Zambia Police Arrest HH, Charge Him With Treason

Zambia Police Arrest HH, Charge Him With Treason

Police have arrested United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema.

This was after Mr Hichilema was questioned at the Force Headquarters in connection with his recent statement alleging that the PF Government had sent youth to Sudan to be trained as militias, a statement he refused to retract.

Mr Hichilema is also believed to have been questioned in relation to his recent visit to Evelyn Hone College.

One of his lawyers who accompanied him to the Police
headquarters Sakwiba Sikota hinted to journalists that the UPND leader has been charged with treason.

Mr Hichilema has since been taken to the Magistrate court were the charges against him are expected to be read out.

Earlier Police were forced to change the room were Mr Hichilema was to be questioned from, after the UPND leader refused to be interrogated from upstairs in preference for a room on the ground floor of the building.

He cited the incident last week when he together with his cadres were tear-gassed on the second floor when he was summoned at Lusaka central Police.

  12. wildimpi   August 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Guess its time we respected the laws of the land . HH was favoured to be offered a chance to retract the statement and appologise. was that justice? no. that was favouritism. Today the man still want to walk tall. Well, too bad. Let him dance to his tunes. Period. Ba Government naimwe be serious.

    Bamugwila muyaya! ehe! Bamugwila muyaya mawenge kofi olomide Hikainde Hichilema!!

  14. mable phiri   August 13, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    this was pulished in the post. Kabimba confirmed that its true they are trying to send our youth to sudan. HH voiced against this as he thought it was not wise to send our youth to a war torn conutry. lets all be carefull lets we nd up like zimbabwe.

    what HH DID IS NOBLE!

  15. wildimpi   August 13, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Wise Zambians, tell me. What is it that we use to measure one’s intelligence?
    Is HH being arogant or stabborn?
    I will say ‘lets give him a chance to prove himself. I believe the man with all his lowyers cant go to these leengths on hear-say. If it turns that way, then he is plain st”pid. If not he will laugh out loudest. Let the circus begin!

  18. General Mushala   August 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Ba Tumfweko editor, you seem to be eager to accompany sata to the ICC at the Hague. I know the diet in a prison there is better than what Kabimba feeds you, but please cherish your country

  21. Mwanarob   August 13, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    HH is a great man.

  22. reignley_masambo   August 13, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    This is not good, Please free the UPND Leader. My advice to PF is that today it is UPND being castigated tomorrow it will be PF. No party can be in power forever. Remember that even some UPND members voted for PF president but it will not be so next time. We are watching how HH is being persecuted. Is he a threat? What is PF up to? Destroying all opposition parties! God help us to number our days!

  23. Joliman   August 13, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    Attan Shansonga freed in Denmark. Mutembo Nchito arguments to have him extradited to zambia deemed lacking merit and a full example of persecution.

    Mtembo Nchito & Zambia 0 – Attan Shansonga 4.

    Next case.

    Banda James 5 – Zambia and Mtembo Nchito 0

    Batumfweko machende enu anunka (your rotten balls). Get news from proper people.Who told you that HH has been charged with treason? U have lied to everyone who visted this page. We pay you idiots. Give us real news. HH’s charge is not treason.Tell the people the truth you swines.

  27. Him Dude   August 13, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Awe naimwe ba Tunfweko, which treason??? Why ubufi so. Get your facts right

  28. G Tone   August 13, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Its amazing to see how people are thirsty for hate mind you its just life nots so many are happy some are in total poverty because no one cares even the educated are being persecuted to show them that its who you know and were you come from we are all born equal regardless of tribe colour what if HH realy feels it, with his money he can simply wish to just live queitly and happly in some foregn country but his at Hone may be he knows how it feels to sit for hours on a desk and read tones of books only to find that no one really cares

  29. tallmike   August 13, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Normally it does not pay to peddle lies for one to achieve certain goals in life.Only the truth shall set someone to be free.
    I do not want to say brother HH is a liar,but the manner he has behaved of late prooves it to be so.
    Come on HH proove yourself inocent in the courts of law.
    To all supporters of political parties let us guide our leadership without fear or favour.Make them see reasons why they exist.they are not there for selfish gains or wanting to see govement fail but to make sure thing are going in the right direction.

  30. francis mulenga   August 13, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    hh you must be very carefully.this time we have only 01 president,mr sata.then who are you ka hh makaka. you apologies you lose are a joker,ulekana ifyo walandile makaka yobe.

    In court he will be asked to disclose the source of his info and he will refer to a blog article he may have been told about which may no longer be on the net. His lawyers will say he was commenting on a matter of public interest but the prosecution will insist that the matter was not a comment on a public matter but on a matter bordering on national security and bilateral political relations between Sudan and Zambia. he wil refer to peace keeping missions Zambian troops are sent to and the training they receive. The prosecution will aver that the Zambian troops on peace keeping are sent by UN and for peace keeping only. HH will be warned of the serious implication of peddling and toying with inaccurate security and military matters. Anyway before all this his lawyers may advise him to change his plea from Not guilty to Guilty and the trial Judge may, in the interest of harmony, enter a nolle prosequi……..HH will have learnt a few lessons from this episode nonetheless.

  32. chansa wi batiina bwingi   August 14, 2012 at 6:25 am

    No. the trial judge will throw the matter out as lacking merit.With costs to the state

  33. Pye Pye Pye   August 14, 2012 at 8:07 am

    I cant read from the context anything relating or talking about Treason charge. Kanshi aba bantu baba shani ubufi. Tunfweko……..

  34. NKOLE   August 14, 2012 at 8:54 am

    How can HH be a president if he stands to be telling lies which means he will invite battle in this nation through his lies let people with facts challenge my points if am wrong .

  35. Sceptic   August 14, 2012 at 10:51 am

    @kapuli wa ng’ongo, you seem to be making an intelligent “anticipation” of the way the case might go. Could you elaborate more?

  36. kakolwe   August 14, 2012 at 11:15 am

    @Kapuli wang’ongo (tesical with a hunchback?) Where do you hide with your sensible contributions?
    In a twist of events, your case may find HH guilty @ slap him a long sentence, then Sata comes in with his herbius Corpus! HH goes fre & Sata gains political milage out of it. & they lived hapily ever after.
