SOLWEZI East MMD member of parliament Richard Taima says there will be a serious electoral showdown in Solwezi should his party go ahead with its latest plans to hound out those serving in the current government.

Commenting on President Michael Sata’s assurance to all opposition MMD members of parliament serving in the government that his administration will take urgent and practical interventions to ensure that they are protected against all forms of harassment and intimidation, Taima said during an interview yesterday that the assurance could not have come at a better time.

President Sata, who urged the affected members of parliament to draw comfort, courage and lessons from Stephen Masumba’s victory, said even in the worst case scenario, their parliamentary seats were safe as they were guaranteed adoption under the PF ticket.

Taima said there was information that the MMD’s plan was to kick out its members of parliament serving in the government.
He also congratulated Masumba for shaming his critics by retaining the Mufumbwe seat on the PF ticket.

“They were going out of their way to kick us out of the party so that we can force by-elections and that includes Solwezi East,” he said. “But I can’t say that came officially to me.”

Taima said there was excitement among some MMD members in North Western Province where they were peddling lies that he had ‘lost’ his parliamentary seat.

“I am more than ready,” he said, adding that what he had done in Solwezi East may not be much but it spoke for itself. “If as per their MMD plan they had won Mufumbwe and decided to hound us out of the party, they are more than welcome. The people of Solwezi East are solidly behind me.”
Taima said he was already receiving phone calls from Solwezi East as information about threats to hound him out of the party filter through to the constituents.

“If these rumors may turn out to be true some day, I can assure you that it can be a serious showdown,” said Taima. “I have a lot of support from the people of Solwezi East.”

And another MMD member of parliament serving in the PF administration told The Post yesterday that many of them were eager to ditch the MMD because it was a sloppy party that could not detect UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s schemes to destroy the former ruling party.

“The people in MMD are somehow very dull politicians because the UPND have seen the loopholes in MMD and it wants the MMD to expel their people so that when they do that, they will say it is UPND which is popular in that constituency,” the source said. “MMD is not able to detect that their alliance is just a shallow one.”

  1. MR. TAIMA JUST TRY TO HAVE A BY-ELECTION AND YOU WILL BE BADLY HAMMERED THIS TIME BY UPND.

    NO ONE WILL FOOL THE UPND NOT TO STAND THIS TIME. IF UPND STANDS, TAIMA YAKUMBUYO WILL COIL HIS TAIL BETWEEN HIS LEGS

  5. This is without doubt a site that people need to get behind. The problem is, no one wants to do a huge deal of reading and not have something else to stimulate the mind. This is the internet, after all. Maybe if you added a video or two to emphasise your point. Ill stick around, FOR SURE. But, I dont know if others will.

  12. Why have we become so wasteful? Never seen nor heard the whole presidency sinking low to encourage the opposition MPs to resign and guarantee their automatic re-nomination…does he realise the cost implications of such….let us focus on developing the country for the better of the poor.

  15. the money which have been used in this by election were supposed to give clean water by digging more boreholes to mufumbwe resident,in this regard,I’m appealing to the technocrats sitting in the constitution draft to cleary add this important clause I quote:no poaching of MP’s from the opposition parties to avoid unnecessary by election.

  16. If you a devil’s child, he (devil) is not bothered at all about what you do. But if you are a child of God, the devil is really not sleeping because of you. He will try by all means to distract your attention from the things of God. Like wise Sata is not bothered about MMD because the two are one and the same.He (Sata) has just changed the habitat. He is bothered about UPND because he has never been part of it.

  21. This time wherever they will a by- election, Upnd should go it alone. Upnd stop these useless alliances & organise growth own your own. This is your time to grow, use it & let MMD be buried piecefully.

  22. This is confirmation that the PF have failed in their political bargaining and only want to use voting numbers, so that they can pass stupid things like the first lady’s slush fund and unplanned districts.

  26. The NINE MMD MPs in Sata’s government are practically PF cadres.First of all is that, the opposition does not benefit from them when it comes to voting in Parliament.They vote with the PF.It is high time MMD took the Bull by its horns.Come March,2013,all these chaps should be offloaded back to their constituencies so that they get a fresh mandate from the voters as Masumba has done.I have suggested March next year because by then PF will be stinking right up to their pants.

        • what does taima mean when he says, “if as per their MMD plan”? does it mean that he was not supporting his party in the mufumbwe by elections? does it mean,he sees himself not a part of the MMD. and when these mps are disciplined ati, the party was unfair. all these mps like taima and masumba are foolish,but not as much as the zambian people themselves because you allow to be played,manipulated by these people.

  32. Good move – it will be PF everywhere. Leave the mad movement of dogs (MMD) and join the boat cruise. We will wallop them again and again like in Mufumbwe. We will not rest until PF is in the Northern, Eeastern, Western, and Southern pa last. We are UNSTOPABLE bwana – boma ni boma! Kufwa kuntongela baisa ba PF! Zambia calo cesu. No need for the opposition says man of action.

  34. They are just idiots all of them stupid punks wasting tax payers money to fulfill there gay ego look at the idiots in pf, MMD AND UPND these are all self centered bastards maggots from hell making life difficult for us Zambians that pay tax, they play with our money

  35. This is all rubbish coming from this unprincipled Taima. Zambians we have a serious problem, surely if we meant well for this country we can’t allow this Poor Finishers to continue taking us for granted by allowing bye-elections whose implications are detrimental to our economy. Seriously i don’t see this country developing with this mentality.

    Our friends in Botswana are far much better because of good attitude towards the development of their country.

    Shame PF govt and your poverty stricken Taima’s.

  39. And I think one way of avoiding these elections is to insist that if a Parliamentarian looses the sit via expulsion the person who got the second best votes should be ushered in Parliament. So that we do not have unnecessary by election which costs us so much much more than the money that will go for development in the constituency

  40. By elections for what? You guys stop waisting our money,those billions can be used for other developmental activities. Taima is even boasting of a by election! what kind of nonsense is this?Do you people realise that the money you are using for these uncalled for elections is tax payers money?We are working day and night producing for our mother zambia at the end of month heavely and dangerously Taxed and the idiots are busy waisting our money.Please stop this rubbish,when are we going to develop our country imwe Ba fikala
