Headlines President Elect Hakainde Hichilema pledges to unite Zambia

President Elect Hakainde Hichilema has pledged to unite Zambia and restore the one Zambia one nation motto. He said those who voted for the UPND and those who did not vote for UPND would be treated the same.

Mr. Hichilema said his cabinet will reflect the motto as it will have a national character.He said tribe will not matter under his leadership as Zambians will have equal opportunities.

Addressing the media at his residence in Lusaka today, Mr. Hichilema added that rising through the ranks of the civil service will be based on competence and not tribe.

And Mr.Hichilema told those who will be appointed not to marginalise citizens but to be tools for inclusion, unity and creating opportunities for all. Mr. Hichilema also said now that the elections are over, it’s time to move on and work for Zambians saying he is here to serve.

He also thanked Zambians for giving the UPND Alliance a resounding victory attributing it to the key role the youths played.

Mr .Hichilema thanked his running mate Ms. Mutale Nalumango, all the members of the UPND Alliance, the candidates, the campaign teams and well-wishers who worked tirelessly on the front lines and behind the scenes.

The President Elect thanked his wife Mutinta, who he said has always been by his side through thick and thin.

“You will make an incredible First Lady. To my children and the rest of my family, your love and enduring support has been a great source of strength,” Mr.Hichilema said.

  2. Well done Sir. Mr President.

    Already the PF bootlickers and currier thieves, the likes of lusambo and Lubashi from eastern province wants to joint and work with you.

    Kindly do not entertain these venomous crooks at all costs. Imagine 5 years of no corrupt proceeds

  4. Restore the one Zambia one nation motto where it does barely exist, in particular, Southern, Western, North-Western. In the other 7 provinces the motto is well exercised and has reflected well for you HH! Congrats Mr. President.

  7. And when he was in opposition he was very unpatriotic and even refused to call Edgar as President….he was willing to sabotage the country and cause more misery on Zambians so that he can assume office…anyway now the ball is in your court but notice how respectful Edgar Lungu was towards your Victory…and also ask your People in Southern Province why they didn’t vote for no else but you….and you won’t see any PF bloggers insulting you or wishing you death like the way UPND bloggers prayed for Sata’s death….the truth hurts

    You must be out of your mind to say what you have just said very baseless. HH as always been patriotic and respectful. HH was painted evil by your evil party PF. Just a few days ago your ECL was promising you empty tins and tribal people that of ECL wins, HH goes to jail. Secondly, your ECL two days ago didn’t want to
    Concede and give power now humble is that..? It called for PF MCC to convince ECL to hand over power. Lesa ni malyotola muletina imfumu.
    Take it with a pinch of salt, HH is now the 7th Republican President of our beloved Zambia. Already looks a statesman. And we love HH. Take your tribal nonsense somewhere else. Politics of the belly at the expense of majority Zambians is OVER. Kwasila. Next is to let the courts follow up on criminal…

  11. Both HH and Edgar behaved extremely mature. No Mwaliteta was arrested for “aggravated robbery” of results in this elections.

  13. Isn’t it sad how even in defeat, even now that the Zambian people have overwhelmingly stated their case, some PF sympathisers here still want to spread tribal talk and outrightly discredit the president elect even before he takes office! Your tribal talk is a sickness. Get help

  14. Let HH stick to his team.We have seen alot
    Of your opposition leaders who are willing
    To join you now that the cake is ready.Just
    Tell them to join you after five years so they
    Also feel the weight in opposition.

  15. Is it not embarrassing that hh articles only have these few comments. Whenever LT had an article about me, it got over 150 comments in few hours.

  17. Lungu will be found to be the most useless president ever…………

    HH has a very unfair challenge, lungu set the bar so low , that HH does not even have to try , and he will perform better than the hopeless lungu……….
