UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema
UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema

By Anthony Bwalya

Let us be very clear: The Patriotic Front (PF) were elected on an illusion – an illusion that was energized by what had become a natural hatred for RB’s MMD regime which had become a collective autocraticy, epitomized by excessive state control using money as bait against a population that was becoming increasingly impoverished.

The long suffering citizens of Zambia had practically been compelled to erode every requirement for us to objectively interrogate the PF’s agenda for mass public sector reforms. The PF, while in opposition, made a lot of fantom promises whose realisation was never backed up by any sound rationalization of what the long term objective was ever going to be.

Yet, in all this, one Michael Chilufya Sata was the only innocent dreamer, whose dream for his people was later to be hijacked and stolen by a pack of hungry wolves who interpreted the collective loyalty of Zambians as an unimpeded license to launder our country, it’s people and resources for private profit.

The nostalgia for Michael’s dream was evident in 2015 and 2016, when a candidate in Edgar C. Lungu, who not only admitted to having NO PERSONAL VISION for our country, but had also failed an INTEGRITY TEST in the private legal practice when he got entangled into financial impropriety involving a client and was disbarred from the bench and legal practice by the Law Association of Zambia – but was elected TWICE to serve as head of state.

This is how much Zambians loved Michael, that we were prepared to trust a rogue with our collective fortunes.

But after 8 long years of consented introspection, as individuals, families, communities and as a nation, Zambians have finally come to an agreement: that in order to clarify and recapture Michael’s dream, we have to put it into the hands of those who can interpret it for the benefit of ALL Zambians, irrespective of our political affiliations.

Michael SATA always knew how sound the UPND’s agenda was. This is why he was more inclined to collaborating with Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND in realigning his dream with what the UPND had consistently preached.
In his heart of hearts, Sata loathed corruption as much as he loathed social and economic inequalities. He also despised how the MMD abused the rule of law to prevent him from exercising his constitutional rights to meet and greet with ordinary people.

These were the things Michael Sata knew the UPND were deeply passionate about resolving, and that was the basis of his association with Hakainde Hichilema.

Specifically, Michael Sata dreamed of the following:

1. More money in our pockets and lower taxes

Under the post Sata PF regime, Zambians are now close to K600 worse off per month at the point of sale thanks to wages being overtaken by inflation. Also, Zambians are now another K600 out of pocket in taxes per month, both direct and indirect taxes, as the PF of Edgar Lungu have prioritized over – taxation as tool of centralized power and control.

Therefore, this has effectively driven the national food basket for a family of 6 to the brink of K7,000. The result is poverty, hunger and destitution at household level. But it is not only the access to food that is under threat, is it also the finished ability for households nto afford a decent roof over their heads, water and sanitation, energy services, education and quality health services.

This is why today, more than 62% of Zambians live on less than $1.25 per day, with another 40% classed as extremely poor, and close to 500,000 having no access to a secure food source everyday.

UPND RESPONSE STRATEGY

The UPND has committed to giving economic power and choice back to individuals, households and small businesses. Our proposal is to reform the PAYE taxation model towards a MEANS TESTED model, so that through tax reallocations, we can transfer more resources towards the micro economy.

This is why we have proposed for an increase in the PAYE tax exempt threshold from the current K3,300 to K4,000; as well as revising downwards the upper tax bracket from the current 37.5% to 22.5% as a way of delivering actual, guaranteed resources into the hands of individuals and households, and further as a means to catalyse micro economic activity for rapid growth and job creation.

2. Less Corruption

After what had become rampant, unhindered corruption by and under the MMD regime, the PF had campaigned on the premise that they will fight grand and political corruption, so that public resources can only be applied to and for the benefit of Zambians as a whole.

However, both grand and political corruption have not only spiked, but these are now being perpetrated under the umbrella of state capture – where elected officials and public institutions have remotely been taken over by power private business interests and big money lobbyists who are diverting over 60% of all public revenue and debt money away from projects of vital public utility, and instead into the pockets of these private actors and their conniving political accomplices.

Since 2011, Corruption under the PF has cost Zambians in excess of $10 billion, with less than 40% of all debt money having actually been committed to public projects; and public project procurement being the primary conduit.

The result is a mountain of public debt which the PF government can never dismantle.

