (CCC) comes to mind,) I highly doubt they would give up money. Instead they are willing to play under-5 Politics with the developmental agenda for poor innocent Constituency members who sent them to Parliament.

      Instead of staying and listening to the President for themselves so they can get the facts first-hand, they stay away and opt to rely on HALF-TRUTHS and TWISTS that will tomorrow appear in their favorite news media and blog, The Post and ZWD. And one wonders how they expect to debate (as required by law) intelligently the President’s Speech in Parliament based on…

  3. You comment does not make sense. You are forgetting that the people who voted them in power collectively agreed not to recognise ECL as president, so, you tantrum does not hold any water.
    These people represented by UPND MPs authorised the MPs not to recognise the president as such they are in order not to be present.

    • @Jenifer: So you people are going to spend the entire five years recognizing a LOSER (HH) as president for which Country? Mind you, Southern Province with DUNDU MWEZI as its Capital ain’t a country. STOP being CHILDISH and know where USELESS POLITICKING stops and MATURE POLITICS begins. Five years is a long time to hold the GOOD PEOPLE of Southern Province to RANSOM just to please and massage HH’s out-of-control MADNESS—Grow up folks!!!

    • You’re the one who lacks understanding. Parliament includes the President, & every member when being sworn in pledges to uphold the Constitution & the Presidency.

      If these guys were serious, they should not have taken oath of office. But by taking oath & then defying what they pledged to uphold, they’re committing contempt of parliament.

  4. do not worry about this.
    isn’t this hh the same guy who threatened to make the late sata’s rule difficult when pf won elections….
    isn’t he the same guy who camped mmd and upnd mps in one hotel with a view of choosing his own speaker and not dr. matibini………
    did he ever succeed jn his maneuvers? NO| the chap failed lamentably.
    my question i beg to all sundry is,
    who is this chap and where does he derive all these nonsense from, such that even his chiefs answer to him?
    lets put a stop to these nonsense and put him to where he rightfully belong…… KRAAL.

  5. This seems to be a PF thing as shown by Lungu’s fist. If it were national NO fists at NATIONAL event. Let PF attend. He is supposed to know the difference between NATIONAL events and PF events.

  6. UPND is just wasting our time. They are very childish and that is why they picked GBM for VP – look at the confusion he has added to the party. My prayer is that another opposition party must quickly emerge and take over their place (Main opposition), which can eventually takeover from PF, once PF is tired. As at now PF doesn’t have a genuine opposition party that can do proper checks and balance. In fact the increase in the number of MPs in UPND is due the demise of MMD, else they could have less than 30 MPs.
    God bless Zambia!

  9. The problem is people comment anyhow. The writer of this article lacks understanding of politics. UPND have not recognised Lungu as the winner so attending his functions means accepting. Secondly, the people who voted for UPND also are in tandemn with their MPs. so which people have they betrayed? Actually the opposite should have been true

  12. One of their parliamentary prevaileges…but they attended the election of speaker, deputy and assistant deputy speaker. looks like they are against one person. I also do understand the motive behind. But 58 of all of them. Then there is a good message. After all today it was just like a wedding ceremony and despite having the invitation card one can decide not to attend.

WHO IS READY TO SAY YES TO A THIEF? WAS LUNGU A CHOSEN MAN BY GOD OR DEVIL. HOW CAN A CRIMINAL UNITY THE BROCKEN COUNTRY? CONTINUE AND I URGE ALL WELL MEANING ZAMBIANS THAT WE ARE IN A DILEMA AND ZAMBIA AS A WHOLE IS IN CRISIS. WHO DO YOU WANT TO FULL WITH YOUR SO CALLED DISSAPOINTMENTS. I WONDER IF THIS IS THE WAY ZAMBIANS WANT TO GO.

  25. Sinkamba wisdom – Parliament is place where laws of the land are made. now if the same constitution made by parliament is not respected what is parliament therefore? UPND MPs are educated they know what that action means its a protest that what ever laws that parliament puts in place , the laws must be respected. The problem we have in Zambia is that we have a lot of educated fools. whose interests is just to enrich their pockets. The constitution was recently raped but as usual its business without a vision and integrity. Please , kindly leave UPND MPs alone. They have registered a grievance. which must be evaluated.
