Trevor Simumba

Trade and Economic Consultant Trevor Simumba has appealed to opposition parties to rally behind UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema for the 2021 general elections.

Mr Simumba said Mr Simumba is the best placed person to take on the PF in 2021.

He said other opposition party leaders should set their personal ambitions aside and support Mr Hichilema for the presidency in 2021.

“If we truly want to liberate Zambia from the shackles of this PF Kleptocracy, the answer is in working together and bringing forth a new generation of Zambian leaders with shared values of service to the nation, integrity and ethical stewardship of our national resources,” he stated.

“Opposition leaders for once get out of your egotistic dreamland and sacrifice for the sake of Zambia. You cannot all be President at once. I have analysed and thought of different scenarios but each one shows that without an Opposition Alliance, the PF will win the Presidency. But who can beat them?”

He added, “We all know that the best placed person to take on the PF is Hakainde Hichilema. Let us support him. We can agree a proportional share at Parliament level and Local Council level but for President lets have one opposition candidate.”

“It is the only way 2021 can be won. Without that unity forget it. Get over this tribal nonsense, Zambians are not tribal. With one opposition candidate we will consign the PF to the dustbin of history. We cannot afford another five years of this President. Even our patriotic friends and relatives in PF know it.”

He added, “Find the courage to get out and help Zambia recover its glory. Zambia needs a new beginning. We need to overhaul the Constitution and strengthen the Separation of Powers and ensure Zambia never elects such a terrible President again.”

Mr Simumba said the level of selfishness and pure greed amongst the PF leadership is unprecedented.

“We have two living former Presidents and I believe three living former Vice Presidents and none of them can even raise a hand to say enough is enough. So it is up to us the citizens to use our vote in 2021 wisely and ensure we protect our votes when they count,” he demanded.

    • Spot on Trevor. the fact is, Lungu MUST go. Wr cannot afford another 5yrs of this incopetent, corrupt, theiving man. HH has thebmost support. If the opposition care about the welbeing of Zambia they must rally behind HH.
      I have some issues with HH, but am coming to campaign and vote for him. Lungu HAS to go

    • HH disappointed us when he choose GBM as running-mate.
      If he HH was wise-man he could listen to us to give him a running-mate. If Ba Nalumango don’t want to face “insults” , then HH should surprise us with Charlotte Scott.
      I repeat:
      HH is very intelligent, but no wise.
      Nalumango is wise, but ordinary intelligent.
      Bo Inonge is very wise, but not intelligent.
      Ba Edgar is ……………. judge yourself, what a disgrace

    • Trever Maliwanda Simumba.

      If HH was the best option for Zambia, the people could have realised a long time ago. You cannot override the (i) Gut Feeling, (ii) Instincts, (iii) Intellect, (iv) Judgement of the people of Zambia

      Trevor, you are economist and you are parallel with HH. You obviously can see areas in which HH can do well in running the economy.

      However, you are forgetting the Big Picture. Running the nation is not just about doing the economy. HH is not a Uniter. He was left with a big chunk of MP’s by Mazoka. He has lost two thirds of that.

      HH has failed so many times to denounce the so coined – UPND to be Party For The Tonga. This ideology has been embedded inside UPND for a long time. Its there very strong in Southern Province.

      Advise HH to work…

    • Trevor, Being “the best placed person to take on the PF” does NOT make Hakainde the best for Zambia. He is a lesser evil though as compared to the incompetent drunkards currently overseeing the affairs of this country. But I can assure you folks that looting will continue even under Hakainde because he has ZERO credibility. How else can you explain the appointment of GBM as his running mate. a person who publicly stated that he was in politics to make money?

      Trevor, advise HH to improve his likeability. He fails to connect with common people.

      Secondly, his judgement remains to be questioned. What was he thinking in choosing GBM to be his running mate. That mistake has left a lot of people wondering in Zambia about HH.

      Unfortunately, too often in life, a single mistake can override everything you have worked for in your whole entire life. And look how it has ended up with GBM.

