Sunday Chanda with UPND President Hakainde Hichilema
Sunday Chanda with UPND President Hakainde Hichilema

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has said that it has no time for a pretend President’s Jokes who is becoming more and more desperate for relevance and attention. In a statement released, in reference to the United party for National Development (UPND) Mr Hakainde Hichilema, PF Media Director Sunday Chanda wondered what Mr. Hakainde Hichilema has done about drought in Southern, Western and Eastern Provinces.

Mr Chanda said that it was even shocking how Mr. Hichilema has even attempted to get credit for the support the United Kingdom (UK) wishes to give Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in this Country.

Below is the full statement

WE HAVE NO TIME FOR THE “PRETEND PRESIDENT’S” JOKES

21st September 2019 – We continue to witness UPND leader becoming more and more desperate for relevance and attention. He does not mind to pretend that he is what he is not. He now issues a comical statement purporting to direct His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to immediately meet with stakeholders in the milling industry. This is laughable!

We wish to ask what it is that Mr. Hakainde Hichilema has done about drought in Southern, Western and Eastern Provinces? Which field has he been to? Whom has he spoken to except to post divisions and ridicule on climate change.

Zambians have watched with shock how Mr. Hichilema has even attempted to get credit for the support the United Kingdom (UK) wishes to give Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in this Country.

Mr. Hichilema may wish to recall that Her Honour the Vice President met with UK Representative to discuss hunger situation especially in Southern Province except he cannot remember as he is preoccupied with politics.

How does Mr. Hichilema propose meetings when he never attends any national event and even threatens UPND MPs against participating in national and parliamentary critical events?

Mr. Hichilema, cannot cheat anyone. He has no time for anyone, not even people of Southern and Western Provinces through there time of need.

While our opponents like the UPND leader have the luxury to make headlines , PF Government has been meeting stakeholders for the past two months.

The UPND leader should now know that headlines and pronouncements do not change anything. If he has anything to contribute to the Agriculture discourse, let us hear it instead of lamentation.

The PF Government is on the ground distributing food in Southern and Western provinces as well as weather index insurance payouts.

His Excellency President Lungu and the Minister of Agriculture Hon. Micheal Katambo have been busy this year meeting farmers and Agriculture stakeholders nationwide. Surely they do not have the privilege of stage-managed mealie meal handouts in Lusaka or online posts from the comfort of their homes calling for agriculture meetings. Their last field visit was this week in Southern province.

  1. The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has instructed every bank in the country to freeze all accounts belonging to Sakunda, Access Finance, Spartan security and Croco Motors and related entities.
    The development comes after the Emmerson Mnangagwa linked companies were exposed by the parliament portfolio for Public Accounts for allegedly being involved in massive looting of billions of dollars in the aftermath of the November 2017 coup.
    Sakunda is part of the military Command Element’s parallel banking system which has swindled  billions since the Robert Mugabe days.
    Within 5 months of the November coup, over USD 5,9 billion was looted from the central bank without a paper trail.
    Spartan security’s Chief Secretary is one of Mnangagwa’s sons, David.

    • … The timing of the freezing syncs well with the upcoming United Nations general conference in New York Emmerson Mnangagwa is flying to.
      A comment from the finance ministry and the reserve bank of Zimbabwe was fruitless at the time of writing.
      Former Finance Minister and current chairman of the portfolio on the Public Accounts Parliamentary Committee, Tendai Biti made further revelations at a rally in Glen View last month.
      He was speaking while curtain-raising for his boss, Nelson Chamisa. Said Biti, “Cde President these people steal.
      “I sit in the Parliamentary portfolio for public accounts. I have never seen this kind of theft. Mnangagwa and his people there is somewhere where they actually go and beer is brewed for them, and they are told to go and steal lions. I have never seen…

    • My personal opinion is that HH showed leadership on this issue and deserves credit, as for PF they have been too slow to take initiative. I hope next time they will be pro active

    • The problem is LT and h².
      These folks have been exciting upndeads day in day out on this podium, not helping matters.
      Everyday, it is double h this, double h that.

      Meanwhile that’s great article from PF now I am waiting for CSO. Government has given its position on FRA stock piles of maize in SP through Liato and Katambo.
      Desperate h² is really U5.

    • HH has been donating to charity since 1990 as far as I know but without seeking any publicity. I know it because I hv known the man for nearly 40 years.He has continued this no-publicity style and no one should think that wht has been publicized is all he has done. There are children in school now and some who hv completed school who owe their school completion to HH.

    • My honest views are that HH and his cadres always put tribe before the country. It’s disgusting seeing politicians selling their birth right to external interests. More on this…

    • Lungu should revisit the SI No 62 of 2017 degazetting of the Forest number 27.
      Like a concerned citizen asked, why would a President sign such a destructive SI, knowing very well that forest reserve 27 is the only forest remaining in Lusaka and a recharge area for chalimbana and Chongwe rivers?
      All the Zambian Presidents, from Kenneth Kaunda, FTJ Chiluba, Levy Mwanawasa, Rupiah Banda, to Sata, resisted and protected this forest from land scavengers. Why is it that only President Lungu has seen it fit to degazatte the forest and have it shared as plots, disregarding the danger and risks involved in this careless decision?
      The Water Resources Management Authority (WARMA) wrote a letter to Lusaka Province Planning Authority and expressed serious concerns regarding this development since…

    • It’s because Lungu and his people don’t want to be farmers in Luwingu, Mungwi, Kaoma or Kasempa. There’s plenty of arable land in those places but they would rather disturb livelihoods of villagers in Chongwe. After all they’re just second class people who don’t matter in Zambia.

