Bwana Mkubwa Member of Parliament Jonas Chanda has called on some opposition political party leaders not to politicise climate change and the hunger situation in some parts of the country.

Dr. Chanda says the current hunger situation in some parts of the country is due to the harsh effects of climate change.

He says government is however coming up with interventions to address climate change while the opposition has engaged in cheap politics.

Dr. Chanda says President Edgar Lungu was very clear in his recent address to the National Assembly that government is committed to achieving sustainable development through climate smart methods.

He says it is unfortunate that most politicians and civil society organizations do not take time to read and understand President Lungu’s speech.

Dr. Chanda was speaking when he featured on the PF Interactive Forum to make a review of President Edgar Lungu’s speech during the official opening of the 4th session of the 12th National Assembly.

And Dr Chanda has urged politicians not to attach partisan interests in the constitution refinement process.

Meanwhile, PF Media Director Sunday Chanda has called on Zambians to support government’s development agenda.

Mr. Chanda said Zambians must disregard politicians who only want to gain political mileage over serious issues.

    • This Chanda brothers are worse than Maikoni brothers.
      The Maikoni brothers were not annoying people on daily basis.
      Defense minister GBM was responsible for the Maikoni brothers, he should think about the Chanda brothers too, they keep pushing him away from PF too.

    • Person in nice suit, glasses and tie talk such rubbish, the designers of those products must be ashamed.
      He does don’t even know what politics means;
      1. the activities associated with the governance of a country or area, especially the debate between parties having power.
      2. activities aimed at improving someone’s status or increasing power within an organization.

    • There is no single doubt both in my (Job Wiwa Sikhala, MDC National Vice Chairman) conscience and my heart that Dr. Peter Magomeyi was savagely tortured by societal outcasts in our country this 21st century.
      Having listened to the telephone conversation between Dr Magombeyi and the Studio 7 reporter after reports that he has been dumped in Nyabira, the traits of a tormented soul as manifested to me after my torture on the 13th of January 2003 together with Advocate Gabriel Shumba, Taurai Magaya and Charles Mutama was clear.
      It is important to share with everyone and the whole world what happened to me and others I mentioned above from the practical victim knowledge.
      On midnight of the 12th of January 2003, myself, my lawyer Advocate Gabriel Shumba, Taurai Magaya, Charles Mutama and…

      Bishop Shumba were raided by a joint operation team of the military, Central Intelligence Organization, the Criminal Investigation Department (Law and Order) at Nyamutamba Hotel.
      They came with a battalion and convey of motor vehicles and stormed into our rooms at the hotel during midnight of the day in question. We were initially taken to St. Mary’s Police Station briefly I think it was for their administrative purposes.
      We were then driven to Matapi Police Station were they dropped Taurai Magaya into the holding cells. We proceeded to Mbare Police Station were they detained Adv Gabriel Shumba. Myself and Charles Mutama were taken to Harare Central Police Station.
      Then around 6pm of the 13th I and Charles Mutama were taken out of Harare Central Police Station holding cells…

      We were taken out by 6 members from the Law and Order section who were Garnet Sikhova, Chrispen Makedenge, Matsvimbo, Mhashu and 2 others who are now dead whose names can not be remembered in the immediacy because of the lapse of time.
      We did not notice that the two of us were taken out at the same time. It was only after we were brought back to the holding cells that we shared what happened, that we noticed that we were taken out at the same time with Charles Mutama.
      Unbeknown to us, was that, Advocate Gabriel Shumba who was my lawyer and Taurai Magaya had a torrid day of torture before they were returned back.
      They were blind folded and taken to an unknown destination which we later understood to be Kabri Barracks after some torturers came to confess to us after having…

  1. “……called on some opposition political party leaders not to politicise climate change and the hunger situation in some parts of the country….”

    Rubbish ……what he means is do not politicise lungus incompetence ……

    A country with the most 24/7/365 rivers in southern Africa , drought should not affect food security…….

    Lungu and his gang were busy dancing and looting when they had billions to spend.

    Canals and dams would have kept Zambia ever green…..

  2. Ikalenifye naimwe!
    It looks like ba Chanda my PF tabakwata amano. Here is the breakdown:

    1. Sunday Chanda
    2. Jonas Chanda
    3. Amos Chanda
    4. Kafupi kakunkubiti Chanda
    I have wise Chanda friends but these PF Chanda’s are not even bootlickers but A$$ lickers!
    You are an embarrassment to the Chanda clan! Don’t allow Sly Easterners to reduce you to useful idi0ts!
    So far, it is clear who is politicizing hunger – the ones who keep denying the seriousness of the problem and yet are busy parading themselves and giving tuma 12.5kg in Green and White! The PF ranks and file are definitely out of tune because every Jim and Jack is the party spokesperson! What a Schizophrenic party we have! Learn to listen to opposition, Diplomatic, Civil Society and ALL Zambian voices! PF must stop behaving…

  3. Climate change is the latest excuse for failed leadership. Instead of applying a constructive action plan, there is your President in New York & his Vice in India while a spare part acts as president when clearly the Hunger situation is a national crisis that needs to be addressed

  4. Purpose of Government is to offer leadership when the country faces challenges like climate change
    You Guys have no clue on how to manage Zambia
    The best management you know is to loot and fatten your filthy pockets. for how long are you going to do this?
    No wonder we are suffering, how can we end up with people who used to sell Imishanga as leaders today.
    THIS COUNTRY will not stop to amaze me
    Zambia twasebana -Shame on us

  5. Hi this is neez wife . Yes the white one! It is not in my nature to get involved in this forum but I have been forced to due to how you are treating my husband. This unfair treatment is disgusting to say the least. Why is he blocked for sharing his opinion and life on this forum? People like you are the reason the African continent remains backwards. There is no harm in my husband talking about me or his personal life. I have never seen a note or rule on your website to that effect. It seems you just decide who to block and censure as you feel. Censorship won’t take you far. Change for the best. Yours sincerely elisax

  6. It seems like these Chanda beings went to the same below average school? What is it that they don’t get about climate change? Chanda, please don’t insult our intelligence as we all know what climate change is!! You don’t need to have a degree in environmental disaster science to explain what is going on globally!! Do you not know that climate change/global warming has resulted ion the decline of food supply ? The problem we have is how you the so called keepers of this country have reacted to this problem. You have known for a long time that these climatic changes will affect certain parts of the country and instead of preparing before the problem occurs, you have sat watching and feeling up your pockets. When the problem has arisen, you have politicized the issue and let people…

  7. When the problem has arisen, you have then politicized the issue and left your citizens to suffer with hunger.
    You can not say that this is not to be politicized because it is a political concern. Why are you running away from responsibilities? So when Lungu says he has donated bags of mealie meal to a certain area, we must not make political connections? He is a politician and therefore it has to be politicized. When the opposition donates you start making noise and you suppress them and see it in a negative way? People all over the world have taken part in self denial activities and they have donated without appearing to compete with one another. Grow up and start being responsible adults!!

  10. With these PF criminals, it’s always warning this one, treason that one, fighting there and so forth! Well, Samuel Doe, Charles Taylor, Mugabe and Mubutu used the same threatening language and we all know how it all ended. Especially Ngulube Tutwa and Dora, they need to be recorded and prosecuted one day, for scare mongering stupidity!
