UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has called for unity of purpose in families and in the nation in order to foster peace economic development for all.

Mr Hichilema said this on Thursday morning at the University of Zambia SDA Church in Lusaka during the funeral service for late Chimbamilonga Member of Parliament Brian Sikazwe.

Mr Sikazwe was Chimbamilonga MP from 2006 to 2011 and was the UPND’s 2016 parliamentary candidate.

Mr Hichilema was joined in by Finance Minister Felix Mutati in the send off ceremony for the late Mr Sikazwe.

The UPND leader encouraged fellow mourners to remain hopeful of a greater tomorrow even amidst social and economic challenges.

And Mr. Mutati also echoed Mr Hichilema’s sentiments that there is need for Zambians to put oheads together when the country’s economy is on its knees.

He also stated that when the economy is poorly performing a time such as this, no one is spared of its harsh results.

Mr Mutati also thanked the UPND for its efforts in standing for and on behalf of the less privileged both in good and bad times.

“We want to encourage all of you, to remain optimistic and when in times of sorrow, look to God while physically doing something about difficult times. To our departed brother, we say go well brother Sikwaze, and to us still alive, we are challenged to even work harder for the better as our brother did when he served at various levels of his life, Mr Mutati is quoted as saying.

This is according to a statement released by the UPND Media team.

  1. Well spoken for once Mr HH, and if you continue with the same spirit, you may just win the trust of Zambians to take you to state house. Humility and sober mind is more important in every leader. It shows maturity and responsibility. Unit is cardinal in taking our country forward. We are one.

    • Is Mutati and his faction joining UPND? AHEAD OF 2021: 1. Mutati was recently in Mongu with Nakachinda at AKAs residence, 2. Mutati confirms that the country is at its knees economically at an opposition funeral, 3. Mutati has refused to join Lungu’s PF, 4. Look closely, Mutati opted to distribute RB Chitenges than those of Lungu’s PF! Are these mere coincidences – PF wake up, this man will pull a bigger surprise than Kalaba; HE KNOWS ALL CASH DEALINGS OF THE PUUFs

    • One of them is not telling the truth. The Minister must know what he is talking about. We feel it too.

    • As usual you are WRONG. They even hug.
      Strange that LT “reporter” forgot to mention that Lubinda was also present and shook hands with HH.
      It looks that your knowledge of politics is equivalent to the size of your brain, peanut?

  2. Why is that we only get United and use palatable language when there are funerals? So do we need more funerals to be peaceful and loving people.

    • When these politicians of all sorts are busy sharing girlfriends, playing Golf at elite clubs, poor people like you are busy hacking each other at the tarven, cursing off each other on facebook, lusaka times and evicting each other from the markets. All this because of the statements you hear from znbc and other media.
      And they are all laughing all the way to the bank.

  3. Its either we are good pretenders or foes.

    I have observed that whenever someone prominent passes on,
    both ruling party leaders and their opposition counterparts tend to
    to preach unity, love and peace. Hugs and kisses would be the order
    of the day.

    When it comes to politics and governance, it’s insults, accusations,
    insinuations and lawsuits all at the expense of the deciding populace.

  4. Lusaka Times should tell Zambians that the late MP was the MMD MP from 2006 to 2011 in Chimbamilonga then stood on UPND in 2016 and lost terribly to PF!!!
    Whoever tries to stand on UPND in the North and East,just wastes his or her money and time because this ***** party is hated in those areas just like PF is hated in *****land!!GBM,Levy Ngoma and Patrick Mucheleka have learnt it a harsh way after making wrong moves to Kainde’s UPND!!Parliament is now a no go area for those former MPs stated above!!!
    Hope many politicians have learnt a big lesson.Harry Kalaba,Kambwili will be victims in 2021 since PF wont adopt them!!ITS A PITY THAT MANY POLITICIANS HAVE EYES BUT THEY CANT SEE-HH HAS FINISHED POLITICAL CAREERS OF MANY PROMISING POLITICIANS AND THATS WHY GBM IS QUIET TODAY!!!

    • Njimbu you are speaking my mind. Analysing these politics too well so to say. These others really do not know.Do they think Karaba and Kambwiri can they win at all levels against PF? Wether at constituency or at a national level they cannot win against their former party which is PF.

    The writing is on the wall. PF scored a political own goal !!!

  8. The culture of violence which PF & Lungu has introduced to Zambia through Kaizer should end; we are all Zambians and no need to injure or kill each other because of politics;

  9. Mutati led a MMD UPND alliance in the 2015 by elections, he and HH are friends. For anyone to think that Mutati will not leave the govt to jump ship as we get closer to 2021 is either mad or has a very low IQ.

    What some of us have been saying from day one is now coming clearer for all to see.

    The Presidents advisors have completly destroyed ECL’s chances of re-election come 2021. While there is time be wise and rlease Mutati, Dora, Kampyongo and Kaizer!

  11. In the Nation paper of yesterday UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma bemoaned whats happening in Kenya as regretable. He emphasised the need for dialogue among politicians to avoid the unfortunate thing that happened in Kenya (Raila Odinga). Very surprising statement coming after hh voiced his support for Raila Odinga that his victory was stolen by Kenyatta.
    Then I sat back and asked myself, is that upnd speaking? Is Charles Kakoma about to cross over soon? Wouldnt be surprised, everybody except Ga.ry Nkom.bo must be disillusioned with h.h by now, leading them nowhere just telling kaponya like statements without any truth.
