UPND youths stage midnight vigil at HH’s house as reports of his impending arrest intensify

Feature Politics UPND youths stage midnight vigil at HH’s house as reports of his...

Hundreds of UPND youths on Sunday night marched to Hakainde Hichilema’s residence in New Kasama where they kept vigil after reports resurfaced that Police were planning to stage a dawn attack at his house.

The youths who sang songs in solidarity with their leader arrived at Mr Hichilema’s residence around 22 Hours and camped at the main gate until this morning.

They vowed to keep vigil and protect their leader from being arrested in the thick of the night.

Some vowed that they were ready to be arrested together with Mr Hichilema and die together with him if the Police intend to harm him.

The militant youths charged that the Police have been planning to arrest their leader for a while now but stated that enough is enough.

Earlier in the day, UPND Spokesman Cornelius Mweetwa revealed details of what he alleged was a plan to arrest and poison Mr Hichilema.

Mr. Mweetwa told a news briefing in Lusaka that the PF government has vowed that Mr Hichilema will not on the ballot box this August

He claimed that the PF government is now planning a zero option plan which involves eliminating Mr Hichilema at all costs.

Mr. Mweetwa said the zero option plan was resorted to after all attempts to link Mr Hichilema to any criminal matter failed.

  1. There is no need for these youths to stress themselves. The country is all watching nothing is going to happen where there is no legal right to arrest HH. Whatever planned arrest has to be substantiated before acted on. We are all watching

  2. Agony is wasting your time to hold a vigil for a man who is actually in a coma due to covid. We all know hh loves publicity. Are you telling me he would have given up a chance to address his fellow tribal donkeys? This is a sign that he is genuinely unwell. Let upnd come out and tell us so that we can pray for him.

  3. PF is stupid but not THAT stupid. Even the most ardent PF supporter would realize that jailing HH again would tantamount to revolution. There would be many deaths and it wouldn’t be just UPND friends but surely also security forces or PF. And that would then guarantee August 12 defeat for PF!

  4. Why kill your opponent when you know he is losing??? Upnd have run out of ideas as they know August 12 is not on their side. With the pending and current defections, they know they won’t match the PF campaign machinery. Already Charles Kakoma is pa ground doing damage in North Western. Pa last, it’s just to create confusion, very sad….

  5. These kind of politics must come to an end. If the State wants to eliminate Hichilema they won’t follow him at home because that would be the most awkward way of doing it. Cornelius Mweetwa as a police officer knows that he’s just playing on the emotions of ignorant youths. If Hichilema has committed a felony the youths he has gathered at his home won’t shield him from the Law. May be he wants to see blood because if the Police use even minimum force there’ll be a stampede. This shows how shallow this man is politically. Shame!

  7. @ No Corruption Zambia. Power corrupts and absolute Power corrupts absolutely. After 61/2 in Power its not easy for ECL to give up power willingly. ECL is failing to resist the Pull of Power but also fears re-retribution for crimes committed while in Power. ECL’s Third Term Eligibility project is uncertain and winning the 2021 Elections is also uncertain. In these circumstances ECL is desperate to retain Power at all costs. It will be very painful for ECL to handover Power to HH a Man he jailed for 127 days on false treason charges. It’s desperate times.

  8. The information is that they have been trying to find a ‘kidnapping charge’ over the two missing persons who were involved in the land case which failed (The two have actually gone into hiding because they were being harassed by the PF to appeal a case they were forced into, in the first place)

    Don’t underestimate the PF dunderheads in carrying out stu.pid actions without much thought – in desperation

  9. Something is definitely afoot. Once you see all the PF surrogates begin singing about the same thing ( in this case abductions of the Hatembos), then you know the police are about to be pressured into some brainless action. Interesting thing is that when there was a call by mainly UPND members for the Police to get involved in investigating assault and abduction of the two persons, the police and PF itself were uninterested. Now that there is a possible spin that they were abducted at HH’s bidding, all of a sudden this has become a key issue with Ntwetwe even threatening the IG. The lowly rated police are doing themselves no favours by keeping quiet and when they do comment, their remarks contradict their previous remarks.

