United States Ambassador to Zambia Mark Storella advises the PF government to be tolerant of opposing views for it to govern effectively.
This follows government’s harsh attacks on the opposition particularly the UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema, who keeps reminding the PF government to fulfil the campaign promises to the majority poor.
Mr. Hichilema recently alerted the nation to the growing tendency to drive the country towards the police state.

This is the first time a high ranking Western diplomat is issuing such a statement against the PF regime.
Senior government leaders have been issuing very harsh statements against the opposition, especially the UPND leader.
