UPND President Hakainde Hichilema completed his campaign tour of Western Province on Wednesday with the promise of developing the Province once elected Republican President.

Mr Hichilema said people in the Province were struggling when there are plenty of opportunities that exist in terms of agriculture which can thrive in the area.

Mr Hichilema said under his leadership his Party will ensure that it implements the 10 Point Plan and ensure that every child has the opportunity to go to school and create opportunities for adults to earn decent salaries through productive means.

“we have a vision for this country. Our vision is of a united, prosperous and equitable Zambia. Under my leadership delivery of the UPND 10 Point Plan will ensure that every child has the opportunity to go to school regardless of their gender or the wealth of their parents, and every adult will have the opportunity to earn a good salary through productive means.

“During our time in Western Province we have focused many of our discussions on the challenges and missed opportunities that exist in the agriculture sector today, which have seen farmers struggling when they should in fact be thriving. For example, the opportunity to grow rice in the plains throughout the year is clear. This is a vision we have. If we plan for this and invest then Zambia could produce as much rice as we produce maize. With a market ready in COMESA the industry can create jobs, help lower food prices and earn us valuable foreign exchange that will strengthen the kwacha after a turbulent period,” he said.

He also bemoaned the high prices of farming inputs and promised to reduce the prices of the commodity as soon as his elected.

He added that people should not be fooled by the ruling PF that they care about the Agriculture sector as they have reduced the budgetary allocation to the sector by 3.2%.

“We share in the frustration of our people in Western Province, and indeed across the country, that the price of fertiliser has doubled under PF from K150 to K300. This price must be brought down as a matter of urgent priority for the incoming government in August. Do not let PF fool you that they care about agriculture. Under their government the share of the national budget spent on the sector has fallen to a low of 3.2%,” he explained.

He also said his party is consulting the traditional leadership as partners of development.

“We have also continued our consultation with the traditional leadership. As a central partner in delivering development to our people, we remain grateful for their wise counsel to inform our planning,” he said.

Mr Hichilema’s tour included Mongu, Mangango, Kaoma, Sesheke, Shangombo, Senanga, Nalolo, Nalikwanda, Sikongo and Kalabo and Liuwa and was accompanied by ADD President Charles Milupi.

    • Those crowds are similar to the ones the vice president was pulling and she was more realistic in her campaigns than this under five chap. She was able to Sonta a lot of PF success stories in the province than mere rhetoric. The bad news for HH and UPND is that PF just need 30 to 40% of votes from western province to make it 63% of national votes. It is serious nativity and stupid to dream that UPND will win next months elections

    • THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR. PRESIDENT AND YOUR TEAM FOR YOUR HARD WORK GUYS IN THESE CAMPAIGNS. GOD WILL REWARD YOU GREATLY. MEANWHILE, THE RED DEVILS IN LUNGU’S PF CAMP ARE BUSY SCHEMING ON HOW TO RIG THESE ELECTIONS. THE REVELATIONS ABOUT MALUPENGA AND KAMPYONGO’S TERRIBLE RIGGING SCHEMES ARE A TRUE REALITY AND SHOULD CAUSE THE OPPOSITION AND ALL THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE TO REACT AND MAKE LUNGU’S GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT TO THIS SCANDAL AND SHOULD BE BARRED OR DISQUALIFIED FROM PARTICIPATING IN THESE ELECTIONS. ALL WELL MEANING ZAMBIANS SHOULD REFUSE TO BE USED BY THESE EVIL EGOCENTRIC ANIMALS.

    • BASED ON ALL THESE IRREGULARITIES AND ATTEMPTS BY PF TO RIG ELECTIONS, ZAMBIANS SHOULD REJECT THE RESULTS OF THE 11 AUGUST 2016 ELECTIONS IF PF IS DECLARED WINNER. NOW WE KNOW WHY THE PF WANTED TO CLOSE THE POST NEWSPAPER! THEIR SCHEMES HAS BEEN EXPOSED! PF ARE CRIMINALS!

  8. HH is right: Improving the production of rice, fish, milk, beef and cashew is viable in Western Province. HH has a clear vision for Zambia. We are voting for him not these criminals who have destroyed our economy and want to rig elections. Why is rigging of elections not treated as TREASON? RIGGING OF ELECTIONS SHOULD BE TREATED AS TREASON. MALUPENGA AND KAMPYONGO AND ALL THOSE ATTEMPTING TO RIG ELECTIONS MUST BE CHARGED FOR TREASON AFTER 11 AUGUST 2016!

    • @8 K Bwalya, I am not a cadre of any political party but I have been following promises from the two main parties PF and UPND. One thing I have noted is that in realistic terms PF has: constructed roads & bridges to make transportation of agric inputs and outputs affordable, started reviving the cashew nuts sectors, supported fish farming projects (Chief Inyambo’s project is good example), constructing Vet labs to combat animal diseases,developing transport and irrigation canals even the VP (Mrs Wina) referred to the irrigation schemes and the number of families planned to benefit from those projects. NCZ was resuscitated by PF,time for fertilizer distribution has improved. So, at least something is already being done by PF in the areas HH referred. What we need from him is how different…

  9. Kudos to HH and his UPND Team. Your campaigns are planned and announced in advance, orderly and inviting becoz people are not forced to attend. Yr Ten Point Plan is Inspiring and well articulated and presented to the audience. On the voting day we will reward u with our votes. Pse make sure our votes are not stolen by the PF thieves. Forward with Team HH and UPND.

