UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema
UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema
Outspoken former ZANASU and now MMD youth Prince Ndoyi has poured called water on the invitations extended to oppisition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema by the Chatham Housa who have invited the opposition leader to give a presentation on the state of Zambia’s democracy.

Mr Ndoyi described the invitation as “mere political propaganda meant to portray Hakainde Hichilema and his UPND as having international acclaim.”

He said Mr Hichilema and his party have no moral right to lecture anyone on Zambia’s democracy because they do not believe in democracy as there has never been any semblance of intra party democracy in their party since he took over as party president almost 13years ago.

“HH and his UPND reserve no moral right to be given a platform to lecture anyone on our country’s DEMOCRACY anywhere in the world because they don’t represent democracy neither as a virtue, a value nor indeed a belief. What is democracy according to HH and his UPND? Could it be an endorsement by the Chatham Think Tank that democracy is only but a theory which can only be practised by those in government. Shouldn’t it be seen to be embraced and practised intra the opposition political parties as well.

“Hakainde Hichilema has held on to UPND leadership for the past 13 years and has attempted the presidency 5 times. It is indeed shameful for HH and his UPND to even condemn President Lungu on his ambitions to stand in 2021 because unlike him President Lungu has only attempted the presidency twice and has won on both occasion. UPND has no democracy as an institution that’s why since HH installed himself as president, there has never been elections,” he said.

Mr Ndoyi challenged the institutions which have invited Mr Hichilema to explain the basis for his invitation as certain questions relating to intra party democracy in their party remain unanswered from the UPND and its leadership.

“We want the people who have invited HH and his UPND to answer the following questions;
How did HH get to the UPND presidency? How long has HH been the UPND president? How many times has he stood in general elections? Who in the UPND leadership was democratically elected? These are the simple questions HH and his UPND have failed to attempt to answer back home. How then do they answer bigger questions on platforms abroad. The only thing HH will go and do abroad is to speak ill of our country,” he said.

He observed that it was shocking that the UPND leader was going to recieve an award to recognise him as a freedom fighter when he has been boycotting African Freedom Day celebrations.

“Isn’t it shocking that HH is on a flight to receive an award recognising him as a freedom fighter? When in fact Hakainde Hichilema has been boycotting African Freedom day celebrations let alone Zambia’s Independence Day Celebrations, since he became UPND president.

“Hakainde Hichilema is neither a Democrat nor a Freedom Fightre, he is just but a business man who is in politics to use political power for his businesses. Therefore, the institutions his friends are using to give him credence are historically misinformed and morally bankrupt,” he said.

Ndoyi also noted that the recent discoveries of Oil and Gold deposits have attracted attention from multi national corporations who want to usurp power for there benefits.

“We are aware that Zambia is all of a sudden receiving attention because of the recent discovery of oil and gold deposits, that is why political power is at the top of the agenda for Multi National Corporations. We want to urge HH and his UPND to desist from using foreigners’ platforms to discredit the nation in their desperation to get their endorsement or in their hope to get help from the said Multi National Corporations to win the next elections,” he said.

Ndoyi added that UPND could be soliciting for international platforms through their president’s “friends” who he said he should instead use them (friends) to help bring in foriegn investment.

“…Therefore, we warn Mr Hichilema’s foriegn friends that continuing to do so they risk portraying HH and his UPND as an agent of state capture or indeed colonialists.

“Instead of using his so called powerful friends abroad for the benefit of Zambians through investments. Unfortunately, HH is using them for his personal glory. He should even be embarrassed to receive such awards because he had never fought for freedom let alone the fight for democracy and multi-partism. While others sacrificed and fought for the reintroduction of multi-partism, the only thing HH is known for is his alleged business involvement during and after privatisation,” he said.

On the candidature of the African freedom award, Mr Ndoyi wondered as to which category Mr Hichilema had been nominated.

