UPND President Hakainde Hichilema interacts with residents in Linda compound

Fellow countrymen and women,

We are once again back to trivia debates that are totally unproductive like we have wrongly done so in the past at the expense of focusing on real issues that are currently affecting our nation.
I personally have never seriously commented on the trivia issue of Davies Chama because I don’t believe that’s the way to preoccupy ourselves at the expense of serious national issues.
I was personally at Lwiindi traditional ceremony in Monze and proceeded for another one at Chief Mukuni’s Palace in Livingstone and at no time did I ever hear any debate about people of Southern Province intentions to secede from the rest of Zambia. Perhaps I missed something very important there.

But the point is that as long as we keep preoccupying ourselves with trivia and unproductive debates, we are really doomed as a nation.
Let’s not divert our attention from what should be real issues that we need serious solutions as a united country.
We need to put our heads together and find solutions on why we are accruing huge debts as a country when we have the capacity to locally generate resources and create employment for our people, especially mainly the majority jobless youths. That’s what should be preoccupying us.

The debate should be how we avoid closures at institutions of higher learning such as CBU, UNZA, Evelyn Hone, and others.
And of course the huge debate should be the current massive and highly inconveniencing Zesco loadshedding and why we could not foresee such a national disaster. This is what should be keeping our heads spinning looking for answers. As a businessman myself, I’m agonising how production levels in the country have gone down with people being laid off as a result of loss of business due to loadshedding.

I’m thinking of that woman who cooks in the market and how they will meet their rentals, pay for domestic bills and survive because they have not been able to generate enough income. The small business people owning barbershop, welding machines, electric hammer mills, irrigation systems etc. Big businesses such as mining houses that have now been told to cut their electricity consumption by 30 percent and obviously that will mean reducing production and laying off workers. That’s what should preoccupy us instead of diverting attention to trivia issues based on malice, and pure lies.

Just yesterday we were told government has finally cancelled KCM permit to bring toxic copper concentrate substances all the way from Chile and that it should be shipped back to that country now. The debate should be where was the entire government machinery when these toxic and harmful substance were being imported thousands of kilometres away until it found itself on the Copperbelt only to now realise it is dangerous and must be taken back?

Since we have developed the propensity to travel around the world, one would have thought by now we should be sending a serious delegation to Kenya and learn how they have attracted massive foreign investment in wind power electricity generation under the Public Private Partnerships (PPP) which will be one of the biggest in entire Africa. That’s what should be enriching our debate as a country with serious leadership.
Majority of people currently originating from Southern and indeed other provinces are residing all over various parts of the country and happily married everywhere for them to think of such trivia issues as seceding.

One would have thought if there were such intentions they would not have entertained the Choma declaration that brought about One Party State at the time perhaps it was even more volatile.
My worry is we are lost as a nation if we keep ignoring and don’t address serious issues of even denouncing violence by gun trotting cadres in the streets.
Please may we debate on the ever rising cost of living and the Kwacha is again fast falling against major world currencies standing at K7.7 to $1 and rising inflation etc.

Have a productive day and God bless.

Hakainde Hichilema

  1. Southerners, don’t fall right in their trap! This is just another well-crafted strategy by the PF as they have realised that the tribal tug is now outdated and no longer working wonders for them and no one can buy it. The strategy to stop HH and UPND forming government next year is to keep on shouting that southerners want to secede and so electing HH and UPND into government would be a mistake as they would, once in government, divide the country into small countries. This has the effect of bringing fear in the hearts of those whose livelihood depends only on eating masuku on other people’s heads; so they would not vote for HH and UPND. You will hear this statement more and more until elections. This is the new breakthrough strategy for the PF. There is no basis whatsoever for southern…

    • There is no basis whatsoever for southern province people to demand for secession as they allege. What law or historical situation are they going to use? It amounts to treason to do that as Zambia which has always included southern province is a unitary and constitutional state. Yes, Barotseland has legal basis to demand for secession and the PF wants to use this as a basis to say southerners too are thinking of that. So it is just politics of deception.

