President Edgar Lungu address in Parliament for the State of the Nation Address on the Application of National values and Principles

Deputy Chief Whip Chanda Mutale has dismissed rumors circulating that the ruling party Members of Parliament (MPs) have been given K1 million each by the United Party for National Development (UPND) to support the motion of impeaching President Edgar Chagwa Lungu in parliament.

Responding to a question from Chief Chitambo of the Lala speaking people of Chitambo district in Central Province when he paid a courtesy call on him, Mr Mutale said the rumors were a fallacy and fabricated.

Mr Mutale who is also Area Member of Parliament for Chitambo said at no point has any member of parliament held a meeting with the opposition nor exchanged money.

“I would like to dismiss those rumors, they are just propaganda, I have not seen any exchange of money or meetings with the opposition,” he said.

“Where ever money is exchanging hands cannot be missed, money speaks louder, all the independent and MMD MPs are with the ruling party,” he said.

Mr Mutale said the motion of impeaching the President is a Brought In Dead (BID) motion and all matters contained in that motion would not stand on the floor of the house.

“I don’t see the substance in that motion, it will die because it is already a BID, it has no future on the floor of the house, besides, as PF we have a slogan of ‘don’t kubeba’, if they want to give us money we will eat it for free and will not support them,” he said.

He retaliated that the rumors were a lie and do not stand adding that they were desperate propaganda being propagated by the UPND.

Chief Chitambo earlier asked the Area Member of Parliament whether he and other PF MPs have been given a sum of K1 million each to support the opposition UPND on the motion to impeach the President.

  1. But it’s true Hakainde has drawn a budget for this purpose. So far he hasn’t made any move. I expected him to start with Kambwili then Kalaba but so far nothing has been done.

  2. Thank you for clearing the air as PF is the one that spread this rumour to tarnish the image of UPND. You have done us good bamfumu

  3. Twakane mune. Kilinatwishiba? He answered very well. All MMD and Independent MPs are with the ruling party. But if they want they can give us. No “Donchikubeba” chabe.

  4. He sounds to be a beneficiary why is he quick to dismiss the allegation and throw it in the dustbin? “Ifyakulya ubushiku fitulikila kumalushi.” Your clandestine meetings with HH will soon backfire since impeachment motion is becoming unlikely to be tabled on floor of paliarment.

  5. Imwe, the “doctors” have examined the thing, its a BID and hence it belongs to the morgue period. Nowhere in the world history have we heard or seen an impeachment motion table before parliament when the agitator is a big loser, bitter, jealous, envious, disrespectful and hell bent to only achieve one thing and that to force himself as president of the people that have rejected him throughout his career. Can you the the linkage here? This motion is an HH thing, its not even UPND and for once its time people in UPND came out and challenged their leader to step aside, otherwise they expecting the impossible.
    Its like thirsty mad man who badly needs water and only to get a tin without a base to draw water. Thats whats happening to HH, let him realise that 2016 is long gone and results…

    Its like thirsty mad man who badly needs water and only to get a tin without a base to draw water. Thats whats happening to HH, let him realise that 2016 is long gone and results came and the winner was President EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU. Its like Barcelona, they were stunned yesterday despite going in the game pompously that they had a 4-1 advantage, they are out of UEFA and life goes on!

  7. Very delusional, immature, and uneducated! You need two thirds of votes for a motion to be tabled the tribal minority group sees this possible! Time wasters and pretenders to the throne! They need to stand as councilors in Namwala and stop wasting our time! Not presidential material!

  8. He retaliated that the rumors were a lie and do not stand adding that they were desperate propaganda being propagated by the UPND ,Where ever money is exchanging hands cannot be missed, money speaks louder, all the independent and MMD MPs are with the ruling party,” he said,THIS MAN HAS NO SHAME.UPND IS THE VICTIM HERE THE GUY WHO STARTED ALL THIS IS A PRO PF

  9. Really We Have Put Only Drunkereds In Parliament Coz From Chanda Mutale’s Statements Its Contradicting With His Pf Carder’s Statements Who Has Been Singing Songs Of UnKnown Tune Coz Is The One Who Is Insunuating Of Upnd To Be Washing Pf Mps. To Be Frank Some Of U Pf’s U Are Mad And Confused Coz U Are In The Same Camp One Is Saying Yes The Other One Is Saying No. Stop This Madness Because At The End Of The Day U Are Loosing Members For Yo Reckelessness.How Do U Convince Me To Vote For U In 2021 When I Know That U Are Confused And Dont Even Know What The Truth Really Is.No Wonder Me I Dont Support Any Politician.

  10. The truth wil come out,otherwise the bestway to remove or install a president is through the national ballot.

  11. take it easy PF TAKULI NOKUBEBA BANGWELE BA UPND. UNCONTROLLABLE PARTY FOR NATIONAL DESTRUCTION =UPND NO WAY JUST COME TO PF BANE DONT FELL SHY IT IS YOUR PARTY. IF YOU ARE GIVEN JUST CHEW AND FORGET LET HIM SUFFERALONE
