UPND Lusaka Province Chairperson, Grace Chivube has called on the Police Service to “leave Prime TV alone” and instead concentrate on arresting criminals.

“We as UPND women wish to find out the intent of the police to issue a search warrant to Prime TV and demand for footage bordering on two UPND MPs allegedly defaming Lungu and another one demanding for footage of UPND youths allegedly accusing them of accusing the police.

Ms Chivube said it was disheartening that the Government has resorted to harassing, gagging, intimidating and assaulting the press.

“How do you police decide to threaten Prime TV with closure when it is the only platform that ordinary and marginalized Zambians use to air their grievances. It is the only platform on which people go to complain about the rampant injustices in the country and it reports things as they are compared to ZNBC whose theme for now is PF.

She said now that the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) was a mouthpiece of the Government, after the closure of the Post Newspapers, it had become difficult for divergent views to be heard but thanks to prime, muvi, mast and digger

She also thanked the people of Petauke, Eastern province for electing a UPND Councillor.

“We are so thankful to you the people of Petauke for voting for progress through electing a United Party for National Development councillor. This is another sign that Zambia is one nation. Thank you for voting for a party led by a farmer, Mr Hichilema who understands your struggles as a farmers. The decision that you have made is a right decision,” she said.

“You, people of Petauke, hold on to your Councillor and protect him from being bought by the Patriotic Front (PF). Don’t listen to Dora Siliya because she is a member of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD)”.

She also accused Siliya of bringing confusion in the PF which she castigated at the timecof Late Michael Sata as President.

Ms Chivube has also called on Dora Siliya to resign following the failure by police to arrest HH over the alleged sale of ZAFFICO when he appeared for interrogation at Ndola Central Police on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.

“Dora Siliya, you should resign! You told the people that if HH is not jailed over the ZAFFICO issue you would resign. You, Dora, insulted late Sata but they never resigned. And now that HH wasn’t jailed, you can resign now as you said!”

She, however challenged Information and Broadcasting Services Minister, Dora Siliya, who earlier threatened to resign if HH is arrested to do so now that HH is a free man.

  2. Ba UPND, surely you are most irrelevant political party to have ever happened in Zambia. From being a formidable party under Mazoka, to a useless one tribal party with no clout, no direction but a club full of disgruntled and frustrated beings. There is nothing tangible that this party can show to anyone that it represents other than the usual pretence by its captain, Ichilema, that it represents the people. Which people if the same people have continuously rejected you?
    UPND is under seize by HH, it doesnt have a constitution, no manifesto, no direction, no drive except greed, hate, jealous, malice, lies, envy and the list is endless. Just check the electoral performance of UPND in the last ten years and you will quickly know that its a dead and buried party. Others may argue but facts…

  4. Only 700 people voted for upendi in petauke. PF got 500. Honestly should this vote become a chorus.

    Thats what I call mediocrity.

    Secondly. Leave Prime tv alone. Most of us dint even know prime tv existed time politicians started talking about it

    The first time I watched prime tv Dr ck was talking at Ndola police

    “FROM TODAY ONWARD IF ONE OF US IS CATCHED BY POLICE, ALL OF US MUST BE CATCHED. ”

    I said is this what they call prime tv. I thought you catch thieves and animals and fish

    There is no opposition in Zambia

    Am a non partisan political consultant.

  5. Madam Grace tell people the TRUTH, Dora Siliya SAID THAT IF HH PRODUCES EVIDENCE THAT ZNBC AND ZAFFICO WERE SOLD TO THE CHINESE THEN SHE WAS GOING TO RESIGN. Then what did WE see then in NDOLA POLICE STATION .? HH failed EVEN to SPEAK, He was Quite BECAUSE he had NO evidence of his alleged CASES. Today Without NO shame on yourself trying to shift truth to your LIES..? Study the people on what they want on the ground . LIES will not HELP at all . PRIME TV is a UPND media with TRIBAL UNION OF TONGA DOMINATION some evil to the Zambians, Prime TV should be regulated as well, their reporting is marred by bitterness and hatred

  6. When ecl goes to petauke am 100% this kansela will be among thousands that will go to welcome him.

    Will upendi fire him.? Why set your own trap?

    Thats why I keep saying upendi lacks political maturity and tack. But what I get is a robotic down vote and insults.

    Listen to me. I can help upendi. Remove your top 2 leaders. The party has turned in a personal property.

    Its possible to win by simply majority but 50+1 is demographically impossible because the boss is generally perceived TRIBAL and vengeful.

  7. AVIC international is a conduit for money laundering and corruption, whoever dares to talk about AVIC is threatened with arrest. Lies have short legs so they say, why should your people work like slaves in their own country? And by the way why is a Chinee holding a position of human resource officer at AVIC instead of a Zambian? How do you expect a Chinese to interpret our labor laws and follow them to the later? This clearly shows you that these Chinese are running the show and whoever tries to challenge them will be dealt with by the powers that be. We should be ashamed of ourselves, after contracting so much debt our people can not still get decent salaries and contracts?

  9. Well-done Mr P. This UPND have become Champions in misinforming people. It starts with the top most leadership to the bottom. Same goes with their agencies of deception Prime TV. Just listen to the young man Mark Simuwe during his news analysis trying so hard to twist facts in favour of UPND at the extent of looking foolish. Just see his expressions trying to justify his lies. What a shame.

