Hichilema Is Lying Over Kafue, Luangwa National Parks Auction – Tourism Minister

Tourism and Arts Minister Charles Banda has dismissed as false claims by UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema that government has sold the Kafue and Luangwa national parks.

Hichilema had claimed that President Edgar Lungu is negotiating to sale Kafue and part of Luangwa National Parks.

Speaking when he addressed the media and his supporters at the UPND Secretariat in Lusaka on Sunday, Hichilema said the PF Government already sold NRDC, Chimbokaila Correctional Facility and other key institutions.

But Mr Banda that as a ministry they are not even mandated to sell any national park in the country.

He has since challenged the UPND leader to produce evidence of the people who will be conducting the auction or to whom the national parks have been sold to.

Banda says it’s regrettable that politicians are bringing politics into everything thereby alarming the situation.

    It was quite clear that the man was lying and even without clarification we already know. Its unfortunate that our politics have been reduced to nothing and they are adding no value to our lives. Maybe Kambwili will bring a different style of politics not Mr HH. He speaks like a kid. How can you convince people to vote for you with that knd of leadership? The man has lost it. HH is actually delaying UPND to come to power, he lacks strategy. CNP.

    PF ousted Mmd on the premises of correcting the rampant corruption and the sale of parastatal companies that characterized the exit period. Why should PF forget so quickly and resort to the same condemned policies? Something has gone wrong .

    A president of a party musk be factual instead of causing alarm. We need to trust your word when you’re in Leadership. An English saying goes “One Fingure Soiled The Rest.” lt’ll be difficult to believe you next time you make false/true utterances. Comment

  19. Amagenge

    Why does HH speak like a cadre. As a person who is education. He should always open his mouth we facts. UPND is a big party to be issuing sweeping statements especially from the month of the president. We would understand cadres talking from without. HH can produce facts even at his press conferences unless his party intelligence is weak.

  20. saimwende saimbwende

    UPND could have come into power long before PF if it was being led by somebody else not HH. This man for sure politics is his talent. he lacks political strategy to usher in UPND into government. Come 2021 again UPND will still be in opposition just mark my words

  21. Perry simunyola

    We all know and see the challenges that the current government is facing by being stubborn of selling your resources but by 2021 pf will be stubbornless and accept the defeat

    You shld not give comments if you don’t have proper information. Always blaming one person 2021 is near

  24. Prince Mande

    Spending 104 or 365 days in custody/detention does not make him a criminal. He is not guilty until proven guilty as charged and sentenced to a day or whatever period in prison. As it is he has no criminal record and is therefore eligible to stand fo whatever office.
