Charles Kakoma dumps UPND for PF

Headlines Charles Kakoma dumps UPND for PF

Immediate past UPND National Spokesman Charles Kakoma has ditched the opposition party to join the ruling PF.

Addressing a media briefing, Mr Kakoma said he has decided to move to the PF where he will be treated like an asset unlike the UPND which treated him like a liability.

Mr Kakoma said from now onwards, he will campaign for President Edgar Lungu to be re-elected President in August.

He said UPND President Hakainde Hichilema was a very bad man whose preoccupation is going to State House.

Mr Kakoma was recently drafted into the UPND National Management Committee and was one of the longest serving MPs for Zambezi West in North Western Province.

Mr. Kakoma was received by senior PF leaders among them Steven Kampyongo, Samuel Mukupa, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and Kennedy Kamba

  1. Straight from the horse’s mouth. We have always said that hh is preoccupied with his own ambitions of going to state house to oil the pockets of his sponsors. His gay sponsors from the west.

    If a person who was regarded so highly within the upnd ranks can say this surely how can any sane human vote hh? Only mad baboons like chella tukuta can support such nonsense. I don’t even know why that boy is a celebrated photographer when I have seen far much better photos from amateurs.

  2. Our political leaders lacks principals, rather than serving people, their many interests is their own pockets. With this type of people in the corridors of power, we are heading nowhere.

  5. So he finally got the offer that was on the table 2 million plus a house and car if I remember very well. This is bad for HH and his crew or person al holder party. Politics is a dirty game

  6. UPND is very strong on social media but on the ground UPND is not that strong. Has Dr Guy Scott started advising HH? Having a weak opposition political party is not good for Zambia.

  7. We are yet to witness massive defections after both ruling party and opposition announce their adopted candidates

  8. HH will remain alone in UPND because his the alpha and omega in putting the people in positions. UPND has hard more vice presidents than UNIP a sign that HH can not work with others.

    Good luck to him… I keep asking what is UPND’s strategy to defeat corrupt Lungu and his minions, and actually get rid of him even if he is defeated. We know Lungu will use ECZ and Concourt to do everything he can to extend his stranglehold on to power!
    UPND needs a proper workable solution!

  10. There will be exodus before election, fake dealers will smell the wind and start changing directions. Mr Kakoma is just exercising his political right to belong to a part of his choice except society does not take kindly when an opposition figure crosses to the ruling party. We hardly see those in the ruling party ditching their party for the opposition, hence as society we only assume that being in the opposition is tough and some cannot wait any longer and probably have even lost all hope. Last month ba Kakoma was busy castigating the PF for causing such an inflation rate in the country. I guess things can change so fast or kapena now he is not seeing the poverty after a visit by the special guys from PF.

  11. Good riddance charles was a very ineffective spokesperson. He thinks he’s an asset to deliver northwestern to PF but truth be told he’s only known in his home village of zambezi west.

  12. Paipa pano!! Is the g12 requirements at play here?? But if you look between the lines, North Western has been seriously invaded by PF and might fall to them. Thirdly, this a deadly blow to hh’s confidence and public perception.

  13. That’s not surprising. GBM defected back to PF and CK is defecting back to PF. So Charles Kakoma’s defection to PF is understood. Kakoma wanted to be appointed VP in UPND but Madam Nalumango got it. In frustration Kakoma has defected to PF. We shall see if ECL will consider him an Asset and appoint him his VP and Running Mate ? I guess Kakoma couldn’t resist :”Uubomba Mwibala Alya Mwibala ” There are no Principles in Zambian Politics. Charles Kakoma is risking being sent “ku wire”. Anyway we wish him well.

  14. Ambitious Charles Kakoma thought he was going to be appointed UPND VP and when Madam Nalumango got the position Kakoma felt frustrated. We shall if PF will consider him an Asset and appoint him to a Senior Post in PF. Charles Kakoma surprisingly has no Principles. He wants to go and “live well” in PF. Yes:”Uubomba Mwibala walya Mwibala”. Good timing for Charles Kakoma.

