EU Calls For Calm In Zambia Despite Rising Political Tensions


Political tensions in Zambia have increased over past weeks and in particular with the events surrounding the arrest of opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema in recent days.

According to the EU spokesperson, “The Zambian people expect all parties to engage in dialogue to contribute to a peaceful and democratic society and to respect the rule of law.”
