UPND President Hakainde Hichilema

Incarcerated opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that its time that the UPND and the PF had unconditional dialogue.

And Mr Hichilema who has today clocked 90 days in jail has called on the PF government to prepare a recovery package for all Marketeers affected by the City Market inferno.

Meanwhile, Mr Hichilema says the declaration of a state of emergency is not the way to respond to the outbreak of fires.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Mr Hichilema said time has now come to put all the differences aside and work for the common good.

“If others are putting conditions, they can be left behind and let those that are willing, who are the majority anyway, convene and find solutions to problems that are affecting us as a country,” Mr Hichilema said.

The UPND leader said this is not time to be talking about Governments of National Unit (GNU) saying those terms are used for failed states.

He said the UPND will not be interested in such a government.

And Mr Hichilema has appealed to the PF government to prepare a recovery package for all Marketeers affected by the City Market fire.

He said the declaration of a state of emergency is not the way to respond to these fires.

“GBM and my sister Chama were selling Kapenta and dry fish while I was supplying meat in small butcheries there. That community is what made GBM and HH what they are today. We therefore must all do something to have that market back up again as soon as possible,” Mr Hichilema said.

Below is Mr Hichilema’s full statement

Dear Colleagues,

I am saddened and shocked at the fire that destroyed property and goods worth millions of kwacha at City Market last week. That place is special to GBM and me for two reasons. One and most importantly, our economic plan has its foundation on small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs).

The SMEs model is known worldwide as the most successful model for three reasons; first, their contribution to GDP; secondly to taxes for Government revenue collection and thirdly employment.

We can give you a whole chapter on this but for now we should stop here as we commiserate with our colleagues who lost property and goods worth millions of kwacha. Secondly and of less importance is that we started our businesses there.

GBM and my sister Chama were selling Kapenta and dry fish while I was supplying meat in small butcheries there. That community is what made GBM and HH what they are today. We therefore must all do something to have that market back up again as soon as possible.

To my fellow businessmen that have lost their goods, I can only hope that the PF government will prepare a recovery package for you, because that is exactly what we would have done, had we been in power. It is too huge an economic investment to lose through an inferno.

This brings us to the second point. The declaration of a state of emergency is not the way to respond to these fires. We have basic underlying issues like lack of tight security around our public infrastructure that could easily be attributed directly to the outbreak of these fires.

Where is the Zambia Police to guard public utilities like City Market? Look at the human resources that are being provided to guard Hakainde yet we cannot guard a public utility like City market which is more important than one individual. Hakainde. If we had a well-funded and resourced police it would serve two things.

First they will be motivated and secondly they will have the equipment and means to actually investigate all these fires to establish from where they are coming. Where the police fails, bring in National Service, if that fails bring in Zambia Army until the situation is brought under control if the situation is really a case of arson as we are being told.

Why can’t we invest money in the City Council Fire Department so that they can respond to fires on time and actually can put out fires. Declaring state of emergencies will not equip the police, it will not buy fire tenders, it will actually slow down the economy from where the Government is supposed to collect taxes to finance the police and the city council.

We need leadership in this country, we need a leadership that has depth and possess a multidimensional approach to problem solving. In our current scenario, all problems have one solution. Political.

Colleagues there are no prizes for guessing how this this declaration will be implemented, we all know what is motivating this declaration; its politics. We will come back to this subject after the measures have been announced and arrests targeted at the opposition have started.

Which brings us to the third issue, dialogue; we have been informed that there are sections of society that have been calling for a dialogue to diffuse the tension that risks to engulf this country.

It is strange that everyone seems to converge on the issue of tension and dialogue except for the PF which is coming with conditions. Without even knowing the agenda the PF is giving conditions. We have never refused to be part of any dialogue that is anchored on national interest.

This is the reason the UPND, despite being criticized, we participated in the national indaba that was called by President Mwanawasa. We participated in the NCC because we believed it was for nation building though later our friends in the MMD then changed their minds.

It’s time we had dialogue, unconditional dialogue. We are nationalists dear colleagues, these are times when we should put all our differences aside and work for the common good. If others are putting conditions, they can be left behind and let those that are willing, who are the majority anyway, convene and find solutions to problems that are affecting us as a country.