  10. HH will carry the province but the margins will indeed not be sexy. I am thinking 150,000 to about 90,000. Not too sure but I would say that PF has done its homework in Western Province and should indeed perform better. I still see the PF getting a few MPs here. Perhaps 8 or so but nothing is guaranteed.

  11. Western lags behind because of its rigid customary land tenure system and some stiff necked traditional leaders. HH Kuwayawayafye- for the kalusa followers, enjoy this fantasy period because the reality is that PF”ll scoop the elections without a second vote- check the writings on the wall(crowds) and remove the wool blinding you- Ifintu NiLungu bane!

    • As one Lozi chief has challenged you tribal haters before, mention even one project that was not implemented because of the land tenure system in WP. You are just full of hatred for Lozis. You steal govt resources and stash then in Muchinga and your home areas and then want to turn around and blame Lozis for lack of development in WP.

  13. The plan and vision is pragmatic and clear for each province and region of our country. Our high levels of poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy are simply inexcusable. A new game plan for the Zambian Enterprise is craved for. You have my vote team HH and UPND. Ni Forward chabe:-)

  14. Dream on iwe kabolala wa privatization. You are going nowhere. The bedrock of economic development is infrastructure, such as power generation plants, bridges and roads. That is why the PF-led government built the Mongu-Kalabo Road, Sioma bridge, Sioma hydro-power plant and the canals in Shangombo, which now link Zambia and Angola. With such infrastructure in place, a conducive environment for investment in rice farming, fish farming, cashew nut farming, beef farming and all beneficiation (value-addition) industries has been created. So, the one with a vision is ECL, and not Mr Bitterman Kalusa. It seems Mr Kalusa intends to airlift produce from Western province to the urban markets. Likewise, it appears he wants to be airlifting farming inputs from production centres to Westen Province…

    • Your name says it all. The Party of Fascists did not develop any of the projects you mention in WP. All these projects were funded and contracted for by MMD before 2010, well before Satan could even dream of stepping into State House. The PF’s projects are the phantom projects of Lewanika University and Mongu Stadium of which not even a brick has been laid. The Mongu-Kaoma Road is a disaster and the Chinese contractor has stopped working on it for the last two years. PF is full of lies.

  15. Mean while one ECL is busy trying to camapign to people he insults day in and day out. The bantu botatwe are generally good people. They gave Chiluba in 1991 80% votes, but ECL has messed it up in that area. There is no message so sweet as unity in Zambia because of intermarriages that has occurred. The one who promotes hate speech should not be trusted becoz he may just end up igniting war unnecessarily. HH has been consistent on unity but as for ECL, he has been blowing out violence tribalism and hate speech through his agents ckambwili Mumbi chama and bwalya while hiding in the name of the church as a humble man. Its people who are neutral to judge if one is humble or not instead of showing yourself up through boasting.

  17. What unity has HH preached? Don’t lie to yourself. You don’t preach peace by declaring that there will be Armageddon in Zambia if the UPND loses this year’s election. Is this your definition of preaching peace?

    • Given the irregularities and attempts to rig elections by PF, UPND are fully justified not to accept the results if PF is declared Winner. It is that simple!

  18. @Huck Finn, you are right! People love to yap here with no knowledge! Western Province’s customary land with the chief being the custodian has led to failure to develop! Hopefully, civilization will soon reach every person when the province is opened up to other people and the chiefdom dies!

  21. I simply luv the pipo of the western province lies a quickly discussed and discarded and sakwiba is still alive which is good. As to why PF appears not to be campaigning rhat should concern the opposition as they might be speaking to themselves

  22. So when and if UPND lose, and if they do not accept the results then what will they do? Declare their own state? And where will be that state since HH now believes in One Zambia One Nation One People?
    One thing for sure, underfive is known for ultimatums to Edgar Chagwa Lungu in the Post, none of which has a time frame and none of which have been carried out.

  23. Reminds me of HH recent rally in Chipata. He told the people that he would set up a peanut butter factory in chipata to process their groundnuts and value. Meantime a factory was being officially opened the very next day!!! You can imagine how underfive the easterners thought HH was to be that ignorant, or even to ask questions where he does not know. But they, as the westerners too, know that underfive’s problems is the know it all syndrome, in the end he will build new roads next to those built by PF because he does not see them…yes a whole “president” cannot see…kikikikikiki

  24. Me I see a better share of the western vote this time around in favour of PF. HH ati Mongu-Kalabo road was Levy’s project. But Westerners saw for themselves that PF was constructing the road…..poor HH, no wonder Sata called him underfive politician, and he enjoys it and refuses to.matur into an adult politician.

  26. Because crowds came in large numbers only to be disappointed with the message full of deceit and lies about things which the crowds can see and touch for themselves. And those which are already planned by PF and waiting for implementation in the next term….. UPND can only underplay and mock Sontapo at their own peril.
    By the way why wasnt GBV at the western rallies, HH hiding the “shame of a running mate”?
