Meanwhile, Kasempa freedom fighters Association Secretary, Stanley Kyungupengu congratulated President Hichilema for winning the August 12, 2021 general elections.

“We thank President Hakainde Hichilema for your leadership by changing the old government to a new one,” Mr Kyungupengu said.

This year’s independence celebrations is being commemorated under the theme ‘celebrating a new dawn anchored on good governance, national unity and development’.


  1. Enough talk. Time for deeds. So far you haven’t delivered anything. HH is surrounding himself with yes-men and yes-women, and just like Sata gets used to the helicopter rides. In the meantime the Kwacha is depreciating again, food prices are still going up, loadshedding has got to a flying start and Zambians have seen NOTHING. Get to WORK.

  2. You guys have forgotten that you never attended any of these functions you are claiming can unite Zambians.

    I hope you have realised the damage you did whilst in opposition. Your remarks of the past are haunting you now.

  3. How can people renounce political differences when UPND and their supporters wantonly demonise anybody that is PF and all those coming from Northern and Eastern Provinces? You cannot expect those you demonise to work with the government of the day. They might as well stay away from national events the same way you did when you were in opposition. Politicians from provinces of the Northern and Eastern Provinces of Zambia cannot have the parties they stand on voted for in Northwestern, Western and Southern Provinces. It is as if people from these three provinces have sworn never to vote for any leader or candidate of any political party led by someone from the Northern and Eastern Provinces of Zambia. As people from the Eastern and Northern Provinces of Zambia, we are on our own and we…

  4. Blah blah blah this is all UPND is doing now…they’ve become speech therapist…it will be speeches for the next 5 years

  5. Please stop that useless project by napsa so ‘build’ 20,000 houses encourage farming on that land and that will creeate income and preserve the land on twin plam shihc is alreay congested with houses

  6. Funny this coming from Upnd who refused even their MPs to serve in the PF government, who expelled the Chilanga District Council for welcoming President Lungu when he toured the area. PF may have been bad your party made sure they became even worse.
