We shall not watch Democratic Alliance turn Zambia into a circus – PF

Filed under: Breaking News,International News,Politics |

The ruling Patriotic Front through its media Director Sunday Chanda has issued the following press statement warning that it will not allow the Democratic Alliance ( DA ) of South Africa turn Zambia into a circus.


This comes after the DA leader Mmusi Maimane notified the Zambian government that he wanted to come and visit his incarcerated counter-part Hakainde Hichilema who is facing treason charges.

Below is the statement:




Kasama, Zambia – The Patriotic Front is aware that South Africa’s Democratic Alliance (DA) – an alliance comprising of the country’s Colonial Rulers, is planning on travelling to Zambia on a political theatrical expedition; a mission which will be led by its black token Mmusi Maimane.
To ensure that his intended political clowning attracts the kind of publicity desired by his pay masters, Maimane, will allegedly travel with a media contingent.
While we acknowledge that they (Maimane and Hichilema) have a duty to their masters/funders, we wish to make crystal clear that they will not turn Zambia into a circus while doing so.
We thus wish to encourage Maimane to adhere to the guidance provided to him by the Zambian High Commission in South Africa. Furthermore, it is common knowledge that there is an explicit court order detailing who can visit the incarcerated Opposition leader and it would be rather unfortunate for Maimane to violate the prescripts of this order which will find him in conflict with the laws of our land.
Regarding his media contingent – it would be imperative for Maimane to note that before any foreign media house can undertake any media related activity in Zambia, they must be accredited with Zambia National Information Services (ZANIS) under the Ministry of Information.
The Patriotic Front therefore expects that the DA front will comply with these requirements as failure to do so will prompt us to seek counsel from our Ministers of Information and Home Affairs respectively.
We wish to reiterate that Zambia is not for sale to the highest bidder and society must continue to frown upon these mouthpieces of capital masquerading as political messiahs of our people.
It’s only yesterday that the architects of the DA championed and benefited from the notorious apartheid regime and today they have come back with a Black token to reverse the gains of Freedom in Post-Apartheid South Africa. Their bitterness and ideology however cannot be concealed and this was recently seen when DA Leader Helen Zille took to Twitter to remind the masses that *”Colonialism wasn’t ONLY negative”* – an appalling statement that we are yet to see Maimane take action against.
