‘HH is right on Dr Banda’

Filed under: Breaking News |

President Hichilema’s claim that his party’s offer for the vice presidency to Dr Canisius Banda is meant to consolidate the opposition
has merit.

Unllike many senior members of the MMD, Dr Canisius Banda is untainted.

His character is as clean as it was before he joined active politics. He remains an exemplary man. Dr Canisius Banda runs the risk
of soiling his reuptation if he continues to stay in the MMD.

The MMD is only using him to sanaitise itself. Many of the reasons that led to the MMD losing power in 2011 cannot be blamed on this fine son of the
land.

He resigned from the civil service where he served well in June2011 and three months later the MMD was out of power.

In 2011, Dr Canisius Banda was only a victim of circumstances.
However, despite the wind blowing against the MMD that year, he put up one of the most captivating campaigns. His own party ranked him among the top five best campaigners that year. If there was a seat that the MMD thought they would carry in 2011, it was Mandevu. The jury is
still out as to who really won that election because speculations are
many.

I know what I am saying. According to the ECZ tabulations, Dr Canisius Banda results were very impressive. Despite the wind blowing
against the MMD, he increased his party’s fortunes.

Other reasons for him to take up the offer include:

(a) Being a post-independence child, it ushers onto the political stage worthy new actors, who should now take the baton of natonalleadership from our aging founding fathers
(b)It will also show that the UPND accomodates any willing citizen
(c) Whether you like it or not, it actually strengthens the opposition
(d) That Dr Canisius Banda did not look for this position; that it was
offered to him says something flattering about the man, something
worth watching

The MMD can only retain Dr CanisiusBnada for selfish reasons, and not for the interests of Dr Canisius Banda and the nation at larger.
Instead, they ought to be proud that within their midts exist desirable brains that they must learn to treat well and not trash.

On one hand Dr Canisius Banda added value to the MMD, and on the other, the MMD takes value away from Dr Canisus Banda.

I wish the PF had seen what HH has observed.

This is indeed exciting. Let us wait and see.

  10. Dont be cheated. Out of 150 constituencies Upnd can only get good results from 66 constituencies. The rest… And then 62 percent of voters are bemba speaking inclined. I would love HH to be president but he needs to be sorrounded by serious political schemers. That is the only problem with upnd. It has alot of fundamentalists who are so difficult to advise. With such moves on canisius banda i can foresee the mmd fielding a candidate in feira spoiling the opportunity for upnd to have the first mp there. Upnd has an opportunity to win lukulu and kapiri because mmd has stayed away then you stab them at the back? Mark my words. If you have access to the upnd leadership advise them. May God bless you.

    • iyo kwena, your blog name explains exactly who you are. let the doctors like any other professional participate in politics or whatever they want!!! If you insist, then let all the professionals move out of politics and it should be left for riff ruffs. lawyers (winter, sakwibwa,etc) should go back to practice in court, accountants (milupi, bob sichinga, etc) should go to work in financial institutions and so on…So then who is going run politics??

    • Narrow thinking. There is no special degree or educational qualifications for anybody to be MP. If PF does not have medical professionals to be in parliament, do extend that to other political parties.

  20. If only voting was for the learned,zambia would ve been a better place to be.Because leaders would be of high calibre and of subtance! unlike leaders who cant even read the economic status of country,all they know is talkin en crackin rubbish jokes which do not take us anywhere.Its the elite who tolerate such.As for the upnd leadership,they are well balanced en its such brains we need at the helm of governance.Such leaders will show you how to create wealth coz own their own they have done it and everyone is able to see.

  21. I rarely comment on this platform but at times im forced to guide. Canisius was born and bread in mandevu lusaka. He is not a factor in Eastern province. A president in zambia needs votes from Luapula and northern provinces. Whether HH can get votes i do not know. HH has to work with MMD otherwise it is easier for MMD to work with PF. Fact

  27. Fellow countrymen and women, what have we got 2 offer 2 our generation and the future generation of our young zambia if we cant see sense in this writer by agitating that HH and Dr. Canisius ar going nowhere. Luk at Sata and Dr Scot, they were in UNIP, MMD and now PF-same ideas and same style of governance. HH and Dr Canicius have already worked 4 themselves and the just want 2 serve Zambia unlike the Ukwas, Munkombwes, the Scots with the Kabimbas, Edgars- what hav they got 4 Zambia

  35. Indeed HH will bring sanity in this country looking at his exprience especially investment wise & he needs a team of level headed people like Dr. Banda. We need a complete leadership revolution, as much as we need the old, the likes of Kaunda, Munkombwe,Sata, Chikwanda etc for consultations, Zambia needs the new generation to take up the challenge of leadership & develop our beloved country.

    Nyati - April 18, 2013

    • We don’t even need them for any consultations. Zambia needs a founding father from this generation, not these greedy useless analogue thinkers. They don’t even understand the challenges of this 21st century. They should retire. Retirement means you stop work and rest, never to work again. They are all useless.

      • I can help him or her. Let HH identify the real enemy. He needs MMD more than mmd needs UPND. He has to make sure he does not annoy mmd because if he does, mmd can easily go to bed with pf. The furthest upnd can get is 25percent right now meaning that 75 percent is jointly held by pf and mmd. I know this is very painful but is a fact.

He has his own personality. it is matter of fact personality. he has so far refused to promise heaven on earth. he has his own program and definite tasks for his presidency. in my view those will lay a strong foundation for growth, empowerment and poverty eradication. he is the right man for the job
