What the f**k is this? How can I leave UPND when I could succeed HH? – Canisius

Dr. Banda

United Party for National Development (UPND) Vice President for Politics, Canisius Banda, yesterday lost it and went on a tirade laced with the ‘f-word’ following suggestions by the Zambian Watchdog, an anti government news website, that he is the next ‘big fish’ from the opposition party to defect to the ruling Patriotic Front (PF).

“What the fuck is this? Yes, I said that! Kwateniko umuchinshi mwe... (You must have respect) …when did I become a wolf? Really? A wolf! Me?”  Dr Banda wrote in a Facebook posting in his usual poetic manner but in a sarcastic tone.

Dr Banda, who was overlooked for the running mate position despite being the older member in both the party and position than his fellow Vice President for administration Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, also openly indicated his ambition to succussed UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema in future.

“How do I think of going away from the UPND now when I could even […I am in very good stead to…] succeed President Hichilema as the UPND president in the future?” he said.

Dr Banda also denied allegations by the Zambian Watchdog that he is currently staying at Cresta Golf View Hotel sponsored by PF.

” ..let anyone go to Cresta Golfview. They will not find me accommodated there.

” …how could the Zambian Watchdog have gotten itself so twisted in its own knickers? This story is so wrong and false that it reeks of malice.

“It’s almost as if I am now being pushed away. Is this another internal dirty job? By the way, the PF have been courting me NOT for 4 months as the dog says but for over 4 years!

“But I willingly chose to serve Zambia and fellow man through the UPND. How do you treat a man so diligent, so loyal and so helpful like this? What nonsense is this?”

Earlier, the Zambian Watchdog alleged that Dr. Banda is defecting to PF.

” Dr. Canisius Banda is next to exist the party. This move has been orchestrated to divide the UPND during this trying time. Dr. Banda has been courted for the past 4 months but it seems now is the time for him to finally join the band wagon. Dr. Canisius Banda is currently being accommodated at Cresta Golf view as he awaits for his defection payment,” they wrote.

  2. The rabbied dog (Zambian watchdog)now has nothing to write about. As a result, they have now turned on themselves. Soon the dogs will start eating themselves as can be seen from this allegation which has been rubbished by the learned Doc.

  4. I have no doubt that Dr Banda will eventually be kicked out from UPND-the internally built tribal hegemony,the basis on which authority of this party derives from, will see to that.

    He will soon learn how these tribal vermin are obsessed with the self.

    • UPND is more diverse in terms of leadership as compared to PF. Just look at PF Central Committee and UPND NMC and you will see the difference in diversity. All the rubbish about tribal hegemony in UPND is a creation of the most lethal propaganda machine Zambia has ever seen – PF. The hard core unschooled tribalists in the name of Mumbi Phiri, Frank Bwalya, Sunday Chanda, Emmanuel Mwamba, Anthony Mukwita, Frank Tayali,Chishimba Kambwili, Stephen Kampyongo and Davies Chama steer the boat of tribalism hard. They play the symphony in the Orchestra and the dancers are the so called second class citizens in the name of Jean Kapata,Brian Haapunda, Cosmos Moono, Paul Moonga, Kapita, Christine Ngimbu and Bowman Lusambo. Surely if they did not enjoy the Tribal symphony, how come they have failed to leave? I would never stay in a place where my and allied tribes are treated like trash. The people of North Western, Western, Southern, Some parts of Lusaka, Central and Copperbelt rural have become second class citizens due to the tribal venom of the above few. They dare not speak their languages in public because they will be treated like stinking sh**t. I think it is high time people started telling the truth about this cancer. It will eat our spinal cord while we pretend it does not exist. Peace is never taken for granted. For you young ones, know that Zambia has been relatively peaceful but not always peaceful. Ask your Parents about the Mushala insurgency. Also ask them about the curfew and blackouts that used to be enforced in Zambia. Ask them about the Military Road blocks of the 70s and 80s. If you think it is impossible for Zambia to lose its peace, just remember or read about the incidences I have mentioned here. Lets stop this tribal rhetoric. It will consume all of us.

      • I agree with you. I was brought up in Lusaka and had never been influenced by my parents to segregate on tribal grounds. But since PF, I have come to HATE Bembas’s and Easterners, Even kicked out one Bemba family from my farm. It`s that serious!

  6. Dr. Banda, becareful with what you hear.
    The PF will be very happy to see you follow Lifwekelo. But you are not that desperate, are you? I guess not. You are a medical Doctor. Think of many Zambians who wwork as cleaners, watchmen etc. They still live and walk with dignity.

    Of course you can succeed HH should he decide to retire and supports your candidature as president of UPND. The tribal song is from PF.

    Is it HH being President of UPND that is making the party a Tonga Party?

    So, will UPND be called after the tribe of its next President?

    I recall the manner in which President Lungu ascended to the presidency of PF following the death of Michaiel Sata. It was not democractic at all.

    But PF is not being accused of being tribal or undemocratic!!!

    UPND has the following structure:

    President – HH – Tonga, Southern province
    Chairman – Mrs Mutale Nalumango – Bemba – Northern Province
    Vice President (RM) Mr Godffrey Bwalya Mwamba – Bemba – Northern Province
    Vice President – Political – Dr Caniscious Banda – Tumbuka/Ngoni/Chewa (same to us from outside Eastern province) Easterner
    Secretary General – Mr Katuka – N/Western provinve.

