Thousands of the residents in the area braved the scorching sun to listen to the campaign message of the PF leader.
Addressing a mammoth rally amid a chanting crowd, Mr. Lungu called on the border residents not to listen to listen to the lies of some politicians whom he described as power hungry.

Mr. Lungu also appealed to all the members of parliament in Muchinga Province to ensure that they deliver in their respective constituencies if they really want to return their seats in the 2016 tripartite election.
He has however, pledged to continue with the developmental projects that the late republican president Michael Sata had embarked on in the border town and elsewhere in the country.
