Mansa MMD cadres match for Chiluba

Zambia_Chiluba_432_20090818Hundreds of people have staged a solidarity match in Mansa in support of the acquittal of second republican President Frederick Chiluba.

People drawn from all the districts in the province matched from Mansa Milling on Chembe road to the provincial headquarters.

The women and men, clad in MMD Chitenge materials, carried placards with messages in support of Dr. Chiluba’s acquittal.

The protestors were later addressed by MMD chairman, Michael Mabenga and Deputy National Secretary, Jeff Kaande.

Dr. Chiluba was acquitted recently on charges of theft of public funds amounting to $500,000 dollars.

His acquittal has been received with mixed reactions, with some sections of society urging the state to appeal against the court judgement.
