PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has advised party members to respect the decisions of President Edgar Lungu.

Mr Mwila said when he addressed party officials from district constituencies held at Eastern Comfort Lodge in Chipata on Wednesday that party members should respect the decisions of President Lungu in his effort to deliver according to party manifesto.

He said some people were being critical to some of the decisions which the Head of State was making for the interest of the party and the nation.

“When the President makes proper decisions pertaining to the running of the country, some party members shows disrespect towards such decisions. I am asking you to always show respect to His Excellency the Republican President, Mr Edgar Lungu,”he said.

He told the meeting which included Eastern Province PF Chairperson Andrew Lubusha and PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya among others that respect should start with party members.

Mr Mwila said those who were holding positions but where dropped owing to numerous reasons should start from the grassroots level.

He said the thing would happen to those that had left the ruling party that they should start from the lowest organ of the party.

“People must follow the process because there is no way that you can just jump to look for a senior position in the party without going through various processes or stages,” he said.

In Vubwi, Mr Mwila asked the structures to work closely with the the Member of Parliament (MP) Margaret Miti and Councillors.

He urged them to remain united to make the party strong in Vubwi District.

Mr Mwila congratulated the people of Vuwbi for the wonderful performance in the August 11th general elections.

Mr Mwila and his entourage were currently meeting party structures in various districts of Eastern province.

  1. Mwila is not Secretary-General material. Full stop.
    The only essential criteria Mwila met is that of being Bemba. Had he been Tonga, Luvale, Lozi, Lamba or from the East, he wouldn’t even be offered the post of door bouncer to the PF central committee boardroom.

    • Respect yolwisha iyi bwafya. Besides we know the endemic problem in Zambian politics if you have different views from the almighty President then you dont have respect …. examples are rife in the PF, UPND, FDD ….words like respect, insulting, hate, evil, rebel etc are so abused. This attitude will never take us anywhere we just stifle independent thinking that is all … and in the process progressive ideas are missed. Instead everyone is nodding to the almighty Presido even when he/she farts

    • An Appointee is a reflection of the appointing authority,one of the most valued leaders in PF,can you imagine he was even Home affairs minister and people are surprised why cops are turning citizens of this country who are not PF into shooting targets.If PF does not change the way they perceive politics in 5yrs time they will be no difference between Zambia and South Sudan.

    • Well put GS!
      =======
      I am not PF but that makes sense. The president and the presidency needs respect 100% but open and not immune to insurmountable levels criticism.

    • “When the President makes “proper” decisions pertaining to the running of the country, some party members shows disrespect towards such decisions. I am asking you to always show respect to His Excellency the Republican President, Mr Edgar Lungu,”he said.

      Really laughable … If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.

    • Why should a President have anyone plead for people to respect him. Respecting a President should be natural unless he is not worth respecting.

  2. PF has its way of running the party. To say SG has been appointed because is bemba is not a fair comment. Let PF run its affairs.
    I am not PF, UPND,FDD or any other…..
    sometimes it is prudent to be silent on certain issues.
    Let all bloggers set high standard for discussion. This country needs high performers like the Japanese Malaysians,and Singapore
    For example, if you study ACCA, malaysians and singapores are outstanding. The Singapore has never borrowed to improve their economy and yet we were on the same level with them in 1965.
    I am looking foward to time where Zambians will purpose in their heart never to depend on foreign aid and work with our own resources to improve our economy.
    There is no dignity in begging for foreign aid.

  3. Mwila should understand that Respect is earned and not demanded. If Lungu wants to be respected he must first respect himself and stop eating mangos on the street like a mad man. Lungu should also respect others. A witch is despised and feared but not respected. Why would PF members respect a violent thug and a thief? Even PF Members know that Lungu is an Election thief and therefore an illegitimate President. Very soon PF members who have been betrayed by Lungu will start revealing how Lungu stole the Election Victory from HH. Lungu has no respect for the PF Founding Members and has marginalized them infavour of MMD Members becoz of RB’s influence. Why would these dedicated PF Members respect a leader who has abandoned his flock? No way man!!

    • Chinakubaba Nama elections ayi. Politics is not for the faint hearted. It has always been that way. Chishimba Kambwili is now finding out. You need prudence and resolve to get ground and progress in politics, also a bit of bullishness. Reason smart Zambians are not politicians. Wish they were, but that is a story for tomorrow.

      Viva president Nawakwi the convention hero.

