Dr Fred Mmembe, the President of the Socialist Party has reiterated the call for Zambians to wake up and call the UPND government to check for being western “puppets”.


Dr Mmembe said this during the mining indaba organised by the Leadership Conference Foundation in Lusaka today, also restating that the US combatant arm aka AFRICOM will bring nothing but instability to Zambia.


“I challenge them (government) to face me and deny that they are not puppets because I am saying it again that they are puppet government sponsored by the west,” said Dr Mmembe.


Dr Mmembe cautioned that the same way the west, Belgium to be specific killed DRC (Zaire) Prime Minister 60 years and melted his body in sulphuric acid is the same way they will harm the ones that will oppose them in Zambia.


He said the return of Anglo and entry of AFRICOM is “not in the interest of Zambia its in the interest of themselves as seek our mineral resources such as copper and cobalt.”


Dr Mmembe said, “we were duped over privatisation, duped over liberalisation and today we are being duped about the return of the so-called investors through the puppet governments such as in Zambia and Kenya which they are sponsoring.”


Dr Mmembe said it is a shame that Zambia continues to allow foreign mine companies to continue tax evasion while Zambians go hungry without food or money to educate their children.


“They (so called investors) take you to Cape Town, fund your election and you feel indebted to them. They (government) can ignore my statement its ok, we will also have our time and they won’t manage to ignore us.”

  1. Mmembe is pretending to speak for the poor while stinking rich
    He like most socialists are hypocrites.
    He is speaking freely could he do so under PF before America 2 visited him?
    It seem the words of late Mwanawasa are proving to be philosophically true “Zambians have short memories”.
    People are free to speak, something no socialist republic allows.Its treats it’s citizens as morons and the Party as Jesus and the ruling elite as all wise.They remove God and become gods to be worshipped.
    No Mmembe you’re a liar and hypocrite.

  2. COLD WAR IS BACK THROUGH MEEMBE.
    MEEMBE IS A PUPPET OF THE EAST. WHEN RUSSIA INVADED UKRAINE, MEEMBE PLAMED THE WEST. IF VENEZWELA ATTACKS BRAZIL TODAY, MEEMBE WILL BLAME THE WEST. MEEMBE IS AXTUALLY A DANGER.
    MEEMBE SHOULD NOT BRING THE EAST WEST RIVALRY IN ZAMBIA

  3. Meembe is a threat to peace in Zambia. His blatant lies, cherry picking of facts and manipulating the truth is very selfish and dangerous. And all this for his personal gain nothing else.

    All this socialist business is just to dupe people into voting for him. He is not a socialist at heart. It’s just a formula he has adopted for trying to win an election

    This man is very dangerous. Please ignore him.

  4. M’MEMBE YOU ARE JUST A GAS BAG NOW! IT IS JUST BECAUSE YOUR SUPPORT FOR PF IN THE 2021 GENERAL ELECTION DID NOT BEAR ANY FRUIT THAT YOU ARE NOW BUSY TELLING LIES ABOUT HH AND THE UPND. YOU HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED FIDEL CASTRO AND YOU TALK HIGHLY OF CUBA. IS IT BECAUSE YOU WANT ZAMBIA TO BE PUPPET OF CUBA? SOCIALISM IS A DEAD POLITICAL IDEOLOGY. ZAMBIANS WANT TO OWN BUSINESSES, AND NOT THE SITUATION WHERE THE GOVT OWNS EVERYTHING, INCLUDING TUNTEMBAS, AND ALL CITIZENS EMPLOYED BY THE GOVT WITH LOW WAGES, AS THE CASE WAS DURING UNIP. INDEED M’MEMBE IS A DANGER TO ZAMBIA.

  5. Right on Mmembe. A puppet government in this era and age when the world at large has lost confidence in USA and west, because they are just crooks. A white man will never recognize a black man, so why go to him with a begging bowl in this era! Anyway time will tell for Upnd.

  6. You failed to run a simple newspaper, manje can you run a country? Forget. You are the puppet, being told what to say about bally from your foreign sponsors. You are wasting your time.

  7. The man is choking with envy. He is even foaming on the mouth. Chifundo!

    I trust Bally implicitly. You? I don’t and I’m not ever likely. You’ve never meant well for the country.

  8. What is true is that 1) the war in Ukraine was inspired by the west. If Russia said they are going to put their weapons in Mexico, America would invade Mexico. 2) HH is uncomfortably close to the west: voting against Russia instead of abstaining and bringing AFRICOM. But I think he will improve the Zambian situation, and Mmembe and socialism is not for Zambia.
