President of the opposition United Party for National Development Hakainde Hichilema says he is pleased that there is no more load shedding at Chawama Level one Hospital.

Mr Hichilema says he believes the blocked Genset donation to the Hospital by the Police has force the Patriotic Front to stop load shedding at the health facility.

He said the provision of electricity by the PF needed to be done as a matter of routine instead of waiting for the UPND intervention for them to save people’s lives.

“Ordinarily, such a move did not need a risk intervention from some of us where the PF deployed a battalion of police officers at short notice in Chawama to block us from donating a genset to the hospital. Like we said during our press briefing, this measure should be extended to all hospitals and clinics in the country.It should also be extended to other key security installations as well as military and police camps.It should further be extended to universities, colleges and boarding schools in the country. We cannot have our security personnel in camps and our children in learning institutions going without electricity for more than 12hours.Can you imagine the illicit activities our children can end up doing in darkness at boarding schools instead of studying?” Mr Hakainde said.

Mr Hichilema however said it is not surprising that the Chawama hospital was load shedded as it is a sign of lack of leadership on the part of the PF.

“I therefore instruct that this gesture be extended to other hospitals to save lives and other critical installation that require uninterrupted power supply”, he added.

He said the UPND shall continue giving leadership where there is none in the country due to incompetence.

President Edgar Lungu on Friday 13th September 2019 during the Official opening on the fourth session of the 12th National Assembly directed the Ministry of Energy to prioritise power supply to hospitals and health centres.

  1. You are giving instructions as a who. In case you did not get it, the President of the republic of Zambia gave the instruction/direction to the ministry of energy, Sir. It seems you do not get it, we have only one President of Zambia sir.

      Try and donate sometihig elsewhere and see what happens. It will become a donation race until Zambians are served as they should be. Equation solved.

    • Often HH tries too much to be + (relevant) and in the end he becomes
      (irrelevant).

      ++ Lungu directed the Ministry of Energy to prioritise power supply to hospitals and health centres during his opening of Parliament.

      Today HH wants to get credit that he influenced this directive. The government does not need intervention from UPND to save people’s lives. Really how does this guy’s mind operate when it comes to politics ??

    • @Adrew. You don’t get it. Your president is a counterfeit. Even doves refused to fly. The true president is giving directions now and you better listen to HH. I can assure you that Lungu is just waiting for a life long jail term. He knows his crimes.

  2. HH, for once be civil in your tone and language and try see the merits in certain proposals. Zambia has no water to generate enough electricity in 2019 and this is true for all to see except you. We know that you HH know that 2018 rain season was very poor that it affected especially Southern Province to the point of crop failure, this we know you know but dont want to accept but blame it on Lungu! The poor rains led to the famous Kuomboka tradition ceremony to be cancelled and the Kariba dam recording the lowest levels in 24 years, this we know you know but want to play politics, what type of a person are you iwe HH? Ask Zimbabweans how this affected them since they also depend mostly on waters from Kariba dam for their electricity generation, but have you see the opposition there…

    • @Spaka. Yes load shedding is for the poor. I realized load shedding is for the poor when I was walking on foot, as if you can walk any other way other than on foot, from Crossroads Shopping Mall to my residence in Kabulonga (I am a beneficiary of FTJ alleged corruption as I bought the house under his home empowerment scheme so don’t talk ill of FTJ) at 1900 hours when I saw a number of houses had lights on. I thought it was one of those days when ZESCO allows you to have electricity until I reached my house which was in total darkness. That is when it hit me that the houses I saw with lights on were using either gensets or inverters.

    • As for hospitals I am not in favour of gensets because there will be a problem of fuel unless HH will be providing fuel as well. The best solution are inverters which work on the principle that the batteries are being charged when ZESCO is on but releases AC electricity using the inverter when ZESCO electricity is off. Disadvantage – no cooking and iron pressing unless with a very big battery. Better still have a separate line from the substation to the health facility.

    • Ask GVBM, CB and others if devious CK has moral fiber to accepting advice or a light moment of reflection.
      On that oval mind he needs the seat; plot one at all costs.

      He will grow insensitive to all matters on the ground and hit PF harder at political mirage gain.

      There is absolute need for food in Bengwa relative to Bauleni. He chooses to be where cameras are rolling and the loudest sound so he can be seen and heard.

      I am sure PF is closely studying h²’s cheap politicking maneuvers.

    • So all those tuma donations will finaly be the talk of the day.
      When some on this podium said when h² gives, he does it with a heavy heart, it didn’t ring bell.
      Now I am getting it.
      A loose tongue and payback time for Bauleni is fast approaching.
      Double h is indeed a strange and devious dealer even in his so called strategy.
      We will see what happens enroute to 2021. I am sure PF is closingly studying h² tricks and maneuvers.

    • He is a devious crooked liar and a devil. No wonder Zambians don’t like him.
      But in 2021 UPND will still accept him to be president of their cult for another 5 years in opposition.

  5. how hatred is displayed on this blood…… God causes rain to fall on both the righteous and the wicked….. Jesus did not die for PF only …. Sometimes some Zambians are not true to themselves for themselves by themselves…..
    Though Lungu is President or not He is not eternal President….. I have never voted in my life because I don’t want to worship a leader…. Those who heap adoration for Lungu will one day curse him …. I remember Chiluba……..
    Never trust a human being but Trust GOD only………

    • President Lungu is the only president that has been criticized and praised at the same time. When he does wrong we criticize him, when he is good we implore him. Unlike Chiluba who all Zambians not UNIP followers were blinded by. Simply because the Kaunda regime had suppressed self expression. Had President Kaunda allowed self epression, MMD would have ruled better under a different president not Kafupi.

  6. We thank you our working president his Excellency hakainde hichilema. This is the leadership Zambia has been missing. Even us here in UK we are fundraising funds to help poor zambians. My white wife on her own has raised 20000 pounds so far. Please can you all thank her.

    Appreciating a leader when he is alive is not worshipping him..

    Look at your HH, the only man who sees a light in every calamity. Even when he hears that the president is not well, je celebrates….worse still, when he hears the sitting head of state is dead ya ya ya he sees opprtunity to plot one. But Zambians are not fools they know him he will end up keep state coffers in paradise that you and i are aware of…he is simply evil and a full time disaster

  10. When load shedding was inevitable…..one would have thought these rats in power would prioritise places like hospitals….

    But, no……busy looting and trying to silence opposition 24/7….

    It took HH to donate a genset for them to realise that hospitals should be exempt from load shedding to a maximum….

      Maybe we will see this loadsheding craziness disappear.

      Hail double h’s strategy, the declarer of hunger situation in Zambia, load shedding and famine will disappear.

      I will equally be thrilled at this mammoth gesture. Hail, hail, double h is a working opposition lead. A nightmare in day dreaming is definitely crazy stuff.

      Stealing is on their minds 24/7…….

  11. You also bring back the money you cleverly stole during privatisation which is stacked in off shore accounts (paradise pappers) and we can build more power stations and in three to five years we’ll have no load shedding. How I wish you thought about that 15yrs ago.
