FODEP praises Lungu for allowing UPND rally

The Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) has commended Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu for allowing the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) to hold its planned public rally in Kabwata constituency today.
FODEP Executive Director MacDonald Chipenzi said Mr. Lungu has shown mature leadership by allowing UPND to hold a rally.
Mr. Chipenzi said the intervention of the Home Affairs Minister over the holding of a political rally in Kabwata comes at the right time when the country’s democratic credentials where on the spot light.
He told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that Mr. Lungu’s intervention was timely and one that was done in good faith.
He said it was imperative that political parties were given an opportunity to share their views and aspirations with the members of the public through holding political rallies.
