President Edgar Lungu with former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo at State House
President Edgar Lungu with former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo at State House

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu should not succumb to international pressure aimed at forcing him to circumvent the course of justice by facilitating for the release of incarcerated leader Hakainde Hichilema, 3rd Liberation Movement (3rd LM) president Enoch Tonga has advised.

Mr Tonga noted that Mr Hichilema’s friends from other countries had decided to put pressure on the Head of State so that he is forced to release the UPND leader.

He pointed out that it would be unwise for the President to meddle in the work of the Judiciary by setting Mr Hichilema free.

Mr Tonga advised President Lungu not to succumb to international pressure by going against his work ethic.

He explained that President Lungu has always respected the rule of law and the separation of powers.

Mr Tonga said Mr Lungu should not entertain international pressure aimed at forcing him to over stretch his powers.

“President Lungu should be very wary of Mr Hichilema’s friends who are intentionally putting pressure on him so that he can release their friend. The only problem is that it will be tantamount to the executive meddling in the work of the Judiciary because the matter is in court,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Tonga also urged the President to be wary of the international diplomats who were trying to reconcile the two leaders.

He said that it was important to understand their true intentions, as it was questionable why some were having long discussions with the incarcerated UPND leader.

Mr Tonga wondered what the former Nigerian President Obasanjo was discussing with Mr Hichilema for more than two hours.

He said that in as much as the former Nigerian President portrayed good intentions, there was still need for President Lungu to understand his true intentions and be watchful.

“In as much as former President Obasanjo portrayed to have good intentions, President Lungu should not embrace every diplomat who comes in the name of a peacemaker. He should be very watchful,” said Mr Tonga.

  1. The President himself will make that decision! If it is his choice so be it! If not so be it!

    However HH has pleaded for forgiveness and is ready to make a public apology for the terrible acts he committed as he has realised his supporters are fake selfish cretins and leading him nowhere!

    And remember HH never handed himself to the police, he had to be smoked out of his bunker- it was one of his underpaid workers who led the police to his hiding place so don’t be cheated by the likes of spaka and wanzelu ati “HH gave himself up” wela bepa bane!

    • Uko!

      Even this unknown Mr Tonga is also feeling the heat from the international community like visionless PF bandits.

      Lungu is riding the windmill with his PF converted cheese eating monkey bandits. The pressure is on until HH is released, the presidential petition to be heard asap by an independent con~court & not those unprofessional incompetent PFudges.

      Violent PF was warned to respect human rights & people’s freedom with association, but alas dictatorship took over after swallowing MMD.

      Mr Tongo, who is now under 5 & crying foul other than PF bandits & their charlatanry supporters of dictatorship of visionless Edgar.

      Commonwealth swaaah!

    • People like Tonga are the ones that build dictators why shouldn’t he release HH for the sake of national reconciliation?
      In a christian nation you have people who think nothing but kowtowing?
      This kind of tu chawa must have no place in our age. Even the IRA who bombed and killed many people were forgiven!
      Just shut up iwe ka tonga if you have no sense at all ati kupusa bati!

    • Mr. Tonga, Edward Jonathan is already meddling in the Judiciary. He meddle the first time he sat and concocted the arrest of HH. However much you want to deny EJ’ s involvement his stench is all over this case and his crooked fingerprints can be found on all UPND’ s underpants because he has been snooping around.

    • If HH has pleaded for forgiveness then anyone can forgive him while he remains in custody until he pleads guilty to the courts of law.

      To be forgiven is one thing, and to be acquitted or convicted is another. The courts of law do not forgive they either acquit or convict; if course the court may exercise leniency on sentencing depending on circumstances.

      Forgiveness can come any time – whther before, during or after trial. It does not replace not end the latter.

      The third after forgiveness and acquittal/conviction is pardon (prerogative of Mercy). The latter comes after conviction not during the prosecution.

