Hakainde Hichilema with visiting Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty

Opposition UPND President Hakainde Hichilema yesterday morning held private talks with visiting Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty, Regional Director Deprose Muchena and Research Consultant Southern Africa Lloyd Kuveya at his residence in Lusaka, Zambia.

Mr Hichilema described the talks were mutual and centered on a wide range of issues surrounding good governance and well being of the nation.

He said issues of human rights, rule of law, constitutionalism, freedom of assembly, fundamental human rights and liberties also topped the private talks.

Mr Hichilema said, “We also showed the delegation how the State Police brutally damaged our house on 10th April, 2017 while forcing their way into our private home.”

“We stated that we have never declined any Police summon and court orders and that the 10th April, 2017 raid by the Police was peculiar and reasons for such an act can only be known by themselves(Police). We remain committed to ensuring a great Zambia for all.”

    • HH made a blunder to run with GBM, he should have chosen Ba Nalumango.

    • *Fuel pump prices increased as follows*

      Petrol…K12.97 from K11.67
      Diesel….K11.9 from K9.87
      Kerosene…K7.82 from K6.50
      LSG…K13.38 from K12.16

      Pray for forgiveness, for promising people. Saudi Arabian K5 fuel during campaigns, skyrocketing fuel prices ain’t sanity my friend.

    • Body language can tell that he has lied about Zambia again. I now think that no matter how we pray for this man he is hell destined. Even 10 overnights at his house may not work. Naturally evil he is.

    • That’s why it’s good to see someone last or second…because there is room for lying or adding more information to the actual story…I hope Lungu knows that he will end in Jail soo….all these visits by these organizations are not for fun…let the petition be heard.

  3. Hh does not understand the gravity of his actions in the Mongu incident, the people he was showing the damage to his house by by the police knows better that he was lucky not to be killed right there in Limuluga at the spot, he seem to understand very little about the office of President of a nation ,thanks Amnesty for putting some sense in this man.

    • Looks like this country has two presidents, one for them, and one for us, it looks like everyone visiting this country are visiting both new kasama and independence Avenue. People better get used to this, if not they risk dieing from high blood pressure.

  5. It is very sad that Halpha Homega (HH) is unrepentent and dubious. He’s actually mischievous, this life of self importance, arrogance, pride and entitlement won’t get him far in 2021. People are now looking to smaller parties for an alternative government.
    UPND legacy is destroyed under the watch of Kaponya (HH).
    “We also showed the delegation how the State Police brutally damaged our house on 10th April, 2017 while forcing their way into our private home.”

    • Zambian record on Human Rights, Rule of Law, independence of Judiciary and Corruption Index has not been destroyed by “under 5 child”. It has been thrown in the gutter by a convicted embezzler, certain Endemically Corrupt Leader of Plunderers Federation!!!

  6. The need for forigne aid is lungus undoing……for that forigne aid ,lungu needs to adhere to certain rules and standards of democratic governance. Without that need HH, saviour chishimba , kambwili and others would be in prision.
    Lungu and has never won an election without violence and intimidation and cheating , even PF was born from pangas …..

    I can predict here and now , if free and fair elections are held in Zambia, lungu will never win. If just after spending $10 billion he still had to use violence , intimidation and cheating win, I see no win this time round.

    That $10 billion and more borrowed will be like a chain round his neck as he knows without power prison beckons.

    • Indeed his only hope now is to bribe critics like kambwili and saviour chishimba into silence now while he waites for the IMF bailout and up to election time hope somehow the infrastructual investments pay dividents..and just before elections he will use the same violence, intimidation and cheating to win 2021 while he grooms his daughter for the presidency.

      If the international community , the West in particular put in place stringent democratic benchmarks with phased aid that Zambia desperately needs , lungu will struggle seeing a free opposition. Without banning rallies and violence by the police and his thugs lungu will be like a fish out of water…

    • @spaka the confused: my worry remains, hh has been competing for plot 1 since 2006, not just with ECL, and he has never won out of the 3.5 provinces; Are LPM, RB, MCS all “violent, bribers, intimidaters, cheaters with pangas”??? Or is it the will of the people to reject a known tribalist and plunderer who has tried 5 times to hoodwink the people into believing he is a democratic (no convention for 11 years!!) messiah who has the magic formula to our economy???

    • Corrupted zambian Citizen

      How many times did sata lose ?? Even if HH does not win , someone else will, lungu can not win any election without violence , cheating and using state police.

      Last time around the chap had just spent 10 billion but still had to cheat, use extrim violence that even amminesty international is for the first time in Zambians history is warning lungu.

      Even IMF bailout seems doubtful…..

