The four main opposition parties have unanimously charged that the 18 January national dialogue organized by the three Church Mother Bodies is in a hurry to put UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to State House.

The quartet comprising mainly the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD), Libral Party (ULP) and Rainbow Party have charged that the three church mother bodies are sidelining the Zambia Centre for Interparty Dialogue (ZCID) to pave way for Mr. Hichilema to be President.

Speaking at a joint press briefing held in Lusaka yesterday, the leaders of the opposition namely Felix Mutati the MMD faction leader, Edith Nawakwi’s FDD, Sakwiba Sikota for ULP and Rainbow Party General Secretary Wynter Kabimba said during a joint press briefing in Lusaka yesterday the Church mother bodies and their Alliance conveniently omitted the fundamental issues and importance in the dialogue process.

Mr Kabimba charged that this omission of fundamental issues is deliberate because facts exposes their duplicity and ultimately political scheme.

“ We now do just that so that the Zambian people can make a fair judgement,” Kabimba said wondering how the failed national dialogue launch held at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on 18th January, 2019, was issued by the opposition Alliance when the quartet did not attend the said launch.

“The truth of the matter is that the purported national dialogue launched was a failure in its attempt to promote the image of one political party namely the UPND,” he said.

The leaders of the four parties said the level of hypocrisy exhibited by UPND and the “ church “ Alliance is unacceptable and consequently described the 18 January meeting as unproductive.

‘‘It’s a vehicle for regime change and nothing else. We don’t see the success of the national dialogue and reconciliation process as a pre-requisite to our winning the 2021 general elections,” they submitted.

The four leaders however seeking an appointment with the three bishops on the next course of action with FDD leader Edith Nawakwi assuring that quartet remain committed to legal reforms that would help promote peace and stability in the country.

    • Neither I, I don’t know the value of these guys, or are they trying to join Nawakwi’s party?
      – pompous Kabimba
      – weak Mutati, he hasn’t even moved from PF house yet.
      – Lazy Sikota, the most embarrassing lawyer in Zambia.
      I feel sorry for these guys. Are they shy to join UPND alliance?

    • They are not making sense. You are either in the Opposition or in the Ruling Party. You can’t be neither.

  1. These the Kabimbazi and the Nawakwizi are baseless. they do not know what they are there for. We know that Antonio Mwanza is an advance party preparing a place in pf for edith. Kambimba too is just shy of coming in the open to rejoin pf but am not surprised with the utterances.

  2. Dialogue is a dead duck!! The 10 briefcases supporting hh have no presence in parliament while the 4 above have 5 seats and Rafa as nominated mp. These guys can table the reforms in the national assembly while Sean Tembo can only do so in Mmembe’s mast and watchdog. PF was smart to stay away from the catholics’ booby trap. What kind of president would hh be if he is willing to break laws with impunity??? If he can lie and deceive the nation with no regard for humanity??

    • Which one of the above four non-entities qualifies as “intellectual”? All four are without any form of “intellect”. Just a bunch of hungry hypocrites in search of 30 pieces of silver.

  4. nawakwi is looking for a job in P.F. or preparing to join P.F. at the appropriate time. This is the problem with recycled politicians like Nawakwi.
    What is she still doing on the political arena?

  5. what are these tuntemba parties yapping about? notice that the leaders of these tuntemba parties, sakwiba sikota and nawakwi actually lost to hh at the upnd convention in 2008. so we know where the hatred of hh is coming from.

  6. The questions Zambia should be asking are ” is Nawakwi Married, and if not is she Marable?. If yes where is Hambulo today? These are the major issues we should be pre-occupied with.

    The other related questions are: what are the chances that the 4 parties can make it to government in 2021. If the chances are zero, why should Zambians be concerned.

    Why is Zambia combining Church and Politics. This is a political dialogue. What is the locus standi of the Church in this matter?
