People praying for HH's release
People praying for HH’s release

Hundreds of people on Monday afternoon attended national prayers for the release and good health of opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema and other political prisoners.

The prayers were held at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka.

And Mrs Hichilema’s wife, Mutinta shed tears during the prayers for peace and unity.

Mutinta, could not hold her tears after Bishops and Pastors preached and joined in prayers with members of the public that Mr. Hichilema has undergone the most painful political treatment in the country.

Mrs Hichilema who was also prayed for by Bishop Chihana and other Church leaders, was later seen aided to walk as she kept on shedding tears in Church.

Several other political, non governmental organizations, and members of the public could not hold their tears and joined in solidarity with Mrs Hichilema.

Mr. Hichilema was arrested and is in prison on treason charges.

He has today, clocked 35 days in prison with five others.

If convicted, Mr Hichilema will be sentenced to death by hanging or slapped with life imprisonment.

Facts before the court are that Mr Hichilema whilst acting together with others did plan to usurp power and be received like a President at a traditional ceremony in Western province and that he did blocked a presidential motorcade.

He has however been acquitted through a nolle prosequi on the case of blocking a motorcade which the state had earlier joined to the treason charge.

  1. PF have given HH a free slate for beating them handsomely come 2021. Talk of short sighted plans back firing…..this is a classic example. When wicked rule people cry and when the righteous rule people rejoice.

    • What is the point of praying for someone that has endengeared all Zambians.

      These churches needs to be shut down.

      This is hypocrisy.

      So we have now started praying for criminals ? Ok!

      I just completed my PhD.

      Thanks

    • Mushota and your think-alikes, yesterday’s prayers were received by the Almighty God, that i can assure you. God herself/himself created ‘man’ in her/his own image. Wait and see what the DISINTEGRATION of the PF Party and its Government before the end of 2017! God is God and she/he does not work in confusion, blasphemy or hypocrisy being practised by the PF. WAIT AND SEE FOR PRESIDENT LUNGU HIMSELF WILL STAND ON THE SALUTING DIAS BEFORE ZAMBIANS AND APOLOGIZING TO MR HH BECAUSE THE BAD SEEDS INFLUENCING MR LUNGU, LIKE YOU MUSHOTA, WILL BE FLASHED OUT. AGREABLY, I KNOW THAT MR LUNGU IS A HUMBLE MAN AND HE MEANS IT WHEN HE SAYS IT, BUT WAIT AND WATCH GOD’S ACTIONS AT WORK. ZAMBIA WILL SOON BE ADMIRED AGAIN BY ALL AND SUNDRY IN THE WORLD. SADLY, THIS IS EXACTLY THE CONFUSION THAT PEOPLE…

BUT GOD HAS REFUSED AND SAID NO, NOT ZAMBIA! WAIT AND SEE THE AGENTS OF MUGABE AND MUSEVENI IN ZAMBIA LIKE FRANK BWALYA AND KENNEDY KAMBA, WILT TO THE POWER OF GOD!

    • Sinono you are a very angry man, i hate men like that

      Here is my Question to you:

      Do you forgive Mailoni Brothers for the crimes they did to Zambia?

      Here is an answer I am expecting from you, NO because the are criminals who killed people.

      Having a PhD, her is my caution and reminding you of, do you know that Treason is worse than Murder?

      In England and US, Murders get anything from 15 – 27 years to death penalty, TREASON is an executable offense!!

      HH’s allegation are worse than Mailoni Brothers

      Thanks

    • Yes Mushota, if you have obtained your Phd, i obtained mine probably when you were still a child and i got in France. However, i agree with you that Treason is worse than murder and i do not advocate for those who have commited such a felony. BUT DID HH COMMIT THAT FELONY? WHEN HAS A TRAFFIC OFFENCE BEEN A TREASON? READ MY POSTING PROPERLY. THAT IS WHY I SAID PRESIDENT LUNGU PERSONALLY, IS A HUMBLE MAN BUT THOSE WHO SURROUND HIM ARE QUESTIONABLE. YOU CAN TELL FROM THE CONTRADICTORY STATEMENTS THE SO-CALLED STATE WITNESSES ARE GIVING THAT HH HAS NOT COMMITED ANY TREASON. WHY HAS THE STATE ENTERED A NOLLE PROSQUE EVEN ON THAT TRAFFIC OFFENCE MADAM MUSHOTA AND STILL MAINTAIN THE SAME WITNESSES WHO WILL EVENTUALLY GIVE THE SAME OLD STORY. YES YOU ARE RIGHT THAT IN THE USA AND UK, TREASON…

    • They should be THANKING GOD that nothing SERIOUS happened on that day in Mongu.

