Hichilema Should Respect Pres. Lungu, Says Dr Canisius Banda

Former UPND deputy president Dr Canisius Banda has says opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema should respect the presidency (office) and president (Edgar Lungu).

Dr. Banda says the UPND leader should have respected president Edgar Lungu because the Head of State is the president for all Zambians.

“HH should have respected president Edgar Lungu because he is also president Lungu’s subject as such he has no option but to respect the head of state,” said Banda.

Dr Banda says he is still wondering why opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has found it so difficult to respect president Edgar Chagwa Lungu this time.

Hichilema is currently behind bars on treason related charges. Treason is non-bailable in Zambia.

“I think HH must swallow the bitter pill and acknowledge that president Edgar Chagwa Lungu is the only Republican president at the moment as there can never be two sitting presidents at once.

“Its just common sense, there can only be one president at a time and such a one is ptesident Edgar Chagwa Lungu,” Dr Banda said.

Dr Banda has again wondered whether Hichilema can respect a common man if he can not respect the head of state.

“The head of state is the most powerful, influential and senior citizen in the country who must be respected by all the Zambians. Its worrying to see people like HH not respecting the head of state,” he said.

Dr Banda has further advised the UPND leader to start respecting president Edgar Chagwa Lungu for the fact that he was elected by the majority of the Zambian people to lead the nation therefore there is nothing the UPND can do to change the will of people.

      Mwila – There is nothing to keep quiet for, he is telling you the truth but you are finding it hard to swallow your pride and that is why your HH is locked up.

        Respect can not be commaded neither can it be squeezed out of someone It is inborne.Respect can be determined by someone’s attitude towards others.Bullies can be respected out of fear but hey! is that true respect?Bambo Banda remove those dark glasses and see it with your naked eyes in case your brains are at fault.

          A Lungu please a doc Banda afuna ncito. It’s easy, just check for any Tonga or lozi on diplomatic assignment recall them and send a doco Banda, yabanyokola njala pilizi a Lungu, umozi ku mawa!

      Canisius is right. I am not partisan but if you take all fgactors in to account. Its clear that HH has been trying to undermine, the Government of the day, the ruling party and most definitely the zambian people. He comes across like if he doesn’t win then he will not accept, until he wins!

    You want to be heard as saying something sensible. We know you want that its hunger talking. When a man is hungry, he can even betray his own father. If you think,that President lungu,will give you a post, kikiki,you lie. Shame on you.

    Telespho mpundu is true cause he support upnd,C Banda is lying cause he supported HE ECL this time.shame.had HH kept banda for advice he wasn’t going to be were he is

  13. Chamapinduzi T

    “Dr Banda has again wondered whether Hichilema can respect a common man if he can not respect the head of state”. This is a concept that has escaped most of us. We can clearly remember how every institution of Zambia has been insulted by Hichilema. The police, the Judiciary, the presidency and only a naive person would believe that HH would have any respect for a common man. We all know that all these leaders are in politics for themselves first.

  14. Chisenga

    PRESIDENT ECL SHOULD NOT WASTE HIS TIME TRYING TO CAUSE HH TO RECOGNIZE HIM. THAT IS TANTAMOUNT TO TRYING TO SQUEEZE WATER OUT OF A DRY ROCK. HH WILL NEVER EVER RECOGNIZE THE PRESIDENT OF ZAMBIA AS LONG AS IT IS NOT HIM IN THAT SEAT. AT THIS TIME HH IS JUST A DETRACTOR. AT THE END OF 5 YEARS ECL MAY HAVE NOTHING TO POINT AT APART FROM HAVING WASTED TIME TRYING TO GET RECOGNITION FROM HH. LEAVE THE MAN. IGNORE HIM. HE IS NOT A FACTOR. APART FROM RANTINGS HERE AND THERE. WE ONLY HOPE HE SHALL NOT REPEAT THE MONGU INCIDENCE BECAUSE EVEN OUR LAW DOES NOT SEEM TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT SUCH AN ACT. ITS LIKE IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO GIVE WAY TO THE PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE.

    Edmund, a little civility can help. The problem we have in Zambia is that a number of people have no capacity to see the. Offer picture. HH’s message has been asking the courts to hear his petition as per law. Now the individual calling for justice is called names. The Tonga people are solid individuals, they know what they want and it’s for the good of the country. You Edmund are a poor chap surviving on crumbs because of the unethical administration of state affairs. The Tongas are fight for posterity and decency in the administration of state resources. Search their history and you will know why they never queue up at State House lobbying for appointments.

      iwe chi jjp the life you are living you are implying to me, you absurd tonga hard heart and one day you all tongas will knee down and asking for the forgiveness and you will never reach ku plot one

    • John Kalulu

      Hear petition under which constitution after 14 days? Should we change the constitution again just to have this case heard?

  16. mboro

    edmund you are foolish.Zambia shuld be divided i hate ka botolo with passion

  17. Male

    His just telling the fact of all truth not a fraction of it cause hh has no any Authorit

  18. Male

    His just telling the fact of all and not a fraction of it cause the So called HH has no power nor an authority that allows him to do that…

  19. Servant of God

    Those fighting against the authority God has instituted please read God’s command on the governing authority ROMANS 13:1-7.
    Once you read this scripture I am sure you will have the fear of God and know that it is God who puts presidents and removes them as we wills and that they’re God’s servants

  20. Kapaya Brian

    Forget about that mad man so called Banda

  21. bulldozer

    Pipo like banda are not 100% normally even her thinking capacity is low average

  22. James Badoo

    HH respects the presidency the reason why he’s fighting to ensure the integrity of the office is maintained. Supporting anomalies in the electoral process is succumbing to levels of integrity that does not a befit a man to be president. Lungu is occupying the office of the President in a manner disputed and it’s important that the underlying issues are taken on board to resolve the impasse. So Canisius differentiate between the office and the person occupying the office. If you want a job, just ask I believe it will be given to you.

  23. The Wise

    Dr K.B you are very right, I think that is the are HH needs to lectured. He lost the election because majority we voted for ECL who is now the President and who should be respected by all peace loving Zambian. HH does not understand what peace is that’s why he is were he is today may be he can learn something from there. Zambian’s let us call a spade a spade HH was very wrong and must be condemned by well meaning citizens.

  24. wizkid

    Evil things that men do.Ba C.Banda you support illegality by praising a corrupt government.Please just come up open if u want a job and want to lick Mumbi Phiri’s shoes.

  25. Bbbbb hamps

    That man is useless I no him

  26. Nicolas

    That’s true Mr Banda.

  27. mulase

    In case u don’t know the pressure HH has let me tell u now..its the money he got from Angro America .Angro America wants to come back to Zambia nd its the same company sponsoring the DA party of South Africa.Angro America abandoned Zambia wen copper prices dropped nd they they thought this country will go to its knees but China came nd helped us. I know one senior chief in southern province who went to south Africa to collect money for campaigns on behalf of HH which money was sent by Angro America. If this chief will read this he will be shivering at being exposed.Whilst chiefs in southern province have financial problems him is benefiting through UPND.This is a fact nd not hear say.Expect more in the next comment if I get a reaction to this coz I will mention every detail.
