UPND President Hakainde Hichilema

UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has said action must be taken to close the gap between the rich and the people in Zambia.

Mr Hichilema said in a statement yesterday that each citizen must be given the opportunity to participate in the economy and improve his or her situation in life as a way of closing up the gap.

He said it was the responsibility of the government to ensure that the benefits of growth were shared.

Mr Hichilema said it was for this reason that UPND’s 10 Point Plan has a big focus on reducing inequality.

He said his government is going to tackle inequality by supporting the vulnerable and disadvantaged that were struggling to find jobs and access services such as education and healthcare.

“We will support youths through training initiatives and working with employers to open up apprenticeships and skills transfer opportunities,”he said.

Mr Hicilema said UPND is going to ensure access to education was equal for the girl and boy child.

He said this would ensure that the government tackles the issues that mean girl child school attendance remains lower such as child marriage, teenage pregnancies and expensive fees.

He said his government is going to lower food prices by increasing the productivity of our farmers.

He said corruption sees a huge percentage of the country’s wealth end up in the pockets of a few but there would be no sacred cows in the UPND government.

He said Zambia’s resources were for Zambians not a few select individuals.

“These are just some of the things we will do. To those who ask why previous governments have failed to eradicate poverty, we say it is because of a lack of political will and corruption,”he said.

  1. One chap at the Kitwe rally told me that HH is very rich and as such will use his money to reduce the cost of living. I wished the best in his dreams

    • Kikikikikikikiki,yaba. Ba HH bena kuwayawayafye. When you hear him delivering his campain message, he sounds like someone reading from a list things the PF has or is already implimenting. The only thing he can do that the PF cannot do is paying all those BP retirees who’ve not been paid there terminal benefits for more than 20 years by Regina Saturnia a company in which he’s a major shareholder.

  2. This Kaponya who can he cheat? This bankum is just a crooked business dealer with a shady past of selling government assets. Why is it that your maids and garden boys still get K400 which is below the minimum wage? Have you closed the gap between your rich self and your workers? Proud elitist F0OL.
    Kaponya (HH), you can keep promising Utopia. We are counting your fake promises. This Kaponya (HH) is just a puke vomit no wonder Mumbi Phiri feels like vomit when she hears his Satamic name

  5. “We will support youths through training initiatives and working with employers to open up apprenticeships and skills transfer opportunities,”he said.
    Those are the empty words of a clown with no civil service experience, or public service, military or civil society organisation exposure. This empty economist has no viable manifesto. The bankum doesn’t know that all these ideas are already in practice under the current government. Even in MMD they were there. Don’t trust someone who talks of corruption when he’s built an empire from corruptly acquired commission pay outs during the ZPA days

    • Mr Kudos, such hatred of another God’s creation is very unfortunate. You should know that you do not only hate HH but you hate the very one who created him also – God. Remember the Bible says, God created us in his own image? Mr Kudos, I personally have been an ardent follower of your postings and I tell you, your ending will be disastrous for hating another human being as you do to HH, unless you are an animist and it will not take long for you to take your punishment from God. I rest my case

  6. People who say HH stole from the sale of mines. Why don’t you go and report him to police or the power that be report. Do you think he is immune from prosecution. It just shows how dull some Zambian can be and easily manipulated. All the people who were involved in corruption in this country were taken to court but why exclude HH. Ba shonongo

    Kaponya (HH) has said it himself, he doesn’t mince his words. In his small rotten brain, the lack of political will and lack of corruption make leaders fail to eradicate poverty. Indeed it’s a lack of political will and corruption.

  8. @Mr. kudos, Ala uletekanya swenke, your so many postings and unusual comments every time HH says something is abundant proof of the hatred that rests at the helm of your heart against the man. But that does not mean HH is failure going by your unusual comments. The negative comments you pass speak volumes about what kind of a poorly minded person you are up there and you need to reform no wonder you are just a skull without brains. Probably, I would not be wrong to assume that you are just a kaponya, a drunkard and a visionless chap like your kachasuman at state house. This country cannot move forward with empty tins like you whose thoughts and hidden agendas belong to the dustbin.

      President Edgar Lungu has never insulted (HH) as a FreeMansion. But your Kaponya leader has labelled our Republican President a ‘Kachasu man from the tavern’, calling ordinary citizens ‘Morrons’ and FO0LS.
      As a citizen of this great nation Zambia I will personally see to it that your Kaponya (HH) never walks on a red carpet at State House. You have plenty of time to join the Sonta po winning team or you can continue believing your Satamic UPND bible at Zambian Witch Doctor

These Sata people have departed from their father’s vision for this country. How can Mulenga Sata forget that people were celebrating in Nega Nega as soon as news broke about the death of the late president? They thought Kaponya’s turn had come

You fail to pay your own workers sufficiently together with Fat Albert who even beats his workers yet you want to pretend you will share their pain. The ‘humbleness’ people like in EL is the simple life he leads and has no affinity for money. If GBM cared why hasnt he reduced the price of his Mealie Meal ? Selfish Capitalists !

