FILE: UPND president Hakainde Hichilema

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema will spend his 55th birthday on Sunday in prison.

Mr Hichilema was on 4th June 1962 in Bweengwa village in Monze district

He is currently incarcerated on treason charges along with five other UPND supporters.

Mr Hichilema has been in police custody from April 11th 2017 when he was picked up from his New Kasama residence by a horde of riot police.

And the UPND has sent best wishes to Mr Hichilema on his birthday and wished him God’s blessings.

UPND National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango said the UPND family and millions of Zambians are greatly inspired by Mr Hichilema’s distinguished service and excellent record in all areas of human endeavours, that he has attained in all these years.

“Your determination and endearing spirit Mr President, is a great source of inspiration for many Zambians, especially our youth who look up to your entrepreneurship as a great example of achievement worthy emulating and experiencing,” Mrs Nalumango wrote.

“We wish to quote a moving testimony and tribute to you Mr President by your dear beloved wife Mutinta Hichilema when she said, “My husband’s spirit cannot be jailed in a prison cell, neither can it be docked in court, because it’s a free spirit to live freely and to be of service to humanity and to the Almighty God.”

Mrs Nalumango said ,”We appreciate you and your wife’s selfless service to many disadvantaged, weak and marginalised people in our communities across our country, through various projects you have undertaken especially in areas of education and nutrition and health.”

“We also recognise your unwavering and determined efforts to fight for social justice and civil liberties for all people, despite political hostilities and the harsh social environment that is currently prevailing in our Nation that has been caused by institutional intolerance and dictatorship.”

She added ,”May God’s countenance shine upon you, and may His grace sufficiently provide you with His protection, love, joy and peace that surpasses all understanding.”

“God bless you Mr President and Happy Birthday once more and may our Lord God continue granting you wisdom, now and in future.”

    • Fantastic wise words!
      If Nalumango was running mate in last elections, Lungu could have been a destitute today.
      55 years, so young, HH can continue politics for next 30 years.

    • Happy birthday Hichilema! We pray you will find solace and wisdom in your predicament. Wondering why your deputy Mwamba has abandoned you at the darkest hour. I ask because last week while in transit, i saw Mwamba in Congo Brazzaville around the Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza memorial. Is he a Guest of Denis Sassou Nguesso? Hope someone is not misleading you folks. Sassou Nguessor is also a Mansonist long used to push foreign interest in mineral rich African nations. Be careful.

    • @1.3 GBM HIMSELF BELIEVES IN SUPERSTITION. REMEMBER DURING THE MAILONI BROTHERS GBM SAID HE WILL USE JUJU IF SOLDIERS WITH GUN ARE NOT CATCHING THEM. I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY STUP!D OF THE WHOLE HEAP OF MINISTER OF DEFENCE (GBM) WITH ALL ARSENALS OF WAR TECHNOLOGY ON CIVILIAN INDIVIDUALS TO WANT TO RESORT TO WICHCRAFT IN THESE TECHNOLOGICAL DAYS.
      SO, IT MIGHT BE TRUE THAT GBM HAS BEEN SENT BY HIS BOSS TO LOOK FOR JUJU OUTSIDE OF ZAMBIA. WORSE PART IS ZAMBIANS BELIEVE IN ANYTHING IMPORTED- EVEN FROM DR CONGO THE COUNTRY DRESSING UP OUR ZAMBIAN WOMEN WITH SECOND g-STRINGS.

    • See why this UPND-DA alliance is a straight suicide project for Hichilema among Zambians. DA’s Helen Zille says, “the colonial legacy was not negative, it had some positive results”. See it on tweeter.

      We have opened rebuked this UPND-DA marriage organized and sponsored by Greg Mills using Mmusi Maimane as a reproach to humanity and our African dignity.

      UPND-DA alliance Project is a BID case.

      4+6+2017=20=2
      2X7=14

      In 14 months downfall of President Lungu and many of his comrades will look for refuge outside Zambia
      Most of them would not see their next birthday in Zambia
      It is destined to happen without fail.
      How I cannot see but it happening I see through the ball.

    • RELEASE HH UNCONDITIONALLY. IF GOD HIMSELF AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE TO RECOGNISE THEM, WHO IS ECL TO FORCE HH TO RECOGNISE HIM!? HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR HH, I WISH YOU GOD’S BLESSINGS AND GUIDANCE. THE HONOURABLE WOMAN OF STEEL WHOM I RESPECT SO MUCH, MRS MUTALE NALUMANGO, HAS SAID IT ALL.

    • I have followed this so called NUBIAN PRINCESS’ comments with dismay. Why so much hate? Is you life so miserable that you are only happy when you are hating on a fellow zambian? Relax, no situation is permanent. Don’t let PF make you miss paradise. So lm sure you even wear a rosary every day like Mumbi phiri or pray in tongues like pukuta mwanza but your heart is full of hate. You need God, sister

    • After a little while of analysing our opposition political Parties, I appear to be giving respect to four men who are leaders in their Political Parties and these are Hon Mulongoti, Dr Xaviour Chishimba, Mr Chilufya Tayali and Hon. Mwenya Musenge. If all the Party leaders were playing their politics as the men mentioned above, Zambia would be a better place to do politics in. Mr Tayali for example, had always been very different from Mr HH but from the time the latter was arrested, Mr Tayali has been in solidarity with HH. And the story is the same with Ba Chishimba, Ba Mulongoti and Ba Musenge. Mr Tayali even sent birthday wishes to Mr HH? omg, I like that Ba Tayali, truly. These four men are really in my heart! GOD BLESS YOU SIRS!

  1. Lungu, release the innocent man. When we say Zambia is being run by embarrassments we that. Now the so called iron lady in the chief justice position is a jelly lady. Shame on you madam for allowing all this nonse. Justice should serve to protect the truth and right in society. In Zambia, it in criminates the innocent and protects election manipulators, thugs and all types of criminals within the PF.

