  1. Mistaken appointment, this man may have donated a lot to the UPND but he isn’t known to the Zambia people.
    Stephen Katuka should have been replaced, he had a defeatist mentality and was not as hard working as his counterpart in PF. Mwila is known to have razed the entire Petauke PF leadership after they lost a by-election, he couldn’t accept that. Ba Katuka would just complain when they lost in their stronghold.
    Also, should we worry with all these last names in this article? UPND being selective in tribal appointments, similar with the PF.

  2. People keep boasting about UPND being more inclusive but the more I read their articles I can not see more women and youths. I seem to see a lot of Tongas though.

  3. The new SG of UPND deserves support in his enthusiasm to declare that his party will certainly carry the day COME aUGUST 12,2021.He has in his team a guy called Guy Scott who is surprisingly the consultant of UPND.In one of the screaming headlines,the defunct Post News Papers carried a headline which quoted HH as having said “SCOTT MOST STUPID WHITE MAN”. The biggest puzzle is that at what stage did HH realise that the guy he called the most stupid white man is after all the most clever and intelligent white man worth being appointed CONSULTANT?

  4. Kci we told you hahaha. They said only Tonga can rule that party. Also this man is a nobody. Can some one care to explain to me who he is ????

  5. TRUTH BE TOLD- THE UPND PARTY IS FOR TONGAS ONLY RIGHT FROM THE BEGINING AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED AND THE OWNERS OF THE PARTY ARE VERY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT IT’S FOR TONGAS ONLY. THE APPOINTMENT OF MUTALE NALUMANGO TO THE VICE PRESIDENT IS JUST A SMOKE SCREEN. SHE IS THE EASIEST TO REMOVE FROM HER POSITION AND GET REPLACED BY A REAL TONGA IF THEY HAD TO WIN THE AUGUST ELECTIONS. THESE ARE THE TWO MAIN REASONS SHE HAS BEEN APPOINTED AS VICE PRESIDENT. HH LOOKED AROUND AND ALL BEMBA MEN AND WOMEN WERE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET REMOVED AFTER THE ELECTION. TAKE EG CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI. DO YOU THINK HH WOULD DARE REMOVE CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI. ACHEPA SANA HH. TETI AKWANISHE UKUFUMYAPO CK IMMEDIATELY AFTER AMA ELECTIONS.

  7. NOBODY CALLS YOU DEVILS. YOU HAVE JUST CALLED YOURSELVES, “DEVILS”. IN FACT ALL ZAMBIANS LOVE TONGAS AND OTHER LANGUAGE GROUPINGS IN ZAMBIA. ZAMBIANS HATE YOUR TROUBLE POLICIES SUCH AS QUOTA, UPND FOR TONGAS, ONLY A TONGA WILL TAKE UPND/TONGAS TO STATE HOUSE. IT’S NOT OTHER PEOPLE WHO SAY ALL THESE. IT’S YOU YOURSELVES. WE JUST WATCH AND LISTEN. IT’S YOU WHO STARTED BEATING UP OTHER SO CALLED TRIBES IN YOUR TONGALAND AND BURNING THEIR HOUSES AND MOSTLY BEMBAS FACED THE BLUNT OF IT. NO OTHER TRIBE RETALIATED BECAUSE THEY LOVE PEACE AND TONGAS. DON’T PUT YOUR WORDS IN OTHER PEOPLES’ MOUTHS. WE CERTAINLY FEAR YOU IN GOVERNMENT.
