Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) Leader Edith Nawakwi has appealed to the people of Southern Province not to be used by the opposition UPND to get into government.
Mrs Nawakwi said the Opposition UPND is not interested in developing the province but uses it to get votes.
She has since called on the people to say no to divisions and tribalism brought by the UPND to the province.
“No one owns Southern Province and Hakainde Hichilema should be taught a lesson for saying ‘ Ichi Chesu’ and not delivering development to the area,” she said.
“The people of Southern Province should say no to tribalism and divisions brought by UPND.”
Mrs Nawakwi said the people of Southern Province are just used by the UPND to get into parliament but are left behind in development.
She has called on them to teach the opposition a lesson by voting for President Edgar Chagwa Lungu who is committed to bringing development to all parts of the country.
Mrs Nawakwi said that only President Lungu can bring development to the province and should therefore be voted back into office for continued development.
She stated that President Lungu is rebuilding the nation and leaving no one behind therefore the province should rally behind him.
Meanwhile, North Western Province Patriotic Front Chairperson JACKSON KUNGO has thanked the people of that province for the overwhelming support they gave to President EDGAR LUNGU during his two days working visit to the province.
Mr KUNGO says people came out in numbers to welcome the President in all the districts he visited, an indication that they are resolved to vote for President LUNGU during the August 12 general election.
He added that people of North Western Province are tired of voting for the opposition and that they are now determined to work with the rulling party in order to partake of the national cake .
Meanwhile Mr. Kungo has assured the People of Mfumbwe that the President would visit the district on his next visit to the Province.
Mr KUNGO said the President was going to reach Mfumbwe district as well on his visit to the Province but could not do so owing to a tight schedule.
Kungo has since urged the people of Mfumbwe and NORTH WESTERN PROVINCE as a whole to turn up in large numbers and vote for President Lungu and the Patriotic Front for more development in the area, come august 12.
