GBM with Lubinda and HH

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has sympathised with the Minister of Justice, Given Lubinda over his letter seeking clarity regarding the dialogue roadside meeting they held on 14th May, 2018 in Lusaka.

In a letter dated 16th May, 2018, Mr Hichilema states that *_meetings of such nature in other societies whose governance system is not at variance with divergent views would in fact be praised but that he fully understands the circumstances_* the Justice Minister, Given Lubinda is going through especially from the party he belongs to (PF).

In the same letter Mr Hichilema explains that the impromptu meeting did take place adding that as National leaders they discussed among other issues the dialogue process.

Further, the UPND President states that the leadership of the dialogue process (ZCID or Commonwealth) was discussed adding that he indicated to the Justice Minister that in order to break the impasse and progress this critical process in the interest of the nation, *the Church would be the right group to lead the dialogue process as a middle ground.*

This is contained in a letter delivered to the Justice Minister today, 17th May, 2018 from the UPND President.

  1. These people just bumped into each other by accident. Therefore, it does not qualify to be a meeting. In any case, there was no discussion, with only one side (HH) expressing an opinion and the other (Lubinda) saying nothing of substance, preferring to ask HH or his party to attend the ZCID-led meeting “…so that we can explain our views …”. Nothing else seems to have been said, according this letter. So, to me, this is far from qualifying as a meeting, it was just an accidental encounter. I do not even know why it is taking up so much social media and print media space.

  2. HH knows he is just playing politics. The problem with HH is that he does not know when to be serious and when to play. This explains why he has lost the elections 5 times. His brand of politics is what has earned him the nickname “under five”.
