UPND Leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema in Kanyama

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says the loans being given to marketeers by the PF government are too little to make positive impact in their lives.

Speaking when he featured on Komboni radio this morning Mr Hichilema said with the high cost of commodities a K2000 cannot make any impact in a business.

He said marketers should continue receiving the money because it was their money which the PF was distributing to them and that they should consider it to be a grant because his party will write off all the loans given to them by the PF when they get into office next year.

“The money which the PF is giving marketeers as loans is just too little. What can a 2000 do in terms of improving your business? It can’t do anything because the cost of doing business has gone up, transport is expensive, commodities are expensive so that 2000 is just a drop in an ocean.

We encourage you to get that money and eat it because it is your money which the PF is giving you. When we assume office in August those loans will be written off, they are grants and we will increase those grants so that you are able to improve your businesses meaningfully as opposed to what this government is doing,” he said.

And Mr Hichilema says his government will ensure that essential institutions such as schools and health institutions are well staffed and workers motivated to ensure quality public service delivery.

He said government workers needs to be motivated to ensure that they deliver quality services to the public who are their employers.

“When we are in office we want to make sure that a public worker is motivated. We want to make sure that infrastructure such as schools and clinics is near to the people regardless of where they are. There are times when sick people die in a queue because the hospital does not have enough workers we don’t want that to be happening under our watch,” he said.

    • God Save Us. This is sickness and desperation.

      HH must realise that not every loan obtained even from financial institutions is obtained for investmeets. At times people get small loans to pay off bills such as :

      1. Unexpected Expenditure
      2. Bereavements Bills
      3. Medicals
      4. Problems caused by nature.

      Most companies provide small loans and advancements to pay off bills.

      HH really sucks. Time after time he has failed to articulate what he would do differently.

      This is a person who has failed to provide an Alternative Budget when surely he is an economist and has assess to Budgetary Committees through his MP’s.

    • Abanabo kuwayawayafye! Everything EL does he condemns and besides that he’s encouraging people to steal from government by not paying back the loans, what kind of a leader is HH? What kind of a society are we going to have if he encourages stealing from government like he did and became rich?

    • I expect this kind of comment to come from a lay man who knows nothing about business. Mr Heky Heky No! should know that any credible bank big or small always starts its customers with a small loan, then depending on how well one handles the small loan, the bank can review and give a bigger loan. That’s just common sense!

    • If these are the upnd economic development plans….. telling the people to eat the money instead of investing the little they are getting from govt, then we are in big trouble..

      If you write off these loans, tell us how much you will give them instead of talking in generality of increasing the amounts

      under upnd, people will perpetually be beggars with no prospect of getting out of poverty and economic deprivation

      This is real desperation at work…..

    • Giving K2000 ( = to $185 ) to someone who is unemployed in shanty compounds to start selling vegetables on the market and make some basic standard of living is far much better than nothing, in a nation without welfare for the poor

      How is HH inspiring those that want to give it a shot by telling them to chew the money. Why can’t he match PF and give the people grants from his pockets.

      For a man who is an economist this guy is very Satanic and Insultacious. He appears to be on the wrong foot all the time – he opens his mouth.

      Is this the change he wants to bring…?

    • EVEN INCREASING THE LOANS BY K1 CAN BE CALLED AN INCREMENT. SO, CAN YOU JUST SPECIFY BY HOW MUCH YOU ARE GOING TO INCREASE THE LOANS. YOU KNOW THIS BOY (HH), THINKS ZAMBIANS ARE STUP!D. HH MUST STOP INSULTING THE INTELLIGENCE OF ORDINARY ZAMBIANS. SINCE WHEN DID MARKETEERS START ACCESSING LOAN FACILITIES FROM COMMERCIAL BANKS? IS IT NOT JUST IN PF GOVT? SO, HH YOU THINK BANKS CAN START GIVING HUGE LOANS TO CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE JUST KNOWN A BANK TODAY? I DOUBT IF HH IS A QUALIFIED ECONOMIST, AT ALL.

    • PF minions have now come out of hiding. When LT reported hundreds of millions of unvouched kwacha un accounted for they all hibernated underground.

      HH means what he is saying because its true. What can K2000 do for a marketeer who makes more that in a month. HH is giving them good advice to eat the money because it is money PF is stealing from them through increased tarrifs on energy and deliberately high fuel prices.

      What marketeers must not do is sell the voting right buy selling voters card to PF.

      VOTE UPND FOR A BETTER ZAMBIA.

    • Even Zambia as a country asked for debt write-off/forgiveness 2006! Zambia as a country gets grants from other governments. Written-off & grants meant Zambia never pays anything back. That’s how Zambia came out of HIPC .
      HH just said he will turn the loans into grants. What’s wrong with that? Why subject poor people to further misery over that was meant for them but stolen by PF thru road contracts only to be given back to them as loans? HH meant that there are services GRZ ought to provide to citizens for free (health, education) but that money was stolen. So why repay what is yours? Equally advise government to stop lobbying for debt write-offs & grants.

    • This is nothing but a campaign ploy, promises UPND may not be able to deliver. Most likely they mean well, but they should tell the people they have a better way of giving out loans, or grants than the PF admin is doing. Telling people that this is “their” money, and they should “eat” it is reckless, and promotes laziness, dependence, and a false sense of entitlement. What if the rest of the Zambian population say they want K2000 to “eat” too? Tell these small business people that you appreciate the effort they’re making in trying to make a living for themselves. And that you will see to it that better opportunities, expanded grants and loans , are made available to them. Telling them to “continue receiving the money, because it’s THEIR money,” is wrong.

