UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema vows to continue seeking international intervention over human rights violations by the Patriotic Front government.

United Party for National Development UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema has vowed not to stop seeking international intervention in what he describes as the Patriotic Front government’s violation of human rights.
This is despite advice that Zambia could pay dearly if the international community decides to withdraw their financial support for alleged human rights abuses.
Speaking to Breeze News, Mr. Hichilema says that Zambia is a signatory to international treaties that condemn human rights abuses and as such, the Patriotic Front government should be made to pay for going against the treaties.
He also dismissed assertions that only poor Zambians would suffer if the country was suspended from the commonwealth.
Mr. Hichilema states that Zambians are already suffering from the PF government’s failure to fulfil campaign promises.
He says that most of people are living in poverty while politicians in opposition are being arrested on flimsy grounds and being denied their right to hold political rallies.
Meanwhile newly appointed deputy minister of agriculture, Itezhi tezhi UPND Member of Parliament Greyford Monde faces expulsion from the party.
UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema says that Mr. Monde knows the consequences of accepting a ministerial position in the PF government.
Mr. Hichilema says that the UPND has a strict policy that states that no MP will accept to work with the PF government as minister or deputy minister.
President Michael Sata yesterday announced the appointment of Mr. Monde as deputy minister in the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock.
