Lungu says he is not happy with USA

 

imagePresident of Zambia Edgar Lungu has told ZNBC Journalists in New York that he is not happy with the statement made by America that Zambia has lost its democratic tenets.
Mr. Lungu said that America is supporting the opposition in the Country and believes whatever it said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lungu has maintained that privately owned Muvi Television should have remained closed along with the Post Newspaper.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lungu says it is unfair for Obama and his government to tie the closure of Media houses to a deliberate move of shutting down the opposition during the elections.

He however admitted that there was violence in the Country which almost resulted into a second Rwanda of Africa.

President Edgar Lungu however says it is very unfair for Obama and his America to be issuing statements that support the opposition without getting facts on the ground on whether elections were free and fair and the judicial system is not in a dictatorship moody.

On Saturday, IS Deputy Assistant Secretary of state for Africa Affairs Linda Thomas Greenfield told President Edgar Lungu not to turn Zambia into a dictatorial hub.

Ms Greenfield said the Obama administration will call for the application of both local and international laws if the 2016 Presidential election petition is not democratically concluded and enshrined in the constitution.
