UPND’s Scheme Tribal, Vengeful, Divisive & Anarchist

Share

By Sunday Chilufya Chanda

We find the scheme by the UPND to dethrone the Mwine Lubemba Chitimukulu Henry Kanyanta Sosala, in the unlikely event of forming Government, extremely reprehensible. This evil scheme by the UPND is not only very tribal and divisive, but it is a censurable scheme that will backfire terribly on Mr. Hichilema and his Party. It seems Mr. Hichilema and his Party have not embraced in the old wisdom that,

“you do not spit into the wind because it will come back in your face”.

His Royal Highness Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, Mwine Lubemba is a crusader and messenger of the liberating power of truth. And, “you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”!

Is not Mr. Hichilema interested in the liberating power of truth, no matter who says it?

Is Mr. Hichilema so bound and driven by tribalism and vengeance that, he is so irked and troubled by the wisdom, truth and principles of His Royal Highness Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, Mwine Lubemba? And is it moral for Mr. Hichilema’s UPND to be actively planning ill against the Mwine Lubemba?

Driven by his tribal and divisive instincts, Mr. Hichilema has found reason and peace in allowing his Spokespersons in the Alliance, to insult and demean the Mwine Lubemba. This scheme is not imaginary. This scheme is real and in active sponsored operation, which is the only reason Mr. Hichilema has not seen any value in apologising to the Mwine Lubemba for the insults he has received from Mr. Hichilema’s alliance.

This anarchist and divisive scheme is not only targeted at the Mwine Lubemba, but at the Bemba speaking people as a whole, because; one cannot respect a people whose “King” he/she derides or insults.

Further, the above-mentioned scheme is not only targeted at the Bemba speaking people everywhere, but it is also targeted at the paramount Chiefs Litunga of Barotseland, Gawa Undi of the Chewa people, Chitimukulu of the Bemba, and Nkosi Ya Makosi Mpezeni of the Ngoni speaking people.

We can say to the UPND that they are now playing with fire. We want to advise Mr. Hichilema and his UPND to immediately stop spitting in the wind, because that will come back to hit them in their faces.

Driven by vengeance and division, Mr. Hichilema and UPND aspire for the highest office in the land so that they can unleash their vengeance and division.

True to his nature, for example, instead of him preaching nation building and unity, Mr. Hakainde Hichilema this week issued a veiled threat to dismiss all civil servants and diplomats he labelled as Patriotic Front supporters. This is coming from the mouth of someone who lies about creating jobs, when his agenda is to make hundreds of our brothers and sisters jobless based on tribe, region and his suspections about their political persuasion.

How does Mr. Hichilema create jobs by destroying jobs and livelihoods of civil servants only because of his suspicions or because of the civil servants’ tribe or region? Infact, Mr. Hichilema’s job creation strategy is a misnomer given his crusade to fire civil servants based only on his suspicions, flimsy reasons, and tribalism.

Given his apparent lack of understanding of governance, and given his apparent innate disrespect for institutions; Mr. Hichilema needs to be reminded that the country has a professional Civil Service Commission with specific rules and guidelines. If Mr. Hichilema has any solid evidence of any _”Patriotic Front”_ civil servant, let him bring such evidence to the Commission and the nation.

Only there is no such hard evidence, only more falsehoods, divisiveness and anarchism from Mr. Hichilema and his UPND.

The threat against civil servants is an empty, veiled threat because based on our information, the UPND is all targeting civil servants from both PF strongholds, including some from UPND strongholds. According to the UPND, originating from a region that is not their stronghold and you are a civil servant, to them that’s an admission of guilt of supporting the Patriotic Front. To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King Jr:

“We all want a Zambia where each one of us, including civil servants, are judged by the content of our character, not by our tribe or region!”

Therefore, the UPND’s vengeful vendetta targeted at civil servants coming from Western, Luapula, Muchinga, Northern, Eastern, Copperbelt, North-Western and those Southerners who are deemed not to support UPND — should be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians.

We appeal to all Zambians of good conscience to condemn Mr. Hichilema’s anarchist tribal, regional “cleansing” and witchhunt agenda of Zambia’s civil service.

Lastly, but certainly not the least, we want to appeal to our brother the NDC leader Hon Chishimba Kambwili if his conscience is clear that he is in partnership and colluding with those people insulting his Paramount Chief Mwine Lubemba. To the NDC leader, we ask; do you find being a party to an alliance insulting your own Paramount Chief Mwine Lubemba, a honourable and moral thing to do?

