Leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) Hakainde Hichilema has dared republican President Michael Sata to have him arrested for being against the re-alignment of districts in southern province.
Mr. Hichilema has advised President Sata and home affairs minister Kennedy Sakeni to stop searching for citizens to arrest but instead have him arrested.
He says it is dictatorial for the PF government to issue warnings to citizens that have different views from that of government.
The opposition leader has demanded that sanity returns to the democratic governance of the country which he says has been turned into chaos by the PF government.
Mr. Hichilema says Mr. Sata is now proving to citizens that he is a dictator in the manner he is deciding on national affairs without consultation from concerned stakeholders.
QFM News reports that speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka this morning, Mr. Hichilema has warned that the democracy of the country is under threat if President Sata does not change his perceived dictatorship type of governance.
And the UPND leader has advised president Sata not to abuse the Zambia National Soccer team by asking them to sing the Donchi Kubeba song.
Mr. Hakainde says the national soccer team is a team for all Zambians regardless of political affiliation.
The opposition leader has however congratulated the team for reaching the finals of the ongoing African Cup of Nation’s tournament.
