Kalumbila UPND Members of Parliament, Teddy Kasonso says the Patriotic Front does not have numbers to pass Constitution Bill number 10 even if two UPND members do not vote.

Speaking during Provincial Executive Committee meeting at which he cleared the allegations suggesting that he had been bought by President Edgar Lungu, Mr Kasonso said president Lungu did not have money to buy him.

In his passionate submission, Mr Kasonso charged that he would only work with Mr Lungu on principles and not that he would be bought by him.

He boldly pledged his continued support to the UPND and demanded that members needed to verify information before making wild allegations.

“The rules of the Select Committee in Parliament are such that, one cannot vote against the resolution of the Committee. The walk out by my fellow UPND MPs was not done at the point of voting for people to accuse me of working with PF.

Bill number 10 could have been history by now had we debated the bill because PF was five (5) MPs short to pass Bill number 10 when we (UPND) walked out of Parliament.

I am not a senseless distractor to go against the common good of the party and the desire of majority people,” said Mr Kasonso.

And Local Government Deputy Chairperson, Brian Ndumba thanked the Kalumbila lawmaker for showing leadership at a critical stage of Zambian politics.

Mr Kasonso was further encouraged to support the intra-party elections that shall soon run in his constituency as per scheduled time table.

  2. Speak for UPND opinion.
    If you are saying that PF had short of 5 (actual number is 2 not 5) don’t you think that it is good as saying that the bill has already passed?
    Politicians are crooks,you cannot be trusted especially in opposition and independent.If sure opposition political parties believe that Bill 10 is bad to for the country let it pass so that you capitalize on it during campaigns next year.

  5. Minister Chilufya, DMMU coordinator Kabwe fight over Covid donations
    A feud over Covid-19 financial donations between Disaster Management Coordinator Chanda Kabwe and Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya is getting personal and nasty.
    The RELIABLE SOURCE understands that minister Chilufya phoned Chanda Kabwe on Friday last week to tell him that the Covid-19 pandemic has nothing to do with disaster management for him (Kabwe) to be going round Asian owned business houses seeking financial donation.
    A source familiar with the bitter phone exchange said Covid-19 was a health emergency and had nothing to do with floods which the DMMU is better placed to deal with.
    When Chanda Kabwe asked Chilufya what he understood by the term multi-sectoral approach to the Covid-19 fight, Chitalu went…

  6. Kasonso has said: “… only work with Mr Lungu on principle…” so if the debate comes up and he is in favour of what’s been discussed, he will vote for it. Just like the 2016 Referendum on the Bill of Rights, upnd wants to deceive people and deter progress. What is wrong with Bill 10??

  9. Pf has been winning any contest with the upnd since 2006 general elections. Bill 10 has passed already, a challenge upnd members to do the same, if bill 10 flops i will commit succide by jumping off the last floor of findeco house.

  10. How can party with a manifesto written on an A4 paper rule a country? Surely this is not running a bar!

  11. Bill 10 is morality test for all MP’S regardless of which party they are from. Either way if it goes through or doesn’t go through there still will be consequences.

  12. UPND kuwayawafye. They behave like they eat donkey and kolokombwa meat for dinner everyday. Most of them dont even know the contents of Bill 10. Can they chill until COVID-19 is over!!!!

  13. LT please be serious, how can an MP file in nomination papers for a by-election? The picture you have used is an old one and you are supposed to indicate that. This is why all in the picture are not wearing masks.

  14. Neither do they have the capacity to take care of its own workers (Council Workers). These PF people are Callous, they don’t care of the plight the council workers are going through. They are enjoying creating By-Elections, even after knowing that elections are just around the corner next year. Time is ticking,

  15. @Madilu: points 2,3,7 and 9. Elaborate how you will end loadshedding and how you will magically bring corruption to 0%, sir???? Please enlighten us on the other points!!!

  16. Useless mp teddy kasoso using both hands to eat, Be careful with him,last time he was stopping Ambrose lifuna to go out of parliament when that useless Bill 10 was being debated in the house.
