HH stresses a point during the interview

Dear Mr Hakainde Hichilema,

I hope you are well and the family is alright. I write this letter to you as an extremely disappointed Zambian. I am disappointed because sir, you seem to have made yourself irrelevant and maybe it’s time for you to retire from active politics and focus on business.

I voted for you in 2015 and 2016 and after you lost, I was hoping that you would be an effective leader of the opposition by providing checks and balances to the ruling party. I hoped that you would speak for the voiceless, lift up the downtrodden and give them hope for a better Zambia. I prayed for you to be an effective opposition leader.

When I watched videos of Julius Malema and his party taking the ruling party and President Jacob Zuma to task in the South African Parliament, I got inspired. I admire Malema’s courage and good political strategy. His MPs cause a lot of havoc in the South Africa Parliament but it seems your MPs only know how to boycott proceedings and collect big allowances. I won’t blame them too much since they follow your instructions and the buck stops with you.

When I see your statements, all I hear is complaints about the stolen elections in 2016 and how you will not recognize the current president and how your court cases are still pending. Have you ever asked ba mu komboni if they care about those things? Have you ever gone to Shangombo and asked them what the right to be heard means to them and how it will put food on their table? I don’t think that Zambians will vote for you because you are refusing to accept the current president.

What you fail to realise is that Zambians respect authority, even if they often don’t agree with the people holding it. They come from a long tradition of chieftainship and it is wired in their minds that you avoid openly disrespecting the chief. You can refuse to recognize Edgar Lungu as president and it is your right. But when you make that the major issue you always talk about, people like me lose interest in you. You are proving that you don’t have a coherent strategy and you don’t have proper advisers on your team who can read the mood of the nation and advise you correctly.

Instead of what you are doing, how about you begin focusing on the real problems Zambians are facing? I did not really like President Sata but I give him credit for being a very effective opposition leader. He grew his party from 3% of the vote and one parliamentary seat in 2001 to taking over power ten years later.

His party kept growing with every election whereas UPND kept declining until it benefited from the implosion of MMD. Whenever Mr Sata would be on radio, the taxi drivers at taxi ranks would all be tuned in and listening attentively, including passersby who would stop.

The other opposition leaders Saviour Chishimba and Chishimba Kambwili are far more effective than you, despite having small parties. When they speak, the ruling party reacts and issues counter statements. Mr Kambwili has been so effective that attack dogs like Bowman Lusambo and Munir Zulu have been sent to fight him.

CK and SC have been talking about corruption which is what I also expected you to talk about much more. Whistle blowers are not coming to you with information, despite your much bigger party and audience. They are going to your competitors. It was SC who brought up the Maize scandal, not you. It is CK talking about miners and workers’ rights but not you. Only now have you joined the bandwagon.

Last Friday, Laura Miti, Pilato, and Sean Tembo of the PEP party went to protest against the $42 million fire tender scandal. I did not see you there or any top leader from your party. You did not even send your party officials or your cadres to march in solidarity. You missed a golden opportunity to show Zambians that you are standing up for them. Instead you sit comfortably issuing press statements from your nice air conditioned mansion instead of being on the frontlines.

That demonstration was going to give you a chance to force the courts to interpret again the provisions of the Public Order Act. We know that you do not need a police permit to hold a peaceful demonstration as long as you notify the police. But the police like to claim you need a permit.

Why haven’t you sued the police over the POA? You can’t give the excuse that the courts are not independent when you took the matter of your election petition and the right to be heard to the same courts. You are focusing on the wrong things.

Justice Minister Given Lubinda recently revealed that he invited submissions over amending the POA but none of you in the opposition gave any. But you are the same people who complain when the police are heavy handed against you and stop your meetings.

After 4 months in jail, I expected you to become more determined to speak for us Zambians but it seems nothing has changed. You had become irrelevant after the 2016 elections and were lucky to be brought back into the spotlight by a self-inflicted wound by the ruling party. You have gone back to being irrelevant by your own choice.

