President Edgar Lungu has dared stakeholders planning to take him to court over his recent pronouncement on mandatory HIV testing to go ahead. President Lungu says his duty and responsibility is to protect the lives of Zambians and to see to it that they are healthy. The Head of State said this at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport shortly before departure for Rwanda to attend the inauguration ceremony of that country’s President-elect Paul Kagame. President Lungu says government means well; therefore Zambians should not panic or be scared following the pronouncement on mandatory HIV testing. He says it is unfair that some people are even labeling him a dictator simply because the landmark pronouncement he made. President says he cannot be a dictator when he is showing commitment in promoting good health practices. The President left KK International Airport aboard the presidential jet at 15:10hours and was seen off by now acting President Inonge Wins, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila, some cabinet ministers, defence chiefs, senior government and PF officials.

The ruling Patriotic Front has advised freed UPND President Hakainde Hichilema to stop using the language that has the potential to bring anarchy in the country. And the ruling party has advised the UPND Leader not to abuse the nolle prosequi that has been granted to him. PF Media Director Sunday Chanda says Hichilema’s remarks when he addressed his supporters at the party secretariat that he is ready to go back to prison if the PF does not stop the alleged arrest of his supporters was careless. Chanda says the UPND leader should commit himself to good principles of democracy and the rule of law and desist from making statements bent on bringing confusion in the country. He says such statements have the potential to undermine Zambia’s judicial system. But UPND and Hichilema’s lawyer Jack Mwiimbu says contrary to assertions that his client had not been discharged, his client could not be arrested on the same matter. Mwiimbu says the DPP did not enter the nolle but she dropped all the charges in the interest of the nation. Mwiimbu argues that as it stands Hichilema has no case and that PF cannot bring any charge against him relating to treason now or in the future relating to the same matter.
