United Party for National Development (UPND) National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango revealed that the opposition UPND will tomorrow participate in Africa freedom day commemorations through matches and peaceful protests across the country.
In a statement made available to the media today, Nalumango said the UPND’s participation in Africa freedom day commemorations will be in form of protests against the violation of human rights in Zambia.
Nalumango noted that UPND membership and the general populace have for a long time now been living in fear of the oppressors hence the need to unshackle the country from political and social bondage.
She highlighted that the Africa freedom day is an important day as it symbolizes people’s resolve to retain their freedoms especially political and social freedoms.
Nalumango stressed need for the current generation to protect and defend the freedoms and rights such as rights to associate and assemble as demanded for by the continental founding fathers.
The UPND National Chairperson has since said that UPND will use the Africa freedom day to speak against repressive laws in Zambia like the public order act.
