Hakainde Hichilema is a cry baby and a coward-Lubinda

Share

Kabwata Member of Parliament GIVEN LUBINDA
GIVEN LUBINDA
Justice Minister Given Lubinda has slammed UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema for taking the country’s internal matters to the international community.

Mr. Lubinda has since described Mr Hichilema as a cry baby and a coward.

He tells Q-News that the opposition leader can only seek international justice when the local justice systems have completely failed.

Mr. Lubinda says the denting of the country’s image by Mr. Hichilema is disheartening especially when it is coming from a presidential aspirant.

He says whoever means well for the country should always speak well about the country and not dent its image.

Mr Lubinda has wondered why Mr. Hichilema would speak ill about the nation he has been working day and night to win the support of the Zambian people so that he become president.

    • What image is he denting. It is the PF that’s denting the good image of our country.
      When IMF looks at your country’s economic outlook as being risky be very worried because the next will be rating agencies giving you junk status. Just the level of corruption in the judiciary stinks never mind the other sectors of government !

    • There is nothing to hide but HH is coming up with fake stories so that he can win the international sympathy. that is a problem more especially that he is a presidential aspirant

    • Bo lubinda my cousin speaking ill about PF is not speaking ill about Zambia… Just like drinking gin and tonic while lungu is drinking Jameson with RB…. You see the difference

    • I see Hichilema in a reckless struggle for perception and support on wrong platform, lost the battle of demonstrating any rectitude. Like a philosopher without a philosophy, he has desperately fallen for highly flawed identity politics and class struggle he little understands. Character or traits and spirit of national state leadership material manifests itself in humility, authenticity and patriotism. These are not virtues we see in his politics of maligning Zambia in foreign capitals. When he says Zambia has turned from a receiver of refugees to an mass exporter of political refugees, where and who are those political refugees? President Lungu is not immortal but a fellow human-being prone to error yet with an open character of learning. Politics of insults, hatred, un-patriotism,…

    • …… President Lungu is not immortal but a fellow human-being prone to error yet with an open character of learning. Mature political competition resists temptation of maligning or conspiring against own country with foreign interest groups. Politics of insults, hatred, un-patriotism, conspiracy theories, sectarian causes and soliciting foreign interests for regime change no longer flies in contemporary political order. Look at Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Ivory Coast and Congo DR to mention but a few. These countries have never recovered from foreign directed anarchy. Instead, their resources have been left to vultures to share and build their economies back home. There is reason why Iraq never rewarded “Ahmed Chalabi” with the Presidency of their country.

    • The last time i saw lubinda was when pf was installing Edigar as party president at mulungushi in kabwe, boy we found him 10km away from mulungushi by the road side, he had ran away from been hammered by the jimbos, remember he also had presidential ambitions at the time, this is the man calling nsimbi ya ku bweengwa a coward?

    • Make a positive out of a negative mbo Lubinda!
      If HH says the nation is corrupt- fire the likes of Dora and other dubious characters.

      If HH says prison conditions are terrible and Zambia has become a nation of refugees-then fire the minister of home affairs for creating a police state.

      If HH is saying the economy is in freefall-please do the logical thing and let the Finance minister leave in peace and not pieces!

      Make a positive out of a negative by making changes to the current situation or else ba guyi come 2021 you will be the ones complaining about the legal system when HH-the wrong chap altogether who is becoming popular due to the (govt’s stupid own goals) wins and forms a govt that takes you bwanas to the courts!

    • I WONDER HOW ZAMBIA CAN BE WITH A HH AS PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA. ZAMBIANS HAVE BEEN BRILLIANTLY DECISIVE ON KEEPING HIM AWAY FROM PLOT 1. WELL DONE ZAMBIANS. UMWAICE NI CHIMBWI. HH IS SELF-CENTRED.

    • Iwe Governor, what fake stories does HH come with? Let me ask you: Wasn’t HH arrested badly? Wasn’t HH kept in isolation for 8 Days before he was formally arrested? Isn’t the Zambian Judiciary biased? Isn’t the Zambia Police Force selective in arresting political players in Zambia? etc… etc.

    • It is not a matter of being scared but exposing HH to the people of Zambia for his disgusting and betrayal behavior. It also your problem as UPND supporters for not advising HH correctly for him to win the confidence of majority voters. Even if he is your beloved president, when he makes such mistakes you need to correct him if you are to help him portray an election winning attitude or else he will again only win in 3 provinces.

    • The people of Zambia will vote not the international community. If the international community will vote hh will will carry the day but if not ECL is the man of the day.

