The National Democratic Congress says it has no immediate intentions to get into an alliance with the UPND.

UPND Deputy Secretary General Patrick Mucheleka recently disclosed that the party will explore possibilities of forming an alliance with the NDC.

But NDC Secretary General Mwenya Musenge said the party has never engaged in any talks with the UPND on prospects to explore a possible alliance.

Mr Musenge said talk that the NDC should venture into a working pact with the Upnd are premature.

“As NDC, we urge all our members countrywide to therefore ignore such discourse. All our members countrywide should instead preoccupy themselves mobilizing structure’s in their respective localities,” Mr Musenge said.

He said the NDC has high chances of forming Government in 2021 as a single entity going by the support it is receiving countrywide.

Mr Musenge said the NDC has continued receiving overwhelming response from all corners of Zambia, an indication that the party has been well received.

“We also want to state that the NDC has never engaged in talks with the Upnd leadership on a possible alliance. As NDC, we therefore like to bring this discourse to an end. However, we appreciate the gesture by our colleagues in Upnd for opening up suggestions for a possible alliance with the NDC.”

    • Mucheleka doesn’t fit in UPND, nothing in common about him. But he is definitely a NDC natural member.

    • ITS NOT EASY TO BE IN OPPOSITION BA NDC ASK GUY SCOTT AND HH. YOU HAVE JUST STARTED OTHERWISE I WISH YOU WELL. YOU WILL NOT HAVE ALL THE PROVINCES BEHIND YOU WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD BUT I FEEL THE STEP YOU HAVE TAKEN IS KILLING PF THE HARDEST.

    • And who would be the leader of that alliance if ever materializes? For sure I don’t see CK accepting playing third in line to HH and GBM. Because we know that HH’s ego can not allow him to play second to anybody. So is CK going to accept being deputy to HH? If that is even possible because there is GBM lurking in in the shadows waiting for his chance. And therein lies the “power tag of war” of the century if ever the alliance succeeds in the election….it would consume their entire term in office/Govt.

      For this reason the saying: THE DEVIL YOU KNOW IS BETTER THAN THE DEVIL YOU DON’T is quite appropriate. Avoid experiments Zambians, or you may end up regretting.

  1. A cat and a mouse can never work together. Any alliance UPND has gone into has never worked because their boss always wants the top position.

  2. How do you know you are popular, until you have a test of elections, by the way popularity doesn’t matter in Zambia, ECZ determines results if elections, ask UPND, even courts don’t help.

  3. Its good that NDC has realised in good time that the Under 5 is hell bent only on abusing others to escort him to State House, if at all that is possible. The fact is neither the NDC nor the now dead UPND has the capacity to unseat the PF in the next 10 years. What NDC needs to focus on is to build their foundation so that they can share the spoils in the UPND strongholds.
    Fact, President Lungu and PF will retain power in 2021 because everything is in place and people wont vote on promises but on what PF will be pointing at, (Sontapo again)!
    Politics of rhetoric are long gone and for one to win the elections, there should be compelling reasons beyond anyone’s doubt, that the game.
    PF has serious developmental projects lined up for completion before 2020, so on what basis will the…

  4. Paipa pano….kekekekeke…..have you heard Spaka like lilo?NDC cannot go into an alliance with a tonga party upnd!!!

    One thing HH must know is the 3 top leaders of NDC (Kambwili,Musenge and Eric Chanda) are bemba and have nothing to do with UPND!!in 2021 if no party gets 50% + 1 and NDC is among the top 3,it would be easy for Kambwili to team up with PF than HH’s upnd!!Kambwili’s blood is more PF than upnd.thats why i laugh at blind dreamers in upnd who think that CK can work with HH.its not easy!!
    Kambwili told you that tongas would rather vote for HH than JESUS-hope you now understand what CK meant!!
    WELL DONE MUSENGE!!HH THINKS HE CAN USE OTHER TRIBES TO ENTER STATE HOUSE-IT WONT WORK!!

