HH (in a hat) being transported to Liliayi

The opposition UPND has appealed to ask Scotland Yard of the United Kingdom to investigate the alleged poisoning of its leader Hakainde Hichilema who has been detained for close to a week.

In a statement released by party Spokesman Charles Kakoma, the party is requesting that Scotland Yard or any other reputable organisation to investigate the chemicals that were used to teargas Mr Hichilema’s bedroom.

Mr Kakoma said Mr Hichilema’s condition is deteriorating and must be investigated immediately.

Mr Hichilema who is held at Lilayi Police Training Camp on treason charges had earlier complained to his lawyer Jack Mwiimbu that he was unwell following his arrest.

But Police have been denying his visits from relatives, friends and supporters until on Saturday when his wife Mutinta in the company of a lawyer and a personal doctor managed to visit him.
Mr Kakoma said Mutinta said she found her husband in a worse condition than before.

“As UPND, we demand that Mr Hichilema should be subjected to rigorous medical tests and treatment by independent doctors who are free from government interference,” Mr Kakoma said.

“We also wish to request the international community and human rights organisations to intervene in this matter. In particular, we wish to ask Scotland Yard of the United Kingdom or any other reputable organisation to investigate the chemicals that were used to teargas Mr Hichilema’s bedroom,” he said.

He added, “The Zambian authorities should take this matter seriously. As a party, we would like to warn the patriotic front government that they will be held responsible for anything that will happen to Mr Hichilema while he is in their Police custody.”

    • Lungu had better hope that never happens, otherwise his own end will be worse than Gaddafi’s.

    • HH has no respect or regard for his wife Mutinta and people that know him can testify. People should stop lying to themselves that HH is a good man. He has caused this because of his arrogant and evil way. Lastly, do you know Scotland Yard? They have no time to deal with this nonsense and attention seeking HH.

    • I started staying away from ifivivu after naumfwa impilipili and kamfinsa police slaps. That combination makes you feel like you have been poisoned and eventually you become a better person like me.

  2. These bunch of UPND chaps is the worst thing that’s ever happened to this country.You really think you can break the Laws of this country and expect the world to sympathize with you? HH would have avoided all this had he just ordered his driver to stop.We are sick and tired of these people who are hell bent on disrupting the development of Zambia. We should be debating on how to develop our nation rather than talk about individuals who think that they own the country with everything in it. If UPND would like Scotland yard to investigate then let GMB and HH pay for the services, why do you want to waste government money on some lunatics on a crusade? we are sick and tired of you people!

YOU ARE A HEARTLESS LOT ALTHOUGH WE ARE COMFORTED GOD WILL DEAL WITH YOU WHICHEVER WAY. WE PRAY THAT YOU ARE SAVED AND THAT GOD WILL WORK IN YOUR LIVES BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEEM TO REALIZE MONEY IS THE ROOT OF EVIL. YOU ARE NOT WATCHING YOUR GREED AND IT IS CAUSING YOU TO BE EVIL.

    • @Kasongo and Spaka, you should learn how to read and articulate issues rather than just going on a tangent. Why do you have to wait for government to create jobs? HH is not the president of Zambia and until you get that in your heads, maybe and just maybe you will realize why people are fed up with his antics. As for Kasongo, I really don’t know what planet you are on. You sound like a paid blogger so not even going to waste my time replying to your comment. If you break the Law, it does not matter whether you are GBM or HH or Lungu, the law is the law period.

  6. Lungu is now realising that hh is more influential than him. I really wonder who lungus strategists are because whoever came up with this idea of locking up hh must be very dull or actually supports hh because this has played very well into our favour. Now we have got the world’s attention as to the need for petition to be heard and also lungus crooked schemes to get Zambia out of icc due to his abuse of human rights. Next week am travelling to some countries in Europe to meet with key stakeholders and funders. You cannot break our spirit

    • Mr NEZ

      What have you done to encourage and support the petition being signed by zambians to stop IMF and other western lenders giving lungu loans to brutalise zambians ???

      You seem to be talking a lot but not doing much where it matters.

