UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has been arrested

Hakainde Hichilema

Police have arrested United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema.

This was after Mr Hichilema was questioned at the Force Headquarters in connection with his recent statement alleging that the PF Government had sent youth to Sudan to be trained as militias, a statement he refused to retract.

Mr Hichilema is also believed to have been questioned in relation to his recent visit to Evelyn Hone College.

One of his lawyers who accompanied him to the Police headquarters Sakwiba Sikota hinted to journalists that the UPND leader has been charged with treason.

Mr Hichilema has since been taken to the Magistrate court were the charges against him are expected to be read out.

Earlier Police were forced to change the room were Mr Hichilema was to be questioned from, after the UPND leader refused to be interrogated from upstairs in preference for a room on the ground floor of the building.

He cited the incident last week when he together with his cadres were tear-gassed on the second floor when he was summoned at Lusaka central Police.

      In zambia its becoming fashonable,for one to become state president one must taste prison at least! (Check KK, FTJ, SATA, now HH) . But this country is sliding so  low….Sata ,In 1991,shouted the ” cache of guns and weapons was buried at a farm in SINDAMISALE chipata,”putting the country in an ALARMIST danger. Wasn’t that SATA ? Was he charged for treason? How about the demeaning” cabbage” commentaries he made on Mwanawasa? PF and the POST are hypocrites to the core, LIARS, truly double standards!!. Compare these two links , ZNS training up to university in Sudan incorporate military, Sudan is at war. Kabimba should not lie, since when did Zambia start a Uni exchange program with a country at war like Sudan!!

When they had a share of govt finance and benefiting from Mwanawasa, (14billion loan DBZ ,Zambian airways ZRA tax ,airport fees wavers, taskforce benefits,and businesses), the POST editorials demonized SATA, his lies and crooked character on the MERZAF saga,Avondale and his trust fund. Now that Sata has allowed the POST to eat in govt treasury , It’s praises each day! The POST have a pure opportunistic behavior unveiling their lies, these double standards , opportunism,unethical practices of these unprincipled heartless demagogues will allow Zambians make informed decisions.

      I don’t get it. Are you saying Sata should have arrested himself when he made the weapons statement? OR are you saying if one government neglected to follow the law, so the subsequent ones should do the same? Courts are good places to prove your point. If HH has evidence, he will emerge stronger than he is today. So this is a good thing both for the law as well as HH. Let the judge reach his or her decision.

    Police needs urgent reforms, It’s a serious governance issue.The biggest problem in Zambia is this barbaric rotten CONSTITUTION that was crafted to save the MINORITY colonialists and elites as gods on earth ,no one else above them. In modern Zambia, it’s a serious betrayal of the liberation struggle to keep this governance structure&Constitution. In fact Moral conscious demands removing the colonial past where Police and dogs were used to suppress the majority citizens, today, this ugliness still reigns. Shame! What’s even more disheartening is that after independence, this constitution should have been completely repealed,replaced with a Zambian one crafted on the principles of RIGHTS, DIGNITY &RESPECT FOR MANKIND. And declare ,NEVER AGAIN shall police be tools of oppression!!

      @Cacitikanalelo has already answered it better. Just because the previous government failed to follow the law and not cage Sata does not entale it’s a precedence that should be followed by every other government. This baffoon hakainde was given a leeway out by diplomatically being asked to retract his statement, but he has opted to challenge the government and I doubt it very much than he will win. Not even 200,000 tongas will help him when he’s caged, for he asked for it. Don’t play with the state especially if you are in the wrong. Ubuteko buteko. He should have shown maturity by doing the simplest of all things; retracting his statements.

    Running a marathon run like a 100 metres run has many side effects. You can run out of steam, you can colapse, you can be beaten by those who are taking it easy. In politics you don’t start high speed campaigns just year 1 after loosing. You give winners time to establish a legacy that you can then start criticing. You can criticize each and every day – criticize any talk, any laugh  any run, any jump and anything your opponent does, wrong or right, what do you expect in return? Its national politics not family politics. It’s abnormal to criticize for the sake of it, only tthinking that you are more brainy than others. No one is that supper brainy, we are all Mr or ms averages. we can only excel in complement with others.  High speed on the road cause accidents and kills.

HH will be more powerful in prison as a symbol of resistance against PFs despotic rule. A similar arrangement was made in 1964 when KK was detained and Mainza Chona led UNIP in his absence. A united opposition is the best way to fight these communist dictators.

HH strongly believes in freedom of expression and democracy and he is prepared to languish in prison/die than submit to a dictator. He was given a choice to admitt being guity or face a treason charge. He chose to stick to his strong belief in freedom of expresssion.

    I keep telling UPND supporters that HH will never rule because he runs a regional tribal party. The same UPND supporters are attacking a large group of voters that occupy Luapula, Northern, Copperbelt and most of Lusaka. The bembas you keep calling names are also getting irritated and will never vote for HH. Eastern province is full of bemba lovers as opposed to Tonga. Learn the Math. Very simple advice to UPND go country wide and do not piss off the other tribes. Over his arrest I think HH thinks being arrested wins popularity. Those tactics worked but times and days change. Situations also differ like that of Mandela.

    Let this be a lesson to all that the tide among the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise has changed and no one should be careless let alone reckless when it comes to issues of national security and diplomatic relations.

    No one except those with mandate, proper secrecy clearance and intelligence has the right to delve into these matters carelessly. I have one problem though, DPP has now made two mistakes … first, they issued a call out with instructions for questioning “without” warn and caution.

