We are not against HH’s Donations, We Frown upon it being done outside established Channels

Columns We are not against HH's Donations, We Frown upon it being done...

By Sunday Chanda

It is extremely disappointing that Mr Hakainde Hichilema and his propaganda machine have chosen to twist our goodwill and honest advice to him.

There is a vernacular saying: “Lufwinyemba aliwa pa kantu” (Do not just believe it when someone tells you that he was unjustly condemned. Investigate him and you will find the truth/ facts).

Here are the facts:

1. THERE IS A WELL ESTABLISHED LAID DOWN PROCEDURE FOR DONATIONS WHICH EVERY LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL DONOR HAS BEEN FOLLOWING-WHY SHOULD HICHILEMA’S CASE BE AN EXCEPTION?

We have been against his idea of distributing anything like hand sanitizers directly to nationals. This is because all interventions are being coordinated by Government through Council of Ministers chaired by Her Honour the Vice President Madam Inonge Mutukwa Wina.

That is why we have been consistent in calling on the UPND leader, like others in society, to channel any donations to Government line ministries dealing with COVID-19 such as Ministries of health, local government, home Affairs, DMMU, etc.

Why should his “donations” be handled differently unless he has an ulterior motive?

2. THERE IS A LIMIT TO EVERYTHING; THIS IS NOT THE TIME FOR INSENSITIVE POLITICKING BY THE USUAL UPND FAKE NEWS SPECIALISTS

I have NEVER issued any remarks to the effect that “Hichilema wants to spread the COVID-19 virus through his donations”. (Unless of course UPND are inferring that they have such an intention).

Next time; we encourage him to use his self-acclaimed “wide network of well-wishers” to donate beyond hand sanitizers.

3. ISN’T THIS THE SAME HAKAINDE – THAT CALLED FOR A LOCKDOWN WHICH WAS CALCULATED AT INJURING THE COMMON MAN IN OUR COMPOUNDS?

Let it not be forgotten that the UPND leader is an “Ultracrepidarian” who:

a) Hurriedly gives his opinion- even on matters beyond his sphere of knowledge

b) Issues elitist calls for a “complete lockdown” from the comfort of his ultra-luxurious “mayadi” home and does not care about how the masses in our compounds who live hand to mouth would cope and does not care about how quick the Corona Virus would spread in compounds and High Density Areas as a result.

c) Indirectly wishes for mayhem and civil unrest that would potentially come out of a “complete lockdown” as a consequence of the acute hunger arising and over-crowding for food which would ultimately accelerate the spread of the Virus.

A MORAL CALL FOR CIVILITY AND UBUNTU

We ALL have ONE HEAD OF STATE and we ALL now have one common enemy-Covid 19. This matter transcends partisan politics.

Let us ALL therefore work together in an orderly and coordinated fashion under the able leadership of our Head of State His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and other established constitutional authorities. Mr Hichilema should resist the itch to make political capital out of the plague.

As we together escalate our efforts let us move in tandem as one unit. This is not the time for misplaced political agendas and forked tongues.

  1. This guy should stay quite at times. Nonsense after nonsense after nonsense.

    COVID-19 is too serious an issue to try to exploit political differences.

    Sunday is just hateful.

  3. A government minister, Kampyongo already said we welcome HH’s donations. Why then must this party representative try to find something wrong with it?
    For once, we in the diaspora (Malawi) were happy that our two political parties were getting along and working together.
    This was a very unnecessary statement by the PF media team.
    Fudging hell.

  5. Not a party issue but a govt one or did expect HH to donate to the PF party? But none of the donors hv given to the PF. Of course Sunday Chanda knows the difference but whn the project is to slowly build a totalitarian state, it doesn’t matter.

    Can this numskull sometimes learn to shut the funk up? Sit down and STFU!! Sometimes you gain more respect by actually not opening your mouth!

    Jeez what is wrong with this dude? We see these PF sycophants making direct donations all the time and this dude never calls for ‘coordinated’ approach to donations.

    Now is not the time for cheap politic, this virus is deadly and if HH can stop 1 or 2 person to person transmission through his donations, he should be commended for it.

    And why does he speak on behalf of government and President Lungu when he’s merely a PF cadre?