I wonder if you learned anything from Kenya. Raila Odinga was more politically astute and he pushed a petition within 14 days that focused on the process of tallying the votes and he won his case. It is a far cry from your case last year that you destroyed with so many preliminary issues and filing 80 grounds. 53 were thrown out for lacking merit.

Your petition had absolutely no chance of being heard in 14 days. And here you are, a year after the elections trying to force your case to be resurrected like Jesus, instead of accepting that you shot yourself in the foot. You should have been planning for 2021 instead of wasting our time.

Much as I don’t like it, the sad reality is that the ruling party will win again in 2021. I see your party losing significant support in Lusaka, Copperbelt and Central provinces. Unless you change your strategy and focus on real issues affecting real people, you are going nowhere and you won’t get my vote again.

Yours sincerely,

Paulos Sianga

    • Another PF cardre pretending to be UPND. Did Kambwili send his sympathizers to protest about the fire tenders? HH has instructed his MPs to ensure the speaker sets up a select committee to investigate the procurement of the fire tenders. What more do you want?

      The problem with this kaponya mentality is that when someone is not vulgar then he is not doing anything! Lets clean our politics from thuggary and uncouthness please. Leave HH alone.

    • TROUBLE IS HH IS A VERY GREEDY AND SELFISH INDIVIDUAL WHO THINKS EVERYTHING MUST BE ABOUT HIM. I EXPECTED A LOT OF CHANGES IN HIS APPROACH TO POLITICS AFTER HIS SHORT TIME IN INCARCERATION. SADLY, ENOUGH HE IS AGAIN BACK FIGHTING ECL. IT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING TO HEAR HIM SAY, “I am not afraid of anyone even after my 127 day incarceration”. THIS SENTENCE IS JUST ABOUT HH AND NO BODY ELSE. AND HE EXPRESSES HIS HATE AND BITTERNESS. HIS FACE IS STONE-HARD WITH ANGER AND BITTERNESS. ZAMBIA DOES NOT WANT THIS KIND OF RULER IN PUBLIC OFFICE. IT IS OBVIOUS AND NOT A HIDDEN FACT THAT SHOULD HH BE GIVEN A CHANCE, HIS FIRST PRIORITY FOR 5 YEARS WOULD BE VENGENCE. MANDELA, WAS INCARCERATED IN PRISON FOR ALMOST 30 YEARS BUT CAME OUT STILL WELL FOCUSSED ON THE ORIGINAL CAUSE AND STILL SMILING. HE…

    • …BUT CAME OUT STILL WELL FOCUSSED ON THE ORIGINAL CAUSE AND STILL SMILING. HE WASN’T BITTER. THAT IS HOW A LEADER SHOULD BE. AT HOME SATA WAS ROBBED IN MANY ELECTIONS WAGED AHEAD WITHOUT WASTING TIME ON HOW HE WAS ROBBED AND ASKED ALL HIS FOLLOWERS TO BE CALM ABOUT IT AND RE-FOCUS ON CAMPAIGNS RIGHT AWAY. HH IS TOO HATEFUL AND BITTER FOR A LEADER AND EVERYTHING IS ABOUT HIMSELF.

    • QUOTE: ““People are saying no, HH is afraid after being jailed, someone who was taking care of cattle when he was young can be afraid?…”
      WHICH PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT. HH IS READING TOO MUCH OF WATCHDOG. PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA ARE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT HH’s EGO. OF COURSE IT WASN’T LIKE HEADING A HEAD OF LIONS. COWS OR BULLS DON’T BITE. I EVEN WONDER IF YOU HEADED CATTLE. I THINK THAT CAME IN AFTER THE LIQUIDATION EXERCISE OF PUBLIC COMPANIES.