    • @ insider

      In so far only mentioning of secession comes from pathetic f00ls. If they had REAL EVIDENCE, do you really think that there was going to be warning or swift action by state security services?
      Instead of issuing comprehensive statement regarding Chama 1diotical utterances based on tribalism, as promised by VP, “secession” issue has been tabled to confuse issue of constant tribalism perpetuated bu panga family.

    • True that Mr. President with a VISION not PF VISIONLESS bandits!

      I totally agree with you that, “the debate should be how we avoid closures at institutions of higher learning such as CBU, UNZA, Evelyn Hone, and others.
      And of course the huge debate should be the current massive and highly inconveniencing Zesco loadshedding and why we could not foresee such a national disaster. This is what should be keeping our heads spinning looking for answers”.

      The visionless PF is intoxicated with political mudslinging of opponents & have no idea of how to govern the state.

      All what PF BANDITS, plus RBs MMD ones is CONFUSION, CORRUPTION, LIES & VIOLENCE. The BANDITS have realized that TIME for them being KICKED OUTTA is less than 12 months. Poor Visionless PF!

    • @Insider. I agree with some of your points. But you seem to lack historical facts. Southern Province was never part of Northern Rhodesia. It was a dependant area that fell within the control of Barotseland. And evidence is there that Barotseland was being paid by the British regime for taking care of Southern Province. In other words, Southern Province was outside Barotseland. So the people of Southern Province have the right to self-determination and can do this by holding a referendum to choose whether to go with Barotseland or remain with Northern Rhodesia or fully determine themselves. But I can assure you that no normal Southerner would want to remain in Northern Rhodesia.

    • Hear Hear the president for all has spoken.HH exudes a lot of wisdom in his statements.

      PF have lamentably failed to run the affairs of this country and therefore want to divert attention to trivia divide and rule tactics of the colonial era to run away from issues of Education, unemployment, wage freeze and load shedding woes.

      PF has totally lost focus. Lungu their leaders is a toothless mole without any moral compass to help his flock of thugs navigate through the mess they have created for Zambia.

      PF should be warned sternly that, any use of divide and rule tactics will not be tolerated by well meaning Zambians up down the country.

      How ever I must stress that, in the absence of good leadership to benefit all Zambians, secession becomes the only option .

      Viva UPND and HH.

    • Even if it means taking ZNBC to court to have HH and UPND to address the nation on this “Public” broadcaster on this issue let it be. ZNBC and the party in government should realise that Zambians have a right to accurate, adequate and understandable information to enable them make informed decisions affecting their lives. This includes political decisions that every voting Zambian must make. Please unite our beloved country. Problems of this nature resurfaced after 2011. President Lungu should address himself to bringing Zambians back together, please.

  2. As long as Zambians continue to judge others by the region they hail from not the content of their character, Zambians are doomed. lets focus on the way forward than what we cant change. i fully support your statement HH. my professor always wondered why we dont elect the right people in our offices every time and all she said was its because we vote for people we generally identify with – meaning if we always vote for people who are stealing, its because we are thieves too. This is the risk with democracy – when the majority (27,000) voted to make that difference, we are where we are now. all of us are suffering except those with road contracts for sale.

  3. The issue of debating the Southerners in the manner PF leaders are doing is so retrogressive. It is sad that in the name of hanging on to power people like Chama can sink so low to insult a group of people for no apparent reason. Anyways, for PF it is clear which people are being favored by the system.

    • ZNBC please give HH a forum so that Zambians in rural areas can hear from HH and Nawakwi directly. At present they only hear what their political opponents say about them, which is negative. Government campaigners are always heard in the remotest parts of Zambia because they are fully covered by ZNBC. Totally unfair to opposition and to voters who are denied views of opposition on campaign issues.

  7. Well said but most Zambians have no capacity to debate real issues.

    How did we get here, Look at Greece and see what is going on and one can ask how did they get to that situation.