  15. ‘Sour grapes’? Acting meanly after a disappointment. What’s the origin of the phrase ‘Sour grapes’? In the fable The Fox and the Grapes, which is attributed to the ancient Greek writer Aesop, the fox isn’t able to reach the grapes and declares them to be sour

  16. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter whether the person leaving is principled or not, bottom line is that it is damaging for HH to continue losing people who have worked closely with him. These people are all leaving with no good tales to tell about him. As a leader why does he fail to inspire a sense of Loyalty, Sacrifice and Belief in all the people that work closely with him?

  17. For a party that has had so many vice presidents this to be expected. HH can not work with people. We will seeing more of this. He has failed to work with Sakwiba, GBM, Kambwili, Banda the list is endless and is he telling us all these people are bad.

  18. WISE MAN KAKOKMA.
    GOOD MOVE FOR DROPPING/DUMPING SUPPORTING UPND FILTHY DICTATOR WHO WANT TO TAKE HIS DICTATORSHIP TO THE STATE LEVEL. I HOPE THAT MORE WILL SEE THROUGH THIS FILTHY POTENTIAL DICTATOR BY THE NAME OF HAKALUSA HAGAIN.

  19. If he had any principles,Kakoma would have joined another opposition party like DP,MMD etc.However,its clear that money is the main motive.Good riddance to the opposition in Zambia.

  20. Charles Kakoma recently revealed that ECL had offered him a bribe to defect to PF. He said he was offered K3m, a Car with free fuel,a House, a Good Job with extras. At the time he refused the bribe. After being overlooked to be appointed UPND VP he has re-considered the offer and accepted it. That’s the Power of ECL’s Moto: “Uubomba Mwibala Alya Mwibala Alya Mwibala “. Charles Kakoma couldn’t resist…”too much money and People are living well”. We wish him well on the Gravy Train.

  21. UMU BEMBA NAO ATI, “INAMA YAMWAICE TAINONA”
    THAT IS EXACTLY HOW HH TAKES POLITICAL AFFAIRS. ACILI ALENYALA MUMATEBELA.

  22. There is nothing much HH could have done. Charles Kakoma himself revealed recently that ECL had offered him a huge bribe which included K3 million,a Car, House,Good Job,Fuel etc. Kakoma couldn’t resist the offer especially when Madam Nalumango was appointed VP instead of him. We hope ECL will keep his promises should Kakoma fail to become an Asset in PF. Time will tell.

  23. Dying to hear how he will explain his stance on the issues he opposed last week, i.e eligibility issue, POA, State of Economy, perceived biasness of state institutions etc ? Can some radio station host him on a live show ASAP please ?

  24. The problem is both parties are the same: leftist, liberal, so jumping from one to the other is easy. In the US the differences to wide for anyone to consider that that’s why it rarely happens.

  25. This is what he meant when Gary Nkombo or someone from upnd said that some of their members have applied to stand on PF ticket. More will come out later. Imagine jumping off the horse when you are just about to cross the finish line.

  26. Its his constitutional right.
    Wish him good luck in his political life meanwhile we are dismissing the pf on 12/08/21.
    He can never deliver north west to pf.

  27. When news went out that Charles Kakoma (CK) has been demoted, it was opposed by the UPND brass.
    In effect, HH dumped CK who now finds solace in PF. We all seek to find our own relevance when rejected.

  28. Next we will hear the that MAN has apologised for blocking the President’s motorcade and is defecting to PF. Watch the space. Zambia is a Christian country and do forgive one another.

  29. If he thinks he is an asset let him go and contest on PF ticket in Zambezi West. Good luck, mwata Kakoma, natukaliwana kumize!!!Lol

  30. Yes we are in the season of impantila, ntata, fleas. Its election time and they jump the highest and widest during this time. Its normal. But for this one, I really didn’t expect this. This is a bomb. I just read this on LT and immediately called my mother who is a staunch UPND supporter. She’s still in shock. Some people are saying that this is even a bigger bomb than when upnd vice president kalima joined pf because kakoma was more visible to the public as spokes person. Hakainde should do a serious self examination.

