UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema says he and his party are ready for the presidential by-election.
Hichilema told radio phoenix early Wednesday morning that he will start campaigning ‘today’.
He said his party has a team to develop Zambia.
Hichilema said late president Michael Sata did the best he could for Zambia and that he meant well but that the country needs to do certain things to move forward.
He said if the PF had given the people a proper constitution that provides for a presidential running mate among other issues, the country would have avoided this by-election and spared the scarce resources.
