UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema addresses journalists

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that President Michael Sata has cheapened the status of the Zambian Presidency by constantly attacking him over the source of his wealth.

In an interview, Mr. Hichilema urged President Sata to realize that he is no longer in the opposition.

“It is rather cheap for him (President Sata) to constantly attack Hakainde. He has a job to do and let him concentrate on delivering his promises. Zambia is bigger than Hakainde,” Mr. Hichilema said.

He said it is now becoming embarrassing that every time President Sata opens his mouth, he is talking about Hakainde Hichilema.

He said it is cheapening for the President to constantly attack his opponents over flimsy grounds at the expense of national development.

Mr. Hichilema said the Director of Public Prosecutions is free to investigate the source of his wealth but raised concern over the direct interference of the Executive into the operations of the Office of the DPP.

He stated that President Sata is breaching the constitution by openly giving orders to the DPP to prosecute individuals perceived to be his political enemies.

“When we talk of a breakdown of the rule of law, this is what we are talking about. The man is openly mutilating the constitution and Zambians should rise and defend the constitution. We cannot allow this man to take us down this level. Zambians must stand up and refuse,” Mr. Hichilema said.

[pullquote]“Is it now a crime to own property in this country? The President must be thanking us for creating jobs for Zambians and encouraging others to go in that direction but he is now busy berating us.”[/pullquote]

Mr. Hichilema added that he genuinely acquired his wealth through hard work adding that this is not the first time that an inquiry is being instituted over his source of wealth.

“For me this is an old story, I have said so many times that I have worked hard for my money and anyone is free to come and investigate. This same issue rose during the Mwanawasa and Banda administrations and President Sata has been singing the same song about Hakainde’s wealth.”

“Is it now a crime to own property in this country? The President must be thanking us for creating jobs for Zambians and encouraging others to go in that direction but he is now busy berating us.”

During a swearing in ceremony at State House, President Sata instructed the DPP to explore possibilities of prosecuting Mr. Hichilema over the source of his wealth.

  1. While Sata is acting childish persuing this issue. HH needs to man up and behave like the educated guy that he is. You are both useless

    • Okay, now please help me identify which part of HH’s statement points to the contrary (of him being educated)

    • @useless Boma, you are the one who is more useless because you are failing to interpret what HH is stressing out… How does this statement call for someone to be educated? Don’t be a numpty…

    • Useless Boma you are useless as you name depicts. There is no Boma that can be obsessed by an individual and later on come and indicate that there is no opposition in the country, what double standards are these??? Sorry this president has lamentably taken this country down the drain and it is us as Zambians who will pay heavily for this stupid thinking and approach to things

    • When HH was making mula (Money) SATA Mudala was Busy ukutomba SUBA and Tresphore Mpundu’s sister and satiring a chain of Children.

      Leave HH alone. If Levy and FTJ failed to find anything on HH u SATA and a corterie of goons thinks u shall unearth what is NOT there????

      Atase…

    • Ba Sata this is now clear display of bitterness,envy, jealousy and egoism held hostage from Bwinjifumu &co.
       The road to Zambia’s social-economic progress is frequently blocked for long periods by such errors and characters whose limited minds start and end within the confines of formed Governments. Imagine Chiluba uplifted businesses and built on what KK’s industrial base left (Dunlop, Zimco, Zamefa, Serios, Lenco etc from govt parastatals into public-private partnerships or completely govt freed to modelled competitive businesses!!.
      Instead chiluba’s MMD opted to destroy, started the foundation all over again….. This road to economic stagnation taken by PF will often block for far too  long periods all the gains scored in the past decades ,errors that  PF, like UNIP will live…

    • Will live to regret….PF is scaring both foreign and local investors/ investments. PF Cheap thinking, was HH alone at Thornton during privatization? Did govt hire HH or Thornton as a company? Why hasn’t PF SATA not pursued Francis Kaunda ,shamutete, etc who benefited directly from Privatization??? This bitterness, envy and jealousy from Bwinjifumu &co Sata being held as hostage is sickening …..
      Indeed, Honesty and integrity are hallmarks for the gifted, too expensive for CHEAP PEOPLE …..Get a life,stop scaring investors!!!

      Human stupidity seems infinite in this govt …..

    • HH, IS JUST A POLITICAL FAILURE AND HE MUST JUST ACCEPT IT AND LEAVE POLITIC TO THOSE WHO DO NOT ATTEND PERIODICAL MADNESS. POLITIC IS NOT FOR FAINTHEARTED PEOPLE. THATS WHY THEY CALL HIM UNDER 5. HE HAS COMPLETELY RUINED THE PARTY AND FOLLOWING SEEM TO BE SO MYOPIC BECAUSE OF THE MONEY HE BANKROLLS THEM.

    • Useless Boma, indeed you are useless: a recluse of high dementia that qualifies you to be a retard of the level of a moron. HH is so solid and sound in his statement and all you can do is yap empties!

    • Its not cheap politics to talk about massive thefts from ordinary citizens and the same thief is aspiring for the highest office in the land.

      The president has a solemn duty to protect the national wealth from unashamed greed vultures and warn the nation of their character, integrity if any.
      All he will do is steal more and more for himself!!
      The birdbrained HH knows that he never worked for all that he has and this is so evident from his response about possible prosecution. Sata never jokes about such things

      The fact that Mwanawasa, Rupiah and now Sata all vehemently talked about it means there is need to establish the truth.

      Its NOT and WILL NEVER be a crime to own property in Zambia as long as it is legitimately acquired.

      Prove that yours is legit…end of story!!

    • Why is it that whenever Bemba’s see a rich Tonga man, they immediately suspect foul play. DO you remember that they did this very thing to Mazoka too. Sata and his chaps started calling him a cattle rustler during his days at Zambia railways. Cattle farming and crop growing are the easiest ways to become a millionaire. I know because I am one and I used these very means. Kolwestans should just start working hard and stop standing on street corners selling mishanga.

    • Surely this is rubbish, Mr Sata you promised us things that you have failed to provide. HH is not an isue here, bwana deliver as you promised. Don’t look at your friends wealth which he has worked for and use it as your campaign strategy, that’s failure. This is not your Job. HH is has contributed to your claimed 50,000 jobs in Zambia. You were once in London working as Train Plat form sweeper, if you were clever enough, you could have invested the POUNDS you came back with, this time you could have been bigger than HH. Our challenge to you is deliver , deliver your promises. Don’t be JEALOUS of your friend’s Wealth, it God who gives us the Wisdom to be what we are.

  2. HH JUST FORGET ABOUT THIS, WE DONT HAVE A PRESIDENT IN ZAMBIA THE COUNTRY IS ON AUTO PILOT
    Sata and PF flip flop lies.
    1. 90 days fake promises
    2. Fake constitution in 3months
    3.Fake small cabinet
    4.Fake Bye Election
    5. Fake Anti-corruption crusade
    6. Fake having sorted out the mealie meal shortages
    8. Fake Fake Fake everything
    9. May be even a fake President

  3. This is myopic presidency ever had in our country. How can a president be for poverty of his people against entrepreneurship and prosperity?

    • am i missing someting here? i have now gone over this short article over 10 times and still cannot identify areas which would indicated childishness and lack of education in HH’s response. i am now worried i am losing intellectual capacity to understand simple, straightforwad reports. please somebody help confirm or reassure

    • @ Chilombo, Don’t berate yourself if you are dealing with chaps who can’t tell between left and right … You are very fine my friend.

