I have never said or done anything against Chief Chitimukulu-HH

Headlines I have never said or done anything against Chief Chitimukulu-HH

United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has said that has never said or done anything against the Chitimukulu or the Bemba Royal Establishment.

Reacting to media reports that about Chief Chitimukulu snubbing his request to visit hi palace, Mr Hichilema said that when the Patriotic Front (PF) was harassing the Chitimukulu, President Edgar Lungu as Home Affairs Minister then, deployed hundreds of police officers to prevent his ascension to the throne, he stood by the Chitimukulu and rendered support to him and that history will absolve him on this matter.

Mr Hichilema further said that as a party has no intention nor capacity to interfere in the selection, continued reign nor removal of any traditional leadership in this country.

Below is the full statement

HH STATEMENT ON CHITIMUKULU

The United Party for National Development (UPND), outside or inside government, has no intention nor capacity to interfere in the selection, continued reign nor removal of any traditional leadership in this country.

We simply have no legal, moral desire or other basis to carry out such a mission. In as far as we are concerned, this is unattainable and well outside our cherished values, virtues and aspirations.

Our duty is to work with all traditional leaders (headmen, chiefs, paramount chiefs and others in the traditional hierarchy of our nation), and other stakeholders in fostering economic and social development to benefit all our citizens in the whole country regardless of ethnic, religious, political, and other affiliations or artificial boundaries.

For the record, I as Hakainde Hichilema, have never said or done anything against the Chitimukulu or the Bemba Royal Establishment.

As a matter of fact, when the Patriotic Front (PF) was harassing the Chitimukulu with Mr. Edgar Lungu as Home Affairs Minister deployed hundreds of police officers to prevent his ascension to the throne, I stood by the Chitimukulu and rendered support to him. History will absolve us on this matter.

As a country, we would rather use our time and focus discussion on more serious and pressing issues affecting our citizens such as finding solutions to the economic meltdown and the Covid 19 pandemic, as these do not spare anyone from whatever background or political affiliation.

We are aware of the desperation by some of our opponents who have no messages for the masses, other than driving hatred against fellow citizens. Zambians find these misplaced efforts to drive a wedge between citizens, tragic, retrogressive and a danger to national unity.

Within the context of our democratic dispensation, it is our duty to jealously guard the peace we have enjoyed as a country since independence, and focus on seeking unity than disunity, love than hate and honesty than unnecessary innuendos. There’s so much work to be done and we in the UPND are preoccupied with ways and means of how citizens can put food on their tables and send their children to school.

We believe that the above response should put to rest this unnecessary digression from critical national issues.

Hakainde Hichilema
UPND President

  1. Chitimukulu naisebanya sana. It will be easier for people to forgive HH for his chkkala slip of the tongue, than Chitimukulu to hate people because of Lukuku.
    Chitimukulu need apologize to God.

    • He is not ready to meet HH because of lukuku utterances, but ready to welcome mabumba’s colleagues. Is there sin greater than another, its like some sins are more sinful than others.

  2. Chitimukulu may find it tough to attend funerals of those 3 UPND officials Kampyongo has “sold” for slaughter. Aggravated robbery of a type writer and laminator by Micheleka? How can Mucheleka do robbery? Chitimukulu knows his grandson Patrick, how can he? From a distance people are saying Chitimukulu has sold his subjects just because they are UPND.
    Just recently a Barotseland activist died at Mukobeko over “treason”. But a ” wise” Chitimukulu is blind to see.

  3. How I wish the Mwene Lubemba, took the opportunity to meet and air his dislike of being called a misplaced and wrong chief. How you punish someone from the wrongs of a non party member. That’s wrong and unfair!!!

  5. Yes,HH, your record on this is very clean.How can a wise person blame for problems caused by your alliance partner,an adult you don’t control? You are on the rise,while they are on a decline.They have tried to throw this,that mud but it is all failing bcoz people are with you,HH.unfortunately the Chitimukulu has chosen to lose his birth right of commanding respect as a Chief,he is now a PF cadre!!

  6. There goes Under 5 and his blind supporters completely sidestepping the issue. Chitimukulu did not say Under 5 did anything. He said his political partners like Mucheleka and co disrespected his throne. An apology from him on behalf those people as their leader would have been enough.

