Obasanjo’s Hypocrisy on Zambian politics
It’s sheer hypocrisy for General Olasiguni Obasanjo, a former military dictator, for intuiting that President Edgar Lungu is a dictator.
President Lungu, unlike Gen.Obansanjo, who first came to power via a coup, was democratically elected, and upholds the tenets of democracy and respects the rule of law.
Obasanjo should not even serve as an Observer of democratic elections, but rather be cited by the ICC for crimes against humanity.
However, a clique of frustrated politicians used him to agitate for Hakainde Hichilema’s release, the incarcerated UPND leader.
The release- UPND leader campaigners are now using African leaders and the clergy to speak on their behalf.
I urge the right –thinking Zambians to dismiss the Obasanjo’s comments with the contempt it deserves.