This is not time to be talking about Governments of National Unit (GNU), those terms are used for failed states. And UPND will not be interested in such a government.
The PF and UPND are sitting on opposite sides of the political ideology, how can someone even think of such a thing? For the record it is not UPND that mentioned such a thing and we are not interested.

No one person is bigger than Zambia, dialogue should thus start immediately. As UPND we are not putting any conditions to any dialogue, all we are interested in is that the country must begin to talk.

A talking country is a progressive country. Colleagues, I leave it to you out there to actualize the dialogue with whoever is interested and UPND stands ready to lead the coalition of the willing if the Government is not interested.

God Bless Zambia.
HH

In the second place, you are responsible for the economic hardship marketeers are now going through. Thirdly, you are responsible for the impending SOE. Zambia needs to be governed. Fourthly, dialogue for what apart from you realizing that its time to move on? ECL does not need your recognition but kindly don’t destruct him. Fifthly, the quest for dialogue was long made. You were called to dialogue before elections, only Edith Nawakwi and ECL turned up. Now you want to embrace dialogue? What for? What’s the agenda for that meeting, anyway? Help preserve Zambia by doing what you have always done…

You may be lucky out there where you are but @ Nsimanadelele1 I would like to borrow the last sentence “Lack of education is really a problem in Zambia.” does not only apply to Zambians at home in Zambia but as well to a few in the diaspora!

    • @Lombwe FYI Human Hyena (HH) doesn’t love the people the man is a self centred cretin that used force and violence and tri.balism to sideline Sakwiba way back in 2004 for UPND Presidency.
      HH pays his workers on his farm real peanuts-no clinic or proper housing for any of his workers yet the crook was making millions
      HH under direction undervalued ZCCM assets during privitisation making him a party to a serious crime that saw many former miners die from poverty.
      HH has deliberately seen to the loss of life of Zambians by disobeying State directives such as the Public Order Act
      The chap is a low life and a lying conman crook!

    • The UK was trying really hard to stay out Zambian madness created by Lungu’s madness. But now that Lungu has commanded the Zambian high commissioner to get UK involved, the UK will take keen interest in trying to find the truth behind these allegations against its most valued subject.

      Any way if Zambia has money to waste, let it bring it on and pay the huge legal fees in the extradition case that might take decades to come true because Larry Mweetwa has a good record in the UK. By the time Larry is given to Zambia after a judge rules against him, Lungu and most of his stooges will be long gone.

    • Kapyongo is known by the UK government as one the thug MPs who instructed PF thugs to stone a helicopter carrying the late Mwanawasa ‘s wife on board during the 2014 campaigns. Therefore a statement from a person like Kapyongo with questionable criminal mentality will not be taken serious by the UK.

      Ans 1: The PF did. Lungu and all his cronies have been putting conditions. They say UPND must first recognize Ngulu as president.

      Ans 2: Lungu just said it. He said in his address to the nation that UPND wants to have a government of national unity. They have been saying this even before Chulu declared Lungu as president.

      Now this level of dullness you are showing is what represents the brain of PF. Really sad.

    • The article still shows arrogance “GBM and my sister Chama were selling Kapenta and dry fish while I was supplying meat in small butcheries there. That community is what made GBM and HH what they are today.” The man is now trying to tell us that his riches are from city market when it is known that he stole privitisation money. GBM was a thief of army tenders and drugs. So don’t clean your money with other pipo’s suffering. Dialogue for what? Tell you s.tu.pid mps to stop misbehaving and there is no need for any dialogue as criminals are being jailed like you.

If he hasn’t then why does he want to sit down and talk to an illegitimate government? True freedom fighters have stayed in prison for up to 27 years and HH is already tired with just 90 days.

    • What leadership? This is playing to the gallery. If he is serious and wants to dialogue, he knows the channels to follow – not writing to your supporters. This note or letter is not written to the President but to UPND supporters – are these the people he wants to dialogue with? A clever politician was going to use a respectable statesman to deliver a message to the Head of State, privately. Also, if you seek dialogue, you must propose an Agenda – when you propose an Agenda, you are obviously setting conditions. When you say “unconditionally”, then you are implying that the Agenda will be generated when you meet. So, my challenge to everybody is: Will someone propose an Agenda for this dialogue? Note that if two parties to a dialogue cannot agree on an Agenda, then there is no dialogue.

    • @OneNation – ignorance at its best. This is not a meeting like the ones you hold about how to hack people or disrupt UPND. National dialogue is about issues in the country and that is the agenda. Top on the agenda is the tension in the country and how to defuse it. You in PF are saying there is no tension.