  7. Uyu chikk.ala just by what & he has responded shows disrespect. For example, when pf cadres do violence people appeal to Lungu to control his people. Similarly the chief had expected this chikka.la to take control of his party members & his party chief & speak & stop their nonsense. This is all the chitimukulu said. Now chika.la goes & issues a political statement. Chika.la is not a leader. We can all see

  8. @Kawasaki-that’s hhs problem, he just thinks he’s smarter than every Zambian. You are spot on. Any normal leader wouldn’t have even allowed Mucheleka to utter such rubbish. But ka hh he keeps quiet and wants to sneak in and get a free publicity stunt with the Chitimukulu?? Oval headed twit!!!

  9. This current Chitimukulun has no shame! He’s childish! He is not worthy to be Chitimukulu. I’ve come to understand why our late President Sata didn’t want him!

  10. Mr HH the best you should have done was to quickly replaced lukuku as soon as he started issuing insulting messages on the media
    you are adding salt to the injury when you start to remind the public that the then minister of home affairs who is now president of zambia should have apologise because he sent the police to his palace to prevent his ascendance to the throne.
    who opposed the chief from being enthroned that time ,was it home affairs minister or the president at the time who was mr sata
    my brother HH please seek good council from credible people . am 100 percent sure that you were being misled by those characters like mucheleka who openly desrespect the paramount chief.
    you should have just replaced that lukuku boy and immediately distanced yourself as upnd and write a…

  11. Late President Sata was right to oppose this current chitimukulu…this guy is a divisive figure, a stooge of PF! Chief Mukuni speaks out on governance issues (corruption, Bill 10 etc). This Chitimukulu, being a compromised puppert of PF, only speaks out on “soft targets” like delayed farm inputs…sex education in issues… HH, don’t lose sleep over this fellow!

  12. When the late Micheal Sata refused to recognize him as Chitimukulu,he knew something about him.
    The guy is a well known RB and MMD cadre. He goes to the highest bidder.

  13. If HH associates with people who think that the current Chitimukulu is a wrong person for the throne, then HH agrees with this view. HH should have come out strongly to say that he did not agree with his associates.

    14
    12
  14. HH’s hands are clean.He supported Chitimukulu at the time of need but the Chief has forgotten HH’s support for the love of PF Money. History will judge Chitimukulu harshly for this betrayal. The writing is on the wall.

  15. Edgar Lungu as then Home Affairs Minister was working under instructions from Sata to deploy police officers to stop Chitimukulu from ascending to the Throne. I don’t trust this government. It is possible they bribed the Chief so he can stop HH from visiting his palace

  16. Uyu chi colour lee tall lay, His Royal Highness refusal to meet with you was because you failed to condemn your pack after they called him names. Kashimba Chimbwili however distanced himself from the madness.
    Why is it that you don’t give answers to the questions paused, you always give wrong answers. Hope you haven’t learned this from VJ because he also used to answer by pausing a question. Is it a culture issue or it’s one way of getting out of hot issues.

  17. This is how it works; when a son breaks the neighboor’s windows, its up to the father of that naught boy to apologize to the Neighboor.. UPND cadres have been insulting Shilbemba day-in-day-out. In politics these cadres could be described as ‘attack dogs’ whose owner is HH. Kambwili understands politics better than HH, so CK apologised to Mwinelubemba.

    So HH just apologise to Chitimukulu and all your sins will be washed away…

  18. WHO WAS HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER WHEN THIS CHIEF WAS BEING HARASSED? (GUY WHO STOLE FROM A WIDOW). WHO WAS MINISTER OF CHIEFS AND TRADITIONAL AFFAIRS WHEN THIS CHIEF WAS MADE TO STAY IN A SMALL HAT AND BEING HARASSED? LUO. BA CHIEF WOKE UP? YOUR PALACE HAS BEING TURNED INTO A POLITICAL ARENA. BEHAVE LIKE THE LITUNGASHIP.

  19. WHO WAS MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS WHEN THIS CHIEF WAS BEING HARASSED? (THE GUY WHO STOLE FROM A WIDOW). WHO WAS MINISTER OF CHIEFS AND TRADITIONAL AFFAIRS WHEN THIS CHIEF WAS MADE TO SQUAT IN A HUT? (K LUO). SAD THAT HIS PALACE IS BEING INTO A POLITICAL ARENA. I LIKE THE LITUNGASHIP.

