UPND President Hakainde Hichilema with US Ambasador to Zambia, Daniel Foote

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has assured Zambia’s cooperating partners that he will foster warm relations with other countries once elected Republican President.

Mr Hichilema said this when he joined fellow leaders in celebrating the US independence at the residence of the American Ambassador to Zambia Daniel Foote.

“We remain committed to working with other countries in fostering development,” Mr Hichilema said.

Mr Hichilema said human rights, freedoms and liberties are among other key issues that the UPND stands for in Zambia.

“Happy independence to the United States and thank you for your continued support to our country across all sectors. May God bless both our country and the United States of America,” Mr Hichilema said.

And Minister of Finance Margret Mwanakatwe has re-affirmed government’s commitment to nurturing and growing bilateral ties with the United States government.

Speaking when she officiated at the 242nd American Independence Day commemoration in Lusaka, Mrs. Mwanakatwe said that Zambia attached great importance to the promotion of relations with the United States.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe said that the relations between the two countries have promoted economic growth and development which has greatly improved the living standards of the ordinary people.

And Mrs Mwanakatwe said that Zambia will use its tenure as chair of the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) organ on politics, defence and security cooperation which it will assume in August this year to work towards achieving peace, stability and security in the region.

Mrs. Mwanakatwe said that President Edgar Lungu was committed to fostering peace and reconciliation and because Zambia fully appreciates the need for peace in order for development to take place.

And United States Ambassador to Zambia, Daniel Foote used the occasion to call on the Zambian government to put in the right measures and policies to protect the Zambian citizens.

Ambassador Foote noted that ultimately, it is effective governance and economic growth that will determine Zambia’s development trajectory and the long term impact of mutual investments in health, education and economic growth.

The event was attended by foreign diplomats accredited to Zambia, government officials, opposition political leaders and members of civil society among others.

    I hold a PhD

    Thanks

    • Deport the USless homo.,,,, dreaming is free and allowed, only Gov ministers represent Boma at official functions, not this cow called hh…akapusa maningi ni kumulonga na futi..

    • Tribal comments do not surprise me. KK and his UNIP sowed the seed in the late 1960s for what many thought were noble reasons. In fact there was a hidden agenda and it has produced what is ailining Zambia now. I confronted one former UNIP leader in my neighbourhood with the evidence. He was speechless.

    • Ecl: In fact it was Maggie Mwanakatwe who officiated at the function. She even shook hands with HH if that will please you. As usual LT were beaten to this story by other websites. Those Americans in fact facilitated Zambia’s independence and wanted the UK to hand over as long ago as 1950 soon after the UN had passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 which effectively outlawed colonialism. But UK and France told USA that “look we can’t just walk away because these aren’t really nations as a bloodbath is likely. We need to work out a decolonisation program”. That’s why the 1950s and 60s saw many African countries become independent. Many don’t know this history. I have been reading a bit.

    • Zambia already has very warm relations with its partners.

      This is the mistake HH makes all the time. And he never learns a lesson. He has often time after time painted Zambia as a hostile nation to its partners. He thinks by pleasing diplomats he will easily fast track into power.

      America does not just build an embassy complex in a country, unless it feels confident and safe about that nation. The USA have built their compound in Ibex Hill.

      On the other hand, HH fails to inspire and win hearts in places like the Northern, Copperbelt and Eastern parts of Zambia. These are the areas where votes come from.

      We don’t need an opposition party which is UNTI-DEVELOPMENT, but that which CO-EXIST with the government on GOOD NATIONAL PROGRAMS, but also PUT, the government to task by…

    • If ECL is all for national unity, he should appoint a commission of inquiry to look into recruitment patterns in ZNS and lately I hear the Prison Service (some call it Correction Service but it isn’t and will not attain that status).

    • After building their embassy in Ibex Hill, the Americans realised there was no sewerage service to connect to. Then they said we cannot live like Zambians. Let us give them aid to modernise sewerage, hence the Lusaka Water Sanitation Project.

    • Cont…

      scrutinising CHECKS and ACCOUNTABILITIES. HH wants Zambia to burn down, become a HOSTILE NATION and ROLLBACK. So that he can stand on the international platform and say:

      Aah… See my country, this is what I have been preaching about. This is the reason why he is preaching the GOSPEL of HATE. Accuse Lungu that he wants to KILL him. Command his followers to create ANARCHY.

      This is a mind set of a very DELUSIONAL and SELFISH person wanting to grip to power by all means necessary, even it means BURNING DOWN a nation.

