Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Gary Nkombo retains Elections position with Giles Yambayamba is appointed Tourism Chairperson.Bernard Mpundu is chairman for Industrial Development while Likando Mufalari is in charge of infrastructure,”he told a jubilant crowd.

President Hichilema says the rest of the portfolio chairpersons and their deputies will be announced in due course as he implored the newly appointed team to get on the ground running as the work on the ground is demanding and will not accept laziness as the country is expectant of the UPND.

  1. Who even takes these clowns seriously. My daughter is way more mature than these clowns and yet she is in primary. A party run on the foundation of tribalism can never rule in a country like Zambia where its founding father embedded the one Zambia one nation notion. These are tribal criminals who should never be allowed to rule. Tasila lungu will be president before hh.

  2. Hh does not appeal to peace loving zambian. How can a man lead to the death of 2 innocent men all for the sake of his political ambitions. He is told to not take cadres to police, he does opposite and lives are lost. And this is the guy who thinks he can rule? He can president of his little party there in new kasama. A warning to upnd. If you bring violence this year, I am not playing. We will deal with you before handing you to police. I will grab you by the balls and squeeze hard until you squeal like a constipated hyena

  8. Indeed hit the ground running, already mapping strategy immediately the portfolio got attached to the name! Mind you the police will play their tricks to disadvantage the campaigning but before the campaign period is officially declared! Go out mobilizing and educating the Zambian people on the importance of elections and voting! As PF has stepped up “inspecting projects” so can you inspect your party structures assessing readiness for the elections!

  10. This is now a “One Zambia One Nation Party. It is tribally and regionally balanced, Gender Sensitive and Strategic. UPND is a Role Model Party showing other Political Parties a way forward. Even the Panga Family can takeaway some things from the UPND Party. Well done HH and UPND Alliance.

  16. Congratulations to the appointees. I don’t know why he has retained Jack Muleza Mwiimbu at Legal when he failed to prepare a sensible election petition. I also don’t know why he hasn’t appointed Patrick Mucheleka as SG because he got the 2nd most high votes. I also don’t know why he embraces rogues like Chellah Tukuta and others. Hichilema can be embarrassingly petty at times

  18. The appointments are just fine. From now go flat out and demolish the PF strongholds as that’s where the biggest number of voters are. The PF made sure of that. But the most important thing this year is to protect the votes. Remember HH and his management team cannot be everywhere all the time

  21. ALSO CAN SOME EXPLAIN WHY OPPOSITION MAMBERS ARE GAYS AND THE RULING PARTY HAS NO GAYS
    BESIDES THAT GAYS ARE GODS CHILDREN WHETHER WE AGREE OR NOT AND WHETHER WE LIKE THEM OR NOT
    THEY TOO ARE HUMANS AND DESERVE TO BE TREATED AS SUCH AND PROTECTED BY OUR MORAL CODE AND UNDER HUMAN RIGHTS
    THIS IS MENTIONED BECAUSE THIS SORT OF ARCHAIC THINKING AND iNSULTS WILL CERTAINLY NOT BRING A PEACEFUL ELECTION
    SADLY I’VE SAID BEFORE THIS COMING ELECTION WILL BE THE MOST CONTRAVERSIAL IN THE 56 YEARS OF OUR INDEPENDENCE

  22. Tarinno, advise KZ to take his tablets, his braggadocio rants is getting worse each time taps key board letters. Becomes normal soon he ceases to think about UPND. Typical of a paranoiac person gets prompted with triggers of his long misuse of narcotic substances that has impaired his mental capacity. Sad to be seen only through meaningless rants on keyboard.

  23. So you see we have been saying the tribal party must reform. The Item number one on its agenda is TRIBAL. My young brother HH this could come a little too late for you with August just around the corner. For the young generation yes right move. You do not change drivers while the bus is just leaving the station. So the young generation are going to make real changes to this cosmetic tribal bus.

  24. My concern is that these appointments were not done in good faith. It gives the UPND executive a lot of political power and only encourages bootlicking.

    The workable practical way should have been electing then during the convention meeting. The party is NOT democratic, but autocratic with so much reliance on the UPND president sidelining the constitution.

  25. The above comment refers to LT as i put pee in another post which was deleted
    just proving their algorithms are up to pot

  26. Hichilema is just president of Upnd, a party, so its wrong to give him title of president, like “predident Hichilema said . . . “, ” president Hichilema has congratulated . . . . . “. Thats why you give him bad omen because you want him to be what hes not and what he can never be! These things come from God, who ever thought (in PF party) Edgar Lungu would be president of the party and the nation Zambia! Even himself was just surprised! Those who were positioning themsekves like Kambwili, GBM , Kabimba didnt make it! Leadership is from God and not from man! So no matter how much you eulorigize Hichilema by giving him ” president” title, if God doesnt want, he will never be. So that desperstion shown by you who pray and drink Hichilema just irritates us who know hes a wrong person…

  27. So that desperstion shown by you who pray and drink Hichilema just irritates us who know hes a wrong person for this country’s predidency! And there can only be one president, not two, at a time. This line up Hichilema has dictated as his NMC is heavily Tonga, i have said before, Tonga is a small tribe in this country, it cannot rule the bigger Bemba grouping! Period!

  31. Please please please, stop calling Hichilema “president Hichilema”, hes not a president and he will never be one. Say “Upnd president”, and there after you simply address him as “Mr. Hichilema”. There can only be one president at a time! Take note Upnd media team and their allies!

All progressive governments rely on borrowed money to fund their manifestos. Where from do you think will Baden of USA get the trillion $ to fund infrastructure projects he is talking about? Where from and how do people in Lusaka get money to build mansions? Cash savings? Your hh is a dreamer……

  36. I congratulate all our members who have been appointed to the head the various portfolios in the NMC. I keep the spirit burning and its time hit the ground to mobilize for more members.

  37. This is not good enough. Its purely tribal just like PF. 90 percent are from southern and western. I think we are in trouble in country. Tribalism has come to stay

  38. This is not good enough. Its purely tribal just like PF. 90 percent are from southern and western. I think we are in trouble in country. Tribalism has come to stay. HH won’t change anything. I thought he had a very powerful team but look at this. The same recycled cadres musokotwane, Tekere, etc

  39. Luapula Premier
    I WONT ARGUE WITH YOU YOU HAVE A STRONG OPINION AND YOU NOT LIKE THE FAKE KAIZER ZULU CHARACTER THROWING INSULTS AROUND
    SO I RESPECT YOUR ASSESSMENT OF THE COUNTRY SO PLEASE IN THE SAME MANNER RESPECT MINE
    AUGUST IS JUDGEMENT DAY

  40. “William Tekere Banda is National Chairman for Special duties with Namakau Kabwiku and Andrew Banda are deputy National Chairmen. What is special duties? Could this be the same duties as Hon Freedom Sikazwe Mp? If it is then UPND is not capable of bringing in change to Zambia. I am out searching again for a true party that will bring in real change.
