Dog fight erupts in former ruling party; wither PF?

Share

By Prince Bill M. Kaping’a Political/Social Analyst

A while back, we opined that considering the way things are panning out in the former ruling party whereby they are dilly-dallying to go for a party convention to usher in new leaders; we had a hunch Edgar Lungu might just pull a quick one and step forward to challenge President Hichilema in the much anticipated 2026 general elections! Well……very few people took us seriously, of course.

In what might appear as being vindicated, a voice note has just surfaced on several social media platforms in which senior party stalwarts, GBM and Chishimba Kambwili, are heard vowing that they wouldn’t allow MMD members such as Dr. Chitalu Chilufya or indeed Brian Mundubile to wrestle the party from the true owners of the party that really suffered for it.

“Don’t allow yourself to be used by those people from MMD,” GBM can be heard warning. “I’d rather a leader emerges from amongst the 3 of us (meaning GBM, Miles Sampa and Chishimba Kambwili) And now these stories we are getting that they want to make you Secretary General….”

“Forget about those idiots!” Kambwili explodes, “How can we allow someone….. Mundubile or Chitalu individuals that came as late 2026 to be president so that we can kneel before them and say, ‘Your Excellence…'”

What do we make of this?

Last Sunday, Lungu attended Church service at BIGOCA in Matero where Miles Sampa is MP. By the way, does the former president belong to any church? We get worried to see him gravitating from one church to another every day of worship.

Anyway, his sojourn in Matero wasn’t about seeking atonement for whatever transgressions, but rather taking the fight to Sampa’s backyard! Rumour has it the former president had no kind words for the area MP going to the extent of describing him as a mad man! Surely, is that the manner folks who’ve just been in the presence of the Lord be conducting themselves?

As we pointed out earlier on, it was guerrilla politics at play such that the script was clearly choreographed to make it appear as though adherents, just like many other citizens, really miss the humble leader and want him back as soon as possible to rescue them from whatever imaginable predicament.

Apparently, while those that consider themselves as the true greens are intent on defending the party from the hijackers and vowed to abandon the party altogether should anything to the contrary happen, the other camp, obviously working in cahoots with the former president, is equally eager for a showdown.

However, the later enjoys the advantage of a well lubricated financial machinery which can easily be put to greater use to buy loyalty from would-be followers in the shanty compounds, desperate for a round of Shake Shake or cheap Chitenges and T/shirts!

All in all, the party shall eventually split into two: one group that consider themselves as the true greens…..real owners of the party who may support the entity in principle and another one that Kambwili would love to refer to as Bamushanina bwali…..ragtag individuals who’ve no qualms about any values at all as long as kali mwitobo. Court issues notwithstanding, the party is in for the long haul with the final destination being absolute annihilation!

  2. What of is going through is what is expected in a democratic party. It’s never easy because you must deal with the interest if a wide spectrum of stakeholders. Avoiding these problems can lead to further extinction. What is important is how of emerges out if these problems. Zambia still needs pf to provide checks and balances in the absence of a strong opposition party. It looks like the writer would be be happy with the sudden demise of pf. That would lead to more problems in this country because the upnd would be free to do what the want regardless of it’s negative impacts in the citizenary.

  3. PF BE VERY CAREFUL AND STOP THAT KIND OF MISBEHAVING, PUT THE PARTY FIRST AND NOT INDIVIDUAL INTREST.IF YOU DIVIDE THAT WILL BE YOUR END.AND YOU WILL SEE HOW YOU ARE GOING TO BE PERSECUTED.IT WILL WASE AND YOU WILL REGRET NEVER TO HAVE DONE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.ORGANISE YOURSELVES AND DONT BE SELFISH.STOP BEING CHILDISH,PUT YOUR CHILDISH INTREST ASIDE WE NEED YOU PF PLEASE PLEASE THINK ABOUT ICHIPANI MAY GOD HELP YOU PLEASE.

  4. Ba kawa lala, soon they will start exposing themselves. Now we know why none of them get arrested for corruption. It’s because they are all in it together. They are fighting for your tax money.

  6. People with one voice will elect a leader of their choice. People’s voice determines the way. People cherish discipline, peace, progress and development. Discipline is key factor for our nation to develop.

  7. The UPND will do well to concentrate on service delivery as that’s what will count when they face the people in 2026. Well, whom am I for them to take my advice?

  8. Even dora the explora is from MMD although she is not vying fir any major post in PF but greyford monde is and he is also not a true green but came from upnd.

    • Sata from MMD from UNIP from ZANC
      Lungu from UPND from MMD from UNIP
      Inonge from UNIP to MMD to PF
      etc etc
      Everyone is from somewhere.
      We have very narrow minded politicians. That is why we cant develop. People should escape their tunnel vision and see things broadmindedly.

  9. The author is being excited for no reason. What has ECL got to do with affair? He further alleges that this fight vindicates his earlier prediction about ECL coming back to the helm of the PF. How does this connect to the same?

  10. I think Miles sampa will carry the day……..

    He will be however morroned in opposition with any glimmer if hope comming in 2031……..

    • Andrew it’s a dead party. When a Zambian ruling party is rejected it goes into extinction. Ask any political scientist.
