Major Kachingwe at his residence
Major Kachingwe at his residence

Major Richard Kachingwe has resigned from the opposition UPND citing falsehoods by the party against his son as the reasons behind his decision.

Major Kachingwe, whose son Mpange Kachingwe was implicated by the opposition Alliance in the violence which characterised the Sesheke Parliamentary by election, said the accusations have tarnished his son’s image.

He said his son is not the one holding a pistol in the picture circulating on social media and part of the youths the Alliance claim are being trained as a militia by President Edgar Lungu and some of the people in both government and the PF.

Major Kachingwe, who claims to have been Hakainde Hichilemas advisor, lamented at a media briefing how his Counsel was ignored by both the UPND leadership and the Alliance over the picture circulating on social media despite being aware that it was not his son.

“Am not ready to endanger my family because of Politics and I have told HH that I chose my son over UPND, during the third term campaign by late President Fredrick Chiluba I lost my first born son because I opposed the move, not anymore I will not lose another son”, Major Kachingwe lamented.

He noted with dismay that HH and UPND are ready to destroy the lives of many innocent people just to usher him into office.

“This is not how politics should be, politics is about service and not endangering people’s lives. i dont know if my son who is an engineer by profession is employable by anyone after all this and this is unfair”, he said.

Major Kachingwe advised Zambians to be worry of politicians that are ready to go to any extent including sacrificing other people’s lives just to go to state house.

The opposition Alliance is in the process of reporting individuals to the International Criminal Court among them Major Richard Kachingwes son Mpange Kachingwe.

Below is the full press Briefing

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen of the Media, thank you for coming to attend this briefing. By now the entire country has heard or seen the irresponsible allegations being peddled by the UPND and its’ Alliance of Opposition Political Parties relating to an alleged assassination attempt. It is for this very reason that I called this briefing this afternoon.

Specifically, the UPND, through its’ Alliance of Opposition Political Parties, has made very strong allegations against my son, Mpange Kachingwe, claiming that he is a member of an imaginary armed militia grouping trained by the Republican President to assassinate opposition political party leaders, and that he is the same person seen in a now viral photo with a pistol in hand allegedly assaulting a UPND cadre.

First and foremost, I must make it clear HERE and NOW, that this is a terribly dangerous lie and Hakainde Hichilema knows all too well that his desperate and irresponsible allegations against my son are COMPLETELY FALSE.

As a parent and politician, I wish to give some perspective to why I have taken this route to hold this press conference over this matter. In the year 2000 to 2001 when the late former President Frederick Chiluba was championing a third term campaign, I came out strongly against it. At that time my third born son was admitted to hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer under government sponsorship. My political stance led to the then President ordering that my son’s treatment be terminated midway and by the time the differences in opinion were resolved it was too late and the cancer had progressed too far and we lost him. I AM NOT PREPARED TO LOSE ANOTHER SON BECAUSE OF POLITICS.

These are UPND cadres with pangas, catapults and all sorts of offensive weapons with a Prime TV cameraman right in their midst, but the reporting is extremely skewed.

Now coming to the issue at hand, two weeks ago I received a call from my son, Mpange, asking whether I had seen photos going round social media along claims that he was the person allegedly pictured with a pistol in what appeared to be some sort of a scuffle with a UPND cadre in Sesheke. After the phone call I went on to some of the UPND WhatsApp groups that I have been member of and saw what my son was referring to. Anyone could easily see with their two eyes that it was not even my son in the picture in question, as was the lie being peddled within and outside the UPND. After examining the photograph and being satisfied that it certainly was not my son, (see pictures), I posted publicly on multiple UPND platforms and personally called various leaders within the UPND to clear my son’s name. Majority saw reason and agreed with me as they were able to see it was not my son in the picture, HH knows it is not my son in the alleged picture, the party leadership knows it is not my son in the picture, Charles Milupi can equally see it is not my son in that picture but the UPND chose to ignore my counsel and went ahead to draft a speech bearing the dangerous and desperate malicious allegations tying my son to their entire wild ICC case, a speech which was handed to the UPND’s opposition alliance chairman Charles Milupi, who went ahead to spread the malicious accusations without digging for facts or consulting me.

After the Opposition Alliance’s Press Conference few days ago, I called the UPND Vice President to express my displeasure and he agreed with me that the alleged pictures were not of my son, his nephew, and he advised me to contact the Party President directly which I attempted to do to no avail as his phones went unanswered. I then called someone in the UPND media team who equally agreed that the picture in question was not of my son, Mpange, and he was being wrongly accused.

