Maureen Mwanawasa addressing a rally

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema, Lunte MP the Honourable Felix Mutati, former First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa, National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango and entourage were on Saturday received by large crowds in Chinsali and Mpika Districts where they addressed rallies.

During the visit a number of PF and MMD officials resigned from their respective parties to join the opposition UPND. Leading the PF members was Provincial Information Secretary Mulenga Mwananshiku and PF Shiwangandu Chair lady Stefenia Malama who said PF was Sata and Sata was PF, and so the party died with him.

Speaking during the rallies, Lunte MP Felix Mutati told the crowds that as opposition MPs, they had sat down and scrutinised the people vying for the presidency and concluded that UPND president Hakainde Hichilema is the only suitable candidate to develop the country.

Mutati said Zambia faces numerous economic challenges and needs a strong team of proven economic managers such as Mr. Hichilema to move the country forward.

And the UPND leader Mr. Hichilema said he is in politics as a missionary to improve the economy of the country, unlike others that were serving personal interests.

In Mpika, Mr. Hichilema committed to improve the operations of TAZARA through meaningful dialogue with the Tanzanian government so that the company can be self-sustaining.

He also reiterated that he will work to reduce the price of fertiliser so that peasant farmers can have access to cheaper inputs, grow more and reduce food prices.

The UPND leader also committed to improving the tourism sector in Mpika so that local communities can benefit from wildlife as opposed to the current situation where only foreigners were benefiting.

He also emphasised that the campaign is based on the platform of unity across political divides and called on all well-meaning citizens to campaign and vote for the UPND so as to transform the economy of the country.

“When you combine the various skills that will form part of our team, such as Felix Mutati, Mutale Nalumango and others, you can be rest assured that the country will be in safe hands. My integrity is also what I bring to the political arena and I am in it to fix the economy,” he said.

Mr. Hichilema thanked the people of Chinsali and Mpika for coming out in large numbers and listen to his message.

After the rally, Mr. Hichilema and his entourage toured Mpika market and mingled with traders before driving to Chief Chikwanda’s palace where he was welcomed by the traditional leader.

Mr. Hichilema assured the traditional leader that he will never meddle in traditional affairs and he will respect and value the wise counsel from traditional leaders. Chief Chikwanda said he was touched by the strong and powerful message delivered by Mr. Hichilema.
