PF disappointment with the Corona virus Politics being practiced by HH and Kambwili by alarming the nation

Headlines PF disappointment with the Corona virus Politics being practiced by...

Patriotic Front member of the central committee Kebby Mbewe has expressed disappointment with the politics which UPND and NDC leaders Hakainde Hichilema and Dr Chishimba Kambwili are attaching to the issue of the Coronavirus.

Mr Mbewe said that Mr. Hichilema is alarming the nation by issuing statements that are misleading instead of uniting the nation towards the fight against the Coronavirus.

“When you go to Europe and other parts of the world, all leaders have put politics aside and this is what we expect from mature politicians and not politicking on the matter” Mr Mbewe said.

Mr Mbewe has since asked Mr Hichilema to practice responsible politics that will help to contribute to the successful fighting of the epidemic further asking him not to seek political mileage from the situation.

“How many times are you as a leader going to mislead the people on serious matters that concern the majority of Zambians.When the country is going through challenges such as this which require undivided attention, you choose to instead play politics” he said.

Mr Mbewe has also advised NDC leader Dr Chishimba Kambwili not to underplay government’s efforts to raise awareness on the economic impacts of the Coronavirus.

Mr Mbewe says the efforts that the government has put in place should be supported by all Zambians especially political leaders who should compliment efforts to raise awareness and help people to understand to what extent the Coronavirus will affect the country’s socioeconomic sector.

“You have the potential to help this country but do it in a way that Zambians are going to appreciate” he advised the duo.

And Mr Mbewe says the President has put a lot of effort in addressing the epidemic as evidenced by various meetings he has chaired , the inter-ministerial committee he has set up, the contingency fund he has set aside among other notable efforts.

He was reacting to those calling for the President to voice out on the Coronavirus saying the president is currently speaking through the various people he has tasked to ensure the matter receives the much-needed attention.

On Monday, UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema says Zambia’s Health Care System has no capacity to deal with full-scale COVID-19.

Mr Hichilema says the measures announced by the Ministry of Health to combat COVID-19 fall short of the scale of the problem at hand.

Speaking at a media briefing today, Mr Hichilema cited Limited diagnostic facilities, inadequate medical personnel, limited treatment options and limited protective gear as some of the inadequacies that affect Zambia’s preparedness to deal with the disease.

He said in order to deal with the situation and protect the people; Zambia needs a complete lockdown for two weeks, enhance testing for COVID -19 in all ten provinces, mobilize retired medical personnel to help and procure enough medical equipment for medical personnel.

Even in Coronavirus epicenters like NY and LA you dont see politicians doing press conference wearing masks…but in Zambia you see a dull and childish politician HH trying to use it for political gain…even organizing a press briefing as if he is anywhere near the corridors of power….very useless chap…i think its now written in the skys that HH will ritire next elections whilst in opposition

  3. And Mr HH sir if you think Coronavirus is a joke..they’ve set up temporary mortuarys/morgue outside New York hospitals….so stop fooling around covering your dirty mouth with a mask that is supposed to be useful somewhere in the health institutions…and it looks like HH is praying hard for Coronavirus to hit Zambia big time….

  7. These dunderheads always blaming HH, just chew your Chocolates quietly instead of opening your filthy mouths anyway. Your ka president is quarantined? On gassing he was quarantined and during this corona virus time is quarantined together with his girlfriend Inonge Wina. Let him him come out and address the nation. We have Cyril Ramaphosa is South Africa, Mr Masisi of BW assuring their nationnals. What’s difficult for Lungu? You PF Government your time has elapsed. Only the shell of the government remains.

  8. You have to Alarm everyone this virus is here and this virus will kill…… how can PF even say or think that everything is normal that when the whole world is collapsing everywhere. We really have clowns in PF

  9. Actions are better than words. What do you want you people? You just want the voice of President Lungu. Government through the able leadership of the Republican President is doing everything possible to safeguard the people of Zambia from the Corona virus. Lungu is rather action oriented than just talking nonsense like what the opposition is doing. Mulekeni umwine Lungu abombe inchito yakwe.

  10. In times of Turbulence, the Captain/Pilot/Coach assures the Passengers/soccer fans. The Cabin Crew/security only pass round to make sure your seat belt is fastened and etc. HH has done the needful because our Captain has been absent or quiet since the time of Gassing, mob justices, mealie meal shortages and now Covid-19. Has he turned a blind eye on us?

  11. HH and CK are both suffering from comorbidity, this is a disease or condition present in the person at the same time.This refers to an overlap of different conditions.This may be physical or mental. so you can now answer for yourself who these two guys are HH and CK.

  12. Nanga aPresident ofinsanji? Why is the President so relaxed on this issue. PF is hiding confirmed cases of Coronavirus numbers in Zambia. For a long time they allowed Emirates, ET, SAA to be bringing people from high risk countries starting with China. We probably have a huge population exposed to this virus. Unfortunately poor and vulnerable people will die because our government is failing to leader and protect them.

