United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has urged his members to defend themselves when attached.

Speaking when he addressed thousands of supporters at the party’s secretariat, the UNPD leader said that this was not the time for cry babies and even babies grow, adding that he was tired of seeing people at his gate crying that they have been beaten.

“You must defend yourselves, full stop,” said the UPND leader. Speaking in local Language, Mr Hichilema emphasised that he did want to hear that his people have been beaten and asked as if they don’t have hands and brains.

“If attacjed by a PF cadre, defend yourself to the best of your ability and even attack 10 times more,” Mr Hichilema said and emphasized that he has given them the signal and they shouldn’t be waiting for one.

Mr Hichilema thanked the youths for the work in Chilanga and said that it was time to protect both the voters and the votes as responsible citizens to help the police to maintain law and order.

Mr Hichilema said that the party was confident that they will win the by-elections and Lusaka is top on their list as their candidate, Kangwa Chileshe was ready to deliver service to the people of Lusaka.

Below is the full video of Mr Hichilema’s address

  1. Typical under 5 politics, the reason your Dad beat you after your mum had beaten you was not to teach you how to revenge and defend yourself. You Dad was basically teaching you that breaking the law set by your mum as as good as breaking the law set by your Dad. Anyway you are under 5 and something of these things you put on videos will one day come back to haunt you.

    You are simply not leadership material. too emotional. Or should I say emotionally illiterate, hence under 5 tag

    • Proof that HH is desperate and now resorting to promoting Anarchy.

      As an opposition you should be working hard to put pressure on the (i) Home Office Minister, (ii) Inspector General, (iii) PF Party to find solution and UPND followers to find a solution.

      You are enticing these poor UPND Cadres to go and die for you. Remember non of your own children are among the followers whom you want to exercise anarchy. Soon or later, one or two will die, and the loss will not be yours. But for the families of the dead.

      You are a COLD CALCULATED FAILED POLITICIAN – who talks peace with one hand. While using the other hand to create anarchy in the nation. Hoping, then you can go into States House.

      You have nothing to inspire your party. Yet, more the nation at large. This is a sad day for…

      This is a sad day for Zambia.

      HH – Don’t take Zambians as fools. You know very well, you are losing support inside UPND. For this, you now have resorted to becoming HOT AIR – also known as EMPTY ALARMING BOASTIFUL PREACHING.

      Last week, it was Lungu wants to kill you. Today you are a WAR LORD asking your followers to create HAVOC and ANARCHY. SHAME ON YOU. !!!!!

    • I think Politics is not for HH…this guy is just forcing himself and the only reason he still has a platform is because of his money otherwise he should have been forgotten a long time ago…I believe his finances have dwindled so now he is trying very hard so that he can recover his money via stealing from govt and other unscrupulous deals of which he is known for once he is elected into office. So please don’t listen to him he has nothing to offer apart from telling his supporters to fight and hinder development

  2. THE MISTAKE HERE IS THAT HH MIGHT BE COMMUNICATING SELF DEFENCE TO HIS CADRES – HOWEVER, HIS ILLITERATE CADRES WILL INTERPRET THIS AS A DIRECTIVE ISSUED BY THEIR SUPREME LEADER AYATOLLA HH “TO BEAT ALL THEIR OPPONENTS ALONG THE WAYS.
    THIS IS BLEEDING VIOLENCE FROM THE HIGHEST PARTY ECHELONS.

    • When he says he has given a signal, he actually meant to use violence against violence!! Self defence is inbuilt in every human being!! But what HH meant was to use violence against violence. Ichakukonko lubilo, naiwe chikonkwo lubilo!!

  5. The role of opposition is like brakes in a car. It ensures that government is not going over the top. As the breaks would have, opposition works with a critical eye to ensure all gaps are plugged. However what happens when breakers themselves have fault? Then they would oppose any move and doesn’t let country move forward. This is perhaps what we are seeing now. The opposition is losing strength because of its own omissions and commissions. The continuous stalling of Parliament by the UPND on flimsy grounds have made the smart Zambians lose trust in them.

How can a leader preach about violence instead of peace this shows that no matter the dialoge the man is full of hatred Zambia does not need a leader like him who promote fighting he better stepdown if he has nothing to offer UPND has a lot of young leaders who can bring hamony and development to the country if he is tired let go back to his farm and leave us in peace

  13. HH has tried the Commonwealth, Trump, the Hague, Obasanjo, his Freemasons friends, etc to get to state house, but has failed. He has tried painting Zambia black whenever he is outside the country, but zero. Now he is inciting is cadres to be violent and knowing his cadres they will do want hh wants. They will not stop to think and check if hh’s children are in their midst when they start their violent acts. To them hh is god.

  14. HH has completely run out of political ideas!!!He has nothing to offer now.Surely which normal leader encourages his cadres to engage into violence?Did you ever heard Great Michael Sata telling his supporters to do violence?NEVER!!!HH should know that his UPND has no numbers in urban areas such as Lusaka or Copperbelt.Since 2006 PF cadres have dominated urban areas.PF has huge cadres in hundreds here who can easily crash slim tonga cadres in UPND.Did HH see the huge PF cadres who were driving around Lusaka yesterday with Miles Sampa?Can his few slim or hunger stricken tonga cadres fight with well fed PF cadres?INDEED HH WILL NEVER RULE ZAMBIA AS HE CANT WIN VIA VIOLENCE!!

