UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has vowed never to stop party mobilization activities across the country despite many attempts by the PF Government to stop him.
The UPND Leader has called on party members to continue mobilizing the party at all levels saying there is not time for holiday especially with the current economic situation that requires their urgent intervention.
Mr. Hichilema says he has said it before that the country has numerous challenges that needs all to widely share ideas adding that stopping them from holding meetings like was the case on Friday in Kafue is certainly not one of the solutions that the country needs at the moment.
He says what is even worse is that PF members have continued having meetings in different parts of the country some busy campaigning in the guise of inspecting government projects.
He has disclosed to QFM News in a statement that in their meetings with traditional leaders, the clergy, and business community in Kafue before they were rudely interrupted, they learnt a lot on what is actually required to revamp the ailing economy and the urgent needs for economic diversification programmes that will create decent jobs for people especially the youths.
Meanwhile, PF Media and Publicity Vice Chairman Sunday Chanda says the best opportunity the UPND had to win elections was during 2015 presidential by-elections after the death of late President Michael Sata.
Mr. Chanda says the PF had little time to campaign as they were entangled with succession wrangles and that the UPND had all the time they needed to campaign.
And Mr. Chanda says the UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema will still shoot over the bar during 2016 general elections.
Mr. Chanda says it is illogical for the UPND President to continue thinking that the current social and economical challenges will work to the advantage of the opposition.
Mr. Chanda says it is unfortunate that leaders who are wishing to govern the people are celebrating over the country’s woes saying they do not mean well for the nation.
He says the PF has done tremendously well in its four years of being in office and that Zambians have so many reasons of keeping them in office.
He adds that the statement by the UPND that the PF is a one term project is baseless as Zambians will prove to him that they cannot trust him with power.
