Hichilema pledges closer relations with Traditional leaders

Share

Mr.Hichilema addressing village headmen in Chongwe

United Party for National Development UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says his government will place the institution of traditional leaders at the core of its decentralization program due to its closeness to the grassroot.

 

And 30 village headmen in chieftainess Nkomesha Mukamambo’s area in Chongwe district of the Lusaka province have pushed their weight behind the UPND and its leadership in this year’s tripartite elections.

Speaking when he met the headmen before addressing a huge public rally at Twikatane School in Lukonshi ward on Sunday,12th June 2011,Hichilema said it is unfortunate that the institution of traditional leaders especially headpersons has been neglected under the MMD government and vowed to revive it.

He said it is common knowledge that village headmen were closer to the people than people in government and was better suited to deal with issues of sustainable development hence his party’s desire to closely work with them and ensure that their welfare is looked into.

“Your people gathered in here occupy a very special place in the UPND manifesto due to your close relationship with our suffering grassroot.[pullquote]UPND President Hakainde Hichilema expressed displeasure to note that Twikatane School with a population of more than 700 pupils only has three teachers and wondered what strides the MMD government and its education minister Dora Siliya were boasting of as having made in the sector.[/pullquote]

It is a pity that the MMD government as failed to realize that fact and have reduced you to common citizens despite being the custodians of this country’s values and customs. We will as UPND ensure that you are consulted on every aspect of governance in order for both the traditional leadership and central government to move at the same pace of development “Hichilema said.

The opposition leader cited the distribution of inputs under the farmer input support program, FISP as one government program where the institution of traditional leaders is never consulted in preference for ruling party cadres, a situation he pledged to deal with once in power.

He said decentralization through the involvement of traditional leaders is inevitable if the country is to attain meaningful and sustainable development in its quest to attain the middle income status by 2030 and was quick to indicate that the rate at which the country’s development process is going will render the quest a far-fetched dream.

“Look at the roads leading to this place, how does one drive for three hours to merely cover a distance of 50 kilometers, this is unacceptable and has to change. That change can only be possible if we work together with you our traditional leaders in changing the development process of this country. It is a pity that you are made to scramble for the four bags of fertilizer together with your subjects thus losing their respect. How do we run the country like that, it’s a shame” Hichilema added.

He implored the traditional leadership in the area to remain resolute in their quest for real development as they owe it to both their subjects and posterity which will judge them harshly should they fail to lead their people into making decisive and forecast decisions in this year’s elections.

And the 30 village headmen that attended the meeting pledged to stand firm and lead their people into backing the UPND and its candidates in this year’s elections saying the country needs fresh ideas in addressing its challenges such as education, health and agriculture which have been allowed to degenerate to lowest standards.

UPND rally in Chongwe

Reading out the resolutions, Dickson Michelo said the traditional leaders have vowed to stand behind Mr. Hichilema for Presidency due to his vibrancy, intelligence and focus in dealing with national problems unlike the current leadership that has completely failed to meet the present and future developmental challenges.

Mr. Michelo said the failure by the MMD government to regard them as partners in development have resulted into the headmen taking the drastic decision which they were optimistic is in the best interest of their area and nation as a whole and implored leaders in other areas to join hands with them in ensuring that there is meaningful regime change after this year’s polls.

The headmen said they were tired of being used as pawns in a game of chess at the detriment of development and cited the poor road network, distance to health and education facilities as well as the lack of prudent planning and management of the agriculture sector by the Rupiah Banda led administration for their choice of the UPND leader in the 2011 general elections.

And addressing the crowd, UPND President Hakainde Hichilema expressed displeasure to note that Twikatane School with a population of more than 700 pupils only has three teachers and wondered what strides the MMD government and its education minister Dora Siliya were boasting of as having made in the sector.

