HH’s America Trip Changes Focus

United Party For National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema on Thursday posted on this Facebook page, announcing his trip to the United States of America supposedly at the invitation of the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC to address the “State of Play in Zambia”.

Mr. Hichilema posted: “Fellow Zambians, please be informed that the Woodrow Wilson Center located in Washington DC, USA has invited us to address the “State of Play in Zambia.” We will share our views on how Zambia can attain meaningful economic development that will create jobs for our people, the state of human rights and the rule of law in Zambia, as well as our vision and mission as UPND in our presentation on Thursday 17th October 2019. Woodrow Wilson was the 38th President of the United States of America. The Woodrow Wilson Center was chartered by Congress in 1968 as the official memorial to late President Wilson. It is the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for the policy community. We will also use this opportunity of being in the USA to meet other stakeholders who have an interest in Zambia. Stay blessed and see you back home soon.”

Whether or not this invitation and the topic to be addressed by the opposition leader was genuinely a motivation of the Woodrow Wilson Center is under question.

The opposition leader has in recent times made questionable movements and held clandestine meetings, some of which discussed illegal acts of homosexuality which the Zambian laws forbid.

Quick calls to the Woodrow Wilson Center regarding Mr Hichilema’s purported event revealed in fact, the opposition leader was misleading the public.

“No, there is nothing on the public events schedule for Thursday. The only Zambia event this week, which was focused on relations with China, took place yesterday,” the Wilson Center representative said when called.

Realising that his trip was under watch, Mr Hichilema, later this afternoon, changed the focus and posted “The US is at the centre of global finance and we have been honoured with the opportunity to engage with a number of investors and fund managers, looking into sub-Saharan Africa. We must promote Zambia’s investment potential!”

What exactly is the intention of this trip? Will Mr Hichilema hide under the banner of an invitation by the Woodrow Wilson Centre to carry out clandestine activities in the hope of getting funding for his party?
What value does Mr Hichilema place on telling the truth?

These are important questions that every leader that has intentions of leading this country must address before they can mislead the masses.

    But your own site is carrying pictures of HH @ the Woodraw Wilson Centre. So wht do readers make of this? Interesting times we live in.

    • James

      HH and move we don’t want confusion in our country . we are not interested to here why you have been invited for .maybe you a removing to USA to organise in necessary weapons so that we have confusion in Zambia . Zambia is a peaceful country .that move you have taken is to run away from national prayers . we having dangerous prayers to those who don’t seek the face of God don’t head the the loving country Zambia

      • Bob

        So its fine pf to kill some?? Grow up mab

        • Concerned Zambian

          HH is going to sell Zambia on what capacity is he getting $25 billion money for investment. Investing on what. The Mazoka caused the pulling out of Agro after he lost election to MMD. This is exactly what is going to happen. Where he has gone to source fund pls don’t bring tension in Zambia. Ba HH is careless in talking where he has gone only lies as though there is fire in Zambia.

          • Frank Chombela

            So this is wht passes for intelligence gathering in Zambia! Hw can a citizen be the enemy? Intelligence is information gathered secretly on an enemy which you can then use to your advantage in any engagement with them. Does Zambia plan any engagement against HH?

    • Lipkwa

      This person, who thinks that is a journalist, lacks critical thinking. He uses very hateful and incendiary language. Why does he mislead people with his own opinions? Let him go back to school to learn critical thinking so it can help him change his perception and look at issues critically.

  2. dance

    Pf reporters woooooo!!!!you are always trying to decampaign hh by your lies, you are busy accusing him of things he does not even do in the quest of tarnishing his name. At first you accused him of supporting gaysm now it is homosexual. Just say the truth

    • Mpombo

      Probably trying to sale the country and bring homosexuality. Hope these Americans know how much tribalism this man has unleashed in Zambia. Forming and arming militias to attack other ethnic groups in Maala Namwala southern province after the 2011 general elections. Dodging prayers to go and meet satanists dressed as Masons. Sending unarmed cadres to kaoma to go and confront peaceful armed state police with bare hands and rocks. All these issues qualify to be declared as treasonable acts boma iyanga nepo before lives are lost

  4. Kiki

        Oh yes if HH is or was popular how many elections has ever won nil zero .what has he done for Zambia to admire. Only to enrich himself from the sale of mines. to fake investors and today talking rubbish about the economy of Zambia. Of which he contributed to the collapse of the economy some how.There is no jealous here .jealous of what let us see the fruit of his work first . by being an Mp Or or civil servant

    “Quick calls to the Woodrow Wilson “Center regarding Mr Hichilema’s purported event revealed in fact, the opposition leader was misleading the public.”

  19. Kubeja badala

    This ZR is an extension of So called PF interaction forum, this alias Chris phiri is non other than Sunday Chanda. He says he made a quick call to Woodrow Wilson centre but does not mention who he spoke to. What a jealous and bitter “reporter”

  20. Leonard Siame

    Zambia reports, be serious with your journalism.the post used to be pf support but when grz did something good they acknowledged.are you a pf branch? I don’t support hakainde but your writing leaves much to be desired

  21. sO sO

    HH and homosexuality are inseparable. The West are ;ooking for a person who is going to allow homos in Zambia as soon as possible. HH has offered himself to do that and as long as the West funds his 2021 campaign.
    You all know that HH promised Armageddon in 2016. He is now promising Sodom and Gomorrah before Armageddon. That is HH for you.

