UPND President Hakainde Hichilema leaving the court
United Party for national Development Leader Hakainde Hichilema plus five others have finally today the 9th June, 2017 been transferred to Maximum Mukobeko Prison in Kabwe from Lusaka central Prison.

The opposition leader has been moved by air from city airport on his 60th day in incarceration to Mukobeko Maximum prison in Kabwe, Central Zambia.

According to the UPND media team, Hichilema landed arrived at Mukobeko Maximum Prison around 12:20 hours and it is not clear why he has been transferred to the maximum prison before being convicted.

The UPND leader was arrested on 10th April, 2017 and charged with treason after the Mongu incidence where he is alleged to have obstructed the Presidential motorcade during the 2017 Kuomboka ceremony.

And the High court has since set 12th June, 2017 as a trial in Hakainde Hichilema’s petition case.

Below is the notification from the UPND media team:

This is to let you know that UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has been moved from Lusaka’s Chimbokaila prison to Mukobeko maximum prison in Kabwe, Central Zambia. Hichilema landed a while ago in Kabwe at Mukobeko maximum prison. It is not clear as to why the state police have decided to take him to Mukobeko prison which is associated by Zambians to a prison where death by hanging is called. UPND MEDIA TEAM

    • Edgar and his PF are far too scared to let the man they feat most, free. THH has no case and this is the highest level of fear exhbited by Lungu and his PF drunkheads. We shall see: time goes clockwise, crossing same point over and over

    • How clueless Vodiga Rungu and minions made HH popular and prepared him for the office of president in 2021 !!

      Be strong my brother HH, you will now know first hand who to give presidential pardon when your time comes unlike Vodiga Rungu who has pardoned unrepentant criminals who are terrorising our communities as serial killers and greedy PF cadres.

    • Stupid UPND and their media team, why saying it is not clear why he has been taken to Mukobeko when the judge clearly said that now that they have been committed to high court their status has changed to capital remandees and Mukobeko is the only capital prison in Zambia.

    • I have consistently reminded UPND supporters to realize that they have a serious crisis at hand and insults, name calling and stripping parades of vulnerable women will not turn this quagmire away. You misled HH and have kept flattering him that Zambia has no President and Government but HH. My learned colleagues Professor Ndulo, Bene, and Hansungule are worst liabilities with their theories. Chagwa has a powerful pen that can change fate in a brink of an eye. Mutinta should have ignored all these idealists and take on a negotiation mount that bellicose. There is life beyond politics. Now chances of coming out normal are 2 out of 10. This is real hardball and Good luck to delusions and allowance. I believe realism, love and respect have their way and not bellicose.

      First and foremost, is he the only one in prison, have you considered other prisoners? Or you give blind eye to the poor and support HH just because he has money? The law must be applied equally – politics should not be an avenue for misbehavior, insolence and lawlessness.

      He must be tried the same way any other poor Zambian found on the other side of the law is tried. To me, the boy HH is a pompous criminal who had potential to put Zambia on fire. The courts will be very fair in dealing with his case, if he is found innocent so be it. Am not the court, but if you asked me i would say his…

    THOUGHTS FROM MUKOBEKO PRISON

    Fellow citizens, we can confirm that we have been

    moved to Mukobeko Maximum Prison in Kabwe.

    We arrived a few minutes ago. We don’t know

    what is happening but we are not bothered by

    processes. We are only concerned about one

    thing; the freedom of this country. Our spirits are

    intact, we might look weary from the physical

    point of view but be assured that our spirits are

    intact. Let not you who are out there sympathise

    with us, sympathise with those children who are

    not in school, the over six million Zambians who

    are poor and cannot afford a meal a day.

    Sympathise with those relatives who are HIV

    positive but have relapsed because the

    Government cannot provide ARVs, those girls who

    are…

    • those girls who

      are abandoning class because they cannot afford

      sanitary towels due to financial constraints while

      Government spends money on worthless pursuits,

      essentially chasing the wind. Those and many

      others are the people with whom we should

      sympathise.

      We do not know when we are going to be

      released or if at all we will be released, but that

      is not bothering us, all we know is that what we

      are fighting for is worth for us to die if that is

      what it means. And we are not worried about

      death either, because there are a million others

      who will carry on with the fight for a proper

      democracy to work in Zambia. No one, even the

      greatest oppressor has survived the wrath of God,

      where is Idi Amin, where is Mobutu Sese Seko,

      where is Pieter…

      the law. But as we say about education, death is

      an equaliser. The persecuting champions of today

      will be the people needing help from the paupers

      of today.

