The Ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) has said that the hosting of the Democracy Summit is testimony that Zambia has now become a beacon of Democracy on the world stage.

Zambia will co-host the second Summit of Democracy on the 29th and 30th days of March, 2023. The first Summit for Democracy was hosted by the United States of America in December 2021. The objective of the Second Summit for Democracy is to underscore the Global desire for transparent, accountable and rights respecting governance.

Commenting on the hosting of the Summit, UPND Deputy National Youth Chairman Mr. Trevor Mwiinde said that the hosting of the summit is testimony of President Hakainde good governance record within a short period.

“The landmark hosting of the Second Summit for Democracy by Zambia is testimony of Republican President Mr Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND led Government good governance record within a short period. There are so many countries in the world but We were chosen to host it against the background of the UPND led Government strong commitment to the principles of democratic governance, the respect for the rule of law and human rights just to mention a few”, Mr. Mwiinde said.

Mr. Mwiinde then said that the pioneers of Democracy in Zambia like Second Republican President FTJ Chiluba must be proud of President Hichilema over the hosting of the summit.

“We strongly believe that the Pioneers of Democracy in Zambia like Second Republican President Dr. Frederick Chiluba may his soul rest in peace must be celebrating in heaven over Zambia’s hosting of this landmark Summit of Democracy. He must be very proud of President Hakainde Hichilema and we bet his telling President Nelson Mandela that look at my President HH and how good he is governing the country to the extent of being recognized by the World by hosting the Democratic Summit”, Mr. Mwiinde said.

Mr. Mwiinde then encouraged Zambians to celebrate the hosting of the event and encouraged them to ignore all those who are against hosting it.

“Lastly but not the least, We would like to call upon all peaceful loving Zambians to celebrate and be proud over the hosting of this landmark Summit. This summit is not only a win for President Hichilema and the UPND but a win for all Zambians because We are now in the Champions league of Democracy and the whole world wants to learn from Us. We would further like to encourage them to ignore empty tins who have shamefully been calling for Us to cancel the rare opportunity of hosting this event. President Hichilema has excellently governed this nation and these enemies of progress are shocked and blank”, Mr
Mwiinde said.

  1. Ikalafye iwe. Zambia has more important conferences than this puppet master charade. We have hosted the Commonwealth summit, the non aligned summit and many more. Yes you think Zambia is now more democratic because you as a Upnd official can do whatever you want without the police interference.
