Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has reminded Republican President Michael Sata that he is not the first one to be in government and should not abuse human rights.

Speaking during a media Briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Hichilema says it’s unfortunate that of the five presidents the country has had; only President Sata wants to allegedly destroy the democracy of the nation.

He says it is uncalled for, for the Police to tear gas mourners at a funeral house in Mambwe after suspecting that some UPND members were attending the funeral.

Mr Hichilema states that it is shocking that even after adhering to the provisions of the public order Act by giving Police seven days notice,they were forced to cut short their tour after President Sata allegedly ordered Police to hound him out of Chipata.

The UPND leader has also revealed that he is reliably informed that a new radio station allegedly belonging to PF cadres will soon be registered and be granted a national wide coverage, wondering what criteria has been used to give the radio station in question a national coverage license when Radio QFM
and Radio Phoenix’s national wide coverage licenses were cancelled.

Speaking at the same briefing, Political Analyst Dante Saunders commended Mr Hichilema for retreating from Mambwe District stating that this prevented more people from being injured.
