Mazambuka UPND Member of Parliament Gary Nkombo has lashed out the PF for insisting that Hakainde Hichilema was behind the failed privatisation of the mines.

 

Nkombo in a statement to Zambian Eye said Hichilema never sold any mine. He questioned what PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri smokes for her not to see the good that came out of the privatisation programme.

 

Nkombo said:

 

Once again we have PF mouthpieces desperately seeking to distract people from their sinking ship by rehashing old and tired rumours about HH’s involvement in the privatisation process.

 

As UPND is given few opportunities to respond directly while such allegations are thrown about, as in recent interviews by chatterbox PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri on ZNBC and chatterbox Sunday Chanda on Muvi TV, let me restate the facts here. It was GRZ and the ZCCM Privatisation Task Team headed by Mr. Francis Kaunda that was responsible for the sale of the mines. Mr. Kaunda was selected by GRZ for his role of leading the Task Team specifically due to his industry relevant experience. HH did not work for any company that was responsible for the sale of the mines, nor did he authorise the sale. The entire process was conducted in accordance with the Privatisation Act Cap. 386 and sale was at the discretion of the GRZ.

 

While it is sadly understandable that people are so ready to believe that all politicians are selfish given the past experiences, as a Christian nation we must know that honesty and selflessness are possible and that we should not judge or condemn our brothers and sisters in the absence of facts. For those who know HH personally he is a man who contributes and gives a great deal but does not boast about it. He gets on with the job at hand because he learnt that in business your track record should speak for itself.

 

Twenty years on, Government must stop blaming private citizens for the decisions of it’s predecessors while it makes mistakes right, left and centre that cost the people each day, notably the several thousand miners laid off in the course of the last year. Twenty years on we must transition to a place where Zambia is proud of those citizens that have been able to succeed in business, create jobs through their investment in local industries and undertake various community works to support others. The focus must be on how we can empower more Zambians to reach such heights, not on bringing down the too few that have made it to date.

 

Still if the PF wants to talk about wealth and corruption how about we ask government about the alleged payments made by oil companies to secure contracts, or where the missing money for KKIA has gone? How about the money that was embezzled from the CDF funds, or the details of rumoured contracts for military supplies? How about they first reflect that it is their candidate who has a history of embezzling clients’ money.

 

And even if Mumbi Phiri is insisting that privatization was a failure, what gave birth to Shoprite, PikNPay, Hungry Lion, Game Store and many Zambian Companies like Californian Beverages etc etc. So what is Mumbi smoking not to see these things.

    • PF survive on lies, and lies. Even deep their hearts they know HH is is innocent over this matter but because telling lies is one way of their survival strategy they will keep on and on, hoping to capital for more votes using lies.

  2. The biggest problem is that HH is not given an opportunity to defend himself.

  4. The man can”t even defend himself because he was 100% in fourfrount to sell Zambian companies and put all the money in his pocket with his tonga companie called Grant Thonton at mukuba pesion house. Where you find all the people down there are tongas, Hamuweele, Hamufwaya,Hachibi, go there if you want and tell me what kind of tribe you shall find there. Garry Nkombo by that time you were not born please keep quiet.

  7. What do you expect from Mumbi, Let her go raise Chiluba and ask what he used to say “I eat and dream SAP” any Mumbi cant understand what conditions came with SAPS, her education is too shallow for that. For Mumbi’s sake ‘SAP’ stand for ‘Structural Adjustment Programme’. Madam, it had conditions example given because if I write E.g, she wont still get it right, Devolution of power, Decentralisation, Exchange rate controlled by market forces, privatization, among others. Without Zambia agreeing to do those things, IMF and World Bank could have not financially assisted Zambia. Kaunda refused the conditonalities, and our economy was poorly performing, his friends like Nyerere agreed and were helped. Out of the poor economy as a result of refusing the conditions, Kaunda lost and Chiluba, Dora’s former Party President agreed. SAPs were not bad as people might say, but how they were handled in Zambia. For example, the proceed of privatisation, Chiluba used it to buy leather suits and shoes from france, world trotting was his noble duty. To blame people like yough HH by then, is a typical fallacy that makes upright men judge your reading culture that is if you read and your academic position. When chiluba was alive, no one asked him about privatisation, same thing Kaunda is alive no one ask him about Baroste agreement, when he is no more, other people will be blamed. That is the zambia way, lets change out atitudes and beliefs.

  9. How old was mumba phiri in 1991 and what was educational background then, if at all it has improved since? The AIDS Drugs react differently to different people. Depending on the reason why one is taking them. When was she last evaluated mentally? The privatisation project was basically spearheaded by the foolish bemba men and the mbala mafias. Plus one crocked ila man. Don’t bring your poverty and failure to achieve things at school and in life on one bweengwa man. Government is the custodian of all records. Why not show us evidence where the bweengwa man signed as he was selling government property and also show us where he got authority to do that if that really happened anyway. Viva kachema viva. Mumbai phiri or whatever they call you. No one stops you from keeping cattle. After all you have plenty of grasslands were you come from. Meanwhile continue eating the beef from kachemas.for your own information mulenga sata is a kachema. He has seen what the ‘foolish’ southerners have been doing for generations

  10. The biggest fools in this innuendo are MMD leaders of 1991 to 2000 and their privatization teams that sold the mines who are quite when fellow idiots like Mumbi Phiri and others are scandalizing an innocent man.

    I remember KK exonerating Mazoka publicly on radio phoenix in 2001 when similar unfounded and silly allegation that he had stolen over 1000 cattle that were aboard Zambia Railways goods train in the 1980s when Andy was ZR General manager. That is what leaders of integrity must to emulate KK and all this nonsense from scatter brains in PF will end albeit shamefully.

    I challenge the MMD leadership current and former to give us their statement on this issue.

  11. Why can’t Mumbi and all those accusing HH on the privatalisation of the mines and other parastatal companies do some research so they can get to know what actually happened. They must have been kids in the early 90’s. They just talk anyhow believing people will give them credit for being empty tins. Ministries of Finance and Commerce have all the documentation on privatalisation process. Avoid empty talk.

  12. MUMBI PHIRI IS A MORON, JEALOUSY, DULL AND PROSTITUTE. HH HAS NEVER WORKED IN GOVERNMENT, HOW COULD HE SELL GRZ PROPERTY WHEN HE WAS NOT IN GOVERNMENT. GIVE HH A VOTE AND SEE HOW HE WILL CHANGE ZAMBIA FOR THE BETTER, UNLIKE YOUR BOYFRIEND LUNGU WHO IS JUST STEALING GOVERNMENT MONEY AND TAKES FOR DRINKING BEER, SHAME TO YOU MORON MUMBI AND CHANDA.
