Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema is today Wednesday 10th May expected to appear for trial before Lusaka magistrate Greenwell Malumani at 09:00 hours.

This is in relation to the charge of obstructing a presidential motorcade and alleged use of insulting language.

On Thursday, Mr Hichilema will appear before magistrate Simusamba for the ruling on the certificate of committal to the High Court on the treason charge.

Meanwhile the UPND Media team has released the following statement to the media

HH CONSOLES THE KAPWEPWE FAMILY

Incarcerated UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has learnt with deep sorrow and sadness the passing on of Mrs Salome Kapwepwe, the dear wife to a great freedom fighter and independence icon, Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe.

Mr. Hichilema joins the family and the rest of the country in mourning the late Mrs. Salome Kapwepwe who is reportedly to have died in her sleep.

The UPND leader feels the pain of the family and the rest of the country on the untimely demise of such a strong woman who he says was one of the pillars in Zambia’s freedom struggle.

Mr. Hichilema recollected the pain in which these strong women went through when their dear husbands were fighting for the liberation of this beautiful country which due to their efforts, was subsequently united under the banner of the one Zambia one nation motto.

The UPND leader said had it not been for the situation he was in currently, he would have personally been part of the masses in joining the family to celebrate the great history of a such powerful woman who helped shape Zambia.

On his own behalf, the great UPND family and the rest of the masses, he sends sincere condolences and joins in praying to God to comfort the family in such trying moments.

  1. As leader of the party he takes the fall for the unruly behavior of the party cadres.Trump is taking the insults even hate mail.His FB page has liberals insulting him every day 24/7.They do not even hide behind pseudonyms like Nez.Now we adopted democracy,we should get the all package of democracy.There is no such thing as partial democracy.President should be made to sign a paper that will say I the president will be torelant and will not be provocked or arrest anybody who provockes me.

    • If this lazy Bum in State House was Mwanawasa or RB and Sata was in opposition spewing those insults…the coward Lazy Lungu would have shot him and then add the Post as well fighting him on one side. He is lucky UPND is a party of full of predictable busy fooools with no strategy.

    • The charge will not stick. Watch and see. For God’s sake, release the man and stop wasting government resources. You have nothing to hold him on. Why not concentrate on criminal cases like Keith’s who allegedly murdered a poor security man? Rotten nation with decayed moral values

    • I want to inform peace loving Zambians that lets all come together and pump sense in Lungu.We all need peace.I tested the security around Lungu last week at the Agrictech exhibition in Chisamba I was just a few meters from Lungu with a Gun in my worksuit if wanted I could have killed the man and allow my self to be shoot dead all for HH and oppressed Zambians.Lungu should know that he is not protected.The Zambian police are ill equipped to protect him not even the soldiers.It is God who is still lenient on him.Once again fellow Zambians let unite against this dictator and allow God to remove him peacefully.

    • IMPECCABLE SATIRE – WORRY ABOUT YOURSELF
      =============================
      How ironic. It is amazing how HH plays around somber moments to try and gain some political mirage. Exaggerated sympathy! This is not HH otherwise the real situation of correctional service is at play here. Since when did HH cross to the other side of the isle to offer an expression of sympathy to the deceased? HH’s real nature is that of a stone-hearted, subjective and corrupt individual not fit to be president.
      Satire at its impeccable best.

  2. Just release the man, why lock him up for so long. We all saw the video. He did nothing wrong plus the motorcade did drive past his. Lungu what goes around comes around. Those laughing with you now will turn their heads when your time comes. Nothing lasts forever my friend.

    • HH is rich and powerful you cannot compare him to Lungu. When HH talks his voice is deep and refined not Lungu’s, and HH thinks big, not Lungu. With Lungu ministers just misbehave anyhow. But with HH ministers can deliver because all of them are very educated unlike PF ones. This country can do better with HH, he has solutions to every problem the country faces and will face. Clearly he has a vision for this country- to sell it to Anglo Boers!

  4. HH is truly a mad of God. In spite of his own pain and suffering at the hands of the Devil he has found it in his heart to console the Kapwepwe Family for the loss of their Grand Mother. Those in State House illegally cannot hope to enter the Kingdom of Heaven while persecuting others on politically motivated grounds. Dictator Lungu should release HH unharmed ,unconditionally and drop the trumped up Treason charges. Let the Petition be heard in an Impartial Court. Period.

      You wanted to write man, but because the man is mad, You described him as such.

    Its in interest of the Kapwepwe’s that you are in that situation otherwise you would have politicized the funeral as you have been doing in other instances.
    Coming to the court cases – let justice prevail.

