A Correspondent- Zanu PF has reached out to the new Zambian President, Haikaende Hichilema, and apologised for denouncing the then neighbouring country’s opposition leader.
Zanu PF senior officials, including President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba, recently made headlines denouncing President Hichilema for his allegiance to the MDC-Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa.
Charamba, early this year, posted on his Twitter handle pictures of Hichilema and Chamisa and labelled them sell-outs.
Charamba has never retracted his statement against Hichilema even though the then Zambia’s opposition leader is now the head of state of Zambia.
In a statement Sunday, Zanu PF secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu said his party respects Hichilema as the legitimate President of Zambia.
