Mr Lusambo, Mr Kungo, Mr Ngulube at the Kabushi rally on Saturday

Ruling Patriotic Front Member of Parliament for Kabushi Bowman Lusambo has charged that things are not well for the party on the Copperbelt province.

Mr Lusambo has since pleaded with party Secretary General Davies Mwila to step in and provide answers to the dwindling fortunes of the party in the province.

Mr Lusambo who is also Lusaka Province Minister was speaking on Friday evening in Kitwe during the party’s Mpongwe District Executive Committee fundraising dinner at Moba Hotel.

“Ine, I was wearing overalls but because of EL’s love, he has upgraded me and I am now wearing these jackets you are seeing. Ba S.G, let’s not just make pledges, we need to know how the party is sitting on the Copperbelt, if we just make pledges, then there is nothing we are doing,” Mr Lusambo warned.

“We need to know how the party is sitting even as we make pledges in order to know that the party is going well. As Kabushi MP, I can tell you that things are not Ok on the Copperbelt. You need to look at this issue as the CEO of the party and then find the answers and provide the answers if we are to move forward.”

Meanwhile, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila said ruling party is focusing its energies on growing membership through mobilisation activities and not holding of the convention because there is already a preferred candidate.

Mr Mwila also stated that Party has indicated that only the Central Committee has the power to decide whether or not to have a convention.

He said all those questioning whether the party will go to the convention or not must wait for the central committee to decide on the matter.

He has further stated that he is aware of some people with ill intentions who have been making advances to put the name of the party into disrepute by making calls for a convention.

“Our focus as a party is to ensure that we maintain the momentum ahead of 2021 general elections, we will not be diverted but also the good part is we keep delivering to the people, we have done roads all these projects will speak for us,” Mr. Mwila said.

He said the ruling party is focusing its energies on growing membership through mobilisation activities and not holding of the convention because there is already a preferred candidate.

The party’s Secretary General later announced that a total of over K300, 000 had been raised during the fundraising dinner to go towards various party activities in Mpongwe District.

  1. There’s no part of Zambia where the authority of the PF government is not recognized. All his appointees from DCs, provincial ministers, the security services and permanent secretaries are in place and loyal to him. There’s no need to worry about wht ordinary people think of the PF govt because no one owns the people. People’s views be they favourable or unfavourable aren’t permanent.

    • Wow Bowman Lusambo has said something sensible! Probably because he see an opportunity to dethrone Mwila. Or perhaps he knows he will feel the pinch when they are booted out of power. Mukose ba pompwe

    • Anyway, I don’t believe that Zambians are about to learn their lessons. Cheap populists are still seen as serious contenders. That’s not the behaviour of people who hv learned their political lessons.

    • Nemeine and Sharon can you stop upsetting people and making our party unpopular through your low thinking and opinions that dont upgrade the PF standards. This type of thinking is what is killing our party and you two cant even stick to the subject. You are misleading the party, things are not good on the ground and as PF looking at copperbelt being our stronghold, we need to pull up our socks before it’s too late. That UPND rally is a wake up call and we must stop living a lie. This is what happened to MMD, ministers kept lying to RB that it was going be a white wash until the good big man cried alone on the actual day of results and they jumped to PF . So party loving members let’s say the truth and work on the weakness.

    • This why our country has regressed while other African are making good progress. People in overalls can certainly make a contribution towards the development of the country but they cannot form effectively governance. PF is a party where illiterates outnumber the educated. That is the reason why they have driven this country to the brink of totall collapse. It’s time for us to give some real economists a chance and see what they can offer, not just voting on tribal lines. He is Helecteble, Sharon!

    • Bembaman: Whatever happened to the Zambian identity? Is the Zambian identity disliked because it makes all of us the same? I never answer to the troll called Sharon. What I know about political popularity and unpopularity is that neither situation is permanent. Just ask MMD.

  5. “……the good part is we keep delivering to the people, we have done roads all these projects will speak for us,” said mwila

    That is the folly of lungu and PF , they think because they have built roads from borrowed money, which even a grade 7 can do, people owe them the votes ?????

    They are finding out that people can not eat roads…..people want jobs to feed their families.