  20. Yes Edgar Lungu was Minister of Home Affairs when Mr Sata refused to rekokonize Mwinelubemba. Even Mwinelubemba knows this. What a cheap and lunatic way of exonerating your filthy self. It was in Mwinelubemba’s Kingdom where you were insulting your opponents. In fact it was not President Lungu you insulted but Mwinelubemba.

  21. Is HH capable If apologizing if he is wrong? Or apologizing on behalf of his party? I have never heard him do that. He is always right.

  22. These dull chaps – the rule of thumb is “apologize first and explain later”. But in his dullness, he explaining first. Diverting your problem to others cannot be an escape strategy. ECL personally met the Chitimukulu and took corrective action after that installation fiasco – you cannot use that as an excuse because you do not have full details. Nawakwi accusations, you divert to Nawakwi and others being thieves instead of giving satisfactory answers. Chitimukulu complains, you divert to Edgar Lungu instead of just apologizing (even through an emissary). You even insult people in their language in their land and think it is funny. Now Chishimba Kambwili looks more seasoned – and your supporters are too dull to see this. 2021 will be very tough I tell you.

  23. The same UPND has NEVER condemned Chief Mukuni for refusing to meet ECL. At one of his ceremonies, he banned pf and the government officials to come and officiate at the ceremony, however, he allowed HH and UNPD wearing their Regalia. HH was even the main guest speaker. The funny part is that HH promised to solve their problems in two weeks especially the intercity bus terminal, Town Market. Since 2015 this is 2020 your guess is as good as mine. No upnd condemned Chief Mukuni for his actions.

  24. HH is one of the dumbest buffoons in African politics. Hh have you considered that maybe the issue is the fact that you did or said nothing? Your alliance criticised the chief and you kept quiet. Silence means consent. It’s like the whlte people being quiet when blacks are being racially targeted. To me that means you see nothing wrong with those actions. Real men stand up for what is right. You are not man enough hh. And you think you can rule? Silly boy

  25. LT, This is an old statement issued by HH in July.
    HH was responding to a series of articles that the Chitimukulu wrote back then.

    There’s even an article on LT based on this statement, published on 2020/07/27/

  26. You guys who shared same class with Hakainde Hichilema at Unza, tell me did this guy pass? He is failing to understand the simple language that Chief Chitimukulu has said. He did not say HH said something against him. Chief Chitimukulu said the spokesperson for the alliance, in the name of James Lukuku, is the one who uttered those bad words on behalf of the Alliance. The Chief went on to say that, to his amazement, Hichilema never disputed what his Alliance spokes person said. Implying he was in agreement. Is this difficult for a degree holder to understand? The Chief is not saying Hichilema said something bad to him. Not at all!

  27. Kaizar Zulu you are a completely confused person. And you think we should keep quiet when you are stealing from Zambians? Sosala is complicit in his support of a corrupt regime. You will be defeated in Lusaka and Copperbelt and you will wish you could get votes from Malawi.

    You are right. HH lacks wisdom. Even when non-southerners’ homes were torched and brutalized in Namwala in the wake of the 2016 dispute elections, he never bothered to condemn those behind this and show humanity to the victims. When deputies to late Anderson Mazoka were told they could not take over the leadership of UPND and were hounded out of the party by the membership of the party, HH never bothered to speak out against this and show humanity to Sakwiba Sikota, Bob Sichinga and Patrick Chisanga. When Patrick Mucheleka and Lukuku, whose party is in an alliance with UPND ,went on radio to say the current Chitimukulu was not the right person for the throne, HH as leader of the largest party in the alliance never spoke out against this and attempt to show humanity to the…

    … the Chitimukulu. Meanwhile, this same HH was expecting Kanyanta Sosala to welcome him at his place when Mucheleka and Lukuku failed to recognise him as the Chitimukulu. In what capacity then was HH expecting the Chitimukulu to welcome him at his palace? HH should grow up and stop to think as the egotist and narcisstic person that he is that the whole world revolves around him. He should learn to be more sensitive to the feelings of others. The Chitimukulu was hurt, like the non-Southerners brutalised in Namwala after the 2016 elections and Sakwiba Sikota, Bob Sichinga and Patrick Chisanga who were hounded of UPND, were. HH can never make a gook leader with his lack of sensitivity to the situation of others who may not be in the same position as himself. This is exactly what…

