UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema
UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema

United Party for National Development UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has said that his party will not shield any corrupt person. In reference to the insinuations that he has vowed to defend former president Rupiah Banda from prosecution, Mr Hichilema says it is impossible for his party to defend corrupt people.

He said that it is a known fact that the UPND has never supported any corrupt activities as can be witnessed from its pronouncements. Mr. Hichilema said that corruption was a cancer that should be fought vigorously adding that the fight against graft should be comprehensive, non-selective and professionally done. He said that the UPND will not agree to be used to settle scores as this amounts to vindictiveness and abuse.

And Mr. Hichilema has said that Republican president Michael Sata’s speech dashed people’s hopes. He said that the UPND is disappointed that president Sata and the new PF government presented its vision statement that did not address some critical concerns of the Zambian people.

Mr. Hichilema has also noted with concern that the president has created new ministries and abolished some without taking the matter to parliament. He said that the president abolished the position of secretary to the treasury illegally without approval of parliament.

But yesterday parliament approved the abolition and creation of new ministries and government department.

  3. @HH No2, can you learn to be diplomatic and issue based in your writing and not just writing for the sake of it. You should learn to write things with value and purpose, things from which other people can learn something and not issuing statements based on hatred and tribalism. You should learn to value other people just in the same way you would like to be valued by other people and that is the only way you’ ll make your life richer and valuable. Don’ t insult people whom you don’ t know because the curse of God shall follow you wherever you go.

  6. HH be a man and not a baby. People of Zambia and the donor communicate have appreciated the speech of H.E MCS buy u are saying it dashed the hope of Zambians…which Zambians? your self and household including the UPND? Really now I know that you are so petty, childish and suffering from election-loss shock and depression. Please take it easy man..Sata is to rule for the next solid 5 years.

  7. It is surprising that HH has NEVER and mean NEVER said anything positive to the current government as if they never at one time shared a platform with Sata. So, that friendship was just pretense. I at times hate Politics!!!
    HH, seriously speaking you have contributed alot to the looming tension between Bembas and Tongas.Sata has been in opposition for many years and we never had this tension. This was not the case during Mazoka UPND. Sata was still in opposition that time.

  8. If you say u will not shield any corrupt person, then why do you want to form a pact with MMD. Who in MMD will allow your MPS to vote in favour of removing immunity for RB or prosecuting Kunda and Dora? be objective HH please. We are talking about politics here and not business.

  10. @pepecho suffering, whom are you trying to deceive ? Are you not the same people who used to insult the late Anderson Mazoka and called him a thief even when you had no proof ? The truth of the matter is that whenever someone who is not a Bemba forms a political party, it’ ll be called a tribal party except when a party is formed by a Bemba that is when it’ ll be called a party for every Zambia. Do you think we are too blind to see the truth which is on the ground and to be frank enough with you if this country is going to divided now or in the near future, that division is going to be caused by you the Bembas because you have a wrong mentallity that other tribes are inferior to your tribe. So be honesty about yourselves and don’ t try to hide your true colours because we know you.

  11. THATS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU DO THINGS IN A 90 DAYS RASH-DUSH ORGASMIC MANNER. HH is RIGHT SATA IN LESS 30 DAYS HAS COMMITTED ALOT OF CONSTITUTIONAL BLEACHES TO WHICH HE MUST BE CHALLENGED OR GUIDED AND WHEN HH CONDEMNS THIS PF ORGASMIC WAY OF DOING THINGS, HE IS JUST TRYING TO DO  HIS BEST SO THAT THE GUY IN STATE HOUSE IS NOT IMPEACHED OR GROUNDS OF HAVING RAPED OR ABROGATING OUR CONSTITUTION . WHAT ANNOYS ME IS WHY PF ARE SO JITTERY WHEN SOMEONE CHALLENGES THEIR ACTIONS, ANY WAY MORE DRUMMER COMING

  12. HH is a symbol of hate in the country, he is devastatingly disgruntled and he languishing in self denial. HH is not a progressive opposition leader and he does not really have a set of ideals. Because a party that affiliates itself with everyone has got no direction. HH’s qualities have been taken over by Elias Chipimo. Chipimo is the new ‘educated opposition’ and thus far, he has a plan. There is no need to oppose in the honeymoon period, oppose when key election promises are defied!

  14. Headless chicken at it again. Simple and plain statements are not valued at all. When you say he left out this and that, you must be able to elaborate fully what you think was important and left out. We really do not need more leap services from HH. He simply needs to take a break from all the shock surrounding him, he sounds tired and not sure exactly what he needs to stand for. Rest is very important after a humiliation defeat from all avenues!

  15. Go Go HH. Tell them Tongas are made of steel and will not bend on national issues just because some Bemba chaps feel threatened by quality leadership.You are trully Zambian and deserve to be heard on issues of national importance.Dont allow these Bemba thugs to mismanage our country’s affairs.The whole TONGA TRIBE is behind you.Let them support their Ka Chipimo who we hear is a HOMO.Bembas have no manners and no wonder the majority of them are thieves and are not liked by other tribes.

  16. What HH means here is that the speech did not address the issue of mining taxation which has a direct impact on the ‘more money in the individual pockets’. In their usual tribal manner they are now trying to sell Chipimo even when it is clear that HH, Milupi or Magande are far much better presidential candidates just because the latter three do not come from some province. You guys, do you thing the rest of the Zambian tribes are so dull as to fail to see through your divisive scheemes? You should understand that most of us voted for Sata just for the sake of change but deep down our hearts we support HH. We just couldn’t stand another 5 years of RB’s misrule. Come 2016 tables will change. I don’t know what HH has done to you *****s for you to keep talking about him.

