Why Sata and his PF can’t be trusted

Why Sata and his PF can’t be trusted

By Musonda Bwalya

Dear brothers and sisters of the Patriotic Front

It is with great sadness that I have to sit in my room wondering what pain and anguish you must be going through considering how your leadership has over the past year taken your feelings, emotions and health for granted.

How long will you let them lie to you and treat you like you are simple machines whose purpose of existence is to merely satisfy… their hunger for power by giving them the support and votes they need to be ushered into office?

Time after time they have lied to you, raised your emotions and tampered with your blood preasure just for their selfish desire and amusement. Some of the incidences in which they have taken you for mere puppets are as follows:

1. PF/UPND Pact

Some time ago a union between your party and the United Party For National Development was formed on account that neither of them could defeat the rulling Movement for Multiparty Democracy alone. While this was true, the UPND were looking at a more bigger picture of giving Zambians meaningful change by providing a leadership with a national face (UPND’s major strongholds are PF’s weakest areas and vice versa) and harmonizing social-economic policies considering that the two parties were different ideologically i.e the PF being socialist and the UPND with a propensity towards capitalism, the PF’s main preoccupation was that of sharing leadership positions; kind of saying lets take care of our selfish interests first and then the wishes of Zambians will cone later. When the UPND did not agree to this they were called all sorts of names including UNDER 5’s and that they were so shallow that they THINK WITH THEIR TRIBES.It is these insults and other irreconcilable differences that led to the demise of the pact. Its almost easy to blame the PF for they have shown on other occasions that they cannot work with other parties and are intolerant of divergent views. In 2006 their pact with the United Liberal Progressive part collapsed because they ULP wasn’t consulted and did not agree on the stance taken by the PF to promise to liberate FTJ (mhsrip) without a fair trial because he was innocent and that the as a way to gain votes in areas were the late was popular.

2. APRIL FOOLS DAY CIRCUS

After the collapse of the pact, the PF went on a solo campaign and lied to you by telling you that the elections would be held on 01st April, 2011. They again psychologically prepared you to cast you votes on a day reserved for FOOLS! More ficticious dates were announced by your leaders and you still believed.

 

3. TEA-PARTY GET TOGETHER CONVENTION

In a bid to create a picture that they were a democratic party, your leaders hosted a convention were 3500 delegates were in attendance.To everyones shock and dismay, not a single ballot was cast yet proving to you that democracy and divergent views were alien to the PF.Sadly however such tenets are enshrined in their constitution which they have promised to deliver within 90 days of assuming office.

 

ARTICLE 57

ELECTION OF MEMBERS OF CENTRAL COMMITTEE

(1) The election of twenty (20) Members of the Central Committee shall be held at the General

Conference of the Party.

(2) Candidates shall indicate to the President of the Party not less than one day before the day of

the

Conference their intention to stand for the office of the Member of the Central Committee.

(3) (a) The President of the Party shall submit his list of candidates together with the names

of other candidates for the office of the Member of Central Committee to the

National Council for consideration and approval.

 

The question is why should the constitution demand that someone aspiring for higher level needs seek first the approval of the president? Is the president a god?

4. MASS DEFECTIONS

Your leaders promised you defections to you party in large numbers from the rulling MMD. The yet again prepared you psychologically to receive people you called liers, corrupt, selfish and incompetent and whose failure and betrayal prompted you to seek change of government. They demanded that you accept these “rejects” as your leaders because politics was not about SERVICE but about NUMBERS. THEY TOLD YOU TO REJECT AND ABANDON MEMBERS WHO FOR 10 YEARS HAD BEEN LOYAL TO THE PARTY AND ITS CAUSE AND INSTEAD OPT FOR JOB SEEKING POLITICAL OPPORTUNISTS.

5. DESPARATE MEASURES

Seeing that they were ill prepared for the polls after the election date had been announced, your party had gone into panic mode.First was when they filed an injuction restraining the candidate of the rulling party from standing on flimsy charges of parentage. When this failed they demanded the halting of the election date on other false and baseless claims including those to do with the printing company contracted to print ballot papers, and the source of funding for campaign materials.

As if this wasn’t enough they together with their public relations wing newspaper published a false opinion poll suggesting that your leader would win the elections by 55%.SADLY HOWEVER THE UNIVERSITY THEY CLAIM HAD CONDUCTED THE POLL ISN’T EVEN IN EXISTENCE.

They then brainwashed some of you to the point of having voices inside your heads telling stories that not even three year olds cannot believe. I CANT HELP BUT ASK: HAVE YOU BEEN BEWITCHED? HAVE BEEN TURNED INTO ZOMBIES? These questions silly as they may sound remind me of a story I read early this concerning fears among some of your members that that some leaders

had become so desparate that they had resorted to witchcraft.

6. PARANOIA

It seems in the end that your party is trying to use lies, rumor and gossip to create in you a sense of insecurity, hatrad, and paranoia that these elections will not be free and fair through constantly attacking the ECZ, the police and the judiciary thereby creating a false impression that you cannot trust the above institutions and as such the only to acquire justice is through unrest and violence.

But remember WE ARE ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION AND THIS COUNTRY IS BIGGER THAN ANYONE OR ALL OF OUR LEADERS. LET US NOT BE FOOLED INTO BELIVIEVING THAT INSTABILITY IS THEY KEY TO SUCCESS AND THAT PEACE IS STUPIDITY! THIS IS THE OCULT’S VIEW OF PROGRESS AS WAS WRITTEN BY A MASTER MASON IN THE 1940’s

7. DONCHI KUBEBA

Finally I leave you with the real meaning of donchi kubeba. That which your leaders wont tell you about the selfish dictatorial manner in which they will run this country. Have you noticed that non of you never reports on anything progressive or developmental that your leader said except the” crowd was big and ni donchi kubeba” ?Thats because they never engange you in issue based debates but just vilify other people. Tell me how will talking about Rupiah, Dora or HH put any food on your table and send your children to school? How will rumours improve your lives?

So this is how your party intends to govern you. I urge to analyse these methods objectively and see if this is the way to govern a country for democracy, development and tolerance for divergent views. Please vote wisely.
