UPND President Hakainde Hichilema

Opposition UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has moved swiftly to congratulate US President Elect Donald Trump.

Mr Hichilema said Mr Trump’s victory again shows that the American people can rise and show the world that they are great believers in Constitutional democracy and rule of law.

“We want to congratulate the newly elected American President Donald J. Trump and the American people for once again rising and showing the world that they are great believers in Constitutional democracy and rule of law. There are always many lessons to be learnt in the American politics which is that they freely exercise their rights and freedoms to choose their leaders,” Mr Hichilema said.

He said having keenly followed the campaign period and the debates, one can clearly see that all the contenders freely traversed their great nation and marketed themselves unhindered by institutionalised brutality and suppression which is characteristic of most African countries, including Zambia. 

“Even in instances where some American media houses had their own preferences in terms of candidates, they still gave an opportunity and fair coverage to all contesting parties, hence giving citizens the right to choose based on the information they were hearing from all contenders,” he said.

He added, “It is these values and eventual outcome that makes everyone happy because they are based on a free, fair, transparent and credible electoral process whose results show the will of the people. As a leader of the greatest democracy in the world, we hope President-elect Trump will stump his authority and guide emerging democracies, especially in Africa, on the need to respect the rule of law, human rights, and constitutionalism which is key to economic development.”
“Once more and on behalf of our people, party and indeed my own behalf, I say congratulations US President elect Donald Trump.”

  1. HH, be truthful. Almost 90% of the american media were clearly biased towards Clinton. What fair coverage are you talking about??? In some cases, CNN was even worse than our very own ZNBC clearly stating their support for Clinton

    • Not sure he was following, not a single media outlet wanted Trump.

      And someone remind him Trump is not interested in helping lazy countries. Sell the mines for a song and expect America to come and help?

Even their founding father were just the same. Talk about the declaration of independence: i hold these truths to be self evident,all men are created equal meanwhile he is saying “nigger,make me a cup of tea.”Big time fakers. Umusungu temunobe.

    • @Hakainde Mazoka the media having their preference is not an issue here but completely blacklisting the other party that’s where the problem is. Donald Trump was covered by almost all media houses including those that supported Clinton (i hope you were following the campaigns otherwise i might just be wasting my time and energy) which ZNBC never did at any pointing time. Despite being blacklisted HH won the elections but once again state using state machinery including disgruntled chaps like Esau Chulu and Isaacs with the blessings of once a reject but now a messiah in the name of RB manipulated the whole election outcome.

    • Love him or loathe him, he remains the de facto President of Zambia while ECL (‘Edward’) keeps trying force his acceptance on the people by even firing his most ardent supporter/disciple, CK. We know CK’s feathers are exactly like those of ‘Edward’. Long live America to be led by a businessman and Long live Zambia which should be led by HH, a businessman. ‘Edward’ has upset the world order as things are, and he will soon pay a price. President-elect DT and HH need to meet to see a way forward for Zambia. VJ will need to do the diplomatic aspects to have this indaba on the cards. Museveni and his cronies need to be wiped out one way or the other. America sets the pace we all follow simple as!!

      , Zambia is on 6th while America is on 45th president so how do you put the two together? and Mr Hichilema the rule of raw is well respected here if you were to respect it your self things will be different the only problem is you want to be presented like a present when you are not one and i am not so sure if your congratulatory massage matters to trump and America.

    • HH is just a low life tribal privatisation crook/ formerly kafupis chola boy that is slowly going mad as a result of the syphilis he contracted from his days of importing prostitutes from Valentinos when he was a fake monk pa campus! The above statement can be confirmed by any blogger who was a former UNZA student during the period the Hungry Hyena was there. Why would Trump bother reading such rubbish from a delusional mad blood thirsty tribal criminal? Ati business tycoon wa pa Zed fuseki!!! Nonsense!

    • HH has not learnt the full lesson of the outcome of the US elections.

      He has congratulated Trump on his victory, stating that the people of America freely made their choice – correct.

