UPND Livingstone MP resigns, given parliamentary gratuity in advance

sikwelaMP for Livingstone Howard Sikwela has resigned from UPND

Sikwela has resigned from  UPND claiming that he has being used as a blank cheque.

But the Watchdog has been informed that Sikwela has been given not a cheque but billion of cash from PF.

As part of the deal for him to resign, Sikwela has been given an undisclosed sum of money but equivalent to what he would have got at the end of his term in parlaiment as gratuity and all allowances.

Sikwela has also been refunded all the money he put in to campaign in Livingstone. He has additionally been promised a job in the diplomatic service.

Howard Sikwela  was elected MP  for Livingstone on July 5, 2012.

    I find this very confusing, had I known this years ago I too could have resigned and claimed my full benefits. I find this very immoral- getting fully paid for a job not performed. God have mercy on us. Presidency has been set.

    Why is Sata after opposition MPs?Either there are no good Mps in PF or he is trying to destroy our democracy.Perhaps he wants to take to a one party state.Beware a cobra is sattle.He is an identical twin brother of Mugabe.

    Sikwela is just another impoverished man who trys to reap where he did not sow. The man was just an R.E teacher at Ibenga Girls Secondary in the early 90’s. He left to go lecture at Livingstone trades hoping life would be better. Manipulated his way into becoming a Pastor probably thinking the church would give him a chance to make money. He failed there and joined politics hoping there were sacks of money waiting for him at parliament. Sadly he realised in opposition you actually spend more than you earn, hence he couldnt stay. Wait and see, when he finds his greener pastures are not as green he will run. The only problem is where will he run to next?

    i have been thinking about what action can be taken against mr sikwela for his silly thinking.
    Mr sikwela must pay back all the money that UPND spent during his election befor he becomes a free molecule,thats the only way he and some other shallow minded mps can learn.surely how do you resign within 6 months.why didnt he just refuse to contest if he is not a politician.
    OK game on ,very soon you will hear some false statements from this man against upnd.
    HEY bring me some more shonkonono.

  8. lunga wa mwaza  January 5, 2013 at 18:48

    Fisrt sikwela was seen ushering in masumba in parliament as if there r no pipo in pf to do that. That’s there is no democracy in zambia because the ruling party is trying at all cost to kill the oppositino. Who said u can’t bring development wen u r in the opposition.

  9. one zambia 72 nations  January 5, 2013 at 18:24

    yeh,the game is on,mr sikwela must pay back all the money that upnd spent during the election.that way atleast he and some other mps will learn a lesson and they will never ever act like judas fimofimo who sold jesus.i think he used his fingers to calculate his outlet,how do resign barely after 6 months.

  10. Kahilu Chelu  January 5, 2013 at 17:19

    Haward, u are unfair to the pipo of livingstone. Remember that its a no go area for pama fi. its upnd. I advise u not to contest otherwise u will be embarrassment. U are judas a foolish pastor with no heart for the pipo of Livingstone. U cheat God’s children when u are a lion in a sheep’s skin. Mind your movement otherwise we will get rid of for good.

    HE.SIKWELA IS NOT A MAN OF GOD,HE IS JUST A MONEY LOVER.SLOW THINKER MAN.

    PF has defaulted on its many promises and appears to have more corrupt arsenal than MMD. What we need is to clean up the whole political landscape

  14. lee  January 5, 2013 at 10:31

    Men of GOD just concentrate on spreading the WORD, i doubt if he is a true clergy man. Who just want cash on the expense of the many poor Zambians in his Constituency.

  15. Hara  January 5, 2013 at 10:29

    The pastor is been bonking Masebo all this time she has been frequenting Livingstone on condition that he resigns from UPND; otherwise how do you explain this madness from a Pastor. This is the reason why churches are collapsing on worshippers while busy praying because of these Father Bwalya type of preachers.

  16. maseka  January 5, 2013 at 09:32

    This will surely retained by upnd. Pls people use think twice before you cast yo vote.

