Mulongoti Plans To Form Political Party

Mulongoti Plans To Form Political Party

MIKE Mulongoti says he has plans of forming a political party on which to stand for presidency in the 2016 elections.

Mulongoti, who is, former works and supply minister in the MMD government, yesterday said he had been traversing the countryside to garner support from would-be political supporters, before launching a platform to stand on.

Mulongoti said he did not fully agree and share the values, aspirations and ideologies of the current available political parties hence his reluctance to join them.

“The Constitution of Zambia does not allow you to contest as a presidential candidate without being sponsored by a political party, meaning that you have no choice if you want to be President, you must find a vehicle (party). It’s not debatable. It’s a question of when,” Mulongoti said.

“It’s the timing. That one, (date) I cannot tell you. Forming a party involves a lot of consultations. We want to be democratic.”
Sources disclosed that Mulongoti and some other named officials had been holding meetings with a view to forming a political party that would counter the PF.

Mulongoti said he and his political allies whom he had received support from so far, would announce to the nation when they were ready.
Asked when the ideas of forming a party emerged as he had been a staunch supporter of President Michael Sata in the 2011 elections, Mulongoti said:

“Don’t forget I wanted to stand as vice-president in 2011 so that when Rupiah Banda goes, I take over in 2016, that is the direction I was taking. Of course that time, the platform was supposed to be MMD but the matrix changed so I had to find another route.

I lent support to the PF in the hope that maybe they will do so well that there will be no need for me to want to be President. The reason why we aspire to be there is to bring change.”

Asked if his plans to embark on campaigns for his presidential bid was to satisfy his personal ambition to be President only or being unsatisfied with what was obtaining in the country under the PF, Mulongoti said: “I supported Chiluba, he became President, I supported Mwanawasa, he became President. I supported Mr. Banda, he became President, what is wrong with supporting myself?” he asked.

“It’s now me next. As at now, I am the most prepared candidate. Right now I have better credentials than those who will aspire (for presidency in 2016).There is no guarantee that because you are in government, then you will be a success.”

Mulongoti said so far, he was disappointed with what was happening in the country and that Zambians could do better.

Quizzed further, on whether or not it was too early for him to judge President Sata and the PF, Mulongoti said President Sata would seriously and continuously be assessed by him on a daily basis until 2016.

“How long did it take to assess Rupiah Banda, only two years and some months,” he said.

He added that even if President Sata decided not to stand for presidency in 2016, it was a question of who they put up for leadership.
“If the person who is going to take over from Mr Sata is not acceptable to lead, I have to stand.

If I was MMD, my fight would have been to make MMD attractive, so that when it is my turn, I can be voted into office. That is how you work. You help prop others. Let them perform and deliver, the credit also comes to you. Then you go to the people and say ‘this is what we have done’,” he said.

And Mulongoti said that he anchored MMD because he stood against all odds for the party.

    We respect the fact that you (Mulongoti) have a constitutional right to form a political party. However, this doesn’t mean you have to abuse this right. Realisticaly speaking, your chances of becoming Zambian president are between zero and one but very much close to zero.
    To say the truth, your ka party is just a way of earning a living and not to rule Zambia because you yourself know that you can never be our president.

  24. da truth   October 8, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    to be honest….nothing would surprise me..the decisions Zambians are making these days leave alot to be’s like we have lost complete respect and value for our country that we can elect anyone as president…take time to research and see the kind of people that Got these developed countries to were they are…the truth is a president can only offer what he has..the knowledge and ability he has.If you elect and Economist like botswana did in masire and mogae(oxford universty)..u get someone who can manage and allocate funds and make decisions that will benefit the economy. If you appoint an ARMY personel..u get strict laws and harsh punishments…if you elect a policeman..hehehe..well im sure we ol know wat our policemen do…. if you elect a doctor or health personel, ul find the health sector improvin faster than others…if you elect a judge or lawyer youll see justice …why??? a soldier dznt understand economics to the level wr he cn mke informed decsions on the economy,…nd the same goes for other professions……What our country needs is intellectuals people that can mke things happen because they have the deep knowledge nd understanding on how to go abt it…but my poor country men have allowed their minds to be clouded by poverty… even if a farmer..A FARMER promises them less tax and doubled salaries ,they cant smell a rat!! WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING TO COME FROM??? CANT YOU SEE YOU ARE BEING CHEATED??!! zambia zambia zambia!!

    Mr. Mulongoti has interpreted the term JOB CREATION very well – he will create a lot of vacancies. He will need a party secretary general, chairpersons for various committees, cadres, oh it is countless. This is job creation mwe bantu.
