UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says he drew guidance from God fight on during the crucial moments during the proceedings in the constitution court in the ongoing presidential petition.
And Mr Hichilema has reiterated that Edgar Lungu should step aside as President in line with the constitution now that the petition is underway.

Addressing a media briefing at his New Kasama residence, Mr Hichilema said the battle that he alongside his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba faced yesterday in court was not an easy one.

Recounting moments leading up to the landmark decision by the constitution court to extend the period of hearing the petition, Mr Hichilema said the two leaders succeeded to convince the court to hear their petition not because of their own intellect.

“The Petition could have collapsed yesterday but it didn’t. We endured from 08 Hours till past midnight and we were told by the respondents who kept interjecting us that we only had 20 to 30 minutes and I told them that we are addressing a people’s court and not your house. If you want to use your watch here, why don’t you go to your house,” Mr Hichilema stated.

He added, “Somehow when we were left just the two of us with my colleague GBM and I would like to sincerely thank him, it was now our time to take the stand and just at that moment my mind switched from concern to opportunity.”

I am a villager from Bweengwa, my rights are equal to that of every citizen of this country. We are equal at law and we must all be treated fairly.

“We saw an opportunity and we took the opportunity, it depends on how your mindset is, sometimes we must look at the thin line. Many times we must look at the opportunity and not just the risk. We saw an opportunity in that small window given to us to address the court and we took it and I believe it was the Almighty guidance and we spoke and today and those that were celebrating that the inauguration will be on Sunday are now crying.”

“Whatever you have heard, you have heard so many accolades attributed to me and GBM. Just as I was leaving court this morning, one Lawyer came up to me and said we are conferring with you the Professorship at law, I laughed and I said no I am a Finance person and I am not changing careers,” he said.

He added,

“What happened this morning is not because of our intellect, it’s not that we are special, It’s because of your strength and that of the 15 million Zambians. It’s because of the love of the people of Zambia that we do what we do.

Mr Hichilema emphasized the need for Zambia to respect the rule of law saying the rule of law must apply to everybody.

“I am a villager from Bweengwa, my rights are equal to that of every citizen of this country. We are equal at law and we must all be treated fairly.”

He said, “We are not asking for somebody to feel sorry for us, we are big boys, what we are asking for is independence and fairness of processes so that citizens can have recourse to institutions when they are aggrieved. Justice must allow fair treatment. I felt for the people of Zambia that if we could be treated that way, what about a 70-year-old widow in Shikanakashi, in Kalabo, in Siluwe, in Kaunganashi, in Mutonema, how will that citizen be given a fair treatment, it’s not possible. So you and I have an opportunity to secure those rights for all. We must be treated fairly.”

“We all need justice. If an election is stolen, we choose not to go on the streets, we choose to go to court for redress. To seek that which they will seek when they are soon out of office. Let us be each other’s keeper. Let us not listen to this ethnic division talk, there is no division based on ethnicity, what is there is division between those with a vision to govern and those without,” Mr Hichilema said.

Mr Hichilema said it is unbelievable that the PF have continued to disregard the constitution with impunity even on straight forward issues.

He said it is shocking that the PF even started organising Mr Lungu’s inauguration before the court had even heard the petition.

“I don’t understand why the PF can’t understand even simple issues in our constitution. It took me only one hour to go through that constitution. The constitution is clear that even after the Concort decision, nobody gets inaugurated until after seven days.”

He added that it is sad that public money was spent already to prepare for Mr Lungu’s inauguration next week just like it was done last Tuesday.

Mr Hichilema questioned as to who is going to account for those public funds that have been used to organised an illegal inauguration.

And Mr Hichilema says the constitutional court should direct on the matter of handing over presidency in order to prosecute the petition in a fair manner.
“This man should step aside to allow the petition to be discharged in a fair manner, is that asking for too much?”

