PF has no regard for rule of law – HH

Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema says the summoning of former republican president Rupiah Banda for questioning only proves that the ruling Patriotic Front has no regard for the rule of law.

Mr. Hichilema says it is funny how the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) can go ahead and serve Mr. Banda with a writ of summon when it is fully aware that he is protected by the law.

Speaking to QFM, Mr. Hichilema has accused the PF of having brought nothing but distraction of the rule of law to the country.

He states that the summoning of Mr. Banda can never be explained because he still enjoys his immunity.

The UPND leader states that the PF government should stop exhibiting desperation and concentrate on more important national issues that need urgent attention.

Meanwhile, Mr. Hichilema has sent a message of condolences to the families of the 54 people that died in a road traffic accident in Chibombo yesterday on board the Post BUS.

He says it is sad that accidents have become a very common feature in the country.

Mr. Hichilema has since called on authorities responsible for licensing vehicles and maintaining roads to do their jobs diligently.

The UPND leader has also called on government to begin looking at social security schemes in a more serious manner.

Meanwhile MMD National Women’s Chairperson Faustina Sinyangwe has accused the PF government of ruining the country.

Mrs Sinyangwe has since called on women in the country not to sit idle and watch.

She says it is time women realized that the PF leadership does not mean well for the citizens.

She expressed concern at the level of intolerance by the PF government stating that if the alleged PF brutality continues, the women in MMD will not relent to hold protest.

Mrs. Sinyangwe states that the women in MMD are ready to protest on their own without the support of other women even if the police were to deny them a permit.

She has since appealed to all women in the former ruling party to be vigilant and strongly fight for what is right for the country.
