UPND President Hakainde Hichilema with his Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba during the Consecration of Rev. Fr Justin Mulenga as Bishop at St Joseph’s Cathedral in Mpika

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says it is rude for anyone to question his decision to pick his vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba as his running mate.

Mr. Hichilema says as party president it is his right to chose who should be his running mate.

In an interview with QFM by telephone from Northern Province where he is campaigning, Mr. Hichilema it is unfair for people to continue questioning his choice for running mate when no one is talking about other political parties.

He has wondered why people are not questioning President Edgar Lungu’s choice for running mate vice president Inonge Wina.

Mr. Hichilema has reiterated that party vice president for political affairs Canisius Banda who some people expected to be his running mate still has value to the UPND.

He however, stated that he has not spoken to Dr. Banda over his decision not to be part of UPND campaign team that currently on the campaign trail in Eastern province.

Meanwhile, UPND Vice President for Politics Dr. Canisius Banda refuted claims suggesting that he withdrew from the party’s Eastern Province campaign tour led by former vice president Guy Scott and former Chongwe Member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo because he is bitter for being overlooked as presidential running mate.

Dr. Banda told QFM via telephone that such claims were cheap propaganda which should not be taken seriously.

Dr. Banda said that he harbors no ill feeling after UPND President Hakainde Hichilema picked his Vice President for Administration Geoffrey Mwamba as his running mate.

Dr. Banda said that his absence from Eastern province campaign team has nothing to do with him being overlooked as a presidential running mate, but that something personal came up and he decided to remain and attend to those matters.

  1. HH the fact that people are questioning you, means that there could be something terribly wrong with your decision making and that you lack the wisdom of listening…

    • Whichever way, HH made a self-inflicting pain.
      He has dribbled himself from continuing with his political career.
      HH’s political career has been deeply challenged, because after losing in August 2016 he will be forced to retire from active politics by the ‘guys’ or is he going to accept to be a mere UPND member, or at least a member of the NEC?
      Let us assume that in the unlikely even he won the election (forgive me for assuming the impossible), GBM would be a thorn in HH’s flesh – take it or leave it. GBM would have a constitutional mandate just like HH, and HH will have no powers to fire him. Those who know GBM will tell you, that HH’s would not be easy.

    • You may not like what I have said but that matters little the point is that, whichever way, HH’s career has taken a self-inflicted challenge because of greed – the hunger and thirsty for State House.

    • HH made a wise choice that’s why people are talking about HH and not ECL or FDD. Ya, they are scared. Politics is about numbers and strategies and this one is working wonders on the ground where it matters. This time it’s South (HH)and North (GBM)Vs East (ECL) and West (IW). Let’s wait and see. This is the strategy bane.

    • @zakeyo,the fact that pipo are questioning hh s choice means that pf is afraid of the northern region vote,because if GBM was not a threat pf would have been celebrating ,even in soccer if the coach fields a weak player and the opponents start to complain then its the opponents needs their heads examined or the opponents know that even if he is a weak player he is a goal getter.

    • HH, YOU ARE IN FACT THE ONE WHO’S RUDE TO SAY, “It is rude for people to question my running mate choice”. SO, IN YOUR CROOKED HEAD YOU JUST WANT THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO TAKE ANY RUBBISH FROM YOU. PEOPLE ARE NOT ONLY QUESTIONING YOUR RUNNING-MATE. THEY ARE QUESTION CANDIDATES EVEN FROM THE RULING, PF. THIS IS BECAUSE, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO QUESTION PEOPLE WHO ARE POTENTIALLY, THEIR REPRESENTATIVES WHETHER IT BE PRESIDENTIAL, PARLIAMENTARY OR COUNCILLOR LEVEL. OF COURSE YOUR RUNNING-MATE IS AS QUESTIONABLE AS YOURSELF. LONG BEFORE, HE JOINED YOUR PARTY HE USED TO BE VIEWED AS A PARIAH FROM YOUR CAMP. SO, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK OTHER PEOPLE CAN NOT QUESTION THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR RUNNING-MATE?

