Opposition inciting Zambians – UPND

THE ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) has accused opposition political parties of allegedly inciting Zambians to rise against the new dawn administration.
Lusaka Province youth chairperson, Anderson Banda said in an interview that it was sad that the opposition had failed to provide effective checks and balances to the new dawn administration and had now resorted to causing confusion in the country.
“Harry Kalaba [Citizens First president] is a jealous man, he is a jealous politician, he is bitter, he is envious of what the UPND government has achieved so far. It is totally illogical and rather disappointing for a person who is a citizen of this country to bury his head in the sand and start saying that the UPND government has done nothing.
“I think those comments are coming as a result of jealousy and envy and to me Mr Kalaba is a faded politician as things stand. Of course he has been overrating himself, he thinks he is a political giant but to the contrary, he is proving to be a faded politician and he is adding very little input in our democracy and political dispensation,” Mr Banda said.
He advised Mr Kalaba to expend his energies on convincing the Zambians to vote for him if he believed he was a better leader than President Hakainde Hichilema.
Mr Banda was reacting to Mr Kalaba’s sentiments that the UPND had completely failed to deliver on its campaign promises.
