Government says HH has nothing to offer the Zambian people

On the evidence of yesterday’s lengthy, disjointed, and rumbling press briefing, Government can conclude that United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has nothing to offer the Zambian people apart from his showboating and grandstanding.

Mr Hichilema’s three-hour briefing, at best, was testimony of what is wrong with his style of politics; at worst, it was proof that he is out of touch with the Zambian people.

From his briefing, an unstructured monologue that he himself and only himself could contextualise, it is clear that Mr Hichilema is full of himself and not even his closest allies in UPND know how to advise him.

Instead of laying down his programme of action for the coming four years as an opposition leader, Mr Hichilema wasted people’s time scavenging around the perceived wrongs that the PF Government have committed, name-calling and distorting facts.

But Government will not be distracted from its mission of turning around the country through well thought out policies that have seen countrywide infrastructure development including the building of roads, hospitals, airports and schools, to mention but a few.

Contrary to Mr Hichilema’s prediction of doom and gloom, Government’s focus for the coming years in the area of expenditure will be in agriculture, tourism, industrialisation and SME development, energy and logistics infrastructure, dismantling of arrears, health, education and social protection.

Contrary to Mr Hichilema’s untruths, Government will scale-up the utilisation of Public Private Partnership (PPP), particularly in infrastructure such as roads which will see job creation, protection of people’s lives from accidents, and improvement of people’s livelihoods.

Ignoring Mr Hichilema’s fears that the country’s assets have been auctioned through loans, Government will increase financing of its budget from domestically generated resources, targeting to finance 69.4 of the Economic Stabilisation and Growth Programme (ESGP) from domestic revenues. The ESGP is Government’s response to current economic challenges.

Contrary to detractors like Mr Hichilema’s assertions, in 2017, growth is projected to rise to 4.3 percent and at least 5.0 percent in 2018 and beyond. Inflation is projected to be sustained at single digit of around 9 percent before ranging between 6-8 percent during the medium-term commencing 2018.

The improvement in growth and other macroeconomic indicators is premised on effective implementation of corrective actions outlined in the programme.

Monetary policy will be re-aligned to Government’s fiscal consolidation measures without compromising inflation and growth objectives. Government will work towards dismantling arears owed to suppliers of goods and services, as well as contractors. Government will at the same time ensure that the country remains within sustainable debt levels.

All these principles are enshrined in the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP), 2017 – 2021 and it remains to be see what the UPND have to the contrary as Mr Hichilema missed the opportunity yesterday to tell the nation.
Zambians should, therefore, be wary of politicians who are nothing but proverbial armchair critics hell-bent to incite people against their elected Government.

Government also wishes to encourage bodies like the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) not to be cowed by the likes of Mr Hichilema, who at the same meeting assailed the regulator and claimed they want to close Prime Television. The IBA has summoned many stations before, even this year, and there has been no hullaballoo, so it is interesting that Mr Hichilema is so obsessed with the summoning of Prime Television.

Conversely, Mr Hichilema says there is no freedom of the press and expression in Zambia yet now Zambia has 115 radio stations and 44 television stations under the watch of the Patriotic Front Government. Zambians have never had the freedom to express themselves on so many different media platforms as they are doing now. And they are doing it with candour.

Zambians have been meeting and socialising in pubs, hotels and lodges and, therefore, it is surprising that Mr Hichilema sees Zambians consigned to their homes under the PF Government. Government will allow, the people of Zambia to speak for themselves.

    • Contrary to Mr Hichilema’s prediction of doom and gloom, the PF government has already purchased 42 fire-tenders at a low cost of $42,000,000 and due to no Eurobond this year PF government will borrow K11.2 billion domestically…

  1. Senseless Kampamba. So Mutati Already Predicted And Cheated Them That The GDP Will Be Growing At The Rate Of 5%?
    She Did Not Answer The Issues Of NRDC, Chimbokaila,etc Why Are These Institutions Going To The Chinese?
    Furthermore, Upto Date, Am Waiting For This Woman To Refute The Claims That She Buried 12996 Votes For Hh But This Is Now A Week That Story Was Aired On Tv She Has Not Done So.
    This Hule Should Leave HH Alone. And She Didn’t Explain Why That Headline.

  2. Sometimes its best to keep quiet. HH raised numerous pertinent issues which Kampamba has chosen not to comment on. Lungu govt is not recognized by HH and UPND becoz it stole the Petitioned 2016 Election.The Lungu govt is corrupt to the Core. All corrupt Electoral Institutions like ECZ, Concourt etc must be disbanded. Kampamba Mulenga should explain how she stole the Kalulushi Election as an MP and how she bought 12996 HH Votes for Lungu. We now know why Corrupt and Criminal Lungu rewarded Prostitute Kampamba Mulenga with a Ministerial Post. Even IMF has refused to Bailout such a Corrupt and untrustworthy illegitimate Lungu govt.