      “” Trevor, the credit i give you is that – if HH had 15 more people who were vocal like you, he would do much better. And I know you from the 90’s when we’re all students in London. You are smart and brave. UPND praises itself to be a party of intellectuals, but it has proved to the opposite of that. Its all on paper but not in motion…

      Let there be as many parties as possible on the land. Let CKinsultor try his luck, let Edith try her luck, let Mutati try his luck, let Sinkamba try his luck, let Wynter try his luck, let Mmembe try his luck.
      Simumba is trynna suggesting undemocratic tendencies. Multipartism remember?
      A bipartisan Zambia is a definite no no. It should not run in our blood.
      Simumba is already sensing and feeling yet another UPNDEAD demolition, brutalizing, whacking, defeat at the 2021 polls.
      Anything else but the tribal UPNDEAD please.

    • If PF fails we will try someone else not this crook called HH. How did he get rich after being involved in privatisation? How did he buy a Lima bank house and shares in Sun Hotel after being involved in their liquidation.
      He never condemned people that maimed others in his name in Namwala. No the man is close to the devil himself.
      Despite being stinking rich his relatives are suffering. His farm workers go months unpaid although their salaries are too low.
      He does not consult his MPS just dictates to them. Anyone not agreeing with him is considered his enemy.
      Ask senior UPND members and hear what they say about the man. For me and my family NEVER for this guy.

      Furthermore, HH would be learning on the job. You don’t need a rookie at helm at the moment, you need a steady hand because current economic issues are global not Zambia specific.

      What policy ideas has he ever generated either through his MP in parliament today or his own?? All we have is a 10 point one page draft.

      That’s not how a government in waiting behaves. Compare that veracity to MSC (MHSRIP) to HH when the two were in opposition in terms of policy.

      What criteria did you use to arrive at your conclusion??? Nothing!!! How democratic is he??? What is his political history as an elected official??? Nothing!!!

      How about his business success??? Started with a $350,000,000 net worth in 2006 ~ Forbes Magazine and yet he’s only worth $75,000,000 today (Panamá Cash included).

      Instead of growing his own net worth, he has squandered it. Is that someone best suited to run the Zambian Enterprise??? The list is endless.

      Trevor, if you want to be his running mate you go kiss up all you want. The smart people of the Zambian Enterprise are ready for 5-Zero in 2021.

      My money is still on ECL, he may not be the best person to run Zambia but he’s the best among the alternatives. You are not going to change government with HH, it’s a pipe dream.

      Look for someone else. Elias Chipimo on a one on one match maybe even the best alternative but unlike his father, he doesn’t know how to grow from within and that’s been his downfall.

      Elias is an extremely intelligent man, a Rhodes Scholar with brilliant ideas but is a Lone Ranger with serious trust issues.

      The Edgar Chagwa Lungu as President with Brian Hapuunda as Vice-President (Running Mate) for 2021 is a landslide ticket.

      For 2 reasons, it balances the geo-political equilibrium for the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise for one while bringing in youthful leadership to the fore.

    • Trevor wants relevance all the time. He albeit falls short all the time. Look at analytics from one BRM and learn from him. Maybe, only maybe you will one day learn to be objective.

      I don’t support Lungu 100% but HH is the worst candidate to replace him. Believe me child!!! I also agree with BRM that if Chipimo understood systematic dynamics, and learned to work from within, his rise would be meteoroidic.

      That’s a classic study for anyone aspiring to leadership.

      Also, you have paraphrased my words. I have said here several times before that HH’s biggest problem is that he’s not smart … he’s clever but not smart.

      He actually has a lower IQ than ECL. Compare the two men’s demeanor and therein lies your answer.

    • First and foremost Trevor Simumba is Tonga, his analysis is not based on hh as a best candidate but been a Tonga. The truth is hh is not the best candidate he maybe an economist but he’s not the best. This is the man who does not support anything good, the man who controls his MPs, the man who does not attend any national event, the man who fires anyone who supports the efforts of the government. A good example is the case in kafue, where a Upnd counsellor was fired for supporting the cleaning efforts by Lungu, who does that? Hh is a bitter man, like l say all the time Bembas, Nsengas in Upnd are wasting their time. A Tonga bull will never allow you to run Upnd.

    • Why is Zambia my country full of educated id01ts who can not see that the economic problems the country has have been caused by PF and Lungu its inept Leader who thrives on stealing. Can’t they see that Lungu is destroying the country completely.

