President Sata on HH

PRESIDENT Sata has advised UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema not to dictate whom he appoints to serve in Government, based on the fact Mr Hichilema is an elected politician at neither party nor national level.President Sata has advised HH
The President said this in a letter dated July 12, 2013 to Mr Hichilema which the Daily Mail has obtained.
The head of State was responding to Mr Hichilema’s recent request that President Sata revokes acting chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda’s appointment.
Mr Sata said Mr Hichilema could have been in a better position to advise the President if he was an elected party president but since he is not, he should probably keep his advice to himself.
“I acknowledge your letter dated July 9, 2013. I will only respond to your letter when you tell me who elected you to the section, branch, ward constituency, district, province, let alone to the presidency of your party,” President Sata said.
