Hakainde Hichilema

Deputy Chairman of elections for the Patriotic Front Kelvin Bwalya has challenged United party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema to pick up Post Newspaper’s 6.1 million US dollars ZRA tax bill and pay it up.

In a statement released to the media, Mr Bwalya described the UPND leader as a dangerous man that lacks the temperament of a national leader, but only driven by blind ambition and not national interest.

” We advise you as a self-proclaimed rich businessman and ‘Master of Wisdom’ to do the noble thing; pick up Fred Membe’s 63 billion Kwacha (6.1million US dollars) ZRA tax bill and pay it up. It is within your reach after all as a rich man together with other sympathisers at foreign embassies that pursue tax offenders in their country but want them forgiven in Zambia,” read the statement

Below is the full statement

LAWYER KELVIN BWALYA ASKS HH TO BAIL OUT FRED MEMBE OVER TAX DEBT

26th June 2016, Lusaka—the words coming of the mouth of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema regarding the legal halting of business at The Post newspaper clearly shows that Hichilema is a “dangerous man that lacks the temperament of a national leader. One who is driven by blind ambition and not national interest.”

There is no other way to describe him ever since he gave President Edgar Lungu an ultimatum to allow the tax defaulting tabloid to resume operations despite a proven case against it the Supreme Court of Zambia.

If this is the kind of leadership we will get from a man who calls himself an ‘an economic messiah’ then the opposition has a long way to go before they can ever convince Zambians to give them a vote to oversee the affairs of Zambia.

How can a leader worth his salt publicly state that a defaulter must be excused from a criminal offence of ‘avoiding to pay taxes that must help Zambians access drugs in hospitals and save babies from dying needlessly at birth, or indeed sinking bore holes so that rural Zambians can access to clean drinking water?

Such rhetoric defeats all logic especially when it comes from a man who for years has been boasting that he has the monopoly of intelligence—this is not intelligent at all and can only lose Mr Hichilema votes in the face of those that want The Post to pay Caesar what belongs to Caesar.

His (HH) statements, however, did not come as total surprise to us looking at his dangerous pattern of desperation to rule Zambia, and turn perhaps mould it into yet another pet business project the way he tinkered with the privatisation of some Zambian assets. For his personal gain.

Justice must be seen to be blind Mr Hichilema you do not dispense a certain dose of justice to Fred Membe (The Post) just because you want him to sing praises for you and demand a different set of justice for those you perceive to be opposed to your self-righteousness.

National leadership does not work like that at all—you cannot shield offenders just because you want to become a President against all odds. If you hypothetically became President how would you expect to:

  • Raise money to pay farmers for their maize crop?
  • Raise money to buy and distribute in puts to farmers on time?
  • Raise money to pay policemen, teachers, nurses and Doctors on time?
  • Raise money to construct roads so that goods are moved from points of production to points of consumption or indeed build new schools and rehabilitate old ones, without taxes?

Running a government is not like running a back-yard ranch comrade Hichilema it is very tough business which President Lungu in under a year and half has shown that he can do with utmost resilience and tenacity and objectivity.

We advise you as a self-proclaimed rich businessman and ‘Master of Wisdom’ to do the noble thing; pick up Fred Membe’s 63 billion Kwacha (6.1million US dollars) ZRA tax bill and pay it up. It is within your reach after all as a rich man together with other sympathisers at foreign embassies that pursue tax offenders in their country but want them forgiven in Zambia.

A friend in need after all is a friend indeed as the adage goes, you have already entered into an alliance with The Post to receive favourable coverage, it’s time to honour your end of the bargain instead of issuing empty ultimatums to President Lungu for actions not even remotely linked to him.

President Lungu is busy “sontaling” 8000kms of roads, 650 health posts, universities, agriculture projects, energy projects to reduce load shedding etc. and many other practical issues that shall eventually have a long term positive effect on the future of Zambian children.

“Mr Hichilema use your deep pockets to bail out your friend…he has been around for you. It is time for you to be around for him by removing his name from the tax defaulting shame list.”

Conversely, we call upon Zambians to take a step back and check what kind of leader Hichilema may turn out to be if they gave him a chance to run a government:

One of his (Hichilema) most famous decision after all was to anoint Geoffrey Mwamba as his running mate, a man with a colourful documented police history of beating his wife, his workers and his sister in law, it is all there recorded in the troubled The Post newspaper for everyone to verify.

From appointing a documented violent man, he has now given President Lungu an ultimatum to pardon a newspaper that is taking money out of the ZRA treasury that must be used to buy drugs in hospitals and pay teachers and policemen and soldiers.