    • Spaka I have signed the petition and also posted it here requesting people to sign it. I am travelling to Europe and the Americas next week and that petition will be on the agenda. I know it may seem like we are doing nothing as strategists but our work is behind the scenes. We calculate risks and benefits of certain causes of actions to give advice to the party at large. Please have faith and trust in us. We thank you

  7. Wasn’t HH with his wife when he was allegedly teargassed? Is the ‘Gas’ that was used so discriminatory that it only ‘poisoned’ HH?

  8. That’s what happens when you want to take things by force, you see every where leaders follow the law and if you think you can rule this Country by not following the law sorry Zambia has only one place for lawbreakers.

  9. Let him pay the price for his folly. Was HH the only occupant in the house when the so called poison gas was thrown in? Why are the others not affected?It’s just the environment of the cells that is wearing him out. Is it so difficult to practice clean politics by HH and his minions?

  11. My only worry is that civilisation is taking too long to reach this part of the world.it is taking far too long. To get a political opponent to a Police station, all you need to do is to issue a Police call out. The man has never refused to go to the Police each time he is summoned. COMMON SENSE PLEASE. I AM PF. You don’t need guns, bombs and tear gas. It is unnecessary…

  13. It is not clear what Lungu and his fellow Criminals intended to achieve by Raiding HH’s House brutalising the Occupants, teargassing them, stealing money,food and assets, then arresting HH and slapping him with Treason etc? The law of unintended consequences rules. Now the whole World’s attention is on Zambia. There will be more calls for Dialogue and pressure to hear the Petition at ICJ. People can now see thru Lungu’s motive to leave the ICC becoz he knows that what he has done amounts to crimes against humanity and he should be indicted to ICC. Under these circumstances Mutati can forget about any Foreign Financial Assistance whether loans or grants. To make matters worse Lungu has threatened the USA,EU and other International and Regional Bodies for insisting that to resolve the…

    • Ba Moyo ..those theories do not work in the real world. BA IMF are in business and they will NEVER be bothered by one HH. You should have advised him to humble himself than behave like another Zambian President. He had his chance before SATA died ………on a silver plate but he so full of himself hence can not read situations properly. All those institutions you are mentioning have already been briefed of what REALLY happened. And you NOT get any OFFICIAL comments from them.

  14. HH said that he was ready for jail? A body that is conditioned to live its life in luxury ready for the conditions of prison? The underfive spoilt boy would still become sick even if he were to be subjected to mere village conditions.
    Aimvela jele, sazabwezapo. If necessary he will be taken to hospital under heavy police gusrd befitying a treason suspect, but, BUT he will dkeays go back to the cells until the case is disposed off.
    Also in jail you may be given some privacy to speak to your wife, but no more than that. You argue with me, its a prison badaala, not your master bedroom!

  16. @15 Moyo, do you think that IMF and other internationall finance and investors think like you? If anything, for investors money to be secure law breakers must be kept where they belong: GAOL.?
    Have you ever heard IMF demand that all jails be closed as a condition to giving financial assistance to Zambia or any other country? Come on UPNDonkeys, can’t you learn even simple lessons?

  17. Micheal kindly give me 1 example of a treason charged person anywhere in the world who was ever summoned to a police station with a police callout? If you are treason charged you are uplifted by force. You are a greater criminal. Ask Gen Miyanda. He was transported in a sack in a boot of a car from DRC to Lusaka. He spoiled in his trousers.

  21. These UPNDers are such alarmists. What on earth is Scotland Yard going to investigate on what is most certainly an area others have since passed through? The so called evidence could be tampered with I.e. Put there by UPND. @ uncle Charles, us correct, in asking why only HH, would be affected but nit others.

  22. The people financing HH are cheating him but the truth is he will die for nothing why can’t he tell them to pack it in.Zambians are not stupid you insulted them and there revenge was the ballot box.This whole saga has ended his political career.He is heading the same way as Dean Mungomba
    His greed will finish him the other surprising thing is how this family loves to talk about civil war but when push comes to shove even before gunshots are fired they run to their bunkers UKUITEMWA.