    • Ah but nimusankwa uyu. Real zambian man. HH has stood up for natural justice and our rights while the rest of us have excercised cowardice. This man stands for the truth and what is right. I had the privilege of holding a quick meeting with him last night, I was so amazed by how passionate he is to see this country uplifted from the poverty under pf to a more progressive nation. I thank you sir and salute you. You stood in court and argued a point as a non lawyer and won the argument. Meanwhile lungu who claims to be a lawyer is even scared of facing simple BBC. kikikiki Lungu is an empty tin of kachaso

    • There was 14 days given 4 the petition to be heard but the petitioners chose to use the days the best way they knew how! This matter is not simple as some people might think. The respondents should petition for Chibomba to step aside before the hearing starts, otherwise another surprise in the ruling is coming. Ecl should be very careful, those mafia can buy the presidency. Watch the events carefully.

      UPND Lawyers wanted the 14 days extended but they were told it was not possible but you 2 managed to get an extension to the petition hearing.

    • Absolutely nothing in this illegality is divine. Be warned that the Justice system has actually given you a noose to strangle yourself blamelessly. They know your funeral is BiD but have to go an extra mile (extra-constitutional decision? just to clear any doubt that you have no case against the republic of Zambia. Applaud them too once the verdict is made. You have few days to prove beyond doubt that you are just playing with tolerance and lives of the people of Zambia. Count your days and blame no one.

    • HH, what value do you get for delaying the inauguration of his excellence Edgar C. Lungu.

      It will still take place anyway, delayed or not.

      It seems you are just a destroyer; first the referendum; and now the inauguration.

      Anyway, finally the people Zambia will still get both.

      So, if delaying these issues is what bring you you joy, you must be very happy now. But what gain is it?

      What an attitude!!!

    • Well done HH, as you mentioned the rule of law should apply to all Zambians. Our country has become so infuriated with corrupt minds, from the justice system to PF cadre at intercity terminal. Lungu should not rush to be inaugurated, he is thief who has stolen the election.

    • There is a lot of pathetic fools (PF) members on this site. Lungu is not president of Zambia and cannot do anything other than wait for oppositio to prove he is a fraud. Why is he trying to get inaugrauted quickly? Even breaching the constitution not to step aside. In fact, the 14 days should have been paused until he stepped aside.

    • THE CRUDE SATIRE SEEMS TO BE EMERGING THE FASHIONABLE POLITICAL PROTEST OF ONE HH
      ==========================================
      Ironically, HH seem to be enjoying the pressure he personally exerted on the that bench of lawyers making them look dull at their game. A mockery of the century and this could really have been spiritual as HH puts it himself. The question however is what kind of spirit played trick on the minds of the poor lawyers. For how long and how many times this petition extension will last, it seems no one knows. LET’S wait and see, for tomorrow is Monday!
      We shall surely live to blog another day. Weird satire indeed, the situation is twisted and screwed!
      Meanwhile, congrats ECL!

    • They swore to uphold the constitution. If the very judges decide to start mutilating that which they swore to uphold, does the nation have any constitution any more! The leader of this constitutional court should step aside before proceeding with the petition. The decision to adjourn was a big decision which president Lungu should not take lightly.

  3. HH is inspiring. The court is about justice. The concours was right to allow the petition to be heard otherwise there would have been no justice. We as countrymen and women need to stand up to any injustice whether it is a policeman at a road block, a rude minibus conductor or any politician. We are born free and we are not slaves to anyone. It is denial of these rights which brings poverty to the poor and marginalized as HH has cited. The Zambian cake is for all and not only for those who are connected. Zambia is in dire need of redemption especially from lawlessness being promoted by those in power. The cadre has become too powerful and can do anything without citizens being protected. The national anthem says free men we stand. God bless Zambia and this is a work of the Amighty God.

