Hakainde Hichilema

United Party for national Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has said that he is patiently waiting for August 11 2016 to get to the office of the President.

Mr. Hichilema has also urged Zambians to persevere with what they are going through saying things will be well after August 11th polls.

He noted that there is only a few months left before August 11th, thus the people of Zambia should keep their resolve citing that there is no need to fear or be intimidated.

Mr. Hichilema added that he is hopeful that Zambians will not make the same mistake they made during the January 2015 elections but is confident that they will give him an opportunity to get to State House, adding that the Patriotic Front should start preparing itself to leave government come august 11 2016.

And the UPND leader has that PF has been working hard to de-campaign themselves among the youths by taking away meal allowances from students without warning at a time of rising food prices and diminished job prospects.

In an official statement released to the media, the UPND leader said that the actions of PF appear to alienate them from a large body of new voters.

Below is the full statement

OFFICIAL STATEMENT

The PF Threat to Our Youth

To any sane observer it must seem that in the past fortnight the PF has been working hard to decampaign itself among the youth, first taking away meal allowances from students without warning at a time of rising food prices and diminished job prospects, and then just a few days later failing to act after UPND youth supporters were attacked by PF cadres in broad daylight during Youth Day celebrations.

These actions, that appear to alienate a large body of new voters, have even left some wondering whether the PF has already resigned itself to its fate on 11 August 2016 and are now simply enjoying their last weeks in office without much regard to what the people think. In the UPND, however, we are increasingly concerned that there is something darker and altogether more worrying going on here – a serious and concerted attempt to intimidate, disenfranchise and disillusion young Zambians.

This follows from past PF behaviour, which has become increasingly intolerant of opposing voices over the past five years, particularly under President Lungu’s premiership. Whether it’s opposition politicians or popular musicians, the PF has been willing to try locking people up in order to stem the public criticism of their track record in office, while at the same time continuing on its endless campaign of by-elections and expansion of the size of Cabinet so they can tempt sitting MPs over to government benches.

This is all directly working against any talk of empowerment by the PF. In our mind youth empowerment requires the free and open flow of information, it requires good role models in leadership positions, and it requires serious resources be made available and distributed without favour based on political allegiance. These are all things we are ready to commit to in Government as UPND.

My message to you as this week comes to a close is that the violence last weekend was abhorrent and we must continue to call for justice, but as we do so we must not be blind to these more subtle, but nevertheless deeply concerning, trends. It is very important that between now and 11 August 2016 we all become Ambassadors for Change and Peace and remind friends and family that their vote can and will make a difference, that there is a better way for Zambia and finally that there is hope for us all, particularly our youths who have all of life’s rich journey ahead of them.

  1. Keep on dreaming Hichilema. It’s your right. But many of us won’t vote for you. No Under 5s allowed in state house.

    • Many of us will vote HH! HH is winning in the first round. He is the only hope Zambians have. why would anyone vote anyone else? The current govt can not do anythings – whatever they do gets messed up. Maize, Exchange rate, Students, fuel everything is messed up. Cost of living is very high too. All the PF knows is violence and hate.

      PF’s last day in power is 11 August! Thereafter we will have a decent govt run by HH!

    • look beyond just going to state house. somebody promised us heaven in 90 days only to see hell on earth within the same period. HH is so obsessed with sate house that’s why he is welcoming even thieves to once holy party. lay your corrupt free, theft free and violent free legacy foundation now. Otherwise you could be worse than the PF and MMD regimes combined.

      Who told you that the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise made a mistake by voting ECL into office. That statement simply shows that you loathe the same people you want to lead. What happens once you have the instruments of power? Loathe them even more so.

      Listen, the smart people of this Enterprise are so smart that they will never allow you to lead them. Wake up and smell the coffee … Vote ECL, ladies and gentlemen!

    • Hichilema said and I quote, ” … which has become increasingly intolerant of opposing voices over the past five years, particularly under President Lungu’s premiership.” Premiership?!!!! Oh my goodness!!!