The young man connected me on a conference call with Clayson Hamasaka who was said to be responsible for drafting the malicious propaganda power point and pictures where my son’s head was circled and labelled as being the same person allegedly captured with a pistol in hand in a scuffle with a UPND cadre. To my surprise, immediately Hamasaka learnt that I was on the line he cut the call and immediately called HH to complain. This UPND media person and I agreed to meet in person and find a way of dealing with these malicious allegations.

To my surprise once again, immediately we met, HH phoned this very person to castigate him for outing Hamasaka and connecting him on to a conference call with me. This action to me exposed HH who went on screaming at this person for close to 30 minutes.

The media person advised HH to call me directly and iron it out, that is the only time HH finally saw it necessary to return my calls and I was very frank with him about the irresponsible lie he chose to run with.

My position in the UPND has been that of advisor to Hakainde Hichilema, but he could not even engage me to discuss the lie he was creating about my son. I told him directly that I would choose my son in a heartbeat over the UPND and the alliance. To my dismay, his next question to me was that would I choose my son over his life. What kind of man endangers his advisor’s son’s life in that manner and without even talking to me?

And surely if HH’s life was truly in danger, how was he able to constantly videotape himself in some bush?

HH went on to insist that his life was in danger for over eight hours in Sesheke. But my question to HH is why create such malicious and dangerous falsehoods against my son who he clearly knew was not the same person in that picture? And surely if HH’s life was truly in danger, how was he able to constantly videotape himself in some bush?

HH and I agreed that we needed to have a big meeting with other leaders of the party over this matter as it was very serious. But to date, he has not called me to have any such meeting. HH and the alliance’s allegations have tarnished my son’s image! Selfish careless politicians have put the life of my son in danger, they have tarnished his name and to be honest I am not sure whether he is even employable in any institution with such accusations of attempted assassination and being a member of an alleged armed militia organization set up to murder politicians.

These actions have made it clear to me that there is no end, there is no limit to how far HH and the UPND’s opposition alliance will go in destroying lives all for his selfish pursuit of the Presidency. To consciously manufacture such dangerous and irresponsible lies, and give them to his shadow alliance and broadcast them in broad daylight as they did, knowing too well the allegations were false is EXTREMELY SHAMEFUL.

THIS IS THE GREATEST LIE EVER PEDDLED BY LEADERS OF POLITICAL PARTIES IN HISTORY

And yet HH knows all too well that my son is a qualified Civil Engineer and not the imaginary armed militia thug he wishes to portray him as. All this because he knows my son is closer to certain leaders whom HH accuses of sponsoring such a fictitious armed militia grouping. Treading in such lies by leaders who are vying for higher office is very dangerous, what more if they were given the instruments of power, what greater lies would they tell and how many more lives would be endangered?

Mind you on the very UPND whatsapp blogs I watched as members of the party celebrated and congratulated one another over the Sesheke formula of violently torching other party’s camps whilst as a matter of strategy blaming only the other side for all acts of violence.

There are no words to describe HH’s growing levels of desperation! Why must so many lives be destroyed and tarnished just to get one man into State House? Zambians must be wary of politicians who have serious traits of peddling lies whilst disguising themselves as well-meaning victims. Zambia must reject desperate politicians who can peddle such dangerous lies. Politics must never be about hatred, lies, slander and malice. But about service to the people.

Now coming to you my colleagues in the media, as the fourth state you must all learn to tell the truth and be objective in reporting. Only a desperate and twisted psyche can contrive a plan to taunt and dare a Head of State’s security detail for the sake of manipulating public sympathy; and only warped minds of sycophants and stooges can support such irrational and irresponsible behaviour.

A Prime TV cameraman was in the midst of the UPND entourage in Sesheke throughout and could see all the offensive weapons carried by the UPND cadres even as they closed off the very road that the Presidential security detail was scheduled to drive through as they were proceeding from Mulobezi into Sesheke (see pictures from the very Prime TV cameraman’s video), who are these and what are they carrying? These are UPND cadres with pangas, catapults and all sorts of offensive weapons with a Prime TV cameraman right in their midst, but the reporting is extremely skewed. Some of you the pressmen who choose not to report truthfully can put this country on fire by working like cadres who only want to tell leaders what they want to hear and not as things happen.

