Mubita Nawa Demonstrates How UPND is Rich in Insults Yet Bankrupt on Alternatives

Columns Mubita Nawa Demonstrates How UPND is Rich in Insults Yet Bankrupt on...

By Sunday Chilufya Chanda

We take great exception to Mr. Hakainde Hichilema’s UPND appointee Mr. Mubita Nawa’s crass shenanigans on a video where he is clearly seen gleefully enjoying and encouraging a UPND cadre’s insults targeted at the President of the Republic of Zambia Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

While it is bad enough to insult even a child, it is an abomination for Mr. Nawa to abet insults of a person old enough to be his biological father. It is even a greater abomination beyond words, when the target of the insults besides being old enough to be Nawa’s father, is the Head of State. Sheer abomination! Ala Mupamba! Ni maloza! (Abomination!).

What is even more sickening is that Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, in his defiant response in a terse social media statement, describes Mubita Nawa’s vulgarities and insults directed at the Head of State as that of a “model citizen”. Mr. Hichilema’s defiant defence of his “presidential aide” clearly demonstrates how Nawa’s crassness has Mr. Hichilema’s full blessing.

We wish to remind Messrs Hichilema and Nawa that the Presidency is a venerable institution enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Zambia.

Let me remind my brother Mr Nawa as follows: Section 69 of the Penal Code provides:

“any person who, with intent to bring the President into hatred, ridicule or contempt, publishes any defamatory or insulting matter, whether by writing, print, word of mouth or in any other manner, is guilty of an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a period not exceeding three years.”_

Rather than frantically trying to spin it or deflect it, Mr. Nawa must show remorse by apologising to the President and the people of the Republic of Zambia. The more he tries to cosmetically cover it up with misplaced banter, word play and semantics, the more his boil of insults festers and the more the pus of his indecency is exposed.
It is a tragedy how insults have defined the UPND culture and character both on-line and offline. It just goes to show how Mr. Hichilema and his party of “insultants” are so bankrupt on alternatives, that they can do nothing but hone their vulgarity on innocent others.

It is disturbing that Messrs Hichilema, Nawa and Co. think that they can insult their way into State House. The majority of voters in Zambia love the Head of State and are pro-PF. They have not forgotten how Mr. Hichilema insulted them just because they support the development agenda of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
When will UPND ever learn? Their vulgarity and insults are anathema.

Mr. Hichilema and his ilk should learn to disagree without being personally disagreeable. We therefore challenge the Opposition UPND to meet us at the arena of development, the arena of alternative policies, not insults.

  1. The worst opposition on the Zambian political scene is that headed by a clueless Hakainde Hichilema. We mourn the late co-founder of UPND Mazoka. Who was truly a nationalist Zambian. We all have our tribes of origin but when you put your tribe and ego above national issues or as the pillar of your political party that is the last time you cease to get the support of the majority. Kambela Mazoka embraced all tribes going by the composition of senior lieutenants in his political party then. But ba HH kuwayawaya fye on the road that leads to no where.

  2. Upnd is a party for f00lish tribal ignorant bab00ns. If your mother or father supports upnd then know that there is a chance you are a bab00n. A very ugly one for that matter.

  3. HAHA YOU ARE CLOWNS, PERCEIVED INSULTS ARE NOW WORSE THAN PF LYNCHING, HONEYBEE GENOCIDE … WARRANTING AN ARREST. THE OTHER DAY AN OPPOSITION LEADER COUGHED, IT WAS ARREST, ARREST, ARREST.

  4. So this guy did not hear the insults the pf thugs were hurling at the party secretariat when they were pummelling the amelican innnocent.

  5. Sunday Chanda trying to shift attention from the PF intraparty barbarism and violence that was displayed at their recent Welcome Kambwili party and from incident where a group of PF thugs seized UPND campaign material and burnt it while uttering murderous threats and insults. I would say you would get tired of deflecting but your kind lacks the decency to tire of hypocrisy and hate. By the way, Mubita rightfully, unreservedly apologised when this incident happened and again now. He also stated that he is ready to avail the police with the unedited video. That is leadership!!

