President Edgar Lungu once again showed enhanced leadership qualities when he signed the Peace Accord at the behest of the Electoral Commission of Zambia on Friday in order to avoid further pre-election violence.

UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema on the other hand lamentably failed the leadership test when he “contemptuously with scorn, dismissed the ECZ initiative and showed Zambians more clearly, for the first time perhaps, that he lacks a leadership temperament.”

We say this because the initiative of the ECZ was meant to be in more ways than one, a peace contract that would bind the signatories to a peaceful process as our democracy continues to grow.

the amount of scorn and the level of disrespect for the ECZ is very scary and could mean one or two things—either Mr Hichilema is consumed with his own self-importance that he does not see any reason to respect authority or he has decided to continue on a violent that his party has been associated with since the days of the infamous Mapatizya formula.

How else can one explain his deep rooted distaste for peace when the gauntlet was thrown squarely in his face?

That is why we have been cautioning the Zambian electorate that as we approach the crucial Election Day on 11th August, they must choose a tested and humble leadership that has shown that it can also respect authority.

President Lungu is currently the legally elected Head of State, he could have come up with one reason or another to stay away from the ECZ event that came when he actually had a pre-planned programme for the tour of Northern Province.

But because he is a sound lawyer, a sworn leader of the nation, he humbly obliged once again and postponed his trip, setting aside other equally important national tasks and showed commitment to peace by signing the ECZ paper.

We are convinced therefore that Mr Hichilema cherishes violence—not only because of some colourfully violent people in his senior ranks—but because he refused to rise to the occasion and show true commitment to peace via a signature.

The other issue that immediately comes to our minds is that Mr Hichilema, who for all purposes and intent appears to have conceded defeat ahead of the August polls, is in his usual arrogant and contemptuous refusal to sign the peace accord simply ‘Grand-Standing.’

Mr Hichilema will use every opportunity to steal the lime-light starting from prancing around because his cadre is dead of simply insulting the police whom he thinks are morons.

Let us also urge security personnel in Zambia to deny Mr Hichilema and his people a vote on August 11 because after all, “he reckons the police in Zambia is made up of morons.”

Today Mr Hichilema has called the police, “morons” tomorrow he will call the Zambia Airforce (ZAF) morons and the day it will be the army, the Zambia National Service and indeed anyone that does not march up to his self-proclaimed superior intellect.

If he asked for any advice from us, we would tell him one thing: “apologise to the police for calling them morons. These are family people who put in lots of hours to protect the peace we cherish and you can only demoralise them by calling them morons in the face of duty.”

It is this kind of behaviour that exposes Mr Hichilema for whom he really is, a person that embraces violence and respects no one else but himself.

It is also a time like this that we wonder where the vocal NGOCC, Women’s Lobby group and the LAZ are when they are needed the most.

“Why haven’t the NGOCC, LAZ and Women’sLobby remained silent in the face of Hichilema refusing to commit to a peaceful electoral process?”

Mr Hichilema effectively “endorsed violence when he refused to sign a peace accord. Zambians must be wary of a leader that refuses to commit to peace and the UPND leader is one such man.”

President Lungu must once again be commended for walking the walk and talking the talk as far as wanting to have a peaceful election.

President Lungu has continued to show a deep resilience and focus as a tested leader and that is why we keep re-affirming that he needs to win the election so that he can continue leading the nation on a path of peace. Mr Hichilema has pathetically failed as an aspiring leader.

SIGNED: Hon. Given Lubinda, Minister of Agriculture, and Aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Kabwata Constituency

  1. HH is wise, he wants the ECZ peace accord to be revised so that Lungu does not use the police to intimidate UNPD supporters……. WISE PEOPLE READ BEFORE SIGNING ANYTHING…. Drunkards like Lungu and you Lubinda just sign without reading and understanding the contents of a document. One day you will sign for you sour to be taken.

    • Spot on Mwense. But allow me to grudgingly disagree with you a bit because I believe Lungu and Lubinda actually read the contents and knew they were tailored to intimidate UPND supporters just as you have said above, hence their haste in signing that document.

      Most important however, I seriously believe that whatever the contents of that document, President Lungu signed it without any intention whatsoever of fulfilling or adhering to it. The few pictures made public from that gathering show the man sleeping for goodness sake. This is the man who swore on the bible to uphold the constitution of land during his swearing in. Can anyone genuinely say this man has striven to uphold the constitution at all times? What is an ECZ document if he cannot follow the constitution?

    • What would be the purpose of signing a misguided peace deal just after the killing of a UPND member. PF Police have not even arrested anyone. Isnt that an insult to HH and the UPND. Lungu will never honor the agreement he signed and people will continue dying in Lungu’s hands

    • Lubinda is a moron.
      Is he standing against HH in Kabwata? Why is Edgar’ campaign manager? This is why Sata chased him from cabinet, he likes kissing bosses’ asses. Dora Siliya called him a brushed ego. What Lubinda is yapping on security forces is equal to treason, who is he to command them to votes.
      And that Edgar is just watching, he can’t notice that Lubinda & Frank are the ones standing against HH? Edgar is so weak, he can’t form a campaign team.

