HH addresses first rally since release from prison

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema this morning addressed his first public rally since his release from from prison, with a huge crowd gathering to listen to him in Mbila area of Itezhi Tezhi District, Central Province.

In his address to the people of Mbila area, Hichilema announced that he remains committed to ensuring a united, prosperous and equitable Zambia, devoid of violence and hate.

And the opposition leader called on the country to unite more than before and stop any possible injustices in order to foster development.

Hichilema also thanked the people, the church, civil society organizations and the international community for standing up for him when he was arrested and detained for four months on a trumped-up treason charge.

He pledged to use his 127 days incarceration to turn around the country’s fortunes especially economic emancipation and governance.

The UPND leader has maintained that he holds no grudge against those who engineered his arrest and incarceration as he believes that if he is to pay back by punishing them, the country would not see the difference between him and those who tortured and brutalised him.

And Hichilema, who is in Itezhi Tezhi to drum up support for the party Council Chairperson candidate, Mr Shalooba, appealed to the people of Mbila to vote for UPND in the September 15 by-elections, while emphasising that UPND will provide exceptional leadership across all sectors of governance that is before, during and after being in government.

The UPND leader is accompanied by party chairperson Mutale Nalumango, who also stated that there is need of restoring the rule of law in the country.

And Alliance for Democracy for Development (ADD) leader Charles Milupi called on the people of Mbila to continue praying for the UPND president and the party in order to continue with the struggle for the country’s democracy.

      • The stupidity starts with your name you moron. Isn’t this one of the rallying cries that your moron counterpart was broadcasting on foreign land that there is no freedom of assembly in Zambia?

    • The permission to hold the rally is because of the bye election , remember in the beginning of the same campaigns , the police refused tho allow the opposition to hold rallies , after the complaint that’s when Kanganja gave the directive to allow the opposition to start holding campaign meetings , if you are pf and you do not follow the current affairs, you better keep quiet , it is not every one who is dull like you

      • Your dullness stems from the fact that you fail to realize that irrespective of the nonsense you have spilled, the opposition held a rally freely. So, what is your problem?

        • I think your biggest problem stems from inability of your pea sized brain to think out of the PF box. There are so many layers of freedom and holding a rally is the thinnest layer. YOU GOON.

  3. Lungu thought he had finished HH by jailing him for 127 days on Trumped Up Treason Charges. The man is 10 times more popular. HH is now a Freedom Fighter and a National Hero thanks to Sadist and Dictator ECL.

  6. Why is Jonathan Lungu not campaigning? Inonge Wina is campaigning for a PF candidate in the same area.With these massive numbers for HH madam Wina has no chance and has been silenced to say the least. Lungu is still embarrassed for incarcerating HH for 127 days on Fake Treason Charges. HH is now even more Popular than b4 and he is now a Hero. HH is a Godly person and stands for freedom and justice.#Let the Petition be heard in Court just like it was recently done in Kenya.

  11. I think mr. ECL has other more impotant work to develop itezhitezhi than campaigning in local gvt polls. U knw he is head of state other works cn be done by his juniors. Bt for hh he shld use the opportunity to popularise himself as a hero out of proson he doent hv other important work. Let him speak his lungs out who cares!
