HH being used as an imperialist puppet, lackey to fight China, Russia by the US

Share

By Fred M’membe President of the Socialist Party

It’s very clear that Mr Hakainde Hichilema is being used as an imperialist puppet, lackey to fight China, Russia and all that is progressive, and revolutionary in our country. Whereas Mr Hichilema wants to hide the fact that he is an imperialist puppet, his masters are very proud to make his role in their scheme of things known.

Why should our government, our country be used to fight China? Why should our people be drafted into this United States’ anti-Chinese Crusade after all that decent, generous, humble, humane people has done for us? Our country has always pursued a progressive non aligned foreign policy. Our people would certainly refuse to be drawn into this new United States-led Cold War Mr Hichilema is aiding. Our people have always had good and dignified relations with successive United States administrations and the American people and not that of puppets.

Mr Hichilema is a disgrace to Zambia and Africa – a 21st-century Mobutu. They are saying that Mr Hichilema is “…a strong leader and bright spot for democracy in Africa”. A strong leader can never be a puppet of imperialism. A strong leader defends the dignity of his people, the sovereignty and territorial integrity of his homeland. Mr Hichilema has sold out, hired himself out to imperialist interests. Today, through Mr Hichilema’s treachery and betrayal, United States’ AFRICOM has established an office in Zambia. For what? “…to curb China’s malign and predatory influence in Zambia, as well as increase cooperation with the US”! This is what the Americans themselves are telling us.

Today Mr Hichilema has signed a deal with the Americans to give them our cobalt and other critical minerals at the exclusion of China and others. This is what they are praising Mr Hichilema for. Mr Hichilema, like Mobutu before him, has no democratic credentials to be praised or honoured for. He is nothing but a tinpot dictator and shameless imperialist puppet.

Our country cannot continue on this shameful, disgraceful path. We have no sensible alternative but to work very hard, tenaciously and unite our people and put an end to this disgrace, treachery, and betrayal in 2026.

  3. Why is democracy right when it’s in the hands of the only nation ever to use nuclear weapons on another country on this planet? This HH should know better, he was around when Anglo-American came and destroyed our mines in the hope of forcing our government to hand them over for free. Well, it was the Chinese that came to our rescue and resuscitated our fledgling economy at the time and nobody talks about that. HH is underestimating the mood of the country and thinks everyone will buy in his rhetoric.

    • Spaka, at 7.4, I am failing to understand your view here. What did you expect China to do? And how does China come in?

  4. The USA, like Zambia had to fight for independence from Britain. So, why do you call the USA ‘imperialist?’ Where is the US empire? Meanwhile, there have been British, Russian and Chinese empires. Those are the imperialists.

    • Ba Dr are you sure USA is not imperialistic. In my humble observation interfering into other nations affairs is an indirect way of colonization. What did Gaddafi or Saddam for the USA to facilitate their removal from power. There interference has left the mid east in shambles. This a form of colonization.

    • @Dr, why do you use the Dollar to benchmark your currency if this is not imperialistic tendencies? For your information, white Americans and Europeans are one of the same thing. They are immigrants who committed hideous crimes against indigenous people of the Americas.

    • You are either ignorant of facts or just a suck up. Taiwan is an extension of the US military, with the sole interest being to block China’s influence. Read about Lee Kuan Yew’s dealings with the US who tried to bride and blackmail him. Singapore is what it is because of a strong founding father, not the US.

    • Chriwa……….

      It you that is ignorant…………

      There is no way tinay tiwan can block China………….infact more countries of the world don’t recognise Taiwan because of fear of upsetting China………..

      What influence of China can Taiwan block ??? Are you serious ?
      Or dull ?

  8. There is an element of envy in dr Fred Membe’s angry and emotional sentiments. Agony Membe’s chances of being president is like flying to the moon from Zambia. He needs to tame his hate emotions Zambians are enlightened democratically.

    • Walasa @Muna Dekhane, you hit the nail on it’s head. You can’t as an aspiring president of such a great peaceful nation harbour extreme levels of hatred for your brother. What of stranger’s?
      Control your extreme jealousy and envy, life is too short to be consumed by such vices.

  9. Guys , pls answer Spaka’s question above! “Give a country, jst one country that has prospered from Chinese help or working with China or Russia”. Pls answer the funso!

      even near to us Tanzania, where the late president JM refused most Chinese terms of investment

      Is what we mean………

      countries that refuse Chinese investment on Chinese terms.

  10. What is there is to get the benefits of good relations with the US, China, Russia, Turkey, UK, Greenland etc . All global powers have their own interests in terms of their relations with Zambia. Likewise Zambia should shredly put its national interests first in dealing with other countries (What is in it for us). This is how global political acterchure is. Unfortunately not so much room for Che Guevara philosophies these days.

  11. Check out video on YouTube where one Muzungu tells the kind that they have to keep Africa poor for their own good ….shocker!!

  12. WHAT A LOAD OF ILLITERATES ON HERE BLOGGING FOR THE SAKE OF IT !
    57 YEARS AND WE HAVE ACHIEVED NOTHING ON OUR OWN EXCEPT A HUGE DEBT
    BECAUSE WE NEVER NEGOCIATED WISELY

  13. It is so shameful to see this under five parading himself like that when his employers back home are sharing maize seed in Medas. It is a fact that he is just in another group of the so called fortunate fools on earth. For me the real president is the one that borrows money from whoever and develops infrastructure, such as health posts, roads airports and bridges. Forget about the rhetoric and semantics given by the man that claims to have borrowed money to build the Kazungula bridge when he was wallowing in opposition. Atase.

  14. This article goes way too far, M’membe must realize such uncouth language will sooner than later land his gay backside in hot soup! His patronizing and know it all attitude stinks and I for one find it vile! Sata was the worst president ever but because he was Bemba it was ok for Namakando. Munungu ni laleta ndataho!

  15. Comrade Fred has forgotten to say ” running dogs of capitalism” or maybe he fears the phrase… Just because USA likes to work with HH does it mean we need to block with 1980s dogma? Even KK worked with America and China and Russia simultaneously, what’s wrong with that?

  16. It is so shameful to see this under five parading himself like that when his employers back home are sharing maize seed in Medas. It is a fact that he is just in another group of the so called fortunate sauls on earth.
