Mr Amos Chanda with Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland and Prof Nkandu Luo at during the second visit to State house
State House says Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland’s second visit to UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema at Mukobeko Correctional Facility in Kabwe is because of matters that arose when she presented her Report to President Edgar Lungu.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda says the report was based on the meeting that Mrs. Scotland had with Mr. Hichilema.

Mr. Chanda told Journalists in Lusaka that at the right time the visiting Secretary General of the Commonwealth will brief the media on her visit to Zambia.

Mrs. Scotland is in Zambia for a series of meetings with various players regarding issues of promoting gender equality and peace among others.

Yesterday, Ms Scotland visited incarcerated United Party for National Development president Hakainde Hichilema.

President Lungu’s Press aide Amos Chanda told journalists after the meeting between Mr Lungu and Ms Scotland that the secretary general informed the President that she would be proceeding to Mukobeko Prison in Kabwe.

Mr Chanda said the President encouraged her to do so.

    • If HH sells his recognition of an illegal election for his freedom from prison then he’s not worthy of a leader. No on should ever waste a vote on him. You cannot compromise your principles for temporary freedom.

      He should learn from Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, and Kwame Nkhruma who chose death over temporary freedom. Nelson Mandela served almost 30 years in what he believed.

      Let us be motivated by ideals beyond our hungry bellies instead of speaking through our arses.

      Clearly the visit by this Commonwealth fimofimo does not sit well with you because your selfish interests are on the line.

    • Yes it is happening HH will be released in the coming weeks most likely.
      The word is he has agreed to all terms set by the State and will issue a public apology once released! The poor man was being used all along by selfish and cowardly UPND members
      Let peace reign. 2021 is coming if he feels he can do it let him stand as President but I know he has learnt that in his own circle that is were the true war is. Truth is he has been let down by his so called supporters – heartless cadres who can’t even spend an ngwee to pay for HH’s kid’s school fees let alone buy a bag of mealie meal for HH’s household- very stingy cretins these UPND guys are, very selfish to use HH this way, SHAME!!!!!SHAME!!!!!!SHAME!!!!!

      Let peace reign!

    • SHE IS TRYING HER BEST TO PUMP SOME SENSE IN POOR HH
      ================================
      Madam Kindly tell HH that Dr. GBM, GUY, NEVERS, KATUKA, VJ and other malfunctioning surrogates and supporters are having a sip of some hot coffee with vanilla biscuits on the chills of the cold whether while he was coming to terms with how cold jail cells can become in July and August. With an almost one year anniversary in penitentiary shouldn’t he be coming to terms with the obvious? The fact that life goes on with or without him. Sick cha.ps call Zambians docile, I call Zambians elite and smart. We don’t sympathize let alone empathize with attention seekers. By and large, when you error, the judicial and natural justice of life should catch up with y’all.

    • Mrs Scotland unlike someone we know is a respected Barrister of a Kingdom that has respect for human rights and the rule of law .The very fact that she (Scotland) has been to see HH for the second time points to the fact that she has cut through what Lungu’s government presented and lied to her and compared it with what HH has said and has found a lot gaps that needs to be filled .To be brutally honest , Lungu is running the country using intimidation tactics .These are characteristics of cowards who are scared of fights fought using wits and minds .
      For who have eyes , it is a fact that in a civilised nation , Lungu cannot pass a proper persons test because of his past and would therefore not qualify to be president . Alas! Zambia has gone to the dogs and Lungu is what he is today…

      We all know Akainde is not for the people. We know cheap politicians when we see them. A cheap privatization thief like Akainde.
      By the way, how did the mighty richest elite Akainde get dribbled by a humble lawyer from Chawama? Spaka will soon hug a transformer like the retarded Chikalyata and NEZ

    • Finally LT got the facts right after being caught pants down.

      Lady Scotland is here on a serious fact finding mission to compile a report on whether Zambia should be expelled from the commonwealth or not because of Lungu ‘s dictatorship and illegal occupation of presidencial office.

      Nkhani yalula ka. Amos and Kaiser balimuchibe for advising Lungu wrongly.

      The secretary general wants Lungu to release HH without conditions so that election petition matter in court can be dealt with fairly without intimidation of the judges or opposition lawyers..

      Lungu and his thugs bayopa ati HH has strong evidence to nullify the presidencial results if the courts can be left to do their jobs without PF threats.

      Mwaliteta et al were acquited ,but lets wait and see if this was done to…

    • Mwaliteta et al were acquited ,but lets wait and see if this was done to appease Lady Scotland or not. If they remain free after she leaves Zambia then thats a cause for celebration.

      I believe had it not been for lady scotland
      Mwaliteta et al would still be languishing in jail.

      Free HH now or else.

    • These days’ abuse of power can lead a President e locked up after his tenure, Lungu should be careful because all those advising him to punish HH will run away from him and join which ever parties of the day. Zambian MPs and Ministers in PF government are evil. They think with their bellies not Heads. See what happened to Charles Taylor of Liberia or Laurent Gbagbo?? They are all locked up. No one is above the law these days, therefore these investigations can work against Lungu. He should not lie that he does not intervene with the Justice system or the Police. Actually I would love to See the IG sued because he is the one who failed on that day. It’s a shame and embarrassing.

    • @Vn
      LOL – You are talking about being honest? The YouTube clips of the Mongu event FAILED to prove a lesser charge of a traffic offence. As a result the case collapsed. And yet you are still counting on the same YouTube clips to prove a higher allegation i.e. Treason Case?

      Sorry for what offence exactly? LOL – Clearly you my friend are ‘arguing from ignorance’. Why are you avoiding answering the points I have made?

      If you are serious in your quest for honesty and you mean well, can you at least look at the YouTube video clips and can pin point, in your opinion, at what stage what offence occurs?. The State prosecutors in the past cases related to the same Mongu event failed to do so, and their cases collapsed for lack of evidence.

    • Lungu himself is saying that the only treason committed by HH is not to recognise Lungu as having won the election. Clearly HH never declared himself President of Zambia in Mongu. There was no treason committed in Mongu. And Lungu is not a King. He is just a thug from Chawama. He is abusing the law to jail opponents for no reason, just like he jailed Mwaliteta for one year for nothing.

This guy could have long been forgotten by now, instead you give him the international stage and limelight; now he is being treated like a national trophy by the international community and as an only saviour by his supporters (and trust me they may be silent but they are many – 49% of zambians). This is what happens when people reason emotionally to prove a point. You have scored an own penalty guys, you have turned this man into a hero. Smh

  20. Why can’t we leave the process of the law to acquit HH,as his cohorts claim is innocent? Why seek mediators on a straight forward case as claimed.After all its just a mere traffic offense.The courts have just proved they are impartial by a c quitting Mwaliteta and others.Even HH will be acquitted,if at all there is no evedence.Why do you need mediators???

    0

    0
    • @SayAsItIs,
      Correction:- There is NO traffic offence either because it also collapsed for lack of evidence.

      So, in short, the mediators, and all well-meaning people interested in good governance of Rule of Law are justified in asking why HH and his colleagues have been unlawfully detained for a Treasonable Offence that actually NEVER happened. Not even a traffic offence happened. Nothing.
