United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has dismissed assertions by the opposition Patriotic Front (PF) party that his party was working in a collision with the ruling MMD.
Speaking on arrival at Chipata airport yesterday on the start of his campaign tour of the eastern province, Mr Hichilema said the assertions by the PF were mere propaganda meant to divert public attention from their failure to campaign.
Mr Hichilema wondered how the PF could come up with such wild claims when he was standing as one of the presidential candidates in the forth coming elections.
The UPND leader told jubilant supporters who included some of the aspiring candidates that his party was determined to retire the ruling MMD after the 20th September, 2011.
He said those in business would be assisted so that they could grow their business,
