HH Only Option for Zambia

Share

Choolwe Chibomba Aspiring candidate for Mapatizya Constituency.

Hakainde Hichilema is the best option for Zambia going forward, says aspiring UPND candidate for Mapatizya constituency, Choolwe Chibomba. Speaking to Lusaka Times exclusively, Mr. Chibomba said that if you look at all the current Presidential candidates contesting, HH is the best qualified for the job.

“Zambia currently has a leadership crisis,” Chibomba said. “The ruling party has had ten years to show us what they are capable of, and they have failed us. It is time for change, and the answer to our problems right now is HH and the UPND.”

Chibomba said HH genuinely has a heart for the people, and is our only option if we want to restore order in our beloved country. He believes HH’s character and commitment to the people of Zambia are what will deliver him the Presidency come August 12, 2021.” Zambia needs a strong, resilient, and accountable leader – these are all qualities that Mr. Hichilema has demonstrated, and prove why he should be our next President.”

As the Election Day draws nearer, Chibomba says we must ask ourselves whether the last decade has truly reflected what we want our country to stand for and how we want to be represented. He says as Zambians, we have a number of questions to ask ourselves as we head to the polls, such as where the country is going and where we want it to end up. He also says Zambians must consider the kind of legacy we want to leave behind, and how we want the generations of Zambians in the future to remember us.

“We have seen what happens when leaders who are not compassionate are in power,” Chibomba said. “They abuse their privilege, and all of us collectively remain behind. Being a politician has become a gateway to personal enrichment, and is no longer about serving the millions of Zambians across the country. These are not the values our country was built on at Independence.”

Chibomba says voting the UPND into power is the “reset button” Zambia needs to get back on track. “Hakainde Hichilema is our only option if we want to see a better Zambia for all of us, not just those connected to the ruling party. He is the solution to both the leadership and economic crises our country faces.”

“On August 12, we have our chance to fix things, and go back to the country where we all got a chance to prosper. Let us make sure we do the right thing.”

Choolwe Chibomba is an aspiring candidate for the Parliamentary seat in Mapatizya constituency.

This guy must be either on drugs or he is a bootlicker because he has not given us any solutions that HH will bring on the table to turn around the economy or improve living standards.Apart from HH success story how he got rich from privatisation of state property what other businesses made him rich?

  7. Well spoken. Mr Choolwe Chibomba is spot on. For Zambia to shift its downward trajectory it needs to press a “Reset Button”. The only viable Option to take Zambia out of this mess is HH and UPND Alliance. Another 5 years with the corrupt and Visionless ECL and PF is unthinkable and will be a disaster for Zambia. After 10 years of PF Rule we can all see the Results. All Right thinking Zambians should vote for a change of Govt and that change is HH and UPND Alliance Govt. HH can be trusted to turnaround the Zambian Economy and improve the Governance. Re-election of ECL and PF amounts to Economic and Financial suicide for all Zambians. The writing is on the wall.

    FTJ CHILUBA DID THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT OF ANY PRESIDENT TO DATE
    AND THAT WAS TO ABOLISH EXCHANGE CONTROL

  9. How can one person be a solution to a country’s problems? This kind of mentality among the tongas is what has made HH never to enter state house. As for UPND we have a party that only started working on its manifesto now despite being in existence for over 20 years. Under PF we have new bridges, roads, new hydro electricity stations, farming inputs. These are what the people on the ground see. UPND needs to change their strategy if they want form governments. Coming up with slogans like Mwankole, Bally, watermelons is not going win votes. People want to know what you re going to do for them once elected.

  11. The only option for tribalists. Speak for yourself. You only have one vote and cannot speak on behalf of the reasonable millions of eligible voters.

  12. I feel HH hasnt got the urgency. He is too soft and has no political stamina. I do however think he has what it takes to be a president & stir the country in the right direction. I am just afraid that he may not make it again because he doesn’t know how to play politics. He plays office. Look at Obama, he had both characteristics.

  16. I just got my second stimulus package $2800. Money that I don’t need because I have a good job and business(trucking company) that brings in $7000 after expenses per WEEK and Kaizar Zulu will come here ati “you lost your citizenship after you got your blue passport “? Lol how much has corrupt Lungu sent you in this COVID times? Lungu and Kaizar, show us your birth certificates before you can come up with that nonsense. When I want to come to Zambia I will come with my birth certificate that shows I was born there in Mungule, let me see who will tell me I’m not Zambian and on what ground. You people are messed up in your heads. Ati you are not Zambian? Who the heck are you to tell me that.

