PF fumes over “Kutumpa” statement

Share

Zambians know that former republican President Edgar Chagwa Lungu (ECL) ‘Tatumpa’ (he is not stupid) and actually they are the ones who are pushing further ‘ the Alebwelelapo’ agenda which has continued to unsettle the ruling party especially after the huge turn out of PF members on Women and Youth Day Celebrations,’’ the PF has said

PF Copperbelt Media Director said Zambians were pushing the ‘Alebwelelapo’ agenda because the UPND leadership which was claiming to be more wiser and intelligent than the PF leadership of ECL has actually failed to provide leadership, but has instead plunged the country into serious poverty and hunger.

Mr Moola was reacting to President Hakainde Hichilema slighting his predecessor, describing insinuations that the former head of State would be returning to power as ‘ Kutumpa Uko’ (That is being stupid.)

Mr Moola said the PF was disappointed and angered by the disparaging remarks from the President, but was not surprised because the turn-out of the PF members and its sympathisers on Women and Youth Day Celebrations had unsettled the ruling party and its leadership.

He said the PF was wondering what kind of a coincidence it was that the disparaging remarks against Mr Lungu from President Hichilema had come a day after the suspected UPND cadres ran riot beating up PF youths who had outnumbered the ruling party youths.

Well it is sad that after suspected UPND cadres beat up PF youths, the next day, the UPND President who is also republican President goes full throttle to call ECL stupid because of Alebwelelapo agenda. We expected the President to condemn the violence but he is being quiet.

“Anyway, we are not worried because Zambians know that ECL Tatumpa (ECL is not stupid).No, they know he is not stupid and this is why they are the ones pushing the Alebwelalapo Agenda. If ECL is stupid, he should face him in 2026 so that Zambians make a decision on who is stupid,’’ Mr Moola said.

Mr Moola said President Hichilema’s disparaging remarks against President Edgar Lungu was a clear indication that he has no message for the people of the Copperbelt and is now trying to save his face by attacking.

He said the UPND might have succeeded in stopping the PF youths from attending the International Youth Day in various parts of the country through violence, but the reality on the ground is that, the popularity of the ruling party is diminishing at a fast rate while the PF was becoming popular on the ground.

Mr Moola said the UPND should be wise enough to get worried and possibly find a reason and solution, as to why, its popularity has taken a nose-dive in less than two years in government, instead of hiring thugs to attack PF youths after realising that they had been outnumbered at the International Youth Day.

Mr Moola was reacting to International Youth Day which turned violent leaving hundreds of PF youths brutally injured after suspected UPND cadres caused mayhem in Kitwe, Kasama, Ndola and other parts of the country.

In an interview in Kitwe at the weekend, Mr Moola said it was shameful that the New Dawn administration of President Hakainde Hichilema which promised a better future for the youths has lamentably failed to fulfil its promise, but was instead using the youths for political violence.

During campaigns for 2021 elections, President Hichilema spoke highly about the youths, but after winning the elections, there is little or nothing to point at for the youths. Even from the Black Mountain, youths were sidelined while others ended up suffering injuries as they tried to jump on moving trucks.

“This UPND has no plan, no regard for youths and will only use them for destructive activities like political violence. But, one thing which is a reality is that violence is not a solution to high cost of loving. No. UPND succeeded in stopping PF youths from attending the Youth Day celebrations, but the reality is that PF is getting stronger every day. Those planning ill about the PF will have themselves to blame,’’ Mr Moola said

  1. To be honest with everyone, the version of Úkutumpa’ is promising people cheaper fuel, fertilizer, mealie-meal, to induce dollar to go down and after being voted into office you keep quite without any explanation.

    • ukutumpa is you not knowing ECL government first to default loans they got which has left government with no money to subsides commodities, you talk of fuel explain the $597million arrears on fuel. how can ECL and team kongola everywhere even locally maamba there was nkongole which HH and team had to negotiate

  4. What belligerent language to be used by any leader! Unless he doesn’t want peace. In Chamboli where I grew up that word triggered off riots.
    Anyone who knows Bemba culture will tell you that the word ‘ukutumpa’ most often ends any dialogue, escalating things to blows ne fibaka. If you want to be a leader you never use such language on peers unless you are Idi Amin.

  5. Pretense like lies and violence have short legs. And all are characteristics ofa desperate man like Hakainde. Hakainde has no idea who are his employers.

  6. YES ‘KUUMPA ‘. HOUW DO YOU PLAN GASSING YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS? HWHY SHOULD YOU START PLANNING AND INFORMING THE NATION OF JAILING YOUR FELLOW CANDIDATE TO A LIFE SENTENCE , WHY SHOULD YOU PLAN A SERIES OR FAKE SYNDICATES AND DISPLAS, MATCHES, DEMONSTRATIONS IN PURSUIT TO RAISE FALSEHOOD AGAINST THE RULING PARTY YES KUTUMPA SANA. WHEN YOU WERE IN GOVERNMENT YOU ENJOED AND NEVER BOTHERED ABOUT TRBE AND REGIONAL BALANCING AND YOU ENJOYED THAT WAY. NOW THINGS HAVE BEEN BALANCED BUT THEY STILL WISHH TO BE THE MAJORITY IN AT ALL LVEL BECAUSE THEY TAKE THEMSELVES MORE SUPERIOR THAN OTHERS AND THEY ARE NOT HAPPYTHEY ARE NOW BEING RULEDBY A DIFFERENT TRBE. YES KUTUMPA SANA

  7. kkkkkkk simple to make a judgement, simple equation.What was the price of salad,fuel,mealie meal,cost of doing business,what was the rate of a kwacha to a dollar before taking over,if things have gone up then you know the answer,if they have gone down still you know the answer.kkkkkk I LIKE THE LATE MADIBA MANDELA MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. 27 YEARS IN PRISON.

  8. Clever and intelligence has a double meaning in politics then in academic circles.
    The PF was clever and intelligent when they were in power. Their Leader did not know the difference between a Lawyer and the President of the Republic of Zambia and he allowed a lot of illegalities in PF government
