It’s shocking that HH had double Masks and Gloves while his supporters had none-Given Lubinda

Share

Patriotic Front Member of the Central Committee Hon Given Lubinda has bemoaned the lack of adherence to health guidelines by the Opposition UPND that ferried their supporters to Lusaka when their leader was filling in nominations.

Hon Lubinda said the opposition UPND did not follow Covid 19 guidelines thereby putting their supporters in danger of contracting and spreading the virus.

“What is more frustrating is that people had no masks but he had double masks and gloves. If you are a leader, you are supposed to be the first one to suffer,” he said.

He said unlike Mr. Hichilema, President Lungu cares about the welfare of Zambians hence he only invited a few people to accompany him to the nomination center.
And Hon Lubinda said the party will come up with a new strategy of reaching out to people in respect of the Covid 19 health guidelines.

The former Kabwata MP and Justice Minister stated that the Party’s Secretary-General Hon. Davies Mwila has emphasized the need to respect the decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to ban rallies ahead of the August polls in view of the covid-19 pandemic.

He has since assured supporters that this year’s General Election will be issue based.

Hon Lubinda said the campaigns will be about showing the people what the Patriotic Front party has done for them.

He said President Edgar Lungu wants to make sure that all Zambians must be counted in all the developmental projects.

Hon Lubinda explained that President Edgar Lungu has modified the Party slogan from leaving no one behind to making every Zambian count.

He said the President is embracing every Zambian through the motto making every Zambian count.

He said the Patriotic Front members have an opportunity to ensure that Zambia continues to be a beacon of peace on the African continent.

Hon Lubinda said victory is already secured for the PF in the August polls.

“The Patriotic front is in government, come 15th august you will escort President Edgar Lungu for another swearing in,” he said.

Hon. Lubinda said this when the National Democratic Congress ( NDC) announced their resolve to support the candidature of President Lungu in the August 12 polls at the party Secretariat.

  2. Shutt up, Given Lubinda. Masks are a matter of personal choice. HH’s supporters are adults who make their own choices.

  3. What a lie! If you are a leader, you are supposed to be the first one to suffer,” he said.
    How come Lungu has more bodyguards than Given? And how come Lungu is protected by the Presidential defamation law and Lubinda isn’t?

    They muzzled you thinking you were to be a running mate. Your political career ended as justice minister with blood and failed Bill 10.

  7. It doesn’t surprise us because the upnd is a party of very ignorant thuggish tribal apes. These apes have no sense of shame. It is the same paying of cadres to attend public events that led to the death of 2 innocent citizens last time. Remember that all this was also orchestrated by that f00I hh. He has blood on his hands and will pay the price soon.

  8. If people are old enough to make political choices, they’re certainly old enough to make some choices about their own health where information is publicly available.

  10. Mr Lubinda is being petty on this issue and instead must concentrate on important issues. Of course he is frustrated to see how HH has received such a huge support during this time and it has shocked many in his camp. The news was out there that HH is going to be filling in his nomination and the masses came out in support. It seems Mr Lubinda and his camp are paying so much attention to HH so much that he knows that he had double gloves and masks. This is not the time for petty politicking boss, start informing the people of Zambia why the price of essentials commodities have skyrocketed under your watch and what you will be doing to reverse this terrible situation we are currently in since you claim to have already won the election anyway.

  12. Don’t worry Honorable, according to Chishimba Kambwili they were not really there. The crowd was fake. So any masks would have been fake too. So why worry?

  13. Why are you calling him “Hon Given Lubinda” there is no honourable anything at this time…this man is not even ashamed he would have made a good Veep but Lazy Lungu overlooked him as he is too insecure. You talk of developmental projects funded by loans but dont tell the people how you will reduce the debt.

  14. To the contrary, HH led by example by masking up. He has no power to compel his supporters, who are adults, to musk up. This is just petty politics. No argument here.

  16. Does HH have access to Govt resources to supply Members of the Public with gloves and face masks!?

    Did Lubinda or Lungu do that when they were in the Opposition? Cheap politics!

