The Patriotic Front is disappointed by the South African DA and EFF Party’s inability to comprehend how the Zambian justice system works before issuing out unpalatable remarks against Zambia’s duly elected President Edgar Lungu.

PF Deputy Spokesperson Mumbi Phiri says as a party, the PF is perturbed at how the DA and EFF have allowed themselves to be toiled by the whims of a disgruntled opposition who want to undermine the will of the Zambian people.

Below id the full statement

THE PATRIOTIC FRONT DEPUTY GENERAL SECRETARY ADOPTS ANC YOUTH LEAGUE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE MEMBER COMRADE SIFISO MSTWENI’S STATEMENT AS SHE ADVISES THE SOUTH AFRICAN OPPOSITION DA AND EFF AGAINST ILL-ADVISED COMMENTS ON ISSUES BEFORE THE ZAMBIAN COURTS

The Patriotic Front is disappointed by the South African DA and EFF Party’s inability to comprehend how the Zambian justice system works before issuing out unpalatable remarks against Zambia’s duly elected President His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu. As a party we are perturbed at how the DA and EFF have allowed themselves to be toiled by the whims of a disgruntled opposition who want to undermine the will of the Zambian people.

The Opposition UPND has shown recklessness in their failure to explain simple civics to their opposition counterparts in South Africa. The opposition UPND are power hungry perpetual failures whose appetite for unlawful behaviour has been condemned by a cross section of civil society, traditional leaders, Church leaders and Zambians at large.

Let me also place on record that I have adopted ANC Youth League National Executive Member Sifiso Mtsweni as my own, and thank him for his support to Mother Zambia. Reactionary forces from other countries aligned to Opposition UPND are misrepresenting Zambia. Sadly we have thugs masquerading as leaders of a named Opposition Party, which seeks to see anarchy in Zambia to the extent of seeking to collide with the Presidential motorcade. Every meaningful friend of Zambia must condemn such provocative, barbaric and thuggish acts!

The Patriotic Front on the other hand is a duly elected, law abiding, unifying political party that enjoys massive support from the Zambian people. Our people respects the rule of law and wishes to commend His Excellency the President of Zambia Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu for defending the rule of law by not interfering in Court Cases. Attempts by the Opposition UPND and their misguided allies across the borders are an exercise in futility.

We strongly advise the DA and EFF to take a cue from the various reputable international bodies that monitored the Zambian elections and deemed them free and fair. They must also learn from credible international institutions such as the British High Commissioner Fergus Cochrane Dyet who condemned the provocative nature of HH and his minions in Mongu where they shamelessly attempted to undermine the Zambian government.

Let me commend the civil society, the international organisations and foreign Governments that have rendered solidarity to his Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

I would like to lastly want to announce that the Party will also write to former Copperbelt Minister Hon Mwenya Musenge to show cause why he should not be disciplined by the Party for his unwarranted statements in the media, considering that he is a senior member of the party familiar with the channels of communication.

I thank You!

Hon. Mumbi Phiri
Deputy Secretary General

  1. Hon.Mumbi Phiri,just ignore those one man opposition parties of South Africa.PF deals with the ruling ANC party which has support from majority South Africans.

    HH asked for that in Mongu so now he must dance to his tune in Chimbokaila.

    People must answer this simple question “if HH goes unpunished for blocking presidential motorcade,then how many Zambians will be paving way for the presidential motorcade in future?”NOBODY.then “is that the Zambia you need with no respect for the office of the president?”.BIG NO!!

    THEN COURTS MUST DO THE RIGHT THING IN HH’S MONGU CASE TO AVOID SUCH NONSENSE IN THE FUTURE-SIMPLE!!

    • The Catholic Bishops through their pastoral letter have given a comprehensive assessment of how the Judiciary in Zambia works…It is an open secret that the Judiciary have let the country down by failing to stand up to political manipulation and corruption. How can one explain the failure of the Constitutional Court to hear and exhaustively conclude a presidential petition? We reiterate what we said before: “For some time now, there has been a persistent discourse on the state of the judiciary in Zambia with respect to its independence and impartiality. This situation has undermined public confidence in this institution. There is need to restore confidence in this important arm of Government. There are also many unresolved questions of public interest that have been left hanging and…

    • Mumbi Phiri. What an example to women. Very shameful and embrassing. Madam please don’t try defend wrong thing. Everyone knows Lungu did not win on a clean slate. He manipulated the system and is scared of the petition. Let your Lungu go and prove himself in court instead of arresting people on fake charges. South African and the whole continent at large know what happened.

    • Madam, Kindly enjoy the tempo of peace in Zambia and apply some temperament in politicking. What is stunning though is the fact that UPND has found comfort in the solidarity of eccentric characters with emotions governed minds. Out of all parties only to be associated with a Boers’ party and Malema. Why is UPND so obsessed with such miscreants?

    • @Peter, you may be too ensconced in your English pub to realise that Mumbwe Fhili wears a rosary and Catholic Women’s League chitenges. She is the one who drabs Lungu to Catholic Churches where he dances with total abandon energy time a hymn is sunny or bells sounded during Eucharist. Lungu and Mumbwe have put themselves under the eye of the church and are answerable to it even though Lungu is Daesh.

