The G650 Gulfstream Ferrari private jet believed to cost around US$65 million
The G650 Gulfstream Ferrari private jet believed to cost around US$65 million

UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema says he will sell off the presidential jet recently acquired by President Edgar Lungu if he becomes Head of State.

And Mr Hichilema has called for a national dialogue on national economy.

Mr Hichilema said if elected President, he will dispose off the presidential jet and use the proceeds to pay student meal allowances and retirees.

“We don’t need that expensive jet to get around. We will sell it and give students their meal allowances, among other important needs,” Mr Hichilema said.

He said exorbitant government expenditure has driven the national budget deficit that makes it difficult to pay civil servants salaries, medical supplies and support UNZA students with meal allowances.

Mr Hichilema said a UPND Government will not allow unnecessary expenditure at the expense of the Zambian people.

“What I can confirm is that we will not need a Presidential Jet. However our security as the Presidency is determined by other agencies and they recommend what is ideal. But we shall not burden the tax payer,” he said.

And Mr Hichilema says there is urgent need for a national dialogue on economic recovery.

Good afternoon friends. We have issued this statement below. Kindly widely share.

“There is no need to pretend anymore about the ongoing economic crisis facing the country. We are all fully affected regardless of our political persuasion,” Mr Hichilema said in a statement.

“Instead of wasting time and resources at the ongoing PF engineered National Dialogue Forum, well meaning citizens must urgently come together and rescue this country from the economic sabotage,” he said.

“The agriculture sector is at an all time low, mining firms are shutting down critical operations resulting in massive job losses, the cost of living and doing business keeps escalating, inflation is increasing, the Zambian currency is tumbling against major currencies plus many other depressing issues.”

He added, “On the other hand, corruption is getting worse and those holding instruments of power are not giving any direction on where we are headed as they cannot face the citizens by way of a national address to give hope.”

Mr Hichilema said the country is running on autopilot hence the need for some form of leadership by those of like him who care for the country and can offer some policy alternatives.

“Zambia belongs to all of us, so we must get concerned and take remedial measures to address the distressing economic situation in the country. This is the kind of dialogue that must be promoted as no one has a monopoly on knowledge,” he said.

“People from various sectors including marketeers, drivers, miners, students, youth and women, should all be given a platform to offer solutions. The nation cannot be subjected to the kind of circus that is currently going on at the PF driven national dialogue when our economy is in a free fall,” he stated.

“Let’s put our heads together and address the ongoing economic collapse,” he said.

  1. Dont be childish. You dont sell a custom made machine like freaters

    You are talking exactly like sata who said he would sell challenger bought by LPM Unfortunately 90% of Zambia voter believe such crap.

    Hes either ignorant all he thinks we are all ignorant like chaps who thump we DOWN

    PF is a dead party all we need is just burial now. But you worry to think who takes over reigns of power.

How come his predecessor Sata used to fly commercial and there were no issues with that ? Yet you want to pretend that this Jet is a necessity ….. What sort of citizens are you ?? You run away from Zambia and you want to believe someone else cannot sale this symbol of extravagance ?? Boasting na njala

    • Fortunately for us this dullard will never be President. So, his statement is water under the bridge.

      We are talking a mere G650 here @€65MM. Now compare that to Air Force One which cost €2 Billion to make whose operational costs are €200,000 per hour.

      Just Air Force One’s operational cost alone if run @24/7 mean that our $65MM would be completely spent in 13.5416667 days.

      In under 14 days you would run out of that money just making a similar operation. Ba HH, ikalenifye!!!

      You would still run out that money in another way. It’s not like ECL is gonna keep the G650 once he leaves office. FTJ left the Challenger, that Levy used, RB used, MCS used and even ECL.

      These are national assets that protect the presidency. Ikalenifye mwebo!!!

      – Gulf stream jet
      – UNZA
      – Women’
      – NDF
      – Youths
      – Health
      – Economical sabotage.
      – Corruption
      etc. Common man, be solid, find a core thing.
      Listen HH, I brought that ECONOMIC SABOTAGE. I give you for FREE. Now thats the word to preach day and, compose songs. Get focused on 1 thing. Like build the WALL.
      Be for something, like people know HH has guy with cows, but of course you have more than just cows. Do you get my point HH.

  3. That would be foolish. It’s not what is making most people angry as most voters are ignorant about that.
    Concentrate on devising a way on how to communicate politically, convince me on how you are going to increase foreign reserves, increase civil servants salaries and repay back huge loans.

  4. Sale it, these cadres don’t know that chi jet comes with a lot of costs like maintenance, storage, and other expenses. The savings can be used to pay farmers and civil servants on time. ECL is heartless making expensive purchases in the midst of economic woes and many civil servants not receiving their pay so it’s like jet first citizens last. Muzo you don’t have jobs like developed nations for people to be able to pay back, don’t forget many employers also offer employees tuition reimbursement coupled up with scholarships.

