HH speaking in Washington at the Woodrow Wilson Center.
HH speaking in Washington at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

By: Anthony Bwalya – UPND Member

The recent invitation of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), to speak at the Woodrow Wilson Center and address an audience of esteemed leaders from the world of politics and business, is a clear demonstration of the confidence and the highest premium the international community continues to place on his ability to provide leadership at the highest level of government.

The invitation of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema also underlines the desire by the international community for there to take place constructive and productive political and economic change in Zambia, the kind of change that would benefit both the citizens of this country, as well as our international partners.

It is also important to note, that serious investors will always put a heavy premium on sound political leadership that guarantees adherence to the rule of law, consistency around macro economic policy, guarantees a respect for human rights and leadership that is committed to stamping out grand and political corruption as these pose and impose a danger on the credibility and integrity of the investment environment.

The $25bn in active investment pledges are a further unequivocal endorsement of the quality and standard of public leadership the International community expects Mr. Hakainde Hichilema to enforce should Zambians trust his enough to form and lead the next government post 2021.

These $25bn investment conversations should in essence be taking between investors and the PF government of PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu, but that is not the case. And I do not want to leave Zambians in any amount of doubt about why this is not the case – Investors cannot and will not trust their big money projects with the PF government. It will cost investors anything between 10% – 25% on top of the actual investment value to invest in Zambia, owing to corruption and bad business environment managing practices being perpetrated by the PF government.

But what is heartwarming to note, is that Mr. Hakainde Hichilema emphasized to our international friends that while Zambia remains open for business, we seek constructive and actual business partnerships between our local and international investors.

We cannot build long-term resilience within our local economy by settling for 20%.

We need investment partnerships that will substantively enhance capacity and confidence within our local investor community. This is why the UPND is keen to reinvigorate the capacity of our local banking system to fully respond to this strategy by reposition the balance of resources away from government control and much towards individuals, households and SMEs.

As citizens, we must never underplay the value of sound political LEADERSHIP.

Everything rises and falls on it.

Future opportunities for the next generation of Zambians firmly rest on what we will do at the ballot in 2021.

  1. Keep on dreaming. We Zambians know the Under 5 Hakainde for the cheap charlatan that he is.
    He took Zambia’s money from the mines to Panama.
    He wants to impose the ALN liberal gay agenda on Zambians.

    • Continue hallucinating Anthony Bwalya UPND member….2021 you will still be in opposition….keep on day dreaming….You telling HH has a bigger begging bowl than Lungu….they’re all beggers anyway….but the fact is UPND will never form Government…invited to some useless African begging forum in DC and you think you can change Government

    • HH will have to be clear on his proposals for Zambia. He will have to tell us how he is going to handle the 18 billion dollars debt and how he is going to balance the budget and when. He will have to also tell us how he is going to deal with unemployment ; 45 000 teachers are still awaiting posting. Importantly, he will need to convince Zambia his party is not just another MMD turned PF, turned UPND. That how you win elections in the West.

    • Iwe chi siru. Have you got anything else to say apart from the nonsense you always speak. Even your record is old now and you are getting expired and we are bored with your nonsense. It’s because of chikopos like you our country has gone backwards. The bad news is there are plenty of f***ers like you. The good news is majority of zambians are not fontini like you. They are patient and peaceful but once you try and dribble them, they will rise up and vote you out and no tricks will stop them. People are fed up. We are struggling with life and the last thing we want to hear is people like you. So crawl back in your hole.

    • Usual brainless bickering by the die PF camp. Update: Zesco increases load shedding. What are the indicators of a failed govt oh dear PF die hards? Waiting for the kwacha to get so inflated that we start buying bread with a bag full of hundreds? Oh the price of mealie is already inflated. More is coming. Enjoy your national day of prayer by the way. While you spend the whole day crying for a miracle, we the UPND are busy working hard trying to be one. I said my grace this morning. Seleni tubombeko!

    • Does anyone know how to debate issues affecting governance and state of the Zambian economy, let alone what traits a leader should possess? Commentary is partisan just as are the insults which add no value to discourse leaving me to wonder what a suffering people need so they become effective in communicating to the leaders and share views logically among themselves!

  2. Hoping for a change of government in 2021? Quite laughable. For your own info, no opposition appears to offer something better than what PF is offering. Zambians will not fall for proud, self-centred and proven non God-fearing people to ever rule Zambia. God help is.

