UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda
UPND vice president Dr Canisius Banda
Former United Party for National Development Vice President for Politics Canisius Banda has distanced himself from the story that was published on 4th October, 2016 in one of the named daily tabloid suggesting that he said the PF won the August 11 elections fair and square, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.

On his Facebook posting which Pan African Radio verified with him to be authentic, Dr. Banda said the headline in the named newspapers and its fiction was fabricated.

He said the “PF Won, Says Canisius” headline alongside its byline and the first paragraph is only a warped reflection of an active and creative mind of the named daily tabloid.

He said the story is merely a figment that represents the editor of said newspapers’ bent and overzealous imagination.

Dr. Banda revealed that he spoke with the reporter responsible for the story and the reporter was equally shocked that the headline was at variance with their conversation, affirming and protesting that he did not write what was published in the paper.

The former UNPND Vice president further disclosed that he also spoke with Mr. Richard SAKALA, the owner of the named newspapers who pledged to retract the headline and correct the false impression that his paper have created.

“Even as we seek personal or organizational ends, we must never sacrifice or crucify TRUTH. Lies have no legs. They can’t stand”

“And the truth is that I did NOT say what Richard SAKALA says I said. Nonetheless, the rest of the story, though fraught with grammatical errors, reflects an accurate view of my minds” DR. Banda said.

    • Canicius should be wary of his fellow wakos. They will finish him and paint him as unprincipled in their quest to vilify HH. However, this is the path he has chosen by jumping into the wako boat. Let the games continue.

    • Here is what I think is true; the Doc said everything that fake Daily Nation wrote, at least the content there of. I say so because even in his own letter to HH, the Doc said very similar statements. Its the editor’s job to make a catchy headline and use enticing words to spice up the story. Therefore, I dont blame the fake Daily Nation, I blame Dr Banda for being so naive and opening his mouth carelessly. Yes, we know that the Doc is upset. However, there is a proper way of handling such sensitive issues.

      The Doc has now realized most people, even none UPND supporters, think that he is childish, unstable, untrustworthy, big traitor, reckless, unappreciative and very short-sighted. His own words will haunt him.

    • And just a reminder to Daily Nation, Zambia Reports and all the other crooked tabloids, have you seen how CNN’s ratings are tumbling down? Yep, its because of such propaganda and bias. CNN is disgusting to watch. It has no news anymore other than supporting Hillary.

      I for one dont even read Daily Nation and Zambia Reports. It has been months now. For now I read Zambian Eye, The Post and Lusaka Times. I might eliminate Lusaka Times soon.

    • Mr Intelligent, You are a well known Hakaindeist so its not surprising your you have issues with any publication that writes something negative about HH or UPND. As for me, I stopped reading the post the moment i realised that they are crooks who don’t want to pay tax. I wonder what HH was promising mmembe

    • Look at how Lusaka Times is failing to say the truth about the fraudulent story published by Daily Nation of crooked Richard Sakala.
      Even this tabloid Lusaka times published the same lies about Canicious Banda yesterday.Lusaka times also failed to acknowledge that they did a copy and paste of Sakala’s lies in order to please pathetic felons (PF)!
      LT is now PF, and losing its losing credibility because of being biased against the opposition. Any story to do with the opposition, especially UPND is always with purposive grammatical errors initiated by Lusaka times.

    • The daily nation has no business in deceiving people; they report for what it is.

      On the contrary, the Post Newspaper has a tendency of deception, capitalizing on weak minds, twisting facts and wining over these targeted weak minds, who will be left feeling they are thinking of their own accord to agree with the Post.

      Thus weak minds, being easily manipulated by the Post using very, very, …, very simple and extremely cheap psychology, believe the Post Newspaper is giving them the best news.

      There is nothing I can do, but laugh.

    • @Musune – Yes I support UPND and I have no regrets. I cant just switch like the Doc and Miles just because PF “won”. I still believe UPND has good policies to boost the economy unlike PF spending the little cash we have ordering killing machines!!

      I am sure you are interested in knowing my tribe!! I am half Lamba (dad’s side) and half Tonga (mom’s side) and I am proud of it. Do you have another question for me?….

    • This job from Chagwa is taking too long coming and the man therefore is getting confused by the day. Anyway, he will soon realise what we have always said that whenever someone joins PF, no matter how much brains he has had before, he losses it all and becomes confused. soon Banda will be saying PF is the best party to rule Zambia because Fintu ni Lungu.

    • So called Newspapers in Zambia are so biased. I dont waste time reading the following:
      Zambia Daily Nation
      The Post
      Zambia Watchdog
      Zambia reports
      Zambia Daily Mail
      Times of Zambia

    • There’s a reason why Canicius only gives exclusive interviews to the Daily Nation. And each time he seems to retract parts of the story. But this is just a game of halftruths and innuendo. Canicius Banda is proving himself as unreliable as Miles Sampa and Elias Chipimo.

  2. Lungu, eo twilwite! Lungu eo twikwite!
    Power hungry Lungu through His Richard Sakala are trying to creat an impression that Lungu chakolwa won. MY advise to Richard Sakala is that He should keep the ethics of journalism otherwise People Will stop buying His paper.
    Um sure He is aware that people no longer watch deadnbc because of forming a pact with pf.

