Sunday Chanda with UPND President Hakainde Hichilema
Sunday Chanda with UPND President Hakainde Hichilema

“Anything founded on negativity cannot have a positive outcome…He that lieth down with dogs shall rise up with fleas.”

By Sunday Chilufya Chanda

INTRODUCTION

The recent News Diggers newspaper screaming headline:
_“I’M DISSAPOINTED WITH HH –KAMBWILI”_ and the related observation: _“the opposition is crumbling”_ just confirms what we had said in the first place; The opposition” alliance” was a union of the erroneous founded on error and destined for a horrendous ending.

*Flash back:* When a group of one-man briefcase political parties chaperoned by UPND leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema were recently paraded at Intercontinental Hotel to “announce the formation of an “alliance” we swiftly saw what many Zambians had also observed.

We said according to UPND, the so-called alliance partners were nothing but my brother Hichilema’s lapdogs and useful idiots.

It cannot be overemphasised that the majority of Zambians also foresaw what we predicted. However, there were a few skeptics who questioned our statement because they thought our understanding of the opposition elements was limited. But we’ve been proven right; the opposition is crumbling right before the public’s eyes.

Where is my brother Mr. Elias Chipimo? Where is my brother Mr. Sean Tembo? where is my brother Mr Chishimba Kambwili? Where are the other stray tag-alongs?

BITTER ENVY, EGOS, SLANDER AND GREED ARE POOR FOUNDATIONS FOR ANY RELATIONSHIP

There is confusion in the opposition “alliance” arising out of many factors, but greed, inflated egos and selfish ambitions lie at the heart of these dynamics.

What is mainly fuelling the confusion is that according to UPND, my brother Hichilema has already won the 2021 elections and their stance as pronounced by some of their parliamentarians and stalwarts is that the so-called “alliance partners” should only be designated as District Commissioners in Hichilema’s imaginary administration.

THE MUTUAL DISTRUST BETWEEN TWO OVER INFLATED EGOS

While my elder brother Kambwili may cry and moan that he met with UPND Chairperson Mrs Mutale Nalumango and they “agreed to support each other in Katuba and Lubwa” the reality is that Hichilema’s UPND believes my brother Kambwili duped them over Roan Constituency. They had hoped that my brother Kambwili was going to support them in Bahati Constituency – but it didn’t happen.

(There is a subplot to my brother Hichilema ignoring what my mother Mutale Nalumango acting on behalf of his UPND had purportedly agreed with my brother Kambwili. It reinforces the fact that decisions in UPND are made by one man empowered by Article 70 of their Constitution, and no matter how senior the positions that people like my mother Nalumango who come from outside hold, they are just there as decorations for image building because they are ignored when it comes to influencing any decisions in UPND).

Looking back to the Roan Constituency by election, UPND believes that without it’s support, NDC would not have won the Roan election. Today, Hichilema’s UPND believes it was duped and beaten pants down on Roan by my brother Kambwili, hence their resolve to hit back by fielding a candidate in Kitwe’s Lubwa Ward.

There is no honour in and among my brothers Hichilema, Chipimo, Tembo and Kambwili. The current commotion in the alliance is just the culmination of the escalated mutual distrust among them.

Is it a coincidence that my brother Kambwili recently publicly appealed to my brother Hichilema to persuade his UPND officials and MP’s not to disrespect the NDC Consultant? Maybe my brother Kambwili needs to hear what is said about him when he’s not with them?

Is it also a coincidence that my brother Hichilema has publicly and in a spiteful way ignored my brother Kambwili’s passionate pleading in this regard?

Added to the chaotic UPNDC relationship is the subtle fixed ethnic quota system that notoriously restricts the leadership of UPND as a party or in any “alliance” only to individuals from a given background.

CONCLUSION

The opposition UPND “alliance” was not founded on the solid rock of honour, patriotism and national interests. It was founded on sinking sand of bitter envy and slandering the Head of State and to follow the agenda of the selfish interests of one particular person and his pursuit of regional hegemony.