    • Unfortunately, Guy Scott is using the young men Miles Sampa and Mulenga Sata to advance his agenda of revenging on Lungu. The more I think about it the more I am convinced that he is behind their defection! He is trying by all means to remain relevant to the political scene!

    • On the contrary, the questioning is a vote of confidence that he is more likely becoming the next president. So reality check on the decision.

    • HH had his good reasons to pick GBM. However, whatever the reasons, GBM lacks the mental stability to be at plot # 2 going by his violent past. In short, he is temperamentally and morally unfit for that position. Mark my words, if UPND wins, HH himself could be GBM’s victim.

    • HH, I NOW KNOW THAT YOU A DULL PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO THE ISSUE OF LEADERSHIP. HOW DO COME UP WITH THIS USELESS STATEMENT. MY DEAR WE ARE TALKING ABOUT GOOD LEADERSHIP OF A COUNTRY, NOT YOU BUSINESSES WITH YOUR RUNNING MATE. HONESTLY SPEAKING I TERRIBLE TO THINK THAT GBM BEING PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. THE MAN IS A CHIEF OF THUGS, THE MAN FULL OF INSULTS, THE MAN BEATS WOMEN, THE MAN HAS NO RESPECT FOR OTHERS, THE MAN IS UNEDUCATED, THE MAN AS NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT EXCEPT INSULTS. COME HH BE SERIOUS FOR ONCE AND STOP QUESTIONING US AS ZAMBIANS BUT YOUR CHOICE OF GBM IS USELESS. HOW CAN YOU MARKET TO THE VOTE? PRESIDENT ECL AS A RUNNING MATE WHO IS WELL BEHAVED, HUMBLE, AND WELL CULTURED.

    • People have a right to question the selection of public servants, especially someone who will be a heartbeat away from the presidency. Zambians have a right to make sure the right people are put in public offices. Thus, we have a right to raise concerns if there are any. And it’s up to you to satisfy us that your selection is what’s best for Zambia. Remember, he will not just be “your” vice president, but “every” Zambian’s vice president. So we have a stake in it, and thus we should have a say. Labeling people’s questioning of your choice for a “public servant” as “rude,” smacks of dictatorship. Last time I checked, we’re have democracy in Zambia and thus we have a say in what happens to our beloved country. That’s how democracy works.

    • HH is just okay
      He is asking a question, ‘Why are people talking about my choice of running mate and not talking about the choices of other party presidents?”
      It appears HH would like to know – he does not know why. This is strange, though, because people are expecting him to use the hints they are giving him to figure out why.
      But anyway, I will try and help him understand why by just comparing Lungu’s running mate who he pointed out, for comparison.
      1. GBM insults – Inonge Wina does not
      2. GBM fights and assaults people – Inonge Wina does not
      3. GBM is involved in GBV – Inonge Wina is not
      4. GBM once was taken to police by spouse for assault – Inonge Wina never did that for all the time the husband was alive.
      5. GBM has had many police cases – Inonge Wina has not
      6. GBM’s…

    • 6. GBM’s education is in serious doubt – Inonge Wina’s is not
      So, HH, I expected you to easily see this based on my perception that your caliber had capacity to do so.

    • @3 Pretty,because they expected UPND the alternative government to make better choices than PF. The parties you are mentioning are far smaller than UPND and thus less interesting to follow their decisions and choices. Please understand that some voters have developed doubts about UPDN following the prominence given to GBM and others running away from PF after they failed to secured the Presidency they wished for. There is even more doubt when GBM is made VP!!

    • Knowing HH, i dont think GBM will be a loose cannon if he becomes our next VP. Why do we have loose cannons like Mumbi, Chama, Kambwili ? Its because Lungu tolerates it, they are like minded. He’s special advisor is an offender.

    • @UPND Cadre, this time around the VP will be protected by the constitution and can not be changed by the Presido. Thats the more reason why we need a VP who is Presido in waiting, because anything can happen between now and 2021

  3. HH, you will continue to be questioned because the value added to your management skills by GBM is non existent. The man is corrupt, abusive and extremely obnoxious. Just the other day, he called Dora chiwelewele, that is not language befitting a VP.

