I didn’t Block UPND, HH Refused to Pay K4 000 for a Political Program on PASME Radio-DC

Headlines I didn't Block UPND, HH Refused to Pay K4 000 for a...

Petauke District Commissioner Mrs Velenasi Banda Moyo refuted reports that he had stopped PASME Radio from running a paid program of United Party for National Development (UPND) Leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Reacting to reports that he had stopped the recording Mrs. Moyo described the report as fake news, the claim by United Party UPND leader that She was responsible for his failure to feature on PASME Radio in Petauke.

Mrs. Moyo said that Mr Hichilema was scheduled to hold a Radio program at PASME Radio and he was told to pay K4,000 since it was going to be a recorded program. Mr Hichilema then withdrew upon hearing the charge and instead maliciously posted on his Facebook page alleging that the District Commissioner directed Pasme Radio management to stop the program.

The District Commissioner said the “outburst” confirms what people say about the opposition leader over his desperate efforts to cause a total breakdown of government operations by generating fake news.”

Mrs Moyo said that Mr Hichilema’s recent outburst is aimed at playing to the gallery and creating unnecessary tension as a confirmation of his group’s desperate move to breach the peace adding that his publication suggests a clear determination to use the fake news he spewed to incite the people under his control and she advised members of the Public to treat such publication as fake.

“We note with concern the fake news published we also wish to inform the public that we have opted to take the matter to court. Note that the news being circulated by Mr Hichilema on social media about Petauke District Commissioner is fake and has no grain of truth in it.” Said Mrs Moyo.

However, UPND further issued a statement condemning in strongest terms what it described as the violent attack on PASME Radio Station by Petauke District Commissioner, Ms Velenesi Moyo, and called for her arrest

The party said that it was taken aback and greatly dismayed by the continued thuggery behavior exhibited under the Edgar Lungu Administration on the media, saying that it is very disheartening to note that journalists and the media, in general, have continued to work under very difficult and extremely hostile environment under the PF regime.

The party said that the act by the DC amounted not only to criminal trespass punishable by the laws of the land but also
a violation of media freedoms as well as freedom of expression, adding that citizens who want to pass on their information to fellow citizens are not able to because of power-hungry elements in the PF.

” It is due to the lack of leadership skills by Mr Lungu that statutory bodies such as the Independent Broadcasting Authority and the Zambia Police Service are unable to protect media houses and citizens, ” the statement read.

The statement concluded by calling for the immediate arrest of the DC, failure to which citizens shall effect a citizen’s arrest.

  1. But why does a political party need to pay the DC’s office? We know from the station manager that Everything was in order between them and the party.

  2. So, Lungu has employed D Cs to collect revenue for private radio stations. This is laughable stressing there is gravely rottiness going on in PF. Who can believe this lie from this pathetic Petauke DC of UPND failure to pay K4000. KiKiKiKikikiki keep cheating on your corrupt morals not to Zambians.

  5. Lame excuse. You can buy it. When did a DC enjoin herself to manage contractual between private parties? DC has a civil service jurisdiction.
    You are a lady and behave in lovely way. Why do you want to spoil the respectability of a Zambian womanhood?
    In the of our Lord and Saviour JESUS, repent from sins of lies.
    We are tired of such behaviour. For once let us make our Country Zambia great and exemplary

  7. This area being rural, I suspect the private Radio Station, in desperation, might have appealed to ANY authority in the area to intervene. Mind you this is a PRIVATE station which survives on revenues from adverts.

  8. STRANGE!..NO BLOGGER HAS BEEN ABLE TO WEIGH THE DCs DOWN PAYMENT REASON AGAINST OTHER STATIONS REQUIREMENTS.

  9. Why should payment be made to a DC for appearance on a radio station? Does the station in any way belong to the DC or the Party in the district? Isn’t this the same as those taxes collected at bus stations? Why are we allowing this level of mediocre lawlessness in the country?

  10. No where does it say that the payment was to or should have been made to the DC. It is clearly stated that the childish hyena decided not to pay the station when told free then as expected he went on social media to post lies that he had been stopped from appearing. All this just for political mileage. And you think upnd can win an election with this childish behaviour and lies. The upnd is finished since mazoka died. They are now a tribal grouping of desperate liars who will do anything to win elections. No difference from their supporters in diaspora. Eeembwa fye

    • Sir these are just politics. As an experienced adult you don’t have to go on with your insults and miss heaven because of politics. Every politician’s aim is to win elections that’s y some even steal votes win. Go through the posts from HH on Facebook and see the receipt showing the payment of the money that the radio station demanded and The UPND paid before being interrupted by this woman.

  11. Mukupa the radio have confirmed that he did not make payment. Are you telling me if they made payment the radio would be quiet? Hh wakaso. What is 4000 to a self proclaimed billionaire? Last time we have to force him to donate during covid. I genuinely think hh is in debt and is desperate to get into power to sort his finances out. How can a leader fail to pay 4000

  12. Hh thought he was in his bedroom in dundumwezi where he can just go to any station without paying and spew his faeces on air. Good for the station refusing to air him without payment.

  13. Zulu, always remember that you are talking that way becoc you and Lungu feed from the same plate. Bt the truth is that time is coming when you will acount for your actions. For now yes you can open ur mouth carelessly coz you think PF wil be ther in power forever. UNIP and MMD thought the same.