  13. Embarrassing to see him wearing a mask when there’s no direct threat of Covid-19 within 2 meters vicinity. We call it drama.

    As long as his hands are clean and he’s not touching his face all the time, he should’nt have anything to worry about. If he has to wear a mask, then at least let it be locally made, with Zambian material and by Zambian labourers.

  14. Look at the mask he is mockingly wearing. Extremely insensitive creature.
    SARS-CoV-2 or Coronavirus Disease 2019 short code Covid-19 is no cousin to some nigga. It is a serious health concern that needs to be taken seriously.
    It is a social solitary enforcing pathogen.
    The deads wanna joke with anything and everything.
    All calls from our president and health practitioners are not trivial as it relates to this disease.
    H² is u5.

    Thinking levels are very low
    Look they are always looking for his excellence the president in what ever comes for his word and surprising
    Enough he doesn’t take them seriously because he knows how low they are.
    While they claim and l mean some, that they have money what have they done to help the situation? Nothing
    Look we have people like Dagote, sadio Mane and Christiano Ronaldo helping their countries .
    Do you help the answer is NO while you keep telling the world that you are not looking for plot1 because of money because you already have

  17. He wore it for a few seconds for illustration and then took it off. Don’t divert from the issue of some so-called leaders who have
    gone into hiding at critical times. You should criticise with a basis and the truth, not from mere malice. It is a fact that on several
    occasions when he is expected to do otherwise, ECL has gone incognito. But if HH or CK say the earth is an oblate spheroid, and
    not flat, you will still dispute.

  18. PF surrogates’ comments manifest how narrow-minded they are, even on serious matters. This goes to show their high level of mediocrity. It is so pathetic. It also goes to their ignorance and lack of understanding of public issues.

  19. FUC.KING SHI.T IDI.OTS
    Why are you blaming HH when he was just demonstrating the use of masks. You ar.se holes have small brains. Immediately you read the name Mbewe you realise what comes of his mouth is wako ni wako

  20. If anything, it’s PF surrogates and job seekers like Kebby Mbewe who are politicizing things.
    This country should have been locked down before us recording the first case! Chitalu Chilufya does not have executive powers to shut down the country even if he has been in the forefront addressing the nation on this matter. Chilufya and Dora Siliya aggravated matters when they argued that shutting down the country would be Xenophobic. Really? Even from the Spanish Flu of 1918, countries that shut down early recorded fewer cases than those who shut down late like Zambia. So far, 11 out of 12 cases are imported cases and one received from one of the 11. If ECL did what Mnangagwa of Zim did by declaring an Emergency and shutting down the country, we should still be Zero. Even when WHO warned us…

  21. Even when WHO warned us from January that Zambia is on High Risk alert, we took no action. When citizens advise, you cry blue murder? Just watch how this whole thing unfolds. You will see how slow we have been because of “Tuchawa!”
    Cyril Ramaposa is a good example of leading from the front. He initiated the call to opposition leaders to put heads together and he got brilliant input from them. That’s how you do it. PF does not have the Monopoly of wisdom on these matters! Learn to listen to Advice even when it’s from uncomfortable sources. Levy Mwanawasa was very good at listening to opposition leaders. That is why he excelled in a number of areas. He also did badly with KCM because he did not consult widely. So Mr Kebby Mbewe, don’t mislead PF leaders. All opposition leaders are…

  22. All opposition leaders are Zambians and therefore important stakeholders in national affairs! Embrace their wise counsel as opposed to demonizing them. ECL has seriously decampaigned himself by his consistent habit of keeping quiet in crisis times! That is a terrible “I don’t care” attitude!

  23. HH should stop wearing that mask please doctors in upnd advice your political party president the effect of wearing mask in that way.

  24. Kebby Mbewe, what you have said points direct on you and all pf and not on Hichilema and UPND. We are in a Crisis but where is lungu, nowhere to be seen. Lungu is just serious during by – Elections and changing the Constitution. God of Jacob, Abraham, Isaac, Hichilema and Serious UPND Members Answer Our Prayer of Sorting Out these Murderers and Thieves, pf, Soon.

  25. We just need participation of all. Even countries with good health care, good monies such as Italy have felt the impact of the virus. We are human and not a God. Some feel they are more intelligent and can fix even the disease which has challenged medical experts world over. Even if you can set aside trillion of funds, the reality underground is different. Zambian politics is more about doing better than the other or what you can fix, but it is dangerous to claim to know or having a solution to everything. With such an intelligence, what will others do? Does somebody listen to advice from others or will he be listening with such level of intelligence? This is superhuman level really. There are higher possibilities that somebody may continue blaming others, even when they no longer in…
