The opposition United Party for National Development says it has not received an official apology letter from Economic and Equity Party President Chilufya Tayali.
We have noted media reports that the Economic and Equity Party (EPP) President Chilufya Tayali has apologised to United Party for National Development (UPND ) President Hakainde Hichilema and other people whom he could have offended.
Neither Mr Hichilema nor the UPND has received any official communication regarding the apology from Mr Tayali to date.
We wish to take judicial notice that some of the matters that are subject of the apology are active in court.
Therefore, normal legal processes should be followed in settling the matters outside or inside the court.
The UPND and President Hakainde Hichilema will respond to the apology in due course.
