United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that the Patriotic Front is under pressure following the ruling party’s purported loss of popularity throughout the country as evidenced by the losses suffered in the recent by-elections.
Hichilema says the ruling party has messed up on so many things which has angered the majority of the Zambian that voted them in office.
Hichilema says time has passed for the Patriotic Front to make up for the unfulfilled campaign promises because the people of Zambia are not ready to be cheated anymore.
He adds that he is aware that the Patriotic Front is very angry with him because his party has managed to penetrate in areas they did not expect the UPND to do so.
The UPND leader says his party is ready to stand its ground and tell the Zambian people the truth.
Meanwhile, Hichilema has appealed to the Patriotic Front to stop contravening the electoral Act.
He says the ruling party should also allow the Electoral Commission of Zambia to operate independently.
