HH mocks the Kwacha, holds a moment of silence to mourn the ‘dead’ Kwacha

Share

UPND Mandevu Hot

Opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has declared that the PF Government has killed the Kwacha.

Addressing hundreds of people that gathered at Mutambe grounds in Mandevu Sunday afternoon for the UPND rally, Mr Hichilema said President Sata is responsible for the ‘death’ of the local currency.

“Our money is worthless. Mr Sata has killed our Kwacha. Join me in observing a two second silence for the dead Kwacha,” Mr Hichilema told the cheering crowd.

Mr Hichilema then burst out in a mock cry and mourned the weak Kwacha as he heaped the blame on the PF’s alleged mismanagement of the economy.

He said the high cost of living is a result of the removal of subsidies on Maize and fuel.

Mr Hichilema charged that the PF has failed to run national affairs as can be seen by the confusion in the party.

“They have failed. They are always fighting each other because they don’t have any development agenda for the people.”

Mr Hichilema said Zambians should not lose hope and asked Zambians to place their hope in the UPND.

“Voting for the UPND is voting for development. Voting for the UPND is an opportunity to change the course of development for this country. We want to place Zambia on the path to development. I have a debt to Zambians, they educated me for free and I should pay back so that all these children of Mandevu should go to University so that they can have a chance to have a good job or start a meaningful business.”

Mr Hichilema charged that President Sata is too tired to run Government adding that he should rest together with his old cabinet colleagues.

“Bakangiwa (they have failed), they have failed run this country. They are all old and tired. The PF cabinet is full of skeletons.”

Mr Hichilema stated that it is unacceptable for Mandevu with over 20, 000 residents does not have a modern hospital.

“This place needs a hospital, the four clinics we have in Mandevu are inadequate to cater for health care needs of the people. As UPND, we will construct a modern hospital in Mandevu once we take over government,” Mr Hichilema promised.

He also criticized the PF government for its appetite for borrowing on the international capital markets.

“The PF is busy creating a mountain of debt. Zambia won’t need to borrow if the PF government collected windfall tax from mines. They are borrowing heavily and using loans to do poor roads and give friends road contracts. Are people going to eat roads?”

Mr Hichilema said under the PF, hospitals and clinics do not have ARVs and BCG drugs for children due to mismanagement of the health sector.

He added, “Under UPND, no one will die of HIV because ARVs will be readily available.”

    • I am yet to learn about their manifesto and policies for the country as I can’t see any detailed document on their website- besides, PF did the same and turned around on their promises- the answer is never to put too much trust in the politicians to run our lives. They carter for their own interests first.

    • No words, so Embarrassing to see how PF have failed the Zambian People. True, they are full of Old and moving skeletons. Including the Ambassadors they have appointed. HH please advise your VP to be smart?? What’s that Zezulu goatee style?? When it comes to international & foreign circles, People judge based on your looks. So groom your Man to the right face for Zambia.

    • That what I like about HH, we be dancing again and not fighting.
      Lets take a moment of silence for the “dead” happiness in Zambia.

    • I thought HH was a Zambian living in Zambia and using Kwacha, why is he celebrating Kwacha’s problems.

    • Has the Kwacha ‘died’ from the level of K4 – 5 per dollar to upper mid K6.5 per dollar? That is the crux of the matter. This factor will drown the current regime. It’s like a man who allows smoke to increase in the house where he is sleeping (Kwacha depreciation) and claims he and his family are fine; fine to the grave yard I dare say!

    • Trousers ba HH ebengesa tuteka aba ?
      This croud was brought from Chibolya to have big numbers i persnnally live in Mandevu and never witnessed a neighbor go and listen to lies try somewhere else under five we cannot allow enexperience to rule us. First of all return the Farm land you bought from a vulnerable family in central province then we might believe you criminal who benefited from privatisation of our companies

  1. PF is shell shocked.still in a state of denial.This is how MMD felt pressure.PF was gaining popularity like wild fire.

    • its true… all these people are UPND cadres, you can tell from their dressing.do these people reside in Lusaka or they were ferried from kibombo,i believe salaula is cheap in lusaka but mmm…..dresssing .keep it up exept you forgot to tell them what you are going to do for them once in power and of course the roads , bumper harvest,univesities under constaction,reduction of chibolya to kabolya and many more.