“Finally, when an ordinary Zambian hears Freedom Award one would think HH was a freedom fighter who contributed to our independence or for the independence of other African States. Or that perhaps HH maybe fought for the underprivileged on a grand scale philanthropy basis dealing with Malaria, HIV, Cholera, poverty, hunger eradication, agriculture and food systems sustainability, good education access for all especially girls, healthcare for all, gender disparities etc but instead he shuns every opportunity to be helpful. Like recently were HH and his UPND boycotted the referendum, an opportunity for Zambians to enhance their social and economic rights,” he wondered.

    • I must say that ndoyi has actually said my mind. It’s indeed shameful for hh to claim that he represent anything democratic or freedom.

    • My point here is so simple:
      Why don’t you invite HH to ZNBC and challenge him to a debate where such questions can be asked? You have deprived him of local Zambian Media coverage and you are surprised he is seeking international media coverage? Who is to blame? Zambians are asking questions to both ECL and HH, why don’t these two leaders address the questions? And you can only do that by having them in front of the masses, via ZNBC and let them answer the questions. By bursting off HH through LT, its simply is NONSENSE and LOW GRADE. Even if you have good intentions, the expectation that HH will answer your call is zero. BTW, you are not solving the root cause. Therefore, Ndoyi is just looking for cheap publicity. Period.

    • No political party in Zambia has ever practiced intraparty democracy. The practice of the concept is a cinch.

      KK alienated his fellow freedom fighters, Chiluba’s “sad term” campaign was met with push back, he ended up hand picking his party president and national successor, Sata and PF were synonyms. For this reasons the parties have a short shelf life. But Zambia lives on.

  3. I must be behind the times Prince where has the oil been found.. As for gold limited research will show you that zambia has always had gold sustainably. The copper mines reap it whilst processing the ore… the black Mountain in kitwe has economic levels of gold for recovery.
    Prince you continually try hard to promote your own relevance. As an MMD youth with no doubt contact with our ex president RB have you been able to utilise his undoubted list of foreign friends to promote their involvement in the zambian economy…..for the betterment of zambia as a nation rather than for personal gain,be it financial or for recognition.

    • I call it “Bowman Lusambo-ism.” Vilify HH long and hard enough and Lungu gives you akapoto.

      Lungu was Sata’s lieutenant of violence. Remember the Chawama blood bath? Lungu was the “commander.”

      Ndoyi is simply bidding for a job in Lungu’s PF. Ask Frank Bwalya who called Sata names. All he did was insult HH long enough and he was in. But once in he toned down and Lungu does not like that. He wants perpetual zombies around him.

    • Pimbilimano, Oil blocks have been awarded to different companies who are currently doing exploration. Let’s face it, the man has raised many points.

      Mmusi Maimane is a coward who thinks he knows it all, Mmusi DA is just a noise maker. HH is arrogant, stubborn.

      1.How long has he been UPND president? ?
      2. How many elections has HH contested? ?
      Has the UPND held a convention to elect it’s leaders? ?

      3. Why was the Vice President -GBM not acting as president when HH was in remand prison? ?

  4. Ndoyi , that is a very correct statement and I hope our beloved statesman would take self introspection especially regarding his statements to the world about Zambia and the kind of foreign people he gets along with. It should worry all well meaning Zambians about what kind of investors he will bring in the country when and if at all he will head our country. It looks very clear that his sponsors will capture our state once he is in office. This man is slowly but surely diluting my confidence in him and seriously dismissing me from his group of supporters. Very sad what has become of this man. Both in his face and in his voice betrayal of his own country is clear to see and hear to every one.

    • What did you think when Sata said: I will go to any length to end poverty in Zambia. If it means talking to Bin Laden, I will.

      What happened to the $27k he wanted to bring in thru OT International airport?

      He went on to become president.

      RB, Sata, EL told you about their vices. They demonstrated them and you did nothing. Why are you prejudging HH? He has not done/said anything to judge by.

  5. Prince, muntu wandi, walasa!! These neo-colonoalists preach democracy but want to manipulate it to suit their needs. Sadly badaala is their pawn, like Tsvangirai, Odinga, Maimane. They thought they fixed the 70s dictators with democracy thinking they can always come back to control Africa, sadly the very democracy gave that power to the populations!!

    • Get your own house in order before you claim others being dirty.
      Your “neo-colonialism” peach is just a myth that is holding you back. Just take a few minutes and reflect by asking yourself, what is PF doing wrong that is driving the opposition to seek outside attention? I am sure you know the answer.

