GBM and HH at the Magistrate Court
FILE: GBM and HH

The opposition UPND has written to the Inspector General of Police to allow party members hold a peaceful walk from the Party Secretariat to the residence of their President Hakainde Hichilema.

Party Secretary General Stephen Katuka says the objective of the walk is to petition the President and his running-mate Geoffrey Mwamba to take the presidential petition case to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Below is the copy of the later copied to the media.

Dear Inspector General:

We seek your office’s immediate intervention concerning our application to hold a peaceful walk from the UPND Secretariat to the residence of our Party’s President, His Excellency, Hakainde Hichilema’s, residence on Saturday the 24th of September 2016 at 14:00 hours. The route we intend to use is Burma Road.

The objective of the walk is to petition UPND President, his Excellency, Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate, Hon. Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, to take the presidential petition case to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and International Court of Justice (ICJ).

We are, however, dismayed by the failure of the Police to effectively process this application despite the fact that we adhered to the preconditions and requirements by submitting the application on the 16th of September 2016. This application was addressed to the Police Commissioner, Lusaka Province.

We were later notified that the Police Commissioner only saw the application on Monday the 19th of September 2016 and hence the application couldn’t be considered because it fell out of the stipulated seven days that the police should be notified before the date of the event. We were also advised to address the application to the Police Command, Lusaka Urban and not the Police Commissioner, Lusaka province.

As per guidance, we resubmitted the application and addressed it to the Lusaka Urban Police Command. To our shock and disbelief, the Police Command told us to write to the Lusaka City Council to get permission to use their road. Instead of stamping our application letter, the Police Command just wrote their address on it. See attached.

This has left our party in a dilemma as we are shocked at the response of the Police. We are aware that the law clearly stipulates that all we need to do is inform the Police before we hold such an event and there is nowhere in the laws of the land where it states that we need to get permission from the council.

We strongly feel this is just one of the many attempts by those in authority to violate and silence the opposition and those with dissenting views in this country. We need not remind you that it’s within our rights to hold such a procession as long as we meet all the requirements of the laws of the republic of Zambia. Denying us this occasion will be a clear violation of our rights and freedoms which are evidently enshrined in the Constitution of Zambia.

It’s not a hidden secret that when the PF members want to match or demonstrate, they do it without following the due process of the law. They are free to willfully stage a protest or demonstrate without the consent of the Police. As a matter of fact, they do it so willfully giving the impression that they are above the law.

The UPND is a law abiding and peaceful party. We have had our rights subdued over the course of time and we feel this should come to a stop immediately. Zambia belongs to all of us who live in it. Public roads belong to all Zambians and it’s shocking that we have to ask for permission to use what belongs to us. We need to move away from these retrogressive cat and mouse games.

We await your positive response.

Sincerely,

Stephen Katuka.

Secretary General.

    • Do you need to march in order to discuss your party matters?

      Why not just sit and talk. Why petition your own president, is he refusing?

      And if he is refusing, or not refusing, why inconvenience the public for your internal matters?

      Why should a wife go to police to seek permission to march on the streets to protest or petition the husband to take her for dinner.

      Should they not resolve that internally in their bedroom?

      The UPND way of doing things has continued to be among the top wonders of the world.

    • Where do UPND members buy their weed from? Please help me find that source. I am sure even Sinkamba from greens does not know this source. During the election counting G-String Mushipe had so much evidence. They were given 14 days to present the evidence they used it to smoke some weed and now they want to take their weed to ICC and IJC. They under five and the fat friend should emulate Miles and sober up.

    • The police command claiming the roads belong to the city counsel? Wow. The roads are public property constructed using public funds (People’s taxes). The city counsel has just been given the responsibility to maintain them…using our (taxpayer) money. Either the police command didn’t know what they were talking about, or they’re just out to frustrate UPND. And then about UPND taking the petition to ICC and ICJ, not sure how they intend to pull this one off. ICC and ICJ may be reluctant to take up a case that seems to be exclusively an internal affair of a sovereign nation. I mean, what verdict would they come up with? Force the Zambian ConCourt to hear the petition? I doubt it. I for one would have also wanted justice to prevail, and have strongly condemned PF’s shenanigans in the…

    • (Continued)… election petition saga. Not because I’m a UPND cadre, but because I just wanted to see justice prevail. Some injustice was done, and if you don’t see that, it’s either you’re just perpetually drunk with PF’s imbote, or you’re just plain biased. However, at this juncture, there isn’t much that can be done. For the sake of peace, just let PF rule for the next five years. In the meantime, UPND will need to push for changes that’ll help improve the electoral process, and prevent rigging. One way I suggest is to begin using electronic voting machines. Namibia was the first African country to use electronic voting machines in their 2014 presidential election, and all went well. Initially, the opposition had some reservations, but they were happy in the end, once they…