We reaffirm what we have said before:

_“Anything founded on negativity cannot have a positive outcome…He that lieth down with dogs shall rise up with fleas.”_

Things fall apart, my brothers Kambwili, Hichilema, Chipimo, Tembo and the opposition alliance cannot hold.

  1. Kambwili is a schizophrenic toad. How can any sane person take him seriously. Zambians please stop embracing mediocrity and serve yourselves better.

    • Why are you worried about The Alliance if it’s of no consequence to you iwe ka Chanda? The mere fact that you are talking about it means it’s a threat to PF. This reminds me of the impeachment motion on Lungu it started as a “non-factor” but to this date you (PF) has failed to bring it on. Find a better job iwe kaChanda you are such a disgrace to say the least.

    • The Zambian economy has ‘gone to dogs’ yet these PF chaps have all the time talk ill of the opposition alliance.

      Cheap politicking will not feed most Zambians presently going hungry.

      God bless Zambia.

  2. But HH is an embarrassment and very thick headed. Do they think they win an election on their own without the strength of CK on the Copper belt. This guy is hopeless. No wonder he is hated so much.

    • We have not forgotten your brother Chanda Chimba’s propaganda against the late Michael Sata. What he became in 2011 is what you will become in 2021.

  4. LEAVE THEM ALONE.
    WHY ARE YOU SO MUCH CONCERNED ABOUT THE ALLIANCE?
    YOUR ECL WILL NOT GET 50+% IN 2021 BECAUSE OF HIS POOR PERFORMANCE AND MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT WILL VOTE FOR KALABA AND CK ARE THOSE FROM PF WHO HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATED WITH LUNGU.
    SUNDAY CHANDA,DORA SILIYA,BOWMAN LUSAMBO AND MANY MORE,YOU ARE FROM MMD AND IN 2011 YOU STOOD IN KANCHIBIYA AS MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT ON MMD TICKET AND LOST TO PF AND TODAY YOU ARE BUSY INSULTING PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED FOR PF LIKE KBF AND CK.
    WHAT NONSENSE IS THIS BANE?DO NOT TAKE THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA FOR GRANTED. SOME OF US HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN THE INSULTS YOU USED TO SHOWER ON SATA.
    YOU MUST HAVE SHAME SUNDAY CHANDA.
    TODAY PF IS BEHAVING EXACTLY THE WAY MMD USED TO BEHAVE DURING RB’S FINAL DAYS AND FOR YOUR OWN INFORMATION MOST OF THE PEOPLE…

  5. LEAVE THEM ALONE AND AS PF YOU HAVE A BIG BATTLE TO FIGHT.
    REMEMBER MOST OF THE PEOPLE THAT WILL VOTE FOR KALABA AND CK IN 2021 ARE FRUSTRATED MEMBERS OF PF BECAUSE OF YOU SUNDAY CHANDA,DORA SILIYA,BOWMAN LUSAMBO AND MANY MORE WHO YESTERDAY WERE INSULTING PF MEMBERS INCLUDING THE LATE MSC.
    TODAY SUNDAY CHANDA YOU WANT TO LOOK MORE PF MEMBER THAN KBF AND CK WHEN IN 2011 YOU STOOD ON MMD TICKET IN KANCHIBIYA CONSTITUENCY AND LOST TO PF.
    I CAN ASSURE THAT IN 2021,YOUR ECL WILL NOT MANAGE 50+% AND THIS WHAT SHOULD WORRY YOU AND NOT ABOUT THE CRUMBLING OF THE PACT.
    AS FOR UPND,I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THEIR VOTE IS VERY MUCH INTACT.WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE PREVIOUS ELECTIONS.

    • Why do you fools like Kudos believe a silly story like the Tower of Babel. Aren’t there taller buildings in London, Dubai, Shanghai and New York than what those ignorant ancients are thought to have built if at all they existed and did? Hasn’t man gone to the moon? So silly that in the 21still century people

  10. You are shooting down the opposition what are you doing for the Country ? PF government is crumbling under the mountain of Debt. You should be even ashamed of talking about the opposition because you have nothing to write home about. Just the other day you were being mocked by south Africans. You are now the laughing stock of African. Ethiopia for example , in 2018 they received $110bn dollars from private Chinese companies who have 180 projects currently. You, the Chinese are exploiting you, they can only afford loans.