  1. Finally Sunday Chanda has found a ‘bone’ to chew on. I was wondering were he was when PF cadres were battering our police. Almost thought he was also on the run.

  2. Is it not HH who on the 11 of June in 2014, who defended the Chitimukulu by cautioning and advising Michael Sata for the harassment. MCS and his minions which include Nkandu Luo called this same Chitimukulu ‘FAKE’.
    Were was Sunday Chanda then?

  3. What were the insults ba Sunday? Umfumu ulwisa palwalala buintuka ubwina. Meaning, a chief who plays to gallery. Exposes him/her self to ridicule. Therefore, ubufumu bwichindeke ubwine ( self respect). Then the subjects will reciprocate. Not what I see.

  5. Hmmm this article seems to me like a desperate attempt by a group that is about to lose power to influence we bembas to support pf. And sosala himself was essentially goading bemba people to prevent his dethronement by supporting pf.
    Look here, pf and sosala, pf are a corrupt, incompetent collection of individuals whose primary aim is to enrich themselve regardless of the suffering of the rest of the populace.
    And mr. sosala is the one who in his writings has emcouraged people to be loyal to chiefs more than patriotic to the nation. Isnt that the person who i divisive and tribalistic. I am bemba, with royal blood, but I can never support the opinions of mr. sosala, just because I am bemba. The man is a disgrace!

  6. As for sunday chanda, he is just seeking some relevance because he can see very clearly how irrelevant he is. But he has to try and justify the money he is making for doing nothing. All the board positions he is unqulfied for and yet has been appointed, he has to do something, no matter how silly, to convince his appointing authority not to remove him. So he writes such silly, petty articles, fabricated out of thin air!

  7. Chitimukulu is also materialistically driven that is why he deliberately minimized the PF failure not to recognize him as a party under Sata (who knew mwine lubemba was not a factor in election outcome among bembas) Lungu was home affairs Minister and ensured he did not occupy the palace. It is just that Lungu out of desperation for Northern votes reversed this …and he saw the weakness in Chiti just as the whites did of providing ‘things’ to his fore bearers something he indirectly acknowledges in his article.

  8. This blatant tribal diatribe by Sunday is extremely nauseating and worrying. Desperation to disparage HH at all costs even if it leads to tribal violence is irresponsibility of the highest order. Surely a sane and moral person shouldn’t go to this extent! These people have made a living out of falsely labeling others tribal. Now they have reached a point where they can’t or won’t hide their own tribalism. With regard to Mwine Lubemba, surely are there no wise heads around to advise him that getting into cahoots with such characters severely subtracts from the respect he should command?

  10. Sunday I look forward to your enlightening articles full of wisdom and truth. I agree. You would think the upnd would consume themselves with trying to dethrone their semi god life ruler HH rather than tampering with a rightful traditional ruler. As long as hh is leader or for that matter anyone from south, they will never rule. I win elections and know this

  11. Sunday Chanda is a habitual liar bent on spreading false propaganda about HH with no evidence. Sunday’s obsession with HH has reached alarming levels. He cannot discuss anything without involving HH and UPND. For a change Sunday Chanda should talk about the devastating effects of Covid-19 and how this disease has led to the Adjournment of Parliament Sine Die. Sunday Chanda should talk about the Covid-19 Crisis and how it has taken the life of one MP. These are the matters that are current. We are tired of “HH this” and “HH that”. Sunday Chanda should leave HH alone and mourn the death of our beloved Bill 10. May its Soul Rest in Peace.

  12. Sunday Chanda, Kaizer Zulu, Bowman Lusambo, GBM, Edgar Chagwa Lungu and until recently Kampyongo (although he is looking and sounding very President of late) are the people who de-campaign the party all the time by their actions and in actions in the case of ECL. These people are very annoying and even fellow Ministers complain about them.

  13. The Late Michael Chilufya Sata was right on Sosala Kanyanta. He is not Paramount Chief Material. He has a TONGUE problem. Unfortunately, GBM has drawn him in the mud in which he is willingly wallowing! It’s like he now wants GBM’s perceived enemies to be his enemies and vice versa. A person can be naturally arrogant, argumentative and talkative but when they ascend to the throne, self-restraint must kick in. Most great chiefs and leaders speak rarely! KK should have abolished chiefdoms the way Nyerere did in Tanzania. Chiefdoms are keeping us in the tribal past!

