Hichilema Gives Pointers Ahead of Key Speech in London

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema will today give his speech at the Royal Institute of International Affairs at the Chatham House.

Hichilema has gained some international mileage in the aftermath of his incarceration on charges of treason that he insisted were politically motivated.

The UPND leader has sought some sanctuary in foreign lands where the international press clamour around him on his mission to discredit President Edgar Lungu’s government.

BELOW IS HIS POSTING AHEAD OF HIS SPEECH:

Greetings fellow citizens,

It is our sincere hope that you are doing well, if not, please do not relent and we encourage you to remain strong because hope and help is on the way.

As you may be aware, following an invitation to give a speech by the Royal Institute of International Affairs at the Chatham house, a world Leading Think Tank based in London, United Kingdom, we will as well tomorrow basically state our party’s priorities, role of the opposition parties in democracy among other issues related to good governance.

Several world leaders and some sitting Presidents have been invited in the recent past to speak at the Chatham House on issues such as International Affairs and policy directions.

We are honoured to be invited too and give our speech at the same Royal Institute of International Affairs, and really we will endeavour to explain how our country can be a true icon of democracy, freedoms, remain economically strong and independent.

Her Majesty, The Queen has been the patron of the Royal Institute of International Affairs since her ascension to the throne in 1952.

The institute was granted its Royal Charter in 1926 by her grandfather, George V.

After our speech at the Chatham House, we will then proceed to having interviews with various media houses that have invited us, we will again explain the vision we have for our country, Zambia, and how together we can move it forward and truly become independent on the lines of economic emancipation.

Have a blessed day,
God Bless our Country.
HH.

      Police should be custodians of law and order. And public workers are GOVT policy implemented. If the GOVT plans security for it’s citizens it’s the military and police officers to implement the policy. Hence the police should support GOVT of the day

    Mr hh, you are becoming lost. That’s why you are invited to go and show your stabonness. Zambian people will not hear what you speek, only those your kandilez will hear your speech. Good platforms are here in Zambia not there were there no people to vote you. Edgar lungu is the president chosen by God. Continue exposing your foolishness out of Zambia.

      Mr Sata while in opposition was invited by Oxford university. There’s nothing wrong with the invitation. We should give our politicians same latitude to express themselves. Insults and bad-mouthing will not build our democracy. Im any case we as voters must be given freedom to choose among politicians period. No single party or person has a monopoly over our vote. Please note that we are in a democracy.

    I now believe Zambian don’t think outside the box but inside while in the box. Imagine every one of you were there when lungu crooked his opponents at mulungush during convention in 2015 . Sampa, Chishimber and few to mention were all in confusions in pf because of lungu. Zambians still have Vail covered on there faces and that’s reason they don’t know how to chose their leaders. God’s time is best though even a thief can claim to be a messenger of God in ship’s skin. We know that Lungu is our leader and he had all his efforts just win and make us his followers.

    Only a mad dog goes to bark outside the yard instead of keeping vigil the security of the yard of the masters! HH should wisely spend the money he has earned from where ever on globetrotting denouncing our nation and our president, His Excellency, PRESIDENT EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU, because one day he will remember his little wealth! If HH has points to share even here at home we can hear. If we can’t hear from him now it’s because Zambians are not ready to vote for him in to the high office at the moment or he is simply a wrong person altogether! HH is going around the universe to talk ill about our country but clearly forgetting that is back home where he can be voted for! It’s not the international community who will vote for him it’s us he is leaving behind. The money he is spending on these unfruitful trips can help his relatives here at home where he is telling the world we are in poverty! HH the man is self centered and in his current state he is not fit to be the leader of this where we want the problems that have affected us adversely since independence to be solved or addressed! So for HH to go out and insult this nation, the nationals, the entire leadership of this country, our judicial system, the technocrats and then he comes back here and asks for a vote is neither here or there where he has gone to bark like a mad dog and mocking the dignity of this nation as a whole! It’s not good to undress when you are bitter! Why didn’t the president release even 500 prisoners who could have gone back to rebuild their families instead of releasing this ungrateful prisoner! We all know what HH did is punishable at law! Please help me to understand!!!!