  2. eka crowd aka? HH bikako amano!! This is your only chance, since you politicians prey on the plight of the innocent and the ignorant. Twalimonapo ama crowd, not ako…

    • @Kyle, it is because of crowd followers like you that Zambia finds itself is dire financial straits from a failed government. PF has failed. Check this out:

      1. Kwacha depreciated from around RB’s K4 800/$ to now Sata’s K6900/$
      2. Mealie meal has increased from around RB’s K38 to now Sata’s K70 – 90
      3. Tax on imports (Duty and VAT) has more than doubled.
      4. Fuel prices are higher.
      5. Electricity Costs are higher.
      6. Transport Costs are higher.
      7. Government debts are higher.
      8. Budgets deficit is higher.
      9. Subsidies removed and thus cost of living is higher,.
      10. Nothing happening in promised jobs.
      11. Less money in pockets cos of above

    • Yes, the attendance was good considering the existing situation of fear of Panga Family (PF). A lot of people are not sure what to expect from the FP cadres as the reference points are there for all to recall, i.e. Kabwata, Eastern Provinces and Ndola incidences.

    • @Salamat.
      YOU HAVE LISTED ELEVEN AREAS WHERE THE PF HAS SEEMINGLY FAILED. CAN YOU ALSO GIVE US ANOTHER LIST OF HOW HH WILL CHANGE EACH OF THOSE ELEVEN SITUATIONS? FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE KWACHA IS NOW K6,900/$ AS YOU HAVE SAID, TO WHAT VALUE WILL HH REDUCE IT AND HOW AND IN HOW MANY DAYS?. IF M/MEAL IS COSTING K70-90, HOW MUCH WILL IT COST UNDER HH AND HOW AND IN HOW MANY DAYS? IF THE MINIMUM WAGE HAS BEEN INCREASED AND GRZ SALARIES HAVE GONE UP, ISNT THAT MORE MONEY IN PEOPLES POCKETS? AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION, GRZ WORKERS ARE NOW BETTER REMUNERATED THAN BEFORE. THAT IS WHY IT IS DIFFICULT TO MOBILIZE THEM AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT.

    • If chipimo held a political rally he would get even less people. But he would get more votes that winter and sata put together. These crowds usually follow were speakers discharge insults like sata.

    • @Chisenga.

      Facts can be painful and yet true. PF has lamentably failed and if you do live in ZED, you would not even ask. The devil always starts with “IF” when he wants to challenge the verities of God.

      It is not IF the exchange rate is unacceptable or IF mealie meal is expensive or IF the government is spending more than half of budget on emoluments or IF this failed PF government has over borrowed.

      It is a NOW reality.

      Remember it is Sata who promised miracles in 90 days! And now that he is in power, we hold him to account.

  3. And you call this a mammoth rally, UPND is far from forming GOVT, even in it’s confused state PF can still attract a mammoth rally than UPND, UPND should consider another leader HH is not saleable

    • It is not a rally which forms government, it is the people when they feel the heat and pinch of poor economic management. I was not there at the rally but HH is assured of my vote.

    • Analyst yu are a liar ,let Pf call for a rally today in lusaka and see if many pipo will come as they used too in 2011.Keep on leaving in a state of denail .The truth is a revolution has stated.Many pipo were a fraid to go and thought that the police will cancel the permit.However the attendance was not bad at all.

  4. PF Pa Fwaka – You are disgrace to Zambia! If only you could listen. Unfortunately, you lack even the capacity for that.

  5. PF carders behaved well this time not disrupting other peoples’ gatherings
    US and UK must have done a good job castigating this government about their
    Violent attributes

  6. Ati no one will die of HIV. Sorry UPND this man won’t win it for you. UPND will need to work really hard, prop this man up otherwise it’s a lost battle.

    • Mess up with ARVs and you are gone (dead) if you have the virus. And of course its not HIV that kills, its the opportunistic infections. People die from so many ailments, even accidents. But depriving ARVs or indeed any medicines due to carelessness is not only criminal but also satanic and inhuman, and pf must realise that.

    • Haha @cpn. Twist it all you want. We all know what he said and he said no one will die of HIV BECAUSE OF NOT HAVING ARVs. Sorry your PF has failed and it is time for change. People in Zambia should be changing governments until the politicians learn not to take the people for granted. PF have done this and they are going whether you like it or not.

