Masebo Left In Cold At UPND

Sylvia Masebo, the former Chongwe member of parliament, is being sidelined heavily by the opposition UPND to a point where her position as chairperson for mobilisation has almost been rendered irrelevant.

Ms Masebo, a once forceful member of the MMD where she was known as the “ever green” minister, has pulled back and is rarely seen attending UPND events.

It has been unearthed that this is because the party’s top leadership has on many occasions ignored her political advice and not given her room to fully discharge her duties as chairperson for mobilisation.

“She’s actually on the edge, but she’s stuck about what move to make next and this is somehow the end of her political career,” a senior official in the UPND has revealed.

Ms Masebo played an instrumental role in Michael Sata’s PF prior to the 2011 elections but her zeal for active politics seems to have waned after joining the UPND.

“A once vibrant politician in Sylvia Masebo has been finished just like that in the UPND. This is the biggest problem we have in our party; we destroy good politicians who come to join us. Look at ba GBM! He was frustrated until he left,” another senior party member has revealed.

      If you change your altitude towards non Tongas but if you continue frustrating those joining UPND forget about forming government

    Some reporter here sharing only their opinion or is it assumptions why she is not in the party activities limelight without first posing a question as “Hon. Masebo we in the media have observed you seem to have taken a back seat in your party’s activities can you shed some light on your role, what is either happening or not happening to help us understand!” before sharing some conspiracy shrouded views on Ms. Masebo and her UPND!

    Ba UPND…don’t just react on anybody who exposes a lapse in yo party.This has been a trend for a while now.I know u a bubbling with confidence that 2021 is yo year of taking over governance of this country but my advise to u is to work with everyone including some opposition parties regardless of whether u think they ar of no impact.For sometime now I have heard most of yo top leadership saying that they don’t need to work with any party to win an election coz they think with or without an alliance,victory in 2021 is guaranteed.I don’t think that’s helping u at all.My advise to u is that u should NEVER write off PF at this stage based on their poor economic performance in the recent past but work towards having more people on board including those in the current Govt.Remember too that u have a very weak grassroot foundation policy the major reason u have been losing elections in the past.The position of Sylvia masebo can not be ignored.If u think that she is under performing,I wud suggest u find someone else who is going to mobilise the party structures at Ward levels nd below.This is wea voters ar but knowing how arrogant some staunch members ar in yo party,I may just receive insults.Is this how u intend to Govt this country?Insulting anyone who tells u yo weaknesses?

      Wow @mlase I like your view of things if only the upnd can see things in that way… Iate president m.c sata, may his soul rest in peace, knew that he would definitely win in 2011 but he was willing to form a pact…upnd is in its own disorganized I wonder what makes them think they will get support from more that 50% of the Zambians

      Ba mayo ba Masebo the upnd has become an incubator to finish politicians GBM Banda Maureen Saboi and Mabenga got finished politically for embracing upnd. This time it has turned into a political graveyard. You would have done better to heed Saboi Imboela’s advice where she proclaimed to the whole world that Tongas claim not to be tribalists when it suits them politically but again change when they can use tribe to there advantage. Forget about the economy even if the PF government introduces free mealie meal and fuel. The people of southern province will still not vote for PF. upnd winning in 2021 is like saying Kambwili or Kalaba are going to win parliamentary seats in southern province. You don’t need to have the gift of a prophet to predict this. Yes the common mantra of upnd these days is to insult and pose the question “You are not God”but God has given us eyes ears and the brains to discern. These At the moment indicate upnd winning on social media while losing in the booth

    U keep saying 2021 PF Zwaa wen u have not even put up a proper strategy of how u will vote them out.Just to remind my colleagues in UPND once more…don’t think PF will sit idle nd let off power easily.PF knows the consequences of losing power as such expect a serious fight frm them.I have been in PF in all these years nd know better their winning strategy.UPND is of no match wen it comes to this.Year in year out wen UPND loses an election,they blame the player.Don’t blame the player basa but blame the game.To be honest…PF can only lose 2021 election if people want change of governance nd not because UPND has a better governance policy than PF.Watch 2020 nd see how PF will begin coming out just to convince the electorates that they still have life in them to improve this failing economy.U snooze u lose badala

      Come on gentlemen come to your senses. Surely you could even talk of people whom we have seen to politicize in their own interest. Today they are in water tomorrow in ashes are they really for us? If you want follow them and you will remain in the ditch yelling for rescue but to no avail By the way who told you that Silvia has been left in the cold? How do you expect her to mobilize the UPND when the public order act is not so effective. Permits are being denied, let masebo speaks for herself $ not picking your dirt finger in her. For you tribalist talking of Tonga’s I Berg you in the name of Christ to mature. God didn’t create a tribe but human beings by the way whoever talks of tribe is the one who is the most tribal Remember it’s ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION.

    Unruly Pf thugs have suppressed the rights and freedoms of the women in opposition. Pf has enough stock of teargas cannisters, machetes and now guns to use on the opposition seen mobilising. Silvia has opted for door to door meetings. GBM went back to pf to eat, he has already fattened just a few months in pf. They have gone back to pf to make the economy worse. Genuine and principled leaders, like HH are trusted & donot give citizens headache.

    Only in PF where a cadre can slap a minister, justice minister for that matter and no displinary action is taken by any authority. Given Lubinda has been left out in the cold in PF. He is currently facing displinary charges for refusing to shake hands with the PF thug leader,Moonga,who organized the beating up of the Justice minister. “Mr Lubinda is a disoriented,frustrated and dejected figure” said a PF source. “He is not wanted in PF, just look at the way he is being victimized by both senior and junior officials”, said another. Meanwhile, sources within PF say Mr Lubinda may just be waiting for the right time to leave the party.

    I can’t agree more with you Mlase, the weakness upnd has is what we call in bemba ” munshebwa”. They don’t seem to take criticism well, starting from their leader and now it has gone down to the grass roots. For instance just on this platform any one who points any wrong in upnd will be insulted right, left and center. How will they take criticism once they are in power if they can’t get it now?In bemba we say ” Ichi kwanka ba chimwena ku mapalanya.” Your current behavior is a good prediction of your future behavior.
    Another saying that may help upnd is ” ichisendo ku nkoko ku nakilila.”
    How do you insult electorates before you are elected? I hope upnd can learn to humble themselves.

    The boat has become stuck in mud. water has vanished as a result of drought. Equally pf members are stuck and can’t think beyond HH. Their thoughts are ever on HH and Upnd, no wonder the stagnant economy. Masebo is adult enough to speak for herself. Pf has damaged the economy to a level of destitution.

    Sylvia Masebo is still very active and is actually a minister in waiting in the incoming government. Zambia reports needs to stir some controversy to get a reaction and they also need to do such to survive so we understand it’s ok.

    Masebo messed her self up when she left PF.UPND has not accepted her fully.But the real reason for Masebo’s quietness is that she has a big issue to sort out.She fired ZAWA top management but lost the case and the government has to pay the officers colossal sums of money.Masebo has to pay the lawyers who defended her.She talks too much but there islittle or no substance in what she talks.
    If Masebo cannot go to Pf she can join MMD or NDC.