  3. Why is Zed so far behind the curve in integrity matters? The media has created such a confusing scenario that it is no longer easy to tell whether the citizens are genuine or the papers are hellbent on contorting the country beyond recognition. Something has got to give.

    • something will sure give when this false tranquility bursts open as the truth is revealed. Lies and cheating have short legs; it will all unfurl when the public know the true nature of the man in State House and the sinister, wasteful plans in the creation of new ministries that will only bloat the government machinery we can ill afford!

  4. I have never believed this Richard and his mouth Daily Nation Paper. There reporting is so pathetic, everyday they float lies in there paper. I don’t what prison does to paper though I can gladly guess it destroyed Richard and is reflected in his daily nation reporting.

    • Prison makes you know that there is no truth in life. Real criminals are running govt, churches, NGOs and companies. It is only those who got caught or do not control police who end up in prison. When you realise this, then you know that truth is malleable.

  5. Mushotanyoko you are an idi0t! You can’t start accusing the writer, that journalist only writes nothing but the truth. But f00ls like you finds joy in attacking everyone, you don’t deserve to live. I like this journalist because he is fearless and knows what he is doing… I have read most of his articles, only f00ls like you would accuse him of being partisan.

  9. SEE THE LAST PART OF THE STATEMENT IN DISPUTE

    “And the truth is that I did NOT say what Richard SAKALA says I said. Nonetheless, the rest of the story, though fraught with grammatical errors, reflects an accurate view of my minds” DR. Banda said.

    WHAT TRUTH CAN ONE GET FROM SUCH SCRIBES?

  10. That is what is written on Dr. banda’s posting, the writer never missed anything, he is accurate, unless you wanted him to add his opinions. Condemn banda not the writer, he only wrote what banda said. If banda contradicted himself, that is not the problem of the journalist, am just from checking on fb, the writer is accurate.

    • Funny how people can change in 24 hours! There are Tonga tribalists on this forum who yesterday were castigating all easterners because of the Dr’s alleged statement on the election who are now defending him because he has retracted the story! Are you also going to retract your insults against Easterners? Eastern province and Southern province have virtually the same population, so if Eastern province votes against UPND it virtually cancels out UPND’s win in Southern province. I would urge some of you zealots who support Namwala ethnic cleansing to think about that before you post your bitter and hate filled rants.

  12. Dr. Canisius Banda, can you stop behaving like a hopeless man who keeps on referring to the wife he divorced years back whenever he encounters good or bad experiences! This shows you still have a tag to UPND and you want to continue praising “wamuyayaya” president Kainde Chilema!

  13. I have resisted commenting on anything in the Zambian news media including the drivel from ZNBPFC. I can however say that Zambians are being indoctrinated by the propaganda disinformation tactic known in psychology as subliminal and reflexive control. What PF has been able to do in the 5 years they have been in power is to use every nefarious trick in the books such as tag fellow citizens as tribalists and making them feel guilty about their being who they are. In their efforts to defend themselves they act in a manner that may appear to a largely mentally indolent citizenry to confirm what they have been accused of. If you think this is a joke, you better read peer-reviewed literature on mind control and you will know what I mean.

  14. Richard Sakala, like an old dog the lumpen just seems wholly incapable of learning. This is the same chap who saved time in jail for thieving and lying. Now here he goes once again, never having learnt a lesson that lies do not pay he goes out telling stinking lies about Dr Banda. You know, I worked with this chap at the UN in Kenya, he was the communications liaison office then and Inonge Lewanika was one of the bosses for Central and East Africa. He was fired for using his diplomatic status to buy cars and sell them in Zambia. The chap is just so badly wedded to theft, he just cannot help himself. If I was Dr Banda, I would sue him to teach him a lesson!

  15. BEFORE YOU INSULT RICHARD SAKALA, LT OR ZAMBIAN EYE YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. WITH SO MANY LIES ON SOCIAL MEDIA, DO NOT EASILY BELIEVE ANY STORY THAT APPEARS WITH SCREAMING HEADLINES. LAST WEEK IN SOLWEZI AND KASEMPA, A STORY WENT VIRAL ON ONE MEDIA PURPORTING THAT THE CONCORT HAD OVERTURNED ITS RULING AND HH HAD BEEN DECLARED WINNER. THERE WAS CEREBRATION ON THE STREETS OF SOLWEZI AND KASEMPA. ONLY TO BE DISAPPOINTED THAT THAT WAS A TOTAL FABRICATION BY UPND. IT WAS VERY EMBARRASSING. THE AUTHOR OF THE STORY IS IN POLICE CUSTODY IN SOLWEZI. MY WORD OF CAUTION IS THAT LETS BE CAREFUL WITH STORIES ON THE MEDIA. INCLUDING WHAT I HAVE SAID.

  19. @Mr. Intelligent 1.6….I agree with your comment to a certain extent but I tend to disagree with you on the issue you raised about CNN. I live in the STATES and to be honest with you, there’s more coverage on Donald Trump that Hillary Clinton even though with advanced democracies like in America, the playing field is level and just to all Presidential candidates unlike our Zambia where PF and Lungu closed everything away from the opposition preventing them access to freedom of information and publicity. In American politics, you got have the swagger about you and talk sensibly to the American people through debates and countless interviews. Unlike our Zambia, where the incumbent refuses to have any sort of debate on national matters. That should raise EYEBROWS. And when you speak out,…
