A PF sympathiser, calling himself a Private Investigator, David Silubanje says he has discovered a foreign sponsored scheme under which UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is offering $1 million to each independent MP to support the impeachment motion.

Silubanje who is also former Kabwata constituency Chairperson told the media at a briefing that meetings between Hichilema and the MPs have been arranged for each MP to sign the petition and receive a $250, 000 down payment.

He charged that two PF back-benches have been targeted.

“I have come across a foreign sponsored scheme under which the UPND leader is offering $1 million to each independent MP to support the so called impeachment motion. One on one meeting between HH and MPs have been arranged for each MP to sign up to the petition and receive down payment of $250, 000, another $250, 000 when the motion is tabled, and the final $500, 000 if the motion succeeds. A South African based Foundation has provided the funds for buying off MPs and legal fees for any eventuality in the process,” Silubanje charged.

But Silubanje said he would not name the foreign company.

“Two PF back-benches are being targeted as well. I shall make full disclosure of the bribery scheme once we re-examine the situation. The desperation by the UPND and HH in particular to seek back door machinations to get state power is totally unacceptable and must be resisted by well-meaning citizens of this country,” he said.

And Silubanje warned People’s party leader Mike Mulongoti that his malicious campaign against President Edgar Lungu’s citizenship would land him in problems.

“I also regret to inform the nation that Mike Mulongoti, a former minister sworn to defend the truth and integrity of the nation can deliberately begin to malign the Head of State to justify a monthly allowance being paid by HH to him. Mike Mulongoti should know that his malicious campaign against the president over citizenship will land him into trouble,” Silubanje said.

Meanwhile PF deputy media director Antonio Mwanza challenged both Hichilema and Mulongoti to come out clean and refute the allegations.

“So we are so sad as leaders of the patriotic front that we have an opposition that has no direction. So we are challenging them to come out clean and refuse that these things are not real. Hakainde Hichilema is not interested in the dialogue, not even a bit. What he is interested in is to raise his international profile to the outside community so that he can continue collecting these sums of money which he has been collecting and continue to fund confusion in the country. This is the only president who goes out of the country and starts to talk ill of his own country which he claims he wants to rule,” said Mwanza.

  1. What a bunch of idiots. Impeachment is normal if reasons for it are valid and right procedure is followed. Why are you so scared to a point of manufacturing such lies? Name the company! You challenge HH and Mulongoti to refute the allegation ? Well I challenge you to name and shame the south African based company involved. Of course you can’t do that because this is a foolishly manufactured story. Antonio is quickly becoming irrelevant.

  2. The best PF can do is to name the company which they claim to have funded such huge sums of money, and that is how they will be taught a very hard lesson never to hallucinate again. Such a legal battle will make PF broke for the rest of their lives. South Africans do not practice such kind of politics of buying people.

  3. If this is true, such people who have the muscle to mobilize cash from elsewhere could make Zambia better than these who are currently squeezing citizens with taxes to a point where the national anthem is very fast playing the tune of TAX-TAX-TAX !

  4. This man is he saying these MP’s received all this cash? Did they pay tax on this income? If they did not, why has the ACC not arrested then like they did with aka mbwili for receiving monies believed to be from crime or what ever????

  5. HOW DO YOU EXPECT PEOPLE WITH SUCH ROTTEN BRAIN TO DEVELOP A COUNTRY?
    IT IS SHOCKING THAT THE SO CALLED PRESIDENT COULD ALLOW SUCH BLANTANT STUPID LIES TO BE UTTERED AND EXPECTS PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THEM!