      He, however forgot the lesson taught by Clinton, that when you lose, you concede defeat and congratulate the winner.

      That you don’t become an anarchist and a trouble maker.

      It will be sad if HH will start choosing even lessons the way he made a choice to accept results only if he he won.

      “Even in instances where some American media houses had their own preferences in terms of candidates, they still gave an opportunity and fair coverage to all contesting parties, hence giving citizens the right to choose based on the information they were hearing from all contenders,” he said.

    • HAHAHAHAHA. PF why are you complaining. ECL’s tail is between his legs and trembling right now. Obama shouted at him and now wait for Trump. Chagwa’s buddies Mu7 and MuGabe will bring Lungu down with them. You en-likened Trump to HH hoping he would lose. All three businessmen have not lost this year’s elections: Warren Kizza Besigye Kifefe (Uganda), Hakainde Hichilema (Zambia) and Donald J Trump (USA) won the election. In Uganda and Zambia dictators refused to concede defeat and hang on to power. The new leader of the free world will sort ECL and his partner in crime Mu7 out.

    • Some people shock me. Trump won because there was no electoral interference. Lungu interfered at every stage of the process. Even if a recount was done Trumph would come out winner. If a recount was done on August 12 and all concerns were addressed I doubt Lungu would have proven to the winner of the August elections

TRUMP WAS THE UNLIKELY JUST AS ECL WAS THE UNLIKELY. ALL THE SAME ECL WON AND HE IS HH’s (INCLUDING MYSELF) PRESIDENT. TRUMP HAS WON AND HE IS PRESIDENT OF THE USA- THAT MEANS EVERY RESIDENT OF USA INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON FALL UNDER HIS CONTROL. THAT MEANS IF YOU DON’T LIKE HIM LEAVE TH USA. IF YOU DON’T LIKE ECL, PLEASE, ZAMEFA PRODUCES EVEN COPPER CABLES WHICH HH AND OTHER BITTER AND HATERS CAN USE TO COMMIT SUICIDE. ECL IS OUR PRESIDENT CHOSEN BY ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. HH IS NOT ZAMBIA’S PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN REJECTED BY ZAMBIANS ON MANY TIMES.

There is more rot inside there starting with the campaign money for the 2016 elections.

You are Zambian but you rush to congratulate another country. What hypocrisy! Again it just shows that you are a novice in politics. Of all seating presidents in the world, you are the first opposition president sending congratulations to Trump! These presidents know protocol of how to deliver messages to their colleagues. It’s not by showing off and making noise through the media but through well defined protocol processes. Go and leave in USA

  4. This guy is a joke. Is there anything of value one can learn from this election? This Elections lacked all the bench marks of a Free and Fair Election. Just Because Donald Trump has won the Election does not make the Election Free and Fair. The Fred Mmembe type of Journalism was the order of the day. All the Media were against Trump. He was covered in the negative all the time. Even BBC joined in the crucifixtion of Donald Trump. The media was so biased that most of the things they were saying about Trump were not True. Trump was a portrayed as a Monster. A Sexual Preditor. Talk of Violence. Talk of the useless Opinion Polls. The Muvi Type of Opinion Polls. Mr HH, there is nothing to learn from this Election. What an Inferiority Complex!

    • @Toni Montana….you are useless and a liar….which TV network are you talking about? In fact the opposite is true, the media made Trump become larger than life, he was covered everywhere interviewed more times than Hillary Clinton. His trash talk made him a villain but the democratic right to have his views heard was accorded to him, a far cry from our own stupid democracy. So please stop following the crowd see it for yourself. Don’t just say things because you wanna comment. HH won the elections but was denied victory by your very smart President ECL….you call that democracy???

  5. Clearly, HH hasn’t been following the Trump trail or is it question of birds of the same feather flocking together? Anyhow, HH and Dono share a lot in common: Both sung about rigging the election way before the vote was cast; both belong to camps where women are disrespected, riduculed or abused; both refused to accept the poll outcome unless it favored them; of course, both are rich in their own worlds (arguably dubiously), etc. And both know nothing about rule of Law or procedure: HH’s party constitution offends the republican constitution as regards internal/party democracy; Trump asserted he would quickly have Clinton prosecuted and jailed over a matter the Secretary of state was cleared of blame. Now, someone tell me what rule of law he has seen is the tramp called Trump. Zikomo.

