Nawakwi is Trying to use The Hatembos to Wipe Off her K88 Million DBZ Debt – Mweetwa

Headlines Nawakwi is Trying to use The Hatembos to Wipe Off her K88...

Opposition Forum for Democracy and Development President Edith Nawakwi is using the Hatembos as a bait to clear the Eighty Eight million kwacha debt owed to the Development Bank of Zambia, says UPND National Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa.

Speaking at a media briefing yesterday, Mr Mweetwa says the party is in receipt of information that the opposition leader has entered an unholy pact with the PF of insulting and issuing desperaging remarks against UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to avoid paying the huge debt.
He challenged Ms Nawakwi to dispute the reports of her failing to settle the almost 90 million kwacha debt owed to DBZ with the bank on the verge of grabbing some of her properties to recover the money.

“Everyone has been wondering why madam Nawakwi has been making all manner of attacks against the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.But now my desk is in receipt of information and very authentic that she has entered into a pact with the PF to do so as a way of saving herself from paying the huge 88 million kwacha debt she owes DBZ.She is left with no choice but becoming the PF’s vuvuzela in order to be shielded from the legal action against her by DBZ for defaulting.We pity her but we shall not allow her to continue along that trajectory,” Mr Mweetwa said.

He further revealed that the party has recieved petitions from the Mazuba family from whom President Hakainde Hichilema bought the Kalomo Farm and are now demanding to speak out on the matter.

“You might be aware that HH did not buy that farm from the Hatembo family but from the Mazuba family who have since petitioned the UPND to allow them take part in settling the circus which they said was being taken advantage of. They have asked me to communicate to madam Nawakwi to respect the dead. They told me that if their father was alive, the issue of the said farm would not have arisen. I insist that politicians needs to begin giving credence to politics,” he said.

The outspoken UPND Mouthpiece also questioned the decision by the PF to engage the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit as a frontline rigging conduit through the distribution of 10kg bags of mealie-meal to retirees from whom NRCs and Voters cards are grabbed as he challenged the DMMU to deny the allegations.

  1. The business environment is toxic and disabling in Zambia. I don’t blame many businesspeople who find themselves in difficult financial situations because borrowing money for business operations is often commercial suicide itself. Where will jobs cone from if there’s no commercial success?

  2. Don’t ever listen to Nawakwi, Lungu and Chishimba Kambwili they say one thing and do another.Nawakwi herself is about to be in more dire financial straits after her defamation suit comes up.

  4. Jezebel Nawakwi has sold her Soul to the Devil to get debt relief from the Creditors. That is why she is determined to get HH arrested and get his name removed from the Ballot Paper. Nawakwi is being used and bankrolled by ECL to eliminate HH from the Presidential Race. Even with Rigging it is a tall order for ECL to get 50%+1 vote threshold with HH’s Name on the Ballot Paper . So the solution is to stop HH from filing his Nomination Papers on 17th May 2021. Now there are signs in PF Strongholds that People will vote for HH in huge numbers. Hence ECL is panicking. He can’t Rig elections in his Strongholds. Lusaka and CB Provinces are swing States in Zambia’s Elections. If ECL looses the two Provinces it will be difficult to get the required 50%+1 vote threshold even with open…

  5. This is the problem we have in Zambia Mweetwa is an educated person but here is parading himself responding to Nawaki to please his pay master.As the biggest opposition try to waste time explaining to people how your policies will better the lives of Zambian people to win the elections on the 12th August that’s the message people want to hear

  6. UPND took to long to use this Mweetwa in right position. Now UPND have a good striker, not that Charles Kakoma from Kansanshi dynamos.

  7. Does upnd ever tell its voters what it intends to do if it forms government? From where I am sitting all I can see is a party that is preoccupied with squabbles and social media. Their president spends all night and day commenting childish things all over social media. Yet when we are announced winners he will claim rigging. F00lish party full of f00lish members

  8. But Mwetwa and UPND told us that Nawakwi was doing whatever she was doing to become ECL’s running mate. Hope the new insights are final.

  9. Nawakwi has never insulted anyone as far as I know. She has just raised issues. Those issues must be responded to without insulting her. What she has a raised a matter of interest to would be voters. Instead of responding with facts , you cause her to be insulted on social media. That is not politics. Respond to the issues and convince the Zambians that there is no substance in what she is alleging then we move on.

  10. The argument Madam Nawakwi is raising is important. We do not what leaders who have skeletons in their cupboards. We want to ensure whoever is aspiring for political office is above board. If any issue is raised about them, they should simply come out and clear themselves. So if HH is accused of having something that does not make him worthy for political office, let him come out and clear himself. It applies to anyone , not only HH. Mutati, Kalaba , Malanji, Dora Siliya, Madam Inonge, Nawakwi etc. We need to know all potential leaders before they get into office. Lets not instigate insults when we are asked to clear our names.

  11. Comelius Mweetwa needs to learn how banks function. It is not at all good sign that spokesperson of a party that aims to win the elections is so ignorant about the procedures. But I am not surprised. It is perfectly in line with the lack of knowledge and ignorance of his supreme leader. He too is completely in dark about functioning of governance and administration.

  12. If that’s how the loans could be wiped off, then everyone would have done that. Why don’t you think before making such f00lish statements, Mweetwa? You are the spokesperson of the party! Don’t you think it is the most $tupid statement to be made by a person like you?

  13. You need to be doubly sure about the sources providing such information to you. They are taking you for a ride and you seem to be enjoying it. By the way, you must keep it in mind that while making such a sweeping statement, you must give proofs to corroborate it.

