PF Secretary General Davies Mwila says there is something wrong with UPND president Hakainde Hichilema’s head if he does not count how many times he has lost elections.
Commenting on Hichilema’s remarks that he does not count how many times he had lost elections because fighting for freedom was not an easy undertaking, Mwila said said any normal person should be worried after five election loses.
“A normal person must get worried if he is losing elections every time. You can’t lose elections five times and you start saying that you can’t count even when you lose one. I will give you one specific example; I was MP for Chipili for 10 years I lost once and you don’t expect me to go back because they rejected [me]. So, he has been rejected by the Zambian people five times. He lost in 2006, he lost in 2008, he lost in 2011, he lost in 2015, he lost in 2016,” Mwila said.
“So he must get concerned as a human being, as a normal person, he must get concerned that if he is losing, he has lost five times, you just get concerned. If he does not get concerned there must be something wrong in his head. Yes there must be something wrong in his head. You can’t lose an election every time.”
He said Hichilema was a dictator who had failed to lead the party into holding a general conference.
“The problem that he has, he is a dictator! Look, you can’t be a president in a political party for more than 10 years, he has been a president and he has never gone to the general conference. The Zambian people must see if this guy is given power what is going to happen to the Zambian people? Because he must lead by example in his own political party to ensure that there is democracy in the party but if he has just been alone, no convention, no election and you expect him to come and lead Zambia in a better way? No! Zambians must reject him completely! And he has nothing to offer. Anyway, us we are ready for him, come 2021 he will see what will happen,” Mwila said.
He said Hichilema could never be President of Zambia because he was only popular in Southern Province.
“So how is he going to win with only one province? You can’t govern this country if you only have support with one province, that is the challenge that he has. They cannot win, they can’t win! UPND can’t win elections. I have told you, you can’t win an election with one province, Southern Province, how? It is not possible! They can’t win, they will never win! As long as they are with HH, they will never win!” Mwila exclaimed.
Meanwhile, Mwila said the fact that NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili and his Democratic Party counterpart Harry Kalaba wanted to form alliances with other political parties was a sign that their formations were no longer factors.
“Chishimba Kambwili and Kalaba were saying that they will form government, what has come in their head that they will go in an alliance? It means that they have no support. We have been telling them that you are not on the ground. That is why now they want to partner with HH because where is Kambwili? The political party is finished, DP is finished. That is why they want to be swallowed by HH,” Mwila said.
“Even the winning of Roan, we told him that ‘you cannot win, NDC cannot win elections alone’, they won Roan because they were helped by UPND. Now they have proved themselves that they are nothing, the have no popularity. That is why they will be swallowed.”
Mwila said it was not possible for UPND and NDC to field one candidate for the Lukashya and Mwansabombwe by elections as the two parties were selfish.
“All of them are selfish, when did they start that? it has never happened and it will not happen. Come the 27th, we will have nominations, you will come and tell me if they will field one candidate. They are too selfish! They can’t do that, it is not possible. Each one of them doesn’t want to be led, they want to lead,” said Mwila.
