Livingstone UPND Endorses HH for 2016 elections

Headlines Livingstone UPND Endorses HH for 2016 elections

Hakainde Hichilema
Hakainde Hichilema

THE UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) in Livingstone says their party constitution does not limit the number of times a presidential candidate can stand and they have since endorsed Hakainde Hichilema as their presidential candidate for 2016.

Livingstone district UPND Chairperson Michael Kangayi said the party in the district was rallying behind the leadership of Mr Hakainde, hence their endorsement for him for 2016 and beyond.

Addressing journalists and some party members during a press briefing in Livingstone yesterday, Mr Kangayi said Mr Hichilema had demonstrated quality and mature leadership for the party and believed that Zambia could also achieve a better economy.

“H.H has demonstrated quality and mature leadership and we believe that Zambia can achieve better economy. He is not in politics for money but as a missionary to redeem Zambia’s economy. It is only HH’s leadership that can rehabilitate Zambia’s economy,” Mr Kangayi said.

Mr Kangayi said the UPND had engaged in a continuous campaign process until the 2016 general elections.

Meanwhile Mr Kangayi has condemned the appointment of Nalolo Member of Parliament Inonge Wina as vice president.

He said the appointment of Ms Wina would be likened to the blind leading the blind.

“The PF appointing the old lady think that they will win western province, that is a disaster if they want to use it to capture western province,” Mr Kangayi said.

And commenting on the appointment Solwezi Central Member of Parliament Dawson Kafwaya as North-Western Province minister, Mr Kangayi said the appointment would not weaken the party in the area adding that Mr Kafwaya was finishing himself.

“It’s sad that he accepted the appointment, but that will not weaken the position of the UPND and the Youngman is only finishing himself,” Mr Kangayi said.

Commenting on the just ended elections, Mr Kangayi said the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) and Zambia Police must in future desist the use of reserve police officer at the expense of professional officers as was the case in Livingstone.

“The use of police reserves was also questionable as there are not professionally trained and hence lack of capacity to interpret the electoral code of conduct. This disadvantaged the agents who were intimidated. Professionally trained police officers could be neutral and nonpartisan but police reserves and their neutrality is highly questionable,” Mr Kangayi said.

    • 100% agree with you. HH did exceptionally well during the last election and has the momentum and support, UPND know areas they need to improve on and going forward their votes can only increase. They have the advantage of being in the opposition and using the poor PF performance as campaign material. We all know the electorate will still be disappointed come 2015 as there will be no progress made with increasing employment levels, reducing poverty, strengthening the kwacha, reducing the cost of transport and the list is endless

      we are behind you HH

      By the way Kaminamisa Lungu was posing with the criminal murderer Fawaz during the inauguration, These are the friends he associates himself with and it says a lot about himself

    • How will they do that? If he really loves Zambia as much as he says he does, why can’t he start offering those solutions now so that we can test them and see if they work?

      I guess he will not, he has to wait until he is at State House … and what happens if he does not get to State House? Then his vision of Zambia would have been lost.

      Is that what patriots do? I once asked HH in a private setting these same questions and he had no answers. A doctor anywhere jumps just into duty when he finds an emergency.

      You could be on a plane, at the railway station, in a common toilet, anywhere and when an emergency occurs, a doctors immediately swings into action, he does not wait until you are the hospital.

      HH is all about himself, if he loves Zambia he needs to start offering…

    • My humble advice for the UPND is to drop Mr Hichilema as its leader and choose a non-Tonga leader as a way of cleansing itself. As far as many Zambians are concerned, the UPND will remain a regional and highly tribal grouping as long as its led by a Tonga because of the manner in which he assumed that position.

    • Endorsing HH to become the 5th time ballot reject is out of this world. With the Tonga inspired voting pattern seen in this election, Zambians across the country will take no time to ever blink, but turn up enmasse to bury this tonga tribalists’ agenda.

    • HH IS ZAMBIAN AND CAN EXERCISE HIS RIGHT TO STAND FOR PRESIDENCY
      BUT HE MUST DISSOCIATE HIMSELF FROM PEOPLE LIKE GARRY NKOMBO WHO INSULT ZAMBIANS:

      Garry said ” Zambia is a country FULL OF *****S”. I hope he doesn’t live in Zambia coz this makes him an ***** too. I hope his constituency is not in Zambia coz that makes people in Mazabuka *****S – meaning that Nkombo himself is an MP of *****S. I hope this fello’s family is not in Zambia as this would mean he comes from a family of *****S. And by extension, if HH doesn’t rebuke Nkombo it means HH also wants to preside over *****S and become a PRESIDENT OF *****S.

      ITS THEREFORE NO ROCKET SCIENCE FOR HH TO SEE THAT WITH NKOMBO BY HIS SIDE, HIS GOAL AT THE PRESIDENCY IN 2016 is guaranteed to be another failed bid, take my word!!!!!!!

    • True that Obatala.

      Viva HH and viva UPND!

      HH is the best to lead the country but rigging and PF are the ones hindering the democratic process.

      Viva Hakainde Hichilema for president.

