UPND Sinazongwe Member of Parliament, Richwell Siamunene, says he has no regrets supporting President Edgar Lungu and the Patriotic Front (PF)’s development agenda.
Mr Siamunene, who is also Defence Minister, says this is because President Lungu is the only one among all Presidential contenders who is capable of providing sound and visionary leadership.
He was speaking at Chikuni in Monze yesterday when he and Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda, addressed a public rally in the area where 250 UPND cadres also defected to the Patriotic Front.
Mr Siamunene said since aligning himself with the PF Government, Sinazongwe has seen unprecedented levels of development which have changed the development landscape of the valley district.
He told the meeting that there is no need in clinging to the opposition UPND which he said would never form government.
Mr Siamunene encouraged all the people of Southern province to emulate him and support President Edgar Lungu’s visionary leadership.
And Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda, said he is disappointed that Monze UPND, Jack Mwiimbu has failed to deliver development to the people.
Mr Lubinda said the opposition MP has lamentably failed to improve road infrastructure in the area.
