The United Party for National Development (UPND) has vowed to continue to telling the international community of alleged atrocities and constitutional breaches taking place in the country.

UPND Spokesperson Charles Kakoma says the ruling party should not cry foul when the UPND tells the international community on matters relating to the breakdown of the rule of law in the country.

Mr Kakoma says this is because Police have continued arresting its members around the country on trumped up charges.

He says the UPND has learned with shock that 16 of their members in Luwingu district in Northern Province have been arrested for unknown reasons.

Mr Kakoma states that the decision by the police to continue arresting UPND members on flimsy grounds is a serious violation of the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens.

He has since demanded the unconditional release of UPND members arrested by Police in Luwingu district

    • The opposition are not featured on ZNBC which is run by public funds and there are never featured on news nor Sunday Interview nor or anything. Completely black listed, for no reason at all. The opposition are not even allowed to hold rallies despite the constitution guaranteeing them those rights. And then the opposition should go to the international community and smile that all is well in our country. Niofuntha?

  1. Shame on you and your party. How can you destroy your own country by denting its image abroad and hope to rebuild it in future?

    • The denting has already been done, all HH is doing is praying for a Democratic future and working on relationships to immediately jump start our dead economy the second he secedes this country from its non-Democratic slump

  3. Its true Edgar Lungu raped our constitution during last year elections and should be indicted for treason. Ministers drew salaries and other illegal benefits when the clause in the constitution is very clear. He was advised by attorney general over this and on the stepping aside during presidential petition but never listened. Edgar Lungu was the Judicial, legistrature and was executive and how were the constitution going to be respected? One day someone will cry.

  6. Unfortunately, it is not the international community that decides who rules Zambia. PF will be talking to and showing Zambians that it can do what it promised. These UPND political under fives never learn from failure.

    Go ahead lick the feet of these guys and many Zambians will consider you selfish, unpatriotic and serving the interest of international capitalism.

    With this attitude PF has by default won 2021 already. It will only be a mere confirmation to be done.

  7. One prominent Zambian said this at MCS’s memorial: “THE PF IS A MASS MOVEMENT OWNED BY THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.”

    upnd spokesman: “the ruling party should not cry foul when the UPND tells the international community on matters relating to the breakdown of the rule of law in the country.”

    IS IT SURPRISING THAT ONE IS IN POWER WHILE THE OTHER HAS FAILED AFTER FIVE ATTEMPTS?????

    • Honestly calling 50.3% a “MASS MOVEMENT OWNED BY THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA”, just shows the mentality of PF Cadres who think everything belongs to them and they control everything and everyone.

      Nope, PF is NOT “A MASS MOVEMENT OWNED BY THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.”. This is rubbish.

    • @Shua shua: The last time the UN convened, president of the most powerful country on earth, Donald Trump, spoke of Burundi being a trouble spot in Africa. He never once mentioned Zambia. You see, his intelligence system and advisors told him of what is pertaining in Zambia: the tribal voting patterns, a rowdy and vile opposition, how Zambia has successfully held elections from 1991, how Zambia successfully adopted a new constitution before elections. YOUR VERSION OF THE BREAKDOWN OF DEMOCRACY IS BADLY SKEWED!!!

    • @ZambianCitizen

      Is your understanding of a Democracy based of off what Donald thinks? A president who is now being proven to have worked with the Russians to affect the outcome of their elections… I see what type of person you look up to now…

      Poverty increase, huge debts and export import deficits, freedom of expression under serious attack, media freedom non existent, taxs on the rise, kwatcha depreciation, horrendous state of infrastructure, displacement by government in financial gain.. all these things.

      Are these things you consider Democratic?

      If so, YOU, sadly, are the one with the heavily twisted view of what a Democracy is..

      Enjoy your day.

    • @Shua shua: Donald Trump just pointed to the fact that there is no crisis in Zambia, he has his own problems and that is for the Americans to deal with. He singled out Burundi and now DRC which have serious political problems. Poverty increase??? Food production has gone up and you still think there’s poverty??? huge debts?? And the roads, hospitals and bridges that have improved you expect them to be built for free??? Export/import deficit?? Copper opened at $6,805/ton and still rising, government is pushing a diversification agenda. Freedom of Expression?? In a dictatorship, would you see all the rubbish people post on LT??? Which Kwacha depreciation, Kwacha had hit K8.89n to a dollar, dollar strengthens globally and you want to rush to call it depreciation??? “horrendous state of…

    International community will not be in parliament however you are there to influence the system to work properly to favour everyone.
    If you cannot fight in the right forum how do expect an outsider to fight for you ,all need is to rise up to the challenges you face .

