Rainbow Coalition appeals to Mpongwe voters to reject minions and Charlatans who cause bye-election

Filed under: News |

The Zambia Rainbow Coalition is disturbed and appalled by the continued conduct of the men and women we send to Parliament, says Coalition president Cleopas Phiri.

Commenting on the defection of the Mpongwe MMD MP Gabriel Namulambe to the ruling party, Phiri said these MPs  have sold out to the status core by practicing politics of the stomach in disregards to the tenants of democracy.

‘We are deeply concerned about their direct disregard for the electorate and their lack of passion for democracy and good governance. This disregard for the electorate steams from  political malpractice and personal greed  on the part of these Renegade former MMD MP who have resigned from his party to join the ruling PF.

‘It’s disturbing to note that in this era, political mercenaries can be allowed to create unnecessary by elections when their own electorate lack development are wallowing in abject poverty. Whilst we appreciate that it’s their constitutional and democratic right to join or associate with a party of their choices, it’s prudent that a leader be magnanimous’, complained Phiri.

The Coalition thorugh its president also is saddened that the PF led government can ‘embrace spineless Leader like Nalumamba who have for a long time mascaraed as leaders. The Patriotic Party is in danger of democratic genocide. This spirit of winner takes all is against the spirit of good governance.’

‘We call upon all Zambian to decampaign these minions who seek to waste takes payers money out of political expedience.’

He said ‘the people of Mpongwe must reject such charlatan’s and reject any maneuvers to be silenced by vote buying.’

  2. ALL THESE MMD DEFECTORS ARE CHANCERS WHO JOINED IN 2001. THEY WERE ADOPTED INTO A FAMILY (MMD) AND IMMEDIATELY A COPPER SPOON WAS SHOVELED INTO THEIR MOUTHS AND THEIR PERCEPTION OF LIFE IS THAT LUSAKA IS ZAMBIA AND ZAMBIA IS LUSAKA.

    THESE AIMLESS MMD MPs SHOULD GO TO UTH ORTHORPEDIC DEPT. WHERE THEY WILL BE GREETED WITH ACCIDENT VICTIMS WHO HAVE BEEN ON OPERATION WAITING LIST FOR THE PAST YEAR AND DO NOT KNOW WHEN THE OPERATION WILL UNDERTAKEN AS THE DEPT. HAS NO SURGICAL PROVISIONS SUCH AS NEEDLES,SWITCHERS, SCALPTORS AND OTHER LIFE SERVING SURGICAL PROVISION TO CARRY OUT LIFE SERVING OPERATIONS.

    THESE POOR ZAMBIAN ACCIDENT VICTIMS WHO ARE EXCLUDED IN SHARING THE NATIONAL CAKE ARE BEING COMPELLED TO PAY WITH THEIR LIVES FOR THE USELESS EGO TRIPS OF MMD MISGUIDED MPs.

    LET ME WARN YOU THAT THESE 300 ACCIDENT VICTIMS WHO HAVE BEEN AWAITING SURGERY AND DO NOT KNOW WHEN SWITCHERS AND OTHER ESSENTIAL SURGICAL PROVISIONS WILL ARRIVE IN UTH, ARE ALSO DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM. YOU CANNOT HAVE A HOSPITAL LIKE UTH, WITH NO URINE BAGS AND THINK THAT POLITICS IS ALL THIS COUNTRY MUST SURVIVE ON.

    WHEN FDD IS IN OFFICE, DEFECTORS WILL BE BARRED FROM RE CONTESTING ANT PARLIAMENTARY SEAT AND MONEY SERVED TO RECAPITALIZE UTH AND PURCHASE URINE BAGS AND SURGICAL PROVISIONS FOR THE ORTHOPEDIC DEPT.

    TO THEIR LUCK NON OF THESE DEFECTORS FIND THEMSELVE AT THE ILL-EQUIPPED EMERGENCE WARD OF UTH. ABRAHAM IS EVERYBODY’S GRANDFATHER NOT JUST MMD MPs.

