Gap between Lungu, HH narrowing – ObasanjoBy Diggers Reporter on 6 Aug 2017
Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo says he sees the gap between incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and President Edgar Lungu narrowing.
Obasanjo told journalists at State House after briefing President Lungu on his visit to Mukobeko that he was committed to ensuring there was peace in Africa.
“I see that the gap between the opposition leader, Hakainde Hichilema and His Excellency the president is narrowing and I think that we can move the country forward and put the issues of 2016 behind us. As an elderly African state’s man, I remain fully committed to ensuring that peace, stability are at progress and continue to exist, not just in Zambia but in all the 53 countries in Africa,” Obasanjo said.
Obasanjo condemned HH’s actions in the Mongu motorcade incident.
“I have looked at some of the videos regarding presidential motorcade and that of the opposition leader – are quite overboard. I think it should not be like that,” he said.
Obasanjo also thanked President Lungu for allowing him to visit HH with whom he had a two-hour long discussion.
“I am happy that His Excellency allowed me to visit and I had a two hour discussion with the opposition leader. I brought into his attention various issues regarding the need to uphold peace, unity and stability of the country,” said Obasanjo.
“I get an impression from the opposition leader, that 2016 is no longer an issue but about what happens in the future and how can we do things better.”