      Because, the Security Wings could have reacted and fired on HH Convoy and Fleet of his cars. HH behaved very provocative endangering his own people and himself.

      Mutinta be strong. Your hubby brought this on himself. Where is Mmembe, Masebo, GBM, Nevers & Scott to render support.

      DR Canisius Banda, former Vice President of UPND has put very correctly in today’s media

      QUOTE: ….
      “”” DR BANDA SAID THAT, AUTHORITY FOR LEADERSHIP IN THE UPND WAS OVER CENTRALIZED AND THAT ALL POWER WAS WITH MR HICHILEMA. “””

    • Free advice to Lungu.If you want to save your face realese HH now under no le and put him under house arrest.If you don’t do that the courts will acquit him he will be free and you will loose the opportunity to save your face as God fearing president. This will cost you not only the presidency but your freedom of conscious for life.You may die a miserable death as a lonely former dictator president.

    • I entirely agree. PF has no capacity to think strategically. Their mindset is all about buying influence and when it comes to clear strategies; zero. They were focused on punishing and humiliating HH without knowing this would define their downfall. The international media has hit them hard. The Carte channel 101 on Sunday discredited the PF maneuvres over HH. Emmanuel Mwamba has protested thinking PF can close South African media over the report the way they did to the Post. This is your downfall guys. Is this the kind of thinking leading the country. Are we serious?

    • Why is Mutinta crying? She was predicting a volcano and bad things to happen to Zambia just as her husband has brainwashed her to behave.
      she needs to drink alot of water because she will be shedding alot of tears before her husband is released in 2022. Bye!

  2. This is indiscipline of the highest order.
    Are these Christians for HH? Let the courts remain focused on the case – the idea is to maintain a firm grip on justice by pressing real hard on HH neck.
    Meanwhile HH will remain in prison until next week – this is good news.

    • @ independent observer you have spoken wisdom. Its only God’s intervention through president Lungu, thus we even see Br HH, this time we would have for gotten about him and the entire people he was with on that day. This shows how truly a christian nation Zambia is, its not just a mare talk but in character and action, thumbs up to the president.
      My advice to Mrs hichilema is that do not be deceived by these false churches mama you are brought up and grew up in a true church of God. Don’t be arrogant to the government and other than seeking advice from false churches, I would rather direct you to the book of 1samuel 25 and be like Abigail. Nevertheless I wish HH good health and God’s will upon him and his family. May God bless Zambia and his excellence the president of the republic…

Tell us why HH was arrested in the first place and why is he still prison if the case of blocking the presidential motorcade was discontinued?

    • hh was arrested because he is a bu.f.foon!! His tribal and childish political antics is what we the majority Zambians who voted for PF and ECL don’t like. That is why come 2021, we are voting PF again, DUNUNA AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Stop commercializing God and Stop using God when you know that you playing games.

    How many people are in prison and how many of you organization prayers for them or even visit them?

    Is HH above all other Zambian prisoners ?

    This is one way of interfering with the court processes. This should not be happening at all.

    • Point on. We have two kinds of law one for the poor and one for the rich.

      Thousands of people are languishing in prison and no one is talking on their behalf.

      I have never heard in my entire life where the DPP issues a committal certificate and rules on preliminary issues and way forward. Thousands have been committed to the high court and all I hear is the magistrates explaining the charges to the accused and magistrates say that they have no powers to tria the accused.

      And now seeing so called men of God praying for release. This are calculated moves.

      It’s not how straight one is in Zambia, but how much money one has.

    • VERY GOOD POINT. RESPECTING AUTHORITY IS ONE OF THE BIBLE TEACHINGS. LACK OF RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY IS NO LESSER SIN. HH AND UPND HAVE NEVER RESPECTED AUTHORITIES IN ZAMBIA APART FROM WHITE PEOPLES’ AUTHORITIES AND THIS IS EVIDENT BY WAY HE RUSHES TO REPORT TO TRUMP TO DEAL WITH ECL. IN SHORT HH HAS DEEP-ROOTED INFERIORITY COMPLEX OVER WHITE PEOPLE. HE THINKS ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE ANGELS. DON’T GET ME WRONG. I AM NOT SAYING WHITE PEOPLE ARE BAD. BUT, LIKE ANY OTHER RACE ON EARTH ARE NOT ANGELS.