  4. I am surprised that the so-called intelligent HH doesn’t know why Zambians are not questioning ECL running mate choice but are question HH’s running mate choice!! HH, do you have wise advisors. GBM will make you lose elections this year by a wide margin.

  5. HH and any blind UPND member should as himself why old UPND members and his own Vice Dr Canicius Banda are not on the campaign trail with him. HH campaign trail is missing the Mweetwas, Nkombo, Muntangas and other related UPND Bigwigs. Their silence in this matter is too loud ! Like it or not, HH has just sold UPND to the Bemba Cartel and next as we have been reliably informed, the much awaited UPND Convention is on the cards championed by Guy Scott and the other Cartel members. Watch this space

    • Iwee stop ukubwabwata-these guys you have mentioned are busy campaigning in their respctive constuencs since there are standing as MPs.
      GBM brings votes that is a fact unlike ba mama..
      HH dont mind them, people will always talk-had you not picked GBM, tey would have even talked the more. PF are are just afraid of the brave man. GBM will bring more votes for for HH than any other individual he would have picked-even Kaseba. What would be the essence of picking the so call smart running mate then flopping the elections? HH do not listen to disctractors , this is the best decision you have made….and you will be going to state house smiling largely because of this decision!!

IN FACT UPND HAS ALREADY PERISHED. PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE BEEN DOUBTING BEFORE GBM WAS APPOINTED AS RUNNING-MATE. BUT, AFTER ALL PEOPLE HAVE CONCLUDED THAT HH DOESN’T THINK TO IGNORE ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED HIM THROUGH AND THROUGH. HE HAS SIMPLY INSULTED THEM AND THE WHOLE TONGA LAND THAT THEY ARE ALL !DIOTS. MIND YOU BEMBA PEOPLE DON’T VOTE ON TRIBAL LINES. SO, THERE’S NO BREAD GBM IS GOING TO BRING TO THE UPND TABLE FROM THE BEMBA LAND. BEMBA’S VOTE ON INTELLIGENCE, HUMBLENESS, WISDOM PERFORMANCE AND BACKED PROMISES OF A CANDIDATE.

    • Even in 2015 you and your fellow failures kept mumbling and talking same rhetoric and bigotry but ECL triumphed. HH lost and will happen 2016.
      HH blind followers think 2015 numbers were a popularity test for him. You forget simple facts that voter turnout was 33% average but 95% in Southern province. That is why 2016 voter register shows Sountern province having 17% of voters beating Northern, Luapula and Eastern so that hh wins on voter turnout.
      Bringing into HH team, haters of ECL like Kilometer, Sikoti, maroads masebo gbm will not make hh win 2016 election. Be prepared for an excruciating defeat. Zambians have already decided. KATEKA is already known, UMUNTU (human( NOT ANIMAL (HH), is already known, NI LUNGU.

    • UKUNWO BWALWA MWANA KUSANKANA NA BANTU AT GRASS ROOTS LEVEL, IN CASE YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT. GOOD NEWSPAPER ARTICLES ARE WRITTEN BY JOURNALISTS WHO PATRONISE PUBS. IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES SUCH AS THE UK OR AMERICA THOSE WHO SOCIALISE (MEANING GOING TO DRINK WITH COLLEAGUES, OR WINE AND DINE) ALWAYS GET PROMOTED. AT WORK BEING A GOOD ENGINEER WITHOUT SOFT SKILLS NOWADAYS ISN’T JUST GOOD ENOUGH. ONE HAS TO HAVE ADDITIONAL SOFT SKILLS IN ORDER TO ORGANISE THE PROJECT TEAMS AND CONVINCINGLY TALK TO POTENTIAL AND EXISTING CUSTOMERS. THOSE WHO DRINK ARE VERY GOOD AT THAT. SO, WHAT YOU ARE SAYING (AND IT IS EVIDENT) IS THAT ECL IS A PUBLIC RELATIONS MAN AND THAT’S WHY HE FIRST-ATTEMPT WON PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, WHILE HH WHO LACKS THE ABOVE IS STILL TRYING IN VAIN.

