Hakainde Hichilema stated : “Every credible government, anywhere in the world prides itself on the number of electorates it delivers to the polling booth. That’s how democracy works. Ironically here, ECZ wants as few people as possible to vote. We will not accept that, after all it goes against the current law that provides for continued voter registration.

Hakainde Hichilema stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “In the usual PF style, the seven-page long and rambling Ministerial Statement presented to Parliament is full of a flowery and deceiving language. First, contrary to the sugar coating in the statement, the 2020 revenue shortfall will be K17.2 billion, of which ZRA will miss its target of K53.9 billion, by a staggering K6.9 billion. Secondly, despite the shortfall in revenues, the PF will increase the 2020 expenditure by K9.7 billion. This simply means that in 2020 the financing gap or deficit in revenues will be K26.9 billion,” “Thirdly, in the usual PF method, the only constant in their governance style is continued policy inconsistencies and reversals. Less than a month ago on 25 June 2020, Mr. Edgar Lungu informed the nation that his Cabinet approved the issuance of a COVID 19 bond to stimulate the haemorrhaging economy. And that the beneficiaries were going to be; retirees and those on the separatees payroll; suppliers of goods and services; and small-medium enterprises (SME). But in a sudden U-turn, the Minister of Finance has unilaterally decided to reverse the decision of the Cabinet and allocate the funds raised on; the Covid-19 economic recovery fund; payment of civil servant loan deductions to microfinance institutions that government spent on other activities after deducting the said amounts from our hard-working public servants; drugs and equipment procurement; grain purchases; and other unknown areas” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated ( about Range Rovers ) : “Cut all the unnecessary expenditures, starting with the large payroll for the politicians. It is unacceptable that you should add another K26.9 billion or $1.5 billion to the already massive and unsustainable debt. We are in this trouble because of this same reckless behaviour. The K3.2 billion you want to spend on the opaque presidential slush fund should be directed to SMEs through established institutions in a transparent manner. Spending this money on politically connected and exposed persons will not rejuvenate the economy through the creation of employment and payment of taxes by the deserving businesses. Range Rovers, vast numbers of houses without known owners and other luxurious purchases do not in any way develop the economy,” “Finally, for once learn to spend the money you hold in trust for the people in a transparent manner. Transparency and accountability remain the hallmark of good governance” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said : “Of great concern to us is that government expenditure continues to rise in the context of significant revenue shortfalls yet without major changes to the National Budget. The government recently announced that while revenues have fallen by K20.8 billion, expenditures have risen by K20.0 billion, including an increase in debt service by K8.7 billion. Current measures to address this shortfall do not go far enough. We implore the PF Administration to revise the 2020 Budget and undertake necessary reforms to make a real impact on lowering runaway expenditure,” External link

Historically, we have seen the creation of numerous technological innovations that have added value to humanity. Young people working out of garages in Silicon Valley and other parts of the world have created technologies that have transformed how we communicate, how we work and how we go about our daily lives.

We were on the ground assessing the situation and so far our findings are that we must take this hunger situation seriously. Just because Mr Edgar Lungu and his PF can afford a flight to Japan using public resources when mealie meal prices are unaffordable for the majority of our people, and generally the cost of living very high, does not mean all is well for our citizens,” “This is not a time for partisan politics and sectarian interests from all leaders across the political divide. We must be serious and put the lives of our people first before ours by ensuring no one dies from starvation out of the neglect of those who wish to withhold help for whatever reason. The possible loss of life due to starvation is completely avoidable as long as we all put our heads together to seek solutions to help those of our citizens that have been exposed to the hunger situation” External link

This country’s economy largely depends on many youths who work in the informal sector and their own self-initiated projects such as mending shoes, tyres, welding and many other jobs among them a youth selling airtime, a youth who takes up farming in order to raise school fees, and many others looking for an education and job opportunity,” “Our youths are capable and willing to participate in many economic activities in the country and this is why we will work with them by equipping them with necessary skills and opportunities at an early age. We draw this vision from our own experience of creating self-employment at the age of 26 years. We would therefore like to see more of our youths going that direction and then together we can develop this beautiful country” External link

