Hakainde HICHILEMA,
JUST DO THE RIGHT THING

THE SECURITY of Zambia’s sixth Republican President His Excellency Dr Edgar Chagwa LUNGU is a State matter.

It is squarely and firmly in the hands of Mr Hakainde HICHILEMA, our current Republican President.

Now tell me Hakainde HICHILEMA, my brother, just how did those bandits go past you as you were guarding ECL last night?

You see, what happened is a veritable breach of national security.

What does this break-in say about your guarding competences and skills, sir?

Irregardless of whatever circumstances that surrounded the transion last year, ECL made good and required history, he PEACEFULLY handed over the instruments of State power to you [or was it to MUSIWA?].

Thanks to ECL, Zambia indeed remains in the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE globally as far as peaceful transfer of State power is concerned.

Zambia leads.

Thanks to ECL, Zambia remains a shining beacon of democracy in the world.

RB, KOROMA and KIKWETE are all witnesses to this reality.

Do the right thing, my friend, look after ECL.

As a matter of fact, look after all of us.

All citizens of Zambia expect you to provide foolproof security to our former heads of State. This is your responsibility and mandate as Zambia’s Republican Constitution dictates.

Hakainde HICHILEMA, you should listen to me, IT IS THOSE THAT SECURE OTHERS THAT SECURE THEMSELVES.

It is by giving that we are given.

Secure ECL today and the one who will succeed you as Republican President will also secure you.

Secure all Zambians and all Zambians will secure you.

I tell you, this high cost of living prevailing now will cost your presidency, my friend.

It is only in Zambia where when inflation falls poverty increases.

Stop this trickery, my friend.

If a former head of State is NOT secure then who is, Hakainde HICHILEMA?

What message is the State or the burglars trying to send to ECL?

Since you were guarding ECL this morning in the night, tell us Hakainde HICHILEMA, why was there a power outage at his house just before the break-in?

Tell us Hakainde HICHILEMA, was it just the TV sets that were stolen?

What was planted?

What would have happened if ECL was in the house?

Yes, what was left in the house by these burglars or agents, listening devices or something incriminating?

Tell us Hakainde HICHILEMA, is this a warning to ECL or it is just a ruse to search him or to change his security detail for nefarious reasons under the guise of strengthening it?

You see, my brother, because you slept on duty, now our minds are in over-drive, we have 101 questions to ask.

Hakainde HICHILEMA, this country belongs to all Zambians. Govern it well.

Respect the rights and freedoms of all citizens.
No dirty tricks, please!

Let the rule of law prevail.
Do NOT be vengeful.

This break-in is entirely your fault Hakainde HICHILEMA. See? It has now put egg on your handsome face.

We blame you for it.
The buck stops with you, nkosi yethu.
Do NOT sleep on duty, my brother.
GUARD US.

  1. It’s bad what has happened, I for one I don’t support it.But y should it happen when he is out. Y should it be him being the victim of theft among the past president. Thr is need for serious investigation into this matter.

  2. Apiligilimu aliye ulemu!
    Have some respect for our Head of State!
    Don’t you know the former president has police security?
    If there were lapses in security, why don’t you ask those who were on duty?
    In any case, the ones who have been frequenting ECL’s house in the name of offering solidarity must be the masterminds behind the thefts! It a PF inside job!
    PF Cadres are starving because Kasaka kandalama was taken away on 12th August 2021!

  3. Lungu should stop these visits to Swaziland.

    This Banda chap smokes some mad weed. Dobo has taken over his thinking.

    Imagine this man could have been our VP right now.

    I think God does exist coz we surely dodged 2 bullets, this dobo man and fat Albert. Phew!!!

  4. How can armed Police officers fail to secure the premises of the former Head of State? There is something wrong here.

    The mafia Government was the PF Government and such maneuvers can be engineered by the PF.

  5. I AGREE WITH ALLAN ABOVE. THE WHOLE THING MAY AVE BEEN ENGINEERED BY THE PF ITSELF IN ORDER TO DISTILL SOME POLITICAL CAPITAL OUT OF IT. THANK GOD CANINJAS BAMBA IS NOT OUR VICE PRESIDENT. HE IS TOO GARRULOUS! IN FACT HE IS A GASBAG!

  6. There is no way the PF can engineer this. They are not in charge of state police. Of course unless the police report to PF. PF lost power and is no longer on charge of the security of this nation.

