Quotes

"What did the freedom fighters envisage this country will be 50 years down the road? Is it what it is today? Since the PF came to power on a platform of lies and deceit the country has witnessed repression, the country has witnessed violation of fundamental human rights, freedoms and liberties, bias public media coverage, police brutality, political violence of unprecedented levels I never thought I would live post 1991 to see a country that has so much political violence."
He added: "Money can still be sourced if we know the cost of the referendum but we have not yet got to that stage so let us avoid getting ahead of ourselves."
"We are concerned when one of us is not around, especially when the head of state is not among us, it gives us a source of concern and we are praying that he recovers very soon" she said in an interview with Radio Phoenix
"These People have defected to a party which has a vision because they have seen that MMD was the only party which had their interest at heart" he said