    I can see Zambia going the same route, how do you have a Government that does not tell its people on how it will address the Kwacha issue, Zesco issue, Budget deficit issue, Borrowing Issue, Unemployment issue, Universities Issue, the list goes on and on.

    As a people we need to question our leaders, esp EL he has been in office now for more than 6 months and he has not told the nation what he intends to do.

    • Ignorant Eddy, HH will bring prudent management of national resources; HH is already rich and will not be preoccupied with making money for his family; HH will give us a people driven constitution which is the basis for good governance; HH will implement only priority projects unlike demolishing cabinet office in order to create projects; HH will take back RDA where it belongs for professionals to manage multi-billion dollar projects and not cadres; HH as chief kachema himself will ensure that agriculture is boosted and Zambia becomes a food basket for the region; HH will only borrow for real development and not for the sake of making someone rich somewhere; etc. It is not true that Zambias problems can only be solved by God. It is only political will, a vision and skills that are lacking

Zambians work very hard but our incompetent leaders make poor decisions,squander all our earning put us in debt.The systems that govern Zambia need to change. Presidential powers need to be stripped.He appoints judges,police chiefs, ACC director etc no matter how hard these people work the president can fire them any time.A minister can at a whim decide to allow toxic substances into Zambia.such things should not be allowed to happen.These people sign treaties we have no clue about,binding us to laws we did not agree to,this should not be allowed to happen! So Leaders are important.

    coming to the issue of southern province to be a country own its own,in the first place iam a tonga by tribe and i dont support this issue and i will never support it.Honourable K yesterday said wrath of law will fall on those who calling for seccesion.now i have a question for mr K,which chief in southern province sat to discuss this?let the minister inform the nation its pointless to just raise the issue which has no merit at all.where was the meeting held from?
    which town in southern province?how many chiefs were in attendance?dont hate a tribe merely because it has produced a candidate vying for the high office of the land.Tongas are peaceful people.earliest inhabitant in zambia where can we go?PF accuse us other things not…

    I WANT TO SEE A SITUATION IN 2016 WHERE PEOPLE WILL VOTE NOT ON TRIBAL BUT ON MERIT AND IF WE WILL GO THAT DIRECTION THEN ALL THE SQUABLES OF PF FAILURES WILL COME TO AN END.

  15. I wish we had more reasonable and rational people like HH in Zambia, we could have been doing better in many aspects of our country. Indeed we have important issues affecting the lives of majority citizens and yet we have the likes of chama discussing secession, kapata discussing third term when the second is miles away. There is no real plan under pf and we should indeed brace ourselves for even harder times if pf continues governing. We cannot have a bunch of law makers and the cabinet bent on protecting their interest while the national interests are left an attended.

  16. This is well put and we hope PF can close this chapter of Tonga this,Tonga that and start demonstrating leadership on the key issues that HH and other Zambians have been raising. I am not such a keen supporter of HH but he is right on this list of priorities! Another question;why has Edgar Lungu continued with the culture of not addressing the nation to discuss all these vexing issues? Briefings from Cabinet meetings are quite common these days and welcome but are not holistic to explain the state of the nation! That is how a leader looses support. By failing to carry people along by explaining these issues,people start suspecting something wrong. To HH, please tame your cadres especially those on-line who insult other ethnicities as that portrays your party as hating other ethnic groups.

Up to now no member of that organization has been arrested. Now we’re being told about the secession nonsense. Whoever falls for this needs to have their heads examined. The key to retaining power is to work hard and deliver on your promises, not by issuing threats and engaging in divide and rule.

  23. Chama’s tribal remarks against Tongas that they will never rul unless they produce more childrens through polygamy. Generarally Chama meant that no one from small tribes in zambia can rule because zambia is a tribalist country. Therefore,all people from small tribes are affectected . The problem here is the president EL who appointed chama and gave him authority to utter those descriminatory tribal remark against Tongas and who has also supported chama’tribal remarks. This issue of seceding is just another PF DiVIDE AND RULE TACTICS which will result in arresting all political leaders in the southern region. As the head of state EL was suppose to apologize and tell the people of Southern that they are part of this country ‘s leadership as they can be voted inpower like any other.