To that end, ZCCM- IH obviously updated the PF and State House on an ongoing basis on the state affairs in KCM, but they took no action,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “We have no doubt that the lack of proactive actions that would have averted the ongoing crisis was motivated by personal benefits that the top PF leadership were enjoying from the ailing KCM at the expense of employees, contractors, citizens on the Copperbelt and the country at large. We are aware and have been advising our PF colleagues on many other challenges being faced by our citizens in other mining houses such as Mopani, NFCA, Luanshya Copper Mine and many other public entities, but as per usual incompetence, nobody wants to take proactive interventions,” “Our social media platforms inboxes are full of complaints from our citizens requesting us to intervene, but our people should know that we don’t hold any executive powers at the moment, and the least we can do is merely offer advice and alternative solutions. Ultimately, the real power lies in you our fellow citizens to determine the governance of our country, by either continuing with the same mediocrity and incompetence, or change the course of action.

Where is the integrity and morality in keeping an allegedly corrupt person on your administration? Yes, the law may provide for that, but why did you not apply the same principle when Emerine Kabanshi was embroiled in the ZAMPOST Social Cash Transfer saga if your motive is not to aid and abet corruption? Same game and different rules, these are signs of your weak presidency Mr. Lungu,” “As we demand the repayment of the K10.6 billion (about US$1 billion), which your colleagues have stolen in the last two years, we also demand that you immediately introduce amendments to the Public Procurement Act among others, to prohibit participation of shell corporations in public procurement. This is a key channel through which money is being stolen. Amending the Public Procurement Act was actually one of the promises the PF Government made in 2017 as part of the structural reforms towards fiscal fitness.

Analysis shows that despite the Government’s excessive spending since 2012, Zambia’s Incremental Capital-Output Ratio has deteriorated continuously, showing increased inefficiencies or poor investment quality during the PF era.

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “Austerity was repeatedly announced in 2016, 2017 and 2018, but with no serious intent to change policy behaviour. Here we are again with the Cabinet making the same old announcements. But we are not the only ones who are worried about the PF’s lack of seriousness. Last week, International credit rating agency Moody’s downgraded Zambia’s credit rating and revised its outlook to negative. In parallel, the IMF issued a statement saying: ‘However, the latest borrowing plans provided by the authorities [Zambian] continue to compromise the country’s debt sustainability and risk undermining its macroeconomic stability and, ultimately, living standards of its people’,” “The IMF said this, going on record that the PF Government is undermining the living standards of its people! Most likely, the PF will soon say: ‘unpatriotic HH has told Moody’s and the IMF lies, now they are saying these bad things against the PF Government and spreading fake news’. One true hallmark of great leadership is the ability to admit mistakes instead of always trying to find scapegoats. Another is genuinely listening to advice” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “There are those of us who believe in the efficacy of Value Added Tax (VAT) as a fairer consumption tax for logical and technical reasons. When correctly implemented, VAT is likely to have a higher positive impact on the economy and society as a whole. In particular, the benefit of VAT lies, among others, in its ability to promote savings, capital formation and investment which is essential for economic development, jobs creation, business opportunities, social uplift and poverty reduction,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “As we have argued before, GST is penal, more costly and difficult to collect. Overall, the GST introduction is likely to result in the Treasury collecting less tax revenue to support health, education, food security and other social services. GST will therefore hurt households, the general citizenry, savings, businesses ( small/medium/large companies which will lead to further business closures and consequently more job losses). Without doubt, GST will slow down even further the already declining economic growth,” “PF’s poor leadership has already caused so much damage to our country and people’s lives. As such and for once, PF should listen to our sound advice for the good of our economy and people” External link