  10. PF and UPND youths are the same, learn to practice responsible politics, why leave your homes to go out fight and swearing that you are willing and ready to die for your leaders? Shame.

  11. hmm ba UPND, 3 months to elections sure you can’t utilise it more productively? Does UPND really want to govern Zambia? Where is the manifesto you produced? This time Cornelius should be assigning teams to spread across the country and explain to Zambians both on radio and one on one why UPND will alleviate the sufferings of Zambians if given a chance to rule. Not this kind of politics. Ba Mwiitwa you are a graduate please show some reasoning in your approach to politics. So I should vote for UPND because of rumors of PF wanting to kill HH? How will that bring development? If UPND can’t protect their leader by managing where he goes and who he interacts with then they can be a risk to run the country. Mwiitwa and the likes of Nkombo should have a serious security system around HH. How…

  12. This HHHHHH mania will set the country aflame. The current situation when people are prepared to go cast their votes on 12/08/21 is the only guarantee to a peaceful Zambia we have cherished. Our leaders must be level headed and not take peoples’ patience for granted. Let the PF leadership come out clean, you have a rumor mills doing the rounds as this will just problems. How can a huge group of youths take it upon themselves to camp at HH’s residence in New Kasama to protect him from impending arrest. There is likely to be bloody confrontation between the Police in line of their duty trying to disperse the you. Let us not allow a situation like in RSA where EX Mk members camped at Jacob Zuma’s residence to prevent his arrest. The PF is the current ruling party and should ensure that…

  13. No smoke without fire as I think
    They are ready to arrest HH.No
    Need to create tension in the country. Just leave it to Zambians
    To decide who they Want in elections. Zambians are peaceful
    People.

  15. Zambian youths are full of talent, they just need a platform to present it. And, President Lungu’s administration is doing it successfully.

  16. I think youths can take a financial risk at this age as they have a scope to bounce back. The ambassador said it right, Young people should plan to become an entrepreneur.

  17. President Lungu and his government are always there to hold the hands of Zambians while they grow. Plus, the President launched several empowerment schemes and funds to boost their talents.

  19. There are several job opportunities available for young people under the government of President Lungu. Now, no more youths are joining UPND as a party cadre and ruining their lives.

  21. Our government is capable to provide a helping hand to youths studying in other countries. President Lungu wanted Zambian talent to grow not only in the nation but in the world.

  22. Most of the youths have understood the importance of education and job only because of continuous awareness among them by President Lungu’s administration.

  23. Entrepreneurship has a bright future, once the youth get success in it the work boundaries get extended. They can work in any part of the country and earn very well!

  24. Your advisors are taking your for a ride. They are digging your grave deeper and deeper every day. This trick is not going to work. If you believe them, then I must say, you are not at all fit to be politician. You should concentrate on your business.

  25. Who told you that such mindless claims will gain you votes? Even a child can say that you are trying to gain sympathy in the name of fake accusations.

  26. Now you are being like the boy who cried wolf. People have stopped believing you. We know that you are trying to get attention and nothing else.

  27. This Mweetwa is hallucinating and so is HH. But it is not going to affect any of the right thinking voters of this country.

  28. If hh is fine and of sound mind, then why doesn’t he quell these rumours and address the nation on live TV for an hour minimum. Hh loves publicity so why is it hard for him to come out on live TV? There is no shame in one being unwell. We are all humans and are susceptible to illness. X

  30. He has a set song that he sings every day: they want to poison me.
    He has literally poisoned the Zambian people that he fails to get required votes. If a person is not relevant, he makes false alarms as he struggles to be heard. He pays youths to help him deal with night hallucinations from his psychiatric recent challenges.

  31. HAKUNA KULALA FOR THERE PREFERED LEADER AND HAKUNA KULALA ON 12th AUGUST

    KANA WALALA YOU FIND MWAWAKOLE HAS DONE A SOPOLA.

  32. Areyou telling me that all these vigil keepers are family men?
    Who in his right sense leaves a wife, children and property unprotected to protect the protected?