      The range on this plane in nautical miles is unbelievable. The Israelis did a marvelous job designing this plane with almost Mach 1 speed and fuel efficiency out of this world.

      London to Beijing non-stop, Miami to Lusaka/Johannesburg bon-stop, Los Angeles to Tokyo non-stop, Singapore to Lusaka/Johannesburg non-stop and Sydney to Luxembourg non-stop.

      Forgot to mention Hong Kong to Frankfurt non-stop and New York to Tel Aviv non-stop as well.

      Unbelievable range on one tank of fuel with increased security. It means you can fly further without engaging advance teams for the President in every country you stop over.

      Leave the Zam Force One alone. Your future great grand child will be President of the Zambian Enterprise one day and we will need to protect him the same way we are ECL.

The fact that HH was never arrested it means that these are all lies from PF Cadres. We are tired of this lie and want to know how our Economic Problems are going to be resolved. A Hungry and Hungry Man is very dangerous.

You say your security will be advised by state agents,suppose they tell to keep it what are you going to tell us? Please tell us how you will investigate plunder,put an end to cronyism,violence,tribalism, neglect to zambian businesess and state assets and all vices affecting our nation,solving them can guarantee a stable economy!

    It has nothing to do with his Tonga ethnicity. In fact, he has given Tongas a bad name! He just has no Political Swag! Running a country is not like buying shares and keeping cattle and calling yourself rich!
    Honestly, Selling the Jet will just be the beginning before he sells the remaining mines and the country! Just allow someone else to lead UPND if you mean well for the party and the country!

    Mazoka was WISE because he didn’t hide the truth.He opened up His throat and apologize and people believed him.

  18. He has a genuine concern about the economic situation in our great nation however the sale of presidential Jet is misplaced.
    I agree with him leaders need to provide leadership during the economic turmoil. Change of attitude and habits is called for.
    The life style should be checked. This is life style at all levels.

  19. The problem HH has is that he seems to have answers to everything and this is very dangerous. We all know that the presidential plane in good state is important for any sitting president and its folly for him to attempt gaining political millage on things he cant do. Yes, President Lungu like any of us are bound to make mistake and face challenges but whats important is how you come out of those dips. Remember, its the finishing that matters in the race and not the start.
    HH has been losing elections a donkey number of times, why hasnt he given others chance to run UPND? UPND under HH leadership has never articulated alternative solutions to the economic situation other than his now boring and defunct rhetoric of “I will fix the economy when in government”, but its that simple, how…

    UPND under HH leadership has never articulated alternative solutions to the economic situation other than his now boring and defunct rhetoric of “I will fix the economy when in government”, but its that simple, how come economies of most countries are struggling? For instance, if HH doesnt support PF Government on new tax regimes especially from the mines, how does he expect any sane person to believe his rhetoric? If HH is against infrastructure development drive, which we all know is the prerequisite for economic boom, then what is his strategy, cheap and short-term sugar coat solutions? No, Zambia is where it is today, because previous governments never took development seriously and Zambia lagged behind so much. Development undertakings are painful for but sweet in the long…

      This mentality of thinking only one man can solve your problems is dead and long gone. HH is not the best man that ever happened to Zambia, he can have is money, which we all know how he stole it, but we dont believe HH is the alpha and omega to the economic challenges in this country, thats a lie. Did you know that since independence, its only now that Zambia is experiencing massive development after KK’s few years in power? Dont forget that times have changed and that today’s dynamics are totally different from the 80’sa nd 90’s. In 1964, Zambia’s population was about 2-3 million people and we had so much foreign reserves left by the colonialists, but today, after HH sold and mismanaged the mines, and sadly he is still supporting those crooks, the population has soured…

      7
  22. In fact, there can be more demonstrations and anarchy in Zambia if HH had to win the presidential elections, God forbid, because he has been lying skin and and bone to the unsuspecting citizens that he will resolve all the economic problems. What Zambians must be very careful with HH is this, this man can be a brutal dictator when given instruments of power, why, because already we can all see with our open and closed eyes that infact he is has managed to mutate into a dictator. Just hear very carefully from people like GBM and Canicious Banda, who once thought HH was an alternative to their dreams, just listen carefully when they talk. HH is worse than apartheid crooks.

  23. HH has put a curse on tonga people.He is the reason why no tonga person will rule Zambia.HH first need to change his name to Mubanga Mulenga (MM) Then under go a ritual ceremony. That is the only way he can be accepted as a councilor in any other part of the country.
    If he doesn’t take my advise let him dream on.PF will return power come 2021.All we need is Kayombo and JK to release that 2021 campaign song ECL nafuti nafuti and all the tongas wil be dancing forward to vote for ECL all becouse of JK’s music. May God bless you Jk.

