1. Reference is made to a recent widely circulated media report wherein the undersigned was misquoted as having “challenged” the US Embassy to clarify UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s claims about “refusing sanctions” against Zambia.

2. The “report” was an unfortunate and sensational misrepresentation, of this author’s statement, because as far as we know, it would be untenable and indeed unthinkable to “challenge” the US Embassy in Zambia in this regard, as the organisation that invited Mr. Hichilema cannot speak on behalf of the US Federal Government.

3. However in terms of “challenging” and without downplaying the “sanctions” talk, we find it quite difficult to provide the sort of answers the media and other stakeholders are seeking, unless they can ask Mr. Hichilema himself or send their queries about “sanctions” to the US Embassy, as it is the only place where correct answers could be elicited.

4. The statement by the undersigned was therefore aimed at galvanising the media and other stakeholders such as the church and civil society, to “challenge” and interrogate among other things, how a seemingly innocuous private meeting discussing “investment” and other “business issues”, went on to discuss “sanctions against Zambia”- which HH “reportedly” “refused to support”. Why would an Opposition leader talk about sanctions that are non-existent?

  1. Interesting. Chanda issues a statement then deny the same statement. PF creates the short code 373 then PF denies the same. Why is PF quarreling with itself? Dola is right, PF i just fire fighting. We expect more fire trucks.

    • Saturday Chanda, there is no media or other church institution to galvanise here. You are thieves, fullu stopo. The international community take note of your prolific banditry hence the question of sanctions. Demonising HH will not save you, not even galvanising anyone. Just take responsibility, resign, step down because 2016 election was not free and fair because your ministers with instructions from ECL continued to campaign and draw salaries after parliament was dissolved. Stolen election and stolen public funds via exaggerated cost of road, fire engine, ambulances and airport projects.

    • In America there’s a saying that u campaign in poetry but u govern in prose. It simply means that during the heat and excitement of a campaign, u can get away with loose statements like ” more money in your pocket” without providing detail. But in govt, u hv to provide detail by explaining things. Sunday mwana, stay out of the glare of media publicity because your party is already in govt but it somehow behaves as if it is in opposition. Let Dora Siliya speak on govt policy issues. Your time will come whn the election season starts.

    • Sunday, did you see the PF Fire Trucks your PF first lady went to bring for you from the USA?
      Those Fire trucks will cost PF 1 million votes.
      Did you see how many PF cadres who went to inspect those fire engines? Who can’t put sanctions on such a government?

    It appears you are taking expired A.R.V’s & your Bongo is badly affected. That’s the fruits of your Corruption, hence your fellow P.F Mbava’s supplying pharmacies you use with expired Mushonga.

  3. Can you just SHUT that effing hole?
    I am stakeholder, same like you and I do resent your childish attempt to shift attention from PF criminal failures to manage Country, in to “loose” talk of Mr. HH abroad.

    Mr. Chanda CAN YOU EXPLAIN TO ZAMBIANS WHERE YOUR PARTY STANDS ON THE ISSUE OF GRAND CORRUPTION, THEFT OF NATURAL RESOURCES, LACK OF THE RULE OF LAW, INCOMPETENT/BIASED JUDICIARY, AG DEFENDING CRIMINAL ACTS OF THE CABINET MEMBERS BY HIDING BEHIND STATE SECRETS ACT, NON GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS USING GOVERNMENT ASSETS, NEVER ENDING CREEPING TAXATION AND RED TAPE, POLICE INCOMPETENCE AND UNWARRANTED BRUTALITY …………..

    THIS ARE SOME ISSUES PEOPLE ARE EAGERLY AWAITING TO BE CLARIFIED.

    PLEASE CLARIFY ALL ABOVE BEFORE MENTIONING Mr. HH AGAIN.

  4. The real question PF should be asking themselves is “what have we been doing for the international community to even contemplate sanctions?”

    HH is not the one pushing or even suggesting them, he actually saved millions of innocent Zambians from suffering the effects of sanctions against a corrupt clique of individuals who are clearly in denial about their activities.

  5. Empty tin again, please save us the space and consider bringing up real issues affecting the country. Do you always have meetings discussing how and what HH is doing? I have never seen such a a party in power consumed with emptiness and just busy trying to tarnish the image of an opposition leader instead working and discussing policies that help reduce the suffering of people. The chap is actually contradicting himself!

  11. If you see this PF high priest of hate speech Sunday Chanda backtracking on statements he issued yesterday, be sure it backfired big time. May be the embassy complained to statehouse and someone reprimanded him. He is not ministry of foreign affairs official, yet this over zealous PF carder has the audacity to dare the US embassy. That is PF dununa for you. No manners, abysmal ignorance, arrogance, lier, fool – all these describe this Chanda.

  12. Comment:hh will never mean well for Zambia, according to me, what he did in namwala to his fellow human beings in preference to his cows in the name of investor that means he can do anything evil as long as he will have money to himself.

  14. I always suspected Sunday Chanda to be a mental retard and his reaction to HH has just confirmed it, chikkala chinangwa! HH was asked his opinion about sanctions and he clearly said no, they will hurt ordinary Zambians more. So what does this baboon not understand about that? Eba kolwe ne nsoka mulelya ifilelenga ubunangwa mutulukobo twenu, ka tombolilo iwe!

    Oh please shut the f**k up and sit down!

    He’s not making sense: he’s accusing the media of misquoting him hence asking us not to believe the same media but he’s asking the same media to investigate the sanctions and he also wants us to believe the media for quoting HH. Apparently the media is only to be trusted if they report about HH discussing sanctions but we should not trust the same media of they report about Tuesday Chanda “challenging” the US embassy. What kind of reasoning is this?

  16. The problem with people who shun away from the National day of prayer and fasting are stubbon and this is how far they can think all the time. As Alangizi we are wondering that he has come back after the prayers, really? And instead of appreciating the First Lady for what she done, he is there critisizing the efforts being done. Does he have a company which makes vehicles so that he can donate? this man so called HH, is behaving like a rat which has seen a cat and runs away. Country men and women he ran away from prayers and after the prayers he is back on the scene and yapping nonsense. Shame and fire on him.

  18. Alangizi please stfu, you don’t force prayers that’s why people in Zambia are taken advantage of by these fake prophets. Have you gone to every prayer day announced by every Jim and jack no, you probably went to a few you liked so even HH has a right to choose where to go. He is not obligated to go to one just because you announced it. Please don’t insult us about The First Lady’s good deeds which turned us into a laughing stock. Her good deeds wasted more money I don’t even know why we even had to waste more money by bringing that scrap to Africa. Those things are not fuel efficient, you will spend more to run and maintained them. People are going months unpaid because your party is so wasteful instead of being cautious with our money

  19. PF leaders never cease to amaze me. Just listen to this:
    “Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa says he is currently keeping three cows at his newly built Leopards Hill road residence in order to save money from buying milk, given the tough economic times.”
    Just asking: Whats cheaper – buying milk at only K10 a litre or keeping the whole cow and feed it with feed worth K1,000 a day??? Just where do these guys collect their thinking from!!!! Kikikiki!!!!!
    Disaster!!!