      Colleagues, we habour no hatred for anyone, we

      habour no ill wishes, we are Christians, we pray

      for those that transgress us; that way we live in

      peace with ourselves and not carry hate which is

      itself a live coal that burns the one carrying it.

      shall do what is right for the country and create a

    HH’s drama may drag on for months, if not years.HOPE OUR OPPOSITION PARTIES HAVE LEARNT A BIG LESSON FROM HH’S CASE.POLITICS OF PROVOCATION,NAME CALLING,INSULTS,EVIL MUST BE STOPPED IN ZAMBIA!!ELECTED LEADERS MUST BE…

  16. An accused person can not just be transferred to a maximum prison unless there is sufficient evidence of an overt act. In the Zambian Judicial System, when the judge knows that the accused is innocent,even before trial commences, he will normally use his jurisdiction to have the accused kept in a humane environment whilst awaiting the court verdict, and if possible even bail would be granted. Therefore, in this case I think a prima facie case has already been established.

Secondly Tongas are also created in the image of God so no matter how you mock them they will never disappear from mother earth. HH is a politician like anybody else and it has nothing to do with his tribe. Dont belittle any tribe because you are not clever than God who created also the Tonga speaking people.

  26. To me the case is tilted more than 60% in favor of HH and the court is likely to discharged him .

    A crime being = Mens Rea (Intention) + Actus Reas (Blameworth deed) – Defence
    will raise the following issues:

    Did something happen in Mongu? State says yes, HH says no.

    IF state proves beyond doubt the happening of a thing, team HH will have no option but to produce a defense as to why it happened: e.g. the police did not line the route as per rule book (rule book produced); or there were too many people walking the roadside and so HH didn’t manage to pull off in time, etc.

    Intention: State will show that the act was deliberate by attaching intention. Intention is to be found in the statements made at a public meeting just prior to the act where HH and others are said to have…

      Unfortunately that’s you opinion bwana but here we are taking facts and the law. Remember whatever the verdict in this case will be, it will be precedence and if UPND have not thought about this, the better start thinking twice, HH called committed this treason knowingly and with impunity and has himself to blame. President Lungu didn’t draw up this law and those insulting him are wasting their time. Look at what is happening to former US FBI Comey and President Trump, LAW IS LAW, period.

  27. Insults and counter insults. A competition for using intelligence to think anft come with the the most vulgar insults. Is this helping mother Zambia? Is this pulling UPND down. Is this changing the direction of anything?
    I see people who get grt pleasure by insults, then they feel peaceful.. but help no one nor the situation….

  28. Mr. Kudos and Munone, please know that you did not create yourselves and that you have no control over life; its God given and temporal on earth. Whether it pleases you or not,like or not all of us will die as God already made it known. So, for you to rejoice over HH troubles is indeed tempering with the creator’s special ones ( prisoners, the sick, the hungry etc) “what so ever you do to the least of my brother thus you do unto me” so says the author of life. You may mask yourself but He who created you is able to see what you do even under human cover. It is absolutely unwise for you to mock and indirectly fight the creator. Repent while you still have time and pray for the Authorities to look unto God for wisdom, as they occupy positions of power.

  29. The Lord is faithful, i urge all the UPND and friends of President HH to stand united, this is a passing phase and i say the same to Comrade Fred and The Post, you shall be great. This is a time of preparation towards a great nation. This is our opportunity to learn more, listen more and never to revenge when the Lord brings you to front. Don’t give, stay stronger. Zambia shall be saved and become the best

  31. Let the law take its course, this chap asked for it. The law is not supposed to select and this HH is not special when it comes to the law. He should go and ask Shamwana then he will understand. Before the elections he boasted that he will make this country unmanageable when he loses the elections, and for sure he started doing that, but the law being the law it is, it caught up with him…now lets go and deal with this so called MAU MAU grouping….we shall get them like inshonkonono and put them in the same arrangement ba kwindi……

  32. Any objective and sane person will note how the state is scrapping the bottom of a barrel to try and construct a form of treason charge. No lawyer worth their salt should agree to prosecute this sham of a so-called treason case. This is all about an insecure paranoid clueless dictator trying to ‘fix’ and break an opponent. A preoccupation with self-preservation and aggrandisement at the expense of dealing with real issues that the country faces. What a waste of time and an atrocious devaluation of the tenets of democracy, justice and civilisation by the only ‘GREAT’ and ‘DEAR’ leader of the Republic of Zamunda, EC

  34. Do not generalise that you are fighting for the nation, if you were fighting for the nation you would have been obeying the laws of the land and stopped your thugery behaviour of wanting to see Zambia loose it’s long attained peace because of your selfish motives. You are fighting for your selfish ambitions to make a name that you have gotten into State house, the first Tonga. Stop laying that you want save Zambia, from what? You are failing to pay your farm workers how do you save a nation. Africa twasebana.

