This follows the letter of reply on Chiefs and Traditional affairs in which President Sata dismissed Mr. Hichilema’s letter date 27th December, 2013 as unconstructive and useless.
Mr. Hichilema says he does not believe President Sata’s call for peace is sincere, stating that such a call is aimed at deceiving the Zambian people.
Mr Hichilema has told Qfm in an interview his doubts of President Sata’s call for peace is based on his nature which he says is allegedly not surrounded by peace going by the record of his political career from the UNIP to the MMD days.
He says President Sata’s call for peace is a camouflage he is allegedly using to continue breaking the society down.
Mr. Hichilema says the letter he recently wrote to President Sata was genuinely meant to remind and advise the Head of State to allow the Bemba Traditional Council to choose their own Paramount Chief Chitimukulu.
He adds that as a person aspiring for higher political office he believes the role of the government is to ensure that the traditional councils choose their own leaders.
