Police Chuck Out Opposition Leader from Chikankata Agric Show

An opposition political party has announced intentions to start a fertilizer manufacturing company in the wake of fermers struggling to access one of the key inputs in agriculture.

United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) party leader Charles Chanda said this when he joined farmers at the at Chikankata Agriculture show.

He said that the delay in the supply of fertilizer among farming communities was affecting the agriculture activities in the area.

He clarified that the fertilizer making business should not be seen to competing with companies but a business venture that needed to be appreciated by all well-meaning Zambian.

β€œIf others people can be allowed to import fertilizer from abroad and distribute in Zambia, I see no reason why UPPZ can be stopped from putting up a plant in Zambia to manufacture fertilizer,” he said.

Meanwhile a Police officer forced UPPZ president to abandon his tour of the stands at the Chikankata Agriculture Show after accusing him of bringing politics in the show arena.

The Cop told Chanda that he was under instruction to stop touring the stand until the guest of honour left.

Chanda however advised the cop not to be used by politicians to bent frustrating of the good will of citizens.

β€œLike any other citizens, I am entitled to visit stands and associate with other show goers but for the sake of peace, I will leave the Chikankata Agriculture show,” he said.

    Mr politician, who are your advisors?Do you have campaign wits?That was a wrong platform for such utterances. You can wait for ZNBC’s programme-Race to plot 1in 2021.Hope you will heed to my free advice. You were lucky to meet a cop,not intoxicated cadres. Sharp madala!!!
