International Fellowship of Christian Churches (IFCC) President Simon Chihana has said the injustice of the justice in Zambia, is a very clear in a case of Hakainde Hichilema matter before the courts of Zambia.
Bishop Chihana said he is compelled to speak again because of the magnitude evidence before the nation outside the courts of law and the first person to break the silence that Hakainde Hichilema had not committed any treason was the head of state himself, followed by Religious Affairs and National Guidance Godfridah Sumaili and the latest President Lungu’s Spokesperson Amos Chanda on Al Jazeera talk show where he gave his views concerning the arrest of Mr Hichilema.
Bishop Chihana said since Amos Chanda is the Special Assistant for Press for the President, it means his views were the views of Mr Edgar Lungu who is the President of Zambia and that also means it is the ultimate official position of Government of the Republic of Zambia, that Mr Hakainde Hichilema President of the UPND is an innocent without even waiting for the courts of law to try and find out if he has a case to answer or not.
“And to my personal view qualify for setting Mr Hichilema free even without taking this injustice of the justice further, the Inspector General of Police has also come out very wondering what led to the arrest of Mr Hichilema in the manner it was done”
“Mr Kanganja openly washing his hands as the chief arresting officer. This leaves me to wonder, why then is Mr Hichilema still in prison cells, who is then responsible for his incarceration and what is the DPP doing about such a foolish and unwarranted act of injustice on an innocent soul and who should be held accountable for such unmeasurable hatred towards Mr Hichilema”
“As men and women that love our country and appreciate our unity and peace that was laid as a great foundation for our country Zambia by our fathers, we urge whosoever is behind the incarceration of our brothers to stop such madness and allow freedom of information, association and religion to reign in our mother land” Bishop Chihana said