  1. Which Judicial System Ka Lubinda? U mean u rooten, toothless courts? Leave HH alone cz u are just an example of a justice minister. eat! eat! time for reckoning in near….

    • …and IF by chance you came to power, you would want to use and manipulate the same “rotten, toothless” courts to persecute your PF “enemies” right?? No brainer, really…

    • hh IS A COLONIALIST’S POODLE PLAYING TO HIS MASTERS GALLERIES IN JOBURG AND LONDON..
      ZAMBIANS WILL NEVER ALLOW SUCH A SHAMEFUL PERSON WHO ONLY CARES FOR HIMSELF AND FELLOW TRIBESMEN AND REGIONALISTS TO RULE ZAMBIA.
      EVEN SACKUR SAW THROUGH hh IN THAT EMBARASSING INFAMOUS BBC INTERVIEW.
      SHAME ON HIM

    • YOU STOLE HH’S VOTES, INCARCERATED AN INNOCENT PERSON AND YOU BUST PROMOTING HATRED FOR HIM. GUESS WHAT, THE CHICKENS HAVE COME TO ROAST, YOU NEED MORE GENUINE PRAYERS.

  2. Everything that HH said on that BBC programme is already in the public domain world wide. So to me there’s nothing new that he said which should offend some people

    • Mr Lubinda stealing votes is supposed to be treasonable, because you think we are foolish you pretend as though they jus fell off a van. How are you going to campaign in places like Kalulushi next time?
      Lolo who will ever trust ECZ after the Kalulushi theft of HH’s votes, mind you 1200 is a lot for a small city.
      Like Governance Activist, Leslie Chikuse says fresh elections will be inevitable if the recent video confession making rounds on social media is proved to be true.
      A video in which United Party for National Development(UPND) Kalulushi Candidate Evaristo Mwalilino’s  driver  is revealing how Hakainde Hichilema and Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba’s Kalulushi Constituency  votes where concealed has gone viral after it was aired on Prime TV.
      In the video, Wanna Chiyanga is confessing…

  3. The truth will set you free Bo Lubinda. Why are you scared of what HH says? If what he says is untrue surely the international community would know. What do you think foreign embassies are here for? I think you are worried PF is losing credibility on the international stage but this is all your fault, nothing to do with HH.

    • If you watched Hard Talk and could read between the lines how the interview reacted to HH’s contradicting statements, you will know that they international community also know that Zambia is much better that what HH is painting it.

    • CHEAP POLITICIANS, NOW WE KNOW WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT, JEALOUSY AND ENVY. HH S CV IS UNPARALLELED AMONG YOU LOT, THE GOOD THING IS THAT HIS MENTORING AND INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS. MAY GOD BLESS HIM TO LEAD THIS GREAT NATION WHILE YOU ARE LIVE.

    • @Ken,
      How much do you know about BBC?
      Do you know why Lungu refused to be on Hardtalk?

      Speak from a point of knowledge.

    • Ken, it’s the interviewer who mentioned ( giving statistics) that Zambia is one of the hungriest countries in the world, not HH. Everybody knows that about Zambia. So what much better place are you talking about?

  4. Deep down his heart, Bo Lubinda knows that our judicial system is not a joke. He knows it, but to protect his job, he has to be seen to say something to defend his paymaster

  5. Why do these PF chaps run away from the truth you arrested HH on false charges the all world knows about it, HH has not been saying anything bad about Zambia but only the truth.

    • That’s what dullness and drunkenness breeds, not even on your mother’s farm can you do that. Mulando sewo bola, somebody will be required to account for all these abuses.

    • Yes that’s why HH went onto BBC Hard talk and made a fool of himself. Why cant we just call a spade a spade. HH tried to make Lungu look like he was bad but that backfired on HH. Face the truth people. HH was exposed to the world of what kind of man he truly is. And that’s a liar and a desperate man that would do anything to get into power.

  6. Never realised HH has become this powerful. One HH interview has wrecked havoc in the whole government. It was the president, then their SG and then Sunday Chanda, frank Bwalya and now Lubinda all over social media platforms talking about one HH. I was forced to watch the hardtalk interview because I thought the man sold the country only find the usual info known to all about PF recklessness in their governance style and their lack of observance of the law during elections. Cut it people and concentrate on securing the cheap imf loan. It will help you a bunch.

  7. Mr. Lubinda, I expected that after reading law for couple months you have learned little about Constitution, fundamental rights and freedoms and the Rule of Law.
    Unfortunately, it looks you are the same useless big mouth who cannot differentiate between Nation and the Government.
    As to exhausting local remedies before seeking redress at international level, please read UN Convention Against Corruption (Ratified by the Republic in 2007) and get ready to justify your and yours associates wrong doings.