UPND RESPONSE STRATEGY

Our approach and commitment towards corruption is 100% zero tolerance. This means a UPND adminstration is committed to upholding only the highest standard of integrity when it comes to the management of public resources.

The UPND is on the record, as having committed to the review and reform of the public procurement act to deliver value for money procurement, as well as committing to establishing a public project procurement appraisal unit under then AG’s office, to ensure that all projects are independently scrutinized for value for money opportunities.

The UPND has also committed to instituting Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs) as a means to expedite the process of recovering property suspected of having been illegally acquired.

And the foregoing are merely a snippet of the lies and broken promises of and by the PF, but with he UPND presenting and offering a credible, clearly rationalized agenda for change and reform.

Under the PF regime, we have watched expanses of land and Forest reserves have been abused and shared by government Ministers and CADRES, and in the process compromising the integrity of our environment and several water sources.

It is also under this regime, under President Edgar Lungu, that over $3 million in social cash transfer money was stolen by agents of the PF, depriving several thousands of our people of the much needed welfare support. The UPND is prepared to devolve the functioning of this system, so that the process of identifying beneficiaries is done at community level and without the undue interference of political actors.

Zambians must also never forget how $400,000 worth of test kits were stolen from the MoH, as well as $4m worth of expired drugs having been bought. The result was that many thousands of lives were put at risk, with hundreds lost owing to the appetite for profiteering by PF actors.

We also know how many billions of dollars have been stolen in public contracts to build roads and other infrastructure projects, whose return on investment is just far below the cost of the debt money procured to fund these projects. The consequences are that many of these projects will never be able to pay for themselves, and that several generations of Zambians will have to pay for this in higher taxes.

But even then, the UPND are saying there is another way around all this.

With new leadership, we can restore trust in public leadership and energize new discussions around our collective problems and map out new solutions – together.

What we cannot do, what Zambians must never do is allow a breed of failed politicians mascarading as leaders, to stay another day longer than is necessary in office.

We have already lost at least 20 years worth of development under the PF.

It’s time to start reversing the damage.

It’s time to trust the UPND under President Hakainde Hichilema to do the job.

Very healthy toddlers, but naive and speaking out of turn when adults do amazing leadership maneuvers. As seen when president Lungu ( who I only ever partially agree with; because his flaw is traveling way too much ) ate a puff adder deliciously cooked by the air force special forces and the attached that to hunger in Zambia. Forgetting that the allegiances of their three maison in Europe not only perform duties with same sex partners, but are reported to sacrifice under fives, imagine?

      And this man Antony Bwalya is very good. He should be in the top 5 in leadership of upnd. He articulates issues soundly and deeply. Keep it up!

    • This article is by a foolish tribalist trying to polish his thieving tribesman Sata. Chiluba revealed how Sata, as minister, had banked ministry money in his personal account to enjoy the interest. Recent revelations have told us how euro bonds for 200 million meant for Zambia railways was stolen by Sata. We all remember how Dr Chirwa was made a scape goat with corruption allegations without taking him to court. Sata took roads contracts to State house & shared tenders with his tribesmen. That corruption foundation his purpets continued to date.

    • The problem with PF is that they don’t have people who articulate issues.. Most of them just make statements.. PF has done quiet a lot… I have never seen such massive development in infrastructure for the past 40 years of my existence… But the fact is development is costly.. you have choose development or cheap mealie meal and fuel etc… To develop infrastructure massively like that, the other sectors will suffer… So PF has chosen to development over subsidizes which zambians are used to. I still think PF under Edgar are on the right track but they luck proper interaction and communication to the citizen.

Most of us educated Zambians are not into the PF dununa reverse kind of chipante pante bush politics. Yesterday I watched the Chinese national day parade, I was envious of the Chinese. What an able sober leadership they have. Guys leadership makes a difference and between HH and ECL, HH has a proven track record. We ain’t demonising ECL and PF all we are saying is they should not be given another chance to lead the nation, they are inept.

    • Of course trust is broken in politics. But you cannot blame the lies the PF and PRESIDENT Lungu have told on the UPND and HH. We have to be objective and look at things broadly. Loadshedding is a culmination of a lot of things, all bordering around the institutional inefficiencies of ZESCO, made worse by bad politics. And if you want more of the same as we have witnessed under the PF, then sure, go on and keep them in power. But if you want a chance at something different, then vote for the UPND.