We remind dear Zambians that “Fred Membe and The Post are tax offenders while the ordinary Zambians are VICTIMS of The Post decision not to pay taxes, an action that even robbed benefits of their own workers. Ordinary Zambians that pay for importing second hand cars for resale are VICTIMS while The Post are offenders, we must not ever lose sight of this fact. Any attempt to drag President Lungu into the matter is cheap politics by Hichilema.

    • It’s the only reastic option other than making hollow ultimatums on a people’s Government that they should divert tax payers’s funds to offset a private burden. This is why Hichilema’s political opportunism will remain for classroom political theory forever. How would Government justify the move to divert public resources to redeem tax evaders? That is sabotage of the economy in unprecedented way.

    • Its a scheme by PF to distort money out of HH and the POST. They are broke and cant afford to run the campaign. A warning to Zambians. Dictators always hide behind democratically elected leaders. Usually they are hand picked because of their pretense to be humble and loyal. A democrat does not need to be a boot-licker. Once handed the reigns of power a boot-licker turns into the worst dictator ever imagined.
      I propose a bail out fund fro the post for the sake of democracy and press freedom. I don’t agree with everything the post publishes, like the way they covered Sata, but they are a better evil than these others who shield criminality. I call upon fellow Zambians in the diaspora lets bail out the post. ZRA please publish a bank acc. where we can send money for your taxes.

    • Tax avoidance or non-compliance is a very serious case. in fact had the post committed this offence in South Africa the tax authorities would have started with wiping off all monies in their bank accounts before shutting them down. There’s nothing wrong with the post being critical of government, but it’s wrong and naïve of them to think that what they say about government attracts its scrutiny of their business. Even at a personal level, you cant go round insulting me in public when you owe me – i’d definitely sort you out!!! Sympathisers of the post should ask them to sue GRZ if they think the post is innocent than condemn govt for punishing a CRIMINAL.

    • This ZRA money can be taken from post without closing the doors of the Post building. The court order is enough to get the money owed to ZRA without closing down operations.
      The closure is a political move by PF no doubt about that. We do not see this kind of mediocre here in developed world. Tax office don’t go to close the offices but they just help to work out how payments will be made within a specified time. Closure is political bwana.

HOW MUCH MORE MONEY DO OTHER MEDIA HOUSES AND OTHER FIRMS OWE ZRA, YET THEY ARE NOT BEING FOLLOWED? LET US BE SERIOUS GUYS. POST IS VICTIM OF LUNGU’S REGIME BECAUSE THEY CALLED A SPADE A SPADE, AND EXPOSED THE ILLS OF LUNGU AND HIS GOVERNMENT. THIS ISSUE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HH. AS ZAMBIANS, WE ARE HERE TO DEMAND IMMEDIATE OPENING OF THE POST NEWS PAPER WITHOUT CONDITIONS ATTACHED. POST IS READY TO PAY ZRA, BUT NEED A TIME FRAME IN WHICH TO DO SO. LET POST OPERATE. ZRA IS LOSING MILLIONS OF TAX FROM POST IF THEY KEEP IT SHUT. THIS IS NONSENSE.

    • Govt has admitted that none of the mines has paid the 20% mineral royalty since 2014. Why doesn’t ZRA shut these mines down, sell their assets, and recover those taxes? Your answer to this is the same basis for shutting down The Post.

  3. Why should HH have to pay or bail anyone out? He is condemning the act which is a world wide media circus by now and being condemned by many nations and organisations. This has to do with politics and PF is using anything they can to have the better hand. People might think it’s working but it will actually work in the favour of the opposition. Too many crooked ways by brainless and dysfunctional PF. How many people have left your party so far? What quality leaders do you really have? Your own president is vision-less and cannot even lead a trip of goats.

  5. Lungu is the fastest growing millionaire in Zambia and during the last 16 months has made K13million. Did Lungu pay tax on this loot? All state Newspapers and all mines have tax liabilities to ZRA. Has ZRA closed these businesses? The closure of the Post has very little to do with paying tax. It has everything to do with Lungu’s Election Rigging Strategy. The fear is that the Post would expose the planned cooking of elections results in favour of Lungu. They are using tax to muzzle and silence the Post. The problem is there is no way Lungu can win a clean vote against HH so Lungu has no choice but to rig these elections at all costs. Time will tell whether Lungu’s election rigging tactics will work given Team HH/GBM popularity.

  7. This is pure insults tinged with jealousy and envy for HH’s which Mr Bwalya will never have in his life or death. It is now clear that the closure of The Post is another way of attacking HH.
    Kevin Bwalya is just another MOTHER FUC.KER SUCKING LUNGU’s DIC.K so that he can get a job from the most corrupt and inept President. These are charlatans of corruption who are afraid of their shadows and exposure for their theft of public funds.

Bravo ZRA. Kudos to ECL for not succumbing to the craftiness of Mmembe and his friends. Zambia needs the money.

