PF plans to ambush opposition parties with a presidential by-election

With all financial logistics, resources and preferred sucessor to ailing president Michael Sata almost settled, the ruling PF now plans to call for a snap presidential by-election by ambushing the disorganised opposition parties.

Impecable sources within the PF government have told the Watchdog that once president Sata resigns due to failing health, which might be pretty soon, government will only give a one month period for both nominations and campaigns which is well within the law.
According to the Zambian constitution, elections in the office of the president or parliament can be held within 90 days once a vacancy has been created.
Sources said part of the project to have suppressed the opposition parties and investigated their financial capacity such as exposing UPND president Hakainde Hichilema’s personal bank account was to establish their financial muscle to match the PF campaign that is well under way already.
Insiders say the creation of numerous by-elections in opposition strongholds was also meant to test the rigging formula as well as set-up PF structures in those areas.
“My dear it is up to the opposition parties to rise to the occasion because whether they like it or not, they will surely be caught off-guard. The main headache was the successful lifting of former president Rupiah Banda’s immunity who apparently is believed to have the financial capacity and contacts to raise campaign funds from friends at short-notice. With his passport grabbed and movements restricted, they are therefore in a position to cripple his financial muscle,” sources said.
According to insiders, there is a general agreement so far by the Kola Foundation that Finance Minister Alexander takes over for now till 2016 when a suitable sucessor will be identified.
Sources say so far, enough resources have been hurriedly rised from road contracts that are controlled from State House by Sata’s campaign manager Willie Nsanda to be able to pump huge sums of money in each constituency to bribe voters.
Some of the money raised from road contracts came through Sata’s son Mulenga who has been getting commissions from Zulu Burrow Consultancy owned by Lusaka engineer Levy Zulu.
Mulenga Sata the Lusaka deputy mayor who is also a civil engineer at one time worked for Zulu Burrow.
Most of the major road contracts awarded by the PF government are supervised by Zulu Burrow among them the famous Bottom road and Chinsali- Chama- Matumbo road. Even the biggest rural electrification project that will see a number of chiefs palaces electrified is being supervised by Zulu Burrow.
It is alleged that Mulenga gets 10% percent commission from each project.
Mulenga is also rumoured to be preparing to take over from treacherous Kabwata member of Parliament Given Lubinda as parliamentary candidature as Lubinda’s future hangs in balance.
Homework has also been done with the installing of a user friendly Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda who has been acting permanently without any challenge despite failure to get ratification from parliament.
Ms. Chibesakunda is a first cousin to president Sata.
On the Legistrature, the Speaker Patrick Matibini, is a personal friend to Director of Public Prosecutions, Mutembo Nchito as they formed a Law firm together called MNB Chambers (Matibini, Nchitos and Banda). M-for Patrick Matibini, N-Nchitos Nchima and Mutembo, and B-for Elijah Banda former Law Association of Zambia president.
They have also gotten hold of the media which is the forth estate as everyone is now aware that the Post newspapers determines the editorial content for all public media instituions especially the Zambia daily mail where the deputy chief Anthony Mukwita has completely sidelined the chief executive Isaac Chipampe.
Most of the casual workers engaged by the road contractors will be PF campaign agents.

Sources said the snap election scheme is well advanced unless it is revised with such revelations, and that opposition parties may have no basis to cry that they lost because so far PF have managed to psyche the public that they have been winning the Local Government and Parliamentary by-elections.

Sata's meeting with Muchinga chiefs was not part of govt programme
Munkombwe is Sata's minister for S/province, Charles Banda dropped?

    Kozo,u are very wise and a normal human being should salute u. To respond to yo concerns in brief,zambia has failed to develop to expected levels despite vast allocation of natural resources(rivers,swamps,lakes,flat firtile land,good temperature and so on) because of the 73 combination of tribes that has kept spending much time with discussions of how better their tribes are.Remember how God seperated the people when building that tower to heaven. We are in a similar situation as zambians. We therefore,need to put trible ethics aside and work towards one common denominator,DEVELOPMENT.This wil come if we will hav a leadership with vision for a common human being regardless of tribe.This wil include sharing of equal oportunity in our society regardless of where one finds himself in the for all tribes wil sort out the problem.Lets live as one.Believe me if u like,zambia is better than the rest in our region so long we act.We have many political parties with people(leaders) that are their for personal gains.its only in zambia where u gonna find 100 opposition political parties with the aim of confusing us.

