Zambia’s Socialist Party  Presidential candidate for 2021 Fred M’membe has said that he has difficulties seeing how the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) will be re-elected in the 2021 general elections.

Writing on the party’s social media platform about what he called the repeated question of the support he offered to the Patriotic Front in 2011, which espouses and promotes capitalism, the Socialist presidential candidate said that, at the time, PF was the only party that had an anti-capitalist position in its constitution and had committed itself to fight against capitalism and to support the working class.

Dr. M’membe, however, said that the ruling party is no longer committed to the calls of the working class and that the people running PF are not decent, honest and humble people committed to solidarity.

 

Below is the full post

In my recent interaction with the media, this question came up again. I need to clear this issue.

Comrades, am not in the PF to speak for the PF. I am running a Socialist Party. When you look at the constitutions of the parties that existed at that time, there was only one party that had an anti-capitalist position in its constitution. The PF committed itself to fight against capitalism and to support the working class. I have been a socialist from the age of 19 to this day and that (PF position) appeared attractive for me.

But are they socialists? Are they committed to the calls of the working class? Are they decent people, are they honest people who are committed to equity, who are committed to humility, who are committed to solidarity? My answer is NO.

If they were socialists we would have not started the socialist party to defend the calls of the working class, to defend the calls of the poor, to defend the calls of the poor peasants.

I don’t know how Zambians will decide. It is their decision to elect or not to elect the PF, that I can’t predict, but what am sure about is that they will be no money or more in the pockets, that will not be achieved. That I can guarantee you, they will not be able to put more money in your pockets before the August 2021 elections, they will not be able to put money in your pockets.

Whether you elect them or not, having failed to put more money in your pockets after promising to do so and have driven you into deeper poverty, that is your choice but we are dealing with rational human beings here. And if this rationality of human beings is something to go by, I have difficulties seeing how the PF will be re-elected again

  1. The PF are neither socialists nor capitalists.

    They are just plain thieves.

    They have proved they have nothing to offer this country, but are only interested in taking from this country for their own benefit. They will only ever look out for number one.

    • Funny you should say they are about taking everything. Are they carrying Matero, Chilenje, Chipata Level One hospitals with them when they leave??

    • It is difficult seeing…
      It is difficult seeing how M’membe can become an effective opposition leader.
      It is also difficult seeing how people in Zambia would vote for any opposition seeing that PF is doing the right things and doing things right.

    • Why are you focusing on the PF’s strategies or lack thereof? Tell the voter about your own strategies. How will you put money in their pockets?

    • You must be some butt hole. Has the party in power ever stolen your asss’s cash. You have nothing to say and thats why your cultist is busy hallucinating

  2. I also have difficulties in seeing how anyone can go back in history and think backwards with socialist state. In this era bwana you are gone. In all fairness Membe for president – never!
    I would rather go back to mmd or unip mafi if am forced but tonga bull can control it – believe me. Manje baPf ukawalala wachilamo! Lets see what happens with the bulls. Its not a gamble but plain truth.
    For me Membe is a real disaster!!!

  3. Any one is better than PF.

    Governance can not get any worse.

    Seeing the $17 billion owed, those infrastructure are not free……

    • PF now its time pack and go into history as the worst ever party to have been in power. no retiree will vote for you come 2021. look at issues with no answers: Kaizer, findlay, 48 hses, forest 27,bill 10, load shedding, mariuana, ndola-lsk duo carriage way, fire tenders, dollar at K15.00,mukula cartel, etc. kuyafye twanaka nenu. impeach him now.

    • 3.1 Ken

      Another attribute of PF rats , on top of stealing for fun, is not understanding what comments imply…….

      “..Seeing the $17 billion owed, those infrastructure are not free……

      Meaning , you rats are busy showing off infrastructure, but given $17 billion you have spent , even a grade 7 can build that, and provide jobs which you have failed to do….so that infrastructure you are showing about ain’t free out of PF efforts

      Comprande ?????

  4. Why should that be your difficulty? Trouble? Last time I checked you were opposition leader! You can’t see how we can win because ours is not your manifesto

  5. Though PF is a total disaster to Zambia, Fred Mmembe is certainly NOT Presidential material. Infact he’s not even a politician

  6. The PF are a kleptocracy and unfortunately The Post Newspaper benefited so much from the PF Mafia, now you have discovered that friends founded on a partnership to do wrong are never true. You’re right about PF prospects for re-election, however none of the current crop of politicians gives hope to Zambians, not even yourself! Ba matole imwe

  7. Any other Political Party is better going for than the PF. PF is an irresponsible party thats why they keep blaming UPND and the act of nature for their own failures all the time as if they were co-governing. it remains our hope that one day African countries would be self sustaining and reliant rather than depend on borrowing and Aid.

  8. Guess you are not as intelligent or discerning as you portrayed yourself to be for not seeing through the PF project being a disaster.

    Which leads me to believe you only had an ulterior motive for supporting PF.

  9. PF AND CHAKOLWA CORRUPT LUNGU ARE HARM TO ZAMBIA LIKE CHOLERA,MEMBE IS RIGHT.I WILL ESCORT THEM TO JAIL AS THEY LOSE IN 2021.

    • Sonta donation yobe…You frustrated idi.ot . What makes you think homo and gay supporters will form government in 2021. Work hard,you lazy fo.ol who loves handouts. Lets wait for 2021

  10. MR. MMEMBE IS GOING BACK 40 YEARS! NOBODY IS INTERESTED IN SOCIALISM ANY MORE ANY WHERE IN THE WORLD! MAY BE HES NOT AWARE THAT THE BERLIN WALL WAS BROKEN 30 YEARS AGO AND THAT MARKED THE END OF THE UNPRACTICAL SOCIALISM! SO WHY IS HE WASTING HIS TIME? I CAN LEND HIM A COPY OF THE FAMOUS AND PRACTICALLY TRUE “ANIMAL FARM” WHICH OUTLINED EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS UNDER SOCIALISM, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS! SO WITH HIS SOCIALISM, LET HIM FORGET ABOUT WINNING ELECTIONS IN ZAMBIA, HENCE GIVING MORE CHANCES TO PF RETAINING POWER!

  11. If the situation does not improve , people seeing all this improvement in infrastructure also expect an improvement in living standards , I see riots and PF cancelling elections. I see PF deliberately formenting violence when it becomes clear there is no winning

  12. What is it with this obsession of ” humble” leaders??
    This is alot of nonsense. Ati humble president ECL??
    The so called humbleness doesn’t drive good governance or economical advancement.
    We just want leaders who are selfless & strive to put the citizens interests ahead of theirs.

  13. Those still in support (i used to be) of PF, what do you have to tell us about the kwacha? very soon fuel will go up. how about more money in our pockets?