    • @Lutuku, you are very right GBM has never stolen from anyone…But he can abuse power once its given to him. Look at what happened at Ministry of Defence. In the new constitution it will be very difficult to change the VP, not even the Presido has such powers…We need to look at the bigger picture, a power hungry leader is capable of doing anything

  8. BREAKING NEWS : GBM has hinted at eyeing the UPND Presidency via a Convention should HH lose this years election. After promising HH to keep his hands off the UPND Presidency, GBM has turned around and put the Cartel’s ultimate mission into motion by starting calls for a Convention as opposed to the ‘Chunda” Authority. This move has surprisingly got the support of die-hard UPND bigwigs who have also decided not to support GBMs candidacy at the Convention the latter will demand for and largely sponsor. HH has been trying to call for Guy Scott’s intervention in this ‘treacherous move’ by the Cartel but as expected, Guy Scott has suddenly become elusive. Garry Nkombo and company seem to embrace this Coup de Etat by GBM as their warnings to HH s fell on deaf ears. Viva Bemba Power !

  9. Rude!! A politician telling those who question him as rude? Rude is never in a politician’s vocabulary because this profession is about rudeness. You have to be rude at times as a politician and you will certainly meet lots of rude people. How can an accomplished politician say you are rude for questioning my decision?

    • This is very true. Politics is another word for rudeness. Remember “nimuzungu wopusa”? Only an Under five can complain about rudeness in politics. Even Mwanawasa, Chiluba, Sata never complained about rudeness. Other things yes.

  10. It was Satas plan to infiltrate UPNDs top leadership so as to inject Bembas in the party. This is because generally Tongas detest Bembas. The fatal mistake by HH was to bring in the Cartel that is mainly composed of Bembas close to Sata and one stupid white man. The Cartels objective is to consume UPND from the inside. HH despite several warnings decided to help the Cartel to dissipate UPND into extinction. I see the Cartel moving back to PF after HH loses. I wish I was born Bemba !!!

  11. HH was correct and very strategic in choosing GBM as his Running Mate. When u see PF bloggers making noise about GBM as a Running Mate for HH then u know that was a smart decision by HH. GBM has very strong political mobilisation skills and PF knows that. The numbers coming to UPND rallies bears testimoy to the value that GBM brings to GBM.GBM given the dynamics of Zambian politics brings a lot of value to UPND. People are not discussing other Running Mates, including VEEP Inonge Wina becoz they are all light weights or nonentities. They do not add value to their parties while GBM is a serious asset to HH and UPND.

GBM, WOULD SAY, ‘WE HAVE SPENT ALL THE MONEY, MEANWHILE, I AM THE PARTY PRESIDENT UNTIL ELECTIONS ARE HELD’. UPND CAN’T ARGUE BECAUSE THERE HAS ONLY BEEN ONE ELECTION WHICH USHERED-IN HH AND NO ONE COMPLAINED.

  17. THE TRUTH IS THAT THE APPOINTMENT OF GBM AS THE RUNNING MATE FOR HH HAS HIT PF BELOW THE BELT. THEY ERRONEUOUSLY EXPECTED THAT GBM WOULD NOT MEET THE REQUIRED ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS AND THAT HE WOULD CONSEQUENTLY BE NOT APPOINTED RUNNING MATE. IN THEIR EXPECTATIONS THIS WOULD HAVE LED TO THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF GBM FOLLOWERS. THIS UNFOUNDED EXPECTATION LED TO LUNGU PREDICTING THAT AFTER THE NOMINATIONS THERE WOULD MASS DEFECTION FROM UPND AND HE INVITED THOSE WHO WOULD BE DEFECTORS TO REJOIN PF. UNFORTUNATELY THE ANTICIPATED MASS DEFECTION FAILED TO HAPPEN TO LUNGU’S FRUSTRATION.

  26. Perhaps ‘rude'</ is probably not the right word, especially if people are questioning the decision. People have the right to question who their potential veep is and eventually their potential president.