  7. When the PF won,the kwacha lost. My fellow Zambians,its not always about what is popular,it HAS to be about what is painfully right and HH is just giving us a glimpse of that on the kwacha’s slide under the PF.

    • @9 enka
      why do u want to continously delude yourself with dung coming from this self styled liar who stole privatisation funds.
      this scumbag has no program for zambia,he is just a petty excited demagogue.
      why does this scumbag copy everything HEMCS used to do in opposition. find your own scumbag.

    • @ george bush

      Who died as a convicted criminal for stealing money from Zambian people?
      By the way, who wanted to give him third term to steal more?
      Where are gone 1,750 million dollars (1.75billion USD)? HH account? Development? New national airline? New Hospitals?

  8. Sata is a blessed man.under his rule the following unprecedented things happened-we won AFCON,will celebrate independence jubilee,lsk turned 100years.the only presido to appoint a white man as veep,the only presido to appoint women in key positions ,the only presido to testify in a court.chief justice has acted more than two years,out of 5 zed presido is the only one who lost weight after becoming a president due to hard work,the only presido who has never held a press conference in zed,the only president to be visited by one president[mugabe],the only presido with a wife who uses her maiden name,

    • Kwacha became the worst,the only presido to phone a community radio station[hot fm] and newspaper[daily nation],the only presido to say libolo,runs the biggest cabinet in zed history,key information comes from the P0st as opposed to state owned media add on,add on,add on!

  9. SO IN THIS HIGHLY POPULATED AREA THIS IS THE ONLY CROWD UPND CAN ATTRACT. I CAN ONLY SEE TWO OR THREE VEHICLES IN THE BACK GROUND. THIS ONLY GOES TO SHOW THAT BWANA HH YOU HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. AND OUR OVERZEALOUS POLICE SHOULD KEEP ON ALLOWING THIS MAN TO HOLD RALLIES AND SEE FOR HIMSELF HOW MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE IN HIM. NO DOUBT SOME OF THE PEOPLE IN THE CROWD WERE CURIOUS PF SUPPORTERS.

    • I agree – and some of those are spectators just curious to see how HH looks like not really his supporter. Minus those that have no voters cards – there is very little to sing home about.

      Having said that however, i would like to encourage the UPND to keep putting pressure on the PF so that they can continue to perform for the Zambian people.

    • By far HH looks better than Sata. Sata aoneka monga ni chinyawu choyofyelako abana. Sata is as ugly as his heart. The bible says you shall know them by their looks.

  10. Were HH’s clothes ironed? I can see the wash-line marks on his trousers (just above the knee). Madam is not looking after him well.

    • These guys do not sleep at their homes, look at the Vice President, no time for shaving/combing his hair and beards. HH likes that Jersey, this is not the first time am seeing it with him in public. The other time he had it on his shoulders when he was leaving court.

    • Awe na ine nimbona ba Gawula bakamba…Ba Hakaisundawila Hakainyelawila taba ba cishile itoloshi….
      O kae musadi wa hae???????

  11. UPND is moribund cause of the following reasons 1. They cannot attract a reasonable crowd to their rallies in areas they claim they have become popular. 2. Their president who claim to be rich and is married cannot even take care of himself, look at the trousers nemikonye 3. He is adding more pressure to the currency to cause more confusion, if he won, won’t it be the same economy he will take over. HH has no heart for the Zambians but just want to come do the Luanshya debacle on us God forbid!!!

    • Is it ironed clothes and shaved face that work? That’s why you will end up voting for empty tins just because they are wearing ironed clothes and have shaved their faces. Be analytical

    • Peter Njovu, you surprise me with your response. You mean to tell me that it is okay for a party president to go to a public meeting unkempt? What does it take to pick a pressing iron to iron a trousers. If he has no time for such, what about when he becomes president in a real sense?