  31. Just shows how unprincipled the man is – couldn’t he move to a civilised party, no matter how small? PF? For goodness sake!

  32. There is a big problem in the UPND party, could it be the it is the president of the party is the reason they leaving the party.
    It is worrisome that those resigning are the top most of the party if Kakoma resigns then who remains in this party and if Katuka refuses to stand on any position then a crises is there it all just started with Kambwili who dumped his partner in politics, however the followers of Kambwili who chose to dump their leader for this party this can be a good opportunity for them to stand on HH party.

  33. UPND top brass get confused when elections are near. Kakoma has spent 22 years of his political life in UPND, that he leaves the party of his life need serious analysis and not just shouts of – ‘njala’, ‘unprincipled’ etc. The man was an insider. Ate with the best in UPND but after the party congress, he was reduced to a nobody. It is better for people to contest for positions and lose on their own.

  35. KWAMANA! HH W[LLL NOT RULE ZAMBIA BECAUSE HE REFUSES TO RECOGNIZE OTHERS .. HAD HE RECOGNIZED SATA HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT.. HAD HHE RECOGNIZED CK THE OPPOSITION’S HOOPE OF WINNING WOULLD HAVE INCREASED

  36. It is very much confusing with Zambian politics. To supporters of either PF or UPND please let us not judge people in leadership based on what we think and see. These leaders have so much to say and not say. So when one leader decides to leave a certain, all wise there reasons which should be either positive or negative. No one can decide to leave a winning team unless he or she is wrong upstairs. Wait and see what is yet to come.

  37. Where are the morals of these people? This guy has just shut his own door. He is late and will live to regret his childish decision and selfish position. Zambians. Awe ubuwelewele bwena ebwafulamo. Bushe ubupuba pa Zambia chifyalilwa?

  38. Joining a party of your choice is a right which should be respected but did you people hear the reason for leaving. He says he didn’t want to leave even after demotion but his followers made him to do so. Am disappointed with his reason because he has highlighted that he wanted Luvales to be appointed by HH. I think that is tribalism and we should not condone it as Zambians. He will find it challenging to work with ECL because the man doesn’t care what tribe you are but does it on merit. This guy will ditch PF when he feels not many Luvales are appointed to high positions.

  39. Congratulations brother Kakoma. At least now there is hope Zambezi will see development. I am following you to the PF and I know most UPND members in Zambezi are thinking like me because we have lagged behind in terms of development for too long all because our MPs in UPND have been frustrating development deliberately by not implementing government projects for fear of making the ruling party popular. However, we know that the government has always been eager to bring development to Zambezi just like any part of Zambia.

  40. LET US HOPE BROTHER KAKOMA BY JOINING PF WILL BUILD THE BRIDGE ACROSS ZAMBEZI RIVER WHICH CHRISTABELL NGIMBU PROMISED THE LUVALE AND LUNDAS TO SINCE PF IS BUILDING BRIDGES ALL OVER LUSAKA TOWN BECAUSE RIVERS IN ZAMBIA ARE NOWHERE.

  41. HH’s intelligence told him not to promote Kakoma to the position of SG or VP. Just Imagine if HH had promoted him to either of these two positions. He was going to damage the UPND Brand. The thing is Charles was bribed by ECL and was paid alot of money and other assets. HH realised that his friend had no Principles. Indeed Charles Kakoma timely betrayed his friend HH during Easter and for 3 pieces of silver. Charles Kakoma has plenty of PF Money now in his pocket so the defection enriched Charles Kakoma in a big way.Charles Kakoma has been baptised with:”Uubomba Mwibala Alya Mwibala “. Good luck Charles Kakoma.
