Our agenda is to re-build and re-unite Zambia and nothing will stop us-HH

Feature Politics Our agenda is to re-build and re-unite Zambia and nothing will stop...

By Hakainde Hichilema

Today we welcomed our colleagues into the struggle to redeem Zambia from ruin.

Our agenda is to re-build and re-unite this country and nothing will stop us from bringing this nation together. This our new alliance members agree with.

Today, we have moved a step forward as a united opposition to bring about the change Zambians are yearning for. In welcoming our colleagues into the UPND Alliance, we reminded each other that we are all in an Alliance with the people of Zambia who want change of government come August 12.

The Alliance will campaign throughout the country in a bid to remove the current Government which has destroyed the country in all aspects.

When we unite, we can move mountains. Come 12 August this year, all those dividing us will be put ‘ku wire.’ We say no to division; those who are dividing us can’t defeat us in the ballot and through the ballot, we can recover that which this country has lost; decency, unity and hope

As we go into this election, unity of purpose and people’s power is key. No one can defeat People Power. Unity of purpose is a truism, it worked before and it will work on 12 August as we come together to deliver this country.

We should harbour no fear of detention. Those before us were arrested for us to get independence. In the same manner, let’s all be strong and remain focussed. What matters is our country and nothing will deter us from serving the people of Zambia.

To our new alliance partners, we say ‘welcome once again.

  1. The first decision for the alliance members is to appoint a presidential candidate, NOT being HH. Sticking to HH will end in disappointment on August 12.

  2. All these are a bunch of deceitful leaders. There’s no truth in them but lies and pretence. None of our current leaders in UPND and PF Qualify to take this country forward. They are all a bunch of crooks with ill intentions of milking the poor in this country. We need new leaders with Genuine intentions to take this country foward. How do we trust someone whose involvement in privatisation is questionable and how do you trust a lawyer who has contributed so much to our corrupt Judicial systems. Some of us have been arround for a while. We know some of these characters who are now trying to portray that they are Angels and can save this country. We are just jumping from a flying into the fire. What Zambia needs are leaders who have never been involved in any scandle. Zambians should come…

  3. Continued…. Zambians should come out and work in unity to grow a new revolutionary party with a visionary leader such as the new UNIP party. Otherwise, corruption and vices which has damaged our economy will be forever

  4. None of them has been president of Zambia before. So it’s premature to label them as liers, progressive, failures or whatever. They’re merely citizens asking voters to try them, trust them etc. Is that too much to ask?

  5. I hope this alliance will not just end on the drawing board here in Lusaka but the members should start preparing seriously to hit the ground.

    “……. Zambians should come out and work in unity to grow a new revolutionary party with a visionary leader such as the new UNIP party. Otherwise, corruption and vices which has damaged our economy will be forever……”

    You must be a PF stoog trying to dupe people to stick with lungu……

    You know elections are near , yet you are disuading the only viable opposition to lungu , which is hh ……

  7. In the 2016 elections Mutati joined to work with UPND . When UPND lost he ran away back to PF via MMD. And now at the last hour he has surfaced again in the new skin… Sure my UPND leaders are we that desperate ? Then we make him running mate?

  8. They come well dressed in suits to plunder. Remember Chiluba and his new culture? KK called them little men in suites. Be warned.

  9. Where is our own Mutale Nalumango? Ba HH why are u embracing chancers? Did you not learn anything from ba Micheal Sata?

  10. The problem with ba Boss is that he believes there should always be a Bemba as his running mate. Sir Zambia has moved beyond Bembalisation. We have had ba Chisanga, Ba Godfrey , Ba Kambwili, . They all came and are gone. The same Ba Mutali came and dissapeared after we lost Have yo forgotten Sir. Do not have the illusion that we have to have a bemba as VEEP. Where we are now we can still without having a Bemba in our top leadership. Have you forgotten what ECL said about Bembas? Please discard these chaps you are bringing in our party . Mutale Nalumango is enough Bemba we have…just make her the running mate .

  11. This is desperation and visionless….. true Chipantepante. Surely are we that desperate in UPND.

  12. Just a recap,
    1) it’s an aliance, the other presidents are still leaders of their own parties.
    2)Both Mutati and KBF have exited PF, without smearing PF or Lungu. No insults as we witnessed with Chimbwili or GBF when they left PF
    3) The alliance, has publicly declared, HH as their own leader. Although KBF is says he is more intelligent, that doesnt hurt the alliance
    4) They articulate certain themes that resonate with the public – Rule Of Law & Governance are powerful themes , that could sway voters
    If they can combine the slogan, “MOVE FORWARD” to the “ZAMBIA WE WANT”, this can be powerful and resonate with many people.
    Lets give them a benefit of doubt, and support them. Let the best team win – UPND Alliance or PF Alliance

  17. “ The Alliance will campaign throughout the country in a bid to remove the current Government which has destroyed the country in all aspects.“ the biggest joke in our land. These guys cannot even distinguish their left hand from their right. The last five years they have been in hibernation, then the last four months they will show some people that they can do something??

  18. The Agenda “The Zambia we want” is good. What remains is to diseminate the message to the Electorate. The majority of Zambians want a change of Govt;they are fed up with the Corrupt, incompetent and Visionless ECL and his PF Govt. People will vote 4 HH and the UPND Alliance and for change. The challenge for HH and UPND Alliance is how to protect the Vote. If the Vote is protected HH will win the 2021 Elections. Most Zambians are unhappy with PF Corruption, Lawlessness, misrule and mismanagement of the Economy. On August 12 ECL will be sent “ku wire”. Giving ECL another 5 years is as good as Zambians committing suicide. The writing is on the wall.

  19. A drowning under five clutches at a straw.
    Even these new found partners he wants to cling to won’t save UPND; in fact they serve to suffocate HH and he will sink in this political turbulent water.

  20. I seriously do not understand what HH gains from aligning himself with losers who bring nothing to the table, MCS tried these alliances and they didnt work, the Zambian people want change and UPND is very likely to win the elections.

  21. HH must be honest, the only reason he’s accepted to work with these 3 is that he thinks they’ll help him win the Bemba vote. Ernest Mwansa left FDD after he was defeated by Nawakwi, KBF has left PF because he’s not been allowed to be their candidate & Mutati founded MDC because he couldn’t work with Nervers Mumba. Their narrow agenda is to just remove PF from power otherwise there’s nothing that’ll put on the table. They don’t have any program beyond that so which hope do they offer to Zambians? You’ll see what I mean when campaigns begin because these chaps will differ. Precedents are there when there was the UDA. Even with KK’s backing UDA performed poorly because they were divided. Why is it that HH always looks to others to help him win an election?

  22. KBF is a known criminal…He stole my late cousin’s money in 2004 when he used to operate from EW Tarry along cairo..and HH is so desperate to become President and he will work with any Makaka masquerading as a Politician……This could be the end of HH….

  23. With a song of hate there is no need to form an alliance. We, as Zambians, have a duty to rebuild the country. Explain how you are going to do to rebuild Zambia. I can read your song between the lines. Your song is ‘ l will bring in capitalists to enslave Zambians’. Take a leaf from Tanzania, Ruanda and Ghana, they have better strategy-believing in themselves. Give us a good song. As of now, we are united and peaceful. Give us a forward looking song or forget about a winning vote from the undecided. Today, advise you, say job well done for commissioning Kazungula bridge, it will earn you some votes.

  24. Desperation for sate house at it’s best. How can a tribalist re-build and re-unite Zambia? Edgar is really a threat to HH and other opposition parties.
