HH condemns deportation of Prof Lumumba
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.
