ABOUT MEMBERSHIP IN EEP, WE ARE DOING SMART POLITICS

eep
A number of people have been asking on how they can join our party, Economic and Equity Party (EEP). I would like to state that, membership into EEP is open to all, especially the younger ones from the age of 14 going up. Anyone in good standing in society is free to join, especially new political entrants.

EEP stands a high chance of scooping 2021 general elections in spite of it’s humble beginning, since it was founded by mostly young people without resources.

Due to the humble beginning of EEP, the party faces more challenges than those that have started on the strength of some form of capital, either politically or financially.

However, we are very confident to to form Govt in 2021 based on a number of factors and our strategies. Our strength is our passion and strategy.

Ideally it is not advisable to discuss strategies in public, but since this is politics, we will discuss some of the strategies so that some interested parties would follow and appreciate our movement.

EEP IS A MOVEMENT
Firstly, we want everyone to understand that our Party is a movement and not a revolution. Our Movement is towards political change, meaning we want to change they way politics has been done in the Country.

Therefore, people must expect to see something different from what they are used to in politics. This change includes people, we want new people instead of the same old politicians who have messed up our Countries in different party regalia.

We want to change the mentality of looking at politics as a means of survival (cadrism) because this attitude is parasitic, which feeds on public resources.

If you stop for a moment and ask, where do the PF get the money to look after their cadres. PF have no businesses to fund all their political activities yet they have so many cadres to look after after.

Due to this political pressure, the PF (and other ruling parties before) have allowed many of their cadres to create illegal taxing schemes in Markets, Bust Stations, streets, tendering, including setting up of meetings to meet the President. This kind of political life will have to end as EEP comes in power.

NOT EVERYONE SHOULD BE A MEMBER OF EEP

From the background given (cadrism) we don’t want to run a very big political infrastructure, because it has a cost implication and a source of confusion. Therefore, we only need a seizable membership.

Currently, the Country has a problem where by, everyone who discusses national issues or politics, is identified as a politician and a member of a political party based on their opinion on national issues.

Because of this mentality civil servants have been laid off for having spoken against certain policies, accusing them of being political while the PF are appointing their bona-fide members as civil servants and they they do not just talk politics, but they campaign openly and use Govt resources for political activities.

Therefore, we must differentiate between membership and supporters. We don’t need many members but supporters who will vote for us in 2021.

It must also be noted that, being a member does not give one, an advantage in terms of opportunities because we are promoting “EQUITY” (which is part of our name).

All Zambians will have chance to actualize their potentials, regardless of their political affiliation or opinions. We will embrace criticisms and reward whistle-blowers.

EEP members will have opportunity to be adopted to contest elections. Therefore, unless one is interested in vying for political office, he/she should not be bothered to be a member of EEP but can support us or any other party of their choice. THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY IS ALL ABOUT.

Adoption of candidates will be done at local level (decentralized), the NEC will have nothing to do with adoption apart from ensuing adoption certificates. Those who want to contest any election anywhere, should tell the local people and not the President, because I will have not influence adoptions.

EEP SUBSCRIPTION

All members must pay up the subscription of K120 per year (K10) per month. Those who can afford to pay more, can do so, while those you can prove that, they have no means to pay subscription, they will be exempted, because we want to include the poor in leadership, especially women.

Members will carry a unique membership card bearing a serious unique number which will be attached to the bio-data. The membership card will have to be paid for at K50. (suggestions on the outlook of the Card and printing methods are welcome for possible contract to supply them. If you are interested, you can call on me 0966888936).

Receipt books and membership cards are not ready, yet, and we are not collecting any money, until everything is in place, for accountability purposes. Unless someone wants to donate something.

However, all those interested in being members, can send us their names, age, profession (if any), town and phone numbers. Send to 0966888936. Or better still go and like our page: https://web.facebook.com/eep2021/ and inbox us the details.

Our political environment is not good at the moment, therefore, we are not revealing our members because we don’t want them to be targeted or victimized of disadvantaged by the PF govt.

If you are interested but scared of abuse, please just send us your details and you will come up at the right time. We ask for patience from all those who had sent details earlier, because we have recorded them and we will get back to them when the receipt books and cards are ready for them to pay.

