HH speaking at the wedding ceremony

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has called on Zambians not to allow politicians to divide the country using tribe race, region.

Mr Hichilema said Zambian should reject politicians who use discriminatory means to ascend to power.

He was speaking on Saturday evening when he officiated at the wedding ceremony of Anderson Kambela Mazoka Jr and Lucy Chanda at Pamodzi Hotel.

Anderson Kambela Mazoka Jr is son to the UPND founding President Anderson Kambela Mazoka.
And Mr Hichilema says marriage is true unifying factor that has defied all odds including racism.

Mr. Hichilema reiterated the need for the country to continue embracing each other through marriage.

The UPND Leader added that Zambia must continue being the beacon of oneness in Africa.
He said the marriage of Mazoka Jr and Lucy Chanda signifies that Zambians cannot be divided on tribal lines.

  1. This article lacks some points, what really happened for HH to condemn tribalism at the wedding of innocent kids, this dude is running out of campaign ideas…….

    • He must have been chocking as he tried hard to “condemn”what gives him political life

      He is such a patronizing joker

    • He was using that beautiful occasion to show why Zambian are not tribal, by the fact that there are inter-tribal marriages, there is nothing wrong with that. Your post is one of those which clearly shows your natural hate for the man, even where he is speaking sense you want to cynically twist it into what is is not. Get a life.

    • What do people want from HH? In more progressive societies people like HH are role models, husband with only one wife. 3 kids and a very successful businessman, sober (doesn’t drink alcohol). In Zambia, all we can do is pour scorn at such a man. What a shame!

    • And soon, God willing, we gonna have a Chanda Anderson Kambela Mazoka Jr (the III) through this beautiful couple. Yet some politicians still see value in promoting tribal politics in Zambia.

      I know this topic is about a wedding—an occasion which should be celebrated without politics. But this is also a great teaching moment for shallow people, both politicians and otherwise, who want to take us back to the dark ages of tribal conflicts and hegemony. This really shows how ordinary Zambians look at each other if only selfish politicians can stop forcing their tribal agendas down peoples throats.

      The GENIUS of our founding fathers, such as our old man KK, was promoting tribal intermarriages. Marriages that have today helped unify our country—for it is indeed hard to demonize your…

      —for it is indeed hard to demonize your own nephew, niece, cousin, extra, born from a father or mother of a different tribe. Say what you may about our so called “uneducated politicians” of the Kaunda era. One thing they NEVER LACKED was WISDOM. Wisdom to foresee the kind of damage unbridled tribalism can do to our country’s social cohesion if left to chance. So in short order they embarked on ‘social projects’ that unified the country. The deliberately encouraged intermarriages and promoted the “One Zambia, One Nation” motto. I mean, it was rare for Kaunda to leave a gathering (small or large) without shouting ONE ZAMBIA, and the crowed responding, ONE NATION!

      Glad to see that younger politicians are now realizing the GENIUS of what our OLD POLITICIANS engineered and championed—not everything that KK and his comrades did was without deep thought or of no social value. The current generation of politicians thought they can simply keep stumbling forward disregarding all that KK did—sometimes even insulting him for it. Now look, tribalism (and its ugly offshoots) has become an Albatross around their necks sinking their political careers.

    • A word of advise to HH if he wants to win the forth coming elections. There are only three people who can add value and bring votes to UPND and propel it to victory. These three names are, GBM, Sampa and Guy Scott. Of all the three, GS is the best, not because is a white man but he is the man easily identified with the popular late president- forget about past differences, pick him as your running mate and you have an easy victory. The beauty with GS is that he breaks tribal barriers, he is the neutral popular man with no tribal tag. GBM and Sampa can also help in that they would somehow also stabilize the northern vote for UPND. The resultant of picking these two is that it may lead to an improved fortune for the party in PF strongholds. Another plus is that GBM has got the financial…

      muscle to put in a splendid campaign challenge minus depending on the party resources while Sampa is popular among the youth and is a good organiser.
      If HH does not go with any of the above, then we might as well forget for good of ever taking over. C Banda is a good man and an intellectual at the same time, but it is not about intellectuals this time around, its about survival! The Doc, is not a well known politician among the masses and not capable of bringing in financial resources as GBM is capable of. Nawakwi is also great, she has built a solid foundation already among the grassroots, question is, would she agree acting second fiddle to HH once more? Maureen is damned good and very intelligent but picking her will bring the Bantu Batantwe talk from the PF during the…

    • IT’S A CASE OF LUCIFER CONDEMNING SIN AND SINNERS. THIS IS ELECTION TIME. HH WILL BE HEARD UN INSTITUTIONALLY, CONDEMNING TRIBALISM AT WEDDINGS AND FUNERALS TO INDIRECTLY DEAL WITH HIS TRIBALISM STANCE. HE WILL NOT CONDEMN IT IN THE NAME OF UOND AND HIS OFFICIAL CAPACITY AS UPND AND HH FLOURISHES ON TRIBALISM. FEW DAYS FROM NOW WHEN ASKED TO CONDEMN TRIBALISM, HE WILL RUSH TO MOUNT SINAI TO ANNOUNCE THAT HE ALREADY CONDEMNED IT. THE OTHER THING LEFT IS LIFTING BABIES AND BEING CLOSE TO DISABLED CHILDREN. WATCH HIM.