“How do you have a school of 700 pupils being manned by 3 teachers? This is a joke which cannot be tolerated in this age. The country is boasting of having made strides in the improvement of the education sector in line with its commitment to World Leaders through the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs.Where are the achievements? As the UPND, we are saying 16 teachers will be deployed to this school by the end of this year immediately you vote us into government” the UPND leader told the cheering crowd.

Meanwhile, leading Monze farmer and businessman, Mike Couvaras advised the youths to rise to the challenge and vote for a youthful leadership
in this year’s election as time has come for them to dictate the future direction of this country.

  1. The trouble with HH is that he seems desperate in his assertions of embracing of the way forward. he should have kept his tail between his legs , swallow his pride and follow Mr Sata as a partner. He may have lost but he would have come out of the whole ordeal with greater credibility and utmost and used that a s stepping stone in the future.
    He epitomises the greediness though, of many Zambian men, wanting everything to themselves. I really do not understand.
    Traditional leaders mean nothing and they should be ignored and I have never understood why the have existed anyway. Most have not been to school, and the drag us back to the old days, the future is what is happening in the west, not headmen, traditional healers whatever the case. We let ourselves down badly. Thanks

    • Hhahaha Mushota, just keep licking your irish d …. There is no need of him to follow sata. Democracy allows people to form own parties, run them ans sell themselves the way they want. Keep licking please that d…

    • #1 Mushota. Great observation my sister-that is a great contribution-you have hit the nail on its head. Indeed HH let his ego prevail and that is one costly mistake he has made-he will definately come out number 3 and come 2016, he will even be beaten by his triebesmate Magande because to me he is more a sobber, down to earth person and his party will proof to be more inclusive and not a tribal one like UPND.

  2. Keep working hard you politicians. The time to convince the people is now. If you can come with issue-based campaigns that clearly show your intentions for this country once you’re in power, we might just give you a vote. It’s never too late. Sell yourselves to the electorate and don’t just make cheap claims like putting K5m as a minimum wage. The ball is in your court and so are your balls. Don’t be swayed by these cheap red-monkey- but/tock political clowns like Rupiah Bozo Banda

  3. I feel pitty for Mushota because her identity is being used by greedy PF cadres to promote their evil scheme. Anyway, back to the main story: HH is really causing a stir no wonder Mmembe and his vuvuzela have resolted to lies in an attempt to stop him. Excellent strategy Mr President. keep on consolidating the votes in areas where you can gain the maximum votes. You have a clear message for Zambia and you are not just criticising the MMD govt aimlessly but you are offering clearly defined solutions on how to address the problems. It’s no wonder that even RB has realised that surrendering power to you is the best option for Zambia. Forward with HH, forward with Zambia!!! Yes we can!!!

  4. Personally, I stopped reading anything written by Mushota becuase she just writes nosence. Actually, i wonder why LT do not just censure or completely block her from their webiste.

  5. Mushota, yopun look so beautiful and young and I guess you were still very young when Sata was in government brutalising anyone who comes against his way and his mentor Frderick Chiluba. If HH had gone with Sata, he wiould have been dumped all the same immediately Sata becomes President because they are birds of different feathers and Sata is in it to make up for the lost time since Chiluba dissapointed him. Sata who can’t hold a convention. He would be the worst dictator Zambia has ever had and you would miss RB. HH is the best candidate on the scene.

  6. I think HH has a vision for Zambia,am the top threee who honestly can address issues like he did in the article above????if it was old gangs they would have just spoken of Kapwepwe gray zulu,men in as much as we want to know our roots are we going to eat history thats why two people this year must go no matter what happens let them retire as we build our future,ancient politics is long gone viva youth,viva upnd viva 20hh

  7. Not to worry, I’ve been reliably been informed that Mushota’s comment was actually done for her by her social worker who’s responsible for her welfare!!!

  8. okay hh, you could get a distant 2nd position after mmd. but only if you stop telling lies like minimum wage k5million and all taxi drivers to be given loans to buy their own taxis as soon as you become president. not original at all, sounds more like an adaptation of the fairy tale of ’90 days more money in your pockets’ by pf. is that all you could pick up from the year long relationship with mr sata?

