HAKAINDE HICHILEMA’S CONDUCT AT HEROES STADIUM BEHAVIOR A MORAL DELUGE AS HE FAILED TO RECOGNIZE THE PRESENCE OF HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU – ISSUED BY SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON FOR PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE

LUSAKA, APRIL 25, 2015 — Zambians must condemn United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Mr. Hakainde Hichilema’s refusal to recognize the presence of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu today at Heroes Stadium where Seventh Day Adventist members gathered in celebrating 1 million church membership in Zambia.

Political maturity demands statesmanship and rising above pettiness, a test Mr. Hichilema failed to pass with his conduct. Zambians must be worried that Mr. Hichilema seems to be the only citizen who has refused to accept that President Lungu was given the mandate to rule Zambia on 20th January 2015, no wonder even his analysis of the President’s first 90 days in office is pregnant with envy and jealousy.

Zambians should worry that Mr. Hichilema he has arrogated to himself as the source of all knowledge and wisdom. In regard, we are not surprised that he does not see anything positive about President Lungu’s administration.

Zambians therefore do not deserve such moral slippage from Mr. Hichilema which has sadly become a deluge. His latest behaviour therefore exposes the arrogance that Zambians have always feared, resulting in his four (4) consecutive losses. Zambians have continued to demand that politicians will rise above personal differences especially during such significant religious events and this is the opportunity the SDA Church event provided for Zambia, today.

PF therefore calls on Mr. Hichilema to reflect on his conduct of today and discern correctly the times Zambia is living in. Zambians have resolved to live in unity, harmony, reconciliation and forgiveness.

This is what President Lungu has continued to preach, including hope and aspiration for the vast majority of Zambians. It is therefore up to Mr. Hichilema to rise to the challenge and cease conveying messages of discontent and disunion. Surely, his behaviour of today was not just any other moral slippage but a deluge.

Vice Chairperson: PF Media and Publicity Committee

    • Those that are sucking up to Lungu and kneeling before him at every opportunity are hungry, desperate crooks looking for favours from him for having supported his campaign

    • HH is giving SDA a bad name. He should do such things away from the SDA Church programs before people begin to associate the church with tribalism especially that it’s membership is mostly Tongas. There is a difference between someone who is truly a Christian at heart and one who acts like a Christian, you see them by their fruit.

    • Bitterness, envy and jealous constitute a dangerous spirit of the dark world societies individual choose to subscribe to. Unfortunately, HH has steadfastly continued to prove it beyond any doubt that he belongs there. He is a disaffected opponent over-consumed by bitterness other than national interest and leadership character. The more he brings out his unorthodox behavior, the more he consolidates a public perception that he is a sly political opportunist masquerading as idealist.

    • Historically, in monarchies, subjects kneel to show their subservience to someone of a higher status – a king, nobleman, emperor, or tsar. In feudal times, peasants and serfs bowed to the lords of the estates. Kneeling is a disciplinary measure in prisons and detainment facilities. This method was used in concentration camps during World War II to subdue prisoners.

      These examples all have one thing in common – genuflection has always been a display that meant one person was acknowledging the superiority of another. In many religions, a supplicant voluntarily kneels to show reverence to God. Subjects, prisoners, and slaves bow down to authority figures.

      A free man, woman, or child should never be compelled to display submission in this manner.

    • Ba PF, so you were waiting for HH to kneel before Lungu so that you could embarrass him the same way you are trying to embarrass Maureen Mwanawasa? Sorry bane, HH is too sharp to fall for such primitive tactics! If Lungu wanted to show statesmanship and the so called humility and humbleness, he could have taken the initiative to go and greed HH, that’s what real politicians like Sata would have done.

    • As a sign of mutual respect, the president should not sit but stand to greet people. Greeting people while seated has a negative connotation. In tradition I would accept it but not in politics. Even me I wouldn’t greet his lazy behind if that’s the case.