  6. Kansi when are others going to be leaders when zambians keep on recycling the same old guards? These are chaps that ruled with levy, RB and they still want to continue with pf. Wats wrong with african leaders? why are they so self centred? who do they really stand for? when namulambe was voted for was he voted for to represent govt or his pipo? Unfortunately our pipo in the villages are always exploited. They are ignorant. They ll still vote for him.

    • True .That is the irony of it all.Any can vote,cant they? even if they do not understand the issues.Every organization is a by-product of its environment.And so every leader is a reflection of the quality of their citizens.Back then anyone who did not have anything to defend;be it education or some wealth was not allowed to vote.It did not make sense then.With hindsight…well…As things stand,Namulambe is going to reclaim his seat.Terms such as Political Economy,Expediency,Politics of Patronage are important to know(Ask the Hon. Namulambe!).We need to have honest people to serve.There are a few around today.That is why we need TRUE CHRISTIANS to serve.So let us not condemn Christians aspiring for high office.

  7. I have no respect for people like Namulambe what a shame. Ati leaders Namulambe Susan Rice has opted to withdraw her name for the sake of the nation. This Zambian politician resigns and denounces his own party what a shameless man.

  11. There is no peace for the wicked, Namulambe will experience no peace until he repents of the injustice he has done to the many poor Zambians who would have benefited in one way or the other from the money which will be used for the by-elections, may he experience hell on earth

  17. AS ONE BLOGGER CORRECTLY SAID, THE NEXT ONE IS NAMUGALA. SHE HAS NEVER BEEN HAPPY THAT NEVERS WON BY SUCH A LARGE MARGIN AGAINST HER MAN.

    THERE ARE VERY FEW PEOPLE IN ZAMBIAN POLITICS WHO TRULY BELIEVE IN DEMOCRACY.

  18. Cleopas is 100% right and all well meaning Zambians should not suport such kind of politians. Honestly why defect? Why not just be a boot liker of PF and not move to waist tax payers’ money for bye elections. Namulambe must be taught a lesson. Its not just fair bane….

  19. The only way to change this behaviour is to campaign that the new draft constitution includes a clause that when a sitting MP crosses the floor,his/her party should have the right to nominate a replacement.

    This is happening in other countries and would stop the unnecessary defections and costly by-elections.

    Let us all get a petition signed and demand this to be included in the next constitution otherwise will continue seeing this behaviour and continue waste of financials on unnecessary by-elections.

    • i am in support of your statement. It is not morally right for MPs to behave like that. We know he has no right education to compete for better Jobs with the rest but he should have maintained some level of morality. He is number one disgrace followed with Masumba with Mufumbwe voters occupying 3rd position. The people of Mpongwe still have a chance to show the country that they are serious with governance by not voting for Namulambe.

    • I 100% concur. Brilliant advise. Also in the clause should be that a crossing MP should be given a big beating and get whacked like in the Mafia.

    • I aree wt yoursggestion.Alternatively, the constitution could say if the MP defects, the runner up during the election automatically become MP. You wont see any more defecions.

  25. These MPs of the like of Gabriel are political prostitutes of the lowest class. These are prostitutes who can undress and do anything for as little as a K100 note. Whether the chap wins or not he, is a disgrace.

  26. If Mpongwe people vote for this idiot Namulambe, then they deserve the social-economic problems they are facing. This Namulambe is an idiot who does not deserve re-elction.

  27. How I wish voters had ears to listen so that Namulambe could be taught a lesson.But alas,even voters love politics of the belly.Namulambe’s reasons for defecting are null and void.

    • Nicely stated if only our wishes became reality and it is very frustrating living among many empty bellies. The country will be going for another by election, Namulambe will be adopted and the people of Kafulafuta will give him the votes to continue living in luxury and if not re-elected he may land a diplomatic posting to continue living off the tax payer. We have to be wary of the treachery in presidential meetings with chiefs which of course are campaign strategies targeting defections. MMD must ensure that Namulambe has left a clean house having occupied high office in NEC.
