The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) says it is unfortunate that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has failed to recognize the positive feedback from the financial market following the appointment of new Finance Minister Dr. Bwalya Ng’andu.

PF Media Director Sunday Chanda said in a statement issued to the media on Tuesday following the press briefing by the UPND leader, that it is a shame that the UPND leader spoke ill of Zambia’s economy when the international media had asked for his comment on the appointment of Dr. Ng’andu.

Mr. Chanda said Mr. Hichilema has no shame in describing the positive response of financial instruments such as Eurobonds after His Excellency President Edgar Lungu appointed Dr. Ng’andu as a new minister in charge of finance.

“The UPND leader shamelessly described the positive feedback from financial market as a ‘knee jerk reaction’. Already, Mr. Hichilema is looking down on the new minister,” he said.

On the formation of Anti-Drugs, Economic and Financial Crimes Agency, Mr. Chanda said the UPND leader demonstrated alarming levels of ignorance.

Mr. Chanda emphasized that this was a proposal that the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has been asking for since 2010 to rename DEC and that they made a submission concerning this issue.

He further emphasized that DEC‘s mandate extends to financial and economic crimes stressing that the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) was never established by the constitution.

Coming to the NDF resolutions, the PF Media Director accused Mr. Hichilema of playing double standards when it comes to matters of the constitution.

Mr. Chanda indicated that the UPND leader has on several occasions described Zambia’s supreme law of the land as a ‘sham’.

He said the PF Government is a listening one and that is why they want to give the peopleof Zambia what they deserve.

“On Wednesday 6th January 2019, when he featured on Hot FM’s Special Programme, Mr. Hichilema said the amended constitution was a sham and a disgrace to the Zambian people. Today 16th July, 2019, during a press briefing at his residence, he said and I quote ‘Here are some of the continued but negative attempts by the PF to mutilate our constitution, our beautiful constitution’ end of quote. Isn’t this comedy? When did the sham and disgrace of the constitution become a beautiful one” he questioned.

He maintained that the National Dialogue Forum was very independent of the Patriotic Front

    • Ba Chanda so you believe just getting into office of BN is the solution to the massive fiscal problems the PF have created?? You must be joking …. The guy has to work and the PF govt have to prove themselves that they are committed to the fiscal measures introduced by the previous Ministers in the portfolio otherwise your criticism of HH on this matter has no backbone … We were given assurances when Maggie was appointed the President went as far as saying People will thank him later …Here we are after 1 year same story again with BN

    • There is nothing positive about anything PF does.

      They are a bunch of komboni thieves and accidentally stumbled into office.

      Their mission is to plunder the economy.

      They have no shame or interest in our country.

    • The whole world knows that HH will never step foot in State House of Zambia hence his negative propaganda and crusade about Zambia and especially on PF and President Lungu. To him nothing good can ever come out of President Lungu especially that he hails from Chawama. If a man cant see the good that the infrastructure development is bringing to the country and he cant see good in Government intervention in KCM which has neglected the miners forvso long and of his mishandling of privatisation saga, do you even pay attention to such a time waster?
      PF must just be focused on delivery development and services and this will kill HH naturally.

    • This boy Sunday Foooking Chanda, he should call his office Project HH media dept…I mean your Justice Minister was properly clobbered by PF cadres you were quiet the moment you hear Hakainde or the alliance you run to typing. You have no plans at all no vision just a corrupt boy who thrives in lawlessness.

    • I agree with you, that one does not have to respond to everything HH says. On the same token, some poeple like HH need to be put in their right place and be reminded of where they belong because they have such short memories. HH is a lose cannon, he is so desperate that he thinks going to plot 1 is more important than the country itself. For him plot one is priority no. 1 everthing else can crumble under then sun but plot 1 for him. If he was not put in his right place by Lungu after the Mongu fracas, I do not know what would have become of our great nation. We need opposition yes, but not this clueless destructive mentallity of yesteryear.

    • This Sunday Chanda confirms what I have been thinking that he doesn’t sleep over HH and that his party the PF is jittery over HH always seeking and expecting some kind of approval or praise from the opposition party leader on everything that the PF does! Sunday is at 24/7 surveillance of UPND and its leadership trying hard to instigate a spat!

  1. We now have a minister of finance.

    You dont need hh aproval so please get on with business.

    Please Doc. You are not a cardre. Do your work proffesional. World bank chaps are your personal friends. Call them for a bailout package
    $10 debt is not too big for 15billion people as long as we STOP wastage on FIC

    We are even better than Greece and Italy

    • Please stop exposing your dullness in public.

      You grasp of facts is lacking. Here is a reality check.

      Greece and Italy have much better roads, much better schools with desks, much better hospitals with much lower infant mortality, a rule of law, a democracy, and so many other attributes that makes it impossible for a sane person to draw comparisons.

      Your cadre thinking is what is killing our country.

    • @ indigol. Thes issue is not the amounts . Its how the debt is used and managed. @$10b is a small amount.

      Rather refer to FIC

      If you did basics in micro economics you will understand that capital projects boost the economy because of multiplier effect.

      Good roads are good. Yes Greece may have good infrastructure but it came at cost.

      Zambia today has been linked up including urban roads. Today every compound has a tarred road including chibolya.

      The only disheartening issues is that govt officials are making personal fortune dubbed ubomba mwibala.

    • @Doubting Thomas
      We are against theft of public resources but jusr mere allegations against people you dont like wont get you anywhere, please prove you claims. You can even go to foreign news media and present your evidence assuming you have it, then people will take a second look at you otherwise PF is yet to defeat you squarely in 2021, you have no idea what PF is doing countrywide.