  17. CHIPS2016HH  January 5, 2013 at 08:38

    All this is because of you chi old man buying these poor pastors.fake president.tinazigon’ga apa peve

    THAT SIKWELA MAN IS EVEN A CHURCH MAN, SHAME BE ON HIM,FOR REJCTING THE PEOPLE’S VOTE OF CONFIDENCE ON HIM, AND SELLING HIS SOUL FOR 30 SHEKELS OF SILVER….SHAMEFUL, NO PRINCIPLES…

  20. truthates  January 5, 2013 at 07:27

    Better quote your source of funds or news source unlike just guessing.

    I like reading such because of my research works. But when no quotes of news or sources are available, it leaves others and me in doubt.
    If not guessing be brave, quote the source.

    Be truthful.

    • INSIDER  January 5, 2013 at 08:43

      Would you want our families to suffer when we are eliminated for giving out data? At least you should be grateful that you know what is happening. ZWD or indeed any media house does not have to cite their sources especially for “top secrets” the way you must do for your literature reviews. You are at peace because you are only reading about these stories for your information only n probably do not feel th actual impact because probably you do not ve any clue about th secret agenda behind these dirty schemes. Those innocent souls involved in these schemes are at pain but then you ve no option but to do it or get eliminated. Just follow th stories n events as they unfold though sadly there ll never ve to sources cited, sorry bwana, it’s th for security.

    • INSIDER  January 5, 2013 at 08:45

      For security reasons

    Exactly the way PF is 4 Bembas!

    Sikwela. U wil never ever have peace in this country. Unles u re not nomal. Iwe mudala. Iam so shoked. so u re tipe of mp like in mmd and pf. How can one sink so low. Rubish man.

  23. Mphangwe  January 5, 2013 at 07:00

    The big Qustion is: WHICH FINANCIAL BUSINESSMAN OR BANK IS FUNDING “SATA’S SLUSH FUND” being used to corrupt such traitors? We pray that the Auditor General will ensure that no tax payers money is being misused. This will be detected after 2016 as milandu will never get rottem.

  24. Mphangwe  January 5, 2013 at 06:49

    This an eye opener for the opposition parties to carefully screen their potential Parliamentary candidates. There are too many wolves in sheep’s clothing. As for Howard Sikwela, this is the end of his careers in politics and priesthood in his Church. With a looming eclipse of the PF in Govt, the new ruling party will ensure to clean up the mess in Government, diplomatic services and parastal organisations. All PF good-time beneficiaries will soon go into oblivion. The red light is illuminating much brighter by each month, weeks and days. Blessed are the men and women who project honesty with integrity.

  25. jackson  January 5, 2013 at 06:26

    He thought parliament was like at church were no one was expected to ask questions during the service. He has just realized that he could not manage to say anything in parliament and later on bring development to the pipo of Livingstone . The man is more dangerous than a serpent.

  26. edward  January 5, 2013 at 05:36

    WHERE CAN PF GET SO CALLED BILLIONS OF KWACHA TO SPEND ON AN INDIVIDUAL TO RESIGN INSTEAD OF USING IT TO DEVELOPMENT? 2. How did you know its in Billions when you say again un disclosed amount? Quiet confusing

    • Sara  January 5, 2013 at 06:14

      I hope you know that billion is not specific. It may be 5 billion or 7 billion or any number. So I think ZWD does not know the exact amount but they know that the amount is in billions.

  27. Chris mukuwa  January 5, 2013 at 05:35

    Live him he is tired to be in paliament. Even if he defects to pf he will still do the same coz he is used.

  28. SAINI  January 5, 2013 at 03:05

    Watchdog, give us more information on Rev’s resignation. Its good to tell the truth other than making unsubstantiated statements. Is it because its UPND MP who has resigned?? Lets not condemn him, its his right!!!

  29. Gbm  January 4, 2013 at 22:28

    Dollie girl, you are right how does he come back to church but nowing how .B.I.C reverends behave, he will come back. Check what happened at choma sec sch, a pastor, again .B.I.C. Shame.

      you twit if u were going to bic church for starters you would know that sikwela doesnt get any money from the church he has never been on the churchs payroll,its not even as if the same bic has any money,if anything bic is like upnd only tongas in southern province know it,

  31. Sosa  January 4, 2013 at 21:27

    Why pretend. When your conscious is not clear better quit and follow your heart.