    25 Feb 2020
    Governance, Elections, Advocacy, and Research Services GEARS Initiative has opposed the proposed formation of a Paramount Chiefs Council.
    A statement believed to have been issued by Paramount Chief Chitimukulu has circulated on various media platforms in which he is proposing the formation of their council which will include the Litunga, Chief Chitimukulu, Gawa Undi and Chief Mpezeni to be enacted by parliament and its role to include advising the president on various matters.

    I SUSPECT THE NON SUPPORT FOR HIS PROPOSAL FOR A COUNCIL OF PARAMOUNT CHIEFS IS THE REASON FOR HIS PARANOIA , IN THE FIRST PLACE WHEN THIS COUNCIL IS SET UP WHO WILL BE THE HEAD PARAMOUNT CHIEF? IT SEEMS SOME PEOPLE PEOPLE WANT KINGSHIP OVER PEOPLE THEY HAVE NO JURISDICTION OVER.

  17. if you read his article about kalulu, he was claiming every zambian who speaks bemba as his subject, i speak bemba fluently but an soli from lusaka, so how does he claim me has his subject?

  18. Chitimukulu thinks is a chief for all Zambians and he is just lost as traditional leader.

    He should concentrate on witchcraft in his kingdom

    PF must go!

  20. YOU,TWO BABOONS KZ AND RED LIP WHERE WERE U WHEN HH WAS ALWAYS ON THE SIDE OF CHIEF CHITI MUKULU WHEN SATA SIDELINED HIM AND YOUR SO CALL ECL WAS MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS. THEY SENT POLICE TO BLOCK HIM FROM STAYING AT THE PALACE AND TODAY U ARE INSULTING THE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN WITH THE CHIEF IN PAIN.U ARE BOTH CANTS

  21. Sunday Chanda I tried to count how many times you used the word “tribal” in your article but I lost count in the first few paragraphs. Why do you hate Hichilema so much that, in order to prevent him occupying state house, you are willing to divide the country? May God have mercy on your soul.

    10
  22. Vote upnd and hh at your own peril. The vicious backlash against their perceived bemba enemies will destroy this country. KK knew this and that’s why he employed the one Zambia one nation philosophy. Hh is the reincarnation of the Nkumbula mishap that would’ve destroyed this country.

  23. SUNDAY CHANDA SUNDAY CHANDA ULO ULUPALA TAMWABA MANO. IF IT IS MWINE LUBEMBA WHO SENT YOU TO CAMPAIGN FOR HIM TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF TO BECOME THE KING OF ZAMBIA, OUR CONSTITUTION DOES NOT ALLOW. HE IS A CHIEF LIKE ANY OTHER CHIEFS TO MENTION A FEW – GAWA UNDI, MPEZENI, MWATA ETC.
    TWAKANA UKULWISHA INFUMU NAMAPOLITICS YOBE AYASHAKWATA UBUYO.
    YOU ARE SO DULL WHO DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE THAT BOWEL ILLED HEAD.

  24. Please Sunday Chanda stop this tribalism division of Zambia its time for economic emancipation of our country. Tonga, bemba,Ngoni lozi or whatever you want stop this division. What do you take some of us who have married other tribes? We truly believe in the One Zambia One Nation not your useless division which can cause another genocide.

  25. Sosala is not supposed to be chitimukulu. He rose to the throne by crook and hook. He is a commoner who has taken advantage of the real roysls dosality and ignorance. Ynis is the readon why he callls himself a strategist. There is no need need for UPND to dethtone him. We the enlighted royals will take him to court to explain why he should be the Chitimukulu. We shall install tbe rightful King who will be the father to all Zambians and to both rulling party and oppositions. The author of this message is 8th generation in a straight from king Mukulumpe of the luba-lunda empire.

  26. Another scheme by the PF to promote tribal division. They have nothing to offer the people.
    Only hardcore blind cadres support the PF.
    Most Zambians are eager to kick out these PF cooks.

  27. How can learned people still call UPND a tribal party when it was a party that had votes stolen from to stop the party from forming government? This one thing I cannot fathom about our ability to reason as a people. Twice the UPND has been to the finishing line and had been denied forming legitimate government due to vote rigging. This time we have all the disgruntled youths and their parents who will come out and vote for the UPND. Sunday Chanda will be Yesterday Chanda and Monday will never come for him!!

  28. Truth pains,Sunday Chanda has hit the nail on the head.Chief Mukuni is a bonafide member of upnd and he has never recognised Edgar Lungu as president,he even goes to an extent of spending nights at the grave yard to envoke ancestrial spirits against president Lungu and no chief from eastern provice has ever risen to say MAWA YAITANIDWA.Chitimukulu has spoken and the all batalion of upnd cadres has risen to condemn him, so mwalaumfwa ati CUUNDU CAITWA.What is good for the goose is good for the gander.Lukuku the spokes person for the opposition coalition insulted Chitimukulu and no one from this coalition has ever condemned him.Chi wamila mbuzi ku koma galu.