  18. The tribal tag will be difficult to erase because of how he ascended to the leadership of UPND. The Post clearly documented what happened at convention, but HH decided not to condemn those that preached tribal hatred. This explains why the likes of Hon Sichinga, Dr Mulwila, the entire provincial team from Western Province, etc have all moved to PF.

  19. HH, please take a rest. Otherwise you’ll end up like Goerge Kunda, visionless and untrustworthiness. Think thoroughly before you utter a word sir! You are embarancing yourself and your supporters. Be wise and consider others as well. You are too selfish, man.

  20. I think I understand HH’s approach – keep the fire burning – let your voice be heard! I think he needs to continue speaking – but he needs to organise his ideas well. The current statements is making are actually antagonising him with the people. He needs to be systematic – to learn how to undermine PF. You see, people believe that the systems that MMD put in power are corrupt, so what SATA is doing using his presidential powers has a lot of support at the moment even from Parliament. The way to go is therefore to be analytical rather than reactive. For instance HH would have made a cost benefit analysis of reducing the size of ministries verses the actual expenditure those ministries will incur. Have we really saved the money? That kind of thinking you know!!

Even in life if you announce to people around you that you intend to drive at 160km/hr on the Luanshya – Masangano rd & b4 you jump into the car HH comes over and informs you that its not safe try to slow down & consult so you can avoid an accident becoz that road has plenty of pot holes which must first be fixed b4 you do so. Is HH doing so out of hatred or love for you? Think seriously about this one… the Kwacha is loosing value very fast & Jobs on CB are being lost. Inflation is going to go above the single digit soon with the measures being announced. Education also is going back to the days of grade 7 drop-outs!!! …………..hope we won’t soon start having coupons.

  28. Muslim brotherhood,
    I doubt the attributes you have credited to President HH. For me, he needs serious advisors who are frank and objective to tell him, he is doing more damage to his dwindling political fortues (check HH’s performance in past three election results) than good!!! If I were him, would congratulate the winner, sit down with Party, undertake complete postmoterm, map out strategy of engagement with new Government, which wins you hearts of the people and then forge on. He has lunged forward without analysis and he is not endearing himselof to the voters, they decided recently and are eager to give PF chance to deliver!!!!

  33. No president has ever changed ministerial positions before parliamentaly approval, and since the secretary to the cabinet post was an act made by parliament, then why did Sata announce to abolish it alone as an individual without parliamentaly approval. Creating a new province needs the approval of parliament and even moving provincial capital but Sata did it alone, is that not dictatorship at it’s best. All what HH pointed out is correct, only those who do not think independently can condemn him for saying the truth. Even in a house, just because you are a father and head of the house, you do not change things without consulting your wife or your family. Grow up guys, what Sata is doing is not good and the only person as at now who has guts to tell him the truth is HH.

  38. Can HH tell us what Sata left that dashed the people’s hope, may be he was expecting PF to offer him a vice presidency. The man would have been the vp but short sightedness, pride and arrogancy prevented the man. Its a pity, never in the history of Zambia had we ever had such a myopic , arrogant and self styled politician in the name of HH. The man is a danger to the country bcoz of his regionalism politics. He has tried so hard to paint all Bembas black and he accuses them of all sorts of things. Can some one term this Mpongo (Mbuzi) before he destroys Sp. Look at is it not amzing that most prominent non Tongas have left UPND. Sakwiba, Sichinga, Chisanga and recently ten leader from wp have ditched him. Let the man cry but one thing is certain he will never rule this nation.

Just shut up HH and let Mr. Sata abuse the contitution in peace. Leave Sata alone as he employs his relatives and fellow tribesmen. He is a man of action and has fired professionals at ZESCO. HH leave Sata alone its okay if he illegally abolishes the ST position and the vice president says the opposite. Sata is a man of action dont say anything if he changes the map (provinces) of Zambia without consulting. HH keep quite when we the PF are doing wrong things because you are bitter. HH you are a tribalist even though you visited almost every part of northern province you are a tribalist. HH you have K40b and bitter

    • Why do people fail to understand the perception that HH is tribal. 1. The way he ascended to UPND prez. 2. The people surrounding him (hounded out all the Bob Sichingas, Chisanga, Sikota etc and remained with the Mweetwas and Hamududus only) 3. Last three elections show he does not seem to have national appeal but Southern porovince only 4. Some of the utterances he’s made like “once you give the Bembas power ninshi kwasila they will not give it back…” No other party has had all these…Milupi, Nawakwi, Rupiah, Mazoka, Chipimo…not even Siulapwa. Hey where is Chanda Chimbwi?

HH is the fraud PF is going to govern for the next 3 terms. what is HH going to do after a fourth defeat ? Does he want the record for the real LOSER.

  49. I really do not understand why everyone has believed POST campaign to smear HH as tribal which is a lie. Someone gave the reason why HH is hated by POST and if you people do not know it is all about shares in the POST that Mmembe tried to buy off Madame Mazoka but HH being the business advisor discouraged her from selling, in the end he schemed to marry the daughter of late Mazoka but she discovered that he was a double dealer so she left. Leave HH alone PF is a dictaorial government worse than Idi Amin, now you are all seeing what KK and Chiluba were telling Zambians even the enlightened Zambians are just following a boat that they know in deep seas will one day sink.

This campaign period he danced at rallies, did side kicks at rallies to show how young he is compared to RB and sata. HH wasted energy!!!! He he he he he. Age is not what wins elections but a heart for the people, HH,learn to relate to the ordinary people of chibolya, misisi etc not where you perch your self up there “I know how to create jobs” continue creating them…..
