Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema (HH) is expected to file his nomination papers tomorrow at Mulungushi International Conference Center.

“Tomorrow as I file in for nomination for the election as Republican President at Mulungushi International Conference Centre, I wish to appeal to our supporters to maintain the highest levels of order and discipline.

“We should not allow those who wish to see this process degenerate into chaos, an excuse to disturb this important democratic undertaking that is supposed to be a source of joy, patriotism and solidarity for all Zambians,” he said.

HH said in the same vein, he wishes to appeal to the police to exercise the maximum amount of professionalism and fairness adding that UPND supporters are fellow Zambians who are only exercising their right to assemble and associate.

They should not be viewed as your adversaries. I thank you and wish everyone God’s blessings.

Meanwhile, while many are wondering as to who his running would be, the party has warned that there is a plot to arrest him.

We have followed social media information circulations suggesting that former Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo, Major Richard Kachingwe, former Kasama Central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and former NDC President Chishimba Kambwili in collusion with some villagers in Southern Province have conspired to have HH arrested.

We wish to warn that UPND will treat the aforementioned persons as ordinary citizens as many Zambians may be aware that non of them are government officials.

We also wish to remind Edgar Lungu not to dare arrest HH.

UPND Secretary General, Batuke Imenda said:

We have records of statements made by some PF officials stating that HH will never rule while one PF leader said certainly not HH and if HH thinks they will use lies and abuse of authority to get at HH, they will regret.

Arresting HH will be at your own peril; it will be a costly exercise which many of them will pay heavily.

We shall not tolerate abuse of police to arrest our dearest President between now and August 12th , 2021.

This is our resolution nationwide.

Come 12th August 2021 President Hakainde Hichilema is going to state house through a democratic process.
