I’m a puppet of Zambians-HH

General News I'm a puppet of Zambians-HH

President Hakainde Hichilema has been annoyed by insinuations from his critics suggesting that he is a puppet of foreign entities.

Democratic Party (DP) President Harry Kalaba and Socialist Party leader Fred M’membe are among people that have branded President Hichilema as a stooge of foreigners.

Mr. Kalaba once said that President Hichilema cares more about foreigners and the rich at the expense of majority poor Zambians that voted for him during the 2021 elections.

But President Hichilema has described as noise accusations that he loves foreign entities.

Speaking during the 2022 International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking held at Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka on Tuesday, the Head of State said he was a puppet of Zambians.

“I am asking the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) to finalise in this respect the drug and substance control policy. Please finalise the policy, take into account international instruments which constitute the cornerstone of the international drug control system. Madam resident coordinator from the UN (United Nations) you could assist us, you could help us in that regard. On best practices but also working together on the steps that are required to conclude that piece of law. That will help us now to derive laws from regulations and domestic ethos. We cannot deny that we are a member of the UN,” President Hichilema said.

“I must say what I said yesterday (Monday) when we were swearing in and the UN aid colleagues visited us. The World Bank visited us. Young people separate between noise and substance please. I hear a lot of noise. Separate that noise from substance. I made a request to the DGE Director, a capable woman. I make a request to the UN Resident Coordinator, another capable woman. Tomorrow someone said HH believes in foreign entities. Aikona man. That is noise. That is politicking. The issue is that this is our own UN. We are the founders of the UN. We are members of the UN. It is our UN. That lady (UN representative) there works for us. Isn’t it madam? She is a civil servant. An international civil servant working for our UN based in Zambia,” he said.

President Hichilema said Zambia has a stake in international organisations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, United Nations and Commonwealth.

“So we are not asking a foreigner to assist or work with us. The IMF is not a foreigner, we are shareholders. We pay money. The World Bank is our own World Bank. That is why we want it to work with us. We want them to work with us but tomorrow you will hear the noise’ HH is a stooge of foreigners and imperialists’. I am not a stooge of the IMF. I am only a stooge of you people (Zambians). I love to be your stooge. So let’s distinguish noise and substance. Then we should all say we should not be involved in the African Union because it is a foreign entity. Should we not be involved with the Commonwealth? I am sending a message because young people are afflicted by this scourge that affects everybody including elders feeding young people drugs. So research has been done already on our behalf by the United Nations. So let’s work together. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be here (UN envoy Zambia),” he said.

President Hichilema further called for concerted efforts in fighting drug abuse.

“As a nation we can’t solve a problem we don’t acknowledge, and so the moving testimonies we heard from the victims of drug abuse really underscored our collective aspiration to fight this vice, which has far such horrible consequences. Illegal drug dealing threatens to disrupt our way of life and the security of this nation. Sadly, those most affected by this vice are our youth, whose future this nation relies upon. That’s why we called upon the Drug Enforcement Commission to finalise the Drug and Substance Control Policy, taking into account the international instruments which constitute the global cornerstone of the International Drug Control System. Illegal drugs can destroy families and tear communities apart. There is no place for drug traffickers in Zambia. We will find you. We will protect our communities, and our children, from the pain of addiction. If you think you are above the rule of law, you are wrong,” he said.

  2. Your Excellence, I’ve never seen you attend a book launch by any Zambian. The binoculars zoomed you at a meeting in lower ZAmbezi and the attendants were not the Goba of HRH Chiawa. Who is Greg Mills?

  3. It’s a well know fact that Mr president is a puppet to these white people, he is not a real Pan Africanist who can fight for our economic freedoms and liberties. Eg when he is addressing his own people who voted for him he wears those urgly white gloves and when addressing whites he does not wear those urgly white gloves or masks, so what kind of impression does that give?

  7. Talking to all these international institutions, flying around the world – but NO attention to the price of cooking oil, no attention to rampant corruption among the Zambian police. You are losing your own voters!

  8. Forget about IMF, World Bank, Commonwealth. etc. Tell us about Greg Mills, that’s what Kalaba and Fred have largely spoken about.

    • Those are his friends. Just like you,you have friends and they do not stop being your friends when you become somebody. HH is from the business world, so his friends are from the business world. The other one was a drunkard, so his friends were drunkards. So, what’s your problem

  9. No Corruption Zambia
    PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW YOU GET RID OF RAMPANT CORRUPTION ??
    ITS SEEMS TO BE A CULTURE NOW AND IMBRED ?
    YOU ARE CORRECT ABOUT THE POLICE, BUT EXCLUDE RTSA ZRA LANDS INFACT IN EVERY GOV INSTITUTION

  10. HH is not a puppet, he is just a guy who sales and sold to white people. How many things has he sold to white people? Zamtel and KCM are next. Why is he always on the copperbelt? This sales man.

  11. The trouble with some of our white friends is that their friendliness & cooperation only runs as deep as their needs dictate, & they firmly have you under their thumbs. Wait & see what happens when you refuse any of their demands…not nice to experience. Just bear in mind, they are not in it as a favour to you. Yes, we must work with them, but be clever too – don’t bend backwards too much all the time. You will break your “back” for little or no return!

    #plant a tree please.

  12. It is so sad that many of you who write comments has an inferiority complex when dealing with white people.
    Rather than seeing whites as people who you are equal to and can negotiate with on an intellectual level, you resort to the typical “I am a poor African, who has not got the skills to tell the other party what I want and expect”.
    Wake up you people and learn to negotiate and be assertive.

  13. KWENA FWE MA ZAMBIAN TULI FIPUBA SOMETIMES …..
    WE ARE NOW FIGHTING OUR OWN WHO SPENT DECADES LEARNING HOW TO FISH MONEY GLOBALLY WITH EXCELLENT EFFICIENCY NOW HE IS USING THE SAME SKILLS TO FISH WEALTH FOR MOTHER ZAMBIA, …. PLEASE IF YOU DONT COMPREHEND WHAT SOMEONE SUCCESSFUL IS DOING SPEND TIME LEARNING INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME HERE TYPING YOUR IGNORANCE.
    IF YOU WANT MONEY IN BIG BRACKETS YOU HAVE TO ENGAGE WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT IN THOSE BRACKETS BE BLACK OR ANY OTHER COLOR, IF YOU ARE HUNTING FOR GAME animals go where you can find the animals you want dont waste time hunting in the city. WE NEED TO BE TALKING ABOUT THINGS THAT BUILD EACH OTHER NOT DESTROY LIKE POLITICIANS IN THE PAST HAVE DONE….. NAME CALLING TO JUST DISLODGE OTHERS…..SO RIGHT NOW WE HIM TO STOP TALKING TO…