    Under these circumstances, HH was not supposed to be arrested just questioned. If he refused to retract the statement which he did, then they should have issued a warrant of arrest signed by a judge. Then call him for the next stage of arresting him.

      Sorry my friend. In our zambian law, the police can arrest you on the basis of suspicion and later released if they find you have no case to answer. And the DPP has the powers to issue such an arrest warrant without necessarily involving the judges. This is zambian law we are talking about my friend not american. And I am surprised with your intelligence you can question the caliber of Mutembo Nchito who single handedly took on the corrupt MMD without fear. He’s no **** as some people on this fora portray him to be because he did not leave his lucrative career to come and make money he already has. His was a calling to serve the country period. You even know why RB and the MMD could not arrest him or mmembe over the DBZ issue because they are innocent.

    Cont. … The other mistake here is charging him with treason, a very smart judge would let HH go scot free because the law applies differently there compared to inciting and disturbance of peace.

    I personally think treason would be harder to prove as the burden of proof is higher compared to a lesser charge. HH was dead wrong to say what he said and now DPP is dead wrong to charge him with treason and arresting him when the instructions were otherwise. 

    Having said the above DPP’s action of procedural impropriety can turn out to be even more detrimental to the process the HH’s irresponsible utterances. Should my legal theory prove to be right HH will be out on the street emerging stronger in the eyes of ignorant followers once acquitted of the treason charge.

      You are not privy to the interpretation of treason by zambian law as the DPP is. But you are entitled to your own opinion. Lets wait and see. And according to my understanding, a judge is simply a lawyer who has been given the priviledge to mediate over cases. It does not make them any more intelligent than the ordinary lawyers. Actually they have it easy because law clerks do most of them research and work for them where as lawyers who do the research themselves sometimes do have a better understanding of the law.

      The level of headstrong HH has exhibited and beyond the scope of any sane human being. He’s basically taunting the government, especially the president. Lets see how he extricates himself from this. Just my opinion too.

    If this HH has committed a crime let him face the law fairly. HH’s arrogance will be his undoing. UPND followers please do not follow this guy blindly. The problem with UPND is that after Mazoka’s demise (MHSRIP), the Tongas were just looking for a rich Tonga to replace him and they ended up with one who has no political past and clout. HH should realise that he can never be like Sata and will never be able to mimic his tactics. He wants to provoke the state into caging him so that he cries to high heaven about oppression. Mr HH a crime is a crime no matter who are  wiil and if you have committed one you definetly pay for it and that will be the end of ka UPND.

    Cont. …  I learnt very long time ago that an incompetent prosecutor is the best thing to ever happen to sophisticated criminal. On this charge, HH can easily walk and even get away with murder the O J Simpson style here.

    Charging the accused with the right charges has ninety percent chance of getting them convicted, anything else leads to mistrials and nolle prosequi, unless the state has more evidence than just the reckless HH utterances, treason would be very hard to prove in this case. 

    I may be wrong, I have been wrong before but I am not afraid to state my analysis of any legal issue not as an expert but as an amateur. I am an expert in a different field but that field allows me to interact with conceptual legal issues every day, I rest my case.

      That’s what I like about you. You say your mind whether wrong or right. But on this one mwana, you are not Mutembo Nchito because he has been practicing law longer probably than you and he’s very good at it. For him to give Hakainde a leeway, I believe was done out of goodwill so that this case does not become a circus. Not that he did not have a case against him. And now hakainde has to prove otherwise he did not intend to committee treason because between Mumba Malila and Nchito who are always consulting each other, he’s in for a big fight. Unless otherwise the president intervenes and invokes his powers as head of state.

    Earnestly speaking, if Mr HH has any evidence to substantiate his statement/claim, then his political life will not incure any deficit but on the other hand, his accusers will automatically detriment their reputation and the good image of Zambia. Further, Mr. HH is facing a very serious charge and I am not hinting that he must compromise his defence strategy nor give the oponents unfair edge over him. In lieu of celebrating HH’s arrest, every concerned person should critically mirror and internalise his claims without attaching his ethinicity nor his background merticracily. Explore all pertinet issues and do not be overwhelmed by emotions.HH is still innocent until proven guilty and the international community is closely following this matter. Best legal fraternity is readily available.

    Attention, please rise above tribal lines whoever the sender number 58 is in that national matters which hold true and unity should be dealt with in modes free of ethinicity, haterage, emotional reactions and uncalculated judgements designed to demean other ethinic groups in your country. We in the international community we are proud to see you Zambians celebrating your democracy in the manner that reflect tolerance of one another based on national interests and unity. Like any other tribe, the Tonga speakers still retain their right to support a person they see fit as and when such need arises. HH is a leader of a cause not for Tongas and I take it that he is a highly learnered individual considering his well constructed academic english. Please embrace yourselves collectively.

    HH is advocating change which is what people of that country desperately need. Only those in power are resistant to change because they percieve that what HH stands for as a catalyst to corruption free progressive society. Refrain from calling HH an inexperienced politician.

    This is the worst government this country has ever had. Today, Zambia has all the characteristics of a failed State.
    In a failed State, the police and the judiciary serve the interests of the President and the Party in power, and not the interest of the nation. In a failed State all key institutions are run by the President`s cronies and not professionals. That is the situation in Zambia right now. Very unfortunate!

    Do not be intimidated by individuals who still believe in this day and age that to be a Tonga is a disability or a lesser human being or a curse.

    HH has scored positive points for the oppressed (Imaginary or genuine).
    That is why governments have PR gurus to stop certain “point scoring” activities from happening by simply giving the chap a yellow card.
    Once you give a red card, it becomes a big talking point, unlike a yellow card that we forget about easily at the office on Monday!
