NAREP Condemns MMD and UPND South Africa Press Conference
- Updated: February 14, 2013
THE NAREP National Youth League has condemned the stance taken by opposition leaders to hold a press conference in South Africa where they discredited Zambia and the Patriotic Front Government.
Earlier this week, MMD’s Dr Nevers Mumba, UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema and ULP’s Sakwiba Sikota held a press conference in South Africa at which they tried to con the international community into suspending Zambia from the commonwealth citing various human rights abuses by the PF government.
NAREP representative Aquino Sampa Mutale said the Opposition leaders should know better than to discredit, castigate and undermine the state of a nation on Foreign Soil.
“At no time has any Opposition Political Party been denied their freedom to hold Press Conferences from their respective Secretariats – not even Dr Nevers Mumba from his Kabulonga Home! Today we ask, why South Africa!?” he said.
Mr Mutale wondered who the opposition leaders think would suffer most if their wish to have Zambia suspended would affect the most.
“If what their demands to the Commonwealth succeed, who would suffer the repercussions? Is it not the very people they claim to speak on behalf of? Is it not the ordinary Zambian struggling to survive,” he asked.