THANKS PRESIDENT LUNGU FOR MEETING THE BISHOPS, IT IS NOW UP TO HH TO RECIPROCATE AS HE MEETS THE SAME BISHOPS. LETS ALL BE HOPEFUL

WhatsApp Image 2017-07-14 at 18.01.02
President Lungu must be commended for meeting the Catholic Bishops today, who a few weeks ago admonished him for his dictatorial tendencies. President reacted emotionally to the observations of some Catholic Bishops, particularly Archbishop Mpundu ( also recognize other Churches that have expressed similar sentiments) However, all that should be put behind and focus on the way forward.

This meeting of the President and the Bishops open doors to restoration of peace among political parties, especially between the UPND and the PF.

This is the best that could have ever happened in regards to the impulse that has been there between the two political parties, but has sucked-in other political players and some citizens.

I am very happy with Archbishop Mpundu for once again standing for what is right, in spite of whoever could have disagreed with him. Congratulations Your Grace, you are such an inspiration to many, particularly myself.

President Edgar Chagwa Lungu​, has his weaknesses, and I have brought out a number of issues where I feel he has gone wrong, but today, he has made me see that silver-lining which I saw when I supported him in the last elections (don’t get it twisted I am not PF but giving credit where it is due)

I never said President Lungu is perfect, but I called him a lesser evil, meaning, he has weaknesses but at times you can get something good from him. Indeed that good has come out today, by his graciousness to meet the Bishops. He could have chosen not to do so, but he did it.

I am grateful, first of all as a citizen of this Country and as leader of Economic and Equity Party (EEP). All well meaning members of our Party will surely agree with me (our members are free to disagree, with me, on certain issues, that is freedom to hold an opinion on any issue)

The Bishops held a fruitful discussions with the head of state leading to President Edgar Lungu granting the Zambia Council for Catholic Bishops -ZCCB- access to incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to discuss dialogue and reconciliation.

This follows a request by ZCCB President Archbishop TELESPHORE MPUNDU for the President facilitate access to Mr. HICHILEMA for the council to emphasise the need for him to engage in genuine dialogue and commit to a civil political process in addressing matters of national concern.

The issue now remains to President Hakainde Hichilema​ (HH). This is a golden opportunity for HH to show magnanimity to the nation. This impasse is no longer just between the PF and the UPND, because it has brought in all range of issues and the peace of this nation is at stake.

President HH, must drop all the pride and self-centeredness, and be patriotic to do that which is appropriate for this Country.

2016 general elections are behind us and whatever scavenging one can do to salvage anything, is as good as useless, because Edgar Lungu’s Presidency cannot be nulled. It is time to move on for the sake of this nation.

What Zambians, and indeed Bishops want, is peace and harmony for this nation, political squabbles are retrogressive and endanger our democracy.

As the leader of EEP I look forward to a national dialogue where all political parties can engage and iron-out whatever conflicts, then move on as One Zambia, One Nation.

I invite all peace loving Zambians to pray for the positive engagement of the Bishop with HH and the subsequent meetings their of.

I hope my brother Percy Chato will provide a good room, probably a Boardroom at any of these correction services, after all HH is only a suspect, so he can attend a meeting in a conducive room with Bishops since they will be many.

I would also like to advise my colleagues in the UPND to drop all their cheap propaganda against Govt and the PF relating to HH. Stop posting fake stories that Govt wants to kill HH, no one wants to kill HH, otherwise, he would have been dead by now. Some of these propaganda adds to nothing but fuels the tension which is not helpful to HH.

We all have to be positive and seek peaceful means, which the Bishops have initiated, otherwise President Lungu will just back away (remember, the man can be emotional, if you have observed him). It will not help if we UNJUSTIFIABLY attack the PF and Edgar Lungu.

Yes, we can criticize but objectively not some of the malice and lies I see on social media. I also propose that we drop the #FREE_HH campaigns for now, because it might be a subject of discussion at some point. We have tried it, it has failed let us see what can come out of this initiative by the Bishops.

HH must also be advised to stop talking for now. Those statements from Prison are not helpful in as much as he has the right to express himself.

I feel like this is our only hope to resolve this and if we blow it up, it may be difficult to blame Ba Lungu. he has done a commendable job, let’s encourage him.

