HH addressing the UPND Rally at Freedom Park in Kitwe

Hundreds of Copperbelt residents thronged Kitwe’s freedom park were the United Party for National Development -UPND Officially launched campaigns ahead of the August 11 general elections.

The mammoth grand rally attracted scores of cadres and residents from various towns on the Copperbelt.

The rally was punctuated by solidarity songs and other entertainment provided by Musician Pilato and many others.

Anderson Mazoka’s widow Mutinta was presented with a bouquet of flowers and statue while Mulenga Sata and His cousin Miles Sampa presented the Sata family during the tribute.

Addressing the multitudes at the rally UPND president Hakainde Hichilema alleged that the PF has failed to manage the Country’s economy.

Mr Hichilema urged Copperbelt residents to give him a vote because he has an answer to the Country’s economic problems.

Earlier at the same rally former Republican Vice Presidents Lupando Mwape and Guy Scott appealed to the residents to give UPND a chance.

Mr Hichilema was accompanied by senior UPND officials among them Garry Kombo, Obvious Mwaliteta and Mutale Nalumango.

Elsewhere campaigns have heated up with the United National Independence Party UNIP saying that they have already started their national wide campaigns.

UNIP Secretary General Raphael Banda told ZNBC news that his party has so far received overwhelming response even from other political parties.

And Forum for Democracy and Development -FDD says a number of rallies have been lined up in the country.

FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza says his party is expected to officially launch its campaigns on the 30th of this month.

    • The last few pictures are different from the first ones, were they taken before all the people arrived, did you do the same for the PF. By your reporting when you say “hundreds of Copper belt residents” are you saying they were less than a thousand.One of the last pictures number 10 has GBM. Did he manage to attend the rally because other news indicated that he was being questioned by police at one of the police stations. HH also seems to be wearing different clothes in picture 2 and 7, did he change his clothes during the rally. Dr Scott also has different clothes in picture 9 when compared to other media who reported the same event today.

      “The mammoth grand rally attracted scores of cadres and residents from various towns on the Copperbelt.”
      True these pictures are choking PF to the core. PF had their mammoth rally in Lusaka also where they ferried cadres from countryside using state resources. But this UPND rally was right in PF’s bedroom & UPND does not have the financial muscle to ferry people from countrywide.
      Right now Kambwili is on ZNBC1 condemning GBM for promising to end load shedding in two years. This is more realistic than the failed PF 90 days promises of fixing the constitution & Economy.

      This election will be too tight & may be decided in round 1 especially with the unexpected choice of Inonge instead of Nawakwi or Luo as Running mate. More defections from PF are on the way.

DO YOU EXPECT LUNGU TO SPEAK FLUENT LUNDA IN MWINILUNGA? DON’T TAKE US FOR FOOLS. WE WANT A LEADER WHO WILL SAVE THE COUNTRY FROM THIS INEPT, CORRUPT AND FAILED LEADERSHIP OF LUNGU.

    • Ignore the middle pictures. Just concetrate on pictures 1-5 & the last two.
      The other pictures are from Chongwe & Kafue rallies put their there just to play down the reality on the ground. HH only wore red attire through out the rally & when did he change his shirt?
      They never expected UPND to pull such a huge crowd in their own backyard with limited resources compared to PF that has government resources. PF ferried cadres from countryside compared to UPND that only had cadres from Copperbelt & most of them came on their own.

      But what will be the motive behind posting those pictures? Since when is reporting the truth not enough.

  8. I have worked with the late FTJ and I know victory when I see it…i was on the phone with Kavindele way back in December 2001 when Mazoka was leading Mwanawasa with an early vote count….Mazoka was a real Politician and very noble man(MHSRIP)….but this HH is something else

    It’s good to see Kavindele..RB…Mutati…hustling for PF numbers numbers numbers

  9. I still dont get deceived by campaign crowds …….. albeit that is why in other countries Polls are done of actual voters and their preferred candidates. What is the percentage of voters that were in that stadium and at Freedom Park. Which constituencies are they coming from?? Statistically you may be shocked that HH actually had more voters attending his rally than ECL. Numbers don’t mean much at rallies remember RB rallies??? unless you have short memory. Lets not get excited by these highly staged Rallies both Freedom Park and Disaster stadium are not telling the full story here. PERIOD!! No matter what U think

    • A lot of excitement in the ruling party camp based on pictures coming from the stadium and good for them. A deeper look into the day’s events both in Lusaka and Kitwe would make those who can critically analyse issues, worry for the PF.
      The President and his party were on the copperbelt and at the same Freedom park less than 2 weeks ago and their crowd then to what the UPND had today should raise alarm bells.