So who are you going to meet for these discussions? And in what capacity is the President going to meet with you since in your CONFUSED WORLD Edgar is NOT a real President?

So the condition is coming from PF to answer your question and you are also at the same time, re-stating the same conditionality as you give advice! Why do you then wonder as to who imposed the conditions, if not you and PF!

My friend change your political advisors and make own decisions. Your thoughts at this point are kind of coming from an educated mind not what we have received from you in the past. May be a personal word delivered by your trusted ones to the Republican President. I know you are in cells but who knows it can help. We all make mistakes, but an apology is a good weapon.

If you answer these questions truthfully you will realise that HH is doing things in Dununa reverse as has been sang before.

  21. BACK IN TIME – FLASH BACK
    SUNDAY CHANDA SAYS HICHILEMA IS A FLIP FLOPPER
    ===================================
    19th July 2016, almost one year ago Lusaka-Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has continued to show that he is a flip flopper and a very inconsistent person who cannot be trusted with national leadership. His history of flip flopping dates from the time he entered the political stage making him a very dangerous man to have in a public office and perhaps he is better off remaining in the opposition a little longer after President Edgar Lungu trounces him again in about a months’ time so that he can probably retire.

      Does Mr Hichilema honestly think we are ignorant as he is to not know a signed Peace Accord and a none signed document? We challenge Mr Hichilema to produce the statement he signed to simply ‘sonta’ and we know the answer will be NO because he did not sign it.
      He is back tracking now because he realises that his failure to sign the statement CONFIRMED for the umpteenth time to us that he has a great appetite for VIOLENCE.

      Mr Hichilema must tame his arrogance and realise that to lead a nation, you need a certain high level of discipline like the way President Lungu has.
      “He must learn from President Lungu and humble himself because arrogance and conceit will take him nowhere in this election at all.”
      We are also happy that he refused to sign the Peace Accord because…

    Its too late for your dialogue Kaili # 1.you could have done that in 2016 after losing elections!!PLEASE PF GOVNT,IGNORE HH BECAUSE HE THOUGHT HE WAS BIGGER THAN ZAMBIA!!LET HIM KNOW THAT LIFE IN ZAMBIA SHALL…

  23. When Kabila’s time was over, he began to do what this guy is doing, “Let’s dialogue!” Kabila finished his “father’s” term and completed two other terms! He now was not eligible to stand for elections, so he began saying, “Let’s dialogue!” Let us put the cat out of the bag: Dialogue on what? Oh! Government of National Unity! Wow! Losers are just as delusional as their supporters! You cannot and will not be a part of this government! Your attitude show on this blog! The court has to make a ruling on someone’s fate! You go to court and dialogue with the judge.

  25. Another blander by under5.

    1. He is saying that the reason to the inferno is lack of tight security and invocation of article 31 won’t solve the problem.

    2. Him and his stooges have been on a campaign trail telling the world that Zambia is a failed state and today he is saying they are not interested in GNU.

    3.He is appealing to govt to come up with a recovery plan for the affected but he is forgetting that he doesn’t recognise the head of the govt. What a tard this cretin is.

If you had struck this RECONCILIATORY TONE when there were LYNCHINGS,BURNING of HOUSES and GENERAL ETHNIC HATRED IN NAMWALA, some parts of Southern, Western and NWestern Provinces,one would have said “PLEASE,LISTEN TO THE LEADER”. Even if you had that Mongu incident, people would have said “HEY, LEAVE HIM FOR NOW, HE IS A PEACE MARKER” but NO,NO..! You have chosen a path of destruction where anyone who disagrees with you has to be insulted, and your supporters have been even more lethal! Can this be true that you are causing fires to force government to negotiate a Government of National Unity (GNU) like Lungu said and now you are calling for Dialogue? LUNGU has said several times, “DIALOGUE ON NATIONAL ISSUES LIKE ECONOMIC POLICIES etc NOT PERSONAL or POWER SHARING!”

  30. It is really amazing that even before the police & fire department completes their investigations and everyone is talking about opposition party being responsible. Is that not interference in the ongoing investigations?
    So what are the police supposed to investigate when even HE ECL during the press conference in response to questions clearly indicated the opposition was responsible for the Lusaka fires.
    This is my observation and following the discussion here.

