The two motorcades-President Lungu's and HH's motorcade 'clash' in Mongu on Saturday
The two motorcades-President Lungu’s and HH’s motorcade ‘clash’ in Mongu on Saturday

Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja says police officers acted in a responsible way by overtaking UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s motorcade to avoid loss of life in Mongu on Saturday.

And State House Spokesman Amos Chanda has condemned Mr Hichilema’s conduct describing it as foolish.

President Edgar Lungu’s motorcade and Mr Hichilema’s almost clashed as they headed to Lealui for the Kuomboka ceremony.

But Mr Kakoma said the officers acted in a reasonable way by overtaking Mr. Hichilema’s motorcade to avoid loss of life.

He however warned that the Zambia Police is not going to sit and watch such lawlessness in the country.

“If what is portrayed in the Picture circulating on social media concerning the motorcade of Hakainde Hichilema is a reflection of what truly happened, then it is very unfortunate because such actions of failing to give way to a Presidential motorcade are tantamount to obstruction of road way as well as endangering the life of the President,” Mr Kakoma said.

“However, I am still waiting for a full report on what transpired from officers who were on the ground and appropriate action will be taken in accordance with the State Security Act and other relevant pieces of Legislation,” he said.

But President Lungu’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda said Mr Hichilema and his Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba acted foolishly.

“Route lining was done. HH passed major check points in good time but slowed down so Eagle One can find him on the way which happened. We had two options: to slow down and allow him to reach Limulunga or to bump him off and create some scene of sorts which is what he wanted,” Mr Chanda said.

He added, “A decision was made to bypass him and in our mind we were clear no danger was posed to HE unless HH himself would ram his car into Eagle One. A split second decision would be made to prevent that cause at that stage any movable object in motion or stationery is constantly on target from some close range, which is why it was spectacularly foolish for HH and his minders to place themselves into that real and eminent danger!”

He said, “Secondly, as per established security and protocol orders, a decision to bump off all strange objects was made but a quick consultation upwards resulted into a different option which was undertaken.”

“Thirdly, as the result something happened that made HH and GBM and their entourage to remain outside the arena some 500 meters away instead of being in the VVIP shelter some 5 metres away from where the Litunga was disembarking from the royal barge! From the Harbour, that foolishness cost them the vantage point cause as soon as guest of honour passed royal and state protocol did not allow anyone to pass.”

Mr Chanda further said, “As a result, two men hobbled away in shame even before the king could rise to enter his summer palace. As I write today a royal banquet is taking place and the two men left for Lusaka two hours ago, their seats empty notwithstanding the cows and mealie meal they donated!

Mr Chanda said, “if there is such a successful cooperation between security and PR since I got into State House this was one of them. We decided to neutralize it as minor incident and leave the Kuomboka intact after such a long time of its absence. Moreover, there is something we are seeing here politically which we cannot waste away in a foolish Hakainde stunt.”

    • The police made the right call. HH and Lungu should not be mentioned in the same sentence.

      How many times has HH contested and failed ? What is the definition of a failed politician? Where is there not a convention in UPND? What is HH’ political source of income and if he is using his own money – is this legal ?

      These are the question and UPND will avoid answering.

      Thanks

    • kikiki bane i was there myself with our president HH. As the illegal president was approaching we decided to slow down and give him way to overtake with his 600 police officers. reason we did this is because we had thousands of supporters slowing us down as the legitimate president HH interacted with our people. Lungu had no reason to slow down because there was no one there for him apart from the 600 police officers he paid to travel with him from lusaka. It was very embarrasing for a head of state been booed. Lungu needs to listen to the people and let the petition be heard in a fair and free way. His presidency will remain illegal till this is done. As for ndanje we musula wambwa how can HH be a fly when your lungu was as insignificant as a little dot at the kuomboka? why did he waste…

    • What has become of this once so happy and loving country?

      We used to be able to hold divergent views and even disagree with each other but on occasions like the one in Mongu we would all be one happy family.

