UPND government is giving wealth to foreigners at the expense of Zambians

Feature Politics UPND government is giving wealth to foreigners at the expense of Zambians

Leader of the opposition in Parliament Brian Mundubile has said the UPND government was too fast in giving wealth to foreigners at the expense of Zambians who voted for it but warned that the New Dawn government must start preparing itself for a time when Zambians will know the truth.

Speaking on Kasama radio last evening Mr Mundubile who is PF Member of the Central Committee and Mporokoso Central Member of Parliament described the UPND as ” a government of DRAMA” which always wanted to make people, dwell on falsehoods, machinations and insecurity such as summoning public outcry on petty issues as is the Milingo case, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the F. T. J University simply to occupy the minds of Zambians while in the background, they were transferring Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) to Vandata, a so-called investor that failed Zambians before.

Mr Mundubile said, while rich foreigners were getting the mines to run as well as tax holidays, Zambia ended up with the back mountain and said “UPND has long forgotten about the unemployed youths who voted for the party in power now and doesn’t care about the economy any more because they have too much trust in the foreigners” and hope to realize their dreams.

Mr Mundubile called on the New Dawn government to change their focus and focus on Zambians and reduce the cost of living adding, that Zambians must demand the mines and not the BLACK MOUNTAIN, adding that issues of grabbing PF vehicles and calling everyone a thief, arresting people and paralysing operations the of opposition was only a ploy to divert the attention of Zambians in order for them to do things that will leave Zambians crying for decades.

Mr Mundubile explained that there was no law for political parties to disclose the sources of their funding and asking PF alone to explain how they bought their vehicles was one thing Zambians did not expect adding, “MMD bought their own vehicles while the UPND also has vehicles they bought and nobody is questioning them, wondering why they labelled ” the entire PF ‘thieves’ but were busy celebrating the so-called thieves who defect into their part.

Mr Mundubile said what the UPND was doing was the persecution of the worst kind even in the absence of evidence and said when the UPND talked about getting rid of caderism, they lied because *”now we see worse cadres who attack people even at court premises.

Mr Mundubile said prices are going up and life has become unbearable because UPND has diverted its attention to the rich foreigners while neglecting poor Zambian citizens and that there will be a time when people are going to find out the truth, and UPND should prepare for that time because they will have a lot of explaining to do.

Mr Mundubile said the UPND was so busy trying to “kill the opposition” calling them names, and persecuting everyone but wondered why they were celebrating each time they welcomed a defector into their party adding: “how do you celebrate so much when one of those you knew as a thief joins you?”

*He explained that no vehicle was bought using government resources* and said “just like the MMD, or even the UPND, they have well-wishers and other sympathizers who fund political parties or buy them vehicles.

  3. Dullness is when you give your resources away to someone and expect them to make your life better. We easily forget why we have conflicts around the world. We have them because the people pretending to be angles turn out to be your worst nightmare. Zambians have been mocked to be very docile because we make the same mistakes over and over. If we get a leader who is on the people’s side, they term in office become very short because these harvester have become sophisticated on how to loot. They use our weak courts to bypass the owners of the land and strangle our visionless leaders with fake promises of investment. We have some of the world’s best mines with nothing to show for them.

  5. @Tkki, how do you measure success of a country? I would argue that Zambia has achieved the biggest success of all which is being at peace with itself and its neighbours and having sovereign rights over its land. Development should never be confused with success. Capitalism only works if you are the dominating force and at the moment only two countries are very successful at it and they happen to be the outgoing and the emerging superpowers. How do you get investors on the right terms when business is being done behind closed doors? You seem to know what these terms are so please share with the rest of us so that we can back you if the terms are truly favourable to the people of Zambia.

This Brian Mundubile talking 10 years in govt after auctioning off the country to Chinese…Chambia is now their toilet even caught our women all thanks to PF, they own large chunks of land…which Zambians did you empower in the last 10 years apart from your business partner Faith Musonda.

  9. With due respect, Kaiser Zulu shouldn’t masquerade on this forum as on high moral ground when frequently being dragged to courts of law for civil and criminal offences. So we remind you to pay $13,000 you owe Mr Stephen Mulembeta Samuteba. You promised to pay this money within 30 days from 24th March 2022. Free advice to Mr Zulu is that should pay by selling those personalised made shoes, watches and suits from Dubai. Don’t dare ACC to avoid crying ‘persecution’ as a song by most PF thieves.

  10. Chiti muluba – But your Zambian millionaires would rather invest in haulage…all these resources are there in NW but no one come to invest or has the financial intellengce to obtain funds from the market.

  11. Muna Dekhane – You’ve post on LT for a long time now you should know the difference between an impostor and the real deal.

  12. HH should never relent on this mission to launch new frontiers for Zambia. For once, let’s do something different. We have been going round the cycles too long, owning resources but doing nothing except to complain. Do not relent. This is breaking new ground for Zambia

  13. Foreign investors are better than being in debt worth billions with no actual results. Keep crying until you start dropping from hunger and disease

  14. I think those still reading outdated economics text books should throw them in the lower Zambezi so that the prospective mining company can discover them when they start mining in this protected area.

  15. Zambians have proved to be very good technologists in southern Africa. If a copper mining state such as Chile in South America can rely on their own indigenous people to operate the mines, Zambians are also capable of running our mines. All that we require is for our universities to train sharp and well-trained administrators in mining industries, Chapwa. We do not need foreigners to feast on our natural resources.

  16. It is only when us voters become enlightened on how to scrutnise aspiring candidates that there will be hope of electing a parliament and president that is truly interested in the aspirations of the citizens. Us Zambian voters will one day reach that level. We also need NGO that can help to sensitise citizens on the this subject. I feel we are learning every day

  17. Parastatal companies employed a lot of Zambians from independence days to 1989.But Privatisation of the 1990 sold mwaiseni stores,ZCBC chain stores,INDECO group of companies,Livingstone motor assembly,Ndola Copper Refinery,Dunlop,Zambia Consolidated Copper mines,Mulungushi investments,Kafue Textiles,Kalulushi Clay Brick,Ndola lime Copper,Zamefa,Chilanga Cement factory,Circuit Holdings,Techpro holdings,Niec stores,ROP ltd,UBZ ,Eagle Travel, only to mention a few.Many of these companies which were privatised went under.The Ndola Industrial Area non functioning is a living example.

  18. Has this ichipuba Mundubile forgotten how PF sold Zambia’s wealth to foreigners thru massive debts and Eurobond default?

  20. Mundubile is forgetting that the MMD vehicles Sata impounded where only recently given back to the party. PF killed MMD.

  21. PF borrowed a lot of money on our behalf, only to keep it in their pockets. Which mines and industries did they leave in the hands of Zambians and are successful?