  9. after you have filled your tummies and pockets with bumper maize harvest, is that all you can say? i doubt whether those headmen are genuine, those resolutions sound hollow and rather untruthful for someone who has received fertiliser support. try another one hh.

  10. Viva HH, Sata wawa, where do you think you will get extra votes in addition to your Kaponya votes from LSK urban and northern part of the country, for PF history is about to repeat itself massive kaponya votes which are nothing to make the Cobra the presido.

  11. It’s time we restart our country. Why should we pick people from old school to lead us when we can lead ourselves? After all the future depends on us! My vote is on HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, i support him on principle, he the only one who represents me with REAL CHANGE, the reminders are from old school who thinks being old means good experience…HOW WRONG they are!! HHHHHHHHHHHH all the way…

  12. And which among the two is Mrs Hichilema?

    A. The one standing (nice back too)

    B. The one sitting (nice outfit too)

  13. I actually think Mushota’s comments are non-partisan, but of course partisan bloggers do not appreciate this they wish to hear only one voice

  14. HH you have my vote this year, you were ignored by the POST for a longtime, but now it seems Mmembe cant help it anymore becoz he has seen the steam behind Upnd.

  15. For once our students compliment Mushota for her comment with no racism and low personal self esteem. We need traditional leaders but we don’t want them to take us back to dark ages. Actually, we need to be advocating ongoing adult education and trade skills for our traditional leaders.

  16. politicians why do you keep on cheating chiefs and headmen? let these people alone please, they have no role to play in MODERN governance and as much as you politicians cheat chiefs and headmen, they equally cheat you that they have influence over their subjects and thus can ask them(subjects) to vote for you which is far from the truth. ONE CHIEF ONE VOTE ONE SUBJECT ONE VOTE………………………………………………………………………………………!

  17. When UPND talked about free education in the late 90s through one Andy Mazoka MMD under Chiluba said it is impossible but levy came in and copied it from UPND. When UPND under Andy talked about free fertiliser to the peasant farmers MMD under Chiluba rebuffed, destroyed agriculture and claimed impossible where will money come from but LEVY came in and adopted the UPND policy and we have been having bumper harvests since then. “PF Governement” if you have no ideas how those things can be archieved just ask otherwise you are behaving like Chiluba’s MMD which plundered all the money refused to offer share it with people of Zambia. VOTE UPND and see proper develop.

  18. 24. “meant refused to share”
    There are many policies MMD copied from UPND but are failing to implement them properly since they are not the originators. Dont just say impossible when this Government is busy misusing public funds. There is too much stealing and misuse in Govt at the moment and this is the same money UPND want to apply to benefit everybody.

  19. BaMushota amano ubunono!! Please bear in mind that not everyone will support your preferred choice. Your opinion will not always other people’s opinion. There will always be others wanting to support diffrence choices from yours. Focuss your debate on issues said at the rally, than to ask others to buy your talk, otherwise you will soon diminish your relavance.

  20. So HH haz ambitionz of forming government, where? There are a lot of benefits in being realistic in life for for free.
    Don’t mistake me for a PF or indeed MMD sympathizer (though theze may be allowed to think of forming government), the UPND iz fishing on very very dry land. The very distant third pozition they may get will send the party into oblivion. 

  21. There is too much political circus in Zamvbia. The other day some chiefs from sotherm province defect to the rulling party, and today others pledge to seriously work with HH.

