After he was disrespectfully rooted out of the Zambian republic, the fearless comrade of Democratic Alliance Mmusi Maimane on Friday shocked his massive followers, when he insisted that despite the fracas and his deportation from Zambia, he will attempt to be in Lusaka on the next trial date of detained Zambian opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema.
“I have asked the Zambian High Commission to give me full reasons why they denied us entry yesterday in Zambia. They have assured me that they are going to come back to me about that issue,” Maimane said as he emerged from a meeting with Zambian High Commissioner in Pretoria Emmanuel Mwamba.
“Furthermore, we are not going to stay away. I have asked that at the next trial [appearance] of Mr HH [Hakainde Hichilema], we will go and attend – not because we want to meddle with the courts of Zambia, but we want to stand and ensure that the Zambian government acts in a democratic manner.