SOME MEDIA HOUSES were spreading HATRED and FALSEHOODS in Zambia – WE DIDN’T NEED TO WAIT TO HAVE ANOTHER r RWANDA ! YES LEARN FROM THE US – Did you hear of any party ELECTION AGENTS BEING CHASED to FACILITATE RIGGING, any HOUSES BURNT and PEOPLE SPEARED for having their “alleged candidate” win?HH, you are an OPPORTUNIST who only looks at ONE SIDE of THINGS,only in YOUR interest and NOT the NATION!!

      A prediction by influential Nigerian TV evangelist TB Joshua that Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election has been removed from the his Facebook account.

      Mr Joshua told his congregation on Sunday that he “saw” a woman winning.

      After Donald Trump convincingly won Tuesday’s vote, visitors to the preacher’s Facebook page noticed the prophecy had been removed.

      The wealthy pastor is known as “the prophet” to his many followers.

      He is one of Nigeria’s best-known and influential evangelists – and is…

  7. I have long said HH lives in a world of his own. He is a bitter and self conceited person the more you know him the better you understand he is lost. Indeed we recognize his personal achievements but he can not manage to rule a country. This is a person at the center of the divisions in our party he is delusional and imagines he rules Zambia. A true leader in both victory and defeat remains on top of things. When has he ever thanked those of us who sacrificed to campaign for him? When has he addressed the party? No he is engrossed in one thing only Plot 1. 2021 zwaaaaa you have failed us! Zambia Forward!

    Africa Live: More on this and other stories

    The US election prediction was broadcast on Mr Joshua’s TV channel Emmanuel TV, which an individual uploaded to YouTube.

    A section of that “prophecy” was posted on the preacher’s Facebook page but is no longer available.

    “Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win… What I frankly saw was a woman,” it said.

  9. TB Joshua has been trending on Twitter across Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa as people shared memes poking fun at his prediction.

    People have also taken to a Facebook entry he posted on Wednesday to complain.

    Clive Mashiri from South Africa asked: “Why was the prophecy deleted? If this was uttered by the man of God, why remove it?”

    Though some have defended him.

    “I will always believe in your prophesies, through thick and thin,” said South African Gugu Mathonsi.

    Many people believe TB Joshua has supernatural powers, which include healing and prophecy.

    Ghana’s late President John Atta Mills said in a speech at TB Joshua’s thanksgiving service after winning an election in 2008 that he had consulted the preacher through his campaign.

  11. I hope the Zambian electoral body learnt something from the US elections. Everyone was given equal opportunity to campaign without anyone being dubiously stopped by cops on instructions from above. Voting took place yesterday and today we already know the winner unlike in Zambia where ECZ fidgets with results before announcing them. No dispute can arise with such a transparent process.

  13. This is why I rarely agree with HH, if he indeed closely followed this campaign period in USA and he still concludes that it was free and fair then HH does not know the meaning of the words “free and fair” almost all the media houses were against trump in very clear manner, they painted him black in everything. So, mr HH, u have no idea of what u are praising. Maybe u should also concede defeat here at home first

Results are carried out in a fair and confident system without any secrets or illegal chaps being found wanting in secure rooms. The results are announced promptly which means that people have confidence in the system. The same cannot be said about the corrupt useless pf government in the just ended zambian elections,

Its almost 3 months after the election and the Petetion still has not been disposed off and yet Edward wants HH and GBM to recognize him. The best way should have been to hear the Petetion,determine it and declare a Winner. Until this is done Edward will remain illegitimate and Donald Trump should deal with Mugabe,Mu7 and Chakolwa. Donald Trump made an undertaking during campaign in the USA to arrest Mugabe and Mu7 as the leading dictators in Africa. These 2 dictators and their Clone Edward Chakolwa should be punished

