Opposition Says it is Under Pressure from Government

Opposition leaders in Zambia have declared that Zambia is now a police state under the PF regime and have condemned president Sata for threatening diplomats.

And the opposition has called upon Finance minister Alexander Chikwanda and Solicitor General Musa Mwenye to step down following the exposure of letters they wrote to the Development Bank of Zambia (DBZ) demanding that the public bank should write off the K14 billion loan which DPP Mutembo Nchito and Post newspaper owner Fred Membe owe the bank from the bankrupt Zambian Airways venture.

Speaking during a joint media briefing in Lusaka this morning, Heritage party president Godfrey Miyanda said it is within the constitutional right for the opposition to unite and speak with one voice on issues of national interest.

He noted that the opposition in the country is not against the corruption fight, but that they are concerned with the manner in which corruption is being fought.
