President Hakainde Hichilema is a liar who has failed to fulfill his several campaign promises-Lubinda

Share

Opposition Patriotic Front (PF) acting President Given Lubinda has said President Hakainde Hichilema is a liar who has failed to fulfill his several campaign promises.

During a media briefing in Lusaka on Thursday, Mr. Lubinda said President Hichilema is a non-performer but a motivational speaker.

The former Justice Minister and Kabwata Member of Parliament said it was astonishing that President Hichilema believes in his own lies.

Mr. Lubinda said President Hichilema lied that his Government would reduce the cost of mealie meal, fuel and fertiliser.

He said President Hichilema has demonstrated through action that he lacks experience to run the government.

“Those of us like me who have known Hakainde Hichilema for many years, know him as a motivational speaker but not a performer. Even then we knew what more Zambians are coming to know about him now that the man believes in his own lies. Once he tells lies, he believes it and convinces himself that it is true. I am not saying these from without. I don’t mean to demean the President but the truth of the matter is that he makes himself believe his lies. I will give a few examples in case someone wants to quarrel with me. Remember how convinced he was when he said these words:” Vote for me at 10:00 hours, at 14:00 hours the dollar will be at K10.” You know for some of us when you are saying something that you don’t believe in you can see it on the face but for Barry I have to respect him for the ability to tell lies in such a manner that he will convince you,” Mr. Lubinda said.

PF presidential aspirants Brian Mundubile and Emmanuel Mwamba attended the media briefing alongside former Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili, PF National Chairman Davies Mwila and former Chifubu Member of Parliament Frank Ng’ambi.

“Another example I can give you, how youths turned up on the queues to go and vote when he said the petrol price will reduce to K12 per litre because PF are stealing through their middlemen K3 per litre. I will reduce it from K15 to K12. When he was saying that you believed and himself believed. That is why I am saying he is a man who believes in his own lies. Remember, how convinced he was when he told all of us Zambians, October 2021 after I win elections the price of a 50KG bag of mealie meal will be K50. Imagine how he convinced farmers, even people in the rural areas they turned up to vote because the man was convincing when he said I promise you farmers I will give you eight bags of fertiliser each. Remember what he said to farmers when I come, I will pay you K200 for a bag of maize. You know, in my life I have been taught one thing, if you want to convince others first convince yourself and if a person can convince himself by words such as these I have quoted. He convinces himself that I will reduce the price of fuel and when the time comes have you reduced it? Then he says PF. Then you should know that person qualifies to be called BMW, in Tonga it says Barry Muntu Wabubeja,” Mr. Lubinda continued.

He challenged the relevant authority to arrest him over his comment that President Hichilema was a liar.

“Barry muntu wa bufi let them come and arrest me,” Mr. Lubinda added.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lubinda accused President Hichilema of interfering with the works of the judiciary.

He said the head of state interferes with other arms of government as evidenced by his warning to his rivals when appointing the Director of Public Prosecution.

On the International Monetary Fund (IMF) deal the UPND Government signed, Mr. Lubinda said the deal was far from benefiting the Zambian people.

Mr. Lubinda further commented on the shortage of medical drugs in health facilities and the late delivery of farming inputs for the 2022/2023 farming season.

  1. This poor where of a political Party that was in government. You must say how you left Government coffers. PF must be a grown up Party not relaying on Champaign material but how they left Government with so much and how they did not print excess moneys.
    We need fresh PF Leaders and not these who are failing to defend their rule in Government.

  2. “………Vote for me at 10:00 hours, at 14:00 hours the dollar will be at K10.”……

    You don’t understand world economics and geopolitics lubinda…………

    Markets have been know to move on election of a certain leader…………up or down depending on his recored.

    With HH, the kwacha would have gained against the dollar, but it suspected the PF were hiding the true extent of china borrowing…………..

    And the extent of the damage caused by 10 years of PF became transparent after the 2021………….

    Wiping out any positive gains based on any leader would bring to the table………….

  8. Don’t attack Lubinda respond on the issues raised is he saying the truth or day dreaming just as your leader? Let’s be objective in critising how much is fuel today when there are no middle men, how much is fertiliser and mealie meal may be am blind and not seeing anything

  9. Looking at the comments above, I hereby would like to provide a private members bill in parliament to reintroduce the defamation of the President law so that the PF who told us in 2011 that they would be more money in our pockets more jobs and lower taxes and delivered nothing in 10 years and are now blaming others for empty promises which themselves did not even fulfill can regulate the tone of debates

    • Not to mention that fuel will be 5 kwacha from Saudi Arabia!
      If you live in a glass house don’t throw stones. But these are a bunch of people with no shame. Still believe Zambians made a mistake but I have news for them- no sir and what we have is still better.

  11. RESPOND TO THE ISSUES OUR BROTHER GIVEN HAS POINTED OUT YOU UPND FAGGOTS.

    The Zambian economy is in a comma , and yet this joker HH is busy posting condolences about pele, a Brazilian footballer. Lack of priorities.

  12. Kaizar Zulu. Let me correct you. Pelé represented a sport which we all love. Unlike you who
    without even feeling shamefull but intoxicated with drugs and alcohol jumped on the football field to interrupt a football much. That day Kaizar Zulu I felt very embarrassed by your behaviour.

    • It was under pf that zambia made history and won afcon for first time. Tell me what upnd has achieved in sports chicarla! You cannot take away from that big pf win by citing a small misunderstanding on the pitch. Fuseke

  13. Not to mention that fuel will be 5 kwacha from Saudi Arabia!
    If you live in a glass house don’t throw stones. But these are a bunch of people with no shame. Still believe Zambians made a mistake but I have news for them- no sir and what we have is still better.

  14. Lubinda is one of the greatest liars in Africa. Remember widows, orphans and retirees spent nights, weeks and months by his office and just kept on telling them lies over their own money.

  15. Here is a man who was justice minister when zambia witnessed its worst cases of political and tribal violence including gassing of citizens by PF thugs…….

  16. Little brains like Lubinda will always hold you to ransom for what you say off- the- cuff at a political rally..PF said these things themselves like more money in pockets and less tax.Mr Lubinda and that gathering ,you should know what is politicking and what is practical..You can only hold a party or their president by reference to a party manifesto and policies. .Please,all of you PF,,disband and go home.Stop this nonsense

  17. Let us get rid of automatic days of national mourning and state funerals when a former Cabinet Minister dies. A majority of them do not deserve it. They messed up the country and then the tax-payer has to foot the bill for their funeral?
