Edith Nawakwi, the leader of the opposition party in Zambia, the Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD), called another opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema a”dictator”.
Hichilema, the leader of the United National Development Party (UPDD, always refuted the election results in Zambia when the country holds them). Recently, the Zambian government led by President Edgar Lungu called for a national dialogue, and Hichilema urged Zambians to ignore this call. “Now I am back to ensure that no dictator will be given a chance to enter the State Chamber,” Nawakwi said.
“Hichilema is a dictator who cannot be given a chance to see the State House.”
Addressing the observer for Zambia in Lusaka this morning, Nawakwi said that the leader of the UPND had a negative attitude towards Zambia, so he did not want a dialogue.
“I’m here, I’ve returned for one reason, which is not to let Hakainda Hichilem go to the State House,” she said.
Meanwhile, Nawakwi also condemned the religious groups and accused them of being sponsored by the UPND to cause confusion in Zambia.
“These are not real church leaders, but UPND supporters who must be condemned in the strongest terms,” Nawakwi said.
