Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has revealed that Government has sold the National Resources Development College in Lusaka to the Chinese.

Mr Hichilema also disclosed that the Government has sold land where the Lusaka Central Prison known as Chimbokaila is situated to the Chinese.

He said the Government sold NRDC to the Chinese’s AVIC International as pay back for the huge loans that the country has contracted from that country.

Mr Hichilema says Government is lying that it will construct a new NRDC in Senior Chief Shakumbila of Shibuyunji district but that the truth is that the Chinese are only interested in the vast amount of land at NRDC situated on the Great East Road.

He said if China is interested in development a new agriculture college in Zambia, it would have been prudent to rehabilitate the old campus infrastructure at the existing NRDC than building a new one.

Mr Hichilema said Government has sold NRDC to the Chinese and went and acquired cheaper land in Shibuyunji with the hope of shifting the College there.

He said the NRDC transaction is a just a tip of the rampant corruption taking place under the PF government.

Mr Hichilema charged that the PF government is busy selling everything that belongs to the Zambians.

He disclosed that the land where Chimbokaila Prisons is located has also been sold to the Chinese.

“They are selling everything, they sold NRDC, they have sold Chimbokaila and now they have corruptly finished all the tenders,” Mr Hichilema said.

He added, “What we have is a rotten government, a corrupt government to the core. Beyond ambulances procurement, fire tenders, auditor general’s report findings and fertilizer procurement, there is serious corruption.”

  1. This is what an opposition is expected to do, not silly arguments such as Lungu you are not the president while the facts are that he is. Your job HH for now is hold Lungu accountable for his decisions. If you go this path HH then you will win my support. Bushe HH waumfwa?

    • THIS IS A DISTRACTION
      HH YOU MUST EXPLAIN THE ACTUAL SOURCE AND AMOUNTS OF THE MONIES THAT YOU HAVE BEEN HIDING IN TAX HAVENS.
      ZRA AND OTHER AGENCIES SHOULD PURSUE THE MATTER TO IT’S LOGICAL CONCLUSION.
      SATA WAS RIGHT ABOUT THIS CRUUK

    • I didn’t see the sale tender. I would have applied to purchase as well; but, perhaps that is what raises the suspicion. Why sell privately if it is a clean sale?

    • – Sure sure you sell ZNBC to tu CHONCHO-LEE
      – Then you go on & sell Luburma Market to tu CHONCHO-LEE & have the local traders evicted
      – Gutted Lusaka City market was also sold to a kama CHONCHO-LEE woman
      – ZCCH-IH was sold to Israeli shelf company owned by Lungu
      – RATSA functions sold to Lebanese Lamise & Austrian company Kapisch which did e-Tolls which was rejected by South Africans

      – Now NRDC & Chimbokaila is being sold to tu CHONCHO-LEE
      – Next is UNZA & CBU. We hear of Police guarding house owned by CHONCHO-LEE

      – Lungu’s PF is the most use-less Govt Zambia has ever cursed to govern

    • The fact that HH says:
      They are selling everything…. tells you that he is desperate to score a cheap point.

      What does he mean they selling everything. Have they sold or about to sell his farm land too

    • I like the way Peter Sinkamba presents his cases, sounds more credible.
      Immediately I see such sentence like “…the PF government is busy selling everything that belongs to the Zambians.” without proof, then I am suspicious and I cant buy into these accusations.
      Also, considering the timing, this accusation is coming after the paradise publication which would, to many, appear to be a way to deflect attention

    • In addition to selling strategic land and contracts to the Chinese and other foreigners, it is busy allowing money laundering at a massive scale.
      For a few dollars, Mopani is able to transfer billions of dollars every year to Switzerland.

      For huge kickbacks the Chinese are allowed to break labor laws with impunity.

      For a familariasation trip to China with a big shopping bag, some of the rulers are willing to allow foreign financial institutions , banks, insurance companies, micro financiers to externalise billions with paying any tax at all on Zambia.

