It is time to honour Chiluba – Chanda

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |


Chirundu MMD district secretary Gift Chanda has appealed to Zambians across the country to honour the late and first democratic president FTJ Chiluba by voting for MMD in 2016.

Speaking to Pastors in Chirundu on Tuesday, Chanda said “Zambians has sadly lost three Presidents and when president Levy Mwanawasa died in 2008, we honoured him by voting for Rupiah Banda, when president Sata died 2015 we honoured him by voting for Edgar Lungu through a sympathy vote and now it’s time to honour Chiluba by voting for Dr. Nevers Mumba who is former Republican Vice President.”

Chanda said Dr. Chiluba transformed the country’s economy by introducing deliberate policies such as free market economy, duty free on public transport, land empowerment and house empowerment policy which saw a lot of Zambians owning houses.

“My appeal goes to all those who benefited from FTJ policies to remember and honour him by voting for MMD in 2016 presidential and general elections,” he said.

  2. There are many sick people mentally in Zambia really. I just hope it is not syphilis which is eating Tayali’s brain.

  3. @ Chanda-Indeed let’s honour FTJ.If u critically look at the 3 succeeding presidents:Mwanawasa,Rupiah and Lungu,they all got it easy to become presidents.For MMD the fiercy battles were fought by FTJ with UNIP/KK and for Sata he fought battles with MMD.For MMD now,Dr Mumba is more MMD President compared to Levy and Rupiah.Levy and Rupiah were presidents when MMD was ruling with less problems and No Competice Conventions.Nevers takes over MMD in opposition(caused by Rupiah) at a very difficult time,where the majority MMD senior members have failed to stand oppostion politics.Let’s indeed vote Nevers and MMD.For me FTJ and Nevers are fighters as oppossed to Levy and Rupiah who got the presidency on dilver plater.Rupiah is even worse,ungrateful,selfish,tribalist,shameless and disgusting.

    • That is great!! You forgot to mention one of Chiluba’s greatest achievements; the reckless privatization that has landed Zambia into its current problems. You don’t even own your own natural resources any more.

      • @ Political Analyst.Very right.Infact in 2001,FTJ literally compaigned for Levy,though he was a weak candidate,he won.And in 2008 MMD capaigned for Rupiah,though,he too was a weak candidate he won.Rupiah was supposed to do only 3 yrs,but due to his selfishness and greedness, he went for the 2011 elections,which he lost.Though he put it in a lot of corruption money,he still lost to Sata.Again Rupiah wanted hijack Nevers’s MMD Presidency,buy corrupting a lot of NEC Members through Muhabi and Nyangu,he still failed.Indeed,Nevers is a steadfast fighter.I appeal to all genuine MMD Memembers and well-meaning and sober Zambians to vote for Dr Mumba and MMD.

        • @MMD observer, you mean FTJ rigged for Mwanawasa?

      • Yes. He should also be honoured for stealing plenty from Zambian people. As if that was not enough, he even started stealing human beings including Regina Mwanza and making her husband and children become Social refugees.

        • Nailed the real point Bro. Can’t follow the logic in this Chanda’s thinking.

          The man lived his life faking illnesses just to dodge the stealing cases in courts!

        • @ JASON NYIRENDA-FTJ was not a coward like some pipo including some MMD so-called Leaders.FTJ stood against the most feared KK at the time and challenged him.Today you can talk about democracy and freedom of speech.When Sata won,you saw MMD cowards,could not even speak,untill after his death.Coward Rupiah even pretended to retire from politics.Mutati was MMD chief whip in Parliament,but he could not speak.The list of MMD cowards is indeed let’s honour FTJ for his bravery by voting for another fearless leader Nevers and the MMD.Rupiah only takes advantage of thr dead.after levy’s and sata’s deaths-sic and shameless old man.all the rest are just cowards.Nevers indeed is better.

          • I totally disagree with you. FTJ was not as brave as you claim. The real heroes were the founding members of MMD and FTJ was no where near at the first formation meeting of MMD because he was afraid of being arrested. I think credit should go to the late Arthur Wina and all those who attended the first meeting at Garden Motel. FTJ was just a cunning manipulator

          • @Sir Nyambe-Indeed,let’s honour FTJ by voting for another brave man Dr Mumba.Dr Mumba stood up for MMD when the majority of these voices we’re now hearing were no where to be heard.When Sata threatened to de-register MMD,Rupiah,Mutati,Musokotwane,Mpande etc were nowhere to be heard.Indeed as his name implies,Nevers has really “SEKWILA” for athers to now talk.People like Watson Mtonga can now talk even about the Convention.Wonders may never end.

  4. Was he speaking from Chainama by any chance? Only someone resident there would say such a ridiculous thing.