  30. I have failed to understand how Hichilema’s brain functions. Last time it was Nkosi ya ma Nkosi Mpezeni who snubbed him and the reason was that the former’s online media the Zambian Watchdog had been spreading false news that Mpezeni had died. If you don’t support what your associates are doing it’s better to state so than make such an empty denial. We’re not talking about the past. The UPND and its associates have shown so much contempt for Mwine Lubemba since Hichilema promoted Mucheleka to deputy SG. How did Kambwili distance himself from Lukuku’s statement when his position is the same as that of HH? It’s because he’s wiser than his friend. Like in the Mpezeni case Hichilema came out that he had never said anything against Mpezeni when it was known that he was the sponsor of…

    Tell lungu to update us on why PF were gassing our people ?????

    We will never forget the innocent civilians burned in our towns by fellow Zambians for the first time in our history under lungus watch……

  32. If chitimuku can allow Cadres and Lungu debating political diferences in his palace then one can agree with me that he (Chitimukulu) is a pure PF cadre whose roots are those smelling corruption.

  33. Spaka it seems everytime you have nothing worth saying you bring up the gassing. Sometimes its wise to remain silent when you have nothing worth saying or posting. Otherwise you end up looking like a k0l0k0mbwe

  34. The problem you have is umungulu defence as you are doing now. The Mwene Lubemba mentioned the reason why he could not see you..what you have done is to go round this issue instead of you telling off Mucheleka and your Alliance of evil so that they apologise to Mwene Lubemba. Alas, as usual you take a defensive stance. HH uli chinkula no wonder you can insult like that. For once humble yourself and apologize to the Mwene Lubemba mamba imwe.

  35. It is Chitimukulu who is petty and childish. He is just embarrassed for his behaviour. How can you blame HH for other people who have talked about him? Chitmimukulu must not be reactive and create a storm out of nothing. How has no big heart for a chief. Take HH out of bad behaviour of hating people. The way he behaves he can even kill HH

  36. HH is the most intelligent person to have ever come out of Southern Province. Unfortunately this most intelligent person prepares his own poison and drinks it, then blame Ediger Lungu for the out come. His best supporter being Chief Mukuni, how does one go to his neighbors house and insult them in their own language? We use the word Chik4l4 very selective in Bemba. I cannot address anyone by that term but only very close Pals. It is like the way black people use the N word in the US. What people cannot freely use the N word to a black person. I can not go to Southern province and use the C word on anyone without expecting a riot.

  37. All you talk about is right in your ways. My humble request to you is to be very observant 1) on reginalism 2) trbibal remarks. Let’s learn from rwanda , luannda, Somali etc. It all started like this.i beg of you.one Zambia one nation

  38. KWWF, chi lukuku is the spokesperson of an opposition alliance where HH is expected to be the presidential candidate of the said alliance. Lukuku speaks on behalf of the alliance. This is why kambwili was very clever and politically astitute to swiftly distance himself from lukuku’s statement which HH, The top dog, has failed to do.
    KWWF, you are the same people complaining why Zambians call HH tribal when it was ackson sejani who said who said only a Tonga can takeover UPND. The fact that he never distanced himself from that shocking statement shows that he approved. Up to today HH is paying the price for sejani’s leaking brain. KWWF, you’re the people that’s making HH’s dander head big for nothing.

  39. HH does not need Chief Chitimukulu in his successful life. Chitimukulu is a lost cause just like Sata saw fit. His people are in poverty as he eats from Lungu’s pocket. Paupers like Chitimukulu are a drag to nation development.

  40. HH… No need to PLEAD with a CADRE CHIEF……. Problem with HH is that he does not understand POLITICS , Chitimukulu is not relevant to the political equation . He has ZERO influence. SATA won the elections without CHITIMUKULU , A cadre CHIEF with 1 VOTE if at all he is registered as a voter.

  41. Chitimukulu is the factor in the bemba land , you insult him you insult all the bemba people therefore you cannot do anything in the bemba land without their king .
    To think that he means nothing are suicidal thoughts.

  42. HH always dodges issues and thinks everyone is dull to see through that. No one is saying you said or did anything wrong against the chief. The chief did not meet you because you minions disrespected him and you did nothing to correct them As usual you never come out to condemn your cadres and have never come clean on “only a Tonga” statement. Silence means you support the misdeeds of your supporters and associates.