  12. MR HICHILEMA REJECTED THE PACT TO SERVE IN MOCKING ZAMBIANS.HE AND MR CHIPIMO ARE THE ONES WHO SOLD OUR COMPANIES ON BEHALF OF THE STATE WHY SHOULD HE BLAME PF.
    UPND WERE PART OF MMD CAPITALISM.PF MEANS TO DEVELOP ZAMBIA.ON GOING CAPITAL FLIGHT IS CALCULATED MOVE BY BILDERBEGS TO CONTROL OUR ECONOMY

    • You have a distorted way of understanding issues or presenting facts for that matter. What is causing the capital flight is simple, the huge contracts PF is giving to Chinese without clauses in contracts to have Zambians on board, refer to countries like Botswana . This simply implies majority of the money for the road contracts is going to China and as little as 15% in real money is reaming in Zambia, knowing how efficient the Chinese are with profit making. PF needed to be more patriotic by ensuring every big contract has a Zambian involved for Chine-man to win a tender.

    • @simonMfula

      You are a f00l. where was Sata when HH was selling the companies on instruction by the MMD government? What position was Sata occupying in MMD when privatisation took place?
      HH and Chipimo did a commendable job for the MMD government in which Sata was number three.
      The problem is that Sata influenced Chiluba to steal the privatisation money. Sata even stole the money meant fo merzaf housing project.
      To be honest with you, Sata was responsible for misleading Chiluba during Chiluba ‘s time in office. That is why Chiluba performed badly.

      During Mwanawasa, MMD did very well all because Sata left the government in fear of Mwanawasa who did not tolerate Sata ‘s rampant corruption and theft by public servant.

      During Banda’s era, MMD performed well because Sata…

    • See what a mess Zambian economy is now that Sata in charge. Sata is a simply a destroyer. What ever he lays his hands on gets destroyed period. When was in charge of Ministry of local government, K2billion Kwacha meant for housing project went missing, all government and council houses were sold off with a promise to rebuild more. When he went to Ministry of health, most Nurses and Doctors left Zambia for South Africa, Botswana , Namibia and UK.

      The Zambian Kwacha and economy will only recover when Sata and his minions are booted out.

      So iwe @simonMfula, get your facts right before you yap. Its unfortunate if you were still a toddler when Sata was busy stealing government fund with chiluba openly.

      Right now you paid far less money than in 2011 in dollar terms all because of Sata.

    • @ simonmfula

      Are you pretending to be 5tupid or you are really 5tupid?

      Who died as a CONVICTED criminal for stealing money from Zambian People?
      HH? Think again.
      Who instructed AG not to register judgement in the High Court and seek recovery of 46 Million USD?
      HH?
      And to add insult to injury, who won election by KNOWINGLY DECEIVING People of Zambia?
      HH?

  13. Its nice that HH has commented about the weak kwacha. I am, however, disappointed because he has not said anything about the remarks made by one Indian guy who bought KCM for a song.

    • Go on HH you are the only capable candidate and come 2016…………..
      PF is dead for real I believe have seen for themselves

  14. “ As UPND, we will construct a modern hospital in Mandevu once we take over government,” Mr Hichilema promised.
    “The PF is busy creating a mountain of debt. Zambia won’t need to borrow if the PF government collected windfall tax from mines.
    Two important statements from UPND leader which i have quoted above. First, I thought infrastructure development is what this government has prioritized. For example roads, bridges and hospitals are being constructed around our country. Now the question is, with which money Is the UDND leader is going to use to construct a Mordern Hospital in Mandevu. By the way lets not pretend and assume that windfall tax will be automatic if UPND forms Government in Future. Unless We don’t understand what windfall tax means.

    • Bob the deference will be that while PF is constracting Roads and other Infrastructure on Kaloba Money,UPND will construct Roads and hospitals from Taxs and Grants from friendly countries.At the moment Pf cadres a geting contracts and resale to chines contrators ,hence the Capitol flight.Everything in PF is driven by coruption.In short yu cant put a monkey and expect it to take care of the haverst.Mwanawasa taught pipo that its posible for Zambia to develop without subjecting pipo to hunger e.g meal meal at k80.Are we going to eat Roads these are long term investments.So good planner will only plan for the future without taking in consideration the imediate needs first.

  15. HH was involved in plundering of national resources in league with late Chiluba, Valentine Chitalu (through Zambia Privatisation Agency). He made billions through dubious selling of mines, Inter-continental hotel and many other parastatals by under-pricing them, joining hands with foreigners, kick-backs and sitting on their boards in Zambia, Mauritius and lucrative contracts of supplies (through proxies). Politicians of MMD era are all the same. PF is MMD 2, UPND is MMD 3. Zambia needs a new leader and politicians under 40 years to be at the helm of national affairs. Nobody above 40 shall be voted in next elections.