    • Viva HH you made no error for working hard it’s not a crime at all! The man’s deranged, jealous xenophobic, full hatrade for us wat a president the worst ever, very childish.

    • sata is jelousy of hh because he thinks no one can get rich without stealing goverment money by being in goverment like he did in unip then mmd and now with pf, so sata others can make money thru hard work

  4. This is why there is need for a country’s Generations to produce own leadership against forcing antiquated material to ruin it senselessly. Even China has long broken from the utopia of anti plutocrats communism. The country has drifted into private wealth ownership overdrive yet President Sata is propagating for poverty of entrepreneurs and scramble of public resources by politician Really embarrassing.

  5. SOUTH AFRICA HAD DEMANDED TO KNOW THE SOURCE OF MALEMA’S WEALTH. WHEN HE FAILED, THE GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATE WINGS WERE SET ON HIM. TODAY THE SARS OR YOU ZRA ARE INTENDING TO SEIZE HIS WEALTH.

    THIS IS NOT POLITICS OR WITCH HUNTING BUT CORRUPTION FIGHT. BWANA JUST DECLARE YOUR WEALTH. HOW DID YOU BECOME AN INSTANT MILLIONAIRE IN A CORRUPTION RIDDLED REGIME OF CHILUBA?

    PEOPLE CORRUPTLY ACQUIRE WEALTH AND FAME WHICH THEY USE TO RECRUIT HAPLESS YOUTHS TO INSULT AND UNSEAT GOVERNMENTS LIKE MALEMA TRIED TO DO.

    • typical zambian lack of originality…. always aping others without due regard to context. to you there is no difference between an orange and a banana. they are both fruits right?

    • How can you compare Malema to HH. Malema never held any private or Government position and yet tried to amass wealth. HH stayed investing and working immediately after university degree. If you have nothing to say, better keep quiet instead of exposing your ignorance.

    • @kabimba, how can you surely compare malema and HH, two different case altogether! if you are bemba and PF too sad for you poor useful id.iot, maybe you also need to go to india for a mental checkup

    • Sata and Zuma are cut from the same cloth, useless, visionless, uninspiring to their nations. Looking after their family trees … ooops forrests. So, even truble yourself to justify actions from useless leaders that we find ourselves with. Sata instead inspiring young Zambians to emulate HH and create jobs, he thinks onlt the chinese should be rich in Zambia. Useless, Yes Useless … Zambia in autopilot. To HH, man-up, head-up you are my role model, I want to create wealth for my country. Be glad you a president for an “auditor”

    • Sata and Zuma are cut from the same cloth, useless, visionless, uninspiring to their nations. Looking after their family trees … ooops forrests. So, don’t even trouble yourself to justify actions from useless leaders that we find ourselves with.

To HH, man-up, head-up you are my role model, I want to create wealth for my country. Be glad you a president for an “auditor”

    • Wise words indeed.The Hungry Hyena must explain how he got stinking rich.I dont think the president is just talking without having any facts about the hungry hyena’s wealth.Malema was boasting to have aquired his wealth through hard work but when he was investigated they found that the wealth he had was corruptly aquired.His propery has been auctioned including his cars,houses,farm,gold watch,mirrors and the guy has been declared bankrupt!!Malema used “his” wealth to sponsor his political agenda.Now he is a nobody!!The hungry hyena MUST explain how he got rich,period!!

    • Spot on why did Mwanawasa raise an issue HH there is no smoke without fire you never borrowed to start your business where is hard work tell us.Tiger WOods we know the source of his income what about you HH

    • DEMANDING TO KNOW THE SOURCE OF ONE’S WEALTHY IS NORMAL PRACTICE IN THE DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. SO, WHAT’S WRONG ABOUT DOING IT IN ZAMBIA? OF COURSE MANY PIPO KNOW WHERE HH GOT HIS WEALTHY. IT IS NOT A SECRET. SO, HE SHOULD PROVE HIMSELF IN COURT JUST LIKE ANY OTHER PERSON. LITTLE WONDER HE HAS STARTED SUPPORTING OTHER THIEVES AS HE SEEMS TO REALIZE THAT HE’S ALSO IN THEE SAME BAND WAGON OF THIEVES.

  6. We have a govt in power that is incapable of solving simple problems. Mr Sata every problem has a solution. Mr Sata you are a UNIPIST in a PF skin. In a one party context you are the man. In multi parties context your weakness comes out – man of inaction and deceit.You just set the country 50 years back.Constabo……

  7. What corruption fight imwe naimwe??? This is vitimisation, if ever I’ve seen any. It has abuse of state machinery written all over it. So what you’re telling me is that this corruption fight is selective? Why doesn’t the president ask the DPP to prosecute every single managing partner from Grant Thornton if there really is a case there. And while he’s at it, going by your logic, why doesn’t everyone who became rich under that regime get prosecuted…?

  8. IN ANY COUNTRY RICH PEOPLE LIKE CYRIL RAMAPHOSA, PATRICE MOTSEPE OF SA USE GOVERNMENT VEHICLES SUCH AS BLACK EMPOWERMENT OR INDIGESTION TO ACQUIRE WEALTH. THE PEOPLE IN THOSE COUNTRIES DO NOT SHY AWAY FROM SHARING THEIR SECRETS.

    WHICH VEHICLE DID YOU USE, SIR?

    • No need of telling you poverty stricken chaps, just keep on wallowing in poverty and misery infact by next year my wealth will quadrupal how about that.

    • The good thing here is that HH has given the go-ahead to you the PF to go ahead and find out. So why have you continued to talk about it at each presidential event which unfortunately is confined to ‘swearing in’? Just start the investigations and tell us the finding, which you should have had already by now if at all there was anything sinister!

  9. Instead of facilitating prosperity of his own people, he is shamelessly despising entrepreneurship. Is it a crime for Zambia to produce US dollar millionaires?

    Instead of spewing such mountains of drivel, Zambia and Africa needs more of Hichilema, Cyril Ramaposa, Dangotes, Uhuru Kenyatta, Folorunsho Alakija, Desmond Sacco debuts, Koos Bekker, Said Salim Bakhresa, Mansours, Naushad Merali, Mo Ibrahim, Mohamed Al-Fayed, Madhvanis, Julie Gichuru, A.R Kalan to turn poverty into opportunities for all since the 90 day mantra has lamentably failed.

  10. I think what baffles MCS is, how did HH become so wealthy without stealing? The crime here is not stealing but lying that he did not steal! To MCS, it is nearly impossible to be so wealthy as HH without stealing a dime! There is nothing wrong with stealing in Zambia, that is why you have a first” lady” unconstitutionally “given” K1.5B -with a justification that – previous administrations were not transparent!! If stealing was illegal in Zambia, the whole country will be in Jail including the arch tribalist himself Micheal Satan himself, Late Chiluba, Kapoko, GBM, The Nchito brothers, Mahtani, Miles Sampa (while at Finance Bank), Kabimba, Chungu, Mr. Kabwe, the list is endless. This country makes me sick!!!

  11. Sata is an hypocrite of the worst kind. He ordered the court to let free kapoko who had stolen money meant for poor pipo coz he funded pf while in opposition. Dpp, mmbembe, maseboa, gbm, kabimba, etc are corrupted but can’t be prosecuted coZ they are pf cadres

  12. The Guilty are always afraid – James Hadley Chase….Mr Hyena Hyena should not defend himself in the media. He knows he is not telling the truth. The President has information contrary to what Hyena Hyena is telling the nation. No wonder he is against the lifting of another plunderer Bwezani Banda’s immunity. They are birds of the same feathers. umulandu taubola. In Luanshya we welcome this message from one and only MCS…..