    • GOOD ONE, BUT GIVE HH A BREAK. THE JAIL MEMORIES ARE STILL FRESH AND HE WISHED PEOPLE LIKE YOU SIANGA MATCHED IN SOLIDARITY WITH HIM WHILE IN JAIL. NO WONDER HE IS NOW CALLING HIS SUPPORTERS A BUNCH OF LOSER COWARDS, INCLUDING PEOPLE LIKE YOU SIANGA – A BUNCH OF COWARDS. BUT THE STREET IS NOT THE BATTLE FIELD. WE HAVE LEGAL BATTLE FIELDS.
      ====================================
      You have hit a jack pot on a number of issues pertaining to your leader HH. I wonder what you have seen in this crook HH, the conman. The entire UPND leadership and supporters have no confidence in our 1. ECZ, 2. Law Enforcers (ZP), 3. Judicial Process (courts), 4. ACC, 5. The Zambian People, 6 The National Assembly, 7, the Govt and finally 8 ZNBC. In short UPND has lost it. They are simply a bunch of hopeless…

    • Whether you like it or not, this guy has a point. I am neither a UPND supporter nor PF supporter, but this gives HH something to reflect upon.
      1) After HH release, he mentioned that he needed some time to rest and reflect and promised to come up with plan/strategy on his next action, to date, nothing tangible has come up from HH.All I heard was that he is not afraid, is that the strategy people are expecting from him?
      2) Last week, the government presented the budget, I expected a swift reaction by UPND, to date nothing has come up, I do not know how much time they need to come up with a response.

    • Who is greedy between Lungu and HH? Lungu has stolen Zambians money openly and morons are here supporting his theft. How shameful!

      Lungu is busy stealing while HH is using his own money sponsoring kids to UNI.

      How many kids has Lungu sponsored out his own pocket yo show that he is not greedy id1ot?

    • Its shocking to see many people supporting daylight theft by Lungu and his stooges.

      I have said it many times that all those the PF regime are mentally disturbed and need their heads examined.

      Lungu knows his days are numbered and he is busy globe trotting to find where he can hide his stolen loot and run there to hide when his time go comes.

      The whole PF is pathetic to the core.

    • I find hard to believe that Zambians are now supporting rampant corruption and theft of the PF.

      What has really become of Zambians of late? Is it Lungu s poverty blind folding all his supporters to praise him even when they see that he is stealing.

      Zambia is going down Zimbabwe s way if PF is not dealt with once and for all

    • Very well said! What we need are issue based politics that tackle issues not personalities- when has ECL insulted HH??? Never! But HH has insulted ECL countless times just out of bitterness and here I’m talking about before the elections even took place!

      If HH can stick to addressing issues and not insults he will definitly get more people rallying behind him!

    • @1.8 flag Spaka like lilo
      Look man, going to court in this iisue of allegation is 3 faceted:
      1) CK has issues with evidence against ECL and his inner circles, so he can file a lawsuit against government or individuals in Government.
      2) You CK sympathizers can gang up in solidarity, hit the road to the courts and help CK who has evidence fight the legal battles about alleged corrution for Zambia and Zambians.
      3) ECL can be so aggrieved of the allegations leveled on him an sue the accuser for defamation and the likes. Knowing how demented CK is, ECL can choose to ignore the moron. Exactly what he has chosen. So there you have it, the three sides of a coin. Heads, Tails and Edges. Gimme meat not bones. Ain’t got no teeth to bite.

    • Just concerned with recent moves you are making with chiefs becareful the show a person with hidden agenda who can’t be given power. You could have advised the chiefs that the stand does not mean well for Zambia. You are doing this because you want EL to feel bad but you forget how it will turnish your name. Find a good counsellor to help you before you do something. Concerned Zambian.