    This guy will d!e a sad, unhappy, insecure man. Unbelievable!

  8. Well said Sunday. Those with brains will understand what you are saying. hh cannot give anything to the people. Have you ever heard hh acknowledge ECL as President Lungu. In his simple mind he is the president of Zambia.Thats the devil we are dealing with. hh is worth that Covid19.

  9. If these leaders were to be put in charge of countries with huge populations like United States they would be overwhelmed. Allow others to help you carry the burden. Not everything should go through govt please! We are all mature

  10. Kampyongo welcomed HH’s donation in the expectation that this be would channeled through the DMMU as is the case with all other donations from other local and international donors. Strangely, HH wants doesn’t want to do it this way; it seems he wants to round the country giving the donations on his own.

  12. Please you people, if you have anything to help your neighbour, go ahead and donate, otherwise shut up. Did the pf follow established channels when they were bribing people in Chilubi? Sunday…what have you donated to anybody. I have at least bought the necessary items for my farm workers. HH has contributed to so many causes. What he is doing this time is telling leaders to donate. The las time he was on TV with a face mask, all hell broke loose, condenming him, dull people with so much hate missed the message he was sending. To day Chitalu and other ministers appear on TV with face masks….why not condenm them. Sick and tired of this hate towards one person out of 17 million people.

    15
  13. I have just viewed a video made by HH where he had a professional camera man recording his donation. I am lost for words. Do we really need to politicise a donation of more sanitizing products and soap. I personally think even for hh he can do better than this. Is it necessary to blow your own horn? Surely the media will come to you and report on your donation if it is worth reporting. It shows desperation to hire your own media to report you and take videos. You cannt be president with this type of childishness

  14. kaili futi HH knows that PF is a party of thieves.So why entrusting donations in the hands of Bakabwalala?The way you morons hate HH,aweh sure.And we call ourselves a christian nation,yaba.We are hell bound I tell you!!!!

    11
  15. But PF MPs have been donating out side your channels right during covid ,

    We all remember lusambo donating meal to hungry people out side your laid channels , no…….. ?

    13
  16. This guy is an ***** I wonder why such fools are given media slot!? Nothing good comes from his stinking mouth. Foolish man

  17. Sunday Chanda… Ulimbushi Sana,from the time companies started donating have distributed any, and also where is the money that was donated reconstruct city market? I wish the money that companies are contributing will be found in zanaco bank!

  18. Kaizar Zulu © , Chenda , BembaMan ,Sungwe ,The Patriot ,STRINGER = PAID LUNATIC SYCOPHANT CADRES…. It is very unfortunate for the motherland to have such in our midst… Its no wonder… I am free as an individual to donate anywhere i want. Its my effort. The same HH you are demonizing has already contacted Hon Kampyongo for a donation that will be channeled through the prisons. Now i wonder where DMMU comes in…

  19. What are you going to say when your president says we are going for a lockdown which is coming soon whether you like it or not. Are you going to praise HH then?

  20. As leader of the largest opposition in Zed, parading donations in the media is rather childish. By now, hh should have engaged GRZ and offered ideas and how the opposition in local govt. and at parliamentary level can contribute by consolidating the presidential directive. Nomba abakwasu bena, tuma box muli ka navara…Sunday is spot on!!

    • MPs from both opposition and ruling parties have been donating stuff during this covid period and we have seen various media showing them, why has it become a crime for him to be covered by the media? My friend get your navara as well go and donate after the covid update by the minister znbc will proudly display you too.

  21. We have been against his idea of distributing anything like hand sanitizers directly to nationals. This is because all interventions are being coordinated by Government through Council of Ministers chaired by Her Honour the Vice President Madam Inonge Mutukwa Wina.

    Am just imagining HH donating stuff to DMMU, then DMMU boss or any minister goes to distribute and tells the recipients of the donations that they are from the PF government, its normal practice for government workers on Zambia to refer to the government by first mentioning the party in power , that would be free campaign.

  22. Why is PF always scared of HH? Lusambo was donating staff just today. The Mayor of Lusaka was also destributing millie meal just today, and non of them opened his mouth. But when HH donates, all those with stinking mouths, stink up the place: what are you afraid of? Go and tell Lusambo to stop first, OK?

