A truth harder to swallow

Filed under: Politics,Special Comments |


He is a family man, an economist, a rancher, a farmer, an investment manager, an investor, a butcher, has executive experience and exposure to hospitality, real estate and food industry. This vast experience cannot come by accident but by hard work. For one to have such a portfolio, free of shoddiness, it takes talent and integrity. This diverse skill set is the kind which can offer real leadership for Zambia. Where a president will delegate with a clear goal and supervise with an educated control. This is a reputation some cheap minded simpletons want to reduce using smear campaigns. The one they compare to, is a person who spent more time on casino tables than boardroom tables. I can’t 100% trust the talented guy but I have seen worse. I have seen widows swindled, the innocent chained, the sick shackled and the mourners hacked. I have seen leadership that watches on as brother turn against brother. A leader who claims to be a listener but when he opens his mouth, he is talking at people instead of talking to them. He knows his followers through the whispers of his henchmen, he fights dissent harder than he fights corruption. He has more dance moves than policies. Press conferences depend on his mood alone and not that of the people. You know him don’t pretend that you dont. The brave are inspired by success and the cowards call it satanism. The truth is hard to swallow, but when swallowed the stomach stops rumbling. Why are we teaching our children bad manners of supporting dancers and chancers. The late Sata died disappointed and having called these rascals useless MPs. They are chancers who rode on Sata popularity and they are dancers who just want the supporters to be sloganeering, puppeteering and electioneering whilst they get rich. Politician are nothing but actors and orators, its stupid to love any kind of politician. Politicians work when they are afraid to lose power, not when you defend them like your lives depended on it.

  1. “ONLY A TONGA MUST LEAD UPND” Says sejani. Mr. Richard W your analysis is warped and lopsided. You have not looked at the other side of the so called Mr.economist, investment manager HH. If HH is so attractive politically why is it that he has been rejected a record five times by the Zambian people and the person you say spent more time on the casino tables is today in the driving seat? The answer is very simple; Biblically let me refer you to the KINGSHIP of David, go and read it. In addition to this,this man has lamentably failed to account for his wealth, the so called Mr. economist is dented with so many scandals such as mismanagement of the privatization of the state owned enterprises, he is known as a very selfish man, just look at the most recent event of him fencing off 1600 hectares of land to the detriment of so many villagers. If this man can do this whilst in opposition what more if by GRAVE mistake is voted into power? The man is a pompous guy, a pure tribalist who poses a very big threat to Zambia’s peace and security. Moreover, this man is an under five as far as national governance is concerned; he has never been in government, a ward councilor, an MP let alone a minister. Mind you corporate governance is totally different to national governance. IF Mr. economist can do better in the corporate world it does not mean that he can make a good president. For your information chances of HH becoming the president are very slim, it is like trying to squeeze water out of a stone. He is losing miserably in 2021 just mark my words

    • Your argument is exactly what the author quoted as ” Failures in life accuse Successful people as Satanist” To me You fit well in a pack of failures in Zambia now depending on smear campaign to win favours from day light economic Saboteurs. My friend work hard and live your life, not rubbish and malicious allegations against a vivid successful Zambian. Rest assured am coming back for you if you continue being stubborn!

      • “ONLY A TONGA MUST LEAD UPND” says sejani. Wachepa sana mwaice in all areas you cant measure up to me. The truth always hurts KKKK come on sober up don’t be worshipping your angel and your small god HH. I don’t look up to any politician for survival I have already made it in life but I make sure politically I contribute positively not to be tribally inclined like many UPND supporters. For you own information I’m a luvale by tribe, therefore, a tribal cousin to TONGAS including HH. By cousinship I like HH but politically just like many Zambians he is not my choice and he will never be

  3. The brilliance of the article is what stimulates my often self soul searching questioning on the national trend of settling for less than that which exemplifies the spirit of success!

  4. Brilliant article. For those of us who knew HH way before he joined politics, this article enables any well-meaning person have a glimpse of the man we know.

    Due to his integrity and his attributes, he has earned and commanded respect as an international Consultant to the international community, including developed Countries. That’s a tall order to accomplish by any standard.

    Mother Zambia is in dire need of good leadership.