I want to come and contest 2021 elections in peace, so that I can work with everyone when I am in State House. One of my goals is to unite this Country and heal all wounds that many people have suffered through loss of loved ones, injuries, loss of property or jobs, or limbs, emotional stress and fear of unknown. This nation needs healing and I am for that challenge.

HOW SOME INTERNATIONAL MEDIA PERCEIVE PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU

Edgar Lungu on Press Conference

Zambian President Edgar Lungu is not a dictator, and nor does he want to be.

That’s his version, at least, and he’s sticking to it. ‘Zambia is the most accomplished democracy in this region or the whole of Africa. If this is dictatorship, there is no democracy in Africa,’ he told a press conference in Lusaka last week. ‘I know that people think I am targeting political players. I am not targeting any political player. I am only trying to bring sanity.’

Lungu’s actions, however, tell a different story. This year has seen him accrue more and more power at the expense of local media, civil society and opposition parties. Three incidents in particular stand out.

The first came on 11 April, when opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema was arrested at his home. Hichilema and his family took refuge inside a safe room while heavily armed police laid siege to the residence, using tear gas in an attempt to smoke him out. Hichilema alleges that members of his household staff were tortured.

Eventually Hichilema was persuaded to emerge. He was charged with treason for allegedly endangering the president’s life in a traffic incident at a cultural festival. The charge is exactly as ridiculous as it sounds, and seems clearly designed to sideline the popular opposition leader.

The second came in mid-June, when the speaker of the National Assembly unilaterally suspended 48 members of Parliament belonging to Hichilema’s party, the United Party for National Development (UPND), without pay or voting rights for a month. Their offence was to have boycotted the president’s state of the nation address; because, they said, they did not recognise the president’s legitimacy.

There is no room for this kind of dissent in Lungu’s Zambia, apparently; no space for the lively debate and disagreement that is the hallmark of successful democracies.

And finally, last week came the most ominous development of all. In response to a fire at a popular Lusaka market, Lungu declared the threat of a state of emergency. This gave him special powers to deal with it, including the ability to suspend Parliament entirely, restrict freedom of movement, arrest potential troublemakers and impose a curfew.

The declaration effectively allows Lungu to circumvent all remaining checks and balances envisaged by Zambia’s constitution.

As any student of history will know, declaring a state of emergency, or the threat of one, is a dictator’s favourite tool. This is especially true when the pretext for such a declaration is so flimsy: if Zambia is such an ‘accomplished democracy’, surely its police and judiciary should be capable of investigating the fire in Lusaka without the need for the president to resort to such measures?

Given these worrying signs of Lungu’s growing authoritarianism, attention turns to what can be done to prevent him from turning into a fully fledged dictator. And if that really is his end goal, who is going to stop him?

Domestically, the president has successfully hobbled the official opposition by detaining Hichilema and suspending members of Parliament. He has also succeeded in weakening local media; most flagrantly, in June last year authorities shut down independent newspaper The Post – again on a flimsy pretext. Its editor and owner, Fred M’membe, remains in hiding.

There is still some fight left in civil society, however, with several prominent institutions – including the Civil Society Constitution Agenda and the Law Association of Zambia – criticising the declaration of the threat of a state of emergency. Some of the country’s highly influential church groups have also voiced their disapproval.

Clearly Lungu is not going to have it all his own way. However, given that his term in office runs until 2021, and given the special emergency powers he has arrogated to himself, it’s hard to see what his local critics can do to stop him.

More levers of power are available to the international community. Zambia’s economy is in a rut, and the country remains heavily reliant on international partners for investment, aid and other forms of financing. But of these powers, few are speaking out.

South Africa, which wields significant influence in Lusaka, has been deafeningly silent, seemingly preoccupied with its own leadership troubles. China, a major investor in Zambia’s natural resource sector, can hardly condemn the muzzling of political opponents given its record at home. And the United States has offered little more than platitudes.

Another potential pressure point comes in the form of the International Monetary Fund, which is in the process of negotiating a $1.3 billion credit facility with Zambia. It’s money the Zambian government desperately needs, but should it come with good governance strings attached?

Lungu remains defiant. ‘If the IMF thinks we have gone beyond the norms of good governance and democracy, they are free to go. We cannot sacrifice the Zambian people at the altar of economic expediency,’ he told last week’s press briefing.

