Chipimo: UPND’s Concerns Were Not Enough For Me To Turn Down SATA’s Invitation

National Restoration Party (NAREP) president Elias Chipimo Junior says his party did not see the need to dialogue with other opposition political parties in the country over the invitation by republican president Michael Sata to the Rio conference in Brazil.

Mr. Chipimo has stated that the concerns raised by other opposition political were not enough to turn down the invitation.

Mr. Chipimo says the National Executive Committee of his party was comfortable with the invitation as conference was in line with the party’s vision to make the country an energy superpower that will address the many pressing challenges being faced.

Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka this morning, Mr. Chipimo says it is so unfortunate that the opposition in the country are dwelling on suspicion and leaving out real issues.

He notes that opposition political parties should not rely on unnecessary criticism and complaints but should instead engage with all stakeholders in a constructive and progressive manner.

Mr. Chipimo states that development in the country can only come from resolute, collective and committed stakeholders by government working with the civil society, the private sector and even the opposition political parties.

And NAREP National chairman Joseph Mushalika says NAREP does not wish to engage in unnecessary attacks with leaders of other opposition political parties but states that unwarranted attacks meant to divert people’s attention from focusing on real issues will not go unchecked.

Mr. Mushalika says UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema should be the last person to state that he is allergic to President Michael Sata because not long ago, he was in an alliance with his party.

    Those condemning Chipimo & Nawaki must be noise gongs containing nothing but shit…Do you really critically analyze politics of the day in Zambia. I think you must be fucked up in the mess of Hakaide’s shallow fucking brain…In Zambia we need constructive and civilized opposition to add value in terms of sustainable development of our country… Therefore, what Chipimo did and Nawakwi is credible because they acknowledge that they too are partners in national development just like any other citizens…Ba makaka Zambia will not be developed only by the political party in gvnt, no…

    NAREP is as useles as its leader..who cannot see that the exercise was a waste of tax payers money. We have always told you that chipimo is a uselles politician….UNZA is closed because government is failing to increase salaries for lectures and you fools like chipimo who goes out on tax payers money. The money chipimo plundered from tax payers could have been used in developing the nation in one way or another.Look at the yourth who are stuck because government has failed to provide investment orpportunities and employment and then you selfish indiviuals like chipimo flying on tax payers money. ASK him what the country has benefitted from flying….zero and you call these politicians…why then did not all other president who attended invited oppostion memebers….simple because of being prodent to national resources..chipimo has lost it on this one. I am now likeing HH despite The Post scandlising him. HH is a beter candidate than Chipimo.

    Fellow zambians let us embrace Mr Chipimo’s style of politics because it is offering solutions to the current govment.
    opposing for the sake opposing is not taking us any where.

    Most decent men and women applaud the decision NAREP and FDD made to accept invitation to Rio. Pay no attention to those opposition parties lacking decency. Their political future is bleak as most of us will never ever vote for them.

    Pipo pliz len 2 appreciat gud things! Chipimo & Nawakwi r also Zambians dispit being Leaders of oposition parties, hence they deserv 2b invited by HE like any other citizen, there4 its nt wasting resources as u put it u dull chaps who r jst jelos wit dis two real leaders nt golila leaders lik HH nd Miyanda who suport climinals nd maderers. Us who pay tax r quit nd u evil tax evaders r toking 2 much as if u contribut 2 our national cofers! U cant compare Chipimo 2 Nevers de former Pastor, backslider nd opotunist like HH who cant start nd ve faild their own parties. Chipimo is a young nd brilliant leader who wil giv real checks nd balances 2 PF Govt nd wil b given chance 4 jst 5yrs 2 rule Zambia in 2051 then PF wil tak bak its position. HH nd Nevers cant b trust with such Presidential Powers coz they r evil minded. So thos condeming r jst fulz nd idiot who only c negativs in de PF. Bt de truth is PF wil maneg to organiz ZAMBIA.

    well, some people can be mean. why do we always comdemn HH as a person. why cant people analyse.the substance of what HH says other than throwing tribal tantrums. may be analysis is too much to ask. pf cadres, you need to go back to school and other zambians to correct the mess you put us in.