    They should have used the opportunity to explain why GBM and their ticket is good for the country. They should have taken advantage of the attention to explain why they are better and what they will do for the country.

    This is where Zambian politics is wrong, the politicians think the electorates have no right to question them; they think they are demi gods who know it all.

    Having said that HH was going to choose one of his veeps and strategically to try and get the northern votes (emphasis 'try').

    The choice of GBM for your running mate is a clear admission that because of the deceitful manner that you appointed your two vice presidents, you really did not have a field of good men to choose your RM from. What you should have done is carefully think through your choice of vice presidents so that either of two would be suitable RM, and more importantly, suitable material to succeed you as republican president if you died. As it is, people are now querying your wisdom to give them GBM as your choice of our republican president when or if you die in office, which God can make possible two months into your presidency, if…

    • It now looks like Zambia is for sale. GBM who has money can buy his way to the UPND RM and eventually the Presidency. Banda and all other UPND long serving members dont have the money so they cant be running mate even if they have the qualities to be president. How can a man who is months old in any party overtake those who have been in the party for years. Are we the voters going to sell our country?

    • You are very right.. What people are forgetting is that a VP in the new constitution is a president in waiting…. The moment people will stop thinking on party lines, the better for this country. Until then, we will remain undeveloped. People need to question the actions of these leaders, not worship them be it HH or ECL.

  31. As it is, people are now querying your wisdom to give them GBM as your choice of our republican president when or if you die in office, which God can make possible two months into your presidency, if you really believe in Him and His power. Remember that if you present yourself to us for election, then you are asking for our opinion about you and your RM. If you give us that choice, what is rude about us the voters seeking clarifications from you HH before we cast our votes? It is our right and you have no right to question our rights. Next time you want to open your mouth remember that WE are the voters!

  32. ZAMBIA IS NOW ONE OF THE MOST VIOLENT countries to live. The world is watching:
    VIOLENT political party cadres are harming Zambia’s “excellent” reputation as a peaceful country and threaten to immediately impact on the country’s investment climate, says German Ambassador to Zambia Bernd Finke. And Union Gold chairman Mark O’Donnell says the tourism sector in Zambia will not develop unless structural constraints such as the high cost of travel are addressed.

    Speaking during a panel discussion focusing on Zambia’s wildlife and tourism sector co-sponsored by “WE CREATE Zambia” in partnership with the US government, Ambassador Finke told stakeholders that the scourge of political violence, which had risen in recent weeks, was alarming the international community and was harming the…

  33. I do not know why HH could not read the evasion of UPND by the bemba mafia orchestrated by Guy Scott. The team that joined HH after failing to take over PF mobilized to find a lame duck party to control. HH became the multi-purpose vehicle. Just look at the list, Sampa, Guy Scott, Sichinga, GBM. These are guys that wanted the PF presidency but failed to wrestle it from an organized party. If HH loses this year, UPND will either go into extention or will be taken over by the bemba cartel. How was HH so gullible that he believed GBM has interests at heart? Surely does he believe Guy Scott has his HH’s interests or even that of UPND? HH will live to regret this decision he made on having GBM as his running mate. Just listen to the recording on Zambia reports, HH is now in panicky mode. He…

  34. No it is not rude as people have the right to know! Who do you think you are? Do you think this is 1964 where people will sit idle? You have picked a criminal who does his crime through white collar crime. He beats his wife and we don’t want to support gender based violence and against it, he has a history of crime flowing to his family so we have every right to know why. HH we supported you 100 % before but now will only support you if it means getting PF out but remember we are questioning every move and anything you say. This is ludicrous!

  36. These are signs of a Ka dictator, you have been criticizing other political party’s decisions and who do you think you are not to be questioned about your decision to choose this illiterate man to be number two in our great nation? It is a clear show that this perpetual looser has no heart for our country but only his insatiable appetite for power. He has seen that money is not everything, so he has to choose someone who has similar appetite. The electorate will teach you a lesson or two. It is not easy to imagine that we can have this insolent rude man and a Ka pseudo dictator without manners taking care of the affairs of our great nation, God forbid.
