Parallel universe indeed: NAREP condemns opposition for engaging Commonwelth

After being shunned by fellow opposition leaders for his treacherous double dealing, Elias Chipimo has now condemned the opposition for asking the Commonwealth to investigate violation of rights by the PF regime. Chipimo, speaking through his so-called National Coordinator Aquino Mutale , Chipimo says MMD president Nevers Mumba, UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and ULP leader SakwibaSikota should learn to place their priorities right.

But UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema justified the move by opposition political leaders’ visit to the Commonwealth secretariat in South Africa to request for the organization’s intervention in the alleged violation of Commonwealth values and principles by the Patriotic Front government.

Mr. Hichilema has told Qfm News that the move by opposition leaders to lodge a complaint to the Commonwealth Ministerial action group was not ill-intended but merely to find a lasting solution to the gross disregard of democratic principles by the PF.
