By Sakwiba Sikota SC

The Lusaka Times has reported  in a statement released by party Spokesman Charles Kakoma, the United Party for National Development is requesting that Scotland Yard or any other reputable organisation investigate the chemicals that were used to teargas Mr Hichilema’s home, bedroom and safe room.

Spokesman Kakoma said Mr Hichilema’s condition is deteriorating and must be investigated immediately. Mr Hichilema is held at Lilayi Police Training Camp on treason charges.

Mrs. Mutinta Hichilema said she found her husband in a worse condition than he was before the raid at their home.

Mr Kakoma agreed with her and said “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. 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.

Zambia is recently very much in the news since the raid. One wonders whether with all the Syria, Afghanistan and North Korea in Donald Trump’s focus, he has had time to pay attention to the Zambian drama.

We have,however, heard that President Trump is close to Mr. Hichilema and the two mega businessmen have a lot in common and probably think alike.

Opposition UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has claimed that he is talking to US President Donald Trump. Mr. Hichilema said, “I would not want to disclose so much but just know that we are talking to President Trump. Once he has settled down, he will deal with all these African dictators who are abusing human rights,.” Mr. Hichilema said this when he was addressing a media briefing at his residence in Lusaka on Monday, 3rd April 2017.

The UPND are sure that the State Police used some illegal toxic dangerous poisonous chemicals which they sprayed all over Hichilema’s home when they raided it and smoked him out of hiding and arrested him.

It is this clearly very toxic and dangerous illegal poisonous chemical which has affected Hichilema so quickly and severely.

This is why they are making the strong case for the international community to call for Hichilema to be examined by Scotland Yard and other experts like those who looked at the Syrian use of poisonous gas to examine Hichilema.

As Holy Week was approaching, in the last fortnight, the United States launched fifty-nine cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield because President Trump was morally repulsed and indignant at the use of poison gas by Syria.

Trump maintains that the gas was deployed intentionally by President Assad on his own citizens. An act so repellant and so against international moral norms that the civilized world and the United States had to use its force.

Whatever was sprayed at Hichilema’s home was exposed to all the occupants like the workers, his wife, and children who were with him when he was gassed by the poisonous illegal chemicals that have affected him so severely.

His wife even fainted twice and so she was more exposed to the gas than he was.

What made matters worse is that one of his children who was exposed to the gas is even asthmatic and therefore more affected by the gas than him.

What made Hakainde’s close friend Donald Trump to decide to bomb Syria is when he saw pictures of the women and children affected by the poisonous illegal gas.

It is not that HH’s workers’ wife and children are immune to the poisonous illegal chemical gas that has so severely affected Hichilema that we are not being bombed like Syria.

The only reason we have not been bombed by the United States President who is Hakainde’s very good friend, and probably the last person Trump tweets each night or early morning, is because UPND have shown great restraint and not exposed all those people affected by the potent poisonous gas that must have equally affected all those around HH in the same way it has devastated him.

I pray that Kakoma and the UPND continue to show this restraint and do not show Trump pictures of HH’s children.

    • Hahahaha…, very funny @Sakwiba Sikota SC. You have cracked my ribs LOL”ing”. Very funny satire!

      Maybe the rest of the people who were with Hechi Hechi when he got “gassed” have mutated DNA to be affected by this mysterious poisonous gas that has affected only him so much. In the past only his cadres whom he sent to face the Police got tear gassed while he revved and insulted in the safety of his house veranda and he thought it was funny games.

      Ukose mambala HH. You still have a long and rough road ahead of you to beating these charges. Mwalitete is acting more of a man in jail for his “sins” than this chief-kachema—Kikikikikiki….!!!!!

    • A very stupid write up. At a time the opposition is facing police brutality, its being insensitive to add salt to injury and write such nonsense. Those who have been teargassed before know very well how it feels, now imaging being teargassed the whole night in a confined space, does this sound like something to joke about? Sakwiba you were one of the most celebrated lawyers in Zambia and a defender of human rights but what happened to you? For a lawyer you should be in the forefront condemning the human rights abuse inflicted by the police on HH and others. Shame on you Sakwiba!

      Let have more coming..

      As for HH and his upnd… I have a lot of things that I don’t agree with HH and upnd but in all fairness, the police acted brutally and disproportionately when they raided his house to arrest him.
      Now that he’s been charged, I look forward to the drama that will be unfolding in the High Court soon.

    • @UKO, HH is even lucky he was only teargassed for refusing to comply with Police orders when he was told to come out of his hiding “bunker”. Here in America, Police could have used even more powerful “coxing” means, like STUN GRENADES, to smoke him out—police here are allowed to used such non-lethal but extreme measures to make criminal suspects comply with orders.

