The Interim Leadership of the Party for National Unity
The Interim Leadership of the Party for National Unity

Former UPND Bweengwa Member of Parliament Highvie Hamududu has officially launched a new political party called Party for National Unity (PNU).

Addressing a news conference during the launch of the party in Lusaka today, Mr Hamududu who served as MP from 2006 until 2011 when the UPND declined his application to recontest the seat said the aim of launching the new party is to unify the nation.

Mr Hamududu, a UNZA trained Economist said PNU will aim at promoting the true spirit of national unity and inclusiveness in all spheres of national building.

He said it is not a secret that Zambia is currently highly polarised and if not managed well, the country could end up in a chaotic position.

“The two main forms of polarization that are causing anxiety are political and economic. The country is being torn apart by political extremism that has little room for political dialogue in the country,” Mr Hamududu said.

Mr Hamududu who also unveiled Mr Anthony Lusaka as the party’s Interim Vice President said the party will be unveiling its political and economic programme predicated on closing both the political and economic divides that have beset our country.

“This will be undoubtedly be a tomorrow government driven by a tolerant, democratic, unifying, pragmatic and futuristic team. After 53 years of Independence, the country is getting bitterly divided along tribal and regional lines and there is no unity of purpose across the political landscape. Politics have become more divisive, violent, petty, personal, ethnic and non-issue based,” he said.

He added, “The 2016 general election was the worst demonstration of the above, threatening the very fabric of our cherished national unity. 50 years after Independence the much preached about economic emancipation that was promised at Independence is a tattered dream at best.”

“The majority of our people are not meaningfully participating in economic activities. Debt levels are again at an all-time with foreign debt being calculated at over USD 6.7 billion as at end of 2016, created by unprecedented levels of economic mismanagement,” he said.

Mr Hamududu said, “Personal and personal related emoluments account for approximately 50% of government budgetary revenue, starving the transformative and inclusive development agenda despite the positive economic growth rates in the recent past. The latest poverty figures reveal that 40.8 percent of the country’s population.”

He said under PNU, they believe that the next 50 years shall be the best that Zambia will ever experience.

“We invite every Zambian, regardless of tribe, race, creed and gender to come as we endeavour to fulfil the vision of the founding fathers of our great nation that envisaged Zambia as a land of work, joy and unity. We will soon be unveiling a balanced and an all-inclusive interim executive committee that will lead the party towards an elective national conference,” he said.

    • I think being Tonga is being disadvantaged regrettably.

      Being Bemba is like having been born on the A side

      Only thing about that party in “unity”. I don’t know whom to unit with, everybody loves me.

    • Junior HH (High I’ve Hamududu), there is no unity you can bring in Zambia when you are dealing with tribes from the North and the East. Just look at the way your ka small Party is being welcomed by such people like Mushota and others. You are just wasting your energy. Had you formed your ka Party with a goal of dividing Zambia into North-Western Zambia and North-eastern Zambia, I would have happily joined your Ka- Party.

    • Am Bemba and have interacted with Highvie before. He is a very intelligent, humble and down-to-earth person. He does not have the arrogance of Hakainde. He does certainly present a very good alternative for Zambia for many of us who are ready to work with people from other regions like the Southern Province. Am sure, I will be running into Highvie one of these days and getting to discuss with him in terms of what he stands for. As Zambians, we need to be a lot more open-minded with each other if we are going to continue to co-exist. Another party run by somebody else from the South is very healthy for Zambia. Let us not give the impression only Northerners, Easterners, Muchingans or Luapulans can lead political parties and aspire for leadership.

    • @Mushota. That is why this union of NE Rhodesia and NW Rhodesia (now called Zambia) is no longer viable. Look at how the so called Zambia is split according to the voting pattern for 2016 elections, it speaks volumes of two different peoples pretending to be living together. We are different. So like wise Zambia must split accordingly.

    • Mushota, I have been following you a while and do value your usual out-of-context commentary. I have always thought you simply love humour and comedy. However, your opinions about the Tonga people depict the kind of upbringing you may have experienced. The superiority complex is always a disease and if I am to take you seriously, you are beginning to cross the boundary of reason, logic, common sense and sanity. You are in an environment where the black race is stereotyped as some form of curse. It could be the way we think about ourselves. Your reasoning and mindset exhibited in most of your posts justify the judgment of your current neighbors about you. If you are truly some PhD material as you claim, think bigger picture, context and good judgement in what you post.

