The corrupt clique that stole from the Zambian people has started fighting back-HH

Headlines The corrupt clique that stole from the Zambian people has started fighting...

President Hakainde Hichilema has said that the corrupt clique that stole from the Zambian people has started fighting back.

Speaking at State House today after swearing-in Mary Chirwa and Daphne Nawa Chimuka as Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) Director-General and Teaching Service Commission Chairperson respectively, President Hichilema said that the clique is using the media to divert the attention from the recovery of what they stole from the Zambian people.

The president said that the clique is employing people all over including government officials teaching them how to siphon money from the government.

President Hichilema said the clique of thieves is now fighting back in the fight against corruption by calling other people Kawalala.

“The money meant for CDF should not be taken away by a clique. What is wrong is wrong. Taking away resources from Zambians is wrong. They have now started fighting back. They are behaving like what happens in our communities. Somebody steals from a widow selling at the markets, they run away, they are chased, a distance away from a point of stealing increases, and they start pointing at the front and say kawalala, kawalala,” he said

“That’s what’s happening. The clique is now employing the media, I wanna talk to the colleagues in the media, the clique is now employing colleagues in the media to generate stories diverting our attention away from following up the money that belongs to the public by shouting Kawalala, kawalala. For the international media kawalala in our local language means thief.”

He advised members of the public, the media, and other government officials not to fall to the strategy.

President Hichilema stated that the clique had invested in directing opinion using various social media platforms.

The head of state has, however, vowed to be relentless in the fight against corruption even if it means him standing alone, reiterating that there will be no sacred cows in the fight against corruption

President Hichilema has since called on Zambians to stand together as a nation in the fight against corruption to stop the leakage.

President Hichilema has directed the new Teaching Service Commission Chairperson Daphne Chimuka to ensure there is no segregation in the recruitment of the 30,000 teachers earmarked for recruitment this year and reminded Mrs. Chimuka that the commission has a huge task to ensure there is a change in the way teachers work.

President Hichilema said that education is the best inheritance for any child, adding that children must get the best in education.

President Hichilema said his government will not make noise but deliver on the aspirations of the people of Zambia.
He said he hears people saying “‘the President is making too much noise he will get tired’; this fellow doesn’t get tired to talk about what is right.”

  3. Our great dear leader is a troubled soul. He sees ghosts in Nkwazi House and he is now starting to believe his own propaganda. I have started to genuinely feel sorry for him.

  4. Mr president I consider you to be part of the clique thieves that robbed Zambians during the privatisation process. You were not prosecuted for the dubious role you played for the simple reason that all previous presidents starting from Chiluba benefited. Prosecuting you would have opened a can of worms. Should Sean Tembo become our next president, I can see you being locked up.

  5. 1. Ouch! Mr President. Make up your mind. First it was – we will go after all those that stole from the government. Then came the notion by the Vice President that the government will grant immunity to those that surrender what they stole. And now the cliques are fighting back and diverting the attention using the media. Why should it bother you what gets said in the media – if you know you are making progress? If anything, it is exposing you that you are no near making progress.

  6. Kikikikikikijukija Hehehehehehe nkunkunkunkyu hahahahahaha kwekwekwekwe kwikwikwikwikwi!
    Damn, this sounds so empty. Just running after people, citizens without evidence is sick. Sounds like having a case against someone in the head and asking the same accused for evidence. Are you crazy man? Right now baal is just making noise. With evidenceless and proofless gear clique baal ateke amatako panshi.
    Baal sounded so deflated. He sounded like a person losing hope. Dear baal, insinuations that people are being taught to siphon money in Government is quite an unfortunate allegation coming from the head of the kingdom. The Kingdom of baal is now crying over social media, the platform he so dearly defended. What’s with occupiers of state house and social media?

  7. 2. The nation wants plunders get convicted. We want you to succeed in this fight. So far you have nothing much to show to the public apart from
    sniffer dogs going round in circles. How can they be diverting the process and attention if surely you know what they did and happen to have evidence to prosecute them? The Catch 22 is that we know some of these plunders have done the crimes with your close friends who funded UPND. Therefore, you failing to make moves on the chessboard.

  8. Just wait and see they’ll fight back by calling HH “a privatization thief”. Very predictable fellas these PF thieves.

  9. Fighting corruption shouldn’t only be to those in the previous government but should be extended to those who got rich without proper explanation , of how they got rich when their up bringing was all poverty and indeed without any history of any riches and there is no trace of who their father is and if he ever owned a bicycle , but all of a sudden during privatization they got immensely rich , and today they are still keeping the same riches and no one has bothered to arrest them .
    It is immoral to say you fighting corruption when you know that you are the most corrupt person in the land, and now you are in power and talking big about fighting corruption .

  10. Please stop alarming the country. How can you allow thieves to fight back as commander in chief? We have not seen any successful arrests by your comical law enforcement agents. They are so amateurish to a point where they warn thieves to away and bring the evidence. Wouldn’t be surprised if they connive with the thieves to dribble you as you make speeches.

