Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) Vice President Inonge Wina says the party has continued to promote intra-party democracy and urged opposition parties to emulate PF in deepen democracy in the country.

Mrs. Wina, who is also Republican Vice President, noted with sadness that some named opposition political party leaders have never sought mandate from their members through elective conventions hence lacks credentials of being democrats.

The PF Vice President was speaking when she officially opened the first ever One Day Lusaka Province Patriotic Front Committee Consultative Meeting in Chongwe District under the theme: “How best can we mobilise our party in the Province.”

She implored PF members to ensure that intra-party democracy continues to thrive in the party and praised them for growing the party to its current state.

The PF Vice President noted that the party has continued to demonstrate that intra-party democracy canbe achieved hence the need to be inclusive by welcoming more people in the “Boat”.

She further noted that politics is about numbers therefore, the party needs to recruit new members if it’s to continue winning future elections.

Mrs. Wina however, cautioned members to be mindful that the country is operating in a multiparty system where divergent views are respected in line with tenets of democracy.

“Let us all rise up to support our hardworking Party and Republican President (Edgar Lungu) who has demonstrated that with a vision and focus Zambia can once more become a prosperous and middle income country by 2030,”she said.

The Vice President noted that the 2020 PF General Conference is meant for organizational renewal to make it more transformational hence there’s no need for members to start sowing seeds of discord.

She called on the rank and file to remain steadfast, disciplined and united in diversity if the party is to avoid an unnecessary conflicts from within.

Mrs. Wina urged PF members to welcome and embrace new members if the party is to remain strong, competitive and attractive in readiness for future elections.

“As we meet to mobilise ourselves into an energetic force in the province, let us make that solemn pledge to commit ourselves to abide by the aims and objectives of the party of participating actively without motives of material or personal gain,” she advised.

“This is what our founding President Michael Chilufya Sata stood for. This is what President Edgar Lungu has continued to promote because it’s part of who we are as a party.

“We must also remember that we need to mobilise the party not just for the sake of it but as a vehicle of carrying out the aspirations of the Zambian people.”

The PF Vice President pointed out that PF is a vehicle that must continue to assure and re-assure Zambians of all ages and gender that it is unstoppable in its continued quest to develop the country.

Earlier, Chongwe Member of Parliament Japhen Mwakalombe praised government for rolling out massive infrastructure development in the Chongwe District, in particular and Lusaka Province as a whole.

Mr. Mwakalombe who is also Lusaka Province Minister, said the expansion of the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, the construction of the first ever Lusaka Specialised Hospital and the expansion of the Great East Road into a dual carriage way is testimony of government’s commitment of uplifghting the plight of Zambians.

The Chongwe Law Maker revealed that in 2018 government will tar 20 KM of township roads aimed at accelerating the new municipality status of Chongwe.

And speaking at the same event, PF Lusaka Province chairperson Horrace Longwe said the party in the province is intact and ready to face the opposition in future elections.

Mr. Longwe reiterated his call for opposition political parties claiming popularity to be brave enough and call for elections in their parties prove to Zambians that they can win even in their own political parties.

He stated that it is strange that some political party leaders that have never gone through an election in their own parties want to claim to be more popular among Zambians.

Chongwe MP, Japhen Mwakalombe, Chawama MP, Lawrence Sichalwe, Luapula MP, Emerine Kabanshi and Munali MP, Professor Nkandu Luo attended the meeting.

The One Day Lusaka Province Committee Patriotic Front Party (PF) Consultative Meeting is expected to come up with resolutions which will be submitted to the Central Committee, for possible considering.

The meeting has also attracted all PF MPs, Mayors, Chairpersons, Councillors, Constituency, District and other party officials in the province.

Lusaka Province has 14 constituencies with Lusaka District leading with 7 while Kafue,Shibuyunji and Chirundu with one each.

The rest are Chongwe, Rufunsa, Luangwa and Chilanga respectively.

    • Sakwiba Sikota was chased with pangas by UPND cadres when he tried to stand against Kaponya (HH).

      (HH) stood against a frog. In other words he was appointed by Ackson Sejane and Mutinta Mazoka.

    • Hehehehe and this convention was forced on them by Guy Scott if you recall for some of u claiming to represent history well the PF clique which was for Lungu including madam wina herself had already decided for a sole candidate Lungu…. And their excuse at the time was monetary as well as little time left to campaign. So Scott gave them some semblance of democratic credence which in fact they don’t have.

  2. Gogo Wina, are you serious? E. Chakolwa Lungu has self-confessed that he is a visionless man. Moreover, the man spends valuable time squandering resources, flying to ceremonies he could reserve/delegate juniors. An incompetent clueless individual–the most ever from Zambia/Africa–can not turn Zambia into midddle income status in 13 years. That is beyond E. Chakolwa Lungu’s pay grade and intellectual policy platform. He could not turn his de-registered law firm into anything in 1 year–and now Gogo Wina expects ECL to attempt miracles that would redefine Zambia in 13 years? Oh my foot!.

