Did you know that HH is actually the richest Zambian ever? Even before late President Chiluba privatized the mines HH was already the richest man in Zambia. Infact, he never benefited anything from privatization because he was just a consultant.
If anything Zambians should thank HH for adjusting the prices of mines upwards by 4 times as opposed to how Chiluba had wanted to sell them.
Chiluba wanted to sell the mines at a chipper price but HH helped the country by objecting and advising the president to sell they at a 4 times higher price, and that helped the economy of the country not to collapse, hence Chiluba died a man who had full respect for HH because of how he helped Zambia.
Zambia would have been the poorest nation had it not been for HH who helped Chiluba not to under value the mines. HH became rich when he was just 21 because of cattle.
In the history of Zambia there has never been any person who is richer than HH. He is actually 20 times richer that GBM, 15 times richer than Kambwili, 10 times richer than the corrupt Edgar Lungu.
President Lungu is now the second richest man in Zambia, beating GBM in within two years not because he has businesses but because he steals directly from the coffers of Zambia. For example last year, he took all the money that was meant to buy medicine in hospitals. Now we are told 40% of what the fire tenders and ambulances costed is his. Infact 40% of every deal in government is his, hence he is now the second richest when when was number 125 richest in 2014 before he became president or at the time when Sata was dying.
