United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema has warned President Michael Sata that if he arrests people who are demanding inclusion in government the country will go on fire.
Hichilema told journalists at UPND secretariat in Rhodes park that there is nothing treasonable in the Northwestern chiefs’ demand that their people should also be appointed to public offices.
Hichelama said the chiefs and their people are only asking to work together as a nation.
Hichilema told Sata to arrest him (Hichilema) before arresting anyone else and see what will follow.
Hichilema described President Micheal Sata as a malicious liar who thrives on rumour mongering and gaining political mileage through malicious actions.