  16. Once again, I am moved to comment on the statements by Mr Hakainde. I find it very difficult to reconcile the celebrated ‘Economic Manager’ and ‘Businessman’ with his statements. From the days on UNIP through MMD and now PF, one of the biggest problems that the treasury has had to deal with is the cost of subsidies and who benefits from them. PF removed subsidies to lighted the burden on the taxpayer who was subsidising the mines by paying for their fuel (electricity and fossil fuels). In the case of maize; you end up subsidising Zimbabweans and the Congolese as well. Subsidies are not sustainable; I expected better from Mr Hakainde rather than this populist ‘windfall tax will solve everything’ mentality. What happens when copper prices collapse and there is no windfall?

    • @Manlove

      You are also one the f00ls who can’t reason. Yes they took away subsidies as a ploy to fatten their personal wealth. Why is the government failing to complete and fund the projects they initiated, pay government workers on time if the reason to remove subsidies was to save money?

      In countries like ours with majority poor, the only way to implement social benefits is by subsidies. All the western world where this idea of subsidy removal came from still subsidise the lively hood of the poor through social benefits such as free housing, free money to buy basics, free education for the poor children etc.

      So I urge you to be careful when you comment on such issues. If you hate HH, just say so, without commenting on issues you have very little knowledge about.

      Viva HH,…

    • Wanzelu, I assume by your moniker that you think that you are clever or intelligent. There is however, nothing clever or intelligent about calling people that you disagree with ‘fools’. The essence of mature discourse lies in being able to tolerate divergent views and opinions. Mine are based on Economic theory and not blind hero worship; you can choose to be an Ostrich and bury your head in the sand while exposing your thinking parts if you choose, but you cannot make statements to me like ‘So I urge you to be careful when you comment on such issues. If you hate HH, just say so, without commenting on issues you have very little knowledge about’ when I know alot about the Zambian economy (Higher degree level). Nowhere have I stated my ‘hate’ for HH or anyone else for that matter.

  17. that trouser awe sure ba “rich man” from pantambo straight mwafwala. ifiko ba UPND Veep na President babo

    • Indoti!! Indoti pamubili aba nabo!! We’ve heard such promises before! Probably getting back to MMD will save our souls.

  18. At the rate Sata has opened up opportunities, HH is just cheating himself. Please offer alternatives NOT ‘kunyoza’. Remember this is a chap who said , i wont win but i will make sure sata doesnt win too.

  19. Yaba!!

    Is this what these guys have been spending sleepless nights for? If what the Lusaka Times has reported about the rally is really what was said, then I think this man is driving UPND into the abyss.

    UPND needs an alternative leader, one who is wise, charismatic, and with leadership qualities. With this man at the helm, UPND is a lost cause

    Thank you

    • HOTFM REPORTED CORRECTLY BY SAYING THE UPND ATTRATED A SIZEABLE CROWD.

      WATCH YOUR BACK WITH CANICIOUS BANDA. HE IS A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. I AM SURE AFTER THE RALLY HE PASSED THROUGH STATE HOUSE ON SOME ‘MATTERS OF NATIONAL SECURITY’. MY FOOT!!!!! HOW CAN HH BE SO NAIVE? THIS IS A ‘KACHINGWE’ PLANTED IN THE UPND TO DESTROY IT.

      HH WATCH THIS SPACE. EVERYBODY CAN SEE THE TRAP EXCEPT YOU.

  20. most people attend these rallies out of curiosity…not everybody who attends and sings/chants along will vote UPND

  21. MICHEAL SATA CHILUFYA KATONGO CHARLES MWANGO AND CHILUBA GOVERNMENT WERE THE PEOPLE WHO PRIVATISED ZAMBIAN COMPANIES. HH WAS NOT IN GOVERNMENT.