  2. Desperation at its worst. Such populist sound bites are a recipe for historic disaster in the making. Laugh at it and discard as rubbish for the real world. Total utopia on imaginary premise that Zambians are irredeemably daft. Give us another of these halluboo on the fly maybe.

      Who is playing populist politics here between PF bribing voters with K2000 or HH who is telling people the truth.

      Only morally upright people can see that HH has beaten PF on its populist agenda.

      This has caused more worries among PF top officials.

  3. As a business man hh should know that you start small and grow your money. How can you plant the seed of entreprenuership if you advise those that have gotten loans not to pay back. He is just encouraging the culture of not paying back meaning even if you give the marketeers more money they wont be responsible enough to pay back. if you cant pay back a small loan what guarantee is there that you will pay back a bigger one

      You are too IT ignorant!
      The flag does not really determine where you are physically. Consult us IT specialists first before vomiting nonsense. Let me put you in the right perspective:
      Flag is determined by e-mail last two/three-letter top-level domains. So three-letter top-level domains, like .com, .net, & .gov, are nearly always American web sites. Two-letter domains, like .jp & .ca and .co.uk and .nz, are for other countries other than the USA.
      Equally .zm, .org.zm, gov.zm are are all zambian sites.
      .zw, .org.zw, gov.zw are are all Zimbabwean sites.
      .za, .org.za, gov.za are are all South African sites.

  7. Its all political rhetoric as our good friend Wynter would say. The point is the average Zambian voter is so gullible that all you need to do is tell them what they want to hear and you get their votes. Sata was the master of these fake promises and it seems HH has learnt from the best or worst depending on your perspective. But the truth is it is our money and people just have to do a donchi kubeba. Get the money but vote for your preferred candidate after all its secret ballot.

  8. HH, how are you going to ensure that civil servants are motivated and schools,clinics and hospitals are near communities with out increasing civil servants salaries and building more social and economic infrastructure to ease service delivery? In short you (HH) agree that with what the PF has been doing for the last 4 years in which case the voters on these issues may not be so easily convinced that you will be different from PF. It appears there is agreement that we need to motivate the civil service,build infrastructure to improve service delivery like the PF is trying to do but you miss to say how different you will do it! You may not know how what difference those K2,000s made in marketeers’ lives so since it was the first time they got it and from PF,they may not trust you with you…

  9. @ Shebele Manda. I Completely agree. this is cheap politicking by HH Kalusa as usual. Dangote started his business with $3,000 borrowed from his uncle. Dandote repaid the loan. His uncle did not write it off. This dunderhead is encouraging ‘fya Boma’ mentality, Sangwapo – like he did when privatising our companies. Absolute warped thinking!

    • The PF is giving those “Loans” as a campaign gimmick to gain votes. If they were legitimate, they wud have given them thru a legitimate financial institution.

    • @Skodogo,PF has already provided the K2,000. We are now in election time and what PF may do is to promise them an increment if voted into power and to write off the current K2,000. We are now in time of promises. Who do you think would these marketeers believe? And don’t forget,most of these marketeers who received this money might have by now become PF supporters so to change may be a bit hard!

How can someone operating a small scale business grow with the current economic situation? And look at the competition Zambians are faced with (chinese, Somalilans etc) are selling cheap vegetables, chickens. How do you expect these marketers to compete if the can only afford the small chickens and lowest agricultural inputs that result in low yield? If that money that is been siphoned through Zesco and. Eurozone loans is utilized properly then we can afford to support our marketers and even other small businesses

Am begging to doubt whether you started from the scratch- I now agree that you amassed your wealthy from privatization, we had so much respect for you as a learned man. Ba HH please also read in the bible on the parable of talents. Every business has a starting point be it K2000 or K5000, you can still grow this business to a big empire. i started by selling pamela (mealiemeal) at my grand mothers gate in Chimwemwe Kitwe. From a bag of mealie mealie (25kg), i now have 3 butcheries and am an agent for ZB, Zamseed and National milling. i have working capital of K750,000 and assets worth over K1,000,000. so HH, tell us something else not this crap.

  45. I thought the money is meant to be invested, not eaten. Is eating money a new business concept HH? Please let’s not take money out of circulation by eating it.

  46. I am disappointed with the statement from bwana HH. Banks are already complaining that Zambians have a culture of not paying back loans from banks. HH wants to build that culture in Zambians of not paying back loans. To matters worse, he is telling them to ”eat” the money instead of investing the money in income generating ventures. Desperation indeed. Is he going to cancel Membe’s debts to banks?

  54. Is it true that the loans PF is giving to marketeers is the money PF store from marketeers? Or the money is coming from taxes collected from Zambians? If these loans are coming from taxes, and UPND personalises the money to PF, then the president of UPND is promoting anarchy. Here is how.

    If UPND will have the power to write off the loans given by PF, it means the loans are government loans. Which means every party that will get in government will always write off government loans. And if we considered that government offered K2,000 loans to 20,000 marketeers, the government looses K40,000,000 That a lot of money to loose for a president who wants to improve government services to the Zambians.

    UPND has also condemned road construction. Where will they get the money to build…

  55. @ Gen, you mean you are so dumb to understand that k2000,00 cannot help a marketeer in any way? Don’t you understand that this is bribery. UPND is right to tell marketeers who are already beggers that they will right off the loans. PF has not done anything to improve these marketeers lives and is now bribing them with tokens just for votes? Is that mockery?

    Be objective. My family member are poverty stricken in markets and I have told them all to try UPND. Lungu has no vision. I am going home to help campaign and I will help tell marketeers to ditch PF.
