HH addressing a rally in Kafulafuta

By Masinga Khumalo

 

Not all great leaders made it to the presidency of their respective countries. Men such as Harry Mwanga Nkumbula, Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe, Nalumino Mundia were far greater in intellectual and leadership capability than KK, but their contemplary Kaunda ended up leading the country instead of them.

 

Arthur Wina and Akashambata Mbikusita Lewanika were some the best brains  amongst the pioneers of MMD but FTJ Chiluba ‘hijacked’ the party and became republican president instead. AKA and Arthur Wina are still recognised for the roles they played in bringing about multiparty democracy in Zambia. Actually Zambia has mostly been led by wrong people, that’s why we find ourselves in the mess we are in economically.

 

In South Africa, OR Tambo once led the ANC but did not make it to the presidency of the Republic of South Africa. He still remains an iconic figure in South Africa and the main airport in Johannesburg was named after him.

 

Similarly, HH has struggled to become president of Zambia due to circumstances beyond his control. He lost elections on 4 occasions and on his fifth attempt he made it but was robbed of victory by a highly compromised electoral commission.  The same officials are now scampering and resigning from the electoral commission, which shows that they did something which is unsettling them.

 

If the current politics of discriminating against each other going by the color of our blood continues, HH might end up not being president of this country. But this is something our people will regret with time.  Indicators are already there which are showing that those masquerading as our leaders have no idea of how to develop this country but are just there to make money for themselves.

 

HH is a great leader whose talent this country would have benefitted from, but certain sections of this country are pretending not to see all this. I can bet that these same people will honor and praise him when

he is gone.

  1. The truth of the matter is HH destiny is in the hands of God l think it is wrong and too early for us to say that!!!!The man is intelligent and talks sense but my tribe and my Mbuyas are so brainwashed in VISIONLESS leadership once they are given a bribe that is enough for them,,Actually HH is the best candidate amongst all but because of voting on tribal lines he is not ushered on but as for 2016 elections HH won and he should be given his rightful seat ..YOU MAY HATE HH BUT THE ECONOMY NEEDS HIM ILLEGAL LUNGU HAS NO CAPACITY TO TURN THIS ECONOMY HE HAS DESTROYED MARK MY WORDS

    • THIS NONSENSE OF HH having won the 2016 Elections is becoming boring.For starters, at every polling station in this country UPND had its Polling Agents who got the actual votes counted after the Polls had closed.What therefore is the problem for UPND TO TABULATE actual votes counted per Constituency from their own records and match them against the declared votes by ECZ.The Mast is a Newspaper that would be very willing to tabulate this electro data for them.Courts have not been helpful to the wishful thinking of the UPND.The ball is in UPND’S Court to publish their own results so that we can see how PF store their votes.

      • If HH lost clearly, why is PF and judiciary delaying in allowing the petition to be head. If this was the case the case would have ended a long time ago.
        But we all saw what happened,opposition ballot papers been stack in dust beans and not added to the totals, missing GEN 12 forms and were been written at Mulungushi, voter turn out more than the registered voters, erroneous results and many others, we have never seen the such election in Zambia. Now we are hearing there is massive resignation at ECZ, WHY? I leave it up to you to think.
        I think surely there was something very wrong with the last election. As long as the petition is not head we will not know.

    • Unfortunately, these the people who continue to drag poverty along our country, because once they reach the trough, they want to continue eating at the expense of the greater vision Zambia needs ….

  5. Well, okay lets leave HH’s destiny in God’s hands and keep wishing him well for I still applaud him for those he has supported and continue to support in different ways like we learnt not long ago about a celebration he had with graduates that he had supported through university! In a way in this vein its already an honor for he is assisting building numbers of skilled Zambians to play a role in national development!

  10. I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS THE WAY MASINGA HAS PUT IT SUCH THAT SOMEONE IS FAILING TO UNDERSTAND SIMPLE ENGLISH USED. IN OTHER WORDS THE MAN IS SIMPLY SAYING THE SAME PRAISES ONE GETS TO HEAR AND LEARN OF DURING FUNERALS IS THE SAME ONE THAT WILL BE EXTENDED TO HH. IT’S LIKE DRESSING SOMEBODY IN A BRAND NEW SUIT WHEN THEY ARE DEAD BUT FAILED NEGLECTED REFUSED OR IGNORED TO ASSIST SUCH A ONE WITH K100 FOR A BAG OF UFA. SIMILARLY HH HAS OFFERED HIMSELF FOR LEADERSHIP BUT HAS BEEN BLOCKED TO TAKE UP THE PRESIDENCY, WHEN NO MORE SOMEBODY WILL WANT TO EUGOLISE HIM. TYPICAL OF HUMANS.

  11. One or two tribalists have have stopped blogging and their places have been taken over by a new one, in the name of Masinga Khumalo.

    Even a blind person knows that there was looting at ZNFU, but because it was a Tonga who was at the fore front of looting, Masinga says that there was no looting.

    Dr Kaunda won elections because at that time, he was the best candidate.

    Dr Chiluba did not hijack the MMD, he beat Arthur Wina at an MMD Convention in 1991. He, thereafter, went on to win the general elections of 1991.

    As for HH, who was he before privatization?
    NOTHING

    Who was and who is he after privatization?
    ONE OF ZAMBIA’S RICHEST PEOPLE

    Where did Mr HH get the money he now has?
    PRIVATIZATION

    MASINGA! Why are you wishing HH dead?
    YOU ARE A SATANIST

  12. The people who are talking of tribalism, not allowing the hearing of the presidential petition and some trivial issues of one leader winning and the opposition losing, why do you fail to face the facts of proving what actually transpired during the elections through petition hearing and shame the devil. Those who are sensible and want to waste no time to help develop this nation please allow the petition to be heard so that those claiming stolen victory can be ashamed and silenced and concentration is put on the national development. we are tired of hearing such things as not recognizing the Lungu administration and the witch hunting of who has said what against the president and what punishment suits who,wasting time for people when every one has to contribute towards national development. NO NO LET US DO CORRECT THINGS THAT PROMOTE PEACE IN THE NATION IF WE CALL OURSELVES TRUE LEADERS OF DEVELOPMENT!!!

  14. Iwe Sekulu, you seem to rush to conclusions before proving, why are you afraid of proving through the petition hearing so that PF can be seen to have won genuinely? Champions are not afraid of proving that they are and this gives every one sensible doubtful as to whether your side is genuinely in power. So do not comfort yourself while avoiding proof.
