HH greeting multitudes in Mongu
HH greeting multitudes in Mongu

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has called on law enforcement agencies to fully investigate reports that some suspected UPND cadres attacked Vice President Inonge Wina’s family in Mongu.

Mr Hichilema said all culprits should be brought to book.

He was speaking at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport upon arrival from Western Province from his mobilisation tour.

‘We thank God for travelling mercies as we safely arrived back in Lusaka. On the alleged attack on Vice-President Inonge Wina’s family in Nalolo we call on law enforcement agencies to fully investigate the incident and bring culprits to book. We don’t condone any acts of violence, whether by UPND or any cadres and we condemn the incidence in the strongest terms,’ ,Mr Hichilema said.

He said the UPND have been victims of severe violence and they know how it hurts.

‘Even in Mongu some of our sympathisers were shot with live bullets by the police themselves , yet we had permits for all our meetings in the area,’ he said.

Mr Hichilema said a number of UPND supporters are currently in hospitals, with some having been transferred from Copperbelt to UTH in Lusaka because of the seriousness of their injuries.

‘Even in Mongu some of our sympathisers were shot with live bullets by the police themselves , yet we had permits for all our meetings in the area,’ he said.

‘As we have said before, we must love one another and remain peaceful at all costs. We seek leadership to better the lives of our people through robust economic transformation.’

He added, ‘And this is only possible if we work together and commit ourselves to living in peace and harmony. Looking forward to a great week and God bless you all.’

    • As a PF supporter,I welcome this statement from HH…….it is my prayer that both PF and UPND shall not only condemn violence but learn to coexist with people who have different political ideologies…….after all we’re all Zambians.

    • Thats a mark of a man destined to be a good president. Not Lungu and his stooges who issue inflammatory statements to incite cadres to attack UNPD in CB . Innonge under the instruction of Lungu himself issued a careless statement banning UPND from going to the CB and the cadres acted as instructed.

      True to Lungu’s word via Innonge UPND was attacked in CB but all the PF thieves including its president praised the cadres instead of condemning the violence.

      For how is UPND going to put up with PF violence before it starts to hit back big time as the UPND numbers are growing at the speed of lightening.

      2016 vote UPND, the only party to restore Zambia ‘s true democratic tenets and its economy.

    • HH if ypu win, please make sure the Police do their work and not to be partisan? the nonsense of feeding the government in power should stop. this is because, police force has been politicized? Country security including military should not be serving any individual or party.. we have to stop this silliness. its pathetic.

    • HH has spoken a lot of sense. Violence is not welcome in Zambia. Over-zealous cadres from UPND and PF must be tamed. In fact, I think HH and Resident Lungu must have a one-on-one meeting to try and fix this violence issue on both sides. We say no to barbarism. One Zambia One Nation.

  1. Thanx to HH for condemning the attacks – all the attacks just wish dead NBC could be non-partisan and report everything. But as we all know that is a wish.

    In the meantime can we have pics from the so-called attacks on VP’s house as we have been shown the pics from UPND secretariat also injured people.

  3. I want to thank the HH for his wisdom and condemning the attack of bo INONGE WINA’S family. Our aim as UPND is Economic transformation and killing innocent people. This kind of stone age politics of resorting to fights instead of dialogue should be condemned by all citizens. My take this opportunity to advice the PF that the PF cadres whom you have trained into policemen and women will one turn against you. We have well document evidence of PF cadres who were used to usher Lungu at Mulungushi Rock of authority in Kabwe. They even managed Roadblocks and yet they were not police. These Guys have been deployed in police and are the one who are causing all this trauma in peoples’ lives. We shall see if they will manage to stop the will of the people. Don’t say we never warned you.

  5. We cannot and shall not believe you Akainde. By just saying there is too much poverty in Nalolo which is vice president Inonge Wina’s constituency, that was enough for your foolish supporters to react. You coerced them to descend on innocent citizens. Akainde you’re a bad leader. One wonders how can he or she see light at the end of a tunnel with your mediocre type of leadership?

