UPND Secretary General Urges Keembe To Vote For Brains Not Tribe

Share

United party For National Development (UPND) Secretary General Batuke Imenda has urged the people of Keembe to vote for President Hakainde Hichilema who has solutions to problems being faced by Zambians.

Mr Imenda says Zambians must not vote for people who are advancing tribalism instead of offering solutions to their plight.

The party Secretary General was speaking in Keembe this afternoon during a mobilization meeting in Keembe.

Mr Imenda said Keembe was a farming area that should produce huge yields but because of the high cost of farming inputs such as fertiliser, the region was suffering.

He said once elected President Hichilema would ensure that farmers got reasonably priced fertiliser because he was a farmer like them.

Mr Imenda noted that President Hichilema was a businessman who had built a successful business empire and therefore was capable of running the country successfully too.

The Secretary General also presented UPND aspiring candidate for MP Princess Kasune and Councillor Chairperson Nyeleti.

Mr Imenda also recieved defectors from the ruling PF led Keembe district Chairman

  1. Telling people not to consider tribalism usually has the opposite effect. Not a clever move!

  2. UPND continues to be disorganised. Jumping from one Alliance to another. Mutati as usual is gone quite after failing to secure the UPND running mate. Probably already privately talking to PF . The VEEP and Running mate(Mrs Nalumango) has developed cold feet for whatever reason. We are not hearing much from her.
    At this rate of disorganisation and Confussion ..HH will again fail to get to plot 1. Please ba UPND put your act together. We do not want disapointments again. We dont want ifya ma court petitions.

  3. Yes this country need new brains to turn around the economy not tribesmen. I have been through all regimes but this one has really messed up things. Doctors are being threatened with arrests on labour related matters. How can a caring govt fail to resolve outstanding issues with resident doctors at this crucial time when they need votes. There are some technocrats who are hell bent on sowing confusion in the nation. Bwana SG tell the nation the truth not half truths which the other camp is spreading. The beauty of telling lies day in day out is that lies have got shorter legs and memories. They have reached dead end. No matter how hard they try to frustrate it is still not working.

  4. Zoona, I like your honest observation. People must hear the message and visibility is important. I am still weighing candidates at this stage and messages are important tools. But all in the spirit of one Zambia one nation one people.

  5. So a party which said only a t.o.n.g.a could rule it, is now lecturing us on tribalism. F.u.c.k off my friend !!!!

  6. “Don’t feed the trolls (aka Kaizar Zulu).” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.
    You SHOULD try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re NOT worth your time of day.

  7. UPND always prides in being the most educated party. In fact they are very dull. They fail to get on top of PF. They have no strategy, no brains, no wits. If they are shrewd and not tribalists, they would have been in power by now. How does one fail at grade 7 five straight times and still blame the Innocent different school teachers? No brains. That’s UPND for you.

  8. UNPD SG, I am afraid it will soon be too late to deliver hope to Zambian voters [ Salient point; less than 3 months remaining]. Get it, Zambia agriculture is better than ever before.

  9. Please Mr Imenda, stop wearing those lopsey suits during election Time and get serious. Suits are not appropriate at election campaigns, so put them aside and wear them after elections.
    Are you not embarrassed wearing suits amongst our poorest; they simply put you out of place and look as if you are out of touch.
    Nitumezi adult!!

  10. As it stands, we have no suitable leader to lead the country. I conducted an unbiased assessment of these leaders, they are ALL not fit.

    They all have scores to settle with each other and themselves but it does not involve improving yours and my life.

    Voting for a suitable candidate this year will be a very big problem for me.

  11. K-Z is now starting to panic this can be seen by his irritation and 0bscene comments

  12. All the 9 comments above are low, too PFsh. You all sound like inmates roaming around under PF,
    This is why Zambia needs HH and Nalumango, plus ministers like Sean Tembo, KBF and Mmembe.

