“He is a friend of White Capital and an enemy to the Africa and China Development Agenda”
Lusaka – Monday 22nd February 2016- African Governments through their local representantives shunned the luncheon invitation made by opposition leader of the United Party for National Development (UPND) Hakainde Hichilema.
The UPND leader last month wrote letters of invitations to Diplomats accreditated to Zambia inviting them to his house for a luncheon.
Although some Diplomats from Western Capitals attended the luncheon on Saturday, African, Asian and Chinese Diplomats accreditated to Zambia stayed clear of the suspicious meeting.
“We view Mr. Hichilema as one being promoted by Western Capitals, he is not a friend of Zambia or Africa or China and its agenda” says a senior member of the African Dipomatic Community.
“This scenario is almost identical like that of Morgan Tsvangirai and Tendai Biti on one hand, and the government of President Robert Mugabe”.
Robert Mugabe was supported by Africa and China governments during the political and economical turmoils of Zimbabwe while Morgan Tsvangirai was seen as a stooge of the West.
“Tsvangirai was always invited to Mining Conferences and Western Capitals, but the people of Zimbabwe refused to be used as tools of regime change”.
On Saturday, following an invitations made to all Diplomatic Corps to attend a luncheon at his house, China, Asian and African Diplomats stayed away from this meeting.
