Edgar Lungu and HH a danger to Zambia’s Peace – Nawakwi

Filed under: Breaking News |

OPPOSITION Forum for Democracy and Development President Edith Nawakwi says both Edgar Lungu and Hakainde Hichilema are a danger to Zambia’s peace and security if elected to be President.

Ms. Nawakwi explains that anyone who wanted power “At All Costs” should not be given an opportunity to rule the nation as their intraparty violence would be extended to the entire nation.

And Ms. Nawakwi has described as unacceptable the violence which has continued characterising PF and UPND campaigns.

Speaking when she addressed a rally in Malole constituency in Mwingu District and Senga Hills in Mbala district, the opposition FDD leader said both PF and UPND would bring anarchy in the country if voted into office and she had no apology for describing PF and UPND violent campaigns as stupid and rubbish.

“PF and UPND are abusing the county’s peace by engaging into violent activities. If you vote for Edgar Lungu, you will allow a violent party to form Government. They (PF and UPND) have no heart for the poor as can be seen by their violent behaviour.

“Allowing PF to continue would be risking our children and those who will be born in PF era to violence as violence breeds violence ‘Umwana wampombo em empombo ene.”

Ms. Nawakwi is currently the most experienced presidential candidate among all the candidates vying for the country’s top job on January 20 as can been seen in her serving in four Ministerial positions that includes Finance and Energy.

The soft spoken but goal oriented leader further reminded Mbala resident that she was the one who connected Senga Hills and other areas in the country to the national electricity grid the time she served as Minister of Energy.

Meanwhile, FDD Campaign Manager who is former Malole Independent MP Emmanuel Munaile, said there was no candidate in the presidential race who could be compared to Ms Nawakwi.

Mr. Munaile said Ms. Nawakwi saved in UNIP and MMD Governments in different portfolios hence her experience was massive.

“Ms Nawakwi is one strong woman that country has ever had. She is a better candidate than all men contesting in the 20th January 2015,” he said.

Mr Munaile said if Malole and Senga Hills constituencies do not vote for Ms. Nawakwi they would be drowning their future.

He said PF had failed Malole and Senga Hills residents and advised them not to vote for a failed party.

Ms Nawakwi is in Northern Province on a campaign trail and she is this week expected in Muchinga province to deliver her campaign message.

  2. Ms Nawakwi ,you were doing welll until now.Base you campaigns on issues that are affecting the people of Zambia.Attacking your fellow parties won’t bring you votes.Listen and follow HH.In his campaign messages he has been resolute to stick to issues and avoid character assasinations.
    The party has only responded when they have been attacked.
    When pf was busy looking for a candidate,UPND was campaigning and there was total pace and tranquillity until this panga family joined the campaigns.

    So madam if you have run out of messages ,please keep quiet like Gen.Miyanda.

    • Well said Judgement! At this stage of your career Madam Nawakwi, you should be Zambia’s equivalent of the current Nigerian Finance Minister, the Harvard educated, former World Bank high roller, Ngozi
      Okonjo-Iweala. Ngozi was educated at the International School Ibadan and Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude with an A.B. in 1977, and earned her Ph.D. in regional economic development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1981. We need people of substance who are employable in similar capacities outside of Zambia! So long as we dearly hold on to the Namugalas, Mutatis, Maureen Mwanawasas, Masebos,I cnt recall some of the PF blunders, we will remain entrenched in abject poverty! Madam Nawakwi, a lady of your experience should put forward educated arguments other than saying ABC shud retire because he is too old. Fashion your arguments with intellect and educated reasoning!

      • Amen!
        Nawakwi had started her campaign very well but is now exhibiting symptoms of Poor Finishing!
        Kuyamba vinthu timayamba bwino Koma poor finishing ndiye problem!

        She now sounds like Mrs Muliokela from the East with no educated arguments.

    • Well said, if Edith has run out of ideas, she better stop and rally behind the opposition. Attacking one of your own is a sign of weakness. Today’s politics are different from 1991. Ukose…. some are even embracing criminals they stripped off their immunity…. Tough times ahead!

  5. If voted into power, Edith Nawakwi would snatch all men she likes for herself starting with Tonga bulls.

  6. I love Nawakwi but i wonder how she lost the power of reasoning this time. UPND is a very peaceful party that should not be compared to the violent and indisciplined PFools. The PFools is the worst party in Zambian history. HH is the one who deserves great respect, according to his CV, as compared to all the other candidates. HH does not alcohol and by far differs from Lungu.

  7. I had respect fot Nawaki and wanted to vote for her but her utterances have left me without any word. Instead I will not vote for anyone. I will just be an observer
