Mwanawasa says he was not seeking PF attention

I am rather baffled albeit saddened that in your article pertaining to the rejected candidates of today’s watchdog edition, you have insinuated that I wanted the PF’s attention. I wish to kindly ask that you check your source of information thoroughly.

At no time did I apply for the forthcoming Kafulafuta bye election on the PF ticket or any other ticket for that matter. I was interviewed by Xavier from TheTimes and if you cared to listen to the recorded interview I had with him you would have discovered that I was not even holding my breath or remotely thinking that the powers that be would adopt me, in spite of the fact that I continue to have cordial relations with the PF leadership.

You may have noticed that I have been on a hiatus from politics and shall remain as such until I see it fit to return. I confess I am an avid reader of the watchdog just as I am of any other periodical, however it is disheartening to read falsehoods or half truths especially if they involve me or any of my family members dead or alive. I remain optimistic that you will continue to offer a selfless service to the nation and international community at large but reiterate that your stories are thoroughly checked.

I remain sincerely yours, Patrick Mwanawasa.

    It is a shame to see such a young man who infact insulted)) RB right center and forward just because mmd rejected him to stand on on there ticket, now it is PF that has rejected him. Young man you are still very young to via for higher offices. Start on lower organs of leadership – ward level or branch leval etc. Secondly your late father would not have any thing to do with sata.a man who deneaned him while he was taken ill.

    Patrick also be honest who are you trying to kid here, you petitioned because you wanted yourself in that and it had nothing to do with principles. We understand for the sake of the hefty benefits you are currently receiving from this govt, you elect to remain quiet until the serpent shall bite you then you shall come out of your circumstance imposed cacoon

    Oh, I wished people would learn to accept what they are exactly. To be a politician is to be a good bait for being dishonest. Try your lucky young mwanawasa and see how your brains will be eroded. Look at the DOG seller, he can no longer sell DOGS now but has grown big Headed.

    Ah please. So if you are on hiatus or pilatus, why did you petition the results? Why were you saying the party leadership has not called me? to me you are just s weakling who cant stand on your principles. You are just trying to exploit your father’s name yo get more for chibuku. In fact, in this statement, you are not categorically deny wanting to be adopted

      This is a very foolish response to good well written article. Patrick petitioned his result on principle. I bet he is more principled than the author of this idiocy. why cant you use your fathers name as well? maybe he was just a nobody not worth emulating

      That is your view however it may not reflect reality. Moreover, it is not always about academic achievements but it is about what you do with those qualifications. The term performance come in play. Does it mean that only those with diplomas, certificates, degrees can perform. However, it is imperative to note that performance is a highly contested concept. Some have argued that it can be measured by outcomes, others have refuted this notion. Conversely, diploma in what? Does it matter which field? Diploma in domestic and needle work?

    Well done Patrick! This is the way to respond and not with insults. You are now growing up mwaice wandi. Keep it up. Miss your company in the UK but will soon relocate to Zambia. On this planet you cannot impress everyone. The media can build you up and can also destroy you. Diplomacy is the key in this turbulent political atmosphere.

    You are very young with a bright future ahead of you. If you have ambitions of serving this country Zambia, ask yourself two questions.
    Do you wish to serve as a leader or as a politician? If you wish to serve as a politician, then become a member of a political party either actively or in the back ground. If you wish to serve as a leader, then wait for your season for leadership goes with season and occasion.

    Politicians serve political parties but leaders serve masses. Politicians are always made by political parties but leaders are made by occasions and that occasion for young would be leaders has not yet come. If you wish to go by leadership direction, then forget about PF. PF has no future for the young people. PF is for the old and it will soon perish with them. Yes we all know you as the son of the former late President, but the question is what have you done to be given the mandate to serve?

    I urge you to reflect deeply on your future in politics during your hiatus. This nation needs young men and women like you to move it forward. Your late father is a shining example of men and women in our politics who refused to succumb to opportunism and political patronage. Follow his steps. It will even help you to determine whether or not you are associating with the right grouping.

    Am impressed in the manner he puts his complent, I wonder Y the PF ddnt give him a deplomatic job. He is young but mature in his ways of doing things. Am also surprised to notice that PF has wise membership as he. I use to think it has only deem men like fatty Kambwili who wud have insulted to here calling people chaps just because he is in power now

    Those of you who have done some elementary psychology know that this boy is complaining about the Pf but he is trying to be dignified about it.

    The truth is as long as he continues to pretend to have ‘cordial’ relationships with the PF, the ‘hiatus’ will be the status quo and I don’t think he has the wisdom to read between the lines.

      Indeed, why do you want to dine and wine with those PF wolves who sent your father to his early grave. Your father was the greatest President this nation ever produced. If you want our respect, emulate him. It is even a shame that you call yourself Mwanawasa’s son at the same-time sharing the same bed with PF. Mwanawasa would even puke at the mention of PF and Sata.
