Hichilema And His MPs Have Abandoned Their Manifesto – MMD Youth

MMD youths have accused opposition UPND leadership of abandoning their own manifesto after they walked out of the house during debate on the Health Insurance Bill in parliament on Friday.

MMD National Youth Treasurer Geoffrey Mulenga described the move by UPND parliamentarians who were acting on instructions from their leader Hakainde Hichilema as an act of cowardice.

He said it has become common knowledge that the UPND leadership will oppose everything even progressive ideas meant for the well being and development of the nation.

Mulenga noted that the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his MPs have chosen to go against their own Manifesto where they proposed to introduce a sustainable health insurance framework for all Zambians because it suits them.

He adds that just like their opposition to printing ballots within the country the UPND have failed to convincingly explain to a common Zambian why they are opposed to the Health Insurance Bill which seeks to improve the well being citizens in the country.

“Yet again HH and his UPND have taken a misleading role in this debate without providing a strong direction to solve the illusions and misconceptions they have about elections. UPND is stuck and fast losing relevance so they are desperately making attempts at not taking a firm position on anything.

“Today HH and his UPND with their numbers in parliament have failed to promote or propose any progressive laws in the interest of Zambians. UPND ironically have opposed the Health Insurance Bill because it best suits them for convenience. They have gone against their own Manifesto where they proposed to introduce a sustainable health insurance framework for all Zambians,” he said.

He called on the UPND leadership to stop changing goal posts on issues because as things stand they seem to have no loyalty to their followers who vote for them based on their manifesto.

He said it was high time that the UPND contributed to the passing of progressive laws in the country saying the same energy they are using to oppose everything should be channelled to more sober and real issues.

“The same way his MPs have walked out on Parliament, that energy should be channelled to more sober and real issues. Issues such as reforms in our electoral system which is time and again a source of conflict whenever we have elections. Instead of contributing to the debate they yet again chose the cowardly way out. They cant debate. They are cowards.

“UPND has the best chance of getting something passed in parliament. But because they have absolutely no loyalty to any fixed position or anyone not even to their followers.

“Which direction is HH and UPND heading? Easy answer: both directions, to further divide Zambians, and above all, to distract us from the real issues surrounding their illegal stay in leadership,” he said.

Further Mulenga urged citizens not to take the UPND seriously because they don’t mean anything they say.

“No one currently should take these guys seriously because they don’t mean anything they say. At any challenging time they can quickly U-turn. They lack the honesty to defend anything they promote. They cant be trusted, its not safe to depend on them because they can dump anything or anyone at any given time.

“What Hakainde and his party should know is that have a fan base and not supporters because they have misunderstood their role in the political discourse of the country.

“Munshebwa aile namashinsha kubuko, HH doesn’t listen to anyone except himself. HH is jumping at every opportunity, If HH had an opportunity he could have even reacted to Zodwa to coming to Zambia.”

He advised Mr Hichilema to realise that Zambia is bigger than him adding that the youths in UPND should also stop following their leaders blindly because leaders will not be there forever.

“HH should quickly realise that this country is bigger than him. Everything should not always be about him, rigging is a process but not an illusion.

“Our advise to the youths in UPND is that they should realize that the future of this country is in their hands, and so they should not follow anything that their leaders says and does because he will not be there forever.

“Our focus as politicians should be on electoral reform and focusing on new electoral laws that guarantee dispute free elections collectively. As opposed to this cry baby mentality they are exhibiting. Because as things stands he is bound to lose again and cry foul,” said Mulenga.

    God Bless Mother Zambia.

    How can MMD members of Parliament
    Contributions be taken serious when their
    Party President is working in a different political party and their members of MMD
    Party feel its normal
    Even in Parliament their contribution are not valid, better to dissolve the party and ask for bye elections,coz where are they going to in 2021 without the party President now let’s avoid problems , if this is in order for Party members of Parliament
    to have no President then they should be all Independent meaning that
    Our Parliament in Zambia is not a court of justice
    Mr speaker kindly let them be in order of the house and be answerable to their Party
    President who should not be employed by a
    Party that is in power of the day
    How then can they put the government of a day to task for service delivery if needs arise
    Let’s look at mistakes and correct them.
    Is it in order for the MMD members of Parliament with their President answerable to
    Another Party Profile, is that not confusing in the house
    I rest my case here

  13. Namakau Amamela

  14. Marker

    It’s true let us not change positions to suit our own.it is not healthy better be principled.

  15. The Jew

    I want to apply common sense to the issue of health insurance. Today it common to hear on the news that this group of people is compiling of not being paid their dues for the past one year. With this in mind can some one tell me how such people will be paying their premier? Don’t forget the unpaid retirees.

  16. Jms

  21. Silencer

    What by and his MPs are doing is flabbergasting .We all know that problem government is corrupt but there some areas they are doing progressive things. That is the reason to why in some country they have temporally ignored the name ‘opposition part ‘ and prefer to use maniority. Because the word opposition makes HH opposition in either decision made.

    If presidents are chosen by God no one can complain because God chooses the Best of the Best and you hypocrisy can be ashamed of your selves

  27. Eddy

    PF are fighting for positions in their party. Some leaders are ready to report corruption activities done by PF to ACC and a letter to mr Lungu is being drafted on Tuesday it will be in his hands. Media make sure you capture the details of this issue.

    In 1991 it was obvious that ftj ‘ll scope..& in 2001 state council scope. In 2011 king king cobra too. But in 2021 we all don’t know lik we didn’t knew that ecl will in 2016..Only God Knows. My appeal goes to all Zambians to ask God to give us the Leader and deal with all the culprits lik Levy did period.
