Chikwanda tells off Germany, month after Scott insulted South Africas

FINANCE minister Alexander Chikwanda says the government is keeping a close eye on Germany just as that country is doing on Zambia following local opposition political parties’ reports of infringement on their rights.
And Germany’s federal minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Dirk Niebiel says the opposition and the ruling party need the same rights to address their political points to the people in the country.
Chikwanda was responding to a question from a German reporter, who said the delegation earlier met leaders of opposition parties who complained of government’s infringement on their right and freedom.
But Chikwanda cautioned Germany that Zambia was also keeping an eye on them.
He said Zambia was one of the most civilised countries contrary to reports by the opposition political parties that the government was infringing on their rights.
