Sata suddenly cancels swearing-in ceremony

Filed under: More News |

michael_sata_ficha_biografiaState House has suddenly cancelled a swearing-in ceremony that that was scheduled for 08 hours today.

President Michael Sata was supposed to swear-in some yet to be identified officials but the ceremony was called off without explanation.

The government-controlled news agency has circulated a news diary that Sata will be swearing in some people this morning but it later said the ceremony had been postponed to Monday.

It is not yet known who was supposed to be sworn in but it could be an opposition MP who changed his mind at the last minute.

Or maybe the opposition MP did not change his mind but Sata who often walks with the aide of walking-stick nowadays is not feeling well and can  not stand long enough to peep into cameras.

  3. Don’t waste your time talking politics when others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Zambian poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accident cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (USED.CO)not dot com, to see the various methods and companies that she was using (USED.CO) not dot com, it is A very simple idea but a very powerful One, Wake up Africans(USED.CO)

    • How many virgin American boys and girls have been vaccinated for cervical cancer?Why virgins and not those who are practicing.Let us not just accept anything for the sake of accepting.Please fellow country men and women.Zambia has just become a dumping site for everything.Kaseba stop cervical cancer vaccines as this has more harm to us who for a longtime cancer is not part of our culture.Cancer is theirs in Britain and America.Please leave our young virgins alone.How many young grandchildren to Mr Sata have been vaccinated for cervical cancer.I have started this campaign against vaccinating our beautiful virgins for cervical cancer.Please it is too much as State house is just in the habbit of accepting anything.Please my children forget take your money.Let us not just talk about Zambeef.Please share this if you can as Zambia is in trouble.ABASH TO CERVICAL CANCER VACCINES.

      • Before making unfounded conclusions you hear in compound gossip do your research:
        *HPV vaccine is give to ‘virgins’ because they have not yet been exposed to the virus
        *Most humans will get HPV (symptom less until cancer) and since our ‘christian nation’ doesn’t practice safe sex and most have compromised immune systems the country has higher than normal rates of cervical cancer. Again we have lack of access to contraceptives (since its taboo and un-christian) and few women go for PAP smear tests. All these issues have culminated in us having high rates of cervical cancer.

        Don’t live in ignorance. If you wish to preach to stop the vaccine then you better start preaching to these virgins to condomise and go for regular PAP smear tests.

  13. “and can not stand long enough to peep into cameras”. translated into his native Bemba would mean “ukuloleshamo muli fimashini fya fikope”.

  14. Ngoma was to be sworn in as D/Minister but family, friends and party officials will be holding some celebrations today and tomorrow. So postponed to Monday. Do not be emotional and insult, we have lost this one; let us go back to the drawing table. Speculation about a walking stick will not help our dwindling fortunes as opposition.

    • Walking stick,fly wisky,fedora,cowboy hat is all personal selling tactics. HH should wear cowboy hat and in his hand a golden baton!

      Puungwa - June 22, 2013

  15. Sata wants to break down ZAMBEEF, thinking it will cripple HH as a major beef supplier. If it was possible he would have nationalised it but he fears investors losing confidence in Zambia. I am told Sata has imported 2,000 cattle from Tanzania and we are yet to find out where he got the money from.

    Since ZAMBEEF is not funding PF they want to bring it down. Beware of PF tactics. Dictators always fall. It is a matter of time, Sata will fall and made to account for his misdeeds.

    • and he is being helped by the Post. just watch the way Fred M’mambe has incessantly been making it front page news.

    • Do you mean HH must be left alone even if he poisons Zambians

      Kalu - June 21, 2013

      • that meat is said to have from the U.K & the U.S. H.H is Zambeef’s biggest supplier of beef, so their must be political manoeuvrings to fix him somewhere, somehow.

        eagle's eye - June 21, 2013

  16. I think it is better to address the nation, on a number of issues like economy,state of our nation politically, the shooting of residents in chongwe,shortage of parafin etc and make first hand answers available to zambians from the president himself.As of now the president has over sworn in positions or people.

  17. H.E. President M.C. Sata must have some strange supenatural powers. I’m 48 and I’ve never looked at someones’ picture and it produces his voice in my mind…

  27. The Almighty God holds our lives in his hands. The UPND cadres and their leaders thought that Sata was dying soon. God has ashamed them. The man is still going on strong and fit. Your enemies Mr. President will feel even more ashamed when they see you standing for a 2nd term in 2016. God bless our dear president in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    • U easily forget how SATA was celebrating other peoples illness. GKunda, FTJ & Levy.

      Today u want to paint SATA as loved by God than anybody else.
      Sata the adulterous man with a chain of children for so many women.

      atase…. Even the Devil can control someone in leadership. How did rogue leaders ascend to POWER? Sata included!!!!

    • take it from me, I pity you ba pf cadres. the truth and only the truth is sata will not finish his term of office while in statehouse. God of heaven and earth can not allow satanism to control his children while he is in control. sata and his minions are busy importing wizards at statehouse. on labour day he even admitted using witchcraft to ward off his enemies
