UPND Candidate Charmaine Musonda
UPND Candidate Charmaine Musonda

Two United Party for National Development (UPND) Councillors from Chilanga have refused to support the preferred party candidate Charmaine Mel Musonda on moral grounds.

The two Councillors, Arthur Moonde for Nakachenje Ward and Peter Mulubisha for Chinyanja Ward, told journalists at a media briefing held at Chrisma Hotel in Lusaka yesterday afternoon that the UPND erred on moral ground to settle for Charmaine Musonda and will find it difficult to campaign for a candidate who is morally bankrupt.

“Having thoroughly consulted our people in our Wards and Chilanga district at large on the adoption of Musonda Charmaine Mel, we came to conclusion that the UPND has erred on moral grounds to settle for a person whose morality is being questioned,” Councillor Moonde told journalists.

Although the party followed the preferred process of adopting Charmaine, Moonde explained, the UPND leadership never consulted key stakeholders in the party including Councillors.

“On the strength of this serious anomaly, we resolved never to campaign for Charmaine and even if we did, our people will never accept Charmaine for what she did.”

The two Councillors also accused Charmaine of harbouring acute hatred for the deposed area Member of Parliament after he was convicted and sentenced to death for murdering his security guard.

Moonde indicated that Charmaine did not speak to her conscience honestly before accepting the adoption to contest for the vacant Chilanga seat.

Mr Moonde alleged that it was an act of hatred that led Charmaine to accept the adoption otherwise she could not have accepted the adoption.

“To our surprise, Charmaine accepted the adoption…. this means, she had a hand in his conviction.”

Moonde observed that Mukata does not deserve the kind of betrayal he has received from a person who claim not only to be a partner but also a close ally.

“For those of us who appreciate the work Mukata did in Chilanga, we will find it hard to turn our backs against him and we will find it difficult to campaign for any person that betrays the man who has done so much for the Chilanga.

Meanwhile, Councillor Mulubisha told journalists at the same briefing that he agreed with his counterpart Moonde that Zambia as a Christian nation does not support immorality.

“It is for this reason we come to put records straight that, Charmaine is not our candidate because supporting her will be endorsing immortality which the UPND endorsed after adopting Charmaine.”

Mr Mulubisha said that he had doubts that the people of Chilanga will give Charmaine a vote after betraying Mukata who did a lot for the constituency during the time he served as an MP.

And Councillor Mulubisha ticked of calls by UPND election chairman Garry Nkombo’s advice to UPND members to use violence to win an election.

Mulubisha explained that violence has no room in a civilised society like Zambia.

“As Civic leaders, we condemn any form of violence because what comes out of violence is destruction.”

    • If you don’t like her, why not wait and not vote for her? This issue of talking about immorality as if you yourselves are moral is baseless. It’s funny that the ‘PF’ courts found the lady not guilty and yet because she because she wants to go into politics “ her right” people are indirectly saying that the courts are incompetent

    • I don’t like her

      She is thinks she is all that.

      Charmaine you are nothing compared to me. I swear you aren’t nothing to me.

      I don’t like her at all.

      Thanks

    • We need good morals in zed politics.

      It’s good there are sane heads in UPND.

      But endorsing this slay queen by HH has lowered my opinion of him even further.

    • I have stated before that this Mukata murder issue has more issues than we hear. The murdered rat was is what the ground nut referred. It seems this Charmaine enjoyed being screwed by the stained than the slayer hence her hatred towards the later. She is a gold digger and may be currently excavating gold from one of the big fish from one of the Tonga bulls.

    • She “” MAY ” have been the one who pulled the trigger. And the Keith Mutaka took it upon himhimself. . thinking that as a politician he would get a way if he was the accused. So to spare the girlfriend.

      Have the police looked at it very deeply ????

      1. Why has this Charmain put her name forward to capitalise on her “15 Minutes Fame ” derived from a murder case.
      2. Why is she so insensitive, without regard?
      3. She should be spending time trying to emotionally support the boyfriend in jail.

      As for UPND… This is really seeking low. It’s too soon to select her name, to be on the ballot. Even if she is the best person to win.

      IT’S NOT WHAT THE PEOPLE WHAT ON THE GROUND. BUT WHAT THE SUPREME LEADER HH. . SAYS…

      Therefore, PF will bag this seat…. !!!!

    • This Fornicator said the other day that she loves her Party President and I quote “Very Much”. End of quote! Where does that leave Mutinta and the Widow???

      The Fornicator said the other day that she was an “Adult” and as such she could sleep with anyone she wants to. During the final selection, she sneaked up on Garry Nkombo and gave; he took!!!

