It is too soon to judge the UPND’s performance in government-Katuka

Feature Politics It is too soon to judge the UPND’s performance in government-Katuka

United Party for National Development (UPND) national chairperson Stephen Katuka has said that it is too soon to judge the party’s performance in government.

Mr. Katuka said that it is unfair for some people to say the UPND has failed to deliver on its election campaign promises when it has only been in power for a few months.

Mr. Katuka said that the UPND government has a five–year mandate and should be given chance to develop the country.

Mr. Katuka was speaking in Milenge District when he drummed up support for UPND candidate Charles Safely in the Sokontwe local government by election slated for this Thursday.

He said the UPND government has so far introduced free education, increased Constituency Development Fund (CDF) from K1.6 million to K25.7-million, and is paying retirees.

Mr. Katuka said President Hakainde Hichilema is working hard to fix the economy.

And Chairperson for Mobilisation Sylvia Masebo said President Hichilema is keen on distributing wealth to all parts of the country without discrimination, an indication that he is not a tribalist.

Ms. Masebo urged the electorate to vote for a candidate who understands the UPND party manifesto of free education, rural development and wealth creation.

The PF is fielding Morgan Mayani while the Socialist party has Rabby Kunda as its candidate and Patrick Chola is contesting the seat as an independent candidate.

The seat fell vacant after Vincent Kunda who was an independent councillor resigned.

    • Ba UPND balatubombela, they are not like those fake guys the PF the Zambians chased. Faking everything including opinion polls that they were winning, the same thing they are doing in Kabwata, same psychological ware fare, who can leave his home to go and vote for an incompetent party like PF

  1. Mr Katuka apologize to the people that you told lies with your MULEKUTIKA? We are fellow Zambians, we are going to forgive. After all we always accept mediocrity.

  2. UPND will not be a failed project like PF which promised more money in peoples pockets in 2011 and at the end of the ten years there was absolutely no money in peoples pockets

  3. Everyone with a clear mind and blessed with analytical capacity understands that it would only be appropriate to use “failed” on the first ever UPND administration at the conclusion of its 5 year term! It is failed PF who chose to use their time destructively in their governance than being constructive of the economy. The shellacking at the 2021 polls turned into a bitter pill that they are failing to swallow but its a reality that their behavior trying to disparage their vanquisher will get them nowhere though for love of country (patriotism) they can in their current role in the opposition help governance checks and balances constructively drawing from their “failures” having been there!

  4. “That which can harness or take care of you, is known by its familiar looks”! So far the looks of the UPND and the way they are looking after us, is very concerning.

  5. “ United Party for National Development (UPND) national chairperson Stephen Katuka has said that it is too soon to judge the party’s performance in government.” Mr Katuka has no idea what his Veep said” that they Govt had met the peoples expectations.

  8. The indicators so far show that we ain’t going anywhere. BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW-BMW!!!!

  9. Yes, because of PF reckless borrowing, that is why the situation is at it is, anybody taking over was going to start from the back foot, so don’t blame UPND for PF created problems

  10. Ba Chairman , besides that the UPND lead govt has just started implementing its budget which will determine its levels f performance. Real taxes will start being seen third week of February 2022. So far so good people are free going about their businesses without some one looking over their shoulders or being levied at every activity.

  11. @Dunduzane, we have heard that before. MMD spent the majority of their tenure blaming UNIP for their failure in solving the problems the promised they will fix, ok at least they forewarned us of what lay ahead, but your Bally and crew where promising instant fixing and only instantly increase fuel prices. Now today, they cannot make a statement without mentioning the word PF.

    Just fix things bane.

  12. UPND SPEAK PRIDE, PRIDE, PRIDE AND YET THEY HAVE NOT YET GROWN TEETH! YOU ARE NOT WAITING FOR PEOPLE TO RATE YOU BUT ARE IN THE FOREFRONT TELLING THE WORLD THAT YOU ARE THE BEST SINCE INDEPENDENCE MEANING THAT YOU HAVE RATED YOURSELVES ALREADY AS NUMBER ONE! TALKING, YES YOU ARE NUMBER ONE, KIKIKI! YOU DON’T DO THAT! YOU ARE NOT YET THE BEST UNTIL PEOPLE SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND YOU ARE DOING; THEN, THEY WILL COMPARE YOU TO OTHERS. MEANWHILE, THE WORLD IS ALREADY VALUING ECL FOR THE MASSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE IN JUST A FEW YEARS IN OFFICE.
    MIND YOU PRIDE COMES BEFORE ONE’S DOWNFALL!
    BECAREFUL. WORK HARD FIRST AND BEGIN TO “SONTA” OTHERWISE, YOU ARE GOING TO EMBARRASS YOURSELVES. THE WORLD HAS BOTH EARS AND EYES. THEY HEAR AND SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND THEN IT JUDGES YOU.

  13. Firstly all you dull people, what did PF fail to do apart from the lies that your failed masters have peddled? Which Govt will ever match PF’s unprecendented infrastructure development? Where do you think the money to do all these came from? Who will care by 2026 that PF stole apart from people wanting to see if this Govt will have matched PF’s development? Who cares today to be told that MMD stole? Don’t you dull heads know that we could not develop without borrowing? Does America also not owe China trillions of dollars? If PF did not borrow , Was Zambia not going to become a become bush by now because all MMD did was fight Kaunda’s govt which they accused of stealing and yet no proof was ever presented but PF came in with Political will to borrow and start from where KK left off…

  15. Mr Katuka you know that every building stands on the foundation, the foundation you put up cannot hold any good strong building you cannot build on IMF and expect any development this we have been advising but you couldn’t listen to us.
    Now because you couldn’t listen to the voices of reason you are going to be the worst government Zambia has ever had , and after 2026 you will go out crying, the pain you will inflict on Zambians will judge you, your lies have already started yielding results negative results and misery, in the families of Zambians by this year the suffering of Zambians will be overwhelming.
