Hichilema Marks One Year after Treason Release

Today marks exactly one year since opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema was released from Mukobeko Maximum Prison on treason charges.

The nation fed off the diet of his 100 day incarceration after having blocked the Presidential motorcade in Mongu.

A lot of things have happened since his release, with the much flaunted turnaround in his fortunes by his supporters still elusive. Ironically the UPND curve seems to have taken a nosedive since that time. Perhaps the biggest legacy the incarceration left was the pledge to dialogue by all key political players under the mediation of Commonwealth Secretary General Patricia Scotland.


  1. Mr. K

    The lesson he lent was that Zambia has a legitimately elected head of state he. Will never do that again

    • Babs

      Zambia’s present leader is not legitimate. That is why ECZ is still under lock and key

      • Mavuto

        Lessons from Zimbabwe:
        Nelson Chamisa’s court challenge is basically divided into two parts. The first argument is based mainly on the arithmetic/statistical errors (intentional or otherwise) comparing ZEC announced figures to the ZEC provided election results CD, the v11 and v23 forms. The second argument is based on the procedures followed by ZEC (and other interested parties) prior, during and after elections which might have compromised the election results.

  13. Scott

    What type of Zambians are we having by commenting rubbish. Zambia is there today tomorrow and in the future with different leadership in place. Nothing wrong for HH to remember his remarkable release from prison. Each person has only one vote. Your opinion is yours alone. What the country is going through has a cause. Can we mature and help to change the current scenario to a better one.

  14. Mr dundumwenze

    African politicians are a problem. No wonder , one son of Africa said, ” Africa doesn’t need POLITICIANS but LEADERS to preside over the affairs and resources of the African continent.

  17. Am so Tonga

    One philosopher said the behavior of any leader dipicts the behavior of his followers, in simplicity, like leader, like followers. its sad to see a Zambian insulting while his markets are sold, hamard with tax and still insulting using only 5 joeles of energy left in his empty stomech. HH don’t mind them they ull still insult the day u will reduce tax and give them conducive trading areas. They ll say Chikala nimukaali uyu. Because they leave,eat,sell and harvest violence and insults.

  18. Mr wick
