Passport to Lie Cancelled: HH the Boy who Cried “WOLF” Told off by his Fed up Online Followers

THE PARABLE OF THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF

‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’ is one of the most famous fables of all time.

The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his town’s flock. When a wolf actually does appear and the boy again calls for help, the villagers believe that it is another false alarm and the sheep are eaten by the wolf.

HH THE KACHEMA WHO CRIED WOLF

Going by the heavy sjambok-like whipping and telling off Bo HH has recently received from his facebook followers, particularly after his recent false “wolf cry “about passport fees being hiked, it is clear that many Zambians, including many of his party faithful and ethnic zealots, have become loathe to the predictability, deceptiveness and emptiness of his “wolf” cries.

One of the posts put his penchant for false alarms in context:

You lied that ZAFFICO had been sold; lied that the airport had been sold; lied that you have evidence about the owner of the 48 houses and dramatically pretended to take evidence to ACC.

She continued:

“Just accept that you’re a chronic liar, you should be ashamed that a man of your standing in society should be spreading such falsehoods. Enough of the lies!”

But it is the unrepentant snobbish nature of a conceited HH that annoyed more than a few:

“There is no harm in saying sorry for spreading lies. You are not human enough learn to accept responsibility when you’re wrong. What kind of a president will you be?”

A METAMORPHOSIS OF MALICE

When bo HH entered the political arena some 14 years ago, he introduced himself as a champion of “clean politics” and he vowed to stay clear of lies and insults.

So what happened?

2006

After his first election defeat of 2006, his appetite for power began to grow after taking third place with 25% of the vote, having manipulated his way to lead the UDA alliance, ahead of more seasoned alliance partners like Edith Nawakwi. He snivelled and sobbed “wolf”, to the top, even though he was still in his political diapers and very wet behind the ears.

2008

By the time he lost again in 2008, he had shed off his “Mr Nice Guy Politics” image and he began to play dirty by dabbling into “white lies”.

Zambians had by now began to take particular note of his sour faced demeanour and permanently irritable tone.

The silhouette of the man’s shadowy tribal rise to be the president of UPND became more defined. As his tribalist profile rose…his vote shrank and he could barely manage 19%.

2011

The 2011 defeat was particularly humiliating for Bo HH. Old man Michael Sata his erstwhile, albeit fleeting alliance partner was elected Head of State. Bo HH did not even manage “the best loser” award in this election. He came a very distant third.

My traditional cousin the “Monze bull” developed sour grapes against the Cobra and his party.

His entire being became a deadly dough of disparagement; puffed up by a leavened mixture of anger, bitterness, envy, pride and melancholy.  Out of the oven offence came a noxiously baked psyche that drives Mr Hakainde Hichilema as we know him today.

2014 & 2016

Ever since ECL the King Cobra’s down-to-earth protégé from Chimwemwe via Chawama trounced him in the 2014 and 2016 elections, my cousin’s noxious psyche has regressed to a freaky pathological state.

He has graduated from white lies and has become a pathological liar.

TOWARDS 2021: A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR UNRAVELS

A pathological liar tells lies, half-truths and stories that fall somewhere between conscious lying and delusion. Tragically, they often believe their own lying cries about “wolves”.

Along with being made the hero or victim in their stories, pathological liars tend to tell lies that seem to be geared at gaining admiration, sympathy, or acceptance by others.

Such is the tragedy of Bo HH and his false alarms regarding of Wolves of ZAFFICO, Wolves of ZNBC, Wolves of ZESCO, Wolves of corruption, Wolves of rigging, Wolves of 48 houses etc. The cries are aimed at gaining admiration, sympathy, and acceptance by Zambians and the international community (where he cries for Sanctions to be imposed on Zambia).

LYING AS A SURVIVAL MECHANISM

The man’s desperation is palpable and his angst near suicidal.
Why?
Because the stakes for 2021 are high; The outcome of the next elections may most likely bring down the curtains on his chequered political career.

LOSING ELECTIONS SIX TIMES NOT SHAMEFUL IN ITSELF; BUT PERMANENTLY LOSING YOUR MIND IS

Bo Hichilema doesn’t care about anything or anybody. He doesn’t care about the consequences, even if Zambia goes up in flames and remains rubble of ashes. He just wants State House and Contracts for his foreign gay business partners.

