HH castigates President Lungu’s lopsided warning against gassing

Feature Politics HH castigates President Lungu's lopsided warning against gassing

UPND Leader Hakainde Hicgilema says President Edgar Lungu’s lopsided warning that they are closing in on the criminals alleged to be behind the gassing of people on one hand, while on the other offering huge sums of money to those with the information about these thugs, characterises the tragic irony with which the PF has been governing Zambia.

Mr Hichilema says veiled political threats to an already threatened citizenry accelerates uncertainty and fear.

The UPND Leader says this is a grave situation requiring a somber disposition than a wavering commitment.

He said the criminals must be brought to book and the suspects already in police custody must be thoroughly interrogated within the confines of the law, so that they can disclose the people masterminding these heinous crimes.

Mr Hichilema has however called on members of the public to refrain from acts of taking the law in their hands.

He said such behaviour is unhelpful and has potential to merely inflict injury, and even death on equally distressed citizens, who maybe completely innocent.

President Edgar Lungu yesterday warned those behind the gassing of innocent citizens in selected parts of the Country that their days are numbered.

“Whatever their motivation, we are closing in on you. We will find you and you will pay for your criminal activities.To all those daring me as President, you will have yourselves to blame when I act and no one will speak for you. You cannot injure society and expect to go free”, he said in a posting on his Facebook page.

President Lungu restated that there is K250,000 cash to anyone with any information on people behind this menace.

He assured Citizens that he will do everything it takes to protect them as that is his number one responsibility and has ordered the Zambia Army to move in immediately and control the gassing situation.

  3. The bounty is meant to collate pieces of evidence from suspects and then zero in on the suspects.Information is there about the suspect but you cant move in and make an arrest rest an outcry of political witch hunt.

  4. ECL’s statement is reassuring and I can’t understand how anyone can say that it deviates from a SOMBRE ( not SOMBER, unless you meant SOBER) disposition and is ” wavering”. Is this how much you dislike ECL HH? Is it so PERSONAL that it is clouding your judgement?
    Pity really.

  5. After getting down and acknowledging that Police and other investigations wings have been dire involved on the matter crude figures behind the scene are trying to voice up like they have command to quell gassing terrorism in the country. This is another hypnotic song of pretense when knowing it very well this evil on horror mountain.When the president said that what he said yesterday he has classified info. Which is well grinded like fine super milk for babies.I repeat it the President knows everything about gassing terrorism that is being sponsored by offsprings of the devil.Obviously gassing terrorists shall go on oblivion and hiding themselves but our local Scotland yards should get down to get information through these already apprehended villains.I mean government should not…

  6. Zambia had had three tactics used to bring civil unrest in the nation.(1) was the death of men( out of 6 victims 4 were covered in PF clothes) in the name of ritual killings.(2) was burning of public places (3) was gassing terrorism.All of these acts are derived from the same group disgruntled group of people.In all these case police have been on loosing side unless the military is involved.hh should keep mute on this case.mr bitter man.

  8. HH must emulate the wisdom of Mr. Kakoma in the manner the latter UPND leader provided credible advice to Govt on how to avert the spread of the Chinese epi-centered virus into Zambia. That is how responsible opposition leaders operate in civilised nations. But the mouthings of HH sound too childish. The current phenomenon of gasing school children and peoples homes is a great concern to all Zambians, including the Tongas. If this is the mental state that HH has attained due to obvious political frustrations, it will be logical for UPND to urgently search for a new leader because HH’s political prowess has expired.

  9. Like I said before they still have no idea what gas is being used and the IG says we are keeping it a secret for security reasons. There your secret has been revealed by ECL himself. Outsourcing police duties to the tune of K250000.

  10. HH knows that with that kind of cash offered his messengers will change camp and spill the beans. I steady of condemning the acts he has chosen the typical response offered by wizards when they are caught red handed bewitching people. So far HH has not inspired the majority of Zambians to rally behind him. If HH was a pop popular leader he would have been swimming in glories and praise from the majority of the electorate but alas his success will end on what is known as academic exercise.

  11. These people are foolish, what secret when people they will are not know how tomorrow will be in their lives because of the same chemical.

