FOLLOWING HIS TOUR OF MILLING PLANTS, HAKAINDE HICHILEMA MUST APOLOGISE TO ZAMBIANS FOR LYING ABOUT MAIZE EXPORTS AND IMPORTS ON BBC – SUNDAY CHANDA, PF INFORMATION COMMITTEE

MPIKA, 24TH APRIL 2016 – Now that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has been caught in his own web of lies following his tour of milling plants in Lusaka, we demand that he personally apologizes to the Government and people of Zambia over his lies that Zambia had exported all the Maize for $200 per tonne and imported the same for $500 per tonne.

He further owes BBC an apology for feeding them with deliberate lies to propel his political ambitions. His lies were designed to present to the outside world that a Government of the people and for the people, the Patriotic Front (PF) was irresponsible and did not care about the welfare of its people. We challenge Mr. Hichilema to substantiate his lies regarding the exportation and importation of maize or we take it that he is a liar.

Today, 24th April 2016, Mr. Hichilema undertook a tour of milling plants in Lusaka. As usual, he has sought to hide his previous lies by talking about the challenges of load shedding and increased costs of production, as some factors which have raised the price of the commodity.

While Mr. Hichilema seeks to play politics over the linkages between load shedding and costs of production, we seek to remind him that Zambians are not gullible as he believes. Zambians know that the load shedding the country has experienced has been due to erratic rains and reduced water levels to propel our hydro-electric power generation. While as a seemingly self-proclaimed rainmaker Mr. Hichilema blamed previous erratic rainfall seasons on PF and His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, Zambians know that rains are a divine provision of God.

It is common sense that electricity load shedding leads to increased costs of production for respective sectors in the economy, including the milling industry. In responding to these challenges, President Lungu’s Government has made enormous investments in the energy sector which Mr. Hichilema is shy to acknowledge.

The PF Government informed the nation that mealie meal shortages in the country were as a result of smuggling, hoarding and panic buying due to food shortage speculations fueled by among others, Mr. Hichilema’s lies on BBC that the country had no Maize.

We do not know else Mr. Hichilema expected the markets and consumers alike to react when he lied that Zambia had exported all its maize for $200 per tonne and importing it back in the country for $500! Today the UPND leader attributes reports of shortages to either incorrect calculations or other problems such as distribution and illegal exports. We challenge Mr. Hichilema to tell Zambians and BBC whether he still stands by his lies of Zambia exporting all her maize for $200 and importing it back for $500 per tonne!

Lastly we want to caution Mr. Hichilema against issuing inflammatory statements which glorify the criminality that followed after a spate of ritual killings. His last press conference was full of vile when he paid lip service to the ritual killings.

His statement of today still makes recent acts of criminality against foreign nationals as a point of reference for the social unrest he desires to see in Zambia in order for him to win the next election. When Mr. Hichilema issued a statement purported to condemn the acts of criminality against foreigners, he still could not hide that to him everything negative in the country must be warped to benefit his narrow political objectives.

  1. HH said that was the plan so that the PF can make money using the x4 factor method. remember roads cost $250,000 per km but as per PF policy of self enrichment at the expense of the poor masses, they cost K1million.

    • SUNDAY CHANDA MUST HIMSELF BE SUBNORMAL. WHAT SHOULD HH APOLOGIZE FOR? FOR TELLING THE TRUTH? IS IT NOT TRUE THAT YOU PF LOOTERS ARE SELLING AT VERY CHEAP PRICE, BUT IF IT HAS TO COME BACK IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE? SOME PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF NOW KNOW THAT THIS LOADSHEDING IS AS A RESULT OF VERY LOW WATER LEVEL AT KARIBA DAM WHICH PF GOVERNMENT DRAINED BECAUSE THEY WERE REMOVING THE VERY STRONG AND VERY EFFICIENT TURBINES WHICH WERE INSTALLED WHEN THE DAM WAS CONSTRUCTED, REPLACING THEM FOR NON-EFFICIENT CHINESE TURBINES WHICH EVEN REQUIRE LARGE VOLUMES OF WATER TO TRY AND FUNCTION. PF IS A GOVERNMENT FULL OF LIES! IF IT COMES FROM PF, IT IS A LIE!

  4. Sunday Chanda tries so hard to remain relevant in PF’s circles even when his boss Bwalya has spelt out clear guidelines regarding issuing of statements to the media. He is a spineless character who undoubtedly, will find no shame in jumping ships should PF lose in August.

  5. I think some smart Youths should go to the High a Court and ask permission to bring a case against him on the grounds:
    1). Creating a background of dissatisfaction with democratically elected gov’t among citizenry based on flimsy malicious lies. Danger of Anarchy
    2). Threat to national security, his lies leads to riots etc.
    3). Bending Youth minds with psychotic lies.
    4). Just for being HH, ( this one will probably be thrown out)! But that’ll be just Judiciary demonstrating fairness!

  6. Credit must be given where it is due. Zambia’s climate is not different from that of its neighbours but Zambia’s food security is due to Mwanawasa’s FISP (Farmers Input Support Programme). Unfortunately RB and the PF government have not been able to implement his other programme of winter maize. Money as I speak now is lying idle for irrigation projects. The only problem with the late LPM, MHRIP, was that he spent his first five years on prosecuting FTJ.