Nonetheless, the economy remains the most obvious way in which the international community can reverse Zambia’s backsliding. ‘This is a vulnerable government with an economy that is fast running out of money,’ says Nic Cheeseman, Professor of Democracy and International Development at the University of Birmingham.

The question, he says, is whether the will is there to do so. ‘Right now, it does not seem to be the case. However, the IMF deal is not yet done, and I would think that some pressure is being brought behind the scenes both within Zambia and without for a compromise to be found.’

What worries Cheeseman is that Lungu sees what Mugabe has been able to do in Zimbabwe – ‘take his country to the brink of ruin and hang on regardless’ – and that this has emboldened the president to go down a path from which it is hard to return.

ZAMBIAN POLITICS CAN BE SO DEVIOUS AT TIMES – SO FRUSTRATING

Me - watching Two and half men

FROM CHILUFYA TAYALI’S FACEBOOK PAGE

I am not a movie person, I am more into music and I love dancing a lot. But, once in a while I sit to watch “Drama and Romantic” movies to which take me away from my miserable reality and melt my heart.

I watch all movies recommend to me by my children, include the bloodletting investigative series such as CSI, which my eldest daughter watches, or Cartoon watched by my youngest girl.

However, when I feel bored and frustrated by political machinations, like right now, I watch some comedies. My favorite is “Two and Half Men” because, Charlie Sheen, depicts the irresponsible guy I would be if I did not care about other people and morality.

The character of Charlie in “Two and Half men” is a man who does not care about others, he just lives for himself. Honestly, at times I wish I would just be like that other than care so much and getting worked out by what is happening around me.

Imagine, today, the Veep will present a motion in Parliament to debate the State of Emergency, of the second degree, (article 31) to fulfill what is in the Constitution that, Parliament should vote over the declaration within 7 days for it to be extended to 3 months.

Bo Inonge and the PF stooges will be hoodwinking the citizens that, President Lungu is a democrat because he is following what is provided in the Constitution – total crookedness to cover up the dictatorship of Edgar Lungu.

Our parliament is not independent, because our MPs do not represent the people’s WILL at critical moments, such as this one. They vote according to the WILL of their President.

Besides that, about 46/47 UPND will not be in the House, though, they would not make a difference even if they were there because the PF are the majority.

I think I am frustrated by this kind of democracy, because it is not a functional democracy, it is just on paper, actioned through crookedness. Unfortunately, I can’t do anything about it, so I just have to sit and watch “Two and Half Men”.

Leave that alone, and look at the cheap politics of President Lungu, the man is declaring State of Emergency to cripple our rights, especially in politics, but he is engaging a high gear of 2021 campaign.

President Lungu has started campaign for 2021 and he does not want anyone to compete with him, this is why he has declared this State of Emergency prescribed in article 31.

After putting HH where he wants, he is now going to Southern Province to woo the Southerners to vote for him in 2021. He has even offloaded developmental plan for Southern Province so that he can be appreciated as a good leader, after putting HH in prison.

Unfortunately, yet again, I can do nothing about it. Edgar Lungu has all the powers and people like me are just like small ants which he can crush using the police under the disabled leadership of Kakoma Kanganja. It’s so frustrating.

Anyway, it is just a matter of time, come 2021, people of Zambia will not give President Lungu a vote, no matter how crooked he may become, politically. I am very sure of that, 2021 President Lungu is going and I might just take over or someone else, but not Ba Lungu.

ANOTHER CHIPANTEPANTE OF THE PF, NOW THEY DON’T NEED IMF MONEY BECAUSE BA LUNGU WANTS TO SILENCE US – POLITICAL DEFICIENCY

Mutati at the IMF
It is a comedy of governance of President Edgar Lungu and his “Yes Bwana” cabinet. Felix Mutati must be frustrated but he has to choose between being out of employment or say those two golden words, “YES BWANA”, which gives you a job, a Toyata Land-cruiser VX, huge allowances (eg K1,500 per sitting in Parliament plus other lucrative allowances), the you have fat salary topped up with Chinese kick backs in hard cash dollars.

Immediately Felix Mutati came in to help the economic and strategic disoriented, but corruptly competent PF government, he said that our treasury is stressed and needed some liquidity injection to resuscitate the economy.

To that effect, Felix Mutati got the blessings of his boss when he spoke of seeking IMF bailout program involving 1.6 Billion.