    • Given Anyala Lubinds said they are still in control. Who are you to dispute?? PF police are responsible for this break-in

  7. Canisious Banda, stop being an asshole.
    Why did I say that
    Point namba 1.
    Lungu is and has been the most thuving and corrupt president in all of Africa, so what goes round comes round
    Point namba 2
    Why are you stupidly askin Bally this question, ask the police who look after Chagwa.
    Point namba 3
    We really didged a bullet with you, imagin you as veep for Zambia.
    Point namba 4
    You sound like a cry baby because you are not in government and are simply irrelevant to zambians. Go and cry to lungu of Esther.
    Point namba 5
    Just shut that hole in your face

  8. This idiot is so annoying and provocative. How does HH come into this diarrhea of the mouth from this rabid dog?

    We all know how it feels to lose when you miscalculate your fortunes and end up a shameless loser. The disease these idiots are suffering from is called lossidiotism and it is so prevalent in PF animals.

    Surely you expect HH to go and guard Lungu? As what? What is happening to Lungu is testimony that he has never been president legally. So mu bubwa bobe Canisius you bring HH into the wrong picture? Let your father the devil curse you with more madness. Kakoswe iwe.

  9. Iwe caniscious banda stop opening your a**s anyhow what kind of explanation do you want from HH is he a police spokesperson to give you a clarification, don’t just open your mouth like a mad man, you don’t even suit to be called a doctor but just a very big piece of shit,so this idiot doesn’t know where to report cases of robery sure what a shame, just taking the name of doctorate into a very big ashore

  10. This is a sad occurrence. Why call Nakachinda and PF leadership first instead of the Police? How can power be disconnected only to that house? Its not possible. Sunzu has not installed a geneset there? Thats surprising. We all experienced a power outage last night about that time here in Woodlands.Where are the so called supporters of first lady and the “security” personnel that Tutwa Ngulube talked about who he said always move with the former head of state?
    The many riff raffs that frequent that house in the name of solidarity are behind this so called theft. The nation had no idea Edgar was out of the country, but PF supporters knew. Check Tayali’s house, Nakachinda’s house, Tutwa’s house, abena Davis Mwila and so on, this could be a scheme by them to paint this govt bad. Just imagine who would have the courage to break into the house of a former head of state? It can only be the PF trained militia.
    As for Canicious, God surely loves this country. Imagine if he had not left UPND, he would have been this country’s Vice president!

  11. This Drama is becoming ridiculous. Report this to the police. Your unrealistic skims can be seen mikes away. Next you will start issues of security and asylum sighting security concerns. This is very sad.

  12. This is so sad and unacceptable. This must surely be a planned move. State police must be questioned, and appointments of those guards are done by the state. Someone must have been assured of protection and was well informed of former president’s moves.

  13. Mmm this feels like a planned move by pf to make people rise against bally. He is scoring too much. It will not work ba Nakachinda and ba Banda. You want political mileage, it won’t work. Where was security? Former senior army officers are guarded, elyo former head of state not guarded? Sounds fishy. Planned move by the cry babies.

  14. “he PEACEFULLY handed over the instruments of State power”? was there any other choice Mr. Banda? It is is not known who could have been killed if there was no PEACEFUL handover of power. That was just following the constitution. You will forever cry for the missed opportunity of a job, had you stayed in UPND.
    Calm down and find something useful to do.

  15. WHY ARE THESE BOYS IN PF VOMITING? ASK YOURSELVES WHY A PERSON OF LUNGU’S CALIBER CAN RISK TO HAVE HIS SECURITY 100% UNDER THE POLICE ONLY. WHERE ARE THE KALIMANSHIS AND ALL THE COMMANDERS YOU TRAINED IN SOMALIA? THEY HAVE NO JOBS DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO LET YOU LOOSE? CAN PF HAVE THEIR OWN WAY OF PROTECTING THEIR PRESIDENT? YOU AS A PARTY ARE RECKLESS, IRRESPONSIBLE AND VISION LESS. WE BELIEVE IT IS THE WORK OF THOSE MILITIAS YOU TRAINED WHOM YOU HAVE NEGLECTED.
    IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HH YOU ARE BEING PETTY. THOSE THIEVES ARE TELLING YOU A STORY ABOUT THEIR PLIGHT. AT LEAST EMPLOY SOME TO GUARD YOUR PRESIDENT BESIDES THE POLICE.