      One even went to the extent of saying the bad economy has nothing to do with Lungu by God. Really??????

      For Zambia to develop Lungu must go and HH should take over.

      I urge real Zambian professionals to join Laura Miti and group to protest for the removal of Lungu and corruption.

      And yes, HH is not the answer to the current economic problems. Itemize your response, thanks.

      Also, even if you removed ECL, you would still have the same problems now, how do you propose to solve them?

      Once you have a blueprint of how you intend to move the country forward, we might look at your plan.

      I for one am open to pragmatic solutions, my current analysis and calculus tells me the best alternative is none. The status quo is more viable.

It’s called choice, promote your choice without insulting those with a different opinion.

    • @BR Mumba and Luchembe,

      If you two guys do not understand and can not perform causal analysis then its NOT my fault. Its this very fact that forces me to call most PF aligned educated Zambians as educated f00ls because they know and understand why our economy is in trouble but choose to either stay mute or praise the status quo hoping the heavens will solve their problems. If such does not amount to being an educated 1d1ot then what can I call it?

      But lets rewind the discourse starting from UNIP. KK did his part but overstayed and caused food shortages and hyper inflation. Then Chiluba took over, economy returned to better standing but then he messed it up by his rampant corruption. Mwanawasa took over and managed to correct things.

Now under PF Kwacha is 3 times weaker than when PF took over. Thats why inflation and food prices have crept up wards.

      The least you can accept is that the PF cretins have destroyed the Zambian economy. I can not condemn you for who you choose to support to replace the PF cretins but if you think PF cretins are still the ones to save Zambia after having stolen so much, then you also blind in thinking.

      I am not aligned with PF and I think they can defend themselves adequately and when it comes to corruption, I can tell you for a fact that the UK and most EU countries are the best examples of countries that try to fight corruption in an honest way.

      The rest of the world, the Chinese, the Russians, the Americans, the Latinos, the Indians, the Africans and pretty much the rest of the world are all corrupt.

I find it hard to believe that every time even educated people talk they will bring in the aspect of tribe that and that (whether positive or negative it is bad). This is why UPND ended up with GBM as VP – because reasoning is always overtaken by the tribal lens. Let us just argue without branding a group of people tribe this and that. We have worked in all parts of Zambia and have found good and bad people, it is just the nature of human beings.

      The UPND tribal talk started with Ackson Sejani whom HH would have done well to condemn then for suggesting that only a Tonga can succeed Mazoka. That is what killed the UPND spirit! However, all is not lost. Whether we like it or not, UPND is the second biggest party in the country commanding 50% support. We have to choose again between PF and UPND in 2021 unless a third force emerges. The only advice I have for UPND is they must hold a Convention to renew their…

      That is all why parties always have a big fight over Copperbelt votes where people are quite educated but when it comes to rural rural these parties just withdraw knowing whatever they do, the people will go with their tribe or anyone sympathetic to their tribe. Lets just look at Zedian political personalities. Lungu is copperbelt breed and went to school-he wont be tribalistic. Vernon Mwaanga was raised in Lusaka and London, he cant be tribal.

  6. That is what it is. People need to open their eyes and see that there is grace of God on HH. By the way, FIC you have made us proud by standing firm against these PFOOLs. It reminds me of how one wonderful lady called Madonsela stood her ground against the JZ intimidation and served SA with distinction. Mary and your chairperson continue and do not be intimidated by a foolish dictator.

I remember watching ECL on TV at some stadium during the funeral of President Sata.ECL was crying charging that there was cartel that was bent on taking over our country.He drew widespread sympathy.five years later,he seems to have been taken over by a cartel.He was crying for a bango that he cannot play

  8. The best way to punish PF is to vote for HH whom they dread because they know he will wean them from their dependency on the treasury through tenderpreneurship!
    No need to fear an HH presidency because he will be limited by terms of office! If he does well in his first term, we can allow him to finish his second term as well!
    After all he has told us that he won’t need a Salary or allowances to turn our economy around. What can be better than that?
    For those who say he stole during Privatization (which no one has proved) would it not be a wise idea to make him pay back through his service to the nation?
    What all Zambians need is a functioning Economy! When the economy is doing fine, no one cares about politics or which tribe you come from. Zambians were so rich under Mwanawasa to the…