    DULL CHARACTERS HH AND CHIPIMO HAVE NOT BEEN IN GOVERNMENT. BLAME YOUR PRESIDENT MICHEAL SATA BECAUSE HE WAS IN GOVERNMENT. JUST LIKE NOW THE KWACHA IS BEING BURRIED AND YOU CANT BLAME HH AND CHIPIMO.
    GIVE HH TIME TO RULE THIS NATION AND YOU WILL SEE HOW HE IS GOING TO IMPROVE THE ECONOMY. ITS TRUE A BAD CARPENTER BLAMES HIS TOOLS. SO PF JUST ACCEPT THAT YOU HAVE FAILED TO RUN THIS NATION PERIOD. WE TOLD YOU JUST AT THE BEGINNING THAT YOUR TEAM CAN NOT MANAGE THIS COUNTRY. SO TIME AND LIES HAVE CAUGHT UP WITH YOU. VIVA HH. VIVA UPND. JUST KNOW THAT HH IS THE INCOMING PRESIDENT. FORWARD HH, UPND AND ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. VIVA HH & UPND. 2016…

    • @ Sinkamba….. Whether you like it or not, HEMCS is your president too. He was voted in by all of us. HH is always talking about old people. He thinks he is getting any younger? We will see who will vote for him. At that “rally” I can only see small children and kaponyas who are not voters. Please convice me what remedial measures HH has for Zambia. HH should learn to look smart. Was he from cattle-herding to look like that? Look at ba Dr Banda, he is equally a mess. Please boys ‘bath’ before going out. I for one CAN NEVER cast my precious vote on HH. I hate dirt.

    • So you still dont know the foolish role this HH played during privatization?? Why do you think he kept a completely low profile during mazokas’ UPND ( Chiluba time) ? If he had raised his head Chiluba has sufficient data to indict this HH of yours. Where was he all that time??

    • @Old Woman Voter, i agree with you, these two guys are very dirt and always untidy. No wonder, i doubt bu richman bwabo. ifikooooooooooooooooo ba HH na Banda wabo. ngani Banda its like he has stopped bathing

  22. Can you imagine someone having an electrical problem in the house and hires an experienced electrician who slowly analyses faults left by the previous electrician anf abruptly wants to change to hire an inexperienced simply because of rushing to power up the house! lets be careful people!

  23. Did the Kwacha actually GAIN under MMD, or the 4.8k I am hearing about is just about where they left it when they were rustled out of power? When you take things out of context you are bound to make the same mistake – fellow Zedians, let us for ONCE do a proper analysis of our affairs instead of leaning everything against cheap politicking…

  24. No one was educated for free in Zambia. That is a myth. Our parents were taxed so much that most of them had no pensions by the time they retired and most of them dided prematurely. A great majority of them left no inheritance for their children and those who are still alive are now depending on their chi;ldren to look after them, except KK alone who is still living on taxpayers’ money for more than 50 years!

  25. The kwacha is truly defunct. Export is not matching import. Foreign companies like First Quantum, Vedanta, Barrick, Glencore, CNMC and Metorex are taking all of the forex abroad, not to mention the massive plethora of Asian traders. WITH THIS IN MIND…HOW CAN THE KWACHA SURVIVE??? One does not need an MBA from Harvard to decipher this. Hon Sata and his inept coterie of ministers cannot figure out this simple cash flow principle.

  26. The PF cadres trying to discredit HH and his Veep on account of dressing is surely misplaced. HH and his handlers did a fantastic job this time around of image building by adopting the ”If you go to Rome, do what Romans do” principle. HH and his team was not addressing Business executives in Intercontinental Hotel or Royal Zambezi for him to be elegantly dressed as is being suggested. For God’s sake’ the rally was being held in the heart and core of Mandevu compound, an urban slum where poverty is written everywhere. As a way of identifying himself with the people, he must be seen as one who can roll up his sleeves and take off his neck ties and suits. Hope and Help (HH) is surely coming in 2016.

    • no brother, atleast a decent trouser could do unless you are looking down upon the people of mandevu that they are dirt. just tell him to improve on his dressing alikwata sana ifiko together with that bearded man who seems not to take his bath

  27. These politicians will only tell us what we want to hear. Even if HH becomes president he will forget all the promises. Is it true that HH pays some of his workers
    K200.00 per month?

    • HH has interests in lots of enterprises held by corporates. For obvious security reasons, they remain undisclosed but for the famous HH farms with a herd of now over 105 000 cattle! And even if he wanted to pay below the minimum wage, it certainly cant be K200 which even you poor as you are cannot pay your maid, if you can afford one from an agency not the ones from the village…..puli wena!