    A combined team of UPND and MMD political pundits should lead the way.There’s strength in unity.The UPND and MMD can maintain their separate identities,but what is important is to avoid splitting the vote during elections.Also,there’s ample evidence showing that the corrupt PF has been illegally using state resources to campaign during by-elections,so opposition finacial resources cannot match those of the PF,hence the need for the opposition to pool their resources.Moreover,Michael Sata is the sort of character who cannot think twice about dipping his hands in government coffers.
    The UPND and MMD should,as a matter of priority,invite other genuine small opposition parties to participate in a grand coalition so that the masses can be mobilized in preparation for any future parliamentary or the much anticipated presidential by-election.One does not have to be a psychiatrist to know that Sata’s unstable mind is due to some terminal illness.Once the opposition prepares the groundwork,the PF will not manage to win any elections.

    Mumba and MMD working on the bye election – thus non participation in useless bye elections. They are equal to the task!

  9. Oldmadala   March 28, 2013 at 14:35

    Kola group? My foot! Sounds like they hail from Zaire. Kikikikiki. Are they not the same impoverished and malnourished chiefs whose only interest in lust for money? Shame, our country has been turned into an absolute monarch! Brainless and spineless chiefs from the kola kingdom. Now i know why some editorial was so flattering on some old principled citizen. It was all in anticipation of some reward once this happens. Unfortunately others already analysed where the editorial was heading to….. Personal gain

    This is exciting news but to those in doubt about Sata resigning will continue to burry their heads in the sand. Truth is Sata is SICK. Let pesidential by elections come and Zambians will decide with unseen 90 day development cheated to Zambians. The Lord reigns, evil is always checked and will continue to be subjected to the Lord’s sovereignty.

    let them do that..we shall show them who is the master..they should not take Zambians for it a monarch..?

  13. Kozo   March 28, 2013 at 12:31

    I do not know when Zambians will be united and speak with one voice concerning the governance of this country. How many groups do we have in pf? there is Kabimba Mmembwe & KK group, there is kola, chiefs from Muchinga and Luapula, there are Bemba ministers facing the combined cabinet of pf ministers all report to one MCS as president. This makes governance become a problem which group should the president listen to, or which group should the Zambian people trust. Please give us a break and let us be guided by the constitution if at all the president wants to step down due to ill health. The opposition is also confusing. HH, Mumba, and Banda are together, which party is this, come in open and tell us what you intend to do, otherwise things will surely fall apart cos we do not know which direction to follow or which president to support. In pf,the kola and chiefs group talks who the successor should be, cos the president cannot continue due to his poor health, the other group says the president is going to show himself in Chongwe that he is well and working as a coverup for the sickness rumors. Come on people who is the president and where are you taking this nation, can some one come out of the shell and talk to us?

    This watchdog has been digging several truths in the recent past. At least 99 percent of what they have foretold here has come to pass. E.g they have reported that PF has bribed 3 UPND Mps with ministerial positions way before it was in public domain and we have seen it come to pass. ZWD has told us that there were plans to debate RB’s immunity and eventually lift it on such and such a day way before ZNBC talked abt it and it came to pass. ZWD told us that the killers of PF cadre Chanda are not UPND but PF themselves and singled out the culprit and today that chap is in custody. I am wondering why you cant see some truth in their story. Read Membe’s editorial for yesterday and use your brains to do so, you ‘ll understand what is going on. By the way if you have been following the nature of Membe’s editorials they are always contextual. They don’t just fall form heaven, they usually have a basis. The question you should ask yourself is why shd Membe talk abt political successors now- who has died or who is yet to step down?

    Whether we consider the individual, family, local, national or international level, peace must arise from inner peace. For example, making prayers for peace while continuing to harbor anger is futile. Training the mind and overcoming your anger is much more effective than mere prayer. Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that(Dalai Lama). viva hh & upnd

    Kabimba the notorious crook, how did he manage to escape the questioning by the ACC after taking the entire Lusaka PF hooliganism to ACC offices, he too he is supposed to appear before the courts as it is no one is above the law now it seems it is quiet because the appointing authority it is he Kabimba with his fellow crook like Sata who is now bed redden must be exposed
