By UPND Secretary General, Stephen Katuka
As UPND, we salute the people of Zambia for joining our cause to compel President Edgar Lungu to crack the whip by firing his right hand man, Dr Chitalu Chilufya from his Ministerial portfolio for recklessy subjecting millions of Zambia to various Sexually Transmitted Diseases(STIs).
While this decision is long overdue, we expect appropriate institutions such as the Anti-Corruption Commission to come in and nab him for acting contrary to Section 34(2)(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 3 of 2012 which provides ,in part:
“…a person commits an offence if the person fraudulently facilitates or makes payment from the Public revenue for (i) sub-standard of defective goods….”
It is also a culture under the Patriotic Front( PF) government not to prosecute perpetrators because they are all birds of the same feathers.
If Mr. Lungu is serious with the decision he has made, let Dr. Chitalu Chilufya be prosecuted with immediate effect.
Further, We demand that HoneyBee Pharmaceuticals and HoneyBee Pharmacy to be investigated have their licenses cancelled with immediate effect.
We also want the Permanent Secretary ,administration and the Board Chairman for Zambia Medicine Regulatory Authority to be fired too. We believe he is an accomplice for failing to discharge his administrative role.
We also call upon the Health Professions Council of Zambia to withdraw the licenses of all the aforesaid with immediate effect. They are a danger to human life.
We also note with concern the manner in which the PF government has continued to endorse corruption by blackmailing citizens on some government officials who are appearing in court for various offences without convictions.
It is very evident that Edgar Lungu is not serious with his fight against corruption.
We have known criminals like Kaizer Zulu ,Stephen Kampyongo, Spax ,Muchima, commonly known as America two who are still living lavishly when they are supposed to be in prison.
Many Zambians know that under Kampyongo, there are so many extra-judicial killings yet he still continues to draw public funds.
The negligence by Dr Chilufya to put expired drugs and leaking condoms amount to crimes against humanity.
It is a fact that his removal from the Ministry will not erase the effect of expired drugs and licking condoms on peoples lives therefore we shall hold President Edgar Lungu as a leader responsible for killing Zambians with expired drugs and exposing Zambians to STI’s, HIV/AIDS and unwanted pregnancies later alone illegal abortions.
Zambians, who are the true owners of the resources being enjoyed by PF hoodlums, want answers as to why a Minister, who swore an oath to protect life, could allow a non-existent, questionable medical supplier to supply leaked condoms, gloves and fake medicines at an exorbitant US$17 million.
This scandal and delay by President Lungu to act clearly indicates that PF government cares less about people’s lives hence the need for people of Zambia to elect President Hakainde Hichilema a leader with interest to build better lives for all.
President Lungu’s leadership is an embarrassment to the international community; USA spends millions of dollars on Zambia’s health and characters like Dr Chitalu Chilufya would only secure defective medical supplies to millions of Zambia? God forbid!
He and others must face the wrath of the law. We shall not rest until justice for Zambians is done.
This is just the beginning,as UPND we shall not allow corruption and other ills to continue.
Enough is Enough.
upnd is the party that champions evil things to happen to you, to me and to the other fellow, as well as to the nation.
Ba SG is it Muchima or Muchemwa its abit confusing. Yes the firing of Kilufya Kitalu is long overdue. Now that he has been left bare its time for ACC and DEC to move in and start building up a case against this disgraced man. The President has acted from public pressure and it is up to the CED and ACC to do their job.
This killer should be summoned at police force headquarters for questioning.He has committed a serious offence.If the police does not summon him then it will be concluded that this is a PF corrupt money spinner.I wonder why madam Edith nawakwi, Sunday chanda, chilufya tayali and spuki mulemwa are quite! Is it because it is their own . Oh l wish kaizar zulu will say something positive.
PF is a killer party,how do such a thing to your citizens.
Prosecute? With Manda at ACC?
THAT IS WHY I LIKE TAYALI… HE IS A BRAVE CHAP WHO TAKES MATTERS SERIOUSLY. WHEN HE HAS EVIDENCE HE TAKES IT TO THE POLICE AND PUSHES FOR PROSECUTION. BUT IMWEE LYONSE KUBOSA FYE ! BO BO BO BO. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR EVIDENCE TAKE IT FOR PROSECUTION. TAYALI DID IT AND CHISHIMBA IS DANCING PELETE AND SOON HIS FRIEND WILL ALSO START DANCING.
@chitutuma evil hearted is when a pro poor supplies defective medical supplies to poor masses they claim to represent,worse still even go for prayers on thw 18th of october, yet masses are been fed on spoiled drugs and using defective condoms.
The matter is being investigated and yet this very dull and ugly man thinks you can just automatically prosecute someone without a solid case and evidence. Imagine these are the f00ls begging you to vote for them.
Upnd are opportunist without any agenda.
Just look at the ugliness of this man. What is even sadder is that he is also ugly inside. Yuk
Imagine the UPND president Hakkainde Hichilema was involved in the Honeybee scandal. Stephen Kampyongo and his associates would have detained or assaulted him immediately. That’s why everyone is asking ; why is Lungu keeping Stephen Kampyongo?

But what has Chitalu got to do with this? If anyone has followed the proceedings of the PAC, you will note that only the controlling officers were responsible for the award.
Firing Chitalu is a matter of principle, such negligence shouldnt have been allowed to happen, but asking that he be criminallly prosecuted is a stretch too far, what evidence exists that HE had control over the affairs of the awarding committee? Logicallly speaking, we dont have any evidence of his wrongdoing, so enough with being overzelous and crying for a prosecution.
KZ you are a known criminal. The only way you are but in courts/jail because of your ex boss.
Let’s see when HH is in power. Only in Zambia gangsters/politicians/criminals like you who are affiliated with the government are roaming free.
If this scandal would have happened elsewhere there would be mass arrests and a commission of inquiry would have set up.
But not in Zambia. Why because we have a known thief/ criminal running the country
Iwe chirwa, don’t defend the minister because any procurement is discussed! even when he flagged he was doing it after seeing the documents. A doctor doesn’t do things without evidence because of the training that they do. In short he knew what he was doing even the high officer knew because samples were talken and brought to the offices for verification meaning chilufya and the ministry were fully aware of the deal.
Thanks Chiza . Well articulated to the point. Only shallow minded characters like Katuka can say nonsense. Let us wait for investigations please. Dont be like Trump who wants to win when he lost usa elections
Scouser the only problem with that comment is that your f00lish saviour hh will never lead this country. Zambians are too clever to allow a tribal party full of hateful people to rule them
Kalyauzumanana, who told you that the minister was aware of this? The job of any minister is to create policy as per government objectives, they don’t deal with daily runnings of the ministries, thats what permanent secretaries are for. I am aware of course, that some ministers are corrupt and influence the award of tenders, we have seen this before.
However, in this case, we dont see how Chitalu is implicated, there has been no mention of his role, whether directly or not. please take a listen to the PAC, or alternatively, read it off news diggers, its free. The PS, controlling officers, Medical stores and Honeybee seem to have been in some deal, the minister is not mentioned at all.
Alas, go ahead and prosecute, this will go no where.
kaizar zulu don’t take a position for GOD my brother go and eat your fresh fries. can’t you be ashamed of yourself because in your party this is where tribalism is rampage?
Sometimes i wonder if truely @Kaizer Zulu was the presidential adviser. I mean i would someone with senses mingle with that uncouth loathesome piece of crap in the name of Kaizer? How diffficult is it that he cant control his stinking mouth?
