UPND burnt their own billboard so that they can put the blame on PF -Antonio Mwanza

Share

The Patriotic Front (PF) has charged that the opposition United Party for National Development(UPND) burnt their own billboard so that they can put the blame on the ruling party and that UPND is desperate and will go to any length to make the PF look bad.

Speaking when he featured on Live radio in Lusaka yesterday, PF Media Director Antonio Mwanza said that that UPND first started with the burning of their T-shirts and other party regalia and claimed it was the PF that was behind the act.

The PF Media Director has since asked Zambians to watch the UPND carefully saying they are desperate and ready to plunge civil strife just to get to statehouse.

“They are a lot of things they have been trying to do to sabotage government and to try to create a situation which becomes ungovernable,” Mr. Mwaza said.

Mr. Mwanza has charged that the PF has no time to waste burning Mr. Hakainde Sammy Hichilema’s Billboard in Mandevu where the party knows that he cannot win any vote.

He further stated that the UPND will stop at nothing and their desperate leader is now trying to create a situation so that he can be arrested in order to win sympathy votes from Zambians.

“HH is looking for sympathy votes, he will not get it because leadership is not about sympathy; Zambian people want a leader like President Lungu who will build 12,000 plus schools that he has built, Zambians need a leader like President Edgar Chagwa Lungu who will build the 39 district hospitals that he has built,” Mr. Mwanza stated.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwazza is bubbling with confidence that the PF is in a very good place where victory is guaranteed in the August 12 polls.

Mr. Mwanza explained that the party has continued to grow and is receiving hundreds and thousands of defectors from other political parties owing to the successes the PF has scored under President Lungu’s leadership.

And Mr. Mwanza says it is not a secret that Zambia just like any other country in the world is going through difficult times mainly because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s no denying that the cost of living is high and there’s also no denying that the cost of living in other countries is equally high because the economy of the world, in general, is not performing well largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ” Mr. Mwanza said.

He was however quick to state that the PF under the leadership of President Lungu is not giving a blind eye to these challenges but has put in place measures to uplift the living standards of people.

Mr. Mwanza explained that the PF in its 2021-2026 Manifesto has given birth to the economic recovery plan that government has put in place.

He also disclosed that the government has injected K10 billion to help Small Scale and Medium Scale businesses who have been accessing loans from commercial banks as well as maintaining the monetary lending rate at 8.5 percent that will make sure that the Kwacha does not go beyond the current measures.

  1. Antonio Mwanza should produce proof that PF Cardres didn’t burn the Billboards. Simply alleging that UPND Cadres burnt their own Billboards is unwise. Two weeks ago PF Cadres in Broad Day light and under Camera burnt UPND Regalia. At the PF Secretariat PF Cadres damaged Kalimanshi’s vehicle. These examples show that PF Cardres are violent and are first suspects of the Billboard Crime. As we get closer to the Election Date and as PF sense loosing the August 12 Election u can expect more violence from the Panga Family Cadres. The writing is on the wall.

  6. When insanity reigns supreme, taking responsibility for the wrongs done to others (which is a mark of political maturity) becomes very rare.

  8. Amano mambulwa. When one has no gray brain he also thinks nothing but evil. Soon citizens will decide. You burn the UPND rigallia or bill boards but you dont burn the minds of people.
    Soon you are going out you tribalists haters of peace and good will

  9. This is the new PF media chief, I dont see any sense that will be coming out of this boy Tony….we still dont know who was gassing people or burning markets up to this day no one has ever been arrested so a billboard to you guys is child’s play.

  10. “……Lungu who will build 12,000 plus schools that he has built, Zambians need a leader like President Edgar Chagwa Lungu who will build the 39 district hospitals that he has built,”

    Did lungu use his own money ?

    Or did he use borrowed money he has even failed to pay back and plunged the country into unsustainable debt ????

    Zambian Citizen, anybody can build schools and hospitals using borrowed money , ……

  11. People like this are why I would love to see the PF lose. The police say they are investigating, why make such a statement?

  12. This is NOT a Government,it is a Criminal Enterprise of a Government.A Government of Thieves,by Thieves,For Thieves.
    During your campaign,explain how you are going to repay the $20 Billion of National Debt. The debt incurred by Corruptly procured ,Over priced Chinese infrastructure Projects.
    Bwalya Ng’andu needs to be criss crossing the nation explaining his Economic Master Plan ,instead he is largely silent,gone AWOL,totally overwhelmed by the extent of the Corruption & Economic mess he has found at Ministry of Finance.
    $20 Billion of Debt that’s Edgar Lungu’s legacy.

    Antonio Mwanza ,it’s all about the Economy Stupid.

  13. Stealing, visionless, tribalism, gassing, burning markets and Lying is what makes you look bad not UPND!!

  14. Its unfortunate that Mr. Antonio Mwanza is down playing the pulling and burning down of the billboard for HH and poor performance of the economy and comparing to the whole world. What message is there in the PF manifesto which inspiring other than just leading this country deep in more problems. The current PF team will not inspire and bring hope to Zambians, ten years was enough time to take this country forward and there is need to change the way things have been done. Mwanza can say anything not sensible because he has to eat with both hands as time is running out fast. This statement from Mwanza is very empty, its a sign he has run out of ideas. Its like everything was centered around Sunday Chanda and I see the PF media team under performing.

  15. Strategy is about knowing when it’s right to say something and when to keep quiet

    Antonio Mwanza focus on your household !!

    If its true… UPND burnt their own advertising bill board, then they have disadvantaged and shot themselves on the legs. UPND will gain nothing from such a move.

    The Zambian people are just busy running their lives to worry about who burnt a billboard. That said it is a crime to burn a billboard.

  16. The tribal party is at it again. Last time they damaged their own cars and claimed it was pf behind it. Very classless bunch. Where is my clone? Clone you are sleeping. You cannot afford to not comment on a headline. I can’t rely on your my clone tarino

  17. 12,000 schools and 39 clinics. thousands of teachers unemployed doctors and medical staff not paid, no medicines in hospitals and clinics. deathly and expired medicines, projects built with borrowed money which the tax payers will be paying for generations and sub standard heavily inflated. and we have a rocket scientist is talking out his rear end. there should be a law to stop these sort of utterances. i could have have used my right to free speech to tell this buf**n that what he is saying smells like excrement but then ati cyber bulling.

  18. Throwing Hichilema out of the election is the only solution for this. We must ensure that HH’s evil agenda get shatter like his political career.

  19. It is true HH and his team can go to any level to make a bad picture of PF so that he can get votes from Zambians.

  20. No government will create violence in his own country because it is answerable to everyone. The main duty of the government is to maintain peace. But, Hichilema provokes youths, involved UPND cadres and creates a violent atmosphere, and blames it on PF.

  21. Yes, we have seen growth in Zambia under the leadership of President Lungu. What HH did so far for us??

  22. Shame that still there are people who blindly follow HH even after knowing his dirty criminal record.

  23. President Lungu and his government committed to uplift the living standard of Zambians. Then why entertain #Bally.

  24. Pathetic comic this man is. If you have evidence for such allegations, why not give it to the Police? Being a propagandist mouth piece for the ruling Party doesn’t mean you have to go to such ridiculous childish levels. This is the calibre of the characters in power.

    The purchased Police also always claim to be ‘investigating’ and then you hear nothing as usual. Broken processes, compromised state wings and a self-aggrandising group of wolves calling themselves leaders – that’s what we have ended with in this resource rich country but with mostly a huge marginalised sector of the population.
