By: Anthony Bwalya – UPND Member

Over the course of the 8 years the Patriotic Front (PF) have been at the helm of government, it is undoubted high ranking government officials, through the wanton abuse of the institutional authority and privilege they enjoy, have not only abused public resources, but also systematically diverted economic gains away from millions of Zambians through the accumulation of private property and profit.

We have overwhelming, institutional evidence against a good number of PF government officials who are engaged in grand theft and corruption involving public resources, manipulation of public processes for personal gain, including details of commissions individuals have been receiving for committing our country to public debt we cannot repay and without due regard to process.

This information is known not only in Zambia, but also available to many international cooperating partners whose citizens have lost millions of dollars and Euros through corruption and plunder at the hands of corrupt PF government officials.

But cooperating partners have now realised, that it would be unethical and against the spirit of our shared humanity, to punish a whole nation through the withholding of vital aid to education and health, or indeed investments in critical areas of economy to slap crosscutting economical sanctions against a whole nation.

And the UPND, through it’s PRESIDENT Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, have said we shall not support or advocate for crosscutting economic sanctions against our own country and our own people.

The price to pay if blanket sanctions were issued would be unbearable for ordinary people while the thieving politicians themselves continue to live exuberant lifestyles both here at home and abroad.

Therefore, as part of the process of implementing UNEXPLAINED WEALTH ORDERS (UWOs) and “operation recovery” against politically exposed individuals whom Law Enforcement Agencies will have reason to believe have illegally acquired wealth, property or money, the UPND will take the lattitude and request that special dispensation be exercised in freezing the assets of CORRUPT Zambian officials and politicians, as well as instituting travel bans to countries where these blood assets are held, as well as exclusion from travellibg to cooperating countries.

The UPND will not allow state sponsored criminal actors to get away with having destroyed our country for private gain, just as the UPND will not victimise hardworking Zambian citizens, who have legitimately acquired wealth and continue to contribute immensely to the growth of our economy.

Once the music stops playing, there will be no place to hide for those who have committed grand economic crimes against Zambians.

    • Its not all about putting HH in power but just a concern about abuse of authority and public resources. All Zambian who cares would rather change govt instead of continuing with wrong people who can not be advised.

    • Come on it’s not about HH ,sometimes look at the nation not an individual. So your vote is what counts most. Please lola let’s get our pride back as zambians not as UPND or PF. Stealing has to come to a stop and corruption has to be checked in our Country. We need to develop Zambia as one Zambia one nation in development not just by saying it. No point of hating one another. United we stand divided we fall.

    • The wordsmith/author is really trying hard, but talking bollocks about the so-called Surgical Sanctions. I wish I had more time and space to drill in his surgical sanctions, threatening the narrative of lies.

      () Yes, we must fight corruption.

      Corruption as a whole is happening in Zambia from those who support (1)PF, (2)UPND, (3) MMD.. etc, still working as civil servants or senior civil servants in Zambia. And of course in government.

      So, don’t talk as if the UPND Faction is all a Clean Faction. We need to address corruption as National Problem from all people, which has become the norm or a way of life.

    • Meanwhile, the people of Zambia have “NO” problem with UPND!!

      They just DON’T TRUST HH and the gospel of .. “Only-A-Tonga-Can-Lead-Zambia.

      Lungu was the easiest opponent to beat, but HH failed to do so on two chances. Now Lungu has been growing slowly, even become harder to beat.

      HH has failed to sell alternative ideas and there is a big cloud that has overshadowed him, that he dodges to address everytime he is given an opportunity.

      To the wordsmith / writer of this article, be honest and start asking yourself difficult questions that UPND has avoided since HH took over from Mazoka [MHSRP] who left a good foundation in UPND.

  2. PF members that have not accrued wealth dubiously have nothing to fear. Let them support this approach so that we can contain corruption and recover what was stolen from all of us.

    • We support the approach, not the man HH. Trouble is that if HH was given the opportunity (God forbid), we would be worse off going by what he stands for. The man is over-zealous, vindictive, mean, of questionable belief, hungry for riches, etc (the list is endless). Can the UPND please pick a different man to lead them?

  3. Have you seen the Vimbayambaya ba Esther went to collect relatives from Chawama in tow @ the cost of over a Million U$Dollars??
    These scraps would not even be fit to be used as Van’s for carrying Chibuku to a Chawama tavern, where ba Jona used to imbibe, before he duped gullible Zambians to hand over the keys to Zambia’s treasury.
    SHAMEFUL INDEED!!

  4. Sanctions or no sanctions, was it Woodrow Wilson Center that gave HH votes that PF robbed of him and found stashed in dustbins after the 2016 general elections or it was well-meaning and sobber Zambians?

  6. Jesus was very categorical about a log in ones eye and a speck in the other. HH should read Mathews 7:3-5. First before you start looking at corrupt PF answer the question the South African Media asked you. How did you became rich? HH wants to be in State House for the same reason the PF are in State House. For him it is even worse because he needs to recover the money he used in the five losses he has suffered.