  14. UPND is not governing anything, their part is a sectional party, the only work they have is to destabilise our great nation with the help from outside the country. The UPND are just a group of childish citizens who think that Zambia is colonised and now they can use colonial tactics to get power with the help of greedy foreign business men and women. His excellence ECL is right that said that we need a well trained and resourced security services. Indeed a large sercurity force to protect our country from foreign vultures using our own disgrantled citizens who have adopted the same greedy for power without any regard for our own integrity and institutions. UPND only respects our institutions only when they rule in their favour. HH has no agenda for Zambian except himself.

  15. This underfive politician (HH) was celebrating that Trump would sort out dictators in Africa, his point was that Trump would help him (HH) to become president of Zambia. Zambia has institutions of her own that determines her leadership not any one else. Mazoka was probably miles ahead of his imposed successor (HH) who has clang on to lead the party without a convention. Does this mean that HH is UPND and UPND is HH?

  19. When people say HH will ‘never rule’ or like HE Micheal Sata refered to him as ‘under-5 politician’ , we should not run away from these two descriptions of him. HH has the fiscal power and to some extent, the numbers (Mostly in Southern, though) but he does not have the political tact to remain a formidable opposition. HH Should realise (Or be advised) that the talk of the ‘Petition’ will take him no where because even Muliokela knows that its ‘water under the bridge’ !
    HH correctly says there is a leadership crisis in the country but is he giving an alternative apart from crying how he slept on the floor and this pathetic word ‘petition’? The answer is NO.
    HH should exploit what is hurting the masses directly, poverty and such issues as the fire-tenders. Why should Kambwili have more…

    • …..Why should Kambwili have more ‘political initiative’ than HH on the fight against corruption ? HH and his team should have been the ones to lead the fight against corruption but all they do is weep over the ‘petition’
      HH flies miles and miles to go and talk about ‘human rights’ abuses when it was HIM and his UPND that fought against the very Bill of Rights that should have been protecting him even before his incarceration.

  20. I hope HH is taking copious notes from the Kenyan fiasco and from his colleague Raila Odinga. You don’t propose changes to the rules of the game when the soccer season has already started. Changes should be proposed before the season starts. The fight by Raila Odinga though it may look genuine is misplaced because Raila wanted changes to the electoral rules during a re-run. Who does that? And when his cries were not heard, he boycotts the elections, really? Now who was the loser in this? And how does Raila look now? So my advice to HH is if you think the electoral rules in Zambia are flawed propose those changes in parliament now. Zambia will not appreciate you wanting changes in the last eighteen or when one is about to take a penalty. We will just look at you as a cry baby and will…

  21. Reading through the blogs, one wonders if people are bewitched or brain washed. So sure that is the level where we are? HH should not go and talk ill about Zambia, Why? that is what we call treating symptoms insteady of the cause. You talk ill about the whites, after that you go to them to get loans? Trump this , that, but your president hires a plane with every Jim and jack aboard it just to visit America,We just talk for the sake of it, it is just hurting people that he has been invited. Let him share to the whole world about the broken rule of law. Why are you worried? You treat him as though he is nothing, let those who value him have him, talk with him and know more about the cruelty of this President. GO Go HH talk the whole world is listening to you. some people have no one to…

      Fimo ifintu bane tuleibwelamo !
      HH doesnt realise that a simple villager who is supposed to win votes over isnt worried about human rights but things that affect him e.g fertilizer, maize price etc. I expected HH and his group to launch a vicious campain against the low FRA prices but all the do is complain about teargas and one or two police constables sh1tt1ng on HH’s wallfence. Come on you guys !

  26. An innocent poor Zambian does even understand what HH talks about when he says breakdown in the rule of law or the freedom he is trying to get from outside. Freedom is not an issue to them because they know that they are free. Talk about industries to employ the youth, reduce the price of farm inputs, free education, fair price of farm produce. These issues can make you popular.

  27. The problem with HH is too much concentrating on ECL who will never vote for him in this life or next life. Just impress Zambians and their votes will be yours.
