We’ll Not Lock up Anyone to Block them from Participating in the 2021 Elections-Kampyongo

General News We'll Not Lock up Anyone to Block them from Participating...

Home Affairs Minister Mr. Stephen Kampyongo has described UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema as a liar who thrives on lying against Government and President Edgar Lungu

Mr. Kampyongo said that Mr. Hichilema should quit investing in propaganda to cover up his questionable track record and that the Ministry of Home Affairs and all its departments have no intention of killing him as he claims.

Mr Kampyongo, who is also Patriotic Front PF Member of the Central Committee, said that the ruling party will defeat Mr. Hichilema without any difficulties in the 2021 Presidential elections.

“He is just seeking sympathy by claiming that we want to arrest him. We have no time to waste on Hakainde who as far as we are concerned is a political nonentity who has lost elections 5 times,” he said.

“He is just guilty because he knows that Ms. Nawakwi is a well-respected person who knows a lot as she was a Minister of Finance at the time he participated in privatization, ” Mr. Kampyongo said.

The Minister said that the fact that no one is planning to arrest him at the moment, Mr. Hichilema should not begin to think he is above the law and can break it with impunity.

“It is not President Lungu’s interest to punish his political competitors. We will not lock up anyone in order to block him or her from participating in the 2021 elections,” Mr Kampyongo said when he featured on Kasama Radio yesterday.

He said those agitating to engage in lawlessness in defending Mr. Hichilema will face the full wrath of the law and.

“Let me warn all those UPND cadres to want to break the law with impunity in their misguided defense of their boss who has failed to account for his wealth, that they will be dealt with severely” Mr Kampyongo warned.

  1. Wht formal process has ever been started to make HH account for his wealth? HH is not running informal sector outfits where there’s no registration with PACRA and ZRA. As an individual and before venturing into business, he was employed in the formal sector and therefore subject to Zambian tax law. If this is not known, then Zambia is not a civilised place that doesn’t even keep basic records. Meanwhile we hv many people who hv become very rich since 2011. ECL himself has gone on record to say that some of his ministers hv millions of kwacha passing through their bank accounts. Don’t such people hv to account for their wealth? One simple truth is that a government job with its salary cannot make one rich.

  2. Whatever Kampyongo says the opposite is true. ECL and PF are desperate to block HH’s Name on the Ballot Paper in the 2021 Elections. There is clear evidence that ECL and PF would love to prevent HH from standing as a Presidential Candidate in 2021. ECL and PF hope to eliminate HH’s Candidacy thru Hook and Crook means.PF having messed the Economy has no Campaign message for 2021 except to tarnish the image of HH and UPND. ECL knows that he has lost popularity and cannot win the 2021 Elections without Election Rigging. ECL cannot meet the 50%+ 1 vote threshold so he has no choice but to rig the Election. PF knows that the Majority of Zambians want change and that change can only be delivered by HH and UPND in a free,fair and credible Election. The writing is on the wall.

    The only people who have not accounted for their wealth is you and your crooked boss Lungu. At least we know HH is a successful businessman who has been running business even under this regime that like to persecute and demonize him. It is a false narrative to insinuate that his wealth came from privatization when the guy held no position in government.
    And we know that the only way PF wins elections is through rigging and manipulation, colluding with ECZ and law enforcement agencies… like they have done in the last 2 presidential elections. You can only f00l your cadres, and not progressive minded free thinkers.

  4. Kampyongo do you remember Sata? He lost so many times but he eventually became the president of this country. You guys are having sleepless nights over HH…and you know very well that your days are numbered in government…why are we talking about privatization out of the blue???
    You will lose the election next year…and guess what? You guys will be investigated by real law enforcement not these people you have bought..,your time is coming brace your selves…
    PF must go…worst party of times…

  5. Actually what the PF and Lungu need to worry about is the current status of the economy..they don’t take things seriously the dollar will reach 25kwa in no time and then what they will still be talking about privatization?

    We need to know how Lungu got so rich on a 45000kwa monthly salary…we are not stupid…
    Please let us know, we have all the time.
    PF must Go. As they say in law enforcement follow the money.

  7. Kampyongo you still behave like someone working on the streets of Lusaka…intimidating people all the time, my my friend my apologies to you…You are nothing but a short round big face..when your PF thugs stormed the court of law in support of the so called health minister you were so quiet like a church mouse..now you are very active again because this involves HH….you are a waste of time BABA.
    PF must Go.

  8. Kapoyongo was a main player in the gassing of our people and the $1.6 million arms importation lies to have HH arrested and banned from politics ……

    He also was behind the fires that swept through Zambia to justify 42/42 ,

    We don’t trust anything that comes out of his mouth

  9. HH wasted an opportunity to shine. I really wished he challenged Nawakwi by phoning in the radio show to set the record straight. We can see why Sata called him under 5 because he likes to play victim when cornered. Zambians will not allow this PF government to arrest HH even if we found him guilty. As an aspiring leader of this nation, HH needs to account for his wealth in case there are further conflicts of interests. He may call it creative accounting to dribble the nation out of it’s resources but to the Zambian people such behavior is immoral and should never be allowed.

  10. Can’t wait for this party to leave power so that we can reclaim our country. Buying second hand vehicles when our relatives are dying in the hospitals for lack of medication.