  25. Ba dala, stop thinking about lungu as a person, think about the presidency. The office of presidency has to be protected. Levy mwanawasa defended himself over the purchase of the challenger saying chiluba is the one who ordered it years before. In essence, that plane is now over 15 years old. Am sure that lungu was advised by experts to just purchase a new one rather than sending the aircraft for expensive scheduled maintenance to Canada at great cost to the nation. If you own a car, you will know that sometimes it’s better to just buy a new car rather than maintaining an unreliable aged car at great cost.
    If the challenger kills the head of state, we will have expensive funeral, costly downtime for national moaning, presidential by-elections, which will all cost more than four brand…

  27. We have said time and again, that Zambia has NO oposition in the name of HH. What we have is just a power hungry, insolent, thief who stole public funds by undervaluing public assets and getting a cut or buying the property himself. And today he (HH) says he will sell a National asset. The presidential plane does not belong to Lungu. Any head of state will use it. Sata used the challanger and did not sell it. Who does HH think he is fooling? Does it suprise him that he does not make the grade to be head of state? If anything, HH has been a bigger liability to our great nation than the cost of that state jet that he wants to sell. If HH had a heart for the Zambian people he should sell the Zambian properties that he undervalued and bought himself and donate the money to the hospitals…

  30. The people of Southern Province expected HH to champion the development of the region that has potential for agricultural evolution. Instead HH goes into childish play ground – for “manyengwe or ukubuta” – to demand for selling a national asset that he would use if miracles pronounced him as Zambian Republican President. Kambwili must take note that HH is finished as a politician – especially taking into account the fate of his ally, the Democratic Alliance (DA) after the bruising results of South Africa’s Election.

  31. Comments above in support of PFs careless expenditure is scary and it is the reason PF will be in power for a long time. The Private jet was a very expensive purchase in the midst of all the problems we have and you support it. There are schools in Zambia today with no desks yet you support this jet that is costing $1 million dollars a month to run and maintain.

The spokesman for CK has spoken once again each time he opens his mouth he puts his foot in it..Go lay down so after giving the money from the proceeds of the sale to students how long will the money last…such a childish man no wonder the wise have run away from you, even someone like GBM saw through you…by the way when are no naming a new VP and running mate since both CK and LK don’t want to ‘deputize’ you

  38. HH will be President of Zambia because he genuinely cares about the well being of Zambians losing jobs through retrenchment,Civil servants without salaries,hospitals without medicines,both universities closed,Kwacha in a free fall,farmers not getting paid,pensioners not getting paid.Who in his senses can honestly support the current government. On top of all the misery they want to increase the cabinet by introducing deputy ministers!

  40. A lot of PF dunderheads here are again missing the point or choosing to bury their empty heads in the sand. Being personal as well, rather than addressing the point of whether that jet was ever needed and whether the next head of state can do without it. In the context of the current economic situation and the fact that as far as I know, the challenger did not breakdown, was this a priority? Some go on to even ‘brag’ about the jets ‘abilities’. How relevant to the issue is the fact or claim that the jet can fly non-stop to far away destinations? I couldn’t care less if it is capable of flying ECL to Mars! Is that the point?

  41. See how the Proffesional PF cadres get triggered here when HH speaks.
    Am curious as to how they managed to be very silent when the issue at hand is the national debt and economic mismanagement.

  44. Comment:HH enjoyed the opportunity he had to sell Mosi otunya hotel together with the park at $56million ( and he became a shareholder with his business partner Chief Mukuni in the same) . HH is eyeing to acquire shares in that Jet by (deceive the masses ) disliking it yet it will be under his belt. Look at the properties he handled during privatisation he has shares in most of them meaning he was undervaluing these properties in order to have room to bargain from the buyer a cut that will be converted into shares . He was just a normal and ordinary economist b4 privatisation but after privatisation he soared to great heights overnight. I for one don’t trust you. Let us try Magande instead not HH, pliz Zambians,

  46. The issue here is not about the G650 being cheaper than Air Force One! It is about the care the current president has for Zambian citizens; how can he buy such an expensive plane when the poor in Zambia can no longer afford to suffer as they out-rightly dying en-masse? Gone are the days when majority Zambians used to live on a dollar per day; there is no dollar to talk about now! And this is deliberate poverty to induce careless docility and obedience in the citizens.
    Fortunately for us the statement that “this dullard will never be President” is taken as diarrhea from the mouths of the politically myopic and are prophecies that are doomed to fail. They are water under the bridge.

    We are talking a mere G650 here @€65MM. Now compare that to Air Force One which cost €2 Billion to…
