UPND MP and HH's Presidential Advisor Douglas Syakalima
UPND MP and HH’s Presidential Advisor Douglas Syakalima

The opposition UPND says its leader Hakainde Hichilema will not apologize for accusing President Edgar Lungu of wanting to assassinate him.

UPND presidential advisor, Douglas Syakalima says Mr. Hichilema however; has no problem sitting on the same dialogue table with President Lungu despite his assassination fears.

Mr. Syakalima says Mr. Hichilema has already demonstrated this by his recent meeting with President Lungu notwithstanding the anguish he went through when he was charged with treason.

In an interview with QTV News, Mr. Syakalima states that the UPND and Mr. Hichilema consider National Dialogue as a moral issue which President Lungu should take seriously.

He says his party does not also agree with the suggestion that National Dialogue will fail if President Lungu is reported to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Mr Syakalima states that the intention by the Opposition Alliance to have President Lungu indicted by the ICC is an isolated case which is not related to the National Dialogue.

    • This is nonsense. HH you are the one who can not sleep over Lungu. The president is busy running the nation.

      I guess, it bothers you when he ignores you. For you this is about seeking reaction from Lungu so that you can make and gain Political Mileage. This method has not worked for you. Best you set your eyes on the voters and not painting Lungu to be a killer

      You still have not figure it out what it means to bean opposition leader.

    • Ba haluza is drunk with self importance that he has been bestowed by his tribesmen. He must wake up. For as long as this thinking continues he will languish in opposition ififine for a long time. PF will give power to a northerner after Lungu ninshi ni game on. After that it will come back east. That will be another 30 years gone, add that to the 20 he has been losing losing!

    • But come to think of it,, if you were accused of doing wrong and you strongly thought that you were innocent,, would you be bothered by the false allegations? Personally I would even be looking forward to stand in court so that I can exonerate my self, and clear my name,,

  3. Dialogue is dead!! President Lungu has made it clear that he will not sit at any table with criminals. He has since directed the justice minister to push the necessary Constitutional Amendments. Still in the past syakaloma???

    • Yeah thats the way to go if we want to move forward. Let the president not waste time with immature brains. Their more than 18 millions to take care of instead of wasting energy on some few uselss individuals.

    • And yet their you are safe and hinding on socia media – if zambia had no president where do you think you would be by now, probably a refugee in same bush. Learn to be grateful. He has stolen we all agree, but table the evidence. In sesheke, the truth came out that UPND were responsible for the violence…and it was shown that even a prime tv reporter and a camera man was in the UPND vehicle but no one is saying anything. Yet we are blaming PF – So we want PF to just keep quiet. If Lungu is a moron then you too is a moron – Like president like its citizens….

  8. Syakalima are you talking from your ass,President Lungu is a statesman whereas HH is a cadre so what are you talking about

    • Yes Eta. But with how UPND behaves, i do not think any one is president in zambia or anywhere else in the world would want to reason with HH- Considering is kind of politics of always changing stances notwithstanding issues of trust and twisting stories about others. If i was the president , i would rather use my energy discussing developmental issues with the local people, chiefs and headmen. I also would meet more of ward councillors and marketeers and the cuurent crop of opposition parties.

  9. So the opposition alliance has not yet reported Lungu to ICC. I am waiting to see how far they go because because International organizations have better things to do than listen to cry baby. Can someone educated me on what is there to dialogue about. HH lost and Lungu is the president of Zambia. UPND failed to present there case within the stipulated 14 days and life continues until 2021 when we will have elections.

  10. People’s reaction towards you comes from your own conduct towards society.There seems not to be any regard by the general citizenry to respect constitutional office holders and opposition political holders because both camps haven’t carried themselves in an exemplary manner. The general condition of a country reflects the leadership qualities of those holding influential positions. Ralph Waldo Emmerson (1803-1882) said an institution is a lengthened shadow of one man.

