President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and His PF: A Monstrous Mistake to Correct in August.

Columns President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and His PF: A Monstrous Mistake to Correct...

By W. E. Kamirichiki, PhD.

In August—barely four months away, Zambians must try correcting a very gargantuan mistake we committed and tried to correct in the last presidential election cycle. We must vote out PF and President Lungu in order to keep and preserve this republic.

It is a complex affair trying to figure out what makes some voting Zambians—most, economically desperate—think that the Patriotic Front party should continue governing this country, or what would make them turn to someone like President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to keep ruining it.

There is no doubt that Zambia faces social and economic problems—and yes, some challenges pre-date President Lungu. To turn a corner from what is likely going to be the ugliest election in modern Zambian history, we must make Zambia fashionable for politics again by voting out the most criminal party ever to hold our presidency .

Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the worst political and ruling-party candidate for president in Zambian history. This is not a close call. By virtually any measure, he is unfit to lead anything. He failed to lead and set a law firm as a going concern. He drew the professional ire of the law association of Zambia (LAZ) for theft of a client’s money. As a result, LAZ suspended his law licence in 2010. How then, did we not see this character would be carried over into the presidency? It was. Look where we are as a republic.

It is worth going back and reading the transcripts of his press conferences just to stitch his lucidness when he is answering questions off the cuff. It is breath-robbing how incapable he is of forming a single articulable vision for our country. Most of us have had low expectations for him. We have found nothing worth to analyse in his comportment over nearly six and half years of his chequered presidency. There is nothing seismic about his flawed governance record except his failure and that of his PF party to enhance the presidency. The “humble” man of Chawama meanders in thought and purpose and so he lets his press handler do all the press relations bit because he toddles, and occasionally whines about the opposition when he fails in his work. He is uninformed and unprepared to tackle the issues of governance. He has failed to grow into it because he failed to nurture method, reflection and foresightedness expected of a lawyer would-be president.

He fumbles, constantly, about everything. And he either has failed to control the criminality of his supporters or that he stokes their anger, fear and even violence among them. He nurtures their very worst instincts by ignoring their worst criminal instincts. His mis (un) informed followers brag he is “humble”. That is nonsense. He has lashed out and conspired by concocting bogus claims against the opposition, most frequently the leader of the UPND, HH, and anyone his cadres think is insulting President Lungu.

These nearly six years have helped us understand how deep a disaster Mr. Edgar Lungu’s presidency has been. There is no limit to the potential for unending horror he can wrought upon our country. Think of how much he has been a failed president – how he has not released a report of inquiry about our gassed brothers and sisters, how much unsustainable debt he has saddled upon our grandchildren and their great grandchildren, and how much he has flexed the judiciary to his power-hungry insatiable ends. And how reckless he has been in firing professional career civil servants doing their jobs under the very burden of ill-managed political pressures. And how he has stuffed PF-morons as staff into critical institutional infrastructure of our republic.

By voting out PF and President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, we cease to imagine scandals. We are spared the stench of corruption, and the national embarrassment of a clueless man that would keep brewing if we extended his rule of ruin. Consider how leaf-thin his policy knowledge is and how impulsively he reacts to his political rivals and righteous constructive criticism of PF. Imagine the potential exponential growth of political violence and cadre criminality if we buy into that hollow PF manifesto without a moral foundation.

President Edgar Lungu should not be re-elected to succeed himself as president of Zambia because he should not have been allowed to ascend to that office in the first place. He was our monstrous and regrettable mistake we must now correct for Zambia’s posterity.

As patriotic citizen of this country, we should not let President Lungu yet again be a train driver of a criminal wagon of PF party carders. To refresh our country, our ousting of the PF party for another political party would in effect be a referendum against every word of PF lies, no matter how outlandish and easily disproven. There are some people, even at this defining period, who are torn about whether they should support him or protract his presidency. Maybe they are a small yet important segment of our ill and mis-informed brothers and sisters who have been fed lies about the opposition, especially HH, about what he would do in the Zambian presidency.

