Opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema arrives to attend a court case at the magistrate's court complex in Lusaka
Opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has vowed never to stop party mobilization activities across the country despite many attempts by the PF Government to stop him.

The UPND Leader has called on party members to continue mobilizing the party at all levels saying there is not time for holiday especially with the current economic situation that requires their urgent intervention.

Mr. Hichilema says he has said it before that the country has numerous challenges that needs all to widely share ideas adding that stopping them from holding meetings like was the case on Friday in Kafue is certainly not one of the solutions that the country needs at the moment.

He says what is even worse is that PF members have continued having meetings in different parts of the country some busy campaigning in the guise of inspecting government projects.

He has disclosed to QFM News in a statement that in their meetings with traditional leaders, the clergy, and business community in Kafue before they were rudely interrupted, they learnt a lot on what is actually required to revamp the ailing economy and the urgent needs for economic diversification programmes that will create decent jobs for people especially the youths.

Meanwhile, PF Media and Publicity Vice Chairman Sunday Chanda says the best opportunity the UPND had to win elections was during 2015 presidential by-elections after the death of late President Michael Sata.

Mr. Chanda says the PF had little time to campaign as they were entangled with succession wrangles and that the UPND had all the time they needed to campaign.

And Mr. Chanda says the UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema will still shoot over the bar during 2016 general elections.

Mr. Chanda says it is illogical for the UPND President to continue thinking that the current social and economical challenges will work to the advantage of the opposition.

Mr. Chanda says it is unfortunate that leaders who are wishing to govern the people are celebrating over the country’s woes saying they do not mean well for the nation.

He says the PF has done tremendously well in its four years of being in office and that Zambians have so many reasons of keeping them in office.

He adds that the statement by the UPND that the PF is a one term project is baseless as Zambians will prove to him that they cannot trust him with power.

  1. The kwacha has nose dived, no investment in power generation since the days of mmd, poor agricultural policies. People are hungry mr chanda. If Zambians return PF back into power, then they will learn the hard way. Zambia will be a police state and a lot of wrong things will take place. This is our chance to put things right. The kwacha is now being propped up by the reserves. Zambia is in trouble

    • Accusing HH of Gloating about the current economic woes is merely sinking to the politics of Alexander Kamalondo and Kangwa Nsuluka. A PF second term will entail more trouble for our country. Using the Euro bond to support the budget is bad enough but if the presence of the IMF is anything to go by then austerity is on its way bringing with it words like essential commodities and forex restrictions. But for the majority of Zambians the serious implications are an increase in load shedding resulting in more jobs loses not to mention the thousands of SME, welders, barbershops and hair saloons with no capacity to buy gen-sets. Runaway $ and £ rate resulting in sky rocketing commodity prices. PF is loath to admit its mistakes this is a perfect storm things are bad really bad.

  4. This corrupt greedy PF must be evicted. Their missmangment and corruption is every where to be seen, like the recent revelations that scholarships abroad are being shared amoungest ministers to give their children and relatives. The poor zambians with no connections in PF have no chance of getting anything.

    • Vote for your corrupt useless PF next year and continue suffering in masses. How is it okay that a president who pretends to be a Christian is so easily compromised and corrupted by simple people like General Kanene, a Bishop Chomba, RB, Dora Siliya, Kaizer Zulu and the Chipata Mafia Families?

      Surprisingly You people do not seem to notice all this.

      We have a president with no morals in Lungu.

      Surely are we that desperate as nation and out of options that we are content with Lungu?

    • Eddy,
      what makes you think Zambians problems can not be solved by a person, Is it not people who created the problems in the first place? You Africans have sunk so low that you accept failure and mediocracy as part of your lives.
      Shame on you and pipo who think like you.

    • Next year it’s nega nega formula in all parts of Zambia. PF has a job to teach Easterners, Copper belt residents and Northerners how to use this formula. Their counterparts in Southern Province know the value of this formula.

  6. I agree with Mr Sunday,the “Southern Province party” had a chance in January which they fluffed. What mobilisation is he talking about,Southern province is already mobilised, its intact. Except that “nega nega” ambush which kachemas unleashed in January will be countered by “wako ni wako” from the Eastern province which will eventually phase out Kachema’s party from our political landscape.2016,ECL nafuti nafuti!!!?

    • Sorry, I can assure you, it will always be voter’s apathy in Northern and Luapula, I have spent half my life shuttling these two regions and I know the attitude when it comes to voting matters, you may be like getting up to 40% registered voters voting.
      Please stop cheating yourself about CB….it will be a 50:50 this time around, the same goes for Lusaka. Mudala, iliko bad with the forth coming elections, wouldn’t be surprised to see your big wigs, the likes Kabwili, your vice president, etc, not returning to parliament building…trend carefully baba, you be chewing the last of the govt monies, so be wise and save wisely!!

