Pictures of Hakainde Hichilema’s tour and community work in Lusaka’s Linda Compound

Photo Gallery Pictures of Hakainde Hichilema's tour and community work in Lusaka's Linda...

In his continued tour to thank voters and party mobilization, UPND President Hakainde Hichilema was on Monday in Kanyama Constituency’s Linda Compound of Lusaka also doing some community work.

Mr. Hichilema, who bemoaned the levels of hunger and poverty in the country, spent the whole day with the people of Linda Compound to appreciate their daily challenges.

He reiterated the need to prioritize job creation especially for the youths in the country by promotion of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) through provision of affordable loan schemes.

The UPND leader helped in offloading a truck of mealie meal and drinks that were being offloaded into a shop much to the delight of onlookers.

Some of the small-scale traders openly wept to Mr. Hichilema as they complained about huge decline in sales and business due to harsh prevailing economic conditions.

But Mr. Hichilema told them that as a businessman himself, he fully understood the prevailing harsh economic conditions where products are even getting expired in the shelves because majority Zambians have no disposable incomes to buy.

He also spent time doing community works with people who are disabled where he was told that this group of people was being neglected by successive Governments.

Mr. Hichilema promised that once he forms Government people that are disabled will receive special packages to alleviate their suffering.

The UPND leader was particularly touched when he visited a number of households which included mama Theresa Chisenga Muyenga a visually impaired small-scale farmer, who shared the challenges she was facing in the PF government.

He concluded his community tour by addressing party officials and some of the residents.

Mr. Hichilema urged UPND leadership countrywide to embrace new members and treat everyone as equals in the party.

  1. Thats the President not ba mumbwe in statehse the 2 presidents Rupiah Lungu and Edgar Banda busy globalttrotting and summoning pipo for nothing .
    We are behind u us true pf baba frm Muchinga luapula and ku lubemba ku northern .
    To hell nabena Chipata

    • Pretending to be humble will not win you votes.

      Your callous demeanour and selfishness will always come out no matter how much you pretend to try and connect with the grassroots

      Your are just an accomplished political failure….period

    • To hell for you and your HH already you cannot stop from being regional. How do you hope to win from other provinces with such comments. remember people of Eastern province gave HH some vote.

      This shows how shallow you and your HH are in reasoning. You are always thinking in terms of being Tonga. You are such backward thinking.

      HH started miles ahead last time and still lost. We are not worried with what he is doing. He is not a politician. EL travels on national duty and HH envies him that is why he wants to be president. He shall never be because of people like you who think only in Tonga.

      Zambia made a choice and gave EL the mandate to rule. So do not insult the people of Zambia. Blame it on yourselves for being a regional party. Kick yourselves in the butt.

    • The Shepherd of people!!!
      The man of the people, he even visit the blind on Sabbath. Now HH reminds me a man called Jesus who once said “…I will die for these folk of sheep”.

    • “QUALITY IS NOT AN ACT, IT IS A HABIT”- HE ACTED ON THAT OCCASION BUT WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS HE KNOWN TO BE E.G BY HIS WIFE AND THOSE CLOSE TO HIM FOR MANY YEARS? THAT IS HIS QUALITY/QUALITIES. NOT A SINGLE 1 OR 2 DAY ACT..

    • Proverbs :

      •Nyanja
      ?The person who does not hear learns when the axe is in his head
      ?If you are ugly, know how to dance.

      •Lozi
      ?One finger cannot crush a louse.
      ?A cow does not find its own horns heavy.

    • Bitterness. It makes me smile that president Lungu and my Aunt Bo Inonge are ruling are making the likes of you to squirm with envy. God raises the weak to confound the proud. So you are the one upset and it is funny.

      Viva President Nawakwi.

  2. HH has no charisma. He is too detached from the average Zambian. This is a good start though. He needs to learn some other languages too such that when he stands on the podium in Eastern province or Luapula or Chinsali, he can confidently express himself in the local language. Make the crowd feel like you are one of them. Communication is everything.

