Now UPND goes for country-wide rallies

The opposition UPND is scheduled to kick-start country-wide rallies to address a number of issues affecting the people.

Sources in the party have revealed that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his team will address the first rally in Lusaka’s Kanyama Compound on Sunday 9th September, 2012.

Sources have told Watchdog that there has been so many calls from different parts of the country for the UPND leader to visit areas and communities that feel let down by the PF government.

Since coming into power, President Michael Sata has not gone back to the people to thank them for the victory and explain his government’s polices on many issues.

Farmers are also complaining about poor agro policies that have led to reduced satellite depots for maize marketing and a reduction in cotton prices this year.

There has also been an out-cry over increased electricity load-shedding in the country that has affected businesses and homes.

Other issues to be addressed are those to do with poor governance that has led to deportation on the Catholic Priest from Lundazi in Eastern Province who was preaching about poverty plus the police brutality and intimidation that have become part of the PF government.

Just this week, police surrounded the opposition party headquarters searching for seditious documents, but the search yielded nothing.