    • Are you not surprised that beside wada chovu you are all deformed people in
      luanshya because of poverty.i took one ka girl for a screw just
      the pant i saw made me loose the lust for sex and i could not eat
      for a week.no wonder sata easily cheated you.you are a very backward people
      and your jokes luck the humour aspect foool.ati Hakainde sunkutu kadansa
      tafiweme

    • If the president truly has information contrary to what we the ordinary Zambians know why doesn’t he share that with us? Alternatively, since you know something, share it with us so we can all be as informed as you and the presido

    • Iwe Kadansa.

      Didn’t your Ukwa instruct DPP to probe HH whilst peeping from behind the camera?? Who is talking about now?

      And in case you have never sat on a desk before, HH is saying in simple English – “go on and probe” Muchi bemba ati – “muli abakakuka uku nunshanunsha”

    • Iwe Kadansa.

      Didn’t your Ukwa instruct DPP to probe HH whilst peeping from behind the camera?? Who is talking about Media now?

      And in case you have never sat on a desk before, HH is saying in simple English – “go on and probe” Muchi bemba ati – “muli abakakuka uku nunshanunsha”

    • when u r born poor u ll die poor bt when born rich,money ll follow u even sweat for it.jst ve gud plan aswel to be rich.

  13. #6 KABIMBA: You should compare apple with apple. Malema is a grade 12 failure while HH has MBA and ACCA on top of his first degree. Malema has never held a job while HH is a partner in an accounting firm. Malema only instantly got rich after JZ became president of south africa. HH became rich while being a partner in the accounting firm. HH is over 50 years and therefore has been working over a period of time while malema is not more than 30 years. However both have something in common, their problems are POLITICAL. So your jealousiness and hate of an innocent and hard working HH is not new in this world as JESUS our lord had people of your character against him. Stop being bitter just because you have not been bessed as HH

    • Decotexx…..am so dissapointed with you by bringing JESUS CHRIS in the staeling issue of Hyena Hyena.Do u think HH has never stolen?Dont bring JESUS in such issues my friend.

  14. The monister in state house need urgent brain transplant. You were in a pact with HH in opposition and why were you not allegic to his stolen wealth. I feel sorry for this country and its costly experiments

    • His excellence wasnt allegic to hyena Hyena’s wealthy bcoz he didnt know how much this HH was worthy and he cheated.

  15. When HH was making mula (Money) SATA Mudala was Busy ukutomba SUBA, Kaseba and Tresphore Mpundu’s sister and satiring a chain of Children.

    Leave HH alone. If Levy and FTJ failed to find anything on HH u SATA and a corterie of goons thinks u shall unearth what is NOT there????

    Atase…

    • lol…….i agree. thats one problem our fathers faced. maintaining a big family plus extended families too. it hurts the pocket.

    • Iwe Paolo Sikanyo, MCS didnt know how much HH was worth? So what were investigators investigating during Chiluba time when MCS was a very close confidante of the master dribbler? Dont be naive.

  16. These are the mindsets that have set our nation back right into the 2nd Century where anything spectacular was a result of evil. It is small wonder that most of us driving simple, but brand new cars, are accused of Freemasonry (whatever that has to do with wealth anyway), Satanism, sleeping on gravestones, etc. I shudder to imagine what the real state of poverty in Zambia is. If an entire President can dwell on this trivia without first gathering all facts convincingly then we are sunk. Perceptive wrongdoers are being acquitted from courts, wrong murder suspects are being detained and released amid red-faced embarrassment, etc. It is scary indeed…

  17. @TAKING OVER

    THIS IS NOT VICTIMISATION BUT ACCOUNTABILITY, PERIOD. ANY SOUTH AFRICAN LIKE CYRIL MAPHOSA WOULD HAVE COME FORWARD, PUBLICLY AND ACCOUNTED FOR THE SOURCE OF THEIR WEALTH,

    WE HAVE HAD MDs LIKE BOTH KAUNDAS, MARK CHONAS AND NOT SIMPLE PARTNERS WHO HAVE MANAGED RICH ENTERPRISES LIKE, ZCCM ETC. NONE OF THEM BECAME INSTANT MILLIONAIRES. WERE THEY NOT SMARTER. BEAR IN MIND THAT SATA WAS IN CHILUBA’S CORRUPT REGIME, HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT.

    • What accountability are you talking about when Audit reports are ignored, to date we don’t know the results of most if not all of the commissions of inquiry, allegations of corruption and subsequent shielding by the president himself. If you really want accountability, seek it where it matters. Persecuting HH won’t get you a better more accountable government, and neither will poaching MPs.

    • I don’t seem to understand what you are saying. How many people in Zambia have ever accounted for their wealth publicly??? Why should HH do so?

  18. # Decotexx

    HH COULD CUT THE STORY SHORT BY SIMPLY INFORMING THOSE CURIOUS MINDS WHICH VEHICLE HE USED TO ACQUIRE SUCH MASSIVE WEALTH WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

    WE HAVE KIDS WHO WANT TO USE HIM AS ROLE MODEL AND NOT AS A MAFIA BOSS.

    • Why are you the only ones who are curious? OK what if he told you that he used witchcraft, is that supposed to make you or me feel better? Get serous you F*kn F**l on this one you have failed. For me you have just given HH one more vote agalu aciwewe inu blaidemmet bati. “Zambia is bigger than HH.” So why do you want to fill our minds with him when we should be worrying of how to erradicate hunger wecipuba iwe? Are you going to use HH’s money? Grow up MCYako!

    • HH does not owe anyone an explanation. Sata has HH’s accounts he can see there is nothing sinister hence just talk.

    • @ Kibimba,i feel for you shallow mind.Why isnt MCS following up on GBM,Goodward Mulubwa,Kavindele and other Zambians who are rich.Why zoom in one person..the country keeps going backwards and it is saddening.THis country has plenty rich guys but i have not heard the president question the sources of their wealth.

  19. @kabimba… why not investigate sata also, having worked all that long in his life, way back to the colonial time including cleaning toilets in london and he has is a gun to his name.. don´t you see that there is something wrong with such a life to be investigated?

    • yeah this will be a case study for the young ones on what not to do to avoid a wasted working life,,,,,, 40 years of labouring and all you can show for it is 7 guns? God forbido

    • oh yeah, that explains why the man finds it so hard to believe that anyone can acquire so much much wealth in a short space of time. in his 40 years 7 guns universe,,, this is unfathomable

  20. Sata the accuser of brothers.

    Revelation 12 vs 10 & 11

    10 And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.

    11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul to the death.

    • @DJ, is your complete name DJ Ironic by any chance?? After calling people siding with HH, stars, you go back and end by talking about the innequality, which HH is clearly at the receiving end of (breaking it down to your level)… Genius!

    • @ CHILOMBO, thanks for taking the words right out of my mouth. That’s where the problem is, far too many Zambians think in this particular way, that’s why the president utters such statements, because he dwells on the ignorance of such people.

    • DJ GO WORK HARD YOU BE IN HH’S CLASS, STOP MAKING USELESS EXCUSES IN LIFE, IF YOU BUILD WEALTH, YOU WILL BE RICH PERIOD. YOU HAVE OPPORTUNITY GO BUY STOCKS ON LSE, BUY CATTLE, TILL THE LAND, THATS WEALTH BUT YOU BROTHERS FROM THE NORTH THINK TO NTEMBA IS WEALTH.