      For a few free rides government is facilitating the land allocation to all kinds of Tom dick and Harries

    • How can it be payback for the huge loans when its not the construction company that issues the loan…the loans that we have got from China are worth billions of dollars. Yes there is corruption but why not instruct MPs to chase up this in Parliament.
      Dont do halfbaked investigations like Tayali…

    • And Haikande also sold Lima bank, ZCCM Ltd, Sun Hotels and many others and only him benefitted. So, he mighty speaking based on his own many years of experience selling public properties crookedly. Therefore, it is prudent to listen to him on this particular subject.

  2. Wamona nomba what u first started and thought it will end there…u sold the mines for a song and left most miners in misery. That’s why u can never campaign on the Copperbelt with your head high coz it haunts u to the core. You started the corruption when Chiluba gave u a contract of evaluating the mines. Remove the log out of your eye before u pluck out the one in your friend’s.

    • @Hamusankwa Hamadudu.

      HH was never involved in the privatization of mines. Valentine Chitalu, Francis Kaunda, Nawakwi & Syamukayumbu Syamujaye, FTJ were involved in the dismantling of ZCCM.

      HH worked for auditing firm Cooper Lybranth which was involved in liquidation of failed ZCCM mines. Don’t be lazy to google. STOP peddling LIES to justify your thieving brothers who have looted the country.

    • I dont know whether some Zambians live in dreamland. Time and again HH is accused of selling the mines. That is the most crazy accusation I have ever heard considering that it is a well known fact that HH did not have the final say who buys what but some gullible Zambians think that it is HH who sold the mines. If HH fooled the whole govt machinery to sale the mines for a song,then he has to be a very intelligent man who deserves to be given an opportunity to rule this country.

  5. HH Oval head stop the under5 stories. We are not finished with you yet until you bring back the money you corruptly store with the mmd regime of ftj. Now we are able to connect all the dots properly because that evidence from paradise heaven was the only missing link. You can’t start talking about nrdc which is in the public domain already and decide to ignore your big loot. Stop kidding us and diverting the real corruption by yourself.

    • With all fairness, if we have state agents responsible for TAX evasions, I am surprised they are not taking action.
      So lock him up if he has broken any tax laws, why do you stop at writing rubbish instead of taking action? Surprisingly enough, almost all bloggers are st.u.pidly asking HH to explain. Very few, if any at all, are asking the ACC to investigate. HH will not tell you anything beyond what he said yesterday, therefore, all the must.ur.bations request for him to explain are useless.
      Why has Kapamba Mulenga or Chanda and team kept quiet without commenting?

    PF Govnt hasnt sold NRDC and Chimbokaila.infact if its true that Chimbokaila and NRDC will be relocated outside town then its a good move because since the time KK built those facilities,no other Govnt has improved them so they are in very bad condition!!
    HH IS AN ANTI-DEVELOPMENT MAFIA BECAUSE HE KNOW TOO WELL THAT SUCH HUGE DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS DONE BY PF ACROSS ZAMBIA REDUCE HIS ALREADY LITTLE CHANCES OF WINNING THE PRESIDENCY!!!
    if its true then please PF Govnt go ahead and build new and modern NRDC and Chimbokaila.FOR YOU KAINDE,PLEASE PAY BACK OUR MONEY WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN HIDING IN BERMUDA!!