  11. Always talking nothings. Even if you don’t apologize the man you are insulting is already president while your tin god is not and probably will never be.

  12. The problem with UPND followers and sympathisers alike is that to them Zambia has no president. Note that as an individual, you have an obligation to respect the worldly authorities. I can foresee your bitterness continuing after 2021 cause so far , there are no indications of the wind of change. Accept what you can’t change and move on.

  13. Surely if PF or Lungu had the intention to kill HH they had all the chances in the world when he was locked up, why should they do it now ?? . The problem with tu UPND u enyoy lies and fabricating stories and seeking useless attention from the world . I will be shocked if ICC will even entertain your story. In shesheke, who caused havoc and beat up people, is it not UPND cadres

  15. It is expected that HH cannot and will not apologize to ECL for Assassination lies because that is his(HH)livelihood to peddle in lies. So he cannot apologise because that is tantamount to cutting off part of himself.

  16. Siakalima naimwe, who doesn’t know that the small god of the tonga people never and will never apologize in his entire life on earth, how will the devil feel when he apologizes. You and me know that the devil in hell will disown him. He has been sent to inflict pain, draw blood and cause anguish and not to mend fences, peace and joy. LIGHT AND DARKNESS WILL NEVER MIX BADALA

  17. People of Zambia Please in 2021 DON’T vote for HH because he is a big liar and failure who can fail the entire nation.He lied and failed on the following as best examples:
    FIVE times elections, Parentage of Edgar Lungu, Election petition, Presidential impeachment, his own party convention, his party MP protest in parliament against president Lungu, Privatization and he is now laying on wind of change and assassination.
    Good people of Zambia wake up and never be taken by lies.

  18. If he cannot not do a ” simple ” thing as to say sorry mwana it was a slip of the tongue or it was in a fit of anger, how genuine can he be at the so called national dialogue. It’s very surprising that even respected churches and a certain professor have been taken in by Hikainde. HH has only one thing on his mind and that at the so called dialogue the church can convince Edgar to hand over power to him.

  19. ZAmbia has an elected President, acknowledging this will help opposition come to terms with reality and dwell on matters that prevent electoral malpractice such as constitutional reform and amendments of the POA. But wait? Opposition has said they won’t participate in this because they want to follow the Church agenda about dialogueing on everything. Let’s not forget 2021 is around the corner

  21. HH should just concentrate on his cattle farm. He will never be President of Zambia. He and his Tonga tribesmen have no shame of continuously yapping yapping like rabid dogs. How does he think our wonderful hardworking President can assassinate him? He is too childish. No wonder all his friends have started ditching him. He has now no where to run to apart from lying. Thief.

  22. Nickdimms, how can you shudder because what these guys are talking about are facts about one guy who is fondle of lying. We also shudder for your failure to decode sense from the postings herein. The problem, you expected bloggers to pour praises on what siakalima said. No sir! In the words of Julius Malema, in the absence of the best Eddie is the best regardless. The current oppo does not inspire at all in terms of morality and integrity.

  23. “UPND presidential advisor, Douglas Syakalima says Mr. Hichilema however; has no problem sitting on the same dialogue table with President Lungu despite his assassination fears.”

    How did we end up with this useless opposition party. The PF in opposition used to give the MMD sleepless nights with what the intended to do for the nation. They were never running to their best friends in south Africa to cry.

  25. Never heard of such a weird advisor. You mean the whole upnd that is the best they can do? Or is it trib.al Hacks who selects and appoints advisors? I think they should try Sean Tembo. Unfortunately trib.als don’t think that he meets the criteria. Maybe they should try Sejani, failing Sean Tembo.

  26. This is where Jay Gay’s input would be helpful for upnd but unfortunately he always keeps conveniently quiet on any matters concerning trib.al Hacks. And yet he wants to be seen as a champion when he clearly avoids saying anything that exposes the nonse.nse in his trib.al god or his advisors like Doglas Syakalima.
