This is the worst leadership since colonial times-HH

Filed under: Latest News,Politics |

United Party for National Development (UPND) President, Hakainde Hichilema says Zambians only have one country therefore they should all get involved and take charge of their destiny.

And Hichilema says that he is committed to restoring law and order immediately he is ushered into State House after 12th August, this year.

Addressing marketeers, small scale and medium entrepreneurs and tax/ bus drivers from Central, Copperbelt, Luapula, Eastern and Northern Provinces this afternoon, Hichilema reiterated that once in office, the UPND will create an enabling business environment to support the various businesses in the country.

He also bemoaned the unprecedented levels of poverty in the country, saying he has never witnessed such levels of suffering in his entire life.

“This is the worst leadership since the colonial masters. At my age, I have never seen the people of Zambia suffer the way they are suffering [now]. This BOMA is worse off than the colonial regime. That is why we need change,” said Hichilema.

Hichilema said the PF is trying to use the ‘draconian’ Cybersecurity Bill NAB2 to gag citizens and stop them from using internet services.

He said no media house will be shut and that political interference in the operations of the media would be a thing of the past immediately he is sworn in.

“No media house will be shut down during our tenure in official. One of the laws we are going to reverse is the cyber security Bill. I don’t whether Mr Lungu is going to sign the Bill, though I know he will.

“They want you to stop using internet. This is the channel we are going to use to deliver health care to our people. We will use technology to deliver services to our farmers. Our duty is to use internet so that when there is an accident drivers can easily notify the insurance company to come to their aid,” he said

He has since promised a week-long mobilization tour of the Copperbelt.

“I want thank our colleagues who have travelled all the way from Copperbelt, Northern, Southern and any other part of the country who have joined us this afternoon.

“We want to thank you for coming here. I want to assure you that I will be coming to the Copperbelt and I will be spending a week there,” he said. -Lusaka Times