    • What is the PF offering or you choose not to listen.
      – A shrinking economy in GDP terms from 2011 to date talk about a fall from 8% to 1.8%.
      – National debt from zero to $20 billion in 8 years.
      – sky high corruption

      And the common man problems
      – mealie meal from 45 kwacha to 150 kwacha.
      – 13 hours load shading
      – 80 % Unemployment

  5. Like Michael Sata, this man has been harassed and put in prison several times. Most Zambians are cowards and would have been broken and have given up by now. Sata was put in prison – accused of a non-bailable offence of motor theft. But he fought it and came stronger. HH was accused of treason. Likewise, he came out stronger. He, Kambwili and the like of Pilato and a few others are the only ones articulating the plight of our country. Most of us are cowards!!!! Lungu will be a disaster in 2021. Wake up and smell the coffee!!!

    • Comparing SATA to HH is like comparing oranges to lemons. I meant to say comparing REALITY with HALLUCINATIONS.

  6. Iam amazed at how sone zambians can rubbish anything from HH without due thought process. Is tribalism in zambia so deep that it erodes the capacity to think rationally without thinking. How on earth can a normal society compare HH to Lungu. HH is way ahead of this clown you have as president. How can a normal zambian still think HH stole from privatization? Pure insane. Zambia’s future depends on how you vote in 2021. Choose prosperity with HH or perpetual poverty with Lungu. The choice is yours.

    • The writing is clear that HH is no right alternative. So many things we have seen and known about his calibre. Due to his lack of patience, a lot has been exposed about his hidden devilish agenda. God be praised!! We are yet to learn more.

ECL is not God and nobody knows the future. Let us be objective and pragmatic how we talk about politics in our country. What is clear though is that most Zambians are fed up with anything PF. A new Zambia is on the horizon through the mighty UPND. All these kaponyas of ministers will face the wrath of the law, and they (PF scumbags) know it…

  9. Its quite interesting how people compare HH’s current circumstances to Sata’s circumstances then. Remember that HH failed to work with the great Sata and the coalition fell apart. HH, apparently was called an under 5. Unfortunately he still behaves the same way. He has a lot of growing to do.

    13

    • Brother, it’s because of your ‘great sata our country is in shambles today. We can really see with proof who was the under 5 but with a big mouth. Being a president doesnt mean you have to be a comedian. You have to be serious because 15 million Zambians depend on you and as you can see from the result there was only 1 under 5.

  12. 2021 is very near. Can UPND give us a clear programme of how they are going to create jobs, build airports, build roads, build schools and hospitals, what will be the salary ranges of civil servants, how they are going to reduce lending rates in banks, how they are going to end load-shedding of electricity, how proceeds of copper sales will come back to Zambia, how they will end corruption, how they are going to put piped water in compounds and villages. This should be clearly stated with timelines between 2021 and 2026. Since as far as UPND is concerned everything PF is doing is useless or is wrong. UPND should give the nation their plan before 2021 so that people can make a decision whether to change or continue with PF.

    • At the moment the standards have been set so low by pf that common sense says we need to change to the next popular party. If not than we go the zimbabwean way. We have no choice. Either you jump in a fire or a pan but it’s still better than being in a furnace. Left with little choice.

  17. Hod on! Perhaps, would be more precise. It is wrong to misrepresent personal opinion as factual information. Change of Government could well be the panacea to the country’s problems. Who knows? Each voter will call a spade a spade and each voter will tell the truth and shame the devil. In my view, it is too early to envisage a regime change in the country because time can bring surprises. If there is abundant rainfall and farmers are happy, then chances are that the pull of regime change could be too weak to achieve regime change. At the same time, when the country increases load-shading further and further, then voters with industries along the line of rail could be disenchanted and vote for an alternative political party. Any political party must judged on the ground by the voters…

They know that the day you take over the kwacha will pick, bunga will come down after a short time. No more miracle 48 houses. No more loadshedding forever. No more killing of Zambians by pf thugs at will. HH, be assured that genuine Christians, genuine zambians will take you to state house. Not thiefs, not those ridding on ethnicity. Ignore their rantings. They are like dogs who buck at the car but cant stop it. GOD alone will redeem zambia from this mess. This is our prayer.

  24. Its laughable to see how shallow and desperate some twits in UPND could be. To be invited to a discussion forum like one attended by HH doesn’t mean anything, its a well thought out strategy by imperialists to see who is weak in Africa and who they can easily manipulate to grow their businesses. In case you are in doubt, just go and research on how the American investors treat people over their little money. Americans only invest in areas where thy have hidden agenda and its NOT rosy as they potray it. Besides, pledges mean nothing. You remember during MMD time, Americans came to cheat us on investment and to date nothing has materilised. Today, America is struggling, forget what you see on TV, thats sensored. HH has more respect for the whites than fellow citizens, and this is an insult.