That petition was time bound and HH failed to prosecute it in 14 days as requited by law. Concourt dispised it, determined it ir whatever wird you wantbto use. The bottom line is that the petition closed when the full bench of the Concourt judges voted to close the matter. Judge President Hilda Chibomba acknowledged the legitimacy of the vote participating freely in it. (Did UPND bribe this judge to participate in the vote? Naybe since UPND knows all the tricks of rugging and bribery..). For the benefit of your thick heads that vote by Chibomba and others is the resdon why HH has been losing subsequent cases in both high court and Concourt. We are waiting for his last loss this…

  36. Finalky my comments on the congrat message by HH to Trump.
    1. To whom was the message delivered by this attention seeking HH?
    2. It is HH who needs to.learn lessons in democracy from Hilary Clinton and not Africans or Zambians. You see, Clinton won the popular vote by 0.2%. She polled 59,598,862 votes (47.7%) against Trump’s 59,380,957 (47.5%). However under the constitution of the USA winning is determined by electoral college rather than popular vote. Hillary has conceded defeat as she respects the constitution and tge rules of the game, she did not “…let’s disregard the constitution and the electoral college system and declare me the winner because I am more popular than Trump”. That is what HH would have said if he was Clinton but fortunately that is USA. What am I saying?…

  37. Contd…What am I saying? Well I am drawing a parallel to HH, he was beaten by a small margin, he petitioned and his petition was constitutionally thrown out mainly due to his lazy and ignorant coterie of lawyers who could only think in tribal rather than legal terms. Clinton has immediately moved on and encouraged younger Americans to take the strughle in future elections. In contrast two months after the ballot in Zambia HH is still crying. No wonder the American Ambassador Eric Shultz mockingly referred to Zambia when he talked about how tight the race was between Trump and Clinton.

  38. The tragedy of HH and UPBD is that unlike other parties that contest and win elections in Zambia, UPND is the only party that has no internal discourse, where members do not want to advise their president, and where the president will not take advice from his members even if they to do so. As a rezult, HH has never won the elections and will never as long as his members look to him as a god who knows it all and can never make a mistake. Doesn’t HH’s five defeats so far prove that HH does not know anything about politics or elections? How can he know anything when he is a perpetual loser? Fortunately for Zambia, UPND will not listen to advice and will maintain the status quo: HH is god, no natter how many elections we lose he is tge only one who knows, the rest of the party members are…

  40. Well said HH. Shame on Chagwa for using the paras as instruments of oppression and suppression of the opposition. And where are the African prophets especially the Nigerian false prophets who prophesied that God told them that Clinton will win. have they recanted from their false prophecies? A paid false prophet comes to Zambia to prophesy Lungu’s victory and gullible Zambian Christians get influenced to think that Lungu is God’s anointed

    • Those ”fake” prophets you are referring to are an equivalent of the skewed opinion polls from the likes of your ”Mubi TV” (as a Lozi man would fail to pronounce ”V”) and your ZWD!

  41. HH likes Trump because he thinks a rich Zambian like him also deserves to be elected president.

  42. Thumbs up Mr Hichilema for recognizing and respecting the new victor of the American presidency. indeed no matter who rallies behind you, it’s only the common people who carry the sole and final decision on who they want to govern them. As for Hillary Clinton, I believe you and us the Zambian people have a lot to learn from that brave , mature and selfless woman and all her supporters, listen to her concession speech and hear the applause in the background. It’s amazing how they all promptly realize it’s time to move forward with the leader for the sake of their nation. With their continued provision of checks and balances Trump might not have a minute to sabotage the economy but grow it even bigger. Will we rule alongside our current president as the opposition Americans for the…

  44. The more I watch HH”s behaviour since his last loss the more I say thank you Lord! Can you imagine his behaviour if he had the instruments of power? Can you imagine him as CIC with army, police airforce at his feet? We would be in trouble no controlling an excited villager in Plot 1. But God said no mr know it all sit