    • chilombo – really? In fact kateka (with a single ‘e’) could easily be translated to ‘rat’, or ‘rodent’… kateeka is the correct one for leader – and no, it is not from ‘care taker’ but from someone who ‘settles’ something (hence, ‘ukuteeka’, or ‘to settle down, or rule’). Intonation and pronunciation is everything in most vernaculars…

  21. Ba HH kulandafye uko mwafumishe icuma. Simple enquiry needs simple response. If your fees were good during privatisation say so. Did you inherit anything….let the zambians know. There’s nothing wrong in asking

    • Mwamab……really good question.Let him answer simple questions “how and where did he get his wealthy?” Its just as simple as that.

    • i would say non of your business,,,, and if your ukwa really wants to know why not simply institute investigations quietly, he has all the investigative agencies at his disposal. you have to publicly passed the guilty verdict the gone on to ask for the court process? something wrong here

    • none of your business for sure! I’m being to think HH is actually a very good citizen, first of all his accounts are meddled with, then he is ridiculed for having wealth, which in turn is taking care of a lot of Zambians as he is an employer, then he is told to explain where he amassed so much wealth! And by none other than the President honestly.

    • SATA WAS IN MMD BY THE WAY MWAMBA DO YOU GUYS USE YOUR BRAINS FOR THINKING OR GROW HAIR? IF THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WE CUD HAVE HEARD IT LONG TIME, HH IS A HARD SMART ZAMBIAN PERIOD.

    • I respect all the different views aired by each and every person.What bothers me is why all of u people are asking for the answer when it is right in the article.The Guy HH jst put it straight and clear HE WORKED HARD for the Wealth.If u need to ask what kind of work he did .My answer is one he went to University to studyand hes invested it being buisness minded and that what happens when u ivest.so whats wrong with that.Please stop behaving like u are in opposition when u are is government President Sata.,

  22. @DOBO

    WE HAVE KIDS WHO WANT TO USE PEOPLE LIKE MILLIONAIRE Patrice Motsepe, OWNER OF SUNDOWN FOOTBALL CLUB AND NOW A MINING MAGNET AS AS A ROLE MODELS.

    HIS PATH TO RICHES IS SO CLEAN = BLACK EMPOWERMENT. GOVERNMENT GAVE HIM MASSIVE LOAN/CAPITAL WHICH, USING BY HIS BRAINS, HE MULTIPLIED.

    • @kabimba… hahahahah, you donot know what you are talking about! shut the fcuk up! motsepe`s money is blood and tears of poor south africans. When new south africa came in, there is a group of afew balck south africans who became rich rich instantly, mostepe is one of them. They `sold`south africa to the whites again (bussines wise), thats why partly whites still control a big portion of bussines in RSA today.
      Thats also why nationalisation can never happen in south africa!

    • was the minister of mines and mineral resources, a sister to Motsepe and is Jeff Radebe the current Minister of Justice a brother in law to Motsepe /If the above is true, then even somebody like me would not have gone.

  23. This Hyena Hyena chap is afraid and we will surely investigate him.the boy is biitter and has no respect for elders.
    Just look at his face……the bitterness can easily be seen.Hyena Hyena will never ruleeee!!!

  24. HH (Zambia’s in coming president) we as PF are making way for you and our President is campaigning on your behalf so do not worry its only a matter of time when shall be handing over power because we have failed the people of Zambia and they know it.

  25. Sata is the only known jealousy president in the world. He moved RDA to state house to make some money for his family but that is not enough. HH’s wealth hurts him so much still.

  26. I think Sata must be toppled by any means before the end of his term. They guy is irrelevant t even himself.

    I wonder how kaseba finds living with this lunatic. The old experienced political fooooooool has no value of any kind. CNP indeed

    • don’t agree with this. no need to be extreme because you liable to gho on the slippery slope. besides it will be giving ukwa the easy way out. let him stress and suffer with the weight of being a failure! that will be enough punishment. we will also be suffer in the process,,,, but then maybe we deserve it, having created the situation ourselves

    • MilesGBMSatan, I think I have met your type before – the sort that giggle uncontrollably when they are in the presence of the person they speak ill of behind the scenes… straighten up and leave extremism to the ignoramuses – we have a set way of getting rid of leaders than by “any means before the end of his term…”

  27. Poverty mentality, any one who has money has stolen, Sata the champion who has been busy spending money on women and wiring children throughout the country now sees it. Fit to demonize people who have worked hard to earn their money. Ask data about the private account he created and deposited city of Lusaka council cash when he was Lusaka governor. Talk of third term, talk of the pact with hh’s upnd. The educated hh did not spend his money on a useless pact. The American presidents don’t waste their time on the billionaires in their country but our poverty stricken immoral president. Wastes time on people that have worked hard to create employment.

  28. This is very frustrating, how do we live in a country where energy is so deliberately scattered so no real results are forged? Why is everyone not next to Sata evil and only him and his are pure? Why is he deaf to the questions people are actually asking and want resolved, like the acquittal of Kapoko and Miti, clearance of Kabimba and GBM, Nchito and his team, the Kr 18m that I believe is still owed to DBZ, and many more pertinent issues ranging from fuel supply and distribution to maize and fertilizer. Youth Switch on!!!!You are not being led this is……….. stuff meant for Arkam Asylum (if you catch my drift) And it is in plot 1, Kaya.

  29. Mealie meal shortage. Power black out. Late delivery of farming inputs. No constitution after 1.5 years in power. Youth unemployment. Cholera outbreaks. Dirty streets. High level police brutality. End of Thinking Capacity.

  30. As of July, 2009, Mutembo Nchito and Fred Mmembe already owed a total of US $28.9 million dollars to DBZ, Finance Bank, Investment Bank, ZRA, National Airports among other public institution. The debt excluded interest that would otherwise have been paid by any other law abiding borrower. Only the DBZ debt has been highlighted to the public mainly for DBZ’s decision to take the duo to court. Now look at how rotten the DPP’s profile is to, who should investigate who? Let them pay what they owe first before witch hunting HH.

  31. HH MUST GIVE ACCOUNT OF HIS WEALTH AND PROVE THOSE SUSPECTING HIM. IF CLEAN SO B IT.IF NOT LET THE LAW TAKE ITS CAUSE. I VOTED 4 SATA TO COME PUT THE CULTURE OF NATIONAL PLUNDER IN PAST ,PRESENT AND FUTURE THOUGH A LOT HAS NOT YET BEEN DONE.

  32. What law taking its course you fosholo busy shoving manure in my face, just because you voted for the man does not make his every decision correct or in the least rational. You have a corrupt DPP minister of Justice, defence,home affairs, information, tourism, you name it! And corruption does not always mean stealing money, it means lack of integrity, and 80% of this PF government has the integrity of sandstone. Let HH be for prosecuting him will never put food on anyone’s plate but the job seekers who will conduct these so called “investigations”

  33. @kabimba and Canio
    It looks like you are sycophants and indeed useful *****s. When is PF going to deliver on its promises? Let’s use these blog sites to constructively advise government and not sugar coat. They (PF) promised a lot of things but have they delivered or have they started doing that coz what we hear and see are bye election after bye election, politicking and lying. When are we as Zambians going to make political leaders as our employees and not employers?

