HH is becoming a let down-Sishuwa

General News HH is becoming a let down-Sishuwa

Respected Researcher and Historian Sishuwa Sishuwa has charged that President Hakainde Hichilema is slowly becoming a disappointment.

In a series of tweets, Dr Sishuwa said President Hichilema is exhibiting a lack of judgment and leadership on key national issues.

“Hichilema is slowly becoming a disappointment. His lack of judgement and leadership on key issues (corruption, leaked audio, SA trip) is alarming,” Dr Sishuwa stated.

He said President Hichilema held so much promise that he never imagined he would be saying this about him only five months in office.

“Hakainde Hichilema what’s going on?” He asked.

Dr Sishuwa cited the intimidation and arrest of Reporters from private media and arrest of critics of allegedly insulting the President as some of examples of President Hichilema’s lack of leadership.

“The narrative of a democratic resurgence in Zambia does not adhere to the reality: intimidation of independent media; arrest of critics for ‘insulting’ the president; use of state institutions to undermine the opposition; weakening of civil society; continued corruption in Govt!

He charged, “Zambia is not returning to democracy, as many believe. The legal architecture that enabled the authoritarian tendencies of Lungu and previous leaders remains unchanged.”

“We often forget that it’s not about the persona or goodness of the President; it’s about institutional reforms.”

  1. Iwe ka Sishuwa, you jst have a very careless big mouth. Aren’t you the ***** that 4 months ago was parading on South African media blaming PF & promoting HH? You can’t be trusted. You fool. SABC must interview you again to expose your lies.

  2. And to correct you, iwe ka UNZA historian, 1. Corruption: There is no president on Zambia that wud ve fought corruption the way HH is doing-let Zambians correct you cos proof is their across the country. 2. The Radio station(through Mwamba) tapped into statue house communication systems-this is cyber crime.3. I watched when HH was leaving for SA at the private airport he was asked reason of his visit, and he gave two reasons : 1. Ramaphosa visit. 2. Book launch (in which he added that it will be a very interesting book-buy it). So, iwe ka Sishuwa, you who is lying here cos HH did mention that yes iam going to launch a book aswell.

  3. Yaaa silence is not no good.
    On Audio he should have definitely removed dirty Akafumba, send him in foreign service.
    We know he slapped kachikkkala ka Levy Ngoma for mentioning Madam Nalumango.
    SA trip, no bro, HH need attend meetings for Freemason too.

  4. Your attacks are unwarranted. What key national issue? Why do you paint him has having failed in general terms?
    On corruption he has set up a fast truck court. The leaked audio, he cannot control want people do or say and SA trip, this is his prerogative. The dictator Lungu was constantly travelling abroad you never criticised him .He has given you the freedom of speech and you do not know what do with it. Why do you want everything to become perfect in 5 months after 20 years of PF destruction?

  5. It’s obvious that inspite of the infrastructure development achieved, the PF had done more harm than good. But it’s more disappointing that the Upnd wood winked the people that that had a quick and painless solution to the misdeeds of the PF. It’s now obvious that they don’t have any clue on how to solve the problems. Unfortunately like in the PF era we have praise singers who want to portray a rosy picture…. because they are now comfortable.

  6. @1 Step aside silently
    You’re a cult follower and very unpatriotic….is this your first time on Lusaka Times…notice the silence from UPND die hards Tarino Orange and Spaka like lilo…at least show patriotism sometimes… you can be a UPND supporter that’s not a problem but try to be objective…
    I do sympathize with PF but I used to criticize Lungu…..HH is a demagogue and a liar

  7. It is also obvious that the president lacks clear judgement.
    To see Ramaposa was a by the way thing. To launch that book was paramount to HH.
    How is the Oppenheimer book going to solve Zambia’s financial, political and social problems.
    HH left the country in a threatening disaster. It is factually true, he lacks leadership traits, diligence, good judgement. Mind you HH is not only for UPND anymore, but Zambia and we all have a right to voice our concerns.

  9. Shushwa …………..

    Even in your house , would you allow your family members to be insulting and throwing all manner of claims they can’t substantiate……?

