… And says Shakafuswa is the most intelligent of all candidates contenting the Katuba by-election

United Party for National Development UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has said the ruling Patriotic Front has brought more problems to Zambians than any other Government in the country, reports Zambian Eye Correspondent.

Speaking to Macha Radio Station in a telephone interview from Katuba on Wednesday, the opposition leader said for the first time in the history of the country PF government is the first government to have failed to deliver farming inputs to small scale farmers in time together with the failed implementation of the new constitution.

” PF opened their docket of lies to Zambians with 90 days delivery period of the new constitution plus the failure to deliver farm inputs to farmers in time.”says Hichilema

He said people of Katuba constituency should consider all this as they go to the polls next Tuesday and bear in mind that UPND is the only party available to to serve them from what he termed as bondage the PF has brought to the country.

Hichilema said his party is not bothered with words uttered by some petty politicians like the National Revolution Party (NRP) leader Cosmo Mumba who claims to be a force in the forthcoming by-elections in Katuba.

”Cosmo is aligned to PF so for him to claim that competition in Katuba is only between His candidate and that of PF its a mission to please his masters in PF.” charged the opposition leader.

Hichilema further praised the UPND candidate in Katuba, Jonas Shakafuswa as a development oriented man who can bring development to the people of that constituency.

“Jonas is not only popular in that area he is also the most intelligent candidate among those who stood for that seat, he is a man of development that is why UPND adopted him,” says Hichilema.

He said Katuba is underdeveloped and needs a development soldier like Jonas shakafuswa who knows every corner of the constituency.He also denounced violence among political party cadres ahead of the forthcoming by-elections in Katuba constituency.

Meanwhile UPND Chairperson for Elections Ackson Sejani has refuted the claims by some media houses that the beating of NRP president Cosmo Mumba was characterised by his party cadres.

He said UPND is a peaceful party hence attributing Cosmo Mumba’s beating to its cadres is uncalled for. He said all UPND campaigners in Katuba were cautioned to conduct peaceful campaigns.