  10. You need to understand one thing it is not HH you will teach a lesson but yourselves and your families if you bring back PF for another five years look at the state of the economy people are suffering in Zambia PF has no answers think twice. HH and GBM will nit suffer they have worked hard In life all they do is feel for the poor.

  11. Shameless,

    I attended the Heroes PF rally and got regular briefings from family and friends who attended and were monitoring the UPND rally in Kitwe. You are at liberty to believe what you want, but the conclusion I have based on these two rallies is that HH is in serious terminal trouble and stands absolutely no chance of winning the August 216 elections. Believe what you want. I rest my case.

  12. To all PF buffoons like like katondo boys and the dry skull, My president has delivered a 100% workable 10 point plan. Just wait and see, people are hungry and angry. They want to hear a plan that will change their lively wood not sticking to old finished gogos. Where are the young women?

      Be a little bit civil my dear friend…we don’t have anything against HH…HH is one of us…he is family…he is Zambian and I believe you are Zambian too…so let’s show some respect because you have no idea who Katondo boys is…this is Politics and don’t take things personal….just work hard wherever you are in the diaspora and build a very beautiful house for you and your lovely family back in Zambia and God bless you.

    • Theres no reason in your voice when you start by insulting your fellow citizens your family for that matter. Insulting is a sign of failing to reason sir or madam. Like it has been said HH has all the right to be president of Zambia just like Edgar Lungu. All he needs is to convince more voters. And his supporters should help him to do so but if you his supporters are insulting those who are challenging you then I don’t how you will help bring more numbers on the side of HH.

  15. So LT you have just confirmed that you are PF. Your propaganda has failed you. You mix pictures from UPND chongwe rally held last week and the mamoth rally held at freedom park today to confusion your gullible PF carders.It wont help you win votes by demeaning attendance at UPND rally. The truth of the matter is that UPND rally in Kitwe today had a record crowd than any other ever held before not even by SATA’s rallies at his peak. Continue deceiving yourself and remember that Kitwe a very strong PF stronghold based on 2011 elections. Clearly your reporting is very un professional and biased.

    • Isn’t Lusaka bigger than Kitwe by population?

      Aren’t Kitwe & Luaska your strongholds?

      Did the majority of attendees come on their own or were they ferried from outside the provinces?

      Analyze properly & see who has gained more in terms of attendance!

    • You are the fo’olish tribalist who sees everything tribal about HH. Clearly you are scared of HH for un known reasons.Just chill as he is coming in as your republican President. We dont eat tribalism.What we want is a strong and visionary person to lead this country to development. Why should it be an issue for some one whose mother tongue is another to ask for interpretation. You expect HH to speak fluent Bemba as if it is a qualification to be president, that is why you choose fake characters to lead this country because your standard is totally useless. Id.iotic tribalist, move on swine iwe.

  28. Heavenly Father, I ask You to execute divine judgment against satanic/demonic activities and help us war in the spirit of Elijah and Jehu according to 1 Kings 18:1-46, 9-10:2. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I bind all of satan’s evil, wicked, demons, lying, manipulation, ConArtistry, dupery, violence, intimidation and strongmen along with all their works, roots, fruits, and tentacles. Father and my Lord Jesus Christ, I ask You to place HH’s name and campaign on the hearts of all prayer warriors, intercessors, and prophetic watchmen to pray for him. I ask You to let them not cease or come down from their watchtowers until their assignments have been completed. Great Father of glory, pure Father of light, I ask You to destroy all ill spoken words, all ill wishes, all…

Lord Jesus, I ask that You destroy the curses associated with these utterances and decree and declare that: they shall not stand; they shall not come to pass; they shall not take root; and their violent verbal dealings are returned to them double-fold according to Isaiah 54:17. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

  35. Reading above comments, I want to believe that all the bad language commenters know that there is a God in Heaven watching and listening. The fact is that if God has been pleased with the manner the PF led God’s people since they took over power in 2011, especially after Sata death, then God will give PF & Edgar Lungu another time to continue. But if God feels there is no need for PF to continue because of various issues disadvantaging the other Zambian people, no matter what you say, no matter how you insult and hate other parties, God will accord another President for Zambia. God does not work the way those with hate speech work, or think. He is Omnipotent God we serve, the Creator of all human beings whom He Himself created. Rallies have been held and are being displayed to impress…
