Zambia’s president Hakainde Hichilema warns coup plotters

Zambia’s President Hakainde Hichilema has warned potential coup plotters not to threaten the country’s democratic rule and stability.

Hakainde Hichilema said he won’t allow lawlessness to prevail despite tough living conditions.

It is not clear why he gave the warning, but it comes at a time when several coups have taken place in Africa.

Taking to Social media after his visit to the Kanyama, Hichilema expressed gratitude for the support received from the people and warned coup plotters.

He said: “However, to colleagues that think, we are timid by being kind and that they can break the laws and entertain thoughts of illegal take over of government including undemocratic coup d’état, our only word is that; We are coming for you and we will not allow you to make Zambians start running around as is the case in some places.”
