Reports that the PF government is considering issuing another US$1 billion international Eurobond specifically targeted at the agriculture sector does not surprise us in the UPND because we still insist that the current regime has no capacity to generate revenue from local resources.
But what is now becoming reckless by the PF is that we seem to be moving to a situation where every sector or government ministry will now be borrowing for its operations.
I will continue touring the country and spreading the message of love, unity and development among all Zambians despite the PF repressive and dictatorial Public Order Act which has limited people’s freedoms, says opposition UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.
Speaking when he toured Kaoma, Luampa, Mangango, and Nkeyema Districts of Western province where he continued receiving defectors from PF, MMD, ULP, and ADD to the UPND, Mr. Hichilema maintained that PF was a one-term mistake government that Zambians cannot allow continue.
UPND president Hakainde Hichilema says the forthcoming parliamentary by-elections in Mangango constituency in Kaoma district of Western province will serve as a litmus test for himself and President Michael Sata.
Mr Hichilema said a vote for a Member of Parliament in Mangango constituency will not just be about electing a member of the legislature, but a contest between himself and the republican president.
He said this in an interview yesterday, when he made a stopover in Kaoma where he also visited the district’s two main markets before briefly addressing party sympathisers at Isha Mbingo lodge.