I have no option but to conclude that the violence in Sesheke was an elaborately planned yet poorly executed television stunt by HH and a cast of poorly trained performers, intended to give the impression that he was being pursued and escaped an imaginary assassination attempt. Mind you on the very UPND whatsapp blogs I watched as members of the party celebrated and congratulated one another over the Sesheke formula of violently torching other party’s camps whilst as a matter of strategy blaming only the other side for all acts of violence. It is ridiculous for the press to be part of a scheme to perpetrate violence and portray the instigator as a victim with a stage-managed foray into the bush in order to manipulate local and international sympathy. Meanwhile an opposition alliance is hoodwinked into going to ICC, this is akin to beating somebody and running to police that I’ve been beaten.

For me now the UPND and its’ alliance have crossed the red line, HENCEFORTH I HAVE SEVERED MY RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM AS MY STAY IS NOLONGER TENABLE GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES. They have deliberately, over falsehoods, endangered the life of my son and his family including my own, they have tarnished his image with total disregard for common human decency! Whilst I will remain active in politics, going forward, I will adopt the principle that the enemy of my enemy is my friend! And anybody friendly to my enemy will nolonger be my friend. I shall endeavor to work with men and women of good will who mean well for common good of Zambia and Zambians.

Thank you very much.

    • We all know that the Delusionals blockaded the road that the president was using that day to cause violence. The Delusional Dictator HH was not scheduled to be in the area but he went ahead and defied the police just so he could run to the ICC.
      What’s funny is his sheeples are still waiting for a response from the ICC that the delusional dictator filed after losing the 2016 election. Now he has hoodwinked the Alliance of Delusionals to file another complaint to the ICC to make the delusional dictator HH seem credible.
      Fortunately the ICC is made up of top brass and the Delusionals will be waiting a long time for a reply.

    • Is this son under 18? Does this father know what sons do when daddy is not around? This is the reason this country is producing a lot of street adults because some parents want to babysit even creatures that are above 25, kachingwe should realize that his son choose to be on Bowman lusambo’s pf (the man who made you do frog jumps out the mmd Secretariat) ,is that how a son pays his father? So your son a qualified. engineer has been turned into a cadre due to lack of jobs?

    • If Kachingwe’s son was involved not even his father’s ranting will save him. Why is Major Kachingwe talking as if he sent his son. What was the son doing with those thugs in Sesheke? How did Kachingwe expect HH to shield his son just because the father is UPND? Kachingwe is too fast and that speaks volumes as to why he is defensive. A major behaving like that even a kid can understand the saying ” the guilty are always afraid” Why Kachingwe didn’t advise his son not to be in company with criminals from PF ?

    • Ba Major while we appreciate to stance over the issue of your son it is wrong to resign because it involves your son. You’re suppose to see the wrong and resign because it involves your country. Today you’re saying hh is evil because your son is not protected by your president, about the lives of so many people who have no one to speak for them? Politics are a service to the people not only your family. Today you’ve exposed the dangers of hh and upnd simply because your son is involved. We have said in the past that hh and his upnd are dangerous but you advisers have been refusing but today you’ve admitted because your son is involved. These are politician the country does not need, who only speak for themselves. As long as everything is good with their families and themselves then…

    • Major Kachingwe is a fake Major who doesn’t deserve the rank he was given as it was not given on merit but on being a shushushu in ZNS.

      HH is prone to excessive exaggeration and I’m sure even the international community are aware of this, just look at the way he was told off by the BBCs Steven Suker, let the ICC come they will expose this cry baby.

      Anyway they are both political clowns.

  2. Even surprised that it took him so long to defect from UPND. This man lacks credibility. Shocking that HH appointed this man as his advisor going by his documented lack of allegiance. This is the man who betrayed his former Boss RB. This man served as a diplomat under RB in Nigeria and Malawi. RB brought him back and asked him to contest the position of SG which he won, thanks to RB. When RB lost, Sata dangled some carrots and guess what happened? The man went on rampage to destabilise MMD that was headed by Nevers Mumba. Remember when he was clobbered by Bowman? This man even went further to stand in the dock as a state witness against RB who did so much for him. When RB because the defacto PF and Republican President after the demise of Sata, Kachingwe knew his days were numbered in PF…

  4. The UPND Media Team is a joke. HH needs to change whoever his image builders are because its not helping him. All his team do is to galvanize his base, that as of now has failed to get him elected and antagonize anyone seen to even differ with their leader’s take on any matter.