    • Lubinda, how is your intellect measuring up to the person you are always insulting? Lubinda you have failed the agricultural sector with shifty policies everyday. One point you allow export the next day you stop it, only because you have moved what you want to export with vested interest.

    • By the way Lubinda and et al, you are the only ones with happy faces and dancing in the middest of sad faces. You do not wander what is happening there? The rest of the congregates are not happy with your leadership and surprised that you two are having fun of a life time in the face of hyper inflation and increased cost of living in the absence of jobs on the Belt.

  2. KWENAA! LUBINDA IS USELESS! KABWATA SEND THIS MAN PACKING. WE NEED NEW IDEAS. LUBINDA HAS MADE THREE NONSENSICAL STATEMENTS IN ONE WEEK! SURELY KABWATA IS THIS WHO YOU WANT FOR AN MP? TOTALLY USELESS.
    “KABWATA VOTE BA SATA”

  3. It never came as a surprise to Zambians that Hexit Hexit could reject peace. I mean who doesn’t know that he is the one fanning all this violence never experienced before in Zambia.
    When GBM was recorded on Copperbelt insinuating violence this HH was challenged to discipline him but refused categorically.
    Well Zambians know that HH is a devil and those who support are either hypnotised or basically the same.
    God will NEVER let his people to be led by blood thirsty chaps like him and let him be prepared to leave politics on 11 August 2016.

  4. VERY bitter words from an ASPIRING CANDIDATE UNDER PF , HH is not VIOLENT MAN neither does he support it , PF IS VOILENT and their works are their to see , ECL himself is not hiumble but cannot be bold on decision making no one listens to him its free for all. He is not a leader, to trust SATA was bold in making decisions , in one yr ECL has been warming the seat for HH , HE NEVER MADE ANY DECISION, IF HE COULD ATTEMPT THEN HE REVERESES IT HAHAHAHA… Sorry PF IF it was someone else as president we could vote for u in august but not this so called humble clueless leader

  5. Bo Lubinda has now gone completely berserk. ECZ have agreed to amend that peace accord to include the provisions that HH and others insisted on. Mind you it was not just HH who refused to sign. For ECZ to agree to include those items it means they are important. So Bo Lubinda should not try to be clever. We need peace and order in this country and we want our leaders to be serious and honest in what they do.

    • Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters

  6. Thanks Given Lubinda, true words in all respects. Chabipa.ba underfive HH, the man is defeated even before the ballot papers arrive in Zambia. The boy is probably looking for face saver right now, including getting himself arrested.

    • Terrible crapper endorses chicken crapper. Instead of PF (Party of f00ls) they should be called PC (Party of Crappers)

    • Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters

  7. Ever since Lungu came in his major attribute has been to seek popularity by reversing decisions on his failed programmes – ZESCO tariffs, maize floor price, etc and now commanding police to deal with the opposition. He creates the mess and wants everyone to share the blame. What rubbish. As said, the wise scrutnise before accenting. Lungu is very cheap and now his henchmen must stand on top of an anthill to condemn wise men. SHAME ON YOU LUBINDA WITH YOUR INHERITED SHALLOWNESS!

  8. Many supporters of UPND were shot at the cancelled Chawama rally and three people reportedly died. The Police admitted shooting the UPND supporters and killing in cold blood Ms Mapenzi Chibulo.Instead of dealing with the murderers or culprits ECZ suspended election campaigns in Lusaka and Namwala. ECZ in terms of the electoral laws of Zambia should have punished the culprits but they haven’t. Instead of enforcing the Electoral Code ECZ has come up with a Peace Accord which they wanted UPND, the victim of the shootings and murder,to accept by appending their signature. Why not use existing electoral laws and law and order maintenance Act to curb violence? Why do we need a Peace Accord which is not backed by any law? HH was very wise to refuse to sign this Peace Accord. What is the…

    • Upnd hh are even luck for Ecz to come up with that peace accord otherwise Ecz could ‘ve just used powers vested in the law to disqualify Upnd.

  9. I’m a lozi guy sure i complained when sata kicked my brother bo Lubinda out of his cabinet sure a can see the reasons the man is very dull no wonder he was fighting with that cader boy chilufya tayali dragging him to court ( luli kwabulozi a kuna bana) sure in barotsland there no more men like mundia nalumino people who can stand for the truth &poor all way my brother wants his self desire all people who where not of satas idea’s have regroup that’s why things can’t move the way things should move a man’s no should be no stand some thing not for nothing & your yes should be yes

    • Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters

  10. What game is Edith Nawakwi playing? We were told FDD has approached ConCourt on the cancellation of campaigns in Lusaka and Namwala. Edith Nawakwi signed the Peace Accord without waiting for the Concourt judgment. Is she confused or warming up to Lungu for a selfish reason?I will not be surprised if Edith Nawakwi is working for the same cause with Lungu behind the scenes. It seems u can only trust Edith Nawakwi at your own peril.Time will tell!

  11. HH , GBM , Scott and others have been with us through many elections and never have we seen such levels of violence, murder and systematic erosion of democratic rights before.
    Only when lungu comes into the picture do we this unpresidented violence and intimidation of citizens and harassing and closing down independent media.

