Charmaine Musonda ditches UPND to Join PF

Share

The United Party for National Development (UPND) has continued to lose key members of the opposition political party due to poor leadership.

The latest to ditch Hakainde Hichilema and his UPND is Charmaine Musonda who has since joined the Patriotic Front (PF) together with 351 other members.

And Speaking in Chilanga yesterday when she was welcomed in the party where everyone counts, Ms Musonda thanked President Edgar Chagwa Lungu for giving her an opportunity to serve the PF.

Ms Musonda who has also resigned from the position of Provincial Trustee for Lusaka in the UPND, promised to work tirelessly for the PF in Chilanga.

“We have come to work. I am humbled with the unity shown in the Patriotic Front. And allow me to make mention right from the start that we will work with the PF adopted candidate for Chilanga Honourable Maria Langa – mama ni mama,” She said.

Ms. Musonda described her former political party as a Cult of Cruel individuals whose only agenda is to use people for their selfish appetite for power.

She has since commended the Head of State for embracing all Zambians especially the women and the youths whom he has entrusted with leadership responsibilities.

The defectors were received by PF Member of the Central Committee (MCC) Joseph Malanji in the company of Provincial Chairperson MCC Kennedy Kamba and his Executive, MCC Frank Ng’ambi, PF aspiring Member of Parliament for Chilanga Hon Maria Langa and immediate past UPND Mbabala lawmaker Hon. Ephraim Belemu.

Meanwhile, MCC Joseph Malanji said people are joining the ruling Patriotic Front because they appreciate the ideologies of the party.

He said this is unlike the opposition UPND who seeks to frustrate every progressive move made by the government.

And Hon Malanji urged the people of Chilanga to give PF candidates votes so that the party can amass two-third majority in Parliament.

“There are decisions that we want to pass in Parliament but implementation is difficult because some people with their selfish leadership come with a preconceived mind to frustrate every government effort to better the lives of our people,” He said.

Meanwhile, MCC. Frank Ng’ambi said Ms. Charmaine Musonda’s defection was the beginning of the end of the UPND in Chilanga.

He said people can clearly see that Zambia under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu has been transformed.

“I want to assure those who have joined that you are thinking for generations to come. I am not seeing anyone currently who can be compared to President Lungu. I’m happy that my Sister who has been with the UPND in Chilanga, making inroads politically, has decided to join,” He said.

  6. Didn’t these PF people disfigure her face about a year ago? Now she goes crawling to people who showed her ultimate disrespect. For how much money? UPND, be careful who you chose. Choosing people for political convenience and expediency is what made you pick her in the first place, like how you picked GBM.
    It doesn’t work. These immoral, unprincipled people always go to the highest bidder.

  7. UPND made a wise decision not to adopt her an MP Candidate for Chilanga. She has been bought by PF and her relative Mwaliteta is likely to follow suit. Just like CK Mwaliteta is likely to eat his vomit. Good Riddance for bad rubbish.

The United Party for National Development (UPND) has continued to lose key members of the opposition political party due to poor leadership.
    She may have been bribed. She may have decided she wants to join a party with poor leadership so she can shine. All Iam saying is you must report facts not opinions

  13. That picture tells a thousand words about how HH feels about this woman. He has never looked at another person like that. His smile is very genuine too. Every other time that HH smiles yo can tell he is faking it. Here the body language is clear. There may be nothing but Psychology cannot lie. HH loves this woman. She may have been planted in UPND to seduce him. I hope he managed to follow his brain and not his heart.

  14. PF time out, third term is top down leadership That’s not how successful Colonies are built.

    PF and UPND your top down leadership is delaying International Monetary Fund.

    “Daniel Dennett thinks of what we think of as “mind” as “a trillion mindless robots dancing”. Not one of those robots gives a hoot what we think, but collectively they unwittingly choreograph the illusion that we have a self that is in control.”

    One Zambia one Nation.

    GRZ vs PF.

  15. Politics of the belly…this useless solola….she has been bought….shame shame…she should be ashamed of herself….and if PF loses she’ll crawl back to UPND….no principles

  23. Our only concern is how did you ever get to be candidate for Chilanga?
    Surely you and Iris need to form your own petticoat party.

  24. She’s a married murderer’s girlfriend who has no reputation whatsoever. She has the right to vote though and that vote is lost to her former party.

  25. Seems the owner of this blog is from Eastern province, I say so because when Rupia Banda was president, this paper helped him by campaigning for him indirectly, whilst de campaigning Micheal Chilufya Sata MHSRIP. Anything negative about Sata would make headlines, this vise is repeating itself with Lungu in Office. Surely tribalism will never end, Just look at the way you are writing about this story and many others involving the UPND cleary when you read between the lines you can see on which side they are on.

    OK defecting in the middle of the campaigns with 2 months to go before the general elections. So where have you been all this time? Things have just become bad now?
    What a country this is! No principles, no integrity, no ideological beliefs… just jumping around like m0nkeys looking for a fruit at the next branch.
    Are we really cursed as a people or what?
    Is it against the Constitution to ban these fake defections after campaigns have been announced? Unbelievable!

    This is what political prostitutes do. Once HH is in power all these defectors will be begging to come back. They should go to lungus house as he had accumulated millions of dollars through proceeds of crime and stealing

  32. Anybody can defect from any camp to another either singularly or as a group. It can be one or two days before voting. Some just come as endorsements while others are a tragic bombshells. Still such alter the political landscape

  33. As for the insults this woman is receiving, it only proves that even a b.i.t.c.h is equally important when it comes to numbers. We all have dignified characteristics that we protect from being assassinated. When Charmaine was UPND she wasn’t a w.h.o.r.e. until she defected! Sad. Let’s not scare off and threaten the womenfolk who are in politics

  36. I understand there is a major sharing of loot. Ati winangu uku wanati wamupase ka million mudala! It’s difficult — yah! These covid times and cash flying about?

  37. Chimp-Yongo’s girlfriend has finally decided to join him. This is a basic lesson: politics is not about numbers. It is about principles. In life you need enemies so that you know when you are winning. The enemies always go GREEN with Envy.

  38. @Buck Teeth Lungu
    When Lloyd Mulenga Kazia joined the UPND after failing to get PF adoption in Lusaka’s Matero, he did it out of principle? I doubt it. It was purely out of frustration to bring down the opposer’s dreams. Do you think your statement holds water. I doubt it.
