President HH has not been invited to attend the state funeral for the late founding father of the nation Kenneth Kaunda.

He is the leader of the largest opposition political party in Zambia while Sean E . Tembo has been invited.

Advisors have missed another opportunity to do things right, hopefully the president is not aware.

MEDIA ANNOUNCEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Today we have the official state funeral for our Late Founding Father of the Nation, Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda (MHSRIEP).

In addressing the Nation last evening, President Lungu announced that attendance is strictly by invitation.

We however note with great concern and regret that we as Upnd Alliance and President Hakainde Hichilema in particular has no invitation to this National moment. Not even the current UNIP President has been invited, a Party that the late President founded.

We therefore want to inform the Nation that our physical absence at the State Funeral is in no way deliberate, we equally take the opportunity to urge Government that they must recognize that Opposition political parties and their leaders are stakeholders in Governance and therefore must be recognized as such.

This major lapse in ommiting key state holders on the list of invitees is indicative of a total collapse of systems and speaks to incompetence.

THABO KAWANA
UPND ALLIANCE MEDIA DIRECTOR.

  1. @Matumbo, show us the card if he has been invited. We have seen Sean Tembo’s card. You’re the same characters who are now going to the mountain top to denounce HH that he’s this and that. Shame on the office of the secretary to the cabinet for this gross incompetence if at all it is or it’s a calculated move to discredit HH