    • Why is the PF desperate to sponsor the launching of a party that they know will not divide any votes for UPND with the current situation in our country. I am proud of who Iam as cute lady born from a Tonga man and Bemba lady. You will notice f00ls from their multitude of words just to show up they have spoken on every thread at LT. However, I speak with wisdom as one that is ordained with it. PF will be cerebrating this even when they know the launched party will not survive like the rainbow. Its irrational to think that UPND will fight the unity party as PF fought the Democratic Front.

  1. This guy is a genius and have lots to offer to this great nation.
    The only problem was he spent too much time under HH who is a tribal leader and short sighted for that matter.
    Anyways, better late than never – just bring in other tribes as well in your party so that together we can slowly but painfully kill UPND

  2. What’s the economic agenda? Only Sinkamba has outlasted them all because he chose dagger from very early on. What is the symbol by the way? I think now Sinkamba has involved DRC and soon to include Malawi, Botswana, Lesotho and parts of Namibia in his wrangles with late King Leopold of Europe. He is also in search of reunification. Zambia has strong people.

  3. By the way its not a secret that HH is the one who has single handedly brought politics on triabal lines and violent as well. If you remove HH from politics sanity will be brought back to Zambian politics.

      You refuse to acknowledge and disrespect and provoke those in power then you say those in power can bring division or unity?

      “First, respect for the head of state is a cardinal rule in international relations and democracies. The incidents in Western Province appear provocative. It should be possible to combine polite respect, and adherence to Zambian protocol, with disagreement and even legal challenge.

    • HH MUST BE ERASED FROM ZAMBIAN POLITICS. HE HAS BEEN A DISASTER AND ALWAYS WANTING TO DEVIDE ZAMBIA ALONG TRIBAL LINES. THE ONLY DISADVANTAGE WITH THE NEW PARTY IS THAT ALL TONGAS WILL LEAVE UPND (AS THE NEW PARTY IS FORMED BY A TONGA MAN) AND CREATE ANOTHER UPND DISGUISED IN THE NEW PARTY. HH HAS DIVIDED ZAMBIA TRIBALLY AND IT MAY TAKE A LONG TIME TO RE-UNITE THE COUNTRY.

    • @13 Sinono, The PROBLEM you have is that A TONGA is NOT SUPPOSED TO THINK DIFFERENTLY FROM OR OPPOSE HH then SUCH A PERSON IS SIDING WITH HH’s OPPONENTS!! HIGHVIE HAMUDUDU was a very eloquent and efficient MP in UPND. HIS DEBATES WERE ALWAYS BASED ON ISSUES, he offers SOME FRESH AIR and THOSE THAT LOOK TO ISSUE BASED POLITICS THE WAY UPND STARTED CAN SUPPORT HIM! You may worried that the held tribal rant that BEMBA DON’T WANT TO WORK OTHERS IS DYING! There is GBM, NALUMANGO IN UPND, there is now ANTONY LUSAKA IN PNU and in PF the two TOP SLOTS ARE HELD BY NSENGA and A LOZI!! So be OBJECTIVE!!

    • No Sinono. This is not how we should take it. For your information, Zambia will soon produce a Tonga President but in the most unexpected of ways. I am not saying Hamududu will. What I sense is that a Tonga will be president but may not be a product of UPND. That is how I see things. So, look at things broadly.

  10. We need more of a movement than a kantemba party to restore democracy and decentralized governance structure or a Federal system! All governance institutions have collapsed! To contain this, we need to compartmentalize the country into states. Any rot that starts in a particular state remains in that state. We can share the national debt among those states and see who gets out of debt faster! A Federal System is the way to go! Stop cheating yourselves with this “One Zambia One Nation” fantasy from KK! When it comes to sharing the national cake, there is no such thing as one Zed!

