PF Skips National Dialogue Launch
The National Dialogue launched today at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. However, one important part was missing – the Patriotic Front.
Bishop Paul Mususu of the Evangelical Fellowship said that the absence of this key political player undermines the process.
Speaking at the official Launch of the process at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka today, Bishop Mususu said that dialogue remains the civilised way of dealing with challenges affecting any given nation in this modern society.
Those in attendance include the UPND’s Hakainde Hichilema, Elias Chipimo (NAREP), Andyford Banda (PAC), Nevers Mumba (MMD) and Fresher Siwale among others and the Civil Society movement, traditional leaders who included Chieftainess Nkomesha and some diplomats accredited to Zambia.
The Bishop noted that shunning the National Dialogue is another way of the PF running away from the challenges affecting Zambians.
The ruling Patriotic Front Leadership and other opposition Party parties namely the Felix Mutai Faction are missing from the official Launch of the National Dialogue process that has attracted a sizeable crowd.