We know that there is a break down in the rule of law and we have citizens being brutlaised and having their rights infringed upon like it happened with Chishimba Kambwili at a radio station in Kabwe. Previously, some people used to think that it was just UPND when we complained about the breakdown in the rule of law. What happened in Kabwe happened to us at Sun FM, I had to go through the roof. Time has come for all of us as citizens to take responsibility to restore the rule of law in this country. This is why we have come together as an alliance because we realise that this is not a battle for one political party,” “Just imagine Bowman Lusambo attacking a citizen and this guy is supposed to be a minister, is he worthy of being a minister? No! maybe in an animal farm government like the PF. Certainly you will not see in the UPND government, in the alliance government, ministers of that nature, they will not be there.

Hakainde Hichilema said ( about Mapenzi Chibulo ) : “There is everything wrong with the PF thuggery in leadership today. You get elected in public office to look after citizens, today it is those in public office who are killing citizens and they remain in your offices, they continue receiving tax payer’s salaries. But we are watching, Zambians are watching, it is not an NDC issue. Who killed Mapenzi Chibulo? We have got opposition members living with bullets in their bodies, bullets fired by state agents. Those people go to UTH, doctors are afraid of treating them because they will be fired. This is the country with break down in the rule of law and selective application of the law. As citizens you need to question these things. We should not allow the shutting down of the media; Prime TV. You all remember what happened to Muvi TV, the Post, Itezhi-tezhi radio, what happened to Chipata yesterday…there is no country to talk about anymore. We want to say that as a team we are still committed, we are not afraid, we shall continue,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said : “We said to MPs that they were supposed to make their own decision based on their own conscience and we are proud that the greater majority of UPND MPs including late Patricia Mwashingwele took a decision that this was illegal and she stood up to say so, she woke up from hospital bed to come and say to members that this was illegal, and imagine losing such a person during such a critical time where we need strong people, she goes down as a freedom fighter for all of us,” “Certain other MPs made that decision to attend, conscious decision. We will not apply any sanction against them, absolutely nothing. Because at that stage every individual was supposed to make a conscious mature decision. And let me tell you, PF designed such an act so that we could impose sanctions on our MPs and shift our attention from serious issues to start dealing with our MPs, we will not do that, we are smarter than that. it’s up to MPs to examine their own consciences and ask themselves if what they are doing is representing the people who elected them. But we expect all MPs for UPND and other to vote against this bill when it’s taken to Parliament” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “The cost of doing business has gone up and as if that is not enough, ZESCO is about to increase its tariff by over 90 per cent. Interest rates keep going up, and the high cost of borrowing has caused a large company like Lamasat to go into receivership with its 700 staff facing the uncertainty of unemployment. If Lamasat with its credit lines can experience financial woes from a slowdown in business , an SME has little chance of survival,” “In UPND, we are happy to take up the challenge of changing our economic fortunes. We know what to do to keep Zambia growing so that our economy can generate good jobs for Zambians. The only way to do that, is to transform the economy, create new opportunities, that means restructuring our industries and reshaping our jobs. Zambia has potential that remains unexplored due to bad leadership. The same private sector that is supposed to be creating jobs is being muzzled by policy inconsistencies and public debt. Today it is VAT tomorrow its GST, next not GST but VAT, this is the business environment in Zambia” External link

As UPND we will think long-term and comprehensively to include Zambians with disabilities in our workforce, protect people who choose to organize a union in their workplaces, that is the decent thing to do. The unions in Zambia are dead, this is the reason civil servants can go for days without pay. Such a cadre can never be productive as they are demotivated,” “On labour Day, we should remember that jobs are about more than getting a salary. They allow us to take care of our family and loved ones, to save for a rainy day and allow us to make plans. Let us commemorate this day with this deep reflections” External link

Therefore, as people that believe in Media freedom, we would like to condemn the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) for playing out a PF agenda by closing privately owned Prime Television. The reasons stated for the closure are nothing but political and gagging the media. This move is unacceptable and all well-meaning Zambians must condemn it. We state so because IBA has never taken time to take such an action on ZNBC an institution funded by the Zambians despite its unfair and biased coverage.

