UPND will easily win 2016 Elections -HH

Headlines UPND will easily win 2016 Elections -HH

Hakainde Hichilema
Hakainde Hichilema

United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema says the 2016 elections will be easier for him to win given the current adversities in the country.

Mr. Hichilema says it is a known fact that the PF will struggle to convince the people to keep them in office in view of the current economic and social challenges the country is facing.

He says the high cost of living, failure to deal with the energy deficit, the volatility of the kwacha; high fertilizer fuel prices are some of the things which will haunt the ruling party in 2016.

Mr. Hichilema is confident that the people of Zambia will vote on merit in the 2016 elections and not the way they voted in January where they voted for PF out of sympathy.

He states that most people have confessed that his earlier warning about the PF was genuine after witnessing the suffering they have been subjected to.
Mr Hichilema says given this background, he feels that the people of Zambia have leant lessons from the mistake they made and will vote on merit next year.

  1. True Mr HH, this time around we will reason as we vote. We will not go for a man who has openly told us that he has no vision for the country. We need a quality leader, a man with a clear vision for the better of all Zambians. Zambia right now is in a mess and if things continue like this then we are finished at a nation.

    • This man does he sleep honestly…. what is in state house mwabantu? A day hardly passes without hearing his rantings eeeeeeeeeeeeish. A pain in the aa…s this man!!

    • Iwe Gomes, people are dying in hospitals for lack of medicines. People sleep on hungry stomachs when Zambia is endowed with so many natural resources including human resources to think and produce food. You sound like a spoiled rich kid who doesn’t know and even doesn’t care where his father gets the money that he endlessly gives him. HH is hungry for uplifting the suffering masses. When you grow up poor and become truly rich (I’m not talking about tenderpreneurs who will be broke in 5 to 10 years’ time), you wonder why everyone cannot live your life and always you strive to help others live your life. That is HH..

    • How can you vote for a guy that charters a flight to NY when he could have flown on a commercial aircraft to save money.How can you vote for a man that creates 5 ministries when the cost of running that unnecessary ministry would solve problems at CBU? How can you vote for someone that has made the kwacha the worst currency in the world. Edgar has no vision and he is leading us to the ditch

    • Kikikiki….devilish traits……..when the devil messed up Jobs life,he started taunting him(Job)………same same na HH na Nawakwi,after getting billions from the flawed privatisation today they want to be messiahs of Zambia when they are to blame for the mess that our country is in. Mukose, come 2016 ECL is winning!

    • @ Rizzo, HH has not mentioned state house. HH does not sleep over the suffering of Zambians caused by poor, blind and mediocre leadership. If you want, you can take your state house but let him lead the country for the betterment of all. State house is too small my friend….. Twachula pafula……

    • @DePal, tell them. A number of these supporting PF are here i the diaspora on govt scholarships or work at the embassy / high comm

    • HH is just a concerned citizen that feels he can stir the country back to sanity…. The kwacha is the worst performing currency in the world, hobs

    • HH is just a concerned citizen that feels he can stir the country back to sanity. In a democracy citizens are free to participate by forming parties or joining those whose vision appeals to you…its a right people. If you are happy with the following… The kwacha the worst performing currency in the world, jobs gone, power shortages, universities closed, standard of living sky rocketing daily l, medical shortages…then vote yes for President Lungu…. That’s a choice… I feel that disqualification based on TRIBE is why Zambia is at today..

  2. But we have suffered under this government. Never have we had an incompetent government in Zambia like this before. This is the worst government. Yes there are challenges in the world over but this government is not giving us a direction.

    This government which has not given us any strategies on how they intend to resolve the issues in the country.

    • @ Kambwili

      You are mistaken. This government has given us clear “strategy” (lol) on how they intend to solve the issues in the country:
      1. They are praying, feasting and building Temples; and
      2. We are praying at the flickering light of imported candles and fasting not by choice, but because of “unprecedented development”!!!

