The opposition UPND says its leader Hakainde Hichilema has not donated any dust bins towards the fight against cholera.
Some images showing a dustbin with Mr Hichilema’s image surfaced on social media alleging that the items were donated by the UPND leader to the Ministry of Health for the Cholera fight.
Deputy Press Secretary to the UPND President Brian Mwiinga said the public and media will be informed by Mr. Hichilema’s press office of what material support will be donated towards the cholera outbreak fight.
“Therefore, the public is hereby informed to ignore the circulating social media propaganda depicting to be from Mr Hichilema,” Mr Mwiinga said.
“Currently, the team constituted by the UPND President is making frantic efforts to deliver his donations as earlier on there was a challenge from Ministry of Health officials on accepting his donations,” he said.