    • (Continued)… saw how the whole thing works. Developed countries such as USA, and developing countries such as India, Brazil, and the Philippines already use electronic voting. Smartmatic is an expert company, if not the leading company, in electronic voting today. ECZ may want to contact them, and see how they can work with them in the future presidential elections. Not only does electronic voting enable fast vote counting, and results given in a matter of a few hours ( say 2 to 3 hours) instead of days, but it reduces the chances of manipulation, eliminates the need for the printing of ballot papers, and the cumbersome job that comes with their transportation and storage. And no votes can, intentionally or unintentionally, be thrown in a waste basket, as was the case in the last…

    • (Continued)… election. The electronic voting machine can store the results for many years, which makes it easy to recount, if there is need to do that. It also cuts down on the number of staff that you need to run an election, which becomes a huge savings financially. No more suspicions of loads of trucks with pre- printed ballot papers traveling at night to help rig the election. Though this system looks like it’s expensive, in the long run there are far more benefits than drawbacks. And the main benefit is that it reduces the suspicions, finger pointing, accusations, manipulations that are usually associated with ballot paper manual voting.

    • Visungu: that’s so true. Do you need to take over the roads in Lusaka city over the weekend to petition your party to sue your country at a foreign court. These guys are jokers honestly. Can you imagine if any one with a case decides to take over some street before submitting the case to court! Where is UPND heading to? Sort out your internal politics, get a new presidential candidate in place and prepare for 2021. Time is running out exactly the way you wasted your 14 days. Get some life and leave the police to handle more serious issues in the country. Oh that’s the strategy you want use so that HH and GBM come out clean and avoid being arrested for inciting violence. Mwaloba ilyauma. Stop this nonsense please we want to work now. Enough of politics

    • @5 Visungu, in fact they want to carry out a pre-emptive act by taking the case to the ICC so they can be considered as victims rather than perpetrators of ethnic violence. This case cannot be entertained at the ICC because a petition lost in the courts of law for failure to comply with procedures does not constitute a crime – for that matter can never be an international crime. However material found on Martha Mushipe fit an international crime as they are aimed at inciting ethnic violence. The ICC may receive the case for the sake of record and then ask that HH and GBM first respond to a case that was report about them earlier on! They would not want to be abused by these terrible loosers, they have more serious business to worry about!

  3. This is a strange crop of politicians. These UPND souls need serious corrective psychological check ups at Chainama Hospital. Frustration and stress may ruin their health to irreversible lethal levels.

    Walks are worsted energies. There is more and better fruitful investment into agriculture ventures than political “walks”. UPND must be realistic that the sun rises in the morning and sets down in the evening.

  4. MOVE ON……….WHY WASTE TIME AND MONEY?

    Move on, this is not time for petitions, this is time to move on. 50%+1 vote was decided in the ballot box, that is ll it takes to be in government.
    What is it that you are going to petition at ICC and ICJ?
    You failed to present yourselves at the concourt in 14days.
    come on guys lets move on, in 5 years time you will have another chance.
    Stop politicking and start campaigning, M.C Sata MHSRIP, Never stopped campaigning, for ten years he fought till he finally won. you can do it, just work on your weaknesses.
    For now do the checks and balances, M.C made Mwanawasa work through his checks and balances and Zambians begun to love the man they use to hate, that is the spirit we want to see in the UPND camp.

    Other wise, move on, move on, and…

    • Actually it was not decided in the ballot box.

      It was decided by Chuulu and the ECZ through their decision deducting 85,000 votes, which has been publicly admitted by themselves.

      And then a circus in Court.

      If you are too blind to see the facts I feel sorry for you, but then some people are so gullible they will swallow and lie, just make it big enough.

  5. Just send an email to the so called “His Excellency, Hakainde Hichilema” or better still phone him rather than trying to inconvenience other road users in your now boring antics. The ICC and ICJ can also be written to and they will deal with your matter as they see fit. Matching around Lusaka as if you are trying to bring down the walls of Jericho is not the right way to go about it.

Unfortunately for you and the rest of his supporters, the majority of Zambians dont support him, hence his losing a record FIVE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. If you and his supporters want to increase the record to six, you are all very welcome.

My suggestion is that if they are to have any impact as a protesting government in waiting (God knows, how long they will have to wait), they have to demonstrate not on Burma Road which is no even a finished PF dual carriage way ‘complex’, but do their further antics on one of the bad roads they intend to come a fix when they are in power, if they ever do. ICC and ICJ petition is a joke. HH should not expect to win by a slim margin, challengers do not win by small margins, and rightfully they should not. Why is he suddenly His Excellency? He’s a joke!

Just look at Nawakwi – that’s a civilized politician and one who any civilized person will consider a very viable alternative for president. HH started his antagonistic behavious way before August 11 and has known no bounds regarding who he insults for not agreeing with him. If that is what civilization means to you Gabriel and your UPND I’m sure no sane Zambian would want to have anything to do with it!

  22. What the Police has done is the best for the good of their reputation because if they reject it since it lacks merit, they will be called names just like ECZ, High Court, ConCourt. Let HH & GBM approve it themselves because they are the ones who need it. Why can’t they hold a convention or meeting or communicate through post box, e-mail, facsimile, telephone, cellphone, messenger, skype, whatsup, telegram, telex, EMS, DHL courier, newsletters, Personal letters, Billboards, Intranet, Magazines or newspapers, SMS, Social media, PA system, graffiti, rather than blocking roads which are already congested & giving Lucky Mulusa sleepless nights. There are many road users who were subjected to campaign road blockages for months and these can’t continue forever.

