United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema says he is not an angry man despite being in detention for four months on trumped up treason charges.

And Hichilema says he has paid the price for agitating constitutional basic rights through his four-month detention over alleged treason charges.

Meanwhile, the opposition leader has also said he wishes no one to be imprisoned because prison life is so horrible such that even prison warders are prisoners.

Hichilema, Hamusonde Hamaleka, Muleya Hachinda, Laston Mulilanduba, Pretorius Haloba and Wallace Chakawa  who were arrested in April, charged with treason, walked to freedom after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lillian Siyunyi discontinued their case on August 16.

      That’s the more reason why you HH should tame your ego. I agree with you the charge of Treason was inappropriate, but your behavior that night was more of a street nigga. I can also deduce some reformation from your prison experience , and I know next time you see the Presidential motorcade you will seriously take cover than the antics you displayed in Monze.

      HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR COUNSELORS, YOU WOULD BE STILL BEHIND BARS
      ==============================
      Just a sample of a reminder to put some civil behavior/sense in you. A reminder that state machinery can really drill and shape you in a rather crude manner. Didn’t your mama tell you that when you play with kids like GBM, he’s gonna have your asz landed in penitentiary? You claim that you were on death row because you were missing the comfort of your bed back home. That was only 4 months, take a leaf from Mandela with a record high 27 year in jail. The same number of year KK got lavished in red brick 4 walls. Ba HH 4 months chabe, you feel like some kinda death row ne ngulu shapwa?. Get serious. Get me at least 10yrs man.

      I WOULD ADVISE HH NOT TO BE F00LISH. WHO DOESN’T KNOW THAT IF IT WERE IN THE WESTERN COUNTRIES HE ATTEMPTED TO OBSTRUCT THE PRESIDENT’S OR PRIME MINISTER’S MOTORCADE, HE AND MOST OF THOSE BLIND FOLLOWERS IN HIS ENTOURAGE WOULD BEEN CLEARED WITH BULLETS INSTANTLY? UNLESS ONE IS CRAZY LIKE HH HIMSELF- NO ONE CAN TRY TO OBSTRUCT THE PRESIDENCY IN THE WEST. WITH NO HASITATION YOU ARE SIMPLY A DEAD MAN IF YOU TRY TO OBSTRUCT THE PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE. HH AND HIS BLIND FOLLOWERS WERE LUCKY IT WAS ECL WHO HAS A HUMANITARIAN HEART.

    Africa, our continent has a long way to go in realizing its potential. One way of getting there is giving its people freedom and human rights. HH has done his part – let us all as Zambians do our part in making sure we hold our leaders accountable for their actions.

      @tione,
      Well spoken. As the saying goes ‘If it is to be, it is up to me’.
      @Zambia1,
      Yes, especially behind his Computer and networking and innovating. Mark Zukerberg sat behind a computer and founded Facebook. Today he is worth US$69 Billion and counting.
      Jan Koum sat behind a computer and co-founded Whatsapp and rose from rags (janitor) to a Billionaire worth US$6 Billion and counting.

      On the other hand Zambia1 sits behind the computer for the sole purpose of goofing around and trying to discourage others.

    Liar! When you put the President’s life in danger in Mongu, did you think about the consequences of your conduct to the 14 million Zambians?
    Remember it’s not President Lungu who prescribed the punitive measures of treason changes but the constitution and we hope you have now learn to respect the constitution of the land. You are lucky that you are even alive today in other countries you could have been the late as far back as April when you behaved in that barbaric manner. This we will not forget and don’t mix this as persecution but you were rightfully detained because you are a political failure.

    That is what you get for being foolish. So you thought you could put the life of the president in danger and expect to get away with it? That is why ulushila. You can think and reason properly. Hope you have learnt. For now, just shut up.

    And you call this 1d10t “Mandela”. Did you ever here Mandela yapping about sh1tt1ing in a bucket etc. This fo0l has just failed to make an impact after coming frim prison. He has missed the opportunity to redeem himself. The aim of the prison stay was to break you and for sure you have been bruised because you are always complaining about prison. And you call yourself the next president , my foot

    May be he was paying for the colossal sums of money he stole from the Zambian public through the sale of those companies .
    Many times we fail to know some of the misfortunes we suffer in life, as we forget the wrongs we have done to the poor , because of being greedy.