  24. This is merely a long list of what one says should be debated. The simple question is, why have you not started those debates yourself? Put them forward timely. Take a look at Party Leader Nawakwi, currently with the GMO issues; she has stepped up to the plate with something real and asked for clarity. Challenged the gov’t and forced the debate nationwide. It’s no use just saying we ought to be doing something when you ain’t getting the party started HH, Sir!

    KCM reversal is proof that the gov’t are tackling serious issues that have upset citizens. Chellah being called for corruption investigations is proof that PF are not stopping the race to beat corruption ( though we do need to see more successes).

And Vernon Mwaanga of all people has joined the band wagon!

    And coming to Nawakwi……no moral standing to comment on things that she did not do when she was Minister. And when she opens her mouth it is to please the Post!

  38. Well spoken HH. Totally agree. Lets focus on solutions to critical issues affecting our Country. This is what separates men and women from boys and girls. Boys and girls indulge in Trivial and petty things, whereas men and women focus on serious issues affecting the Country. Even on this blog, one can tell a boy or girl from a man or woman comment.
    On the ‘To Do list’ for Zambia, in addition to what HH has touched on lets include: –
    1.) Shortage of Energy:- What’s the short, medium and long term solution at household level?, at community level? at National level? Answer:- Lets move away from the mindset of centralised source of energy feeding the national grid and everyone drawing from there. Why not reverse the trend like in other Countries, and encourage the ….

    • Cont’d … encourage the population i.e. individuals, household, community to generate/capture Energy and feed into the national grid as a self sustaining business.
      2.) Copper is a wasting asset. It will run out and/or prices will be pushed down by materials like Fibre Optics. What’s plan ‘B’ for Zambia’s economy post Copper years? Answer:- is it agriculture since we have more rivers than any other Country in Sub-Sahara Africa?

      These are some of the serious issues we should be debating on. And lets debate WITH suggested solutions, not just negative comments and nothing to offer.

  39. Good ideas Cactus, brilliant ideas, but not necessarily practical, economical, nor optimal.

    • @Terrible,
      What do you mean ‘not practical’? I live in UK and I’ve worked with two the big six Energy supplying companies for a number of years now. Among other things, I have been inspecting domestic and non-domestic energy meters. As more and more home owners are now selling surplus energy they capture via solar panels. They are certified producers and assisted by Govt scheme to install the solar photo-voltaic panes on their roofs. Thats decentralizing, and creating subsistence for citizens.
      Please clarify what you mean by ‘not practical’.

  40. As usual blah blah blah. Apart from condemning what solution has he offered? He appears more blank than the people he is condemning. What does he think is the reason why new hydro stations like Lumwana, Kabompo and the one recently commissioned are four. If he has realised now, it is too late because the govt is ahead of him. But well, he is politicking as usual. Condemning every thing will not inspire intellectuals. If he does not see anything good in what PF is doing, then he is living in his own world. Not all is well but Zambia is daily improving and HH and the voters know.

  41. What makes a policy issue is defining it and not listing it. Show your understanding of what the issue content involves. Listing a menu is called introduction to politics 110. Start to identify and ripen the issue by defining its dimensions. This affords people to assess your own capacity to offer solutions. You can list all the perceived wrongs of your opponent but it says little about your public policy understanding and what clarity you shall bring to bear on solving the issue. You have to make yourself believable on account of your reasoning. That is what I can say about this as Forrest Gump would put it!

  43. Pretender HH has felt the heat of Zambians. Now he wants to appear innocent when in fact he is the instigator of the all dull strategy of acceding to power. Please lecture your chiefs and cadres on this issue coz its them with the post who started it.

    Even your blind cadres on this blog supported it vehemently but today they have U-turned. What a butch of dull hypocrites. Shame on you all . Shaa.
