ZDDM rushes out at Lameck Mangani

LAMECK Mangani
The Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) has expressed surprise by the observation made by Patriotic Front (PF) Eastern province chairperson Lameck Mangani that calling former president Rupiah Banda to active politics amounts to an act of treason.

The ZDDM has wondered what has lead Mr. Mangani to begin think of asking the police to charge with treason people who want Mr. Banda to come back to active politics.

In a statement to Qfm, ZDDM president Edwin Sakala has described Mr. Mangani as frustrated man who has been allegedly rejected twice by the people of Chipata Central and that he should instead remain silent if he has nothing better things to do than threatening people in province with treason.

Mr. Sakala has however expressed happiness that President Michael Sata has appointed Mr. Mangani as PF Eastern province chairperson as he will allegedly only destroy the PF in the province because there is allegedly nothing he can do boast the PF in the area.

Mr. Sakala has observed that threatening the people of the Eastern province with treason as Mr. Mangani has allegedly done is also shooting himself in the foot and that he should instead apologize to the people in the province.

The ZDDM has charged that instead of him threatening people of Eastern province, Mr. Mangani should in fact thank them because they are allegedly trying to serve the country from the hands of the PF.

He has since maintained that the ZDDM want Mr. Banda to form a government of unity which can have leaders of various political parties working together.