      Not everything PF is doing is perfect. GOVERNANCE is at times MAKING EXPERIMENTS based on CIRCUMSTANCES. Some experiments WORK some FAIL and you LEARN LESSONS from them. And that’s JUST LIFE from a 360° DEGREES ANGLE.

      But HH is making PF look like…

    • Cont…

      HH is making PF look like SAINTS.

      He is now and has become driven by hate due to frustration from the people of Zambia who keep rejecting him. In his mind, he thinks he is the best candidate. But politics is not for him.

      Therefore, it’s time for him do do an INVENTORY about himself and the FUTURE of UPND. No one is bigger than his party. Though HH feels he is bigger than UPND.

    • HH should now be careful not to shoot himself in the foot. As opposition leader he has freely attended this event being officiated by the Minister of government. Such activities which bring together Foreign dignitaries, Government officials and Opposition leaders do not take place in countries under DICTATORSHIP e.g. Congo – Kabila and Moise Katumbi, Kenya – Kenyatta and Laila Odinga, South Sudan – Salva Kiir and Riek Machar etc., etc.
      Next time HH opens his mouth saying there are no Human Rights nor Freedom of Expression in Zambia IT WILL BE THE SAME AMERICAN AMBASSADOR TO CASTIGATE HIM THAT HE IS A LIER AND A CRY BABY.
      THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR WILL ASK HH THE FOLLOWING: “WHAT HUMAN RIGHTS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WHEN LUNGU LET YOU FREELY MINGLE WITH HIS MINISTERS AT OUR INDPENDENCE…

    • THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR WILL ASK HH THE FOLLOWING: “WHAT HUMAN RIGHTS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WHEN LUNGU LET YOU FREELY MINGLE WITH HIS MINISTERS AT OUR INDPENDENCE FUNCTION???” AND HE WILL ADD: “YOU ARE THE GUYS FORCING OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO USE TERMINOLOGIES LIKE SHI*T HOLE COUNTRIES”.

    • HH is very sick in the head no wonder the people of Zambia keep on rejecting him.Too pompous and very proud.HH thinks he is a small god to be worshipped. And why are these foreign diplomats giving him audience….Lack of respect for African leaders….but 2021 its PF again so i don’t know which country HH will be fostering diplomatic relations with

    • HH CAN’T EVEN MAINTAIN WARM RELATIONS WITH ALL HIS COUNTRYMEN, HOW CAN HE DO SO WITH FOREIGNERS…. HE IS JUST B*LL SH***ING AS USUAL

    • When its meeting westerners he will wear new shirt, neck tie and have a haircut….really laughable …those chaps especially the Yanks will turn their backs on you like they did to Patrice Lumumba

    • PF double-standards are sickening. Late Sata never attended national day celebrations at State House during LPM’s time. Late B.Y Mwila used to attend without fail. Yet it was Sata who was more popular than BYM. What has changed with respect to HH? Sata’s attitude to LPM only changed after his medical rescue to SA. This was Sata’s road to Damascus and it changed him more than any sermon in the Catholic Church. It dawned on Sata that the man who was target of so much hate and criticism did not in fact hate him. Imagine the reverse: Sata as president and LPM as ordinary citizen at point of death. Would Sata have responded as LPM did to Sata?

    • HH should dive into the nearest fast running river and float or drown away like the Germans at the World Cup final. He might even want to emulate the Senegalese, amasenesene who worked hard but produced no fruits.

  2. HH can’t be president. From the time his UPND cow party talked about going for a general assembly, HH has been doing strange things. I still stand with those calling for UPND general assembly.

    If HH remain the UPND president, PF would continue to rule Zambia. The opposite is also true.

  3. It’s a good thing this fuxcki!ng House negro Kaponya (HH) will never enter Plot 1.
    What warm relations can you foster with other countries when you were calling for Genocide and Armageddon in Zambia barely 2 days ago you fuxcki!ng Hootoo.
    @1 Mushotany oko go suck your d!ick

  4. When a normal and reasonable person, who is fair with clear thinking defends HH, he is called names or tagged as an UPND cadre.
    And yet its these sons of S.atana above, who know nothing other than spitting po.ison on others, it becomes unbearable. Why should HH `s ambition irritate your stinking.as.shole? In fact, there is nothing to criticize him, let’s be fair. He thanked foreign countries for supporting Zambia….that is okay. His speech was okay and similar to Mwanakatwe. What is wrong with you evil people who never think of anything positive….Jesus !! The poison you spit here is the reflection of what you are, I pit your families.

    • Your tirades are uncalled for please. Tell us of a person who is not criticized. ..
      even dead people sometimes get criticized.

  5. But we already have warm relations with most countries so how warm does dingbat HH want it to be. Be careful of what you wish for.