    • My bro’,these two misfits are on kabimba’s payroll.they don’t like it and are deply embarassed but they have no option.poverty dictates their lives

  34. I VOTED 4 SATA TO COME AND PUT TO AN END PLUNDER OF UR N/WEALTH .RIGHT AS WE WRITE DE *****S ARE STEALING. ZEDIANS U ARE THIEVES. IT IS A CULTURE. IF 1 DAY I HERE DAT HH AT 1 POINT STO I CAN’T B SUPRISED. SO NO SANE PERSON SHOULD W/SHIP THIEVES.

  35. MOST BLOGGERS WERE NOT BORN THEN WHEN FAT CATTLE IMPORTED FROM BOTSWANA WERE SWAPPED WITH LEAN TONGA CATTLE ON RAILWAY WAGONS WHILST IN-TRANST TO LUSAKA. BUT THE EVER NO NONSENSE KK WAS QUICK TO CORNER THE MAFIA BOSSES.

    SURELY IF CALLS FOR HH TO ACCOUNT ARE NOTHING WHY IS HE MAKING AN ISSUE OUT OF NOTHING? WHY IS HE, LIKE RB, ARE SO RELUCTANT? JUST DECLARE AND SHAME SATA. FINITO..

    • The last I checked HH didn’t have any immunity. Its now up to Sata and his minions to provide evident of theft and stop singing this ‘HH stole’ song and come up with something concrete. Publishing someone’s assets and bank details proves nada!

      And get to work while you’re at it.. people aren’t going to eat HH or Mumba’s hair.

  36. @NKWAZI,U MUST B ONE OF THESE ROTTEN ZAMBIANS. WORSHIPERS OF CORRUPT PIPO. IT IS UNFORTUNATE SATA HAS BEEN KIND WITH U DEMONS. HOW I WISH CORRUPT ONES CAN B FOUGHT WITH MORE VIGOR.CAN THESE DEMONS B DEALT WITH ONCE AND 4 ALL PLEASE!

    • Fosek, So Give me a list of non corrupt leaders and I will show you a buffoon.What I am saying is that: Average hard working Zambians don’t care for HH’s wealth for we aspire to it, you are the people who do not believe in the ability of a black man to be as rich as a muzungu, to you I say gettout! What is Zambia going to gain from PERSECUTING people like HH while the ones whose corrupt practices are rubbing their scrotal sack in our faces! You wasting my time by forcing me to respond to you is another thing that just……

    • you sir, mr osmore sound like a guy i who came to fix something on the property i am developing in zambia. he was so upset with me for putting up an unnecessarily big house for his liking. ‘ why muna panga chinyumba chikulu so? muli na bana ba ngati?olo muzungu si anga pange chinyumba chikulu so,,’ he said. so to him, muzungu is the yard stick

    • Neither of you two clowns understand!! I don’t care!!!!!! Everyday you are being robbed blind by the mines banks and other multi-nationals and HH is a problem? get serious. I am happy he stole because he has the presence of mind to multiply and grow what he has! Why go after HH and not Kabimba or GBM or Nchito himself? HH does not owe the DBZ and ultimately the people of Zambia Kr MILLIONS. The man has solid financials with a track record backed up with very evident business acumen. Why not go after the obvious criminals? I am emotional because you and Sata want to kill a mosquito with a Bazuka round when it will not add any value to your country! You want to budget Zambia’s future on HH’s wealth?!?! Don’t be ridiculous!

  37. Ba hakainde Mwaliaba chabe. Why not explain how you were bankrolled to have that kind of cash? When you live in a glass house don’t throw stones. The People of Luanshya who died as a result of thieving during privitization in which you participated actively are turning in their graves. Until justice is done tapali ichobe.

  38. LT have you been bought by Watchgalu? Why are you moderating benign postings while you are allowing insults against the President?

  39. @Chikwanda

    MY ETIQUETTE, EDUCATION AND MY FAMILY CULTURE GO BEYOND TRADING CHEAP INSULTS BUT
    TO ENGAGE IN CLEAN DEBATES. IF SOMEONE IS ACCUSING ME OF SLEEPING WITH HIS WIFE WHY SHOULD I NOT PROVIDE HIM WITH A STRONG COUNTER EVIDENCE COMPLETE WITH ALIBIS?

    WHAT IS SO SACRED AROUND YOUR LEADER’S WEALTH WHEN HIS COUNTER PARTS IN SA ARE SO OPEN ABOUT IT?

    • you seem so taken by south africa,,,, do not know if you live there, but having been there for 15 years, i do not unfortunately, share your impressions

    • Me neither – this reminds me of a recent so-called recent unam graduate who was asking that we become like Namibia by relying on locally produced fruit. Having lived in Namibia (not as a student) I kept gasping at the gaping lies of this poor individual on national TV…

    • @ chilombo you economic refugee in S.A why should you be bothered when everyone would like to know how our brother HH acquired all this money? Bill Gates is one of the richest in the world and it is justifiable how he accrued his money and currently everyone is running to Microsoft which has being selling so fast worldwide.Now the cows can not make you or earn that kind of money just explain what happened when you were in charge of privatization @ LIMA BANK,LINTICO and ROAN MINE in luanshya.ALL the sudden you became RICH HOW?

  40. I find this incredible. Sata was in power when HH’s form was hired to privatise. Lvey too was in power. Now if HH stole as alleged, why did both Levy and Sata want to work with him. Levy even offered him the Vice position. And Sata would perhaps have done the same if the Pact had not grumbled. I wonder, again, if HH has something to hide or protect as is the case with Mmembe, would he have opted to stay in the opposition? Can someone help my logic?

    • No he has nothing to hide! Government is based on ideology and programmes. You have to agree with the other person’s agenda for you to join his or her govt. Only unprincipled people would join a govt whose programmes they dont agree with. A good example are the MPs who are moving from party to party. THese are empty vessels who have no guiding ideology or programmes they swear by. They are in politics to look after themselves.

  41. @JUDGE CHIKOPO

    SATA WAS NEVER IN POWER UNTIL LAST YEAR. THE CORRUPT CHILUBA WAS CALLING THE SHOTS. LEVY WAS INSTALLED BY CHILUBA. HE IMMEDIATELY STARTED PLAYING SELECTIVE POLITICS – IN AN ATTEMPT TO BE A MAN OF HIS OWN, HE HURRIEDLY TRIED TO SILENCE CHILUBA’S CONSTITUENTS AND HIS BIGGER CONSTITUENCY.

    IMAGINE IF LEVY HAD TOUCHED HH THEN! HE COULD HAVE LOST SOUTHERN PROVINCE AND CHILUBA’S PROVINCES. SATA IS A NO NONSENSE MAN. EVEN HIS CHILDREN WILL BE MADE TO ACCOUNT…

    • We are waiting to see his “no nonsense” character. I have no hope in Sata and the entire PF. My family and I wasted our votes by voting for PF and Sata. I regret it every single day.

  42. THE PRESIDENT CAN’T B BRINGING THIS ISSUE OUT 0 THE TIME ,THE TRUTH IS THERE. THE SADEST PART IS THAT EVEN THOSE 2 INVESTIGATION ARE CORRUPT .WAT A COUNTRY? I HAVE NEVER LIVED OUT OF THIS PLANET. ZAMBIANS U’RE ROTTEN ESPECIALLY THE EDUCATED ONES.

    • looks like you have it in for the ‘ educated ones’. and this is wherein lies the problem; keep the population uneducated and uninformed so that they will always outnumber the educated and informed ones. and you all know how this will translate during elections?

    • @osmore…. don`t you see that there is something wrong with your sata?,, the man worked for 50yrs plus in his life, including kuyola matuvi in londons toilets. And he only ends up with 7 ngongodela guns to his name. this does not make sense, the man is sick in the head.

