UPND Boycott Women’s Day Commemorations

UPND Copperbelt chairlady Lilian Michelo has said the opposition political party will not take party in the International Women’s Day Commemorations on grounds that the ruling party was suppressing the opposition.

Michelo says women have continued facing serious attacks especially those belonging to opposition political parties.

She said on several occasions during such activities, women from opposition political parties continue to be harassed without any action from law enforcers.

“We will take the theme as it is yes but as UPND we will not participate in any commemorations, we will meet at our Secretariat to pray because we don’t see it fit to participate in such,” she said.

Michelo of opposition political party women officials have suffered all manner of violence and yet no arrests were made to address such situations.

She said women in rural areas have been denied opportunities to benefit from empowerment programs only because they belong to opposition political parties.

“We have had situations were our women are undressed in public. I think that is not right and based on such brutality, we will not take part as UPND,” she added.

Zambia joins the rest of the World to commemorate International Women’s Day.

    Muletulangisha nemitoto bafitonge imwe,what women are u mwebashumfwa be?

    This kind of politics is showing imaturity, what is the meaning of boycotting a day like this. Women’s day is not for pf,upnd or any party it’s commemorated worldwide, there is nothing concerning politics here.

    • White Mandandi

      I think it is right for opposition parties to boycott this day because PF members are bosses Even when they doing something bad no one is able to arrest them. So for women in the opposition it is better to stay away. Remember what happened to hon CK we are not safe in our own country

  3. Geoffrey Bwamba Mwalya(GBM)

    You choose to undress yourselves at an expense of a political party,I respect women but lm seeing is some don’t respect themselves, sad.

    If any of those women were my wife I would straight away divorce her.anyway I don’t expect any of them to be wives coz they are celebrating their own day.”Happy bitches day “

  29. If there is a wife for someone here devoce that woman because a woman who is tolt can't undress in front of the public.mwema ule.jahovah will punish you because the breast part of a woman is the most respected party.nothing like upnd here this is world wide.

  37. Patrick Mwale

    It’s so sad that women in UPND have shunned the national event .They have gone the Zodwa wabanthu way in terms of their protest.This clearly shows how immoral the women are in the party.They have failed to provide Checks and Balances instead they want to politicize every national event.Shame on them!

  38. ZIGUNDE

    Those who are suporting thise women like JC dot com, i would like to tell u that undressing is not a right, check your facts. Easterners dot undress that is our traditional not undressing. So when u have done something wrong just accept and apolojise to the nation. This is not for UPND or PF but for Zambia. Check you hertred mind. Try to accomodate others.

    For our mothers to boycott in these manner just know that something is wrong in our nation. This does not happen in our country. Government please let the rule of law and separation of power prevail in our nation. The are expressing their grievances.

  60. F .SAKALA

    Plz let’s respect our humanity especially as you women find another away of fighting this game of polities .you are showing your part , my quetion is that do you have men where you are coming from ? The answer is no why nobody who can allow his wife to move naked while a wife of UPND lead is well dressed but what l know is that the nakedness of all women are the same , thus move is not good as our zambian mothers.

  61. Phenomenal

    mmmmmmm am just passing

  62. Summer salt

    Please people!!!! Understand that these are cadres and not wemen, why do you waste energy on straight forward things? No two ways about it, they have forgotten that they are wemen due to constant losses, so Being confused they see no difference between campaign and cerebration!

    The UPND are crying for Zondwa to come and show her nakedness in Zambia. The promoter of the event has already paid SA Rands 35000.
    The amount of money which they wasted on Zondwa could have been given to more than 20 women from UPND, and they would have danced naked for all fools who like to see nude women.

  71. PK CHISANGA

    I respect women a lot. Political parties like UPND must be barred from participating in 2021 on grounds of human rights violations.moo How do you parade women like that? Half naked!…… Just because they are poor. HH where is your conscience? Shame on you!
    What kind of president are you? You’re a very educated fool and useful idiot. Society is incomplete without people like HH.
    HH and UPND Sucks!!’……….,,,,,,

  72. mulongoti

    This is what I call dirtynes of the mind how does one complain on such a day when you had the whole year to complain about anything else ba HH is just finishing the party so that when it’s not through in 2021no one will be associated with it because of its behaviour were tired mwe hh has nothing to offer in this country apart from complaints

  73. Mumba Kenneth
