Nawakwi : No Party Can Work With HH ‘Hichilema Is Selfish And Has An Ego…’

Nawakwi : No Party Can Work With HH ‘Hichilema Is Selfish And Has An Ego…’

Nawakwi
FDD leader Edith Nawakwi says it is impossible for any political party to work with UPND under the leadership of Hakainde Hichilema because the man is selfish and has an ego.

But UPND deputy spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa has advised Nawakwi to concentrate on building what he called ‘the declining FDD’ instead of attacking Hichilema.

Nawakwi (right) said Hichilema had a singular belief that he was better than anyone else for the leadership of the country.

She revealed that Hichilema’s ego dated back to 2006, where he wanted to field all the 150 candidates across the country even though they were in an alliance of a tripartite nature, where it was agreed that FDD, UPND and UNIP should field 50 candidates each.

“But by the time I turned around, they even attempted to take seats where we were even most popular, like you remember Nkana. You remember, Mr Kazabu was very popular. He should have been in Parliament way back in 2006. They even wanted to get rid of a candidate like for Chasefu, the vice-president of FDD. Some of our councillors had to go out and stand on United Liberal Party. That is how self-opinionated and selfish the young man is. He is a highly self- constituted, self-opinionated and selfish individual. He does not look at the broader picture of the common good; he looks at his symbol. What drives him is his status and his ego to be big, if ego is not a big word itself,” she said.

Nawakwi advised MMD to go ahead and field their candidate in Mufumbwe because Hichilema was not someone who was considerate of other people’s opinion.
“His ego is bigger than his courage, it stems from his singular belief that he is better than anyone else in the leadership of this country as far as his leadership concerned. Hakainde believes that, and its correct maybe to believe that maybe one day he will be President, but his ego is larger than the office he is seeking. This issue about fielding candidates in Mufumbwe, MMD should just go ahead, if they want to field a candidate. If they wait for Hakainde, they will be disappointed,” she said.

She advised MMD leader Nevers Mumba to seek advice from people that had worked with Hichilema in the past so that he could have a clear picture of the individual he was dealing with.

“So, Dr Nevers Mumba, for all I care let me advise my brother, he should ask me. I will advise him that a lion can’t go in the same den with a hyena, they are both jungle animals. They can’t sleep in the same den, a lion has its own den and even the birds have their own nests. But to think that he has won an alliance with Hakainde! He should ask us who have been in alliance with Hakainde. It’s not a new story and we are fed up of this story about alliances. Alliances with Hakainde! It will never work. Can’t people learn from the past?” asked Nawakwi.

She also advised Mumba to consult former president Rupiah Banda on the behaviour of Hichilema.

“Maybe he (Mumba) should even consult Tilyenji Kaunda. He was very close to Hakainde during the alliance,” said Nawakwi. “So when I read stories from my elder brother Pastor Nevers Mumba urging HH to do the rightful thing over Mufumbwe, I say to myself, ‘what a joke’,” said Nawakwi.
Nawakwi was commenting on the differences between MMD and UPND on who should field a parliamentary candidate in Mufumbwe.

But Mweetwa said many Zambians did not take Nawakwi seriously on the political front because she was just one of the ordinary citizens who was trying to continue to drink from the cup of past glory.

“Instead of her continuing to talk about HH, we would like her to explain how she managed to auction a party that was big with a lot of members of parliament and reduced that party to only one MP now. The people are interested to know. She has been attacking HH on depleting UPND. What about herself,”
Mweetwa said UPND had not yet made a decision on the Mufumbwe seat as they were still consulting with stakeholders.

“For now she lacks the moral higher ground. In the time when we had an alliance with the FDD, the moment the campaign flagged off, she went underground. She was undermining HH. That is why HH performed badly. For Mufumbwe we haven’t sat with our various stakeholders. The only clear picture from the last elections is that UPND is firm on the ground,” said Mweetwa.

    Cheap politics in its rawest form yet again! for god’s sake we are not in an election period! Why cant these cheap politicians learn to ignore rubbish & concetrate on important national matters??? This is sickening!

    My prize still awaits a winner: “Any one with evidence of ever having seen HH telling a joke, laughing or smiling please let me know”.

  6. Trywell Chifita   September 13, 2012 at 1:37 am

    I do have evidence of HH telling a Joke. When he announced that he will be president of Zambia. I think that is the biggest joke with the amount of hate he has for Lozis, we saw how Saki was evicted from UPND, hate for Bembas, we saw how Chisanga was evicted from UPND. Now if you alienate these groups, who else remain to vote for you? That is why i think he is a Joke to be a president.

  7. Mbwantulyapapa   September 13, 2012 at 1:52 am

    HH has our support. You are using your own resources because of the love you have for Zambians. Go HH forward ever. Who is this Trywell Chifita to doubt you? He is just a cadre thinking with his stomach and tribe. Dead people, retired politicians or about to die politicians matter alot to Trywell Chifita. So Trywell you cant define democracy or you are not aware of different dialects in Zambia. Who does not know that Nawakwi’s dress in the picture was bought when they went to RIO+20 conference? Who is joking in politics between Madam Nawakwi and HH?

  8. Ngabili   September 13, 2012 at 1:59 am

    Madam Nawakwi you are always supporting ruling parties especially if someones tells you to jump on a plane like the chopper you were using when supporting RB. MC knows well. He enticed you with a trip to Brazil. Today you can talk ill of HH. Allow HH to keep trying because his formula with you never worked. Actually your FDD is dying a natural death but I can give you a vote if you understand what you are doing.

