UPND Official Cautions Hichilema Against Calling His Supporters “Cowards”

A UPND official in Kitwe has reacted angrily to calls by party leader Hakainde Hichilema suggesting that some members were cowards who could not stand up and speak out against injustices allegedly perpetrated by the ruling Patriotic Front.

The official said it is shocking that the party leader is today calling people cowards when they spoke for him while he was incarcerated.

He has since advised Hichilema not to use emotions but bring all the members together and begin mobilising ahead of the next elections.

“we know he is not happy, but you don’t call your supporters cowards…people react differently our President needs us more and I think now is not the right time to start calling each other names but work together for the growth of the Party”

“Look he had spend time in Prison, who was talking? He may have not head us but you people have always head us speak, moreover we can’t be speaking out anyhow when our leaders are quiet. We are not scared of anything; some of us have been intimidated and arrested before by the police why should we be scared now? He asked.

He said it is surprisingly that Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili who has recently been expelled from the Patriotic Front is slowly making an impact while the UPND is focusing on lighter issues that are not even making an impact.

“We need to organise ourselves, Kambwili cannot just come and starts to overshadow us yet we have been in the opposition for years, our leaders need to set an agenda.. I can tell you some of our members are even thinking of leaving the party because we have preoccupied ourselves with less important issues”

The UPND Official has further expressed disappointment that the senior most party members have focused so much on discussing the 2016 General election which he said must be left behind and focus on more important issues.

“Sometimes I am saddened that we spend so much time talking about the election petition, I think it’s high time we forgot this issues, its water under the bridge whether the PF stole our votes or not we must forget and move on. We can’t be mourning forever, surely we would have done better if we let go this issues, and our members are yearning for more hope come 2021”

    wise counsel lm also disappointed with HH he can’t call us cowards if he expected us to riot he is joking wait for 2021 period.

  12. Benson Kampukwe

    My fellow citizens when giving advice to the top leadership let’s not be of double standards; When a tap breaks down in your room (kitchen or bathroom) do just start wiping the water without first closing or fixing the tap and then start wiping? Now how can you talk of 2021 elections when you haven’t ironed the loopholes?Let the thieves be revealed so that they can be ashamed.

      You people, you just waiting your over spilled milk by focusing on the past elections, your colleagues are already on the ground your are busy mammering. Your are going to cry again since you depend on Dundumwezi and HH as your Savior. Wake up guys, you can do better.

  13. mulongoti

  14. Mwape A

    In upnd we need a leader like Kambwili, who is fearless not this leaders we are currently have, now they start blaming and accusing us of being cowards when it’s them who are cowards fearing incarceration, twalajoina Kambwili.

  15. Ba likomu

    HH my friend call yourself want when you call others cowards?

  16. Kasman

    My advise as well is let’s forget about 2016 elections and look for the way forward because nothing will change from the onset. 2021 is very near…

  17. Hm

    You can not talk about 2021 when our nation is stinking we need to clean our house first lest things will be the same for ever

  18. Phinord sianyangu

    HH is going to win the election in 2021 no matter what because as UPND members we are going to work like shaka zulu

    • sakx

      Tapali naiwe, alibombelepo pesa? He was not even save ministrial post in government, is just a business man, so he can’t win the elections he will cry again

  19. Chisenga

    EITHER WAY, THE PF STILL STANDS A MUCH BETTER CHANCE AND ADVANTAGE. IF THESE GUYS CONCENTRATE ON THE LOST 2016 ELECTIONS, THIS WILL GIVE THE PF TIME TO CONCENTRATE ON WINNING THE 2021 ELECTIONS AS THE UPND GOES TO SLEEP DREAMING THAT THE 2016 ELCTIONS WILL BE NULLIFIED BY SOME IMAGINARY COURT. IF THEY TRY TO FOCUS ON THE 2021 ELECTIONS STILL THEY HAVE NO STRATEGY APART FROM WALKING OUT OF PARLIAMENT, RANTING ABOUT CORRUPTION, OFFICIATING AT TONGA CEREMONIES AND HAVE NO ACHIEVEMENTS TO POINT AT. ITS DUNUNA AGAIN. AND IT SEEMS AS IF IT WILL BE WORSE THIS TIME.

  20. Jimmy mk

    if kambwili can stand & shame the party he was. you upnd your leader must capitalize on this.this is what call campaign.openup your minds.

  21. Chibuye

  24. Phil

    This is the problem when someone hijacked the party using money, you are insulted at any time. Come 2021, pf looks better placed than upnd because they have been working on the ground while upnd is still with 2016 elections which has passed. Wake up upnd.

  29. wapya

    Commentthis man. he just respect himself not others that’s why he is calling his suporters cowards

  30. Msimuko

    Am real member in upnd now but there no time now for a leader to start insulting members in public. HH has to control his heart like what The late used to do( Doctor SATA ) may his soul rest in peace. Mmd from him for how long?

  31. Geoffrey

    He is a loser

  32. Mambwe Lukoso.

    Point missed. Putting behind 2016 election result is as good as Putting behind 2021 election. Under the operation of the current constitution no party can unseat the ruling party. Even if the ruling party won genuinely it will still be difficult for the opposition to accept the election results. Reforms b4 party mobilisation.
