We have noted that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s desperation to put a lid on the so many questions Zambians have asked about the extent of his involvement in Zambia’s infamous privatization of national assets.
Mr. Hichilema has gone to the extent of offering a 3 bedroomed house to anyone who can provide evidence that he sold any of the Mines. It is shameful that Mr. Hichilema enjoys playing to the gallery while giving a blind eye to the plight of Martha Mushipe who have sacrificed so much for him.
Recently we read about her being dragged to court for failing to pay her rentals. It’s sad that UPND Lawyer Martha Mushipe had to suffer so much ridicule following her misfortune and yet the man she has sacrificed for without any tangible reward is arrogantly parading himself as a father Christmas “raining houses” on those that demand answers from him.
Our piece of advice to Hichilema:17 million Zambians want answers and not a house that could as well be a proceed of your involvement in privatization of parastatals.
We advice you to give that 3 bedroomed house to Mrs Martha Mushipe. She needs it the most. Be human enough to reward her sacrifice for you. In the meantime, answer the questions asked by 17 million Zambians.