  6. Dream on the charges have not been down graded for if there were he would be bailed out treason charges still stand those can only be heard by the higher courts so he maybe granted bail as a sick joke because treason will keep him locked up. So more preliminary issues today as well

  8. How do you get blocked when you are coming coming from behind and the left lane is clear on a narrow terrible road which which you have failed to improve as illegal president. Why not build build a better road so that next time you can have enough space to manoeuvre. Lungu is upset because he was booed. Lungu is a childish silly rat.

    • NEZ watch the video and see how this criminal refused to give way even when a police vehicle was trying to get him off the road. Listen to those insults from the useless security clinging on the vehicle. Look at that f00l directing the hh vehicle to the middle of the road even when he knew the on coming vehicle was presidential. On this one I see a conviction and your f00l will rot in jail. By the way the Treason is awaiting committal to the High Court. So he stays in chimbokaila for further lessons on respect

In my dream I saw confusion at Mukobeko and I so men in Green all over Kabwe and Zambia. HH was free and Lungu was no more. Brethren lets pray for Lungu to enter no le or else he will be disgraced by Hand of Jehova.

    By the way are you or your tribal donkeys aware that she was a bemba? Didnt you once refer to that cultural grouping as bemba monkeys in a maize field? I dont remember you apologising or withdrawing that statement. We dont need you at the funeral of our mother. Just trying to make political mileage out of a funeral, you heartless masonist.

  13. Please Upnd caders avoid insults if you have to see HH out of prison. What happened was wrong and a true Christian should condemn it. But in Zambia we have supporters who are blind. How do you expect God to intervene when someone does not want to admit his falt. His supporters imsulting people showing tribalism.
    Humility goes before glory and pride goes before….
    The bible says we should commit whatever we do to the Lord and our plans will succeed. If HH wants plot one it is a good move. But let him commit himself to the Lord and his plan will succeed. To all Upnd supporters cool down brothers and sisters God knows very well your hearts. And God can not allow some people with perverted hearts to rule. Humble yourselves you will see the hand of God. To the government learn to govern…

  17. Please bloggers do not bring the name of the church SDA and God in politics. Read your bible from genesis to Revelation and show us where democracy is in the case of Zambia’s president in 2021 .God’s rule is called theocracy (rule by God only ).
    We all talk about democracy as something very good but has democracy solved mankind’s problem like old age, sickness, crime, death, hunger , human rights, poverty ,racism , war??????.No earthling man can do that, he or she may have good intentions but has no power to do that. Only King Jesus can do that.So please lets not talk bad about the church because of one individual politician.Am not the SDA member though.

  18. Its only in Zambia where a Passenger in a motor vehicle can be jailed for allegedly letting his Driver obstruct the Presidential Motorcade. HH was not the Driver of the vehicle There were 100 cars in HH’s Motorcade so 100 Drivers should have been arrested. There were other cars driving on that Road so those Drivers should also have been arrested. Its all a Set Up job to find an excuse to arrest and keep HH in Jail on unbailable charge. Lungu is abusing the Police and the Courts to punish his opponents. Its not a crime to Petition Elections and to refuse to recognize an Election Thief as a Legitimate President. Lungu should just release HH unconditionally and allow the Petition to be heard by an Impartial Court.

  19. Thanks Boyd choongo, am sure some comments are from school boys who don’t even understand who HH is. They basically write for funny of it or deliberately miss lead those who don’t understand the cause.
    The world us watching us. Let the judiciary be level and equal in handling such cases. Fear not one but God. Judges swear not to be impartial in their judgements. Not the earthly influence from those in power may exercise and exert. We as Zambians; some are looking while others are watching.

  20. ADDING SALT TO AN INJURY , why is HH allowed to issue statements in Correction when others such as OBVIOUS MWALITETA, TAYALI , EVEN KAUNDA SATA , NEVER ISSUED STATEMENTS IN PRISON , why is he treated special? But he looks good in that car as a passenger. KEEP HIM LOCKED AND ON 24TH OCTOBER , PASS THE JUDGEMENT FOR LIFE IMPRISONMENT OR DEATH PENALTY (HEAT CHIBWANTU AND MABISI , USE THE STEAM TO SUFFOCATE HIM)

We do not make political capital out of a somber death as this is a dignified departure not left to those that taunt leadership.

As for Mushota’s comments above, please stop masterbating on this site and showing off your diminutive ERECTION, it stinks like fish here every time Mushota exposes her ERECTION. And it’s in order that HH sent a message to the Kapwepwe family because what HH is going through is what that Malawan devil masquerading as a very good man Kaunda Buchizya did to Simon Kapwepwe. I will never forget the site of Kapwepwe on the canvass bleeding profusely from the nose and mouth at Kamwala market after being assaulted by no other than Sata and Rupiah Banda.
