Sunday Chanda

 

Patriotic Front Media Director Sunday Chanda says the Zambian people are demanding for answers from Mr. Hakainde Hichilema on how he sold the mines on the Copperbelt not building a house for an Individual with evidence.

Mr. Chanda says whoever advised Mr. Hichilema to publicly announce that he will build a house to anyone with evidence of him selling the mines is ill-tamed.

He says the challenge by Mr. Hakainde Hichilema has just exposed how deceitful, crooked and hypocritical he is because he is failing to build a house for one of his lawyers who was evicted from her house, Martha Mushipe, for failing to pay her rent.

Speaking in an Interview on Saturday, Mr. Chanda said that he was shocked with the leadership of Mr. Hichilema because he did not accept responsibility.

Mr. Chanda has however, challenged Mr. Hichilema to instead state his role he played during the Privatization of the mines.

“We find Mr. Hichilema’s challenge to build a house for anyone with evidence of him selling mines laughable and at the same time regrettable coming from a leader like him. Mr. Hichilema must be accepting responsibility. The Zambian people are not interested in his crookedness anymore, but they want answers on the sale of mines on the Copperbelt that made thousands of Zambian people jobless” he said.

“Mr. Hichilema has showed us how hypocritical he can be, Martha Mushipe, one of his lawyers was evicted from the house for failing to pay rent. Why cant Mr. Hichilema build the house he is talking about for his lawyer? The person who advised Mr. Hichilema to declare that challenge is ill advised. Mr. Hichilema must start providing answers not challenging citizens” he said.

While appearing on Christian Voice Program on Friday, United Party for National Development leader, Hakainde Hichilema, challenged all the 17 million Zambians that if anyone had evidence of him selling mines, Let the person Present the evidence and in return Mr. Hichilema will build a fully furnished three bed-roomed house in Kabulonga

    Extract on Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) continues
    Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines (ZCCM) was sold in 1998 for a total price of US$627million, which was divided into 7 sections of which, Konkola Copper mine was $25million, Kansanshi Mine was $28million, Luanshya mine was $35million, Chibuluma mine was $20million and others.
    At this time, the prices of our copper had dropped from $2,300/ton in 1997 to about $1,500/ton in 1998 and remained at that level till 2003. The Government of Zambia was subsidizing the mines by approximately $1million PER DAY!! That was way too expensive to run the mines.
    Privatization of ZCCM commenced in 1996, after the government and the boards of ZCCM and the Zambia Privatization Agency (ZPA) approved the ZCCM Privatization Report and Plan presented by the UK based Financial and Legal advisors, NM Rothschild & Sons and Clifford Chance, respectively.
    On 11th of March, 1997, Fredrick Chiluba appointed Francis Kaunda to be Chairman of ZCCM Privatization team. He was hired based on two reasons given by the then President, (1). His knowledge on mining assets, and (2). Credibility with Investors in the mining industry.
    Francis Kaunda had close to 3 decades of experience working at the top of mine business in the country from 1974 to 1991 when he was retired without reason when there was a change in government, but his vast knowledge prompted Chiluba to call him back in 1997 to handle the Privatization Process.
    ZCCM Privatization team hired local experts and formed 3 groups during its transformation plan of 1998;
    – First group was to sell CORE assets, and this was headed by Norman Mbazima and John Patterson. ‘Core Assets’…an essential, important or valuable property of a business without which a company cannot carry on with its profit-making activities. A business would dissolve without its core assets, and companies that sell off core assets are usually liquidating and on the verge of bankruptcy.
    – Second group was to sell SUBSIDIARY assets, and this was headed by Hakainde Hichilema. ‘Subsidiary’…a company whose voting stock is more than 50% controlled by another company, usually referred to as the parent company or holding company. A subsidiary is a company that is partly or completely owned by another company that holds a controlling interest in the subsidiary company.
    – Third group was to dispose of miscellaneous items and this was headed by Mwila Lumbwe.
    For the legal Services, Elias Chipimo Jr., who graduated from Oxford University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Law, was hired. His main area was Corporate Law, Advisory work on Merges and Acquisitions, Privatizations and Capital market related work.

