UPND plot uncovered


THE opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) plans to cause confusion on the Copperbelt in the wake of challenges in the mines, Parliament was told yesterday.
Vice-President Inonge Wina said Government has information that the UPND wants to turn politics into confrontation.
“The UPND wants to take advantage of challenges on the Copperbelt and cause confusion,” Mrs Wina said.
She was commenting following sentiments by Choma Central member of Parliament (MP) Cornelius Mweetwa (UPND during the Vice-President’s question time.


Mr Mweetwa said police on the Copperbelt had rejected the UPND’s notification to hold political rallies earlier this month.
“We were told that we could only hold our meetings next month [December].
“Have you banned political activities in the country?” Mr Mweetwa asked.
Mrs Wina said every Zambian has the right of association, but in the case of the Copperbelt, there were security concerns.
“It appears campaigns have started in the House [Parliament]. The police assessed the situation on the Copperbelt and made a decision on security grounds. They want to safeguard life and property,” Mrs Wina said.
She said safety and security take precedence over political expediency.
Meanwhile, Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini says President Lungu has the liberty to travel to any part of the country because he is the head of State.
Dr Matibini said President Lungu is allowed by law to travel freely anywhere in Zambia as he undertakes his work of governing the nation.
He was responding to a point of order raised by Mandevu MP Jean Kapata, who asked if the UPND was in order to question President Lungu’s travels around the country.
“Mr Speaker, is the UPND in order to question President Lungu’s visitation of people around the country?” Ms Kapata asked.




  1. Why cant th upnd offer solution to our current economic challeges we are facing as Zambia? instead of waiting 4 their turn of governance which is unlikely 2 come due 2 their barbalic behavior in some parts of our country!

  2. Upnd members don’t cheat yourselves. You think people in copper belt are so dow that they can’t see what is happening. Zambia does not mitigate prices for copper and the prices have gone down. I can advise you to do your ground work properly than depending on the downfall of the economy so that you can win votes it does not work like that and it shows you don’t mean good to mother zambia you just want to rule. I can tell you if pf loses it can’t hurt but for you it will be bad and that could be the end of upnd without even forming government. It’s too early to claim that PF is dead. You must know that they are in control at moment so don’t be fooled.

  3. Government knows about the challenges on the copperbelt. EL went there and he gave himself an 8 out of 10 with his performance. What’s really happening on the ground cause we keep on hearing about Job losses. So all what EL and entourage told us was a lie?

  4. Mama Wina knw dat if the miners looses their jobs dats a end of pf pa CB n mind u most of the treasuary funds u get frm the miners re the ones who contributes alot in terms of TAX….Watch out 4 copperbelt ba pf its up 2 u.

  5. One day all the employees reached the office and saw a big advice written on the door.

    “Yesterday the person who has been stopping your growth in this company passed away. You are invited to join the funeral.”

    In the beginning, they got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they got curious to know who was the man who stopped their growth.

    Everyone thought: ‘Well at least the man who stopped my progress died!’

    One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they were speechless. They stood shocked in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could see him/herself.

    There was a sign next to the mirror that read:
    “There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth…It is you. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, success and realization.”

    Your life does not change when your boss, friend or company changes…..your life changes when you change…you go beyond your limiting beliefs and you realize you are the only one responsible for your life.
    It’s the way you face life that makes the difference!

    If an egg is broken from outside force….life ends but if it is broken from inside force life begins. Great things always begin from our inside.👍