    (a) The Courts must decide on HH’s fate without interference from the Executive (the President).
    (b) Security wings must exhaust criminal offences linked to fires and sabotage of Zesco installations.
    (c) Larry Mweetwa is KEY to spate of fires and sabotage activities.

    • In reference to (c), Fires do happen,its just how you tackle them.The two incidents happened within the lats 24 hours
      1.A huge blaze broke out overnight at Camden Lock Market in north London.
      Seventy firefighters and 10 fire engines were sent to the site, which is a popular tourist attraction, London Fire Brigade (LFB) said.
      A fire officer at the scene said the fire began in a building containing a number of businesses.
      2.Up to 14 people, including a child, were reportedly injured in a fire which broke out at a shopping mall in the northeast of Moscow on Monday, Emergencies Ministry sources told Russian media. Four people remain trapped in the building.

I hope the presidents Press Briefing is now firmly sinking in your head, HH. My worry, though, is your Veep GVBM insatiable appetite for violence. Damn, where did your pick that lunatic from. His language, looks and acts spell VIOLENCE in capital letters and your supporters sing resounding praise. It keeps us wondering. Change your devious ways HH. Your support for atrocious acts will not win you State House. Zambia…

Your supporters are the ones misleading you. Hh would’ve grown from under5 by now had it not being for his tribal supporters.
    In his post hh has not ruled out that the fire at market was an act of arsonists. He knows someone torched it that’s why he saying that security is porous. Am sure someone has told him Larry celebrated and encouraged for more fires.

The condition still stands baba – accept that UPND lost lamentably or should we say pants down in the last elections – thats all otherwise no dialogue. How do you dialogue with ECL if he is not the president according to you. So jere can teach people lessons ka. Continue learning boss – this is just the beginning of buying those extra senses you needed before calling for Armageddon.

    However, my suggestion is to ignore underfive for now, I think he has felt the law catching up with him and wants to forestall another arrest. Let him chill for now, let us get to the bottom of this thing once and for all, for posterity and for lessons in stu.io.dity. Let the church mother bodies chill for another month or two, let the underfive come crawling, give him a chance to learn his lessons, otherwise he will repeat the rot as soon as he is out of…

  44. More truthfully with ourselves, if underfive does not issue a public apology, let him pay for repairs of all what he has damaged and consequential losses, City market, Zesco pylons and cables, markets, DEB offices, court buildings, If he cannot pay by his money let pay in kind by “pika jele”, i.e. a jail term to do some work as a kaili. At the least since he may be broke now with lawyers bills, an apology with community service I, Terrible, can consider!!

You cant have just “dialogue”, ba underfive naimwe it has to be about something or else you will just be staring at each other. And whom do you want to dialogue with, since our President Lungu is not at your level? We will give you one or two ministers and then The President will sign the papers.

Dundumwezi have seen through your schemes, your MPs have no message for their constituencies except misbehaviour in parliament. Please let the law take its course and then talk later. You cannot behave the way you did and then say let us talk shame. Someone has tipped him that Dundumwezi has seen the bigger picture beyond Hichilema.

People have lost their income through your so called “Armageddon. It has been almost a year since his Excellency the president was sworn in, in an election all observers declared free and fair. All you did was just run in and out of court without a shred of evidence except to please your financiers. And NOW what are you going to talk about? Give us a break. Just announce that you concede defeat to ECL the only Head of state in Zambia and you must complete your court cases period.

    But who said you are?

    “We are not looking for government of national unity”

    Who said you are?

    And some of you trying to use what you think is psychology;

    “I am non-partisan, I don’t vote but this man has wisdom”, what kind of sentence is that?

    Who said seeing wisdom is a privilege of the partisan – those who vote? What are you trying to say; are you speaking to kids.

However, talking about yourself and GBM selling whatever you were selling sounds fooling people who lost their way of living.

    You are setting conditions by excluding conditions. So long you don’t accept the declaration that ECL is the duly elected President of Zambia, you have thrown an obstacle in the way of dialogue.

    The way to go is accept the declaration, and then go to court to challenge his election. If it is proven he lost, then you and us will withdraw our recognition of ECL as incumbent President of Zambia, fire the ECZ, and proceed to elect a new President, and it could be you, provided you are not barred from running again for constitutional reasons.

    And, no I am not a member of any political party, and slave to look after my family.
