HH declares prolonged dry spells a National Disaster

Republican President Hakainde Hichilema – HH, has declared the prolonged dry spells that the nation is currently experiencing as a national disaster. This announcement comes as a wake-up call to the government and citizens of the country, as they brace themselves for the worst.

The declaration was made after a thorough assessment of the situation by the government, which revealed that the dry spells have already caused extensive damage to crops, livestock, and water sources across the country.

Speaking at a press conference, HH expressed his concern over the situation and urged the government and citizens to take immediate action to mitigate the effects of the disaster. He stressed the need for a coordinated response from all stakeholders, including the government, private sector, civil society, and international partners, to ensure that the affected communities receive the necessary support.

The President also announced a raft of measures to address the crisis, including the provision of emergency relief supplies such as food, water, and medicine to affected communities. He also called for the implementation of long-term solutions, such as the promotion of sustainable agriculture, water harvesting, and conservation, to mitigate the effects of future droughts -ZBT


  1. Useless man.

    Now that he has sold off all our maize to DRC, what will become of us? We warned him so many times to stop smuggling our maize, but his praise singers kept insulting us.

    Do not support nonsense just because it is coming from your tribesmate. You see the problems you have landed us in now.

    • The only useless person is you Indigo. What in his statement was not factual.
      What has HH sold. Please cite and educate us.
      On a daily basis we read your empty vile diatribe that just expresses the fact that your preferred person is not at the helm.
      So you want Lungu back. What is he going to better than HH?
      Tell us since you are so enlightened? Some people are such poor examples of humanity as they believe this world exists for them alone. Sadly there are millions of Zambians that were being given K20.00s by politicians as appeasement. That my friend is an insult.
      This President recognises the plight of Zambian people this is an effort to mitigate a situation, if you living in a cocoon that is devoid of reality. Zambians tried to be productive by growing as much food as they could.
      Extenuating forces have befallen the nation and the best you can do is denegrate the man?
      No wonder people insult you on a daily basis….please grow up and act with some sense of maturity.
      Ba Zambian observer there people whose comments you moderate. I honestly wonder why this person had never been blocked? Yes free speech but some people are just full of vile for people whose cause they dont even comprehend.
