Today UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his entourage continued on the campaign trail in Copperbelt rural, where they are sharing the UPND’s 10 Point Plan for Zambia far and wide.

Speaking at a public rally this afternoon at Mutaba grounds, in Kafulafuta Constituency of Copperbelt rural, UPND presidential candidate Hakainde Hichilema disclosed that once elected President he will intensify the electrification of rural areas in the country as a means to boost economic activities. The UPND leader said access to electricity will help create jobs for people in rural areas by empowering small businesses such as hair salons.

Meanwhile, the UPND President has reiterated his desire to transform the economy through diversification programmes that will focus on value addition industries, and his commitment to revamping the agriculture sector by focusing on lowering the cost of inputs.

The UPND leader said his government will promote cattle rearing in rural areas with the objective of increasing farming, milk and beef production, which can then be exported to earn the country income.

UPND Copperbelt Province Chairperson Elisha Matambo also addressed the audience, saying that under the PF, the agriculture and education sectors have been neglected, hence the unprecedented levels of poverty in rural areas.

Mr. Matambo called on the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema, once given a mandate to run the affairs of the country, to pay particular attention to rural areas, especially given that he was also raised in the village.

Speaking at a public rally held at Mishikishi ground in Masaiti later this afternoon, Mr. Hichilema assured people of quality jobs once elected President.

The UPND President said this cannot be realised under the PF leadership however, due to lack of economic understanding and misplaced priorities.

He says his government will industrialise Masaiti District so that local people can have jobs.

Meanwhile, Mr. Hichilema says he will be a listening President, and that through the UPND 10 Point Plan, he will ensure that quality healthcare is taken closer to the people.

Also speaking in Masaiti the former Minister of Lands Gladys Lundwe said that Copperbelt rural is underdeveloped because of a lack of quality leadership and concerned President.

Ms. Lundwe appealed to the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema to ensure that the challenges facing residents in Copperbelt’s rural areas are attended with urgency once he is elected into office.
