Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has advised former Chongwe Member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo to stop misleading the nation on key national issues.

Mrs. Phiri says the PF is focused on developing Zambia and will not be destructed by politicians pursuing selfish political interests at the expense of national development.

She was reacting to reports attributed to Ms Masebo suggesting that there will be NO elections in 2021 without the planned dialogue.

Mrs. Phiri said the PF is ready to dialogue with anyone but will not seat and dialogue with people who have continued disrespecting the Head of State.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Phiri is saddened with reports from Lusaka’s Mtendere Township where about 20 pupils have been sent home for failure to pay school fees.

She said it is sad that some people are tarnishing government’s image and efforts towards having an educated citizenry.

Among the schools she visited this morning was Chitukuko Basic School where about 20 grade 9 pupils were sent home over unpaid school fees.

  1. The election calendar is enshrined in the constitution and we have always elections whenever they fall due. If you’re not ready that’s your problem. Silvia must slowdown, she’s not the same person I used to know few years ago. She needs to find the road that leads to church and not to antagonistic politics, they’re past her time. May God show her the right path

    • She looks like one of these S#x dolls in the picture. Minister of Religion muyanganepo.
      Just posted this nonsensical comment because the topic raised in the article is just so unproductive and irrelevant to the current issues we have.

  2. At private schools when you pay your and that’s it. You will not be bothered. But for government schools, it doesn’t matter how much you’ve paid they always ask for this and that whenever there’s a program. It seems the battle for Munali will be between Bowman and Josephine Mumbi Phiri

  3. Masebo is a principled politician. She’s not like these other bootlickers who are just supporting certain parties for their stomachs. The dialogue she talked about is meant to sort out certain outstanding issues, especially electoral reforms in which it is easier for the loser to accept defeat in elections.Infact I greatly miss her valuable contributions in parliament. She is a voice for the voiceless unlike others who are just there for themselves

    • I am wondering why MPs are not taking up this issue of eletoral reforms. Matters of law are the purview of the legislature but it seems the law makers allow the usurpation by the executive.

      Kokoliko!

  4. Mr. Fan or is it Ms. Fan… There are and will be no fair elections on earth my dear as long as Satan in on earth. So forget about one accepting election results fairly. It will never happen, not even un UK or US. There are always reservations.. Even Rupia Banda cried, why? He did not accept, but just wanted things to go peacefully.

    • Even in USA the mother of democracy, no election passes without someone complaining. Just recently the losing candidate in Alabama refused to concede citing anomalies such as bussing people from outside the State.

  5. Imwe Masebo is a political failure and records are there to verify, why pay attention to such twits? I mean, she was MP for Chongwe for 10 years like her kitchen but go and see what is Chongwe, nothing! I just hope hon. Mwakalombe, the current MP is seriously working in that constituency to demonstrate the difference between serious people and jokers. Look at Palabana, it has so much potential in Livestock and other agriculture stuff but because of Masebo, the once vibrant Palabana Livestock University is almost gone to extinct and yet you want to be the leaders in beef, sheep, goat, and the rest, be serious. Ignore Masebo, she is as good as a dead log as far as we are concerned.

    • Very descriptive and insightful reality of Sylvia. Ala alipwa ulya umuntu!! She is so bitter with ECL’s PF because she was going to be the president’s chief concubine had Wynter Kabimba not been fired. But along came a chap called Chagwa from Chawama and spoilt all that…Kwekwekwekwe…..

    • 2011winner Mwakalombe was persuaded to step down to allow Masebo to become area MP. But within a short time Masebo was suspended because of abuse of office.

    • It’s not the duty of an MP to develop an area. It is the responsibility of the Executive. The MP can speak on behalf the people and highlight the problems of area, specifically, ensure that the area is included in the government’s domestic development programs. The moment you make it a job of an MP, you not only open an avenue for malfisance but also diminish the possibility for checks and balances.

    • Pupils have always been sent home since time immemorial for various reasons. It’s not like Masebo is seeing it for the first time or it’s happening because of PF. Please let’s be analytical instead of going wherever the wind blows.

  7. 8.1 Ndanje Khakis these pupils were sent home because of failing to pay school fees,the government should be trying to resolve this,we should not accept problems just because they were there before or in the past.
    poor people will always be with us so we should try our best(the government and individuals with ability to help the them) not lough them off..

  8. The issue of school fees is a thorny one in most African countries. In Zimbabwe for instance, parents who cannot afford school fees can offer livestock such as goats or sheep as payment. Last year, the country’s Education minister said schools should show flexibility when it comes to demanding school tuition fees from parents. He further said schools should accept not only livestock, but also services and skills, mostly for rural areas, but parents in towns and cities can pay through other means; for instance, doing certain work for the school.

  9. Mrs Phiri must just donate to those affected pupils instead of issueing statement. 20 pupils = small number GO help them. Venders’ children

  10. These are problems of having former call boys, former vitumbuwa sellers as minister s and MPs. There is little of substance they can discuss. I am standing this time around , enough of being led by scum
