Freed Hichilema Says Thank You: “I Am Now 10 Times Stronger”

Freed opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has paid tribute to his supporters following an outpouring of love shown to him after his release.

Supporters joined Hichilema’s convoy jogging side by side the motorcade from Lusaka Central Prison to the UPND secretariat through his residence in New Kasama.

The distance Hichilema’s supporters covered on foot is estimated at between 12 to 15 kilometers.

Hichilema and five others have served a little over four months in jail on treason related charges that have widely been speculated as politically motivated.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lilian Siyuni discontinued the case when the matter came up for hearing in the High Court this morning.

When Hichilema finally arrived at his residence, scores of supporters chanted, “we love you, we love you, we love you.”

Hichilema told reporters shortly after alighting from his vehicle he was humbled by the support.

The businessman turned politician assured his supporters the harsh prison conditions had not broken him.

Instead, Hichilema declared he was 10 times stronger.

“Thank you to all of you who drove with us from Chimbokaila prison to our secretariat and finally to our residence.

“To those who followed us through various communication channels across the globe, in celebrating our release from prison, we value your support too,” he said.

    I remember president Edgar Lungu when was serving as home affairs minister was asked by a journelist if he had presidential dreams,the answer was that he had never thouht that one day he would hold such a high post as that of minister of home affairs,therefore, we can conclude that his presidential ambitions were born after the death of king cobra as was seen by the number of pf ministers who sprouted with presidential ambitions just after the death of ba Bo Sata M.H.S.R.I.P. Come 2021 the PF will be shocked as they have already started decampagning themselves especially by fixing the price of maize at K60 per 50Kg bag.This year means if a farmer wants to build a house he will have to spend ALMOST twice the amount he should have spent once.I wish they could do the same to zesco,universities and manufacturers to drastically reduce the price of goods and services they offer and see if it work.Farmers you are so many in this nation,don’t just complain about your bruises but in 2021 use your voter’s card wisely.

    2021 is not very far away.Ba PF,You will be shocked because we use the don’t kubeba song against you.Wina azalila like former president Rupiah Banda,it will be dununa forward.My advice ba HH try by all possible means to win the hearts of people on the copperbelt,muchinga,northern central and luapula provinces.Amongest my many friends some are farmers and are bitter about the losses they have made in the sale of their grains.HH you are a farmer and you can console fellow farmers and make them see light at the end of the tunnel,ba Hichilema,make use of the farmer’s disappointment that’s what Sata M.H.S.R.I.P used to do against the MMD government.In recent years,the perks for civil servants have seen a steady rise in form of increaments,building materials up and zesco tarrifs are up but a farmer’s income has been divided almost by two,what a challenge for a farmer to educate his children.Chiwamina galu kuluma mbuzi but mu 2021 mbuzi azaluma galu.

    Why did the same DPP commit HH and the five others for trial in the High Court and make Hh and others serve a sentence from 11th April and on 16th August 2017 discontinued the good treason Case against Hh and the co accused?

  27. prophecy 2021,HH De looser.

    HH Ingombe shalikulinga continue with farming you’r a farmer. Your plan was to continue drilling bore-holes in rural areas. Since your failing to make it last year, how many have you drilled so far in your village you was born? if nothing, 2021 you will never make it again.

  28. CHANGE OF HEART

    In his Heart of hearts, he knows being detained in prison does not make anyone stronger. Neither does sleeping in the graveyard. He should trust the ECZ & the Judiciary and debunk his current crop of inept advisors . Let them just become supporters. May be – The next Presido – From pride & arrogance to humility & common sense . Good Luck .

  29. Goods

    Regardless of human thoughts, our good God has given grace on everyone. It’s this grace that protects, provide, heal, free, and guides everyone wether witch, prostitute, thief,cold-hearted e.t.c. Therefore Shall we all celebrate HIS grace to let hh walk to freedom.
