Wright Musoma, the ZRP president says he shall conduct protests if President Hichilema would be unwilling to make Zambia a permanent member of the BRICS group which has opened invitations to other countries.

Mr Musoma said by permanently joining the BRICS, Zambia would greatly benefit from the global community whose economies were fast growing.

He said BRICS was an emerging bloc which would greatly benefit the country and that it was only right for the head of State and his government to consider joining the group.

Meanwhile, Patriotic Front (PF) Deputy Chairperson for publicity Emmanuel Mwamba has also echoed Mr Musoma’s sentiments and said the move would greatly benefit Zambia.

He said so far, BRICS had admitted Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

Mr Mwamba said Zambia was even better off leaving other international organisations lead by the west which did not greatly benefit the country.

“For me, I just want to appeal to President Hakainde Hichilema to ensure that he joins the BRICS on a permanent basis because the benefits will be too much for Zambia,” Mr Mwamba said.

He said the countryies that were part of the BRICS block were those that had been all weather friends to Zambia from time immemorial.