High powered discussions have been going on with the IMF at Tax-payers cost. This includes the trip to New York by Felix Mutati with his delegation to negotiate the deal.

Mutati’s team comprised of national planning minister Lucky Mulusa, Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet – Finance and Economic development Christopher Mvunga, Secretary to the Treasury Fredson Yamba, Bank of Zambia governor Dr Denny Kalyalya, Ministry of Finance permanent secretary – economic management Mukuli Chikuba.

Zambia has invested so much in trying to secure this loan amidst concerns that our debt is becoming unsustainable.

Unfortunately, all the efforts by Felix Mutati now hangs in a balance because his boss, has forgotten why they embarked on the project. President Lungu has damned the IMF to get-out if they don’t agree with his dictatorship kind of rule.

Lucky Mulusa knows too well to mess around with President Lungu, in spite of being part of the delegation, he is the first among the group to say, we don’t really need IMF.

But Ba Mulusa why did you go through the trouble and making us pay for your first class ticket, expensive hotels, nice foods and allowances, if we did not really need this money.

President Lungu is threatened by his deteriorating political fortune at the time power he has just started testing how sweet power is.

A man who at one point had to chew the money of his client as a lawyer and got suspended, is now the most powerful man in the land, with pecks going multiplying in Millions, like magic.

He has the Police all over him and at his command, to arrest anyone and charge the person with treason. But even better now, thanks to article 30 and 31 which he has discovered, he can detain us at will without recourse to the Court.

Power can be so sweet, the man even has a Challenger jet to himself, free everything including Presidential parties with his like-minds friends (undeclared dictators).

Edgar for 2021To sustain his power, against a serious political tide that threatens his 2021 bid which he started immediately after winning 2016 elections, President Lungu is playing systematic legal stints to silence his opponents.

Our Constitution is being exploited to find any loophole to clear whatever hurdle, to clear all opposition within PF and outside,so that 2021 will be a guaranteed victory.

Serious criminal charges and Presidential declarations are being taken maximized in the guise of sorting out suspected criminals, who have been identified as the opposition, yet there are more suspected criminals in PF than in the opposition.

Unfortunately our governance systems are also very vulnerable to abuse by the President such that, they can be fired if they try to be as independent. Many people have already been fired. Those who have protection from the Constitution like Judges are also not spared, just like Mutembo Nchito was taken out for a more user friendly DPP Lilian Fulata.

People are scared to lose jobs, the Chief Justice is not even responding to some citizens queries yet the only protection we have in the democracy, are the courts. Where will Zambians go because even parliament is not for citizens but PF.

All this is about MAKING SURE EDGAR LUNGU GOES THROUGH IN 2021, and it does not matter at what cost, including IMF bailout, people’s rights and of course, if possible people disappearing like the President said at his Press Conference that, some of these people being a nuisance, according to him, would have disappeared if it was in other Countries. I guess the President is wishing such would happen here.

Many Zambians will suffer in this 2021 bid of Edgar Lungu because, efforts are no that instead of people’s welfare, which makes President Lungu politically deficient. Politicians impress people and in turn they give you votes.

Somehow, I agreed with Mutati because Govt has no money to keep the economy going but President Lungu does not care about that, since he has everything for free at our expense as Tax-payers.

Nonetheless, as Economic and Equity Party (EEP) we believe that, power to rule people comes from God and no matter what one does to get power or keep it, if God has said no, it will not work. That is my disposition towards my 2021 bid.

The more President Lungu keeps on hurting Zambians through his dictatorship kind of rule, manipulating the constitution and institutions of Governance, the more he is getting closer to the exit door of power.

Come 2021, Zambians will have to decide who will lead them, regardless of what President Lungu does and if he continues on this trajectory, the stone rejected by the builders will be the cornerstone of this Country, and this can be anyone, including “TAYALI – NI TOUCH AND GO”

MY REFLECTION ON THE THREATENED STATE OF EMERGENCY

img_0075
I have had so many interactions (questions) on my position in relation to the Threatened State of Emergency (TSOE), let me take time to give my points in written.

Is TSOE the same as a State Of Emergency (SOE)?

Legally it is not, because these are two separate articles but in application the line is very thin because the President assumes powers to deal with situations and rights of people as he sees it fit, which is susceptible to abuse in both situations.

