HH speaking to Journalists just before casting his vote

The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has charged that presidential pardon has now become a tool of corruption.

And Mr. Hichilema had disclosed that UPND members are now receiving death threats from the PF and are forced to join their party.

Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka this morning, Mr. Hichilema notes that it is clear that presidential pardons are applied in a corrupt manner.

Mr. Hichilema says any prisoner willing to join and support the Patriotic Front and President Edgar Lungu is pardoned saying this is an abuse of presidential pardons.

He says this pardoning of prisoners on corruption grounds will lead to increased crime in the country.

And Mr. Hichilema says the UPND stands with Post Newspaper Editor Fred Mmembe and reporter Mukosha Funga on their arrest and will voice out for them stating that what they did is simply exposing corruption.

Mr. Hichilema says he will not be intimidated by the cadres harassing him but will continue to fight for the people of Zambia.

Meanwhile Mr. Hichilema had disclosed that UPND members are now receiving death threats from the PF stating that there Chawama candidate is one who has received a death threat if he does not join the ruling PF.

He has reiterated that the country lacks leadership which is why it is going through difficult times.

He further states that Zambians deserve better which the PF cannot offer stressing that the PF went in government for their own benefits.

  1. It doesn’t require a lot of intelligence to realize how easy it is to compromise our Jamasoni Lungu.

    In most cases it only takes a song of praise or public pronouncements in support of the PF then one wins his freedom from incarceration

  3. How about the nolle prosequi HH got from Mutembo Nchito? Isn’t that also a tool of corruption?

    • Kayuliar…….

      What companies were sold in the privatisation programmes? Who sold which tranches? Which companies were ‘sold’ by Deloitee, KPMG, Grant Thorton, PWC? Who were the lead managers in these institutions?

      Not all Zambians are gullible to fall for your PF lies.

      Facts are that Chiluba and Sata’s MMD now PF sold these companies with prominent names from a certain looting tribe.

      I specialised in Privatisation as a consultant and you can’t cheat your way into hatred of HH. Zwa masipa ahaho ka you lair

    • Man, you are right on the point. HH should be ashamed that he participated in sharing our companies with his fellow thieves. That is the great and worse corruption he should be talking about not the release of Kanene.

  7. UPND is solidly in support of the Post Newspaper and Fred Membe. We stand with him in defence of freedom of expression and exposing corruption.

    We call on all freedom loving Zambians to join the UPND, FDD, Rainbow in giving solidarity to our comrade in arms – Fred Membe.

    Fred – You will NEVER walk alone!!!

    • Fred is the guy who has made zambians hate hh with a passion. He is the guy who has put a permanent trybal tag on upend and hh. Because clueless upend cadres are busy blindly supporting the same guy who has erased the fortune of hh becoming a president they can’t realise that they’re sinking together with Fred . Political miscalculations is what has caused upend failure to win elections. Fred is the most hated in the country now and to align yourselves with him means you are fighting a losing battle.

  9. Looks like if HH became president there would be no pardons for convicts. That is a bad indication for a person fighting to become Zambia’s president.
    Could it be true that this man is wicked. The pardoned people have relatives too. I would have been worried if the pardoned people were merderers! Besides what would we gain by killing them? Life imprisonment is adequate.

  10. Now HH has turned into a sounding gong making unnecessary noise. Zambians are now just laughing at HH’s childish behaviour. How can a person be threatened of death he he does not join PF? What a laughable childish rant from a person who wants to be president?

    The other dull rant is when he speaks against general Kanene, sure a an aspiring president sinking so low….what is wrong with HH? ALl Zambians know that the supposedly girl Kanene slept with has a child and she is older than 16 though the NRC says otherwise. Kanene was jailed coz of his arrogance towards the court of law, police and the general public, but now its seems he has repented.

    By the way HH fears Kanene that he will sing against him (HH). But this should not cause you to sink so low mr Hichilema. Please leave…

  11. To be honest no one from PF can think of killing HH. For your information HH is not the first to be near presidenc. Nkumbula, Dean Mun’gomba, BY, Morgan from Zimbabwe, Joseph from Uganda and Odinga kenya went through this painful jane. The issue of going to court so that there are no elections next year and today’s kiling are face saving games.

  12. Some bloggers are really backward/dull! They can not comprehend simple literature from the article & let alone express themselves radically!PF has really destroyed the education sector in Zambia,surprisingly,these same bloggers are employed in strategic positions in parastatal firms no wonder they are perceiving invisible development in their shallow grey matters! These are the Musambas,Kaizer Zulus(former simple driver to Chief tribalist, though late,Sata)Very illiterate indeed & one expects Parastatal companies & let alone Zambia’s economy with such people in key sensitive positions!

    • No no man, the reason why the economy of Zambia is continuously in the down turn is coz HH and his fellow thieves sold all the companies which were producing. How can a country whose manufacturing companies have been sold and money shared expect to perform well? No it cant happen , may be when HH and his fellow thieves bring back our companies is when Zambia Economy will start performing well. Do you hear it?

  15. Ba UPND suporters stop thinking that you are more intellegent than PF suporters we have gone to same schools. Remember your reaction to chama’s words. you are quick to insult others but cry like a baby whose milk has finished in a feeding bottle when insulted. I dont think there is a level of education in UPND which cant be found in PF. lets respect each other pliz.

  16. Why do *****s think calling Tongas ‘kachemas’ will hurt them? Most Tongas are more educated than the writers of such articles including. Your relatives are still hunting monkeys back home and fishing the depleted swamps and you try to sound like you better off. Check your provinces and the high poverty levels.

  17. I meant to say “including the one who coined the saying” You hide behind fake names and yet in real life you are failures without anything attached to your sorry names apart from the phones and laptop you use to insult Tongas. Later you eat beef sold to you by a Tonga. That is the lowest form of life one can surely lead. The kachema makes money out of you and you laugh at him! He gets rich it hurts you. Then again you buy beef from him and laugh at him some more. You buy more beef again making him richer. What a type of people really!

  19. Zambia is the Christian nation, so why should we not forgive one other . Jesus always teaches about love but some of you are devils. lf we look In book of GOD about Mosses who was murder but became a messenger of God and Soul was against the Christians but later he was change to the messenger of GOD. Remember they no big sin. your excellent Edger Lungu use your power to release more prisoners God will reward in heaven only devil people will rejoice when others are suffering : we shall vote for you next year so that we teach them a lesson. We thought Tonga they love there fellow Tonga— kanene plz join the colapa family.