      2011 then challenger M.C. Sata’s entourage and that of the sitting president R. Banda crossed on the copperbelt. They disembark from their buses and hug and share pleasantries only to resume denouncing each other at their next rallies.

    • Lungu should have hide behind HH convoy, because UPND support was overwhelming.
      Otherwise I find it wise to overtake the HH crowd, to go ahead in a clear road for PF. Nkwazi did wise move.

    • I see Lungu competing with HH by trying to overtake him and I don’t see why he should if he thinks he’s the rightful president. In this scheme of things Lungu reduces himself to competeing with a citizen of the country he claims to be president of. If this kama Lungu does not accept himself as a president (at least with a small letter ‘p’) does he expect to be accepted as The President on Zambia? If he behaves like this who does he reckon will accept him? pathetic.

    • So HH did not pull off the road despite the police becons being on. That was enough action to warant the aresting of the driver.
      In Germany if you ignore blue or red beacon they withdraw your driving licence for good. You also face heavy penalties.

    • I don’t think that acting like a child can improve anybody’s chances of getting to State House.

      Someone is slowly turning himself into a laughing stock.

      HH should not think that the few people who make noise around him will make him win 2021 elections.

      Instead, many people have lost confidence in his leadership.

      It is enough that he has led UPND for more than 10 years. That is all he will achieve. Not State House.

      ECL is recognised as the legitimate president of Zambia and not some under 5 political pretender.

      By the way, why not come back home to enjoy democratic freedoms brought by your anointed, vise, humble, visionary and CONVICTED embezzler instead of living in a Country where you are just another economic refugee awaiting deportation as failed asylum seeker.

How come Lungu was on the road and not in the barge with the Litunga? Where were the presidential road sweepers? Was it not only the presidential motorcade rushing ahead to meet with the head of state as he alighted from the Nalikwanda while HH was riding in person using the road? I am confused here with the reporting as earlier it was reported Lungu enjoying the ride on the Nalikwanda! Full of kid stupidity jesting! Politics ya pa Zed is sickening and has a long way to mature in all cases!

Worse no president or Prime minister security matters are managed with such brutality of terror to citizens. Hope you got news that Lungu protested and threatened to return to Lusaka because of crowds that went to see and welcome HH and GBM. Am not fan of them but appeared and seem more popular than Lungu. Only colonial methods of terrorising citizens have to be used to gain respect and recognise Lungu as president.

They usually have 2 unmarked security vehicles – no police escorts. By the way, you can go Buckingham Palace and take pictures if you want – something you cannot do at statehouse because Lungu is scared and feeling insecure about the election he stole.

He does not need all the security that is on display every day. They seem to take pleasure in inconveniencing citizen by traveling in long motorcades. For heaven’s sake, he is just a leader of a third world country with a monorail and the economy of a large university in the USA. Stop worshiping this King of tribes called Lungu !

Which developed countries do you live in where the Presidential Motorcade mingles/drives freely with civilian traffic on the roads/streets? These are countries where you are even required, by law, as a driver to pullover (or get off the road) when you see “emergency lights” (police, ambulance, firefighting vehicles, etc.) in your rear-view mirror. So stop lying that where you live civilian traffic supposedly doesn’t even give a sh!t about the Queen’s motorcade. C’mon now, let us be serious!

The Popularity of HH & GBM among the Lozis shocked Lungu that is why his motorcade overtook HH’s Motorcade so that Lungu goes ahead and close HH from the Ceremony. When the Lozis realised that HH their Hero had been locked out of the Ceremony they started walking out of the venue. Lungu addressed his Security and Civil Servants. Illegitimacy is biting Lungu and he is very jealous of HH’s popularity among the Lozis. In an attempt to force the Petitioners and their Supporters to recognize Lungu u can expect further violations of HH &GBM’s Constitutional Rights.As the Petition Hearing Process heats up u can…

    • You must understand that there are all sorts of protocols, including presidential protocols to be followed, in every country.
      It never happens that The president arrives at a function where he is the Guest of Honour, and then another impostor VIP comes later. The Hyena deliberately thought in his wisdom that he would achieve something big by obstructing the presidential motorcade, he ended up being embarrassed.