  43. sata was born when his mother tried to jump over the stream.since his mother didn’t wear a pant,sata just droped from his mother’s hole.

    • These insults befit you too, also its amazing that u are talking of a pant to prevent birth?? stupid fool, respect yourself, if you have nothing to contribute on this blog keep quiet

    • Ganja…..This is exactly how you were born.Bcoz if one didnt born like u have put it,then one cannot tell the other individual such.Tell us,is this how you were born?

    • please don’t blame me.i grew up with sata and we used to smoke together in mutendere.ask charles his former diriver.i know what iam talking about.

  44. Hakainde Hichilema is just like other rich elements in zambian context, he is not special, also the money he has is not so much a talk, people have more money in the diaspora than HH , so ba Boss just leave the boy alone.

  45. Sorry lads, the fact is HH is corrupt. And no one from my Chiefdoms will give him vote. He will talk but he will always be an Oginga Oginga. Period.

  46. I MENT DOSE 2 INVESTIGATE.@NKWAZI, YO BRAIN IS SMALL.IF YO SMALL GOD IS CALLED TO GIVE ACCOUNT OF WHATEVER HE OWNS THAT IS NOT PESECUTION.I AM SURE IN DIS COUNTRY DERE PIPO DAT RE EVEN RICHER DAN HH. WAT KIND OF PIPO WHO WANT THIEVES 2 GO UNTOUCHED?

    • OK guys, you wan to take me on? Bring it. Answer me this, by persecuting HH, what do you hope to gain? Just because he is rich, is it also a given that he stole? even if he did, how much of whose money did he steal and where did he take it? Yes I have a small brain. But mine is a smart phone to your basic Casio calculator. Instead of talking of economics and education, growth projections and Zambian innovations, you are busy pointing at HH. When are you going to work yourself? If we find that HH stole today, where is that money going to go? Mwanawasa’s task force spent more money that they retrieved, how much do you think you’ll make from chasing HH? I ask again, what value are you adding?

    • KnK is that the new acronym for Patriotic Front, PF, [Pathetic Failures] sounds catchy.

      My concern is the fact that the DPP is openly being instructed to go after individuals by the President of the country . He is openly defiant of the constitution he swore to uphold. These are valid reasons for the Prez to be impeached.

      And we don’t get any comments from the DPP to confirm his independence or the lack thereof.

      Sad , who is running mother Zambia??

  47. When the Head of state decrees and dares the DPP to use,create,force and enforce a law on a political opponent and a citizen of Zambia ,whose private wealth and fortunes are paraded by the same Head of State with the aim of inducing public ridicule,it is emotionally traumatizing and unfair and unjust that Mr Hichilema or any zambian for that matter to be charged with all sorts of trumped-Up breaches of the law and these Laws are written and cemented into the Laws of the county under a presidential decree and are designed to appear fair on the surface whilst in reality they are supping out natural and fair justice that every Zambian is entitled to enjoy.

  48. DE PROBLEM IS DE PRESIDO MAY HAVE DAT WILL POWER TO FIGHT CORRUPTION.BUT HE MAY B ALONE IN IT 4 ZAMBIANS ARE THIEVES. WE WANT GREAT ENTERPRISING ZAMBIANS BUT NOT WITH QUESTIONABLE SOURCES. CAN 0 DOSE RESPONSIBLE DO DERE JOB OF PUNISHING CROOKS .

  49. Much has been said on this forum but no one is finding the answer, Though foolish, the President is right on this one, Guys, why cant HH just tell the Nation how he acquired his riches so that we are all in the know and maybe learn one or two things from him. HH tell us we also want to be rich like you bwana…..

    • @kwena

      You moron, he has just told you. it is simple, hard work is the answer. If you cant get that then you have no hope…

  50. It is said the guite is always afraid….if HH is a clean chap let him openly say he can be investigated…we understand his claims of being hardworking but we deserve to know what formular he used…and how he started his business…

  51. Sata was busy cleaning shoes in railway station in the UK while HH was acquiring education….they come back here the same sata was busy screwing every skirt while HH was making money and today u want to doubt why the young man has mula than you……….u are luck to have not gotten AIDS ka mudala all your friends are rotting in graves due to kutomba

    • Iwe what nonsense are you spewing? Sata lived in the colonial era where education was as scarce as diamonds. HH is a baby who was born in Zambia when KK gave everyone free education so your comparison lacks proper rationale

  52. When u have an empty head, i just wonder what kind of noise would come from the rest of the Body….Typical PF

  53. Sata concentrate on creating jobs for Zambians not attacking opposition leaders.You have forgotten that you being victimised when you were in opposition made be vote for you.Now you are turning our sympathy to HH.You’ll have yourself to blame.WE Zambians gave you a chance to rule but now you’re busy fighting individuals, shame.

    • You never voted for SATA…u voted for HH who dissapointed u by lamentably failing.HH has been decreasing in the number of voters every yr we have elections.

  54. @ Admin What have you done again? I guess it was getting too personal and should probably thank you. But I wish there was an easier way of convincing my fellow youth that we are never going to get anywhere if all we want to do is look back at what someone did or might have done. It is not fair for the president to be causing this commotion over such small issues. Zambia is bigger than HH, let us focus on Zambia not HH, Mumba, or even Sata himself.
    Happy Youth day!

    • No…no…no…my friend!! Umulandu taubola.If HH is innocent,let him come openly to tell the nation how he aquired his wealthy.Wats wrong with that? Thats all wat we need.

    • But why should it be the president to instruct who should be investigated? When was there ever a mulandu raised?Again I ask what will we gain from all this? You want to know how HH got so rich? Brains. Why do you want to bring fake allegations with no proper use or consequence except political assassination. Be fair to my children that are only a year old, give them a chance to play with toys and video games because today our focus was building a prosperous future for Zambia.

    • Zambia is bigger than individuals I agree but thieves can destroy a big nation so if anyone has stolen we should be on him like a flea on a dog

    • So you are already calling him a thief now? On what grounds? Why do you not apply the same criteria to all your current leaders especially the ones in power. Dogs don’t really do a good job of removing fleas. This is more like poisoning your neighbours healthy ox simply because it looked better and worked hard in the field. I can’t wait for the 50+1 law to be passed. Something tells me it won’t happen before the next elections. We can only hope.

  55. Kwena mulatukana bane, is this what we are teaching our children? we cant be civilised and debate like people from the 21st centuary. The fact that we differ should not make us act like we are from the stone age.

  56. DEAR EDITOR,

    FELLOW ZAMBIANS CAN YOU ENGAGE ME IN A LIVELY DEBATE ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT’S DESIRE 4 HH TO DECLARE THE SOURCE OF HIS WEALTH. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATA & OBAMA. JUST BEFORE THE US ELECTIONS LAST YEAR, OBAMA HAD DEMANDED OF MITT ROMNEY TO DECLARE HIS TAX RETURNS BACKDATED 10 YEARS EARLIER. ROMNEY KNEW THE TRICK. HE KNEW THAT THROUGH THOSE DECLARATIONS TO THE TAX MAN WHO REPORTS TO OBAMA, THE PRESIDENT WAS GOING TO EXPOSE HIM. IF HH WAS DECLARING HIS TAX RETURNS TO ZRA FAITHFULLY, ZRA OR ANYONE WOULD HAVE EASILY EXPOSED HIM. THE FACT IS HH IS CORRUPT AND HIDES HIS ASSETS FROM ZRA OTHERWISE THERE WOULD BE NO CALLS FOR ZANACO’S NECK COST ZRA COULD HAVE ALREADY CAPTURED THAT INFORMATION BY NOW.

