Freed opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema of the UPND has told Students from various learning Institution that he is determined to vie for the presidency and promised that he would offer efficiency and effective leadership.
Hichilema or HH as he is commonly referred to says despite undergoing dehumanizing ordeal during his 127 days of incarceration, he would not wish to have those who threw him in prison go through that.
The UPND leader who was freed from treason charges last week disclosed this on his facebook page.
We were humbled to receive a delegation representing students from various learning institutions in the country who came to offer solidarity messages and encouragement at our residence.
In our interactions, we reiterated our desire to run affairs of our country differently and efficiently while fully respecting the people’s fundamental freedoms and rights based on respect for the rule of law.
We thanked them for their solidarity messages and informed them that we habour no grudges and hatred against anyone despite the dehumanising ordeal we went through in the 127 days behind Lilayi, Chimbokaila and Mukobeko prisons.
In sharing our prison experience, we told them that we would never want even whoever is considered our worst opponents to endure such dehumanising treatment as even those considered hard-core criminals must have some basic human rights and freedoms to enjoy.
Ours is a bigger picture of embracing everyone regardless of their political affiliations, as we want to run a country where citizens respect each.
We once more thank you for your prayers and encouraging messages you keep sending us.
Have a great day and God bless you all.
