A Zambian-based in the United States of America (USA) has described the state of Zambia’spolitics as boring.
In an interview with Pan African Radio News, Humphrey Malimba said instead of engaging the opposition in positive dialogue and finding the common ground to political problems, Government is treating people with divergent views as enemies.
Malimba noted that insults and shallow engagements have dominated the political landscape.
And Malimba has charged that United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema should not have been arrested because he did not do anything wrong to warrant a treason charge .
Malimba said if one considers the sentence of treason; the person can be jailed or put on death row on found guilty.
Malimba said: “people thinking that the arrest of Hichilema is a political maneuver to clash his spirit should think broadly and futuristically because they might just be the unsuspecting enablers and supporters of a very tiny, microscopic but slowly developing embryo of dictatorship that will in the end turn up killing everything that Zambia fought for on October 31, 1991.”
