Zambia’s main opposition calls for peaceful
demonstrations against increased taxes

LUSAKA,  (Xinhua) -- Zambia’s leading opposition leader on Thursday called on citizens to embark on peaceful demonstrations to protest the numerous taxes being introduced by the government and poor governance.

Hakainde Hichilema, leader of the United Party for National Development (UPND), said it was evident that the government was not ready to stop introducing oppressive taxes hence the need for citizens to rise up and stop the trend.

He told journalists during a press briefing that the government was busy introducing various taxes in order to fund their luxurious lives after failing to secure funds from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Zambians, he said, should come together and unite by saying no the extravagance of the government, adding that peaceful demonstrations were fundamental human rights for citizens to express their views.

On Monday, the Zambian cabinet approved a decision to introduce a tariff charge on internet phone calls, a move that has received a backlash from stakeholders.