However, his followers were unanimous in their condemnation of his sadistic deception.

“You are one of the calamities Zambia has been facing. You rejoice when you hear bad news, we saw how you celebrated yesterday after hearing the news of fuel and electricity increments. Indeed you’re a big disappointment. Change for the better Mr Hichilema”

Another chimed in:

“Why are you happy when things are not right? And yet you want to lead the same country? This is not right.”

Yet another:

“HH boza too much. You say you are a patriotic citizen and only you can fix the country and that you’re the most educated economist, why can’t you help the sitting government so that we can see what you can do if you were voted into power?”

While there are definitely some seemingly useful things that once in a while proceed from his mouth, they come with a sting in the tail…a bitter aftertaste.

He does not give any piece of “advice” to help; but rather to make people look st*pid. My cousin has a complex. He thinks he has a patent on wisdom and that he is Heaven’s exclusive gift to Zambia. He doesn’t debate; he talks down on people. One just has to listen to his know-it-all condescending tone in his addresses. Even the traditional leaders in Tonga land except two or three are becoming frustrated with his disrespectful and patronising ways with them.

Humility never killed anyone. Bo HH mwa utwa?
After all, Monze Boy, we know you from your campus days in the 80’s. You were not bad; but you definitely weren’t the sharpest knife in the drawer…not by a long shot! No Siree! But that’s a topic for another day!

THE MORAL OF THE STORY

The moral of the Boy Who Cried Wolf is about credibility through honesty. When you are honest, people trust you. You can’t be a sour and dour deceptive alarmist for long. It is not sustainable.

But sadly for my cousin, he takes his falsehoods for a battle of attrition. Like Adolf Hitler’s propaganda methods, he figures that the more he falsely cries “wolf” the more the people will believe him.

Conversely, he doesn’t realise that the more he cries “wolf” at literally anything and everything progressing in the country particularly by the government, the more he loses credibility. Bo HH has become much like your local neighbourhood “Rover” “Bingo” or “Poppy” that woof-woofs its head off as it chases each and everything moving on tyres. After a while, nobody pays attention.

The moral stated at the end of the Greek version declares, “this shows how liars are rewarded: even if they tell the truth, no one believes them”. Considering the extent to which Hakainde’s lies have lost him credibility, No one will ever wholeheartedly believe him when by a miracle, he tells the truth.

Befittingly, in later English-language poetic versions of the fable, the wolf also ends up eating the boy!

Watch out Bo HH… kunatela kwa toho… (the truth of the matter) is that your own lies will gobble you up…and belch! Your passport to lie will be permanently cancelled!

  1. So what’s your point Sameta.
    Any solutions to the current economic climate in the country.
    This blame game is so childish if you have nothing to write just stay quite.
    As bemba’s say tondolo musuma.
    You sound stupid !!

    • We just a different leader in Zambia…lets do some serious soul searching and find a better candidate….Even any Zambian in the diaspora who is capable of leading Zambia should go back home and stand as an independent……not joining any Political Party…..you cant tell tell me that out of all the Zambians in diaspora we dont even have a capable leader who can help Zambia….Lungu has failed….we need an independent Candidate…and please no insults

    • How the demons howl at the prospect of judgement day! No, the Zambian people stand with hh—only thieves like you are ‘fed up’ because you know your fate….

    • …while proceed from his mouth, they come with a sting in the tail…a bitter aftertaste…
      Tongue flicking freak with a vicious venom bite puti wa puti.
      Lying in opposition might bleed an extremely lying Cabinet we aren’t geared to usher in.
      Strategy he promised, strategy of lies we have, more filthy double standard deceitful tantrums of an U5 political masquerad.
      At the helm of the upndead he is a perpetual loser who will stay put thus delay progressive hopefuls in his own grouping.
      Isn’t it better to leave him in his lying path so he can be beaten again? Or maybe his vile trajectory is both a danger to himself and to the nation. Misleading freak.

    • HH AND HIS COHORTS BELIEVE THAT THE MORE THEY LIE THE MORE SOME LIES WILL STICK!
      IT’S AN OLD TRICK USED EVEN BY THAT MASTER OF DECEPTION: ADOLF HITLER (AH).
      ONLY DIFFERENCE WE NOW HAVE HH.!

