House of Chiefs Members Meeting in Lusaka

The Mutati MMD Faction has distanced itself from the letter written by the opposition alliance to House of Chiefs and published in the Mast newspaper on Friday demanding the release of incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.

MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda said his party was not party of the opposition alliance as the person purporting to be in the alliance with other opposition parties was no longer the President of MMD.

In a letter dated 2nd June, 2017, Mr Nakacinda said Nevers Mumba who is the former party President signed the latter on in his personal capacity as the President of MMD was Felix Mutati and not Dr Mumba.

He explained that Dr Mumba who has refused to accept the outcome of the convention has taken the party to court but the matter has not been settled hence the collect position was that Mr Mutati who was elected as president at the party convention and recognised by the Registrar egistrar of Societies is the legitimate leader of the former ruling party.

“Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), therefore, distances itself from the letter written by the opposition alliance to your office which is reported in today’s “The Mast” edition No.o205in which they are demanding among other issues the immediate release of the President of United Party for National Development Mr. Hakainde Hichilema. Dr Nevers Mumba signed the said latter in his individual capacity and not as MMD President,” reads the latter in part.

Meanwhile, incarcerated UPND leader’s wife Mutinta relased the following statement to the media wishing her husband a happy birth day

55 DAYS IN PRISON, HAPPY 55TH BIRTHDAY MR HAKAINDE HICHILEMA, MY HUSBAND – MUTINTA HICHILEMA.

4th June, 2017.
_________________________

Fellow country men and women,

The Hichilema family hereby invite you in wishing the UPND President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema, a happy 55th birthday which falls today, Sunday, 4th June, 2017.

In the past, we have always celebrated Mr. Hichilema’s birthday at our residence while sharing light moments as well as discussing how he intends to provide equal opportunities for all when he forms government.

However, it is not the same this time around, as Mr. Hichilema today marked 55 days in prison and also by God’s grace reached 55 years old.

As always, we once again call on the country to solidly stand with Mr. Hichilema by wishing him a happy birthday.

As family, just like most of you out there, we would have loved to be with him at our residence and celebrate his birthday as we have always done especially on his vision of creating opportunities for all, uniting our country beyond its current disrepair, but this is not the case this time around as Mr. Hichilema has marked his 55th birthday on his 55th day in prison.

Therefore, wherever you maybe, we call on you to join us in wishing Mr Hichilema, a son of this land a happy 55th birthday.

We count each day given to Mr. Hichilema as a blessing from the Almighty, God.

Once more as the Hichilema family and indeed on my own behalf, we say happy birthday my husband, happy birthday Father and may God bless him.

May God bless you all,

And God bless our country.

MRS MUTINTA HICHILEMA AND CHILDREN.

    • How do you demand to circumvate the court of laws

      He is not being persecuted because of political causes. The persecutions are justified and they stem from the fact that he undermined the laws of the land that you and many others respect.

      Let him face the music the right way, demanding anyone releases him is ignorance, Moronic and obtuse.

      You do the CRIME, you must do the TIME

      I hold a PhD

      Thanks

    • Mushota you are the devil, among other devils like Kudos. I say so because you are heartless; vindictive, unforgiving; wishing others dead, inhuman, inhumane, unjust , un-Zambia and unsympathetic to loss of life. What happened was lapse of security systems. Ask the civilised world even South Africa they will tell you that that was avoideable if people wanted.

    • I am beginning to like Mutinta and not because I hated her. I have no reason to hate God’s own creation because then I myself will fallout of favour with my creator. Mutinta has a sober and beautiful mind and I think she can make a good leader. She looks docile but those are the qualities of an assertive person. Slow to anger but always assertive in her statements. Paradoxically, in Zambia we banish clever people so that the majority can remain in the pits with no voices at all whilst the new so called elite ruling class plunder the country’s resources.
      I urge all sober minded Zambians to rally behind UPND because PF and MMD are in a poisonous marriage that will end in a very destructive manner – mark my words.
      Can you imagine MMD clinging on to Mutati who has been hijacked by the PF…

      ………….and MMD are in a poisonous marriage that will end in a very destructive manner – mark my words.
      Can you imagine MMD clinging on to Mutati who has been hijacked by the PF to manage the national coffers? From president of a former ruling party to finance minister of a former bitterest rival? You must be joking! MMD has no relevance whatsoever. My advice to Pastor Mumba is to stir one last massive storm in MMD by joining UPND together with his many other followers and then we can drive one huge nail in the MMD coffin.

    • That was an attempt to say HH happy birthday and stay strong as the day or reckoning is soon coming. Us here in the USA are pressurizing the US government to consider Zambia a rogue country under a dictatorship. We don’t want our hard earned money going to into the wrong hands.

    • @1.9 white man.

      Thank you for helping Zambians by trying to deny lungu funds to erode democratic rights of citizens…..pleas even just 30 minutes of emails to IMF, world bank and the UN will go a long way in bringing to light lungus budding dictatorship…..if he gets western money we can say at least we tried.

    • So Mutinta is telling us that on her husband’s birthday they discuss how to create employment and opportunities for all.

