MMD President Nevers Mumba has advised the PF government to consider using tax payer’s money to developing the country and addressing the many challenges that continue to affect the citizens.
Dr. Mumba has charged that the PF government has resorted to during tax payer’s money to destabilize the opposition in the country and MMD in particular.
The opposition leader has observed that there are a lot of needy areas in the country that require the attention of the party in government rather than attacking the opposition.
Dr. Mumba has told journalists in Lusaka on Sunday that it is also regrettable that Statehouse has continued to issue threats on the opposition in the country.
He says such a trend is very undemocratic and that with time the PF will pay for the injustices that it seems to be subjecting the people of Zambia to.
And United Liberal Party (ULP) President Sakwiba Sikota has it is incumbent upon President Michael sata to ensure tenets of democracy are upheld.
Mr. Sikota has indicated that the democracy of Zambia has continued to degenerate from the time that the PF went into government.
He adds that the PF government has been trying hard to silence the opposition who in most cases are advocates of the citizens on governance issues.
At the same occasion, Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) leader Charles Milupi wondered why the opposition was being stopped from holding meetings when the PF has been holding its political gatherings.
Mr. Milupi has since reminded President Michael Sata how he used to enjoy freedom of association the time he was in opposition.
Mr. Milupi what is more worrying is that the opposition is being stopped from having any form of political meeting including at grassroot level.
UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and ZDDM president Edwin Sakala were also present.
President Michael Sata has advised the opposition to seek sober forms of engagement with the Government.
President Sata has further counseled the opposition political parties to cooperate with specific law enforcement agencies mandated with the responsibility of maintaining law and order as opposed to creating unnecessary tension.