    • The hypocrisy in this article is beyond amazing.

      Have you not seen your own PF Facebook page?

      Not a single post goes by without 80% of the comments being against the theft and lies of the incumbent.

      Wasted years.

    • Verily verily I say unto you brethren Wilfred Sameta shall soon be appointed Zambia ‘s press attache in Berlin. Did I say press attache? No Zambias agriculture attache in Berlin where he will team up with Anthony Mukwita

    • @Mbuzi Sameta is a failed journalist who pretends to have retired. He uses what in rhetoric is called ad hominem (Latin for “to the person”), short for argumentum ad hominem, where a fallacious argumentative strategy is used to deflect meaningful discussion of the topic at hand by attacking the character, or being of the other person. These are the same people like Thorn in the butt, Zambian citizen and other zombies who cannot see any wrong with PF and they use their access to power and money to ram-rod their opinions on all of us. For them it matters less that we buy fuel at the highest price in the region and are experiencing the longest load shedding episodes in our history against a backdrop of unprecedented corruption, mendacity and kleptocracy. They are a type of people who hold…

  2. I’ve always told you that Hichilema isn’t as clever as he projects himself. His wealth isn’t by any means a mark of intelligence but a fulfillment of the Biblical fact that God gives anyone including those that don’t deserve

    • Not matter how much mudslinging they will engage in, blaming HH will not change the suffering that PF has put on the heads of the unsuspecting public.

      Now they want to erode HH’s support without offering solutions. Facts remain that PF=Corruption and they have to leave in 2021.

    • Ayatollah, that wealth was plundered from privatization when insider trading was used to undervalue going concerns and eventually sold to friends as well as proxies and acquiring huge shares.
      A commission of Inquiry will be best to settle this matter and the earlier it is done, the better.

    • Ohhhh kudos badala

      Where have you been ?

      Lungu and PF have been drenched in sh.it this past 2 weeks ….

      They needed your support not your taking cover

  3. How’s your article going to change the price of mealie meal, fuel, electricity and help create jobs for the Zambian people?

    • Vote for the lair Akainde at your own peril. Akainde’s presidency cannot last up to 8 months, going by the lies he concocts, in born tribalism (Read Mumpanshya Commission of Inquiry Report), Insolence by his followers of southern origin who are in the majority followed by Jokers like Nalumango and others.

  4. This “Central Province land tiller” is no other than Sondo Chanda – from the Chanda cr!me family.

    Anyways, he is fighting for his survival and that of his cr!me family – especially former ZamPost Boss, MacPherson Chanda. The moment the PF loses power, the Chandas will be belly up 🙁

    • Most worthwhile journalists are known before they retire. How come I have never heard of this Sameta until now. Anyway, considering the hallucinations in this article, I can as well conclude he is a fake one. He is making a mountain out of nothing just to exhibit his desperation to bring HH down.

  5. These cadres resurrect and are quick to post on such but will disappear when article is about lungu’s corruption. Leave hh alone, you koswes trying hard to distract us from your failures. Why doesn’t the writer offer solutions to our hunger, debt, energy and unemployment problems than attacking someone who is not in government. Keep quiet if you have no solutions to the issues affecting our citizens. I don’t know why LT keeps printing garbage from these individuals who would rather have a corrupt visionless leader messing up the country than someone who will fix the mess

  6. Kikikikiki…kuti waseka. Bo sameta is venting his anger & frustrations, of not being able to get a good harvest, on innocent people. Just come back to Lusaka Bo sameta and be a full time cadre. Farming teyabana wena muchaha..Kikikikiki

  7. #4 Charles, “How’s your article going to change the price of mealie meal, fuel, electricity and help create jobs for the Zambian people? ”

    That is not the purpose of the article base, are you literate? The article seeks to describe who trible HH is. By extension it also confirms what I repeatedly say that our leadership may be crap but Trible HH is certainly not the solution.
    Trust me, this time our Lord in Heaven will reveal to us a solution, a good leader. The charlatans can “pray” all they can but they will not get it, they can “donate” all they can but theirs is now a locked door.