CHECK HIS BODY LANGUAGE BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER SAYING WHATEVER HE SAID AGAINST TRIBALISM.

  2. There is no tribalism in zambia,apart from the pre election tribal talks and die off after an election. Zambians are now bored about songs of tribalism and privatisation being championed by pf.

  4. When it comes to who occupies the Presidency, the T-word has been used for the last 50yrs by one group of people. KK at one point resigned for one night because of the same. It was pumped up a notch with the coming on the scene of Mazoka’s overwhelming acceptance by all zambians. The man was demonized,humiliated & sent to an early grave. The same treatment was given to Levy, who they had initially thought was going to be their cabbage. What HH is going thru some of us old enough have seen before. Lungu is slowly being consumed by the same. The challenge now is for right thinking zambians is to rise up & fight the T-word at every occasion. Congrats Andy jr & Lucy.

  8. HH this Mazoka Jr is not your son. HH you can not allow your son or dota marry a bemba. You know and we know it. So dont be a opportunist. Just enjoy free dinner.

    When they said only Tongas can be UPdn President you were quite, when Munkombwe said it is time for Tongas to rule, you were quite.

    Mazoka was a nationalist, the values he taught his children hence this marriage. On the other HH is a tribalist who will never allow his children to marry a Bemba FULL STOP.

Ewe @itizi tula, us we did Our job by voting for the late Andy, But balimwibilafye ama votes, Point of correction Guys, Andy was not a Tonga But a Zambian and that’s how he lived life, unlike balya bambi, bwafya. Baisafye mu party, tabaliko nokubako eko emufyashi Andy alepanga party, Batanfya Saki! But Y? Bcoz he was not Tonga. We are not blind buddy! Just bring back Saki back to Upnd pesidency before he dies and apologise for chasing him from the party he made with his friend, chapwa, then Upnd can win a lot of soul back. Can’t you learn from the late Levy, he so he had stolen from Sata, so he made sure they reconcilled before they both died. It that happens, then most of us will be mute we it comes to T word and Upnd. Its not late, good luck.

    • I agree with this statement, I can only believe HH has reformed if he apologizes to Bo Saki and steps aside! HH is the man he ignited tribal politics in Zambia cause he ascended to that seat by overthrowing an acting Vice President through shouts of only a Tonga can succeed Mazoka as UPND President. Instead of him condemning that he happily rode onto that sentiment and took over the UPND leadership chasing Bo Saki, Bo Lubinda and Bo Mama Inonge Wina. So he needs to apologize to the country for championing tribal policts before pretending at a wedding just because he saw that the beautiful young couple have crossed his self created barrier of tribalism!!!

    HH now needs (must) to come out similarly on a political platform, his usual press statements can do. We need him to disown the tri…ball statement in 2005 that uPMD can only be led by a tonga which has never been been denied to this day. Short of that the tri…ball stigma will stick harder.

    • What nonsense is this? This is not the first inter tribal marriage in this country. As far back as 1985 one of my friends had birthday party for his 5 year old boy. I dropped my spouse and kids – we are married from different tribes. There were more than ten families in attendance and all of them -mark my words- were mixed marriages. There were kids with names like Mutinta Zulu, Misozi Nyambe, Mwangala Bwalya.

  16. Oh dear, so how bad is this tribalism thing in Zambia that there is no moment that passes without an article on tribalism. I’m not sure HH should have said anything about tribalism at such an occasion. And now the wedding will be remembered for a tribalism speech… much have been awkward for the couple to hear all that talk. I think the occasion spoke for itself.

    And I doubt one wedding moment would have a defining factor in the so called tribalism cancer… my missus is but that doesn’t mean that tribalism has ended in Zambia. Obviously I acknowledge that one good moment is a good thing towards eradicating the ‘cancer’.

    • Thanx Maverick for giving bobo the low down. The problem with these guys & their reliance on oral history is they expect us to believe they loved Andy Sr.
      We remember the “stolen cattle at muzoka” story. Similar to the privatisation story they are peddling now. RB knows them well. Just check how they will fight for running mate position in their panga family. Already they are threatening their “cousins” with all sorts of actions if they are not nominated.

  17. @bobo, just as well that HH won the presidential election after Andy passed on to take charge of UPND, otherwise this party would have been history by now had Saki carried the day. Immediately after losing to HH, Saki formed his own party and carried a lot of UPND members with him including Given Lubinda, Batuke Imenda etc. We all know what happened to Saki’s party. He failed to provide leadership and the party died a natural death as his members went back to UPND while others like Given went to join PF. The rest is history. UPND has now grown to be the number 1 opposition party in a very hostile environment. That is leadership for you.