  6. Nawa you were caught pants down even your ‘boss’ as you call him in your video does not sink that law and use such vulgar language….the best you can do is self reflect…one day your ‘boss’ might be in power I hope those insults and your fake amelican accent isnt ‘gonna’ haunt you in future..failed demotivational speaker……

  7. UPND has lost all the moral right to lecture others. It is high time that Hakainde Hichilema got rid of such people who are digging his grave. The party is full of such antisocial elements.

  8. If this is how they respect the elders, then one is forced to think how they would be treating their junior colleagues in the party and other members in the family. No wonder, people are quitting UPND to join PF.

  9. There is no doubt that these people are operating at the behest of Hakainde Hichilema. They know that he will shield them whatever they do. We have the example of Chellah Tukuta, the certified criminal who is HH’s personal and official photographer.

  10. What Mubita C Nawa did is the reality of his character. No matter how much he tries to conceal it and project himself as a thinker and motivational speaker, the inner core is so dirty. This is the story of every UPND leader and this is the only qualification one has to possess to go in close circle of Hakainde Hichilema.

  11. What else can one expect when the leader himself is a tribalist? Today UPND stands completely exposed. Good that it happened before elections.

  12. If such is the presidential aide, then imagine how the president would be! We can get glimpse of how Hakainde Hichilema and his gang thinks. They are gangrene of the society and need to cut to size, as soon as possible.

  13. This is the same man who is facing trials for cheating and forgery. Mubita C Nawa and Anthony Bwalya were arrested for forging NRC and voter card. Such is their mentality. What else can one expect from them?

  14. Nawa should be arrested immediately and put behind the bars. There should be no leniency. What he has done is seroous crime and needs equally serious punishment.

  15. This is the desperation to come to power by hook or by crook. They are ready to stoop to any low in the desperation. But nothing will help them now. UPND has crossed all the limits now.

  16. Did this chap just make a statement about insults and forgot to mention Ba Mulenga who used insults? What a waste of time!

  17. Henry Mulosa, Chitunga, Sam Chirwa, Kaysee, robbie harvard, Doreen Chisinga, Timba, Mundia Lubinda, mavis Ngosa, Paul Kaseka Which name are you going to use to vote because it’s one man one vote. Not the rigging you are trying to rehearse here.

  18. But the Home Affairs Minister and his gang set an example – “Natuka chita ka cikala…kalemona kwati ni ka President nako. In fact Ba (kakoma) Kankanja is very weak if I didn’t direct him upto now that ka cikala would still be enjoying the comfort of his house,” Kaiser Zulu was heard bragging before Kampyongo interjected,

  19. BA PF IF YOU WANT TO ARREST PEOPLE PLEASE ANALYSE AN AND LOOK AT ALL ANGLES WITH WISDOM. HOW MANY INSULTS HH HAS RECEIVED FROM PF LUNATICS AND MAD GUNG? CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI NAMED THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE IS AN ” ICHISUSHI” WHY HAVE YOU NOT ARRESTED HIM?

    PLEASE LET US RESPECT ONE ANOTHER AND AM NOT DEFENDING UPND OR WHO, BUT TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE FIRST ARREST CHISHIMBA KAMBWILI WHOSE IS IN PUBLIC DOMAIN WHO HAS REDUCED THE PRESIDENT TO NOTHING. MORE OVER ARRESTING THE NAWA WONT CHANGE ANYTHING BUT WILL HELP UPND TO CAMPAIGN WELL. JUST CAUSION THE PF WHO ARE FOND OF INSULTING EACH OTHER AND EVEN POURING INSULTS ON THE OPPOSITION.

  20. Zambia is said to be a christian nation why should the party in power give so much powers to to a CARDER. Police when UPND come in power you shall be respected.Wait and see what will happen after dissolving the Parliament. There will be EXODUS people moving from PF to UPND You are most welcome brothers and sisters