    • Isaac I doubt if you are normal. May be you harbor some hatred of some kind. Your vice president in her apology even doubted if the people who attacked the UPND secretariat were PF but you said nothing. Its people like you who don’t have objectivity that are creating a problem for our beloved country. At least this man has said something sensible to urge even the police to bring to book all those who will be found wanting. I pray that you see things beyond your brain washed mind.

I HAVE CONFIRMED THE POSITION AND ITS REALLY A MALICIOUS ONE. WHEN SHALL WE THINK OF THE BETTERNESS OF OUR MOTHER ZAMBIA. LETS NOT BE BLINDED BY MALICIOUS STORIES. PLEASE REQUEST FOR PHOTOS AS EVIDENCE.

  8. NO ONE WAS ATTACKED IN MOUYO.

NDELOLESHA FYE BANE……………………..THE TIPPER IS FOR CHNESE COMPANY WORKING ON MONGU-KALABO ROAD

    Dear Editor, Please Hide My ID.
    There was no any single attack on Innonge Wina’s residence. I am a police officer and a resident of Nalolo Constituency and I can confirm to you that there was no such attack on the Vice President‘s resident. In any case, an attack on the Vice President ‘s compound is Not possible even by well…

  9. Politics of violence should come to an end people of God. We are one people and we belong to the same God. I must also commend HH for coming in the open to condemn violence. We expect such altitude from all well meaning Zambians. Let us say no to violence. May God Almighty bless our mother zambia

  10. PF IS FANNING VIOLENCE IN THE COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE UNDER A SERIOUS POLITICAL THREAT FROM THE OPPOSITION WHICH IS BECOMING MORE FAMOUS THAN THE RULING PF PARTY. LUNGU IS A DANGEROUS CRIMINAL WHO IS BUSY CORRUPTING SOME JOBLESS ZAMBIAN YOUTHS TO CAUSE ANARCHY AND LAWLESSNESS WHERE EVER HH GOES TO CARRY OUT HIS CAMPAIGN OBLIGATIONS AS A PROSPECTIVE HEAD OF THE NATION. LUNGU IS A COWARD. HE IS DEAD SCARED THAT HH WILL BEAT HIM IN NEXT YEAR’S ELECTIONS. ABASH LUNGU ABASH! ABASH HOOLIGANISM BY PF ABASH!

    • Obatala! The biggest hypocrites are our church leaders who only speak against the opposition!! Brown envelopes at work!!!! I didn’t hear any church leader condemn the police when Madam Nawakwi was arrested in Kitwe, nor when innocent citizens were being brutalized in Kitwe last week.

  11. this is what happened, PF guys confronted the convoy for HH from mama wina’s house. when HH’s convoy approached, they went to the motorcade to show off their PF regalia and thats when some UPND cadre jumped off and wired the live lights out them for being provocative to them. they ran back to Mama Wina’s house and i think this is what is being referred to as an attack on her house. for sure the PF cadres must have thought a bit wiser and equally the UPND cadre shouldnt have wired the living lights out PF cadres. i guess its because there has been a series on provocative scenes and i think for the UPND cadre he reached a boiling point and he just had to release the pressure

  16. Zambians will need to know that there was no such attack at the Vice President’s house in Moyo, Nalolo. Its really just shocking that an old woman like her can be made to tell lies like that without shame at all. What did we then pray for on 18th October 2015 if leaders are still telling propaganda lies? How do you expect to attract investors in the country where the residence of the Vice President can be attcked? is that residence not manned by state security?

    Where are the pictures or the people who were injured?

  17. @Chikubabe: One can tell from your language and tone that you are a PF cadre. What is wrong with HH referring to what happened last week? To-date, we have not heard any senior PF leader condemning the hacking of innocent citizens in Kitwe. Even the so-called church leaders are just hypocrites. I am actually happy that it has happened to the Vice-President …… because maybe, this is when people will wake up and realize the extent of this violence.

