APC president Nasson Msoni says late Republican President Michael Sata was on point when he described his ministers as useless saying the goings on in the current government under the leadership of one his ministers is nothing short of a disaster.

In a statement issued to the media the APC leader said the current crop of leaders in government is the worst that the country has seen since independence.

The outspoken opposition leader wonders what the late President saw in the then justice minister Edgar Lungu for him to leave the country in his charge.

“President Micheal Chilufya Sata has been vindicated when he said his Ministers where useless. There is no better description for the current terrible state of affairs in the nation than that of a national disaster.

“Mr Edgar Lungu’s cabinet is certainly the worst this Country has ever had since independence.

“I don’t understand his reasoning and judgement, surely he did not expect that by picking the worst among the most useless characters he would succeed in running an effective government,” he said.

Msoni observed that the current crop of ministers lacked conviction to save the interest of the masses but that they are using government to enrich themselves.

“Leaders lacking ideological and political convictions are not expected to be responsive to the needs of the people rather than just using government for personal aggrandizement and abusing state resources.

“Leaders who are ideologically bankrupt always tend and strive to compensate this deficit with unparalleled looting and theft of public resources without any sense of restraint and shame,” he explained.

He warned against voting for people based on political euphoria because they turn out to be bad for the people who vote for them.

“Governments which are a product of a political euphoria are bad governments because this is the conduit that brings the chaff and all non-vetted criminal elements into government.

“The critical shortage of political talent in the country is so apparent going by the dismal performance of the PF government.

“A good leader is one that harness and identify talent without fear or a sense of insecurity for his own future,” he said.

Msoni adds “Zambia is in this despicable state because the best among us are either shortchanged,blacklisted or outmaneuvered to pave way for the worst characters for the sake of servicing loyalty to the appointing authority.

Sometimes those with the necessary skills are ruthlessly shunted or deployed into foreign service not in good faith but to put them out of visibility and possible talent identification by the masses. This is exactly the downfall of our Country.”

    • Why do small minds think that if you criticize someone, then you hate them?

      Everyone can do better, and criticism should inspire one to do better.

      It is true Sata did say most of his ministers were useless!

      And it is also true that Sata has been proven right.

      If Lungu had ears, he would have listened.

      We all want the best for Zambia.

      Being critical of Lungu does not mean one supports HH or Kambwili or whatever.

      All together now…”WE ALL WANT THE BEST FOR ZAMBIA”.

    • Msoni is right on point, Lungu and he’s ministers are nothing but a burden.
      They are pests with only their own personal interest above those of the people of Zambia.

    • The person who was quoting these words about former President SATA must be the most useress person and he will NEVER be a President in Zambia. If he wants he can make a league with another friend of his who will NEVER be a president too. POOR Leadership skills in people who call themselves Patry Leaders!

    • JONI, ITS YOU WHO HAS NO REASONING & JUDGEMENT! JUST RANTING LIKE MSONI. YOU HAVE NO CLEAR REASON FOR YOUR HATE. SOBER UP AND TAKE STOCK OF ECL’S ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE SHORT TIME OF HIS PRESIDENCY. ECL COULD HAVE SOME NEGATIVES, BUT HIS POSITIVES OUTWEIGH THEM.

  3. YES, as useless as opposition parties right now in Zed. No clout, no facts, just full of conspiracy theories and rumour mongering. They are all like a giant blog site with no real purpose. No results ever come from their utterances and presence. Musoni is just ranting and blowing hot air here…Mulongoti HH and Winter will follow shortly in blowing hot air. Elias will be mute as usual. Mumba is like a player without a club. Mutati no spine. the rest just plain losers. How can we really expect Zed to move forward mwebantu? PF will just go on and on until they run out of steam like MMD did, no checks and balances from opposition to stem the tide of mediocrity at all. Shame

  5. The problem may be there ba Msoni but you are also part of the problem. Maybe you are also useless (use-less). Are you sure you can only help change things in this country only when you are a president? Look here Mr Msoni greediness has destroyed this country which you are part. Join forces and lay bear your ideas definately one or two will be picked. You expect someone to hear from u from the terraces. No way. For how long have you been existing as ACP? See that the failure we are talking about. Failure to build a simple organisation is tantamount to being useless. Ba Sata formed PF and imagine mufurila gave him a candidate within 4 months. Not chitulika where hailed from. Copper belt saw hope in him. For how long ACP not even a councillor. Rubbish. Yes if all ministers were useless…

  6. Edgar Lungu has always been a first class pupil, student, lawyer, Minister and President, hence Mr. Sata appointed him to serve in 4 ministrial and other position as the same time, when many other people who think they are important were very much arround.
    Remember he was MP for Chawama, Justice Minister, Defence Minister, PF Central commitee legal chair and PF Secretary General, Acting President at the same time.

    Someone i know has never been even a ward councilor.

    • They don’t want to talk about this. The problem they judge the President by what they think: on looks. The man is one of the smartest Presidents and individuals we have ever had. He managed to run 2 ministries successfully and the President (Sata) saw something in him! Do you think Sata chose him when he was HALLUCINATING like HAKAINDE? No! What we have seen him accomplish is the trait that President Sata saw in him which is not in the UPND THIEF.