    ELIAS…You didnt have to go half way across the world to promote dialogue. CNP ,you and the real opposition parties can still do the same here in Zambia. Its not about you being with CNP…its about your contributing to the plunder of ZED money. What is it you discussed with CNP that you feel was not possible to do here and at ZERO COST to the already heavily taxed zambians? DIALOGUE my foot,you and the poltical HULE just did it for your own selfish reasons!!! and for CNP it was just another publicity stance and cover for the relatives and friends he took to Brazil for shopping ”sustainable” buses ,shoes,clothes,viagra and bombasers!

    Yes, what sata did was purely a publicity stance. If chipimo couldn’t see, then I do not think he has what it takes to lead this nation. These are the kind of leaders that will plunge our country into oblivion when given a chance.

    compare analysis by Botswana as a government and number of delegation sent to RIO then you will understand why tswanas are making progressing than Zambia. Zambia is full of confussing, people not prudent in tax payers money utilisation and confused leadership. am slowly begining to like HH and UPND. UPND seems to be more logical in resource manangement then what i voted for.

What do you expect of him and Nawakwi?Bags of praise for Chimbwi no plan.I was once on a flight with Nkandu Luo before the elections and she flew second class with us.This speaks volumes of how much tax payers money is thrown down the drain by this irresponsible government.

    Everyone knows that, at the end of five years it will be a legal requirement for GRZ to build UKWA a mansion and provide him with state security.What a travesty because we know he UKWA does not and will not represent value for money he gets paid and will get paid after after five years.They will have the so called off shore ZAM troop accounts with their sons and daughters studying abroad on tax payers account.Such old fashioned laws must be gotten rid of as they are unnecessary expenditure.To prevent such misuse of government funds,any leader with relatives studying abroad on tax payers account should declare it in the public interest register for all to see.Let these ex Presidents fend for themselves as they are private citizens just like us.They can afford it and as such they ought to pay for their services.

    Chipimo is a Snake and a conman! I was wondering why young vibrant leaders in Zambia like John Phiri could resign such a big position of Secretary General of NAREP. John phiri has been a focused vibrant young leader in Zambia from the time he started heading Global Justice Zambia. Immediately he resigned, i new that there was problem in NAREP and i new the problem was not with John but Chipimo. John humbly resigned and humbly joined the PF because he means well for Zambia. Besides, i would encourage him to work with the PF so that he can grow politically and mature politically unlike Chipimo who wants to climb a tree from the top. Ma youth open your eyes Chipimo is on our side!

  35. mumbi phiri

    Elias Chipimo is a tax payer also and needs exposure in order to mature in politics so that trip was good for him. Let HH hung himself or climb a pole if he wants. 2016 will be fertile ground to finish of the bitterness of HH coz he will be mud by then looking at the way he is reasoning. HH thinks he knows politics but has no timing with his moves. this is making him more unpopular than 2011. I feel sorry for him that he has “i know it all” attitude.

    Mr chipimo i was thinking you are reasonable enough to know that this man (sata) is trying to weaken your party support from the public… why are you sooo shallow minded you have already disappointed me your are very stupid…. you join hands to steal taxpayers money…. think twice mwana every well meaning Zambian in the opposition would not support such a thing.. do you even have advisers????? consult your minions… Okabwa yebo……………

    I see Chipimo you will soon join P F. Some one told me a week ago that you seemed to be the next Republican President; but now there is a big question mark. Sata himself never accepted invitations from state house, what kind of a person are you? Nasula.

    CHIPIMO IS RIGHT TO HAVE BROUGHT BRAZILIAN DIAPERS FOR HH AND HIS SUPPORTERS. IT IS EXTREMELY CHILDISH FOR THE OPPOSITION TO COMPLAIN & CRY OVER STRAIGHT FORWARD NATION INTEREST. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT HAS NO POLITICAL AFFILIATION AND IS A RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL THOSE WHO WANTS TO PLAY A ROLE IN THE CURRENT & FUTURE GOVERNANCE OF THIS COUNTRY. CHIPIMO SHOULD DELIVER THE DIAPERS TO THE UPND CRY BABY BUNTY SUCKA MAMA TEE-TEE MUMMY WENT TO … TO BUY ANOTHER BABY! FYOLA * 1000!

    Tax payer money or not that money is budgeted for in the national cake for the president and state house, lets not blame the receivers who did it in good faith and the President for being included in the budget this is for the betterment of our only mother Zambia and i agree that they (Nawakwi & Chipimo) are also tax payers who needs exposure. Unza problems should be dealt with in depthly that is include all stakeholders in finding everlasting solutions because these problems have been with us for a long time and solutions can be found. lets understand government business which is confused with politics however marry not the two.