  17. Am non partisan…neither PF nor UPND…but my observation is that UPND is big online…majority Diasporans who don’t even vote…to the contrary PF is big on the ground with actual physical Voters….and this has been the case for the past 5 elections ever since Online publications mushroomed….so from this you can tell who will win elections on August 12….talk to me on August 17th or 18th

  18. Anonymous – You have it in your head that if you are against Lungu’s leadership or lack of it you are in opposition…you have to bypass that hurdle first then make an observation and mind you people on the ground including in PF are scared of talking!!

  21. You may also wish to know that as UPND supporters we are insisting that HH uses triple and not double masks and gloves because we cannot afford anything untoward happening to our torch bearer at this hour. In fact we will be lobbying for our UPND management team to stock some FDA approved monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of COVID -19 just in case

  22. Time has caught up with PF (January 2021 ) PF Antonio Mwanza mocked HH’s Zoom burial attendance meeting after police blocked him from going to the Copperbelt calling it (the zoom meeting) ‘a good thing for the violent opposition leader’. Speaking in an interview in Lusaka yesterday shortly after featuring on Millennium Radio, Mr Mwanza disclosed that no police officer will this year allow HH to hold public meetings when ECZ opens up campaigns in June and July as ‘he is a violent and desperate leader’. He said the only public meetings the UPND Leader will be allowed to hold during campaigns for 12th August Elections will be those conduced through zoom and radio interviews. “HH is my brother and I have no grudge against him. I only differ with him politically. But I should state that HH is…

  23. Iwe Lubinda me I was there It is not true as I stood next to him. I guess as usual you guys just like simple politicking without raising substantive issues. Please concentrate on convincing citizens why they can’t eat meals right now, why Cadres harrass innocent citizens & bare tax & revenue collectors, why opposition members can be unlawfully detained above 14 days for simple crimes and yet PF Cadres get away with very serious criminal matters, why arm PF Cadres like a military wing, what is the source of billions of Kwacha being played with & distributed country wide by PF cadres. This is what Zambians want to understand.

  24. It’s strange that yello man will get his gratuity before the retirees who retired when he was still working.

  25. When his boss was campaigning round the country earlier on with their PF cadres without masks he did not notice, all of sudden because it is HH, he is able to notice now

  26. It is foolish for a former minister Hon. Given Lubinda to stoop so low for condemning HH to wear double mask. It is a duty of every Zambian to wear a mask. If an individual doesn’t wear a mask the police should arrest such a person. It laughable for Given to utter such words. HH is an example, demonstrating what citizens are suppose to do.

  27. for reasons that need no mention it will be the saddest day for Mr Lubinda should UPND be the one elected in office! The big number of Zambian politicians is “amass wealth impatient” thus abandon being very effective in the opposition to quickly join in the feasting ruling party! HH has unsettled many in the PF that he gets accused of not funding things that are government responsibility! Zambians know HH has been accused of not modernizing school and other infrastructure in his “village” now who is supposed to provide masks or guide every Zambian to protect themselves? Where are the masks or substitutes? Indeed a leader has to ensure the people he governs are well provided for before amassing the little wealth the country generates to themselves as multi billionaire Lungu in a short…

  28. Ba PF ikaleni panshi, it’s only 6 days ago when you were fighting amongst yourselves without masks, even Bowman was parading the streets of kabushi with a handful of un masked PF cadres but left in a hurry after masked UPND supporters booed him. Stop being petty!

  29. In my political analysis, by going out in big numbers, UPND is going to lose many votes as their supporters will catch Covid-19, that will not only affect them, their families, leaders (MPs and HH) but their campaigns end of July to the date of voting.

    Mr. HH shall strategize better campaign strategy.

    Think!

  30. Short-sighted strategy. At the rate these are assembling, most of them will be covid positive. Then no body to campaign and with few deaths, whole campaign will boomerang. Think!

  31. PATHETIC FOOL. HH IS BEING A GOOD EXAMPLE BY SHOWING HIS FOLLOWERS THAT ONE SHOULD WEAR A MASK UNLIKE YOU !
