Zambia Denies Asylum to Zimbabwe Opposition's Biti
The Zambian government has said MDC Alliance politician Tendai Biti's grounds are not worth the relief he is seeking, and that he should return to Harare and answer to allegations in a legitimate court of law. Biti is being sought by the police over allegations of inciting violence that rocked Harare following elections and his illegal declaration of MDC-Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa as the winner.