    • HH HAS NEVER BEEN FIT FOR PRESIDENCY. NOT EVEN IN HIS PARTY PRESIDENCY. HIS PRESIDENCY IN UPND IS A TRIBALLY MANIPULATED ONE. RIGHT FROM HIS INCEPTION AS PARTY PRESIDENT HE DERIVED PLEASURE FROM TRIBAL SENTIMENTS FROM HIS TRIBAL MEMBERS OF THE PARTY AND MAJORITY TRIBAL SOUTHERN PROVINCE ZAMBIANS. HH HAS CONTINUED TO CHERISHED AND THRIVE ON TRIBAL SENTIMENTS FROM VERY SENIOR MEMBERS OF HIS UPND AND HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN OR HEARD TO CONDEMN TRIBAL SENTIMENTS. IN FACT HE MARVELS AT THOSE COMMENTS. TRIBALLY, HE HAS ULUBOLA MU BRAIN- MEANING PART OF HIS BRAIN IS TRIBALLY ROTTEN. HE WILL NEVER CHANGE. HH WILL EVER BE TRIBAL, ANGRY, BITTER, ENVIOUS, JEALOUS AND A BIG HATER. AS A PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANT HE MUST DEAL WITH HIS PART OF ROTTEN BRAIN IF EVER IT WILL BE POSSIBLE. ANYWAY, ZAMBIANS KNOW HIM.

    • Leadership is about Respect, If HH did not respect the sitting President, then he should apologize. Let him treat others the way he would want to be treated.

      HH apologize, don’t let this bring you down. Lungu is president for and Zambia has 1 president at a time. Your chance will come so be a True Leader.. as arrogance does not pay..

    • If it’s respect you want, why let young Sunday Chanda talk about HH like this? This is so shallow. And why was everybody kneeling before the president? In civilized settings, the president greets people on the way in and out whilst walking. That removes this awkward practice that makes people kneel like it’s a village.

      Why didn’t the president greet HH? Not every person who was there went and greeted the presdent so why single out HH?

    • PF shall just ignore the pompous, arrogant and self-stole HH. Work on undoing the damage Sata did to Zambian economy and politics (the very man with whom HH was ready to get to bed with) and things will be fine. In any case, Take all the progressive MMD leaders to complement the strength of PF.
      Truly speaking, I am quite impressed with President Lungu’s first 90 days, no violence, transparency even to the point that it being ridiculed by HH and his minions, tolerance of treacherous actions of state secret and insulting president by provocative statements that he gets OP briefings before President gets them etc. is a sign of a matured leader.

    • PF mediocrity at best! This was an SDA church function whose structures has a leadership above HH. HH is a congregational member and attended as a celebrant with the SDA fraternity from all over Zambia. It is being small minded to single out HH in the million! The SDA body that invited the president ran the show and HH under SDA governance may not even be near the governing conclave! It was also not Lungu’s function despite being president and coverage prominence should have focussed on the SDA function. Even where not necessary some people want to politick! By the way I too would not kneel to greet the president. That the president chooses to sit leaves no alternative than squatting for those wishing to greet him and he knows why he is doing it if not fearing to collapse!

    • @ Mr. Tembo, asks
      “Ana chita chani mabala!??”
      Answer – ‘Kulibe’.
      Its what he didn’t do because he was not invited to greet the President.
      He simply humbled himself like any other member by not simply walking up ‘uninvited’ to where his HE ECL was. This was also for security reasons. How sure could he have walked to where ECL was with his own security team without being embarrassed. Would u not have accused him of overrating himself for ‘inviting himself’ to greet ECL? Out of the millions may be including u Chanda that were there who didnt greet ECL u single out HH. He must be somebody!
      Or could it be that HH was invited to greet ECL & never accepted? Or was HH a speaker at the ocassion & never recognised HE ECL? How much apart was he from HE ECL?