Ladies and gents, have you ever seen it? Akainde, dont compare yourself to SATA. Sata was a politician. Not a tribalist, a freemason, never attended guy meetings anywhere, never chased people they way hh did in namwala, the list goes on showing the defference between the two. The guy is still under five. Will loose again in 2021 for the 6th time

Its this misplaced thinking and ideologies that are flawed You cannot be advancing polarization politics always as we have observed and campaign your country abroad thinking you are making progress.Those at the center understand very well politics of politicization and not based on common ideological thinking,nationalism, compatibility and ability to work with others nationally and outside without any difficult.Developing the sector across the country without any polarity The median average Zambia voter will chose Lungu over HH for 2021 chiefly because of this Its known and confirmed even there that Lungu will win 2012

As long as UPND continues projecting HH as Zambia’s messiah then they must as well forget about 2021 victory.HH’s UPND have been making this mistake since 2006!!HH has been in thousands of meetings with foreigners,signs deals with them and the more he does that,the more Zambians reject UPND!!!$25 Billion propaganda shall just irritate voters even more!!Nobody can remember Mr Sata meeting strange foreigners across the World who dont even vote in Zambia,instead Mr Sata sold his manifesto to locals here who believed him and voted for him in 2011.As for HH’s UPND its propaganda after propaganda-shocking stuff!!!Continue dreaming bo UPND but always remember that your HH has never won in 6.5 provinces since 2006 and he has to break that terrible record in 2021 against MIGHTY PF!!!

  33. There are not talking about tribalism Its how the other party is structured”polarized” to have any meaningful votes above electrol equilibrium

    Even where he went they understand very well his positioning and reasons why he cannot win the election in 2021 using tactics of polization including use of cadres and gun polization strategies INFACT they reduce than add a votes to the other poitical parties than work for him

    Its not therefore that he will win 2021 according to this based on empirical evidence and fundamentals

  34. In fact these foreign trips are a minus to HH because his opponents start informing the general public that HH meets his sponsors who will demand for our minerals if Kainde wins in 2021 (God forbid),they also say he is signing gay rights,satan1sm deals,etc!!!I pity HH’s advisors because they have completely failed to manage this self-centred under 5 politicians!!HH has a huge battle in 6.5 provinces where majority voters do not associate themselves with a politician who cannot campaign in their local language(i.e;bemba,chewa,nsenga,etc)!!!Soon they will be by elections in Luapula and Northern and you will see how terrible UPND candidates will be hummered by PF!!!Anyway dreaming is free,so dream on Habwalya!!

  35. “The recent invitation of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), to speak at the Woodrow Wilson Center and address an audience of esteemed leaders from the world of politics and business, is a clear demonstration of the confidence and the highest premium the international community continues to place on his ability to provide leadership at the highest level of government.”.

    What the “international community” does not know is that back home their sweet boy is deeply shrouded in triblism. Which is why Zambians don’t vote for him no matter what those at Woodrow Wilson Centre or at ALN say or do.

  39. Its also a fact that after 2021 Lungu re-elections and in 2026 Another Globally and Nationally accepted leader among st the current crop of leadership will takeover PF and be voted One Popular party of national character will emerge in 2021 and take over some seats from UPND and will emerge stronger in 2026 elections to consolidate 2031

    So HH is not and has never been in focus even at wilson centre that understands elections of Polarity and longevity of them A change of leadership at the helm of UPND will preserve the party for long-term may be mbabala or choma or monze but not with Mazabuka exhibits same charecteristics and could be a reject

    That is the story

  40. PF government have tried with poverty alleviation programs in some communities. They deserve an applause.:road building and rehabilitation, schools, healthy facilities security etc but there are still inadequacies in many social and economic matters.poor handling of professionals in all government departments: appointments:ill-trained personnel(political cadres) to senior government positions ,nepotism, , Injustice in workplaces , poor conditions of service for civil and public service and absent of capacity building programs for communities in economic and social sectors relevant to see the nation graduate from traditional economy to other stages of economic and social developments.

Unfortunately we do not have any leader right now including those in government offering tangible workable solutions to the crisis Zambia is going through. The consequences of an action whether good or bad is borne by he who makes the choice or decision. Why do we complain when we chose PF?, why do we complain when we failing to make or hold leaders accountable. Those who remain neutral only encourage the weak to be oppressed more and those who remain silent only encourage evil to seem powerful. The government is not a problem because if it was people would have sorted it out by now. Ultimately we the people are the downfall of Zambia because we allow what these politicians say to…

  45. If God were to put His blessings for Zambia in Tonga You cannot claim to love God whom you have not seen and yet you hate your brother or sister because they are Tonga as if Tonga is a disease!
    Here is a man who in one trip to the states is able to unlock resources to take our country forward but because he is Tonga, we cannot accept the genius in him! Do we surely think he is the one to suffer if not elected in 2021? I have asked many people why they have problems with an HH candidacy for the highest office and most do not have first hand information about the man. Most hate him because they have been told by someone else how they don’t like him. Well, unjustifiable hate blinds! We are a democracy. You can reject someone without character assassinating them. It’s your choice! Thank…

  46. Thank God Dangote is not a Zambian because he would have been demonized for setting up industries in foreign countries! Zambians hate wealthy individuals it seems! We are missing out as a country on blessings God has hidden in every tribe! If we are truly Christians, we must repent of this Tribalism!