      Garry can’t think straight now and all he sees is blood shed to win this election just like Keith did. Garry is now advocating violence in Chilanga, all because of Charmaine, the Fornicator.

      Rumor has it that she probably already gave it to Hakalusa and didn’t enjoy it but he’s playing along. Just look at his body language in every picture she’s with him.

      The Fornicator already has 3 children from married men, she is completely…

    • Continued…

      The Fornicator already has 3 children from married men, she is completely morally bankrupt. She uses her looks and buttocks to lure men to bed but she is rotten to the core!!!

      Like Proverbs 7:27 New Living Translation (NLT) says … Her house is the road to the grave. Her bedroom is the den of death.

      This Fornicator is murderous dangerous who’s used to getting her way from bed. The smart people of the Chilanga Enterprise deserve better … not his harlot worse than Jezebel.

      I watched their press conference, Councillor Mulubisha has his head screwed up straight, he could actually have been a far much better candidate for UPND than the Fornicator.

      Ba LT, like I asked before … we now know only three candidates are running in Chilanga, please give us profiles on…

    • So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto the two UPND Chilanga Councilors, he that is without sin with a woman, let him first cast a stone at Charmaine Musonda. Instead, Arthur Moonde and Peter Mulubisha walked away.

  1. Even if UPND tribal followers worship tonga god HH,on this lady Kainde made a very big mistake and he deserves no support from you tribalists because we neee morals in politics!!we know HH wanted to revenge on Keith Mukata for remaining in parliament alone.But Chilanga residents wont take part in HH’s revenge!!FRANKLY SPEAKING,UPND WOULD NEED A MIRACLE TO WIN THIS BY ELECTION!!!I was in Chilanga yesterday,many people are very upset with UPND leadership and they are ready to show HH on 05/06/2018 that arrogance in life does not pay!!Many Zambians are Christians who cannot support this murderer!!HH ONLY HAS HIMSELF TO BLAME FOR ADOPTING A WRONG CANDIDATE IN CHILANGA!!

  2. The majority of women in Chilanga who are Christians and married cannot vote for a harlot who has being exposed and hh together with UPND top leadership who subscribe to group think will cry in their mother tongues when results will be announced and not even the UN will entertain them due to insubordination and childish manners of hh towards the Commonwealth

    24

  3. It seems the so called selection process wasn’t people owned as claimed by senior leaders, how else is it that the preferred candidate is being disowned by other members? It doesn’t come as a surprise because the UPND is very corrupt when it comes to adoption of candidates. In 2016 officials were demanding as much as K40,000 from aspiring candidates. Munji Habeenzu was excluded when he refused to give out that money. I am sure Charmaine may have spent a fortune, now they will reap the bonus of going into an election divided

    • Quote, Cut ‘n paste “Although the party followed the preferred process of adopting Charmaine, Moonde explained, the UPND leadership never consulted key stakeholders in the party including Councillors.” unquote. Am I missing something from these councillors here or they just have hatred in them? Law is supreme and every person must answer for their actions when at odds with the dictates of the law. Fact is, Charmaine for the 2016 elections was the grassroots preferred candidate before the Mukata defection disadvantaged/derailed her adoption. Right on @ Manb!

  6. ” ONLY A TONGA MUST LEAD UPND” says Sejani. Things are falling apart in this tribal cult called UPND over this lady Charmaine’s adoption. The Watch dog, the mouth piece of UPND, has now fallen out of love with them over the same matter. Not so diehard UPND and HH supporters have also distanced themselves from UPND leadership over the same issue. This has just exposed the UPND that it is not only a tribal party but it is also a party without morals. The entire leadership of UPND are morally bankrupt. I side with these two councilors for the their resolution and let all Chilanga residents vote against Charmaine. Voting for this lady is as good as endorsing immorality. HH A TICKING TIME BOMB TO ZMBIA’S PEACE & SECURITY.

  7. Are our consciences right when we condemn the lady. We are told they followed the process. Besides this lady is Bemba, so it just baffles me how people would still see tribal here. Strange. Strange also that we demand her conscience when the courts of law acquitted her. The one who shot the guard was mukata and Charmaine has a life to live and kids to take care of just the way all of us are hustling. So unless shes just a huge challenger no wonder pipo are just all over the place.

