I have seen suffering wives, I have seen wives who get dead worried about their husband’s incarceration, but Mutinta Hichilema is giving me a make-up pretentious dispose, she is failing her husband. She is coming out like she is also a bitter politician, her mind and vision so clouded to see what works in politics, humility, kuzichepesa.
Look at this video, she has her welldone make-up and she has the strength to grant an interview to the foreign media, with all strength.
Am talking as a man – Mutinta doesnt have it as wife, let alone, as a wife to a politician, above all, she doesnt have what it takes to be a wife of a potential first lady in waiting.
I know some of you are uptight now, you could be fuming with rage. Let me take you down reality lane. As a media person, let me show you the wrong things that Mutinta is curving, which are working against the freedom of her hubby.
Now I understand why her husband has failed to become President of Zambia for FIVE times. I hold a strong view that whatever a man is going through, his wife has telling impact on it – if it’s wealth, its the wife, if its troubles, its the wife, if its failure, its the wife.
Now let me get to why am saying that Mutinta doesnt have what it takes as a wife of a politician.
Mutinta doesnt have the language of a woman, let alone a wife. She may know other things that only her husband is privy to, but for a wife of a politician, she has zero. The bitterness of her hubby has engulfed her mind to see simple solutions. She is less than 10km to where President Edgar Chagwa Lungu stays, she could have by now gone there to knock and cry for pardoning of her husband.
My loving President could have given her all the attention as she weeps before him for mercy. It takes humility to do that. But, she is stuck in the rage and hatred of her hubby, of course, the won have become one, in mind, thought and rage.
I have watched other videos on YouTube, where she is calling my President a dictator, saying no democracy in Zambia, alleging we don’t have a Zambia to talk about.
President Lungu’s wife Esther, has what it takes as wife of a politician. Vera Chiluba has what it takes, Dr Kaseba has what it takes.
In case you are still doubting in your mind that HH’s failures on the political scene is a direct failure and negative indictment on his wife Mutinta.
Alangizi or Families and Nations women must quickly rush to New Kasama and help Mutinta, she is exposing herself as a woman without the skill as wife of a politician.
Look at the video. See how she is acting up to be aggrieved about her husband’s incarceration – her eyes are dry, totally dry. So what shock is she talking about.
Now, listen to her language – wrong brutal language, unable to compel any sympathetic ear to help her cause. She is saying the wrong language on such a simple matter now made so grave and deadly.
In the video here, she is talking about GUNS – wrong language. She is trying to talk like her hubby. She is a woman, her words must come from the heart of a woman.
Mutinta started mumbling about the fact that UPND do not have guns. My question is, when one cries that I dont have food, what do you expect to be given to you? Its food. So, am I in order to say Mutinta wants suppliers of guns to UPND? Isnt she just about to join her hubby in prison, I wonder if the police got that, or may be, they have just felt pity on her, being a woman.
All she should do is make an appeal as a woman, imagine if she said this, “I am a woman, having no husband at home is a difficult thing mwe bantu. Please women, help me. My sister Esther, please I need to come and see you so that you can talk to our Republican President, who is your husband.
You understand my plea as fellow woman. Am going through a tough time. Trust me, if you do this for me, for my children, you will do a great thing for my family. I will preside over my husband when he comes out to lower himself and do what is right. Please help me talk to the President of Zambia to have mercy on my husband.”
That’s how a real wife of a politician speaks. Not this fire-burning-tongue-lashing coming from her mouth. Am now having no doubts on my mind that HH days in prison are just but starting.
HH lacks reasonable supporters with wisdom. Now I know why they have never thought of utilising the wife-woman-power to help get HH out of prison. Now I know why even their Petition was fluffed, the UPND don’t have it.
So, no one should wonder why HH has failed to make for President, Mutinta has half of the problem right on her head.
For me, I listen to the wise counsel of my wife. Though its not easy. And my wife is there for me, she is not careless on her mouth when am in problems, she is humble, hardworking and people come to help me out of trouble.