    Let’s have some level of decency in the country……..

  10. HAHAHAHAHAHA we warned you..People thought pf was the devil and yet all along we did everything for the country’s benefit. You have not seen anything yet. This is only the beginning. We worked with hh for a short period during the failed alliance prior to 2011, and I can tell you that he is a very controlling dictatorial angry short tempered man. He is just starting. By next year you will not even be able to say what you are saying now ka sishuwa. Live with the decisions you made!

  11. IWE SISHUWA SURE, HAS THE LAW ON INSULTING THE PRESIDENT CHANGED? AS THE NEW PRESIDENT IN SUB-SAHARA ALLOW HH TO TRAVEL AND FAMILIARIZE HIMSELF WITH OTHER LEADERS. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN CHAGWA’S TRIP TO UGANDA WHICH OCCURRED WITHIN TWO DAYS OF ASCENDING TO OFFICE IN 2015?

  12. My primary school civics lesson taught me that inflation is when too much money chase too few goods. This the inflation we used to have in Unip days…we had shortages so the goods became very expensive. But today shops and markets are overflowing with all types of goods. Yet someone here is telling me that inflation is reduced. Even the dollar has become expensive on daily basis.

  13. One data point does not make a trend. For sure there have been missteps. But they do rise to this sort of breathless and alarmist indictments:

    The narrative of a democratic resurgence in Zambia does not adhere to the reality: intimidation of independent media; arrest of critics for ‘insulting’ the president; use of state institutions to undermine the opposition; weakening of civil society; continued corruption in Govt!

    ….Zambia is not returning to democracy, as many believe.

  14. @Deja Vu:
    1- Too much money ==> too few goods ==> high inflation.
    2- Little money ==> too many goods ==> low inflation.

    Not too hard to understand

    if you could only read and understand your own statement, you will find you know this already.
    Technically, inflation is an erosion of purchasing power. The Kwacha buys more dollars today than it did before August 12, 2021.

  15. Promises indeed! It’s erroneous to trust any politician implicitly! They tend to have forked tongues – but ineptly so; citizens soon suss out their nonsense and show them the door!

    #plant a tree please!

  16. Sorry Sishuwa Squared. I have to disagree with you here: You say HH is slowly becoming a disappointment. It should be HH is is FAST becoming a disappointment

  17. “…….arrest of critics for ‘insulting’ the president; use of state institutions to undermine the……..”

    We all saw the unhear of insults being hurled in videos by PF thugs in the run up to elections………

    Those were some of the most vile insults I have ever heard………..

    Without any sort of controls , those are the insults and language we will be seeing on TV and on radio in zambia…….

  18. the problem withthe Praise Singers, they completely fail to see reason in anything except singing praise even when it doesnt suit. This is how low people have become and its total shame to even think you can look at things around logically…
    shame!

  19. I now have 3.
    3 ardent supporters of baal (Kapya, Sangwa and now Sishuwa) all echoing the same sentiments.
    Sentiments of rude shock after learning baal’s incompetence.
    Incompetence we saw, predicted and affirmed even when he was in opposition.
    In opposition he promised you even on earth with unsure promises.
    Promises he can’t fulfill as you now learn that he lied.
    Lies that will live to haunt his ego.
    The Ego that him makes say one thing and do the exact opposite. Soon, I will have the 2.8.

  20. Becoming?
    He already is a disappointing figure. Are you in doubt? Just check the way he mishandled the privatization exercise.
    He is a liar too.
    Too bad it’s clicking too late in your heads. Did you expect something different?