  32. Trumpeter  January 4, 2013 at 21:00

    We shud hv known that this man cannot be trusted. A person who sat nearer to God, at least in his mind, and could not hold his passion of women, let alone married ones. His incapability to control himself sexually, morally and emotionally as a church leader shud hv warned us. If he did not fear to desecrate the house of the lord what more us that voted for him. This political adultery is a symbol of this mans demise and he must be aware that money will not talk to him but pipo whom he has swindled. Upnd will not tolerate such diplorable levels of indiscipline and we think he is free to go to pipo of his same level of calibre, may his conscious never be at peace until he realizes his blackmail of the innocent pipo of livingstone.mysrip.

  33. PA ZED  January 4, 2013 at 20:29

    Surely, something is wrong with some Zambian politicians. They do not care about us but just self centered. Selfishness that is the name of the game. As long as they acquire the monies they go as if it is pleasing. SHAME!!! Such characters do not deserve another chance because all they want is CHELETE AIWE and off they disappear!!! NIHANILE NA PLZ!

  34. Dollie-girl  January 4, 2013 at 19:57

    Ba Sikwela (not Sekwila, Sekwila is Nervas’ name). Rev Howard Sikwela of the Brethren In Christ Church, Dambwa Congregation in Livingstone probably did not know that his role as opposition MP was to provide checks and balances. He didnt know that his alligence is to the party that took him to Manda Hill and so he was confused totally. He simply joined politics to get a job and money after suffering so much, thats what this is all about. Shame to my church how will he come back? Sorry mudaala, mwatusampula loko!

  35. Chambeshi Metals  January 4, 2013 at 19:36

    Doesn’t this sikwela chap have a pending court case like namulambe? ZWD investigate and advise. It could be another trade off. Watch Namulambe’s court case closely.

    • Ulemu ni Wabwino  January 5, 2013 at 10:52

      If my memeory serves me right, there was some adultery allegation some time back. Probaly he was blackmailed into resigning

  36. Umunthu  January 4, 2013 at 19:31

    Right to freedom of conscience, Go PF Donchi Kubeba, next is HH

  37. good girl gone bad  January 4, 2013 at 19:14

    I really abhor insults but as a former Livingstone resident and as a sensible Zambian taxpayer,i have no choice today but to call this scumbag of a reverend a stupid fool. Five months after being elected he has resigned? He deserves to be shot for this madness!

      Its HH’s politics of hate for Sata and PF that has caused this resignation. H.H’s initials should stand for “HATE HIM”

  42. Scott B  January 4, 2013 at 18:47

    Cheap minds like that of Roka or whatever u call yourself retards real development. Tell me any development u yourself have seen to those provinces that are flooded with pf mps for u to say upnd is locking its mps thereby retarding development. This same money cud be used to develop yo village you nicompoomp.(sp).

  43. Field shamz  January 4, 2013 at 18:32

    Another drain of huge sums of money fromthe national treasury.
    This man is one the politiCian than have no heart for the zambian peoples.
    Brothers and sisters let us not have voter apathy but let us vote wisely and teach theSe political prostitutes lessons that will change them into responsible politicians.

  44. luwi  January 4, 2013 at 18:03

    Sikwela is running into disaster. I know him very Well to say that he joined politics to finish building his house in livingstone. His main calling was pasting but he quit because he wasn’t chosen bishop of a congregation. This is all about money. His huge pay cheque awaits him, he will pay terribly for this.

  45. Pa Zed  January 4, 2013 at 17:53

    Ok that is the Upnd mp resigning and not MMD. Note that this seat was held by MMD after the 2011 elections, then in the spirit of working together MMD allowed UPND to get it. Of late each time MMD lost an mp through resignations, UPND jumped to try and get the seat, see what has happened to u. Drink your medicine

  46. Bantu Botatwe  January 4, 2013 at 17:43

    There’s a reason why Americans screen their politicians in all areas of life. Because they believe that one cannot rule others before he/she has ruled himself/herself well, ie, morally, financially,etc. Howard Sikwela’s adulterous past should have been sufficient fore-warning to the UPND leadership that he was the wrong person to choose for parliamentary candidature in the first place.
