BRENTHURST FOUNDATION HAS SPONSORED PUPPETS HERE IN ZAMBIA
…I say it without reservation and I can prove it, says Dr Fred M’membe
LUSAKA, Wednesday, June 22, 2022 (Smart Eagles)
Leader of the Socialist Party (SP) Dr. Fred M’membe has charged that Anglo America has a Foundation that is attempting to sponsor governments in Africa because of interest in minerals.
Dr M’membe named the Foundation as the Brenthurst Foundation and charged that it has sponsored a puppet regime in Zambia.
He said the same organisation is now supporting Odinga Raila in the forcoming elections in Kenya.
The opposition leader said this during the Leadership Conference Foundation on Mining in Lusaka today.
“Anglo today has a Foundation that tries to sponsor governments across the continent, for what? For minerals. They are trying to support puppets in South Africa itself, they are trying to sponsor puppets in Zimbabwe, they have sponsored puppets here in Zambia and I say it without reservation. And I can prove it,” he said.
“If anyone wants to challenge me for calling them puppets, I am ready. We can sit on a table and discuss. They are trying to sponsor puppets in Kenya, in the for coming elections, the Brenthurst Foundation has gone to Kenya with some Zambians from State House.”
He charged that Anglo American is getting heavily involved in the governance of our country now.
“We have to resist like our own ancestors, we have to resist. This territory is all that we have. They have shown us that they are brutal, they are not kind to us. They have been mining for 100 years, what do they have for us? What have they left for us? What did we have to show for a 100 years of mining?
“Anglo American is getting heavily involved in the governance of our country now. They governed Zambia some time back and even after stopping governing directly they still governed. Even when we took over ZCCM they still ran ZCCM-IH. Don’t be deceived, it was still their mining. Yes, we got some little concessions, a little favours because we had a stronger voice but Anglo was still judge,” he said.
Dr M’membe expressed worry that with the strategic minerals located in the region, “we are going to see much more trouble.”
He also charged that it’s not just the investors but that armies are also coming to the country.
“They are supporting Odinga Raila, they are supporting Bobby Wine in Uganda. Why should a cooperation be interested in who governs the country? It’s because they have been doing that for centuries, they have been governing for centuries, directly and indirectly,” he said.
“And now with the strategic minerals located here in this region, we are going to see much more trouble. It’s not as peaceful as it seems, it’s not just a matter of talking to the investors here and there, there are armies behind that. They are coming.”
M’membe does not seem to have the whole picture, and so only scratches the surface. He should not rule out his funders.
The man is becoming delusional. He needs help
Mmembe belongs to the long gone era of Chairman Mao Zetung, Che Guevarra, Fidel Castro and Karl Marx. That era with its idiologies of Socialism, Communism, Marxism – the collective farms, stated controlled enterprises and do on does not work in today’s world. Mmembe should take a closer look at how the economies of today’s socalled socialist countries are faring. Just look at Russia Vietnam and even China. These countries abandoned such retrograsive systems long ago. These countries only give lip service to socialism, but their evonomies are purely capitatistic. That’s how you have the orligarcs in Russia and multibillionares in China , some owning huge investment ventures in capitalist US and Europe.
Mmembe himself does not even practise what he talks about. A look at how he ran the Post Newspaper tells it all. It is not surprising that even his own wife Mutinta does’t believe him.
He takes very strong drink and dark smoke. His hate for HH will will cost him a lot of time to preach to people driving the all ten provinces and 72 tribes to shift their minds. The problem Fred Mumembe has is that reading the oldest books of colonial socialism can still work today. Zero Boss fred. Under PF you had no freedom to even walk to a smallest radio station to air your views and you still fell to appreciate HH for the restored peace and freedom of speech you are enjoying? Sell your manifestos to Zambians and stop calling HH a puppet from today. You call HH a puppet of the West and EU and you are putting on that guy made by the West and EU. You are a bad example to the youths and you are an extension of PF.
Is it not Fred Mumembe who started tribal hate speech when he made hateful Bantustan publications against the “Banthu Botatwe” ethnic groups?
Is he also going to get away with tribal hate speech?
When PF was borrowing heavily from the Brenthurst Foundation, was he not part of the same PF group that messed us up with debt?
Who else must we engage with over our debt than the same people we owe so dearly?
You are not fit to lead Zambia Mumembe!
A person who is so full of hatred for others is not fit to lead the now well-informed, Educated and non-tribal multi-ethnic multi-racial Zambia!
You belong to the past and please remain there!
You are so full of Negative Energy, a time waster!
Let me go into my Food Forest and enjoy what good nature has to offer.
Ba Youth, these are not politicians you should entertain. They have nothing to offer!
Fred, your hate for HH is there for everyone to see. You can never compare yourself to HH in anything, be it intelligence, or character. You are still living with ancient ideologies like Socialism. This will never take you anywhere, for sure not here in Zambia. Just sober up and accept that HH is far more intelligent than yourself.
THOSE WHO WANTED TO RULE AS AN IRELAND LIKE THE PF, COULD NOT PRODUCE ENOUGH COPPER FROM BENEATH THE GROUND AND ENDED UP DAMAGING OUR MINES THROUGH BAD MANAGEMENT IN THE SAME MANNER THEY DAMAGED THE ECONOMY. INSTEAD OF FIGHTING THEM, FRED MMEMBE WAS BUSY FIGHTING HIS OWN SELFISH POST NEWSPAPER BATTLE WITH THEM. NOW HE COMES WITH HIS FOOLISH IDEAS OF SCARING INVESTORS SO THAT WE REMAIN IN THE SAME LIMBO WE HAVE BEEN FOR DECADES. ANGLO AMERICANS ARE THE IDEAL INVESTOR THIS COUNTRY WOULD WANT TO COME BACK. THEY PAY MINERS DECENTLY IN DOLLARS TO BE CONVERTED IN KWACHA. MINING WILL GET BACK TO BEING A COMPETITIVE JOB. HOW DOES A MINER GET PAID LUSAMBO’S TALK TIME? WHO WOULD WANT TO BE A MINER? PEOPLE SHOULD NOT LISTEN TO QUACKS LIKE FRED MMEMBE. AFRICA HAS TO GET INTO AN ECONOMIC REVOLUTION NOW. WE ARE TIRED OF BEING A POOR CONTINENT AND ZAMBIA HAS TO TAKE THE LEAD.
U zambians let wake up from slumber. Mmembe has a point but u are just waffling here and there with no points. The Ameracans are after your minerals . Nothing else Zambia will continue to be poor cos shit hole thinking. U remember when former usa president Tramp used the word SHIT HOLE ON AFRICAN countries is cos this kind of thinking. Let us not go back to colonial era. AFRICA WAKE UP AND ZAMBIA WAKE UP
The only consolation Zambia has is that none of the so called opposition leaders is showing signs of normalcy, so HH will continue ruling them even in their graves. Stupid idiots.
