President Hichilema has not done anything to show off-Emmanuel Mwamba

Headlines President Hichilema has not done anything to show off-Emmanuel Mwamba

Former Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia Emmanuel Mwamba has said that it is disappointing that President Hakainde Hichilema is not in the hurry to change the welfare of the country, adding that Mr Hichilema and the new dawn government is departing from its promises and that the President has not done anything to show off.

Mr Mwamba said Mr Hichilema is even taking time to appoint people in key positions which are critical to the nation and that this development is a drawback.

“The President is not taking issues of the nation with a sense of urgency. This is very worrying because this is the person who gave us a timeline that when voted he will do this in 48 hours, will do this in 30 days but nothing is being done,” he said.

Mr Mwamba said the state of the economy needs quick intervention but nothing serious is coming out from the new government and the President’s new Government talked about restructuring the debt but this is not happening.

Former Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia Emmanuel Mwamba says President Hakainde Hichilema is being misled by the civil servants.

Mr. Mwamba said the accusation of PF led government awarding K12 billion contract to contracts that did not even have a shovel is baseless.

Mr. Mwmba said Mr. Hichilema should know that whatever is being told today and then issue alarming statements does not exist.

He said Mr. Hichilema must be careful before issuing any statement to the public.

Speaking on Hot FM today, the former Ambassador said civil servants who are telling him lies want to secure their jobs.

Mr. Mwamba said this happened during the Chiluba regime when civil servants lied that first Republican President Dr. Kenneth Kaunda stole about K4 billion and after investigations the information was false.

Mr. Mwamba said Permanent Secretaries who were responsible for awarding contracts can not award a contract to a contractor who has not registered with National Council for Construction (NCC).

“The country is waiting to hear which PS awarded such a contract and waiting to see that the K12 billion is recovered.

But in the next 2 to 5 years, you will find out that such allegation is false. So the President needs to be very careful with statements,” he said.

Mr. Mwamba said such a statement can even false the Law Enforcement Officers to take the matter to court and at the end of the day they will be embarrassed.

Mr. Mwamba said President Hichilema was supposed to learn from the previous President and be a good leader but he repeated the same mistakes.

  2. That’s how the PF failed to find out how the people were really feeling about them. They had no time to listen to anyone else other than themselves and their ilk. And lazy journalists think the likes of Emmanuel Mwamba are thought leaders.

  3. “….Mr. Mwamba said Permanent Secretaries who were responsible for awarding contracts can not award a contract to a contractor who has not registered with National Council for Construction (NCC)…..”

    Mwamba seems to have lived outside zambia for too long or is just naive…….

    Corruption abound that I can register a company with NCC in 1 day stating I have all the equipment……

    Or , as was the most common scame with PF PEPS ,get contracts and just sell them on at a huge profit………..

  4. Sir, you and many of your colleagues in PF have STARTED talking a lot of ‘sense’ since you left office / was fired / was voted out office etc. Why this ‘sensible talk’ was not implemented in the last 10 years is anyone’s guess.

  5. It obvious Emmanuel Mwamba knows more than the rest us. He is saying that HH has nit appointed people to key positions and there is nothing to show off during his 100 days in Office. Sometimes its better to take leave and watch from a distance rather than daring people who want to collect things which fell apart during PF misrule. If Mwamba never saw the wrongs which PF committed then he was living in another world.

  6. Mwamba there is nothing to smile about. People are still hurting from the unreasonable leadership of PF. Here we are voted out and you still making noise. It’s colossal failure of your malnourished mental faculties to deny that contracts were not awarded to ‘briefcase’ business men (those who did not even have a shovel). You run your mouth too much little wonder President Sata dropped you, a short-lived PS. Edgar had no use for you but to stash you as an ambassador. Give HH space to perform, he has his own vision and ideologies.

  7. Not done anything?
    Freedom is something you do not see much in Africa. In Zambia now do.
    This President has given 18 million people freedom’s they have never had. That alone is a massive SUCCESS, and within in 100 days
    Zambians should celebrating

  8. First things first. The UPND govt have to some extent closed the leaking bucket which you Emanuel Mwamba & your corrupt criminal enterprise where greedily benefiting from. Development can only come once you have cleaned the rot so finances can start to flow to correct use. People with full mouths chewing corrupt money should talk less nonsense & rather join hands to build this beautiful nation of ours. Stop being petty & have constructive criticism to repair the damage PF caused.

  9. @Pinkfong – Perhaps they did talk sense even then; but the upper echelons didn’t listen! Look how it cost them all!

  10. “Mr. Mwmba said Mr. Hichilema should know that whatever is being told today and then issue alarming statements does not exist.

    He said Mr. Hichilema must be careful before issuing any statement to the public.“LT

    We told you the first trip to New York to the United Nations was a disaster , you didn’t want to believe us. Towards the end of the election the leading candidates didn’t want to hold each other accountable and look at the mess you put us into.

    That’s not how you handover the instrument of power in a democracy.

  11. LT why do you have to moderate my comments? You were doing this to protect PF but PF was discarded like garbage? Why do you do things that do not work?

  12. Honorable Mwamba. Yes he has. Radically changed the tone in the country. Institutions such as the police are being strengthened and in due course we will see more professionalism, Fantastic choice for Chief Justice…should I go on?

  13. How embarrassing is it when h² parades his Ministers and PS and gives them a lecture and sends some to go and recover supposed stolen money? Who does that? In what capacity can a controlling officer recover money from an outgone leadership?
    Cipa.nte pan.te leadership when a clueless head of state turns lecturer and gets relentless in spreading lies, makes careless statements that are unclear in nature – at the mercy of a shade rhetoric of an alliance g.oo.n and launches countless campaigns of allegations.
    All those wrongly accused must take steps to sue the ACC and other erring officers of the law in order to teach h² a lesson or two about the RULE OF LAW in its proper context.

  14. I honestly know no human being born of a woman can turn round the decline of the Kwacha in two hours, and I know no ordinary man can create jobs in two weeks…. but our children were lied to and in their desperation went out en mass to vote for their Messiah.

  15. Here is another one who cannot comprehend that he is now irrelevant, but just continues yapping as if in authority. Old empty tin, throw it out

  16. Mwamba, trying to be relevant\, sour grapes. Let others also try to better the country. All of a sadden you seem to have good ideas. I do not need to hear them from you anymore.

  17. So for all intents and purposes this guy was a propaganda and party functionary first and then sometimes an ambassador, right?

  18. You people destroyed, raped and ransacked this country for alteast a good 7 years and you want it repaired in 3 months. it can only be possible in with a miracle. you dont even dersever to be alive you all should be burning in hell fire, pleading for mercy. you are sons and daughters of lucifer. do you know how many innocent people you killed with fake drugs, gassing and hunger due to your corruption?
