Mulenga Sata, the most ungrateful person in this country

Mulenga Sata must be one of the most ungrateful persons in this country. Of all the injudicious reasons for defecting, Mulenga Sata’s wins the prize for being the most otiose.

His own father did not appoint him into government perhaps knowing the sort of person he was. But Edgar Lungu nominated him to Parliament and made him deputy minister at state house and later provincial minister for Lusaka and now he can claim to have been sidelined by Edgar Lungu.

To add insult to injury he even suggests that his father is turning in his grave for MMD infiltration into PF when he Mulenga is joining people who insulted him personally.
Barely two years ago, the mentor he is following, Guy Scott, stated publicly that Mulenga could not succeed his father because his mother was of Malawian origin and therefore according to the Constitution he could not stand as President.

This statement came from indications that Mulenga was harbouring ambitions of becoming state President soon after his father had passed away.
How many people have forgotten that as President Sata’s body was being ferried to Lusaka, cadres wearing T shirts bearing ‘Mulenga for President’ message were on display.
This was highly unseemly, inappropriate and in very bad taste and should have been stopped because Zambia is not a monarchy where sons succeed.

When asked about this untimeliness Mulenga Sata is reported to have said that he was ready to succeed his father who mentored him not to shy away from challenges and asked about youths that were chanting slogans suggesting that he must contest the presidency Mulenga is reported to have said, “These things happen, you have heard my name being proposed here, it is politics. I have been mentored in the school of Sata not to shy away. So why not?”
The other reason given by Mulenga regarding the delay in swearing him in is equally otiose because he is not the only provincial minister that has not been sworn in as yet. His lack of patience speaks volumes of his character.

There is no doubt that President Lungu must have been positioning him for the Executive Mayor portfolio, which he aspired for and should therefore have exercised an amount of trust and confidence in the President who had elevated him through the ranks to the position of minister.
It is regrettable that in leaving the PF Sata could even scandalise the economic programme of the PF which was championed by his father and which the government is currently trying to manage given the current socio political and economic circumstances.

However, the worst and most illogical statement is the one parroting Guy Scott’s assertion that PF has been taken over by MMD when the so-called defectors are joining UPND which has its own seasoned and long standing members who have stood with HH for years and are now being eclipsed by these staged defections.
The truth is that chickens will soon come home to roost and those who invest in ingrates will suffer the pain and consequences of their failure to judge character.

Zambia Daily Nation


  1. His Father did not want to ne dragged into cheap Politiking of being accused of appointing his own.He at least showed character by letting Mulenga find his feet Politicaly.
    And in a small way he became mayor of lusaka.He did not beg for that Ministerial job unless am not privy to cetain infor.It was purely a gimmick by Elder Lungu to win kudos from the general populace.

    He has realised the suffering of the majority and known that he must put People first before self.

    Its not being ungratefull but a realisation of the truth.I urge the Author to reflect and see if indeed this is the Zambia you want to leave for your children and grand ones.Go out in the Compounds and see how our people have become worse destitutes.Cry my beloved Country.