  8. How come this unrepentant chap has never commended Government on positive developmental issues that we have all witnessed under President Lungu yet he goes to praise foreigners? I dont even know whether this HH understands that Zambia has had serious and good politicians before who contributed to Zambia’s well being. The only thing this guy thinks about is the stolen money he has hidden in off shore accounts and thinks money can buy everything including souls.
    The chap has even forgotten that just last year, his own poor tribesmen in Namwala complained bitterly how he has stolen huge chunks of land from them for the sake of loving money. HH, you are pathetic chap this country has ever seen believe it or not. Why are you scared of having a convention within your dead UPND? Til you come…

  9. IM REALLY SUPRISED FOR PEOPLE TO COMMENT THAT GOVERNMENT AGENCIES MUST INVESTIGATE HH FOR HIDING THE MONEY IN TAX HAVENS. INVESTING MONEY IN COUNTRIES OR PLACES THAT HAVE RELAXED TAX RULES IS NOT ILLEGAL BECAUSE AN INVESTOR IS INVESTING IN A COUNTRY WHERE INVESTMENT RULES ARE ATTRACTIVE IN TERMS OF TAX IN THIS CASE. HH IS JUST AN INTELLIGENT BUSINESS MAN AND HARDWORKING, HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE MONEY, HE KNOWS THAT IN SUCH PLACES(TAX HAVENS) HE WILL MAKE MONEY AND NOTHING IS ILLEGAL ABOUT THAT(UBUTUTU BUBI). DO YOU THINK BY NOW GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE NOT POUNCED ON IF HAD STOLEN OR HE HAD BEEN EVADING TAX. HH IS NOT AN EDUCATED ILLITERATE BUT AN EDUCATED LITERATE. THAT MAN YOU CAN SEE EDUCATION IN HIM.

    • And what role did Zambia Privatisation Agency play? Wasn’t the sale clearly documented, tender process open etc… Once again again Zambians failing to deal with an issue at hand. You are free to ask HH questions any time. But Please, let’s challenge Govt on these 2 deals NOW. Is your hatred for HH so much that it blinds your sense of reasoning? Or are you counting such blatant corruption amongst the so called positive things PF has done for mother Zambia? These guys are looking at selling everything they can. HH is not in power and hence let’s demonstrate our love for Zambia by asking for answers from our Govt. Let them tell us if indeed they have sold our assets, why, how much, where the money is going, how the buyer was selected and how these deals are good for Zambia? If they give…

    • @Terrible: There is nothing wrong in selling dilapidated Govt buildings as long as it is done in a transparent manner, through an open tender system. Single sourcing is what most patriotic Zambians are complaining about. Govt buildings belong to the people of Zambia and not to any single political party or group of people. While you wish other people bad, always remember that prisons are for all of us including you. Not all who are in prison today are guilty.

Under5 said it himself, in trying to justify his cries to Stephen Sackur, he said all his (not our) problems can be solved by starting with basics, i.e. democracy. He must have been thinking about the “democracy” in his so called party, which really is nothing but a bunch of Donkeys who don’t know what they stand for or what they want, not even the meaning of basics like democracy or corruption or love for your country.

  25. They are using consultants. These write evaluation papers on NRDC and the Land near Chimbokaila they then give PF various scenarios and get their fees its up to the PF to follow or reject the consultants options. So if they have chosen to sale to AVIC that cannot be the fault of the consultant. His is to make money that’s all. Similarly, for fire tenders and ambulances the business men simply tender and make an offer they have no control on the selection except to put in a better bid with clear financials prepared by a consulting and audit firm, once the bid is successful the consultants can then go and buy cattle land and even bid for president and appear on cnn, try to outrace the presidential motorcade that’s a consultant for you…

  30. How lazy can you be to simply research the truth? HH was not in government and never sold any mines. That was a government decision. He worked for a private company that was hired to work out the modalities from a purely technical business point of view. Auditing and asset ascertainment. Haters have a knack to stick to irrelevancies and false accusations without adducing evidence in order to further their political agenda of painting any challenger in the most extreme negative face as possible.

  31. HH is the most irritating human being on earth. Privatisation issues cannot come from HH because every Zambian knows he and MMD sold huge Zambian properties and made us poor. What is chimbokaila even if his story was true. Who pays to go to chimbokaila prison to attract the investors. If it was any other person saying this I can understand not HH. He should just continue talking about his petition of his lost elections. These are the people called POMPWE MUNSHIBILA INSALA.