      The Skeleton Key
      ~206~

    • well, it can only be the southern province endorsing tongalism, all have come to the show to condemn the tribal voting pattern of southern province, but the man who went to the helm of UP&Down through tribal tricks and demands himself is yet to do so, I will only give him the kudos if he stands as man enough to condemn that tribal affiliation and appologise on behalf of UPND. only then can he add one more vote, without which mmmmmmmmmmm…..let him attempt presidence in another life.

    • A SIGN THAT THERE’RE LEADERSHIP ISSUES IN THE UPND. WHY ENDORSE NOW.. WHO ELSE WANTS TO STAND ON THE UPND TICKET in 2016? MORE IS COMING.WATCH AS IT UNFOLDS

    • ENDORSEMENTS OF HH BY UPND, UPND ENDORSE UPND? BAD SIGN IN UPND FOR REAL, WRANGLES ARE STARTING TO RESURFACE FOR REAL…

    • No presidential elections in 2016 untill 2021.Give president Lungu time to prove himself.Thats my advice to the opposition political parties.

    • HH will be up against a united and organized PF in 2016. Many of the advantages he had in the 2015 campagin will not be there in 2016. The voter turnout is also likely to increase and can envision that the voting pattern seen in Southern Province ( Nega Nega formula) will be replicated country wide in favor of EL in 7 provinces. EL has in fact already began to campaign for 2016!

    • @ Kalusha, we as UPND do not need your advice so called ‘ humble advice’–just mind your Paya Farmer party agenda; leave us to handle our own issues.

    • You people saying we change HH,why didnt you change Sata when he was losing? Why cant Bembas for a change vote for HH,since they claim they are not tribal.We know that Meembe will continue signing a song of Tonga tribalism until 2016 in the hope of proping up his friend Wynter Kabimba (He only talked about Bemba tribalism when his friend Kabimba was told by PF Bembas that he could rule because he was from a small tribe.If HH cannot rule on the basis of tribe,what of us Luvales ?Can Bembas Support us?

    • HH has become a household name till 2016. Dont talk of Tribe all of us either Tonga, Bemba or Ngoni we know where we r from, HH is unstopable and NO ONE will stand on our toes.

    • Many thanks to HH for the big improvement in the just ended election.he managed to shoot from 18% in 2011 to 47% in 2015.In 2016 he will with no doubt scoop the presidency with 67% and rule for next ten yrs.Keep it HH we always be with you.

    • HH and UPND I am in until he liberates Zambia from the shackles of oppressive , divisive and thieving pathetic Panga family(PF).

      To me jumping from 18% to 47.19% is tremendous victory at the time PF f00lish political analysts where predicting about the same 18%.

      Its gratifying to see many regions begin to look at HH as a competent serious minded leader who has immense capacity to deliver on his pledges other than his tribe. Slowly but surely, HH is inspiring and turning people to begin to think about a leader in terms of his ideas and not his tribe.

      There are who are saying he should start offering solutions now. To be frank HH has been offering tangible solutions to who ever is in government, but as usual any advice that he gives is scorned by the panga family.

      Viva HH.

    • My advise to UPND is that as they must do an inward check too. Dont focus on the external issue. the issue could be the president himself. Surely UPND is not short of leaders who can give it a try. It is very possible that maybe HH is not just appealing to people. Find another alternative, UPND may not be the problem it could be the person heading it.

    • HH ‘s words during some interview or debate made me understand why Panga family will even kill to in government when he said and I quote;

      ” These PF guys are busy sharing government contracts to privatise tax payers money and call themselves business men. They are not business men but mare crooks stealing from the poor”

      May be Lungu might try, with his “me too ” strategy if he listens carefully to HH ‘s visionary messages of how to tackle Zambia ‘s economic woos. How ever Lungu has a huge challenge because he is still surrounded with useless ministers Sata left him with.

      2016, no ifs no buts, lets all support HH the man with a very clear and credible plan to restore Zambia back on its good and progressive economic footing.

      No more pangas

      Viva HH

    • Shouldn’t that be automatic since he is the UPND president. Why endorsements? unless there are candidature issues in UPND..

    • HH should consider leaving politics. I support HH and I have always voted for him. He means well for this country and if he was given an opportunity he would move this country forward without a doubt. But the biggest problem is the people he is trying to help! They don’t know what is good for them. The various responses here give one some insight in the wired thinking of Zambians. It is in Zambia were you find strange combinations of poverty and arrogance, an unpaid farmer voting for the person who has not paid him; etc. Attempting to help such a person is a waste of effort. Zambians will waste HH’s time. He should just focus on his private life and spend quality time with his family. Zambians don’t deserve sympathy. Zambians need to learn the hard way!

    • HH is the best in UPND and amongst his supporters, not in Zambia. It is gross misrepresentation to say HH is the best in Zambia, he should have been ruling by now if he was the best. I can only wish him well however.