      It is called Lungus PF. The collision is going to be a very spectacular TRAIN SMASH when the borrowed kaloba runs out due to PF thievery and the interest cannot be paid. And the IMF refuses to bail out these bankrupts unless the RULE OF LAW is upheld, not the PF kangaroo Kourts bribed by Lungu.

      Bad news is — it will be poor Zambians that suffer. PF has stolen enough of the TEN BILLION to last their lifetimes.

We are now seen the emergence of a new HH under Hamududu confirming our point.

  15. I think the political landscape is ready for a new political player with the right message. People are tired of PF and UPND fighting and if a new party comes along that shows inclusivity in its leadership and programmes, they could sweep the political landscape. Highgive used to debate very intelligently in Parliament so I believe this is a person who has a great message for the people.

    UPND has no platform, no strategy and above all no message to convince potential voters. All they know is HH, but the question is who is HH and who cares about him anyway? PF came on the scene with a message and true to their word Zambia is now slowly but surely getting it’s place in Africa through stead development and NOT blind and hero worshiping.

I 100% agree with Munone.before HH became UPND leader,tribalism in politics was almost not there as Zambian politicians worked together in UNIP and MMD.the 1991 MMD had FTJ Chiluba,Godfrey Miyanda,General Christon Tembo,Sikota Wina,Bennie Mwiinga,etc.BUT HEY AFTER ANDERSON MAZOKA DIED,HERE CAME HH WHO PREACHED TRIBALISM FROM DAY ONE!!!since 2006 HH has been preaching tribal politics in 3.5 provinces.he openly used to tell them that nobody from Southern,Western and N/Western has been Zambian president,so you must vote for me(HH) as one of you.this is the message HH has been preaching since 2006.ONCE HH IS REPLACED AS UPND LEADER,THAT WILL MARK THE END (or it will reduce drastically) OF TRIBAL POLITICS IN ZAMBIA!!

  26. This culture of resorting to starting splinter parties whenever differences arise within an existing party, is detrimental to a nation’s political system. When are we going to grow? When are we going to learn to face each other to resolve differences of opinion? When are we going to learn to exist side by side, even though opposed to, and yet not antagonistic to each other? That is what “NATIONAL UNITY” would mean. It’s what it would have to entail. There is always a price to pay, interests to sacrifice, for the good of the nation, for the benefit of unity.

When an academician forms a political party I would expect the least of civilized and exposed people, with analytical knowledge to be so tribally inclined. When tribalism finds space among the elites and knowledgeable citizens then it will be very difficult to sell the message of peace and unity. If you cannot tolerate and appreciate one another why then share sovereignty which is based on tribal hatred as if the country was rebuilt after civil war. Even Angola that saw bloody civil war has its citizens accommodative of one another. Why is this tribal talk so relevant these days??

    • why do pf cadres close their eyes when analyzing national development,you claim mongu incidence when the issues of division started way back,tongas were insulted and the veep had to issue an apology,lungu said i will lock up HH months before 2016 elections,davis chama said tongas have to cross breed if the want to have a presdo,what were national prayers called for?who displayed coffin?who has blocked campaigns claiming national security,the list is endless,so exposing our submind wont solve the root cause,the mongu incidence is just the resultant,the british high commissioner went further in his statement that zambia has witnessed some dictatorial trends unfolding in zambia,and he said though the mongu incidence is regrettable it didnot warrant a treason offence.

    • It is an interesting scenario when one who has his/her eyes closed accuses the person next to him as having his/her eyes closed.

      One gentleman sang a song saying,
      A man asked a blind man, “Mwalila mbuya!”
      And the blinds answered, “tafimoneka”.
      The man asked asked the blind man, “manje iwe ungaone bwanji koma Mendoza uliye!”

      This the scenario I see with comment above.

      How can you say PF cadres close eyes when analyzing? Is it PF cadres who failed to count the fourteen days during the stale and expired petition?

      Who the closes eyes? And nafuti ma preliminaries yayamba. And you still think it is PF closing eyes?

      This is why I say if you eyes are closed and you are not aware, you will accuse the person next to you of not seeing, kanshi niwebo.

  35. The man has no house of his own. He is renting a house from his in-laws. How is he going to unite the country with his reckless behaviour because he served as an MP for two terms and came out with nothing. Let him use the cheque he has received from Lungu wisely.