  7. “`Muamar Gaddafi’s Prophecies:

    “I will not go into exile to any foreign country. I was born here in Libya, and I will die here. This country was a dessert, and I turned it into a forest, where everything can grow.

    No one Love this land more more than its citizens. If Europe and America tells you that they love you, be careful. They love the wealth of your land. The oil and not the people. They are helping you to fight against me but, it will be more wise for you to fight against them because they are fighting against your future and progress.

    My message to you the people of Libya is, they are helping you to kill me but you will pay the price because you will suffer. And my message to you America and Europe is, you will kill me, but be ready to fight a never ending TERRORISM…

  9. Let them award him with this fake award. Zambians will award him with a vote of no confidence for his betrayal. He is still coming to the same Zambia he plundered during privatization but still speaks ill of it to the outside world. He has again made another political error which will cost him the 2021 election.

  10. Exactly the point Mr Ndoyi. Also the cowardly Patience of UPND leaders who always follow one man blindly. Does it mean, there is constitution in UPND which stipulates the timeframe for intraparty election? Does it mean all other leaders in UPND are dull and only HH is intelligent enough to run the party? Its a shame. 13 years at the helm of the party without challenge is not a joke. What if this man tested real power, he can declare himself life president. Zambians, we must be careful.

  12. Genuine patriotic Africans fully understand the mentality on the agents of western imperialist machinations. If there are any members of UPND endowed with intellectually-packed grey matter to appreciate the plight of the African peoples, they should be pondering on: the links forged by HH with General Obasanjo of Brenthurst Foundation; reasons as to why HH has been shunning to seek advice of Kofi Anan, Barak Obama, notable black American Human Rights crusaders in USA, South Africa’s C. Ramaposa,Butelezi, Zimande, Kenya’s Prof. Patrick Lumumba, Tanzanian President. Instead HH has opted to seek for wisdom of Donald Trump, Maimane, Odinga, Malema and a consortium of notable plunders within Zambia. Just food for thought

    • One thing is 100% correct.

      Neither you Mwansa Kabinga nor you Kev Munde are “…endowed with intellectually-packed grey matter…” to understand “…the plight of the African peoples…” who have been subjected to poverty, hunger and slavery by their own fellow African CORRUPT demagogues masquerading as “governments”

  13. Zambia has had its version of Indian (the Mathanis) and Black Zambian (Mmembe, Nchitos,etc) GUPTAS who formed the cartel to successfully exploit President Mwanawasa and President Sata to milk Zambian resources. This Cartel has been ruthless on Late President Chiluba, RB and ECL for refusing to be trapped into their plundering ventures. It is only recently that HH, GBM and Kambwili have exhibited their true vicious traits against their own peoples.

  14. I wonder weather HH is intelligent enough to know what he is getting into.
    If he knows then he must a crook who wants to sell this country to imperialists.
    By the way what freedom did he fight for in Zambia that is misplaced and what democracy did he advocate ; when his party has never practised one it is mockery.
    HH doesn’t deserve anything from any well meaning institutions , you can be suspicious to what he is doing to our nation.

  18. Everyone knows about the agenda of this German click that claims to be christian and fighting for democracy. All they are doing is propup leaders they can use to achieve their goals. Zambia is very attractive to the outsid world because of our peacefulness, political stability and relatively educated and skilled labour force. Many foreign camponies are itching to come to Zambia and invest. But this you man(HH) is doing all he can to demonise his own country. At the same time he is fighting tooth and nail to go to state house. Our only consolation is that the employers (electorate of Zambia) have a differnt criteria for appointing their heard of state and this principle has not dawned in the young(HH) man’s medulla oblangata.

    • Those of you who were old enough must remember this statement by the whites colonialists: “THE COUNTRY IS YOURS BUT THE MONEY IS OURS.” By flattering gullible HH with fake awards and false international attention, the white world is telling him this: WE CAN HELP YOU GET THE COUNTRY BY MAKING YOU POPULAR, BUT REMEMBER, THE MONEY IS OURS!