  16. PLEASE PF. THERE IS NOTHING TO THANK LUNGU FOR HANDING OVER POWER TO HH. YOU SOUND AS IF HANDING OVER POWER WAS THE PRIVILEGE OF LUNGU. NO NO. LUNGU WAS VANGUISHED AT THE POLLS AND HE HAD TO GIVE WAY. THE INSTRUMENTS OF POWER WERE NOT HIS PERSONAL BELONGINGS. THOSE WERE STATE POWERS. WE ARE TIRED OF HEARING HOW HH MUST BE GRATEFUL TO LUNGU BECAUSE LUNGU HANDED HIM THE INSTRUMENTS OF POWER. RUBBISH THINKING IN REVERSE AS USUAL. LUNGU BECAME USELESS TO THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE WHO OWN THE POWER, HOW THEN WOULD LUNGU CONTINUE TO HOLD POWER? DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

  17. At times I don’t understand at how some people think, imagine unknown people (thieves) break into the former President’s home, they steal two TV screens then someone wants to make an issue out of that? And yet the Doctor was alive and present when legions of soldiers and police officers were unleashed to go and invade HH’s house, they stole and damaged a lot of property there besides the lots of food they also stole and ate. It is unfortunate that such a thing happened at the former President’s home but that was just one of the few isolated incidences, because we have never experienced such a thing before. Moreover, we don’t need to exaggerate things, we should always try to maintain our objectivity when we comment on issues of national interest, what two TV screens compared to property worth millions of kwacha which HH suffered in theft and damages? My dear Doctor should also know that, it is not only the security of the former president which matters, but it is for every citizen, including him and me. If he is asking HH to tell him where he was when thieves were stealing from ECL’s home, let him also ask ECL, where was he when HH’s house was being attacked, teargassed and ransacked? it is him who was the President that time. Please see the pickle in your own eye first before you look into someone’s eye. These security men we have around are human and it is possible that they can dose off on duty, have you not read when king Saul was fighting David, one day, where he spent a night was just few metres from where David and his men were. In the night, David and his men sneaked into king Saul’s camp and found him and his men dead asleep, they even got the king’s spear and the cruse of water. Remember David in his Psalms said; thy word O Lord has made me wiser than my enemies, so the wise David blamed Abner, the army commander because he was the one in charge of the king’s security. So ba Doctor, the theft which took place at ECL’s house has nothing to do with HH, on this one, you have completely missed your point. The blame should go to the security officers who are deployed there. David told Abner that; “as the Lord liveth, you deserve to die because you have not kept your Master, the Lord’s anointed.” So let the security men explain and not HH because it’s them who had failed to keep the security of their master. Those who have good memory still remember that, during the time of President Sata, thieves broke into Dr. Nevers Mumba’s home and stole a lap top which had essential and confidential information but we never heard Dr. Mumba blaming President Sata, I believe he understood that the problem was probably with his security men and not President Sata.
    Dr. Banda, you stop blaming and accusing an innocent person, God will punish you for that, the President does not guard people because he also needs to be guarded and has guards who guard him. If his guards sleep on duty, thieves can equally break into his home and steal just the way they did at ECL’s house and it is them to be blamed. My last words are that, you are just misusing your opportunity and instead of always attacking your brothers, you can tap a lot of wisdom from people like HH himself, Nevers Mumba, Ng’andu Magande and many others. Remember, the wise men came from the East, I am sure you can be one of them.

  18. An inside job by myopic PF. They may have been some security men guarding the house whether ECL is their or not. This was a miscalculation by PF who never take responsibility for their actions next time we will start hearing that he is seeking political asylum.

  19. I agree that this is embarrassing to Government but again pointing fingers to HH in the hateful manner is equally misplaced. PF should learn to criticise on a sober mind, all the time they open their mouths they sound like the World is about to come to an end.

    Indeed there are a number of questions that need answers here. There were two armed Police officers. where were they when these thieves had all the time to climb the wall fence, cut the electric wires, jump down, start breaking the windows, got inside, started disconnecting the TVs, got outside the house and jumped off the wall fence ?

    How many people stay at this house ? Did ECL leave the former first lady all by herself, if so why do they live just the two of them in presumably a big house as such?

  20. Blame, Blame Blame game every time. There is a saying that a leader has a big head every person who throws a stone it will land on his big head. However, I you not surprised that the theft occurred when the so called former president was out of the country. Who know that he was out? Did he even tell HH that he was out of the country if he did not then why blame HH for that. Who knew that ecl was out? It is only PF who knew this and they are the ones who schemed the whole thing. Look at the burning of the markets who did that it was the PF who did that thinking that people will implicate HH in the scheme, but they failed.
    PF have not accepted the loss of power and they will do everything in their power to make people, which they are doing anyway, to hate New Dawn government because of the good governance we are enjoying in the country at the moment.
    This is the wakeup call to Police IG that if he goes to sleep PF will plant weed at night in the country exactly the way they are doing. Police please work up you should be a step ahead of your criminals so as to swat every maneuvers they may try.
