UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has asked people to denounce the PF’s incompetence by voting them out of office in 2016 or even earlier than that.
Mr. Hichilema who was speaking during rallies at Inyango and Lukena in Mangango constituency said President Sata was ignorant about agriculture and other sectors of the economy and that was why Zambian s had been subjected to abject poverty.
He urged the people of Mangango to vote for UPND’s Godwin Putu as a away of showing their anger to PF.
“You must be annoyed people because PF and Sata have made you go hungry, children cannot go to school, mealie meal is so expensive. Sata has killed agriculture because he doesn’t understand agriculture, he does not even have a tomato garden in the back yard and I challenge him to come and dispute that right under this tree,” said Hichilema amid applauses of Wa taha wa taha (“he is coming, he is coming”) from the audience.
He reiterated that the country was on auto pilot because the President was no where to be seen and his government was disoriented. He wondered who the President of PF and Zambia was because Sata had continued delegating important functions to ceremonial vice president Guy Scott and now even to cabinet ministers.
He jokingly told the local people that if he ever hears them chanting PF slogans he will personally take a whip and whip them all. “If I hear you saying PF, PF, mina ku shapa wena, Wena una masheleni (I will whip you when I hear you saying PF, PF when you don’t have money, you don’t have food,” he said.
Meanwhile police allowed the UPND to have their rallies in spite of earlier trying to turn away people that there will be no rally,later the policemen were heard congratulating Hichilema for maintaining peace and pleaded that he should not forget them when he becomes President to which he replied that he understands how Sata abuses them.
