UN Boss in Zambia turns down HH’s meeting


UN resident coordinator Janet Rogan with President Edgar Lungu

UNDP Zambia country Representative Janet Rogan has turned down an appointment by the opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.

Hichilema who has accused Ms Rogan of having been involved in the rigging of the 2016 elections for Edgar Lungu and PF wanted an audience with the UNDP Boss on Wednesday.

But Ms Rogan who last week had a meeting with President Lungu said she was not available to meet Hichilema and did not indicate or give an other alternative date.

Her office stated so in a letter to Patrick Mucheleka, the UPND Deputy Secretary General.

In reaction, the UPND said they now have no other option but to go all the way and report Ms Rogan at the New York office.

The opposition UPND has refused to recognise President Lungu as winner of the 2016 elections saying the poll was manipulated.