  22. Sosa

    chris Pig ur truly a pf kandile.Anyway! wako ni wako.

  23. Sosa

    When chiluba a big lazo declared Zambia a Christian nation,he even offered the Zambians to buy houses.What about chang Lu…..What else is he offering?is it the prolonged loadsheding periods or high mealie meal prices or the killings that seeing just to mention a few.

  24. Nonsense

    All this I read is just bunches of nonsensical views and reporting. I don’t support any politician myself, because I see it to be a mere waste of time. I just live life.

  25. Clergyman

    There is time for everything under the sun. When God says yes, non can say no and when it’s your time to go to church, wake up and go because once it’s your time, non can stop you enter the church. We shall worship together not so, it appears this is time my fellow Christians.

  42. Kicks

    If you want zambia to survive and re enstate its messed up economic stance, HH is the only man, otherwise, mukanyapo amenshi mu calo cenu, as if you don’t think. Because of the hatred which you have against him that why you have even made the economy to slide, instead of working hard to unite and build the nation, you are busy discussing HH because he is a threat to the pf leadership. chris phiri is a pf hopeless cooking stick. HH IS THE ONLY MAN TO BOOST ZAMBIA ECONOMICALLY, YOU HATE HIM OR NOT, IN LOVE WE SHOULD ALL SUPPORT HIM, not accusing him foolishly. I hope prayer, fasting and reconciliation has helped you so much, God be with us all.

    Mwana yebafinga yeukoma, No matter what ? HH is the new president for 2021. Shame to you who are against him

    • Mule

      Sosa you are at liberty to say anything but you must for think before you open you dirty mouth. Lungu has done to tell you has done a lot for this nation Zambia that was not done in UNIP and in MMD government . give credit where it is due. When you are talking about prolonged load shedding and hunger as you call it. You have the answer why we are through all this.Because of all we can not blamed the president because it is beyond human . God is the provider of rains. We don’t have enough water in our rivers for generators to run on full load hence shedding some areas. 2 About the so called hunger in Zambia there is no hunger there is only escalating price of meal meal. Where the is hunger you can’t find meal meal at all .but you are able to find it and buy it when you have money. Unless you talk of southern province yes there the is hunger because it never received enough rains. Then why should you blame the president because it didn’t rain well. Please don’t invite a curse upon your self. You same people when the president say let’s talk God you start mocking the president and refuse to pray to the provider. God only is the supreme provider. I you don’t ask you can not be given.. So you UPND you don’t know the power which is in prayer. You Will be surprised during voting though you vote for HH miraculously your vote will go to ECL because God is able to give to those who praise him. I liked HH but because he does not know God, he advocates gay, he has never offered any tangible solution but claiming he is an economist . economist for who .we can’t be all economists . Now he is cheating that he has sourced $25.8 for envestiment in which field .what a lie. Instead that he is looking for financies for his campaigns in 2021. Those are money meant for. But he should not for get what Mazoka did and how he died .he died soon after elections because it was difficult to pay back the money he used for elections. He will sell this county with his Small knowledge of economics . He thinks his career can make Zambia provide enough rains to stop what we are going through .He should not go out preaching lies about Zambia. Let’s behard working patriotic Zambians not going out begging .One day you will find Zambia sold because of money. I have money I have money .HH you were born naked and you die poor taking nothing on this earth just humble your self . i f God said you Will be president you will. Look at ECL who know that he can be a president just from nowhere there he is president. He never fought anyone neither insult anyone this is the works God. You can go anywhere whether America ,Britain and what of you and talk all sorts about Zambia and its leader ship any meaningful Zambian can’t accept that nonsense. It is like exposing what happens in you bed room in public please twapapata . this is not a good style of winning presidency. If it was in one party state I don’t know if you can find peace in you mother country thanks to the fighters of democracy. Lekeni balechita ifi fine .

  53. Ok

    For Sata it was rumored but for Hh it is a known fact that he is a member of a group that supports homosexual.
    So please don’t compare hh to Sata.

    As Zambians we will be compromising our Christian values to have such a president. So we say NO to Hh.

  54. Mutenguleni

    Chris Phiri is just a Dog, forgive and forget him

If it is chinese i would hav blieved but not America unless u except gay rights u receiver more aids and yo kwacha rate wil go down k2 against a dollar. Africa is more poor than b4 after president trump creat fake war with china 2 slow it investment in african countries include zambia. Normal man can not support gay laws bcoz u can’t a child if u are in same marriage but even right now are doing it secretly in zambia who are lovers of simple wealth without sweating 4 it. No direct benefit frm pf and same upnd support but this is a platform 4 opinion not insults. Social media is 4 all not social result is low thinkers but highly educated and lack wisdom

    Zambians lets stop fighting with HH the people to blame are the one in power for causing high cost of living. Instead of us Zambians talk about mealie meal price, high lever of poverty, load shading, joblessly people etc, but we are busy talking about hh who is not even in power. Lets reserve our talk until he become president if God allows him. But today ba pf nabonaola ichalo and not HH.