    • Very strange letter coming for an obviously PF carder who obviously wants to divert attention from corruption! Come on guys, today everyone is complaining about this govt, the same things which HH was raising everyday for the last 5 years of PF and you all labelled him bitter. Truth is, even if he speaks today, you will still call him bitter. Another truth is that his voting base is intact because they can all through your desparate attempt to malign him and discredit his good name – which is the only thing some of you are good at. Deep down your heart you know he is a good leader but your hatred is blinding you. Take a chill pill and let HH be. He is our President and candidate for 2021 whether you like it or not

  3. Good advice Mr Sianga. Unfortunately it falls on the very deaf ears of a pompous, arrogant Under5 frog who respects no one, not even himself.
    Your letter to the 6 time loser of elections was a good read. Alas (HH) the Halpha and Homega is the beginning and the end of UPND and he believes he’s a small ‘god’.
    How can we advise a ‘god’ and expect ‘it’ to listen this Kaponya?
    Good attempt to pump sense into the minion and well written Mr Sianga. His advisers like Spaka will bash you for your skillful writing. They pray to the Kaponya ‘god’ Hingombe Hilede

      Call him out for what he is, a time waster. (HH) has lost his influence on the political scene, he can’t even get the support of the undecided. The small splinter groups that are forming over the next 3 years will add more value to the political scene and ultimately displace UPND

    Can you please write also open letter to the thieving and corrupt Constitutional Office Holders to explain source of their “magical” wealth?
    After all, it is our tax-payers money which has been either plundered or is going to be used to repay unprecedented borrowings.

    • When confronted, at a rally, in a similar manner, Obama answered, “If you know all the issues that people care about some well, why don’t you run? This Sianga guy is calling HH an armchair critic, but he is not the one who was arrested with Pilato either. Wouldn’t it have been great to received a letter from someone whose rights got infringed upon in the company of Laura Miti?

      Those who feel the pain do something about it. Imwe yanu no ponyelapo cabe. Zambians are the only people in the world that expect performance and conformance from people they don’t pay.

      Refocus yourself, bwana!

  7. CORRECTLY WRITTEN.SATA GREW IS PARTY BECAUSE HE WAS VERY FOCUSED.I DON’T SEE UPND WINNING 2021 ELECTIONS.
    HH IS NOT A BRIDGE BUILDER BUT A DESTROYER.WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE TRADITIONAL CEREMONY WAS VERY SAD WERE ONLY THE TONGAS GROUPED ALONE WITHOUT OTHER TRIBES BEING INVITED.
    THIS IS NOT HELPING UPND IN ANY WAY.

Sianga is just an empty noise making tin let him also advise the PF Govt over the escalating poverty levels,numerous taxes,unemployment and high cost of living standards Zambians are currently facing coupled with corrupt Ministers stealing day in day out while the President is quiet without any action being taken.There are revelations of maize scam,fire tenders,road contracts,fertilizer and many more Lungu’s ministers are alledged to be involved but the toothless ACC is busy defending the suspects and only selective in prosecuting a few.This country is going no where if the authority will continue and let resources being pocketed by individuals entrusted with power at the expense of the poor rural villagers in Shangombo,Mambwe,Kaputa,Isoka,Chavuma and so on and so forth.Soon farmers…

  10. HH is busy playing guest of honor at traditional ceremonies in Southern Province – playing “mini-president” — and he has the support of local traditional leadership in the region. Talking about lack of strategy, do you really need more? He has no idea how many votes he has lost by those actions.

  11. It is a very sad occasion when political parties rely on bribes and ignorance to gain votes. Zambia is not the only nation worldwide to be afflicted.

    TALK to the people constructively. TELL them the truth of how your party will help them. But also tell them that without TEAM WORK the nation will always be disabled not developing.

    Too many constructions of unneeded shopping malls and not enough of rebuilding districts such as N’gombe, Garden etc. Too much money today for no future.

  12. Mr Sianga your comparison with Kenya is not correct. In Kenya the Supreme Court acted Professionally and independent of the Executive. In Zambia Lungu connived with ECZ and Concourt to steal the Election Victory from HH. Acting on directives from Lungu, Concourt erroneously and i?legally “dismissed”the Petition b4 the 14 working days lapsed. In terms of the Constitution and Electoral Law Concourt was supposed to hear,determine and give a Validation Certificate to Lungu for him to be sworn in as President. Lungu carried out a coup on the Zambian Constitution and retained power illegally. Lungu was not Democratically,Constitutionally and legally elected President. He is therefore in Power illegally. In the Kenyan Case the Supreme Court led the Petition Hearing process and provided 5 days…

  15. These are fair points raised by the author. I hope HH will take heed. There is something about the ineffectiveness of the delivery of HH’s messages no matter how relevant they are. There is a certain way to appeal to the masses out there and they matter. Hit on what they feel most and you’ll be home and dry. Simplicity is key.