Hakainde Hichilema stated ( about Edgar Lungu ) : “In the usual PF style, the seven-page long and rambling Ministerial Statement presented to Parliament is full of a flowery and deceiving language. First, contrary to the sugar coating in the statement, the 2020 revenue shortfall will be K17.2 billion, of which ZRA will miss its target of K53.9 billion, by a staggering K6.9 billion. Secondly, despite the shortfall in revenues, the PF will increase the 2020 expenditure by K9.7 billion. This simply means that in 2020 the financing gap or deficit in revenues will be K26.9 billion,” “Thirdly, in the usual PF method, the only constant in their governance style is continued policy inconsistencies and reversals. Less than a month ago on 25 June 2020, Mr. Edgar Lungu informed the nation that his Cabinet approved the issuance of a COVID 19 bond to stimulate the haemorrhaging economy. And that the beneficiaries were going to be; retirees and those on the separatees payroll; suppliers of goods and services; and small-medium enterprises (SME). But in a sudden U-turn, the Minister of Finance has unilaterally decided to reverse the decision of the Cabinet and allocate the funds raised on; the Covid-19 economic recovery fund; payment of civil servant loan deductions to microfinance institutions that government spent on other activities after deducting the said amounts from our hard-working public servants; drugs and equipment procurement; grain purchases; and other unknown areas” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated ( about Range Rovers ) : “Cut all the unnecessary expenditures, starting with the large payroll for the politicians. It is unacceptable that you should add another K26.9 billion or $1.5 billion to the already massive and unsustainable debt. We are in this trouble because of this same reckless behaviour. The K3.2 billion you want to spend on the opaque presidential slush fund should be directed to SMEs through established institutions in a transparent manner. Spending this money on politically connected and exposed persons will not rejuvenate the economy through the creation of employment and payment of taxes by the deserving businesses. Range Rovers, vast numbers of houses without known owners and other luxurious purchases do not in any way develop the economy,” “Finally, for once learn to spend the money you hold in trust for the people in a transparent manner. Transparency and accountability remain the hallmark of good governance” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said : “Of great concern to us is that government expenditure continues to rise in the context of significant revenue shortfalls yet without major changes to the National Budget. The government recently announced that while revenues have fallen by K20.8 billion, expenditures have risen by K20.0 billion, including an increase in debt service by K8.7 billion. Current measures to address this shortfall do not go far enough. We implore the PF Administration to revise the 2020 Budget and undertake necessary reforms to make a real impact on lowering runaway expenditure,” External link

In particular, the benefit of VAT lies, among others, in its ability to promote savings, capital formation and investment which is essential for economic development, jobs creation, business opportunities, social uplift and poverty reduction,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “As we have argued before, GST is penal, more costly and difficult to collect. Overall, the GST introduction is likely to result in the Treasury collecting less tax revenue to support health, education, food security and other social services. GST will therefore hurt households, the general citizenry, savings, businesses ( small/medium/large companies which will lead to further business closures and consequently more job losses). Without doubt, GST will slow down even further the already declining economic growth,” “PF’s poor leadership has already caused so much damage to our country and people’s lives. As such and for once, PF should listen to our sound advice for the good of our economy and people” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said ( about Chishimba Kambwili ) : “Nobody should die at the hand of another person. We know that there is a break down in the rule of law and we have citizens being brutlaised and having their rights infringed upon like it happened with Chishimba Kambwili at a radio station in Kabwe. Previously, some people used to think that it was just UPND when we complained about the breakdown in the rule of law. What happened in Kabwe happened to us at Sun FM, I had to go through the roof. Time has come for all of us as citizens to take responsibility to restore the rule of law in this country. This is why we have come together as an alliance because we realise that this is not a battle for one political party,” “Just imagine Bowman Lusambo attacking a citizen and this guy is supposed to be a minister, is he worthy of being a minister? No! maybe in an animal farm government like the PF. Certainly you will not see in the UPND government, in the alliance government, ministers of that nature, they will not be there. We have no leadership in this country to maintain the rule of law, to protect citizens” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said ( about Mapenzi Chibulo ) : “There is everything wrong with the PF thuggery in leadership today. You get elected in public office to look after citizens, today it is those in public office who are killing citizens and they remain in your offices, they continue receiving tax payer’s salaries. But we are watching, Zambians are watching, it is not an NDC issue. Who killed Mapenzi Chibulo? We have got opposition members living with bullets in their bodies, bullets fired by state agents. Those people go to UTH, doctors are afraid of treating them because they will be fired. This is the country with break down in the rule of law and selective application of the law. As citizens you need to question these things. We should not allow the shutting down of the media; Prime TV. You all remember what happened to Muvi TV, the Post, Itezhi-tezhi radio, what happened to Chipata yesterday…there is no country to talk about anymore. We want to say that as a team we are still committed, we are not afraid, we shall continue,” External link