  15. It is just surprising how the District Commissioner’s office finds itself entangled in the business of a radio station and a political party. Even if HH and his grouping did not pay the radio station, that should not be the DC’s concern or business, lest the radio station makes a complaint to Zambia Police. It is such elements like the DC that are tarnishing the work of the President. Now the opposition will not only air their grievances towards the DC but also the Independent Broadcasting Authority and PF leadership as being behind such and working against the opposition political party. PF in Petauke should distance itself from the DC’s actions and hold her accountable.

  16. Civil servant Kaizer Zulu your job is to post on social media. Show us your individual work plan of the month. Your APAS is needed. Job description of position.
    Ba boss Dr SIMON MITI talk to KAIZER ZULU…… CIVIL SERVANT insulting for politics. Ba Mwine why?

  17. That is the reason SATA started his official duty by firing all the DCs in the country. Let the incoming president do the same.

  18. Mwendo read my previous posts. I am tired of explaining.my IT team used a fixed VPN which allocates me a UK based IP address for security purposes. When I joined I was using my work gadgets to blog and there were various attempts made by opposition to hack my accounts. In other words this is a security measure. I am 100 percent currently in lusaka. Kz

  19. PF officials and top cadres have got no other means of survival if they are kicked out of power. They are only good at managing there personal economy not the country’s economy. You have failed to manage the Dollar Kwacha battle, load shading etc and you need another term? What do you want to solve in next term? You failed to solve the problem that you created yourself such as high mealie-meal price.
    Voting for you will be like refusing a murderer to be tried in the court of law.

  20. We all know what is happening in Zambia.Mrs Moyo my sister, don’t ruin your name in the name of POLITICS people are telling lies for the survival nowadays insoni ebuntu.2021 is coming to test every lies between Politicians and People of Zambia not PF or UPND it shall be ZAMBIANS vs POLITICAL PARTIES and Lies vs Truth

  21. DC my foot! Such shallow leaders supervising the educated civil servants in the district is beyond imagination. She can lie through her teeth that HH failed to pay K4,000 and not surprising she’s been supported by Kaizer Zulu whose preoccupation is to blog on LT. This woman is so shameless that she can lie to the entire world. KZ I presume your hatred for HH has blinded you to even the obvious. UPND paid K1000 which was even receipted before your cadre DC intervened to stop the program. Diamond TV even showed the receipt on their program on friday 14 Aug.I can’t agree more, President Data was right to fire all DCs as activity number 1 who n he took office and I see a repeat of the same.

  22. A civil servant to sue on her own behalf for something related to performing a public function? Since whn? The office she occupies is not personal or a PF party office. I hv never heard of wht she’s trying to do. The normal thing for a public officer is to issue a written statement to set the record straight. But this is probably too much to expect from this most political of offices which is disguised as non-political.

  24. Jokers and bi.tches like this thing called Avelesi Banda Moyo can never make sense.
    It is even a waste of time responding to her. Every idyot knows a DC cannot be a credit controller of a radio station.
    This is the practical example of the lawlessness that Lungu has brought to this country. The bi.tch is playing the only game she knows, i.e. cadrerism. She is married but opens her legs to any PF official in order to keep her job.

  25. DC are u the Radio’s Sales Manager? To be honest, u have no brains. Believe it or not, u were appointed based on your bottom power. U know it too.

  26. Do these radio stations operate as charity. We always here of “This advert is paid for by the political party concerned”. The money is not paid to the DC, it is paid to the radio station. The DC responded because she was accused of having stopped the “Bally”from conducting his “talk shows” The Dc only enquired to find out how she was implicated in this saga and found out that “Bally “was less than candid. “Mrs. Moyo said that Mr Hichilema was scheduled to hold a Radio program at PASME Radio and he was told to pay K4,000 since it was going to be a recorded program. Mr Hichilema then withdrew upon hearing the charge and instead maliciously posted on his Facebook page alleging that the District Commissioner directed Pasme Radio management to stop the program”

  27. What would make sense is that after the differences in expectations, the Radio station must have reported the matter to higher authorities because they were smart enough to know that this would end up on social media and tarnish their reputation. I keep saying it and can’t stress any further “you can’t trust what that man says”.

  28. IF BROTHERS AND SISTERS CANT COEXIST
    IN THE SO CALLED CHRISTIAN NATION, WHICH INVESTOR CAN FEEL SAFE OR WELCOME. MAYBE THE MATIA! HOW MANY MORE MEDIA HOUSES DO YOU WANT TO DISTROY BA PF
    SEE EVIDENCE ON ZAMBIAN WATCHDOG – Media bodies condemn PF for closing Petauke radio

  29. All the DC is saying is that Oval Head ”failed” to pay the 4 pin! I don’t understand why dull bloggers here are accusing the DC that ”why should she be the one to collect the money?”! Learn to discern, yaba losers! Above all the truth can only come from the Manager at the Radio Station!

  30. Kaizer stop lying in the video the radio has not even mentioned payment. Speak the truth it shall set you free. Even with your bad behavior at least speak the truth.

  31. THE DAY THE MONKEY HAS TO DIE ALL TREES BECOME SLIPPERY, WE CAN SEE TODAY THAT WHATEVER THE PF DOES LOOK RIDICULOUS IN THE EYES OF THE PUBLIC, MEANING THE MONKEY IS ABOUT TO DIE AND THAT TIME HAD ARRIVED LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT, NOW THEY ARE IN A HURRY TO DO FIVE YEARS WORK IN ONE YEAR, THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE GUYS. JUST SURRENDER.
