MMD Lunte Menber of Parliament Felix Mutati has appealed to people in Eastern province to vote for United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema in next Tuesday’s Presidential By-elections to redeem themselves from poverty.
Mr.Mutati said the hardship people were facing will only be eradicated once they vote for Mr. Hichilema who has the capacity to do so.
He was speaking at a rally to drum up support for Mr.Hichilema in Chipangali constituency in Chipata district.
He stated that all the provinces are rallying behind the UPND saying he was optimist that eastern province will follow suit.
Mr. Mutati said the violence being perpetrated by PF shows that they have no capacity to run the country.
He further said eastern province depends on agriculture to take their children to school such that there is need to have a leader who can improve on the sector.
Mr Mutati further stated that teachers have no houses and yet they have a huge task of teaching children whose ratio was at one teacher against 200 pupils.
“Roads, bridges are still not accessible here in Chipangali because they have not been worked on by government, hence the need to vote for a serious leader who will deliver development”, he said.
He stated that he was happy with the turn out for meetings in the districts he had been to like Katete, Vubwi, Chadiza and Sinda.
Mr. Mutati also stated that PF presidential hopeful has already shown that his delivery of development will be that of copy and paste as already shown by copying ideas being highlighted by UPND on how they will tackle issues once voted into office.