  3. @ divide & rule, if you did not understand what happened ask Guy Scott to explain to you. They started with provincial committees, they went for Lungu, then went for Central committee, it went for Lungu. Then they called delegates. When they felt Lungu was going to win, they came up with fake list of delegates, that was also rejected. Scott and the cartel were responsible for the Kabwe mess. Leave Lungu alone.

  6. It is very clear that Halpha Homega (HH) has never won an election in his miserable pathetic life of failure.

    In UPND he was appointed by Mutinta Mazoka and Ackson Sejane. They even chased Sakwiba Sikota.

    2006, 2008, 2011, 2015, 2016, 2021 the morron can’t win a national election.

    11 years as UPND mis Leader without a vision.

    You can understand why he fears a UPND convention like the plague. Too many smart youngsters to replace him.

    Failure (HH) No democratic credentials whatsoever.

    • It is HH’s democratic right to contest for the presidency as long as the party desires so.How sure are you that HH lost the elections?The elections were characterised by vote rigging,Kalululshi,Lundazi,Lusaka.HH won these elections and you know it from the bottom of your tribalistic heart.You hate HH because he is Tonga.If he was mubemba or Chewa ,he would have been president by now.You hate HH with a passion because he used his brains intelligently to bulit his bussiness empire unlike you who wants to think you a clever on Social Media.You are just a pathetic tribalistic demon possessedd cadre

    Well said bro. Even if there was confusion, atleast Lungu and his group went for convention. HH means 33 degree Mason, devil worshiper.

  9. Ignorance. Who ever told Zambians that Freemasons are devil worshippers is a LIAR. You google something and you automatically think its true? Shame. For your information Freemasonry is about brotherhood, tolerance of all religious faiths, non tribal, non racial with principles of morality, fidelity and charity. Sorry but the devil is a LIAR

    • The devil is a liar?
      The devil has not uttered a word yet. Everything you claim to know about the devil is coming from God.

      So far the story is one sided(?)

      Logically speaking, devil is the mask God wears to do evil things to the human animal.

      Think on this:
      God rewards you for doing godly things
      Devil rewards you for doing devilish things

      God punishes you for doing devilish things.
      Devil does not punish you for doing godly things.

      The word punishment implies causing pain. It is therefore devilish. God acts devilish when he punishes you for doing devilish things. He is acting from the devil’s camp. You see that? But according to God, the devil is incapable of acting from God’s camp. But he does? He rewards. The word reward implies to give something good. So even…

  10. A party as a closed club decides whether to go for a convention or not. If they have a popular candidate to float, that is their business. However some conventions are nothing but kindergarden kangaroo gatherings where the electorate is requested to lift their hands at Panga point. Meanwhile there is a simultaneous convention. Then respective winners of simultaneous conventions go to court until one of them is bribed. is that democracy? Awe. We dont care what happens at party level, but at national level, there is a constitution to follow which you are failing to follow. Ba Mama tell the truth and ensure your party abides by the constitution.

    • This is a silly argument. Why are we being so gullible? That is the ‘Wamuyaya’ syndrome that was consigned to the catacombs of oblivion. As a minimum, a true democrat who aspires for the highest office in the land needs to subject themselves to the basic tenets of democracy even within their own party. Otherwise you might end up electing a person who becomes a dictator and abolishes elections at national level because he is “popular.”

  12. And Mr. Kudos HH went for a convention before the 2011 elections. No one challenged him, even 2018 they are going and he has asked party members to challenge him. The only problem I see is that upnd depends on HH’s money and connections. My assumption is if he goes the party goes into oblivion

  13. Team Edgar, u are wrong! George w Bush is a free mason and he ruled USA. Its ignorance that makes pipo have wild conclusion. Free masonry has nothing to do with satanism. Its an organisation that has a set of beliefs that they follow. It actually recognises people of all religions.

  15. Spaka tell these PF cadres they are so consumed with HH such that they cannot sleep. The whole PF government has nothing to offer but talk about HH wasting precious time pretty soon it will be 5 years and you fools would have done nothing. You should be afraid of people instead of HH because in 2021 you have to convince them to sign up for five more years of misery which is not easy as most have lost confidence in you

  16. I just keep wondering why the UPND in its 16years of existence has failed to win an election.
    We all know UPND was formed by a freemason.
    My question is why did Mazoka quit freemasonry when he decided to stand for the presidency?
    The business of UPND cadres to come and speak for freemasonry here on this blog is shameful.
    How can a Christian nation have a freemason as its leader?
    Are we serious or simply desperate?
    Let UPND go for a convention and confirm to our nation their commitment to have us led by a person whose character is highly questionable-tribalism,privatization,paradise papers,freemasonry etc
