UPND President Hakainde Hichilema claims President Edgar Lungu has invited three witchdoctors from Malawi to help him win the 2016 elections.
The UPND Leader says he has intelligence information that President Lungu has allegedly invited the three witchdoctors so that they can perform their task at State House during the time he will be working from Kitwe.
And Mr. Hichilema has questioned how genuine President Lungu’s calls for people to reconcile are, when days after the prayer and fasting Police were sent to beat up students at the Copperbelt University (CBU).
He says instead of listening to the cries of the student and paying them better allowances, President Lungu is busy sending Police officers to beat them up.
He says there is no doubt that President Lungu is using the name of God in vain to win the people’s sympathies ahead of the 2016 elections.
Mr Hichilema however states that the people of Zambia have already made up their minds after enduring suffering under the PF government.
He says the cost of living in the country is high and that farmers cannot afford to buy fertilizer which is now costing K500 per bag from at K200 four years ago.
Mr. Hichilema said this in Kabwe this afternoon when he received district, constituency and ward level defectors from MMD, PF, NAREP and Rainbow party.
When contacted for a comment, Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda promised to get back, while further efforts by QFM to get him proved futile.
Speaking at the same event, UPND Vice President for Administration Geoffrey Mwamba says Zambians rejected the MMD which the PF is now working with by embracing some of its former Ministers.
Mr. Mwamba says by embracing former MMD Ministers, President Lungu is showing that he has run out of ideas on governance.
Mr. Mwamba has since encouraged the young generation to register as voters so that they vote the PF out of office in next year’s elections, adding that Zambians made a mistake to vote for the PF in January presidential election.
