Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has said that he has noted media reports linking incarcerated United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema to calls for unconditional dialogue.

This is according to the statement released to the media by the PF media team

Mr. Mwila has observed that while the alleged statement on dialogue was pulled down from Mr. Hichilema’s Facebook page moments after it was posted, the ruling Party would give it a benefit of doubt.

“It is not within our powers to determine whether he did issue the said statement or not although it had been posted to his page and later pulled down. Considering it was later pulled down, Zambians may wish to ask whether that action on its own confirms the flip-flopping the Opposition is accustomed to”, Mr. Mwila observed.

The Patriotic Front Secretary General who reaffirmed that the ruling Party has remained committed to dialogue with all stakeholders, including the Church, Opposition Political Parties, Business and Civil Society, including the Co-operating partners stated that there can never be any fruitful dialogue without known agenda items.

“Our position as the Patriotic Front is that there can never be any meaningful dialogue without clear agenda items. In other words, there is always going to be one non-negotiable precondition to any dialogue – the agenda. Let our colleagues inform us and the public the specific agenda items otherwise it is not in anyone’s interest to have a talk-show guised as dialogue. This is also because a day after the said statement was posted, UPND Vice President for Administration GBM issued conditions and we seek to know if indeed the agenda item to be discussed is Mr. Hichilema’s release because when it comes to that, the President’s hands are tied as the matter is before the Courts of Law. So, once we have received the proposed agenda items, we can then state our position”, he has observed.

According to Mr Mwila, the statement departed from what has been UPND’s message to the international community about Zambia’s statement of affairs.

“In the same statement Mr. Hichilema is reported to have denied Zambia ever being a failed State. This is contrary to what his Party’s social media platforms have been reporting. It was widely reported prior to the August 2016 elections that one of UPND’s reason for announcing their unpreparedness to accept defeat was part of their strategy to create a destabilised atmosphere to justify a Government of National Unity (GNU), a strategy the PF Administration said was a misplaced call and an exercise in futility, ” concluded the statement.

  1. As a ruling party, I find it senseless for you to ask for an agenda when you should provide leadership. If you want the agenda to come from UPND, then you are not ready to agree to meet. Liars!!!

    • I was also surprised to read that Zambia is not a failed state by hh when all along he has led a campaign to discredit Zambia. I doubted if indeed hh authored that article.
      Anyway he is in our armpits for now.

    • Dialogue with THUGS is a waste of time. The only language they understand is violence & war.

      Surely how can the educated Malawian MOSLEM DICTATOR appoint a THUG like KAIZER ZULU as an advisor?

      How can the Govt have THUGS like Max Chongo, kaizer Zulu, Kapyongo, Kennedy Kamba, Mumbi Phiri, Davies mwila walking in the corridors of power & guarding our treasury?

      That’s why they don’t care whether the country has a debt of $17.5Bn or $7.5Bn. There’s no difference as for them, it’s a self enrichment looting exercise. This quagmire will go on until the head of the snake is cut off.

  4. By the way, what is the agenda for dialogue? Is it to form government of National Unity or what? I thought Zambians voted for President Edgar Lungu and their voice is loud and clear.

  7. UPND if ever you negociated with the lungu regime the demand MUST include full democratic rights of the opposition……rights to assembly….rights to travel in any part of Zambia.. …right to freely hold peacfull rallies…rights to hold press conferences and rights to meet and inter react with the public……the regime is being slowly isolated.

    We have many proactive citizens sending petitions on line to highlight lungus abuses.

    These petitions are working…..and they were hoping for a broken UPND and HH by now….

    Again We salute the UPND MPs who have stood by HH and GBM……and the many online keyboard activists who care for a free prospuros democratic Zambia for all.

    • It sounds like your advocacy for a better Zambia only stops at UPND and not the whole country. Your hallucination of a better Zambia under UPND I’m afraid, is a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep ba Spaka. A better Zambia should unfold irregardless of who is in government. By all means ba Spaka, NEZ and some of your thick compeers on his blog strive to sanitize your partisan politics and periodical caderism. Zambia is for everybody, HH, GBM, Lungu, Wina, you and me. Finally, I fear your support for UPND it is more like a talent, a skill so to speak.