We r just waiting fo this formality to pass & we will swear him in. And remember now that u r delaying the swearing-in automatically then next elections ve moved to 2022. So continue with yo village gymnastics. We can already c that yo skeleton petition is not going anywhere. U ve not submitted any evidence. O we r hearing is nyioo nyioo!

  6. I personally think the petition collapsed. It’s likely on Monday ECL lawyers will submit that the case is no longer valid coz it’s beyond its jurisdiction in terms of time. It will be ECL’s turn to say he is not being treated fairly at law. What’s good for the goose is also good for the gander. Prepare inauguration! I REST MY CASE

    • ECZ was the first to break the law by extending the period for receiving results beyond the stipulated two days in order to allow ECL to overtake HH with fake results harked into its servers by Mwamba and Chavula. Concoart is just following ECZ’s example of extending time. If only the results of the legal two days are considered then HH is the winner.

The ineptitude of the KanCourt has been revealed. It does not matter what they have to say from now onwards.

Out of 14 days she spent two weekends not working. She never bothered to hold court in the evenings. What the hell was the KanCourt thinking, that there was no time limit to their proceedings?

    • The Constitution says the Concourt has 14 days to HEAR a petition. It does NOT say the proceedings must be COMPLETED in 14 days. Any Court of law can, by well established precedent, extend its sittings to hear more relevant testimony if it is not satisfied with what has been presented.

      These people crying about 14 days really have no idea what they are talking about.

  17. I THINK HH DID VERY WELL IN THE PREVIOUS ELECTION. HE MANAGED TO PENETRATE PF STRONGHOLDS. HOWEVER TO INSIST THAT THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED AND STOLEN FROM HIM IS ILLOGICAL. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE. HIS LAWYERS SAW THIS AND THAT IS WHY THEY WALKED AWAY ON HIM. THE LAWYERS OF HH WANTED TO DISCREDIT THE ELECTION AND TO GO ON AND ON AND ON.
    THE EXTENSION IS NOT MEANT TO BRING IN NEW EVIDENCE. IT IS MEANT TO PROVE THE ALREADY BUNGLED UP EVIDENCE THEY PRESENTED IN THE PRELIMINARIES.

    I THINK HH NEEDS COUNSELLING. MAYBE THE CHURCH (SDA) SHOULD ORGANISE A COUNSELLING SESSION FOR HIM. LET THEM ADVISE HIM TO PULL OUT LIKE HIS LAWYERS. IT IS FOR HIS GOOD AND MRS HAKAINDE AND THEIR FAMILY. THIS CASE IS AS GOOD AS BROUGHT IN DEAD (BID). THE COURT JUST WANTS TO SHOW TO HIM THAT THE CASE IS A NON STARTER.

    HH YOU ARE EXPERIENCING WHAT WE ORDINARY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH. LET US HOPE YOU WILL ALSO REVAMP THE LEGAL SYSTEM. WE HAVE SUFFERED AND ARE NOW BROKE. GOD BLESS YOU. YOU ARE GOING THROUGH ALL THIS FOR A PURPOSE SO THAT YOU FEEL SYMPATHY FOR THE PEOPLE WHEN YOU ASSUME POWER. SURELY STATE HOUSE IS YOURS.

  26. Hire those lawyers,

    Let the lawyers familiarise themselves with the case.

    Then let them argue . They have 4 days, if not 3 days of illegal time

    For they colleagues, they wasted the whole of constitutionally legal time of 14 days.

    But in all those days what they achieved was not noticeable.

    The only thing they will be remembered for is walking out after the preliminaries were exhausted and lost.

  27. HH full of himself, too pompous and egocentric for a leader. HH claims justice when he is a tinpot dictator. He fighting for Presidency for his personal glory, very dull chap. His turn for crying is coming next week, let him hold a press conference after that, too, and see how he will cry and complain like a baby

    • I agree with you,

      HH is full of both pride and self-overrating.

      Already, he feels he achieved more than what his lawyers did, just by pleading with the judges and winning sympathy which made the judges disregard both their own verdict as well as the constitution.