  22. young energetic healthy good looking, what more can we look for in a leader? some says yellow teeth, old wrinkled looks, diabetes, hypertension, prostrate too numerous to itemise! Goooooo HHHHHHHHHHH

  23. young energetic healthy good looking, what more can we look for in a leader? some says yellow teeth, old wrinkled looks, diabetes, hypertension, prostrate too numerous to itemise! Goooooo HHHHHHHHHHH

  24. How can HH go to these poor villagers and lie to them that he can bring 16 teachers to that school before the end of the year if he wins elections. How can he partronise ouyr parents in that manner? Does he think those villagers are so ignorant about how government works? And then he is courageous and confortable enough to allow himself make such a st.u.p.i.d promise to the whole country and expects us to take him serious as a leader. Do these leaders honestly think that because they are dull then we are also as dull as them? Anyway, RB is winning. And you know what? Because HH is daft, when he loses elections he will still wonder why he lost. He will wonder: “..But nenzo chosa ma-speech yali powerful, maje ce bantu sibanavote bwino…”. At this point in time, I’m safer with RB…

  25. HH have u refused to accept the position of MINISTER in MMD and be careful, you are criticizing MMD when your MPs want you to marry RB and are busy attacking PF. Your seem to have no control on the affairs of your party. Anyway, continue splitting MMD votes.Help them to pack and go!!!

  26. Mushota dont think we are all illiterate…nine mwine lubemba with a Phd and i am more educated than you…What makes you think that traditional leaders have nothing to offer to the country…go to hell with your western style of life and leave us in our own arena…….why do you always boast of your education…utuntemba twa masukulu yaku UK eto muletupangilapo icongo…..NONSENSE…..I am young,energetic with good sense of reasoning….

  27. typical zambians indeed, instead of analysing what has been said you attack the person who said it. without bias i would like to say that HH’s campaigns and the way he addresses the issues makes sense to me. i have read about RB campaigns, Sata’s campaigns they were field with blaming and and attacking other people..i am now convinced that RB and Sata can not take this country anywhere,

  28. HH you are the right man to lead our country. I heard MMD president saying, we(they-MMD members) have eaten enough let us give a little to the popo, this is why they are now busy blind folding us that they are bring development. Real change is only through HH. VIVA HH you will get my vote no matter what the outcome of 2011 elcetion results. We are tired of OLD MADALAS leading this country to poverty PERIOD.

  29. I am proud of my chiefs and headmen in my home village Samfya no one has commented on being partisan. They are all neutral. Thumbs up my leaders.

  30. Mushota, its you who has a tail, which you aquired coz of eating monkeys, atase!!!

    Sata is a blind man who knows nothing, let alone comedy. HH is too smart to follow that finished politician who has reached political menopouse. Sata’s schemes were discovered, he never meant well, very deceptive indeed. Anyway, evil never propspers!!!!

  31. MMD and UPND, why turn to us poor chiefs in the last hour? Our subjects have already told us that they have been cheated for so long and they want to give Mr Sata and PF a chance in 2011. HH has to wait for UPND convetion outcome after Mr Sata has won elections because the latest is that he has completely lost ground and the preferred man in UPND is …..Prof……Oh you can let the cat out. Bye bye MMD we have not seen anything in 20 YEARS and surely the grading of the selected roads cannot bring food for our families. We aint dull please!!!!! Wind and time of change is here here for Sata and PF. Viva Ubwatooooooooooooooooooo

  32. I am an avowed egalitarianist and I get the spook when people begin proposing the creation super citizens out of village headmen and consigning the rest to just ordinary citizens. I can sense the formation of the nucleus of future grand corruption!
    Beware, Zambia!

  33. Its good that Kalale is gone. Let Sata get what belongs to him please he also a Zambian. We shall count and give the votes as cast. Ba Kalale, it was too much three elections mulechinga fye umunenu? Continue with your captivating campaigns PF you are so amazing and all youths are behind this genuine and committed leadership of Sata. W/Province we understand is 100% PF whilst Central Prov. has move to 80%. Youn fool some people sometime but you cant fool all the people all the time ba MMD and DORA Sili…. Viva Patriotic Front!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. HH means well, this young man is brilliant.What i look for in politicians in brillinace, intellegence and good judgement.Look at the analysis by HH.You know the problem in zambia is its only KK who tried to show waht development is.I wish HH would be given a chance to show case what he is saying.atleasty set a standard for all future presidents.Chiluba had nothing to show including levy, jst siongs on corruption and privatisation.

