Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS - By NA­TION RE­PORTER

THE Zam­bia Di­rect Democ­racy Move­ment (ZDDM) says it is ready to fight for­eign­ers that have waged war against African govern­ments by un­der­min­ing and sab­o­tag­ing their ef­forts to de­velop their coun­tries. In a state­ment, ZDDM pres­i­dent Ed­win Sakala said the for­eign­ers in ques­tion had fought al­most all Pres­i­dents that have ruled Zam­bia, start­ing from Dr. Kaunda. “This for­eign spon­sored army op­er­at­ing un­der the um­brella of op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal par­ties and NGOs has con­tin­ued to take ad­van­tage of the ab­sence of a law against mis­in­for­ma­tion to cheat, plant seeds of hate and di­vi­sion, through mis­in­form­ing the peo­ple of Zam­bia. “Zam­bians are fail­ing to make in­tel­li­gent de­ci­sions be­cause this in­ter­na­tional force is dom­i­nat­ing the me­dia which is freely and with im­punity cheat­ing the peo­ple and wag­ing an ag­gres­sive and de­mo­niz­ing war against govern­ment,” Mr. Sakala said. He said for ZDDM the war is be­yond serv­ing po­lit­i­cal party in­ter­ests but de­fend­ing Zam­bia’s sovereignty and Chris­tian val­ues, which teach love and unity. “Zam­bia is a very rich na­tion with abun­dant nat­u­ral wealth which can save Zam­bians from the cur­rent un­nec­es­sar­ily wide­spread poverty. As a Chris­tian na­tion we know that the Bi­ble teaches us to re­spect lead­ers he al­lows to rule us in­stead of mak­ing them ob­jects of in­sults and cyn­i­cal lan­guage. “It does not mat­ter who oc­cu­pies State House they de­serve re­spect and be­ing op­po­si­tion par­ties does not mean that we are li­censed to fab­ri­cate lies and in­sults. As ZDDM we want a new era of civ­i­lized and pro­gres­sive pol­i­tics where po­lit­i­cal par­ties will work to­wards con­tribut­ing to­wards build­ing Zam­bia and not pro­mot­ing hate and di­vi­sion in the na­tion,” Mr. Sakala said. He added: “Many Zam­bians un­for­tu­nately don't re­alise that the vi­cious cam­paign of un­founded al­le­ga­tions of cor­rup­tion and fabri­cated sto­ries about Zesco and ZNBC be­ing sold to the Chi­nese are all part of a well-or­ches­trated cam­paign to force a regime change out­side the bal­lot.”