    • HH IS NOT PLEADING FOR MERCY TO BE PARDONED AND RELEASED BY LUNGU. TO BE PARDONED FOR WHAT? HH WANTS TO BE TAKEN TO COURT AND BE FOUND GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY. WHAT LUNGU SHOULD DO, IF HE IS MAN ENOUGH, IS TO EXPEDITE THE TRIAL BY HAVING A JUDGE DEDICATED TO THE CASE TO AVOID UNNECESSARY ADJOURNMENTS. LUNGU IS A COWARD AND HE IS DEAD SCARED OF HH.

THEY WANT TO NIP THIS RELATIONSHIP IN ITS BUD SO THAT ANY STABILITY IN AFRICA IS ENDED AND HENCE NO MEANINGFUL DEVELOPMENT FOR AFRICA AS CIVIL WARS SPREAD EVEN TO UNTRADITIONAL ZAMBIA (WAR). WHEN ZAMBIA IS STABILISED IT WILL BE VERY EASY TO RECOLONISE THE WHOLE AFRICA. MEANWHILE CHINA IS BUYING RAW MATERIALS FROM FROM AFRICA WHICH THE WEST USED TO GET FREE OF CHARGE. THIS IS NOT INTERESTING THE WEST. IN ADDITION, ZAMBIA IS IN THE FOREFRONT IN PUSHING FOR A SEAT FOR AFRICA IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL. THIS IS ALSO NOT INTERESTING THE WEST. I TRUST MR EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU UNDERSTANDS ALL THESE THINGS.

    • MOST ZAMBIANS ARE SO BLIND AND DEAF TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND WORLD POLITICS IN THE CONTEXT OF WORLD ECONOMICS. AND THE ZAMBIAN MEDIA LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED WHERE INFORMING AND EDUCATING THE NATION ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON ON WORLD ECONOMIC-POLITICS. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, ZAMBIANS HAVEN’T BEEN TAUGHT TO CULTIVATE THE CULTURE OF READING IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND HOW ZAMBIA ITSELF FITS IN INTO WORLD ECONOMICS AND POLITICS. THE BOOK WRITTEN BY HOWARD FRENCH (CHINA’S SECOND CONTINENT) EXPLAINS IT ALL.

ECL MUST STAND FIRM LIKE KK STOOD FIRM IN LIBERATING MANDELA AND SOUTH AFRICA WHILE ALL THE WESTERN COUNTRIES CALLED MANDELA AND ANC A TERRORIST GROUP AND CALLED ZAMBIA A TERRORIST SUPPORTER.

      AFRICA OPEN YOUR EYE AND EARS. KNOW YOUR TRUE FRIENDS AND YOUR ENEMIES. CHINA IS A TRUE FRIEND TO AFRICA AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CHINA AND AFRICA CAN BE IMPROVED, MUTUALLY.

Its him who has lost because no normal person would buy the stupid story that PF made just to discredit HH. PF have failed and made HH very popular..

    • This enock tonga is just an epitome id1ocy. I think his days are numbered just like Kambwili et al who have to know and learn the hard way how brutal Lungu they violently supported can be.

      HH did not commit any offence at all. His motorcade was cleared as he operated within the law as Kanganja testified in court so far. Thats why his motoring offence was withdrawn by the state. On treason, Mumbi Phiri the one who bullied the IG to arrest HH and charge him with treason has also testified that she forced the IG to arrest HH and charge with treason but she does not know why the IG arrested HH. Yet another proof utter malice subversion

      Only id10ts can not see that HH is innocent as proved by the court proceedings so far and as I have explained above.

      Lungu is under pressure and…

  7. Mr Tonga is a scared of HH being released from Jail why? It was Lungu thru the Police that arrested, charged him with fake Treason Charges and incarcerated him. Its not the Courts who decided to arrest HH. If Lungu realises he made a mistake and the Treason Charges are false he can drop the charges and release HH from Jail b4 Trial. There is no evidence that HH and 5 others attempted to overthrow GRZ using arms of War or covert activities. The State will just embarrass itself in Court. This will be a repeat of Mwaliteta Case who has been released from Jail after 12 months without a case to answer. The back stops with Lungu and let him do the Right thing and release HH from Jail becoz he is innocent.