    Just for saying this I will be labelled a PF cadre, though I am quite non partisan and I do even criticize leaders in the PF when I deem them to have erred.

  5. (HH) is a violent, lying idi*ot. Shame on this Under 5 who thinks everybody is out to assassinate him. He’s losing people, credibility, elections and supporters. It’s a shame this person calls himself leader of the largest opposition. Clayson Hamasaka and (HH) what a bad seed for this country.

    • I know some brains are empty like for this kudos. Your son was in Sesheke during the violence. Simple – Yes or NO. After you answer, I will follow up with next question

      11

      12
    • LET ME SAY THIS FOR THE LAST TIME, There are three groups in UPND. The first one is the hard core tribalists ( Bantu botatwe) eg Mukuni, Sejani etc , the second group is the frustrated and failed politicians (tufilile munsenga) eg Mulongoti, GBM, Nalumango, Guy Scott, William Banda, etc and the third group is the confused and have no direction ( those who believe in magic, those who believe HH can fix it using). this is real, take it or leave it. If you really support HH you know which group you belong to

      39

  6. The details expoused by Major Kanchingwe make you believe his story. HH could have stage managed the violence in Sesheke. Definitely with a defector in the name of Major Kachingwe, lets have an inquiry on this and anybody found wanting, ie trying to set the country on fire by using falsehood need to be charged with treason, and no commonwealth should intervene this time. These are extremely serious allegations and people that cherish the peace we have had ought to take keen interest, the church, NGOs and all. This is very dangerous.

    This is no different from a US actor who hired thugs to attack him. I see Under 5 doing the same here

    • Same little brains like for kudos, but its democracy, let us see. If you are weak soldiers don’t let your children join politics, politics is a journey, there are twists and turns, are you going to manage having a press briefing at every twist of your sons political journey. Mulimbe

    • Chief bootie

      Do you that hh was amongst the thugs that blocked the road in sesheke and when police attempted to disperse them they ran in the bush with hh and it was from there where stories of assassination was concocted. Tearsgas shots sounded like live ammunition and it was shear luck that he survived. Kiki. Govt has enough proof to show icc and amnesty international to pin down hh with thats why they have willingly invited them. Under5 in trouble again.

  7. The problem in UPND is that their leader is considered infallible and divine. He can do no wrong and parents should even be prepared to sacrifice their children’s lives for the Chosen One.

    Any dissenting view is frowned upon. I will do exactly the same as the Major in his situation.

    • We have seen Zambian millionaires go burst because of politics. HH is heading that way. He is lucky Edgar is somewhat weak. If it was our Super Kenny or dribbler FTJ by now he would be walking Cairo Road in worn out shoes carrying a week old newspaper. The guy has spent a lot on the bus to take him to State House therefore he will do anything to recoup his losses.

      I agree with you , HH would not be that daft to practice his democratic rights in a fully fledged dictator ship , but PF and lungu claim Zambia is a democratic country and lungu was elected in free and fair elections , so we expect rights under a democratic and free country and we expect self confidence in some who claims to have been elected in free elections , not this Mugabe paranoia…

  8. Have you seen how politician defend there children? but why sacrifice other peoples children? I suggest in the next campaigns let Ms Tasila Lungu and Mr Hichilema`s children and that of Mr Kampyongo and all these politicians lead in hacking each other.If Mpange Kachingwe was not mentioned Mr Kachingwe would not have resigned instead he would have supported. Have you seen Zambian how greed these politicians are? And they are same Mr Hichilema, Mr Lungu, Mr Kambwili, ba GBM we saw how he defended his grandpa ba Sosala.

  12. Mr Richard Kachingwe could have a point. However, policemen and women face this dilemma everyday. One of the conditions of being a cop is that if it came to it, the policeman can arrest the father if the father committed a crime. If in his own right Kachingwe thinks HH can sacrifice his own life just because it is Kanchingwe’s son killing him, he is mistaken. For UPND I’m sure they will find this as good riddance. Kachingwe has never been his own man. The fact that his son was a PF cadre means that Kachingwe himself was going anytime anyway – tomorrow he will announce his re-joining PF I hear. No wonder Bowman Lusambo kicked his proverbial a**** at one time. You cannot be a leader if you are unreliable, untrustworthy and weak. HH is also to blame for being childish enough to appoint…

  18. And i quote: “In the year 2000 to 2001 when the late former President Frederick Chiluba was championing a third term campaign, I came out strongly against it. At that time my third born son was admitted to hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer under government sponsorship. My political stance led to the then President ordering that my son’s treatment be terminated midway and by the time the differences in opinion were resolved it was too late and the cancer had progressed too far and we lost him. I AM NOT PREPARED TO LOSE ANOTHER SON BECAUSE OF POLITICS”. This alone gets to show you the type of leaders we put in power. Political differences can lead to the whole entire President cut aid or support for you as if your aint a Zambian citizen.

