Patriotic Front Secretary General, Hon Davies Mwila has challenged UPND leader Mr Hakainde Hichilema to tell the Zambian people where he wants Government to print ballot papers from following the laters protest against Government’s decision to print the 2021 ballot papers within Zambia.
Speaking when he welcomed 442 defectors from the opposition UPND in Luano District of Central Province, Mr Mwila wondered why Mr Hakainde Hichilema is against the printing of Ballot papers locally when he is the same person who condemned the printing of ballot papers abroad claiming that the PF was rigging the elections through printing of Ballot papers abroad.
Mr Mwila challenged Mr Hichilema to tell the Zambian people whether he wants Government to print the ballot papers from his home since he was uncomfortable with Government printing the ballot papers locally and internationally.
Mr. Mwila welcomed the defectors and encouraged them to feel free to participate in all PF activities since they were now bonafide members of the Party.