  6. So, Hon Mwanakatwe was there representing government and you guys have a headline on HH? Ba LT you dhould be serious. Anyway GG is just a political disaster that ever happened to the once might upnd under Anderson Kambela Mazoka that most of us supported.

  7. So no UPND convention then which might bring in new leadership for UPND to give them some hope of actually winning in 2021?

  8. HYPOCRISY AT IT’S WORST. HH BOYCOTTS INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS IN ZAMBIA. AND YET GOES TO CEREBRATE US INDEPENDENCE. THIS IS VERY SAD. THEY SAY CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. IN BEMBA WE SAY “AKACHILA KA MBUSHI, KASENGULA APOKEKELE”
    DOES HH REALLY CARE ABOUT THE INDEPENDENCE DAY OF ZAMBIA?
    OR HE ONLY CARES ABOUT INDEPENDENCE DAY OF THE USA?
    MUZUNGU ANIKONDE.

  9. The only thing on HH mind is State House and nothing else. He doesnt mean anything to Zambians and therefore we will continue taking him to the dustbin. National Days like the one of the US is not a political platform but a social one.

  10. “UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has assured Zambia’s cooperating partners that he will foster warm relations with other countries once elected Republican President”.

    He started by hating and insulting Janet Rogan, UN Resident Representative to Zambia, without reasonable cause. The UN has since corrected his erroneous impressions but he has not offered an apology. What a way to foster warm relations with other countries!!

  11. Zambians including HH need to wake up to the fact that foreign interference, especially by the CIA, is rife in Africa. This interference is designed to ensure we don’t progress. The more we fight, the easier it is to take your natural resources at free will. HH should consider the damage he is doing to Zambia by allowing himself to be manipulated by these foreign forces.

  12. Tell h.h that western culture demands respect and civilised behaviour. An apology is a critical ingredient of their culture and expectations, and on this h.h has failed miserably and should not be deceived by those embraces and smiles from the western diplomats. They most likely see him as a well dressed tribal villager without basic manners rather than a future statesman in Zambia.
    And look at the plastic smile of h.h, who can get deceived by that?

    And look at the destruction he has brought on Zambia, all the efforts of the donor countries financially and time and human resources h.h has diminished their impact due to his behaviour, bitterness, and failure to accept that he has lost elections.
    National politics is not for ba bwana h.h, maybe on the village advisory council in…

  13. So he still thinks he will rule zambia

    Honestly how. Tell me how.

    2021 he is losing

    He is a political reject even his own big guys within his party know it. Thats why they want change

  14. Did HH address the diplomats for him to be accorded more prominence than the Minister? Why would an Independence Anniversary of another nation be turned into a campaign forum?

    Am I missing something or something is seriously wrong and biased with this report?

  15. these are the moment which mislead chintombwa into thinking he will one day be elected…please stop inviting him as this fuels building of castles in the air lol

  16. Picture No.5 seems to be an inquisitive look into HH’s eyes, questioning him whether he was invited to the function and HH seems to plead his innocence. UPND functionaries are known for gate crushing in foreign embassy functions to solicit support. In picture No.7, the two seem to say welcome nevertheless.

  17. Surely, a person whose upstairs is upside down will always dream of plot 1 like HH. Southern MPs will never be Ministers as long as they maintain tribalist at their helm. The kid is selfish, jealous, pompous, greedy, name it. People are leaving upnd coz of this guy & GBM. Find someone else, we will vote u in.

  18. With these kind of tribal comments and the rate at which we are going one day we will wake up and find Zambia geographically divided

  19. Yaba…this HH guy is going crazy….why does he feel pressure to impress ba zungu…..he is really messed up

    Attending Independence day for the US and shunning your own country’s Independence day…just WTF is that?
    Can the politically impotent UPND cadres on this sorry site explain this madness to us?

  20. Does Chainama still treat symptoms of HaLLucinations, HaIllusions & HaDelusions? Here is the candidate! Prof. HaWorthy please! Sorry, he is late.

  21. Sometimes we just need to keep quiet and leave speaking to those in authority. HH just voises un organized thoughts just to be heard and noticed and in the end, he looks like he has no vision. Cipante pante kind of. I think this man is not a politician. He is just loosing his integrity for nothing.

    • Chisenga: How many times did Sata attend national day celebrations when he was in opposition? Perish the thought mate. Aren’t you ashamed of your naked double-standards? HH will not be a sitting duck of those seeking to kill him.

  22. HH is a fantastic of Horoscopes and his birth star has told him he was born to be president. Problem is he doesn’t know that the star is referring to the presidency of his company.
