HH Asks MPs to Examine Benefit of NDF

UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema has asked his Members of Parliament to start examining whether participating in the National Dialogue Forum was worth it.

Hichilema, who was speaking on Radio Christian Voice’s Chat Back program, has further described the just ended National Dialogue Forum as an illegal gathering, on allegations that it did not have representation from Zambians.

He said the UPND Members of Parliament who attended the National Dialogue Forum will not be victimised despite them having known the party’s position on the process.

“Some of them are listening to PF. PF is telling them that they will not be adopted. I don’t know where they are getting that, not from us. These members ought to continue examining whether what they participated in was right or wrong,” Hichilema said.

He further said the NDF was comprised of people with no interests of Zambians at heart.

Hichilema also accused political parties that attended the forum of being surrogates of the Patriotic Front, charging that they have no meaningful representation.

He questioned the appointment of delegates at the forum and accused President Edgar Lungu of playing double standards in the appointment of Professor Muyunda Mwanalushi as Chairperson of the Forum.

Hichilema said the adoptions made at the national dialogue forum were being done in the interest of a few individuals who attended.

“We have allowed people playing games and destroying the economy. It is clear that constitution making is a consensus building process and not coercion, it is the responsibility of the people and not a selected group around PF. How do you have people debating the return of deputy ministers when the country’s economy is crippled?” Hichilema wondered.

      You should have attended with your team.The Problem is that to you all Gatherings are Black.Sir Boxing I’d never fought outside but inside

  2. Eye

    Contribute on bringing back the economy show us something sir.you are too much of a critic do something that will makes us remember you at heart when voting in 2021 e.g president stata contributed in the mwanawasa erra

    • Mpombo Bob

      Even if Sata was not around, Levy Mwanawasa had assembled a powerful and brilliant team to manage the affairs of Zambia. If Sata was good at helping Levy how come he failed to improve the economy when he assumed power in 2011?

    • Shikantwa

      How did Sata contribute?

    • KAUBAY

      What did Sata contribute? So that I share with others too.

      • Bongwe

        I think you’re not a civil servant, Sara uplifted the welfare of all civil servants even the lowly paid were happy

    It is true ,nothing tangible has come out but why were u not there to defend those resolutions,especially introducing more ministers when the country is failing to pay civil servants.when a snake is inside your house,u don’t fight it by throwing stones from outside onto the room.Fight from within!

    • Idiocy Detector

      So if thieves were to invite you on their mission, would you accept to go with them in order to stop them from stealing?

      • that was a debate unless you fear to debate

        That was an open forum for anybody to debate .why did they shun it ?

  4. KUBALA

    I LICHE

  5. THE REGULATOR

    Ba HH, I agree with other contributions.You needed to be there and be part with yr MPs, of any who saw it ilogical bringing back D.MINISTERS when the ECONOMY is really biting.The 4% Civil Servant s increament can pay only one DM.So be part of such Patriotic Zambians.

  6. niconco

    If you want to stop the fight, you should go near dont shout from afar. That is cowardise.

  7. Simfukwe

    Him now does not look at the quality of resolutions passed by ndf but thinking of his stooges he organized in the churches 17 MPs of upnd participated others were using SMS massages so be prepared to receive a shock

  8. saimbwende

    We mbwe we HH, you have no moral right to comment on the resolutions of the NDF when you declined to be part of it. You are like a woman complaining about relish that has been prepared by other women when she refused to be part of them in cooking. HH listen, you should grow up politically you are still an ander five politician. Only your fellow TONGAS will take you seriouly becuase to them you are a small god, a messiah, a perfect human being and a man who knows it all.

  9. Frazer Moonde

    HH is right.The legality of NDF is questionable.Some of the resolutions are not in the interest of Zambian people.One wonders why civil servants rights to occupy political office can be trampled like that.We are ready to rise to the occasion and defend the affected citizens.Further, we are equal to task and have already started consulting the law.The right procedure for amending the constitution has to be followed.

    • Dude

      That’s what you are good at….consulting the law. By the way, how far has your petition on the 2016 elections taken you? Nowhere, apart from wasting your time. Learn to learn from your experiences.Muleya mulekula!

      • Frazer Moonde

        What experiences are you talking about?It is our constitutional right to complain if our rights have been infringed.We can not allow a small group to suggest some changes in the law aimed at scoring personal agendas. It is only people who are not patriotic who can support wrong things. This country is at the verge of collapsing: tribalism,regionalism, corruption and so on and so forth. We are not going to wait for an angel to descend from heaven and resolve our problems. When we start, we mean business because we are also Zambians

    It’s over.Those who mean well were there and contributed. Who ever was not there can not start making noise now.Please stop that noise.Where were you? You just want to instigate rubbish in good people’s minds.Useless……

    • Living Legend

      Mr Peace there is no peace and certainly no wisdom in you

  15. Dude

    Hakaivotela Heka, insoni emano. The best you could have done was to keep quiet. Don’t expose your under 5 politics.

  16. Alu.B

    Ba HH,if you were to be mandated to rule Zambia,what magic are you going to use to improve the zambian economy?

  17. HH

    Don’t even say anything about the NDF, you and your people did not attend. Ba HH it’s clear that you are not representing the Zambian citizens meaningfully. An opposition speaks for the people not like you who always shun away from things that are even affecting you. Your party is not an opposition that speak change for the people maybe with someone else. Your boycotts does mean anything.

  18. Bruno mars the moonshine jungle master

    Siyambwende are you a zambian? I’m not sure.You are talking like someone from abroad peaple of zambia are suffering alot and you are talking nosense look at our kwacha comparing to the dolla.Go hh we love you

    To be honest there is a lot of trash on this platform. I promise never to come back. Full of Dunderheads, my foot!!

    • Living Legend

      They are paid up PF dunderheads dear Mpombo

  21. Truestory

    Mr Hagainde according to you the only bad part is the appointment of the chairperson of the NDF and the Deputy Ministers issue, which to me means you have nothing more to talk about in all the other resolutions. Now the question is why didn’t you attend the NDF? If you had attended you were going to ague your thoughts about these 2 issues you’ve put through, and the other thing is the issue of Deputy Ministers hasn’t been past yet it still will go to Parliament were your MPs can still shout it down. On the chairperson, that’s not an issue coz the old man did a good job,uushitasha mwana was ndoshi.learn to appreciate Mr ichilema.

  22. Hebk

    Who do your mps represent Hh. ?You or the people of zambia. Grow up man..

  23. shaka

    This guy can not be a president for this country, because he is a selfishness man. He just think about him self and not about others. For that reason only the TONGA’s will vote for you.

  24. daveson

  29. Barcelona Manager

    Mr Chintombwa, to you everyone who attends National issues is not representing the Zambian people unless those that shun them then to you these are Zambians ok why do you allow foreigners to perform State functions and make Laws for you who are more Zambian without stopping them but instead you just complain from a distance. Pure cowardice if you ask me Mr Kalusa Wamuyayaya

  30. Kelvin

    one zambia one nation peace that so

  31. Kambwili

    Most Zambians are short -sighted and have no brains. Is this the era that you should be talking about tribe. I come from Muchinga and I support what HH is saying. Aba ba PF fipuba fye. They are buffoons and are thieves. You people are you not aware of their offshore accounts? Useless Zambians.
