Hiring Thugs Will Not Reduce Meali-Meal Prices – Hichilema

Opposition United Party for National Development, UPND, leader Hakainde Hichilema has vowed never to give in to rising levels of intimidation and threats on his life but continue speaking for Zambians.

Hichilema was forced to abort a live radio programme in Ndola on Saturday and escaped through the roof at SUN FM. The cadres, carrying guns and machetes, were throwing stones at the radio station and were waiting to attack Hichilema.

A chilling video of Hichilema’s escape was exclusively posted to social media by Zambia Reports and has triggered condemnation of the deteriorating situation in the country.

“It will not make people forget the many unfulfilled campaign promises that they (PF) made in the run up to the elections. Paying thugs to harass me will not make the price of mealie meal go down,” he declared on his Facebook page.

“My Message to the PF is that hiring thugs to harass me and my team will not make the problems they have created for the ordinary citizen disappear.

“Paying thugs to harrass me will not unblock the sewer lines in Masala area of Ndola which are in a deplorable situation.

“The PF can hire as many thugs as they want but that will not stop me from speaking for the people who deserve better than the PF “BUFI”.”