  6. PRAYERS HAVE BEEN MIS-INTERPRETED IN ZAMBIA. IT’S HH TO PRAY FOR HIMSELF. THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD JEHOVAH IS A ONE-TO-ONE. SALVATION FOR A DAD DOES NOT AT ALL MEAN SALVATION FOR HIS SON OR VICE VERSA. IF HH IN REALITY IS A CRIMINAL BUT HE IS FOUND TO BE INNOCENT THROUGH THE ALLEGED POWERS OF PRAYERS THEN ZAMBIA AT LARGE IS PUT IN DANGER BY THIS ‘DANGEROUS CRIMINAL’. THEREFORE, THE DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW MUST BE LEFT TO FREE OR INCARCERATE HH FOR A SAID TERM. OKAY, IF IT’S MONEY DONATION THE CATHOLICS ARE LOOKING FOR, IT’S FINE, THEY CAN CONDUCT A FUNDRAISE FOR THE CHURCH.

  7. Zambians stop foolishness , learn to think beyond political patronage, God is good judge
    and he controls all with fairness and only he knows the truth about all what is going on . So note that the bible even asks us to pray for our enemies and that is biblical. Also note that the Church and Christianity is not selective at all, also God promote and disappoints , so for those in power let them use wisdom and fair judgement in all they do , rest God shall disappoint them , that is how God works .

    Look at RB , even when he lost he at first refused to step down and we got that intelligence very well , so let him at just go to sleep and this is our country , therefore advising all political parties in Government and Opposition lets be wise and accountable in all we do all the time and…

  13. The Church was not not supposed to be hypocritical. How do u encourage anarchy in a peaceful country like Zambia ? Upnd has no respect for govt and the church has failed to condemn them. If Zambia is on fire even the freedom to worshipp will not be there.So lets not be taking sides as Church for economic gain.

  26. Bishop Chihana,Nevers Mumba and others are known upnd cadres.those prayers for HH could have been appreciated by many Zambians if respected bishops such as Imakando,Joshua Banda,etc attended.
    Besides,what was Mutinta Hichilema crying for?why is her husband HH practices do or die politics?you say HH is rich,why cant he enjoy his money in peace than wanting to be president by all means?
    Mutinta Hichilema you can cry whole day but only those in 3.5 provinces will sympathyse with you!!!MAJORITY OF US ZAMBIANS ARE NOT CONCERNED AT ALL BECAUSE HH HAS BEEN A GREAT DANGER TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY DUE TO HIS POLITICS OF PROVOCATION,TRIBALISM,HATRED,ETC!!!HONESTLY,I WOULD PREFER PEACE TO HAVING A DANGER HH IN SOCIETY!!

  27. Proper hypocrisy at work here! Where were these people when HH’s followers were busy attacking non UPND members in their strongholds after elections, where were these people when HH’s followers killed PF supporters on several occasions the most recent being at Kamwala market? Let’s be fair and balanced here HH has been treated as Humanely as is possible, he is being given preferential treatment compared to other inmates, the same courts that he insulted have been ruling in his favour! What a bunch of hypocrites these people who are just his mindless supporters are! Ultimately HH may be released as Zambia is real democratic nation and under PF we have seen proper freedoms and absolutely no extrajudicial killings unlike the case under FTJ (HH’s mentor).

  34. This is Hypocrisy of the waste kind, when the president declared the day of national prayers, no one from UPND have been coming. Today stiff- necked people out of their selfness calls for prayers and every shallow minded person goes there, to do what? If they have been turning down to pray for the nation why should they turn up in numbers to for an individual? God forbid and because you have done this God will never answer. Isaiah 1:15. As my God liveth before whom I stand you will see what God will do to the organizers of this blasphemy.

POOR PEOPLES SHOPS WERE BURNT BY UPND AND NO SUCH PRAYERS WERE ORGANIZED THE POOR MARKETEERS ARE LANGUISHING.THE MAN INSULTED AND DISOBEYED THE TRAFFIC RULE DELIBERATEY AND NONE OF THESE PASTORS HAVE REBUKED HIM.YOU ONLY PRAY FOR THE RICH MAN AND NOT THE POOR.

  36. I am really disappointed by the weak written communication skills of some people who claim to be PHD candidates or have their PHD signed and sealed. I am left to wonder how they wrote their manuscript. I would like to have a look at their proposals and final thesis. Having supervised post graduate students, I can tell you that most, if not all of these chaps would not make the grade. They are simply not postgraduate material. I hope they are not just masquerading as PHD candidates or PHD holders; but this is my assumption.