  47. The Israelites become free in Egypt after God allowed death to strike the Egyptians children. Innocent children, old people are dying of hunger because of corruption. So if you are against the leadership of a Moses death is waiting for you.
    You will be swallowed. We prayed today and that was our prayer point. Let it clean

  48. Taking into account the international political landscape that is being paved by Donald Trump and his newly captured surrogate Boris Johnson, the destiny of Zambia will NEVER depend on international good will from the western world. Zambia’s destiny depends on developing agriculture to feed and clothe its peoples; developing credible education systems to university levels so as to propel technological development; develop good health facilities for all Zambians; and develop a diversity of power-generations infrastructures (hydro- and solar) to drive various sectors of our economy. If Trump can despise Barack Obama, who is Hakaimbe in the racial heart of Donald Trump?

  51. Mr Anthony Bwalya – UPND Member.
    A word of caution. You are trying to sell the Party and it’s President but for the discerning crowd you are actually de-campaigning both. The general narrative in public domain, albeit ignorantly, is that HH sold the mines and got rich; that he is sponsored by western investors (Anglo) in exchange for favorable consideration to loot the country’s resources once installed as president. His affiliation to organizations such as the Free Masons and LGBT sympathisers (ALC) not withstanding. I therefore find you naive to brazenly be telling the nation of HH’s attendance of the Woodrow Wilson Centro gathering and that pledges were made to bring $25bn into our comatose economy. People will only conclude that he is auctioning our country! Further, only the…

  52. …gullible can dare to dream of westerners pumping in $25bn into our country. Remember, the entire Dark Continent has only been give $60bn by China. The westerners will not trust their bounty with any civil servant or professional judging by what you have told them – corruption, theft and the vice! The kapokos and Chimeses will still be in service only in a different shape and form!
    By the way, why aren’t you writing in collusion with your party media team? is it that you have no regard for their input or you also think you know better and should be the party’s or HH’s mouthpiece? watch your bacvk within your party ranks….

  53. WE WERE SLOWLY BEGINNING TO THINK TWICE TO SAY MAYBE HH CAN BE THE ALTERNATIVE IN 2021.

    BUT IT SEEMS GOD NEVER INTENDED HH TO BE PRESIDENT.

    WATCHING PRIME TV NEWS LAST EVENING, WE WERE SHOCKED TO HEAR THAT: UPND IS A MEMBER OF THE AFRICA LIBERAL NETWORK, AN ORGANIZATION WHICH PROTECTS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, MINORITY RIGHTS INCLUDING THE LESBIANS AND GAYS.

    NOW, CAN SOMEONE EDUCATE US PLEASE. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE WITH WHAT THE PF HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT HH IS FOR HOMOSEXUALS?

    SO EVEN WITHOUT LOOKING AT OTHER ISSUES, JUST THIS HOMOSEXUAL ISSUE WILL BE ENOUGH TO KNOCK OUT HH FROM ENTERING STATEHOUSE.

    BETTER A DISH WITH HERBS AMIDST FREEDOM WHERE THERE IS LOVE TO MARRY OUR SWEET WOMEN THAN A BANQUET OF BEEF AMONG HOMOSEXUALS.

  54. Akainde is a rookie crook who will fall fall for anything promising him to gain access to state House. Woodrow Wilson is a former US President who was pro gay rights and center has not abandoned that path. He just from another meeting in Italy organized by the infamous ALN fir their gay rights agenda. UPND useless cadres don’t see anything wrong with Akainde’s moves as long as they are assured of jobs as portrayed in the Mumpanshya Commission of Inquiry Report.

  55. YOU MUST BE DREAMING! SO YOU THINK YOUR HH IS A BETER OPTION FOR ZAMBIA. DONT EVEN TRY IT, TONGAS ARE WORSE THIEVES AND BIG TRIBALISTS! HH IS A KNOWN PRIVATIZATION THIEF DONT EVEN THINK OF HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE A CROOK, BUT VERY DULL AS WELL! I WAS SURPRISED THAT HE DOESN’T KNOW THAT ZAMBIA IS OPERATING A DE-CENTRALIZED SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT FOR HIM TO GO ON AIR AND TELL THE NATION THAT THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD PAY COUNCIL WORKERS! THAT SOUNDS VERY DULL FOR ONE ASPIRING FOR THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND! HE SHOULD BE FINDING TIME TO READ GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS FOR HIM TO UNDERSTAND HOW GOVERNMENT OPERATES! SO MR. UPND MAN FORGET ABOUT YOUR KNOWN THIEF BECOMING PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA IN 2021!
