Why panic if innocent, HH, UPND asked

By NOEL IYOMBWA
THE United Party for National Development (UPND) and its president, Hakainde Hichilema should stop panicking if he is innocent against the allegations levelled against him, PF Lusaka Province media coordinator Edwin Lifwekelo has said.

Mr Lifwekelo said in an interview that Mr Chilufya Tayali and FDD leader Edith Nawakwi are not accusing Mr Hakainde but simply playing the role of a whistle blower.
He said every person has the right to report to the Anti-Corruption Commission or the Drug Enforcement Commission if they manage to substantiate the allegations.
“Mr Tayali and Ms Nawakwi have not done anything wrong or accused anyone but they are simply playing a role of a whistle blower so it does not make sense to threaten them.
He said that Mr Hichilema is not a commoner but someone vying for the highest office hence it goes with anyone who wants to stand to be clean.
Mr Lifwekelo stated that it is in the UPND’s interest that Mr Hichilema is scrutinised in case he becomes president so that people know that he is clean hence he must clear his name.
“UPND must not panic but allow the complainant to prove and let Mr Hichilema defend himself. There has been a complaint which must be heard, someone is not innocent until proven guilty.”
Meanwhile, Mr Lifwekelo said Mr Hichilema is sending a bad signal to children by using bad language in public, adding that leaders must lead from the basics of integrity.
