Politics | Of Deception: UPND Recruits Dangerous & Violent Regime Change Strategist Joseph Paul Trippi.

Lusaka – 28th November, 2020.

For a long time, we have had civil organizations and media houses in Zambia that have twisted, manipulated and misrepresented clear and straightforward news to suit their hidden agenda of supporting their fellow bedmates of regime change, examples are numerous in the public domain.

In their latest bid to usurp power from the PF government by whatever means possible, paper trail evidence has been uncovered which implicates the UPND leadership and its foreign sponsors of having hired a known regime change agent, Joseph Paul Trippi who hides under the guise of being a political strategist when in essence he is a die-hard regime change agent who employs dirty tactics to achieve his objectives, including funning riots, economic sabotage and violence.

So who is Joseph Paul Trippi, anyway?

Joseph Paul Trippi is an American who claims to be Political Strategist but is a regime change agent who recently planted violence in Tanzania in a failed bid to institute regime change against Magufuli.

He has caused chaos in African countries during elections particularly in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Burundi, Egypt, Kenya and he has been currently been set up for Zambia and he is supported by foreign funding.

In 2006, he formulated the Vanguard Africa Institute. The Vanguard Africa planted violence in Zimbabwe during the late Mugabe era in favour of the late Morgan Tsvangirai and led to the government instability and it was fortunately a failed bid too.

The Vanguard is now set to disrupt elections in Uganda after successfully planting violence in Malawi. Trippi usually sends in political mercenaries to destabilize countries in favour of his paymasters who use violence and economic sabotage to fun mob indoctrination and gear them for riots and public demonstrations.

According to Nerrty Report, he was recently recruited to support regime change movements in East African countries focusing on Paul Kagame and Museveni.

Back home, from late last year, Zambians have become all too familiar with the following words: Human rights, democracy, transparency, civil society, rule of law and fact-finding missions. The manner in how regime change agents in Zambia and abroad use these words to make their arguments and justify their unpatriotic activity, is almost identical to how glossaries explain their purpose, which is described in Random House Webster’s dictionary as a list of difficult or specialised terms with accompanying definitions.

Organizations like Alliance for Community Action with their yellow card campaign strategy are nothing but a civil disobedience campaign. They are too local agents of regime change. What blew this plan out of the water is when you discover how much money has been pumped into Laura Miti and the personal building she suddenly been able to build and is still on them.

For a long time, we have had civil organizations and media houses in Zambia that have twisted, manipulated and misrepresented clear and straightforward news to suit their hidden agenda of supporting their fellow bedmates of regime change, examples are numerous in the public domain.

Media bias for one cause or another has become very prevalent in today’s Zambia’s setup, thanks to the defunct Post Newspaper, which ran a political agenda under the umbrella of a media organization. Organizations such as the Mast and Diggers must be watched carefully as they get funding from regime change agents as they currently have no capacity to meet their printing needs given the new digital era when they all print less than 2,000 copies per day and sell less that 55%.

There is clear bias in the reporting of political stories by both News Diggers and The Mast and we believe this has had some serious consequences on people’s ability to trust the PF government in one way or another. Media houses that support regime change are guilty of many offences, some of which are:

Sensationalism: These media houses are guilty of this offence, as they has regularly over publicized negative and irrelevant views to paint the PF government in the negative. Sensationalism may include presentations of interesting topics in a sensationalist, trivial, or tabloid manner.

Story Selection and Placement: These media houses have a pattern of reporting news stories that overlap with a specific agenda. This type of bias has been happening repeatedly reporting stories that support only one political opinion. These media houses are also guilty of bias by selection of sources, which means they have been including in their news more sources that support one view over another. This bias occurs when a reporter uses such phrases as “experts believe,” “observers say,” or “most people believe.”

Labeling: This type of bias has occurred consistently when these media houses have promoted bias labeling of PF politicians and groups with extreme labels of violence and corruption accusation while leaving UPND politicians and groups unlabeled or with more mild labels, or vice versa.

Bias By Spin: These media houses have also consistently promoted one-sided negative explanation of an event or policy, to the segregation of the other to paint the PF government as being corrupt and a failed government. Spin involves tone. It’s a reporter’s personal comments about objective facts; makes one side’s philosophical perspective look better than another.

Bias By Omission And Selection: These media houses have on several occasions been biased by omission – leaving out one side of a story, or one aspect of a story to promote the agenda of their bedfellows the UPND, against the PF.