  21. Even that demented asylum seeker tarino has gone quiet after selling lies to the people that led to the election of the worst president in history. Tarino don’t ever visit zambia because you will get beaten

  22. The project was to remove PF from government.since it was achieved the project came to an end.HH thinks he has time.

  23. From the day the August 12, 2021 elections results ushered in the UPND governance cementing it with the inauguration of HH the country’s citizenry has been abuzz with all sorts of views and analyses on government performance of less than 6 months! Experts representing a spectrum of expertise areas have surfaced with varying degrees of criticism or praise with some interest groups adding their voices, in a nutshell everyone everywhere within the borders of the country is impatient for quick results on what was supposedly “promised” during campaigns! Well good luck to all those wishing that the UPND administration delivers on its “wish list” for the people of Zambia within less than 6 to 12 months! However there is need for calm and patience coupled with civility in reminding the…

  24. some of these so cahhed researcher are just crooks and not respected by people who know them well. those are the researchers who taught and guided unza student wrong research ethics last year and ended up Giving and announcing wrong opinion polls that gave lungu almost 70% and HH ALMOST 30% AND YOU CALL SUCH A FUNNY HISTORIAN AND CROOKED RESERCHER RESPECTE. ITHINK SHISHUWA IS RESPECTED BY HIS FORMER STUDENTSLIKE ANTONIO AND NAKACHINDA,

  25. HH is human and prone to error but Zambians do not think his regime will be a failed project like for the ubomba mwibala alya mwibala regime who promised Zambians more money in their pockets and in ten years Zambians ended up with no money in their pockets. Let’s give HH chance to work, no murder case in the trip to SA

  26. Consistency is important… when Shishua was bombarding the PF he was “A RESPECTED RESEARCHER” Today he reminds the Upnd to live by their campaign promises he becomes A FAKE. This young man is not a praise singer but a Zambian who wants on behalf of the citizens the government to do the right thing. Please if you loved him yesterday, love him even today. Remember FOR WORSE OR FOR BETTER.

  27. But he is compromised, can’t be trusted at anymore. I think this applies to all UNZA graduates: selfish, very very selfish chaps who think that they are Zambia themselves, who think only of their opinion & do it for themselves only. They are very dull in many aspects but only clever at one UNZA subject. Look Sangwa, look at Nakacinda,Sean & now Sishuwa. Very self compromised chaps who don’t know if they are going or coming. To run a country it involves the entire UNZA deans & not jst being no.1 at one subject only.

  28. We need to stop these UNZA dunderheads from testing their thesis on Zambian people’s lives. Cos they speak to get attention in order to upgrade their qualifications. One good example of this was Sangwa. If I may ask, what exactly was the purpose of his petition? What results did it yield? Totally nothing, it had no effect whatsoever, zero. But trust me, it benefited only Sangwa himself cos his Resume now has that component, infact he could be the first & only plain citizen in Zambia to petition a sitting president. And that gives him more job opportunities-for himself and his family. Be careful with these UNZA chaps bane, they are just doing sample studies on you innocent citizens. Applies to UNZA Nawakwi too, what was the purpose of trash talking HH? Yielded any benefits for citizens?…

  29. Some of us had a low opinion of this man long ago but in Zambia people support those they don’t even know mungulu mungulu

  30. I have to agree with this assessment of HH… I have been saying this on this blog for few weeks/months now. HH’s failure to move and enact meaningful changes is quite disappointing. Just lip service with no action whatsoever. Either his judgment is poor or he has bad advisers. If only he just went straight to getting rid of that POA ; DOP and other bad governance laws, he would have scored some good points already from his critics like Dr Sishuwa. You don’t need to prosecute “insulting” using a criminal justice system (use the civi courts to seek libel and compensation).
    He could have sent a representative to this Book Launch of his friend or just appeared via Video link.
    At this rate, this HH guy would end up worse than incompetent, [email protected] Lungu. His supporters’ yardstick is…

  31. LACK OF MORALS! MOST OF SUCH UNZA LECTURERS ARE WELL KNOWN FOR THEIR SELFISH SPIRIT . AND IN EACH NEW GOVERNMENT THEY ALWAYS BECOME OPTIMISTIC TO BE APPOINTED JUST BECAUSE OR THE TITLE ‘ RESEARCHER’. BUT IN MOST CASES THEY’RE LEFT OUT BECAUSE OF THEIR KNNOW EGOS, IT IS THE ASPECT OF LEAVING THEM THAT MAKES THEM TO BACK BARK