      My advice to HH and all his blind followers is that if he thinks he is worthy of the position of the president of Zambia and not ECL, then let him show it by acting like a dignified person and not the riffraff he is.

    • my friend I have lived in many countries and even the most powerful economies such as the UK do not inconvenience their people whenever the prime minister travels. At most it is just two security cars escorting the premier while people continue with their business on the road. Only ambulances and emergency police cars are given way by drivers. So who is phucking lungu for us to bow down to? Remember that we the zambian people pay the president and therefore we are his employers. The sad thing is that we have not employed lungu because the chap is a fraud. wake up

    • @Njimbu, what matters is the number of the electorate who voted. Therefore please do not be misled by a number of provinces your 6.5 Vs 3.5, that is irrelevant. See statistics based on ECZ 2016 elections
      Turnout 56.45%
      Total Votes Cast 3,781,505
      PF 1,860,877
      UPND 1,760,347
      You are talking about a difference of 100530, and these can easily be stolen. That is the reason you see HH keen on the court to hear his case. I am sure he would give up if ECL had won by the larger margin. Do not be mistaken, those who are counted in that 1.7mil for UPND, are not just from the 3.5 provinces. Please be objective

    • @Kubeja badala, as far as I have heard from people who have done this sort of jobs before (have a close relative who was once a police officer and provided Presidential escorts before) is that the protocol is NEVER to allow any vehicle pass/overtake the Presidential Motorcade, or to direct cars/vehicles if the can’t stay well ahead of the Presidential motorcade to pullover and give way. On a TWO-WAY street, traffic going the opposite direction is supposed to stop until the Presidential motorcade passes. But on a DIVIDED HIGHWAY () which we call DUAL CARRIAGE WAYS in Zambia) is a different story. The is the SECURITY PROTOCOL most Countries adheres to. There are may be some slight variations here and there, which is all up to the Security Detail around each individual President in every…

I support your point as a patriotic Zambian this is getting out off hand some of the people on this page they are just supporting even no-sense that is not supposed to be happening our country. I think the President needs to a Dictator because we can’t support this no-sense from HH, though I am HH’s supporter but he is now becoming a problem to our country as well as he is retarding the development of our country. To conclude the president of Zambia is ECL so ECL is the president to HH and HH is a president of our party we didn’t win we just have to accept the defeat and work with the current Government lets not be so foolish to be supporting this unproductive behavior of HH and is friends. If we say the current government has failed then as a Zambia HH is also a failure because…

  31. What happened in Mongu where motorcades carrying Edgar Lungu and Hakainde Hichilema nearly bumped each other was a properly rehearsed attempted assassination of Hichilema.

    OP senior officers have revealed that the plan was to hit HH’s and force it to overturn then blame HH for failing to give way to a presidential motorcade.

    ‘Just ask yourself, where were the presidential sweepers?’ Said one intelligence official.

    The OP explained that even a child knows that when the president is about to use the road, the police clear it 2 hours before the president passes and cops are planted along the road. But this did not happen yesterday, why?

  32. When Chanda says ‘bump Hichilema off’, he means hit him off the road. And this was the main mission.
    Chanda said “A decision was made to by pass him and in our mind we were clear non danger was posed to His Excellency unless Mr. Hichilema himself would ram his car into Eagle.“As per established security and protocol orders, a decision to bump off all strange objects was made but a quick consultation upwards resulted into a different option which was undertaken,” says Chanda.Now, this does not make sense at all. Chanda is telling the nation that within a split second, a decision to hit HH wad made, and within that split second, consultations were made and a different decision was made?????