Maybe they are a regrettable crowd who hear bogus and unpatriotic stories about “how a Tonga should not rule our country”. The last nearly six and half years have proven that HH is not what these misinformed sect thinks and has, to most rational Zambians, erased those unfounded fears. Foresighted Zambians now see that everyone in the opposition from UPND or HH have genuine resentment and fears about PF judgment, and the future of our republic. The PF mindless political terrorists are on the loose, but the August vote is the chance to stop Zambians from murdering Zambians. Presently, it is dangerous to be a civil servant and have opposition-leaning ideology. But we surely should and will shame the loosing PF party by celebrating PF-leaning civil servants who love their country by serving in the incoming opposition government.

But now is the moment for every last Zambian to decide what it truly means to be a citizen of this great Southern Africa Eagle republic. You can be reluctant about UPND or Hakainde Hichilema. You do not even have to vote for him (though I will, without doubt or hesitation even if “he is Tonga” according to the tribalist narrative of unpatriotic small and primitive political minds ). I will vote for him, because even at his worst, UPND or HH or any serious opposition president is still better than President Edgar Lungu at his supporter’s overrated best). In fact, most of PF’s rivals are teachable, can be fast learners and have a solid character to be potentially great leaders or ruling parties.

What you cannot do—and I wish I could add, what you must not do—is to vote for PF and Edgar Lungu and pretend that this is just another election, and he or the PF has a possibility of re-tracking back to good governance. It is your minimum duty as a citizen not to support a clueless, and unqualified leader of a mostly purposeless and corrupt party, who has in his “humble” nature done everything in his cluelessness to allow ugly transient vulture instincts to ruin Zambia. There is nothing in the horizon that can assuage our faith about an individual who received more than six test years to try the presidency, and mostly failed.

No matter how left out or left behind you assume you could be under the UPND Presidency, voting for President Edgar Lungu is nothing short of a colossal moral failure. It is a vicious act against our posterity and our great grandchildren, and for many others who would suffer miserably under his continuing presidency.

It is an act of violence and betrayal against Zambia itself, whose re-known has always been about an island of political tranquillity and warm people progressing from social and economic hardships and brotherhood , sometimes frustratingly slowly, but forward.

The promise of those hollow PF slogans by its fist-clenched carders who are more of criminals than civilized citizen is to dig our republic deeper into an economic debt doldrum, and possibly, even U-turn us back into the opposite direction of colonial ownership. The clenched fist they sell is snake oil of empty rhetoric. It is a constant reminder to the rest of us how they have plundered our country, hidden ill-gotten wealth, and mastered violence with a symbolic tight fist no one will unclench. It is a lie. We must bury PF this August to reclaim our country for our children, and somehow, even help save PF from PF.

Election mistakes from 2016 are proof we took and tried our chance. It turned out to be a big triple mistake: PF under Lungu, the presidency under PF and Zambia under PF. Yes, everything has mostly gone under. We have found the whole PF architecture to be spectacularly wanting. Now, if we are to progress, we must correct this monstrous triple mistake by ushering in a PF-less and a Lungu-free Zambian government. My people, the voting month and hour cometh!

  1. Their hope of holding on to power even when the rule of law and the economy is in mess is that they have built clinics and roads in rural areas and they strongly believe that is the only thing that matters for the rural dwellers to cast a vote for them, the economy and rule of law is non of their business, but they forget that the same rural dwellers will use the expensive fuel to travel on those roads to go and buy expensive agricultural commodities in town, their logic is so illogical.

  2. After August 12, you will have found that you wasted a lot of time and energy penning in this long and misguided article. The disrespect to voters is what motivates people to keep voting for ECL and PF.

  3. Given chance to choose between the 2 evils I’d opt for Edgar and PF because HH and UPND are far much worse. It’s very unfortunate that the PF have elected to give a very weak candidate who isn’t even eligible. Why risk the whole Party for the sake of 1 person. From the look of things our next President might be a woman, especially if John Sangwa succeeds. So let’s wait and see

  4. Kamirichiki, Please leave us out of your frustrations. Do not impose your privatization thief on us. Every Zambian will make up his or her own mind who they will vote for. Do not demonize those that will vote for ECL and PF, the will just be enjoying their democratic rights. People that will vote for ECL, maybe they have seen the roads, bridges, clinics, schools being constructed in their areas. Something you have failed to mention in your ranting. Maybe people want farming inputs. The civil servants you are trying to use for HH are experiencing the best working conditions in the history of Zambia. During UNIPs and Chiluba’s time, civil servants were paid very little and could go three months without pay. They were hardly paid on time. Today most civil servants own houses and cars. Spare…

