  1. Benangu bapeleka bakapokola ku ba lozi, a ceremony were people should be merry and have fun, thanks HH and GBM. You are welcome.

  2. HH & GBM are men of courage and substance. We salute them and hope Lungu and his Criminals will not harm them. Just like Lungu the two brave sons of Zambia were invited to the Ceremony. Who is Kennedy Kamba to threaten a Blood Bath at the Ceremony? Lungu better rain in his PF thugs otherwise we will have a Civil War in Zambia. The writing is on the Wall.

    • Mr. Chibwe don’t follow a lost person, unless you also want to be lost too. Kamba is lost. So don’t say WE will have civil war. Say you and Kamba will fight for best reasons known to yourselves. My dear wife is Lozi and am Mambwe and there are many others in similar situation who can not support your civil war between you and Kamba. You only hear about civil war but you have not seen it. All these politicians who are making us utter all these hate speeches will not be their to witness the civil war you’re talking about. In all the areas where there is civil war the centre stage leaders and thier families are out side those areas or countries. Its no secret HH and GBM have mansions out side Zambia. Even ECL can run to friendly presidents with his family. What about you and me? We will…

  3. DO not guarantee his safety or life please. I am talking to you Zambia police.

    Anything happens to him, its fine by a lot of us

    Thanks

    • Mushota, i realy can’t believe you have such a tremendous hatred in your heart against UPND in general and HH in particular. You seem to be suffering from brain constipation and thinking fatigue ever since you started supporting PF as one of it’s many minions and gullible cadres. I hope you are enjoying their directionless ride on the boat. No wonder, you seem so lost on that sea where your boat is sailing to nowhere………………………

  4. It will be interesting to have the two (HH and ECL) at the same ceremony. Will HH be part of the VIPs? He enjoys tremendous support in the province and so let’s see what happens.

  5. It’s a free country and the whole world knows who is the Republican President. The men in uniform will salute him, ECL. GBM and HH are mere spectators. There presence will not change the fact that they lost the election. Until 2021, GBM and HH are merely opposition leaders. There nothing exciting about there presence.

  6. Of course HH and GBM are wishing for ECL embarrassment but thank God nothing will change the fact that ECL is the President of Zambia

    • YOU ARE RIGHT MUYUNDA.
      ANY RIGHT THINK PERSON WILL SUPPORT.
      THESE TWO ARE TERRORISTS.
      VERY SOON THE LAW WILL VISIT THEM.
      HH WILL NEVER RULE THIS COUNTRY.
      HE THINKS THE 3.5 PROVINCES WILL TAKE HIM TO STATE HOUSE.
      HE LOST IN THE C/B AND LUSAKA URBAN.ANY SERIOUS OPPOSITION LEADER SHOULD HAVE SAT DOWN AND REFLECT AS TO WHY HIS PARTY FOR THE PAST 5 ELECTIONS HAS BEEN LOOSING IN URBAN TOWNS AND ONLY WINNING IN DUNDUMWEZI.
      HIS BITTERNESS WILL KILL HIM ONE DAY.IF HE WON’T CHANGE IS APPROACH,LET HIM FORGET ABOUT 2021.
      ZAMBIANS ARE NOT FOOLS AND THEIR VOTING PATTERN IS THE CAUSE AS TO WHY THEY WILL KEEP ON LOOSING THE FUTURE ELECTIONS.UPND WAKE FROM YOUR SLUMBER.2021 AGAIN YOU ARE LOOSING CLEAN

  7. Chibwe it’s not courage they are Zambian Citizens, you too as son of the soil its your obligation if you have enough Kwacha to attend don’t bring politics here. They know who the President is period. It’s you who draws the line my friind. As you read the time President is giving speech HH & Chidumbo Maliketi “also disclosed that will afterwards inspect some of the developmental projects in the education and health sectors which he has been implementing in his individual capacity”

    • @10 MwanambinyiMbulangambwaMbonabi

      I understood Chibwe to be referring to their agility, their resilience in the struggle they have been engaged in; the trip to Barotseland being only a part of a continuation of the demonstration of that. They have not been silenced, they are yet to be, probably never to be. They have made their voice hear. They still continue to. That’s courage. That’s persistence. That’s the substance real men are made out of.