    • If she’s realised & confessed her wrong doing then you may have a point. But where a person refuses that she did anything wrong & doesn’t seemingly care about life lost & people hurt by situation she partly created, then it will be wrong to blame those who don’t want to associate themselves with such selfishness & injustice. Can she put her self in position of families that have lost a loved one & those that have lost a father & say sorry for her part in the misery caused. Then people may start looking @ her differently because we all make mistakes. But unfortunately there is no remorse coming from her. There is no sin that God can’t forgive when there’s true repentance. God Bless Zambia

  14. THERE IS A BIT OF GAMBLING IN POLITICS. BUT ON THIS ONE, THE UPND GAMBLED WRONGLY. THEY SHOULD NOT BLAME ANY ONE FOR LOSING THIS SEAT THAT WAS THEIRS AND GIVING IT TO PF ON A SILVER PLATE. YES IT IS TRUE THAT SOME PEOPLE CONDEMNING THIS WOMAN ARE ALSO NOT MORALLY UPRIGHT. BUT THE ISSUE IS THAT SUCH PEOPLE ARE VOTERS. AND YOU NEED THEIR VOTES. THEY ARE TELLING YOU THAT YOU HAVE A WRONG CANDIDATE, PERIOD. YOU EITHER LISTEN TO THEM AND WIN THEIR CONFIDENCE OR REJECT THEIR ADVICE AND LOSE THE SEAT. IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT IF HH HAS SAID IT, THEN IT CANNOT BE OVERTURNED BY ANYONE IN UPND.

    PATRIOIC Front chairperson for the committee on legal affairs Edgar Lungu has been suspended from practising as a lawyer with immediate effect on allegations of misappropriating money meant for retirees of Lafarge which was formerly known as Chilanga cement plc.

    This is according to a letter dated July 30, 2010 and signed by Law Association of Zambia(LAZ) honorary secretary Musa Mwenye and copied to all relevant institutions and individuals that deal with lawyers.

  18. The upnd have fully paid the lady her balance for the good jod she did by drawing her boy friend in the trap. Mukata foolishly or blindly followed the way of a harlot without knowing the her way is an highway to the grave. Delira was hired by Samson enemies. Her task was simple to find the source of his strength and deliver him to the enemy and latterrecieve her payment. This is the repeatation of biblical history. He messed with a dangerous enemy and he has been dealt with has they promised. “AMUKAKA AFELA NKOPE. I hope morally upright individuals in upnd like Martha Mushipe will tell HH he truth in his face even if they win or loose.. This issue is no longer a chilanga saga but national and it made upnd and hh drop points in the public opinion and if general elections are held today…

  20. UPND has exposed the worst kind of IMMORALITY in Africa. HH and his crop of leadership have instilled FEAR in many families. The most vulnerable families are the Bantu-Botatwe, especially Lozis, who socialise with the Tongas. The Tonga and Lozi husbands & fathers are hereby strongly warned of these SEXY carnivores. Whenever UPND menfolk roam about, their left pockets are full of enticing money whereas their right and back pockets are loaded with VIAGRA and MUTOTOTO ready to pounce on a woman or girl.
    Warning to Tonga and Lozi husbands and fathers – when UPND men are sighted – LOCK-UP YOUR WIVES & DAUGHTERS. REASON: UPND is no longer in POLITICS in that their leaders have MUTATED into sexual creatures..

    PF: Cosmas Moono 10,000

    Chamene seems to be a liability to h.h in this election. Remember that the tribalist and hate specialist of upnd did promise some unspecified action against Mukata for not joining the first upnd boycott of the Presidents speech in parliament.

  32. #36 Luther, you have answered your own question, when Mumbi Phiri erred she was promptly disciplined. But h.h and upnd are defending immorality.
    Let me assure upnd that the matter of Chamene has raised many other questions regarding her acquittal and the death sentence for Mukata. H.h has ensured the case be re-opened for more detaiked investigations. This means that even in the unlikely event of Chamene winning the election, she still faces a new investigation, a new charge complete with a new sentence. Prepare for another by election if Chamene wins.
    Already she is being investigated by police for criminal trespass of Mr Katongo’s home, at 02:00hrs!doesn’t this woman sleep? Works better at night?

  33. HH and UPND have lost it this time around – I really do not know what they want to achieve with this Gold Digger.
    PF will capitalize on the murder case and re-open it.
    So, she will be in courts for the most part of her campaigns.

    Even if she wins, PF will use the murder case as ransom to buy her.
    So, either which way – PF stands to win while UPND have dug their own grave.

  34. Who sponsored the press conference for the two councillors?. Whilst UPND have made a mistake, it should not appear as though Charmaine’s weakness is the only strength the PF have got.

In return, she was promised a parliamentary seat which Mukata grabbed from her at the last minute. In short, stay away from UPND if you want to live morally upright. Musonda is now enjoying bloody money and other benefits.