    11
  23. Seriously u guys have big issues no wonder the country can’t go forward, before u wer busy HH should donate, now that he has donate again it’s a problem. Grow up guy, this attitude is no help please for once again grow up.

  24. So HH should channel through govt so you can discriminate along party lines in dishing it out like you did drought relief food? Give it a rest Sunday. You goofed up and when your pay masters saw the backlash they decided not to back you up.

  25. The PF must just concentrate on Lungu’s health that’s clearly on the skids like Sata’s one before the tribally bigoted Mnwacusa kicked the bucket! Lungu’s TV address to the nation made one fact clear, the man isn’t very sick! He should vacate office because we are sick and tired of these bastards dying in office all the time! State House is now sure like the UTH departure lounge!

  26. HH cannot be trusted. He has very strong connections with the Brunthurst Foundation whose known evil agenda is to sponsor and cause instability to Kenya, Zambia and Zimbabwe to name a few targeted African States.
    POINTERS: Brunthurst specifically hired General Obasanjo for his links to military coups in West Africa, carefully recruited opposition leaders in SADC region as as conveyor belts for disturbances. Anglo-American were the worst investors in Zambia. JUST CONNECT THE DOTS and the truth will emerge. Government must reject this dirty money being channeled through HH. The Zambian Govt has everything under control to contain the virus.

  27. I have never been more disgusted with the likes of KZ, Zambian Citizen and their fellow sycophant Sunday Chanda as now. Even at a time like this when one chooses to act nobly from a national rather than partisan position, they still scrape the bottom of the barrel to find pathetic excused to criticise the same. Freedom of expression does not extend to mere insane irrational diatribes for your own selfish perverted aggrandizement. Grow up!

  28. Classic PF disgrace. Even in times of crisis they want to try and funnel everything so they can take credit for it. We all know that chunks of donated money and supplies slide into their pockets and never reach the people in need. Do they think the average Zambian is stupid and cannot see what they are doing to our country? God is watching you.

  29. Iwe Sunday Chanda, Kodi donation ya HH ni donation ya anyoko?
    What have you contributed personally?
    No one needs the permission of anybody to donate from personal resources! Do some growing up you MMD drop outs! You are messing up our country with your village politics!

  30. @ Kaizer Zulu
    Stop being an imposter and posting rubbish using other people’ identities. You keep doing this. You and Sunday Chanda must be sharing a father because you both have dwarf minds that make any sense out of any given situation. LT must also put in place a mechanism to stop this abuse

  31. HH IS A GREAT AND FEARFUL BY PF. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A TIME OR DAY HH NEVER MENSIONED BY PF LEADERSHIP. MY QN TO PF IS , DONT YOU FEEL BORED AND TIRED WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT HIM BUT HIM HH NEVER RETARIATES? WHO IS WISE HERE. IS IT HE SPEAKS LOUDLY WITH OR WHO KEEPS QUIETY? YES KEEP IT UP.

  32. Since when did Sunday chanda become our country’s spokesperson..we are tired of this guy..He is now speaking even on national matters
    Ba Sunday this is no time for cheap politics of the belly we need people talking from the brains as we fight covid 19 bcoz we appreciate anything that anyone can donate in this fight
    HH is far beyond your capacity.

  33. All the people that are criticizing HH’s donation are from outside the government. The minister of home affairs has welcomed HH’s donations and any who want to do so. HH has indicated to donate to the Inmates through the ministry of Home affairs. If one has nothing to give let him not conderm those that are doing it. Out of the abundancy of the heart the mouth speaks, those that are full of hate for HH will always speak hate, so we are not suprised. It also goes to say, ”Everyone is wise until he speaks, so what you speak no matter what position you hold tells us a story of who you are. Some of you even your children are ashamed of you when they read what you write. HH, you have the same rights as Jean Kapata who donated to markets and many others, so,” GO ON,
    THE PRISONS…

  34. This is not a time for politics let us unit against COVID 19. thanks Mr Sunday Chanda.

    This is not the time for PF OR UPND but its a time for Zambia to fight COVID 19.
