UPND national chairman Mutale Nalumango says no one should be comforted that they are in good books with the PF government because “evil has a tendency of turning against itself.”

Nalumango told President Lungu to “repent now and to turn away from his “wicked ways.”
She indicates that no one can be contented under an “evil system” of a government like Zambia’s.

And Nalumango has asked President Edgar Lungu to repent now, turning away from his “wicked ways” alleging that he is number one offender to Zambians.
She made the remarks at the UPND secretariat in Lusaka on Friday, addressed by party leader Hakainde Hichilema.

“You cannot afford to allow a government that is against its own people because you too are part of that society. You can’t forever know or believe you are in good books with an evil system. Evil has a tendency of turning against itself!” Nalumango cautioned.

“Today many Zambians, Mr president (Hichilema), can’t even access a simple marketing space in a designated area. This government has no shame whatsoever and when we say government, we cannot rule out Edgar Lungu because by our system he is the executive; the rest are his appointees.”

She pointed out that a Republican President who could exhibited ignorance of happenings in the country was not worthy to be one.

“A President must stay clear in his mind for him to be briefed by every institution and individuals that need to give him the information of what is happening on the ground for him to make the right decisions. A President should be shameful to even speak and say ‘I’m not aware….’” she said.

“The President [Edgar Lungu) is aware of what is happening in the country. He is aware of who killed [Obed] Kasongo (NDC member). He is aware of the things happening at Levy Junction, unless he says he is not in charge.”
Nalumango indicated that she had a right to question President Lungu’s misrule because “he is sitting in my office.”
She stressed that the presidency could not be personal.

“You sit in there on behalf of every Zambian and we have the right to speak to you. You can’t mislead this nation and you can’t lead it into destruction; you can’t lead it into anarchy. Remember, there is always a day of reckoning. It doesn’t matter which position you hold, it doesn’t matter where you’re sitting; there is a day of reckoning either here on earth or before God almighty,” Nalumango charged.

“Don’t intimidate Zambians. It is part of democracy for me to have my freedom to speak [and] if what I’m saying is wrong, you would simply clarify. [But] don’t come and say ‘we’ll kill you.’ Kill who?”
She further underscored that the PF regime, repressive as it could be, “can’t kill the spirit of Zambia.”

“You will never because Zambia is made up of free individuals whose freedoms are not guaranteed by you but by God Himself, enshrined in the Constitution. That’s why we say some of these rights are inalienable; you cannot remove them from the people,” Nalumango noted.

“It is a sad time for Zambia; so much [is] going on; people are hungry. People can’t even access proper medication and yet other people are thinking of their own stomachs!”
She wondered how one could call themselves a leader “if all you’re concerned about is yourself and your own children.”
Nalumango said Zambia was mourning now.
“It’s a sad time! All I’ll say is remain united as members of the United Party for National Development. Zambians, be strong and stand up for your rights – let nobody intimidate you,” she stressed.

Nalumango told President Lungu to “repent now and to turn away from his “wicked ways.”
“Maybe God will have mercy on you. Lungu, you have a duty to every Zambian [who] voted for you or not; you’re sitting in the Republican office and you have the duty to keep the peace of this land. Any anarchy, any confusion, any murder by cadres, the buck stops with you, Mr Lungu, in the Office of the President,” Nalumango underscored.

“As long as you are sitting in that office [and] we speak against all the evils, you’re the number one offender to the Zambian people. It’s not a joke; my heart breaks when I see the way things are being run.”

Meanwhile, Nalumango observed that State capture could not be worse than when the police fail to do its work for fear of the ‘influence’ of political party cadres.
“The police are now captured! Where do we run to? Police, we’re with you [and] we understand that most of you know what you should do,” said Nalumango.
“[But] unfortunately, you have no support from your own commander. It’s painful, it’s sad. If you can’t feel sad and you’re in Zambia, check yourself and ask yourself whether you’re truly human.”