  36. Mushota keep on bucking because you are a Bemba with no traditional teachings, Tawafundwa kabili limbi ulimwana wamubuhule. I am a bemba and only you who is from a mixed blood and not a true Bemba a confused lady/ gentleman can continue making such attacks so that you bring perpetual hatred with us by our colleagues.

  37. This is a wasted effor, cash and time. This little thing ain’t going anywhere because it’s obvious it’s a divide and rule thing. Chill Hamududu and reason like a learned person. We have too many parties around including that of Ba Miyanda who we think is more of a man of integrity than yourself. Just do a STAR thing and go back where you belong.

  38. This Hamududu is being used the same way Mainza Chona was used to neutralise the Tonga/Bemba alliance to win the UNIP vice presidency in 1967. Bembas please keep away from victimising Tongas & political persecution of HH & leave it to the Easterners. You have nothing to lose other than fighting other peoples’ wicked battles. Kampyongo, Sunday Chanda, Amos Chanda, Mumbi Phiri, Davies Chama (Mushota , an LT editor fishing for a diplomatic post from PF as a press attache) are too dull to know that they are being used the same way Kambwili was used to attack Tongas. Have you ever heard Dora Siliya, Kaizer Zulu or Inonge opening their mouths carelessly on this issue yet they are chief enjoyers! I thought you were wise but obviously NOT! Ba Kapwepwe died a little for KK. He even gave KK,…

  39. He even gave KK, Bemba ethnicity & a clan of abena Bowa, but where did he end up?
    Despite their friendship from childhood, Kapwepwe and Kaunda drifted apart after leading Zambia to independence. In 1967 Kapwepwe led a rebellion within UNIP. He stood against Reuben Kamanga and won the position of deputy leader of UNIP. (Kapwepwe won because of support from Tonga because our so called Mbuyas voted “Kumawa Umodzi”). As a consequence, Kaunda promoted him to the position of Vice President. He used his new position to put forward economic policies that differed from Kaunda’s, but his views were sidelined. He also campaigned for the preservation of Zambian culture through the teaching of indigenous languages in schools. In August 1969, he offered to resign from the Vice Presidency as well as…

  40. In August 1969, he offered to resign from the Vice Presidency as well as the deputy leadership of UNIP. This move was precipitated by tribal friction within UNIP ( Bembas vs your so called “mbuyas”). Source: Wikipedia
    Kapwepwe’s life in UNIP began drawing to an end when he was linked with rumours of a new party called the United Progressive Party (UPP) that had been formed on the Copperbelt. He did not own up until Kaunda dismissed four cabinet ministers on suspicion of being clandestine members of the new party. In August 1971, Kapwepwe resigned from UNIP and the government and announced that he was, indeed, the leader of UPP. In December 1971 he won a by-election for the Mufulira West constituency, and became his party’s sole representative in parliament. Kaunda was not pleased with…

  41. Kaunda was not pleased with this development. So, on 4 February 1972, he banned UPP and imprisoned 122 members of the party, including Kapwepwe. Kaunda’s excuse was that UPP was an instrument of the Rhodesian, South African and Portuguese governments, which favoured White minority rule. Kapwepwe was kept in prison until 31 December 1972. By then, Kaunda backed by strong political ties with China (The Chinese were critical of European colonial rule of African territories,therefore, sided with a number of African freedom fighters like Kaunda during the liberation struggles for independence. see Taylor, 2006 for an analysis of Sino-African relationship) had neutralized any threat that Kapwepwe could pose: the Chona Commission, under the chairmanship of Mainza Chona, was appointed in…

  42. the Chona Commission, under the chairmanship of Mainza Chona, was appointed in February 1972 to make recommendations for the constitution of a ‘one-party participatory democracy’ (i.e. a one-party state). After collecting four months of public hearings, the commission’s report was submitted to Kaunda in October 1972. The Second Republic (i.e., the one-party state) was inaugurated on 1 January 1973, the day after Kapwepwe was released from detention. Source: Wikipedia. Note Mainza Chona was used to neutralise the 1967 Bemba/Tonga alliance the same way this Hamududu chap is being used. Kapwepwe was harassed even after he had been politically emasculated. He was arrested in February 1973 for illegal possession of two guns. He received a two-years suspended sentence. The UNIP-controlled…

  43. This is very good. PF should help him establish himself in those difficult Western, North Western and Southern Provinces to split the UPND vote. Really they gave us a scare this last election! We can’t allow their votes to grow any further. Let’s set the cats among the pigeons to scupper UPND!

