I am challenging President Lungu to a debate on live TV. I am challenging him to go head-to-head with me to debate our plans and policies for the country so the people can decide for themselves who they want to see in State House for the next five years.
This is an opportunity for us to lead by example and send a strong message to our people that we believe that competition in a democracy is about the exchange of ideas and civilised discussion, not violence, slander and intimidation.
This is a chance for us to focus on the issues that are impacting the daily lives of our people, such as joblessness, rising food prices and the difficulty of accessing even basic health services. It is a chance for us to educate voters on the choice they face on 11th August 2016.
