The opposition UPND says it will be difficult for Zambians to take part in the suggested 11th August 2016 Referendum if they still remain without knowledge on it.
United Party for National Development Vice President for Administration Geoffrey Mwamba says Zambians need to know what they will be voting for during the forthcoming Referendum which will be held alongside the 2016 General Elections.
Mr. Mwamba says people are supposed to be informed and well aware of the Referendum process including their role during voting.
He says without them knowing what they are voting for or against, citizens should abstain from the process as it is wrong for them to take part in something they do not know or understand.
The opposition leader has however urged Zambians to turn up in large numbers during the 2016 General elections so as to choose leaders that will care about their needs.
Speaking in Mufulira on Wednesday during his on-going political campaign trail on the Copperbelt, Mr. Mwamba said staying away will only give an advantage to a party with bad policies to be in government presiding over their affairs.
And Mr. Mwamba has promised Zambians that no foreigner will be allowed to do businesses that locals can do.
The former Defence Minister in the ruling Patriotic Front adds that foreign investors in the UPND government will not override locals’ businesses as proper regulation will be put in place unlike the current situation were some investors have come to Zambia to do simple businesses like selling chickens and vegetables.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mwamba says people need to redeem themselves from poverty come August 11 2016 elections.
He further cautioned against voting on tribal lines but that people should vote considering who will help them acquire essential commodities at reasonable prices.
And speaking at the same Rally, former Lubansenshi Independent Member of Parliament Patrick Mucheleka says Zambia is bigger than one tribe and that all people should be embraced.
Mr. Mucheleka has since urged people to embrace each other as no grouping was more important than the other in Zambia.
Also present at the Rally was United Democratic Front President Miles Sampa who asked Zambians to forgo tribal talk as it will not bring development to the nation.
He advises that people should look at the quality of a leader to when voting and not tribe.
