‘HH not a prerequisite to dialogue’
“UPND president Hakainde Hichilema is not a determining factor to holding the national political dialogue and we are ready to attend the meetings with whoever is ready to come to the table and chat the way forward,”says PF deputy media director Antonio Mwanza. Speaking in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Mwanza said as far as the PF was concerned, there was no conflict between President Lungu and Mr Hichilema for the process to be seen as a two-horse ride because the latter was just like a child to the parent. “AS the PF, we have made it very clear that we are willing to sit with anyone willing to discuss without any conditions and the issues we are going to discuss are not personal issues. It is not about Hakainde Hichilema and President Edgar Lungu because there is no conflict between Mr. Hichilema and President Lungu. President Lungu is like a father while Mr. Hichilema is just like a son.