  11. HH is a good business man but Zambia is a public sector-driven economy.Unless he shows proof that he can reforms and revitalize the public service,he risks becoming exactly what ECL has reduced himself to: A talking head without hands, torso and legs to implement his policies.He must commit to a broadbased public service and difuse more power from the presidency by decentralization

  12. I think HH will do well and since he already has money corruption will be a thing of the past, the problems we are facing now with these PFoools is because they were all poor with 28 kwacha in the pocket when they took over the presidency, the only thing they think of is stealing and drinking free whiskey….. On the other hand HH is a good business man who has seen all kinds of contracts which PFoools only heard of in their lives.. thats why the debt is out of control

  14. Trevor you’re free to express your opinion, however some of us think Hichilema is a political failure who has killed intra UPND democracy. By the way, it doesn’t mean that if all opposition leaders rally behind him then he can win elections. He failed before in 2006. Although Mazoka was equally a tribalist, at least he respected the tenets of democracy. If you wish to know about his dishonesty ask Nawakwi and Tilyenji. FDD and UNIP have never recovered from Hichilema’s assault, the chap was even issuing adoption letters to his tribesmen in the night. He thought the UDF was an opportunity to further Tonga superiority. He will continue to fail because he’s not honest

Open your eyes people… HH is a Saputello (The Mr.Know it and most intelligent man in Zambia) Lets wake up! Its better people that can lead this country from its economic situation than him from within the same UPND such as Garry Nkombo etc. Ine i would rather even vote for Harry Kalaba or KBF than him cause for the past 16 years or so its the same finger pointing and showing he is better than everyone else. HOW?? The world keeps evolving from education to human rights, technology, policies, world trade etc and he claims to know it all. Ba Simumba lets be serious!

    • You just hate the guy mune, stop those nonsense justifications. Everyone in UPND is comfortable with HH just like you are in love with that visionless !mbecile Lungu. Better a person who claims he knows stuff and this is seen from his wealth and investments than a bum who confesses to knowing nothing at all and we actually see the fruits of his ignorance. You speak of KBF, a man who has stolen from clients as much as Lungu as a lawyer and lost his licence just like Lungu. What has KBF done to inspire such accolades from you? Has he built a school or clinic somewhere like HH has done? KBF gave us Lungu so they are from the same pot. You are just a simple jealous hater mune like your friend Ndanje.

    • Ba @Dudelove I have no hate for HH lets get 1 thing clear. I just have a problem with people that claim to be saints and know it all. Everywhere in history such people turn out to be the opposite. Who even told you that everyone in UPND is happy with HH?? If clearly you are a UPND supporter and you are indeed happy with him thats you & i respect that but that does not mean you even represent a 3% of UPND supporters within. How do you then also explain a person that keeps standing but keeps losing and you say everyone in UPND is Happy with him shouldn’t that tell you something. Truthly, I see alot of UPND MPs who are far much articulative & firm given the Opportunity to lead this country than HH.

    • Ba Ghost, HH has been standing and losing but with every loss the margin gets smaller. Does that to you spell that people are unhappy? I would think he would be losing by very huge margins but he keeps gaining ground. So you say KBF has not been claiming to be good and a saint because he has. Do you believe KBF to be a saint considering his past of embezzling clients? Am trying to understand why you want KBF as opposed to HH since both claim to be saints.

    • @Dudelove on KBF… He has a clear road Map and has seen that the current PF leadership has messed up big time from the initial PF manifesto and will to develop Zambia and elevate it out of its abject poverty. He even goes on to say that he apologies on behalf of the PF for the poor quality of life subjected to adding that the PF must accept that the quality of life for an average Zambian has dropped to unacceptable levels. Well on the other side its different for HH. He talks of free University.. YES thats a good idea and plan but he has never explained how he is going to do it.. He usually blows out hot air on anything even though the government has done well. This is what i always say: He is in the opposition and yet does not offer proper Checks and Balances from the current position…

    • So you are willing to go with a man who has a criminal past, licence suspended, has indulged in very shady dealings and has no track record of major investments that has employed thousands of Zambians just because he has apologised and made a good speech? A man who helped Lungu fraudulently win the nomination ku Kabwe? A man who went and woke up a judge kuma 04 to sign an order barring the continuation of the convention so that Lungu was chosen? The whole of that history you forget just because he has apologised on behalf of PF and not his transgressions? You are a very very easy man to lie to and convince my friend. You cannot compare that track record to HH and that is why I insist this is just pure personal hatred. Simple.