  20. Surprisingly, this “Judas Iscariot” is not denying that his son was in sesheke at the time of the by-election. What was your qualified civil engineer doing in sesheke during that period? Kikikikiki…! Bwana rolling stone, just eat your stinking vomit and go back to Pf.

  21. sad indeed.This ICC aspect is just a small bit.Basically all the human rights abuses(crimes against humanity) taking place now will be reported to the ICC.we all know all the murders,retirements in national interest,etc form a body of evidence for the ICC to review.As a Zambian i think our country has accomodated foreign criminal elements who have no use for peace and are busy conducting ethnic cleansing.This is a modern world and there is a lot of evidence

  22. Kachingwe you don’t come from Sesheke. What was your son doing there? How come your son is in PF and yet you are advisor of the main opponent? Is it a case of fishing from two ponds? Such characters are dangerous.

    • Is it a must that both son and father should belong to the same party? Why was that raised when Kachingwe Sr joined UPND?

    • 28.1 Logic eludes some people. These are people who force their children to marry from only their tribe. Rupiah is MMD but his son Andrew is or was Upnd.

    • oh my God! come and see the typical upnd mentality from judge chikopo. pure dundumwezi. just because all your tribesmen belong to HH doesn’t mean all the tribes behave the same way. some of us use our own brains we don’t depend on the cow or bread winner and thats the reason your women accept polygamy.

  24. Mazoka founded the Upnd on principles unfortunately he died and his successor decided to complete the house using clay instead of concrete. He’s not genuine and neither are people like Milupi. Kachingwe we formed FDD together so when and why did join people whose only vehicle to power is to destroy the country?

    • Mazoka was a hardcore tribalist, ask those that worked with him at Zambia Railways where he employed uneducated Tongas and gave houses for bosses in town

  25. Let your son sue UPND and other individuals if he is not the gun wielding PF caders…….especially as you say he might be unemployable after being exposed….

    That would be the way to go , no , or are you afraid of the truth ???

    • When hh was being dragged to court over the fake treason charges and GBM was in SA , you were dancing and proclaiming how GBM has ditched UPND ????

      You are out of touch with reality for sure …..even being on the ground in Zambia , you still get things wrong ….

    • Oh my Spaka talking just for the sake of talking. …but without substance. Just accept that it’s a possibility that GBM or any other person can leave the Upnd.

  26. Major Kachingwe is 100% right but it is a pity that he has only realised now how evil HH is!!!
    HH’S DESPERATION FOR STATE HOUSE HAS REACHED A VERY DANGEROUS LEVEL AND GOVNT HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT OR ELSE THIS TRIBAL CREATURE MAY SET ZAMBIA ON FIRE BY 2021!!!
    To me even democracy is no making sense.Am sure many Zambians out there may prefare a ONE PARTY STATE to this current nonsense of democracy full of VIOLENCE!!Clyton Hamasaka,Larry Mweetwa,Sejani and several tongas if not caged will cause civil war in Zambia.I HATE HH’S UPND WITH A PASSION AND HOW I WISH MAJORITY ZAMBIANS IN 6.5 PROVINCES COULD CONTINUE REJECTING HH VIA THE BALLOT!!!Kainde should not be allowed to get anyway near state house!!IF RIGGING DO EXIT,THEN PLEASE DO IT IN 2021 FOR THE SAME OF ZAMBIA!!!

    • I don’t know why these chaps always think HH is desperate. The man is just a leader of an opposition party pushing the agenda he is asked to. Why do PF cheps always panick. No wonder you are making a lot of mistakes through panicking

  27. Those saying they be live kachungwe should ask them selves why the son will not sue who ever is implicating him ???

    The person’s responsible in UPND are well known to kachungwe, why not sue ???

