Background: The leader of Zambia's Opposition African National Congress, Mr. Herry Nkumbula, has called on members of the congress to oppose any electoral candidates of the ruling United National Independence Party when the country becomes a one-party State shortly.
Mr. Nkumbula was speaking on Tuesday (21 November) at the opening of what will probably be his party's last national assembly before legislation is passed making UNIP the country's only legal political party.
The bill banning all opposition parties in Zambia was published on October 20, and is expected to be passed soon after Parliament resumes sitting on December 5.
