HH

Press statement for immediate release by the UPND Deputy National Youth Chairman Gilbert Liswaniso

WE ARE ORGANISING A THOUSAND CAR CONVOY TO MPIKA TO BACK HH

We wish to heartily welcome the invitation by the Zambia Police to summon President Hakainde Hichilema to Mpika for questioning and as usual, over a matter he has no hand on. This time around however, HH is not going alone, a thousand cars from all over the country will join him and as we drive along, more and more cars and buses will follow us.

We have had enough of this nonsense and abuse of one man by Edgar Lungu, and the one sided law enforcement by Zambia Police of only one section of the population, while leaving the PF supporters and cadres enjoy unfettered protection of being above the law. IG Kanganja must therefore arrest the thugs that closed HH’s route with rocks and tyres and further, discipline the Police officers that abetted such a criminal act in a public road and in full public view. The pictures are in the public domain.

We call upon those that will not make it to Mpika to hold peaceful protests in their Townships and villages and all Pronvicial capitals and districts. We further call upon our brothers and sisters in the diaspora to hold peaceful protests at Zambian foreign missions and send a clear signal to the International community that if they don’t intervene timely, the once peaceful nation of Zambia is headed for troubled waters.

The police call out of HH is not by the Police, but is under the instigation of Mr Edgar Lungu. How much more can one human being spew so much hate and bitterness against another human being like Lungu is doing to HH. What sin has Hakainde Hichilema committed to be persistently abused, persecuted and humiliated? Is the death of HH what will finally make Mr Lungu happy? Is it a sin to aspire for public office for HH in a so called democracy?

We are aware that the PF want to detain HH to harm him so that he dies before the 2021 elections. Mr Lungu himself has maintained that HH will not enter State House. Isn’t that a declaration of a death sentence? We won’t allow that!

We will also not allow this injustice to continue because Zambia doesn’t only belong to the PF and their supporters. We therefore warn them to desist from always making people angry in the midst of such poverty and hunger. People are suffering because everything under the PF has collapsed, and instead of fixing the mess they are subjecting our citizens to, they are always seeking for ways to make us angry. What sort of people are these?

We will meet in Mpika and please Kampyongo and Kanganja, don’t forget to bring along your newly acquired huge armoured vehicles and big guns, let’s hope they will be enough to go round in all Townships villages and Districts in the Republic. Enough is enough!

  1. It seems there is a new traditional ceremony in mpika district Zambia, everytime HH passes through or talk on local community radios there is all this hullabaloo in the district like the kuomboka ceremony is going on, maybe the new traditional ceremony in this district should be called Hecki Hecki as they profoundly mispronouncing his name.

  2. You can’t expect adults to be treated like non thinkers to be abused at will. There will always be the last straw. They used to teach us never to play with fire. Fire will burn you. The best policy is to live in peace and harmony with everyone. Don’t keep on poking your finger in other people’s faces. One day that finger will be bitten off.

  3. Everybody got to be part of this. We got to take full advantage of this CLIMAX OF INJUSTICE AGAINST OUR LEADER. AND THE ACCOMPANYING CLIMAX OF ANGER WITHIN US. And we are backed by Edgar’s previous pronouncements that HH will never enter state house. That is powerful excuse for the escort. Secondly we are backed the baselessness of the accusations levelled against HH. Few days ago, we wanted to go a peaceful demonstration of the Youth, but they refused us. This powerful excuse we now have…the excuse that HH has done nothing but is being summoned, and the excuse that after all we know that Edgar wants HH eliminated…, what more SPARK DO WE NEED B4 WE SET THE DRY BUSHES COUNTRYWIDE ABLAZE. LET THE CALL FOR HH TO GO TO MPIKA BE TRANSFORMED INTO THE DEMONSTRATION THEY DENIED US RECENTLY. THE CONVOYS MUST COVER THE ENTIRE ROADS FROM LUSAKA, KITWE, NDOLA, MANSA ALL THE WAY TO MPIKA. LET THE CONVOYS BE PEACEFUL UNTIL AN IGNITION TAKES PLACE. THERE WILL BE SILLY POLICE BEHAVIOUR SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY AND THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO SET THE BUSHES ABLAZE. HH MUST BE PRESERVED FOR 2021 AND BEYOND, MUST NEVER GO MPIKA ALONE. HH HAS NO ARMY, HAD NO POLICE TO PROTECT HIM. IT IS ONLY US THE PEOPLE. IF ANYTHING, THE IG GOT TO BE FORCED BY THE SHEER SIZE OF THE GATHERINGS, THE DETERMINATION AND THE CONVOYS TO REVERSE HIS CALL OUT. TRULY, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, EVEN A FRIGHTENED DOG FIGHTS BACK. LET TUESDAY BE TUESDAY. WE ARE ALL BEHIND THE IDEA.

  4. Obviously this is not the Zambia we want were real thugs are protected and the innocent are abused at will by those are expected to protect them.

    What is the Police doing about those who blocked a public road in an attempt to stop the UPND entourage from using the road?

  5. This is not the PF Michael Sata formed and fought for. It was PF to change the living conditions of Zambians and not fighting one another. MICHAEL forgive those who wronged him , always reminding those who wanted to be the most royal lieutenants to him, ‘ did he insult you or me? ‘
    He saw the power of forgiveness and love as a seed of the teaching of Jesus , people will only know you , you are mine is through love
    Lungu please tamed these trigger cadres of yours as when zambia is on fire, the same thugs will come on u

  6. The worst party to ever rule this country.we are tired of thugs making the rules and getting away with stupidity.make it 5000 cars.pin yachepa.lets send a message to the mwankoles.sadc is useless ,they are quiet and watching and not speaking against injustice.so it’s up to us zambians to stand up for ourselves against the new colonialists.thugs are being helped by police and innocent citizens being abused .stop abusing us.
