UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has assured the people of Mibenge area in Lufwanyama on the Copperbelt that he is 100% focused on winning the fight against poverty in Zambia.


Speaking at a public rally this afternoon Mr. Hichilema bemoaned the unprecedented high levels of poverty in the country, especially in rural areas.


He commented: “Copperbelt province should be a hub of both industrial and agriculture activities in the country and the region beyond, but these sectors have not been fully exploited under the PF due to poor quality leadership. We need to fix this.”


Mr. Hichilema says that under the UPND 10 Point Plan he will ensure that the untapped potential in agriculture in Copperbelt rural is fully realised so as to lower the price of mealie meal and other essentials.


Meanwhile, UPND Copperbelt Province Chairperson Elisha Matambo added that due to the high poverty levels in Copperbelt rural people are finding it hard to keep their children in school.


He added that people in the area are expecting that once elected as republican president, Mr. Hichilema will stabilise the country’s economy through delivery of the 10 Point Plan.


Mr. Hichilema has begun holding public rallies on the Copperbelt, with the first one held at Mibenge school grounds. Hundreds of Lufwanyama residents turned out to listen to his message of hope and economic liberation.

    • HH, GBM and all UPND speakers at rallies should ALWAYS link the ten point plan to the wrong things the PF have done that have destroyed the agricultural sector, mining sector etc and generally the economy. Thats not talking about personalities. This is the only way to justify why they (PF) should be voted out. Otherwise if they concentrate on the ten point plan only without mentioning PF misgovernance, then the PF could also say they have a new plan in their manifesto. Let them make a list of all the wrongs (can easily make 100 items) the PF has done in the 5 years in power. At every conor these should be mentioned showing clearly why PF should go.

  7. What a sharp contrast in IQ, between HH and ECL. ECL yesterday wasted time attacking HH and GBM, while HH today spent time articulating issues and his vision for Zambia. My vote can never be wasted on someone whose behavior is immature. I need issues for my vote and so far HH and team are coming out convincing for my vote.ECL is busy machinating unwarranted attacks on civilians and the members of UPND, that’s failure.