      @nshilimubemba,
      LOL- In other words you are saying ba late King Cobra President Sata incompetently FAILED to find the evidence you have easily found about the colossal sums of the stolen money?. Or are you saying King Cobra found the evidence but was too AFRAID of HH to do anything?? Do you realise you are deeply insulting late President Sata’s strength of character? Why do you think he was called King Cobra? Bushe bwaice nangula bukopo walwala?

    Bwana HH, THE MORE YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR INCARCERATION, THE MORE WE BELIEVE YOU ARE BITTER ABOUT IT- IT IS NATURAL TO BE ANGRY AND BITTER WHEN TREATED UNFAIRLY!! However, for now, we want to hear what YOUR TEAM is preparing to engage with the LEADERSHIP IN POWER to start addressing the issues that led to your incarceration PART OF WHICH IS YOURSELF!! The EU Election monitors had identified areas needing reforms and improvements and declared elections “free and fair but needing improvements”, you rubbished them as “having come for a holiday”. NOW YOU HAVE TO AGREE TO THAT ELECTION OUTCOME AND START FIGHTING FOR ELECTORAL REFORMS and I BELIEVE EVEN IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION!! SOMETHING YOU DELAYED TILL YOU LANDED ON HARD GROUND!!

    This man is lucky to be alive. the Presidential protection and security detail entitles that they could have used lethal force and it was withing the legal provisions to do so when he came that close to the elected President in the manner in which he did. He must just be thankful that the order was not given. Other countries would have shot him dead right there and the matter ended.

    How do you agitate for constitutional basic rights by blocking a presidential motorcade? Wonders never cease. This is the same HH who campaigned against the referendum on bill of rights which could have guaranteed certain basic rights. HH went to prison for failing to give way to the presidential motorcade. I hope he has learnt a lesson after spending winter in Mukobeko.

    Hazaluza Hagain! He will never be president! The President is working very hard to develop Zambia while he is planning with the cartel to sell Zambia! I will work so hard to ensure victory for the Copperbelt for the working government and that will be enough to qualify the guy to the chieftainship of Namwala!

    Persecution? Opposition leaders in Zambia have no class! This guy was making the President of Zambia to be in the Harm’s way when he should have known that losing elections for five consecutive times doesn’t qualify you to behave as a President! He is fortunate he is alive! Zambia has one president at a time. All these smaller ones are either Chief Namwala or President of “Dagga,” (Green Party) etc. NO policy to write home about!

    Well come back to the real world president HH. The world you lived before you were detained was an illusion. Do not allow yourself to cheated by your advisors and supporters that they will be with you through thick and thin. You were alone in there. Every thing happens for a reason it is up to find out what. Ponder over it meditate over it before you make your next move. Think of Zambia and your family when you make your next move. I pray that God will guide in making your next move. God Bless you.

      @Faruk,
      LOL, this is funny. You sound like a reincarnation of the Boers in yesterday’s Apartheid South Africa talking to Mandela trying very hard to give him ‘vanilla ice-cream’ and thought they could make him abandon ANC.

      Do you seriously think for a moment a person of HH’s background would stoop so low and subscribe to your self-serving childish mentality? Ati “Well come back to the real world president HH”. Bushe iwe mune have you ever herded cattle and slept in the bush in the tropical rain till all cattle, and I mean ALL cattle, is accounted for? Clearly your comment was NOT meant in good faith.

      I am even surprised you are mentioning The Almighty God in the same blog. But then again ECL does the same.

    Now that you have the opportunity to discuss progressive matters with the relevant factors please use that window profitably. Profitably in the sense that we the citizens want to hear issue based debates. Not gossip like …this one is sick….this one has no neck ….this one cannot do this or that. What we want to hear is how you would have better applied the toll gates issue, the building of dams or rain water harvesting, the handling of fertilizer subsidy, the army worm preparedness, Hospital, clinics construction and manning etc etc. Only then can we deduce whether you can make a better leader.
