Mulongoti apologises to opposition for supporting PF during elections

Former MMD Works and Supply minister Mike Mulongoti has apologised for supporting President Michael Sata during last year’s general elections.

Speaking as a guest at the UPND Secretariat this morning where combined opposition party leaders and members of parliament held a joint press conference, Mulongoti said he campaigned for PF because he was fighting for his survival.

“I know that when I was campaigning for the PF many people in MMD and other opposition parties were affected but I was also fighting for my own survival. I had to survive,” said Mulongoti as MMD MPs shouted at him to say sorry.

And Mulongoti said President Sata recently called him to express his bitterness over his attacks on the PF government.

“President Sata called me before he traveled to America, he said ‘you Mulongoti, why are you supporting UPND on this public order act? I know the UPND want to make you vice-president.’ But I asked the President I said how come president Hichilema has not told me about that. I told the President that I supported him during the elections because I supported democracy,” Mulongoti said.

He said President Sata got angry with his response and cut the line.

“When I reminded him that he was failing to govern this country he got angry and cut the line. That was the last time that he spoke to me. I am very happy to see this kind of unity from the opposition, this is what we need, we have to fight the PF injustices together as a united opposition,” Mulongoti said.

Speaking at the same function, UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema described President Sata as a brutal dictator.

“Many Zambians did not know this but some of us saw this a long time ago. You have a dictator at State House, I am not talking about just a dictator but a brutal dictator.” In the history of this country it is happening for the first time that people need to get a police permit to walk or drive on public roads, Its the first time that the opposition are not allowed to hold meetings,” Hichilema said.

He further demanded for the immediate release of MMD president Nevers Mumba who is at Kanfinsa prison with four of his MPs.

MMD vice-president administration Dr Brian Chituwo and vice-president political Michael Kaingu, ADD leader Charles Milupi, political analyst Dante Sounders among others joined hands in condemning what they termed as the beginning of a dictatorship rule by the PF government

Please Mr. Sata, even if you do nothing to improve Zambia, don't take us backwards!

    mulongoti is no longer a factor in politics, after looking for employment in the PF govt and did’t get any and he wants to frustrate them. Mulongoti is a political Zombie who only looks at his belly without caring for many Zambians. HE IS SELFISH!!!!!!

    Mulongoti,has no job and nothing to offer;so forget about him,is a finished chap.

  6. kaponya  December 13, 2012 at 14:30

    Mr. Mulongoti`s stand in politics is questionable one wonders what he is looking for. If anything he has nothing to offer on the political scene. Clearly he is a job seeker because he has behaved like a turn coat and a poor judge who is judging the PF so early in less than 5 years.

    Mulongoti is a little chimpanzee; he even has the balls to admit he was fighting for survival? The Zambians who voted for Ukwa have blood on their hands and have landed us in this mess, shame on you all.

  10. Observer  December 13, 2012 at 08:47

    @Engineer.Well observed.The new party should not be ‘MASS DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT-MDM’ but ‘UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT-UDM’.It will a rebranding of the opposition parties together.This will flush out the CNPs party.

    “Mulongoti said he campaigned for PF because he was fighting for his survival”

    You still trust this guy? Mulongoti has no sound judgement.

    • Chambuleni kelvin m  December 13, 2012 at 19:51

      Mona mulongoti sata has failed to recognize your support in his presidential victory.So l feel for u coz you will not survive now and please note that you are not such a public figure that can even surely convince us that u campaigned for sata and the titanic.Look,you can’t campaign for some one whilst u failed to campagn for yo own position in mmd.ufwa iwe tawaufwika.

  12. Vilifier  December 13, 2012 at 08:06

  19. M.L. Martin  December 12, 2012 at 19:08

    Whatever his weaknesses and arrogance, I applaud the man for coming out crisp about his weakness. It takes courage beyond that, I think it is important to learn lessons; an enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.

  20. asasaasas  December 12, 2012 at 18:58

    this is very good Mr mulongoti we should fight this savage called Micheal Sata with one voice.. I encourage all UPND, MMD and disgruntled PF members of parliament to immediately resign so that we can force a general election.My fellow Zambians this is the only chance we can have an election to remove this incompetent leader named Sata!!

  21. Mubanga  December 12, 2012 at 18:20

    Until we begin to fight for our democracy and country’s survival,Zambia will remain backward. Many political leaders are just fighting for own survival and this is why we see this kind of leadership by the PF!

    Stop playing Zambians like football.
    Mr. Mulongoti, some of us have not forgotten how arrogant you behaved towards Zambians when President Levy was alive.”you walked on water” You patronised and belittled any Zambian that saw otherwise. Leaders are servants of the people and not the other way round bwana. I cannot trust you and many Zambian ought not trust you. Stop playing Gods poeple like football. What legacy do you have in government?

    Clearly President Sata and PF were better choice for survival of Zambia. MMD made ultra corruption new normal. The country was at the brink of being ‘sold to China under RB and you Mr. Mulongoti. Have you forgotten just how much money Chinese bribed MMD for, it was like monopoly money. President Levy tried his best to fight corruption but he was alone. You seem bitter with President Sata and PF for not rewarding you, you sound like HH very selfish. I am not impreesed with President Sata fight aganist corruption either.

    My goodness! Why does anyone even entertain this…this moron? Mr Mulongoti should just get himself a farm and retire in quiet and peace.

  41. Jackson  December 12, 2012 at 16:37

    This is what the POA says: “4) Every person who intends to assemble or convene a public meeting,procession or demonstration shall give police at least seven days notice of that person’s intention to assemble or convene such a meeting, procession or demonstration…7. Any assembly, meeting or procession-
    (a) for which a permit is required under subsection (4) of section five and which takes place without the issue of such permit; or
    (b) in which three or more persons taking part neglect or refuse to obey any direction or order given under subsection (3) or (7) of section five;shall be deemed to be an unauthorised assembly, and all persons taking part in such assembly, meeting or procession and, in the case of an assembly, meeting or procession for which no permit has been issued, all persons taking part in convening, calling or directing such assembly, meeting or procession may be arrested without a warrant and shall on conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding one thousand five hundred penalty units or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months, or to both.” Now show me how Sata has misused the law