      In fact, HH should ask his older brother, Trump, what he is planning to let Police get way with if his ATTORNEY GENERAL succeeds in reversing everything the Obama Administration put in place to curtail Police BRUTALITY and ABUSE of their authority.

  11. I am PF but very mindful that such loads of rubbish called articles don’t help anybody. The age and maturity of the writer needs scrutiny. We should all be responsible and help heal our nation. I will always stand on the side of the truth. My introspection as a PF member tells me the way we picked Hichilema from his home to the Police station was inappropriate, despite the suspected gravity of the offence. It is the courts to decide the punishment not Police. PF for life

    • What if Mr. Hichilema voluntarily came out when he discovered that the police were outside looking for him, would the issue of teargassing have arisen? I suspect there must have been attempt to resist arrest but this is only my viewpoint I may be wrong.

  13. A state counsel must defend the rule of law, not police brutality. But of course you become a state counsel because you are appointed by a politician. That’s why this state counsel title for Sakwiba is as rubbish as Sakwiba himself. To write this crap of an article and put SC shows how harebrained Sakwiba is; but again Sakwiba has no LLB; he just studied a few law courses at a polytechnic in the UK.

  17. To understand why teargas can affect people differently you have to understand the science of pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics. But Zambians are so backward, you cannot know these areas of study.
    To cut the chase, these sciences say the way individuals react to drugs and toxic chemicals depends on their genes (genomics).
    So HH can come out worse than his wife or kids because the way he reacts is different from the way his wife or kids react; their genomes are not the same.
    It’s the same way some react badly to chloroquine and others do not. Some people react badly to beef and others do not. It is a valid point that individuals can react differently to chemicals.
    So this article by Sakwiba demonstrates a basic lack of understating of pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics.

      Stop behaving like you have just eaten a big RAT with rabies! Your tribalism makes you blind to realities. Sakwiba Sikota, an OLD lawyer with a fake degree is making a joke about the effect of the toxic substances on HH’s family! Unfortunately, the AR.SEWHORE of the fake lawyer thinks those toxic gases have the same effect on ALL people – exposing his huge levels of ignorance. One would have expected a qualified lawyer to be generally aware of this BUT not with Sakwiba – common sense doesn’t exist in him which is why he has fake degrees!!
      But you, Phiri, the RAT eater should have picked this up and NOT take anything the fake lawyer talks about. The only problem is that ALL rat eaters at the moment are just following what Lungu and Rupiah do even the nonsense we are seeing…

  20. Good reading.First, he was gassed with toxins.It affected him worse than his asthmatic wife who fainted twice in the ordeal,and recovered without medical attention.Since it does not seem to make sense to most of us as how the gas only targeted the self proclaimed president of zambia,now he says he was injected with poison.Gassed,injected what next?

  21. 20 YEARS AGO IN HISTORY, WHEN 95% OF LT BLOGGERS WERE NOT EVEN BORN,

    Mr Muhabi Lungu, then spokesman of KK had the following to say on BBC about KKs incarceration by the MMD government: “He has refused to take any food or water until he’s taken to the court of law to be officially charged. We are very frightened of the consequences because a lot of people are very angry.” KK is being detained in an over-crowded remand prison. He has been put into a cell with 30 other inmates, which is heavily infested with lice and rats.”They have put him in the worst possible conditions.”

    • @Pwele,
      HH seems to react easily to tear gas because he always sends his cadres to face the Zambian Police. He does not even know how tear gas smells and has never been affected by it because he always commands his unsuspecting cadres to face the police from the comforts of his air conditioned office. All of a sudden, HH realises he can be affected by tear gas and begins with the entire UPND to hallucinate he has been subjected to the same gas Assad subjected Syrian children to. Grow up ba UPND. Do not start trouble if you cannot even face tear gas!!!

      If you look at Skwiba’s skin especially on the face, it looks like a snake’s skin (not humanish) and that is how evil is at the bottom of his heart!! Records are there for the fake degree he got from a fake College at Algate East in East London.

    Who invented tear gasses, is it the Zambians police or the Western world? Tu UPND, think before you expose yourselves and already it appears you are underrating the case before HH it’s TREASON!
    HH thinks he can disregard the law because of his stolen money, hey? In fact the chap needs to behind bars for the rest of his life and let’s see what the tribal grouping would do. Prisons are non selective and HH is nothing but a criminal who deserves no mercy at at all.

Instead of laughing about Sakwiba’s satirical piece, all shallow-minded UPND cadres engage in is a fruitless debate over nothing.