Are these UPND zealots aware that the organizations they are seeking sympathy from don’t deal with issues of petitions from political parties? For their own information, the International Court of Justice deals with matters concerning conflicts between states; the International Criminal Court, with those concerning crimes against humanity. So listen you UPND ignoramuses: you are seeking sympathy from wrong organizations. And you call yourself educated!

    • There u go again sengeleti. I was hoping that with the passage time this hallucination that HH won would disappear but it seems I was wrong. Please get it in your thick heard: there was no rigging in this election and the challenges registered here and there, which by the way were more pronounced in Southern province, could not have affected the ultimate outcome significantly. And mark my words, this is the best performance HH will ever produce so you have to thin twice about fielding him in 2021.

  40. PF cadres may scoff at the UPND but be warned that taking the case to the International Criminal Court is a very serious matter. In case you have forgotten, in October 2014, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta became the first sitting head of state to appear before the International Criminal Court, where he faced charges of crimes against humanity after the disputed presidential elections of 2007. He appointed his deputy president to serve as acting President while he attended the hearing at The Hague as a private citizen!! He survived the charges against him only because Kenyan witnesses grew cold feet and refused to testify (obviously they had been intimidated). The Kenyan government also refused to release evidence.
    The point is that ECL may find himself appearing before the…

    • The difference is that no political leader East, West, North or South congratulated Kenyatta for having won the elections. For leaders like the Queen and President Hollande to congratulate Lungu means that their intelligence network must have verified the results. This is why a lot of them waited to hear the decision of the court first before congratulating him..

  43. Mwebantu, HH and GREAT BAG of MAIZE as ‘the applicants to ICC would lack locus standi to seize the Court’s jurisdiction pursuant to Article 12(3) of the Rome Statute.’ The Rome Statute, provides that individuals or organizations may submit information on crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court but surely where is the crime in the issue of the PETITION? In the case of the ICJ: The International Court of Justice has jurisdiction in two types of cases: contentious issues between STATES…Therefore, HH & GREAT BAG of MAIZE do not have LOCUS STANDI or the right to be heard before this court….DULLARDS!

  44. Here in Livingstone people march all the time – even small groups whom we never heard of before. What is the problem with you guys in Lusaka when you even have many more roads as alternative routes?

  45. Petitioning the so called top UPND leadership does not make any sense to me but seen as suspicious move just to take advantage of the situation in order to cause confusion to claim that were attacked by PF in the process.

  46. Honorable Katuka our SG, I think that the path we want to take by having a peaceful walk to His Excellence Hakainde;s home is fine in a country that adheres to its laws and fundamental rights. Not in Zambia. We had nasty experiences during the just ended campaign period with the Police and this time will not be any different. We will be delayed by the Police. I therefore make a suggestion for your consideration that the petitioners ask PRESIDENT Hakainde and VICE PRESIDENT Mwamba to meet them at our National Party offices to present the petition.
    We in the structures are having a lot of questions being asked by our members, to which we have no answers as to what the next move is. We can not depend on the Police or the Council as all these tactics are meant to frustrate us.

  49. They want to cause confusion, they will either stone innocent people’s vehicles or stone the police officers to provoke them. It is the same strategy they used when police denied them a permit to hold a rally in Chawama and Mapenzi was shot dead. UPND are cheating their cadres in SP that President ECL was summoned by Obama to explain how the elections were conducted and how he won. They are not aware of what is happening in USA because they have been told not to watch ZNBC by their leader. These people have been brain washed so deeply that if HH tells them to go and jump in the Victoria Falls to protest the election results, they will gladly do it.

  52. Do not respond to the request positively otherwise you shall be taking yourself for arrest as there is already a case against you having been registered. HH, if you cannot read this game plan, I can tell you that they want you arrested so they can take over leadership of YOUR party. This party that you have for so long put your resources into can only be given up for grabs once you enter in the book of records having been a president of the republic called Zambia. So 7th trial wouldn’t be too much.

  54. So who are likely to be winners after everything else has settled down. GBM might be. Here is why? Despite losing to ECL/Inonge in just ended elections, he still has another opportunity with a bigger and better prize in 2021. It is public knowledge that HH has contributed a lot to the growth of UPND as we know it today. GBM will have ascended to the helm of the party having “paid ” almost nothing. This is strategy at its best. It would have taken probably 20-30 years (without guarantee of success) to reach the same position if GBM had to start from the scratch . Congratulations GBM for your political and business savvy.

  55. Let them just convince GBM and HH to take the case to ICC and ICJ …. then we shall await the outcome .There is absolutely no need to march all the way through burma road disturbing motorists…..this is an internal matter which the UPND can deal with without alarming the nation or indeed disturbing the motorists.they can even arrange for a briefing at there beloved chainama hotel.Just my opinion.