  9. Pafita Finkubala (PF)   September 13, 2012 at 2:03 am

    I did like HH at first but now am beginning to like him the same way Chanda Chiimba made like MC Sata so is tumfweko some tumfweko fans on HH. I think HH you will have my vote in 2016.

  10. Trywell Chifita   September 13, 2012 at 2:42 am

    Mbantulyampapapaa, whatever your name you are petty. Am not sure whether you are male or female but reduce yourself to a simple dress for nawakwi. Let me tell you something, HH is the most selfish man i have ever seen. You people you think he has money. How much is he supporting vulnerable people in his company? What salaries is he paying them? if anything, the negative votes from southern province come from HH’s workers. So, i maintain, HH running for presidency nullifies a Tonga to rule Zambia. Zambia is for evryone and not for HH alone. Let him rest for other well meaning Tongas to try. HH takwe.

  11. AKASHAMBATWA   September 13, 2012 at 5:05 am

    HH BE ADVISED ZAMBIA IS NOT SOUTHERN PROVINCE SEEK TO HAVE A PARTY THAT HAS A NATIONAL CHARACTER NOT THE WAY THINGS ARE. REMEMBER IN A COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT, ORGANISATIONS THAT ARE SUCCESSFUL GO THROUGH A STRATEGIC THINKING PROCESS AND ARE SELF CRITICAL. REACTING TO MY SISTER NAWAKWI WILL NOT HELP.

  12. Debs   September 13, 2012 at 7:56 am

  17. Debs   September 13, 2012 at 8:57 am

    @trywell, thanks man, dnt u think the mega anormalise that ar being purpoted in upnd can b attributed to misguided leadership acumen by hh due to lack of leadership exposure in governance of national issues at wide spectrum rather than native interest?the chap’s assumed political charisma mit hav risen frm praises by hs tribsmate instead of the all country whch is wrong,he neds to mek a self introspction b4 he loses all his resources in vain,fact he hs faild to blend in @ presidential level cant he try as an mp/wardcouncilor so tht he debate in parliament?

  18. Teny   September 13, 2012 at 9:00 am

    We can’t understand what is going on with HH.

  19. am a serious PF DIE HARD.   September 13, 2012 at 9:09 am

    Nawakwi is useless FDD was a very strong party when she took it over but now it only has one member of parliament..Nawakwi is useless on the political front and cannot advise UPND. The simple issue here is that UPND is very strong in Mufumbwe and Mmembe knows that if UPND fields a camdiate they will take the seat unlike MMD which is weak and can easily be beaten by PF. So my advise to HH is that ignore tha ranking of Useless Nawakwi and field a candidate under UPND they seat will go to UPND.

  20. Ama rude   September 13, 2012 at 9:31 am

    HH chikala chobe why is it difficult for you to take advise from the public with right state of mind. you cant be president without the support of the people. you need the ,so do what they ask you to do. simple reasoning,

    I wonder why no one wants to work with Edith Nawakwi!

  26. jack mweemba   September 13, 2012 at 11:03 am

    if you need mufumbwe to be worn by pf you field in an mmd chap you will lose very badly. UPND will try and even get the seat if the PF will not use those MMD tactics Remember SATA wa MMD with Chiluba these guys know how to sort the opposition.

  27. KAWAYAWAYA   September 13, 2012 at 11:05 am

    HH has no future in Zambian politics. He is too power hungry and will never rule Zambia.

  28. C 1 Affairs   September 13, 2012 at 11:45 am

    We are endowed with reason which makes us to know what is right & what is wrong. What is right,is right & what is wrong is wrong & can never be made right even by the worlds most powerful ruler. Nawakwi is right & there is nothing wrong in her coments. Bravo Nawakwi.

  29. isaac   September 13, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    The truth is TONGA CAN RULE ZAMBIA JUST LIKE ANY OTHER TRIBE BUT CETAINLY NOT HAKAINDE.THE TRUTH WILL REMAIN INJURING THOSE THAT HAVE FAITH IN THIS MAN.HE CANNOT MAKE IT.

  30. Chandalala   September 13, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    Police, please give these fools the permission to hold their rally. They think that they are anything. Tongas are just something else. They are always fighting. They enjoy ifyongo, even amongst themselves. Me I lived Southern Province. They are crazy especially when someone is suspected of extra marital affairs.

    HH will not rule this country, forget.

  31. brains   September 13, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    Thanks for making HH popular with your negative postings. Remember Chanda Chimba on Ukwa. As long as you are not the only voter, watch the space.

  34. Francis Mwansa   September 13, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    HH is a wrong chap…

  35. cn   September 13, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    There are wise tongas in zambia,upnd please search within your party,look for someone who can be like mazoka.Its not that a tonga ll not rule this nation,but its the quality and behavior of your presidential material,the arrogance and selfiness.Yes he commands southern province because everyone knows no one from any tribe can win from southern if he is not from upnd but u ve wise people from southern even they may not ve money like hh.What drives upnd is the cash that hh has,if he did not ve money he would ve failed to run his party.

  36. Bullman   September 13, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    love or hate him HH is the next President of Zambia. Edith has no moral right to talk about HH. What is FDD? A PF ngo!
