Zambians Will Not Be Divided Under My Watch – HH

Share

President Hakainde Hichilema has warned anyone trying to divide Zambians on tribal lines that the long arm of the law will visit them.

The President says Zambia has enjoyed peace and tranquility since independence and that he will not allow anyone to divide the peace loving Zambians.

The Head of State was speaking when he addressed scores of Ndola residents who turned up at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport to welcome him.

The President arrived in Ndola at 12:25hours for a 2-day working visit to the Copperbelt Province aboard the Presidential jet.

Speaking earlier, Copperbelt Provincial Minister, Elisha Matambo informed the President that the province was grateful that the government is resurrecting a lot of things that were considered dead in the province such as the Shaft 28 mine in Luanshya.

  1. The civilised world has moved on from tribes.
    Rwanda learnt the hard ward about the evil of tribalism.
    So now, the official policy is, Rwanda rather accepted themselves as Rwandans, putting all their tribalistic differences aside.

  2. It’s up to you Mr President. The goings on are worrying. The police must be seen to be impartial. You may not be involved but people will not guess that you are not involved unless you make it cristal clear by ordering the police to act on each and every case that is reported to them fairly.

  5. Well said Mr. President that’s the spirit we enjoy peace since independence. Deal with any tribal hate talk from anyone pf, upnd, so etc. Don’t show favoritism. What happened to Kambwili was good. Should save as example.. Tell the police not to show favoritism

  7. Shall We Tell The President is an old film but it’s being replayed in Zambia. Those who benefit from HH can’t tell the president. Matambo will tell him people on the copperbelt are behind the president for fear of losing his job…we saw it with KK at the highest of the MMD. Please let’s protect Zambia by not telling True Lies.

    • Because the emperor’s new clothes can only be seen by his new cabinet. I think Mweetwa and Thabo K tailors them. Watch out for little boys who won’t shut their mouths as HH passes by.

  8. REALLY ba Bally? The nation is hungry & angry. It is of course divided, see your cadres & ministers, see the police, pipo are so scared bcoz they will be arrested. Anyone who complains are being arrested!!!!! It is now a police state. KK was right, a father knows his children & as for you, you are a king Saul. I knew it that pipo were going to make a big mistake if at all would vote for you, you are full of hatred, know-it all, your face countenance does not do a good job of hiding your bad heart sir. Change your first sir & pipo will unity.

    • you dont tolerate nonsense in a wake of demeaning the highest office. Everyone must work to curb the hunger situation including those in opposition not just the president. But if your role is to create anarchy and add on to the problems Zambia is facing, you will face the law.

  9. When you have a bad heart you know, there is always a witness within you that tells you you have a bad heart. HH your worst enemy is no one but your heart, change your heart & the world around you will change for your benefit. Anything built on lies, vengeance, hatred, division, satanic, tribalistic, xenophobic, racism & any form of discrimination will always end BAD, just think about it. Zambians are a peace loving pipo & do NOT deserve arrests & divisions that we are now seeing. Ukusamwa takwawama. I am no PF , i am a concerned citizen living in the USA.

  10. So far, evidence indicates that the Zambia Police Service is failing to act against hate speech perpetrators from Western, North Western, or Southern Provinces. The Police IG has been instructed not to prosecute these cases. In contrast, MPs Munir Zulu and Mabonga are being detained for highlighting the plight of the abducted JJ Banda. Yesterday, the compromised police service in Lusaka refused to accept a complaint from Umodzi Kumawa, who sought to report hate speech and threats of violence. Are politicians truly interested in keeping Zambia united?

  11. Sir, you ‘instructed’ the sec to cabinet to seize and sell all the VX cars bought when you came to power ? Check the record … not a single one was sold not even the one at zesco… you said service chiefs must stop using sweepers ? Your IG has a sweeper …act

  12. HH is the most unwise and inexperienced president Zambia has ever voted for. He’s failing to differentiate between political statements and seditious statements. HH in opposition accused ECL as a man behind gassing saga, did anyone accuse you of being seditious?
    The arresting of your fellow political competitors will soon boomerang in your face.

  13. Tribalism is now at every corner in every office every police cell every speech, every broadcast every ministerial appointment. After 50 years of unity

  14. HH has done exactly what Sata and KK warned Zambians against. Which Tonga has been arrested for hate speech. Under his watch, tongas and UPND members can insult other tribes as much as they want. When other tribes do the that same the police will be on their door steps the following day. As a nation, we do not need need this silly law the is for a certain section of society. The PF MPs that are being demonized only reacted to what UPND youths did. Has any of the UPND youths been arrested. We have pigs in animal farm where some animals are more equal than others. Meanwhile, there is 12 to 15hrs loadsheding, dollar rushing to k30, none GMO mealie meal on its way to k400.