  2. Ba Sunday Chanda, I now know that your reasoning is bad and poor. HH was not in power and or in any government office. Yet you think HH was a super human being who every Zambian was just watching selling national assets at will?? Youmust be a very dull press director. As a Zambian just like all learned and patrotic Zambians we all know Valentine Chitalu was Privatisation Sells Chairman and his Deputy was Former ZCCM Chief Executive Francis Kaunda. Enock Kavindele was one other close member as goverment official. Find out more and learn more before talking about HH. The man is clean and if you think he is the one who was responsible when he wasn’t in goverment and not even minister or MP, then he is a great man the whole world must admire.

  3. It seems Sunday Chanda is the one with a clue how HH sold the mines that are now being resold by pf. Bring out the evidence and walk away with a house or it is the usual masturbation of ignorance

  4. sunday chanda must be taken to court answer some charges because he is wasting peoples time. the economy is bad and some one foolish is mocking the suffering masses. can you attend to some important issues concerning the lives of the people. your brother store some funds meant the volnerable people and you are enjoying.

  5. I thought the man refuted claims by most of us who thought he had a hand in the privatisation of the mines. He distanced himself from that and challenged anyone with evidence to come out and get a 3 bedrooms house. HH people want answers to questions they asked you.

  6. Sometimes we throw stones where we know our glass houses are exposed. Sunday Chanda, you, of all people should be the last to talk about this lie you have been trying to throw at HH. you know it is a lie and that is why you have never attemted to throw him behind bars as you have always done.
    when you know your brother has stolen and stolen the social cash transfer that the world is well aware of, you accuse an innocent person. If you have nothing to say, don’t throw yourself into the mud and mess yourself up.
    you are making a fool out of yourself and exposing your brother to more scrutiny.

  7. BY THE WAY SINCE THIS SUNDAY IS SO WORRIED ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF ONE MADAM MUSHIPE, THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE GET THE HOUSE THEN DONATE IT TO MS MUSHIPE. ISNT THAT FAIR.
    I AM TO COME ACROSS A SITUATION WHERE ONE WHO IS ACCUSED IS THE ONE PROVIDING EVIDENCE, IF YOU BELIEVE SOMEBODY STOLE ITS UP TO YOU TO PROVE THAT IS WHY RATSA NOW HAS SPEED CAMERAS WITHOUT YHEM NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ANYTHING ABOUT OVERSPEEDING COURTS ALSO ASK FOR WITNESSES SO CHANDA PROVE YOUR ALLEGATIONS WIN THE HOUSE THEN GIVE TO THE WOMAN YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT.
    BY THE WAY IN CASE YOU HAVE BEEN TAKEN BY THE BEAUTY OF THAT WOMAN AND THAT IS ONE MOTIVATIONAL REASON FOR YOUR NONSENSE THEN YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME BECAUSE SHE ALREADY HAS SOMEBODY IN LIFE. IN ANY CASE IS SHE THE ONLY ZAMBIAN HAVING DIFFICULTIES? AM SURE WITHIN YOUR PF THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WITHOUT HOUSES OF THEIR OWN AND ARE STRUGGLING MONTH IN MONTH OUT WITH HIGH RENTALS, AS A CARING PERSON YOU SEEM TO BE START FROM THERE BY HELPING THEM.

  8. Sunday Chanda, stop shedding crocodile tears on Martha Mushipe. Do you have evidence that Martha Mushipe was not paid for the legal services he provided to UPND and HH? If indeed you genuinely want to help Martha Mushipe assuming she asked for your help, then provide evidence that HH sold the mines. Once you provide this evidence, you can give the Kabulonga house offered by HH to Martha Mushipe. Avoid irritating decent thinking Zambians. As others have indicated you risk being sued by HH and perhaps even Martha Mushipe in case she never asked you to help her find a house.