He has played on Zambians enough and Zambians have not responded by going on the street with all this garbage, he will retain power the same way and he knows Zambians will do nothing. Darkness has hit Zambia. The onlywish is to wish him……. then mama Wina can be president then we will make sure mama Wina is controlled by real Zambians not these foreigners.

    2. ZRA has in the past year tried to get this money but was hampered by legal restraints from the court of laws.
    3. HH an aspiring presidential candidate should not be encouraging people or organisations not to be paying tax for payment of tax is legal.
    4. The Americans are condemning the government for this “warrant of distress” to recover money owed to the Zambian people and yet they relentlessly pursue their own using the IRS including jailing people.

Most people have been working for many years and serving but do not have such kind of money that Edgar has. Shameful, when there is no medicine in the clinics and poverty rate is growing, he amasses such amounts of billions within six months and low thinking people are saying sonta!

The Post now is essentially a UPND campaign poster carrying UPND stories. Maybe funded by HH. I bet businesses are now shunning the paper, who wants to ssociaye with a criminal, a tax defaulter? Not good for any decent business house. Now how can the Post survive like this? To all intents and purposes the Post is dead and lying in the mortuary at Bwinjimfumu road.

Now, one of the tax payers in the name of The Post has been very funny over the years by behaving like they are a Government institution as well. Please, just pay. That’s the only solution remaining now after all other noble means failed in the past. Viva ZRA!!

If this issue isn’t a political issue, why is this man the spokesperson for the ZRA? Is he a government official? It defies logic. This is why we cannot get anywhere as a nation. We have seen pastors like Pule, with little integrity and moral authority being paraded at meetings, and then this? How can you have this President continuing with such bad judgement? I know that many people don’t read these online papers but I get a feeling that we are at crossroads. It is either we move forward to a new era with change or stay in the past with ECL. This election will be a major point in our country’s history.

  31. I argue the US embassy to bail out the Post as part of the good governance support to government and suspend all other aid to Zambia including HIV/AIDS and Malaria control, and Budget deficjt and balance of payments support.

    Then the crook Kelvin Bwalya should tell us how he will finance the budget. Maybe his President will use some of his illgotten wealth from his pocket to finance. Lawyers who atole clients money tend to flock together.

    • Yes the US should not have created the HIV/AIDS virus in the first place and gotten slaves from African to enrich themselves.

  32. Its really a fool’s world now. You have a president who made $2.3m in 18 months and nobody questions how he got it. U have fake priests taking people’s wives while their husbands finance his lavish life style lol. Now you have an ***** lawyer asking a private citizen to bail out a private company towards the government and some foolish people actually concur.

  34. I am ready to contribute a K25 000.

    Are there 3000 like minded individuals who can join me so that we put this matter to rest? The K75,000 raised will clear the ZRA debt and then allow some breathing space for the Post for outgoings.

    Talk is cheap and a waste of time. Can Madam Sylvia Masebo get active so that we complete this noble assignment.

  35. How can the POST owe Z R A 6.1 billion dollars? Has Z R A moved to the States that they should quote the figure in dollars. Come on you people even a fool can pick up that this is a fake figure, You guys are going to pay and pay dearly for all you are doing to the Zambian people in your quest to stay in power because you risk prosecution for your deeds BUT WE ARE KICKING YOU GUYS OUT, NO MATTER COME WHAT MAY.

  37. ZAMBIANS HAVE RECEIVED ENOUGH LIES FROM LUNGU AND HIS PF MINIONS, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! WE SHALL NOT SIT BACK AND LISTEN TO YOUR LIES ANYMORE. WE SHALL TAKE ACTION BY VOTING FOR CHANGE. LUNGU’S CAMP IS A CAMP OF CRIMINALS AND LOOTERS WHO JUST WANT TO REMAIN IN POWER SO THAT THEY CONTINUE SERVING THEMSELVES, AND NOT SERVING THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. LUNGU’S MAIN AGENDA IS LOOT OUR COUNTRY OF THE MUCH NEEDED RESOURCES. LUNGU IS LYING TO YOU WITH ALL THESE EMPTY PROMISES JUST BECAUSE HE WANTS YOUR VOTE. ONCE YOU VOTE FOR LUNGU ON 11 AUGUST, HE WILL FORGET ABOUT YOU AND YOU WILL REMAIN WALLOWING IN ABJECT POVERTY. IF IT COMES FROM PF, IT IS A LIE!

  39. I have liked this topic and I have learnt Zambians have a lot of information and huge data. My conclusion is that the best way to evade tax is to own a paper and denounce government all the way so that people can sympathize with you at closure. empty tins make too much noise. eg: compare the two running mates and see which one is an empty tin, compare the newspapers, etc. hahahahahahahaha

    • UPND is good party, the problem is its readers. GBM and HH can not make good presidents of any country.