  37. I have a feeling Lungu will be brought down by the people through the church. The church in Zambia is very powerful and they can bring down a dictatorship regime without throwing any stone… and Lungu and his minions know it. Ever wondered why every person or organization, locally or abroad, who has criticized the illegal arrest of HH has been met with the vile and uncouth and foul language of one PF deputy SG Mumba, with the exception of the Catholic church.

    • You forget the salient fact that majority of Zambian voters did not VOTE FOR HH last year – simples! As people have said, you were mocking a national day of prayer last year manje lelo ma pemphelo ya wama so that Mutinta can cry crocodile tears! Just how many times does HH have to lose to convince you fanatics that the Zambian electorate does not want him? Lungu enters state house on his first attempt and you claim the Zambian people will rise against him! In your dreams mate!

    • Mate what facts do you have that make you come up with wild claims that the majority Zambians didn’t vote for HH? The so called elections results were disputed by HH due to alleged manipulation of the results. To date the petition was never accorded a chance to be heard in a court of law.

      And even with allegedly stolen elections, last I checked there were only a few hundreds votes that separated Lungu and HH (I think it was something like 50% against 49% plus margin of error). So please be objective and stop making wild unsubstantiated claims.

      As for national day of prayer, I don’t have any informed opinion on that. But I didn’t think they are the same things. Also I didn’t think HH is the one who organized these prayers from prison, or did he? In any case, I don’t believe in…

  38. You see one surprising thing here is that this case is not affecting HH but the whole country. Mushota and the PF goons, wait until your relative is oppressed by the state then you will be like the boy who cried wolf but it will be too late cause you helped in a creating a monster. Look beyond HH and think of your kids, and your kids kids would you allow such a pathetic case to be slapped on them? Lets call a spade a spade and not a shovel.

    Zambia is bigger than a political party nor an individual, we had the Great FTJ, KK etc now they are just part of the history books, if I were you Mushota I would urge EL to start creating a legacy like what Levy did and not go down as the most detested presido in history.

It’s no wonder Zambians don’t take politicians to account because of their timidity of the so called ‘respect’ and those in the ruling party feel like they are small gods who need to be worshipped.

    First of all, it’s the politicians who should fear and respect the ordinary citizens and not the other way round. Politicians work for the people and must respect the people.

    2nd if you want ‘respect’ as a politician, then go and become some traditional chief or village headman. We are practising Western democracy and look at how Obama was insulted everyday, or David Cameron or even the clown Trump.

  41. HYPOCRITES. WHAT KIND OF PRAYERS WERE THESE FAKE PRIESTS EULOGIZING AT THE CATHEDRAL? WHERE DID THESE PRIESTS STOCK THEIR CONSCIENCE WHEN UPND CADRES MAIMED AND KILLED INNOCENT PEOPLE IN KASAMA, CHONGWE, NDOLA AND LUSAKA during the pre and post elections in 2016? Would it be that the welfare of the rich is more important than that of the poor who were slain by UPND. I have to think twice before setting foot in some of these Churches that preach fake sermons.

  42. Just hung in there my sister Mutinta in the knowledge that your husband is innocent. When our late Mrs Salome Kapwewpwe’s husband was being hounded by the colonial rulers of Northern Rhodesia for seeking justice and fair play, history tells us she and other women in similar position, went through a very difficult time. Little did they know then that they were being taken through the ‘University of Life’ and prepared for the responsibility to come. The Almighty God carried her through according to his will.
    You are going thru a difficult time. But you can look up to people like Mrs Kapwewe and take a leaf. The Almighty God will carry you according to his will and prepare you for the future.

  43. HH is SDA but the SDA Church refused to allow prayers to take place in the SDA church building.
    Has HH and group changed their religion?

    Is it because the SDA church failed to teach HH good behaviour?

    Our prayer and every normal Zambian’s prayer is that HH realizes that Zambia is bigger than him. Let him start afresh and realize that Zambia is the only country we have, else where we will be refugees. His Armageddon project has failed because God was not in it and for it.

  44. Well meaning Zambians should continue to pray for HH that he comes out well and strong to continue leading UPND. Also God’s direction is cardinal upon him as he comes out. Our national leaders must also be prayed for as they lead this nation. If God is in control, we don’t expect oppression in our nation to be method of rule.