    • You cannot eat roads but we need them for business. Transport goods and services. The road network in the late 1980s was damaged beyond measure. Those who were old enough know how long it took to travel from Lusaka to Kabwe to Mongu, Livingstone etc. Would you ràther have food without roads? The fact is that no matter how poor one is, they will always find something to eat. That is how people discovered the grass called Maize and Zambians start to behave like made was always.

      No one doughtsvthe need for roads , but how can you borrow your self to the bone for roads while there are no jobs ??? Then go back begging to the IMF ????

      Check this out……A farmer has a leaking roof with rains destroying his equipment , he borrows money to ……

      A) use all the money to plant long term
      crops hoping to reap later to repair the
      roof

      B) Use the money first to repair the roof
      then with what’s left, plant long term
      crops

  7. There are some people who want to bring the name of the party into disrepute by calling for a convention.
    Huh?
    Since when are intra party elections viewed in that way?
    I know for a fact that Lungu has something to fear from KBF if they go for a convention and the vote is secret ballot instead of raising of hands.
    Alas, the convention may not happen because of bootlicking in the central committee.

  8. There is more enemy within PF that the enemy outside. Chiteme saw it first hand. Mushimba is being fought by Mr Wora. Chungu is up in arms with Luanshya D/mayor Mr Mulenga. My my question is, how can a house divided against itself stand the outside storm.

    I dont know what PF has seen in Mwila. For me, this man is very dull.

  9. In normal countries, a convention is called for by the incumbent in the case of division, so as to cement his leadership credentials and unify the party

    But these corrupt thieving thugs of PF who accuse UPND of being a dictator party are using fear and threats to suppress any ambitions of leadership ????

  13. What did you expect huh? People to be ok with the misery you’ve put them through? Aikona man, The leadership of the PF is well portrayed in the cartoon animal farm, few enjoy at the expense of many. From the unprecedented levels of borrowing people were expecting things to stabilize in the economy. Ever since the last elections PF has been in plain sight thieving. Illegal stay of ministers so they can use government resources to campaign while there were no drugs in the hospitals. Fire wheelbarrows and the increment of their own salaries at the expense of many who lost jobs in the mines and other businesses closing down. Pensioners have been denied their own money and many are owed salary arrears whilst they travel in expensive jets.

  15. Honorable,S.G. MCC is very small than pf, MCC is full of bootliking, MCC has made mistakes in the past which costed PF,E.g where independent MPs are found, it’s the mistake of MCC, MCC as at now is divided full of appointees than elected,even yourself as SG, you need to go through elections to see or test your leadership as SG, in short don’t be so blinded that the decision is for MCC to go for a convention, the PF masses have called for a convention jus subscribe to it and set the date as early as first quarter of 20,20 so that the dust can settle down. Another thing honorable S,G, you part should address is 1, loadshedding,2 stop giving contracts to PF carders alone both from govt contacts and private.distibute works nationally whether it’s 20% or not. You can have alot of money as…

    Yes Hon SG Davis Mwila, tell the people, they seem to have forgotten about the roads that we have done, preferring to complain about useless things like cost of living including mealiemeal, load shedding, no jobs, and no money in their pockets. They even forgot that they went to the two opposition rallies in Kitwe in large numbers using our roads.

    • In normal parties where there are calls for a convention from within the party, like in pf …..

      In UPND , no one is calling for a convention , it is PF who seem afraid of facing HH and are the ones calling for a UPND convention….

      while UPND are not calling for a PF convention, it is some PF members who feel they can challenge lungu….and lungu is afraid of proving his popularity.

  28. No need to call Sharon names, she’s entitled to free speech and opinion, a cadre opinion you can do nothing about. But if I were Sharon, I would look at these facts before expressing an unintelligible opinion: The 2011 presidential elections ushered in Michael Sata as President, after ten years in opposition and losing elections in 2006 and 2008. After Sata died in 2014, presidential elections took place in 2015 where Edgar Lungu beat HH by just 27,757 votes, a very narrow margin. In 2016, Edgar Lungu again beat HH by 100,530 votes. Michael Sata was in opposition for ten years, that did not make him unelectable. It’s called God’s time and plan. If HH is destined to lead this country, it will only be on God’s time and plan. If not, so be it. My opinion exactly.
