UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says his party does not need to be intimidated or harassed as it carries its campaigns ahead of the 11th August 2016 General elections.
Speaking upon arrival on the Copperbelt at Kalulushi Airport this afternoon, Mr. Hichilema said his party the United Party for National Development has gone through harassment for five years of the Patriotic Front in power an act he described as undemocratic.
The opposition leader said this in reference to last night’s failed arrest of his Vice Geoffrey Mwmba and detention of UPND officials and their vehicles as they came from a Rally in Chililabombwe and Chingola respectively.
Welcomed by his Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba, United Democratic Front President Miles Sampa and other party officials, Mr. Hichilema who was accompanied by former Acting President Dr. Guy Scott and UPND Chairperson Mutale Nalumango is on the Copperbelt for the Official Launch of his party’s Campaigns.
