UPND MP and HH's Presidential Advisor Douglas Syakalima
UPND MP and HH’s Presidential Advisor Douglas Syakalima

The opposition UPND says its resolve to move a fresh motion in Parliament to have President Edgar Lungu impeached is more alive this year than ever before.

UPND senior advisor to the president Douglas Syakalima says his party has noticed that President Lungu has allegedly continued to breach the Constitution despite its earlier warning to impeach him last year.

Mr. Syakalima says the UPND’s options are thus still active and that the party has not relented at achieving this goal.

He has disclosed to Q-News that his party is currently putting a few things together to push its agenda to have President Lungu impeached.

Mr. Syakalima, who is also Chirundu Member of Parliament states that his party has realized that President Lungu is allegedly a stubborn politician.

He says the UPND does not think the Zambian people need a President who can, from its observation, refer to the brutalization of citizens by the Zambia Police as maintaining law and order.

UPND senior advisor to the president says his party therefore has more things against the President they feel are adequate enough to have him prematurely removed from office.

He says his party does not however think as the ruling PF leader, President Lungu should be at this point excluded from the National Dialogue.

And an attempt to get a response from the President’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda via telephone proved futile by post time.

Mr. Chanda’s phone went answered.

  1. The truth is upnd has no strategy for this country. They walk out of parliament because they don’t prepare for it. They have no substance or contributions except attacking the PF. What progressive laws have upnd proposed since the last general elections in 2006??

    • You know the reason the walked out when Chitotela stood up BUT are trying to trivialize it…I think PF back benchers should have followed suit but with our Zambian MPs loyalty is to their party than the people that actually put them there, they forget how they were kneeling in front of them for votes.

    • Useless party. Some of your mps don’t even know what it means to impeach and they have never read a consistution and know about it. Which law are they going to use to impeach the lungu?

    • Musonda Kateule – Have you ever read the constitution yourself? In a democracy you can impeach a sitting President…its not possible as the numbers are not on the side of the opposition but the act of impeachment itself is an embarrassment on Lazy Lungu.

    • Impeach the president when you know you don’t the numbers in parliament. I thought HH the DD(Delusional Dictator) was the only delusional one in your party but it appears it’s the whole UPND.

    • This is another Fruitless, Flimsy and Fallacy Headlines from UPND.

      You deliberately make these headlines to please your Grassroots that are so ignorant on how Parliaments.

      Put it simply. You have no numbers to impeach Lungu.

      HH has have failed to shine the light to the people of Zambia. Which makes him the King of Darkness.

      The hope HH talks about is all embedded in his own dark world.

      Every Blue Print he has tried, ends dying in the lakes of Tanganyika, Bangweulu Mweru and Kariba

      It’s time HH started looking at the man in the mirror. That man is you (HH).

      It’s not The People of Zambia.
      It’s not Electrol Commission of Zambia
      It’s not UPND
      Zambia does not owe HH anything. If anything it’s the other way round.

      The problem is HH. Lungu is not perfect…

    • The problem is HH. Lungu is not perfect but everyday you are making him look like a Saint.

      Crying to make news to the international media will not convince Zambians to vote for.

      You guys in UPND have never understood to sell your vision to Zambia. Because you are slaves to HH. He has bought you with Silver Shillings.

      HH who is not Politically Pasturised or Astute. He is a Fluke.

      Therefore Lungu is the best man, looking at those who are quacking on the political scene

    • For too long, you have played and sang this:

      1. Broken Vinyl Record
      2. Scratched CD
      3. Corrupt MP3 File

      If you have the BALLS.. just do it. Impeach him.

    • Impeach dull HH first for killing internal democracy in UPND.
      Impeach his whole team of tribal loyalty and disloyalty to zambia.

  2. Even if you impeached him. …which is not possible, HH won’t become president. You dropped this nonsense because you thought Edgar was going to be barred for 2021. Continue losing sleep on the useless worldly things. My advice is you turn to God and do something useful.

  4. So why didn’t you move the motion last time around when Parliament resume sitting? You suddenly went quiet did you broker a deal with PF so they dont move their motion to bar Presidential candidates with no Parliamentary experience?

  5. It’s good to hear from others that indeed Douglas Syakalima is a moron, I used to think that I was the only one who held that view.

  6. Lungu Edgar Chagwa is more than ripe for impeachment! He has a number of times abrogated the law of our land with impunity. How can Lungu cover up Chitotela criminal? How can Lungu allow Nkandu Luo to single-handedly punish millions of already suffering Zambians by withdrawing meal allowance for our children at public universities?
    LUNGU IS OF NO VALUE TO US THE ORDINARY ZAMBIAN CITIZENS. HE MUST BE KICKED OUT OF STATE HOUSE IMMEDIATELY.

  7. @TRUTH, what law are you going to use to impeach for withdrawing meal allowance. Think before you type or say anything. When president Chiluba’s government increased student contributions towards tuitions for students on bursary from 10% to 25% who was impeached? Bane, let logic prevail not thinking through party lines

    • Parliament has the mandate to decide on meal allowances for our children in state universities. It’s not a prerogative of a serving minister of higher education, especially so with this irrational and unreasonable Magogo Nkandu Luo with her ugly face.

  10. I really feel sad for our brothers and sisters in mostly Southern and Western Provinces who are manipulated by these lunatics to represent their development needs because with such characters all you get is nothing but trash. Surely and honestly, are these guys serious? Its now 13 years since the formation of UPND and there’s absolutely nothing you can identify them with except one chap who is just delusional about the presidency. Sorry, the more you heap hatred on President Lungu, the more irrelevant your party and dictator HH gets.

  14. It’s about time lungu is impeached or forced to resign. We can’t continue with his mediocre rule, whereby corruption and violence have become the norm. Power belongs to us and we can do anything we put our minds to. His guns and machetes cannot overcome our will to free ourselves.

  15. A president can be impeached on serious violation of the constitution. His party can also table a motion of no confidence in him by voting against him in their internal structures (which UPND should be doing for HH). If ECL is failing as president in his normal execution of duties its not a place for impeachment. Voters will judge him in 2021. His term should be allowed and supported. The UPND in my opinion should be impeached by the ECZ for seriously violating Zambia who don’t agree with them. I don’t like ECL style lately but he is still the better evil than UPND. Remember the biblical story of two woman fight over a child? The one (who wasn’t the real mother) suggested better child is killed. That woman is UPND.

  17. The best impeachment is the ballot box. It can only be achieved in an environment of viable and credible opposition.Opposition,in it’s current state,cannot garner enough votes to impeach the president. In the first place,there is selfish and corrupt elements in our national assembly. Secondly, PF members of parliament are the majority. A motion of impeachment is an exercise in futility. The best the opposition can do is to convince the citizenry on why they are an alternative to PF. PF should be pummeled on tax, corruption issues and social provisions to the citizenry. Most of the pages on which they based their campaigns are in tatters. They have deviated from a lot of campaign promises. If there is a party that can easily be kicked out is PF. Impeachment is not a better strategy of…

  18. I did not know that President Lungu is feared this much. He is certainly a force to reckon with. I wonder if those in opposition ever go to sleep over ECL. The gods will indeed continue to first make mad those they want to destroy.