    • Zambia is for HH just like Zambia is for you too. HH the last time I checked is Zambian and because he has a vision for this beautiful country, I will no matter what give him my vote this time around. We need no political prostitutes no recycled ones either. We need to change the way we think as a people if Zambia is to move forward.
      I repeat; no recycled politicians in the new government of HH and UPND. Dora can forget it no crossovers. ….mwanya ba PF.

  8. You opposition need to know that Even as you push the envelope and you are bold in your vision you also have to be rooted in reality, The average Zambian voter doesn’t think you have to completely tear down the system and remake it.

  9. He as never said something good apart from rejoicing when he sees that Zambian people are going thru hardship, what kind of a person is this one.He is using propaganda to win popularity.HH is a big liar and he will never rule Zambia come 2021 and I asure some of his supporters that this tonga bull will never rule this land.This land is for God and not Freemanson,gays,cults,satanists mmmmm walaaaa wanyala.

    • Muzadya infrastructure ba koswe

      Hehehehe

      Thorn, are you ok ?

      Chill man ,this is only politics, why are posting like a deranged drugged human today? Maybe your flight back to Zambia is imminent?

    • I am not the one who said that, bubblehead. Spellings are just grammartics-you got the point!! It seems hh is being broken down. His propaganda is slowly finding its counter- propaganda…

  10. There are no names of commentators quoted by Simeta? Issues raised by “anonymous” observers or commentators need not be taken seriously. In fact, I find it hard to understand why LT would allow the publication of such articles on its website, especially articles that are apparently designed to disparage any individual member or members of society. Why would any one who has a genuine criticism of a government, a political party, a political leader, a regular citizen, and/or an NGO find it necessary to post comments anonymously or under a pseudonym?

    • So Sunday Chanda AKA Simeta AKA Doctor Joze Manda following the blueprint of Russian bots hired a lot of these ‘commentators’ to throw shade at HH so that he could write this stup!d article to please simple-minded folk like Thorn and that Zambian Citizen dullard. Very predictable.

    • Boza yapeza Boza, mwami?? If that’s the case, PF are very clever to set up a counter propaganda system for the upnd social media lies they are spewing.

  11. What a waste !! The whole article based on half truth(Does the author live in Zambia) . Zambia has really gone to the d0gs with this mediocre thinking. No amount of propaganda will save Pathetic F00ls this time around.

    Hope and Help on the way !!!

  12. Foolish people will think,what this man has written about Hh is true.whatever Hh has truth in it.Do you know the agreement of Loans from China?eg building the airport s, roads etc.They come with a heavy price which these your leaders can’t reveal to you.Chines have taken over assets in many nation with their loans.eg Sil Lanka.Tanzania reversed many agreement of Loans with China by even saying those who accept loan conditions with China must be mad.Their conditions are so bad,
    Please don’t take this man serious,he is defending corrupt leaders.

  13. Problem with UPND followers thinks HH is equal to God. I say that because they have absolutely trust in hh.leadership is coming from God almighty.If God almighty want Lungu can win in 2021 with huge majority.nobody can stop God’s powers to manifest.
    HH’s followers don’t blind or comforting yourself.wait and see 2021 general elections results.
    Economy is bad as we see but hh will never be an answer to current upheavals because his politics is based on bitterness,tribalism,hatred and jealousy and there he has bad leadership qualities.

    • NO MUDALA ITS PF SUPPORTERS WHO THINK LUNGU IS A god. PF CAN NEVER ADMONISH THEIR LEADER FEARING THEY MIGHT LOSE THEIR POSITIONS. ALL THEY DO IS ACT LIKE RUBBER STAMPS TO WHATEVER LUNGU SAYS AND DOES. IF GOVERNMENT SCORES A LITTLE SUCCESS IT’S LUNGU HAS DONE THIS LUNGU HAS DONE THAT BUT WHEN THE OPPOSITE HAPPENS THEY BLAME HH, ACT OF NATURE, KALABA, KABWILI ETC.

    • Hehehehehe

      Thorn…..

