Fellow citizens, it is with a heavy heart that once again I address the serious matter of gender-based violence at our homes and work places.
Zambia has for many years been implementing initiatives aimed at eradicating gender-based violence, particularly against women.
The recent gruesome cases where a male teacher assaulted the headmistress, a Sr. Chakupalesa, of Roma Girls Secondary School and a woman of Chongwe severed her husband’s private parts, a Mr. Victor Mulaule, should be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians.

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.
