Opinion: Mwaitaya Mudala HH!

It is always wise to manage excitement. We saw this excitement from Mr Hakainde Hichilema through that live stream of his rally in Lukashya constituency of Kasama to drum up support for his party’s candidate in this week’s by-election.

He has been in Lukashya campaigning peacefully, he has met several people who have given him a warm welcome without any problem. But then, he fails to take charge of his mouth when the people applauded him and ends up using a derogatory word! His choice of words at that rally revealed who he truly is – a foul mouthed man.

We are not so surprised that he said what he said; he has finally come out to reveal his true image and not that which he claims to possess. That Bemba word he used to communicate a message to the people that turned up to listen to him is distasteful, and not expected of people who claim leadership and aspire for the country’s top most position! It was an insult not only to the people who attended that rally but the entire Bemba kingdom and for that, he must be brought to the pedestal of dishonor and be told forthrightly that his choice of words was way off mark and not expected of leaders of this country. He is not different from the kaponyas that have no morals or manners to write home about. It’s no wonder he fails to even spend a second to condemn the thuggery and violence of his cadres and ends up justifying most of the shameful acts they have been engaging in.

You see, you cannot lie about your true character forever. A few people can be fooled here and there but with time, one’s true character finally comes out to the fore and becomes difficult to hide, which is now the case of Mr Hichilema, Mr Bally. If he can spew such things at a public rally without shame, we shouldn’t expect him to do any better beyond the insults he has shown us he is good at. A true Bally should lead by example and show the young ones how to conduct themselves in public. Nobody can walk with their head high if their bally is a master in vulgarity.

Mr Hichilema definitely crossed the line here and every Zambian who understands the importance of morality should not hesitate to call him out on this. Supporting that will be nothing but high level mediocrity.

  10. Harry Chinkumbi

    Context matters. If you hate him, already, then aitaya. But for those that love him, that was nothing. Besides, they hear that word

    • What do you mean

      Confirming that he insulted? If it was a mistake let him apologise. If it was intentional no need to apologise because that’s his hidden nature

  11. Ms

    He will never rule.

  12. St. Luciferus

    Hahaha, actually, hearing him use that word has made me make up my mind that am voting for him. That aggression is what we have been asking for. He is no longer the businessman but a politician!

  13. If not

    Using the word chikala to an audience comprising of all age groups is nonsensical. Mostly this word is used among folks.

    • Pharaoh

      IF NOT has spoken niceliy with some sense in it. Though some people may say “Malumbo”. Yes we may agree but it has a specific time or environment, in a jokingly manner,it can be directed to your best friend of the same age .Am affraid and not in support that such a word could be be used on an audience with different sex, age.Its true many people may conclude that the man was not considerate or not selective when he such a word at a public rally.

  14. Cozcowjr

    “Dad bafikala wants to see you” translate this ilumbo in tonga.

  15. If not

    That wasn’t fun at all but stupidity from hh. Among the people he was addressing some were more like his parents , uncles, aunties, brothers, sisters.

  26. Jata Pay

    We are happy that HH is a street loving guy. By saying chikala i now know the pain he feels on my behalf because i cant say how much damage the pf government has done to my suffering felow Zambians

  27. Anonymous

    I can’t t believe he had the time to write all this meaningless blob. He could have used his time to understand why the PF is losing or simply watch some memmes on Facebook to soothe him. Sorry boss. Kuya bebele😅

  28. Wandi

    Chicolor is going to win

  29. HervRena

    When one sounds”chikala chine” just know that him doesn’t have one..!

  30. Buju

    We have more important issues to pursue, value of the kwacha, corruption, stealing of national resources…why not use your energy on these serious issues. I’d rather be insulted by one who is not corrupt than one who gives me peanuts and still steals from me

  31. Big People

    Even if it was me, I would have insulted bcoz what PF has done to our country Zambia. And even if you say he insulted I will still vote for him

    • Mulelekwa

      Why majoring in minors….WHY HH and not late Michael Chilufya Data ,GBM or Chishimba Kambwili.Have you ever had time to listeni to any of those…..stupid tribalists hiding behind one and Common lexical item. Have you ever considered the scale of damage made to our country as a result of the currently THUGGERY in the sphere of POLITICs come on grow you shallow minded Citizen.

  36. Jk

    E/P has names like Thole, Mboro, Mafudzi and does not become an insult when one says ‘iwe Mboro come here’ The Tonga dictionary defines chiral as a shallow well or shallow mindedness.

  37. John

    Right an insult is an insult


    Chiikala is a kapnde word from Kongo.
    It is composed of chi_means giant thing, and ikala _ meaning sit idle.
    It thus giant organs that are idle and not functioning according to purpose
    In the context hh used it refering to dishing out cash during, campaigns, it is not an insult at all.

  39. u know it

    Only time will tell