    • Yes you can continue denying that there is democratic erosion under lungu……let the rest of the world make their own minds up….we don’t lie in our petitions…all incidences are verifiable, we are only telling the truth.
      and if the world can do nothing when they learn the truth, so be it.

      If we are wasting our time with on line petitions so be it, that is our time to waist…….

  8. Secretary General of the Party, Grey Zulu (UNIP), Secretary General of the Party, Newstead Zimba (MMD).

    Learn from the Secretary Generals of the past ruling Party’s. Read everything they have written and see whether they ever wrote anything that was meant to devide the people.

  12. @6 Spaka, did you say “negotiate”? Your vocabulary must be very poor **********. The correct word is “plead”, what can underfive “negotiate” from a correction position?
    Underfive wants out because what I, Terrible, predicted and advised him is now happening. He has all but lost control of his business empire and the lawyers bills have now been presented. He will not plead for you donkeys but for his personal self after realising that none of his donkeys is advising him appropriately.

    • PF green sh.it fly mr terrible….

      there is no pleading….you were hoping for GBM to have abandoned HH by now,…. I don’t think so..
      you were hoping UPND will have disintegrated by now….I don’t think so

      And the main hope, you were hoping to have broken HH by now, very sorry, but the man is still wrong footing lungu…..

  14. Underfive pulled down his Facebook post as soon as I corrected him on GBM and his battered wife Chama ‘s business backgrounds. And also I pointed out his mention of GBM and Chama and not his own wife was strange. Someone also advised him that he is not in a position to demand anything, he can only plead, and crawl.

  21. While am tempted to agree with Dr Mwelwa, i have one question, Edgar Lungu will address HH as leader of the main opposition(which is collect and right), now my question is, how will HH address Edgar Lungu, or in what capacity will he be meeting with Edgar Lungu?
    that question brings complexity because

    1. if HH still insist he doesn’t recognize ECL, then he cant seek dialogue with him, otherwise he might as well ask to dialogue with me because to HH ECL is just a mere citizen like myself.

    2. if HH recognises the government in place, then i would ask who is the leader according to him of the the same government so that he can dialogue unconditionally with.

    Doctors and Professors of our great nation, kindly educate me to understand how this HH unconditional dialogue will happen…

  22. It seems like Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu is seeking to consolidate his power. Just last week, he seized on the fact that an arsonist had torched the capital Lusaka’s main market, to declare a state of threatened emergency. The declaration, among other things, allows police to ban public meetings and impose travel restrictions, actions that suppress dissent. The parliament voted to approve these emergency powers. But in June, the parliament suspended 48 members of parliament from the opposition United Party for National Development for a month without pay for refusing to attend an address by Lungu. These members had no chance to vote on the emergency powers. That month, opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema – who narrowly lost both the 2015 by-election and 2016 presidential election to…

  23. cont/… The Non-Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council condemned Hichilema’s arrest on “trumped-up charges,” calling it “a recipe to heighten tension in an already volatile economic and political environment.” Harsher criticism came from the traditionally coy Conference of Catholic Bishops and other church leaders, who stated that under Lungu, “Zambia eminently qualifies to be branded a dictatorship.”
    Around that time, we were part of a Human Rights Watch team that visited Zambia. Many of the people we met worried about the dark clouds of political intolerance. They feared it could threaten the country’s multi-party politics, introduced in 1991 after nearly three decades of dictatorship, and its legacy of peaceful elections and transitions of power. Because the government is…

They feared it could threaten the country’s multi-party politics, introduced in 1991 after nearly three decades of dictatorship, and its legacy of peaceful elections and transitions of power.

    Because the government is considering leaving the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Lungu called for popular consultations to decide if the country should make this move. An overwhelming 93.3 percent of people who participated in the consultations said they supported remaining with the ICC. We were there to see that the government officially reported and committed to abiding by the consultation results. We were heartened…

  25. You can only use prison to undermine and teach the opposition if you are mugabe but if you are president whose time in office expires 5 or ten years if you are two term president know that you ass is going straight jail when your time expires
    So mr lungu thinks he teaching HH a lesson but he is just depositing in the piggy bank of revenge ,He better get financial dealings straight because if ever the opposition win he is going straight to prison they will make sure he gets the taste of his own medicine ,He should never forget that only one policy every incumbent president fulfills within the firs t of office is incurcerating His predecessor,so gwan mr lungu we will see
