Victory is certain for PF because of what we have done in the last 10 years-Kampyongo

Feature Politics Victory is certain for PF because of what we have done in...

Patriotic Front ( PF ) member of the central committee (MCC) Stephen Kampyongo says victory for the ruling party is certain because of what it has done for the Zambian people in the past 10 years.

Speaking on Kabusha radio programme on Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) radio one, which was monitored by ZANIS in Chinsali today, Mr. Kampyongo said campaigns ahead of the August polls have been made easy for the PF because of its success story in the past one decade.

Mr Kampyongo, who is also Shiwang’andu constituency aspiring candidate, said the PF has transformed the country thus making itself a popular party of choice ahead of the August polls.

He said Chinsali, the provincial headquarters for Muchinga province, now boasts of modern infrastructure befitting a provincial town.

He explained that in the last five years, Chinsali has recorded remarkable infrastructure development that includes Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA ) offices, Police divisional headquarters, National Pensions Scheme Authority (NAPSA ) building, general hospital, and the six and four storey provincial administration blocks, among others.

Mr. Kampyongo, who is former Home Affairs Minister, said a modern and big civic centre has also been constructed in Chinsali to accommodate various departments and ministries that will be devolved to the local authority in line with the Decentralization Policy that the government is implementing.

“We have constructed a modern civic centre at Chinsali as you are aware that we are implementing the Decentralization Policy that will see a number of departments and ministries being devolved to the local authority,” he said.

He disclosed that the provincial administration in Chinsali has since moved into the new offices, leaving the old one under the charge of the District Commissioner.

Mr. Kampyongo noted that even without the holding public rallies, the PF party, which will rely on road shows and door to door campaigns, already has what to point at as evidence of what it has done in the past 10 years.

He further pointed out that the ruling party under President Edgar Lungu has performed relatively well in various sectors of the economy despite facing many challenges among them, the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said that the government is committed to further improve the country’s economy through the support of value additions to various commodities.

Mr. Kampyongo also said that the 100 percent acquisition of Mopani Mine will further strengthen the Zambian currency against other major foreign currencies because the company will be able to retain in the Zambian commercial banks its earnings from the sale of copper unlike in the past where copper earnings were externalised.

He said there will be more dollars in the Zambian commercial banks once copper is sold as well as when Zambian companies engage in more value additions and export finished products outside the country.

And Mr. Kampyongo has called on Zambians to seriously take the Covid -19 disease.

He said as Covid-19 survivor, he understands how serious the disease is.

  3. I agree with your view. However, our message to Zambians should be asking them to work with pf around the economic situation. Let us ask Zambians to the economy around the imoact of covid 19 and world wide economic challenges. Let us move away from the infrastructure issue people have already appreciated. Let us use the narrative as follows:
    In home mum and dad do the provisions and ensure all people in the home are happy.
    When the challenges overwhelmes the family, devorce between mum and dad is not the solution. Actually the children may want divorce but without realizing that it is actually the children that will suffer, the step mum or dad may not actually have their interest at heart.
    Let us relook at the message.

  4. PF should know that People don’t eat infrastructure . They want jobs, incomes ,lower prices,peace, hope etc. Under corrupt, incompetent, violent ECL People have suffered. Thru out Zambia People are crying out 4 a change of Govt. ECL has failed Zambians. Concourt has imposed Lungu on reluctant Zambians by giving him a Third Term. Chiluba wanted a Third Term badly but Zambians denied him. Lungu wants a Third Term to continue looting. On August 12 Zambians must vote Lungu out and elect Sober,Principled and Visionary HH as the New President of Zambia. Time will tell.

  5. What the PF has done in the last 10 years is that they have impoverished the majority of Zambians and have enriched themselves. Cost of living has skyrocketed, the dollar has skyrocketed, they have abrogated the constitution, the list is endless. The wind of change is blowing and it is unstoppable.

  7. If you have done so much , why are you blocking the opposition from mobilising ?

    By all rights PF should not even need to campaignseeing how much they have borrowed, but the corrupt theives are forcing them selves in Zambians and can not win any free and fair election………

    You kapoyongo and your boss will spend most of your time in courts……..

    we hope lungu collapsing the other day was not part of his rehearsal for collapsing each time he is draged to court…..

  8. We know HH , the man of God that he is , will want no retributions against lungu and PF thuggery should UPND win and say only God will judge lungu and his gang……..

    But for the future of zambia, we must demand lungu and his gang are made an example of to deter future abuses of citizens rights and must pay for the misery and corruption they have brought onto Zambians.

    Also the ring leaders of PF marauding cader thugs terrorising Zambians must be brought to justice, weather mob or judicial.

  9. Pamaka story izibika. Even a baby born this morning will tell you that pf is winning.why do you think upnd have been paying people to bring eligibility cases against our president? Why you think they celebrated when we informed them that our president had fainted? Do you think a party that thinks it can win an election would behave this way?

  11. @Citizen. U are spot on. People don’t eat infrastructure. They want Money in the pockets, food on the plate,lower consumers prices, jobs, peace etc. ECL has failed to provide these necessities of life. So on August 12 People will send ECL and PF “ku wire” at all costs. Lungu has already been elected and sworn in twice in and People don’t want to elect him for the third time. HH aka Bally will fix it.

  12. This is the only message PF numbskulls can say talk about development without talking about how they are going to pay back all the debt. People like Stephen K were nothing before they joined Gov’t today are millionaires….10 years of looting.

  13. It’s like building and building on kongole.
    If it was small company they could have
    Liquidated and recovered their money.But
    Because it’s a country.Bwana kampyongo
    Why are we defaulting in repayments?
    Tell the voters that we have infrastructure
    But we can’t pay.