    • I can only appeal to wise Zambians that this tactic of labeling HH and UPND as Tribal party will not help solve Zambia’s economic problem . Kaunda failed to cheat people that he was the only savior when the economy began to melt. People of Zambia stop playing with tribalism its a dangerous cancer that will bring genocide. We know the true tribalists in Zambia and are dead scared of HH thinking he will revenge on them ,unfortunately they will be ashamed HH is our Zambian Mandela he will only focuse on the economy and he will form an Inclusive civilized government. Nothing will stop HH from forming Government next year not even the cowards the true Tribalists.

  7. Mr Chanda and your PF leave HH to campaing freely if you think HH is not a factor, why then teargassing and harrasing. KK tried to do the same but people were not on his side in 1991 and the same will happen to pf in 2016. HH will win by landslide mark my word. RB wont help you this time around.

  8. unfortunately mr chanda,a precedent is already their that assuming the presidency after death of the sitting president leads to defeat.i very much doubt if lungu will not fall in the same fate like RB.pf got the january sympathetic votes which will not happen in 2016 just like it happened to RB.2016 pf will be running on LUNGU record and not of sata(mhsrp).

  9. The same things that PF and MCS were subjected to is what you’re doing to the opposition. You are the same as MMD and whatever behaves MMDish I don’t vote for. Can you please tell your police to be fair. We see you PF campaigning everyday but you’re harrassing your friends. Surely how can you do such a thing when you vowrd

  10. Early this year the Malawian prophet, Austin Liabunya, with a track record of false prophecies in his own country told his followers that Hakainde Hichilema would emerge as the new president of Zambia; something which turned out to be an embarrassingly false prophecy. This prophecy was welcomed and publicised by HH’s blog (ZWD). The United Party for Development leader was beaten by Patriotic Front leader Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

  11. I agree that PF should be kicked out as matter of principle, but I doubt any replacement will solve anything in current problems. Its true PF is useless but likewise HH is a tribalist and did acquire his wealth illegally, the people he surrounds himself with like canisius and GBM are greedy hyenas waiting to pounce on govt resources. Im not letting frustration with lungu blind me to fact of the quality of people in opposition, but as way of replacing one incompetent nepotistic group with another , why not!

  12. WHAT IS SO AMAZING US VOTERS IS WHY PF KEEPS ON BLOCKING UPND. I TELL YOU THAT 2016 WILL NOT PASS WITHOUT RESULTS FOR HH TO PLOT 1. WE ARE SUFFERING EVEN A BABY IS SEEING THAT IT IS TAKING ON NURSING BREAST FEEDING AND THE MORE IT CRIES, THE MORE THE NURSING MOTHER BECOMES ANGRY WITH ECL AND HIS SO CALLED PF.
    YOU ARE CALLING DEVELOPMENT AND THE ONLY DEVELOPMENT WE SEE IS ROADS IN LUSAKA AND THOSE ARE THE ONLY CITIZEN WHO ARE ENJOYING THE DEBTS AND ARE EATING THE ROADS WELL. NO DEVELOPMENT IN LUAPULA, CB, WESTERN, NW, SOUTHERN, CENTRAL.
    ONE WHO HATES HH WILL EAT HIS/HER OWN FINGER ONCE WE CHANGE GOVERNMENT. I WOULD RATHER VOTE FOR A FROG THAN DROPPING MY VOTE INTO POWER FAILED.

  16. CHANDA IS JUST NOISE-MAKING BECAUSE HE IS A BENEFICIARY TO THE ON-GOING LOOT BY THE PF GOVERNMENT ON THE COUNTRY’S MEAGER RESOURCES. PF AND LUNGU ARE A FAILED PROJECT IN ZAMBIA, AND SHOULD BE ABANDONED IMMEDIATELY IN ORDER TO REDEEM OUR COUNTRY FROM THESE ECONOMIC WOES. UPND IS THE WAY TO GO TO ALL ZAMBIANS WITH PROGRESSIVE MINDS. ZAMBIA WILL EXPERIENCE A PROSPEROUS COUNTRY OF OUR DREAM UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF HH AND UPND. HH IS A HIGHLY INDUSTRIOUS, ENERGETIC, RESOURCEFUL, AND PROSPEROUS INDIVIDUL, AND WILL INJECT THIS SAME ZEAL INTO THE GROWTH OF OUR COUNTRY. LET US GIVE UPND CHANCE TO RULE US. VIVA HH VIVA! VIVA UPND VIVA!