    • Only retards and kids would steal votes and burry them. What any thinking human would do is burn them instantly. Why bury them as if you’ll need them again. Upnd were busy chasing trucks prior to elections as a way of proving rigging. How many premarked ballots did they found.

    • Minimise eating beans, it’s not only helping you pollute the air but your head. Your thoughts are incoherent. To put it simple: unclear, confused, muddled, unintelligible, incomprehensible, hard to follow, disjointed, disconnected, unconnected, disordered, mixed up, garbled, jumbled, scrambled.

  9. Meanwhile, NO bailout package from IMF. Zambia rated high risk in terms of debt. Mutati plans to borrow about 11 billion kwacha domestically, and then the Mistress of Misinformation is there yapping!!!!. Shame. Anyways, you don’t expect anything from people that prioritizes thieving through overpriced tenders; Fire trucks and Lusaka-Ndola road…..

    • @ nsimbi stop pretending. Even here in aussie the external debt is so huge. Remember during the previous campaigns that the opposition used it against the govt.
      About vote rigging upnd shouldn’t even talk about it because these cretins proved it to all that rigging was not there through the number of trucks they chased and found nothing. These maroons chased and searched everything they suspected meaning rigging was not possible. Whon are you fooling today that someone stole votes and burried them. Kiki if you steal votes like that you burn them instantly. why bury as if you’ll need them in future. Kiki only kids and retards would do that.

  10. The only thing PF is offering is untold for corruption. They will even borrow all sorts of nkongole to appease their corruption. PF is a shame of a government and it’s amplified by it’s head ECL and mouth piece ballot thief Kampamba.

  11. If HH has nothing to offer what does Lungu and PF offer to the people of Zambia?Stolen Elections,massive corruption, visitionless and lawlessness. Even IMF has refused to Bailout a Corrupt and untrustworthy Lungu govt. The Lungu govt lies about everything. They even tried to conceal a foreign debt amounting to $3.2 Billion. Thanks to IMF their lies have been exposed. Lungu and his criminal and illegitimate govt offers to Zambians poverty and misery. Lungu’s govt is by the Criminals and for the Criminals; they are on a Mission to enrich themselves at the expense of the masses.

  12. Lesson number one: Governments do not say that about their citizens. Every citizen has something to offer his country and his people. Bear in mind that even opposition leaders pay taxes and offer job opportunities to fellow citizens. Through those jobs, governments collect taxes and are able to run government offices and programmes. I can go on but I think you have got my point.

  13. In the newspapers today, LAZ has strongly castigated hh for calling Constitutional Court judges corrupt, last week the BRE cancelled his invitation, Christian Voice cancelled his program. Has Badaala become toxic??? Like his twin in Kenya, Odinga, who after having elections nullified has withdrawn from the re-run, these losers are trying to remain relevant and have totally run out of ideas. Kampamba is spot on, if hh doesn’t talk of stolen elections, his supporters will lose the hope that the petition is still in court and they will be escorting him to state house soon. He has truly nothing to offer except his bitterness!!

  15. At least we are seeing were nkongele is going and what is being done e.g. roads, hospitals, schools, man in uniforms’ houses, building of toll fees, even building burnt buildings (markets & court building) the list is endless but what has HH done with the under hand he got from privatization? Who can’t even help to maintain his home school in Namwala. As for fire tenders forget those vehicles were bought before ECL came in and your information those vehicles are priced according to specifications if you need a useless one yes you can even get one at $158,000.

  21. And this under5 Donkeylet, every sensible Zambian (including some UP.NDonkeys) knows that he was locked up at Mukobeko due to his own st.upidity. The poor boy is trying to make a hero of this stu.pidity and everyone can’t help but laugh and giggle at him. Typical example of “The Naked Emperor”.

  22. And after three hours of hero worshipping himself at the “press briefing”, at the very end, Under5 goes like “I remain committed to dialogue with President Lungu…..to unite the country…”.
    ……kikikikikikikiki… are you sure this boy is sane? Or had he just received information that Patricia Scotland’s envoy is on the flight to Zambia?
    On the sanity bit I shudder what his wife must be going through…first missing husband incarcerated in a maximum security institution…. now living with some stranger fit for a medical institution somewhere on the highway to the country of what he calls rats…… sorry this one is no laughing matter guys, let’s help Mrs Hichilema to reclaim a husband from Hakambwili Hichishimba since UP.NDonkeys are cowards to help.

  25. That is an unfortunate misplacement of words coming from the “leadership”.Every Person within the bounds of this country has something positive to offer no matter the status .Therefore,leaders `words should be punctuated with positive sentiments of encouragement even to those you do not agree with.The less the speaking and more the action,the more respect you earn.Respect is earned.THINK AND UTTER POSITIVE KNOWING YOU ARE IN AN OFFICE FOR THE WHOLE NATION NOT AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE SETTLING PERSONAL SCORES:BE NATIONAL LEADERS!