  28. violence should not be condoned from whichever angle it comes from. Both PF & UPND are not sincere when it comes to violence within there rank & file. As for major Kachingwe, i don’t see the logic in him coming out so strong to defend son who happened to be on the other camp. How did his son find himself in the pic?

  29. As Zambians, we will be unfair to ourselves to cheat ourselves to say there is no political violence. The sooner we accept and root out these elements, the better. This brings me to the issue of firing police officers who are simply trying to put things in order. This one hell of action that will promote more violence

    • UPND introduced serious and fatal political violence in Zambia, before that we used to experience pockets of violence where usually only slaps and sometimes fists were involved until they introduced Mapatizya, Mufumbwe massacres during MMD era Livingstone ,Chongwe, Namwala and Sesheke massacres. To them seeing blood isn’t a big deal because they see cow blood every day and i feel pity for whitney nalumango, GVM, muceleka can’t even kill a fly. it’s too late though for kachingwe

  32. “There are no words to describe HH’s growing levels of desperation! Why must so many lives be destroyed and tarnished just to get one man into State House?” asked Kachingwe. We have warned and reminded Zambians to be very careful with HH, his desperation to get to State House at all costs must cause a lot concern. The man is extremely dangerous and already he has moulded himself as a dictator in the opposition UPND, what can make him different if he where to be holding state powers? Look, the man speaking, Mr. Kachingwe was his advisor until yesterday meaning all along he and many others know for sure that HH isnt the right chap in any way describable to be trusted with State powers. Its time people paused and reflected deeply about this man, he is more than dangerous. If in doubt, read…

Its time people paused and reflected deeply about this man, he is more than dangerous. If in doubt, read the article from Mr. Kachingwe who was very close to him again and make your own judgement. HH doesnt mean well to anyone, tribesmen or otherwise.

    • Is this the same kachungwe who turned on RB ?? The same kachungwe who has been flip flopping between all parties , no it can’t be , if it is he must be the same one beaten up by lusambo one time…..

  34. Amos chanda told us the other day that Zambians should know their words and actions have consequences, and they must take responsibility for them , and he was sueing who ever said he lead this same militia ,

    Why is kachungwe also not sueing ??

    I however see a strong resemblance between that thug with a pistol and this same major …….Let them however sue UPND …..

  36. Analysis: He was an adviser to the Party Head: Their cadres observed by Prime TV crew had pangas, did you advice? Your son was for another party different from yours and according to these statements you are in good books and so your household is politically divided which according to you are enemies; because with you anything against your son is an enemy and not anything against your commander! Good love but uncoordinated. This adviser is very liberal such that one would expect him to let the court determine and theb comment later like- “I knew he wasn’t the one and I told my colleagues. How will your Head win? The photo is not for your son” Imagine, how interesting would that comment be!! The same way your words have reached the media avail your son’s photo side by side with…

  37. ……. The same way your words have reached the media avail your son’s photo side by side with other photo simple. Let people judge. I tell, your is not that popular to be known by everyone as you know him so publish and compare. The Head of state can’t train militia – it is true but your party said this in 2013, why didn’t you resign then? You are an example families should be United in purpose – sensitivity of politics is not as those of football – That is why some us we don’t engage in active politics just to suppress the politics in us. My worry is you still seem to want to be in politics – and you will only succeed in making worst enemies i.e. enemies from DFD, DMM (Boma men & et’el), and now UDPN

  38. No wonder some call politics a dirty game when in the actual sense its the the players who are dirty. This scenario is tantamount to wrestling with a pig which is happy in the mad while you are not. Why choose Kachingwe’s son of all people while you are busy dinning over wine with the father? Someone somewhere is not happy that Kachingwe is close to HH and is careless to the extent of putting his son’s head on the guillotine. His media team and the alliance TV station don’t mean well for this country.

  39. HH is a sadist that’s why he will die a painful death because he’s hoodwinked his supporters who are into group think mentality and they have since reached a point of no return.

  42. These Politicians should be sending their own children to do these silly acts of violence. Whose children does Kachingwe expect to be causing violet acts. Next HH and Lungu’s children should be seen hacking each other with pangas. Youth let us stay away from these politicians and let their own children fight.

  43. How I wish Bowman Lusambo and his former die hard colleagues can do justice again to this former ZNS Officer. How can an elderly person leave a political party giving those flimsy reasons? Even if one is your beloved son, at some point you go. Let your son do his own things and you can only give counsel as a parent. Nomba ati he has left because his son was not fairly treated. Zambian politician, give us space.