  7. There is no need to involve MCS because he is not accessible for verification and/or self-defense. Government is doing fine. Like for all leaders, the pace et which Government is solving major national problems is quite slow. If you rush, then you will crush. The banking sector is breathing. The commercial sector is breathing. The health sector is breathing. The education sector is breathing. The future of the energy sector is looking bright.

    • Zambia is on course! In the next 10 years we will be a force to recon with in Africa. Certainly at this rate in 20 years’ time we will be a reference point for Africa. I think HAZALUZA HAGAIN.

  8. My problem is neither Nason Msoni nor Edgar Lungu. My problem is just having these two crystal clear hopeless parties. The PF and the UPND, proper failures. Especially the PF which is a clear failed project, with the economy in proper DOLDRUMS. PF and UPND are trying to out do each other with silly comments on these blogs but they are both the most useless political parties to have ever surfaced on the Zambian landscape. How I wish they can go extinct!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Zambians, bane, lets remember this very basic but important issue. Why has this hatred of Chinese in our country come about and who is advancing it? First and foremost, you know that China to is second best economy in the world after toppling out Japan. The Chinese population is about 1.6 Billion people. Anyone who has traveled globally and reads widely will tell that Chinese are all over in every country. The whole world looks to China for business, they got the money, got the technology, they got the killed people and its folly to think you can work with them.
    Even this hypocrite called HH knows that China is calling the shots today thats why in the day he will pretend to dislike them but in the night kneels for them. So who is better, one who does things in light or one that does it…

    • Open your eyes wide….. For sure, China relations has some benefits, but, there is danger with the way our current breed of politicians allowing Chinese to amass big chunks of our land as if our people won’t need it.

      As Zambians are increasingly becoming enterprising, they will need this land. In such a situation, expect tough time for Chinese when Zambians will be asking back their land. Chinese will lose out.

    Even this hypocrite called HH knows that China is calling the shots today thats why in the day he will pretend to dislike them but in the night kneels for them. So who is better, one who does things in light or one that does it in night? HH has been ranting, cheating and heaping corruption tag on PF, why, we all know. He is simply jealous and envious of PF achievements and he knows very well that he doesnt stand a chance of winning elections. The only thing left of him is to engage in corruption crusade, but what we are asking him is simple, SHOW US THE EVIDENCE OF THIS CORRUPTION, PLEASE SHOW US, whats so difficult if you have the facts? Otherwise HH must be dismissed for misleading the unsuspecting and trying to derail development. If you cant prove it, you are FAKE!

    • The biggest challenge our Country has in our era is that we have no possible alternatives to leadership and misrule.

      All the Politicians you take in and out of Power possess the same mindset, attitude and purpose for getting into politics. They all belong to the same useless Generation that doesn’t love this country.

      We’ll need God’s grace to have patriotic leadership created and rule the country.

      Real Leadership era ended with the death of Patrick Mwanawasa and Sata.

      What you have now is a conglomerate of the greed. Appearing as Angels when they are in opposition, but, develop into little Demons once they get into State House.

  11. If Sata knew that all his ministers were useless, why did he not relieve them of their positions. All I’m saying is Sata was equally useless. He is the one who left us with this mess.

    • @ Mumbi Phiri, it’s on record that after Sata won elections, he tried persuade some Ministers that worked with Mwanawasa to join him run Government. But some, for personal pride and selfish reasons, they refused.

      But, Sata could not have picked someone he doesn’t know. So, if those he knew could perform refused, he had no choice but to pick what was available and known.

      He was not going to pick Foreign Nationals.

      This attitude is within several of our Citizens. Check it in Football.

    • ……@ Mumbi Phiri… By the way, Sata did not just say “All my Ministers are useless”, he also said “…there is no opposition in Zambia” Try and marry that with the Patrick Mwanawasa experience of poaching Leaders to work with from everywhere; Independent Candidates, some Opposition Candidates, Private Sector…to an extent that some positions, both in his party and government were left unoccupied coz he couldn’t find someone to fill in with capacity to deliver.

      This who experiences and scenario of these Men tells a lot of kind of people this country has who call themselves leaders.

      He tried Nevers Mumba. Before long, he blundered seriously and was fired…. You see that….?

  12. Useless government as per your observations. Maybe that’s why people have settled on something at least of some little use, because literally we don’t even have useful opposition in the country. That you missed to notice sir, It’s un precedented despondency for Zambians today.

  13. @Sharon surely you are still saying things are fine upto date? Maybe if you can accept to say that things are not fine all we need is to help ECL but how again, because we have done it before and we have been called that we are only good at seing the negative parts however of upto now those positives have not yield.

  14. ZRA is about to slap a tax penalty of K457 millions on Professional Insurance under transfer pricing. Professional Insurance rented out 5th floor and penthouse in Finance House to Mr. Mathani and never collected any tent fir 25 years. Also bogus travel bills issued by Professional Travel for purported trips by Mr. Mathani to Washington DC, fake medical bills, property transfers by delayed transfer of sale price, transfer of funds at below market interest rates to Leasing Finance Company and similar unsecured unpaid guarantees in contravention of Banking and Financial Services Act.

  15. While I agree with you ,I want to remind you that all politicians are the same although some are more useless than others.Their aim is to fill their pockets at the expense of poor people.They use sweet language, in short they are fraudsters.Fraudsters are people we trust.Sometime we can use background check to avoid trouble.
