Lubinda is very treacherous- insist PF

Filed under: More News |

Patriotic Front (PF) Lusaka District Chairman, Goodson Banda, says his stance to add pressure to allow former Foreign Affairs Minister, Given Lubinda, to resign were not personal but the truth as backed by other senior ruling party officials, including opposition MMD Spokesperson, Dora Siliya.

Mr Banda maintained that Mr. Lubinda is very treacherous against the party in government.

Mr Banda says he is happy that he and other people have been vindicated on Mr Lubinda’s alleged under-hand methods.

He was speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today.

MMD Spokesperson and Petauke Member of Parliament (MP), Dora Siliya, is quoted as having said Mr Lubinda cannot be trusted.

However, Mr Lubinda accused Ms Siliya of being lonely and using him to de-contaminate her image.

“I’m happy that some of us have been vindicated because I am not the only person who wants Mr Lubinda out of the ruling party, PF. The sentiments by Ms Siliya are true in that Mr Lubinda is treacherous and cannot be trusted,’’ Mr Banda said.

He further warned Mr Lubinda, who is PF Kabwata MP that his campaign mounted in Kabwata constituency ahead of a possible by election would not yield anything.

Mr Banda vowed that Mr Lubinda cannot win in Kabwata Constituency, adding that the road network in the constituency leaves much to be desired as they are dilapidated.

The Lusaka District PF Chairman said he is aware of Mr Lubinda who has recruited opposition youths from the UPND and ULP as well as some from the ruling PF who are engaged in campaigns in Kabwata.

Mr Banda stressed that Mr Lubinda lost an opportunity when he served in government as Foreign Affairs Minister and should not be allowed to travel out of the country again to represent government because he was a traitor.

Meanwhile, Mr Banda says the people in Lusaka and Zambia as a whole have realised the need to belong to the ruling party.

He said the PF Lusaka District was growing because of cadres defecting to the ruling party to be part of the development agenda set by the party and Republican President, Michael Sata.

“Our party is very strong not only in Lusaka district but the country as a whole. People are joining us leaving their own parties because they support the PF policies and there is nothing to offer in their opposition political parties,” Mr Banda said.

  2. All of you who think PF is becoming popular are in for a rude shock come 2016. People have observed and have concluded that that what was said about crtain individuals in 2010-2011 was true and it has cme to bear on them. What to do now as things are, use Mr. Munkombwe’s approach theory, eat with them while it lasts, time is ticking and damp them.

    Anyway…personal opinions. On the other hand I don’t feel sorry for Given after seeing the way he was debating to remove RB’s immunity, with hands in his pockets and some air of pomp instead of being humble, he deserves what is coming onto him.

  5. Banda stop yapping, Lubinda doesn’t need to campaign in Kabwata Constituency, he is a very hardworking MP and will remain our MP for as long as he is alive. That seat has been given to him by God not ifipuna fyakwiba. Leave Lubinda alone

  6. “The people in Lusaka and Zambia as a whole have realised the need to belong to the ruling party…” What kind of rubbish is this, which Zambia as a whole is he talking about? We know you are in politics to eat as rightly put by Munkombwe so stop speaking on everyone’s behalf as if you know what we are thinking. Continue eating but remember, one day mukaluka!!!

  7. MR GOODSON BANDA WAS FIRED IN ZAWA FOR STEALING MONEY BELONGING TO THE COMMUNITY RESOURCES BOARD. HE IS MORE TREACHEROUS THAN LUBINDA. ANYWAY THEY SAY A THIEF RECOGNISES A FELLOW THIEF BCOZ THEY MEET AT WORK(THIEVING)

  8. What Good Banda is saying simply shows hatred against Given Lubinda. He(Given)may have betrayed the party PF and the committee to decide the way foward was convened and the final decission of suspending Mr Lubinda was arrived at.
    Goodson is also treacherous,why is he acting with anger as though Lubinda insulted his mother? surely there is urgent need to displine him before his behavious goes out of hand.

  10. Lubinda is strange, cannot be trusted and so too Mutati, the two have no morals. They have no integrity and never again should Zambians vote for people who have no passion for ‘secret’ and public righteousness which is all-round integrity and not sly talk and behaviour. Mwanawasa had integrity and passion for the country, he was upright not these imbibers of Alcohol!

  11. MR GOODSON BANDA HAS A BONE TO CHEW WITH HON. GIVEN LUBINDA. I WISH TO REMIND HIM THAT A DECISION WAS MADE BY THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE WHICH SAT AND DECIDED MR LUBINDAS’ CASE. WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT, A DECISION WAS MADE AND HE HAS TO ABIDE BY IT. WHY IS HE FAILING TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES THE DIFFERENCE HON. DORAH SILIYA HAS WITH LUBINDA? PF SHOULD START TAKING ACTION AGAINEST JUNIOR OFFICIALS WHO GO AGAINEST THE DECISION OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE LIKE MMD WHERE ANY OFFICIAL AND NON OFFICIAL CAN STAND UP AND ATTACK THE SENIOR MEMBERS WITHOUT ANY ACTION BEING TAKEN. MR BANDA IN MY OPPINION SHOULD BE REPRIMANDED BY THE POWERS THAT BE IN PF. WHY IS IT THAT WHENEVER LUBINDA IS ATTACKED IT BACOMES FRONT PAGE NEWS? COULD IT BE TRUE THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE OUT TO GET HIM BECAUSE HE IS CONSIDERED PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL? ANYWAY, MOST PEOPLE I HAVE INTERACTED WITH CLAIM HE IS. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST SCARED OF HIS POTENTIAL AND ARE OUT TO DISTROY HIM. MBUNJI – KABWATA

  12. MR GOODSON BANDA MUST BE DISCPLINED. THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF PF MADE A DECISION ON MR GIVEN LUBINDA AND WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT HE HAS TO FOLLOW THAT DECISION. WHY IS IT THAT HE IS VERY MUCH AGAINEST MR LUBINDA? I AM SUPRISED THAT HE CAN NOT READ BETWEEN THE LINES WHY MADAM DORAH SILIYA HAS A BONE TO CHEW WITH GIVEN. MY APPEAL TO PF IS CAN THEY DISCPLINE PEOPLE LIKE MR BANDA WHO ARE AGAINEST A DECISION MADE BY THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. WE HOPE THERE WILL BE SANITY IN PF UNLIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MMD WHERE ANY MEMBER IRRESPECTIVE OF POSITION CAN STAND UP AND SAY WHAT THEY WANT TO SAY EVEN ATTACKING THEIR OWN LEADERS. COULD IT BE THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE AGAINEST GIVEN LUBINDA BECAUSE THE GENTLEMAN SEEMS TO BE PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL? ANYWAY THATS WHAT MOST PEOPLE I HAVE INTERACTED WITH SEEM TO BELIEVE.

  14. Yes it is true, Given cannot be trusted to hide away the incompetence, dishonesty, lies and corruption in the PF like other party members.

    This man has some honesty and integrity, and is being punished for telling the truth!

    Sata is no longer allergic to corruption, he is allergic to people exposing corruption in this party.

    Given, just leave this gang of criminals, thieves and liars. Keep better company than that!

  17. Lubinda is a traitor I agree. He betrayed the zambians when he voted along a banch of crooks in PF to remove Mr Banda’s immunity.
