Kafue rallyHichilema who is expected to file in his nominations Friday, December 19, 2015 at 3pm held rallies in the two districts where he ‘preached’ the message of a better united Zambia once he is elected as President.

The Zambia United Campaign Tour moves to the Copperbelt province on Saturday. He is expected to visit markets hold rallies in Ndola in the morning and another rally in Kitwe in the afternoon at Freedom Park.

Below is a statement issued by HH Friday morning:

As I file for my nomination today I continue to be disturbed by the level of chaos and disorderly conduct in the PF that has created widespread concern for all peace-loving Zambians.

As law-abiding democrats, the UPND recognizes that article 38(2) of the Constitution means that Dr. Guy Scott is acting President for 90 days, following the death of the late President Mr. Michael Sata. I agree with the distinguished Professor Michelo Hasungule’s statement that this is the only constitutional option.

Dr. Scott has expressed his commitment to delivering a fair election, and we call upon him to do everything possible to ensure that this happens.

The moves and in-fighting in the Patriotic Front against Dr. Scott are threatening the peace of our nation. The determination of PF leadership to abuse state resources to pursue their selfish ambitions threatens our democracy, the rule of law, and our standing in the eyes of the international community.

Government ministers have forgotten their oath of office, and their duty to exercise their powers to govern for the benefit of ALL Zambians.

Even the most loyal PF members are leaving the party in their thousands, despairing as their party and its promises for development fall in tatters around them.

As the President of the UPND and on behalf of all its members, let me assure each and every law-abiding member of the PF that they will find a welcome home in the UPND.

And whilst the PF fight amongst each other, Zambians all over the country are looking for leadership to lead them out their daily struggle and suffering. The UPND is the only party that is on the ground, with a clear campaign message and a vision for the development of our country. We will take office on 20th January 2015, and restore peace, order, patriotism and integrity to our great nation.

Hakainde Hichilema

UPND President

  3. Off course, Edgar Chagwa Lungu won’t file in tomorrow or any other day. This means PF has no presidential candidate come 20th Jan 2015. Nothing personal, it is the law which says that and no matter how corrupt Acting CJ is, there is nothing she can do here. That is why HH says, PF members are welcome to join UPND.

  6. Lets test and see that the Lord is good in all His dealings. Thank you Lord for the way you are leading HH. You will not leave him halfway. What you have started, you will bring it to completion in Jesus Name. To you be the glory great things you have done. The previous leadership failed you, now you are bringing up a new leader to take Zambia to the level you intended to even when Mazoka was unfairly treated.
