Remove the log in your eye,PF SG tells off UPND – media statement

Minister of Home Affairs Davis Mwila
PF Secretary General Davies Mwila

United Party for National Development (UPND) must remove the log out of its eye before it can focus on the speck in PF’s eye.

We further wish to place on record that it is a Party that believes in strong institutions in order to entrench our governance and democracy. Sadly, the Opposition and those they talk to in the Judiciary have shown a predilection to treat every call from the people of Zambia or indeed Executive or the legislature for greater judicial accountability as an attack on the judiciary’s independence. The concerns over the conduct of some judges are serious, genuine and legitimate. Things that have reportedly been said by some of them to the Opposition in private are in tandem with some of the judgements being administered in our judiciary and we are not naive as a Party. We must however emphasize that we still believe the Judiciary has men and women of integrity in the Judiciary; but the Zambian judiciary, like its counterparts elsewhere, relies on its reputation for fairness, impartiality, and incorruptibility. The courts can scarcely afford any loss of public faith.

It is therefore disappointing that a senior citizen like UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka would seek to politic over very objective remarks attributed to Presidential Spokesperson Mr. Amos Chanda who successfully made a case for integrity in the Judiciary. Neither PF as a Party or State House have insulted the Judiciary! UPND must be the last political party to preach respect for the Judiciary as that would be hypocritical.

We ask UPND to accept that Zambia elected President Edgar Lungu and he is in charge for the next five (5) years. While we respect people’s right to seek redress, and we promote more rights for citizens and political organizations such as the UPND, this space does not entail abuse by those with lop-sided agendas. This is the same UPND headed by a man who insulted the judiciary with the motive of blackmailing the institution. While we appreciate Mr. Hichilema’s freedom of expression, he had no sense of shame desired of someone seeking the highest office of the land.

We are calling on the upnd leader and Mr. Hichilema to render an apology to the Judiciary and abandon the hypocritical and bitter path his party has been on since he succeeded the late Anderson Mazoka.

On 10th September 2016, UPND leader Hichilema charged that constitutional court judges were paid huge amounts of money to deliberately lapse the UPND petition to nullify the re-election of President Edgar Lungu in the 11th August general elections.

Can Mr. Katuka tell Zambians when his UPND leader Hichilema is apologising for the lies and insults he unleashed against the Judiciary! Let him show remorse for describing the Constitutional Court judges as thugs and criminals who, according to him, had raped the Constitution and were therefore not worth the gowns they wore as they lacked integrity and impartiality. Let him personally apologise to Judges Anne Sitali, Pallan Mulonda and Mungeni Mulenga whom he likened to Judas Iscariot who betrayed a cause for pieces of silver?

Lastly, we are calling on all Zambians of good will to ignore the bitter politics by the UPND. President Lungu deserves the support of all Zambians in order for him to deliver on the promises PF made. While we welcome cricism and we are not allergic to it, we refuse to be distracted by the UPND and the infamous cartel. We are here to work and bring sanity to all institutions designed to deliver on behalf of the people. This is because we take our role to govern very seriously!

  1. This is the epitome of dullness. A case of “I don’t know what I’m talking about, they just told me to say something” kind of rhetoric.

    • Davis mwila you have rightly screwed in the right hole and the thick headed tribalists have heard. The above 1mbeciles are only pretending that’s why they can’t count oppose what you ‘ve said but choose to insult you.

    • I watched that famous Amos interview, it was sarcastic to the fullest, Sata’s pompous press secretary was better.
      I am waiting for Edgar to comment, if he indeed watched on Thursday night, as he promised. He said we will discuss, and we told him ukuselako, let’s see how he will lamwina the curtain raiser between Davis vs Katuka.

  2. What a load hogwash. We won’t tolerate dictatorship and stup!dity that characterise PF. Hands off the judiciary! Do you hear me, Mwila?

    • What is with PF and stoopidity? It seems to be the ticket for membership. When the President threatens to do to judges as was done in Kenya, and you think that’s the same as opposition leaders who are pissing outside your tent? There’s no cure for stoopidity.

  3. This total break down of our nation these greedy men think they are above the law ,this is total dictatorship Zambia slow moving away from it’s principle of being a democratic nation

  4. Ba Davies, what do u expect from a sata*nist. Sata*nists will never never bow down to apologize. They are obsessed. They want state house which zambians do not want them to occupy. I thank zambians from 7 provinces for coming in numbers to to swallow tribal votes. Ngana tuchula noyu satana mwebantu.

    • Dear dummy, what development are you on about? And who is doing the developing? I know it is hard for PFooters to string a sensible sentence together.

  5. As much as UPND is a bad opposition party, Davis Mwila and Kambwili should never speak for the PF. The president is better off letting the deputy secretary general and Lubinda to speak for his PF.

    Viva president Nawakwi to go for a national convention.

  6. Correct me country men and women. Is this the same Davies Mwila who was not eligible to contest as MP because he had no school certificate?

    • Seriously, PF are behaving like losers. Why are they so prickly, so sensitive to criticism? Even Mwanawasa at his worst, despite his narrow win against Mazoka, did not show this lack of confidence in himself or his party positions.

