Blaming me is not a solution - HH

UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has denied inciting people on the Copperbelt to riot over the alleged sale of ZAFFICO to Chinese Nationals.

Speaking in response to accusations made by Copperbelt Province Minister Japhen Mwakalombe that Hichilema caused the riots that broke out in Kalulushi and Kitwe over the sale of ZAFFICO, the UPND leader told HOT FM listeners: “You had Mwakalombe on that Radio yesterday saying Hakainde incited the riots that is not true. I did not incite anybody to riot. If you check social media, before I went on SUN FM there were already issues in ZAFFICO”.

He explained that the people of Zambia are already aware of what is going on in the country including the sale of ZNBC, issues at the Natural Resources Development College and the rampant corruption in road construction and people do not need to be incited to riot.

Hichilema further stated that blaming him for the fall of the Kwacha against the US dollar, delayed rains, university students’ situation and the many other challenges facing the nation is not a solution to the problems.