      These are called political gaffes, faux pas, solecisms … CNN/MSNBC/CBS/ABC, etc political pundits would have devoured him alive for not understanding our system of government and yet wanting to be leader of the same.

      Hey HH! We don’t have a premiership here. The smart people of the Zambian Enterprise elect a CEO who presides over their affairs in the presidency!! He is called a President not Premier … big difference, got it?

      I don’t think you live in Zambia.Things are hard here we warned the fools all we saw were new housing complexes being built by kabovas,expensive cars being driven by kabovas.Since you are not in Zambia let me put you in the know.Today when you see an expensive car on the road it is either being driven by a PF Kabova or their corrupt colleagues the Chinese.When you see a corolla that is a Zambian for you.Not to add when you see an expensive complex coming up it is either a PF Kabova or a Chinese.

      Over my dead body … your HH will never be President and CEO of the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise under my watch!! Just wait until August 12, 2016 … he will be entered in the genis book of world records as the only Zambian to have lost the presidency 5 years in a row.

      The smart people of our enterprise can never be illusioned in an ignis fatuus to elect HH for high office. I trust their judgment and the real king makers are not the diplomats either, we the people are!

      So, come August 12, 2016 … let’s revisit this. ECL will be President not HH … I trust the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise and they have never let me down even if that meant voting my UNIP out of office.

      We wish everyone God speed!! Furthermore, God has not said HH is going to be president, so don’t even use God’s name in vain baba! What you need to be prepared for is the declaration of HH in the genis book of world records as the only Zambian to have lost the presidency 5 years in a row.

      For crying out loud, come clean for once but the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise keep beating your candidate as well as show your types that the elites don’t run this country, the diplomats don’t run this country, the media does not run this country … we the people do!!

      Carry on and God speed! HH is just about to enter the genis book of world records as ECL gets the mandate for the next 5 years. Live Long & Prosper … Zambia Is Greater Than Any Single One Of Us!!

WITHIN SUCH A SHORT TIME THEY HAVE BORROWED MORE THAN THE UNIP GOVERNMENT BORROWED IN 27 YEARS. PRESIDENT MWANAWASA GOT US FREE FROM THE IMF AND WORLD BANK SLAVERY, PF HAS TAKEN US BACK INTO THEIR GRIP. THINGS WILL GET WORSE AFTER 11TH AUGUST IF YOU MAKE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE TO VOTE FOR PF. THOSE WHO ARE STANDING ON PF TICKET AND THEIR SUPPORTERS DO NOT MEAN WELL FOR ZAMBIA. THEIR MOTIVE IS TO GO INTO GOVERNMENT TO EAT AND FILL UP THEIR POCKETS.

  5. Comment: you can’t play such kind of pschology on me. Am also educated. Honestly speaking, ECL is mature leader and full of wisdom and i think will carry the day. Remember abakali tabalanda landa. Mind you i have witnessed hardships in zambia since i was young but now am grown up and have not died. Even this time we will pull through as a country with ECL at the helm beacuse he is not the one who has manufactured the problems am facing as a citizen. Therefore i will remain focused.

    • All self proclaimed prophets are bound to fail. So is your silly HH. Poverty is not one man solution and there varying factor that cause poverty. Lungu did not cause it. When you take a look around you will see that the world economy is in some negative shift and countries like Zambia are on the receiving end. This is not Lungu or PF. If your HH was a true economist, he was going to be telling you the truth, but because all he wants is power, he has chosen to mislead you. Unfortunately you are so brainwashed to an extent that you no longer use your God given intelligence, but that seen through the small brain of HH. HH will not win this election. Period.

  15. There is nothing wrong with a little bit of confidence, but I just hope he’s not being c0cky and overconfident. I hope they are putting in enough ground game and unprecedented grassroots campaign. Knowing the Zambian electorates, they are easily bribed by alcohol and overnight Nshima.

