Control media propaganda, Kampyongo advises UPND Government

Headlines Control media propaganda, Kampyongo advises UPND Government

Government has been advised to use state apparatus to disseminate accurate information to the public and avoid uncontrolled propaganda particularly on social media.

The advice follows social media speculation that President Hakainde Hichilema was expected to address the national assembly today when in fact not.

Shiwangandu Member of Parliament Stephen Kampyongo, raised the issue during his contribution on the debate to the Supply committee on the budget for the office of the President, state house and Head 01 in parliament today.

Mr Kampyongo said some members of Parliament today have received calls asking whether the President will make an address in parliament.

“Your Honour the Vice President, one other concern is how the advisers are managing the aspect of propaganda. Am sure all of us here have been reached today with propaganda circulating that the Head of State was going to be in Parliament to address the House and these are things that need to be managed and dealt with” he said

  1. A very good observation. Presently the ‘New Dawn’ GRZ lacks an aggressive media team. One would think starting from the Information Minister down to the spokesperson, that they have gone to sleep.

    Wake up!

  3. To start with , the minister for information and broadcasting who is also a sort of GRZ spokes person should be replaced……….

    She is more like a primary school teacher………not vocal enough against the PF hooligans and propaganda……….

    Second, UPND and statehouse media team s are losing the propaganda war on SM…….

    They are too late with inadequate responses……….

    This will morph into a beast they can not control if they leave it any longer……

  4. It’s difficult for the UPND Administration to address the issue of propaganda because they thrived on it. They’re still doing it without shame. They told us that HH was invited to the White House by Biden but it turned out that it was lie. There are many examples that I can cite but it’s not necessary. These lies will soon come to haunt them. Soon it’ll be difficult to tell whether they’re telling the truth or lies. They even believe their own propaganda. They have failed to prove that the PF left USD35BN debt. Lie have short legs

  5. Addressing this can be received as harassment. Zambians sometimes criticize anything. Arrest them because they have stolen, they will say he is persecuting that tribe. You don’t arrest them ati has failed to arrest those that were involved in corruption.

  6. What Propaganda Kampyongo? Your PF Government controlled Media to work for PF only. What a Shame that institutions like ZNBC were reduced to being a Propaganda Machine for PF. Let the People TALK and what’s wrong with speculating that the President will address the Nation?? At least we have One that Addresses the People. The former just used to Drink and Gossip with you.

  7. Kampyongo is not raising any pertinent issue, Social media is here to stay, sometimes bad some times good. These PF guys are always crying about something, even sad to hear Given Lubinda saying on radio today that Davies Chamas’ issue of assault in Sessheke was closed and he does not know why the Police are arresting him again , this is a man who was justice minister who ought to know that cases are not closed by the Police but by the courts, Davies Chama never saw his day in court, so how can the case could be closed, He knows very well that him and his friends just told the police to close the case that time, lets always be truthful please

    • He isn’t talking about social media he is just urging government to control state owned media like PF did. Dictators always want others to emulate them.

    • Parlykamyongoment pseudnom, are you his spokesperson, are you going to answer for the thugs from PF who were being sent to stone helicopters during elections in Shiwang’andu from 2015 on wards

  8. He still thinks it is PF times when anything attracted unfounded arrest and detention for days on end — beyond the required lawful period. Let the parliament website be more vibrant and responsive, as well as the other social media instruments in the space where rumor is being milled. Do not punish the rumor mill. Splash yourselves there and use the same tools to fight it back. Mufuna muzivutisa amakapokola.

  9. What do you mean “control media propaganda” You just want UPND to control DeadNBC, Times and Daily Mail like your authoritarian regime did. That is a primitive understanding of Democracy. In the democracy of our constitution government does not control news media. Dora, Amos and Kambwili were doing so illegally and now Kampyongo like a previous slave owner after abolition is missing his slaves and therefore wants the same old system to prevail.
    Government can have its own propaganda wing separate from public media which can release official government statements. I think that should be exclusively the job of ZANIS.

  10. In case you didn’t get it, UPND operatives circulated an Order Paper to indicate that Bally was going to address Parliament and take questions. Parliament didn’t have any such program yesterday and that’s what Kampyongo talked about. This lie came from UPND circles

  12. Kampyongo can`t think of other means than to “CONTROL MEDIA”. Those are strong words, its the usage of such strong words that inspired PF to start suppressing and closing of media houses.
    UPND doesn’t deserve such advice…… ZIPUP.

  13. It is only Kampyogo who received an alert that the president will in parley. Neither of the MPs in government got that nor raised it.