    So the UPND is tribal just because the President is Tonga?
    So are you saying UPND will only cease to be tribal when a non-Tonga becomes its President? Won’nt the Tongas rethink their national identity? I think one cannot help to think this way.

    If this is the thinking among the voters in Lusaka, Central, Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces, who continue to reject UPND despite its robust national development strategy, then the Head of State has a lot of homework to do to make the Tongas identify themselves as part of the “One Zambia, One Nation” reintroduced in 2011.

    Yes, re-introduced by PF. Why did the PF reintroduce “One Zambia, One Nation” before reading the news when we were almost 50 years post independence? KK and Harry Mwanga Nkumbula had signed the Choma Declaration way back in the early 1970’s. Tribal clashes had ceased. Intermarriages had increased, thanks to KK’s policy of “swapping” public service workers. Easterners were posted to work in Western [province, Northerners were posted to Southern province, Southerners were posted to Northern, Luapula and North Western, Westerners were posted to Eastern/Luapula provinces. It was working. The myths were being dismantled. They guys and girls just started falling for each other – marriages and new names emerged – Banda Lubinda, Bwalya Hamubotu, Kapuma Longwe etc. It was very good, until PF came on the scene.

    We had almost forgotten the “One Zambia One Nation” slogan over the years prior to 2011 because we were so united and tribe had ceased to be a yardstick for anything other than history exhibited through cultural demonstrations seen at traditional ceremonies.

    We had started enjoying each other’s cultural ceremonies. Attendance of cultural ceremonies by people from different parts of Zambia had increased.
    We proudly told people in drinking places what tribe we belonged to without fear. But not since 2011. Perhaps, 2016 even more unsafe now.

    PF has a lot of work to undo the damage to what UNIP and KK had woven together. MMD had done a wonderful job in this regard. Chiluba and Mwanawasa and even RB, had continued to build a true Zambian identity.

    Those are my observations.

    We can still restore the unity if the President is interested.

    Leadership is a serious matter

  7. EDGAR LUNGU IS THE DEVIL INCARNATE.THE PF PARTY WAS FOUNDED ON CHARMS, WITCHCRAFT AND WITH NO GOOD INTENTIONS, BUT TO INFLICT PAIN ON ALL ZAMBIANS.I FEEL SORRY FOR SOME UNSUSPECTING SYMPATHIZERS THAT HAVE BLINDLY SHOWED THEIR LOYALTY TO THE PARTY OWNED BY THE DEVIL. AND WE ALL KNOW THAT THE DEVIL HAS NO MERCY. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, THE FATHER OF PF, THE DEVIL,REMAINS DEFEATED AND SOON AND VERY SOON PF IS GOING TO DISINTEGRATE AND COME CRUSHING DOWN BEFORE THE END OF THIS YEAR, 2016.

  8. Well, it’s okay for people to speculate on you Dr. Banda and it is okay for you to use the F.UCK word. Especially after what we have just gone through: I mean, the victory that turned into HORROR…
    As a member of the UPND, I for one feel diverstated about the happenings from 13 May 2016 to date.I ve drafted open letters to so many stakeholders, each time feeling that ive not done enough.
    – The president-elect
    – The Constitutional court
    – The Electoral commission
    – The Zambia Army

    and the three major Zambian tabloids:
    – ZNBC
    – Times of Zed
    – Daily Mail
    What has really gone wrong with us. Everything that I was taught I must now re think and ask new questionas:
    Q1. Do Preachers and Pastors believe in the existence of a God?
    Q2. Have judges been so biased, even before this?Are these people King-Makers and ordinary Zambians are just Window dressing?
    Q3. How far low is Lungu willing to go? Because this doesn’t look like his altimate maneuvre…
    WE ARE F-UCKED

  9. Dr C. Banda.. stay with UPND my big man. We really need you around. Your rubbishing of the story is humbling because the rumour was so believable. But please understand the Watch Dog’s dilemma also… they are frustrated just as most of us are, currently. But we are on the same side of the divide… we both believe that a wrong candidate is being prepared for the inauguration.. and that the election results announced were different from the voters cast. Let us all pray to the God of Abraham , and of Jacob,and of Moses that the truth and only the truth should triumph.

    When all is done and dusted, Let he who the cap fits, wear it!

  12. ZWD is a bad media blog that is aimed at destroying people’s characters.
    ZWD have been promoting hate, division and violence. It is this same media that helped HH lose elections. They are not helping UPND, they are there to destroy the party. They target individuals, businesses and companies. HH and team were a target from the very beginning of their campagins. ZWD were creating bad press around HH and hounding him to give them money. These people were forcing HH to promise them that he would win the election. Who does that? they asking HH to tell them if he was going to WIN this just finished election, and if he did not feel like he was going to WIN, then he should stand down as LEADER of the party; and when this didn’t happen, they ZWD started telling people that HH stole money and that is why he is so rich and he wouldn’t share the money with anyone. They actually destroyed the campaign from start. ZWD supported the beatings, violence and encouraged peopleto riot, they sponsored the fighting and beating of local people. ZWD promoted the violence during election time and they did this through their media blog. Those on the ground were paid to commit crimes

  13. I tend to love Dr Canisius Banda. Hold on to your party. Prove these many young ones that politics can still be done with with dignity.

    Inspire many, that no matter what you don’t need to walk naked because you have seen a few coins.

    Continue exhibiting good political tendencies where even God will say I love this son. LOVE your fellow comrades (HH and GBM) with a sincere heart.

    I tend to love you as a person. MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU.
