HH and President Lungu meet at late Munkombwe’s burial in Choma
HH and President Lungu meet at late Munkombwe’s burial in Choma

The long awaited dialogue process between President Edgar Lungu and opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema seems to have started off after the two rivals met last Monday.

The sudden development was only revealed today by the three Church mother bodies who are leading the dialogue process.

In a communique, the three Church mother bodies did not disclose where the meeting was held from but only confirmed that they facilitated the meeting.

The three Church mother bodies also revealed that the two leaders addressed each other as brothers with great respect for each other.

They said President Lungu and Mr Hichilema expresses unconditional support to an inclusive and Church led national dialogue and reconciliation process and assured the Church of their availability and commitment to future direct engagements.

Th Church has since assured the nation that it is full of Hone for a quicker and successful national dialogue process.

“We remain committed to carry out the mandate entrusted to us by the Zambian people, and with the help of all well meaning Zambians and the mighty hand of God, we will work towards realizing the vision of the national dialogue namely the “desire for a conversion of hearts and minds, learning to a united, reconciled and peaceful Zambia where all citizens freely participate in governance with a thriving social and economic environment.”

  1. it’s power handover process. Lungu needs to negotiate that his immunity doesn’t get removed. He’s too weak. I can’t see him surviving 2 weeks in jail.

    • One HH couldn’t fathom the idea of going back to Chimbokaila. Nothing to do but bow down!

    • I’m sure HH had the Ndola police summons in mind hence the speedy cooperation. Once beaten twice shy. All the same you two guys, meet at the table and iron out the creases. One of the creases is that HH should respect the Presidency, because he may one day be one when ECL has finished his two terms ending in 2026.

  2. Ka Lungu ni ka kelenka. Meeting HH a day before he is due to be questioned by police and possibly arrested. Who will he be reconciling with once HH gets locked up?

  4. The one IGNITES FIRE between HH & ECL are WHITE SUPREMACY, the imperialists.HH is a tool used by the ba zungus who want to TAKE FULL CONTROL of mineral resources of Zambia.Proffesor Gambali failed to convoy peace talks amongst political players because of the same FOREIGN INFLUENCE. Reports still trail that SPONSORED church /NGOs organizations have been given money in order to facilitate political dialogue. Thank God that results are KNOWN.

  5. Dialogue process should involve all parties and it should not be only about two politicians with their big ego. Zambia is far bigger than these two.We need dialogue about Zambia’s best interests.

  6. Since trib.al Hacks did not address The President as nsenga rat, I give consent for the dialogue to proceed.

    • He is not interested in dialogue but YOUR position! Be very careful, don’t show the little boy your bedroom Mr. President.

  7. What is the purpose of hiding the details of the meeting? Give the people the information so that cadres and political thugs can know that their leaders are at peace and no physical fighting or insults. The 3 masketeers should tell the nation where the two chaps met and what they discussed. We are tired of speculating.

    • The most cardinal point is that they met and it’s not in our remit to wanting to know where they met and what they might have eaten now how they where dressed and who said what. In time, they will inform the nation.

  8. Interesting. But why did they keep it a secret until now?One of the key outcomes of the so called dialogue process I would like to see is the opposition being allowed to hold meetings, rallies and demonstrations anytime they want as long as they do not break any law.

  9. Edgar should be careful with someone who is a good friend of chief Mukuni. Mukuni sometimes sleeps at the cemetery.

  12. Yesterday I told the Chinese to force lungu to form a GRZ of national unity or the Chinese will get evicted from Zambia….
    Only total unity will move Zambia forward.

  13. One Lulu rat man from chawama to state house, from chibuku to Jamerson and from k2m to k22m in three years.Indeed this can only happen in a country like Zambia where people are dull and not educated, pipo who cannot think before choosing their own leaders, anyway Its now time for God to help us move forward from poverty to a good life, from Jobles to job. Only those with common sense will agree with me that Lungu has failed to run the affairs of the country and he is incompetent.

  14. When late president Fredrick Titus Jacob Mukupo Chiluba “Congole'”could not find anyone credible to lead MMD after his failed third term bid, he settled for late president Levy Patrick Mwanawasa S.C.
    Chiluba had conditions to meet for his liberty but lost his immunity. We await what fate will meet Edgar Chagwa Lungu when his time comes. Hope his PF cadres will come to give support when chickens will come to roost.