  3. Am trying to educate my dippy dog Sharon about the importance of arguing intelligently and how to stick to the topic under discussion.
    So this Chanda thinks that donating to the needy is a competition? HH has more brains than thee whole lot of PF put together. Theirs is about looting and pretending to be holier than thou!!

  4. The only one who told jokes was that fool lungu during his address to parliament when he made fun of Zambia going without water. Sunday you are a useless rat who will face the long arm of the law soon. Don’t think bootlicking will protect you. Ask the former president chilubas family. They once thought they were untouchable. Today where are they? Be very careful. Meanwhile my white wife wants us to buy 2 houses in Lusaka. I am not keen on investing further in that country under pf. I don’t want my taxes feeding these corrupt rats.

  6. On one hand you say HH is a pretend president on the other you want him to do something about the anger situation at this point I think this HH guy is really tolerant because he never responds or instigate legal action against Sunday Chanda like seriously how many articles has Sunday Chanda wrote about HH if it was another person he would be behind bars

  7. Unlike the PF hypocrites HH, as sober as he always is, acknowledged that we have an emergency. He is a true leader unlike some imposters whose sole interest is to fatten their pockets.
    I am sure the UK acted in response to HH’s declaration. Thats a leader Zambia needs. Osati vaupuba ba Sunday!

    • HH has not acknowledged that the effects of adverse weather patterns in 2018/2019 season are responsible for the hunger. HH has not acknowledged that this drought was unprecedented and never seen in the last 40 years. HH has not acknowledged the effects of Cyclone IDAI on the agricultural season of 2018/2019. Who is trying he trying to f.o.o.l?

    • @ Tough but wanker
      Arshole, he did give warning 6 months before Idai. Also, well before Idai, he warned against export of maize. Your Fuc*ing Chada and whole of P1ssing F*ackers did ridicule his timely warning.
      Do you tr1bal 1mbecile know about El Nino and El Nina?

  8. HH has always been copying everything even at UNZA he was suspended because of being caught with a leaked paper but later was allowed back after serving…Records are there that he’s not original but his group think mentality sycophants and zealots and enemies of progress have continued worshipping him…

  10. Hakainde Hichilema is a sick human being who has politicized everything in Zambia. Today the country is divided because of Hakainde.
    The money that he stole has now accumulated to more than five billion US dollars. The population of Zambia is about 18,000,000. This means that if Hakainde decided to give all the money to Zambians, every Zambian can get $278.00 or ZMK3695. 00.

    Hakainde, however in politicizing hunger, first told his crooked friends in the UK that he was going to declare hunger in Zambia. You will agree with me that the speed at which the one million pounds was released clearly shows that this was prearranged.

    The money that is hidden in Panama could have been brought back a long time ago if we had serious investigative wings in the country. As long as these wings are…

  12. The first comment on Zimbabwe happenings is it true?where can I find the full story. Am not Zimbabwean but pan Africanist and care what is happening on this continent.This massively rich continent is lacking leadership. All we have is a bunch of weak, ignorant, self serving, poverty mindseted,corrupt, heartless,savage chaps masquerading as leaders.

  14. Former Aid to LPM jack kalala has observed that the only reason PF has not declared a hunger emergency are: 1. vissionlesness .2.Because the 63 districts are in opposition areas. Sunday stop boring us with your childish posts. We know you are selfserving you dunderhead even a kid can see that. You were tasked to do social media damage to your party’s biggest threat to their hold to power HH. but what you don’t realise people are just looking for sensible analysis of national issues and deep inside yearning for good performing national leaders at all levels who will spearhead the economic, social and political transformation of this country.

  15. Sunday Chanda is a huge liability to PF. He is antagonistic; it’s like he just dreams of how to react bullishly o events situation. You did not need to respond to this issue of hunger because many people know HH opened the way for the donations to happen. Learn to create an environment for collaboration young man; you are the guys who make politics look dirty. Learn from your colleague Amos Chanda, who bulldozed his way to Sunday Interview (twice actually) to demean people. Where is he now? Go to school if you lack some kind of communication decorum. By the way, you will be the most abandoned individual in near future.

  17. In the political environment the international community mostly only pay attention to government officials and usually the biggest opposition party leader so to say what HH says has no bearing on the perception of the international community is to tell a total lie .Case example a few years ago you yourself accused HH of sabotaging the economy because he portrayed the Zambian government has a dictatorship so Mr Sunday tell us which between your statements is the truth has HH got the influence to lower investor confidence including making UK donate or you lied about him having such influence so meaning the economy is bad because of you guys tell us