    • Dear Chanda the state is paying you, only for you to be ranting about someone who has not knelt before HE. This is shocking, and it reminds me of the time Kaunda was wasting a lot of man hours in the economy by asking all business house to close the moment he was in town. What a backward way of looking at things.

    • It is not a question of kneeling, but merely recognizing the presidency. Shaking hands with the republican president is not wrong. Our leaders have to show maturity and unity. Once the electorate has made the choice, every Zambian should rally behind the president. Showing pettiness is political maturity as exhibited by Hichilema. It is shameful. He does not have to agree with Lungu, but he should recognize him and show respect for the presidency he so desperately wants.

Just because you are ever begging for jobs by kneeling to him doesn’t call for all of us to kneel before him because there is just no reason.

    • He just needed to fail to go and greet the president to underscore disdain. Where are the pictures where he is greeting the president? Even Nawakwi went to greet the president and said you do not expect the president to go to where she is to greet her. Guys, like it or not, ECL is the President of The Republic of Zambia – he holds the presidency. Mr. Hakainde’s behavior is stupid, un-presidential and damn right silly. He is not presidential material – and he needs to grow up for his own sake.

    • @ observer, don’t be vulgar for nothing. Both HH and EL went to worship their god hopefully. I am sure that EL himself is not bothered that somebody in the multitude did not greet him unless his mission was something else. You will be surprised that God did not see anything wrong with what you are complaining about. So brother, don’t sin on behalf of another individual.

Simple. Sunday or weekend Chanda, whatever his stupid name should greet EL as many times as possible because he is looking for a job. Ma rubbish.

  4. What did he do? so you wanted HH to kneel down for lungu? hahahahahahahahah i have not seen any point of saying that his bahavour towards the president is unacceptable.Why should be lungu be given red carpet treatment and excessive obeisance? This lungu is just a common mambala who gains his meals through the stealing of tax payers money!!!!!!!!

    HH knows lungu very well he knows lungu is not a president material he does not qualify for the presidency at all.Lungu has failed to vindicate himself and clearly liberate himself from this condemnation of failing to improve zambia’s economy……..

    Where is it wrong for somebody who has not insulted the president but just have not wished to bow down for him? useless analysis by a stupid lungu’s beneficiary

      If you know that HH will never be president, why do you lose sleep over him? Reading everything he is said to have said, tracking his footsteps, following him around the toilet an sh!t.

      To you HH is a loser, then leave him alone. You aren’t bothering yourself with Chipimo’s conduct or utterances, are you?

      I think you are obsessed with HH because somewhere in the recesses of your mind you know HH is a serious threat to your bread and butter. Admit it!

      He comes in and y’all are going to jail. Thieves!

Not only that, who told you that greetings is an OBLIGATION?.How many people were present on that occansion? Why sounding only one mans name? Believe me or not, we attend some occansions only by making calm ourselves. Who knows hence he was not in the mood of greeting? Why didn’t you mention anyone apart from HH. So your dream was to see HH kneeling to ECL.Vakwetu what do you realy what from HH?

  8. I thought this statement was issued by a sensible person. Kansi its Chanda? Ok why didnt Lungu go to greet Hichilema since Lungu is the servant of the people. Jesus washed the feet of his deciples even when he was greater than them. Why should it be a one way traffic at church for that matter? Wouldnt it be great to see Lungu walk and extend his hand to opposition leaders. Think of that.

  10. No wonder HH will never win an election. His supporters especially from the southern part jump to his defense even when they don’t understand the issue at hand.recognition doesn’t imply kneeling down. Ur jst twisting facts as usual. It was just a matter of greeting, even when standing straight. To the HH is a saint and can never go wrong. But the wider public is judging. Even Sata whom he is trying so hard to imitate was better on this score of interaction. Problem with HH is that he wants to play to the gallery. But the same gallery thinks this guy is a sadist who cannot even greet at a church function. You don’t expect the president to follow HH, a commoner to greet him.