    It’s easy to predict the mood and voting patterns of the urban folks in Lusaka and C/belt but those in Mporokoso and Shang’ombo, no one knows how they will vote and these are the folks who vote in numbers. And then there’s is potential rigging of elections by the govt.

    They need to crunch real numbers and not just via a computer software while sitting in an air conditioned room in Lusaka.

  27. The wild card is Central Province – which can go either to UPND or PF – with 767,415 or registered voters or 9.6% of the total registered voters.
    What this means therefore is that for UPND to win under the current arrangement of 50 percent plus one, they have to obtain 3,987,071 of registered voters from the PF strongholds. The question is: is it possible for them to get such a large number of voters from the PF strongholds? Even if you give UPND all the registered voters in Central Province, they still fall short. So what is the basis of HH’s confidence that he will be in State House after this year’s elections?

    • Comment: Your analysis falls short of the confounding factors bearing in mind that we have other political parties that have strongholds at there level in those provinces. The numbers will be shared… the margin will determine the strondest holder… if I were u I would not include copperbelt on PF strongholds… it’s a 50-50 …

    • Your analysis should perhaps have featured Bemba/East (32.7) v Barotseland.(27.4 + Lusaka rural, Lambaland, Central Province Bantubotatwe). Barotse are numerically dominant.

      The wild card is Lusaka and Coppperbelt urban. Economic prosperity, more jobs, lower taxes, good governance and more money in the pockets is what could help PF if they have delivered.

    • Maikalange stop misliding us what matters is the number of votes cast for Hh or Lungu.People can register but fail to vote.so keep banking on figures you will be in a rude shock.by the true Bembas are not for Lungu.only those in muchinga and luapula pehalps in town.Hh will win all the rural votes there is nothing to show in rural areas in terms of agriculture.

  28. We are getting rid of poor fools, mediocre leaders with parasitic long term agendas. You fail to make it in your private lives and expect politics to feed you on tax payers money. We are voting HH without any compromise come 11/08, period!. From now and beyond, only the best will ascend to the Presidency. A mistake was made and we are here to control and eliminate the damage caused.

    …after dissolution of Paley, I wont be surprised if Kaingu switched camp to UPND….he hasn’t even been all that critical of UPND if you have observed….UNZA used to prepare meals for us but bcos of giving us beans day in day out…we had to revote time and again…it was then decided that we be given money to buy food of our liking that was the birth of food allowance….its either you maintain the allowance or revert to cooking for students…..

Commands, demands and orders to the gov’t to do the impossible. Frightening us within an inch of our lives with EU, West threats to us if we don’t vote for him.

Who only became fat after entering state house and the bible says that you can’t remove a rogue in your friend’s eye before removing yours so how can lungu lessen our problems when he failed to lessen his.think twice my fellow Zambians God has given us another chance to choose our best amongst Zambians.

Clearly, most of the zealots gleefully started writing before reading the whole story. Ba LT, where does it say HH is patiently waiting to get into State House and that there are only a few months left? Is not HH talking about the PF threat to the youth? This kinkind of reporting is nauseating!

  41. Zambians, lets open our eyes and see what is happening. Most of corrupt, selfish and failed politicians have left MMD and PF. As we speak, 90% of UPND leaders are the same misfits of leaders who could not offer any meaning contribution in the government they formed. PF and MMD are relatively clean from these corrupt leaders. I therefore believe that UPND was going to be an alternative if they were not allowing these misfits of leaders who are job seekers. Wait for adoption and see, there will be maybe less than 2% real UPND members and 98% will be new comers (corrupt job seekers). HH maybe a good guy who will be surrounded by the recycled politicians. So there will be no change at all.

    Then again this is where you see the hopeless kaponya thieves regrouping using multiple accounts to try and sow tribal hatred. Most of them are the PF officials who have enriched them selves at the expense of the country and are now afraid of losing the chance of looting.
    Any article that concerns the economy or the many challenges Zambia faces, you don’t see these hopeless chaps bar a one or two of them.