    • The behaviour of HH and GBM is only an attempt to salvage the little that is left of them as politicians. They were beaten. ECL still remains and will remain the President. To the rest of the nation apart from the 3 provinces, they are a done deal, a nonentity. Come 2021, they will still be beaten if they continue with this attitude. HH does not learn, he was advised years ago to change his attitude, but he did not and now he wants to blame other for his misdoings. By going to the Kuomboka does not stop ECL from becoming Zambian President, even if they are liked there. Zambia is a unitary state with one government, It is not a federation, where HH can claim be Governor of any part pf the country.

      These guys have gone truly crazy. ECL will have red carpet and they will be mere…

  8. HH and GBM are lunatics to say the least.
    Just because Zambia does not want to behave like other African states where these two could have been sorted out does not mean that the President is weak. But days are numbered for these two. We shall give them an enough rope to hang themselves. How can they be so rogue like rabied dogs?

  9. Lets face it here.yes HH won in western,southern and n/western in 2016 and will do so in 2021 WHILE ECL’S PF WON IN 6.5 PROVINCES AND WILL 100% WIN AGAIN IN 2021.SO WHAT WILL HH GAIN BY WINNING IN 3.5 PROVINCES ONCE MORE IN 2021?NOTHING AS HE WILL STILL REMAIN IN OPPOSITION FOR ANOTHER 5 YRS!!!then at Kuomboka ceremony,HH&GBM will simply be mere spectators like any other villagers AS ECL WILL BE GIVING GOVNT’S OFFICIAL SPEECH!!!kikikikiki at while in western HH will inspect some projects he is doing there,which projects?INDEED EDITH NAWAKWI WAS RIGHT WHEN SHE SAID THAT HH BEHAVES AS IF HE IS A HEAD OF STATE.BO HH YOU’RE A MERE OPPOSITION LEADER LIKE MULYOKELA,COSMO MUMBA,ETC!!!Wynter Kabinda today confirmed that no court will ever hand over the presidency to HH.only majority voters can…

    • @12 Njimbu

      Irrelevant regurgitation. It’s the manipulation of the outcome of the election that has been the subject matter – the continuing issue of concern. It’s what we should be talking about.

    • NJIMBU,
      UPND ARE REALLY A PROBLEM.
      WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS TRUE.
      AS HH CONTINUES ON THIS PATH,COME 2021,HE WILL CRY AGAIN.
      WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN HOW EASTERNERS AND NORTHERNERS WERE BUTCHERED IN NAMWALA AND MONZE.
      HH HAS NEVER APPOLOGISED FOR WHAT HIS TRIBE MEN DID.DON’T THINK THEY ARE HAPPY AND THEY WILL SPEAK THROUGH THE BALLOT BOX.
      UPND WILL ONLY WIN IN 3.5 PROVINCES AND PF WILL IN 6.5 PROVINCES AND PF WILL TEACH THEIR SUPPORTERS TO VOTE LIKE IN DUNDUMWEZI.
      WHERE IS HE GOING TO GET THE VOTES FROM.
      BY NOW HH SHOULD HAVE BEEN THINKING AS TO WHY HIS PARTY LOOSES IN COPPER BELT AND LUSAKA URBAN RATHER THAN WASTING HIS TIME ON INSULTING LUNGU AND HIS SUPPORTERS.
      TO ME KABIMBA IS EVEN MORE MATURE POLITICALLY THAN HH.HE IS A GOOD ORGANIZER AND UPND CAN HIRE HIM AND HE WILL HELP THEM.

    • Mr. Njimbu in fact we should be talking about all the contentious clauses in the Supreme Law of the Land. Why? Because it was the reason why UPND’s petition failed to take off, although, had the learned lawyers put two or three typical facts and figures on the table could have won UPND credit from the bench and citizens.