    • So to you Lungu is royalty now? Lungu is as a commoner as they come. I have seen Obama, the president of the greatest country on panet earth going around greeting people. So why can’t Lungu, who is said to be humble, greet HH? From the little that I have observed HH will never get it right with PF; he sends condolences PF cadres say they are not genuine, he goes to a funeral PF cadres almost lynch him, he offers constructive criticism PF cadres say he is the wrong person to do that. Even in this case if HH had gone to kneel down before Lungu and grovel like a lapdog (the Zambian way of greeting a president) who knows some overzealous PF cadre in paramilitary unform could have done something harmful to him.

  11. Sunday Chanda yapping again. May be HH did not see ECL nowonder he did not greet him. If ECL saw HH, he would have equally walked to where HH was and greeted him. There was nothing wrong for ECL to recognise HH as well. SC is just jealous of HH achievement in life. What has sunday achieved in life? Just being a job seeker all the way, useless f00l. Leave our president HH alone.

  13. Mr. Chanda, can you PLEASE stop crapping and try to catch-up with meaning of the word “free”.
    You do not show “respect” by kneeling, actually you show your “inferiority”.
    Just check what Pope (who is the head of one billion Christians instead of couple million lackeys) does when somebody try to kneel in front of Him.
    Unfortunately Zambians have not yet understood meaning of freedom.
    Replacing colonial monarchy with home grown regime void of accountability and compliance with fundamental rights fails very short of becoming FREE.

  14. HH is petty. He Knelt before EL before, at the airport when he followed PF in receiving SATA’s body. Because he wanted political KILOMETRES then, he did it. Now, IN A CHURCH GATHERING he behaves big. Church pipo gathered to recognise God’s followers. But NO, SATANISTS has to show their behinds. HH will not be president of Zed anytime soon. After EL rules for 2 five-year terms, EASTERNERS are going to give PF presidency to a BEMBA again. Ninshi chapwa nafuti! We only need to make the North Westerners to realize they are in the wrong camp. They are the door marts among mbuyas who consider them inferior.

    The most normal thing for a President to do, is upon arrival at a function is to greet dignitaries that are before him. Thats what he does at freedom statue or airport than wait for people to approach him. That’s the right protocol believe it or not.
    EL must show respect by rising to his feet when being greeted than having people kneel down before him like he was monarchy.

  28. If you are president of the country does not mean everyone should kneel for you. If you benefit from someone you would show appreciation, if i was in the same way Lungu treated HH , i would do not even be near him, coz when he collapses they will say HH did magic and you same PF you will call him Satanist. There is nothing good in people. To obey is better than sacrifice, and as Zambians let us not just accept statements from these political parties that are baseless. Greeting Lungu or not greeting him does not change him to be lungu. So what???

    • KNEELING IS CULTURAL IN MOST AFRICAN COUNTRIES. IT IS A SIGN OF RESPECT TO ELDERS AND THOSE WITH AUTHORITY. ZAMBIANS SHOULDN’T CONFUSE KNEELING WITH WESTERN LIFE STYLE. I HAVE READ SOME BLOGGER SAYING I WESTERN COUNTRIES THEY CAN’T KNEEL FOR THE PRESIDENT/PMINISTER. THEY CAN IN THEIR OWN WESTERN WAY(S). MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY CAN RECOGNISE THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAD OF STATE AT A ANY FUNCTION. RESPECTING HEADS OF STATES OR AUTHORITIES IS THERE IN THE BIBLE. IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE TURNED INTO God THEMSELVES.

    There was no need for HH to greet the Sick Kachasu Man Lungu. Lungu should bow down before HH.

  32. According to the Natural Rule of justice, it was Lungu who was supposedto have gone to greet the great HH since Lungu is a copy cut of HH. The ‘me too’ president should have gone forward to show respect to HH since he is the source of all his ideas. The president went to Kitwe to open the Shpping Mall not knowing he was indirectly being sent by HH the Great statesman.