    • Their strategy is simple. Win by-elections and 2016 and leave Zambia to collapse while traveling around the world on Government expense.

      The only time Lungu has experienced load shedding is at a football match.

      The only time he has experienced water shortages is when his Jamesoni is too strong.

      The only inflation he knows is his own ego.

  3. Mr HH you know in your heart that even in Jan. 2015 Zambians never made a mistake, they voted for a capable leader who is HH but you & the entire Upnd team allowed Pf manipulated the results. Please in the coming general elections be vigilant as the united Upnd team to protect the Zambians’s rights otherwise no normal person can continue to sing praise songs for this current government. They are clueless, vision-less leaders as indicated by Lungu who will continue mismanaging the resources of this country.

    • People supporting PF are not in Zambia. I remember the words of Masebo that Muzalila mukavotela Lungu and here it is. She is vindicated.

  4. ONLY THOSE WITH THICK MINDS WHO DO NOT SEE WHERE WE ARE WILL SAY PF IS AT GOOD WORK. BANE, THINGS HAVE BEEN HIKED WORSE THAN EVER AND WE DO NOT SEE COMING OUT OF THIS. WHEN YOUR HOUSE IS FILLED UP WITH DEBTS HOW CAN YOU EAT SMART THE T-BONE ON THE TABLE, YOUR SALARY IS SMALL HOW WILL YOU BUDGET TO PAY SCHOOL FEES FOR YOUR GRADE TWO AND GRADE 8 CHILD, WHEN YOUR INCOME IS LESS THAN EXPENDITURE HOW WILL YOUR CHILDREN DRESS AND FEED WELL? FP MEANS POWERS tested has FAILED.

    • @Sena you are in America visit Zambia and see where Zambia really is not where you are. HH will not come in office an lower all prices, improve the exchange rate, lower un employment and make Zambia great. I bet you his first speech will be a call to Zambians to work hard and remove themselves from poverty, which song he will repeat for the next 5 years. HH cannot serve Zambia, Its only the factors out there in the world which need to change. China the African hope is starting to sleep again, copper in worthless again, the USD is mighty again…. so Africa and Zambia in particular will suffer again. HH Knows this. So I say he is already cheating by making you believe a magician

    • @ The Zed,

      And as you are right, we should stick with the same “humble”, “visionary” and “anointed” leadership and benefit from “unprecedented development”?

      Last week people of Guatemala elected a comedian as a President, last January people of Zambia elected “humble”, “visionary” and “anointed” Leader who has become comedian. Enjoy comedy whilst last. Remember, sooner or later, curtain will fall down and all of us, even you, will pay the price.

    • @The Zed. Let us not kid ourselves. It is true HH will call on us as Zambians to work hard. But surely HH has consistently called on PF to reduce Govt expenditure. UPND is committed to a 15 member cabinet which will save us money. PF has failed to heed the advice of their own BOZ Governor to reduce Govt expenditure. There are measures we can take to address the adverse world economic climate. If Mwanawasa & Magande did it, why can’t we? ECL has failed. He has blamed everything else but PF policies. We need a Govt that will respond approriately to the changing fortunes of the world economic outlook. Between ECL & HH, I would rather vote for HH as he has articulated a consistent economic outlook that is not narrow but expansive to include more sources of revenue for Zambia.

  5. @TheZed, so what is your solution?? PF has messed up a lot and I feel for whichever party forms govt. they will have to work very, very, hard.

  6. The people of Zambia this the people of Zambia that. Which people of Zambia is HH talking about? The people of Zambia are those that will go to vote next year and not those in HH’s dreams. May be the people of Southern Province.

