Eyeball to Eyeball: Pres. Lungu and Hichilema Meet

Something good has come out of Daniel Munkombwe’s funeral with sworn political rivals President Edgar Lungu and UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema coming into each other’s way. President Lungu and Hichilema were both in Choma to attend the funeral of veteran politician Daniel Munkombwe.

The two personalities warmed up to each other as did Hichilema and First Lady Esther Lungu last week at another funeral.

Munkombwe who died on Friday last week is being put to rest today at his Kabebya Farm.

    Nice move their.
    But it shouldn’t become a notion of reconciliating at the funerals only.
    The move must be exhibited in everyday’s life.

    Peace!!!!!

  16. Matemba

    There’s totally nothing good or rather advantageous about two political entrancic antagonists shaking hands at a funeral, lets be objective, while these two perspicacious sagacious individuals have failed to set aside their political differences aside for the greater good of Mother Zambia, nothing good will emanate from that handshake.

  17. Raphael

    Truly funerals bring people together

  18. James claps mphande

    Mmmmmmm cool if u continue this way we will have a very peaceful country

    There are four major events that bring people together regardless of their colour, political affiliation, race,tribe or clan and these are: religion , sports , wedding ceremonies and funeral gatherings. So for anybody to meet with their perceived enemies at any of the above outlined events should not be politicised but give thanks to God who is the master of time.

    Zambia is a Christian Nation whether one likes it or not so Jehovah has an interest because of the few genuine Christians who worship Him in truth and spirit. Leadership is from God Romans 13:1-7 God piks up the nothing because He Is God no one can question Him. 1Corinthians 1:18- 31, Most Christians start very well but they end up badly .Is it true thatUNZA has opened classes to learn about witchcraft. Witchcraft is not an art it is evil from Satan, the one who has introduced it must be fired because she is a Satanist. Look at South Africa that country is gone judgment has come upon that country if the president has endorsed then God has removed His favour from him we hope and pray that it is not true. Confirm to us Zedwa from South Africa was banned to perform in Zambia but witchcraft is worse God abhors it . Bwana president surround yourself with morally good people, people who fear God not man full of the Holy Ghost those should be your advisors

    That’s good

    Let us hope even the so called cadres will follow their leaders’ gesture,but alas,I don’t think so.

    Like football politics is a game that people play and one eventually wins,in football teams go to war to win the world cup:in these games teams become aggressive footballers are sometimes injured and removed from the playing field but the game continues and with so much love for the game the players battle it out,It is the same thing with politics except in politic it a war of words,politics is a war of sales and marketing and those that have a good product and a good marketing team takes the day,unlike in football politics is not physical and must not be treated as such,in politics one’s choice of words is important because eventually politicians are judged by what comes out of their mouths,and at funerals politicians know best to behave accordingly,people meet at funerals not because they are friends or were friends to the deceased but to mourn and pay their last respect to the dead and the late Hon Munkombwe’s funeral(mhsrip) is no different,yes it’s a good thing for the Republican President Mr Lungu and President Hichilema to meet and shake hands we are africans and thats what we do at funerals,we greet each other…remember politicians always have a political motive for doing what they do

  60. Dolph MC Wayne

    Nice one my president forgive and forget. Man of Peace…. That is privileged.

  74. NKANDU MICHAEL

    Is there a problem here? which rivalry are they talking about, these are not rivals or enemies. The two are doing two different jobs. Mr Lungu is a president while Mr HH is a leader of the opposition . When did they become enemies? To me there is no enmity.

  75. Richard

    Zambia shall be saved. Our prayers are not in vain.

  76. ABRAHAM LUCKLY
