SA’s Maimane to attend Zambian opposition leader’s treason trial

Johannesburg – Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane will attend the treason trial of Hakainde Hichilema, the detained President of Zambia’s largest opposition party – the United Party for National Development (UPND).

The treason trial will be held on Friday at the Magistrate Court Complex, Hibiscus Road, Lusaka, Zambia.

“As we celebrate Africa Day, the leader of the opposition in Zambia faces trumped up criminal charges brought against him by a government intent on reversing the gains of democracy in Zambia and in Southern Africa,” said Maimane in a statement on Thursday.