  7. No Jason stop changing the subject. Davis has just hit the nail on your heads. Namufwa bakulu….. you forget so easily when your HH was alussinating and calling every one names including Martha who is even from the bar and today you want to crucify Amos? hypocrites!! everything imwe its an opportunity for politics

  8. Davies is just dull, can’t even write his English properly. Kindly go through and check his grammatical mistakes before I point them out. Amon Chanda spoke nonsensical statements period! Don’t compare nonsense with nonsense, you claim to be in charge of the country but still continue behaving like you are in opposition. Can you stop the nonsense for once.

    • Ba Mwila landeni fye muchiBemba. We know how you people don’t want to learn or speak other mitundu, including English. That’s why most of you don’t speak in Parliament, instead preferring to insult in Bemba in the background.

  9. PF should just bring back thief Kambwili to rant on its behalf. Mwila appear to be misled because the scale is tilting to justice in Zambia by few judges not bought by PF. PF thought judges who were bought would include private lawyers and other judges, nay, other judges with integrity do exist in Zambia such as current Chief Justice Mama Mambilima. A question for Mwila is which chief justice swore in Edgar Lungu as president of Zambia as per provisions of the constitution?
    PF is standing on shakey ground, tremmers will continue till po boo!

    • I am not sure about Mambilima’s impartiality. She is the one who claimed that because the opposition were attending meetings at Mulungushi, then they also participated in the rigging. She is well disguised but a PF plant nonetheless.

  10. Mwila you are nothing. We all know that the PF is a tribal party so you can’t deceive us. When you collude with the concourt, you don’t talk about the judiciary because it suits you. And for the record, all appeals by your party to the concourt are not going anywhere because of the precedence they set. YOU WERE WARNED!!!! WE TOLD YOU THAT THIS IS A DANGEROUS PRECEDENCE THE CONCOURT IS SETTING. it all fell on dandaheads

    • We know that the official language in PF is Bemba. Even Lungu has to speak in Bemba. Any none Bembas in PF serve or participate at the mercy of their Bemba masters. The trouble is that any other mitundu are supposed to be inferior according to these supremacists. If you stand for your own then they will label and vilify you.

  11. oh my..cry my beloved country..just the colour of his skin can tell whether someone is dull or not..so dull a statement..shame pf

  12. It hurts UPND supporters to hear what the SG has said. The truth is that HH insulted the three judges that ruled in favour of PF in Concourt and he has not apologized. What has changed now?

  13. most of bloggers on this site are naturally dull especially those for the upnd, they have failed to debate the topic at hand instead they keep on insulting the poor mwila.

  14. Upnd animals will never use the head, when your god HH was insulting judges it was bread and butter right? Bafikala mulekwata amano don’t think like your cows

  15. Why are you all UPNDs running away from the main topic? People would like to hear you comments on your HH’s insulting the judges. Come on we are waiting to hear from you under fives.

  16. COUNTRYMEN! THAT STATEMENT WASN’T WRITTEN BY MWILA. THE GUY DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO WRITE. SOMEONE MUST HAVE WRITTEN FOR HIM. HE WAS JUST MERE GENERAL WORKER AT CHAMBISHI METALS. HE CAN’T WRITE SUCH ENGLISH.
    MWILA MUST ALSO FOLLOW THE FOOT STEP OF KEMBE MP AND DECLARE HIS HIV/AIDS STATUS BEFORE HELL BREAK LOOSE..

  17. Most UPND cadres are cowards and hide when confronted with facts. I don’t expect anyone from this under 5 party to respond to the fact that their small god insulted the judges.

  18. UPND please answer the following questions: Didn’t hh say that the judges have been paid a lot of money by PF to rule in PF’s favour, didn’t hh insult the judges and said they are morons, not worthy the gowns they put on. In short are you denying what Mr. D. Mwila has said about hh. upnd will never admit their lies. Even in parliament when they are reminded what they say, the walk out of parliament. Today they did the same when Hon G. Lubinda reminded them of their untruthfulness, they walked out. On this blog they resort to insults, and these are the people who want to rule Zambia one day. Cowards no wonder they are failing to chase hh from the party presidency.

  19. UPND GUYS SOMETIMES YOU SHOULD LEARN TO REASON AND UNDERSTAND THINGS. CHIWAMILA GALU KULUMA MBUZI. GUYS HONESTLY I HAVE PROVED IT THAT YOU BORN TO BE DULL. INFACT WHEN WHEN I REMEMBER HOW YOUR SO CALL HH GOT THAT SEAT I ALWAYS GET ANNOIT BECAUSE THAT SEAT WAS FOR SAKWIBA SIKOTA BUT HOW HE JUST GRABBED IT IS WHAT MAKING HIM NOT BE THE PRESIDENT, THERFORE LET HIM NOT COMPLAIN BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE JUST TRIBALIST AND REGIONAL THAT’S WHY YOU WILL NEVER RULE THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE SAKWIBA HAS CASED YOU FOR GOOD BECAUSE YOU GOT THINGS THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU. YOU DULLS!!!!

  20. As party SG and former home affairs minister one would expect you to be wiser, analytical, tactful and careful. It is not a bad idea to read a bit of law and understand the basics, the set up of the judicial system. Amos Chanda is not a spokes person for the Government or the Party. The government has the minister of information. She will speak on behalf of the government. The party has the Secretary general who articulates the affairs of the party. in what capacity did Amos speak? Where were you the Party SG, who is now speaking after a ‘nonentity’ has spoken? Remember bwana SG that very shortly you will need the lawyers to help you in court and the same judges you are demeaning to deliver a fair judgement. Ask your friend Kambwili what is going on in his mind right now. People rise…
