On the night of April 10th 2017, 500 heavily armed Police raided, gassed family and arrested the main Opposition Political Leader, Hakainde Hichilema. On April 12th 2017, HH was formally charged with Treason. The State is accusing HH because his motorcade did not yield to the Presidents' over the past weekend.
Over the past 3 years, there has been massive decay in the once promising young Zambian democracy. Today it is marred with Police Brutality, Victimization of dissent views especially private media houses, Toture and in some cases murder of those in opposition by those directly connected to the President with impunity.
Treason is an none bailable charge, with a maximum penalty of death in Zambia. We have seen similar situations around Africa too many times and we need your voice to stop this before Zambia becomes another statistic on the wars' record on the African continent.
We, as Zambians, are appealing to the European Commission to halt funding to the Zambian Government for the Kariba Dam, until this Human Rights abuse issue is resolved.
