Commonwealth Envoy Pursues Hichilema’s Freemom

An envoy of the Commonwealth, Patricia Scotland, has concluded a second round of meetings with incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.

Scotland, who earlier met with President Edgar Lungu, is seeking the release of Hichilema.

Hichilema is charged with treason for allegedly endangering the life of the Head of State.

But observers believe the charge is trumped up to punish an opposing voice.

Details of the meeting held between Hichilema and Scotland on Monday remains confidential.

BELOW IS A STATEMENT FROM HICHILEMA’S PRESS OFFICE

    Good moves by the Commonwealth Secretary Patricia Scotland to pump sense in HH.But Patricia Scotland knows that there are no “Animal Farm Laws in Zambia like in other commonwealth countries” or in other powerful democracies like the USA.Patricia Scotland should also tell HH to apologise to the Zambian people through HE ECL for the incovinience caused to the Zambian people so far after loosing the elections.

    It only pays to respect the will of the people otherwise even in sports you respect the verdict of officiating persons, that sounds like democracy.

    We thank the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Patricia Scotland for coming in at the right moment to consolidate the reconciliation process initiated by the Catholic Bishops. The Bishops and Ms Scotland must be commended for the job well done. The christian and the legal persuassions have saved Zambia from the tension experienced which threatened the country’s peace we have hitherto enjoyed.
    To the two groups we say well done and thank you.
    God bless you all.
