“ It is the people of Zambia suffering and struggling to feed their families who need attention from PF and Sunday Chanda and not President Hakainde Hichilema. He has a task to provide checks and balances and as UPND we are so proud to have a President with a vision and love for the people of Zambia,” said Mr Mwaliteta.
He said President Hichilema understands every corner of this country and knows the needs of the people that is why he has the vision to build a better life for all.