  28. THE BEHAVIOR OF HH IS LIKE REQUESTING THE DOCTOR TO POSTPONE SIGNING YOU A DEATH CERTIFICATE.THE DOCTOR HAS ALREADY WRITTEN: “PUPILS DILATED AND FIXED, NOT RESPONDING TO LIGHT. NO CARDIOPULMONARY ACTIVITY. CERTIFIED DEAD”. BUT AS HE IS ABOUT TO APPEND HIS SIGNATURE TO THE CERTIFICATE, HH SAYS , PLEASE WAIT. GIVE ME 4 DAYS.

    THE FACT STILL REMAINS THAT THAT BODY WILL REMAIN DEAD EVEN AFTER 4 DAYS. IN FACT YOU RISK DRIVING THE DEAD BODY (PETITION) INTO PUTREFACTION. AND GREAT WILL BE THE STENCH THAT SHALL EMANATE FROM THERE.

  29. Is this the more reason that this loser HH has been adamantly asking President Lungu to surrender power to the speaker?
    This calculated move by HH to usurp the powers of a legitimately elected President is too dangerous and the nosense of extending this failed and useless petition should not be entertained. 14 days elapsed on Friday 23:59 hours, the constitution is VERY CLEAR.14 days simply mean 14 days. So the period is closed and inauguration for ECL must take place, can you hear me PF lads?

  30. I am convinced beyond ressonable doubt that HH is not a politician. If he was he would understand the happenings at the grassroots himself and not relying on hearsay and stories from people who just want his money and favour. HH would becablebto see that the his lawyers recused themselves not because of time but because they realised that the evidence they had been given by HH and his “informers” was hogwash. They did not eant to suffer embarrassment and damage to their profedsions. Has HH asked himself why those lawyers abandoned him without consulting him? Which good lawyers will stick their necks out to gather and assimilate “evidence” and defend HH within two days? Whoever will do.that just wants to make a fortune from nothing out of HH. If HH made easy money, why not us, the new…

  33. The fact is 50.3% people rejected a tonga president because of the way HH’s tribesmen have treated Easterners and bembas in the past. For example Magande sourced donor funding to fund the persecution President Chiluba and prominent bembas. HH is aware of this and very happy that Chiluba was persecuted. Any corrupt judge or cartel operative trying to ignore this fact will have themselves to blame if 1.8 million people chose to become impatient. Maureen Mwanawasa has no shame, she lost the mayoral elections, people don’t trust anyone perceived as a cartel member.

  34. Does he even listen to himself? Even when he had blundered he thinks its the fault of other people! He needs psychiatric help! I pity the people who envy the wealth that he got as a result of selling the mines and other parastatals. Was he thinking about the poor then? If the poor are his number one concern why can’t he become philanthropist instead of forcing himself down the Zambia people. He is not popular and widely accepted by many Zambians. His votes were because there was a good voter turnout in the 3 provinces which voted for him. The secret societies and brotherhood satanic rituals have finally gone to hid head. Zambia will not be ruled by men or women who have made covenants with the devil! He squandered the 14 days by submitting the petition late and then filing application…

    • I hope the ConCourt has taken time to listen to the press conference of this pompous, selfish, and egocentric businessman. If they don’t act swiftly on Monday, the whole world will continue laughing at us. The court has misdirected itself by extending the 14 day period. That is why HH is laughing at our lawyers for the many years they spent at Law school to study their constitutional law which only took him one hour to understand it better! What a direct insult to the panel of learned justices? Please on Monday, bring this comedy of errors to its conclusion. The Zambian people are tired of this, and the whole world is laughing at us.