    Is it a coincidence that only when lungu is around do we experience some of the most violent periods in democratic our history ???
    I think not. I think lungu will never give up power come what may. He is prepared to kill to stay in state house

    • Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters

  12. Bitter mother fuc.ker and dog Lubinda!
    Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters who are aspiring to rule our country – and we are saying NO WAY !!
    Like it or not Lubinda will lose that Kabwata seat to Mulenga just like Lungu will certainly lose to HH.
    It will be a double knock out of the 2 thieves!!

  13. Bitter d.og Lubinda!
    Lubinda is a convicted thief that STOLE MONEY from Chikuni Jam Factory that was set up the Catholic Church in Monze. Lungu and Lubinda are both thieves – men of questionable characters who are aspiring to rule our country – and we are saying NO WAY !!
    Like it or not Lubinda will lose that Kabwata seat to Mulenga just like Lungu will certainly lose to HH.

  14. Bitter and loser LubindWa!

  15. ITS TIME FOR LUBINDA TO RETIRE!!!
    MULEZZ IS THE NEW VOICE OF DALLAS CITY. DALLAS CITY IS DONE WITH SELFISH POLITICS. KABWATA HAS ALWAYS VOTED FOR PROGRESS AND THIS TIME ITS BYE BYE BO LUBINDA. GO EAT YOUR MONEY WE NEED FRESH IDEAS. CAN YOU IMAGINE ALL THOSE YEARS AND LUBINDA FAILED TO EVEN IMPROVE A BUS STOP. IMAGINE?
    PF AN LUBINDA ARE GOING BYE BYE
    THATS OVER FINSISH!!!!!!

  16. GIVEN LUBINDA SHOULD BE THE LAST PERSON TO QUESTION OTHERS. WHY DID SATA FIRE U SIR?YOU CONDEMN UPND TODAY & YET BOTH U AND ECL WERE MADE BY THIS SAME PARTY. ITS LIKE INSULTING YOUR PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER. OPENING BARS & NIGHT CLUBS, AMASSING PLOTS, GETTING FILTH RICH WITHIN A SHORT TIME AMONG OTHERS DO NOT CONSTITUTE GOOD LEADERSHIP. BY THE WAY, WHEN DO U INTEND TO LEAVE KABWATA CONSTITUENCY SIR? ITS NOT A PERSONAL TO HOLDER SEAT, LET YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE CLEMENT WHO U BLOCKED TAKER. A GOOD ACTOR LEAVES THE STAGE WHILST THE AUDIENCE IS STILL CLAPPING.

    • In your dreams. Most people in Kabwata are just drunkards easily bought no wonder there are alot of night clubs around that area. The man will only be voted out when those people find what to do apart from drinking. Surely, you can not be voting for such people and expect things to be okay. I see the same reasoning with people in Roan.

  17. lubinda is right. on many occasions hh has failed to take up the opportunity to identify with the voters. hh is subtly apolitical.

  18. Bo lubinda you hav really gone crazy u think we Zambians nw can buy your stories no matter how you are going to paint HH black we are still voting even when PF can decide to stand with a frog we will vote 4 a frog because we kno that we will have peace. its really very pain for lubinda to even have the audacity to say your cadre referring to my innocent sister who was murdered by your pf police shame upon you lubinda God will surely punish you with your blood pf.u are even saying signing for wat, what came out of the so called meeting if that genuine why still violence who has the power to stop violence between yo lungu and hh. you think we are fools you president is busy blinding Zambians by false condemnation of violence on the other is sending pf police and cadres to kill innocent…

  19. I got a distinction in European History in Form V in the Cambridge Exams.

    Remember Chamberlains policy of appeasement to one Hitler?

    There is no.peace under Edgar Chagwa Lungu when opposition supporters are maimed, shot and murdered for campaigning.

    To have a truce with the devil is like signing your own death warrant. ECZ are agents of Lungu PF.

    If it ultimately reaches need for a liberation struggle with required sacrifice, let it be!!

  20. IF THERE IS ONE THING EVERYONE OF US SHOULD BE CAREFUL ABOUT, IS SIGNING DOCUMENTS. BEFORE SIGNING, READ THROUGH AND ENSURE U UNDERSTAND THE CONTENTS BEFORE DOING SO. HH HAS NOT REFUSED TO SIGN, HE HAS MERELY DONE WHAT AN INTELLIGENT PERSON DOES. READ, COMPREHEND, ANALYZE AND ACT. LETS LEARN TO BE OBJECTIVE WHEN DEALING WITH MATTERS OF NATIONAL INTEREST. DO KNOW WHY ZAMBIA HAS THE WORST SHAPE OF A MAP? THAT DEPRESSION THAT CUT ZAMBIA INTO TWO? ITS BECAUSE SOMEONE WAS CARELESS IN SIGNING WHAT THEY DID NOT UNDERSTAND AND ENDED UP GIVING PART OF THAT COUNTRY AWAY

  21. LT seems to be crawling with UPND zealots. You can insult me as much as you can, but the fact is that UPND is losing badly on 11 August 2016. Mark my words!
