New Hope Movement for Multi-party Democracy Vice President Reverend Rueben Sambo has accused Government of not taking interest in the arrest of party leader Dr. Never Mumba in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Speaking on the Hot FM Breakfast show, Reverend Sambo said the Zambian mission in the DRC has not been in touch with Dr. Mumba, a thing he says has resulted in the scanty transmission of information on the matter.
Reverend Sambo says the State has a responsibility of ensuring that Dr. Mumba who is a Zambian citizen is released regardless of his political affiliation.
He explains that it is unacceptable that information of Dr. Mumba’s arrest should only be transmitted through the media when the government has the right to protect its citizens.
And Reverend Sambo says the party will engage the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today on the arrest of Dr. Mumba. He has also refuted claims that Dr. Mumba travelled to the DRC to fundraise for next year’s elections.
