Sata determined to knock Nevers Mumba from 2016 presidential race

By a correspondent

President Michael Sata’s biggest fear is that the MMD, the former ruling party may bounce back to power and he has not hidden his trepidation by stating that his Patriotic Front government is in fact sitting on an MMD volcano that has the potential to spontaneously erupt.

Mr Sata, a former senior member of the MMD is dreading the possibility that Dr Nevers Mumba’s rebranded MMD has remained intact in its structures and that is why he is working hard to destroy the former ruling party.

With the Mufumbwe victory fraudulently on his PF plate, President Sata and the PF have now believe that they can expressly foment chaos in the MMD that would quickly see Dr Mumba out of the presidential race in 2016.

The poaching of the MPs from the MMD and schemes to ensure that the former ruling party is deregistered are means to ensure that Dr Mumba is knocked out of the presidential race because should he be allowed, he may just pull a big surprise especially in areas such as Luapula, Northern and Muchinga Provinces where the PF boasts of supremacy.

The popularity of the PF has plummeted far too quickly as the people realize that the people in government are a bunch of hooligans causing both political economic and social terror to the country.

There is every evidence that the quarrels in the MMD have been instigated by the Mr Sata who has without doubt planted his political moles in the former ruling party and so far it has been working well for the President.

The latest confusions that have rocked the MMD with its embattled national secretary Richard Kachingwe attempting to overthrow his party president Nevers Mumba openly point to the fact that the schemes to kill the former ruling party are still active.

The Patriotic Front through its politically imbued registrar of societies Clement Andeleki attempted to deregister the MMD early this year and the Mr Sata is still determined to obliterate the former ruling party and this time he has employed embattled and disgruntled Major Kachingwe.

The former MMD national secretary is now threatened to deregister the former ruling party on behalf of his new boss, President Michael Sata.

Maj Kachingwe had long left the MMD and he remained in the party as a mole and that is why Nevers Mumba has had serious problems of governing the party.

Maj Kachingwe certainly is not the only mole in the MMD and it would be wiser for Dr Mumba and his team to identify and purge the traitors before the former ruling party sinks into oblivion.

And to ensure that the MMD must crumble, the Post newspaper that propagated strong hate messages (and is still doing so) against former president Rupiah Banda and a strong ally of Mr Sata and the PF is doing the damage in the MMD pitying its senior members against each other.

Dr Mumba and his team may succeed in getting rid of Maj Kachingwe but there are other PF decoys in the MMD and the party president fully knows the ruling party will do everything to ensure that the former ruling party gets into extinction.

President Sata and the PF in government will not be easy to defeat and Dr Mumba has realized that it would be difficult for the MMD or the United Party for National Development to form government in their fragmented form.

He has not hidden the fact that it would not be easy for the opposition political parties to dislodge the PF from power in their fragmented form and that is why he is still calling on his counterpart from the UPND Hakainde Hichilema, who has suffered the worst form of harassment and persecution, that the two need to work together for the good of Zambians.

Dr Mumba and Mr Hichilema should realize that together, they could be the savior Zambians need and that is the reason Mr Sata and PF are spending sleepless nights scheming how to crack their political parties and working relationship so that they could perpetuate their hegemony beyond 2016.

The MMD and the UPND know they have one common enemy in President Sata and the Patriotic Front and they must forget their differences and party interests if they have to redeem the country from claws of the PF kleptomaniacs.

To achieve this, the MMD and the UPND must adopt the unpredictability and speed of a rookie heavyweight, punching devastating political blows in short bursts and at close range in Mr Sata’s political groin if they have to knockout the PF who have already dealt them with an upper cut in Mufumbwe.

In governance and policy formulation, the PF and Mr Sata are so bankrupt that they would rather believe killing the voice of the opposition would certainly mathematically secure them the so much needed second term in office.

The turning of the country into a police state through their despotic rule is meant to stifle and intimidate the UPND and MMD whose right to hold political rallies has been violated with impunity.

Using the archaic public order act and intoxicated with imagined absolute power, President Sata and his Patriotic Front are under the false illusion that they will remain in power until the second coming of Jesus.