  8. Hon. Lubinda is correct, 100%. hakainde has twisted truths so he can remain relevant and keep his supporters interested. Take for example, we successfully enacted a new constitution last year after it remained an issue of concern since KK’s days. Through FTJ, LPM, RB and MCS, this issue remained a hard nut to crack. I honestly think the country deserves a lt of credit for passing that hurdle and seriously, the Amended Constitution 2016 does have PROGRESSIVE clauses which will benefit the country greatly. Yet badaala, after teaming up with CSOs to push for the ammendment, he decampaigns the Bill of Rights and further embarks on a campaign to demonise ECL/PF and the government hoping the international community will sympathise with him and punish the government. Truth is the constitution…

    • I agree with you. Lubinda is correct. HH has exposed himself to the world as a incompetent desperate person. He is arrogant and a big liar. This is what happens when you are too desperate. BBC Hard talk taught HH a good lesson.

  9. …is progressive and will enhance good governance. This is what badaala and his mps should spend time discussing and planning about, so they can push the government through lawful channels (parliament) to put these clauses into action an avoid delay. Jack Mwiimbu is a lawyer, he was asking the speaker about matters on social media, why can’t he be on record to be the lawmaker who pushed for the PUBLIC PROTECTOR to be appointed and ably informed the nation of the progress?? Have you seen how significant the Public Protector’s work is helping RSA???? Yet badaala thinks he is the only “messiah”who can bring good governance to Zambia. Badaala is fast becoming a lost cause.

  10. Bo Lubinda, your system locks up a citizen for 120 days on trumped up charges and tells world the truth, you classify him as a cry baby? Whatever you are smoking that makes bury your head in the sand it would be best to stop it for your own good! You are not fooling anyone.

  11. ‘Denting The Image Of Zambia’ Is The Propaganda Sentence The Coward Pf Has Used To Decieve Their Cadres So As To Keep Themselves Relevant On The Political Scene And Discredit HH. But In Reality They Can’t Even Give Him A Platform To Feature On ZNBC Or Any Private Media Institution, They Block Him From Mobilising His Party Using The POA And Cholera Excuses.
    He Spoke On Hardtalk And They Are All Living In utopia. Hehehehe…!!!

  12. What is now bothering me as a PF die hard is that all my fellow PF supporters have left this platform to defend our party. You guys are too comfortable while we lose the plot. Its pissing me off that we so quite. Mark my word, we are going to lose 2021 if we continue to be so comfortable. Nothing is coming from the SG, Nothing is coming from the usual PF carders on social media. The quietness is so deafening. I am upset to say the least.

    • Its a measure of the sliding support and growing unpopularity. The PF cadres have waken up and seen the light. People can not be deceived forever. A time comes when even the staunchest cadre sees through the lies.

  13. So much damage has been done and PF have not come up with a damage control strategy, but to support the wrong that all can see through; fire tender saga, maizegate, road tenders, etc, etc. People see all this and begin to make informed choices.

  14. Where do you expect victims to go to when institutions of governance arent standing up and do their duties.You are retiring officers in national interest who haven’t done any wrong! Each day has its day and when you touch God’s anointed there are consequences

  15. Hon.Given Lubinda forget about evil HH.he can cry blood if he wishes abroad but on polling day in 2021,we shall put X on PF in large numbers in 6.5 provinces and DEFEAT HH FOR A RECORD 6TH TIME!!!those foreigners HH is embarrassing us to will never vote in Zambia. while his bantustan votes in 3.5 provinces shall ever be a drop in the ocean!!HH said he will stand in 2021 after electoral reforms.now how will upnd manage to do electoral reforms through parliament with 58 MPs?kikikikikiki.HH should know that 2021 will be conducted by same ECZ and under the same conditions as in 2016 or before!!!
    WE CANT WAIT TO KOLOPA HH IN 2021!!!

  16. Edgar Lungu and PF wanted HH to remain quite with all what he went through for the acts which we were denied to heard in the courts. HH is very factual and he should continue telling us what those brutal soldiers and police were doing against him in those horrow pictures. What goes up will come down and your time is fast catching up. Edgar Lungu committed serious crimes prior to last years elections that can send him to jail. Illegal salaries that ministers were receiving after dissolution of parliament, refusing to hand over power to the Speaker and many others. I really feel pity for Edgar Lungu.