  4. This Mwila man is saying everyone must start from the lower structures of the party before they can think of holding senior positions. He even referred to those who left the party that they will be subjected to starting at the bottom should they want to rejoin the PF. Now, how can he explain people like Dora who became Central Committee Members? Did Dora start from the bottom? These are the issues people are raising. You have forgotten about the true PF members and instead gone to bed with MMD. These are the people who have high ranking positions at the expense of the true PF members. That’s what we are complaining about. So Mr mwila sober up and address the real issues on the ground. Don’t pretend that there are no problems in the PF. There are serious problems in the PF that require…

  5. What meaningful credentials has Lungu got? Why is it that those closest to, and know him best find nothing in him deserving an iota of their respect? Why should the rest of us who have no clue, even how his foot prints look like, accord him a specter of devotion? What has he got to show for it? Why should we be called to respect him? Let him demonstrate the fact; let him prove to us that he is worthy his salt.

    It concerns us that because of his incompetence, we continue to be hungry, poor, jobless etc. His mandate was to govern, not to rule with an iron fist. Speculation has it that a forged ballot paper was what he used to ascend to the throne. If so, why should we now add salt to injury by allowing him to forge our allegiance to his own benefit?

  6. Of course the man is wet and has zero ability! It’s being Bemba that landed him the post after dropping from parliamentary polls for lack of a Grade 12 certificate, too little education. Had he been called Mwindwa, Mwiinde etc, he wouldn’t have been SG. Only last week, Chimbwili walked all over him like he was a doormat and he allowed it with a smile on his silly ? face!

    • And you have nothing to do except monitor everything they say and do. News flash: They don’t get paid from national coffers. Is it possible that you have your sights on wrong people?

      In the meantime, farmers inputs are late, hospitals lack capacity in all conceivable ways, police brutality is unprecedented, crime is on the rise, corruption has become a standard business practice in government…

      Ask the kids breaking rocks by the roadside to smile, you come back here and tell me what they say

  7. It is very good that PF has been infiltrated by MMD.Let the MMD bring back the prosperity that we used to enjoy under their rule. What a grave mistake we made!

  8. Well he has to command respect for members to respect him but eating mangos from the roadside! Awe mwe

    • Ilya yali ya sana! It was as though no one had a knife for him to cut up that mango. Ukulya mango tatukanya, nomba imilile. Eagle-Eagle style, yaba! Yalikosa kuli ba Lungu.

    • Eagle Eagles (Kaponyas) are the people that he (Lungu) relies on for votes and he just wanted to demonstrate to them that he is their kind by eating the mango the eagle eagle way. They (kaponyas) really appreciated it.

    • @Kaputo Davies but remember Kaponyas in their dreams also aspire to be presidents and they have characteristics they admire in that aspiration.
      ” When I become president I will be eating mangoes by the roadside ” certainly isn’t one of them

  9. Respect is EARNED not called for or forced, if the fools have realized that what serious Zambians have been telling them makes sense, they can no longer respect the undeserving one. Kwasila.

  10. I for one am happy MMD has taken over key ministries in government. Having no RB as president, but having MMD rule with Lungu is a blessing. Would you want Davis Mwila and Chishimba Kambwili as ministers again? No and no please na masuku pa mbale ( with delicious masuku on a plate ). Let the PF batter themselves as we the FDD plot to take over in by elections and 2021.

    Viva president Nawakwi.

  11. Of course the man is wet and has zero ability! It’s being Bemba that landed him the post after dropping from parliamentary polls for lack of a Grade 12 certificate, too little education. Had he been called Mwindwa, Mwiinde etc, he wouldn’t have been SG. Only last week, Chimbwili walked all over him like he was a doormat and he allowed it with a smile on his silly ? face!

  12. We must be very careful what we allow to wield power in the corridors of state in Zambia. Chiluba was clearly an Iturian forest Pygmy with an insatiable fetish for stealing! Chimbwili has a cunning semblance to an alpha silverback gorilla ? & his manners are clearly baboonic. It looks like as long an any ape is Luunda or Bemba & it’s a politician, it always lands in power in Zambia. Look at Nkandu Luo, I wholly disagree she is fully evolved as a human being, awe sure, too ugly!

  13. ahhh! those from MMD or those bought from UPND can go straight to the top but those dropped within PF must restart from grassroots! Sounds very PF

  14. Never demand ‘Respect’…..Earn it!! What has Lungu done in the interest of Zambia to deserve the respect you are making reference to iwe Mwila? You lot in government are a joke and the sad thing is that the joke is no longer funny because people’s lives are at stake because of your inability to make decisions for the betterment of our country but yourselves. Why not just crawl back into your holes and stay there until someone with a brain materialises to leader our country. Right now Zambia is better off being governed Secondary School Head Teachers or Higher Education Principals!!!

  16. @ dan biloko I couldn’t agree more it is a reflection of a leader HH for instance by appointing GBM running mate reflects the values he holds for his life and direction. Now we all know GBM is n record that his business did better when he was in government…