    • Continue leading UPND with the democratic deficit of having no convention for more than ten years! And you wonder why he keeps losing. I guess that is why you have to convince yourselves that the election was stolen.

  45. Am not surprised at the purported prayers for a person who is so bitter with the loss. Only those pastors who where promised jobs attended this prayer meeting. Most of the attendees am sure are UPND cadres who had to find a way of assembling. they just had to find a way of being together in the name of prayers for their vanquished PRESDO.
    Am wondering why they never prayed for him to accept the defeat? Lets not put our God to test. Just look at the picture, very few individuals went to waste their time there.

  46. Pastor Nevers Mumba and his clergy friends must realise that as long as they don’t have love in their hearts towards other people who don’t subscribe to their political ideals, they cannot cheat the all mighty God with those one sided prayers tilted to the Supreme Leader HH of the UPND leaving out thousands languishing in the prisons…for God does not know the status of the person but treats all equally…The onus is on the Supreme Leader HH of the UPND to repent his sins and apologise personally to those he insulted who were on duty if at all he did it because a Judge on earth cannot save you in heaven and it’s only one lawyer whom we must trust and that lawyer you don’t even have to pay him anything apart from only following what he teaches us and his name is JESUS CHRIST…

  47. Actually we started praying for our leader HH way back immediately he was arrested,breaking chains of accusations against him.And it has happened as we prayed.there is power in the tongue and God hears prayers of righteous people.We have prayed and fasted for HH in our homes and we
    will continue.

  48. The answer to prayers is a no brainer. God will only answer prayers for HH if He is asked to reform HH and turn him back to the ways of God, including respect for authority and civility in his behaviour. The things that God wants His child to do in his life on earth are clearly spelt out in the Book of our Lord, the Bible. Any prayers outside the boundaries of the Bible are sinful in the eyes of God and you UPND will be wasting your precious time as you will be mocking God. You could even reap more painful times for HH and Mutinta, God forbid!

  49. I thank God for the organized prayers for HH. oUR COUNRY IS UNDERGOING OPPRESSION but God is on the throne.Christians do not rejoice seeing their enemies being persecuted.God says if you dont forgive how do you expect God to listen to you. Learn from South Africa which is so democratic because of strong democratic institution.Zuma is insulted etc by opposition and they even use government media to tell him off but he has never hit back.We are losing the democracy we fought for during Chilubas time. The association with Musebeni and Mugabe has influence on our countrys dictatership tendencies we are experiencing.God save our nation.

  52. Why waste time praying when all you people can do is protest peacefully, petition donor countries to freeze foreign aid and ask Edgar Trump Lungu to release HH and stop these fraudulent and laughable charges.

  54. The point is whether prayers work or not, a human being has been incarcerated for nothing and treated appallingly by one of the most primitive parties, President and his cadre officials.
    More appallingly is the fact that some of you here and some Zambians out there have shown unbridled ignorance about how the cascade of desperate self-preserving political actions leads to dehumanisation. There is also a clear link between bad governance and stifled development or the lack of it – the little resources created do not trickle down to the relevant spheres of human endeavour but only feed capricious selfish rulers gathered in the trough. Be warned, those of you who refuse to learn and are complicit to this persecution that when they finally come for you, there won’t even be anyone to…

  56. Ba Upnd Lungu cannot release HH because that would be tantamount to interfering with the courts. It would be different if the chap was detained without trial. The chap has had to cases go in his favour so far so let’s wait and see the way the other cases will go. If indeed he’s sentenced after being found guilty the Lungu can step in. But as of now the power lies with the courts. In fact if Lungu had power over the courts he could have challenged the out come of the first two cases.

  57. Why pray for someone who does not even know God or go to church. If he does why is he always gala venting on Saturdays being an elder has we have heard? Lesa afwa uyafwa. Those who knows God are seen by their deeds.

  58. Jehovah our God is greater than pf and its leaderships. I’ve always said that the great (pf and Lungu) shall be humbled, the humbled shall be made great, the first shall be the last ones.Pf should wait for God’s great day. Lungu is not even great but just being misled. PF can fool people and not God. If the leadership of Lungu is according to God’s will, let us wait and see. God is Love. He who loves God must love his brother first. If u dont then u are a liar. Romans 13:1 is not a stand alone or complete version about a government put by God. Stop understanding the bibl e in a short cut form without cross reading other books in the bible. Stop being blind christians. Holy Ghost fire will wipe out PF completely.