Zambians as a matter of fact have other alternative power centers such as the MMD, UPND, and Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) and the National Revolution Party (NAREP) which citizens will be at liberty to choose from in the next general elections.

Mr Sata has therefore become a monstrous dictator at the wrong time and in a wrong country because Zambians will not be forced to return to the dreaded days of one party state of Kenneth Kaunda and are ready to protect the hard earned democracy with its respect for human rights and good governance.

While it takes a leap of political imagination to suggest that the MMD and the UPND can have Zambians saved from the barbarous Sata regime if they forgot their political differences and worked together, there is no doubt that the unity of the two political parties can be the answer in 2016.

To achieve this though, Dr Mumba and Mr Hichilema have to assemble their political personnel to suit their imagined winning template.

There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that there is a serious revolt against Mr Sata and the PF on the ground for having obtained state power by lies.

The fantasized political slogan of more money and more jobs for Zambians has turned into a sordid night mare with many asking why they believed that an inept political moron could convince and deceive the educated into voting for him.

When Zambians voted for Mr Sata and the PF, they were of the hope that their future was going to be better than their past but the people are now dreading the future under Mr Sata because of his hegemonic way he has adopted to rule the country.

The desperate poor are feeling the effect of massive food price increases, inflation, cost of transport, unemployment, corruption and nepotism and are disillusioned as they are not seeing a better tomorrow than what they had just yesterday.

Instead of working at delivering their promises, they have adopted the “It is our turn to eat” syndrome and Ministers, senior government and party cadres are busy looting and sharing public resources openly and fighting over public resources as the President acknowledges the plunder.

Meanwhile, Mr Sata has withdrawn from the people and does not even want to talk about the food or fuel shortages nor does he even have the guts to comment on corruption among his own senior cabinet ministers some of whom have been fighting publicly over public money and are being investigated by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

Mr Sata and the PF promised Zambians largesse, milk and honey in 90 days but they made the pledges without proffering a shred of evidence about how exactly they would achieve their promises making Mr Sata’s presidency horrendous in just over a year.

    We thout PF was better but whats happening where kabimba goes with a rented crowd to ACC s offices is absurd.Whats the difference between MMD and PF.Its like our politicians dont learn. on ZP,its like tear gas canisters are only meant for the opposition ie SATA wen in opposition,HH recently.After tear gassing him now they worship hm.Are these proffesionals or what.How can a suspect,worse still min of Justice behave like before cameras.Wynter is one guy who simply overrates himself when he is not better than HH,MILUPI,CHIPIMO etc.Yet he owes his fortunes to one man,MCS.One wonders what will happen when his benefactor is no more.

    And Sata thinks he has an army to fight gallant Barotse Liberation Army combatants, LOL! No wonder Foday Sankoh found Zambia commandos with the UN snoring in Sierra Leone, decapitated them one time.

    In Sudan, they showed they had learnt their lesson when janjaweedos came knocking, they hide in small bushes Katele Kalumba style while others legged it so hard for safety. And Zondwe thinks this is the army he can use to intimidate Lozis, very foolish

    You got what you wanted. Al sane people knew Sata chinangwa but you Bembas flocked in multitudes to vote for an embacile for president. Nomba lwenu, fry in your bigoted choices.

    Well put. May the opposition make a serious alliance with HH as President Nevers as VP. People have not forgotten the ills of MMD so HH will be easier to sell than Nevers and MMD.

    People of Zambia, I ask you a question, Was voting time due at the time we asked KK to call for elections? The ansa is NO. Let us go for elections and choose leaders who can lead us with integrity. When we are out to other countries we hear of Zambia as great Nation with highly respected citizens. They ask us a question why choose a person whom you very well know that he will not govern to be your head of state? The ansa is not poverty as others will take it. It is VOTER APATHY by the knowlegeable and intelectuals in Zambia. I am this time arround asking all proffessional bodies to sensetise their members to vote in NEXT YEAS’s elections. We are lead by dull people The whole cabinet office and MOF are lead by people who cannot analyse the balance sheet and understand the ratios therin for future predictions. we are moving with the wind. LET US FORM A MOVEMENT FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT(MFFD) WHICH SHOULD SEE THE CURRENT GOVT. OUT.