  35. UPND – THE PARTY IN DOLDRUMS!!…..NOBODY KNOWS (NOT EVEN HH HIMSELF!) WHETHER THE PARTY ISGOING FORWARD OR BACKWARDS………BUT FOR SURE, IT IS ONE PARTY THAT PROVIDES SOME POLITICAL COMEDY, SINCE THE DEMISE OF LATE CHAKOMBOKA’S MDP………..WHY CAN’T THIS GUY CALLED HH GO BACK TO HIS PROFESSION??…..HE DID BETTER THERE THAN IN POLITICS, WHERE HE IS ACTING COMLETELY USELESS…….YESTERDAY HE WAS COURTING SATA TODAY HE IS EMBRACING MMD……..MY ADVICE IS PRACTICE STANDING ON YOUR OWN TWO FEET…EVENTUALLY YOU WILL BE WEANED OFF…..MUKASUKA MUKASUMUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Masebo is not a dull lady to align herself with tribal muntus. She knows UPND and MMD are losing to Sata and even if she differed with him, she knows he is sharper than the rest. Remember she has worked with Winter Kabimba before and the past differences cannot stop the wind of change. Masebo isfor sure PPPPFFFFFF. Watch this this space.

  37. No amount of propaganda from the Pf vuvuzela Mmembe will detract HH from campaining.

    If anything, PF you are on recorded having said that Pf can win it alone, having UPND is pact was just a bonus. So lets see to that guys or gays.

    And by the way, HH is not your enemy, he wants the best for all, he means business and not the shrewed schemes of Sata and people around him.

  38. UPND has up to this day not told Zambians why he fled from tha PACT and he shall be taught a BIG lesson together with his masters MMD. Even Americans know Sata ….hhhmmm you know it bane. Viva Sata Viva PVT iwe!!!!

  39. No. 47 Iwe Dounchi Kufyona bupuba , tell Sata to go back to his profession as a constable.

    Am one of the people who have jumped on HH’s wagon, I was lost like you untill I paid attention to what the guy says. Try and listen to the way he articulates issues and then compare him to Sata. Jump on while there is still time.

  40. No. 47

    we dont need shallow thinkers like you. your comments have no substance. why do you attack a person instead of atticluting issues.

  41. Why is HH slaughtering innocent bulls everywhere he tries to hold a gathering??? Corrupt already, mama ye! But balamuseka umwaice uyu, does he know the tru Zed and what he wants? Bring it on but DONT KUBEBA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  42. As for Mushota the nature of her posts depend on where and from who she has received it. Her statements can be broadly categorised as ‘front’, ‘back’ or ‘facial’. The above all sound ‘back’ to me…..i will keep observing how the cycle changes and will let you know bloggers.

  43. Jobs no.51, my brother there were a lot of dirty schemes by PF against HH. THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD TAKE A RIDE ON HIM. A lot of things were planned, including elimination.

    You may not believe but a lot of things happen though you may not know anything.
    The people who killed the pact are Mmembe, Kabimba and Scott, they were sent by Sata himself after they convinced him that Pf can win it alone. HH is not you enemy, he means well

  44. Those are nice ideas HH. Just get prepared to be a president by 2020. This time is for RB. Viva RB Viva

  45. UPND, WHY DO YOU SPEAK YOUR ENGLISH TONGAISH?? PLEASE WE KNOW YOU ARE TOO TRIBALIST AND SO JUST USE YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE AND MAYBE SOME PEOPLE WILL CLAP FOR MORE BULLS TO BE SLAUGHTERED. WHERE IS THE TALKATIVE WILLIAM NSEKETE BANDA AND GK OF MMD?? NAFISHYUPA BANE….NIPA BWATO FYE ALL CORNERS OF OUR MOTHERLAND

  46. We are chopping the snake bit by bit and by the time we vote only he head will be remaining for burial

  47. Can some please deal with this Mushota chick. I cant believe her levels of stupidity and senselessness s except for  when she is talking about being f**cked.