    • HH has been advising your government from the time of Sata, indiscriminate loan contraction, he was called bitter. There is that famous letter Sata wrote on State House letterhead acknowledging receipt of a letter HH had written to him and then telling him off. What kind of checks and balances exactly do you want him to offer when everytime he says something advising this government, you same people rush here to call him bitter and tell him to shut up? No my friend, your argument does not hold any water at all. You just dislike the man. Admit it the way Ndanje did. You cannot justify declaring you would vote for a criminal lawyer to replace another criminal lawyer at the expense of a man who has never been cited for any criminal activities apart from by PF supporters. It just does not…

      How can a person in his right mind support KBF who fraudulently installed Lungu in power after arm twisting judges to block the court injunction to nullify Lungu ‘s election by show of hands and thuggery at Mulungushi rock of authority. He openly boasts about this. He installed the cretin Lungu in power who he now accuses of being unthankful.

      This KBF cretin is now fighting Lungu because he feels left out on major bucks deals and did not get the justice ministry as promised to him by Lungu.

      KBF is a thief fighting his fellow thief Lungu. Remember there is no honour amongst thieves.

      Let’s help to heal this country from the current ethnic divide! Zambia was fractured in 2016 between its historical lines of Northwestern Rhodesia (Barotseland) and Northestern Rhodesia. It’s painful for us who were born across this divide and have married across this divide to continue entertaining tribal talk. Between ECL and HH, ECL has just been paying lip-service to the One Zambia One Nation. Look at his appointments in GRZ, it’s not a composition that can unite the country. The UPND Central Committee has a national representation compared to that of PF! PF has failed us! If it means voting for a Frog in 2021, let’s do so! God will see us through!

I dont think so.

  21. TS is saying loudly what everyone is saying silently. The word on lips is one candidate only: HH. It could be HH or a leader chosen by consensus as the winning number, such as Chipimo. Sometimes, HH shows signs of combat fatigue. To unseat a sitting president, the best formula is to present one and only opposition candidate. This technique was used by MMD to usher FTC. In my view, the contest between two candidates alone would prove the maturity of Zambian democracy and silence all critics.

      Let’s try what Ghana is using. They have thrown away the multiparty system and come up with only two parties representing the two regions that formed Ghana!
      Remember that Zambia used to be two states – Northwestern Rhodesia (Barotseland) and Northeastern Rhodesia!
      A two party system can work better on rotation basis the way it is working in Ghana. This is why Ghanaians are largely apolitical. They just switch rulers between the two regions when their tenure lapses. Let’s just throw away this multiparty thing and embrace the American system which Ghana has adopted maybe our democracy will mature!

    • In SA they were saying Mbeki can’t connect and thought Zuma was better. They are regretting the wasted 10 years. HH connects to all well meaning people who are not crooks. He was a chief executive for 12 years at a very young age and left with a clean and impressive track record which PFOOLs can only envy. He won elections in 2015 and 2016 which a certain foolish dictator rigged. In this way a fool placed by the devil blocked the fortunes of Zambia including PF base fellows who busy denouncing a righteous man for their wicked hidden agendas. We pray for God’s intervention in Zambia.

God is a King and has a Kingdom with Laws, Commandments, Statutes and Judgements. The Kingdom of God is in YOU! (Luke 17:20-21).

This is their intention all along, to sabotage the country and Claim that their candidate is best placed to repair it.

Seriously, we have seen enough of his troubled personality, he doesn’t understand what government is and does.

    Panama papers
    Ramcoz
    Under valueing and selling to self – insider trading

    Who can forget.
    I know Simumba was a child but I know half the population of Zambia are older than him even though most Miners died because of the misery HH and his Company put them through.

  42. Yes I agree with you Simumba that HH is better placed to challenge the PF come 2021 which is still far away. I say so due to the fact that he has convinced the other contenders in the opposition to think in that line. Their coming together is to remove the PF at any cost including becoming followers to HH whose line of thought cannot be challenged or you see the door. Having said that, it does not mean to say that grouping shall win the hearts of the majority, far from it as long as the perpetual looser heads the club.