  15. Latest rumors indicate that Kaponya (HH) and his mafia Cartel of Miles, GBM, Scott Mmembe Inc have shares in Manda Hill shopping mall. They recently hiked the rentals to cause hunger and anger in the workers at the mall. They were trying to show that the economy is bad and Lungu is failing the people, that investors at Manda Hill are pulling out. This is the Armaggedon, mayhem and havoc these massons talked about recently.

      Well spoken. That’s exactly how to do it. Its amazing how seemingly intelligent bloggers on this site choose to pretend and sound so dull, and they call it politics.
      Zambia has MORE natural resources than any single European Country you can name. And yet these pretenders prefer handouts from here in Europe, which handouts are digging and yoking our mother Zambia deeper into debt for the next generation. Anyone who is oblivious to long-term consequences of borrowing without a tangible plan to stimulate our economy is not fit to be a leader.

      We can eliminate such cold hearted mercenaries by voting wisely on August 11. If you read the real behind scenes politics very well, you will realise that government under President Lungu has been tightening the loose ends where there was rampant corruption, pilfering and embezzlement by Cartel crooks like (HH), GBM, Scott Mmembe, Wynter and Miles. Lungu won without their support, only with the support of the Zambian people. He could afford discarding them unlike the loyalty President Sata had to maintain. Now the Cartel crooks have all jumped to UPND and Kaponya (HH) is too occupied with getting to State House because this is his last attempt. They will play all sorts of tricks to try to destabilize the economy but we will prevail.

  20. Mr incoming president, lately your litany of promises are increasingly sounding hollow as you inch close to plot one; more like debating club statements from some high school. Please try hard to substantiate your claims. Do it like Kaunda who promised to create jobs … in Mansa by creating Mansa batteries and Kawambwa Banana Scheme; in Chipata through the bicycle factory; in Livingstone via the ITT and Motor Assembling Plant; in Kasama through Kateshi Coffee, etc. Those were believable promises, kind of assurances. Emulate KK. At this rate your promises are another version of 90-days PF rant and lack conviction. But to be fair to PF they have created an unassailable legacy of being infrastructure giants and transformed Zambia in that regard.

  21. I thought the company HH was a shareholder or worked for did evaluations during privatisation. V. Chitalu was in charge of privatisation and the Zambian government sold the government owned companies. Then the government and citizenry used the money. So HH is in the equation but was just a constant. And now that he is vying for the highest office of the land he must explain how he used his salary or dividends, how his cows were giving birth to multiply, how he sold the increased herd and built shoping malls, invested in this and that. Then it more difficult to be a president with that background than those who sat in those cabinet meetings and made those decisions.

    For every single meaningfully job created (not the casual jobs under PF and their overpriced projects where they stole most of the money) that gap between rich and poor is reduced.

    Only those with vested intrests in this corrupt PF GRZ will tell zambians that you will not be lifted out of poverty. The parasites they are wanting to continue sucking the wealth of our people

  23. The why and the what we know but with you Mr. HH we just never get the “how”. Personally, I do not think there is a problem with the gap between rich and poor, rich people are rich because they work hard or because of some family dynasty etc, the aim should be that we improve the definition of poor and ensure that “poor” people have the relevant basics and be able to send their children to schools.

    • The “How” is all in sound solid managment with out the scourge of corruption.

      Just as an indicator of corruption ravaging Zambia through PF, most scholarships meant for poor deserving zambians end up with the PF children and their relatives like in the case of given lubinda and his daughter in Russia. Or the case of kambwili telling PF cadars in parastatals to employ relatives only.

      The missmangment is clear for all to see, Lungu and PF only open shopping malls.

    • Firstly, corruption cannot be seen, it must be proven in the courts of law. I do not work with hypothetical situations. I really think HH needs to start mentioning the “how”. You mention prudence and transparency, that is not enough to uplift the well-being of Zambians. How can Zambia grow its GDP without the creation of infrastructure? What is wrong in mall-construction? And let us not be misled, the Government has not built any malls, these malls are built by private entities and pension funds (of course I acknowledge that NAPSA bends to govt’s demands). Money used for scholarships is negligible, the hidden truth is that can only sustain itself when the public service is cut by 30%.

