Zambia Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says Mulenga Sata who quit PF to join the opposition UPND has failed his father who fought so hard to build the ruling party – PF.

And Tayali has urged President Edgar Lungu to check himself following mass defections from the PF to the opposition.

Below is Tayali’s statement:

I will look at the reactions and impact of the defection of Mulenga Sata from PF to UPND.

First and foremost let me most sincerely congratulate HH and the UPND for pulling quite a good number of significant people. It does not matter whether they are factors or not, the fact is that they are adding to the UPND family and politics is about numbers.

Concerning Mulenga Sata, there are number of issues one would look at depending on which side you are. If you are against the defection, you would rush in discrediting both UPND and Mulenga himself.

I know a little more about Mulenga’s frustrations and wish he would have not acted emotionally considering that he carries the brand name of “Sata” which is like the silver-lining of Late Sata’s presence in PF. Though Sata is gone but having Mulenga there (PF), somehow gives that feeling of indigenous.

No one in PF can ever give that naive feeling of the Sata’s presence in PF than a man who carries his blood regardless of his abilities. PF lost Sata in death and they have also lost his connection in Mulenga Sata.

I am not saying PF should be like a Monarch but just that spirit of having the son there gives a sentimental value

In my view Mulenga Sata has also failed the legacy of his father by not staying on in PF to preserve that spirit of his father in a party that he so much worked for to build. He has succumbed to what his father conquered.

It does not matter who said or did what in PF he would have stayed because PF was not just a party to late Sata, it was his life. This is why some of us will not just abandon PF though I don’t carry a membership card.

Mulenga Sata said his father must be turning in his grave for having hijackers in PF, on the contrary, Late Sata must be turning in the grave for having a son who cannot defend his legacy.

Mulenga has disgraced his father in death by running to people that prayed for the waste when he was sick. People that jubilated when he died all because of his (Mulenga) weakness and seeking attention. It is really a shame and he should say sorry to his late father for dragging his name into cowardice when he died a hero.

On the other hand President Lungu must do serious introspection on his leadership. Is President Lungu’s leadership measuring up to the founder of PF? You can say, this is a different leadership, yes, but the principles of care for people, courage to stop bad things like corruption, empowering people among others must be the character of PF even after the founder’s death.

Yes, politics is about numbers, but what does he think Sata would say if he came back to life today? Does President Lungu think he is a greater leader than Sata?

Who made Edgar Lungu? Where was Edgar Lungu when Sata was forming the party? Would have Edgar Lungu won the elections if he was the President in 2011?

On whose political architecture is the PF surviving and banking on winning 2016 elections?

What has Edgar Lungu done away from what Sata started to guarantee his re-elections?

I am not despising President Edgar Lungu, I am only letting people to think about how they are running the affairs of the Party that Sata and of course many others suffered for to gain victory in 2011.

I have nothing wrong with MMD members joining PF, it is about politics, infact even Sata welcomed members from other parties including Guy Scott and Sylvia Masebo who was insulting him when she was with Mwanawasa.

The point is, PF must do an introspection other than being arrogate to Mulenga Sata simply because he is not like his father. Mulenga might be old but his father loved him and he endevored to look after him in spite of his weaknesses. Did Edgar Lungu do enough to look after Mulenga?

For Mulenga, I would say, it is high time he stood up as a man and fought his battles, dady is gone, don’t go look for a daddy in HH.
