HH SaundersPresident Michael Sata has alleged that opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has bought ruling PF chitenge material to fake defections in Livingstone.

The President was in Livingstone to campaign for the PF candidate Evans Lawrence ahead of the polls next week.

At Hichilema’s rally in Maramba one of the townships within Livingstone on Saturday Political Activist Dante Saunders handed him with a broom so he could sweep State House and government of corruption when he takes over as president.