  18. HH is a True son of Zambia and that is what we expect to hear from a leader destined to be president in 2016. I have never heard Lungu condemn acts of violence by his cadres. His silence is what is encouraging his cadres to be violet. Police who shoot live bullets at innocent and peaceful garthering should be sued and sentenced to jail. Maybe it will teach the police lessons that they are not to champion the cause of a political party but that of Zambians.

  19. HH, I have never liked your party. I will only vote for you because you are an economist and it’s an economist we need for now. An economist who has demonstrated understand of issues especially our situation. Other economists have been there before but track record is poor. At least we have your track record in the private sector.

  25. UPND,u can not ascend to power using violence because u cant match PF in muscle and number. If u re to unseat PF,u ve to carry out a peaceful cunning strategy that attract or pull masses to your party. Realistically, PF still ve huge masses of sympathisers whom u cant match in terms of support base .So far,your strategy of dominating Radio stations is helping a little bit but change callers because most of them ve a TONGA accent which is painting a Tribal picture on the party.

  26. Exactly the words that I advised Dr Canissius Banda to use, not the empty nonsense he uttered, can’t the man learn to shut up if he has nothing to say, or if he is not mandated to speak. For we know that Canissius and GBM are purely window dressing from the tribal point of view, they are not part of the UPND inner circle.
    However, I want to thank and praise HH for condemning violence from all parties including UPND and PF, particularly the violence on Hon Inonge Wina. You could see the poor old lady, my mother, trying hard to hide her anguish and distress. Whoever did that will be in hell very soon, no later than next month, and they will have no chance to vote for their HH, but will have to watch the elections and bashing of UPND from the small high windows of hell. Satans!

  27. And look at that chief satanist Mmembe, did you see what it wrote in today’s Past news editorial? If Zambians did not know it as the chief satan, they would probably listen to it. Is it not the same animal that run the Past news when ba Sata was in power but ruling under its satanic spell? Violence in PF was promoted by its satanic friend Kabimba. The chief satan then did not see anything wrong, while daily singing praises to “Michael” when it was busy bewitching the poor old man to his death bed. And today it can teach us that violence is not good, kwena that is the ultimate in satanic behavoiur, nothing beats that, even the real Satan will soon discipline it for imitating the boss.

  32. This is a good way to start a discussion well done HH. MMD, FDD, Rainbow, PF and UPND can ALL work together to enrich Zambia – we do not want to have differences in the country, ALL these parties have ONE common ideology, JUST ONE (they are all liberal no Capitalists, no Democrasts ideology is the same) – we do not want to be a new Rwanda in Zambia (like Hutus and Tutsis) fighting over tribe. We are one tribe Zambian – so let us have cohesion in our beloved country, save our country, save our nation, save our culture and heritage, SAVE ZAMBIA FROM POLITICAL HATE AND ECONOMIC CHAOS.
    Poverty and hunger are root cause of insecurity. Let us work together and develop Zambia and stop this fighting business and name calling…! Grow up…! When did Zambia reach stage?

  33. I fail to understand the mind of HH. Does the man honestly believe that he can win elections by violence? He has a better chance at winning these elections if from now up to elections time he behaved a sober guy. Really, Lungu has so many things going bad for him, that HH does not need violence to get people to his side. People are reminded everyday about PF’s failed policies. They wake up to hardships, they sleep with their belies empty, now why should one want violence to convince the world that things are bad in Zambia? At household level people incomes have fallen by 1000%, loadshedding has made many families go bankrupt, food has become expensive, transport has become a luxury (most people have now resorted to walking long distances). And HH and his cohorts still believe they have…

  34. Whether or not this was an attack, it is important to speak out against it. Remember in 1969 following an interchange between the President and the Chief Justice, Skinner, there were organized and widespread demonstrations against the judiciary throughout Zambia. An attack was then made on the High Court in Lusaka by the Zambia Youth Service, a uniformed force of the Republic. The building was even broken into. There was no immediate condemnation of the attack and Zambia lost its Chief Justice very publicly.