  18. Surprise surprise! So HH consulted people in Kafue about the solutions to Zambia’s economic challenges and they told him!
    I thought that we were told by his cadres that he as economic manager has all the solutions in his head! If those cadres had said the truth early enough and indicated that HH is no super hero and that he too will lead by asking people the way forward, he certainly would have garnered some votes. But now HH is telling us that he is doing exactly what ECL is doing, consulting people! I am shocked, and then where is the need for change of leadership then?
    But is he consulting chacine, or he is politicking as usual selela kwa ka kaba

  19. HH and Ulya Pa Ni Devil (UPND) have no interest and agenda for the Zambians and this is very well known by the voters. HH interest is just to prove that a T0nga can also be president and thats no what people want. We know very well why he is so desperate about power, its to use government resources to pay back the debt that he has accumulated especially after losing the January 2015 elections.
    You recall that in his desperation, he mistakenly even reviewed the secret that he will bring back Anglo America back to come and steal and misuse our mines again after they ran away. UPND through HH have got so much debt that they ar failing to pay the lenders and the only way out is to give fake and dubious contracts to these as a way of paying back.
    What is the UPND strategy for youth…

    What is the UPND strategy for youth employment is you ask, nothing at all. All you hear from HH is that I have a plan for youth employment! Let him say how he create those jobs now for people to believe him, otherwise, I see the end of this man in 2016.

  21. CHANDA YOU ARE RIGHT HH IS A DREAMER AND SINCE DREAMING IS FREE LET US ALLOW HIM. THE MAN HAS RUN OUT OF CAMPAIGN MESSAGES. HE TALKED ABOUT LATE PAYING OF FARMERS IN JANUARY ELECTION PF HAS ALREADY PAID THE FARMERS THIS YEAR. THE DOLLAR IS GAINING HE HAS NO MESSAGE AGAIN THE ELECTRICITY ISSUE WILL BE GONE IN 2016 AND BY THE TIME HH WILL STAND ON A PODIUM AND CAMPAIGN HE WILL TOTALLY HAVE NO MESSAGE.

    PF HAS STRATEGIES AND IS WORKING HARD TO ADDRESS ALL THE PROBLEMS AND BE ASSURED THAT COME 2016 HH WILL HAVE NOTHING TO TELL THE PUBLIC.

    AS FOR THE TONGAS AND NORTH WESTERNERS LET THEM VOTE FOR HIM BUT HE CAN NEVER WIN THE ELECTIONS FROM 2 PROVINCES THIS IS A FACT THAT HE WILL LIVE AND DIE WITH. PF HAS CBELT, MUCHINGA LUAPULA, LUSAKA, PART OF WESTERN, NORTHERN AND EASTERN SO LET HIM…

    • You are dead on. If HH has to win the presidency he has to win several MPs outside his traditional strong holds. How possible is that? The mistake UPND is making is to equate the up-coming general election to the January presidential by election and thinking that the same confusion will exist in PF. Truth be told, you are assuming too much. Leave room for the inevitable

  22. I know of many teams whose main striker shot over the bar but when play resumed, they went on to score more goals and win the match. So what if it happened this way. HH shoots over the bar. The PF goalkeeper gets the ball and in kicking the ball, he hits his defender and the ball nets in the PF own goal mouth. These things happen in football especially when the opponent uses over aged, over confident, over used, less skilful but talkative players and a visionless coach with a disorganised strategy

  23. Lt stop blocking my messages I am one of the oldest and most respect member of the LT bloggers. If HH is not a factor why are tear gassing him and blocking him to go the Copperbelt.PF cowards hiding behind tribalism and outdated way of doing politics.2016 will come with economic issues top of the agenda and not the old stories of Uyu Mutonga so what do we eat a tribe. Welensyk type of politics do not make sense to us who civilized and born from mixed marriages. To hell with tribal contests we need better schools,hospitals and a better economy generally not only roads.

    • @ SIDO MARK
      So infact now you believe that PF and President Lungu are very serious with development of Zambia because you have just accepted that President Lungu is constructing roads everywhere you go. Lusaka is now a city some is proud to be associated with because of the good roads by EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU. Furthermore, construction of schools, Universities, hospitals are already in very advanced stages, so where will your Under 5 get the vote from?
      Believe it or not, President Lungu will be our President after 2016 elections, unless your Satanist take us all in hell.

  25. If what happened in France had happened in Zambia, the opposition would be celebrating and pointing fingers at Edgar, seeing as an opportunity to State House.
    In contrast look at the unity exhibited by the French people, even the person who wants President Hollande’s position and the Elyssee Palace, has united with the rest of his countrymen, mourning with them, seeking revenge for the common enemy, he has even put aside his ambition to Elyssee palace for this moment.

    • Umuchinshi Usuma you have made very good analysis. I believe that it’s partly because of this extreme form of hypocrisy which KK saw and in his wisdom just declared a one party state. To this effect the only two genuine opposition leaders l have seen to be patriotic to the nation are Fred Mtesa and Alias Chipimo. The rest are so desperate that they even go to the extent of tarnishing the nation’s image to the international community for the sake of winning power. What a shame!!

  27. I find the debate about the two race-horse in the 2016 elections fascinating. It seems in Zambia it’s all about being for or against. There are no neutrals, which is very surprising. Anyway let go straight to the point and ask these two questions. Hope someone can objectly respond. What impact do you think the MPs will play in the 2016 elections, considering that 2015 was a by-election and there were no MPs campaigning? In the same vein to what extent did the infighting affect the 2015 election results and to what extent will a clear and total incumbency play in the 2016 elections?

    Let’s debate ladies and gentlemen!
