National Secretary for the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) Raphael Nakacinda has in subtle manner responded to the propaganda against him on Zambian watchdog and in the Mast newspaper by saying the festive season should be used to unite the nation as opposed to spreading propaganda against one another.

In an apparent direct response to watchdog, Nakacinda took to social media in his latest Christmas message on his facebook page, saying instead of spreading hatred that has engulfed the nation and spread by social media in recent times citizens especially politicians should preach forgiveness and love.

He said Christmas should not be seen as a time to only share material gifts but an opportunity to care for one another.

“As a politician I believe that, the true gifts of Christmas are not material, malice, hatred and propaganda but rather the opportunity to share the festive season with those whom we love and cherish. It’s a period to find ourselves, to fetch for one another, to loathe our neighbors good and reach out to those in need.

“I say this with a hope that the hate and lies being spread in our time on social media and news platforms does not recreate us into senseless people uncaring for what happens to our neighbor,” he said.

Nakacinda further said people should not try to redefine the period by sowing seeds of hate and negative propaganda and character assassination.

“This season always reminds us of a culture of forgiving one another, exchange love for hatred, exchange kindness for bitterness, exchanging truth for lies, and showing compassion towards neighbors. We should never attempt to redefine such a period by sowing seeds of hate and negative propaganda and character assassination.

“This seasons accords us an opportunity individually and collectively as a nation to exchange gestures of love compassion and kindness towards one another. This is not a season to propagate malice and character assassination,” he said.

The MMD CEO added “As you celebrate with family and friends during this Festive Season, I urge all Zambian to do so responsibly. I also call on all Zambians to remember the less fortunate, and to spread to them festive cheer by sharing with them the love and blessings of the Season.”

  1. Zambian watchdog and the Mast? Are these not branches of the trib.al upnd? What do you expect them to say apart from trib.al gibberish?

    • Common sense yavuta pa Z. Gone are the days when it was often used by people who don’t have the real knowledge, expertise, or direct experience to actually make sound judgments.

    • No one hates him. All we are saying is that he is a missersble crook who can not account for his sudden wealth and he should never come near state house

    • @4.1 You choose to spew ignorance and apparently you seem convinced by your little knowledge. It’s common knowledge among literate Zambians how he made money over the years and you in your misery and poverty you want to call it sudden wealth because of envy. And this is a very clear indication why you and your crooked leadership in pf can’t thrive outside of PF and corruption. Ever heard of Hedge funds? He used his good reputation to raise capital and made good investments.

  7. @Jay Jay,I find your reasoning rather awkward. How possible is it that you ve and mingle with friends whose surnames you don’t know,that’s a big insult to your “so called friends.” You need to sober up man and behave like a normal mammal!

    • Thats because surnames are unimportant to me….you have to understand the era we grew up in to know where am coming from unlike the dumb goat above who has only been talking about one thing in 2018.

    @ “exchange love for hatred, exchange kindness for bitterness, exchanging truth for lies…”
    “…to loathe our neighbours good…
    .

    Does this guy even listening to himself? Or he’s just writing English sentences he doesn’t understand. What does loathe a neighbour good even mean?

    In any case good message but you have to question the motivation. If only Zambians practice what they say and preach. In this country what comes out of someone’s mouth is immaterial to what they do which is a shame.

  10. Sugar coating is easy and hides the truth from the gullible. Knowing the truth comes from seeing someone’s actions. A lot of our politicians get away with sweet sounding strung-together expressions just to get away with it. Most thieves and prostitutes are very good sweet talkers.

  14. Zambian journalism has been infiltrated by satanists who propagates lies and innuendos day and night. Poor Hamasaka of the Tambwa Imbwa clan pala guy must do a refection of their souls and repent before they are labeled sons of the dark world.