I am a common man, but will not kneel to any politician, will do for my chiefs and traditional elders but not even in my dreams would I ever contemplate kneeling for anybody who is a politician. I don’t depend on them for my livelihood, it is them that depend on the public purse. You can take your tradition where the sun does not reach. For you Peter, you are just a tribalist and PF stooge. You must surely have your own problems than obsessing with HH. Each time there is a posting about HH you have to comment, leave the man alone and concentrate on your thieving friends.

  35. The truth which has just emerged is that Edgar Lungu was at first not invited to attend the SDA ceremony but only buldozed his way by compelling the toothless SDA leadership to place him as their guest of honour.

    Intially te guest of honour was to be the President at the General Conference of the Seventh Day Adventist church based in America but Lungu buldozed himself forcing the president of SDA to cancil the strip to Zambia. If he attempted to come, Lungu and his peope were prepared to denie him visa entry into Zambia. The PF sees the SDA President to be sympathetic to HH hence the reason why the sick president had to attend the function despite vomiting through out the night to to swapping of HIV/AIDS drugs he is taking.

By the way HH is not a a factor in the SDA church this is an international church. Voting in Zambia is just regional and not by churches. If you didn’t the Catholic Church has a big presence in southern province but they never voted for their church mate MCS.

    The only truth is that HH did not do or say anything about Edgar Lungu and you go on and start insulting him – what gives you the authority to do that? Sunday Chanda is an example of people that were born and brought up without morals and most of those people are led by Lungu in PF.
    Sunday Chanda is an UGLY and STINKING ARSE and one of the PF thugs Lungu is using to intimidate those who dont bow to him! I am sure even Chanda’s mother is an ugly wh.ore without morals – where would her son get that behaviour?

    If Chagwa was as humble as you claim, he should have been on his feet the moment he saw Ma’am Nawakwi coming to greet him! That’s what Barack Obama does!! Very humble but yet extremely intelligent and witty!
    Be fare in your reporting..HH might just become president one of these days and what are you going to do then?? Do not be too sure that “HH will never be president!” who are you speaking for? And how come you are so sure of yourself? Have you been rigging these elections?? Never say…

  49. Edith Nawakwi is the President of FDD, an opposition political party just like HH’s and often attacks the government as an opposition political party should do but when it came to greeting the President she knelt down which is the accepted protocol. In some cultures in Zambia an elder person who is seated cannot be greeted by a young person while standing. President Lungu was seated. In Britain you have to curtsy when you greet the Queen. The British take offence when this is not observed. HH cannot be forced to greet the President but it does give the impression that he takes their political differences seriously.

    • Don’t lie, there is a difference between a president, who is a politician, and a queen who is anointed from birth. No one knees before the prime minister in the UK and no one knees before the most powerful politician on earth, president Obama….do who is Lungu for HH to knee before him?

WE MAY RESPECT HIM BECAUSE OF HIS POSITION BUT NOT TO THE EXTEND OF WORSHIPPING HIM AS YOU FELLOWS SEEM TO BE DOING.

  51. The problem with some Zambians is that they want to impose their tribal cultural norms on all Zambians. In my culture there is no kneeling before another human being except God. Colonialists used to force us to kneel before them & we fought for independence to be our own selves. where does this Chanda come from today to be Mr. Know-it-all culturally for all of us? He does not own me nor HH.

  52. At the rate this country is moving we will end up like Congo. Intellectual capacity is on the wane in Zambia.What is so special about kneeling before president Lungu? What’s the benefit? What does it solve? In civilised countries leaders stand to greet and mingle with citizens. This whole thing of a president sitting on a sofa and people kneeling before him is primitive and demeaning. It adds no value to dignified behaviour. Even in our homes when visitors walk in we stand up to greet or hug them. Zambians should start thinking progressively for once or we are doomed. Sunday Chanda is too preoccupied with HH. Almost all his statements are on HH. Why cant he for a change talk development?

