The UPND Leader boasts that a lot of serving PF and MMD MPs have seen that the UPND is the only progressive party in the country.
Mr. Hichilema boasts that a lot of them are just waiting to get their gratuity and that when parliament is dissolved; there is no doubt that they will join him.

And Former Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister Felix Mutati says Zambia’s economy has continued to limp because of lack of implementation skills on the part of government.
Mr. Mutati says if the country is to make head ways in economic recovery, government should improve its implementation skills.
Mr. Mutati says a few days ago the World Bank announced that it will provide about US$600 million to support the agriculture sector but wonders if this will successfully be implemented because of the history the nation has.
He has encouraged the government to ensure that they break all barriers that prevent it from effectively implement programs that are aimed at transforming the nation
