As the day draws nearer for the Mangango Constituency By Election, we note that the United Party for National Development (UPND) has been conspicuously absent in the campaigns in the constituency and their silence in the been deafening.

Their silence is really designed to be a calm before the storm.

The UPND are a creature of habit. They use the same old tired underhand tactic of staying away from campaigns and then popping up in the morning of the last two days with their violence and then…petitions.

The UPND know that the people of Mangango have caught up with their negativity to development and they have now embraced the development agenda of the Patriotic Front.

The fact is that the beleaguered UPND are not campaigning because they know they’re losing.

They should just man–up and admit it as opposed to being stunted cry-babies.

The Patriotic have been on the ground selling our manifesto and we have had very peaceful campaigns.

Civil Society has an opportunity to redeem their compromised reputation by being objective and going to Mangango to see who is campaigning and who is not.

UPND lack of campaign and their absence on the ground is typical of their plan to do what they do best – spending time on social media to disparage development while the PF are in the ground campaigning; and then they cry  foul and throw tantrums once they lose and their porridge hits the fan.

The leadership of the UPND must take responsibility, grow up and campaign peacefully!

For a party that is next month celebrating twenty years of existence, their violent juvenile tantrums are an embarrassment to democracy.

In fact, their poor performance is an embarrassing reflection on their leader of twelve stunted years.

Just grow up and do the right thing!

    • They are not getting any motivation from their leaders. All decisions are made by HH.

      If they catch him on a good day, then all is good. Ask HH for campaign funds on a bad day, you are simply reduced to a tiny insect.

      It’s his money. He decides where it should be un-invested.

      Meanwhile, GBM has realised that they don’t like him in UPND and it will remain so.

    • *Hakainde’s sex Scandal – Charmaine Expecting HH’s Child in April next year.*

      It is now confirmed that Charmaine Musonda is four months pregnant and she is expected to give birth to HH’s child in April 2019.
      The fury surrounding Hakainde’s relationship with Charmaine Musonda which has led to her pregnancy is distinct from many other Zambian sex scandals because it stems from the disturbing fact that Charmaine was the girlfriend of former UPND chilanga member of parliament Keith Mukata who was accused of disrespecting HH and UPND when he refused to support UPND’s motion of boycotting parliament.
      The relationship between HH and Charmaine has caused so much anguish and pain in HH’s household such that some Church elders were sent to try and sort out the problem in HH’s house in new…

    • Sunday “Chilufya”, started using “Chilufya” to sound like Sata.
      Grow up Sunday.
      Frank was not awarded a job as ambassador by turning into a fool like Sunday.
      Mumbi was not awarded a job as MP by turning herself into a fool like Sunday.

    • Muna and HH are damn scared of their stealing for years.
      They are busy externalising millions of kwacha year in year out.
      They did this through Africa Financial services, pensioners funds.
      They have been doing this through Sanam Life Insurance, externalizing millions disguising as reinsurance premiums.
      Where is ZRA?
      WHERE IS K24,000,000 penalty fir each year of transfer pricing?
      Where is the farmhouse Pensions and 8nsurance Authority ?

  1. “Stunted cry-baies”, “juvenile tantrums”, I think there is no need to use such terms, especially were you are not even provoked. I think there’s a slip from peaceful and constructive observation- the tone is not loaded with wisdom and leadership qualities. There could have been a better way to raise the concerns, otherwise silence would have been more golden on this one.

    • So someone sat down and typed up this : why is the opposition not campaigning in Mangango …you sat there in your lounge surrounded with questionable property and loot…you campaigning alone now you want someone to insult; what have we done as country to get to here with such a mess.
      If just goes to show there is no leadership above him …its like in a bar where the boss is getting drunk with juniors its free for all.

  5. Everything Sunday Chan writes comes through his back side. He is low life, like most of senior people in his PF party. Its time we get this nation back on truck, and let’s wait and see what will happen to Sunday Chan.

  6. If mangango is no problem for PF, then why spending 2 days of presidential time (taxpayer money), the rest of the ministers and bootlickers ( taxpayer money), police army and air force (taxpayer money)? Then asking for more aid money to be released in the same breath as these childish taunts aimed at communicating that opposition – or democracy – is futile (i.e. Lungu na Dora wamuyaya)?

  7. The calibre of Sunday’s commentaries is pitifully low. Why do we have such a Kaponya in our Statehouse! Is this the best we can do?

  8. Maybe Upnd is not campaigning because they thought that the riots would succeed and lead to collapse of government and they take over. Always misreading politics these underfive trib.als. Imagine making the same mistake over and over again since 2006!! And this week those mistakes may cost him some freedom and some human rights.

  9. Sunday, and no one cares whether you are called Monday, Tuesday or fimofimo, talk about how you are goig to alleviate poverty for the masses and not that nonsense of poking your foes.
    When you take one too many, stop putting pen to paper because more often than not what you scribble for public consumption is pure nonsense. Can you explain the dishing out of Salaula in Mangango?
    Would you conquer that this is vote buying? What does ECZ require to disqualify a candidate from an election?

  11. We told you Kamanga would be a disaster. You never wanted to listen to us. He knows zilch about football but you were fooled by his vitriol against Kalusha Winning afcon is not a small achievement. Some countries have never won it since it started. We couldn’t win it for 40 years and someone comes to demean the achievement and you believe him. Now we have failed to qualify for the second tournament running some thing we have never done before.