      Does she mean that they don’t discuss such on any other days?

      Does she mean those are the major topics on HH’s birthday?

      This is an attempt by Mutinta to be political but she failed because she is below under five politics.

      No slight psychology whatsoever. Trying to impress some Zambians that they care about them on their birthdays.

      From her message, It might appear like all Zambians are at preschool age.

    • What is happening in Zambia is simply foolish and stupid. Felix Mutation does not head any political party. He lost being the head of MMD in the courts and Pastor Nevers Mumba won the battle of the MMD leadership. Nakachinda you are as slippery as your Mutation and this is a serious contempt of court. You two must be arrested. The leader of MMD is Never Mumbai!

  3. Lol!!!! Raphael and Mutati, it’s you guys that are illegal office holders. You guys are just PF, in the office of “MMD”. Propaganda is propaganda, truth is truth. How do you move from suspended MMD members of MMD to a convention, funded by PF and RB and install a president and other office bearers and call yourself MMD. I know Zambia has become lawless, but as soon as order is restored we will see who has the last laugh…Enjoy deceiving the blind, for now…Cheers.

      Yes it is the richest, largest “trading block”.
      Is there another trading block richer and larger ?.
      Zambia gets a lot of aid from individual countries from within the EU. memorandums among european MEPs can influence were individual countries provide aid.

      I also think France and Germany can carry the EU. they are manufacturing power houses which the UK lags far behind. The EU provides a ready market for their cars, airplanes, machinery and chemicals…

  6. Locking HH up is the worst thing dictator lungu has done for himself and the greatest thing he had done for the profile of HH.

    HH is now a household name within our borders and beyond.

    Only a negociated agrement with HH will save lungu.

    If he locks HH up more expect sanctions, if he frees HH expect a hero emerging from jail. And we all know paranoid hapless lungu can not deal with heros in a free and fair democracy.

    Again the dictator finds he is baggared if he does and baggared if he does not….that is the fate of a theif.

    Happy birthday HH.

    • I can sense shrils of panic from the kaponyas who can read who are now realising lungu needs western funds…….he can only tax Zambians to a limit….no western money will come lungus way.

      Yesterday we managed to compile a list of 21 major Scandinavian energy companies. We have sent our petition asking them to not consider investing in Zambia energy at this time as this will only help lungu and his assaults of our democratic freedoms that the scandanvians take for granted.
      We saw PF trying to woo Swedish investors….not while we are brutalized.

      Our next petitions will be to as many EU countries that have diplomatic representations in Lusaka.

      We are not peddling lies but verifiable facts of places and dates when opposition rallies and other gatherings have been cancelled , and when and where opposition leaders were banned from interacting with the public….

    • Whom do you honestly believe would suffer from these sanctions ordinary Zambians or Lungu ?

      You are practicising the politics of Morgan Tsvangirai who campaigned for sanctions and hoped to achieve a regime change in Zimbabwe .And now??

      Look at how Zimbabweans are suffering and do you honestly believe Mugabe is suffering?

      Did Tsvangirai’s strategic work? To the contrary he made Mugabe to be popular…and look at the mess that Tsvangirai created? You want to repeat the mistake?

    • Chiweme

      Morgan is a foo.l. Mugabe was on his knees when Zimbabweans were being set alight in S.A. and Botswana threatened to seal the borders with Zimbabwe. But the foo.l pleaded for sanctions relief and Mugabe survived.

      Mugabe only survives because Zimbabwe has some of the largest diamond and gold fields. Zambia has no of those and lungu would be lucky to last a year with sanctions.

      S.A. and the West are weary of dictators when they look at Mugabe. Mass migration results causing social frictions.

Support your leader with wisdom not in the name of Zambia is a democratic nation or that it’s a Christian nation even when people misbehaves.

  14. While it would be the most human thing to do, releasing HH on the orders of the president would be very unfair to HH. It’s better the case runs it’s cycle so that everyone will have a clear and free mind. There are alleged coup plotters who were pardoned by KK but up to now they are not free in society because people still believe these guys are criminals.

  15. Bloggers are brain-storming on Nevers Mumba’s claim as MMD President, when the majority of MMD members heed Mutati’s advice to support Edgar Lungu. If we consider a hypothetical assumption that Mumba and Mutati split the MMD into 50% for Mumba and 50% for Mutati, why is it that more than 80% of MMD members voted in support of Lungu? The advice to South Africa’s DA is that Nevers Mumba is an IMPOSTOR and a MOLE as President of the Association of Opposition Parties in Southern Africa.

    The presence of Mwenya Musenge at Chimbokaila to meet HH reveals his association to Army-worms consisting of Mmembe, Nchito, Guy Scott, Musa Myenye, Linda Kasonde, Kambwili, DA’s Maimane, NUMSA’s Jim that recently hatched to cause havoc in Zambia.

There is no body above the law and pliz give space for the court to dispense justice accordingly. What is so special with their leader ? The detention of our opposition leader is regrettable but he indeed deserves to be where he is now like many other millions in custody world over.

      Why are HH and GBM not allowed to greet and inter react with well wishes in places of public ???
