I will never avenge the injustice meted on me by some individuals in this PF regime

Columns I will never avenge the injustice meted on me by some...

By Fred M’membe President of the Socialist Party

Several times, I have been asked if I will avenge the injustice meted on me by some individuals in this regime. My response has been a categorical No. But the question keeps on coming up. Why? Is there fear of vengeance? From who against who? And for what? To achieve what?
Let me make it very, very, very clear: there’s no place for injustice in the mind of a revolutionary, no place at all. There’s no place for vengeance in the heart of a revolutionary. You can be very firm in the struggle, but you can’t do it out of hatred.

We are teaching our members ideas of justice; otherwise, our struggle for a more just, fair and humane Zambia is going nowhere. It is only upon such ideas that a more just, fair and humane society can be achieved and sustained. This can only be achieved based on principles, ideas and ethics. It’s the only way.

We believe in people, in human beings, in their capacity to forge ethics, a consciousness, in their capacity for great sacrifices.
In the course of history, we have seen people die for honour, for values they can understand. Someone instilled them with these values. Let the best human values of justice, fairness and humane ness be instilled in our people.

And our intellectuals can play a very important role in this today, because only people with a certain intellectual development can instill fear in heads of those who conspire and work against justice, fairness and humane ness.

We are convinced that a fascist-like regime will never be established, in any lasting fashion, in our country because our people have traditions, ethics and values that will prevent this. That is why those who want to impose a tinpot dictator and a third term on our people have to resort to lies.

We consider ourselves fortunate for having understood that hatred and prejudice are not political weapons. We have political weapons and, in addition to this, experience has taught us that principles are the best possible political weapons.

  1. You’re not infallible, you also have a load of injustices you influenced against others in your prime. You misled many on FTJ and RB. When will you repay the DBZ loan? I hope you have confessed your sins and repented. Many of us can’t entrust you with power because of your conduct at The Post, it’ll take time to come to terms with that

  2. All the injustices and brutality the lungu regime has bestowed on fellow citizens should be paid in kind……….

    We expect them to feel the same pain they have inflicted , and continue to inflicte on others…..

    Only then will future leaders learn to respect the rule of law and the tenets of democracy, after seeing what happens to abusers in power , after they leave power.,…….

    “If South Africans ever avenged, nothing meaningful would have been left to talk about. Do you remember the national reconciliation? It was meant to let RSA start afresh.”

    SA is different , there is no chance of the whites ever coming back to power , while in zambia if an example is not made of lungu and his gang , the abuses meted out on citizens will be seen as normal as PF has every possibility of returning to power if they are ejected…….

    • Ha! Stop cheating yourselves, The whites in South Africa are in power. Blacks may have taken over the union buildings but the entire economy is in white people’s hands. If you are black you can only benefit from tenders with the black government and that means you have to be an ANC cadre but the white owned businesses still contract fellow whites and if they have to contract you it is on very low apartheid era rates

  7. The Patriotic Front promised to hit back at Ruphia Bwezani Banda (RB). He got what he deserved from the vengeful PF. Who came to his aid? It was the unlikely person: Hakainde Hichilema and UPND fought tooth and nail to rescue RB from PF harassment. assumedly. PF later reconciled with RB and dropped all charges. Today RB is a free person, retired with full benefits. UPND keeps saying they will prosecute Edgar Lungu when he leaves power. My foot!
    Chiluba’s court cases consumed more than what got recovered, if any. Dr. Fred Mmembe understands this. He seems to be a convert to me. A changed man.

  8. No one was; or is  after you. That’s just illusions you have in your head. It’s now sickness.

    The only thing the Zambian Law did to you;  was to ask you pay the $27m you owed Zambia in taxes

    You dare-deviled Zambians to touch by giving excuses “time” after “time”.

    But the same “time”  came and caught up with you. Its called life.  You reap what you plant.

  9. It looks like LT has lost the audience. So many posts are censored and do not appear but Kaizar Zulu’s insults and hate speech never fail to show up. Has LT been taken over by PF?

  13. Ayatollah, your name speaks of your tribalistic mindset of middle eastern religion. FJT was evil, a vengeful tumlog dictator, an aspirant of third term. He tried to finish off the most successful businessman Dr. Mahtani, just because FJT and her useless ministercEdith Nawakwi could not get the cut from Carlington maize. Your RB was vindictive drunkard Casanova president. He also tried to destroy Dr. Mahtani, sold his bank for a packet of peanut. You better shuru lest I spill beans o two useless lampoons you portrayed as saints.

  14. This man had always been jealousy of HH and that’s why he supported PF. I could never, for the life of me understand, why a seemingly intelligent man couldn’t see that the PF regime wasn’t good.

    He would say that it was common practice for any newspaper to give its weight to a political party of its choice and in this instance gave the example of the Sun Newspaper in the UK that supported a particular party.

    He justified this by saying that HH lacked charisma even when he (Fred) pointed out that HH was the best candidate by far.

    And so here we are and what a mess we are in as a country.

  15. SITUATIONS ARE NOT STATIC, ITS MIND REFRESHING THAT COMRADE FRED HAS SOBERED UP AND REGARDING HIMSELF AS A REVOLUTIONERY SENT TO CHNAGE THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE OF ZAMBIA. I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS THE SAME MAN WHO OPENED UP SO MANY WAR FORNTS WITH THOSE HE PERCEIVED ENEMIES TO HIS AMBITIONS WHEN HE WAS AT HELM OF THE DEFUNCT “POST”. THIS IS THE MAN WHO IMMERSILY CONTRIBUTED SO MUCH TO MAKE SATA GRAB POWER FROM RB. HE INFLUED MANY APPOINTMENTS IN GOVT AND WOUD HAVE INFORMATION FROM GOVT INSTITUTIONS BEFORE ZANIS GOT IT. I DOUBT VERY MUCH IF SOCIALIST PARTY WILL EVER MAKE SRIOUS IN ROADS IN ZAMBIAN POLITICS DURING MY LIFE TIME. I OFTEN LISTEN TO DR. MUSUMALI MAKE POLITICAL STATEMENTS WHICH SOUND GOOD BUT FAR FROM ATTRACTING THE ATTENTION OF THE MASSES ITS LIKE ONE SINGING TO HIMSELF…

  16. Freddie ss president of socialist republic of Bembaland. Freddie hang in there. Divide bemba votes of Lungu. As a gratitude we HH will give you back the Post and lock up Chikwanda who brought wreck to Zambian economy.

  17. Koma His Royal Highness Mmembe is a dreamer!
    Several times, I have been asked if I will avenge the injustice meted on me by some individuals in this regime.
    How can he avenge when he has no power. He has no capacity to mete out vengeance on anyone but he wants us to think he is in power

  18. “I will never avenge the injustice meted on me by some individuals in this PF regime”
    UNIP and the MMD should avenge the injustice meted on them by some individual called Mmembe and his Post Newspaper.

  19. Sir kindly come to terms that no injustice has been meted against you. The only thing Government did was to claim for 27 Million Dollars in taxes. Let us not forget where we coming from. Life always catches up with us even if we waive for some time.

  20. “A pity I will never never avenge the injustice meted on me by some individuals in this PF regime”