Why didnt they stop HH’s Motorcade instead of trying to swipe HH’s Car off the Road? This was a Planned Assassination of HH which was aborted for a reason. The Petition and Illegitimacy are haunting Lungu. He knows that if the Petition is heard at ICJ he will lose the case. The idea is to stop the Petition from being heard at ICJ. Lungu is toying with the idea of eliminating the Petitioners b4 the Petition is formally lodged at ICJ and dates for a Hearing are set. The security of the Petitioners is in danger and should anything happen to HH and GBM Lungu will be held accountable. Lets hope Lungu is not planting the seeds of a Civil War in…

  47. One asked why ECL got 1.8m votes(despite coming out first in 6.5 provinces) while HH got 1.7m votes(but only won in 3.5 provinces)?the answer is simple.this happened because voters in 6.5 provinces believe in democracy so they vote for various parties.but in 3.5 provinces they only vote for upnd.even a rat as long as its on upnd ticket in bantustan areas would win!! SO ITS VOTES FROM THESE 3.5 PROVINCES WHICH BROUGHT HH CLOSER TO ECL WHO CAME OUT NUMBER 1 IN 6.5 PROVINCES-CONFIRM THESE FACTS AT ECZ!!

They were hoping HH & GBM were either going to be killed or injured in the accident. KZ also wanted to arrive at the Ceremony Venue firstf and then block HH and his delegation from entering the Ceremony Venue. This was achieved and eventually when HH arrived at Venue the Police denied him entry although he was an invited guest. KZ and his team had two options. Either to swipe HH’s Vehicle off the Road using Lungu’s Motorcade or cause an accident among the Vehicles in HH’s Convoy. They opted for the latter becoz they wanted to…

HH was in front, so he did nothing wrong.since Lungu came from behind trying to overtake, where were his security asking HH to clear the way? HH is also no ordinary person and police should know too that they’re not to put his life in danger. This kanganja is a PF IG cadre who has failed us Zambians by obeying PF thugs like Kaizer. what these PF tugs fail to understand is that Lungu is not wamuyaya; no one would like to put Lungu’s life in danger but HH’s life should not be put in danger. the road belongs to all of us.

The route to Limulunga should have been cleared at least 10 minutes before the Presidential motorcade passed

BUT HH’S MOTORCADE DELI DALIED ON THEIR WAY WITH A VIEW OF CONFRONTATION. OBVIOUSLY HH KNEW WHAT THE PLAN WAS. ALTHOUGH AM NOT AN EXPERT IN PRESIDENTIL SECURITY, I FEEL IT WAS WRONG FOR HH TO HAVE MADE EAGLE ONE TO OVER TAKE THEM. BOTH LUNGU’S AND HH’S LIVES WERE BEING PUT TO RISK. LUNGU’S FROM ANY ONE WHO DOES NOT LIKE HIM, HH’S FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL SECURITY SET UP. INFACT, HH’S SURVIVAL WAS BASED ON THE FACT THAT THEY KNEW WHO HE WAS. OTHERWISE THE PRESIDENTIAL SECURITY COULD HAVE DONE ANY THING THEY DEEMED RIGHT TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT.

    • In Zambia almost every discussion involves insults and threats but lacking in brains. Read that post again, this time carefully. Resist the pressure to insult others I believe you’d not want anyone to do the same to you. Seek knowledge and be objective. Talking about Africa being the dark continent, I can assure you, If you knew me even a little bit, you’d take back your comment, but for now let us leave it at that. Finally, I want to leave you with some thoughts:
      1. We have about 7B USD external debt – do you know when it was acquired and why?
      2. Where is the Euro bond money? On which projects has that money been used?
      3. Zambia 50+ years after independence depends 99% on hydro power from a monopoly which you know very well. Is It normal. Go to their website, you will be…

      be shocked, they even have a timetable for load shedding. I have never seen that anywhere else .
      4. Zambia 50+ years after independence depends almost completely on Copper, Is that normal to you? consider the population growth and the Copper ore depletion. BTW, we can’t even come up with a transparent mineral tax regime. We depend on well wishers to blow the whistle that Glencore is avoiding taxes and using offshore partner companies to defraud the authorities and polluting our environment (air + rivers) with impunity.
      5. Most homes in Lusaka (the ‘Garden City’) have no running water, again 50+ years after independence. IMO this is unacceptable. Water processing and purification is not rocket science