  1. This is a cult personality. Worship an individual at the expense of the whole country. Is this the only person capable of ruling Zambia? You have drunk the cool aide

    • @Nono

      How many years was Sata in opposition? ‘cult personality’ or ‘satanist’ fears only exist in your small brain

    • HH is finished. he appeals to tribalism through others. this is how he managed to get it from Mazoka because he was the only Tonga available to disadvantage non Tongas from succeeding Mazoka. if Hakainde wasn’t a tribalist

      1. he could have refused the offer to succeed Mazoka on tribal lines.
      2. he could have disowned tribalist statement from Munkombwe
      3. he could have told the political rally in southern province not to vote based on his tribe.
      HH will divide this country. Tribalism is real even in civil service. Government workers are divided. Employment is based on tribal lines.
      Which country is he going to rule with Tonga MPS in Parliament?
      Canasius Banda must watch his back because by virtue of his eastern surname, cannot win the province and his is just a bait for votes

    • @point just make your point without resorting to insults. Why are you taking it so personal? I never said anything about Sata nor do I believe Sata or Lungu should be worshipped the way u seem to adore hichilema. As someone pointed our already, he can contribute to building Zambia now instead of waiting until he is in office if ever

    • @ Point

      Sata was in opposition for 10 years, HH will be in oppostion for 23 years in 2016, 2021 he will be in for 28 years, meaning a child who was born when he started would be a University graduate even if he is doing medicine.

  2. Are these cadres really contributing to national development? It appears to me that their only source of livelihood is by worshipping other human beings. Elections are over but all they can think of is endorsing this or that individual.

    How do you wake up thinking of nothing but who to endorse in 2016? How do you know whether or not that individual will even still be around that time? In saying so, I am not in anyway wishing anyone to die. Let us take care of today. Only God knows what the future holds for us.

    This applies to cadres of all political parties.

    • Those are silly endorsements! Baits to just continue milking HH…ati Michael Kangayi said the party in the district was rallying behind the leadership of Mr Hakainde, hence their endorsement for him for 2016 and beyond.
      ….
      ….
      Ninjala iyi, politics of the belly. I hope HH is also sharp enough not to keep spending on these useless people who don’t even help him that much during campaigns! Maybe Garry Nkombo was right when he said Zambia is full of id!ots! Could it be that his President is one of those id!ots who can’t see that they will never win?

  3. Lungu’s new friend is now a Lebanese called Fawaz. He is the king of Jerabos, (Copper thieves).

    Mar 25, 1998: Lusaka magistrate’s court issues a warrant for the arrest of a Lebanese businessman Shawi Fawaz, who is facing various counts of unlawful exportation of illegal drugs.

    In the 1989, he was deported from Zambia due to his criminal activities but the court allowed him back in the country after he bribed his way back into the country and arguing that he was Zambian by birth.

    In 1994, Fawaz with Prosper Chelela was sentenced to 20 years in prison with hard labour for murdering a person named as Grant Kolala. The deceased was discovered dead behind the steering wheel of fiat motor vehicle, which was in a ditch by the side of the road in Lusaka.

    • In 2006, Fawaz was arrested and jointly charged with Kelvin Katambika for aggravated robbery of a BMW X5 then valued at K300 million, belonging to Henry Kapoko.

      2007, arrested again on charges of aggravated robbery and one of conspiracy to murder.

      Currently, he is involved in a war with Euro Africa over the Kalengwa mine in Mufumbwe.

      He has now gone political and he has just managed to get into State House.

  4. We are still rally behind HH.You are my man.2016 we be there for you.United we stand divided we fall.As upnd lets us be united till the end.

    • North Western Rhodesia invites the country mates from North Eastern Rhodesia to abandon their tribalism and for once VOTE for a NWR into State House.

      Until NER changes its tribalism, we of NWR shall find ways to eject these economic refugees from our mines in Solwezi, and lambaland. Leave Masebo’s soli land and mapatizya gemstone mines.

  5. Spacecraft HH just flew very close to planet Zambia and he’ll surely make a successful landing on planet Zed in 2016.

    Feb2015 was just a fly-by to scout for a good landing spot.

  6. VIVA HH
    VIVA UPND

    WE KNOW THEY STOLE YOUR VOTES, BUT GOD IS IN CONTROL
    which PART OF ZAMBIA CANNOT BE REACHED IN ONE WEEK AND BESIDES HELICOPTERS WERE BEING USED.

    VIVA HH

  7. Why is the Lungu camp always afraid of HH?Whenever his name is uttered, you see a flurry of negative comments from the cadres. Whether PF like or not, HH will keep on standing as it is his right according to the UPND constitution. I think it is good for democracy in the country. Sata stood 4 times and no one had a problem.HH is a young man so PF get used to the idea of HH always being in your face. Lets see what kaminamisa will do in state house. He is already bangling on the constitution which will go against him in 2016. The wirsky is alreay taking its toll in state house.

    • It is historical as much as it is present reality of self preservation.

      HH is from North Western Rhodesia which was merged in 1911 with an impoverished North Eastern Rhodesia.

      The Northerners knew that to survive they had to by hook and crook to hang onto the treasury as their region produced nothing of noteworth.

      Their forerunner KK introduced a moto of ‘One Zambia, One Nation’ to get those of NWR to agree to have their poor countrymates from NER to live comfortably. This has continued till the recent awakening of the NWR to the plunder and corruption of NER.

      What is at stake is the continued control of the resources of NWR by those from NER. They have nothing in their portion of the country.

  8. HH alemoneka kwati nabaila. How do you endorse someone who has failed the people? Kindly find another candidate for your party UPND to move foward or else you are not going anywhere!!

    • UPND can not die. Its a rich party with a rich background. We know where this party is coming from. If it means remaining in opposite for ever, be it so. Tribal remarks against HH and UPND wont take you anywhere and you will not succeed. Its unfortunate that some chaps in this country think that some tribes are more superior than others. HH for life whether lose or win.

