HH at a Rally rally at Mbila, Itezhi Itezhi District, Central Province.

United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema this morning addressed a mammoth rally at Mbila, Itezhi Itezhi District, Central Province.

Mr. Hichilema in his address to the people of Mbila area in Itezhi Itezhi District, Central province, announced that he remains committed to ensuring a united, prosperous and equitable Zambia, devoid of violence and hate.

And the UPND President has called on the country to unite more than before and stop any possible injustices as is the case now, in order to foster development.

During his address to the local people of Mbila, Mr. Hichilema also thanked the people, the church, the civil society organizations and the international community for standing up for him when he was arrested and detained on flimsy charges.

And Mr Hichilema has committed that he will use his 127 days incarceration to turn around the country’s future especially economic emancipation and governance.

The President of the UPND is on firm ground that he holds no grudge against those who engineered his arrest, arrested and detained him for 127 days as he believes that if he is to pay back by punishing them, the country would not see the difference between him and those who tortured and brutalised him.

And the UPND President who is in Itezhi Itezhi to drum up support for the Party Council Chairperson candidate, Mr Shalooba, appealed to the people of Mbila area to vote for UPND in the August, 15 elections while emphasising that UPND will provide exceptional leadership across all sectors of governance that is before, during and after being in government.

Mr. Hichilema is accompanied by the Party Chairperson, Ms Mutale Nalumango who also stated that there is need of restoring rule and law in the country.

And the Leader of the Alliance Democracy for Development (ADD), Mr. Charles Milupi who called on the Mbila people to praying for the UPND President and the party in order to continue with the struggle for the country’s democracy.

      Bottomline, intellectuals start thinking of stepping for national leadership. More of you in the arena, the better. Our collective enemy is the raging poverty, tribalism and corruption. These vices are Zambia’s existential threats Government of the day cannot afford to inherently ignore. They are clear and present danger to nation security and cohension. Anyone who will understand the issues confronting the masses and pitch a sellable redemption plan, will strike a winning code.

      Yeh, this brother is laying down excellent ground rules (basics) and, he is reflecting words and phrases of a prudent leader. HH is not a transactional leader nor a situational leader, but he is very consistent with transformational leadership qualities. Furthermore, HH is unlike the lunatic villain (Lungu) who often combines transactional and autocratic leadership styles at the expense of poor gullible Zambians. Villain Lungu and strategic PF disciples play on ordinary Zambians including perceived enemies with dissenting views. The PF pits neigbhours against each other for the sole purpose of maintaining their relevance. The PF has overstayed its uselessness in the community and it is time for them to pack and disappear. Most Zambians do not need them (PF) at all. Viva HH and UPND.

      The fact of the matter is this- the State has failed on a number of fronts such as the maize floor price, no support for small businesses and too much regulation, haphazard and poorly planned infrastructure projects,policies that favour a select few such as the lifting of the exportation ban of maize which only a select few are able to afford to export, the exercise of getting a permit is expensive and very complicated, high costs on expenditure of top govt officials, MPs, SUVs yet simple improvements on prisons have been ignored. People will be the final judge- we still have 3 years to go- some of us have made the warning and people at the top have ignored us! Kaizer Zulu, Mutati, Dora and other traitors to MCS vision will be the first to abandon PF when this happens-better to offload…

    Take note;upnd will win in itezhi tezhi and in any bantustan area WHILE PF SHALL ALSO WIN ON 15/09/2017 IN ITS STRONGHOLDS!!so if HH’s upnd cant start winning in PF strongholds,then even in 2021 or 2026,HH will lose!!WHEN SATA’S PF WAS ABOUT TO DEFEAT MMD GOVNT BEFORE 2011,HE STARTED WINNING BY ELECTIONS IN…

      I also thought it was going to be wise for HH to start trying to get voters in non UPND strongholds.That is the only way he will get to plot 1.Otherwise if he goes to his relatives and thinks he is popular…he has something else coming come 2021. Let him make very strategic alliances to amass votes in non UPND strongholds . He really has the momentum to whitewash the current regime,it’s all about how well he will execute this time around. otherwise those talking petition are a lost cause.one year has passed and nothing will come out of it. “The decision of the CONCOURT is FINAL “. So HH needs to plan for 2021.Petition is water under the bridge.Let him learn from Odinga on how to successfully file a PETITION.
