President Lungu

By MacDonald Chipenzi

The continued use of brutal tools to silence citizens will lead Zambia be isolated internationally.

The current regime has a duty to deem the tattered democratic image of Zambia in the region, on the continent and the world.

The continued use of brutal tools to silence citizens will lead Zambia be isolated internationally.

The current regime has a duty to deem the tattered democratic image of Zambia in the region, on the continent and the world.

Being in leadership esp. elective leadership requires wisdom, tolerance and preservation of national pride.

The continued defensiveness on the part of the governors that all is well despite groans of fear, poverty, unfriendly economy, lack of money and employment is ostrichic behaviour of burying their head in the sand leaving the entire body exposed.

It is our country being destroyed democratically. The use of police to silence citizens and esp political opponents is eviil and undemocratic.

If this undemocratic trend continues unabated, Zambia would soon be a democratic desert , an oasis without peace and an island where democrats will be shy to visit or associate with.

Therefore, those who are to advise, let them reach out to the ears of the governors and whisper to them that “our democracy has died”, we need to resuscitate it

  1. Watching the Elias Munshya’s video on Facebook relating to the HH Treason Case its very clear that Lungu is abusing State Machinery to punish HH and his workers for Political Reasons rather than Legal.Lungu is going to come under tremendous Pressure to drop these fake Treason Charges.Lungu is entrenching Dictatorship in Zambia and should be stopped. If Lungu gets away with this abuse of State Power then today it is HH and tumoro its u and me.Lungu should drop these Trumped Up Treason Charges and unconditionally release HH and his workers from Remand Prison.Period.

    • You do not need Munshya to show you the video – it is everywhere, just develop you own opinion.

  3. Lungu took a huge gamble on imprisoning HH on Trumped Up Treason charges. He was hoping to keep HH in Jail and kill the Petition and the Petitioners Politically. Lungu will be brought under International Pressure to release HH from Jail unconditionally. The International Community has realized that the HH Treason Charges are fake and Lungu is using the Charge coz its unbailable and he wants to keep HH in Jail to cripple him and UPND Politically. Lungu is abusing his position as Head of State as well using the State Machinery to destroy his Political Opponents. Lungu and PF know that HH did not commit Treason but they need to eliminate him politically and entrench his newly found Dictatorship. The International Community has seen thru Lungu’s devious plans and will unite to isolate Lungu. The Financial Institutions including the IMF will not finance his Dictatorship and in particular the persecution of HH and workers thru Prosecution. Even within Zambia and PF now realise the rising Lungu Dictatorship.They know that when Lungu is finished with HH they will become the next victims of his persecution.Lungu has made too many enemies and this will backfire on him and his illegitimate Regime. Lungu will have to yield to International Pressure and Release HH unconditionally from Jail and open Dialogue with him. That Dialogue will have to deal with the Disputed and Petitioned 2016 Election. The problem will not go away so Lungu will have to show leadership by solving the current Election Dispute.

  4. Lungu has no clue of how to govern. Instead of solving the problems faced by the country , he has embarked on the road to dictatorship and he is bent on dismantling the democratic institutions that Chiluba had fought hard to restore from the dictatorship of KK.He has failed to rule because he is the most stupid person ever. He became president thru the back door.

  5. There is nothing special about one Hotel Hotel(HH. There are a lot of people who are in remand facing different charges some have been there for years, why you people don’t talk about them? Is this what you call ‘fairtness and equit?’ Why do you only keep on talking about one person as though he is the only person in jai? Let us critisize issues fairly for the betterment of all who may be in need. I find it difficult to uphold some of these malicious comments for they lack merit not until you people view every person in prison as equal who need equal attention from those concerned.