    • We have moved from 18% of the vote to 47% of the vote–you better believe we are going places! VIVA HH!! VIVA UPND!

    • HH long live. Let’s shame the tribalists when your time comes. God will one day pay back those who hate Tongas wish passion. TONGAS are also human beings be warned that if we bring ourselves to your low level of mentality this country could go on fire. I beg you to stop this stupid tribal nosence.

  9. There goes the ingombe illede party led by their semi-god. This time let even more of your cattle endorse this pathetic and shameless tribalist

  10. This ‘endorsing’ is what led to confusion in the P.F. The UPND should not follow suit. If you are going to the convention, just do so quietly. Any wrangles or slight weakness shown will not help you AT ALL. 18 months is a very short time.

  11. The struggle continues until HH leads Zambia. Like freedom fighters, we shall not give up…

    Those who stole your results we be accounted when the Lord allows it.

    God bless HH.

    • A lesson for free to HH and UPND, please learn from MMD and PF. When FTJ time came he handed over presidency LPM, then RB all from different tribes and region.
      The victory of PF is the shift of power from Northern to Eastern Province.
      UNIP
      1. KK from Muchinga

      MMD
      1. FTJ from Luapula
      2. LPM from Central
      3. RB from Eastern

      PF
      1. MCS from Muchinga
      2. ECL from Eastern

      UPND

      1. AM from Southern
      2. HH from Southern

  12. All this talk of dropping President Hichilema comes from detractors who can see that he poses a real threat to the shambolic government on tap–destiny can only be delayed, but never denied. Viva UPND! VIVA HH!!

  13. Please napapata let us have some breathing space. Not again…….. There has been so much drama and confusion in the country for the past three months. Please we want to focus on other things.

  14. @B R Mumba, Sr…. Please stop talking nonsense here. If you hate HH by virtue of him being a tonga just say so. How many politicians from KK, FTJ, LPM, RB, MS and today EL offered solutions before they became presidents. None I believe. If you’re so much in love with EL it doesn’t mean that you can’t be objective. Otherwise this country has to find ways of healing itself and that kind of talk will not add value to the cause. We should learn to critic issues and respect our fellow countrymen regardless of ethnicity.

    • ”He is not in politics for money but as a missionary to redeem Zambias economy” interesting indeed, how can you redeem the economy of people that do not want you? HH Want to impose himself on us , he want to redeem us when we do not to be redeemed by him? UPND is tribal , HH will never be president unless he denounce tribalism in his part other wise he will still lose the 2016 elections, just watch the space.

    • YEH! IT’S TRUE BEMBAS ARE THE WORST TRIBAL. THEY VOTED FOR EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU BECAUSE HE IS BEMBA. THEY ARE TERIBLE.

    • @ 20 Kay

      On the contrary, Bemba tribalism differs from Tonga tribalism. While tribal, Bembas have been able to embrace other tribes. So far, we haven’t had a single Bemba president. Tongas on the other hand, have not been able to embrace any other tribe, not even their Bantu-Botatwe siblings, the Ilas and the Lenjes.

      Had they embraced the Ilas, Mainza Chona would not have formed UNIP, a rival party to ANC and align himself with Kaunda to fight against Nkumbula, an Ila. Secondly, had they embraced the Lenjes, Mazoka would not have rebuffed Mwanawasa when he invited him to join him in government. Saki, a Lozi, could have taken over from Mazoka, but the Tongas refused, insisting instead that only a “Tonga could take over from Mazoka. Who is more tribal, Bembas or Tongas?

  15. People talking about tribal voting do not generalize.
    Presidential candidates who come from the Northern region:
    1.Sinkamba of green party
    2. David Chanda of the 4R Party
    3. Edith Nawakwi of FDD
    4. Nervous Mumba of MMD
    5. Elias Chipimo Junior of NAREP
    All the votes for these five candidates put together from the northern region were less than the votes HH got in Luapula, Muchinga and Northern Provinces. Sondonshi who comes from N. Western province got less votes than both HH and Lungu. Failed politicians always want to ride on tribal division. Please stop the nonsense!! Especially you who call yourselves Christians

  16. I also endorse HH for 2016 so that he loses terribly for the fifth straight time. Your HH is going to lose come 2016 coz Zambians will vote in the spirit of Southerners- Nega Nega formula.

    Peace and Prosperity to Mother Zambia.

  17. Look at that picture, its like the freemanson looks blackish almost turning into a chi snake look at that tongue protruding he is about to manifest kabili mission failed to lead and induce bad spirits into zambia as per convent agreement under the water, but will always scatter the mansons by fire. Come 2016 you will be scatterd again better leave the manson man enjoy at the mansonry work not standing anso mu 2016. This time strong holds for Pf now will vote numbers b’coz its a lesson from the Tonga’s tribal voting style. This Aisha alimbe

  18. I am now addressing LT, please i always recommend the way you covered the 2015 elections – even though one could not help but see that you were leaning on EL side. however, your continued use of this picture of HH is not in good faith. i advise that you stop it hence forth. you are the only reliable source of information for me in Zambia at the moment. i signed out of ZWD and Zambian Reports because of the blatant exposure of who they support. yes you may not like HH and UPND but here is the gist of the matter – he has a following and constituent that contributes on LT. please be fair. i may be accusing you of wrong doing when in fact you are innocent. if that is the case forgive me. but if on the other hand i am right, please heed to to this friendly advice. you always listen. Thanks LT

    • But the picture shows the true colors of HH. RED is his true color for him.