  5. The writer of this Article should be commended. Those with ears can hear. If Zambians don’t heed what they have been told by this learned Writer it is their fault and will regret it when they suffer more after August 12 Elections. It’s impossible for ECL and PF to change their ways after 61/2 years in Power. Unless Zambians want to continue suffering August 12 presents a Golden Opportunity to change these PF Diapers. ECL and PF must be sent “ku wire” forever. Rigging or no Rigging Corrupt and Visionless ECL and his PF thugs must be voted out without fail.The writing is on the wall.

  6. Citizens deserve the leaders they get. We put G12 holder as minimum education requirement to aspire for public office but we forgot to put minimum education requirements for the voter.
    The vote of the uneducated should not be the same or equivalent to that of educated critical minds!
    If you think education is expensive, try ignorance and illiteracy!

  7. And there lies the problem. Instead of convincing people with alternative policies, social-economic ideas etc, it’s personal and hate filled attacks since 2016. That’s why Kakoma and others are leaving. What a [email protected] article. It’s like 2 men after a girl-one goes to flatter and chaff the girl, takes presents and all (PF). The other goes to ask about man 1 and disparages him that he’s a thief and liar (upnd). It’s your guess who wins the girl….

  8. This is a very Powerful, Objective and Professional analysis of the Zambian situation. It will certainly be a monstrous mistake to vote for failing ECL and PF. Things are bad right now but a return to Power by ECL and PF in 2021 will be the worst thing for Zambians. They will pay the price when the suffering escalates with ECL at the Helm. Zambians will be committing Economic and Financial suicide if they let this happen for the Third Time. Time will tell.

  9. How do we convince the voters to vote differently this time around? That is the question. We can write all we want, at the end of the day democracy says whoever gets the prescribed numbers more than other competitors wins and carries the day. Democracy is different from a pure dictatorship.

    Unless we can convince prospective electorates, all our expositions, essays or treatise are at the end of the day but academic and great theories.

    Perhaps a bit of what MMD had that swang voters from UNIP to MMD and a bit of what PF had that swang the electorates from MMD to PF will help this time to get a different party to govern us.

  11. @Spaka-it’s not about disputing the article. It’s about the millions of Zambians from all walks of life who will determine who carries the day. The article above works for you diasporans who don’t even vote. But a marketeer in Chiengi who has seen a district (level 1) hospital for the first time in their life will not be convinced by the useless article above, let alone read it! So the dingbat who has been campaigning on social media is in for another shock as PF and Charles Kakoma hit the ground in North Western…..

  12. Watch “Civil Servants must be Protected from Cadres but…….” on YouTube
    One of the reasons others should be given a chance to improve our standard of living is, they have literally turned a strategic institution like ZESCO into a cash cow. They failed to explain why ZESCO needed to acquire a €1.7 billion loan, which remains suspicious.

  13. When you say Zambians made a mistake to vote for PF, just be honest to yourself. Did you vote for PF? From the look of things you’re a opposition from as far as 2011 and how can you say you made mistake. We are ok with PF and we will keep on voting for them.
    Zambians must try correcting a very gargantuan mistake we committed and tried to correct in the last presidential election cycle. We must vote out PF and President Lungu in order to keep and preserve this republic.
    You are lost in your own way.

  14. This Article is Powerful and articulate. All right thinking Zambians should vote for a change of Govt on August 12. Another 5 years of the ruinous ECL and PF will collapse the Zambian Economy. Civil Servants and Public Workers have seen how that innocent lady at Ministry of Works was harrassed and was instantly dismissed by the PF Cadres and thugs. What happened to this lady can happen to you.Did people notice that the SG and President of PF remained silent on this violation of Human Rights. Silence means Consent. Which means that should ECL and PF retain Power u can expect more harassment from these unruly PF Cadres and thugs. Come August 12 Zambians must stop this lawlessness by voting out ECL and his PF thugs. We must vote for HH and UPND for a change. The writing is on the wall.

Let me warn this boy that if he ever step foot in Zambia he will know who his maker is. I will sort this boy out

    Elo I have woken up with a bad hangover and an annoyed wlfe. Today am not in the mood for f00lish comments from upnd diasporans. Do not mention my name today at all.!!