  53. HH is a proud man and thinks he knows it all. Sometimes it is important to live up to the expectation of society And according to our norms and cultural standards. We cannot all be presidents at the same time, therefore HH should humble himself and recognise the incumbent while he waits for his turn. During such events it’s important to show maturity and put politics aside.

  54. It was not convenient and proper for HH to track out the PF president to greet him. EL has never been elected at party level at Mulungushi, this same el is leader of a panga violent thieving and corrupt pf. HH won the election but pf thugs/thieves stole votes. Luck that HH is peacefully minded… Why was he seated? He was supposed to greet his people to show maginanimity.

Come to think of it Lungu is supposed to be an employee of the citizenry so why should he take the pedestal for his employers to start kneeling before him? Warped thinking I must say. HH sure makes many in PF have sleepless nights that they continue hallucinating! HH since coming on the political limelight has never been heard singing self praises about his exploits including sponsoring the likes of Hapunda yet words are put into his mouth! Hate or adore him like every being he is not on the scene to please everybody as is also Lungu. Leave them do what sets them apart in their capabilities insulting won’t help anybody.

He is expected to do the same now as EL is now an elected President than that time when EL was acting. Don’t just support the foolish behaviour of the antagonistic under 5. You are just making him a political loser. You carders are the killers of hh as aspiring candidate and upnd as a party. Ubusushi pwi na pwipwipwi…ata se.

    • Yes, there might have been a plot to humiliate HH. There is no doubt now that if HH had knelt before Lungu, this same PF cadre would be shouting from the top of the mountains about how HH displayed his inferiority to Lungu. Lungu’s behaviour is deplorable, sitting down like a king, and expecting “his subjects” to come and kneel before him. How primitive is that? We are a multi “tribal” nation. Don’t bring your tribal troglodyte culture and say it is the Zambian culture.

If you are telling us that Edgar went there to show the people how great he is and that everybody should be kneeling, then he chose a wrong forum. People were busy praising God there, that was the whole essence of the event. Not for anyone to start kneeling for a human being in Gods presence and his holly ground. Let us learn to separate issues. Yes we know you are always looking for reasons to attack HH, but this one bane is a very wrong shot, HH did not err at all.
    In fact, I believe that most people including HH were happy to see Edgar there as a child of God like them and, nothing else.

As I am not aware of such a protocol I fear the same PF would have maybe blocked HH from greeting EL if he attempted to do so by making an approach. The other people like Maureen and Edith who went to greet EL have a different relationship with him

Chanda should stop encouraging this personality cult which is a sign of dictatorship.

It is like when you are driving a vehicle, it is you driving the vehicle to stop and greet someone walking on foot rather than a person walking on foot to stop and greet you.

HH was kind and knew how his supporters would interprete it and thus evaded it in a mileage seeking style. And true to his intentions, his supporters have interpreted it positively. From simple reasoning, Sunday Chanda degraded PF and its cadres. He would have left the matter to rest as it was.

  82. Hold on a minute! Are we trying to say as someone already mentioned that HH was supposed to kneel and kiss Lungu’s hand? I’m sorry I doubt I would do that either and a hand shake is more than enough and I keep moving. Someone mentioned it, Lungu is the one who is supposed to be standing not sitting down and a total disgrace and insult as it is not proper etiquette. The again he probably was going to faint and sat down to avoid another embarrassment. Acknowledgement could be a head or hand gesture and a hand shake and does not mean one has to kneel. Leave that for 1964 as times have changed and keep changing. If Lungu has no energy to stand for long periods of time, then let him go home or prescribed bed rest until he has enough energy to stand and be able greet people the formal way.

  83. So this is what this is all about. Chagwa attended the gathering to humiliate HH. Now that HH didn’t fall for it they turn that he didn’t greet EL.

    Come on let us be serious and focus on the real issues. HH talked about this blackout we are experiencing today and Govt gave it a blind eye and called him names.

    why focus on HH as a ruling party instead of the dying economy…….