      Do you really want to run away from the truth?

    • THAT IS PICTURE OF THE YEAR AND THIS IS HOW HH WOULD HAVE TRANSFORMED INTO HAD HE WON THE THE ELECTION. THAT IS THE TRUE HH. IN FACT THAT IS HIS SMILE.

    • But thats the picture of your semi-god HH. What wrong has LT done. Really you have nothing to talk about. LT please use the picture as many times as you want.

  19. HH=Loss
    HH=Loss
    HH=Loss
    HH=Loss

    I have got lots of Tonga Friends, some of whom pretty smart.

    But how do you repeat a losing formula like this.

    If you jump into a Livingstone bus and the bus directs you to Mumbwa for four consecutive times. What makes you think its truly destined for Livingstone for the fifth time?

  20. Zambians should always allow other to changes. God always provide a moments in life just as he did to Saul who later became Paul. For those who knew our president as drunkered will be shocked, it will be them that will remain in the act and those who perceived HH as a Freemasons will also be shocked because the man will be a living testimonies to others who will remain in the cult. God always provide a point of return in life unless you continue insulting the holy spirit.

  21. Bembas are always afraid of their own shadows. Whether you hide your identity or not all those making negative and tribalistic remarks about others are all bembas. They think they would be treated the same way as they have been treating others once a tonga man ascends to presidency.

    If you continue in this path of accusing innocent people of being tribal you will die of hunger, if the accused get agitated up to their guts, as their is nothing in the North-eastern rhodesia to be proud of.

    And sadly enough it seems this propaganda against Tongas is being received well by our gullible bembas. The chief engineers of this propaganda, albiet they don’t realise, are no other than M’membe, “Father” Bwalya, Emmanuel Mwamba and Mumbi Phiri.

    Bemba tribalism is their for all to see.

  22. ZAMBIA SHALL SOON BE FREE FROM THESE ECONOMIC FOES. MANY PEOPLE FEAR FOR A TONGA TO BE PRESIDENT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT HE WILL COME TO CLEAN OUR COUNTRY OF THIS DEADLY CORRUPTION AND LOOTING PERPETRATED BY A FEW GREEDY CREATURES! UPND AND ZAMBIA WILL FIELD IN HH FOR OUR 2016 GENERAL ELECTIONS. VIVA HH VIVA! VIVA UPND VIVA! THIS IS A BATTLE FIELD.

  23. HH is scared of their party convention to elect a new leader in the party hence claims that the votes were stolen so that no one from UPND can challenge him and therefore he has or will sponsor his carders to start endorsing him for the 2016 elections.

  24. go WITH A BIT OF HONOR . This time IT WILL BE BARE KNACLES. YOU Wept this time you cry aloud like a real under 5 when injected at the clinic

  25. UPND IS STUCK WITH HH. SINCE THEY BELIEVE IN “UPND CAN ONLY BE RULED BY A TONGA” IF THEY REMOVE HH THEY HAVE TO REPLACE HIM WITH A TONGA. AT THE MOMENT THEY HAVE A TRIBAL TAG. THEY FEAR THAT IF THEY REMOVE HIM AND REPLACE HIM WITH ANOTHER TONGA THEN VOTERS WILL FOR SURE HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE AND PROOF THAT UPND IS FOR TONGAS IN TERMS OF PRESIDENCY.
    THE FACT THAT UPND DID BETTER THESE ELECTIONS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT THEY WILL DO EVEN BETTER IN 2016. MMD DID BETTER IN KASENENGWA JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO. BUT IN THESE ELECTIONS MMD WAS REJECTED. PF ITSELF DID MUCH BETTER IN 2011, BUT IN THESE ELECTIONS THEY PERFORMED POORLY. WITH ALL THE ARMUNITION AT HAND, PF WILL CRUSH UPND IN 2016. UPND HAS NO STRATEGY FOR 2016 SINCE THEY ONLY ATTRIBUTE THEIR LOSS IN THE LAST ELECTIONS TO RIGGING BY ECZ.

  26. Northerners, easterners, luapulas and muchingas will always be superior no question about it because they have dominated Zambian politics for 50 Years. And will continue to rule Zambia for many more centuries to come.

    • @33 Moze or is it Monze.

      Never cheat yourself my friend even in Nigeria the Yurobas and the Igbus ve been both at the helm of Nigerian Politics they ‘indirectly’ rotate the presidency Obasanjo is Yurroba and Goodluck is frm anither tribe. So NEVER CHEAT YOURSELF tht ONLY ONE TRIBE RULES a country its never tht way my friend.

      BEMBA’s #1 enemy r Tongaz and Tonga’s #1 enemy r Bembas the earlier you accept ths the better.

