PF wants to bring dictatorship – HH

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema says the PF wants to introduce dictatorship.

But PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba says Hichilema is a liar. Meanwhile, chief Mukonchi says he is not ashamed of supporting PF because it is a party for poor people.

Speaking during a rally in Kapiri Mposhi on Friday to drum up support for Lawrence Zimba, UPND candidate in the April 23 parliamentary by-election, Hichilema said that the government wanted to revert to one-party state.

“Why are we having by-elections soon after another by-election? The PF are causing these unnecessary by-elections,” said Hichilema. “The PF want to introduce a one-party state. They want to introduce dictatorship. No! We don’t want . . . we do not want dictatorship, we want democracy.”

He said President Sata lied to the people of Zambia during his campaigns in 2011.

“Me, I am not afraid to say that the PF lied during their campaigns in 2011. I repeat, I am not afraid.
