United Party for National Development President, Hakainde Hichilema says by-elections are unnecessary and a waste of taxpayers money.

Mr. Hichilema said that the Patriotic Front government is spending K 10 Billion on unnecessary and greed driven by-elections. He said by-elections have an impact on job creation which the PF has failed to do.

The opposition leader said the Patriotic Front government is spending money recklessly in an extravagant and imprudent way, which money would be used supporting to stabilize the prices of fuel and mealie meal, in order for the ordinary Zambian to afford three meals a day.

Mr.Hichilema further said his party was ready for Kafulafuta parliamentary by-election and Yengwe ward by-election and that their chances of winning the two seats are high, adding that the PF had failed to run the country and had broken promises.