  17. Let’s look at options available. We

  19. I was just turning 30 in 1990 when the so called “food riots” broke out over food prices in Zambia. The riots prompted President Kenneth Kaunda, to introduce plural politics and ushered in Fredrick Titus Chiluba as president of Zambia. But Chiluba turned out to be worse.
    Zambians don’t make similar mistake. Yes, our economy SEEMS to be in shambles but has the alternative got the solutions? Which economy in Africa is performing better than ours?

  20. Meanwhile PF has become the first very democratic party this year. Do all political parties hold primary elections like we have seen this year. We are yet to hear the rest do it. We don’t want rumours that x had y votes.

  21. Luapula Premier, has the incumbent got a plan and a vision for Zambia? The answer is NO, he doesn’t . Most economies are affected by COVID19 but Zambia’s economy was in very bad shape and has been mismanaged PF for almost 6 years even before COVID19 . SO don’t use covid19 as an excuse. We need fresh ideas, PF can work in opposition and see how others will manage the economy well.

  22. Let’s agree to disagree.

    UPND time out.

    PF time out.

    We need to take the bull by the horn.

    We need a new person with clear conscience not coming in with grudges. we are tired of your partisan politics gridlock, angering each other and your constituencies.

    There’s so many Zambians qualify to take us forward.

    That’s misconception to just think of PF and UPND.

    Anyone display images of themselves at Political caucuses, their disqualify Themselves, need someone who is going to display Zambian flag.

  23. Given another chance, HH will come and do a privatization reloaded. This one will be massive since he will be in full charge. There will be a lot of Hatembos around the country. Also people from the tribal grouping are already giving each positions in places like Zesco and government departments so that they take over when their ka god wins.

  24. Some of you may have seen the malicious article published by those dogs at zambian watchdog. Apparently I have a Russian wlfe and child. I think even a confused man would know that such an article is inaccurate and a bunch of lies. This is reason why we are introducing cyber bill. Zambia watch dog know that their days are numbered when this bill is enacted. So they are now trying to tarnish my name because I fought hard to bring this bill to the table. You won’t manage to bring me down. CIA 1

  25. Last year Hon Davis Mwila told president Edgar Lungu that Justice Minister Hon Given Lubinda is to blame for the fall of Bill 10 because he is Lozi and was paid by HH to comfort PF that it was going through when infact not.
    “Alitumpa sana ulya nalimumona kale imisango shakwe anya takaimonepo adoption nakabili, takwaba umuntu uwabufi nga Lubinda. Aba Lozi naba Tonga tebakuchetekela balimutemwa HH kwati katwishi efyo abalisha nganifinshi nshaishiba nebo” (He is very foolish that one I have been observing his moves for a while now, there is no person who is a liar like Hon Lubinda. These Lozis and Tongas are not people to trust they love HH like no man’s business as if he needs them I fail to understand)” said Hon Mwila at State House.

  28. Ati I fought hard to bring the bill to the table? You are not a law maker so quit trying to make yourself feel important. Who elected you to be a law makers? Lol, the lies Edgar is confusing you with is beyond common sense. You and your daddy Chagwa are useless and will head to the wire come August. You are finished.

  29. You don’t substitute a player who is scoring goals and bring in a novice who has never played or scored
    a goal before.
    In this present state the incumbent is still the right person to take Zambia in the right direction substituting him would be the biggest mistake, because any new comer will only be complaining that he has fund everything in a mess and would want more years before he can do anything.
    To be wise better to retain the same leader, those are my thoughts and no one will regret.

  30. WHICH AFRICAN COUNTRY HASN’T LOOTED AND ABUSED OUTSIDE HELP

    KK DISTROYED THIS COUNTRY ARE WE FORGETTING

  31. A lot of PF sympathizers are dull. Look at Tanzania under Magufuli, what has Menomeno achieved in 6 yrs other than pile up debts and corruption never seen in Zambia before? You people are unreal.

And ba under5 stop this non sense of saying hh is the only hope..How can he even be the only hope for Zambia when he doesn’t understand who the government system operates..No try and error it’s not like clothes or pants.

  33. U don’t need to substitute ECL becoz his time has expired. In 2021 ECL was elected as per Constitutional Requirement. The 1991 Republican Constitution didn’t provide for completing Sata’s 5 year Term. The Constitution didn’t allow it and further more ECL was not a VP to President Sata. So the argument that ECL completed Sata’s Term is false. In short ECL won the Election in 2015 and was sworn in Office as President for a First Term of 18 Months. In 2016 ECL was elected and was sworn in for his second 5 years Term which is expiring on August 12,2021. On this basis the Republican Constitution 106 (3) prohibits ECL from standing for re-election for a Third Term. ECL’s Third Term Bid is therefore illegal and unconstitutional. Kwamana ba Dala.
