Lungu and HH

President Edgar Lungu says UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is amongst the longest serving opposition presidents in Africa and that he would never leave State House if elected into office.

Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called has been at the helm of UPND since 2005. He has had five unsuccessful attempts at the Republican presidency.

President Lungu says he is happy that his party, PF is practicing internal party democracy by conducting elections.

He says since HH took over the leadership of UPND, the party has had no elections and that leaders are just appointed.

President Lungu says with that kind of altitude given an opportunity to be republican president HH would not leave.

He says Zambians have seen that it is only the PF that can be trusted with power. He adds that even after his tenure in 2026, the party will still win with whoever candidate to put.

President Lungu says HH talks about democracy when he has failed to practice it in his party and wonders how Zambians can trust him.

The Head of State was speaking in Kitwe where he officiated at the PF copperbelt provincial conference at the weekend.

  1. Talking about HH when you, yourself don’t want to leave office. You are corruptly using the courts of law, to
    consolidate your stay in State House. some time you should ask your self, how your statement would impact on the electorate.