    • @3.1 By “what PF is doing countrywide” – would this include Roan Constituency in Luanshya? Last time l looked, you were soundly beaten! This will be the way things will be in 2021!

  3. The only day HH will recognize anything positive about Zambia is when he becomes President. Unfortunately that day will never come because the majority of voters know what they are dealing with. A privatization thief who became UPND president on tribal grounds.

  4. Changing a driver on a damaged bus does not fix the bus. What’s Chanda’s issue with HH’s comment?

  5. at one time i was looking forward to give HH my vote, but after i came to realize that he does not see any thing good done by PF, I lost hope for him, mwe bantu even 2021 pliz PF is the right choice, even in a house if the husband does not see not even one good thing done by the wife, then just know that he is a problem.

    • The reqson he does not see anything good that PF does is becoz there is nothing good that PF does!!
      Simply appointing a “good driver to drive a broken down bus” (as some has succinctly put it), will not solve the problem.
      I agree with HH!

  6. Useless chanda you want HH to say something without him seeing any tangible results from ngandus appointment yet? You must be the worlds most celebrated *****. Ngandu has to show something from his appointnent first before we can praise him. What if ngandu becomes useless Like his predecessors wont you be one to quickly point at HH to say but you also supported the decision. You want HH to support every useless thing you do that ends up failing?.

  8. PF is going to win 2021 reason we don’t have strong strong ???? opposition to take over from PF. HH is dictator from 2006 update still on opposition party not changing president?HH won’t understand when he will loose 2021 it’s because of himself, people can vote for upnd to government if they change their leader of upnd.he is not the only man can rule zambia he has been rejected so many times people think of changing him before it’s too late.after 2021 he will wait for another 5 years? I can vote for upnd if you remove kainde

    • We know your type you people are so scared to death of HH and all you want is for him to surrender the presidency to someone else within upnd so that the party can die a natural death. Leave us with HH to be at the helm coz he has lots of money to fund the party and when he becomes president then he will groom someone to take over. Watch the space, he isn’t selfish

  9. Bonzoman stay away from HH with ur baseless comments . How many opposition parties stood in 2016? Thy were more than 4 opposition parties. If u feel UPND was not factor why didn’t replace them with other opposition parties. Wisdom pls not opening ur big mouth because u eating with them.

  10. Let Bonzoman and his pf keep thinking there is no opposition they will be in the opposition asking questions what happened. Pf barely won in 2016 unlike others in east and central Africa who win by a margin of 96 percent. If there was no opposition pf government wouldn’t be this broke, you have spent all the money on bribing people. Come 2021 there will be nothing to bribe the people with plus your lies are catching up with you.

  13. Chanda, Bloomberg is just doing a speculation and that’s what they do. So even investors are speculating maybe something good will come out of this guy. Shameful thing is you guys think all is well not knowing these investors will be watching to see if the dude will live up to the hype. If the guy doesn’t come up with anything positive those investors will dump your bonds

  14. Trust politicians at your peril. It was just last week when they were having a good time and sharing jokes. This time they want to pretend as if they are at loggerheads. People should take politicians sentiments with a pinch of salt. Don’t insult each other over politicians. They are all cut from the same cloth of deception. They create an impression as if they hate each other.

  15. So UPND thinks only HH or foreigners can steer the country’s economy to greatness, what Bluff! Its this kind of underrating and underestimating others by HH and UPND that will continue haunting them. Who told this HH that everyone in Zambia who has been to all school levels dont have brains except him? This behaviour hates and it will not go unpunished.

  20. bakainde bena fyonse tefisuma, remember how he opposed the building of roads, the creation of new districts and above all the rebasing of the Kwacha. Today he does not comment on the good things brought by this development apf has done. It is faster to go Kalabo today than it was for 27years Yama was in power. Such sentiments, by the way, are just campaign tools for apf. If anything he must commend apf for having listened to the voices of groups and people who are against the introduction of deputy ministers and formation of coalition government! A coalition always brings instability.

  23. one wonders whether pf cadres go to sleep. even when hh just coughs they start bucking like dogs. for sure which world knew that the late mr m c sata would enter state house, which world knew that the late ftj chiluba would enter state house which world knew that the late l p mwanawasa would enter state house or even mr rb banda, in case some of you are the ones said to have short memories consults those with good memories. we have seen hh s ability, capability and above all his intelligence and wisdom. come 2021 he will be there.

  25. You can appoint whom ever you want but the fiscal challenges of this country cannot be overcome by a mere appointment of an individual who is not even an economist. Wasnt he at BOZ where the financial direction of the country is derived..? Kagame is doing wonders for that country while we dance to a head of state who in the midst of national poverty, shamelessly buys another JET! Even a million NB with a billion times more IQ will not solve our economic ills as long as there is no political will from those in power!

  26. ITS A PITY THAT CHANDA AND THE ENTIRE PF DO NOT APPRECIATE THE WORK OF FIC. FROM THE TIME THE FIC 2019 REPORT WAS PUBLISHED THE PF SEEMS RESTLESS IN ITS PLANS TO GET RID OF FIC. WHEN CHANDA SAYS “the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) was never established by the constitution” IT MEANS THERE ARE SERIOUS PLANS TO ERASE FROM EXISTENCE. THEY WANT IT TO BE A DEPARTMENT UNDER DEC TO CONTROLLED BY PF CADRE MBAHWAY THE CURRENT OWNER OF DEC. BUT IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT DEC IS MORALLY BANKRUPT AND CURRENTLY UNDER RECEIVERSHIP.
