Rights Activist Laura Miti says it is good that the opposition UPND has lost the Chilanga seat in Tuesday’s by-election.

And Miti says if the UPND fails to organise itself to kick out the PF, Zambians will find an alternative.

Commenting on the results of Chilanga Constituency by-election where the PF has won the seat, Miti says:

So UPND, you need to celebrate this loss in Chilanga because it is probably the best thing that could have happened to you.

Just imagine had you won. You would have been rewarded for one of the most mind-boggling decisions in recent politics – adopting a candidate you needed to first defend and then sell.

Disrespect to your own loyal voters. Anyhow let’s hope you are having a postmortem. In that debrief, please say very little about violence rigging and all that.

Don’t even pay attention to PF celebrations and goading. They know you gifted them the seat. Instead of whining about PF, have an honest introspection. Close the doors, shut your ears to all outside noise and talk – fight if you must. (Not physically I hope). When you come out, of there, make sure you have concrete plans for the total revamping of your strategy and structures that ends with that convention I spoke about.

If you don’t take advantage of this moment for the sake of your millions of supporters nizanu izo (it’s your fault). All I know is that we Zambians will find a way out of this unhappy space between a rock and a hard place that you and PF represent. We just might have to.

  1. PF never won this seat. They beat people, mobbed polling stations, intimidated people, bribed, barred voters, the horde of police officers scared people to go and vote…

  5. The biggest problem the UPND have is they have allowed themselves to believe that what Hakainde thinks is always the best and no one should think in a divergent way. Very weird scenario. The messages were clear, the happening at Kupark lodge was the beginning of failure and yet the bootlicking likes of Garry, Jack, Geoffrey and Nalumango failed to listen to the voice of reason. Charmaine was an easy opponent because of her recent past incidences. Hakainde is a demerit for this political party because of his arrogance,egocentric know it all attitude.You can not have a political leader with such traits and hope to strike positives. The UPND will go down in the records of history as a political party that had alot of promise but ended up on a self destructive path by way of ‘milking a dead damme’. What a pity……..

  6. I 100% agree with Laura. UPND have but themselves to blame; they were warned and advised by many people and they decided not to heed the voice of reason and now they crying without shading tears. God bless Zambia!

  7. Madam you have said it all. Am out of the country but was disappointed with upnd fielding that lady when her issues s were still fresh in the minds of the people. Even the expelling of those two Councillors was untimely issue
