It’s Silly To Cut Oneself Just To See If You’ll Bleed

Mr Heartson Mabeta is the UPND aspiring 2021 Parliamentary candidate for Kankoyo constituency in Mufulira on the Copperbelt. He has made a tribal posting which reads: “Facts about Kankoyo constituency: Kankoyo constituency has never had a Tonga MP since 1964.”

We are failing to understand how any aspiring Parliamentary candidate in any national party could consider what he’s written a sensible campaign strategy, especially on the Copperbelt. This beats us!
Then when they lose, you hear them cry that “they rigged the elections”.

Mr Heartson Mabeta must know that Mufulira predominantly comprises of people from Luapula Province. How is he going to appeal to those people to vote for him by telling them that they should vote along tribal lines and give a Tonga a chance? Things don’t work like that man.

His posting received a serious backlash from many of his followers and as a way of damage control, he chose to post something else saying “Mwabombeni Ba PF, If you want to get a free advert from the outgoing PF, just dangle a tribal carrot and see how they will quickly bite it. If you know, you know.”

Even if someone could give him a benefit of a doubt, what kind of mindless games or strategy can this be? Why would anyone deliberately cut themselves with a knife just to see if they can bleed? Utter nonsense!

    We want a Zambian MP in kankoyo and not on tribal lines. That’s the thing which has made HH lose six times and he is losing it in 2021. Surely you upnd you cant learn from the son of Africa Late Anderson Mazoka .I personally voted for him but for HH i cant not even at gun point until he changes his tribal tag.

    • Fenwick

      From the bottom of your heart, have you ever heard HH utter any tribal sentiment? All that rhetoric you just gotten it fro the Post Newspaper and PF and sadly you believed..

      Keep this tribalism in your party and home province. Fwebene kuno ku Mufcane we have never been tribalists. Just go and see the list of our mayors and MPs they come from everywhere as long as they are Zambian. You tribalists want to export tribalism to the Copperbelt. Ukutumpa!

  2. Kalok

    This party must just disband. Even if their leader has broken away from nonsense, the rest of his party appears to be in euphoric tribal mode.

  3. Musyani

    I dont know what this guy was smoking, he can’t sell himself to the people,ar least he has shown his true colors those that like voting take note please.

  4. Agent Choonga

    He never said that! This is just a pf propanga to bring hatred between bembas and tongas.They have no good message for the zambians,they wan’t to use “divide and rule” stratege.Actually you will see more of tribal fabricated stories especially on richard sakala’s daily nation news paper.watch out! Don’t allow to be divided by selfish individuals my fellow zambians.Mum is bemba and dad is tonga and iam married to a ngoni woman but i can’t allow to be divided,i vote for leaders on merit.

    In zambia, elections we voted 4 developmt not a tribal or clan but pipo who work 4 us. We hav 72 tribes and no 2 tribal campaign no 2 it. Pipo wil decide not not a tribe and Tonga thing a dead exercise no space in zambia. Zambians i hav final say and decide a person 2 vote 4 candidate.

    Concerned amplified you are right by saying we need a Zambian MP in kankoyo and not on tribal lines. we also need a Zambian president and not a tribal president like HH

    • AFRICAN

      Mr musyani you are right i think his mental fitness must be checked. But even HH says he remove paramount chitimukulu of the bemba from the throne should he win next year election, no wonder us Zambian want to continue with ecl as he has proved that he is not a tribalist.

    • Tikambepo

      Ba Moses you’re the same concerned citizen using two different names we know you and your dirty tricks…….you want to show to the followers that there are more people on the side of the rotten party pf by creating false accounts and different names mwanya this time you’re going no matter what!

  7. John njovu

    Zambians,Zambians,plz let us embrace one another regardless of our political affiliation. This divide,will surely injure our peace in the land.for now EDGAR is quite and busy strategising while the opposition is busy making silly pronouncements.let the civil servants vote for you then remove the bad elements after.but now your threat will scare would be voter.

