AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL REPORT BASELESS, SAYS CHITIMUKULU

By PETER SICHALI

THE Amnesty International report on Zambia is a desperate attempt to instigate regime change, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba people has said.

Chief Chitimukulu urged Zambians to disregard any negative foreign influence aimed at createinga favourable environment for regime change.

The paramount chief said there was a certain group of people that always dared the police so as to justify the claims of human rights violation in Zambia. He said the Amnesty International report of Zambia was baseless and should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves.

“The report is the work of those that are instigating regime change by tarnishing the image of the country internationally,” Chitimukulu said the originators of the report were aware that the people they were supporting would lose the August 12 polls, hence the attempt to dent the image of Government.

He said the fake report was a clear testimony that they originators were supporting a certain group of people that would benefit from painting the current Government dark. Chitimukulu said the report was the work of those that wanted to discredit the current Government to create a favorable environment for regime change.