Therefore, TSOE is as bad as a SOE depending on what the President dictates, but Govt operatives are trying to make it look simple, however, if the regulations decided by the President catches up with you, you would feel the wrath of it the same way you would under SOE.

Is it wrong or democratic for President Lungu to declare TSOE in the manner that he has done?

Legally the President has not done anything wrong to declare TSOE because it is within his rights as President, however his decision is not democratic.

It is not everything that is legal which is democratic. For example, the TSOE will go through Parliament but there is no opposition and all MPs don’t really vote according to the wishes of the people they represent.

So this TSOE will go through according to the law (legally) but the freewill of the citizens will not go with it.

Therefore, it is folly, for President Lungu and Inonge Wina to boast of being democratic and theo-centric (ati God fearing as the Veep said in Parliament yesterday….I don’t think so).

Was the TSOE declared in good faith?

In as much as I appreciate that, the spate of fires are worrisome and of great concern, I don’t think President Lungu declared the TSOE in the interest of the nation. I think he took advantage of the situation to declare the TSOE for political expediency targeting his political opponents especially the UPND.

President Lungu and all the PF operatives, have been very quick to point fingers at the opposition that, they are setting alight properties as one way of making Govt ungovernable, without any shred of evidence apart from the statements alluded to HH or whoever could have said it, in the UPND, that, there will be Armageddon if we (UPND) lose elections.

Much as we condemn the statement of Armageddon, it is not enough to base such a decision of taking away rights of people due to what has been happening. The fact that someone may wish the other person dead, does not necessarily mean that the hater is the murderer, if death occurs to the person hated.

Of course, the hater would be the first suspect but to go round telling everybody that, he is the killer, especially if the accuser is a prominent lawyer as the PF claims Edgar Lungu is.

It is even more serious if the one accusing is the President and wants to declare the TSOE. A President needs to be above speculations because he is the last man to defend the rights of every Zambian, regardless of his political affiliation, or tribe, or disposition towards the President or his governance.

President Lungu has no evidence on which he has based this declaration, apart from speculations, that it is being done by the UPND to undermine his governance.

What could have been the best way to deal with the situation?

If I were in President Lungu’s shoes, I would have summoned the Chief of Intelligence and the Inspector General of Police to question them why we have had so many bad occurrences without them knowing whats going on or arresting anyone.

By the fact that we have had so many bad incidences without the intelligence and the Police knowing what is going on, it means that, they are lacking in their duties and I would have given them an ultimatum in which they were to give me answers otherwise, I was going to fire them.

When giving them an ultimatum, I would have asked them, to tell me all they need, to which I would have asked all relevant departments of Government to provide so that, they have no excuses (TOUCH AND GO KIND OF THING).

To back the two wings of security, I would have asked other investigative wings to get on the ground and provide me with their independent intelligent information just in case the police are also involved (at this stage, you can’t trust anyone as a President, so you need all the help you can get).

Depending on the information I would have gotten after such an initiative, then I would have made another decision before jumping into putting the whole nation under stress, even though the PF supporters seem to be relaxed that this is not for them because they have automatically been protected by the President who has accused the UPND and others, but not his own.

Will the TSOE help the Police to catch the criminals of these arsons?

I really doubt that this TSOE will help the police in anyway to catch the arsonists because, there is nothing that stopped the police from arresting or stopping the arsonist even without the TSOE.

Our police are at liberty to arrest or search anyone, at anytime they feel like, just like they did with HH and many other citizens who have been picked and detained for what even the police don’t know.

It is not the TSOE that will give them powers, they already have the powers and they use them abusively.

However, without the TSOE, the police are somehow compelled to take you to court where one can apply for bail. But with the TSOE, police bond and bail will not come in, which will make the police throw suspects in detention and forget about it, until they decide that you have suffered enough.

But the question is does keeping a person in detention grow evidence or they want to force some people to confess to crimes they did not commit in exchange of their freedom or relief?

At the end of the day, no good leader, whats to subject his citizens under such stress while he holds their rights in his hands like toys. A good leader whats his citizens to be free and at easy with everything and everyone including himself/herself.

President Lungu is being a bad leader because he wants to rule this Country in terror and not freedoms. God has given us FREEWILL, because he loves us but President Lungu he is not showing love to us otherwise he would not take away our rights.

