The Young African Leaders Network has joined many condemning UPND aligned opposition political parties urging the international community to suspend aid to Zambia over the incarceration of Hakainde Hichilema.
YALI executive director Andrew Ntewewe said that the call to freeze aid to Zambia was selfish and would only hurt ordinary citizens.
Ntewewe said that it was irresponsible for anyone to push for the isolation of Zambia on grounds of the arrest and detention of an opposition leader.
Like FDD leader Antonio Mwanza, Ntewewe described the desire of the opposition trio as plain selfish.
Last week opposition leaders Nevers Mumba (MMD faction), Charles Milupi (ADD) and Mike Mulongoti (People’s Party) called for the IMF and other donors to withhold aid to Zambia to pressure President Edgar Lungu’s government release Hichilema