  17. There is nothing untrue about what HH is saying , he is not denting the image of the country and pf know that. One doesn’t have to a Zambian in Zambia to know how rotten this country has become … the world is becoming closer and information /news travels like wild fire and it’s well known that our country is becoming unruly , dictatorial and divided along tribal grounds. Bring back the harmony that we used to enjoy as a country. Those in diaspora are scared of settling back there because of the poor state of governance. We will just continue sending money to our beloveds as Zambia is too scary nowadays….this is the asylum issue HH is talking about !!! He’s done nothing wrong by exposing what is already common knowledge.

  18. Some political parties’ writings demonstrated a clear picture of living in denial .they is really in denial.
    To be frank, very few opposition political party leaders of the current crop will beat hh’s record.
    His persecution and later on his personal wealth success record is not easy to beat.
    Many of the emerging political jokers want to rule the country but their own life is a nightmare.

    ONCE BEATEN TWICE SHY. SINCE WHEN DID PF SAID THEY COULD RECONCILE WITH HH. IF YOU ARE CHRISTIANS AS YOU CLAIM MR LUBINDA, IN YOUR MIND YOU HAVE NEVER EVER CONDEMNED YOUR RABIETIC EVIL RATS PF CADRES WHEN THEY BEAT AND KILL INNOCENT CITIZENS WHO JUST PUT ON UPND REGALIA AND NOW YOU WANT TO SHOW OFF THAT HH HAS SOLD ZAMBIA WHEN IN FACT IT IS YOU PF WHO HAVE MESSED UP ALL FOR ZAMBIANS. SHAME AND…

    • LUBINDA HAS FORGOTTEN THAT WE HAD NATIONAL PRAYERS JUST A FEW WEAK AGO, SO WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE? PRETENCE, LIKE A MASK CAN ONLY BE PUT ON NOT FOR LONG.

  19. Lubinda and PF should know that they can not direct the UPND how they want to do their politics, what they want to say,how they want to say and where they want to say…the fact is there is total break down of law and the judiciary in Zambia under Mambilima stinks with corruption

  20. One thing i dont get from hh is ,why saying long thing or right things according to him in other countries ,the platform and timing is totally wrong badala ,I think he must convince us here not in foreign countries also why is he the only opposition always spots wrong things ever and why freedom does he want ,what human lights does he talk about ,Dont think there no rule of law if you break it you have to face it period

  21. Ba Lubinda, when you pupu in your guts, as long as all your sheets are in your pants, no matter how much perfume you apply, flies will always follow you and at the end you will be ashamed infront of your visitors and friends. Put your house in order because PF has not only hurt the UPND but the whole entire citizens.
    Lungu and your leadership you have thrown us into the Dungeon.

  22. touch one touch all. they descend on you like bees if you touch u5 . he is a ka god.

    bloggers come from no where and flood the platform. some blogers even migrate zwd to defend ka u5

    if you think using tribe PRESS RED

  23. PF only knows how to shatapula people! You can control everything, you’re the cry babies in this case. If you respect people’s rights, HH would not be justified to complain about anything. Sometimes ba Minister silence is GOLDEN.

  24. Between HH and Lungu one is mad the other is timid, better find a suitable replacement for both otherwise the country will go to waste.

  25. Holding foreign conferences and dialogues is one way of highlighting the wrongs that pf is trying to hide under the carpet . If they want HH to talk about these issues in Zambia, they should then allow freedom of speech by opposition, on the ZNBS and stop arresting people who oppose their poor governance.
    Here is the thing; If a child is constantly being repeatedly ill treated by it’s own parents , would you expect this child to complain to the same abusive parents or would you rather this child complained to outside agencies for help? I would expect the latter !!

  26. This man called HH has never worn in his own party, the UPND. He has only achieved losses in Presidential competitions. He knows very well that if he was to register a loss in the PARTY ELLECTIONS, he would have lost it all. Am sure this is the reason why he cannot call for elections to prove his popularity within the UPND. There are many in the UPND who do not agree with his style of leadership.

  27. Can’t wait for HH to become the President of Zambia. Tamvutika even grass, mauzu (hay). We buying at K230/Bale. with a small herd of 120 animals. we use 10 bales per week. Calculate how much we are spending. Hoping it rains soon.

    • That will never happen. HH will never be President! 5 times beaten and too selfish to give another UPND member a chance to try their luck.

  28. We cant see HH on ZNBC to speak to Zambian people. HH please continue at least we can hear you on BBC and Aljazeera. If they want let the PF close BBC.

    • If bbc offices were based in Zambia, upon hearing that HH was speaking live, zp would have surrounded that place like mpashi. Some low minded pf cadres are now suggesting that they should with his passport, come guys in this modern communication era, even when he is comfortably sitting in his bed, he would have appeared on BBC.

