We are going ahead with the election petition – HH

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |


UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has vowed that he is going ahead with the election petition contrary to reports making rounds that he has given up.

Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called says the political dialogue being spearhead by the Commonwealth that saw him being freed from trumped up treason charges has got nothing to do with him challenging President Lungu’s election.

There have been reports that the Commonwealth General Secretary had persuaded HH to forget the 2016 election where he is alleging that his votes were stolen and instead focus on enhancing the governance systems to create confidence for the 2021 elections through a dialogue with President Lungu.

But HH who is in the High Court that his right to be heard in the presidential election petition was violated by the Constitutional Court says the election challenge will not be withdrawn.

The UPND Strongman says the dialogue has to address the restoring of people’s human rights and giving credence to governance institutions which he says have been compromised by the Patriotic Front (PF).

HH said this in an interview at St Joseph Mukuni Parish on Sunday after a church service. He was at Mukuni Village to attend the Lwiindi traditional ceremony and the celebration of his release from Prison.

HH’s presidential election petition was dismissed on technicalities after the 14 days allocated to hear the presidential election petition lapsed.