  43. I believe the best option for Zambia is us the Zambian people and not these few selective individuals you people call leaders/politicians.. They mean no good to a common man of this great nation…

  44. Are we running out of options or am I missing a point here? Please educate me? Unholy alliances are not good for the country as they tend to crack just after cabinet is announced. Although democracy is about numbers, the trouble in our country is that many people don’t understand why they vote for a candidate or their understanding is misled. So candidates use “electoral bribes”to win votes. This must stop!

  45. HH is not very saleable that is why he needs a “good” running mate. The choice of GBM was his undoing. And if he goes for Kambwili that will be worse. That will be a sure way of losing. HH should not shy away from choosing a good candidate for a running mate even if that person comes from southern province. This is belief that his running mate should come from Northern province is a misnomer. He had GBM, what happened?

  46. thank god if we count for and against we discover hh is a winner and indeed he is going to take it despite the tribal remarks being levelled against him . many have seen the truth and sense that pf is nothing. they have done all they could to damage the economy by steatiling everything and all has backfired. enough is enough go and wait for jail judgements soon.

  47. Trib.al Hacks best option? Naimwe ba Simumba mulebako serious… that guy is a trib.al through and through, otherwise all this time why hasn’t he apologised for being trib.al? If he wanted to be President all he had to do is make an apologise, simple.

  48. Trevor must have been drunk when waisted his breath to say what he said. Or may be hes just mad. HH is the worst person among opposition leaders you can think of leading Zambia! Because hes a known thief who plundered Zambia through privatization program, hes selfish
    and a dictator as he has led UPND
    for over 12 years without intra-party
    elections we dont want another KK
    Wamuyaya, hes a known tribalist
    who kicked Patrick Chisanga and
    others when he came from nowhere to lead the party.

    to lead the party, hes very crooked because he has avoided taxes in Zambia by banking his wealth in other countries where taxes are lower as is he going to convince not to bank my wealth outside if he became president. Mr. Simumba think again. Dont hate because PF has not appointed you Finance…

  49. Trevor Simumba: “If we truly want to liberate Zambia from the shackles of this PF Kleptocracy, the answer is in working together and bringing forth a new generation of Zambian leaders with shared values of service to the nation, integrity and ethical stewardship of our national resources,” he stated.

    Iwe Simumba, that is what all politicians and aspiring politicians say, as if they care for the people. You are just positioning yourself for a government appointment. Since PF has not appointed you, you think that Trib.al Hacks offers you the best chance if you started lobbying for his votes now. Its becoming a trend with Zambian economists, just look at the way Habanjoka at EAZ has reduced himself to a party cadre, difference is that he thinks his best chance is now with Lungu, but if…

  50. .. . It’s becoming a trend with Zambian economists, just look at the way Habanjoka at EAZ has reduced himself to a party cadre, difference is that unlike Simumba he thinks his best chance is now with Lungu, but if Lungu does not appoint him, just observe how he will “seamlessly” switch to Trib.al Hacks in 2021.

  51. ….For God’s sake iwe Trevor, Trib.al Hacks is not President and will never be one purely because he is a trib.al “leader” for all his political career so far. How can a right thinking Zambian professional, if you are one, support a trib.alist to lead Zambia? Kapenene uko kwine ne nsala yobe!!
    Trib.al Hacks is NO OPTION for Zambja.

  52. I have said this several times on this forum that if upndOWN is for Tongas only,it is better the get a new Tonga man in the name of Hachipuka or Matongo to lead it and you will see how the support will change.Mrs Nalumango is being used as a bait, just like CBanda, GBV,Chisanga,Sichinga etc(End of Thinking Capacity) were abused!!Look at the way Sakwiba was ejected, on mutunduism(tribalism)!!But I don’t support ecl, since the demise of MCS and PF proper, but from what is available politically on the ground, especially the opposition, useless!!No one matches the current leadership.But PF must swallow it pride and talk all the people it has forced of pf to reconcile.What is that day of prayer and reconciliation aimed at?Is it for religious entertainment?Ministry of Guidance must take a…