    Maybe, even, why not give monetary assistance to any Tonga to set up a Party that will work for national unity? Let’s have more!

  44. The UNIP-controlled Zambian media reported that Kapwepwe had sent people for military training outside Zambia. He sued the Zambia Broadcasting Services, the Times of Zambia and the Zambia Daily Mail for libel and won when he proved that they had made false reports. Source: Wikipedia
    Kapwepwe turned his back on politics and went to live on his farm in Chinsali. In the spirit of national unity, Kaunda asked Kapwepwe to return to UNIP in September 1977, which he did. To test his erstwhile friend’s sincerity, Kapwepwe stood for the 1978 UNIP’s one-party presidential nomination against Kaunda. He was disqualified by last-minute changes to UNIP’s constitution. He retired for good from politics and returned to Chinsali. He died on 26 January 1980, after suffering from a stroke two days…

    In 1991, FTJ was voted for, by 8 of the then 9 provinces of Zambia (including the Tongas, Lozis and Kaondes/Lundas/Luvales of Southern, Western and NW, Zambia except the Easterners (your so called Mbuyas/ MMD supporter were being burnt alive in their village huts in Eastern province). These Easterners remained UNIP & FDD until RB was hijacked into MMD by LPM. Your so called Mbuyas did not support Sata in 2011 except for a single seat in Chama South (now Muchinga) under Effron Lungu. Now the entire Eastern province is suddenly PF because Edgar Lungu from the East is in the seat! There is tribalism in Zambia (we are all guilty of this sad state of affairs) but the dimension this tribalism has…

  46. The dimension this tribalism & political/tribal persecution has taken under E. Lungu is unprecedented not even comparable to the treatment of Kapwepwe by Kaunda! We the people from the North have been used by these “Malawians”/Easterners at the expense of national unity & real democracy. Please leave the majority voiceless rural Bemba speakers out of the impending and self-inflicted, civil strife. Leave it to the Easterners to sort it out with the Tongas. Koswe alasuma no kuputilisha! Napwisha mukwai!

    • You are God sent. It is very sad that this day and age, we should be talking tribe? Even at places of work Tongas are afraid people. You can see it in their faces. This is very sad. Now we have children who are called Zambians because they come from 2, 3 4 tribes! Mr Hamududu is free to launch a party of his choice yes, but my question go the Registrar of Societies is, how do you allow this new party to have a name and symbol very close or almost similar to an already existing one? Let’s wait and see how things will unfold but I sense something not very okey with Mr. HIGH V.

    • I am from the North both mother and father (But I have Tonga, Kaonde and Lozi etc etc nieces and nephews), but I am extremely hurt and dissapointed with the tribal politics caused by small ethnic groups (Nyanja’s) pitching largely tolerant Bembas and Tongas against each other. We are not both perfect. FTJ using Sata to Expel “Mwana Muzuma” MAZOKA from the MMD for selfish 3rd Term ambitiions set us on this inexorable self-destructive path. There are bembas fishing in Lake Kariba and migrant Tonga farmers in Mpika, Serenje, Mkushi etc. Why should we start killing each other beacuse of belly politicians? God help us!

Lungu stole the elections then has decided to cage the winner, facts cannot change but figures can be manipulated. God is watching.

  53. PF brought tribalism on the scene starting with SATA’s appointments. They also introduced violence starting with factional fighting with Kabimba and the others – mainly Bembas – on the other side. PF has been using tribalism to discredit UPND even when HH has reached out to them. What are you talking about?

Everytime these guys are left out they either change the party or format their own, very selfish way of doing things. This one is not going anywhere kuwayawayafye!

As youths, lets change our mentality and build our Zambia.
