The opposition UPND says the ruling Patriotic Front has been sent panicking after being exposed by the African Liberal Network (ALN) for their dictatorship, abuse of human rights and corruption.

The ALN released a resolution at the weekend that denounced dictatorship in Zambia which upset the PF and in response accused the Liberals of meeting in Accra to talk about homosexuality.

A UPND delegate who attended the meeting, Charles Kakoma said the issue of homosexuals and lesbians was not on the agenda and was never discussed.

Mr Kakoma who is also UPND Spokesman said what appeared to have annoyed the PF was the resolution on bad political governance in Zambia which the African Liberal Network issued.

He said the deliberations of the General Assembly of the Africa Liberal Network were live on Twitter and documented on other media for anyone to follow.

Mr Kakoma said it was trash journalism for the PF to try to manipulate the statement from Africa Liberal Network by infusing in homosexuality to suit the PF agenda on propaganda.

Mr Kakoma said the injustices being committed by the PF and it’s government are being noticed by the world and no amount of denial or propaganda will help the PF.

“There were three resolutions and one declaration passed. These resolutions were on the political situation in Zambia, the political situation in Somalia and the effect of climate change in South Africa. The declaration was on Africa embracing market economics,” Mr Kakoma said.

  1. Me thinks UPND is denying and protesting too much on this issue. Their overboard denial and protesting has now gotten my attention. I smell some rotten thing in the background.

    • The homos story is a Sunday Chanda’s imagination. Sunday may actually be gay, watch him carefully

    • The most nicest people you can ever meet are of the same sex ie gays

      To be honest these people MUST be accepted in Zambia because some people are born with sexuality that prefers the same gender
      Also I hate the word homosexuals, gays, lesbian is better
      They are born that way.
      Believe me from personal experience, when I spoke to Nick’s friend he said he first started experimenting,He realized that he liked guys much more than girls. He never chose for that to happen to him
      Also I don’t think that sexual conversion is possible in my own opinion, but I think that would be wrong to try and change someone for who they really are.

      I would strongly suggest we accept them in Zambia, its ignorant to turn them away. Europe does why not poor Zambia?
      Thanks

    • For some of us who are progressives & open minded to support any party we get offended by careless lies. Please stop defending what is an open secret. Go to the website for ALN & there are many statements there where gay rights are supported & part of the agenda for ALN. In fact the latest official statement was posted by Luke Akal (ALN Coordinator) on 15 August 2016. Fortunately, Zambia is God country & whatever God rejects Zambia rejects also. So please disassociate yourselves from this ungodly network immediately. God Bless Zambia

    • Ba Mushota, dont be this shallow is your reasoning…. Ati “Europe does why not poor Zambia”? Meaning whatever a rich person does is the correct thing te? …a wealthy person shi**ing in public is a cool thing; but utterly unacceptable for a poor guy to do the same tefyo? (Ati iyo, balekeni banye babili balikwata ulupiya…) Stop being smart for nothing on this specific issue.

    • UPND pliz , pliz ! Come out from this fellowship,we know their major agenda . Mind you, birds of same feathers fly together. My fear is that this fellowship will
      bring a big dent on this big political party(UPND)which will make PF stronger and win
      by atleast 65% in 2021.

    • Obatala – You do not seem to know that gay rights is a liberal agenda item. Whether it was discussed or not, that is a very important agenda item for the liberals. So, the liberals who attended this meeting need to just tell us their position on this issue.

    • Mr. Kakoma, read the ALN constitution thoroughly and what they stand for in as far as Homosexual and Lesbian rights are concerned. In case you missed it, see their definition of Minority Groups in all their writings. Check also their major sponsors and what they stand for and tell us if you are prepared to go to bed with their for the sake of gaining political power. I hope you also notice that independent thinkers and firebrands like Julius Malema and his EFF are not members of this grouping. I hope you did not sign the membership application form blindly. This information is there on the Internet.

  4. Mr Kakoma thinks we are U5.
    Who on earth doesn’t know what liberal politics is about?
    The ALN promotes lesbian,gay,bisexual,transgender(LGBT) rights,abortions and prostitution.
    It’s not a secret and they don’t need to pass a resolution.The ALN exists to promote the liberal values above.

    Its a good organization for countries like South Africa where LGBT,abortion and prostitution are legal.
    It’s a taboo for a Christian nation to even think of attending or associating with liberal politics.
    Kakoma and his UPND should have shame.

  7. The problem with upnd they think like demons have possessed their evil schemes. ALN sure is the organization you can really stand for.? Put politics aside . The organizations is funding gayism, lesbianism, promoting homosexuality,child sexual abuse and abortion rights in the name of promoting and enhancing their human rights. I wonder kakoma that he can stand up and support the unchristianity and evil schemes of the same organizations.when zodwa was banned from traveling to Namibia and Botswana the ALN organizations projected several accusations against their named countries ,even, threatening to call UN and intervene .Today in Zambia we have kakoma who wants to take advantage of masses who are no knowledge about ALN.shame upnd.

  8. “The ALN released a resolution at the weekend that denounced dictatorship in Zambia which upset the PF and in response accused the Liberals of meeting in Accra to talk about homosexuality.”

    Sound familiar? When MMD became desperate it tried to pin the homosexual tag on the PF to scare voters and distract attention from real issues of poverty, corruption, etc. Now PF is trying to do the same thing to UPND. And yet Zambia thought it voted for change… imagine.

  9. The hypocrisy by some Zambians is really nauseating. Chances are that this Sunday Chanda and many other holier-than-thou cadres who profess to be staunch Christians are engaged in some the worst sins one can imagine. Most of these are involved in rampant extra-marital affairs with several side chicks, involved in the theft of public funds, they’re kings of “JEMASON”, they hack their opponents with pangas and machetes at every election campaign etc. Ironically, they come in droves accusing their opponents of being engaged in certain sins, as if their own sins are lesser than their opponents.