  4. At 55 what have been his main achievements? He has a young family, a successful business life and mentored by AKM who ensured Hh took over most board membership where AKM sat. His political career has not been without hiccups. AKM on his death bed asked hH to consider taking up Upnd mantle. He accepted but had to fight off those who had served longer. He forged a coalition front with edith and co. but that failed and later he went into bed with cobra broke away and then the rest is history. True hh may have had a nose for money but the political barometer has been hard for him to read. It has been error after error. I hope his time in prison has helped him reflected develop a new approach and put aside childishness lest he be forgotten. HBD

    • For those who don’t know HH well, let me tell you. HH is from a rare breed of people ever to walk on this planet. HH only shares this quality with people like Anderson K Mazoka, Nelson Mandela, Samora Machel, Martin Luther King Jnr, General Murtala Mohammed of Nigeria and a few others….the PF are only scared of their own shadows because once inaugurated as Repulican President, HH will call for a proper ‘ NATIONAL RECONCIALITION IN THE NATION’ and like the reconciliations practiced by the PF. He may not even arrest any PF member for political misdemeanors but he may of course punish those who have cheated or short-changed Zambians ECONOMICALLY. SUCH, WERE THE SOME OF THE TRAITS OF MENTORS.

  6. The Bible says Love thy neighbour but Christians for Lungu say hate and your neighbour. Lungu is a Sadist who enjoys to see other suffer in pain and spites HH for refusing to recognize Lungu’s illegitimate Presidency. Mr President remain strong and the work of the Devil will come to pass. Stay Blessed HH and may the Sun shine on you.

    • To the contrary, HH and UPND have shown unchecked hatred for ECL. Remember how you have been insulting ECL over the years. HH has called ECL “Chimbwi no plan”. HH and UPND should first consider their attitude before attaking others. It is only HH and UPND who fail to recognise that Lungu won the elections. Millions of Zambians and international community have affirmed that ECL won. Living in self-denial will only worsen your political misery while the whole country has moved on. PF member were involved in intense county-wide prayers before, during and after the elections while the UPND and HH were peddling insults and shunning national prayers. HH and UPND are reaping what they sowed.

  10. Didn’t realise underfive was not so handsome. He would without a doubt be handsome if he did not harbour so much hatred and bitterness. Unfortunately his bitterness results in an ugly cintortion of his face, just look at that picture, you would mistake him for a man of the darkness.

    Even Mandela, Kenyata and Castro spent time in jail for their convictions….the dictator is feeling the heat.

    Well done and God bless.

  13. @11 afro HH, you seem to understand the underfive man. I think that is an accurate description of HH particularly the bit about his failed attempt at politics, I couldn’t have put it better in such a few words. Of course I would have added the word donkey.

  14. @23 Spaka, yes the Mandelas, Kenyattas, Kaundas, Castros spent time in jail, but the analogy is far fetched. These are successful, wise, freedom fighters and leaders who cared for the freedom of their countries and not for personal or tribal pride. In particular, their struggle was not to put a tonga in State House. Please do not demean or insult the esteem of these legends. By comparison HH is just a common kaponya who ends up behind bars for stu.pidity. Why not be more truthful and pick the failed “freedom fighters” who are the correct people to liken HH to? There are many in history.

  20. Does any one have an answer?

    Suppose HH is convicted, and president Lungu decides to pardon him by prerogative of mercy.

    Will HH accept to come out of prison, or will he refuse?

    I ask because he does not recognise Edgar Chagwa Lungu as president, will HH view such pardon as valid or invalid?

    Please answer me if you know the answer. This is very important.

  22. Right now he even wishes the Republican President ECL to intervene in this matter but he can’t say it because of his foolish pride. Once convicted I know the President will intervene because of his mercy. Hillary is quite even went for inauguration but we all have heard of suspected Russian intervention of the election as compared to our clean previous election. Attending the inauguration is acknowledging democracy. Democracy is not for us blacks. Africa twasebana.

  27. Incarcerating HH for self preservation and self aggrandisement, is the beginning of the fall of the clueless PF government. History is replete with a horde of dictators who eventually fell by the wayside when their tentacles of persecution could no longer be sustained. To blinded and ignorant PF cadres, please follow your GREAT and DEAR leader peacefully into the dustbin of political history. Never to raise your ugly heads again and break the chain of civilisation.

    4. THEY MANAGED TO GET SUPPORT FROM A DISCREDITED OPPOSITION POLITICIAN FROM RSA WHICH HAS ATTRACTED GLOBAL CONDEMNATION FROM ZAMBIANS FROM THE 6.5 PROVINCES

Free him.We have other problems in the country like the growth of the economy, unemployment, high prices, high interest rates, high taxes, unbearable inflation rate.Leave HH and his UPND party only.Let him exercise his rights as long as he knows the boundary.PF work on your monetary and fiscal policies.Distribute the wealth evenly (equity).If I have a girlfriend and another man wants to propose to her, I will not intimidate that man.I will tell him that she is mine and she will acknowledge that.I will make sure she is treated well and loved so that will stand no chance.I should have respect for that man who wanted to take my girlfriend and vice versa.He will know his boundary and I will know mine.Mutual respect.This is the case between PF and UPND.PF work for the people who voted you in…

  33. THIS WAS NELSON MANDELA’S FAVORATE POEM THROUGH 27 YEARS IN PRISON.
    Dear HH,
    This is for you:-
    “Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Invictus – Written in 1875 by William Ernest Henley. (1849-1903)

    He fainted in public and now he is taking drugs to prolong his life.
    Not everyone voted for PF – Arrest those who did not VOTE for Lungu and charge them with treason