  7. Imwe naimwe ba dep. If this guy can’t talk of state house, what else can he talk about?. He is just filled with hate, envy and jealousy. What solutions can he offer to this country? when its a well known fact that this man was in the for front In selling of the mines and other parastatal companies, leaving poor miners and other workers in abject poverty. What can he lie to us. He has been asked to explain where his source of riches, not a single moment did he explain to the voters the source of those millions. We know the sources for other rich guys like GBM, Dangote, Gates and other rich guys. Why is he skipping those questions if he is someone to be trusted with the instruments of power. Besides that he possesses the charactaristics of a dictator. Since he became upnd president,…

  8. That is a dullusion and I find it a miscalculated statement for an opposition party candidate to be making. Unsitting an incumbent government in Africa is an uphill battle. The real play here is that HH has misinterpreted the 2015 election results, the truth is that the PF barely campained but still won. Edgar Lungu was not known and his people were unsure of him. Of course the PF will lose some voters in Lusaka and Copperbelt but will gain in Eastern, Western and Central Provinces. The election will be tight, but HH should know that the vultures are circling. If HH loses 2016, when all economic indicators are expected to propel him to victory, his relevance will be questioned. GBM nearly has as much resources and could ‘hijack’ the party.

  9. its surprising that even regional parties like upnd can claim victory a year before elections. anyway its his opinion after all opinion is for free but to tell him the truth even 2016 is losing again. because people of southern has taught us how to vote not on merit but on tribal & they are very few.

  10. Put your facts right Mr. HH, its day dreaming for you to win 2016 elections. Check what as happened in Tanzania they have the same economic malaise and most of they dams have dried up hence no power but CCM have won the elections.

    • DONT FOOL YOUR MIND LUNGU IS NOT MATURE HE IS A PLAY BOY IN STATE HOUSE WHO DOESNT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING. ONLY FOOLS WILL PRAISE FAILURE 42% POVERTY RATING FOR ZAMBIA IS NOT A JOKE IT MEANS HALF OF THE POPULATION LEAVE IN MISERABLE STATE. HH HAS BUILD HIMSELF A STATE HOUSE, HE IS EAGER TO SERVE US FROM POVERTY BY USING HIS KNOWLEDGE TO EXPLORE OUR VAST RESOURCES AND CREATE EMPLOYMENT, VOTE FOR HH AND UPND

    • HH HAS BUILD HIMSELF A STATE HOUSE, LET THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA DECIDE THEIR FUTURE THINGS ARE NOT RIGHT, VOTING FOR PF, IS LIKE DIGGING YOUR OWN GRAVE, VOTE FOR CHANGE

  11. I was one of those who was shouting loudly that “Ifintu Ni Lungu”. Currently, i am out of employment after being laid off from the mines. it is difficult to start life anew looking at the kind of packages we were given. I am struggling to take care of my family and my marriage is on the rocks. I am relying on relatives , some friends and sympathisers some of whom i differed with before the January 2015 presidential by-election. I have learnt my lesson the hard way for voting for a wrong party.

  12. Comment:Ever election has been easier for you to win but where are you now? you muliokela doesn’t feel the same about it? just retire already

  13. Every election has been easier for you but where are you now? you think muliokela doesn’t feel the same about it? just retire already

  14. Yes HH and UPND have some chances of forming govt next year, but he must not overrate himself like last year when he was claiming he will win by over 80%. People are unpredictable and since Zambians are accustomed to hardships, they will not mind ushering the humble visionless Lungu even next year. Instead of getting excited by the people sifting camps, HH and his team should be going serious campaign trails if they are to form govt.

  15. HH is just ranting. Zambians have been the have will vote lungu again. Hear this HH you are losing the 2016 elections.

  16. this HH guy is a flip flopper. isnt this the same fellow that was saying the election was stolen from him? now he is claiming that the people did not vote on merit!!!

  17. MWE BANTU, HOW DO YOU WIN AN ELECTION WHEN YOU HAVE NOT EVEN ESTABLISHED OFFICES AND APPOINTED PEOPLE TO CAMPAIGN FOR YOU IN
    LUAPULA,
    NORTHERN,
    EASTERN,
    MCHINGA AND THE
    COPPER-BELT
    PROVINCES?