  13. We can’t pay our insane national debt, but the President will throw K250,000 towards catching people while his own police force has been too inept or corrupt to do so? If it wasn’t such a sad and worrying reflection of the slide this country is taking I would be laughing at this tragic comedy of disfunction.

  16. Useless Zambian police cadres, police know that PF is involved in this gassing thing how many people has been arrested over this gassing thing but up to now there still giving rewards for anyone with information which means those people who were arrested are innocent.
    Why still giving rewards when you said there people who were arrested with chemicals i don’t understand the whole thing here PF should come clean on this one and if there planing to wash this thing on HH it will be a very big mistake PF don’t try to bring war in Zambia this country is bigger than you guys keep our Zambia safe.
    PF trying by all means to stay in power by bringing confusion in the country we know your strategy very soon you will hear state of emergency then that will be it no one will talk and then they…

  17. We know your strategy very soon you will hear state of emergency then that will be it no one will talk and then they will control things the way they want.

  18. Please HH and UPND be careful and pray hard to God the way I see these people are planing to wash this thing on you but we are praying for God to confuse them in their camp please Zambians let’s pray hard we are under attack by the forces of evil only God can save us out of this situation.
    The problem is that PF are dead scared of HH some don’t even sleep there trying by all means to imprecate HH into a crime so that they can disqualify him to stand in 2021 and UPND should wake up from the sleep because you will be forced to look for another person who will lose to Lung that is the plan of PF when they say HH will never be President you think it’s a small thing these people are planing and working evil against HH.

  19. Could someone tell me, is daring ECL a crime for which he can lock up whoever has done it? This is a warning that ECL has the makings of another Robert Mugabe. This is a feeling of inadequacy and insecurity in the office he is holding.

  20. KZ,WHAT IS WRONG WITH HHS STATEMENT? UNLESS U TELLING US ABOUT JKS SONG WHEN PEOPLE ARE DYING AND STARVING. NO ONE WILL BOW TO YOUR PRESSURE. ARE U SIPPING WHISKY? KIKIKI, DRINK FOR NOW WHILE YOUR SHADOW IS FOLLOWING U

  21. Am really failing to understand this at list he has done his job of sending in the army for the rightfully job, that they are trained to do which is mataining order and peace in the country although he has done it a very sadly last minute when many innocent Zambians have lost their lives. but my other question is that why does the president have to put a bounty when he employs and pays shushoos ( Ops) this is their job to get the information for the president in Mr Keith Kaundas days this thing of bounty whatever never even use to happen, the shushoos or OPs use to do a tremendous job of getting information no matter how hidden it was and gave it to the president, before he could even address the national but honestly what’s really going on with the standards of work quality in…

  22. ATASE THERE IS A REASON WHY GOD ALLOWE ZAMBIA TO BE CALLED A CHRISTIAN NATION AND HE WILL NOT ALLOW WAR ON HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE HD CAN ALLOW TGEM TO BE TEMPTED BUT NOT HARMED SO AS ZAMBIANS EVEN IF WE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS TEMPTATIONS LETS BE AS STRONG AS JOB WAS BY NOT LOOSEING OUR FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD BECUSE I KNOW GOD CAN NEVER HARM HIS CHILDREN BY BRINGING WAR PN THEM.

  23. ATASE THERE IS A REASON WHY GOD ALLOWE ZAMBIA TO BE CALLED A CHRISTIAN NATION AND HE WILL NOT ALLOW WAR ON HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE HE CAN ALLOW TGEM TO BE TEMPTED BUT NOT HARMED SO AS ZAMBIANS EVEN IF WE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS TEMPTATIONS LETS BE AS STRONG AS JOB WAS BY NOT LOOSEING OUR FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD BECUSE I KNOW GOD CAN NEVER HARM HIS CHILDREN BY BRINGING WAR ON THEM.

  24. Our political leaders just talk talk talk even when they have no clue what they are talking about. For them now they have found some campaign material to throw at each other while the masses are suffering.. Do something tangible and we shall believe you. How can a whole bunch of trained security personnel be made to run around like headless chickens? You are not fighting Al Shabaab terrorists for God’s sake!