  4. Popi Njimbu, the best you can do is keep your stinking mouth completely shut, than allowing your dirty mouth vomit rubbish worse than Mumbi’s unbrushed mouth’s scent. Are you aware that ANC like UNIP have had their miserable days numbered? Do they not support the corrupt stupid and uneducated Zuma even when evidence of corrupt activities are clear for all serious SA’s to see?

  5. It is SAs interest to condemn dictatorships in Africa.. ..they don’t want another Zimbabwe with millions of refugees pouring over their boarders.. ..already zambians claiming asylum in S.A. are at record highs according to the Zambian HC.

    The mere fact the British HC took time to comment on HH and meet membe shows this is not an internal issue any more.
    Hint: if the UK HC had said that is an internal Zambian matter for GRZ then lungu had the green light.
    The UK HC even mentioned the UK being on the IMF board and they turn Zambia down for a loan and the kaponyas still think the UK supports their crackdown on democracy ???

    Keep dreaming…..you not arresting membe after your fake warrant for his political arrest is not enough…..

    • Which Zambians are seeking asylum in RSA?? As far as I can remember, even the friends I was with in college that migrated to RSA are now returning to invest and run businesses here in Zambia, so who is seeking asylum??? Maybe those Tonga cowards who perpetrated the Namwala violence?? Then you think m’membe’s arrest warrant is fake? You thought the same with hh, it is only time, he will face the law as well because he is a criminal…

  6. Mumbi Phiri is the Vote Thief caught by Mwaliteta and others with fake Ballot Papers rigging the 2016 Election. Lungu is blocking the Petition Hearing becoz the Rigging would reveal how the PF rigged the Election. What was the Ugandan Emmanuel Chavula doing in the ECZ Server Room? COSATU, DA ,EFF and other Opposition Parties in South Africa should demonstrate in Durban should Chakolwa Lungu attend the World Economic Forum. # Free HH and let the Petition be heard in Court.

  10. The job description of every opposition party is to oppose the party in power and it’s government. However, I would have supported HH if he was arrested for revelling corruption done by members of parliament. The man HH is too dull that he can’t even capitalise on some of the issues revealed by the media with regard to Chishimba Kambwili those mansions he has built using stolen money and land. This could have helped him to win copperbelt province because once you destroy kambwili u are done with Cb.

    Seriously HH is a thieve who has stolen and robbed copperbelt province and so he can’t challenge kambwili. These two are the same.

    EFF and DA only make sense to people who can’t remember history. EFF flights ANC because they were chased and that is anger which has nothing to do with…

  12. Your evil plan is to find HH guilty using rotten judiciary & let Lungu pardon him in exchange for recognition. Then lungu will score points & go for an illegal 3rd Term. HH is principled, he’ll never bow down to your golden statue, lungu.

    EFF & DA know that their democracy is not primitive as to wish someone to be sentenced to DEATH over a minor traffic offence.

    With a brutal primitive police force & rotten corrupt judiciary & a st!nky ECZ your PF have managed to fraudulently remain in Govt. You scramble for recognition, that’s why you wish HH will bow down to your lungu.

    Just like Unip & MMD came & went, so will PF. There’s no wamu-yayaya in Zambian politics. Go ask KK or RB. You’ll answer for your transgressions soon.

  14. At first when HH was arrested, i felt sorry for Mrs Mutinta Hichilema,but after i saw her arrogance and lies,i concluded that she is just like any tonga who supports upnd based on tribe!!to any upnd member,HH is a saint.he does not make mistakes.but is this normal thinking?

    I have been voting for PF since 2006,but when PF leaders do wrong things,we blame them.for upnd,its a taboo to blame HH.

    Honestly,can a normal person support HH’s bad behaviour in Mongu?or the brutal way ZP acted at HH’s house?guys we must be serious in life.if HH blocked the presidential motorcade in any western country,today he would be history.THIS IS THE GOSPEL TRUTH AND NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT!!

Judges are supposed to manage their courts so that they can hear the evidence and counter arguments and deliver a verdict, all within the set time.

    • The UPND Petition was “dismissed” on a 14 day technicality which is illegal at Law. To make matters worse 14 days in terms of the law is 14 working days ending 8th Sept 2016. Concourt has no powers to dismiss the Petition without hearing and determining it. Court was supposed to declare a Winner but they failed to do so. Concourt also forgot that the old Bill of Rights still exist and the High Court administers it and that Petitioners have Rights to be heard in Court. Lungu refused to handover the Presidency to the Speaker of Parliament during the Petition Hearing process. Another illegality.

    We the ordinary people all this sophisticated rhetoric is aimed at are not fooled, but there needs to be strong action by legitimate gov’ts in the region to head off these groups. Mostly funded by outside Africa money men to cause mayhem in Africa creating a smokescreen intended to seize power.

My advice is that Hon Mumbi Phiri must be very diplomatic in commenting on such issues.
