UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has stepped up his party mobilisation activities with a weekend trip to western province.
Mr Hichilema accompanied by senior party officials including former First Lady Dr Maureen Mwanawasa arrived at Mongu airport this morning to a thunderous welcome.
Addressing some UPND supporters who welcomed him at the airport, Mr Hichilema said the economic challenges Zambia is currently facing are purely own creation through leadership choices.
Mr Hichilema said Zambia has enormous economic potential that must be harnessed from every corner of the country.
‘We call on all our members countrywide to continue party mobilisation.
Many thanks to our brothers and sisters in Mongu, Western Province, who came out in thousands to give us moral support,’ Mr Hichilema said.
‘But these crowds must be turned into actual voters through the ongoing voters registration exercise. We shall not let you down and will unite this country once again even more regardless of where we come from.’
Mr Hichilema was yesterday forced to halt his campaigns on the Copperbelt after violent clashes between the PF and UPND cadres forcing the Police to fire tear gas canisters.
