United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema has told hundreds of Choma residents who gathered at Choma Sports Club that the UPND’s target is to eradicate poverty.
Mr Hichilema says it is unfortunate that the PF is directing Zambia Police to harass innocent individuals who want to listen to messages of how together we can build a better Zambia.
In reference to the brutal beatings and shootings by the Police on Choma residents who had gathered to receive him and his team, Hichilema said that only a party that is losing elections would resort to instilling fear in the people.
Meanwhile, the UPND President has called on the people of Choma and across the country to remain peaceful despite the economic challenges they were going through.
Meanwhile, UPND Vice-President for Administration Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba says it is clear that only a President like Hakainde Hichilema would save Zambia’s economy.
And his counterpart, Dr Canisius Banda adds that Zambia is a unitary State and that people must reject PF as it is perpetuating divisions.
The UPND President and his team have since left for Lusaka, after meeting it’s supporters and aspiring candidates in Southern Province.
The UPND leadership was in Choma as part of the countrywide party mobilisation meetings aimed at harmonising aspirants and insuring unity and peaceful elections ahead of 2016.