    • You right Saimbwende, Sak ihas too how much association he has with tricky rich characters in our society aor high profile client money swindling scams. He would have been very easy to paint as dirty and the UPND would have been dead by now. Saki was a darling in Livingstone mainly through family ties, he easily won Livingstone Central in 2001, barely scraped trough in 2006 on ULP/PF pact. Lost in lamentably on PF ticket in 2011 only for PF to win with Lawrence in a bye-election.

  21. It’s a well known fact that this coming general elections willbe the most expensive exercise, however the result is a giving. Edgar Lungu will emerge victorious by a landslide.
    HH and his UPND hasn’t managed their affairs intelligently. For example in Choma the people don’t want the incumbent MP they prefer a Clinical Officer Moono instead. Cornillius’ game plan of sabotaging the PF government had backfired.
    Furthermore, cadres like Hon. Nkombo has foolishly allowed themselves to be sacked in…..in confirming that their party is a tribal one….hence like it or not the next elections will be decided on tribe and not anything else. People like GBM will be viewed as traitors of the BEMBELAND.
    In short HH and his UPND are not smart politicians buy proud people of their Heritage,…

  27. It is a true fact that Tonga will never vote for any other tribe other than Tonga, why? It’s on record and the January 2015 being the latest fact just in case you are in doubt. Another free data on Tonga is this, all their MPS (representatives of the people) are all Tonga from Southern Province. So this should tell you more about these minority ethnic group. If you want yourself and your children’s generation to be perpetual slaves in their own country then vote for the tribal party UPND and HH. It’s themselves who have affirmed this that UPND is for Tonga only and make no mistake, they mean just that. Just ask anyone who had worked in an institution led bt a Tonga and find out how they openly employ only Tonga without shame!

  37. Why are uPMD cadres complaining about tri…ball ism? Not too long ago, or even now when it suits them, they have called bembas as monkeys. Actually the motivation of a tonga president arose out their hatred for bembas. Now they have realized that they cannot get anywhere on their own, but it’s too late, the tri…ball stigma is here to stay and will always cost you the elections. Cosmetics like GBM will not help you, GBM does not carry bembaland with him or behind him, he is just a small fish in a sea of many fishes. Just a waste of time and resources that GBM, I hope he is financing himself while in uPMD because otherwise if it’s HH he will regret the wasted expenditure. Basa naunka mebo.

  40. Yambayamba,

    Without belittling our old politicians’ role in liberating this country, the tradition of inter-tribal marriages was not necessarily a product of Kaunda’s One Zambia One Nation slogan or any of his policies. This predates 1964 and was a product of the process of urbanization which started on the Copperbelt in the 1920s and creation of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland in 1953. Those of us born and brought up on the Copperbelt long before independence have memories of inter-tribally mixed families in our neighborhoods before 1964. In our own families, our cousins, brothers, and sisters married people from different tribes.

  41. It was fashionable in those days to have a so-called Christian name and an African surname name like Stanley Tembo and yet this person had a Bemba mother and Ngoni father. I had a childhood friend whose father was a Tumbuka from Lundazi and mother a Sala from Mumbwa, but at home their language of communication was Bemba. One of our neighbors – a Lenje woman who had the notoriety of having married and remarried many times – had children with Lala, Henga (Malawi), Lunda (Luapula), Bemba, and Ngoni fathers. These marriage patterns were very common in most parts of the Copperbelt long before Kaunda ascended to the Presidency of Zambia in 1964.

  42. I think he wanted to show and tell other tribes that Tongas can also marry from other Tribes other than their own. And should he appoint a Tonga as his running mate, you are surely going to see the backlash.

  43. It may be too heavy for you to swallow, but get it from me – Flight HH 2016 will crush terribly again but this time beyond recognition. You need to bring someone with a caliber of Anderson Mazoka. Please, begin to prepare your hearts for an even heavier disappointment after 11th August, 2016. It’s Pf and ECL again until you get healed from your tribalism.

  46. Flight EL2015 J

    hh was actually following the wisdom of Chama…. HH recognised he importance of unit in this country. AND besides he was just invited as a guest speaker at the wedding….”Possible that Chanda gave as a condition to Andy that the Guest speaker should be the Tribalist hh so that she can feel comfortable when in Southern province. And for sure hh was dwarfed … just look at him in a sorry too short a jacket. Ni kachema full time. Ba millionaire tabaishiba no kufwala.

  47. Can someone tell me, is Hakainde Hichilema (HH) related to Mrs Mazoka? I see some resemblance in the two. Is she his elder sister or cousin or what? Look at the picture above and you will know what I mean. Is this how Mrs Mazoka orchestrated HH taking over from her late husband so that everything is kept in the family? If this was the case, then the people of Southern province have been taken for a ride too long. How long will this charade continue?

  48. Comment HH is humble, wise & decent. What we need in is time & era is leadership that is wise. In future there will be no land called Zambia because even our land is being given away under the pretext of investment.
    Meanwhile, the perpetuators of tribalism are well known to every well-meaning Zambian. They say the exact opposite of what they are.