  10. The main mission for HH is go there and cause mayhem for that is what he cherishes. Yes to see some innocent people loose lives and push the blame on PF and our hard working police officers. He is lying that he is going to inspect developmental projects in western province. Where? He just wants to surreptitiously campaign in that pretext. We know he wants to organize inncent youths to cause confusion and kill some innocent people and blame on human rights abuse in Zambia. The president will be in the area, why go there as an opposition leader, and when Police block you start crying foul and in the process cause confusion and violence. You are blood thirsty fellow together with your hoodlum friend GBM.You blood lusty brutes

  11. Red carpet ready for the President of Zambia ECL ,young boys the big man is coming. Careful don’t misbehave the cops are 600 in number and we command respect.

    • @14 Bemba man

      Men, if they are truly “big”, are never arrogant. Sadly you seem to imply that our president is arrogant. He is not. Please apologize.

  12. Haa developmental projects in Western Province being undertaken by pumpkin head? My foot! Where? Unless he says he wants to see if he can acquire some land for his cattle, yes! This guy is getting senile by each day that passes!

  13. Every politician and every party cadre who will be at the kuomboka should know that they will be there ONLY for the ceremony. It is not a political event. So keep the peace

  14. Let the truth be told, as much i like the stories that LT presents, its the bloggers’s responses which causes me to come here. @MUSHOTA YOU ARE AS MAD AS HELL. I sometimes log in just to read your responses. YOU ARE A CRAZY, SMART, FEARLESS WOMAN OR IS IT MAN. THOUGH SOMETIMES YOU CAN BE VERY NASTY.BUT I LIKE YOU AS A PERSON. AND DON’T ASSUME THINGS. AM A WOMAN TOO. AND NOT AM GAY.

    • @17 Kachana Banda

      Yes, that’s the cake we all enjoy, not the articles, which most of the time, are distasteful. Yes, too, Mushota is evergreen – never high up in heaven, and never down below in hell, though you say she is “as mad as hell.” I would say, she is as crazy as she is clever.

  15. I hope these two will not mobilise their cadres for more blood shed. I now understand why the government had to send 500 police officers there. Some people always move with dark cloud over them so that they can condemn others. This is a wonderful ceremony which is enjoyed by everyone including our kids. These power hungry selfish politicians are making our country so dangerous. Please look after the kids carefully. These two guys cannot be trusted anymore.

    • @19 Advisor

      Ugly rhetoric, not befitting the mood of a colorful Kuomboka ceremony. Is politics all that there is to life? Shouldn’t we entitle ourselves with something better, at least for a single weekend?

  16. PF Bloggers pse note that Lungu is an illegitimate President until a Court declares a Winner of the 2016 Election. Lungu is feeling the pressures of stealing elections and the consequences of Illegitimacy . The stigma of being called a Vote Thief whereever he goes is haunting him. The idea of going to a place where u know they don’t like u as a Vote Thief is not a good feeling. The Hearing of the Petition will free Lungu and his fellow Criminals.

    • Moyo, what do you mean illigitimate? There was an inuaguaration ceremnoy attended by international Presidents and dignitaries who witnessed. Where were you? That event legitimised his Presidency and nothing can undo. HH is complaining of not being heard when he he was given a 14 days opportunity to be heard and he failed. So whom do want to blame? Blame HH and his lawyers for letting you down. If you fart, accept it and do not blame others. If you re given an exam, yo do not study, and fail, why blame the examiner. learn to blame yourselves. You donated money to your fake lawyers.

  17. Mr HH you will be talking to some chiefs in western? But as long as you don’t talk to the government nothing changes for the Chiefs….and the Chiefs know that do they will advise you to be sensible….and stop being a donkey……
    Cry my baby!

  18. @20 Moro, it’s the ECZ which declares the winner not the courts and then the Chief Justice swear in the President. Both requirements have been met so we do have a President. The tribe ofvthe ECZ Commissioner and chief justice is immaterial….Donkeys!

