UPND, NDC Fall Out

The opposition UPND and NDC electoral pact has fallen out, with leaders of the two political parties exchanging bitter words through the media.

The NDC and UPND had agreed to support each other in the Lubwa ward and Katuba constituency by-elections.

For Lubwa, the NDC was to field a candidate while the UPND took Katuba, with both pledging support to the other.

However, the UPND decided to field a candidate for Lubwa as well, a development that has rattled NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili who now says UPND president Hakainde Hichilema cannot be trusted.

But Hichilema has told Byta FM that the party had always contested by elections and nothing stops them from doing so and accused “small parties” of just wanting to “eat” from the UPND.

“We have always done it as UPND. what will stop us now? we don’t need Tembo or Kambwili. Some of these small parties are just there to eat from us. UPND is not a charity organization,” Mr Hichilema is quoted as having said, adding that his party does not need allies to win the Katuba by-election.

He also called on Mr Kambwili to tone down and “be grateful to UPND” for aiding him with votes in the Roan constituency by-election.

However, Mr Kambwili has expressed disappointment with Mr Hichilema and the UPND for fielding a candidate in the Lubwa ward by-election in Kitwe.

“This will really test the political mettle of our party now that we can’t rely on UPND votes,” said Mr Kambwili.

    Yabaaaaaaaaaaa do you think kambwili can work well with anyone, the problem with upnd is that instead of convincing the people who don’t believe in them,they are busy inviting these tuma one person parties and call themselves as opposition alliance.HH can win an election without the alliance cause they are less than 20 and have no following like HH.please convince other regions to vote for you.ftj was from the north of our country but Western, southern,central even estern was MMD strong holds not until sata convinced some people from these area to turn against MMD.kambwili not so long ago was insulting other tribes and today you think he can respect you.defectors or what ever you call them don’t even make up 1% of voters but you are busy trying to bring them to your side instead of convincing the 99% of the voting populous.anyway …..

    Iam in full support of HH, if we start engaging small political parties in some areas of bye elections of saying we put ndc as candidate for certain ward and upnd don’t put your candidate for that area does not work that way, let ndc fill they candidates alone since they have just formed the part, alliance its early atleast 2021 it can work. If us in upnd not fill in candidates in some areas in the name of alliance we are losing meriege and popularity the name which remain is ndc believe me you.

    I did not expect this “courtship” to last but I did not expect it to end this early either. Bwafya!!!!

  7. Miti Famubi

    Please let us be good patriots and let us love our country by protecting it. This is not a good development. Let us learn to respect one another.

  8. Dude

    UPaNDown is not charity….. yaaabaaaa kikikikkikikik.

  9. VM

    Each one for himself on wards not on mps baba, that’s how the arrangement was suppose to be

    • MJ

      All the pact HH has been involved in have failed, what can stop this one?

      • AUTONORMOUS MOUTH

        Ba guy during Sata did the same,i wonder y Hh behaves like that.Anyway Umulembwe wa cipuba.

  10. Mr Peace

    Kambwili…so you were getting to lead that party thinking that you would join hands with Hh.Condolence,the river is yours alone to swim across.Hh is a man of himself.He can never work with anyone.I wonder if at all Zambia will have bilateral trades if he may come into power.

    UPND is digging its own grave. Infact this is the begining of the end of UPND. All i can urge Kambwili and the NDC is to go it alone and contest the Lubwa and other coming by-elections . Kambwili is popular on the copperbelt, Luapula,Muchinga, Northern, Lusaka and the urban areas of central province. Come 2021,Kambwili will do better than upnd in these provinces, maybe only second to pf. HH knows this and that is why he is acting like this. Lastly, i would like to urge honourable Kambwili not to campaign for UPND in Katuba as he promised yesterday.

    When we say Hakaivotela heka is SELFISH you don’t want to listen.Ichikwanka ba chimwena kuma palanya. People be aware!

  14. Mpemba Nkule

    This is democracy at work.We accept the outcome.

  15. Central power

    Birds of the same feathers flock together….. This is how you give pf opportunities to win where they are not suppose to win …..put yo heads together if you really think guys.

  16. Bashikulu Em2a

    A pact or whatever arrangement has and will never work in Zambia between political parties because of selfishness.

  17. Royson Nsama

    UPND are just thieves, how can we describe a traitor ,Hichilima or anything that you are called just stop politics, cause you are going no where,,, do something meaningful with yourself and stop dividing the Zambia,

  18. Lombe kalando

    Congratulations pf

  19. Royson Nsama

    HH you are a good farmer and not a politician,if you continue with this Evil mind you are just wasting your time in politics.”ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION “, STOP deceiving the people of Zambia, and help our current government in changing (moving) the country to the other LEVEL, I have heard you saying you are fighting for the Zambian people Do that by action and not by deceiving and telling all sort of lies to people stop putting your person problems in the Zambians hands if the government errors you are OK to advise them.