    • We have engaged u plz expose the chap to the bone…His stinking wealth is smelling corruption and pilfering…HH we need to know who u are and how u made that money…u came on scene taking advantage of mazoka’s death…who are u and how did make that stinking money?..if possible demonstrate how u store

  57. HH is right by saying that President Sata is Cheapening the Presidency by constantly attack his opponents over flimsy grounds at the expense of national development.If he has evidence let him provide it and we move on.HH is right to remind him that he is no longer in the opposition. The opposition should be very careful to Sata’s tactics, in that he expects that when he sings, they have to dance to his tune.

  58. HH AND SATA ITS TIME TO GROW YOU GUYS YOU ARE TOO CHILDISH THINK ABOUT THE POOR PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA COME ON PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING LIKE HELL YOU GUYS YOU ARE BUSY TALKING TRASH EVERY DAY PLEASE REFRAIN AND DO SOMETHING PROGRESIVE FOR THE MOTHER ZAMBIA,MR SATA ITS TIME TO GROW NO MORE STUPID JOKES YOU ARE A LEADER OF THE COUNTRY NOT A MAYOR OF LUSAKA AND YOU TOO HH TELL THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA ABOUT YOUR MANIFESTO INSTEAD OF WAISTING YOUR TIME GOING TO PRESS MAKING STUPID STATEMMENT AND SPENDING TIME IN POLICE CUSTODY…ITS TIME TO WORK AS A TIME COME SE HOW THE OBAMA ADMNISTRATION HOW THEY ARE WORKING WITH THE REPUBLICAN THEN YOU GUYS YOU WILL LEARN A GOOD LESSON TO GOVERN THE COUNTRY.I PUT YOU IN PRAYERS TO CHANGE EVEN STOP TALKING ABOUT RB FOR ACC THAT IS WAISTING OF TIME.

  59. The next President for Zambia in 2016 is a PF candidate but notice the P is silent.

  60. HOW DID OBAMA KNOW ABOUT MITT ROMNEY’S HIDDDEN OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS AND CHALLENGED HIM TO DECLARE HIS TAX RETURNS? OF-COURSE USARA HAD INFORMED HIM. THE FACT THAT MITT RPMNEY DID NOT HAVE READILY VAILABLE TAX RECORDS MEANT THAT THE GUY WAS DISHONESTY AND CORRUPT. HE FAILED THE TEST AT THE BALLOT BOX AND PAID DEARLY. ROMNEY’S RELUCTANCE COST HIM THE VOTE. HH KNOWS THAT HIS WEALTH HAS BEEN IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN FOR QUITE SOMETIME. WHY CANT HE PUT THE RECORD STRAIGHT?

  61. @chibusa

    I agree with HH and his cadres because even Mitt Romney also cried foul play when Obama challenged him to produce his tax returns. They were wishing that the issue would simply die away.

  62. the problem is in the manner of investigations, If HH had been a quiet Opposition Leader, and not saying anything against the PF govt, then this wouldn’t have come up!!!!! My problem is the president himself is not being GENUINE in all this, and its rather disappointing.

  63. Mr Sata seems to have forgotten what Zambians expect of him as president. Since taking over all he has done is renaming airports, appointments based on one tribe, weekly swearing-in ceremonies during which he displays his envy of HH’s wealth and RB’s high profile global engagements. Why is he afraid of addressing press conferences where he can respond to questions on real issues?
    The people are saying they do not want a rebirth of UNIP and the one party dictatorship.
    The persistent shortages and overpriced mealie meal and many more issues we read about everyday need to be addressed by him.

  64. What’s Sata’s Net worth if i may ask? I’m pretty sure its less that 5% of HH’s. Admire the fact that HH is a Humble man even though he has great wealth. Why not elect him as president and see how he will develop this country.

    • Politics is not an experiment. We vote for those we are sure will deliver not to see if so and so can be bettr alternative

    • @zingimele ndwi

      Success starts from within the House. The bible says the He that is trusted with little thing can also be trusted with big things. HH has proved to us that he has the ability to succeed and develop wealth and that’s what our country needs right now. Sata’s background wasn’t a bright one, neither is his present, I wonder what the people who voted for him saw in him, now they regret . Zambia as a developing country needs a business minded person if it really wants to develop.

  65. CNP presidednt was in a pact with HH, why didnt he expose him then, he wanted to ride on the young man’s resources for campaigns! he is such a chiimbwi no plan for real!!! and all of you Zambians that cast your v0otes for thios shameless dictor you are cursed for not using your brains well- it has cost us a lot to have a family tree in govnt!

    • No it was the other way round. HH wanted to ride on Sata’s popularity. Sata proved it be going on solo to win the election with HH a distant third

    • No it was the other way round. HH wanted to ride on Sata’s popularity. Sata proved it by going on solo to win the election with HH a distant third. And stop insulting us for voting the man into power. Just conctrate on telling HH how to appeal to the whole nation-Thats what politics are for

  66. @MONEY TALKS

    OBAMA WAS WORTH 1% OF ANY US MILLIONAIRE AT THE TIME HE TOOK OFFICE. OBAMA WAS A MERE COMMUNITY WORKER. HE HAD THE LOVE OF HIS PEOPLE. IF HH IS THAT RICH WHY HAS HE NOT PROVIDED SOLAR ELECTRICITY AND DUG WELLS FOR HIS HOMESTEAD.

    THE FELLOW IS DAMN STINGY. NOT WONDER HIS PEOPLE ARE NOT EVEN RAISING A VOICE SAVE FOR A FEW WHO ARE ON HIS PAYROLL.

  67. The Romney analogy is wrongly used here as It does not apply to HH. Obama did not ask the justice Department to investigate Romey about how the latter acquired wealth. He simply ask him to declare tax returns for the last 10 years as a political strategy. Obama’s aim was to try to show that Romney was out of touch of the common man. Corruption and dishonesty do not apply here.
    This is different from what Sata is doing. The man is a dictator who wants to control people’s lives.

  68. WHEN MR HH WAS TAKING OVER UPND,HE HELD PRESS BRIEFING AT MULUNGUSHI CON. CENTRE WHERE HE GAVE US HIS CV TO PROVE TO THOSE WHO WHERE DOUBTING HIS LEADERSHIP OF UPND. I FEEL EVEN NOW HE CAN DO THE SAME TO SHOW HOW MANAGED TO GET HIS WEALTH.

  69. Hullo mwema lawyers twebeniko and Iam serious. What will be the charge? Being stinking rich? Or Being stinking rich and a political pest?

  70. Rubbish & attar childishness. The president should not down grade himself in to such. The man has worked hard so what? IT’s HIS MONEY. THIS BRING HIM DOWN syndrome is a Killer in our Country. SHAME ON OUR LEADERS.

  71. @THE PRINCE

    Worked hard? Who has not?

    Ask Obama why he asked Romney to account? You can work hard but your tax returns could still reflect zero. Sata could have been the first person to commend the fellow if HH’s tax returns were anything to talk about. If HH had been up to date with tax even Levy could have traced HH’s wealth. Sata is serious. Plunderers must account to the people.