I have given you the kind of leadership I espouse for and if you think I am a lunatic, that is your opinion and I respect that (freedoms), otherwise:

INGONGE WINA SHOULD BE QUESTIONED ABOUT THE FIRE AT CITY MARKET, HOW DID SHE KNOW IT IS SABOTAGE

Inonge Wina
The statements coming from the PF and the Govt, especially the Acting President Inonge Wina and the President who issued a statement from Addis Ababa, are very irresponsible, presumptuous and alarming.
 
The Country is highly polarized and it is unfortunate that those in Govt are not helping in reducing the tension that arises from such polarized state of the nation.
 
Those in Govt need to realize that, they are leaders for all citizens and not just their members and supporters.
 
The statements by all the PF and Govt operatives are irresponsible, because when catastrophy occurs, the first reaction is to see how the victims can be helped regardless of who they are or political affiliation.
 
So far, none of the statements is addressing possible so reparations to ameliorate the suffering that many marketeers have to go through after the inferno which gutted their properties.
 
The victims in this calamity need more than visits and political statements from the Acting President and other Govt officials.
 
It is understandable that Govt is struggling with resources to help these people, but this is an economic disaster because it involves so many people who have lost their livelihood.
 
A little something can be done and money should be found, in the same way they find it for other incidences, such as the signing of a “confused” amended Constitution and hosting foreign Presidents.
 
The statement are also presumptuous because all the Govt operatives, especially the top two (the President and his Vice), have already declared the incidence as sabotage.
WhatsApp Image 2017-07-04 at 13.09.39
 
Surprisingly, these are the same people that are refusing to accept that there is tension in the Country, yet whenever something wrong happens, they are quick to suspect foul play.
 
Much as we can’t rule out sabotage, it is wrong for anyone to make conclusions and start swearing to punish perpetrators, who may not even be there. Unless they have more information than us.
 
Worse of all, is the statement of Inspector General of Police who said, that, Zambians should not be surprised if President Edgar Lungu declares a State of Emergency.
 
What is wrong with this IG? This is another inefficiency on his part, because he is jumping into conclusions when he is supposed to be quiet and investigating the case.
 
Mr. Kanganja seems to be so biased and careless in his statements and if he thinks we will not talk in fear of him arresting us, he has it all wrong.
 
Maybe that is why he is praying for a State of Emergency so that he can abuse his powers on innocent citizens but, he should know that, not all days are Sundays. He may one day test Kabwata police cells, like I did, for abuse of power.
 
These people are alarming the situation with their threats, daily. We are living in constant fear of being arrested for anything and they are enjoy the terror otherwise they would not be talking about State of Emergency.
 
From their statements, one can not help it, but think that, they could be the ones playing all these bad things to justify their evil plots. Why are they even so quick to conclude if they don’t know what is going on.
 
It is also unfair that they keep insinuating that HH is involved in all the bad things happening out here whilst the they have conveniently put him in prison.
 
How is HH organizing all these acts of malice from prison. We may not like him but lets cut the man some slack, he is going through a lot already, even if we hate him that much.
 
There is no need for speculations, the police are there to investigate unless Kanganja has completely failed, which could be true, because up to now no one has been arrested on the violence that occurred at the graveyard and the IG has not said a word or offered a reward for anyone with information to arrest a broad day light crime, maybe it is because it was UPND who were beaten.
 
I can’t wait for 2021, so that we can come and put order in this Country otherwise Ba Lungu is failing us. Kanganja is being unprofessional and it is painful that we have to pay him using our Taxes, I wish he would rather be paid from President Lungu’s pocket.
 
Napwisha, if you need me, call me on 0966888936 and you know my house, just come and knock peacefully I will open, no dogs and teargas. But if you want to use it, you are free, but one day God will show you that, you are NOTHING!
 
You can’t keep on covering your inefficiencies and politicial deficiencies by accusing and arresting innocent people, if anything you should also be arrested and questioned to tell us where you are getting the information before everyone else. Who told Inonge that is was sabotage, can she be questioned.
 
TAYALI – NI TOUCH AND GO!
 
EEP – ICHALO BANTU!
 
2021 IS OUT TIME – WAPYA BAISA!
