The late President Levy Patrick Mwanawasa on pages 211- 212 of his memoirs gave a very insightful and appropriate description of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s character derived from their encounters; he described HH as “An opportunistic cheat and a person who cannot be trusted”
Those of us who know Mr. Hakainde Hichilema know that this observation from Mwanawasa memoirs is true ;Hichilema doesn’t really care about Zambia; he only cares about becoming president – by hook or by crook no matter who he uses and abuses.
HH is not democrat; he is an insecure coward of a dictator who has never been elected in his life. He is like a leech that thrives on other peoples sweat. Hichilema reaps where he has not sown.
His appointment of our beloved old Guy Scott is evidence enough that HH has no morals or defined political ideology, he is just a chancer looking to cheat and mislead as Mwanawasa rightly observed. We all know that Dr. Scott is not enjoying the best of health and he deserves a rest after contributing immensely to our development of Democracy but why is HH risking the old man’s life by giving him unnecessary Political pressure? By and large, we are left wondering what HH has seen in Guy Scott after insulting him that he was the most stupid white man. Has Guy Scott become a wise man now that elections are a few months away?