  18. we want to assure the nation that 2016 election will be the most easy one to win for upnd because we have a strong youth league to help in safeguarding our votes across the country.

  19. HH,
    DONALD TRUMP AND
    KADANSA
    SEEM TO HAVE CERTAIN THINGS IN COMMON LIKE HALLUCINATION.
    ARE THEY ALEX MULIOKELA RE-INCARNATES?

  20. Still living in la la land HH. I suppose you have to keep up the pretence that you will be President after next year’s elections, you stand more chance of playing in the next Football World Cup finals as Zambia’s goalkeeper.

  21. Kikiki,but mwadandaula bachakolwa eeh..
    2016 Voting pattern will be a reaction to the 90%++ voting pattern of southern province Watch how luapula, Northern and Eastern will respond. Zambian politics tefintu! People have not forgotten.UPND is HH and HH is UPND. The party must go for a convention and re-elect HH.

    I like HH he is a good guy, can change things but he doesnt understand a Zambian mind.

  22. ELECTIONS SHOULD BE ABOUT WHATS RIGHT FOR THE COUNTRY NOT JUST ABOUT WHO WE SEND TO PLOT ONE! RIGHT NOW THE ONLY THING WE ALL AGREE ON IS THAT THINGS ARE NOT RIGHT AND THIS GOVERNMENT IS MESSING THINGS UP EVEN MORE. IF WE ARE TRUE TO OURSELVES WE ALL WOULD AGREE THAT AT THE VERY LEAST LUNGU AND PF HAVE MISERABLY FAILED AT EVERYTHING. THEN NEXT WE EVACUATE OUR OPTIONS. ONE THING FOR SURE THAT IS UNDENIABLY OBVIOUS IS THAT THE PF HAS TO BE RELEGATED TO SIDELINES. ITS ZAMBIA FIRST! LUNGU AND RB HAVE TO BE KICKED OUT!

  23. TIMES ARE VERY HARD NOW AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE HARDLY SLEEPING EG LYANSHA. IT IS THERFORE SURPRISING THAT PF CADRES ARE HAVING ENOUGH SLEEP IN THESE TIMES. NO WONDER GOVT HAS FAILED BECAUSE THEY ARE SLEEPING INSTEAD OF SORTING OUT THEIR MESS. LIKE FATHER LIKE SON EXACTLY.

  24. WE MUST ALL AGREE THAT HARDSHIPS HAS VISITED EVERY BODY IN ZAMBIA TODAY, AND THIS IS MAN MADE BY LUNGU WHO IS SO EXCITED WITH PRESIDENCY INSTEAD OF SERVING THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA, LUNGU IS MISUSING OUR TAX PAYERS MONEY, AND SURPRINGLY PF CADRES PRAISE IT WITHOUT SHAME. IN WELL TO DO COUNTRIES THIS NOSENSE COULD NOT BE ALLOWED THEY COULD HAVE PASSED A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE FOR PF TO STEP DOWN AND HOLD AN EARLY ELECTIONS, AS FOR ZAMBIANS WE CONTINUE PRAISING FAILURE VOTE FOR CHANGE HH IS THE WAY OUT.

  26. Came 2016 pipo massively voted for change & voted for HH. But because Edgar /PF vowed & threatened not to accept defeat which they were sure of, they openly & viciously stole votes for HH & UPND at all costs. They stole over 300,000 votes but to date their criminal tricks are used & are working. They have succeeded in manipulating the judiciary & have ignored th rule of law completely. HH is th winner of 2016 Presidential elections & we all know it but even Petitions hve bn frustrated by the ConCourt due to bribes. To day Sec to Cabinet is circulating Edgar inauguration next wk, are sure that is right to do when the Petition wasnt heard? Why wasnt Edgar tasked to step aside as the law states till Petition is heard? Shame on Zambian Judiciary. Has Mambilima now agreed to inaugurate in…