  14. I am surprised that how can media even publish such baseless allegations. Mweetwa is free to speak whatever comes to his mind. He is bound to his pay master and doing his duty. But editors and journalists are supposed to learned people. They have the basic knowledge and expertise to decide what is to be published and what is to be trashed.

  15. When you insist that politicians need to begin giving credence to politics, let it begin with you. Why don’t you give credence to what you just claimed? How about some clinching evidence to expose the plan of Nawakwi? Don’t you think it will hit where it hurts the most? Otherwise with only hollow talks you will end up having an egg on face, like always.

  16. You said it. By this logic, the Panama Papers would haunt HH even before the defamation suit against Nawakwi come up. As far as the defamation is concerned, what moral right does HH has to sue anyone for defaming him, he is facing charges of corruption and tax evasion?

  17. Don’t politicise the matter. We know that UPND is in serious trouble as the MPs and leaders are quitting. They have realised that your party is sinking ship. Go and first save it. We will debate on elections issues and prospects of UPND’s win, may be in 2036.

  18. When one realises that the future is bark, he resorts to such childish tactics. This is politics, Mweetwa, not some quarrel between grade two children. Be specific, show the proof. Mere claim that your desk has received some information won’t suffice. You need to give the proof.

  19. This claim has exposed you. Now we know that how dull you are. By making such allegations, you are not helping HH, on the contrary, digging his grave, deeper and deeper.

  20. I appreciate your dedication to the most corrupt man in the country. It is really commendable. But let me tell you one thing, no matter how hard you try, people will not accept you and HH will not adopt you.

  21. The Panama papers show HH’s name and not a pen name. That’s not the behaviour of one hiding something. I take it that HH can answer questions on whatever money has passed through the business account in Panama. Some of HH’s international business partners do not live in Zambia. It’s not against Zambian law for a Zambian to register a business in Panama.

  22. This is the most baseless and useless allegation i have ever head. Please let us be serious with what we do and say to the public. Have we become this shallow? God help our so called leaders.

  23. Which politician has no bad record? Nawakwi
    Was in carlington maize deal.Very few like
    Magufuli working for people and not their
    Belly.

  24. When a ‘layer’ turned vuvuzela displays such ignorance should you wonder why his great leader is struggling? If EZN owes money to DBZ I am certain they will recover….in good time but if I owe money and I will be allowed not to settle if I speak against mao..then tomorrow I am going to borrow….after all to borrow is normal….

  25. No wonder Nawakwi has been talking too much.
    The problem of debt is huge in Zambia. The PF disease of debt has even infected politicians like Kambwili, GBM , Nawakwi etc.
    In Mwanawasa’s time , Zambian people were not this broke.

  26. POLITICS IN THIS COUNTRY HAS DROPPED TO ITS LOWEST LEVEL IN ITS 56 YEAR HISTORY
    THANKS TO PF AND ITS D1CTAROR!AL WAYS SO ALL PARTIES HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FOLLOW SUIT
    CLEAN HONEST POLITICS IS NO LONGER RELEVANT

  27. Hon. Mweetwa, stop responding to the Nawakwi rants if you know that she is a hired gun to ensure HH’s name does not appear on the ballot papers. Its better to spend time explaining to people how UPND is going to fix the various problems which PF has caused to mother Zambia. Nawakwi is there to divert the UPND campaign effort so that by the time you start serious campaigns she would have swayed the voters mind set.

  28. MWEETWA, how come you don’t understand this simple strategy being played by PF through Nawakwi. They are framing you to get into a defensive position, and I think with this type of “my desk is in receipt of information and very authentic ” type of s.h..it, believe me, they are getting you exactly where they want you to be.
    Please, do not reduce yourself to this level, arguing with Nawakwi. If you think that will deter her from attacking your HH & UPND, then you are mistaken.Focus on your manifesto, and what change you will bring. In other words, focus on spreading the reasons why you ought to be voted into Office. Nawakwi has nothing to lose at this point in time

  29. Is not funny that the all UPND is having sleepless nights over Madam Nawakwi? Why? Why? Why? If she is just ranting with no proof ignore her and focus on what ypu want to do for Zambians. Should HH be hiding from Nawakwi and be speaking through third parties over a simple issue which can be cleared in just a few minutes? This reponse from Mr. Mweetwa will make us believe there is more to this than we know.

  30. Had HH invested all his money inside Zambia, he would have already been brought to his knees to worship the corrupt PF government, just as the likes of GBM and CK… But as it is now they can do nothing to him financially. This what we call wisdom.

  31. What assets would Nawakwi leverage for that kind of loan not even a farm is worth that amount…some allegations are far fetched…she must owe some money but Mweetwa has inflated it to force a speedy response!!

  32. Zambians are very good for gossip and believing in trivia across the board meaning even amonf the perceived ‘well informed’ minds peddling lies with intent on malice is more glorified than working towards bigger aspirations good for the Zambian people! Politicians are irritating to say the least! Mweetwa is making noise playing to the gallery on Nawakwi when the courts would bring her to the level satisfactory of her lies and ersonal agenda! She is an example of politicians who are easily accessed to bank loans that ordinary Zambians have to climb mountains trying to access only to fail yet to politicians it’s turned into a grant or the lending institution disappears together with the peoples money.

  33. And we are supposed to call them the largest opposition political party think tanks in Zambia ? my word!
    Is there no way these guys can show more leadership than this.?

  34. Hakainde Hichilema sued her for defaming him. There is yet another lawsuit from UPND. Sue her again for failure to pay DBZ loan…..kkkkkkkk