  16. The Kenyan Supreme Court prepared a Time Table to hear the Petition. 5 days was set for Preliminaries,5 days for hearing evidence from the Petitioners and Respondents and 4 days for writing the Judgment. In Kenya they worked over the weekends and for long hours. The Supreme Court understood that they had to give a Verdict. Concourt dismissed the Petition on a Time Technicalitly which is illegal at law. A Judge cannot sentence an alleged murderer to death without a Hearing simply becoz time has elapsed. Delivery of Justice is far more important than time expiry. Mr Sianga u got it wrong.

    • @Chibwe, here is the western world cases are thrown out of court and the accused released because the prosecution has taken “too long” to prosecute a case. So, delivery of justice is not far more important than time expiry. Ask UPND cadre and lawyer in Canada Munshya what is happening in Canada about cases that have been delayed.

Please just go and kneel for you plate of soup from Plot-1 and all the cronies, next they will eventually turn against you and you will nobody to back you up.

      I appreciate your point. However, this is an open letter written in bad faith. Right now, HH is not in power and what we need to hear more of is someone lambasting the govt for spending $1m on a $250k fire-truck, spending over $3m per kilometer to build a road that should cost $750k per kilometer, awarding the same controversial company used for procurement of fire-trucks a contract to supply agricultural inputs: what a shame! And PAULOS SIANGA has the meat to come here and sing song in bad tune about HH who has just come out of prison. I don’t care about HH’s imperfections, it is not HH who is in power; I care about Lungu and his ministers who seem not to care at all about the suffering of citizens including Paulos Sianga and yourself Ndanje: you will only find out…

His MPs cause a lot of havoc in the South Africa Parliament but it seems your MPs only know how to boycott proceedings and collect big allowances. I won’t blame them too much since they follow your instructions and the buck stops with you”. Don’t take this advice for granted, here in the UK Tesco Store have a saying ” Every little helps”

  21. This article from Sianga and the subsequent comments shows how shallow the thinking levels of Zambians are. Take it from me that If HH all over a sudden retires from politics, Sianga and his supporters will be first to come out claiming that HH was a better opposition than the the would. HH remains the best hope for Zambia, otherwise the country will continue with thiefing and low calibre leaders. The Kambwilis of this earth will just ruin the country just like Edgar has done.

Where an Incumbent President refuses to resign and handover Power to the Speaker of Parliament during the Petition Hearing and the President connives with ECZ and Concourt to rig the Election what was HH supposed to do?Lungu carried out a coup on the Zambian Constitution and without State Machinery what was HH supposed to do? HH Petitioned the Election which is a civilised and a lawful way of resolving the conflict. Concourt failed to handle the Petition professionally and independent of the Executive. What is Mr Sianga suggesting HH should have done? Let Lungu stew in illegitimacy and after he leaves office he will be answerable for committing all these illegalities. Mulandu tauboli!

  24. Well spoken. UPND MPS and all leaders need to be militant. PF is a brutal party and it needs militant approach. UPND they have the numbers and can do much better than what they are doing now. I guess after the arrests of many members by PF govt, many have taken a back sit but Zambian politics is a total war. Opposition should not rest like Sata did when he was in the opposition.

  25. The easiest way to win the support of the people in whatever you do is to tell them how you will solve their problems once you have the reigns of power and not just crying foul each time you are pushed in the corner because every one has one or two problems and they are not really interested to hear your problems. HH spends more time complaining this and that and that is what is making him irrelevant. I have never heard him give a blue print how he will turn around the fortunes of this country. Being a successful businessman is not a diplomatic passport to political office. HH lacks charisma, tactic and political focus, tools essential for ascendance to political office.

