United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has attended the Bene Mukuni traditional ceremony in Livingstone.

Speaking after the traditional ceremony, Mr. Hichilema said he holds Traditional leaders across the country in high esteem.

Mr. Hichilema has since called on the nation to join hands in supporting the traditional leaders.

Mr. Hichilema also appealed to the traditional leaders to always work in unity in ensuring peace and stability in the country whenever there are challenges.

The UPND Leader further noted that whenever the country is undergoing difficult times it is imperative that traditional leaders unite to foster normalcy and not further agitate divisions among the people.

Mr. Hichilema who reaffirmed his commitment to working with the traditional leaders across the country while preaching peace and national development devoid of discrimination, stressed the need for the country to preserve its various cultural norms as they help build on what traditional leaders begun long time ago.

Mr. Hichilema also maintains that when in government, he will not interfere with traditional boundaries but more on traditional leaders installation.

And Mr. Hichilema calls on his fellow politicians to not only respect traditional leaders but also work with them amicably in the interest of the country’s oneness while emphasising that the traditional leaders when available, should as well strive to preach oneness among the people.

Mr. Hichilema has also expressed gratitude to Senior Chief Mukuni of the Bene Mukuni people for inviting him to attend this year’s traditional ceremony.

The Leader of the UPND was accompanied to the traditional ceremony by the Leader of MMD, Dr Nevers Mumba, People’s Party Leader, Mike Mulongoti, Alliance for Democracy and Development, Charles Milupi, UPND party Vice President, Dr Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, party Secretary General, Stephen Katuka, Former First Lady Dr Maureen Mwanawasa and several other senior party officials and senior citizens.

This is contained in a statement issued by UPND leader’s Deputy secretary Brian Mwiinga.

      Is it a ceremony for upnd or the tonga people. Why are other chiefs from other provinces not invited when these tonga chiefs are invited by other chiefdoms.

      PF kuwayawayafye….No one stopped PF. But when PF are invited they make sure they make the traditional ceremony so political. HH was invited in the Eastern province, PF boycotted. Who cares, 2021 marks the end of PF for ever. Lungu knows it that is why he is on a looting rampage. We shall get them!

      HH has missed a chance, they should have invited other chiefs and PF officials. As it stands out, clearly shows that this was truly a UPND Traditional Ceremony.

      And his call to work with the traditional rulers doesn’t bear any weight.

      People worried about what HH is doing instead of consentration on what the Government of the day is running the affairs of the country. What HH is doing or mixing with will not affect your life or those of your children. Leave him alone. Let’s for once focus on the government to make sure that they properly run the state affairs. HH may never be president, but the chance we miss to make PF accountable (e.g. 42 million for firefighters) will be more devastating. Really our priorities as country men are wrong….

      These traditional ceremonies in the Southern part of Zambia are terribly politicised. In case you are doubting this, see from the last picture the raising of the UPND symbol by the UPND cadres. At least, organisers of such events in other parts of the country advise against the use of party regalia and symbols during traditional ceremonies. Secondly, HH told traditional leaders that as long as he was in detention, no traditional ceremony should take place in Southern Province. Now that he is out of detention, he has told them to go on and organise traditional ceremonies. This is certainly not how you go about uniting the country by politicising traditional ceremonies in the manner UPND has done with its traditional ceremonies in Southern Province.

      I wish to salute the chiefs of Northwestern Province and other provinces in Zambia other than Southern Province that they chose not to politicise their traditional ceremonies by holding them even when HH was in detention. Traditional ceremonies have always and will always be there, with or without HH and his UPND.

    It should’ve been the southern provincial minister officiating not an opposition leader. This makes it null and void. This is a sign of failure to recognise govt of the day and this chief must be sued for this including the one who graced the occasion. How can you call someone who is not a govt official to officiate an occasion which is govt gazetted. This is child play and madness and lack of understanding of governance systems and protocols.

    HH is mocking government by pushing the boundaries of running a parallel government rather than be seen as an opposition. He is intentionally pushing these boundaries to justify his made up accusations of dictatorship. The Zambian people have highlighted many issues of corruption but surprisingly, none of these vuvuzelas are putting any form of pressure for answers. This confirms that the real reason why these leaders are power hungry is for selfish reasons and not in the interest of the Zambian people. We need fresh faces that carry no baggage to enter the Zambian political scene. We are tired of recycling the same old tired faces.

A corrupt tenderpreneur specialising in Zesco contracts, according to you U.PNDonkeys? True Donkeys have no morality or shame? And how do you expect the same people who have been watching you Donkeys to put under5 in state house with his fellow corrupt ‘leader’. You see, Spaka, when you catch someone doing corruption, call them “tenderpreneur” and ‘bemba monkey’ while they are in the ruling party, you have destroyed them forever. So when they come to your party you cannot possibly use them to project a good image of your party. Unless you cleanse them and apologise and admit that you were wrong, but can U.PNDonkeys ever do anyting sensible? There you are, why under5…

Anyway, I also attended this ceremony although I left early because there were too many people. To be honest, I didn’t see many UPND cadres – just a couple near their leaders. Nothing really to write home about. Everyone just went about having fun. The town of Livingstone was deserted. They were all at this Mukuni thing. It was simply a fun day out for most people. I didn’t even see HH there. There were over 35 other chiefs in attendance.

      Instead of worrying about HH’s whereabouts and what he is doing, why not cry for the civil servants who have not been paid yet.