      There is a 3 bedroom fully furnished house waiting for you in Zambia as promised by Hh when provide that evidence

      Hehehehehe

    • THORN YOU HAVE MINES WHICH YOUR GOVERNMENT IS FAILING TO RUN OWING TO THE FACT THAT THEY EMPLOYED A TEACHER BY PROFESSION TO MANAGE THE MINES. WHY GIVE STRATEGIC MINISTRIES TO LAZY PEOPLE? 10 YEARS AND PF WILL SILL FAIL TO DELIVER WHAT THEY PROMISED TO THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA.

  14. HH has no soul. He operates on remote and would be the most dangerous leader of our time. Look at what he has done to the UPND leadership? self-proclaimed chairman of UPND with challengers discarded like tissue papers when they beg to differ. HH owes a huge debt to his sponsors that’s why he will not give in at any cost. The creditors will pull the plug and all will be exposed.

  15. So here is the deal:
    Is HH a saint – No
    Is HH an angel – No
    Is HH A God – No
    Does HH believe that he is a saint – Certainly not
    Is HH a mere mortal with all the human failings and shortcomings – Yes, yes,yes and we love him the the human being that he is!!!

  16. UPND Cadres please there is no such a thing as a free meal .HH promises to Zambian people will not bring in any change,look at his team they will be worse than what we have.zambia needs prayers for a leader who will be truthful and tough on policies what we need are tough austerity measures.we are broke and someone preaching about relying on the outside world is a liar.we need to put our house in order first.His MPs walk out of parliament instead of fighting for there people they represent and busy collecting there allowances.zambians wake up we are doomed.we have no one to fight for us.insults and singing corruption will not get us out of the mess

    • NO MUDALA PRAYERS WITHOUT ACTION WONT WORK. MIRACLES DONT JUST DROP FROM HEAVEN MUDALA LIKE MANNA THESE DAYS. PF ARE THE ONES THAT LIED TO PEOPLE ABOUT HEAVEN ON EARTH BY BLESSING THEM WITH MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS AND EMPLOYMENT BUT NO SUCH THING TO THIS DATE HAS HAPPENED FOR THE PEOPLE AND SOON IT WILL BE TEN YEARS IN POWER BUT THE COUNTRY WILL BE WORSE THAT THEY FOUND IT.

  17. HH was actually right. The passport fees were increased but decision withdrawn because of timing and public outcry. It’s an fact and you Sameta are the embarrassing sadist

  18. He is the same Joze Manda as is the same Sunday Chanda if not they share the same office space…

    These PF rats are so du.ll that you can spot their sh.it from miles away

  19. Cults usually are one-man religions. A magnetic, dictatorial, dogmatic, demagogue draws throngs of followers and leads them into lala-land, sometimes dangerously.Jim Jones took 900 gullible adherents to cyanide suicide.David Koresh brought 70 Branch Davidians to fiery death.Shoko Asahara sent his Supreme Truth believers to plant nerve gas in Tokyo’s subway. HH ……….(finish the sentence)

  20. The author is the worst fo.ool in hell. He does not know whether to hide or expose himself for all to see. Bwana you will never protect the looting that everyone is seeing and feeling. Wolf wolf kwisa just pack and leave m******mwe!!!!
    We need a different thief like HH we are tired of one EL and his shameless thieving tactics. We need a new thief and in the interim have a breather!!!
    Disaster awaiting you mambala iwe!!!!

  21. The author is as blank as ever. I am not voting for anybody because I don’t think anybody has the capacity, though HH is the best amongst them all. The author ni chigamba

  22. Imagine HH calling for millions of dollars of aid to be given to the country to stop people from starving but here we have the same man who claims to be a villager with a lot of animals and money? Surely charity begins at home. Why can’t you plug the gap Chairman HH? You claim to be the richest man in Zambia, are you going to take your wealth to your grave? Oh, I forgot, you need to be president of Zambia first to answer those questions.

  23. Mr Sameta or whatever tell us why your ministry of health distributes condoms in prisons? How or with who do these male prisoners use the CONDOMS that this pf government gives them? HYPOCRITES OF THE WORST KIND, THE PHARISEES of our time. You say that prisoners are a special group and you give them condoms how special?

  24. HH = MINES THIEF + TRIBALIST + PANAMA PAPERS + PARTY DICTATOR + SIX TIME LOSER + ON PARTY CONGRESS + DULL PERSON + PATHOLOGICAL LIAR = NO STATE HOUSE
