The opposition UPND has been conducting campaign road shows around Lusaka Townships unimpeded with its leader Hakainde Hichilema at the head of it.
Hichilema and the UPND candidate Kangwa Chileshe has touched base with possible voters in Lusaka without anyone stopping them and are bubbling with confidence.
Below is what Hichilema has written as part of his campaign message:
We have a task to take care of civil servants, all security wings including the Zambia Police who are working under very depressing conditions.
We will better their lives by improving their conditions of services and this will be done by de-politcising these vital security wings.
To our men and women in uniform and all civil servants, we say; do not lose hope because help is on the way. When in government, we will not only ensure your independence but also empower you with life and family supporting necessities.
Pastor Kangwa Chileshe is our torchbearer and we stated this to our brothers and sisters in Kabwata and parts of Chawama Constituencies when we conducted a road show ahead of the Lusaka Mayoral election on 26th July, 2018. Through him, our journey for a better Lusaka and Zambia as a whole has just been ignited.
Together with those willing to move our Country forward, we say; the time is now. And to those in the habit of attacking citizens, we say; meet the citizens as they defend themselves as it is their constitutional and fundamental human right.
Citizens have the power to decide who should run their affairs correctly and fix our country’s broken economy.
In fact no one should abuse citizens nor even stop them from following the law which gives them such powers.
The UPND will be attacking poverty, broken economy and other detrimental effects of bad leadership but again defend itself from unwarranted attacks.
May God Bless our Country!