      To you the issue of scholarship corruption might seem negligible, but to poor bright deserving Zambian students aspiring to lead our nation, this is devastating to see rich PF children getting the scholarships, this creates a vicious cycle.
      On corruption As the situation stands now, the whistle blowers who see corruption are told to provide evidence by this PF ACC. You can see the money is unaccounted for but we are being told to provide evidence. The custodians of our wealth and the ACC are the ones with the evidence but fold their arms.
      One one doubts development needs infrastructure, since we spend all that money on infrastructure why then are we going back begging to the IMF??.

What good will Kaseba bring when you yourselves questioned why the ‘Office of the First Lady’ was allocated tax payers money for Kaseba to fly around. You questioned GBMs firing of ZAF officers for refusing to award him tenders.

Why can’t he mention how his tax plans will look like, how many more skills centers he can build, how much debt he plans to get rid of. Food prices influenced by many other factors. Current food prices are high because of exchange rate fueled inflation which is unlikely to improve until 2018 when China’s copper stockpiles have depleted. This is a fact. Politicians will make even good things look bad, infrastructure is necessary to create a base for increased GDP. Other countries that have embarked on such projects have suffered more than Zambia is.

    • @Spaka. No that is not true my man. I agree that he is a good business man but it is not a lie that he got rich from privatization under Chiluba. HH was not well on his way to getting rich because he was an advisory consultant at Grant Thornton. Auditors do not just get rich, ask anyone who is. Most of HH’s money has emanated from his affiliation with Anglo American Corp. which sold assets to Sanlam which offered HH and some friends who executed the deals some shareholding. I do not say that his role in privatization was unlawful, it was just unpatriotic as these companies were sold for nearly nil values.

Did Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu go to this university or indeed the rest of the former Zambian Presidents, alive or dead? Secondly, this sontapo po PF slogan, I believe there is always one President in a country at one given time, so how does the PF expect HH and indeed the whole opposition to sontapo when they are not the government who control financial bourse? I think the slogan is indecent and vision less.

If you read the story of rich people in SADC like Mostepe or Ramaphosa their stories start from somewhere. These guys we know it was through BEE. Even Katumbi’s story (shade as it maybe) is more believable than HH story. Ok so he sold cattle and ended up buying shares in Zambeef, Sun International, Manda Hill and many others? In a space of 10 years? HH like the Russian Oligarchs took advantage of privatization and cut deals. As someone who is in business, I find it difficult to believe his story.

    • @Kabwata Dallas,
      Unlike most riffraff who just make accusations about HH’s rise to prominence, you sound like a rational guy. So, here are 3 irrefutable points in support of HH.
      1.) Late President Sata, when he was still a vindictive King Cobra, made it his mission to retrieve all assets dubiously acquired by individuals and organisations during MMD’s Govt. In particular, he targeted to get to the bottom of HH’s wealth. You know the outcome of that effort. Underestimate vindictive Sata at your own peril. If however you have any shred of evidence whatsoever that he did break the law in any shape or form, please please please report him to PF Police who would relish such an opportunity.
      2.) I am sure you know HH was an international consultant earning international rates long before…

    • Kabwata dallas,

      HH has nothing to hide, infact all those who were intent on smearing him have being trying to dig up skeletons for the past 20 yrs. That has included 3 presidents, sata, RB and now lungu with all state marchinary to try to find wrong but all they come up with is privatisation knowing full well he only carried out part of a work assignment and the decisions were left to FJT and his cabinet including sata.

      rates long before the privatisation.
      3.) As I am sure you know, unlike owning fixed buildings with fixed earnings, Cattle, if well managed, grows exponentially. When you are given a cow at birth to help supplement with your milk (and baby lotion needs), as is the common practice with Cattle keeping people, by the time you reach adulthood you will have a very decent herd of cattle. Most people do not understand the magic of exponential growth. When Bill gates became the richest man in the World, he tried to explain the power of exponential growth in his book “THE ROAD AHEAD” i.e. on a chessboard, if you placed one grain of rice on the first square, then double that on the next square etc.., i.e. 1, 2, 4, 16, 256, 65536, etc.. how many grains of rice will you have by…

      Exponential growth, if well managed, is like a trick. This is what our young entrepreneurs should be focusing on and debating on.

  35. May I ask a question to those men and women who say: HH has no experience to lead this country, question is: Which university in the world CV teaches one to be a President? Did Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu go to this university or indeed the rest of the former Zambian Presidents, alive or dead? Secondly, this sontapo PF slogan, I believe there is always one President in a country at one given time, so how does the PF expect HH and indeed the whole opposition to sontapo when they are not the government who control financial bourse? I think the slogan is indecent and vision less.

    • HH has been campaigning on the premise of being a better economical manager and successful businessman unless you have not heard that…The essence of SONTA is based on the fact that you do not need to be President to show the contributions to the economy e.g. Dangote a foreigner has put up a cement plat that has contributed to the reduction of cement prices, whereas the so called businessmen are saying they can only fix things once in power…Great Bag of Maize (GBM) even owns a milling company and yet mealie meal prices are much higher than Cement….and he has 10000 tons of maize he wants to export at the expense of Zambians…SONTALICIOUS chabe!