  27. This tribal talk is really getting out of hand. Being a son of that province, we shall soon come up with a master plan on what we shall call operation resistance. Under this plan we shall have a number of initiatives as follows:

    1. We shall create 3 major milling companies, in L’stone, Choma and Mazabuka under Southern Cooperative.

    2. All the maize from Southern will be supplied to this cooperative and zero to FRA.

    3. Mealie meal will be cheaper in Southern and Southerners will only consume products produced by the cooperative including cooking oil and other products. Profit made will be distributed to the council as donations to make sure we pay zero taxes to PF.

    3. We shall dam Zambezi to make sure we trap water for irrigation to make sure we can survive during draught…

  28. Monze reason being that they are flexible, able to mingle easily with any one, ability to network and settle anywhere and reproduce

  29. My advise is that HH has tried his best. It is possible that he was never meant to be the President. Imagine, he had what it takes to be the President this time around. The overwhelming support from Southern plus Western and N/western, he fails. Begin to ask yourselves is this man man ordained to be the President? Put someone there and you will be amazed how he goes through. Ladies and gentlemen the fact that he he has been attempted these 4 times may not necessary mean he was destinied to be. Look at EL, one attempt. It was meant to be despite us not liking him. Be BORED enough UPND Executive and say lets change.

  30. 4. We shall only Vote for MPs and Councilors under UPND and zero vote for presidency as UPND will stop sponsoring a presidential candidate hence we shall have nothing to do with a PF president or any other party candidate.

    5. This is going to be our protest because it is nonsense to accuse us of being tribal when those accusing us are the worst tribalist. How do you explain the foolish thoughts that some tribes entertain in the heads that a Tonga can never be president? It means they think they are more superior than us. I thank God that whichever institution I have been, I have found that 30% if not more will be Tongas, ZCAS, ZICA where I am a senior member, LAZ, UNZA, CBU and even doctors at Ridgeway Campus. You can’t wish us away fortunately.

    • Rubbishly dull rants from a loser. Shame on you calling yourself an educated person and yet so backward in the internal head.

    • Liar those institutions are not tonga dominated your mind is polluted. The only thing I can agree with you is that when a tonga is incharge he/she will bring their relatives around and that does not make you the majority but shows however untrustworthy you are.

    • Tongas are tribal, KK had to appoint the Mumpashya commission to investigate the tribalism in Zambia Railways then. Mazoka turned Anglo American offices at 74 independence avenue as Monze land with tonga as official language.

    Superiority is associated with quality and not with quantity. It is not correct to argue that this family of 10 is superior to that of 4 because of numerical differences. Whilst its possible for a family of 4 to be superior over 4 it is also possible the other way round depending on criteria used!

  32. I HAVE NO TRIBAL INCLINATION. IN FACT IF YOU KNOW ME PERSONALLY YOU WILL AGREE WITH ME. WE HAVE ALL SORTS OF NAMES IN OUR FAMILY.

    BUT, THE FACT IS OUR TONGA BROTHERS CAN NEVER CHANGE TO A NONE UPND PRESIDENT. THIS IS BECAUSE AND IT’S A FACT THAT NO TONGA CAN VOTE FOR A NON TONGA. WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT THAT WOULD BE THE END OF THE ONLY TONGA PARTY IN THE COUNTRY. ALSO, THAT WOULD PLAINLY PROVE THAT TONGAS CAN ONLY VOTE FOR A TONGA- TRIBAL IN SHORT. NOT ALL TONGAS ARE TRIBAL BUT THE MAJORITY ARE. ZAMBIANS REGARDLESS OF TRIBE IN OTHER PROVINCES VOTE FOR EVEN TONGAS AND THIS CAN BE PROVED. BUT TONGAS KEEP ON SETTING THE TRIBAL TREND AND 2016 IT WILL MASSIVELY BACKFIRE AGAINST THEM. BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE BEEN MASSIVE EDUCATED TO BE TRIBAL.

    • They do not even care. They are able to feed themselves and the whole country. They can even remain in opposition forever and continue voting for UPND.

  33. Problem with HH is he always sets a tone for wrong things. First it was the tribal thing, now he is the first loser to accuse ECZ of stealing votes. Imagine out of all stakeholders, he is the only one who saw the stealing. Not even his Muvi TV saw the stealing.

  34. Mwebantu…HH teti awine. He will loose terribly again in 2016. ECL with govt machinery….mubebepefye. Try cornman Mweetwa.

    • What you are saying is that North Eastern Rhodesia will not vote HH.

      So be it…just like Democrat states do not expect a Tea Party (Republican) votes, we of North Western Rhodesia shall continue pushing for our dream for this country we were forced to join in 1911 and where we have absolutely no benefit but to share our resources with the poor part of Zambia; North Eastern Rhodesia.

      It may not be in our life time but we have a dream that one day a citizen of North Western Rhodesia will arise to stop the corruption and moral decay brewed by the Northern provinces.

      We shall never be moved nor swayed because we are the owners of Zambia’s wealth.

      How much do the northern provinces contribute to Zambia’s GDP? Cassava?

  35. I don’t believe in the bullshit that UPND has improved in 2015. if there has been any increase its just marginal. to me he has not. My educated analysis is that those of us in the Tonga land voted more than the PF in there stronghold. My worry is what happens when the turn out increases in the PF stronghold. We will be white washed. Maybe we need to change our strategy. the upnd constitution does not allow HH to stand again. if he stands again he will be violating the upnd constitution.
    People will think he maybe manipulating even the Zambian constitution.

    viva UPND. HH rest

    • @ Watcherman
      What is wrong with your memory? While Garry Nkombo would have been suitable (being Tonga of course) to take over from the other Tonga guy, he still wouldn’t perform any better. What with the stup!d vibe of calling Zambians id!ots? It would really be stup!d to vote for him because that would confirm his statement about Zambians!