  48. PF can never, ever win the forth coming election. The boat is sinking yet again. Here are the reasons:
    1. Sata is tired and sick. 2. Sata is a dimwit he knows nothing. 3. PF is campaining on a platform of popularity, which will not solve the problems that we are facing as a nation. 4. MMD has infiltrated pf strong holds and will actually share votes with PF.

    • You are cheating your self 62 have you forgotten the by election results in Mporokoso and Luapula. Today ask the people of Chienge whom they will votefor?

  49. For sure we need serious pipo in state house! Sata and Kafupi boy made me to be exile for the thing which i never thought in my life time.Voting Sata is liking pushung yourself into a Lake of fire or Hell!!

  50. NOKIA BANDA, No.57, MY BROTHER THERE IS NO NEED FOR YOU TO WASTE YOUR VOTE ON HH. HE IS LOSING TOGETHER WITH MMD. THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL. JUST THINK ABOUT IT SERIOUSLY, PROF CHIRWA WAS AND IS FOR SATA, PANJI KAUNDA IS FOR SATA AND PF AND THESE TRUE LEADERS WHERE ONCE WITH UPND BUT THEY REALISE HH CANT GO ANYWHERE. BY THE WAY MY AMERICAN FRIENDS HAVE ASKED ME TO TELL HH TO STOP LIKENING HIMESELF TO WORLD PRESIDENT OBAMA BECAUSE ITS AN INSULT TO THEM.. THINK OF YOUR LOVELY FAMILY AND WELCOME TO PATRIOTIC FRONT, YES A BETTER ZAMBIA. SATA 2011……

  51. No. 59, stop the tribal sentiments, not all of us supporting a good man a his tribesmen. Lets just debate constructively here. HH is on the move and if you cant see that, then I you are not realistic. In anycase, its our future at stake, yours and mine.

    Hey, may be you should also slaughter your monkeys, since thats all you have, monkeys!!!!

  52. Whilst am in exile,i have got nothing to boast about Zambia until i vote for my Real Change Man HH. Sata and Chiluba destroyed our nation to a point where i could not even get a piece job in my lovely country.Imagine a piece job failing to get unless you bribe the recruiter.Sad story to tell my children indeed.

  53. Manes no. 65, if Iam convinced that you are the right guy for the job and I vote for you, am only exercising my right as a voter even if you get only my vote. Its not wasting my vote, its a democracy. Wasted votes are those that are spoiled. Like it or not HH is on course and Sata will never win, mark my words. If you want, lets consult TB Joshua, a man of God.

    • Don’t bring the humble man of God into these dirty politics of Zambia, remember comandment number 7, or else.

  54. Iam a registered voter and eager to cast my vote as soon the elections are called on.I urge my fellow registered Voters/bloggers stand up for the Truth and say no to Backwardness and face East for Future!! ViV a HH,Viva UPND!! The man is really a Modern politician,hate or Love him.

  55. Replacing MMD with PF is like taking a bath but still put on the dirty underwear. If we want real change, its only HH who can provide that. 47 years after independence, why should we still have freedom fighters as leaders? Wake up!!!!!!

  56. I have been closely following HH’s rallies and his campaign mesage. The man is on the right track and I will give heim my vote. I think Sata has lost it We are better off with HH than Sata.
    By the way I was PF.

  57. Umulembwe wachipuba wapwila kuli tumfwe! Ba shikulu bantu banaka. Let the old man go and enjoy what he has worked for in his life time. Like it or not, HH means well for the country. I have decided and my vote will be his.

  58. According to the Postnewspapers, RB has endorsed HH for president, read the post of yesterday 13/06/2011 and today 14/06/2011. Viva HH, Viva UPND. The heat is on.

  59. SATA and Rupia Banda we are archiving them this year for future reference if at all there will be any need! We are prepared for New Zambia!

