  1. The UPND’s biggest challenge isn’t broken promises but its paranoia. I don’t know what HH makes of the embarrassing incident in which the Joint Investigative Team exhumed the body of ECL’s former close friend on allegations that he had faked his death. Death is sacred and unless there’s a compelling reason should the deceased be exhumed. On what basis did they allege that he’d faked his death? Should they go to the extent of exhuming the dead just to satisfy their suspicion? Now that they’ve found him in his grave what are they going to do? I advise the UPND to begin to see things in their right perspective. And now we’re being told that the managers of the Zambian Watchdog have jobs at State House! Cry my beloved country

  2. You will fulfill the promises you made? After EIGHT months in power, the question is WHEN? Zambians are seeing NOTHING – cooking oil prices UP, fuel prices UP, transport prices UP, useless travelling by the president UP, empty promises UP. START DELIVERING!!!

  3. Please stop using the recruitment as an achievement. Each thousands of people retire from the government and we still have staff all the time. Why? It’s because recruitment has been going on. All you have done is to publicize the recruitment to make it appear that it’s happening for the first time. Aikona bwana this is a poor strategy.

    A court order was obtained to exhumed the body to obtain a DNA sample to assertain the real identity of the body………..

  8. President Hakainde Hichilema says the United Party for National Development (UPND) has made strides in delivering development that it promised the people. With this statement among others, Mr. President you are a visionary leader. Implementation and control is vital in ensuring what you are envisioning come to fruition. My wish for you is to ensure that your capable team supports you in execution of all your initiatives, document and ensure that people are benefitting through employment or creation of small & lucrative businesses, and all these initiatives are sustained to generate fiscus for the country through taxation and changes people’s lives in real terms through quality and reliable infrastructure development. Wishing you the best in delivering your manifestos.
