President Hichilema commends ECOWAS

Economy President Hichilema commends ECOWAS

President Hakainde Hichilema has commended peace efforts by the leadership of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) aimed at restoring civilian rule to Guinea – Conakry.

This is in a wake of the unconstitutional takeover of power in that country by military armed forces which took place on 5th September 2021.

The President has emphasized the new dawn administration’s unreserved condemnation of the unconstitutional takeover of power in Guinea- Conakry and joins ECOWAS in their concerted and unanimous call for a total and brisk return to civilian rule in that country.

“As one of the architects of the African Union (AU) Charter on the unconstitutional takeover of power, Zambia does not support any form of unconstitutional change of government, and therefore reaffirms its support for a peaceful return to a democratic governance system in Guinea- Conakry,” the President stated.

The Head of State has further committed Zambia’s continued solidarity with regional, continental, and international bodies calling for the restoration of democracy and constitutional order in Guinea- Conakry.

This is according to a statement issued to the media in Lusaka yesterday by Special Assistant to the President and Presidential Spokesperson, Anthony Bwalya.


  1. I wish HH could choose better what issues to comment on internationally! Alpha Condé of Guinea executed a constitutional coup d’etat which attracted military coups by going for a 3rd term and holding a sham election and later imprisoned opposition and governance activists! How were people going to see better leadership other than thru a take over has it has happened!! Some of things it is better to just watch!!

  2. If I were HH I would be very careful here with the words you use; yes your administration’s unreserved condemns the unconstitutional takeover of power in Guinea but should also condemn such leaders like Alpha Conde who cling on to leadership by manipulating the constitution and he should also condemn these organisations like ECOWAS for remaining quiet when leaders do it.