  28. HH like all Zambians enjoys the RIGHT TO WASTE HIS TIME. It is within his rights to dream. If he is popular than MCS the election results will confirm it.

  29. My dear pals, only Jesus Christ will serve us from these hardships we are passing through and not these bafoons trying to cheat that they will do this and that. As for Dr Canisius Banda he left a noble course of looking after the sick due to his selfishness and went into politics to satisfy his belly quickly, shame on him. As for the current govt they have seen that it is not easy to govern and they should have the heart to listen even from the opposition even though the opposition may not be sincere bcos they are always discrediting even where it is not necessary. God save my beloved Zambia from all these gluttons and selfish leaders we have. Otherwise it is politics of the belly and not service. How I wish Elias Chipimo could be more active by engaging the electorate countrywise.

  30. Sorry I meant Jesus Christ to save us and not serve(foreign language). Chipimo should start holding rallies throughout the country and not these talkshows he does on radio and TV only.

    • Its like nachimikalipa sana Bakolwe,that HH is now doing it in style,Next its copala swag aleisa aleisa.Even if yu barry yo head in sand Ingoma shilelila.ONLY A HARD call TRIBALIST can not see that Zambia is headed to distruction.I always remaind zambians who feal that there more zambians than others,that Zambians are not stupid just like it hapened in Malawi so it will happen in Zambia.

  31. @Chisenga. You must be very dull. People were afraid of being macheted by the Panga Family; that is why they were skeptical of attending the rally. Wake up CADRE!

    • @Munshebwa. EXCUSES, EXCUSES AND EXCUSES ALL THE TIME. IN 2011 YOU GAVE EXCUSES. IN ALL THE BY-ELECTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN HELD SO FAR YOU HAVE BEEN GIVING EXCUSES. I GUESS EVEN IN 2016 YOU WILL BE GIVING THE SAME EXCUSES. LEARN TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE. THIS WAS A POORLY ATTENDED RALLY. THERE IS NO ONE WITH PANGA HERE. THE PROBLEM IS THAT UPND OVERRATES ITSELF. ADMITTEDLY THE PF IS NOT DOING AS WELL AS WE WANTED. BUT THAT DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY TRANSLATE INTO UPND’s VICTORY IN 2016. HALF OF THE PEOPLE AT THIS RALLY WERE PF SUPPORTERS. AND HALF OF THE REMAINING HALF WERE FERRIED FROM OTHER PLACES MAYBE SP INCLUSIVE. THE PANGA EXCUSE IS NOT TENABLE BABA.

  32. ALL THE BLAH..BLAH..BLAH…BLAH..BLAH ABOUT THE POLICE NOT GIVING HIM PERMITS AND THE PUBLIC ORDER ACT …….ONLY TO COME UP WITH THIS EXCUSE OF A CROWD!!! HE USED TO HAVE MORE CROWDS IN 2011 THAN WHAT I CAN SEE HERE. AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE MAY HAVE BEEN FERRIED FROM SOUTHERN PROVINCE IN THOSE THREE MINI BUSES…LOL

  33. HH thinks it is easy to run government. The Kwacha can only pick if the cooper price picks up and alsoif we increase our exports. HH should tell us how he isgoing to do that instead.

    • So how did Levy and RB manage to run the economy well despite low copper prices?

      Admit it, PF has failed!!!

    • he ll export more aromatic alderhyde and formalderhyde to earn forex. HH thinks running a country is as easy as he takes over from dead pipo.how can sane person ever think of voting for hh.

  34. People have started seeing through these so called opposition parties. No substance, no real issues to discuss, no alternatives, the list is endless

    Could someone please inform us what was said at the rally? Any major pronouncements, alternatives, manifesto, way forward as a country, etc…I bet there is non which these guys can offer. Look at how Sekwila keeps embarassing himself each time he opens his mouth!!! So nauseating if you asked me

  35. Sadly a delivery lacking in inspiration. HH has neither the necessary verve nor the charisma required to move the majority Zambians to decide for him come election day. It’s just a lot of hocus-pocus.

