Its tempting but won’t be diverted to trivial issues – HH

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

HH with drinksHakakinde Hichilema says he will not be diverted in his fight to liberate Zambia by those trying to throw mud at him.

Hichilema who is the main challenger to President Edgar Lungu in 2016 presidential elections had issued a 24-hour-ultimatum to Times of Zambia or face legal action for accusing him of having critised Chief Choongo for welcoming Davies Chama and speaking in Bemba, the Chief yesterday denied ever speaking to Hichilema.

At the close of the ultimatum Hichilema who heads the opposition UPND says:

HH seated on matOurs is to provide a true, focused and God fearing leadership that will spend time fixing our ailing economy for the good and pride of all citizens who dwell in the country.

We know there will be huge temptations to divert our attention by drawing us into trivial and unproductive debates that will not address high electricity tariffs, high cost of living, high cost of fertiliser and other inputs for farmers, powercuts, job loses and lack of job opportunities for our people, especially the youths, quality and affordable education and health care etc.

We thus leave such debates to those to those idle minds that want to divide our peaceful and united people.

Our prayers to media practitioners in the country is to be on the lookout for development challenges people are facing. They should avoid championing archaic debates especially in modern Zambia.

We have put everything in motion for our envisioned robust economic transformation and diversification programmes that will benefit all our citizens regardless of their colour, religion, political affiliation, and other things that seem to divide us.

And we call on all our well meaning citizens not to be duped by those wanting to bring hate against each other in our peaceful land.

Have a great and productive productive day and God bless you

  1. HH is making a serious Mistake! He should atleast sue the PF to stop the defamation campaigns against him, otherwise he will regret in 2016 when bigger lies are made against him.

    Dont say we did not warn you – you are dealing with crafty politician who will do anything to win in 2016. The tribal card is very attractive right now so HH will do well not to ignore this. Put a stop to this by defending yourselves UPND/HH. Otherwise people will just believe those lies in the times of Zambia.

  3. Yes! It’ s time to find solutions to Zambia’ s many economic challenges which people like Davies Chama, Chilufya Tayali, Mbwaman Lusambo, Fatherless Frank Bwalya and others do not have and want to hide in the name of tribalism. Some people in this country are just paupers whose main interest is just to loot whatever little wealth the country is remaining with under the PF thuggery leadership – and we say no to this. If the PF government shall by mistake be given another mandate to run the affairs of this country next year for another five years, Zambia will be in an economic turmoil which we have never experienced before since independence. Currently, we don’ t have government officials but government vultures who just want to make sure that all the carcass is eaten and completed. They are heartless characters whom the Almighty God shall punish for looting the country to such an extent.

  4. I don’t agree with you Mr HH on this one. This issue is not trivial as you claim because it hinges on the long term peace of this country. With the tribal tag being put on you without ceasing by your enemies, it will be difficult for your to realize the issues of economic emancipation you are talking about because it will be difficult for those who vote on tribal lines to accept you at national level, hence making Chama achieve his goals. It is shocking that are trivializing and being insensitive on such serious issues and worse off is that you had threatened to take legal action after 24hrs. It is not a good political move to issue threats to your political opponents only to go flat.

    • I totally agree, this issue should not be trivialized. Mr. HH and the UPND you have your legal advisors, please let them do thier home work. Let the courts determine and the truth shall set you free. Chama et al, will learn a lesson from this. Courage,Sata used to go to courts through out his political career even as a President.

  5. I am UPND in and out with or without HH. I must say HH needs to realize that PF leardership does not mean well for the country and for HH as an individual. These people have been calling HH and the UPND a lot of stupid names for too long now. I think it will be important to sue them this time because the damage they have caused and continue to cause may be impossible to mend if we delay further.
    Why should we think that they will reduce on their stupidity? Look they asked us to go and urinate into the Kariba lake and now they are on something else. HH please for the sake of our party sue them today. We may regret our kind hearts later. I once again pray to you, your excellency to please prove yourself clean so that 2016 is well taken care of.
    Remember that among the many challenges you will have to fix next year is the silly culture of PF insults and lies. So, begin now, please Sir.

  6. People told Jesus to defend himself in so many ways, but He did not! certain things are better left to God. He is a better defender, and he does it in style! it may seem like God is not seeing nor hearing all these plans to hurt Hakainde, but he is very much aware. Take it to the Lord in prayer. Many are praying for you Mr Hichilema. Stay focused, do not look to the left nor right, but ahead.

    • My friend, this is not a spiritual warfare but a political one. HH’s response in this case can be said to be a political suicide when he could have gained a lot by going to court. These dirty politics being played by the fo.ols in PF do not deserve to be taken on kid cloves.

  7. Let HH sue Chama. UPND shouldhave a legal desk and so let that desk play its role. Funny children. kikiki

  9. I agree that it is wrong not to sue Davies Chama as most people only got the original story by DC and not the truth as told by the chieftainess Chongo who denied that HH’s scolding. Why can’t UPND or HH sympathisers sue Davies Chama on behalf of HH if it makes sense legally?

  10. If HH is not going to sue these idiots then he will late us down as supporters. It will be too late for him to heal these wounds the pf are putting on him. Take action now HH !! If you leave them just like that ; you will regret ba hh mark my words. More lies to come this is pf at work..

    December 29, 2015 at 4:23 pm

  11. Who ever is advising hh ; pliz let him sue these pf idiots on this matter.. Without sueing them ; They will continue and finally succeed with their lies .

    December 29, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    • Ba Chikamba – The problem is that through this statement he is telling you his supporters that the allegations are true and therefore it is not a good idea to sue because the political fallout on the part of HH will be irreparable. The supporters are too dumb to see this.

      December 29, 2015 at 9:28 pm

  12. HH should sue the PF idiots. The fact that the chief has denied the allegations does not mean you have been justified. Let the court of law justify and put an end to this madcow.

    December 29, 2015 at 5:08 pm

  13. HH is right….the chiefs have denied ever speaking to HH so why waste money on litigation…that’s like playing in the hands of the pf evil plans….

  17. cartierbraceletlove Glenn, how many times were Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and Ashcroft called evil? How many times were they called Hitler, Satan, Darth Vader, Sauron, traitors, criminals, murderers, un-American? You’re right that since the 1970’s more right-wing nuts have guns than left-wing nuts. But don’t claim the high ground.