  11. This man has given more excuses in four months than Dr Kaunda gave in twenty seven years. Yes people could have stolen but because of the way your agents are going about it may make it impossible to secure convictions. Even cadres like Anderson Banda so called provincial chairman is now an expert on the issue.

  12. Hakainde, you are the biggest thief. Do you know how many people have died because of your involvement in the privatisation.

    A lot of people have not recovered and they will never recover

  13. Oh I think he means the clique that privatised and sold this country for peanuts. Hh is fighting himself. He is a mad president

  14. There is definitely a distress tone in the voice of hh. He must be working under duress. These are signs that maybe he doesn’t approve of Government operations or he is having difficulties correlating Government business and corporate business. I don’t think there is that outright similarities given the broad spectrum of Government. Hh seem to be needing speedy execution of some tasks that are intertwined and dependent on other Government business process. Distress tone to that FIC girl almost corruptly directing her to report to him. And that siphoning thing is a serious lie by hh. Good luck.

  15. Last time we checked, it was him who was creating pages including the Zambian Watchdog na Prime TV for propaganda.
    You see this accusing finger? He was on the side of social media. Now it’s alien. This is total hypocrisy. The president needs to be investigated medically.

  16. Just prosecute them. Stup running commentaries We dont want to hear those. We want to see them in court. And pronto.

  17. HH is a big counterfeit that has happened in Zambia. The fight against corruption is just a smokescreen. He became overnight damn rich through privatization. Politics does not need leadership. Leadership needs politics. What vision and purpose has got for our nation. All he thinks about is winning the next election. He has no vision for this nation. No wonder, he used fake promises and lies to ascend to power.Praise singers are blind to all this.

  18. It is NOT possible to fight state machinery. The process is simple.
    1. Arrest suspects,
    2. take them to court,
    3. prove your allegations
    4. Then you get a conviction
    If you don’t have evidence and you start claiming they are fighting back we shall stop trusting you and take your claims as the boy who shouted lion.
    By the way it is a human right to defend oneself.
    The burden of proof lies with the accuser.

  22. HH is okay and UPND is on course. Those rejected by Zambians are still bitter and making noise. Hard Luck. Most Zambians like me did not vote for HH to do anything, all we wanted was to get rid of the PF, The objective was met, what happens going forward will sort itself out. But we believe UPND wont be a failed project like PF

  23. Henry @12. Go and exume the remains of the people who were in government then to explain to you the role that was played by HH in the privatization saga. In fact some are still alive, lawyers, accountants etc. This story has outlived its sale by date. You have deliberately singled out one man out of so many for reasons I would assume is based on jealous and nothing more.

  24. Derrick Chitala just stated that Lubinda wanted his signature to sell off strategic ZESCO real estate to his Chink mates …why isnt the ACC calling him in for questioning? If he could do that with ZESCO what more ZAFFICO

  25. If he is serious about corruption why was he against an inquiry into privatisation. Let him commission an inquiry. We will support that

  26. Zambians you should know that you cannot ask someone who stole from your house to catch another thief who have stolen from your house, especially if the thief you want arrested knows what the thief you have asked to arrest him did. Its very simple money has trails. If PF officials stole just produce the evidence and every sincere Zambian will rally behind you and all this rising cost of living will no longer be a trending issue. But you have single handledly given a $50 million fertilizer contract to your information minister’s family 3 months in government. Which sane person will believe what you are saying. Why have you failed to use the first FIC report to follow up corruption cases if UPND is not indirectly connected to the plunder?

  27. Bally you are a weak president. Don’t complain about them. Catch them. Lock them up. You are too weak. Like this you will never get anybody. They laugh at you and your amateurish behaviour. The police is back at getting bribes at roadblocks, and you do nothing. Very disappointed.

  28. While in opposition he exaggerated his capability and now that has come back to haunt him. He is doing exactly what he is accusing his colleagues off doing he is diverting attention away from himself being accused of stealing assets belonging to the people of Zambia. Vasco da Gama is not the right person to fight corruption neither does he have the clout to do that. He is just busy drawing a salary for nothing.

  29. This guy is just too weak. His expressions have shown that he is already losing the fight. He is a loner who wants to make all the descisions. His colleagues are keeping away from him . tHEY DONT TRUST HIM ANY LONGER

  30. Too weak and compromised. His upnd friends are asking why he is stopping them from making money. They are saying you made your money its our time also to make money. He his finding it difficult to stop them.

  31. Mr. President, what are you saying? We are getting confused as citizens. You have the instruments of power, the police, etc.
    If someone is suspected of commiting a crime, investigate them fairly, if evidence is found, charge and arrest them and finally, prosecute them.
    So what’s the problem? Of course you expect people to defend themselves, especially from manufactured charges, as we are reading in the media.
    If this whole corruption fight is genuine, I don’t see what the problem is.
