HH lacks political merit, cannot run government – Sunday Chanda


UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema cannot be entrusted with running Government and national affairs because he lacks political merit, Patriotic Front (PF) vice chairperson for media and publicity committee Sunday Chanda has said.


Mr Chanda told journalists on Monday that Mr Hichilema is not ready to form government and is desperately trying to get the attention of Zambians.


Mr Chanda was reacting to Mr Hichilema’s sentiments during a press briefing at which he alleged that President Lungu has lamentably failed to run the country.


Mr Hichilema accused President Lungu of allowing among other things, the depreciation of the Kwacha against the United States (US) dollar and undertaking international trips in order to accrue allowances.
But Mr Chanda said Mr Hichilema should seriously reflect on his continued attacks on President Lungu.


He advised Mr Hichilema to offer solutions to the challenges the nation is facing instead of incessantly attacking President Lungu.
“The PF under President Lungu is working hard to better the lives of people. What the opposition needs to do is to offer alternative solutions,” he said.





  1. Government is run by people not an individual. We believe in the separation of power. Unlikely the current government which believes in the intimidation of its citizens hence their inadquace in governance due to lack of consultation.

  2. The ruling party should also concentrate on finding solutions to mitigate the many challenges that the country is facing rather than respond to every simple remark passed against them.

  3. That’s the reason why UNZA students had to beat you. Chanda talks nosence. How can one support the removal of subsidies at a place where they don’t. Anyway keep on riding behind.