    • Please stop it with your blasphemy. Repent and ask for forgiveness. Lungu and his corrupt / rigged system are the ones who said no to HH BECOMING PRESIDENT. And for the information of all your bloggers gripping about not conceding defeat, that will not happen. HH would have been the first to concede if he had been allowed to campaign freely, allowed his time on the television/ radio including a documentary that he paid for, violence against his supporters,,,,,, the list is just too long

  45. Grow up underfive boy, this is not America where you can roam freely and carry guns at will. Even you HH know and accept that this is not America. To illustrate my point, did you see those secret service agents who scrambled to protect Trump when there was a perceived threat? You HH would never accept state secret service agents to protect you during your campaigns, you would instead suspect thati the government wants to eliminate you, as if it is that difficult to do so if indeed they wanted to kill you or if anyone thought a fly like you was worth a bullet.
    The point I am making is that we may not be America but in Zambia we do change governments when the people say so. And the world has acknowledged that and entered Zambia in the African Guinness Book of Records. Remember that we have…

  47. Trump is not President of Zambia but America only. So why should he stump his authority on African states and Zambia in particular? All countries are independent and people choose their leaders. Americas democracy matured over time and so will ours and the rest of Africa. Please also learn from what Clinton did. Because she respects the constitution and believes in peaceful transition of power, she conceded defeat and asked her supporters to give Trump a chance to lead. It is now up to Trump to do the right thing or make all the mistakes he can make.

  49. Ba HH badaala, we draw a line to everything, and we can only take so much from you. Where on earth can an election winner be declared by one person and his party the losers? Every other person, institution, monitors and governments from America, Africa, UK, everywhere in the world, courts of law and even courts of tennis have declared HH the loser and accepted the results of the elections. In UPND now they dont even talk about the election results, they talk about hearing the petition beyond 14 days – a non existent provision in.our constitution. And at tge same time they ralk about following the constitution. Donkey blood is a curse…hiho hiho hiho hiho hiho

  50. You are busy congratulating President trump and yet you don’t even have your own and you are not your own and how are expecting Trump to recognize you? Recognize you without a country or a country with no president? HH can not run a country ladies and gentlemen. May be he wants to be recognized for being a Tonga.

  52. Just pray that Donald Trump and his best friend PUTIN don’t start WORLD WAR THREE.. Zambia can learn one or two things about Hillary’s acceptance of results and DEFEAT. 1st world behaviour verses 3rd World (ZAMBIAN) Logical thinking. What a GAP…..

  54. Poverty is a curse, even one’s thinking becomes poor, its not a good thing you pipo, you need one with sober mind like HH to bring you out of poverty. You cant even understand what he has said in his congratulatory message, and unfortunately the poor in thinking are the one who have time to waste insulting someone with rich mind, rich health, rich with wisdom all about him is rich sober guy.

  56. It seems that for some people “Free and fair” means media houses supporting everything you utter. In a democracy the media and civil society can castigate you as much as they want but they will still allow you to be heard.
    That’s what it was with Trump. Media houses civil society and the world over castigated him but still allowed him to be heard. That is what democracy is.

  59. Its like HH was not following 2016 USA campaigns!!99% media in USA were pro Hillary Clinton and almost all were shocked after seeing D.Trump win!!plus HH must know that Zambian or african elections are not anywhere near American standard.here politicians like him campaign on tribal lines.today Zambia is very divided.in 2021 if HH stands,expect his upnd to win in bantustan areas and lose elsewhere!!so with or without free media,hh could have still lost because voters in 6 and half provinces could have rejected him.winning in 3 and half provinces cannot make hh win the presidency!!

  60. TRUMP WILL ACTUALLY TRASH SUCH CONGRATULATIONS AS COMING FROM AN AFRICAN BEGGAR SOLICITING FOR HELP AS USUAL. I WONDER IF SUCH CONGRATULATIONS CAN EVEN REACH TRUMP’S DOOR STEP. HIS OFFICIALS WILL JUST THROW IT IN THE BIN. “THROWN OUT”. REMEMBER THOSE WORDS?