  13. UPND leader Hichilema shared a stolen Manifesto in the name of development, which leader does that??? He has no sense for writing the development plans of this nation, how could he handle it issues???

  14. Why you people are roaming around, gathering Zambians in the alarming time of the Covid-19 pandemic? Instead of conducting rallies, why you people are not doing social media campaigns, give interviews on radio, television, why you want a crowd? Look at PF, learn something from them!!

  15. HH is the one who talks about tribalism and not development. President Edgar Lungu brought development across the country including rural areas, and left no one behind!

  16. You know Hichilema is best in what thing??? Imitating President Lungu! All his speech, development plans, etc. is copied from the President. People can check it by themselves on social media platforms.

  17. UPND speech is incomplete without taking the name of President Edgar Lungu and PF. This is known as an obsession!

  19. Hence proved that UPND people are living in their own fairy tale world, it is high time that they should wake up now. And so, we are there to show them the mirror in the upcoming general elections.

  20. Yes, HH is a businessman who had built a successful business empire but only for himself. He cannot improve the lives of his party members, everyone is leaving him because he betrayed them. He failed as a party president, forget about running the country.

  21. Ok! Let’s talk about the development or social work of #Bally. Well, there is none!!!! You think people will still vote for him? Never!

  22. I am telling you guys, Imenda was drunk, he must have mixed President Lungu with HH! As no normal people would call Hichilema is a person with the brain! ????

  23. I do agree with someone on this blog who said if UPND and HH had brains they would have been in government a long time ago, look to what Sata did a man with humble education was more intelligent or had more brains to single handily form a party and went to form a government, he was so intelligent that he convinced almost all Zambians that he was the right person to rule at that time.
    Now go back to UPND and HH he inherited a very successful party, for the past fifteen years he has been struggling to win and today things are not looking any better for him I feel sorry for him that even his trusted men and women have left him .
    Now he is settling on the second choice men and women.

  24. He cannot be allowed to use that language in SP.
    It is a very awkward statement. Amazing how when it’s election time all ideas evaporate from the upnd. Usually they switch to vulgarities and misconstruing.
    As you talk tribe, kindly look yourselves in the mirror.
    Remember you all, neither Edgar nor Hetch Hetch will put food on your table.
    They are definitely not worth dying for.

  25. HOW CAN PRESIDENT LUNGU BE MENTIONED WHEN NOBODY KNOWS HIS STATE OF HEALTH
    MAYBE AS MENTIONED ELSEWHERE THAT HE HAS TO RELIQUISH THE PRESIDENCY SHOULD PF WIN AND HE WONT SIGN THE PAPERS
    SPE$CULATION HAS TAKEN OVER DUE TO HIS SILENCE >>

  26. Brains brains that cannot put their thoughts on paper. It has taken many years to put one plan together . Only to be given a stollen manifesto – Jamaica is a good place to be.

  27. Quote ” Mr Imenda noted that Presidential Hichilema was a businessman who had built a successful business empire… therefore was capable of running the country successfully too”

  28. End of quote. That is so Trumpian! Look what happened to the USA. Be serious Mr Imenda. I note, you address Mr HH in past tense!!!!

  29. THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS SET TO VOTE FOR BALLY. THOSE WHO HAVE TRUST IN THE PF PARTY THAT HAS FALLEN OUT OF FAVOUR WITH EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD APART FROM CHINA WILL FAINT ON 12 AUGUST 2021. SEE WHAT IS HAPPENED IN KABWE, MUFULIRA AND NDOLARECENTLY. TALK OF MULUNGUSHI CONFERENCE CENTER DURING NOMINATIONS. DOESN’T THIS TELL YOU THAT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY VOTEDBUT SIMPLY WAITING FOR FORMALITY ON THAT DAY? IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT LOOK AT NAKONDE! WHAT YOU SEEAT THESE PLACES IS WHAT YOU WILL SEE EVERYWHERE. THIS ELECTION IS DIFFERENT.
