President Hakainde Hichilema Misled:

‘Advisors mostly misled President HH on ECL’

The UPND has only two great weaknesses, the first is underestimating opponents and the other is failure to understand timing.

In politics there is always a window period in which to use opportunity, once that window period is gone the opponent becomes powerful and attracts attention or people’s sympathy, and when that happens, you lose control as President or government; that is the case with Edgar Chagwa Lungu. President Hakainde Hichilema has lost his time to sort out Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

Those who have seen the Game of Thrones can ask these few questions to relate the situation to President Hakainde Hichilema’s weaknesses; Who made the stupidest mistake on Game of Thrones?

✓Probably the worst was Daenerys not attacking King’s Landing immediately after arriving in Westeros.
✓But it wasn’t Daenerys’ mistake; she wanted to attack King’s Landing straightaway. The mistake was listening to the idiotic counsel from her advisor’s, namely Tyrion.
✓At the time, she was still naïve and trusting of the people around her. So instead, she followed Tyrion’s advice and attacked Casterly Rock, which had no strategic value whatsoever. ✓She lost all momentum and whatever advantages she had.

Daenerys was at her strongest at that moment, everything was intact, her Dothraki horde, the Unsullied, the Second Sons, her three dragons, plus an immense fleet of ships. She also had the Tyrells, Martells, and Greyjoys on her side. King’s Landing had no defense against her. Her dragons would have free reign, no scorpions, no Golden Company, no Euron and his fleet, and Missandei wasn’t a hostage. More importantly, Daenerys wasn’t the “Mad Queen” yet. She would have spared the people of King’s Landing.

With the Unsullied and the Dothraki facing the gates of King’s Landing, and her fleet in Blackwater Bay, she would have held all the cards, Cersei would have been screwed. Daenerys didn’t need siege weapons, not with her dragons, they would have taken out the gates and the walls unopposed. Or she could have just blockade the city, but Daenerys wouldn’t have that kind of patience.

After taking King’s Landing, Daenerys could then concentrate on the Night King and his army. Jon’s idiotic trek north of the Wall to capture a wight would have been averted, and consequently Viserion wouldn’t have been killed. The Night King would have been stuck north of the Wall, without the aid of Viserion. Otherwise so much tragedy and suffering would have been avoided.

Instead of wasting time on Bowman Lusambo, Ronald Chitotela, Chitalu Chilufya etc, President Hakainde Hichilema or UPND government should have gone straight for Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the fight corruption or inhumane activities could have been done by now. So far the ACC, DEC, Police etc have nothing to use against former President Edgar Chagwa Lungu because they lost the window period due to President Hakainde Hichilema’s slowness.

President Hakainde Hichilema lost those fights when he lost timing and when he underestimated his opponent.

As things stands the UPND government and President Hakainde Hichilema will keep being rhetorical until 2026.

Topline Details


    • @Mabisi first when I read your 3 word comment I had no clue the word malarkey meant so I ask her, this google, she doesn’t lie. This article, the writer is definitely a kookoo pfidiot just like the one that wrote the other article titled “Roller Meat” kwati alesekesha!!

  1. If you want to sort out your enemies.
    Two things,
    1. Barbaric one. Arrest, cage, restrict.
    2. Outperform in all areas of governance.
    Alas this emperor has non of the above.

  2. The failure to hold Mr. Lungu and his ilk to account is one of the major disappointments about the UPND regime. These fellows brought our country to its knees and yet almost three years into their rule, there are no significant convictions relating to the corruption and lawlessness of the PF except for Mrs. Charity Katanga’s case.

    A very dismal record! But it is not too late. The State can still lay a convincing case with solid evidence against Mr. Lungu. Even if they fail to lift his immunity in parliament, the nation will be left in no doubt about his being guilty.

    • Ba JMC, nothing can be done to Lungu because his friend is doing the exact same thing, despite the optics he generates to be consumed by his praise singers.

      I used to get insulted here when I used to say that this corruption fight is window dressing. I am sure you do remember very well the abuse I was given. Even these hardships we are facing now, I predicted a long time ago as soon as I realised he was a conman.

  3. So, ECL is corrupt but the man who has refused to move in state house and disclose assets and hides Zambia’s copper and gold money in offshore accounts is clean? Go to hell.

  4. It is too late to attack ECL now because it will only draw simpathy to him, besides he is the only one who will orient HH on being former president should he fail to make it in 2026 which is increasingly likely. The people especially women are complaining and they make the majority of voters, PF has managed to drive the narrative that UPND must concentrate on the economy and not individuals, good advice, but is the economy currently ticking? Your guess is as good as mine, so from now onwards to 2026, it is an upward race against time and things for some reason are improving from bad to worse, some of that is beyond the control of UPND but it still smeares them.