  19. UPND supporters, you must do a reality check. The UPND Vice President is a wife battler. The UPND President is a lier. The story about Trump is a lie.He promised the nation if he won the Presidency, he would bring back Anglo American – it is a lie. Anglo is busy unbundling, and have no interest in Copper or cobalt – AA burnt their fingers in Chile.
    It will be in the interest of Zambia if a credible opposition was in place who would both be a “Government in waiting” as well as providing alternative but better policies to the PF Government. The PF Government should not go beyond the next General Elections but the alternatives are scary. Let UPND build a support base because their policies are sound not because they can insult, or continue to cry over the perceived “stolen” elections…

  20. …..(contnued)
    Those two fellows in the picture GBM and HH do not and cannot pass the Leadership test. In the interest of the nation, get rid of them and let credible leaders run with UPND – maybe you might win the elections. As it is now, UPND is not worthy talking about.

  21. We are in mongu right now. My range rover managed to pull through. Powerful machine

    • I wish a nice stay and enjoy the ceremony. Please stay away from trouble. Do not be used by selfish people, remember, they have their own families and yours will be waiting for you when the even is over. If something bad happens to you, these guys will on say sorry for a minute and forget you ever existed shortly after that. I will try to meet you and greet you briefly. See you tomorrow.

      Do not abuse that Range Rover, It need to take you back safely.

    • Asigai we thank you. Are you in mongu as well. Ah the atmosphere my brother is one of peace and one Zambia. My brother please come through to our camp and let us have a drink or two. Politics aside

    • I would love to meet and enjoy that with you, in a neutral place outside politics. Peace and love my brother, enjoy this wonderful day. One Zambia,One Nation, One People.

  22. @Chali:what you said is the gospel truth about upnd.HH&GBM are unvotable by majority Zambians.in 2021 many would like to remove PF from power and let others rule.but which opposition leader can we vote for in 2021?HH?my foot.i would rather stay home and not vote than voting for HH and GBM!!!but since many of us in 6.5 provinces have no option,we shall still vote for whoever will be adopted by PF in 2021-simple because PF is far much better than HH’s upnd!!SURELY HOW MANY TIMES WILL UPND UNDER HH LOSE FOR THEM TO REALISE THAT HH CANT WIN THEM THE PRESIDENCY?FIVE TIMES ARE MANY ENOUGH FOR UPND TO REMOVE HH FROM THE TOP!!but since upnd is arrogant-they will go into 2021 elections with HH(a known loser) and expect to win.how?only themselves know!!ANOTHER RIGGING SONG WILL BE SUNG BY UPND…

  23. I just learnt that the boat on which the Litunga takes his good ride every so often whenever the province receives favourable rains contributed to the PF founder President (michael Sata) to think of a boat as his party’s symbol. Of-course the other one is Noah’s ark.

  24. Truth be told,
    these traditional ceremonies are meaningless in modern society and to modern living. Think of it this way:
    1. What will that Barotseland common man gain from this over-valued ceremony apart from having his unsuspecting daughters being feasted on by vaultures from Lusaka and beyond;
    2. What will the old folk from Limulunga and Lealui gain from this ceremony apart from watching stupidly the Litunga emerge from his royal barge elegantly dressed like an old Scottish King for some empty ending?
    3. Will the ceremony translate into increased GDP for Barotseland?
    4. What will that little boy gain from all this exaggerated attachment of people to a boat on the water and those shirtless paddlers. And I was being told that it is an honour to be a paddler. My foot.

    When are we…

  25. There was stampede at OYDC HH was there spreading news everywhere like a FALSE prophet, now that his CADRES killed someone, he’s very MUTE as if nothing happened or as if he’s out of the country, WHAT A HYPOCRITE WE HAVE TO BE OUR LEADER. MY FRIEND U HAVE NO VOTE FROM ME coz u dont deserve it.

  26. Honestly the resemblence is strong with a hyena no wonder some bloggers refer to him as human hyena (HH)