Think about it , how can companies like Zamtel exist to only continuously make losses despite their tariffs being far much higher than regional neighbors + they have government backing
      8. Just think about the state of UTH and make your own conclusion

People with this mental disorder always see attention , Martyrdom and want to be treated as small gods, hence refusing to accept defeat, due to the fact that in his mind, gods never lose. Mr. HH and His best friend did not give way to the Presidential Motorcade because they thought that the people of WESTERN PROVINCE would support them, since they already like them . And also to affirm his statements to the international community that his the president of Zambia, and maybe to also affirm that he is indeed being VICTIMISED by the current government. But to their surprise, things did not go according to their plans. FAILED AGAIN. The world and the people of Western Province have accepted, that there is…

  84. The security escort thumbs up for not removing HH off the road cause ELC had a lot to lose.No eagle symbol on his vehicle says a lot about who is in-charge of national affairs.That behavior is not only retrogressive,myopic,foolish but also has the capacity to endanger national security if replicated in Pf strong hold such as Lusaka,copperbelt,muchinga just to mention a few.

  85. In some countries, both the presidential security in that motor cade and the the person who blocked the presidential motor cade would be waiting excution by firing squad as we speak. No one stand in the way of the presidential motorcade, and no security restrain the trigger in such circumstances, it’s released at once. We can petition , we can talk anything but never at any time endanger life of the commander in chief of the armed forces. It is the worst kind of suicide. Please HH and GBM its never done that way honourables.

  86. What i see is a security lapse. Zambia Police and the Intelligence wing lapsed badly. ZP and OP Knew that the road was not clear or didnt they? We all know that there is a lot of bad blood between Lungu and HH FACT. Did the ZP have any of the 600 Officers imported stationed along the road, was any OP people tasked to monitor HH movements? What is the distance between Mongu and Lialui? These are the serious questions needing answers fro ZP and OP.
    from the picture, the presidential motorcade did the right thing to overtake, the HH motorcade did the right thing to slow down and move towards the left edge of the road. you cannot just stop a convey instantly otherwise you shall crushes in the chain.
    My opinion is Both the IG Police and DG OP must be fired.

  87. Congratulations Kaizer, ZP, OP, ZA and to all those who participated in this issue for making HH and his moron look more foolish than when they lost the elections. Their aim was to destabilize the Kuomboka ceremony so that they can put ECL to shame. It’s good that Lungu’s camp were one step ahead of them. Mongu is stable as well as Zambia is now because of your good decision which you made and it is business unusual as usual. This is how big men thinks.

  88. NEZ and other comrades, please stop insulting each other on the media. The truth remains that Lungu was legitimately elected and HH was beaten clean. iam neither a UPND or PF supporter. AS much as Western province remains a stronghold for UPND, It was a logic idea for president Lungu to officiate this year’s kuomboka. Lungu is a president of the whole zambia including DUDUMWEZI while HH is a president of just an opposition party and he needs to respect the presidential motorcade because even himself would not allow that fracas if he was a republican president. The fact is kanganja has failed and the earlier he is replaced the better. To me that appointment was missed call balungu. PF has also failed in some areas. (1) Toll fees, government is stealing money from motorists, its expensive…

  89. Why is everything politicized in this country at the expense of development and national unity? PF for once, grow up and work towards the good of this nation. For the last three years PF has only managed to close down the post newspaper and send over 2000 workers into joblessness, fighting UPND and it’s leader HH and everyone oppossed to their views and political interests. The current PF and it’s leaders have failed to even craft a vision for this country and they will not leave any legacy behind them. Look at the breakdown of the rule of law, lack of respect for the constitution, failure to respect and uphold the separation of power among the three branches of government. What is causing all this confusion in the country? It can only be PF corruption which they are trying to defend at…