  36. Well, well, well, another show of tribalism? Am not too sure, maybe my memory doesn’t serve me right….isn’t that the reason you guys lost?

  37. Samalat, you uneducated fellas, you don’t see beyond your stinking nose. Zambia will never split. Those minerals and mines you are talking about were discovered by non Kaondes, non Lundas, non kachokwes etc. You will cry until you stop this hate you have for Bembas. That is why God does not give you leadership from that side bcoz he knows that you hate other tribes. Don’t include the lambas in your stup!d hate comments bcoz lambas are not stingy like you. All Zambians worked on the CB and the lambas never complained. The fact is that God will appoint leaders. So in your small brain you think it’s the tribes from NW who have never settled elsewhere? Besides who discovered those mines? So just tell you relatives to get a good education so that the mines can employ them. Kkkkkk

  38. HH you are the Man. You have really shaken PF and they are dead scared of you. Look at the improvement that you made. You will surely be the President in 2016. The PF guys are in government but you actually won the election though they had to steal it since they are thieves by inclination and or birth. However you almost got the same numbers even after the theft. The move you are about to make is well encouraged. Put everything well in place. Advocate for a good voting system now so that it will be impossible for the thieves to strike again. Ensure you touch all provinces in the country. We love you. We will be very happy Zambians to be under your presidency. Those that are happy now are those that are part of the thieves. As Zambians we want proper develop and not the mediocre type.

  39. @ 20 Kay

    Kay you are wrong. Bembas are not as tribal as the Tongas. While tribal, Bembas have been able to embrace other tribes. So far, we haven’t had a single Bemba president. Tongas on the other hand, have not been able to embrace any other tribe, not even their Bantu-Botatwe siblings, the Ilas and the Lenjes.

    Had they embraced the Ilas, Mainza Chona would not have formed UNIP, a rival party to ANC and align himself with Kaunda to fight against Nkumbula, an Ila. Secondly, had they embraced the Lenjes, Mazoka would not have rebuffed Mwanawasa when he invited him to join him in government. Saki, a Lozi, could have taken over from Mazoka, but the Tongas refused, insisting instead that only a “Tonga could take over from Mazoka. Who is more tribal, Bembas or Tongas?

  40. I keep hearing that pf stole the votes but no figures, kaili tell us your findings ba csi – upnd

    So southern province ECZ didnt rig

    But loosers are problem ala

  41. Dear My fellow Zambians! Politics of hate will not take us anyway, we should amd must swallow our pride and soldier on as one country. Demonizing HH will not bring bread and butter on our tables, the fact is we all have relatives who in one way or the other fail to receive quality education/ health care. it is this cancer of poverty we should fight and demean. HH has all the qualities that describes him as good and industrious leader Zambia as a country need. When i hear of stories calling we people of south Zambia as tribalists, it hurts me when history speaks to itself that it was money from the tongas that made Simon mwansa kapwepwe a bemba go for a training in Italy. worst still tongas have allowed other tribes to become headmen in southern province, is that what you tribalism?

  42. This reminds me of UNIP and Kaunda days when the vigilante will crush anyone who tries to challenge Kaunda. This is very much alive in UPND. I imagine suppose someone wanted to opposed HH, how does he or she can do it?

  43. Sorry friends EL will go up to 2021. We shall use Nega Nega formula this time. We have seven provinces v 3. it be a disaster this time. Mwaufwa!

  44. Again you have endorsed HH as Moses wanomba! If you have read the Bible carefully Moses did not reach the promised land, hence HH as Moses will never reach the promised land as president. UPND forget to have HH as president of Zambia!!!

  45. If you guys in UPND are serious about winning,then please replace tribal HH!!!he failed to defeat a disjointed PF now,then what of in 2016 when Edgar Lungu will be in power using Govnt machinery,high turn out in PF strongholds,all farmers paid on time,councillors and MPs seriously campaigning on the ground to retain their seats,regional voting type,new and younger voters to vote too,etc!!!with all these factors on board,HH wont be anywhere near PF.he will be defeated pants down for the 5th time!!!SO PLEASE TRY A NON TONGA AND NOT HH!!!UPND WILL ADOPT HH AT THEIR OWN PERIL!!!THIS MAN IS NOT LOVED BY MAJORITY ZAMBIANS!!!LOOK AT HOW PEOPLE CELEBRATED NAKED ON STREETS EDGAR LUNGU’S VICTORY,THAT SPEAKS VOLUME!!!

  46. I think “UPND mwalibelelo kulusa!!!”HH again? Most voters are saying that in 2016,they will vote the tonga way,meaning giving their party more than 90%!!so where will this leave your tribal HH?dont cheat yourselves,in 2016 PF will do very well.am pretty sure that almost all MP seats in Eastern, Lusaka,Central,Copperbelt,Luapula,Northen, and Muchinga will be won by PF!!!EDGAR LUNGU SO FAR IS THE DARLING OF MASS VOTERS!!!SO HH WONT BE A FACTOR IN 2016,MARK MY WORDS!!PF WILL WIN JUST AFTER ANNOUNCING RESULTS FROM 100 CONSTITUENCIES!!!