    Indeed come August, Zambia shall be free.

  44. LOL- As some have observed, any objective person reading what HH has said will agree that the LT spin Doctors have come up with a misleading heading. It is a far cry from HH’s theme ‘PF Threat To Our Youth’.
    But that aside, what is clear is the fact that none of the responses have addressed the points HH has raised. My rational sense tells me that’s because HH’s points are undeniable. Period.

  45. One other comment about this HH pronouncement is the unrealistic promises of ending people’s sufferings as soon as he wins the elections. This is what is wrong with the Zambian politics… surely he knows too well that’s not possible. It will take many years to undo the misery that UNIP, MMD and now PF have inflicted on the country over many years. The best he could do is lay good foundation structures whose ‘fruits’ may not be realised until many moons away down the track. Not sure why Zambians are taken for a ride and believe this kind of garbage.

  47. With so many negatives in the zambian economy, HH will win in round one and pf knows that. The way I solve problems is not the same way my neighbour would solve the same kind of problem. Right now pf is busy channeling borrowed money to projects that are not ending the suffering of many Zambians. HH is the right person for plot 1. At individual level he has managed his businesses successfully.

  48. LT, your statement is a careless manipulation of facts. I read the actual statement twice and never came across anything similar to ‘I’m patiently waiting to get into State House, there is only a few months”. Your motivation is clear; to take advantage of uneducated but emotional cadres who comment without understanding; let alone read. All these commenting negatively about HH (Three people using different names) have not read the statement. They are excited because your headline projects what their itching ears want to hear. The LORD save Zambia. I have a lot of respect for LT among all social media but this headline is in total bad taste.

  52. LOL- The fact that all those opposed to HH’s observation have FAILED to debate on the pertinent points raised in the published full official statement those theme is ‘The PF Threat To Our Youth’ is confirmation that the points are undeniable. Simple as that.
    So, like sheep in ‘Animal Farm’ by George Orwell, it is noted they have chosen to move away from the official statement and gone on to attack the misleading preamble drafted by LT spin Doctors. This is further conformation.
    LOL. Its like Quicksand. The more you wriggle, the deeper you sink.

  53. That is very good HH, patience is very good indeed. Remain patient until 2021. For now, no matter how bad you think that things are in Zambia, or how bad they may actually be, we know for certain that you are not the viable alternative that we may desire. How can you be? Indeed, how can any sane person make an alliance with Mmembe and the cartel, after all their thefts of public funds from DBZ, National Airports corporation, Revenue authority etc, all under the pretext of legal gymnastics. It all boils down to the same thing: corruption and downright theft. To me, HH you shot yourself in the foot by that bond to Mmembe. By that act alone, never will you ever see the inside of State House, unless you accept to be invited for a state function.

Let me ask a sincere question here especially to so called christians who support HH because he is there tribes man. When last did you here HH acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ in his so many statements since he entered the political arena. Masons are very dangerous people, they are the ones controlling most of the industries around and they are his friends thats why they dished out money to wipe out dollars on the market and now they are purchasing meali meal to just make citizens rise against government. Thats not leadership its satanism. Just tell people alternative policies and they will check if thats what they want or not. God will never allow that to happen. Zambia for Jesus!

This August the voting pattern will be the same for HH plus some new votes of course. On the other hand, all of ECL’ supporters who did not vote in January 2015 will rise to the occasion plus new voters and give him a resounding 50+1 first round knockout. Wish you well HH in your anticipated retirement into political oblivion.

    • You stupid *****. Why should you insult other Zambians just because they differ with you politically. You think your HH can win with your attitude. That is why you force people to think that you people cannot be good leaders because you seem not be as cultured as other Zambians because traditionally you spend more time with animals, and therefore out of tune with general social norms.

      HH, just like what you are doing is decampaigning himself.