  28. Sianga you want HH to fight for you. Why didn’t you join Pilato and Laura Miti when they were protesting against corruption? All you can do is talk talk without action. Shame on you who like to use others.

  29. Sianga is one PF cadre could be Mwamba for all you know. I am UPND and still believe in the VISION of the party not this one of Thieves round about. Corruption in Zed has become acceptable at all levels, you are expected to bribe even for someone to receive your documents. I wonder if there are any normal servants in our government. Sadly fools are still following these thieves while they drown in poverty and the thieves get richer everyday.

  30. HH as a leader does not have much to offer beyond opposition. It is true we can safely say that the 47% HH got from the last general election was and will be the highest in his political career not because of rigging but because of his luck of reasonable strategy. He got GBM only for numbers not for strategic thinking. His (HH) first indication that he was not going anywhere with GBM should have been when GBM and his daughter lost their elective positions. The article cannot be far from the truth.

  32. If you think HH has no strategy then you’re not thinking beyond your nose. He has a strategy which is not to be prez of Zambia but of Southern, Western and NW. He knows he won’t win Zambian elections therefore it’s a case of divide and conquer. Once the two sides are divided then he will declare himself prez of the one block, with or without elections. He’s already doing a good job dividing the two blocks. What’s left is getting the International community, which he has lobbied and keeps on lobbying, to support a proposal to seperate the two countries.

    • Can you name any Western politician that has not come out of politics richer?

      Are you so gullible not to realise that Riches are one of the rewards of Power? Man lives and dies to rise above his fellows for Gold. It is one of the rewards. We’ll deserved in President Lungu’s case who incidentally, gives away a substantial part of his earnings for good works.

  34. HH, Tut, Tut, what can you say about the man?

    Dreadful disappointment in him. He has locked his heart in anger and lost his political way. I wonder how as a Church Elder, he teaches forgiveness and not pining for things of the world?

    Anyway, he has declared himself a non leader from his constant attacks on his fellow citizens. How about other things he has campaigned against, like changes to the Constitution and advising voters against the enshrining of Freedoms. Now it emerges, that even taking part in the POA, adjustments has been nixed. What is point of him?

  35. All these carders shooting down Mr. Sianga’s article are the ones putting the final nail in HH’s political coffin. I have not seen a statement as object as this in a while. If HH’s people mean him well, they’ll heed this advice and take note of this free, cardinal eye opener.
    Napela!

  36. You’re just jealous because somebody (CK) is making HH’s work easier. What rubbish is this hateful jargon of a letter talking about? If you don’t know anything on the Kenyan courts’ handling of their petition, just go to bed and sleep. Always do a simple survey on any topic you would want to pass a comment on. Who told you that their process took only 10 days like our own circus here? You’re actually contradicting yourself when you talk of the petition while discouraging HH not to talk about it himself. I think, to put it plainly for you, HH does not even need your filthy vote. Go and give it to Jonathan, he’s the one who will desperately need it so that he doesn’t go to jail for all these cases of fire tenders and over-priced road works. Aren’t you satisfied with the bared teeth…

  37. Paulos where are you my brother…this is fantstic observation excellently presented without insults but with correct tone. PF is rulling unopposed, its too easy for them and that is always terrible for a democracy. its also a fetile ground for corruption and abuse of power. Imagine if Trump was unopposed…the many impulssive decisions he could have gone away with? Well EL is doing it in Zed, thats why without consultation HIV testing is mandetory overnight, no support structures, no preperations and people are freaking out, staying away from health centers. Just an example of how he is rulling unopposed. Very little free media- Only allowed to agree with the PF or else risk their existance, CSOs are toothless and opposition is too weak. HH is the first to blame for poor political…

  38. Splendid advice to HH, but knowing him as a sufferer of egoism, he will just discard this advice and continue with his odious mischief.
