HH on Hardtalk programme

Zambia’s leading opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has been hosted on a BBC popular World Service television programme, HardTalk.

Hichilema who is visiting London was hosted today and he described the programme where he was interviewed by Stephen Sackur as great.

The programme will again be aired tomorrow at these times:

04:30 GMT (06:30 Zambian Time), 09:30 GMT (11:30 Zambian Time) 15:30 GMT (17:30) and 20:30 GMT (22:30 Zambian Time) on World Service.

Hichilema becomes the second Zambian after late President Levy Mwanawasa to be hosted on HardTalk programme.

Last week Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called was conferred with Africa Freedom Award in South Africa.

Hichilema heads the opposition UPND. He made international headlines when he was incarcerated for 127 days on trumped up treason charges for allegedly obstructing a presidential motorcade in Mongu in April 2017.

  2. I listened to the inerview. It was just so , so, because Stephen Sackur was stereotpying about Africans. Sackur seemed to justify that because bad and wrong things happen in some African countries, this should be acceptable everywhere in Afica. That if people are jailed without cause, this should be acceptable everywere in Africa. His line of questioning could be termed as condescending and insulting!

    • Yeah, when you lend yourself to them seeking cheap publicity, that is what you render yourself to.

  3. HH acquitted himself very well. He clarified why he cant recognise Lungu as President. Until the Petition is heard and disposed off by an Electoral Court Lungu will remain illegitimate and illegal.Period.

  4. I also listened,nothing to amuse me.The man still want to heard and has taken his Kenyan counterpart way.At one point Steve got fed up and told him that we are just going around circles. He kept on saying rule of law through out when he knew he had no escape root. When asked if he was a democrat,he said confidently YES.It surprises me because he has never had a convention in his party.If he his that popular, WHY?

    • No wonder your name is Chaos sir. That was a great interview but depending on which part of your bread is buttered it’s easy to think otherwise.