Look at her hubby. Who has come for him in terms of Presidents? When KK was imprisoned, Tanzania sent Julius Nyere, an Alder Statesman to come and talk to President FTJ.
Look at who is coming to HH’s rescue – the exploitative Anglo American and its agents. See who is coming. Its the silly opposition leader in RSA, Mmusi Maimane, and that says much about the fact that it’s business at play, not politics.
Look at the media. Who covers HH on local and international scene? Its Aljazeerah. If I delved into the depth of who owns Aljazeerah, you may just discover that HH has some shares in it.
Aljazeerah covered HH so much in detail even at UPND rallies. It HH is not an equity owner in that TV station, then they must have an intersection set regarding who sponsors them. And at the end of the tunnel, you might just see Anglo American.
We know about the regime change that the now defaced Anglo American wants to make in Sub Saharan Africa. Sorry, we now have FQM, Kansanshi and all for mining conglomerates. They went, let them be. Uwaya, ashinge chulu – he who leaves is not seen behind a mountain.
When Sata was in opposition, all the neighbouring countries’ Presidents welcomed him. For HH, its small opposition boys. Having money does not mean having appeal to reasonable logical leaders.
I know why HH and Mutinta are selling out our country as if we are at war and people don’t move in total freedom. They hold their makeshift press briefings whose intent is to demarket our country and sell out our President as a dictator who doesn’t allow people freedoms of expressions and movement.
But, the point is my beloved President, Edgar Chagwa Lungu exercised the maximum restraints when the route of travel was interfered with by HH’s motorcade.
What I know is that all Presidential security staff, the commandos and all, are detailed, through their training that once the Presidential route is laid out, and the sweeper vehicle is coming, any object in line of site must be cleared by force and that could have mean the crack Presidential force could have killed HH and all the 60 car drivers in sight.
My President stopped all that, at his own risk. If it was in the USA, by today, President Lungu could have areigned before the Senators why he drew down his window and why he stopped security from opening fire, thereby endangering the Presidency.
HH and his wife are proper Under 5, unfit for any slot in politics, not even at Ward Level. They lack normalcy and diplomacy. They are foreign agents not interested in the common man of Zambia.
You see, it pays to belong to the compound life of living. We learn humility and how to live with people.
Sata used to abuse Levy Mwanawasa, he even called him “cabbage” but when Levy assumed Presidency, declared President, Sata provided leadership to his cadres, “I know that the votes have been stolen from me. But please dont riot ro burn property. Let us go and start campaigning untill MMD is taught a lesson in 2011 elections.” Sata went back to the drawing board and five years later, he won.
In the USA, Barrack Obama castigated Donald Trump, saying he is unfit to be the US president. Obama said Trump should not be President of the USA. The moment Trump won the elections, Obama came on TV saying, “We have a new President, Donald Trump.” You see, Obama moved on. His preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, who won Obama changed his unpalatable language, he conceded defeat by the Republicans.
HH’s foolishness is what has caused him to be in this mess. Sadly, he doesnt have a wife who can give him good advice.
When the Canadian, Guy Scott removed my President by force when Michael Sata died, Lungu’s wife, Esther, just advised him to leave the seat in 2014/2015, “tili na malilo awisi Tasila, visiyeni mweo, ngati Mulungu afuna ati muzankhala aPresident, ni so chabe, you will become President.”
So President Lungu left State House seat but few months later, he bounced back. And that was Sata’s stance when he lost.
HH is in this mess because he WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE PRESIDENT and he doesn’t have a wife, or a team or advisors to take him to State House. He doesn’t take advice.
In Bemba we say, “Umwana ashumfwa, aile namashinshi kubuko”, meaning, if you dont take advice, you will go before your inlaws with feces behind your back.
HH’s coming out of prison now rests in the hands ultra-sympathetic people within the governing rank and file, not from UPND, their useless lawyers, his unthinking wife. Only mercy will help HH out of prison, nothing else. I feel very sad.
