HH speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka on Sunday

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says he will not give up on his presidential petition no matter how many times the courts adjourn the matter.

Mr. Hichilema says he is aware that the recent court adjournments on the right to be heard matter is aimed at frustrating him but that he will not give up.

And Mr Hichilema has attributed his not letting go of the presidential petition and court processes to setting a precedence that Zambia must begin holding free, fair and credible elections.

He however says there is unprecedented interference on the judiciary by the PF charging that even that will not stop him from continuing with the legal fight.

Meanwhile the UPND President has praised his Members of Parliament for boycotting the State of the Nation address by President Edgar Lungu on Friday last week.

Mr. Hichilema says there is no way the UPND MPs would have gone to parliament to listen to what he termed as an “empty” speech by President Lungu coupled with political songs.

And on the Chilanga UPND MP Keith Mukata, the UPND President said Mr Mukata’s actions did not represent the interest of the people who voted for him in Chilanga who are being detained by the PF.

He says Mr Mukata’s action clearly shows that he is only interested in himself and not the people, and the party adding that in due course the nation will be informed of what actions will be taken against him.

Speaking to Journalists in Lusaka this afternoon, Mr Hichilema said there is no way the UPND MPs would join in fostering illegalities by listening to someone whose election is being challenged in the courts of law.

And the UPND President has said that Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini must step aside for someone who is more professional.

Mr Hichilema said the Speaker has failed to show leadership in Parliament especially after allowing PF MPs to sing political songs immediately President Lungu stepped into Parliament.

The UPND President says Speaker Matibini must show cause as to why he should not step aside when he has been supporting PF’s failures both in parliament and across the country.

He added that the speaker of the National Assembly along with President Lungu must apologize for subjecting Zambians to such a lowly national address but also unparliamentarily language used by PF MPs.

      I see nothing but evil here. This man has risen in ranks to become wealthy not by hard work, but by the sacrifice of so many people’s lives. He may have even been behind the death of Mazoka. Who knows? He has no one else’s interests to serve but his own and if the government does not arrest and charge him with treason, he will burn Zambia and run away with his money. It is time all well meaning Zambians smelt the coffee. There have been many innocent Zambians incarcerated for treason on no evidence at all but here is a man who is flagrantly treasonous and walking scot free.

      Me Too: honestly you can’t the nonsense in this message. You want the Speaker to resign when you did not attend parliament. When you boycott parliament don’t comment on parliamentary business because already it’s none of your business. This kind of thinking is making HH very unpopular and back wards. All he should have done was to justify why his MPs boycotted and never talk about what happened inside parliament. That’s the maturity I was expecting from him. It’s like you refuse to attend classes but you want to learn what your friends were taught. That’s very lame and hypocritical.

      Wisdom is knowing what to do when end results are known. Even if this f00l HH does not give, there is NO Court under the Sun which will hear any petition. It is closed and dusted. So it is luck of wisdom or f00lishness to continue chasing a fruitless course or chasing the wind which you know you cant catch. Its closer to madness. LIERS will never enter the Kingdom of God. HH and his minions keep lying that he will be installed as President and that SADC summoned ECL for questioning and that the commonwealth grilled the Chief Justice and all sorts of satanic lies. No wonder he is viewed as a Satanist he enjoys lies and even bullying his own a.ss.

However, this tribal problem is baby of a Tonga H, who is trying lure other innocent tribes into this Tonga people frenzy. When HH was not on the political scene, we did not have this problem. HH started all by allowing to appointed as UPND President simply because he was Tonga. When he was confronted with this truth, he started the false of claiming that it is an attack on the Tongas. This was a false premise, unfortunately he seems to have succeeded in hiding the truth or genesis of all this tribal talk. Why do you think he has failed or is refusing to hold a UPND convention?

      In an effort to steal votes, HH accused Maureen Mwanawasa of finding his votes in a bin.

      The idea was to claim that the said votes allegedly found in a bin by Maureen Mwanawasa were stolen by ECL.

      Now, please note that Maureen Mwanawasa denied the allegations made by HH, of finding his votes in a bin.

      Maureen Mwanawasa went further and warned HH not to involve her in falsehood.

      So who was the real thief, the one who wanted to steal and failed because Maureen Mwanawasa did not want to be part of his fraud, or the one they wanted to steal votes from but failed?

The choice to stay was done before the day the President was to address Parliament.

    HH is Right.He is looking at the bigger picture.HH is demonstrating to Lungu that u cannot steal an Election with impunity and expect to get away with it. Violence begets violence. ZPS killed Mapenzi Chibalo in cold blood last year and ZPS has now killed a ZAF Officer in a Police Station. If we allow Election Riggers to get away with stealing Elections in 2016 we might as well consider the 2021 Election rigged. The time to clean house is now. The ECZ, Concourt,ZPS and other Electoral Institutions must be reformed and personnel changed. Those who stole the 2016 Elections must be held accountable. The Chulus,Isaacs, KZ,RB etc must pay the price for rigging the 2016 Elections.HH is Right .We must create a precedent in managing elections properly in future. Officials managing elections must…

HH and UPND with their lawyers have failed to prove this fact. All we hear is verbatim after another. The fact is that you and your HH know very well that you lost the elections clean. No amount of crying foul will change anything and no will be made to pay for doing no wrong. The country is quite apart from HH. You think when HH speak, the people in the 7 provinces that rejected him care? No. It is only in Southern Province. In he 7 provinces it is business as usual. HH will be taught another lesson if attempts to stand in 2021. The 7 provinces will use the Southern province voting pattern and give zero votes this time. It will even be…

All these people and organisation cannot be wrong and only HH right. It only shows you that HH is a king of lies. All this is a fake way by HH to cheat you that there is something to salvage from the devastating lose, but alas, HH and UPND are only cheating themselves, there is nothing to salvage.

