It was a wonderful day for us in Kasama with President Hakainde Hichilema and the entourage.
The rally was live on Muvi TV. UPND campaign messages is to once more restore the collapsed economy.
Those that mostly worked close to the late Micheal Chilufya Sata like former Republican Vice President Guy Scott, Hon Miles Sampa, Hon Mulenga Sata, Former PF Secretary General Bridget Atanga were there including Hon Bob Sichinga and Hon Lupando Mwape.
There are many others like Hon Levy Ngoma, Hon Silvya Masebo, Hon Obvious Mwaliteta, Hon Keith Mukata and other former Members of Parliament like Hon Situmbeko Musokotwane and others that have joined and are working with UPND.
This clearly indicates that UPND has attracted those that want to serve the country as well as take over from the Patriotic Front because it has failed to govern. The Party has also recieved a lot of new members from other political parties and we call them ambassadors for change.
Countrymen and women gone are the days when politicians used lies, gifts and money to win elections. It ended in 2011 when the Late President Michael Chilufya Sata won elections despite Former Republican President Rupiah Banda spending a lot of money on materials.
This time Zambians are looking for someone with a vision, someone to make Zambia a better place to live in. My President Hakainde Hichilema, has shared his vision and today Zambians believe he can do better than President Edgar Lungu, hence the growth of the Party.
PRESIDENT EDGAR LUNGU HAS FAILED AND HE SHOULD GIVE WAY TO A VISIONARY LEADER
1 The treated of the family of the late President Sata, was uncalled for. Like the occasion where the widow Dr Kaseba, was evicted because rentals were not paid on time, surely can government fail to pay. It is because he doesn’t care, so the question is if he can do that to the widow of a Man who contributed to what he is today do you think he can attend to the rest of the widows in the country the answer is NO.
Our son Mulenga Sata, left the party founded by his father not because he wanted favours as they claim but because he has seen that President Lungu has diverted from the vision of his late father whose policies were pro-poor.
2 President Lungu has neglected farmers look at the manner farming inputs were distributed, he reduced packs and at the same time delayed to pay them. UPND will take care of farmers because the President himself is a farmer and knows what a farmer needs to produce a better harvest.
3. President Lungu told miners on the Copperbelt that no one was going to lose their jobs and that 500,000 new jobs were going to be created.
4. The price of cost of living is high for many Zambians, many can not afford three square meals a day.
5. President Lungu has mistreated students in higher institutions of learning, due to closure of the institutions, only to uturn on the matter due to pressure.
We in the UPND are determined to work towards a better Zambia for all, through the TEN POINT PLAN.