  60. # PINTO
    HH is not only on the right track but also in the fast lane to marry MMD what a shame, soon they will be swooped in the voltex of the mighty PF water currents. Sata we love you. Oh!! Sata come now and manifest your power, Oh!! Sata come now and manifest your power! That’s how we sing it these days; What a beautiful song.

  61. NEW ZAMBIA IS COMING SOON,WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT ,UPND MEANS BUSINESS AND FOR SURE IT WILL HAPPEN VERY SOON!!HH FOR PRESIDENT!!!

  62. Yes Masebo worked with Winter Summer Kabimba in every which way and the results are there for all to see others faint when they wait for the head of state others have to kkep rushing to south africa to recieve tandizo…indeed they worked together..as for our traditional leaders? Well most of them long learnt the art of money and not looking after their subjects and as some of them unless they are a Chief ‘benefit’ nothing the aim is to see what they cna get out of he deal after all the House of Chiefs is what it is and thier benefits are spelt out perharps Headman HH can create the House of Headmen..

  63. Ba UPND gets so excited even when HH is making very unreasonable policy statements. Most of the schools in this country are short staffed interms of teachers. Similarly most clinics and hospitals, including the UTH are short staffed and the MMD are on a spree of building more of both. It is totally impractical to come and find 16 teachers to send to this school in Chongwe without short changing another school. When I look at statements like the one I have focused on in this blog I do not want to take a risk with the inexperience of HH. I will therefore stick with my decision. VIVA PF, VIVA MCS!

  64. Does RB have a daughter for Mmembe to marry? History might repeat itself, remember how he solved the ‘share situation’ at the POST, I strongly suspect he will try the same method on the ‘debt situation’.

  65. i think alot of pipo here commenting are the supporters of HH , guys or pipo of zambia the world is looking and laughing at u, now every where in this world people are just sayings something about SATA, thus means the man himself can do better in your country, HH does not know any thing about background of Zambia, he is just SUCCESSOR of the late MAZOKA. because he is just saying something where by any one can say it nd you people of Zambia are busy saying is a good leader? denm what a Shem to the Zambian people.if leaders or university can invite MR SATA to give them speech it means they have seen some good leadership in him. ZAMBians you all SEEMS SO DULL .
    SATA IS a good leader to help poor people or bring development in the country , try to vote for him and you will all agree ,

  66. Whe sata was beating up freedom fighters on behalf of the colonial masters, HH was not yet born. Sata was invited last month to the colonial office in London for his masters to strategise on how to recolonise

  67. Tell them Mushota you are my B.I.T.C.H HH has no chance of ever being Zambia president all you Tonga tribalist go to hell, you have dreamt in tonga that HH is winning for ten years now, guess what it’s just cow dreams

  68. I don’t kn who is this mushota or mushoka…..you don’t live in zambia you are feeling good up there Let HH….be in his way…..What is Sata…? and who can be in the shoes of sata….if sata will  be a president i will never return to zambia…..so you watever name mushoka or mushota speak sense

  69. I wish many more years to u pipo who support the cobra so that when rb goes u can go thru tormenting years of eating yellow maize. the serpent knows no hoe

  70. HH KEEP IT UP. PLEASE GO TO THE PROVINCES .SATA IS A WAR PLANNER AND WE CAN NOT TAKE AWAY THAT FROM HIM.. THE IS MAN A SPY,CIA,M15,KGB,MOSAD AND OP. HE HAS THE MAP OF ZAMBIA IN HIS MONTH. BY NOW AM SURE YOU HE IS GOING AROUND THE COUNTRY AND YOU ARE STILL IN TOWN. MOVE MY MAN

  71. MMD at work. After reading the post today, I understand that MMD is using UPND to fix Masebo. This will not work. When did UPND have an interest to Chongwe people???? MMD has realised that they cannot win an election in Chongwe this year, therefore, they are using UPND to stabilise Masebo. MMD knows very well that they have no chance in Chongwe unless they go for Masebo. We will gather the people in Chongwe for a real Change. UPND is a spoiler in this year’s election.

