UPND's Hichilema Meets President Banda

Except Courtesy of (click the title for the full story)

"United Party for National Development UPND- president, Hakainde Hichilema, says his meeting with President Rupiah Banda should not be politicized.

Mr. Hichilema says he met the president to consult with him on a range of issues affecting the nation.

He says the meeting gave his party an opportunity to make suggestions on the economic recovery of the country.

Mr. Hichilema says the substance of the meeting was essential and it is up to government to accept the UPND proposals or not."


I am glad that Mr. Hichilema had a meeting with President Banda and if the substance of the meeting was what Mr. Hichilema said, then it shows that suggestions from our recent article titled "impotent governance" were correct. This is not the time for political grand standing but rather a time to pull together as Zambians and solve our nations problems. I only hope that the president listened and took what Mr.Hichilema said seriously.
Therefore, there is no need for Mr.Hichilema to defend his meeting with the president.