  36. But this hh guy is very dull. What will those poor loafers get from your whining and mockery. If you care, why don’t you bring then 1000 cattle and 5000 bags of maize so that they see that you are serious with what your are saying. To me bwana hh, you are very very very shallow and petty, i wish some of your followers will one day see through you. Ata!!!

  37. Kudos to the photographer for laying liars bare. The phographer has shown clearly that UPND has no following in Mandevu. The author of the story has also stated the fact that UPND rally was attended by hundreds not thousands of people. Critically examining the pictures one would not belabour to conclude that the ettendants numbered 300 at the most, yet Mandevu is a teeming area of over 20 000 people.
    Canious Banda , born and bred in Mandevu still thinks he can capture Mandevu. Zinopindulana pegeot na benzi. Dream on and on. I will vote for HH in 2116 if only latest scientific findings review that man can live for over 200 years. If this is not the case there is no chance for him. He will never rule.

  38. Truly Underfive, can you compare this skeleton of a rally to the crowds Sata attracts. If you argue to into the archives or even google and check Sata’s rallies and compare to this skeleton and you will know that HH is just a noise maker and not salable. It is unacceptable for an opposition leader who claims to be growing in popularity to attract such size able crowds especially in an area like Lusaka. Believe you me UPND is going nowhere, and I will remind you about this in 2016 you will see

  39. ITS GOOD THAT THE UPND RALLY WENT UNDISRUPTED. I HAVE ONLY ONE COMMENT AGAINST HH.

    YOUR REMARKS ON THE KWACHA COULD HAVE BEEN MADE IN A BETTER WAY THAT BE SO UNPATRIOTIC.

    DO YOU KNOW THAT YOUR REMARKS WILL SINK THE KWACHA FURTHER? PEOPLE LETS KNOW HOW TO DO POLITICS RATHER STEP INTO BEING UNPATRIOTIC.

    OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SPOKE AT THIS RALLY, NOONE OFFERED ANY SOLUTIONS BECAUSE UPND HAS NO SOLUTIONS. THEY JUST WANT TO GET INTO POWER THEN START FUMBLING..

    ZAMBIANS , PLEASE, NO MORE EXPERIEMENTS!

    • Being patriotic does not mean you stop being realistic. If things are not going well, we need to say it & not shy away just because it sounds bad for our country. Honesty is the best policy. Realizing & Acknowledging that you have a problem is half a problem solved. It can only get worse if we fail to see problems or if we live in pretence.

  40. I wonder why some people think hh will come and change Zambia for better . The man is but an ordinary guy that got lucky by way of ZPA and became greedy. hh owns no single company but has invested heavily in many multinational companies(South African) one of them is Sun International Zambia, where he has been the sole board chairman for 13 years undisputed, the workers at Sun International are paid less than minimum wage the increment they got was in 2011 shortly after HEMCS was sworn in , the GM out of fear sent an email to all employees approving a meagre increment they had rejected from 2010. hh knows the suffering of employees at Sun International but he doesn’t care at all, his wife’s young brother works as a Butler there and suffers like every other employee, what really makes…

    • what really makes some people think that hh will give a damn about them? The man cares about nothing but profits he will be worse than rupiah banda , he will come and sell state institutions and pocket the money.

  41. @Katongo, thank you for being sobar and true to the point. HH went to mock Zambians in Mandevu and went to his Kabulong mansion to eat and sleep well. He is celebrating kwacha’s depreciation, who is going to suffer? Our celebrated Economic Manager failed to tell the people what, how and when he would resolve these issues. The fall of kwacha affects all Zambians leave politics for 2016 and face the reality that we need to develop the country. If you a Constitution today….by spending billions of kwacha today wont bring food on the table automatically. We need short term interventions to our economy. HH talked about roads, schools and hospitals which the current government is aggressively addressing so he has NO idea….no experience

  42. James Mphnde, school really didn’t help you did it? this has nothing to do with bring realistic and/or honest., acknowledging the problems and mocking are two different things, the chap is mocking kwacha and celebrating the problems thinking that it is a good thing to do politically.

  43. Polytrics, HH twalilila ukubweshako shimo and i doubt ngaula pisha namutumba iwe, nipa ZED master mukaba depressed. A crowd of fugistives from Chibilya and u think you are making it? Ndemona UPND mumoneko abengatutubusha ichilonganino.