  16. Upnd will never rule this country because they said only a tonga can rule them. Zambia has many more tribes than just Tongas so how can you expect to win? Continue wasting your time and lives putting your hope in a f00l like hh who knows he will never rule.

  17. You can say all you can. But it’s highly improbable, doubtful, the genuine electorate is willing to change government.
    There are several cracks currently in UPND than the united PF who are more resolute than they were in 2016. Hate and hurt directed at PF is what we daily see from these UPND cadres, but it will lead them nowhere. Keep wishing!

  21. @Zambian Citizen. Are u saying the woman who has seen a District Hospital for the first time doesn’t feel the high and unaffordable prices? Of what use is that Hospital if it has no medicine? What if that Woman is the Mother of Nsama Nsama who was murdered in cold blood by ZPS? What if that Woman is the Mother of the lady at the Ministry of Works who was threatened by PF Cadres? What if that Woman had her Son gassed? People don’t eat infrastructure ;they want Food on the Table,Money to buy necessities, they want Good Governance, Rule of Law, Respect for the Constitution and Human Rights. There are so many reasons not to vote for Corrupt and Visionless ECL and the Ruinous PF Party. People should give HH and UPND A chance to Govern and turnaround this Economy .

  22. Talking about Chawama Township misses the point as it is just intended to dent the image of its residents. Secondly, mentioning the LAZ case is intended to embarrass litigants rather than to seek justice for all. Unless conviction is secured in a recognized court of law, allegations of corruption remain malicious political propaganda intended to tarnish the image of the accused. The country needs to fight against poverty. There is need for infrastructure to facilitate employment creation in the country. Today ECL is our elected president as Zambian people. Let us be fair and compare political manifestoes and choose the best one. What counts is ability to win votes through the PF political party platform. Take time to undermine elected leaders. Take time to undermine ECL. Take time…

  24. UPND was formed in 1998. It is still stagnant and never grows. That is why is still in opposition because it’s not progressive.
    Three years younger than UPND, the Patriotic Front was born. From 2001, it has cruised past the stagnant party to form government 10 years later.
    Kamirichik, are you telling us Zambians have been making a mistake for 23 years? Impossible. This is a foul insult insult to Zambians. UPND and HH are merely not saleable, valueless, unelectable, meaningless.

  25. This Article is very Powerful. We need a strong Rebuttal from Drs Sunday Chanda,Isaac Mwanza, Antonia Mwanza etc. KZ is rather upset. Why didn’t he rig the Article b4 Publication? The truth hurts. We hope most Zambians concerned about their future will read this highly informative Article and come August 12 vote wisely. Thank u Dr Kamirichiki for the wonderful Article.

  26. The question is:  Why has HH been beaten by Mwanawasa, Banda, Sata, Lungu.

    When every team you play with in any “Sports League”  beats you, it means you are failing to perform and live up to your expectation.

    Rather you deserve to be dropped to a lower division. And you cannot blame the your fans or your opponents.

    HH has never connected with Zambians. If you take away Southern Province, you will see the end of UPND.

    The truth is that the people of Southern Province have started losing faith and patience in HH.

    “Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the worst political and ruling-party candidate for president in Zambian history.”
    “Consider how leaf-thin his policy knowledge is and how impulsively he reacts to his political rivals and righteous constructive criticism of PF”

  34. True if PF can win an election in a free and fair environment there would be no need to unleash unexplained party monies and gifts tithe electorates; not a need to victmise any area or region fir having divergent views. We need each other,a party in govt as well as a formidable opposition. No need for name calling any individuals

  35. I was wondering who this author is until I did a search and found his previous LT articles where he stated who he was. Dr. W.E. Kamirichiki is a political, social, and environmental affairs commentator, based in Lusaka. The article is spot on about Lazy Lungu and his goons but the author gets carried away when he states who he will vote for

  36. Fellow Zambian’s, the stakes are high we can’t miss an opportunity to clean up the stable and induce political hygiene.
    When Boris Johnson was told last week that senior civil servants during David Cameron’s premiership were allowed to take on second jobs with the private sector finance firm Greensill Capital — the same firm for which Cameron has now been caught lobbying — even the prime minister who likes to shock was taken aback.
    I’m told he was incredulous, declaring: “How could this be allowed to happen?” He has spent the week telling people: “We’ve got to clean the Augean stables.” Johnson has ordered an inquiry, one of half a dozen now under way into a crisis spreading like knotweed through SW1.

