I wish to make it known that I have resigned from the Patriotic Front political party of the Republic of Zambia and have further resigned from my position as Member of The Central committee of the same party.

I sincerely thank President Edgar Chagwa Lungu for having appointed me As Minister of Southern province in which I served for five years scoring numerous measurable and visible economic development successes in the Southern province.

He gave me an opportunity to apply my profesional faculties and grow in leadership for which I am grateful as this benefited the citizens of our land.

I further thank the civil service, chiefs, the church, private sector and citizens who helped me ripen into the leader I am today. Longevity has its place in nature and history but the opportunity I was given is one that I will cherish now and in the distant days. I remain Patriotic to my Fatherland, Zambia

Hon Dr Edify Hamukale

  1. That’s what is the problem with Zambian politics. Why didn’t he leave while the boat was still afloat? How can you trust such a person, who deserts his friend in time of need. What does that mean? It means the person only wants to see the buttered side of bread. Lungu needs his friends now more than ever.

  3. Who’s surprised by this? HH will welcome him, as will if Dr Canisius Banda, Chishimba Kambwili and GBM follow him. HH has no time for petty political squabbles. I personally know him and I know the views he holds on the big issues that face Zambia. So trust me.

  6. FOR SMART POLITICS , THE UPND ALLIANCE THIS IS NOT TIME
    TO WELCOME POLITICAL PROSTITUTES , IT IS TO WORK , LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE HON. ACKSON SEJANI AS THE NEW
    ABLE MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE , LIVESTOCK AND FISHERIES , NO NEED FOR TOO MANY MINISTERS OR MINISTRIES AT ALL

    GREAT MAN FORMER MMD – DEPUTY MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE DID SERIOUS THEN UNDER THE AGRICULTURE INVESTMENT SUPPORT PROGRAMME AND RURAL INVESTMENT FUND PROGRAMMES , WE DID GREAT THINGS TOGETHER AS PRIVATE SECTOR

  7. UPND have been warned, Zambia did not vote for an individual they voted for change. Bring back the same politicians who have been causing misery to the people at your own peril. You will be a one term party if you bring back these unrecyclabels. It is also in your own interest to ensure the PF party remains strong as an opposition to keep you in check. PF are going down because of the arrogance which should never be ignored.

  12. @12 That Kaizer was a nuisance for almost 3 and half years! I went and did a degree and graduated. I came back after graduation and still found him yapping on Lusaka Times! People have time. I am sure he has only gone away for a sex change and will come back as Karen Zulu.

  13. That KZ was a nuisance for almost 3 and half years! I went and did a degree and graduated. I came back after graduation and still found him yapping on Lusaka Times! People have time. I am sure he has only gone away for a S3X change and will come back as Karen Zulu.

  14. And in the end Zambians will be dealing with GBM,KAMBWILI, NAWAKWI,KAMPYONGO and all the PF cadres….African politics and HH will welcome all the thieves from PF……..the only difference will be the name from PF to UPND…and now it will be looting reloaded…. ” we want change” we want change”…..,kikikikikikiki what change….NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN…

  15. AS WE EXPECTED THIS .WHEN A SHIP AT SEA STARTS LETTING IN WATER,SINKING ,THE RATS START JUMPING OUT
    KAMBWILI,NAWAKWI & GBM ARE ALREADY BUSY DRAFTING THEIR LETTERS OF APOLOGY TO HH.
    DESPICABLE SHAMELESS VULTURES

  17. He has broken the record to be the very first to down tools. But he did say he is flocking to UPND. He probably is taking a quiet life after politics.

  18. A few remarks and promises I remember
    1. Remove my six front teeth
    2. A tonga will rule but not this particular one.
    3. We are winning by 70%
    4. We have done our homework
    5. This is Zambia and not Southern province
    6. I will handover to myself
    7. Cut my private parts if x wins
    8. We have just gone on holiday and will be back
    9. We need this weak candidate even in 2026
    10. Kopala is no go zone for x party
    11. Add some more

  19. The new Anti corruption commission guys need to sort out all these thieves like hamukale and other looters of government funds

    That boasting criminal kaizer zulu should not escape…he must be put on 10 most wanted

  20. Being in the party is not necessarily the same as being in government. Besides that there are only so many jobs in government. Certainly not enough to give every party member a job.

  21. The UPND will begin by weakening the former ruling party PF, dismantling it, encouraging squabbles, even unnecessarily creating bye elections. The main preoccupation would be to grow the party to resilient strength.

  22. Mercenaries have started showing their true colours even before a new President is sworn in. UPND should not even make a mistake of accepting such people into their party

  23. Politicians don’t choose who to admit or refuse. All the bus station cadres at Lusaka intercity and elsewhere will switch allegiance when dust settles clad in red Barret harassing commuters. That is a livelihood. PF promised to give it to city council but cadre power outweighed policies.

  24. NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN….AND YOU WILL SEE 90% OF PF BANDITS DEFECTING TO UPND AND HH WILL WELCOME THEM WITH OPEN HANDS……African politics….Just like in Zimbabwe the only change was the head of Government the rest all old Politicians…and UPND will go down quick if they embrace PF Bandits and cadres and commanders

  25. If HH wants to be a one term President then he should welcome all PF Bandits and MMD thieves….then he will be retired quickly….he has only 3 years to work the other 2 years will be campaign time…so if he starts working with rejected PF Bandits they will just be there to loot more and disturb his agenda….and if they see that he hasn’t done anything in 3 years they will start dumping him and again defecting to PF….remember the Politicians cannot survive outside Politics…they have to find a way to eat and loot

  26. @ Mulongoti Machayi

  27. HH does not need any defectors. They are crooks and thieves involved in loot and plunder.

    These thieves need to brought to books including that monkey KZ

    HH has done it. Now that I voted HH I depart back to the UK.

  28. People of Zambia rejected Cadrerism and corruption…and so if HH won’t be able to deal with Cadres and corruption…then it’s back to square one….so nothing will change…just name change from EDWARD CHAGWA LUNGU TO HAKAINDE HICHILEMA….so Zambians will continue crying…let’s see how he will handle his first 100 days in office…..I voted for Biden and now my taxes are going to fight the Taliban….and fuel has gone up in here in the USA…….inflation is high…sigh!!!!!

  29. DEADFLY HAMBAKALE, I WILL COME AND KNOCK OF YOUR FRONT TEETH AS PER YOUR OFFER. YOU SAID “IF HH WINS COME AND REMOVE MY-KUBANGWA!!!!” NO EXCUSES MWANAA.. THE HAMMER , THE CHISEL AND MUNGWALA ARE ALREADY IN MY HANDS AWAITING DEPLOYMENT IN YOUR THICK GUMS.

  30. Finally I can have fresh air. I was one of the people that were sorted out by PF. What a relief! I have forgiven them but definitely, I will not forget what I went through in their hands. Ladies and gentlemen, these people were deadly!
