Ahead of local by-elections on Thursday, UPND President Hakainde Hichilema addressed crowds at a rally at Mbila, Itezhi Itezhi District of Central Province yesterday, alongside ADD President Charles Milupi and UPND National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango.
It was his first rally address since his release from prison where he was held for 127 days. He later summarised his appeal to voters as follows:
“We mean business and can assure you of a greater tomorrow, and we wish to state that any matters before the courts of law will be allowed to continue.
We know farmers are crying, students are crying, youths are crying, just like the way our God, Almighty, heard our cry in prayer when we were unjustly and brutally arrested and detained. Our God will again hear us, for He has never let his people down.
Pray unceasingly, we love you and may God bless you all.”