      It doesnt matter whether HH will be president or not we care about accountability and good governance which PF has failed lamentably. I can even vote someone else showing credibility in terms of governance not Lungu. You who vote Lungu are pathetic tribalist because the man has nothing to offer but you still force people to recognise his presidency.

    Ha ha ha, look at these tribalists trying to paint others what they themseleves real are, calling UPND and HH tribalists has gone past its “Use by date”. Don’t forget what your PF supporter Skakufuswa has said, Being corrupt carries much more negative connotations than tribal. Unfortunately for you, its not just a false label but true of your blood sucker leaders, sucking blood of every Zambian regardless of tribe.

    @Njangwamuloti, dont cheat people. The Tokas are basically Tongas. Most of their language is akin to Tonga. But truth be told, actually traditionally the Tongas looked down upon Tokas as a substandatd form of Tonga people.
    I may add that in Toka Leya there is no such ceremony as Bene Mukuni. You can attest to this by looking at the features and ask one or two questions: what is the theme of the ceremony? None. What are the salient features? None. Riding in the limousine? Never heard of! Are they celebrating a harvest or historical event? No.
    So the ceremony was actually a home coming ceremony for under5. In short it was a political rally for U.PNDonkeys.

    Yes, welcome back our great HH. We could have suspended this ceremony indefinitely if Lunga had kept you in remand prison. You are our sole tonga god and no one is above you. The irreplaceable one and the sole pillar of UPND. The rest of UPND members cannot do without you. We don’t mind how many times you lose or how many times they still our victory, until one day you become the first tonga president.Sata, MHSRP, failed several times and did not give up.We don’t care about government so called policies because we have harvested enough to feed ourselves till you become the president.We will give you 100% votes from SP this time. Thanks for officiating the most famous and popular ceremony in Zambia.

    It is not about ECL but about any Government official. Has anyone head any GVT. official being mentioned at this ceremony? Does it mean that it was only for the opposition? that is what is wrong with this ceremony, you don’t side line the Government.

    You sadists. You are jst sad for the fact that yr headless leader was not invited. When it’s lungu invited you don’t complain…and now tht it’s HH you want to politicize it. Leave President HH alone. Traditional leaders have a ryt to invite any leader of their choice. Being dull…Am sure you will charge him with treason again.

    TIME FOR CARTEL MEMBERS TO SOCIALISE
    It is not surprising to see staunch members of the CARTEL socialise at Chief Mukuni’s Traditional Ceremony in Livingstone. The presence of HH, GBM, Milupi, Nevers Mumba, Mike Mulongoti and Maureen Mwanawasa is a revelation of how the rich can openly insult the POOR Zambians – and the Toka-Leya in particular. Since when did the display of a LIMOSINE become part of Zambian tradition? Indeed it is time for the Cartel and tribalists to socialise.

    As for Maureen Mwanawasa, her secret membership to the CARTEL was recently exposed when she featured Mutembo Nchito at President Mwanawasa Memorial in Lusaka. There is some truth as revealed in Sakala’s book, “A PRESIDENT BETRAYED”.

    The events that took place at Chief Mukuni’s traditional ceremony of the Toka-Leya people call for serious review of the DIALOGUE which had been mooted by the Catholic Church and the Office of the Commonwealth Secretary General between HH and President Lungu. Where do the rest of Zambians stand in the face of tribalism that has been so vigorously exhibited by HH and Chief Mukuni? It is obvious that HH and his business partner have no human feelings nor any thread of conscience on matters of national importance in Zambia.

    HH and his minions attended the ceremony for prestige. And who tells him that he will ever rule this country? He is even saying and i quote~Mr. Hichilema also maintains that when in government, he will not interfere with traditional boundaries but more on traditional leaders installation.
    Which year will that be? 2041???? Go on and dream by thatv time there will be New leaders and new partys…whooooooooooooooo! Mulemekesha ka ceremony naufwe tukakwata …….A ceremony without other traditional leaders……..

    A TRUE AND WISE CHIEF WILL ALWAYS BE WITH HIS SUBJECTS AND WILL ALWAYS PROTECT THEM FROM ANY ENEMY LIKE LUNGU. PRESIDENTS COME AND GO BUT CHEIFTAINSHIP STAYS FOR LIFE. BE WITH YOUR UNASHAMED LUNGU WHO IS ON YOUR NRC AS YOUR CHIEF AND I WILL ALWAYS STICK TO MY TRADITIONAL CHIEFS WHO LOVE THE PEOPLE.

    @senama you are a fool, for development to place in any part of the country the government of the day must work hand in hand with traditional leaders,if you have no idea of what goes on please shut up . It may not be about the president been invited…but let government officials be invited or representatives , ceremonies are go beyond politics but to turn a blind eye on the government of the today is very disheartened what message is your stupid chief sending to the rest of the nation.

    It is understandable for Milupi, Mike Mulongoti and Maureen Mwanawasa who don’t care on the plight of the people of Lukulu, Ndola rural and Muswishi in Kabwe rural to grace Chief Mukuni’s traditional ceremony. However, how will the people of Chinsali and Kasama feel when they see misfits such as GBM and Nevers Mumba embedding themselves in a UPND ceremony held in Livingstone? GBM and Nevers Mumba are exhibiting most FULISHI (uBUPUBA) brand of politics to the detriment of their own families.