    • WHAT ABOUT HIM?? DID BA SATA DECLARE HIS ASSETS??? WHO HAS QUESTIONED HIM ON HIS HOUSES HE AQUIRED WHEN HE WAS IN THE COUNCIL?? LET THE PRESIDENT LEAD BY EXAMPLE AND TELL ZAMBIANS source of his Houses as well.
      TAX RETURNS AND WEALTH ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT TOPICS. I DON’T SUPPORT HH,BUT FEEL THE PRESIDENT IS GOT IT ALLL WRONG. WHY SHOULD HE INFLUENCE THE JUDICIALLY SYSTEM OF OUR COUNTRY AS TO WHO SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED??

      Get facts right @KABIMBA mwila supportor amafi.

  72. WHY SHOULD IT TAKE A HEAD OF STATE LIKE OBAMA TO ASK A CITIZEN TO ACCOUNT FOR THE SOURCE OF THEIR WEALTH WHEN THEY COULD HAVE EASILY TRACED IT THROUGH TAX RETURNS?

    THE TRUTH IS PEOPLE LIKE HH, ROMNEY ETC DO NOT PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAX. THEIR TAXES DON’T SIMPLY ADD UP WHICH MAKES IT DOUBLY DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE TO TRACE THE FLOW OF THEIR INCOME. HH HIDES LIKE HIS MENTOR, CHILUBA, THE DRIBBLER. ITS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH SOME MYTH OF HARD WORK.

  73. Please people torn down your language. If displeases me is those who comment bases on ones tribal inclination. One Zambia one nation should prevail at all cost.

  74. More jobs ,lower tax,more money in the pocket that is what we are waiting for
    Fulfil the promises Bwana not attacking people employers like HH.
    For argument sake if we had 100,000 Zambians with money like HH employing young Zambians it can easy your work of providing jobs as President.
    Don’t be jealous but appreciate he has employed Zambians
    you also create jobs kabili as you promised.

  75. I agree with Kabimba. Why is Sata investigating HH now? Does Sata need someone else to investigate for him when he has all the tax returns records for everyone in the country? What has ZRA been doing all these years? What was Levy or RB doing? ZRA could, without effort, have traced HH’s wealth like Zuma did in South Africa with Malema, and like Obama cornered Romney.

    I can only suspect that the young man like Romney has been dribbling the tax office. Sata may be serious after all with ridding our country of the scourge of money laundering, fraud and corruption.

  76. ZAMBIA HAS BEEN A UNIQUE COUNTRY WHERE A FORMER SPORTS MINISTER , CHIPUNGU, RECEIVED A CHEQUE DONATION ON BEHALF OF HIS CHIEF FOR AN ANNUAL CULTURAL CEREMONY AROUND LUSAKA. THE CHEQUE WAS IN THE NAME OF THAT CEREMONY. BUT A MINISTER NEGOTIATED WITH INDO ZAMBIA BANK FOR THEM TO DEPOSIT THE CHEQUE IN HIS PERSONAL ACCOUNT.

    IMAGINE HOW MUCH INTEREST HE MADE IF THE CHEQUE WAS K10B! THE CASE WAS EVEN IN COURT. BUT THE FORMER MINISTER WAS SET FREE. HE STILL SITS IN OUR PARLIAMENT.

    THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY WAYS IN WHICH PEOPLE LIKE HH MADE THEIR MONEY-FRAUD.

    PLEASE LET SATA DO SOME CLEANUP.

    • You are truly an *****. Tax matters are handled by professioanls at ZRA not that uneducated man in STATE HOUSE. The companies HH has shares in are all limited entities. Their books are audited. The companies submit annual returns to ZRA so if there were issues worthy talking about we would have known about it long time ago. Mwana, Sata is finished thats why he couldnt officiate at youth and womens days. His Vice, Dr Scott shakes like a kachasu man. PF is going?

  77. Sata and his clique of Pathetic Failures need to full their “fake” campaign promises first before they try to divert our attention. Let him also ask his friends to pay back the money they borrowed from Development Bank of Zambia and what they owe statutory bodies.

  78. HH and his boyfriends William Banda and Robert Amsterdam are the ones making noise, His Excellency Michael Sata rarely comments on these hyenas with no plan

  79. HH IS A HARD WORKER! WHAT WORK HAS HE DONE!

    WHAT NONSENSE!

    I AGREE WITH KABIMBA. HH’S BOOKS HAVE FAILED TO RECONCILE WITH ZRA OVER THE YEARS, THAT IS WHY THE PRESIDENT IS RAISING THESE ‘USEFUL IDIIOTIC” QUERIES.

  80. you morons who cannot see that ukwa is again very wrong here, are only displaying your high level of retardeness which has led to the reason why we have kaponyas in parley and in plot 1. wake up, otherwise you shall remain in perpetual poverty at the expense of a few political chancers. cry our beloved country. we need redemption and deliverance

  81. While I don’t doubt HH’s ability to generate wealth or grow investments, I do doubt his source of money. U can not do big business without big money..The fact that successive presidents have accused HH of wrongfully benefiting from the privatisation process should make every sober minded Zambian think twice about the source of HH’s money. If indeed HH legitimately acquired his wealth then he has nothing to fear from any probe instituted against him. But Sata also should let the investigative wings independently carry our any investigations and not issue instructions that are driven by his hatred for HH. Sata should also remember that what goes around comes around.

  82. No wonder farming is failing in Zambia!!! The president does not appreciate or understand that you can create serious wealth thru farming and agriculture! Here in Botswana the president encourages every citizen to own a farm. Zambians have an asset in HH only if you stop just being mere jealousy and government puppets. All the best

  83. @Zambian

    EXCUSE ME? HH IS AN ASSET!

    DESPERATE INVESTORS SEND IN $100B DOLLARS AS DEPOSIT TO BUY ONE DIVISION OF ZCCM DURING THE RUSH HOUR OF THE CORRUPT CHILUBA’S PRIVATIZATION POLICY. USING MAFIA TACTICS HH DEPOSITS THAT MONEY IN HIS PERSONAL ACCOUNT FOR THREE MONTHS OR EVEN MORE LIKE HIS FORMER SPORTS MINISTER USED TO DO. IF EVERYONE WAS CORRUPT LIKE HH, WHO DO YOU THINK CAN FAIL TO BE AN ASSET?

    ZRA OR ANY BANK IN ZAMBIA DO NOT HAVE RECORDS OF HH’S TAX RETURNS OR ACCOUNTS DURING THAT PERIOD. WHERE WAS HE LAUNDERING THE MONEY? THE FELLOW HAS SIMPLY FOUND HIS MATCH IN THE ‘USEFUL IDDIIOT’ PRESIDENT WHO NOW WANTS TO SCRUTINIZE HIS WEALTH.

  84. Now I want to make peace with you HH. You have the right to respond to what the president has said about you. But you should also know that the president has the right to react to insults. When you said ‘Sata has no brains’ did you genuinely believe he had no brains? If he had no brains why did he convince many Zambians to vote for him, and not you who implicitly has brains. Do you mean even the people who gave Sata the presidency of Zambia have no brains? If you seriously reflect on this, you will realise that you insulted Zambians and not Sata. The least you can do is to offer a simple apology. Failure to this will leave you cursed forever and the money you have amassed will evaporate like mist.

    • HH is right. If Sata had brains why always talk about HHs private property? Wonama only has bongobomgo but no brains. Take a survey and find out who voted for Sata. They are cheap illiterates with no brains just like you. They believed every lie that came from Satas mouth and today they are crying foul. Such i.d.i.o.t.s dont even deserve to vote.

  85. Roger this
    ”The President must be thanking us for creating jobs for Zambians and encouraging others to go in that direction but he is now busy berating us.”