Hakainde Hichilema said : “We said to MPs that they were supposed to make their own decision based on their own conscience and we are proud that the greater majority of UPND MPs including late Patricia Mwashingwele took a decision that this was illegal and she stood up to say so, she woke up from hospital bed to come and say to members that this was illegal, and imagine losing such a person during such a critical time where we need strong people, she goes down as a freedom fighter for all of us,” “Certain other MPs made that decision to attend, conscious decision. We will not apply any sanction against them, absolutely nothing. Because at that stage every individual was supposed to make a conscious mature decision. And let me tell you, PF designed such an act so that we could impose sanctions on our MPs and shift our attention from serious issues to start dealing with our MPs, we will not do that, we are smarter than that. it’s up to MPs to examine their own consciences and ask themselves if what they are doing is representing the people who elected them. But we expect all MPs for UPND and other to vote against this bill when it’s taken to Parliament” External link

Hakainde Hichilema stated : “The cost of doing business has gone up and as if that is not enough, ZESCO is about to increase its tariff by over 90 per cent. Interest rates keep going up, and the high cost of borrowing has caused a large company like Lamasat to go into receivership with its 700 staff facing the uncertainty of unemployment. If Lamasat with its credit lines can experience financial woes from a slowdown in business , an SME has little chance of survival,” “In UPND, we are happy to take up the challenge of changing our economic fortunes. We know what to do to keep Zambia growing so that our economy can generate good jobs for Zambians. The only way to do that, is to transform the economy, create new opportunities, that means restructuring our industries and reshaping our jobs. Zambia has potential that remains unexplored due to bad leadership. The same private sector that is supposed to be creating jobs is being muzzled by policy inconsistencies and public debt. Today it is VAT tomorrow its GST, next not GST but VAT, this is the business environment in Zambia” External link

As UPND we will think long-term and comprehensively to include Zambians with disabilities in our workforce, protect people who choose to organize a union in their workplaces, that is the decent thing to do. The unions in Zambia are dead, this is the reason civil servants can go for days without pay. Such a cadre can never be productive as they are demotivated,” “On labour Day, we should remember that jobs are about more than getting a salary. They allow us to take care of our family and loved ones, to save for a rainy day and allow us to make plans. Let us commemorate this day with this deep reflections” External link

Therefore, as people that believe in Media freedom, we would like to condemn the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) for playing out a PF agenda by closing privately owned Prime Television. The reasons stated for the closure are nothing but political and gagging the media. This move is unacceptable and all well-meaning Zambians must condemn it. We state so because IBA has never taken time to take such an action on ZNBC an institution funded by the Zambians despite its unfair and biased coverage.

You’re talking to me, I take you for what you’re giving me, I look at the facts you have provide for me and they were plausible.
