We will not rest until Lula is out of prison –  Dr M’membe

By Staff Reporter


SOCIALIST Party presidential candidate in the 2021 Zambian elections Fred M’membe has sent a massage of goodwill to the incarcerated former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula.


In a statement made available to newsdayZambia.com this morning Dr M’membe says the Socialist Party of Zambia was in solidarity with people of Brazil and President Lula over his arrest.


“Before coming to your homeland of Brazil, we had asked our comrades at MST if it would be possible to see you. We were told it would not be possible due to the very limited number of visitors you are permitted per week. As  a result we had no alternative but to write to you this short letter.” stated  Dr M’membe.


“You are not alone in the prison , we are with you and we will be with you until you come out. They have put the wrong man in prison- Lula. your jailers are the ones who should be in that prison, and not you. You are not a criminal , they are the criminals who should be in prison. We will not rest until you are out of there and the real criminals are put in there.”


He said as true revolutionary, the Socialist Party was aware that Lula was everyday strengthened by his innocent and humane convictions he held hold.


“These frightened little men scared of their own shadows because of the many crimes they have committed against the Brazilian people, cannot break you by keeping you in prison.” said Dr M’membe


Dr M’membe hoped to meet with comrade Lula soon as a free leader of Brazilian people with a common cause.