  20. Fisunge

    Royson nsama you’re right this boy hh will just leave us fighting and he will leave the country my friends voting is like marrying for its for better for worse to every thing.theres for worse

    Hakainde can’t work with a bemba as history has told us he failed to work with mama nawakwi ba sata GBM ba Patrick chisanga the list is endless who is kambwili? We new that they want go far kambwili has been dribbled so this is a lesson a bitter one for that matter you cannot trust a failure 5times to help you or come back to pf instead of pleading crying you will make yourself foolish

  23. bk

    Bangoshe babili tabalala culu cimo..napwisha.

  24. brown

    Silly comments add no value, let kambwili feel how it feels to be independent. Did he defect to make alliance with upnd? Imwe BA koswe have you forgotten how kambwili use to insult upnd? Mr kambwili just be alone

  25. Eric Phiri

    We always tell you that hh with small letters cannot work with a Bemba or Easterner,people of Zambia wake up especially uyo Madumbo chibwili

  26. Milimo MM.

    We all new that the aliance is just there for now. It can never last. If UPND had stuck with the UPND-PF alliance, HH would have been president of ZED. but as usual, playing double standards after an agreement, UPND might remain the biggest opposition party for a few decades to come

    • Civilised

      Upndead will remain the biggest opposition for eeever, period! !

  27. Keegan moonga

    We need to be very careful as upnd , these small parties they just want to eat us,,,The move which the upnd is acceptable to me because if we increase the number of these small parties they will start fighting us. Actually if we are not careful this party upnd will be destroyed by NDC. Zambia forward fye

  29. Mucende

    HH is just OK…no need of working with Kambwili, if it means losing by-elections, let it just be so than combining with these defecting guys, let them fulfill their plans independently

  35. Man chilu

    Imagine if the Upnd could start doing that wouldn’t it be the end of Upnd?

  36. James Mukuka

    Looks like Kashimba Chimbwili is the only human being in Zambia who doesn’t know that he’s just BEING USED. Typical of one HH! This alliance nonsense cannot work, it will go nowhere as long as Hakainde is involved. This guy is so self-centered. Only time will tell..

  37. BJ

    Our dear learned Tonga bull, lost it out when the gallant man and son of the soil, Shi Chilufya, MHSRP. Had the same political alliance which would have made him President of this great nation. What did he do? Because of being what he is, he went his way. Napapene mwipapa! Nseloleshafye!!!

  38. The Comrade

    I doubt HH can say such words,

    • Me

      If you doubt he said those words then you don’t know him. Take time to know him boyi before it is to late.

  39. Elijah Chipulu

    Hh you are a full stupid cow

  40. Chi.2

    Dont doubt that hh said that my friend,think first abt how ck nd hh used 2 xchange bad words sum years back.Politics ni dirt game bliev u me.

  41. Doubt Katwishi

    People refer to the report dated 14th June 2019, entitled ” EIU sees PF winning 2021 election”. If you think of it they were not far from the truth. You will see from the comments that people never took their forecast and advice seriously. Yet their predictions are slowly coming to pass.

  42. Chi.2

    U can easily find such things n dirt games full stop!!

  43. Man mude

    Full stop that’s so.

  44. Bruno mars the moonshine jungle master

    You wathogs leave hh alone you are jealous idiot just form your paties if you want SHIT

  45. James

    Don’t use bitter words Mr K,,,,,,,, how old is your party sir?
    HH is right your(small) party wants to eat from his party which he has sacrificed alot for it to be where it is now.
    Focus on setting a very strong foundation for your party sir.

  46. One zed manex

    Bemba’s and Tonga’s who are the tribalism tribe? Can some one answer and help us?

  47. Beston Goodson Kangwai

    Presindent ck just be alone why are you connecting with other parts test yourself on the ground.

  48. Joseph malombe

    My appeal to my fellow Zambians is that,who ever enters in the jungles does not expecte to hear dropping: ( Uwaingila mumushitu, tomfwa inswaswa.)What does it mean? I just want to tell you all who are via ring in

    • Joseph malombe

      To be continued: to tell those via ring in politics when you form a party,don’t feal coward but put your effort to show people that you mean to do it and people seeing your effort,they will ad more effort times two.pact in Zambia can not and it will never work because of secret ambitions.

  49. CH13

    H.h is a tribelist nd selfish man…nd nothing he can do to our mother zambia.
    For chishimba kambwili itx worse is corruptive already..

  50. Angoni

    It was expected. Only a tonga must rule formula. CK must be visionary for him to be president of Zambia, so CK has felled to read the game correctly. HH cannot work with Bembas and Easteners.

  51. Chi.2

    If hh cant work with bembas nd easterners,am really sorry my friend he z not ready then 2 rule this nation.

  52. CONCERNED CITIZEN

    Dr kambwili you cant work with HH he is a treacherous character. He failed to work with Mr sata because of greediness.

  53. Mn

    its surprising mwe

  54. Triple c

    HH give chance to your friends maybe things can work, or is it because you’re the only one in UPND with money? Look at the past 5 president’s, we didn’t vote for them because of money no it’s not like that. If you think you use money to rule this country you’re wasting your time.