  11. If HH was genuine we would not have been seeing the rage and hatred that he portrays now. If you give him the instruments of power we will have another Idi Amini the Zambian style. Anyone from any tribe can ascend to the highest position in Zambia. What we do not have is a quarter system for tribes. Any person from any tribe can lead this great nation provided they have a national character not just having some corner support. Harry Mwanga Nkumbula and Anderson Mazoka had national character but not this young man by the name of Hakainde, with the character aptly described by Edith and others (Canicius, GBM, Madebo etc.) it is difficult to trust him. Any other Tonga or anyone else from any tribe with a national character acceptable to the majority of the electorate will go to plot one.

  12. Our Zambian economy is in the intensive gasping for oxygen because of unchecked financial indiscpline and irresponsibility from from the top to the bottom of our clueless leaders .For instance ,how on earth can half of the government use a presidential jet to go to Saudi Arabia staying in the most expensive hotels and earning bus loads of tax payers cash in allowances .Lungu needs reminding that that trip to Saudi Arabia only yielded selfies and never benefited anyone apart from the people who went.

  13. No one has time or money to waste arresting people that are going to lose an election. Hh has lost five times. Not even sata lost that many times. So those comparing the two must be on some hard drugs. Hh has been allowed to contest elections and still lost them. The boy is a loser. He now claiming we want to kill him. Even on his hard talk interview he was laughed at for claiming the same. Hh acts like a disgruntled cow

  14. Btw to those wondering why I wasn’t at Lusaka July event, I don’t go to events attended by childish people who continue to act as mayor even when suspended. We leave such for big birds from sesame street. The only sensible people there was the future first female zambian president tasila. The rest kuwaya waya fye

  15. The attempt to fix him on privatization has evaporated and now scheming another one!

    We told you that he will fix you instead of you fixing him.

    Your time is up Kapyopyo and Piyefool!

    You and the PF are megouts.
    PF must go

  17. Whatever the Minister might says there is no guarantee that HH will not be arrested, imprisoned and removed from the 2021 Ballot Paper? In the past HH was imprisoned for 127 days without a charge. History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes. As we get to close to August 12,2021 desperate PF is capable of doing anything to HH.

  18. “It is not President Lungu’s interest to punish his political competitors. We will not lock up anyone in order to block him or her from participating in the 2021 elections,” Mr Kampyongo said when he featured on Kasama Radio yesterday.
    “He said those agitating to engage in lawlessness in defending Mr. Hichilema will face the full wrath of the law and.”

    WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? If you dont arrest their leader then there is NO REASON for the “full wrath of the law”. BTW, Kampyongo, we take your word based on the quote above, I hope we will NOT need to remind you and your PF surrogates.

  19. Whether ni HH or not for 2021 this crew MUST leave. This is where a replacement is sorely REQUIRED. Wonse imwe wa PF are an outgoing government. Talema koma.

  20. Kampyongo good to hear he won’t be arrested. Please allow him to move freely and talk to his branches. He is currently in prison while Lusambo is free. Can’t you see that? Allow him to go wherever he wants in Zambia like I do. In the last two months I have been to all 10 provinces in the country and no one complained.

  21. Ati…pf out going government…How by elections have been won by ba under5! Western province has shifted to pf. Leaving ba under5 with two provinces namely southern where people are beaten for choosing development hence they leave in fear and intimidation,2021 if you are 16years you will not vote like you did in Southern province and North Western.

  22. In April 2017 HH was locked up for 127 days. Since then PF Cadres have threatened to have HH locked again. Some PF Cadre have publicly stated that HH will be arrested and will be killed in Prison this time around. So there no guarantee that HH will not be arrested as we approach the August 12, 2021 Election date. HH has no basis to trust that the PF Govt will not arrest him again given his high popularity. The writing is on the wall.

  23. How can Mr. Kampyongo say that HH is a nonentity in the Zambian political arena? Does he correctly remember the difference in the votes President Lungu got in comparison to those of Mr HH? Hate HH if you wish, but the truth is that for now, he is the major challenger to Mr. Lungu’s Presidency.
    Why does it bother PF that Mr. HH has lost elections many times? As it stands, the Zambian Construction does not have time limit on the number of times that a person who has not yet ascended to the position of President can participate in General Elections. So HH can stand as many times as he wants and lose a many times, it is his choice.

  24. Have you asked Zambians about this issue you politicians must be very careful Zambia doesn’t belong to politicians , it is not not in your power to do that but Zambians at large, politicians make mistakes that affect Zambians in general.
    Politicians shouldn’t take people for a ride they should give us a break all we want is accountability with all who keep our assets if someone is found wanting it is not for politicians to decide because we know you are all the same and you the same evils.

  25. How can Mr. Kampyongo say that HH is a nonentity in the Zambian political arena? Does he correctly remember the difference in the votes President Lungu got in comparison to those of Mr HH? Hate HH if you wish, but the truth is that for now, he is the major challenger to Mr. Lungu’s Presidency.

So HH can stand as many times as he wants and lose a many times, it is his choice. Can we be objective for once?

  26. You PF fools have doomed the nation the economy is traah dollar is hitting k20 we are close to becoming the new zimzim, you are going out 2021, you have resurfaced at the end with bola bet empowerment programs o that time you were just eating now the time has come, whoever votes for PF come 2021 I will never give anyone money complaining ati life yakosa.