  37. Guys,
    Don’t be fooled! THE GAP CAN NEVER BE CLOSED.
    Historically, Zambia grew up on the disparity between rich and poor. It is because of this, derogatory names such as:
    House boy
    Garden boy, and
    Chola boy
    Proliferate.
    My mother Shanti left my father Kishore in Mazabuka in 1979 and ran away to Choma with our garden Boy Simulonda.
    Such profound differences between rich and poor resonate with me decades later.
    Simulonda extracted revenge from dad by stealing his wife for being underpaid.
    That is the history of Zambia.

  40. Come on HH tell us something new. I sat for a moment thinking you have nailed it already after reading the bare statements above. Behold three quarters of what you’re saying is already being implemented. Come on HH think! come on man! Tell us something new. That is not the froward you preach to Zambians now, is it? That is stagnation we are already there. Bring new ideas. You know what? You HH are uncoachable. What’s the point of changing Government if you sounding like them?

    1. Did you noticep how quiet HH was during the week of AfDB meetings in Lusaka of economists and financiers? He did not want to open his mouth and expose his incompetence in economic and financial matters to fellow economists and financiers. He heard for himself how Africa including Zambia is facing economic challenges largely caused by external workd economic factors and climate change. As soon as the experts left Zambia he is at it again sharing his limited knowledge and pretending to be an expert among ignorant Zambians.

  42. What HH is not telling us about his ten point plan
    2. Where he will get the money from to finance his plan since according to him, the country has borrowed too much and has no capacity to borrow more. Hasnt he told us that the debt is unsustainable for the country? So is he going to print more kwacha?
    2. He is not telling us the fact that in order to implement his plans he will need to use the roads, schools hospitals etc built by PF. He will find these ready and will not havevto borrow money to build roads again for a long time to come. His plans can not be done without the basic infrastructure.
    3. Even campaigning he is using the same nice roads, when his members fall sick they go to the hospitals clinics built by PF.
    Kuwayawayafye ba HH, just sonta pali ba PF iwe!

    • Why is every thing about borrowing with PF ? Zambia is a rich country and with proper management, does not need to borrow for everything.
      And at what cost to the nation have those nice roads cost us?? Why is Zambia running back to the imf ??

  46. @ Terrible and Mr Kudos; Tell me where your clueless Lungu will get the money from to fix the Economy he broke down?And also the money to pay the country back which they ve been stealing in one year.Even Here is the difference:with HH;he ll only ve to look for money to fix the econmomy(besides he is respected & trusted wolrdwide),so businesses ll flock to Zambia when he takes over.While your Lungu,will first ve to look for money to repay the Eurobonds and more borrowed money from donors.And mind you,we as Zambians dont owe these donors,they must take their money from the person they gave it to(Lungu and Chikwanda).And finally,u are also admitting that you PF Kaponyas ve destroyed our country-Ba swine.

  47. But HH is the one helped Chiluba Government to destroy Job in Zambia by advising GRZ wrongly in selling ZCCM and other GRZ Companies in the early 1990’s.

    The promising is one and implementing is another. How is going to do what he is promising no one knows…………….vyakulola vye.at our institution every Tonga is UPND and alot of other tribes are in UPND but no Tonga is found in Other Parties other than UPND why?

  48. That is why I will never vote for HH. How can UPND deny that you need infrastructure to develop? Why is he lying to clueless Zambians that they will pay debts for yes to come? How will HH deliever what he is promising with broken roads. I would have voted for him at least if he had said PF has done its best but said we can do more. Its nonsense to say roads, bridges, airports, hospitals, clinics are not needed. If you know anything about economics, nothing wrong borrowing for infrastructure. What is wrong is borrowing for consumption.

    • Errrr….When did HH say roads, bridges etc etc are not needed. ???

      From what we understand, Upnd has articulated that while targeted crucial infrastructure is essential, this must be balanced out with the immediate health of the economy. What is the immediate economic benefit to a to a sick economy of Tarmac roads in the Combony ?? So that jobless youth don’t get their feet dirty ??.

      At least 1 billion dollars should have been spen on job creation, but it seems the construction contracts were too sweet.

    now that 320 is only minus nurses, what of teachers,what of police,army,airforce recruits,how about all this massive infrastructure country wide,from roads to buildings,are you telling me these things are building themselves? are you telling me the remaining 320 plus plus plus plus cannot vanish in those sectors,if you dont have papers,join the ones fixing roads or ndaka boy under the job title ndakalization, this is patriotic front