  10. Ba PF, learn to accept people the way they are. Homosexuals and lesbians are people just like everyone else.
    We in the UPND believe that accepting people the way they are is cardinal. Respect Human Rights, Respect Peoples Choices. Zodwa Ba Bantu is a good example. I am happy that you have now come to your senses and accepted that she can come and perform in the manner she wants. Let her come to perform in the manner she is gifted. Whatever we end up seeing will be history. Mind you Zodwa goes to Church. Homosexuals, Lesbians go to Church. So what has changed now if I may ask. Freedom of speech. Freedom of sight and Freedom of hearing

    • Totally agree with you.We as Christians can only win the LGBTs by showing them love.If all the time we condemn them and make them feel like they are animals,then we are pushing them further from the truth and love of Christ

  15. For every negative comment about Zambia by upndeez and their foreign allies at foreign fora, Zambians subtract 200 votes from upndeez and add them to a patriotic Zambian party.
    Look here ba upndeez, with such an attitude you can only expand your support base in your existing stronghold but I believe with such a massive vote in 2016 in Dundumwezi your maximum was reached. You can only add 0.1% per year while losing 6% per year in the other 6.5 provinces. Upndeez will never learn.

    • ALN manifesto:
      5. Rights: The Network upholds the protection of all fundamental human and political rights, as set out in international declarations such as the Universal Declaration on Human Rights adopted by the UN General Assembly. Liberals are committed to MINORITY RIGHTS, gender equality and freedom of worship. It is for this reason that the Network advocates for the separation of religion and the state. Moreover, the application of fundamental human and political rights of Africans as individuals should not be unduly constrained by the state in its desire to promote common goals. Liberals believe that recognised and secure private property rights are vital, not only to economic development, but also to underpin individual civil and political rights.

    • -Minority rights are the normal individual rights as applied to members of racial, ethnic, class, religious, linguistic or gender and SEXUAL MINORITIES; and also the collective rights accorded to minority groups. Minority rights may also apply simply to individual rights of anyone who is not part of a majority decision.
      -GENDER AND SEXUAL MINORITIES routes to LGBT!! you can work out the rest….

    • All you need to do is just search the word ‘gay’ on the ALN website & you will be bombarded with many official statements about the main agenda for ALN in support of gay rights and how gay rights form an important part of what the organisation stands for. What value can ALN surely add to Zambia using such agenda & objective? God forbid this and God continue Blessing & Protecting Zambia!

  18. The hypocrisy of the people of Zambia is astounding. These thieves of public resources I have the nerve to accuse others of supporting homosexuality, pretending they are Christians when they are worst sinners to ever walk this earth. Who cares what you do in your private life. For all I care I would rather a homosexual ruling this country who doesn’t steal public fund and provides shelter, food, clean water and health care to the vulnerable than a hypocrite Christian like Lungu and his minions.

  19. It’s sad,dangerous and unacceptable what the UPND is doing.It smells ignorance and greed.
    How is it possible in this information age, for bloggers to be brainwashed that there are people born gay or lesbian?

    If there is ANYONE OR ANYTHING who can provide scientific research EVIDENCE that there people born gay or lesbian,let them post it here for all to SEE.
    It’s very dangerous for the UPND to be subjecting a Christian nation to ridicule by evil forces in the name of democracy.

  20. Is HH still the supreme leader of UPND? I thought this guy was long gone after losing 5 times big time and worse still, even to a new comer Mr. Lungu. What a shame. This desperation by UPND must be taken seriously, I think these guys sold Zambia a long time ago after HH duped his sponsors that he would win the elections. Just how many dysfunctional institutions has HH been linked to? Satanism, Gays, Money launderers, mine destroyers (Anglo America), tribalism and cynicism but to mention a few.
    Well, I have seen real opposition leaders in Zambia but NOT as desperate as HH and this leaves thinking, cant HH realise that there is a problem with himself?

  24. 1. This man is exhibiting ignorant on the implications of the adjective ‘LIBERAL’. I don’t think UPND can win any election in Zambia with this bizarre and sad news we heard that LIBERAL PARTIES RECENTLY HAD A MEETING IN GHANA WHICH WAS ALSO ATTENDED BY UPND LEADERS. Any party calling itself ‘LIBERAL’ is known to append its signature to support GAY RIGHTS. Most of the leaders of LIBERAL PARTIES ARE KNOWN TO BE FREEMASONS who champion total freedom of mankind and human rights quite okay but they extend this to homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexual etc. from the Cambridge English dictionary, ‘ liberal’ means allowing freedoms of mankind (of a political party or a country) believing in or allowing more personal freedom and development towards a fairer sharing of wealth and power within…

  28. Wupnd is not telling the whole truth about Africa Liberal Network. A quick search on the net shows that ALN is a branch of the lieral international which has it head office in the UK. The main brain behind it is the Liberal Democratict party of uk which is many financial and houses the headquators of the Liberal international, the liberal international objectives include the right for all including sexual orientTion rights. They also aim to promote free and fair elections in member country and commited to speak against any democratic tendencecies. If you search for the liberal party of uk you will see clearly that they promote gays and lesbian right and this are clearly iEnshrined in their constitution. A search shows that upnd is not yet a paid up member but was introduced by DA of SA…

  29. That why Kakoma is very careful in his diffence. He is not denying the ALN promotes rights for all encluding sexual orientation but only saying the last meeting agenda did not touch on the rights of Lesbian and gays rights. I hope they realise and see were that arrogant maimane of Democratic Alliance is leading them. Upnd should cut all ties with Maimane and DA
