UPND national chairperson Mutale Nalumango says the party will utilise tomorrow’s Africa Freedom Day festivities by ceasing the opportunity to hold peaceful protests against the violation of human rights.
Nalumango has invited party members to come out in numbers and march for peace.
“Africa Freedom Day is the day that we remember as Africans as the day we gained freedom from our colonial masters. But now we are seeing that Zambia is going down the drain and we have to fight that. We cannot accept the misapplication of the public order act by people who feel they are above the law. As UPND, we have chosen to commemorate this day by having peaceful marches and protests,” said Nalumango.
Asked if she was not afraid of attacks from the ruling party, Nalumango said; “We have lived in fear for too long and it has now become normal.”