  37. Of course the f00lish Tonga boy tarino will agree with any article written by his fellow tribal dogs against our president. Your Tonga boy hh will never rule. Read this slowly, takatekepo

  40. @Ndine. U are Right. If ECL could win free,fair and credible Elections he wouldn’t be printing and dishing out huge amounts of money to buy votes from Chiefs,Headmen, Churches etc. ECL and PF cannot win a free,fair and credible Election and hence they are desperate to rig the Elections by any means. Thats why ECL and PF Surrogates are bent on removing HH’s Name from the Ballot Paper by Hook or Crook. HH is an Asset to Zambia while ECL and PF are liabilities to Zambia.

  41. Very hard hitting ,deeply piercing article on the evils,shortcomings and blunders of this PF gov’t .Zambia is in a hole so in August we should stop the digging.

  42. Zambians must realise that ECL and PF have proved that they have no Capacity and Competencies to turnaround this Economy. ECL is like a Cancerous Tumor in the Zambian Body Politic which will spread unless if it is cut off. August 12 presents a Golden Opportunity to do a surgical operation to cut off the Cancerous Tumor thru the Ballot Box. If ECL and PF are not sent “ku wire ” August 13,2021 and beyond will become a nightmare for Zambia. If ECL steals a Third Term and the August 12 Elections an illegitimate ECL Govt in Zambia is inevitable. Just like in Uganda recently mandatory Sanctions will be imposed on Zambia following a Violent, rigged and disputed Election. The writing is on the wall.

  43. This Thorn in the A$£ – So what do you want him to write about? Let me guess…maybe the inflated infrastructure development Lazy Lungu’s govt cant even manage to repay, borrowed $25 billion+ cant even afford to repay $42 million coupon…really laughable.

  44. The article gives room for every individual to assess for themselves where they could be at variance with the author’s opinion as it tries to draw perceived reasons for line of thought! Zambians are one lot that love to hate themselves starting at individual level and moving upwards! Politics is taken for survival means for a few and to the elected representatives it’s a game of winners and losers, the score brings no trophies! For self down grading, Zambians’ expectations of those they elect are too low that for most what is currently being experienced is accepted as generously beyond what every citizen deserves! The country has moved in a direction generally opposite from where the colonialists handed over into a state of dilapidation and deconstruction for all the touted…

  45. I will get this guy called Kaizar Zulu’s name and email and post it here. Not that I know him, but skills will. If he is the real Kaizar Zulu or some tribalist in the UK or anywhere else. It is coming out soon. WATCH THIS SPACE. You will soon know who this tribalist is.

  46. Does anyone want to know who the tribalist with the pseudonym Kaizar Zulu is? I can get it through his posts, email, IP address and location of his posts. I don’t like his tribal tone and I am ready to expose this f00l to the world and his family if they are human and respect others regardless of tribe. I will do it. I am tired of his tribal tone.

  47. We in the diaspora may not vote but we feel the effect of the collapsed economy when every month money is electroncally transferred to our relatives. We are relying on our relatives and friends to do the right thing,VOTE FOR UPND and chuck out these corrupt pf criminals.

  48. Malabish! this article is exactly the wrong direction this country is heading. You are character assassinating one candidate only to usher in more of the same. Why don’t you evaluate all the candidates and let the Zambian people choose? I could equally say VOTE UNIP, power mulilo because the candidate is new and aligned to what I believe in, the rest are recycled politicians with no values or principles. How does one chuck out criminals by voting UPND when the same UPND is dancing with the same criminals? The devil you know is better than the one you don’t know.

  49. What we need right now is detailed scrutiny of all the candidates applying for the top job. We the people of Zambia should say enough is enough. This is our time to set the record straight with these thieving politicians. We need to expose all the suspected criminals, profile them and put a big red warning sign against their names. Let us retire these crooks once and for all. Imagine an aspiring candidate boasting that they have 70 stolen properties when ordinary citizens struggle to own a single plot which they are entitled to by simply being a citizen.