  14. Mr Anthony Bwalya – UPND Member
    In the neighborhood I grew up in, there was a bully who once upon a time beat somebody’s child. The mother lost her head and confronted him so that he could fight her instead of repeatedly beating her son. Everyone witnessing the episode knew it was a no contest – she would lose!
    The moral of the story though, the mother was simply making a point that the bully was wrong and that someone had to stand up to him to stop his thuggery even by physically engaging him.
    In your own words “We have overwhelming, institutional evidence against a good number of PF government officials who are engaged in grand theft and corruption involving public resources, manipulation of public processes for personal gain, including details of commissions individuals have been…

  15. …been receiving for committing our country to public debt we cannot repay and without due regard to process.”
    Please commission a private counsel to expedite for establishment of such cases and then like you have come out here, avail the Zambian public and courts of law the evidence. It shouldn’t be about winning, we all know they have control over all the arms of government! But we will at least have called their bluff with tangible evidence. Trust the populace to be fair judges…
    Also, try and desist playing to the gallery. Why do you take issues to the international bodies and overlook the Zambian voters? You are merely tarnishing the image of the country you are trying to preside over. That will only sow seed of doubt in your perceived cooperating partners. It is not like…

    • @Spaka, that is why I am begging the opposition to carry out independent investigations with qualified private investigators and lay bare their findings. The opposition should channel their energies and resources in establishing facts and not just jump onto the rumor mill! And they should participate rather walkaway from deliberating National Issues! Again its not about winning but standing up and providing counter proposals on the best way forward…

      I said “…opposition to carry out independent investigations with qualified private investigators and lay bare their findings…”
      Situmbeko Musokotwane recently gave an alternative 2020 budget, did he seek approval from government? The essence is to be professional and factual like Ameriicans seek clarity on a number of issues and engage Private Counsels (Robert Mueller et al)

  16. …replacing the corrupt ruling clique will wipe off corruption overnight! There will still be rotten civil servants and agents at various stages of our country’s operations.
    Then let us pray that this envisaged Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWO) and “Operation Recovery” will not be the Levy Mwanawasa TASK FORCE re-incarnate that selectively chose who to pursue! And that it will not strain further our meager resources to recover the loot at greater cost.

Sincere apologies for calling you nyama soya, but you really held the economy together Sir. Surprisingly, the ones who have failed now still want to understand again, but the real question is “to come and do what” . This is a no contest, for clarity I am PF but a realist

  20. The way to fight stealing, corruption, lying, gaysim etc. is to hold the bull by its horns. It is true that the people involved in the vices named above are actually PF, UPND, MMD, DC, etc. Holding the bull by
    it’s horns means individuals who are involved in the above vices must be mentioned and reported for prosecution. The author says and I quote: we have overwhelming evidence of intitutional stealing and corruption in government by top PF officials.
    Comments like this can not solve the issue at hand. It takes evidence to prosecute an offender. In as long as we wholesomely make allegations nothing will be harvested.

    • It is not the lack of evidence but DPP monopoly to prosecute criminal matters and inept/biased judiciary.
      As to opening their mouths, well, tell us about lack of evidence in case of 42 red painted wheelbarrows, theft of donor funds, 51 houses, inflated tenders, joy ride to LA to “inspect” 30 years old trucks at cost of 1 million USD, rugs to richness by yesterday paupers and now real estate big shots.
      Actually, you keep your f*cking mouth shut as the stench of you as corruption beneficiary is stronger that the one of pit-latrine where you use to live prior to 2011

  21. @INDEPENDENT OBSERVER and David N
    Does this writer know that HH was mentioned in the Panama papers and as such falls in the category of those who should be targeted for such sanctions?
    I am becoming a bit bored now LT of these wishy washy PR articles with every thing from which leader is more dignified because of what the eat. Are we so bored that we are desperate for any news? Is this news? What about discussing policies?
    Well obviously he Mr Jellyfish (HH) is pulling out all the stops as he is desperate for votes.

      I agree with you, LT needs to improve and make this a platform to debate real life issues and enlighten the masses of the goings on in the world.

  22. The problem with people who shun away from the National day of prayer and fasting are stubbon and this is how far they can think all the time. As Alangizi we are wondering that he has come back after the prayers, really? And instead of appreciating the First Lady for what she done, he is there critisizing the efforts being done. Does he have a company which makes vehicles so that he can donate? this man so called HH, is behaving like a rat which has seen a cat and runs away. Country men and women he ran away from prayers and after the prayers he is back on the scene and yapping nonsense. Shame and fire on him.

  23. I would support that and needs to be implemented as soon as possible let us start from the time privatization of the Zambian asserts, when we lost more of the national wealth than now and the country lost a lot of industry due to thefts by those appointed to do the task.
    The only good thing is that we still have these characters every where you go and most of them are now in politics, any un explained wealth acquirer must be brought to book and HH is on the front line he must explain how he got so much wealth without any history of any wealth in his life then we should continue to the United explained wealth got under this government.

  26. The beauty of social media is that any body can post anything no matter how badly reasoned it is or how bad the language.
    Let me say this, the criminally minded will support criminals, those with corrupt minds will find words to justify the corrupt, the moral degenerates will despise the upright, the mentally weak will gravitate towards vice and scum. Remember the saying ‘birds of a feather……’
    For me to support people who over a period of 8 years have failed and have clearly shown us that they are corrupt, uncaring, criminals, clueless about governance matters and just empty tins, casts a damming realization about the condition of our society.

  28. We have been wisely advising the people in opposition to start thinking outside the box other than wasting energy on the party(UPND) with a leader with no Christian values. As Alangizi Ba Chitukuko we have discovered that HH is not respecting the leadership in power, and pretending as if he is in power why? One thing we should understand is that climate change is not a man made thing but it is a natural thing which should not be politicised.