    • Senior Engineer, I support you on LPM. However, FISP is available in Malawi and Mozambique. But the truth is in the southern region, Zambia received a bit more rains than all the countries in the region. South Africa is worse. It is a pity indeed that politicians are taking advantage of the poor rains and start pointing fingers. Remember, Zambia prayed and we received a bit more rains. Let us wait and see.

    • Jason Nyirenda. Do we know how the FISP is implemented in these countries? May be it is just on paper. As to prayers are you saying the people in the north of Zambia pray more because they receive more rains.

  8. I fully recall inonge wina banning the export of miaze and a week later Edgar overruled her. this is what led to what we are experiencing today.

    I like lungu, he is soft and kind, but I hasten to say he made a big blunder. let us be thankful to God that our people have started harvesting.

    the other challenge is that, even if maize is there now from this harvest, what eexplains why wer are buying maize from k39 to k75-90/bg.

    PF stop cheating and psyching people. the greatest testimony to the suffering of our people is their stomach. and this, they will not forget and be cheated

  10. HH is a liar!

    HH uubeja!

    HH is too desperate to become President to the extent that he will use lies to woo people and the outside world to his side.

    Younger people like him ought to introduce moral politics in our day and age. We need to do away with the deception of the past. Our politics need the honesty of Miyanda, the humanity of Lungu and the decisiveness of the late President Sata.

  11. HH this, HH that everyday. Really? Can’t you tell us what PF is doing or planning to do? HH is entitled to form and hold an opinion. He is free to air his views without fear. As a citizen of Zambia, Edgar is his president too and like any other citizen, he is at will to criticize him too. Get a life Chanda and tell us what PF is doing to maintain the Kwacha gains because it is beginning to slip in the familiar territory again. Tell us the crop forecast and what that means to Zambians. We all know that if we had surplus we would export. Soldiers are guarding maize and M.meal because we don’t have enough in the country. Stop the HH crap.

  16. Hh the Commentator is just doing his duty to find something to comment on. His tour of the milling plants was in line with the duty to find something to make a comment. Never mind that after touring the milling plants, he understands the true situation, that it had nothing to do with what he originally believed that government had exported maize at $200 and then reimported the same maize at $500 dollars. So you wonder why he spoke on issues that he did not know. Shouldnt he have first toured the milling plants before talking to BBC and other people, instead of doing things upside down, speak first and discover that he was wrong after all. Commentator did the same thing on electricity deficit, only to swalliw his iwn wirds without apology. But never mind Zambians know Commentator very well…

  17. But never mind, Zambians now know Commentator very well, that he engages his mouth before his brain. They know what to expect when he opens his mouth.
    And look at the comments by Upnd cadres, when their little god has been caught lying they try to divert attention by point ing to the hair of Sunday Chanda! Sorry its too late Zambians have read and heard. Upnd awe bulwele mwe!

  19. People here are still praising Mwanawasa, he was just lucky in that he ruled at the time when economic factors were in his favour for the first time in history of Zambia. The boom in maize and other crops production had nothing to do with Mwanawasa’s FISP. This was contributed to by more than 200 White farmers led by Peter MacSporran, a former president of Zimbabwe’s Commercial Farmers Union, who crossed into Zambia following the Zimbabwe crisis in February 2000, when pro-government militants, led by War Veterans of the 1970s liberation war, began invading white-owned farms.

    • About 100 white farmers, starting from scratch, with borrowed money produced over 70% of Zambia’s maize crop in year 2003 farming season, compared to 30% of about 150,000 Zambian peasants. However, the appreciation of the Kwacha caused by increased Copper prices & oil prices because of the Chinese increased demand at that time when they stopped using bicycles and resorted to vehicles which raised world demand by almost 80% coupled with 2003 Iraq Invasion, caused misfortune for white farmers who were producing for export & made losses & failed to re-pay their loans. The question is if there was known vision (NDP) of Mwanawasa why did most farmer face sudden effects of Kwacha appreciation at harvest & sale time whilst when they were planting the kwacha was weak?

  21. Lord, your word is settled in heaven and you have given me a mouth and wisdom which no devil can gainsay nor resist. I thank you for the anointing to pull down stronghold and to tread demons under my feet.

    I BIND AND CAST OUT the demonic spirits speaking Deception, Manipulation, Slander, Lies, Smear Campaign, Tribal Hatred, Mediocrity, Insults and Character Assassination against HH. No weapon of lies targeting HH prevails for HH is covered in the blood of Jesus. All demons and their agents receive the fire and brimstone of God. Those who speak malice aforethought against HH, a curse rests on you to a thousand generations.

    I take every curse, negativity, every hex, vexes, incantations, or evil words that have been spoken against HH and nail them to the cross of Jesus Christ…

  22. I take every curse, negativity, every hex, vexes, incantations, or evil words that have been spoken against HH and nail them to the cross of Jesus Christ and declare them null and void. I cancel those words out now in the atmosphere, with the blood of Jesus Christ.

    By the blood of Jesus Christ, I loose truth, integrity and wholeness over this land. I rest on the covenant of God that Zambia is dedicated to the Lord and no devil, living or dead, will prevail either in a cloak of religion, philosophy, voodoo, evil practices or mesmerisation to enslave the people of God. I command Pharoah to loose his satanic grip on the destiny of this nation and let it go!