  29. Of all the 72 plus Zambian languages, it’s only Sunday Chanda and a few stupid bembas that are tribal as they think and chant nonsense each time they speak, don’t you have anything better to say that HH this, HH that, this is total BS

  30. After the gassing scheme failed, Sunday Chanda, the high priest of hate, has now hatched another scheme to bring a tribal war in Zambia. These ever scheming PFools are wretched people. May they fall into the very pit they dug for others and be buried there.

  31. Of all the 72 plus Zambian languages, it’s only Sunday Chanda and a few stupid bembas that are tribal as they think and chant nonsense each time they speak, don’t you have anything better to say or do ??HH this, HH that, this is total BS. Remember Chanda Chimba III, nothing good came out of him… Only maggots now on his carcass

  32. PF HAS REACHED AT A CLIMAX AND THAT IS WHY THEY TRY BY ALL MEANS TO KICK LEFT AND RIGHT SIDEWAYS, JUMP UP AND DOWN HH WILL BE SILENT. SEE HOW GBM HAS DANCED AND AT LAST MUMBI PHIRI SHUT HIM UP BY TELLING HIM TO SHOW UPND DEFECTORS AND NOT USING PF WITH UPND FITENGE SAYING THEY ARE UPND DEFECTORS.
    CHANDA HAS ULUPALA ULUSHAKWATA MANO. HE WILL BE THE FIRST MAN TO BURST WITH KALIJO- UMUFIMBILWA, AND YOU KNOW WHEN UMUFIMBILWA DISEASE GROWS BIG IT BURSTS AND EVERYONE WILL LOOK AT HIM AND SAY SORRY, BUT FYAKUIFWAILA. PEOPLE HAVE CHANGED AND UKWAYA UMWELA EKOTWALOLA.

    Hey that Chitimukulu article has comments disabled (how cowardly).

    But I must be confused, is corrupt Chitimukulu now entering partisan politics and publicly declaring his support for his fellow corrupt Lungu, and declaring an ethnic political war against HH and UPND? He must have been given so much money and land in Lusaka. How sad! Every progressive Bemba should condemn this chief because he is bringing ridicule and disrepute to the throne.
    There’s an unwritten cardinal rule why chiefs are advised to stay out of partisan politics and hold their bias and dislikes to themselves. The simple logical reasoning being, their subjects are members of various political parties and affiliations. The 2nd being they are supposed to work with government of the day which changes hands between…

    The 2nd being they are supposed to work with government of the day which changes hands between different parties from time to time.
    This is indeed a sad day for Zambia… the corrupt and tribalist Chitimukulu has sold his soul and the entire Bemba chiefdom to Lungu. He used to pretend and hide his hatred for HH and UPND and now I see why Sata couldn’t trust him. I have lost the last and little remnant of respect I had for him.

    Really Unbelievable and shameful!

  36. Please Chanda don’t drag every Bemba-speaking person into your sh1tty quest to remain in power. Some of us are married to very reasonable Bemba-speaking spouses and your desperation will destroy Zambia. Stop the phukin b’llsh1t please, stop it.

  37. Sosala is not supposed to be chitimukulu. He rose to the throne by crook and hook. He is a commoner who has taken advantage of the real royals dosality and ignorance. This is the reason why he calls himself a strategist. There is no need for UPND to dethrone him. We the enlightened royals will take him to court to explain why he should be the Chitimukulu. We shall install the rightful King who will be the father to all Zambians and to both ruling party and opposition. The author of this message is 8th generation in a straight line from king Mukulumpe of the Luba-Lunda empire. Sosala and your accestor cronies you cannot suppress the rightful bemba royals for this long. You even bring people to be Chief Nkula who are not bachinga. Do you even know who was the first Nkula? Do you know the…

  38. The desperate planga family at it’s best…I love how you guys are campaigning successfully for HH. Am definately coming to vote HH. Sunday Chanda you are a champion of campaigning and ur immaturity in politics never disappoints…hehehehe

  39. Tribe is not a qualification. People should not pride themselves in what they had no choice in. No one chooses into which tribe or race to be born in. What we want to hear from those in power and those aspiring to get in is how they will develop our nation. Dividing us based on regionalism and tribalism is WRONG!!!!