  29. u5 has less than 40%

    how dig u5 kalulushi discovered by a driver
    lundazi
    munali votes in a bin discovered by maureen

    sata won convincely. among all parties he had highest number of mp.

    u5 all mps come from one village and he, is headman

  30. The issues is that HH is demonstrating South Africa politics in Zambia,the worst political strategy where apartheid is practiced, the white supremacists control South African lands and economy above 75% Being used by the white supremacists is not good for Zambians,last time we almost lost Zambia when privatization came in copper- rich – site of the country up to now Copperbelt hasn’t recovered from the wounds of privatization. HH is an emperialist agent even his attendance of Chatham peace forum was organized by the maimane and their co- groups of Anglo America. The white supremacists want to come back in Zambia and get our natural resources completely without any share with Chinese-mineral-explorers are coming to invest and do trade with African native societies through sovereignty…

    • what natural resources ? the Chinese and Indians have taken those for the next 40 years and if you were so rich in natural resources why are you begging the IMF for money ?

    • Look at your cousins across the Zambezi, failing to accout for $15 billion diamond proceeds, next they will blame the colonial masters.
      Zim mines minister Walter Chidhakwa has disclosed that teams of auditors tasked to trace the whereabouts of government’s missing $15 billion diamond proceeds are finding it difficult to get relevant information to facilitate the investigations.

  31. Zambia is the 3rd hungriest nation on earth what news is more damaging than this, Bo Lubinda? Where you not the minister of argriculure all these years, exception this one or was is it hh. It is you and pf that put Zambia on that shameful infect not hh.

  32. He tells Q-News that the opposition leader can only seek international justice when the local justice systems have completely failed.

    Lunbinda is crazy. There is no local justice in Zambia and there has never been and it will never be as long as PF-Foo-ls remain in power.

  33. Mr. Lubinda, your argument is senseless! Justice in Zambia is a pipe dream. The judiciary does not work. Any magistrate that rules according to the law is punished in some way e.g. Magistrate Mwelwa from Livingstone. UPND tried to get things done through the courts but the judiciary failed them. Now the international community is taking an interest in how Zambia is degenerating into a dictatorship. PF are the worst party ever! They have made Zambia a laughing stock and they are further damaging its image. Case in point, the roughing up of their own leader Kambwili at Sata’s memorial. What does Lubinda have to say about that? Coward!

  34. Kulibe aponya bonse bataka(No one has thrown a fist, but everyone stoops avoiding the blow). Both camps, UPND and PF are keenly following HH, is it because ECL is boring that HH is followed even when he travels 10000km away?
    Adivce to PF: Please…please follow ECL and please…please REKOGONIZE him as PRESIDENT or else he wont weki well, he needs morale!

  35. Ba Given, Hichilema clobbered you Lozi chaps out of the UPND, at least you know what he’s capable of. ULP is now Saki’s nashala neka party.

  36. Lubinda us Bembas will not allow you to be PF President.
    Go back to UPND and remove that Cow-ard . . oh he kicked you out. S#!T.
    Loser Lubinda.

  37. W are sick and tired of hearing about this scumbags complaints. HH nimbushi sana. We will live to regrate when he gets to state house.

  38. Lusaka times, please sort out your voting system, some people have discovered that you can now rig the system on your website.

  39. Under5!!! Bushe aka fikako ku 2021? Can you imagine, the whole party has no alternative leaders, not even Gary Nkombo, Stephen Katuka or Jack Mwiimbu? That is why Stephen Sackur was asking under5 whether after losing 5 times he wants to stand again in 2021. Because Sackur knows that in a democracy like Britain which under5 points to, a leader cannot be allowed to lead his party into losing five times, other leaders are given chance. When Neil Kinnock lost twice he was replaced by Tony Blair who won first attempt. Five times losing yamudabwisha umusungu Sackur!

    • !mbecile, you don’t know even how party leaders and PM’s are elected in UK, and yet, you are making comments to satisfy your pea size brain.
      For your info, between Neil Kinnock and Tony Blair, there was Rule by Margaret Thatcher and John Major.

  40. The Commonwealth Secretary-General reiterated the importance of the reconcilliation process being owned and led by Zambians with her office only playing the facilitation role. During hard Talk, Stephen helped see areas that could help him win the next election.

    Does HH have to cling to the Secretary General with both hands to hear these messages again?

    Let him come home to the round table for reconciliation so that the people at grassroot can regain the confidence in living as a united country.

  41. HH is no coward. If you spend time in the markets like I do you will know that HH has gained ground. PF policies have increased poverty, companies are reducing work force some are closing. So PF forcus on fixing probkems that are being highlighted y the opposition.
    Where do you want him to go, to the PF Police or courts?
