Laura Miti Gives Pres. Lungu Thumbs Up For Meeting Catholic Bishops

Political commentator Laura Miti has saluted President Edgar Lungu for meeting 14 Catholic Bishops and agreeing to an initial process that will lead to reconciliation with opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Hichilema has spent over 90 days in jail awaiting trail for a non bailable treason charge.

Miti has been one of the strongest voices in demanding fair treatment of Hichilema. She has also emerged as a stern critic of President Lungu’s governance style.

Today, Miti has spared some words that will soothe President Lungu into a good night sleep after enduring the dreaded label of ‘rising dictator’.

BELOW IS LAURA MITI’S COMMENT

Very happy that President Lungu met the Catholic Bishops today and has allowed them to meet HH to broker dialogue and reconciliation. Very impressed with the soberness and dignity in the announcement of the meeting and its results. I hope that from now, what will not be easy discussions will be allowed to continue behind closed doors. Space has to be given to both the President’s team and that of the UPND to do what we all know is best for our country. Well done President Lungu!

      That’s the good move.Fighting each other can’t bring any thing to our country and yet we call our selves Christians. I thank the Catholic Bishops for their spirit they are showing to our country. God bless them all,bless our President Edgar Lungu,and bless Upnd President Hakainde Hichilema and bless all Zambian people..One Zambia One Nation..

    Nonsense, flip-flopper. The other day she was on top of an anthill labeling the President a “Dictator”, today he is “sober and dignified”. These are just careless alarmists who have the potential of brewing chaos in the country with their desire to be heard. Unfortunately, in Zambia they are growing in numbers.

    MITI IS A SNAKE ON GREEN GRASS. SHE IS HOPPING THEY WILL TALK ABOUT A GONU IN WHICH SHE WILL BE GIVEN A POSITION. SORRY, WE GAVE ECL 50.36% OF VOTES AND HE MUST NOT DISCUSS THAT. LET THEM TALK ABOUT ENDING FIRES. LET ECL INFORM HH THAT “I DONT HATE YOU MY BROTHER, YOU JUST FAILED TO CONVICE VOTERS FROM 6.5 PROVINCES. I HOPE THE COURTS WILL GRANT YOU A SPEEDY TRIAL. IF UOU ARE INNOCENT YOU WILL BE FREED. BUT IF YOU ARE FOUND GUILTY, YOU ARE GOING TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. YOUR PETITION FAILED AND YOU CANNOT BLAME ME FOR THST. WE EACH HAD OUR OWN LAWYERS.

    The problem is that Laura Miti does not look at the arrogance and pride that hh has in him Zambia does not need a leaders whose heart is full of hate and constantly speaks vengence in an event that he had a chance to rule Zambia him along with his followers are spiteful and retributive.
    I like the fact that our humble President Mr EC. Lungu feeds on love and humility has condoned to embrass dialogue.
    in the best interest of peace for mother Zambia and taking into account that Zambia is above every individual and ethinic groupings.
    I sincerely salute His Excellence the President of Zambia who is also commander in chief of all armed forces.

    There’s need to have conditions for the dialogue. Otherwise it will be a flop. The matter of contention is hh refusing to accept ECZ results. If he maintains that, then no need to talk. The man is just arrogant and selfish. Unfortunately his followers are blindly following his steps

    Dear Miti,i am terribly ashamed of your wicked thirsty to be head. Please, 1.-you consistently breathed your unrespective remarks to the head of state. Calling him a dictador, if he was, do you know that in his position he has powers to command the security wings to realy deal with you but he consided your childish reasoning, now let me teach you manners, this Man is where he is because Yahweh allowed it. 2- never be influenced to bring a curse upon your life in the name of impressing people, because Zambia is not Miti but alot of people hence as you talk know that he is an appointed presindent as well as anointed of Yahweh, if you urge, go to your church Pastor or any Ellohim fearing Man of GOD about this.3-only an angry Man speaks without consindering his words, what i mean is this “,a fool thalks and consinders not his fooly “.4-if truly you spoke in soberness, it means you have personal enemity with the presindent best known by you!, becuase this gusture can not over night change your attitute no! .Please repent or you will regret of your evil and negativity about the head of state. Wise advise.

    Ba hh just for a second try to be humble. Don’t think Zambia is you. Or maybe you are bigger than Zambia. Even without you or lungu Zambia will be there. The earth does not revolve around you geography tells us that it revolves around the sun. You are inside but us your people are fatherless out here because of your immature emotions. Learn to be torelant and accommodative please.We need you very much

    The president does not have powers to release criminals.unless convicts period.At the moment this criminal should´wait for the courts to decide if found guilt and setenced that when the president can pardon him as a convict.thats what the law says.sorry it does not mean anything whether the Bishops visit him or not period.alutaa continuaaa

    There is quite some sense in this . HH has been squeezed and there is need for him to come out. This part of law is a password for LUNGU and he has used it to its maximum. We want the country to start afresh. This is a lesson to all politicians, never bite what you may not manage to chew. If one has instruments of power already, he has a bigger advantage, play it safe. KK also had a go at it during Chiluba, it really crippled him too. Politics, they call it a dirty game and indeed it is.