    • @William Tekere Banda,
      Obviously you are expressing your personal assumption which does not represent what actually happened on the ground.

    • You are only good at reading between the legs. You cant read between the lines. How many languages did Sata speak apart from Bemba? How many languages does Edgar speak? Look, you are a lost soul. HH speaks Nyanja, Tonga, Lenje fluently. Your Edgar Chagwa Lungu cant even utter a word in Nyanja and yet its his tribe!

    • Picture number 2. HH Fails to greet The disabled. OH Sorry, this is the president of the party that says they don’t force to greet. I get it now

    • And what about you William? Unless you are lame, you point a finger at someone three are pointing at you!

  3. Now HH has realised he needs to connect with the average zambian,had he done so a long time ago things would have been different. I have always said the chap is too self centered. Now let him go back and reintroduce the structure Mazoka was using that too into account all Zambians not only Tongas

  4. When you give so that the whole world can see it’s worthless.giving carries more weight when there are no cameras but people report about it.he has already been paid in full as the bible would say.

    • The question you should ask yourself is:- Do you KNOW how much he has given WITHOUT cameras? The answer is you definitely do not know. So your quoting of scripture to make HH look bad only backfires on people like you. Trust me, if you knew and meant well, you would not have put this comment.

    • Cactus don’t be naive.wisdom will make you see through everything .all that this dude did was for political mileage .these are people who expect something in return.how many have reported anything in secret.the scripture always makes people uncomfortable because ,it’s the truth.

    • Please enlighten us, what successful businesses and joint ventures did late Sata initiate and run and employed people?

    • Copying everything that Sata did? Would you not be disappointed that Edgar is not copying everything Sata though he vowed to keep the Sata touch burning?

      Who, between the two would you trust?

    • @Mze Funny you should say “Copying everything Sata did” because by that statement you imply that what the late president (may he rest in peace) did was a good thing.
      By that extension shouldn’t anyone who means well for his people copy that which you concede was good? I mean wasn’t President Lungu in fact elected because he pledged to carry forward that same good?
      Or are you saying the good is in fact only good when done by some and not others?

      If my memory serves me right of all the politicians in our country, it was Mr Hichilema that the President chose to partner with in a Pact even if it didn’t last long. Could it be that he saw something in him then that was worth taking on board?
      Just thinking.

  5. Fellow Zambians let us appreciate any good done by the ruling party or opposition. Here, HH has demonstrated that he is a servant leader. How many Zambian leaders have done what he is doing? This HH guy can turn Zambia’s around if elected in 2016 than Changwa who shows false humility by folding hands and is either involved or condoning corruption

  6. Reading the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and Sadducee in the Bible makes a strong metaphor to our opposition leade, HH is an epitome of that hypocrisy!

    • Hypocrisy in what sense exactly? Please enlighten us. You are quoting scripture, so its better be a good one, unless you do not comprehend whose waters you are warding in right now.

    • The same Bible you are using so selectively says “Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities” (Mt 25: 23)
      If you cannot identify and spend even just an hour of your time with those in need when you don’t have power and responsibility, you most certainly are never going to identify with them when you have everything.

  7. Sata was Sata and not this dull tonga man!!wait for 2016 results from those same areas he is visiting!!PF will come up first,i rest my case!!!

    • How do you define “dull”?

      Let’s line you all up:

      Sata, eddy, HH

      If business acumen was something to go by, the two of you fall a distant 1000th to HH. There is no area you can possibly claim, Sata was better than HH. Trickery and foul mouth may be.

    • Panyo pako chi eddy …its a sin to call hh dull.the bible puts it clear that lying z sin. Your hate will not errase facts about hh..he z rich, learned, intelligent and successful.

    • @Flight EL2015,
      Good comment. We have a responsibility as Zambians to hold politicians to account, without exception.

    • If, and a big IF he gets to plot one. Not when he gets to plot one, because it WONT happen. Let the fellow continue ‘ukuchema’.

