HH plans to protest on independence day

United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema says he will tomorrow stage a protest to coincide with the country’s independence against what he has termed as ‘rampart abuse of human rights’ under the ruling Patriotic Front administration.

Responding to a question during a media briefing in Lusaka today on why he is shunning tomorrow’s independence celebrations, Mr. Hichilema says he does not see any reason for celebrating when the PF is busy abusing the rights of the majority Zambians.

He says he is not inciting anyone to join him in shunning the celebrations, but is reminding the Zambian people to reflect on what kind of suffering they have been subjected to by the PF.

Mr. Hichilema has called on citizens to ask themselves if the Zambia they are living in is the Zambia they want as they celebrate 49 years of independence.