    • @spaka the empty tin: Do not compare hh and MCS!! Let us focus on the individuals. You do agree hh has never won outside his bantustans, not so?? If hh was meant to rule this country, 2015 was his best opportunity. ECL was an unknown with no presidential ambition. He was simply chosen. hh by then had 9 years experience and 3 attempts. But Zambians still chose the unknown. hh was still confined to his tribal strongholds!! Right now he has no mp in C/belt, Eastern, Muchinga.

    • Corrupt Zambian citizen

      Ofcouse lungu lost the elections, if you want a true reflection follow the results of the referendum which was held in parallel with the presidential elections……and those PF MPs you mention most of if not all should be disqualified for illigally campaining while drawing salararies when parliament was dissolved.

      Besides all that just lungu refusing to hear the petition shows he was afraid of something and would rather be called a theif…

      Those prayers are for you theives to seek forgiveness for you looting while Zambians suffer….

  7. Lungu is a thorn in the Zambians’ eyes. Lungu has ravaged our Lives as Zambians. Why is Lungu such afraid like this that he has to strongly suppress our feelings as citizens. Lungu doesn’t deserve to be at state house because he stole power from HH. Even a grade 4 child knows that!

  8. Hh likes photos with foreigners and I think his photo albums are filled with these pictures trying hard to cleanse him self of his tribal tag by looking international forgetting that we the Zambians know him better and that foreigners don’t vote here.

  9. Sianga said the truth about HH.this man is cursed and he shall never win the presidency as he is full of himself!!
    Who cares about ZP damaging his chalala house?will the damage to his house put food on our tables?HH SHOULD BE TOLD THAT WE DONT CARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO HIM BUT ONLY CARE FOR MOTHER ZAMBIA AS ZP IS THERE TO DEAL WITH LAW BREAKERS!!Zambia was there long before HH was born and it will be there years after his death,so who is HH?he is simply one of those amature politicians.HH WILL DIE WHILE TRYING TO WIN THE PRESIDENCY!!those foreigners do not vote in Zambia and are free to visit whoever they want after meeting President Edgar Lungu!!am sure they also visited KK,RB,Kambwili,or whoever they want.BUT THOSE VISITS ARE NOT VOTES!!
    COME 2021 NI PF NAFUTI NAFUTI IN 6.5…

  10. It has taken HH to long in opposition which helped us the citizens to know the guy better and believe me you the general conclusion from a lot of people who follow events in this country is that the man is dull ,not that he is not educated no,but his natural dullness, he is vengeful and a bad heart and nothing will change him, his followers are like the followers of Trump who are racists (in our case tribal) the party needs a new kind of leaders and not GBM who is empty,it will be extremely difficult or probability impossible for these two guys the win the presidency, some of you people may disagree with me but eventually as time goes on you will remember this.

  11. @11 Non partisan, you can say that again, I know!

    As I have always said, U5 will always shoot himself in the foot at critical times. Just look at his 2016 campaign, instead of reinforcing his previous “economic manager” face and take advantage of the poor copper economy at the time, he changes tactics to GBM Kaponya corrupt type of politics and, lol, even chooses him as running mate!? for bemba vote which was never delivered. Today there is nothing left to show that this is a (now former) economics graduate. The boy does not listen to me, nor his own leaders like Jack Mwiimbu, Stephen Katuka etc, anyway he described them among the cowards which for once I agreed with U5.

  12. I bet U5 spent half his time boasting about his newly found “status” of Mukobeko hero, reminding the Amnesty chief that he U5 was tough tested. I am sure U5 was all “I this, I that”, repugnant stuff. Look U5, its not Amnesty or childish noise making that matters in politics, its political strategy which unfortunately you dont have.

  16. Well done Amnesty International top brass for, for weighing in on this, and frankly telling Lungu’s PF Govt the World is watching his ABUSE of Rule of law, constitutionalism, freedom of assembly, fundamental human rights and civil liberties.

    And well done HH for showing the delegation EVIDENCE of how the State Police brutally damaged your house on 10th April, 2017 while forcing their way into our private home, in spite of the fact that you have never declined any Police summon and court orders in the past.

    Your forgiveness and unshakable commitment to ensuring a great Zambia for ALL in spite of what you have gone thru is truly commendable.
    ..And the fact that all of those bloggers above, opposed to what Amnesty International stands for, have FAILED to respond to the points you…

  17. Apparently, Zambian news is boring.Everyday it is about politics, HH,Lungu,GBM.365 days in a year politicking, no real solutions to better common people. It is about power and wealth .They all look like philanthropy but are thieves who only care for themselves, family members and friends.