  10. I DON’T LIKE DORA SILIYA AND I LEFT PF THE TIME SHE WAS APPOINTED AS A CABINET MINISTER BY ECL. I VOTED FOR MCS IN 2006,2008 AND 2011 ELECTIONS BECAUSE HE WAS VERY CONSISTENT WITH HIS MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.
    IT IS TRUE THAT DORA USED TO INSULT SATA AND AT ONE TIME WHEN MMD WALKED OUT OF PARLIAMENT PROTESTING,DORA WAS SEEN RAISING HER MIDDLE FINGER POINTING TOWARDS PF MINISTERS THEN DURING SATA.WHAT DID THAT MEAN?
    SHE WAS TELLING PEOPLE THAT WHEN SATA WINS IN 2011,SATA AND PF WILL INTRODUCE HOMOSEXUAL IN ZAMBIA.
    SHE WAS LOUDLY SAYING SATA PUTS ON BLACK BOMBASA.
    IT PAINS ME TO SEE CK,KALABA,MWENYA MUSENGE AND MANY MORE PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF WILLIAM BANDA AND THE SAME DORA IN PF THEN WHILST IN OPPOSITION BEING REBUKED AND PRAISING PEOPLE LIKE BOWMAN AND DORA…

  11. I didn’t know Grace Chivube was dull until today. Are you sure Dora said U will resign if the Police arrest HH? Chizungu ni chovuta….Dora said I will resign if HH produces evidence to show that ZAFFICO has been sold. Did HH take any evidence to the Police?
    Moreover, UPND is not in power to order the Police to stop any investigations. Law is law,you don’t insult the Head of State and think it’s democracy or freedom of speech it’s an offence. Let them repeal this Law if at all they will be in power and see how their President will be stripped naked.
    Let all organs of government work independently. What are you afraid of if you didn’t insult the President and the Police? Your hatred for PF and ECL will take you to hell.

  12. CONT,
    SURELY PEOPLE HAVE SHORT MEMORIES.TODAY PEOPLE CAN EVEN SING SONG FOR DORA AND PRAISE HER IN PF.THIS IS A JOKE.
    ECL WILL REGRET FOR SOME OF THESE THINGS AND TIME WILL TELL.
    DORA SAID IF HH WILL PRODUCE EVIDENCE THAT ZNBC AND ZAFFICO HAS BEEN SOLD,SHE WILL RESIGN AND I WAS WAITING FOR HH TO PRODUCE THE EVIDENCE BUT UP TO NOW THIS MAN HAS FAILED.
    SHE NEVER SAID THAT IF HH WILL NOT BE JAILED,THEN WILL RESIGN MAY BE THAT WAS REPORTED ON PRIME TV.
    DORA HAS NO SHAME,THERE IS NO WAY SHE CAN BE ENJOYING IN THE PARTY WHERE THE SHE WAS INSULTING THE FOUNDER EVERY DAY.

  14. Grace, press freedom is important and so is the prevention of civil war in our country. I repeat what was reported by Prime TV sometime this year. “PF government has retired in national interest over 150 teachers all of To.nga speaking from Kabulonga Boys of Lusaka. Now Grace can you tell me what was the intention of such alarming news and had the “affected ” tribe been war mongers would we have peace in Zambia. It looks simple but when war breaks out it’s not easy to stop it. The media played the biggest role in the Rwandan genocide. Don’t get excited.

  16. UPND has lived it’s usefulness.Trust among learned Zambians for UPND has dramatically faded.Only when you are dull and you pretend to be blind and stupidly ignorant,then you trust upnd propaganda.If all the past Governments had committed themselves to the developmental agenda,the way PF has taken it serious, Zambia would have been a mini Dubai.PF would have been focusing on something else and not Roads.UPND must sober up and face the reality.The economic situation we currently faced with, doesn’t need magicians.Its beyond human effort,if America is crying,who is Zambia not to feel the effects? Ignorance doesn’t pay, sober up!

    • This government has done a great job and this TRIBAL PEOPLE want to paint Zambia as bad when every visitor both Zambian and non-Zambians are speaking well of Zambia. I have met many people who have been to Zambia and are very happy except the tribal h-organisation of HH and his backers. NO wonder it will take a long time to trust these people! Look at the language they use against the president? In 2021, he will lose HAGAIN!

  17. Zambian ruling parties should learn to leave the media alone. The more you threaten the media the more people take them seriously. Here in South Africa since Mandela noone has ever threatened the media and the media doesnt cause all the imagined chaos that Lungu and Dora think it will. There are no hreats to close down media in South Africa yet it is an African country like Zambi, Rwanda, Uganda and 55 others.

  18. The guy that says Mazoka got 29% and HH got 47% is very naive because at the time Mazoka stood the field was very competitive where Gen Miyanda, Gen Tembo or Mazoka would have beaten the MMD. Can’t compare where the 30 or so parties got a combined total of less than 5% with the real battle was between PF and Upnd.

  19. Did he say that? Yes he did because his masters asked him to!

    That statement was not an innocent one but spoke to everything that UPND and Hichilema are all about – fronts of white capital with interests in Zambia’s mineral wealth!

    How it all began:

    The former illegitimate mining corporation that lost its mining rights to the Zambian government in 1970 has never rested. In the wake of multi-party democracy, this corporation saw privatisation as an opportunity to regain its mineral rights across the country. To this effect, it fronted its ‘men’ both in government and in the private sector to champion their cause. Hichilema himself was one of the fronts of the foreign interest that resulted in him landing a top position as Lead in the Sell of Subsidiary assets while late Anderson…