    • Njimbu those were rascals. Cadre for hire. in hired minibuses. I was there at the junction of Church & Suez Roads. All traffic police Officers had to run away and failed to control traffic. it was chaotic to say the least.
      took pictures of them. That’s not the behaviour to be proud of.

    • See what PF supporters pride themselves in? They idolize brutality. See the hooliganism around Sampa’s entourage right now? Why do you see nothing wrong with that but see everything wrong when HH says his supporters must stand up and fight for their rights when attacked???

  19. Njimbu is very very tribal. Why insult innocent Tongas? Just because HH is Tonga does not mean all his suppoters are Tonga. Some Tongas even support Lungu. Now once again most bloggers have missed the point HH put forward. If Iam attacked, I will defend myself as opposed to running to the PF police who will not do anything.

    • If HH and UPND are better than PF then they should not behave like them. It was UPND supporter who drove people from their homes in Namwala in 2016. HH should condemn violence whoever is involved. He still wants to see the country in flames so that the international community would call for a government of national unity to which he would be part of because he knows he is not popular enough to win power through elections.

  20. Now I know what Kakoma meant by what he said about that handshake. A mature would have simply advised his followers against provoking situations that may lead to violence. And why mention only PF, suppose it’s Unip that attacks their cadres what will they do? Shamefully useless.

    • Inferiority is the reason. Why should it bother me if I’m tribe X and someone calls me by that tribe. Nobody chooses in what tribe to be born in. By reacting you’re actually accusing God of committing a crime for sending you in a particular tribe. If you’re a Tonga, you’re a Tonga just live with it without despising other tribes.

    • I am Tonga and that does not bother me at all. The issue at hand is not what tribe one is. It is about when some individuals (like Njimbu) decide to issue blanket condemnation of everybody who belongs to a certain tribe. I am a scientist and maybe that is why I don’t understand the way some of you quickly jump to conclusions about characteristics of such a large group of people. Why should someone who doesn’t even know me decide to call me names because of my tribe? This is naked provocation. These are things our Minister of information should be concerned about. ICT should not be used as a channel for hate mongering.

  23. I see why zambians fail to understand HH is simply saying PF is violent and every time upnd is attacked an report to police there is no help so its just logical why shud pf keep on attacking upnd and nothing seems to be done when a thief comes to your home at night defend yourself or he will kill you so for me its ok let not PF attack in the first place

  24. Violence should not be condoned.It is retrogressive and primitive way of solving issues.Politicians need to be violent against poverty,corruption and ignorance.Last week,I was praising HH for the gesture of building a community school for the vulnerable but viable children.That is a spirit the nation needs not killing and maiming each other.The spirit of mayhem,if not contained,will create greater catastrophe for the nation.Leaders need to inculcate spirit of oneness and coexistence in the nation.The nation is suffering from a lot of diseases,like ignorance,backwardness,poverty and corruption.We need leadership that will raise its barometer of debate above pettiness and puerile talk.We need leaders that have empathy for the majority who are suffering.

  28. UPND supporters are the dullest ever. Even UNIP supporters had a backbone of intelligence. This man HH needs to be replaced, for UPND to be a viable contender. Every year they will keep on losing. They have already lost the Mayor-ship. If you can lose in Chilanga, your stronghold, Lusaka is a very intelligent city, voters do not tolerate Tribal clowns and wife beaters.

  30. PF cadres are the dullest creatures to have roamed the earth. That is why from the time of their existence, they have been the main perpetrators of violence – because they can’t articulate. Trying to win every argument or force people into submission, through violence. Even here they cannot understand that HH is saying enough is enough, any creature has the right of self defense. The state machinery has predicatively failed to protect innocent people at the hands of PF thugs. You want people to continue giving ‘their other cheek’ when they are slapped? Now you want to behave holier than thou when you have been the purveyors of violence. PF thugs have ridden rough shod over the opposition for too long. There are many a people in the world today who would not have tested freedom if they…

  31. A lot of people commenting here about HH’s self defense statement, have never been ‘heard’ to robustly condemn PF thuggery. They have not been known to condemn the divisive and often primitive rhetoric of their GREAT LEADER and his cohorts. Yet, they are eager and quick to pick on anything they deem negative from the opposition – notably because they are part of the decadent regime or benefit from spoils of it’s thievery. Don’t try and patronize those more enlightened than you, with your senseless biased purported ‘advice’.

  32. Frivolous and propestorus.
    A s.h.a.m.e.l.e.s.s leader’s desperate address to his unsuspecting blind followers. It’s politics having a near rhyme to policies and not pangs for pangs, hate for hate, insult for insult. The game is definitely a policies undertaking not about blood shed and vegence. I feel so disappointed by uyu mwanamulume. Aitaya you anarchist.

  33. The king of the Zulus said something terrible about foreigners and the next day xenophobic violence arose. That is what happens when a leader doesn’t know how to lead. Some of us know that the masses are usually blind and are looking for someone to see for them and then instruct them what to do. I hope we dont have stuupid masses in Zambia