    Zambia is not for a particular tribe,and Zambia is bigger than all-over us ,to those who impulsing tribe talk are just like animals such as dog’s that fight for a Bon even though the are kept by one person,stop this nonsense,lets love one another

      Each one of us has the right to eat what type of food one wants.I still don’t understand why most people like debating.on candidates.Just waisting your time.

    Political or any form leadership is not determined by one’s tribe but capacity to deliver

  12. JMS

    Every person has his or her opinion,it’s up to any receiver to acknowledge the speech and motive behind. God does things for good and bad criticizers to do so and bad minds will try to pin each person disliked. Beeing patriotic and a Christian brings hamon in a nation,see what occurred to Obama, check wisely who is capable to gain proper development.

    God is not a tribalist but he is a unifier of all tribes. Tribalism has been brought up by UPND .

  14. Curtis

    Let’s be so realistic, we usually hear people say umu Tonga ta katekepo Ichalo, and no one seems to be concerned. In my opinion the candidate is not tribal but fighting tribalism by saying vote for a Tonga to prove that there’s no tribalism in CB.

    First of all who wrote the above article? ZR reporter or Politician? You need to tell us because it is not even professionally written. Just look at the intro anyway Kanatnshi the neighbouring constituency had a Tonga Mp Chakulya Wilson
    Facts are rather twisted. I dont think Mufulira predominantly comprises of people from Luapula Province. I have stayed there for 43 years. The mine area has Easterners, Northerners, Luapulans, Malawians, Tanzanians North Westerners and Southerners. Kamuchanga has a large Luapula oriented population but they arent the majority. The MPs in Mufulira have names that come from Southern Province, Eastern, Copperbelt Eastern, Northern Provinces but these are people who were born on the cOPPERBELT and have never even been to their villages. Just do a research on Mufulira’s prominent people and you will see they are from all over Zambia

  16. Just do it

    This is a pathetic post.. Zambia reports has been compromised… U think we dnt know?? prepare ur selves no one stays at the top 4 ever.. Enjoy now next year u wl arrested all of u spear headin tribalism and blamin upnd to discredit them.. Nothing stays the same for ever

    CONCERNED CITIZEN AMPLIFIED, sorry for you I thought you knew God but what I can conclude is that you are a hypocrites,I know you won’t accept because you don’t know who you are and you don’t love God.God lovers love others, thats why that candidate is trying to break that bridge between tribes, if you don’t have God’s love nomatter how concerned citizens you are, you are nothing.

  18. Jms

    I know less people find fought and attack on them.

  19. Ecl

    Keep talking tonga this tonga that but the truth of the matter is that we are all suffering in all four corners of Zambia and I know this talk about us tongas will come to pass. If Zambia will never have a tonga presdant let it be as for me am losing nathing. May God bless you who busy talking about tongas continue

    We all know where tribalism comes from and some tribes have smeared other innocent tribes to be so, while its them doing it , innocent lives suffer due to talkative creatures focing others wrong things, if it was possible change could enter every person according to the patriotic and Christianity we have been left to enjoy. KK,Chiluba,Mwanawasa and Data, these people made names because we still enjoy what they left, ushitasha mwana wandoshi, as they say. CHANGE FOR BETTER.

    The problem he believes in it to an extent that he neither condemns it nor advice the Tonga’s to hide their resentment of other tribes.

  23. JMS

    Banda, Banda why teaching bad unpalatable words,it’s only a child of God who knows good dids but unfortunately I understand what you’re up to, and I can’t force you to change. Man obtained mind to think on himself unless he seeks him and anyone willing to Will be helped. Bitterness occurs to uncultured men who suffered without realizing that suffering bring change in people not to return the bad situations they have gone through.

Man obtained mind to think on himself, unless he maybe things become difficult for him then it’s allowed to seek help from others and anyone is willing to help.
