UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has alleged that there are desperate attempts by the Patriotic Front to weaponize fear in order to discourage Zambians from voting for the UPND.

Hichilema says the PF have tried all kinds of methods that have clearly flopped to sway the mood of a citizenry that is already resolved to get rid of them through the ballot in 2021.

He said fear that a UPND government will punish Zambians once voted into power, is not only unfounded but is heartless, remorseless and an irresponsible agenda that can only come from a government that is bankrupt of ideas on how to govern.

Mr Hichilema said using the fear factor in order to continue occupying positions of power, while plundering public resources for the benefit of a few at the expense of the majority of citizens, will not put food on the tables of many poor Zambians.

He said fortunately Zambians will not be deceived by cheap lies as they have ample evidence of mismanagement through unbridled corruption, theft of public resources, high fuel and electricity tariffs, high transport costs, unaffordable mealie meal and plain incompetence, by the PF led government.

  1. HH please take it easy. You are not the spoken person of the Zambians. Kindly do not behave as if you have already won the elections. Otherwise, your bitterness will minimise your life span or expectancy.

    • I feel bad for HH. I wished he could be president of this country in 2021. He is letting himself down focussing on wrong strategies. If I were him I would encourage my MPs to vigorously debate the bill 10 in parliament. I will also add my voice to the effects of climate change in the world . Show some level of responsibility other thatn just yapping anyhow.

    • Na mu 2021 UPND will be at the constitutional court. I therefore encourage them to study bill 10 in detail because it will be in force by then.

  3. Talking about one’s opponents rather one’s alternative policies is a sure way of confirming that one is indeed a greenhorn in politics.

    This can be a serious handicap for holding high office.

    Ba cembele do not forget to take off your business man’s hat when
    attempting to debate politics with the big boys.

  4. In all countries where there’s civilization, oppositions are freelance. They are free to talk on all things the Govnt is doing. its there role to bring checks and balance to the actions of the ruling.
    But those ruling seem to be too obsessed with fear. Any small move by opposition, the ruling is quick to stop them. This is the reason most ruling parties fall into oblivion when they lose because they have already destroyed their space for continued operation. Same police they used come back to haunt them. Draconian laws start visiting them. How can they complain because they are the ones who started it.
    We normally see those who wre in positions start jumping ship at night negotiating to be allowed to join the new ruling part. Thats how the Doras and others found themselves in PF from MMD and UNIP. Cadres do the same
    Hope UPND will open its eyes this time and not be hijacked

  5. Truth Banda, I totally agree with you. Some have become career politicians. Till the retire at 65 years old. From UNIP to MMD. From MMD to PF. Where to from PF? We don’t even know what the believe in. Each the sense defeat of the current, the start shift. The Doras and the Silveres.