  93. I DON’T BELIEVE FOR ONE MINUTE THAT OUR SECURITY WINGS WERE AS DUMB AS TO ALLOW SUCH A THING TO HAPPEN. I HAVE TWO THEORIES. (1) THE STATE MACHINERY WANTED TO CAUSE HAVOC AND BLAME IT ON HH (PROBABLY THEY WANTED TO KILL HH?) (2) KNOWING THE SHABBY IQ LEVELS OF THE LIKES OF AMOS CHANDA AND HIS CORHORTS, THEY WANTED TO SHOW THE PEOPLE OF MONGU THAT ECL IS THE PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. UNFORTUNATELY FOR THEM, THE PEOPLE OF MONGU (WESTERN PROVINCE) ARE NOT GULLIBLE. THEY KNOW THAT ECL IS AN ILLEGITIMATE LEADER. THEY KNOW WHO REALLY WON. TRUTH IS HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM IN WESTERN PROVINCE.

  94. ITS FOOLISH FOR SOMEONE TO THINK THAT HH’S MOTORCADE COULD HAVE STOPPED ABRUPTLY LIKE A BICYCLE. IT WAS A CONVOY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! WE HAVE A LOT OF CHILDREN IN PF.

    THEY REALLY WANT EVERYBODY TO RECOGNIZE THEIR PRESIDENT. THINGS DON’T WORK LIKE THAT. LEGITIMACY IS EARNED AFTER DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW. CUTTING CORNERS WILL ONLY ATTRACT SCORN LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. THE ONLY WAY TO END THIS IS TO LET THE PETITION BE HEARD. OTHERWISE, A LOT OF US WILL NEVER RECOGNIZE ECL.

  95. Honestly, I don’t understand this whole madness blaming HH. Why are you not blaming the police or Presidential security team? They should have ensured the road was clear at least an hour before ECL was going to use the road. Did they ask HH entourage to get off the road? Nowhere have I read that he was asked and refused. All I hear is incapable security team discussing option how to or not to hit his vehicle. I am sure they knew they were not right in the first place, and any action would have raised an outcry. The security failed, and its not HH`s fault as he was being overtaken by ECL, was he told to clear off the road? This whole saga is unheard off, can only happen in Zambia. Both PF and UPND, we are fed up with your childish behaviour and lack of leadership

    HH IS AN ATHEIST, BIG TIME. HE CLAIMS TO BE AN ADVENTIST ELDER, A SABBATH KEEPER. ASK HIM WHY HE ADDRESSES PRESS CONFERENCES AND POLITICAL RALLIES ON THIS DAY.
    WHAT WAS HE DOING IN MONGU INSTEAD OF CHURCH ON SABBATH?

    DID YOU SEE HOW HIS CAR DANGEROUSLY SWERVED OUT OF THE TARMAC ROAD WITH ONE SILLY CHAP CLUTCHING TO THE DOOR?

  100. To whom it may concern
    Dear All,
    Why could a normal human being call hh a legitimate president unless he was declared winner at any of the 5 or five elections he has transparently lost?Some pipo are learned quite alright but fail to distinguish sense from nonsense,I wonder.If u r normal,just accept Mr/Dr/Sir/Bwana/HE/President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the elected and legitimate President of Zambia.If u want to believe this,carryout this simple and straight forward assignment for me:”Go to any part of Southern province and ask grade 1 pupils,Tonga by tribe,that who is the President of Zambia?”They will give a correct answer that “Edgar Lungu.” Unless to would want to share your insanity into them.Read and understand this essay and ask me questions in a polite way where u r not clear…

  102. Comment:I’m not a politician I’m a woman of God why these insults and for what ? The Bible says give honour to whomever it is due whose supposed to be honoured must be honoured and Zambia is a christian nation which exalts the values of the word of God and takwaba ujatalikana na lesa cause there’s no predicament against the word of God the word of God is final give honour to it is due periodically and God ill bless such a one on the throne of Zambia it’s righteousness on that throne whose not doing the word will never climb the throne God himself ill block such a one were praying for Zambia the word of God must prevail