  47. This distaste is common among people who’ve enjoyed success outside of politics, in academia or journalism or business, and who go into politics with the reasonable assumption that the prestige they achieved in their former profession should automatically transfer into politics. It doesn’t. People who think they’re entitled to standing—because they are brainy, rich, or famous—almost always lose. They forget you earn your standing, you are not entitled to it. That’s the best thing about democracy, the single reason why we’re not yet entirely governed by wealthy oligarchs.

    • @ 59 Inge wolf

      That is profound. It was the criterion used in the selection of HH as the ideal person to replace Mazoka and still the prevailing perspective. People seem less mindful of his political acumen. They lean on his business acumen instead.

  48. “GOD often DELAYS IN ANSWERING PRAYER. We have several instances of this in sacred Scripture. Jacob did not get the blessing from the angel until near the dawn of day—he had to wrestle all night for it. The poor woman of Syrophenicia was answered not a word for a long while. Paul besought the Lord thrice that “the thorn in the flesh” might be taken from him, and he received no assurance that it should be taken away, but instead thereof a promise that God’s grace should be sufficient for him. If thou hast been knocking at the gate of mercy, and hast received no answer, shall I tell thee why the mighty Maker hath not opened the door and let thee in? Our Father has reasons peculiar to Himself for thus keeping us waiting. Sometimes it is to show His power and His sovereignty, that men may…

  49. know that Jehovah has a right to give or to withhold. More frequently the delay is for our profit. Thou art perhaps kept waiting in order that thy desires may be more fervent. God knows that delay will quicken and increase desire, and that if He keeps thee waiting thou wilt see thy necessity more clearly, and wilt seek more earnestly; and that thou wilt prize the mercy all the more for its long tarrying. There may also be something wrong in thee which has need to be removed, before the joy of the Lord is given. Perhaps thy views of the Gospel plan are confused, or thou mayest be placing some little reliance on thyself, instead of trusting simply and entirely to the Lord Jesus. Or, God makes thee tarry awhile that He may the more fully display the riches of His grace to thee at last. Thy…

  50. …prayers are all filed in heaven, and if not immediately answered they are certainly not forgotten, but in a little while shall be fulfilled to thy delight and satisfaction. Let not despair make thee silent, but continue instant in earnest supplication.”

  51. UPND cannot get rid of HH becoz he is the one with the money and has contacts with people with money.

    So if HH goes who replaces him? GBM?

    • @ 60 Umublacks

      Rather, it is the chicken and egg story – which one comes first? If having a fat purse were the thing, then neither Barrack Obama nor Michael Sata would have made it to the presidency of their respective countries. The one defining common denominator of the duo was their political acumen. Money jumped on their bandwagons when it saw that they were headed to stardom. Money always does that for any star.

      Let UPND get a really good politician, there will be no shortage of money. As things now stand, UPND is a serious financial drain on HH and his resources. For him, politics is an investment not worthy undertaking. He is such an icon in business. I hate to see him being so denuded by politics.

  52. It’s not that people hate HH, nor that they hate the Tonga people. That is a fallacy. Tongas are the most loving and lovable people on the face of the earth! Rather, it is Tonga tribalism or the resemblance of it, to which people are repulsive.

    The argument that Bembas are tribal too, as a justification for Tonga tribalism, does not cut it. You never correct a wrong with yet another wrong. That should not be the Tonga way of resolving issues. Tongas are very smart people. They should know better than that. And yet that argument seems to persist!

  53. Oh here we go again!

    In any case has ECZ opened up Candidate selections for 2016? Are General Election campaigns for 2016 open officially.

    If someone says UPND is a bunch of criminals who are a threat to Zambian Stability, are they wrong? Look at this disorganised nonsense. Wait until the gov’t finishes it’s term and current parliament is dissolved.

    Quote,’“The PF appointing the old lady, Wina” is that not Agist and discrimination on grounds of Age? Western, Southern Provinces are the most discriminating/ tribal racists in Zambia. We need to diffuse this situation.

    Zambia has too many ignorant opposition parties in the political arena. Problem is, we are told HH is educated and yet clearly he is just an exceptionally confused individual.

  54. HH won the by-election but his votes were stolen. This means higher percentage of people gave his a vote at the polls. And those people’s demands were taken away from them by the Panga Family party.

    Non the less, it is difficult for me to understand how a normal thinking human being would cast his/her vote for a party that has held them captive for the past three years. People have been complaining about so many factors that were affecting their socio-economic well-being: removal of subsidies; wage freeze; cadres violence in communities; high food prices; high fuel prices and extreme poverty that exists in parts of Zambia. I don’t blame those foreigners and few intelligent locals who referred to the voters as stupid, or imbeciles. Imbecility to the extreme. Prozac anybody???

  55. Soldier on HH. This is the right time to start your campaigns for 2016. My advice for you is to concentrate more in LUAPULA, NORTHERN and EASTERN provinces. These are areas which will make you win the election in 2016. Furthermore, go in a pact with Nawakwi (Vice President) and Nevers Mumba (Foreign Affairs) if possible.