  8. Waona manje, wayamba kulila, the heat is getting to you, Tonga or whatever your name is. HH will not apologise for being an innocent man, it is you thieving guilt people we are waiting for to confess your misdeeds and ask for forgiveness. Let me tell you that we stand by our President chosen by people not made up ones. The onus is not on HH to prove that you are not thieves, prove that you are innocent. So far all your deeds point to the fact that you have been caught with you pants down. We know it is a matter of time all will be known. So if I were you Tonga, I would zip it and wait for justice to prevail. Mulandu siuwola. Rest be assured that your sins will catch-up with you. Start cleaning up the jails bane, ukankala pa bwino, poipa paitana.

  11. Who is this Mr Tonga and what interests is he serving? Kaizer Zulu, RB, Mumbi Phiri, Kampyongo etc should stop misleading the President. There is no evidence that HH and others committed Treason. An alleged Traffic Offence is not Treasonable. Without evidence it’s better to drop the Treason Charges rather than embarass the State in Court. Pressure..Pressure from SADC and the Commonwealth on Lungu is unbearable. Lungu should just release HH from Jail and Hear the Petition. Zambia cannot afford to be expelled from SADC, AU and Commonwealth. Lungu should stop listening to his grade 12 Advisors and Criminals. Period.

As long as the prosecutions are partial in the country in full view of the president and he says nothing about it, then he does not respect the law. He will be viewed as a crook hiding behind the courts.

    • @Advice I like your analysis, it is brilliant. One thing we should note is that HH himself has not asked for forgiveness because it has to come from him alone, not other people asking for forgiveness on his behalf. It is not a secret that those charges are trumped up. Anyway let’s wait for the court process to commence next Monday

      0

      0
  20. Unless he uses his prerogative of mercy power, he cannot interfere to release a prisoner. That said, HH was imprisoned for unjust reason and his stay in prison is solely because of deliberate delays in the court process. The burden of proof in a case of treason is on the State and if they have failed to provide a compelling case, HH’s case should be dismissed.

Kikikikiki the thinking of many upnd cadres is very terrible.surely how can PF feel the heat over HH’s stay in jail?whether HH is released from mukobeko or not,PF shall remain in power until 2021.plus nobody will reverse HH’s wasted months in jail.it will be life as usual for all in PF as HH is out.instead upnd cadres must be happy to see HH out of jail than seeing him suffering in jail for nothing!!HH’s stay in jail will never win upnd any election or add votes to upnd,so what is there to celebrate about?BA SPAKA LIKE LILO;FOR ONCE BEHAVE LIKE A NORMAL PERSON!!!your kainde has suffered enough for nothing in jail,so wish him freedom!!Obvious Mwaliteta and his team suffered for more than 11 months in jail until the courts freed them yesterday minus any compasetion!!so what has PF…

  27. Dear citizens, you do not need a law degree to prove that there is no treason case here for HH to answer. This corrupt government is just wasting tax payers money and maybe borrowed money on a useless case which has helped devide us unnecessarily. Am certainly sure that the 2 hours that Ms Scotland spent with HH was not wasted time and certainly not a platform for HH to plead for forgiveness, am sure they discussed some very intellectual issues as they are both intelligent people. This Mr. Tonga character sounds equally corrupt and he is not making sense at all and he knows who is responsible for this waste of time so called treason case. It all sounds like a circus government to me !!

  28. **BREAKING NEWS**

    With 91% of the ballots counted, incumbent Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta leads with 54% while main opposition Raila Odinga trails with 44%.

    It is now common practice among the allied opposition parties in Africa to be darlings of international media and fail to inspire local populations to vote for them. Like our very own perpetual elections loser hh, Odinga has since refused to accept the results. The sponsors of these opposition parties seem to be losing their regime change agenda as they don’t seem to grasp the reality that it is the majority compound dwellers who play the most important role and not the minority middle to upper classes and the hoodlums in diaspora. God bless Africa.

