Patriotic Front (PF) Central Province Youth Chairperson Moses Chilando has said the ruling party has noted with concern a growing trend by non-Zambians aligned to the United Party for National Development (UPND) incarcerated leader Hakainde Hichilema taking turns in throwing mud at Zambia’s enviable reputation.

Chilando was reacting to Professor Michael Wahman an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Missouri, specializes in elections, democratization and African over his recent sentiment in favour of the UPND.

He noted that the youth in PF will not allow every Tom, Dick and Harry to have a field day in tarnishing Zambia’s reputation because Zambia is a sovereign nation and the youth will not waste time talking about other Countries including the USA that Professor Wahman comes from.

Chilando has since noted that Professor Wahman’s article is full of lies, hypocrisy and carries the wrong notion that the West knows best, adding that Professor Wahman appears to assume that the only model of democracy that exists on planet earth is the American one where citizens can take turns in insulting their President.

He added that although Professor Wahman claims to be specialized in elections, democratization and Africa, his statement clearly indicates that he has failed to realize that democracy has never taken a “One-Size-Fits-All” approach.

“What makes this Professor think he is qualified to lecturer Zambians about her own democracy when decisions being taken in the case of Hakainde Hichilema are those provided for under our laws?”

“Who is this Professor to predict that Zambia will never be the same even if Hichilema is to be released?”

“Is Hakainde Hichilema the first Politician to be charged with treason in Zambia?”

“Let us point out for his uneducated position that there have been Zambians charged and others convicted for treason before, some of whom had a higher political stature than Hichilema. Did Zambia ground to a halt therefore?”

“Professor Wahman should know better that he cannot argue democracy from a “condomised” approach. Democracy as we all know is about the people, for the people and by the people – In our context, the people being the Zambian people who voted for President Edgar Lungu on 11th August 2016” Chilando said

    WHEN I TELL PEOPLE THAT A CAR IS AS DRUNK AS THE DRIVER, THIS IS WHAT I MEAN. THERE IS NOTHING THE PF WILL NOT RESPOND TO, UNFORTUNATELY. THERE IS ALSO NO ORDER, THERE IS NO CONSULTATION. AND I URGE DRUNK LUNGU TO SOBER UP FOR ONCE SO THAT HE DOES NOT ONLY QUICKLY DISASOCIATE THE GOVERNMENT FROM KELVIN SAMPA’S STATEMENT, BUT LET SAMPA WITHDRAW SUCH RUBBISH FORTH WITH. AMOS CHANDA, WHERE ARE YOU GUYS, ..PLEASE ASK LUNGU TO BAN JIM AND JACK FROM RESPONDING TO HIGH PROFILE COMMENTS. EU, UN, US, UK, JAPAN ARE USEFUL PARTNERS TO ZAMBIA AND CAN ONLY BE RESPONDED BY MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS IF THE PRESIDENT IS BUSY.

      A political party that fails to build a critical mass from among the voters but thrives on none voting foreigners and their agenda, can forget dreaming about a ruling mandate in Zambia. Learn from Changirai and Odinga for all their futile crusades against their countries in foreign capitals. Elections are won by winning heart, souls and the conscious of the voting citizens you are belaboring to hurt.

    Mr. Chilando attributes his sentiments to PF and “ruling party” does this mean that the Central Committee of PF, including the President and Secretary General is endorsing this press release?

    Well articukated,why is this same failed professor failing to voice out against Donald Trump? Trump has mistreated a lot of people since getting to power including the media, Hollywood, he publicly refused to greet a black pastor who be called filthy who needed to be cleansed. Where was that professor? He has simply been bribed by freemansons to drop this nonsense. KK is the father of the nation, a tittle that freemanson will never attain, he was arrested on treason charges by FTJ, did Zambia not stay the same? Who is this failure

    The Cockroach Brexit High Commissioner who encouraged Dictator Lungu to arrest and imprison HH on trumped up Treason charges should be recalled from Zambia. He made careless and irresponsible Statement on a very sensitive issue b4 any investigations took place. It now turns out the Motorcade Incident was not investigated and HH was framed for a Treason charge. This Cockroach Dyet must apologize to HH and the UPND Family for inciting the Dictator to arrest our HH on Trumped Up Treason charges. The Brexit Envoy must Exit Zambia b4 Angry Zambians linch him for his irresponsible comments on HH. The British govt should permanently recall this stupid Brexit Envoy.

    By his own admissions, Chilando has confirmed on behalf of PF that democracy is only meant for the people who voted for the PF regime in Zambia. The preceding assertion or contention is on record. That said, if the Zambian democracy is selective and biased towards those who voted for the PF regime, the question that becomes is; is the application of the concept of democracy in Zambia worthy of that which reflects the tenets of liberty. If Chilando’s statements are paraphrased, they collectively connote that only PF members are entitled to Zambian democracy. That said; how does the PF regime define those Zambians who never voted for Lungu? By Chilando’s own admissions, UNPD and many other Zambians other than PF members do not enjoy democratic rights. In the light of such reckless…

    In the light of such reckless statements and verbosity, every civilised person has a right to make pronouncements about the PF madness. Thus, nationality is irrelevant. VIVA HH AND UPND. This synopsis of my analysis leads me to assert that brother HH is accused of false offences on the basis of political persecutions and, lack of democratic ethos. In furtherance to the above, the recent acquittal of brother HH, confirms that HH and others are innocent. The court findings are derivatives of lengthy and coherent arguments in which flawed state evidence was cross examined and punctured. The evidence which was tendered by the prosecutors was tried and rejected by the court concerned. This is an embarrassment on the part of the PF. Viva HH AND UPND.

    It is Edgar Lungu who is turnishing the image of Zambia due to his selfishness, not those foreign nationals you ate accusing. Lungu should clean off his own dirt. Lungu has made our country Zambia a very bad country to live in.

    PF. You have a declared presidency. You have won.

    Why are you acting so jittery and worried. Why all the hysteria over HH. Why try fight the whole world media ?

    The loser should be panicking

    Your language doesnt exude confidence.

    HH walking out of court .,.. now thats confidence. Him consoling his wife, him praying, him waving to his supporters and still smiling. Not breaking down and sobbing like a 5 time loser !

    If its body language, hes beating you hands down !!

      @Mwape, if you have PF insiders along your friends, please advise them accordingly. PF are increasingly behaving like losers. This is the problem of a stolen victory. You cannot enjoy it. It is called a Pyrrhic victory for a reason.

    The pf will not have every Tom Dick or Harry having a field day tarnishing zambia’s reputation……..
    Yet the Government lets any Tom Dick or Harry from a political party respond at an international level .
    In diplomacy in the international community any response should be coming from the GOVERNMENT

      PF are their own worst enemy. Now they are under siege and they have nobody else to blame but themselves. HH is not one man but represents half of Zambia that does not support Lungu. Very soon HH will represent even PF cadres like Mwenya Musenge who do not agree with Lungu’s style of leadership.

  16. vote

    PF has failed to browbeat Zambians and Lungu clearly saw that on the Limulunga Road. That’s why he has admitted that Zambia is divided, quite unprecedented for a so-called national leader. Now he is finding that the whole world is on the side of HH instead.