  35. @ Chalo Nkwanza. The Motorcade Charge was dropped by the State thru a Nolle. Can the State reinstate this Charge which is not in the Committal Certificate? Surely its only the Charges in the Certificate which which the Trial will deal with. The real objective of Jailing HH is to kill him politically so that the 2016 Election Petition dies away and HH does not participate in the 2021 Elections. We still have years to go and a lot can change between now and 2021. The biggest casualty to this Dispute in the Economy and the People. The Zambian Economy without any external financing will collapse. The HH Treason Trial has killed the IMF Loan,Loans and Grants from the West. Just like Zimbabwe under Mugabe the Zambian Economy under illegitimate Lungu will collapse under illegitimate Lungu’s…

    • Have shame and also realise that its every zambians right to have freedom of speech and that the voiceless need people to talk or air their views on there behalf not everyone is a coward like you and would lick lungu,s and his goons behinds ,we are where we are because most of our kind fail to question authority and give too much power to people we entrust to run our countrys affairs on our behalf forgetting that they are our servants.

In apartheid south africa the white man confined the blacks to squatter camps little did he know that in those same shacks where black people lived in deplorable conditions the avarage family size would grow to between 8 to 10 people and when the tables turned the black vote was 80% lungu might punish HH now but God has his ways.

  39. Too bad. I do not support lawlessness and extremism I am worried with the cost implication of flying the suspects to mukobeko.That money could have been used for other pressing issues like medicines in our clinics and hospitals.Cost-cutting measures should be seeing done by government organs in the country(Zambia) otherwise the stead increment of electricity and fuel is a total mockery to consumers. Govt has even money to fly Suspects to kabwe?? May God strengthen HH,his co-accused persons and their respective families in this trying moments though i personally do not agree with their confrontational politics.

God is able to appoint an unknown leader to excute the mandate on behalf of Zambians.. Who thought Late LPM could bounce back after resigning from govt and prosecute the very person who choose him to take over the leadership.Lesa ni malyotola.Fili uko tuleya.

People like mumba ,saviour chishimba, musenge, GBM, milupi are the real danger to HH . this guys cannot find political stamina on their own but want to ride on HH popularity. They can harm hh through their gate crushing at prison and cry the loudest with their filters on the state and eco knowing that every one will blame lungu if anything happen to president HH god forbids. After which they will position themselves as good people and an noted by HH. ECL is under pressure to make sure HH is sake and come out of prison in one piece hence the restriction on visitors. One wonders why is it that when this gate crushers visit hh in prison they always carry journalist and a ready statement. Now that HH is…

  53. its always to write comments using facts and what the laws states in the Act. no wonder when some people say Zambians no matter level of education they attained lack the knowledge to read and research because always believing what is written in the media. HH`s case is he courts of law and no one has the answer now. don’t use emotions, tribal and lack of knowledge to comment insults but spend time to consult and research before you comment brothers and sisters. Remember law is law. if you are wrong it will follow you whether upnd or pf or others. please be profession in your comments. read ?????????????????????????????????

  54. lets learn to research before we comment anything because we are misleading people. Zambian must take time think and advise others without any tribal or political affiliations. HH needs a lot of correct advise to come out of this situation. don’t give him fake advise because you want legal fees to go up or a political job. help now to think and come back to his sense. Be fair to him he could have made a mistake ask him to apologise to move on in life.

  55. To be honest you might blame HH insult him at the end of the day we are all affected in one way or the other. Ok they have transferred him to Kabwe 9th June his trial is on 12th June, are they going to fly him back to Lusaka for trial on 12th. Who is pay the cost HH, Lungu or is it you and your Children. It’s you tax payers money. The only return you are benefit is insulting HH that’s how you are using your tax you have paid to your government. Look at the big picture and think like grownup. It’s not sin to be Zambian we can change our country and make things right.