  37. Fellow brothers and sisters, let’s not be ignorant to the fact that politics is Satan’s game of causing distress to mankind (1 John 5:19). The devil uses politics, economics and false religion to mislead all from Gods promise of everlasting life through his son Jesus Christ. As we patiently await for this promised Kingdom (Daniel 2:44, Revelation 21:1-4) let us be realistic in our expectations and cautious in the way we despise the superior authorities God has allowed to govern our affairs (Romans 13:1). Earthly governments with their executive, the judiciary and parliament will never deliver a perfect functioning system because mankind does not have the ability to do so. It is only the true God that will provide lasting peace and justice (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

  40. HH now poking fun at the Concourt, ati “I knew that my case had collapsed, I had lost, the petition was out of time. But I played masonic tricks on the poor so called honourable justices and forced them to reopen a dead and closed case “. The HH version of thanks giving to the men and women of Concourt……..
    HH, take it from me today Sunday 4th September 2016, anything not of the Holy Ghost shall be crushed to pulp tomorrow Monday 5th September 2016.

  41. The problem I see with many carders is that they don’t see any other opportunity of making money unless through Government deals and appointments. That’s why they are busy hacking each other. Please take a look at the many opportunities in tourism, agriculture, trade etc and please stop looking at the Zambian market alone there is the whole of southern African region.

    Even somalians based in Zambia are making more money in business than us Zambians who are busy politicking….talking about HH or ECL, yes we know we can only do proper business in the correct political and economic environment but let us expend more of our energy on the economic front

  42. HOW TO IDENTIFY AN EMPTY HEADED PF CADRE:

    1. When they don’t understand an issue, they resort to insults.
    2. When they fail to interlectually influence, they resort to violence; physical and verbal.
    3. They think they are masters at law when they most likely failed their grade 12 exam. This is easy to spot because their grammer is usually worse than a modern day pre-schooler’s.
    4. Like animals in the jungle, they choose their leader using barbaric methods of who is the most violent and the loudest noise maker.
    5. They can kill for bread crumbs.
    6. Like a miserable pack of hyenas, they have a tendency of fighting over the LION’s catch.. when the lion returns, they cower to dark corners cowardly licking themselves and making *****ic noises.

    This is what most of us see in PF so…

    Businessman. Is that why you get corky when asked about your wealth ? Instead of using the opportunity to be Grateful that you were illegally granted an extension of jurisdiction to be retired as politician and find Lawyers to defend your petition on Monday, you choose to have a congressional conference and inciting more violence and morking the same court which you emotionally campaigned against during referendum.
    What a Disgusting Pathetic self egotistical being you are. You have no interest whatsoever for the Zambian…

  44. Last Sunday, I was at church and found ECL there. When he spoke, he said that when he was seated next to our Pasteur he asked him; “who do you think was bringing about tribalism in Zambia?”. The Pasteur didn’t answer the question. So ECL volunteered and told him “it is us the politicians, otherwise there is nothing”. That day I thought ECL was finally coming out clean to make a declaration before God on dealing with this problem which he admitted is part of. It didn’t happen. He went on talk about … the usual things.
    I guess we can’t be what we’re not.

  48. According to the UPND their election votes were stolen and they have hard hitting evidence . What I do not understand is why on God’s earth were the UPND lawyers not proceeding with their main petition case and produce the evidence which they told the whole world about? Why were they dealing with peripheral issues and not hitting the nail on the head. We hear petitions about the 14 days or the continued stay in power by ECL and the Speaker taking over.. low priority issues.. Is it because they do not have any evidence after all? Zambians want to hear who their next president is and this will come from the main petition about the election results I believe. I sincerely hope tomorrow when they come to court they will not dwell on low key issues as before….per their slogan the…

Per their slogan the country must move forward and yet the actions of UPND lawyers are bringing Zambia to stand still…You have “good evidence ” but you go to court to play a game of hide and seek with respondents and judges..Do you people realise you are impactively on the economy negatively by your actions. If you do not have evidence which seems to be the case judging from your conduct just own up for the sake of moving Zambia forward as your slogan says ….