  14. For those that feel the debt is unsustainable l have a message for you. The debt is repayable and PF has laid a platform to pay off the debt in a systematic and well thought out manner and here is how.
    Globally were going into a supercycle like the one we had in 2000 when the copper price hit over US9000. This time around it’s estimated the price would reach $15,000 by 2024 as the world will need approximately 1trillion US dollars every year for 10 years of copper to decarbonise the economy and make it environmentally clean.

  15. If the economy is as bad as you keep telling us, how is that ZRA has been collecting revenue beyond target in covid era ? With the developments in copper mines especially in Congo were Kukula Copper mine is expected to draw over a billion dollars investments in a couple of weeks/ months simply means the trade between Zambia and Congo will increase in terms of agriculture produce and Zambia is bound to benefit and ZRA will increase its revenue and increase capacity to pay back the loan.

  16. With estimated 1.2 billion Africans in African free trade areas the company is ripe for value addition and companies like trade kings and Zambia Breweries are already shifting their plants to multi facility zones to take advantage of the bigger market . The bigger market come with trickle down effect like outgrower schemes like what is happening in cassave value chain.

  17. With 750 mw of power added to the grid and other solar plants that are coming up, the country is poised to become a net exporter of power in southern, Eastern and Central African region.

  18. Yes Zambia need change but not change of Government but change of citizens mindset to take advantage of the many opportunities that have opened up and make our country prosperous. We ought to take personal responsibility over our country ECL or HH can only do their part the rest is up to us Zambians. As it’s PF has laid a way the rest is up to us to join in and do our part.

  19. Ba Kampyongo, all those buildings you list as modern are NO WHERE modern!! They are basic out dated designs that are not environment friendly! Besides, listing those buildings which could have been conduits for corruption cannot convince a discerning voter because DEVELOPMENT MUST REFLECT IN IMPROVEMENTS IN PEOPLES LIVES!! What use is a good civic centre to a villager whose child they educated cannot get a job? What use is a a new police station where there are corrupt, politically compromised cops who cannot protect citizens from PFs violence? Of what use is a NAPSA building in area where people are largely unemployed and have no social security and benefits to claim? You construct a four storey building and fail to provide good water reticulation to reach all the floors and without a…

  21. How former Home Affairs Minster and PF Shiwangandu PF parliamentary candidate Stephano Kapongololo been discrediting his own part because of his short memory, Just his latest press statement .” Because of what PF has undone for the people of Zambia in the past 10 years. EG. Campaigns ahead of the August polls have not been easy for the PF because of its unsuccessful story in the past decade especially with banning of campaign rallies, door to door strategy has been falling apart as would be voters cannot make a distinction between recently freed prisons and true greens who jumped out of the boat long time ago.
    On development EG> Though Chinsali, the Provincial Headquarters for Muchinga Province now boasts of Modern Infrastructure befitting a provincial town, people are angered because…

  22. Zambians are not stup!d. They see the economy is down the drain, they see you get less Kwacha for a dollar, they see prices in the shops are doubled or tripled, they experience rampant corruption at every roadblock, they see Covid-19 out of control, and they know the problem is the horrible PF government!

  23. PF Inflation 23% MMD 6%
    PF Exchange rate kwacha to US dollar K23 MMD K6
    PF reserves 1 and half cover MMD 1 year
    PF Bore hole tax MMD no bore tax
    PF Unemployment record high MMD manageable
    PF Mealiemeal price K150 a bag MMD K30
    PF Unsustainable debt MMD debt manageable
    And all these stats were before covid, ladies and gentleme, the stats above are what are universally acceptable to measure an economy, nothing else

  27. I just think PF standards are very low, if they had set their standards high, they would have resigned on their own with all these negative economic stats staring at them and even before Covid came. Hiding in covid does not help, it al boils down to competency levels, all of Zambias neighbours have covid but none of these countries have had their currencies depreciate by over 50% in a single year

  28. I have always said , the problem lungu will face with all these new buildings is……..

    The population can see all the development, and expects a corresponding development in standards of living , not the opposite…….

  29. Maybe Lungu needs to be given a medal for being the worst President since Independence in 1964. Corrupt, violent,incompetent and clueless Lungu has destroyed our Economy and ruined our lives. We stopped Chiluba’s Third Term Bid and on August 12 Zambians will stop stealing a Third Term. Concourt has given Lungu a Third Term Gift. On August 12 Voters have the Power and Final say to deny Lungu an illegal Third Term. Zambians should shame ECL by voting for HH and UPND Alliance massively. Time will tell.

  30. @Musa voting for HH and upnd is the waste thing that will ever happen to Zambia, First you must understand that hh has no idea of how the government system functions secondly the people or group that sponsor upnd promotes homosexuality, lesbianism,gay rights this is why hh on his press briefing said when he is sworn in at 10hrs by 12hrs the Kwacha will appreciate against the USA simply because that very organisation will push in it’s homo dollars. Zambians these are not elections where by you vote based on your stomach because we will end up like Esau who despised his birthright for a bow of stew. Zambians lets vote using your head.. There is nothing that upnd will change infact they will take Zambia backwards because upnd have never explained how therefore be wise..

  31. Have ever heard upnd talk about hospitals,roads, schools, infrastructure..The just talk about the economy. Economy as t component of manufacturing this country at one point had 300 plus parastatal companies which used to export products not only to African countries but to America, Europe and Asia why because of the industries before chiluba, consultant hh and the group sold off our nation assets, Ask hh if he can support the inquiry into privatization! For those of you born after privatization you will never understand. Today Zambia has 28 parastatal companies and hh can open his mouth to talk about unemployment without shame it’s wickedness

  32. To government workers 50% of you please prepare yourself to be on the streets if you make a wrong choice..
    For now i end here.