    • This guy is not stupi.d, he knows announcing an allience now would only take the foot off the petro by his supporters……NDC are right to want to explore possibilities right until the end…then they will realise they need an allience……my take is pf and lungu will go begging NDC so they stay in some sort of power…..remember lungu does not have the 10 Billion US to play with that he had……..things are different , all this will depend on CK…….i think CK will be the kingmaker or papett master..

    • @ NJMBU.
      YOU ARE COLLECT AND CK’S BLOOD IS PF AND WOULD NOT LIKE THE PARTY HE SUFFRED FOR WITH THE LATE MCS LOOSE ELECTIONS.UPND HAVE GOT A BIG MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB IN 2021 AND THAT IS WHY THEY WANT NDC.
      IF THE RERUN WILL OCCUR IN 2021,I CAN NOT DOUBT SEEING KAMBWII WORKING WITH PF.ALL WHAT KAMBWILI WILL DEMAND FROM LUNGU IS NOT TO ENTERTAIN CORRUPTION AND DO AWAY WITH CORRUPT INDIVIDUALS.

  5. UPND and NDC are already in an alliance. The NDC is dismantling the PF on behalf of UPND who have remained intact

  6. Has anything to do with hh ever worked?? What has hh offered?? N/Western province is feeling the weight of the tongas after hoping they will be in the forefront with them. You think these greedy corrupt bembas in NDC don’t know how hh and the tongas operate???? Kambwili can only agree to an alliance IF he is made president, FULL STOP!!!!!

    • Going CK outburst, CK refused to work with PF or even forming an alliance with PF because according to him PF is the dirty party.
      You guys you seem to be More tribal than realistic of problems we face as a country. If you talk like hating Tongas, where is our moto; one Zambia one Nation?

  7. Both NDC and UPND overate themselves and this has made HH stagnant in political mud.
    Just a passing comment, I don’t evisage fouth mouthed Kambwili winning an election in 2021. He’s disrespectiful to the people aound him more so with opposing views, and does not follow the golden rule of the Bible that “when the right hand gives let not the left hand know.” He revealed in press briefing he bought toilet rolls for Mumbi Phiri when she was struggling financially.

  8. That can’t work, just continue trying on your own as NDC. I can’t imagine HH working together with Kambwili. HH needs only those people who are ready to be overshadowed like G. Nkombo. Kambwili want to be in front as well. That was the main reason he was fired by ECL to avoid competition for the top position. I personally like people who embrace competition not these guys who are afraid of competition like HH and ECL. I believe in the “lets the best man win” theory not shielding capable leaders for personal glory.

  9. I think people in NDC are very dull, what makes them think forming government is such an easy thing! Those young people following them all over are not even registered voters, that’s how strategically poor they are! Kind people have tried to tell them that it took Micheal Sata 10 years to form government, and one of the positives to Sata’s victory was Rupiah Banda himself for showing none committal to development programs! And he lost it on that, remember it was very close! In Africa it is not easy to unsit a sitting president , especially if he’s performing like Edgar Lungu! And those insults from Kambwili, who will be interested in a president with a foul mouth! What country can it turn out to be?

  10. This is like being rejected by a beautiful lady who is clever enough to realise that you intend to defile her virginity. Painful for h.h and mucheleka and others.
    And today h.h tells gullible cheering primitive tribesmates in Mungule that if he was in power he would buy equipment which can forecast the weather accurately one year in advance and avoid drought. Now h.h in the country of Donald Trump weather related disasters have been occurring for many years, you tell me that you and upndees are more sophisticated than the mighty USA who can even.look at their country from the international space station? And the cheering crowd, you mean this tribe has chosen to remain in ngombe ilede era?

  11. NDC IS ACTUALLY PAVING WAY FOR AN EASY RUN OF UPND OVER PF BECAUSE UPND GRASS SUPPORT IS STILL INTACT WHILE THAT OF PF IS BEING DISMANTLED BY NDC WHICH IS FORMER PF SUPPORT AND ITS NOT POSSIBLE FOR NDC TO WIN IN 2021,MAY THE BEST STRATEGIC PARTY WIN IN 2021.
