Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS -

THE de­por­ta­tion of Pro­fes­sor Plo Lu­mumba was un­nec­es­sary and just dent­ing the im­age of the coun­try, UPND pres­i­dent Hakainde Hichilema has said. Mr Hichilema said it was such de­por­ta­tions of cit­i­zens of the world that was dent­ing the im­age of Zam­bia on the in­ter­na­tional scene, hence em­bar­rass­ingly shoot­ing Zam­bians in their own feet. This is con­tained in a state­ment made avail­able to the Daily Na­tion by the UPND pres­i­dent’s deputy press sec­re­tary Brian Mwi­inga. Mr Hichilema said as a party, the UPND had stud­ied the is­sue sur­round­ing the de­por­ta­tion of a highly re­spected aca­demi­cian and Pan African­ist Prof Lu­mumba and did not agree with it.
