Thousands of enthusiastic Solwezi residents turned up to listen to Hichilema explain his 10 Point Plan for the country’s economic revival.

Earlier, the UPND strongman addressed huge rallies at Manyama in Solwezi West and Kasapa in Solwezi East constituencies.

And the opposition leader has bemoaned the high poverty levels in a province that is a major contributor to the country’s economy and rich in mineral wealth. 

He promised that the UPND 10 Point Plan for Zambia will see the country harness these resources and empower local people and businesses to grow into thriving and prosperous communities in which every Zambian gets a fair slice of the national cake.

He urged Solwezi residents to turn out in large numbers and vote for the UPND in the August 11 general elections.

He said his party has a plan to protect the vote and no one will be allowed to rig the elections, adding that it is clear that the country wants change on August 11.

After the Solwezi rally, Hakainde Hichilema said:

Today we concluded our tour of North Western Province with rallies in Solwezi West, Solwezi East and Solwezi Central.

North Western is a major contributor to our economy and rich in mineral wealth. Yet the majority of its people remain in poverty. This story of a rich country but poor people is sadly written all over our nation.

The UPND believes the reason Zambians have failed to benefit properly from the vast natural wealth with which we have been blessed comes down to failed leadership.

Under Lungu and the PF we have a government that helps itself to healthcare while our people are lying sick on the floor, a government that helps itself to salary increases while thousands are made jobless, and a government that leaves our students without meal allowances while ministers dine out during extravagant trips overseas.

As UPND we are offering voters the chance for change on 11th August 2016. We are offering voters a chance for a government that does not shirk its responsibilities or seek to hide behind excuses.

Our 10 Point Plan will harness our vast natural resources and empower local people and businesses to grow into thriving and prosperous communities in which every Zambian gets a fair slice of the national cake.

By investing in education for all and the teaching of practical skills on the one hand, and supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs on the other, we will deliver growth that is inclusive for a united, prosperous and equitable Zambia.