  8. This is all fake, why carry the crew of cameras to show that. Sata used to do that without any cameras around. this is mere show off

    • @Ba kachema,
      LOL, Ati the late Sata used to do that WITHOUT the media? Then how did you and millions of Zambians get to KNOW about it if none of it was reported?
      The best any well-meaning Zambian can do at this stage to hold these politicians to their word.

    • There you go again!
      You have a load of names for HH and the UPND.
      You call them anyone you choose at will.
      If anyone of us try to call you by something you are actually reputed for….like…PANAGA Family, you reach deep and make even more of such epithets.

      What you forget when you use some of those epithets, is that many of us, including yours truly are not Tongas.

      So drop these senseless mantras of labeling people.

      If you ate any beef lately, chances are that it had something to do with HH’s farm. So thank him for that, don’t insult him.

    • @Adage,
      True word. Unless and until us Zambians hold these politicians to their word, the trend will continue, unfortunately.
      By stark contrast, we have just finished voting here in UK and David Cameron (Conservatives) have won. The winners now have to Do What They Said They Would Do, or they will be toast by the voters.

  9. Ignore HH at your own peril. The guy has mastered Zambian politics. In Zambian its easy to become president if you are seen interacting with the under privilege. quality does not matter.

  10. I like HH not because of these photos but because of what he stands for. I will vote for him in 2016.

  11. It is certainly clear that this is coming from his image builders. Unfortunately, he is showing off so that Zambia can see that HH can do this. Let the people be your messengers bwana HH and not the media. They will always lie to you like movie tv did. I had thought you learnt a lesson about this. While what you are doing is commendable, do it without the presence of the media, then you will achieve more than with the media. The other thing is for you to let the nation know the purpose of your visits and what exactly you will do after completing your visits. To lay bare your good intentions disarm your critics.

  12. No one in the world can ever change things to the delight of everyone. People called Sata Savior. Within a short period of time he was called names which I cannot mention. Mwanawasa was called cabbage when he came into power, when he left he had some good name to himself. People praised Chiluba when he became President, when he left, he called thief. Can’t say much about RB.

    HH will have his time but if you expect a Paradise on earth, you will be disappointed. Let him come and let him come and do what he can but do not over expectant. Just some advice

  13. Not a bad campaign snare. Why are such interactions/ interminglings not common after winning elections? We evidently see red carpets, extratight security, statements on behalf of etc. …………. Just wondering.

    • YOU PEOPLE WHY DO YOU HATE H.H, H.H IS ALSO CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

    • Christopher,

      That is the hypocrisy of Zambia being declared and holding on to the label of a Christian nation. MOST Zambians are simpleminded. Ukwalolo mwela, eko balola, Christianity notwithstanding. It is just a cloak of convenience anyways.

  14. Those women in Picture 11, are they for UPND or Nkana? That symbol looks like Nkana’s favour, Lol.
    Nice pics. HH’s image builders are at work. This is a side of him, that people want to see.
    I have always said, HH has failed in all past attempts for republican presidency, because people dont identify with him. This is a good start tho, especially for 2021.
    ***I hope to see him to this in Chilubi Island too.

    • This is the same HH captured on several occasions pushing burrows in Misisi, riding a bicycle across the town of Chipata, sitting down with mourners in Linda, opening his house to a lady he calls mother from Luapula, etc. Finshi mufwaya akacite kanshi?

      Nangu amishitile njinga bonse muZambia, you will still call him names. I think you hate him because you are used to being led by people who don’t care. You are used to suffering!

  15. It looks like he went to tease the poor. Thought he would practically help some of those poor people he went to visit. May be he was looking for business opportunities in those areas.
    People already know who he is and how he treats his relative and workers. Ask Zambians that have met him abroad how he behaves!

  16. ‘You are damned for what you do and damned for what you don’t’. If he does not visit the under privileged, tongues will wag, ‘HH does not connect to the grassroots’. If he visits them, the tongues will go into overdrive, ‘He is doing so without meaning it, he is doing it for votes’ and so on and so forth. Fellow countrymen, this man has tried hard enough. You have already seen what he has done in his private life. Give him a chance to prove himself at the highest level. Is he not Zambian?