    • GEN K   December 4, 2012 at 12:04

      experience is a hard teacher because shes gives the test first,the lessons afterwards,therefore the future will always be there ,PF and Zambia at large is not short of leaders.

    You Zambians what were u expecting from an old man like Sata. 2016 is not tomorrow, you are going to endure 3 solid years of suffering from the saviour cum dictator. Tough luck I don’t think you have the bone to persevere like your southern neighbours.

  14. maybin   December 4, 2012 at 08:51

    Is the pf responsible for the infighting in the opposition,or is the opposition not upto task to organise themselves and challenge the pf?the confusion in pf,opposition to blame,so as the opposition instability,pf to blame.who is fooling who here?

    • Some-Of-Us   December 4, 2012 at 10:07

      Who was responsible for the bickering between PF and its rebel MPs during the NCC?

  21. Sumerian   December 4, 2012 at 07:24

    “…politically inept moron.” You’ve got to love press freedom! MMD and UPND have no future outside of a coalition. Surely Mr Hichilema understands that by now.

    • hachibikubantu   December 4, 2012 at 12:24

      that’s your opinion why should we believe you

      • Sumerian   December 4, 2012 at 13:06

        Of course it’s an opinion – that’s the purpose of this forum: to post opinions! No one compels you to believe my opinion, or anyone else’s opinion for that matter. You just have to make up your own damn mind whether to believe it or not!

    • Wanzelu   December 4, 2012 at 12:27

      HH and Chipimo are the only leaders who should probably start working together. Dr Mumba participated actively in the corruption that engulfed MMD. I have no faith what so ever in leaders who served in previous reckless governments like MMD and UNIP. These two are dead parties. How ever I would also like new parties with new leaders formed.

      Profound evidence exists to support my reasons for being against the leaders who served as cabinet ministers or in positions of influence under the previous regimes. Look at Sata and RB, both these guys were active members of both reckless and corrupt MMD and UNIP. RB slowly resorted to political repression like in UNIP days. Sata has already resorted to worse than UNIP kind of political repression. He is abusing the public order act to destroy opposition.To me it seems this is the kind of leadership they have ever known and cherished over the years. We all know that teaching an old dog new tricks is a futile exercise.

      Sata is a hypocrite who has no shame and no sense of direction. He is an impulsive compulsive liar and also a divisive,manipulative, unthoughtful,selfish dictator to say the least. He preaches virtue and practices vise. He is making people ‘s lives worse day by day. And Guy Scott is happy because this is exactly how his descendants ruled Zambia.

      Its time for Zambians to try brand new leaders without tainted political image or association with previous regimes. This I believe is the only way to restore hope and confidence in the Zambian political system.The major problem is most people believe in political experience of mismanaging the country as good credentials for being a Zambian President. To me this is exactly the experience that Sata RB and Dr Mumba have.

      For those of you who remember I have constantly warned Zambians on this forum against recycling leaders as if new young capable intelligent and educated Zambians to fill the political void are in short supply.


      • Sumerian   December 4, 2012 at 13:17

        MMD has never been corrupt, my friend. It never will be. Certain individuals within the MMD have been accused of corruption by known sections of Zambian society to further their own agendas. I have yet to hear that any of the MMD leaders past and present, have been convicted on corrupt charges. ‘RB is corrupt, RB’s children are corrupt, Dora is corrupt…’ ad nauseam are just mantras that have drilled into your heads through repetitive reading of The Post newspaper. RB, Mumba are both walking free in Zambia and out.

        It you haven’t yet realised it, the corruption tag pinned on the MMD was part of a massive mind control campaign carried out by the PF through it’s propaganda medium The Post to hoodwink y’all into voting for Sata.

        • Wanzelu   December 5, 2012 at 15:08

          They can not convict them of any corruption charges because they are all birds of the same feathers. UNIP/MMD/PF in they are all members of UMP
