CONFUSION LOOMS IN THE RULING PARTY AGAINST THOSE IN GOVERNMENT
16th January 2022
By: IP
Ruling United Party for National Development-UPND Lusaka district Information and Publicity Secretary Matomola Likwanya has taken a swipe at some newly appointed government leaders whom he has accused of growing bigheaded within a short period of time they have been in government.


Mr. Likwanya has alleged most of the leaders such as cabinet ministers, Permanent Secretaries, district commissioners, members of parliament and other senior officials at state house have become pompous as they have stopped picking phones when they called by the lower structures.


He has alleged that President Hakainde Hichilema is surrounded by named individuals in government who are keen to help him fail to deliver on his promises he gave to the Zambian people because of their behaviour of linking themselves from the people who supported their victory.


He says the new dawn government has announced a lot of progressive ideas which includes the formation of youth cooperatives which are supposed to be guided by the party leaders in collaboration with those in government.
Mr. Likwanya has charged the cooperatives being talked about and other pronouncements risk not to be archived if no proper guidance from the Permanent Secretaries and other leaders.


Meanwhile Mr. Matomola says it is sad that the opposition such as the PF seem to be more organization and united compared to his PF in power, despite what he describes as the evils deeds PF leaders committed while in government.
He says most party officials such as him have run out of answers when asked by the grassroot members on the Developmental projects being undertaken by the UPND government because some individuals serving in the system have decided to switch off their phones sometimes they don’t answer to the queries.
He was speaking in a phone interview with Muvi tv news.(Muvi Tv)

  1. Don’t rubbish every cry from the grassroots. Some of their concerns are appear valid such as the better organisational structures of a named opposition party. Remember the broken down Toyota Spacios during campaigns in Eastern Province?

  2. Especially Garry nkombo he has got a very bad tendance of not picking calls, nevertheless guys those temporarily position only for chiefs are permanent position. Hope hh you have seen this voice of reasoning.

  3. No one owes you a living!
    God gave you a Computer Box (Brain), hands and Legs. Use them! Stop this Dependency Syndrome!
    Remember: Umunthu Mutwe!
    Use your Brains!

  4. Youths learn to be independent this is what brought in caderismn in pf. Everyone wanted a handout and that created monsters. Let the people at the top get the country in order first. They have not forgotten you.

  5. ITS TRUE, COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT.
    IF HE CAN CRY OUT, THEN THE ISSUE IS TOO DIP.
    THESE -VE SIGNS ARE TOO EARLY FOR NEW RULING PARTY.
    AND ALSO DONT CONCENTRATE ON JUST TRANSFERING PIPO,
    ITS EXPENSIVE FOR BOTH GRZ AND FAMILIES.

  6. THIS GUY MUST BE REMOVED FROM HIS PARTY POSITION. LET OTHER DISCIPLINED OFFICIALS TAKE THAT POSITION. WE ALL WORKED FOR THE PARTY THEREFORE IT IS NOT EVERY ONE TO BE APPOINTED. IF FROM OUR EXECUTIVE, ONE OF US IS DC. IT MEANS OUR COLLECTIVE EFFORT WAS RECOGNIZED. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE BITTER IF YOU ARE NOT APPOINTED. WHO TOLD YOU THAT THE APPOINTED OFFICIALS WILL ONLY WORK IF THEY ARE ANSWERING YOUR CALLS WHICH ARE MEANT TO DISTRACT THEM FROM THEIR WORK? ARE YOU SAYING THE APPOINTING AUTHORITY HAVE GONE TO SLEEP CONCERNING WHO IS WORKING AND WHO IS NOT? IF YOU PEOPLE IN LUSAKA START TO BEHAVE LIKE PF WHO WERE SPEAKING TO THE MEDIA FREE FOR ALL, IT CAN NOT BE TOLERATED IN UPND. OUR CONCERN IS, IS THIS ISSUE REALLY SO BIG THAT AS A RULING PARTY WE CAN ALLOW THIS LUNATIC TO SPOIL THE SOUP? WHY COULD HE NOT SEE THE PARTY CHAIRMAN OR THE SECRETARY GENERAL BUT INSTEAD RUSH TO THE MEDIA? IN MY VIEW, SOMEBODY SHOULD SUMMON THIS FELLOW TO STRAIGHTEN HIM UP OTHERWISE ONE ROTTEN NSHABA CAN MAKE THE REST ROTTEN.

  7. This guy is saying a correct thing, people in high position, they don’t look like organized and ready to help HH. Look just for simple issue may be as a youth you want to see the permanent Secretary or Minister, it will take you mouths moving up and down… and they don’t even call you back for up date unless you visit them… and reception is very bad in these offices, they will attend you as if you are not a human being …
    I submit

  8. Let this guy be removed. How can he wash dirty linen in public. You see some of us worked for the party but are not looking for positions because we are self employed and benefitting from the peaceful environment. Maybe he feels lonely not being around those people. You see these people at the top are very busy to be answering calls anyhow, let them work and deliver because you will be the same people condemning them once things go wrong. I can see he has already started praising pf for being organized but they are in the opposition still dizzy from the loss, mourning, malilo people are always together. Tekanya mwana find something to do and you won’t have time to complain. It’s time to work and not to cry. 23 yrs in opposition is hard to shake off from the brain overnight. Be strong they will answer you soon.

  9. Dull chap…let me educate you how governance works. You can worked your ass out in trying to win the Presidency for someone and soon after he is declared winner, state agents come in to protect him because now is not just a President for a political party but for the whole country, he is now the father of the nation. In the meantime, you who thought would be leeches within the system are advised to find something to do and earn a living. Being a branch,ward,constituency or even district party official for ruling party does not mean you also become an important person in society, NO! Just get a life , resign from that position as you are wasting your time and find something lucrative to do. From societies point of view, such positions are as useless as they need to be viewed. Picture yourself you are Kennedy Kamba then, would you say you are an important figure? Some of us did not vote for HH but since he is now the father of the nation, we will support him because we want him to contribute in making Zambia a better place….