  72. If one is looking forward to the removal of MMD, then Sata deserves the vote. If one is used to being poor then RB deserves your vote. If one is looking for change-REAL CHANGE then HH is the man. Come on guys start thinking beyond tribe, 21st century thinkers/scholars please help to develop mother Zambia

  73. LITUNGA NO.91, We are in a democracy and any one of the parties can go and campaign anywhere. UPND just went for a campaign and that has nothing to do with Masebo. I think your reasoning is too shallow on this one. MMD is a party on its own and so is UPND. In any case, Masebo will stand on upnd, mark my words.Stop crying foul, just go and campaign.

  74. LITUNGA NO.91, We are in a democracy and any one of the parties can go and campaign anywhere. UPND just went for a campaign and that has nothing to do with Masebo. I think your reasoning is too shallow on this one. MMD is a party on its own and so is UPND. In any case, Masebo will stand on upnd, mark my words.Stop crying foul, just go and campaign.

    UPND has a right to participate in the election. I can see how you people get brain washed by the likes of Kabimba. Wake up!!!1

  75. Ba no. 81, open your eyes. Sata was not invited by anyone. Bob Sichinga organised that trip and everything that took place. The whole idea was that Sata should be given some honourary degree or something. For your own information, HH was invited by the US govt, he met Obama. However, I will agree with you on one thing and that is, Sata did what he could when he had the time. I think that time is gone. The man is a grade four and his understanding of issues is limited. If you just want to remove mmd, go for him but if you want to replace mmd with a sensible govt, Sata does not suit that bill.

  76. What is wrong with you Bembas? You are the ones who tribal. The Tongas are not coz when you brought Chiluba, Southern Prov. gave him 100% and yet Mazoka lost in C/B,Northern and Luapula. Please think beyond your tribe coz you are the ones blocking good leadership.

    By the way am from N/W

  77. My Vote goes to HH, whether he wins or looses. Its a pity we wasted our time with PF pack. This time we would be on our way.

  78. PF can win it alone. Having UPND in the pact is just a bonus ( by Winter Kabimba).

    PF does not need UPND to win the election ( by the post newspaper).

    What has changed now? PF you are now crying foul!!!!

  79. My sister Mushota, that pipe you smoke at night (s.u.c.k.i.n.g or b.l.o.w job) is draining your brains. your level of madness is on increase every hour

  80. Mushota (1) have indicated that the village headmen did not go to school and should not take us
    back. So why is he pushing us to PF whos learder did not go to school? Sata never sat on a
    school desk

  81. Be careful who you vote for. A cobra, a serpent in the bible, one called Sata..N? careful, you will grind your teeth with him in hell. He knows that his days are numbered and he is busy looking around for someone to devour. Not me. I will not accept his mark, 666.

  82. For anyone in the MMD talking about ‘flip-flopping’ on the Windfall Tax.

    The goal of taxation is the collection of revenues. Right now, they mines owe the ZRA the same amount as they would under the windfall tax.

    The difference is COLLECTABILITY. The difference between a Windfall Tax on turnover/revenues and a variable profit tax, is that turnover/revenues are not in dispute, while the mines employ all kinds of tacits for not declaring their profits (like money laundering or as they call it, ‘transfer pricing’).

    When taxes are not collected, I am sure that the PF will let go of the present regime, and adopt the Windfall Tax. And for companies that even avoid reporting their revenues, nationalisation is in order.

  83. People, MUSHOTA IS CRYING! Please read “Musokotwane cautions Zambians over PF”. Finally, we have gotten rid of this b.i.t.c.h. Hope its the last time I’ll hear from you. Aren’t we all human…after all.

  84. I think HH can make the real change and Mushota just campaign quietly not insulting you in UK never know what we go through here at home

  85. Strange how the youth of nowadays would run away and hide behind old men. I would imagine if KK with 3 graduates at independence had the courage to take over Zambia instead of running back to Welensky, who are we to run away with all the instruments at our disposal.