That is the hardest thing for HH to achieve and he will never succeed because he has no proof. HH is only using this petition thing as platform to speak and do his politicking. He has lost all direction how else to lead UPND. There is nothing we are hearing from HH apart from the petition. Are you going to be talking about this only until 2021?

You are all so sure that Lungu didn’t steal, although I have reason to believe Lungu stole that election. He is a thief as historical evidence indicates.

    He is now commenting about the same Parliament he does not recognise. If he thinks the elections were not credible he should remove all his MPs from Parliament forever in protest because sitting there, they still debate issues brought out by the President (ECL). In another way, they still recognise him. Even if they do not want to physically listen to his address, they debate his address, so what are they achieving? Zero my friend.

    The Chilanga MP is a chancer,nimuselela kwakaba.A few months before the elections last year he foresaw that the PF was definitely going to lose in his constituency, so he quickly shifted camp to the other side where he was easily adopted and he scooped the seat again. So now, his decision not to boycott the President’s address to Parliament contrary to ‘his party’s’ expectation simply shows he’s crawling back into the ruling party. Both HH and Edgar should be careful with such people.

    To borrow from Zulu above ….

    ” Our Amended Constitution is very clear. Once a Presidential Petition is filed in Concourt there cannot be inauguration of the President Elect becoz ECZ’s declaration of a Winner is Nullified. For inauguration to take place a New Declaration of the Winner by Concourt is REQUIRED. Lungu went aheard and illegally inaugurated himself in power and used Clerk of Court for swearing in process instead of the Chief Justice or his Deputy as per Law.Lungu blocked the Petition Hearing, refused to handover power to the Speaker of Parliament as per Law…”.

      Not nuliffied, SUSPENDED !! Until the same court is satisfied by the evidence presented by the petitioners. But as we were shown, the petitioners and their lawyers FAILED to convince the court. Not a single shred of evidence was presented only technicalities like having the court take hold of the disputed ballots and so on and so forth…Problem is you wanted the Law according to you not the Constitution. Those greedy lawyers knew the petition is going nowhere without hard evidence. HH has been losing elections since 2006 mind you!!

      President Lungu as president-elect had no power to block the hearing. Then power is only handed to the speaker if there is a vacuum. If Concourt is not convinced with the petitioners’ evidence, they uphold what the constitutionally mandated ECZ declared. Hence President Lungu being inaugurated.

      That is if you have a serious petition,

      Note child’s play where the owner runs away from his petition with the view to expire it.

      And indeed he expired it?

      So to answer your question – food once bought needs to be eaten but when it expires they don’t eat it anymore. It is as good as not having bought it.

      In short when your food expires you are as good as one who never bought any. It is thrown away.

      You don’t stick to expired good saying come what may, I will never give up. That is how you can judge someone’s level of thinking.

    The UPND and their lawyers are extremely incompetent.

    UPND and their lawyers lack understanding of basic law.

    The constitution in article 279 states as follows:

    (b)if the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday (“excluded day”), the period shall include the next day;

    (c) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken on a specified day and that day is an excluded day, the act or proceeding shall be considered as done or taken in due time if it is done or taken the
    next day; and

    (d) where an act or a proceeding is directed or allowed to be done or taken within a time not exceeding six days, an excluded day shall not be counted in the computation of
    the time.

      vote

      Now, anyone who does not understand this basic article cannot defend a case.

      The commencement of the case was on Friday when the petition was filed because the filing-in day was not an excluded day.

      Where the timeframe does not exceed 6 days, the excluded days are not counted in the computation of time.

      Otherwise the excluded day form part of the count – and in the case of the expired petition 14 days is clearly more than 6 days – thus all the excluded days ( weekends and holidays) were countable.

    let’s have concrete evidence that shows a table of results showing columns for both HH and ECL like the following

    Constituency, ECZ Figures, Actual Figures, Discrepancy

    and then totals at the bottom which shows that HH won the election.

    This does not need court hearings and if he can show this even on this forum, a lot of people, including me, will believe and follow him. Otherwise let him forever shut up and stop wasting our time!

      Let us imagine we put HH as president now, then ECL becomes opposition leader, will HH ever address parliament because he will have very few MPs attending his address. ECL will also behave the same by not allowing his MPs from the strongholds of PF not to attend. Put it simply, HH has not enough numbers in parliament and that can be very easy for him to be impeached. Please UPND and other HH sympathizers please look at that on a broader picture and remember we need to develop this Country Zambia than to be known as a country that always spends colossal sums of money on by-elections.

    @chipasha,

    The Lundazi issue did happen that at the announcement the numbers where truly transposed.
    However, the Totals where correct despite that. So it doesn’t change anything. You can replay the videos and check the totals which I did several times.

    The Chavula guy issue is also a mystery, you need to show proof that he changed the results in favour of ECL. Even the courts will need that kind of proof that indeed the activities of Chavula, Lundazi issue, Gen12 forms DID HELP ALTER the elsection results in favour of ECL. In the absence of that proof, I am afraid ECL will be president until 2021. It seem that evidence is not there!

    So both items did not alter r influence the results of the elections. Period. And you cant prove who sent Chavula there. It…

    I wonder how he knew the speech was ’empty’ before he heard it!

    I am just curious, are members of Parliament expected to debate the President’s speech? If this is the case, are the UPND members supposed to contribute to the debate? Or are they supposed to boycott the entire session that will be dedicated to debating the speech? Or are they going to be allowed to apologise again like they did last time? For me, I take it that once the President has addressed Parliament, there is a period when MPs dedicate their time to debating the speech. But are these UPND MPs going to debate the speech which is ’empty’, according to their leader?