      The entire upndead leadership machinery needs a new start.
      Go to a Convention, remove Katuka, Kakoma and most of all H²; and all cliques that usurped power on tribal lines must be scrapped. Upndead needs a corporate rebrand, a business process reengineering, a serious restructuring effort. Put on a national face. Hummgh! 3 provinces ati now we’re ready? Those are jokes comrades.
      You will see; heads will turn.

  3. Zambians are not ready for a three Maison gay supporting privatization thief. Who is only a dictator of UPND because of Sejani. Zambians might not have financial resources, but they have intellectual thinking minds. Stop with your delusions. You lost two of your stronghold seats i.e Kafue when you floated a jezebel home dozer remember? Plus the PF has grabbed more local seats from UPND, than any other time in your history. In fact if you continue like this they might grab seats in the southern province from UPND in 2021. FDD is the only way to go as opposition.

      It’s not time yet.

      When Zambians desire change, every animal with a heartbeat and breathe knows. It’s on everybody’s lips.

      It happens almost automatically. Without violence and force.
      If you’ve been voting for one party since 1991 or 2001 or 2006, then you’re a sick man, uprogressive and most probably TRIBAL.
      1991, I voted FTJ’s MMD; 1996, I voted Dean Mungomba’s ZADECO; 2001, Anderson Mazoka’s UPND; 2006, MCS’s PF; 2008-2016 MCS’s and ECL’s PF.
      Never UPNDEAD. I will never give H²’s UPNDEAD my valuable vote come sunshine, come rain. Why? Because Sejani and Chiefee’ Mukuni clogged my path. I am capable of changing but never for tribalists.

    • So in 2001 I felt (personal conviction) that FTJ’s ECZ stole votes from Andy and lavished them on LPM.
      I never saw LPM the same. I was at loggerheads with his policies good or bad because I hate thieves. I had a sympathetic paradigm shift on him when Mmembe hailed unprintables on him though through that Post Newspaper. He died a hero to many nevertheless.
      That time I didn’t know how hard working ECZ works. Today, I have come to appreciate their work and have great respect for them. Maybe Andy just lost that one just like H² always misses.
      Some people are just not meant to lead this country. H² risks a third time cruel beating at the polls. No offense.

  5. The reason PF will continue in power after 2021 is not because they are popular or worthy.Far from it.It is because UPND is unattractive to majority of Zambians and not worthy to be in power. UPND has failed to change it`s poor public image and public perception about itself.Apart from HH and perhaps Gary Nkombo, the UPND leadership with the likes of Kakoma,Katuka,Nalumango,Mwiimbu lacks charisma and militancy necessary for an opposition political party to attract overwhelming public support to decisively win an election .Why has the UPND, having lost elections many times, continued with the same unimpressive people at the top?Politics anywhere has no absolute morality and sometimes you need more scoundrels like Sata,Lusambo,Kambwili,Mwaliteta,Mumbi Phiri,Nsanda etc just for the simple…

We were told roads were all paced nicely and there was massive development. Not quite… I drove to the Copperbelt and I encountered long patches of gravel dusty roads and potholes with dangerous narrow (one lane each direction) roads and yet I paid toll like 5 times on the same road with no explanation from those collecting it except to say it was ‘law’. Then I drove to Western province and the potholes there were like trenches with tolls too.

There was an article on ZCCM holding, and other articles on business, it attracted less bloggers despite being educative articles. This is how low we have become. Politics divide the nation owing to the fact that people find it a platform of insulting others. It is a big shame that the nation has been clustered into political groups. All these clusters want to flex their muscles on who is better and who is worst. They have formed political groups of degrading one another.

With all the load shedding; hunger and poverty; huge taxes about everything including boreholes and road tolls on dusty and potholed roads; massive corruption, incompetence and pretty much an entire country being a sh*thole ghetto, they are still in denial and thinking this is normal. Is it low IQ or some kind of voodoo curse?

      Why?
      1. Thievery is bad. We currently have no control over our mines.
      2. Tax evasion is bad. Stolen money from Zambia is busy employing millions in places where it is stashed e.g Panama.
      3. Tribalism is corruption much like nepotism. That’s why he can’t effectively compaign in other provinces.
      4. Evil is bad. He has not addressed Chomba and Tayali’s tree mansion claims. Zambians relate Masonic Temples to satanist’s den.