  12. PF clean up yourselves and meet voters’ expectations. The dysfunctional state of opponents should never give you a relief. A day is long in politics. In our Zambian democracy, opposition political party Alliances are certainly a figment of Grand delusion because they are born on issues of zero national importance but personal presidency dreams. They go into political limbo the sooner they are born. Some usually apply the so-called alliance platforms as tools of negotiation for relevance. Thus, irrespective of the political heat in the polity on myriad issues today, Zambians the final arbiter of ballot power, are sober as always to guard against falling for a circus.

  13. I always think people should learn from history. History taught us that when a leader does not read the times as Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula did when he stuck with ANC when its time was up. Some progressive Tongas jumped ship when they saw that Nkumbula was not leading them anywhere. The progressive Tongas in the names of Mudenda, Chona etc left ANC and became part of the team that formed ZANC while Nkumbula continued with ‘nowhere’ party ANC. When ZANC was banned it was another progressive Tonga who saw it fit to form UNIP when Kaunda was in Jail. Kaunda later became leader of UNI; Chona saw a national party in UNIP and left directionless ANC. Where are the progressive Tongas to be counted again? Why should they continue to stick with UPND which is seen as a tribal party as ANC finally…

  14. A delegation of over 50 Chinese from the China Non Ferocious Mining Company (CNMC) has made a second evaluation tour of Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) as the sale of the mine nears completion.
    Vedanta Resources that owned 79 per cent of the mine is contesting the government’s takeover in the courts, arguing that the move will make them lose out millions of dollars invested in the mine.
    Sources have revealed that over 50 Chinese nationals have put themselves in groups to tour the Finance Department, Human Resource and IT in their familiarization tour of KCM.
    It has further been reported that two Chinese lawyers, Lui Jin and Chang SJ, are part of the team and familiarized themselves at the Legal Department.

    “As I speak to you now, a delegation of over 50 leading Chinese business people…

  15. pf have failed to run the country better find ways to mend their wounds other than fight the opposition parties and even follow them where ever they go. this issue has got nothing to do with pf its upnd/ndc issue which is only simply to solve. people want food, they want money, they want electricity, medicine, education of higher learning universities, salaries of workers and retirees. everyone knows pf is in confusion, due to corruption and stealing.

  18. Imwe, when you seriously analyse the stench, do you honestly in your sober mind think HH and Kambwili can work together even for a year? Look people, it doesn’t call for a genius to tell you that all these are hungry hyenas and wild dogs each ready to have a big share of a kill. When in such situations its war and no one can let go of the kill. So its a waste of time trying to ever imagine anyone of these jackles to be head of state.

  20. Just the immaturity of Sunday Chanda, misinformation as a strategy will lead to nothing.Typing garbage will not win you votes, for once start to act like an employee of the party in power and bring us meaningful conversations.
    This kind of Drivel won’t help your PF, Your office needs a critical thinker or for that matter a thinker.

  21. Such an irritating style of writing from this chanda person!! Brother this and that and unprofessional language is not the believable way to express yourself. This guy is no role model at all, and his writing sounds like he was under the influence of some illicit substance or alcohol! Bad example of a politician-anyway, nothing surprises me with this lot!!

  23. Sunday worry about yourself and mind your own business instead of being in other people’s business. Amos was like that, tearing down a fellow country man night and day, look now where he is. You next, you will be discarded like a used condom. Learn from older politicians who know how to stay silent you never you going to need the person you insult night and day

  24. I would love Sunday to also comment on what Nakachinda said concerning PF and MMD alliance, where he said PF can not win an election without MMD. from this statement, and considering the election results in 2016, where does it leave PF if MMD decided to pull out of the alliance (which is most likely considering the way Mutati has been treated y PF)?