To kill the Petition they incarcerated HH on Trumped Up Treason Charges hoping to kill him in Jail. The Hearing of the Petition is suicidal to these hardliners. To make matters worse they know Lungu lost the Election in 2016 and the Treason Trial will vindicate HH. Lungu should ignore these criminals and release HH from Jail and deal with the Petition. Being expelled from SADC and the Commonwealth has dire consequences for Lungu and Zambia.

A fact – UPND had a higher voter turnout in their strongholds of almost 90percent and above, PF had a voter turnout from 40 to 60 percent in their strong holds which explains why we saw a larger number of MPs voted for PF in the majority 7 provinces of the nation because what happened was out of a small pool of voters that same pool voted mostly PF in the PF strongholds. Southern Province with its high number of registered voters voted fanatically for HH of course on tribal lines. So what in fact happened was a concentration of votes clustered in the W, S and NW against the other 7 provinces. Had we followed the American system of voting which is very democratic and it considers the…

    • Ctn… Had we followed the American system of voting which is very democratic and it considers the entire country and not population clusters, so even if HH had a larger number of votes which he didn’t he still would have lost- as was the case with Hillary Clinton who had 3million votes over Trump but still lost!!!! Maybe we should just the change to the all inclusive American collegiate electoral system!!!!!

  32. My comments on Mr Tonga’s shallow and simplistic are by reminding of the following historic similar global events: (i) Mandela’s release was preceded by international dignitaries discussing with both the RSA apartheid government as as with Madiba himself. It is documented in the book Long Walk to freedom that he was brought to the main for discussion with dignitaries. Such events and other factors led to his transfer from Roben island to the main land where he started talking the government officials.(2)Supper KK invited President of RSA Mr Voster and had a two day none stop discourse at the Victoria Falls Bridge in a first class railway passenger wagon discussing the release of Madiba. (3) Western countries pressurised the apartheid regime to release Madiba. Eventually President…

  33. This Mr. Tonga doesn’t live in Zambia. This is not a platform to exercise and show that you can speak and write in English Mr. Tonga. Why don’t you want HH released?

  35. Enock Tonga just like Kaiser Zulu want HH to remain in Jail forever why? KZ was a key Election Rigger in the 2016 Election. In fact he was involved in the Premarked Ballot Papers imported from Uganda as medicine for Lungu. Tonga, KZ , Mumbi Phiri etc don’t want the Petition to be heard becoz their election rigging roles will be exposed. These PF Hardliners are scared of HH’s Presidency becoz they will go jail for their corrupt deals and their role in rigging the 2016 Elections.

  36. Peter , I have never read any of your contributions that are mature and critically analysed. As much as HH as I have never supported HH in recent past, I have come to love and cherish his resolve. HH has shown us there is nothing more rewarding and self fulfilling to die for. Treason charge is one of the worst firm of abuse of government machinery and judicial systems to punish an innocent person. HH is Zambian and a citizen of the world. I resolved to love and respect his resolve. The people advising Lungu not listen are evil with evil intentions and will turn against Lungu once his borrowed power is in other people’s hands. The life of a person depends on his ability to listen to wise people. Bush products like Mumbi Phiri, father Bwalya, Kampyongo, Amos Chand, Sunday Chanda, Emmanuel…

  37. Please let the law take its full course! Under Fives never learn! You are insulted daily by his followers who are as Under Fives as the loser! Let the law decide! If you were to go there and tell them what to do, no one would listen to you, Sir!

  39. It seems like some people hate progress, they would rather remain living in the past . Have you not heard that the two leaders have agreed to put their differences behind ? The law will decide whether or not there is a treason case here . Stop being so cruel and havea heart . One day your own relatives or even yourselves will be arrested in zambia, USA or uk or where ever you are . Lets start on a clean slate .

  40. Its a fact that Lungu can not sustain a grip on HH. It zeroes on the working of God. Be assured.
    That Lungu may not have birthed the situation in which HH is, is what even makes it agonising to his conscience.
    Time has come for the president to stand in control, and be more man enough, by spitting on his so called advisors, who think are in control of his decisions.

    The rulership of a nation cannot be left to a few to think this nation is theirs to control.