  13. Dear author it is good to write an article about a politics but get facts right. Upnd pulled out of the coalition with PF because hh wanted to lead. Therefore they did not share the vision of pf. MCS was not an ‘innocent dreamer’ he was a man on a mission. Recall a Min without portfolio who received government monies and deposited it in to his private account earned interest in his ‘innocence’. He appointed half the rogues superintending over affairs of this nation. If that’s the vision your hh is seeking to bring to the table then perhaps you had better have a rethink. We need change but your man just doesn’t have the change we need. Sorry mbuya.

Instead of talking about solutions like job creation for those in the streets who can’t afford even a ka pamela. How much are you paid for all these years for your work.

WE ARE READY FOR HH THE MAN WHO HAVE MADE THESE THIEVES HAVE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS THANK YOU.YOU CAN TELL FROM THE BITTERNESS .

  22. Those who speak loudest about corruption are usually the most corrupt. Here is someone who is stinking rich and he doesn’t want to be questioned how he got rich or to share with fellow Zambians how to create wealth. You consider a guy like that honest? He even consciously chooses a running mate from among the most corrupt citizens!

  23. I hate it when UPND try to use dull bembas such this so called Anthony Bwalya without any political record about himself!!Tribal party shall always remain UPND under HH.Get it from me Bwalya,yes you need a job but you are fighting a losing battle.Your Kainde can never be voted by majority bemba speaking people and Easterners who are the majority voters in Zambia!!!Come 20/08/2021 you guys in UPND will be singing the rigging chorues-mark my words!!!UPND as a party could have ruled Zambia after Mr Sata’s death,but many people in Zambia have nothing to do with HH.My vote and that of clan can never be for HH even if mealie meal reaches K1000 per 25KG,$1 equals K500,one litre of petro reaches K100,etc-NEVER!!!Hence,if you’re basing your confidence on current bad economic situation in…

    Hence if you are basing your confidence on current economic situation in Zambia,then DREAM ON because our economy has been bad since 2012 but PF still wins elections!!UPND must take note that majority voters in Zambia who are villagers do not buy fuel,mealie meal,know nothing about exchange rate,etc.Even those in urban areas,many vote on tribal lines!!!ONCE JK,CHESTER,DANDY CRAZY AND THE CO BEAT THE DRUMS(MUSIC)-HH WONT KNOW WHAT WILL HIT HIM IN 2021!!Thus for now UPND can dream.Believe you me,the time ECL will kick off the campaigns from Heroes stadium in 2021,Kainde will appear in political arena as if its a game between Liverpool (ECL) vs Monze Swallows(HH)!!!Politics teyabana iyo and nobody wins elections by dreaming via the media!!ZAMBIANS CANT WAIT FOR 2021 TO LAUGH…

  25. Zambia is not ready for a Tonga President. Tonga’s are a very greedy people only want things to themselves. Given an opportunity, they can just be promoting themselves in the civil service aswell as private sector.

  26. UPND is compromised by outside sponsors who will look to capture our country through its leader. Stop imposing HH on the Zambian people. We have had enough of reckless leaders whose interest is only to better themselves and those around them. Just like we feared for our country when PF was ushered in, this HH will be worse than all of them because he has had time to plan how he will sell the country to his so-called international friends. We need a leader who will unite Zambia and make this country great again but unfortunately, that leader is NOT HH.

  27. @civilised the problem with kariba damn isn’t the rains…. it’s that other than rains we have no alternative sources for water to fill the kariba. KARIBA DOESN’T NEED RAINS TO PRODUCE ELECTRICITY IT ONLY NEEDS WATER. waiting for rains is a lack of imagination solution.

  29. Its true this time we need change not someone who fears to face pipo who voted him answer querries only uses airport tarmarks to talk knowing no one will ask. Valden Findlay, 48 houses, kenya trip alone, no payment for retirees, failed duo carriage from lusaka – ndola, where money for toll-gates goes, failing to fire the boxer political adviser and maney corrupt ministers, from his mouth I HAVE NO VISSION FOR Z, etc etc. Advise to ecl best thing to do now is to follow what your friend did in botswana, you will have respect. when God says its over, its over wether you usher in 50 pipo in the strong room this time it wont work.
