Has Mr. Lungu gone bananas?

Soon after Mr. Nakachinda was appointed as Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General by then Vice President of the party Mr. Given Lubinda, the two hatched up a Lungu agenda named “alebwelelapo” meant to prop up political fortunes of the beleaguered former president Lungu which continued to plummet at an alarming rate. Later, in an interview with the News Diggers and carried in its paper of 22nd September 2023, Mr. Nakachinda alleged that the “alebwelelapo” agenda did not come from him or PF but from the people of Zambia and that the PF was just backing it. It is therefore at this moment not wrong to assume that the duo did present this agenda to Mr. Lungu and judging from his rhetoric and relentless rantings of late, he must have welcomed the agenda.

Mistakenly, Mr. Lungu now thinks he is popular because he has heard the “alebwelelapo” agenda mainly from his surrogates, carefully planted across the country to sing this song. He has also forgotten that this same “alebwelelapo” song was in top gear and part of his campaign strategy in 2021 elections but the same did not save him from the humiliating defeat that befell him. But he is consoled by the fact that he still has the “kasaka ka ndalama” that he obtained when he was Republican President but blinded by the fact that those promoting the “alebwelelapo” agenda are his surrogates who may have benefitted from him through handouts or through errands to do the unimaginable during his rule as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. They know he has the “kasama ka ndalama” and for some time now they have not received handouts and hence quickly welcomed his coming back to active politics so that handouts can find their way to their pockets and homes. They have joined the chorus sorely for the purpose of sharing the “kasaka ka ndalama”

Unfortunately, the man is so unpopular that he cannot even manage to successfully contest an election at presidential level against the incumbent, President Hakainde Hichilema. Mr. Hichilema is now reported to be 10 times more popular than the miserable and shameless Mr. Lungu despite the economic and financial traps that he left behind for Mr. Hichilema to get trapped.

It is now clear that he is very unpopular and cannot win an election against President Hichilema. He can therefore save face and try at a lower level against me for a seat in the National Assembly. I hereby challenge him to an election duel with me in Chawama Constituency just to prove a point that he is very unpopular and cannot “bwelelapo” even ku Chawama.

To pave way for the contest, and if he is not scared, I ask him to ask his daughter Tasila to resign as MP so that a by-election is held ASAP if he is man enough. I want to waya him very badly so that he goes into political oblivion once and for all. Making headlines in the print and mainstream electronic media outlets and social media will not save him from a humiliating election armageddon to come.

He has never apologized to the people of Zambia and he has been a political nuisance and very nauseating of late. His rule was a reign of terror, highly corrupt, and there was a breakdown of law and order (total anarchy) where we saw PF cadres becoming more powerful than the law enforcement officers. Aikona man. I think the man has gone bananas.

  1. Lungu should just enjoy his retirement. Some of us are happy with this fresh air and dont even want to see him after his departure. We are busy looking for newer faces. John Sangwa why dont you jump into the arena? Kufuka Kufuka??? You guys stop sleeping.

    • I go bananas when I see that goalkeeper Eunice Sakala. Kamanga drives me crazy by forcing his niece into real tournament games. She never even make for friendlies, only sabotage big final games.
      World cup, you bring in Eunice Sakala, Olympics you go get her again.

    • I actually want Edgar Lungu in politics so that Zambians do not pay his retirement benefits. So run, Edgar Lungu, run.

  2. First, I would like to start by correcting Mr. Leemans L. Nyirenda. Changwa Lungu has not banana, he has always been banana. I just don’t understand what the heck Mr. M.C.Sata was thinking. This man has never had any political self-esteem, nothing presidential about though he did occupy the office. Looking at Changwa, he’s an individual with insecurities about what he stands for, he lacks confidence and now has feelings of unworthiness unless getting back to the state house, Kikikikikikik.

  5. Indeed guys the man is sick. He has no sense of judgement. I even doubt if the constitution does allow him because he already served his two terms. That is why i think Nkana pa Kitwe is right. He has already gone bananas

    • A sick man Changwa and his clones are just interested in Political power, to dominate or otherwise have impact on the Zambian citizens life worse than they did last time. They should not underestimate the power scale of Zambian youths.

  6. THE CROOKS ARE NOT ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN PF, UKA NOR ECL, BUT IN THE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY WHICH THE CROOKS BELIEVE ECL HAS ; BELIEVED HIDDEN AND STILL PACKED IN UKWA . THE CROOKS ARE NOW VERY BROKE BECAUSE THEY CAN’T STEAL ANYMORE. THE ONLY HOPE IS TO CHEAT ECL, WITH POLITICAL POPULARITY AND PERSUADE HIM TO STAND AND BE COMPELLED TO RELEASE THE MUCH NEEDED MONEY

  8. You are totally right. I sometime feel ashamed to think ECL was our President. HH will get his second term because he has done well under the circumstances

  9. HH is dropping the ball. Botswana is crying about having no place to store its elephants as their numbers have grown beyond control. Botswana recently even gave Angola 8000 free elephants. HH needs to go Botswana, get 10 000 elephants and put them in Kafue and Musi O Tunya National parks where their numbers were decimated by poaching. After that, he needs to hire more game wardens, equip them with drones, and hold them accountable for protecting those elephants. If Botswana wants to give 20 000 elephants, even better.

  10. ……….

    Lungu is the parapet master, he is playing all those fooools following money he has………

    Lungu is not stupyyd……..

    Lungu wants to cause enough panic with perceived mass support to frighten GRZ to negotiate a deal to back off corruption investigations of the lungu family……..

  13. The author is spot on.
    ECL is not popular and become the president of Zambia by a combination of luck and electoral manipulation due to incumbency.
    Now he is facing reality. A few hangers on (most of whom are in court for criminal matters) are cheating him about his popularity.
