Guests cheers HH


Zambia’s leading opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has been conferred with an Africa Freedom Award in South Africa.

Hichilema who was recently incarcerated for 127 days on trumped up treason charges was conferred with the award Friday evening.

Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called heads an opposition party called UPND and he has since dedicated the award to the people in Africa living under difficult times.

Hichilema posted the following:

Fellow citizens,

We have been conferred with the Africa Freedom Award here in Johannesburg, South Africa, by the Germany led Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom.

It was a great honour to be invited to speak and later on be awarded, we are firm believers of democracy and freedoms of all citizens, therefore, we would like to dedicate this award to every African and Zambian who under very difficult times has joined the struggle for freedom and democracy, we salute the freedom fighters in Zambia, Africa and the Wolrd at large.

We also did participate in a discussion titled “The State of Freedom in Africa” at which we did present a paper work with solutions as regards to how Africa including our country can attain its freedoms and democracy wholly.

Together, as one, we can do great things, great things that can benefit our people on the African continent, we must unite as Africa, unite for our people against those that are working to stop freedoms and democracy.

We also remain grateful to the people of our country especially on their unconditional support they have continued to show to us even when the country is undergoing difficult times.

Freedom is not only being able to move freely, assemble freely, associate freely, demand freely, by the way in some countries even what we are calling “freedom” is not there, because freedom is not freedom when our people are still going hungry and cannot afford better meals except a few, freedom to us means being politically free, stable, peaceful and to a large extent economically strong.

We say thank you once more to Germany led Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF)-Annual Africa Freedom Speech and Award Ceremony for this award during this year’s event which acknowledges individuals who have made an extraordinary contribution to the cause of Freedom in Africa.

During this year’s speech and Award ceremony, we were joined by Mr Ismail Jussa Ladhu who is the Director of Foreign Affairs and International Relations of the Civic United Front (CUF) and Mr. Mmusi Maimane, Federal Leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA) as co-special guests.

We were accompanied by our party Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba.

God Bless our Country,

God Bless Africa.
